The sin of Denethor

The Atlantic is terrified by the inevitable rise of the Alt-Right in a post-Christian West:
For years, political commentators dreamed that the culture war over religious morality that began in the 1960s and ’70s would fade. It has. And the more secular, more ferociously national and racial culture war that has followed is worse.
So are cucks like Dreher and Douthat:
Read the whole thing. It’s important. It’s a confirmation of a line Ross Douthat had a year or so ago, telling the left that if they didn’t like the Religious Right, just wait until the see the Post-Religious Right. I’m getting anecdotal reports from readers and from acquaintances that young people with smartphones are not only streaming pornography, but also getting massive doses of political extremism on their devices. One source who sees the boys in his conservative Christian high school embracing white nationalism speculates that the megachurch Christianity of these high school seniors is not facing the reality of the world around us. If true, then the pastors and other religious authorities in these kids’ lives are simply not forming them as Christians to live in the post-Christian world that we have.

On that point, last night in DC, I talked with a senior official of a prominent Christian college, who told me that institutions like his are at Defcon 1 on religious liberty for institutions like his — and he is as baffled as I am why so many churches are silent. He spoke to me after my Benedict Option speech about the point I made in it re: pastors and religious leaders who aren’t preparing their congregations for hard times, even the possibility of persecution, are failing in their responsibilities. He said that’s true in his experience. We agreed that Christians in America aren’t going to know what hit them.
It's amusing that Rod calls it "the Douthat scenario" when Douthat only picked upon the obvious a year ago. Years before that, nearly everyone on the alternative Right was warning the idiot cucks and Churchians that they had better embrace and join the nationalist Right or they will find themselves being steamrolled by the ultra-nationalists.

FFS, Cuckservative was published more than one year ago. But the cucks never want to admit that they are wrong, or point anyone in the direction of the truth. They need to try to maintain the utterly risible fiction that they are the only responsible predictors of the future, when in reality their game is to try to spot the parade and then leap in front of it to try to redirect it. Then surrender.

The feckless, cowardly, and non-confrontational Dreher calls, naturally, for a feckless, cowardly, and non-confrontational approach he calls "the Benedict Option". The Christian Alt-Right, on the other hand, anticipates Revival, Repatriation, and Reconquista 2.0 throughout the West.

Stop whining. Stop crying. Stop complaining. Stop prophesying inevitable doom. Stop cowering and stop cucking. The constant defeatism among the civic nationalist Right is remarkable, especially when compared to the growing confidence of the Alt Right. Spanish Christians were conquered and ruled by Muslims for centuries and yet they still didn't give up hope, much less prophesy doom and defeat when they were still the overwhelming majority.

The problem is not women, or immigrants, or the government, or the electorate, or anything else. The problem is you. Because you're afraid and you would rather indulge yourself by giving in to despair than pray, fight, and win. It isn't the West or the European nations that have been defeated, only the fake Civic Right who never intended on doing anything but surrendering from the start.
Read any of the so-called conservative writers of the Official Right™ and you get the impression that the world began in 1938. Every bad guy in the world is Hitler and any hesitation about rushing into war is appeasement. More important, they think the great intellectual tradition of the Right starts with the day Bill Buckley penned God and Man at Yale. Everything before that is fairy tales and mythology from a foreign people.

Of course, this is not an accident. Buckley conservatism was a break with the old traditional Right, if it was ever actually of the Right, which is debatable. George Will famously called Buckley’s Yale book “a lovers’ quarrel with his alma mater.” It was also a good way to describe the conservatism of Bill Buckley and his followers. It was and still is a lover’s quarrel with the Left. Put another way, it was the child admonishing the parent for not living up to the ideals the parent preached to their children.

