A Jabbing Post

Points to Ponder.  In all cases, emphasis added.

There are four reasons for this blog to concentrate on the vaccination question, from a pro-vaccination point of view.

1. It is the right thing to do.

2. It is important to demonstrate that there is some corner of the Far Right that is rational, embraces science and technics, values empiricism and expertise, and is not composed of childish idiots and irrational conspiracy mongers.

3. Public health is, or should be, paramount to the racialist worldview and is obviously important to adaptive fitness. Note that the Nazis made a big deal in opposing smoking, for example. 

4. Racialism, properly understood, is a collective endeavor, centered on a collective identify and collective action. The ability of the group to invest in collective social goods and to maintain social cohesion is therefore dependent upon identifying and punishing free riders who benefit from collective social goods while not contributing to them (or in extreme cases, such as anti-vaxxers, opposing them). If cheaters are allowed to prosper, that undermines public confidence in the legitimacy and fairness of collective action, disrupts social cohesion, increases mistrust, and makes people less willing to invest in collective social goods.  Free riding is therefore an enemy of racialism (and it is not surprising that opponents of EGI always invoke free riding as the anti-EGI bogeyman) and must be opposed. Anti-vaxxers are prominent free riders on public health and therefore are enemies of racialism.

Free riding anti-vaxx filth.

Herd immunity is vulnerable to the free rider problem.[46] Individuals who lack immunity, particularly those who choose not to vaccinate, free ride off the herd immunity created by those who are immune.[46] As the number of free riders in a population increases, outbreaks of preventable diseases become more common and more severe due to loss of herd immunity.[10][11][12][43][45] Individuals may choose to free ride for a variety of reasons, including the perceived ineffectiveness of a vaccine,[47] believing that the risks associated with vaccines are greater than those associated with infection,[1][11][12][47] mistrust of vaccines or public health officials,[48] bandwagoning or groupthinking,[43][49] social norms or peer pressure,[47] and religious beliefs.[11] Certain individuals are more likely to choose not to receive vaccines if vaccination rates are high enough so as to convince a person that he or she may not need to be vaccinated, since a sufficient percentage of others are already immune.[1][45]

Who has vested interests?

Alternative medicine proponents gain from promoting vaccine conspiracy theories through the sale of ineffective and expensive medications, supplements, and procedures such as chelation therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy, sold as able to cure the ‘damage’ caused by vaccines.[262] Homeopaths in particular gain through the promotion of water injections or ‘nosodes’ that they allege have a ‘natural’ vaccine-like effect.[263] Additional bodies with a vested interest in promoting the “unsafeness” of vaccines may include lawyers and legal groups organizing court cases and class action lawsuits against vaccine providers.

Conversely, alternative medicine providers have accused the vaccine industry of misrepresenting the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, covering up and suppressing information, and influencing health policy decisions for financial gain.[12] In the late 20th century, vaccines were a product with low profit margins,[264] and the number of companies involved in vaccine manufacture declined. In addition to low profits and liability risks, manufacturers complained about low prices paid for vaccines by the CDC and other US government agencies.[265] In the early 21st century, the vaccine market greatly improved with the approval of the vaccine Prevnar, along with a small number of other high-priced blockbuster vaccines, such as Gardasil and Pediarix, which each had sales revenues of over $1 billion in 2008.[264] Despite high growth rates, vaccines represent a relatively small portion of overall pharmaceutical profits. As recently as 2010, the World Health Organization estimated vaccines to represent 2–3% of total sales for the pharmaceutical industry.[266]

Apart from the few examples to the contrary listed above, vaccines for the most part are NOT money-makers for “big Pharma.” Certainly, the core of the most basic vaccines (including the dastardly MMR) are not money-makers, which is why “In the late 20th century, vaccines were a product with low profit margins, and the number of companies involved in vaccine manufacture declined. In addition to low profits and liability risks, manufacturers complained about low prices paid for vaccines by the CDC and other US government agencies.”

On the other hand, maintenance medications are big money-makers, but since they don’t involve scary needles and “jabbing,” the hysteria crowd have nothing to say about those real fraudulent poisons.

Wasting public health resources:

Most cases of pediatric tetanus in the U.S. occur in unvaccinated children.[169] In Oregon, in 2017, an unvaccinated boy had a scalp wound that his parents sutured themselves. Later the boy arrived at a hospital with tetanus. He spent 47 days in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and 57 total days in the hospital, at a cost of $811,929, not including the cost of airlifting him to the Oregon Health and Science University, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, or the subsequent two-and-a-half weeks of inpatient rehabilitation he required. Despite this, his parents declined the administration of subsequent tetanus boosters or other vaccinations.[170] Due to privacy regulations, publicly identifying the payer of the costs was prohibited.[171]

Better than petty nationalism:

The purpose of this paper is to trace continuity in the attachment of the nouvelle droite to a homogeneous notion of pan-European identity since its birth in 1968. Like the nouvelle droite, early post-war neo-fascism and significant fascist elements in Italy were similarly obsessed with the decline of homogeneous pan-European or Western identities. Despite the ultra-nationalistic origins of historical fascism, early post-war neo-fascism and the nouvelle droite in different historical periods, the thread tying them together is the notion of a strong, unified, homogeneous, pan-European empire regenerated in defense against the dominant ‘materialist’ ideologies such as liberalism, conservatism, social democracy, socialism, capitalism and communism.

Whew!  Good thing he was “absolved of responsibility.”  Otherwise, Trump’s DOJ might have had to start persecution of that “Nazi alligator” – which, after, all, was a native born American.

Odds and Ends, Memorial Day 2020

In der news.

Re: 5/23/20 FMA livestream. Greg Johnson doesn’t have the discipline to work out at home and he also needs a trainer at the gym.

A personal trainer must be paid. Where does the money come from, all ye rank-and-file supporters and donors?  How many of YOU have a private trainer at a gym?  Does it bother you that those you give donations to live better than you do?

