    An interesting remark made in a thread about alleged alt-righter Anthony Fantano on ILX:

    this stuff keeps making me turn over something I brought up on the Bill Hicks thread, which is how the alt-right/gamergate/whatever free speech steez is like a weaponized zombie political philosophy that's a reconstituted and repurposed leftover from the left's fights against the puritanical religious right in the 20th century. Except the internet basically rendered the religious right completely irrelevant and largely mute in the face of the overwhelming evidence that the general populace of America loves pornography, graphic violence, saying whatever-the-fuck, etc. That enemy is gone, rendered impotent in terms of culture wars - but the tactics and arguments and views developed to fight them (incl the "pushing the envelope"/"let's see how offensive we can be" styles of standup comedians, rappers/musicians, and various other cultural players) have hung around and been kept alive. But there is no Moral Majority or PMRC to fight against now. The only ones attempting to place limits (and these aren't even gov't-mandated limits, as in the past!) on what's acceptable cultural discourse are on the left, and so the fire gets turned on them. It's a weird ahistorical inversion

    Yiannopoulos in particular is clearly not just a racist and misogynist but also a contemptible coward and an idiot, advancing his career by aligning himself with the likes of Mike Pence, the exact Christian analogue of the Muslim homophobic he constantly rails against. And I wonder what he (and Thiel, for that matter) make of "Daddy's" latest public engagement date:

    During his trial in 1951, Evola denied being a fascist and instead referred to himself as a "superfascist".

    You're such a liar, Luka Vandross.

    i mean i know it seems crazy that our vim would be so far ahead of the curve but remember he began corresponding with 'Menicus Moldbug' almost ten years ago now.

    vimothy sent me this poem hes written this morning. he asked my opinion of it as one poet to another.

    Consider all the human dregs:
    The losers, misfits, cads, bad eggs—
    The scoundrel, liar, thief, and worm
    Engendered from substandard sperm.

    Think also of conformist clods
    Demanding worship for the gods
    Of mass opinion, common talk,
    And orthodoxy’s pious squawk.

    Recall how these folk always find
    A way to wreck your peace of mind,
    Insisting on your acquiescence
    To last week’s newest obsolescence.

    Imagine all the troublous strife
    They stir up in the course of life—
    The way they throw a monkey wrench
    In well-laid plans. And what a stench

    Each crackpot notion and idea
    Distills into the atmosphere,
    Reducing what was clean and nice
    To squalid clouds of crime and vice.

    Forget about these worthless scum
    And the cesspools they hail from.
    Work, have fun, pile wealth in heaps—
    Ignore these smug, obtrusive creeps,

    For losers think they’re special stuff
    Like grubby diamonds in the rough,
    And always join the latest craze
    To give their self-esteem a raise,

    While righteous types, subdued and prim,
    Want you to be grave and grim.
    Close your nostrils to their smell—
    You beat them both by living well.

    Tbh, I've never read Evola and don't know much about him other than his popularity with the far right.