To be fair, the Buckleyites borrowed some political objectives from traditional conservatives, along with some of the language of the Right, but it was essentially a Progressive heresy over the issue of communism. It’s why the Buckleyites had exactly zero wins in the culture war. They never bothered to fight it. Their singular reason to exist was opposition to communism, foreign and domestic. It’s why after the Cold War, they declared themselves Big Government Conservatives.
Just one man shocked their world. What will they do when there are not one, not one hundred, but 100,000 Breiviks taking action in the 4GW environment their actions have made inevitable?
Last weekend, a bunch of my students were waxing enthusiastic about the 4chan humiliation of Shia LaBeouf’s “He Will Not Divide Us” campaign. This barely made a ripple in the broader media, even in the traditional conservative media. But it was a major coup in the alt-Right media world, and my student knew about it within hours of it happening. The general consensus of my boys was “Do NOT mess with 4chan. They will wreck you for life.”

I was reminded of a recent post here about Islam being “the last bad-ass religion”. There’s nothing bad-ass about Christianity these days. I teach at a small Christian college that until just this year wouldn’t even let its faculty drink alcohol; I’m telling you now, there is no political action by a figure or organization on the old-style Christian Right, substantive or symbolic, that any of my students would care about — certainly not on the same level that they care about how 4chan is brilliantly messing with Shia LeBeouf. They know 4chan is a hot mess of racism and sexism; that came up in the conversation, without much push-back. But they just don’t care. The symbolic power of lowering that flag and raising a Trump hat was a shot in the arm in a way that anodyne calls for a more winsome Christian witness in the postmodern world can never be. I’ll take a 100-to-1 bet against ever hearing any of my students kibitzing passionately over the weekend about a David Brooks column, or a James K.A. Smith book. Or for that matter, a Rod Dreher book.
4chan's pranks are a precursor. It doesn't take a genius to conclude that their actions are unlikely to be limited to humiliating left-wing actors for long as the left gets increasingly violent and unhinged. People often get upset when I observe that by the time this is over in 100 years or so, there will very likely be statues honoring St. Anders erected all across Europe. They complain, correctly, that he is a murderer, a killer. That is most certainly true. But have a look at the statues in London, in Paris, in Rome, in Olso, in Madrid, and in Washington DC sometime. Many, if not most, you will observe, were erected in honor of men with blood on their hands.

Maybe their defeatist attitude is a direct result of their recognition of the predictable results of their longstanding strategy.

They expect to be vanquished. But as stated here often, they think losing while wrapped in (faux) moral superiority is better than embracing the catastrophic error that underpins their fame & fortune.

The more the leftists and cucks try to co-op or shutdown the alt-right, the stronger it gets. People naturally recognize strength and are beginning to gather around it.

I used.to think Dreher was a well-meaning, simple coward. But he's a fake who admires Russell Moore, and believes he shouldn't have been purged from the Southern Baptist leadership. The problem is, Moore's support of Egg McMuffin not only makes him uniquely politically incompetent, but also shows he is completely against his own people. To not realize this before the election is understandable, if a sign of naivete. To not realize it afterwards is disqualifying.

Dreher is right to fear the alt right. He's wrong to propose the Benedict Option, because fakes will be hunted, and purged. No amount of hiding or equivocation will help.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

I see nothing about a time to run and hide from the enemies of God rather than expending every effort in opposing them.

But he also acknowledges God, and in a sincere way.

It's still a battle, but I'm not tired of winning. That is why they needed the cucks, all we need to do to win is fight back hard.

His idea seems to be ''The BOHICA Option is about creating SJW-style 'safe zones' for Christianity'' but, as a commenter to this pointed out:
I've asked Rod Dreher many times how would Benedict option work against managerial state hellbent on destroying Christian morality but he has never responded to me with anything.
That's the problem with his ''BOHICA Option'', the Amish have a lot of things that keep them 'under the radar', such as their rejection of most 19th/20th/21st Century technology and their very rural/farm lifestyle. US Orthodox Jewish communities have a keep out/expel the goyim and run our area as we see fit (IOW, create a Israeli colony in the US).
The American Cuckservative has, to my knowledge, suggested any way to defend his ''BOHICA Option'' areas/communities from those who seek to loot/destroy them. There is no Con/Sen delegation to support them like the Orthodox Jewish areas, nor are they in rather isolated rural farming areas like the Amish, and like it or not, the Mormons pretty much dominate two US states (Utah and Nevada) and have enough clout to have got one of their own as a legitimate GOP nominee. Yeah, I know, but Romney made it to the Prez. Super Bowl, even if he was the Atlanta Falcons.

