Donald J Antifa: Sallis Right Again

Some in Der Movement are almost there, they just need to connect the logical dots.

A few days ago I wrote this. Relevant excerpts, emphasis added:

Most of all, it should have been known that the System works hand-in-glove with “Antifa”…the following three statements constitute the de facto reality in America (and with slight rewriting of the statements, applies for most of Western Europe as well).

1. Antifa is part of the System.

2. Antifa is part of the US government.

3. Antifa is part of the Trump administration.

Now, that last comment is not meant to be taken literally, in the official de jure sense…But I’m not talking about official roles here, and I’m not talking about perceptions, and I’m not talking about a literal reality in which Trump gives the leftists their marching orders.  No, I’m talking here about on-the-ground de facto reality.

Consider: Trump as President is the head of the US government’s law enforcement. It is his constitutional obligation as head of the federal branch of government, assisted by his Attorney General, to clamp down on domestic terrorists (including domestic terrorists who attack his own supporters at rallies!)…Their inaction enables domestic terrorism and allows the Far Left to act with impunity…As long as Trump and Sessions refuse their lawful obligation to take action, it is a de facto tacit approval of the leftists.  

Now read this, a new article at VDARE.  Excerpts, emphasis added:

Bottom line: even under a supposedly patriot president, politicized police seem to be allowing Antifa violence and instead attacking the victims. Gleeful MSM reporter/ activists can credit Antifa with repressing the Alt Right, but the masked thugs themselves aren’t the ultimate threat. They are in effect serving as the paramilitaries for the local authorities, preventing events which the City Fathers don’t want to happen anyway.

Thus, the Alt Right is in the impossible situation where masked anarchists are given the protection of law and are coddled by the courts, but demonstrators who simply want to express increasingly popular views can’t even obtain counsel.

Remember: Donald Trump is President and Jeff Sessions is Attorney General.  They are the heads of law enforcement in America.  They could end this overnight if they wanted to.  Obviously they do not want to.

Ultimately, this raises the same question as does mass illegal immigration: Is this a country of laws or not?

Remember: Donald Trump is President and Jeff Sessions is Attorney General.  They are the heads of law enforcement in America.  They could end this overnight if they wanted to.  Obviously they do not want to.

The lawyer who enabled Richard Spencer’s Michigan State event, Kyle Bristow, left politics altogether after an intensive media campaign—and, sources tell me, Antifa threats against Bristow and his family. Bristow himself hints at this when he complains “there is a side to the story which the media is not telling”.  [Richard Spencer’s attorney leaves ‘ideas’ foundation, Detroit News, March 3, 2018]

That explains the Bristow situation.  Remember, it’s not Obama/Holder/Lynch in charge now. It’s Trump/Sessions.

…what is happening is systematic government repression—politicized law enforcement is working in de facto alliance with violent Totalitarian Left to shut down peaceful dissent.

Remember: Donald Trump is President and Jeff Sessions is Attorney General.  

Trump: a fraud, a vulgar ignorant buffoon, the top cuck.  “Military at the border?”  We’ll see about that.  How about military against Antifa?  How about the FBI against Antifa?  How about the Attorney General against Antifa?  

Remember: Donald Trump is President and Jeff Sessions is Attorney General.

Course Correction

A realization of utter failure?

Listen here.

Hey, Richard, at least read this.  Even if you disagree with its premises and conclusions 100%, at least by formulating why you think it is wrong it will assist in your course correction and redirection.

More fundamentally: any strategy and every event needs to be very, very carefully planned, with every contingency covered.

With all your talk of having “fun” at events, don’t you guys get it yet?  It’s war; it is not supposed to be “fun.”  If you want to have access to the public space, which you are being denied by FORCE, you need to use EQUAL OR SUPERIOR FORCE to take back your “right” to access that space.  If the opposition is “willing to go more far” in their actions than you or any other group, they win and you lose.

And, yes, it’s true, Antifa is being protected and enabled by the Establishment.  Now, who is in charge of Federal law enforcement in America?  Donald J. Trump and Jeff Sessions.  Think about that.  Think carefully: during the Obama administration, would Far Right groups have been allowed to openly (illegally wearing masks by the way) engage in domestic terrorism?  Would Far Right groups have been allowed to openly organize on campuses, armed and dangerous?  Would Far Right groups have been allowed to intimidate non-Whites moving into White neighborhoods?

