One Advantage of WN 2.0

They have no single “Grand Poobah” holding them back.

While I tend to be critical of White Nationalism 2.0 (the Beavis-and-Butthead Alt Right) and their pretensions of being ever-so-superior to White Nationalism 1.0 (the Pierce model), I do have some positive things to say about the WN 2.0 crowd.

The fact that the 2.0 folks are much more decentralized than we 1.0 folks used to be (I’m talking about my analog activism period “back in the day”) is helpful in getting things done.  Now, often (i.e., almost always) the things that get done are stupid and counter-productive, but at least for the purposes of spreading chaos and promoting balkanization, it’s sometimes a net good.  It’s true that the times are more propitious for street activism now than it was in the past, with the declining racial status of Whites combined with Trump’s incoherent wrecking ball campaign and “train wreck” Presidency, and the presence of the Internet is another important factor promoting a more decentralized “do-it-yourself” activism, but, still, a major factor is the Millennial free-wheeling independence of 2.0 to do things without needing “permission” from some “movement”-appointed affirmative action Fuhrer.

It’s not like we WN 1.0 folks ~20 years ago didn’t want to do “in real life” street activism.  We did.  I remember some of the more rambunctious fellows at meetings had to be “restrained” like attack dogs on a leash.  But, we were told, you see, “you are political soldiers” and have to subject yourselves to the discipline of the “national leadership” and “follow directions” like good little boys.  By some strange coincidence – I’m shocked, shocked! – the only activities we were allowed were those that were directly or indirectly tin cup panhandling for the “national office.”  Buy books!  Buy tapes!  Buy all the pre-made, moronic, locally-irrelevant “propaganda materials!”  Pay your “membership dues!”  Distribute stickers and leaflets, which were nothing more than membership and fundraising for the selfsame “national office.” Have pathetically infrequent meetings in the “little rooms” (as per the Dresden song) to discuss distributing more leaflets or putting stickers on bus stops.  Strike a blow for the White race!  Buy more of the pre-printed garbage displayed on the table!  And if someone had the idea of designing their own propaganda that was actually relevant to current events and particularly relevant to the locale in question?  No, no, a thousand times, no!  After all, the propaganda had to be “professional” and “standardized” – code words for funneling the shekels to the Grant Poobah for laughably irrelevant, uninspiring, and tiresomely boring material produced by the budding Goebbels of our heroic leadership.  Really, we weren’t allowed to use the restroom at a meeting without getting approval from the “national office.”  And so nothing got done, people got discouraged, and the whole enterprise collapsed.

WN 2.0, for all its faults, is too independent of mind, too free-wheeling, too proud of its own freedom, to be constrained by rent-seeking martinets and their calls for a highly centralized, vertical command structure, where orders flow downward and the shekels flow upward.

Yes, the 2.0 folks need to ditch the Beavis-and-Butthead attitudes, the tragicomic cosplay optics at rallies, and have better planning, strategy, and tactics.  But, at least they have the freedom of action to get things done.  Those “things” need to be done better and more professionally, but they do need to get done. They should learn a lesson how WN 1.0 activism was “smothered in its crib” by self-seeking quota queens play-acting as Der Fuhrer, and the blind obedience of 1.0 activists to the prancing martinets, as opposed to just organizing among themselves to get things done.

The Dying Alt Right and Other News

News. Satire. It’s all one.

Is the Alt Right dying?

It is more and more looking like Sallis is going to be right once again, as I’ve repeatedly predicted that the fever dream (nightmare) of the Alt Right is going to end, sooner or later, but the speed of the collapse is even taking me by surprise.  The loss of Bristow is devastating, absolutely devastating.

And of course the anti-White scum crow in delight:

“Everyone in the alt-right is a malignant contrarian,” Lenz said about the growing divisions in their movement following the united front the alt-right displayed in Charlottesville. “They come from a culture where insults are the coin of the realm.”

But, but, but…I thought it was only “White Nationalism 1.0” that could be so categorized?  Oh wait, I was right about this as well, although that’s nothing, the equivalent of “being right” about stating that “the sun will rise tomorrow morning.”

