Karl Nemmersdorf's article on Fay Stender, radical attorney who spearheaded prison rights movement in the 70s, is relevant to the current madness. Stender was seriously wounded by a former inmate. "A few radicals began to suspect the truth about convicts.

Fay's shooting highlighted the hypocrisy in the radical community. Almost all of them now supported the police and district attorney and wanted the shooter prosecuted, even though they had “spent their professional lives denouncing the criminal justice system as an instrument
of racial and class oppression and defending accused criminals as social victims.” The hypocrisy reached a greater poignancy when a former colleague of Fay’s, a member of the Prison Law Project, appeared on the shooter’s defense team, stating later, “I was just seething at the
way the White Left reacted to Brooks’ arrest. It was racist. They had never taken this attitude . . . in the past. . . . And yet, when one of their own was shot, they immediately cooperated with the cops.”
After Stender's suicide, David Horowitz, former editor of Ramparts,he was struck by how few Blacks attended the funeral. Another radical in attendance observed, “no matter what you do, if you are White, it doesn’t matter if you spent your whole life working for Blacks.”

"Across three Anglophone countries, a significant portion of academics discriminate against conservatives in hiring, promotion, grants and publications. Over 4 in 10 US and Canadian academics would not hire a Trump supporter, and 1 in 3 British academics would not hire a Brexit
"Gender-critical feminist scholars appear to experience even more discrimination than conservatives. Only 28% of American and Canadian academics would feel comfortable having lunch with someone who opposes the idea of transwomen accessing women’s shelters."
However: "Younger academics & PhD students, especially in US, are significantly more willing than older academics to support dismissing controversial scholars from their posts, indicating that the problem of progressive authoritarianism is likely to get worse in the coming years.

Andrew Joyce read Robin DiAngelo's White Fragility so you don't have to.
“White Fragility” is an indictment and insult levelled at White progressives who are merely frozen by fear of racism accusations and White guilt. White Fragility is a horrifying

call for Whites not simply to be paralyzed by White guilt, but to become active participants in their decline, and willing accomplices in their political and demographic destruction.
DiAngelo has contempt for people White progressives because they place all their energies into grandstanding instead of helping in the transfer of real power and wealth. I have contempt for them because they place all their energies into grandstanding for short-term personal

There is an incredibly powerful moral tsunami that is sweeping America, like the moral crusade that led to the Civil War. Another example of American Millenarianism rooted in our Puritan tradition and now exploited by our hostile elite.
Very difficult to withstand in the face
of massive media coverage. Imagine the ostracism a player would get if he didn't bend the knee--unheard of last year in MLB. Suburban White folks are conforming to this social pressure & the moral tsunami may well result in a landslide victory for the left in November.
The only thing I see possibly preventing this is if those who oppose this tsunami keep emphasizing the violence that is occurring in urban America. In 1968 Nixon got elected on a law and order platform in the context of the riots while the left was still preaching moral idealism.

Roberta Kaplan, lead counsel for plaintiffs in C-ville cases, illustrating the logic of figures discussed in Culture of Critique: "Maybe we’re in Germany in the early 1930s; there are certainly parallels—but we now have the ability to do something about
it. As a very, very proud Jew, I believe very strongly that we need to fight back—not in the streets, not using violence—but fight back using the courts…My Judaism influences every single thing I do all day long.
"At this point, Milo’s intent is clear [in his approval of Fuentes]: hijack nationalist sentiments away to steer them away from racial & class consciousness, directing them instead towards a pro-Israel, pro-Catholic, anti-Islam, anti-family “groyper nationalism.”

The 1980s: When the financialization of the economy really took off, and with it outsourcing, free trade, etc.--the consequence of the rise of our new elite, and it's no coincidence that at the same time paleocons were displaced from the Reagan administration in favor of neocons.
"our political economy has been driven by investment banks, hedge funds, private equity firms, real estate developers, insurance goliaths, and a whole menagerie of ancillary enterprises that service them. But high times in FIRE land have depended on the downward mobility of
working people and the poor, cut adrift from more secure industrial havens and increasingly from the lifelines of public support. They have been living instead in the “pit of austerity.”

@NewRightAmerica @The_Anti_Burger I hate to find disagreements among people who essentially agree on all the important issues. I didn't believe the accusations against Kavanaugh at all--clearly politically motivated. So, without believing all women (absurd), it's certainly reasonable to believe some women.
@NewRightAmerica @The_Anti_Burger And part of evolved male psychology includes sexual coercion--if you can get away with it. Rape is very widespread during wars and I see no reason why a powerful person like Weinstein should be believed when so many women testified against him & "everyone in Hollywood knew."
@NewRightAmerica @The_Anti_Burger Sister of a friend of my wife is a well-known Hollywood actress. She recounted an episode where Weinstein invited himself to her apartment in NYC in the middle of the night, only avoiding the situation by getting her boyfriend to come there before W got there. She didn't testify.
