The Johnson Conundrum

The resiliency of Greg Johnson: An analysis of a skillful political actor.

Question: How has Greg Johnson not only survived various scandals and other embarrassments but emerged stronger than ever?

After the episode of the Pilleater Chronicles and its fallout and then the revelations about Polignano, folks like Forney were telling us (and this was nearly a year ago) that “Greg Johnson is finished” etc. The whole Forney-Friberg-Spencer anti-Johnson axis (that exists even though they may have squabbles among themselves; e.g., Forney being critical of Spencer) more or less adopted the line that Johnson and Counter-Currents were in terminal decline – “finished”- and  that there was no recovery from the scandals. These types were saying the same thing after Johnson was publicly humiliated by the HopeNotHate Hermansson infiltration, and his having Hermansson give the keynote address at a Counter-Currents meeting.  Then there was the Lewis infiltration.  Any one of these scandals would have been sufficient to delegitimize, perhaps terminally sink, another, less resilient, “movement leader.”  After each of these scandals, Johnson’s leading rivals in the Alt Right loudly predicted his imminent “movement” demise.

They were of course wrong, and Greg Johnson and Counter-Currents continues to go on strongly, raising money, continuing to be “big” in Der Movement – in fact, it is the Forney-Friberg-Spencer faction that seem to be in decline. If there has been any “victor” in the feud, it has been Johnson. Forney continues doing his thing but with very limited influence, Friberg apparently the same, and Spencer is reduced to wrapping himself in the Iranian flag and tweeting about his love life. On the other hand, the destructive Frankenstein monster that is Counter-Currents keeps on lumbering along, and it was Johnson who made international news after being arrested in Norway.  Johnson stands up there with Taylor and MacDonald as among the “Elders” of the (particularly, American) “movement”- I would argue that Greg Johnson’s power and influence within the “movement” has never been greater.

So, how has this happened?  How did Johnson emerge like a phoenix rising out of the ashes from these scandals to reach a pinnacle of influence, despite the scandals, and, perhaps just as importantly, despite the fact that Counter-Currents has displayed a shocking decline in quality, with the most moronic, superficial, hypocritical, pretentious, and juvenile crop of “writers” ever assembled at any one Far Right site?  Counter-Currents should be sliding into Majority Rights-style oblivion and irrelevancy, but, so far, unfortunately, the opposite is happening.

It would be instructive to examine why all of this is so. Such an examination will shed much needed light on Der Movement, and illuminate the underlying rot within that allows someone like Johnson to prosper.  After all consider – Spencer received more criticism, attacks, and disavowals because of the nonsense of Hailgate than did Johnson for the Pilleater and Polignano scandals, which were, at least in my opinion, far worse.

I don’t recall Taylor, Brimelow, and Devlin et al. publicly distancing themselves from Johnson over issues that are far more serious than Spencer acting like an immature jackass.


Some possible reasons for all of that include:

The affirmative action program.  The “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program is an important factor here. Johnson claims to be of English descent, of founding Old American stock, whose family has been in America since colonial days; he is also phenotypically Nordic.  Now, since Spencer himself is an Anglo-Germanic Nordic, and he has collapsed as an activist, having the proper ancestral (and phenotypic) bonafides is necessary but not sufficient.  One can have the “proper” ancestry and phenotype, but if they crash and burn completely, and are politically inept, nothing will help them. On the other hand, if Johnson was a wop or hunkie – or even possibly a “Nordish” mick – he would have not survived the scandals, regardless of anything else. Ancestry and phenotype are important factors here.

Lesson.  If you don’t have the “right” ancestry, forget about trying to have any influence in Der Movement. If you do have the “right” ancestry, then you really have to be incredibly inept and politically clumsy to fall from grace (e.g., Spencer).

Costs vs. benefits.  Let’s compare Spencer’s Hailgate to Johnson’s scandals with respect to the response (or lack thereof) of other “movement leaders.” I argue that “movement leaders” may well have had practical political reasons for disavowing Spencer while being silent about Johnson, through the weighing of costs vs. benefits.

Hailgate – although in and of itself petty nonsense – became national news because of the Alt Right-Trump connection and because of Spencer’s notoriety at the time, and because of the fact that the 2016 election results were fresh in everyone’s memory. The media leveraged Spencer’s poor judgment to attack other Alt Right leaders as “suit and tie Nazis.” This endangered the status, reputation, and money-making ability of various “leaders” and gave them a very strong motivation to publicly disavow and criticize Spencer. The benefits of disavowing Spencer were clear. What about the costs? These “leaders” probably considered Spencer an immature lightweight and judged that the costs of disavowing Spencer were minimal – Spencer would not, or could not, mount an effective counter-attack against them, and the supporters of these other “leaders” would be unlikely to withdraw support over their Hailgate criticism.

On the other hand, Johnson’s scandals have not been national news and have not directly impacted other major Alt Right figures. These others may have a moral and ethical obligation to criticize Johnson, but what do any of these types care about morals and ethics?  It’s a purely utilitarian consideration for them – there are little practical benefits for disavowing Johnson.  On the other hand, there are real costs. Johnson is a much more dangerous person than is Spencer, and more likely to mount an effective counter-attack. One could imagine Counter-Currents suddenly critiquing Amren over the JQ or once again saying Amren conferences are a waste, or critiquing VDARE’s taking so much “movement” money or once again criticizing Derbyshire, etc.  The same intensity that Counter-Currents focused on the likes of Spencer and Friberg would now be aimed at these other targets.  So, there’s a cost with no practical benefit, and issues of morals and ethics and character mean nothing.  So, these folks give Johnson a “pass” for things worse than what Spencer did.

Lesson. Morals, ethics, and character count for nothing in Der Movement and among “movement leaders.” It is all practical considerations of image, status, and “movement” politics, with a focus on assuring maintenance of supporters and supporter donations.  A well-connected person whose influence is feared by others of like standing can get away with more than someone like Spencer, who is more isolated and is not considered to have the gravitas to be a “heavy player” in the “game.”

The political game.  Johnson, for all his manifest faults, is very, very good at playing the political game – or at least as good as someone who has horrifically bad judgment and who likes feuding can be. Johnson inevitably ends up on bad terms with people in the “movement,” including former allies, but you’ll note that he typically only engages in one major feud at a time.  Former allies may become enemies, and sometimes, typically briefly, vice versa, but these twists and turns occur one at a time. He never engages in any major “two-front war.” Alliances are formed and broken, one feud is engaged in and won, former allies then become foes, new allies are recruited, etc.  Jorjani was used skillfully here – and that was as much the result of Spencer’s political clumsiness and it was Johnson’s skill at using people for just as long as he needs them to undermine his main foes. All these people are used and discarded as fits the agenda, with consummate political skill. As historical analogies, consider Julius Caesar using and discarding Pompey or Augustus doing the same with Marc Antony.  Or how Catherine the Great used and discarded “court favorites” (including lovers) to achieve power. Hitler used and the discarded various people during his rise to power – Eckart, Strasser, Rohm, etc.  One can consider how various organized crime figures rose to prominence through alliances, which they later discarded when it no longer suited them (often killing the former allies).  The Kennedys used Mafia connections to reach the White House, after which Robert Kennedy moved against these former allies. Then there’s the Hitler-Stalin Pact of 1939.  You get the picture.