The association of “the movement” with the Alt Right means that racial nationalism in America will be damaged (once again!) by this latest fiasco, proving right those who warned that a too-close association with racial nationalism with one relatively juvenile and inept faction will be the downfall of any progress made as a result of Trumpian chaos and balkanization.

Leave it to our fearless leaders to go from the (admittedly overwrought) euphoria of November 2016 to the grim ashes of March 2018.

I guess that whole Legion Europa thing looks at least a little bit better in hindsight, no?  But of course that project wouldn’t do, would it.  It just didn’t have “all the trimmings,” so to speak, right?

Enjoy the collapse. It’s a long way down.  

And you have no one to blame but yourselves.  A “movement” based on Type I leaders and Type I followers, in today’s age of 24/7 media coverage, social media, heightened analysis, sophisticated police state tactics, well-funded “watchdog groups,” organized Far-Left domestic terrorists enabled by TrumpCuck and HowdySessions, is destined to fail.  What’s needed is less Type I empty bravado and more Type II cunning and planning.

Read this.

My understanding of the situation is that this woman used her own photograph on her pseudonymous activist social media account, used a pseudonym that was slightly different from her real name (Tiana Dalichov vs. Dayanna Volitich), and discussed detailed aspects of her IRL job while essentially indirectly taunting her employers (Agreed with a guest that white supremacists need to infiltrate schools and become teachers and said, “I’m absolutely one of them.” Said on her podcast that she had put on a “dog and pony” show for administrators, telling her students that when administrators showed up, “I’m going to be different than I usually am. I just don’t want you to be shocked, I want you to play along.”).

So, yes, I agree, that must have been satire.  I mean, a serious activist with a podcast and a social media account wouldn’t have done all of that, would they?  Well, Der Movement as a whole is satire, so how could anyone tell the difference?

I’ve written about this before, but I would be a strong supporter of Pierce’s “table-leg therapy” theory if I was not such a committed pacifistic humanist. Emphasis added:

Table-leg Therapy
Senator Fulbright and the Reverend Berrigan are still on the wrong side of every issue except Palestine, and they are on the right side of that issue for the wrong reasons.
In other words, liberals — including the consistent ones — are just as sick as ever and just as dangerous to the future of America as ever. The only way the great majority of them will get their thinking straight, eventually, is with a sturdy, oak table leg applied smartly and repeatedly alongside the head.
Nevertheless, the present dissension in liberal ranks is of inestimable value. It is the most fervent and influential of the liberals who are now taking an anti-Zionist position, and their numbers and influence are growing daily.

Can we skip the optional Asian (girl) friend?

But, but, but…the great and good Desmond Jones says that Italy is absolutely ethnically homogenous and will remain so until the end of time, forever and ever, amen.

Solution: these Nigerians are actually Sicilians.  It’s the mafia after all, and, as we know, real Nigerians are actually lighter-complexioned, more gracile, and racially more European than are the Sicilian Afrowops.

IQ and Leadership

Part of the explanation?

Why “movement” leaders tend to be, in general, incompetent mediocrities leads to a number theories.  There is of course Der Movement’s stringent ethnic affirmative action program. The dominance of Der Movement by Type I activists, who favor their own, for leadership, also is a factor.  Dissident movements tend to draw in marginal personalities, while the elevation of defective freakishness repels the less marginal; the lack of suitable candidates leads to marginal leaders. Leaders are almost always overt and public activists, typically attracting people who have “little to lose” IRL (unless they are trust fund babies or the retired wealthy).

Another mechanism is that even when other variables are controlled for, the perception (perception, NOT reality) of who is an effective leader is related to the leader’s IQ, but in a curvilinear and not linear fashion.  Thus, assuming an average IQ of 100, the peak for optimal perceived leadership is an IQ of 120 – not only are dumber people perceived as less effective, but smarter ones as well. One can theorize mechanisms for this phenomenon, but it is what it is.  Emphasis added:

