Odds and Ends: Behold the Female

And other items.

Behold the female:

Do Chinese women menstruate?  Seriously though, given the enormous genetic distance between Europeans and East Asians (note to Derbyshire), what makes these authors believe that their findings are generalizable?

Men do breast cancer research. Women help the cause in the only manner they are capable.

Resigns in disgrace.  Blames “revenge porn.”  Agency, where art thou?

Evolved to manipulate the male sex drive?  What stage in their cycle were those women flashing their breasts during the World Series? Probably much pre-menopausal female behavior can be ascribed to hormonal fluctuations rather than to rational thinking.

Read this.  Works with a virus.  Refused the vaccination.  Can’t handle a mouse without accidentally injecting herself with the virus.  Can’t remember what strain of virus she was using for the experiments.  I think milady should just stick (no pun intended) to things she can handle – like flashing breasts – and leave the lab work to fully evolved humans (men).

The evil of the XX chromosomes strikes again.  Just like the Carter case.  My explanation? Envy. Just as non-Whites hate, and want to destroy, Whites because of racial envy over inherent White superiority in all things (except for adaptive fitness), so do women hate, and want to destroy, men because of inherent male superiority in all things (except the ability to control sexual urges).  Just like non-Whites leverage White guilt and pathological altruism to exact their racial revenge, so do women leverage their sexuality to destroy men. They do so purposely and with malice aforethought. 

Related to the female issue:

Three take home points from Durocher:

First, he deals with issues that can be construed to be critical of women and the role women play in the West’s decline.  Any snide tweets from Sir Gaslight about this?

Second, his comment about the rise of homosexuals in Der Movement having at least partially to do with their lack of having nagging women around “enforcing social norms” is consistent with my assertion that those same homosexuals have no right to lecture heterosexual men about the place of women in racial activism and in the broader society. Not having to deal with the female in any sort of meaningful personal manner, the homosexual contingent’s input is as “useful” as are the racial comments of (high trust no doubt) SJW Whites who live in all-White areas but who sing the praises of racial diversity (for the rest of us).  By the way, the rise of the homosexual contingent is also due to the intense self-promoting networking their clique has been doing for the past 15-20 years, and their cynically instrumental promotion of certain “movement” dogmas in order to gain increased influence over the great unwashed of rank-and-file activists and over naive (heterosexual) “activist leaders.”

Third, Durocher’s despicable hypocrisy is on display once again when he writes about the “truth hurting” when it comes to biological group differences. This is a guy who only wrote about East Asian admixture in Northern Europe after weeks of ridicule from EGI Notes and then engaged in bizarre hand-waving to convince his readers that said admixture (the extent of which he understated, by the way) is of “great benefit to all humanity.” 

Other items:

Consider Judge Napolitano – that puff-haired Levantine wop whose face looks like it was formed by a spastic child jamming its fingers into a ball of putty. If we assume that Arabic Andy is a man of the Right, we observe a difference between Left and Right.  If a leftist commentator were to (rarely) criticize a liberal Democrat politician, particularly a President, they would criticize from the Left, they would accuse the individual in question of being insufficiently liberal, insufficiently progressive. They would never adopt rightist talking points to attack someone ostensibly on their side.  Rightists on the other hand routinely adopt leftist talking points to publicly criticize rightist political figures. Trump can, and should, be criticized from the Right; instead, “conservative” commentators critique Trump in exactly the same manner as their leftist counterparts. Is it any wonder that the Left always wins?  Of course, in this case, there have been suggestions that Napolitano’s constant sniping at Trump is due to his dago disgruntlement over being passed over for a judicial appointment.  If true, that’s one graceless guinea.

At this point, Der Movement has become a ludicrous caricature of itself.  Is there anyone or anything Swedish that Der Movement is not going to praise, identify with, worship, and be pathologically reticent to criticize in the slightest manner?  Thunberg is an obnoxious little turd, an arrogant flat-faced Ladogan over-flowing with self-satisfied SJW moral posturing, and Der Movement just can’t get enough of her. Forget about jumping the shark, Der Movement has jumped both Moby Dick and the Pequod, and is now hurtling over the Pacific Ocean. All we need now is for Durocher to write an essay describing how Patrik Hermansson is of great benefit to all humanity.  What about Friberg though?  Is that a Swede too far?

