This would make a good Monty Python sketch in which Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin get frozen for 100 years and then come back to life in the Current Year and set to work Defeating Capitalism and Building Socialism … only to discover that today’s socialists have different priorities.

And at the end of this second video, the poor he/him accidentally uses “trump” as a verb and triggers himself:

  10. Marx, Engels and many of the early Bolsheviks invested the effort into cultivating themselves with Western art, music and literature. Even the less well educated Stalin made the time for a prodigious amount of reading when he got into power, based on the notes he penciled in the volumes of his personal library. They had an implicitly “white” idea of what the mind of the New Man they wanted to create would contain, given the population of functional, productive, working-class people they had to work with.

    So, yes, I think it would shock them to realize that the heirs of the movement they started have disavowed the working class in favor of the world’s losers, misfits, weirdos, outcasts, predators, defectives, morons and the generally ineducable, basically what Marxist theory calls the lumpenproletariat.

    The logic of the equality religion leads to a lowering of standards. If you can’t become better than anyone else, even in theory, then why bother to bathe, take care of your teeth, eat a healthy diet, stay fit and at a healthy weight, groom and dress yourself presentably and so forth?

    By contrast, the hierarchical model of society presents a vision of human potential, and it rewards the individuals who invest the effort to try to reach this potential.

    I find it hilarious that social-justice warriors and their Antifa allies allegedly show the proper way for humans to live, but so many of them just look unhealthy or otherwise off-putting. Traditionalist whites could do better in their personal optics themselves, but at least they acknowledge that a standard for superiority exists and makes sense, even if they don’t live up to it.

  21. Anon7 says:

    The Left doesn’t care about any of these people. They care about power. The Left envies and despises the successful people, the people who worked hard and excelled, and of course the popular, confident extroverts you see at the top of most hierarchies.

    I met committed union Leftists when I worked at a unionized job putting myself through school. They’d stumble through some Marx, they’d talk about the worker’s struggle and whatever ordinary people wanted to hear, but as soon as the revolution came, it would all be about getting even. You could see the visceral hatred they had, and the belief that they had a kind of back door to power. Scary.

    ‘The Rookie’ Co-Star Afton Williamson Claims She Quit ABC Series Over Racism & Sexual Misconduct On Set

    https://deadline.com/2019/08/the-rookie-co-star-afton-williamson-quits-abc-series-claims-for-racism-sexual-misconduct-on-set-1202660733/

    A black female actress is a victim of intersectional abuse: racism and sexual misconduct by the hair department:

    The Rookie series regular Afton Williamson, who played John Nolan’s (Nathan Fillion) training officer Talia Bishop, will not be returning for Season 2. In an Instagram post published early Sunday, Williamson alleges that she quit the ABC series because of systematic racism/racially charged comments, bullying, and sexual harassment, which remained largely ignored by the producers of the show until the sexual harassment by the head of the hair department escalated to sexual assault at the wrap party and the person was fired.

    She claims that she had reported inappropriate behavior by the hair department and a recurring guest star to executive producer/showrunner Alexi Hawley but her claims were not investigated, and the recurring guest star was allowed to continue, leading to her decision to leave the show, produced by Entertainment One and ABC Studios. Williamson’s allegations are now being investigated.

    “… racist commentary and bullying from the hair department head escalated int sexual assault at our wrap party … The hair department head was fired only after the sexual assault and not for an entire year of outward racism and racially charged lanaguage and bullying behavior in and out of the hair and makeup trailer …”

    View this post on Instagram

    I will not be returning for Season 2 of The Rookie. I owe it to you my amazing fans to share the Truth. Throughout the filming of the pilot, I experienced Racial Discrimination/Racially Charged inappropriate comments from the hair department and bullying from Executive Producers. During the Season, it continued along with Sexual Harassment from a recurring guest star and the racist commentary & bullying from the Hair Dept. Head escalated into Sexual Assault at our Wrap party.The Sexual Harassment though reported directly to the Showrunner/EP remained undocumented and was not reported to HR as promised. The Hair Dept. Head was fired ONLY after the sexual assault and NOT for an entire year of outward racism/racially charged language and bullying behavior in and out of the Hair and Makeup trailer. HR protocol was never adhered to following the above reports given by me to my Showrunner/EP and an investigation was never issued for any of my claims. The only time I was asked to participate in an investigation was after a meeting I called in June following our Season 2 announcement. This meeting included the Showrunner and two other producers as well as my agent and SAG-AFTRA Union Rep. It was clear to all present in the meeting that the Showrunner had not shared my reports with the any of the producers. After my initial report of sexual harassment, I was assured that the actor would be fired. I was also asked to film with him the very next day as a courtesy to the script, even though we had not begun filming the episode yet. This actor reappeared on our call sheet at the end of the season, I was even written in scenes with him. I asked the Showrunner about this and he admitted to me that the actor had not been fired nor had he gotten HR involved. I was asked to return this season, and promised that “everything was handled.” The investigation hadn’t even begun and Season 2 had already started filming. I turned it down and I walked. Now is the best time in the world to be a woman and I have a platform so it’s time to use my Voice. Strength comes from within. It comes from Above. “Greater is He that is within Me than he that is in the world” ❤️🙏🏽

    White guy marries black woman. What could go wrong?

    https://www.babygaga.com/this-dad-want-to-pay-someone-to-do-biracial-daughters-hair/

    — Wife goes on three-week business trip.

    — Guy is expected to do daily maintenance on 5-year-old daughter’s half-black hair.

    — Wife give lessons in washing, conditioning, combing, and styling it.

    — It turned out to be really time consuming and involved a screaming daughter.

    — Wife accuses husband of damaging daughter’s scalp.

