Patronage is at the base of all culture, in all forms. There is no aspect of culture which escapes the financial, structural, and material basis which makes that culture possible. This patronage can either be a force for the creation of something useful, interesting, beautiful, meaningful or it can be a force for unmitigated awfulness. The patronage which has been thrown at the right wing for the past decade or two has fallen solidly in the second category and deserves all the condemnation that can be directed at it. It is in no way a force for good at all. It has been a relentless avalanche of degradation of everyone forced to witness it.

As of the time of writing, the depraved and disgusting awfulness of Jack Murphy has been revealed for all to see, and it is something which I have pointed at in the previous year. The full details of how vile this man is can be found with ease, so I won’t go into any details here, suffice to say that the fact that this man has not retired from the public sphere and found the nearest religious establishment (Church, Mosque, Buddhist temple, Synagogue - anywhere, just pick anywhere and go) and begged for some form of forgiveness is symptomatic of how deeply disgusting and rotten American political culture has become.



If you don’t believe me, consider the characters involved in the alt right in the past decade, and consider what has since come to light to see that Murphy is not an aberration.

First we have Cernovich, a man that has admitted, in writing, to having engaged in sexual acts with a transvestite. The details are absolutely vile. Here is a section for reference, and I apologise in advance for subjecting the reader to this:

Quote
“One of her friends I’ve never met was there, like 5’8, Chinese, fucking hot (looked like some kpop singer). The girl I knew introduced us, and we hit it off immediately, I kept drinking, I think I prolly popped another Oxy, I was pretty faded.
[...]
“I remember her saying like twice “did you know I’m a man” she was hammered too, and I thought it was a joke and would respond with something like “fuck you” and she’d laugh.
[...]
We kept going at it, and one thing I remember is her pushing her shriveled little prick into my face when she was deepthroating me, in the 69 position. I kept trying to move away from it, but I eventually just gave in and let it penetrate my mouth. I remember tears coming down my face a little when I vaguely realized what I was doing, it had this weird chemically, salty taste.

He has apparently, since the first posting, made numerous claims that the post was not about him, but a reader submission, but that is absolute nonsense that I'm sure the reader won't believe. This is compounded by his seeming obsession with transvestites as demonstrated by numerous twitter post he has made referring them, including this one:



Then we have Milo, whose repentance for his previous actions at least deserve some recognition, but whose actions have clearly been despicable. Just a cursory review of his Wikipedia entry has enough revelations to turn the average person’s stomach.

Quote
“Yiannopoulos stated that sexual relationships between 13-year-old boys and adult men and women can "happen perfectly consensually", because some 13-year-olds are, in his view, sexually and emotionally mature enough to consent to sex with adults”
[...]
“Yiannopoulos was later criticised for attending Hollywood "boat parties" and "house parties" in which boys he described as "very young – very young" were sexually abused, but failing to report the abusers to the authorities or to identify them during an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience.”
[...]
an additional video emerged in which he said on a 2015 episode of Gavin McInnes's show that child sexual abuse is "really not that big a deal.

I am sure there is an absurd amount more, but I do not wish to keep digging. The details of how Milo was able to travel around the world to “stir” up trouble is exhaustively detailed in the emails with Bannon and Moldbug/ Yarvin which were exposed in 2017. (https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/josephbernstein/heres-how-breitbart-and-milo-smuggled-white-nationalism)

Finally, for the purposes of this list, and the readers sanity when it comes to sexual perversion, Gavin McInnes, an individual who reportedly, like Murphy, inserted a sex toy into his anus on camera.



That’s four people from the same group that have publicly flaunted their perversions in the most obscene and public ways. Now you have to ask yourself, if this is the type of information which is being made readily available by these people, what levels of depravity are being plumbed that are not reaching the light of day? And these are the people that certain patronage networks are forwarding as exemplars -as leaders of the right wing.

On top of all of this, we have had the revelation that one of Jack Murphy’s and Bronze Age Pervert’s disciples by the twitter handle of Roman McClay decided to live in a container house in the mountain and then shoot a number of people he held a grudge against. It is very, very clear from his twitter feed that Frog/ BAP twitter’s “burn the cities” schtick was highly influential on him and his actions. He draws direct comparisons between his work (which details violence) and BAP’s. Now this individual, BAP, is part of the very same patronage network as Cernovich, Murphy and co, and he, along with other frogtwitter members, has been on their podcast and received effusive praise from them. He has also advocated for right wing porn if memory serves me.

The question I would like to raise at this point is why we have gotten to the point where right wing political thought consists of pornographers, cuckolds, (almost certainly) pedophiles, transvestite chasers, mass shooters… the lists of obscene vices is almost innumerable at this point - and they show it to you, they revel in it.  The answer I would provide is that you have to follow the money.

