Back in 2014, The Onion ran an article titled “Woman Takes Short Half-Hour Break From Being Feminist To Enjoy TV Show.” In the article, the author(s) mocked the modern Left’s attempt to problematize everything to the point that individuals can’t enjoy media without feeling like they’re perpetuating systems of violence. Indeed, the line of thinking spearheaded by claims such as “oh, X did something bad, therefore I can’t enjoy their work” is what leads to blogs like Your Fave Is Problematic, Laci Green saying “[t]he truth is, literally everyone and everything is problematic,” and other attempts to suck the life out of anything fun. Is the trend of ruthlessly slaughtering enjoyment confined only to the Regressive Left, however? Of course not since, at the end of the day, all political ideologies circle back around towards one another. Indeed, in our wonderful Current YearTM, both the Regressive Left and the Alt-Right are filled with different but equally obnoxious tone police, media killjoys, and cry babies. We have entered a world where Laci Green and Lana Lokteff are more closely linked than one would imagine.
While the trend of problematizing everything has been a major staple of the modern Left’s cultural movement in recent years, the Alt-Right — the “champions of free speech” — have also begun purity spiraling and virtue signalling (albeit in the other direction). If one browses Red Ice TV’s videos on popular culture, one sees the same generic rallying cry over and over again: “X is anti-White! It’s white genocide!” These claims are all well and good when one is talking about or critiquing a policy proposal, for example, but as is increasingly the case on the Alt-Right, pop-culture is being attacked with the same tactics and anger that Social Justice Warriors utilize. Just as with the modern Leftist who tries to problematize everything and claims that everything is racist/sexist/homophobic/etc., the Alt-Righter is increasingly falling into the same pit of virtue signaling by saying everything is anti-White or is a Jewish conspiracy to the point that one cannot even sit down and watch a film without being told “the Jews are waging psychological warfare on you!” Indeed, when Star Wars: The Force Awakens was about to come out, the asinine #BoycottStarWarsVII campaign grew and FreemanTV said,
#BoycottStarWarsVII has opened minds to the concept of White Genocide. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is being called “anti-white propaganda” and Twitter is ablaze with users calling J.J. Abrams a “Jewish activist”. Abrams, and most of the cast of Star Wars, are Jewish. Does Stars Wars propaganda connect with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion?
Further, FreemanTV went on to claim that J.J. Abrams “has been involved in social engineering with the CIA for decades” and that Star Wars Episode VII was an attempt to make White people hate themselves. The trend, of course, continued with the #DumpStarWars campaign boycotting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story claiming that the film was another attack by the Jewish media on the White man. What’s more, most recently in their own attempt to problematize everything, the Alt-Right wants people to cancel their Netflix subscriptions because the streaming service will be running a show called “Dear White People.” Clearly, Netflix is in cahoots with the globalists who are trying to weed out the White race one sub-par comedy show at a time[.]
I’ll be honest with you, there was a time when the Alt-Right could be taken somewhat seriously and may have even had some valid points…but those days are long gone. The Alt-Right, with its claims of psychological warfare against White people and actions that mimic the absurdity of modern Leftism, identity politics, and the Social Justice Warriors that its constituents critiqued just a few years ago, has become as worthless and as much of a joke as the Regressive Left. Where one side tries to claim that everything is racist/sexist/homophobic/etc., the other tries to show that everything is an anti-White Jewish conspiracy. The end result of this trend is the same, it just manifests itself in different forms: in the former scenario, one watches a film on Netflix and thinks “oh my, there are too many white people…and look, a female with not as much character development!” while in the latter scenario, one watches the same film and thinks “the White Aryan lead locked eyes with the black character! I told you, the Jews are trying to destroy the strength of our people!”
In both cases, neither party can shut up and enjoy the film, and I for one would hate going to the movies with Laci Green just as much as I would hate seeing any modern film with Lana Lokteff; both instances would be worse than an eternity in Hell with Laci on the Left saying “look, it’s so sexist!” and Lana on the right saying “look, it’s so anti-White!” Long gone are the days of not taking everything so seriously.