Johnson is also good at “glad-handling” and having friendships with “movement” bigwigs that – for as long as they last before falling apart – provide a cushion of support and prevent those bigwigs from calling out Johnson’s faults. Taylor as an example.  Note that Johnson won’t call out Taylor for “being in bed with the press” (as I note here), while criticizing others. Note that Johnson now supports and attends Amren conferences despite telling us several years ago that attending such meetings was a waste of time and money (money being, of  course, better used for “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents).  Thus, in summary, despite his proclivity to feud, Johnson has still maintained friendly relations with a number of “movement” bigwigs, and that no doubt helps insulate Johnson from the consequences of his manifest failures and various scandals.

Further, whatever what actually happened, the actual “technics” of each accomplishment, the end result was that – if Polignano’s correspondence with Friberg can be believed – Johnson was able to remove Polignano as having any control over Counter-Currents. And John Morgan, originally with Arktos, has ended up with Counter-Currents.  Whether all of this was the result of Machiavellian plotting or just serendipity, one cannot argue with the results. Johnson has weathered all sorts of storms, out-maneuvered rivals, and has a firm control of the Counter-Currents “empire,” such as it is. He therefore is revealed as a reasonably savvy player in the game and art of “movement” politics.  Much better than the likes of Spencer, who, by contrast, is politically clumsy and inept.

Lesson. Being right is not enough to advance your position; being wrong is not enough to retard your progress.  Humans are essentially political animals, and in any grouping that has individuals vying for status and to advance their agendas, political maneuvering will be important.  Johnson is a savvy political operator and thus has not only survived scandals that would have wrecked other prominent activists, but he has prospered while his main rivals (e.g., Spencer) have fallen by the wayside. 


Should activists involved in Der Movement concentrate on such internal politics? The benefits are clear.  What about the costs?  There are costs of time and energy.  There is the mental costs; this can be exhausting, particularly for people who are by nature introverts.  Political maneuvering can always backfire. It also compromises, to some extent, honor and integrity, and, if it is noticed by others, can stain one’s reputation as an honest broker.

A cost-benefit analysis can be done. It depends on context.  An overt and public activist like Johnson has more to gain from politics than someone pseudonymous; however, pseudonymous activists can still benefit. Extroverts have it easier than introverts, but as long as they are not extreme and semi-autistic, introverts can still benefit from politics. The main thing is the affirmative action program.  An activist of Northwest European ancestry – particularly those of British/German/Scandinavian ancestry – can derive great benefit from engaging in “movement” politics since they have great potential for advancement and a rapid rise to leadership. On the other hand, activists of Southern (especially) or Eastern European ancestry  have little or nothing to gain since, regardless of how skilled they may be at the political game, their ancestry bars them from rising to the extent of those from more favored groups. Years of effort can be quickly wiped out by comments about “Moops and Mongols” and other manifestations of “movement” ethnic fetishism. So the relative costs and benefits in this case primarily vary based on their potential benefits, and that varies based on the ancestry of the activist in question. Now, in a truly pan-European movement, this factor would be eliminated, but perhaps there political maneuvering would be somewhat less important than it is in Der Movement.

The cabal and the alliances. Political connections go beyond just one-on-one relationships and include group alliances. There has been talk about a “homosexual cabal” in the “movement” – one that I was warned about as far back as the early 2000s.  There is also the HBD-ethnonationalist-Nordicist alliance. All these groupings, working behind the scenes, can provide crucial support for “movement leaders” who are well-connected.  On the other hand, people like Spencer, more isolated, and whose support is out-in-the –open and very shallow, have no deep support network that can provide a cushion in times of crisis.

Lesson. What goes on behind the curtain is often more important than what goes on in front of it.

The personal revelations. The personal revelations on the Pilleater tape did not have the effects that Forney, Friberg, and company thought, because it was basically an “open secret” in the “movement” for anyone who had a triple digit IQ, and anyone demanding “proof” was basically just engaging in obstructionism or were low-level idiots without any standing in the “movement.” Other aspects of that tape didn’t have much of an impression because things – such as bad behavior at meetings – have been rumored for a long time.  As far as Polignano goes and the revelations in that discussion with Friberg, who in the “movement” really cares about someone with a name like “Polignano” anyway?  Someone named “Johnson” screwing over someone named “Polignano” is a positive in Der Movement, not a negative.

Lesson. What people think is going to have a profound effect upon revelation may not do so, if the revelations are already suspected and/or known, or if the people hearing the revelation actually don’t think what they are hearing is really a bad thing at all.

Ideological flexibility.  Johnson maximizes support with remarkable ideological flexibility – what some would call inconsistency or even hypocrisy.  Johnson is a leading proponent of petty nationalist ethnonationalism – yet Counter-Currents publishes and promotes the work of Francis Parker Yockey and previously hosted some of my own essays promoting pan-Europeanism.  Counter-Currents has both promoted and criticized HBD, has both promoted and criticized Nordicism, has both promoted and criticized racial purity, has both promoted and criticized Amren conferences, has promoted both Traditionalism and Futurism, has White-Knighted as well as run the work of Devlin, Johnson has harshly criticized Derbyshire and then shared the stage with him at Amren – you get the picture.  This maximizes support and lets Johnson have a foot in different “movement” factions.

Lesson. Being two-faced has its advantages.


Practical consistency.  The ideological inconsistency doesn’t bother the Type I retards that constituent the majority of Der Movement, since their own “ideology” is simply a mash-up of Kempian Nordicism, chugging gallons of milk, screaming “Kek!,” etc. Indeed, as stated, the inconsistency is an advantage to maintain appeal among “activists” who are a cut above the dimwit majority and actually do care about ideas, but themselves are still too dim too realize that Counter-Currents has been all over the board on a number of important issues.


More important perhaps is consistency in the practical realm.  Successful activists tend to be ones that consistently are associated with a particular project or group or organization of project.  Taylor with American Renaissance.  Johnson with Counter-Currents.  MacDonald with The Occidental Observer and his various books.  Pierce (and Strom, who has survived controversy of his own) with the National Alliance. On the other hand, the more unsuccessful activists, whose careers are less than the sum of their parts – Spencer and Duke for example – have a history of jumping from one failed project to another.  At some point, I lost track of all of the various groups that Duke formed, led for a few years, and then abandoned. There was the White version of the NAACP (NAAWP), then wasn’t there something called NOFEAR, then EURO, etc?  And that was after his Klan days and his foray into electoral politics.  Spencer has had his varied Alt Right websites sites and the Alt Right corporation, and all sorts of other podcasts and projects, jumping from one to another. All of this failure and inconsistency  does not inspire confidence. On the other hand, stability such as Johnson with Counter-Currents gives him an air of “competence” and is another reason he survives scandal better than Spencer.

