Hood’s Faith and Purpose

Analyzing Hood’s analysis

Read this. Excerpts, emphasis added:

Considering my long involvement in conservative organizations, I must start by clarifying something. President Ronald Reagan said shocking things about African leaders, even calling them “monkeys.”

Monkey see, monkey do.

Thus, I would like to say that I am not now, nor have I ever been, a Reagan conservative. I disavow “mainstream” conservatives and their offensive Reagan cult. After all, it’s important to maintain respectability.

Amusing.

What President Reagan said was very revealing. The federal government pushed integration in the South because it wanted to win newly independent African states to “our side” in the Cold War. In these particular remarks, Ronald Reagan was criticizing African delegates to the UN, who, in his words, were “monkeys” and “still uncomfortable wearing shoes.” They had voted to recognize Communist China and expel Taiwan from the UN, thus incurring Reagan’s wrath.

That’s the same Reagan who agreed to the MLK holiday and didn’t get rid of affirmative action at the federal level. Note that Reagan wasn’t wrathful about anti-White Black crime, but about voting about Taiwan. All Asia all the time.  Was Reagan a HBDer?

The federal government enforced integration at bayonet-point to win Third World allies. Freedom of association, property rights, and many Southern cities were destroyed — and we didn’t even get any allies.

Rewrite:

The race realists enforced HBD yellow supremacy at meme-point to win Asian allies. Freedom of association, property rights, and many White cities were destroyed — and we didn’t even get any Arctic allies.

Back to Hood:

In this recently revealed conversation, Ronald Reagan was talking to Richard Nixon. Jared Taylor always objects if I attribute motives to other people in my writing. 

Why?

Yet based on Richard Nixon’s recorded conversations over the years, I can safely say the President had politically incorrect views on many subjects. However, Richard Nixon also imposed anti-white racial discrimination, i.e. affirmative action, on the United States.

Nixon – one of the original “man on white horse” heroes.

Nixon’s personal views were far more extreme than my own. In one notorious conversation, he bemoaned the state of American culture with the well-known evangelist Billy Graham. Graham could fill stadiums around the country. The President of the United States and America’s most famous and influential Christian leader blamed cultural collapse on Jews. Yet these two immensely powerful men both agreed there was nothing they could do about it. In fact, they agreed they couldn’t even talk about it.

Bunker Syndrome – plenty of bigoted talk, but no action.

Forget the specific claim. 

It’s Amren after all.

What does this story tell us? It shows that ideology and education aren’t enough. “Red-pilling” people doesn’t necessarily lead to action. Just because somebody “knows” something, it doesn’t follow that he will do anything about it. Worse, sometimes somebody “knows” something but acts like he doesn’t. Cowardice, self-interest, and political gain are often more powerful than conviction.

That’s why metapolitics without practical politics is a dead end. Politics without metapolitics is a dead end as well. You need both the theory as well as the will and ability to actualize that theory into reality.

Many Republicans know demography is destiny for the GOP. They know how this movie will end.

After all, they wrote the script.

Look at their actions. Most oppose giving felons the right to vote. Most support Voter ID laws. These have the effect of reducing the Democrat vote.

Yes, look at their actions. Supporting mass immigration for cheap labor, opposing abortion of Negro fetuses, opposing White nationalism – these have the effect of increasing the Democrat vote.

What are elections anyway? They’re demographic contests. Each side tries to assemble the largest coalition. You increase the turnout of groups that support you and suppress opponent turnout. During campaigns and on Election Day, everyone believes in identity politics. Bill Kristol recently admitted, “We’re running a census every two years as much as an election.”

Many years ago, I was discussing my views with a well-connected Republican. “You know, I agree with you about the way this is going to turn out because of immigration,” he told me. “I’m a short-term optimist and a long-term pessimist.” He shrugged, as if to say, “There’s nothing we can do about it.”

A self-fulfilling prophecy.

They know, but they think demographic change won’t hurt their own careers. They may think they don’t have the moral right to oppose demographic change. What happens to the country in the long run is not their concern.

My friends often joke about my pessimism. However, that pessimism is short-term. I’m a long-term optimist.

We are going to win. 

You do not know that, and cannot know that.

We must have faith. It must be something completely unquestioned. It must be something as self-evident as your love for your children. It can never be subject to doubt. That’s the spirit required if we are going to get anywhere.

The problem is that being overly optimistic is just as destructive as being too pessimistic and giving up in despair. If you are so unquestionably convinced you will win – on blind faith – then why bother making sacrifices?  It’ll all work out!  Just have faith!

Yet we know “education” won’t lead to victory. Education, after all, is just a means. What is the end? What are the intermediate goals that we have for this movement?

Promoting yellow supremacism? Being front men for Jewish interests? Spewing HBD pseudoscientific lies?

One is that we must be an independent political force. Whether you want to call us white advocates, the Dissident Right, nationalists, whatever, we are not a political force right now. One proof of that is that we can’t even agree on what to call ourselves.

There was a time when we could. 

Absolute, raging bullshit.  Here comes the WN 2.0 gaslighting.

In 2015, the “Alt-Right,” a label even people like Mike Cernovich and Steven Crowder were claiming, was an independent political force. Donald Trump, an insurgent candidate opposed by the conservative movement and the Republican Establishment, was our vehicle.