The right wing ecosystem which has been financed by a specific group of conservative financial backers in their interminable and vile culture wars has many more Jack Murphy grade ghouls, and it's plainly obvious that these people should not be allowed anywhere near the public sphere, but they have been enabled by an infrastructure that exists behind them. We are far from the time of patronage gifting us great works of art, and instead it now gifts us the perverts, degenerates, idiots, and grifters.

As far as I can tell, from the snippets of information I have seen, the logic behind this patronage network is firstly that the Overton Window is in need of expanding, so they fund all forms of deranged individuals pushing against it. For the reader unaware of the concept, the Overton Window is the realm of acceptable discourse at the present time, which is supposedly constantly moving leftward at all times. The logic behind this strategy is disastrous and utterly destructive. There are so many directions from which this strategy needs to be unpicked that it could take years to do so, Here are some off the top of my head for example:

1. It assumes culture is individualistic and derives from the individual
2. It assumes that simply granting people more license is a good thing
3. It assumes that riling up opposition to the left wing is a desirable thing
4. It promotes moral degenerates which drowns out none moral degenerates
5. It is incredibly destructive to the morals of the population at large

I’m sure there are 100s more criticisms I could make, but that will be sufficient for now.

Another part of the logic behind this patronage network seems to be to provide funding in much the same way as a venture capital firm would to potential investments. The idea, in the words of Michael Anton, would be to try and find cultural “unicorns”. This overlaps a lot with the logic of pushing on the Overton Window, and is just as ridiculous for many of the same reasons. Both justifications demonstrate a jaw-dropping level of negligence as to the impact of the patronage being provided.

Blindly providing funding for deranged individuals that have achieved some notoriety or attention in the hopes that you can hitch your wagon to something that will reach the general public’s attention is an act of cultural pollution. It is ignoring, staunchly ignoring, the fact that this degenerate would not be able to reach this level of attention without the funding provided by the patron, funding which makes them complicit in the actions of the receiver of funds.

Another result of this patronage is that those who should be directing criticism against this filth are quiet. They very are silent in fact, and an excellent example of this is provided by Patrick Deneen, Sohrab Ahmari, and Adrian Vermeule. Back in October of last year, one of their compatriots dared to criticize Jack Murphy for his awfulness. They, by all accounts, blacklisted their compatriot. Why? Very obviously they are, or are trying to, obtain funding from Peter Thiel and the Hungarians and by criticizing Jack Murphy, who seems close to both funding sources, they would be unlikely to obtain this funding.



Here is Jack Murphy with Jeff Giesea who is the point man for Thiel funding.



And here is Jack Murphy with Dave Reaboi (maybe a Romanian Jew who can speak Hungarian) who looks like he is the point man for Hungarian money in the USA, or at least has the contacts for it, as far as I can figure.



So here is a very practical example of Murphy’s filth and vileness and the patronage supporting it influencing the actions of people who should be condemning it as much as possible. These people have not only held their tongues, but policed their own supposed friends for money. This is a devils bargain and in a devils bargain you don’t win, the devil does. But I’m sure they are rationalizing it right now on the ground that they will do good with the money - no you wont.

Now, there are a number of various motives you could apply to the patrons for these actions (supporting filth.) If one were very cynical, you could ascribe their actions to a form of rent seeking. These patrons are trying to leverage influence to either get their own people into the State machinery so as to be able to influence where its vast wealth is directed. There is a strong case to be made for this interpretation (just consider Palantir and its fortunes under Trump.)

Another motive could be ideological. These people could very simply believe that forcing the Overton Window open is a moral imperative because that’s how libertarians and liberals in general think- and it is the general logic of Silicon Valley in particular. I’m sure the reader can think of others motives, and it may be the case that it is a mixture of all, or some together.

Whatever the motives, I do not think it is something that should continue. I do not wish to live in a world in which Jack Murphy or any of the plethora of right wing degenerates is visible at all. But this is a world that is being made by the right wing patrons. These right wing leaders should be deplatformed permanently, forever, gone. The same goes for the hordes of right wing grifters “owning the libs” such as Shapiro.



All of the major political commentators, and a great deal of the minor ones, are funded like this. Not just Shapiro.

But we are going to be stuck with these people indefinitely, just as we are stuck with porn and social media and all the other detritus of the Internet because of “freedom” AKA the out-of-control centralised liberal power structure.

Good post, but this guy should show the patronage happening more explicitly. That would really BTFO a lot of the followers of those types.

+1, not really seeing a lot of evidence here of the patronage except maybe that one buzzfeed link. The post is pretty entertaining though.
