Deny, Dismiss, Defame, Dominate
From immigration to NSA-Big Tech surveillance of American citizens to critical race theory to transgenderism, today’s major political battles are initiated and won by leftists using the same playbook over and over again. Like an antibiotic-resistant supervirus, the most effective political operatives of our time have developed certain reflexes to inoculate themselves from host termination.
It’s important to recognize and understand their tactics, not least to consider what they portend for agendas which have yet to reach fruition.
The purpose of this essay is, through the lens of the transgender issue, to elaborate on a meme created by Aimee Terese, which encapsulates the classic pattern of liberal political manipulation: deny, dismiss, defame, dominate. The four-step process is a reflex. It is deployed both in a moment all at once and over long periods of time in a more drawn-out manner. These steps often bleed into one another; obfuscation is the point.
Step One: Deny
In 2015, Jordan B. Peterson experienced his first viral moment, when he stood his ground against liberal protestors who had come to attack him for publicly opposing Canadian Bill C-16, which mandated the use of preferred pronouns, forcing anyone and everyone to comply with the delusions of gender-dysphoric people under the threat of loss of employment. Following the landmark Obergefell decision, this was among the first in a series of international legal aggressions purported to advance transgender “rights,” redefined through the American tradition as entitlements.
When the proposition of an extremely unpopular liberal political position engenders resistance in well-adjusted, even apolitical or “classically liberal” people, leftists first dampen opposition by insistently denying that the issue at hand is even real. At the time, Peterson was branded as a loon, totally detached from reality, for suggesting that, historically speaking, compelled language has a certain communistic quality that leads inevitably to totalitarianism.
What are you even talking about? The trans activists opined. Trans people’s right to be publicly identified by their private sexual proclivity has nothing to do with your rights. This has nothing to do with the USSR. You can’t even draw a straight line from one to the other. You’re making things up to justify your own transphobia. Get real!
Step Two: Dismiss
Denial is implicitly a dismissal of the conservative’s ability to grasp reality. Dismissiveness accelerates especially as time reveals some aspect of the truth. Then, the aggressors make a minor concession leavened by a major distraction.
The next big step in the global transgender entitlement movement came in 2018, after Republican lawmakers in North Carolina sought to preempt the momentous astroturfing by putting into law that people use the public bathrooms pertaining to their biological sex. At the time, trans activists’ response was to dismiss lawmakers as bigots by suggesting that men identifying as women have always used female bathrooms, and that the legislation, rather than being a preemptive protection of women, was indeed a civil rights abuse of men in dresses.
Without acknowledging the claims of the past, activists implicitly conceded what just a few years earlier they had explicitly denied: that preferred pronoun usage was the objective, nothing further, and that compliance under compelled speech could not possibly lead to anything more serious in the future.
Okay, yes, the rights of transgender men include the right to enter women’s restrooms, but it’s not like that takes anything away from you. They are just like women: submissive, harmless, simply minding their own business. Drag queen bowel hour is a blessing of liberty. In fact, it’s been this way forever. Why can’t you just leave trans people alone?
Step Three: Defame
Denial and dismissiveness are always paired with, if not immediately followed by, the threat of total personal, social, financial, and emotional destruction of political opposition. This was true for Peterson and it was true for the entire state of North Carolina. As for the big picture of the global transgender entitlement movement, precisely at this benchmark is where we stand today.
A few weeks ago, the American Medical Association announced that sex should be removed as a legal designation on birth certificates. This news, combined with the 117th Congress’s decision to cease use of terms “mother” and “father” in session last year, as well as the La Leche League’s normalization of the term “chestfeeding,” instigated some of the most vitriolic personal attacks on trans-exclusionary radical feminists (TERFs) since the transgender movement began.
Time has revealed once again that transgenderism as a political movement is necessarily an attack on women’s civil rights. Because everything that early opposition predicted has come true, transgender activists are particularly eager to destroy opposition, lest the record speak for itself.
