More Sweaty Fetishism Debunked

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

The Viking travels to the New World are well documented, and should be acknowledged and celebrated.  However, after that, the essay goes off the rails in typically demented “movement” fashion.

Nordic Amerindians.  Nordic Polynesians.  Nordics from Atlantis.  Nordic Martians.  Nordics from the Andromeda Galaxy.

By the way, blond hair in Pacific Islanders is due to a native gene variant that differs from that of Europeans, and thus once again “movement” fantasies are disproved by objective scientific facts.

The common occurrence of blond hair among the dark-skinned indigenous people of the Solomon Islands is due to a homegrown genetic variant distinct from the gene that leads to blond hair in Europeans, according to a new study from the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Hmmm…it seems that refined French “intellectuals” are no better than the American “burgers” they so despise.

Summary: Der Movement Inc. LIES to you about race and racial history, it lies over and over again.  As to the excuse “it’s just ignorance, not dishonesty,” I respond that the facts about Polynesian hair color genetics can be found with about 10 seconds of online searching; instead AltRight.com runs an article quoting some crazed babbling from 1953.

They are fundamentally dishonest.

Der Movement’s Dangerous “Minds”

SLC News.

In an otherwise fine book review and analysis by Johnson, we find two disturbing bits.

First:

This is why I don’t regard Alexander Dugin and Richard Spencer as contributing anything to White Nationalism, which is the advocacy of ethnic self-determination for all white peoples. 

That’s an incredibly misleading, actually mendacious, description of what White Nationalism is, essentially equating White Nationalism as the sum of all the various intra-White ethnonationalisms added together.  Instead, what most honest people in the “movement” consider by “White Nationalism” is exactly what the term literally implies – a form of nationalism centered on race rather than ethnicity; the ORION principle: Our Race Is Our Nation.  Thus, for White Nationalists, the ultimate form of nationhood, and the highest form of national allegiance, is to the race as a whole; individual ethnic allegiances are secondary.  In this sense, White Nationalism is the antithesis of narrow ethnonationalism.

Instead, they are simply apologists for Russian imperial revanchism. 

Dugin yes.  But Spencer?  That’s going too far.  By the way, who has it been promoting the work of Dugin over the years?  All the Type Is out there, all the “traditionalists,: certainly not me.

Spencer regards ethnonationalism as “petty”….

He’s right about that. 

…siding with the UK against Scottish independence, the EU against Brexit, and Spain against Catalan independence. 

I disagree with Spencer here and go along with Yockey: In an Imperium there can be whatever local autonomy people wish, and if Scots and Catalans (or whoever) want such autonomy, fine, as long as all these regions and micro-nations are confederated into the Imperium.

But although he opposes the UK leaving the EU, he opposes Ukraine joining it. He praises the EU as a transnational, imperial organization — but not NATO. 

Spencer can explain his UK vs. Ukraine views himself.  The EU in principle is not a bad idea; its execution is globalist and anti-White, so I oppose it.

Clearly, he is more interested in shilling for Russian geopolitical interests than in setting forth a coherent moral and political framework for white survival.

Is White survival instead advanced by setting forth coherent moral and political frameworks of White nations ethnically cleansing each other?

Then we have this:

Beiner then quotes Spencer denouncing “fucking middle class” values and proclaiming “I love empire, I love power, I love achievement.” We even learn from a Jewish female reporter that Spencer will sometimes “get a boner” from reading about Napoleon.

If any of that is true, what can I say that I haven’t said before?  All you Type I Nutzis and heavy breathing fetishists out there are responsible for that, you are the ones who enable the affirmative action program.  You made your bed so now lie in it (albeit not along with Spencer reading about Napoleon).

Fundamental Basics of Salterism

Truth so basic and obvious that only politically motivated mendacious anti-Whiters would try to “refute” it.

Previously, I wrote a lengthy “Defense of Salterism” against particularly mendacious and/or retarded “critiques” of the EGI concept.

