In the end for Chester: When co-option of opposition & protest forces you to imagine different text

The End, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington

When false opposition forces you to imagine lyrics/text different than theirs and supply protest lyrics authentic to your interests:

Back in the days before Internet, decades before in fact, we young folks didn’t have much outlet for protest via the media - TV, movies, newspapers and magazines, book publishing (((all controlled))). Music, concerts and festivals were ostensible outlets of protest expression - and even they were so (((controlled))) by pervasive liberalism that I had to change lyrics in my head to de-liberalize them and make them properly aligned to my grievances. Neil Young’s “Alabama” is a classic example of a song that had righteous passion totally misdirected into liberalism. Lynard Skynard noticed it in their song “Sweet Home Alabama”, citing Young and his song “Alabama” directly for criticism. But it wasn’t only they who objected and I could not relate to their southern patriotism either. No, I had my own protest lyrics in mind - lyrics, wouldn’t you know, that I can’t even spell out today, this protest remains so forbidden by the powers-that-be and their do-gooders mulatto supremacist gate keepers: it goes to show HOW FAR we have NOT come in some ways - ridiculously, you can’t even say the N word:

“Alabama”, Neil Young - Lyrics

Oh Alabama N-lover
Banjos playing
through the broken glass
Windows down in Alabama.
See the old folks
tied in white ropes
Hear the banjo.
Don’t it take you down home?


Alabama N-lover, you got
the weight on your shoulders
That’s breaking your back.
Your Cadillac
has got a wheel in the ditch
And a wheel on the track

Oh Alabama N-lover.
Can I see you
and shake your hand.
Make friends down in Alabama.
I’m from a new land
I come to you
and see all this ruin
What are you doing Alabama N-lover?
You got the rest of the union
to help you along
What’s going wrong?

Neil did a bit better with the lyrics to “Southern Man”, particularly in the last stanza, although I don’t think Neil was looking at it from the same angle that I have… that’s my imagination supplying the protest angle once again.

Southern Man, Neil Young – Lyrics
Southern man
Better keep your head
Don’t forget
What your good book said
Southern change
Gonna come at last
Now your crosses
Are burning fast
Southern man

I saw cotton
And I saw black
Tall white mansions
And little shacks.
Southern man
When will you
Pay them back?
I heard screamin’
And bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

Southern man
Better keep your head
Don’t forget
What your good book said
Southern change
Gonna come at last
Now your crosses
Are burning fast
Southern man

Lily Belle,
Your hair is golden brown
I’ve seen your black man
Comin’ round
Swear by God
I’m gonna cut him down!

I heard screamin’
And bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?

Neil Young’s politics are well off the mark; no need to belabor that, but I’d like to caution that anybody trafficking in the emotion of sadness as much as Neil Young has is promoting a neutering kind of propaganda in that very sadness - it’s better to veer in the direction of anger.

Now, a primary outlet for rebellion against political tyranny has been largely co-opted again, this time it is the (((alternative-k*ke er, alternative-right))) that’s doing much of the co-opting.

And unfortunately, they are putting their (((brand))) on to some intelligent text, you might say, protest lyrics text.

I feel the same yearning as co-opted passions and thoughtful consideration could be deployed for our authentic protest, and not for the (((alternative-k*ke))), when I read Melissa Meszaros’ article about the suicide of Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington.

The strikeouts of “alt-rights” and “the left” in one place are strictly my wish and of course not how Melissa wrote the article - as she did, in order to brand it for the (((Alt-Right))). In one place I have to comment where, typical of right wing misguidance, the negative significance and anti stance she registers for the homosexual issue is disproportionate. Everything else remains as she has written it.

Alt-Right, “What The Alt-Right Can Learn From The Death Of Chester Bennington, 24 July 2017:

Linkin Park touched the millennial generation’s frustrations with modern society like no other band could. For this reason, it’s worth spending a few moments looking into the life of frontman Chester Bennington and seeing what we can learn after his suicide.

Sexually molested from the age of seven, divorced parents, a steady cocktail of drugs from the age of eleven, with alcoholism and depression entering later on — these are the things that framed the childhood of Linkin Park’s frontman Chester Bennington.

Unable to overcome his traumas and subsequent addictions, he chose to use them as a painful source of inspiration in his lyrics. His suicide is unfortunate, especially for his children and wife, and whether we listened personally to the band or not as we were growing up, Linkin Park held a central position representing the millennial generation’s frustrations with life and all the associated mental effects relating to the increase of broken homes and fragmenting communities. The band spoke of problems most of us experienced as teenagers, back when we were confused and distrustful of the direction our supposedly fantastic and free society was heading. Now, as adults in the Alt-Right, with infinitely more resources and knowledge at our fingertips, we are dedicated to overcoming and fixing these issues within ourselves and our societies. But still, for many of us, Linkin Park was the herald awakening millions of teens to the realization that the world is messed-up and it was time to prepare for a long battle. For this reason, I believe it’s worth spending a few moments looking into Bennington’s life of inescapable addiction and seeing what we in the Alt-Right can learn from it.