Well, of course the cucks didn't know anyone to their right was warning them -- paying attention to anyone on their right might have prompted badthink, and they couldn't risk that.

There might have been a time when it was possible to think the Benedict Option could work, that the left would let you go off and do your own thing as long as you promised to say nice things about them. That time has long since passed. Unless you have a magical invisibility shield like Galt's Gulch, they will find you and shut down that option, and you're going to have the choice between fight or surrender anyway.

At one point several agreed on was that the religious liberty of Muslims is just as important as the religious liberty of Christians.

Rod probably feels bad that Cruncy Cons didn't include any Muslims in the chapter about how Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants, and Jews can all get along as long as they accept the same propositions he does. How exclusionary of him!

And @Ron, there is no place where Christians can go to be left alone.

He spoke to me after my Benedict Option speech about the point I made in it re: pastors and religious leaders who aren’t preparing their congregations for hard times, even the possibility of persecution, are failing in their responsibilities. He said that’s true in his experience. We agreed that Christians in America aren’t going to know what hit them.

This amuses me. "Christians" should not really need their pastors to say this, Jesus said it just fine. In fact, that whole "THE WORLD WILL HATE YOU" is something I first read on this blog and thought "That doesn't jive with EVERY Christian I hear talking in my 'real life'."

When I started reading the NT, I was shocked by the reality of what was in it, as opposed to what I'd gleaned here and there.

The persecution of Christians is exactly what we get for following Jesus Christ. We will be attacked, savagely and repeatedly.

Hell, I fully expect it. Just as I expect Satan to take care of his own, supporting those that attack us. Feminists, Fags, Islamists, Jews, Communists... on one hand, it is funny how they all unite to attack us. But they all have Satan on their side and he stokes their hate.

But the bloodthirstiness of putting men, women and children on boats, floating them into the middle of the river and sinking them is absolutely possible.

This time, however, I think the Right will prevail because the Left will simply be bereft of products to redistribute.

You own what you can defend. This is not a new rule. It is so ancient that even a juvenile cockroach understands it.

You cannot defend the file assigned to you inside the banking system. The number in that file has no substance. It isn't money. It's just a game score that fluctuates with your state of game play. Its only value is the degree to which you can leverage it, inside of the game, for things you can defend outside of the game.

@14. You almost got it right. It's not a battle; it's a campaign theater in a war for our survival of which there are battles. FIFY. ;)

@37. Went to Mass at a different parish today. Priest during the homily mentioned how three Latinos who were 4th graders and won a robotics competition were yelled at and told to go home to Mexico. He said he was disgusted by hearing this and yet the same thing happened to the Italians, Poles, and Irish. He said that blacks, Latinos, and Muslims are today's Italians, Poles, and Irish. Well blacks have had 52 years of equality; Muslim want to conquer the world. White Mexicans don't like non white Mexicans. Northern Mexicans don't like southern Mexicans.

It just dawned on me that chucks are like Ellie Goulding in Outside. They say they'll be our strength and complain how they did everything right but now they're on the outside, etc.

What Dreher and the guys lamenting about Christianity's fallen state is that they're irrelevant. Whites are a minority birth rate wise in the states. Christianity once upon timed kicked Islam's ass. It looks like we'll have to do it again. Pray, fight, win.

Michael Heiser has a fascinating interpretation of the Gates of Hell. The text mentions it happened on a "high mountain" and the highest mountain in the mentioned region is Mount Hermon. It was a cult center of all kinds of unsavourable pagan worship practices, and was actually called "Gates of Hell" by the Jews of Jesus's time. It was seen as Satan's base of operations in the same way as Mount Zion was God's. So, the point of the scene is that Jesus went there to pick a fight with the forces of darkness. That the Church would eventually stand even on their headquarters.

