Spencer and Johnson, 8/29/19

Comic relief.

First, Spencer.

I had to control my outburst of laughter over this.  That may be the most comically self-unaware tweet in the history of Twitter.  

A fundamental reason the Alt-Right is in such a pathetic state. Losers make a movement in their image.

Really, Richie?  You think?  Have you looked in the mirror recently?  Dear god…this is pure gold.  Gee, I don’t know…following up on Zman’s recent comment, can we think of any prominent Alt Right leader, considered the major representative of that “movement,” who had a large share of responsibility for running it into the ground?  Think hard now, Richie, think hard.  My only disagreement with Zman is that by focusing on you he relieves your brother in affirmative action Johnson of any responsibility as well.

Spencer is also under the impression because he screws NECs (Jews, Georgians, etc.), as well as SJW leftists, and has had  a “cute” Asian girlfriend, he’s a superior human being to the masses of his pimple-faced incel followers who sit in their parents’ basements jacking off to anime.  True enough, he is superior, at least in this sense, to the guys who engaged in homosexual sexual harassment of Pilleater at “racialist meetings,” but that’s not saying much, is it?

Now, Johnson.

Trump: A man of genuine greatness!

Read this. Emphasis added.

@McNeilJaden
 *every conservative is wiped from the internet*
Trump: “I am watching this closely.”

Yet Conservatism Inc. quickly captured the Trump Administration, especially after Steve Bannon left. Instead of focusing on immigration and trade, the GOP Congress and the White House spent their political capital on tax cuts and a failed effort to repeal Obamacare. 

Instead of President Trump transforming the conservative movement, the movement transformed him. The social media figures who championed his 2016 campaign have been kicked offline. Meanwhile, the conservative personalities that opposed him, from Glenn Beck to Ben Shapiro, thrive. With few exceptions, the conservative movement promotes capitalism, support for Israel, and tax cuts. These policies may be good or bad, but they aren’t what put the President in the White House. Not surprisingly, he’s trailing badly in most 2020 polls…

Hey, it’s almost as if Amren agrees with Sallis (and every other sane person) – and disagrees with Johnson – in that Trump won because of his policy proposals, not his jackass personality.  When will Der Movement ditch Gaslighting Greg?

…Some claim President Trump will win in 2020 because the Democrats have become too “extreme.” Yet who determines what’s extreme? Ultimately, those with media power. Through his inaction, President Trump has given his enemies a media monopoly…

…Donald Trump’s enemies label him “authoritarian” because he calls journalists “enemies of the people.” Yet he’s so weak he makes Jimmy Carter look like Alexander the Great. President Trump once noted that Twitter essentially gave everyone his own newspaper. That power is being taken away, but he’s done nothing. 

Note again:

Yet he’s so weak he makes Jimmy Carter look like Alexander the Great.

But he’s a man of genuine greatness, genuine I tell ya!

Get this.

That’s only to be expected, because we have the better arguments, and most of the civic nationalists are cringy, uncool, and obviously dishonest.

That’s opposed to Johnson.  His phone conversation with Pilleater is not cringy, his persona is not uncool, and his nonsense about the possibility of Trump being elected with Jeb Bush’s platform is not in any way obviously dishonest.

3. Leave YouTube and watch it burn. It was never realistic to think that we could overthrow the most evil system in human history on a platform owned by the most evil corporation in human history, and be able to make money off it at the same time.

Let me reword:

Leave Der Movement and watch it burn. It was never realistic to think that we could overthrow the most evil system in human history by a “movement” lead by affirmative action grifters and populated by sweaty fetishists who become sexually aroused by thinking about their animus toward particular ethnic groups.

Back to Johnson:

White genocide is real. The Great Replacement is real. That means that at the core of the anti-white system are people who are morally equivalent to Genghis Khan, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and the like. We were never going to defeat them from the comfort of our own bedrooms. 

Or from the comfort of your snug hobbit hole.

They see us as an increasingly serious threat. They are going to do everything they can to shut us down. If they want us all dead, logically they are willing to inflict all lesser forms of discomfort on us as well. YouTube was enormously useful to us, but it is owned by them, so of course they are banning our channels.

Of course they are.  And why didn’t you plan for that in advance?  See below for the answer.

Fortunately, they can’t get us off the world wide web without shutting the whole thing down. And they can’t shut it down, because their own global system depends on it.

