Alt Right Aesthetics

A brisk fisking.

1. Aesthetics matter more than optics

It Doesn’t (sic) matter what you do, it matters what you look like while you do it. They hate you, no matter what. You can save an entire school bus of children from drowning in a river in a flash flood, but the second your politics are revealed they will hate you and try to discredit and destroy you. Are we clear? Yes? Good. It doesn’t actually matter what you say, hardly anyone will remember it unless it’s exceptionally profound and you are a person of note. It matters what you look like, a well kept man is immediately notable versus a disheveled bum. How you are dressed -clean, well-fitted, matched- and what your hair looks like -effort vs no effort- your footwear -appropriate shoe for the occasion- and, if in person, how you smell. These are the things that impact people and it happens in 1/10th of a second. If you can make someone like or trust you in 1/10th of a second they will second guess everything that comes after that, you can only do that visually. First impressions are forever. If in doubt, start with the footwear and move upwards.

There is some value here; it is true that many people, a large fraction of the masses, judge almost entirely by appearance, by aesthetics.  Also, even those people who pay attention to the message also are influenced by aesthetics.  So, obviously, this is all important.  But taken literally as written, point one is absolute nonsense.  Really?  No one at all will pay attention to anything you say? Really?  So Trump won the Presidency because he was better dressed than, first, Jeb and Rubio and Ted and then, later, Clinton?  The best dressed man won?  If all that matters is aesthetics than “suit-and-tie” Jared Taylor and “metrosexual” Richard Spencer would be our Senators from Virginia already.  Yes, first impressions are forever.  But if you think that a good pair of shoes can completely substitute for a compelling message than you’re dumber than the average “movement” Nutzi.

2. Not everyone is an erudite gentleman. Nor should they be.

To the untrained eye this may seem in opposition to my previous point. It is not. 

Actually it is.

Authenticity is as much a part of aesthetics as anything else. 

Which is why you wrote: 

How you are dressed -clean, well-fitted, matched- and what your hair looks like -effort vs no effort- your footwear -appropriate shoe for the occasion- and, if in person, how you smell.

Cosmopolitan dwelling fellas, you ain’t getting a country boy in a suit and tie if he isn’t getting married or burying a relative, and that is okay. Some of the issues you have with “optics” is expecting a regionally distinct nation to follow the rules of only one region; which is exactly what the liberal coastal elites have been doing for decades! Speaking of regional conflicts…

OK, so a farmer wearing dirty boots and smelling like cow manure is A-OK.  Start with dem dere footwear and move upwards.

3. The South is for Southerners

There is no rational reason to concede ground to an enemy preceding a war, unless you have an advanced strategy to counter the push. You don’t volunteer your losses ahead of the game, and you certainly don’t reveal your hand of what you find most valuable. Alienating swaths of people by volunteering their homes as tribute to the very people who swarm their neighborhoods making them unsafe and barely habitable may seem like a funny meme or a rational concession; but it isn’t and by the by, I don’t hear an alternative where you give up your homes and flee to the South. The idea of an ethnic homeland for our people is a good one, but we need to think smarter than Balkanizing the United States of America.

Alright, I see nothing wrong with this.  I previously, it is true, wrote essays favoring this sort of racial portioning, but I see the point.  If White Southerners can seize and hold territory, more power to them.  Let’s see how it all falls out.

4. Shitposting isn’t going to save the world

These ideas have to make it into the real world where people live. Even the people you have contempt for have life experiences they can relate to our ideology. Why? Because the things that you’ve noticed aren’t unique to you just because you noticed them already for what they are. Online we live in a polarized meta-reality of extremes. Fascist or Marxist. Right or left. Genocide or victory. Those extremes simply don’t exist on the typical person’s radar. There is a season for all things and now is the season to forge real life connections with real life people. The way forward is not tiki-torches and marching, it is a quiet, responsible conversation about real affairs that matter to the man or woman in the street.

So then, basically the entire Alt Right “strategy” up until this point has been wrong.

5. Stop trying to purge people!

What kind of whacked out brain-fry drug den did you just crawl out of to think that any white person to the right of center is disposable? Identify them for what they are, and then utilize whatever it is they do or can do to benefit our immediate concerns. We have other concerns than just Zionism. We have to get legislation passed or stopped. We have to spread the word of first and second amendment breaches and violations. We have to talk about immigration. We have to talk about MS-13 and other gang activity. We have to have discussions existing on the internet that we don’t have a million hours in the day to have. I personally am very critical of basic CivNat conservatives. They are weak and ineffective at conservatism, but i never advocate for purging their huge, beautiful, rarely banned platforms. Stop being ridiculous. Immediately.

