Zachary agreed: “People like the Proud Boys have their own social clubs, and that’s black magic. Instead of running away from that, we need to find better ways of organizing ourselves.

    I suggest you go read the entire article if you need a laugh. It is a masterclass in clichés, regurgitated leftist talking points and unsupported lies. They even shoehorn in President Trump and Gavin McInnes FFS. As for the satanists, they meet in a lot of basements, probably their parents’, they’re in a rock band and dress in black. Ooohhh, and they even bought a skull! Arrested adolescents trying their best to shock and piss off their parents. The meme “It’s not a phase Mom!” comes to mind.

    • Bingo.

      In my experience, people who adopt “edgy” ideologies like satanism, militant atheism or any political totalitarianism (see also: communism, nazism) and do so with gusto are more often than not doing it as a form of childish rebellion in an effort to spite their families.

      Some will even flat-out admit it.

  • Oh, please.

    Is anyone else tired of these poseurs and their pretentious twaddle?

      The trouble is that when something becomes mainstream, embracing it no longer is “fighting the man”. In this case, it is becoming “the man”.

      Nowadays, being a Puritan is looking more and more like “fighting the man”…
