When I was working on my Jonestown series, it occurred to me that the internet might facilitate cults of unprecedented proportions, that rather than 1,000 people committing mass suicide, it could be millions. It’s increasingly clear that that’s exactly what the trans movement is. Image
It bears every hallmark of a cult: isolates from former relationships, demands total identity transformation, irreversible acts to display one’s commitment, intolerance of heresy, severe penalties for leaving the group… It’s not suicide, but removal of genitals is one step away.
It seems clear at this point that gender dysphoria is contagious in the same way Tourette’s has been observed spreading to young girls via Tik Tok. More experienced members initiate new acolytes - look up what they mean by “cracking the egg” for more on that.
I think I’m right about this, and that a Jonestown-style cult has infiltrated all major media corporations, the education system, and has even cowed most politicians.
Oh, here’s the podcast series by the way. This is the trailer, the link is in the description.

This is a list of science/engineering achievements, but also a description of capital flows. The way to make big $ in the 2000s was through finance and tech, and too many of our best brains were wasted creating CDOs and dick pic apps.
Add in that labor & regulatory arbitrage provided industry w/an easy way to drive up the bottom line without the risky business of innovation, and you get what we have now, secular stagnation or whatever.

In the most recent MartyrMade Substack essay on slavery and the leadup to the Civil War, I describe some of the bizarre practices of societies encountered by Europeans during the Age of Exploration, to try to put the European response in perspective.

J.G Frazer, in his book, The Golden Bough, summarizes an Aztec ritual dedicated to the Maize Goddess, Chicomecohuatl. A young girl was chosen to play the role of the goddess, and was paraded around town to be worshipped by the people. Then came the festival's climax: Image
The conquistadores were hard men, accustomed to violence, but what they found in Mexico shook them to their core. Image

How ethnic cleansing works in practice

After the ‘93 Oslo Accords made it increasingly difficult to legally establish settlements in the West Bank, settlers began to employ increasingly sophisticated means to work around Israeli law.

This is Antenna Hill in the West Bank: Image
Settlements continued to expand, with right wing Israeli politicians helping to to skirt Israel’s own laws. Despite being there illegally, the govt decided it was necessary to construct a cell phone tower on a nearby hilltop to fill a blind spot at a bend on the highway.
It was determined to be a security need, since it was unacceptable that Israelis might be caught in a bad situation w/o cell service. The hilltop, owned by Palestinian farmers, was seized and connected to the grid and water supply to facilitate construction.

GOP primary rant. RDS & other supporters of Not Trump, this is for you.

In 2004-12, Bush, McCain, and Romney each got ~60 million votes. That’s what the GOP was stuck at until Trump came along. In 2020, Trump got 14 MILLION more votes than any other GOP candidate in history. I’ve yet to hear the “Trump can’t win” crowd explain how their guy is going to beat every GOP candidate in history by more than 14 million votes.

I get the impression that they know their guy can’t match that number, and their argument is that they don’t need to beat it because RDS or whoever won’t drive Democrat turnout the way Trump does. It essentially boils down to their guy being more palatable to the enemy, which is not going to be an effective argument in a polarized environment. What drove turnout for Biden was Democrats using COVID to scam the mail-in ballot system. That’s a much more plausible explanation for Biden getting 16 million more votes than Hillary, despite not campaigning, than that Trump drove Biden’s turnout. Imo this is obviously true, and people claiming otherwise are either disingenuous or seeing what they want to see.

Personally, I don’t think there’s a chance in hell Biden would’ve even reached Hillary’s total in a regular election where people had to get off their asses on Election Day. After the pussy tape and all the rest of Trump’s antics before the 2016 election, everyone who was going to hate him already hated him. He didn’t have a swarm of new haters in 2020 - he added 11 million votes to his 2016 total. The idea that Trump gained 11 million votes, but then on top of that another 16 million people who didn’t hate him in 2016 had just seen enough in the intervening years to come out of the woodwork… seems patently absurd. I think the regime knows, or at least us afraid, that they can’t get Biden more than Trump’s 74 million 2020 votes without cheating, and that’s why they’re prosecuting him.

For RDS & co supporters, a real question: Why do you think your guy can do more than 14 million votes better than every non-Trump Republican in history? Especially when so many of you don’t seem to care about alienating Trump’s base? Saying that MAGA people are idiotic cultist low-class trash, but by the way please vote for my guy after we axe Trump is, I regret to inform you, not a winning strategy.
Then what does it matter? If Biden gets 81 million votes again then it doesn’t matter who the GOP candidate is.
The argument that Trump’s behavior since 2020 has alienated moderates is cancelled out by the fact that Biden’s administration has been a very-public disaster, and he’s literally falling asleep in TV interviews.

This, like Jen’s please clap moment, is something you couldn’t really imagine Trump doing. Trump is never self-evaluating when he speaks (sometimes to his detriment), never second-guesses himself. If he feels like smiling, he smiles, scowling, he scowls. It can be obnoxious, but…
Jeb’s name is so retarded that autocorrect keeps changing it to Jen no matter how many times I try.
Look at him. Just like his rambling stream of consciousness interviews, his emotions manifest on his face as soon as they form.

Let’s live tweet the GOP primary debate. THREAD.

Ron DeSantis has a very tough job. After the 2020 election shenanigans and the unprecedented institutional abuse against Trump and his supporters, Trump voters see their guy as the incumbent, and they see RDS’s candidacy as a selfish outside disruptor trying to primary the incumbent before a tough election. Maybe that’s not fair, but that’s how it is.

He has to do several things to be successful, and even if he does them all perfectly it may not be enough. His policies aren’t much in question, and he’d be wasting his time on the mic touting them. GOP primary debate watchers know he’s good on policy. It would be nice to see him firm up an anti-intervention stance on Ukraine, but otherwise his time will be better spent elsewhere.

I was just in a Space where @JackPosobiec made an important point: there is only one candidate the regime hates and fears enough to throw out every norm and standard to defeat, and that’s Trump. I’ve seen RDS supporters ask a good question: If Trump couldn’t stop them from rigging the election in 2020, when he was President, how’s he going to do it now? A fair question, but a good (if somewhat evasive) answer is that, at this late hour, what’s the point of nominating anyone the regime won’t pull out all the stops to defeat?

RDS has to thread a difficult needle. He has to condemn the unprecedented abuse of the system against Trump (Christie might be his best foil here), but every time the subject comes up it hardens support for Trump with his base. If he tries to frame himself as Not Trump, he has no chance; he has to make the make case that he’ll be a better Trump than Trump himself. GOP voters aren’t looking for a President, they’re looking for a war general, and RDS has to convince those people that he’s going to burn Washington DC to the ground.
I don’t think his personality would allow for it, but Trump should say something like: “Look, I know a lot of you guys don’t like me. And to be honest, I get it. I know I can be obnoxious. I’m not a typical politician, and my style can be off-putting, and I get it. But this is bigger than me.” And go from there.
RDS is coming more aggressive than usual, feels a little unnatural, but it’s good overall.

Vivek wasted no time calling down the fury of Lord Shiva on his enemies. He’s the one bringing the entertainment, and Trump taught us that that should not be underestimated.
