In my first article, I spoke to the importance of using non-standard strategies to outflank Antifa and ensure the ascendance of our movement. We didn't have to advance THROUGH Antifa, we had to advance AROUND them, in order to engage their academic masters directly. Deny battle where they're strong, and seek battle where they're weak. Well, it seems a bit surreal to say this just 2 weeks later (maybe Dick Spencer has been taking my advice), but we've just seen this proven in Auburn.
Before that though, let me touch on the other big happening this last week: Berkeley. Our auxiliaries decided they wanted to gather up in an occupied zone and dare Antifa to come after them, and discovered once again that Antifa doesn't play nice. Reports of the usual firecrackers, rocks, and broken bottles were again compounded with Police pulling out and standing down, leaving Lauren Southern (Warbride Extraordinaire) and her devoted and disarmed orbiters to fend for themselves. Thankfully, sheer numbers, experience, and grit led to the righteous punch seen round the world and chased Antifa out of their own victory square.
Now, this got a lot of traction, not least of which for all the Mouldylocks memes, but what was the ultimate result? What was the gain for us? Sure, a few skulls got knocked around and Antifa even admits they got rocked, but as I mentioned, street violence has a minimal impact on actual politics. There was a PR boon as it was shown how absurdly violent Leftists get around the Right, but it's quickly being spun by the usual outlets as some outgrowth of a Leftist effort to hold rallies about Trump's tax returns. Even when actually beating Leftists makes us feel good, it does little to break their stranglehold. This isn't optimal strategy; we're advancing through well enough, but encountering a lot of unnecessary noise flak all around us.
Now let's go to last night's event in Auburn; Richard Spencer was invited to speak, but his event was initially canceled due to “security concerns”. This really means “We like our campus to not get burned down and we won't arrest our students even if they're the ones burning it”, but that's another problem. Spencer was all set to speak anyway, with Mike Enoch and the Vandal Clan on site to provide assorted backup. Until this afternoon, it looked primed and ready to be a Berkeley gone wrong. It was public, it was a small group, and we'd announced our intentions clearly.
Then, a breakthrough: the legal complaint Spencer filed bore out, and the initial plan to use Foy Auditorium was reinstated. Protestors were allowed outside, but the hall would stay open only for the audience, the guests, and security from Police and Spencer's staff. This returned Auburn to what it needed to be: a clear, uncontested platform which violence by our opponents could not distract from. This was the opposite of Berkeley; it let us circumvent Antifa completely.
Richard's speech was nothing short of wonderful, and you can watch it here. But the content of the speech isn't as important as the act itself. Spencer, on a Public University campus, delivered a coherent vision of the world and our politics that is completely at odds with the Left while the Left was utterly powerless to prevent it. They thought their threats of violence (tacitly supported by the University) would be enough to put our brothers in a spot where they had to engage Antifa. They expected us to grit our teeth, take it into the streets, and lose the message through all the rocks, fists, and screeching. They expected to make us flee in Ubers and in fear for our lives. Instead? Antifa had their faces exposed, enforces arrested, and protesters trolled by a goddamn carrot. All while stuck behind barriers and monitored by a perimeter of dedicated police officers. They starting to look like ineffectual children yet?
The essential point is this: Auburn does what Berkeley could never do. It let us engage academia without ever having to acknowledge Antifa's existence. Sure, some of the Q&A was well-refuted fodder for us, but consider that plenty of Normies may have never taken us seriously before because they'd heard these quippy talking points and hadn't seen them refuted. Even if that's disingenuous on their part, it's killed their dissonance. We even got some armchair intellectual points out of the way (Guns, Germs, & Steel eternally BTFO) and made most of the disruptive elements in the room just seem like idiots. With that, Spencer and Enoch made their getaway free and clear, with not a bit of fuss from the violent elements outside. We went AROUND Antifa with knowledge and determination, and planted our flag in their heartland.
To harken back to my other article, Cartago Nova has fallen. Spencer is triumphant, and I fully expect a full erosion of Antifa's will to fight by 2018, and a subsequent battle of the Midterms to leave us in a spot to strike a strong blow on the Academics and Media. Fabian Tactics will see us through to the end, while our meatspace meetups draw us closer to total dominance.
Hail Spencer Auburnus! Hail the Hero of the Republic! Hail Victory!
