The new Red Guards.

Vox succinctly describes Social Justice Warriors:

Social Justice Enforcers would be a more apt term. The SJWs are nothing less than the mutaween of the godless West, the self-appointed enforcers of the would-be globalist elite’s hellish parody of morality.

  2. These people are nuts. Some days I think we’re going to see gangs of social justice types beating up white people who wear kimonos or eat Chinese food.

  3. Interesting segment you lifted from that piece. It should be obvious how much of this is played out in men’s issues such as those written of here. The NFL and domestic violence, for example, and the sackcloth and self flagellation of Roger Goodell as he genuflects to these SJW’s. In the larger context of Vox’ piece, that media yammering about the NFL supplants ISIS and another beheading as headliner.

    As to courage, a theme mentioned in that piece, here are some examples of the SJWs corrupting influence recently in the comments made by the father of one of the injured boys from the Kroger Mob beating at a Memphis area Krogers:

    “Sauser said he feels bad for these kids [the perpetrators]. He knows they don’t have a good family life, and criminal charges for this attack wont help their future.

    “While my son was hurt he is going to come out of this. These kids are not going to come out of this,” he said.

    Consider the mayor and police chief urging city council to pass laws where the parents can be held responsible. Stupidity knows no bounds in the micromanagement of lives and ignorance of the unintended side effects. Imagine a community with those laws and then imagine the racial discord if those laws were enforced resulting in heavy parental punitive action in the black community. Profiling anyone? Then imagine the corrective. Find reasons to balance the arrest statistics to prevent allegations of profiling.

    Tune out. Prep. Both are proactive these days.

    Vox’s term is les mot juste in terms of the fervor with which the rules are enforces, and of course the religious implication will surely infuriate the Social Justice Enforcers, so that’s all good. But there is a difference – te Mutaween at least in theory are enforcing permanent law, the law of Sharia derived from the Koran. Just the opposite is true of the SJE’s.

    Becaue what they enforce is, pace George Orwell, constantly in flux; Eastasia has always been at war with Oceana. In modern terms, liberation has always included the “right” of men to wear a dress, call themselves women and insist on their female rights under AA. Never mind that just a few years ago this was laughable, you miserable, hate-filled reactionary!

    One wonders if the constantly mutating definition of Social Justice is not a feature, because it enables te Social Justice Enforcers a means to compete with each other – for one to be more Socially Just than oters, and thus to have higer ranking within the SJE’s. Certainly this sort of thing can be seen reading cerefully about 1930’s USSR purges, or the Cultural Revolution in 1960’s – 1970’s Maoist China.

    To have the rules constantly in flux is of advantage for those who make and enforce the rulse.
    For everyone else it is, of course, a burden.

    Of course, there’s zero consistency with the new “war on domestic violence.” Hope Solo assaulted her sister and nephew awhile back, causing visible injuries (stay classy, Hope!). She hasn’t missed a single soccer game, though her case is finally getting a little more attention.

    In the mixed martial arts world, the UFC cut one alleged “woman beater” and suspended another. However, one of their ring girls was arrested on domestic violence charges a few years ago, and the UFC said they “stood behind 100%” or something like that.

    Exactly. I worked with a woman who grew up in the Cultural Revolution. They lived in terror of being accused of not being sufficiently enthusiastic about the latest party line. Having a copy of Mao’s little red book prominently displayed in any photographs taken (including wedding photos, portraits, etc) was a minimum token gesture, but not enough to ensure the forces of chaos wouldn’t single you out.

    A perfect example comes today:
    “It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures,” Union and her new husband, Dwyane Wade, said in a statement. “I can’t help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide. For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes — We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”

    How leaked nudes amounts to “atrocities” against children, and racism is beyond me. I guess I didn’t go to the right college to understand the new morality.

  8. AR – One wonders if the constantly mutating definition of Social Justice is not a feature, because it enables the Social Justice Enforcers a means to compete with each other – for one to be more Socially Just than others, and thus to have higher ranking within the SJE’s.

    As I wrote elsewhere…. “It’s getting harder and harder out there for a pseudointellectual pimp. The race to set oneself apart as “enlightened” by discovering deeper and deeper levels of fauxlosophy is barreling toward the horizon at full speed and shows no signs of a finish line.”

    It just ends up with one sainted group attacking another, each trying to prove that the other is no longer a victim, but now an aggressor. If Dalrock will pardon the self-pimpage, here’s an example of what my wife called a “minority victim war” – http://nightskyradio.com/2014/07/14/leftist-turn-at-albuquerque/

    When in a hole (i.e. Union of whom I had never previously heard) one should stop digging.

    Goes back before that. Read about the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. The first real leftist revolution. Exact same thing.

    Remember, this stuff is the spawn of Satan, who is more than happy to see people beheaded, purged, starved, exiled, re-educated, etc. He has no cause except his own glorification, and the destruction of man whom God loves. So yes, the definition is intentionally a moving target. It has no basis except to find a way to kill as many people as possible.

    I worked with a woman who grew up in the Cultural Revolution. They lived in terror of being accused of not being sufficiently enthusiastic about the latest party line.

    NY Times reporter Fox Butterfield wrote a book back in the 80’s about the Cultural Revolution called China: Adrift in the bitter sea that I wound up reading a while later. It has been some years since I read it, but one thing I took away from it was how much time and energy the average, ordinary person had to put into just going along with the program. Whether keeping track of all the menstrual cycles in the household in order to dutifullly report them to the block captain on the required day, or spending night after night in some mandatory self-criticism session after a long day’s work, the system was a huge burden on ordinary life. And people just got tired of it. After being whipped around mulitiple times by the latest Three Importent Things or FIve Mandatory Thoughts, people began to approach all this stuff in a purely rote, droning manner. That likely is why eventually the Cultural Revolution came undone, it toppled of its own weight on society.

