Countering Counter-Currents

In der news.

Greg Johnson:

Our movement is small, fragile, and easily demoralized. Allowing ourselves to become excited by transparent fakes only lays the foundation for another demoralizing failure.

Hmmm..ya think?  Maybe you guys can stop with the Man on White Horse Syndrome, including one “leader” (Who?  Who was it?  Who? Let us think real hard) breathlessly worrying that the new American Caesar Trump was going to make major improvements in American demographics, thus stabilizing the System and making WN more difficult in the long run.

Alert, alert: monumental lack of self-awareness.  And speaking of transparent fakes: Patrik Hermansson?  Dave Lewis?

And the whole Counter-Currents hostility toward Tommy Robinson is tiresome.  I could care less about Robinson, but that’s the point.  I’m not going to waste time going in that direction, either pro or con.  Is it that some folks get disturbed when the attention (and, hence, the shekels) flow away from them and toward someone else?

In Der News, 6/16/18

Some news.

Greg Johnson:

Mainstreaming is not the path to political success.

Indeed, it is not.  There’s more in the podcast attacking mainstreaming, none of which will surprise readers of this blog, since the crazed Ted Sallis has been making these same points for years, including at the time when Counter-Currents featured breathless podcasts of Johnson and Le Brun concerning Ms. Le Pen’s mainstreaming heroics and her electoral chances (and we all know how that turned out).

So, two lessons in all of this:

1. Mainstreaming is a recipe for political failure.

2. If you want to know the cutting edge of Far Right thought, read EGI Notes.  You’ll read here first what others belatedly realize weeks, months, or years later.

Rodney Martin’s good sense:

There is INSUFFICIENT Base Support (Resources) in the existing Political & Social dynamic to USE to build a Pro-White “traditional” political Movement that PARTICIPATES in the EXISTING System.
We MUST stand apart & build our own, they may mock us as the Masses mocked Noah as he built the Ark. But when the time comes, like Noah, we DON’T let them in.
We MUST understand that we will NOT build Mass Support and over take the EXISTING System.
We MUST give up on the temptation for instant gratification and embrace the virtue of patience, planning, preparing and building.
We MUST understand that NO ONE need know what we are doing.  Media whoring is a vice that has proved deadly.
We MUST ACCEPT that we will NOT take OUR Country Back, anymore than we can bring our favorite Grandfather back from the dead.
We MUST NOT be “Average Americans”
We MUST be a brotherhood without regard to perceived economic, social or  intellectual standing.   There can be NO “Classism”
We MUST ACCEPT the fact that NOT ALL “White People” are “White”.
We MUST REALIZE we CAN do MORE with LESS.
We must choose Quality OVER Quantity
WE DEFINE who we are by fully defining who we are NOT, and who we will NOT accept.
There is nothing wrong with the concept of our own “Community”, it has yet to be built.

Amren hero Seth Grossman.  He’s…HuWhyte!

Roissy whines:

Where is Jeff Sessions in all this? High treason occurs under his nose and…wtf is he doing about it? Waiting to pounce when the time is right? Jeff, the midterms are just months away; you don’t have much time left to make a move before a horde of screeching anti-American mystery meats and pussyhatters take the lower chamber.

Hey, I thought that “Sessions as Attorney General alone justifies Trump’s election?”  Don’t you know that “America’s Senator” is just doing what he does best: standing around helplessly looking dumbfounded?

It’s interesting how both Sessions and Giuliani, under Trump’s employ, represent ethnic stereotypes.  Sessions – so restrained he’s practically inert; Giuliani – bombastically undisciplined, rolling around like a loose cannon, shelling his own side as much as his opponent.

Movement Good Old Boy Mafia

One of the boys.

Notice the mention, and link to, Greg Johnson at Counter-Currents.  I am sure readers of EGI Notes can think of certain blogs dealing with race, science, immigration, politics, etc. that go unmentioned by Der Movement, Inc.  Now, you may argue, goodwhite Derbyshire can hardly be expected to link to blogs or blog writers who have been sharply critical of him.  It’s only natural.

