"The gods in Ithavoll meet together, of the terrible girdler of earth they talk, and the mighty past they call to mind, and the ancient runes of the Ruler of Gods."

The Destruction of Language

The term racism belongs to a class of expressions whose purpose is to be a conduit for social hegemony, rather than to convey meaning. Indeed, as the language is larded with similar totalitarian patois and circumlocutions for verboten ideas, it becomes increasingly difficult to express an unapproved thought, or, what's more, to think in ways that do not lead to self-contradiction. It is, as Orwell wrote, the objective of linguistic manipulation to make unauthorized thought impossible, since there are no terms in which to express it.

Democratic Party Disarray

The coalition of anti-Israel rank-and-file progressives and the Israel-supporting Jewish donor class, while one of necessity in the past, may break apart as the left is forced to reinvent itself in light of its late electoral collapse. The new synthesis on which these forces converge is likely to be a co-opting of the socialist Left-Populism that Senator Bernie Sanders had hoped to harness in his ill-fated Presidential election bid (if a genuine bid it was, rather than a demographic feint).

In this makeover, the face of the Democratic Party will become younger, as the party seeks relevance to millennials, many of whom no longer feel any sympathy with the post-war international liberal consensus. A doubling-down on the historic wager that the coalition of the fringes will hold, and that the Trump phenomenon is an anomaly would be a serious miscalculation. While the Trump victory certainly represents a paroxysm of antipathy to liberal elitism, it also expresses an eruption of white identity politics that have found cover in the liberalization of what passes for political discourse in the U.S., made possible by Trump's highly unconventional campaign rhetoric. His outré communication tactics, aided by a social media end run around mainstream outlets, created a crack in the glacial ice of illiberal progressive narrative dominance, through which escaped tacit white identity politics under cover of civic nationalism. This presents a decisive and historic shift in the political landscape, which has eluded no one, not even tone deaf and overconfident progressive elites, who, I'm happy to report, see their formerly unassailable triumphalism now in shambles.

The more perspicacious Democratic Party strategists sense this tectonic movement, which is why what I'll call the "legacy coalition" candidate for DNC Chair, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), has limited support among party power brokers. Ellison's Muslim religious commitments and his public ties to radical Muslim and Black Supremacist Louis Farrakhan pose a challenge for a party that was abandoned by the white working class during the most recent election. This is due in part to the party having neglected their interests for decades, and demanded acquiescence in their own demographic demise. It seems silly now that Democrats anticipated that the white working class would "go gentle into that good night." That is an arrogance which begs for retribution from the political gods. It turns out that an identity politics that alienates a key constituency is a losing strategy. Conversely, Democrats are discovering that whites can play the identity game as well, and make it look like good old fashioned American "fair play."

Those Democrats who treat the Trump effect as a temporary phenomenon would do well to note that arch nemesis Breitbart now has a man in the West Wing and Trump is auditioning goldbugs for Treasury. These occurrences aren't accidental, and the repercussions from the Big Shift Right are only beginning to be felt. When your own house organ is jumping off your bandwagon, you have some reevaluation ahead.

Multiculturalism Survives in an Atmosphere of Mammon Worship

When your reigning ethos is secular economism, "culture" seems like kitsch, a silly frivolity, and cultural fungibility is made plausible.

Confederation, not Federation: Patrick Henry Against the Federal Constitution.

I wonder whether Brooke Allen considered Mr. Henry a "Founding Father?" Could the first chapter of our Federal history be titled "Jacobin Gentry betray a Christian Nation?"

Creating the Infra-human

The hunger for destruction bred by intentional deprivation doesn't merely attach to property, but to all facets of the "good life" that the White Christian Tradition brings. Rather than breeding indifference to the elements of Tradition, such as close knit family life, progressivism engenders hostility toward them.

It cannot be lost on its cynical merchants that progressivism is merely the means by which psychosis becomes a normal condition of human existence, transforming its subjects into social weapons. The purpose of progressivism is not, as we have been told, to deliver spoils to the disenfranchised; it is to create rabidity in men that can be loosed on the enemies of their masters, who do not believe the leftist campfire stories by which the corp is initiated in hatred and blood. When the infra-human has been blooded, he is then fit only for a single purpose.

In being deprived of what is truly human, the progressives learns a withering hatred of what is human, while lisping love of humanity. He seeks to supplant it with what is infra-human -with what is familiar to him by long habituation. The presence of goodness and of fitness is noxious to him, intolerable. Hostility and envy are not two sides of a coin, they are the same side of the same coin.

Apologies for the White Guys...CBS Justifies White Male Leading Roles

When an entire elite/intelligentsia of a country is hostile to the natural leaders of the native born population... it's like living in exile, only in the country of one's birth. This is what it feels like to be a conquered people. Conquered without a shot ever having been fired. It might be unparalleled in human history.