Yet, Trump and Sessions allow Antifa to run wild in the streets, they allow Far Left armed groups to form on campuses, and they allow the Far Left to intimidate and attack Whites who “gentrify” non-White neighborhoods.

Who is the real enemy here?

So, I will agree with the excuse that it’s not really Alt Right vs. Antifa, it is Alt Right vs. Antifa + Establishment, with Trump and Sessions being on the side of Antifa (their unwillingness to perform their law enforcement role is functionally equivalent to complicity with the Far Left).

This is a tough nut to crack – the institutional racism against Whites, structural racism against European-Americans, the fact that Antifa is indirectly and implicitly supported by the entire American Establishment, including “fascist bigots” (sic) like Trump and Sessions.

At the very least, the Alt Right should have enough decency and self-respect to call a spade a spade and “call out” the ultra-leftist, White-hating Trump and his buffoonish, inept Attorney General for conspiring with the Far Left to deprive White Americans of their constitutional right of public assembly.  That would not, of course, solve the problem, but it would at least name the problem, recognize the problem, and you cannot solve any problem that you are unable to even recognize.

The God Emperor is functionally equivalent to Head Bolshevik and Mr. Magoo Howdy Doody is also complicit, through his utter and complete inaction, with the Far Left’s domestic terrorism.

While Spencer attempts to figure out what to do next, why doesn’t he at least mentally toughen up and admit the facts of the case?

In a real sense, following this line of argument to its logical conclusion, Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions are the de facto leaders of Antifa. If not them, then who? If they wanted, Trump and Sessions could solve all of Spencer’s problems overnight, and only by strictly following the letter of the law, simply by doing their jobs and fulfilling their minimal obligations. That’s not even being “pro-Nazi” – it’s simply them stopping putting their thumbs on the scale in favor of Antifa.  But they refuse to do so.  It’s doesn’t really matter why – it matters what.  And the reality of what is, as stated: Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions are the de facto leaders of Antifa

Two brief final points.

First, readers of this blog will question why I bother to give advice to Spencer and the Alt Right, since I have expressed my opposition to the Alt Right “movement.”

My answer is simple.  On a personal level, I’m a disinterested actor here. I don’t care about “movement personalities” as people, one way or the other; I have nothing invested in personal feuds (of which we know of several currently extant in Der Movement).  My interest is solely focused on ideas and actions and how these people influence ideas and actualize those idea through action. I have no personal ambition to be any Grand Poohbah or Fearless Leader in Der Movement; in any case, those roles are strictly apportioned through Der Movement Affirmative Action Program, from which I am barred. Thus, if any “movement” personality actually shapes up and starts doing well, then I’ll support them and more power to them.  If they screw up, if they promote maladaptive, destructive ideas, then I’ll criticize them. I give advice to be helpful, in the forlorn hope that someday one of these heroes will actually listen.

And my approach – judging people based on their ideas and actions – is better than the way they do things – which is to judge ideas and actions based on what they think of the people who espouse them.  For example, after the Johnson-Spencer feud became “hot,” mysteriously Johnson became a rabid ethnonationalist with an anti-Russian flavor, while Spencer’s previously tolerant attitude toward homosexuality suddenly vanished.  All a coincidence, I guess.

Second, I would suggest that those on the Far Right have long memories.  If and when the wheel turns, and the power shifts more in our direction, we should be as intolerant to the Left as they are to us.  No – more so, since we have Truth and Justice on our side.  Everything they do now should be returned with interest, returned a thousand-fold.

Addendum: Does being “selective” (something is better than nothing) contribute at least to some extent to what was a minor success?

Of course, that’s an order of magnitude less selectivity than is needed.

Run Silent, Run Deep: Helping the Community

Good news and bad news, and some constructive criticism.

The good news: some “movement” Nutzis understand the importance of community organizing and community outreach.

The bad news: they not only do it ineptly, but they broadcast it to the enemy.

Lesson: Never, EVER, have Type I activists monopolizing leadership positions in ANY racialist group, strategy, tactic, or endeavor. NEVER, EVER. For godssakes, do I have to draw you a picture?  You Do, and do QUIETLY, you don’t broadcast it at an early, embryonic stage. You don’t participate in blustering “interviews” with White-hating, anti-racist, yeastbucket shills.

Again, why is it that the allegedly “low-IQ, undisciplined, useless, low-time preference” Negro knows how to do community organizing correctly, and the White Superhero does not?