For me, I remember Linkin Park being the most popular band in my freshman year of high school in Central New Jersey. It was the last year I’d spend in the United States before moving to Hungary with my parents. My friends would carry around the Hybrid Theory CD and hold it reverently during recess while talking about the lyrics. We’d sit with crossed-legs in a circle in the shady corner of a grassy lot while spawns of diversity hollered and beat each other on the nearby basketball courts.

I only got into the band later, for a few months when my father was in the hospital in Hungary, dying from terminal lung cancer. The music is not positive and it does not remind me of a good place. Rather, I envision a constant delirious struggle with myself, getting caught in a loop over thinking various problems and feeling uncertain of ever being able to overcome the odds and live in peace. These are the very thought processes Chester Bennington described himself dealing with, in an interview with 102.7 KIISFM radio in February of this year. After a while, I realized the music was keeping me from moving past my own issues, so I grew out of it.

When it comes to Bennington himself, there are three things worth highlighting. First, there is the molestation by an older male friend. In his own words, Bennington described:

“It escalated from a touchy, curious, ‘what does this thing do’ into full-on, crazy violations. I was getting beaten up and being forced to do things I didn’t want to do. It destroyed my self-confidence. I didn’t want people to think I was gay or that I was lying. It was a horrible experience.”

It seems so tiring, but still necessary to reiterate the recurring theme we see with perverted males sexually exploiting boys and young men and the mental issues that result from the experiences. From Korn frontman Jonathan Davis’s well-known experience with sexual abuse, to more recently Milo describing his own struggle with two men molesting him as a teenager, there is a burgeoning and complicated problem here, and whatever the reasons for the failures of parents to protect and guide their children.

I do have to comment on a few lines here. Not being gay myself, I am not best positioned to comment and I almost overlooked this. But I do think that Melissa is over the top here - “eradicate” ....who? My understanding is that a certain percentage of the population will be gay; child molesters, ok that’s another matter, but are gays necessarily child molesters?

...sexual deviants are not being eradicated as they should, but instead the increasingly degenerate and shrill LGBT lobby is aiding them in campaigns that primarily target children, like Drag Queen Story Hour, just to name one off the top of my head.

Male child sexual abuse is such a pervasive issue that even CNN picked up on it, in their own special, fake newsy kind of way. They acknowledged the fact, yet set their sights on blaming “gender roles” and claiming the solution lies in emotionally supporting male sexual abuse victims in the manner of women. Nice try from CNN, though. Just trying to emasculate men even further.

I have found that queers do not bother me. A few times in my life they made overtures and I just told them I wasn’t interested and that was the end of that. They go to their clubs, I don’t.

Child molestation is another matter, gay or hetero.

The second issue worth bringing up is the drug addiction and alcoholism. According to NME:

His childhood was troubled – suffering sexual abuse from an older male friend from the age of seven until he was 13, Chester turned to drugs including opium, amphetamine and cocaine in the wake of the divorce, and was physically bullied at school.

This is how Bennington described his early teen years:

“I was on 11 hits of acid a day. I dropped so much acid I’m surprised I can still speak! I’d smoke a bunch of crack, do a bit of meth and just sit there and freak out. Then I’d smoke opium to come down. I weighed 110 pounds. My mom said I looked like I stepped out of Auschwitz. So I used pot to get off drugs. Every time I’d get a craving, I’d smoke my pot.”

Addiction is something we all have to face at one time or another, and it’s nothing new to us in the Alt-Right. Whether it’s overreacting, video games, drugs, alcohol, sex — the actual thing we are (or were) addicted to doesn’t matter. Nor does the underlying cause. Perhaps we were stressed by the imagined magnitude of our responsibilities so we developed an addiction to numb ourselves, perhaps we were blinded by pride and lust, perhaps we were just lonely, hurt someone and have trouble getting over the guilt. In worst cases, maybe we were abused and exploited by adults we thought we could trust.

Whatever the details, there is a lesson to be gained from all struggles. They leave a mark on us and give a great depth to our lives, and this depth is neither good nor bad. It just is. Being red-pilled is certainly one such mark.

I don’t wish to preach here about overcoming addiction because it’s a topic that can be discussed endlessly and only ever offers mixed results. If someone is ready to get over an addiction, they will, and they’ll do it in a way that suits them. Wherever we stand in our personal journeys, take solace in the knowledge that one of the key factors that differentiates the Alt-Right from other political and cultural movements, especially the eternally victimized liberals, is our dedication to self-betterment and our ability to critically recognize our own faults and learn from them. Our primary goal is to make a better world for ourselves and others. We know from where true contentment springs, and that giving up is not an option. Especially if we have children. Which brings me to my third and final point.

