Narrative Warfare: This Coordinated Hitpiece Volley Is Familiar

Fake journalists in entertainment media are not the only ones who run private email lists to coordinate Narrative-shaping hits.

The hacks got it from their betters, the higher-status hacks at the "papers of record" (glorified blogs now), and this is the proof: first, that there's a pre-existing term for the practice ("astroturf") and that it follows the exact same pattern as that infamous "Gamers Are Dead" volley of bullshit that lead to #Gamergate. Short take: all of the mainstream media has no ethics.

This is pure propaganda, bought and paid-for, and reveals by behavior both the preference of those buying the propaganda as well as the true nature of "journalism" as a profession. Streewalking whores have higher ethical standards than what we've seen today out of the media.

What makes this instance notable is two-fold: that is it so blatantly obvious as a coordinated hitpiece volley, and that it is a laughably pathetic one that works only to members of the SJW Death Cult. The most this will do is signal to the ever-anxious school of fish which way to turn, and therefore whom to savage for stepping out of line.

This past week the Supreme Dark Lord, Vox Day, joined comicbook veteran Ethan Van Scriver on the latter's channel for a live talk on #Comicsgate, #Gamergate, the SJW menace and what to do about it. While long, it's a wealth of wisdom from both men on the matters at hand- particularly how Vox Day compares the SJW Death Cult to a school of fish in its psychology. It's worth your time. Embedded below.

And that's not all; because Vox Day has plenty of experience with SJWs he's figured out why they do what they do, which explains things like the reliance upon secret email lists and coordinated media attacks on targets that appear vulnerable (some of which hit, as we saw with Scarlett Johansson and Papa Johns this week). But the days that they can keep on doing this successfully are numbered.

They continue to use the same playbook, even as more people see it in ation and thus can't unsee it thereafter, because they are constitutionally incapable of doing anything else- it doesn't work to relieve the stress that their existential terror wreaks upon them. It's not about logic, reason, or even dogma- it's about sheer existential terror, and the propitiation thereof (because they are powerless to actually destroy what threatens them so).

How do you deal with this? The way the God-Emperor does: go on the attack, and go for maximum pain. That's the only way, short of crippling or killing them, to reliably shut them down. Watch the God-Emperor no-sell this hitpiece attack and then keep hammering them with "Fake News". It's brilliant, and it shows in how they fall over themselves to flail ineffectually in response. He's making Empire fall, and showing how fun it can be. Who wants to pass that party up?

Narrative Warfare: This is What "Fork & Replace" Looks Like

Today Vox Day gave another commentary on how the shit grunts of Empire, the Social Justice Warriors, routinely end up showing their ass when they attempt to BadFeel their enemies into compliance by throwing "alt-right" at them like it's a bad thing. Enjoy yourself, folks. It's amusing, but the serious news is buried well into the post:

Two weeks ago I signed an agreement with a movie producer. We've since had a number of meetings with various organizations and I can state with some confidence that we will be skipping the whole "option" phase and go directly to making the movies and/or television shows ourselves in partnership with people who know what they are doing. Some of these scenarios involve crowdfunding and backer participation, others do not. We are also discussing the creation of a major new comics imprint with one or two partners and are in the process of completing Chuck Dixon's Avalon #1, after which we will launch our comic store campaign with the assistance of the VFM and the Dark Legion.

I expect that there will be a full press release when the details of the agreement are final, the contracts signed, and the move gets into motion- at which point it will be far too late for the Thralls of Empire to do a goddamn thing about it that's actually going to work.

What I want to bring to your attention is what this move is: Fork & Replace in action.

With the launch of Alt-Hero and Arkhaven Comics, Vox Day launched an attempt to fork the Western (North American, at this point) comicbook industry and its cultural influence off of the dying Big Two of Marvel and D.C. (and the also-rans in their shadow) which have long ago fallen to Empire and are now zombie concerns riddled with the maggots known as SJWs doing their very best to spread the memetic disease that Empire must maintain to be able to sustain itself.

The goal of the Fork is to create an alternative to the diseased branch and grow it into a competitor ready and willing to fully fill the void created when Empire's Thralls consume their host and make it collapse into ashes and dust. This is Replacement, and it is the explicit and avowed goal of the enterprise.

There is more to the overall operation than just the comics business, as we are now seeing come into view. Forking and Replacing the Western film and television business is a far greater undertaking, and will take longer to accomplish, but so long as this course can be maintained and the discipline to see it through holds fast then that will happen. As noted in the linked post, that sector is also collapsing and will fall into ruin soon enough of its own accord. (Fools like Culty Kathy at Lucasfilm just accelerate it.)

