Valhalla Awaits

And other odds and ends.

However, my theory is based on the proposal that Western uniqueness derives ultimately from unique ancestral environments in northwestern Europe, with emphasis on a north-south genetic cline in the relative genetic contributions of northern hunter gatherers, Indo-Europeans, and Early Farmers from the Middle East.

So, essentially, the “West” is “northwestern Europe.” The interesting thing is how the reality of Der Movement is converging on my parody of it. Long time readers of EGI Notes are aware of my description of Der Movement as believing that Europe is only that which is to the north of Vienna and the West of Berlin, and now, essentially, the HBD-Nordicists are promoting “theories” that essentially say in actuality (substituting “the West” for “Europe”) what I have been writing in mocking ridicule. Basically, parodying Der Movement is becoming ever more difficult, because “movement” reality converges upon, and then surpasses, what one says in sarcasm.

The aforementioned “theory” works only if you believe that areas of Europe outside of the northwest, including areas enriched in Neolithic farmer ancestry, are not part of the West, and that the peoples deriving from those areas are not genetically constituted for traits defining “Westerness.”  .

I don’t know of any serious scholar of the West (*) who believes that.  And Yockey, whose knowledge and understanding of Western history and culture dwarfs that of various “movement” “rock stars” certainly didn’t believe it.

This is just warmed over Kempism, “just so” stories promoting intra-European division and doing nothing but supporting my contention that so-called “White ethnics” have no place in Der Movement, Inc. and instead should look to the formation of a New Movement based on different principles. 

But I suppose that after the grand failure of the Alt Right – the Alt Right being supported by all the august “movement” personages at the same time I was presciently denouncing it – squandering the world historical opportunity of 2016, there is an impetus to devise new intellectual defenses of the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program. Only Pure Genetic Westerners need apply!  Spencer and Johnson to the vanguard, oh glorious leaders, grant us final victory!  Valhalla awaits!

The ultimate outcome of HBD – enslaving Whites thus to inscrutable Chinamen..

The Arctic Alliance marches on.

For the benefit of new readers, I want to once again clarify my position on HBD. When I write that HBD is a political movement aimed at subjugating Whites to Jews and Asians, I do NOT mean that all, or most, or even many, HBDers actually have that as their explicit agenda.  I do NOT mean that most HBDers cackle with delight as they plan the downfall of the White race, and I do NOT mean that masses of HBDers get together to plan the subjugation of Whites. Most White HBDers are no doubt sincere in their beliefs; they are useful idiots being manipulated by the relatively small number of HBDers who do actually have an anti-White agenda of replacing kinship-based racialism with aracial cognitive elitism, setting up a racial hierarchy with Jews and Asians on top, and promoting Jeursasian mongrelization.  


Thus, following the tenets of HBD to their logical conclusions will inexorably lead to the aforementioned subjugation of Whites to Jews and Asians, even though most (White) HBDers would deny that they desire such an outcome and would scoff at the possibility. However, the wire-pullers behind the scenes know very well how to make the HBD poison more palatable to the dupes, how to add sugar to the poison to make it go down more effectively. If HBD rhetoric was just Jewish and Asian supremacism, it would not have such a following.  But they add to the mix obvious truths about Negroes that add credibility to the dogma, and then they titillate the more sweaty of the ethnic fetishists by putting Afrowops at the bottom of the racial hierarchy, and by asserting that while Med swarthoids are cringing stupid subhumans, Nords are really smart – albeit not as smart as Jews and Asians. And Nords, and only Nords, are the real Westerners! Just ignore the leering Levantines and grinning Orientals behind the curtain. Move on, move on, there’s nothing to see there!  And the useful idiots eat it all up.  With gusto.


Do not misunderstand me. I am not denying important differences between Europeans, and I have discussed such differences here, including cognitive and behavioral differences – and some of those differences may be linked to national variation in culture and achievement. Where I differ is the idea that a particular set of traits associated with one subsection of Europeans is what defines “the West.”  Instead, I believe “the West” is best defined as an emergent property of the traits and national histories of all the types of (Western) Europeans, North and South, together. The complexity and richness of the West and its civilization is, I believe, also due the synergy of these various traits and histories. All of these components are important and cannot be isolated; the West is not just a derivation of one set of the European peoples. The fact that the “theory” in question is merely a variation of the same Guntherite Kempism we’ve all seen before suggests that it is, ultimately, an intellectual defense for the same old tired “movement” dogma.


Further, the idea that varying percentages of the same types of ancestral stocks can be so starkly genetically deterministic so as to allow for a sharp line to be drawn with respect to behavioral-cultural traits is an extreme stretch. If you are willing to go that far, then you would have to consider all of the implications. Is smug, self-righteous, destructive sick SJWism also so biologically deterministic, with such sharp territorial delineations?  Is hyper-collectivist conformism of belief in that SJWism equally so genetically and biologically deterministic?