The feckless, cowardly, and non-confrontational Dreher calls, naturally, for a feckless, cowardly, and non-confrontational approach he calls "the Benedict Option". The Christian Alt-Right, on the other hand, anticipates Revival, Repatriation, and Reconquista 2.0 throughout the West.

Indeed. The Christian Alt-Right branch must hold to the traditionalist principles of true Christendom--which includes confrontation with the enemy.

The Benedict Option concept has been around for a decade, if not longer. There are several Catholic communities just outside of the decaying city of Tulsa, where I live. It's okay for women and children, "the widows and orphans." We need strongholds, after all. But Christian men MUST be vigorous and confrontational.

Speaking of strongholds, E. Michael Jones wrote this book called Slaughter of Cities, which discusses intentional, secular political actions to break up Catholic strongholds and neighborhoods throughout America. This whole idea of importing Syrian refugees into your local neighborhood is merely an evolved extension of that 50+ year old policy.

Funny thing about the "Benedict option". A few short years ago, the same people saying that we should build monasteries and retreat from the world were calling me anti Catholic for hinting that is what the monasteries did.

The same ones who said "The Catholic church is the only one who stands against the musilms!" now, under the new Pope, say "If you don't invite muslims in you are antiCatholic."

I am reaching the point where I am starting to wonder if the KnowNothings of old had a point. A great many Catholics not only hate the USA, but want to destroy most of Western civilization in the hope that they can come out on top.

It's the cause, the search for a religion of the sword that is the salient fact. If Christianity does not offer it, it will be found elsewhere. Increasingly those who wish to oppose Islam, but find no allies in Christianity, are taking up the sword of Odin.

The fact that we would prefer a re-emboldened Christianity shouldn't blind us to the fact that others do not see that as an available option and are seeking, and finding, elsewhere.

Christianity has always been the heart of Western Civilization, so a careful study of how badly it got damaged is needed.

Which I certainly won't do in a single comment but I feel (*rather than think*) that it started with the invention of fiction in the 19th century. Fiction is actually pretty new stuff.

And carefully argued and constructed theological planks were swept away before it.

I never could understand what it is people saw in Buckley. And as I got older, I understood it less and less. Looking back on it all now, I see that he probably did more damage to the right than anyone else in the last hundred years.

He just never won anything. At all. And worse than that, it doesn't even look like he ever even tried to win anything.

At times I think he was really all about 'you can't lose if you throw the race'. In short, he never tried to win anything, so he would never suffer having lost at something.

Fiction is ancient. See The Arabian Nights. It became the dominant form of popular entertainment during the Middle Ages. See Romance.

What is new is the mass production and distribution of recorded fiction.

"Consider the image of the cherubic and rather harmless Guardian Angel. When did that start?"

The Renaissance. The same time Jesus started becoming a scrawny, weeping victim.

And Cherubs became cherubic. They used to be God's personal guard and shock troops.

How'd that whole "make a separate community" thing work out for the Branch Davidians?

Yep. Or, since the St. Benedict whose name Rod appropriated was an actual monk: ask the monks in England during the reign of Henry VIII. Living in actual monasteries, withdrawn from the world, wasn't much protection when the state took a dislike to them and wanted their considerable wealth. At least they didn't get gassed and burned to death, like the folks in Waco.

I already pretty much live the way Rod recommends, because that's how I grew up. We didn't have a fancy name for it; it's just how rural people without much money lived. But we don't pretend that it would afford any protection from the state, if the state took an interest in us. That's why Rod's option, whether he admits it or not, has to include surrender of any ground the left wants. If the left made it illegal to be conservative on the Internet, Rod would have to stop -- or they would come to his door, at which point his Benedict Option would be moot.

