Overton Window Warriors

515 words

As of late, the New Right has been butting heads with the so-called “skeptic” community; with notable names such as Kraut and Tea, Sargon of Akkad, Thunderfoot, and so on. The so-called “skeptic” community prides itself on a supposed platform of pure rationality backed by evidence, plausibility, and emotionless logical deduction. Putting aside the necessary discussion over whether or not these criteria, alleged to be utilized by the “skeptics,” are in fact the best ones by which to judge socio-cultural norms and philosophies, it must be pointed out that these alleged criteria are, in fact, a simple pretense.

Anyone with an open mind paying close attention to these so-called “skeptics” will notice a peculiar phenomenon. They are, in fact, not “skeptics” at all. This isn’t merely true in the philosophical sense, but in layman’s terms as well. The honest thinker may find it strange that when a “skeptic” confronts a feminist, he will eagerly and smugly cite the latest data relevant to sexual dimorphism and sociological behavioral patterns, and yet at the same time, he will pretend to “skepticism” when confronting the solid data of Bowling Alone, J. Philippe Rushton, or Charles Murray.

This selective “skepticism” is not skepticism, but reluctance and fear. First, understand that the “skeptic” community surrounds specific figures who are little more than egotistical jesters entertaining prideful and spiteful laymen. Their personas entirely consist of smugly showcasing the latest in nutty and irrelevant individuals confined to whatever ideological community they are involved with to the popcorn-readied audience of men and children alike. The funnier the insults and critiques they assault the insane ideologue with, the higher the subscriber count and YouTube views.

This comfort-driven egoism is at the heart of the so-called “skeptic” community. It is no mystery why these individuals take up the most comfortable and safe positions imaginable, and eagerly defend them tooth and nail for the satisfaction of the audience. The audience laughs, they click a “good job” button, and the ego of the “skeptic” inflates a bit more, prompting more of the same.

So what exactly dictates the behavior of the “skeptic” community? It is a smug centrist mob mentality. In other words, where the Overton window lies, is where the contemporary “skeptics” of the now exist. While feminism is certainly promoted by the elites of the world, for average people it is to the ‘left’ of the Overton window. Race realism is loathed by the elites of the world and currently considered undesirable by individuals at large, and is therefore ‘right’ of the Overton window. While one is ideological in its entirety and the other is entirely based in reality, how is the “skeptic” justified in equally dismissing both?

The “skeptics” are the opposite of what they claim to be. They are self-centered, egoistical, safe-thinking simpletons with the coordinated will of the mob directing their beliefs. They couldn’t be less “free thinking” if they tried. If Sargon of Akkad lived in 1930s Soviet Russia, he would publish a newspaper article titled “Yes, the bourgeoisie must be dealt with, but must we use so much violence?”

    Spot on, nothing to add. Short and to the point. Hope to see more of this writer.

    The saying that “the empty can rattles the most” appears to be eminently applicable to “skeptics.”

    As far as I am aware what’s called Skepticism has historically been associated with deriding/debunking/ridiculing ideas of traditional conservatives. It was basically a bunch of apologists for the Left’s political hegemony.

    Suddenly these ‘new’ Skeptics appear on YouTube who broke ranks with that, with criticisms of SJWs, immigration etc. but their skepticism ends at exactly where the mainstream narrative has drawn the boundaries: race, JQ etc, and they find themselves struggling to defend the official line. Obviously they have never seriously considered the issues before.

    Some of these people are clearly very young, very naive, and frankly deeply unappealing but are presenting themselves as thinkers and cultural commentators, which is unfortunate. But I think it’s more unfortunate if we get too dragged down with it. I was surprised to see Spencer in a debate with someone who looked like a twelve year old boy. If Spencer is that desperate for attention it’s a shame for him.

    We do need a quality control about some of the people we choose to debate our ideas with, as there is a danger of giving people too much attention who do not deserve it and we undermine our own brand in doing so.

    To me the most curious of the lot is Thunderfoot, who got his start attacking creationists and Islam from an atheistic and scientific perspective. He then shifted his attention to the less dangerous targets of feminism and junk projects on Kickstarter. He did good work, sounding the alarm when feminism and SJWism encroached into atheist circles with “atheism +”.

    But then he voiced his support for Remain (he had no interest in British sovereignty, but had a vested interested in EU scientific grant money). I must admit I was a subscriber but that was my breaking point. IIRC he also was pro-Clinton.

    He’s unique among the skeptics for his persona of rational scientist, not that it mattered when confronted with race realism. His recent refusal to acknowledge the data that humans have evolved varying levels of intelligence on average is gob-smacking considering many of his early videos vs creationists relied on arguments from evolutionary biology. He offered such air-tight arguments as, “there is no reason to look into that” and “what good will it do to know this”. Pathetic.

    ‘The so-called “skeptic” community prides itself on a supposed platform of pure rationality backed by evidence, plausibility, and emotionless logical deduction’

    Which is the first clue that these guys are frauds right there. Everyone has blind spots, unquestioned ideals e.t.c. Pretending to be rational, above it all e.t.c is just a verbal trick to appear as an authority. It is incredibly childish in its psychology and I notice that jews often do the same thing