Some constructive criticism and suggestions:

The next time some idiot asks you for an interview, respond thus: “No thank you, I don’t have the time; I’m busy helping people.” Be discreet, don’t call attention to your actions.  It won’t stay undercover for long, but there’s a difference between word getting out because you are doing and accomplishing, and word getting out because hateful SJWs mock you publicly after you call attention to yourselves and invite the fox into the henhouse.

You should set up Euro-American help centers. These can be one or more on-site physical facilities and it can also be activists driving to meet those people who need help where they need it. Help real people – White people and White people only – who have real problems.  Don’t help those hostile to their race and our cause, but certainly do help apolitical normies who don’t know much about anything than their own life situation.  One doesn’t have to be on our side (at first) to get help – after all, there are so few of them – but certainly they should at least be neutral and not overly hostile. And of course, White activists should be helping each other.  By analogy with “god helps those who help themselves” we will be most effective in helping, and recruiting, White normies if we ourselves are all straightened out and doing well.  The same structures available for the normies can be used for activists.

Political education should be an integral part of the process, but it must be done prudently and patiently.  You do not want to be ham-fisted about it, pushing pamphlets (or websites) on people, wild-eyed, foaming-at-the-mouth, etc. Initially, it has to be about making a personal connection, establishing a rapport, and introducing the most basic ideas after that, all the time trying to connect those ideas to their personal issues, problems, and experiences. Of course, from the very beginning they should know who and what you are and what you stand for, be upfront about it.  They should know who it is who cares about them and wants to help them.  But be genuine in your desire to help, make that predominant at first, don’t use helping as a mere excuse to engage in Nutzi propaganda from the get-go.  If people think you are just humoring their problems, using that just in order to recruit them, they’ll be turned off and lost to you.

If possible, contact “movement”-connected lawyers to make sure your dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s especially in the event any activity may require that those you help sign liability waivers (or some other issue of which we may be initially unaware).  We who are racial activists need to pool our expertise to help each other do productive activities – those of us who are lawyers or doctors or plumbers of electricians or businessmen or scientists of mechanics or schoolteachers or soldiers or police or firemen or whatever – the expertise is out there.

What about the System co-opting your efforts?  Of course, the quieter and the more discreet you are about your efforts, the more you can forestall co-opting efforts.  However, more fundamentally, the best way to prevent co-opting is to offer something that cannot be precisely mimicked.  The System can certainly throw money and resources at a problem (if they wish to do so), but what they cannot do (and still be true to the System and its ideology) is to provide sincerity, authenticity, a genuine desire to help, the proper political education, and the ability to give Whites back their Identity and make them proud of that Identity. The System is more likely to send a bunch of condescending, arrogant, White-hating SJW blue hairs unable to establish a connection with the people they are supposed to help, and certainly unable to connect those people’s uplift with a positive self-image rooted in racial and cultural identity.  If you do it right, it cannot be co-opted; or to put it another way, if the System was able to precisely co-opt your efforts, then they’ll be working to spread pro-White activism.

And whatever you do, don’t engage in “movement” freakishness; real people with real problems don’t want to hear about “Savitri Devi” or “cephalic indices” or “Kali Yuga” or “subfractional admixture percentages” or “the men who can’t tell time” or “the racial provenance of Julius Caesar.”  Save that for the next “movement” circle jerk, and concentrate political education for “normies’ as the essentials.  Later, if they so wish, they can learn the esoterica.

And, again: don’t broadcast what you are doing to the System.

As the sub-mariners say: run silent, run deep.

Traits of Ex-“Movement” Traitors

Misfits on the march.

I have been reading a number of leftist online journals, featuring interviews of “ex-neo-Nazis” and “reformed skinheads” etc., etc. etc.  You know the deal: former “racists” who “explain” what the “movement” is all about, and of course provide a completely misleading picture, because these traitorous misfits basically are talking about themselves and others of their ilk, which are one type of activist, and are not representative of activists as a whole, much less representative of the most dedicated and sincere among them.  In one sense, these people unwittingly are helpful as they are basically providing misinformation to our enemies, to the extent that the System believes that the pitiful confessions of the lowest sort of “activist” – essentially the “White trash” of the “movement” – somehow are informative to what racial nationalism is all about. It’s always good to be misunderstood and underestimated by your enemies; on the other hand, this misinformation does us harm to the extent that it is believed by those we wish to recruit, who will be misled and “turned off” by what they see and hear.  Are such scum really what racial nationalism is about?  Then why bother with the “movement?”

