Rant at Nightfall: “Take Your Benzos, Watch Your Porn”: Sunday Night Advice For Self-Righteous Failures |

Anger and resentment can metastasize into hatred and fury at an alarming pace. Often, logic has nothing to do it. But for everyone thinking about joining the mob, we believe there’s a better method of dealing with these uncomfortable feelings, and it starts, unfortunately, with something that’s kind of uncomfortable: Taking responsibility for yourself.

To that end, Twitter user @luinalaska, has some strikingly articulate thoughts:

Some of you have done NOTHING with your life and you’re mad. You have a college degree & a smart phone with access to virtually *anything* and you can barely get out of bed in the morning while you spit on people who built a whole world with nothing but a horse, map, & axe.

You’ve made nothing with access to everything. You’ve conquered nothing. Hell you can’t even conquer yourself. So go tear it all down. Scream into the void how unfair it all is. It’s not that you’ve wasted your short time here. Surely not.

Don’t bother with your own legacy you’re busy shitting on the long dead who aren’t here to care. Go burn down every Starbucks. That’ll show them. Torch the Target. Tear down every monument. Deface every memorial. But what have you built? What do you leave behind?

So take your benzos. Watch your porn. Get Uber to drop off your dinner. Buy an adult coloring book. Have sex with strangers to ease your crippling anxiety. It’s not you. It’s the system really. It isn’t fair. Go cancel someone. Dox someone. They deserve it. You’re the good guy.

Don’t write an epic novel worth building a statue to remember you. Go troll seven year old problematic tweets ever on the hunt for the boogeymen. See now you’ve accomplished something. Cancel everyone. You’re a warrior now. A real hero.

And lastly whatever you do never ever take even a moment to self reflect on your own failures. Never own them. Never take a hint of responsibility. Remember you’re just a helpless victim of circumstances beyond your control. This all means nothing. Its like you weren’t even here.

    I told my children that when the Lefts tore down enough Confederates, the next thing they’ll tear down is Washington, Jefferson and all of the Union generals, too. Reality proves that it will not be undersold: now Gandhi. Churchill. Some black activist congress critter from last century.

    Who needs history? All of those dates and crap nobody cares about anyway. sarc/

    Just stand out of the way when it comes down. You did attend physics class, right?

    Responsibility for yourself – what a concept.

    This kind of common sense is appearing at more and more unlikely places, even among the New Age. Check out this chick:

    Because the one drawback of being free, is that people then expect you to take that freedom, and accomplish something with it.

    Now you know why they love the idea of communism: they think they won’t have to do anything.

    That is one righteous rant. Please, oh please, @luinalaska, don’t hit me with that stick!

    Casey Klahn, they’ve already done it. They’ve even upped the ante of your expectation, exceeded it. The week before last in Boston they defaced the monument to the Massachusetts 54th, the all black regiment that acquitted itself heroically at the Battle of Fort Wagner in Charleston Harbor:
    https://www.wbur.org/artery/2020/06/03/16-statues-memorials-damaged
    This, exactly 123 years to the day it was dedicated on May 31st 1897.
    Elsewhere, rioters also defaced a statue of Lincoln and one of Washington.. But I think vandalizing a memorial to Col. Robert Shaw Gould and Union negro soldiers truly takes the idiot prize. The ignorance, malice and stupidity of these cretinous vandals is truly epic. These tools have know idea what they are about, whose ghosts they dishonor, the demons they may summon.

  • Jewel June 14, 2020, 10:28 PM

    And behold the memorials these spawn of Eloi and Morlocks raise in the place of men who have done things: trash, fires and desolation.

    It was because the Confederate clingers would not let go of their statues that the antifa went after Washington and Jefferson. The cornerstone speech of the Confederacy was enough to prove that confed would be a slave gulag regime, on a comparable par to Nazi. 1776, on the other hand, left the promissory notes for abolition of slavery, and, eventually, abortion, if we want it.

    “My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
    Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    Leftoxenomorphs love that kind of individuals who get up every morning with the mindset of “what am I going to ‘contribute’ today to the world so as to ruin as many people’s lives as I can and make them miserable?”

    It is what rules the lives of karens. All karens are leftoxenomorphs.