And, I must say, accusations of “ethnic hurt feelings” are transparent projection. Long time readers of EGI Notes have read some extremely harsh criticisms here of swarthoids and other “White ethnics,” up to and including calling for a genetic culling of the worst 10-20% of the population (that could be done via sterilization instead of other measures). This blog has also praised the English and Germans as being the top of the European crop in terms of cultural, technical, scientific, humanistic intellectual, etc. achievements over the last few centuries; in addition, I’ve always been extremely impressed by the per capita technical achievements of the Scots. Durocher was alerted to North vs. South European differences in brain structure from this blog. I write what I perceive as the truth about any and all groups, regardless of “ethnic feelings” – hurt or otherwise.  In contrast, when is the last time you read or heard any of the Nord-fetishists say anything critical about Northwest Europeans – other than to assert that they are just too noble and altruistic and disinterested for their own good, “criticism” that is actually thinly veiled praise?  And those guys certainly have nothing good to say, ever, about swarthoids or hunkies. They are the ones whose “ethnic feelings” preclude them from ever legitimately criticizing their own group or praising other types of Europeans. Pot, meet kettle.

Speaking of HBD – I don’t know, maybe this reflects neurotic behavior?  Or just being a juvenile jackass?  Actually I don’t mind HBDers acting the buffoon.  It fits.  Like a glove.

Watch this.   That is the future of America.  And if you think that’s just an isolated case, you are in complete delusional denial. That’s the norm in American academia today, not the exception. Enjoy! And while the guy who made the video may be a milquetoast civic nationalist type, we should thank him for bringing this to our attention, and speaking out in class against the madness.


By the way, I just noticed that Greg Johnson describes himself thus:

My Facebook account has been terminated because I am a white advocate.

Not White nationalist, but “white advocate.” The ethnonationalist-HBD-Nordicist alliance continues to take shape.  “White advocate”- please.

Fisking Zman

Zman: A horribly dishonest and moronic turd.

With the leaked audio of Richard Spencer’s embarrassing tantrum after the Charlottesville riot, the book can finally be closed on the alt-right. 

Hey Zman and all the other losers – when you were all on the “Alt Right train,” I was OPENLY and CONSISTENTLY attacking the Alt Right on this blog, predicting (and hoping for) its downfall, and lamenting the pernicious effect the Alt Right plague was having on (American) racial nationalism. I was writing that as far back as 2015-2016. Who cares what you 20-20 hindsight zero-judgment retardates have to say now? You’re all at least three years too late.

If there was anyone still using the term as anything but an epithet, they will no doubt drop it. The first political movement to grow out of internet culture has come and an ignominious end. 

Yes, WN 2.0 failed.  Millennial “youth culture” as the center of racial activism failed.  The kids are not all right (no pun intended), and they never were.  Beavis-and-Butthead White nationalism was a non-starter from the very beginning.

While it may no longer be a thing, examining what they did right and what they did wrong, especially what they did wrong, can be useful for dissidents.

And Zman proceeds to make a mockery of the analysis.

The primary reason the alt-right failed was that it was never a coherent movement with an intellectual center. It was just a ragtag collection of people with a gripe about something going on in the culture. There were those who recently discovered Kevin McDonald, so they worked that angle. Others had discovered race realism and figured out why libertarianism was a dead end. Then there were the boys who did not like what was happening with feminism. The alt-right was a grievance society.

No, the Alt Right was simply the worst parts of WN 1.0 painted over with the most juvenile and embarrassing aspects of Millennial juvenile jackassery. WN 2.0 = WN 1.0 – intellectualism + jackassery.

Now, some would argue that the concept of the ethno-state was the vision of the alt-right, but that was another reason it failed. Richard Spencer would have been more successful claiming he was going to lead the alt-right back to the Shire, so they could reunite with their hobbit brothers. 

Shire?  Hobbits?  Sounds more like Greg Johnson.

Setting your goal as the creation of a (sic) what is basically white Wakanda is not serious. As a theoretical construct to use as a critique of multiculturalism it could have been useful, but as a goal it was absurd.

What nonsense. Just saying so doesn’t make it true. What does Zman offer as an alternative?  America is dead as a nation – the totality of his own writing and his whining about the current state of affairs should be all the evidence he needs.  Or read just one day’s worth of news stories at Amren – that should cure you of any delusion that America still exists as any sort of viable or salvageable nation. Should we just give up?  Gibber about Yogi Bear and The Men Who Can’t Tell Time?  Follow “cognitive elitism” and form a racially mongrelized Jeurasian caste ruling over Blacks and Browns, as Brazil North?  What?  There is nothing inherently wrong with the concept of the ethnostate. It is just promoted by inarticulate morons and grifters, and the White population hasn’t suffered enough yet to break away from their comforts and their delusions about an America long since dead. America is a corpse, but it hasn’t been dead long enough for the stench of its rot to become bad enough to motivate feckless Whites.

The thing is, racial nationalism is not a new thing. Arab nationalism was a legitimate movement in the middle of the last century. There was a pan-African nationalism that rose up in the later years of colonialism. Both failed in their stated goals, because race is a terrible way to organize people. 