Counter-Comments comment about the good and great Greta:

Has anybody besides me noticed that she is supposedly 16 years old and yet looks like she has not gone through puberty yet? She looks like she is 11 or 12 at most.

Come now, Jud, don’t you know that those low-hormone k-selected Northeast Asians mature slowly?

Another shallow, superficial Counter-Currents post, the comments for which are better than the post itself. To reduce redundancy: Another Counter-Currents post.

Is this a reference to Pilleater’s revelations about drug use by certain parties at certain racialist meetings, combined with the drunken podcasts from DC-area loft apartments?

I’ll agree that such cliques are destructive.  Other ones are as well.  Pilleater commented on those also.

Odds and Ends, 10/28/19

Several issues.

About the MX missile.  I don’t know what’s worse there – the stupidity of Ronnie Raygun and Caspar Jewberger wanting to have the MX regardless of the utility of the basing scheme, Jimmy Carter’s liberal naivete, or the pure selfishness of those Utah ranchers (societal consensus, eh?) putting their personal comfort and economic interests ahead of the security of their nation. As far the first goes, I remember “dense pack” (accurately termed by some wags at that time as “dunce pack”- a completely stupid gamble which, if the underlying premise was wrong, would have led to the entire MX force being destroyed by a small surgical Soviet strike). Jimmy Carter was always a pathetic embarrassment, and I guess that high trust northern hunter gatherers with their jokes about “commodes” would sell out their nation for another head of cattle.  Winners one and all no doubt. The best option would have been the Scowcroft plan, minus the stupidity of “arms control.”  The Midgetman as a mobile deterrent force was a good idea, and could have constituted the bulk of the American ICBM force. Having a limited number (but more than just 100) of MX missiles in silos would then have made sense (but not “dense pack,” just regular silo deployment), if those missiles were held in reserve in case a surgical first strike was necessary (with the retirement of both the Titan II and then the MX, America currently has no ICBM with a heavy throw weight, and is now dependent on the aging Minuteman III).

You must be a woman, throwing insults at awake men who don’t buy the fairy tale that females are anything but mindless robots who follow anything that suits their temporary interests in society.
Only a small percentage of women can actually think for themselves. The rest are just parrots of the established set of ideas that society tells them is correct.
And your claim that the majority of white women vote for “populist” parties is a laughable hoax. Prove it.
If only white women voted, I’d venture to say that not a single nationalist party would come to power ever again.
The only language that women understand is brute force.

Excellent.  Excellent.

Women will be welcomed and honored in the movement when they take seriously their roles as respectful daughters, faithful wives, dignified mothers, and wise matrons. I assume male hostility is caused by the lack of these feminine roles in a man’s life. And I am not upset or offended by male hostility. How can it be otherwise? Men react to women. Ladies, know your place, in the home and on the farm, not in the office or at the ballot box.

If we assume this is really a woman, we note that she is more realistic about the female, and more considerate of male interests, than is Greg Johnson.  Very revealing indeed.

Another high trust northern hunter gatherer no doubt.  Building that societal consensus and all. No different than a typical organized crime Afrowop swarthoid engaged in illegal alien smuggling for money.  All equally disgusting.

Of course the Colored Chinese criticize the USA for “racial inequality.”  After all, White-hating Yellows must make common cause with their White-hating Black and Brown brothers as part of their Tropical Alliance.  And Derbyshire’s “Arctic Alliance?”  A pathetic figment of his imagination, a sweaty fantasy engaged in as he performs his “measured groveling” (his words, not mine) to “Rosie.” 

Once again I ask – does Unz pay contributors to The Unz Review?  Just asking, because I wonder what motivates the alleged “White nationalists” Johnson and Durocher to contribute there.  After all, Johnson has his own blog, and Durocher used to regularly contribute to Counter-CurrentsThe Occidental Observer, and other WN blogs.  Why write for a HBD Jew who previously labeled White nationalism as the biggest threat to America?  It’s not just the shekels, is it?

