The silence of the cucks

 They took the enemy’s silver. Now they have been given their marching orders. Shed no tears for them. And note, for future reference, that the Littlest Chickenhawk has not contested the fraud in any way, shape, or form.

A media company that employs right wing talk-radio hosts, including Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro, and Dan Bongino, circulated a memo after the pro-Trump riots on Capitol Hill telling hosts to dial down allegations of election fraud, or else face termination.

Cumulus Media sent the internal memo to employees on Wednesday, according to Inside Music Media. The Atlanta-based company owns 416 radio stations throughout the country, many using a talk-radio format with local and national right-wing personalities. (Shapiro has not contested the results of the general election.)

“We need to help induce national calm NOW,” Cumulus’s executive vice president of content Brian Philips wrote in the memo. The company “will not tolerate any suggestion that the election has not ended. The election has been resolved and there are no alternate acceptable ‘paths.’”

Philips added, “If you transgress this policy, you can expect to separate from the company immediately.”

 


They will not tolerate you

 Alexander Macris explains why you will not be spared the repressive tolerance, no matter how beautifully you cuck or how slavishly you denounce everyone to your right:

If you’re reading this, you’re probably right-of-center. But perhaps you feel safe from repressive tolerance because your view are so, well, gosh-darn tolerable. You obviously don’t advocate right-wing violence. You’re not a racist or misogynist or homophobe or bigot. You just want America to have a healthy free market, a strong military, fair trade, low taxes, equality of opportunity, and protection of every citizen’s constitutional rights. You’re just a mainstream, moderate, right-of-center conservative!

Do not fool yourself into believing that because you are a moderate, you are safe from the doctrine of repressive tolerance. Herbert Marcuse explains that the plan is:

withdrawal of tolerance from regressive movements before they can become active; intolerance even toward thought, opinion, and word, and finally, intolerance… toward the self-styled conservatives [Tactics] would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc.

Anyone who opposes any extension of public service, social security, or medical care, or who supports freedom of religion, is to be completely and utterly deplatformed. No freedom of speech, no freedom of assembly, no communication in word, print, or image.

This is the plan; this has always been the plan; all that has been lacking were the means to effectuate the plan. Those means are now at hand. If the President of the United States can be silenced, anyone can be.

And what happens if conservatives resist having their voices suppressed and repressed? Well that’s a problem that requires a solution. And as Herbert Marcuse explains:

[The solution] may require apparently undemocratic means…

I will leave it to the reader to ponder what sort of “undemocratic means” might be justified to solve the problem of conservative thought, opinion, word, action, or being.

This is why they begged for freedom of speech in the first place. To put themselves in a position where they could deny it to everyone else. They demanded the toleration of evil so that they could eventually refuse to tolerate good. The Sin of Jeroboam leads invariably to the destruction of the nation that is foolish enough to commit it. 


Give the girl her props

Apparently Sarah Hoyt is the only non-cuck at Instapundit.