That’s some low information moralizing, friends.  The following are some of Johnson’s characterizations of Derbyshire made at the Counter-Currents blog (emphasis added):

Derbyshire, by the way, is not a White Nationalist at all. He is a conservative cognitive elitist who is married to a Chinese woman and has two non-white children. Beyond that, he has attacked White Nationalists in the most scurrilous terms, referring to AmRen attendees as “latrine flies” and attacking Kevin MacDonald on the most swinish possible grounds. It is only when this sucking up to Jews and centrists failed to save him from the charges of racism that he began to associate with White Nationalists, who were all too willing to cross his palm with silver. Frankly it is disgusting that the donations of White Nationalists are being sluiced into the pockets of this opportunist.

2. RE Derbyshire. Yes, every dog should get one bite. But Derbyshire has been at it long enough to show his agenda. Of course, Derbyshire has “grown” a bit in recent years. At one time, he referred to Am Ren attendees as “latrine flies.” But he changed his tune after Jared Taylor crossed his palm with silver. He’s a fox in the henhouse, eating the lunches of genuine pro-whites.

I first learned of Derbyshire when he penned his critique of Kevin MacDonald and his defense of the craven philosemitism of National Review. That was all I needed to know. He is a loathsome individual, and I avoid his work completely.

You were saying?

Now, in actuality, I agree with Johnson that Derbyshire is a “loathsome individual” and I would go further and say VDARE is a loathsome blog.  They have an agenda that is not compatible with pan-European racial nationalism and therefore their behavior is to be expected.  However, the point is not that the Alt Wrong should be citing the genuine Far Right, the point is simply to demonstrate that there really is a “one of the boys” network – a “mafia” if you will – within the “movement” in which affirmative action recipients, despite harsh attacks against one another, will still consider each other “one of the boys” while those outside the quota system are not.  As Der Movement (hypocritically) likes to say about affirmative action when it is used by the System to favor Negroes and other Coloreds – affirmative action is corrosive of merit, of accomplishment, of quality. Endless decades of “movement” failure are thus explained.  That is the point.

More on Theranos

An example of the “wimmin” that post-wall harridan Melinda wants to fund with the money from Rick Moranis-look-a-like Bill.

Read here.  Excerpts and comments:

All of this can be applied to “The Movement.” To be completely frank, there are plenty of frauds and con artists in our scene. 

What website are you writing for again?

In fact, there are probably more sociopaths and swindlers in an edgy sociopolitical set than in America’s business community.[1] Unfortunately, there are very few books dedicated to dissecting and examining “The Movement”’s many dangerous people. 

Well, there’s a blog (not a book) – EGI Notes, but I’m “crazy and bitter.”  The author of this piece is obviously not. Obviously.

However, an examination of a parallel social disaster can be extrapolated to match one’s own circumstances and serve to enlighten one in a way which might lead to progress.

Oh yes, indeed.

Carreyrou’s story of Theranos starts in November 2006 and ends in March 2018. His sources are mostly former employees. Central to the story is a Stanford dropout named Elizabeth Holmes.[3] Holmes was from a prominent family that had been successful in business, as well as in military and government service. She grew up in a high-class neighborhood in Washington, D.C. 

In other words, she is “one of the gals.”  Just like Mudshark Annie.  Indeed, the have some romantic preferences in common, it seems.

Holmes deliberately dressed like Steve Jobs. She also faked a deep voice when speaking (her voice can be heard changing in this video). Her leadership style was typical for a dynamic leader of a start-up company. 

It seems to me her style was more typical of a padded cell, but, hey, I’m crazy, so I should know, right?

Holmes enjoyed a flurry of good press and flattery . . . but the machines didn’t work, hadn’t worked, and weren’t about to start working. It was all an elaborately-constructed fraud. An October 2015 Wall Street Journal article exposed the company. Looking backwards, it is probable that Theranos was a fraud from the start…

I agree, many parallels to Der Movement.

This is the first politically correct aspect of this. All that talk about “girl power” and “strong, independent womynz” is a powerful metapolitical influence that led otherwise experienced men to fund the venture, and for a time stopped anyone from asking hard questions about her.

But when people on the Right question the “womynz” in the Alt Right, they get critiqued by Counter-Currents white-knighting.

As a result of Holmes’ respectable social background…

Anyone in Theranos who questioned the reality of the situation was shown the door. 

Or “banned” from a blog, eh?   How is Der Movement different?

There was also a culture of nepotism. 

Ethnic nepotism in Der Movement.  Hint: it’s not only the Asians and Afrowop Mafiosos who practice that.

