Coronavirus Racism!

And other news.

Sure!  I mean, eating cows and eating dogs are exactly the same!  After all, cows and dogs have had exactly the same historical relationship with humans!  We can never forget humans and noble bovines becoming akin to family around the fires of primitive man!  We can never forget the high intelligence of cows and their bonding with the human families they live with!

Certainly, eating a pork chop is the same as eating snakes, bats, wolf cubs, and civet cats!  Tucking in a well-done beefsteak is exactly the same as eating alive some wild animal!  And, no doubt, eating domesticated farm animals is no different than engaging in cannibalism as part of bizarre, crazed political rituals during the deranged “cultural revolution!”  Same, same, same, and don’t you forget it!


What motivates ostensibly intelligent people to write such absurd apologia?  Is it the “yellow fever” hunger for hordes of Asian women who in aggregate possess less serum estrogen than a single male mouse?  

Colored is as colored does.  Note how Asians behave exactly the same as Blacks and Hispanics – the same “in your face” aggressive racial identity politics.  Well, after all, Asians are a tropical people, part of The Tropical Alliance, the south-south alliance of color.

I can’t help but notice that the latest MLB cheating scandal is dominated by mixed-race “Hispanics.”


The thing that’s interesting about this is the tacit assumption that using a racial slur is sufficient grounds to be victimized by assault and battery.  It seems like the whole case here is about the alleged slur rather than the actual physical assault, which was recorded and which no one denies.  Interesting.

Hmmm…

“As much as an American as people who have been here over 400 years…” Yeah, uh-huh! I once had my eyes opened to the game while bored and half watching “The Jackie Robinson Story.” There is a scene where the Italian second baseman refuses to play along side Robinson because he is an Negro. The “woke” team owner mercilessly shames the White ball player saying, “His people have been here over 400 years! And yours came over on the boat 11 years ago!

Hey!  I didn’t know that Lind’s America’s Tribes hypothesis was made into a movie. You learn something new every day!

Commentator:

Lol! Can confirm! I consider myself to be pretty normal aside from my politics. Unfortunately our politics tend to attract many whiny, socially retarded, high time preference losers, I love the term “wignat” because it describes those types perfectly. We need to bring as many normal and successful Whites to our cause as possible.

Sure!  More of Savitri Devi, Guenon, The Men Who Can’t Tell Time, and The Homo and the Negro are just the things to bring in all of those “normal and successful Whites.”

Unless you live in a non-“swing state” like California or Utah, NOT voting for Trump is really, really stupid…

Certainly.  Israel needs more protection for West Bank settlements; what would they do without Trump?

…for reasons that have been made abundantly clear here and elsewhere, especially American Renaissance. 

Listening to HBD race realist Yellow Supremacists is obviously the wise choice. Listening to folks who said that Trump was “the last chance for White America” and that he is a “sincere man of genuine greatness” is obviously a wise choice.

I actually think Trump will be better in Term 2, but even if he isn’t, the Democrat alternative – ANY Democrat – will be nearly 100% awful for white interests.

That’s true.  But note that the promise of 2016 has degenerated into once again voting for the lesser of two evils.  Whose fault is that?  Maybe Savitri Devi can tell us.

Disappointing as Trump is, his reelection buys us time…

TO DO WHAT?????  Your Quota Queen “movement” has wasted the last for years – no, worse than wasted, because your beloved “movement” is worse off now than it was four years ago.

…which is what I want personally…

The voters will no doubt obey your personal wants and wishes.

…and what the race needs.

Oh, I can think of plenty of other things “the race” needs more.

After another Trump term, it is quite possible that the Comngressional [sic] GOP will have gotten the message that the base WANTS THE INVASION OF IMMIGRANTS HALTED.

OK, I just got over my fifteen minutes of uncontrolled convulsive laughter after reading that.

Not saying those cowards will get it done, but amnesty under cover of “comprehensive immigration reform” will be dead in the GOP. 

Sure it will, what with Trump openly advocating for more legal immigration and with a long history of advocating “touchback” immigration for illegals.

That itself further buys us time for redpilling, networking, ingathering, and finally ethnostatism. 

After all, what with all the progress of the last four years, we gotta buy time for Gaslighting Greg, Gaslighting Greg Jr., Sir HuWhite, Gamblin’ Man, The Master of Disaster, Professor Hunter Gatherer, The $148,303 Man, and all the rest to bury racial activism even deeper than it is now.

Trump must win, if you care about White America.

Cuckadoodledoo!