Absolute horseshit. The HBD dividers and the ethnonationalist shills always like saying this, but there is no real problem with inherent White solidarity in America, particularly when the dividing line of White vs. Color is salient.  And with what is happening in Europe, White solidarity is becoming ever more possible there. Why did they all agree to join the EU in the first place?

Instead of pointing the finger of blame where it belongs – at a failed movement and its affirmative action ”leadership” – all sorts of absurdities must be invented. What kind of idiot conflates White nationalism with the nationalism of Arabs and Africans?  If White nationalism was floated, say, 100 years ago, then the analogies with pan-Arab nationalism may have had some validity.  But there are no longer any national rivalries in the White world at the level that divide to the extent as what happened with the Arabs. Yes, for example, Iraq invaded Kuwait…I doubt we’ll see Germany invade France again any time soon.  History is not static. As conflicts move from the level of nation vs. nation to that of civilization vs. civilization, then race (and culture) do become quite reasonable ways to organize people. As regards pan-African nationalism, how can anyone who lives in “Lagos” take that seriously?  Has Zman eaten too many tainted Baltimore crab cakes?

Loyalty starts with family, then extended family and finally the extended family of ethnicity. Race is a general grouping of people that corresponds to the big geographical groupings. Race is not ethnicity.

Moron. Most White Americans are of mixed ethnic origins.  Should the right side of their body start warring against their left side?  Race is a “general grouping of people?”  Next, he’ll be saying it is a “social construct.”  Race is the next step up from ethnicity. Why stop the extended family at ethnicity? Because it suits your agenda of divisive HBD ethnonationalism?

This is why American dissidents need to be careful to acknowledge the geographic diversity of occidentals in North America. The old stock Yankee living in New Hampshire may share the same opinions on biology as a Southerner, but they will remain men from different tribes. 

Is “Southerner” an ethnicity?  

This diversity among white people in America is why the people in charge have been so successful. They exploit these differences to turn a majority population into a hated minority. 

Idiot. Does a rightist “Yankee” have more in common with a blue-haired SJW fatty “Yankee” than with a rightist “Southerner?”  What an insipid level of “analysis” from this idiot. Different tribes?  On what basis?  How about ethnicity?  There are divisions within nations and within ethnic groups as well.  There are divisions within “Yankees” and within “Southerners.”  So? When the similarities outweigh the differences, particularly when opposed to an alien outgroup, the smaller tribes coalesce into a larger one, until the final boundaries are reached – the West Against the Rest.

That reality must be respected.

Zman’s lies must be exposed.  What the reality really is – these guys need to make excuses for the utter failure of Der Movement and its “high trust societal consensus hunter gatherer” Quota Queen affirmative action “leadership.”  There is nothing inherently wrong with the concept of an ethnostate. Race is a perfectly reasonable way of organizing people.  Works well enough at Amren meetings, eh, as long as all are racially aware.  A real tribe is that of racially aware Whites. I haven’t heard any “Yankees” and “Southerners” recreating the Battle of Gettysburg at Amren.

That brings up another failure of the alt-right. It never had intellectual heft. 

Note to retard – the entire “movement” never had intellectual heft.  It has always been a zero.  What made the Alt Right worse was that it was less than zero – a negative.

Richard Spencer liked to cast himself as a philosopher, but he was always a dilettante, more concerned with media attention, than thinking about politics. He was a lot like Barak (sic) Obama, in that his fans would say he was inspirational, but they could never tell you anything he said that was memorable, other than the gaffes. His innumeracy prevented him from making an affirmative argument about biology.

Note to retard – as a STEM person I can tell you that NONE of these guys – even the academic “rock stars”- can make an “affirmative argument about biology.”

Otherwise, no one filled the intellectual void at the center of the alt-right. Some of the writers for Counter Currents gave it a go, but they were always a bit wary of what was going on with the alt-right. 

Gaslighting lies.  Johnson was 100% on the Alt Right train, pontificating that the “Alt Right is White nationalism or it is nothing at all.”  Yes…all those Counter-Currents intellectuals, like Jeelvy, right?

Of course, one reason the movement failed to attract smart people toiling in the intellectual fields of bio-diversity is the movement had a lot of cranks. In fact, the alt-right seemed to be a crank magnet. It was a freak show of e-celebs, who were never all that interested in politics. Guys like Milo and Cerno are good examples. 

Only them, right?  Not Johnson or Lynn or Dutton or Derbyshire or MacDonald or Spencer or Duke or Taylor, et al?

That is the one great lesson from the alt-right. No organization can survive incompetence at the top. Whether you are forming a local group to clean up a park or you are organizing for a larger political goal, you have to have high quality people at the center of it. The alt-right made a fetish of not purging people, but that became a doggy door for the worst sorts of people to enter their movement. No matter how cheeky or clever your internet memes, you can’t win counting on losers.

Losers like Zman, Greg Johnson, and Richard Spencer et al.

