It’s Der Failure

Digging deep into the “movement” woodpile.

I’d much rather Anglin would use this money for living expenses and to expand his business rather than throw it away on a lawsuit that he can never win. Basically, I tells the SPLC that all they need to do to drain the movement of capital is file nuisance lawsuits against our public figures. It is sad that our movement would not support Anglin to this amount until he got sued, and then only to raise money for lawyers, not for him.

Greg is correct about the danger of nuisance lawsuits.  However, we need to dig deeper here into this.  Anglin did not ask to be sued. Now, one could assert that Anglin’s actions against Gersh invited the suit, and fault him for that.

Let me be clear: in my opinion, Anglin did nothing wrong legally, and he did nothing wrong morally.  From what I’ve read, the only wrong incurred was against Spencer’s mother, who was – based on online public information and discussion – apparently the victim of a crude extortion plot against her property.  

But just because something is legally and morally justified does not mean it is wise.  Der Movement has a habit of starting fights it cannot win, of constantly backing down (hello, Mudshark Annie), of constantly being on the defensive, of constantly losing.  The whole Anglin lawsuit mess is another self-inflicted wound.

But let’s dig even deeper.  Perhaps the reason Anglin and followers engaged in juvenile jackassery – typical Alt Right lulzing trolling – was out of frustration that nothing could be done to remedy the injustice done to the Spencer family.  And whose fault is that?  Meet Der Movement.  If Der Movement had a proper legal infrastructure, Gersh could have been sued (instead of being the one suing Anglin).  If Der Movement had deep ties to the community and to law enforcement, and had people in poltical office, then pressure could have been put on the authorities to investigate if Gersh was, or was not, legally culpable for the situation with Spencer’s mother.  If the “movement” had something – anything – to show for decades of support, reaching into the millions of dollars, then it would be the other side who may well have been on the defensive, instead of once again having the “movement” on the defense, scrambling for support.

Let’s dig deepest of all.  Given the cucks of Montana, probably nothing could have been done, even though legal means.  But, but, but…I thought that all these “red states” are Whitopias, full of ethnically superior Hajnalites who are the salt-of-the-earth foundation of America’s racial renaissance.   Robert Mathews thought so – that is, before he got burned alive by the Reagan administration (you remember Reagan, the other Man on White Horse – “we won” Der Movement crowed in November 1980) in Washington state, that other bastion of the Northwest Imperative.

So, perhaps at the heart of the matter is an ethnic-genetic-biocultural phenomenon.  Who knows? Maybe the Alt Wrong have been right all along with their heavy breathing about “high trust hunter gatherers” – but rather than being a sign of racial superiority/strength, to the extremes exhibited by Montanans, it’s a cucking weakness.  And what about Der Movement’s failed leadership, its decades of unremitting failure and wasted millions of dollars? If (American) racial activism wants to lose the scare quotes and become a real movement, it needs to ditch the affirmative action program and draw leadership and top activist cadres from a broader base of the European-American population.

Best Article So Far to Appear at Counter-Currents

Read it and then read it again.

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

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

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

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

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

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