One can ask another question about Durocher, but, no, I’ll just sit back and laugh at the dunce-like utter cluelessness of Der Movement.  Dr. Jekyll is becoming a dim memory by now.

The HBD-Nordicist-Ethnonationalist alliance continues.

The System is Killing White Men

Some items.


The System is killing White men (emphasis added).

“What’s interesting is that Hispanics and blacks who started off at lower levels of life expectancy, they have continued to make progress. They’re not in the deaths of despair category for the most part,” Brookings Institution’s senior fellow Carol Graham told Yahoo Finance, adding that “The entire trend is driven by premature mortality among less-than-college-educated whites, mainly in the middle-aged years. That’s a pretty big marker that something’s really wrong.”

Wrong?  Hey!  I thought the destruction of the White man was a feature of the System, not a bug.  Shouldn’t the attitude of these types be “job well done, full steam ahead?”

Women and blacks became more optimistic over time, beginning in the 1970’s when gender and civil rights improved,” Graham wrote in the report. “The one group that experienced drops in optimism around the same time were less-than-college-educated white males, not coincidentally when the decline in manufacturing began.

What mendacity. Note how they try to blame it all on economic reasons, even though they say that for Negroes and Yeastbuckets, they “became more optimistic over time, beginning in the 1970’s when gender and civil rights improved” – and that was precisely the time that optimism among White men declined.  That’s the key to “not coincidentally,” not the hand-waiving about “decline in manufacturing.” Economic concerns may play a factor, but not the major role.  As evidence that it is not all about economics, see the following form the same article:

“We uncovered those death patterns,” Graham says. “What struck me is that poor African-Americans were three times as likely to be optimistic about the future as poor whites,” Graham said. “The metric that really stands out is not sort of happy, unhappy. Happy today doesn’t matter a whole lot. It’s hope for the future or lack thereof that’s really linked with premature mortality.”

Gee, the lack of economic opportunities are not harming those “poor African-Americans” who see hope for a future in a System that literally worships them, while poor Whites, and all Whites, particularly men, view the future with despair, as they are the “devil” of the System. Indeed, opinion polls for Whites in general show they are more pessimistic than Coloreds about the future; even “highly educated Whites” are more pessimistic.

Don’t blame it all on the economy, liars.  It’s more about race and culture.


Read this excellent Hood piece.  Emphasis added:

In contrast to leftists, President Trump focuses on public opinion. He talks big but does little. He cites favorable polls to prove his greatness. His campaigning and governing styles are contradictory. He advocates policies he doesn’t implement, such as an executive order on birthright citizenship, a remittance tax, or a flag burning ban. Rather than legitimizing ideas, this discredits them. Instead of encouraging supporters, he betrays them.

But Trump is a sincere man of genuine greatness, right Greg?

It’s time to rethink the Overton Window. The truth is already on our side. Many people already agree with us on most issues. If that were enough, we’d have already won.

In general, yes. With respect to specifics, such as HBD and racial fetishistic dogma, no.

Instead of trying to shock public opinion, we should focus on demanding platform access, creating financial networks, and building institutions and communities the media can’t destroy. Instead of focusing on ideology, we should focus on logistics. We need to change conditions on the ground and make it easier for white advocates to organize. 

I agree on all, and this is very consistent with ideas I have proposed here previously.  There needs to be an emphasis on actually achieving concrete objectives, rather than nitpicking on the typical “movement” ideological and memetic obsessions. We need to fight social pricing, ensure access to the public square (both digital and analog), and real community building (which everyone talks about, but no one actually does anything about).

Otherwise, we risk ending up like Georgia Clark, pleading for help from leaders who have already abandoned us.

Leaders such as the sincere God Emperor of genuine greatness, Antifa Don Trump.

Now, I’ve already spent much time and effort here deconstructing the abysmal stupidity of extant ancestry testing, but it is worthwhile to read this, which in some ways compares favorably to some of the points I’ve made here in the past.

An amusing comment that I’ve found online (emphasis added): 

So basically the ancestry DNA test claims I’m 58% Great Britain! I am not even from Great Britain, I’m German I live in Great Britain though

Whew!  It’s good he doesn’t live in Uganda, imagine what results he would have gotten then!