This is what we call Herrenvolk Logic – Dershowitz is for something, therefore it is bad.

Actually, I wouldn’t go so far as to make the vaccinations mandatory in the sense Dershowitz advocates.  Just shun the anti-vaxxers, limit their movements so they don’t spread disease, and hold them legally accountable if they do spread disease. If contact tracing demonstrates that an anti-vaxxer caused disease – that’s assault and battery if the victim survives and homicide if they die. Only fair, no?


And while we should reject vaccines because Dershowitz supports them, anti-vaxx vaccine skepticism is justified because of tweets from those medical and epidemiological experts Roosh and Michelle Malkin.  Dat right!

Questions for the anti-vaxx filth – Do you believe that the forcible quarantine of Mary Mallon (“Typhoid Mary”) was unfair? Did it limit her “freedom?”  Her body, her choice!  How dare Big Gummint tell her she can’t work as a cook!  Just because she was killing people means nothing. And, after all, anti-vaxxers tell us that viruses and bacteria don’t cause disease anyway!  So there!  We should worry instead about the “bullets flying everywhere” that are wiping out all non-human animal life on Earth!


More questions for the anti-vaxxers – If you or your children were to be bitten by a rabid animal, would you consent to the “jabbing” with rabies vaccine and rabies immune globulin? Yes or no? If your child were to get a deep puncture would for which the probability for tetanus was high, would you consent for them to be “jabbed” with tetanus vaccine?  If the inept and TROPICAL Chinese were to “accidentally” release smallpox from one of their laboratories, sparking an outbreak, would you consent to a smallpox vaccination?  Why do you tweet and retweet doctored and edited videos that maliciously and mendaciously make it sound that Gates and Fauci are promoting intentionally harming people with vaccines, when you damn well know that it is not true?  If people die as a result of your anti-vaxx lies, are you prepared for the moral and legal consequences?

If you would like to see a pictorial example of what anti-vaxx filth like Red Ice want – in the de facto, ultimate outcome, sense (not implying intention) – for your children, see this.  It doesn’t matter if it is intentional or not.  Criminal negligence is a crime.  Promoting disease by advocating against vaccination has real life consequences, including death. With freedom comes responsibility.  You can’t have one without the other.  

Jenner and Pasteur are spinning in their graves. The fruits of White genius flushed down the toilet by childish retards frightened of scary needles “jabbing” them.


In the past, parents could only dream that there would be a way to save their child who was bitten by a rabid dog, or to prevent their child from being paralyzed by polio, or disfigured or killed by smallpox, or killed by tetanus, or killed by diphtheria or measles – and now that this is possible, and that White genius has brought these gifts to humanity, hysterical retards are throwing it all away.


The real poisons are the maintenance medications, most produced in India and China, which The Great White Whales and their pudgy offspring gladly take because they can’t push away from the table and can’t admit their children are just dumb. But, hey, they’re nice pills and not scary needles, so who cares?  Pills don’t “jab” you.

The coming man  That’s “coming” not “cumming” – in case any men sexually harassing Pilleater were confused about that.

What you do is not debate it – just call it “shit” or “insane” or “indecent.” Then you have a “discussion” with folks who agree with you on everything and congratulate you on your willingness to “debate.”

Not wanting to debate a willing opponent is always a good look. Also, wasn’t Bowden pretty clearly a third positionist?

This is particularly relevant:

Not wanting to debate a willing opponent is always a good look.

Johnson only “debates” two types – either morons he knows he can beat or people who basically agree with him. Why folks take this specimen seriously is a mystery;  well, actually not a mystery – affirmative action, faux intellectualism and a PhD (not “credentialism” in his case, of course), a lack of competition, etc.

I don’t know who this “Keith Woods” is, but if it is someone who Johnson is running from, there must be something useful there.


Very true.

Question – does morality also play a role in “movement” politics?  If so, what can we say about a person who doles out, or withholds, criticism based upon how influential the target is in the “movement,” and based upon the possible affect such criticism would have on the critic’s meeting invitations and “D’Nations?”

Is such a person immoral?  On the other hand, if a person speaks truth to power, even to the extent of being labeled “insane” and indecent,” are they moral?  Just asking.

Sallis is doing well (emphasis added).

And not all benefits are physical: anger can help with negotiating, too. A major flashpoint for aggression is the discovery that someone does not value your interests highly enough. It involves inflicting costs – the threat of physical violence – and withdrawing benefits – loyalty, friendship, or money – to help them see their mistake.

Everyone has interests.  If yours are not being taken seriously, why stand for it?  Why be an extended phenotype for someone else’s interests?

Quota King Ann Coulter.  Gee…what ever happened to In Trump We Trust?  Affirmative action means never having to admit being wrong.


Mudshark Annie is still waiting for Costello to serve her and Dinesh breakfast in bed.  Nighttime activity works up a hearty appetite.

Always remember – when high-T Quota King Coulter was doing her In Trump We Trust shtick, Sallis was calling Trump a vulgar ignorant buffoon. Who was right?  Who was wrong?  When are the rank-and-file Nutzis going to stop the affirmative action program?

Those two faced sneaky liars!  Giggles…and gives the words “ditzy” and “airhead” new meaning. Seriously though, how did we degenerate from William Pierce to this? Yes, I’m critical of Pierce, but how can you compare him to Sorority Girl White nationalism?  Please explain to me again how WN 2.0 is so superior to WN 1.0. I’m not getting it.


Well, of course. Why did any of you ever take that giggling retard seriously in the first place?

Sallis answers yes.  An associate of mine attended one of those Scandinavian conferences at which Miss Giggles was a speaker.  He said all speeches were good, except hers, which was unbearable.  When the conference speeches were put online I couldn’t get through two minutes of hers.

Again, when Babushka hits the wall, none of her beta (ex)fanboys will care in the slightest what she has to say, and they’ll pretend like she never existed.

