Mr. Olympia: Form vs. Function

The 2019 Mr. Olympia. 

Negroes at the top, with a NEC Iranian in the mix.  But, definitely, for bodybuilding, a long-standing Negro domination.

Has anyone else noticed racial stratification in “muscle and fitness” sports?  When it comes to strength and power, Whites dominate.  Northern Europeans – particularly physically huge, big-boned, Borreby types – dominate Strongman.  Weightlifting and powerlifting are also heavily White; Bulgarians are heavily over-represented in weightlifting success, while a broad spectrum of European types (including wops) do well in powerlifting. On the other hand, particularly over the last few decades, bodybuilding has been heavily dominated by Negroes, both relatively pure Negroes as well as mulattoes. So, functionality of muscularity = White; superficial appearance of muscularity = Negro. This is analogous to the observation by HBDers that Negroes can sometimes appear to be cognitively and technically competent via extroversion and charismatic confidence, but in reality it is the quiet White beta male who is competent and the Negro most definitely is not.  Function vs. the appearance of function.

But then, there are people on the Far Right who prefer form over function, eh?  The prop is very esthetic, indeed!

This is, frankly, a bit ludicrous:

The five stewardesses on an Eastern Airlines flight I took to Miami in 1974 looked like they could all be finalists in the Miss America pageant. Even though we hit a large air pocket I still remember it as one of the most enjoyable flights I ever took. The opening staff of the Norwegian Pavilion at Epcot in May 1988 provided a similarly memorable enjoyable experience. When I took my first trip to Scandinavia the following summer the experience was frequently repeated. I remember a bus tour of Copenhagen with a group of mostly retired Americans getting their first impression of Scandinavia, and everyone remarking about how good looking and blond the people were. I assumed they had expected a high level of blondness, but what they actually saw obviously exceeded their expectations.

Promoting public policy based on personal anecdotes.  By golly, a flight I took to Miami 45 years ago hit a large air pocket, but those five (not four, not six, but five, count ‘em, five) stewardesses made the flight ever so enjoyable!

And, of course, the requisite obsession with Scandinavia.

I’d like to point out that this obsession was leveraged by HopeNotHate in orchestrating their Hermansson infiltration.  That is not conjecture, not a matter of debate, but established fact. Hermansson himself described in detail how his ancestry was a key factor – perhaps the key factor – in enabling his easy and complete access to the higher circles of “movement leadership,” and how Steadman’s well-known fetishes in this regard made him a viable target.

Racial esthetics are important, no doubt. But everything needs to be put in their proper place, and individuals should not project their particular preferences into an overwhelming obsession to define the totality of racial nationalism.

In der news.

Someone knows Trump:

Exile

Absolutely. Seeing a PoC pulling (((tricks))) hits grugs in their monkey-brain. AOC even triggers big-brain Tucker. Trump’s Orange Soma by comparison. His rhetoric lulls them. I’m seriously worried about major (((shenanigans))) on guns and immigration if Trump gets a lame-duck second term. He’s already punch-drunk on the goofy idea that Princess-Abu-Titjob will be THOTUS someday and God only knows what “muh legacy” bullshit he’ll try for with nothing left to lose.

Good video by Taylor.

This podcast by Johnson and Morgan is reasonably good.

Johnson makes a good point that Jews clearly feel more comfortable living among Muslims than they do among European-derived peoples (Whites).

But then:

Covington was part of the Old Right. I have said all I want to say about him. The New Right has a very different approach to politics. Commemorating his life would excite the wrong sort of people. I have been consciously trying to deemphasize Old Right figures at Counter-Currents.

Let’s dissect:

Covington was part of the Old Right.

In other words, he was a serious White nationalist (whatever his faults…I’m not taking sides in the Covington/NA-Pierce-Williams feud).

I have said all I want to say about him. 

If only the same would apply to Evola, Devi, Guenon, Trump, etc.

The New Right has a very different approach to politics. 

Sure!  Pepe, Kek, Unite the Right, the Night of the Wrong Wives, the Pilleater Chronicles, TRS follies, Trump worship, Hermansson and Lewis, being wrong about virtually everything…a very different approach, indeed!

Commemorating his life would excite the wrong sort of people.

One can say the same about running Ash Donaldson articles.

 I have been consciously trying to deemphasize Old Right figures at Counter-Currents.

Instead, we’ll seen have an in-depth metapolitical analysis of Pepe. The only question – written by Mudshark Annie’s breakfast butler Costello or gun-toting, Slavic muscleman Jeelvy?

Spencer:

How many Boomers will write checks to this girl’s non-profit with notes attached that read:

 “If Millennials adopt socialism, they could destroy Medicare!”

Rewritten:

How many Boomers will write checks to Strom’s National Alliance with notes attached that read:

 “If Millennials adopt Spencer, they could destroy White nationalism!”

Anyone else notice how McCulloch is being featured at TOO frequently recently?

