Against the Twitter Purge

A brief statement of principle.

I’m going to postpone the post I had planned for today; instead, I want to make a statement about the ongoing Alt Right deplatforming, now manifested in a Twitter Purge of some on the Far-Right, including Taylor and Amren (as well as others, and one can expect the list to expand in coming days).

Readers of this blog know I have my differences with American Renaissance, and with some of the other “movement” precincts that have been, or will be, banned from social media.  That’s not relevant here.  Regardless of what I think of these individuals, organizations, and their work, I fully, and without reservation, support their rights of free speech, of free expression, and I unalterably oppose what has happened, what is happening.

Nitwits will of course start the song and dance that “Twitter is a private company, so they can do as they please here.”  Two points.  First, Twitter, Amazon, Google, PayPal and all the rest have become, basically, akin to public utilities and should be regulated as such. While I’m sure the SJWs think that Alt Righters should be deprived of electricity, heat, water, telephone service, medical care, etc. most reasonable people would disagree.  In the digital age of global communication and commerce, the aforementioned digital entities are analogous to analog service utilities and thus the issue should not merely be one of private preference.  Second, the hypocrisy here is breathless, in that bakers – private businesses! – are being forced to service homosexual marriages, and the same progressive have no problem with freedom of association being violated in that case (or in the case of race, for example – why can’t realtors or property owners discriminate based on race with respect who they sell to or rent to?).

I may also add that Twitter’s rationale that Amren promotes “violence” against “citizens” is ludicrous.  Taylor denounced Spencer merely for Hailgate – how do a bunch of suit-and-tie HBDers threaten “violence” to anyone?  All these Alt Right types are actually the victims of leftist violence, not the perpetrators of any sort of attacks.

The whole thing is a travesty.

But, this looks like the future.  Despite my disagreements with Der Movement, I oppose it being censored.  After all, from the broad perspective, I’m involved as well.  At times like this, all the “heroes” of the “movement” need to put aside their petty feuds and figure out approaches to bypass dependence upon a System that is opposed to all of us on the Far-Right.

The money and resources are available for this, as I’ve written many times, and apparently, KMacD agrees (emphasis added):

We have to hope that racially conscious Whites will eventually create an infrastructure that begins to match the multicultural, anti-White infrastructure that is already in place. The money is certainly there and the situation on the ground can only convince more and more Whites that Rep. Mo Brooks is right — that there is indeed a war against them.

More money for real projects and less money for “frilly things” for mudsharks and less money for happy penguins to live the good life, and maybe we’ll be getting somewhere.

Overcoming the Plutocratic Insurgency

Far-Right economic revolution.

What he says about academia, tenure, and academic freedom is right on target, despite what anti-intellectual low-brow (and failed academics who pretend to be high-brow) Type I “activists” believe.  For example, how long would KMacD have lasted at CSULB if he didn’t have genuine tenure (genuine tenure being an increasingly rare characteristic)?

To the broader point, extreme pushback against the globalist plutocratic elites is coming, and the Far-Right needs to be on the correct side in this struggle – the side of the economic “left.”  I put “left” in scare quotes because the “socialism” in “national socialism” does not equate to Marxism, but refers to the subordination of economics to political and racial objectives, instead of the other way around, which is what the Rule of Money have brought us today.

Laissez-faire capitalism has to go, plutocracy and oligarchy have to go, the idea that the “Right” broadly defined has to side with “big business” has to go as well.  And all the Alt Wrongers, with their ”sweet business deals” and their vision of a Jewish/Asian-dominated globalist society that differs from our current situation only in that it lacks Negroes and Hispanics has to go as well.

The Revolution has to be comprehensive: economic as well as racial, cultural, social, etc. We need to take the lead, and not let the anti-White Left take leadership of the anti-plutocratic resistance by default.

We need to acknowledge realities (including AI/automation, which is coming) and make sure the People benefit, not the Plutocracy, we need to support the “citizen’s dividend” idea, social credit, a distributive economy, but one based on racial principles, for our own people.

And as for all the libertarians, the HBD Alt Wrongers, the suit-and-tie conservatives who think that ghetto gang bangers are the only problem – they themselves are part of the Problem, not part of the Solution.

Economic Justice has to be part of the program to save Race and Civilization. Of Red, White, and Black, the Red component cannot be forgotten.

Der Movement in Der News: 10/21/17

It’s…Der Movement.