This post will be more fundamental: essentially to demonstrate that “Salterism” is based on four basic principles, all of which are not only true, but obviously true, even trivially true. While science should be defined by skepticism and rigorous hypothesis testing (which is why HBD is not science), it is also true that at some point, certain facts and ideas have been so well established that one can accept them as, to the extent we can perceive them, reality.  Although one can of course keep an open mind toward future findings in astronomy, planetary geography, etc. it is still reasonable to accept that the Earth revolves around the Sun, and not vice versa, and that the Earth is essentially spherical and definitely not flat or “Frisbee-shaped.” Arguing about such established facts does not advance science or human progress. Salterism is based on principles which begin to approach that of “the Earth revolves around the Sun,” which should tell you something about the (political) motivations of those who deny such obvious facts and established ideas.  Thus:

1. Population groups differ genetically; there are differences of genetic kinship between groups (with some groups being more or less similar or distant than others).  This is true; there isn’t the slightest doubt on this obvious fact, apart from the mendacious or the mad.

2. On average, members of groups are more genetically similar to their group than to members of other groups. I say “on average” because this depends on how similar the two groups are.  For very dissimilar groups, like the major continental population groups (races), the greater within group similarity is virtually always true, for more closely related groups (say, Germans vs. French) there will be some overlap, but even there, on average, it holds.  In summary; with sufficient markers, when considering the major population groups, there is always greater intragroup vs. intergroup genetic similarity.

3. From a pure fitness standpoint, identical by state is the same as identical by descent; identical = identical.  For ethnies, identical by state vs. identical by descent is sort of a distinction without difference – or a difference without distinction – because in that case identical by state is identical by (relatively) distant descent (when talking about the distinctive genome). This is obviously – basically, trivially – true, although I guess you can always find politically motivated con artists who claim that identical does not mean identical, that a DNA sequence of GCTAGG is not the same as GCTAGG.

4. Genetic continuity (and expansion) is adaptive.  This is basic biology, the basic definition of biological fitness.  This is at the core of the Darwinian (or Neo-Darwinian) perspective.  That’s what life is about.

The basics of Salterism can be boiled down to one sentence:

“True enough, it is an evolutionarily better strategy to spend beneficial behavior towards fellow ethnics than towards outsiders, because you are more closely related to them.”

Who wrote that?  Frank Salter?  Ted Sallis?  No.  It was written by liberal academic Ingo Brigandt, a critic of the idea of ethnic nepotism.  You may be confused: why would someone critical of ethnic nepotism write an admission of the adaptive value of ethnocentric behavior?  You see (to make a long story short), the Brigandt types promote the bizarre idea that if a specific behavior could not, and therefore did not, “evolve,” then actualizing that behavior is impossible. So, by analogy, since humans did not evolve with computers, obviously you are not reading this post on your computer screen.  Impossible!  The riposte to that would be to argue that evolutionarily novel behaviors, such as computer use, are possible courtesy of evolved general behavioral and cognitive suites, such as intelligence and problem solving.  Indeed.  Therefore, even IF ethnocentrism is not an evolved behavioral trait, humans can (and do!) behave in an ethnocentric manner if they perceive that to do so is to their advantage.  Why would they perceive that advantage?  See the four points listed above.  Now, I would argue that ethnocentrism could and did evolve (the amygdala response to racially alien faces is evidence for this, and see the next link below), but even if it is not an “evolved behavior” it can still occur, and be adaptive, derived from more general behavioral and cognitive mechanisms, which, we all agree, are evolved. 


You may argue that Brigandt talked about the “costs and benefits” of ethnocentric behavior evolving, but those calculations have been done (the aforementioned link), and support the dominance of ethnocentrism over alternative competing behaviors; further, the “laboratory of human reality” demonstrates ethnocentric behavior being a longstanding reality of the human experience, and one cannot help but notice that ethnocentric groups like Jews and Chinese are doing very well for themselves, with the Jews surviving as a group through all sorts of tribulations (if Brigandt wants to argue that those tribulations are due to the Jews’ ethnocentric behavior itself, let him do so, which would admit that ethnocentric behavior has been evolutionarily stable in that ethny over a period of many centuries).