Good to see someone else recognizes Z-man’s flim-flam:

Sleepy

“Like the Left, to quote Kirk, ‘[the ideologues in dissident circles] see politics as a revolutionary instrument for transforming society.’”
Then:
“Politics is always about keeping the ends in mind and making the necessary compromises to further those ends. Politics is a means to an end. Ideologues always fall into the trap of thinking politics is an end in itself…”
So which is it? Is the error of the ideologues to have “transforming society” as their end goal, or is it to treat politics as “an end in itself?
For instance, the anti-Semite sees the manifest outsized role of Jews in politics (e.g., campaign contributions and the push to impeach and remove the president), foreign policy (e.g., wars for Israel), the judicial system, academia, the media, entertainment, etc., as a bad thing for the country and seeks to change this. Your dissident rightist sees the rejection of the manifest reality of “the human condition and biological reality,” and seeks to change this.
The former makes the anti-Semite an ideologue, but the latter dos not. Please explain.

Odds and Ends, 2/12/2020

More issues.

Observation: Have you noticed how the attitude toward the US military and veterans has changed?  We went from saliva-spewing hatred and “baby killers” to groveling adulation and “thank you for your service.” You see, when the US military stopped fighting the enemies of America, and started fighting the enemies of Israel, then suddenly the projected attitudes from the mass media and pop culture changed and the lemmings changed with it.  

That’s great, Hood.  Why don’t you forward that to The Master of Disaster? Further, why don’t you admit that not only was your vaunted Alt Right wrong about Trump, it – and your whole affirmative action “movement” – wasted the last four years and accomplished absolutely nothing positive?

And what if your hero Trump wins in 2020?  What about 2024 and beyond?  It’s time for real world politics, as I have been calling for here, not just pathetic grifters who use the term “metapolitics” as an excuse to milk living expenses from their deluded cash cow followers.

Oh, yes, Hood, you admit the “movement” is not ready for the repression to come.  The problem, Gaslighting Greg, Jr., is that your writing makes it appear as if the “movement” is something that’s just popped up over the last few years, rather than being a fixture, in its current form. for more than a half-century, and well-funded enough to waste millions of dollars, and to have one hero earn more than $140,000 in a year to edit a blog and sit around on lawn chairs with a race-mixer.  $148,303 – worth every penny, no doubt!

I mean, how can you live with yourself, Hood?

This is HBD:

JohnEngelman  

I expect China to achieve world hegemony by the end of this century, if not sooner. I expect the United States to be dominated by a high IQ cognitive elite composed disproportionately of Jews and Orientals.

And the purpose of HBD is to achieve that objective as quickly and efficiently as possible. White enablers of HBD are traitors to their race and their treason will never be forgotten nor forgiven. Count on it.

Once again, absolutely classless, tasteless, and self-serving:

Hey!  “Trevor Lynch” needs to but some more movie tickets!  Why leave money to your loved ones who are left behind?  They are not going to usher you into the Golden Age!

As long as the Chinese murderers exist, of course this will be true.

Quite Right.  And in Der Movement, we have the HBD-ethnonationalist-Nordicist alliance, centered around sites like Unz, which has scum like Durocher and Johnson writing there.

The happiest nations will be ethnically homogeneous.

Hungary must be real unhappy and all what with the alien John Morgan living there.

Who is responsible for the Equifax hack?  Do you really have to ask? Don’t worry!  You might be dead from Chinese coronavirus before Chinese identity theft causes you any problems!  Hail HBD!

The monsters are killing American children.  When will the civilized nations of the Earth take action against The Land of Monsters?

Does the Counter-Currents crowd know this?

Her father came from Sardinia and her mother came from Sicily.

No, no, a thousand times no!  Forget about that ebony-skinned Black African and let’s have more posts about why we need more Greta Thunbergs. After all, Greta is of great benefit to all humanity!  Just ask Durocher.

Seriously though, if any of the readers of this blog from Italy have connections with Brothers of Italy, you need to make Meloni and other leaders aware of the work of Frank Salter.

Has The Master of Disaster moved on already from Sanders and is ready to support Bloomberg? 

It’s been quite a ride!

See this.

Given that hair length may well be the only external cue distinguishing Chinese “males” from “females,” one can imagine the social disruption that would ensue if the hair-shaving practice became widespread in order to stem the transmission of the disease. Without differential hair length, what are they going  to do?  Walking around topless certainly would be useless for sex-identification there. Genital examination may be useful – possibly – but that’s going too far for a casual interaction. Serious stuff there. Definitely not a “nothingburger.”  Particularly for the HBDers and the Silkers.  How are they going to choose their future mates and/or border guards of the West?

A Jewish Coup?

And other issues.

Read this.

Mostly true, but perhaps MacDonald should worry more about the Jewish-HBD coup to compromise Der Movement, effects of which are manifested in TOO itself.

I believe the present political crisis should be seen as a struggle between our new, Jewish-dominated elite, stemming from the 1880–1920 First Great Wave of immigration, and the traditional white Christian majority of America, significantly derived from pre-Revolutionary colonial stock but augmented by subsequent white Christian immigration.

