Happy Father’s Day for all readers for whom it applies.
This piece by Strom is excellent, except for one thing – the absolute nonsense about how similar “Persian” Iranians are to Europeans, more similar than are Jews, Strom asserts. That is simply not true, population genetics says otherwise, no matter what Der Movement claims. I don’t like Jews any more than Strom does, but I refuse to lie about science and objective facts just to make some political points. The problem with associating racial preservationist ideology with lies is that once the lies are identified and refuted, the enemies of racial preservationism will use that refutation to attempt to delegitimize preservationism.
We can very well favorably contrast Iranians with Jews without inventing incorrect assertions about genetic kinship and genetic distance. After all, the Ashkenazi genepool is significantly European and the non-European elements are more similar to Europeans than are Iranians. The primary issue with Jews is more their selected behavioral traits (e.g., extreme ethnocentrism, neuroticism, and deviousness) coupled to a religious-cultural tradition of supremacism, dual morality, and hostility toward outsiders, particularly Europeans.
But, that’s a side issue. The main thrust of Strom’s work this week is sound. It also captures much of the problem with HBD. So, Jews have a high, high IQ. Given all the things Strom mentioned, is that high IQ ultimately a good thing for other peoples? Basically, the Jews are like high-IQ Roma – the same attitudes about outsiders and the urge to exploit the “other” but instead of picking people’s pockets, they are picking people’s nations. Whither IQ?
No fan of Milo, here, but his article is informative.

Now, who was it who was:
1. Opposed to the “big tent” with the Alt Lite?
2. Opposed to yeastbucket grifters infiltrating Der Movement?
I’ll give you a hint.
Note the common themes between Alt Lite failures and that of Der Movement – the lack of judgment demonstrated by tolerating people who should be eschewed, merely because those people are of some immediate utility. A lack of patience goes along with this lack of prudence, since immediate convenience and reckless plowing ahead is valued over slow, steady, and safe progress.

Maybe, just maybe, some people just placed too much trust and hope in a silly girl in her early twenties, who happened to have hundreds of thousands of followers but not a clue about politics… Let’s at least be open to that possibility.
Does “some people” include Der Cool Fish?
Peak Tin Cupism. The individual’s reasoning is sound up to the point in which we consider that people can come and go in Der Movement as well as do organizations. Imagine if someone, years ago, had left money in their will to Derek Black, as an up-and-coming racialist activist. A lot of spinning in the grave would now be going on. The general advice in the main article is reasonably sound.
