A Reply to “Breaking the Siege”

The Daily Californian opened its editorial page to the black-masked revolutionary cosplayers of Antifa to “set the record straight” on why they have a love affair with the idea of tormenting and killing their class enemies.

We would like to preface this statement by saying we do not represent every group involved in anti-fascist demonstrations here in Berkeley, or in the Bay Area. While many of our comrades may share our beliefs and opinions, we are not a unified group and we do not intend to speak for anyone but ourselves.

With that out of the way: Hello, UC Berkeley! We are those anti-fascists you’ve heard so much about recently. Let us introduce ourselves. Some of us are your fellow UC Berkeley students, while others are Berkeley City College students, UC Berkeley alumni or members of the Berkeley community.

Hello, Commies of Berkeley!

For security reasons, we don’t usually talk to the press. But the media coverage of our actions against the current wave of far-right mobilization in Berkeley has inspired us to express to the public why it is that we do what we do.

You may have never heard of Antifa until we marched onto Sproul Plaza on the night of Feb. 1. Our struggle is global and ongoing, with a history that stretches as far back as there have been fascists to resist.

Unfortunately, I had heard of you, but you were thankfully a largely European phenomenon, a pack of Communism-fetishists convinced that everyone not enthusiastically in your camp is a “fascist” in need of a good “bashing.”

The current visibility of militant anti-fascism is due to the Trump-era resurgence of open, violent white nationalism. They’re more than just 4chan trolls spouting racist rhetoric online. Last June, when the Traditionalist Workers Party and the Golden State Skinheads attempted to rally in Sacramento, they stabbed nine people in the ensuing confrontation with Antifa. Identity Evropa leader Nathan Damigo sucker-punched a woman on camera at the rally April 15.

According to the police, Antifas got stabbed after they initiated violence against the Traditionalist Workers Party, throwing water bottles at them and beating them with sticks. Imagine that: People, fascist, people accused of fascism, non-fascists, etc. don’t like being assaulted and will defend themselves from armed attackers with whatever they can lay their hands to, including knives.

Nathan Damigo punched Moldylocks aka AFTER she threatened to claim “100 Nazi scalps” (I’m no expert, but I’m certain that scalping people is a violent and criminal act) and AFTER she threw glass wine bottles at Trump supporters and threatened to strike him with one.

Never trust a Communist to tell the truth; always trust a Communist to misrepresent the truth.

Our opponents push the misconception that, by militantly confronting them, we are stifling their free speech. We may be a bunch of leftists and anarchists, but we’ve still read the Constitution.

Read it and probably understood none of it.

The First Amendment protects you from government censorship. It does not allow you to impose on the 14th Amendment rights of others, prevent other people from using their freedoms of speech and assembly to hold you accountable for the things you say, or guarantee you a right to a paid speaking gig on a college campus.

There is no interpretation of “Freedom of speech” or “freedom of assembly” include assaulting people with sticks, bottles, bike locks, and bear mace.

And who precisely the fuck are you Middle-Class revolutionaries that anyone must “account” themselves to you?

Ultimately, the bloc’s actions against Milo Yiannopoulos were not in response to the things he says, but the things he does. Yiannopoulos has a history of targeted harassment of transgender, Muslim and undocumented students at his campus speeches. On the night of Feb. 1, he planned to use his platform to teach the crowd how to report undocumented students to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. It was also rumored he planned to out undocumented students.

Notice the Doublethink in this paragraph: They opposed what Milo Yiannopoulos does, not what he said, but the only thing he did was speak.

It could be argued that Milo planned to hold illegal immigrant students “accountable” to American law.

This is not protected speech. You can’t yell “fire” in a crowded theater and you can’t out undocumented students on a sanctuary campus.

Hate to burst your Antifa bubble, but this analogy was stupid when Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. wrote it in 1919, and it is just as stupid nearly 100 years later when excreted from the pen of a black-clad pansy uses it out of context.

First, the quote itself in full:

“The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theatre AND causing a panic.”

Falsehood + Speech + Panic/Danger.

But the case itself (Schenk v. U.S., now thankfully overturned) had nothing to do with fires or panics; it was about a Socialist who distributed flyers (IN YIDDISH) encouraging men not to enlist in World War I.

But censors and moral busybodies for a century have been stroking themselves silly to that ill-thought bit of dictum.

Despite all of this, the UC Berkeley administration chose to put their students in danger. We decided this was unacceptable. You may disagree with our actions, but if it protected even one student from being targeted, then we are not ashamed.

This is the Communist/Antifa mentality in a nutshell: We don’t care if you disagree; we are not amenable to discourse on the legality, rationality, or utility of our actions; we are morally pure, therefore whatever we do is beyond reproach.

In dealing with Antifa, America is not dealing with a political movement, it is dealing with a cult.

Bay Area Antifa did not have any militant action planned for Ann Coulter’s event. While her views are disgusting and deserve to be protested, nobody wants to get attacked with a nightstick or go to jail over Ann Coulter. If any action had been taken, it would have been because of the extremists in attendance and looking for a fight at her speech.

Nobody wants to get beaten with a stick, hit with a glass bottle, sprayed with bear mace, or hit with a bike lock over Communism, yet here we are, all because Communists are self-righteous twats who imagine they have a right to assault people for disagreeing with them.

But these speakers know now to expect resistance. We didn’t have to shut Coulter down — she canceled once her financial backers and the administration recognized that her presence was unsafe and unprofitable.