Although researchers predominately test for linear relationships between variables, at times there may be theoretical and even empirical reasons for expecting nonlinear functions. We examined if the relation between intelligence (IQ) and perceived leadership might be more accurately described by a curvilinear single-peaked function. Following Simonton’s (1985) theory, we tested a specific model, indicating that the optimal IQ for perceived leadership will appear at about 1.2 standard deviations above the mean IQ of the group membership. The sample consisted of midlevel leaders from multinational private-sector companies. We used the leaders’ scores on the Wonderlic Personnel Test (WPT)-a measure of IQ-to predict how they would be perceived on prototypically effective leadership (i.e., transformational and instrumental leadership). Accounting for the effects of leader personality, gender, age, as well as company, country, and time fixed effects, analyses indicated that perceptions of leadership followed a curvilinear inverted-U function of intelligence. The peak of this function was at an IQ score of about 120, which did not depart significantly from the value predicted by the theory. As the first direct empirical test of a precise curvilinear model of the intelligence-leadership relation, the results have important implications for future research on how leaders are perceived in the workplace.

This may be another explanation for “movement” failure.  120 IQ people are intelligent no doubt, but have limitations.  Most prominent “movement” leaders would tend to be in this range (Hello Alt Right!  Hello Alt Wrong!) and more intelligent and capable people are weeded out (and for other reasons such as those discussed above).

But, but, but…”what about William Pierce?” Der Movement mutters.  There are those other variables to consider: “leader personality, gender, age, as well as company, country, and time fixed effects.”  Pierce benefited from ethnic affirmative action, although not particularly charismatic he had certain alpha male personality traits, he was tall and physically imposing, people respected him for giving up his academic career to associate with Rockwell, and there was a time/era effect – he came to prominence in an America more appreciative of the science/technical men; today’s Beavis-and-Butthead “movement” is unlikely to value an “egghead” physicist.

And consider Strom, likely equally intelligent, but never considered as leadership material even before his legal troubles.  Although ethnically acceptable, Strom’s personality and other traits could not compensate for a high-IQ (and likely contributed to a more negative view).  Gliebe was much more acceptable to the rank-and-file: how did that turn out?

Historically: Hitler was likely less intelligent than Goebbels, Mussolini less intelligent than Gentile or Evola, Codreanu less intelligent than Cuza, etc.  Francis Parker Yockey failed as a practical leader, and a careful reading of Coogan’s book suggests reasons why, some of which relate to Yockey’s own personality quirks and personal failings, but also because of jealousy over his obvious genius as well as the inability for him to effectively explain his concepts to the Type I riff-raff.

Getting around this problem would entail the high-IQ leader compensating like Pierce if possible, or surrounding himself with high-IQ advisers and listening to them, or a fundamental change in the “movement” that would allow it to overcome the societal prejudice against the higher-IQ.

Race and Der Movement in Der News

Odds and Ends.

This is what the far-left ultracuck Donald Trumpamnesty wants to legalize.

MAGA indeed!  Perhaps MAFAUA would be more appropriate: Make America Fat And Ugly Again.

Well, not, not “again” – as the average American, of all races, Trump included, is already fat and ugly, so “Make” and “Again” are superfluous.

I note that the “work” of the despicable Andrew Hamilton is now being featured at the National Alliance’s National Vanguard site.  Well, what can one say?  Apparently, the new National Alliance is keeping close to the spirit of William Pierce and his ideology – and I do not mean that as a compliment.  The NA was always an iron-core Type I organization, so none of this should come as a surprise.  Let a thousand (plagiarized) flowers bloom!

It is unfortunate that an individual as intelligent as Strom so frequently displays bad judgment in his professional and personal lives.  As regards the former, trying to revive the National Alliance (which died with Pierce) is an error, and if you are going to go ahead and try and do so anyway, do you have to repeat all of Pierce’s mistakes, and enable the worst forms of freakishness and ethnic fetishism?  Isn’t there a better way?

Be that as it may, the new National Alliance once again proves it is just as unfit to represent White interests as was the old.

And see this:

This is why I’m rich and famous.

Well, I don’t know about “famous” but while “rich” is subjective, news reports about “movement” funding – which Brimelow has never denied or argued against – show that the Happy Penguins must be quite happy indeed with the financial haul VDARE gets.

A Sicilian expresses his love of chicken.

