All the corporatocracy had to do to neutralize the Occupy Wall Street movement was signal support for Wokeism. We’ll cheer on transgender athletes and BIPOC Ivy League graduates, you let us grind the working and middle classes into the dirt while enacting the largest upward transfers of wealth in the history of the world. Deal? Deal!

Stand up to phobicism by joining every Fortune 500 company, academia, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, the military, the media, and all the other significant cultural institutions in America as they unite in one thunderous voice to speak truth to power:

It has been nearly two decades since Republicans have pulled in more corporate cash than Democrats. The Corporate Party raised $500 million more than the Stupid Party did at the presidential level in 2020.

That enormous advantage is only going to grow. Democrats no longer talk about overturning Citizens United, and it’s easy to see why. The salty progressives who want money out of politics are a bunch of racists and sexists anyway.

That the GOP allows itself to be portrayed as the party of the rich without even realizing any of the benefits actually being the party of the rich would garner it is one of the many reasons its Stupid Party moniker is so richly (heh) deserved.

    All of our best people have been deplatformed or neutered by Big Tech

    But Anti-White Racism and Far-Left subversion runs riot

    If the GOP can’t be bothered to force Big Tech to replatform the far-right, the least they can do is demand subversives like her and Unicorn Riot are shut down.

    William Clinton was the start of all this. He was backed by the emerging Silicon Valley overlords in the 1992 election and threw Unions under the bus in order to gain support from Wall Street. The Clinton-ites fundamentally changed the US party system regarding allegiance of big money.

  6. For the best, I say. You give whites without diplomas the ability to have their own party, and what happens? They elect a philosemitic billionaire who took on China before neutering Wall Street, all while feeding the people who voted for him to the wolves, bit by bit. That’s a more retarded thing to do than just going along with the takeover.

    As I’ve said, un-lifted whites deserve the pit of vipers that they now inhabit. Hopefully the end will be quick, but it certainly won’t be painless. I’ll be laughing from China.

  7. This is darned tight writing, AE, with data to back it, to boot. Not a word is wasted.

    Insofar as prestigious legacy outlets like The New York Times and even The Wall Street Journal no longer seem interested in recruiting real talent such as just displayed, except in the service of the tired narratives those outlets’ editors keep bleating to themselves, one wonders what will become of those legacy outlets. How much you get paid to write at Unz is none of my business, but one may surmise that, adjusted for inflation, it is not likely a tenth of what, say, William Safire got paid hourly in his prime.

    Something is out of balance when a shoestring operation (I say it with sincere affection) like The Unz Review, funded chiefly as far as I can tell out of the comparatively modest retirement savings of a single retired businessman, is outperforming august institutions like The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal at what used to be a pair of core competencies: good American English, driven by interesting supporting facts.

  8. I agree with this wholeheartedly. Woke is all about deflecting criticisms to global corporate power. It’s meteoric rise over ten years doesn’t make much sense as an organic process and has clearly been driven by the media in a sustained push.
    When you look at who really controls America it’s corporate power all the way.

    It’s a real shame that most of the very wealthy feel no kinship to fellow Whites. They do feel religious fervor when they promote a minority or a degenerate. What happens when the country finally implodes? Will middle class Whites continue putting blm signs in their yards and supporting affirmative action policies when they start affecting home values and their children’s careers? It doesn’t end well.

    The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are rancid rump swabs that push globalization and multiculturalism and sovereignty-sapping trade deal scams and nation-wrecking mass legal immigration and mass illegal immigration and foreign policy adventurism and both the New York Times and the WSJ are owned and controlled by nasty plutocrats.

    The Murdoch Mob and the Sulzberger Mob must be removed from power and they must be financially liquidated and then legally and forcibly sent to a fenced and walled compound in a fetid and steaming part of sub-Saharan Africa.

    The editorial pages of the NYTs and the WSJ are so vile and disgusting that Paul Krugman stands out for being only slightly rancid when all the other contributors and the editorials themselves are disgusting propaganda for plutocracy and globalization and mass legal immigration and mass illegal immigration.

    Henninger and Gigot at the WSJ are particularly treasonous and rancid and at least the Black columnists and the baby boomer Jew boneheads Brooks and Friedman are semi-comical in their anti-White screeds.

    Krugman is a high IQ moron who scares the cows in Vermont when he goes riding his bicycle in Lycra and Krugman uses propaganda by omission by downplaying the Fed’s role in this crooked money system we got and Krugman will say that the Fed credits the banks but Krugman downplays the significance of how the Fed electronically conjured up the dollars in the first place.

