A Telling Quote

It explains much.

From the novel Majestrum by Matthew Hughes:

A lifelong habit of being right also had the effect of diminishing one’s social appeal, especially among those who prefer to keep the bubble of their various illusions a safe distance from a needle-sharp and probing intelligence.

There probably is not another sentence in the history of literature that more accurately reflects the true underlying reasons for the hostility of “movement leaders” for the “crazy and bitter” Ted Sallis.

And the whole interplay is amplified by the “rage of a privileged class” effect of affirmative action beneficiaries smashing up against the wall of the Peter Principle, and taking out their frustrations on those who have more ability but who are not part of the quota set.

It’s unfortunate that such attitudes stand in the way of pro-White interests, and of properly utilizing the available human material to advance those interests, but it is what it is.

Movement Good Old Boy Mafia

One of the boys.

Notice the mention, and link to, Greg Johnson at Counter-Currents.  I am sure readers of EGI Notes can think of certain blogs dealing with race, science, immigration, politics, etc. that go unmentioned by Der Movement, Inc.  Now, you may argue, goodwhite Derbyshire can hardly be expected to link to blogs or blog writers who have been sharply critical of him.  It’s only natural.

That’s some low information moralizing, friends.  The following are some of Johnson’s characterizations of Derbyshire made at the Counter-Currents blog (emphasis added):

Derbyshire, by the way, is not a White Nationalist at all. He is a conservative cognitive elitist who is married to a Chinese woman and has two non-white children. Beyond that, he has attacked White Nationalists in the most scurrilous terms, referring to AmRen attendees as “latrine flies” and attacking Kevin MacDonald on the most swinish possible grounds. It is only when this sucking up to Jews and centrists failed to save him from the charges of racism that he began to associate with White Nationalists, who were all too willing to cross his palm with silver. Frankly it is disgusting that the donations of White Nationalists are being sluiced into the pockets of this opportunist.

2. RE Derbyshire. Yes, every dog should get one bite. But Derbyshire has been at it long enough to show his agenda. Of course, Derbyshire has “grown” a bit in recent years. At one time, he referred to Am Ren attendees as “latrine flies.” But he changed his tune after Jared Taylor crossed his palm with silver. He’s a fox in the henhouse, eating the lunches of genuine pro-whites.

I first learned of Derbyshire when he penned his critique of Kevin MacDonald and his defense of the craven philosemitism of National Review. That was all I needed to know. He is a loathsome individual, and I avoid his work completely.

You were saying?

Now, in actuality, I agree with Johnson that Derbyshire is a “loathsome individual” and I would go further and say VDARE is a loathsome blog.  They have an agenda that is not compatible with pan-European racial nationalism and therefore their behavior is to be expected.  However, the point is not that the Alt Wrong should be citing the genuine Far Right, the point is simply to demonstrate that there really is a “one of the boys” network – a “mafia” if you will – within the “movement” in which affirmative action recipients, despite harsh attacks against one another, will still consider each other “one of the boys” while those outside the quota system are not.  As Der Movement (hypocritically) likes to say about affirmative action when it is used by the System to favor Negroes and other Coloreds – affirmative action is corrosive of merit, of accomplishment, of quality. Endless decades of “movement” failure are thus explained.  That is the point.

Larson and Counter-Currents

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

Read there.  Excerpts, emphasis added;

Among the candidates running against incumbent Rep. Barbara Comstock in Virginia’s Tenth Congressional District is a self-described pedophile who has allegedly admitted he raped his late spouse and advocates what he calls “benevolent white supremacy.” 

After all, this is exactly the kind of press, and public representation, Der Movement needs.  If you in any way question that, you’re obviously “crazy and bitter.”

HuffPost reports that Larson used “Leucosticte” and “Lysander” as user names to post in the chat rooms, where he endorsed child rape and sexual abuse. He reportedly wrote one essay about father-daughter incest and another about raping his ex-wife repeatedly and was asked by HuffPost whether there was a “grain of truth” in the essays. He said there was, and suggested that it’s not uncommon for women to have rape fantasies. 

