Meet Shah Jorjani

Madness.

Let’s take a look at some “movement” stupidity from several weeks ago.  I’ve been busy with the DifferInt analyses over the past few weeks, but will get around to evaluating Der Movement’ s more recent antics when I have the time.

We can start with the following.

Since Greg Johnson quoted excerpts from Jorjani to, I presume, take another swipe at Spencer, let’s take a closer look at some other points Jorjani has to make.  When you read this, please remember that Jorjani has been taken seriously by BOTH Johnson and Spencer; he’s spoken at Counter-Currents events, and he was high in the councils of the Alt Right corporation (never mind Arktos).

….Croatia is a part of Iranian civilization. During Tito’s rule, which imposed a Slavic identity on all of Yugoslavia, scholars were actually prosecuted, imprisoned, and even tortured for researching and writing about the Iranian origin of the Croatian people. Specifically, they are part of the Scythian branch of Iranians – cousins of the Persians who rode deep into Europe.

Yes sir, Croatians are actually Iranians with a dastardly fake Slavic identity.  No doubt – no doubt whatsoever! – population genetics studies will place Croatians right there with Iranians and distant from those alien Balkan Slavs!  And if such studies don’t yield that result, then, by golly, it’s the ghost of Tito imposing an anti-Promethean contamination, falsifying the genetics!

Steve Bannon was known to be a reader of Arktos books and Michael’s plan was to send me into the White House to cultivate a relationship with Bannon, and through him, to influence President Trump. My main reason for wanting to have such influence was to help determine Iran policy.

As the Iron Sheik used to say, “Iran number one!”

…the funding for a capital investment that would have established me as the majority shareholder of the Alt-Right Corporation…

Very, very, very carefully consider the ramifications of this delusional Persian supremacist intimately involved with the Alt Right, a “movement” ostensibly representing the interests of indigenous Europeans.

This is about the reorientation of the trajectory of geopolitics in the Middle East, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. It is about aborting a Renaissance of the Persian Empire…

And at the heart of this world historical mission is…Jorjani.

Except that we are not Germans. 

No, you’re not.

Through the Scythians (i.e. the Saxons) and the Alans, we lent the Germans and Goths our Faustian (i.e. Zoroastrian) genius and chivalric spirit but those northern Barbarians never understood the essence of our cosmopolitan humanism.

Err…isn’t “cosmopolitan humanism” the very thing all the grand “traditionalists” of the Alt Right allegedly oppose?  Cosmopolitan humanism?  What would Evola think? Savitri Devi?  Oh, the Kali Yuga of it all!  The men who can’t tell time!  The Age of Iron!  Oh Guenon, where are thou?

Al-Ahwaz and a Kurdish nation have nothing but Sunni fundamentalism and barbaric tribalism to offer the world, whereas our Persian civilizational heritage has not only held Iran together for centuries it has, repeatedly, offered all of humanity the best chance at forming a world order based on innovation, compassion, and social justice.

Social justice?  I guess that goes along with all of the “cosmopolitan humanism.”  How about multiculturalism?  The wonderfully cosmopolitan Persian Empire was multicultural, no?  Let’s have the Alt Right fight for multicultural cosmopolitan humanist social justice!  

We know that you do not really have a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” You are oppressed by a rogue dictatorship. Rest assured that after we liberate ourselves and secure our future, we will bring the ever-living fire of true freedom to your bountiful continent as we once brought it to Greece. Far be it from us to leave your resistance movement in the hands of the Alt-Right or comparable culturally impoverished and regressive reactionaries. We are coming to save you, America. So speaks the living spirit of Xerxes, King of Kings, Light of the Aryans…

Once again, both Johnson and Spencer think/have thought that this Jorjani is someone that needs to be seriously listened to, someone who needs to be high in WN councils.


The essential problem here, I believe, is the strong need, the strong desire, the strong craving, of the Far Right for affirmation and approval.  And when such affirmation and approval comes from someone with some sort of credentials, such as Jorjani’s academic status, then the craving becomes too intense to resist.  Caution is thrown to the winds, which is one major reason that the Far Right is so easily infiltrated, betrayed, hobbled by defectives, and infested with all sorts of bizarre flotsam and jetsam.  Further, since most in the Far Right lack any sort of formal scientific training whatsoever, they are unable to distinguish between what’s valuable and what’s not (hint: the HBD cult falls into the latter category).  Therefore, someone with a solid scientific background would have been less apt to become impressed with Jorjani’s esoteric techno-babble, and would have looked with prudent skepticism on taking anything else the fellow had to say seriously.