Well, gee…Brazil’s flubro approach certain is working out well, huh?

While these criticisms of “movement” “rock stars” is necessary (and amusing), there are limits to what can be achieved through purely deconstructivist tactics. So, while such critiques will continue, they’ll be a bit targeted and perhaps less frequent.

There are some projects of importance required.  First, the ongoing project, the main thrust of the Sallis Groupuscle, is the defense and promotion of the fundamental Yockeyian vision of the Western or European Imperium (always keeping in mind that is perfectly compatible with Salterian EGI).

Second, a more in depth project to create the philosophical underpinning to the Sallis Groupuscle, including a critique and rejection of the adulation of Heidegger prevalent among the “traditionalist” faction, building upon analysis of certain existentialist principles, and justifying the Sallisian worldview.

The elegant John Simon unfortunately passed away last fall.  Simon, of Hungarian descent, seems to have been a good man:

In 1981, an ad in a Hollywood trade appeared accusing Simon of being “racist, anti-Semitic, misogynist, vicious and derisive.” It was signed by 300 artists, apparently upset that Simon’s review of Richard III complained that an actress in the show “should never be cast as anything but an itinerant gefilte fish with a nervous condition.”

Well, as we know, obesity is related to higher covid-19 risk.

Meet Ron Unz.

Born in California, to a Ukrainian-Jewish immigrant, Unz was raised in a Yiddish-speaking household. His mother, Esther-Laio Avrutin, met his father on an airplane heading for Israel. A professor from the Midwest, he later briefly became her lover when visiting her on a few occasions in Los Angeles. She unilaterally decided to have a child with him, but Unz’s father was already married and his wife opened a letter from Avrutin telling him about her pregnancy. She was an anti-war activist, who raised her son as a single mother, but Unz was given his father’s surname and soon moved back to her family’s home after her son’s birth.

What about the dangers of cheap Chinese labor?

Due to the Chinese state confiscating supply chains and ethnic Chinese shipping masks in the West back to the homeland, there were so few disposable masks, especially highly effective N95 respirators, available for purchase by Americans that hospitals were having terrible difficulty sourcing personal protective equipment. Perhaps some authority figures understood the reality and thus intentionally misled the American public to preserve crucial facemasks for healthcare workers.

Of interest.

Over the years, Johnson and Spencer have sparred. A lot of the conflict, according to alt-righters, had to do with personal style.(Spencer became the best-known face of the “frat” style, polo-and-chinos alt-right; Johnson has dispensed with such pretenses.) But the tension between them also underscored an ongoing debate about how best to save America from itself. Johnson was seen as the Socrates of the radical right. He has a Ph.D. in philosophy and, before publicly embracing the cause of the white ethnostate, taught at Morehouse College, which is historically black. In Johnson’s view, the far right had to win the war of ideas before it could move on to the “real world” battlefield. That meant books and articles, speaking engagements, conferences, symposia. He had a way of explaining things that made racism and Jew hatred sound like post-structuralism or supply-side economics—something that was once new or avant-garde or even suspect and, over time, acquired a large following.

Spencer was more of a would-be Vladimir Lenin. He also took ideas seriously; he had pursued a Ph.D. at Duke, in intellectual history, before dropping out and moving to D.C. But he was mostly uninterested in ideas divorced from action. He wanted to be in the middle of things. He had pondered a congressional campaign in Montana, where he usually lived. He felt let down by Trump. (“His administration,” Spencer said in an interview, “is not fundamentally different than a [Mitt] Romney administration—or even a Hillary [Clinton] administration. I never expected him to be me. But I expected him to do something.”) The feeling on the alt-right was that Charlottesville had been a disaster because it had left so many members demoralized and fragmented the movement. For Spencer, political outcomes mattered.

Promoting a #DuggAnon style psyop propaganda from a source with no name is very low ball. 

Please do better. Greg if you disagree with someone then it would be most honorable to debate them instead of smear them with trash like this that sends our spergs down the rabbit hole.

Aureum, you had better watch out, before you’re called “insane” and “indecent.” Debate?  He don’t need no stinkin’ debate!

Well, I’m not optimistic either, for two reasons:

First, the only possible vehicle for complete redemption – racial activism – has been compromised by the incompetent Quota Queen “leadership” and their rank-and-file Nutzi followers, coupled to an inane and “insane” fossilized dogma.

Second, the dominant element among Europeans today is the “high trust northern hunter gatherers.”  While there are – contra the HBD liars – strong elements of pathological altruism in Southern and Eastern Europe, I’ll agree with the HBDers that it is strongest in NW Europe. Having the SJW Herrenvolk captaining the HMS Europa is leading to a bigger disaster than the Titanic.

I was very supportive of Trump during the 2016 election.

Indeed. And, at the same time I was referring to Trump as a “vulgar ignorant buffoon” who I endorsed solely because of the chaos he would bring in his wake (which he did).  Who was right? Who was wrong?

I agree, Greg (except for the invention part, see below). The problem is that some of the people you’ve feuded with can say the same about you.


The “invention” accusation is, unfortunately, a new low in “New Right” discourse.  It’s not enough for Johnson to call his critics “insane” and “indecent” – here he implies that some of them may have been “invented by the enemy.” Criticize him and you are – what?  A CIA asset?  A SPLC or ADL agent? A HopeNotHate operative (no, wait, that’s Hermansson)? A reporter for The Stranger (no, wait, that’s Lewis)?  


You see, disagreeing with someone, criticizing their behavior and ideology and actions, holding them accountable – that makes you a “horrible” person. Or an “invention of the enemy.” 