    All leftoxenomorphs think like that.

    A man will face a problem with “how do I fix this?”
    A leftoxenomorph will face a problem with “how do I f#ck this up?”

    In a gear box a man will put in lubricant.
    In a gear box a leftoxenomorph will put in rocks.

    If a man says “I want bread” a rational man will tell him “go earn some”
    A leftoxenomorph will tell him “they are stealing your bread from you, go loot some, it’s yours because you need it, you deserve bread because you need it”

    The Frankfurt School of cultural marxism taught them to do their worst:
    Brutalism in architecture.
    Noise instead of music.
    Technological stupidization.
    Despair.
    Hatred for the ‘fun’ of hatred.
    Evil for evil’s sake.

    Leftoxenomorphs hate to see people smile.
    People shouldn’t smile.
    People shouldn’t be happy.

    Misery is the natural state of man unless the obedient, dull stupor of bland obedience to the ant-hill has already being achieved then that is called “happiness”

    But in all worlds previous to the utopian ant-hill, misery must the normal state.

    Miserable men look for a savior. In comes the leftoxenomorph, the communist, the progressive, the “liberal”, the feudal lord wannabee to promise utopia in exchange for obedience and service to the ant-hill.
    Make every man feel guilty for putting a piece of bread, that he earned, in his mouth.
    Tell him that piece of bread isn’t his but that he’s stealing him from a more “needy” one, a “have not” and that’s a sin.
    Why is the “have not” more deserving than him of the piece of bread he earned?
    Because shut up.
    Because shut up, you “toxic” man, you colonialist, you racist, you homophobe, your islamophobe (“religion of piss”), you muh soggy knees and so on and so forth to the elevation of every real or imagined sore ad infinitum.

    I once saw a badly scribbled sign on a wall that said “what’s YOUR sickness?”

    They want for people to feel sick.
    They want for people to be sick.
    They want for people the misery of wallowing in their sickness.
    They want the healthy to think they are sick.

    Sick of Capitalism.
    Sick of America.
    Sick of freedom.
    Sick of decency.
    Sick of not only decency but their aspiration to the concept of decency, itself.

    Who are you, ant, to aspire to be decent?
    Shame on you!!
    All you have to be is obedient.
    The one-hive-mind nomenklatura of your betters will tell you what to think and what to do and when and how.
    Be one with the hive.
    Find safety in obedience.
    Find happiness in compliance.
    Find contentment in not having to think for yourself.
    Ant!

    Look, here, ant, let me explain it to ya: it’s not your fault, it’s whites fault, it’s men’s fault, it’s Capitalists fault, it’s Americans fault, it’s gun owners fault, it’s everybody else fault but yours, you are a good ant, keep obeying and not thinking and you’ll be just fine. Shout!! Burn!! Throw bricks!! Call everybody a “racist” Everything will be great!!

    Leftoxenomorphs see their job in the world to make men desolate. Enough desolation will bring about utopia.
    Desolation and destruction are leftoxenomorphs stock-in-trade.

    The “Alien” xenomorph’s blood is a powerful acid that burns though everything.
    The leftoxenomorph ideas are an evil moral acid that dissolves humanity in a human brain and instills in the remains an unquenchable thirst for destruction of anything human and obedience to the one-hive-mind.

    Have you noticed their swarm-point-and-screech modus operandi?
    Many species of insects act like that toward their enemies.
    Coincidence?
    Nope.

    Have you noticed their frequent strange hair colors?
    They think it’s woke and rebellious.
    It’s aposematism.
    The frog is poisonous.
    The two leftoxenomorphs, too.

    My two millennial daughters, both quite socially woke, are too busy putting in long hours at work to have time to go and protest anything.

    The oldest kept her clerk’s job at a pet food store while most of her co-workers stopped coming in, because they were too scared to work around the public and catch the plague. The youngest got laid off and within two weeks found a physically demanding, dirty job working outside at a garden nursery-in a mask in the hot sun. She is mobbed daily by customers angry that the nursery has sold all their tomato and sunflower plants. Her friends are scattered around the country and are still sitting at home, laid off from jobs since March, waiting for their government handout in the form of unemployment and food stamps.