Amazing how Communists have the marked inability to call anything by its proper name. They have half a dozen euphemisms for “violence” (direct action, resistance, militancy, protest, accountable) but the threat is always present and understood with them. Communists threaten the safety of speakers and people who want to hear the speaker and then call the person they oppose the problem.

Or, as a wife-beater would put it: If you would just behave, I wouldn’t have to beat you. Yes, Communists are the social equivalent of a domestic abuser.

You may have wondered where the masses of people in masks were April 27. We shut them down March 4 and April 15 because they wanted to prove they could rally in Berkeley. On April 27, they came from far and wide to fight Antifa. Instead of giving them what they wanted, we let them stand around in the park in their Spartan helmets, pretending to enjoy their open mic and getting sunburned.

Our ideology is not tethered to masculinity and strength — we don’t ever have to fight on their terms. We are also aware (because again, we live here) that on a Thursday afternoon, high schoolers and middle schoolers were in class in the area where the fascists wanted to hold their street fight.

Another Commie offering alternative history and flushing inconvenient facts down the memory hole.

The good Communists of r/Anarchism are at least honest enough to admit that they got BTFO on April 15th.

As for the 27th, and this is merely speculation, after the shellacking Antifa et al. took on the 15th, the Black Bloc decided not to combat Trump supporters for control of the streets again, at least not until they have a strategic or numerical advantage.

You’re probably sick of feeling like Berkeley is a warzone. We are, too. We’re tired of seeing Identity Evropa propaganda on campus and up and down the streets we grew up on. We’re tired of hearing about kids at Albany High using Nazi salutes in the hallways.

And we’re tired of fighting a second front against public apathy and misinformation.

As the great Ludacris once rhymed:

“If you tired, be quiet and go to sleep, ho.”

Your fatigue and low energy is not an argument in support of your position.

We are anti-fascists. We are not paramilitary, outside agitators, or punks looking for a fight. We are members of this community who are invested in its safety.

We understand that not everyone can join us in this fight. All we ask is that you understand why we take to the streets.

At least the writer got one thing right: Antifa isn’t looking for fights; they are looking for lynchings. They are looking to isolate and overwhelm their enemies with surprise, anonymity, and superior numbers. Stripped of their advantages, they slink away and write letters to Dailycal pleading that they are “the good guys” and begging people not infected with this social/political cancer called Communism to rally behind them.

Fortunately, people are paying attention Antifa’s actions and not their crocodile tears and realize that these people are engaging in violence for the sake of violence and that their definition of “Fascist” means “anyone who does not swear allegiance to Antifa.”

Barbarians inside the Gates: A Statement from the Byzantines

We are a collection of friends and co-conspirators belonging to our local communities. We are not associated with all the organizations that have shared our handiwork and celebrated it, despite the accusations of those on social media. This action is claimed by us as rogue actors, and came from no organizational authority. We believe in the spontaneity of action, in the possibility for direct acts led by small affinity groups to achieve broad effects and inspire other insurgent acts. We publish this, not to claim fame or reap benefits from the recent vandalism of notorious fraternities in West Campus. We are publishing this statement to clear up some misconceptions, to clarify why these taggings happened, and to inspire others.

I strongly doubt that they are not associated with any organization, but do agree that they are operating as an independent cell to give the “organization” plausible deniability if and when any of these idiots get caught spray-painting people’s property.

To the confusion of the local news, we did not launch these attacks in response to any particular scandal or recent accusation. We were responding to the everyday crisis that is rape culture, white supremacy, and elitism. Fiji may be notorious for its rape room, racist parties, and horrific pledge rules, but it is not that unique. It is no accident that so many fraternities take the style of plantation homes—the institutions of Greek life are themselves colonial, bourgeois, patriarchal structures, founded to preserve the reproduction of elite classes. Our attacks come in response to the everyday fear and feeling of danger that these institutions and their members produce for students of color, women, queer and trans students, and other marginalized folks. Catcalls, racial slurs, rape jokes, and more are the daily realities which go unspoken and uninvestigated by either the police or the University.

They did not launch attacks in response to any particular scandal or recent accusation.

In other words, they have no specific incident of wrongdoing by any specific person that they are aggrieved with.

They commit their crimes from a general sense of outrage at “institutions” and “structures” and “feeling(s) of danger.”

Some consider our acts irresponsible, pointless, and ineffective. We think the massive surge in conversations happening around sexual assault, white supremacy, and the failures of the administration are proof of the success of our actions. The administration has showed its true face, as it has rapidly responded to our actions with calls for increased security, crisis support for the frats, and investigation according to the hate crime policy. This stands in stark contrast to the University’s inability to respond to racist acts by the frats, investigate sexual assault, fund mental health services for students, and respond to Celtic Cross graffiti on the Blanton. We have seen from the prosecution of the UT Antifa 3 that this administration’s feign towards multiculturalism is a ruse—an attempt to maintain the peace and ensure that students of color and women continue to provide their money, bodies, and very presence to maintain the status of the University and its image.

There’s a very easy solution to providing your “money, bodies, and very presence” to a University that so obviously allows “sexual assault and white supremacy”:

Don’t enroll there.

But I forget myself and who I am referring to. Social justice can not leave unbelievers to their unbelief. They must convert the heathens BAMN (By Any Means Necessary).

Most importantly, we hope our acts can serve as a template for student self-organization. When the administration and police fail to hold accountable powerful institutions with deep financial connections and when their crimes go unnamed, we will hold them accountable. We will name our enemies, and do so loudly for the world to see. We will break the silence and the taboo around these institutions. We will make clear to survivors that we support them and will fight for them by any means necessary. Students must provide for each other what these institutions can never provide us.

