Redefining Western Civilization

Having seen how his forefathers successfully redefined America out of existence to suit themselves with their ahistorical Melting Pot mythology, Ben Shapiro is now attempting to redefine Western Civilization in order to better suit his Neo-Palestinian perspective. That’s what it means for him to be on “the right side of history”. From a comment on the Darkstream:

I mentioned his Tweet about his recent book and listed him the three cores ofWestern Civilization. It was a real mention, not a comment over a screenshot

Western Civilization:

European etnichities  ✔️

Greco-roman heritage✔️

Christianity✔️( the most important)

Who is rewriting it Ben?

Ben Shapiro @benshapiro
“So, if you’d like to both join the fight against the alt-right and their racist rewriting of “Western civilization,” and fight the horrific media bias of people who lump together conservatism and alt-right racism, buy a copy of my book”

The amount of projection in that tweet is simply astonishing. It is Ben Shapiro who is the openly racist advocate of global imperialism. It is Ben Shapiro who is rewriting the long-settled definition of “Western civilization”. As you should be able to see by now, Shapiro, Peterson, Prager, and others of their Fake Right camouflage are every bit as evil and anti-Western as the SJWs, but they are considerably more dangerous due to their proven ability to disguise their intentions and to fool so many self-styled conservatives into blithely supporting the ongoing destruction of America and the West.

UPDATE: Speaking of Ben Shapiro, keep this inept prediction in mind. He actually claims President Trump is “an odds-on favorite to lose in 2020”:

The Economist: How is the 2020 American presidential election looking to you?

Mr Shapiro: If I had to give odds right now, I’d say that President Trump is an odds-on favorite to lose in 2020. I think that he only has about a 40{7268cf014492308e106993e7b45f4eb601f43560ca0109d183125b422b0d55f5} chance of winning.

He’s not merely a liar, he’s an incompetent political observer. Remember, this is the same foolish chickenhawk who actually wanted the USA to declare war on Iran, Egypt, and nuclear-armed Pakistan AT THE SAME TIME in 2005.

Ben Shapiro Wrecked by One Perfect Tweet!

Ben Shapiro@benshapiro
Omar: The nefarious Joos and their money and dual loyalty undergird American support for Israel.
NYT: The question raised is…is Omar right?

Glenn Greenwald@ggreenwald
Isn’t it notable how the person who mocks every claim of racism & bigotry as the by-product of whiny, authoritarian, overly-sensitive snowflakes suddenly leads the callouts, denunciations, & demands for safe spaces when it comes to his own group? Almost like he has no principles.

I laughed. I cried. Much better than Cats. Now, answer the question, Ben. Is Omar right? And if not, why not?

As others have already observed, nothing demonstrates the lack of influence AIPAC possesses in Washington DC like the entire political class of both the Republican and Democratic parties, including both executive and legislative branches, uniformly denouncing a single Congresswoman criticizing AIPAC’s excessive influence.

Glenn Greenwald has more on the subject:

There are so many points to be made about this episode, each of which could justify its own entire article. It is, for instance, beyond dispute that what Omar is saying is true given that the very first bill passed by the U.S. Senate this year was one that allowed punishment for American citizens who boycott Israel, while U.S. citizens in 26 states are formally punished for boycotting this foreign nation, as we reported last month in the case of a Texas elementary speech pathologist who lost her job for refusing to sign a pledge not to boycott Israel (to keep her job with Texas, she’s allowed to boycott any other nation or even an American state: just not this one favored foreign nation).

Thus far, the two federal courts to rule on such laws have struck them down as unconstitutional violations of the free speech rights of American citizens on behalf of Israel.

How can anyone possibly pretend that it’s invalid or offensive to observe, as Congresswoman Omar did, that some in America demand allegiance to a foreign nation when American citizens are allowed to boycott American states but are punished for boycotting this one specific foreign nation?

As Yoram Hazony writes: “an empire will usually have a particular ruling nation at its heart.” It’s not exactly a mystery which nation presently rules the U.S. empire.