In all seriousness, AncestryDNA may be the worst test out there…either that or 23andMe…both are borderline D/F grades in my opinion, absolutely horrid. AncestryDNA specializes in providing bizarre data points that overlap with zero. 23andMe isn’t much better. They’re competing for last place, putting a lot of effort there. Probably using the raw data for health-related issues may be the best use of that nonsense.

The lack of proper parental populations for Europe is a major problem.  I believe that this is a fundamental reason why the results for European-derived peoples seemingly get worse and more absurd every time that these companies “update” their tests. These companies seem to be going “PC” and adding reference populations from non-White, non-European populations; and since results are modeled based on the available reference population samples, the more non-White references you add, the greater the probability  of assigning ancestral components to those populations. Indeed, there seems to be a correlation between the politically-motivated stress on adding “diverse” parentals and increasingly absurd results. We need more parental populations from Europe – where most of the people using the rests derive their ancestry from. 

Let’s take an example. Imagine a testing company wants to determine the ancestral proportions of Iraqis. They model the “admixture” under four scenarios. One – a large reference population from Iraq; many Iraqi samples as parentals. Two – few samples from Iraq, but many samples from Jordan, Germany, and Ghana. Three – the same as two, but with the addition of a large number of reference samples from South Asia. Four – the same as two, but with the addition of a moderate number of samples from Turkey and a large expansion of the samples from sub-Saharan Africa. Now, under those four scenarios, will the results from a given set of Iraqis be the same, or even very similar? Hardly. They would be markedly different. Only when there is a significant number of reference samples from the specific population of the person or persons being tested will the results be reasonably accurate, and even then the results can be altered when there are significant changes in the types and numbers of other reference populations used to model the “admixture.” These are facts that cannot be responsibly evaded by the testing companies, although they’ll like to pretend that this is not a factor.
The current state of commercially available ancestry testing means that such testing is virtually useless for significant numbers of European-derived people. Actually, less than worthless, as the results are absolute incorrect. Again, the major advantage of this testing is using the data to make an “end run” around the paternalism of the medical community and getting a handle on health issues – assuming that the data are accurate, which is an issue that needs to be confirmed if something “bad” is discovered.

Odds and Ends, 10/22/19

Counter-Currents.

Listen to this.

So, Antifa gave two weeks’ notice that the meeting would be disrupted/stopped, and gave details on where they would meet to organize their terrorist activity, and the organizers just went ahead without planning effective contingencies.

And there is way of identifying leaks – I’m not going to discuss this publicly; you would assume that all of the high-IQ big-brained northern hunter gatherers can figure out the obvious themselves, particularly as it is a well-known tactic in counter-intelligence that even has its own Wikipedia page, for godssakes.

“Let’s not be big about this, get angry, protest, etc.”  Yes, that’s right, Greg, that’s why I protest against Der Movement.  “We shouldn’t be easy targets…” That’s right, White ethnics are not going to be the easy targets for Der Movement, Inc.

Thank you for the non-answer to my question. It was almost like you were attempting to draw up a theory that explained politics at a particular level or something.
Into the museum no less…
Sigh this site really has gone down hill.

Yes, with the likes of Jeelvy leading the way, Counter-Currents is well along on the road to MR-style irrelevancy.  Why idiots keep on sending “D’Nations” though is beyond me.  Well, there’s a sucker born every minute, as they say.

Advice from a Counter-Currents commentator:

Rob Bottom

As mentioned, any attempt to defend oneself will be spun by the media and the authorities as an attack. Not only do we not have the cops on our side, we don’t have the justice system either. I don’t suppose I am suggesting anything new to you.

What we should have at any events are volunteers to film and photograph everything. Guests should arrive at the event with a chaperone / guard(s) who film any altercations or intimidation by the commies, copies of which can be used in court if necessary. Other volunteers should stand outside the event and film everything. These can be put online and used by our army of autists to try to identify specific members of the local antifa group so that they can be held accountable, particularly where they injure someone.

Given the consistency with which these antifa groups disrupt such events, proving they are the aggressors should not be difficult for a half-decent lawyer armed with video documentation of events all around the world. Obviously we can’t expect them to pay much for their crimes, given the state of things, but we can at least defend ourselves from spurious accusations if we take the right precautionary measures.

