The Basic Foundation of White Nationalism

Race as nation.

The Left (and the System in general) pretends to be confused about what White nationalism is – “there is no generalized White nation” they proclaim – or they stupidly and mendaciously conflate White nationalism with “White supremacy.” 

Putting aside all of the details and all of the various permutations of White nationalist thought, the concept is very simple and very basic – extending the concept of “nation” to incorporate the entire race (typically meaning Europeans as a whole), so that the concept of national identity and national allegiance, at its highest level, focuses on race, rather than on particular ethnic groups constituting that race.

Nationalism is an ideology and movement characterized by the promotion of the interests of a particular nation,[1] especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining the nation’s sovereignty (self-governance) over its homeland. Nationalism holds that each nation should govern itself, free from outside interference (self-determination), that a nation is a natural and ideal basis for a polity,[2] and that the nation is the only rightful source of political power (popular sovereignty).[1][3] It further aims to build and maintain a single national identity—based on shared social characteristics such as culture, language, religion, politics, and belief in a shared singular history[4][5][page needed]—and to promote national unity or solidarity.[1] Nationalism, therefore, seeks to preserve and foster a nation’s traditional culture, and cultural revivals have been associated with nationalist movements.[6] It also encourages pride in national achievements, and is closely linked to patriotism.[7][page needed] Nationalism is often combined with other ideologies, such as conservatism (national conservatism) or socialism (socialist nationalism) for example.[2]

Thus, again, White nationalism is simply putting the race as a whole as the nation instead of nations based on particular ethnic groups. The latter certainly can still play a role, and those nations can continue to exist (and should),  but the highest form of national allegiance is to the race – Our Race Is Our Nation, the “ORION” theme. The idea that nationalism has to refer to a pre-existing nation-state is ludicrous and ahistorical; indeed, many current nation states exist because of the pre-existing nationalism of those who envisioned the state and actualized it into existence.

Everything described in the Wikipedia quote above holds with respect to White nationalism – self-determination, political power, identity, etc.

It is not easy to formulate an argument that whites, uniquely among the world’s peoples, lack any moral right to organize in defense of their interests or to maintain homelands of their own. So our enemies do not, in fact, attempt to formulate such arguments; they simply lie. The lying takes the form of name-calling, and consists in the discrepancy between the dictionary definition and the definition-in-use of devil terms.

Yes, and that lying includes dishonesty about the meaning of White nationalism, as discussed above.  Lying about White nationalism is simply a malicious racial attack against Whites and White interests.

Frankennutzi

Building the ideal activist.

Imagine trying to build the ideal White racial nationalist out of the attributes of different individuals, akin to how the Frankenstein monster was built out of the body parts of different individuals. We can call this creation Frankennutzi.

We can mix the pan-Europeanism of Francis Parker Yockey, Oswald Mosley, Norman Lowell, and Ted Sallis; the futurism of Marinetti; the radicalism of William Pierce; the intelligence of Kevin Strom; the optics of Jared Taylor; the gravitas and seriousness of Revilo Oliver; the scientific understanding of Ted Sallis; the ethnological insights of Frank Salter; the prescience and judgment of Ted Sallis; the JQ attitude of MacDonald; and the sexual realism of Roger Devlin.

We can also consider the reverse.

Frankennutcase:

The humility of Richard Spencer; the tolerance of criticism, ethnonationalism, judgment, and traditionalism of Greg Johnson; the class, elegance, and sexual restraint of Donald Trump; the trustworthiness of Silver; the rampant masculinity of James O’Meara, the fiscal responsibility of David Duke; the maturity and optics of Anglin, TRS, and the cosplay crowd; the science of Greg Cochran and Richard Lynn; the Nordicism of Hans Gunther, William Pierce, and Richard McCulloch; the gravitas of Parrott and Heimbach; the racial science of Durocher; the seriousness of Roissy; the attitude toward Asians of Majority Rights; the intelligence of the current crop of Counter-Currents writers; the racial loyalty of John Derbyshire; the JQ attitude of Zman; and, well, you get the picture.