It’s All Fraud East of Suez

He hired a group of Indians to run the lab. None were qualified, and they fed into the culture of incompetence described above. Because they came on H1-B visas, they couldn’t complain about their working conditions.

Hey! These are Asian cogelites!  GNXP says we need “hundreds of thousands” more of these every year.

Carreyrou’s description of Balwani’s actions match much of what I’ve seen dealing with Asians in my own career. In short, they all “ain’t right.” In this case, I am referring to Asians in the broad sense, not just Indians. A true grasp of cause and effect seems to elude them. The scientific method didn’t originate in India or China. Essentially, east of Suez, it’s all a fraud. 

Except Steve Jobs, eh?

Learning How to Spot a Fraud

Things that mesh with the PC narrative (or any narrative) too well are often frauds. Theranos was political correctness run amok. There was a “strong womyn” running the show. 

But if you criticize the “strong womyn” making Alt Lite podcasts, Alt Right white knights (some of them apparently have no experience with women apart from blood relatives) come out to hysterically defend them.

She was in an interracial relationship. 

Just like Derbyshire.

Theranos was filled with “immigrant strivers.” In talks, Holmes invoked buzzwords as though they were part of a magical spell. She told audiences to “believe in yourself.” Others joined in on the spell-casting. General Mattis called the company a “game changer.”

Imitating the form of a thing is not the same thing as the thing itself. Elizabeth Holmes’ look and back-story was a crude imitation of the outer forms of accomplished men. The truth is, it didn’t matter how Steve Jobs dressed. What he did was actually get results.

Jobs was 50% Syrian Arab – Syria being “east of the Suez.”  But, hey, why should facts and logic get in the way of a Counter-Currents post, with the current brilliant crop of Alt Righters leading the way.  They are low information, but so what?

Beware of promises to simplify that which is very complex. Experts in the field of medicine who had really undergone the complex process were the ones to call Theranos’ bluff. (A good example of an expert with great technical knowledge spotting a fraud can be found here.)

But when someone with technical knowledge in the life sciences calls out HBD pseudoscience and “movement” race fraud, then they are labelled “crazy and bitter.”  Hypocrisy.

Elizabeth Holmes left a trail of destruction in her wake. 

Just like “movement” leaders.

On a final note, one must again emphasize the cliché that all that glitters is not gold. Things that are politically correct, i.e. “women and minorities,” always need a second, harder look. Do not enter into a transaction with any Asian that is any more difficult than bazaar levels of sophistication.

Does that include Asians infiltrating pro-White websites and organizations?  Does that include the HBD fraud?  Does that include Silk Road White nationalism?

Notes

[1] Another insight into the Theranos disaster is the idea that the government, in this case the Food and Drug Administration, can help get rid of quacks. It is clear that the libertarian ideological model of “small government” would have allowed Theranos to carry out its swindle longer than it should have.

Libertarianism is an absurdity.  The fact that the Alt Right had its genesis through libertarianism tells you all you need to know about the stupidity, superficial juvenile attitudes, and aberrant ideology.

[3] Holmes was also descended from Charles L. Fleischmann (1835-1897), a wealthy manufacturer of yeast. Fleischmann was Jewish but married outside of the group. So while she had some Jewish ancestry, it is impossible to put Holmes in any ethnic category other than that of Wilmot Robertson’s American Majority.

Hey, she’s OK then.  After all, she has a Nordish ranking of 2.6439751, so what’s the problem?  She left a trail of destruction in her wake, but she’s still a whole lot better than a bunch of greasy five foot tall Afrowop brownsters scurrying around like roaches over the landscape of a once great country they ruined.

Holmes probably would have been more successful if she had concentrated on medical issues more in her “wheelhouse” – such as novel testing approaches for vaginal yeast infections.

Larson and Counter-Currents

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

Read there.  Excerpts, emphasis added;

Among the candidates running against incumbent Rep. Barbara Comstock in Virginia’s Tenth Congressional District is a self-described pedophile who has allegedly admitted he raped his late spouse and advocates what he calls “benevolent white supremacy.” 

After all, this is exactly the kind of press, and public representation, Der Movement needs.  If you in any way question that, you’re obviously “crazy and bitter.”

