Vanity seems to be the sin of choice for many people these days. In the age of likes, shares and subscribers, egos are fed at the click of a button, giving the vain that validation they seek from their peers or so called “fans.” This “celebrity worship” culture has bled into all forms of media these days. The Dissident Right is not exempt from this phenomena – giving narcissists and sociopaths, who are simply seeking an audience for their own egotism, the platform they seek. With the rise of media outlets, podcasts and meme pages in the Dissident Right, a toxic element has risen from the crop of thinkers and brilliant minds who create and move the message forward for our people.
Most of us who have found this “movement” were seeking out content that was a light in the darkness of ClownWorld. We sought the truth in a world that has become nothing but lies and absurdity. We found each other in the dark corners of the internet or political rallies. We followed each other’s social media outlets because we felt less alone and it showed us that there were people out there who had enough of the status quo. From this, rose a world of content creators. Meme-smiths, writers, bloggers, podcasters and musicians all feeding the growing need for an alternative media source. This noble effort was soon subverted by the nihilistic and narcissistic ne’er-do-wells who saw this as a chance for personal gain.
These subversives usually got in on the ground level of a new outlet, a meme page for example. In most cases, they are incredibly charismatic and produce good content. As the page grows and gains more of a following, the praise starts coming in. The atta-boys and genuine appreciation for the content feel good (who doesn’t like a compliment?). But, to other folks, the dopamine high and quasi-celebrity status feeds a toxic character flaw. Afterwards, there comes a shift from the content page – instead of producing right-wing, friendly and traditional content, it becomes a fan club for an edgy contrarian who likes to say the “N-word.” These toxic individuals will start to undercut fellow content creators, who they will perceive as “competition,” in the most underhanded ways imaginable. They may even go as far as to doxx someone who dared disagree with them. This situation is detrimental to the cause and counterproductive to our end goal.
The most important issue for us is the survival of our people. We want our culture, our homes and blood to withstand the test of time. This task cannot be set upon the shoulders of one person alone. By allowing egoism from a select few to go unchecked, truly great content is overlooked or discouraged. Like an old sick lion who attacks healthy cubs on sight, they must be culled to protect the virility of the pride and allow new growth to come in and have the chance to stand on its own merits. We must return to the uplifting content that lifts the spirit of our people and we must “do it for the cause, not the applause.”
We are but threads in the historical tapestry of our people. It takes many threads to create the larger picture that is both our inheritance and our legacy. The fruits of our labor and the future of our movement belong to both our ancestors and our descendants. Sinful pride and vanity have the ability to sow discord from which we may never recover. So, it is imperative that we keep our eyes on what matters most: not our own personal gain or delusions of fame, but the survival of our people. That is the only mission that matters.
Oh, I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am; For this "Fair Land of Freedom" I do not give a damn! I'm glad I fit against it, I only wish we'd won, And I don't want no pardon for anything I done.