According to Lind’s America’s Tribes hypothesis – a hypothesis supported by historical data – the “Yankee” fraction of the “significantly derived from pre-Revolutionary colonial stock” group is actually part of the “Yankee-black alliance” that is now the Yankee-Jew-Colored Alliance.

The history of US politics is little more than the history of these two coalitions: the southern-Catholic alliance and the Yankee-black alliance…the civil rights movement united Jews with blacks and their traditional allies, greater New England Protestants and Germanic Americans, against white southerners and northern white Catholics. Today, Jews are the most loyal white ethnic group in the northern coalition

An online comment about The Lords of HBD:

If you expect the truth from the Chinese government, then you are, respectfully, quite insane. And as for anyone seriously questioning the official pronouncements, a pipe dream at best.
My wife is Chinese, naturalized many years ago. Her oldest sister, who was raised in Communist China looked right at me once and said: The Tiananmen Square massacre never happened; because, the government said it never happened. They would not lie.
When I asked her about the press coverage, she calmly and clearly stated it was a fabrication of the western press meant only to embarrass the Chinese government. Really.

He’s a sincere man of genuine greatness!

The HBD view of an issue of significant relevance to the Alt Right is seen here. The “Gay Shaman Theory” must be very popular among a certain faction, a certain cabal, of the Alt Right. The Masters of the Mannerbund!  No wonder that the cabal is in love with HBD, especially with this fellow saying that having a “homosexual caste” is beneficial for a society.  Will Andrew Joyce critique Dutton on this?  If not, why not?  Why are the HBDers a sacrosanct caste within Der Movement?

In any case – the video is classic HBD.  Long on theory, short on data, and completely deficient of skepticism-inspired hypothesis testing. “Just so stories” are as essential to HBD as is Yellow Supremacism.

Wuhan and Movement News

The Yellows will infect us all, while Der Movement continues to be ludicrous.

Read this.

If even  – IF – this current virus turns out to be nothing too serious, it’s a “dry run” for some future killer pandemic that will emerge from the swarming hominid petri dish that is China. Forget about asteroids, super volcanoes, or nuclear war, the end of humanity will likely occur as the result of some Chinese virus.

In a perfect world, the civilized nations of the Earth would use whatever means at their disposal, up to and including military force, to end the Chinese disease threat to humanity. That nation would be put under foreign-led martial law, all of the outdoor food markets, pig farms, and other breeders of disease would be destroyed, and proper levels of hygiene forced upon the population – for a start.

Unfortunately, China’s military might – mostly copied from other nations – including nuclear weapons (a military funded by the trade imbalance of the Chinese selling their cheap junk and “medical” poisons here) makes such an approach impossible.

The only alternative is a total quarantine of the Middle Kingdom.  But we can’t have that, can we?  It might disrupt the “economy” and interrupt the flow of flat-chested, estrogen-deprived Chinatrices for ”awkward squad” omega White males to have sexual access to.  And it would be “racist” against a “people of color.”  The Tropical Alliance may get all worked up about that.

Our ideas are already out there. The problem is that they are considered very low status (lower than pedophiles) and publicly admitting to them is quickly becoming a one way ticket to homelessness and destitution. This is the primary problem that needs to be solved. We need to be able to access financing and secure the ability for people to express these views without being assaulted or having their lives ruined. This means having things like credit unions and legal advocacy groups. Until then, trying to “change the culture” or “move the overton window” is just spinning our wheels and getting nowhere.

Metapolitics = propaganda + community organizing. What you are describing falls in the latter category. We definitely need institutions that will help lower the costs of open white advocacy.
Legal defense/lawfare organizations and payment processors are two very important types of institutions to create.

No kidding; that’s what has been advocated here for years.  It is obvious this needs to be done, even the affirmative action cases realize this, but after decades of “activism” and millions of dollars wasted, nothing has been achieved.

It is an obvious failure of leadership; but with a moronic rank-and-file, a characterless “leadership” that has zero accountability and takes responsibility for nothing, and the strict ethnic affirmation action policy, change does not seem likely.

You’ll just get more of this.

Laughable comment:

I would like to personally ask Dr. Johnson why he himself cannot become involved in politics? I know the many answers to that question, to include his own lack of desire in or taste for the carnage and stupidity of electoral campaigning. But I believe he is exactly what we need…

You are right RE funding.
But deplatforming has made it very difficult for CC to depend simply on many small donations, which is what a tithe would be.
We really need large patrons to step forward if we are going to fund new institutions.

The Battle cry: There’s no money!  There’s no money!  Yeah, right.

“Large patrons.”  Hmm, like this?

Greg has it backwards. In reality, FIRST you need to build something useful and appealing with the ample resources you guys already have and have had for decades. THEN, perhaps some “large patrons” will have the confidence that their money won’t be utterly wasted like Regnery’s has been.

