Postmodernism -- The Destroyers' Philosophy

This is Jordan Peterson, a Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. And this video about postmodernism is an eye opener. Understanding postmodernism brings understanding of those who hold with the philosophy ... and this video clearly explains why they are our enemies.

Professor Peterson recommends this book, Explaining Postmodernism by Stephen R.C. Hicks, a Canadian-American philosopher who teaches at Rockford University. The book is available as a downloadable PDF here:

Dr. Hicks' book is a bit involved, although I've read texts on philosophy that are much more arcane and difficult. But the conclusion he reaches isn't difficult at all. In fact, his conclusions are hardly new.

"Nihilism is close to the surface in the postmodern intellectual movement in a historically unprecedented way," he says and he devotes a section to "Foucault and Derrida on the end of man".

It mirrors what Igor Shafaravich, Soviet mathemetician and dissident, wrote about socialism decades ago, here edited from a paraphrase found at Sobran's:

"...socialism had endured throughout history, usually in the form of one or another Christian heresy. It gives expression to the gnostic urge to rebel — the rebellion of the educated against the constraints imposed by Creation and by God. In earlier periods, when of course the socialist label was not used, it could be identified by its insistent, unvarying emphasis on certain goals: the destruction of private property and of the traditional or 'nuclear' family; and above all, the dismemberment of traditional, or orthodox religion. Throughout history, the phenomenon has been obsessed with material equality, and with the eradication of individual and gender distinctions. It wars incessantly against the normal. A 'striving for self-destruction,' for nothingness, for the “death of mankind,” is the true goal of socialism. Instinctively, without stating it or even seeing it as the conscious goal, the socialist phenomenon seeks the death of the human race."

Socialism's goal is the death of mankind.

The people I call The Destroyers -- antifa, BLM, TEDNOLA, anarchists, leftists and other assorted haters -- have targeted Southern heritage, just as they have targeted Trump events, conservative speakers at universities, and others.

They are formidable opponents, but not invincible. Everything that helps us understand them and push back should be welcomed, and learned from, by our people. That includes  Professor Peterson's video, and Dr. Hicks' book.

ANNOUNCING The Dixie Flyer

An underground newsletter dedicated to supporting and promoting Southern and Confederate heritage.
The Flyer is single-fold, letter-sized, to be printed front and back, and photocopied for distribution. Content is focused on current heritage battles.

It will be professionally digitally typeset and made available for download as a PDF file. It can be taken on disk or thumb drive, or uploaded, to quick-print shops for photocopying. (If you photocopy it yourself, make sure you know how to do two-sided copying.)

A digital version of each edition will be available for reading online.

The Flyer will be a cooperative, volunteer project, at least for the foreseeable future. To be successful, I am looking for:
1. Writers/content providers. Content should fit one of these categories:
A. successful strategies for counter-attacking opponents, short of violence. The Flyer will not endorse or encourage violence.
B. neutralizing the arguments of critics, offline and online, particularly on social media,
C. persuading authorities and the general public,
D. "Did you know" features -- interesting historical tidbits (a few sentences) not generally known.
E. inspirationals, to combat discouragement.

Writers' guidelines will be posted in the future.
2. Original artwork and photography related the Flyer's mission and/or a specific article or report.

3. Advertisers -- Since the Flyer will be small -- 5 1/2 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches tall, and four pages (front, back, and two inside), ad space will be minimal -- one column inch per ad, two ads per issue. Ad costs are not set at this time, but will also be minimal, to defray the cost of web hosting and a domain name.

4. Distributors. In addition to activists who will hand out Flyers at gatherings and pass them out at city and county council meetings and other venues, we need heritage-friendly businesses to make space for a Dixie Flyer display rack. Acrylic bi-fold-sized racks are cheap and work fine. If you don't have a business but you know of one, ask if you can set up the displays and keep the rack stocked with Flyers. 
Southern heritage supporters, visit the new page for The Dixie Flyer at It's Our Heritage webpage. Read the preliminary issue of the Flyer online, or download a PDF. The downloadable version is in two pages (front/back and two inner pages) for printing out, photocopying and distribution. If you use a quick print shop, ask them to show you how to do two-sided copies; then, a single fold makes the Flyer ready for distribution.

Plans are to put a new issue online every two weeks. Content will relate directly to out endangered monuments, and how to fight back.

