Today’s post arises from a conversation I’ve been having with Patrick Cappadocia on Facebook. It started with this article from the Guardian, which claims that Russia is stoking refugee unrest in the hopes of toppling German chancellor Angela Merkel. It’s not as crazy as it sounds.
Russia is trying to topple Angela Merkel by waging an information war designed to stir up anger in Germany over refugees, Nato’s most senior expert on strategic communications has claimed.
According to NATO, Russia is itching to take over as the globocop, still bitter over the outcome of the Cold War and the loss of territory, and Frau Merkel is a thorn in their side. Putin doesn’t care whether it’s the left or the right that rises in Germany. If the left rises, they will be mealy-mouthed pansies who will get steamrolled by an aggressive Russia, and if it’s the right, then Germany stand a good chance of embracing Mother Russia openly and enthusiastically.
Putin wins either way.
Has Russia placed operatives in Germany to keep track of the refugee crisis and stoke the fires of whomever takes the lead? I guarantee you, Putin isn’t afraid of the Arab threat. If they’re lucky, he will deport them. He’s more likely to just slaughter them. Ask Chechnya. It’s all very cloak and dagger, but this kind of stuff does happen. M16, Mossad, the BND, the CIA and of course FSB itself are not exactly selling Girl Scout cookies. The former KGB was dead skilled at carrying out these kinds of operations. They shut down the Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia and the revolution in Hungary using precisely these kinds of tactics.
The KGB prepared the Red Army’s route by infiltrating to Czechoslovakia many illegal residents disguised as Western tourists. They were to gain the trust of and spy upon the most outspoken proponents of Alexander Dubček’s new government. They were to plant subversive evidence, justifying the USSR’s invasion, that right-wing groups—aided by Western intelligence agencies—were going to depose the Communist government of Czechoslovakia. Finally, the KGB prepared hardline, pro-USSR members of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (CPC), such as Alois Indra and Vasiľ Škultéty, to assume power after the Red Army’s invasion
Patrick and I had a lively discussion about this, when he posed a startling question: Given that there is no way Russia can take on Europe and the US militarily, wouldn’t the next best thing be to feminize and cripple the male population of both regions? Promote an ideology that treats men as defective women, shames men for any qualities or characteristics traditionally associated with power, especially military power, and even move to criminalize the expression of masculinity?
Well holy shit.
Does that sound familiar at all?
My first reaction was to laugh, as no doubt you are doing. But think about it: Marxism, communism and feminism are inextricably linked in the West. Feminism directly attacks capitalism, and understands free market economies as antithetical to the interests of women and children. Ever since women acquired the vote, they have voted to expand the role government in providing for women and children, independently of men and marriage. The government takes on the role of husband and provider, but a capitalist economy needs men, vital, powerful and ambitious, to work, with minimal constraints. Feminists can boo-hoo all they want, but the vast majority of innovations, technologies, good and services are conceived of and funded by men. The entire infrastructure of the economy is supported almost exclusively by men. Women perform superfluous labor, very little of it critical.
Capitalism can make men women’s slaves, but it can’t destroy the essential qualities of masculinity that are needed to make it work.
What if Putin saw that? The last 10 years has seen an explosion in the attack on not just men, but masculinity. The qualities of despair, weakness, fragility, inertness are now praised and lauded. They earn the victim bux, driven largely by liberal professors on college campuses, supported to a large degree by the auxiliary, government funded feminist industry. Ambition, confidence, vigor, action and the enforcement of universal boundaries are seen as oppressive expression of ‘toxic masculinity’.
Has the development of victim culture been organic, or was it orchestrated? And if so, by whom?
Look at the American election! The whole world is watching the American election, and I would guess, no one watches with more glee than Vladimir Putin. The left is openly advocating government controlled markets in education and healthcare and wants to gut the military, severely reducing the technological prowess of the US. Train the people to be utterly docile, dependent on the government and take away the government’s ability to innovate or defend the nation. Gee, who might like that plan? The right is only marginally better. Open the US to unfair trade agreements, especially in agriculture. Let’s rely on Russia or China to produce the grain we need for basic foodstuffs, and of course they’ll send it to us when winter sets in because they signed a paper that said they would! Good plan.
Of course, there is that one yuuuge, notable exception.
Donald J. Trump.
He’s not playing the political game. Conservatives are fuming mad that he supports universal healthcare for the desperately poor (no one is going to die on the street), and a free market for those who have the money to play. Trade wars are preferable to unfair trade deals. He will build a wall and control immigration. He will ferret out radical Islam and deal with it. He will pour money into the exact same infrastructure that is designed, built, installed, maintained and repaired by mostly men, meaning by definition most infrastructure money will end up in the pockets of men. If women want to access that money, they are going to have to provide something of value to the men earning it.
To quote Patrick: “If we’re being honest, Trump is not going to make America great again, he’s going to make American MEN great again.”
And of course, Putin would endorse Trump! He hopes to kill him with kindness. Putin will bomb the shit out of Syria to make the spectacle of a Putin/Trump team in the Middle East a complete nightmare for American voters. Putin wants Sanders or Clinton, both of whom will run the country into the ground financially, but more importantly, they will continue to carry out the demoralization and feminization of men.
Feminized men, hiding in their safe spaces with cookies, sobbing over the mean words of Milo Yiannopoulos, are exactly the adversary Putin wants to face. How easy is that victory going to be? Radical Islam is merely exploiting the softness Russia is quietly creating. Putin is sowing the seeds of the fall of America. By convincing the men they are women, and not very good women at that.
It’s like the plot of a political thriller, but seriously, is it that unlikely? If it’s a coincidence, it’s a pretty happy one. Well, happy for Vlad. Not so much for us. I’ve seen lots of chatter on social media about feminism being some kind of Jewish conspiracy, but that’s utter silliness. Please, alt-right commenters, spare me the Jewish conspiracies. If Jews were so damn powerful, you’d think I’d be able to get decent latkes everywhere. Jews have historically been persecuted. That is why they tend to acquires riches that are easily moved. Like education.
It’s only the last 10 years that have seen feminism turn from being about confiscating male resources to actually destroying masculinity. When you consider it, that’s a stupid strategy. If the goal is to force men to turn over more and more of their resources to women, it makes no sense to undermine men’s ability or interest in providing resources.
The destruction of masculinity leaves us incredibly vulnerable to aggressors.
And I suspect that’s not an accident.
And it’s not gonna end well.
Lots of love,