According to the most recent (year 2017) VDARE Foundation tax form 990 filing that is posted at ProPublica, Brimelow’s compensation for that year was $148,303. Oh, the poverty!  After all, he’s accomplished so much with that type of money over the years that all the “large patrons” are scrambling to be the first to give “D’Nations” for more such accomplishments.

Der Movement can be showered with money and still fail because it is led by Quota Queen affirmative action incompetents with a long record of proven failure.

Oh, and I notice that “The Master of Disaster” is no retweeting Bernie Sanders.  Has he tired of Princess Tulsi Coconut and King Andy Eggroll?  Will the next endorsement be of Sir Bernie Redjew?

Thinly Disguised Yellow Supremacism

And other news.

Excellent Forney podcast.  Not only critiquing Der Movement but the Holy Oriental as well.

Do you think these “people” are the same as you?

Cooking up some new viruses, eh?

CHANG: And besides maybe live birds, what other kind of live animals might have been at this market?

SI: Oh, there is a photo being circulated since yesterday in Chinese social media, showing the catalog of one store at this market. And you can see from the catalog, they have almost 50 different kinds of species of wild animals being sold. And you can see the price as well. So it’s…

CHANG: Like what kind of wild animals?

SI: For example, hedgehogs and peacocks and wild rabbits and snakes, deer; crocodiles as well. Many of these wild animals, they’re not necessarily caught in the wild – right? – so they can be farmed animals. They’re just exotic food that’s not very commonly found.

CHANG: And why are wild animals so popular as a delicacy in China?

SI: Eating wild animal is considered a symbol of wealth because they are more rare and expensive. And wild animals is also considered more natural and, thus, nutritious, compared to farmed meat. It’s a belief in traditional Chinese medicine that it can boost the immune system, you know? Of course, some people eat wild animals just because they were driven by curiosity.

CHANG: (Laughter).

SI: It’s really difficult to change the mindset of, you know, eating wild animals is better than eating farmed animals. But it’s a common kind of mindset in many parts of China.

A thought experiment. Listen to the entire part of Forney podcast discussing China. Watch and read all of the above.  Consider all of those swarming, virtually identical, black-haired, black-eyed, sallow-skinned, flat-faced, broad-nosed Asians screaming at each other in Mandarin or Cantonese, in those food markets, with the screams and squawks and smells, with wild animals being slaughtered and eaten, animals being eaten alive, and ask yourself – do you honestly believe that those “people” think in the same manner as you or I?  Do you honestly believe that they think, that they view the world, in the same manner as any European – no matter how degenerate or debased you may think any of those Europeans may be?  Are they any less alien than are sub-Saharan Africans or Australian Aboriginals?

HBD is a monstrous lie. 

We can notice that the HBDers are always quick to emphasize differences among Europeans – their Hajnal obsession for example or their fetish for hunter-gatherers vs. farmers – but that they are real reticent about focusing on differences between Europeans as a whole and East Asians like the Chinese, except to tell us how the latter are so much higher-IQ and more k-selected than the former.  And the HBDers got so hysterical about the Schettino incident while completely ignoring a subsequent similar incident involving Koreans.

HBD is thinly disguised yellow supremacism.  Race realism is race treason.

And one must give Forney credit for speaking out against The Land of the Gods. Who else in Der Movement does so?  All the Alt Right Yellow Supremacists would rather accept full-scale White extinction rather than critique China or muss one black, lank Chinaman hair follicle.

Watch this – when animalistic wop criminal savagery comes face to face with New England Yankee civility.  Fiction, yes, but in some ways reflective of reality. The Reed-Johnson Act had a point, of course. The Medicists need to admit that.

Read or listen to this.  Greg Johnson: Trump is a sincere man of genuine greatness.

Zman:

One possible reason for this is that the avenues for gaining male status have been cut off by modernity. Richard Spencer cleverly played on this to attract an audience of young males on-line. His “Faustian man” stuff was an appeal to the natural desire of males to accomplish great things. Ironically, it was just an attention seeking act by someone with no accomplishments. 

“No accomplishments” – one of the prerequisites for “movement” “leadership.”

…we now live in an age in which genuine merit has no value…

A perfect description of Der Movement’s ethnic affirmative action program.  Genuine merit has no value.  Ancestry (and phenotype) is everything.

Here we go again.  The affirmative action cases need to realize that their heroine Princess Tulsi Coconut supports reparations as well.

Odds and Ends, 1/24/20

Various issues.  In all cases, emphasis added.

Very cognitive, very elite.

Read this.

He is the intelligent man of action, the taciturn, unflappable Nordic explorer.

Yes, you know, like Magellan.  Note that Johnson originally wrote that for the Jew HBD Unz site.  Once again, the ethnonationalist-HBD-Nordicist alliance is on display.  Sallis: Always right.