When oh when will the Alt Right darkness be dispelled from the land so that sane racial nationalism can come into the light?

In Der News: 11/3/17

News, news, news.

So, how’s that ethnonationalism working out for you?  Emphasis added:

Pro-Brexit leaders like Nigel Farage and Daniel Hannan have hinted that after free movement from Europe is stopped, they want to open the doors to the world, and they don’t just mean in terms of trade. Politicians like these two seem to be very enthusiastic in promoting immigration from the former Colonies of the British Empire like India. The reason for this is that they believe, quite stupidly, that Britain has more in common with its former third world Colonies than the White countries of eastern Europe.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan of mass migration, whether it is from White countries or non-white countries. The mass movement of people has always had negative effects and has always disproportionately impacted the working class. However, I am slightly perplexed by the hatred shown towards eastern European immigrants by normie-white British people, who also seem to show a rather laissez-faire attitude to their non-white neighbors.
I guess they simply are the clearest example yet of why civic nationalism is such a joke.
It would be ironic then, that if by freeing themselves from the European Union, British nationalists may actually succeed in making their own people’s demographic situation worse.

Yockey was right.  Narrow ethnonationlism is race treason; it’s treason to the West and our High Culture.

Hey, Roissy, how’s your God Emperor doing?

Outstanding comment:

It appears that the Trump administration has appointed antifa the national arbiter of who gets free speech on gov’t property and who does not.
NPI has had 4 or 5 successful conferences in the Reagan Building since its first there in 2011. I attended three. There has NEVER been ANY violence from NPI attendees. On several occasions there was violence outside the building by antifa, but it was contained.
Before each conference, antifa has threatened to disrupt the event. Even under Obama, the federal gov’t would not allow the threat of violence to shut down the NPI conference. Under Trump, that’s no longer the case.

Trump is President and Sessions is Attorney General, while Antifa runs wild in the streets with impunity, and Trump signs documents pledging to fight “dem raciss.”

But oh boy, he really knows how to “neg” folks, what an alpha he is!

The Far Right needs its own private property.

Spencer is correct about “Americana” here.

Vanguard movement?  Yes.  Nazi imagery?  No. A place for uniforms?  Yes.  Spencer has been making good sense recently; jettisoning Jorjani may have helped.  Addition by subtraction. Get rid of the jackassery as well.  “The European uniform” – yes. A flag?  What about the Legion Europa symbol – a Greek “L” and a runic “E?”   Er…Pepe?  Please, no. Overdoing the meme war…dear god yes.  Please stop it.

Transatlantic Pact Number Two

More (rare) mature Alt Right discussion.

Another good Transatlantic Pact podcast.

First, I note that Spencer sounds a lot better when he is on a more serious podcast like this, as opposed to the more American Alt Right Beavis-and-Butthead podcasts.  This supports my contention that Spencer would be much better off, and more influential, if he’d jettison the worst, most juvenile, aspects of the American Alt Right.

So, yes, let’s talk about the conditions of the Alt Right and the “optics”- “tough love” and “take your medicine.”  So, when is the Alt Right going to take seriously concerns of activists like myself? None of these guys want to engage with our ideas, with the previous generation of activists and the experiences those people have had and the wisdom (if I may use that word) accumulated from such (bitter) experiences.  Some of us could have warned you about Jorjani, for example, saving you a lot of time and trouble (and really bad optics).  Related to that, it would be helpful for the Far Right to have input from people with a genuine scientific background; in that way, perhaps you guys wouldn’t have been bamboozled by Jorjani’s ramblings, and you also wouldn’t get taken in by HBD pseudoscientific flim-flam.

On the positive side, in this podcast, Spencer makes an excellent defense of the general pan-European concept, and the need to eschew stupid, petty nationalism, as promoted by unhinged ethnonationalists.  So, I fundamentally support Spencer in the memetic struggle between Pan-Europeanism (a position I have been promoting for twenty years) and narrow ethnonationalism.

