Apostate Woes

And other news.  Some notes on scifi.

Read this utter nonsense.  That represents the archetype of the stereotypical silly, superficial, moronic, and childish apostate from Far Right politics.

First, we note that this individual’s involvement in Far Right politics was motivated by personal issues, not by ideology nor by any sort of deep ideological commitment and intellectual thought process. These types are always motivated by personal problems, a need to “belong,” a need to “rebel” against family and society, a childish need to “shock “and draw attention to themselves in a narcissistic, infantile manner. Thus, if they no longer have their personal issues, or if they discover that their Far Right comrades are more interested in actualizing political and metapolitical goals rather than being a social worker for defective losers, or if these types satisfy their person needs and mask their inadequacies through other activities, then they no longer require, or depend upon, their masquerade as a “Far Right activist.”  As there was never any authentic ideological motivation or commitment, the loss of their personal need for self-validation through rightist politics results in repudiation of their insincere belief system.  Indeed, they lash out at authentic Far Right activists who they see as “failing them,” rather than understanding that the reverse is true.  Truly pathetic.

Second, such specimens exhibit a truly childish worldview in which the objective Threat of Color must mean that every single Colored on the face of the Earth is a hostile, White-hating, criminal monster. Thus, finding some Colored individuals, even just one, who do not behave as depraved monsters is sufficient for these faux-activists to decide that the entire Colored Threat is false. This is reflective of their navel-gazing, highly personal view of rightist politics.  It’s not that masses of Coloreds, on a global level, are a threat to White racial interests; oh no, their focus is on how individual Coloreds interact with them personally.  Meet a single friendly Negro who doesn’t bash your head in and steal your wallet and your entire racial worldview immediately evaporates.  All of the objective facts that ostensibly motivated your political activism evaporate if some non-White nods hello to you on the street.  It sounds ludicrous, but this is actually the “epiphany” that many of these airheaded nitwits actually have.


Ultimately, the objection of these apostates is that have been personally disappointed by the “movement.”  It didn’t satisfy their personal and private needs and wants. Of course,the same can be said, to a lesser degree, of non-apostates who simply, quietly drop out of the “movement” “scene” without making a fuss about it.  I remember being quite stunned by one drop-out of WN 1.0 analog activism who explained himself to me thus  -“they (note: his “movement” colleagues) only pretended to like me because of the work I was doing for the group, they didn’t like me for who I am; they didn’t care about me as a person.”  Not wanting to be rude, and not wanting to add to his “emotional trauma,” I hid how shocked I was by that comment, but I remember thinking – of course that is true, how could you ever been so naive to believe otherwise?  


Why do people working together on a project, for a cause, have to like each other, and be genuine, caring friends?  That seems to me to be a quite feminine attitude – we all must hold hands, tiptoe through the tulips, and agonize about our “feelings.” No. Employees at a company do not have to like each other, players on a sports team do not have to like each other, faculty in an academic department do not have to like each other, students in the same class do not have to like each other, and people collaborating in a “movement” do not have to like each other either. Any friendships and/or relationships that develop are a byproduct, a side-effect, of the official interaction; it is not required or in any way necessary. Likewise, a “movement” does not have to satisfy the personal needs and desires of an activist. If it does so, that’s great, but it is no necessary (granted, the “movement” must not repulse its activists, but the lack of a negative is not the same as the presence of a positive).  


Anyone who leaves a “movement” because of personal disappointment in how it affected them in the sense of not fixing their deep-seated issues is not the sort of person who should have been involved in that “movement” to begin with. The problem is not Normal Lowell. The problem is the idiot who wrote that article.

This is one reason I vehemently oppose the “big tent” strategy supported by poor judgment, failed Quota Queen “leaders.” Yes, we should have outreach.  Yes, we need to recruit.  Yes, we need to reach out to the White masses.  Yes, eventually, we want a mass movement. But, the leadership cadre, the activist core, the human material that makes up your movement – assuming it is a real movement and not a fraud – need to be high quality, genuine, authentic, ideologically committed and serious people. The typical Der Movement approach of accepting any and all Whites who can fog a mirror held up to their nose and who can mumble memorized gibbering of fossilized “movement” dogma is a recipe for failure. Particularly, accepting any and all “youth,” including and especially troubled teenagers and young adults, people who are so pathetically eager for acceptance and belonging, people whose ONLY positive characteristic is being White and ostensibly on board “the movement train,” without any other positives to contribute, this is an error.  There needs to be a long apprenticeship, a seasoning, a series of trials and tests, before a person is fully accepted.