It is uncommon to write about it and then run for Congress.

Here are some of the agenda items in his lengthy campaign manifesto:

Legalize the possession and distribution of child pornography;

I suppose a certain English (ex) illegal alien will be jumping on the Larson bandwagon.  All aboard!

End minimum age for consumption of alcohol;

That’s the Beavis-and-Butthead Alt Right plank of the manifesto.

Repeal Violence Against Women Act. “We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands,” Larson writes; 

I won’t argue too much against that.

Legalize early marriage

How early?

Legalizing suicide. “Legalizing barbiturates, heavy machine guns, etc. makes available reliable and peaceful means of suicide for those who need them,” his manifesto reads;

If he wants to thin the herd, he can start with Der Movement.

Favors right to discriminate;

OK.

Legalize insider trading;

The Jewish plank of the manifesto?

Puts forward the idea that Jewish state should be in “more defensible location,” like the state of New Jersey;

That’s great.  Let’s move Israel to New Wopsey. Fuggedaboutit!

End laws that ban felons from owning firearms.

Self-interest?

Larson’s manifesto also reveres Adolf Hitler as a “white supremacist hero,” as well as Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism.

Did I need to tell you this is a Type I?

On a related issue.

A realistic assessment of our situation is that we simply do not have a ready collective of prepared people who are ready for prime time. We don’t have a network of disciplined organizations full of large numbers of people who are ready and able to effectively present our message to the American public, or take effective, focused action.
Are we working on it? Absolutely.

Absolutely!  After all, Revilo Oliver talked about 50 years of “movement” failure – 50 years ago.  Maybe in another 100 years all the quota queens will have figured it all out, and they can proceed to save both of the White people still existing at that time.

Are we making great strides? Most definitely. Do we have promising candidates? For sure. American Renaissance is an utterly invaluable resource.

Invaluable if you are Jewish or East Asian.

But it is also definitely true that we just aren’t there yet. We’re building it. And do you know what it looks like to build effective organization? It means sorting the wheat from the chaff so we can create something that is all wheat and no chaff—and that means criticizing the chaff so that it can get out of the way and make room for the wheat.

Yes, that’s why I criticize Der Movement in general and Counter-Currents in particular. All the chaff have glass jaws though, good at “punching right” but not at taking a punch.

Notwithstanding the fact that what we stand for are principles that vast numbers of people do (and should) consider common sense, we are a fringe political movement. And fringe political movements attract weirdos no matter what their political position.

A point I’ve made online for, literally, years.

Online movements attract people who have extra time on their hands and choose to spend it reading on the Internet. To make it into our niche in particular, we had to be curious and intelligent enough to read and comprehend essays on things like human biodiversity…

Let’s read and comprehend pseudoscience, that’s the ticket.  We’ll look at the Pyramids of Atlantis next.

…—but not so curious and intelligent that we’d already made a career in academia, where acknowledging these findings would risk ruining everything we’d built. 

Kevin MacDonald.  Frank Salter.  Those are academics. How much support does Salter get from Der Movement?

The situation we are in is intrinsically, inherently paradoxical. To succeed by “democratic” means, we need to reach ordinary people; but we are, by definition, weirdos.

Yes, and let us make ourselves more weird by rambling about “the spectral,” “Kali Yuga,” “the men who can’t tell time,” and other such nonsense.

Furthermore, “public leadership” is a position which is doubly attractive to the worst of peoples’ personality traits. People with families and children whose well-being they care about are inherently less likely to do it, but the more narcissistic a person is, the more likely they will.

Again, I’ve written about this over and over again.  The social pricing problem needs to be solved.  The incompetent affirmative action “movement leadership” are not the ones to do it though.

For a movement whose ideals are built on hierarchy and the elevation of “greatness” as a moral value of central importance, this reluctance to make high demands of those we call “leaders” is especially ironic.

