It’s Becoming a Somethingburger

Various issues.

I’ve been paying close attention to various interviews and announcements from health experts (Dutton swoons about ”credentialism” – let’s hear what the theology folks have to say about viral transmission). The situation is dire. The China Plague is spreading, the modes of transmission now include feces-lack-of-hand-washing-contamination as well as person-to-person via air, there’s complete skepticism about containment outside China, the UK is having big problems with this, and the SJW System has it “in” for Whites.

All we hear from the System/SJWs is that travel restrictions are “racist” and “discriminatory.” They WANT the disease to spread in the USA. Reading between the lines what we can observe is gross disappointment among the SJWs that there aren’t more Whites infected and dying. Why should only Asiatics suffer? Share and share alike! True egalitarianism is achieved when the White Privilege of not being infected and dying ends, and the White devils start suffering like everyone else.

Meanwhile, there is news (if you believe the sources) that “re-infection” can occur with deadly consequences. That is, a person is or has been already infected, is fighting it or has recovered, has antibodies, gets exposed again, and that secondary exposure over-stimulates the immune system, with the resulting “cytokine storm” killing the patient. Whether or not this turns out to be reality, the established facts about the China Plague are bad enough.

True enough, some patients only have very mild symptoms. So?  Even with “Captain Trips” there were some few who were immune. Oh, that’s fiction, you may say.  However, it reflects reality. A plague does not have to kill, or even sicken, everyone to be absolutely devastating. Just ask those Europeans who survived The Yellow Death (called by System liars The Black Death).

More to the point is that even IF, starting today, the whole thing fizzles out, it has already had significant sociopolitical consequences in China and economic consequences that will have ripples throughout the world in 2020.  But it is not fizzling out starting today, is it?

This is a Somethingburger, my friends, not a Nothingburger (as the retarded “movement” would have you believe).

Once again: Der Movement – wrong, wrong, they’re always, ALWAYS wrong.

This situation will, if nothing else, prove the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of Der Movement, and even more so of its HBD race realist Yellow Supremacist faction.

As stated here before, you know damn well that if it were Black Africans – or even lower on the HBD hierarchy, S. Italians – responsible for this disaster, the “movement” would be screaming about it night and day, and the spontaneous ejaculations from HBD micropenes would rival Niagara Falls in volume and intensity.  But China?  Move on, move on, there’s nothing to see here.


The race war of Yellow against White.  China is waging chemical and biological warfare against the White race.  HBDers support China.  HBDers are genocidal race traitors.


Another human murdered by the monsters. HBD supports the monsters.  HBD is a criminal conspiracy.


Two serious coronavirus-related Amren questions:


1. Is Derbyshire attending the 2020 Amren conference?


2. If so, does that constitute a health risk for the other attendees?

Read this account of a typical effete White.

What’s interesting is that the name under the title read:

[name redacted]*

While at the end it said:

Spencer J. Quinn is a frequent contributor to Counter-Currents and the author of the novel White Like You.

And then the other name was fairy soon after changed to Quinn. The other name is also a Counter-Currents contributor. Does this mean that the same people contribute Counter-Currents articles under different names – artificially inflating the “diversity of opinion” at that site?  Or was it just an error like previously confusing Hampton and Johnson (unless they really are one and the same, which I am not claiming [although anything is possible])?

You know, the two-for-one deal is not impossible. I’m not saying that’s the case here – as I said the possibility of an error through incompetence is always possible when you’re dealing with these guys.  But it’s not impossible. 

*I’m not going to put the name here, since the fact that it was quickly changed means that either the author does not want to be associated with that essay by name or it was another example of affirmative action incompetence (or both). I don’t reveal things that are private and not already overtly public; that’s not what EGI Notes is about.  

Either possibility – multiple personas as really one person or merely repeated episodes of website formatting incompetence – does not reflect well on Counter-Currents. Then again, Counter-Currents does not reflect well on Counter-Currents, so what else can we expect?

Dutton’s critique of Rushton never happened, right?

Speaking of which, see this.  I’ll say this for Dutton – he delegitimizes HBD more than any of my own criticisms have so far achieved. Besides behaving like a juvenile jackass on podcasts, he engages in the HBD version of “purity spiraling” – attacking other HBD figures, first Rushton (but, strangely enough, in this review, Rushton’s material is now considered sound) and now Murray.  Dutton then promotes the works of pseudoscientists like “Tricky Dick” Lynn and “the Italian” Piffer, whose “work” has been analyzed, and refuted, here and elsewhere. Mr. Hello Hello Hello is like a loose cannon rolling along the deck of the HMS HBD, firing away wildly.  Keep it up, Eddie.

And then we have this, courtesy of Counter-Currents:

But there is a faction of the Dissident Right who believe that Bernie Bros should be the next frontier. Richard Spencer — whose new wife is a DSA socialist — recently endorsed Bernie Sanders for president, and TRS’s Fash the Nation has been giving Bernie glowing — no pun intended — coverage lately.

Can you doubt Sallis when I say that Der Movement is a pathetic joke?

See this.  I will assume that Strom is sincere in his concern about White demographics, his attitudes toward the Jewish power establishment, and his worries about the “browning of America.”  Very well.  Now, Ron Unz is a wealthy Jew who has written positively about the Hispanic influx into America and has written negatively about White nationalism.  Unz is a promoter of HBD, a cult that celebrates “high Jewish and Asian IQ.” Indeed, Unz has funded, according to online documentation, the likes of “Razib” Khan and Greg Cochran. Curiously, certain “White nationalists” write for Unz’s website, promoting the Unzian HBD agenda.  Whether they are paid to do so I do not know.  Nevertheless, the idea of a White nationalist writing for Unz is one that, in my opinion, any authentic White nationalist should denounce. Unfortunately, Strom has heretofore refused to critique Unz and the Unzian clique of WN traitors.


