Support for QAnon by selected demographics:

It is a boogey man on the left. While only 7% of Democrats have not ever heard of QAnon, 29% of Republicans are unaware of it.

QAnon is the MAGA movement’s Prester John. The red hat crusaders’ last stand is less than a week away. If he doesn’t come then, he isn’t coming at all, because he doesn’t exist.

  1. You wanna a good laugh.

    Here’s some goofball stuff. And the toothfairy will leave $20 under your pillow.


    How to predict the future? It’s really simple. It’s a matter of WHAT DO JEWS WANT?

    Why did 2020 happen? Jews wanted to make trouble to unseat Trump.

    That’s it.

    So, as long as Jews rule, the future will be about Jews doing whatever to get what they want.

    That is the future.

  5. “Support” doesn’t necessarily equate to “Belief”, in this study, does it?

    The numbers evidence themselves because most of the young right is… extremely online, for lack of a better word. I would imagine that the few kids referring to themselves as “Republican” are probably caught up with the Plan-Truster-in-Chief, Nicholas “I Bottom for Catboys” Fuentes.

    Just like the Old Right, the Young Right loves being led by homos.

    “Better a sultan’s turban than a cardinal’s hat.”

    The Muslims did not return the favor centuries later: the Bosniaks were among the most loyal demographics the Hapsburg empire had in its dying days, because they knew what the Serbs would do to them. (Also, Central European Jewish loyalty to the Habsburg dynasty was well deserved considering their eventual fate after their removal. The latter day empire had its flaws, but it managed to reconcile explicit Catholicism in its social structure and values with genuine tolerance for religious minorities. More than you can say for many multiethnic states.)

It’s going to be another 8 years before even 50% of the oldest Boomers expire, and then another 20 more years while we wait for the rest of the generation to roll off.

    I don’t know the origins of Q-Anon. I assume it burbled up on the chans or something. However, I do not discount the possibility that state-actors (i.e. intelligence agencies) started promoting it in order to neuter and discredit the populist right.

    The far right is politically insignificant

    Agreed. The far right is a joke.

    And it’s making itself more of a joke by spiralling further and further downwards into insanity and lunatic conspiracy theories.

    Which is a problem because it means there’s no effective opposition to the political establishment.

    My bitterness towards the dissident right stems from disappointment. A few years back they looked like they might actually turn themselves into an effective alternative to the establishment political parties. Which I thought at the time would be a good thing. I still think that the emergence of a populist Right would be a good thing (and I think that the emergence of a populist Left would be a good thing).

    Unfortunately the dissident right failed. It failed through inept leadership and also because it had a rather low level of human capital to work with. It’s obvious now in hindsight that extreme right politics does not exactly attract the best and the brightest. The dissident right also failed because it attracted way too many crazies (which perhaps should have been anticipated).

    What could have been a positive political movement became a clownshow.

    I’m not so bitter towards the SJWs/Wokeists because I never expected anything positive from such scum.

    What we’re now looking at is a political environment entirely dominated by the political establishment with no-one to oppose them. On one side there are the economic right/socially liberal establishment right parties like the Republicans. On the other side there are the economic right/socially liberal establishment “left” parties like the Democrats. Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

    The failure of both the dissident right and Trumpian populism has left the establishment in complete control.

    When you start talking in terms of Left and Right you’re talking in terms that have been effectively obsolete for decades. Politics today is dominated by the Economic Right and the Cultural Left but the modern Economic Right stands for a partnership between Big Capital and Big Government so it’s closer to classical fascism than anything else. The Cultural Left isn’t Left at all, it’s just a tool of the Economic Right. The Cultural Left is funded by Woke Capital which is a pretty big clue that there’s nothing leftist (in the traditional sense) about it.

    Back in the days when Left and Right still had some vague meaning (and you’d have to go back at least half a century) I’d have been a moderate centre-leftist, probably more centrist than leftist.

