TAC: Don’t Be Too Happy Glenn Youngkin Won

I’m glad that Terry McAuliffe lost.

I’ve explained my reasoning. No politician in the country inflicted more damage on the organized movement than McAuliffe through his control of the Virginia State Police in Charlottesville. We have also continued to see a meaningful difference between the two parties in how Democratic governors have coddled BLM and Antifa during the George Floyd riots.

This is not a small thing. Ever since Charlottesville, we haven’t trusted Democratic governors and Democratic mayors to protect our First Amendment rights, which is why activists have resorted to flash rallies in Democratic cities or holding public rallies in Republican-controlled states and cities. The reason that hundreds of Trump supporters were arrested over the Capitol Siege is because they trusted law enforcement. The reason that Kyle Rittenhouse is on trial for murder is because Gov. Tony Evers allowed a BLM and Antifa mob to burn down Kenosha. Rittenhouse didn’t get the memo.

In Charlottesville, the mistake that we made is that we assumed based on previous experience in the pre-Trump era that our First Amendment rights would be protected by the Charlottesville Police and Virginia State Police. We assumed that would happen because we had a federal court order. There were hundreds of police officers there. The event should have been safe, but it wasn’t because of the political climate in Charlottesville and Virginia. It was an opportunity for Terry McAuliffe to screw us.

Anyway, I can say that we learned something that day and haven’t made the same mistake again. We are under no illusions about Glenn Youngkin though. We’re not expecting much at all. Generally though

TAC:

“On Tuesday evening, a man won an election in a place that does not exist. The man, who had previously been the CEO of a company that does nothing, was elected governor of Nowhere after promising to do something about issues he could neither define nor describe.

If the above summary is slightly unfair to the achievement of Glenn Youngkin, to the no-doubt jolly and life-enhancing work in private equity and consulting done by his former employer the Carlyle Group, and to his place of residence in Northern Virginia, where McMansions and fake brick-veneered apartment complexes and shopping centers seem to emerge spontaneously from the earth like the “spacious wound” out of which the mansions of hell arise in Milton, take comfort. Youngkin has already earned more than his fair share of praise from conservatives both here and abroad, some of it fairly cringe inducing.

If I had my druthers, we would not overdetermine the consequences of this election. The opposition besting the president’s party in the first midterm contest is not exactly a world-historic first. But since everyone seems to insist that we have to talk about it in grand sweeping terms, I will take a shot at explaining why, apart from the bare fact of enjoying a loss for the Clintons as much as the next right-of-center take-worker, I am not optimistic, much less enthusiastic, about Youngkin. (I will resist the temptation to make any jokes about the similarity of his surname to a brand of Chinese malware dolls.) …”

I agree that the Youngkin takes are overdetermined.

Clearly, Youngkin was swept into power by the same national backlash that nearly made Jack Ciattarelli the governor of New Jersey. This is partially due to the normal churn of American politics like 2009. It is partially due to the Wokelash. It is partially due to the fact that the economy sucks right now. Trump voters are also fired up because of the vaccine mandates and because they think the 2020 election was stolen while Democrats are depressed and pulling their hair out over Joe Biden’s stalled agenda. The results in Virginia and New Jersey mostly reflect the fact that Independent voters have turned on the Democrats which has been evident in the polls for months now. The national political environment simply favors generic Republican candidates right now. There is nothing special about this guy.

  1. All rights must be sacrificed to the greater good of multiracial diversity and the fight against Whiteness!

    • Youngkin is owned by the (((Carlyle Group))). Dems were comfortable with this, or they would have flipped enough votes to best him.