I disagree; the “big tent” approach, a form of mainstreaming, was, is, and remains a failure.  Although “purging” may be the wrong approach; ignoring in some cases can be better.  However, if someone promoting failed approaches is occupying your niche space, an ideological and memetic battle is necessary.

6. There’s no such thing as “Punching Right”

Nobody is above criticism. Nobody is above harsh criticism. Nobody. 

Including all the Quota Queens?  Now, don’t get all “crazy and bitter” on us here.

This doesn’t mean that person needs to be “purged” from the movement. We refine ourselves through defending our positions, we refine our arguments by having them more than once, and losing more often than we win. We refine our ideology through discussion; and you aren’t the gatekeeper of how that discussion is meant to be hosted. Anyone who has put their name or pseudonym forward accepts the inevitability that they will be challenged intellectually, morally and spiritually. There is surely no reason to schism between fans of this guy or that guy. That guy is not the be-all end-all, and this guy is only the guy until we find a better guy. Avoid cults of personality.

Err…the entire “movement” is based on “cults of personality” – hence all the catfights and feuding.  And does the “inevitability” of criticism apply to “milady” who has her crew of white knights ready to defend her honor (or what passes for it).

7. Get a thesaurus

Stop using words you know will get you banned on leftist social media platforms. The English language is the best language on the planet; and there are about 40 legitimate words that aren’t bannable for every bannable word you type. For example whore is bannable, strumpet is not. Retarded is bannable, simple is not. Understand that in one moment we talk about white excellence and in the other we show that we can’t learn, collectively, how to stop saying bad words and getting shut down. Adapt.

OK. Fine.

8. Quit pretending you don’t want women talking about politics

Yes you do. You need women to talk about politics. You may not want them in politics or to hold office, after all,who does; women are inherently terrible at it. Please though, stop with the ridiculous assertion that you want women to stop talking about current affairs or identity issues. It’s an aphrodisiac when a woman agrees with you about topics that you care deeply about. For her to understand what concerns you and why, is a comfort to you. To be able to vent your frustrations to someone who can hear you and can fathom your concern is a boon. Do you really want to come home to dinner, start moaning about Mueller, communists or the latest political compromise in direct opposition to your immediate needs and be met by a blank stare? No. We are a partnership, always. If you happen to be the very small amount of men who actually hate women, shut up and get out of the way of the men who would like to make lots of babies with the women that you despise.

See the response to #6 above.  Women can’t have it both ways – first, wanting to be involved “just like the guys” and then whining at the slightest criticism and hiding behind white knights who come charging out from behind Patrik Hermansson’s notepads.

9. Jews aren’t that powerful.

I am not suggesting you should give them a single moment of respite from pointing out each and every instance they exercise what influence they’ve been permitted to have.

I said permitted.

They are not innovative or cutthroat or fun. They merely exhibit an enviable in-group bias. This is the fundamental crux of the relationship between the West and those Jews who take advantage of systems we create for their group benefit. It is not every Jew you meet in day to day life; and therefore our attention to relations between our peoples as a whole should be fair, polite, but firm. The cry of antisemitism arises when the grand arch of Zionist influence is threatened- because it can be taken away from them in an instant, as has been done in many other civilizations throughout history. They cannot outperform us, purely based on the relative sizes of our populations; it is a logical strategy to shape a society to better suit your own interests, given this understanding. It is our role to politely refuse such machinations.

Be polite!  Always mention that they have a high, high-IQ and are HuWhyte Men of the West.

Ultimately, though the Jewish lobby has poisoned our society in many respects they will ultimately only destroy themselves with success; just as a parasite cannot live without a host, they cannot live without the protection of Western Civilization, either in our lands or in Jerusalem. We can recognize this reality in the declining Jewish population in the West, through intermarriage and emigration to Israel. This force is in a process of decline in the West- for as much as we can say demography is destiny, this is true for all peoples. It is thus far more important in this context that you rediscover your power and learn to start saying, “No, thank you. This is not in our interest. Good day.”

Can we say “No, thank you” to the poseurs, quota queens, and cosplay actors of Der Movement?

Absent of criticism we cannot take the steps necessary to accomplish our collective goals. It is what happens within our small but growing community that sets the stage for the future battles we will face; be they culturally, politically, or in some cases physically. We need to learn to turn into ourselves and each other, first to strengthen from within and only after that push forward into the mire that awaits us. If we do, then bleak prospects will become victorious battles rather than nihilistic concessions and defeat.