This is HBD:

JohnEngelman 
I believe that the biggest problem facing our planet is the growth in the world’s population. I believe that the second biggest problem is that people with IQ’s below 100 are having more children than people with IQ’s above 100. I believe that the third biggest problem is that computer technology and automation are eliminating jobs people with IQ’s below 100 are able to learn.
I believe the human species is approaching another genetic shakeout. It won’t be pretty, but the result will be a human population with a much higher average intelligence. Because I believe that the trend toward miscegenation is unstoppable, and will accelerate, this more intelligent human species will be a multi racial hybrid.

Again, we see the HBD objective: Whites mongrelized out of existence, a “high IQ” Jeurasian admixed caste – but no doubt large numbers of unmixed Chinamen will continue to exist; you can’t mongrelize 1.4 billion ethnocentric White-hating Orientals.  Interesting that some of us are labeled as “paranoid” and “crazy and bitter” for denouncing HBD for things that the HBDers themselves heartily embrace.


HBD is purely an anti-White hate cult.  Meanwhile, Strom is strangely silent about HBD.  Why?


An idiot:

It is a good deal easier to get along with blacks from the Caribbean than it is wit  [sic] natural-born American blacks, especially when they are urban, less so if they are rural.

Obviously this is someone who never had to live among Jamaicans, who are as far below “American” Blacks as the latter are from Whites.  Reggae is to rap what rap is to Mozart.  Experto Crede.


The retard Zman:

In reality, the alt-right was doomed when the face of it became a narcissistic dilettante, incapable of organizing a one car funeral. A serious movement never would have tolerated Spencer as the leader.

Sure.  But that’s incomplete.  Let’s rewrite that last sentence:

A serious movement never would have tolerated Spencer, Johnson, Taylor, Pierce, Duke, Brimelow, MacDonald, Parrott, Heimbach, (fill in the blank for any other of the myriad Quota Queens), as leaders.

Back to Zman:

The whole Spencer fiasco puts the lie to the claims by some that optics are unimportant in their politics. The sole reason Spencer rose to become the face of the alt-right is he looked good on camera.

No, you liar, that’s not the sole reason.

Politics is always about keeping the ends in mind and making the necessary compromises to further those ends. 

As long as those compromises do not compromise the ends themselves, which is something all of the mainstreamers and “dissident right” grifters do not (or pretend to do not) understand.  When the means contradict the ends, then those means are useless, no matter how “practical” they are. Sailer’s “citizenism” is a perfect example, albeit that Sailer’s error is compounded by the reality that “citizenism” is no more practical in today’s America than is full-throated White nationalism.

Politics is a means to an end. 

Indeed it is.

Ideologues always fall into the trap of thinking politics is an end in itself…

No, you shallow-minded retard.  If the ideology is structured to achieve a specific end, then it is necessary.  Indeed, it is anti-ideological “practical” “political pragmatism” that ends up believing that “being in power” is an end in itself, regardless of what is or is not achieved with that power.

…which is why ideological states are always unstable and usually short lived. 

Define “ideological state.”

Successful outsider politics has to be practical in its application in order to win ground in the vast area that is always up for grabs between the orthodoxy and those challenging it.

And then do what with that “won ground?”  Mainstream conservatism took that “won ground” and surrendered it without a fight to the Left. Is that the sort of “pragmatic success” we should emulate?

A sincere man of genuine greatness!  When will Johnson be eschewed as a “movement” “leader?”

“Awful political takes.”  Of course.  Just like a Negress in some local DMV somewhere, “movement leaders” never actually have to be right about anything.  Their affirmative action protections are their shield.

It’s Der Dutton!

And other news.  And a statement of principle.

This is how Dutton responds to criticism:

Credentialists tend to be low IQ and uncreative. This is why credentials are so important to them. The aim of science is consilience, hence all important thinkers pursue areas they lack formal qualifications in. You interlocutor is a credentialist and thus a nobody.

No neuroticism there, no siree.

But, hey, I agree, we should fundamentally critique ideas, not credentials or the lack thereof.  Dutton should be eschewed because – independent of credentials – he is a typically dishonest and ignorant HBDer who covers up the vacuity of his “thought” with his shtick of juvenile jackassery.

Further, by Dutton’s logic, Ted Sallis has just as much right to comment on issues such as HBD and race science as does Dutton, Lynn or anyone else. EGI Notes is consilience, don’t you know. I lack formal qualifications in psychometry; hence I am an important thinker in the field (Duttoninan logic). Lynn and MacDonald then are credentialed hacks – just following the logic of Mr. Hello Hello Hello.

Dutton’s appeal to reverse snobbery obviously has its limitations. When a paper in the scientific literature is peer-reviewed, that review is typically performed by someone with expertise (“credentials”)  in the relevant field, so as to (in theory) submit an informed judgment. The fact that HBD’s Asian gods pervert the process through rampant ethnic nepotism does not alter the validity of the idea behind the process.  When the military wants better nuclear weapons designs, they go to nuclear physicists and nuclear engineers, not to plumbers.  Altering gene expression via CRISPR might more dependably be done by a molecular biologist rather than by a florist. A chemist might be a better source of information on how to synthesize novel organic compounds than a janitor.  

