Meet Shah Jorjani

Madness.

Let’s take a look at some “movement” stupidity from several weeks ago.  I’ve been busy with the DifferInt analyses over the past few weeks, but will get around to evaluating Der Movement’ s more recent antics when I have the time.

We can start with the following.

Since Greg Johnson quoted excerpts from Jorjani to, I presume, take another swipe at Spencer, let’s take a closer look at some other points Jorjani has to make.  When you read this, please remember that Jorjani has been taken seriously by BOTH Johnson and Spencer; he’s spoken at Counter-Currents events, and he was high in the councils of the Alt Right corporation (never mind Arktos).

….Croatia is a part of Iranian civilization. During Tito’s rule, which imposed a Slavic identity on all of Yugoslavia, scholars were actually prosecuted, imprisoned, and even tortured for researching and writing about the Iranian origin of the Croatian people. Specifically, they are part of the Scythian branch of Iranians – cousins of the Persians who rode deep into Europe.

Yes sir, Croatians are actually Iranians with a dastardly fake Slavic identity.  No doubt – no doubt whatsoever! – population genetics studies will place Croatians right there with Iranians and distant from those alien Balkan Slavs!  And if such studies don’t yield that result, then, by golly, it’s the ghost of Tito imposing an anti-Promethean contamination, falsifying the genetics!

Steve Bannon was known to be a reader of Arktos books and Michael’s plan was to send me into the White House to cultivate a relationship with Bannon, and through him, to influence President Trump. My main reason for wanting to have such influence was to help determine Iran policy.

As the Iron Sheik used to say, “Iran number one!”

…the funding for a capital investment that would have established me as the majority shareholder of the Alt-Right Corporation…

Very, very, very carefully consider the ramifications of this delusional Persian supremacist intimately involved with the Alt Right, a “movement” ostensibly representing the interests of indigenous Europeans.

This is about the reorientation of the trajectory of geopolitics in the Middle East, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. It is about aborting a Renaissance of the Persian Empire…

And at the heart of this world historical mission is…Jorjani.

Except that we are not Germans. 

No, you’re not.

Through the Scythians (i.e. the Saxons) and the Alans, we lent the Germans and Goths our Faustian (i.e. Zoroastrian) genius and chivalric spirit but those northern Barbarians never understood the essence of our cosmopolitan humanism.

Err…isn’t “cosmopolitan humanism” the very thing all the grand “traditionalists” of the Alt Right allegedly oppose?  Cosmopolitan humanism?  What would Evola think? Savitri Devi?  Oh, the Kali Yuga of it all!  The men who can’t tell time!  The Age of Iron!  Oh Guenon, where are thou?

Al-Ahwaz and a Kurdish nation have nothing but Sunni fundamentalism and barbaric tribalism to offer the world, whereas our Persian civilizational heritage has not only held Iran together for centuries it has, repeatedly, offered all of humanity the best chance at forming a world order based on innovation, compassion, and social justice.

Social justice?  I guess that goes along with all of the “cosmopolitan humanism.”  How about multiculturalism?  The wonderfully cosmopolitan Persian Empire was multicultural, no?  Let’s have the Alt Right fight for multicultural cosmopolitan humanist social justice!  

We know that you do not really have a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” You are oppressed by a rogue dictatorship. Rest assured that after we liberate ourselves and secure our future, we will bring the ever-living fire of true freedom to your bountiful continent as we once brought it to Greece. Far be it from us to leave your resistance movement in the hands of the Alt-Right or comparable culturally impoverished and regressive reactionaries. We are coming to save you, America. So speaks the living spirit of Xerxes, King of Kings, Light of the Aryans…

Once again, both Johnson and Spencer think/have thought that this Jorjani is someone that needs to be seriously listened to, someone who needs to be high in WN councils.


The essential problem here, I believe, is the strong need, the strong desire, the strong craving, of the Far Right for affirmation and approval.  And when such affirmation and approval comes from someone with some sort of credentials, such as Jorjani’s academic status, then the craving becomes too intense to resist.  Caution is thrown to the winds, which is one major reason that the Far Right is so easily infiltrated, betrayed, hobbled by defectives, and infested with all sorts of bizarre flotsam and jetsam.  Further, since most in the Far Right lack any sort of formal scientific training whatsoever, they are unable to distinguish between what’s valuable and what’s not (hint: the HBD cult falls into the latter category).  Therefore, someone with a solid scientific background would have been less apt to become impressed with Jorjani’s esoteric techno-babble, and would have looked with prudent skepticism on taking anything else the fellow had to say seriously.