Consider this comment from a prominent Alt Right leader:

Spencer in Friberg [sic] are in a pickle here, because anything negative they say about Jorjani immediately raises the question: “Then why did you associate with him?”

Just substitute Johnson and Brimelow for Spencer and Friberg, and substitute Hermansson for Jorjani, and the statement has the same validity.

I’m not taking sides here.  A pox on BOTH your houses.

If you wonder why the “movement” rank-and-file supports failed leadership and enables an affirmative action policy, then consider what that rank-and-file consists of. Der Movement marches on.

Outsourcing panhandling:

Greg asked me to pen this week’s fundraiser update to bring a fresh voice and perspective.

This is an interesting, useful, and truthful analysis.

But we should turn the tables here.  Revenge and domination – really, revenge, since as separatists we don’t want to dominate others – can be motivating impulses for our side as well.  I remember an incident from my analog activism days; an older activist was explaining to a group of us younger fellows why he was an activist.  I paraphrase from memory:

Save the White race?  That bunch of losers?  The White race, today, is nothing.  Nothing.  I’m interested in REVENGE – revenge against the Jews and the others who are responsible for making Whites – MY race – into the losers that they are.

At the time, I thought this fellow – who was an “extremist” even among us racial nationalists – was a nutcase; today, two decades later, I have to admit that fellow was basically right, and we more moderate Nutzis were wrong.  It seems I’m getting more extreme with age, which goes against the mainstream paradigm.

I understand that “negative” comments like revenge go against the “oh, we really love everyone” meme that “movement” leaders have been trying to peddle to the mainstream.  But, hey, maybe the “youth culture” of the Alt Right would be more amenable to harder-edged memes.  Sure, the hard edge is not for the masses, but for the rest of us?  Why not?  But a hard edge doesn’t mean stupid ‘acting out” as described in the Florida link above.  It means instead highly disciplined behavior to overturn the System.  Winning is the ultimate revenge,

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.

Hunter-Gatherers Again

It’s dem dere hunter gatherers!

More of the same.


The main part of my talk traces to evolutionary roots in the hunter-gatherer culture that is especially prominent in northern Europe.

Yes, sir!  Unfortunately suicidal pathological altruism seems especially prominent in Italy as well.

Must be all those Celto-Germanic Nordic Northern Italians!  Salvini looks like Dolph Lundgren’s younger brother!  Of course it’s the Salvini types who are the ones most in opposition to the invaders…

And the “movement” wheel just goes on turning, turning, turning….

In all seriousness, look at this chart (and note where it was posted!).

On the individualism-collectivism scale, Italy is in the same range as Sweden, and is more individualistic than the hunter-gatherer-enriched nations of Germany, Austria, Estonia, Poland, and Finland – never mind Russia!.  If we want to look outside Europe, then Northeast Asians, who are, so we are told, descended from Asian hunter-gatherers, are sky-high on the collectivist side.

To put it mildly, looking at that chart one cannot see any clear correlation between hunter-gatherer ancestry and individualism.

That is one major problem I have with Der Movement, particularly its Alt Wrong HBD faction. They are so emotionally invested in their theories (hello, Richard Lynn!) that they are not willing or able to deal with contrary data. The whole Popperian scientific method is foreign to them; instead, they are highly Kuhnian indeed.  They have their paradigm, and they’ll continue making up ad hoc explanations for poor data fits until the whole intellectual edifice collapses.

Isn’t it better to refine – or change – the paradigm before that happens?  Isn’t it better not to wait for anti-White leftists to point out the obvious flaws?  Isn’t it better to first listen to rightists who repeatedly warn you that there are serious flaws in your paradigm?  If you have scientifically valid explanations, then give them?  Just repeating the same things over and over again does not address the issues at hand.

A Diaspora Future For Whites?

A similar viewpoint.

I’ll chalk up the similarity of this piece to my essay here with the old adage: “great minds think alike.”

Putting aside the issue of memetic precedence and considering content, I believe the fundamental idea underlying both pieces need to be taken into serious consideration by those few serious-thinking activists.  Our future may well be more like For My Legionaries and A People That Shall Dwell Alone than The Turner Diaries or some other piece of chest-thumping “movement” nonsense.

King Cuck?

Where’s the EGI?

