Connections between 4-Chan and Politics

View story at Medium.com

A long but informative article connecting 4-Chan to many of our modern issues.  It has an agenda, but is also useful as an examination of a section of the Alt-Right.

I need to think about this more before coming up with writing on how I see this tying to concepts of Manhood and Heathenry.

Labels as Targeting Lasers

Funny title hey? What is the relation. You almost have to share my background to see it, but for those of us that wore green in some form (CADPAT, MARPAT whatever your pattern) its hard not to see. Labels act a lot like lasers from the point of view of those they are used to […]

Why Isn’t Anyone Talking About The Radicalization of Whites?

Definitely worth reading. He is absolutely right that this HAS to be confronted. A LOT of violence has been caused by this and most people ignore it. The recent election exacerbated the problem to an extreme level.

Many of my white friends have become Radicalized

What do white people got to be so angry about? ~ Chris Rock

A while back ago I spoke in great pain on how I’m losing friends fighting racism.  I talked about how one can have friends (white) who will invite you (black person) to a Christmas dinner, but will engage in vehicular manslaughter when it comes to Black Lives Matter protesters.  What I didn’t really discuss was this radicalization process among the white community in America which makes such violent ideas possible.

Radicalization?  You probably never really took a look at it. You’re probably wondering what am I talking about.  Radicalization?  What radicalization?

Radicalization of the White American

On Punching Nazis

This one is not going to have a strong conclusion but, instead, tie in a lot of articles and history even I was unaware of.  It starts here:

He was actually punched a second time but that only has still shots.

Then to arguments over ethics:

And here:

Even Heathens have commented:

But, this morning, I saw this:

In the end, there has been almost a shadow war going on for a long time that is now coming to a head as fascists and white supremacists have come out of the shadows under the current administration.  I think everyone has to make their own determination as to the actions they take BUT that we as heathens CAN educate others on white supremacy.  We have had to look it in the eye more than some.

Article on Symbols of the Alt-Right

As I have encountered a lot of ignorance of the Alt-Right/White Supremacist movements, I find this a good start.  I didn’t know about the moon one myself.

Also always to remember:  88, 18 and 1488

In addition, I had a friend only this week encounter a motorcycle gang member with Nazi affiliation so watch for that too.

A timely reflection

Not my path, but worthy of consideration nevertheless.

The House of Vines

All you can do is what you can do

One of my favorite stories about the Ptolemies comes down to us from the Roman author Claudius Aelianus who compiled his Varia Historia or Historical Miscellany in the middle of the second century of the common era. According to Aelian (1.30) Ptolemy Philometor had a young companion named Galestes with whom he was deeply enamored. Although everyone remarked on the physical beauty of Galestes it was actually his deep wisdom and gentle spirit that had won Ptolemy over. Galestes was always at the side of his king and the pair especially liked to go out riding and hunting together.

Well, one day they were out on an adventure when Galestes spotted some young men who were being led off to the executioner’s block. These were troubled times in the land of Egypt. It seemed like there was constant turmoil – wars…