  • When Democratic Party leaders find excuses for left-wing violent protesters and condemn right-wing protesters, one can understand their motives. They see left-wing protesters as being “on their side” and the right-wing protesters as “the enemy.” When Republican Party leaders find excuses for left-wing violent protesters and condemn right-wing protesters, it’s hard not to draw the conclusion that they, too, see the left-wing as “on their side” and the right-wing as “the enemy.”
  • For years I’ve told the left that when they used fraud to win, they’d broken the feedback mechanism.  It didn’t mean their ideas were winning, that people agreed with them, or that they were safe. It was the equivalent of breaking the fire alarm and thinking they were safe from fires. What I never expected was to hear the right condemn the people trying to break out of the burning building, because they don’t hear any fire alarms.
  • The same government that scrutinizes all our actions on a daily basis and presumes we’re guilty until proven innocent, when questioned by the people about the obvious flaws and issues of the elections refused any examination and told us that everything was fine, or if not, we had no standing. We should just trust their word over our lying eyes. Next thing you know, they’ll tell us to eat cake.
  • And for the record, no, I will not condemn the protesters. Should they have gone into the Capitol? I don’t know. Why shouldn’t they have? It’s not like they went and hanged the corruptocrats using their own intestines as ropes. They might — or might not. Really, do you trust the reporting? In this time, in this place? — have broken windows. And then walked, carefully between the ropes? Sure, why not. Let’s roll with that narrative.  They might have made a mess of Nancy Ice Cream Pelosi’s office. Maybe. Again…. reporting? You know what they didn’t do? They didn’t kill anyone. That was reserved for someone who shot through a door sidelight at a protester.  You know what else they didn’t do? Use live ammo.  You know what else they didn’t do? Trample the flag, which the capitol police did, while being begged not to. You know what else they didn’t do? shine lasers in cops eyes, set fire to the building, loot it, or shoot fireworks at people. Spare me your pearl clutching. How do you propose we get our republic back if demonstrations are “rude?” When they committed blatant fraud in two elections, right before our eyes, and thereby abolished the representative part of the republic, and with it the constitutional part, what are you going to do? Write them strongly worded letters? Or wait till they fraud 2022 just as blatantly, while you stand around being utterly stunned? It’s time to ditch the Marquis de Queensberry rules.  It’s time to stop fighting with our feet in a bucket. Yes, what happened today was very very bad. Yes, it means that what comes next will probably come with a butcher’s bill.
  • You know, I do wonder why the Sons of Liberty bothered to attack the British. And why the founding fathers had an army.  I mean, couldn’t they have asked the tyrant, politely, to just remove the foot from their neck and give them representation. Oh, wait, they tried that, just like we tried the courts. Curiously, it didn’t work. It’s almost like those in power don’t care what you say, if you can’t do anything to remove their power.
Meanwhile, Glenn Reynolds and Ed Driscoll are falling all over themselves to denounce the “violence” and condemn the “marauders”.
  • ENDORSED: Trump Needs to Forcefully Condemn the Rioters, Not Coddle Them. – Ed Driscoll
  • YES. “Rep. Dan Crenshaw, who lost an eye fighting our enemies in Afghanistan, had a message for the marauders on Capitol Hill: “The people in this Capitol are not your enemy… this is not okay,” he said. “This should be condemned. I’m saddened and disappointed by what I’ve seen.” – Glenn Reynolds

Fuck you, Ed Driscoll. Fuck you too, Glenn Reynolds. You’re not on our side. You’re not on President Trump’s side. You’re not on the side of truth and justice. And you’re not on America’s side. Fuck ALL the cucks and cons and all their damned bow ties too, as they denounce imaginary violence in a city named for a man who led an army against his own government.

The same goes for every single conservative and Republican who denounces the Heroes of Capitol Hill and cries crocodile tears about the American people resisting their betrayal by their so-called representatives. Forget them, ignore them, despise them, and don’t EVER give them so much as the time of day again. Don’t ever forget their betrayal of the American people and don’t ever let them forget it. I certainly won’t.

Also, note that every would-be commenter who claims that President Trump “conceded” or gave up will be spammed. He obviously didn’t, so learn to freaking read. As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on November 11, “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”


Pence cucks… and runs

Just in: Vice President Pence says in new statement that he cannot unilaterally subvert the election and grant Trump a second term: “No Vice President in American history has ever asserted such authority.”

I think we can safely assume that while Trump’s second term is still in question, Mike Pence will not serve a second term as Vice-President.

The lesson, as always, is this: never trust a conservative. They are practitioners of the art of surrender.

The ball is now squarely in President Trump’s court. Is he a man or is he just another big-talking mouse? History, and the fate of the USA, await his decision.

UPDATE: Pence accomplished nothing but to show his true Deep State colors. The House isn’t voting on anything today.

Trump supporters STORM the Capitol in DC as Vice President Pence runs for safety after refusing to block Biden’s confirmation – amid violent clashes after President’s rally condemning his own party. An army of Donald Trump’s supporters stormed Congress Wednesday after he told them to march on the Capitol – with Mike Pence, Nancy Pelosi and lawmakers rushed to safety as thousands threatened to break through police barricades. Members of congress ran from the floor as police ordered them to evacuate to their offices for their own safety after a mob smashed through police barricades. The storming brought the certification of Joe Biden’s victory to a halt – after Pence said he would defy Trump and refuse to overturn the election single-handed. 

Do you hear the people sing? 

UPDATE: The Defense Department has just denied a request by DC officials to deploy the National Guard to the US Capitol.

Sounds like an insurrection to me. The President clearly has no choice but to invoke the Insurrection Act.

CNN headline: INSURRECTION IN WASHINGTON FOLLOWING TRUMP ENCOURAGEMENT 

The President clearly has no choice but to invoke the Insurrection Act.

UPDATE: President Trump’s silence so far suggests a major announcement is coming tonight. And I have to admit, this is already the greatest thing I have seen or heard since the Miracle on Ice in 1980.

UPDATE: Listening to Anderson Cooper’s voice shake as he tries to explain why it was right for blacks and gays to protest but wrong for the DC protestors to take over the Capital building is hysterical. You can hear the fear in the voices of the CNN commentators. They are TERRIFIED that Trump is crossing the Rubicon.