Self-policing, of course, gets a lot easier in real life organizing. On-line, people are free to play any character they like. In real life, people quickly sort the wheat from the chaff, so excluding grifters and lunatics gets easier. Good people tend to boil off the bad people, through the natural social mechanisms. That is the most important lesson of the alt-right. The internet is not real. It cannot replace real life organizing. If there is going to be a resistance to what is happening, it must happen in the real world.

The real world – like Hermannson and Pilleater?  In real life, the “movement” failed miserably, because the “grifters and lunatics” are the “leaders” at the top. They are not going to “boil off” themselves, and the rank-and-file are 100% on board with the ethnic affirmative action program. What we have is a human form of Gresham’s Law – the bad people drive out the good.  Listen to the Pilleater chronicles, and tell us again how all that real life organizing worked out so well.

Also, based on Zman’s stupidity – the real life organizing should be stratified by tribes.  Greg Johnson should never go to Denmark, Norway, or Portugal.  He should only travel to the UK – his ethnic ancestry, right?  Amren should be segregated based on ethnicity and Yankee vs. Southerner.  Indeed, the only people who should read Zman’s blog are those of the same ethnicity as him.  All else are different tribes with different interests, right?  Moron and hypocrite.

Advice from a Counter-Currents commentator:

Rob Bottom

Posted October 19, 2019 at 8:30 am | Permalink

As mentioned, any attempt to defend oneself will be spun by the media and the authorities as an attack. Not only do we not have the cops on our side, we don’t have the justice system either. I don’t suppose I am suggesting anything new to you.

What we should have at any events are volunteers to film and photograph everything. Guests should arrive at the event with a chaperone / guard(s) who film any altercations or intimidation by the commies, copies of which can be used in court if necessary. Other volunteers should stand outside the event and film everything. These can be put online and used by our army of autists to try to identify specific members of the local antifa group so that they can be held accountable, particularly where they injure someone.

Given the consistency with which these antifa groups disrupt such events, proving they are the aggressors should not be difficult for a half-decent lawyer armed with video documentation of events all around the world. Obviously we can’t expect them to pay much for their crimes, given the state of things, but we can at least defend ourselves from spurious accusations if we take the right precautionary measures.

Of course, those volunteers themselves can be subjects of attack (unless hidden somewhere but still with access to generate photographic evidence), which punts the problem further down the line. Do we need another set of volunteers documenting everything that happens to the first set?  And then a third set to document the second set? 


It’s still a good idea, and worth doing, but, ultimately, we will need people integrated into the System so as to pressure for at least minimal freedom of assembly rights. We need folks running for office, and getting elected at least at the local level. Oh, you ask, what stops these people, the candidates and elected officials, from getting attacked?  In theory, nothing, but if the System actually allows political candidates and/or elected officials to be publicly attacked, with impunity, by leftist thugs, then they may as well close up shop with respect to maintaining any pretense of law and order and “democracy.”  If the System wants things to drop headlong into the abyss of a strife-torn banana republic, with evaporating political legitimacy, then allowing the mainstream political process to be subverted by street violence would be the way to go about doing it. Would they go that far in order to shut down the Right?  In the long run it’s a lose-lose situation for them, but they haven’t been put to the test yet.

Der System is, if anything, even more ludicrously incompetent than is Der Movement. Obviously, any competent “movement” led by a merit-based leadership should have at least a fighting chance against the types of morons who use “admin” as a username and password for sensitive information at a major corporation. What’s next? Username = username and password = password?  That Der Movement keeps on failing, failing miserably, tells you all you need to know about all of the “movement” heroes and “rock stars.”

Another Counter-Currents ethnonationalist infesting the nations of other peoples, taking their women, etc. Once again, Sallis is 100% correct – what these types mean by “ethnonationalism” is actually full-throated, in-your-face ethnoimperialism. What we have here are self-styled racial aristocrats who preach the joys of ethnic homogeneity and sovereignty while blatantly violating the ethnic homogeneity and sovereignty of all groups other than their own.

Pity poor Anton intimidated by all those hulking varsity football player Polish dudes – he needs to commiserate with Deasy, still traumatized by all those Bulgarian faces…in Bulgaria.  Ethnonationalist Johnson, who peddles this hypocritical drivel, either has to be the most majestically self-unaware person on Earth, or he is simply trolling all of us.


Zman the retard:

Now, I do like winter, so the gathering darkness and dropping temperatures is not followed by something I think is awful. In fact, winter is my second favorite month of the year, just behind autumn.

Someone needs to tell this idiot that winter and autumn are seasons, not months.  But what else can you expect from Type I Alt Right Beavis-and-Buttheaders?


I’m always amused by hypocrites who wax poetic about the joys of cold weather and winter, yet live in warmer areas of the country. Granted, Baltimore is not that warm, and does receive the ice that Zman complains about* (so, according to his own standards of behavior, we should all assume an attitude of autumnal schadenfreude over his fear of ice), but, still, it isn’t Maine or North Dakota. That’s similar to all the “movement” heroes and “rock stars” who live in diverse blue state coastal regions, but who regale us about how wonderful all those Mid-Western red state Whitopias are. Those areas are so very, very wonderful that these Type Is do all they can to avoid living there.


