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

Perks, but what about responsibility?

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.

It’s not just tradthots like Laura Loomer or anti-feminists like Shoe0nhead who are parroting Dissident ideas to a thirsty male audience, but “entrepreneurs” and PUA types who throw out a few pieces of common knowledge with a polished looking website in hopes of getting money from people who already are likely down on their luck.

Want to charge people for a boot camp? How about “Dating” advice?  There’s always self-improvement that involves making tons of money by writing edgy blog content because clearly, that is an actual feasible thing.  You don’t really need an actual job, nor the skills and experience that comes with having one for your future. Just buy their stuff and girls and lots of success will come your way.

That valuable experience, contacts, friends and network created by working various jobs – no matter how menial apparently doesn’t matter and isn’t needed. All you need is a blog and a phone.   Now some of you have been told all about this a few years back, but there’s a new wave of subversive elements who want to talk the talk but not walk it.

Yea, life is hard and while we can blame feminism, SJWs, etc for it.   instead of any real solutions however, here’s some self-help with some “alpha” like words and phrases thrown in to make you feel like it something much different.

Shysters, Hucksters, and Infiltrators

This feeding of false hope is horrible and despicable on a moral level – especially any that laments losing core Western values and whatever is left of that.  How can you build or rebuild social trust and social capital when your own sphere is being subverted to the point of that trust being destroyed?

What the hell are we doing?

Deliberately feeding false hope and supposed “freedom” to live any way you want to susceptible broken shattered men and teenagers is shameful as is avoiding alternative theories that newbies may want to consider. But the something 50% of what’s left of the Manosphere selling supposed self-improvement don’t care.  Encouraging hedonism and narcissism sells apparently as well as sex does.

It’s hard enough for freelance journalists and real entrepreneurs to make money, but somehow kids writing about their Tinder experiences with your hosting site from a beach in Thailand is going to generate enough income for them to become financially independent and able to start a family if they wish?

With what contacts and network? (Someone on  the stream mentioned earlier makes the point most of these people pushing this have already established passive income streams – like owning property they rent out – which they of course don’t disclose because their writing and books is making them all the cash.)

People criticize Matt Forney all the time, but he took down most of his books because he couldn’t in good conscious sell stuff that isn’t applicable to the internet world in 2018. Who else does that?  This is how you can tell how much someone cares about the people they want to engage with.

You wonder how much these other people really care about the supposed community there are “creating” content for.  Do they really care if their “consulting” and advice ends up destroying your life and potential future? I’m starting to think they really don’t.  Sure, don’t go to college and get a worthless degree, but move overseas and everything is suddenly going to vastly improve without a real passive income stream?

What about your future? Don’t look toward getting a wife and building a career as a wife and children will hold you back from being a lifetime bachelor sailing around the world banging 100s of foreign women – as will a stable 9-5 job.  It’s no secret much of modern society is arrayed against young men, but these infiltrators and hucksters are adding more pain to their misery and disguising it as self-help.

Of course these hucksters appeal to your inner “alpha” in an attempt to persuade you that being a true Machiavellian is something that you really want.   Take for example the advocates of the Dark Triad which want you to fork over 300$ for some kind of uber Volcano lair meetup so you can feel like a man by being in the presence of “supposedly” top alpha men.   Iron may sharpen iron, but is there any iron here?

300$ to feel like an Alpha

If you put on that mask for so long, do you become that monster eventually? It’s a significant question and you need to ask yourself if it’s worth the price – considering you might be selling yourself, soul, and future livelihood for something that may have no material, spiritual, and measurable payoff.

Unfortunately, these are elements in the “Dissident Appropriation” in which that occurs. It’s often in the form of people looking to create a niche for themselves, purely for the sake and feeling of being “counter-cultural” because there’s no Patreon dollars of real controversy to draw attention to make the shekels if you are parroting the usual mainstream views.