When oh when will the Alt Right darkness be dispelled from the land so that sane racial nationalism can come into the light?

A Tacit Admission That Sallis Is Right

Quota queens on parade.

I recently commented on how Der Movement’s sick embrace of the evil and anti-WN Derbyshire can be at least partially explained by the “movement’s” strict and fervent practice of affirmative action.

…it does not explain the fervor with which Derbyshire been embraced, and the alacrity by which Sallis has been, in contrast, blacklisted.  Thus, second, I must invoke the “movement’s” affirmative action program.  Derbyshire – even with his Chinese family connections – is “one of the boys” so years of extreme anti-WN activism is breezily dismissed…

I didn’t think I would be proven right (again) so soon, but Der Movement never disappoints.  Thus, an activist now describes, on an Alt Right blog, meeting Derbyshire at a conference, and why it was such a big thrill; excerpts, emphasis added:

As a hopeless Anglophile, meeting John Derbyshire was a high point for me…With a glass of red wine in tow, he was most cordial and gentlemanly, a fountain of learned insight and witticisms…On the Anglophile theme, I was able to touch base with Peter Brimelow…

That’s the viciously anti-WN “latrine flies” Derbyshire and the panhandler Brimelow, who is one of several individuals primarily responsible for foisting Derbyshire on the rest of us.  But, but, but….they’re English….

Do I ever get tired of being right?  In a word: NO.

Another Alt Right Infiltration

More extreme vetting I suppose.

Read this.  Excerpts, emphasis added:

Back in January, I e-mailed Dr. Greg Johnson, organizer of Northwest Forum, Seattle’s hottest closed-door white nationalist convention, asking for an interview on the latest in regional racism. He turned me down….Also thanks to the internet, it only took me about an hour to change my identity from David Lewis, Seattle historian, to Dave Lewis, Neo-Nazi film editor and aspiring book critic from Charlottesville, currently living in Los Angeles. This Dave Lewis has never been to Seattle, but has always wanted to attend Northwest Forum.
My film editor persona dangled a giant chunk of cheese in front of Dr. Johnson. In addition to being a racist, Johnson is also a huge cinephile who has published two books of “pro-white” movie reviews wherein he rants against Zootopia as “pure evil” but surprisingly enjoyed 8 Mile. The role of film editor also worked to my advantage because, despite a recent fundraising spike, the white nationalist movement still has a hard time attracting people with artistic or technical talent.
Dr. Johnson bit the cheese. 

If I wrote this as parody, I would be accused of taking cheap shots with juvenile mockery.  Unfortunately, this is not parody; it is reality.

Entry into Northwest Forum typically requires “extreme vetting,” which means meeting in person and getting a beer with one of the Northwest’s white separatist organizations like True Cascadia. But I didn’t even have to send in a photo after mentioning that, as a Charlottesville native (actually from Ballard), I was writing an essay titled Tear Down Lee and Put Up Lincoln: Abraham Lincoln, World’s Greatest White Nationalist. 

Another transparently flimsy “resume.”  And he got in without being Swedish: Good work, David.

Just to scrub out any doubt, I was also carrying a copy of the 1958 Neo-Nazi classic The Lightning and the Sun. 

Worse and worse…

Upon entering, a woman who looked like a grizzled waitress from a black and white movie hit me up for a $40 admission fee (not mentioned in my invitation). 

More panhandling.

Virtually every time I use the word “Nazi” I’m using it as an insult. In the world of millennial white nationalism, there aren’t a ton of people who actually self-identify as Nazis. Despite usually agreeing with everything the Nazis did and believing the Holocaust is just “anti-white propaganda,” they always claim a technical reason for why they aren’t “National Socialists.” 

No, they’re “ethnonationalists” and “HBD race realists,” you see.

When not fighting for the white ethno-state, Dr. Johnson lives an extremely NPR lifestyle filled with world travel, visits to art galleries, and opera. 

As I’ve previously written, most of the “movement” leaders live better than do their donors.  Keep on sending the money!

