Definition of far-right in 2022


In the wake of Giorgia Meloni’s fantastic win in Italy yesterday, the MSM have gone into overdrive, screeching and screaming how Meloni is “far-right”.  So I thought to myself, what do the left and their mouthpieces mean when they smear someone as “far-right”? Well, I have come up with the following.  The definition of “far-right” in 2022 is….

  1. A person who believes there are only two genders – male and female.
  2. A person who believes a woman is an adult, human female.
  3. A person who believes a man is an adult, human male.
  4. A person who believes you cannot change your biological sex.
  5. A person who believes a woman cannot have a penis.
  6. A person who believes someone is not assigned sex at birth.
  7. A person who believes biological males should not compete against biological females.
  8. A person who believes transgender women are not women.
  9. A person who believes transgender men are not men.
  10. A person who believes males prisoners should not be imprisoned in female prisons.
  11. A person who believes children should not be mutilated into the cult of gender ideology.
  12. A person who believes children should not be sexualised by exposure to sexual perverts and exhibitionists such as drag queens.
  13. A person who believes that it is parents, and not the state, who are the best custodians and decision makers for their children.
  14. A person who believes carbon emission are not destroying the planet.
  15. A person who believes in fossil fuels.
  16. A person who believes in nuclear energy.
  17. A person who believes renewables such as wind and solar are unreliable and will never provide base load energy.
  18. A person who believes in lifting humanity out of poverty, not confining them to poverty.
  19. A person who believes in free speech.
  20. A person who believes in small limited government.
  21. A person who wants government to stay out of their lives.
  22. A person who believes in fiscal responsibility.
  23. A person who believes in individual liberty.
  24. A person who believes in religious freedom.
  25. A person who believes in the significant role small and medium sized businesses should play in a country’s economy.
  26. A person who believes in legal but limited immigration.
  27. A person who does not believe in open borders.
  28. A person who believes countries must have strong borders.
  29. A person who believes in the nation state.
  30. A person who believes in patriotism.
  31. A person who believes men are not evil.
  32. A person who believes white people are not evil.
  33. A person who believes that what is important in a fellow human is the content of their character, not the colour of their skin.
  34. A person who believes the West has been an enlightening presence in the world.
  35. A person who believes western history is not one long horror story.
  36. A person who believes in a strong military.
  37. A person who believes in free fair markets.
  38. A person who believes in Western Civilisation.
  39. A person who believes in the Judaic Christian tradition, a tradition which underpins the West.
  40. A person who believes in the primary role of the family in any society.
  41. A person who believes that marriage is between a biological man and a biological woman.

I don’t think the above points are particularly reactionary. Please feel free to add to the above list. In the meantime I have a confession to make, I believe in ALL the above. So, since the MSM, the left, various progressive scum like the two I confronted on Oxford Street the other day, academia, entertainment and numerous others, insist on smearing and labelling you, me and others as “far-right”, all because we believe in some or all of the above, then we need to come out of the closet, we need to stand up and we need to be proud. To paraphrase Kramer from one of my favourite Seinfeld episodes….

“Oh, it be so everybody, I’m far-right, I’m proud and I’m loving every minute of it”.

“Far Right” seems to have become like “Deplorable” and “Ultra MAGA” to be worn as a badge of pride. It is a shame the language (and history) is being bastardised like this as it divides us further into tribes and makes good faith dialogue much more difficult. It makes you think on how civil wars start….gradually then at some point, all of sudden.

I do like Hayek’s definition of fascist in The Road to Serfdom. The discussion is detailed but it does not really matter whether one is left or right. We can put those terms aside.

Socialism of the Marxist type is really a fiction – a-will-‘o-the-wisp – and has never seen the light of day. It is a conjured phantom. Stalinism, Hitlerism, democratic socialism and like movements lead away from individualism (i.e. methodological individualism), freedom and liberalism of the older type to nationalisation and collectivism (i.e. methodological holism), with certain self-styled elites leading the way onward and upward into the bright new morning day of utopia. Fascist. But Gil Eliot’s “Twentieth Century Book of the Dead” has shown that 100 million or so dead shows that lie for what it is worth.

You could argue that what passes for democratic socialism today is the creeping movement of nationalisation, such as what has occurred in Venezuela, with self-styled elites using the democratic process to increase the size, reach and power of the state and its bureaucratic machinery, as it seeks to dictate every crevice and nuance of life and re-mold man into the neo-serf. That same is occurring in Victoria: the Labor Party by definition does not care about its constituents, as it uses them to get into power and then votes along party lines to remain in power by using subterfuge and dubious moral means to buy allegance and votes.

