Hillary Clinton and her affiliated media, such as The Economist (whose board includes Hillary’s great friend Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild), have gone to war against Pepe the Frog.

To be fair, the frog started it.

Still, why is the Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party doing this?

Is it because during Hillary’s bizarre “alt-right” speech, some guy in the crowd shouted out “Pepe?”

I dunno.

One possibility is that Hillary remains locked into an obsession with fundraising, even though she probably has vastly more money than she could need compared to Trump.

Last Friday, for example, even after Hillary was supposedly diagnosed with pneumonia, she harangued an LGBT fundraiser at 55 Wall Street in the grandiose former home of the New York Stock Exchange about how a quarter of American voters belong in a “basket of deplorables.” This followed Barbra Streisand singing a funny update of Stephen Sondheim’s “Send In the Clowns” about Trump’s dubious net worth:

Is he that rich?
Maybe he’s poor?
‘Til he reveals his returns
Who can be sure?

Tickets for this fundraiser ranged from $1,200 to $250,000, with the $1,200 ducats immediately selling out a month ahead of time. The well-heeled audience found Streisand’s lyrics about Trump’s doubtful wealth to be hilarious.

After physically collapsing 36 hours later on 9/11/16, Hillary had to beg off flying to Hollywood for two more fundraisers:

2nd UPDATE, 7:19 PM: Suffering from pneumonia, Hillary Clinton will not be coming to Hollywood for fundraisers at Seth MacFarlane and Barry Diller’s homes, her campaign said tonight. No word on when or if the deep-pocket September 13 events will be rescheduled.

Why was Hillary ruining her health still pursuing rich gay donors, when she had a huge fundraising lead stockpiled (e.g., Goldman Sachs banned employees from donating to Trump) when she could be appealing to ordinary voters?

A few reasons seem apparent:

- First, Hillary really, really likes money. She is pretty obsessive about it. Back in the 1980s when she was First Lady of Arkansas, she used to declare on her and Bill’s joint tax returns that they had donated all of Bill’s used underwear to charity, itemizing Bill’s briefs at $1 or $2 each. When I read this in The American Spectator decades ago, I tried to be scandalized, but I ended up thinking, “Wow, Hillary’s really thorough. I bet Chelsea will appreciate the ample size of the estate she is left. I hope our kids forgive their parents for not being so diligent.”

Smug Pepe

- Second, Trump’s strategy is to use Free Media, despite its fervent hostility to him, to get his message out to the nation. Hillary’s natural strategy would be to spend heavily on advertising and get-out-the-vote drives in crucial Electoral College states such as Pennsylvania to thwart Trump’s appeal to the nation.

- Third, Hillary is the rare candidate who draws bigger crowds at four figure fundraisers than at free rallies. She seems to give ordinary Americans the creeps. So it’s more fun for Hillary to preen before a packed house of rich gay Wall Streeters than in some half-full depressing high school gym somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

Moreover, Hillary’s message is more fine-tuned to appeal to rich gay Wall Streeters than to average voters:

“If we broke up the big banks tomorrow,” Mrs. Clinton asked the audience of black, white and Hispanic union members, “would that end racism? Would that end sexism? Would that end discrimination against the L.G.B.T. community?,” she said, using an abbreviation for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. “Would that make people feel more welcoming to immigrants overnight?”

So, then, what is the Democratic nominee’s jihad against the cartoon frog about?

President Harambe

(And will Hillary turn next against the dead gorilla?)

The Economist’s article “Pepe and the Stormtroopers” offers some clues:

That is why the term Alt (short for “alternative”) Right is misleading. Mr [Jared] Taylor—whom Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Centre, a watchdog, describes as the movement’s “intellectual leader”—says it represents an alternative to “egalitarian orthodoxy and to neutered ‘conservatives’.” That characterisation elevates a racist fixation into a coherent platform. And, if the Alt-Right is not a viable political right, nor, in the scope of American history, is it really an alternative. Rather it is the latest iteration in an old, poisonous strain of American thought, albeit with new enemies, such as Muslims, enlisted alongside the old ones.

“Fifty years ago these people were burning crosses,” says Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti-Defamation League, a venerable anti-racist group. “Today they’re burning up Twitter.”

The SPLC and the ADL, of course, are world class fundraisers.

Their specialty is terrifying affluent elderly Jews into fearing that, unless they write big checks, the New Czar’s Cossacks will be riding again.

Perhaps Hillary figures that Pepe the Frog, in all his baffling inscrutability, can horrify semi-senile rich people in Shaker Heights into a final paroxysm of donating to the Clinton campaign to stop the new pogroms?

    I have to concur that you should ditch that tactic. Colorblind rhetoric has never worked for conservatives and it never can due to immutable differences between races. The proper response to the viciously anti-white tribesman Greenblatt would be: "No, 50 years ago most of these people's *parents* were either

    I dunno, G and Andrew, "meaning they were Democrats" is pithy and sharp. It may leave rhetorical coins on the table, but in the the Age of the Tweet, short-and-sweet usually wins the skirmish.

    Her crappy campaign cannot spend it all. Much of this campaign war chest will be spent (contributed to) before the election and after the election on Hillary’s favorite Demo-crap candidates to make them indebted to her. So once she becomes President these Senators and Congress critters will vote her way and do other favors for her Royal Thighness. At least this is the plan.

    They don't have to spend money on kids. Gay men have higher IQ and like Scots-Irish they have a strong clannish loyalty. Lesbians are the most repulsive politicized group, perhaps motivated by their ugliness.

    The higher up society's pyramid you go, the higher the % homo. Think of all the gay designers, comedians, actors etc... This is unfortunate as gays tend to be diversity loving Narrative-pushers. One almost needs parantheses for them too.

    Unlike blacks, whose promotion owes much to the puppet-masters hostility to Core Americans, IME gay men do tend to be genuinely talented. Esp. in interpersonal affairs.

Even then, it was true that gays liked the fields of politics and civic affairs probably because they demand verbal fluency and sociability...and social climbing.
    , @unpc downunder
    There's no evidence that upper class people are more likely to be homosexual. Social science studies find that gay men make less money that straight guys are more likely to work in low paid female-dominated professions (nursing, hairdressing, retail etc). There is also no evidence that gay men have higher IQs than straight men.

    Most rich people tend to be right wing liberals - socially liberal and economically right wing, which is why they tend to be pro LGBT.

    Strange bedfellows indeed.

    Of course, money-obsessed Hillary Clinton – the thin edge of the wedge if there ever was one – represents a party which at core is blatantly leftist and redistributionist. Forget all the appeals to corporatism, Goldman Sachs, The Economist etc etc, the core belief of the Democrats is redistributionism, something which they will definitely do once they are firmly ensconced in power and unassailable. They are only keeping their powder dry at the moment.
    Redistributionism, of course, means a general levelling of incomes via taxation – the ‘Swedish’ model, before the Swedes in a fit of lefty lunacy blew it up with mass immigration. In actual fact ‘socialism’ and redistributionism effectively amount to the same thing.