And I am pleased to see this happen. It signals that there is a breach in this front of the Culture War, one that we'd be fools to not exploit, and I'm already acting on that opportunity on both individual and collective ways. The days of Debbie Downers drabbing all dour and depressing are done; it's time to form up, lock shields, and break the enemies upon the shield wall- and then we advance, as one, crushing them underfoot as we impale them on our spears- all while singing joyful songs of brotherhood and victory.

We've been shown the way, folks. Time to get on with saving Civilization at the moral level. Now we shall turn back on them their cry: "We Shall Replace You!"

Narrative Warfare: Vox Day, "Don't Talk to the Media"

This Darkstream is vital for anyone, regardless of your politics or where you live, who is not in lock-step with the media.

This here is the core point:

"It doesn't even matter what you do or what you say, the narrative is already written, the story has already been laid out. All they're doing now when they talk to you is getting kill quotes and getting words that they can then spin to claim that they've given you a fair shake. You see, when they contact you, what they tell you is that they want to give you your chance to tell your side of the story, and the thing is, the clear implication is already there! You know, they're already signalling what they're going to do to you because the other side of the story, the story that is not your side of the story, is the narrative."

Listen to the whole thing. It's worse than it's ever been, so I now accept the same position of total non-contact. This is not idle posturing on my part; if my literary ambitions take off, then I'm going to attract more media attention from the same vultures and I do not want those rancid frauds anywhere near me or mine. (And, in Minnesota, I can and will file criminal charges if they try this crap; "Criminal Defamation" is a thing here.)

This is Narrative Warfare 101, folks. The media has the platform with the reach to shape public opinion, and while they are in the downward spiral now that doesn't mean they are not dangerous. Don't feed the beast. It's no different than not giving money to those who hate you. While I have legal recourse that doesn't require civil suits to leverage, most of you don't; by freezing them out entirely, not even responding to requests, you force them to work with weaksauce Wokeness word salad to attack you. That makes dealing with them much easier.

(Of course, if you can nail them with criminal charges, do so and enjoy the perpwalks; turn that "process is punishment" back on them.)

Vox lays it out here:

"And what they want you to do is they want you to play defense to their prosecuting attorney. That's the whole idea! You are there to be the subject of the interrogation and they are the stars who are prosecuting you. Now, of course that's why they want to talk to you! They don't need you to verify any facts, they will completely ignore anything that you say if you manage to somehow miraculously defang and conclusively disprove an assertion that was part of their narrative."

Editing is a hell of a drug. The power to make anyone say anything you want is a potent one when talking media, and far too many take what they see and hear in the media as factual without question. However, the more people become aware of Narrative Warfare and how it works the less effective this basic approach becomes. Just pretend that the media is that hot chick with the crazy eyes: stay away- it's never worth it to get with that. Stay clear; Empire is falling.

The Thralls of Empire Surge Forth to the Rubicon

Well, this sounds like sane, reasonable and eu-civic speech from a Federal elected official. And by "sane", I mean "full-tilt bozo".

There is only one response that clear communicates the quality of this development.

Look, I could spend long paragraphs full of facts, data, preceding examples, and so on but I know damn well that Dialectic doesn't reach 90% of the population so I'm going to get to the point.

Frank--that's the guy in the video--their parents are the ones that got this bullshit started. That's why it's so bad.

And the real delusion? That this is somehow a thing that only SJWs and their pals get do so, and it won't get out of control.

Yeah, this will end well. So very fucking well. If the lawfare doesn't get them, the real law will: the Law of Nature. And why should we be surprised? The birth--and rebirth--of nations always comes with a price, one paid only in blood, bone, and fire. Why in the hell should this be any different?

Bring it, morons. If you are fortunately, you will only fill the prisons well past capacity. Pray to be fortunate. Because this? This is what a lack of mercy from a lawful people shall feel like if you are not.

Bring it, heretic. We await you on the other side of the Rubicon.

We Need Alt-Banking: SJWs in Silicon Valley Deplatform Freestartr

One week after I set up at this site, and launch my crowdfunding campaign to finish my first novel, what you're going to read below went down. I reproduce this in its entirety. Link for the doubters here.

I thought I might share a few thoughts with you on what I regard as the biggest issue of our time: tech apartheid.

Silicon Valley wants you to believe that it is a force for good but the evidence of its bias and fraudulent dealings couldn’t be more obvious even to a fair, impartial observer.