You end up with a Dirty Dozen of denizens and not knowing what they really think, if they are some kind of subversive elements, or if they have any loyalty to the people and spheres they are trying to influence.  From what we’ve seen with recent Bloodsports and the implosion of the remaining Alt-Right, many of these people seem to be trying to fly close to the sun to attain maximum exposure and are willing to backstab and destroy anyone in their way.

So much for a stable foundation to rebuild the West or present any kind of feasible foundations to stand upon.  You start to wonder if they ever really had those intentions in the first place.

Granted there will always be jealousy of those who make a name for themselves and get “recognition” and those who don’t – regardless of what community you associate with. Furthermore to be fair, what man doesn’t want to create a name for himself wherever and whatever way he can?

Well let’s examine.

The Cost of Fame

A serious question that I wonder if people ask themselves is, “Do you really want all this attention?”  Do you really want to be a leader and deal with the actual vast and harsh burdens and responsibilities that come with it?

What about the cost to your family and any possible future that involves a stable financial footing? How much do you really care about those closest around you who arguably are the most important?

As we saw with the ROK Meetup insanity back in 2016, there comes a point where controversy and attention becomes a negative thing that has real cost to your family and livelihood.  We point this out and these deviants who engage consistently in the dark arts of Dissent Appropriation call us cucks.   Yea, it’s real cuckish to want to build a stable future for your family and friends.

Internet fame might be fun, but it’s also a curse and if have a family or hope to have one, it becomes quite a bit harder when you are trying to build any kind of family and legacy in order to become any kind of “leader.”  Again there comes a point when you end up with too much recognition from all the wrong people and it ends up greatly hindering yourself.

This isn’t 2005.  Anyone and everyone is a google search away from a damning internet post or ill worded rant torpedoing their career or imploding their network of contacts built over 20 years.  Yea sure, maybe they should have chosen better “friends” and contacts, but that takes a huge amount of time to do. It doesn’t happen overnight.  (Neither do the alternative platforms those in the Dissident Right are trying to build.)

Often some of these “leaders” remind me of feminists who want all of the perks but none of the responsibilities that come with leadership. It ends up boiling down to accepting praise for what goes right and gets attention and blaming others for what goes wrong and blows up in your face.

That’s not leadership.

Leaders are front and center. They don’t just write the walk from their anonymous blogs. They live that walk everyday and show people how it’s done.  When things go to hell, they clean it up and don’t deflect the blame.  The buck stops with them and their lives are the example.

This isn’t a game or a scene that you can simply stop attending.  Lives, careers, and people’s ability to not live paycheck to paycheck are at stake here.  Once people have put their names forward, they are susceptible to all the deviants and viciousness of SJW types gunning for their jobs and looking to make hell on earth for the lives of their family members.

If you are going to be some sort of leader, you better be prepared to help your “followers” deal with the shitstorms that come their way due to your influence and guidance.  Being a real leader of any kind – assuming any level of morality — means that you don’t just take their money and run – you face the music with/for them with that said money.

Briefly Remembering Charlottesville

Consider what happened with Charlottesville and the supposed leadership of the Alt-Right there.  When everything went to hell, there was no around to accept any responsibility let alone help the people who were likely going to lose their jobs from the mere association. (There had been warnings about the movement and the leaders.)

Jason Kessler ran away and is hiding, Spencer disappeared, and Cantwell acted like a tough guy on TV to Vice, while later crying on YouTube once he realized he was in real trouble.  Totally white ubermench alpha right there.  Instead of being self-proclaimed smart tacticians and strategists,  they all ended up being indirectly responsible for that lady’s death – regardless of what you think of her and specifically in the eyes of the American public.

These “leaders” couldn’t even police their own – regardless of false flags or not – and now ensured that the Alt-Right label was left to actual Nazis and foaming white supremacist types on the Daily Stormer.  It’s hard to tell people you aren’t Nazis when people with the damn flags show up or end up committing murders, because actual Nazis weren’t denounced hard or extensively enough.  (Seriously, who the hell let’s Nazis show up to their events?)