Conclusion. This is by no means a comprehensive analysis, but touches upon what I see as some of the main reasons why Johnson has survived and prospered, while Spencer has imploded.  Of course, some of it is just better judgment – Johnson had the good sense not to be involved in Unite the Right.  But, still, comparing the flak that Spencer got for Hailgate compared to Johnson thriving after scandal begs for an explanation – that I have tried to supply.  As further events unfold, more such analysis may be forthcoming.


The underlying lessons here demonstrate the importance of political networking, and various non-merit attributes, in elevating and sustaining individuals in positions of prominence in Der Movement. They provide a blueprint for “activists” with the proper affirmative action-approved ancestral backgrounds to follow to effectively play the political game, and allow others to better understand how they are being “played” by the “leaders” they so blindly support.


Johnson is not going anywhere; he is seemingly here to stay. Although there are some in the “movement” who will never accept him, enough others will so as to ensure that he will be a force within Der Movement for years to come, barring any unforeseen circumstances. And it is difficult to imagine what such circumstances could occur that would dethrone Johnson from his “leadership” position. Given the previous incidents and scandals that have proven unable to do so. As we can see, Amren continues to peddle Johnson’s work. One can expect that Greg Johnson and Counter-Currents will continue to have a significant impact on racial activism and prove the predictions of Forney false.


In any case, we can hope this analysis provokes more discussion and debate and, perhaps, soul-searching among “movement” “activists” with respect to their “leadership.”

Odds and Ends, 12/4/19

Various issues.

Greg Johnson describes how he attacks those on the Right:

principled intellectual disagreement vs. personal invective (It is not “divisive” to sincerely disagree with someone.)
defending oneself from attacks vs. launching attacks on others
calling out people for harming the movement vs. pointless personal vendettas

The problem is that this is exactly what Ted Sallis does, but when Ted does it, he’s “crazy and bitter” and to be “banned.”

Type Is on the march.

Zaremski was an emergency medical technician who frequented white supremacist forums online and had a trove of neo-Nazi literature. He was caught only because he sent a photo of his ex-girlfriend wearing parts of a Nazi uniform to her employer, officials said…He also affixed a “Right Wing Death Squad” patch to his EMT jacket.

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

Look at this naïve buffoon presenting ancestry testing results to the decimal point for Gabbard, including percentages of 3.8, 1.1, and 0.8.  Depending on the test and the parental populations used, I would question even the percentages in the 20s.

Let it not be said that the “movement’s” affirmative action “leadership” does not come up with brilliant ideas – this is one!  Heil Der Movement!  Heil!  

No, actually the Alt Right should just continue on the glorious path already established.

Andrew Fraser wanna-be and “Wilmot” lover Morris the Liar is back again with the same old shtick. Question – wasn’t it the grand old WASP foreign policy establishment that gave us American involvement in WWI and WWII (and don’t start braying about “Pearl Harbor” with respect to the latter, with all the grand work Der Movement has done over the years uncovering the FDR administration’s perfidy regarding that)?

Oh you’ll say – the Jews were manipulating there.  If that is the case, as far back as WWI, then when did the USA have an authentically Humphrey Irelandish foreign policy apparatus?  The Spanish American War perhaps, brought to us by grand fellows like Hearst (journalism leading foreign policy) and the reason we have so many Puerto Ricans and Filipinos in American today.  What?  Do we gave to go back to Polk and the Mexican American War?  Or perhaps Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase?  Or Washington’s Farewell Address?

Der Movement likes to pontificate, but cannot back up all of the hot air with historical reality.

If you believe that in the past that American foreign policy was run by the “Majority,” then this is relevant.  Fiction mirroring reality. After all, if Der Movement loves the Pesci scene so much, they can also consider the content of the remainder of the movie as well.

Now, I did state:

A case can be made that folks like the Wilsons founded and built America and so they have the right to pull the strings…

Very well.  But if so, at least have the honesty to admit when the Wilsons screw things up, instead of pretending those were halcyon days – the Golden Age of foreign affairs from which we’ve sadly fallen to the Yogi Bear (“Kali Yuga”). But then, the concept of accountability is not very well accepted by Der Movement and its “leadership,” is it?

My response to this nonsense is this EGI Notes post.  Fact is, Rushton was exposed as a fraud and a personal hypocrite by a fellow HBDer.  That Johnson blithely ignores the facts about his hero and continues to peddle him as some sort of admirable figure is unfortunate but not (to me) surprising.

Please Watch This Video

I’ve been warning you about all of this for many years.

The price of affirmative action – if you watch anything, watch this.  It’s a must. You can find it on Amazon, for example.

It’s all there. The humiliating ease of the infiltration, and how quickly and seamlessly Hermansson rose within the ranks of the pitiful Alt Right. Note that, apparently, ZERO significant (if any) background checks were done on him. Note that no one bothered to check whether or not his false persona was real, whether or not that false persona was, in reality, actually a university student writing a dissertation. No, the “extreme vetting” was essentially: “Are you Swedish?”- literally.  Thus: “You’re Swedish…talk to Steadman.”  That was followed up with meeting with Stead Steadman at Steadman’s favorite eatery…The Nordic Bakery.

I kid you not. You just can’t make this stuff up. Nor could you make up the “Odin Ceremony”- if I tried to invent a parody of Der Movement’s ethnic fetishism, I couldn’t do a better job.  If I tried to invent a scenario demonstrating how Der Movement’s extreme Nordicism has real-life negative consequences, I couldn’t do any better than this. A jug-eared, effeminate, pipe stem-armed Swedish homosexual, with a transparently false identity, is rapidly brought up in the “movement” to the point that he’s doing background checks on legitimate meeting attendees (and laughably warned about “Martin the HopenotHate infiltrator”), and giving a opening speech about the dangers of infiltration (!) at one of Johnson’s meetings, all simply because of Steadman’s ethnoracial obsessions.  I’ll pass over the juvenile jackassery of the “Extremist Club,” the counter-productive provocations of Turner, and the delusions of Jorjani.

What an absolute train wreck. Don’t say you weren’t warned. At the same time all of that was going on, the “crazy and bitter” Sallis was denouncing the Alt Right, warning all of you about the Alt Right, denouncing Jorjani and the whole AltRight Corporation, warning about the “movement’s” ethnic fetishism and Nordicism, being skeptical about the “extreme vetting” – correct about it all.

All of the people who facilitated Hermansson’s joyride through the “movement” have NO business still being involved in racial activism in any capacity – but of course they still are. Of course.  Affirmative action works wonders, eh?

See this.  It’s so easy for them.


And let us not forget this great moment in “extreme vetting” operational security (emphasis added):

I e-mailed Dr. Greg Johnson, organizer of Northwest Forum, Seattle’s hottest closed-door white nationalist convention, asking for an interview on the latest in regional racism. He turned me down. Thanks to the internet, the far right no longer needs the mainstream media to get its message out. Print, television, and radio lose their relevance when everybody’s just a click away from Pepe the Frog, Disney songs dubbed with racist lyrics, and pseudo-intellectual essays that somehow try to bring ancient Rome into all this.