Most recently this duplicity concerns payment processing, namely the fraudulent company Stripe which canceled FreeStartr’s account despite record low chargebacks. FreeStartr wasn’t alone. All of those companies who had their accounts suspended — Bitchute (a YouTube competitor), MakerSupport (a Patreon competitor), and (a Patreon, Kickstarter competitor)– were created by Trump supporters.

This canceling of our business was done for political reasons by Edwin Wee, a Democratic political operative turned Stripe employee, and it exposes the libertarian lie that one can simply just go and create a competitor if one dislikes Silicon Valley ventures. You can’t. We need to get over that canard.

I’ll delve into the parochial issues concerning FreeStartr’s banning from Stripe later, but I am thoroughly convinced that if action isn’t taken in the very near future, our politics will be permanently titled to the far left for the foreseeable future. Ask your congressmen, your friends, to speak out on this issue and take necessary corrections.

We’ve had other discussions about the censorship and Google, Facebook, and Twitter, and yes, those trends are extremely worrisome. But what I’m talking about here as concerns Stripe and PayPal is far more dangerous both for politics and for our society writ large.

Every regime has scapegoats, and ours is no different. Whether you’ve participated in a Twitter mob and/or been its target, you know its power. Ours is a herd based species, and it is quite disturbing the speed with which mores can shift. What was once commonplace — big game hunting, smoking, corporal punishment, etc., — become frowned upon, then the province of cranks, and ultimately unthinkable. There is increasingly good social science evidence for how this process unfolds — where a small minority changes the standards of behavior in a population. Sometimes these changes are so abrupt as to be jarring and yes, even violent. Twitter mobs force you off of their platforms and begin the practice of targeting your employment, your spouse’s employment, etc. until you are ruined. There is no due process here.

This is not dissimilar from the ancient punishments of exile or death. To be fired from your job for your politics constitutes a kind of death; it is certainly a form of exile. This kind of tribalism terrorism will undoubtedly increase precisely because it is so effective at cowing the other side and the costs of the targeting are so cheap.

Stopping this violence is very important, but I fear ultimately futile if we no longer have standards.

So let me be clear about mine. What stands for is the culture that undergirds the U.S. Constitution, particularly the Bill of Rights. That culture might be elusive to the Stripe co-founders, Patrick and John Collison, who were born in Ireland so permit me to America-splain.

The First Amendment isn’t just for the loon on the street corner; it must ultimately apply to the tech companies. The Second Amendment isn’t for muskets; it must apply to AR-15s. The Fourth Amendment isn’t just for papers but for electronic surveillance.

And yes, the Sixth Amendment is useless if you don’t have the means of paying for your defense, whether through patronage, piggy banks, or your own fundraising. We Americans believe that everyone is entitled to his day in court. Our history is replete with the good winning out in court against all the odds.

Spending your money as you want is as American as barbecue on Independence Day. You have the right to do whatever you want with your consumerism or generosity. We are a generous people. It is this insight on which I built Freestartr with Stripe as a partner. I hid Stripe’s involvement with our site because Stripe asked me to and together we have raised millions for legal defenses for the marginalized. I kept quiet our business relationship because I know Stripe is colonized by far left liberals.

Stripe, by barring, is denying all of the people who have raised money and all of the people who might raise money their day in court. It’s un-American. Even the Nazis got lawyers at Nuremberg. And some of those lawyers were even Jews. But not in Silicon Valley.

Stripe’s action is likely illegal. Banks aren’t allowed to just bar customers, especially after President Trump abolished Operation Chokepoint. Patrick Collison, Stripe’s CEO, opposes Operation Chokepoint.

Stripe seems to be deliberately shutting down businesses whose politics it doesn’t like. Political orientation is a protected category in California. There have been cases brought against businesses that refuse to serve conservatives or liberals. Why not Stripe?

If Stripe’s move isn’t illegal, it is certainly fraudulent.

John Collison, the co-founder of Stripe, personally assured me once on the phone and once in the home of a Silicon Valley venture capitalist that Stripe would allow FreeStartr to operate so long as we comply with the law.

“The tech industry has to be a place where anyone of any background can thrive,” Patrick Collison, his brother, once claimed to Bloomberg on May 31st.

Not if you are a white male conservative.

The brothers Collison are frauds and liars.

Worse yet, they seem to be attracting other frauds and perhaps criminals.

Stripe, PayPal, and Square are working with the Southern Poverty Law Center, a discredited linked to at least one terrorist organization.