Now, why do these types promote anti-Salterian memes that are, to an objective viewpoint, patently absurd?  Because their objections are, in my opinion, not objective but subjective.

Thus:

1. If Salterism is correct, then Whites (*) have the absolute right to pursue ethnocentrism in pursuit of their adaptive fitness.

2. If Whites behave in an ethnocentric manner, then “Western” multiculturalism will collapse.

3. They do not want multiculturalism to collapse; therefore, Salterism must be incorrect and refuted.

You, dear reader, are under no obligation to accept that con game.


That Whites are so detached from any perception of their own self-interest that the Salterian analysis is even necessary – do you really need to be told and taught something so trivially true that the genetic continuity of your group is adaptive? – is disturbing.  That Whites actually try to delegitimize these obvious facts, or buy into the ethnically self-interested critiques of non-Whites, does nothing but confirm the objective worthlessness of the White race from the standpoint if adaptive fitness.  Time to wake up, guys (or should that be goys).

In addition, there has also been some controversy over the term “race” with the politically-motivated race-deniers picking apart some of the (in some cases, admittedly deficient) definitions put forth by some on the Right.  I would propose that:

A race is a population group consisting of smaller population groups and the individuals therein that are, on average and in toto, more similar to each other with respect to genotype and phenotype than to other groups; members of a race tend to share more most recent common ancestors with each other than with members of other races, and racial groups tend to be indigenous to particular continents or sub-continents in which they came into being (“ethnogenesis”).

*This holds for all groups, but for some strange reason ethnocentrism becomes a problem only when Whites practice it.

Amren, Scot Peterson, and The Mangan Syndrome

Another “movement” error.

The Mangan Syndrome, named after Muscleman Mangan (The King of Whey) can be defined thus: When someone, particular in some precinct of Der Movement, publicly makes a factually incorrect statement with an attitude of complete smug self-assurance. Typically, the comment is not only factually incorrect but obviously so, something that could be identified as incorrect (or at best highly misleading) given a few minutes (or seconds) of online research (or simple reading comprehension).

The classic example was Mangans’s assertion that “most Italian-Americans are of Northern Italian ancestry.”  Another example from Der Movement is one I criticized here.

The latest example of this is Amren’s assertion that Florida (ex) deputy Scot Peterson is Black.

This is Scot Peterson.  Not very Negro.

Note that Amren post has to be from an archived source since they apparently removed the original once they found out they were wrong (days later) and, insofar as I know, they never admitted, much less apologized for, the error.

Now, I’m sure heavy breathing Type I’s will say “what’s the big deal?”

It is the same principle as to why people are told to make sure there are no spelling or grammar mistakes in their resume/CV/job application, college application essay, grant submission, etc.  If you are so sloppy, and have such a lack of attention to detail, in the small things, that is a warning that you’ll do the same for the big things.  If you can’t be trusted to get it right, find out the correct answer, and do your research for the small things, the same is likely for the big things.  If you cannot be trusted on the small things, why should anyone trust you on anything more important?

So, the same Amren that tells us that that a deputy named “Scot Peterson” is “Black” (How likely is it that a deputy named “Scot Peterson” is a Negro?  Didn’t any of these geniuses have enough sense to double check to make sure?  Apparently not.) based on this picture (obviously a fuzzy photo of a tanned White man) is the same Amren that peddles the pseudoscience of the charlatan Richard Lynn or which spreads misleading nonsense about Ancient Egypt.  

And the System uses these errors to smear ALL racialists and ALL nationalists as being “wrong” and “peddling pseudoscience” and “so blinded by hate that they can’t get their facts straight.”  

At some point, if there is never any accountability, how will the “movement” ever get on track?  Are these people even capable of admitting they are wrong?  Are they capable of admitting errors?  Can you trust anyone who makes such egregious mistakes and then doesn’t have the good grace, the character, to admit it?