“Student self-organization” or “lone wolf attacks” by self-appointed vigilantes.

Depending on who you ask.

This moment is exceptional. These are institutions and people who have never felt unsafe because of their status and identities. And now, through a couple of simple actions, they feel threatened. FIJI was forced to have night long watches. Private security, UTPD, and APD patrolled the area. Even SUREWALK, the campus organization that supposedly protects students from assault, was seen patrolling the area to protect rapist frat Fiji.

All of which will eventually be reflected in the tuition and fees paid for by the students.

Good job guys.

Let us be bolder in naming our enemies. Let us tell students at orientation the truth about the crimes of these institutions. Let us catalog the violence of the frats and the administration, so that there is never a period where students forget who their enemies are. Let us make it impossible for the administration and frats to simply wait out the occasional uproar, and let us constantly agitate against them and make their lives hell. Let us make racists, frat bros, and the administration afraid again—afraid of students, afraid of the marginalized and harassed, afraid of the exploited and excluded.

Fear is bad when someone does it to “students of color, women, queer and trans students,” but it is acceptable when it is done to “racists, frat bros, and the administration.”

Actions are only good or bad based only on who they are done to, not on the morality of the act itself.

Four legs good; two legs bad.

It is no accident that we attacked Greek life. The Greco-Roman legacy has inspired so much of the march of European civilization against the “uncivilized.” Colonial and plantation nations were constructed in the image of Greece and Rome. Fascist group Identity Evropa uses images of Greco-Roman statues in its propaganda. Continental philosophy finds much of its roots in the Socratic tradition. Our notion of democracy and all its accompanying inequalities and hierarchies stems from the Greek conception of the polis, sustained by slavery, the domination of women & children in the home, and the battle against foreigners.

Because only the Greeks and the Romans have a history of conquest and empire. No empires in Africa, the Middle East, Northern Europe, Central Asia, South East Asia, North America, or South America.

Europeans, especially those of Mediterranean descent, colonialism and empire are your Original Sin, your Mark of Cain, as a result of your Greco-Roman legacy.

These people are a cult in the most negative sense of the word.

In the midst of resurgent fascism and ongoing colonial legacies, we must become the unruly, improper, unrespectable “barbarians at the gates.” Our attempts to appeal to the institutions to include us, to show that we can be like them, have and always will fail. It is time to jettison all such illusions and instead construct new communities and ways of living that amplify our power here, as students and collectives, until we can overrun these institutions themselves.

And like barbarians at the gate, the only method to deal with them to crush them completely and mercilessly, because they, by their own words, seek no peace, but to utterly destroy anything distinct from themselves, to “overrun” your institutions.

Everything for “anti-fascism.” Nothing against “anti-fascism.” Nothing outside of “anti-fascism.”

Sounds vaguely familiar…

We are labelled “vandals”—placing us in a lineage that extends to the “barbarian” Vandal tribes that sacked Rome. We will accept this charge, for we seek the destruction, looting, and emptying out of these halls of power by the force of the unruly masses—the excluded and exploited. And we hope that individuals such as Gregory Fenves can only watch and play the fiddle while Rome burns.

The Vandals looted Rome; they didn’t destroy Rome or empty out its halls. The Vandals were neither “excluded” nor “exploited”. They were Scandanavian raiders and pirates whose primary interests were territory and plunder.

Sort of like how Communists, specifically the party elites, for all of their bleating about “the masses” always make sure to secure all of that evil capital for themselves.

So the comparison of Communists to Vandals is pretty appropriate.

Our message can perhaps best be summarized as: Every Student Can Tag. Anyone can be The Vandals of West Campus. Buy some spray paint, with cash of course, can’t have a debit card trail. Turn off location services on your phone. Don’t take photos of your handiwork—wait for someone else to do so (quick shout out to the frat bros who got the best photos of the tags out of anyone—thank you so much for that propaganda work!) Have a change of clothes. Mask up and wear unidentifiable clothes so you can’t be tracked through video surveillance. Make sure you have a secluded spot to change in and out of costume. Aim for the darkest, quietest targets. Stay in small groups so you can defend each other in case confronted. Scout out the house before hand and be aware of any police or frat patrols.

Every Student Can Tag. Just like Every Student Can Rob. Just like Every Student Can Assault.

But the Communists have not provided any good reason, aside from being offended by the world, as to WHY Every Student Should Tag.

We hope you will not make us your vanguards or heroes. We neither want the fame or status, nor do we want to continue the dangerous work ourselves in the midst of increased police investigations. We hope our names never come out into the public sphere, and that all you see will see will be our actions. We hope that you will become one of us. Take up our name and sign off on your actions, put out report backs. We hope that through generalized student action and preparation, the efforts of the pigs and the administration to catch “culprits” will be thwarted, as the entire student body itself becomes a threat.

The more often they do it, the more likely they are to be caught and they know it. So everybody else get in on the action so that the “Vandals of West Campus” are less likely to be caught and prosecuted as they deserve.

To the fraternities and University: Prepare yourselves. We are at your gates. Your walls will fall. And you will be sacked.

—The Vandals of UT Austin

The Vandals lasted only 79 years after the Sack of Rome; they were subsequently destroyed completely by the Byzantines.

The lesson? Civilization wins out over Barbarism in the long-run. Builders eventually triumph over Destroyers. The Rule of Law prevails over the Rule of Envy.

The Communists like to imagine that they are barbarians howling at the gates and those within are all powdered, pampered women and dilettantes.

