Ah, a fellow member of the shart left! We're not like these liberal chuds on MSNBC, let me tell ya. We say the f-word (as in "fuck," not "faggot," which is deeply offensive and upsetting) and know which movies came out in 2003. Don't think we're pals just because you're a woke dipshit also, kiddo. Have you even smoked weed out of a soda can? Also, here are my thoughts on the Turkish economy. Did I impress you with my effortless blend of highbrow and lowbrow?

Chapo Trap House is the Charles Bukowski of leftism, in that both of them are embarrassing phases every suburban white kid goes through some time around his sophomore year of college.

Thankfully, most people outgrow it.
>>
>>13636967
It's alright, if a little confused as to what kind of audience they were aiming for. Most of the book serves as a general overview of their ideology seemingly geared towards people unfamiliar with Chapo, but there's a bunch of injokes and references that would go over the heads of anyone who isn't already a fan. It's not a rigorous philosophical examination or even a "guide to revolution" of any kind. It's a pretty decent leftist analysis of contemporary American politics with some jokes thrown in.
>>
>>13638397
hasn't it been around for like 3 years. how can it already qualify as a "phase" "every suburban white kid" goes through
>>
>>13638657

Do you not understand how short pop cultural life cycles are in the 21st century, or do you just not think it's possible for someone to go through a phase that lasts less than three years
>>
>>13636985

Depends on the Chapo, but generally no, they are socdems.

Will is a lukewarm socdem.
Matt is somewhat more to the left, but his obsession with electoralism means he's effectively just socdem.
Virgil is the closest one to being what most people associate with a zoomer leftist, but he's honestly the best because he's the least likely to have his coke habit get in the way of his bits.
Amber is a contrarian, it's fucking hard to figure out what she means at any given point, and she's inconsistent as hell. Union-based labour socialism is her deal, and she hates everything else.
Felix plays too much the retard to know anything about him, but if you listen you can figure out it's a bit. He's often said he's basically read only 3 books in his life, but then he goes on and quote Thomas D'aquinas...
>>
>>13636967
Why would a non elite white male support the left except out of masochism?
>>
>>13637540

You just mad because your imaginary gf thinks about Felix while you are hypothetically inside her.

Chapos are the type of people who claim to be really left wing but sigh reminiscently when they watch Blazing Saddles and say "That movie could NEVER be made today... the world's too politically correct.

>>
>>13638833
Sure, that's why there was a demand for something like Chapo. It's just edgy enough to keep some people on the plantation that might otherwise go to the right.
>>
>>13636967
It's not "high literature" or anything but it is funny and worthwile if you like the show.
>>
>>13638834
Doesn't mean you're not autistic. If you keep doing things like that, one day your life will be ruined by an ultra-SJW who isn't willing to just walk off, but desires to try and get you fired from your job, or publicly smear you.

Is there anyone out there advocating for Absolute transgression and Absolute excess as worthy ends in and of themselves? My insatiable thirst for the infinite cannot longer be contained.

See, but Bill Maher is the Final Boss of insufferable liberal smugness, where the Chapo boys are more interested in faux-transgressiveness. Like Bukowski, the only people who think Chapo is in any way transgressive or edgy are sheltered millennials.

Like Bill Maher was twenty years ago, but certainly not like he is today.

check any cable tv liberal talkshow when they bring on someone like bill kristol or max boot. i mean they're not decidedly ironic per-se, but the irony of having trotskyite soviet emigrees dictating US foreign policy and imperialism is palpable. it's that kind of greater cosmic irony that you can't reduce to a quippy twitter profile

Harvey MANsfield is a straussian and, imho, pretty much the definition of Based. Mansfield even wrote a book called Manliness, which even at the time, was notorious for triggering and BTFO'ing libcucks and feminists. The book opens with a earnest dedication to the troops and the 9/11 first responders, and to be honest I was expecting an apple pie slice of bushzeit kitsch and fox news americana, but no, it's a surprisingly nuanced and complex book about nihilism, the death of god and the end of history, man's excessive nature and woman's immanence. what if the war on terror was the only thing keeping america from descending into full nihilistic managerial gynocracy?

