It’s Not That Easy

The blind leading the blind.

Our buddy Silver writes about this essay:

I would urge readers unfamiliar with him to peruse his essay “The Preservationist Imperative,” which appeared in the June 1995 issue of American Renaissance. In that piece, McCulloch succinctly answers almost every ‘deep’ objection that opponents of separation throw up…

That was 23 years ago!  Thus, Silver neatly makes my point for me: all this wonderful work has achieved absolutely nothing in the full generation that has passed meantime.  “Movement” propaganda is an utter failure.  There are White activists today who weren’t even born yet in 1995, all this time has passed, and today the current level of discourse is Pepe, Kek, and chugging gallons of milk so as to annoy the NY Times and politically motivated population geneticists (note that I was right about that too – virtually all population geneticists are subjective, dishonest shills for leftist politics).

With all the mutual admiration society at TOO, and the delusional nitpicking over timetables, the elephant in the room is ignored – how fantastical and unrealistic it all is.  Peaceful, orderly separation is not going to happen.  Newsflash: even if you were able to convince a majority – the requisite large majority – of White Americans to support peaceful separation (and to get that large majority would require all those nasty allegedly “ethnocentric outer Hajnal” White ethnics Der Movement despises), peaceful separation would be insufficient.  Fact is that the majority of the world’s population believes it has an innate right to live in America, so what do you think Colored “Americans” think?  They all believe that they not only have the right to live in America, but live wherever they please, and that means with Whitey.  Separatism would be to be enforced, it will not be voluntary – and all the pie-in-the-sky optimists really know this, which is why they state that once “hearts and minds” are won among Whites, other races would not be able to resist.  Regardless of whether that last point is true or not, the implication is that there will be resistance.  Thus, the separation will not be peaceful and it will not be voluntary.  Thus, you have to “win the hearts and minds of Whites” for the more extreme necessity of enforced separation; in other words ethnic cleansing and possible race war.  Now, I agree that separation is necessary, so I’m not shying away from the consequences.  But that’s me – a Nutzi “lunatic” and an “outer Hajnal” nasty.  How you are going to convince the great unwashed of Cuck America to agree to all of that, while many of them today support deplatforming of “racists” and cheer Antifa attacks, is unclear to me. And it’s not only the masses, one has to convince elites, including White military officers and soldiers, who have become as cucked as the rest of White society, with adherence to “diversity” now a prerequisite for promotion. And then, if you achieve that, you have to deal with the Colored fraction of the US military.  Can the White portion – sufficiently awakened – defeat the Colored portion?  Certainly, no doubt, but we are not talking about some peaceful and orderly separation, enacted after an election, bloodlessly actualized via trucking people and their belongings around the country.  

We are talking about hard necessity (and I’m not even getting into the foreign policy implications – what’s China going to be doing when this is going on?  Will they allow their co-ethnics to be cleansed?). Again, I agree that the necessity is worth it, but I can tell you, with zero chance of being wrong, that the vast majority of Whites currently disagree.  All your decades–long efforts to convince them otherwise have failed.

So, perhaps, instead of debating about timetables, it may be more prudent to face reality and realize that the only way to have even the slightest chance of achieving your objectives will require a complete overhaul of the “movement”- an overhaul no doubt to be opposed by rent-seeking “leaders” desperate to preserve their sinecures.

The Sallis Challenge

See at end.

According to Tacitus’s biography of Agricola, the Silures usually had a dark complexion and curly hair. Due to their appearance, Tacitus believed they had crossed over from Spain at an earlier date.

“… the swarthy faces of the Silures, the curly quality, in general, of their hair, and the position of Spain opposite their shores, attest to the passage of Iberians in old days and the occupation by them of these districts; …” (Tacitus Annales Xi.ii, translated by M. Hutton)

Jordanes, in his Origins and Deeds of the Goths, describes the Silures.

“The Silures have swarthy features and are usually born with curly black hair, but the inhabitants of Caledonia have reddish hair and large loose-jointed bodies. They are like the Gauls or the Spaniards.”

An ancient European tribe with those physical characteristics?  Not Moops or Nigerians?  No, no, a thousand times no!  Tacitus – liar!  Jordanes – liar!  I suppose this all explains why Tom Jones was described by fetishists as a “Silurian type.”

Light reading for when you’re snug in your hobbit hole. Type I fairy tales, indeed.