Anyone who doubts the predictions and analyses of Sallis does so at their peril.  I openly predicted a growing alliance between the HBD/race realist crowd and the Nordicists. Ironically for all involved, the wire-pullers behind the scenes are those that would, in their “genetic and cultural locus,” resemble Lukacs.  After all, Unz and Hart are “good Jews,” aren’t they guys…or should I say goys?

I’m also curious whether the “esthetic prop” includes things like this.

Not so much this, I think.

Quo Vadis pan-Europeanism?

Whither pan-Europeanism?

Anyone else notice that Amren is really pushing the work of McCulloch recently?  Once again Sallis is proven correct, as I predicted that the HBD-Nordicist alliance, with Jewish/Asian interests in the background, will always attempt to divide Europeans against each other. Der Movement is tiresomely predictable, and the HBDers most of all.

Comment from the threads:

Miss Annie  

Southern and Eastern Europeans are admixed with Asian and Arab blood due to wars and invasions during the Middle Ages onward. For example, Spain and Portugal were conquered by Muslims in the eight century. It took eight centuries to get rid of the Muslims, but they still left their legacy in its inhabitants which, in turn, slowed the country’s economic growth as well scientific and literary progress.

Evidence of Siberian/East Asian admixture in Northern Europe – which even the radically hardcore Nordicist Durocher now admits exists (although he claims it is “beneficial” to all humanity) – is of course excluded from such screeds.  

Note to White ethnics – leave Der Movement ASAP.  

Now, let’s look at input on this matter from everyone’s favorite dishonest commentator Silver: 

For some people, the racial and cultural differences become too significant to paper over as one moves from northwest Europe to southeast Europe. Although pan-European ideals hold some degree of personal appeal for me, I think it’s terribly unrealistic to expect most people to ever share them. Pan-Slavism had more going for it than pan-Europeanism, but even that never really got off the ground.

Slav is technically not a racial term, but I am not opposed to its use in this way. There is less racial variation among the people encompassed by the linguistic term Slav than there is in the racial term ‘white’, after all.

I have the impression that people tend to run away from Slav as a racial identifier in a bid to avoid association with the sorts of things that WNs have historically regarded as backward or inferior in Slavic cultures. This is especially so if they are coming at WN from a national socialist angle.

Despite the numerous factors in its favor, pan-Slavism would, I agree, have served as little more than a vehicle for the promotion of Russian interests, simply given the sheer weight of numbers on the Russian side.

It’s easy enough to proclaim European unity, especially in internet comments, but achieving actual unity in real world activism is rather more difficult.

A racial movement is not like other movements, in which membership is determined by the views a person claims to hold. Membership is decided by visual identification. No amount of pleading will ever persuade some people to accept those they visually identify as too racially divergent, nor do constant reassurances do much to assuage the doubts of those whose inclusion is questioned.

The history of racial activism has amply demonstrated, I think, that any real world get-together will always be infected by such hardliners who will invariably express their views and question other people’s inclusion, leading to bickering and self-doubt – at which point any presumed ‘unity’ goes out the window.

The only way I can see for a racial movement to surmount this problem is market itself as a cultural movement – to promote a European cultural identity – and trust that, essentially, only whites will ever really be attracted to it. Misgivings about visual identifications would not then be the barrier to unity they are in a strictly racial movement. The very racial hardliners that make unity so difficult in a racial movement would also likely self-select out of a cultural movement, which would also ease the way to unity.

If you knew nothing about Silver’s past history, these comments would seem somewhat reasonable, even though we may disagree with the recommendations he makes. Unfortunately for him, some of us have long memories, and statements from him like “Although pan-European ideals hold some degree of personal appeal for me…” rank among the most dishonest in the history of the Internet.  Silver has been a bitter enemy of pan-Europeanism for the past dozen years, and has been mocking, attacking, and deconstructing pan-Europeanism, often in the most mendacious and or infantile fashion, ever since he started infesting the Majority Rights comments threads in the mid-2000s.

Regarding his contention that “Membership is decided by visual identification…” that may hold for the McCulloch faction, but many – most? – people in Der Movement go by ancestry.  For example, most people in Der Movement would reject a “Nordish” Jew, but accept a darker, swart cockney “Paleo-Atlantid” Englishman.

With respect to the main point that White unity in Der Movement will always be undermined by Nordicist hardliners who reject and exclude other Whites and by the reaction of those other Whites to that exclusion, I agree. My brief period of thinking that compromise was possible was wrong-headed delusion on my part; I can admit when I have been wrong, and I was wrong in that case.  If that makes some question my judgment, so be it.  Unlike Greg Johnson and the other Quota Queens, I’m not going to hide my errors in an attempt to safeguard others’ opinions of me.