In any case, the misfit traitors have some characteristics in common, and it’s useful to understand these types – the ultra-defectives (as opposed to the “run-of-the mill” defectives that make up such a large base of “movement” activists) – so they can be avoided and eschewed.

Typically, those who “break with the movement” and show up at Vice or the Huffington Post or as travelling freakshow exhibits for “watchdog” groups are:

1. Relatively young; they haven’t been in the “movement” too long.

2. Highly defective on a personal level. These people are the archetypes of the “movement” activist stereotype – personal failures, “losers” in the fundamental sense of the word, angry at the world for their own inadequacies, and who join the “movement” to “have a sense of belonging.”  Since they themselves are characterized by these traits, and being limited in their mentality or not having the character to admit the fault is with themselves and not with the “movement” itself, they project their own inadequacies and reasons for becoming “activists” on racial nationalists in general.  Instead of admitting they speak only for themselves and their fellow freaks and misfits, they deign to assume that they are representative of everyone, ranging from a Jared Taylor to a Kevin MacDonald to a Richard Spencer to a Greg Johnson and, yes, to a Ted Sallis…all the way down to the cosplay players at street rallies.  

3. They are typically not college educated or, if they are so educated, they rarely get beyond an undergraduate degree.  They are far more likely to have spent time in prison than in a post-graduate school classroom.

4. These are almost always Type I activists: Nutzi types who swallow “movement” dogma for the “feel good” boost it gave them.  I’ve never heard of a former genuine Type II activist who repudiated their beliefs and gives breathless anti-racist interviews to leftist blogs or journals.

5. Ethnically, they are typical for the usual American Type I activist.  Personality wise, the same. 

6. They had no real ideological foundation whatsoever.  Having joined the “movement” for personal reasons, they had no intellectual, ideological, or moral underpinning for their beliefs; their racialism was a mile wide but an inch deep. All they had to do was meet “one caring Black person” and their “racialist convictions” went out the window.  What kind of idiots are these?  When was it a prerequisite for being a genuine racial nationalist to believe in the impossibility of finding a decent person of another race?  You see, these misfits actually represented in reality the stereotype of the “racist” as being someone consumed by hate, by negativism, rather than as someone with a progressive vision based on a deep understanding of Race, Culture, and Civilization.  Well, after all, as I’ve said, these are Type I activists, the types to have a Hitler tattoo and a penchant for Third Reich imagery, but never having heard the  names Francis Parker Yockey or Frank Salter before.  Only a fool with no deep ideological conviction could so blithely dismiss the reality of the racial crisis and the realities of Western decline and degeneration.  The tides of history don’t change because some random Negro was friendly to you.

7. They are hysterical and weak-minded, with no “measure” or sense of reality; thus they easily shift from one extreme to another.  I actually read one of these idiots claim that “White nationalists are already in power” because the civic nationalist cuck Trump (you know, the guy who supports affirmative action, has Jewish family connections, wanted DACA amnesty before the base kicked back, and who can’t get any significant portion of even his civic nationalist agenda – that is, whatever of it he hasn’t already abandoned – actualized into policy) was elected President, and because Bannon (another civic nationalist with an ideology even more superficial as what these misfits “believed” in) was briefly part of Trump’s national security team, and because Richard Spencer – who can’t show his face in public without having that face punched with impunity by leftist thugs supported by the System – was going to “run for office and win the election.”  Yeah, we’re still waiting for that last one.

Now, I can understand if a person, while remaining a racial nationalist at heart, drops out of the “movement” because of disgust with Der Movement, Inc. and its stupidities.  It would be better to attempt to build a New Movement, but that’s not for everyone, so I could understand quietly dropping out.  But to actually repudiate your beliefs?  And do so publicly? Any person who repudiates racial nationalism never really believed in racial nationalism to begin with.  To coin an Alt Right phrase, they were merely “LARPING.”  The demographic realities, the course of history, the clash of civilizations, racial conflict, High Culture, and genetic interests do not simply disappear because of an epiphany that some weak-minded person has when they realize that not every single Negro on Earth is a violent criminal.  In a very real sense, the term “former racialist” is an oxymoron, because the “former” implies that the person was never actually any sort of authentic racialist to begin with.  They were simply play-acting as a Nutzi as a cover for their own personal inadequacies.  We don’t need, and should not want, such people; as far as their repudiation goes, it’s addition by subtraction.

Der Youth Will Save Us!

The omega race.

Read this.

So, a sample of White college students are such hysterical SJWs that ~2/3 of them would rather “hold their hands in near-freezing water” than have “(falsely) high scores of implicit racism” sent around in email.  This is the generation that’s going to save us from all the dastardly “boomers?”