These types, who have an inflated sense of their own self-importance, have to personalize everything. As I’ve repeatedly written here – my criticism of people in the “movement” is business, not personal. I do not know them personally nor do I care to. Who knows? They may be kind to animals (except whales), generous to strangers, pleasant enough in private interactions, real salt of the Earth.  But if these people – particularly self-styled “leaders” – are in my opinion destructive to the cause, I’m going to call them out on it.  It’s “punching right” – which Johnson approves of (at least when he does it to others).  If the behavior is, in my opinion, hypocritical, mendacious, defamatory, etc., then the criticism will be harsh.  But, also, the thing is this – if the criticism is wrong, then refute it.  Ascribing mental illness to people and/or implying they are some sort of infiltrator or agent provocateur is not a refutation, it is merely ad hominem.


And I wish these types were a bit more paranoid about “invented by the enemy” when it came to Patrik Hermansson and Dave Lewis. That would have saved much trouble and embarrassment.  If you cannot identify real infiltrators but instead suggest that authentic activists are such – well, how does that refute my criticisms about your poor judgment?  Indeed, it does nothing but support and reinforce such criticism.  Do better.


Note that I do not make such accusations here at this blog. The closest to that is the endorsement of an investigation – and only an investigation – to determine if any HBDers have association (directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly) with the Chinese government or any other such operatives.  An investigation is just that – a determination about something unknown.  It is wholly possible, and I’ve stated as much, that the HBDers are innocent. Very well. In that case, they should welcome an investigation. The endorsement of an investigation was based upon, in my opinion, credible similarities between (frankly, ludicrous) HBD essays blaming covid-19 on an “American bioweapon” and strikingly similar Chinese government propaganda about same. The suggestion that an investigation was necessary was not simply due to disagreement or feuding, but on those aforementioned similarities and the damage done by that propaganda to the interests of those trying to get to the truth of the matter.


The sad thing is that the people (assuming they themselves are authentic) making accusations against others have actually facilitated the very infiltration they warn about.


An observation from Twitter:

Hard Right Turn@FelineDivisionReplying to @NewRightAmerica 

Your obsession with Spencer is consuming you Greg. Why not just forget about him and do you?

More advice to be downwardly mobile from Counter-Currents:

The first question posed to Greg Johnson and Fróði Midjord during the recent Counter-Currents livestream was, “If you could re-live your twenties, what would you do differently?” Greg’s answer was direct, clear, and quite pertinent to those of us considering an academic career — in the humanities, at least. Short answer: Don’t. Good advice.

Yes, “good advice.” Let dem dere Jews and Asians get the PhDs. You stay in your parents’ basement, reading Counter-Currents (gotta pump up dem page views!), and sending in your hamburger flipper salary money as “D’Nations” to Greg and company. 


How’s that ethnonationalist Brexit thingee working out for you?


No worries, Germany can help Turkey dump them back into Greece.  Yes we can!


Careful, ETs ,those Faroe Islanders are hunting for you!  Avast!  Harpoons to the ready!


Should this book have been entitled Key Retards of the Radical Right?


Johnson:

But you have to draw a line somewhere, and clearly Spencer and Friberg do not belong. They are shallow, self-promoting, pseudo-intellectual poseurs.

Thus, the pot calls the kettle black.


The following is borderline libelous:

Those with a more paranoid bent would connect the dots between Friberg being an antifa and police informant and the fact that Teitelbaum is an American Jew and conclude that he is simply an enemy agent being puffed up as a movement mastermind, i.e., controlled opposition.

Of course, people can make all sorts of similar accusations against Johnson or anyone else.  It doesn’t mean the accusations are true…or not. Evidence?  Where is the clear and irrefutable evidence?

Yes, Jorjani would have been a very good choice

Jorjani’s work is, in my opinion pseudoscientific claptrap. “The spectral!” I’m not surprised that Der Movement considers such an intellectual lightweight to be a “key thinker of the radical right.”


Conservatives are not the only ones afraid of free speech.


Here’s an exercise for the reader – name one (just one) prominent Quota Queen who is currently:

A) Fairly evaluating the ideas, paradigms, and critiques discussed at EGI Notes

B) Willing to engage with the “insane” and “indecent” Ted Sallis

C) Not participating in a cordon sanitaire of the Sallis Groupuscule


I’ll make it easy for you – there are none.  Not a single one.  Consider that even an anti-Sallis opponent like Silver believes that the Quota Queens (at least Johnson) should engage, much less more neutral people who undoubtedly agree with Silver’s assessment.


Who’s afraid of free speech, indeed?


Behold Durocher:

Guillaume Durocher says:
I shat a proverbial brick when I learned that one of De Gaulle’s first policies in newly-liberated France was instituting a MORE NORDIC IMMIGRATION POLICY

Is the following more accurate? –

I had to be hospitalized for an intractable priapism when I learned that one of De Gaulle’s first policies in newly-liberated France was instituting a MORE NORDIC IMMIGRATION POLICY

But, hey, if I label Durocher as a hardcore Nordicist that means that I am, of course, “insane” and “indecent.”  Where would I have ever got that idea from?


By the way, how did De Gaulle’s policy work out?  From looking at current France, it would seem that his underlings must have confused “Nordic” with “Arab and African.” Honest mistake.

Never understood that. If they believe in the vaccines and believe they’re protected, why get so triggered if others choose not to

Let’s see. People object to open lies and pseudoscience, which smears the Right as scientifically illiterate, backwards, and alienates intelligent and rational people (and the same bent toward pseudoscience leads to HBD, Nordicism, “traditionalism,” etc.).


Let’s see. When the unvaccinated get unnecessary diseases it puts a strain on the healthcare system.


And most of all – vaccines are not 100% protective (that’s not how biology works), immunity can wane with age, and there are some people who cannot get vaccinated for legitimate reasons (children under age one year for MMR or folks with allergic reactions or whatever).  So, there are always going to be, in a given population, people who – through no fault of their own – will be not protected. However, given herd immunity, the chain of transmission will be stopped before any significant number of such people are infected. To have such herd immunity, all people who can be vaccinated should be; the overwhelming majority of these will be immune. Vaccination is a collective social good. Lowlife trash who refuse to get vaccinated are free riding on the immunity of others without contributing to it.  