Silver’s recommendations are flawed.  Cultural nationalism does not solve the race problem to everyone’s satisfaction; even if it are mostly Whites who are attracted to it, it still leaves the door open for mass “cultural conversion” and assimilation, attacking the foundations of racial preservationism. One solution, and that which I have advocated, is adding (not replacing) cultural factors to racial ones, instead of replacing race with culture, or vice versa – thus merging the Salterian and Yockeyian viewpoints (note I use Salterian not McCullochian – ancestry not phenotype).

Pan-Slavism has been, as Silver admits, a failure and a vehicle for Russian domination. Further, it can exhibit the same problems as pan-Europeanism. One can imagine neo-Nordicist North Slav types, such as the Polako and Raciology specimens, attacking “racially admixed” South Slavs and making a distinction between “True Slavs” (Poles, Russians) and “False Slavs” (Serbians, Bulgarians). Same problem, smaller scale.

Personally, I’m a pessimist, and believe that Der Movement has already ruined a viable chance at victory.  But, we can still try. What I advocate is that the small minority of activists who are pan-Europeanists (true ones, not Nordicists trying to expand their “D’Nations” base) cut loose from Der Movement and go their own way.

Pan-Europeanists should have their own groups, groupuscules, blogs, websites, organizations, meetings, etc.  They should build a New MovementThey should be hardliners themselves – absolutely eschewing, excluding, and rejecting all Nordicists, fetishists, HBDers and other dividers.  Now, there are possible problems here.  There are so few true pan-Europeanists that there may not be a critical mass for success.  From experience, I know that Nordicists and others of similar ilk will always try to weasel their way into pan-European groups, to subvert the mission and undermine activities. Conversely, there will be pan-Europeanists who will impatiently attempt to expand their influence by accepting these other types or at least by making “alliances” with them. These dangers will exist.  But if Type II pan-Europeanists can perform better than the Type I Nutzis dancing through cemeteries with their swastika-soled boots, then they can  provide an attractive, viable alternative to the failed “movement” and to the hardline dividers to whom Silver refers. A more successful and sane movement can attract high quality people, establishing a positive feedback loop of steady and sound growth, while leaving the failed “movement” to degenerate under the weight of its own failures and insanity.

Do I think this will occur?  No. I think the swastika-soled boots crowd will dance off into the sunset, tripping over a tombstone, hurdling headlong into the grave. The majority of rank-and-file activists – including many who call themselves pan-European – are slavishly addicted to Der Movement and will not break ranks with it until it is too late to do any good.

We’re very likely doomed.  You can’t say I haven’t warned you.  You can’t say that I haven’t been (constantly) offering you an alternative.  It’s been your choice to (constantly) reject that alternative.


I’d like to make one more important point.  If pan-Europeanism is so crazy and unrealistic, then why is that that you have Nordicists – Pierce and Duke being two prominent examples – who always seem to find it necessary to pretend to be pan-European?  I alluded to one possible reason above, the desire to maximize followers and followers’ donations. But I see three more fundamental reasons for this.  

First, although authentic pan-Europeanists are relatively few, they have an influence out of proportion to their numbers.  Consider Yockey – you have the hardcore ethnonationalists of Counter-Currents always promoting Yockey and his work, and the Nordicist National Alliance is now selling Yockey’s masterpiece Imperium. And all these types have not hesitated to make use of my own work in the past.  Second, although there is a significant and very loud hardline Nordicist faction as well as Nordicist-oriented rank-and-file activists, there is also a significant, more “silent,” fraction of activists who are at least vaguely sympathetic to pan-Europeanism, and who would be a mobilizable force with better (and more genuine) leadership.  Third, the White masses already think excluding even the Jews is nutty; thus, excluding Southern and Eastern Europeans would strike many of them as completely unhinged. Many of the things that are acceptable within Der Movement’s “amen corner” would not “fly” in the broader society. I understand the difference between descriptive and prescriptive, but if the prescriptive is derived from the counter-productive obsessions of a particular hardline faction, then perhaps the prescription needs to be re-thought.

Therefore, perhaps the problem is not with pan-Europeanism, but instead derived from the fact that the American “movement” had its genesis in Nordicism and Anglocentrism, amplified by the obsessions with Hitler and Nazi race doctrine, and so these paradigms are too deeply embedded within the Old Movement to be effectively opposed from within. The same holds for Old Movement dogma outside America, with Anglocentrism being of course prominent in the Anglosphere “movement,” and Hitlerian thought being prominent among activists in “Germanic” Europe.  However, that all applies specifically to Der Movement – the Old Movement – not to society at large, and not to the nucleus of activists who could, under the right circumstances, initiate the development of a New Movement.

But, again, I’m pessimistic. 

Where Things Stand Indeed

Critiquing Strom’s piece.

Dr. Oliver made his assessment as part of a promotional film, After Fifty Years, for the National Youth Alliance — the predecessor of today’s National Alliance. The book the Youth Alliance chose to inspire young people was Francis Parker Yockey’s flawed but powerful Imperium — which is today still available from our Cosmotheist book store.

