The Invented Italian

Philip Jose Farmer, another ethnic fetishist.

I’ve started re-reading the Riverworld science fiction series by Philip Jose Farmer, whose background is described here.  As regards plot and writing, it’s fairly good, but from a racialist perspective, it is not good at all.

I’m mostly through book one, but have extensively flipped through the other volumes, especially book two, to get a feel for the extent Farmer’s racial perspective filter though the series. Farmer was, perhaps not surprisingly, an extreme racial liberal, vehemently pro-Jewish and anti-Nazi, as well as sympathetic to Blacks and to the “civil rights” struggle.  And, oh yes, Black male-White female miscegenation is A-OK; accepting that is a sign of progressive mental advancement, don’t you know.

It is perhaps also not surprising that there is one ethnic group that fairs quite poorly (at least so far) in Farmer’s SJW storytelling: Italians.  Surprise!  With Farmer’s background and his extreme SJW anti-racist cuckiness, I’m shocked – shocked I say! – that he expresses the typical disdain of his type for White ethnics.

This, Italians – particularly Italian males – are portrayed by Farmer as brown-skinned, beak-nosed, no-chinned skulking low-character flotsam and jetsam, negatively contrasted to, say, sturdy Israeli heroes or proud, sticking-it-to-Whitey Negroes.  And, by the way, the Italians so described are northern Italians, not even southerners. 

Farmer represents a very real mix of character traits and opinions that is not so very rare – and not rare at all in Der Movement.

Maybe there really is something to this “high trust hunter-gatherer” paradigm after all.

We can consider Farmer’s ethnic depictions to be akin to what we get from pop culture, particularly from a heavily Jewish and Leftist Hollywood, with TV shows and movies that often use non-White actors and actresses (or real-life individuals adopted into Italian families) to play ethnically Italian characters (Saving Private Ryan, The Wedding Planner, A Bronx Tale, Ugly Betty, Cheers, Jersey Shore…the list goes on).  Of course, for perpetuating certain Italian racial stereotypes, we also have Der Movement’s favorite movie, True Romance.  

We can call this phenomenon: The Invented Italian. People with an ethnic axe to grind invent an image of Italians for public consumption that is at best misleading and at worst intentionally mendacious and racially destructive.  The Invented Italian: a cringing, brown-skinned, non-European, non-White, Arabo-Latino-Mulatto-Afrowop.  If Jesse Jackson and Rudy Giuliani were cast by Hollywood – a la Saving Private Ryan – Jackson would be cast to play an Italian, and Giuliani cast as some non-Italian White character.  After all, Spielberg specifically chose mixed-race Vin Diesel (he of ambiguous but “colored” paternal parentage) to play a wop after seeing him in the semi-autobiographical Multifacial, concerning the struggles of a multiracial actor.  Remind me again what character Dennis Farina played in that movie…oh, that’s right, surname Anderson.  Amazing. Or, more simply: Jewmazing.

Now, I can imagine some arguing: “hey, there really are genuine Italians who are very dark-complexioned, who look strange, etc.”  These people may cite certain celebrities or people they personally know, or whatever.  While that statement is technically true, it is also true that there are outlier phenotypes in every ethnic group and it is usually not the practice to substitute outliers for the norm.  When extreme outliers are misrepresented as the norm, intentionally reinforced by using members of other, racially alien, groups to represent the false norm in question, then we have a case of an “invented” ethny.  Ethnies should be judged – for better or worse – on their actual reality, not judged based on bizarre Hollywood casting choices or effete cuck sci/fi writers’ stylistic descriptions.

As to why this occurs – that can be an analysis for another day.  Suffice to say when it applies to Jewish/Leftist Hollywood, they probably have an agenda – conscious or subconscious – to divide Whites against each other by utilizing misleading characterizations of certain European ethnies so as to exaggerate distinctiveness and abrogate racial solidarity among European-Americans.

A reasonable assumption is that the Etruscan art portrayals reflected how they actually looked (similar to the ancient Greeks, whose portrayals were similar).  While Type I activists may look at the fresco and see Dolph Lundgren, I see swart, dark-eyed individuals with black curly hair, if anything darker than the average modern Italian.  And yet, Der Movement tells us the original pre-Roman population of Italy were akin to modern Swedes, subsequently darkened by the “racial morass” of Rome.  Sure they were.  Hope the eye doctor visit turns out well.

Der Stupidity, 12/9/17

More “movement” antics.

Richard Spencer (laughably) asserts that an obvious non-White mongrel like Markle can “pass for White or Italian” (those two categories being, obviously, separate and distinct).  The resident wop on the podcast, along with Spencer, ended up making a joke out of it all (one could almost hear Beavis and Butthead sniggering in the background), and the podcast went on, the small faux paus of ethnic fetishism gently skipped over with a chuckle, akin to adults smiling when a toddler innocently passes gas in public.