This is the problem, Hood. All you “jump on the Alt Right bandwagon” guys completely ignored dissident voices like mine warning that the Alt Right would end badly and that we should not tie White nationalism to the Alt Right (as Johnson promoted). Now, guys like Hood engage in lying gaslighting, pretending that everyone on the Far Right was on the Alt Right train back then.  An absolute lie, and very convenient for avoiding accountability, eh?  Also – some of us were calling Trump a vulgar, ignorant buffoon; he was not my “vehicle,” liar.

What happened? By winning, we lost.

“We” didn’t win.  Trump won.  If Trump is, and was, a fraud then he is not, and never was, “we.”

President Trump was co-opted. When he became the incumbent rather than our wrecking ball, we were left in the cold.

He co-opted himself.

Steve Bannon said the Trump Administration’s “original sin” was embracing the Republican Establishment he had just defeated. President Trump has suffered from leakers, traitors, and saboteurs ever since. Ultimately, that’s his own fault, because personnel is policy. 

No kidding.

The Alt-Right’s response was to assert its independence by occupying space. That was what led to Charlottesville, something we can’t avoid talking about. “Unite the Right” backfired massively. I’m not scapegoating organizers. An independent review clearly proved that city and state officials wanted, and got, violence.

The organizers should have anticipated that.

Perhaps that demonstration was a chance worth taking. However, if it was a gamble, it was a gamble the Alt-Right lost.

And where is the accountability for that?  The Quota Queens just go on blithely forward.

Where does this leave white advocates today? When you are marginal, it’s difficult not be co-opted because of the desire for “mainstream” relevance.

Some believe we should align with Democrats such Andrew Yang or Tulsi Gabbard. 

Idiots like Spencer and Duke.

In truth, I support some of their policies. 

Reparations for Negroes?

Perhaps it is worth promoting these policies online.

Sure, go ahead. Waste your time.

However, it won’t be like the Trump campaign in 2016; you won’t be let into their rallies and you won’t find much support among their backers.

Because those candidates are anti-White, as are most of their backers.

There was a brief time when many supported Andrew Yang and tried to meme neon pink hats as a symbol of his campaign. The campaign, of course, disavowed it and that was that.

Gee…and who was it who said – from the very start – that this support of Yang was a bad idea and would end badly? Ted Sallis. But, hey, keep on following your affirmative action leadership.  Endless failure is very attractive, right?

Though I hate to say it, I think we are stuck with the GOP simply because that’s where our potential constituents are.

Perhaps – but quality, sane third parties have never been tried on the Far Right.

Studies indicate massive political polarization. Internal disagreements within the parties are disappearing. Members of both parties have a “racialized” view of the opposition. In one study, the authors found that race was the best predictor of attachment or hostility to a party. “Racial animosity, perhaps more than any other identity cleavage, has defined and structured American politics,” it concluded. Racial polarization mirrors partisan polarization.

How do we reach the GOP constituency? Frankly, with whatever ideas that work. Reaching the constituency is the important part.

American political parties, unlike European parties, are very “loose” ideologically. The platform is irrelevant. The GOP, in and of itself, doesn’t support or oppose anything. This is also why trying to “take over” random party positions isn’t very rewarding. The candidates are what matter. The party shifts according to what those candidates believe.

If that is true, then the imperative is to have explicitly pro-White candidates involved in politics, as I have been writing here for years.

We see this happening today. Within the past few years, President Trump has managed completely to reverse the position of Republican voters (if not Republican elected officials) on issues such as free trade and tariffs. Personality matters more than platform.

Yes, but, contra Johnson, if the Trump personality was pushing a Jeb Bush platform, he would have gotten nowhere. Both matter.

It’s going to take new candidates to change the political landscape. They will probably be people we don’t know about.

Certainly none of the comically inept “leaders” of Der Movement.

In 2013, “President Donald Trump” was a television punchline. Now it’s reality. Already, liberal pundits are fretting about a more competent version of President Trump coming along, someone who will deliver on the economic and national populism Trump hinted at.

Ultimately, that’s not under our control. There’s a more important issue than partisan politics. Our limited resources, time, and energy should be focused on building sustainable networks off-line, in the real world. Our primary challenge is economic.

No, the primary challenge is the failure of “leadership”- and that failure ultimately derives from the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action policy.

It used to be that our ideas were very hard to find. Now you can find them easily, even with deplatforming and demonetization.

It used to be that you paid a terrible social cost when you were associated with these ideas. That’s still true to some extent. 

Some?

However, I’ve found if you’re involved with this, you have more friends than “normal” people do, whose most meaningful relationship is either with Netflix or boxed wine. A recent survey found one in five millennials say they have no friends at all, with more than one in four saying they have no close friends. Among ourselves, if you get sick, if you get married, if you have a child, there’s a whole community that cares.

Laughable.  Der Movement is full of feuding lunatics who spend a significant amount of time attacking each other.

What’s holding us back is just money.

That’s absolute nonsense, a pure lie.  Der Movement has always had money.  Sure, that money is only a tiny fraction of what the opposition has. But it still exists, and the fact that the “movement” has squandered millions of dollars, producing nothing but endless failure, strongly suggests that if the “movement” did have more money then the affirmative action “leadership” would simply squander that as well.  You would just get more of this.