That’s not to defend “boomers” – but are Millennials (and those younger) any better?  The Alt Right should probably stop their generational dog whistling and deal with reality, which is rather harsh.

As Much Comedy As Tragedy

Exposing the “spin” of the Alt Fail account.

Reading what the Alt Fail writes about the Hermansson infiltration, the following minimizing spin emerges: “Somehow – who knows how! – the fellow evaded Steadman’s extreme vetting.  Well, he attended a few meetings here and there, and he talked with a couple of people, but, you know, he was so inconsequential that no one remembers him, and, like, you know, no harm no foul.  Move on, move on, there’s nothing to see here.”  However, Hermansson tells a quite different story; his story, backed up as it is with voluminous (and very believable) details, and videos, seems to be closer to the truth than is the official (and sanitized) “movement” version.  Let’s read excerpts (emphasis added) from Hermansson’s account (I’m not linking to the execrable site from whence this came, you can find it yourself if you are so inclined):

At any normal dinner the prospect of forcibly removing all non-whites would be greeted with shock, but repatriation was a relatively uncontroversial topic around this table.

The rest of the night I talked with Brits, Swedes, Lithuanians and Americans. Some of these were super-stars within the movement, such as the never-before-photographed American alt-right figure, Greg Johnson.

Above the sound of clinking glasses men in rented tuxedos discussed eugenics, the coming “race war” and the supposedly ongoing genocide of white people. Smugly they congratulated themselves on managing to keep the dinner a secret, away from the prying eyes of anti-fascists. Little did they know, I was secretly filming the whole thing.

Becoming part of the London Forum, the UK’s most important far-right ‘think-tank’, was not as difficult as its reputation would suggest. I got my foot in the door by claiming to be a disillusioned Swede curious about the alt-right movement in the UK. I said I came to London inspired by Brexit and to get away from the “cultural Marxism” (a favourite phrase for conspiracy-minded, far-right activists) of Swedish universities.

Jez Turner, leader of the London Forum and one of the best known far-right activists on the UK scene, quickly invited me to meet up. Later, as paranoia about a mole increased, new members began to be thoroughly vetted and were required to provide letters of recommendation from trusted members.

Luckily for me, Scandinavian heritage and culture is fetishised by some within the UK far right, meaning interest in my Swedish background overcame most suspicion. At formal dinners, for instance, we sometimes opened by drinking from a ceremonial Viking horn, then raising it to the ceiling in a prayer to the mythological Norse god Odin.

One figure from the London Forum showed a particular interest in me as soon as I arrived. Despite being in his mid-fifties, Stead Steadman, a man of diminutive stature, was always dressed in a khaki shirt, khaki shorts and black walking boots; he looked like a cross between a boy scout and a member of the Hitler Youth. Little did I know at the time but this man was to be central to the whole project. Once close to him he opened doors to some of the most influential far-right figures in the world.

Once the trust was built Steadman began openly discussing the London Forum, people they planned to invite and who he liked and disliked within the movement. The information I gathered helped HOPE not hate map the London Forum network and the movements of key activists with precision. We learned of international conferences in Lithuania, Italy and Sweden being attended by British extremists.

It even got to the stage where I was asked to sit in on the vetting meetings for new London Forum members. Steadman, Turner and I would meet applicants who wanted to attend meetings and question them on their background, politics and commitment to the cause. Soon there was almost nothing happening in the London Forum that I and HOPE not hate did not know.

On the face of it the meetings are comical. A man in a long, white, curly baroque wig introduces two to three speakers per night covering topics such as gun laws, religion and the lack of freedom of speech, interspersed with poetry performed in Old Norse or Anglo-Saxon English.

Also active in London are tiny Odinist groups, often with a healthy smattering of nazi adherents. One sunny afternoon a group of us gathered in the Barbican Centre, an iconic brutalist housing complex replete with green areas, for a ‘moot’.

Steadman, in his typical khaki shorts, lifted a horn to the sky and began to pray to the Nordic gods before taking a gulp of mead. Then he placed a Viking horn to his lips and blew, but instead of a bellowing blast echoing out a stuttered honk spluttered from his lips.

Sometimes being a mole in the far right was dangerous, nerve racking or scary but at other times it was surreal, ridiculous and frankly comical.