This is great; unfortunately, the way America is going, the typical “American” will be hanging from the trees by the time the Chinese set up (military) bases on the moon.

Apparently, Amren’s Munro films some Romanians dancing the Hora, long may it turn.

The beginning of the end: Gregory, Gregory, where art thou? A “full time staff writer” for the Alt Wrong.  How have the mighty fallen.

The Purge Continues

The meaning of the purge.

The suppression of dissident opinion and The Purge of the Right continues.

How to interpret all of this?

It would be tempting for the Anti-Alt Right Far Right to adopt the attitude of “the Alt Right and associated groups caused all of this trouble and this whole mess is their responsibility.” However, that would be the wrong view. We cannot confuse means (online activism) with ends (promoting White interests).  If the only way to safeguard our Internet presence is to be completely ineffectual, to accomplish nothing, to stay in our little playpen, then the online presence is useless.  The whole point of online activism is to eventually transition to the real world.  The Unite the Right rally had every right to occur, the violence was the responsibility of the Left and the authorities, and the Purge is System repression and nothing else.  Thus, the Purge is ultimately the responsibility of the System, not the Alt Right.

Of course, there are grounds to criticize the Alt Right and the other rally organizers.  We can ask whether the benefits of the rally was worth the costs. We can point out the lack of online security allowing the planning to be infiltrated, the relative lack of organization, the participation of Nutzi types, the silly costumes, and the point that if the Alt Right pushes its hegemony over racial nationalism, then they should include major racial nationalist stakeholders in the planning, and in the overall strategic direction, of big events and other activities.

That said, as much as I dislike the Alt Right, they cannot be blamed as the fundamental cause of the Purge (which would have happened eventually, sooner or later).

If we want to point fingers on the Right, we can look toward the “movement” as a whole, the Old Movement that never created the infrastructures required to survive System persecution and to move forward.  The Old Movement for the last half-century has been invested in the Piercian Der Tag mentality that the System is about to collapse any minute and “the revolution” is just around the corner.  After all, why organize in depth, for the long haul, with a decades-long strategic vision, if you are always thinking that “the System is definitely going to collapse in five years?”  If you believe, and proselytize, the view that a Turner Diaries scenario is going to occur within the next half decade, why bother with long term planning?

And so, when we find ourselves in the current situation, we find we have no community presence, no community support, no integration into the community, we have no cadre of lawyers ready to come to our defense, we have no print journals or other analog media ready to pick up the slack of online censorship, we have no elected officials sympathetic to our cause (the retarded buffoon in the White House, who denounced “hate,” definitely does not count), we have no professionalized security or intelligence operations, we have no businesses outside of direct “movement” activity to employ activists and to generate income, we have no (insofar as I know) “reptile fund” to support required covert operational activities – we have none of it. We are woefully unprepared for the contingencies that come from dissident activism and we are paying the price for that unpreparedness.  Instead of taking rhetoric about how “the System is anti-White and doesn’t care about our people” at face value, we have ignored opportunities to reach out to the declining White middle class, we have neglected practical community-based activities to help those Red State White Americans with increasing mortality rates and existential despair, we have turned our back on the real world and have rolled around in our isolated playpens.  And now when we need White support, they are not there for us like we were not there for them.

The “movement” made three significant errors:

1. Not organizing in depth in the real world.  See the two preceding paragraphs. This has been the largest error.  Decades of time, enormous efforts, and a lot of money, all have been completely wasted.  An absolute disgrace.

2. An over-reliance on digital activism.  This ties in to point #1 above.  We have become addicted to the Internet, at the expense of real world tangible activity.  We have reached a point where the “movement” is a foundation of digital bytes (easily erased by the System) coupled to a more recent superstructure of rallies full of mostly well-meaning people many of whom nonetheless look like they’ve just left a cosplay convention.  That’s not going to work out.  We need to take stock, and while we rebuild our online presence, we should consider this a “wake-up call” to invest more in analog activism – deep and meaningful community outreach, practical politics, System infiltration, and building of new alternative communities – and perhaps invest less in talking among ourselves online about “Pepe” and “Kek” and the older “movement” memes as well.