*Note to retard: Buy and use microspike shoe/boot crampons, and then walking on ice will be reasonably safe.

Hypocrisy vs. Democratic Multiculturalism

Salter right, Counter-Currents wrong.

First, please note the hypocrisy of Counter-Currents here (yes, I know – using “hypocrisy” and “Counter-Currents” in the same sentence is a perfect example of redundancy). That site is the premier focal point of ethnonationalism in Der Movement, strongly promoting atomized ethnic identities.  Then they run an article criticizing Irish and Italians for identifying ethnically instead of racially.  Inconsistent much?  Oh, they’ll argue that they refer to Europe with respect to ethnonationalism and Cuomo lives in America, not Italy – but so what?  Isn’t the basic principle the same?  And what about Gerry Adams?  He’s an Irishman from Belfast. According to ethnonationalism, he’s Irish, period.  Why critique him then for eschewing some sort of pan-European “Whiteness?’’  Or is it that the ethnonationalism of Counter-Currents has a purely personal, and not ideological, basis and thus has no underlying political consistency?  

Second, if we consider approaches to “democratic multiculturalism” then we can say that what Cuomo did was not 100% wrong.  Maybe 90% wrong, but not 100%.  First, he was in error in making an issue out of a non-issue: “Fredo” is not an ethnic slur; indeed, Don Trump, Jr. is labeled as such, and he’s of German-Scottish-Czech ancestry.  Second, Cuomo was even more in error in making it an ethnic rather than a racial issue – instead of complaining about an Italian-specific grievance, it should have been put into the context of being attacked for being a member of an European ethny, an anti-White attack, or at least, an attack against White ethnics.  Or, even if it was put in the language of an ethnic-specific grievance, race could have been introduced in the context of (truthfully) asserting that similar remarks (if we assume the remark actually was offensive, which it was not) would not be made to Blacks and Jews, etc. There are many approaches to a strategy of democratic multiculturalism that benefits Whites as a whole, and not just making it a narrow ethnic appeal to victimhood. Of course, this gets back to the first paragraph above – race-based approaches ultimately have to reject petty nationalism and the whole ethnonationalist mindset.

The key to “democratic multiculturalism” is to delegitimize multiculturalism by making it a tool for majority interests.  As Salter states, multiculturalism as practiced in the West consists of minority group mobilization coupled to majority group atomization and the complete neglect of, and opposition, to majority group interests. Thus, any move toward majority group mobilization runs counter to the entire underlying premise of “Western” multiculturalism.

I have detailed a number of approaches, and responses to leftist reactions, with respect to “democratic multiculturalism.” I urge serious and strategic thinkers – by definition, not individuals who are committed members of Der Movement, Inc. – to consider the overall strategy as well as the specific tactics described to help achieve the goals of that strategy. Remember the saying – “if everyone is my brother I have no brother.” By analogy, if everyone, particularly the majority, partakes of multiculturalism, then there is no multiculturalism. By that point, it is pure sociopolitical chaos, heightening the contradictions of the System, which is what we want (or should want). The key is for people to participate specifically and openly as Whites, to make it clear that this is majoritarian multiculturalism, and not merely atomized White ethnies pretending to be non-White grievance groups. There’s nothing wrong with noting a specifically ethnic component of your complaint, as long as it is in the context of it being a White ethnic group.  Again, a pro-White Cuomo, in response to a real (and not imagined) ethnic slight, could call out the slight as an anti-Italian slur BUT at the same time note that the reason why such slurs are acceptable to the Left is because Italians are a White ethnic group (contra the Nordicists, but that’s another issue), and that Italians are attacked as part of the System’s anti-White bias.  And the same holds for the Irish or any other European-derived ethny. So, the problem is not an ethnic-based complaint, the problem is when the complaint begins and ends with ethnicity, and is not broadened to include race. Ethnicity should simply be a wedge to leverage the issue of race into the conversation. It’s not anti-Italian or anti-Irish bias that is to be presented as the real issue, but anti-White bias manifesting in particular cases as attacks against Italians or the Irish.

By the way, as an aside, this is what Hampton believes “looks very White.” Now, there are of course some Hispanics who are White – people who have no New World admixture and are essentially the same as their European ancestors, as well as some people with very low levels of New World admixture that is not significantly higher than those White Americans whose “Indian Princess” stories are in fact true. So, “White Hispanics” do indeed exist; unfortunately for Hampton, Jessica Alba obviously is not one of them (or at least, does not look like one of them – and it is by physical appearance that Hampton made his comment to begin with).

WWI: The Lie to End All Lies

Contra Johnson’s thesis.

Let’s consider Johnson’s absurd thesis that WWI (and II!) had nothing to do with petty nationalistic competition between European nation states, but instead was due to “empires.”