People attend the forum to meet the visiting blue chip racists that Dr. Johnson flies in. Notable guests have included Identity Evropa founder Nathan Damigo and anti-semitic professor Kevin MacDonald. The forum I attended featured Jared Taylor, founder and editor of the online white nationalist magazine American Renaissance, fresh from his VICE interview with Eddie Huang. One of the world’s leading advocates for scientific racism…

HBD is not “scientific racism.”

Taylor is unique among white nationalists in that he believes East Asians to be objectively superior to whites. 

It’s interesting that an anti-racist infiltrator noticed something that Far Right activists get criticized for mentioning.

Speaking of Hitler, while at the bar getting coffee and Top Pot donuts, I noticed Seattle’s Hitler tea-pot guy, Charles Krafft…He has become a staple at Northwest Forum, known for holding before-parties at his house, which he rents from a Chinese-American landlord.

Don’t forget: that’s an objectively superior Chinese American landlord.

The only local voice for white separatism was the laughably uncharismatic Harold Covington of Northwest Front, who according to Krafft, asks people for money immediately upon meeting them. 

Now, that’s a genuine “movement” activist.  The new symbol of American White nationalism: a tin cup.

Enough mingling! It was time for the speeches on the second floor. Dr. Johnson announced that everything we were about to hear was totally off the record and not to be shared with anybody outside our circle of racists. Did this mean I would have to turn off the tape recorder that had been running in my backpack for the last 3 hours? Better not ask.

I mean, you just can’t make this stuff up.  By the way, all you donors are paying for this.

Speakers encouraged followers to take the Gandhi approach and continue getting punched in the face a la Richard Spencer. The media will have no choice but to turn to its side, their reasoning went. Taylor, Dr. Johnson, and the other speakers are all pretty married to this strategy.

That’s grand strategy on a world historical scale.

I was never more aware that I was dealing with Seattle racists than when it came time for questions and people were asking the same kind of self-righteous, rambling, statement-questions you encounter at Town Hall. One of the questions came from an East Indian-Canadian. 

Hey!  That’s an Indo-European Aryan.  Didn’t the good and great Savitri Davi marry one?  The Lightning and the Sun, indeed.

My interest picked up when Dr. Johnson, seated on a Masonic throne, announced that we would all be going to dinner at Buca di Beppo. When I called one of my emergency contact friends about the change of location she said, “Buca di Beppo? Do Nazis need to carbo load?”
He’d reserved two large tables and a smaller one for the duds. Showing up late, I got stuck at the dud table along with the Wise Old Man, a 91-year-old Holocaust denier who went to Hollywood back in 1952 for a songwriting career. When that didn’t work out, he started waving anti-Israel signs at the Oscars for the next 40 years. Krafft was really wowed by him, but nobody else cared.

Remember, dear reader, when your “leaders” pontificated about the need to eschew defectives?

“That movie Hidden Figures was bullshit,” a guy dressed like John Goodman in The Big Lebowski said out of nowhere. “We never went to the moon, Stanley Kubrick faked all of it.” 

And there you go: rampant freakishness, conspiracy theorizing, the flotsam and jetsam of an alienated society embraced.  All these Alt Right types like to compare their superior White Nationalism 2.0 to the old White Nationalism 1.0; I can tell them that their meetings today exhibit no better quality of attendees than the ones we were doing twenty years ago.

John Goodman then continued with a whole range of conspiracy theories from Waco, to the Bible, to how TV broadcasts were designed to give him anger issues.
Twenty minutes after we finished eating, it was time to go and the Wise Old Man looked around confused. “When is the food coming?” He can remember all kinds of Zionist conspiracies, but he can’t remember that he ate 15 minutes ago.

No comment.

At the time, I didn’t realize I wasn’t the only undercover reporter at Northwest Forum. 

A tipping point eventually will be reached: there will be more infiltrators at these meetings than genuine activists.

At the June forum they’d let in a much better looking, better funded, Antifa activist all the way from Sweden, equipped with James Bond-quality cameras and sound equipment.
…white nationalists who want to take over America but can’t screen out reporters…

And with that, we end analysis of this fiasco.

Der Movement marches on.  Remember dear reader: you are paying for this; you are supporting this.  In the last analysis it is your fault. You can end this nightmare overnight.  You choose not to do so.  