Also thanks to the internet, it only took me about an hour to change my identity from David Lewis, Seattle historian, to Dave Lewis, Neo-Nazi film editor and aspiring book critic from Charlottesville, currently living in Los Angeles. This Dave Lewis has never been to Seattle, but has always wanted to attend Northwest Forum.

My film editor persona dangled a giant chunk of cheese in front of Dr. Johnson. In addition to being a racist, Johnson is also a huge cinephile…Dr. Johnson bit the cheese. Entry into Northwest Forum typically requires “extreme vetting,” which means meeting in person and getting a beer with one of the Northwest’s white separatist organizations like True Cascadia. But I didn’t even have to send in a photoMy e-mail invite listed the forum for August 26th at noon…

Accountability?  Zero.  Consequences?  Zero.  Indeed, the “D’Nations” keep on flowing in.

Our goal this year is to raise $100,000. So far, we have received 367 donations totaling $92,489.93. This is an enormous outpouring of commitment and support.

Remember that the next time Hood scribbles that “the only thing we need is money.”

Santayana:

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

That is why you rank-and-file fellows need to be reminded, time and again, of the humiliating stupidity and collapse of the Alt Right, and of the practical consequences of the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program.

Read this.  (Note: How about “HBD as anti-White pseudoscience?”)  Emphasis added:

Krosch has a broad, testosteronized punim like that of the fanatical Swedish climate crusader Greta Thunberg. 

What?  Blasphemy!  Doesn’t he know that Thunberg is Swedish?  He’s going to get his Der Movement, Inc. membership card revoked!  What are Thunberg praisers like Durocher and Counter-Currents going to think?  For shame!  (Shame culture activated!)

Now, I was rebuked in the comments to my last article at TOO for “draw[ing] attention to minor deficiencies in [the] physical beauty” of the journalists Stephen Daisley and Tanya Gold, but I don’t think the rebuke was valid. As the great Chateau Heartiste has often pointed out: “Physiognomy is real.” The ugliness of leftism as an ideology is often reflected in the ugliness of leftists as people. I also agree with a fascinating article at National Vanguard arguing that “Jews themselves are an unattractive and, on average, ugly people” and that “Jews, as a group, oppose beauty.” In fact, the Talmud advises Jews not to regard physical beauty as important in marriage: “For ‘false is grace and beauty is vain.’ Pay regard to good breeding, for the object of marriage is to have children” (Taanith 26b and 31a).

This seems to be the article in question.  By the way, my own essay on the subject was written without knowing about that National Vanguard piece. The Talmud quote supports my theory.


Those conservatives – like folks who shill for capitalism?  By the way, note how Asians mirror Black and Hispanic voting and public opinion patterns – the same as Jews, it should be noted.  Colored is as Colored does.

Ethnonationalism marches on.  Hail Brexit!  Hail ethnonationalism!  Rule Britannia!

Counter-Currents marches on:

A possible objection bears discussion. All Indo-European beliefs, and indeed most traditional doctrines the world over, posit an inevitable end to this world. Whether it comes to a close with the Age of Iron, the Second Coming, the Age of the Wolf, or the Kali Yuga…

Rewritten:

A possible objection bears discussion. All Type I “traditionalist” beliefs, and indeed most traditional doctrines the world over, posit an inevitable end to this world. Whether it comes to a close with the Age of Aluminum, the Googolplex Coming, the Age of the Hamster, or the Yogi Bear…

Behold the Millennial “activist” Jeelvy:

I am a crotchety and aging millennial, with a self-cut undercut; my body is a hearty mix of muscle and . . . heh, insulating material; and my head is full of sanity-preserving copes, nightmares, and immature dick jokes. I’ve got a tenuous grip on a sinecure, I write for Counter-Currents, I lift weights and practice martial arts, and I hike with my wife on weekends. Her tits are only slightly bigger than my clenched fist. I have a Facebook page where I post photos of puppies and horses.

The entirety of Jeelvy’s writing can be summed up thus.

Time for Jeelvy to get hysterical about “Boomer mate poaching.”  No Bueno!

Shallow and stupid: It’s Jef Costello.  Isn’t he thankful about Ann Coulter as well?  When’s breakfast going to be ready?  Dinesh is getting hungry too.

More on Rome and Odds and Ends

Several issues.

Read this.  Emphasis added:

Although inhumation was practiced regularly in archaic Rome, cremation was the most common burial practice in the Mid- to Late Republic and the Empire into the 1st and 2nd centuries. Crematory images appear in Latin poetry on the theme of the dead and mourning. In one of the best-known classical Latin poems of mourning, Catullus writes of his long journey to attend to the funeral rites of his brother, who died abroad, and expresses his grief at addressing only silent ash.[13] When Propertius describes his dead lover Cynthia visiting him in a dream, the revenant’s dress is scorched down the side and the fire of the pyre has corroded the familiar ring she wears.[14]

Ultimately, inhumation would replace cremation; a variety of factors, including decreasing levels of urbanization and changes in attitudes to the afterlife, would contribute to this marked shift in popular burial practices.

So, a problem with the recent Rome paper – that is of course not their fault but they could have specifically mentioned it as a limitation of their study – is that they had to work with the samples available, those that were inhumed. They do make a statement in their supplementary section about class differences in Rome and how they believe they have a relatively representative sample, but they really cannot know this. 

In any case, consider the cremation issue. First, this may in part explain why they had so few Iron/Age Republics samples.  Second, and perhaps more importantly, it raises issues of representation later on as well. Were certain classes of Roman society more likely to cremate vs. inhume in any given period?  One finding of the paper was that the dominant ethnotype of the Iron Age/Republic samples – the more “West Mediterranean” type – was grossly under-represented in the Imperial samples. Was that because of a demographic displacement/replacement so significant as to be mirrored in the sample representation?  Or is at least part of the explanation that during the Imperial period most of the old Roman stock cremated their dead, while newcomers were more likely to inhume?

Sample sizes and assumptions about how representative the samples are – these are the two biggest weaknesses of the study. There’s nothing the authors can do about what the Romans did for their funerary practices but, as stated, they should have mentioned this, explicitly, in the main text of the paper. One can hope for more studies on other samples, if such are available.

With respect to “movement” heavy breathing, these issues can cut in both directions. Der Movement may wish to claim that all the Dolph Lundgrens in a toga were cremated and thus not analyzed; a counter-argument could be that the old Roman upper classes were all Julius Evolas in a toga, and that these are under-represented in the Iron Age/Republic because of cremation.  

Ancient Rome has become an excavation site known for its rather extravagant cemeteries. All in all, the commoners and wealthy families of Rome were buried in the same cemeteries; the wealthy, however, had more elaborate tombs. The tombs of the wealthy were typically cut out of bedrock and rectangular in shape. 

