Having grown up in the modern, liberalized West, we have been trained to see sexuality everywhere. We have read biographies of historical figures who we are told were secretly gay, we have been taught the Kinsey reports as if they were gospel tracts, and we’ve heard incessantly about the ‘subsconsious sexual power dynamics’ implicit in darn near everything.
By that description I don’t mean to suggest its all bunk, only that the liberals have pushed it to death in many ways.
Authors like Wilhelm Reich (The Function of Orgasm) and Sigmund Freud influenced our modern cultures to astonishing degrees, as did degenerate comics like Woody Allen, and while all this obsessive sexual-think was once the gestalt only of the educated, effete liberal class, its now something we have all been submerged in.
‘Dirty, Dirty Right-Wingers’
As a result of this submergence we all went through growing up in the intellectual shadow of such thinkers, we are primed to notice such phenomena.
With this being the case, it has been impossible not to notice a hint of these subconscious psychosexual dynamics at play in some of the articles written about the contemporary “Alt-Right” in the wake of Charlottesville by female, liberal journalists.
[Note: Here is the article I wrote on Charlottesville in its aftermath, which separately discusses the (small number) of actual Neo-Nazi’s and other idiots who were there, vs the significant number of very normal, wholesome people who protested there as well but were ignored by the media.]
While articles in the immediate aftermath of Charlottesville were focused more on spin and hyperbole, in recent days there have been others that were far… *trickier* – to use a word the academic-left likes to use in such instances.
Many of these- while denouncing those at Charlottesville as horrible “Neo-Nazi’s” and “racists” and “white supremacists” and every other invective under the sun- also can’t help but point out how “young”, “clean cut”, and “fit” the young men are.
Terrified claims about the “violence and terror” supposedly perpetrated by them are transposed against published pictures often showing them looking handsome, well-groomed, and ‘normal’.
The strongest example of this weird underlying dynamic came in the form of the Vice documentary that was just released on HBO. The film, which purported to document the entirety of the situation in Charlottesville, is admittedly well-made. Yet strangely, in the end it almost comes off like some 1940’s romantic-action film where the blonde-female documentarian and “far-right” figure Christopher Cantwell are the two love interests. Shots of the two zinging each other with political barbs dominate, as do numerous clips of Cantwell shirtless. It ends, suggestively, with the two (seemingly) alone in Cantwell’s hotel room, talking about what happened during the day, with Cantwell’s collection of guns strewn across the bed.
Some on the left may be tempted to deny what I am saying, yet in other cases progressives themselves are acknowledging it.
Jezebel actually did so last December, lamenting that all the female journalist-authored pieces on a certain ‘far-right’ thinker “share a fascination with his virility”, and slamming one author for drooling over his “prom-king good looks”.
In recent days, Vox recently published an article titled ‘Sexualized Fascism’ which analyzed exactly how ‘far-right’ belief systems have historically been viewed as ‘sexy’, and how the same dynamic is at play today with the young men like those at Charlottesville.
It quotes early 20th century writer Walter Benjamin, who stated that “fascist imagery [is] predicated on eroticized notions of power and submission.” It also references the famous Baby-Boomer liberal Susan Sontag on the “erotic surface” of right-wing imagery, and her quote that “Certainly Nazism is ‘sexier’ than communism.”
Indeed, to give the article credit, it attributes the success of what it calls the “alt right” (or what I would call the phenomenon of Millenials’ shift to nationalism) to- in part- these very dynamics, labeling it as counter-cultural and transgressive, and ending with the a Laura Catherine Frost quote that… “the politically forbidden and repudiated is just as likely to be the substance of erotic fantasy and the chosen political object. … Images of sexualized fascism derive their meaning precisely from the distance mainstream culture puts between itself and deviation.”
Real Life Dynamics
While the above articles follow in the same hyperbolic, ‘fake news’ style that has been so prevalent as of late, which portrays anyone who supports Trump and anyone who opposes tearing down statues as “evil white supremacist Nazi’s”, there is far more to it than that. While I think the above writers who discuss the subconscious attraction to such ‘radical’ aesthetics some women have are correct, I think that that at most represents 1% of what is going on here, just as such legitimate ‘Nazi’s’ represent at most maybe 1% of the movement I am referencing.
There is ample proof today that women are craving masculine, traditional men in a very mainstream way.
In his podcast on Art of Manliness author Neil Howe (The Generations) talks about his interviews with young women today on what they want in men. He states that unlike women back in the 1960’s and 1970’s who wanted “sensitive” men who would talk with them and “share their emotions” and help them with the chores, today young women say they want the exact opposite. He reports them as complaining about “overly-sensitive” men, and wanting ones who will “take charge” and lead them.
There have been parallel cases made that the vast success of books like “Fifty Shades Of Grey” (all about sado-masochism and dominance and submission type stuff)- which is now one of the best selling books of all time and was read almost exclusively by women- represents an extreme reaction to the subconscious dismay modern women feel at feminism (whether they understand it as such or not).
With this being the case, it is no surprise that many women are thrilling to the MAGA banner, and that those who are tend to be quite good-looking.
Yet again, on the flip side, we see the subconscious liberal version of this phenomenon as well.
Indeed, we see it very clearly in the fascinating writings of young Donna Zuckerberg, Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg’s little sister.
Reading her work is instructive to say the least, but what is most fascinating stems from her dual obsessions with 1) the classics, and 2) what she calls “Red-Pill communities”, meaning basically anything remotely related to masculinity/PUA’s or “the alt right”.
Obsession is not too strong a word either- she has literally written hundreds of pages on each, and seems to have a close-working knowledge of every Return of Kings type ‘manosphere’ site out there and their authors.
The three focuses she tends to vacillate between are the beauty and excitement of the classics, the patriarchy and ‘sexual oppression’ of the classics, and the ‘patriarchy and oppression and racism and etc’ of “Red Pill communities” and the men in them.
To break this down even more simply, Miss Zuckerberg clearly articulates the following in her writings:
A. She is intensely passionate about the Classics and Greek Myth, and finds them highly affecting and stimulating.
B. She states that “‘Greek myth’ is a rich tapestry of stories where men use their power and status to sexually abuse women”
C. She is shocked, shocked that “Red-Pill Communities” and the “far-right” love the classics and identify with them too, and is scandalized by the ‘fascism’ and ‘patriarchal sexuality’ of such men.
I’ll leave readers to do the heavy intellectual lifting…
While the liberal feminist authors of the modern late-stage degenerate West demonstrate varying degrees of self-awareness in the above-referenced articles, there is another group of women being quite explicit in the same preferences.
Indeed, to see the totally sincere, fully-conscious version of what is described above, we have only to look at the following story, which blew up on twitter and then the web in recent days.
It had to do with two very good-looking young blonde girls who, while on a trip with their high school, stopped at (historically African-American) Howard University, decked out trendily in very short jean shorts, proverbial ‘back-pocket smartphones’, and…. most notably… Donald Trump shirts and MAGA hats.
I ask our esteemed readers… could there be any plainer representation of women’s desire to a return to cultural sanity then what we see in the below picture?
Reconquest and Preservation here we come.
Editor’s Note: Will the feminist-liberals ever come clean of their desires? Can they be rehabilitated? Would you marry one if she joined the MAGA-team? Questions, questions, questions…
Big thank you to Steve too for the link to an article on Miss Zuckerberg which jogged my memory on her.