I will now consider this, excerpts follow (emphasis added) with some comments:

The early years of the 20th century saw tremendous growth in Europe of both population and prosperity. With arts and culture flourishing, few believed a general war possible due to the peaceful cooperation required to maintain increased levels of trade as well as technologies such as the telegraph and railroad. Despite this, numerous social, military, and nationalistic tensions ran beneath the surface. As the great European empires struggled to expand their territory, they were confronted with increasing social unrest at home as new political forces began to emerge.

Nationalistic tensions. Well, everyone seems to recognize this reality except Johnson and his band of liars.  The idea that “empire” was a major driving factor is ludicrous.  Consider: In WWI, the British, French, and Russian empires were allies, even though in past decades and past centuries, these empires were in conflict.  What changed?  Simple – the national interests of the states in question. The fact that they were empires were incidental. There were conflicts of national interests, and imperial considerations were just one manifestation of those national conflicts of interests. By 1914, the rise of Germany was the threat that brought together the convergence of British, French, and Russian interests.  Empires or no empires, the shifting constellations of national interests would have existed and led to war.

Rise of Germany

The main issue.

In the resulting Treaty of Frankfurt which ended the war, France was forced to cede Alsace and Lorraine to Germany. The loss of this territory badly stung the French and was a motivating factor in 1914.

Indeed.  A territorial dispute – local European territory not colonial – was a motivating factor in the rush to war.  Petty nationalism, conflicts between neighboring states, historical enmity and revanchism – all in the mix.

Building a Tangled Web

As we’ll see, the “tangled web” of alliances – Johnson’s vaunted “temporary solutions to temporary problems” – led to the war that helped wreck the White world.

With Germany united, Bismarck began setting about to protect his newly formed empire from foreign attack. 

Empire?  Johnson starts breathing heavily. Unfortunately for him, “empire” in this context is the modern German nation state, cobbled together from an amalgamation of smaller entities.  So, at what point is today’s ethnonationalism merely a current interpretation of past imperialism?  Freedom for Bavaria!

“A Place in the Sun” and the Naval Arms Race

An ambitious leader and the grandson of England’s Queen Victoria, Wilhelm sought to elevate Germany to equal status with the other great powers of Europe. As a result, Germany entered the race for colonies with the goal of becoming an imperial power. 

In other words, Germany’s pursuit of a real empire was a result of petty nationalist competition with Great Britain and France.

These efforts to obtain territory overseas brought Germany into conflict with the other powers, especially France, as the German flag was soon raised over parts of Africa and on islands in the Pacific.

Petty nationalism started the process.  Overseas conflicts were a manifestation of this.

A global power, Britain moved in 1902 to form an alliance with Japan to curtail German ambitions in the Pacific. This was followed by the Entente Cordiale with France in 1904, which while not a military alliance, resolved many of the colonial squabbles and issues between the two nations.

Suddenly, “colonial squabbles” lost their importance in light of the German threat.  If the nations of Europe had been confederated, none of this would have occurred.  Instead we got Johnson’s “temporary alliances.”  Followed by a world war.

This pan-Slavic sentiment was backed Russia who had signed a military agreement to aid Serbia if the nation was attacked by the Austrians.

Yet we are told by some (commentators at Amren) that pan-Slavism is an acceptable alternative to pan-Europeanism.

Turning to their ally, the Austrians inquired regarding the German position on the matter. On July 5, 1914, Wilhelm, downplaying the Russian threat, informed the Austrian ambassador that his nation could “count on Germany’s full support” regardless of the outcome. This “blank check” of support from Germany shaped Vienna’s actions.

Always the troublemakers.

Behind the scenes in Berlin, German officials were eager for a war with Russia but were restrained by the need to make the Russians appear as the aggressors.

Surprise!

The Dominoes Fall

While the German military clamored for war…

I’m shocked, shocked I say.

Early on July 31, Russia began a full mobilization of its forces in preparation for war with Austria-Hungary. This pleased Bethmann-Hollweg who was able to couch German mobilization later that day as a response to the Russians even though it was scheduled to begin regardless. 

My being shocked continues. 

Though it was unlikely that Britain could have remained neutral if France was attacked, it entered the fray that next day when German troops invaded Belgium activating the 1839 Treaty of London. 

Those pesky treaties and alliances again.

On August 6, Austria-Hungary declared war on Russia and six days later entered into hostilities with France and Britain. Thus by August 12, 1914, the Great Powers of Europe were at war and four and a half years of savage bloodshed were to follow.

Thank you, petty nationalism.

(Health warning: The first 30 minutes of this podcast contains a large dose of WW1 Entente propaganda.)
I wish Western nationalists would stop pontificating about and lecturing Eastern Europe. We take care of our corner of the white world, and you take care of yours, that should be the rule in nationalist politics.

They should stop pontificating about Southern Europe as well, a topic about which they clearly know nothing.

We take care of our corner of the white world, and you take care of yours, that should be the rule in nationalist politics.