Hood’s argument is actually internally self-contradictory. If what is holding us back is just money, then that implies that we have everything else we need – including competent, imaginative, and strategic-minded leadership. But if we has such leadership, then they would have already built up sufficient infrastructure that would have enabled us to have the extra money we need. The millions of dollars I alluded to above could have been used to build the infrastructure that would have led to the sort of really big money Hood wishes us to have. Instead we have pictures of Brimelow and Derbyshire sitting on lawn chairs.

Media have the power to isolate and target individual activists so they will be fired. You can perhaps get another job, but that sword is always hanging over your head. That’s the main problem. If we can get past that problem, we will advance very quickly.

I’ve been saying for years that we need to defeat social pricing.  Good to see that Hood is just realizing that now.  Better late than never.  He should be asking why the Quota Queens haven’t made any effective attempt to deal with the situation.

It’s horrible, but “doxing” is forcing us to built networks and institutions that didn’t exist before. Maybe it must happen this way. There was no other way than the hard way.

Absolute nonsense.  Nothing stopped the “movement” from building these “networks and institutions” years ago, decades ago, as some of us were urging, such as what I said to Griffin in my interview with him.  Endless years, endless decades, completely wasted.

There are models to follow. Some groups are already providing jobs and resources to one another, becoming “anti-fragile.” Look at how Mormons work together. They have a network that operates for the financial well-being of everyone in the group.

Look at the Left. Worker-owned enterprises, syndicalism, the early unions, communes — these are all things we can learn from.

What I said to Griffin long ago:

The Nation of Islam may be an example of the kind of thing I’m talking about. It was founded in the 1930s, but it wasn’t until the early 1960s that most white Americans ever heard about the Black Muslims. They spent decades building a base of support in the black community by helping black people with whatever they were doing in their community. So when they started becoming vocal and white people in the early 1960s started saying, “Hey, these people are a problem, what are we going to do?” it was already too late. The Black Muslims were already firmly established and had become an integral part of black society. In a similar way, a white nationalist movement has to grow like a plant, with its roots firmly in the soil.

But I was, of course, ignored. I didn’t have the right “credentials,” so to speak, you know, what Spencer and Johnson have.

Of course, one obstacle is that we are spread out all over the country. You probably have comrades closer to you than you think, but you can’t openly organize because the media will target overt activists. Geographic concentration is necessary. The problem is that everyone thinks where he lives now is the perfect place for everyone else to go. Where we should gather is a debate we’ll need to have.

Need to have?  Future tense? For godssakes, this has already been debated for decades. All these Johnny-come-lately Alt Righters believe, with their solipsism, that the “movement” came into existence the moment they became “red-pilled.” How much effort was spent debating about the “Northwest Imperative,” over the years, for example?

We need to discuss these questions because what’s coming is occupation. We already live under occupation, but it will be more visible and physical in the years ahead. I’m not optimistic about President Trump’s re-election prospects. Whatever happens, he’ll be out eventually, and Texas, Florida, and Georgia will flip because of demography, and then national politics will essentially be over.

And why didn’t Der Movement take advantage of the demographic situation that existed up until that point?

At that point, our opponents will circumvent the First Amendment. Certain speech will be called “ethnic intimidation,” not deserving of legal protection. The most violent and threatening language towards whites will still be allowed. People won’t be afraid just to act or demonstrate; they’ll be afraid to speak or write.

Blame the Quota Queens for that, for wasting untold time and untold opportunities. Hood really should be speaking out against the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program, but that’s apparently a bridge too far.

How do we survive as a people? Too many are still in that 2016 mindset where we debate mass politics.

What we need to discuss now:

How do we ensure physical safety?

How do we earn a living?

How do we support the activists and platforms we still have, especially if we can’t use payment processors?

How do you ensure that when the journalists come for you and your family, you will have support?

We need to figure this out.

I agree 100%. I’ve been saying this for years. Even my interview with Griffin, so many years ago, touched on these practical matters:

I think the challenge is to heighten whites’ racial awareness—especially the sane, honest, hardworking, law-abiding whites—and convince them to form voluntary, private organizations in their own communities. These organizations would exist to do practical things. The problem now is you have racialist organizations and they say, “Join up and send us your membership dues,” and you get a little membership card and a newsletter once a month. But the members stay isolated and everything stays divorced from reality. We need racial nationalist organizations that help children with homework, and help old and infirmed people, and that clean up neighborhoods, and where everybody stands together when some outside force tries to push them around. Maybe these organizations could have youth auxiliaries.

As it is now, we have white people thinking, “What am I going to do? I have got to send my children to the local school and it’s full of minorities and they are going to be taught all sorts of nonsense and they are going to get attacked, and my neighborhood is deteriorating, and my life is going to hell.” An activist comes up to them and says, “Let’s go protest against the United States’ foreign policy in the Middle East.” That’s great, our foreign policy in the Middle East should be protested, but there is still the question of what is going to be done to help the person scratching his head trying to figure out what he is going to do about what is happening in his life. At a very basic level we have to protect ourselves physically.

Back to Hood: 

It’s been said good generals study tactics, great generals study logistics. All our conversations need to be about logistics. There’s work to be done in terms of ideology. 