    So now here we have the absurd spectacle of the cheerleaders-in-chief of exploitative capitalism, The Economist magazine, openly allying with their sworn enemies, in order to defuse an old style conservative, namely, Donald Trump.

    All bitter and twisted, ‘to clever by half, posturing and manoeuvering – to the point where bullshit baffles brains.

    This is nothing new for the Clintons.

    It was this initial strategy that the sociopathic political genius Bill Clinton came up with during his first term. He called it triangulation. Because he had zero ethics, Clinton was happy to tell his democratic supporters from the labor unions and poor blacks that he was on their side while repealing Glass-Steagall and passing NAFTA. Traditional bread and butter democrats were blind to be screwing he was giving them. In fact they still can't see it.

    Bill figured out the new duality. He could be a wave and a particle. He could call himself a Democrat and also take the money from the thieving uber capitalists. It drove the Republican corporatists nuts at the time because he was getting elected, getting all the money AND banging the interns!

    Either she will go out with a desperate bang or perhaps she is merely thinking long term. The Clintons do seem to be particularly gauche so maybe it is just about the money. On the other hand she seems indignant about not automatically being handed the oval office so we know she is obsessed with power so perhaps the Clintons really are real life Underwoods?

    Trump doesn't have to spend a lot on advertising because he's pushing a populist message: the wall, protectionism, law and order, no more wars. Hillary on the other hand is the candidate of the establishment, an employee of theirs. They didn't hire her to push a populist message. The establishment's own message is so unappealing on its merits that it needs a lot of advertising to have a chance at the polls.
  13. Make of it what you will but I came across a youtube video of Stefan Molyneux and Mike Cernovich (both just twitter personalities as far as I know). Mike Cernovich said a source of his contacted him and said that during a Hillary campaign meeting with a data analytics company, Hillary (or someone on the campaign) asked why her health narrative wasn’t taking hold with the general public (this was before she collapsed like the twin towers on 9/11). The data analytics people told her that the reason her health narrative wasn’t taking control was because social media, including blogs, was and still is tearing holes and offering a counter-narrative to the official one. So in response to this utter failure, she has since been publically attacking the “alt-right”, the online community of blogs, shit-posters and trolls that use memes to influence the election and counteract the multi-multi-billion dollar media industry.

    The data analytics company estimated the immediate audience of the alt-rightosphere to be 11 million but if the internet community can influence the national election just through a cartoon frog then you can bet that the actual audience is much larger. If you think about it, the big three evening news networks (NBC, CBS, ABC) have 7-8 million viewers for their national nightly news programs. Programs that air at a fixed time. They may all drive home the same message so you can estimate the TV news audience is 24 million each night. In contrast the internet has no fixed time, anybody can access it at anytime they want, so a message can get out a lot faster. Hillary’s data analytics company puts the alt-right audience at 11 million, 3 million more “viewers” than the most popular of the nightly news shows. Not only do they have a larger immediate audience but the immediate audience has their own immediate audience of friends and family. If we were conservative we can theorise that each person may have 9 people in their immediate circle who are attentive to what they post on facebook, twitter, instagram, blogs, reddits, chan boards, forums and whatever else there is.

    But the type of information is different between TV and internet. If someone sees something on the evening news and if they’re paying attention (not playing on their ipads or phones) then they might, just might, ask someone else, “Hey did you see what happened on the news?” Other person says, “No I didn’t watch it.” “Oh, okay then.” It’s an inherently passive form of media that requires the complete cooperation of its audience. Mass media has been so effective in disseminating propaganda because of the sheer size and coordination between the various corporate arms of the media-industrial complex.
    The internet manages to match and even surpass television’s reach. It’s likely in this day and age that nearly everyone in the first-world at least has access to a computer connected to the internet everyday. So from starting from that 11 million number, ideas read on blogs and twitter feeds get spread even further by a very receptive audience that actively seek out that message (as opposed to passively absorbing it from the TV) and actively spread GIFs, memes, images, short phrases and talking points (from tweets and elsewhere) and bounce it off other internet users and reach a media saturation that TV is fundamentally incapable of achieving. I personally think its this active nature of internet usage that allows ideas and narratives to have greater “penetration” than from MSM telecasts.

    So why is Hillary attacking a cartoon frog? The same reason Trump nails big media, they’re the enemy. Trump’s enemies are corporate think tanks, slimy newspaper writers and vacant-headed newscasters. Hillary’s enemies are internet shit-posters on chan image boards, bloggers that budget at Costco and active social media users that bounce memes and ideas off each other at a rate that leaves traditional media obsolete.

    Nicely done, but one quibble; no one watching the evening news is playing with their iPad or phone. If you see one of these programs, what will strike you is that every single commercial is for the types drugs or other products aimed at really old people like me. You know the type of commercial for a drug that treats degenerative diseases of age, and runs two minutes long because most of it consists of scenes of people happily playing with their grandchildren and riding in golf carts while the legal cover-your-ass voiceover rattles of an endless list of horrible potential side effects. If the drug industry collapsed tomorrow these news programs would disappear with it because the funding would dry up. I hope that doesn't happen because I'm probably not too far off from the day when I will need those commercials to help me pick out the best nursing home or brand of colostomy bag.

    The internet has lessened the ability of the left to do hit-and-run smears through the MSM which had become their favorite weapon. A perfect recent example of this was yesterday where black pastor in Flint attempted to become offended by the Donald so then to moralize and lecture him with the obvious implication that is was due to racism. The MSM was in on it and sprung into action making that the lead piece of the night on MSNBC, CNN, etc. By the time I got home to my TV, I had already read several articles about it and how the 'pastor' had used facebook to organize the take down and how she was buddies with Obama (pic included). On screen you have a breathless Lawrence O'Donnell shaking his head and acting all indignant and offended. I guess he does not have the internet.

    “Accusing the left of being the real racists is a ploy”: but I made no such accusation. I accused them of having been racists. Which is simply true, is it not? The Democrats were the party of segregation; the Republicans the party of Lincoln. Surely you know that much history.

    You don't get it. Nothing wrong with looking out for the interests of your group. If you use the term "racist" non-ironically you have already lost. I.e., Kaepernick is identifying as a black man (even though half something else and raised by whites) and looking out for his group's interests. Nothing wrong with that.

    The racist Democrats weren't on the left (apart from hating banks). They were in the South. Their political party wasn't particularly relevant to how they felt about blacks.

    That's a disingenuous argument, and we all know it. The demographics that comprised the "racist" Democratic Party are voting Republican today. As a rhetorical tool this argument is neither truthful nor effective.
    , @Epaminondas
    This is simply sophomoric. Lincoln's attitude to blacks was not different from that of Jefferson Davis or just about any other white person on the planet in 1860. Lincoln didn't want slavery abolished because it was good for blacks. He wanted slavery abolished because it was good for WHITES. Had Lincoln lived, you would have seen a serious effort to get as many blacks out of North America as possible. So stop with the anti-Southern bigotry. It's tiresome.