Last year, JK Rowling was cancelled by her own disciples. Genevieve Gluck, who runs the podcast and blog Women’s Voices has sustained death threats, rape threats, and cyber attacks to include the ripping off of her voice to use as an overture to hypnotic sissy porn, which resulted in an algorithm that will forever link her name to that kind of pornography. Even I, a far less significant voice in the world of gender-critical writing, as well as many of my friends have sustained attempted cancellation for our positions on transgenderism. Its proponents can no longer deny that legal transgenderism will indeed annihilate political, legal, and civil designations for women, and have resorted to personal annihilation for anyone who points this fact out:
Okay, female-identifying men rape women in prison, but that’s just one news report, and what’s it to you anyway? Why do you hate trans people so much? TERFs are just white supremacists in disguise. Shut up!
Step Four: Dominate
One more move remains to be played for the transgender movement: Step Four, the final revelation of the thing they believed the whole time but told you that you were a bad person for suggesting in the first place:
Yes, some people are going to get hurt by this, but actually, it’s good.
Sound familiar? Yes, the working class is being exterminated through joblessness and overdose, but actually, it’s good. Yes, the NSA was spying on Tucker Carlson, but actually, it’s good. Yes, we are going to mandate vaccine passports, but actually, it’s good.
This week, animator Chris Chan, who “identifies” as a woman named Christine, was arrested in Virginia for raping his 80-year old mother with dementia. In this case, in which violence against a woman by a man identifying as a woman is the central problem, what happens with Chan’s defense will indicate whether or not the transgender movement, in all its implicit misogyny, has completed its legal domination of women, which was always the goal. The case will hinge on the question of whether Chan’s self-identification of being a female absolves him of charges of incestuous rape, because Virginia law does not recognize incest between mother and daughter as such. Yes, Chris Chan “had sex with her mother,” and actually, incest is good.
The stakes have never been higher. Money can be recovered, migrants can be deported, schoolrooms can be reconquered, and mask mandates can be reversed. Theoretically at least, even the intelligence community could be disbanded. Innocence, on the other hand, can never, ever be restored to victims of sexual abuse. Sexual grooming, indecent exposure, and molestation are forms of theft in which the object of theft is a non-renewable resource—and that’s only the beginning of what makes this so evil. A legal and cultural movement whose explicit purpose is to destroy all sex-based boundaries and categories implicitly intends to defang rape, incest, and pedophilia—despite tiresome yet undeniably effective refrains to the contrary.
Make no mistake about what’s coming down the pike, and do not underestimate the capacity of Big Feminism to justify extreme sexual abuse in the name of progressive politics. Domination is coming for us all unless a serious resistance movement can find a way to fight back while withstanding trademark leftist gaslighting.
None of this would happen in a properly educated country. This IS working because of the Left's successful effort to control and run "education", turning "School" at all levels into indoctrination and re-training camps. It still wouldn't work if not for the Media at all levels being complicit. The American voting public has allowed both to happen and deserve the consequences.
Leftist: There is no replacement migration. It a conspiracy theory of the far right (Just an example).
First answer from true rightwing person. You belong to the liberal left. What you really want, is to destroy western civilization and it's underpinnings. We have seen the slippery slope of leftist activsm countless times since the 1950s undermine the tenets of our civilzation again and again, and nothing indicates that your intenions are different this time. You are thus speaking in bad faith.
Leftist protests with irrelevant or untrue arguments alternatively points and sputters an epithet (Typically racist, nazi, fascist, xenophobe) or comes with an insult (Typically incel, lives in mother's basement, small dick).
Second answer from true rightwinger. I don't care what you say that you think, you might not even be aware of why you are acting as you do. Do you really think it's a coincidence that you hold every opinion that the mainstream left holds, that you have researched all these subjects and came up with an informed opinion that matches that of the mainstreamn, when you share all the establishment's views, including the ones that are wrong. What is most likely, that you think what you have been told to think or that you by pure chance, with your carefully reasearched opinions, have come to the same conlusions that the establisment holds - that are true as well as those that are false?