UPDATE: Just a thought. We’re told that Pence, Pelosi, and the Congress critters have been removed to a secure location. But we haven’t been told that they’ve been released….

UPDATE: At President @realDonaldTrump’s direction, the National Guard is on the way along with other federal protective services. – Kayleigh McEnany, Press Secretary


Hellmouth 2.0

When conservatives began to abandon Twitter, the gatekeepers brought you Parler. When nationalism began to rise, the gatekeepers brought you Jordan Peterson. Now that Disney and Netflix have gone off the deep end and consumers are abandoning them, Ben Shapiro is going to make movies for conservatives:

Industries become more politically-driven each year. Our most influential industries — media, Hollywood, education, sports, and social media — have headed only in a leftward direction, causing the demand for alternatives to grow stronger.

The most untouched thus far has been Hollywood, which went as far Left in 2020 as Big Tech and news. Big Tech has Parler and Rumble. The media has Fox News, The Blaze, The Daily Caller, and Joe Rogan. Entertainment has thus far had no alternatives, but it soon will.

The Daily Wire is getting into the entertainment business in 2021, as company co-founder Ben Shapiro explained Friday. Shapiro and the Daily Wire are going to bring out edgy movies that he says won’t mock values. The company will produce TV shows, both comedies and dramas, that “don’t take advantage of your viewership to promote Leftist causes.” In other words, the exact opposite of the “Coming Soon” section on Netflix.

One way or another, the Prometheans are going to try to keep you on their hellish reservation. Isn’t it interesting that someone is going to pump tens of millions of dollars into Shapiro’s efforts despite the fact that he has absolutely no entertainment industry experience, credentials, or talent? And isn’t it telling that all of the existing alternatives are completely ignored?

Here is my prediction: Arkhaven is going to see multiple acquisition offers in 2021, in addition to various offers to invest in it, after the new site launches in the spring. This is exactly what happened to Castalia very early on. Of course, we made it clear that we had less than zero interest in being acquired. And what we’re introducing with Arkhaven will dwarf everything that we’ve previously done to date.

As for Rebel’s Run, the script is complete and approved, and casting is in progress. A second script for a comedy is already complete.

UPDATE: the Hellmouth 2.0 project could well be inadvertently comical. It’s not their first attempt, as the guy who made this trainwreck is at the center of the efforts.

As a true lover of film I must advise you to avoid this appalling effort. God knows how funding was approved. Seriously this is one cinematic experience which delivers zero dramatic tension and plods along until nothing happens again and again and again. The only connectivity is two scares which at least keep you awake. Possibly the worst film I have ever witnessed and the acting by the female lead is bordering on criminal intent. One blessing with modern technology you can fast forward and watch it on 12x and it will only last 25 minutes. And you won’t miss any of the plot. No idea how people find this at all interesting and some are giving it high marks!

Oh, I’m pretty sure we know how the funding was obtained… and why some were giving it high marks.


A charade of success

AC highlights the fake success of the ticket-taking gatekeeper, Ben Shapiro:

At 17, Shapiro was the youngest syndicated columnist in the country, and was writing his first book. Nobody was going to listen to you at 17, let alone pay you to write stuff about politics. Any editor would have ignored you if you sought this out, even if you were a genius. His Infogalactic page shows nine books he has written, but not a one of you, autistic political fans, can even name one. Nobody bought them, but I will bet he took home millions, supposedly from the paltry slice a publisher offers an author. He founded the Daily Wire, which has 102 employees, and has $20 million revenue per year. I can’t even pay Lembro and Farce in popcorn. 

Understand, this is all illusion. Everything he has was laid on him from above, Epstein-style. I can recommend a product here in my main text, and my honest slice of the profit from the few, if any units sold from that, shunted to me for the endorsement, would not pay my hosting, even if multiplied up by the fake traffic numbers they give him with bots hitting his site. Almost everything you buy is habit. You know what you like, and you buy what you have always bought. Very, very rarely does somebody catch your attention,  on a little picture on the sidebar of a website of all things, show you something new, and convince you to go out and buy it. Advertising is a meme, but it is the best reason they could come up with for why people writing shit for free, who you only know because they are spammed everywhere by paid shills, would end up multimillionaires. It is a nice gig, I’m sure, so long as you don’t mind abandoning your kind, maybe getting killed at some point because it suits the narrative, and probably not getting to see your dogs in the afterlife.