Any way of correlating the remains studied to social status?  According to the authors, no.

A Medicist critique of the paper by Crimson Guard:

They do not use any ancient samples aside from the Italian ones, but instead choose to use modern non Europeans Middle Eastern peoples as if these people have never underwent change,lol.  A minority of the Imperial samples group around Cypriots and where Ashkenazi/Sephardic Jews would often cluster around. Such Jews are mixed with European (primarily Roman era Italians and Greeks). It also does not take into account that certain Mediterranean populations like Druze and Turks tend to be closer to Southern Europeans due to a Neolithic and Bronze/Iron Age connection(including Sea People/Philistines) along with West to East migrations, here they interpret everything based on historical movements where its basically one way admixtures. They try to connect African to mean Sub-Saharan and Phoenicians with Sub-Saharan Africans and do the same with the North-African Ibero-Maurasian(which somehow also means or includes Neolithic Moroccans to them)  – meanwhile the R475 sample Etruscan is no where near North Africa let alone  Sub-Saharans Yoruba.  R80 and R132 are much more closer to Cypriots than to North Africans.

They also claim that I-M253 haplogroup arose in Northern Europe meanwhile early examples were found among  Linear Ware samples from Hungary.  LBK   had affinities to modern-day populations from the Near East and Anatolia. Steppe peoples were not Western Hunter Gathers either and they were not “European either.

These criticism are mostly correct.  And the inclusion of Basques in the Central/Northern Europe cluster is not only mindboggedly stupid, but is made to look nonsensical by the PCAs they included in their own paper. The haplotype sharing data became skewed by these bizarre and subjective decisions, never mind the labels they gave to various genetic ancestry components.

I’m sure the Nordicists will have different complaints and/or wildly alternative explanations.  I have repeatedly said that it is difficult to separate politics from population genetics. And if you believe that population geneticists themselves are free of political bias when it comes to their science, then you are painfully naïve.

However, there is much useful information in the paper, so we need to sift through the trash to find the isolated useful nuggets.


From the paper’s supplementary section (emphasis added):

…highlighting the substantial influence of this “eastern” influence on the genetic makeup of central Italians in Iron Age. Furthermore, the influence of this “eastern” ancestry is not limited to R437 and R850, as R1016 and R1015 can also be modeled as RMPR_CA + Anatolia_IA.SG, and R1016 (but not R1015) as RMPR_CA + Armenia_LBA

Thus, the Iron Age/Republic samples, at least some of them, seem more “Mediterranean” than those from the preceding Copper Age.  This is not consistent with “movement” dogma, despite whatever “spin” they would like to give.

Further, the higher WHG-related ancestry in some Iron Age/Republic samples are most likely due to derivation from the Copper Age situation in which higher WHG ancestry came into play, possibly through admixture with Neolithic populations with greater WHG percentages.  Based on the PCA data, those would seem most likely to be of the Ibero-Basque West Mediterranean type.

HBD fraud on display.

Yet another of the pitiful juvenile retards that Greg Johnson is dredging out of the Alt Right sewer to “write” for Counter-Currents.  The kids are alright!  Or Alt Right? 

We’re thin, fit, handsome, with strong jaw lines and good haircuts…We dominated them not only physically with our high testosterone voices….

Brandon/Brendan is getting ready to flirt.

Where does Johnson find these people?  Does he advertise? Wanted: Immature Millennial numbnuts to write for “traditionalist” ethnonationalist webzine. Triple digit IQ not required.

In all seriousness, it is good that these “Groypers” are challenging the false conservatives (that includes Trump himself by the way, that “sincere man of genuine greatness”), but the “kids” need to grow up.

Der Alt Right marches on:

Jane Dough 

Oh good. Another article telling the alt-Right to man up. We need more of those.

Gregory, please let us know the date and location for your IRL counter-insurgency, I’ll mark it on my calendar and try to attend.

What’s that, Gregory? Your job is to inspire others to man the barricades?

Oh. Okay.

txjon18  Jane Dough 

Conte is a dunce. Skipping to keep up with Richard Spencer, who himself has the brain of a woman. The problem with the American Alt-Right are the dumb people attempting to speak for it.

Russell McGinnis 

Oh, Good God, who keeps posting the whining and wailing of the Charlottesville drama queens?

They’re gonna continue to have for sure *plenty* to kick, whine, wail and shout about as they get bent over by the opposition…

…they are now Palestinians and have been for some time.

This author is “lazy and weak” because neither he nor his comrades will be caught dead actually taking the time to model the problem and design an actual material response that doesn’t involved whining, histrionics and 40 year jail terms.

Videogames have destroyed an entire generation

Putting aside the Beavis-and-Butthead aspects of the podcast, and whatever ideological criticisms I have – they are essentially (whether they admit it  or not) pathetic pro-minority Christian civil nationalists – the criticisms they make of Spencer and the Alt Right are on point. Unfortunately, these idiots are just as bad as what they criticize.  

Great Christians there who say “go fuck yourself” to anyone who disagrees with them.  Yes, you idiots, I don’t believe in “god” ‘– “god is the truth.”  I will quote Pontius Pilate – “what is truth?”  Cue these idiots telling me to “go fuck yourself.”  Very “godly” that! Godly!  Christian!  The mocking and ridicule of Richard Spencer – Godly! Christian!  I dislike Christians not only for ideological reasons but because of their consistent personal hypocrisy.  In my life I have known many people who called themselves “Christian” but in fact I have never known a single authentic Christian – someone who walks the walk and not just talks the talk.  Nietzsche was right – there was only one Christian and he died on the cross.  On second thought, St. Francis was also a genuine Christian – so here is a role model for all the Christnats to emulate.

And so one night, before bed, I decided to try it. I knelt down, next to my futon, adjusting my bare knees on the hard floor. I put my hands together, did one last eye-roll, cleared my throat, and commenced speaking to God.

It wasn’t a long conversation. But I did notice a certain calm come over me as I whispered in the dark. Also, it clarified in my mind what was really important in my life at that moment. That I stay sober. That I support my family and friends. That I be a good person to whatever degree I could.

I felt a sense of completion and satisfaction when I was done. Who, specifically, I was talking to when I did this, I could not determine then, and have never bothered to figure out since. My “God” is neither an old man on a cloud or the supernatural father of Jesus. He remains the same formless presence that appeared across from me that first night.

But if I actually stop and think about it, I would have to admit that this invisible entity definitely feels more male than female. To me, God is like a wise older man . . . a father, or a coach. But he isn’t always older. At times he’s like a close friend, a person who knows me better than I know myself, and whose perspective is larger than my own. In that sense, my personal God probably is male. To be totally honest, I cannot picture God as a female.

This is the guy cruising around Eastern Europe looking for native women to lay.  Apparently God – in the guise of Roissy and Roosh – was advising him on that. Note as well we’re apparently dealing with another Alt Right drunk.

The worst writer in the history of the Far Right strikes again.