Scalia was obviously a full-blooded Negro, without a drop of European blood in him.

I’m sure the gamesters will tell us to eat more meat.

Bur (sic) inexplicably, President Trump is on the wrong side of this race—evidence that his unquestionable transformation of the GOP into a National Conservative party still has a long way to go, not least among his own advisors.

Yeah, real “inexplicable” and all.  Or maybe Trump is just a fraud, like EGI Notes has been saying since 2015?  And what’s with “Bur?”  Is Brimelow not getting enough Shekels to proofread the articles going up on his site?  Do the writers not use spell check?  Was that supposed to be “But” or maybe, hey, Aaron Burr is making a political comeback?  Inquiring minds want to know!

Both sides are wrong: Zimmer is a pedantic fool, missing the forest for the trees, while Sailer is ignorant of basic science.  

Early Thursday morning this was posted at EGI Notes; later that same day:

Greg Johnson says:

October 18, 2018 at 1:27 pm

I want to thank Richard McCulloch for this thoughtful and gratifyingly positive review. As for the issue of the timetable for creating the ethnostate, that is a minor point of disagreement. As for my response to his criticisms, I can’t improve on Rob Bottom’sstatement above. Once again, thanks Richard.

“Thanks for giving me a positive review of my own book…”

And then, predictably, Silver re-emerges with his usual shtick:

Having Silver and Sunic in the same comments thread is amusing to any Majority Rights graduate with a long memory.  Silver defamed Sunic as an example of an “unassimilable” Balkanoid.  Meanwhile, the truth is that Tom is fine man, a good activist, as White as anyone else at TOO, and why he wastes his time associating with those people, I don’t know.

Anyway, what with all this mutual love-fest (excluding Tom of course, who isn’t “one of the boys”), none of these paragons of racial virtue and wisdom have yet noticed that the past 50 years of “movement” activism have accomplished nothing but failure, and all the rounds of mutual self-congratulation cannot alter the fact that their model of activism has failed, and their dogma is repulsing people, not winning “hearts and minds.”

This is the reality of life in America after 50 years of your activism.

“Most Whites have no racial identity…”  That’s their own friend Taylor saying it.

Winning hearts and minds!

Try something different?  Tap into different talent pools?  Not when it threatens egos and income!

Case in point: Der Movement’s cordon sanitaire around EGI Notes.  After all, Breezy Steve struggling with meiosis is of course more useful for activism than, say, a scientifically informed debunking of Lewontin.  After all, Sailer doesn’t threaten the status quo, or the flow of shekels, and that’s what’s important.

Note to rank-and-file: if your leaders really cared about “the White race” then they would make use of relevant material regardless of its source.  But they really don’t give a fig about the White race, and you and they really know it, don’t you?

So, I issue a challenge to the likes of Johnson, Spencer, Taylor, McCulloch et al. How about penning a post telling us two things:

1. What significant and concrete accomplishments toward society-wide White racial awakening have your efforts accomplished, and, similarly, what are the accomplishments toward that end achieved by other “activists” who share your ideological vision and overall approach?

2. Going forward, how do you expect continued efforts of your type to achieve your ethnostate/racial preservationist goals?  And for this, please don’t give vague platitudes or hand-waving about “metapolitics,” but instead a realistic and comprehensive appraisal for your optimism and your adherence to your specific approach.  And, while you are at it, please explain why your approach is superior to alternatives.

I’ll give your essay a fair hearing here, and will dissect and critique it (as I’ve been critiquing the “movement” in general here) – unlike your own (dare we say cowardly) ignoring of the critiques of your approach heretofore published here at EGI Notes (never mind your pathetic “banning” of critics from your own blogs).

SLC News: More December 2017

Several items.

There’s an old saying that when one’s opponents make errors, you should just sit back and let them do it, and I have actually been holding back on commenting on some things recently, for that very reason.  However, when things occur that are absolutely ludicrous, the cost/benefit ratio moves in the direction of shining a light on it.  Included in this in the remarkable decision of Counter-Currents to expend its political capital in Der Movement defending the likes of Lauren Southern.  We’ve reached new heights of “jumping Moby Dick” with this:

It is possible that this will be the dumbest piece of writing in the history of Counter-Currents. That’s not my fault. The subject matter is dumb, and it will be hard to rise above it. I’ll do my best, and because the subject matter is dumb, I’ll be brief.