    I browse through the WSJ and the NYTs to see what the enemy is up to.

    If only the Robber Barons of late 19th and early 20th century America had known all they had to do was join together and declare themselves ‘Woke’ and the Income Tax and Anti Trust laws would vanish. That Henry Frick could shoot all the steel union leaders he wanted if he just called them “White Supremacists” first.

    What kind of upside down world are we in when Warren Buffett, a man who has never done anything in his life but speculate in the shares of existing companies and lend at usurious interest rates, becomes a moral exemplar? When the CEO’s of bankrupt companies like Delta, United and American Airlines offer their sage counsel and people don’t laugh in their face.

    Back in the good old days the rich had to put their money where their mouth is to redeem their name. Today a gesture is worth more than funding a Stanford, Duke or Vanderbilt University. It used to be the rich would buy politicians. Today they buy the voters who elect the politicians and the voter don’t even know they were bought. Smart I suppose but those voters only get to jeer at the plutocrats enemies and think they ‘won’.

  13. There is no permanent triumph. History is never over.

    Woke companies aren’t helping themselves by making alliance with the side that pushes decline. The left is damaging the economy, but more critically, the left is collapsing fertility in all the developed countries. Economic collapse caused by the left (socialism, collapsing fertility) seems inescapable. Have fun with this, woke companies.

    There may come a time when companies start thinking about investing in churches as collapsing fertility and social order begins wreaking their bottom line. But by then it will be far too late to avoid a system crash. Woke companies still have to live in this world.

    MAGA Populism took U.S. Workers away from the SJW DNC. It was inevitable that Anti-Worker Globalists (e.g. multinationals, U.S. Chamber of Commerce) would flee in panic to the Anti-Worker DNC. The formation of Populist MAGA has left the DNC with a combination of leftovers that is inherently unworkable.

    Redistricting will include the Worker loyalty shifts to MAGA. Any GOP(e) hacks attempting to hang on will be consolidated into SJW districts. This will:

    • Maximize MAGA House wins in 2022.
    • Provoke Ultra-Left Progressive -vs- SJW Corporate fights in DNC primaries.

    If Progressives lose because they are outspent…. It could schism the DNC before the general election. Even if they hold it together up to the election, losing the House will create massive ill will between the Nazi-crat factions.

    ASSET BUBBLE BOLSHEVISM

    The evil plutocrats and the rancid corporations have started a war against the European Christian ancestral core of the USA and they are using monetary extremism emanating from the privately-controlled Federal Reserve Bank to concentrate wealth and power in the USA.

    My Swiftian modest proposal is to financially liquidate the plutocrats and the corporate managerial scum and the greedy White Upper Middle Class snot brats and then legally and forcibly exile them to a walled and fenced compound in an area of sub-Saharan Africa rife with humidity and muck and pestilence.

    The JEW/WASP Ruling Class of the American Empire is using weaponized accusations of so-called “racism” and so-called “anti-Semitism” and other accusations to attack and destroy the European Christian ancestral core of the USA. The JEW/WASP Ruling Class is doing this to shield themselves from any criticism or scrutiny while they plunder and grab all their ill-gotten gains.

    Asset Bubble Bolshevism must be stopped and the rancid Republican Party is fully supportive of Asset Bubble Bolshevism.

    I wrote this in August of 2020:

    The money-grubbing, plutocrat Democrat Party globalizers are using identity group politics to shield themselves from scrutiny.

    The answer to that is to bring up the question of American national identity and the founding core of the USA.

    The late Sam Huntington would say that the national identity of the USA is British Protestant and Pat Buchanan would say European Christian, but both would reject the anti-White multiculturalism that the WASP/JEW ruling class of the American Empire is now pushing.

    What is the ancestral core of the USA?

    The ancestral core of the USA is European Christian and the rancid Republican Party will not explicitly say that.

    The rancid Republican Party must be electorally destroyed on November 3.

    I often wonder how our enlightened benefactor, Unz himself, was ever thinking when he joined that party of imbeciles, grifters and losers. One of the occasional childish truths Trump would commonly blab out was how much more effective Democrats are than the Republicans as a governing party.. Anyway, perhaps in the 1980s things didn’t look so irretrievable then, even though most of it’s contemporary idiocies can be traced precisely back to Reagan, whom even hardcore mainline Republicans would probably concede as their last successful figurehead.
