Der news.

Sunic foreword to Bolton’s Yockey book.

That’s the foreword to the book itself; insofar as I know, currently, I am the only one who has written an independent review of this important work.  That speaks volumes about the pathetic, low-rent “movement.”

Getting back to Sunic’s foreword, I’d like to say that Tom is one of the finest people involved in nationalist activism.  I don’t agree with everything he’s ever written of course, but people can disagree on issues but still think highly of each other, respect fine work, and note their essential decency as human beings.  Indeed, I sometimes disagree with Salter on some issues (as recently chronicled in posts here), but I cannot think of anyone whose work I respect more.  As I’ve said a number of times before – Salter deserves a Nobel Prize for his work on ethnic genetic interests; in a fair world, one not dominated by anti-White leftist politics, that Prize would be awarded.

By the way, Sunic probably doesn’t remember it, but he and I had a pleasant phone conversation many (15+) years ago.  A good man.

More evidence (if you needed any) that Sallis is right once again: the Danish left is farstreaming right.  Evidence to support mainstreaming: zero.  Evidence to support farstreaming: Trump, Orban, Denmark, etc.

Right after they tell you that population numbers are concerning they’ll tell you that there aren’t enough babies being born in Western countries requiring a endless flood of immigrants.

Another victory for farstreaming: Chickenwire Vic wins again.

Read this.

Orban moves ever more to the Right, and goes from strength to strength.  Jobbik engages in centrist mainstreaming, and achieves results so modest they are equivalent to a moral defeat.

There is in fact NO evidence whatsoever that mainstreaming works as an effective electoral strategy.  Quite the opposite: mainstreaming usually ends in humiliating defeat, while prudent farstreaming, in the right circumstances, yields the desired results.

Mainstreaming, just like the “gateway hypothesis,” is one of those ideas that sounds reasonable in theory, but has not a single shred of empirical evidence to back it up.   

More anti-White animus displayed by the Yellow Fist of Hatred.  No worries though.  According to the Silkers. These disgruntled Asiatrices will be “the border guards of the West.” All they have to do is let their natural black hair color shine through, pick up their trusty rifle, and start ordering about mewling White manlets.  It’s all good!

Don’t forget that borderline retarded cuck nagger Roissy predicted that Bezos would turn “hard right” politically because Bezos looks “jacked” after working out.  After all, as we know, every single male with a muscular physique (or what passes for it) is a budding Nutzi, that’s how political affiliations are formed.

Yes, I agree, what Nehlen did was unforgiveable,  But what caught my eye was this”

Then in 2018 (several weeks after my Wage the Battle review), Jared Taylor distanced himself from him. Initially Nehlen had been invited to speak at the 2018 American Renaissance conference. But after taking a close look at Nehlen’s campaign, Taylor disinvited him from speaking (but not from the conference). Nehlen responded by embargoing the conference altogether and making a big stink about it on social media.
For me, that’s when the cracks in the dam began to appear. Sure, Nehlen had his supporters, many of whom accused Taylor of cucking to the Jews. But other voices began to pop up. Nehlen’s campaign does lack a certain amount of class. Maybe Taylor was put off by that. Nehlen does kind of beat a dead horse with the Jew thing as well. Maybe that made Taylor uncomfortable. Nehlen also had some nice things to say about Louis Farrakhan, didn’t he? That certainly wouldn’t fly at Amren. So maybe Taylor wasn’t completely out of his mind by disinviting him. Furthermore, Nehlen certainly could have handled it better. He could have realized that the JQ simply isn’t Taylor’s thing…

Yeah, sure, it was about Farrakhan, which is why Amren itself endorsed Farrakhan’s Black separatism.

Why can’t the “old boys network” be honest and just admit the disinvitation of Nehlen was mainly – likely only – for one reason?

In the Alt Wrong hierarchy, Jews (and Asians) are right there at the top, certainly valued much more than grossly inferior groups like Romanians and Italians.  What’s the chance that an anti-White ethnic activist would be disinvited from the conference?  

Sallis is Right Again: Farstreaming

Orban moving right.

Read this.

Recall this?

Well, my comment that Jobbik is to Orban’s right no longer holds, because Orban has continued farstreaming to his right, while Jobbik has been mainstreaming to the center.  The two ships have passed each other on the sea of political rhetoric.

Outcome:

Orban farstreaming to the right = sailing to political success.