You had better believe it.

However, if we don’t figure out the supply questions, none of it matters anyway.

I agree 100%.  The greatest ideology in the world will get you nowhere if your opposition can completely suppress expression of that ideology.

If James Fields had taken a left instead of a right two years ago, we’d be in a different world. Things can break for want of a nail. 

Also for want of real, merit-based leadership.

Instead of trying to predict what’s going to happen, we need to have people capable of acting when opportunities arise. People talk about an economic crisis, a military conflict with Russia or China, some unforeseen political development. It could be all or none of these things. We can’t predict what kind of crisis is going to come. We just know that one will.

I do think something is going to happen. The political system can’t contain the tensions that are building up. Many Americans speak openly about civil war. I think that’s extreme, but there are some parallels.

Before our first Civil War, it was the Southerners who were the nationalists. They were the ones who were the most expansionist, most patriotic, most warlike. John Calhoun was a nationalist when he started out in politics, while New England flirted with secession during the War of 1812.

However, control of the political system “switched.” The people who thought of themselves as being in control, who thought of themselves as being the real America, realized they were politically powerless. They headed for the doors.

If Hood really understood the dynamics of revolutionary change, he would be talking about Suvorov’s Law here.  But, alas, it is only at EGI Notes that you’ll hear about that.

What does American nationalism really stand for? Clearly, it stands for something. The Left sure hates it. Clearly, most white people still believe in America. We must articulate what Americanism really means in a more developed way.

It means nothing any more.  

This brings us to the most important question. What exactly are we doing here? In recent weeks, journalists and antifa have doxed people and cost them jobs and careers. We’re called evil, terrorists, or Russian agents. It’s a tough life, but this is the business we have chosen. 

To some extent, we are forced into this. You can’t simply hide and hope “they” don’t get you. Ask the students from Covington Catholic. Every week, it seems some poor unfortunate becomes the “Nazi of the week” after he is caught in a manufactured controversy. Racial consciousness can help you avoid these situations because you see them coming a mile away and can sidestep them.

Yet white advocates unquestionably lead a difficult life.

Especially after the Quota Queens squandered fortunes and decades in order to live off of “D’Nations” while accomplishing absolute nothing of value.  The only infrastructure built by them are Brimelow’s lawn chairs. So, yes, “white advocates” (stupid term) lead difficult lives.

I’ve read the journalists and sociologists who claim what animates us is the search for “meaning.” That’s like saying people are immigrating to America for a “better life.” 

Or John Morgan invading and occupying Hungary for a “better life.”

Has anyone ever done something to get a worse life? Of course we’re searching for meaning. So is everyone else. It’s a human universal.

The question is what meaning, what purpose?

Some may say the memory of our ancestors and the future of our descendants. I’d say it’s something even bigger. Journalists and academics have made “whiteness” into a social construct. They’re projecting onto us their own actions.

What is whiteness? Think of the protests when Apollo 11 launched. Black leaders said we shouldn’t be going to the moon while there was still poverty in America. Think of the anarchists who say beauty standards are fascist. Human achievement, greatness, beauty — all of these things are associated with “whiteness.” This is why so many non-whites celebrated when Notre Dame burned.

Racial envy.

I do think of our people as the torchbearers of the human spirit, the Faustian civilization, people who carry something essential that nobody else does. We carry light into the darkness, even into outer space. “People of light” seems appropriate.

Hood apparently hasn’t been to a local Walmart recently. “People of light!” “Destiny of angels!”  Four hundred pound land whales on motorized scooters – the torchbearers of the human spirit!

For me, I do this because it’s the way I justify being alive. If I didn’t do this, there would be no reason for me to exist. We’re people of light. This is our purpose and our faith is expressed through loyalty to each other.

Loyalty to each other should start with loyalty to fellow activists.  Good luck with that.

If Hood is unable to understand the real underlying problems with the “movement” and/or is unwilling to discuss them, then he is part of the problem.

Calling Out Der Movement’s Yang Gang

And the whole Man on White Horse Syndrome.

See this.

We have to endure this mangy Oriental preaching to us how grateful we have to be that his scabrous yellow family moved to the USA and blessed us all with their high, high-IQ.

Yang supports amnesty (with citizenship!), he supports the “Dreamers,” and he wants to increase the H-1B influx of Asiatics.  Yang is the GNXP dream come true, Asian cognitive elitists displacing Whites from the professions. Yang, an anti-White Asian (is there any other kind?), wants to pay off Whitey at the cheap, cheap price of $1,000 per month so as to convince Whitey to accept dispossession and a place at the bottom of the racial hierarchy, begging for handouts from inscrutable Orientals. And the moronic “movement” just loves Yang,  joins the “Yang Gang,” praises this piece of Asiatic filth, and they endorse him.

After all, he’ll give them a paltry handout each month – assuming that White “haters” are not specifically excluded.  Deplatformed from UBI – say it ain’t so!  The Eggroll disappoints!

Then you have the other hero, Duke, endorsing Princess Tulsi “Reparations for Negroes” Coconut.  I don’t know guys, you think that maybe anti-White non-White liberal Democrats with an axe to grind against Euro-Americans may not be the optimal candidates to endorse for the Presidency? Think hard now. Take your time; I wouldn’t want you to strain your brain cell (singular).