The way the Southern Poverty Law Center works is that they declare everyone whose politics they don’t like to be Nazis or racists.

The demand for Nazis or racists vastly exceeds their supply, so some people are caught up in the crossfire, sometimes literally in the case of the shooter who fired upon members of Congress and their staff playing baseball.

Until this group is investigated for the criminal fraud it has perpetrated on donors it will continue to harm others.

~ Charles C. Johnson, CEO FreeStartr

We need Alt-Banking. NOW.

Chuck, if you read this, you've got to get on that immediately. Of all the folks like you out there you've got the most direct experience with payment processors so you're most likely to know how to get up and running in that business. If non-SJWs can't count on the existing processors, then non-SJWs have to roll their own and prefer it over all others.

I saw this coming. The next fallback position will be banking proper, not just payment processing, forcing us to form our own credit unions and banks. The absurd extreme will be denial of access to legal tender itself, coupled with other regulations meant to strip non-SJWs of their ability to participate in the economy without bending the knee and drinking the demon's blood- the Mark of the Beast.

I'll be okay in the short term; if Freestartr can't be unfucked, I'll ask backers to seek released on the holds for their pledged money, move to another competitor (IndieGoGo seems to be the best backup option) and try again there. But as the squeeze tightens, I expect to have to resort to more old-school means of fund-raising, the sort that involves cashier's checks and Certified Mail.

I'm doing my part to make Empire fall. I won't be knocked out by backstabbers screwing over a crowdfunding site for political reasons. I'd complain to my Congressman, but my guy is the Muslim--Keith Ellison--and he's known to be just fine with this shit (as he is an open Antifa supporter), so no dice there. Instead, I'll focus on Making Space Opera Great Again because that's what I can do right now that's useful while I look out for people who can handle the need to do Alt-Banking.

On the Power of Rhetoric: "Razorfist: Hollywood Was Always Red"

This past week, Razorfist posted a 30 minute video demonstrating that Hollywood was always a Thrall of Empire.

I talked about it on the main blog, but this bears a second post because it does something terribly needed: expose a historical fraud. So much of what we're told is not merely wrong, but a deliberate fraud- a lie promulgated to advance an agenda. In this case, the advancement and maintenance of Communist power in the United States. (Still a threat; the U.S.S.R. is gone and the P.R.C. is so in name only--it's really another Imperial regime--but Communism endures, just under one or another front.)

The Reds (these days the SJWs and fellow travelers) have always understood the power of media and culture as the bedrock of popular power, so they have always moved to seize these first when establishing themselves in a target for conquest. They know, if not in such words, that only a small percentage of people are open to Dialectic reasoning--with its focus on stats, facts, data, etc.--and so they rightly reason that mastering Rhetoric (which is what myth, legend, gossip, etc. do) is the superior form of persuasive power.

You doubt this?

This weekend is the time of the E3 event for the videogame world. Each and every pre-show conference is being streamed live, often with commentary. Pay close attention to what is persuasive and what is not; pay attention to what symbolism is used and to what end- all of it is Rhetoric. What seems to be Dialectic is really Rhetoric, because none of those trivia items has any purchase without the firm reception gained by emotional manipulation. All of that comes out of Hollywood, and far too many in videogames are Reds so you'll see that bullshit getting pushed here and there (and not as well as in the days of Old Hollywood).

Dialectic should be reserved for hammering out the details. Rhetoric is what you need to use to get to that victory and keep it once you got it. Just go talk to campaign managers and political science professors; the competent ones will confirm this to be true, which is why so much of what you see in the media is as much a work as the feuding you see at a professional wrestling event. Learning how to see through that glamor, and break that enchantment, is vital to making Empire fall.

Signs of the Circus Coming to a Close

If you honestly thought otherwise, then you need to adjust your usage to protect your privacy. There is a way around Two-Factor Authentication, amongst other issues.

For most of you, what the popular experts recommend to deal with it will be sufficient. Why? Because the predators that would target you aren't going to be sophisticated enough to use this due to you not being worth the effort to do so. You have to worry about big institutional users such as government agencies; if you get on their radar, you're screwed and need to use other means to remain secure.

The problem going forward is that what it will take to get on the radar will diminish over time. Empire's Thralls are in trouble, and with that trouble comes the deployment of assets to protect them against hostiles- and that means you. As the God-Emperor and his allies rachet up the pain, Empire responds with its Thralls acting out where they find soft targets. You are softer than the God-Emperor or his allies, so they'll come after you because they won't be able to get them.

Be prepared to shift your behaviors and operations accordingly.