Civilization keeps its own barbarians, its own savage men for occasions when other savages show up.

Feminists Want Money and Outcomes. A Response.

Someone declared March to be Women’s History Month while I wasn’t looking. Fine. I ignored Black History Month easily enough. But on the first day of this dubious period of reflection, Alia Dastagir wrote a list of Feminist demands entitled, “What do men get that women don’t? Here are a few things”

Eagerly, I read the piece, expecting to see some natural right unrecognized in women, which would be a terrible injustice. Or some state-sponsored restraint that women suffered but not men.

Nope.

It’s just a list of demands that can be boiled down two categories: MONEY and OUTCOMES. Women already have all of the rights that men enjoy. They don’t suffer from the same legal or social restraints that men labor under.

But still, they want more things.

Roger Sterling gave us the proper response to the question of women wanting things:

But, let’s take a peek at this fresh list of terrorist demands.

Health: From gains to wait-and-see

Acknowledging women’s roles as primary caregivers, the 1977 conference named national health care as one of its federal priorities. In 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, expanding coverage to millions of women, forbidding the denial of coverage based on gender and guaranteeing access to birth control, maternity care and breastfeeding supplies. The National Partnership for Women & Families called the ACA “the greatest advance for women’s health in a generation.” Trump and Republicans in Congress vow to repeal and replace it.

MONEY.

Yes, let’s ignore that 143-155% rise in cost of plans and the evacuation of major insurance providers like Aetna and UnitedHealthcare. Obamacare is failing because it ignored the most basic rule of insurance: Get as many people paying in as possible who are the least likely to require payouts.

Feminists don’t mind the health insurance death spiral because Obama gave them a handful of trinkets and gimmes, which further proves that feminists think in terms of short-term personal benefits and not long-term societal costs.

Sexual and domestic violence: Still too common

There is more awareness and condemnation of violence against women than ever before, yet statistics still paint a grim picture. One in 3 women have been a victim of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and one in six American women will be the victim of an attempted or completed rape, according to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. The Department of Justice reports that rates are even higher for transgender people and bisexual women.

OUTCOMES.

For the sake of argument let’s pretend that the statistics presented are truthful (expecting feminists to tell the truth requires some suspension of disbelief). If one in 3 women have been a victim of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner, then that is a personal problem, not a societal problem. Unless the “intimate partner” (I like the way the author shoehorned lesbian relationships in with heterosexual relationships) clubbed a woman over the head and dragged back back to their cave, then the woman, by her own agency, picked the man who later beat her ass. The fact that 1 in 3 women have a propensity for men who whip women’s asses is an indictment on the self-destructive and irrational mentality of women, and not on any failure of the government or society.

In short, don’t want to get your ass kicked? PICK A BETTER DICK.

Paid family leave and childcare: Behind other countries

The United States is an outlier among developed countries when it comes to paid family and medical leave, which allows people time off to care for a newborn, help a sick family member or recover from a serious illness. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave, but according to the National Partnership for Women & Families fewer than 40% of workers qualify for it. Some employers offer paid family leave, but the group says it covers only 14% workers. California, New Jersey and Rhode Island have implemented paid family leave laws and New York and the District of Columbia are in the process of enacting them.

MONEY.

Let’s boil this (paid family leave is) down to what it actually is: The employer is expected to continue paying you for not working. Feminists want something for nothing in exchange. And it does a disservice to women in general because it attaches an additional built-in cost (additional six months of salary to someone not working) to hiring/employing any potentially fertile woman that does not exist with a man.

Abortion was legal then and now. But …

Following the 2010 elections, more anti-abortion politicians seized power in state legislatures, leading to a proliferation of abortion restrictions across the country. State laws like Arkansas’ 48-hour waiting period create significant hurdles for rural and poor women, advocates say. There are only three licensed abortion providers in Arkansas, according to the state’s department of health. A limited number of clinics means a woman may have to travel long distances to access the procedure, and a waiting period means she incurs two days of transportation and lodging costs compounded by two days of missed wages, as well as two days of possible childcare (according to the Guttmacher Institute, nearly 60% of women obtaining an abortion are already mothers). Planned Parenthood says an in-clinic abortion can cost up to $1,500 in the first trimester.

MONEY.

“Seized power”? That’s a funny way of saying “won an election fairly.”

If abortion is that much in demand, why aren’t feminists building an abortion clinic on every block? Surely someone wants to get in on this emerging uterine scraping market? Abortion doctor too far away? No problem! “Get to your abortion facility of choice with our convenient Roe App! We’ll pick you up, take you to your appointment, and bring you back for a flat fee!”

Of course, that’s not what’s going to happen, because that would require the feminists to reach in their own pockets to produce a solution to a problem. No, their solution is to reach into the pockets of those who don’t agree with them (in the form of taxation) to pay for something that those people are personally and morally opposed to.

‘Equal pay for equal work’

The wage gap is narrowing, but has barely budged in the last decade, according to the non-profit Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR). Overall, women earn 80 cents for every dollar earned by men, according to the National Partnership for Women & Families, with black women earning 63 cents and Latinas earning 54 cents. Critics argue these figures do not reflect factors such as occupation or experience. One can’t, they say, compare the salary of a female teacher to that of a male lawyer. But economists say even when those controls are present, a wage gap persists. Female doctors, for example, are paid about $20,000 less a year than male doctors.

MONEY & OUTCOMES.

The Gender Wage/Pay Gap mythology has been generously and repeatedly dismantled here, here, here, and here. I will give it no more treatment here than this: Differences in pay, between men and women, is primarily due to the fact that men, in general, work more hours and take less time off of a job, than women. “Work-life balance” is not an argument that men are making often.