Furthermore, consider the tactical failure in having a “rally” there in a VERY hostile city with a government and police force that basically did everything to ensure a riot and violence would ensue.   Of course they weren’t going to play fair and restrain AntiFa from attempting to kill whoever there they deemed a fascist.

Why the hell didn’t they plan a rally somewhere that WAS NOT in a liberal stronghold.  Sure, you might want to protect a statue, but was it worth the shattered lives of the guys holding tiki torches who can’t find regular employment now? “Blood and soil” doesn’t matter that much if you can’t afford to live.  (How the awful optics of this evaded the minds of Alt-Right leadership, I have no idea.)

All this over a damn statue.

Now they’ve found that out the hard way.  While AntiFa and all the rest of their slack jawed deviant supporters will rejoice, it just adds to the list of broken young men who now have even a harder life then before and will ironically make them even radicalized in the process.

What kind of leader allows that to happen to their “followers” if they actually care about them instead of just the “cause”?  This is a very serious issue.  Very recently one of these young men – Andrew Dobson – who was there and not even a WN or even a follower of Spencer or these “other leaders” was doxxed and was harassed so much that he recently committed suicide.

Guilt by association. He made have been on the “right”, but the penalty for being near this rally has literally been fatal. Sure some henious assholes on leftist sites will rejoice, but who will comfort his family and friends?  It’s not just maddening, but it’s depressingly sad.

Again, this dude essentially lost his life over a damn statue.

One major criticism I heard of Richard Spencer – who isnt really the “Hitler” people make him out to be – and people like him is that they enjoyed the attention and the recognition of being “organizers”, but had little to offer both in terms of responsibility and aid when the Charlottesville debacle occurred.

Most of us already knew that most of the people – specifically leaders – in the Alt-Right were ready to betray and step on one another to be famous in the eyes of the Media.  (Not sure that’s a prize really.)   But what did we really expect with an ideology that shuns any real moral foundations to be replaced with some weird nihilist post modern “might makes right” crap?

N.T. Carlsbad from Therimdor Mag made this damning observation about what was left of the Alt-Right:

 “After the Enoch doxxing, after Charlottesville and now after the implosion of TWP, there simply is no fooling anyone. The illusion has been shattered. “Alt-right” is just a pompous synonym for white nationalist, and nothing more. The psychotic mania among the press that for some time drove them nuts about how the next-door neighbor kid drawing cartoon frogs might secretly be a member of an “alt-right” fifth column waiting for the right moment to ethnically cleanse minorities, has since dissipated and mellowed as the specificity of the alt-right has been made clear.

Andrew Anglin and weev no longer LARP as neo-Nazis, but as American nationalist MAGAmen, in response to this shift. With no enigma left to it (and it never got to the point of developing any real organizational capacity), the alt-right is now a tabloid media cash cow for the ADL and the SPLC to scare their donors into handing over those sweet shekels.”

I couldn’t have put it any better.  Stop following people who don’t care about you or anyone else.  Mike Enoch literally destroyed his life even further divorcing his Jewish wife – so he could prove his Jew blaming rants were legit. (Disclosure to you goyim, I found out I’m 3% European Jewish apparently.)

For what?

Now he’s alone and removed from a woman who seems to have loved him for some internet trolls and LARPers who don’t give a shit.  That’s not a life that you want emulate. Unless the leaders of a movement are willing to sacrifice themselves for you – like true leaders do – then you are wasting your time and your future.

These same people are still around and lurking in the Dissident Right looking for new targets and people to deceive and profit from – either for the sake of creating a name and recognition for themselves or for a sin as old as time – greed and the money that comes from it.

We need to ask ourselves, how much damage are we doing to people vs helping them?  What kind of identity are we forming? Yes, we know feminism and the excess of Modernism had wreaked havoc on the foundations of society and made it a hell of time to be a young straight male looking to succeed in life.

However are we just adding false hope to that miserly brew that they’ve already been thrust into?  We need to make sure people know the “risks”, while giving them as much advice, info, and knowledge from our mistakes and successes as we can.  If you become like Machiavelli, you might end up in a prison of your own – or someone else’s making just like him.

