Following Up on the National Alliance

More on why all those “free riders” are keeping their distance.  

Following up on thissee this.  Emphasis in original.

WILL WILLIAMS
13 JUNE, 2016 AT 7:11 PM — REPLY
Thanks, Mr. Seeber. I take responsibility for hiring the nutters and have been paying the price for it. In December 2014 we had to have someone, preferably someone who was trustworthy, on the WV property, and fast. Volunteers were scarce with so few Alliance members at the time, especially with winter coming on and the facilities in shambles. David Pringle and his fiancee Laura Lee have been getting settled on The Land now for over a month and are whipping the place back into shape. Theirs is the presence we’ve been needing on site for a long while. Before they arrived, it was like, you work with who is available, not with who you wish you have.

He takes responsibility.  Very well. However, apart from personally paying a price for it, what are the organizational-wide consequences for it?  None that I can see.  As far as “the facilities in shambles” and “few Alliance members at the time” whose fault is that?  The NA has been in existence for decades, it was getting a steady stream of revenue in the Pierce days, and after that, there’s nothing to show for it. They’ll blame it on Gliebe – see more about that below.

…it was like, you work with who is available, not with who you wish you have.

Exactly the opposite of the attitude that proper leadership would have.  The proper attitude should be – “if you don’t have who you wish you had, then postpone your projects and prioritize recruiting precisely those people that you really need and wish for.”

And how was this sorry state reached?  Some answers are perhaps here.  In all cases, emphasis added.

“Pierce loved Erich and kind of protected him,” says David Pringle, a former Alliance membership coordinator. “He would always sing Erich’s praises.”

Good judgment there Pierce.  After all, someone of German ancestry – father a WWII soldier no less! – who fought as “the Aryan Barbarian” has all the requisite attributes for “movement” leadership. Heil!

And Pierce was a good man to know. By the time he died in 2002, his organization constituted the elite of the white-power movement. The Alliance was earning more than $1 million a year and was considered “one of the leading institutions of the radical right in the Western hemisphere,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which monitors hate groups.

There was money.  Der Movement has always had money.  It’s just squandered by the Quota queens.

But the good times didn’t last.

Who would have ever guessed?

Pierce died unexpectedly from a swift strike of cancer and kidney failure. On his deathbed, he appointed Gliebe to the board of directors. It ensured his protégé a leading role in the Alliance.

Good judgment there Pierce.  Having the most pathetically abysmal judgment imaginable is a prerequisite for “movement” leadership.  

Shortly after Pierce was gone, three board members gathered in a cottage in West Virginia, sipping coffee. Fearing that the cause would lose momentum, they wanted to name a new leader fast.

Sure!  For a decision of this magnitude, make it fast, fast, fast – while sipping on your coffee. All you had to do was follow the Great Man’s recommendation, right?  What could go wrong?  Just throw prudence and deliberation out the window. But, hey, I though prudence and deliberation were defining characteristics of the big-brained Inner Hajnals?

It wasn’t an easy sell. Who wants to move to an isolated compound in West Virginia, three dozen miles from the nearest Wal-Mart?

Indeed.  That’s where the worldwide White Revolution is being organized.  Indoor plumbing optional.

Gliebe volunteered. Or rather, he raised his hand and said, “Me, me, me, me!” according to Robert DeMarais, who attended the meeting.

Who could resist?

Gliebe himself had a reputation as a ladies’ man. At one point, he claimed to have six girlfriends at the same time, according to Pringle. When asked about these rumors, Gliebe just laughs and looks flattered as his wife denies them.

Six at the same time?  Gee…Pierce just had his serial monogamy with the Eastern European mail order brides.

“I’ve always been able to get our message out to females,” he says.

The message or something else?

Erika was one woman who didn’t need convincing. She met Erich in the fall of 2004 after she called the Alliance to complain about being banned from the Resistance Records online chat room. The two instantly hit it off. On one of their first dates, they danced around a cemetery in Atlanta, where Erika used to live.

“Danced around a cemetery.”  But they’re racially pure and superior, and don’t you forget it!

But Erika’s modeling experience and her stripping job at Atlanta’s infamous Gold Club didn’t sit well with Alliance members. Rumors flew that Erika had danced for black athletes and that the club was owned by a Jew.

Gliebe never understood the furor.

Sure. What’s wrong with the partner of the leader of “worldwide White Revolution” working as a stripper? Who can understand the furor?