@71 I was just reading about the Knights Hospitaller and their control over Malta for several hundred years the other day. A small military order held territory for nearly 800 years, and there were never a lot of them.

Because of the propaganda about history, the concept of "Warrior-Monk" has been spun as a Chinese concept. It really never was, as the temples never got that involved. It's a Western Christian concept. When a local leader needed an army, off to the Monastery to see if they can rouse one up.

"I would like to discuss with you about the Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, right after I finish bash your head in."

I remember a discussion in a comments section on a different blog a number of years ago where a Woman said her son was disappointed to learn they don't do the Warrior-Priest thing anymore. (They are Roman Catholic.) Her son may end up not being so disappointed in the near future. Granted the first Catholic Military Orders to return will, more than likely, promptly remove the current Pope.

Vox:

You and your friends enjoyed piling on me yesterday, all in good fun. No harm was done, and since I myself had helped to provoke the spat, no one else is to blame. However, today I have a serious question.

Do you really regard people like me as the enemy?

I am a native-born American citizen almost exactly your age, a white non-Hispanic Catholic (I am aware that you disapprove, but bear with me), a veteran of the U.S. Army, married 20+ years, with six children (none adopted, all by the same wife), a professional engineer's license and a paid-off mortgage. That is, I am no one special, nor have I done anything of particular note during my life, but I am very middle American. I almost never talk politics outside my home in real life but, before the rise of the Alt Right, if I did talk politics, I would generally have been considered pretty hard Right.

From 1988 through 2016, my presidential votes have gone to Paul (Libertarian; I was young); Perot (independent); Dole (R); Buchanan (Reform); Bush (R); some nameless, right-wing, third-party candidate in lieu of the madman McCain (mistake; I should have voted Obama in lieu of the madman); Romney (R); Trump.

I believe that divorce should be mostly or wholly illegal; that society can hardly reduce the incidence of fornication by pressuring young men, but rather by pressuring young women and successful middle-aged married men; that immigration should be mostly halted; that post-WWII free trade has been a strategic error; that desegregation was probably a mistake; that lowering the voting age to 21 was a feckless act; that juries should probably include only males who are not black (judges too should be drawn from the same demographic); that many fewer women should attend college than do; that the Civil Rights act should be partly, mostly or wholly repealed; that intelligence is mainly genetic; that races differ substantially in character; that black-white miscegenation should probably never have been legalized; that the plight of South African whites in instructive (and merits our compassion); that Islam should be suppressed; that society should probably never have thrust the franchise upon the female sex; that all our wars since the Mexican war, excepting Korea and Vietnam, were probably mistakes; and so on.

On the other hand, I believe that wives should hold and control separate property; and that blacks (who, whether I like it or not, have inhabited North America longer than most whites) are and ought to remain our fellow countrymen, with secure property rights, recourse to the law, and all the liberty they as a race can peaceably handle.

In other words, I stand noticeably to the left of you and your friends, but well to the right of our new president. Indeed, society at large regards me to be so illiberal that my opinions lay far outside the orbit of sociable discourse.

When you aim your fire left, do you think it desirable to target me? At our age, neither of the two of us is likely to move the other very much (that is, I'm going to stay to your left), but so what?

I ask because, if possible, I prefer to know who my foes are. Others like me might prefer to know, too. As you know, I think your blog's superman act a little silly, but your blog also brings its good points. Indeed, I have occasionally lurked the blog for years and it had not, until yesterday, occurred to me that you might be a foe. Yet, maybe you are a foe, after all, if you say so. Please advise, if you wish.

You are not the enemy, but we have no use for you. You have no stomach for this fight, and for you to be among us would be a net negative to us.

Real Christians know that this lifetime is a battle of good versus evil, and we fight for keeps. We sang this is my Orthodox parish today:

Come, O ye faithful, let us worship that Wood whereby we have been deemed worthy to crush the heads of our invisible enemies. Come, all ye kindreds of the nations, with hymns let us honor the Cross of the Lord. Rejoice, O Cross, thou perfect redemption of fallen Adam. In thee do our most faithful sovereigns boast, since by thy power they have mightily subjected to themselves the Ishmaelite peoples. As we Christians now venerate thee with fear, we glorify God, Who was affixed to thee, and we say: O Lord, Who wast nailed to the Cross, have mercy on us, since Thou art good and the Lover of mankind.