    Something is still rather puzzling about this behaviour. So far spending doesn't seem to have had much effect on Trump and this goes back to the primaries. Why then double down on raising money considering the already big lead in that department and no effective strategy of utilizing the money anyway?

    Either she will go out with a desperate bang or perhaps she is merely thinking long term. The Clintons do seem to be particularly gauche so maybe it is just about the money. On the other hand she seems indignant about not automatically being handed the oval office so we know she is obsessed with power so perhaps the Clintons really are real life Underwoods?

  29. >“Fifty years ago these people were burning crosses,” says (((Jonathan Greenblatt))) of the (((Anti-Defamation League))), a venerable anti-racist anti-White group.

    First of all, 50 years ago was 1966. I wasn’t around in ’66, maybe the Klan was really big then, but I somehow doubt it. I super-doubt that the Klan in ’66, even in the South, was as popular as the Alt-right is today. Not long from now, “50 years ago” will be referring to the 1970s and 80s. Are they going to keep trotting out this same line to imply wide scale cross burning during the Carter administration?

    Second of all, while I kind of think the argument form of “in X time, present day Y people would have been Z people” is a fallacy and should be rejected out of hand, in this case, his premises are wrong too. For starters, the alt-right is not particularly southern. More, 50 years ago, “these people” were integrated into the economy, and had decent paying jobs (uh oh) and (gasp) intact White families with (OY VEY) White children of their own. The “these people” of 1966 did White flight, for crying out loud. They didn’t even put up a fight. SJWs say White flight is itself racist, but it’s not exactly gas the dindus, race war now.

Sure, they would sometimes sit on a panel with housetrained Cuckservatives, but everyone there intuitively understood they had to stay within the left’s frame and could never point out the obvious composition of said panel.
    Suddenly, around the same time as the Trump campaign, those who opposed him were being publicly goofed on by a small army of people with mostly Pepe the Frog profile pictures and offensive racist/Nazi referencing names on Twitter. To these pampered media folks it looks coordinated and is an event of world historical importance…I do like channel surfing the major news networks throughout the evening and I noticed a lot of reporters were starting to vent on panels about the Nazi frogs with a lot of amusing arm waving. It’s obviously driving the media establishment nuts.

They are only keeping their powder dry at the moment.
    Redistributionism, of course, means a general levelling of incomes via taxation - the 'Swedish' model, before the Swedes in a fit of lefty lunacy blew it up with mass immigration. In actual fact 'socialism' and redistributionism effectively amount to the same thing.

    So now here we have the absurd spectacle of the cheerleaders-in-chief of exploitative capitalism, The Economist magazine, openly allying with their sworn enemies, in order to defuse an old style conservative, namely, Donald Trump.

    Exactly. In fact, the opposite is true. Bill and Hillary are closet Republicans! They are sleeper candidates who were groomed by right-leaning Jewish backers to take over and subvert the traditional mission of the pro-Labor, pro-Union Democratic Party.

    Bill's support for NAFTA, his rescinding the barrier between investment and commercial banks, his loosening restrictions on derivative investments--these aren't the behavior of a Democratic politician.

    Does the monied establishment offer Rhodes scholarships that foster study at prestigious foreign Universities to left-wing bomb throwing radicals intent upon overthrowing the power of the State? Hardly. Didn't some fellow student note that Bill Clinton kept himself on the fringes of the confrontations and demonstrations on campus and that he had a reputation as an informer.

    Actually, I don't think "we" have been "working together" for the past 50 years. The general tenor has been "us" doing for "them" because of the past.

    You will notice that one thing that Trump does not do. While he criticizes unfettered immigration, and illegal immigrants, and Muslims (for their propensity to terrorism), he does not criticize anyone who is here: white, black, Christian, Jew, straight, gay, whatever. He doesn't single out any group for special criticism, and he doesn't single out any group for special praise. I think that's the way to do it.

    On the other hand, the Democrats -- and they've been doing this since forever -- only talk about their goals in terms of someone to blame. And that "someone" is invariably white, straight, male -- but never the rich ones, just the garden variety type.

    I think the Democratic approach is divisive and Trump's approach -- regardless of what one may think of any one of the groups itemized -- is the only way to approach it.

My family lived in north Tulsa at the time, a few blocks south of Tulsa’s black community. After seeing on TV the black insurrections in other parts of the country, Dad bought a surplus Lee-Enfield .303 rifle and a Llama snub-nosed .38 special revolver to protect the family.

    Fortunately Tulsa’s blacks behaved themselves in those years. The black elders probably took the younger hotheads aside and told them not to antagonize a city full of armed rednecks like my father, many of them World War II and Korea veterans with firearms training and war experience. The older blacks remembered what happened the last time whites attacked Tulsa’s black community in 1920, and they didn’t want a repeat of that.

    Make of it what you will but I came across a youtube video of Stefan Molyneux and Mike Cernovich (both just twitter personalities as far as I know). Mike Cernovich said a source of his contacted him and said that during a Hillary campaign meeting with a data analytics company, Hillary (or someone on the campaign) asked why her health narrative wasn't taking hold with the general public (this was before she collapsed like the twin towers on 9/11). The data analytics people told her that the reason her health narrative wasn't taking control was because social media, including blogs, was and still is tearing holes and offering a counter-narrative to the official one. So in response to this utter failure, she has since been publically attacking the "alt-right", the online community of blogs, shit-posters and trolls that use memes to influence the election and counteract the multi-multi-billion dollar media industry.

    The data analytics company estimated the immediate audience of the alt-rightosphere to be 11 million but if the internet community can influence the national election just through a cartoon frog then you can bet that the actual audience is much larger. If you think about it, the big three evening news networks (NBC, CBS, ABC) have 7-8 million viewers for their national nightly news programs. Programs that air at a fixed time. They may all drive home the same message so you can estimate the TV news audience is 24 million each night. In contrast the internet has no fixed time, anybody can access it at anytime they want, so a message can get out a lot faster. Hillary's data analytics company puts the alt-right audience at 11 million, 3 million more "viewers" than the most popular of the nightly news shows. Not only do they have a larger immediate audience but the immediate audience has their own immediate audience of friends and family. If we were conservative we can theorise that each person may have 9 people in their immediate circle who are attentive to what they post on facebook, twitter, instagram, blogs, reddits, chan boards, forums and whatever else there is.

    But the type of information is different between TV and internet. If someone sees something on the evening news and if they're paying attention (not playing on their ipads or phones) then they might, just might, ask someone else, "Hey did you see what happened on the news?" Other person says, "No I didn't watch it." "Oh, okay then." It's an inherently passive form of media that requires the complete cooperation of its audience. Mass media has been so effective in disseminating propaganda because of the sheer size and coordination between the various corporate arms of the media-industrial complex.
    The internet manages to match and even surpass television's reach. It's likely in this day and age that nearly everyone in the first-world at least has access to a computer connected to the internet everyday. So from starting from that 11 million number, ideas read on blogs and twitter feeds get spread even further by a very receptive audience that actively seek out that message (as opposed to passively absorbing it from the TV) and actively spread GIFs, memes, images, short phrases and talking points (from tweets and elsewhere) and bounce it off other internet users and reach a media saturation that TV is fundamentally incapable of achieving. I personally think its this active nature of internet usage that allows ideas and narratives to have greater "penetration" than from MSM telecasts.