Of course, those volunteers themselves can be subjects of attack (unless hidden somewhere but still with access to generate photographic evidence), which punts the problem further down the line. Do we need another set of volunteers documenting everything that happens to the first set?  And then a third set to document the second set? 


It’s still a good idea, and worth doing, but, ultimately, we will need people integrated into the System so as to pressure for at least minimal freedom of assembly rights. We need folks running for office, and getting elected at least at the local level. Oh, you ask, what stops these people, the candidates and elected officials, from getting attacked?  In theory, nothing, but if the System actually allows political candidates and/or elected officials to be publicly attacked, with impunity, by leftist thugs, then they may as well close up shop with respect to maintaining any pretense of law and order and “democracy.”  If the System wants things to drop headlong into the abyss of a strife-torn banana republic, with evaporating political legitimacy, then allowing the mainstream political process to be subverted by street violence would be the way to go about doing it. Would they go that far in order to shut down the Right?  In the long run it’s a lose-lose situation for them, but they haven’t been put to the test yet.

Der System is, if anything, even more ludicrously incompetent than is Der Movement. Obviously, any competent “movement” led by a merit-based leadership should have at least a fighting chance against the types of morons who use “admin” as a username and password for sensitive information at a major corporation. What’s next? Username = username and password = password?  That Der Movement keeps on failing, failing miserably, tells you all you need to know about all of the “movement” heroes and “rock stars.”

Another Counter-Currents ethnonationalist infesting the nations of other peoples, taking their women, etc. Once again, Sallis is 100% correct – what these types mean by “ethnonationalism” is actually full-throated, in-your-face ethnoimperialism. What we have here are self-styled racial aristocrats who preach the joys of ethnic homogeneity and sovereignty while blatantly violating the ethnic homogeneity and sovereignty of all groups other than their own.

Pity poor Anton intimidated by all those hulking varsity football player Polish dudes – he needs to commiserate with Deasy, still traumatized by all those Bulgarian faces…in Bulgaria.  Ethnonationalist Johnson, who peddles this hypocritical drivel, either has to be the most majestically self-unaware person on Earth, or he is simply trolling all of us.


Zman the retard:

Now, I do like winter, so the gathering darkness and dropping temperatures is not followed by something I think is awful. In fact, winter is my second favorite month of the year, just behind autumn.

Someone needs to tell this idiot that winter and autumn are seasons, not months.  But what else can you expect from Type I Alt Right Beavis-and-Buttheaders?


I’m always amused by hypocrites who wax poetic about the joys of cold weather and winter, yet live in warmer areas of the country. Granted, Baltimore is not that warm, and does receive the ice that Zman complains about* (so, according to his own standards of behavior, we should all assume an attitude of autumnal schadenfreude over his fear of ice), but, still, it isn’t Maine or North Dakota. That’s similar to all the “movement” heroes and “rock stars” who live in diverse blue state coastal regions, but who regale us about how wonderful all those Mid-Western red state Whitopias are. Those areas are so very, very wonderful that these Type Is do all they can to avoid living there.


*Note to retard: Buy and use microspike shoe/boot crampons, and then walking on ice will be reasonably safe.

Jews, the Decline of MacDonald, and Other News

Jews and other news.

An excellent Joyce piece about Jewish self-glorification.

Jews have a joke among themselves that goes something like this: A class of schoolchildren is asked to produce an essay about giraffes; little Tom Smith hands in a piece on the neck; little John Baker writes about its diet; others write about the tail, the environment, and so on. Then little Benny Cohen hands in his paper, and it is titled “The Giraffe and the Jews.”

The joke, little-known among non-Jews, conveys an important truism — that, for Jews, everything, no matter how distant or abstract, often comes back to the idea and feeling of being Jewish. In other words, it is a joke about Jewish ethnocentrism. That non-Jews aren’t very familiar with the joke speaks to the fact that Jewish ethnocentrism is something that is very frequently discussed and celebrated by Jews, but also something that is frequently downplayed, obscured, or even denied when queried by outgroups.

Indeed.