And that’s after the Trump humiliation, which they’ve apparently learned nothing from.  What next?  Maybe they’ll endorse Sharpton for President; after all, the good “reverend” really stood up to those “Zionist Jews” in Crown Heights, huh?

You can take a random collection of retards from your local Special Olympics and they would have more insight and judgment than the affirmative action misfits masquerading as “movement leaders.”

Keep on enabling them, you rank-and-file.  Rally to their aid when they have that tin cup a’rattlin’ – such as:

Realistically, that means that if Counter-Currents is going to continue to grow, we must cultivate a smaller circle of high-commitment, high-dollar patrons. I know you are out there. Until now, you have been part of a much larger donor pool, and you could take that into account when calculating your support. Now, we can no longer take that for granted. So I would like to talk to you about increasing your support to make Counter-Currents less vulnerable to deplatforming.

Open dem dere checkbooks, suckers!

Ol’ Humphrey was a real hypocrite:

…Wilmot Robertson argued that “demoralization” is a dire threat to populations. “If you are not permitted to utter or hear one good word about your own people,” he wrote, “then no matter how great your capabilities, you will be hard put to overcome the mental and physical paralysis imposed by demoralization.”

How about folks like “Robertson” demoralizing Southern Europeans?  Have dem dere swarthoids ever heard “one good word” about their “people” from Der Movement?  Or are we to agonize over those five foot tall superstitious greasers scurrying around like roaches?

By the way, anyone in Der Movement who is getting all excited over Reagan’s “monkeys” comments are morons – those comments were just blustering “Bunkerism;” Reagan did nothing positive for his White voting base (sound familiar?).

Trump and The Bunker Syndrome

A classic case.

First, read this.

Listen to this.

What a terribly shallow “take” on Trump.  Praising and supporting Trump’s stupid blustering tweets.  Yeah, man, all good stuff!  Meanwhile, as Trump is tweeting, the exact same failed countries are flooding America with immigrants, Antifa riots in the streets with impunity, while Trump’s DOJ persecutes rightists.

Spencer was 100% correct in his statements, but going to the Press is a mistake in general. Morgan at least admits that Spencer had a point. More importantly, being “in bed with the press” is bad when Spencer and Heimbach do it, but it’s A-OK when Johnson does it.  What hypocrisy.

Duke is “conspicuously successful” in his endeavors?  Are you mad, Johnson?  What? Jumping from one failed organization to another?  Fetishist books?  Gambling? The foray into politics wasn’t bad, but that’s it.

Johnson and Morgan agonize over “the State” and “the Government” not doing anything about Antifa terrorism, and mock Trump – but that’s exactly the point of why we should despise Trump and his empty bluster.

Trump embodies a classic case of The Bunker Syndrome.  He talks and talks, tweets and tweets, crudely blusters, but does nothing. His inaction is in perfect opposition to the image created to appeal to his naïve base and that which triggers the Left.

Now, the argument from the “movement” would be that while it is true that Trump is a useless fraud (they belatedly realize this now, years too late), his “outspoken tweets” embolden others to speak out. I argue otherwise.  What is the net effect of Trumpian bluster?  It is more Antifa terrorism (that he ignores), more deplatforming (that he does nothing about), more political correctness, more SJW hysteria, etc. And while that may be good for chaos and balkanization (and we can give Trump modest credit for inadvertently doing that) it also has the effect of intimidating and silencing Whites from speaking out. While the increase in chaos and balkanization is in theory good, it is so far only benefiting the Left, because the entire System – including the Trump administration – is enabling leftist radicalism while suppressing the Right.  If Trump were to level the playing field by cracking down on leftist domestic terrorism and by taking action against deplatforming, then perhaps his bluster would be useful for the reasons alluded to above.  But as it is now, his bluster only emboldens and strengthens our enemies; only they are leveraging the current chaos to increase their power.

Hey, he’s your God Emperor, right?  He’s stirred into action!

His justice department is going out of its way to continue to find people to prosecute for the Charlottesville picnic. But Trump is going out of his way to help a black guy in Sweden. 
What did I get for my vote? We can’t even chant fun things at his rallies anymore! SAD!

Gee…I don’t know…who was it exactly who correctly identified Trump as a “Negrophilic race cuck” and a “vulgar ignorant buffoon” BEFORE the election?  Spencer?  Johnson? Taylor? MacDonald?  Derbyshire?  Brimelow?  No…guess again.

The future of America.  Enjoy.  Trump is monitoring the situation!

And now for the world championship of stupidity: Gunga Din vs. Tyrone.