  2. A socialist take on the election and racial identity politics: https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/11/04/pers-n04.html Excerpt: “The comprehensive defeat of the Democratic Party in Tuesday’s off-year election marks a political watershed (…) The outcome of the November 2 vote was a defeat, not merely of an administration, but of the entire political framework of the Democratic Party, its social orientation over many decades. The Democratic Party has always been a capitalist party, but it once made an appeal to the working class on the basis of its economic interests. This period is long since gone. Instead, it has sought to forge a political constituency in sections of the upper middle class through appeals based on the promotion of racial and gender identity politics. The Democratic Party is now inseparable from an obsessive focus on issues of race and gender, including affirmative action, reparations for slavery, and the teaching of reactionary myths like “critical race theory” and the 1619 Project (…) The embrace of identity politics (…) splits the working class and strengthens political reaction (…) The role of the Democrats in strengthening reaction follows a definite historical pattern. For the past 30 years, every time the Democratic Party won full control of government—both houses of Congress and the White House—it proceeded to enact policies that alienated rather than benefited the working class, producing an electoral catastrophe as a consequence. Clinton’s victory in 1992 was followed by the Republican takeover of Congress under Newt Gingrich in 1994. Obama’s victory in 2008 led to the Republican capture of the House in 2010, then the Senate in 2014, and finally the victory of Trump in 2016. Biden’s victory in 2020 appears likely to produce a similar debacle. The Democrats have written off large sections of the white working class, particularly in impoverished and deindustrialized regions of Appalachia and small-town America, where the trade unions Biden embraces are identified in the minds of workers with closed factories and betrayed strikes. The result is that in the former coal-mining towns of southwest Virginia, strongholds of working-class militancy only 40 years ago, Republican candidates now win as much as 90 percent of the vote. The defeat of the Democrats on November 2, however much consternation it causes in the ranks of the pseudo-left apologists for this reactionary, imperialist party, is in no way a defeat for the working class. On the contrary, it coincides with rising militancy and class consciousness among millions of workers—expressed so powerfully in the massive rejection votes for contracts promoted by the United Auto Workers and other bureaucratic shells still going by the name of ‘union.’ It is noteworthy that more than 10,000 workers on strike at John Deere voted to reject a sellout accepted by the UAW on the same day that the Democratic Party was comprehensively repudiated (…) There is a clear connection between the defeat of union officialdom and the defeat of the political party to which these union leaders are tied by a thousand strings…”

  3. @ I hope they put out a warrant for McAaliffe’s arrest, there should be a law against McAaliffism, it’s dangerous and contagious, democrat’s should be vaccinated, for their own good and the good of society,

    • “the fact that the economy sucks right now”

      You think the economy sucks, now ?
      Wait til they reduce credit availability, in an effort to control debt and inflation.

      Infrastructure bill is a joke, a false label on a puny stimulus.

      • New vax mandate deadline is Jan. 8th. Everyone is affected, because most businesses do business with the government in some fashion. This isn’t about just federal workers.
        Companies with over 100 employees are affected, too.
        They’re going to force us out on the street, if we don’t take their suspicious vax.

  4. “We are under no illusions about Glenn Youngkin though. We’re not expecting much at all. ”

    Yeah, because he’s a retardican. But the message got through loud and clear, as Anonymous noted, above.

    White self-interest, Christian self-interest (Because it’s GOD’s self-interest- let’s talk about the Incarnation being the SELF-IDENTIFICATION of Christ with His people, if you doubt me- Matt. 1:21) should be the ONLY things we vote for, forever more.

    ORION.

    “Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”

    The J-Left, the nigger, and the faggot are NOT America. Never forgive. NEVER forget.

    Ps. 139:22 – “Yes, I hate them with total hatred, for your enemies are my enemies.”

  5. January 6 political prisoners are being deprived of due process.

    Dear Fellow Americans –

    I never thought I’d write a letter like this, but we’re living in very different times. This is my cry for help.

    My name is Nathan DeGrave, and as a non violent participant at the Jan 6th rally, I’ve spent the last 9 months detained as a political prisoner in pod C2B at the DC DOC…otherwise known as DC’s Gitmo.

    The conditions here for Jan 6ers have been inhumane. In fact, some inmates are even begging to be transferred to GUANTANAMO BAY, where even THEY have more acceptable standards.

    Class action LAWSUITS are being filed against this prison; and even the ACLU has gotten involved. Senators Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene have since attempted to gain access to this facility and inspect the conditions of the jail, only to be denied.

    The vile filth of what has become our daily life is being illegally HIDDEN from the members of OUR OWN CONGRESS.

    So…let me tell you about what me and many of the other Jan 6ers have been experiencing in DC’s Gitmo. It is my hope that with MEDIA EXPOSURE and the awareness of the American public, that SOMETHING may be done and this never happens to anyone ever again.

    OUR CONDITIONS

    For the first 120 days in DC’s Gitmo, Jan 6ers experienced DAILY LOCKDOWNS for 23-24 HOURS before being allowed to leave our small 120 sq. ft cell. The PHYSICAL and MENTAL ANGUISH that results from this kind of SEVERE ISOLATION has caused many people to go on a RAPID mental decline.

    As a result, a large percentage of us are HEAVILY MEDICATED with anti-anxiety and anti-depressant drugs, which helps to cope with the psychological and mental ABUSE we endure.

    Many times, the little rec we DO receive is STRIPPED AWAY if our cell isn’t up to the standards of the guard on duty. This changes from day to day. Jan 6ers have lost rec time and out of cell activity ANY TIME news interviews about the jail are aired on TV, people speak up about our conditions, or rallies are held in our name. We’ll probably have a lockdown upon the publishing of this letter. So I have already warned those I know in advance..