Enjoy.

Der Movement in Der News, 10/26/17

More nonsense.

Nihilistic hedonist Roissy, a self-admitted race-mixer who has chronicled his sexual adventures with Negro and Oriental females, tells us that:

Hillary Clinton is going to jail

Maybe she is.  Who knows?  But we can ask, which is more likely to happen first: leftist harridan Hillary Clinton going to jail, or leftist cuck Donald Trump being impeached?  A close call, I think.

And then we see this:

Counter-Currents now has a new shopping cart system, and the best way for us to debug it is for you to put items into your cart and buy them.

Let’s give credit where credit is due: these guys certain are innovative when it comes to thinking up new ways of getting “activists” to give up their hard-earned money.  Help to debug our system by buying our stuff!  One hopes Brimelow is paying attention; the opportunities for VDARE to adopt similar tactics to keep all the Happy Penguins comfortable on their leafy New England iceberg abound.

Do listen to that podcast.  Is it because it is well done?  No.  The personages discussed, or doing the discussing, are important?  No.  The events described are of significant impact?  No.  Instead, because it is yet another small spotlight that illuminates the madhouse of Der Movement, and how the potential of the Trumpian chaos is being wasted.

Some questions.  Isn’t this Chapman the same “based stickman” that the Alt Right was telling us, not so long ago, was worthy of our awe and admiration?  Aren’t these civic nationalists thugs, in their own way no better than Antifa, representative of the same Alt Lite that certain Alt Right leaders were telling us, not so long ago, that we should be in a “big tent” alliance with?  And do you remember what Far-Right dissident (hint: see this) was telling you, correctly, that the “big tent” was a bad idea, and that WNs should have nothing to do with the Alt Lite?  And aren’t all these people – Alt Right as well as Alt Lite – the same who go to rallies dressed up as if they just came out of a cosplay convention, and that after telling us we should eschew “fascist” uniforms because such are “un-American” and would “turn off the normies?”  Given that American rightist populism has an established history of uniforms (e.g., the Silver Shirts), and given that the comic book characters these cosplaying Alters dress up as are for the most part Jewish creations, which is more “un-American?”  Do you think that “normies” will follow men dressed up like Captain America or Batman?

Der Movement in Der News: 10/21/17

It’s…Der Movement.

Consider this comment from a prominent Alt Right leader:

Spencer in Friberg [sic] are in a pickle here, because anything negative they say about Jorjani immediately raises the question: “Then why did you associate with him?”

Just substitute Johnson and Brimelow for Spencer and Friberg, and substitute Hermansson for Jorjani, and the statement has the same validity.

I’m not taking sides here.  A pox on BOTH your houses.

If you wonder why the “movement” rank-and-file supports failed leadership and enables an affirmative action policy, then consider what that rank-and-file consists of. Der Movement marches on.

Outsourcing panhandling:

Greg asked me to pen this week’s fundraiser update to bring a fresh voice and perspective.

This is an interesting, useful, and truthful analysis.

But we should turn the tables here.  Revenge and domination – really, revenge, since as separatists we don’t want to dominate others – can be motivating impulses for our side as well.  I remember an incident from my analog activism days; an older activist was explaining to a group of us younger fellows why he was an activist.  I paraphrase from memory:

Save the White race?  That bunch of losers?  The White race, today, is nothing.  Nothing.  I’m interested in REVENGE – revenge against the Jews and the others who are responsible for making Whites – MY race – into the losers that they are.

At the time, I thought this fellow – who was an “extremist” even among us racial nationalists – was a nutcase; today, two decades later, I have to admit that fellow was basically right, and we more moderate Nutzis were wrong.  It seems I’m getting more extreme with age, which goes against the mainstream paradigm.

I understand that “negative” comments like revenge go against the “oh, we really love everyone” meme that “movement” leaders have been trying to peddle to the mainstream.  But, hey, maybe the “youth culture” of the Alt Right would be more amenable to harder-edged memes.  Sure, the hard edge is not for the masses, but for the rest of us?  Why not?  But a hard edge doesn’t mean stupid ‘acting out” as described in the Florida link above.  It means instead highly disciplined behavior to overturn the System.  Winning is the ultimate revenge,

Sheer Madness

Madness.  Madness.