Yes, indeed. And what website are you writing this for?

And for a movement so focused on mocking the modern world’s obsession with “inclusivity” and how this causes everything from the military to firefighting departments and educational faculties to constantly lower their standards regarding actual performance and success, we sure do seem to be demanding a heavy share of standard-lowering “inclusivity” of our own.

Yes, indeed. And what website are you writing this for?

If anything, what we really need is to be a whole hell of a lot more exclusive.

Exclude Counter-Currents.

In Der News

More omissions, disappointments, and stupidities.

Nowhere in this rambling essay is the suggestion that part of Derbyshire’s problem with KMacD’s thesis is the whole idea of group evolutionary interests, racial competition, and evaluating such competition in tribal terms, rather than “high IQ cognitive elitism” and other tropes of HBD political activism.  In the end, KMacD’s original theories puts into jeopardy the acceptance of the Derbyshire kids by White America, and we certainly can’t have that, eh Johnny?

Perhaps Steadman can blow on his Viking horn and make the walls of Turner’s prison crumble, analogous to Joshua’s army blowing on trumpets at Jericho.

Truer words never said: Sessions is absolutely worthless.  “America’s Senator” – not quite a Man on White Horse, but a Man on White Pony Syndrome candidate.  His entire tenure as Attorney General can be summed up by the image of him standing around helplessly with a dumbfounded look on his face.

Trumps seems to be cucking to the Colored Man once again. Mudshark Annie should be happy about this.  And Costello can cook both of them breakfast (aka cuckfast).

Donald Hypercuck

Obama wouldn’t do it, but the obese effeminate leftist Trump did.

Read here.  Trump pardons race-mixing Negro boxer Jack Johnson, who was infamous for physically abusing and marrying White women.

Read here, emphasis added:

Johnson engaged in various relationships including three documented marriages. All of his wives were white. At the height of his career, Johnson was excoriated by the press for his flashy lifestyle and for having married white women…Johnson met Etta Terry Duryea, a Brooklyn socialite and former wife of Clarence Duryea, at a car race in 1909. In 1910, Johnson hired a private investigator to follow Duryea after suspecting she was having an affair with his chauffeur. On Christmas day, Johnson confronted Duryea and beat her so badly she was hospitalized. They reconciled and were married in January 1911. Prone to depression, her condition worsened because of Johnson’s abuse and infidelity. She committed suicide in September 1912, shooting herself.

The Far Left anti-White ultracuck Trump probably fantasizes about Melania, Ivanka, and Stormy all together with Jack Johnson.

       

No doubt that homoerotic Trump fanboys like Roissy will “spin” this as a “4-D chess” attempt by Trump to appeal to the “hoteps” – after all, in classic Republicuck fashion, his White base can be safely taken for granted and ignored.  Or, perhaps, we’ll just get more gifs of Trump strutting around like Vince McMahon, breathless pontifications about Trumps’s jackass Tweets, or more delusional rambling about how the defeat of the Deep State is “happening.”

All that’s really “happening” is Trump’s lickspittle groveling to the Negro.  “Black pill?”  Trump is a walking Black Pill, and I’m glad to (once again) remind the reader that EGI Notes accurately labeled Trump a Negrophilic beta race cuck long before he was elected, in contrast to the pathetic Man on White Horse screeching coming from the cognitively deficient quota queens of Der Movement’s affirmative action “leadership.”

A Story of Disillusion and Hope

Navigating the “movement “morass.

It should be clear that although I am a racial activist, a racial nationalist, I am NOT a member of Der Movement, Inc. – actually, I am unalterably opposed to it.  Thus, I’m part of a broad movement, but not part of “the movement.”  I was at one time in Der Movement, and since both the movement and “the movement” have existential implications for all of our genetic interests, let’s have EGI Notes delve into  my journey through these activist streams.

Essentially, there have been four basic stages in my journey through the wilderness of racial activism, and this (brief) story may be useful to genuine newcomers to the scene.

