Features that make it effective are decentralization, speed, swarming, and the ability to create and destroy teams at will for any given moment or task. It is the "Army of Davids" that Instapundit wrote about years ago applied to the social and political world. We can use different people, groups, memes at any moment. We're cruel to one another because we're always trying to one up each other, but it is like men ribbing their friends. You are tough on your bros but you fight with them and take punches for them.
Those two bits are why the memes are so strong and so successful. The dissident right has moved the needle in 18 months more than the GOP in a generation. You all are giving normies ammunition to pushback on degeneracy, immigration and the never-ending race horseshit. Roughly 25 years ago, a few blacks took a brick to Reginald Denny's head on national TV and cops had to fall back as they were outgunned. The horror was that the perps basically walked off free and THERE WAS NO PUSHBACK OR OUTRAGE. If that happened today, those perps would have been in jail for a long time. Compare that to the Chicago Torture a few weeks ago. I saw this on Faceborg with whites pissed off. The old rules don't apply. George Zimmerman is a free man because of the counter-narrative you all can push and create. It's a narrative that relies on truth.
AnomalyUK and I pinged each other on the effectiveness of the dissident right in the election, and I pointed to an important fact. The cuck meme and masculinity push, bandwagonning on Trump's machismo did affect the election. Think of the stereotypical image of the GOP as doughy, fat evangelicals waving an American flag and crying over Israel. Consider how the Left is framing the GOP now.
Amazing the change in one election. Add in the rise of feminine TrumpBabes vs. blue hair left-wing womyn on social media, and the morphing of the right was complete. The media is also incredibly out of touch with America, and the Left has no contact with normal gender roles. That negative cartoon is the dad who can beat up other dads, can help you with your car or fixing your damaged roof and probably works a blue collar job.
This is thanks to the anti-cuck stuff of 2015 and then 2016. The importance of this and its effect on the election, is it rebranded GOP enough for the Midwest Big 10 states to flip hard for Trump. Whereas past elections, the Big10 areas might be turned off by the W era GOP pitch, suddenly, putting the evangelical themes to the backburner brought out these old Reagan Democrats. Evangelicals were going to come out anyway. Maybe some voted Johnson but they did so in deep red states to signal to the giant mass of red voters there that they did not approve of Trump.
Can we all also admit that what is going on in the American elite is not just nationalism vs globalism but an intra-elite fight? Interesting possibilities open up. That is way above our paygrade, but we can signal our openness to ideas outside the overton window for different solutions. Do that. Let elites know they have support if they dip a toe in a different pond. Even they want to be liked, and know that others with sober, interesting takes support their risk taking.
The Left controls the media, academia and bureaucracy. You fighting that leviathan? You must come up with interesting ways to fight it. What dissidents have now is truth and the ability to spawn, die and re-spawn when needed. People asking if TRS will die or the AltRight will die or the dissident wave is breaking are not looking at where things are going right, and where this is all headed. The fight has just begun. The Left had no clue there was a real opposition with talented people that would challenge them simply using facts and avoiding their frame. I am a results and goals oriented individual. Let's win for our crowd because it leads to high civilization, a secure future for our progeny and keeps the horrors of Mogadishu at bay.
I hope TRS keeps churning out content as they did great work in 2015/2016. A twitter follower stated how a couple years ago, there were no dissident right podcasts and now, thanks to TRS, there are multiple. I feel bad for the guys doxed. I have privately extended support and a few words of advice to them. What happens is in their hands. No one knows where they are going except them, just like no one knew Spencer's strategy after NPI except him. Spencer has done pretty well since, too.
Forget focusing on one node of the dissident constellation because every node is a weapon against the Left. Cuckservative was coined by 'eloh' at MPC, so who knows where the next brilliant meme or idea will come from the smack the Left and fake Right with daily. Keep attacking the Left. Keep thinking up creative ways to disrupt them. Network, build, and start nudging normies. They have no agency, but you know the time tested truths. Share them and inspire others. Keep lifting, Keep posting.
Men come & go, the memes remain.
