This entry will use the recent big indaba about Milo Yiannopoulos' expulsion from CPAC and Breitbart's to illustrate why YouTubes anti-SJW gods-in-their-own-mind of 2017 are dismal amateurs by comparing their reaction to said big indaba over Milo to the way other, far more big league conservatives have reacted to similar situations. To paraphrase Andrew Dice Clay's narration from The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, "Listening to YouTubes anti-SJW gods-in-their-own-minds in 2017 is like masturbating with a cheese grater, slightly amusing, but mostly painful." I am going off of two vids made on the subject, first,
this one by Kraut and Tea
and the following one by Woz Lee
Before I get to these vids, some background on where I stand with Milo, as well as with Kraut and Tea and with Woz Lee is in order.
First, the positives. Yes, Milo did write about #GamerGate when few others would. This was back when #GamerGate was a thing, before Jordan Owen's filim The Sarkeesian Effect became the final nail in that coffin, before Anita Sarkeesian proved that, as powerful as she and #GamerGaters would have liked to believe that she was, she still could not get #GamerGate originator Adam Baldwin fired from The Last Ship. And yes, unlike Sargon, Vindicator, Charmingman93, Woz Lee and Dick Coughlan, Milo speaks Nice, Normal Person English. He is the only English anti-SJW besides Thunderf00t who does not moonlight as a Ronnie and Reggie Kray impersonator by day, the diction and sounds of which carry on over onto YouTubes.
That being said, the overwhelming majority of YouTubes anti-SJW gods-in-their-own-minds regard Milo--and ratchet Old Canadian-speaking Lauren Southern--to be "heroes"/"martyrs" because they go to college campuses or demonstrations in America, Canada or Britain and then get jostled, incurring injuries that are typically an order of magnitude less severe than one normally gets in the course of a Friday night brawl at a pool hall or a whorehouse bar before the local Kettenhunden or peelers smash in and haul everyone's bruised, hung-over asses to the brig. YouTubes anti-SJW gods-in-their-own-minds--a term which, for brevity's sake, I may use interchangeably with Ronnie and Reggie Kray impersonators/Edward G. Robinson & George Raft outer-boro hoodlum impersonators--think that Milo and Southern going to these places in the West and deliberately provoking a reaction somehow makes them brave, intrepid, exceptional and cutting edge "journalists."
Apart from the fact that, as mentioned above, both Milo and Southern walk away from such staged incidents far less scathed than would have been the case had they tried to troll pool halls and whorehouse bars on a Friday night, let us compare them to some conservative journalists of yore. I am specifically speaking of all the old Soldier Of Fortune hands, SOF being around--and reporting--since 1975, Milo being born in 1984, Southern being born sometime even later than Milo. Before you think anything Milo and Southern "endured" at their staged provocations makes them da Big Kahuna, compare what they went through to what the following SOF hands went through before Milo and Southern were even born or when they were mere weans.
- Mike Echanis was killed in action in Central America.
- George Bacon was killed in action in Angola
- Barry Sadler was assassinated in Guatemala
- Colonel Robert Callen Mackenzie was butchered in Sierra Leone.
If you think these are four "outliers," read the memoirs of living SOF contributors Rob Krott and Al J. Venter, as well as of SOF honcho Colonel Robert K. Brown--and, for that matter, of Canadian military magazine Esprit de Corps honcho Scott Raymond Taylor, who was kidnapped, held hostage and tortured in Iraq. For thems who don't do "reading," here is the skinny. Getting yelled at and jostled at an incident you deliberately staged may bring you immense street cred on the YouTubes, but it is nowhere near the same thing as getting ordnance from a Kalashnikov AK-47, a Dragunov, an RPG-7 or an SA-7 hurled at you on a regular basis for weeks and months on end while you cover a story. And for thems whose whole world revolves around the Intar-Webs, the "RPG" in "RPG-7" has nothing at all to do with "role playing games," or with "games" of any kind in general.