These days I try and avoid linking to either side off the Alt Right feud, Counter-Currents or AltRight.com, but I figure no one would believe me if I talked about this without giving a link.

Johnson in blockquotes with plain font, Jorjani in italics.  Some relevant excerpts:

…I want to focus on some of the truly amazing background details that Jorjani gives linking his work with the Iranian Renaissance movement and the Altright Corporation to a shadowy network of power-brokers and influence agents with connections to business, politics, and secret societies that people today loosely call the “Deep State.” 

Among the figures that Jorjani names are Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, who served briefly as President Trump’s National Security Adviser; Walid Phares, a Right-wing Lebanese Maronite Christian who has advised both Mitt Romney and Donald Trump on Middle East affairs; former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon; Michael Bagley, president of Jellyfish, a private intelligence firm, and former intelligence director of the infamous Blackwater/ Xe /Academi mercenary company (founded by ex-Navy SEAL Erik Prince, brother of Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Secretary of Education); and a mysterious London-based figure Jorjani refers to only as “X,” a fellow based in some sort of secret society with tentacles in many pies, including the White Nationalist London Forum, Iranian exile groups, billion-dollar petroleum deals, and overthrowing the government of Venezuela…

…To sum up: the London-based X and his associates control (in some shadowy, unofficial way) or at least influence the Blackwater-linked private intelligence firm Jellyfish. General Michael Flynn, who became Trump’s first National Security Adviser, worked unofficially for Jellyfish while crafting Trump’s policies for Iran and the Arab world. Another unofficial Jellyfish associate, Walid Phares, holds no official post in the Trump administration, but he is supposed to be the “shadow” Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson being a mere figurehead. Jorjani and his Iranian Renaissance associates hoped to use these connections to shape Trump’s Iran policy.

Let’s hear a bit directly from Jorjani here:

Together with X and Michael, a plan was hammered out to secure my position as the leader of the Alt-Right by creating a corporate structure that unified the major institutions of the movement, in both North America and Europe, bringing Richard’s National Policy Institute think tank together with Daniel Friberg’s European Arktos publishing house, and the Red Ice Radio and Television network founded by Henrik Palmgren. A major investment would allow me to become a majority shareholder both in this new Alt-Right Corporation, and in its would-be subsidiary, Arktos Media, replacing Daniel Friberg as its CEO. . . .

The funds for this investment into the Alt-Right Corporation, through yours truly, were going to be secured through a multi-billion dollar black budget for a classified project to be implemented by the Trump Administration. That project involved the construction of a vast constellation of “micro cities” in North Africa and Western Anatolia to contain the flow of migrants from the Islamic world into Europe, and to act as resettlement areas for illegal immigrants expelled from European countries. . . .

Back to Johnson:

There you have it. Jason Jorjani created the Alt Right Corporation, which aimed to somehow consolidate three of the most important Alt Right entities — Richard Spencer’s operations (Radix, NPI, Washington Summit Publishers), Arktos Media, and Red Ice — under a single corporate structure. He created it at the urging of a Deep State duo, Jellyfish president Michael Bagley and X, an international man of mystery. 

Here’s my hypothesis: If I wanted to harm the Iranian Renaissance movement and promote the neocon Iran agenda, I would try to destroy the Iranian Renaissance’s credibility by connecting it to something marginal and highly stigmatized like the Alt Right. 

Or how about the other way around – destroy the credibility of the Alt Right – which has unfairly taken on the mantle of “the movement” – by linking it to Jorjani’s Iranian ranting?

In closing, I must stress two things.

First, I am simply offering a hypothesis that makes sense of the statements revealed so far. I actually hope I am wrong. I actually hope, for example, that Bagley and the mysterious Mr. X really are on the right side, not promoting another catastrophic war in the Middle East, in which Americans and Iranians both will suffer and die for the benefit of Israel and the Saudi monarchy. Right now, we have nothing but a few astonishing statements, a lot of questions, and a little guesswork.

Which leads us to point two: we need more facts. Indeed, there is enough in this story to keep a team of investigative reporters following leads, digging up information, and dominating headlines for weeks. For starters, all of Jorjani’s statements need to be corroborated. It seems, however, that our “serious” journalists are more interested in combing Harvey Weinstein’s fat folds for missing starlets — which just presents the alternative media with one more enormous opportunity to scoop the mainstream.