3. A too-narrow leadership cadre.  It has been the same people – the same types of people – and the same ideas, over and over again. There is no accountability, years and decades of failure have no consequences.  Other people with different ideas are ignored and scorned, because they are of the “wrong” ethnicity and/or do not kowtow to “movement” leaders and dare to criticize the “rock stars” and/or refuse to drink the “movement” Kool-Aid of outdated fossilized dogma.  It is high time to consider other perspectives. You are not obligated to agree with those perspectives, much less actualize them, but at least give them a fair hearing.  

Having said all of this, a case can be made that the Purge may in the long run be for the best.  It would have had to happen sooner or later – and worse may yet be to come if racial nationalism becomes more successful – so the faster the “movement” adapts to the way things are, the stronger it will become having weathered the crisis.  The System will adapt as well – a Red Queen scenario is likely – but this process is necessary for any real dissident movement.  The status quo had to be broken.  Perhaps it could have been broken in a more productive manner, but what has happened has happened, and reality needs to be dealt with as it exists.

A Tale of Two Failures

A tale of two failures: Klassen and Pierce.

We’ll now take a look at this analysis of Klassen’s basic errors and compare some of those to that of Pierce, and observant readers can discern patterns inherent in generalized “movement” failure. This is by no means any comprehensive analysis; nevertheless, it points toward real problems.

Problem A: Less than Stellar Employees
The problems Ben Klassen ran into are probably more related to the natural conditions of pioneering any sort of new religious and ideological territory than failings on his part. After all, Klassen’s career was extraordinary. He was so financially successful he was able to retire as a young man. From that situation he went on to successfully invent and market a product, be elected to public office, and make more money in real estate in Florida. His racial ideas, while radical, cannot be ignored.
His first problem related to the limitations of his pioneering work was having more problem employees than top talent during his active career as the church’s leader. Klassen writes in 1992, “I had damn few volunteers to choose from that were foot-loose and fancy free, could type and were dedicated to the cause, all of which is a dismal reflection on the disoriented state of mind in which the White Race was then, and still is.”
White advocate Jared Taylor spoke of this phenomenon in a 2017 YouTube.com interview. After describing his “redpilling” and white advocacy work going back to 1990, Taylor says, “In the earlier days you met most unusual people because it took a very unusual frame of mind to look into those dusty corners of university libraries [where frank discussions of racial matters existed in print] and to be aware of the obscure PO Boxes [where one could get racially frank literature]. So they were always very unusual people. Now, you meet more and more perfectly ordinary (sic), they’re not particularly unusual, they don’t have sort of the odd kinks of the mind that the older race realists tend to have. They’re smart, hard-working, nice looking, attractive people who have just seen through the rubbish.”[3]
In the above statement, Jared Taylor is pulling his punches and being generous. 

Dissident movements tend to attract marginal personalities.  It’s the nature of the beat.  One could attempt – one MUST attempt – to counter this tendency by weeding out the more obvious dysfunctional individuals at the very least. Failure to do so make dysfunction a self-reinforcing quality, as higher quality people become repelled by the freaks, while, of course, even more freaks are attracted.  Der Movement has always had the weakness of being so desperate for followers, for validation that they’ve accepted virtually anyone and everyone, leaving themselves open to both sincere freaks as well as malicious infiltrators.

Of course, in reading some of the quotes above, one wonders about the “pot-kettle” thing, but we can leave that aside for now.

