Bloody shovel

Don't call it a spade


Years ago, when the alt-right was barely beginning to form, many Western patriots hang out at Lawrence Auster’s blog. There was one very interesting guy, called Conservative Swede. Eventually he surrendered, and I don’t know what is of him now. But he had a very interesting blog on Europe and Islam and all this stuff which now has been taken over by the alt-right and Frog twitter.

The best thing I ever read of Conservative Swede is when he wrote that Mecca will be nuked. Eventually. It just has to happen. If you had a computer simulation, and you had both Islam and nuclear power, the odds are that at some point someone is going to throw a nuke at Mecca. Islam just can’t help being violent and conflictive. Mecca is the center of Islam. And so eventually someone is going to get pissed at them and throw a nuke there. It may not even be outsiders. It might be Shi’a. It may even be some crazy Wahabbi who follows the signaling spiral to the end, and the same way the house of Muhammad was destroyed by the Wahabbis, well Mecca itself is a physical relic, so let’s burn it down. At any rate, Mecca will be nuked. It’s the inescapable conclusion of the intrinsic logic of Islam.

I recalled this argument when I was looking at this woman:

So Blair Imani is your typical black American Cathedral activist. She’s 60%+ white, around 110 IQ, she’s even kinda pretty. And most importantly, she’s loud, energetic and relentlessly self-promoting. A psychopathic status maximizer.

It wasn’t turning out that well for her, and so a couple of years ago she converted to Islam. Now you may think that’s a shamelessly opportunistic thing to do. And yeah, that’s precisely the point. But there’s also the detail that she has curly afro hair.


So by wearing the hijab, she actually looks better than before. Or at least not much worse See, this girl is smart. She’s playing many games at the same time.

My point is: the same way that Islam has an internal logic, which may or may not imply the nuking of Mecca. Progressive politics have an internal logic, which is a fall into identity politics and a war of all against all competing for victim pokemon points. Well this girl has it all. She’s black. She’s a woman. She is a “victim of sexual assault”. And she’s Muslim. And of course she’s a loud and energetic self-promoter. And she looks ok.

I just don’t see how she won’t get to be president of the United States. Or maybe not her, but something eerily similar. That’s just how the game works.

    Not that she’ll read this post, but I bet she’s glad someone is paying attention to her.

      • j June 12, 2017 at 16:01

        She is a victim de mi culo (a Ladino expression). A victim is by definition a person defeated, weak, abuse. No one will vote for a victim, and you know it. To reach the top, you have fight in the clandestinity and spend ten years in jail.

        In that scene with Tuck, I find this broad’s face to be eminently punch-able. Really, there’s just a critical mass of everything that’s wrong with the West right there, such that my fist, on its own recognizance, would seek to right all wrongs with one good right cross. It’s a potential Moldylocks moment, to be sure.

    I (a straight white western man) have often toyed with the proposition of converting to Islam and coming out as a trans woman and as a lesbian. My life would not change much, but I would have much more status points. Anyone who disagreed with me I could accuse them of racism (because race is a social construct and my membership of an oppressed minority group (muslim) is equivalent to race, anti-discrimination laws in my country essentially work this way and regard race as something other than purely biological), or sexism or homophobia or transphobia. I would be invincible.

    • spandrell June 12, 2017 at 19:58

      On principle, yeah. But there’s the catch that you need to be “part of the community”, i.e. hanging out with actual leftist weirdos. If you do it alone you’re just a troll. Look at what happened to Rachel Dolezal.

      • Rod Horner June 12, 2017 at 20:29

        Dolezal is a case of over-reach. She could have been a mid-level flunky with her adapted black identity unimpeded, but it wasn’t enough. She wanted top slot activist positioning and power. It simply invited the spotlight and the inevitable unmasking. Sean King knew better, stayed as a blogger and gets to ride on his obvious trans-racial identity.

        But as far as White converts to Islam goes, I’ve met some in my travels and I don’t think they enjoy much of any PC points for their trouble. The women get a smattering of kudoz for being a party to something inherently-prog from their fellow cat ladies; however, the men are viewed as pariahs. Arabs don’t trust white converts and normal whites view them as potentially patriarchal shitlords.

      ” My life would not change much, but I would have much more status points.”

      Points with whom? And why?

      I ask because, as a shitlord in a blue city/state I’ve had no difficulty attaining matrimony, gainful employment and friendship. I’m sure that if I wanted to run for so much as Dog Catcher, that would be a different story. But outside the pursuit of power (i.e. employment in the Cathedral, bureaucracy or elected office), personal politics really doesn’t come up that much. Prog status points, even if acquired in earnest, would not promote my situation in anyway.

      • spandrell June 12, 2017 at 21:10

        That’s a function of your profession. In many others it does help. Increasingly so. Look at how Razib Khan is semi-depressed since he went into academia.

        • Thales June 12, 2017 at 21:34

          Profession is a function of situational awareness. But that’s somewhat tangential. My point is that Prog Pokemon Points are of astronomical utility to the Obamas of the world, but how much do they aid the, for example, Nigerian hoi palloi? It’s mostly, as you say, about the network. “Civil Rights” is just the superficial excuse for a lucky few to attain and retain power. Day-to-day, “real talk” is truth, and even Progs behave as if it were true.

          • Cavalier June 12, 2017 at 22:12

            >the hoi palloi

            1. polloi

            2. “hoi” means “the”

            Go forth and conquer.

