Race and Culture News, 2/8/17

Several items.

Here is an excellent podcast about David Lynch, whose body of work I also appreciate.

Here are two videos that well represent the Lynchian approach:

The defeated Democrat Presidential candidate unburdens herself, also discussed here. I have previously observed that the Left is unable to learn from the Trump election, and here we see it on display.  It hasn’t occurred to these folks – or more likely they do not care – that their anti-White-man identity politics was a major driver of Trump’s surprise victory.  Keep on bashing the White men and those men – and many White women married to White men – will become more and more bloc voters for the populist Right. The Left will not learn because they cannot learn, and do not wish to do so. Breezy Steve Sailer is correct: the Left is held together by their hatred of White men and so they cannot and will not accept the idea that they need to alter their approach and worldview to become more palatable to White men. So the much-needed division and balkanization will continue.

And another piece of evidence for the Left’s cluelessness: the idea of a “women’s strike.” Err…”ladies” – men do not want to be around hysterical SJW fatties and varied assorted blue-haired freaks and dumpy menopausal hags.  So, a “strike” is something that’s going to backfire, big time.

Speaking of Breezy Steve, one of his few good ideas is using the RICO laws against organized leftist thuggery.  Now’s the time, is it not?  With “God Emperor Trump” as President, and Sessions on track to become Attorney General, why can’t that be done? Why can’t the leftist thugs be declared a terrorist organization, as one online petition calls for? How about actually cutting Berkeley funds? Can Trump do something else than tweet in his bathrobe?


Fight Club

Der Movement’s empty soul exposed.

Fight Club has to rank – perhaps only after True Romanceas Der Movement’s favorite movie.  Before recently, I never saw it.  But, finally, I decided to watch it and see what all the fuss was about.

I shouldn’t have been surprised by how boring and stupid I found the film – pretentious, juvenile, moronic, shallow, so bad I almost shut it off multiple times but forced myself to finish it.  What absolute crap.  I shouldn’t have been surprised because that is how I view most of Der Movement these days – pretentious, juvenile, moronic, shallow, absolute crap.

So, my advice to serious racial nationalists – if you want to bore yourself to tears for more than two hours watch this train wreck of cinematic flotsam and jetsam.  And then wonder about a “movement” that considers such stupidity as some sort of life-altering high art.

Der Movement: Devoid of a soul, devoid of common sense, devoid of a higher calling, devoid of anything worthwhile of a higher humanity.

Danger From the Alt-Right

Co-option and loss of ideological diversity.

There has been concern in the Alt-Right about being co-opted by more mainstream, conservative, lukewarm, non-racialist elements.  I myself have been expressing concern that the WN Alt-Right faction can become co-opted by the anti-WN pro-Jewish and pro-Asian HBD Alt-Wrong faction.

But I see an even larger, more fundamental concern: that White racial nationalism in general will become subsumed (co-opted?) by the Alt-Right, that the diversity (if I may use that word) of racial nationalist thought will become homogenized by Pepe the Frog, Trump as God Emperor, “game,” HBD race realism, juvenile snark, undercuts, and all the other memes characteristic of the broad Alt-Right.  The wider range of WN thought and ideology will become buried under the pop-culture Alt-Right, and those who do not “join the fun” will find themselves marginalized.

I for one am not of the Alt-Right, and although I cannot speak for anyone else, I do not see, for example, someone like Strom fitting in, nor Duke. If Pierce and Carto were still alive, I doubt they’d consider themselves part of the Alt-Right as well.

Some may say: so what?  After all, it is natural selection and competition at work; if the Alt-Right is more successful, if it takes up the “far-Right” niche space, then that is quite proper. Stop complaining!

The problem is that – besides the obvious concern of “not putting all your eggs in one basket” – being successful is not enough.  One needs to be successful and also right.  And it is not clear that the Alt-Right approach – regardless of the attention (briefly) showered upon them by Hillary’s malevolence, Trump’s “coattails,” and the enthusiasm the millennial social media crowd seem to have with Pepe and flip snark – is the right approach. It is not clear whether Alt-Right attitudes, ideologies, strategies, and tactics are, in the long term, correct.

Being popular does not make one right – doesn’t the position of WN in today’s degenerate culture illustrate that well enough?  If the popularity of racial liberalism in the broader society does not make such liberalism right, then the popularity – based as it is more on superficial style than on deep ideology – of the Alt-Right in Der Movement does not make the Alt-Right approach right either.

Then we have the problem of what I would call “double co-option.”  That is: if Der Movement is co-opted and subsumed by the Alt-Right, and if the Alt-Right itself is co-opted by the HBD Alt-Wrong, then White Nationalism becomes effectively replaced by a cult worshiping Jewish and Asian IQ. This need not be immediately overt and obvious, a shallow facade of cardboard racialism could be put up as a front, with the ironclad edifice of Jewish/Asian supremacy setting the agenda just behind that facade and manipulating all the “latrine flies” against their own racial interests.  That is not far-fetched if you consider that the described scenario represents what is already going on in certain precincts of the “movement.”

