Interesting YouTube Channel: Renegade Cut

September 29, 2019 11 comments

A few months ago, I came across yet another interesting channel, known as Renegade Cut, which uses movies and TV shows to analyse philosophical ideas and ideologies. While I don’t agree with everything on that channel, some of the content makes sense and is thought-provoking. Here are two clips which many of you might find particularly interesting.

Clip #1: Saturday Neoliberalism This one uses short clips from SNL (the “comedy” show) over multiple decades to show how all of the so-called “subversive” comedy in neoliberal countries such as USA was, and is, always about commercial considerations than being truly subversive or standing up to power and money. It explains why shows such as SNL loved HRC in 2016 while dumping on Bernie and has hated Trump since his election. The explanation also holds for all those other “celebrities” who expose supposedly LIEbral causes.

Clip #2: Frank Grimes – The Cult of Work The second one uses the famous character of Frank Grimes in “The Simpsons’ to show how CONservatives view the world around them. It provides some very interesting insight into why those losers fetishize “work” and who they scapegoat for everything wrong with the world. To make a long story short, CONservatives willingly suffer from multiple delusions including the one where they will all attain salvation, also known as becoming rich.There is a reason, I have always found CONservatives a bit more detestable than LIEbrals.

Western ‘Leftists’ are Only Slightly Less Despicable than CONservatives

May 5, 2019 7 comments

Regular readers are well aware of my utter dislike, contempt and hatred for all CONservatives- regardless of their race and social class. The world would be a far better place if all of them and their progeny ceased on exist, one fine day. Many of you are also aware that I am no fan of so-called ‘liberals’ or as I like to call them, LIEbrals- because they are basically CONservatives who expouse socially progressive-sounding causes largely because they are a bit ashamed of being perceived as knuckle-draggers. In other words, LIEbrals are CONservatives who are not retarded and exhibit a basic level of self-consciousness, if only to project themselves as more “deserving” of their station in life. LIEbrals = we are better than southern and flyover state white-trash.

Let me now talk about the other group who I detest- though not with the intensity reserved for CONservatives and LIEbrals. I am talking about western ‘Leftists’ aka the losers with more self-conciousness than LIEbrals and CONservatives. But why dislike people that are kinda better than either LIEbrals and CONservatives. Aren’t they an improvement of some sort or at least a change in the right direction? Well.. they are, but it is not enough. See.. white people in early 20th century USA were ‘better’ than their counterparts from 300 or even 100 years prior. Unlike their predecessors, they did not bury women for witchcraft, openly practice slavery, enthusiastically support genocide of native people and were on threshold of extending voting rights to women.

However they still strongly believed in their alleged “racial superiority”, put considerable effort into immiserating black and other non-white people, did many nauseating things in support of maintaining racial purity, were the inspiration for Hitler and his Nazis and were otherwise a fairly loathsome bunch of people. Some of you might say that we should judge them by the standards of their era rather than contemporary ones. Fair enough.. but then shouldn’t we also judge Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan by the standards of first half of 20th century- which was a pretty dismal time in human history with all those other genocides, two world wars, inter-war conflicts, forced population exchanges etc. My point is, you have to draw the line somewhere.

So what do I despise about western ‘Leftists’? How are my views on them similar or different from those about LIEbrals and CONservatives? Well.. for starters, my feelings towards western ‘Leftists’ are rooted in dislike and contempt rather than hatred. Which is another way of saying that my major beef with them is about how they think, behave and see the world rather than their broader goals. So I am perfectly fine with legal equality irrespective of race and sex, socialism and wealth redistribution, decentralization and preventing public and private rent-seekers, progressive income and wealth tax-funded healthcare and education, non-corporate controlled universal basic income, legalization of drugs and prostitution, right to choose etc

At this point, some of you might throw up your hands and say “so why do you despise western ‘Leftists’ if you support the majority of their stated goals?”. Well.. keep reading.