First: Entry to real-world, analog activism, before the Internet age, as a naive, starry-eyed, and relatively young newcomer (albeit one with a family background of Bunkerite racial conservatism and as a person interested in the historical Far Right). So, there were meetings in the “little rooms” mentioned in this Dresden song (although some rooms were in actuality quite big, and none ended up being “sacred” – and if the spirit of Saint Adolf was there, he must have been quite disgusted), there were some good people, well-meaning people, but the usual combination of overall defectiveness and horrifically bad leadership made the entire endeavor a failure.

After experiencing grade-A freakishness, ineptitude, mind-numbing stupidity, and hypocrisy, I dropped out, and took time to think and reconsider.

Second: Introduction to digital activism and testing the leadership waters.  Thus came the Internet and the rise of online racial activism, which I was involved in from the very beginning.  Thinking that “if you want something done right, do it yourself” I decided I should play more of a leadership role.  However, knowing well the dogmas, fetishes, and affirmative action policies of Der Movement, I had skepticism whether: (1) I would be accepted in any sort of leadership role and (2) whether the “movement” was willing to ditch their dogma (to them, something actually “sacred”) and move in a new direction.  The Legion Europa project was, ultimately, simply a test, answering the questions implicit in points 1 and 2.  The answers: NO and NO.  Time to back off again, and go back to the “drawing board.”

Third: Not a leader, but a contributor. Well then I thought, at least I can contribute to the “movement’s” ideological development, promote useful ideas like Salter’s EGI, and perhaps move Der Movement in directions closer to my ideals.  This was the phase of my writing for “movement” publications and writing for “movement” blogs. Ultimately, as more recent readers of my work understand, this didn’t work out either, since the “movement” was never able, or even willing, to shed any of its underlying fundamental flaws. They don’t even accept or understand that they have any flaws, they are in fact all delusional.  One can one see this delusion, for example, when Trump publicly denounces the Alt Right, and signs a binding document pledging to devote all the resources of the federal government to oppose the Alt Right and pro-White activism in general, and this same Alt Right crows “we made the President come out and agree with our position.”  These guys are off in “la-la-land” – there’s no hope there.  Another faction of the Alt Right enables an “anti-fascist” infiltrator to joyride through their “movement” for a year, advising them on how to vet people (cue laughter) and giving talks about “anti-fascist infiltration.”  Instead of mea culpa, they instead hysterically react to criticism and “ban” people (hint: you really can’t ban someone who is not part of your clown show to begin with).

Fourth: One part bemused observer, one part critic deconstructing he “movement.” One part hopeful visionary (with no delusions of success) hoping to build a New Movement.  One does what one can.  Optimism is cowardice I suppose (thanks, Spengler).

If we accept the premise that the racial situation for Whites will continue to deteriorate, and that an untenable situation will one day be reached, there are two most likely alternative outcomes for the “movement.”

#1 – If I am wrong about Der Movement, and it goes from success to success, and carries Whites from a dangerous state to their salvation, then I’ll be quite pleased to admit I was wrong, and do what I can do assist in that salvation (given my disagreement with basic “movement” dogma, I’d probably carve out my own little “movement” niche, or associate with like-minded individuals who had already done so).

#2 – If I am right about Der Movement, then the White demand for effective leadership in the midst of the growing racial crisis will lead to the eventual emergence of leadership that will sweep the flotsam and jetsam of Der Movement from the scene.  Unfortunately, this may well be cul-de-sac leadership: reactionary military strongmen or Trump-like hardcore civic nationalist populists – both types who would just kick the can several decades down the road for when the racial crisis reemerges.  Thus, by taking up Far Right niche space, Der Movement is preventing the emergence of the sort of real leadership that can actually solve the racial crisis.

You are one of the dishonorable Orc shills that I mentioned in the podcast. Shame on you.

