Site Notes: Vox Populi takes a licking and keeps on ticking

Ye Olde Vox Dei aka “Teddy Beale” has at last offended the GoogleGods so very badly that they’ve yanked his very out-of-date but now quaint Blogger platform.

Knowing what an irritating person he was, Vox Dei prepared — long ago and in a slapdash fashion — a redoubt named Vox Popoli – #Arkhaven INFOGALACTIC #Castalia House

The URL is for now: https://www.milobookclub.com/

The new page is pretty much as archaic and bland as the old generic Blogger page but Beales’s still got room to proclaim Trump will “cross that old man river Rubicon”, note bitterly that Jordan Peterson is still about 50 IQ points ahead of him with a much bigger audience, and that some bad Boomer man touched him somewhere sometime but he’s still not going to show you where on the doll.

    Fuuuuk, he looks more like a boomer than I do.
    We know who touched him.
    The guy that did 12 years in the slammer and caused VD to turn weak imbeciles against their parents.
    He can be easily read like a McGuffey primer.

    You forgot the “QTaRd” part…

  • SoylentGreen August 12, 2021, 4:19 AM

    Ya, I used to follow Vox more religiously than today. His anti-boomer retardation eliminated half his audience, I’d say. I still go to his web-site because he can be concise and his commenters are lucid when they aren’t sycophantic. Then again, he seems to hate boomers, women, blacks and commenters… in fact, everyone.

  • bob sykes August 12, 2021, 4:47 AM

    Wow! SoylentGreen is still alive? Do you still blog?

    Ted Beale is tiresome when he’s on his pet rants (boomers, Jordan, boomers…), and he totally is out of touch with US politics, but he has many good posts on economics, culture, immigration etc.

    In some respects, Insty is worse than Vox, because Insty has become a platform for warmongering neocons.

    That there is some descriptive prose, and it made me grin.

  • Jeff Brokaw August 12, 2021, 6:50 AM

    Never a big fan, I would check in once in a while and then check out for many of the reasons mentioned above. He does have some good takes but overall not worth my time.

    And like John V says above, that paragraph is a winner (especially the last phrase) and it made me grin too, showing yet again why AD is always worth my time.

  • lpdbw August 12, 2021, 7:10 AM

    Hey! I thought I was the first one to make that comment about Vox and showing me on the doll where the bad old boomer touched you…
    Although, of course, Gerard’s wordsmithing was better than mine.

  • Aggie August 12, 2021, 7:43 AM

    Oh, you wicked, wicked man. It’s not nice to pick on old ladies.

  • Mill Tone August 12, 2021, 7:46 AM

    Vox Day wrote a tremendous amount of good old American Liberty material, going back to worldnetdaily’s hardcopy edition.

    I appreciate his efforts on behalf of liberty. Then this *kill all the boomers* shit happened. Never understood how one could rationalize that with Christian belief. But then, my IQ, (whatever it is) is likely not as high as his. Meh.

    What Vox Day HAS done, IMHO, is poked fun at the tyrants of the evil empire with his treatment of the nott-vaaxx, and mask wearing morons in general, and for that I applaud him. Sure hope he doesn’t come to my home to try to smother me with my pillow, because then, well, he would be just another tyrant like the one’s he made fun of.

    My gut feel, (prove me wrong) is that Vox Day is on the right side of the battle between GOOD and EVIL. Death to tyrants.

    Haven’t read Vox in years. In many ways he’s fallen down the rabbit hole and done gone Bat Sh_ _ Crazy. Glad he had a backup plan and bamboozled the google though.

  • ghostsniper August 12, 2021, 8:36 AM

    American Liberty? As in Mike Schneider? And Bill Beck?
    I was there, don’t remember a Mill Tone.
    Schneider banned me weekly. Then in 3 days he’d lift it.
    I was a scrapper in my yoot, questioned everything.

  • Dirk August 12, 2021, 10:02 AM

    Never read him, always thought he spoke out of both ends.

    What is it about humans that require us to read others stuff to subconsciously confirm we’re headed in the right direction?

    These bloggers share the very same info available to everybody. Make no mistakes , anymore their is zero news, only propaganda.

    O wait, NY’s Cumos departure was welcome news. I ask myself, who’s greasing the skids on the down side of his fall. Is their any doubt he will land on his feet, like a cat with 12 lives?


  • PGT Beauregard August 12, 2021, 11:11 AM

    Like many on this side of the great divide, Vox makes a lot of good points. He’s thin skinned and spiteful, sure. But if history has taught us anything its “dont walk off a cliff while reading your rule book.” We will need the combined brain and firepower from many flawed individuals. Throwing the baby out with the bathwater has never been good in practice.

    That said, you are spot on as always Gerard

  • Vanderleun August 12, 2021, 11:41 AM

    I accept him with his flaws but I always used to pop into the comments thread of his increasingly unhinged boomer rants and leave the remark:

    “Show us on the doll where the bad boomer touched you.”