Read this.

So if White Nationalists aren’t quite ready for politics, how do we prepare ourselves?

Assuming the conclusion. Nothing stops “White nationalists” getting involved right now in politics in a variety of ways – running for office in the right contexts, getting involved in the political campaigns of right-wing populists, etc.

We must identify the necessary conditions for becoming a political force. Then we must assemble those conditions, to the best of our ability. We must begin with things that we can do right now, and we must prepare ourselves to do harder things in the future.

Give dem “D’Nations.”  “Trevor Lynch” needs to go to the movies. Tickets are expensive.

Let’s begin with the obvious. If White Nationalism is going to be a political force, we need more White Nationalists.

That’s the type of sterling political analysis that justifies you guys funding Counter-Currents to the tune of $100,000 in the past year.

To change people’s minds, we need to know their minds. We need to understand the ideas and values of people who are already White Nationalists, and the ideas and values of people who might be converted to White Nationalism. Then we need to map out how to bring the latter into our camp. We also need to understand the ideas and values of our enemies, if we are to decrease their opposition to us. Armed with such knowledge, we could launch educational campaigns that would move us closer to our goals.

I’ve been saying for years that we need information, we need empiricism, and have advocated opinion polling and serious analysis to understand why people join, why others do not, and how we can retain the former and recruit the latter.  None of this is going to happen if large amounts of “D’Nations” money is being funneled to useless tragicomic Quota Queen affirmative action “leadership” losers.

One could argue, of course, that we have been doing a pretty good job without such knowledge. 

Only a grifting fraud would argue that.

Based simply on introspection and personal experience, a lot of us have become quite skilled at converting people. Furthermore, the rising traffic of various movement websites can be taken as testament to this success.

Absolute nonsense. Where are all these new recruits?  Does this “leader” actually “think” that “rising traffic” actually translates into actual followers?

But how much of this rising traffic is due to our outreach, and how much of it is due simply to the problems endemic to multiculturalism and globalization?

Most likely: Former – none, latter – all.  Let’s do the polling and find out.

How much is rising white ethnocentrism due to our persuasive pull, as opposed to the system’s dystopian push? 

Most likely: Former – none, latter – all.  Let’s do the polling and find out.

That is another question that we really need to answer if we are to become serious contenders for power.

How about opinion polling, instead of this?  It’s a zero sum game for the available money in Der Movement. Use it in a manner analogous to an intelligent investment, or waste it on “happy penguins.”  Your choice.

To do a serious study of the public mind, we need to create an institution, staff it with people with the necessary skills, and fund their studies.

To do such things, we need serious leadership, not a bunch of incompetent affirmative action grifters.

We also need some sort of institute to craft White Nationalist positions on public policy issues.

Hey!  I thought we had the NPI!  The Charles Martel Society!  What happened?

No matter what the outcome of the election..

Hey!  I thought that Greg thinks that “Trump is toast no matter what” and then the “race war” will kick in.

…we can emerge as the champions of the more than sixty million mostly white people who voted for Trump in 2016 and may show up again in 2020. Thus we should comport ourselves accordingly.

Thus: Scream “Kek!” while chugging gallons of milk.

It is fortunate that the 2020 election is a golden opportunity for presenting our ideas, since it is all we really can do at present. If we want our votes to matter someday, we need to start building the institutions necessary to turn truth into power.

Sure!  How to begin – dump the current “leadership” and elevate people to leadership based on their merit, ideas, abilities, and accomplishments, instead of them being of Anglo/Germanic/Scandinavian ancestry.

Yes, indeed, he is – a neurotic nitwit.

The Johnson Conundrum

The resiliency of Greg Johnson: An analysis of a skillful political actor.

Question: How has Greg Johnson not only survived various scandals and other embarrassments but emerged stronger than ever?

After the episode of the Pilleater Chronicles and its fallout and then the revelations about Polignano, folks like Forney were telling us (and this was nearly a year ago) that “Greg Johnson is finished” etc. The whole Forney-Friberg-Spencer anti-Johnson axis (that exists even though they may have squabbles among themselves; e.g., Forney being critical of Spencer) more or less adopted the line that Johnson and Counter-Currents were in terminal decline – “finished”- and  that there was no recovery from the scandals. These types were saying the same thing after Johnson was publicly humiliated by the HopeNotHate Hermansson infiltration, and his having Hermansson give the keynote address at a Counter-Currents meeting.  Then there was the Lewis infiltration.  Any one of these scandals would have been sufficient to delegitimize, perhaps terminally sink, another, less resilient, “movement leader.”  After each of these scandals, Johnson’s leading rivals in the Alt Right loudly predicted his imminent “movement” demise.

