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.

1. In cooperation with another Comrade, translating and publishing a considerable number of texts of H. Covington, whose works were totally unknown in the Spanish speaking world. Here is the blog (now more or less inactive due to personal reasons):
2. Translating (and publishing the next year) “Nietzsche His Life and Works” from Anthony M. Ludovici. The publishing house (Editorial Solar) is the same that published “Mein Kampf”, “The Protocols” and other important works in the Spanish speaking world.
3. Right now, I’m working in the translation of Nesta Webster’s “The Secret of the Zodiac”, to be published in the same publishing house.

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.

Zaida LHathaway • 15 hours agoBefore communism it was even worse in Eastern Europe: Slavs are incapable of producing anything of cultural value. Visit Poland or Romania and see the mess with your own eyes, as I’ve seen.
Independent Thinker Zaida • 10 hours ago“Slavs are incapable of producing anything of cultural value.”
Complete hogwash. Let’s see: The periodic table of elements – Mendeleev, discovery of the atmosphere of Venus, the Law of Mass conservation, demonstrating the organic origin of peat, soil, coal petroleum, etc, plus many other things — Lomonosov, Quantum electronics work leading to the development of the laser and maser (and Nobel Prize) — Basov, Laser and Maser development (also same Nobel Prize) — Prokhorov, involved in the invention of the radio — Popov, work in low temperature physics leading to Nobel Prize — Pyotr Kapista, Development of Soviet nuclear weapons — Kurchatov, founder of field surgery — Pirogov, Stability theory of a dynamical system — Lyapunov, Timoshenko Beam Theory — Timoshenko, work in radioactivity, radium, and polonium — Marie Curie (recipient of two Nobel Prizes), inventor of the polarographic method, father of the electroanalytical method, and recipient of the Nobel Prize in 1959 for his discovery and development of the polarographic methods of analysis — Heyrovsky, inventor of Yablochkov Candle and Transformer — Yablochkov, Kolmogorov, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Gogol, Chekov, Repin, Aivazovsky, Vastnetsov, Polenov, … too many to mention..
I will now give you the most important comment in the entire blog history of EGI Notes: The biggest impediment to the success of pro-White activism is Der Movement, Inc. itself.