Alas, some people in Der Movement have skin thinner than a microtome slice and cannot take any criticism at all.  Those are the “leaders,” by the way.  Much confidence inspired!

Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Good point from the Chinaman.  The Alt Right is best described by the latter.  All bluster, no preparation whatsoever.

Spencer News

A new direction?

I agree with much of what Spencer said there in the video.  I too disdain ethnonationalism, but I strategically support Salter’s universal nationalism given the position of utter weakness that “our side” finds itself in.

I am hoping that Spencer is using his enforced down time to reassess his ideology and his approach, to re-emerge in the future with a new, better direction.

But, Richard, you need to ditch the Alt Right, drunken podcasts, Pepe and Kek, Trump worship, Der Movement Inc. and its fossilized dogma.

Talk of “power and empire” falls flat if it is the context of the stupidities just mentioned.  Grand talk of Imperium comes out badly when muttered by Beavis-and-Butthead.

Do better.  A good start would be the material at EGI Notes and Western Destiny.


I also see that he’s been trying to get AltRight.com online, which is reasonable, and still doing the Beavis-and-Butthead podcasts with the usual crew, which is not. Apparently, he has learned little, and understood nothing.

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?

More SLC News

In Der News.

Primate Negress and Neo-Marxist legal group censors Spencer.  I despise the Alt Right for making a mockery of racial activism, but I support their free speech rights, and would certainly choose Spencer to support over some alien Africaness.

Spencer and company have legitimate grounds to sue, tortious interference for starters; if this censorship is targeted only to pro-White groups, leaving alone Colored extremists, then extending the interference to discriminatory grounds is possible.

The objection would be: no money for lawyers.  Yes, keep on giving the lion’s share of “movement” money to keep the Happy Penguins and Latrine Flies Derbyshire living well, that’s the ticket, right?  There IS money, it’s just not going to Spencer and other hard-liners.  Whose fault is that?  Blame yourselves, Der Movement rank-and-file.  Another objection: can’t find a lawyer. If Der Movement had taken the advice, given, literally, for decades (two of them in my case), from some people to first build an infrastructure (including a designated legal team) and then engage in public hijinks, this situation would not exist.  Spencer needs to get back online first, second, needs to successfully deal with the lawfare suits targeting him, and then really needs to concentrate on infrastructure building – Richard, you need more folks on your side wearing suits and ties in courtrooms and fewer morons dressed like Captain America in the streets of Charlottesville.

Jewliani believes that “men are disposable” (including him?), but Milady Mantis Head Ivanka is untouchable.  I guess that’s the “fundamental premise” in action. I note that Rudy’s pussy pedestalization hasn’t prevented him from careening from one failed marriage to another.

So, we need a “big tent” strategy, but Charlottesville failed because it was open to the entire Right? Basically: whatever Spencer does is wrong.  Hypocrisy: it’s good that people don’t “shut down” Johnson when he criticizes them; on the other hand, if someone criticizes Johnson, he bans them from his website.  Fair point about GoDaddy – but that’s the price of affirmative action, no prudence, no planning, no common sense. Johnson is also correct about comments sections, including the legal implications. Johnson is also correct about free speech, consistent with my thoughts on this matter.

Is (as Johnson asserts) Taylor doing a service by dividing Jews by being pro-Jewish?  What about dividing Whites by being anti-White ethnic?  My problem with Amren in regard to this is not that they are Jew-friendly.  After all, they’ve been that way even when I was writing for them, and I accepted it as a strategic approach similar to what Johnson is talking about.  My problem is with them being pro-Jewish and at the same time anti-White ethnic.  And all the “yellow supremacist” talk just adds to it; in other words, Jews and Asians are considered high caste and White ethnics are low caste (in the case of the swarthoids, untouchables).  It’s the double standard that’s the problem.  If you are going to be accepting of Jews and avoid any and all criticism of Jews, then probably you should extend the same courtesy to all of the native peoples of Europe.  It’s not “White advocacy” to value Levantines and Orientals over Europeans.

Jewish “WNs” driven away from Amren because of MacDonald, as per Cofnas?  Nonsense.  The rabbi left because his Jewish school gave him a choice – us or them.  The other Jews left after the Duke-Hart dust-up, blame that on Duke and Hart, not MacDonald.  Finally, the Jews in Amren were destructive: Hart promoting a multiracial “White separatist state” or Levin saying that racial preservation for its own sake is “insane,” or Weissberg promoting the “racial status quo.”  And one can only imagine where Derbyshire got the “latrine flies” insult from.