They were of course wrong, and Greg Johnson and Counter-Currents continues to go on strongly, raising money, continuing to be “big” in Der Movement – in fact, it is the Forney-Friberg-Spencer faction that seem to be in decline. If there has been any “victor” in the feud, it has been Johnson. Forney continues doing his thing but with very limited influence, Friberg apparently the same, and Spencer is reduced to wrapping himself in the Iranian flag and tweeting about his love life. On the other hand, the destructive Frankenstein monster that is Counter-Currents keeps on lumbering along, and it was Johnson who made international news after being arrested in Norway.  Johnson stands up there with Taylor and MacDonald as among the “Elders” of the (particularly, American) “movement”- I would argue that Greg Johnson’s power and influence within the “movement” has never been greater.

So, how has this happened?  How did Johnson emerge like a phoenix rising out of the ashes from these scandals to reach a pinnacle of influence, despite the scandals, and, perhaps just as importantly, despite the fact that Counter-Currents has displayed a shocking decline in quality, with the most moronic, superficial, hypocritical, pretentious, and juvenile crop of “writers” ever assembled at any one Far Right site?  Counter-Currents should be sliding into Majority Rights-style oblivion and irrelevancy, but, so far, unfortunately, the opposite is happening.

It would be instructive to examine why all of this is so. Such an examination will shed much needed light on Der Movement, and illuminate the underlying rot within that allows someone like Johnson to prosper.  After all consider – Spencer received more criticism, attacks, and disavowals because of the nonsense of Hailgate than did Johnson for the Pilleater and Polignano scandals, which were, at least in my opinion, far worse.

I don’t recall Taylor, Brimelow, and Devlin et al. publicly distancing themselves from Johnson over issues that are far more serious than Spencer acting like an immature jackass.


Some possible reasons for all of that include:

The affirmative action program.  The “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program is an important factor here. Johnson claims to be of English descent, of founding Old American stock, whose family has been in America since colonial days; he is also phenotypically Nordic.  Now, since Spencer himself is an Anglo-Germanic Nordic, and he has collapsed as an activist, having the proper ancestral (and phenotypic) bonafides is necessary but not sufficient.  One can have the “proper” ancestry and phenotype, but if they crash and burn completely, and are politically inept, nothing will help them. On the other hand, if Johnson was a wop or hunkie – or even possibly a “Nordish” mick – he would have not survived the scandals, regardless of anything else. Ancestry and phenotype are important factors here.

Lesson.  If you don’t have the “right” ancestry, forget about trying to have any influence in Der Movement. If you do have the “right” ancestry, then you really have to be incredibly inept and politically clumsy to fall from grace (e.g., Spencer).

Costs vs. benefits.  Let’s compare Spencer’s Hailgate to Johnson’s scandals with respect to the response (or lack thereof) of other “movement leaders.” I argue that “movement leaders” may well have had practical political reasons for disavowing Spencer while being silent about Johnson, through the weighing of costs vs. benefits.

Hailgate – although in and of itself petty nonsense – became national news because of the Alt Right-Trump connection and because of Spencer’s notoriety at the time, and because of the fact that the 2016 election results were fresh in everyone’s memory. The media leveraged Spencer’s poor judgment to attack other Alt Right leaders as “suit and tie Nazis.” This endangered the status, reputation, and money-making ability of various “leaders” and gave them a very strong motivation to publicly disavow and criticize Spencer. The benefits of disavowing Spencer were clear. What about the costs? These “leaders” probably considered Spencer an immature lightweight and judged that the costs of disavowing Spencer were minimal – Spencer would not, or could not, mount an effective counter-attack against them, and the supporters of these other “leaders” would be unlikely to withdraw support over their Hailgate criticism.

On the other hand, Johnson’s scandals have not been national news and have not directly impacted other major Alt Right figures. These others may have a moral and ethical obligation to criticize Johnson, but what do any of these types care about morals and ethics?  It’s a purely utilitarian consideration for them – there are little practical benefits for disavowing Johnson.  On the other hand, there are real costs. Johnson is a much more dangerous person than is Spencer, and more likely to mount an effective counter-attack. One could imagine Counter-Currents suddenly critiquing Amren over the JQ or once again saying Amren conferences are a waste, or critiquing VDARE’s taking so much “movement” money or once again criticizing Derbyshire, etc.  The same intensity that Counter-Currents focused on the likes of Spencer and Friberg would now be aimed at these other targets.  So, there’s a cost with no practical benefit, and issues of morals and ethics and character mean nothing.  So, these folks give Johnson a “pass” for things worse than what Spencer did.

Lesson. Morals, ethics, and character count for nothing in Der Movement and among “movement leaders.” It is all practical considerations of image, status, and “movement” politics, with a focus on assuring maintenance of supporters and supporter donations.  A well-connected person whose influence is feared by others of like standing can get away with more than someone like Spencer, who is more isolated and is not considered to have the gravitas to be a “heavy player” in the “game.”