And this is not specifically to “pick on” Amren, which has done, and continues to do, some good work, but it is illustrative of Der Movement as a whole.  It is also related to Der Movement’s solipsism, what I call The Lathe of Heaven Syndrome (many syndromes in Der Defective Movement – The Man on White Horse Syndrome being another), in which Type I activists believe that their very thoughts, their bombastic pronouncements, create reality. Things are because Der Movement says they are!  Ancient Egyptians were akin to Europeans – nay they were Nordics! – simply because Der Movement says so, the actual existing genetic evidence to the contrary be damned.

Once you lose people’s trust with sloppy errors and blatant falsehoods it will be very difficult, sometimes impossible, to gain it back.

Better not to make these errors to begin with.  And if an affirmative action leadership cannot refrain from error, then Der Movement had better rethink its quota system.

Race Fraud

Marital crypsis.

Who is the victim?  The “racist” father – the one his scum daughter wants to portray as a villain.  Look, the man thought he was marrying, living with, and procreating with a woman he perceived as White, was misled (by her) to think as her being White, while she was actually a light-skinned (mixed race) “African-American.”  The man had one life to live, he married and reproduced with (insofar as I know) one woman, and he wasted his life, and wasted his genetics, on an indescribably evil race fraud.  Evil?  Yes.  If she knew her husband was an anti-Black racist, how could she fool the man, in the most intimate manner possible, for their entire married lives?  It’s at least as bad as cuckoldry, passing off another man’s child as his own.  She was passing off someone else’s racial identity for her own, and passed off the offspring of an inter-racial marriage to the husband as if they were a product of an intra-racial marriage.

Evil.  Disgusting. Horrific.

However, the father can’t get off without criticism.  He was a victim, but was also victimized by his own stupidity.  I cannot image marrying someone without having a very clear idea of their ancestry and without meeting their family (or even seeing pictures of said family).  The fraud looked, as Grant said about Argentinians, “suspiciously swarthy,” so the man should have looked more deeply into the genepool he was going to dive into.

But, even with that, he’s clearly the victim in this story – defrauded into destroying his pre-existing genetic lineage, foregone parental kinship, lost European progeny.

If you allegedly “love” and “care for” your life partner, how could you willfully defraud them in such a callous manner?

They Wuz Dumb II: More Movement Misinformation about Race

Lies or stupidity – it’s anyone’s guess.

In all cases below, emphasis added.

Read this. After rehashing the points I made about Cheddar Man several days ago, we then get comments about Egyptians, ancient and modern, that are either mendacity or reflective of a problem with reading comprehension.

Today’s Egyptians have some sub-Saharan alleles, but this mixing appears to have begun only about 700 years ago.

The linked Nature article concerning that issue clearly states that the events of 700 years ago were in addition to the significant sub-Saharan ancestry that existed before:

The researchers say that there was probably a pulse of sub-Saharan African DNA into Egypt roughly 700 years ago. The mixing of ancient Egyptians and Africans from further south means that modern Egyptians can trace 8% more of their ancestry to sub-Saharan Africans than can the mummies from Abusir el-Meleq. 

Got it?  That’s 8% more than what was there before, not 8% suddenly appearing 700 years ago on a background of 0%.

See this.

The original paper:

…reveals that the three ancient Egyptians differ from modern Egyptians by a relatively larger Near Eastern genetic component, in particular a component found in Neolithic Levantine ancient…Finally, we used two methods to estimate the fractions of sub-Saharan African ancestry in ancient and modern Egyptians. Both qpAdm35 and the f4-ratio test39 reveal that modern Egyptians inherit 8% more ancestry from African ancestors than the three ancient Egyptians do, which is also consistent with the ADMIXTURE results discussed above. Absolute estimates of African ancestry using these two methods in the three ancient individuals range from 6 to 15%, and in the modern samples from 14 to 21% depending on method and choice of reference population

Got it? Moderns have ~8% more than the ancients, but the ancients may have been as high as 15%, with a floor of 6%.