“In the real world, I’d be a hero for marrying a Playboy model,” he says.

Glad to see he has enough sense to know that the NA has nothing at all to do with “the real world.”

The Alliance had purchased more than $50,000 worth of swastika-soled boots, supposedly made in China. The boots were meant to be a moneymaker for the Alliance, which also sells books, magazines, jewelry, and tank tops. Pringle called them a waste of money; Gliebe calls them a “great investment.”

With that outstanding success, victory is just around the corner. After all, swastika-soled boots, made by Chinese slave labor, are the last and final ingredient required to attract those 250,000 new NA members!  This is the sort of imaginative and strategic visionary leadership that has led Der Movement to the precipice of Total Victory!  Heil!

He says that race-mixing led to the fall of the Roman Empire — never mind its economic woes or military failures — and that the founders of India’s ancient civilization were white.

But of course.  But – ah! – the racially pure and high quality NA leadership has proven their genetically encoded superiority time and again!  The William Pierce Memorial Statue awaits!  How tall shall it be?

Also see this.

Pay attention, all you “free riders.”

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.

7/21/19 in Der News

In der news.

Strom’s latest.

I wonder if Oberth is now going to be “unpersoned.”  First Shockley, now Oberth – who is the next intellectual giant to be shown to have had healthy instincts?

Also, I wonder what Strom thinks of those in Der Movement who mock the idea of space colonization as “utopian dreaming” because of “peak oil” and who assert that the future of man is “the forest instead of the stars.”  After all, we need to leave the stars to The Holy Oriental, while the White Man cowers in his “snug hobbit hole” in the forest.

One can also criticize Pierce’s “twigs and branches” approach, because, truth be told, putting a man on the moon involved a massive scientific, technical, and industrial infrastructure, backed up by an urbanized state, not by a bunch of city-hating folks “living on the mountaintop.”

The Republican “race baiting” strategy really hasn’t changed much in half a century. Trump is just less subtle about it.
Race is always the *bait*. Working-class White people keep voting GOP… and remain mired in demoralization and decline.

Sallis rewrite of Spencer’s comment:

Der Movement’s “dago baiting” strategy really hasn’t changed much in half a century. Kemp, Donaldson, Durocher, et al. are just less subtle about it.
Nordicism is always the *bait*. Type I activists keep supporting the Quota Queens…. and remain mired in demoralization and decline.

Der Questions for Der Movement

In all cases, emphasis added.

See this excellent and powerful Strom piece.  One part particularly caught my attention:

We need a strong, organized, racially conscious White community in every state, in every city. When we are much stronger, much larger, and much better organized, then even the most venal of politicians will be afraid to cross us. We will have businesses that bring in hundreds of millions per year, not just hundreds of thousands. We will have our own media providing not just racially-oriented news and commentary, but every kind of information and entertainment and advice and anything you can think of, in depth and with an implicit (and often explicit) pro-White perspective. That’s where we need to be. That’s what we need to do. In the words of the old union men who stood for White labor against Gilded Age leaders who betrayed their own Folk, we need to organize, organize, organize.

And National Alliance members are doing exactly that, all over North America.

I have some questions for Kevin Strom. These questions are coming from someone who has been involved in pro-White activism for a quarter-century, who has met your mentor Pierce, and who has praised you for the positive effect that your 1990s ADV broadcasts had on my activist development.  So this is not coming from a direction of hostility.

1. I understand that there may be things the National Alliance is currently doing that you cannot talk about publicly and – who knows? – maybe your group is really making the headway you claim.  But based on my experience with Der Movement, color me skeptical (no offense).  Do you really believe that your group is “doing exactly that” – all the things that you have described?  Really? Or that there is even the slightest possibility in the reasonable future that even the smallest fraction of these goals will be achieved?

2. With endless decades of “movement activism,” utilizing millions of dollars of donations and membership dues, and millions of man hours of effort, why hasn’t ANY of the above mentioned goals been even partially accomplished?  And that includes the efforts of Pierce and his incarnation of the National Alliance.  Are you aware that your other mentor, and friend, Revilo Oliver made a video discussing 50 years of “movement” failure…said video being made 50 years ago?

3. Why should we expect anything to be different now?

4. Do you admit that there is an ethnic affirmative action policy in the “movement,” particularly with respect to leadership, favoring individuals deriving from Northwest European (especially Anglo-Germanic) ethnic groups?