Yes, it is true that all ideas must be evaluated on their own merits, but dispensing with the value of expertise through ad homenim perjoratives like “credentialism” would so distort the signal-to-noise ratio as to make scientific and technical progress virtually impossible.

But, you see, HBDers don’t care about scientific or technical progress and they certainly don’t care about the truth. HBD is a political movement aimed at replacing kinship-based racialism with a form of aracial “cognitive elitism” that benefits Jews and Asians.

I view HBDers with the same sort of visceral disgust that the average person would view a festering wound swarming with maggots.

Dutton fits in well with Spencer.  Two tragicomic imbeciles.

This is a good Taylor video.


Read this.

The rise of the Ultras to prominence is an understandable response to news that Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has granted permission for two migrant NGOs to land refugees at Italian ports, intends to reintroduce benefits and protections for asylum seekers that were previously scrapped by Matteo Salvini, and will reinstate residency permits for illegals.

Conte’s actions will inevitably further inflame a precarious situation, especially after a group of Nigerians dismembered the body of eighteen-year-old Pamela Mastropietro in Macerata, three migrants raped and murdered sixteen-year-old Desiree Mariottini in the San Lorenzo area of Rome, and a recently arrived Ghanaian man is convicted of desecrating the Basilicas of Santa Prassede, San Giovanni de Fiorentini and San Vitale.

I don’t understand.  The great and good Sir Desmond Jones has told us that Italy is 100% homogeneous and will remain so until the end of time, forever and ever, amen.


Nigerians?  Ghanaians?  Pfah!  Simply some Sicilians and Calabrians.  Nothing to get worked up over.


See this. Remember, Greg Johnson has stated that Trump is a sincere man of genuine greatness, so it must be true!


Watch this.  Someone forward that to The Master of Disaster, who is no doubt shedding trust fund tears over the tail-between-his-legs exit of King Andy Eggroll from the Presidential race.


Now, a statement of principle, given once again, for the benefit of newer readers.  


You may have noticed that this blog is sharply critical of (among other things) what I call Der Movement.  My critics – the Quota Queen grifters who sponge off of the “D’Nations” stupidly given them by naive retards – call me “crazy and bitter” and given to “the paranoid style” and “with nothing positive to contribute” (When I was writing for their own websites, indirectly helping them to rake in the shekels, then I was A-OK, of course. Of course).


I will explain, once again, what the criticism is about. I have been involved in the “movement” – in WN racial activism – since the mid-90s, that’s ~25 years, a quarter-of-a-century.  That’s been both analog and digital activism, I’ve met with or corresponded with all sorts of “big names” (including a private face-to-face audience with The Great Man), I’ve written for all sorts of racialist websites and journals (including those of people who call me “crazy” today), I was interviewed for Griffin’s book, I’ve seen all sorts of activists and organizations and websites come and go, and I’ve been following all of the “movement” politics and drama, from the days of Pierce vs. Covington to the days of Johnson vs. Spencer.  I’ve seen it all, so to speak.


And so I am telling you now, based on all of that experience, and based on my considered judgment (that honest readers can discern is generally sound), that the “movement” as it exists today has an ABSOLUTE ZERO chance of getting anything constructive done. It’s a joke, it’s a grift, it’s a dead end, it’s a cul-de-sac.  Continuing to “throw bad money after good” (figuratively as well as literally) with this failed “movement” will lead to total defeat and to racial destruction.


We need a NEW MOVEMENT that:


1. Is based on sound principles

2. That rejects the affirmative action policy and has a merit-based leadership

3. That eschews defectives and defective paradigms

4. That thinks strategically, with long term plans and plenty of contingency planning as well

5. That not only engages in (real) metapolitics (not grifting), but also electoral politics (where and when appropriate), and (real) community building (not homosexual hook-ups at meetings)


There is only so much niche space – as long as Der Movement exists, a New Movement will not really be able to get off the ground.  Hence, Der Movement needs to be opposed, and if that opposition must take the form of mocking ridicule and deconstruction, so be it.

A Jewish Coup?

And other issues.

Read this.

Mostly true, but perhaps MacDonald should worry more about the Jewish-HBD coup to compromise Der Movement, effects of which are manifested in TOO itself.

I believe the present political crisis should be seen as a struggle between our new, Jewish-dominated elite, stemming from the 1880–1920 First Great Wave of immigration, and the traditional white Christian majority of America, significantly derived from pre-Revolutionary colonial stock but augmented by subsequent white Christian immigration.

According to Lind’s America’s Tribes hypothesis – a hypothesis supported by historical data – the “Yankee” fraction of the “significantly derived from pre-Revolutionary colonial stock” group is actually part of the “Yankee-black alliance” that is now the Yankee-Jew-Colored Alliance.

The history of US politics is little more than the history of these two coalitions: the southern-Catholic alliance and the Yankee-black alliance…the civil rights movement united Jews with blacks and their traditional allies, greater New England Protestants and Germanic Americans, against white southerners and northern white Catholics. Today, Jews are the most loyal white ethnic group in the northern coalition

An online comment about The Lords of HBD:

If you expect the truth from the Chinese government, then you are, respectfully, quite insane. And as for anyone seriously questioning the official pronouncements, a pipe dream at best.
My wife is Chinese, naturalized many years ago. Her oldest sister, who was raised in Communist China looked right at me once and said: The Tiananmen Square massacre never happened; because, the government said it never happened. They would not lie.
When I asked her about the press coverage, she calmly and clearly stated it was a fabrication of the western press meant only to embarrass the Chinese government. Really.