Gregory Lauder-Frost

He doesn’t hold back and I can feel little drips of his saliva hitting my face as he speaks. He describes his colleague Brooks as a “common bloke” and how Daniel Friberg, founder of Arktos and a leading alt-right figure, is “not a big thinker”. Neither does Lauder-Frost like Richard Spencer. He tells me that Spencer, who has spoken at the TBG, is “naive” and “doesn’t understand Europe”.

By the time I leave the pub it is clear that an important split is emerging within the alt-right movement between some of the biggest players.

If you want to get to the very heart of the alt-right, all roads lead to America. While Europe has produced its fair share of prominent alt-right activists and big names from America regularly visit, it was clear that if I was to better understand the alt-right movement, the emerging split and generally to get closer to the big names, I would have to head across the Atlantic.

During Greg Johnson’s short visit to London I had got to know him well. In addition to the Bowden dinner and the conference the following day I had spent an afternoon at his hotel alongside Steadman. With Johnson being at the very heart of the emerging split in the alt-right, it was decided I should start the American part of my infiltration with him.

Johnson admired the London Forum so much that he replicated the concept in New York and Seattle with closed conferences of hard-core activists addressed by leading speakers from the far right. Recent events had been attended by big names, such as the internationally recognised antisemite and editor of The Occidental Observer, Kevin MacDonald, as well as the UK’s most well-known alt-right vlogger Colin Robertson (aka Millennial Woes).

One sunny Saturday in June, I joined the list of speakers at one of these forums in Seattle. I had intended to attend as a guest but one week before the event Johnson contacted me and asked me to give the opening address, removing any doubt in my mind that I was now accepted as part of this movement.

With delicious irony I opened the event by talking about the danger of anti-fascist infiltration.

After the Seattle Forum I head to New York. The split between Counter-Currents Publishing and AltRight Corporation (the result of the Arktos row mentioned earlier) had got especially nasty.

Having spent a few days at the heart of Counter-Currents, I decided I had to go get the other side of the story.

“We had connections in the Trump administration, we were going to do things!”

I manage to convince Jason Reza Jorjani, co-founder of AltRight Corporation and editor of Arktos Media, to meet for a drink. I’m sitting across from him in an Irish pub in the shadow of the Empire State Building. The first thing he said was: “You’re not in touch with Greg [Johnson], are you?”

I assure him I’m not, knowing he would leave if he ever found out I had spent the last month getting to know people on the other side of the split, some of whom had recently accused Jorjani of being a CIA agent. “It’s like the SA and the SS,” Jorjani said. “A Night of the Long Knives is coming though.”

Jorjani talks for hours, displaying a remarkable arrogance coupled with a tiring self-pity. He’s a remarkably extreme character, much more so than his public persona. He sees the world one day being run by a single strong leader and predicts it won’t be long before bank notes are adorned with images of Hitler.

I ask about AltRight Corporation and its aims and objectives and he explains how it is a “government in waiting”. But then, out of nowhere, as though it was no big deal, he says: “We had connections in the Trump administration, we were going to do things!”

I lean forward, praying that the camera I have hidden in one of my shirt buttons captured what he had just said. I can hardly believe it. 

I thought the Keystone Cops stupidities of the real world meetings from the 1990s were bad, but whatever we Old Right types experienced back then is nothing compared to the tragicomedy of today.  Twenty years ago, maybe the utter incompetence of “meeting security” allowed an infiltrator into a public (never private!) meeting, where the infiltrator took notes, and/or wrote down license plate numbers outside after the meeting. Today, the infiltrators get all cozy with leaders and with actual decision making, and then infiltrators actually lecture genuine activists about “the dangers of leftist infiltrators.”  The infiltrator sits with leaders discussing how to “vet” genuine activists! 

 

And the other side of the Alt Right feud is not much better.  At AltRight.com, we read the following from a blogger there talking about Charlottesville:

We forced the President of the United States to weigh in on our side…

Yeah…if you didn’t notice, Alt Righter, he denounced you, and then signed a declaration, in writing, not only denouncing you but pledging to use all of the resources of the US government against you.

Delusional much?

A Question of Accountability

Another in an endless series of failures and humiliations.

 

I am sure that by now readers know about the latest unmitigated “movement” disaster, the all-too-predicable infiltration and “exposure” of the Alt Right by a heroic two-fisted Swede (“Oh, look at what a tough guy I am, I really wanted to punch those Nutzis in the face, but I didn’t want to damage my manicure on their coke-bottom spectacles”).

