Media-Nazis' Own Goal

All over the western world, the mainstream media are infested with illiberals: the humourless, conscienceless, Islam-loving Politically Correct Fascists of the Left who crawl out from under their rocks each day for no other purpose than to police the thoughts of those few who remain capable of thought and close them down.

So desensitised to this infestation are most of the sheeple that it's very hard to persuade them of the reality of it, much less motivate them to do anything about it. Yesterday, CNBC did all civilised human beings, and the sheeple, a favour by making it unambiguous. In the third Republican presidential debate, John Harwood, Becky Quick and Carl Quintanilla behaved with an unprofessionalism this former current affairs interviewer has never seen before in his life, even from the illiberals who dominate the New Zealand media. Ostensibly they were there as disinterested non-partisan moderators, not advocacy journalists. Yet they did not question; they asserted. They did not leave their own views outside the studio door; they wore them on their deformed tongues and tried to vomit them all over the candidates and the camera lenses. They did not seek to elicit enlightenment on behalf of Republican primary voters trying to decide whom among the eleven to vote for; they sought to interpose their own PC theology and make the proceedings all about them (I lost count of how many times the grotesque and rather slow Ms Quick used the first person singular). They did not pursue explication on matters of substance; they launched gratuitous ad hominem attacks.

All of this, while lamentable, was most edifying. The candidates quickly wised up as to what was going on and closed ranks. Ted Cruz then identified it:

The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don't trust the media. This is not a cage match. And, you look at the questions--'Donald Trump, are you a comic-book villain?' 'Ben Carson, can you do math?' 'John Kasich, will you insult two people over here?' 'Marco Rubio, why don't you resign?' 'Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen?' How about talking about the substantive issues the people care about?"

He contrasted this behaviour with that of the fawning sycophants who hosted the love-fest with the Democrats on CNN a couple of weeks earlier, in a debate he described as an encounter between "the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks."

Marco Rubio got in an even better line when he called the mainstream media "Hillary's Super PAC" who had been prodigiously proclaiming the week in which Clinton was shown incontrovertibly to have lied about Benghazi to be her best campaign week thus far.

Never was mainstream media maggotry more manifest.

Deliciously, on this occasion it has spawned the overdue rise of Ted Cruz, arguably the best of a field that is the most libertarian since Reagan (for all that even the avowedly libertarian Rand Paul is not running as one). The illiberal media maggotry was imprudent enough to expose its underbelly, affording every viewer on the planet an "actual size" view of the infestation's reality and hideousness. The planet will be the better for that.


Impressive to be sure

I've loved the pandemonium Trump has caused in the ranks of the Republican Establishment. I love that he's made the other candidates gets serious about keeping out trash. But the more I see of him the more I'm convinced he's an infantile, a pre-millennial millennial, who thinks everything's about him in the manner of most entities under 40 occupying the planet who look like adult humans but have less maturity than a new-born. He never completes a sentence and his opinion of others is entirely dictated by theirs of him. If the Ayatollahs praised him he'd say they were "great guys." He condemned Pam Geller for holding a Mohammed-drawing competition, not her would-be murderers. He has no moral compass. He says kick out trash one day but let it back in through a "big beautiful door" the next. It seems the adults are gaining on or overtaking him now—Carson and Cruz in particular.

But damn it, I'd miss him if he dropped out! Who else would call the ghastly Debbie Washerwoman-Shits the "crazy neurotic" that she is?!

Quite the CV Cruz has no?

IMHO, Trump, as immoral as a crack ho as he may be, will definitely buy civilisation some time, but perhaps Cruz is the one with enough cerebral puff to not only accomplish that, but also to exact some collectivist blood in the culture war.

He keeps mentioning Atlas Shrugged on the senate floor as well. For that reason alone he may get my vote.

Enemies of America and Freedom

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture

Blacks and Hispanics are massively politically illiberal in America. Compared to most, they heavily reject both economic and social/personal freedom. This is the ethnic elephant in the room. But to note this important truth is to violate almost universally-accepted standards of PC and MC, and to invite charges of bigotry. Still, America needs as many pro-liberty people of all stripes as it can get.

Libertarians suck

Tore's picture

as bandler, or one of his many guises (let's face it, you have a shitload of online identities, even on this site alone), say:

"Libertarianism has taken a turn to the Left."

Not only this, but they are, and have been, just jacking off for a long time. And instead of important causes, they decided to fight for peoples "right" not to educate their children, for instance. Fuck 'em all to hell. This is why you can write off the libertarian-loving TAS more than ARI, as they are in bed with them.