Why would a handsome Prince of the Realm be dating Gavin Newsom’s 50-year-old sloppy seconds? Kim Guilfoyle is a year older than Melania Trump, and unlike the First Lady, does not carry the Balkan genes which have made Barron Trump a giant among men…

Cue Greg Johnson sweatily comparing the height of Barron Trump to that of Tom Cruise. Perhaps he can borrow some really big calipers from Durocher to accomplish the task.

But assuming you’ve got no time, patience, or energy for more than one Jeelvyan irascible philippic per day, the operative concept is the following: In order to shore up their relevance, Alt Lite, center-Right, and centrist types have to constantly proclaim victory after victory and loudly trumpet the size and scope of their following.

Sounds like Der Movement, no?  But then….

The deeper, Dissident Right doesn’t need to be massive…

That’s good, since the influence of the “Dissident Right” can be measured in microns.

…or even win all that often…

Good to see they are sufficiently self-aware there.

…in order to be relevant…

Which they’re not.

…our legitimacy…

Is non-existent.

…is derived from our allegiance to the truth. 

Hah!

We do not have to signal our high status…

There’s nothing to signal.

…it is self-evident from our quest for the answers to the really tough questions. 

Tough question – how to squeeze more “D’Nations” from all them suckers?

This makes us robust…

As a mouse.

…even a little bit antifragile to failure.

Good to hear it, or else they’d be falling apart several times per day.

I’ve noticed that whenever there is a Jew-Gentile conflict in the United States, there is often a Yankee vs. Jew situation in play…This also applies in the in the Demjanjuk case. Of course, Demjanjuk’s ancestors weren’t on the Mayflower or Arbella, he was most certainly not a Unitarian Universalist or Congregationalist, and he’d probably never heard of Cotton Mather. However, put his son and son-in-law (both shown in the film) in a blue Union Army uniform and they wouldn’t look out of place in Mr. Lincoln’s Army.

I mean, this is incredibly, outrageously retarded even for Counter-Currents. This idiotic author inserts a completely superfluous aside about “Yankee vs. Jew situation” conflict – which hasn’t existed for decades, quite the opposite according to Lind’s “American Tribes” paradigm – in an essay about the Demjanjuk case, and then tries to justify using a Ukrainian to illustrate the “Yankee vs. Jew situation” with “…put his son and son-in-law (both shown in the film) in a blue Union Army uniform and they wouldn’t look out of place in Mr. Lincoln’s Army.”  If I actually tried to mock and ridicule Counter-Currents by attempting to invent some sort of absurdity one would expect from the site as it is exists today, I couldn’t be able to come up with anything so ludicrous. Congratulations for hitting a new low.

It is amazing that even after the embarrassing collapse of the Alt Right, the complete exposure of WN 2.0 as a pitifully pathetic empty shell, and the humiliations of Trump’s endless betrayals, the Beavis-and-Butthead crowd are still pushing the Pepe nonsense.

But, but, but…He’s a sincere man of genuine greatness, and don’t you forget it!  Also, send in those “D”Nations” to Counter-Currents.  After all, those who give live in the golden age today!


And what if someone’s entire “activist” history is one long “faux pas?”  Any accountability?


Hey! If affirmative action is still banned in Washington state, then why do we have “movement leaders” living there?


A book for Der Movement.


Fisking Zman:

One of the curious things about conservatism, as in Buckley-style conservatism, is that it never examined its failures. Even today, when asked about why they were unable to muster a defense against the homosexualization of the culture, a guy like Charlie Kirk is poleaxed by the question. He’s standing in front of a sign that reads “culture war” alongside a homosexual and he is baffled about the question. Even the more thoughtful and honest among conservatives have a huge blind spot for their past.

One of the curious things about Der Movement, as in the Alt Right, is that it never examined its failures. Even today, when asked about why they were unable to muster a defense against the homosexualization of the “movement,” activists are poleaxed by the question. They talk about “traditionalism” alongside homosexuals and are baffled about the question. Even the more thoughtful and honest among Alt Righters have a huge blind spot for their past.

Back to Zman:

Conservatives never stop to think that maybe California is what the ruling class wants for all of North America. After all, the people running those tech giants are living great lives. In fact, they live lives no mortals have experienced in the history of man, so from their perspective, the system works. It’s not just the plutocrats at the top. All the way down the line, the managerial elite is now living as aristocrats. Sure, there is rot down toward the bottom, but that’s true of all ruling elites.

Rewritten:

Rank-and-file activists never stop to think that maybe Der Movement is what the ruling class wants for all of racial activism. After all, the people running those blogs and organizations are living great lives. From their perspective, the system works. It’s not just the “rock stars” at the top. All the way down the line, the Quota Queens are now living as racial aristocrats. Sure, there is rot between the ears, but that’s true of all “movement” elites.

Back to Zman:

The United States was never a nation in the tradition sense. It was always a federation of nations. The structure the Founders created was an explicit acknowledgement of it. The regional difference in the colonies at the time of the founding were not superficial. Those regional differences are still with us today, despite the migrant wave unleashed on many parts by the ruling class. America was always a house with many mansions.

These guys extend their ethnonationalism to the concept of America itself.  There is nothing they don’t try to divide. Ever notice that all these types are supporters of HBD?

Scandza Fiasco

Surprise! 

Greg Johnson arrested in Norway, re: the Scandza conference. Despite my differences with Greg Johnson, obviously I oppose this and denounce it in the strongest terms possible. I do not want my ideological opponents silenced and censored; instead I want to engage them (something Johnson should consider with respect to his “banning” of people from his blog – what goes around comes around, I suppose).

The optimal thing from my perspective would be for Johnson to speak and for the transcript of the talk to be published at Counter-Currents, after which I can perform a thorough fisking of it.  One hopes that Johnson will publish the text of what he was going to say when he gets back. Since the conference was, I believe, promoting the anti-White, pro-Jewish, treasonous, yellow supremacist HBD cult, no doubt there would be plenty to criticize. Again, even though I consider the conference to have been a genocidal attack against White interests, we should respect free speech and let the yellow supremacists speak. Let them expose themselves, after which they can be criticized.

Thus, the action of the Norwegian authorities is despicable, and EGI Notes supports, 100%, Johnson’s right to attend and speak at Scandza, despite that I expect I would disagree with what he would say.  But that’s what free speech is all about, and if EGI Notes supports free speech, it has to be for everyone…even Johnson.

Perhaps at this point Johnson will realize that I (and Hood) are correct and that metapolitics without politics is a dead end.  Let us assume for the moment (and I know that this is a stretch) that Johnson’s speech would have been unvarnished truth, something of the highest utility.  It doesn’t matter. The System in Norway has the monopoly of force and there is no one there, no real opposition with any political power whatsoever, who is able to effectively intervene on his behalf.

Metapolitics and politics must be synergistic.  You have to have both. The metapolitics assists in the success in the political realm, and success in the political realm creates the environment in which metapolitical work can be more effective. The cycle has to begin at some point however, and gibbering about Yogi Bear and the Men Who Can’t Tell Time is not the way to do it.