                Firstly, I like to think I specialize in helpful and informative assery.

                Secondly, you know I’m right.

                Finally and most importantly, if one is to use it, he might as well get it right – it is, among other things, a shibboleth.

                • spandrell June 13, 2017 at 11:32

                  I’m a descriptivist. And I find the English habit of using Greek and Latin words in their original grammar to be the epitome of pedantry. “the hoi polloi” is by far the most common way of using those words. And for good reason.

                  • Thales June 13, 2017 at 14:15

                    Heh. The status-raging over split infinitives is by far the most virulent and pernicious here in the ‘states.

          • Karl June 13, 2017 at 06:48

            Status Points give you status within a social group. If you don’t like that group, they are less valuable. But nobady can live alone, you need a group. Only if you have you own group, are status points of a different group worthless.

            For many there is no alternative to progressivism. That keeps it going. And that’s why they come down so hard on dissenters.

            • Thales June 13, 2017 at 13:18

              But then why isn’t Prog loyalty alone sufficient? Anyone can swear mighty oaths to the religion of Progress and be in their good graces, especially as a prole. I fail to see the marginal utility in pretending to be Islamic/transgendered/transexual, at least from a status perspective — on the contrary, the potential for backfire is high — just the whiff of irony will trigger an allergic reaction.

            • barnyardboss June 15, 2017 at 17:44

              progs (rabbits: r-selected) only exist in the endless bounty of the homoglobalist empire. dissenters (wolves: k-selected) are rising as the pie started shrinking. The warrens will be culled into oblivion with the coming debt apocalypse. Hope you K-dudes in the blue holes have your bug-out bags packed. PS: really hope that forecast in re black rock in the desert comes true.

              • Cavalier June 16, 2017 at 00:56

                Progressives are more K-selected than your “dissenters” (i.e. connedservatives); they are less profligate, more diligent and hard-working, marry later, have fewer children, invest more resources in them, divorce much, much less, and in general more intensely struggle to exist and persist — as status is zero-sum, the top is always locked in Malthusian conditions.

                Your problem is that when you think of “progs” or “libs” or “Democrats”, you think of some combination of fat, blue-haired feminists, low-T libshit men, or niggers. Friend, those “folks” are neither progs nor libs nor Democrats — they’re just a vote bank.

        I would mostly do it just so I could self righteously persecute those who would have persecuted me for being sexist/racist/transphobic/homophobic/islamophobic.

        It would make my hate righteous under the current regime and give me an opportunity to persecute the persecutors. Hunt the hunters.

        That would be pleasurable in and of itself.

    I like the opening about Mecca eventually being nuked, but I fail to see how it relates to Imani and her inevitable rise. I get that you think they’re both inevitable, but I think the case for radioactive Mecca is stronger.
    In Islam there’s a certain “if I can’t have it, nobody can” justification. If Sunnis are able to continue receiving Western support and continue pushing Shia’s around I could see even an official Iranian sponsored attack.
    With Leftism, they always end up destroying each other over ideology. Imani looks really unassailable now, but eventually there will be someone who comes along and makes her look really pale, blue-eyed, rich and pretty by comparison and everyone Good and Noble will flock to her instead.
    The victimhood Pokemon point chase is the main part of their strange religion. Blair Imani is just not obviously downtrodden enough to last as some kind of leader. Leslie Jones will probably stay relevant longer just based on looks alone.

  6. BaruchK June 12, 2017 at 23:03

    I do not see why it is inevitable that Mecca will eventually be nuked. No feelings about it one way or the other, but it seems to me that functional nukes are expensive and difficult enough to get that someone who goes to all the trouble wouldn’t waste it on Mecca.

    As for the melungeon girl, who looks like Rachel Dolezal, doubt she’d be president. First, “black enough to be considered black, white and pretty enough to conquer the hearts of SWPLs” is a crowded field. Second, women would not vote for a woman who is younger and prettier than they are. Third, the US pretty much reached peak Negro during the Obama administration.

  7. Jimmy Flounderello June 13, 2017 at 03:52

    Since she’s affiliated with Planned Parenthood, perhaps she could convince both blacks and Muslims to abort themselves to oblivion.

  8. With the thoughts you'd be thinkin June 14, 2017 at 06:43

    To be fair Mecca has been sacked and the black stone stolen before by a vegetarian syncretic Shia-Zorastrarian sect.

  9. Joe Göbbels June 14, 2017 at 13:41

    Wouldn’t it be hilarious to troll the PC brigade by referring to the accidemtal London fire as the Kensington Kaffir Attack!

    I don’t know why you make posts bashing Ivanka Trump when this person is out there.

  11. iEQ June 19, 2017 at 15:04

    You should mend it to sociopathic status maximizer.

    At least, they aren’t all psychopathic.
    Aside from that… aside, the description is accurate.

    They’ll be the most upvoted and those with the most people hanging on their lips in every social media setting… you can argue, reason, prove, logicize as much as you want, and will win nobody to your argument.
    One of them will come, throw some apparently random bits of “thoughts”, and in two twos they will have won at least half of the readers/viewers/listeners to whatever thesis they are championing.

    It appears random to people who have low social intelligence, like conundrums and other facts appear as not following any pattern to people who aren’t intelligent enough to decode them.

    So, her IQ may be around 110. But what about her EQ?
    What about the EQ of the Wise Latina in the Supreme Court (I still remember Moldbug’s post on her academic honors…)?