Our fight is against the demons, but also against the Ishmaelites (i.e. Moslems), and by logical extension, all those who threaten us.

@76 The church has always been under attack, Paul wrote epistles contra judaizers, Arius, Pelagius, Albigensian, or even the Reformation and the further splits like paedo v.s. ana baptists, Calvin v.s. Luther, Wesley. Christendom has always had heretics. It was the 1930s where the Pope wrote Pascendi Dominici Gregis: On Modernism. That is less that 100 years old. Even Leo 13's Rerum Novarum condemned socialism.

Our enemy is eternal, and isn't yet chained or in Gehenna. He keeps changing forms, but it seems he's going back to creating witches instead of secularists.

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

No, it really isn't possible. Venerate the Cross as highly and perfectly as you can. Unless a person is delusional enough to think the Cross itself is God, then it is not possible to bless or honor it too much.

No offense, but I've found that many Protestants tend to have an extremely low understanding of what "worship" really is. They see people venerating crosses and think this is an act of idolatry. It's not. It's just that the honor we pay to the Cross is higher than the honor many people pay to God Himself. We honor the Cross highly, but it does not even approach idolatry, because our worship of God is far higher still.

The Alt Right has two primary problems that are really insurmountable when it comes to having any sway in American politics:

1. Not nearly enough Americans are hard core racists
2. The Alt Right has no viable economic vision.

No one is going to send back the millions of illegal immigrants, at least not enough to make any dent in the labor surplus. And the Alt Right seem to show no willingness to implement a more heavily progressive tax policy to help stem the wealth inequality. Add to that the turnoff of its hard racism and you have a path toward capturing 5 percent support.

That is the key problem. At some point there will be a binary decision to either cave and cuck, or to fight and do something ugly, violent, or unpleasant.

Consider some of the "blacks" are 75 IQ Somali Muslims with more than one wife and six kids who doesn't know english, can't understand the constitution and they may already be citizens if not on their way. They (the whole family) will either require something you would find tyrannical to stay, or they would have to leave.

This was even in Uncle Tom's Cabin where I think it was Topsy that just kept failing and saying "I'z bad".

If we stop going in and blowing up everything, Somalis will do far better in Somalia than here. They won't do well in a high trust (and high penalty for violation) society with relatively higher IQs.

Blacks were repressed, and there was little black on black crime and they didn't burn their neighborhoods. Black Lives Matter? What do they want?

Average church - 61%F 39%M - and that includes the husbands dragged there by their wives.
90% of young men who grow up in the church are gone by age 18-20.

But that people cannot idolize a cross...well, I know people who believe they will get in a car crash if their cross is not hanging safely from the mirror. Or the history of people in search of relics. Pastor Alistair Begg (said named pastor) is reacting to Catholic traditions and even refuses to call the place of worship a "sanctuary" (auditorium instead) because God does not dwell in a temple made by men anymore. Yep, a little on the fringe and I don't have any problem with calling it a sanctuary or having crosses but it is his prerogative to lead his sheep how he knows best.

I doubt that that number is zero, but if I gather your premise, public order does indeed precede liberty. Liberty cannot exist without public order, as far as I know, except under primitive conditions. Therefore, if there existed a people for whom the number in question were zero, then it is not clear to me that such a people could support any tolerable degree of liberty at all.

Regarding the Somalis, who are recent arrivals, I don't want them here as a group any more than you do. Americans should make substantial, strenuous efforts to decently repatriate as many of them as possible, as soon as possible. That's not likely to happen, of course, but it should happen—and, on some level, most of our countrymen know very well that it should happen.