That’s a pleasant surprise, since Pierce was not selling Imperium back when I perused his book catalog.  He did sell books by McCulloch, as does your book store today. Don’t expect much support from so-called “White ethnics” by the way.  Why should they support you if you do not support them?  Why should they support people who despise them?  Good luck achieving your objectives while writing off a significant fraction of the American and world-wide European-derived population.

As we approach 2020, much has changed.

Has it?  Really?

Today, we have much more than Imperium.

Quantity wise, yes. Quality wise, hardly.

We have the great example of what Yockey, in that book, called The Hero of the Second World War — Adolf Hitler — and his titanic, even mythic, struggle — not yet finished, despite his martyrdom — against the Enemies of Life. We have that great example shining in front of us, and shining before the new generations of our Folk, more than ever now, as the tired myths promoted by our enemies deservedly and inevitably expire.

Sigh. Hitler worship is not going to get us anywhere.  Yes, I’m sympathetic to Saint Adolf’s struggles against “the Enemies of Life,” but we also need to be cognizant of the man’s majestic flaws.  Hitler stained his legacy by his propensity for hegemonic war against other European peoples.  An honest reading of history – including by authors like Irving who can hardly be labeled as biased against Hitler – will demonstrate that Hitler’s foreign policy was always aimed at territorial expansion to be achieved by dispossessing the Slavs.  His racial views were Nordicist and Germanocentric. I realize that none of that will trouble Der Movement, but the question goes back to whether you honestly want to achieve your ostensible objectives.  If you do, a more balanced appraisal of Saint Adolf would be helpful.

We have the life’s work of Revilo Oliver, the greatest of which he created after 1970 — after the age of 62 — when he renounced conservatism and Christianity, fully endorsed racial-nationalism, and promoted the National Alliance and National Socialism.

Oliver had some good points, but bad points as well – in the end, descending into Type I fetishism and dogma.

We have one of the greatest books of the 20th century, Which Way, Western Man? by the thinker and philosopher — and National Alliance member — William Gayley Simpson.

Another dogmatic and limited fetishist.

We have the life’s work of the founder of the National Alliance, Dr. William Luther Pierce, whose leadership had just barely begun in 1970. Dr. Pierce relentlessly wrote and organized and broadcast his works to the world until his death in 2002…

Ditto.

… — and Will Williams, the current chairman of the Alliance, has dedicated his life to not only preserving those works, but to vividly and repeatedly promoting them and making them available — again and again, week after week, year after year — to new generations of our people.

I’m not sure promoting all of those works is a positive.

Today, unlike in 1920 and in 1970, we have the ability to propagate our message to millions of our people via nationalvanguard.org and our other outlets. It’s been a long time since our pages were visited fewer than a million times per month. 

The Internet shall save us!  We’ve been hearing that tired old tune for about two decades now.  The Alt Right was real prominent on the Internet…where are they now?  How is the NA translating that online success to analog activism?

We — and other racial-nationalists, many of them awakened and inspired by our work — have been so successful in doing this that the Jewish power structure is desperate to shut down our media operations by any means, fair or foul. 

Are you prepared for that contingency?

The hundreds of thousands of young White people who read our words are making themselves known. They have been censored, delisted, banned, and shadowbanned again and again and again — yet, on Twitter alone, they still number in six figures by my estimate and are growing by the day — young people who know that Pierce and Rockwell and Simpson and Oliver and Hitler will be the saints of the future — and its architects. As one wag put it, the only question is: “How tall will their statues be?”

Oh dear god…can you believe this?  Can we stop with this “we will win in the end” optimism that is backed up by 100 years of complete failure HOW are you going to achieve that future?

It is true that the hundreds of thousands who read our words have mostly been free riders. Most have not joined us, or sent donations. Some are doubtlessly intimidated by what the Jews have done to ruin the lives of conscious Whites.

How about a bit more self-awareness as well?  It’s also that these “free riders” have absolute zero confidence in the “movement” and its affirmative action leadership.  They see humiliation after humiliation, defeat after defeat, infiltration after infiltration, endless failure after endless failure. Why should they get involved?  Has the NA in its more recent incarnation been free of this? “Smoky Mountain SS” (or whatever he called himself) delivering NA files to the enemy, and then the DeCourcy fiasco.  Even putting the best face on all of that, it shows questionable judgment regarding the types of people in the organization.  That’s the same type of bad judgment that led to the Hermansson infiltration and the Disqus exposures for other groups.  Can you blame prudent people for not trusting “movement leadership?”  I won’t even get into the Gliebe and Walker era with respect to the NA, etc. – but you have to realize that anyone looking into the group online – the vaunted Internet! – can see (and smell) all the dirty laundry. Thus, people may agree with your writings and broadcasts but they do not believe that anyone involved has the character and competence to be effective leaders. Are they wrong?  Then prove it.  