He’s a sincere man of genuine greatness!

The HBD view of an issue of significant relevance to the Alt Right is seen here. The “Gay Shaman Theory” must be very popular among a certain faction, a certain cabal, of the Alt Right. The Masters of the Mannerbund!  No wonder that the cabal is in love with HBD, especially with this fellow saying that having a “homosexual caste” is beneficial for a society.  Will Andrew Joyce critique Dutton on this?  If not, why not?  Why are the HBDers a sacrosanct caste within Der Movement?

In any case – the video is classic HBD.  Long on theory, short on data, and completely deficient of skepticism-inspired hypothesis testing. “Just so stories” are as essential to HBD as is Yellow Supremacism.

Who’s a White Nationalist?

Not Brimelow.

An online dictionary definition of “nationalism” –

…identification with one’s own nation and support for its interests, especially to the exclusion or detriment of the interests of other nations.

It’s simply this question – what does one consider their “own nation” to be? If the highest form of “own nation” is “the White race” (however defined), and if the above definition applies, then one is a “White nationalist.”  Of course, it is a bit more complex than that, since the culture and ideology of White nationalism has evolved to the point where we can say that certain ideologies, memes, and paradigms are consistent, or not consistent, with being a White nationalist.  Read this.

For “white nationalist” to be a slur, the term itself would have to be generally accepted as immoral or derogatory. It would also have to be used in a way that incorrectly labels one a white nationalist. Calling Greg Johnson, a white nationalist, for example, is not a slur. He embraces the label.

The interpretation of the term white nationalist is just one interesting aspect of the lawsuit brought by Peter Brimelow, editor of VDare. He is suing the New York Times, according to Brimelow, for falsely labeling him a white nationalist. He not only denies being a white nationalist, he claims the company deliberately labeled him as such in an effort to damage his reputation, even after he made many good faith attempts to point out the error to them. He is seeking $5 million in damages.

Another interesting bit of this is the unspoken dispute over what exactly makes someone a white nationalist. Greg Johnson, for example, has written a book describing white nationalism. He calls himself a white nationalist. Peter Brimelow, in contrast, has never used to term to describe himself and has been generally negative toward the use of it as a label. No doubt both men share similar opinions on many matters, but they have many important differences as well.

Who is the best to decide if someone is a White nationalist? How the person in question self-identifies of course is important.  Perhaps even more telling and powerful is the opinions of others who consider themselves to be White nationalists. Do they consider the person in question to be a White nationalist or not? The opinions of numbers of actual self-identified White nationalists are no doubt more accurate than that of the hacks of The New York Times.

Readers of this blog know that I – a self-identified White nationalist – am no fan of Peter “Happy Penguins” Brimelow.  However, I 100% support his action against The New York Times.  Why?  Because Brimelow is 100% correct and 100% honest in denying being a White nationalist.

Brimelow is not a White nationalist.  A true White nationalist would not give a forum to the likes of Derbyshire, never mind being friends with that “man.”  I view Brimelow, if he actually has an ideology other than being pro-Happy Penguins, as a Paleoconservative immigration restrictionist and as someone who, if they are not a HBDer themselves, is certainly sympathetic to the “race realist” view.  I see no evidence that Brimelow subscribes to ORION – Our Race Is Our Nation – no evidence that he believes that the likes of Michelle Malkin and “Rosie” Derbyshire should not be part of his nation.

Likewise, I do not view Jared Taylor as a White nationalist, and, indeed, he has self-identified as a “White advocate” and a “Yellow supremacist”  as well as a “race realist.”  Ideologically, he’s similar to Brimelow, albeit being more strongly identified to both a “White identity” and to HBD.

Greg Johnson? Well, he not only self-identifies as a White nationalist, but also writes books attempting to tell us all what White nationalism means.  On the other hand, his extreme identification with petty nationalist ethnonationalism, and his blog’s promotion of what I term “ethnoimperialism” (the ideology of Northwest Europeans colonizing other people’s nations and turning those nations into their private brothel or “crash pad”) calls into question just what kind of White nationalist he really is.  That’s a debate for another time.

Pierce, Strom, and Duke can be considered White nationalists, but for them, the question always is/was what precisely do they mean by “White” – in fact an issue for most of Der Movement.

Spencer is floating in an ideological “no man’s land” currently.  Certainly, in the past he could be considered to be a White nationalist; what he is now I do not know.

MacDonald? I do not know how he self-identifies, and his current infatuation with HBD Nordicism raises the question as to his ingroup, but I suppose he may fall in the same category as Pierce, Strom, and Duke – it depends on what you mean by “White.”  A clarification on his part with respect to self-identification would be helpful.

As far as all of the Millennial activists out there, all I hear from them is basically Beavis-and-Butthead sniggering, so who knows?

Brimelow, however, is fully justified in his action and we can only wish him well in that endeavor.

Just to be balanced about men going bonkers for sexual favors, some established and purportedly sane men have gone ga-ga for bum-boys, Jeremy Thorpe and Lord Brown come to mind.

Yes, and not only them.

From TOO:

In these times of true degenerate modernity we really do need figures that are wholesome and are worthy of emulation. That’s why Hitler has so many admirers in our circles, nobody (apart from the usual suspects) has yet produced any evidence of degeneracy or weirdness in his personal life.

Two words: Geli Raubal.

What’s Good for the Danish Goose is Good for the Iranian-Armenian Gander?

And other stupidity from Counter-Currents and the rest of Der Movement.