    Somehow none of these comments were approved to be seen in the comment thread.

    Around here I interfere with comments and remarks very very rarely. I do but it has to push one of my buttons very very hard.

  • Mike Austin August 12, 2021, 12:39 PM

    Damn Gerard, your final paragraph is comedy gold. I promise to always stay on your good side.

    I read Vox Popoli daily, though noting his faults, which are: 1. Why this odd obsession with “boomers”?; 2. Why this odd obsession with Jordan Peterson?; 3. What explains his short tempered nastiness and arrogance?; 4. He obsesses about how China can easily defeat the US Navy. This is an odd fantasy and reveals a lack of understanding in Military History outside of confected “war games”. It seems to me that Day would relish a Chinese defeat of America; 5. Day is a truly smart guy—he’ll tell you himself, time after time after time—but Hell is full of smart guys.

    All that being said—and that is quite a lot—Day is still on our side. I would enjoy having a beer with you, Gerard, but not with Day.

  • ghostsniper August 12, 2021, 12:43 PM

    I read him off and on for 10 years and never commented until he started that boomer nonsense.
    He doesn’t do debate or discussion well.
    His response is always the same, a revert to absolute childishness at about an 8 yo’s level.
    Tantrums, insults, stamping of feet, and if you push him hard no doubt privately he breaks down and cries like the gurl baby he is.

    He has put out plenty of clues (cries for help?) that his criminal father abused him terribly and now 40 years later he is still seeking restitution from others. He’ll never find it for he searches in vain.

    High IQ? Please.
    Intelligent people don’t brag about their intelligence.

    My take is that he some how gets emotional benefit when he makes an anti boomer post by way of all the fleshy boi’s that pile on. Basement losers. It makes him feel like he is some kind of leader. Leaders lead first, by example, and look at the example VD presents.

    Finally, his new format doesn’t allow for comments so maybe that is the restriction he needs to avoid his childish anti-boomer rants. I imagine in short order he will find a work around. He needs his fix…

  • ghostsniper August 12, 2021, 12:47 PM

    Mike sed: “I would enjoy having a beer with you, Gerard, but not with Day.”
    Before it was half empty you’d have to splatter it upside his head.
    srsly, I think what we see is his on-screen make believe persona. In person he is just a scared little gurl wondering why her daddy abandoned her, again. pathetic and pitiful

  • Gordon Scott August 12, 2021, 12:59 PM

    I found his take on a lot of things to be very illuminating. Yes, he wandered into rant land often, but he had some very sharp analysis.

    Then he started ranting about Jordan Peterson, toward whom he had been neutral, slightly positive. I asked why this changed. I pointed out that while Peterson was (and still is) politically liberal, he had done enormous good, and continued to do so. I pointed out that I wasn’t some random crank; I had supported many of the business ventures.

    I was told to take my money and go, because they didn’t need my kind, and that Jordan Peterson was pretty much evil. I left. I haven’t bought any of his companies’ books.

    A few months later Day published a book that equated Jordan Peterson with either Sauron from LOTR or the evil emperor from Star Wars. Day also predicted Peterson would crash and burn and soon. Now I knew why his attitude toward Peterson had changed. He saw a hole in the market and was going to fill it, but he had to prepare the ground first.

    And he was right about Peterson crashing, but not burning. A health crisis with Peterson’s wife led to a higher dose of an anti-depression med he’d used before. But this time it sent Peterson into a horrible spiral of vicious side effects and withdrawal hell. It nearly killed him more than once. Last I heard, he’s still not fully recovered, but he’s back to doing podcasts and published another book.

    As Gerard wrote, “50 IQ points and a much bigger audience.” One of Peterson’s podcast guests asked, a few weeks back, how many people would see this? I’m sure he expected the standard answer of a popular blogger, “thousands!” Peterson’s reply: “A million.” One could hear the guest’s “Gahkk!” as he realized he was speaking to 100 times more people than he ever had before.

    Incedentally, Peterson’s latest podcast has four guests and is about cryptocurrency. I have not been able to wrap my brain around the whole concept, but this hour-long show has helped me greatly.

    I still go to his site a few times a day, but never comment there. He has run some interesting articles on the Flu That Ate Cincinnati. I also signed up for one of his early go-fund-me campaigns at a high level, but never got the promised goods, except for one poorly done graphic novel. I planned on donating to his movie campaign, but I dropped out in large part because of his rants about how the lunar landings were faked. Uh, no, Vox. They weren’t, and anyone who thinks they were belongs in a straitjacket. I also got very tired of the Boomer drivel, and the endless discussions about gammas and other SSH nonsense.
    When I saw that his site was down, my first thought was that his fundraising schemes had finally caught up with him. It appears that a lot of people are owed either refunds or books on the Castelia label.
    As to his current comics, I’m not in the least impressed, nor even slightly interested in any of them. He keeps mentioning his creative partner on some of this garbage, someone he calls “The Legend”, who apparently once did a little work on a Batman villain. Friends who are more involved in the comics culture than I am tell me that this so-called legend is…mediocre, to be polite. From my standpoint, as a professional grade figure artist, the comics appearing on Arkhaven are at best amateurish, and at worst total garbage.
    I don’t mind if Vox Day, or as I call him to my friends, “Pox Night”, never recovers from this. Maybe he’ll learn some humility,,,and pigs will learn to fly.

