As I wrote a couple of months ago:

The ultimate reason for this mass psychosis is that Russiagate has simply became far too useful to the Western elites for it to ever be abandoned. They have discovered that Putler’s Russia, endowed with God-like powers, can be assigned blame for any problem, from the popularity of populist insurgents from the Left and the Right, to their own failures… This approach clearly works, given the overwhelmingly positive reception these stories generate amongst the “Intellectual Yet Idiot” class, at least judging by the reactions from the Blue Checkmarks or the sub-morons on /r/politics and /r/worldnews.

We are now at the point where BLM and Antifa have transmogrified into Russian Nazis. ℌ𝔢𝔦𝔩 𝔓𝔘𝔗𝔏𝔈ℜ!

  2. They have discovered that Putler’s Russia, endowed with God-like powers, can be assigned blame for any problem, from the popularity of populist insurgents from the Left and the Right, to their own failures… This approach clearly works, given…

    So Russians are basically the Jews for the American Left.

    I am far more fascinated by the psychology of needing to assign all blame to one group, even when it’s completely contradictory, as well as ones own failures.

    There has to be some kind of deep psychology here.

    I wonder if Jung’s concept of the Shadow is useful here – in the case of the Russians, they represent all the repressed “bad” instincts Leftists are repressing.

    I am increasingly interested in the way pure symbolism rules human affairs. It doesn’t matter what any one does, it matters what they symbolize. In fact, you could do the opposite of what you symbolize and it won’t matter.

    Reason has never ruled human affairs, but it seems like we are once again in one of those periods where increased irrationality is holding sway.

    Interesting times.

    Agreed in the main, but I think it's wrong to pin this on the "American Left" - they are more crisply identifiable as "libs."

    Agree. Remember, for Jung, the brighter the white light a person bathes themselves in, the darker their shadow. The shadow is not so much "repressed" stuff (in Freud's sense), as it is that part of ourselves which we won't allow ourselves to see. We are literally blind to it.

    "I am increasingly interested in the way pure symbolism rules human affairs." Ain't it the truth. The stories we tell ourselves and the myths we live by. It won't be long before the President is just a pixelated image appearing on our handheld computer screens--and it won't make a damn bit of difference.

    "Reason has never ruled human affairs", though Plato and Aristotle tried mightily to put Reason on the throne.

    I believe it was Kierkegaard who observed that humans had either a Scientific, Religious or Artistic temperament, corresponding to a life in pursuit of knowledge, faith or beauty. I would classify all American liberals as religious people. They aren't interested in backing their claims with evidence and care not a whit for mathematical modeling. They believe that all humans are equal and that is just accepted as self evident. It you don't share their belief, then you are damned (deplorable). They're really quite puritanical.

  3. Those two subs are essentially propaganda organs now. Same as msm, but even more effective imo as they appear organic.

  4. It never ceases to amaze me the lengths white Americans will go to make excuses for black violence, even Trump supporters do it.

    Over the course of this rioting I’ve seen Americans make countless excuses for it, such as the Democrat party is to blame, Russia is to blame, China is to blame, the lack of “good jerbs” for blacks is to blame, it’s really white people rioting, etc. It seems many of them will literally say anything to detract away from the fact that blacks are violent thugs.

  5. The left has spent a lot of effort on making sure that anything and anyone can be branded “white supremacists” without evidence and that politicians have a really easy time shutting down “hate groups” under the assumption that it would never be used against them. It would be funny if they finally cracked down on antifa by branding it a white supremacist hate group – and they will if the elites see serious enough property damage.

    This isn't a popular uprising, because in a REAL popular uprising, everyone is badass and does it for cool reasons like overthrowing tyranny. Here, they do it because of wrong reasons so real popular uprisings have never been tried.
     
    Revolutions have always been about looting, razing and being a general nigger. There's no shame in saying you don't want to go do that.
    But these nerds want reality to become a french revolutionary painting before they finally get off the couch, strap on half a ton of milsim gear and finally get to show the commie bastards in government what's what. Pathetic.
