The disgustingly obese Boomer Bannon, who has been sent packing by European nationalists, has gotten himself some Chinese emigre billionaire sugar daddy and is now making weird videos astroturfing the “New Federal State of China.”

What I take to be the new state’s proposed anthem:

This is reaching levels of cringe and Guaido that were previously thought to be impossible.

Anyhow, I suppose everybody needs to make their grift some way or other, the Great Bifurcation will be providing plenty of opportunities and Bannon has at least been timely in jumping about that train.

  1. Please keep off topic posts to the current Open Thread.

    If you are new to my work, start here.

  2. This is reaching levels of cringe and Guaido that were previously thought to be impossible.

    Yes. This is of a part with ‘women can have penises too’, ‘all men are equal’, and ‘you can be whatever you want to be so long as you believe in yourself and work hard’. Also believing that inside the heart of every Afghani is an American fighting to get out and just needs a little help (with napalm).

    Modern Americans are decadent and crazy and do not recognize reality as a valid limitation on their beliefs or behaviors.

    They believe they have the power to construct reality however they please with the power of lies, that reality only exists in how they choose to perceive it. That 2 + 2 can be equal to 5 if everyone wills it.

    Also they have nuclear weapons.

    Interesting times.

  3. If it were a regular person, it would be as cringy as BAP and Ramzpaul pushing Alaska tea. But this guy wrote Trump’s victory speech. It’s federal-level cringe.

    Today’s Americans are not planet’s best, although, I assume, some are good people.

    What gets me is Bannon is a supposed dissident, someone who sees some of the problems with liberalism. Yet here he is, pushing more liberalism in other parts of the world, when his agenda isn’t close to being adopted at home.

    Seriously, the CCP is one of the most domestically popular governments in the world, and you think some discount EU flag is going attract the average Chinese man? You think they haven’t paid attention to the dysfunction of the EU following Covid? What internal faction within China is going to support this? Advocating a Qing restoration or a Falun Gong caliphate would be less fake and gay then this.

    Bannon is ready for the glue factory. He should be put down. Dumb boomers like him are determined to have another Cold War, no matter how little sense it makes.

  7. That footballer is a genuine surprise.

    From certain perspectives, and to some degree, Dr. Sun Yat-sen was kind of like this, but China (and the world) back then was quite different from China (and the world) now, of course. 😀

    To be fair to Bannon, I don’t think he’s that obese. He’s fat and overweight for sure, but not that obese compared to many Americans his age.

    Ironically, Bannon was on that boat in New York harbor by Manhattan just hours after Manhattan was a warzone taken over by rioters and looters. Kind of the worst time and place to be promoting American style liberalism.

    What I don’t understand is why this project seems so half-assed and has such low production values. Not just the Chinese billionaire, Miles Guo, but Bannon himself is very wealthy from his career at Goldman Sachs and in investment banking. He’s made tens of millions from buying Seinfeld and other shows. And Bannon has connections to Hollywood. But the whole flag and anthem and video just looks very cheaply produced. The opening shot looks like it was lifted from the Paramount Pictures logo. The EU style flag looks lame and very generic. And the anthem video seems to have just slapped together generic pics of places and landmarks outside of China. It looks like something a high school kid quickly slapped together for a school project or something.

    And there doesn’t seem to be any appeals made to China or to Chinese things, themes, or motifs. The flag is generic. The anthem references the Himalayas, which I don’t think the Chinese regard as a Chinese geographic landmark, like say the Yangtze or Yellow rivers. And the Constitution is just generic liberal constitutionalism.

    Bannon himself just looks like he’s going through the motions and not too enthusiastic about the whole thing.

    The only thing that we regard it as is that its on the way to India.

    Its pretty cringe on so many levels. Hard to watch through.

    This is far more Chinese in attitude for stoicism and the idea of endurance, in contrast:

    Excellent comment.Whenever I comment this close to

    but I’m at about 50/50.The truth is not that complicated
    unless it’s a world full of liars all profiting from the chaos.Imagine
    a sane world w/o $trillions of debt for war,ego and envy.I wonder
    if you can,a brotherhood of man,and no racist religions too…
    I hope this one goes to somewhere,because I’m not wrong.Thanks

  14. American regard of a public personality as some sort of guru or mastermind seems almost to never fail as a pointer to an over-ambitious, second-rate mind.

