Race and Der Movement in the News, 8/4/16

A good book and the usual stupidities.

This is an interesting book. It is a compilation of famous National Socialist speeches, mostly by Hitler, Goebbels (including the “total war” speech), and Streicher, but with a few others present as well. Contrary to System propaganda, these individuals spoke rationally, made good points, and much of what they said then applies today as well.
Typical TOO stupidity, emphasis added:

Where I come from race trumped religion, so that the northwestern europeans formed a ‘race’ in the face of invasion by mediterraneans made up of jews and italians, and blacks. The presbyterians and the irish catholics (those who had been here for some time or didn’t settle from the urban pipeline coming through NYC or Newark) sometimes gathered together against the episcopalians, either unofficially or at times self-consciously (more outside Philadelphia). Some germans had been around and blended in with the anglocelts. 

The irish catholics weren’t consistent, though, and some made unholy alliances with italians (later and only where necessary) and with jews such as in Essex County, NJ

You would think the calender read 1916, not 2016.
Despite TOO imbecility, I do not believe this to be true; more “movement” paranoia. Sometimes you just need to chalk up destructiveness to stupidity rather than to malice.
Latest anti-Trump psychotic hysteria: articles on Yahoo about how Trump is “insane” (the authors mean that literally, not figuratively), as well as analyses of “what will the Republican party do if Trump dropped out” (which he has of course shown no indication of doing), as well as dire articles suggesting Trump followers will turn violent and riot if he loses (while the only violent riots we’ve seen so far have come from anti-Trump leftist protesters).

On National and Ethnic IQ

HBD stupidity,

Following up on my comments on this stupid post by Johnred Derbyfogle, a few brief comments on the alleged “89 average IQ” for Serbia.

First, any conclusions about national/ethic IQ should be based on data from actual IQ tests, not “estimated” from standardized test scores.  Second, IQ tests should be as g-loaded and culture-free as possible, findings should be reproducible, and based on broad testing of a good sample size drawn from a representative group of the relevant population. And you do NOT “estimate” IQ by averaging widely disparate scores from different tests given to widely divergent subsections of a population and then pretend that those “findings” are in any way relevant – you know, what Tricky Dick did to “estimate” Irish IQ.  That’s not science, that’s the sort of laughable stupidity a pimple-faced HBD blogger would come up with playing on his computer in mom’s basement.

Finally, scores need to be interpreted consistent with reality.  Forgive me for using anecdotal evidence here, but for me it is relevant.  I once knew a (White) person with a measured, verified IQ of 88.  Now, this person was stupid – not garden variety dumb, but truly, utterly, tragically moronic. This was an individual who was borderline functional, one step up from retarded, with no ability whatsoever to care for themselves in modern society – completely useless.  Now, Lynn et al. want us to believe that there are nations and provinces in Europe that have an average IQ (meaning approximately half the population is below that) in the range of the individual I have just described. Sorry, I don’t buy it: any society like that would be completely dysfunctional – and anyone who thinks there are majority-native areas of Europe that are indeed completely dysfunctional needs to get out more and actually visit the areas in question. It isn’t so. Relatively poorly run?  Yes.  Somewhat dysfunctional according to higher standards? Yes. Completely dysfunctional by the standards of a high-80s IQ?  No. And no amount of cherry picked pictures and “movement” dogmas can change that. And I won’t even discuss in detail that the standards of these ethnies as American citizens are so discordant with Lynnian data that one would have to propose extreme selective immigration for IQ (of at least 3/4 of a SD) to explain the discrepancies.  

Best Article So Far to Appear at Counter-Currents

Read it and then read it again.

In my opinion, this is the single best article ever to have appeared at Counter-Currents (including my own).

Many of the lessons outlined here apply not only to the armed phase of struggle, but also to the times we find ourselves in now. For example:

Saul Alinsky writes in Rules for Radicals that organizers must be masters of “political schizophrenia.” They must sincerely believe in what they are doing, if only to give them the strength of will to carry forward in difficult times. However, they should never become a “true believer” in the sense of fully internalizing their own propaganda. The point of politics is to achieve concrete ends, not simply to remain true to a dream. 

The Myth of nationalist (and racial) redemption is True in some platonic sense. That doesn’t mean it has to be a suicide pact. Revolutionaries have to be willing to die for the dream, but idealism does not exempt them from the laws of political reality.

The “movement” can learn from this, as it simultaneously manages to be both too serious/internalizing of its silly dogmas, but, on the other hand, completely non-serious when it comes to practical political work (in all its guises).

It’s unlikely that these Irish revolutionaries were measuring each other’s cephalic indices, or arguing whether they were men above time, beyond time, or unable to tell time. Putting aside the issue that de Valera was a half-Spanish hybrid.
Probably the most serious “movement” folks were the likes of Mathews, Scutari, Lane, etc. – but they misjudged by an order of magnitude their chances of success.

Salter on Greg Sheridan, 5/18/15

Exposing Sheridan’s anti-White genocidal hypocrisy.
Thus, Sheridan is fine with Western nations being destroyed by alien immigration, but, at the same time, he seems to praise and support demographic continuity in China, India, and Israel.  Is Sheridan a HBDer?
I’m not sure though that the Irish vs. Anglo conflict informs the general attitudes of Sheridan, since he seems to expand his genocidal ideas to Europe as a whole and not just the Anglosphere.  It would be interesting to ascertain Sheridan’s attitudes toward alien immigration to Ireland.
