Did France’s “Diverse” World Cup Team Come At The Cost of African National Teams?

So why take a look at this now after the world cup has passed? Well, waiting a while helps clear the mind and give some time for the fanatics and devoted fans who watch futbol every 4 years to dissipate back to their normal lives where they don’t actually follow any leagues or national teams.

What get’s lost in the mix is some important reflection, particularly that diversity is turning European countries like France, Germany, and Italy into futbol powerhouses at the expense of the nations those players were born in.  It’s almost a form of “cultural appropriation”, but is instead ethnic/racial in nature.   Ironically, we don’t see similar impassioned denouncements from the usual suspects.

Is Walking The Social Media Tightrope Worth the Risk Anymore?

“Twitter is weird. A huge amount of what’s written there is metatextual commentary on other tweets intended for a knowing audience reading in a specific moment. It’s an ephemeral, self-referential mode of discourse that is unfortunately not ephemeral or tied to reference points at all — in fact, it’s designed to be broadcast, archived, searched, and embedded by anyone, in any context, at any point in the future.” – Ezra Klein from Vox

Well is it?

Successful provocateurs will say yes and unfortunate souls like Justine Sacco will say it most certainly was not.  I’ll theorize that a good chunk of users want to make a name for themselves at some point.  They want to be famous and thus will have to walk the tightrope.

Everyone wants to build their own special brand. They want to be someone unique, while being controversial enough to push just the right buttons and step outside boundaries by inches to stand out in a crowded online world.  Provocation = profit.  A few make a living and following by doing this and the rest don’t.  You can be a self-made man and be your own boss!  Basically you self-brand.

We of course have a bit of familiarity with those who make it and can ACTUALLY freelance and pay their bills because they did just that.  That “fame” and newly acquired online rep comes at a price though; you can go from self-made and having made it to zero quite fast.

AntiFa Are The Descendants of Karl Marx’s Revolution

Editors Note: This is an old post that was re-posted with updated analysis for the current day in light of increasing violence and unrest in the streets, rallies, and protests by AntiFa.

Today Marx’s sympathizers and his actual modern day acolytes like to make distinctions between words like communist, socialist, marxist, etc. Considering the  history of Communism in the 20th century, I guess for good reason.  What many people haven’t considered is the violence that Marx himself advocated in order to achieve system overhaul and his proletariat revolution.

“I am a revolutionist. I want to march in the shadow of the great Robespierre. Let blood drip from my hands. Let blood flow through the streets and victory shall be ours. Here is what virtuous citizens would say to you if he, our great lord and master, Robespierre were still alive today.

 

When an overcrowded vessel is caught at sea in a violent storm, a part of the crew is thrown overboard to save the rest, and so we must kill those citizens who stand against us in order that righteousness may prevail. So let us kill. Let us exterminate the bourgeois in order to save society from catastrophe. We will save them, or we will kill them and save them. It is their choice.”

Marx had entered Paris in February of 1848 and on March 4th he gave this speech to one of the revolutionary cells there.  Most people have never heard of this speech called the “I am a revolutionist speech.”   To be fair, nether did I. Marx’s speech was his endorsement of what would become the foundation of this new revolutionary religion that would engulf much of Europe during the revolutions of 1848.

Are The Residents Of A “Shithole” Nation Responsible For It Being A “Shithole?”

Editor’s note: Post was republished with further thoughts and an expansion upon of commentary upon the impact of history and culture on a people. 

“Appalachia’s idea of a moderate drinker was the mountain man who limited himself to a single quart [of whiskey] at a sitting, explaining that more ‘might fly to my head’. Other beverages were regarded with contempt.”

Bold title huh?  To some extent the answer is, yes.  Governments ARE us.  Blame can be thrown out for some issues, but it can’t alleviate our responsibility completely in how our nations, provinces, regions, etc form and operate.

Despite Mongolian domination and destruction for 300+ years, China is not a shithole while parts of Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Iraq, etc. are.

Why?

Well a people’s culture are actually VERY significant as are the traditions, heritage, language, and attitudes that shape them, their history, and set foundations for their future.  Let’s get down to brass tax.