No Venezuelan Spring

The neocons have met with their first setback in South America, according to the Saker:

The standoff between Venezuela and the AngloZionist Empire last week-end has clearly ended in what can only be called a total defeat for Elliott Abrams. While we will never know what was initially planned by the demented minds of the Neocons, what we do know is that nothing critical happened: no invasion, not even any major false flag operation. The most remarkable facet of the standoff is how little effect all the AngloZionist propaganda has had inside Venezuela. There were clashes, including some rather violent ones, across the border, but nothing much happened in the rest of the country. Furthermore, while a few senior officers and a few soldiers did commit treason and join forces with the enemy, the overwhelming majority of the Venezuelan military remained faithful to the Constitution. Finally, it appears that Maduro and his ministers were successful in devising a strategy combining roadblocks, a concert on the Venezuelan side, and the minimal but effective use of riot police to keep the border closed. Most remarkably, “unidentified snipers” did not appear to shoot at both sides (a favorite tactic of the Empire to justify its interventions). I give the credit for this to whatever Venezuelan (or allied) units were in charge of counter-sniper operations along the border.

Outside Venezuela this first confrontation has also been a defeat for the Empire. Not only did most countries worldwide not recognize the AngloZionist puppet, but the level of protest and opposition to what appeared to be the preparations for a possible invasion (or, at least, a military operation of some kind) was remarkably high. While the legacy corporate Ziomedia did what it always does (that is whatever the Empire wants it to do), the Internet and the blogosphere were overwhelmingly opposed to a direct US intervention. This situation also created a great deal of internal political tensions in various Latin American countries whose public opinion remains strongly opposed to any form of US imperial control over Latin America.

In this respect, the situation with Brazil is particularly interesting. While the Brazilian government fully backed the US coup attempt, the Brazilian military was most uncomfortable with this. My contacts in Brazil had correctly predicted that the Brazilian military would refuse to attack Venezuela and, eventually, the Brazilians even issued a statement to that effect.

Meanwhile, the American public is almost entirely indifferent to Venezuela.

The next neocon target

It’s an interesting confession of neocon weakness in the aftermath of the Syrian debacle that they are presently targeting Venezuela instead of another Middle Eastern state. But, as the Saker points out, Russia is not in a position to help defend the Venezuelans as they defended the Syrians from imperial aggression:

I am getting a lot of emails suggesting that Russia might do in Venezuela what she did in Syria. Let me immediately tell you that this is not going to happen. Yes, there are a lot of Russians in Venezuela, but the “Russians are not coming”. For one thing, I will never cease to repeat that the Russian intervention in Syria was a very small one, and that even if this small force proved formidable, it was really acting primarily as a force multiplier for the Iranians, Hezbollah and the Syrian government forces. And yet, even the deployment of this very small force necessitated a huge logistics effort from Russia whose military (being a purely defensive one) is simply not structured for long-distance power projection. Syria is about 1000km from Russia. Venezuela is about 10 times (!) further. Yes, I know,a few Tu-160 visited the country twice now and there are Russian advisors in the country and the Venezuelans have a few pretty good Russian weapons systems. But here, again, this is a game of numbers. Limited numbers of Russian-made combat aircraft (fixed and rotary wing), air defense missiles or even large numbers of advanced MANPADs or assault rifles won’t do the trick against a determined US-Colombian invasion. Finally, there is no Venezuelan equivalent to Iran or Hezbollah (an outside ally and friend) which would be capable and willing to deploy real combat forces for actual, sustained combat against the invader.

I can’t help but suspect that Trump has something up his sleeve here. Is he throwing the neocons into a tar baby, perhaps? Is there anyone, anywhere, who is buying the inept imperial rhetoric about the democratic legitimacy of an unelected foreign puppet?

And it is bizarre that the USA is posturing as if it is going to fix a third-world failed state when it is rapidly transforming into one itself. Apparently the plan is for a second New American Century, albeit in South America now that the Middle East plan has failed.