I’d like to point out that there is a difference between national socialism and “Nazism.”  The first is a political philosophy, a way of organizing society; the second is a historical manifestation of national socialism reflecting hyper-divisive German ethnonationalism.  True, many “movement” Nutzis really are Germanocentric Nazis, but’s let’s not confuse national socialism – which could be for the Poles as well as for the Germans or for any other Europeans – with Nazism.

Racial nationalists wanting to have conferences in Europe do need to rethink their strategies, agreed. I’m not sure how to proceed, not exactly knowing the situation on the ground in Europe, so I’m not going to give empty advice.  If I come up with any ideas in the future I’ll post it. 

The American government banning Andrew Joyce: that’s Donald J. Trump as the head of the government. Isn’t that ultimately true?

Spencer’s comments on Ramzpaul – agreed.  Spencer’s comments on swastika flags – agreed again.  “First, do no harm” – good sense. Racial activism needs to avoid both extremes of “purity spiraling” – agreed as well.  Vanguardism important – yes. Avoiding Manichean extremes, yes again. Avoiding past, expired memes – yes.

I’d like to make one minor point.  While swastika flags genuinely have nothing to do with America, uniforms and “Roman salutes” certainly do.  What about the Silver Shirts? What about the fact the military and para-military units throughout history – including American history – have always worn uniforms?  And I’ve been told by older relatives that schoolchildren used to salute the American flag with a “Roman salute” – and that this practice faded away during/after WWII (for obvious reasons).  So, I’ll agree that in public rallies, such salutes (for now) should be avoided, but there is nothing inherently wrong or “un-American” about the “Roman salute” – and there’s nothing wrong with such in private and, eventually, in public as well.

And how does one classify chants of “blood and soil?”  

And if one really wants to (1) be a revolutionary vanguard and (2) at the same time reaching out to Whites in general, perhaps you need to rethink the whole Beavis-and-Butthead White nationalism model, and also let the moronic “Pepe-Kek” nonsense fade away.

Of Cucks and Men

Something positive about the Alt Right.

I have been critical of the Alt Right, including Spencer, when called for, and will continue to do so (something about the latest Jorjani fiasco will be out soon).  But the converse is true as well: when these guys do something right, I’ll support them.

Even though the Florida speech didn’t go down in an optimal fashion, nevertheless, giving these speeches – or attempting to – is a good idea, and I have to give Richard Spencer credit for putting himself out there, physically, taking risks, speaking truth to power, and defending his people.  

Whatever else one can say about him, Spencer is a man, contrasted to mewling pathetic cucks like John McCain or George W. Bush (whose wife, in my opinion, should be indicted for murder for what she did in high school).

As for the scum in the Florida crowd, shouting Spencer down, I say this: Like it or not, the Far Right is here to stay. I don’t like the Alt Right nor the “movement” as a whole, but I do acknowledge that we are, broadly speaking, on the same side, and I certainly fully support Spencer in his quest to get racial nationalist ideas a fair hearing.

Now, I think he’d be more successful if he’d cut ties with the juvenile jackassery of the Alt Right, and not deal with the likes of Jorjani again, but I realize that when I give advice to the “movement” it goes in one ear and out the other.

Regardless, I’ll give credit where credit is due.

Legacy of Spies

Book review.

I have previously written about George Smiley in Le Carre books, and how it applies to my criticism of the “movement.”  I may as well make a brief statement about the latest (likely, last) Smiley book, Legacy of Spies.

I would give this book, at most, three stars out of five; it is a pale and weak successor to masterpieces like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Smiley’s People.  An insipid story premise, a flaccid structure and pace, and, finally, an ending that comes to no real conclusion whatsoever. Not good at all.

From a nationalist perspective, at the end of the book, Smiley (who must be over 100 years old at this point), is revealed as an anti-Brexit Europhile.

Now, one can be an anti-Brexit Europhile from the Far-Right, like Richard Spencer, but that’s not what we are talking about here.  Cornwell/Le Carre is a leftist, and so Smiley’s Europhilism is that of Angela Merkel, not that of Richard Spencer or of Francis Parker Yockey.

