One thing you should keep realizing is how points made here seem to tell the future.
For example, it looked a little funny to some people that, when I was concentrating on race, I had a lot of space on the nature of institutions. Now we are running into a situation where American Renaissance must be understood as an institution.
In the early 1960s the very idea of a conservative getting air time was intolerable. All political discussions on national TV consisted of two liberal Democrats and one or two liberal Republicans.
Two SEPARATE things happened. First, conservatives stopped being purely defensive and began to denounce the shibboleths of liberalism openly. By 1968 Nixon and Wallace had an overwhelming majority of the vote.
This was undermined, not by a Conspiracy meeting in Lower Broscupal or somewhere, but by a natural tendency. Liberals, who owned the media both literally and figuratively, chose conservative “opponents” they felt comfortable with.
The result was surprisingly effective for the left. Conservatives survived professionally if they looked like all-out opponents to their own featherheads but gave the other side what it needed.
Respectable conservatives have taken on a role as RATIFIERS of liberal policy. No one denounces “reactionaries” and “racist” as loudly as the professional right. But this obedience is not the big thing, the ratification.
Leftist policies go through many years of being denounced by professional conservatives. But, inevitably, the day when they can say, “Even conservative columnist George Will” or “even William Buckley now agree that…”
This means the policy has now become that of “both sides,” and there is no room for further debate.
Anyone who listened to part of the debate Jared was part of in Canada can see how this could easily happen to pro-white institutions. From the first word, Jared conceded and conceded and conceded, not by statements but by silence.
And silence is the other side’s weapon.
If there is a policy in place to wipe your race off the face of the earth and you join with the other side in refusing to mention, that it is too radical, it is ratification. I have no suspicion that Jared and friends are doing this on purpose.
They are just politically naïve.
I have been in the midst of things while politically naïve conservatives became the best friends leftism ever had.