Problem B: Location, Location, Location
Klassen sunk a great deal of capital into his church’s campus in the mountains of western North Carolina. In Trials… Klassen remarked that most of his neighbors were curious about his ideas and mostly friendly to his face. However, this friendliness masked the serious problems that developed due to the church’s location.
On the surface, the homogeneously white and rural location in the “conservative” Highland South would be a great pick for a new, explicitly pro-white church, however this was not the case…Framed in the metapolitical structure of the time and place, Klassen was, to put it simply, a living embodiment of “evil.” He was a big target smack dab in the center of the pre-sighted range of the Southern Protestant “Guns of Singapore.” The workers building Klassen’s church were shot at and had to bring their firearms to the site to be able to finish the job. After the church was built, it was vandalized, and the sign was hit by a shotgun blast. Klassen received hate mail, bomb threats, hostile trespassers, and prank phone calls…Klassen did recognize that his Christian neighbors would be hostile in theory. However, he didn’t realize the counterintuitive nature of ethnic struggles. This is the second problem with his pick of location. Those in homogeneous areas like Minnesota, western North Carolina, and Vermont are often so insulated from non-white dysfunction that there is no understanding in such communities of why someone like Ben Klassen would come into their midst with an idea that the institution of Christianity damaged white racial interests. They didn’t even realize white racial interests were under threat. As a result, every local politician in the area could be hostile to Klassen and not lose a single vote.
Had Klassen organized his church in South Florida, Anglo preachers would, possibly, have sermonized against him, but the whites in the pews would have all had personal experience dealing with non-whites and their problems. With this in mind, in South Florida, The World Church of the Creator might have easily gotten a quiet, solid-as-bedrock, base of support. 

True. But these types make the same mistake over and over again.  What is it?  Quota queen deficiencies?  Personal preferences (see about Pierce below)?  Ethnic affinities?

Had Klassen purchased property in the Poconos, he’d probably had done one better. Those with summer homes in that area would have had deep connections to New York City, quite possibly the city with the most red-pilled white population on this planet. It is also possible that had Klassen put his headquarters in eastern Pennsylvania and northwestern New Jersey, he’d have had an all-around better class of “walk-ins” supporting him.

But, but, but…those Whites (you know, the same sorts who supported Trump precisely because Trump was painted as a “fascist bigot” by the media) are the wrong (wrong! wrong!) kind of Whites – or perhaps not even White at all! Southern European Negroes, Eastern European Asiatics, all sorts of non-core European, outside-the-Hajnal-line, low life trash!  No, no, a thousand times no!  

The National Alliance – well, Pierce – made a similar error with respect to location– moving to the mountains of West Virginia, completely isolated from the main currents of American (and world) events and power, was a horrendously bad case of poor judgment.  And this was particularly so given that Pierce exerted tight centralized control over the activities of the Alliance’s local units (see more on this below) – a person so isolated being in no condition to exert control over people dealing with the real world of modern America.  And to the argument – “they had to move there to avoid leftist attacks” – let’s consider what Pierce told Griffin when the latter was writing his biography of the former.  Essentially, Pierce left DC because he wanted to, he wasn’t comfortable in “the big city,” he preferred the “mountain man” life, and he was getting disgusted and triggered by DC and was “doing things” (*) and was afraid those “things” would escalate and get him in real trouble.  The move from DC to Hillsboro was not really informed by a grand strategy, but by Pierce’s personal lifestyle preferences and his self-stated inability to control his behavior.  Now, if the “National Office” was the headquarters of an underground guerilla movement then, yes, living out in the middle of nowhere, the grand sage on the mountaintop, would have made sense.  But as the leadership of an aboveground, legal, metapolitical activist group, the location of the National Office was simply terrible.  If DC or some other “diverse” city was unacceptable, then there were plenty of predominantly White smaller cities, not too far from the centers of power, in which a real National Office could have been located.  With the income being generated, and with some good sense, and quality staff, security arrangements could have made that would have been tolerable. But that’s not what Pierce wanted for his lifestyle, with the predictable outcome.

Also, and no offense meant to those who worked with Pierce in the wilds of West Virginia, but that location, that environment selected for people who were not representative of Whites in general, or of White nationalists more specifically.  That may be one reason why the Alliance’s propaganda (apart from the ADV broadcasts, which were usually quite good), membership handbook, and book catalog were all “off-putting” and did not resonate well with the target audience.  Essentially, the location predisposed the National Alliance to (relative) irrelevance and failure.


Problem C: Too Many Targets
Ben Klassen did himself no favors by picking too many targets. In his tribal struggle against Jews and non-whites, he also became a tax protestor, an anti-Mason, and an anti-Federal Reserve activist. His anti-Mason attitudes were probably correct in a European, French Revolution sense, but in the English Speaking World, Freemasonry is little more than a social club providing a place for retirees to get away from the wife and bicker with each other over trifles. 