That’s an oft-repeated Johnson argument, but I don’t buy it.

And even if they could get us off the web entirely, they are still going to lose, because the main force driving the rise of white identity politics and National Populism is the failure of globalization and multiculturalism. As long as the establishment keeps doubling down on globalization, degeneracy, and anti-white hate, they are going to drive more people in our direction — even if we are not around to help deepen their consciousness and suggest workable and morally defensible solutions.

Hail Victory!  Is it now, or 50 years from now?  Or 200?

And we will always find some way to hang on to some spaces online, so eventually we are going to win. 

As long as you send in those “D’Nations.”

Censorship and deplatforming will only slow us down. They will never defeat us.

No, you’ll defeat yourselves.

But nobody has deplatformed me from Counter-Currents because I own it.

Didn’t Polignano own a piece of it at one time as well?  Paging Friberg and Forney.

There are, of course, ways to attack platforms that you own. So far, though, every one of them has been tried on The Daily Stormer, and they are still online. Counter-Currents lost our webhosting company in the aftermath of Charlottesville, but we easily found another service and were not down a single day. None of the people who have been bounced from YouTube are as big a target as the Stormer, and if they have survived, you will survive as well.

As long as you have dem dere “D’Nations.”

Don’t get a site hosted by WordPress, Blogspot, or similar companies, unless you want to go the way of Heartiste. Reserve your own domain name and find your own hosting company. You can use WordPress software without being hosted on the WordPress platform. You don’t have to host your own videos. There are platforms to do that, and you will probably have to change them from time to time.

The main benefit of owning your own platform is psychological. It is liberating to have a place where you determine the rules. The most harmful thing about YouTube is not the outright cancellation of channels. It is the uncertainty of living under the tyranny of arbitrary censors, which leads some to self-censorship and outright paralysis.

Paying attention, Richie?

7. Promote freedom of speech and regulation of censorious tech giants. These are now the two most important political issues for the Dissident Right. We all need to give them at least some of our time and effort. Again, censorship will not defeat us, but it will slow us down. It will delay the day of victory. And every day victory is delayed is measured in white lives: whites who will die and whites who will never be born because of the Great Replacement. Thus every effort you put into fighting censorship and promoting freedom will save lives.

Paying attention, Richie?  What does it say about you that even Gaslighting Greg shows more sense?

8. Calm the tards. 

In other words, calm 99.9% of Der Movement.

9. Conspire together for a better world. A couple of years ago, I came to a rather sobering realization. As fond as I am of writing books and crafting arguments, I concluded that the most important thing I could do with my life is to help create a censorship-free, monetizable alternative to YouTube. And I don’t even like videos.

Such a site should be structured like YouTube used to be: to constantly expand people’s intellectual horizons. Such a platform could be curated to foster a cultural and political renaissance. 

As long as you curate out all of Der Movement’s videos.

And it would be good for the Dissident Right, because we win every fair and open debate. 

Yes, which is why you ban critics from commenting on your blog.

An additional benefit would be to stick a knife in the guts of the world’s most evil corporation, and twist it a few times.

I’ve slowly been putting together a vision and the necessary pieces to bring this project about. But you can’t do much without a consensus that an alternative is needed. If something isn’t broken, you don’t fix it. Such projects remain pipedreams without the requisite sense of urgency. But now YouTube is forcing our hand.

Right.  God forbid any of these heroes, with their supporters and fiscal resources, actually have the sense, prudence, and pre-planning (all allegedly strengths of their racially superior ethnies) to start the project BEFORE the problem occurs.  No, the attitude is – 

If something isn’t broken, you don’t fix it.

That’s the sort of foresight we must expect from our fearless leaders!

This is all followed by an appeal for “D’Nations.”  After all, how is Greg going to travel to all those Scandza forums?

Twitter and Free Speech

Hypocrisy of democracy.

The crazed leftist view on free speech issues is here:


Twitter has discovered what many proponents of democratic society already knew: censorship is not the opposite of free speech. In fact, so-called free speech can actually be used as a weapon to silence the vulnerable and dispossessed. Ironically, to maintain its position as a platform for free discourse, Twitter must censor its users. 