We are talking about fire and it burns – maybe for life if you end up with a mindset and worldview based on treachery, deceit, and a will to power with no moral restrictions.  Your soul can and is at stake when you expose it to this kind of lifestyle.

Perhaps at the core of this, one alternate explanation is the most depressing one; that some of the people being attracted to the Dissident Right by shysters aren’t being “taken in.”  They are willing participants who want to lie to themselves instead of put in the hard and long time to build something stable for their futures.

I suppose they will have to learn the hard way.

Learning From the Abuse and Death of Jaxon “Jax” Burnette

Jax Burnette

“If the sound of happy children is grating on your ears, I don’t think it’s the children who need to be adjusted.”
― Stefan Molyneux

They say a picture shows a thousand words and the picture below certainly does when it comes to the horrifying tragedy that is child abuse.

Jaxon “Jax” James Burnette

The death of Jaxon”Jax” Burnette was one of those horrid incidents that transcends much of the current political and cultural climate.  People really – and rightfully so – think child abuse is horrible.  People were worked up.  Groups were created dedicated to getting justice for Jax.  So to that that end Facebook groups, comment sections, and all the rest shrieked in anger.

After that it died out – with a few shrieks here and there.  So in this aftermath we need to do some serious adult talk time among ourselves and ask, “What have we learned?”

Probably not much.  In fact, we will probably see this same story again, people will express their noble outrage, and then it is back to the grind. (I understand, I have a life as well.)

If there’s anything I’ve realized over the last few years, it’s that the desire to burn someone at the stake or throw tomatoes at the criminal in stocks has never gone away – regardless of how educated, enlightened, or progressive we have gotten.

We have this ravenous unquenchable desire – almost on the level that fuels our sex, survival, and hunger drives – to be able to point at “villains” and in the process allow us to feel better about ourselves.

“At least I’m not like that guy!”

We need to shame, pass judgement, and feel above them.  Now in the case of Jaxon, those of us who aren’t abusing children are better than those who are not – at least on a moral level. However if we aren’t careful, we could easily be brought down low to their level.  Most people don’t like the idea of that, so they remain perched in their high moral ivory towers.

They writhe with righteous anger and indignation, call for the abusive parents to be taken out an shot, and spout about how shocked they are that something this terrible could happen.  Almost reminds you of how people change their Facebook profile to flag stripes of whatever country suffered yet another terrorist attack. Then they forget all about it.

It should make you question how much they actually care vs how much they wish to be perceived as people who do in their contrived sermons of indignation.  A dirty little secret is that most people don’t truly care.

 

The Mob Isn’t Really Interested in Preventing Child Abuse

The mob – righteous this time in their outrage – entirely missed the underlying factors which created the situations that led to the horrible tragedy that happened to Jax.  No one wants to attempt to understand what was happening to his parents because they fear it will be misconstrued as excusing their vile behavior.

Most of the tips, hotlines, and advice out there are for AFTER-THE-FACT instead of focusing on early stages. It’s similar on how always focus on “healing” the patient, but never on the preventative care to help avoid the injuries, diseases, or conditions in the first place.

Raising awareness about child abuse is useless if we aren’t doing “real talk” with people close to us who have young kids as well.  Because of the danger of social media shame mobs that could cost you your job and future prospects, no one who is about to snap from the pressure and lack of sleep will reach out for advice.

They don’t want to be shamed, nor admit that it’s much harder then they EVER thought it would be or that they had those horrid thoughts in moments of sleep deprived anguish.  If we can’t talk about it without the worry of someone reporting them to CPS, then many of these stories will repeat.

Something I’m now just finding out is that no matter what you do, kids still cry – especially infants and toddlers. If you’ve done everything possible, just let them be.  You aren’t a bad parent.   Instead of trying to be super hero parents, we need to encourage those around us to take a step back when stressed. If you have to put your screaming infant in a car seat in the bathroom for 15 minutes and turn the fan on, so be it.