Well, well, well – the Millennial Woes scandal. Sallis right, Johnson wrong. Sallis is Milady-skeptic, Sallis promotes MGTOW, Sallis questions the presence of women in the “movement,” Sallis demands we have standards for leadership instead of affirmative action, Sallis opposes the “big tent approach.”  Johnson takes the opposite view on those issues.


I have to say I know little about this Millennial Woes person.  My understanding is – and if I am wrong I stand corrected and I do apologize – is that he is a cigarette-smoking bisexual Millennial Scottish WN 2.0 Alt Righter who makes videos and speaks at Far Right conferences. He apparently is on good relations with Johnson, and is apparently very well known among WN 2.0 Alt Right circles (which is why I know little about him, given that I am vehemently opposed to WN 2.0 and the Alt Right).

In any case, in summary, this latest “movement” humiliation and Quota Queen dust-up involves the Millennial Woes (who is openly known as Colin Robertson) scandal, which apparently has to do with some yeastbucket complaining about Robertson, re: something sexual, and Collett investigating while Robertson steps away from activism (at least for now). Apparently, Gaslighting Greg Johnson is taking a pro-Woes position while crazed ethnofetishist Colin Liddell is hostile.  Apparently the two Colins have had a falling out.  


Far from it for me to be a “low information moralizer;” so since I know nothing more about this than what is stated above, and since I don’t have a dog in the fight to care enough to learn more, I’ll limit my comments to broad generalities:


1. I could say this is what happens when you let women involved in “movement” “activism.”  But that would be unfair since (a) homosexual sexual harassment occurs in WN 2.0 as revealed by Pilleater, and (b) point 2 below.


2. I remember the WN 1.0 analog meetings we knuckle-dragging Nutzi Neanderthal Boomers and Gen Xers were having back in the 90s. There were women at those meetings.  Somehow, there were never any scandals of either the heterosexual or homosexual nature.  Fancy that.  It’s almost as if – perish the thought! – WN 2.0 is far inferior to WN 1.0 in human material and in the seriousness and judgment of its participants.  It’s almost as if – gasp! – Millennials and other paragons of “youth” act like jackasses.  


3. This is hypocrisy.  See this for what I mean by that.  Simply outrageous, particularly in the context of the previous links. A completely bizarre and cringeworthy tweet. Milady objects. Go to CC meetings at your own risk as well, Pilleater.


4. Once again, Der Movement is humiliated.  And you can’t say you haven’t been warned here at this blog (and at Western Destiny) of what an utter disaster the “movement” was, is, and always will be.  Now, WN 1.0 was indeed an utter failure and a humiliating disaster, but WN 2.0 is infinitely worse, essentially 2.0 repeats the errors of 1.0 and then adds its own layers of tragicomic stupidity. It may very well be true that Millennial Woes did nothing wrong; it may very well be mendacious yeastbucketism. It doesn’t matter. Having these WN 2.0ers publicly humiliate themselves with their drama and scandals and feuds does damage to pro-White activism, regardless of the details underlying it all.


Johnsonian hypocrisy:

Embittered people like Colin Liddell are now functionally indistinguishable from antifa. 

I despise Liddell, but that from Johnson is unfair and hypocritical.  After all, Spencer can say the same about Johnson and his obsessive critiques of Richie Rich.  Why is it that people like Johnson, who promote the idea of “punching right,” have glass jaws when it comes to criticism of themselves and their friends?  Liddell has just as much right (no pun intended) to “punch right” as does Johnson. Third party observers can judge for themselves who they believe is correct or incorrect.