So, what is the take home point?  It is this: Der Movement, and particularly its HBD wing, LIES about race, LIES about population genetics, and LIES about racial history. Or, if you want to be more generous, they are not lying, but they are simply sincerely stupid, unable to read clear English, so they spread their wrong-headed misinformation around the Internet.

Thanks a lot for giving the Left ammunition to accuse racial activists of peddling pseudoscience about race. But, then, the HBDers do that a lot, don’t they?  I don’t call them the Alt Wrong for nothing.

By the way, did you catch this from the original paper: “depending on method and choice of reference population.”

Sound familiar?  Yes, it does.

Facts on race = EGI Notes

Falsehoods on race = Der Movement, Inc.

Sallis Right Again: Its the Dolt Right

How the Alt Right (Dolt Right) defames racial nationalism.

Long time readers of this blog are aware that one of my major warnings against the Alt Right is that by promoting themselves as encompassing the totality of racial nationalism, the Alt Right will taint the entire “movement” with their stupidity and mendacity.  Thus, whatever the Alt Right says and does will be construed as representing and reflecting all racial nationalists, even those of us who despise and oppose the Alt Right fad.

Read this, emphasis added:

Eli was in his mid-20s, from a middle-class suburban home, and he had led an unremarkable life, up until the Charlottesville rally launched him forward within the ranks of the loosely organized white-nationalist movement. He rose from a self-described “anonymous Twitter troll” to head of one of the largest groups in the so-called alt-right.

“I came to the realization around the inauguration that we must take this from an online activist movement to a real-life activist movement,” he told me. “I decided that was my calling.”

After a few phone calls, Eli agreed to give me an on-camera interview, at Richard Spencer’s apartment in Alexandria, Va. Spencer, 39, plays the big brother to many teenagers and 20-somethings drawn to the alt-right, and his one-bedroom apartment has become a frat house for white nationalists passing through the D.C. area. When I was there, a steady stream of young men (and an occasional woman) flowed in and out. Although Eli lives less than an hour away, he often crashes there on late nights spent drinking and planning the next event. He proudly told me he always gets the couch, while others sleep on the floor.

And then all the “blah, blah” about the military record.  And so the mainstream conclusion based on this latest Alt Right fiasco is, emphasis added:

The movement itself also relies on falsehoods. It includes Holocaust deniers and pseudo-intellectuals who spout unsubstantiated theories about the science behind racial difference. In order to reach mainstream Americans, white supremacists have learned to cloak their racism in disorienting terms like “white identity politics.”

Thanks a lot, you goddamn idiots.  

The mainstream’s deductive reasoning:

Premise (that you promote): The Alt Right IS White racial nationalism

Premise (based on facts): The Alt Right are a bunch of stupid, lying, incompetent, panhandling, drunken lulzers

Conclusion: White racial nationalism as a whole is composed of stupid, lying, incompetent, panhandling, drunken lulzers

Or:

Premise (that you promote): The Alt Right IS White racial nationalism

Premise: The Alt Right is based on lies, is full of liars, and peddles HBD pseudoscience

Conclusion: ALL the science asserted by White racial nationalists is pseudoscience

In other words, because Alt Righters are drunken liars, EGI is pseudoscience.

Irrational on the part of the mainstream? Perhaps?  But isn’t it YOU, dear Alt Righters, who preach that people – the “normies” – are inherently irrational, so that instead of constantly burying them with logic and rational scientific facts, we need to project strength and fine character to appeal to their irrational instincts?

How’s that working out for you?  The rest of us know how it is working out for us.  Exactly as I warned, the Alt Right is wrecking racial nationalism.

Time for another half-drunk Alt Right podcast.  Cue the Beavis-and-Buttthead sniggering.

And some advice: If you are a bunch of babbling imbeciles who can’t get your stories straight in the midst of your alcoholic haze, then please don’t give interviews to the mainstream media. Thank you.