You would think that “ethnonationalists” would inherently understand that, but, you see, in reality they are ethnoimperialists.  For example, the British-Saxon hybrid John Morgan believes he has the right to live in Hungary, despite not being an ethnic Hungarian, while pontificating about Hungary and lecturing to Hungarians, all the time lauding the alleged virtues of “ethnonationalism.”  It’s “ethnonationalism for me but not for thee” for these imperialistic invasive hypocrites.

Let’s Count the Lies

Counter-Currents represents the greatest Far Right threat to White racial interests.

After the roll call of suckers (i.e., “donors”), we observe a defense of petty nationalism; thus:

1. Johnson complains (with respect to pan-European unity) about “permanent solutions to temporary problems.” There’s two issues with this. First, some of these “temporary problems” are such that they are likely to last for generations, and likely longer; the threat of China is one example. Temporary?  Second, and more fundamentally, why does the idea of confederation or “Imperium” have to be in the context of negativism – responding to some sort of threat?  Why can’t it be about Actualizing a High Culture, as Yockey had as the fundamental foundation of his Imperium idea?  Something else positive?  Space exploration?  High Technics?

2. Then there is the “idea” that the “war threat” of petty nationalism is over, there is no threat of “brother wars” at least in Western Europe – so those concerns are of little worry.  Right…we have Johnson talking about “ethnic cleansing” among Europeans, we have hardcore Nordicism, we have the British fuming over Polish plumbers while embracing Commonwealth Desis and Negroes, we have the ethnoimperialist hypocrisy of certain European ethnies (and Far Right activists) thinking they have the right to colonize the lands of other Europeans. What if the “national interests” of a “sovereign nation” in Europe includes making an alliance with China against a competing European nation?  Do we then descend into Johnson’s war and ethnic cleansing?

3. Johnson’s comments about WWI are completely ahistorical – or perhaps just more Johnsonian gaslighting. No, the cause of WWI was not because there were conflicting empires.  It was, ultimately, about national competition between Great Britain and Germany, the inherent conflict between the rise of Germany and British decline, and then there was the fear and hatred of France for Germany – French revanchism.  And then Johnson has the nerve to talk about WWII and “empires” – while WWII was a PURE example of petty nationalism, of German hegemony and Hitler’s desire to take other people’s lands, of British “balance of power” politics, of French hysteria about Germany, about Italy’s grasping for a national power not based on the actual quality content of people and state, etc. Johnson is being fundamentally dishonest here. How can his donors give money to support his gaslighting?

While I do not agree with everything here, the fundamental thesis is likely correct.  It was the (petty) nationalism of Germany that precipitated the crisis – although I believe others should share the blame; I cite the petty nationalism in other European nations as contributing as well.  But Germany as the focal point makes sense. Just like they wreck Europe today with their self-righteous pathological altruism, back then they wrecked Europe with their aggressive lunatic nationalism. That’s all blasphemy of course for a “movement” that literally worships everything “Germanic.” In any case, Johnson’s thesis about the world wars is a stupid as his thesis about Trump.

4. It is also an outright like that a pan-European confederation would abrogate local sovereignty.  Yockey denied this, I have frequently discussed this – Johnson and his crew of merry liars simply ignore all of this.  

And the rest of the podcast was superficial and imbecilic.  Johnson – “people like us practically work for free” – what a liar, after he talked about the $59,000 he raised so far from his suckers this year.  Some bloggers do indeed work for free but not you, liar.

And can you believe Morgan talking about people living in other people’s nations when this hypocritical invader violates the sovereignty and ethnic homogeneity of the Hungarian people?

“How can Europeans band together to defend their collective interests while preserving their independence and sovereignty?”

They have already done it – it is called NATO.

The next step is to accept the inevitable and disband the UE supranational structure that has been designed to fail and nowdays even threatens to blow up the US/Europe NATO by actions of the same two countries that were responsible for the UE idea in the first place.

Err, idiot, Johnson and his colleagues oppose NATO.  Did you listen to the podcast?

The despicable hater of Southern Europeans Ash Donaldson:

Yikes, Islam is “right about women”? I seem to have boarded the wrong train. Islam and Globohomo are equally worlds apart from the natural relationships between men and women among the Celts, Germans, and Slavs before universalism took root. God (or Gods) save us from all this nonsense about the sanctity of the Muslim womb.

“Celts, Germans, and Slavs”…after all dem wops are just Globohomo Muslims, all of dem dere two foot tall scurrying swarthoid roaches. Counter-Currents promotes Donaldson because Counter-Currents hates Southern Europeans.  Let’s put the cards on the table. Keep on sending in those “D’Nations” you shabbos sud stepandfetchits.  Keep on sending money to people who openly hate you: Johnson, Morgan, Donaldson.  Hey Donaldson, you declare yourself the enemy of Southern Europeans, then they’ll reciprocate.

