Stefan in the middle

12

A follow up to my article last week on Gavin McInnes and his craven pandering to his prog masters that he so obediently serves. In the article I stated the following:

“The reason that I go after these guys is that they are not on our side. They are not on the Left’s side either, because they are on their own side. Their side is their respective edgy careers which they cultivate at our own expense. They are worse than the Left because at least the Left have the dim courage to pick a side. The edgytarians throw the Right under a bus at the very first sign that their online careers are at risk of being pulled.”

I also mentioned Stefan Molynieux in passing in the piece but I didn’t focus on him as all the love was going to Gav. But keep the above quote from yours truly in mind when you read the following tweet:

Roissy has already given this rubbish a severe take down, referring to it as an “argumentum ad technicalitum, a favorite pastime of disingenuous shitlibs and scaredy-cat libertarians.”

These guys are really struggling to remain relevant and it’s not going well for them.

Also struggling to remain relevant are many players in the media which are collectively going down like a fluffer with a knee injury.

“This morning, I noted the “Get Woke, Go Broke” factor in the failure of Mic-dot-com — which burned through $60 million in startup capital and was sold for $5 million — and a similar observation may be made about the woes of the Weekly Standard.”

What I’m observing is that the fence sitters, grifters, and parasites in the media are starting to have severe problems. And that’s because the battle lines are becoming sharper. Conservatism and liberalism are both dead, only many of their adherents don’t know it yet. What’s left are the two extremes as there is no place for a soft and safe middle any more. It’s going to get ugly.

    Both Gavin and Stefan seem to be going pretty strong to me. When’s your next speaking tour Adam?

      We don’t need overseas guests to tell us how to be Australian Nationalists.

        Well, they don’t seem to do it very well (One Nation, etc). They seem to split more than amoebas. It’s worth these people coming and supporting them just to spite the left, and let the rest of the public see the lefts reaction for the violent terrorists they are. Let them all come, its all good.

          And line the pockets of seppos – no thanks

          And that there is the problem….

          We have the usual spastics on the left who have a choice of mainly three parties (ALP/Communist + Greens/Communists + More-openly-socialist/Communists) with preferences going back to the ALP.

          Conservatives, on the other hand, have the LNP (Labor Lite) or One Nation (which will implode again in the near future); Katter Party (which has started the conversion to Labor Lite); The Liberal Democrats (who I personally support); the Australian Conservatives (Bernadi); the various shooters and fishers parties; etc etc etc – all with preferences that don’t go back to anyone in particular because of the refusal to reward mismanagement in the other parties.

          The first thing that needs to be done for anyone who follows a conservative ideal is to completely ignore the LNP and then cast their vote to their conscience with preferences going to a party that won’t implode.

          In my opinion, that is either the LDP or the Bernadi Conservatives. I could be wrong but that’s the way I see it being resolved of us getting away from the revolving-door-PM thing and further away from the economic mismanagement and “De-Australianizing” of the Left.

    Conservatism and liberalism are both dead. Print that out and put it on your fridge.

    Leftists pick a side because they’re conformist collectivists. It doesn’t take courage to follow the herd.

    You go after successful centre-right personalities to get attention and show you’re the edgiest edgelord.

      The surest way to get on Adams bad side and have him write a hit-piece on you is to express a similar point of view to him. Reminds me of those kids at school would get sulky that everyone discovered their favourite band.

        Adam went full sperg when JP linked one of his articles, now he spends his days chasing e-celebrity.

        Ironically, it’s Peterson’s validation that made him this way.