    So why is Hillary attacking a cartoon frog? The same reason Trump nails big media, they're the enemy. Trump's enemies are corporate think tanks, slimy newspaper writers and vacant-headed newscasters. Hillary's enemies are internet shit-posters on chan image boards, bloggers that budget at Costco and active social media users that bounce memes and ideas off each other at a rate that leaves traditional media obsolete.

    Nicely done, but one quibble; no one watching the evening news is playing with their iPad or phone. If you see one of these programs, what will strike you is that every single commercial is for the types drugs or other products aimed at really old people like me. You know the type of commercial for a drug that treats degenerative diseases of age, and runs two minutes long because most of it consists of scenes of people happily playing with their grandchildren and riding in golf carts while the legal cover-your-ass voiceover rattles of an endless list of horrible potential side effects. If the drug industry collapsed tomorrow these news programs would disappear with it because the funding would dry up. I hope that doesn’t happen because I’m probably not too far off from the day when I will need those commercials to help me pick out the best nursing home or brand of colostomy bag.

    1. On Hillary doing so much fundraising now, near the end: what happens to the losing candidates’ war chest if they lose? I assume they don’t have to give it back, so do they get to keep it? I recall hearing in the post-2000 election chatter that Al Gore was perfectly positioned to challenge W. again in 2004 with his “war chest” from 2000. Or am I misremembering?

    If Hillary gets to keep her fundraising even if she loses….well, she could just be expecting to lose and just running up the numbers so she gets a bigger payday. That fits in with her money-grubbing persona.

    Alternatively, she’s pretty sickly, and doesn’t do well in front of negative/hostile crowds, and doesn’t like to answer press queries. A bunch of fundraisers now allow her to (1) have the press controlled/eliminated; (2) have an enthusiastic, fawning crowd, boosting her fragile ego; and (3) reduce the chances that her sickliness will be commented on. But also allows her to claim she’s not sickly because she’s out working.

    Finally, Hillary’s plan is probably to flood the market with TV ads, which can be edited to make her look strong. She’s horrendous live. If she does debate Trump (oh please yes!), she’s going to need an awful lot of TV ads to cover up her massive fail there.

    2. Her embrace of attacking Pepe and pushing the Colin Powell Hates Trump line is to make everyone forget her collapse on Sunday and her sickliness. She’s hoping that by next week any more questions about her health will be dubbed “already answered/old news” (classic CLintonian delay tactic come to fruition) and “conspiracy theory” again.

    She’s so panicked about it she’s willing to attack a cartoon frog. Think about it. Can you smell the Trumpocalypse?

    Also, forgot to add, there is a youth/coolness factor to influence. The Left have long held most of Hollweird and the Corporate Media in their backpocket, giving them the advantage in coolness to young people.

    But Pepe is a symbol of the coolness/hipness of the Alt-Right. The Alt-Right makes memes that are edgy and funny. Richard Spencer and Milo are both young dudes whose antics and memes come across as youthful and fresh, not old and stodgy. Roosh is young. Matt Forney is youner. Gavin McInnes is the oldest of the bunch, and he looks baby-faced.

    The jokes and memes they tell are line-crossing, but in a scampish, young, did-I-do-that way, not an old man racist way. It’s Bob Hope in the 1940s versus Bob Hope in the 1980s.

    As Steve said, the Alt-Right is like Punk Rock. But it’s important to note that the Alt-Right is like Punk Rock when Punk Rock was new, fresh, young, and cool–the late 70s/early 80s.

    Make of it what you will but I came across a youtube video of Stefan Molyneux and Mike Cernovich (both just twitter personalities as far as I know). Mike Cernovich said a source of his contacted him and said that during a Hillary campaign meeting with a data analytics company, Hillary (or someone on the campaign) asked why her health narrative wasn't taking hold with the general public (this was before she collapsed like the twin towers on 9/11). The data analytics people told her that the reason her health narrative wasn't taking control was because social media, including blogs, was and still is tearing holes and offering a counter-narrative to the official one. So in response to this utter failure, she has since been publically attacking the "alt-right", the online community of blogs, shit-posters and trolls that use memes to influence the election and counteract the multi-multi-billion dollar media industry.

    The data analytics company estimated the immediate audience of the alt-rightosphere to be 11 million but if the internet community can influence the national election just through a cartoon frog then you can bet that the actual audience is much larger. If you think about it, the big three evening news networks (NBC, CBS, ABC) have 7-8 million viewers for their national nightly news programs. Programs that air at a fixed time. They may all drive home the same message so you can estimate the TV news audience is 24 million each night. In contrast the internet has no fixed time, anybody can access it at anytime they want, so a message can get out a lot faster. Hillary's data analytics company puts the alt-right audience at 11 million, 3 million more "viewers" than the most popular of the nightly news shows. Not only do they have a larger immediate audience but the immediate audience has their own immediate audience of friends and family. If we were conservative we can theorise that each person may have 9 people in their immediate circle who are attentive to what they post on facebook, twitter, instagram, blogs, reddits, chan boards, forums and whatever else there is.

    But the type of information is different between TV and internet. If someone sees something on the evening news and if they're paying attention (not playing on their ipads or phones) then they might, just might, ask someone else, "Hey did you see what happened on the news?" Other person says, "No I didn't watch it." "Oh, okay then." It's an inherently passive form of media that requires the complete cooperation of its audience. Mass media has been so effective in disseminating propaganda because of the sheer size and coordination between the various corporate arms of the media-industrial complex.
    The internet manages to match and even surpass television's reach. It's likely in this day and age that nearly everyone in the first-world at least has access to a computer connected to the internet everyday. So from starting from that 11 million number, ideas read on blogs and twitter feeds get spread even further by a very receptive audience that actively seek out that message (as opposed to passively absorbing it from the TV) and actively spread GIFs, memes, images, short phrases and talking points (from tweets and elsewhere) and bounce it off other internet users and reach a media saturation that TV is fundamentally incapable of achieving. I personally think its this active nature of internet usage that allows ideas and narratives to have greater "penetration" than from MSM telecasts.

    So why is Hillary attacking a cartoon frog? The same reason Trump nails big media, they're the enemy. Trump's enemies are corporate think tanks, slimy newspaper writers and vacant-headed newscasters. Hillary's enemies are internet shit-posters on chan image boards, bloggers that budget at Costco and active social media users that bounce memes and ideas off each other at a rate that leaves traditional media obsolete.