Meanwhile, here's the preliminary version:

The Dixie Flyer

If you download, print, and distribute, please let me know your experience, not only with the printing, copying, etc. (in case I need to change anything) but also what kind of reception you get.

A Little Visit to the Land of Cyber-hate

I haven't noodled around much at Simpson's hate blog in a long time -- a quick looksee now and then...  But I checked out the comment thread that follows the filth he lately hurled at me, and it is fascinating to see how ungrounded in truth they are, what their concepts of certain subjects are, how they--

Well, here. I'll show you.

Charlie sez, "All the leftists and socialists I’ve read really hate Hillary Clinton! Funny how a New York Billionaire has stolen the heart of these southerners…."

Only the Bernie faction, Charlie. And Trump hasn't stolen any hearts -- well, only a few. Most simply voted for him because he was the only alternative to Hillary.

Ohio Guy: "Far left and far right have a lot in common. They are both motivated primarily by hate. And, the extremes of their hate is evidenced when they focus on each other. A pax on both of their houses!"

Simpson's and DeStroy's blogs being great examples of extreme far left hate. Peace on both houses, Guy? Or did you mean pox?

Jason writes, "They deserve each other imo, I just wish our country wasn’t collateral damage while they dishonesty slug it out."

Pretty flimsy country you got there, Jason.

Jason also writes, "Isn’t this the same crowd who keeps ignorantly claiming that the CSA was right that a state can secede whenever it wants, that the Constitution is just a loose compact between states and that the US is just a “federation”?

There may be some who claim that, sure enough. The "crowd" of Southern heritage thinks and claims the whole spectrum. Getting them to speak in unison is like trying to herd cats.

Jason continues, "How is not anti-american, destructive towards the founders achievements and wishes?? How is violating and attempting to overthrow the Constitution on behalf of preserving slavery not polar opposite to the wishes of people like Washington and Jefferson…?"

Nobody violated or tried to overthrow the Constitution -- they tried to LEAVE the union it governed. You know, depart, withdraw, get the heck out, take a powder, scram, skedaddle....

As a matter of fact, in the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson established that people are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and that governments are instituted to secure those rights. One right he specifically identifies is the right of the people to alter or abolish their government and create another that suits them better. This right both pre-exists and transcends the U.S. Constitution.  How grotesque, then, that the only time Americans have attempted to exercise this right, the government that was supposed to secure it for them made brutal war on them instead.

Andy Hall sez, "You’re looking for intellectual consistency. That’s sweet."

Just don't look for intellectual honesty at Simpson's blog, or Andy's, or Levin's or the demented DeStroy's blog. But if you go looking for hate, you'll find it in spades.

bob carey muses, "I wonder if Chastain collects social security or does she stand on principle and refuse to accept any benefits."

My personal situation is none of your flippin' business, carey, but how would it be "standing on principle" for anyone to refuse to take a benefit one paid into all one's working life? Giving up something you've contributed to for decades is "standing on principle"? My gosh, I wonder what else "standing on principle" means to you.

charlie (don't know if it's a different charlie) sez, "Look at what one of her masculine southern boys had to say…."

Ah, no sense of the passage of time, eh, charlie? I clearly identified that I was talking about Confederate men -- specifically, those in the armed forces of the CSA. I guess separating "back then" from "now" is too much a strain for charlie.
Nightflyer shows the world the extent of HIS conception of manliness: "I didn’t realize the “Lost Cause” was about the virility of the South and the size of Lee’s and Beauregard’s penises."

Unbelievable. Y'all trip over to and look up viril and virility, and see if you can find "penis size" anywhere in the definition. The closest thing you'll find is that a secondary definition of the word is "the power of procreation."  Why is it when one discusses traits of masculinity and femininity or relationships between men and women, leftists promptly illustrate their prurient interests?

Shoshana Bee quotes me (Our Confederate heroes were some of history’s manliest of men. Even in cold, lifeless bronze, Davis, Beauregard and Lee exuded a level of virility that shames Mitch Landrieu...) and then sez, "A casual observation: Why is it that Chastain has to call upon long dead heroes as paragons of her heritage movement? No current examples? Ooopsie! It seems that a majority of them are tied up in one sort of litigation or another, court dates, sentencing, depositions — you know, heritage hero stuff."