If filthy scum like this were prevalent in past decades, we would still have smallpox.  We would still have polio outbreaks and iron lungs.  It is because of them (and immigration) that we still have measles outbreaks.


But, hey, let’s be fair.  Your body your choice.  Our choice too.  You get ill with a disease for which you chose not to be vaccinated against – no medical treatment. If you die, you die. Further – if you spread the disease to someone else who was vaccinated but who was one of the few not immune or someone who legitimately could not be vaccinated or an old person with waning immunity then you are legally on the hook for that.  At minimum – assault and battery.  If they die – homicide.  I’m sure if you kill an infant with your measles, the jury will be quite interested in your anti-vaxx polemics. Your psychosexual sweaty fear of being “jabbed” is worth killing someone, right?


Lana needs to demonstrate to us all the strength of her anti-vaxx convictions.  I suggest the following three-part program:


1. Get bitten by a rabid animal.  Make sure it’s a real good bite, plenty of foaming saliva getting in there.

2. Refuse to get “jabbed” for rabies prevention treatment.  No rabies vaccine and no rabies immune globulin. After all, who knows what questionable substances are in those jabs? Maybe even a dastardly microchip invented by Bill Gates or some sort of toxin implanted by a cackling Jew doctor.  No jabs!

3. Go home to your family and be a loving mother to your children. Plenty of close contact with them in the weeks or months ahead.  It’s all good!  What could possibly go wrong?


And it goes without saying that if your children were to be bitten by a rabid animal, you should, of course, refuse to have them “jabbed” as well.  Who knows what that Jew doctor is injecting?


The good news is that the nonsense of the Russess has a limited shelf-life. Once she hits the wall and looks like a babushka, no one will care in the slightest what she has to say. Give it time – perhaps less time than she thinks.  Age marches onward. Let us remember the well known MGTOW adage – when men get older, the look more and more like Sean Connery; when women get older, they look more and more like…Sean Connery.


In any case, those of us with a triple digit IQ and who are not hypocrites understand that in a society individual choices in many cases affect other people.  Indeed, isn’t that why we on the Far Right criticize “my body my choice” race-mixing? Don’t we oppose the idea that people can do whatever they want, even though it is destructive to the wider society?


Indeed, we all have societal responsibilities. The Millennials and Zoomers should reflect upon that the reason why they are not today pricked (not “jabbed”) against smallpox is because all we older people were so pricked, and the virus was eliminated (in the wild). If someone – an incompetent TROPICAL Chinese lab for example – were to release smallpox, would The Retarded Right refuse that vaccine as well?

He has a Ph.D. in philosophy and, before publicly embracing the cause of the white ethnostate, taught at Morehouse College, which is historically black. In Johnson’s view, the far right had to win the war of ideas before it could move on to the “real world” battlefield. That meant books and articles, speaking engagements, conferences, symposia. He had a way of explaining things that made racism and Jew hatred sound like post-structuralism or supply-side economics—something that was once new or avant-garde or even suspect and, over time, acquired a large following.

Spencer was more of a would-be Vladimir Lenin. He also took ideas seriously; he had pursued a Ph.D. at Duke, in intellectual history, before dropping out and moving to D.C. But he was mostly uninterested in ideas divorced from action. He wanted to be in the middle of things. He had pondered a congressional campaign in Montana, where he usually lived. He felt let down by Trump. (“His administration,” Spencer said in an interview, “is not fundamentally different than a [Mitt] Romney administration—or even a Hillary [Clinton] administration. I never expected him to be me. But I expected him to do something.”) The feeling on the alt-right was that Charlottesville had been a disaster because it had left so many members demoralized and fragmented the movement. For Spencer, political outcomes mattered.

Promoting a #DuggAnon style psyop propaganda from a source with no name is very low ball. 

Please do better. Greg if you disagree with someone then it would be most honorable to debate them instead of smear them with trash like this that sends our spergs down the rabbit hole.

Aureum, you had better watch out, before you’re called “insane” and “indecent.” Debate?  He don’t need no stinkin’ debate!

Well, I’m not optimistic either, for two reasons:

First, the only possible vehicle for complete redemption – racial activism – has been compromised by the incompetent Quota Queen “leadership” and their rank-and-file Nutzi followers, coupled to an inane and “insane” fossilized dogma.

Second, the dominant element among Europeans today is the “high trust northern hunter gatherers.”  While there are – contra the HBD liars – strong elements of pathological altruism in Southern and Eastern Europe, I’ll agree with the HBDers that it is strongest in NW Europe. Having the SJW Herrenvolk captaining the HMS Europa is leading to a bigger disaster than the Titanic.

I was very supportive of Trump during the 2016 election.

Indeed. And, at the same time I was referring to Trump as a “vulgar ignorant buffoon” who I endorsed solely because of the chaos he would bring in his wake (which he did).  Who was right? Who was wrong?

I agree, Greg (except for the invention part, see below). The problem is that some of the people you’ve feuded with can say the same about you.


The “invention” accusation is, unfortunately, a new low in “New Right” discourse.  It’s not enough for Johnson to call his critics “insane” and “indecent” – here he implies that some of them may have been “invented by the enemy.” Criticize him and you are – what?  A CIA asset?  A SPLC or ADL agent? A HopeNotHate operative (no, wait, that’s Hermansson)? A reporter for The Stranger (no, wait, that’s Lewis)?  


You see, disagreeing with someone, criticizing their behavior and ideology and actions, holding them accountable – that makes you a “horrible” person. Or an “invention of the enemy.” 