>This book invites—no, demands—a response from its readers. It is impossible not to be drawn in to the provocative (often contentious) discussion that Harvey Mansfield sets before us. This is the first comprehensive study of manliness, a quality both bad and good, mostly male, often intolerant, irrational, and ambitious. Our “gender-neutral society” does not like it but cannot get rid of it.
>Drawing from science, literature, and philosophy, Mansfield examines the layers of manliness, from vulgar aggression, to assertive manliness, to manliness as virtue, and to philosophical manliness. He shows that manliness seeks and welcomes drama, prefers times of war, conflict, and risk, and brings change or restores order at crucial moments. Manly men in their assertiveness raise issues, bring them to the fore, and make them public and political—as for example, the manliness of the women’s movement.
>After a wide-ranging tour from stereotypes to Hemingway and Achilles, to Nietzsche, to feminism, and to Plato, the author returns to today’s problem of “unemployed manliness.” Formulating a reasoned defense of a quality hardly obedient to reason, he urges men, and especially women, to understand and accept manliness, and to give it honest and honorable employment.

>what if the war on terror was the only thing keeping america from descending into full nihilistic managerial gynocracy?

But that's what we're in now, in this timeline where the war on terror happened. So to my eyes Mansfield is a shabbos bitch who supported a war that may have killed off some of the manliest men left in our society for no purpose at all
>>
>>13639537
They died for something greater than them. What more could they demand?

seems like an outdated take today considering how war, at least for americans, has been so thoroughly feminized by drones and proxy conflict. unless you're the actual target of an american invasion, war is a feminized spectacle whose proponents are never remotely in any actual danger.

the average american soldier is stationed in a conflict-free zone, jerking off to porn and playing xbox all day. i guess this is the most logical way to justify the inevitable cutting of veteran pensions.

Max Boot. Even his name is based and aproppriately neoconservative. As a zoomer and a child of soviet refugees, I feel true nostalgia for the decadent Bush era, the noble prospect of spreading democracy around the world and being proud of saying this is who we are. Despite the unease of the aughts, the lamentable gradual loss of our judeochristian identity and grounding on western civilisation, an idealism and a sense of solemn moral purpose shines through, long vanished from the american left and now the american right. As the events of Dayton Ohio prove, alt left ideology has the potential to be a catalyst for violent extremism, appealing as their counterparts in the white supremacist right do, to dissafected young white men who were raised by single mothers or else grew up without a reasonable father figure. What we really need is a renewed militant liberal democracy and a commitment to enlightenment values. Things like lgbt rights and anti racism when properly understood, are a logical development of judeochristian humanist values
>>
>>13639435
Why is chapo soft on Russia? Are we witnessing the birth of a duginist red brown green alliance of illiberalism? The chapo left even go as far to deny all collusion, just as Donald Trump himself. The traditional humanist and democratic values of the left have given way in this case to a violent and dogmatic discourse which is a mirtor image of the far right.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Chapo Trap House. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of socialist theory most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Matt's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Garfield literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who quarantine r/ChapoTrapHouse truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Will's existencial catchphrase "Chapo Let's Go," which itself is a cryptic reference to The Ramones' epic "Blitzkrieg Bop".
I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Felix Biderman's genius unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a r/ChapoTrapHouse tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

yeah but someone like Locke is way more fitting. Locke even has the exact kind of btfoing of the right that they are talking about in his first Treatise on Patriarcha. Locke would undoubtedly have been one of them were he born in this period, he was exactly that sort of person, you can't read that Treatise without being reminded of them.

Hume on the other hand was a very different sort of person, and depicting him shushing someone is retarded, he was one of the most thoughtful and honest men to ever live, and wasn't a dick at all. And again he was a fucking monarchist.

Liberalism is evil and all sensible people know this. The sort of person who seriously defends modern liberalism in 2019 is the sort of person who gets his news from John Oliver.

What actual value does the ideology have?
>Well we have more rights!
Okay but we also have massive debt and failing birthrates and every state service is a ponzi scheme.

>Well we have freedom of speech!
Except we actually don't.

>Well we have fair elections!
Except we actually don't.

>Well we're making progress!
Except we aren't, our infrastructure is collapsing and the people are sliding gradually into debt.

>Well at least we have the future to look forward to!
There is no future anymore because if you're right wing we're being overrun by 80 IQ shitskins who are incapable of civilization, and if you're left-wing we're destroying the planet and everyone is going to die of starvation in 120 degree weather.

>W-well at least we have all those cool apple products to look forward to!
The rare earth elements are all mined in China which is in a death spiral of capital-rich thoroughput investment that will never pay off, and the country is turning into a desert that can't produce food.

>w-w-well people of color are b-b-better off
Open air slave markets in Libya, Africa is about to be colonized by the Chinese who we know are willing to burn minorities alive with flamethrowers in public and laugh about it.

In short, liberalism is evil. It is an opiate that snuffs out the public's ability to reason what is good and evil.

They both shared Allan Bloom as a student, which is why so many Bloom-loving Straussians also tend to have weird Kojevian beliefs that don't fit with the rest of their Straussianism.