He’s right. It takes a manufactured name brand and over 100 paid employees to produce 4x more traffic than this site, which has zero employees and zero advertising revenue. Internet advertising is, like political book sales, simply another means of funnelling money to those who do what their evil promethean masters tell them to do.

Note that neither AC nor I are even remotely bitter about Shapiro’s fake success. To the contrary, we are both contemptuous of it. If the whole world isn’t worth the price of your soul, then selling it for a little money, a little fame, a radio show, and your name on a few forgettable books is a dreadful bargain.


The problem with Parler

Mindy Robinson joins Parler and discovers that it’s just another gatekeeper-run ghetto to control conservatives escaping SJW-run social media.

Parler is collecting people’s phone numbers and driver’s licenses and it still doesn’t guarantee who you’re talking to is real or verified. The dangers of entering all your personal information in an app that could be hacked/sold/used for Doxxing hardly seems worth it.

Turns out, there’s a LOT more wrong and suspect about Parler than just that.

While Parler touts being the only true uncensored platform for free speech….it’s actually more flippant and stricter than Twitter or Facebook ever was. FCC rules? So I can’t say or do anything on Parler that I can’t say on daytime TV? Parler is also against anyone posting “rumors” or whatever the hell that could mean considering the inherent vagueness.

So much for free speech.

That’s “obscene?” Kind of weird maybe, but that’s super tame compared to what people post on any given Twitter thread. So clearly Parler has no intentions of actually being the platform for free speech. Wait a minute, if this is obscene and “unacceptable” on Parler than why wasn’t that imposter account of me taken down for talking sexually about my breasts as if they were me? Are they just making up rules and applying them wherever now?

Yes, actually they are. It’s in their own terms of service that they can change the rules and do whatever they want when they want. But at least it’s an alternative for those already banned on Twitter, right?

No. The terms of service for Parler are some of the strangest and most predatory that I’ve ever seen. If they get sued for something you post, frivolous or not YOU are the one responsible for paying their legal fees.

Even in the communist land of Facebook, I never once heard about someone being responsible for Zuckerberg’s legal fees over something they posted. I bet those kind of lawyers ain’t cheap either. People have been murdered live on Facebook and that never even happened.

By the way, if you even try to question the creator of Parler about these terms of service…he will delete your comments and dismantle your account. So much for transparency….

Parler also wants access to your contact lists from your email. If you do allow them access (presumably to find your friends) they then declare the right to store their contact info and use it for themselves.

Another interesting fact about Parler, is while it’s geared specifically toward conservatives…posts made on Parler do not show up on search engines like Twitter or Facebook does. This has the side effect of silencing conservatives and burying their content on the World Wide Web, which considering the sudden push for Parler right before the November election I find even more suspect.

This really isn’t that hard. Every time – EVERY SINGLE TIME – you see a nominally conservative person or institution or company suddenly become very popular and start being mentioned by the media in any context that doesn’t include the terms “Hitler”, “racist”, and “white supremacy”, it is a trap that has been custom-designed for you. FFS, stop falling for it every single damn time!

“Well, gee, I just really like this professor who occasionally says one or two things that everyone to the right of Jeb Bush already thinks. And that glowing profile in the New York Times makes it sound like he’s really making a difference. I need to get on board that train!”

Seriously, it’s not that hard. Learn to be discerning and stop running after every white van offering you candy.

As for Rumble, that’s right out. From SG:

Now Rumble wants a phone number if you wish to make a comment on a video. These guys just don’t get it.

They get it just fine. You simply don’t understand what they are.

UPDATE: CodeMonkeyZ exposes the Parler charade:

Since parler requires both front/back scans of drivers license or a passport scan to get verified, how was I impersonated as a “verified user”?  Ive never had a parler account. Ive never sent ID to parler.

Why am I verified on parler?

Parler is compromised.


Another gatekeeper

If UATV were growing this fast, even I would be suspicious of me.

I’ve been doing some more information gathering about #rumble as a platform because I couldn’t understand how Rumble went from being a small site in terms of getting 1 million site visits three months ago to getting over 60 million site visits in November, and I discovered that a lot of the same Conservative Inc/GOP establishment people who are on #parler are also on Rumble, and some of them have 500,000-800,000 subs on Rumble.

I can now definitively say that Rumble is the video-sharing site version of Parler. Rumble demands that you hand over your phone number just to be able to upload videos to their site, just like how Parler makes you hand over your phone number just to be able to use their site. Rumble’s biggest channels are members of the Conservative Inc/GOP Establishment and the subscriber accounts on their channels number in the hundreds of thousands, just like on Parler.