 

 

 

In May of this year, I went to London to speak at the London Forum and the first annual Jonathan Bowden dinner. Stead Steadman introduced me to a young Swedish man going by the name Erik Hellberg. I was told that Erik was, like so many others, a newcomer to the movement who was going to write a master’s thesis on doxing, deplatforming, and harassment directed at White Nationalists.

The day after the London Forum, Stead and I met with Erik in a quiet hotel bar for a brief interview. I talked about my own experiences of harassment in San Francisco. We also talked a bit about White Nationalism in general, as well as other people he might interview. I suggested he talk to Charles Krafft, who had much more interesting stories than mine.

Erik seemed a nice enough fellow. A bit socially awkward, a bit inarticulate, a bit effeminate, but not so outside the norm for academic types that I felt suspicious. And he came with the recommendation of Stead Steadman.

Later Erik told me he was going to the US. I told him that friends of mine were holding a Northwest Forum meeting Seattle in June, and it would be an opportunity to interview Charles. I figured that if he had passed vetting for the London Forum and the Bowden Dinner, he would be fine for the Northwest Forum as well. (Stead actually has a reputation for being too strict in his vetting procedures, which made it impossible for some of Millennial Woes’ fans to see him speak at the May Forum.)

 

 

I initially commented on that at Counter-Currents thus:

 

First, I am sorry that Greg and others had this bad experience with the low-rent piece of dishonest trash Hermansson.

Second, I’ve been involved with the “movement” since the mid-90s, and I must say that this sort of thing happens with distressing regularity.  WNs too nice? Too trusting?  Yes, but also horrifically bad security.  There needs to be a careful evaluation of this case.  How did Hermansson pass the “extreme vetting?” What went wrong?  There also needs to be accountability.  Hermansson was recommended by “Stead Steadman” (whoever that is).  Very well.  Why?  What credentials did Hermansson have that impressed Steadman to his sincerity? Without accountability and without responsibility, nothing will ever change.

And can I suggest that “newcomers to the movement” not be invited to private events?  Unfair to those who are sincere?  Yes, but too bad.  Perhaps a higher level of personal interaction needs to be earned.

 

 

And how did this nice Swedish fellow get through Steadman’s “extreme vetting” and all the other “extreme vetting” that would likely have had a Codreanu or an Evola booted out with a swift kick in the rear?  Well, I had my suspicions, but kept it to myself until the other shoe dropped (emphasis added):

 

Mr. Hermansson, who was sent undercover by the British anti-racist watchdog group Hope Not Hate, spent months insinuating himself into the alt-right, using his Swedish nationality (many neo-Nazis are obsessed with Sweden because of its “Nordic” heritage) as a way in.

 

Hermansson also notes in the video how Steadman’s interest with “Germanic paganism” (who would have ever guessed?) made Steadman and friends vulnerable to the attentions of a Scandinavian Nordic

 

Hoist on the petard of its own Nordicism, ethnic affirmative action, and ethnic fetishism – Der Movement marches on.  Can I say: I told you so?  Yes, indeed, as any reader of EGI Notes know well.  Please note how the enemy knows Der Movement well also: who they choose as an infiltrator, knowing that a Nordic Scandinavian will be given a free pass and handed the keys to the kingdom.  

 

We have a “movement” that ridiculed and killed a Joe Tommasi but that welcomes an infiltrating scumbag like Hermansson with open arms – and then any have the nerve to assert that there is no such thing as “affirmative action” in Der Movement?  Have you ever seen such a bunch of dishonest individuals with zero self-awareness?  The anti-racists know better, and use that knowledge against the “movement” and its obsessions, as we see in this case.

 

More from Johnson:

 

I also suggested that Erik speak briefly at the Northwest Forum about his research project, to see if others in attendance would be interested in an interview.

It turns out that Erik Hellberg is really named Patrik Hermansson, and he was a spy for the antifa group Hope Not Hate. Not only was he recording interviews with people, he was also wearing a hidden camera and taking videos, and the results of his year-long investigations are going to be released as a documentary video.

My initial reaction to this news was a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. I imagine that everyone Erik spoke to felt the same way. He certainly made the rounds, attending the Extremists Club in London, the London Forum, the Northwest Forum, and even Unite the Right in Charlottesville, insinuating his way into the good graces of Jez Turner and Stead Steadman, and interviewing not only me but also Millennial Woes, Tom Sunic, Gregory Lauder-Frost, Jason Jorjani, and Daniel Friberg, as well as chatting up countless people at various events.