All of this bears close watching, close monitoring.  I would advise a double strategy: on the narrower, intra-Alt Right level, the WN Alt-Right needs to fully and definitively separate from the HBD Alt-Wrong.  On the broader “movement”-scale level, there needs to be a critical mass of quality activists who remain separate from the Alt-Right (although there may of course be cooperation between these activists and the hardcore WN Alt-Right action).

If that doesn’t happen, I fear that all the eggs in that basket of deplorables will end up being clones of Humpty Dumpty.  And we’re all headed for a great fall.

More Stupid Comments From Silver, 8/10/16

More stupidity.

Keeping in mind I’ve extensively written about comic books for Counter-Currents (and have mentioned comics here as well), the following should be considered as expected:

silviosilver ✓ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ ˢᵘᵖᵖᵒʳᵗᵉʳ Laguna Beach Fogey • 2 hours agoThe whole idea of Batman – and superheroes/supervillians in general – is so juvenile in conception, and so thoroughly divorced from reality, that it’s utterly pointless to attempt to distil profundities applicable to the real world from it. The only grown-ups who care about it are those who look back fondly on their pre-teen escapism. Discussing it as though it were serious art is preposterous.

Let’s see now:

1. I’m not sure that the people talking about, or writing about, comics believe they are “serious art” (a straw man argument), but, like it or not, comic books and their cinematic spin-offs are part of modern popular culture (the movies alone are high money makers attracting large international audiences) and as such influence people in ways that can be positive or negative with respect to race. Themes in comics and comic movies are no less useful topics of discussion for meaning as any other media form.
2. Divorced from reality? Is religion any different (keeping in mind that in one of his endless chameleon-like incarnations, Silver at Majority Rights was claiming to be a Christian)? On the superhero side we have the Heaven team, complete with the omnipotent Big Daddy Sky God and his son Jesus, who, you know, walks on water, returns from the dead, cures illnesses and raises the dead, and all sorts of really reality-based powers like that. They have their horde of angels, including “archangels” equipped with nifty swords and horns, to fight the dastardly supervillains from Hell (who have their own powers, origins, and agendas). Don’t forget the saints, real life miracle workers who have lived among us (as did Jaysus, praise the lord!). Discussing all of that is, like, all preposterous and stuff. 
3. Hey, do you want to really discuss something juvenile and preposterous? Here’s the topic: Donald Trump, the preening, retarded buffoon who is literally worshiped by slavish “movement” and “game” fans of the “God Emperor.” Little Silver, riding the crest wave of “movement” Trumpomania by affixing “Trump supporter” to his stupid posts – it is utterly pointless to expect any useful comments from that consistent fraud. 
4. Consistent with point 3, I’m amused by Silver’s latest incarnation at Radix as the tough-talking, “passionate” Trump supporter, using racial slurs while those with long memories recall Silver at Majority Rights lambasting the “racists” for their irrational passion and their “stupidly counter-productive” use of racial slurs. Well, you know, for the latest blog infiltration, gotta ride that crest wave of Trumpish vulgar buffoonery! There’s a limited shelf life on that, so make hay when the sun still shines, as they say! 

Meet the New Iron (Wo)Man

That is, if you want to refer to Negresses as “women.”

I know many in Der Movement would say “big deal” but this is another case of cultural racial displacement, another example of the utter contempt felt by elites (if one can call comic book writers, artists, and executives “elites”) toward the White masses.  Indeed, given that the major consumer of comics are White (beta/omega) males, this whole push to “diversity through displacement” is bizarre. Even betas and omegas are likely to be turned off by the loss of decades-old entrenched characters, and by their replacement by “people of color” that the readers cannot identity with.  More to the point, the idea of a genius Negress building a Iron Man suit at MIT is doubly ludicrous.

By the way, the reader may be interested to learn that the storyline of the arch-cuck Captain America secretly being a neo-Nazi “Hydra” agent was recently shown to be a manipulation by the Red Skull. You see, the evil kraut has polluted the mind of the pure-as-gold cuckhero Steve Rogers through the dastardly use of a “cosmic cube” (absurdly manifesting as a young girl – sex diversity even for inanimate objects!).

The best riposte to all this trash from Marvel (Including the Black version of Captain America, the Korean Hulk, and the PMS-tampon-wielding female Thor) is economic: boycott those titles, or even boycott Marvel as an entire company.  Hit them in the pocketbook, although they are so rabidly SJW they’d probably accept poor sales to advance their social agenda.  And a vicious agenda it is – for as commentators have pointed put, if they want more “diversity” why don’t they just invent new colored/female characters instead of pointedly replacing White males?

The Politics of Comic Books

Another sign of decline.

Comic books are certainly not high culture by any means, but I’ve written about comics before, since they, as part of modern pop culture, reflect the memetic prison society our masters are constructing around us.

Comics have been in decline for a long time, and are part of the Cultural Marxism infecting what used to be the West.  We have characters who are homosexual, we have previously White male characters becoming female and/or minority (*), and now the leftist tilt has comics directly and indirectly attacking the Trump campaign and Trump supporters.