“Personal choices” is not an argument sufficient to satisfy feminists because, after all, “the personal is the political.” Like the domestic violence issue previously discussed, they must have political solutions to what are essentially personal problems. If employers will not give a female part-timer the same salary that a male full-timer makes, they will agitate for the law to force the employer to do so.

Political representation: At this rate, women will reach parity in 100 years

The number of women in politics is increasing — sluggishly. Women are 51% of the population, but make up 19% of Congress and only a quarter of state legislatures. Women are on course to reach parity with men by 2117, according to IWPR. Research shows women have different legislative priorities than men, and are more likely to introduce bills addressing the needs of women and children. Jennifer Lawless, author of Women on the Run: Gender, Media, and Political Campaigns in a Polarized Era, said the chief reason for unequal political participation is that women, perceiving bias, are less likely to run than men. When they do, she said, they are elected at the same rates.

OUTCOMES.

Question: Why should men elect politicians who, in the authors own words, are less likely to advance their own interests than others? Why should a man vote for a woman who will “introduce bill addressing the needs of women and children” or whose “legislative priorities” exclude approximately half of the constituency? Chivalry is dead. Men are under no obligation to give up a seat on the lifeboat or subordinate their own policy goals to “women and children.”

If women perceive bias, therefore they don’t run, congratulations, your cowardice probably made you unsuited to run. Republicans running in majority-Democrat constituencies face “bias.” Democrats running in majority-Republican constituencies face “bias.” Whites running in majority-Black constituencies face “bias.” Blacks running in majority-White constituencies face “bias.” But in politics, having the fight is as important as getting the win. And today’s defeat might lay the groundwork for tomorrow’s victory (See: Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan).

Go soft-pedal this nonsense that women need their hands held through the bloodsport of electoral politics. You want to play? Bring your mouthguard and your cup.

Women are not a monolith

The 1977 women’s conference formed with bipartisan support, but in the decades since, women’s issues have grown increasingly politicized. Marjorie Spruill, author of Divided We Stand: The Battle Over Women’s Rights and Family Values That Polarized American Politics, said a major factor was the rise of a potent conservative women’s movement, led by activist Phyllis Schlafly, which denounced the feminist agenda and successfully mobilized to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment. The conference “made people really line up on extreme sides,” Spruill said. While feminists debated at the Houston Civic Center, conservatives held a dueling Pro-Life, Pro-Family Rally at the city’s Astro Arena.

OUTCOMES.

Some women were disinclined to accept the poisoned fruit from Feminism, recognizing it for the empty promises and utopian delusions it held. These “conservative” women, to put it bluntly, recognized “Eve’s Great Con Game” and that there is more to be gained from obtaining time and leisure, and raising her children, using the resources of a grateful and compliant (some even shoot for loving) man, than using her own time to get resources on her own.

No, women are not a monolith, but Feminists are, or wish they could be one by gathering #YesAllWomen into one monolithic, proletariat“oppressed” class to fight The CapitalistsPatriarchy.

Stephen Marche Tries to Shame Men into Being Feminists and Fails Miserably…AGAIN

I gave Stephen Marche some treatment last year after he took a swipe at the Manosphere in general and TRP in particular. Much as I dislike having to defend TRP, I will do it when confronted with Feminist acolytes clucking their tongues and wagging their fingers at men.

But Marche is back and like most of the Progressives, he is struggling through early-onset Trump Derangement Syndrome. Combined with his pre-existing Feminist sickness results in a very aggressive and likely untreatable form of TDS. He wants to shame men into his particular brand of politics.

Let me knock down a beer and get to business.

The situation has, in one sense, simplified enormously. The elaborate labyrinths of identity politics have crumbled and left behind basic questions of fundamental human decency. Trump’s actions as president, more than his demeaning behavior on the campaign trail, are deliberately keeping women from power and attacking programs that promote their health, both in the US and globally. Feminism as humanism – the very basic idea that women are people – is now under threat. Any man who claims to possess a shared sense of humanity with women must stand with them.

Demeaning behavior on the campaign trail, including calling one-quarter of the electorate “deplorable”? Demeaning behavior like firing up a rumor that the front-runner in your party’s primary isn’t a natural-born American citizen in order to undermine his entire campaign? Or circulating a photo of Obama in a turban to emphasize the point? Demeaning behavior on the campaign trail like using party apparatus to limit debate and sandbag Bernie Sanders’ efforts? Spare me the disingenous gasping and clutching of pearls. Hillary Clinton is one of the dirtiest, most hardball campaigners in American history.

The Mexico City Policy is much simpler: He who pays the piper calls the tune. If you want Big Daddy Government’s money, guess what? You dance to the tune he calls. Don’t like it? Get your private money donation game up so that you don’t have to live and eat off of federal grants. Simple, yes? I guess it’s not simple for Progressives. They have this peculiar idea that they are entitled to spend other’s money on things they don’t support (Americans are split on abortion), to say nothing of the propriety of taking money from Americans and sending it abroad.

The evidence has become too glaringly obvious. Who could embody more perfectly “rape culture” than a man who was elected president of the United States while boasting about sexual predation?

Let’s see: A choice between a guy who said that “And when you’re a star they LET you do it. You can do anything.”

Notice the words of permission, there.

On the other side, we have a woman who brags about destabilizing foreign nations (Libya), resulting in the deaths of thousands, and exacerbated the “refugee crisis” by adding Libya to the mix.