A Very Unzian Movement

All Unz, all the time.

From the pro-Asian, anti-White HBD Unz site:

I agree with tamo that the western barbarians stole pretty much everything and then they turned into the most sadistic monstrous conquerors unlike anything we have seen. Now keep blowing their horns about so called discovering things that were discovered or invented thousands of years before them. Heck they didn’t even have indoor toilets until recently while it was there in mohen jo daro 5000 years ago. Now they wear funny klown outfits with a piece of bib and an over coat and act civilised.

Remember Sun Tao? thats taught in all modern military academies? written by some chinese guy 2000 years ago. In india they have native medicines which are more effective than most modern medicines and have been in use for thousands of years. While surgery and invasive process have advanced a lot every year, a lot of that advancement is due to a world wide effort in cooperation and research even if the majority of it is done in like the US which is full of foreigners anyway. The west like the japanese is very good at taking someone else’s invention and taking it up a notch.. Just like taking some guys idea on stealth research and now uses it to create planes that cannot be seen.. And aint that why the west ‘invented’ everything? to steal and call it your own..

Johnson and Durocher write for that site. Never forget that.

Durocher:

Great post!

Of course, the “great post” referred to was one supporting Nordicist theory.  You really didn’t expect anything different, did you?

Generally speaking, I would say a successful ancient state mostly just needs a motivated, competent, and solidary elite. The average level of the masses, who are mostly stuck farming in the countryside, is not so relevant.

Certainly!  Thus, Classical Civilization could have started in sub-Saharan Africa if only the Nordic elite had penetrated that far south. Missed opportunities!  Instead of Julius Caesar crossing the Rubicon and saying “the die is cast,” we could have had Tyrone Carjacker crossing the Nile and saying “I dindu nuffin.”

So indeed, this would fit with the Nordicist model of ancient accomplishment 

Of course it does.  Everything does.

(which I am not committed to, I have not seen conclusive evidence either way).

Of course, “conclusive evidence” against would never be accepted.  Indeed, even when some evidence against exists, Der Movement actually interprets that as evidence for.

The backwardness of the ancient Nords is to my mind easy to understand: low population density, harsh climate, poor communications.

Indeed.  After all, Rome was founded with 50 million people and a high speed Internet connection.  And I thought “harsh climate” prompts time indoors for scholarship?

I don’t think excess individualism was a factor yet. And after all, these barbarians were able to invade and conquer the southerners on a fairly regular basis, from the Celts to the Vikings.

With modern individualism, conquest was impossible, which is why, for example, Hitler’s Germany wasn’t able to ever expand beyond its own borders.

My initial instincts about this Durocher were, of course, correct. 

The Times once published a silly article entitled “The Alt-Right’s Asian Fetish”; Finn obediently lists the alleged “fetish” as a defining trait of the movement.

Uh huh. Read the article in question.  Pay attention to the linked comment by “Karlin” and that quoted from Spencer.  Karlin is – who knows?  But – what about Spencer?  Anglin?  Derbyshire?  Based Stickman?  Pilleater? All figments of our imagination, no doubt. The article was silly, yes, but as the “movement” always likes to remind us, all stereotypes contain a kernel of truth.  Greg Johnson apparently agrees with me:

This is a movement full of anime fanatics, with a fringe of rice burners. Many of them would welcome our new Asian overlord.

Whether “fringe” constitutes a “fetish” is in the eye of the beholder.  And if that beholder is a “movement” “overlord” then expect that eye to have an epicanthic fold.

To borrow a turn of phrase, the burning of Notre Dame is not the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning. These events open eyes and make the minds of our fellows receptive to the arguments we make.

It’s not an end or a beginning of anything.  Most Whites could care less, and most of the ones who did have a glimmer of caring have already forgotten about it, and are going back to their fast food, sports,and television.