Do we get the governments we so richly deserve? Are the people of a nation just as responsible for it’s path as it’s government?  These are sobering questions, if not harsh one’s about a people’s morality and culture.  This is the main thrust of the this post.

Years Of the USA Lacking Political Violence Was Abnormal, Now Its Being Normalized Again

Governor Pat Brown of California said, “Goldwater’s acceptance speech had the stench of fascism. All we needed to hear was Heil Hitler.” Mayor Jack Shelley of San Francisco claimed that Goldwater strategists got all their ideas from Mein Kampf

Imagine going out with your family for walk to the park in urban New York or Chicago. Getting ready to leave and wanting to keep the sun out of your eyes, you quickly grab a #MAGA off the shelf thinking nothing of it.  Maybe you put on a dirty NRA shirt or something resembling a pro-Trump slogan.

You are on a brisk stroll there enjoying the fresh air.  WHAM!  Sudden pain and dizziness fills your head from someone ambushing you from behind with a punch. Maybe they attack your wife and girlfriend as well because guilt by association.   Perhaps they continue beating you after you’ve fallen on the ground and make threats about what will happen to you and your kids if you dare set foot on their street again.

No, this has happened quite yet, but we are on a path toward normalizing the random beatdowns of people wearing the wrong clothes, hats, slogans, logos, and saying the wrong opinions in supposedly safe public places.   First and foremost, this seems to be now normal routine at “protest” and “rally” locations in the last few years across the country and specifically in Blue strongholds.

What Next After “Unbearable Whiteness” is Eliminated?

Editors Note:  I use quotes and italics for “white” and various suffixes of it because it’s hard to know who is “white” and how that’s determined anymore. (Mixed? Italians? White Hispanics who have too much conquistador in them? Arabs? North Africa? What?)

Unbearable “Whiteness” overtook these divers as they rescued Thai children who had been stuck in a cave. Pay no attention to the fact that these kids are safe, but rather to their rescuers who were clearly not burdened enough by their… “whiteness”.     What deplorables!  In fact we should encourage this behavior, but more on that later.

https://twitter.com/OrwellNGoode/status/1017067718053330944

It must be quite the burden.  “Whiteness” here. “Whiteness” there. “Whiteness” everywhere!  What can be done to deal with horrid state of institutional systematic “whiteness” dear advocates of love, harmony, justice? Sometimes I fear that the burden may be too much to overcome.

The term itself isn’t just speaking truth to power.  Lucrative it has become.  Over the last few years more and more woke people – often “white” themselves – drop it as an odd badge of honor. It’s now permeated out of the backwater holes and into the mainstream.

Examining the Coverage of AntiFa Vs Patriot Pride In Portland

Before we get started, take a close look below as this cis straight white male is hit – literally – by reality thanks to this obvious black Nazi dude in a #MAGA hat.  (He actually managed to keep it!)  Obviously that’s Clayton Bigsby with the Patriot Prayer crowd.

Kanye would be proud.

I wonder why people show up to these insane events where blood, sweat, and nasty smells fill the air with abundance – especially in Portland.  Conversations are avoided and bloody knuckles are used to settle disputes.  Everyone is screaming. No one is listening.  Normal people of course go about their daily business.

But in Portland when it comes to these events, nothing is ever normal.  Everything is abnormal.  Conversation is for the weak.  The most provocative, incendiary, and useless terms are thrown about.   In this case, it’s the usual useless term of Nazi that’s applied so much, that even a Jewish trans lesbian can be a Nazi – if she holds the wrong views.

Consider this particular riot and the AntiFa’s screaming at Patriot Prayer and how they are all Nazis.

Give Thanks to the Father’s Who Are There Every Day.

One thing I’ve noticed about being a father is a lot of what you do is often not noticed- at least till much later.  Not many people see the small things, and sometimes they end up seeing the mistakes and area’s where you can improve.

Often it feels like a grinding task that is quite underappreciated. I suppose mother’s feel the same – though people care much more.

That said, Thank You, to all the father’s out there who are working their asses off trying to support their families.  Yes, no one may notice, but us fellow fathers do.

Thank you to all the father’s who devote as much time as they possibly can to their kids and to raising them as best they can.