To those of you who are in that category, let me say two things: 1) There is great safety in numbers. When 250,000 people are supporting the National Alliance instead of just reading our words, we will be strong enough to be a social force that few will want to tangle with, legally or otherwise. 

How are you going to achieve this?  How are you going to straighten your own activist core out, win victories, and be palatable enough to attract 250,000 people? Or 25,000?  Or 2,500?  Or even 250?

Then the fence-sitters will leave the fence in droves — and a quarter million will be just the beginning. They won’t have enough corrupt US Attorneys or jails to make a much of a dent in our numbers or our morale then. In fact, by then, we might have more than a few prosecutors on our side, as well as leaders in every field of our society — when these people see that someone’s finally doing something. 

Ah, the key is – “someone’s finally doing something.”  The problem is that this is not happening. Ball in your court.  Clean up your own operation first.  Can your group go several years in a row without some new scandal, infighting, arrests, embarrassments, etc.?

2) It is, using cryptocurrency — which is not hard to use, quite possible to support our efforts with perfect anonymity. Even we won’t be able to know who you are unless you want us to.

For people to go to the trouble of doing that, they need to have the confidence to know it’ll be put to good use.  NONE of the “movement leaders” have presented us with evidence to build that confidence.

Another reason for the free riders is, I think, a psychological peculiarity of White people: Despite our great propensity for free thought and individual innovation, we are deeply law-abiding people who respect authority and hierarchy. We need psychological permission from a leader before engaging in warlike acts, or going against convention, or going against powerful interest groups. But once that psychological “permission” is obtained, no one is a stronger or better fighter — and conqueror — and destroyer of his enemies — than the awakened White man.

That leader has to be someone respected – not a laughingstock.  Not someone who has more skeletons in their closet than a graveyard.

We need to position ourselves as worthy — and actually be worthy — of leadership. We need to be excellent in everything we do. We need flawless logic and sterling character. We need authenticity and honor. We need the authority that comes from knowledge and truthfulness. We need the moral authority that comes from wisdom — and from right living that will be an example to all who see it. We need to be unforgiving — and totally dedicated to stamping out each and every threat to our people’s existence, forever. We need relentless effort that never tires, never quits. We need to engage the “authorities” of our society and publicly challenge their corruption. Most of all, we need to be strong —for no one and nothing in Nature respects the weak.

Very good.  Get started.  You haven’t even taken the first step yet.

As William Pierce said, the National Alliance needs to embody a society in the making — embody, with excellence, every function needed to assume societal leadership when the time is ripe.

Too bad he failed utterly in achieving any of that when he was alive.

Have we done that yet? No. 

Honesty.

Are we ready to take on such in-depth leadership of our society now? No. No one is. But when the hundreds of thousands see that we are serious about doing exactly that, our cause, in the words of Dr. Oliver, “will move forward with the gathering momentum of an avalanche.”

Doubtful. Wishful thinking.

No offense Kevin, but there’s nothing here.  Granted, of course, I don’t expect you to publicly reveal your plans in any detail (but given the reality of infiltration and System surveillance, it would probably be known anyway), but how about some discussion of strategic direction, at least in general terms?  Again, there’s nothing here, except the usual praise for Hitler, Pierce, and other Type Is, obvious statements on how you need more supporters, calls for more effective leadership, and of course the type of overly optimistic “fascist” thinking mocked by Roger Griffin, exemplified by:

…young people who know that Pierce and Rockwell and Simpson and Oliver and Hitler will be the saints of the future — and its architects. As one wag put it, the only question is: “How tall will their statues be?”

Great.  And how is that future going to be achieved?  How are ANY of the steps required to even make the initial moves to get to that future going to be achieved?  Again, I’m not asking for details, I’m not asking for secrets or anything that can be leveraged against your plans, but just the broadest outlines of a winning strategy.  

But there’s nothing.  There’s always nothing. This is my point.  In 1969 Oliver talked about 50 years of failure and here we are after 50 more years of failure and all we can point to is how popular certain websites are on the Internet.  And when those get deplatformed, then what?

This Strom piece is a gross disappointment. It’s not enough to say that “you should all support the NA.”  It’s not enough to dream about a future in which we debate how tall the William Pierce Memorial Statue should be.  And it’s not enough to talk about what is needed about quality leadership.  You have to DO.  And the first step in DOING – and what you can do right now with the limited resources you have – is to run a professional, sane, disciplined organization that does not provide SPLC gossip every few months via some embarrassment, infiltration, scandal, infighting, or other incident.  Start by stop making avoidable errors. You need to have a different attitude toward the people you hire, the people you accept as leading activists. Warm bodies willing to live on a mountaintop somewhere are not enough. The attitude of “well, these are the only people willing to come out in the middle of nowhere and work for us” is not helpful.  Maybe that’s the problem? It’s a self-perpetuating cycle where the low quality of the operation attracts low quality people who lower the quality of the organization even more.  And this all repels quality people. Quality people are not going to be attracted by some micro-group, living out in the woods somewhere, with employees whose major attribute is a willingness to endure those conditions. [Note – I’ve repeatedly written that Pierce’s move out of the DC area and into the WV mountains was a gross error].