Fetishist:

P.S. Emma Hallberg is unlikely to be 100% ethnically Swedish. My guess is that she probably had a Swedish father who race-mixed with a darker woman who didn’t come from Sweden. Maybe even a Greek or someone from Balkan who was quite dark.

Is that the same father whose picture Hallberg posted to show how “tan” he was?  The truth exposed!  His real surname is Hallbergopolous – a dark, dark, dark Greek immigrant!  Darker than a Nigerian!  Darker than midnight!  Darker than even a S.Italian Afrowop!  You can’t get any darker than that.

Ragnarok II

More.

Read this. 

We demand legislation forbidding all US companies from adopting politically correct terms of service and employment. All private companies must be forced by law to respect freedom of speech and thought.

That is essential, but expect the System to fight that tooth-and-nail.  In the absence (yet) of overt “speech laws” due to the First Amendment, social pricing is the number one method to keep White folks in line.  Antifa violence and all the rest is nothing by comparison, a firecracker compared to a thermonuclear device.

Once people are free to express dissident opinions without fear of workplace punishment, the System’s biggest stick collapses, and they simply no longer have sufficient carrots for all the disaffected Whites.  So, yes, we need a “political opinion protection act.” 

The current administration could have been the best hope for that, but with Trump/Sessions trying to out-virtue signal the worst of the GOP cucks, it seems unlikely.

We should not give up though.  Extended First Amendment protections to the private sphere is probably the single most important idea of this post.  With that, the dam cracks and eventually collapses.

On Trump.

I feel like vomiting after watching this video.
The Alt-Right attempted to hold a peaceful rally in Charlottesville, VA. We had to get a federal court order to be able to exercise our First Amendment rights. After arriving in Lee Park, we were attacked by violent Antifa while the police stood down and watched. Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a “state of emergency” and riot police pushed us into hordes of violent leftists who attacked dozens of people.
In response to this outrage, Donald Trump has condemned us, praised the Virginia State Police and said nothing about the actions of violent Antifa groups who will only be further emboldened to attack his supporters all over the country. While Donald Trump talks about restoring “law and order,” the reality of the matter is that police departments in leftwing cities are standing down and ceding the state’s monopoly on violence to lynch mobs. We saw this happen in Portland and Charlottesville the last two weekends.
Everything I have said was captured on video. For two years now, Donald Trump has said nothing while violent lynch mobs have attacked his supporters all over the country, not only in Charlottesville, but also in Washington, DC during the inauguration and Berkeley and many other places. A disabled man who supported Donald Trump was even kidnapped and tortured on Facebook Live in Chicago and he said nothing. President Trump talks about “equal rights,” but the truth of the matter is that White Americans in his country are routinely subjected to censorship, physical violence, employment discrimination, intimidation and massive civil rights violations while the Trump administration looks the other way. It does so because it is afraid of the power of the mainstream media.
The Alt-Right will stand with White Americans who are under siege in Trump’s America who have been deserted by their president. The Trump administration showed today that it is more interested in moving forward with its agenda of massive tax cuts for the wealthy than in defending our most basic constitutional rights. Sadly, President Trump’s chilling message will only stoke the flames of the violent Left and will strike fear into all those who dare to speak out against it who know they will inevitably be attacked now and portrayed as wicked racists by a vicious and hostile media cartel.
Donald Trump has given a green light to Antifa. He has sided with a group of people who attack us on sight and attempt to kill us and for that the Alt-Right can no longer support him. What Donald Trump has done today is an unforgivable betrayal of his supporters.

Devlin is a smart fellow and I always liked his writing, but at some point we need to stop making excuses for Trump.  Yes, his press conference wasn’t bad, but the fact is he and Sessions never cracked down on Antifa and they both denounced us all.

Der Movement in Der News, 1/12/17

It’s Der Usual.

