A crazed Nazi, Robert Bowers, who used Gab – and apparently Facebook and Twitter finally snapped after obsessing and hating the Jews for years upon end. “Screw your optics, I’m going in,” is his last post on Gab that is now living on in meme infamy before he shot up a synagogue.
Gab however would suffer further for Bower’s posts and for the posts of all the other apparent “white supremacists/Nazis” who frequent the platform. It’s hosting service would drop it, GoDaddy would purge it’s domain, and Paypal would refuse to do business with it anymore, and Medium would ban it. Mainstream media and crybullies from the Washington Compost to the New York Slimes pumped out articles bashing Gab and rejoicing in it’s demise cause “hate speech” – whatever that means anymore.

The Rotting Stink Clawing Away At Us
Author’s Note: This article will be updated, edited consistently, and possibly republished as I focus my thoughts and ideas as time goes on. I’m not an intellectual nor an amazing writer. I’m just some guy trying to flush out what plagues our modern existence. Thoughtful genuine critique is welcome. This long post is divided into two parts with the second focusing on ideas to forge a new mythos and identity.
Something is wrong with modern society. We can feel it in our bones. It chills us like a sinister X- Files conspiracy in which our souls and spirit have been stolen away. We can smell the rot abounding and growing in their absence and we know its more than just the curse of a bizarre post-modernism that’s permeated our modern lives.
The post-Cold War framework we evaluated, measured, and determined our identities no longer holds weight. Useless is the “left vs right” and “liberal vs conservative” paradigms that culture, politics, and even daily life were seen through. It’s been rendered obsolete by our new digital age and a “new” set of problems festering for decades behind the scenes that have finally surfaced.
Almost everyone regardless of their political affiliations can see that the world around is falling apart. We are reaping the seeds we’ve sown in the past all the way from the French Enlightenment to the Post-Christian West as our substituted gods have started to crumble.

For those of you who don’t know, Davis Aurini does a regular Sunday livestream which used to have Luke Ford at the background for video and the occasional Bechtloff jumping on to chat – I think John Steele was on this chat too. A month or two back they had a fallout over a stream dealing with protestant vs catholic issues and criticism of the Catholic church.
If you glance back in time Aurini from 5 years ago, you’ll notice a libertarian Atheist with some early Neo-Reactionary Monarchist ideas. Fast forward to the current year and he’s changed quite a bit both in the types of videos he’s put out as well as his life’s direction. (Hell, he’s a Catholic now.) Instead of triggering the libs, he’s become far more interested in remaining under the radar.

Guilt is a powerful weapon – perhaps even more so now in the internet age. Plenty of digital denizens bring their mace of shame down on surprisingly willing participants and recipients who kneel gracefully to receive each blow. It’s now become a yearly tradition for them.
For some reason, I always think Columbus day is on October 12th of every year and realize that’s its come based on the flurry of apparent straight white males telling other straight white males to feel guilt for their ancestors successes.
I’m not sure what to call these people, but let’s give this branding thing a try. Shamecucks? Guiltcucks? When it comes to “The Information War“, we definitely need an easy-to-recognize label by the mainstream that sums up what these people are doing in one word instead of, “They are shameful recipients of self-deprecating guilt while groveling in repentance and demanding we all do the same to a mob whose never satisfied with their pleading cries of supplication.”

Branding. Easy, understandable, and no-explanation needed labels, terms, and phrases with all the right kinds of connotations regardless of who hears them; a 711 worker, Chase teller, Facebook drone, Amazon warehouse workhorse, lobbyist, journalist, brand influencer, or dog groomer.
One group of people in particular have perfected it’s use: Activist Progressives. Those of us versed in the “culture war” and wrongthink have an inkling as to what this label means. Most “normies” however won’t. It could mean anything. Not good. Sad.
That right there is our number one problem. Yea, I’m serious. It’s worse than the deplatforming, twitter lynch mobs targeting us, Big Tech monopoly/censorship, and AntiFa beatings endowed upon us. In fact it’s whats enabled our current beatings and martydom in the internet arena suffered at the hands of the progressive mobs that don’t seem to stoke widespread and obvious condemnation by the masses.

What’s happening to Kavanaugh now is essentially the modern day equivalent of high-school gossip ripping through a school where the rumors get more pronounced and wild. At least the kids though have experienced the events in recent memory rather than 35 years ago.
Plus having twitter and Facebook to trash the people who didn’t invite you to the party or take their pants off for you helps prepare for revenge if need be. It all gives me a “Pretty Little Liars’ vibe. (Yes me and my wife watched the first season of it.)

We know the Salem Witch trials finally stopped when they accused the colonial governor’s wife. It had gone too far. No longer was it just some random slave from Barbados put through the ringer, but a member of the ruling class. What does this lesson hold for the modern digital age?

Should we flag and report every video from those on social media who demand bannings and digital burnings? Should Oliver Darcy have every single tweet, post, and any video’s he’s ever been on flagged? Perhaps its at that point. Perhaps we should fight bannings by demanding the banning of those who called for it.
About a week ago Wil Wheaton had deactivated his twitter account because Alex Jones still hasn’t been banned. Very Woke. You’ve also probably seen a bit about him using his Mastodon account. It’s basically an open source social media platform with a heavily progressive base susceptible to the usual mob like action something Wheaton thought could be avoided by leaving Twitter.
Predictably the pitchfork mobs made up of zealot progressives looking to virtue signal their wokeness by burning heretics was in full force at Mastodon. Wheaton ended up getting mass reported by its users and banned by staff for apparently being some sort of transphobe who doesn’t listen enough to the people slandering and bashing him by blocking one of them.
Honestly, I thought he would get #MeToo’ed, but it ended up being something like this. Wheaton made a kind of I’m-done-with-social-media-post on his site detailing a bit of this insane hillarity on his leaving twitter for the kinder and safer waters.

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.

“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.