HuffPost reports that Larson used “Leucosticte” and “Lysander” as user names to post in the chat rooms, where he endorsed child rape and sexual abuse. He reportedly wrote one essay about father-daughter incest and another about raping his ex-wife repeatedly and was asked by HuffPost whether there was a “grain of truth” in the essays. He said there was, and suggested that it’s not uncommon for women to have rape fantasies. 

It is uncommon to write about it and then run for Congress.

Here are some of the agenda items in his lengthy campaign manifesto:

Legalize the possession and distribution of child pornography;

I suppose a certain English (ex) illegal alien will be jumping on the Larson bandwagon.  All aboard!

End minimum age for consumption of alcohol;

That’s the Beavis-and-Butthead Alt Right plank of the manifesto.

Repeal Violence Against Women Act. “We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands,” Larson writes; 

I won’t argue too much against that.

Legalize early marriage

How early?

Legalizing suicide. “Legalizing barbiturates, heavy machine guns, etc. makes available reliable and peaceful means of suicide for those who need them,” his manifesto reads;

If he wants to thin the herd, he can start with Der Movement.

Favors right to discriminate;

OK.

Legalize insider trading;

The Jewish plank of the manifesto?

Puts forward the idea that Jewish state should be in “more defensible location,” like the state of New Jersey;

That’s great.  Let’s move Israel to New Wopsey. Fuggedaboutit!

End laws that ban felons from owning firearms.

Self-interest?

Larson’s manifesto also reveres Adolf Hitler as a “white supremacist hero,” as well as Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism.

Did I need to tell you this is a Type I?

On a related issue.

A realistic assessment of our situation is that we simply do not have a ready collective of prepared people who are ready for prime time. We don’t have a network of disciplined organizations full of large numbers of people who are ready and able to effectively present our message to the American public, or take effective, focused action.
Are we working on it? Absolutely.

Absolutely!  After all, Revilo Oliver talked about 50 years of “movement” failure – 50 years ago.  Maybe in another 100 years all the quota queens will have figured it all out, and they can proceed to save both of the White people still existing at that time.

Are we making great strides? Most definitely. Do we have promising candidates? For sure. American Renaissance is an utterly invaluable resource.

Invaluable if you are Jewish or East Asian.

But it is also definitely true that we just aren’t there yet. We’re building it. And do you know what it looks like to build effective organization? It means sorting the wheat from the chaff so we can create something that is all wheat and no chaff—and that means criticizing the chaff so that it can get out of the way and make room for the wheat.

Yes, that’s why I criticize Der Movement in general and Counter-Currents in particular. All the chaff have glass jaws though, good at “punching right” but not at taking a punch.

Notwithstanding the fact that what we stand for are principles that vast numbers of people do (and should) consider common sense, we are a fringe political movement. And fringe political movements attract weirdos no matter what their political position.

A point I’ve made online for, literally, years.

Online movements attract people who have extra time on their hands and choose to spend it reading on the Internet. To make it into our niche in particular, we had to be curious and intelligent enough to read and comprehend essays on things like human biodiversity…

Let’s read and comprehend pseudoscience, that’s the ticket.  We’ll look at the Pyramids of Atlantis next.

…—but not so curious and intelligent that we’d already made a career in academia, where acknowledging these findings would risk ruining everything we’d built. 

Kevin MacDonald.  Frank Salter.  Those are academics. How much support does Salter get from Der Movement?

The situation we are in is intrinsically, inherently paradoxical. To succeed by “democratic” means, we need to reach ordinary people; but we are, by definition, weirdos.

Yes, and let us make ourselves more weird by rambling about “the spectral,” “Kali Yuga,” “the men who can’t tell time,” and other such nonsense.

Furthermore, “public leadership” is a position which is doubly attractive to the worst of peoples’ personality traits. People with families and children whose well-being they care about are inherently less likely to do it, but the more narcissistic a person is, the more likely they will.

Again, I’ve written about this over and over again.  The social pricing problem needs to be solved.  The incompetent affirmative action “movement leadership” are not the ones to do it though.

For a movement whose ideals are built on hierarchy and the elevation of “greatness” as a moral value of central importance, this reluctance to make high demands of those we call “leaders” is especially ironic.

Yes, indeed. And what website are you writing this for?