5. What has the National Alliance learned (if anything) from past failures?

Ethnonationalist filth attacking Spencer:

The majority of European nations, including the entire Schengen Area, and nations with nationalist governments, have banned Spencer and condemned his “racial European” message and his call for a “white racial empire”. While promoting his message in a controversial speaking tour in Hungary, Spencer was mocked by the Hungarian newspaper Népszabadság for his call for “a white Imperium” through a revival of the Roman Empire, and for his claim to be a “racial European”, ideas that the newspaper called contrived and without any basis in European history. In the aftermath of the controversy, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán pressed through legislative measures which banned his entry and condemned Spencer. The government of Poland has also banned him from entering the country and condemned Spencer, citing Spencer’s Nazi rhetoric, the anti-Polish and anti-Slavic racism of the Nazis, and the Nazis’ genocide of Slavic Untermenschen during World War II. In July 2018, Spencer was detained at Keflavík Airport in Reykjavík, Iceland en route to Sweden and was ordered by Polish officials to return to the United States; the successful effort of the Poles to ban Spencer from other parts of Europe arises from the Schengen Agreement.

The Hungarian newspaper was a leftist one, but Orban has no excuse, nor has the Polish government.  And remember what happened to Taylor. Has anyone noticed that, interestingly, divisive American ethnonationalists so far have had no problems traveling to Europe?

The Unz Review reader comment about Taylor and CNN:

Mr. Taylor is a gentleman and prone to the altruistic sentiments that plague Whites. Consider that Miss McGuirk started out by by making the implausible claim that although she is executive producer, she has no influence on the even the title of her own production.

It is entirely possible that she is another Lucy imploring Mr. Taylor to go ahead and kick the football because she won’t pull it away. Her role was to sweet talk him into walking into the abattoir.

I could be wrong, but consider this rather telling bit of evidence: if she was genuinely what she presented herself to, be a fair, impartial seeker of truth and discourse why would she be working for a cesspool like CNN? And why would the denizens of such a pit retain someone like her?

Then we have this, also from The Unz Review comments:

White supremacism has been a tool of those who seek to subvert Christianity. Any greatness of Europe and the West is due to Christianity and to think otherwise is an abominable blasphemy. Had Christianity taken root in the heart of Africa or India rather than Europe and the West we would have had a flourishing of Africa and India for the past 1500 years and Europe and the West would still be barbarian.

Now, initially I thought this was just sarcasm or amusing trolling.  However, considering how deranged devout Christians are, it may be for real.  Who knows?  

Some Errors of Der Movement

Errors of strategy and tactics.

Putting aside my fundamental disagreements with Der Movement’s ideology, let us consider some of Der Movement’s greatest errors of the last 50 years, with respect to action, not ideas.  This is certainly not a comprehensive list, and I’ve written about some of these things before (and written about other items not mentioned here).  But it is useful for readers to rehash some of these important issues.  At least some of us need to learn from mistake, even if the Quota Queens are unable to do so.

The transformation of the National Youth Alliance (NYA) into the National Alliance (NA).  While the NYA unfortunately had some Type Is associated with it (which is why it collapsed as an entity in its original formulation), it was in its foundation a Type II group based on Yockey and Imperium. If it had survived and prospered, we could have had in America an authentic pan-European Type II organization. Instead, we got the Nordicist hardcore Type I NA, and all the promise of the NYA was lost.  Lessons – Type Is are dangerous in leadership positions, and Nordicists will always try and subvert pan-Europeanism.  This begins to get into ideology, not the topic of today’s post, so let’s move on.

Moving to the mountain.  And whatever possibilities of positive advancement from the National Alliance were lost when the “national headquarters” moved from the DC area to the mountains of West Virginia. Whatever benefits that may have accrued from that move, they were more than outweighed by the negatives of having the headquarters of a group claiming to be the vanguard of worldwide racial revolution hidden away in the backroads of rural West Virginia. Careful readers of Griffin’s biography of Pierce, and those paying attention to Pierce’s comments over the years, can discern that the real reason for the move was simply Pierce’s Type I “twigs and branches” distaste for cities and his more positive attitude to the “mountain man” lifestyle.  As regards the well-being of the NA’s mission, the move was a strategic blunder of the first magnitude.  Remember – I was there for a visit, I saw it, and so I know of what I speak. There’s nothing wrong with the natural beauty of West Virginia and there’s nothing wrong with the long-suffering population of that state, abandoned by the coastal elites, but the mountains of West Virginia were simply not the place for the primary headquarters of a group that styled itself the vanguard of worldwide White Revolution.