The first step is to break this negative cycle.  It would be better to take one step back in order to move forward than continuing down a wrong path.  Better to have three quality people to start with than to have 30 defectives. Better to take the time to build an infrastructure that inspires confidence than to push forward under current conditions with an infrastructure that gives the impression (rightly or wrongly) that you’re trying to lead a worldwide revolutionary movement out of a trailer park. I’m not trying to be overly harsh, just brutally honest.  It’s not like the NA under Pierce wasn’t pulling in money – it was.  It was just all squandered.  It’s not the fault of the “free riders” that that happened.

It’s not enough to “be strong.” You have to look strong as well. You need to project strength, integrity, and competence in order to inspire the confidence required to attract the supporters you want.  People are not going to come to you just because you say you need them.  People will not sacrifice for a leader or for an organization that produces nothing but embarrassment and failure. Again, the very first step is relatively easy and eminently achievable – stop making mistakes, stop the scandals, stop the bad judgment, stop hiring questionable people, stop with the attitude that anyone is better than no one (is a negative number higher than zero?). You need to build a record that inspires confidence. You need to stop all the “facepalm” episodes.  At this point, an absence of embarrassment and disaster can count as a victory.  Be prudent.  Yes, I know – “no risk, no reward”- but this is not what we are talking about here.  Foolishness and bad judgment is not reasonable risk-taking. Endless failure is not a reward.

Rethink your strategy and tactics.

Frankennutzi

Building the ideal activist.

Imagine trying to build the ideal White racial nationalist out of the attributes of different individuals, akin to how the Frankenstein monster was built out of the body parts of different individuals. We can call this creation Frankennutzi.

We can mix the pan-Europeanism of Francis Parker Yockey, Oswald Mosley, Norman Lowell, and Ted Sallis; the futurism of Marinetti; the radicalism of William Pierce; the intelligence of Kevin Strom; the optics of Jared Taylor; the gravitas and seriousness of Revilo Oliver; the scientific understanding of Ted Sallis; the ethnological insights of Frank Salter; the prescience and judgment of Ted Sallis; the JQ attitude of MacDonald; and the sexual realism of Roger Devlin.

We can also consider the reverse.

Frankennutcase:

The humility of Richard Spencer; the tolerance of criticism, ethnonationalism, judgment, and traditionalism of Greg Johnson; the class, elegance, and sexual restraint of Donald Trump; the trustworthiness of Silver; the rampant masculinity of James O’Meara, the fiscal responsibility of David Duke; the maturity and optics of Anglin, TRS, and the cosplay crowd; the science of Greg Cochran and Richard Lynn; the Nordicism of Hans Gunther, William Pierce, and Richard McCulloch; the gravitas of Parrott and Heimbach; the racial science of Durocher; the seriousness of Roissy; the attitude toward Asians of Majority Rights; the intelligence of the current crop of Counter-Currents writers; the racial loyalty of John Derbyshire; the JQ attitude of Zman; and, well, you get the picture.

Donald Trump and Greg Johnson

A tale of two hypocrites.

Ted Cruz is an infinitely better man that the walking pile of feces Antifa Don Trump.

Since literally the first day of President Trump’s term, the federal government has done very little to prevent leftist political violence. Now, there are attacks on law enforcement officials, cheered on by a nationwide network. What did the DOJ think would happen after years of tolerating lawlessness?

A government is the monopoly of force within a territory. If President Trump’s DOJ refuses at least to investigate antifa in the wake of Van Spronson’s attack, it has ceded that monopoly. Already, President Trump has proven himself unable or unwilling to enforce America’s immigration laws. Now, he seems indifferent to attacks on public servants. Rather than tweeting, he should act. Tolerate political violence and it will escalate. This attack is surely a harbinger of more. If President Trump won’t defend immigration law enforcement officials, they won’t defend America.

The Trump administration has not installed a single mile of new wall in a previously fenceless part of the U.S.-Mexico border in the 30 months since President Trump assumed office, despite his campaign promise to construct a “big beautiful wall.”

Roissy is back online.  Is he going to be man enough to admit how majestically wrong he’s been about Fat Donnie?

This here may be one of the most hypocritical and dishonest things Johnson has ever written. Yes, principles are more important than people, so even though HBDers themselves expose Rushton as a fraud and a hypocrite, Johnson defends him because he was his “friend.”

Now let’s apply this analysis to the question of how White Nationalists should approach the Trump question. Consider, for instance, Trump’s tweets inviting an America-hating Muslim, Somali-born Representative Ilhan Omar, to go back to her home country.