These types, who have an inflated sense of their own self-importance, have to personalize everything. As I’ve repeatedly written here – my criticism of people in the “movement” is business, not personal. I do not know them personally nor do I care to. Who knows? They may be kind to animals (except whales), generous to strangers, pleasant enough in private interactions, real salt of the Earth.  But if these people – particularly self-styled “leaders” – are in my opinion destructive to the cause, I’m going to call them out on it.  It’s “punching right” – which Johnson approves of (at least when he does it to others).  If the behavior is, in my opinion, hypocritical, mendacious, defamatory, etc., then the criticism will be harsh.  But, also, the thing is this – if the criticism is wrong, then refute it.  Ascribing mental illness to people and/or implying they are some sort of infiltrator or agent provocateur is not a refutation, it is merely ad hominem.


And I wish these types were a bit more paranoid about “invented by the enemy” when it came to Patrik Hermansson and Dave Lewis. That would have saved much trouble and embarrassment.  If you cannot identify real infiltrators but instead suggest that authentic activists are such – well, how does that refute my criticisms about your poor judgment?  Indeed, it does nothing but support and reinforce such criticism.  Do better.


Note that I do not make such accusations here at this blog. The closest to that is the endorsement of an investigation – and only an investigation – to determine if any HBDers have association (directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly) with the Chinese government or any other such operatives.  An investigation is just that – a determination about something unknown.  It is wholly possible, and I’ve stated as much, that the HBDers are innocent. Very well. In that case, they should welcome an investigation. The endorsement of an investigation was based upon, in my opinion, credible similarities between (frankly, ludicrous) HBD essays blaming covid-19 on an “American bioweapon” and strikingly similar Chinese government propaganda about same. The suggestion that an investigation was necessary was not simply due to disagreement or feuding, but on those aforementioned similarities and the damage done by that propaganda to the interests of those trying to get to the truth of the matter.


The sad thing is that the people (assuming they themselves are authentic) making accusations against others have actually facilitated the very infiltration they warn about.


An observation from Twitter:

Hard Right Turn@FelineDivisionReplying to @NewRightAmerica 

Your obsession with Spencer is consuming you Greg. Why not just forget about him and do you?

More advice to be downwardly mobile from Counter-Currents:

The first question posed to Greg Johnson and Fróði Midjord during the recent Counter-Currents livestream was, “If you could re-live your twenties, what would you do differently?” Greg’s answer was direct, clear, and quite pertinent to those of us considering an academic career — in the humanities, at least. Short answer: Don’t. Good advice.

Yes, “good advice.” Let dem dere Jews and Asians get the PhDs. You stay in your parents’ basement, reading Counter-Currents (gotta pump up dem page views!), and sending in your hamburger flipper salary money as “D’Nations” to Greg and company. 


How’s that ethnonationalist Brexit thingee working out for you?


No worries, Germany can help Turkey dump them back into Greece.  Yes we can!


Careful, ETs ,those Faroe Islanders are hunting for you!  Avast!  Harpoons to the ready!


Should this book have been entitled Key Retards of the Radical Right?


Johnson:

But you have to draw a line somewhere, and clearly Spencer and Friberg do not belong. They are shallow, self-promoting, pseudo-intellectual poseurs.

Thus, the pot calls the kettle black.


The following is borderline libelous:

Those with a more paranoid bent would connect the dots between Friberg being an antifa and police informant and the fact that Teitelbaum is an American Jew and conclude that he is simply an enemy agent being puffed up as a movement mastermind, i.e., controlled opposition.

Of course, people can make all sorts of similar accusations against Johnson or anyone else.  It doesn’t mean the accusations are true…or not. Evidence?  Where is the clear and irrefutable evidence?

Yes, Jorjani would have been a very good choice

Jorjani’s work is, in my opinion pseudoscientific claptrap. “The spectral!” I’m not surprised that Der Movement considers such an intellectual lightweight to be a “key thinker of the radical right.”


Conservatives are not the only ones afraid of free speech.


Here’s an exercise for the reader – name one (just one) prominent Quota Queen who is currently:

A) Fairly evaluating the ideas, paradigms, and critiques discussed at EGI Notes

B) Willing to engage with the “insane” and “indecent” Ted Sallis

C) Not participating in a cordon sanitaire of the Sallis Groupuscule


I’ll make it easy for you – there are none.  Not a single one.  Consider that even an anti-Sallis opponent like Silver believes that the Quota Queens (at least Johnson) should engage, much less more neutral people who undoubtedly agree with Silver’s assessment.


Who’s afraid of free speech, indeed?


Behold Durocher:

Guillaume Durocher says:
I shat a proverbial brick when I learned that one of De Gaulle’s first policies in newly-liberated France was instituting a MORE NORDIC IMMIGRATION POLICY

Is the following more accurate? –

I had to be hospitalized for an intractable priapism when I learned that one of De Gaulle’s first policies in newly-liberated France was instituting a MORE NORDIC IMMIGRATION POLICY

But, hey, if I label Durocher as a hardcore Nordicist that means that I am, of course, “insane” and “indecent.”  Where would I have ever got that idea from?


By the way, how did De Gaulle’s policy work out?  From looking at current France, it would seem that his underlings must have confused “Nordic” with “Arab and African.” Honest mistake.


A stupid yeastbucket, whose “contributions” to the “movement” are a silly podcast show and making “speeches” at conferences in which she giggles like a small girl caught “playing doctor” with an autistic and retarded boy, unburdens herself thus:

Never understood that. If they believe in the vaccines and believe they’re protected, why get so triggered if others choose not to

Let’s see. People object to open lies and pseudoscience, which smears the Right as scientifically illiterate, backwards, and alienates intelligent and rational people (and the same bent toward pseudoscience leads to HBD, Nordicism, “traditionalism,” etc.).


Let’s see. When the unvaccinated get unnecessary diseases it puts a strain on the healthcare system.