The Syrian swamp

The Neo-Palestinians are desperate to keep the US military in Syria:

#Breaking: Just in – At least 5 #US troops are killed in new attack in #Syria. #Rojava sources say that attack is most likely carried-out by #Turkey backed Ahrar al-Sharqiya terrorists.

Well, that would appear to be an exaggeration:

#Update: Confirmed! Suicide Attack on Kurdish-US convoy! 5 #Syrian army defence fighters were killed and 2 #US soldiers wounded in the attack near 47 bridge, northeastern #Syria! 

Not our national interest, not our problem. Bring the troops home. And not just from Syria either.

Bow down before the one you serve

Owen refuses to bow before demands that he disavow yours truly:

So, this is pretty funny. It’s just crazy. “Hey Owen, I’m a big fan of your comedy. First saw you on Jay Leno years ago, and then on Crowder. I really want to write you because I want to make sure you have all the information. I know you’re not a racist, but Vox Day is. I’ve read most of his work and he’s trying to ride your coattails and in the process will damage you with misinformation and turn you against good people. Vox Day lies about not being racist because he knows everybody…”

Okay, so he writes me… dude, I’m telling you, it’s like link… link… link. “This is Vox saying this! This is Vox saying that!” So, I write back:

And oh, by the way, he said, “I also wanted to respond, not really related to Vox Day, to a little thing you wrote regarding Jews and it not being possible to be a race and a religion. I’m Jewish, so let’s explain….” Okay, so this is what I write to him.

“When I first did Crowder I got tons of letters just like this from other Jews about how Crowder was a Nazi and supports Palestinian genocide, and I’m better than associating myself with such a monster. My Jew agents HATED Crowder and freaked out when I did his show. And now I’m getting more Jews like you saying that Crowder is great and Vox is a real monster. Very curious what the next wave of Jews will tell me that I must do and who I must disavow.”

And he wrote: “Except Crowder isn’t actually Alt-Right. And there are lying leftists who really ddin’t give any sources or context. I’m not demanding that you disavow….”

Leave me alone, Jews! I can make my own fucking decisions. Do you know how much shit I got when I first hung out with fucking Crowder? Do you have any idea? That was why it is so funny when people are now like, “is Crowder going to still let Owen in his circle?” Hollywood HATES Steven Crowder. Hollywood thinks STevne Crowder is a goose-stepping Nazi. And I’m like, no, he’s a great guy, he’s got a warm heart, he’s fucking hilarious.

Adn they’re like, you can never come back from associating yourself …  I’m like.. WHO IS YOUR MASTER?

And this motherfucker is like, “Vox Day, he said that Norwegians blah blah blah.”

Motherfucker, I don’t fucking care who you think I should associate with or not.

Motherfucker, my Dad broke my heart. My Dad told me I should not talk about trans-kids, keep the money, and publish a book so I could get on the New York Times bestseller list. That was my hero for most of my childhood. He broke my heart. And I didn’t kneel to my own father.

Do you think I’m going to kneel to you?

I find it more than a little ironic that when I criticize Jordan Peterson and Joe Rogan, I am accused of attempting to ride their coattails. And then, because I happen to speak well of Owen Benjamin, I am accused of attempting to ride his coattails. It seems to me that I should just do whatever I think best at all times, because no matter what I do, no matter what I say, I’m going to be attacked, accused, discredited, disqualified, and disavowed.

This is why I stand so strongly by Owen, by Milo, by Mike, by Stefan, and by other courageous individuals who flat-out refuse to accept being told what to think, what to say, and what to do by those who offer them the carrot and the stick. Because regardless of whether I agree with them on any given issue, and regardless of what they might happen to think of me at any given moment, they are men who are the masters of their own souls.

And that is not the easiest thing to do for public figures these days, when men are offered riches in return for selling their souls, and are threatened when they refuse to bow down before their self-proclaimed masters.