President Warmonger vs. President Consensual Pussy-Grabber.

Not even a close choice.

What more proof do you need that women face structural disadvantages in their work lives than Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes and still losing?

Today I learned that Andrew Jackson, Samuel Tilden, Grover Cleveland, and Al Gore were women who faced “structural disadvantages.”

Two contradictory processes are at work. One is the rise of women to dominance of the middle class; the other is the intractable continuation of male power at the top. Since 2000, women have increased their workplace participation in most countries in the world. Across the OECD, the pay gap declined significantly between 2000 and 2011. In the United States, the number of households led by women has been increasing since the 60s and currently stands at around 40%.

“Dominance”?

But I thought dominance was a bad thing? I thought “Feminism means equality”?

Oh that’s right, dominance is only bad when men do it.

Got it.

At the same time, women are kept from the top positions. There are any number of ways to register this fact, from a comparison of the salaries of male and female movie stars, to the number of women who are full professors, to the scandalously few women who are equity partners in law firms.

Women are kept from the bottom positions. There are any number of ways to register this fact, from a comparison of the sex-ratio of workplace fatalities, to the number of women in dangerous or high-risk occupations, to the scandalously few women who are loggers.

But what am I saying? “Feminism means equality” and “equality” only matters in the C-suite, not on the back of a garbage truck.

We cannot shape men until we have some kind of critical understanding of the mechanisms of masculinity. And simply put, we do not have that understanding. The first graduate program devoted to masculinity studies in the US began in 2015.

Here’s the money quote, right here. For the last 50 years, Feminists have raised a mighty howl, that no man should even dare to entertain the idea of telling a woman what she ought to do. Meanwhile, Feminists have waged a campaign by which they not only have the privilege, but the duty to alter, shape, mold and change men into something that suits their purposes: New Soviet Man…I mean, NEW FEMINIST MAN.

There have been calls for men to join in the feminist movement from its beginning, with two main difficulties: the first is that feminism is inherently about women. And so feminism’s message to men has always been pretty simple: behave better to women.

While creating no similar obligation of women to behave better to men.

The other problem is that men do not talk explicitly about their own gender.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Is this guy for real?

Men talk about their sex. We talk about it and matters pertaining to it. The problem that Feminists like Marche have is that when we talk about it, we proceed down lines of thinking towards conclusions are in no way useful to Feminism.

See Men’s Rights.

See MGTOW.

See The Red Pill.

And to Feminists, men discussing manhood in the absence of Feminist supervision is not acceptable. Can’t have the proles engaging in Wrongthink or the slaves discussing freedom.

Those facts, in themselves, reveal how far the way we talk about gender has deviated from its reality in American life. During a campaign stop for Hillary Clinton early in 2016, Madeleine Albright declared: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” – a line that has appeared on Starbucks cups. Forty-two percent of American women felt otherwise, as did 62% of non-college educated women.

A comment for which Albright was roundly and rightly blistered. Albright reserved her own seat in hell by sponsoring a war that led to thousands of deaths and the raping of hundreds of women.

Gloria Steinem famously declared that women’s liberation will be men’s liberation, too. Trump has clarified that the opposite – women’s bondage, men’s bondage – is also true. It is men who need to say “this is not us.” But then we would have to think about who we are.

“Liberation” from what?

Women don’t owe men anything. Conversely, men don’t owe women anything. Not time, not attention, not labor, not blood, and not happiness. Consequently, I don’t “need” to do anything on the behalf of any woman.

They are our equals. Let them do for themselves.

Black Matriarch Rapes 13-Year-Old Boy; Sentenced to Two Years of Probation; Commentary on White Knighting in Government

The Black Matriarchy is in full effect and its sponsor, the government, reaches out from behind the curtain to show its hand. Elaine Goodman, 46, of Smyrna, Kent County, Delaware, stood accused of having sex with a minor, specifically, a 13-year-old boy. The boy was, at the time of the offense, her daughter’s boyfriend.

The victim left his home on March 15, 2015 to meet Goodman for sex from 1 AM to 4:30 AM in the backseat of her car.

Classy.

The case was built from multiple pieces of evidence, including DNA evidence recovered from Goodman’s car, and text messages recovered from herself in which she commented to the message recipients that the victim “is so cute” and has “a nice ass body.”

Goodman pled guilty to rape in the fourth-degree, a class C felony carrying a maximum sentence of 15 years.

strap your boots on tight, because this is where we go ankle-deep in bullshit.

Goodman went into the court and said that she was “truly, truly hurt” by what she had done.

Her attorney, James Liguor said that Goodman was “hurt to the core by how much she hurt so many people.”

And she got to walk out of the court on the day of her sentencing hearing.

How is that, you ask? I would love to explain it.

It’s a combination of factors: Black Matriarchy and White Knighting.

Meet the White Knight in a Black Robe: Judge Robert B. Young.

Judge Young meekly accepted this sweetheart plea deal in which Goodman was sentenced to TWO YEARS PROBATION, for statutory rape, letting Goodman go free to lust after and attempt to be more discreet in her unlawful, underage liaisons.

Judges, politicians, lawyers, will do everything in their collective power to keep Black Matriarchs on the streets, free to breed and fight and suck off the government teat and cause as much mayhem they are singly and collectively able. The Black Matriarchy fuels the Prison-Welfare state by supplying it with fresh bodies and dysfunctional minds to be socially promoted through a publicly-funded system that can only be associated with “education” as an undeserved courtesy. Once the “education” system is done indoctrinating those minds, the penal system or the welfare system steps in to collect the fuel that keeps both running.