All of these individuals – Johnson, Spencer, Colin Robertson, Colin Liddell, Steadman, Parrott and Heimbach, Brimelow and Derbyshire, Forney and Friberg, all of the HBDers and “race realists” (Taylor, KMacD, etc.),  Anglin and Roissy, Duke and Strom, the great man on the mountaintop (*) and his feuding rival Covington, Gliebe and the swastika-soled boots, all of them – should be observed with bemusement, from a distance, from the viewpoint of a third party observer. Taking sides in these feuds and scandals is a useless exercise, because BOTH sides in each case are no damn good. A pox on both their houses. The only reasonable interpretation of this latest nonsense is that it is yet another reason to eschew Der Movement, Inc. and look toward a New Movement.  


Instead of giving those grifters money, donate to Salter instead.  On Genetic Interests alone is more valuable than all the “work” of those aforementioned “activists” put together.  


*I will say this though, for all my criticism of Pierce and his behavior and ideology, it is true that American White nationalism collapsed after his death and never recovered.  And it appears the UK is not any better.  Was the death of Pierce the real end – or at least the beginning of the end – of the WN 1.0 era?  Then there was a brief interregnum, and the rise of Spencer and Johnson (more feuding rivals) marked the rise of WN 2.0.  


Original hypothesis – given the level of neoteny in East Asians, “White male yellow fever” sexual interest in East Asian females is sublimated pedophilia.


New insight – given the relative lack of sexual dimorphism in East Asians, “White male yellow fever” sexual interest in East Asian females is sublimated homosexuality.


New synthesis, updated hypothesis – given the combination of neoteny and relative lack of sexual dimorphism in East Asians, “White male yellow fever” sexual interest in East Asian females is sublimated pederasty. 


Is “yellow fever” masking a desire to have sex with underage boys?  Does this mean that HBD is sublimated pederasty?  Are there psychological and biometric analyses that can be performed to test these hypotheses?


Typical nonsense. The best science fiction writer (by far) is the late Gene Wolfe. Nothing that anyone else has written surpasses The Book of the New Sun. That book series is the scifi/fantasy equivalent of Moby Dick. And in actuality, Bradbury’s best work is a non-scifi novel, Dandelion Wine, about an America long gone. Dune (which I have read, and saw the movie and miniseries), is a very good book, but nothing compared to Wolfe’s best. van Vogt’s Voyage of the Space Beagle is good stuff. For more light-hearted fare, Jack Vance is unsurpassed; beginners should start with his Dying Earth short tales, which have been criticized by feminists as too male-oriented, which should be the best seal of approval there is. Vance’s novels involving Cugel (one of the greatest characters in scifi/fantasy history) are first rate and hilarious, and Planet of Adventure is excellent, as are his Demon Princes stories, particularly the finale, The Book of Dreams. Asimov is over-rated, but his Foundation series is indeed excellent, and thought-provoking from a broad civilizational view. There are many other great scifi books and writers. Conflating the best to Herbert and Bradbury is absurd.

This picture does not inspire confidence in current coronavirus research.

I agree with what Johnson says here.

The American Right has morally and intellectually discredited itself with its reaction to the corona pandemic.

Very true, but as any reader of EGI Notes well knows, you read that here first, many weeks before Johnson’s belated epiphany.  The few times the Quota Queens write or say anything useful, there are far behind the curve of this blog.


And of course, by letting deranged scum like “Stronza” post comments on his moderated blog, Johnson himself must be counted among the rightists who have been so discredited.


It’s just the flu, bro!

The biography of Jack Ma?  ET phone home!

Not good enough, Trump. Please release the data.  I believe it, but how can we all build treason evidence against HBD without the stone cold facts?  Keep in mind that EGI Notes was among the first Far Right blogs promoting the “Chinese lab release” paradigm (while the HBD filth were promoting Chinese government propaganda lies about a fictional “American bioweapon.”


A better title – can you trust Der Movement?

I have a distinct dislike for the journalistic class as a whole. They do not so much report news as collectively make the news, according to a peculiar pack mentality, which combines commonly-agreed designated good guys and bad guys, but also sometimes brutal and erratic shifts collective opinion, not according to the whims of an official chief, but a strange and disturbing hive mind.