Johnson hates snobs?  The lack of self-awareness is amazing.  And the supporter of intra-European ethnic cleansing denounces “imperialism” and “genocide.”  And is “drinking and drugs” really the worst “degeneracy” in the “movement?”

Robert Griffin goes semi-Nordicist.  It was just a matter of time, I guess.  Does he really think that the System supports White ethnics and is only against Nordics?  


Sailer cites 23andMe stupidities.

This retardation manifests when people start taking seriously low percentage results – I’m 4.2% this or 0.2% that – seriously, particularly at the 50% confidence rating that’s the default setting at the site.  Needless to say, the “timing the date of admixture” feature is equally ludicrous.  What’s going on with 23andMe is the same principle as Der Movement’s stupidities on race: turning legitimate science into trashy garbage tends to delegitimize the legitimate science, because the run-of-the-mill idiot is unable to distinguish science from trash.  So, biological race is real, population genetics can be interesting, and genetic kinship is fundamental to genetic interests.  But then people look at 23andMe nonsense, get confused, angry, misled, and/or disgusted, and then think the whole idea of racial genetics is nonsense, rather than the company’s product itself.  Likewise, racial science is real, and racial history is real, but Der Movement makes a mockery of it with HBD and Kempism, so many people get disgusted once they realize how they’ve been misled. Instead on turning against HBD or Kemp, they instead turn to “spiritual race” theories, like Yockey and Evola did when confronted with the nonsense of their time (Guntherism and calipers).

Amren 2018

Some comments.

Over 250 people gathered at the beautiful inn at Montgomery Bell State Park to hear from an exciting group of speakers. Though antifa promised to “smash” the conference, police and park rangers had clearly learned from the mistakes of Charlottesville. Courteous and professional officers kept antifa well away from us, and there were no confrontations. Anyone who stayed inside the conference center could barely even see, let alone hear, the 30 or so protesters. Police and park rangers set objective rules to allow both our guests and our opponents to exercise their First Amendment rights in the best traditions of our country. We are deeply grateful to the state of Tennessee for protecting the conference while enabling protesters to express themselves peacefully.

The police didn’t strictly enforce the anti-mask law in all cases, but, all in all, they did a credible job.  At some point though, the Right needs to protect their own conferences.

There were foreign press and two documentary crews at the conference, but we kept out dishonest, flagrantly hostile media. Both Huffington Post and Vice wanted to cover the conference, but they can be counted on to slant their coverage to the point that the event would be unrecognizable, and—even worse—they have doxed people. Audience security comes first.

I’ll give Amren credit for being wiser than others on the Right in this regard.  Apparently, some standards (other than: are you a Swedish homosexual?  Are you an embedded Norwegian journalist?) were applied.

This conference showed a striking unity of theme throughout the weekend, as speaker after speaker emphasized the need to learn from mistakes…

Apparently, there will be many opportunities for learning.

Unfortunately, the reaction may not be quick enough, and whites could suffer the fate of the American Indians or the Australian Aborigines. “If you don’t or can’t stand up for your interests, very, very bad things happen to you,” warned Mr. Davies. “That is the nature of human society and human history.”

The “White Man’s Disease” in a nutshell: the unwillingness or inability to defend and promote your own group interests.

Mr. Davies therefore argued that white advocates must think very seriously about how they present themselves. He acknowledged that in the “soft totalitarianism” in the West, there is no way to be involved in this cause without sacrifice. Like dissidents in Eastern Europe, we must accept the fact that many sympathizers are too intimidated to come forward, and white advocates must think very hard about whom to attract. “We need to inspire and win over the best people in our societies,” said Mr. Davies, “and we are not going to do that by behaving in a fashion that attracts only the mob.”

You mean like Charlottesville Ragnarok?

Mr. Davies warned against the “Marxist fallacy” that history will break our way without anyone taking action or making sacrifices. We must also not make excuses for flawed leaders simply because they have thrust themselves forward. 

Yes. Mr. Davies, meet Der Movement, Inc.  Meet many of the people at the very conference at which you made this excellent comment.

He expressed amazement that white advocates seem to hold leaders to lower standards than those they set for themselves.

So, if Davies says that, he’s wise; if Sallis says that, he’s “crazy and bitter.”  Affirmative action once again.  Want better leaders?  Ditch the official Der Movement Ethnic Affirmative Action Program.  But, I have to say, given the people – the “leaders” – speaking at this conference, Davies’ comments either reflect sarcastic irony or a stunning sense of self-awareness.  Some of the biggest failures of leadership shared the podium with him.