Remember when Johnson was attacking Roosh for being an aggressive “player” doing sex tourism throughout Europe, particularly Eastern Europe? 

Thus, Johnson wrote (*):

How can White Nationalists extol Eastern Europe as the most racially and culturally healthy part of the white world and condone the kind of man who treats it as a cheap brothel?

So, how does this differ from the likes of “Fullmoon Ancestry” – revered writer for Counter-Currents (never mind Anton, another of the same)?

Ahh…you see, while Roosh is Iranian-Armenian, and thus not derived of European ethnic ancestry, Mr. Fullmoon is “proudly Danish.”

But here we see a problem. That distinction might make sense (**) if Johnson and Counter-Currents consistently took a very broad, pan-racial, civilizational view of human differences. In that case, let’s call it the von Hoffmeister perspective, ethnic Danes scouring Eastern Europe for native women to “date” is intra-racial and hence acceptable, while an Iranian-Armenian doing the same is inter-racial and is not. Thus, this views says Europeans are fungible, while Roosh is the outsider.

But, alas, Counter-Currents is a leading defender of extreme ethnonationalism – indeed praising and defending petty nationalism.

Very well. However, if we want to focus primarily on highlighting and preserving the distinctiveness of different European nations and peoples, then we need to agree that Danes are different from, and distinct from Ukrainians or Balts or Hungarians or Poles or Balkanoids or whatever. You may say that in a relative sense they’re closer than Iranians or Armenians, but they are still different, and the ethnonationalists – the petty nationalist extreme ethnonationalists championed by Johnson – would want to stress the need for homogeneity, sovereignty, and preservation of the different European peoples as they exist today.

In that sense, it is as morally and ethically correct to condemn the sexual tourism of ethnic aliens like Fullmoon (and Anton) as it is ethnic/racial aliens like Roosh.  

And yet not only does Counter-Currents not condemn the ethnically invasive, ethnoimperialist sex tourism of Fullmoon and others of his ilk, but gives it a proud forum on the site, giving advice to others about using Eastern Europe as their brothel.

You see, ethnonationalism is so very, very good, and so very, very natural and optimal that none of its promoters can actually practice its tenets in their own private lives. Whether it’s Fullmoon using Eastern Europe as his brothel or John Morgan using Budapest as his “crash pad,” other people’s nations and women are ripe for the taking.

And then they get hysterical over Bang Poland.  

Disgusting hypocrites.

Either you believe in petty nationalism or you do not.

Executive Summary: The type of petty nationalism espoused by Johnson is not practical in today’s world. No one really wants it – least of all the petty nationalists themselves, who cannot get enough of exploiting other people’s nations.

Johnson trying to pathologize criticism of his grifting dishonesty.

Johnson strikes a devastating blow against Andrew Joyce!  Pathetically petty.

OK Millennial:

Like any big bad internet racist xenophobe sexist holocaust-denying huwite supremist worth his salt, I…am somewhat doglike in my behavior. I am inattentive and easily distracted, especially by commotion, strongly territorial and argumentative when I find my territory threatened, I use my nose for orientation far more than the average human, I get a little nutty and act out if I do not get my daily walk and I have a touch of the extreme omnivore about me — I have yet to eat a sock, but I haven’t ruled it out.

Read this.  As MacDonald will say – cue the Vikings.  Cue the fetishists.  Always wrong, always humiliated by reality.

Notes:

*Johnson:

I despise moralistic ninnies and shit-stirrers who advance the premise that we can’t cooperate politically with anyone if we wouldn’t want to share a pup tent or take a shower with them.

I don’t know, I myself don’t think about male Internet celebrities and activists as people who I may want to “take a shower” with.  Or “share a pup tent” with.  Rather odd, wouldn’t you say?

**But even there I would not defend hedonistic sex tourism, even for exact co-ethnics.  I also don’t condone it for those who sexually exploit Southeast Asian nations – including some “White activists” who do so.

The Johnson Conundrum

The resiliency of Greg Johnson: An analysis of a skillful political actor.

Question: How has Greg Johnson not only survived various scandals and other embarrassments but emerged stronger than ever?

After the episode of the Pilleater Chronicles and its fallout and then the revelations about Polignano, folks like Forney were telling us (and this was nearly a year ago) that “Greg Johnson is finished” etc. The whole Forney-Friberg-Spencer anti-Johnson axis (that exists even though they may have squabbles among themselves; e.g., Forney being critical of Spencer) more or less adopted the line that Johnson and Counter-Currents were in terminal decline – “finished”- and  that there was no recovery from the scandals. These types were saying the same thing after Johnson was publicly humiliated by the HopeNotHate Hermansson infiltration, and his having Hermansson give the keynote address at a Counter-Currents meeting.  Then there was the Lewis infiltration.  Any one of these scandals would have been sufficient to delegitimize, perhaps terminally sink, another, less resilient, “movement leader.”  After each of these scandals, Johnson’s leading rivals in the Alt Right loudly predicted his imminent “movement” demise.

They were of course wrong, and Greg Johnson and Counter-Currents continues to go on strongly, raising money, continuing to be “big” in Der Movement – in fact, it is the Forney-Friberg-Spencer faction that seem to be in decline. If there has been any “victor” in the feud, it has been Johnson. Forney continues doing his thing but with very limited influence, Friberg apparently the same, and Spencer is reduced to wrapping himself in the Iranian flag and tweeting about his love life. On the other hand, the destructive Frankenstein monster that is Counter-Currents keeps on lumbering along, and it was Johnson who made international news after being arrested in Norway.  Johnson stands up there with Taylor and MacDonald as among the “Elders” of the (particularly, American) “movement”- I would argue that Greg Johnson’s power and influence within the “movement” has never been greater.

