The reason Moldbug blamed “Puritans” for being “leftists” is because liberal Protestant Christians are the forefront of the BDS movement, which is considered the most significant threat to Israel. “Liberal Protestants” are the major competitors to Jews on the left, so Moldbug – trying to recruit non-leftist Whites to his cause – blamed the anti-white “Left” on White Protestants, not Jews.
It’s not even particularly complicated now is it?
Around the neoreaction spheres, there is a commonly held belief that much of leftist can be attributed to “Puritanism”. This idea was first popularized by Moldbug and has since been championed by various bloggers, which recently has erupted into a debate (see here, here, here, here, here, here, etc.)
While I’m a Moldbug fan and like some of his concepts, I think that Moldbugian critique of progressivism is wrong for a number of reasons.
First, the radicals who have drastically changed Western society over the past 150 years or so have not been Puritans but in fact Ashkenazis:
Marx – undermine traditional European regimes
Freud – legitimizes sexual degeneracy
Franz Boas – popularizes the “race doesn’t exist” meme
Ashley Montagu – also popularizes “race doesn’t exist” meme and makes racism the greatest sin of the West
Adorno and Horkheimer – Cultural Marxism, delegitimize white people