“Orc.”  Apparently, Johnson wrote that “snug in his hobbit hole” out in the forest, where there is “de facto anarchy,” as opposed to the “centralized authority” of the capital.  Lots of maturity there.  I suppose at some point an analysis needs to be done about this whole Lord of the Rings fetish.  Is it an ethnic/subracial thing?  Or just the Type I/Type II divide?

@CounterCurrentsTV Good to know that you and many others prioritize putting personal vendettas and petty squabbling ahead of what’s in the best interests of the movement. Let’s be honest here, because that’s what this is. Granted I’m not privy to private conversations, but from an outsider’s perspective this looks appalling on your end. And before you go ahead accusing me of being a Spencer shill as well, I’m not. There is a nuanced position to take in this whole affair, and Millennial Woes embodies that perfectly. I don’t have any particular favoritism in this scenario and I really like the both of you two. That’s the case for many people, I’m sure, which is what makes this whole situation so regrettable. Spencer isn’t going anywhere, you’re not going anywhere, Alt-Hype isn’t going anywhere, so the sooner you all come to terms with that reality and restore relations, at least to the point where you don’t dread crossing paths at conferences, the better the movement will be for it. In other words, please pluck your fucking stubborn heads from your behinds, because this is all becoming extremely distasteful.

You don’t recall, huh? Perhaps you should inform yourself before you engage in this kind of low-information moralizing.

There we go again with his favorite phrase “low-information moralizing.”  In my case, I have recently attempted to increase the information content of my moralizing by reading material on, and listening to podcasts on, all the moronic “movement” feuds, scandals, and personal problems, including, but not limited to, such wonderfully moralizing things as “ghoulish” bodypart photos, “fashy” facebook groups, whether or not “movement” celebrities are or are not Jewish, etc., and I have to say that after diving into the “movement” sewer that I prefer to be “low information” thank you very much. Some types of information can’t be unseen or unlearned.  By the way, Der Movement Inc. is so utterly and despicably disgusting that anyone involved in it has no right to cast aspersion on its critics. Clean up your own house first.

Richard has admitted that the campus speech tour approach was a mistake — but don’t forget these speeches were at one point quite successful, so it is only since Charlottesville that they became too difficult to do. He is not vainglorious, and he is the public face of the Altright. I accept Greg in the movement, as long as he knuckles down under Richard Spencer and Greg Conte.

I wonder if I am the one in this thread labelled an Orc Shill by GJ (Hail, Johnson! Hail Victory!) Look I’ve acknowledged that GJ is a good white identitarian doing a lot of good stuff – I just called for him to drop the vendetta against RS. Indeed this is part of the reason why gay leaders are inadvisable — they bring personal cattiness and bitchiness with them. GJ is demonstrating, personally, the very reason why he should not be “the leader”. As a follower, GJ, welcome aboard.

CounterCurrentsTV edited his comment. His comment, in my inbox, read initially: “You are one of the dishonorable Orc shills that I mentioned in the podcast. Shame on you: lying and shilling for that sociopath. Spencer is cancer. “Mistakes have been made” is a nice passive way of saying that Spencer has made catastrophic errors of judgment. These errors are not flukes. They spring from a deeply flawed — narcissistic, dishonest — character. The movement would be better off if Spencer simply retired. ”

Honestly? Richard Spencer is cancer? Richard Spencer is a sociopath? This is just a handbags-at-dawn camp attack.

The bottom line is: I think the movement would be stronger if Spencer simply retired. He has a track record of terrible decisions, with disastrous consequences. These are not random and accidental. They flow from his bad character. He’s vain, sociopathic, impulsive, dishonest, and self-indulgent. Furthermore, he’s not even an advocate of White Nationalism. He denigrates ethnonationalism and praises the EU and the USSR. He’s simply an incoherent shill for Russian geopolitical interests. Why does Spencer support Putin’s war against “Nazis” (genuine White Nationalists) in Ukraine, but then ruin NPI with Nazi rhetoric and Hitler salutes? If there is a coherent agenda there, it is anti-white. He’s also a terrible spokesman: rambling, inarticulate, and half-baked. Beyond that, Spencer’s one enduring achievement is that he has somehow corrupted otherwise perfectly decent people into being grotesque liars and shills, like “Disappointed Englishman.”