Ah, Shoshy, have you been off planet? Or under a rock somewhere? I mention Davis, Beauregard and Lee because THEIR MONUMENTS IN NEW ORLEANS HAVE BECOME THE TARGET OF A STALIN-LIKE PURGE... That's what my whole blog post was about. A casual observation: Can you read? Or when you go into snide snippy mode, does the ability to read and accurately observe elude you?

If you don't mind my asking (and I know I won't get an answer) what does it do for you to lie about heritage folks?

Dimmy Jick bleats, "Note that Chastain seems to exhibit a desire for men who dominated women who could not object to being used for sexual gratification by men who owned them. As I’ve said before, Chastain’s fetish is a psychological matter."

Ah, yes, Dimmy, the fake psychiatrist... my admiration for the men whose monuments have become the targets of a cultural jihadist purging is for their awesome abilities as warriors in the defense of the South and their sterling character (something you might not recognize if you saw it). You have just showed us what prurient historical subject is near and dear to YOUR heart...

C. Meyer mutters, "With all the virility and masculine spirit it’s amazing they lost."

It is amazing, but it becomes more understandable when you know that their enemy preyed on civilians -- women, children, the elderly, servants and other non-combatants-- stealing their food and leaving them to starve. Burning and shelling towns across the South that had no military presence or significance. Because the great humanitarian Lincoln blockaded medicine. Because the South didn't have an endless supply of immigrants who could fight for them right off the boat like the north. Because they were fighting to defend what they loved, homes, families and territory; and the north was fighting to destroy, motivated by hate (their treatment of POWs, Sherman's desire to genocide Southerners ... echoed by his wife. Salmon Chase saying he didn't love slaves as much as he hated slave owners -- but he didn't want free blacks in Ohio. John Brown's murderous/terroristic abolitionist hatred). There's more but that should give you an idea

Hey, Simpson-bots. Have y'all looked in a mirror lately? Probably shouldn't. You might not like what you see -- because what you'll see is what you criticize in others... you know, the folks you hate the most.

Truth Largely Ignored

Another One Getting Like and Shares....

How unfortunate to have such a sleazeball as mayor. There will be some grim satisfaction, however, in watching the city rot and grow moldy and dessicated.  At least it will still have voodoo, drugs, prostitution and crime.

The Nature of the Monument Destroyers

The force behind the assault on Confederate heritage is the same force behind the attacks on President Trump. What we are seeing is an enormous psychotic episode, a colossal nervous breakdown by the ultra-left in America because their adored Hillary was defeated.

The left has always been destructive, increasingly so in recent years. But since Trump has been in office -- since late January -- where he has steadily razed the Obama legacy, they've been like an animal in the furious stage of rabies.

These people are not Americans. Leftists are socialists. They are the antithesis of Americans. They are destroyers. Since they cannot have our country and transform it into Socialist America, they will destroy it.

Destroying Confederate heritage is an early phase, a trial run, you might say. They have the same fate in mind for the legacy of the Founders... not just monuments and statues, but the very country they crafted. They want to destroy every aspect of the culture -- Christianity, the family, private property, education, historical memory, our cultural cohesiveness, our very identity as western man.

Western man. Man. Men. The left hates nothing the way they hate masculinity. From "feminism", which is not about equality for women but about hating and hurting men ... from feminizing industry, education, the military, church leadership, the popular culture, the government to the demonization of "dead white males" the left hates virility.

VIRILE, VIRILITY characterized by a vigorous, masculine spirit: manly character, vigor, or spirit; masculine energy, forcefulness, or strength in a marked degree.

Our Confederate heroes were some of history's manliest of men. Even in cold, lifeless bronze, Davis, Beauregard and Lee exuded a level of virility that shames Mitch Landrieu.

The nameless Confederate soldiers in marble and granite standing atop pedestals and obelisks across the South shame the typical leftist male -- the Michael Moores, the Morris Deeses, the brainwashed antifa, the mindless mobs, the spineless and weak-minded men, leftists themselves or influenced by leftism, who run government at all levels. The closest thing these men have to masculine energy and vigorous spirit is hatred. Oddly enough, this is the same fuel that energizes leftist women -- the Hillary Clintons, the Maxine Waterses, the Ashley Judds and the Madonnas -- as well.

As we craft and then implement our counter-offensive in the defense of our heritage -- and our continued existence and the future for our children (make no mistake, these are in the Left's crosshairs, as well) -- it will do us well to remember the nature of our attackers.