That stepping back is key to stopping yourself from starting down the dark path to child abuse. Preventing yourself from getting to that path can’t be understated. Just like in Fargo, you can avoid that final woodchipper death by never getting in bed with devious criminals in the first place.

 

The Tragedies

When our second son Nehemiah was born, the hospital made us watch 3 videos about proper care for your infant before my wife could be released. One thing that came up was the case of Jaxon “Jax” Burnette

In conversation about it, a nurse told us that Missouri – where our second son was born when we lived there – had the most incidents of child abuse.  Sure enough in 2013 alone, there were over 61,000 reported cases in Missouri of which 31 died.  Most of the children were all under 4 years old – which is the stage where the most work, patience, and energy is required by parents.

(Note this is not a dig at “Fly-over country” or anyone from the South in particular.  The child abuse epidemic is widespread.) 

Dig back and harrowing stories pop up. Tons of other cases of shocking child abuse.  I’m not talking about spanking a tantrum raging 5 year old or a mother slapping a disrespectful teen, I’m referring to REAL child abuse. Story after story. Some of the ones listed below were the ones that stood out most to me.

  • A 10 year old girl down to 32 pounds, locked into a closet wallowing in her own excrement in a modern day vicious twist on Cinderella. In contrast,  her two sisters were well fed and cared for.
  • A mom beats her 17 month old girl to death and tries to pass it off as death from a spider bite. The terrible bruises around the neck, face, and the rest of the body would undermine her story to the point the police chief said it looked the girl had been in a car accident.
  • In Springfield MO – where me and my wife currently live – a 7 year old boy and 2 year old girl were starved, beaten, tied to chairs, and thrown down stairs. “The toddler was so malnourished, hair was falling out. She had scratches and cuts all over her body. Her feet swollen causing her toes to turn blue.”    How did it get that far?
  • A 37 year old woman sodomizes and rapes a two old boy, while having her boyfriend video tape it.  Obviously this goes way beyond physical child abuse.  The boy will be scarred deeply for life.
  • A 17 year old babysitter burned a 8 month old baby girl with a curling iron. Blisters were on her head, bottom of her feet, and all over her legs. To top it off, the babysitter then said the mom burned the baby girl further with the iron to shut her up.

What do all these cases have in common when you read through them?  How did they ever get to this point? 

“SCREW CHILDREN! That’s the mantra of the world. Instead of burying them with a national debt, shoving them in shitty schools, drugging them if they don’t comply, hitting them, yelling at them, indoctrinating them with religion and statism and patriotism and military worship, what if we just did what was right for them? The whole world is built on “screw children”, and if we changed that, this would be an alien planet to us.” – Stefan Molyneux

A lack of patience, self control, and selfishness.  

Unfortunately, the millennial generation in particular – of which I am a member – is often too busy or consider our futures to unpredictable and unstable to have kids. Some still end up remaining a burden, even after they grow out of their infant stage – an indictment of our selfish culture that excuses it’s loathing for children by contrived hysterics about not throwing more money into education.  (The home environment, not their school is where stability must be established.)

Still, despite various precautions babies happen planned or not.  Thing is they either are born to parents often just one parent these days who don’t really want them, don’t want to adapt their lifestyle for them, or can’t be bothered to have the patience that those first few years of a child’s life demand in high volumes.

So what do we do about it besides shrieking and going back to our normal lives later?

Step Out Of The Shadows

We need to encourage those who are struggling as first-time parents without support to come out of the shadows and to open up.  People will always judge, but plenty of us have or are still in the shoes of those who are new parents that are susceptible to “snapping”. Maybe part of it is pride holding them back from wanting to admit it to themselves.

New parents need to know that they can take a break for a moment.  Leave the room for 20 minutes. Hug each other.  Call a friend on the phone for support.  Maybe even leave the car seat, bassinet, or port-a-crib in the bathroom with the fan on for a bit.

Frustration and Anger are powerful emotions.

Even those of us with the best self-control need to realize we are human and we have to step back at those key moments where you honestly just want to punch the wall, throw the bassinet across the room, or curse the day your child was born.