Among the recent charges against Lauren Southern is the claim that she is a sex worker who poses in revealing clothing in order to encourage men to masturbate to her pictures. She makes money thereby, so she is in essence a pornstar, even though she doesn’t perform sex acts on camera. Her pictures are so sexually powerful that many men are compelled to masturbate. These beta-orbiters just can’t help themselves, and Lauren acquires money from the cyber-fapping that she encourages.

That may be good for page hits I suppose, but the damage it does to the intellectual credibility of that blog is stupendous.  It’s analogous to Majority Rights being discredited by allowing J Richards to post porno pictures of women with smiley faces cover their nipples.

That Der Movement has been actually reduced to debating the onanistic habits of those who waste their time watching YouTube videos of useless females is, frankly, astounding.  Not surprising to me, but, from an objective standpoint, still astounding.


Look at this (apparently now deleted) exchange (emphasis added):

I think we should focus on securing the existence of our people and a future for white children instead of writing essays of 1.200 words defending someone who isn’t one of us and is actively against White Nationalism.

Prove to me that you have done one concrete thing to help the white cause, beyond posting comments on the web.

Good work. Don’t waste any more time commenting here.


Johnson’s behavior is becoming increasingly erratic. The complete intolerance to any criticism is simply not normal, and not reflective of his behavior, say, five years ago.  

The last I looked, that exchange has now been deleted from the thread!  Instead, half the current comments are from Asians and lickspittle Asia-worshipers.  Remember this?  Do you still doubt that post’s accurate observation of your fearless leaders, who, in their almost pathological lack of self-awareness, are suffering from the same outgroup altruism and ingroup altruistic punishment that they decry in others?


Read the Curwen-Johnson exchange, consider it has been deleted, and carefully consider the consequences of a “movement leadership” that favors cunning Orientals and race-mixing mudsharks over genuine, sincere activists.  Consider the monumental hubris of people who cannot take the slightest hint of criticism and who state that they “fire” donors who have the temerity to ask that their donations be used for certain projects. 


A major difference between EGI Notes and Counter-Currents is this.  95% of the over-the-top rhetoric here is (as I’ve stated many times for the obtuse) for effect; I’m intentionally ridiculing the “movement” clownshow that I’m completely exasperated with after putting up with more than twenty years of nonsense (the other 5% is genuine outrage against the likes of Deasy and Munro).  Johnson, on the other hand, I believe is 100% serious when he bans people simply for having the temerity to disagree with him on something, when he talks about “firing donors,” and when he expends political capital defending low rent slutty airheads whose “hundreds of thousands” of followers likely mostly are what Weev says they are.  If it all were all really a joke, I would say “well done,” you’ve outdone anything I’ve ever played out.  But it’s not a joke.  It’s actually serious.

Chinese Nationalist Maiden writes:

Of course, I know that I have to be immune to criticism myself since people will try to alienate me from the White survival movement merely because I am (a) an Asian and (b) a woman. These accusations sound nonsensical to me. Being an Asian woman is irrelevant to me for believing that White survival is right. I support Whites on principle and I am disgusted with the tasteless liberal-democratic leftist and Marxist-Leninist hatred of White people. Denying Whites the right to live is just beyond disgusting and I cannot live in good conscience with myself if I did not support White survival.

The problem is when non-Whites promote their own racial interests while pretending to be part of the “pro-White cause.”  This disgusting and dishonest “Chinese Nationalist Maiden” is one of the worst.  Can she tell us precisely: in what country do you live?  After all, if you are so much in favor of White survival, you wouldn’t be living in any (majority) White nation now, are you?  Of course – of course! – you live in, say, Taiwan or Singapore, right?  Right?


Silver, of all people, has been mostly talking good sense on the comments thread of the anti-Romanian Amren piece.  Now, catch this reply to Silver from the author of that piece:


Silver: ‘Politically, something being true is not, of itself, reason enough to say it. Decisions about what to say have to be weighed against their likely impact on political objectives.’

Anti-Romanian Ingrate: This sounds a bit like the sort of thing you hear from the left: ‘We shouldn’t talk about race because it’s likely to have bad social consequences.’ One of the virtues of the right is that it acknowledges the existence of objective truth and allows more or less free exploration in the attempt to get at it. It’s in the spirit of the West to do so.