    Masks are WEAPONIZED and used against us, even though we NEVER leave the facility. Officers have walked in with the SOLE INTENTION of needing to write 20-30 disciplinary reports against Jan 6ers, which adversely effects our chances of release and causes loss of privileges, phone time and commissary. Masks need to be covering both the nose and mouth AT ALL TIMES or we are threatened and locked down in our cells. Jan 6ers are always respectful to the employees around us, but C.Os maintain the need to invent reasons for discipline.

    PRIVILEGED LEGAL DOCUMENTS have been CONFISCATED and gone missing from various cells, and HIGHLY SENSITIVE discovery (video evidence under attorney/client privilege) is watched by employees during our legal calls.

    Jordan Mink, for example, had all discovery TAKEN by ERT officers on August 23rd despite the objection of his attorney. They handcuffed him, searched his room, and then proceeded to take all video evidence in his possession. Additionally, legal visits take 2-3 WEEKS or more to be scheduled, leaving little time to discuss our defense and prepare for trial.

    The EXTREME medical neglect in this facility has caused a variety of adverse illnesses and disease. Some show signs of scurvy. And some even have Covid like symptoms, but medical personnel have refused to treat it.

    Christopher Worrell, for example, is an inmate with Cancer, who also broke his hand in prison and requires surgery. Both have been completely ignored. Federal judge Royce Lamberth got to the point where on October 12th, he filed contempt of court charges against the warden of the DC DOC, claiming that Worrell’s civil rights have been violated, and demanding the U.S attorney general inquire further about his and other possible violations.

    Another inmate, Peter Stager, WAITED FOUR MONTHS to receive his CPAP breathing machine, and has needed an MRI since spring, which has also been ignored by staff.

    The harsh, unlivable conditions of our unit has caused health hazards that defy Department of Health regulations. And on at least five occasions, RAW SEWAGE has overflowed our unit, causing human fecal matter to flood the floors and rooms. That’s also in addition to the MOLD on cell walls, as well as the rusty pipes, and DIRTY WATER that flows from these sinks. White rags TURN BROWN when exposed to the water from our faucets.

    We are undergoing SEVERE NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES and STARVATION. For breakfast this morning, I received a tray of flavorless paste, two slices of bread, and a slice of bologna. Lunches usually consist of rice and beans, but we’ll get cold chicken/beef patties if we are lucky. For dinner, we are sometimes fed a diet of cheese sandwiches, and bologna and cheese 4 to 5 times per week.

    Without commissary, people like myself are FORCED TO STARVE. I suffer from HEADACHES and NAUSEA on an almost REGULAR BASIS from the malnutrition and constant hunger I am subjected to. I have lost ALMOST 15 POUNDS since I’ve been detained.

    Our rights to personal hygiene are also totally neglected. Razors are PROHIBITED, and inmates are forced to either go unshaved, and grow long beards, or use a razor free cream that BURNS and IRRITATES the skin. But many other jails have allowed the use of razors without incident. Haircuts are also PROHIBITED from unvaccinated inmates. For me, it’s been nearly 9 months. I look VIRTUALLY UNRECOGNIZABLE in the condition I’m in. I fear even my family would not recognize me.

    Contact with the outside world, from legal visits to seeing loved ones is HIGHLY RESTRICTED. After in-person visits, legal or otherwise, we are forced to undergo humiliating STRIP SEARCHES, despite ALL visitors being thoroughly checked for contraband. If it’s a legal visit, we are placed in a 14 day quarantine, with no out of cell time; EVEN IF your attorney is VACCINATED and tests NEGATIVE for Covid. Visits with friends or family members, for unvaccinated inmates, are NEVER ALLOWED.

    As a result, many people have skipped critical meetings with their council, and NEVER get an opportunity to see friends or family. VIDEO VISITATION, while available to the rest of the jail, is RESTRICTED in the Jan 6 pod. Mail is delayed for MONTHS, and phone calls are limited to a MAXIMUM of pre approved 12 numbers. If there’s anyone else in our extended family or otherwise we’d like to call, we’re pretty much out of luck.

    RELIGIOUS SERVICES, protected by the 1st amendment, are NOT provided to Jan 6ers. Neither are in person classes or other activities available to the rest of the jail. An inmate named Ryan Samsel, instead attempted to organize his own bible study inside the pod, until he was viciously BEATEN and LEFT FOR DEAD by correctional officers. He suffered a broken eye socket and brain damage as a result of the vicious attack. He’s now permanently blind in one eye. On another occasion, Scott Fairlamb was confronted by an officer in the middle of the night, and his life was threatened, once the officer’s body cam was disabled. Many, like myself, are afraid they could be the next victim.