A better version:

I have a distinct dislike for Der Movement as a whole. It does not so much report the truth about race as collectively distort the truth, according to a peculiar Nordicist and/or HBD pack mentality, which combines commonly-agreed designated good ethnies and bad ethnies, but also sometimes brutal and erratic shifts collective opinion, not according to the whims of an official chief, but a strange and disturbing hive mind.

PCA, Sea Turtles, Vance and Wolfe

In der news.

Some of the points made here are supported by the West Eurasian PCA here.  In particular, I refer to the relative closeness of Ashkenazi Jews to some Southern European groups being due to not only the Southern European admixture in the Ashkenazi genepool but also the Ashkenazim’s Eastern European admixture, which “pulls” those Jews closer to Europeans than where they would have been were they simply a Middle Eastern-Southern European mix.

Most of the non-Ashkenazi Jews pictured in the PCA are closer to non-Jewish Middle Eastern populations than are the Ashkenazim, since those other Jewish types not only derive a fraction of their ancestry from those other (non-European) host peoples but they lack that minority portion of Eastern European admixture that “pulls”  the Ashkenazim in the direction of the upper left. Turkish Jews are relatively close to the Ashkenazim but “pulled” a bit more toward the upper right, where Turks are. Note the upper right location of the Iranian samples, away from any Europeans, a fact for those who believe there is little difference between Iranians and Europeans.

Vicious Chinatrix stomps on sea turtle nest.  Colored is as colored does.  If a Negro did this, the HBDers would be hyperventilating over “low IQ violent African behavior,” but if a Holy Oriental – and a female to boot – does it, move on, move on, there’s nothing to see here.

The Jack Vance channel. Scifi/fantasy for Type IIs.  As is the work of Gene Wolfe.  Type Is can keep their Tolkien. But this Type I has a different opinion.

Gene Wolfe is Dead and Other News

In der news.

Gene Wolfe is dead.  Also see this. 

Another Jack Vance phrase to describe female behavior – “erotic provocations.”  A female Vance character describing the behavior of her sister toward a male character – “…beguiling and provoking, teasing and tormenting.” One can look for clues in Vance’s background for his accurate portrayal of the female “contribution” to societal stability.

Vance and Wolfe are authors suitable for Type IIs. Tolkien, in contrast, is a Type I-style author.

Both Wolfe and Vance should be of interest to a “movement” allegedly interested in Faye’s “Archaeo-Futurism.” Men’s rights advocates and others on the Right can find much richness and nuance in the work of Wolfe and Vance.

Wolfe made a good point about cowardice vs. bravery.  According to Wolfe, the only real difference is that the coward fears the event before it happens, while the brave man feels fear after. So, the coward spends time dreading and obsessing about, say, combat, and becomes so fearful in advance that he shirks his responsibility when the time comes, while the brave man just acts without thinking about it, and, if he survives, becomes fearful about what he did after. Wolfe was a Korean War veteran, so he knew a thing or two about this subject.

A comment for Durocher from his own thread, emphasis added:

“Individual and ethnic amour-propre is a powerful motivator in the face of emotionally hurtful facts and hypotheses”

That was you and an Uraloid Anon Finn who don’t understand or lie about the ancient DNA. It’s also telling that you only respond with “interesting comment” to comments that stroke your ego. As if other facts are emotionally hurtful. That’s the problem people have with white nationalist liars like you and your cohort, not the actual science which has already destroyed many of your myths incidentally.

Btw, so others can check the dishonesty at play here:

“Western hunter gatherer natives that had a brain volume 1600 ccc , yamnaya or aryan around 1450ccc and anatolian farmers around 1300ccc”

Let’s accept those numbers. This means that the difference between WHG and Yamnaya was the same as between Yamnaya and Anatolian farmers. But guess which two populations contributed the most ancestry to all modern Europeans? But I suppose the Yamnayans didn’t “damagin permanently our genepool (sic)”.

