Recalling we are in a war for survival, we must always be examining every event with some level of dispassion. We must always ask: How can this event advance the cause? The Zman made a few points today in his post, Rittenhouse Trial, that I believe bear pondering. Specifically he said:
This trial is probably a pivot point. The good men looking away do so with the certainty that their fellow citizens on the jury will do the right thing. They still trust the system even though they see the systemic corruption. If the jury sends this young man to prison many more eyes will be opened to the reality of this age. Not all, as some people put all of their efforts to remaining blissfully unaware. Theirs is a life of willful ignorance and a selfish disregard for the suffering of others.
For those who have made the journey to this side of the great divide and see things as they are, this trial is just another opportunity. If the jury does the right thing, then the issue is why this kid was persecuted by these ghouls. If he is found guilty then the issue is the grotesque injustice at the hands of a savage mob of fanatics. The dissident is an opportunist, using every event to press a partisan case. The Rittenhouse case is just one more story in a long struggle for Western civilization.
That is critical. We often fall into the trap of seeing things in isolation. We must instead view this trial in light of all else that is going on: the replacement of heritage Americans, the endless pushing of degeneracy, the systematic dismantling of the economic system, the demonization of White people.
Should Kyle be found guilty, our rage will be justified but rage alone won't accomplish a damn thing. We must channel that energy into using the injustice to hammer the conditioning of those who are drifting our way but not quite here. I appreciate what the Zman said: The dissident is an opportunist, using every event to press a partisan case. That is well put.
Think about prominent black or Jewish advocates. For the black advocate, everything is an example of "White supremacy" keeping the black man down, even when no White people are involved in an incident. A black guy shooting into a crowd of other blacks is blamed on Whitey because they are always on message. The same is true with pro-Jewish groups. No matter how justified the criticism, any critique of a Jew or of Israel is handled the same: accusations of "antisemitism".
The dissident must always be on message, and see the opportunity in every event, even when we are raging at the injustice.
The Covington Catholic kids were a good example. These kids were just minding their own business while lunatics were screaming at them and they were vilified by the media. As the truth came out, it was a great opportunity to show again how the media is biased against heritage Americans. It nudged more and more White normies awake because they realized that it could have been their sons being slandered and threatened.
The trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, should it go sour, will be a way to remind normie White parents that their kids are supposed to allow themselves to be beaten or even killed and that to defend themselves or stand up for what is right might mean a prison sentence. We all like to shit on normies but that isn't the right tactic, not in every circumstance. More about that in a post coming soon....
Should Kyle be convicted, be prepared to talk about how he was just a regular kid trying to do the right thing, wonder out loud if the justice system even works for us anymore, talk about the corrupt media and government working hand in glove, make note that the state seemed more enthusiastic about prosecuting a 17 year old for defending himself than it was in protecting the people and businesses under attack by Communist agitators. Be smart and be strategic. Use this for whatever positive we can get out of it. I still, probably naively, hope for a just verdict likely tomorrow but however it turns out, we need to use it to our advantage. Our enemies certainly will.