Milo makes a big impression on YouTubes Ronnie and Reggie Kray imitators as "being a conservative." Milo was born in 1984. In 1984, Pat Buchanan had already worked for Richard Nixon and was about to go work for Ronald Reagan. In 1984, William F. Buckley had already been hosting his conservative Firing Line TV discussion show--before Morton Downey Jr., before Rush Limbaugh--for nearly two decades. Compared to the SOF crew, Pat Buchanan and William F. Buckley Jr., Milo is an extremely unoriginal Junior G Man.
Kraut and Tea
I generally like Kraut and Tea, and I am more sympathetic to his vid than I am to that of Woz Lee. That being said, in a recent hangout with Sargon and Vee, K&T said he wanted to see the Russian official allegdly responsible for bringing down the Malaysian airliner over disputed territory in a Dutch court, and, in the above video, he talks about "principles." This gives the impression that K&T is a big fan of Randolph Scott and Jimmy Stewart's Westerns. I am also a big fan of Randolph Scott and Jimmy Stewart (and of Lee Marvin and of Charles Bronson and of Chuck Heston.) I think that they were men of men whose jock straps the Junior G-Men of today, like this Chris Pratt kid, and Ethan Hawke of the embarrassingly bad fucking abortion of a Assault on Precinct 13 remake, are unfit to hold. That being said, I know and understand that Randolph Scott's and Jimmy Stewart's Westerns are complete fiction and that the real world works nothing like that.
Also, K&T does himself no favours by constantly channeling Amon Goeth every time he does a video, as in "Why is the top down? I'm fucking freezing!" K&T may have a mature voice, but he is still a young German, as in a post-1945 German who could not spot Quentin Tarantino's massive goof in Inglourious Basterds wherein his script has Diane Kruger use the post-1945 term "Vorsitzender" instead of the authentic pre-1945 term "Befehlshaber."
Simply contrast K&T's "fuck"-filled video above with the way pre-1945 Germans speak below
The two videos immediately above show that it is entirely possible for Germans--at least pre-1945 Germans--to speak at length without the word "fuck" coming up once. Whatever his merits as regards the cases of Milo and the alt-right, K&T's vids serially show him to be an extremely low-rent calibre of German.
I am most disappointed by Woz Lee's video above. Woz's video, compared to his past videos specifically about #GamerGate, perfectly illustrate the amateurism of the anti-SJW movement of 2017 as a whole. You see, Woz--just like Sargon, it must be admitted in the name of fairness--vehemently condemned the manosphere element that tried to divert The Sarkeesian Effect after the extent of this became fully known, just as a fair-minded person has to give credit to Charmingman93 for condemning a Intar-Webs Page Three Mary Sunshine for exploiting the suicide of a prominent #GamerGate player. On the specific subject of Milo and paedophilia alone, Woz has a better argument than does K&T. For one thing, it was years since Milo made the comments in question regarding "very young boys." Milo being a prominent (although self-professed--and certainly milquetoast compared to the Soldier of Fortune crew, Pat Buchanan and William F. Buckley Jr.) conservative, as well as a known associate of the Martin Bormann-esque Bannon, it is likely that at least one of "the very, very young boys" he describes would have come forward and condemned him by now, the same way Alice Paquette accused Québec provincial legislator Gerry Sklavounos (without evidence) of sexual assault.(as described here on ProblematicPeople.com, one of the sites of Wooly Bumblebee, who is a superb artist in her own right, who is also promoting this rad new site AkkadianTimes.com and who now writes at her own awesome new site Anti-Intellectuals.) Given that none of the "very, very young boys" have come forward as "victims" of Milo, I have to give Woz the point on the specific case of Milo and "very, very young boys" alone.