So, how has this happened?  How did Johnson emerge like a phoenix rising out of the ashes from these scandals to reach a pinnacle of influence, despite the scandals, and, perhaps just as importantly, despite the fact that Counter-Currents has displayed a shocking decline in quality, with the most moronic, superficial, hypocritical, pretentious, and juvenile crop of “writers” ever assembled at any one Far Right site?  Counter-Currents should be sliding into Majority Rights-style oblivion and irrelevancy, but, so far, unfortunately, the opposite is happening.

It would be instructive to examine why all of this is so. Such an examination will shed much needed light on Der Movement, and illuminate the underlying rot within that allows someone like Johnson to prosper.  After all consider – Spencer received more criticism, attacks, and disavowals because of the nonsense of Hailgate than did Johnson for the Pilleater and Polignano scandals, which were, at least in my opinion, far worse.

I don’t recall Taylor, Brimelow, and Devlin et al. publicly distancing themselves from Johnson over issues that are far more serious than Spencer acting like an immature jackass.


Some possible reasons for all of that include:

The affirmative action program.  The “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program is an important factor here. Johnson claims to be of English descent, of founding Old American stock, whose family has been in America since colonial days; he is also phenotypically Nordic.  Now, since Spencer himself is an Anglo-Germanic Nordic, and he has collapsed as an activist, having the proper ancestral (and phenotypic) bonafides is necessary but not sufficient.  One can have the “proper” ancestry and phenotype, but if they crash and burn completely, and are politically inept, nothing will help them. On the other hand, if Johnson was a wop or hunkie – or even possibly a “Nordish” mick – he would have not survived the scandals, regardless of anything else. Ancestry and phenotype are important factors here.

Lesson.  If you don’t have the “right” ancestry, forget about trying to have any influence in Der Movement. If you do have the “right” ancestry, then you really have to be incredibly inept and politically clumsy to fall from grace (e.g., Spencer).

Costs vs. benefits.  Let’s compare Spencer’s Hailgate to Johnson’s scandals with respect to the response (or lack thereof) of other “movement leaders.” I argue that “movement leaders” may well have had practical political reasons for disavowing Spencer while being silent about Johnson, through the weighing of costs vs. benefits.

Hailgate – although in and of itself petty nonsense – became national news because of the Alt Right-Trump connection and because of Spencer’s notoriety at the time, and because of the fact that the 2016 election results were fresh in everyone’s memory. The media leveraged Spencer’s poor judgment to attack other Alt Right leaders as “suit and tie Nazis.” This endangered the status, reputation, and money-making ability of various “leaders” and gave them a very strong motivation to publicly disavow and criticize Spencer. The benefits of disavowing Spencer were clear. What about the costs? These “leaders” probably considered Spencer an immature lightweight and judged that the costs of disavowing Spencer were minimal – Spencer would not, or could not, mount an effective counter-attack against them, and the supporters of these other “leaders” would be unlikely to withdraw support over their Hailgate criticism.

On the other hand, Johnson’s scandals have not been national news and have not directly impacted other major Alt Right figures. These others may have a moral and ethical obligation to criticize Johnson, but what do any of these types care about morals and ethics?  It’s a purely utilitarian consideration for them – there are little practical benefits for disavowing Johnson.  On the other hand, there are real costs. Johnson is a much more dangerous person than is Spencer, and more likely to mount an effective counter-attack. One could imagine Counter-Currents suddenly critiquing Amren over the JQ or once again saying Amren conferences are a waste, or critiquing VDARE’s taking so much “movement” money or once again criticizing Derbyshire, etc.  The same intensity that Counter-Currents focused on the likes of Spencer and Friberg would now be aimed at these other targets.  So, there’s a cost with no practical benefit, and issues of morals and ethics and character mean nothing.  So, these folks give Johnson a “pass” for things worse than what Spencer did.

Lesson. Morals, ethics, and character count for nothing in Der Movement and among “movement leaders.” It is all practical considerations of image, status, and “movement” politics, with a focus on assuring maintenance of supporters and supporter donations.  A well-connected person whose influence is feared by others of like standing can get away with more than someone like Spencer, who is more isolated and is not considered to have the gravitas to be a “heavy player” in the “game.”

The political game.  Johnson, for all his manifest faults, is very, very good at playing the political game – or at least as good as someone who has horrifically bad judgment and who likes feuding can be. Johnson inevitably ends up on bad terms with people in the “movement,” including former allies, but you’ll note that he typically only engages in one major feud at a time.  Former allies may become enemies, and sometimes, typically briefly, vice versa, but these twists and turns occur one at a time. He never engages in any major “two-front war.” Alliances are formed and broken, one feud is engaged in and won, former allies then become foes, new allies are recruited, etc.  Jorjani was used skillfully here – and that was as much the result of Spencer’s political clumsiness and it was Johnson’s skill at using people for just as long as he needs them to undermine his main foes. All these people are used and discarded as fits the agenda, with consummate political skill. As historical analogies, consider Julius Caesar using and discarding Pompey or Augustus doing the same with Marc Antony.  Or how Catherine the Great used and discarded “court favorites” (including lovers) to achieve power. Hitler used and the discarded various people during his rise to power – Eckart, Strasser, Rohm, etc.  One can consider how various organized crime figures rose to prominence through alliances, which they later discarded when it no longer suited them (often killing the former allies).  The Kennedys used Mafia connections to reach the White House, after which Robert Kennedy moved against these former allies. Then there’s the Hitler-Stalin Pact of 1939.  You get the picture.