And for a movement so focused on mocking the modern world’s obsession with “inclusivity” and how this causes everything from the military to firefighting departments and educational faculties to constantly lower their standards regarding actual performance and success, we sure do seem to be demanding a heavy share of standard-lowering “inclusivity” of our own.

Yes, indeed. And what website are you writing this for?

If anything, what we really need is to be a whole hell of a lot more exclusive.

Exclude Counter-Currents.

SLC News, 5/29/18

It’s…Der Movement!

Strom just doesn’t get it.  Doesn’t he know that Jews are HuWhyte (and high IQ too!) and the real threat is from greasy Afrowops and those Romanians dancing the hora (long may it turn).  After all, that’s what the HBD race realist HBDers tell us, so it must be right.  Right?

With respect to Robinson, I suppose a riposte to Strom is this, and a riposte to that is this comment.

If the comment is correct, does that make Greg Johnson a “low information moralizer?”  Now, true enough, Johnson replies in the post thread to other similar comments.  There is a legitimate case to be made that Robinson was acting stupidly, and is not a martyr to free speech.  But something about all of this strikes me the wrong way – perhaps it is Johnson’s alacrity for “punching right” combined with his “glass jaw” whenever someone throws a rhetorical punch of criticism in his own direction. I also suppose that too much “movement” concern for Robinson would take away from concern for, and donations to, Counter-Currents, and we certainly can’t have that.

And why the disparaging attitude toward the idea of a White “chimp-out?”  Forget about Robinson, there should have been an England-wide “chimp-out” by the native stock over the whole sex grooming scandal.  Indeed, if Whites started “chimping-out” instead of “cucking-out” much of what is happening to them would not occur.

Loyalty to our team is admirable. But our first loyalty should be to our cause. And if people bring our cause into disrepute, we need to call them on it.

But if you “call” Johnson on something, he’ll “ban” you from his blog.  Sorry, but my loyalty is to the cause, and the cause is not advanced by having an anti-racist infiltrator welcomed with open arms into “extreme vetted” meetings for reasons that essentially support all my criticisms of Der Movement, and then have the selfsame infiltrator mockingly (in retrospect for you, in real time for him) give a talk at the meeting about the dangers of infiltrators.  And that followed by equally ludicrous further infiltratiors.

White advocates have the whole system against us. Our only allies are truth and justice. Our greatest source of credibility is speaking the truth and defending justice.

“Spectral” ideas of how the “pyramids of Atlantis” were built by “psychokinesis” is not truth. “Movement” antics are not justice.

The Alt Wrong crows that atheists are cringing subhumans with a high mutation load.  Unfit they are!  Maladaptive!  Indeed, atheists are obviously not the adaptive, racially aware, and clear-sighted-on-race EGI dynamos as is the well-known religious individual, shown kneeling, dressed in white.

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

A Dire Spectral Vision

Latest “movement” tragicomedy.

New from Counter-Currents!

Take that, Arktos and Richard Spencer!  Meanwhile, Counter-Currents continues to pretend that Bolton’s Yockey biography doesn’t exist.

Absolutely disgusting.

Great to see that Jorjani is working with Counter-Currents and getting away from the unfortunate elements of the “movement”.

Let’s not forget this from that Swedish Counter-Currents forum speaker, Patrik Hermansson:

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.”

Now Jorjani and Johnson are buddies again, because…Richard Spencer.

 

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

Further, it is highly disturbing that the likes of Greg Johnson and Richard Spencer fail to understand the damage done to serious racial nationalism by their enabling of someone who peddles pseudoscientific nonsense and gnostic “traditionalist” fantasies.  Do they really think intelligent, well-read, educated, empiricists want to be associated with “the pyramids of Atlantis were built by psychokinesis?”  The Spectral!  The Spectral! (Theme music from Ghostbusters playing in the background).

The domination of the “movement” by Type I activists was, is, and remains an unmitigated tragedy.  They have no sense whatsoever, no common sense, no innate “feel” for what any reasonably same person would consider appropriate or inappropriate.  “Normies” will think racial nationalism – or ethnic nationalism for you knuckle-dragging ethnonationalists – is strange enough, if you are going to combine it with crazed ramblings fit for a D-grade sci/fi-fantasy novel, then forget about it. The System continuously tries to associate racial activism with pseudoscience and fantasy.  How much easier for them when Der Movement actually does exhibit those tendencies and taints the honest efforts of others.