That being said, Woz does not substantially refute, disprove or even dispute what K&T said about Milo hiring people and then not paying them, which, even if it turns out that Milo is not a party to paedophilia, is damning enough by itself. Furthermore, Woz is highly impassioned in his defence of Milo, as are Sargon, Vee and Freedom Alternative. This is extremely disappointing as far as Woz and Sargon are concerned since they once showed the ability to tell right from wrong by condemning the manosphere for trying to divert The Sarkeesian Effect. The heated nature of their passions for Milo show that Woz, Sargon, Charmingman93, Vee and Freedom Alternative are dismal amateurs who cannot tell when an associate of theirs has become a liability. In this regard, they are all fourth rate, bush-league conservatives compared to the SOF crew, Pat Buchanan and William F. Buckley Jr. In fact, I have more respect for Kraut and Tea and Spinosauruskin (see below), two liberals who called out Milo than I have for the bumbling YouTubes "conservative" wannabes named in the penultimate sentence
Back in the day, Soldier of Fortune very closely reported on Waco. They even promoted a woman named Linda Thompson who made a video about Waco...then proceeded to swiftly and unceremoniously dump and denounce her ass when she started behaving in ways unkosher. SOF's honcho Colonel Robert K. Brown has long been a board member of the National Rifle Association. Yet, he openly spoke to the liberal media to condemn Neal Knox's attempted takeover and diversion of the NRA into a personal empire.
Likewise, Pat Buchanan founded The American Conservative. Like Buchanan, TAC is repulsively sectarian. That being said, on matters political, foreign affairs and trade, TAC is a well-written and informed publication. TAC did have Richard Spencer working for them for a few months, but even they--who have no problem writing Sinn Fein/IRA hagiographies as linked to in the penultimate sentence--could not tolerate Spencer and kicked him to the curb.
William F. Buckley Jr. was as much a sectarian bigot as Pat Buchanan and TAC. But along with his son, the atheist Christopher Buckley, he openly opposed the Iraq War.
Of the above examples, neither Linda Thompson nor Neal Knox nor Richard Spencer had been convicted of any crime at the time they got the boot. Like them, Milo has not been arrested, much less convicted, of any crime. The question becomes, if established, decades-long-in-the-fight conservatives like Soldier of Fortune and The American Conservative had no problem a) recognising that, although friends/associates/coworkers had not been convicted of any crime, said friends/associates/coworkers, by their words and actions still constituted a liability, and b), as a consequence, unceremoniously booting said friends/associates/coworkers forthwith, why can't YouTubes anti-SJW "conservatives" like Sargon, Woz, Charmingman93, Vee and Freedom Alternative do the same?
Is the answer "because Milo is a personal friend and the manosphere was not?" If so, let me use yet another example. Ernst Röhm was a personal friend of Adolf Hitler. Röhm was one of the few people with who Hitler used the familiar you ("du") as opposed to the formal you ("Sie"), even within the ranks of the Party. Yet, when Röhm and the SA leadership became a liability, Hitler unceremoniously ditched them in the 30 June-1 July 1934 Night of the Long Knives. Hitler was a supreme professional politician in this regard, where Sargon, Woz, Charmingman93, Vee and Freedom Alternative remain dismal, contemptible dabblers and dilettantes.
And now, a disclaimer is necessary in relation to the preceding paragraph. Recognising that Hitler possessed a political acumen that Sargon, Woz, Charmingman93, Vee and Freedom Alternative so manifestly lack is not at all the same thing as saying that I approve of Hitler's alt right race realist manosphere-type murder of the Jews. I condemn Hitler's murder of the Jews with a vehemence exactly identical to that with which I condemn the manosphere for denying the Holocaust and perpetuating the "Juden-Bolshevismus" fraud.
Let me give yet another example. In the 1970's, Ulster Defence Regiment officer Colin Wallace identified a member of the Loyal Orange Insitution named William McGrath--who was also a member of an illegal, proscribed loyalist paramilitary group--as being the leader of a paedophile ring around the Kincora boys' home. Unbeknownst to Mr. Wallace at the time was the fact that McGrath was also an asset for MI5, Britain's internal security service. As a result of his grassing on their man, MI5 had Colin Wallace framed for a murder he did not commit, and for which he was later exonerated. There is no record of MI5 ever severing its links to McGrath despite Colin Wallace's exposing him as a paedophile. The Loyal Orange Institution was another story. The Lodge of which McGrath had been a member expelled him and then disbanded as a result of being associated with him. MI5 operates no matter what the public thinks of them and who they associate with. The Loyal Orange Institution--like all mature, responsible conservative groups, on the other hand--recognises when a member becomes a liability and it takes care of business in this regard. This is why, in 2017, although my problem relationship with Buckfast renders me ineligible for membership, I, as a conservative, have a far greater respect for the Loyal Orange Institution as a genuinely conservative organisation than I do for self-professed "conservative" debutantes Sargon, Woz Lee, Charmingman93, Vee and Freedom Alternative.