KMacD wrote up something about Steve King’s recent comments, and I have some comments of my own about it.  Emphasis added:

However, in explaining what he meant in a follow-up interview (where super liberal Cuomo states “[America is]known … as a bastion of diversity and it is an unqualified strength for us”), King makes it clear that he is all about cultural and genetic assimilation — that he opposes setting up of isolated ethnic/religious enclaves that remain isolated from the rest of society even after 2 or 3 generations. Indeed he looks forward to the day when all Americans look the same as a result of intermarriage, presumably some shade of brown, with genetically recessive blondness entirely eradicated. 

One can make all sorts of hand-waving excuses for King, but that is really inexcusable. Cuomo we know is a hardcore leftist – the over-rated and unassimilated son of an over-rated and unassimilated father. But for King to say such things is pathetic, and puts the latest “behold the King!” Alt Right hero worship in its proper perspective.  If we are going to have Third Worlders, better they remain in their enclaves than to mix their genes (and their bizarre and alien cultural mores) with White America.  

I’m of a mixed mind with respect to King’s comments with respect to the long-term strategic effects. On the one hand, on balance, his comments are a net positive, shifting the discussion in a more “rightward” direction than anything uttered by the “God Emperor: himself.  On the other hand, King’s cucked Alt Lite culturalism harms European genetic interests and diminishes the positive value of his original comments.  Criticism of King – even with the constraints he no doubt believes he has in speaking his mind – is justified since no one asked him to make the comments to begin with.  He decided to broach the subject and he has the responsibility for the direction he takes those comments, and he is thus responsible if the discussion does into a sterile cul-de-sac of cucked civic nationalism and aracial culturalism.  If he believes he will be “compromised” by going too far, then he could have hedged a bit more artfully, without throwing genetic interests completely out the window.  If he’s not capable of being artful and cagey when discussing these matters, then he should keep his mouth shut and his tweets off the Internet.

Here is where the “EGI Firewall” could have been helpful.  If King (and others) had an understanding of genetic interests and if he – and others – internalized the attitude that genetic interests are ultimate interests and that defense of those interests are fundamental and non-negotiable, then he would not have gone off in the aracial civic nationalist Alt Lite culturalist direction.  The EGI Firewall would have blocked off any temptation to throw race and blood “under the bus.”  He would realize that genetic assimilation, intermarriage, and the “browning” of White America were completely incompatible with the most important and basic considerations for the interests of his people.  He would have the theoretical underpinning to reject maladaptive memes, giving him the confidence and moral courage to defend the primacy of race and blood.  Ultimately, there is why Salter’s work is so important: if one internalizes the EGI worldview, then one will never put culture, economic growth, cognitive elitism, or any other proximate interests above the ultimate interest of biological fitness.  Thus, the “movement’s” relative disregard for Salter’s work proves destructive.  If the “movement” was immersed in EGI, then it would have percolated into the Alt Right and from there 

Perhaps, given his original comments, his views are closer to ours than he dares (publicly) admit; however, if so, he perhaps should have considered whether if it was worth making the comments to begin with if he was not willing to go all the way with them.  As I said, I see it as a net positive, but still, there’s some negativity mixed with the positive and the negativity could have been avoided if King had refrained from commenting to begin with if he was not ready to fully and unconditionally assert the primacy of a biocentric view.  It would seem that this will be the job of someone else, in the future, someone who will take the baton from King and run further (to the “right”) with it.

Cuomo then presses the point, asking if Muslims, Jews, Christians, Italians, etc. are Americans, and asserting that “they are all equal … We don’t need babies from any one of those groups more than from any other of those groups.” Rep. King then seems to say that, although everyone is equal in the eyes of God and equal in the eyes of the law, not all groups contribute equally to society: “Certain individuals contribute more to society than others, and certain groups of people will do more on the productive side than other groups, that’s just a statistical fact.” Cuomo, being your standard liberal, says that these differences are entirely explained by differences in opportunity, whereas King puts the blame squarely on culture. But in any case, according to King, it has nothing to do with race: “It’s the culture, not the blood … it’s never been about race.” If children from other cultures were adopted into American homes (i.e., assimilated American homes), they would all grow up to be good Americans.

Again, I’m of two views here.  I can see the benefit of King stretching the bounds of discourse and making things easier for the next person to make more explicitly racial assertions.  But, still…to make such racially destructive comments, it’s not clear whether King perhaps should have not said anything at all if he couldn’t come out and support the primacy of race and blood.  You see, his comments are a double-edged sword – on the one hand, yes, it possibly eases the way for some future public figure to be more explicitly “racist,” but on the other hand, this scenario can be viewed as setting limits to discourse in that one can only broach these topics if one disavows explicitly biological arguments.  It is not clear, when all is said and done, which interpretation will win out – is King opening the door for race/blood/genetics or is he shutting the door?  I hope the former.  Given my oft-cited note that revolutions more typically occur when repression is suddenly relaxed, rather than when repression is greatest, if King can survive and prosper from his “controversial” comments, that can be viewed as a relaxation of repression making even more “extreme” public comments that much more plausible.