The absolute worst writer in the history of racial activism writes (emphasis added):

Until that day, I shall keep on contributing in whatever way I can to an ethics for my own tiny niche, but with a new task: Do not interfere in the creation and developments of allied modes of ethics. For example, ethnonationalists should not begrudge the HBD crowd their absence of teleology, nor should they get all autistically trad while the pick-up artists are busy plying their trade. Likewise, if you see someone exhorting men of average IQ to curb their ambition, do not wail and gnash your teeth about him being a contemptible prophet of mediocrity, as I unwisely painted Dostoevsky and as Vox hypocritically described Peterson. Rather, understand that dogs cannot be expected to have the ethics of a lion. Whereas the god of lions will reward dominance, victory in battle, and proclaiming that work stinks while your many wives bring you food, the god of dogs will reward fetching sticks, holding in your poop until you’re outside, and barking at outsiders. Both gods, however, are subordinate to Gnon, the impossibly ancient principle of survival. In the abyssal cosmological-level analysis, yes, we all ultimately pray to him. But here in Middle Earth, the world is full of lions, dogs, and many other animals, and each has his god to serve and a role to play

Middle Earth!  HBD!  Pick up artists!  You should read Lynn and Roissy while snug in your hobbit hole!  And if you occasionally and fearfully look out from your snug hole, out there in the forest, and see strange lights in the sky, do not worry. That’s only the Chinese, launching themselves into space, using the White Man’s technology to reach the stars, while White men cower in “Middle Earth” measuring each other’s cephalic indices with Durocher’s calipers.  An orc, an orc, my hobbit hole for an orc!

Shady Genetics

Disgusting.

Read this.  Emphasis added.

We talked with Morgan, who works for one of the major ancestry testing companies…“I only know of two times somebody wanted to be tested for being another ethnicity because they didn’t like that ethnicity. Both times, [they were] white people not wanting to believe they had black ancestors.” The first of these made an offhand remark that, “‘I’m hoping it will show people I’m not black.’ And not as a joke. He was serious.” The second customer was even less subtle: “He caught himself from saying the N-bomb. He said, ‘I want to know if any of my family are ni- black.’”

On the one hand, I find these stories of Bunker Syndrome customers hard to believe, but I suppose anything is possible.  On the other hand, you know, the ultimate purpose of a business is to provide a product to customers, not to mock those customers in an interview.

Morgan and his colleagues were caught between a rock and a really-want-to-mess-with-racists place. 

Excuse me, ”Morgan,” but get  off your high horse of mewling pathetic SJW-style conformist moral posturing, and try to understand that your role as an employee of a business is not to “mess with” your customers.  If this self-righteous turd believes what he does is so correct, why not name the company he works for?  After all, what’s wrong with “messing with” “racists?”  Be proud!  Own it. Name the company please, so all potential customers know what they are getting into.  Full disclosure of business practices and all that.

It would’ve been fun to throw a “10 percent West African” in there, but then they might have a pissed-off, dangerous person at their office, waving a gun. 

And that, to “Morgan,” is the only reason not to invent results out of thin air – his fears for his personal safety. With attitudes like this extant within testing companies, what confidence can we have in the scientific integrity of the results?  They may not add “10%” findings, but what about putting their thumb on the scale to “adjust” results?  Oh wait…

“Since we couldn’t do anything to the results (and we wanted to), what we did was add ‘[less than] 1 percent’ to each African category of ethnicity. 

So they do exactly that.

That way we weren’t lying, and they would both be wondering how much under a percentage point was. We always try to round to the nearest number because we sometimes hear about percentage points, but for them, we leave it open to whether it’s a one or a zero.”

So, essentially they admit that ~ 1% is statistically equivalent to zero.  That goes along with previous admissions that ~9% admixture levels are close to the threshold at which one can have any confidence that such “admixture” is “real” – and that’s not even getting into the issue of parental populations.

It’s a compromise that’s elegant in its passive-aggressive simplicity. 

Yes, real “elegant” and all.  Once again – since they are so proud of their elegant simplicity, can they simply – and elegantly – name the company that “Morgan” works for?  Inquiring minds want to know.

And it got a result. “The near-N-bomber wrote to us asking what that meant, and we wrote back that it meant it was under 1 percent. And we were not saying zero. Unless they got another test, that was going to bother them. 

Yes, indeed, bothering your customers is what running a business is all about, right?

Maybe they weren’t 100 percent Caucasian. I mean, they were, according to the results, but this way it leaves it open, and they’ll always be wondering.”

We are wondering what company “Morgan” works for. Why be shy?  Tell us, “Morgan.”

On Hatred, Trump, Happy Penguins, Etc.

Food for thought.  That’s Cheerios for Breezy Steve.

I’d like to address Johnson’s comments about “hate” in his fourth Alt Right historical installment, and, especially, I am interested in the thoughtful comment here.

Hatred is a powerful motivating force, and as the commentator says, hatred of evil has been part of the Western Christian cultural-religious tradition (for better or worse).  So, while I despite the casual bigotry of the Bunker Syndrome folks – who typically do nothing constructive for White interests – and also despite the “acting out” of the Type I Nutzi peanut gallery, there is a place for a healthy hatred in the activist toolkit.  I believe it is foolish to hate individuals based on race, ethnicity, etc.  On an individual basis, there are good and bad in all peoples and, personally, I have known some very good non-Whites and some despicable Whites (more often the latter than the former, but still, I have known both types).  However, in an integrated globalist world with more than seven billion people, you simply cannot make public policy on an individual basis. You need to deal with groups – large groups, and make judgments on groups.  And in my opinion it is certainly reasonable and healthy to hate groups when those groups deserve to be hated (and they do), just as it is reasonable and healthy to hate individuals when that level of hatred is deserved.  In both cases, I reject hatred just because of difference; instead, the hatred is due to harm that is done – and it is possible to hate a group for that reason, while making exceptions for individuals within that group. Those exceptions however, do not determine public policy.  On an individual and personal level, it may be unfortunate that racial separation would remove personally pleasant non-Whites and include unpleasant Whites.  But, again, you cannot make public policy on an individual basis when dealing with millions or billions of people.