What would be a better way?

At the moment, we are therefore looking at the possibility of taking legal action against Filter Nyheter.

Actually, that is something I would actually support all you guys giving “D’Nations” for – the only thing in fact.  That is at least practical political action, politics in its broadest sense as activity in relation to power.  Filter Nyheter engaged in politics in getting Johnson barred from the conference, arrested, and presumably deported.  Johnson should therefore engage in politics in taking action against Filter Nyheter.  That’s politics.  If Filter Nyheter merely criticized Johnson’s views, and, for example, challenged him to a debate, that would be metapolitics; on the other hand, utilizing the power of the state to silence Johnson is politics.  A response of legal action would also be politics.  Truth and facts are insufficient if the other side is willing, and able, to use force to silence that truth and censor those facts.

See this.

Scandza triple vets its attendees…

1. Are you Nordic?

2. Are you Swedish?

3. Are you Northwest European?

Extra bonus question: Can you fog a mirror held up to your nose?

Seriously though, something is wrong there.  The “triple vetting” is a failure or you got a mole or Antifa is so entrenched in society that they have the venue or other third party actors tipping them off.  The first two probabilities are more likely.

…to ensure that the venue is kept confidential but both in Copenhagen and in Oslo, the word appears to have got out.

You think?

As I have recently written, there is a time-honored method for identifying leaks.  It’s no secret. There’s a Wikipedia page on the method.  I’m sure all you big-brained societal consensus guys can figure it out. Unless some of those guys themselves are also infiltrators – how high up is the rot?  Start reading or watching (the miniseries not the move) Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy.  Either the “triple vetting” is majestically flawed or you got a mole, guys. Or both.

SINCERITY.net
I did not feel safe to enter the Copenhagen Scandza meeting. I could have gotten a police escort to get in. I was, though, concerned about how to get back out of the conference, and about being recognized, photographed, and targeted. Antifa is known to beat up people on their way back home, on railway stations etc. I lost time and expenses of a 3 day trip to Copenhagen, plus conference fees, without joining. I can imagine that Oslo could become worse.
It is shocking that Antifa is organized enough to get their spies among the highly vetted people and arrive in force before the actually invited people can make it. In spite of precautions like secret service spy meeting, with several intermediate stops and last moment further email messages.
If there are reports and videos out from last meeting, please send me the info here. We are also mirroring Colin Flaherty videos to vk DOT com/colinflaherty and to bitchute. We hope Scandza also will not put all their stakes into youtube.

Note: “It is shocking that Antifa is organized enough to get their spies among the highly vetted people and arrive in force before the actually invited people can make it.”

Note how the Left infiltrates the Far Right with ease…the “extreme triple vetting” means nothing – it is as if there is no vetting at all. This tells me that A) the vetting is flawed (from the analog and/or digital perspective) and/or B) the infiltration goes way up the ladder, perhaps including people doing the vetting and organizing. There are leaks somewhere, there is an error in the operational security somewhere.  I would suggest that dealing with this is the first priority.  Also note that the Right is not only helpless in preventing its own infiltration, but is helpless when it comes to infiltrating the Left (a seeming impossibility for the Right to achieve).  Further note that Frodi’s assurances that the Copenhagen fiasco was a special case because a Danish political figure was invited, and that we should not assume Antifa would show the same interest elsewhere, seems to be, not surprisingly, completely wrong.

Accountability?  Or are we so used to these guys being wrong all the time – always, always wrong, about virtually everything – that we just give it a pass?

A Brief Riposte to Johnson

Joan of Arc, Joan of Arc, my hobbit hole for a Joan of Arc!

Greg Johnson

Posted October 26, 2019 at 5:49 am | Permalink

The entire female sex is indicted because some women send love letters to serial killers.

The entire male sex is somehow not indicted because of the serial killers, however.

There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper. – Camile Paglia

I don’t know, Greg, for every male serial killer imprisoned – obviously a defect condemned by society – there are dozens (hundreds?) of “normal” women sending him love letters.  And we are still waiting for the female Mozart to compensate.

Any rational person understands the difference between the very rare phenomenon of isolated murderous male psychopaths and the much larger numbers of “normal” women – people we interact with on a daily basis, I’m sure – obsessively infatuated with those defective killers. Johnson is (as usual) just being an obtuse jackass here.

By the way, this is directly relevant to the issue at hand, because if women become involved in racial activism because of their schoolgirl infatuation with some Alt Right Beavis or Butthead “bad boy,” instead of having a deep ideological commitment, she’s more likely to turn apostate and do real damage.

I would have responded to you directly on your (pitifully regressing) blog, but I’m “banned” there, don’t you know.

Justice for the Embittered

Fisking Johnson.

Laugh at this, emphasis added:

First, what does it even mean to ban women from a largely anonymous online movement, which lacks any barriers to entry or standards of membership?

Sound like the “extreme vetting” at a Counter-Currents meeting. Isn’t that part of the problem Greg?  That there are no “barriers to entry or standards of membership?” Shouldn’t those things exist, and be based on merit and behavior and not on an affirmative action program or the mirror test (if someone can fog a mirror held up to their nose, they’re in)?

We can’t ban women from the internet.

Too bad, huh?

We can’t ban women from reading our websites, listening to our podcasts, watching our YouTube videos, etc. We can’t ban women from writing for our websites…

Actually you could ban known women from writing, which you choose not to do.

…commenting on our websites, or donating to them if they simply use pen names. (For all I know, the person who sent in the question is a woman.)

Well, we certainly don’t want to decrease potential “D,Nations” now, do we?

Of course some parts of the movement can exclude women. I don’t think we should accept the essentially feminist assumption that all organizations and realms of society should admit women, much less aim for male/female parity. I also think that it is quite natural for radical politics to attract more men than women. And just as combat units and police forces function better without women, so might some White Nationalist political organizations.

Uh, yes.

But even if it were possible to entirely exclude women from White Nationalist politics, doing so would be dumb and self-defeating.

Because Greg, with much personal experience in dealing with women, says so. The defenders of women need to answer certain questions.  Why do men who are serial killers, mass murderers, men who kill their families, when in prison, get inundated with love letters – often containing photos of the nude or scantily-clad nubile women who wrote the letters – and pleading offers of marriage?  Why do men with a criminal record have more female sexual partners than law-abiding men?  A sex hard-wired for crazed sociopathy is not the best material for a “movement” desperate for an increase in personal quality.  Think about it.

If women want to contribute their money, ideas, time, and social capital to the movement, that makes us stronger, not weaker. Beyond that, we are never going to actually win unless we can convince a substantial percentage of the female population that we represent their real interests. And we will never do that if we allow the tone of the movement to be set by embittered misogynists, to say nothing of people who proclaim “White Sharia” and “Islam is Right About Women.”

Yeah, Greg, those memes – that I agree are stupid – are promoted by people who you enthusiastically declared as “the new voices of WN 3.0.”  What does that say about your judgment – or absolute lack thereof?