And of course, our Uraloid supremacist has to come up with more ad-hoc reasoning to explain the Lithuanians, close to the biggest hunter-gatherer ancestry in Europe, or the Ukrainians: “If you exclude the slavs that were subjected to a different civilizational process”

Ah but the “elven Finns” weren’t subject to different civilizational process, they are “Fennoscandians” after all. It’s as if you arrive at the exact conclusion you already had in mind via a roundabout process innit? Even though Balts and Slavs have the most hunter-gatherer on average, they were subject to a “different civilizational process”. Meanwhile Western Europeans who have more Anatolian and less steppe and WHG on average got their civilizational prowess via some other ad-hoc process we’ll come up with on the spot. Maybe it’s “outbreeding” or one of the thousand ad-hoc explanations the HBDsphere has come up with huh?

Ron Unz:  Read this.

Roissy gets it right for once:

Ron Unz lies a lot in an article about the Alt-Right which he penned last year but reposted yesterday. I think the strawman-per-word ratio in his id-shaped rant is higher than anything I’ve read outside of a feminist tumblrrhea screed.

His main contention is that the “alt-right” are being deplatformed and de-personed because representatives (whoever they are) exaggerate the criminal threat of latino immigration, and the Soylicunt Valley nerdos who have been thrust into the role of Speech Police can’t tolerate the lies.

This is an utter inversion of the reality, which is that the Big Tech Poindexters can’t tolerate the truths which dissident outposts daily level against the corrupt Globohomo worldview and nation-dissolving agenda.

Never forget the “White nationalists” who are sell-outs to Unz, betraying their race for thirty pieces of silver.  We should be talking more about the Clueless Judas rather than the Yang Gang.

He doesn’t understand why Trump’s government persecutes militias guarding the border. Answer – Trump is a radical Far-Left SJW, seething with raw hatred toward White America.

Alt Right priapisms arise:

Chinese Nationalist Maiden
The problem for the West is that the USA might sooner or later be at war with the world’s prime Communist superpower, Red China. The West cannot afford to lose that war if it ever comes to pass, and neither can the West afford to lose the war over the control of the Western borders. Immigration needs to be brought back under the control of sound racial-demographic policy, and potential rivals such as Red China should not be made more powerful by Western companies..

That’s great.  Where do YOU live?  If it is in a Western country, please leave.  Or else you’re nothing but a vile hypocrite.

In Trump We Trust!  E Pluribus Awesome!

The testers:

…the DTC genetic testing company FamilyTreeDNA reached an agreement with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to grant the agency access to FamilyTreeDNA’s database of more than 1 million genetic records. At present, DTC genetic testing companies 23andMe and Ancestry still require court orders or valid search warrants for unsolicited third-party or law enforcement access to their genetic data records.

Listen to this.  I give Spencer credit for reaching out to the police and for considering legal action about that TV show clip.

The overall video had a good message, but there is a fundamental flaw there.  Unlike the White fear of Black mass violence, no one is really frightened of White nationalists, or any type of Whites whatsoever.  All the recent nonsense, the congressional hearing, the media stories, the statements – that’s all an excuse for censorship. They fear WN ideas (such as they are – that shows how memetically weak the Left really is), but not WNs themselves.  There is no real credible threat, outside of lone wolves and that’s nothing in the broader scheme of things.  The fear of the 1960s was of mass Black insurrection, riots and so forth. The only things White men today would riot for is more access to East Asian women and more Negro football on TV.

Yes, well, look Fat Don, since you’ve completely abandoned your White working class base, can you be surprised that others are targeting them?  Beware the Yang Gang!

The anti-vaxxers claim that the decrease in measles from, say, the 50’s to the 80s, was due to “better hygiene” and had nothing to do with vaccination.  What happened?  Did we start wallowing in filth?  Interesting, isn’t it, that – a coincidence, no doubt! – the spike in measles has occurred concomitant with the retards not vaccinating their children.

Sallis right again!  See title here.  See reality here.

Der Movement marches on:

I have for some time believed that it was Aryans who founded the Egyptian civilization after migrating from the Hyperborean center, due to the spirituality seeming to be quite Aryan. This also with the combination of some Pharaohs being depicted as blond-haired and blue-eyed and after opening tombs, they found that a Pharaoh even had red hair if I recall correctly. The question is: Is ancient Egyptian spirituality of an Aryan character, and if so, how could that be, if the Egyptians were of a non-Aryan stock?