Time will tell if Rumble will start censoring Christians, conservatives, and trump supporters who are not part of the Conservative Inc/GOP Establishment/popular content creator crowd like Parler currently does, but so far it seems to me that Rumble is following the same path as Parler, which means that Rumble is probably a controlled opposition site like Parler is.

FFS, if you want free uploads, go to BitChute. This isn’t that hard. Stop being shepherded by the GOPe; they aren’t on your side.


There is nothing wrong with neutrality

First, read this statement from Black Rifle Coffee:

A Statement from CEO Evan Hafer on Black Rifle Coffee Company’s Mission

As a veteran-owned and operated coffee company, Black Rifle Coffee Company exists to serve premium coffee while supporting the veteran Community. At the core of Black Rifle Coffee’s values is to support and bring awareness to the millions of veterans who have proudly served our nation and we will not waver from that mission.

The Black Rifle brand is a symbol of service, of strength, and of goodness that has carried over from our military origins. It’s why we support active duty service members and veterans, prioritize veteran hiring, and advocate for individual liberty and personal responsibility.

We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.

We believe in the integrity of the legal justice system, and support law enforcement officials.

We’re grateful for the continued support of the Black Rifle Coffee community and eager to continue serving those who serve.

-Evan Hafer, CEO/Founder

Now, as you probably know, I absolutely support The Hero Kyle Rittenhouse. And I also consider this to be a missed opportunity here for Black Rifle Coffee to take a stand in support of one of its supporters that would go over very, very well with its customers. If he’d been wearing an Arkhaven shirt, I’d have sent him ten more plus a baseball cap. But there is literally nothing wrong for a corporation to decline to not only leap into the cultural wars, but put itself at the pointiest edge of the spear in those wars.

Black Rifle didn’t cuck, it didn’t throw The Hero Kyle Rittenhouse under the bus, it didn’t disavow him, and it didn’t rush to make a donation to BLM in order to purchase a hall pass from the enemy. It just pointed out, correctly, that it was being unfairly attacked for something it didn’t do that was unrelated to its mission. Save your rhetorical fire for enemies, deserters, cucks, and traitors, don’t waste it on neutrals. Ignore them, because there are no shortage of better targets out there.

TL,DR: If you like the coffee, then drink it. There is no reason to boycott them. But then, there is no reason to go out of your way to support them either. They’ve made it clear that they won’t stand up for anyone, so you don’t need to stand up for them.

As for me, I don’t drink Black Rifle Coffee and I don’t care about Black Rifle Coffee. Here is an idea: instead of getting all enthusiastic about individuals and institutions that you imagine might maybe perhaps be on your side and getting repeatedly disappointed when you learn otherwise, why not simply focus on supporting those who actually are?

I truly do not understand this apparent desire to constantly hare off after everyone and everything that happens to make what might possibly be a sympathetic noise.


UPDATE: All right, if enough of you BRC supporters are genuinely pissed off about this, let me know and I’ll contact an Italian company I know. I wouldn’t mind having an excuse to produce a custom Italian coffee line, especially since Nespresso doesn’t seem inclined to bring back Canella anytime soon.

UPDATE: Upon further review, I was wrong. Black Rifle Coffee is a false front, it is not politically neutral and its failure to back The Hero Kyle Rittenhouse cannot be reasonably ascribed to simple corporate neutrality. They appear to be parasites in patriot clothing successfully preying on the veteran community. The CEO is an Obama donor. An ActBlue donor. And it gets worse, as demonstrated in this glowing profile by CBS News:

To Hafer and Best, honoring patriots means honoring immigrants….


So, what do we call it?

 Neon Revolt, whose opinion regarding Black Rifle Coffee is pretty similar to mine, considers this comment from one of his readers to be a fair take. And I don’t disagree:

People are mad at black rifle coffee because they want right-leaning companies to go all in for the right just like the left leaning companies go all in for the left.

If you’re on the right it never feels like you get a hearty endorsement from any such company… At best you get neutrality and at worst you get disavowed.

Or to put in another way: everybody fears the left-wing mob but nobody fears the right-wing. Right-wingers are starving for someone to have their back. That is why the reaction is so strong.

Fair enough. And even if you don’t consider BRC’s actions a betrayal, they have at least demonstrated that they don’t merit any particular support from patriots or 2nd Amendment activists despite their posturing and pretensions.

Trust not in marketing.

Anyhow, I’ve already made contact with an Italian private label coffee producer and arranged for them to provide me with a box of samples. (There is no downside here.) If it’s genuinely good, we can consider what the next steps might be. Of course, we’ll have to figure out what we’re going to call it….