The broad-minded approach is to use this controversy to talk about ideas. 

I agree. I talk about the idea that Der Movement is an utter failure, as exemplified by its repeated Man on White Horse humiliations, and Trump is an excellent example to use to illustrate this point to the rank-and file.

The small-minded approach is to use this controversy to talk about people. For instance, Richard Spencer appeared briefly on CNN. Instead of talking about the issues raised by this debate…

And so Johnson hypocritically uses the CNN controversy to once again personally bash Spencer.  Calm down Greg and think about someone else for a moment.

The basic Spencer code is to denigrate his natural base while preening as big-brained…

Unlike Johnson, of course.

 …and grandstanding to the Left. A comic genius described it as glitter bombing. Sadly, it doesn’t leave much time to talk about ideas.

Such as the idea of endlessly obsessing over Richard Spencer.

It does not occur to them that nobody need support Trump the man—in part or in toto—to use him as an occasion to defend good ideas and attack bad ones.

Attacking bad ideas – like the Man on White Horse Syndrome or Der Movement’s ethnic affirmative action policy, both of which are relevant to the author of the piece I am now critiquing.

And if Trump is only an occasion to enter the battle of ideas, then it does not matter if he means what he says, or whether he will follow through with his proposals. Obviously, we’d like Trump to be a sincere and effective advocate for pro-white policies. 

But if that is our constituency, then our movement has no future.

It doesn’t have a future.

Those who are playing a long game…

Snug in their hobbit hole.

…recognize that the nearly 60 million white Americans who voted for Donald Trump are the natural constituency for National Populism in America. The most important thing is to uphold the right principles and communicate them to the National Populist electorate that Trump has created and is increasingly disappointing and frustrating. When Trump is gone, it is our job to lead them. 

These guys can’t even lead a tiny “movement” but they will lead “nearly 60 million white Americans” to victory.

But we cannot lead them if we do not connect with them. And we cannot connect with them if we go out of our way to alienate them.

Yes, you will connect with them, and not alienate them, by running hyper-Nordicist screeds by the likes of Ash Donaldson, combined with other esoteric content of Counter-Currents. I thought Counter-Currents was aimed at the “high-IQ crowd” and not to “the nearly 60 million white Americans who voted for Donald Trump?”  

As far as White Nationalists were concerned, this was never just about Trump. It was always about advancing our ideas. 

Trump was always just an occasion for White Nationalists to enter the political debate. 

And they didn’t do it. Instead, they engaged in MAGA Pepe Kek hysteria, did Unite the Right, engaged in catty feuds, panhandled for “D’Nations,” and did navel-gazing podcasts.

He smashed the Republican gentleman’s agreement never to talk about whether global trade and non-white immigration are good for America. It was truly magnificent.

Yes, talk about “big hands” combined with total ignorance during debates was truly magnificent.

Trump asked the right questions…

Such as “where is the nearest MacDonald’s?”

…but at best, his answers were half-measures, and half-implemented half-measures are not the solutions Americans need. They are not what his electorate is increasingly clamoring for. But that too is an opportunity for us.

An opportunity to endorse Andy Eggroll. No, wait, Princess Tulsi Coconut, no wait….

I think some of the spoiled child reactions to Trump’s failures and betrayals come from people who somehow convinced themselves that Trump really was going to save America. 

” people who somehow convinced themselves that Trump really was going to save America” – like Greg Johnson, Richard Spencer, Richard McCulloch, Jared Taylor, Kevin MacDonald, and Roissy.

But that was never realistic. He was one man, advocating confused civic nationalist half-measures against the whole media and political establishment. Trump was never going to save America. 

And, again, the post linked here contains some of Johnson’s hysterical Man on White Horse Syndrome comments about Trump two-to-three years ago. 

That was always our job. It still is.

Pure delusion. 

Trump is not the last chance for National Populism in America. 

Tell that to Amren and The Occidental Observer.

He is just the beginning. He was not the last chance for white America. 

Why didn’t Johnson tell that to Taylor and MacDonald back in 2016?  20-20 hindsight three years too late?

He was the system’s last chance to preserve itself in the face of massive demographic change. When Trump is no longer President, our mantra must be “Trumpism has not failed. Trumpism has never been tried.” 

Boy, that’s inspiring!

Only then we will start calling it National Populism, and if we play the long game, we will have created a whole new political movement to secure its triumph.

These guys can’t even hold a small meeting without it being infiltrated but they’re going to build the grand political movement that will secure for us our – inevitable of course! – triumph.  National Populism –  brought to you by preening elitists who sniff about “Kali Yuga” and Guenon.

The bad news is that Trump turned out to be better at campaigning than governing. The good news is that he will soon go back on the campaign trail, and if “Send her back” is any indication, it’s going to be another magnificent opportunity to move the national mind in our direction. 