The political game.  Johnson, for all his manifest faults, is very, very good at playing the political game – or at least as good as someone who has horrifically bad judgment and who likes feuding can be. Johnson inevitably ends up on bad terms with people in the “movement,” including former allies, but you’ll note that he typically only engages in one major feud at a time.  Former allies may become enemies, and sometimes, typically briefly, vice versa, but these twists and turns occur one at a time. He never engages in any major “two-front war.” Alliances are formed and broken, one feud is engaged in and won, former allies then become foes, new allies are recruited, etc.  Jorjani was used skillfully here – and that was as much the result of Spencer’s political clumsiness and it was Johnson’s skill at using people for just as long as he needs them to undermine his main foes. All these people are used and discarded as fits the agenda, with consummate political skill. As historical analogies, consider Julius Caesar using and discarding Pompey or Augustus doing the same with Marc Antony.  Or how Catherine the Great used and discarded “court favorites” (including lovers) to achieve power. Hitler used and the discarded various people during his rise to power – Eckart, Strasser, Rohm, etc.  One can consider how various organized crime figures rose to prominence through alliances, which they later discarded when it no longer suited them (often killing the former allies).  The Kennedys used Mafia connections to reach the White House, after which Robert Kennedy moved against these former allies. Then there’s the Hitler-Stalin Pact of 1939.  You get the picture.

Johnson is also good at “glad-handling” and having friendships with “movement” bigwigs that – for as long as they last before falling apart – provide a cushion of support and prevent those bigwigs from calling out Johnson’s faults. Taylor as an example.  Note that Johnson won’t call out Taylor for “being in bed with the press” (as I note here), while criticizing others. Note that Johnson now supports and attends Amren conferences despite telling us several years ago that attending such meetings was a waste of time and money (money being, of  course, better used for “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents).  Thus, in summary, despite his proclivity to feud, Johnson has still maintained friendly relations with a number of “movement” bigwigs, and that no doubt helps insulate Johnson from the consequences of his manifest failures and various scandals.

Further, whatever what actually happened, the actual “technics” of each accomplishment, the end result was that – if Polignano’s correspondence with Friberg can be believed – Johnson was able to remove Polignano as having any control over Counter-Currents. And John Morgan, originally with Arktos, has ended up with Counter-Currents.  Whether all of this was the result of Machiavellian plotting or just serendipity, one cannot argue with the results. Johnson has weathered all sorts of storms, out-maneuvered rivals, and has a firm control of the Counter-Currents “empire,” such as it is. He therefore is revealed as a reasonably savvy player in the game and art of “movement” politics.  Much better than the likes of Spencer, who, by contrast, is politically clumsy and inept.

Lesson. Being right is not enough to advance your position; being wrong is not enough to retard your progress.  Humans are essentially political animals, and in any grouping that has individuals vying for status and to advance their agendas, political maneuvering will be important.  Johnson is a savvy political operator and thus has not only survived scandals that would have wrecked other prominent activists, but he has prospered while his main rivals (e.g., Spencer) have fallen by the wayside. 


Should activists involved in Der Movement concentrate on such internal politics? The benefits are clear.  What about the costs?  There are costs of time and energy.  There is the mental costs; this can be exhausting, particularly for people who are by nature introverts.  Political maneuvering can always backfire. It also compromises, to some extent, honor and integrity, and, if it is noticed by others, can stain one’s reputation as an honest broker.

A cost-benefit analysis can be done. It depends on context.  An overt and public activist like Johnson has more to gain from politics than someone pseudonymous; however, pseudonymous activists can still benefit. Extroverts have it easier than introverts, but as long as they are not extreme and semi-autistic, introverts can still benefit from politics. The main thing is the affirmative action program.  An activist of Northwest European ancestry – particularly those of British/German/Scandinavian ancestry – can derive great benefit from engaging in “movement” politics since they have great potential for advancement and a rapid rise to leadership. On the other hand, activists of Southern (especially) or Eastern European ancestry  have little or nothing to gain since, regardless of how skilled they may be at the political game, their ancestry bars them from rising to the extent of those from more favored groups. Years of effort can be quickly wiped out by comments about “Moops and Mongols” and other manifestations of “movement” ethnic fetishism. So the relative costs and benefits in this case primarily vary based on their potential benefits, and that varies based on the ancestry of the activist in question. Now, in a truly pan-European movement, this factor would be eliminated, but perhaps there political maneuvering would be somewhat less important than it is in Der Movement.

The cabal and the alliances. Political connections go beyond just one-on-one relationships and include group alliances. There has been talk about a “homosexual cabal” in the “movement” – one that I was warned about as far back as the early 2000s.  There is also the HBD-ethnonationalist-Nordicist alliance. All these groupings, working behind the scenes, can provide crucial support for “movement leaders” who are well-connected.  On the other hand, people like Spencer, more isolated, and whose support is out-in-the –open and very shallow, have no deep support network that can provide a cushion in times of crisis.