The Black Matriarchy is the oil well of the State. They spit out the “black gold” from between their legs, sell it off to the refinery (Public Miseducation System), which then sells it to the welfare bureaucrats or the penal bureaucrats.

The other point: White Knighting

This is not the first time in Kent County that a judge has withheld the sword of justice when faced with a pair of tits and a bucket of phony tears.

Meet Stephanie Seabury, Former English teacher at Fifer Middle School in Dover, Kent County, Delaware. In 2014, she pled guilty to having raped a 13-year-old boy, a student in her class. Unlike Goodman, she actually had sex with the boy in her apartment instead of a motor vehicle.

What a romantic.

Seabury received the harsh sentence of…18 months probation.

The judge in her case? ROBERT B. YOUNG.

A cursory examination of Judge Young’s cases indicates that he has a rather light touch when it comes to applying justice to the female sex.

Last year, Young signed an order releasing Catherine W. Culp, who was serving 30 years for the murder of her then-boyfriend, Lee Hicks, in 1998. Young cited her “extraordinary” rehabilitation that would serve as a beacon to the other inmates. The order was signed over the vocal objections of the victim’s family and the Justice Department.

White Knighting is a benevolent (to the women, at least) form of sexual discrimination; the White Knight does for, and gives to women, that which he would not do for, or give to a man in a similar situation. There are many motivations for white knighting: Paternalistic desire to “protect” women, a misguided desire to appear “heroic” to women, the “women are wonderful” effect, or the long-con to buy sex from a woman with “good deeds.”

Whatever the motivation may be, the outcome works out to the same end, especially when White Knights occupy positions of legal or political power:

Men get punishment; Women get help.

Marxist Sambo Marc Lamont Hill Denounces Black Men and Women as “A Bunch of Mediocre Negroes”

CNN in the course of its continuing its death-spiral into irrelevance, brought a blue-ribbon panel of talking heads and Beltway insiders to punch it out on the Don Lemon show.

The topic?

What other topic is there?

The Avatar of Kek. The Great Wall-Builder. The King of New York. The Master of the Deal. Slayer of Clinton the Terrible.

Donald J. Trump. Specifically, various people meeting with Donald Trump as part of his National Diversity Coalition.

One of those panelists was professional academic, Marxist gadfly, and “social justice enthusiast” Marc Lamont Hill.

For an example of Hill’s commitment to academic rigor and intellectual honesty, see Politifact about his (false) claim that every 28 hours, a black man is shot and killed by the police.

Anyway, in the course of the event, this happened:

“You should have “experts” at the table.”

What he means is, you should have “academics” at the table, or, put more bluntly, you should have MARC LAMONT HILL at the table, and other professional race hustlers rattling their tin cups and crying:

“White daddy, white daddy, give me something!”

“To keep bringing up comedians and actors and athletes to represent black interests is demeaning, its disrespectful, its condescending. Bring some people up there with some expertise Donald Trump, don’t just bring people to entertain.”

It was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo op for Donald Trump.

I’m going to give Marc Lamont Hill his fair shake right now. Based on the question that preceded his statement, he was addressing the National Diversity Coalition of the Trump campaign, not Steve Harvey, Kanye West, Jim Brown, et al.

It doesn’t make the substance of the comment any better.

Having meetings with black men who aren’t Hill’s particular clique is “demeaning, disrespectful, and condescending.”

Calling an entire segment of black men and women “mediocre” for associating with Donald J. Trump is not demeaning, disrespectful, or condescending, in the peculiar reasoning of Mr. Hill.

Got it.

I made a statement in regard to Feminists and their fetishizing of Hillary Clinton as president, ignoring the previous two cycles of Republican women running for president and vice-president respectively:

They don’t actually want a woman president; they want a president who, first and foremost, toes the party line, THEN, just happens to be a woman.

This is the same thing. Marc Lamont Hill and Negroes of his ilk don’t actually want to see black people in power; they want people who agree with them in power, then, if they happen to be black, so much the better because then, they can smear dissent as “racists.”

“Identity politics” is about using using “identity” as a shield for “politics.”

What are the politics being protected?

Internationalism, socialism, militarism, statism, and bureaucracy.

May God have mercy on you if you have the “identity” but not the “politics.” Then a Sambo like Marc Lamont Hill, at the behest of Master Legree (the international socialists), will appear and he will (rhetorically) whip you to death for your defiance.

Bruce LaVell, to his credit, called Hill on the bullshit remark, which Hill responded to by saying.

I didn’t name call.

This is how Progressives/Socialists/SJWs/The Political Left, in Hill’s case, Marxist, whatever you want to call them, do their business. They demand that you treat them with courtesy while they hurl bricks and bombs from the cheap seats. They get to call you “mediocre” and then when you stop them, they claim “I didn’t name-call.” These people are either fundamentally dishonest, or they are insane and don’t recognize the disconnect between their rhetoric and their actions.

P.S.

@1:14

Look at this goofy bitch grinning like an idiot. I swear on a stack of Bibles, there is nothing black females love more than watching two black men cut into each other. She might have had to go home, reach between her legs and knock one out after watch LeVell and Hill go at it.

It doesn’t matter how “educated” black females are, it doesn’t matter what their resumes look like, the majority of black American women are filled with a desire for chaos and strife and discord.

Occutards Redux: DisruptJ20

After a five year nap, the Occutards have arisen from their torpor in much the same fashion as that pale, coffin-dwelling bloodsucker made famous by Bram Stoker. They have dusted off their signs, recharged their IPhones, gotten another credit card from mommy and daddy, and are ready to stick it to The Man in the form of the Avatar of Kek, the Great Wall-Builder, the Conductor of the Trump-Train, and Milo Yiannopolous’ play-daddy, Donald Trump.