Like the grand success of 2016, which has led America to be farther to the left, and more anti-WN, than ever before.

When that time comes, I hope our best propagandists will not sit it out, sulking in their tents like Achilles.

Or sulking like male meeting attendees who failed in their flirting with Pilleater.

If we are going to effectively advance our ideas, we cannot get distracted by the politics of personality…

Including hatred of Spencer?

…including our own personal issues. 

Projection?

We must never lose sight of our ultimate aim, which is a homeland for whites in North America.

A snug hobbit hole for every White American!  A caliper for every skull!

Johnson’s essay is one part hypocrisy and two parts dishonesty.

Hypocrisy: We must concentrate on ideas, not people – except of course when we defend the likes of Rushton out of friendship and constantly attack Richard Spencer out of some obsessive animus. Never mind that when someone too sharply criticizes his own ideas at his blog, the response is “this will be your last comment here.”

Dishonesty: First, by ignoring the fact that Johnson and his buddies were indeed engaging in God Emperor Pepe MAGA Kek hysteria about Trump and, more importantly, second, that pointed criticism of Trump as a fraud does not have to be a “small-minded” interest in “people not ideas,” but rather a principled argument against the endlessly repeated Man on White Horse Syndrome error, and also an argument that the same “movement” that makes that (obvious) mistake over and over again is unfit to be a vehicle for White preservationism.

1969: America lands men on the moon

2019: We have this.  Racial harmony!

See this. While I have some degree of skepticism toward such tests (can they detect psychopaths? Can someone be trained to defeat them?) And while they are not 100% accurate, something is better than nothing, and perhaps such tests can be one component (not the whole thing!) of a real “extreme vetting” program, at least for more important positions. One wonders also if “random screening” should be done even after acceptance, since people who may originally be sincere, can “turn” later.  Also, in the case of a real infiltrator, if they somehow bypassed the test on the first go around, where they may have been prepared for it, on a second, unexpected, random screening, they may be caught.  The screening itself needs to be done by different people and double-checked – what if the screener is an infiltrator as well?

Do Not Legitimize or Normalize Genocide

Promoting White genocide in the unlikeliest of places – or is it really unlikely?

Considering Strom’s piece about race-mixing, an important point is that each case of race-mixing, by its very existence and acceptance, is a form of legitimization and normalization of the practice, which Strom rightfully equates with the promotion of White genocide.

And acceptance there certainly is – not only by the System, the Society at large, but by important factions of Der Movement itself.  Consider Derbyshire. He is not only an enthusiastic race-mixer, but has written for VDARE defending the practice and attacking its critics in scurrilous terms – you see, according to him, all you “race purists” out there are “slightly nuts.”  Very well.  Is he is shunned by Der Movement?  Hardly!  Instead, he is an honored guest and prime speaker at America’s leading racialist “White advocacy” conference – American Renaissance.  So, if you can be a participant in, and defender of, race-mixing involving Whites, and still be one of the leading lights of Alt Right-style racial activism, then what consequences are there for race-mixing in Der Movement?  We also have leading Alt Righters who have dated Asians, with one commentator asserting that such relationships are a “rite of passage” for the Alt Right.

That’s certainly some heavy-duty legitimization and normalization, isn’t it?  But then, if we consider the HBD strain behind all these people, then the whole idea of “White racists being OK with race-mixing” is not so unlikely, not so surprising, after all.  Isn’t Sailer’s Jeurasian mongrel race idea the ultimate endgame for HBD anyway?

Derbyshire embraced; critics of Derbyshire scorned.  White genocide embraced; opponents of White genocide rejected. Jeurasianism embraced; White preservationism ignored.

Meanwhile, in Merry Old England… as TOO would say: Cue the Vikings.  Not so much any more, eh?

Question – if “White advocates” look with dismay at the racial degeneration of the “Royal Family,” why are they accepting of Derbyshire?  What is it?  The unprincipled exception due to personal friendship?  The fact that “the Derb” is “one of the boys” and those ties are stronger than the extinction of Derbyshire’s English lineage?  That the Alt Wrong is so hysterically pro-Asian that they’ll make an exception in that case?  Expediency – the think that Derbyshire’s shallow and boring drivel is somehow “useful” for “the cause” and so they look the other way regarding his personal failings?  Or all of these combined?  Or something else entirely?

According to Taylor, Johnson, and McCulloch we are winning!  So much winning!  I’ve been involved with “this thing of ours” since the mid-90s, and I can tell you that things have never been worse. Any honest person will tell you that the facts-on-the-ground reality is that racialism in America is at an all-time low.  This after all the promise of 2016’s foray into right-wing populism. But, hey, keep on sending in those “D’Nations” so that your fearless leaders can travel internationally (that is, when they aren’t banned from doing so) and go to the movies, while enjoying dat dere Blue State lifestyle. After all, we got to keep them well-stocked in comfy lawn chairs!