1] The biggest problem with western ‘Leftists” today concerns their real identity and motivations. Contemporary western “leftists” are, by and large, careerist petite bourgeoisie. Almost every single prominent western ‘Leftist’ today seems to be somebody with multiple degrees in the liberal arts who spends an inordinate amount of effort trying to convince others that they alone are morally upright and virtuous.When is the last time you met a prominent western ‘Leftist’ who actually performed work which did not involve writing clever-sounding articles, books or indulging in scholarly-sounding pontification. Leftism was once a movement of the working classes, you know.. people who work to make a living. Today it is mostly a movement of weaselly apple-polishers trying to use ideology to advance their own career.

2] The current crop of western ‘Leftists’ (at least well-known ones) are almost exclusively derived from the professional upper-middle or aspiring middle class. They have no interest in problems of people from other.. should we say.. more ‘icky’ classes. They would rather protest for the right of transgender men to use female restrooms than bother with concrete proposals to eliminate racial discrimination in healthcare, housing and the so-called ‘criminal justice’ system. They believe that gender equality is achieved when more white women are hired in armed forces so that they can go half-way around the world to kill some more brown people. For them, a just immigration system is one which allows enough poor and desperate people into the country so they can then hire those same people at low wages to clean houses and take care of their kids.

3] It gets worse. There is, you see, a considerable overlap between LIEbrals and western ‘Leftists’. Indeed, one of the easiest way for a LIEbral to elevate his or her social standing today (at least in their mind) is by supporting allegedly progressive causes- but only fashionable ones. So dressing your 6-year old non-stereotypical male child as a girl because ‘she’ could be trans is the socially appropriate way of showing one’s “wokeness”. However these same people will do nothing beyond pay some lip service for issues such as children without adequate healthcare, housing or food- because those things are associated with ‘icky’ people. They will donate some cheap toys to a charity around Christmas rather than ask why such ‘charity’ is necessary.

4] Western ‘Leftists’ are overwhelmingly white and the few minorities in their ranks are there for the grift.. I mean career advancement. Face it, nowadays you cannot have a self-congratulatory award ceremony or banquets where people give each other prizes for “empowering” each other without a few non-white faces. Look at how far we have come.. a corporation which extorts many thousands of desperate people while awarding billions to its upper management has finally hired a Black, Asian or Indian CEO? And he or she is also gay.. how “woke”! What about those tens of thousands extorted people. Well.. it is all due to the “free market” and we cannot do anything about it. And remember.. everything can be “fixed” with neoliberal wonkery and “data science”.

5] One of the most amusing, and telling, aspect of the contemporary western ‘Leftist’ mindset is how easily they stop supporting a cause when systematically abused and victimized people resort to a little violence. According to these ‘Leftists’ a group of black people protesting systemic abuse and occasional murder by white cops become unworthy if they break even a single shop window. Did I mention how strongly these ‘Leftists’ believe in “gun control” or how they insist everyone should respect “authority” and “experts”. Or how they masturbate over shitty Tesla electric cars, the latest puff-piece about “machine learning” or “artificial intelligence”.. basically anything that is seen as fashionable and “woke” enough. In other words, western “Leftism” = performance art.

6] Western ‘Leftists’ never stop giving useless or bad advice to non-white people and people in non-white countries- who find it darkly comic. These ‘Leftists’ want everyone else to give up their lifestyle and conveniences for the “environment” and to prevent “climate change” but are loath to change anything significant about their own lifestyle. And remember, you are a ‘heretic’ and ‘denier’ if you doubt the veracity of this central sacrament of their secular apocalyptic cult. Of course, they could just come out and admit that they are racist and part of a declining and rapidly diminishing race. But as we all know, western ‘Leftists’ are all post-racial, totally non-patronizing group of very “diverse”, “woke” and “highly educated” people- who can never make a mistake and give awesome TEDx presentations.

In summary, much of what passes for ‘Leftism’ in the west today is reformulated LIEbralism with new buzzwords and more performance art. Ironically, this does not fool anybody outside their group. And now you know why I find them despicable and repulsive, though somewhat less so than generic LIEbrals and CONservatives.