The left's impulse to destroy everything normal, beautiful, strong, genuinely masculine and feminine and traditional as well as every value that makes a civilzation healthy and able to survive has gone on for a century now and nothing indicates that you will compromise halfway and say stop If i would accept amnesty for illegals in excahnge for E-verify and a real wall and so on. In the 60s and 70s much of the heroes of today's left tried to make the case for pedophilia, and we can see the articles that are startling to trick out now about how pedophilia is a disease and that we must be compassionate and that not all pedophiles molests children. It sounded exactly the same with homosexual people in the 70s, the AIDS threw a spanner in your works but in the 90s you took the cause up again and now the left considers me a bigot for not thinking that gay adoption is a good thing, and if I say under my own name that I think the evidence for if homosexual adoption of children is yet to be found out whether it's good or bad and that I am tending towards the positon that it's bad for the children, you will try to have me shut up by any means, first by getting me doxxed and then on and on as is the left's standard MO these days to shut up dissidents.
L: Calls you an epithet, everytime, without fault.
Third answer from true rightwinger: I couldn't care less what you call me. I give not the slightest credence to your leftist morals and that you think you are superior to me while you demonstably destroy everything that once made this country great is an excellent reason for me notto do so. First you will deny that something even exists, as homosexual bathhouses or cruising spots, then you will say that ok, it's happening, but it doesn't have any negative effects (Whaqt does it bother you what people d oin their own bedrooms) and hence it's nothing to worry about. After that comes stage three where you say, okay, it exists and it is a problem (We know that homosexuals, who are paraphiliacs, ie drawn to strange or atypical situations objects, people, are twice as likely to molest young boys, and now we have homosexuals in the Boy Scouts and of course pederasts will try to gain access to boys there). At last you will say: Well, homophobes like you deserve it anyway and I couldn't care less, the molested boys was the price of progress and it was worth it
(Another example: Rightist: Do replacement migration exist in the west or not? Leftist: No it's just a conspiracy theory of the far right. R: But these statistics show that white people will be a minorty by 2050 if nothing drastically changes and for only 60 years ago whites made up 87 -89 percent of this countrie's population. L: Okey, it might be happening but it will only mean a more diverse access of food and restaurants. 3. But immigrants are to a large degree using finacial resources paid for by the taxpayers, they are very overrepresented in crime and they do not assimmilate anymore. L: Okay, maybe it is bad, but you deserve it, you inbred piece of white trash sitting in your mama's basement. That's payback for what you did to the Indians (Which reveals that the left of today does not at all care about economic fairness for the working class or middle class anymore, they are okay with neoliberalism that produces kilobillionaires as long as it's a degenerate, hedonistic neoliberalism that the elite makes into the hegemonic ideology- an ideology that makes sure anything the left finds to be considered normal is destroyed and as long as whites, the ultimate oppressors, are made into atomized individuals removed from all sense of their heritage and traditions and ultiamtely destroyed as a people).
Note that they will use the exact same example in europe, only then it's colonialism that is the reason why whites deserve to go from a completely heterogenous population, in for instance the UK, to a minority in a generations lifetime.
They also use they same argument in for instance Sweden who was never a colonial power, but then the crime the Swedes made was that they sold iron to Britain that was used to make shackles to transport the slaves in the north atlantic slave trade by britain and that they for about 50-100 years had a caribbean island to which 300 slaves were imported, which BTW is a far smaller number of salves imported than the number of swedish sailors taken as slaves by muslim arab pirates in the mediterranean, a complete and overwhelming majority of whom never were freed, and if so only by Swede's paying ransom from whome.
That northern europeans imported less slaves to North america than the total number of white slaves taken by arabs is never mentioned, neither that the majority of slaves was transported to the arab world as well as south america, neither that many arab countries did not remove chattel slavery as an institution unti lwell into the 20th century, for instance Saudi Arabia did it in the 60s and someother Gulf state did it in 1978, and then only under heavy pressure from the US.
Neither is it mentioned that eastern europe was for several centuries colonized by the Ottoman empire which treated it's colonial subjects far worse than did almost all of the European powers, except for Leupold Is private possession the Kongo.
Nor is it mentioned that it was whites who ended slavery at a substantial cost in white peoples blood as well as great financial cost (Except where it's still practiced today in inner Africa by blacks towards other blacks, in soverign countries after decolonization - also millions of temporary workers from for example Bangladesh are treated like serfs today in the Gulf states).
But whites deserve to be replaced in their home countries by people who are very unlike them and we have no right to demand assimilation or any gratitude or anything. Whitey should shut up and pay for his own colonization, if the western liberal elites have any say.
