“I must concede to Mr. Hunter Wallace over at Occidental Dissent, that after much thinking and ongoing current events, I’ve had a change of heart. Previously, I made an argument against accelerationism that sparked much discussion. Now, I’ve revised my standing on it because I must admit that there is some merit to it that is worth more than just a second glance.
I still believe it is important we fashion our own society that exists not only separate, but alongside modern society. We still live among it, but are not part of it. That is something I will not let go because I believe it will lay the foundations necessary to rebuild a new Southern society from the ashes of what has become corrupted by Clown World. …”
We’re not doing #YangGang anymore.
I was hoping for a soft landing, but it looks like we are getting the hard landing. I had imagined a scenario in which Andrew Yang would have stuck to his “$1,000 a month” bit while hewing to a carefully crafted position on immigration. It seemed like the obvious route to the presidency to me given that the path to the White House runs through the swelling disaffected populist middle of the electorate. I’m not in his ear on a daily basis though and Yang listed to his stupid campaign manager.
As far as accelerationism goes, the question to me is whether reelecting Blompf and the GOP will bring us any closer to realigning the party to where Tucker Carlson is on the issues. Most people would be satisfied with that but I just don’t see how affirming Blompf’s record, current campaign strategy and ideological positioning will accomplish that goal. He has retreated to mainstream conservatism and reelecting him in 2020 would just be interpreted as a vindication of Charlie Kirkism.
Positive accelerationism isn’t based on any particular candidate. It is basically just voting for candidates who advance our agenda in some way while choosing not to vote for the candidates who don’t. We should be swing voters. Sitting out the 2020 election would have nearly the same effect as voting for Yang or Tulsi. It costs Blompf votes for betraying all his campaign promises.
Tucker has already said everything I have said here. He said on his show the other night that the Koch Brothers were buying the policies and voters would walk.
Note: Seriously though, I am probably just going to make fun of everyone in this election cycle now while continuing to produce more content that is history or culture related. There is plenty of work to be done. Who knows maybe President Kamala Harris will be good for the MIGApedes?