As far as Johnson goes, my understanding of his background, based on things he has said in podcasts, is that he grew up in a White environment; if he had grown up in a Colored Urban Jungle, as others have, his views on “hate” might have been quite different.

Well, what do you know?  Sallis right once again.  Gee, what about all those gamesters literally getting all hot and bothered (one saying, “I have to change my pants”) about Trump sending troops to the border?  Apparently, the troops are there to help process the refugee applications.

Cuckadoodledoo!  

Face facts: Trump tricked all you starry-eyed worshippers. Trump is an ultra-far-left super-cuck, likely to the left of Clinton when it comes to actualizing immigration policy. Separate out the bluster and the tweets from the reality.

Sallis back in 2015: Trump is a fraud, a vulgar, ignorant buffoon, Touchback Trump who will his throw his White base under the bus at the first opportunity.

The Alt Right from 2015 to mid-2018: MAGA!  Trump!  The last chance for White America!  God Emperor!  Pepe!  Kek!  [cue heavy breathing]

MacDonald in 2018: I don’t know, about this Trump guy, I’m feeling I was, like you know, swindled or something.

Spencer in 2018: This Trump guy, he’s not, like you know, protecting his base of supporters, he’s just using them.

So, hey, “movement” rank-and-file: it’s your choice.  Follow the folks who belatedly realize three years later that their “last chance for White America” “God Emperor” is a fraud, or follow folks who realized it from the very beginning and warned you all, years before the betrayals came to pass. Of course, you’ll continue supporting and following the former, because, well, you know.

More of the same: Hood and Amren are only, like, three years behind EGI Notes.  Emphasis added:

President Trump has done nothing for us. No one is coming to save us….President Trump has done us an immense service, not by “emboldening” us or helping us in any concrete way but by so infuriating our opponents that they have shown their hand more clearly than ever. The other side now says openly that the political divide is a racial divide—and that we are an odious obstacle to progress. It remains only for us to wake up our side to this reality. This country is becoming more polarized, and the division of the past two years is just the beginning.

And on the recent election:

There are already signs President Trump’s coalition is shrinking. The Rust Belt that gave him a presidential victory tilted heavily towards Democrats this election. The crushing humiliation of some of the most “Trumpist” immigration patriots was so predictable that almost no one is even bothering to mention it. Corey Stewart ran on defending Virginia’s monuments, opposing gangs such as MS-13, and staunchly supporting President Trump’s immigration agenda. Congressman Lou Barletta was one of the most promising politicians in the country, once spoken of as a possible secretary of labor, where he could have been a leading voice in transforming the GOP into the “workers’ party” President Trump promised. Both men were defeated by lopsided margins.

Let’s compare that to Sallis vs. Johnson.

Sallis: Trump was humiliated.

Johnson: It was really a victory for Trump since he didn’t lose as badly as he could have,

Who is always right, and who is always wrong?

But, hey, rank-and-file: keep on following your “leaders”…right off the cliff.

Here’s the Happy Penguins once again using their children as props for their money-making enterprise.  What despicable low-lives they are.

Hey, Pete and Lydia: when your children are old enough, they can decide for themselves whether or not they agree with your views and whether or not they want their pictures plastered, for all digital eternity, on your VDARE website.  Until then, how about stop forcing your private life and your children into you activist activity?  Didn’t any of these people learn anything from the Derek Black fiasco?  Or the Prussian Blue disavowing?  You can’t force-feed beliefs onto White children in the current System. Other groups can do so.  Particularly, South Asian families in America, both Hindu and Muslim, do an effective job in making their children “toe the line.”  But, Whites are more individualistic and questioning, and the System puts enormous pressure on young Whites to conform (some Christians have some success here – but that’s for cucked, universalist Christianity – racialism is different).  Yes, you should do your best to teach the fundamentals of your belief system, and back it up with facts and your own consistent and honorable behavior, but you cannot force it – even using the children as props for your panhandling is going too far.

And thank Trump/Sessions for the fact you live in a nation in which Antifa is the new Stormtroopers and Gestapo all rolled up into one. MAGA!  Make Antifa Great Again!

Zman discussing fascism reminds me of that line from the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy BBC series:

Total ignorance of subject matter doesn’t bother Percy.

Just replace “Percy” with “Zman and his commentators” and you’ll get my point.

Bunker Syndrome Redux

An example of leftist hypocrisy as well.

Some time ago, I wrote about “The Bunker Syndrome,” an affliction that characterizes many Whites of rightist inclinations. You have White folks with healthy instructs about race and culture, but they are unwilling to actually do anything productive about it.  Rather than attempting to actualize their beliefs in the real world, and engage in activism, they’ll just spout some “bigoted” remarks, or “act out” in public, accomplishing nothing except making themselves (and others who share their beliefs) look bad.