They had a racial point that was misunderstood as a religious point. All British men, Anglo-Saxon and Norman alike, were far more Catholic than almost anyone alive today. The equation of British identity with Protestantism is historically absurd, it is literally #fakeenglishness ginned up by Henry the Tyrant so he could have a divorce. No devout Englishman for 900 years would have recognized the religion of Anglicanism, even at it's height, as his own.

The real cause of the trouble is the Irish immigrant hivemind. They have a death grip on the institutional structure of the Church in America (which they brag about some times, though never when one of the Church's terrible maladies is being discussed, it only ever comes out when they all want to celebrate football at Notre Dame and how gloriously middle class they've all become - like Jesus died on the Cross so they could send their kids to 2nd tier Jesuit colleges) and their diaspora culture of narcissistic self pity and ethnic chauvanism has effectively changed the Church in America into a white version of the spiritually moribund black churches where everything is about tribal loyalty and remembering one's grievances with The Others Over There, and not about Jesus and discipleship.

A great many Catholics not only hate the USA, but want to destroy most of Western civilization in the hope that they can come out on top.

This is pandemic among the middle class / formerly row-home working class ethnics who are trying to signal their status to the upper class they aspire to join. They'll do things like carp about the alleged evils of Creationism too - gotta show how "educated" you are, not like this hicks down in ughh, Texas. Keep in mind that they civilization they are destroying was literally built on their alleged religion. It's all about earthly motives and grubby little advantages.

The Alt Right has two primary problems that are really insurmountable when it comes to having any sway in American politics:

1. Not nearly enough Americans are hard core racists
2. The Alt Right has no viable economic vision.


Wrong....

Timing is everything and while those items appear to be a challenge now the tide has already turned. When the current market bubble and pension bubbles blow the artificial economic "prosperity" through massive debt expansion that has slowed people to politely ignore these structural problems in society will be gone.
When these bubbles burst, the economic restraint holding back both sides will rapidly dissappear and the conflict will escalate rapidly.
That kick off point may take 3 to 6 years, but for a number of reason that it my guess.
In the interim both sides, including the alt-right are building the foundations of the movement that will rapidly ignite when we hit the next phase.

Low church attendance, according to The Atlantic's Peter Beinart, is both correlated with blacks more discontented with injustice and prejudice, and whites who are more prejudiced and amoral.

How is "Hostility" to nonwhites defined operationally? One measure was the numerial rating of "warmth of feeling" respondents* entered into the keyboard.

Another indicator was the percentage of respondents* naming immigration among "one of the most important issues".

Here is a link to the questionaire which penetrated the depths of the moral and behavioral depravity of the Alt-right
http://www.electionstudies.org/studypages/anes_timeseries_2016/anes_timeseries_2016_qnaire_pre.pdf

(The settled science is buttressed by a Swedish academic, whose study was no doubt conducted with similar rigor.)

Beinhard floats two academic hypotheses which may account for the new ways in which right-wing "intolerance" manifests: Churchgoers' prejudice may be eroded by the Christian message of universal love may erode prejudice (A literally contradictory proposition). Another scholar proposes that, despite the racial segregation of Churches, "modest" contact with minorities remedies the ignorance which is presumably the wellspring of white bigotry.

No one is going to send back the millions of illegal immigrants, at least not enough to make any dent in the labor surplus. And the Alt Right seem to show no willingness to implement a more heavily progressive tax policy to help stem the wealth inequality. Add to that the turnoff of its hard racism and you have a path toward capturing 5 percent support.

Lift the blood-stained banner high,
And take the field for Jesus.

Refrain:
Storm the forts of darkness, bring them down, bring them down!
Storm the forts of darkness, bring them down, bring them down!
Pull down the devil’s kingdom,
Where’er he holds dominion,
Storm the forts of darkness, bring them down.
Glory, honor to the Lamb,
Praise and power to the Lamb;
Glory, honor, praise and power,
Be forever to the Lamb.