Even more bizarre, Captain America – that symbol of SWPL liberalism, the anti-Nazi, pro-colored, proponent of civic nationalist democracy, that bastion of tolerance and brotherhood – has been uncovered as a secret agent of “Hydra” – a fascistic totalitarian organization, founded by Nazis, bent on world conquest (**).  Captain America has been the symbol of the liberal vision of America since WWII, and his phenotype and character used to well represent the Midwest cucks rejecting Trump.  That he is now being used as a vehicle to “expose” and ridicule the alleged “White racism” behind White folks voting their interests is quite remarkable.  Comics have fallen straight into the toilet of virulent anti-Whitism; the mask is off, and there is no turning back.

The decline of comics is also manifested in their quality, independent of their politics. Sometime in the 2000s, a style of art infected comics, particularly the Marvel brand, that is quite simply childishly atrocious.  Some months ago, for example, I saw an issue of Daredevil that looked like it was drawn by a spastic 10 year old with Down’s Syndrome.  And the writing is not much better. Forget about the politics – the actual raw product is so markedly inferior to that of the so-called “Silver” and “Bronze” ages that it is laughable. It’s as if they’ve given up all pretense of putting together quality fantasy entertainment and are just churning out cheaply-made political pamphlets. Lee and Kirby were Jews, but they were adults and produced quality material.  The Gentiles of that time – Thomas, the Buscema brothers, Ditko, Conlan, Tuska, Romita, etc. – were adults who created adult-level material (even if for children). Today, it seems like the material is produced by “feel the Bern” hipsters and affirmative action minorities, who churn out low-quality trash in between going on social media or attending a Sanders rally.

It’s pathetic.

*A Negro took over as Captain America, and is still posing as such after the real one (the White Hydra agent) returned to action. Thor is now a woman, and – no doubt to the delight of the HBDers – the Hulk is now Korean.

**Perhaps it will be eventually revealed that old Cap is just infiltrating Hydra, to show how a real American must reject such “hate.”  But what if he is sincere?  The message from Marvel – all White man, particularly if they look like Steve Rogers the all-American Nord, are closet “Nazis” and “haters.” We’ll need the Black Cap and the female Thor and the gook Hulk to set things straight!

In the News, 5/23/15

Recent news.
NEC filth demand “White classmates” in the Netherlands.  This is, for the Left, the great paradox of White Racism and White Privilege.  You see, Whites are such terrible people, racist haters, pampered and privileged, so “non-vibrant,” and so much into abusing the poor and defenseless people of color. And yet, when Whites flee from diversity, the Coloreds can’t run after them fast enough. What is this all about? Why is the Colored Man so masochistic?  You’d think that if Whites were so terrible, that the Colored would be over-joyed to be rid of them. But, in reality, Coloreds will risk their lives to migrate to White lands, Coloreds demand integration with Whites at every opportunity, Coloreds take to the streets to demand that their “vibrant” children interact with plain white bread European children. The paradox is built into the story itself – complaints about “Dutch racism” together with the fervent demands to have as many of these Dutch haters around as possible. Never mind the curious fact that there are so many immigrants there to begin with despite the native population being so very racist. But, alas, the truth is quite the opposite: the natives are weak and spineless pushovers who allow themselves to be bullied by demanding brownsters and guilt-ridden by leftist bullying.  Leucosa, once again…
Negro actor whining about “backlash” over his casting in a role which has been depicted as a blond Nordic for the past 50+ years in the comics.  Blame the leucosa Whites for this. Who’s going to be buying tickets to watch the movie?  Dumb Whitey.  Can’t they just stay away?  Let the production crash and burn with low sales. But, no. We can predict: a very successful and lucrative production it will be.
More mainstreaming failure.  Orban is caught between a rock and a hard place. No matter his attempts at mainstreaming, the System considers him a “fascist dictator.”  On the other hand, he is losing popularity to Jobbik, which is further to his right. Orban’s only chance is if Jobbik stupidly mainstreams themselves to become Orban clones, which it seems they are doing.  There’s open space on the right, space which could attract popularity, if only leaders would seize that position. And all of this is not inconsistent with Whites as an inferior leucosa race.  After all, in the past, Whites were different, and it is possible that if leadership were to stake out a claim to the far-right in an uncompromising position, Whites may start reclaiming their manhood.  The lemmings just need someone to point them in the right direction, the sheep need to become wolves again.  Giving people HOPE  – and that hope is on the ultra-far-right – will ultimately prove more politically popular than weaselly mainstreaming.
Nixon asked a question. We do know the answer, don’t we?
Is there an innocent explanation for this? No, there is not. The actual explanation is here.  Really, Whites, if they are to act like men, need to stand up to all of this. Any healthy race would have long ago stormed the ramparts and made the French Revolution’s “terror” look like a stroll in the park. Well, Whites need proper leadership.  And they will not get that leadership from mainstreamers.
Also, looking at all this, one can understand why Black militants are often anti-Jewish. These Negroes know how they are being used as weapons in someone else’s war.  Jews care about Blacks the same way a soldier cares about his rifle: purely instrumentally. It is a weapon of war, a weapon to be wielded against one’s enemies.  Once it’s not needed, it’s put away and forgotten. Negroes should remember that.