Very well, everyone is entitled to their opinions on racial phenotypes, just as they are entitled to the glasses or corrective eye surgery that they so sorely require.  The irony though is that while these fellows decry that the “conversation moves in only one direction” – focusing on the hypocrisy between royal mores of the 1930s compared to today – they themselves exhibit the same tendencies to follow rigid trains of thought. How about moving the conversation about racial phenotypes in other directions?  If accusations of “ethnic fetishism” are thought to be unfair, then when are we going to hear Der Movement discuss how David Bromstad looks more Asian than Yukio Mishima, or how Bjork can pass as a Japanese Geisha?  Blasphemy!  Blasphemy!  Time to vandalize the Bromstad Wikipedia page with new lies about a “Chinese mother,” no doubt.

Critiquing Der Movement once again, I note the absence so far (apart from this blog) of commentary about Donald “Saturated Fats” Trump, the vacuum cleaner scarfing up piles of junk food like any typical obese American land whale, and his slavishly pro-Jewish Jerusalem ploy.  America First?  Laughable.  But all the “movement” heroes no doubt don’t want to dwell too much on this, as it would focus unwanted attention on their unrequited Trump lovefest, and their incurable “man on white horse syndrome.”  

Der Movement: 10/13/17

Der Movement roundup.

Fascinating how Der Movement is obsessed with Evola (I’m unimpressed with his work myself; as a scientific empiricist, I find Evola’s  writings the worst form of subjective gibbering nonsense), yet are, in general, filled with a loathing and contemptuous disdain for the people from whence Evola sprang.  It’s ironic, as I suspect that Evola’s “spiritual race” stupidity was a sort of “memetic allergic response” to those sorts of attitudes.

Buchanan is more right than he knows.  Man on white horse syndrome, style over substance, betrayal, talk of amnesty – a heir indeed!

It seems unlikely that Marantz will offer either a retraction or offer sufficiently credible supporting evidence for his assertion.  Further, as I have previously asserted, anyone who uses the term “White supremacist” to describe White nationalists is being intellectually dishonest. MacDonald is not the only one who has a potential justification for a libel suit – Enoch has as well, if he can demonstrate that his views are nationalist and not supremacist.

I also find Marantz’s reply to MacDonald fascinating. When leftists contact Far Right leaders, digging around for more information for future “hit pieces,” it’s almost as if they are writing off of the same script; they all sound exactly the same: cheerful insouciance, bright-eyed innocence, insults couched in ostensibly friendly language, and, always, “I really want to know you better, I’m so very much genuinely interested in hearing your side.”  Emphasis added:

Hi Prof. MacDonald, as you’ll see in the piece, I bought your book and have read much of it, and I don’t think I characterized it unfairly. I have also read your many replies to your critics, here (http://www.kevinmacdonald.net/tooby&pinker.htm …) and elsewhere, and I understand your rejoinders (that Pinker never finished the book, that Tooby takes too narrow a view of genetic variation and adaptation, etc.)—and yet I don’t think it’s unfair to say that CofC was roundly debunked by mainstream social scientists. First, I think it’s fair to say that Pinker debunked the book even though he didn’t finish reading it. Whether it’s fair to debunk a set of arguments without engaging with them fully is another matter, but it is what he did, as did many others, not limited to Tooby. Of course, as you know, on your site you tend to emphasize the positive reviews of your book (by Derbyshire, Gottfried, etc.) but there are, of course, many negative ones as well, many of which are by mainstream social scientists (Jefferson Singer, John Hartung, etc). Again, not all of these took the form of published papers, but they were “debunkings” nonetheless. Your work is obviously influential in certain circles, and I would love to talk to you about it sometime—I am genuinely interested in it, and I think you’d find me a fair interview—but it’s just a fact that the mainstream has largely rejected your arguments. Moreover, it’s a fact I’ve seen you acknowledge (and complain about) fairly often…

In any case, MacDonald’s work on the Jews has NOT been “debunked.”  It has merely been criticized.  Whether or not you agree or disagree with that criticism (I disagree) is one thing, it’s another to falsely claim that this criticism has been so definitive (and unanswerable) so as to constitute “debunking.”  This all shows what a sorry state media writing has fallen to – it’s all political propaganda, without substantive, objectively useful, content.

Of Declines and Falls

Not always an alien influx followed by racial admixture.

One of Der Movement’s favorite memes is the idea that national decline and the fall of civilizations always have an external racial basis – i.e., the decline and fall occurs as a result of some sort of alien influx followed by “racial admixture.”

