The Ignoranti Speak

Brendan O'Neill shows the lack of comprehension that afflicts mugwumps, RINOS and the ignoranti:
It's becoming so clear now why the war of words between SJWs and the new white nationalists is so intense. It isn't because they have huge ideological differences -- it's because they have so much in common. Both are obsessed with race, SJWs demanding white shame, the alt-right responding with white pride. Both view everyday life and culture through a highly racialised filter. SJWs can't even watch a movie without counting how many lines the black actor has in comparison with the white actor so that they can rush home and tumblr about the injustice of it all. Both have a seemingly boundless capacity for self-pity. Both are convinced they're under siege, whether by patriarchy, transphobia and the Daily Mail (SJWs) or by pinkos and blacks (white nationalists). Both have a deep censorious strain. And both crave recognition of their victimhood and flattery of their feelings. This is really what they're fighting over -- not principles or visions but who should get the coveted title of the most hard-done-by identity. They're auditioning for social pity. "My life matters! My pain matters! I matter!" The increasing bitterness and even violence of their feud is not evidence of its substance, but the opposite: it's the narcissism of small differences.
"...not principles or visions..."? That is the most inaccurate statement which could possibly be made. If he believes it, then he is a fool. As the Left continues to deny venues to speech other than their own racist, fascist, violent eliminationist rhetoric - now focused on all whites - the necessary reaction to that is not an audition "for social pity". And to state that it is, is inexplicable except due to unconscionable ineptness of observation.

The Left's tactics go far beyond denial of venue, and include brutality at events of the Right, from Trump rallies to the rally to stop the destruction of Democrat history in the south. Antifa needn't schedule events nor obtain permits: they go to the meetings of the Other and bring mayhem, fire, bloody attacks - which are abetted by the police, usually by "standing down" (hell, just go home, cops!), or by actively forcing the Other into the weaponry of the antifa goons. Afterwards, the antifa rioting and brutality is blamed on Trump, of course, as the Leftist MSM and politicians cover for their nouveau-KKK.

But as for O'Neill, if he gets caught up in an actual culture war fray it won't be the Right that cold-cocks him. It will be antifa terrorists purging the world for Leftism and the lies the Left believes.