Leftists love to dismiss realism about racial differences as racial hatred. But that’s not necessarily true. Feminists love to dismiss realism about sexual differences as misogyny, the hatred of women. But that’s not necessarily true either.

Yes, see above.  Women: A sociopathic sex that rewards the worst among men with the most sexual access.

However, just as there really are people in our movement who hate other races, there are people in our movement who genuinely hate women.

Just as the goal of our movement should be to drain the swamp of diversity in which race-hate breeds, we should also try to address the underlying causes of hatred between the sexes.

And just as we will not achieve our goal in the racial sphere if we allow simple race hatred to define our movement, we will not achieve our goals in the sexual sphere by allowing misogynists to set the tone either.

Are the “goals in the sexual sphere” set by O’Meara and Brendon/Brandon?

White Nationalists are mature enough to recognize that hatred between the races and sexes is the inevitable product of the current system. We also need to be mature enough to recognize that indulging embittered haters will destroy any chance to rectify our problems.

Crazy and bitter!  Johnson’s own obsessive hatred of Richard Spencer, is of course, not based on any bitter personal animus but just plain good sense!  Criticize Johnson though and you are just plain nuts!

Second, talking about excluding all women because of doxers like Katie McHugh makes no sense. Should the movement also exclude all men, because some men are doxers as well? That would put an end to 100% of doxings, but it would also put an end to the movement itself.

And we can’t have that.

Surely we can be a bit more surgical about excluding certain types of people to minimize such problems in the future.

Yes, Greg: Hermansson, Lewis, Brandon/Brendan, Pilleater, most of the people you currently have writing for your blog…

Third, the very same people who want to blame women for problems in the movement also often deny that women exercise any moral agency. But if women have no agency, then they bear no responsibility either. But clearly somebody is to blame for these operational security and public relations disasters, and by their own logic, misogynists would have to blame men.

Yes, exactly, we blame men like Johnson who allowed all sorts of tragicomic lapses in operational security.  We blame Steadman as well.

And in truth, men bear a lot of the blame.

Indeed.

By all accounts, McHugh, Samantha, and another unnamed woman who doxed Coach Finstock were not ordinary women. They were Alt-Right scene groupies. Like rock groupies, they were attracted to an overwhelmingly misogynistic subculture. Women who are drawn to such environments are surely high in masochism and low in self-worth. They then worked their way through the scene, passing over nice guys until they ended up with manipulative sociopaths.

Please Greg tell us – which “movement leader” is not a manipulative sociopath?

But when they realized that masochistic self-indulgence was not making them happy, they bailed out.

Then, once they had become sufficiently embittered to feel justified in harming innocent people, they went to the enemy and started doxing people, including people who had only been kind to them. This is the sort of pure evil that makes people dream of the eternal fires of hell to restore justice to the world.

Oh, yes, and some of us dream of such fires to restore justice to racial activism.  Feeling warm yet Greg?

What makes such evil possible? I think a good part of it can be explained by bitterness. Bitterness takes root when someone is wronged and does not receive justice.

Hmm…then Sallis was wronged and did not receive justice.  Good of you to admit it Greg.

Bitterness turns into a kind of neurosis. Embittered people vent their wrath not on the people who wronged them, but on people who didn’t wrong them but merely remind them of the people who did.

Absolute self-serving bullshit.

And if such people have any pangs of conscience, bitterness easily silences them: “Why should I care about these people’s suffering? Where were they when I was suffering? Who cared about me?”

Nonsense.

So how do we lessen the likelihood of such disasters in the future?

First, we really need to dispel the atmosphere of misogyny in the movement, which attracts damaged people of both sexes. Race realism–yes. Race hate–no. Sex realism–yes. Hatred between the sexes–no. Our movement will never win unless we treat such hatreds as social problems to be solved. And we cannot credibly promise to solve them in society as a whole if we allow them to run rampant in our own ranks.

But, hey, Anglin is one of the new voices of WN 3.0, and don’t you forget it!  Johnson is a buffoon.

Also: Hatred against White ethnics is A-OK.

Second, we need to exclude groupies. But we also need to exclude the kinds of sociopathic males they gravitate toward.

You mean like Jeelvy, you hypocrite?

…I am a bad worker. I am often late for work, and when I do arrive, I arrive with the insomniac’s world-contemptuous scowl overlaid against a stubbled jowl. I resolve office politics with threats of violence, and I’ve been known to disappear for hours on end, only to return in a state of mild inebriation. I write monograph-length critiques of TV shows from ten years ago during office hours… my successes are due more to innate charisma and an ability to charm people into forgiving my worst offenses rather than effort or passion. You have to be either crazy or my mother to hire me – in fact, the latter is my employer.

If we stand for the restoration of Western civilization, then we stand for monogamy not polygamy. We stand for fidelity, not adultery. We stand for healthy relationships, not pathological ones. Which means that playboys, sluts, adulterers, and abusers are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Ho ho!  Is that why your response to Pilleater’s complaints was to chuckle about how if Brandon/Brendan thinks some hapless male meeting attendee is “cute,” he’s just going to “flirt” with them?

If someone you know is playing the field, using and discarding movement groupies, he is playing with fire. He is putting his own short-term gratification ahead of the health of our cause. That’s a problem, and you need to say something.

Say something…like Pilleater did.

Third, we need to drain the swamp where bitterness and wrath breed. We have to do something when people in our movement wrong one another. We need to have some sympathy for victims of injustice, even for victims who are not entirely innocent. And the best form of sympathy is to give them justice, which means there have to be punishments for wrongdoers.

So, Greg, when will you resign from the “movement?”

People who dox others are evil and deserve no sympathy today. But if they had received sympathy and justice when they were wronged, things may have worked out differently, and we would all be better off.

The Alt Right in America crashed and burned because it was run by a mafia of drunkards, druggies, sociopaths, and buffoons, as well as swarms of remora-like fanboys, sycophants, and enablers.

Greg, don’t be so hard on yourself.

I fear that we are going to be hearing a lot more such stories from Samantha and people like her for years to come. But the movement for white survival will not falter as long as we treat such disasters as opportunities to learn rather than excuses to quit.

This comically self-unaware post indicates that Greg hasn’t learned yet.

Speaking of women, let us listen to that philosopher Lee Priest.

The HBD-Nordicist-Ethnonationalist alliance, manipulated behind the scenes by Jews, continues onward, as I predicted.

More of an ethnoimperialist invading the nation of another people, demanding sexual access to their women.

Jews promote alien immigration into Italy, just as do dreadlocked German whores, Norwegians, and Richard Gere.  The only thing Lind got wrong with his analysis of “American Tribes” is that he limited it to the USA.  The Nord-Jew-Colored Alliance is international.

While the disgusting “human being” Trump celebrates putting Black criminals back on the streets, Proud Boys members are being sent to prison for self-defense, and the Trump DOJ persecutes the Rise Above Movement.  But he’s a sincere man of greatness, and don’t you forget it!

Victory is inevitable, right Greg?