Johnson is also good at “glad-handling” and having friendships with “movement” bigwigs that – for as long as they last before falling apart – provide a cushion of support and prevent those bigwigs from calling out Johnson’s faults. Taylor as an example.  Note that Johnson won’t call out Taylor for “being in bed with the press” (as I note here), while criticizing others. Note that Johnson now supports and attends Amren conferences despite telling us several years ago that attending such meetings was a waste of time and money (money being, of  course, better used for “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents).  Thus, in summary, despite his proclivity to feud, Johnson has still maintained friendly relations with a number of “movement” bigwigs, and that no doubt helps insulate Johnson from the consequences of his manifest failures and various scandals.

Further, whatever what actually happened, the actual “technics” of each accomplishment, the end result was that – if Polignano’s correspondence with Friberg can be believed – Johnson was able to remove Polignano as having any control over Counter-Currents. And John Morgan, originally with Arktos, has ended up with Counter-Currents.  Whether all of this was the result of Machiavellian plotting or just serendipity, one cannot argue with the results. Johnson has weathered all sorts of storms, out-maneuvered rivals, and has a firm control of the Counter-Currents “empire,” such as it is. He therefore is revealed as a reasonably savvy player in the game and art of “movement” politics.  Much better than the likes of Spencer, who, by contrast, is politically clumsy and inept.

Lesson. Being right is not enough to advance your position; being wrong is not enough to retard your progress.  Humans are essentially political animals, and in any grouping that has individuals vying for status and to advance their agendas, political maneuvering will be important.  Johnson is a savvy political operator and thus has not only survived scandals that would have wrecked other prominent activists, but he has prospered while his main rivals (e.g., Spencer) have fallen by the wayside. 


Should activists involved in Der Movement concentrate on such internal politics? The benefits are clear.  What about the costs?  There are costs of time and energy.  There is the mental costs; this can be exhausting, particularly for people who are by nature introverts.  Political maneuvering can always backfire. It also compromises, to some extent, honor and integrity, and, if it is noticed by others, can stain one’s reputation as an honest broker.

A cost-benefit analysis can be done. It depends on context.  An overt and public activist like Johnson has more to gain from politics than someone pseudonymous; however, pseudonymous activists can still benefit. Extroverts have it easier than introverts, but as long as they are not extreme and semi-autistic, introverts can still benefit from politics. The main thing is the affirmative action program.  An activist of Northwest European ancestry – particularly those of British/German/Scandinavian ancestry – can derive great benefit from engaging in “movement” politics since they have great potential for advancement and a rapid rise to leadership. On the other hand, activists of Southern (especially) or Eastern European ancestry  have little or nothing to gain since, regardless of how skilled they may be at the political game, their ancestry bars them from rising to the extent of those from more favored groups. Years of effort can be quickly wiped out by comments about “Moops and Mongols” and other manifestations of “movement” ethnic fetishism. So the relative costs and benefits in this case primarily vary based on their potential benefits, and that varies based on the ancestry of the activist in question. Now, in a truly pan-European movement, this factor would be eliminated, but perhaps there political maneuvering would be somewhat less important than it is in Der Movement.

The cabal and the alliances. Political connections go beyond just one-on-one relationships and include group alliances. There has been talk about a “homosexual cabal” in the “movement” – one that I was warned about as far back as the early 2000s.  There is also the HBD-ethnonationalist-Nordicist alliance. All these groupings, working behind the scenes, can provide crucial support for “movement leaders” who are well-connected.  On the other hand, people like Spencer, more isolated, and whose support is out-in-the –open and very shallow, have no deep support network that can provide a cushion in times of crisis.

Lesson. What goes on behind the curtain is often more important than what goes on in front of it.

The personal revelations. The personal revelations on the Pilleater tape did not have the effects that Forney, Friberg, and company thought, because it was basically an “open secret” in the “movement” for anyone who had a triple digit IQ, and anyone demanding “proof” was basically just engaging in obstructionism or were low-level idiots without any standing in the “movement.” Other aspects of that tape didn’t have much of an impression because things – such as bad behavior at meetings – have been rumored for a long time.  As far as Polignano goes and the revelations in that discussion with Friberg, who in the “movement” really cares about someone with a name like “Polignano” anyway?  Someone named “Johnson” screwing over someone named “Polignano” is a positive in Der Movement, not a negative.

Lesson. What people think is going to have a profound effect upon revelation may not do so, if the revelations are already suspected and/or known, or if the people hearing the revelation actually don’t think what they are hearing is really a bad thing at all.

Ideological flexibility.  Johnson maximizes support with remarkable ideological flexibility – what some would call inconsistency or even hypocrisy.  Johnson is a leading proponent of petty nationalist ethnonationalism – yet Counter-Currents publishes and promotes the work of Francis Parker Yockey and previously hosted some of my own essays promoting pan-Europeanism.  Counter-Currents has both promoted and criticized HBD, has both promoted and criticized Nordicism, has both promoted and criticized racial purity, has both promoted and criticized Amren conferences, has promoted both Traditionalism and Futurism, has White-Knighted as well as run the work of Devlin, Johnson has harshly criticized Derbyshire and then shared the stage with him at Amren – you get the picture.  This maximizes support and lets Johnson have a foot in different “movement” factions.

Lesson. Being two-faced has its advantages.