Lesson. What goes on behind the curtain is often more important than what goes on in front of it.

The personal revelations. The personal revelations on the Pilleater tape did not have the effects that Forney, Friberg, and company thought, because it was basically an “open secret” in the “movement” for anyone who had a triple digit IQ, and anyone demanding “proof” was basically just engaging in obstructionism or were low-level idiots without any standing in the “movement.” Other aspects of that tape didn’t have much of an impression because things – such as bad behavior at meetings – have been rumored for a long time.  As far as Polignano goes and the revelations in that discussion with Friberg, who in the “movement” really cares about someone with a name like “Polignano” anyway?  Someone named “Johnson” screwing over someone named “Polignano” is a positive in Der Movement, not a negative.

Lesson. What people think is going to have a profound effect upon revelation may not do so, if the revelations are already suspected and/or known, or if the people hearing the revelation actually don’t think what they are hearing is really a bad thing at all.

Ideological flexibility.  Johnson maximizes support with remarkable ideological flexibility – what some would call inconsistency or even hypocrisy.  Johnson is a leading proponent of petty nationalist ethnonationalism – yet Counter-Currents publishes and promotes the work of Francis Parker Yockey and previously hosted some of my own essays promoting pan-Europeanism.  Counter-Currents has both promoted and criticized HBD, has both promoted and criticized Nordicism, has both promoted and criticized racial purity, has both promoted and criticized Amren conferences, has promoted both Traditionalism and Futurism, has White-Knighted as well as run the work of Devlin, Johnson has harshly criticized Derbyshire and then shared the stage with him at Amren – you get the picture.  This maximizes support and lets Johnson have a foot in different “movement” factions.

Lesson. Being two-faced has its advantages.


Practical consistency.  The ideological inconsistency doesn’t bother the Type I retards that constituent the majority of Der Movement, since their own “ideology” is simply a mash-up of Kempian Nordicism, chugging gallons of milk, screaming “Kek!,” etc. Indeed, as stated, the inconsistency is an advantage to maintain appeal among “activists” who are a cut above the dimwit majority and actually do care about ideas, but themselves are still too dim too realize that Counter-Currents has been all over the board on a number of important issues.


More important perhaps is consistency in the practical realm.  Successful activists tend to be ones that consistently are associated with a particular project or group or organization of project.  Taylor with American Renaissance.  Johnson with Counter-Currents.  MacDonald with The Occidental Observer and his various books.  Pierce (and Strom, who has survived controversy of his own) with the National Alliance. On the other hand, the more unsuccessful activists, whose careers are less than the sum of their parts – Spencer and Duke for example – have a history of jumping from one failed project to another.  At some point, I lost track of all of the various groups that Duke formed, led for a few years, and then abandoned. There was the White version of the NAACP (NAAWP), then wasn’t there something called NOFEAR, then EURO, etc?  And that was after his Klan days and his foray into electoral politics.  Spencer has had his varied Alt Right websites sites and the Alt Right corporation, and all sorts of other podcasts and projects, jumping from one to another. All of this failure and inconsistency  does not inspire confidence. On the other hand, stability such as Johnson with Counter-Currents gives him an air of “competence” and is another reason he survives scandal better than Spencer.

Conclusion. This is by no means a comprehensive analysis, but touches upon what I see as some of the main reasons why Johnson has survived and prospered, while Spencer has imploded.  Of course, some of it is just better judgment – Johnson had the good sense not to be involved in Unite the Right.  But, still, comparing the flak that Spencer got for Hailgate compared to Johnson thriving after scandal begs for an explanation – that I have tried to supply.  As further events unfold, more such analysis may be forthcoming.


The underlying lessons here demonstrate the importance of political networking, and various non-merit attributes, in elevating and sustaining individuals in positions of prominence in Der Movement. They provide a blueprint for “activists” with the proper affirmative action-approved ancestral backgrounds to follow to effectively play the political game, and allow others to better understand how they are being “played” by the “leaders” they so blindly support.


Johnson is not going anywhere; he is seemingly here to stay. Although there are some in the “movement” who will never accept him, enough others will so as to ensure that he will be a force within Der Movement for years to come, barring any unforeseen circumstances. And it is difficult to imagine what such circumstances could occur that would dethrone Johnson from his “leadership” position. Given the previous incidents and scandals that have proven unable to do so. As we can see, Amren continues to peddle Johnson’s work. One can expect that Greg Johnson and Counter-Currents will continue to have a significant impact on racial activism and prove the predictions of Forney false.


In any case, we can hope this analysis provokes more discussion and debate and, perhaps, soul-searching among “movement” “activists” with respect to their “leadership.”
