4chan–particularly, Anonymous and /b/. I considered it emblematic of the degenerate madness of millennials–a sewer of grotesquerie, perversion, and self-infatuation.
Today? Today my sentiments toward 4chan have swung 180°–I now view it
not as a mere cesspit of degeneracy (which it most certainly is), but
as the crucible that has forged tomorrow’s warriors for Western Civilization.
(Note I use the past perfect “has forged” above, as I believe 4chan is not what it used to be. More on that later.)
As Nietzsche had observed, “But it is the same with man as with the
tree. The more he seeks to rise into the height and light, the more
vigorously do his roots struggle earthward, downward, into the dark, the
deep–into evil.” While our universities coddle and bend over backwards
to accommodate ever-more hysterical, triggered-happy, overgrown infants
who literally cry and retreat to their “safe spaces” when exposed to
innocuous words (such as “Trump 2016”) or images (such as the
Confederate flag) that they have been trained to view as “offensive”,
4chan provided an outlet for the men amongst the boys to congregate and
hash it out, no holds barred. Put another way: Our universities are
little more than really, really expensive ball pits for overgrown
children, whereas 4chan was Fight Club for men sick of our degenerate,
emasculating, pathetic, weak, groveling, suicidal culture. (Which is why
many of you probably never heard of it, at least not when it first
started out years ago. For the first rule of /b/ [the heart of 4chan]
was, like Fight Club, do not talk about it.)
From that fiery inferno of anonymous online debate, replete with the
most offensive images you could imagine, arose a subset of millennials
incapable of being offended, of imperturbable sangfroid, who are
insanely quick with rapier retorts both online and IRL, and whose
capacity for destruction of SJWs and the sick “culture” they create is
like nothing we “oldfags” can imagine–an indomitable amalgam of
incredible talent, high IQ, broad erudition, and hilarious, withering
And, like Donald Trump, the more you attack them, the stronger they get.
In fact, Donald Trump’s popular support is, in my estimation, largely
driven by these young White Warriors. All those hilarious Trump memes
you see on Facebook and such? They’re coming from /pol/, 4chan’s politically incorrect
board. (In fact, pretty much all memes–at least, all the good
ones–you’ve seen floating around the internet for the past decade can be
attributed to 4chan users.)
But 4chan is, as alluded to above, not what it once was. Amongst
other key changes, its founder–a geeky kid named Christopher Poole
(known more affectionately by his 4chan handle, “moot”)–has walked away
from his muse and sold his soul to the antithesis of 4chan: Google. (Not
that I blame him–Google no doubt offered him a pretty penny to join
their evil ranks, and the poor kid never made a dime off 4chan and I’m
sure his mother was on him to get a real job and move out of her tiny
But I don’t believe that matters: Anon has grown up, and, like Poole, has left the 4chan nest and started their own adventures.
And they’re making their mark.
The Trump phenomenon is only the tip of the iceberg. What is
happening is that these graduates of anything-goes slug-fests are
bringing their tactics to bear upon the sociopolitical milieu as we
They are no longer “anon”; they are now “shitlords” (a term of
endearment co-opted from feminazis’ handbook of epithets against men),
and they are busting down one “safe space” after another and shining the
light on these SJW cretins so all the world can see what a bunch of
ridiculous, craven paper tigers they really are.
They are destroying Orwellian political correctness. They are hacking university printers and remotely printing off, en masse,
the most “triggering” material they can produce. They are
“troll-storming” cucked-out, neocon rags like National Review Online. In
short, they are fighting back. Lord almighty–someone’s actually fighting back!
They are, in a way, Vikings loosed upon an effeminate populace…and it is a glorious thing to behold.
While our debt-saddled, highly indoctrinated, precious little
snowflakes pride themselves on their rootlessness, blowing in whichever
direction TPTB decide to blow them, 4chan’s best and brightest stand
tall, strong, and unyielding. They shall not be bowed.
In sum: Where once I saw 4chan as the death knell of Western
Civilization, now I believe that it may prove to have been the modern
agora in which Western Civilization found the will to rebirth itself,
The fight is not over, my friends. In fact, I believe it’s just getting started.