Excuse me, you anti-Romanian outrageous, filthy hypocrite, but if “One of the virtues of the right is that it acknowledges the existence of objective truth and allows more or less free exploration in the attempt to get at it. It’s in the spirit of the West to do so” then I ask:


WHY DOESN’T AMREN RUN CRITICAL ARTICLES ABOUT JEWS ANALOGOUS TO THE ONE YOU WROTE ABOUT ROMANIANS?  WHY WON’T THEY EVEN TALK ABOUT POPULATION GENETICS STUDIES BY ISRAELI RESEARCHERS THAT SHOW JEWS TO BE DISTINCT AND DIFFERENT FROM EUROPEANS?  WHY WAS THE HORNBECK PIECE ABOUT MACDONALD MODIFIED TO MAKE IT MORE PRO-JEWISH?

Newsflash: Selective “honesty” is just another form of dishonesty.  Hypocrites.

I will now give you the most important comment in the entire blog history of EGI NotesThe biggest impediment to the success of pro-White activism is Der Movement, Inc. itself.

Der Movement Roundup: 7/28/17

Der Movement marches on.

Someone gets it right

Trump is proving another theory correct: namely, that he is an incompetent and politically unreliable buffoon. He is not loyal to people who risk their reputations for him, and his promises are worthless. The wall isn’t going to be built, and Mexico isn’t going to pay for it.

I seem to recall someone on the Far Right labeling Trump a “buffoon” from the very beginning.  Who was that, I wonder?  Probably just some crazy and bitter nogoodnik who should be safely ignored.  Hail Pepe!  Hail Kek!  Hail the God Emperor!

Sailer channels Silver. Not a feather-in-the-cap for either one of them, I think.

Some confusion about branding.

The Alt Right “brand” was a White Nationalist entryist and outreach project from the very start. But the Alt Right worked best for White Nationalists by not being exclusively associated with White Nationalism. Normies would never try the Alt Right on for size if it were an exclusively White Nationalist movement….

At other times. we’ve been told by leading Alt Righters that the Alt Right IS White nationalism (and vice versa), an equation vehemently opposed by some on the Far Right who dislike the Alt Right brand.

The Alt Right has to be one of the most ill-defined political brands in American history.

Meanwhile, “watchdog groups” are crowing about the upcoming Amren conference that will be “electric” because of the co-attendance of Richard Spencer, the “reclusive” Greg Johnson, and Sam Dickson.  As always, the anti-White Far Left enjoys schadenfreude at WN expense.

Ignorant Buffoon Jr

Touchback Jr. 

I essentially agree with Spencer’s analysis.  Did Jr do anything illegal?  I don’t see it. Treason?  Absurd (*).  On the other hand, let’s not let him off the hook that easily.

The bottom line is that Trump Jr is as stupid and politically clumsy as his father. Do you go personally to this meeting?  Ever hear of plausible deniability?  How about using cut-outs? Or…whatever – if you are the son of a Presidential candidate who is vehemently opposed by the media and the entire Establishment, you had better at least superficially keep up appearances. Let others, several layers removed, do the “dirty work.”  It doesn’t matter that he did nothing wrong; in politics, appearance means as much (or more) than reality. Come on, Donnie Jr was on Celebrity Apprentice with dear old dad, doesn’t he know the power of appearance?

One thing Spencer could have mentioned – of all of Trump’s children, Don Jr seems the most right-wing and the most in tune with an at least Alt Lite right-wing populism, another reason to be targeted by the Deep State.

A side note: I’m certainly no phenotypist, but on the other hand, unlike what some of my detractors believe, I certainly do acknowledge the importance of racial phenotype (it just has to take a back seat to the genotype). This “Russian lawyer” – is she actually an ethnic Russian?  She looks like she could be ¼ or even ½ Chinese.  Raciology alert!  Maybe – hopefully – she is a non-Russian “Russian citizen.”

When all is said and done, Trump is an embarrassment.  Relevance to EGI? Thanks to the Alt Right, Trump’s civic nationalist phony right-wing populism has been connected in the public mind with Der Movement, so, like it or not, the outcome of the Trump Presidency will, in some manner, influence the direction of American activism.  Hopefully, we can all survive the damage being done by this lumbering buffoon.

In all honesty, the “crazy and bitter” Ted Sallis could do a better job as President.  Sallis in 2020!  Who should be my VP choice – Durocher or Silver?

