Despite all the howling of the mainstream media, the Republicrat Party, and the chattering class, the events in Washington on January 6, 2021, were a strategic victory for the political Right, and a big one. Why? Because the Right showed it could fight back.
Last summer, the Left rioted, looted, and burned in many of our cities, and in most cases the charges against those doing the looting and burning were dropped. Conservatives have looked on, mute, as the Left ripped down statues of their ancestors and banned their symbols. The “woke” crowd was praised as it condemned whites, men, and straights and demanded they grovel in the dirt or be “cancelled”, losing their jobs.
On January 6, that came to an end. The Right not only called the Left, it raised it by all the gold in Ft. Knox. The Left looted and burned small businesses; the Right took the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Put that in your pot pipe and smoke it, said the Right to the Left.
The Establishment is calling the events of January 6 an “insurrection”. A more accurate term is a “revolt”. The oppressed majority revolted against an elite that simultaneously despises them and lives off their tax money. The “makers” revolted against the “takers”. Whites, males, non-feminist women (one of whom gave her life) and straights revolted against the cultural Marxism that condemns them as evil regardless of what individuals do.
The Biden transition team gave dramatic evidence of why that revolt came about. Last week it announced the “anti-racism” training cancelled by President Trump will be re-installed for all federal workers and contractors. These are Maoist “self-criticism” sessions in which whites must proclaim their “racism”, apologize to blacks and other non-whites and learn to mouth the lies cultural Marxism demands. Anyone who doesn’t follow the script gets fired and blackballed.
Another strategic victory for the Right, still playing out, is that the two parties that rule Washington came together so openly that even the dullest civics teacher must acknowledge we live in a one-party state. That fact legitimizes revolt: in a one-party state, revolt is the only way dissidents can affect the political process. They are otherwise without representation. President Trump did represent them, which is why the Establishment so hates him and will continue to persecute him even after he leaves office.
Despite its overall strategic victory, the Right needs to draw some lessons from the events of January 6. The most important is, keep it peaceful. If a crowd is big enough, it can push its way into buildings without offering violence to persons or property. In this kind of war, the way you win is by suffering casualties, not by inflicting them. Every casualty becomes a martyr, and you win by accumulating martyrs. That is how Christianity conquered the Roman Empire, it is how the civil rights movement won in the 1950s and ‘60s and it is how the Left is trying to win the culture war now. They get this, and the Right must learn it or lose.
Under no circumstances should the Right vandalize, loot, or burn. The point here is to offer a contrast with the Left. Those actions, which they cannot control because of the nature of their forces, hurt the Left. We should respond with positive actions, e.g. if they tear down a statue of one of our heroes, we should put a new one up in a place we control.
Under no circumstances should the Right injure police. The death of a Capitol Police officer on January 6 was a crime, a tragedy, and a blunder. Most cops are on our side in the culture war. Because the Left hates them, we should support and protect them. In any mass action, the Right should have leaders in the crowd whose job it is to prevent face-offs with the police. Mass action is possible without violence, especially violence against the cops. They don’t want to hurt us, and we should never hurt them, even if that means we get hurt ourselves. Those who have read Thomas Hobbes’ book Victoria were not surprised by the events on January 6. In Victoria the federal government’s attempts to force cultural Marxism down the throat of every American undermine its legitimacy to the point where the state itself disintegrates. If America is to avoid that fate, the Establishment needs to read the handwriting left on the walls of the Capitol on January 6.