    The internet has lessened the ability of the left to do hit-and-run smears through the MSM which had become their favorite weapon. A perfect recent example of this was yesterday where black pastor in Flint attempted to become offended by the Donald so then to moralize and lecture him with the obvious implication that is was due to racism. The MSM was in on it and sprung into action making that the lead piece of the night on MSNBC, CNN, etc. By the time I got home to my TV, I had already read several articles about it and how the ‘pastor’ had used facebook to organize the take down and how she was buddies with Obama (pic included). On screen you have a breathless Lawrence O’Donnell shaking his head and acting all indignant and offended. I guess he does not have the internet.

    I think the Dems and the Economist and so on misread the reality. The fact of the matter is that the US is a very live and let live kind of society, and most of what the MSM and the political left generate in terms of "social problems" is BS. That doesn't mean that there aren't problems -- obviously -- but the way to address them is to work together, not by targeting some segment -- here, and always, white people, especially white males -- as "the enemy."

    I would say that, plus the lack of concern for the reality of a distinct American Nation is the #2 concern of the alt-right. The #1 concern is just the unbelievable manufactured phoniness of the Grievance Industry and sanctimony of Political Correctness, which means, "we all know what the reality is but under penalty of law we won't say it." The Alt-right says it and enjoys making fun of the Establishment, nowadays largely leftoid.

    So why does Hillary want to go to war with the Alt-right? Because it is making fun of her and everything phony and contrived and full of it that she represents.

    I expect any day now that there will be a street confrontation between some white guy wearing a Pepe t-shirt and a POC, who believes everything the MSM tells him. The state of South Carolina will ban any images of Pepe from the grounds of the State Capitol. Germany, always ahead of us in terms of stifling self-expression, will add Pepe to their list of banned images, viewable only in an educational context in a museum.

    “One of the bizarre things about the American right is how -even in 2016!- you still get people coming out to say the Clintons or the Democrats are secretly socialists of communists.”

    Exactly. In fact, the opposite is true. Bill and Hillary are closet Republicans! They are sleeper candidates who were groomed by right-leaning Jewish backers to take over and subvert the traditional mission of the pro-Labor, pro-Union Democratic Party.

    Bill’s support for NAFTA, his rescinding the barrier between investment and commercial banks, his loosening restrictions on derivative investments–these aren’t the behavior of a Democratic politician.

    Does the monied establishment offer Rhodes scholarships that foster study at prestigious foreign Universities to left-wing bomb throwing radicals intent upon overthrowing the power of the State? Hardly. Didn’t some fellow student note that Bill Clinton kept himself on the fringes of the confrontations and demonstrations on campus and that he had a reputation as an informer.

    >“Fifty years ago these people were burning crosses,” says (((Jonathan Greenblatt))) of the (((Anti-Defamation League))), a venerable anti-racist anti-White group.

    First of all, 50 years ago was 1966. I wasn't around in '66, maybe the Klan was really big then, but I somehow doubt it. I super-doubt that the Klan in '66, even in the South, was as popular as the Alt-right is today. Not long from now, "50 years ago" will be referring to the 1970s and 80s. Are they going to keep trotting out this same line to imply wide scale cross burning during the Carter administration?

    Second of all, while I kind of think the argument form of "in X time, present day Y people would have been Z people" is a fallacy and should be rejected out of hand, in this case, his premises are wrong too. For starters, the alt-right is not particularly southern. More, 50 years ago, "these people" were integrated into the economy, and had decent paying jobs (uh oh) and (gasp) intact White families with (OY VEY) White children of their own. The "these people" of 1966 did White flight, for crying out loud. They didn't even put up a fight. SJWs say White flight is itself racist, but it's not exactly gas the dindus, race war now.

    Either she will go out with a desperate bang or perhaps she is merely thinking long term. The Clintons do seem to be particularly gauche so maybe it is just about the money. On the other hand she seems indignant about not automatically being handed the oval office so we know she is obsessed with power so perhaps the Clintons really are real life Underwoods?

    Strange bedfellows indeed.

    Of course, money-obsessed Hillary Clinton - the thin edge of the wedge if there ever was one - represents a party which at core is blatantly leftist and redistributionist. Forget all the appeals to corporatism, Goldman Sachs, The Economist etc etc, the core belief of the Democrats is redistributionism, something which they will definitely do once they are firmly ensconced in power and unassailable. They are only keeping their powder dry at the moment.
    Redistributionism, of course, means a general levelling of incomes via taxation - the 'Swedish' model, before the Swedes in a fit of lefty lunacy blew it up with mass immigration. In actual fact 'socialism' and redistributionism effectively amount to the same thing.

    So now here we have the absurd spectacle of the cheerleaders-in-chief of exploitative capitalism, The Economist magazine, openly allying with their sworn enemies, in order to defuse an old style conservative, namely, Donald Trump.

    All bitter and twisted, 'to clever by half, posturing and manoeuvering - to the point where bullshit baffles brains.
    Reminiscent of the 1938 Nazi-Soviet Pact.

    …the core belief of the Democrats is redistributionism, something which they will definitely do once they are firmly ensconced in power…

    If by redistribution you mean from the poor to the rich, I completely agree.

    Redistributionism, of course, means a general leveling of incomes via taxation…

    Comrade, this is not 1890 and you’ve read too much Marx. In the 21st century redistribution means taking from the middle class and giving to the permanently poor underclass, while doing everything to make the rich even richer. Get on with the program.

    That’s been evident to me for a long time; but this week in particular, Taranto’s “Best of the Web” columns seem to be drawing heavily from the posts (and comments) here. The title of Thursday’s instalment, “Regression to the Meme,” is about as perfect a distillation of Sailerian wit as we’re likely to see in a mainstream publication.

    The subject of that column? Pepe the Frog.

He's a natural aristocrat, yet freely mixes with and doesn't put down the plebs like some other candidates for the title of leader I could mention. He isn't a self-appointed leader, he's /the/, main, /acting leader/. We on the alt-right are lucky to have him.

    That's a disingenuous argument, and we all know it. The demographics that comprised the "racist" Democratic Party are voting Republican today. As a rhetorical tool this argument is neither truthful nor effective.

    Based on metrics such as interracial violence or crime, I would have to say the Democrats are the “racist” party. You cannot really measure a chip on someones shoulder but if you could I suspect it would correlate pretty neatly with aggressiveness, both politics and criminality.

    Actually, I don’t think “we” have been “working together” for the past 50 years. The general tenor has been “us” doing for “them” because of the past.

He doesn’t single out any group for special criticism, and he doesn’t single out any group for special praise. I think that’s the way to do it.

    On the other hand, the Democrats — and they’ve been doing this since forever — only talk about their goals in terms of someone to blame. And that “someone” is invariably white, straight, male — but never the rich ones, just the garden variety type.