Except this time, they are calling themselves DisruptJ20.

Because that’s what they do: disrupt things.

They don’t produce. They don’t repair. They don’t create. They don’t build.

They show up, fuck up, and leave.

DisruptJ20: Call for a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017

On Friday, January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President of the United States.

More importantly, Barack Obama will no longer be President of the United States of America, which will come as a relief to all freedom-loving Americans and Yemeni wedding planners.

We call on all people of good conscience to join in disrupting the ceremonies. If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors, showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over.

How did we get to this “security state” I wonder? And who helped get us here?

Oh right, The United States’ first Mulatto President when he signed the NDAA in 2012 allowing for indefinite detention of those “suspected” of “associating” with terrorists.

Constitutional scholarship and/or protection of same is not ordinarily understood as symbolically wiping one’s ass with said document.

It must be made clear to the whole world that the vast majority of people in the United States do not support his presidency or consent to his rule.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, #NotMyPresident. I was present for that particular temper tantrum 16 years ago.

Get some new schtick.

Trump stands for tyranny, greed, and misogyny. He is the champion of neo-nazis…

Well, those Nazi LARPers are going to be super-salty when they discover that Trump has a Jewish son-in-law and his eldest daughter is a convert to Judaism.

…and white Nationalists,

What is it that “white Nationalists” think Trump is going to do for their cause? And isn’t Hillary Clinton just as white as Donald Trump? Or does she get honorary “color” points for being on Team Blue?

I still don’t have all the minutae of how the Oppression Olympics are scored.

…of the police who kill the Black, Brown and poor on a daily basis…

Not nearly as effectively as they kill each other.

…of racist border agents…

If they are, it’s understandable. Canadians are pretty much the worst people to ever exist.

/sarcasm

…and sadistic prison guards…

The same prison guards that endorsed Barack Obama in 2007?

Or maybe you mean the same lobbyists who work for the private prisons also worked on the Clinton campaign?

…of the FBI and NSA who tap your phone and read your email.

Hillary Clinton calls for more surveillance after Brussels attack

Obama’s Illusory NSA “Reforms”

He is the harbinger of even more climate catastrophe, deportation, discrimination, and endless war.

How so?

He continues to deny the existence of climate change…

HE EVEN DARES BLASPHEME HOLY MOTHER GAIA! BURN THE WITCH!

But buy some carbon credits to make sure it’s a carbon-neutral witchburning!

…in spite of all the evidence, putting the future of the whole human race at stake.

“We’re super-serious this time, guys! The sky really is falling!”

The KKK, Vladimir Putin, Golden Dawn, and the Islamic State all cheered his victory. If we let his inauguration go unchallenged, we are opening the door to the future they envision.

So…the American segregationists, the Russian president, the Greek nationalists, and the Muslim jihadists, are all in the same camp?

Trump’s success confirms the bankruptcy of representative democracy. Rather than using the democratic process as an alibi for inaction, we must show that no election could legitimize his agenda.

“Elections rocks…so long as we get the outcome we want!”

These people are beyond parody.

Neither the Democrats nor any other political party or politician will save us—they just offer a weaker version of the same thing. If there is going to be a positive change in this society, we have to make it ourselves, together, through direct action.

Now we get to real agenda, which I have bolded.

“Direct action,” in the Social Justice/Socialist/Communist vocabulary, seeks to conflate “civil disobedience,” such as protest, non-violent resistance of civil authorities, sit-ins, and the like, with violent thuggery, such as Antifa beatings of those they deem “fascists,” destruction of property (see Occupy Wall Street, Antifa, Anti-globalists at the WTO) sabotage (see the Earth Liberation Front, Animal Liberation Front), and riots (see the Black Friday Riot of 1910).

The political left (the left-right political spectrum is absolute nonsense, but for the sake of the reader, I use the term “Left” for common understanding) uses the term “direct action” to conflate non-violence with violence, and by doing so, preemptively justify any act of violence committed by their allies and followers.

From day one, the Trump presidency will be a disaster. #DisruptJ20 will be the start of the resistance. We must take to the streets and protest, blockade, disrupt, intervene, sit in, walk out, rise up, and make more noise and good trouble than the establishment can bear. The parade must be stopped. We must delegitimize Trump and all he represents. It’s time to defend ourselves, our loved ones, and the world that sustains us as if our lives depend on it—because they do.

Hyperbole.

In Washington, DC

DC will not be hospitable to the Trump administration. Every corporation must openly declare whether they side with him or with the people who will suffer at his hands. Thousands will converge and demonstrate resistance to the Trump regime. Save the date. #DisruptJ20

You’re either with us, or you are with Trump.

I’m pleased to see people are doing their best impersonations of George W. Bush.

Principled dissenters need not apply in in either case.

Around the US

If you can’t make it to Washington, DC on January 20, take to the streets wherever you are. We call on our comrades to organize demonstrations and other actions for the night of January 20. There is also a call for a general strike to take place. Organize a walkout at your school now. Workers: call out sick and take the day off. No work, no school, no shopping, no housework. #DisruptJ20

Three-day weekend!

Around the World

If you are living outside the US, you can take action at US embassies, borders, or other symbols of neocolonial power. Our allegiance is not to “making America great again,” but to all of humanity and the planet. #DisruptJ20

Spread the word. Join the fight. #DisruptJ20
