All leftist attacks are ones of self-projection. Accuse someone of hurting children? All it really means is that they are Podesta-types themselves.
gework said:Cerović Is An A-list killer. Like Trump he thrives on conflict and Spartan battle; an area where the left fail miserably. The beauty of his game is that he forces the left into bad optics. We're in a situation when the left will typically rush to the defence of anyone who is under criticism from us. Occasionally their actions are so bad the optics of defending a Weinstein - not that they haven't rushed to the defence of all manner of other creeps - is too bad. But the more threatened they are the more likely they are to ignore how bad they will look and just side with their tribe.
This will push the less political and less idealogical either towards us ( Candece Owens ) or to the sidelines.
That Mike is one of the few people who has become an international name in the battle from his own systems and his not backing down and fuck you attitude drives these people nuts. They got used to knowing they could button mild mannered conservatives up by negatively characterising them.
In the chasm they've created of largely banning conservatives with outrage culture they've forced the creation of a new generation of, for lack of a better word, conservatives who are thrived by battling their outrage culture.
So while Mike is rooting around for weird peado types, who the left won't disavow, the big money boys at Shareblue are splicing together fake child abuse videos. Terrible optics.
The left pioneered the tactics of scraping around every dark corner, infiltrating organisations to bring down their enemies. They should have left it, as it's now being turned on them more effectively. The left's biggest scalp was conservacuck, Bill O'Reilly. The result of that is he was replaced by Tucker Carlson, who gets better ratings, especially online and in the youth demo which has dwindled dramatically elsewhere in the dying MSM. And that was all backed by billionaire donnors. The Trump wing is far more effective with a few shitposters working independently from home.
The left have never had arguements. They've only had outrage culture to make themselves look good and their opponents bad. But now with their rabid calls for censorship, siding with the biggest corporations in history against the little guy, being in bed with Goldman-Eu-Monsanto-MSM etc. On virtually every issue they're not looking so good. Mike and others are herding them into making themselves look bad. The worse they look and the less effective their outrage is against their opponents they will have no option but to use their outrage culture against themselves.
Pretty much whatever we say is bad, the left starts running towards to defend. Radical Islam, Iran, Kim Jong-Un, Sharia Law. And anything we may casually be associated they run from: two scoops and steaks with ketchup. If you were wondering why Fake News' Brian Stelter brought back the man boobs. . .
We need to weaponise their Achilles Heel by going after their ranks of peadophilles. They have no option but to defend them.

godfather dust said:Mike Cernovich is a public figure but he holds no power (unlike media talking heads, Hollywood rapists and pedophiles, politicians) so any attacks are more personal. I hate to sound liberal ("prejudice plus power is racism" concept is utter garbage) but saying terrible things to Mike Cernovich is not "speaking truth to power," unlike talking shit to people who are actually making sociopathic power plays behind closed doors.
edit: also Cernovich's greatest crime against the left was the "Pizzagate hoax," which if you hadn't noticed was never actually debunked, Comet Pizza got lucky with an idiot "right wing (CIA op)" bringing a gun in the place.
Castelnau said:I think Cernovich fills a important role and he does great work but he can be a ass sometimes.
I'm sure he has a lot of annoying people tweeting stuff at him but what's with the "I'm blocking you" power trip? Its not even liberal trolls sometimes its just people that ask him a question he deems stupid. He does it all the time on Periscope too. I've never seen a person on the dissident right act like this besides him.
He also stupidly posts pics and video of his toddler like he's Kelly Ripa or something and putting his kids life in danger.
Sooth said:Mike had a bigger impact on the culture when he was catering to a small number of men using his advice to better themselves rather than being the political barker that he is now.
He mentioned on Twitter today that he wants to take a break and fire up the old non political podcast again. He says this every now and then but always gets drawn back into the drama. Hopefully he does it this time.
I image there's a certain adrenaline and dopamine rush in doing what he's doing. It may be hard to get away from it.