Practical consistency.  The ideological inconsistency doesn’t bother the Type I retards that constituent the majority of Der Movement, since their own “ideology” is simply a mash-up of Kempian Nordicism, chugging gallons of milk, screaming “Kek!,” etc. Indeed, as stated, the inconsistency is an advantage to maintain appeal among “activists” who are a cut above the dimwit majority and actually do care about ideas, but themselves are still too dim too realize that Counter-Currents has been all over the board on a number of important issues.


More important perhaps is consistency in the practical realm.  Successful activists tend to be ones that consistently are associated with a particular project or group or organization of project.  Taylor with American Renaissance.  Johnson with Counter-Currents.  MacDonald with The Occidental Observer and his various books.  Pierce (and Strom, who has survived controversy of his own) with the National Alliance. On the other hand, the more unsuccessful activists, whose careers are less than the sum of their parts – Spencer and Duke for example – have a history of jumping from one failed project to another.  At some point, I lost track of all of the various groups that Duke formed, led for a few years, and then abandoned. There was the White version of the NAACP (NAAWP), then wasn’t there something called NOFEAR, then EURO, etc?  And that was after his Klan days and his foray into electoral politics.  Spencer has had his varied Alt Right websites sites and the Alt Right corporation, and all sorts of other podcasts and projects, jumping from one to another. All of this failure and inconsistency  does not inspire confidence. On the other hand, stability such as Johnson with Counter-Currents gives him an air of “competence” and is another reason he survives scandal better than Spencer.

Conclusion. This is by no means a comprehensive analysis, but touches upon what I see as some of the main reasons why Johnson has survived and prospered, while Spencer has imploded.  Of course, some of it is just better judgment – Johnson had the good sense not to be involved in Unite the Right.  But, still, comparing the flak that Spencer got for Hailgate compared to Johnson thriving after scandal begs for an explanation – that I have tried to supply.  As further events unfold, more such analysis may be forthcoming.


The underlying lessons here demonstrate the importance of political networking, and various non-merit attributes, in elevating and sustaining individuals in positions of prominence in Der Movement. They provide a blueprint for “activists” with the proper affirmative action-approved ancestral backgrounds to follow to effectively play the political game, and allow others to better understand how they are being “played” by the “leaders” they so blindly support.


Johnson is not going anywhere; he is seemingly here to stay. Although there are some in the “movement” who will never accept him, enough others will so as to ensure that he will be a force within Der Movement for years to come, barring any unforeseen circumstances. And it is difficult to imagine what such circumstances could occur that would dethrone Johnson from his “leadership” position. Given the previous incidents and scandals that have proven unable to do so. As we can see, Amren continues to peddle Johnson’s work. One can expect that Greg Johnson and Counter-Currents will continue to have a significant impact on racial activism and prove the predictions of Forney false.


In any case, we can hope this analysis provokes more discussion and debate and, perhaps, soul-searching among “movement” “activists” with respect to their “leadership.”

Happy New Year 2020

Expect more of the same.

Expect a 2020 full of defeat, despair, humiliation, despondency, scandals, bizarre episodes, and embarrassment on the Far Right, particularly in America. Expect more Quota Queen affirmative action ineptness, tragicomic episodes of poor judgment and of transparently obvious gaslighting lies, infiltrations, of money-grubbing grifting…all of what we’ve previously seen – and more.


Yeah Zman...every year I review my previous year’s predictions, you despicable turd.  The latest here.


Read this.  Let’s not forget the claim of the great and good Sir Desmond Jones that Italy is ethnically and racially homogeneous and will remain so until the end of time, forever and ever, amen.


Wrong, wrong, they’re ALWAYS wrong.


Read this.  That’s great. When I read that, all I thought about is the White ethnic activists who are doubly screwed – they are dissidents from the System (with all that means as explained by MacDonald), but they are ALSO contemptuously despised by Der Movement, with the HBD Nordicism of TOO contributing to that state of affairs. They’re hated by both sides.


Read this.

Today, December 31st, is our American supporters’ last chance in 2019 to do like Robin Hood and take from the rich (the establishment) and give to poor freedom fighters (us), by making a tax-deductible donation to the Counter-Currents Foundation. If you donate today, your money will literally be taken from the coffers of the forces which are actively dispossessing white people, and instead be put to good use promoting our ideas and interests.

A lot of you probably don’t even know that there is a Counter-Currents Foundation, which is a tax-exempt educational foundation promoting scholarship on the New Right and related currents of thought. Donations to the Counter-Currents Foundation can be deducted from your US federal income tax.

Does this strike anyone else as strange? On the one hand, we are told that Counter-Currents is bravely “speaking truth to power,” a revolutionary memetic force –“poor freedom fighters” – against the System, a courageous beacon of truth and hope in a turbulent sea of persecution, censorship, and deplatforming. Yes, indeed, but it is also “a tax-exempt educational foundation,” donations to which “can be deducted from your US federal income tax.”

The same “forces which are actively dispossessing white people” grant tax-exempt status to “the Counter-Currents Foundation.”  Fight the System!  Live in the Golden Age today!  Strike a blow for the White race!  All certified and supported by tax-exempt status by the same System Counter-Currents is allegedly dedicated to displacing. Those hardcore vanguardist tax-exempt warriors of Counter-Currents!  I’m sorry, but how can you guys out there take any of this seriously?


And where are all those tax-exempt donations going exactly?  How exactly is the money being spent?


Then we have Spencer.  Is that the leftist SJW girlfriend?  See my opening prediction, as well as my more specific predictions from yesterday. 2020: Get ready for a bumpy ride!