It is terrible to feel that one’s trust has been violated by a rat, and it is even worse to feel that you lent your credibility to such a person, so he could violate even more people’s trust. In particular, I must apologize to the 30-odd people at the Northwest Forum who were exposed to this snitch because of me…I also have to laugh at the pretense that Hermansson was risking his life. The only person who ever harmed him was a fellow Leftist in Charlottesville. Frankly, one of the chief lessons of this fiasco is that White Nationalists are far too nice. One always regrets being too kind…I wanted to see how long it would take before a photo got out, and I wanted to see who would finally put it out there: the enemy or one of the many loathsome people in our movement. I was betting it would be movement scum, and I was right. An old photo of me was dug up and circulated in January, and other pictures were surreptitiously taken at the last AmRen conference. So Hope Not Hate is a distant third.

 

 

In his post, Greg talks about Jorjani.  Let’s take a look in that direction to see what it tells us about the “movement.” Paradoxically (or perhaps not, if one views the fundamental basis of the “movement” as hostility to Southern and Eastern [in that order] Europeans), for some “leaders” Nordicism is mixed with Judeophilia or Oriental worship or an Aryan fetishism that imagines racial comrades in Iran and India.  As an example of the latter was the bizarre Alt Right infatuation with Jorjani.  Apparently Jorjani, subject to ethnoracial insults only a fraction of that experience by the typical “movement Euro-swarthoid” has broken with the Alt Right.  Read (emphasis added):

 

I hereby resign, effective immediately, from the Alt-Right Corporation that I co-founded and from my position as the Editor-in-Chief of Arktos Media. Of course, I remain a shareholder in both companies and, upon my return home to New York, I will enter into what I hope will be a brief buyout negotiation with my partners Richard Spencer and Daniel Friberg so that the shares I hold may remain within the movement’s leadership. (I am currently in San Francisco, for a private meeting concerning research and development of exotic technology that may someday serve the Iranian Air Force.) It should be added that, from now on, former associates within the Alt-Right movement of Europe and North America ought to consider any interactions with me as diplomatic relations with a representative of the coming post-Islamic political order of Iran and the wider Persianate world. This point cannot be overemphasized. Over the next few years, we will be watching with a hawk’s eye to identify the true friends and enemies of our archeo-futurist Iran.

 

And read (emphasis added):

 

What is worse is that in the long months of the Spring of 2017, as I waited for funding to materialize, I watched the corporation that was my brainchild turn into a magnet for white trash…The comments sections of our website devolved into a cesspool filled by the most despicable pond scum, former 4-chaners who would routinely pile on in trolling attacks against me every time I published something with a bit of intellectual content. “Iranians is brown poo-poo people” kind of sums it up. I decided to stop contributing until the investment came in and I could really clean things up…In May, at a meeting in London, I was assured by the investors that the obstacles had at last been cleared and I could expect our collaboration to begin in June. When I reported this to Richard at a New York lunch at the end of the same month, he thoughtlessly and angrily dismissed a plan that the investors had shared with me for creating an economic and security corridor from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea and across to the Caucasus. This “Neo-Scythian” Ukraine-based approach to the long-term revitalization and liberation of Europe – linked to a future, post-Islamic Greater Iran via the Caucasus – offended the Russophilia that has been fostered by his wife.

 

Comment on that is superfluous, other than to note, for the edification of third party observers, that this is the fellow elevated by the Alt Right to a position high in their councils, and who was turned on by the “movement” base only because of his obsessive harping about the greater glories of “archeo-futurist Iran.”  The Alt Right is the lowest sewer of the “movement,” it is a curse on racial nationalism, and anyone who thought it a good idea to give this Jorjani any sort of “movement” forum has, in my opinion, advertised their abysmal lack of good judgement for all to see.

 

I could say: I told you so.  So I will: I told you so. Check the “Jorjani” archives at this blog for proof of that.

 

Accountability?  None.  “Movement” leadership admitting gross negligence? Don’t make me laugh. Change?  Don’t expect it. 

 

Ultimately, it is the ran-and-file of the “movement” who are responsible for this. They can change the “movement,” alter its culture and eschew its obsessions, end its affirmative action program, and force accountability for leadership.  All they need to do is “vote with their feet” (or with their computers, for the digitally inclined, which is the vast majority these days). Gravitate to different leadership, visit different blogs and websites, and donate in other directions.  Will they do so?  For the most part no, for they share these same obsessions, fetishes, and fossilized dogmas as the leadership they so slavishly follow…right off the cliff.