    If you’re using the term Left in the meaningless modern sense then no, I am definitely not a leftist in that sense.

    Unfortunately no-one has been able to come up with meaningful replacements for the terms left and right, or at least no-one has been able to come up with meaningful replacements that have become generally accepted.

    Your notion in this matter remains unmoored from facts.

    That’s okay. You are not required to know anything about the American dissident right, but I find it curious that it should be so important to you to maintain a strong opinion about a thing about which you evidently know so little.

    There is no realistic alternative to the proposition that white people have interests. Human capital thus has nowhere else to go. Observably, such capital is found on the dissident right in rising concentrations.

    I would love to have no opinions on US politics but I have no choice. If you live within the American Empire, as I do, you have to be interested in US politics.

    There is no realistic alternative to the proposition that white people have interests.

    The problem is that most white people don’t agree. In fact the primary motivation of most white people is screwing over other white people.

    There is a realistic alternative, which is the proposition that white people are divided into warring factions that never will and never can unite. Until that is understood no progress can be made.

    I tend to agree with Twinkie that the current political struggles are a civil war between white factions.

    Doom has some serious blind spots as we all do. His air head peacenik views

    I don’t know why you think I’m a peacenik. My position is that a large proportion of wars have been futile. The First World War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the numerous Middle East adventures of the US, Napoleon’s ludicrous military adventurism. These wars were futile because they were entered into without any realistic consideration of what could be achieved and they were futile because they were incompetently executed.

    That doesn’t mean all wars are futile and unnecessary and unjust.

    War is something that should only be contemplated if it’s unavoidable. And if you’re going to start a war it’s a good idea to have a plan for actually winning it. Which means for one thing that you need to understand that wars are fought to achieve political objectives. War is not a sport.

    It’s a good idea, before starting a war, to consider the consequences of losing.

    It’s also worth asking yourself who is actually going to benefit from a particular war. If the answer to that question is that the only people who will benefit are the military and defence contractors it’s probably not a good war.

    But some wars have been necessary.

    I don’t think that makes me a peacenik. It makes me a sceptic.

    and resentment of the U. S. cloud his thinking.

    If your country was a puppet state of a foreign power you’d probably be resentful. Isn’t that why you guys had your revolution? To attain independence and sovereignty? How would you feel if you were still part of the British Empire? Well that’s how I feel about being part of the American Empire.

    That’s why I made a distinction between the alt-right and the MAGA cultists. They’re not the same although they overlap to some extent. Some MAGA cultists are definitely far right. Trump is not far right but most of the MAGA cultists are too dumb to understand that. But then most MAGA cultists probably can’t tie their own shoe-laces without help.

    Trump has little in common with his band of MAGA cultists. They’re not following Trump, they’re following a fantasy Trump who only exists in their own imaginations.

    The late George F. Kennan observed that the United States does most harm when she tries to do the right thing. He recommended that the United States instead pursue American interests. Not U.S. imperial interests, for those differ; but American interests.

    Vladimir Putin’s Russia pursues Russian interests. Vladimir Putin’s Russia does little harm.

    To be clear, I do not promote the menacing of Canada or Panama, but American interests there are as enduring as Russian interests in the Crimea or in Belarus have been—and we see how the Crimean case has turned out. I do not menace but merely decline to deny a fact.

    There’s some truth to that. To Americans politics is an extension of religion. Americans see themselves as having the One True Political Religion and they have to convert the whole world, even if the whole world doesn’t want to be converted.

    That applies as much to the American Right as to the American Left.

    Another legacy of Puritanism.

    There’s also the difficulty Americans seem to have in comprehending the fact that other cultures are in fact different and that other people are entitled to have their own cultures. They find it difficult to grasp the idea that maybe not everyone wants to be an American. To Americans if other people don’t want to embrace American culture and American politics then the only explanation is that those people must be wicked and should be bombed.

    America is not the world’s policeman. America is the world’s missionary.