Let’s consider this situation.  Yes, a New York lawyer named “Aaron Schlossberg” raises questions as to his ancestry – or should we say (((ancestry))) – but that’s irrelevant to the main issues at hand.  Ignore that Levantine possibility for the time being, and let’s look at this through the paradigm prism of “a ‘White’ person making rightist, politically incorrect comments.”

Now, the persecution of Schlossberg is wrong, but his behavior is a perfect example of The Bunker Syndrome – lots of loud “acting out” of “bigoted” opinions but no actualization of his views in the real world.  Indeed, we read, emphasis added:

The website for Schlossberg says he is a lawyer with a focus on commercial and insurance law and notes that he speaks Spanish and some French, Mandarin Chinese and Hebrew, in addition to English. His law office advertises that it can take phone calls in four foreign languages, an irony that was not lost on many commentators on social media.

If Mr. Schlossberg feels so strongly about the sanctity of public English speaking, then perhaps his law office should only have accepted phone calls in that language?  More to the point, if he feels so strongly about immigration, illegal immigration, immigration enforcement, rightist politics, and cultural preservation, then, instead of public displays of Bunkerism, he could have used his legal training to help those on the Right, instead of practicing “commercial and insurance law” for a “vibrant” clientele.  Even if he didn’t want to help any “anti-Semitic Nazis” there are those on the Right who would welcome him – indeed, the Alt Wrong would much prefer a New York lawyer named “Aaron Schlossberg” over some greasy low-IQ Afrowop or some Romanian dancing the hora (long may it turn).  Then there is the whole Alt Light, the Paleocons, and the Donald Cuck administration.  There’s a wide range of opportunities for someone with legal training to help the Right, instead of acting like a jackass in a restaurant.

This is the problem with all the “Bunkers.” They’ll say this or that but not actually DO anything productive in the political or metapolitical sphere to advance their beliefs.  In fact, their “acting out” typically has the consequences (apart from harming themselves) of delegitimizing their beliefs and generating (undeserved) sympathy for the targets of their ire.  They are not even helping to promote racial balkanization, since their behavior is a dead end resulting in the aforementioned sympathy for their targets, and embarrassment for those who share their basic beliefs.  There is no real “heightening of the contradictions” here.  That Black guy who walked into a restaurant with a MAGA hat and got harassed actually did more to promote balkanization than did Schlossberg yelling about calling ICE on some Spanish speakers.

In comment threads in articles about Schlossberg, one sees the typical leftist mantra that spews forth when anyone with rightist sympathies is subjected to oppressive social pricing: “free speech has consequences” and “free speech protections of the First Amendment only refer to a lack of government persecution and have nothing to do with private consequences” etc.  These same leftist hypocrites (redundancy) were silent however when Fresno State claimed an inability to discipline NEC land whale Jarrar due to…drum roll please…free speech and the First Amendment.  And keep in mind Jarrar’s antics not only included the public comments about “amazing racist” Barbara Bush but also the incident with the ASU hotline number.  Consequences for any of that?  Absolute zero. Consequences for Schlossberg expressing his private opinion in a private setting?  Kicked out of his office and having elected officials submitting complaints for him to be disbarred.  

There are some on the Left who call those on the Far Right “hypocrites” on the free speech issue because, as they say, “if you guys were in charge, you wouldn’t allow free speech.”  Of course, leftists accusing others of hypocrisy is breathtaking….well, hypocrisy, as well as an insane level of projection.  But as to the “accusation?”  Fair enough…if I were in power, I wouldn’t allow free speech for the Left; they would be silenced just as they now silence the Right.  But it is not “hypocrisy” because a Sallis State would not pretend to be a “democracy” with a “First Amendment” and would not engage in dishonorable cant about “freedom” to justify interfering with the sovereignty of other nations. A Sallis State would also not cherry-pick law enforcement nor would it engage in cowardly techniques of social pricing (also applied in a cherry-picked, inconsistent manner) in order to evade the letter and spirit of the law.

The Left does not respect freedom of expression in the context of a “democracy” centered on a “Bill of Rights” (and Europe is even worse).  So, why should they expect the Far Right to respect freedom of expression in a national socialist authoritarian state?  Are they delusional or merely retarded?

In any case: if there are rightist lawyers (or other useful professionals) out there, please learn from the Schlossberg case.  We don’t need more Archie Bunkers.  The Bunkers didn’t save America from being transformed and destroyed.  We don’t need you spouting off in a restaurant, we need you in a courtroom (or wherever your skills can be best utilized) advocating for the Right.

The Bunker Syndrome for 4/7/15

No translation into politics.
Opinion poll shows Americans, particularly Republicans, want more deportation and are against automatic birthright citizenship. And yet these same folks will eagerly flock to the voting booth to cast a ballot for the Bush family, John McCain, Graham, Rubio, or any other of the host of prominent GOP politicians who support amnesty and who advocate for hastened demographic change in America.
There is no way around it. White voters, White conservative Republican voters, are extremely stupid. And this is another “fail” for HBD, because whatever you want to say about the “IQ” of these voters, they are nevertheless practically stupid, dumb when it comes to defending their interests, defending their biological fitness.  They believe in X,Y,Z and then they allows themselves to be hoodwinked into voting for candidates vehemently against X,Y,Z.  If you do that, you can have a 160 IQ and still be dumb as a stone.