A particularly interesting aspect of the study by Brown et al. is the response to increasing rates of intermarriage among American Jews. Jewish intermarriage has been raised as evidence by some scholars objecting to analyses of Jewish ethnocentrism, most notably and recently by Nathan Cofnas.[6] However, as Brown et al. note, given more than a century of intense assimilation and acceptance by the host population and a population size of only around 3%, “an endogamy rate [among Jews] of 50% is surprisingly high.”

People familiar with my work over a long period of time may remember that I did a quantitative analysis of this, graphing various White American ethnic groups for proportion of the population (X axis) and outmarriage rate (Y axis). A linear relationship was established – the smaller the group, the greater the outmarriage rate (since the greater the chance of a partner of a different ethnicity). I then tried to place Jews (in America) on that line and saw that they didn’t fit; indeed, their outmarriage rate was depressed compared to gentile groups of similar population size (who had outmarriage rates of greater than 70%). Of course, the more ethnocentric Jews practice endogamy, and if ethnocentrism has, at least in part, a genetic component, this trend would have the effect of increasing Jewish ethnocentrism over time.

One can note that arguments about Jewish outmarriage rates, while perhaps relevant to Jewish genetic strategies, are not directly relevant to the effects of Jews in White societies. Even if Jews are destroying their ethnic integrity through outmarriage (which is questionable) that doesn’t obligate other groups to endure Jewish destructive behavior toward those other groups for the period of time that Jews are still extant.

And speaking of self-glorification, isn’t that what Jewish involvement in the HBD cult is about?  When is Joyce going to denounce that cult and denounce “pro-White activists” who seemingly care more about Jews than about European-derived peoples?  Both Joyce and Strom write good things about the general subject of the Jews, but when it comes to criticizing people on the (Far) Right who are slavishly pro-Jewish, they suddenly become reticent.

And then we have this nonsense:

TOQLIVE: JAMES EDWARDS HOSTS KEVIN MACDONALD: INDIVIDUALISM AND THE WESTERN LIBERAL TRADITION

What that basically is, is MacDonald going hardcore, ultra-Nordicist. And why not?  I’ve predicted a convergence of HBD, anti-panEuropeanism, Nordicism, etc., with the net effect of alleged anti-Semites being puppets being manipulated by the likes of Hart and Unz.  And, a per the vast majority of my other predictions, I’ve been proven right.  MacDonald is so hysterical in his HBD-Nordicism that he makes ludicrous comments.  One example is the Kempian talking points about complete population replacement in Rome, which is not only factually incorrect but logically inconsistent with the idea that North/South European differences have been place since the Neolithic. Another example is the idea that Southern Italy is “collectivist” while the truth is that the amoral familism there is inherently anti-collectivist – there is no sense of civic duty or ethnic loyalty or nationalism, just loyalty to smaller family units.  I wrote about that at my old Richard Lynn’s Pseudoscience blog:

Amoral Familism is Not Ethnocentrism
This Afrowop defect is not the same as this.
That the HBDers are apparently unable or unwilling to distinguish amoral familism from ethnocentrism does not reflect well on their intelligence or their honesty.
Whether amoral familism is a step on the universalism-ethnocentrism spectrum, or represents an independent entity (in which case we would have at at least a triangle rather than a straight line representing the possibilities), is open to debate.
However, it should be clear that in many ways amoral familism is, practically speaking, as opposed to ethnocentrism as universalism is.  Universalism rejects ethnocentrism because it sees the ethnocentric view as too selfish and narrow, amoral familism rejects ethnocentrism because it is too broad and selfless.
For EGI, ethnocentrism is the “sweet spot,” and the other two options are defects.  From the standpoint of building a civil society, amoral familism is the worst, ethnocentrism is the best in a (relatively) homogeneous state but leads to problems in multiculturalism.  Universalism allows for temporary smooth functioning in a multicultural state, but long term leads to ethnic replacement of universalists by ethnocentrists.  Universalism in a homogeneous state is not stable, since it will eventually lead to alien immigration and multiculturalism.
A moderate degree of ethnocentrism in a (relatively) homogeneous state is more optimal than the alternatives.
There is also a question of the relative hereditability of these behavioral patterns.  The more genetically influenced, the more the pattern should hold with migration and existence in multicultural societies. The two extremes of universalism and ethnocentrism may be most heritable.  Contra the HBDers, aside from a dwindling number of mobsters, Afrowops in America really don’t practice amoral familism, while Jews and other Asians definitely still practice ethnocentrism. Thus, I doubt that amoral familism hereditability of these behavioral patterns.  The more genetically influenced, the more the pattern should hold with migration and existence in multicultural societies. The two extremes of universalism and ethnocentrism may be most heritable.  Contra the HBDers, aside from a dwindling number of mobsters, Afrowops in America really don’t practice amoral familism, while Jews and other Asians definitely still practice ethnocentrism. Thus, I doubt that amoral familism is strongly heritable.  It seems like a very plastic behavioral phenotype.
While it may be extremely difficult to make ethnocentrics into more disinterested civic-minded people, hopefully the more universalist and ex-familistic can be “trained” to become more ethnocentric, in competition to those with an innate sense of extreme ethnocentrism.
This isn’t the kind of analysis one would get from a HBDer, who instead would be pathetically groveling in front of the Altar of Asia, and worshiping a pile of yarmulkes.

