->Game consoles were so tainted in the eyes of the fickle public, that when Nintendo called their machine an '[[{{NES}} entertainment system]]' rather than a game console, it sold fucking gangbusters. For you see, the public are fickle but not particularly smart.

->It's tough to classify Alternative Right's ideology as either left or right, when really the ideas belong in some sort of padded room... they’re going to be white nationalists, but, by God, they’re going to be a little fancy about it.

->>What person would proclaim themselves in favor of "force and fraud"? One of the little tricks Libertarians use in debate is to confuse the ordinary sense of these words with the meaning as "terms of art" in Libertarian axioms. They try to set up a situation where if you say you're against "force and fraud", then obviously you must agree with Libertarian ideology, since those are the definitions.

->A guy who likes to [[GreedyJew blame everything on the Jews]]. He's a former Klansman who claims that he left his racist days behind long ago, but that's bullshit. He uses the word "Zionist" more than he uses the word 'the.' It's essentially his subtle way of saying Kike.

->The United States, to an unusual extent, is [[PrivatelyOwnedSociety a business-run society]], more so than others. The business classes are very class-conscious...We don’t use the term 'working class' here because it’s a taboo term.

->You start out in 1954 by saying, 'Nigger, nigger, nigger.' By 1968 you can't say 'nigger' — [[NWordPrivileges that hurts you.]] Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights... You follow me? Because obviously sitting around saying, 'We want to cut this,' is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than 'Nigger, nigger.[='=]

->The [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem British National Party]] isn't about 'selling out' its ideas, which are your ideas too, but we are determined now to sell them, and that means basically to use the saleable words, as I say, freedom, security, identity, democracy. Nobody can criticise them. Nobody can come at you and attack you on those ideas. They are saleable.

->Ur-Fascism speaks Newspeak. Newspeak was invented by Orwell, in ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', as the official language of Ingsoc, English Socialism. But elements of Ur-Fascism are common to different forms of dictatorship. All the Nazi or Fascist schoolbooks made use of an impoverished vocabulary, and an elementary syntax, in order to limit the instruments for complex and critical reasoning. But we must be ready to identify other kinds of Newspeak, even if they take the apparently innocent form of a popular talk show.

->Every time a community springs up supposedly based only on mocking the 'excesses' of '{{Tumblr}} activists,' the moderates who are in it just to make fun of the feminists or anti-racists who are 'actually crazy' find themselves joined by 'redpillers' (i.e. [[HeManWomanHater men’s rights activists]]) and advocates of 'human biodiversity' (a coy euphemism for [[TheSocialDarwinist scientific racism and eugenics]]).