    — Dad suggests hiring someone to do it, which caused wife to blow up because she thought dad was lazy and did not want to be involved in daughter’s existance.

    — Social media directs him to YouTube’s extensive how-to’s on doing your black kid’s hair.

    I think the idea that my children would be black would nix any thoughts I might have of dating or marrying a black woman. This is just one of many problems that are going to pop up in this guy’s life. At least he doesn’t have a boy.

    Good point – if the “losers” are winning, then they are winners. The “right” or the “sane” or the race realists are still in the game of pointing at the crazies and saying “look how crazy they are!!!” (I include iSteve in his posts here), but pointing out how crazy the woke are is like pointing out how uncivilized the Mongol hoard were – you still get murdered and your wife gets raped and your children are enslaved and they take your country – so what good does the pointing and laughing and sense of superiority really accomplish?

    Strutting around feeling better than losers was the main thread that runs throughout Nietzche’s entire philosophy. After all, why should one identify with the slaves (losers) and not with the Supermen? And if you can’t strut around too confidently at first, then at least try to fake it till you make it.

    But are these REAL socialists? The vast majority of them are Boomer Liberal Yuppie spawn (no wonder they’re fucked up.) Their goal isn’t going to destroy capitalism, but shake it like a piñata. They have no plans of joining a Union unless it’s in public-sector academia. I’m sure Lenin and Trotsky would weep, seeing capitalism turn socialism/communism into a consumer commodity/identity.

    A mere day after the US officially exited the landmark Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty (INF) which had cooled the Cold War arms race, preventing a build-up in Europe, the Pentagon is looking to deploy intermediate range conventional missiles in the Pacific region “within months” …Noting that it will most certainly provoke the ire of China, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Friday of the plans, “It’s fair to say, though, that we would like to deploy a capability sooner rather than later.” … Consider for example, how Washington and the American public would react if China were to deploy medium-range missiles in Greenland or anywhere in the Atlantic for that matter. … On Friday, 88-year old Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, who originally signed the INF alongside Reagan, warned “This US move will cause uncertainty and chaotic development of international politics.”

    True, but I must note that Tom Wolfe pointed this out years ago, in I think The Painted Word. Old Leftists imagined there was one culture, truth, beauty, and the evil rich were hoarding it in their mansions. Come the revolution, all would have access. After a day of rewarding work, Mr. and Mrs. Worker would put on their Sunday best and go to the free opera performances. (that’s the part I remember).

    The New Left idea was that culture, truth, beauty is just what the rich like and they impose it on the diverse the 99%. After the revolution all these oppressive standards will be swept away and replaced with….

    If the guy really does have such a mental disorder, maybe he shouldn’t be attending meetings of large groups of people and should be visiting his shrink instead. He seems to think everything is all about him — doesn’t sound like much of a socialist. He sounds more like a self-centered, radical individualist.

    Angela Davis was pretty much the biggest name in the CPUSA for many years.

    And that young lady at the podium seems more attractive than most of the delegates, so I nominate her as the leader. Would you rather see her at the podium or that genderless red blob who complained about gendered language?

    Many people feel free speech should be limited to those whom one does not consider deplorable.

    I remember when friends of the family were running the Arkansas ACLU, and the ACLU went to bat for a Communist prof at UA Little Rock. I heard the guy speak once. A total moron. A friend of mine used to be a Marxist before wandering over to the Libertarians. My friend once sat next to the guy on a bus to a commie convention and said the guy was embarrassing even for a communist. Said that Stalin could not be criticized.

    Meanwhile, the Illinois ACLU defended the Illinois Nazis against the Blues Brothers or something.

    The point is, free speech is for everyone or no one.

    The censorship of Brimelow was appalling.

    It wasn’t that long ago when Eugene McCarthy could openly associate with Brimelow, and then-President Bill Clinton was rumored to have read “Alien Nation”. Now Brimelow is too deplorable to have the same free speech rights as Communists and Nazis.

    I remember the girl at the podium from college (I’m a UW Madison poli sci grad). She was a real “True Believer” in the classroom, with a special fire in the eyes on matters SJW. I was reading biographies about Mao and China at the time, and her comments in lecture halls reminded me of what the Cultural Revolution must have been like.

    It’s almost as silly as PUAs who think their “game” actually makes them superior, instead of dancing monkeys who are part of the problem.

    PUAs are a small part of the manosphere. These days most of it is just average guys trying to survive in a hostile environment–sirens, land mines, sharp-shooters (and a _lot_ of tanks 🙂 ) at school, at work, at home, at church, in the courts etc.

    Their goal is to destroy capitalism. No, they have not given any real thought about what replaces it, and how to do it, but Lenin hadn’t really thought about what would replace capitalism either. The Bolsheviks used seizures and the printing press as their main sources of revenue (as would every one of these clowns were they to take power) and hyperinflation was the result. The communists rationalized it all by saying it was a good thing because it meant the death of capitalism. That is the level of thought. Comrades who can barely run a meeting, don’t do well running an economy. Sooner or later, a Stalin must show up.

    Roughly. Actually the early Bolshies were very much like our SJWs, true nominalists, sexually tolerant, beauty is what I say it is, and of course they had no idea how to run anything. Then Stalin came in and embraced anything that wasn’t explicitly in conflict with “Leninism,” even restoring churches during the war.

  100. then-President Bill Clinton was rumored to have read “Alien Nation”.

    Yeah, they even say the “let them eat cake” phrase by Antoinette wasn’t actually by her. But it sure is entertaining! They’re BOTH good quotes. Though you shouldn’t say the Antoinette quote while speaking to the Congressional Ways and Means Committee.

    The New Testament and the various Christian churches constitute an excellent record of Jesus. How many low born individuals of that era have a comparable record? Even some Roman Emperors aren’t as well documented.