Conspiracy theorizing and pet peeves have always been a problem for Der Movement. That goes against one of my most important pieces of advice: do not expand “movement” freakishness beyond what is absolutely necessary. That’s Sallis’ Razor: do not multiply memetic entities beyond necessity. Racial nationalism is already a “bridge too far” for most people, adding these other things is just plain stupid.

However, his biggest “too many targets” problem was his tax protest. Because he didn’t file his taxes, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was on to him, and that gave a desperate edge to his activities. 

That was just plain stupidity (once again) on Klassen’s part.  Why add to your troubles and give the System ammunition against you?


Don Johnson died of a heart attack shortly after the Chilton Bank fiasco, and Klassen came to believe that his employee may have been a plant to disrupt his activities all along. 

Maybe.  Or maybe Klassen was simply foolish.  Or both.

Problem D: Competent Enemies
While Klassen was stuck with a large number of bumbling employees and unable to find a “great promoter” or “white financial angel,” his enemies moved on him with a ruthless efficiency. Klassen’s true ideological enemies consisted of the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center, both of whom used the local Macon County, North Carolina authorities to further their aims.
His enemies used the tactics of the strong against the weak. If one has more firepower but is faced with an elusive enemy, the trick is to bait the enemy into exposing itself to the firepower. This happened on the night of June 13-14, 1986. Klassen’s chief typesetter and employee Carl Messick, titled by Klassen Hasta Primus (meaning spearhead) awoke to voices in the middle of the night. Fearing an arson attack, he called both Klassen and the sheriff’s department and then took a firearm and fired into the intruders’ car as the trespassers attempted to escape. It turned out the intruders were a Georgia couple, William and Patricia Trusty. They claimed to be looking to visit a local couple. Remember, in 1986, there were not any pro-white activists on the internet that could crowd-sleuth the Trusty’s background like today.
The SPLC’s report on the affair states that the “…[S]ecurity chief Carl Messick fires 19 shots at the car of a Georgia couple who strayed onto the COTC grounds.”[11] The SPLC intelligence report doesn’t mention that the Trusty’s “strayed” onto COTC grounds in the middle of the night. The Sherriff’s Department arrested Messick. The trial was another unforced error. Messick didn’t use a lawyer in his defense, but the alleged paralegal expert in the COTC, the aforementioned Don Johnson. Messick was sentenced to seven years. By Klassen’s account, Messick was one of the few competent employees, and his incarceration really put him behind.
Klassen’s movement was bankrupted by the SPLC legal trick of suing a pro-white organization after someone with “links” to it did an illegal act. In this case, a follower of Klassen shot a black sailor and Gulf War veteran in a road rage incident in 1991. A jury ruled in favor of the SPLC and The World Church of the Creator was destroyed.
This tactic, where a follower of an extreme, pro-white group gets involved in a violent confrontation with someone else, and the SPLC swoops in with slick lawyers that seek a bankrupting judgement is effective. However, like the famous Highland Charge was effective against soldiers armed with matchlock harquebuses, but not more advanced flintlocks that were quicker to load and had a longer range, the SPLC’s tactic might not work in the future.

Again, quality followers/employees are important here.  And anyone who takes someone with an online handle like “supernazi1488ssmanadolflives” and gives them “the keys to the kingdom” is just asking for trouble.  Don’t be all surprised when your files end up in the hands of “watchdog groups.”

The SPLC’s bankrupt on behalf of tactic only works in a situation where the overwhelming preponderance of the public see the SPLC as a moral force. Additionally, a jury must be persuaded to give a big payout targeting an organization only thinly “linked” to the actual criminal, therefore the entire jury must be totally alienated from any pro-white idea. If pro-white metapolitical ideas seep into the culture, jury decisions will change. Additionally, this tactic can be used against the SPLC. For example, in 2012 a gunman named Floyd Lee Corkins II, who had links to the SPLC, shot up the Family Research Council after the SPLC labeled them a “hate group.”

Let’s consider the tight and hyper-centralized control of National Alliance activities by Pierce and his “National Office,” relevant to the abovementioned stories.

