We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Google Lawsuit Exposes Stalinist Climate Protecting Anti-White, Anti-Male Bias

11th January 2018

The Other McCaine is on the case.

We tend to use the phrase “political correctness” as a joke, without acknowledging its blood-soaked historical origins. However, I’ve spent the past couple of weeks reading  Robert Conquest’s The Great Terror, a history of the darkest era in Stalin’s murderous dictatorship, and I cannot overlook the parallels between Stalinism and the so-called SJW (social-justice warrior) mentality exposed by James Damore’s lawsuit.

And Stalinism is not too strong a word for it. The ‘anti-fascist’ thugs get a lot of press these days, but the biggest threat we face is not incipient fascism but incipient communism — which is just another word for the same thing, really, only with different uniforms and verbal tropes — which has taken a very strong hold in our elected government (Hey, there, Bernie!) and public institutions such as academia and the media.

Nobody wants to be known as a fascist these days, but being a communist (or its boring older brother, socialist) is quite respectable and even fashionable, especially in foreign parts like Europe and New York and San Francisco. We don’t need to worry about what people don’t want to be seen as; we have to worry about what people don’t mind being seen as.

Harper’s did a classic article by Dorothy Thompson in 1941 called Who Goes Nazi? that attempts to discern, from an normal New York cocktail party, which of the guests would be a Nazi should that ever come to the U.S. It’s a chilling exercise, based on the author’s experiences in Europe during the run-up to WWII. Even more chilling are the parallels between that situation and now, except that an analogous article Who Goes Communist? would not only never get published but would be denounced by all of the Usual Suspects as ‘McCarthyism’.