    The Social Justice Bullies (yes. That is what they are. You read it here first. Feel free…) in their unending, permanently stoked outrage that is turned up to 11 at all times almost certainly do not realize how much resentment and just plain tiredness, of the “this? AGAIN?” variety they are sowing among the rest of us. And so, when real pushback begins, it will come as a total shock to them.

    Perfect term, as they are in fact bullies. Trying to comply will only make them meaner. You are also spot on about the tiredness. The latest round with the NFL will only hasten that.

    There needs to be a set of questions one can pose to people to determine whether (and how far) they are immersed in blue pill PC beliefs.

    Such as: what do the initials MGTOW stand for?

  14. Lovekraft says:

    tfh: I take exception to the use of the word ‘Warriors’

    I agree, however, using the word ‘warrior’ serves two purposes: 1. it mocks these cheeto-chewing/latte gulping specks and 2. states the severity of their power/potential for harm.

    This post brings up my other pet peeve with the American Church: it will not fight evil. The attitude I tend to get is that this world isn’t our world so of course there’s going to be bad stuff. Just wait it out until God takes us home.

    Which defeats any possible reason God might have for putting us here in the first place, not to mention Jesus’ strong example of not waiting quietly to die on the Cross.

    This is the central reason why men aren’t welcome in church and/or see no reason in attending: The Church has retired from the public sphere. It does well in the private sphere–raise families, help the elderly and sick–but acting as the public conscience? Supporting leaders who do good and calling out leaders who do evil? Confronting unjust laws and propaganda masquerading as journalism? Even basic apologetics? Most churches have trouble seeing the worlds of business and politics, or just public morality, as anything they should care about. We Christians have a monopoly on truth but our leaders see no reason to uphold it outside church walls.

    Men are creatures of the public sphere. Women are creatures of the private sphere. It’s no coincidence that the rise of feminism parallels the Church’s retreat from reality.

  17. greyghost says:

    You guys are not kidding about what is going on in the NFL. It all started with that pink shit for breast cancer . And now they smell blood.

  18. DrTorch says:

    Agree with you fully Gunner Q. That’s a huge problem.

  19. Anonymous Reader says:

    greyghost, any area of life that is not dominated by the Female Imperative is a threat.
    Hence the attack on the NFL as well as on the computer gaming world. At leaste the
    gamers are pusing back. The NFL will continue to cave in, possibly until the viewership
    drops. And I agree, it was pink month that was the thin edge of the wedge.
    The Social Justice Bullies or maybe Social Justice Commissars would fit better in this case,
    already have control of network TV shows (which might explain why viewership is
    declining) but not total control of sporting events. It’s like the opening of that 60’s
    science fiction show, “We will control all that you see and hear….”.

    “The Church has retired from the public sphere. It does well in the private sphere”

    No, no we have not done well there.

    That is the root of the evil.

    ——————————————
    Let’s all spread the meme what say?

    From now on I will refer to them in speech and writing as SJE’s.

    Recently I went to a 50th birthday party held for one of my wife’s lesbian friends. If decay in the West of which Solzhenitsyn speaks were crystallized, it was there.
    I was witness to a bunch of buzz-cut angry middle aged women, mostly frumpily dressed and overweight. Out of a crowd of about 100, there may have been ten men (if lucky). There would have been even fewer children, maybe six.
    The birthday speeches were littered with paroxysms of self congratulation, world travel and the disparagement of Christianity, combined with the solemn vow to continue fighting for gay marriage “because it is an injustice”, coupled with an equally solemn vow not to get married to her significant other.

    These are our “Social Justice Enforcers”: They will angrily demand that society changes, yet they refuse to live with the consequences of those changes.

    Many would call this Hamsterism. I call it gross hypocrisy. I told my wife to politely demur my attendance for any such future events.

  23. Escoffier says:

    Another great account of the CR is Life and Death in Shanghai by Nan Cheng (sp?). Firsthand account.

  24. Not the “Red Guard”, sir, but the “Pink Guard”.

  25. Anonymous Reader says:

    “Social Justice Enforcers” might give too much credit. Perhaps “Social Justice Commissars” for that special Stalin-era touch, or if there is a Chinese word from the era of the Cultural Revolution that renders into english as easily as LaoGai does for Gulag.

    Or you can try my new fave: “Social Justice Bullies”, because the perpetually offended fancy themselves as perpetual victims, so to point out the fact that they are bullies surely will crank them right up.

  26. Escoffier says:

    AR: or my personal favorite, “Block Captain.”

  27. Anonymous Reader says:

    “Block Captain” is good, I recall it from the Fox Butterfield book on the Maoist Cultural Revolution.
    So, hmm, “Social Justice Block Captain” – too wordy? Too obscure? It does have a certain playground-monitor-bully tone in the modern day.

  28. John Nesteutes says:

    @Gunner Q

    We fight evil all the day long, through preaching the gospel and teaching righteousness.

    In exchange, the North American church keeps telling people we are trapped in “legalism”.

    Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”

    And thank goodness for that.

    For what it’s worth… in my faith tradition we have spoken out against spectating organised sports since such nonsense started in the 19th century. Masculine men would do well to quit watching other men play sports, and to care little about such silliness.

  29. desiderian says:

    Escoffier,

    “AR: or my personal favorite, ‘Block Captain.'”

    “Party minder” was my usual term for them at the pre-WP Volokh blog.

    I think you’re on to something there. It’s interesting how my fervor for spectator sports has naturally waned with maturity…