    Not simply the plot, but the actual backstory of its production:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_(1983_miniseries)#Origins

    Inspired by Sinclair Lewis' anti-fascist novel It Can't Happen Here (1935), director–producer Kenneth Johnson wrote an adaptation titled Storm Warnings, in 1982. The script was presented to NBC for production as a television mini-series, but the NBC executives rejected the initial version, claiming it was too "cerebral" for the average American viewer. To make the script more marketable, the American fascists were re-cast as man-eating extraterrestrials, taking the story into the realm of science fiction to capitalize on the popularity of science-fiction franchises such as Star Wars. V, which cost $13 million ($31,000,000 today) to make,[1] premiered on May 1, 1983.[2][3]

    2.) Our world is tribal.

    3.) Our tribe is being suppressed. The new left doctrine of racial struggle in favor of non-whites only, a product of decolonization and the defeat of nationalists by egalitarians after WWII, must be repudiated and Whites must be allowed to take their own side in their affairs. A value system that says Whites are not allowed to have collective interests and literally every other identity group can do so and ought to do so is unacceptable.

    Yep

    4.) Men are not women and women are not men.

    6.) If we must be a democratic society, the franchise should be limited.

    Of course, money-obsessed Hillary Clinton - the thin edge of the wedge if there ever was one - represents a party which at core is blatantly leftist and redistributionist. Forget all the appeals to corporatism, Goldman Sachs, The Economist etc etc, the core belief of the Democrats is redistributionism, something which they will definitely do once they are firmly ensconced in power and unassailable. They are only keeping their powder dry at the moment.
    Redistributionism, of course, means a general levelling of incomes via taxation - the 'Swedish' model, before the Swedes in a fit of lefty lunacy blew it up with mass immigration. In actual fact 'socialism' and redistributionism effectively amount to the same thing.

    So now here we have the absurd spectacle of the cheerleaders-in-chief of exploitative capitalism, The Economist magazine, openly allying with their sworn enemies, in order to defuse an old style conservative, namely, Donald Trump.

    This is nothing new for the Clintons.

    It was this initial strategy that the sociopathic political genius Bill Clinton came up with during his first term. He called it triangulation. Because he had zero ethics, Clinton was happy to tell his democratic supporters from the labor unions and poor blacks that he was on their side while repealing Glass-Steagall and passing NAFTA. Traditional bread and butter democrats were blind to be screwing he was giving them. In fact they still can’t see it.

    Bill figured out the new duality. He could be a wave and a particle. He could call himself a Democrat and also take the money from the thieving uber capitalists. It drove the Republican corporatists nuts at the time because he was getting elected, getting all the money AND banging the interns!

    Make of it what you will but I came across a youtube video of Stefan Molyneux and Mike Cernovich (both just twitter personalities as far as I know). Mike Cernovich said a source of his contacted him and said that during a Hillary campaign meeting with a data analytics company, Hillary (or someone on the campaign) asked why her health narrative wasn't taking hold with the general public (this was before she collapsed like the twin towers on 9/11). The data analytics people told her that the reason her health narrative wasn't taking control was because social media, including blogs, was and still is tearing holes and offering a counter-narrative to the official one. So in response to this utter failure, she has since been publically attacking the "alt-right", the online community of blogs, shit-posters and trolls that use memes to influence the election and counteract the multi-multi-billion dollar media industry.

    The data analytics company estimated the immediate audience of the alt-rightosphere to be 11 million but if the internet community can influence the national election just through a cartoon frog then you can bet that the actual audience is much larger. If you think about it, the big three evening news networks (NBC, CBS, ABC) have 7-8 million viewers for their national nightly news programs. Programs that air at a fixed time. They may all drive home the same message so you can estimate the TV news audience is 24 million each night. In contrast the internet has no fixed time, anybody can access it at anytime they want, so a message can get out a lot faster. Hillary's data analytics company puts the alt-right audience at 11 million, 3 million more "viewers" than the most popular of the nightly news shows. Not only do they have a larger immediate audience but the immediate audience has their own immediate audience of friends and family. If we were conservative we can theorise that each person may have 9 people in their immediate circle who are attentive to what they post on facebook, twitter, instagram, blogs, reddits, chan boards, forums and whatever else there is.

    But the type of information is different between TV and internet. If someone sees something on the evening news and if they're paying attention (not playing on their ipads or phones) then they might, just might, ask someone else, "Hey did you see what happened on the news?" Other person says, "No I didn't watch it." "Oh, okay then." It's an inherently passive form of media that requires the complete cooperation of its audience. Mass media has been so effective in disseminating propaganda because of the sheer size and coordination between the various corporate arms of the media-industrial complex.
    The internet manages to match and even surpass television's reach. It's likely in this day and age that nearly everyone in the first-world at least has access to a computer connected to the internet everyday. So from starting from that 11 million number, ideas read on blogs and twitter feeds get spread even further by a very receptive audience that actively seek out that message (as opposed to passively absorbing it from the TV) and actively spread GIFs, memes, images, short phrases and talking points (from tweets and elsewhere) and bounce it off other internet users and reach a media saturation that TV is fundamentally incapable of achieving. I personally think its this active nature of internet usage that allows ideas and narratives to have greater "penetration" than from MSM telecasts.

    So why is Hillary attacking a cartoon frog? The same reason Trump nails big media, they're the enemy. Trump's enemies are corporate think tanks, slimy newspaper writers and vacant-headed newscasters. Hillary's enemies are internet shit-posters on chan image boards, bloggers that budget at Costco and active social media users that bounce memes and ideas off each other at a rate that leaves traditional media obsolete.

    Except that the money that will be fleeced through exorbitant taxation won’t come out of Madame’s pockets or the pockets of the Wall Street tycoons to whom she is beholden.

    First of all, 50 years ago was 1966. I wasn't around in '66, maybe the Klan was really big then, but I somehow doubt it. I super-doubt that the Klan in '66, even in the South, was as popular as the Alt-right is today. Not long from now, "50 years ago" will be referring to the 1970s and 80s. Are they going to keep trotting out this same line to imply wide scale cross burning during the Carter administration?

    Second of all, while I kind of think the argument form of "in X time, present day Y people would have been Z people" is a fallacy and should be rejected out of hand, in this case, his premises are wrong too. For starters, the alt-right is not particularly southern. More, 50 years ago, "these people" were integrated into the economy, and had decent paying jobs (uh oh) and (gasp) intact White families with (OY VEY) White children of their own. The "these people" of 1966 did White flight, for crying out loud. They didn't even put up a fight. SJWs say White flight is itself racist, but it's not exactly gas the dindus, race war now.

    I WAS around in ’66. And the KKK was in the process of dying even then. It’s a measure of how out of touch these SJWs are when they dredge up an organization that for all intents and purposes is non-existent.

    Something is still rather puzzling about this behaviour. So far spending doesn't seem to have had much effect on Trump and this goes back to the primaries. Why then double down on raising money considering the already big lead in that department and no effective strategy of utilizing the money anyway?

    Either she will go out with a desperate bang or perhaps she is merely thinking long term. The Clintons do seem to be particularly gauche so maybe it is just about the money. On the other hand she seems indignant about not automatically being handed the oval office so we know she is obsessed with power so perhaps the Clintons really are real life Underwoods?

