The New New Right Was Forged in Greed and White Backlash

The matter of money should not be understated. Radical left movements, unlike the New Right, are not popular among billionaire funders; that’s what happens when you challenge the actual “regime” of capital. To highlight the path not chosen by the New Right, then, is to show their active desire not for liberation but for domination — which is nothing new on the right at all.

The New York Times Is Wrong: China Has No Leverage Over Twitter

Everyone has the right to criticize Musk’s purchase of Twitter and the US government can investigate it if they have a legitimate reason to, but none of that has anything to do with China, which should be left out of this controversy.

Propaganda:

Elon Musk’s business ties to China draw scrutiny after Twitter purchase

My commentary: They conveniently omit Musk’s contracts with the US government. Also, I’ve already debunked the Xinjiang issue and the Hong Kong protests weren’t about ‘democracy.’

Black Lives Matter purchases $6 million property with donation money

Allegations of financial mismanagement among supposed leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM)—as well as questions surrounding the true character of the organization—continue to unfold following a recent New York Magazine report revealing the group purchased a $6 million luxury home in southern California with money that had been donated to the BLMGNF (Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the official title of the only actual national organization).

How the Left betrayed the Truckers + Elites Are Smearing Truckers Because We’re Doing Their Job Representing the People

How the Left betrayed the Truckers

Ottawa’s truckers are a symptom of the massive class divide that is opening up across the West. Marxists are sticking their heads in the sand about this generational moment, or papering it over with absurd topsy-turvy leaps. In one recent display of moon logic, the Canadian activist, writer and self-described socialist Nora Loreto complained that “labour” was invisible in the resistance to the “fascist” truckers that had occupied Ottawa. An exasperated comrade chimed in with a story of being a shop steward for a teamster (truck driver) union, and — horror of horrors — the painful truth was that many teamsters were more likely to be in the protest themselves than protesting against it.

The exchange is modern Western Leftism in a nutshell. Is there a single better illustration of the contradictions of the moment? An “activist” and organiser” recoiling in horror at a bunch of truckers — people who work in the real, material economy, ferrying the foodstuffs and goods we all depend on to survive — staging a political protest, only to then ask “but where is the organised working class in all of this?”. Isn’t it obvious to the point of parody that the workers are the people inside the trucks?