My first riposte to that stupidity is to state that the “vulnerable and dispossessed” are precisely those people who are having their speech silenced through Twitter censorship. 
And that’s not just an abstract and logical objection, and it is not merely specific to the Twitter case. In the “West” those groups alleged to be “vulnerable and disposed” – minorities of various kinds for example – are allowed to say and do whatever they please, they are allowed to organize in an identitarian fashion to pursue group interests, and their relative proportion of the population is increasing. Those groups – the majority for example, particularly heterosexual men – who are considered “privileged” and “powerful” are those whose speech is censored and in some cases criminalized, who are not allowed to organize on a group basis, and whose proportion of the population is, not surprisingly, declining.  Indeed, for the latter group, complaints about these issues are themselves censored, leading to a negative spiral of disempowerment.
That sort of puts into perspective “vulnerable and dispossessed” doesn’t it?
A commentator at that article expresses the following view (spelling corrected):

I am sorry, but that’s one of the most idiotic claims ever made in ars Technica. 

By definition, censorship is the suppression of speech, which makes speech less free.  

The so-called “hate speech” criteria are one of the reasons why the German and international media engaged in self-censorship about the Cologne sexual attacks resulting in unwillingness to properly report the events. 

In reality, the world isn’t one big liberal-arts college campus, you know?

And my own “free speech primer” is here.
Question: Should a White ethnostate allow free speech to its ideological opponents?  The answer is: no.  Yes, as I outline above, free speech is extremely important. But:

1. Those who deny free speech to others to facilitate the genocide of those others cannot expect the courtesy of free speech extended to them.  Their ACTIONS – not speech – have criminalized them. 
2. In a White ethnostate, any such people would either be no longer under the jurisdiction of the state or they would be put on trial and the slowly tortured to death as punishment for the crimes committed under the present regime. So, the entire question is irrelevant.
3. The sort of White ethnostate I envision and promote would not be a democracy and would not make a pretense of being one, or of hypocritically speaking of “freedom” while denying such freedom to its majority citizens.  It is the current regime – that bases its legitimacy on “freedom” – that has the obligation to free speech.  An openly national socialist regime has no obligation.

4. The only thing that trumps free speech is freedom of association, championed by a White ethnostate.  The current System denies its majority freedom of association, and uses censorship of speech as a weapon to silence opposition to that policy.

Moderating Comments

I prefer no comments at all.
Well, moderating is better than the “free for all zoo” that occurs with lack of moderation.  And, I believe KMacD when he says that he does not “censor” comments at his site merely because he disagrees with them.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about other sites.  Herein lies the problem with blog comments.  Comments with no moderation will destroy a blog and drag it into a sewer, and also leave it open to Sunsteinite manipulation (which also occurs on poorly moderated blogs as well). However, moderation leave you open to accusations of deleting comments that effectively refute your position, thus yourself manipulating debate by eliminating certain points of view.
In contrast, I pick the simplest option: no commenting.  Certainly, that incurs costs as well, but it is the most time efficient.
Of course, in the end, moderating and no comments are not “censorship.”  One is free to set up one’s own blog to assert one’s own opinions. A commitment to free speech does not carry with it the obligation to host all types of speech at one’s own site. A commitment to free speech, for example, does not obligate a Negro to have a Stormfronter come to the Negro’s home and spout anti-Negro remarks.  On the other hand, the Stormfronter should have the right to say whatever he wants in public, and on his own property, including on Internet sites.

Well, Well, Well: Mainstreaming Chickens Come Home to Roost

Mainstreamers are stupid and need to be ignored.
Other reports indicate that was on Viktor Orbans’s orders.  But, but, but…I thought Viktor Orban was an ethnonationalist superhero, bravely standing up to the anti-White EU elites on subjects important to European preservationism.  Could it be…that the “conservative” “nationalist” “mainstream” merely exploit nationalist sentiment for electoral purposes, to keep their “red meat” supporters happy and satisfied, while in reality kowtowing to the globalist elites, the EU, and the Jews?
No worries!  Why, I’m sure the mainstreamers believe that Marine Le Pen will offer to host the conference and give it her seal of approval.  Yes?  No?
Another indication that the Old Movement is full of morons and imbeciles, self-important folks whose time has passed.  If you keep on trying the same failed methods over and over again – choosing between conservative mainstreaming or neo-Nutzi Hitlerism, and keep on failing – you’d think that, eventually, one would wake up and decide a fresh start was needed.  But, no.  Don’t worry though. Just open up your volume of March of the Titans, Who We Are, or Raciology, dream about the glory days of “Nordic Hindus,” and all will be well.