  • Bear Claw Chris Lapp August 12, 2021, 1:56 PM

    Not a big fan. Check in occasionally. The boomer thing I always felt it was aimed at the boomers included in TPTB only, but he has never clarified. So indifferent to most whiners without understanding.

  • John Venlet August 12, 2021, 2:00 PM

    Vox’s new link is voxday.net. Sounds like he’s moving from the Millbrook link.

  • Freddo August 12, 2021, 2:27 PM

    Some of the comments above show that Vox Day is at least genius level in getting under peoples skin. Definitely on my daily reading list.

  • ghostsniper August 12, 2021, 2:58 PM

    That’s what you call genius?
    My son did that stuff when he was 3. sheesh…..

  • Joe August 12, 2021, 5:15 PM

    1. Why this odd obsession with “boomers”?;

    – To be part of making Boomers a burning, lasting rhetorical shorthand for what NOT to do. The people who inherited 1950s America, and are leaving us… THIS? And STILL defend the things that got us here, while denying responsibility? Truly a generation of solipsism, wickedness, and desolation.

    If you weren’t one of those wreckers, and I know many Boomers who weren’t, just join the scorn. You needn’t identify with them, and you can have lasting revenge by writing their epitaph in a lasting shorthand rhetorical burn. But most Boomers choose to identify with their fellows instead. Why?

    2. Why this odd obsession with Jordan Peterson?;

    – Because he read what Peterson actually writes, which is not what you think he’s saying. You’d be money ahead picking a random snake-handling preacher to follow instead of that confused (charitable term) Pied Piper.

    3. What explains his short tempered nastiness and arrogance?;

    – VoxDay.net is smart, has little patience for people who haven’t earned the right to be taken seriously, and understands the power of rhetoric. The result is as described.

    Still, a guy who has actually built stuff for the fight (Rabid Puppies, Infogalactic, Legal Legion vs. Indigogo & Patreon, Arktoons, Catalia Library) rather than whining about the left gets a lot of slack from me. Can’t think of a “conservative” pundit who has done 1/10 of that. And many of them could have. Easily.

    I’ll respect the “mean tweets and $2.50 gas” option any day. You?

    4. He obsesses about how China can easily defeat the US Navy. This is an odd fantasy and reveals a lack of understanding in Military History outside of confected “war games”. It seems to me that Day would relish a Chinese defeat of America;

    – Heaven forfend that the people being prepped to kill you and yours for the crime of your skin color might lose a war. America!!!!

    Also, don’t be so sure about that “fantasy” thing. The Pentagon isn’t. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9783807/Navy-disarray-focusing-diversity-training-warfighting-report-says.html

    5. Day is a truly smart guy—he’ll tell you himself, time after time after time—but Hell is full of smart guys.

    – This, right after lamenting why anyone would go after Jordan Peterson? OK, Boomer.

  • ghostsniper August 12, 2021, 6:45 PM

    The shitstain above sed: “OK, Boomer.”

    suck beale dik much asswipe?
    BTW, can you show us on the doll where the bad boomer man touched you?
    Don’t even need to shoot idiots like this in the face, just one good crack across the yap will break it’s 3 oz neck bone.

  • Mike Austin August 13, 2021, 12:35 AM

    Dear Ghostsniper:

    Seems like I touched a nerve in poor Joe. I hope he’s alright.

  • ghostsniper August 13, 2021, 4:22 AM

    @Mike, it’s not alright and it never will be. It’s parents damaged it from birth to basement. Beale is it’s savior. I hope someone kills it.

  • Mike Austin August 13, 2021, 7:01 AM

    Dear Ghostsniper:

    To use Day’s own vocabulary, poor Joe is an obvious gamma fanboi. As such he represents a sort of “rapid response team” that springs into action whenever anyone, anywhere, dare criticize his hero. Every temporal savior, every ideological cause, every Progressive fad, all have guys like Joe. There is no reasoning with such. Laughing at them, yes.

  • Rococco Bougoise August 14, 2021, 11:51 AM

    Beale and his band of nutless wonders, are what Peter Pan looks like all grown up. The fact that he is sponging a far better living off his basement army, than the lives of said army, is some kind of testament. give him the Madoff prize for 2021.

  • Steven J Schellenberg August 16, 2021, 2:23 PM

    He’s right, you know. People are stupid. He’s not.
