The Left has always relied on its ability to unite a disparate coalition of identities and interest groups against a common enemy. The common enemy is often called different things depending on the context, but it nearly always boils down to middle class people of European origin, particularly men. They have had success after success for years with this strategy as they successfully converged at times diametrically opposed sexual, gender, economic, religious and racial identity groups into a democratically viable electorate that kept the wheel of “progress” turning.
Now though, the political weaponisation of victim complexes, and the inability for any leader on the left to de-escalate the rhetoric of any particular faction without being seen as suppressing that group, means that cracks are starting to appear.
My first example is from none other than Australia’s most popular export (and by that I meant it was popular when she exported herself) Yassmin Abdel-Magied.
Has no one told Yassmin? Does she not understand that the Left still needs the votes of white women in order to be electorally viable?
You can’t just take the incentive of virtue signalling your progressiveness away from white women, otherwise they won’t vote Left!
The progressive forces still need them to believe that they are the victims of Western society. They have spent almost 70 years telling them this and if we try and tell them that it’s not true now, they might wonder what else their education system and pop culture lied to them about.
Yassmin, please! Think before you tweet! Don’t you know that Islamophobia is a term concocted by Leftists to be applied to non-Leftists only. Non-Leftist in this case being anyone who is worried about a religion that is diametrically opposed to the Western way of life. You can’t just apply that term to Leftists! If you take away the ability of inner-urbanites to signal their intellectual xenophilia than how the hell are they meant to feel more cultured and sophisticated (and disconnected) from their right-ward voting countrymen!
What about how the Muslim Political Action Committee has stated in relation to the gay marriage survey that “MPAC supports the No vote on the basis that marriage constitutes the union between a man and a woman, and is the best way to structure the family unit for the overall benefit of society,” and “MPAC is concerned that if same-sex marriage is permitted, attempts will be made to introduce into schools in particular, programs that families may not be free to opt out of on moral or religious grounds.”
Hmm not very progressive of them…MPAC’s efforts will probably be thwarted this time, although long term I believe the Left will be certainly taking on a more Middle Eastern approach to politics in order to gather up a particularly fertile voting demographic segment.
Finally, check out this video for some truly enlightening antifa v antifa banter, skip to 0.50.
Poor little scumbag, he just joined Antifa to fight Nazis like college professors and celebrities told him to, and now the brown people who are meant to thank him for his good work are accusing him of only participating in the movement to aid his white privileged morality, terming it “performativeness”.
“You’re still white, you’re still responsible. This is your fault, you’re inherently racist. It’s in your blood. It’s in your DNA”
I think this particular individual is too cucked to consider the error of his ways, but it’s certainly not good PR for Antifa. Don’t they realise that at least for now whites are still the majority in Western countries? Calling even the most extreme Left wing whites “racists” might make actually make them realise that the Left is only using bourgeois college kid leftist types as a temporary voter demographic to facilitate the growth of government and demographic displacement. Perhaps they have turned up the anti-white rhetoric a little too fast, and I doubt that it assists their attempts to take down the capitalistic patriarchy that is Western civilisation.
In any event, I can’t help but feel this lack of central control of the Left over itself and its supporters will only lead to more extreme and radical policies and actions. In closing, I’ll let Yeats describe the process.
The Second Coming
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