From the breathless Counter-Currents review of Donaldson’s trashy novel (emphasis added):

Southern Europe has its place in From Her Eyes as well. Despite often appearing as Christian villains, the Romans play a big part in the narrative, since Donaldson and the characters themselves rely heavily on Roman sources such as Plutarch and Tacitus. The ancient Greeks are remembered perhaps more fondly, with Xenophon, Herodotus, and the Delphic Oracle figuring prominently in the story. Aethelstan’s adoptive father is named Leonidas, after the Spartan King who faced the Persians at Thermopylae.

Leonidas is also where the Slavic connection comes into play. Leonidas was Hungarian by birth and took part in the defense of Budapest against the Muslim invaders as a teenager.

Putting aside that Hungarians are not Slavic, you idiot, well, yes, Southern Europe does have a role to play here – as villains, as historians commenting on those noble Celts and Germans, as folks who give their names to others (Leonidas the Hungarian – laughter).  So – what?  Essentially, Southern Europe’s role here is the same as that of Muslims and Negroes, enemies of Ash Donaldson.  Enemies of Counter-Currents as well. But, again, when you declare someone as your enemy, don’t be surprised when they respond in kind.  I hope that any Italians, Greeks, Iberians, Balkan peoples, etc. reading this blog post understand full well that Counter-Currents and Ash Donaldson are your enemies.  Not because you ever did anything to them; simply because they hate you for what you are. There is nothing you can do, therefore, to end their implacable hatred for you, so you may as well return it.

More news:

See this.  Strom’s criticism of Trump is good, as well as his open declaration that Trump’s right-wing populism during the campaign was simply a calculated ploy to win votes – something that everyone today realizes and admits, except those whose egos and pocketbooks are tied to lying otherwise.

Strom knows full well that he is not the only person on the Far Right who was openly skeptical about Trump as far back as 2016-2016.  I frequently cite Strom as a fellow Trump-skeptic; it would be good if he would return the favor.  I say that not out of pettiness or ego, but out of principle.  If you guys want your racial nationalism to be successful, then you should support those who show good judgment, and criticize those who do not.  Indeed, we have some on the Far Right who today still lie that Trump was “sincere” and “a man of genuine greatness.”  Surely, Strom knows this.  Why doesn’t he call it out?  

Strom’s comments about socialism are also correct, and akin to my own ideas on the subject, discussed at this blog previously.

See this.  That’s good, but note two things.  First, it is the administration of Donald “the last chance for White America” Trump that is doing this; can any of the slavish Trump supporters on the Far Right admit that they were wrong about him?  Second, we note that it is the ADL that is opposed to Amren and to White advocacy and who uses lies to achieve their goals. It’s not Romanians or Italians organizing to shutdown Amren, but a certain other group.  Are we learning yet?

Well, well, well….  Blasphemy!  Remember as the Quota Queens tell us:  #Greta is right!

What Do They Really Mean by “Ethnonationalism?”

What they really mean.

What do the likes of Johnson-Morgan-Munro-Deasy-Farrell really mean by the term “ethnonationalism?”

What they pretend to mean is something like this:

Ethnonationalism means that every ethnic group will have their own homeland for their exclusive use; every people will have their ethnically homogeneous nations in which they’ll be free of interference and invasion from other peoples.

Very well.

However, based on their behavior, their attitudes, what they do and what they accept, the real meaning is:

Ethnonationalism means that Northwest Europeans will have homelands for their exclusive use, homogeneous nations in which they’ll be free of interference and invasion from other peoples; at the same time, Northwest Europeans will have the right to live wherever they choose, including in other people’s nations, interfering with the ability of those other peoples to live in the manner they wish among their own kind.

Hungary? Certainly!  After all, Budapest is not for the Hungarians; instead it is an “open city,” available for colonization by the racial masters and betters of the lowly Magyars. Italy?  Certainly!  Live there, mock woppish ineptness, while, of course, bedding Italian women. Romania? Certainly!  Live there while writing the most offensively scurrilous screeds against the Romanian people and, of course, mating with Romanian women. Bulgaria!  Certainly!  Swagger through the streets like you own the place, desperately trying to avoid being traumatized by the faces of the natives (which “take some getting used to” – in their own country!). Iberia? Certainly!  Let’s get those dago wogs out of Britain, while allowing British expats to colonize Spain with their ethnically exclusive enclaves.

For these types, “ethnonationalism” is really ethnoimperialism; they want to be the feudal lords of a racial aristocracy. However, other peoples, who are true ethnic and racial nationalists, may have different ideas about this.

I’d also like to point out that this attitude of the ethnonationalists on the Right mirrors similar attitudes of “we’ll do whatever the hell we want” from their co-ethnics on the Left. Thus, we see some people who believe they have the right to forcibly dump Afro-Asiatic invaders into the living spaces of other peoples. The attitude is exactly the same.

Am I being unfair to any Far Right “activists?”  Well, they always have the opportunity to redeem themselves. Morgan, for example, can publicly admit to being a hypocrite, apologize, and leave Hungary, pledging never to return.  That would be a useful start in ending the hypocrisy.