Rep. King is certainly pushing the limits of acceptable discourse in mainstream America. His talk about “other people’s babies” certainly does sound like he is referring to DNA, but he deftly dodged the bullet by framing it in terms of cultural assimilation.

One can give him the benefit of the doubt if we assume his intention is to stretch the discourse in a direction supportive of European racial survival. One wonders what would have happened had he pushed the limits past the boundary of race and DNA.  In the Trump era, it is not clear that the repercussions would be what they could have been before.  After all, the Left views his comments as they currently are as “racist White nationalism” – would their reaction would that much worse if he had gone “full racist?”  Maybe, maybe not…but we’ll need to wait for another incident to test those boundaries.

In the wake of the election, even some liberals, finally realizing this, began to call for an end to identity politics. Those who sow the wind reap the whirlwind. Identity politics is profoundly antithetical to the liberal traditions of the West based on individualism.

This is why they are so intent on shutting down any hint of White Identity.  It is also why the Sallis Strategy of chaos and balkanization is as realistic now than it has ever been,

On the other hand, from an Alt Right perspective Rep. King’s comments fall short of the mark. 

Yes, indeed.

And neither King nor Cuomo deal with the reality of race differences in IQ and impulse control which are so essential to success in navigating the complexities of contemporary society. Within American society, the racial gap in academic achievement continues, unaffected by the hundreds of billions of dollars expended on uplift programs for low-achieving minorities. European societies are now seeing the same pattern with African and Muslim immigrants.

But kinship differences trump (no pun intended) these proximate HBD-style concerns. EGI is more important than levels of achievement, IQ, and impulse control.

Does anyone seriously think that importing millions of Black African converts to Judaism would maintain Israel as a Jewish state?

Despite King’s disclaimers, he seems quite aware that the left is eagerly awaiting the demise of White America. In a radio interview, he stated, referring to people like Latino activist Jorge Ramos, “Their effort here is to be celebrating because the United States is moving towards becoming, the whites becoming a minority, a majority-minority within the country according to what their plan is.”King also recommended that listeners read the novel, The Camp of the Saints, by French author Jean Raspail, “a book about Europe being overcome by immigrants which has also frequently been referenced by top Trump adviser Steve Bannon. The book has been criticized as presenting a racist view of immigration.”

That at least is quite positive.  Note in that book Asians lead the way to the dispossession of Whites. Life follows fiction, as always.

On the whole, then, King would seem to be at least implicitly White and probably, if you got into his heart of hearts, he really does get it. Realizing that non-Whites are eagerly awaiting Whites becoming a minority has a way of doing that.

Also, King’s saying that Western culture is superior does flirt with the possibility that something about European genetic uniqueness fed into the triumph of the West. And if there is indeed something genetically unique about the peoples who created Western society — a genetic basis for Western individualism, then of course one could not recreate European civilization with peoples from a different gene pool. What’s so amazing is that liberals like Cuomo believe with absolute certainty that this could not be the case. It’s an a priori  moral certainty, not subject to debate and immune to all the data from behavior genetics and the long history of ethnic and religious conflict. And if you don’t subscribe to such ideas, you are an evil person — a moral cretin rightly outside of the morally defined ingroup.

This is all true.

Although I’m critical of a strictly “culturalist” view, I certainly am not one of those people who say: “when I hear the word culture, I reach for my gun.”  However, culture is not enough. Indeed, genetic interests are ultimate interests, so that race is more fundamental than culture.  No doubt culture is important, the most important proximate interest.  One cay crudely say: race with culture is vulgar; culture without race is effete.  More to the point is the realty that race and culture, genes and culture, are intertwined. A culture is the product of a specific genepool; however, that genepool is obviously influenced by culture, since the environment, of which culture is one prime component for humans, exerts selective pressure on the genes, hence shaping racial development and ethnogenesis.  It’s foolish for King and the Alt Right to pretend that a culture can thrive and grow with assimilated aliens; on the other hand, Nutzis act like vulgar barbarians when they dismiss out of hand the value of culture.