Step back.  Realize what’s happening. Take a break. Yes, in case people try to misconstrue what I’m saying, child abuse is terrible and wrong. Let’s get to the root to help stop it before it bubbles to the surface.

I’ll give you a personal example from months back when my son was an infant.  I had this logical desire to “fix” the situation and rational methodology to do it.  Of course I forgot as I often do that babies sometimes will cry regardless of what we do.

It’s part of being a baby.  (Start letting them self-sooth from a young age or they might not be able to sleep with you rocking them to sleep!)

I can recall being in a frustrated and utterly exhausted state.  I shouted “Shut up!” at one of my boys. I’m pretty sure I threw an expletive in there.

Moments later after the frustration had been released, I’ll felt quite bad for yelling.  What was it going to do? What were the implications in the future if I was setting an example for them from their earliest years that yelling was how you dealt with frustration?

“They are only babies”, I’ll realize again for the umpteenth time moments later.   Just a few days before that,  I was so agonized by my three month old son Nehemiah loudly and incessantly crying that I simply picked him up, put him in our bed, propped him on some blankets, turned on the fan to drown out noise, closed the door, and went into the other room to get away from it.

Eventually he fell asleep.

Plenty of people will think admissions such as this make you a monster. They don’t.  If said people were honest themselves for once instead of trying to virtue signal some kind of moral high-ground to scold the rest of us from, they’d finally look in the mirror and see the truth for what it is.

None of this stuff comes from out of nowhere. It bubbles. It nags at you. It builds to the point where you are ready to explode.  Well, we need to slowly twist the cap off. Recognizing you have a problem – as they say – is the first step to leaving that stage of denial.

We’ve become a society who doesn’t want to admit weakness because there are plenty of people who only seek your demise or exposing your pain for the rest of the world to judge.

Seeking Support In The Right Places

I’m trying to avoid being political with this post, but I’ll mention one detail.  A close friend of mine mentions how Trump never apologizes for wrongdoing. I suppose he has a point.  However, considering the current cultural and political climate, would you apologize?

“Just apologize,” they say.  Why then does it seem an apology is never enough?  In today’s polarized social media climate, unlucky targets either have to resign from their job, close their business, or much worse.


Side notes:  Whatever you do – DONT post on social media the inner real thoughts you are having at the moment.  People will go after you, despite having similar thoughts themselves in the past. Also DO NOT go to social services.  I hate to say it but government employees and even hospital staff can’t be trusted.

You just never know if someone with a grudge will falsely accuse you or try to make your life hell.  If some bored pranksters on the internet can figure out where you live and send prostitutes and pizza to your house, people with access to your private record can wreck havoc.  Play it safe. 


People don’t seem to want an apology. They want mob justice and vengeance in order to signal their participation in the fervor.  Few things are deemed as bad as todays popular “ists” and isms”, but child abuse is one of them – as is the potential to become the one doing it.

Go seek the help, advice, aid, and support of people who really know you. Go talk to your close friends and family and tell them what’s going through your mind and how you feel like snapping sometimes. They’ve been through it and they can help guide you past it.

They actually care about you and you want you to become the best parent you can be.  Of course they care about your kids and want the best for them, just as you do.

So much of the terrible stories of child abuse we see today all over the news can be pre-empted early.   Let’s encourage people to realize and get the support they need earlier rather than later.

The tough early years of no sleep will pass.  Right now its already being replaced with a new challenge for me and my wife; the constant requirement to watch them as our oldest Julius runs fast and grabs anything he can, and our youngest Nehemiah crawls.

Now we have to be more aware. Just the other day my youngest was trying to eat the rather large crumbs and food – a choking hazard for an 8 month old – left behind moments before my oldest son.

In fact my oldest now knows what “No” means and he either throws himself, gets angry, hits you, or all of the above. Yes, there is a difference between discipline and punishment.We now undertake this new adventure.

Godspeed for all you parents out there.  Support and help is there.