And now for the more than-"slightly amusing" part...
Now, I did paraphrase Dice to say that "Listening to 2017 YouTubes anti-SJWs is like masturbating with a cheese grater, slightly amusing but mostly painful." I have laid out the "mostly painful" aspect across several paragraphs. Let me know point out the "slightly amusing" aspect.
Sargon and Vee, you see, have their knickers in a twist over recent WikiLeeks revelations that Christians-In-Action have the ability to spy on people via their yuppie yappers and smart TV's.
Sargon even hyperventilates to say that this "big reveal" means that Christians-In-Action killed some Buzzfeed journalist they did not like.
To be honest, this is more than "slightly amusing." It amuses me to no end. Sargon and Vee must think that The Matt Bourne movies are documentaries. They evidently missed the point underscored in both the book and the filim 13 Hours that Christians-In-Action no longer takes care of business in a hands-on manner, leaving that to retired special duties personnel, while actual full-patch Christians-In-Action personnel sit around embassies and consulates in bad Hawaiian shirts, khaki Kevin Smith shpants and sandals and talk to their assets on the radio, their pudgy hands trembling at the thought that they may have to handle their revolvers without ear protection. Stateside Christians-In-Action personnel come in at 9AM, Starbucks in hand, wearing Armani suits, and do PowerPoint until COB and the ensuing happy hour. Christians-In-Action has been this way since the late and unlamented Frank Church, and then Carter's ban on assassinations, destroyed the old CIA run by former Jeds like Bill Colby. Circa 9/11, the head of Christians-In_action, far from being someone like Colby who was well experienced at firing his revolver without ear protection and at non-paper targets, was George Tenet, a former busboy who got the job because he got himself an MBA. Far from assassinating people left and right, Christians-In-Action field agent Bob Baer was damn near charged with capital murder just because he overheard someone talking about assassinating a hostile foreign leader.
But, all laughs at Sargon and Vee--as powerful as these laughs admittedly are--aside, there are a couple of things about this "revelation" that those of us who have been around a while spotted a mile off.
First, Dick Marcinko reported in the 1990's--i.e. two decades ago--that No Such Agency then had inserted a listening device into every extant communication device. And the reason you think this practice was somehow discontinued "because current year" is...because you are a bafoon who professes to be an atheist/skeptic, yet accepts everything WikiLeeks shits out as Divine Revelation.
Second--and here, it is hard to keep a straight face--the federal agency responsible for ELINT and SIGINT (ELectronic INTelligence and SIGnals INTelligence) is...not Christians In Action, but rather No Such Agency. This is something that thems of us whose understanding of these matters comes from things other than Hollywood and the Intar Webs knew...decades ago.
WikiLeeks, Sargon and Vee have all been massively and hilariously trolled by someone in the US Government who, like me and everyone else who has been around a while, is laughing their asses off at the idea of this "revelation" being taken seriously. Sargon said that Edward Snowden "confirmed the authenticity" of this "revelation." Edward Snowden worked for No Such Agency. Him "confirming the authenticity" of something purportedly coming from Christians-In-Action--a rival agency, in case you have not grasped it--is akin to a California Highway Patrolman "confirming the authenticity" of an NYPD MOS' 61. Not to mention that, with Trump looking like he wants to warm relations with Putin, Snowden is desperate as hell to continue his Russian vacation away from the prying noses of the US DOJ, which renders him liable to saying a lot of things that sound spectacular.
I remain a conservative and not a social justice jihadist. That being said, YouTubes anti-SJW gods-in-their-own-minds are too embarrassingly bush league for me to have anything more to do with.
