The Rationalized Insanity Of Richard Dawkins

I've mentioned before that as I grow older I feel myself being drawn to a more Neo-Reactionary, Traditionalist style of Nationalism, that fundamentally we're engaged in a spiritual struggle as well a material one, that if the material is allowed to run unfettered and rampant it will lead to nothing less than horror.

 To illustrate this point let us turn to a recent blog post by ''New Atheist'' Godfather, Richard Dawkins. The context here is that Dawkins announced on Twitter that he was about to visit Africa to attend a conference on elephant conservation, somebody called ''RightWingRebel'' replied to Dawkins announcement with this:
''Nice to see you're fighting for the lives of elephants but attacking the rights of the unborm''
This is of course related to the wider New Atheist war upon Christianity and correlating issues such as abortion, Dawkins belonging in the pro-abortion camp. Dawkins then went on to write a full article justifying himself, after a brief preamble Dawkins gets down to business...
So, let me turn to RightWingRebel’s reply to my tweet. It reeks of speciesism. An elephant is a mere “animal” while an unborn person is human. But the elephant has a highly developed nervous system and is beyond reasonable doubt capable of feeling pain. Indeed there is no reason to think an elephant feels pain any less acutely than adult humans do, let alone human embryos. There is even suggestive evidence that elephants feel grief, mourning the death of friends and relatives.

Collective Failures

Yesterday morning I got up at 05.40 am, just as I do every morning, and prepared myself for another day in my grim factory day job. As I drank my coffee and browsed the comments here under the latest article I listened to a YouTube video by Sargon of Akkad. Sargon's video entitled ''Problems with the Skeptic Community'' was essentially a wake up call to his fellow classic liberals, he suggested that they up their game and pick harder topics, that they should research their subject matter more thoroughly.

 That's all fair enough and I'm well aware of the limitations of classic liberalism, I blogged about it here, here, here and here.

But what ''triggered' me was that at around 7.30 in when Sargon told the Skeptics that:
 ''Come on you've all got can listen to audio books and play video games for 8 hours a day''
 And he's right they do, the issue is that we do not. Because while the Nationalist leaves home for a 10 hour day on the construction site, in the factory or in the office or by the supermarket shelf, the classic liberal Skeptic sits in his undies playing video games and pumping out content which counter signals what we have to say. Of course, all of our enemies are well funded, but the Skeptic Community are self funded, unlike the Marxian left, for example, who are awash in NGO and government funds.

The Post: Hollywood Rescues The Fourth Estate

When Donald Trump won the U.S presidency in 2016 I remember sitting in a pub with an old friend having a few pints. As a couple of amateur film buffs we speculated on how Hollywood would search for ways to cleverly undermine Trump, how would it manifest itself ? what coded messages would the movies contain? 

One idea we kicked around was that liberal Matt Damon would reboot the Jason Bourne franchise, Bourne would come out of retirement and rejoin the ''Deep State'' to thwart the dastardly plans of a crazed lunatic who'd just become president.

 The Hollywood machine is actually rather cumbersome and it takes about a year from a film being given the green light to it actually appearing on the big screen, the movies which came out immediately after the Trump victory and into the summer missed the opportunity for some Trump bashing but the movies coming out now have had the full gestation period, so we can expect Hollywood's anti-Trump propaganda to begin hitting theatres now.

 And that brings us nicely to the trailer of the new movie ''The Post'' directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.

SS Britannia: Honeypot Spies in the UK Alt-Right

No Brutus of Troy this week, instead there is a solo podcast from Sven Longshanks looking at infiltration of the ‘so-called’ Far Right in Britain, particularly the Hope Not Hate spy who deceived the London Forum and the three tarts who tried to infiltrate the National Front, Generation Identity, For Britain and Heritage & Destiny, with varying success. These girls are little better than prostitutes, selling their feminine charms to the highest bidder to use them to sneakily film people who have been decent enough to invite them into their meetings, or to offer them a lift home.

The Great Digital Leveler

It's hard to think of a more inherently egalitarian invention than the internet, through the internet everybody has a voice, everybody has a platform, everybody who wants one has a stool in the public square to stand on and preach to the masses. The vast majority of people on the internet will be quite rightly ignored because the main bulk of the content on the internet is drivel. But nevertheless, there is equality in opportunity if not outcome.

 The Left should love the internet, it should be their wildest fantasy come true, finally information and opinion has been socialized, handed to the common man. I am the common man, I spend my working life in a factory pressing a button but even I, via this blog, have a platform, a voice. In theory I have attained equality with the editor of The Times or The Guardian, and while their ''news'' outlets are multi-million dollar operations with large (though decreasing) readerships their opinions are not more valid than mine because of it.

The same can be said of social media, Wehrmacht1488 on Twitter has the same square box to write his views and opinions in as Hillary Clinton, J.K Rowling or David Aaronovitch. Once again, equality has been achieved. The liberal Left should be happy that the every-guy has access to the same platforms as his cultural and political elites, but they aren't.

SS Britannia: A Sexual Utopia?

Sven Longshanks

Sven Longshanks and Brutus of Troy co-host an episode of SS Britannia looking at the recent male witch-hunt in the British government for men who may have chatted up their secretary once fifteen years ago, in connection with the Harvey Weinstein casting couch scandal. Both of these stories serve to distract from the real crimes going on, that it’s Jews doing this in Hollywood and that the British government has a problem with paedophilia, not men putting their hands on journalist’s knees.

First though there is a discussion about the ‘It’s Ok to be White’ campaign, which is absolutely genius and amazing that nobody thought of doing it before. Anyone criticising it looks like an extreme racist and even the Alt-Lite have picked up on it, with Milo and Cernovich selling Ok to be White T-shirts.

Sympathy For The Death Penalty

I found myself weirdly excited this week by President Trump's demand that the New York terrorist be executed for his crimes against the American people, and I certainly wasn't alone, I was but one of the 169,000 people who ''liked'' Trump's Tweet and the idea of putting this man down like a dog.

Trump knew that his base would want the ultimate punishment for the Muslim terrorist, and as their representative, their mouthpiece, their dispenser of justice, he was quite prepared to give them it. This is of course an inherently ''populist'' position in which the baying mob is appeased and their blood-lust satiated. Many years ago the subject of capital punishment was discussed on the ghastly BBC program ''The Daily Politics'', the gay Tory Michael Portillo argued that the British political class knew that the public would vote for a return to the death penalty if given the choice but that they, the political class, had ruled it out. For Portillo it was fine to allow the masses a say over certain decisions but not others, sometimes the enlightened elites had to step in and quell the savagery of the proles.

Is The SJW A Failed Experiment Of The Left?

I try to stear clear of blogging about Social Justice Warriors and their antics because bashing the SJW is a crowded field these days and what the SJW's actually have to say is largely irrelevant when one can go directly to the (usually Jewish) source of their doctrines and ideas. The very term ''Social Justice Warrior'' is one of ridicule and derision, they are the ''Special Snowflakes'' the object of a million memes lampooning sad feminists and skinny white men lamenting their ''White Privilege''.

 However, rather than write another post lampooning their ideas which I've done before and, let's be honest will probably do again, I thought it might be interesting to take a look at what their purpose was supposed to be and where it all went so horribly wrong. And it has gone wrong, the Left leaning media has spent much of the post Brexit and Trump earthquakes debating among themselves whether or not Social Justice is of any use to the wider New Left project and the consensus seems to be increasingly ''No!''.