Let’s take a closer look at this last comment.

The bottom line is: I think the movement would be stronger if Spencer simply retired.

I agree.  However I go further and say the “movement” would be even stronger if Johnson, Taylor, Brimelow, Dickson, Duke, TRSMajority Rights, Roissy, et al. all retired as well.

He has a track record of terrible decisions, with disastrous consequences.

Like letting “extremely vetted” meetings get infiltrated multiples times by ludicrously transparent infiltrators?  Like banning people who were not only long-time commentators but also writers for your website?  By getting wholesale on the Trump train, to the extent of stating that he would enact real pro-White demographic change, but never admitting your error?

These are not random and accidental. They flow from his bad character. 

Indeed.

He’s vain, sociopathic, impulsive, dishonest, and self-indulgent.

Indeed, again.

Furthermore, he’s not even an advocate of White Nationalism.

Neither is Johnson, who is an ethnonationalist advocating the possibility of Europeans ethnically cleansing each other.

He denigrates ethnonationalism….

Which supports, and not refutes, Spencer being a White nationalist.  WN is, by definition, nationalism primarily based on race and NOT on ethnicity.

…and praises the EU and the USSR. 

I agree with Johnson’s criticisms here.

He’s simply an incoherent shill for Russian geopolitical interests. 

Perhaps.

Why does Spencer support Putin’s war against “Nazis” (genuine White Nationalists) in Ukraine, but then ruin NPI with Nazi rhetoric and Hitler salutes?

I supported the Ukraininan nationalists, but let’s be honest, they were used to advance a globalist agenda.  Perhaps Spencer was right about that.

If there is a coherent agenda there, it is anti-white. 

Oh, you can say that about the entirety of Der Movement, Inc.

He’s also a terrible spokesman: rambling, inarticulate, and half-baked. 

As opposed to?

Beyond that, Spencer’s one enduring achievement is that he has somehow corrupted otherwise perfectly decent people into being grotesque liars and shills, like “Disappointed Englishman.”

And they’re “crazy and bitter” too!

Nobody takes you seriously, orc.

The Ring!  The Ring!  De facto anarchy in the provinces!

Here are the questions alluded to above.  The primary question, and one that should have been asked of Johnson, but was not, is this:

If Richard Spencer is an incoherent, vain, sociopathic, impulsive, dishonest, and self-indulgent cancer, then how has he so quickly risen to a position of high prominence in the “movement?” 

We have to admit that he has surpassed Duke and Taylor as the most well-known Far-Right activist on the American scene, and that he has significant influence and a wide array of allies and adherents.  Doesn’t this mean that Der Movement is full of vain, impulsive, dishonest, self-indulgent sociopaths who would, naturally, accept someone embodying those traits as their leader?  You can’t have it both ways – that Spencer is such a horrible human being but at the same time the “movement” that so readily accepts him is fundamentally healthy.  Either Spencer is not that bad or Sallis is 100% correct about Der Movement, which means that your own character is suspect for your over-the-top critiques of “crazy and bitter” Ted.

Let’s ask more questions.  

If you believe that Spencer is as bad as you say, then doesn’t that mean that the “movement” in which he is a prominent leader must be broken beyond repair?  Doesn’t it mean that Sallis is correct in his characterization of Der Movement as an inept and dishonest chronic failure?  Doesn’t it mean that most American Alt Righters are feckless peabrains, easily manipulated and unable to distinguish true leadership from false?

Isn’t it true that there is an affirmative action program in the “movement” that benefits the likes of Spencer (and you as well), based on ethnic origins?

Further, what does it say about your judgment, and that of Taylor, Brimelow, Derbyshire, and the rest of “the boys” that you all were fooled by Spencer for years and you all wanted a “big tent” Alt Right including Spencer? Why should any of us trust your judgment now?