    I asked both girls if they had learned anything from all of this mess. They said: always have an emergency fund saved up and always get out there and find a new job when you lose your current one. Suddenly, Mom and Dad are wizened gurus of wisdom! I added a third: never, ever, ever sit around waiting for a handout from the government, because it may or may not come.

    Their friends are getting desperate, scared, and angry. The unemployment checks have yet to start, the government stimulus check is gone, rent and car payments and student loans are coming due, and they are getting low on quinoa and tofu. They spend their days typing angry responses on their FB and twit pages to show their outrage on whatever the latest drama is. They could be out working. There are plenty of places hiring. But those jobs are beneath them or too hard or too dirty, and they feel entitled to collect unemployment and food stamps. Meanwhile, my daughters get up at the crack of dawn and go out and get it done. No time to make signs or go on protest marches. Life will teach us hard lessons.

    Annie Rose sed: “…physically demanding, dirty job working outside at a garden nursery…”
    =======
    Sounds like my kinda gurl, if I was 50 years younger.

    Healthy, not afraid to get dirty, willing, and radiantly gorgeous inside and out.
    She’s learning things now that may help herself and others the rest of her life if she pays attention.

    Yes, ye oldt nest egg. A staple from reality daze, not so much any more, to the terror of those forgetful of the past. The only time I ever filed for unemployment was back in 1978 when I got out of the army and was still largely wet behind the ears.

    I was working “under the table” in concrete construction with my add and looking for full time employment in the architectural field. My dad paid well, in cash, each friday and 8 of them friday’s came and went before I saw the first unemployment check. I was living at my parents house at the time and my 70′ Camaro SS was long paid for so there was no pressure to pay bills thankfully.

    If all I did was sit around waiting for the handout (actually, payback, from money that had been stolen from me for 8 years prior), life would have been very gray. No dope, no beer, no gurlz, no gas money, nothing. My dad paid me 5 bux an hour cash or 200+ per week in the era when gas was 35 cents a gallon for the good stuff and a whopper was half a buk. 200 bux went a long way back then so it was good to be outside baking (in July 1978 while working on the concrete tie-beams on the 5th floor of the “Focal Point” condominium project in Fort Myers, FL the air temperature on that concrete slab was a recorded 130 degrees at 2pm) in that southwest Florida sun 8 hours a day keeping fit, learning a trade that would benefit me all of my life.

    The army gave me $5800 when I got out for being a good boy for 4 years and that made a nice buffer, or nest egg. My class A uniform was dry cleaned and stored in my closet and inside one of the side pockets is a $100 from that nest egg where it has resided 42 years this coming Friday the 19th. When that c note is 50 years old I’ll be 73 years old and I’m going to take it out and treat myself to a nice fat catfeesh supper somewhere and finally enjoy my little hidden nest egg.

    @luinalaska’s rant’s spot on, aimed more at the lower forty eight than up here, of course.

    None the less, we’ve far more than our fair share of crazies here on top of the world, here at the end of the road where they can’t go any further. Mostly they’re (we’re?) not a problem and we can store the worst of them within the university system and sent the very worst down to Juneau, the state capital, or the very very worst (Lisa Murkowski) off to Washington.

    Alas the ‘you owe me(s)’, the ‘It’s all your fault(ers)’, etc., are just as loud, if not louder, and annoying as elsewhere.

    Our big advantage is population density, one person per square mile, hence most of the crazies are at well more than arm’s length.

    “Unless a man has the talents to make something of himself, freedom is an irksome burden. Of what avail is freedom to choose if the self be ineffectual? We join a mass movement to escape individual responsibility, or, in the words of the ardent young Nazi, ‘to be free from freedom.’ It was not sheer hypocrisy when the rank-and-file Nazis declared themselves not guilty of all the enormities they had committed. They considered themselves cheated and maligned when made to shoulder responsibility for obeying orders. Had they not joined the Nazi movement in order to be free from responsibility?” ― Eric Hoffer, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements

    I got kicked off a mailing list for suggesting that we could blow the High Bridge and keep people from invading from Portland. Some woman from Missouri got so pissed off at me. She insisted the people from Portland would come out and cut down all the trees.

    We are dealing with people that are angry that you might be able to protect yourself and delusional about the world around them.