See the brazen hosts of hell,
Their art and pow’r employing;
More than human tongue can tell,
The blood-bought souls destroying.
Hark! from ruin’s ghastly road,
Victims groan beneath their load,
Forward, O ye sons of God,
And dare or die for Jesus.

Warriors of the risen King,
Great army of salvation,
Spread His fame, His praises sing,
And conquer every nation.
Raise the glorious standard higher,
Work for vict’ry, never tire;
Forward march with blood and fire,
And win the world for Jesus.

Howard J. Harrison wrote:Vox:

You and your friends enjoyed piling on me yesterday, all in good fun. No harm was done, and since I myself had helped to provoke the spat, no one else is to blame. However, today I have a serious question.

Do you really regard people like me as the enemy?

I am a native-born American citizen almost exactly your age, a white non-Hispanic Catholic (I am aware that you disapprove, but bear with me), a veteran of the U.S. Army, married 20+ years, with six children (none adopted, all by the same wife), a professional engineer's license and a paid-off mortgage. That is, I am no one special, nor have I done anything of particular note during my life, but I am very middle American. I almost never talk politics outside my home in real life but, before the rise of the Alt Right, if I did talk politics, I would generally have been considered pretty hard Right.

From 1988 through 2016, my presidential votes have gone to Paul (Libertarian; I was young); Perot (independent); Dole (R); Buchanan (Reform); Bush (R); some nameless, right-wing, third-party candidate in lieu of the madman McCain (mistake; I should have voted Obama in lieu of the madman); Romney (R); Trump.

I believe that divorce should be mostly or wholly illegal; that society can hardly reduce the incidence of fornication by pressuring young men, but rather by pressuring young women and successful middle-aged married men; that immigration should be mostly halted; that post-WWII free trade has been a strategic error; that desegregation was probably a mistake; that lowering the voting age to 21 was a feckless act; that juries should probably include only males who are not black (judges too should be drawn from the same demographic); that many fewer women should attend college than do; that the Civil Rights act should be partly, mostly or wholly repealed; that intelligence is mainly genetic; that races differ substantially in character; that black-white miscegenation should probably never have been legalized; that the plight of South African whites in instructive (and merits our compassion); that Islam should be suppressed; that society should probably never have thrust the franchise upon the female sex; that all our wars since the Mexican war, excepting Korea and Vietnam, were probably mistakes; and so on.

On the other hand, I believe that wives should hold and control separate property; and that blacks (who, whether I like it or not, have inhabited North America longer than most whites) are and ought to remain our fellow countrymen, with secure property rights, recourse to the law, and all the liberty they as a race can peaceably handle.

In other words, I stand noticeably to the left of you and your friends, but well to the right of our new president. Indeed, society at large regards me to be so illiberal that my opinions lay far outside the orbit of sociable discourse.

When you aim your fire left, do you think it desirable to target me? At our age, neither of the two of us is likely to move the other very much (that is, I'm going to stay to your left), but so what?

I ask because, if possible, I prefer to know who my foes are. Others like me might prefer to know, too. As you know, I think your blog's superman act a little silly, but your blog also brings its good points. Indeed, I have occasionally lurked the blog for years and it had not, until yesterday, occurred to me that you might be a foe. Yet, maybe you are a foe, after all, if you say so. Please advise, if you wish.

I have never seen a group of human beings mock hippies more outrageously than Gen Z. They'd put a Vox Boomer post to shame. Absolutely flipping hilarious!

Even the younger kids made fun of global warming.

One day I told the kids during a lesson (middle-school) how tired I was after a 3 hour argument with an atheist online. They burst out laughing, "What did you say? Come on tell us what you said, we need to know!" They really did want to know. The wanted to fight. BTW this was a religious school, with a mandatory religion class.

I told them atheist arguments are all pretty much the same (they knew I used to be an atheist) and gave them a basic TIA lesson.

Later I asked the religion teacher (millennial) if he taught apologetics. He didn't. He was too busy making fuzzy praise music montages. He used to share those montages at staff meetings, they were like spiritual Novocaine.