Then there is the issue of public image; the perception of a small, powerless group, hiding out in the middle of nowhere, which would seem more even ludicrous given the group’s aforementioned pretensions of national and international influence.

The most prudent strategy would have been to hold two main headquarters, one (the primary headquarters) near some main artery of sociopolitical influence (e.g., the DC area) and a fail-safe, fallback position (e.g., West Virginia), where the group could retreat in times of crisis (one justification for WV given by Pierce was its security in times of major societal unrest and upheaval). It wasn’t necessary to have such a large property in West Virginia, and with the money flowing through the organization it was possible to have maintained two headquarters. With years of preparation, a cohort of followers, and all of the money, the issue of physical security for the primary (more central) headquarters could have been reasonably dealt with.

Spencer’s choice.  If what was written about NPI was accurate, then Regnery was correct that it was a mistake for Spencer to compromise himself and his future political liability by becoming an overt “movement leader.”  It would have been better for Spencer to have been the marketable “face” of the Far Right, leaving open the possibility of a future electoral campaign.

By the way, has anyone else noticed that the only substantive criticism Spencer gets is from the (Far) Right?  If you want cheap laughs, check out his Twitter account, and see the “arguments” the Left uses to respond to his tweets.  These fall into one of the following categories:

1. Posting the gif of Spencer being elbowed in the face.  This is the most popular leftist riposte.  According to the leftist “mind,” that constitutes an argument against Spencer’s views.

2. Calling him a “Nazi,” or a “bad person” or some other childish insult.

3. Mocking him over some aspect of his personal life.

Conspicuously missing is any actual argument against, or refutation of, Spencer’s views. The Left has no argument.  All they have is force, censorship, deplatforming, childishness, and thuggery.

As a side note, the tendency of people like Duke and Spencer to restlessly move from one failed endeavor to another, with no staying power, focus, and deep planning, has wasted the time, effort, and money of many people. On the other hand, why Strom and Williams are trying to reanimate the dead corpse of the National Alliance is beyond reasonable understanding. These are the two extremes – never allowing an endeavor to fulfill its potential before moving on to something else vs. not knowing when to cash in your chips and bury the dead past.

Squandering Trump.  The election of Trump could have provided at least four years of cover, behind which the Far Right could have quietly built an infrastructure, organized, infiltrated local communities, and targeted the 2018 and 2020 elections with right wing populist candidates, whose campaigns would not only be useful for propaganda but provide more cover behind which quiet organizing could have taken place. All this time, the blowhard Trump would have drawn the major attention of the Left, letting the Far Right do what it had to do without too much notice.

Instead we got Unite the Right, drunken podcasts, cosplay rallies and riots,  the failed Alt Right corporation, humiliating infiltrations, open feuding, and no real organizing or infrastructure building whatsoever.

The rejection and murder of Joe Tommasi.  I am not claiming that Tommasi’s guerilla warfare NSLF was (or is) the right approach, although it was seemingly well suited for the America of the early-to-mid 1970s, and it was certainly superior to the Stormtrooper dress-up and Esoteric Nazism of Koehl.  Furthermore, had Tomassi lived, he may well have developed other approaches to further the cause, adapting to the changing times of the late 70s, 1980s, and beyond.  Further, his emergence as a leader may have made the “movement” more accepting of, and palatable to, White ethnics.  Regarding this latter issue, of course the opposite was the case. Tomassi was despised within the “movement” because of his heritage, derisively named “Tomato Joe” because of his “Italian heritage and less than Nordic complexion,” and while he was admired in one sense for being “a total fanatic,” he was the target or contemptuous “private caustic remarks” about his “ethnicity and appearance.”  The more things change, the more they stay the same. White ethnics have no home whatsoever in Der Movement, Inc.

I’m not one to compromise on race, I’m pure Germanic, no mixed DNA, not even Slavic or Iberian. I don’t see any reason to dislike nick over this. He’s never claimed to be a pure european . I respect certain Arabs,Turks, Persians, Pashtuns, southern Italians, Greeks. These people are heavily mixed with non-white peoples yet they can conjure honour, just keep away from our white girls!

After all, Southern Italians and Greeks are no different from Arabs, Turks, Persians, and Pashtuns.  They overlap completely on a PCA – have no doubt about it!  