All in all a mediocre book, and one not compatible with European EGI.

The book does tie up two loose ends from the aforementioned previous Smiley books (no spoilers): the fates of Karla and of Jim Prideaux (including a definitive statement as to whether Smiley/Guillam knew Prideaux killed Jim Haydon and their opinion of that).

The Alt Fail

Navel-gazing ideological contortions.

One wonders how Andrew Joyce squares his recent series on homosexuality (*) with this expression of tolerance.

It would seem that AltRight.com’s current crusade against homosexuality is to a large extent informed by their feud with Counter-Currents.  But let’s give the other side equal attention.  Greg Johnson’s crusade for ethnonationalism, and crusade against pan-Europeanism, which came as an unpleasant surprise to me (who considered him to have been a pan-Europeanist), mysteriously coincided with the deterioration in his relations with Richard Spencer.  Memes in the service of personal animus, it seems.

Feuds between “movement” leaders is a “grand tradition” – one can remember Pierce-Carto and Pierce-Covington, but in those cases, the disagreements were personal/tactical.  The situation in which “movement leaders” actually take ideological stands on important issues merely to spite each other is totally unprecedented.  Yes, it seems that “youth culture” is indeed a key component of the Alt Right scene: narcissistic, feckless, and juvenile.

On a related note (emphasis added):

However, more important is understanding how a far-right movement operates, organizes and functions. This is invaluable for finding the most effective strategies for opposing and undermining them. I spent hundreds of hours with these people and came away with a real understanding of what drives their activism, the tactics they seek to use, and what they were planning to do. This allows Hope Not Hate to always be one step ahead, and to plan responses and opposition earlier than anyone else.

But don’t forget…the problem is not with the outrageously irresponsible, feckless, imprudent, failed leadership that allowed an effeminate homosexual anti-racist infiltrator to joyride through the “movement” for a year with a tragicomically flimsy cover story while legitimate activists were frozen out of meetings because of “extreme vetting.”  No, the problem is with anyone who states that there should be some accountability for this pathetic failure of common sense and good judgment – or so say our “betters” among “movement leadership.”  I guess when faced with the possibility of the panhandling donations running dry, hysteria ensues.  Too bad they weren’t more hysterical with basic operational security.

*Before someone accuses me of being “queer,” I’ll say I’m in general agreement with Joyce (excepting the Christian apologetics and the idea that Tacitus was a historian in the modern sense, instead of in the ancient sense – a story-telling propagandist), but more nuanced.  However, my view remains that if someone is homosexual but is pro-White, and if they acknowledge that homosexuality is a defect, and if they “stay in the closet,” then tolerance could be given.  In On Genetic Interests, Salter asserts that homosexuals should actually be very pro-extended family and pro-ethny, given they have a greater genetic interest investment in broader circles of relatedness, as most of them do not have children of their own.  If a homosexual actually behaved in that fashion (most do not, including some “anti-natalists” masquerading as WNs), then some degree of societal tolerance could be acceptable.  That doesn’t preclude personal disgust and the acknowledgment that overt homosexuality, celebrated by society, has the pernicious effects described by Joyce.

Spencer Video: 9/20/17

Good video.

Watch this.

I agree, petty nationalist ethnonationalism is a zero sum game, and ethnonationalists really do not understand how their vaunted “sovereignty” is guaranteed by other, larger powers.  In a future ethnonationalist Europe, who will guarantee the sovereignty of, say, Estonia?  Yes, I guess Estonia could develop their own little nuclear arsenal (*), but, really, the existence of an ethnonationalist Estonia would be guaranteed by whatever security arrangements exist among European states, which means they would give up some sovereignty for a collective defense arrangement.

Also, Spencer’s overall take on foreign affairs is simply good common sense.  It’s a shame Spencer is wasting himself with the Pepian Alt Right jackasses.

*Actually a good idea.  I’m a pro-proliferationist.  More nuclear weapons – at least in the hands of sane states – can help keep the peace.  And each nation that has such weapons should be upgrading, not downsizing.  The American trend of fewer such weapons, and smaller yields (no, against extreme hardened targets or large “soft” targets, “improved accuracy” cannot compensate for popgun sized yields), is madness.