Jobbik mainstreaming to the center = sinking and hemorrhaging supporters.

Mainstreaming may be good in theory but has no empirical support in practice. Mainstreaming fails.  Pushing the radical envelope succeeds.  Sallis is correct…again.

The Farstreaming Problem

The (partially) failed counterpart to mainstreaming.

I have long been an opponent of the concept of mainstreaming in politics, generally defined as radical political elements moderating their beliefs and rhetoric to move to the center and gain votes for electoral success; in rightist terms, it means moderation of the Far Right to a more centrist orientation with the objective of electoral victory.

Mainstreaming has been for the most part practiced by nationalists in Western Europe (and the Anglosphere, such as Australia) and has exhibited a virtually unbroken record of dismal failure.  Its next test will be this year’s electoral quest of Marine Le Pen. If she is, against all odds elected, and if elected actually enacts useful policies, then mainstreaming will have been partially – not completely – vindicated, and shown to have some limited utility in specific contexts.  If, however, she fails, then any reasonable person may conclude that mainstreaming has been, or should be, completely discredited (at least for the foreseeable future, and, hopefully, permanently). Mainstreaming fails for many reasons, foremost in that the mainstreamers adopt views centrist enough so they can be co-opted by the Establishment Center-Right, while at the same time the mainstreamers are still smeared by the System as “extremists” – leading rightist voters to gravitate to the “safe” choice – the Center-Right.  Furthermore, mainstreaming strikes principled people as dishonest, dishonorable, and cowardly, which, combined with its history of continued failure, makes its adherents seem both of questionable intelligence as well as of questionable character.

But there is a mirror image of mainstreaming that I term “farstreaming” – those at the center moving toward the political fringes in order to exploit populist political niche space and thus ensure electoral success. Sometimes moving to the center is not the key to success, sometimes the voters want more “red meat.”  Particularly in situations where such “red meat” is lacking, or is viewed as too extreme or too disorganized for success, opportunities exist for moderates to reinvent themselves as ”radicals.”  From the rightist perspective, this would be men (and women) of the Center-Right moving toward a Hard Right, if not Far Right, direction, and espousing nationalist-populist viewpoints.  

I’ve previously discussed how the Trump campaign in America was not mainstreaming; actually, it is a textbook case of farstreaming, as Trump adopted rhetoric and positions far to the right of his previously stated opinions on those subjects.  After all, in 2012, Trump criticized Mitt Romney’s entirely reasonable self-deportation idea, while in 2016 Trump moved so far to the right on the immigration issue he had the Alt Right behaving like a bunch of hysterical besotted schoolgirls. Trump’s populism led to electoral success, and now we see the inevitable outcome: betraying his base as he moves back to the center and flip-flops on many of the issues that attracted that base to begin with.

Hence, one major danger in farstreaming – the farstreamers are as dishonest as the mainstreamers, albeit in the opposite direction, and, lacking any deep personal and philosophical connection to their recently adopted positions, they are primed to betray those positions and fall back toward the center at the earliest opportunity.

A more encouraging example of farstreaming is Orban in Hungary, who has so far not betrayed his base and stayed true to his rhetoric (to a point, and I’ve criticized Orban at this blog for his half-way measures).  Point is, Orban was never a Nutzi-turned-moderate; indeed, his Fidesz party was originally libertarian and quite centrist.  The difference in Hungary is that Orban has a credible political threat to his right in Jobbik; the Hungarian people are more nationalist than are (White) Americans, and Orban must be aware that if he cucked like Trump his political support would crater. Thus, the nationalist trends in Hungarian politics and society, represented by Jobbik, exert a political gravitational pull on Orban to the right.  In America, candidate Trump was as rightward as any credible political candidate has been in recent times; with no political threat on his right, Trump feels comfortable in cucking to the center.  The empty rightist political niche space thus emptied needs to be filled with genuine nationalist-populists, who should then move the political window even further right into explicitly pro-White politics.

In summary, both mainstreaming and farstreaming are long-term dead ends for our cause; even in Hungary it is unstable long-term.  Either the Hungarian Far-Right will achieve greater success or they will eventually fade; if the former, farstreamers will be superfluous, if the latter, farstreaming will lose relevance and Orban and his types will move toward the center.  The other possibility is that the Hungarian Far Right mainstreams and becomes indistinguishable from Fidesz, at which point, farstreaming will lose relevance as well.

We need genuine ethnoracial nationalist politics.