If this laughable retard had been tested with DNAPrint, he’d have been a “Eurasian mongrel.” Instead, being compared to himself with extensive “Germanic” parental populations with today’s “testing companies,” he’s as “pure” as a CEU Mormon would have been 15 years ago.  Funny how one’s DNA changes depending upon how it is being measured. Paging Bohr and Heisenberg!

By the way, going back to Koehl vs. Tommasi, the existence of a homosexual cabal in the “movement” dating back to at least the 1960s and 70s should give pause – once again, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Tommasi, Conte, Polignano – why do they even bother? This is what Der Movement, Inc. wants to support, so that’s what it gets.  After all, send your shekels to folks doing something that other people do for nothing.  But, they’re so very…English, after all!

Of course, this starts delving into the issue of ideology, which is not the focus of this post, but is perhaps the largest failing of Der Movement.  Thus, the “movement’s” rejection of, and animus toward, White ethnics, is not a major focus here, nor is its ethnic affirmative action program, particularly with respect to its “leadership.”

The Man on White Horse Syndrome. I’ve discussed this endlessly on this blog, so no reason to dwell on it here, but the amount of time and energy wasted on Reagan (and Goldwater?  and Nixon?) Putin, Ron Paul, and, last but not least, Donald Trump, has been appalling. The obsessions with Tulsi Coconut and Andy Eggroll have been just plain embarrassing.

Over-reliance on the Internet.  I have also written about this extensively as well.  Putting all its eggs in the digital basket, the Far Right is not only uniquely vulnerable to deplatforming and other forms of online censorship, but it has forgotten, for the most part (Amren being somewhat of an exception) how to organize IRL.  Racial preservation will be actualized in analog, by friends, we are not going to “save the race” by preserving digital images of Whites or by saving online files of White genetic information.

This is getting into ideology, but I’ll just mention letting the “movement” be hijacked by “HBD race realism” was a terrible mistake.  In fact, the whole mainstreaming “big tent” trend was an error.  I won’t even mention Millennial “Beavis-and-Butthead White nationalism” or Silk Road White nationalism, or any of these other bizarre wastes of time. The whole WN 2.0 scene was a terrible waste, as is pro-Jewish and/or pro-Asian strains of “White nationalism” (sic). The dominance of Type Is is also something that veers into the ideological, as is the obsession with “traditionalism.”  

The degeneration of the “movement” into Der Movement, Inc., a money-making enterprise for grifters needs not to be gone into, as it has been discussed here before.  I have nothing against people being full-time activists and living off donations and “movement” infrastructure – IF THEY EARN IT, IF THEIR LIFESTYLE IS TO SUPPORT RACIAL ACTIVISM INSTEAD OF USING RACIAL ACTIVISM TO SUPPORT THEIR LIFESTYLE.  Can you name ONE of these tin cuppers who actually earns their “D’Nations” by means of real accomplishment?  And those people who get the lion’s share of the money for doing things that other people do not nothing (running a website!  podcasts!) are disgusting, as is using children as fundraising props.

Welcome defectives!  The more the “movement” talks about eschewing defectives, the more it welcomes them.  Amusingly, a “movement” that prides itself on its “elitism” and “racial superiority” has always gone for the lowest common denominator; it will take anyone White who can fog a mirror held up to their nose.  This – combined with faulty ideology – drives quality people out of the “movement” – a form of Gresham’s law.

Counter-Selection by the System

In bed with the System as well as with the Press.

Let us assume for the sake of argument that a particular incident took place.  Thus, let us consider the following scenario, including several premises:

1. A prominent “movement leader” is a complete incompetent, wrecking the group of which he is head.  However, he is acceptable to the rank-and-file for all the usual reasons.

2. This leader does something unpleasant that would make the rank-and-file lose respect and confidence in him and endanger his status as leader.

3. This “something” is known by the authorities and is eventually adjudicated – in criminal or civil court, it doesn’t matter – locally, so the “movement” in general does not know about it.

4. This is the crucially important point – the watchdog groups – with all their spies, infiltrators, resources, and connections to the authorities, undoubtedly know about the “something.”  How could they not?

5. And most important of all – knowing about the “something,” the watchdog groups inexplicably stay silent about it, protecting the “leader” and his reputation among “movement activists.”