    And last but not least, we experience racism from many guards on a daily basis, being the ONLY WHITE REPUBLICANS in the entire jail. The false narrative is has been passed around the jail and to corrections officers that we are “white supremacists” (we are NOT). The inmate population is predominantly black, so we are at risk being here because of this false narrative. The guards are mostly liberal migrants from Africa who have been conditioned to hate us, and hate America. Jan 6ers have been mocked, beaten and ridiculed by guards for singing the National Anthem. The Corrections Officers despise our politics and the love we have for this country. At one point, an officer even yelled “FUCK AMERICA!”, and threatened to lock us down FOR A WEEK if we attempted to sing the National Anthem again.

    THE TRUTH ABOUT MY STORY

    Finally, I feel like I should touch briefly on the government and prosecutor’s portrayal of who I am as a person.

    No, I am not a terrorist, extremist or any of the other names I’ve been called by the government. More than anything, I am a red blooded patriot and I love this country more than anything.

    I am being unfairly prosecuted and definitely overcharged. I never assaulted anyone, destroyed property, or stolen anything. I walked through wide open doors to enter the Capitol, along with my camera crew hoping to get the rally on video. I was never even armed at any point inside the Capitol.

    Our goal was to make a documentary, and get likes and shares on social media. Yes I wore a costume (that the prosecutor refers to as paramilitary gear and body armor) but it was for the movie and was nothing of the sort.

    And yet, 9 months later here I sit, with 10 years worth of charges and no hope for a future. The surveillance footage shows absolutely no signs of assault, and despite attempts by media companies to get it released to the public, the government has denied it.

    I think that’s because they are fully aware that this footage is questionable at worst, and exonerates me at best. Please don’t be fooled by the media. I am a loving and peaceful person with no history of violence.

    This weaponized DOJ and their blatant resentment of my respect for President Donald Trump is putting me in a situation that makes me feel helpless in my current situation.

    HOW YOU CAN HELP

    Despite me and other Jan 6ers experiencing these unthinkable conditions, all of us remain POSITIVE and HOPEFUL that, in the end, JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL. We maintain a LOVE for this country and the Constitution like no other. The only thing keeping us going is our undying patriotism, the camaraderie between one another and our faith in God.

    Please…SHARE THIS LETTER with EVERYONE you know: friends and family, senators, representatives, political organizers, civil rights groups and media outlets.

    The truth HAS to get out. And the jail MUST PAY for what they are doing to this country’s citizens.

    As a result of this unlawful detainment the last 9 months, I have lost everything. The successful business I spent 13 years of my life working on, my apartment in Las Vegas, social media accounts with a lifetime of memories…you name it.

    The government has essentially CANCELLED ME. Not only that, but following the arrest, my best friend of 12 years robbed my apartment, stole my cat, and hacked my personal Instagram with 100,000+ followers.

    Since then, I often go between feelings of hopefulness and moments of depression. I wonder if I can ever recover from this, but I have to remind myself to never give up.

    There are major medical complications I now struggle with as a result of the jail’s neglect of my health since being here.

    If there is any way I hope to recover, my only hope are the ones who are reading this. I was on top of the world once upon a time, and that life seems now only like a distant memory.

    If there’s anything you can do to help, I would appreciate anything at all. Inmates here are being extorted with lack of nutrition, forcing me to spend most of what’s left on commissary which I can no longer afford.

    I need desperate help with my legal expenses and just help staying alive in here with commissary and all the expenses I still have on the outside as my livelihood and life has been stripped away from me. Thank you for any her you can afford, even if it is a few dollars it goes a long way in here.

    Sincerely and with love,

    Nathaniel DeGrave

    • The U.S.’s REAL Gulag is ignored by its mainstream media that claims China is operating a gulag for Uyghurs – and the “American people” (the mixed population of the U..S. “homeland”) do not mind (and want to ignore it) because imperialism brings trillions of dollars of unearned wealth to the “homeland,” some of which trickles down.

      Even when word does get out in mainstream media about some case of torture in Gitmo, or other black or gray political prison site, it is used as cover to ignore all the thousands of OTHER cases of torture that are not being reported, as if there are only a few such cases when in fact there are MANY.

      Note that Julian Assange is also still being held political prisoner, along with many other independent, real journalists that dared to tell the truth. “Freedom of the press” indeed!

  6. Youngkin will now pay back his (((donors))) by imposing “antisemitic” laws and going after “White” supremacists.

  7. McAuliffe lost to a faceless Republican businessman. That’s fine. But there is not going to be a political solution.

  8. imagine still believing that it makes any difference what letter is in parenthesis next to a lying politicians name