A look at history provides many counter-examples.  Consider the Italian Renaissance, centered on North-Central Italy, particularly Tuscany-Florence. The great intellectual ferment there changes the world and then essentially vanished, all without the influx/admixture model being relevant.  What happened to the great Italian artists like Michelangelo and the all-around figures like Alberti and da Vinci?  Where are the great German composers today?  After Nietzsche and Heidegger, what happened to German philosophy?  What happened to French culture and French martial glory? Where’s the English Dickens and Shakespeare today?  Isn’t it true that the Third World influx into Great Britain occurred after, not before, they lost their empire?  Spain lost their empire, but that empire was formed after they had thrown off centuries of Arabic rule; it wasn’t that the “Arab influx” was responsible for Spain’s fall.  Does anyone really believe Portugal lost their empire because of “an influx of Negro blood?”  Was it really possible for a small nation like Portugal could maintain their lead in exploration and colonization after larger European nations got involved?  Did “racial admixture” lose the Netherlands most of their overseas possessions?  Did the transformation of Scandinavians from Vikings to SJW social democrats involve “racial admixture” or did the alien invasion of that part of Europe occur after the behavioral and cultural changes?

In these cases, to the extent the problem was biological, it was internal – dysgenics including the counter-selective effects of war, Frost’s genetic pacification, and the breeding of the unfit and the botched – as well as cultural/historical (Spengler?).  In many cases, alien influx and admixture, when it has occurred, was the consequence, not the cause, of decline. One can speculate that the Ancient World was similar.  In some cases of course, admixture may have caused decline (Ancient Egypt?  The Middle East?) but that’s as much the exception as it is the rule.

But Der Movement can’t get is head around such ideas, just as their heavy breathing about Paleolithic/Neolithic differences in Europe typically doesn’t understand that such differences were in place long before the beginnings of the Ancient World’s Classical Civilizations.

I would invoke “cognitive dissonance” here, but that implies some sort of cognitive process to begin with.


A note:


It’s a bit humorous that the same Alt Right that has disdain for S. Italians also has an obsessive man-crush on Julius Evola who is described thus:

Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born in Rome to a minor aristocratic family of Sicilian origins.


Again, I could say “cognitive dissonance” but that implies some degree of cognitive function, and I’m not sure how much of that Der Movement actually has.

Trump, Russia, and the Virginia Protest

The usual stupidities.

The whole fabricated (I think) Russia scandal is yet more evidence of Trump’s omega male ineptness.  Assuming for a moment that there is no real “meat” behind this “scandal” then how did it come into existence?  There are two threads here, overlapping and synergizing with each other.  First, after they got over the shock of the election, the Left/System started fishing around for an explanation that could comfortably exclude the possibility that working-class/middle-class White Americans have interests that have been ignored or attacked.  So, they fixated on the easy explanation – it was dem dere nasty Russkis!  Second, Putin and Russia have long been bogey-men to a whole set of vested interests: Jews, old Cold War warriors, Neocons of all ethnic origins, anti-White leftists who see the multiculturalist Putin as an implicitly White leader of an authoritarian “White” nation, and Asian imperialists who covet Russia’s Far East. So there was a great deal of pressure in formulating a narrative of Russian interference being directly responsible for electing Trump with the collusion of the Trump campaign.

Now, if Trump was really a competent “alpha male” and if he had competent people on his staff, these accusations could have been – should have been – effectively refuted from the very beginning and then subsequently treated with dignified scorn if they had continued post-refutation.  Instead, the Trumpites floundered around helplessly, stammering half-assed justifications, letting Trump make a jackass of himself on Twitter, and letting the whole narrative grow like a wildfire while Trump obsessed over Schwarzenegger’s ratings on Celebrity Apprentice and concentrated on his Diet Cokes, double-sauced meat dishes, and two scoops of ice cream on his chocolate pie.

Someone needs to tell Perriello that he has no right lecturing Spencer about the Civil War- an event in American history during which Spencer’s paternal ancestors were in this country and Perriello’s paternal ancestors were not. So this half-dago should just shut his filthy mouth.

It was ironically a massive showing of Northern Yankees, Irishmen, and Italians with a few Southerners in attendance as well.

Lulz.

Spencer said the event had been planned back in March “over cocktails” and in explaining the chants in support of Russia added: “There is a common brotherhood that stretches from Portugal to Siberia, and includes North America. Even though we’re very different, we obviously have common ancestry and there’s that tie of blood.”

That’s right – and Siberia belongs to Russia, not to grasping diseased Orientals who pimp out their “women” to omega male White race traitors.

Der Testing in Der News, 5/11/17

Genes, genes, genes…

In the past, I was accused of taking DNAPrint too seriously; today, people in and out of the “movement” take today’s testing even more “too seriously.”

That’s laughable. 23andme is just as laughable.

And now for academic population genetics.

Lies!

More Medish lies!

See this.

And this.

No, no, a thousand times, no!

No matter how those greaseballs shuck and jive, we all know that this is a Negress, a 100% pure sub-Saharan African, racially perfectly akin to, say, a Nigerian.