    Trump doesn’t have to spend a lot on advertising because he’s pushing a populist message: the wall, protectionism, law and order, no more wars. Hillary on the other hand is the candidate of the establishment, an employee of theirs. They didn’t hire her to push a populist message. The establishment’s own message is so unappealing on its merits that it needs a lot of advertising to have a chance at the polls.

    Seth McFarlane is gay?

    I really doubt it. Not many people who go to Art School are closeted homosexuals, he does not look like one, and Family Guy’s humor seems pretty heterosexual to me.

    Interesting fact about him:

    he arrived at Logan International Airport about ten minutes too late to board the flight as the gates had been closed. Fifteen minutes after departure, American Airlines Flight 11 was hijacked, and at 8:46 a.m. it was flown into the North Tower of the World Trade Center, killing everyone on board.

    Here's a list of 7 core Alt-Right beliefs. Let's see how I do:

    1.) People are different. Human inequality is a fact of life and belief systems that deny this lead to distortion and oppression. Both individuals and populations vary in their characteristics in meaningful ways, such as intelligence and social behavior. One size does not fit all, not comfortably at least.
     
    Yep

    2.) Our world is tribal.
     
    Yep

    3.) Our tribe is being suppressed. The new left doctrine of racial struggle in favor of non-whites only, a product of decolonization and the defeat of nationalists by egalitarians after WWII, must be repudiated and Whites must be allowed to take their own side in their affairs. A value system that says Whites are not allowed to have collective interests and literally every other identity group can do so and ought to do so is unacceptable.

     

    Yep

    4.) Men are not women and women are not men.
     
    Yep

    5.) Freedom is a responsibility and not a right.
     
    Yep

    6.) If we must be a democratic society, the franchise should be limited.

     

    Yep

    The final alt-right sh[**]-test is whether or not someone agrees with the reality that Jewish elites are opposed to our entire program.
     
    Yep

    Guess this means that I'm Alt-Right

    This is nothing new for the Clintons.

    It was this initial strategy that the sociopathic political genius Bill Clinton came up with during his first term. He called it triangulation. Because he had zero ethics, Clinton was happy to tell his democratic supporters from the labor unions and poor blacks that he was on their side while repealing Glass-Steagall and passing NAFTA. Traditional bread and butter democrats were blind to be screwing he was giving them. In fact they still can't see it.

    Bill figured out the new duality. He could be a wave and a particle. He could call himself a Democrat and also take the money from the thieving uber capitalists. It drove the Republican corporatists nuts at the time because he was getting elected, getting all the money AND banging the interns!

    And Obama has done exactly the same thing. Complains about Wall Street but refused to prosecute the banksters. Talks about income inequality but encouraged a flood of cheap labor. Talks about out-sourcing but has done nothing to remove to incentives for it. Talks a left-wing game, but promotes trade deals for the 0.001-percenters.

    The way I heard it, it doesn't apply to all employees, just partners. Of course, who at Goldman is going to be donating most of the campaign contributions - receptionists, or partners?

    The way they do it is by saying that their partners shall not be allowed to contribute to any ticket that has a state or local office-holder on it. You see, it's only to prevent influence peddling; Goldman Sachs cares deeply about promoting civic virtue and good, honest government.

    Of course, it just so happens that Mike Pence is a sitting governor, so Trump's campaign falls under this exclusion. Tim Kaine is a sitting US Senator, so the Clinton campaign does not.

    Bill's support for NAFTA, his rescinding the barrier between investment and commercial banks, his loosening restrictions on derivative investments--these aren't the behavior of a Democratic politician.

    Does the monied establishment offer Rhodes scholarships that foster study at prestigious foreign Universities to left-wing bomb throwing radicals intent upon overthrowing the power of the State? Hardly. Didn't some fellow student note that Bill Clinton kept himself on the fringes of the confrontations and demonstrations on campus and that he had a reputation as an informer.

    This is simply sophomoric. Lincoln’s attitude to blacks was not different from that of Jefferson Davis or just about any other white person on the planet in 1860. Lincoln didn’t want slavery abolished because it was good for blacks. He wanted slavery abolished because it was good for WHITES. Had Lincoln lived, you would have seen a serious effort to get as many blacks out of North America as possible. So stop with the anti-Southern bigotry. It’s tiresome.

    >“Fifty years ago these people were burning crosses,” says (((Jonathan Greenblatt))) of the (((Anti-Defamation League))), a venerable anti-racist anti-White group.

    First of all, 50 years ago was 1966. I wasn't around in '66, maybe the Klan was really big then, but I somehow doubt it. I super-doubt that the Klan in '66, even in the South, was as popular as the Alt-right is today. Not long from now, "50 years ago" will be referring to the 1970s and 80s. Are they going to keep trotting out this same line to imply wide scale cross burning during the Carter administration?

    Second of all, while I kind of think the argument form of "in X time, present day Y people would have been Z people" is a fallacy and should be rejected out of hand, in this case, his premises are wrong too. For starters, the alt-right is not particularly southern. More, 50 years ago, "these people" were integrated into the economy, and had decent paying jobs (uh oh) and (gasp) intact White families with (OY VEY) White children of their own. The "these people" of 1966 did White flight, for crying out loud. They didn't even put up a fight. SJWs say White flight is itself racist, but it's not exactly gas the dindus, race war now.

    ADL was founded to defend a man convicted of rape and murder of a 12 year old shiksa. His Caucasian hair was all over her. ADL claimed a black man did it.

    But not a curl of African hair was found on her. The rapist murderer Leo Frank was well known for groping and harassing the 10 to 16 year old girls who worked in his factory

    Yet ADL tale of the innocent Leo Frank is still the conventional wisdom today.

    They didn’t have DNA then, but they had eyes and microscopes and could tell Caucasian hair from African hair.

    No sane society can afford uncloseted and powerful homosexuals. It's unfortunate it has come to pass and hopefully reversible.
    As for gay "marriage", what can I say except I was disappointed that most so-called conservatives didn't oppose it, nay, kept mum when this travesty came about.

    Anal intercourse is no longer illegal. The homosexuals' desire to make a travesty of marriage can, however, be resisted without decent people losing any sleep over it. And make no mistake about it, striking at the institution of marrage and the grotesque practice of homosexuals having or adopting children are actions of indecent people.
    , @BB753
    As far as I know, the right for a dude to marry another dude is not a basic or civic right. It's sheer madness and degeneracy.
    Today, homosexuals can legally live together and have sex and be open about their condition. You can't discriminate against them or fire them or even criticize their way of life. What more could they hope for? They also wanted g-marriage and rub our noses in it.
    In asking to get married and adopting kids they've pushed their luck too far.

    They don't have to spend money on kids. Gay men have higher IQ and like Scots-Irish they have a strong clannish loyalty. Lesbians are the most repulsive politicized group, perhaps motivated by their ugliness.