Chester Bennington had six children. If you have children, whatever old injustices and sufferings your mind still circles around become irrelevant, and your focus must be to ensure that your children live a protected life with proper parental guidance. You don’t get to kill yourself over feelings, no matter how painful those feelings may be. Doing otherwise is only perpetuating that pain into the next, innocent generation and opening them up to the same behaviors and thinking patterns that drove you to your grave.

This is also a challenge our generation faces. We’ve grown up exposed to so much misinformation and deliberately harmful depictions of “modern life” in the media and in our immediate surroundings that we’ve nearly forgotten how to treat each other and ourselves properly. How to be strong gentlemen and ladies who are not tossed into suicidal spasms of regret and sorrow over past mistakes and grudges.

Still, even if our minds are in the right place, it will require some effort to unlearn and suffocate all those poor behaviors and urges right where they stand. The degeneracy has to end with us. We have to break off that cycle of abuse, addiction, leftist [change to liberal/and YKW] social conditioning, for good, or we risk affecting future generations. This is the essence of our cause, and what we must represent.

Are we up for the journey? Don’t despair, maybe Linkin Park can provide some inspiration:

Interesting observations upon Chester Bennigton’s suicide. Drug and alcohol abuse alone as it exacerbates depression and tendency to suicide does not explain the dramatic rise in middle aged White male fatality. Heart disease: Psychological and emotional stress plays a massive role in producing heart disease. People who have been clinically depressed even once are twice as likely to suffer a heart attack as long as ten full years after the original episode. A 2014 study found that the very psychological experience of negative emotion contributes directly to creating the type of inflammation that causes heart disease. In fact, subjective psycho-social factors probably do more to explain death from heart disease than physical life factors do.

Alt-Right, “Our Revolution Is Baked In The Cake”, 17 Aug 2017:

Too many White men with nothing to lose.

In all honesty, what were they thinking?

The elites, the boomers, the feminists, the Jews…they all colossally fucked up. What did they think would happen when they disenfranchised an entire legion of young White men? Did they think it would end well for them?

If there was one subsection of society that I would go out of my way not to piss off, it would be young White men. I would go out of my way to make sure that White men were comfortably ensconced in modern society to the point where none of them would have even the slightest inclination to lift a finger in rebellion to the status quo.

The old leftists had a saying, “nothing curbs revolutionary vigor like submersion into the bourgeoisie.”

That’s a fancy way of saying “give an intelligent and capable man a wife, a house, a car and a job and he will forget all about revolution.”

And it’s true, the young man will become comfortable and he will suddenly have a stake in the system.

But they never offered us that chance. No, they opted to replace us instead.

Of course, they took precautions. They tried to castrate us K-12 by putting us on drugs, forcing us through Cultural Marxist program and trying to demoralize us. They used the media and entertainment to instill self-loathing in us. They peddled porn, degeneracy, and nihilism to try and sedate us. It worked for awhile. But we started to wake up.

If you are reading this now, you are proof that they failed.

It hurt at first, to see the truth of our complete and utter disenfranchisement laid bare before our eyes. But in time, we got acclimated to our new reality and started thinking.

Why should we listen to what all the authority structures say? What have they ever done for us?

Did the current system give us a decent career, a meaningful place in society, a loving wife or a greater reason to serve for its continuation?

The answer is a resounding, “no”.

People say that conditions have to get much worse for a revolution or any meaningful change to occur. These people are misguided in their analysis. Some people think that revolutions occur when things are bad and poverty is grinding. There’s some truth to that theory, I suppose. But if you look closely, you’ll notice that revolutions are most likely to occur when two conditions are met:

Conditions were improving, but suddenly leveled off and people’s expectations were dashed about a bright, promising future.

A class of people feels disenfranchised, with no way to climb up or change the status quo within the system.

Lads, when I look at the Alt-Right now, I see a movement that has the potential to lop off the head of the establishment and replace it with something much better.

I see some of the smartest, most energized and selfless people- the best that White civilization has to offer- within our ranks.

If I were a betting man, I never bet against us. Anti-Whites and cucks though like to screech about how our ideas belong in the dustbin of history, how we’re losers and destined to fade into obscurity…

Funny that. Projection is a hell of a drug.

They may want to commit suicide, but that’s on them, not us. Our civilization won’t serve as the millstone around their necks. We are in fact the descendants of winners. All those wars that the cucks like to cite as proof that our ideas are evil were won by White men. In that sense, they were simply civil wars between different tribes of Whites.

And that’s why it will be our side that will win the upcoming civil war. Ethnic pride will always defeat ethno-masochism. They have no chance.

They will not replace us.
