Greg Johnson arrested in Norway, re: the Scandza conference. Despite my differences with Greg Johnson, obviously I oppose this and denounce it in the strongest terms possible. I do not want my ideological opponents silenced and censored; instead I want to engage them (something Johnson should consider with respect to his “banning” of people from his blog – what goes around comes around, I suppose).
The optimal thing from my perspective would be for Johnson to speak and for the transcript of the talk to be published at Counter-Currents, after which I can perform a thorough fisking of it. One hopes that Johnson will publish the text of what he was going to say when he gets back. Since the conference was, I believe, promoting the anti-White, pro-Jewish, treasonous, yellow supremacist HBD cult, no doubt there would be plenty to criticize. Again, even though I consider the conference to have been a genocidal attack against White interests, we should respect free speech and let the yellow supremacists speak. Let them expose themselves, after which they can be criticized.
Thus, the action of the Norwegian authorities is despicable, and EGI Notes supports, 100%, Johnson’s right to attend and speak at Scandza, despite that I expect I would disagree with what he would say. But that’s what free speech is all about, and if EGI Notes supports free speech, it has to be for everyone…even Johnson.
Perhaps at this point Johnson will realize that I (and Hood) are correct and that metapolitics without politics is a dead end. Let us assume for the moment (and I know that this is a stretch) that Johnson’s speech would have been unvarnished truth, something of the highest utility. It doesn’t matter. The System in Norway has the monopoly of force and there is no one there, no real opposition with any political power whatsoever, who is able to effectively intervene on his behalf.
Metapolitics and politics must be synergistic. You have to have both. The metapolitics assists in the success in the political realm, and success in the political realm creates the environment in which metapolitical work can be more effective. The cycle has to begin at some point however, and gibbering about Yogi Bear and the Men Who Can’t Tell Time is not the way to do it.
What would be a better way?
At the moment, we are therefore looking at the possibility of taking legal action against Filter Nyheter.
Actually, that is something I would actually support all you guys giving “D’Nations” for – the only thing in fact. That is at least practical political action, politics in its broadest sense as activity in relation to power. Filter Nyheter engaged in politics in getting Johnson barred from the conference, arrested, and presumably deported. Johnson should therefore engage in politics in taking action against Filter Nyheter. That’s politics. If Filter Nyheter merely criticized Johnson’s views, and, for example, challenged him to a debate, that would be metapolitics; on the other hand, utilizing the power of the state to silence Johnson is politics. A response of legal action would also be politics. Truth and facts are insufficient if the other side is willing, and able, to use force to silence that truth and censor those facts.
Scandza triple vets its attendees…
1. Are you Nordic?
2. Are you Swedish?
3. Are you Northwest European?
Extra bonus question: Can you fog a mirror held up to your nose?
Seriously though, something is wrong there. The “triple vetting” is a failure or you got a mole or Antifa is so entrenched in society that they have the venue or other third party actors tipping them off. The first two probabilities are more likely.
…to ensure that the venue is kept confidential but both in Copenhagen and in Oslo, the word appears to have got out.
As I have recently written, there is a time-honored method for identifying leaks. It’s no secret. There’s a Wikipedia page on the method. I’m sure all you big-brained societal consensus guys can figure it out. Unless some of those guys themselves are also infiltrators – how high up is the rot? Start reading or watching (the miniseries not the move) Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy. Either the “triple vetting” is majestically flawed or you got a mole, guys. Or both.
SINCERITY.netI did not feel safe to enter the Copenhagen Scandza meeting. I could have gotten a police escort to get in. I was, though, concerned about how to get back out of the conference, and about being recognized, photographed, and targeted. Antifa is known to beat up people on their way back home, on railway stations etc. I lost time and expenses of a 3 day trip to Copenhagen, plus conference fees, without joining. I can imagine that Oslo could become worse.It is shocking that Antifa is organized enough to get their spies among the highly vetted people and arrive in force before the actually invited people can make it. In spite of precautions like secret service spy meeting, with several intermediate stops and last moment further email messages.If there are reports and videos out from last meeting, please send me the info here. We are also mirroring Colin Flaherty videos to vk DOT com/colinflaherty and to bitchute. We hope Scandza also will not put all their stakes into youtube.
Note: “It is shocking that Antifa is organized enough to get their spies among the highly vetted people and arrive in force before the actually invited people can make it.”
Note how the Left infiltrates the Far Right with ease…the “extreme triple vetting” means nothing – it is as if there is no vetting at all. This tells me that A) the vetting is flawed (from the analog and/or digital perspective) and/or B) the infiltration goes way up the ladder, perhaps including people doing the vetting and organizing. There are leaks somewhere, there is an error in the operational security somewhere. I would suggest that dealing with this is the first priority. Also note that the Right is not only helpless in preventing its own infiltration, but is helpless when it comes to infiltrating the Left (a seeming impossibility for the Right to achieve). Further note that Frodi’s assurances that the Copenhagen fiasco was a special case because a Danish political figure was invited, and that we should not assume Antifa would show the same interest elsewhere, seems to be, not surprisingly, completely wrong.
Accountability? Or are we so used to these guys being wrong all the time – always, always wrong, about virtually everything – that we just give it a pass?