Oh yes, more information is needed, indeed.

But, regardless of the outcome, this (predictably) is another disaster for Der Movement:

1. If any significant portion of this is true, it shows you how bizarre this whole enterprise and all its freakish players are and, more importantly, how easily leading Alt Right figures can be manipulated by the Deep State, led by the nose by promises of money (of course), access and influence, and, perhaps most psychologically compelling, ostensibly important people taking the Alt Right seriously.  Are these your “leaders?”  Are these the people to whom you would entrust “the movement” that is (for now) – like it or not (and I do not) – the only existing vehicle for actualizing pro-White interests?

2. If any of this is significantly true, then what does it say about Jorjani’s character that he is publicly wring about it for all the world to see?  Worse: what does it say about ALL the major factions of the Alt Right who, at one time or another, took this half-Iranian prima donna seriously?  Who trusted him?  Who even today say he has credibility?

3. If, on the other hand, much or all of this is delusion, distortion, or dishonesty, then again – what does it say about the Alt Right that they raised Jorjani high in their councils and made him an integral part of the currently predominant faction of American White nationalism?


In response to skeptical commentators, Johnson writes:


Jorjani’s story now is the same story that he told his prospective partners in the Alt Right corporation when the whole thing got started.


To be fair, that is sounds consistent with some of what the AltRight.com crew were saying about Jorjani after he broke with them: that he had made all sorts of promises of money and support that never materialized.  So, while we don’t know what really happened behind the scenes, one cannot dismiss Johnson’s comment as just his usual anti-Spencerism. So, again, back to my comment #3.  And a commentator at Counter-Currents writes:

Jason Jorjani strikes me as seriously self-aggrandizing and self-delusional. In his article, The Coming Persian War, he writes: “We lent the Germans and the Goths our Faustian (i.e. Zoroastrian) genius.” Yeah, right. The Western Faustian spirit is actually Persian (i.e. Zoroastrian) in origin. Give me a break.
He continues:”Rest assured that after we liberate ourselves and secure our future, we will bring the ever-living fire of true freedom to your bountiful continent as we once brought it to Greece.”
The Persians brought freedom to Greece? Read Herodotus. The Greeks were fighting to preserve their freedom against the despot Xerxes who was seeking to put his yoke on them.
Follow the money. For all of Jorjani’s fanciful tale-spinning, no actual cash was produced. None. Jorjani’s tall tales have as much credibility with me as the amount of cash that ended up being actually funneled to the Alt-Right. ZERO.


Alright then, once again I stress: in the last analysis, it doesn’t matter if Jorjani’s tales are absolute truth or absolute fantasy.  It does matter that this Persian supremacist, with all his strange ideas, was initially embraced by the Alt Right.  After all, he was making similar comments to this when he was part of the “Alt Right corporation.”  You just can’t make this up folks; truth is stranger than fiction.


And in case it sounds like I’m picking on the Alt Right corporation here, Counter-Currents doesn’t have “clean hands” here either.  First, Jorjani was a speaker at their private meetings, smoothing the way for his entry into the “movement.”  Second, and more importantly, consider the following.  When the Hope Not Hate infiltration was going on, the attitude of Jorjani – by that time with Spencer-Friberg and having thrown Johnson under the bus – was this (from Hope Not Hate):

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.”


But that was then and this is now, you see.  Now that Jorjani has broken with Spencer-Friberg, Counter-Currents now presents Jorjani as the equivalent of a bright-eyed innocent, just oozing with credibility.


You younger fellows may not know it, but this sort of thing has been going on “forever” in the “movement.” Yes, indeed, all the shifting alliances, people who vehemently denounce each other one day but then team up against another enemy the next day, the posing and posturing, the lack of dependability, zero accountability, the demands for loyalty from those who embrace enemies and scorn friends, the constant panhandling from the allegedly disinterested, the political backstabbing, the prima donna attitudes, the feuds…do you think it was in any way different, say, twenty or so years ago, when Pierce and Covington were going at it, and people were choosing sides?  Same story, just a different cast of characters. And you my friends are the types of people enabling it.  The “movement” rank-and-file also represents the same tired old story with a different cast of characters.