And most of all – vaccines are not 100% protective (that’s not how biology works), immunity can wane with age, and there are some people who cannot get vaccinated for legitimate reasons (children under age one year for MMR or folks with allergic reactions or whatever).  So, there are always going to be, in a given population, people who – through no fault of their own – will be not protected. However, given herd immunity, the chain of transmission will be stopped before any significant number of such people are infected. To have such herd immunity, all people who can be vaccinated should be; the overwhelming majority of these will be immune. Vaccination is a collective social good. Lowlife trash who refuse to get vaccinated are free riding on the immunity of others without contributing to it.  

If filthy scum like this were prevalent in past decades, we would still have smallpox.  We would still have polio outbreaks and iron lungs.  It is because of them (and immigration) that we still have measles outbreaks.


But, hey, let’s be fair.  Your body your choice.  Our choice too.  You get ill with a disease for which you chose not to be vaccinated against – no medical treatment. If you die, you die. Further – if you spread the disease to someone else who was vaccinated but who was one of the few not immune or someone who legitimately could not be vaccinated or an old person with waning immunity then you are legally on the hook for that.  At minimum – assault and battery.  If they die – homicide.  I’m sure if you kill an infant with your measles, the jury will be quite interested in your anti-vaxx polemics. Your psychosexual sweaty fears of being “jabbed” is worth killing someone, right?


Lana needs to demonstrate to us all the strength of her anti-vaxx convictions.  I suggest the following three-part program:


1. Get bitten by a rabid animal.  Make sure it’s a real good bite, plenty of foaming saliva getting in there.

2. Refuse to get “jabbed” for rabies prevention treatment.  No rabies vaccine and no rabies immune globulin. After all, who knows what questionable substances are in those jabs? Maybe even a dastardly microchip invented by Bill Gates or some sort of toxin implanted by a cackling Jew doctor.  No jabs!

3. Go home to your family and be a loving mother to your children. Plenty of close contact with them in the weeks or months ahead.  It’s all good!  What could possibly go wrong?


And it goes without saying that if your children were to be bitten by a rabid animal, you should, of course, refuse to have them “jabbed” as well.  Who knows what that Jew doctor is injecting?


The good news is that the nonsense of the Russess has a limited shelf-life. Once she hits the wall and looks like a babushka, no one will care in the slightest what she has to say. Give it time – perhaps less time than she thinks.  Age marches onward. Let us remember the well known MGTOW adage – when men get older, the look more and more like Sean Connery; when women get older, they look more and more like…Sean Connery.


In any case, those of us with a triple digit IQ and who are not hypocrites understand that in a society individual choices in many cases affect other people.  Indeed, isn’t that why we on the Far Right criticize “my body my choice” race-mixing? Don’t we oppose the idea that people can do whatever they want, even though it is destructive to the wider society?


Indeed, we all have societal responsibilities. The Millennials and Zoomers should reflect upon that the reason why they are not today pricked (not “jabbed”) against smallpox is because all we older people were so pricked, and the virus was eliminated (in the wild). If someone – an incompetent TROPICAL Chinese lab for example – were to release smallpox, would The Retarded Right refuse that vaccine as well?

Super-Duper Obese

And other news.

Morbidly obese.  There is a connection between a certain type of freedom uber alles rightist politics and being fat, isn’t there?

Also interesting, and consistent with my writing on the subject, is that Trump, who has previously promoted anti-vaxx views, is taking maintenance medication because of his blubber (spelling corrected and emphasis added):

At his physical in January 2018, his total cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended, even though he was taking a low dose of the statin drug Crestor to help lower so-called “bad” cholesterol and fats. Last year, his doctor said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump’s bad cholesterol reading of 143 down below 120.

Thus, we can observe the right-wing landwhales (*) who decry “Big Pharma’s” dastardly needles, but who enthusiastically gulp down all sorts of “Big Pharma” medications to allow themselves to be healthy enough to breach out of bed every morning.

*They should beware of Faroe Islanders roaming through the aisles of Walmart, hunting all of the Great White Whales there. Ahoy!  Harpoons to the ready!  Thar she blows!  Thar she breaches!


A reasonable comment followed by deranged anti-vaxx hysteria. “Heavy metals and animal parts.”  Lies, lies, and lies.  Diseases we are vaccinated against are “trivial.” Easy to say by someone already vaccinated and/or protected by the herd immunity granted by sane people.


Measles – not trivial; believe me, it’s not. German measles may be trivial to the typical patient, but not to pregnant women who may become infected.  Adult men are advised not to get mumps – can you say “ouch” (or “sterility?”).  How about Polio?  Break out the iron lungs!  Tetanus? Trivial?  Diphtheria?  Trivial?  Pertussis?  Trivial? Is Hepatitis trivial?


I get called “insane,” but a legitimate medical case can be made that anti-vaxxers are indeed insane due to an inability to recognize reality.  Remember the anti-vaxx battle cry – viruses and bacteria don’t cause disease, but, very soon, all non-human animal life on Earth is going to be exterminated by “bullets flying everywhere.” Hey – I just saw a paramecium swimming away from a rifle-toting Faroe Islander. The water’s gonna be turning red – or whatever color paramecium innards are.


Meanwhile, the book Bottle of Lies very clearly exposes that maintenance medications manufactured in India and China are indeed sometimes contaminated, certain genetic knock-offs useless, and many are dangerous.  But for some reasons – who knows why? – anti-vaxxers eschew criticism of medications taken due to lifestyle choices or due to delusions about offspring intelligence.