If we accept all of these premises, then the question arises WHY did the watchdog groups protect the “leader” about the incident in question?  Two possibilities. The less likely is that the “leader” is actually working for the watchdog groups, and just like the FBI will protect a mob informant or an undercover agent from the local authorities, the watchdog groups wanted to protect their “man in place” in the “movement.” But, as I said, that is unlikely.  By far the more likely explanation revolves around premise 1 – the person in question was an absolute incompetent and was driving the “movement” into the ground. Why do anything that would threaten that inept “leadership?”  Why take the chance (admittedly unlikely in Der Movement, but still) of someone more competent replacing this individual?  Better to leave him in place to wreck racial activism, and serve as an effective bogeyman for watchdog group fundraising, than to expose what is described in premise 2.  So the “watchdogs” kept silent, and enjoyed the resultant chaos.

Moving on from that (Hypothetical? Real?) scenario of the WN 1.0 past, let us now consider the situation in the WN 2.0 “movement” over the past few years.  The System, the Mass Media, focus on, and elevate in status, the most incompetent (relatively speaking) of “movement leaders.”  

Let me put aside my ideological and personal disagreements with these people and just rank them in relative terms.  I see the most competent and persuasive person being Taylor. But note that Spencer gets exponentially more attention than does Taylor. Johnson is perhaps equal to Spencer in competence but less so than Taylor, and Johnson gets more attention that Taylor but significantly less than Spencer.  MacDonald is maybe one million times more effective and competent than Heimbach – but who has received more attention from the media?  David Duke always got more attention than William Pierce, and the latter was a more effective and disciplined organizer and ideologue.  Rockwell got more attention than Carto. You can talk about “personality” and a “flashy and aggressive style” as explanations, but that only goes so far.

Lest I get accused of “low information moralizing” – yes, I know that, for example, in the past Taylor was a guest on a variety of TV talk shows.  I would like to point out three things about that. First, it was years ago, long before Trump, long before the System become overly paranoid about White restlessness and resistance. Giving Taylor that attention was a mistake on their part; will they do the same today?  Two, they made that mistake because they didn’t understand how sane and articulate Taylor would appear on TV. They may have assumed that they could bait him into frothing at the mouth and giving spastic Dr. Strangelove salutes.  Third, the attention given to Taylor then is a miniscule fraction of that given to the Alt Right heroes of today, what with the larger presence of the Internet and with social media.  And, yes, Pierce was on 60 Minutes – an attempt to tie him and The Turner Diaries to the Oklahoma City bombing, an interview that took place two decades before the Trump candidacy, an interview that pales in comparison to today’s coverage of the Alt Right. So, my basic argument still holds.

One can productively speculate that the System intentionally focuses media attention on the more inept and/or bizarre elements of “movement leadership,” while starving the more effective elements of attention.  That applies to ideas as well as people.  The more stupid the idea – endorsing Tulsi Coconut or Andy Eggroll for example – the more attention it will receive from the Press.  That’s not by accident.

I’ve talked to people who grew up under communism in Eastern Europe.  After the changes, and the secret police files were opened, it was found that many dissident groups were “controlled opposition.”  Infiltrators were in many cases running the show.  In some cases, infiltrators actually founded the show – the secret police themselves organized a fake opposition to the regime so as to identify, manipulate, and compromise the authentic opposition, and to create a useless safety valve for discontent,

Whether or not that is occurring in the West today as regards the Far Right, at minimum we have a situation in which the System is taking what we can assume is an authentic dissident opposition and intentionally boosting the public profile and leadership credentials of the more incompetent, so as to fill the leadership niche space with the inept, and thus preventing the emergence of a competently effective dissident leadership.

The System is utilizing negative selection – counter-selection – to ensure that the “movement” is led by failures.  The “movement’s” affirmative action policy fits very well here.  After all, the System is well aware of “movement” fetishism – remember Hermansson gloating that HopeNotHate intentionally picked a Swede as an infiltrator so as to appeal to Nordicist instincts. In Siege, Mason talks about how the infiltrator sent to attempt to compromise him was of a racial type meant to appeal to WN archetypes.  Similarly, the System will carefully boost the credentials of the “right” types, what is required is a combination of racial bonafides as well as gross incompetence. Thus, while Taylor has the racial bonafides, he is too competent to be a focus of too much media attention.  Instead, the attention has to be focused more on Beavis-and Butthead sniggering, freaks, perverts, proven failures, etc.

So, yes, “The Press” – in conjunction with “movement” fetishism – will choose your leaders.  


Enjoy the ensuing never-ending failure.  After all, “The Press” couldn’t accomplish this without your very willing acquiescence.  You have met the enemy and he is you. Enjoy.