4. Therefore, ultimately I blame YOU dear reader – assuming that “you” are a typical rank-and-file “movement” activist – for supporting this motley crew of nitwits and nutcases.  You – the ones Jorjani called “White trash.”  You could end this nightmare overnight – if you simply withdrew your support from this amalgamation of quota queens, panhandlers, the easily duped, grasping strivers, defectives, fetishists, and folks so thin-skinned that the width of their epidermis would make an electron seem massive by comparison.

I blame you and you should blame yourself.

For shame.


* A comment that  students of the Third Reich could interpret on more than one level.

They’re Hopeless

They are incapable of learning.

An Alt Righter with sweaty fantasies about documented race-mixer Ann Coulter writes:

The Left thinks it has scored some recent victories by “infiltrating” our private gatherings and reporting on them. This includes the London Forum and the Counter-Currents-sponsored Northwest Forum. As Greg Johnson has already pointed out, all these infiltrators succeeded in doing was proving that we say the same things in private that we do in public.

The absolute cluelessness of Der Movement, it’s “rock stars,” and the pathetic fanboys of the rock stars, is stunning.  They still just don’t get it.  The fundamental take home lesson of the Hope Not Hate infiltration (no scare quotes necessary, you mendacious shill) is not what was revealed, or not revealed.  That’s not the point at all.  The point is what it tells us about “movement” “leaders” – feckless, mendacious, naive, with horrifically poor judgment, a complete inability to distinguish friends from enemies (embrace your enemies and give them the keys to the kingdom, “ban” your friends), freakishness (yes, let’s walk around in khaki shirts, drinking mead, blowing on Viking horns, and reciting poems in Old Norse), and the typical ethnic fetishism (“extreme vetting” vanishes when a Swede with a transparently flimsy cover story shows up).  Worst of all, the “leaders” cannot admit error, cannot take responsibility for what they have done, cannot accept accountability for their stupidity, but instead lash out at justified criticism and have shills write nonsense to defend them.  They’re hopeless. Hopeless.

But this infiltration has the potential to birth an even more important, and less obvious, unintended consequence (and this one is real Cunning of Reason stuff). After the infiltration of the Northwest Forum, the organizers have now decided to make these events public. Our movement already has annual or semi-annual conferences, such as AmRen and NPI. However, the vast majority of events are private, invitation-only affairs which rely on secrecy: vetting (sometimes none-too-successful-vetting, it seems), announcing the location at the last minute, etc. These infiltrations teach us that the way forward may be to end this practice, and make many of our events open to the public. This would make us more visible — more of a regular part of the social and political landscape.

That’s great.  If it is such a great idea, why weren’t the meetings public to begin with?  One must await how this new genius idea will work out. Who will be picked to arrange meeting security?  Tim Wise?  Noel Ignatiev? Antifa?  

Some will try and pass this all off as “the crazy and bitter Ted Sallis going on a tirade again.”  The fact is, I’m just as bothered – actually more bothered – by the reaction to the infiltration than the fact of the infiltration itself.  None of the primary victims have exhibited sufficient character to hold themselves accountable for what happened, or to even acknowledge how bad it all was.  Instead we get ‘spin” – the infiltrator was an effeminate nobody, inarticulate and forgettable (yet invited to give speeches and invited to assist in meeting vetting, and involved in “movement” activity for a year, meeting all sorts of “rock stars”), and he really didn’t accomplish anything.  Move on, move on, there’s nothing to see here.

Actually, the “movement” got lucky here, more damage could have been done if the Left was not so inept, and so navel-gazing that they thought that exposing some reasonable Alt Right viewpoints would somehow be a disastrous exposure.  The only disastrous exposure was to show how inept the Right is.

And, since I’m on this topic I’ll formally raise the following disturbing possibility: this incident is just the tip of the iceberg, perhaps even a distraction from a more troubling possibility indeed.  Perhaps Der Movement has its own Gerald/Bill Haydon (and maybe more than one) – not an infiltrator per se but an actual well-placed and deep cover mole.  Maybe one of the current or future “rock stars” of Der Movement is actually a dedicated anti-racist, well burrowed into the fabric of “movement” Nutzi antics.  Who knows what revelations there are to come?  Meanwhile, the run-of-the-mill “sincere” ineptness of Der Movement does enough damage.