HBD: the enemy of truth.

MacDonald is essentially trashing his legacy in his old age.  While it is sad to see, and unfortunate, it doesn’t obligate me to pull my punches when I comment on such mendacity.

Trump’s campaign antagonism toward the military and intelligence world was at best a millimeter thick. Like almost everything else he said as a candidate, it was a gimmick, designed to get votes. That he was insincere and full of it…

But, hey, according to Greg Johnson, Trump’s sincere, a man of genuine greatness, who could have won with Jeb Bush’s political views.  Even Trump himself refutes the latter, as chronicled at this site.  But Johnson continuously insists otherwise. Is that rent-seeking behavior?  Is Johnson using the Counter-Currents platform to gaslight his readers in order to safeguard his own reputation and the flow of “D’Nations?”

Not a bad Zman essay…particularly as it repeats points made here years ago.

After all, she’s of great benefit to all humanity. Why would anyone think otherwise?  How dare you!  In all seriousness, the positive attitude of Der Movement to that obviously unbalanced little Ladogan is truly tragicomic and pathetic. It is also confirmation of the validity of my criticism of Der Movement.

Hey!  Giovanni Gentile had that Ray Luca-John Gotti-Judge Napolitano puffed up hairstyle.  It’s in the blood, apparently.

Because invading Germans wrecked them?

Some may have remembered their ancestors working on them for some reason, but they no longer recall why. 

What bullshit.  When the water stopped running, it was because the city was sacked by, and later mismanaged by, the Holy Ones.

The people who knew how and why those aqueducts worked were long gone. No one was around who could figure out how to make them work again, because they lacked the capacity to do it.

Absolute, raging bullshit.  The water stopped flowing after the fall of the empire. Who was running the show then?  Maybe folks who never built aqueducts in the first place. Odoacer: “What’s that big stone thingy?  Can my horse drink out of it?” Hey, Zman, take your Kempian lies back to “Lagos.” By the way, the “Lagos” joke is so stale by now it’s starting to stink like one of Zman’s South Asians.

I got into Montreal looking forward to some lunch. I had a good long nap and my olfactory receptors were cleansed of Mr. Bong’s stink, by the waves of perfume from the shopping area passengers are now forced to endure at airports. Everyone is forced through a shopping zone now, as they want to make sure you are always ready to consume next product. As a result, airports now smell like the dressing room of a strip club…

Zman knows how they smell.  Interesting.

Normally, when you connect on an international trip, you just walk to the next gate and maybe you have to go through passport control. In Montreal, I had to go through customs, then security and then passport control again. It was a slow mess…

But I thought all of the excess bureaucracy in Europe was because of the EU. You mean, it is in Canada as well?

I finally made it back to Lagos with a collection of great memories of a wonderful time with friends in the European scene. Frodi is a great host and wonderful person.  I’m thankful for having got to know him and now count him as a friend…

But he can’t understand a simple concept even when explained to him repeatedly over a period of months.  Well, he works with Counter-Currents….