The key issue is a greater (i.e. fascism) or lesser (i.e. older type of liberalism) centralisation of the state and its bureaucratic machinery. The new Italian Prime Minister seems to be pursuing a minimalist role for the state and the EU and a greater role and return to that most hated of instutions, the family!

I’m getting attracted to the US meme of being “based”, though I’m being careful about figuring out exactly what it is. As far as now, I reckon it’s got a lot to do with knowing thyself, having the words prepared, and not pandering one bit to the feelz of the screechers.

All the list demonstrates is that pretty much everything on it was entirely “uncontroversial”* mainstream thought as recently as about 2005.

Even a useless narcissistic knobhead like keating recognised this with his comment about two poofters and a shitzu not constituting a family.

The other infuriating aspect of the list is the prominence of the utterly insane tranny stupidity – this ridiculous offensive misogynist rubbish was never tolerated in the soviet union or if you prefer a more contemporary example, bloody china. Talk about gross destructive decadence.

*As opposed to “controversial”, the braindead lamestream meeja’s preferred smear of anyone holding normal run of the mill beliefs.

The Left is into projection in a big way. It seems to be a fairly recent strategy they’ve developed. So whenever they accuse a righty of being something you can sure they are projecting.

In this case the people who fit the definition of fascists are the very people accusing Meloni of being a fascist.

Shorter form – far right means a person who believes in things that have been believed in and foundations of the West often since time immemorial, but certainly that have underpinned it for centuries.

Even absolute free speech is a relative newcomer, but goes back at least as far as the enlightenment.

So, if you have beliefs that have been at the core of our civilisation, going back generations, for which people have fought and died, then you are part of a strange fringe who are a threat to civilisation.

On the other hand, if you think the family should be dissolved, and that a person’s sex is as changeable as a mood (even to the point that physical sexual traits are irrelevant), that children who have no sexual drive yet need to be pre-programmed with something to forestall nature, and that thoughts in someone else’s head that you don’t agree with is violence, then you are a guardian of civilisation.

Good post Cassie.

As Rabz points out, almost everything you say would not have been considered remotely controversial twenty years ago.

Like most ‘far right’ persons, my opinions on the basic tenets you list have not significantly changed in the past 20-30-40 years but now I’m an ‘old white guy’, a veritable dinosaur, with opinions that are no longer politically or socially valid/acceptable.

I can’t help but be pessimistic on the long-term future of the West, and not because we now seem to have little in common, but because our enemies have recognised our decline and are exploiting every weakness eventually leading to our economic (and military) subservience. Where will be be in 20-30-40 years from now?

A person who knows ‘gender’ and ‘sex’ are interchangeable terms for the two sexes.

I thought it was completely to do with language. As far as I can see, “sex” is the word for who is either male or female.

noun: A grammatical category, often designated as male, female, or neuter, used in the classification of nouns, pronouns, adjectives, and, in some languages, verbs that may be arbitrary or based on characteristics such as sex or animacy and that determines agreement with or selection of modifiers, referents, or grammatical forms.

I scored 85% on the Definition of Far Right in 2022 According To The Left According To Cassie scale.
Which probably makes me Far Left in her view.

Notable troublespots on Cassie’s list were:
1. her misuse of the word gender where she really meant sex. Gender is a linguistic and social construct, the sex is the biological bit. But conservatives have taboos against sex so they don’t like saying the word sex, which leads them into this mistake.
24. Religion in practice has to have some limitation for basically the same reason government has to have a limitation. No pure ideological goal gets an unlimited free pass. You might think religious freedom was a good idea if you had never heard of any religion other than your own.

Some others I didn’t fully agree with but not as strongly.
The phrasing was imprecise in several. e.g. Only agreed with 17 because technically they cannot do it by themselves but in theory could do with enough storage, it’s just topographically and economically prohibitive.

Maybe there should be a list of the foibles of the left. Can I give a few starters:-
1. When they can’t find anything wrong call the person ‘racist.’
2. When they are in a corner cry ‘fascist.’
3. When they speak of weather it’s ‘Climate change.’
4. When they don’t like your different point of view you are silenced.
5. They have no scientific knowledge of anatomy or chromosomes.
6. They have no basic moral compass.
7. Many have no conscience in areas like abortion or euthanasia.
8. Lying is seen as essential.
9. Control is seen as virtue.
10. Fanaticism is considered normal.
11. Violence is acceptable and encouraged.
12. Covert and sinister behaviour is acceptable.