Anyone who thinks that the findings of genetic archaeology will end “movement” fetishism is deluded.  When you are dealing with blind religious faith, facts are irrelevant.  If a careful genetic study proved without a shadow of a doubt that the Spartans were Nigerian, the Nutzis would crow; “Arthur Kemp was right!”

Swallow Your Blackpill, 1/23/19

Let’s consider reality.

Watch this.

I haven’t said anything so far about the Covington Catholic School incident, but let me say this. This incident, coming so soon after the James Watson and Steve King fiascos, demonstrate very clearly that Whites are a pathetic, powerless, subaltern caste who are hated and despised by the entire System, and who have defenders, no supporters, no leaders.  Decade after decade the “movement” has preened and pontificated, churned through millions of dollars and through the lives of its supporters, and more recently championed the Presidency of a vulgar fraud (When is that Covington invite to the White House coming Donny?  Will you invite some of your Antifa friends there as well, to punch these innocent children?  Maybe little Jeff would like to do it?). The end result: Whites are more of a disenfranchised, humiliated, oppressed population now than ever before.  And the outrageously incompetent leaders have the nerve – shall we say the chutzpah – to debate among themselves “when our victory will be achieved.”  Are they really that delusional, or are they merely protecting their reputations and their cash flows?

And why don’t the Covington boys get a nice lawyer and sue all those celebrities openly calling for attacks on children, and sue Twitter for allowing it (and for maintaining all those “blue check marks”), while others are deplatformed simply for expressing legitimate political opinions?

Aren’t there any lawyers willing to take the case?  Or is that – the lack thereof – another indication of the “untouchable” status of Whites in American today? 

Hey, Greg, here’s some female “agency” for you.

And some more.

Daniels is the archetypal J Richards poster girl – blonde, man-jawed, big-boned, and floppy-breasted.  And of course, if you disagreed with Richards’ standards of female beauty, then you were “insane.”  That was during the rapid decline phase of Majority Rights, a phase that Counter-Currents is currently enjoying.

In any case, to me, Daniels has all the sex appeal of warmed-over roadkill, but Trump apparently was favorably impressed at one point in time.  There’s no accounting for taste, I suppose.

I was annoyed recently reading about crazed feminists accusing Gene Wolfe (of all people!) of being a “misogynist” who is “insensitive” to yeastbucket feelings because his female characters are “not well formed” and some of his male characters (Severian I suppose) sometimes treat milady with less than beta obsequious behavior.  This is the same Gene Wolfe who was devoted to his wife and who converted to Catholicism – becoming a devout practitioner of that religion – for his wife’s sake.  That’s the same Gene Wolfe whose books are actually full of interesting female characters.  But you can’t please SJW scum.  I also remember some retards accusing Wolfe of “anti-Asian racism” because they stupidly thought that the robot-like “Ascians” were “Asians,” while they clearly are the population of a far-future America. In The Book of the New Sun, the “Xanthic lands” are where Asia is or was – The Commonwealth is in South America; Ascia is in North America.  But I assume the SJWs would find the word “Xanthic” offensive as well.  After all, we can call Europeans “White” but we cannot call East Asians “Yellow.”

Talking about Wolfe always reminds me of my other favorite sci-fi writer, Jack Vance, whose healthy attitudes towards milady were described here, and also described here.

In addition, a young and attractive woman in Cugel’s Saga is described thus:

…gifted with a buxom chest and robust little haunches while still retaining a slender and flexible waist…

Cugel is “worse” than his literary “descendant” Severian in how he treats milady.  Although sometimes Cugel is insulted, tricked, and mistreated by cunning females, he also often gets back at them very well, including incidents of forced sex, which in The Eyes of the Overworld is given the euphemism “couching.”

I am of course not in any way condoning or supporting the behavior so depicted – of course the attitude of men toward women must be that of beta orbiter groveling, lickspittle admiration, and the idea that every slutty landwhale reeking of festering yeast is a potential Joan of Arc leading us to deliverance.  But, still, Vance is amusing, no?

And in contrast to “The Ring” and other Tolkien crap, Vance presents to us the “Pectoral Sky-break Spatterlight” that I definitely greatly prefer.  The former is a Type I literary artifact; the latter, Type II.

One less for Derbyshire.