    The higher up society's pyramid you go, the higher the % homo. Think of all the gay designers, comedians, actors etc... This is unfortunate as gays tend to be diversity loving Narrative-pushers. One almost needs parantheses for them too.

    Unlike blacks, whose promotion owes much to the puppet-masters hostility to Core Americans, IME gay men do tend to be genuinely talented. Esp. in interpersonal affairs.

    “”Goldman Sachs banned employees from donating to Trump””

    “How is that even legal? How can they even control that?”

    The way I heard it, it doesn’t apply to all employees, just partners. Of course, who at Goldman is going to be donating most of the campaign contributions – receptionists, or partners?

    The way they do it is by saying that their partners shall not be allowed to contribute to any ticket that has a state or local office-holder on it. You see, it’s only to prevent influence peddling; Goldman Sachs cares deeply about promoting civic virtue and good, honest government.

    Of course, it just so happens that Mike Pence is a sitting governor, so Trump’s campaign falls under this exclusion. Tim Kaine is a sitting US Senator, so the Clinton campaign does not.

    This Pepe thing is starting to sound like the plot of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_(1983_miniseries)

    Not simply the plot, but the actual backstory of its production:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_(1983_miniseries)#Origins

    Inspired by Sinclair Lewis’ anti-fascist novel It Can’t Happen Here (1935), director–producer Kenneth Johnson wrote an adaptation titled Storm Warnings, in 1982. The script was presented to NBC for production as a television mini-series, but the NBC executives rejected the initial version, claiming it was too “cerebral” for the average American viewer. To make the script more marketable, the American fascists were re-cast as man-eating extraterrestrials, taking the story into the realm of science fiction to capitalize on the popularity of science-fiction franchises such as Star Wars. V, which cost $13 million ($31,000,000 today) to make,[1] premiered on May 1, 1983.[2][3]

    I think the Dems and the Economist and so on misread the reality. The fact of the matter is that the US is a very live and let live kind of society, and most of what the MSM and the political left generate in terms of "social problems" is BS. That doesn't mean that there aren't problems -- obviously -- but the way to address them is to work together, not by targeting some segment -- here, and always, white people, especially white males -- as "the enemy."

    I would say that, plus the lack of concern for the reality of a distinct American Nation is the #2 concern of the alt-right. The #1 concern is just the unbelievable manufactured phoniness of the Grievance Industry and sanctimony of Political Correctness, which means, "we all know what the reality is but under penalty of law we won't say it." The Alt-right says it and enjoys making fun of the Establishment, nowadays largely leftoid.

    So why does Hillary want to go to war with the Alt-right? Because it is making fun of her and everything phony and contrived and full of it that she represents.

    I expect any day now that there will be a street confrontation between some white guy wearing a Pepe t-shirt and a POC, who believes everything the MSM tells him. The state of South Carolina will ban any images of Pepe from the grounds of the State Capitol. Germany, always ahead of us in terms of stifling self-expression, will add Pepe to their list of banned images, viewable only in an educational context in a museum.

    Get ready for the war against the "Axis of Mockery."

    Gays, eunuchs, transsexuals etc appear to have always played a role in the administration and governance of empires. The court jester did more than just frolic about. It is not random that there has been a concentration of pedophiles in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. I believe they bring a unique skill set and disposition to the courts of kings, salons and other informal political structures that makes them effective and useful to those in power. Imagine someone with the strong social abilities that women often have coupled with the competitive political drive typical of the alpha male. It is a great combination for politics and intrigue. I would guess that gays in particular would more frequently have this combination of skill sets. Perhaps Hillary also presents an atypical combination of these traits, and that is why there is so much speculation about her preferences as well.

    There is an interesting comparison of the presence of sexually deviant political actors and their roles in both Roman and Chinese empires.

    Now look at the username of this Redditor asking how to strip the name of a “VERY VIP” from email archives.

    “Hello all- I may be facing a very interesting situation where I need to strip out a VIP’s (VERY VIP) email address from a bunch of archived email that I have both in a live Exchange mailbox, as well as a PST file. Basically, they don’t want the VIP’s email address exposed to anyone, and want to be able to either strip out or replace the email address in the to/from fields in all of the emails we want to send out.”

    ""Goldman Sachs banned employees from donating to Trump""

    "How is that even legal? How can they even control that?"

    The way I heard it, it doesn't apply to all employees, just partners. Of course, who at Goldman is going to be donating most of the campaign contributions - receptionists, or partners?

    The way they do it is by saying that their partners shall not be allowed to contribute to any ticket that has a state or local office-holder on it. You see, it's only to prevent influence peddling; Goldman Sachs cares deeply about promoting civic virtue and good, honest government.

    Of course, it just so happens that Mike Pence is a sitting governor, so Trump's campaign falls under this exclusion. Tim Kaine is a sitting US Senator, so the Clinton campaign does not.

    GS hasn’t been a partnership for decades.

    Why do common sense reflections against ” gay marriage” get banned systematically?
    Is that a Ron Uz policy for some unfathomable reason?

    He trolls them here, he trolls them there,
    He trolls those normies everywhere.
    Is he the master, or is he a cog?
    That damned elusive Pepe Frog.

    So much I do not understand about that frog.

    Was he an invention of the shitlibs, their oh-so-snarky way to tweak our innate boobishness, only to have it snatched away and brandished in their faces everywhere as a reminder that he who croaks last croaks best?

    Was he cooked up in the meth labs of the, uhh, Alt-Right (sorry – every time I type that, my mind’s eye sees Alanis Morrisette’s beard stubble in uncomfortable close-up) as the cartoon mascot of Trump’s Fourth Reich? Frankly, I dunno about this one – it requires the cartoon dementia of campus mediocrities demanding ‘safe spaces’ from imaginary villains to reflect reality in some way; Magic 8-Ball signs point to ‘no’ here.

    Or can Pepe best be explained as, well, it’s atrociously drawn and yet it was everywhere on earth within two weeks’ time, and now every tiresome pinko pundit is extra-careful to salt their copy with plenty of “Pepe” references, so-o-o.………..it’s most likely the work of two irritating weird kids who were dickin’ around on grandad’s old Etch-a-Sketch one day, that surprisingly took on a odd life of its own…… once the irritating weird kids who produce the world’s media got ahold of it.

    "I don’t say non-whites don’t vote for her and her gibs, I just say I’ve never heard any non-white express much enthusiasm about it, no “coolest white woman in the world”. They’ll vote for her–if they remember to vote, but they don’t want to attend her lame rallies."

    All of Crooked Hildabeast's lame rallies that I have seen on television look extremely racially diverse. So they do love to attend her lame rallies.

    Her rally attendees are paid to be there. It’s about $20/hour plus per diem.

    Get friendly with your local Dem operatives and you could be hired too. Unless you’re a white man.

The major media overlooked Communist spies and Madoff’s fraud. What are they missing today?
Are elite university admissions based on meritocracy and diversity as claimed?
The “war hero” candidate buried information about POWs left behind in Vietnam.
The evidence is clear — but often ignored