That's my two cents to what was written by Bandler. I don't follow politics hard enough to say anything more worthwhile than that.

The Green Inferno

Luke Setzer's picture

Since Doug Bandler raised the subject of "social justice warriors" or SJWs, I just had to bring to readers' attention a recent horror film that literally serves SJW heads on platters called The Green Inferno:

"A group of student activists travels to the Amazon to save the rain forest and soon discover that they are not alone, and that no good deed goes unpunished."

See "'Bear Jew' Eli Roth Unloads on 'Out of Control' SJW Culture" for more insight.

The film itself is trash I have no intention of watching but I loved the fact that SJWs were the target for the reasons the director articulated.

Now we need a quality film that accomplishes the same goal of skewering SJWs.

 

My thoughts so far

Doug Bandler The Second's picture

The Left is getting progressively worse by the year it seems. And far more hostile to non-liberals in general. They are on their way to becoming neo-Bolsheviks which is what I called them 4 years ago on this forum. The latest leftist movement is the SJWs; ie "social justice warriors" which essentially means that they are anti white, anti-male, anti-Christian and anti-merit based capitalism. Its late stage leftism oriented around race and gender. In fact, their current debate is whether a white male "with privilege" like Bernie Sanders is leftist enough over a woman. The Left, now that it had a black President, is desperate for a woman president even though she is economically less leftist than the male candidate. This is what leftism has come to.

Regarding the Republicans, Trump's rise was the result of his anti-immigration stance. No matter how Objectivists can argue for open immigration, that position is NOT popular in America. Trump almost got himself in trouble in the debate by sounding like he changed his position. He clarified that up in today's press. Trump has been very pro-gun and very immigration restrictionist. Two things which if he weakens on will destroy his campaign. He's not as libertarian as I would like, but IMO immigration is the number one issue facing America and the West (also his tax plan is not bad). As much as I would like the minarchist paradise, if whites lose their majority in America we will become Brazil or South Africa. Maybe even worse. As a recent Stephan Mollyneaux video demonstrated ("The Truth About Immigration and Welfare"), Hispanics do not vote Democrat because they are alienated by Conservatives (as Brook and ARI argue). They vote Left because they are state worshipping Leftists (even Asians are big welfare recipients, higher than whites). White American Conservatives are starting to realize this.

White people are starting to sense how hostile the Left is to their interests. Obama has made this obvious with his blaming white racism for every ill in the country. And it is becoming obvious that the Democrats are the party of non-whites and women. Even in America among white liberal men there is a growing sense that the Democrats hate white males. I expect to see white males moving away from the Democrats. What this means for liberty is anyone's guess. But the more "far Right" Trump is the more "KASS" the rest of the GOP candidates will be. Even liberal women like Trump. As I used to argue, women are attracted to male strength. And who has a stronger psychology, Trump or Jeb Bush? Trump has started a positive spiral effect for the Right. I hope he doesn't get soft.

I'll say more on this as it develops as I am more in touch with what is motivating the Right then any Objectivist is. Keep this in mind, it is the Alt-Right movement that is growing in America, not libertarianism. Libertarianism has taken a turn to the Left. Standard libertarian movements with the exception of the Austrians hve become sympathetic with the Pomowankers. Even the ARI is putting out content which gives off Leftist vibes. This is bad because unfortunately there is anti-corporation sentiments in the American Right which has both good and bad motivations. Many core Conservatives are pissed at corporations importing non-white labor and destroying the real estate values of formerly white neighborhoods. Also, in the current context of price controls, immigration has decreased wage rates for Americans (both white and black). There is backlash and tax increases for the rich polls very favorably. I know, I don't like it either. But understand that Trump's people know this which is why he has to walk a difficult path. If OrgOism were more sophisticated it could have structured its advocacy by showing how the violation of free markets have led to the bad consequences we see in unemployment and how those Cronyist policies were motivated by anti-white sentiments among leftists and with complicity by big business. I would stress the entire history of the 1965 Immigration Act's intention to change the racial demographics of America. I would also feature the Department of Housing's constant move to relocate low or no income blacks into previously all white areas just like Ferguson Missouri. Do you think that would grab peoples attention? But of course OrgOism puts out Milquetoast cookie cutter crap. The same crap they have been putting out for decades.

Anyway, interesting times.

Cruz

Cruz deserves everybodys vote for this all alone, despite all the religious moose shit the man has in his brain.