Thank you for just being there, even when everything seems to conspire against you doing just that – for those of you who are divorced, single, and barely getting any time with your kids via court order. We know you are not a dead beat.

Thank you for the time, resources, encouragement, lessons, and memories you’ve invested  in your son’s and daughters present and future. Other people may not see. There likely won’t be any viral social media posts or noteworthy news articles posted about it.

However, your kids and your inner circle will know.

We work hard and expend all of our energy for the sake and love of our  children, families and close friends.  Perhaps no one will give us the appreciation we really deserve, but the legacy you help build matters far more. Sometimes I feel like all around me can never really see how much I am actually doing, but merely point out what I’m not or simply ignore it.

It’s at these moments when depression is trying to sneak it’s way in that I take a deep breath.  I remember to be thankful for my family, what I’ve been able to do, and the time period I’ve been born into and contemplate on how there’s never been a better time to be alive.

Don’t look toward a hostile culture and society that hates and vivifies you for satisfaction, admiration, or laudable laurels to rest on your head.  You may never be viewed by them as anymore than a sperm donor and a cog to keep working and making money till you drop. Look toward your family, friends, and members of communities who know YOU are, what you going through, all you are putting on the table, and the sacrifices that you make.

You as a father matter.

I’m sure you know the stats about the lives of children without fathers and how they are more prone to everything from crime and depression to having much less of a chance to get a good education and be successful in life.  The consequences for children without fathers in their lives can be severe – if only society really cared about that.

Thank you for all you do to try to give your kids the best lives you can. Keep on at it and slowly remove those from your lives who simply wish to undermine, downplay, and ignore what you do.  Life is short. Spend it with the people you love and your time with those who are worthy of it.

 




The “Current Year” Is The Best Year To Be Alive

We Are Living In The Best Time To Be Alive

Another day, another crisis.  People cheating on each other, drama, social media lynch mobs, vitriolic dialogue dialogue , families imploding over elections, and widespread social anxiety and depression because life isn’t exactly what we want it to be at the given moment.

Well, it could be a hell of alot worse.

I’d rather be living in the favelas of Brazil, then living in 1400s Persia waiting for the Mongolian onslaught.  However, there is much more to life than just “safety” and all those fun statistics in which you have more of a chance of getting killed by lightning rather then invasion by a foreign horde and army.

With the rather insane speed travel of news these days, it’s easy to hear about everything bad that may have happened that day.  This magnifies our perception and interpretation of occurrence of the bad and often downplays the “good”.   Bluntly put, people don’t care about saving puppies as much as they care about burning them alive.  Negative events and news makes us likelier to react, engage, and get angry– a fact that’s been explored quite a bit.

This probably says something very disturbing about human nature that’s been amplified and brought to the surface with social media and the internet in general.

However, what we often overlook is not just the fact that we have a much greater chance to live, but specifically the ability to live well and in much comfort.   If you were homeless and destitute even 300 years ago, you’d probably die off pretty quick.  Our homeless can live for decades – even with piss poor living conditions.

Infiltration of the Dissident Right with fake leaders, shysters, hucksters, and lowlifes.

Everyone wants to be someone important.

Forney with Aurini had a recent stream on Candice Owens and her rise to prominence via “grifting” in Conservative circles.  I will say that I don’t hold quite the antipathy toward Owens as others do and I specifically appreciate her role in helping to confirm what many of us already knew about Zoey Quinn – that she was harassing herself and making a virtue signaling false flag racket with it.

It however brings up an overall trend that’s been happening in the last few years and what I’m going to label as “Dissident Appropriation”.    We saw it with the anti-feminists on YouTube, the Skeptic “community”, various members of the Red Pill communities, and in the Dissident Right in general.

What did we see?

Even in the Dissident Right as well as other associated spheres, you’ll notice there’s a crop of people – often anonymous or semi anonymous – trying to create a name for themselves.  It happened with the manosphere and now it’s happening throughout the Dissident Right at large.

People coming in to make a quick buck and trying to create a product – not a bad thing necessarily – but with little actual ORIGINAL thoughts and ideas. They just rehashed what had been circling in the various spheres from the abstract and intellectual writings of reactionaries to the Red Pill shock jock larger-than-life style bloggers.
