Replace “Liberalism” with “Neoliberalism,” Rod:
And it’s not the end of Neoliberalism. To borrow from Churchill: it’s not the end; it is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. I think the collapse will come fast, maybe in a few years.
This is a very good thing indeed. We’ve seeing the collapse of the rotten Neoliberal world order that has dominated our world since about the late 1970s.
You would think many more people on the left and heterodox economic left would see this. But it’s disappointing how few do.
Instead, what we’re seeing is a type of mental derangement and collective hysteria from most of the Left, who are wrapped up in their contemptibly stupid narrative that Trump is Literally HitlerTM.
In fact, you can see how deranged the Left is in its treatment of Milo Yiannopoulos.
Milo Yiannopoulos is a gay, promiscuous, partly Jewish, cultural libertarian, with a dash of civic/cultural nationalism. He certainly has harsh criticisms of the cultural left, Third Wave Feminism, and SJWism, and he likes to make outrageous statements now and then, but if you listen carefully to what he says, most of what he says is fairly reasonable.
Secondly, Milo has never identified explicitly as Alt Right, and all he ever claimed to do was to report fairly on their movement:
(It is true that Milo downplays the extremism of the hardcore Alt Right, but this is probably because Breitbart and people attracted to it briefly flirted with the label, even though Breitbart’s politics are clearly not hardcore Alt Right, nor white nationalist.)
In fact, Milo explicitly rejects overtly racial white ethno-nationalism:
But for the insane Left, Milo is Literally HitlerTM or a Neo-Nazi, despite the fact that Milo isn’t either of these things.
This is how warped and sick our Leftist political culture is in 2017: a gay, promiscuous, partly Jewish, cultural libertarian who supports some kind of civic nationalism is Literally HitlerTM to the barking mad Left.
Of course, it would be too much to expect Leftists or even the media these days to do their friggin’ research properly and go and carefully research what the *actual* hardcore Alt Right thinks of Milo. If they bothered to do this, they would discover that the actual Alt Right hate and despise Milo with an extreme hatred:
