And The Ruling Class Trembled

weevwald

Yesterday a billionaire’s clerk updated his brand started a circle jerk joined a movement of truly revolutionary proportions.

I, for one, welcome the consolidation of previously separate pseudo-left factions into the DSA (Democrats of Something Awful).  It’s clarifying and hopefully helps clueless fucks get a purchase on reality if they still regard their favorite pseud as some kind of exception. Like perhaps the radlib Craphouse haters who have been WTF-ing Greenwald over this. Why the surprise?

Greenwald is the spiritual leader of an entirely de-politicized “left” defined by insipid, ahistoric disaffection, sneering superiority, anti-radicalism, and a soft spot for fascism. He places his pro bono defense of a violence-inciting white supremacist among his proudest achievements, is ardently anti-communist, regards the Skokie decision as a peak moment in Western Civilization,  and was one of white nationalist Weev’s earliest and most enduring champions. It was through Greenwald that fascist trolling as a substitute for argument became normalized on the scare quote left, and he cultivated Chapo’s Felix Biedermann and pals for sociopathic micro-jihads against his critics. Remember when they swarmed writers who dared to implicate his billionaire boss in Ukrainian neo-naziism? No? Perhaps you were too busy jerking off to surveillance porn.

What other than the most abject fucking stupidity can possibly explain surprise or disappointment at Greenwald burnishing his brand where 4chan proto-fascism and liberal disaffection intersect? Greenwald doesn’t just belong here. This is the house he built. Why do you think these repellant assholes compete to get their mouths around his nutsack in social media, as in the truly grotesque display featured below?

Among capital’s anointed “lefts” there are no exceptions, you fucking idiots. When will you grow the fuck up???

    Feinstein appears to have the worst case of ruling class tremors right now. I’d expect her to be more at ease if it was Trump going down. Others going down as well?

    I’m probably more answerable to this than most who will be reading it. Mea culpa. I suppose I was trying to provoke him into publicly reconciling his adversarial left profile with all the people welcoming him into the ranks of the “Grey Wolves” but I just ended up being the butt of stupid jokes from about fifty chapo jackasses.

    Speaking of whom, I thought I’d include a link to this thread by cuttlefish on irony “left” twitter and its offshoots. https://twitter.com/cuttlefish_btc/status/842163036391669762 It’s more about the chapos than gg, but if anyone hasn’t read it it is worth a look.

      I had specific people in mind when I wrote this, but you weren’t one of them. I do think you miscalculated on where his vanity is most vulnerable. It’s sure not anything that keeps him from making common cause with fascists. I don’t think he even conceives of himself as a leftist. He just lets people project what they like since, apart from the civil libertarian stuff and his contempt for Democrats, his politics are a black box. He’s sure not a newcomer to the Chapo crew, which is why I find the WTF-ing so particularly bizarre. Biedermann and the irony bros cut their teeth on his critics in 2013, with his full endorsement. He even went on the emoprog podcast when Biedermann was part of that bullshit.

      I guess I’m so far from liking Greenwald, I forget the Stockholm Syndrome he induces in the politically abused. I’ve said in the past that he is the rebound boyfriend of disappointed Obamaphiles and they do the same kind of narcissistic projecting with him that they did with BO in 2008. I look at all his fascist-enabling — which I think far exceeds any other celeb left, including Crapple — and just marvel that he has any credibility on the so-called Left at all. But, it is, after all, the “so-called” Left, and is entirely devoid of anything but signals at this point, and even those are very fluid and provisional.

      I’m thinking that this consolidation of Snowwald riff raff and the Jacobin/DSA scum might be a good thing, since the flag they’re all rallying under is cynicism and self-amused privilege. They couldn’t look less serious or formidable and I think their infantile irony schtick has gotten so in-bred it has limited appeal to newcomers. Weird how social climbing brings people who despise each other together. I mean Conor Kilpatrick and Greenwald on the same team. That’s a hilarious testimony to each dude’s complete political emptiness. I think maybe the Pando crew is even signing up for this which is really weird considering the history.

      No. It’s fake. Every sensible person loves Greenwald as avidly as you do, no matter how many fascists he defends, works for, supports or parties with.

    I wouldn’t blame you if you’re just so completely sick of these people that you wouldn’t be interested in the below, but you know all of the abuse you and others have taken over the years for calling GG out for being a craven, dishonest twat?