The whole sovereign states vs. pan-Europeanism thing sounds real familiar. Where have I ever heard those types of arguments before?  Drawing a blank, am I.

It’s Ronnie Raygun, the original Man on White Horse.  Der Movement really learned their lesson with that. Hail Trump!  Hail Kushner!

Ellis Island-era immigrants to big cities like Chicago didn’t face the challenges of settling the American frontier. But the psychological costs still must have been high.

Maybe then they could have just stayed in their own dysfunctional countries?

Rules For (Far-Right) Radicals

Alinsky’s rules co-opted.

Let’s consider the thirteen rules:

1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” – I have read innumerable articles in recent months from the lying press about how the GOP is full of crypto-White nationalists. Sounds good. Big if true.

As long as Der Movement is not fooled by this unhinged hysteria as well.

2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” – We’re not going to get most people to do things they have no habit of doing. We need to play to the strengths of our existing human resources.

That’s very important.  To quote Dirty Harry: “a man got to know his limitations.”  But in order to effectively utilize everyone’s skills and aptitudes we must carefully match individuals with responsibilities.  There are “leaders” who have no leadership skills or judgment whatsoever, as one example of a mismatch.

3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” – This and the above rule are standard Sun Tzu; know the enemy and know yourself or else you will be defeated. We must always stay abreast of the opposition, always be more informed, and always make them look stupid.

Making the Left look stupid really is not so difficult, IF the far-Right is clever.

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” – There are two key forms of this: concern-trolling and malicious compliance. Doing so will stress them out by increasing their cognitive dissonance load, bleed them of resources, and generally waste their time and energy. You can also bait your opponents into producing specific outcomes if they are inflexible and dogmatic enough.

Yes, yes, yes.  And this is what Salter’s democratic multiculturalism is all about.  Use sociopolitical ju-jitsu to leverage all the Left’s talk about “inclusion” against them.  A multiculturalism that is for everyone, including and particularly the majority, conflates into a multiculturalism for no one.  The whole purpose of multiculturalism is to empower minorities while disempowering majorities; if the majority demands inclusion into multiculturalism – real inclusion that explicitly defends majority interests – then multiculturalism becomes diluted into nothingness and it falls apart.  Further, majority-friendly multiculturalism will enrage the minorities who believe that they have an innate right to exclusive ethnic mobilization, and this rage will enhance chaotic balkanization and therefore underscore the demands of the majority for inclusion = a virtuous cycle.  And all the idiots who say that democratic multiculturalism is “dishonoring our ancestors” – it is losing that dishonors our ancestors.  Winning is honorable, let’s win, and we can win by forcing the enemy to live up to its own rulebook. Let’s do it.

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” – Most of the Alt Right’s troll ops consist of making a mockery of things. Ditto for our memes and critiques, e.g. cuckservative. It will probably go down as one of the greatest political slurs of all time: implying that your opponent gets off to watching his country be destroyed while his wife’s son votes against him. Cuckservative captures perfectly, and ridiculously, how the target serves every interest but the national.

Agreed.  And it applies to ridiculing Der Movement as well.

6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” – Trolling. Shitposting. Meme magick. It never gets old because there is always something new to provide a perspective on, or some new journalist to troll, or a comments section to raid, or a viral media campaign to be fought.

Well, we know some folks enjoy posting pictures of Pepe.

7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” – I think the only area the Alt Right sees diminishing returns on is putting out too blackpilled of a message, or being too gloom and doom. People don’t really want to hear that all the time, even when it has to be said. Things getting worse is after all part of the sales pitch as to why the Alt Right’s solutions are necessary. On the other hand, we have to have a positive and future-oriented message to put out, and that reaches a bigger audience than commiseration.

Sure, that should be the public face.  In private though, we really need to follow the Sallis Strategy: despair, disillusionment, chaos, hatred, rage, balkanization, bitterness, etc.

8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” – I tend to think this won’t be much of a problem because there is nothing the regime can offer us that would be satisfying other than its resignation.

