RAW EGG NATIONALIST: Watching the Left die of their own failures is hilarious

Given the gravity of events in Israel since the weekend, it’s no surprise that the murders of Ryan Carson and Josh Kruger have more or less disappeared from the news cycle. In the somewhat less serious atmosphere pre-last Saturday, when the threat of World War III seemed just a little more distant, these murders presented us with a darkly humorous spectacle: the leftist getting a taste of their own medicine. And by “medicine”, I mean a great big nasty spoonful of the violence and chaos these people inflict on the rest of society with their utterly misguided ideas about human nature, authority, crime, justice and the nation.

You might think it’s wrong for me to suggest there’s humour in the demise of these young men. Yes, it is sad for the families and friends of these two young men – although Ryan Carson’s close friends appear to be cashing in rather than crying – but then again it’s also sad for the many thousands of families that have had their loved ones torn from them by dangerous criminals out on early parole or illegal immigrants who shouldn’t even be in the country in the first place.

I try not to laugh at anybody’s misfortune, knowing that I’m just as subject to the whims of fate as everyone else. Maybe I’ll choke on an egg tomorrow – who knows? I can guarantee there’d be leftists jumping up and down with joy if I did.

Still, I think you can agree, it’s not often enough that the architects of our civilisational decline are on the sharp end of their own policies, and in an environment where the right wins few precious victories, largely through its own fault, I’m quite prepared to indulge in a little bit of schadenfreude to raise my own spirit at least.

Not that these events are likely to change the behaviour of leftists – not even those who were supposedly closest to the victims. In between setting up a GoFundMe page to ensure they can “take time off work to grieve”, Carson’s friends made sure the whole world knew that, were he still alive, he would consider the man who brutally murdered him in front of his girlfriend a victim of socio-economic factors. Not a perpetrator.

New York Assembly member Emily Gallagher had this to say of Carson: “I'm absolutely positive that he would immediately see that this was a person who was suffering from a lack of resources in our community, who probably needs better mental health support, possibly housing, possibly drug support, drug treatment."

"What he would want to avenge his death is for us to fix how broken this city is," she added.

Her sentiments were echoed, with the emphasis on “structural wrongs in the city” rather than any notion of personal responsibility, by a number of others who called themselves friends of the deceased. If I were Ryan Carson’s ghost, I’d make sure to haunt these awful people for the rest of their lives.

We’ve seen this reaction before and not just in the US. We saw it after the 2019 London Bridge stabbing attacks, for example, in which a convicted terrorist released early on licence murdered two young people at a prisoner-rehabilitation conference, before rampaging across the iconic bridge. Both victims were leftist advocates for criminal-justice reform in the UK. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, the father of one of the victims, Jack Merritt, was quick to blast politicians and the media for suggesting that maybe convicted terrorists should be kept locked behind bars. What was important was to allow people the chance to “redeem themselves”: it was what his son wanted – so much he died for it.

New revelations have made the case of Josh Kruger even more darkly ironic. Kruger was shot seven times inside his own home in Philadelphia. The family of Robert Davis, the 19-year-old black man who apparently shot Kruger, now say that Kruger was a pedophile who had groomed Davis from age 15 and was threatening to post sexually explicit pictures of him online. The two men were actually in a drug-fuelled relationship that was destroying Davis’s life. “He was scared,” Davis’s mother said. “He said ‘He [Kruger] wanted me to do some stuff I didn’t want to do and if I didn’t do it, he said he was going to blackmail me.’” 

Police have already found “disturbing” explicit images on Kruger’s phone, as well as methamphetamine in his bedroom.

In his life as a formerly homeless openly gay HIV+ activist, Kruger spouted all the usual leftist talking points. I don’t need to list them here. But never was he more vocal than in his condemnation of how the “groomer” label is used to smear innocent souls – innocent souls who, it just so happens, want to lower or even abolish the age of consent and teach children about the pleasures of anal sex from their very first day at school.

Back in 2018, Kruger tweeted:

“The centuries old smear that gay men are pedophiles is getting new life thanks to coordination between far right news sites and far right message boards. This egregious defamation is part of a strategy to target LGBTQ people with violence.”

Well, well, well. Methinks the laddie doth protest too much!

In truth, though, it’s hardly a surprise that a man like Kruger should turn out to be exactly what he so vigorously claimed was an “egregious defamation” by the dreaded “far right”.

It’s been something of an open secret, let’s call it “Kyle’s Law”, since the events in Kenosha on that fateful night in 2020, that you can take, say, three radical leftists at random from a mob and there’s a guaranteed chance all of them will have a criminal record and at least one of them will be a pedophile. Joseph Rosenbaum – the bald twerp barking “shoot me, n***a”, before Rittenhouse kindly granted his final wish – raped multiple children aged between 9 and 11. To this day, Antifa call him a “hero”. How cute.

Nature has provided us with instincts for a reason. Stereotypes develop for a purpose. They may not always be right, but they’ve been right enough times that they’ve stuck. And they’ll continue to stick. One of the many great iniquities of our age is that we’re told, indeed obliged, to disavow the deep instinctual responses that have allowed us to survive as a species for hundreds of thousands of years. Disgust, perhaps most of all.

We can get technical about the causes of our present decline. I’ve talked about anarcho-tyranny, and how liberal regimes collude in lawlessness because it allows them to consolidate power, terrifying the middle classes into submission and ensuring they continue to hand over their valuable tax dollars. This is absolutely true. But it’s also true that there are more mundane, but no less disturbing, reasons behind the promotion of lawlessness and the destruction of all previous moral standards. As my friend Auron MacIntyre puts it, “It’s not rocket science. They’re just evil and want to diddle kids.”

The desire to do evil, and to diddle kids, can’t be discounted as a powerful motivation for the footsoldiers and banner-wavers of radical leftism. (Then again, the Jeffrey Epstein saga revealed a large portion of the global elite are probably evil kiddy-diddlers too.) Deep-seated resentment and hatred of what is good and beautiful – and especially of what is innocent – combine in a murderous, frothing rage for inversion. Nietzsche knew this. The Russian general Pyotr Wrangel, who led the White forces during the Russian civil war, knew it too, and unlike Nietzsche he saw its bloody effects up close and personal. It terrified him, but also strengthened his resolve to fight and win. Wrangel’s account of the Russian Civil War, Always with Honour, is required reading for anybody who wants to know what might come next for America and the West.

Many of these people have had bad things done to them at some point. Josh Kruger revealed that he himself had been sexually abused as a minor.

“When I was 14, I was sexually abused by an adult,” he tweeted way back in 2017. “I thought I acted in a way that I deserved it and should be ‘OK.’” Man hands on misery to man, as the poet Philip Larkin put it. And Josh Kruger certainly did that, it would seem.

So how to break the cycle? Robert Davis, apparently, thought only a bullet could do the trick. Maybe he was right.