If you look at some of the anti-vaxx rhetoric coming from the Right, you’ll notice a lot of objections about being forcibly “jabbed” – and that 100% supports my oft-cited contention that the real reason for anti-vaxxism is an innate fear and distaste weak-minded people have for the mode of administration of vaccines. In other words, they are afraid of needles; in addition, I have speculated that there is a psychosexual component here, a (subconscious?) perception that the (Jew?) doctor is going to forcibly “sodomize” them with the needle, violate their bodily integrity – and taint their “precious bodily fluids,” I suppose – and so attack their “freedom” and sense of self.  Related to this is the fears of “toxins” and “chips” and “genetic modification” – the analogy to STDs acquired from “bad sex” or “rape” is clear.  Again – if vaccines were taken by pill, and statins were injected, these idiots would support vaccines and reject statins (which would actually reflect what’s in the literature and reflect reality), despite the fact that the fatties believe that statins (which really do have side effects and whose efficacy for actual mortality is questionable to say the least) will enable them to safely get away with being human dirigibles. It’s interesting that so much ire has been focused on the MMR vaccine (injected), and very little given to the past oral polio vaccine, even though there were cases of old folks (whose immunity had weakened), and isolated children, actually contracting polio the vaccine (children) or from changing the diapers of infants (old folks) who had been so vaccinated (today, they give the less effective injected polio vaccine for that reason – presumably “bad” because it is delivered by “jabbing” children).


Do we want public health policy influenced by people whose real underlying rationale about vaccination is fear of needles and bizarre sexual fixations about being  “jabbed” by needles? As I’ve said many times, the REAL public health threat from ”Big Pharma” is maintenance medications, but, alas, popping pills mimics the well-loved eating process (indeed, it is so well-loved that it has created the need for most of those maintenance medications in the first place), so no problem.  So goes Der Right.


Right-wing health and science advice:

StronzaPosted May 19, 2020 at 12:30 pm | PermalinkThe worse the flu, both in terms of individual severity and total number of deaths, the weaker the population is. That poor virus doesn’t cause anything in any meaningful sense, it’s a messenger, a marker. Same as the Black Death – read up on the way people were living. It is a miracle that there was anybody left after nature took its logical course. Back then, they were immersed in obvious physical filth and poor diet and drinking water; today, it’s harder to see that our daily lives are no better. Our “public health” experts are just more efficient at hiding the symptoms of our deep sickness.
Still, today, it’s all about “transmission” of some bacteria or virus, as if we, sweet innocents, one way or another never provided any welcoming terrain for these substances. There’s always some invisible “enemy” out there to get us – that is the idea that our betters have been promoting far back as I can remember and a great deal longer than that.
@Greg. We ARE a shit hole country underneath our apparently clean lives. Time to quit blaming viruses for that. I am not going to lose sleep if lots of people are happy to be endlessly sanitizing their hands, wearing face diapers and staying indoors 24/7 instead of doing what it takes to promote their own and their children’s overall health.

Hey, we can get rid of the viruses and bacteria by “bullets flying everywhere,” right?  Yes, indeed, right after the bullets take out the plankton and the eyelash mites.


Meanwhile, Johnson calls me “insane.” Johnson’s apparent definition of “insanity” – you  are “insane” if you criticize him and he knows he can’t win any sort of debate against you.

Time to hunt, and let the streets of Berlin run red with blood!  Yes we can!  Bullets flying everywhere!

Super-duper missiles!  Here’s a question. Why is “apocalypse likely” when America develops those weapons, but no one said a word when the Russians and Chinese started first?

The difference between slaughter of cattle and the whales is that the killing of farm animals is a necessary evil to provide food, whereas the killing of whales is unnecessary. Bambi’s mom but in the water.

Greg often alludes that “some of the best and worst people he has met have been wns.” I find this cryptic remark intriguing. I wish he would elaborate what he means, preferably by providing some character sketches.

Best: Buttercup Dew, James O’Meara, Jack Donovan


Worst: Ted Sallis, Richard Spencer, Andrew Joyce


Actually, I have written the same thing on my blogs.  Guess who some of the worst people from my perspective would be.

BreidablikPosted May 19, 2020 at 4:41 am | PermalinkInteresting answers to the “million dollar question” about the Viking and Germanic warrior spirit. What you said about our conscientiousness and moral communities helps to explain why the Germanic countries are so guilt-ridden today.

Germany feel guilty for the Holocaust, Britain for its colonialism, America for its slavery, South Africa for its apartheid, and Sweden for its racial biology. And the ruling elites of these countries try to atone for these historical “sins” by favouring mass immigration and multiculturalism. As far as I can see there is no real equivalent to this in southern or eastern Europe

Sure, that’s why there’s no “mass immigration and multiculturalism” in, say, Italy, right?  I mean, isn’t that right?  Yes?  Certainly, right?


Behold the Afrowop.

Colonization for the 21st century: John Morgan in Hungary.


Yes, Greg, the same message of The Occidental Observer and Red Ice. Yet, you say nothing against those outlets.  Time to call me “insane” again I suppose, to deflect attention from your hypocritical focus on playing “movement politics” instead of doing the right thing. Perhaps you can discuss it all with this individual “under house arrest.”  Freedom!  Fight da gummint!


Question – are people on the Far Right criticizing Tucker Carlson now because of Carlson’s continued (justified) criticism of China.  Remember, the entire “movement” is tainted by HBD, and HBD literally worships the Chinese.

re: Faroe Island culling
I think Frodi’s position here is rather weak. Arguing in favor of tradition simply for tradition’s sake isn’t going to convince anyone. Furthermore it ignores what is moral. The Chinese can claim that their cruel mistreatment of animals must continue because it’s their tradition.
Those who oppose the whale hunt are doing so on moral grounds (essentially arguing the slaughter is inhumane). Frodi recognizes this, and so compares the method of slaughter to that of cows on a farm. This is disingenuous. Cows are stunned and killed instantly with a bolt to the brain. Do the whales lose consciousness and die as quickly? If not, the methods used are not comparable. In fact, it seems the whale slaughter has more in common with kosher or halal slaughter than that which puts beef in our supermarkets.
The most convincing argument for the continuation of the slaughter is that those who engage in it are utterly destitute and require it to feed themselves. This is true of some seal hunts in Alaska, for example. However I doubt the Scandis are so poor and isolated that they can’t find some other way to feed themselves. Therefore arguing for it on economic grounds is another dead end.

Frodi is an idiot.  What do you expect from someone still associated with Johnson?