Murray is naïve here.  We already have people saying “we won” after Trump’s electoral victory.

9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” – This certainly works in our favor given how (((neurotic))) the people we are engaged in holy memetic warfare with are. Even the implication of our presence somewhere or in something is enough to produce media hysteria and maelstroms of kvetching.

True, and this can be used to provoke the Left, see number seven.

10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” – At the moment this is our endless streams of daily content across multiple platforms, something we should continue to scale up and diversify.

See number eight.  I agree completely; now is the time to push, push, push, not to declare victory and go home.

11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” – We want to get to a point where being labeled by the establishment as a racist, sexist, or anti-Semite is a sign of having done something correct, being that bad people are saying it about you.

This is reasonable.

12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” – In other words, to win you actually need an answer to the issue. It can’t just be about opposition. We must be more than reactionary.

We need a Futurist visionary objective.  Criticism must be constructive criticism.  When I criticize Der Movement, I also present an alternative at the Western Destiny blog.

13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” – This is my favorite and I think Alt Right troll ops have done this quite well. First you get ahold of a luegenpresse journalist’s attention. Then you apply the other above tactics to him or her. Finally you get some sort of overdone reaction from them AND their supporters against you, which helps reinforce your own battle lines by showing that the issue you are up against is supported by x and x-plus, all of whom are against you. Many journalists noted during the 2016 presidential campaign that if one were of a Semitic surname (or known to follow a cult of volcanic demonology) and said something critical of Donald Trump, that he or she would be targeted and harassed on their social media or in the comments section. They began to reach out to one another about this and write about the responses they were getting, many going as far as labeling themselves with the triple parentheses symbol in solidarity. So what had basically happened was that our argument all along that overseas Israelis were uniquely opposed to nationalism in the United States was proven—by getting them to band together and admit that they were, and that they were proud about it too. See, all those people who hate Trump have (((something in common)))!

This is somewhat similar to something Nietzsche wrote: that he would focus on particular people in order to criticize ideas that those people represented, not criticizing the people as an end to itself.  

Similarly, I criticize individuals – or more often, types of individuals, without focusing so much on single individuals – to focus attention on their stupidities, including and especially in Der Movement. And why not?  I’ve learned well.  After all, for years, I’ve been the target of this personalized polarization, particularly by elements of Der Movement (e.g., those hostile to pan-Europeanism, those who oppose White ethnics in Der Movement).  And what is fascinating is that some of the same people who are upset with me for being a “shit stirrer” today were completely silent back then when the thoughtful and analytical Rienzi/Holliday/Sallis was being polarized by other shit-stirrers – a fascinating contrast that confirms the validity of my criticisms of Der Movement.

And – other than tone – how is my criticism of Der Movement really any different than this? Why is my criticism wrong and those other criticisms legitimate?  And some of the “esteemed movement leaders” quoted there, should we care what they think?  Brimelow? Taylor?  Spencer should wear their criticism as a badge of honor.  On the other hand, Greg Johnson and Devlin are serious and intelligent activists and their critique of the NPI follies need to be considered.  But the critique doesn’t go far enough.  If a rather silly episode is worthy of an obituary, what about endless decades of “movement” failure?  What about all the fossilized dogma, the silly “movement” narratives, the fact that Der Movement alienates a significant portion of America’s White population – the White ethnics who supported Trump?  And how about all these “movement” feuds, which go on and on – the specific personalities change, but the atmosphere stays the same.  In the past, it was Pierce vs. Covington or Pierce vs. Carto and today it is – what? – Johnson vs. Spencer?  So now we have a series of articles and podcasts at Radix putting their “spin” on “Hailgate” and we have articles at VDARE and Counter-Currents taking the opposite tack.  The more things change the more they stay the same.  Aren’t there more important things to polarize over?

In any case, Alinsky’s  “rules” are as good for the gander as for the goose.