Mrs. Brimelow noted that both American Renaissance and VDARE.com have a proven record of accomplishment.

At what? Panhandling?

As regards Derbyshire, check out the comments thread for a debate about his presence at the meeting, as a speaker no less, and the misguided idiots defending this grotesque monstrosity.

One of my sanctimonious critics in Der Movement (someone who, by the way, has also sharply criticized Derbyshire and Derbyshire’s supporters yet spoke at this conference along with Derbyshire) labeled me a “low information moralizer” because I had the temerity to suggest that it would be good for the “movement” if he ended his childish feud with Richard Spencer.  But if we want to see some real low information moralizers, check out the fools defending Derbyshire in the comments thread.  Apparently, they believe the only issue is Derbyshire’s Chinese wife and half-Asian children.  Perhaps if they had ever bothered reading this blog, they could have made the jump to being high information moralizers. Let me help.  

First, Derbyshire not only engages in miscegenation, but he is a fervent supporter and promoter of the practice, vehemently debated Taylor in favor of it, and threatened violence against anti-miscegenation individuals who emailed him about it (i.e., “come over to my house and I’ll greet you in an appropriate manner,” or something to that effect – all at VDARE).  The pro-Jewish Derbyshire wrote an offensive “hit piece” against Kevin MacDonald, labelling MacDonald “the Marx of the anti-Semites” and that certainly did not help MacDonald, who at that time still had an ongoing academic career and was subject to intense pressure over his views.  Derbyshire did not take a “financial hit” because of defending pro-White positions – he was let go from National Review because of a self-serving essay he wrote warning his half-Asian children to beware of Blacks; I label that essay self-serving because it was part of his ongoing attempts to normalize his family to White conservatives, dividing Americans between “Black vs. non-Black” instead of “White vs. non-White,” and that his mixed children will be considered “White” by Blacks.  Derbyshire was then welcomed with open arms by Der Movement (he’s English after all), and has been invited to speak at Amren conferences, despite previously attacking Amren conference attendees (you know, the cucks who now applaud him) by agreeing to their characterization as “latrine flies.”  Derbyshire consistently labels “racial purists” as “nuts” and is not a pro-White activist but a HBD race realist/cognitive elitist.  And I won’t even get into his atrocious comments about child porn.  In my opinion, Derbyshire is a despicable excuse for a human being, it is hard for me to think of anyone in any way associated with the “movement” that I loathe more, and I have zero respect for any of his supporters and enablers, anyone who invites him to be a speaker at meetings, anyone who has him as a writer and/or podcaster for their sites, or anyone who shares a podium with him at a conference.

Several years ago, Johnson came out against Amren meetings and the time and money spent on them; now he attends and this year was actually a featured speaker.  Not wanting to be a “low information moralizer” I won’t speculate as to why Johnson gets to speak and not Spencer, whether the lack of Spencerism was a lack of interest from the Amren side, or from Spencer himself (or both).  I will note that Amren’s attacks against Spencer for “Hailgate” and alleged anti-Jewish attitudes is curious since Counter-Currents is no friend of the Jews, features positive articles on Hitler, and Johnson has been quoted as making “anti-Semitic” comments himself (“Jews have to leave America,” etc.).

As far as Dickson goes, after reading his interview, to me he’s just another “movement” apparatchik. A dime a dozen.

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

More Sweaty Fetishism Debunked

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

The Viking travels to the New World are well documented, and should be acknowledged and celebrated.  However, after that, the essay goes off the rails in typically demented “movement” fashion.

Nordic Amerindians.  Nordic Polynesians.  Nordics from Atlantis.  Nordic Martians.  Nordics from the Andromeda Galaxy.

By the way, blond hair in Pacific Islanders is due to a native gene variant that differs from that of Europeans, and thus once again “movement” fantasies are disproved by objective scientific facts.

The common occurrence of blond hair among the dark-skinned indigenous people of the Solomon Islands is due to a homegrown genetic variant distinct from the gene that leads to blond hair in Europeans, according to a new study from the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Hmmm…it seems that refined French “intellectuals” are no better than the American “burgers” they so despise.

Summary: Der Movement Inc. LIES to you about race and racial history, it lies over and over again.  As to the excuse “it’s just ignorance, not dishonesty,” I respond that the facts about Polynesian hair color genetics can be found with about 10 seconds of online searching; instead AltRight.com runs an article quoting some crazed babbling from 1953.

They are fundamentally dishonest.