*In the early 19th century, the US government was unable to convict Aaron Burr of treason, despite Burr’s plans (and activities) in attempting to establish an empire out of the USA’s western territories and Mexico (both to be seized by force).  Now, in the early 21st century, we are told that Don Jr’s meeting with Suzie Chopsticks to get “dirt” on Hillary Clinton (certainly low-hanging fruit if there ever was) is “treason.”  Yeah…who was levying war against the United States?  Who are the two witnesses to Don Jr levying war or assisting in such levying?  As Spencer points out, the USA and Russia are not at war.

Fair is Fair, 12/16/16

Celebrating some reasonableness.

I have been critical of Durocher in the past (and will no doubt be so in the future), but one must be fair, and I see nothing at all wrong with this – actually, I would strongly endorse most of it.  It is of course interesting that he chooses Radix – the site of Richard “Big Europe” Spencer – to promote this very pan-European vision, but never mind.

Of course, there are some commentators who are unable to distinguish a confederation of autonomous states from a “Roman Empire,” but then extreme ethnonationalists have never been a very impressive lot.  Who says Bavaria can’t have its own local autonomy?  The point is, without Europe, Bavaria is virtually meaningless on the world stage. Rest assured, China cares not one bit about the bucolic charms of various European locales (even though they may want to copy them in a bizarre fashion to make a buck), and would not hesitate to move against atomized micro-states.  And if “the people just want to be left alone” then why don’t they vote that way?  To start with, the Germans, including all those wanna-be autonomous Bavarians, can stop voting for Merkel and start voting for Alternative for Germany (putting aside why they never supported the NPD).

Further, not only has Durocher written a reasonable post, Silver has written reasonable comments to that post.  What’s the world coming to?  Anyway, fair is fair, I must encourage reasonableness as well as discourage unreasonableness.  I’m still very wary and suspicious, however.

In any case, I don’t see why a person cannot be, at the same time, a Bavarian and a German and a European.  Where’s the problem with that?

Spencer’s Speech, 11/22/16

Brief comments.

In isolation, nothing wrong with Spencer’s speech.  It was just the wrong place at the wrong time.  At a private meeting, at some other point in history, absolutely nothing wrong with it. But at a public, press-attended meeting, right after Trump’s election, with the media screaming for Bannon’s scalp, this was a bit of poor judgment.  Better to have put something together in more political-Salterian terms: democratic multiculturalism, universal nationalism, the legitimacy of majority interests, etc. I thought the whole point – or at least one major point – of the Alt Right was to be a more moderate “gateway” to hardcore WN. I’m skeptical of the “gateway” hypothesis, but if those guys believe it, better they publicly espouse democratic multiculturalism than do cheap NSDAP imitations.  Further, if you are going to “go radical” then why have the likes of Brimelow and Taylor around? Is there any strategy here, or just – as Der Movement would say – “LARPING?”

And about the leftist thug protestors – that happens at every rightist meeting, and at very meeting it seems like the attendees – and, worse, the organizers – are completely surprised and unprepared for it.  No one ever seems to think: “hey, these things have happened every time before, let us be prepared this time.”  If Der Movement doesn’t like my talk about affirmative action and quota queens then they have no one to blame but themselves.

Then we have this idiot “Ravi” (who Silver of all people effectively answered – fair is fair, I must give credit where credit is due):

Ravi • 2 hours ago

Children of the sun!! – what a load of tripe. So does this White Master race include Slavs as well? What about the Irish, Italians, Spaniards? What is a short, slit-eyed Vietnamese harlot doing in your ranks anyway? Is she white or yellow? So many questions – Do you even understand your own identity?

Let’s fisk:

Children of the sun!! – what a load of tripe

Why?

So does this White Master race include Slavs as well?

Yes it does.  No more and no less than any other European group.  Der Movement may not believe that but I, and others, do.

What about the Irish, Italians, Spaniards?

Yes, them as well.  No more and no less than any other European group.  Der Movement may not believe that but I, and others, do.

What is a short, slit-eyed Vietnamese harlot doing in your ranks anyway? 

A representative of the HBD faction?  Where was Derbyshire?

Is she white or yellow?

Yellow.

Do you even understand your own identity?

Yes, more than you can ever imagine.

Note again (assuming “Ravi” is a South Asian brownster) how hate-filled Asians are to Whites, how desperate Asians are to divide Whites against each other.

In the long-term, it’s the Yellow and Brown Peril from the East that is the biggest racial danger.