I have heard some people defend Pierce’s rigid centralized control with reference to the SPLC tactics mentioned above.  The idea was this – if Pierce let local units have more autonomy, they might do something illegal, which would be used to legally bankrupt the Alliance.  Or even if they just did something stupid and not illegal, and/or produced shoddy propaganda, that would have been an embarrassment to the “National Office.”

There is some truth to that.  One could counter-argue that by establishing such tight control, Perce created a legal situation that he could not plausibly deny pre-knowledge and approval if a NA member did do something illegal (even if Pierce had nothing at all to do with it and had no pre-knowledge). One could counter-counter-argue that this wouldn’t have made a difference one way or another, Pierce would have been blamed in any event, so better he exerted as tight control as possible.

A better argument against Pierce’s centralized control was that if he had picked better local unit coordinators, and had been more selective in NA membership, he would have had higher quality people in the local units who could have been trusted with a bit more autonomy.  You could have had local unit coordinators enforcing discipline in some cases rather than having the constant micro-management from the local office.

And the most convincing argument against the Pierce approach was that the centralized control was not really of the nature of “hey, you can do some local initiatives targeted to your local context, but you need approval first” but rather of the nature of “you guys can do nothing except distribute propaganda produced by the National Office (purchased by members thus forcing them to subsidize Pierce’s lifestyle if they wanted to do some local activity) or maybe if you are Gliebe you can be allowed to put together some sort of small cultural festivals.”  In other words, the centralized control essentially stifled all local initiative and all local activities except putting up the NA’s stickers and distributing leaflets (except again for a small amount of leeway allotted to one local unit – Gliebe’s).  Pierce’s centralized control was excessive, it was not a request for approval but rather a denial of all local initiative.  It led local units to be nothing more than money-generating vehicles for the National Office: membership dues, purchasing the centralized propaganda for distribution, and recruiting more members to do the same.  It was more like a Ponzi scheme or cult than an activist organization.  It could have been possible for Pierce to retain control but still let local initiatives go forward, if these initiative were actualized by high quality members, led by high quality local unit coordinators, and with timely approval by the National Office.  That’s not how it was done, however.

*I remember visiting the DC area during the last years of Pierce being located there (and long before I became associated with Der Movement), and seeing a building in Arlington with the following words, in big letters, carved into its wall: White Revolution is the Only Solution – accompanied by a swastika. One wonders if that was an example of Pierce “doing things.”

Stupidity in der news.

An Amren commentator gets dangerously close to uncovering the truth behind Silk Road White nationalism:

R Sagan  American Tax Payer • 15 hours ago

Don’t forget that Chinese female spies are actually trained to marry White men (no joke) to infiltrate the culture and steal resources. Way to go race-mixing White guys!

Chinese infiltrators are also sucking up many spots in our best universities because we need “diversity” and Asians have 300 IQs and are the model minority or whatever. Thanks cuckservatives!

Chinese workers are hired by overly trusting White people, who subsequently get everything in their company stolen from under them. Way to go businessmen!

Let me add: cunning Asiatrices are allowed to infiltrate White nationalism and wreck said nationalist activism for Asiatic advantange.  Way to go thirsty beta male White race traitors!

Looks exactly like Dolph Lundgren!  No, wait, it’s an Afro-Arab slave, who replaced real Romans, and whose descendants are the modern degenerate Afrowop!  No, wait it’s a (likely well-off) middle-aged man, unlikely to be a slave, so – it’s a med conspiracy!  The reconstruction was altered in response to ‘an offer you can’t refuse.”  No, wait…


Related to that last story, fossilized “movement” dogma alert:

…that’s who the ancient Greeks and Romans were — in fact Whiter than present day Greeks and Italians.


Which led to the following comment:

So Collin, what evidence can you present that the Ancient Greeks where ‘whiter’ than modern ones?
If you look at artwork from the oldest Greek civilization, they are entirely brunettes or having olive skin:

No worries, I’m sure Colin has read dat dere March of the Titans and Who We Are, and no other evidence is required!  


The Alt Right is nothing more or less than the same Old Movement dressed up in Beavis-and-Butthead style to be more palatable to the Millennial/social media crowd.  These nitwits wouldn’t recognize an original idea if it was staring them right in the face.