    The CCP can be blamed for destroying Confucianism, and getting rid of traditional Chinese scripts, a little less faster technological progress would be an acceptable price to pay for bringing back State Confucianism. And I do not think the Chinese here can relate since they are all whitewashed Westernized American born Chinese bananas anyway.

    Why are the Statue of Liberty, the Colosseum and the Eiffel Tower in the video?

    I am guessing that images of USA, Italy, France, Japan are meant to be inspire the idea that China too can join the club of powerful liberal allied countries. Same with the EU-knockoff flag. Or something.

    … or this is just a really low-key effort.

    Actually, it would have been better to simply modify the Five Races One Union flag and for the video use the Chinese mountains and monuments on the backside of RMB notes and perhaps few pictures of Tank Man or other prominent Commie controversies (anything would have been better than what they chose to do).

    Perhaps instead of vague and meaningless statements, you could read some New Mainland Confucian essays and then make specific policy proposals, otherwise you are merely whining.

  19. I find it odd that he’s clearly based the “new” Chinese flag on the EU flag considering I thought Bannon was supposed to be anti-EU and a Brexit supporter?

  20. Znzn says:
    @Hyperborean

    Reinstate the Confucian civil service exam, and make it the requirement again to have compulsory memorization of the Confucian classics before someone can get into the government, like it was before 1911, in order to reinstate Confucian orthodoxy in the running of the country, get rid of the rule that only atheists can get into the civil service. Currently the rule is that someone who has a religion can not join the CCP.

    I think a possible problem for China is that we have little idea just how much unemployment or underemployment it has, since the government employment data does not include migrant labour, and lots of Chinese factories like Foxconn and FAW are automating their factories, and those people who are displaced by those robots have to go somewhere, and they are ending up in the gig economy where employment is unstable, with no worker benefits like retirement pensions, or the Chinese version of Walmart jobs. Basically you have 600 million Chinese who get by on less than 4.60 dollars a day, or 1000 CNY a month.

  22. @Znzn

    See that wasn’t so hard, now you just need to maintain this more constructive attitude.

    Although, I have to admit, I am confused as to why you care since, unless I misunderstood things, you are an American white nationalist?

    He has a point. They are trying to reconstruct the link to previous Chinese history and culture which was destroyed by the Cultural Revolution.

  25. @Kent Nationalist

    No, he doesn’t. He is just regurgitating retarded anons with Chinese sounding handles. Also a talking point taken up by most of the known Zionist anons. He is saying China should become another version of qing China. Where it was rich and militarily weak. Easy for looting.

    The biggest fantasy they are trying to sell is soft power can win against hard power. A yapping tongue can beat a gun pointing at them ready to fire.

    Lol.

    That’s every single version of China for at least the thousand years before 1948.

    Nope.

    Znzn for his part has no idea what he is rambling about either, and I don’t have the time to deal with it at the moment.

  28. @Kent Nationalist

    Haha, you are now an expert on Chinese power and the last 1000 years of it’s history? I don’t even dare to claim anything close to it even after all the reading I do on China.

    Great song and superb voice, definitely not a fan of how she lived her life though. Especially how she passed away, very Globohomo.

    A truly wonderful song about the Himalayas, by two Chinese/Tibetan singers.

    The Ming dynasty was able to defeat the Dutch during the Sino-Dutch conflicts of the middle of the 17th century:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino%E2%80%93Dutch_conflicts

    This was during the Dutch Golden Age when the Dutch were a major European power and able to defeat England in some of the Anglo-Dutch wars.

    2 centuries later however, the British were able to soundly defeat Qing China in the Opium Wars. What was decisive in the Opium Wars were the British steamships. The Industrial Revolution which intervened between the Sino-Dutch conflicts and the Opium Wars made China too relatively weak militarily to be able to defend itself.

    How else are Miles and Bannon going to whitewash all that NED funding they receive? They need to put it something, even if it is crappy, to make it appear legitimate on paper.
