It is not good.
Read this, emphasis added:
…for the first time since 2010 — the year we were founded — Counter-Currents lost money…
…What happened? The answer is simple: Charlottesville, then PayPal deplatformed us, and we lost our monthly donors. Many donors did not miss a beat. They went straight to our Donate page and signed up for monthly pledges with their credit cards. Others signed up at Hatreon, which is now defunct. But many never returned. Some were wedded to PayPal. Others took it as an opportunity to re-evaluate their spending. Others were swept up in the widespread post-Charlottesville disappearances. Whatever their reasons, we lost a significant number of supporters, and that put us in the red.
Probably, the multiple infiltrations, as well as the Johnson vs. Spencer/Friberg feud eruption, can be added to that list of reasons. Although I will agree. if forced to name one reason more important than the others, that Charlottesville has to be named as reason #1. The other things are problems, and serious ones, but they added on more problems to that termed here “Charlottesville Ragnarok.” All the Alt Right “spin” aside, the Unite the Right fiasco was one of the biggest blows against the progress of White racial activism in America. Don’t get me wrong: the Far Right has every right (no pun intended) of having access to public spaces, and there is nothing wrong with claiming the right to such spaces, if you do so with adequate planning and understanding of the underlying realities.
It’s not like all the fearless leaders shouldn’t have seen that coming. It’s not like it was so difficult to predict that a poorly planned mass rally would end in disaster. Most of all, it should have been known that the System works hand-in-glove with “Antifa” – and for the purposes of this post, “Antifa” describes all of the currently extant Far Left domestic terrorism groups, regardless of what they call themselves.
The “movement,” with all its grand intellectuals, is unable to comprehend the difference between an official de jure factoid and an established, truth-on-the-ground, de facto reality. The following three statements constitute the de facto reality in America (and with slight rewriting of the statements, applies for most of Western Europe as well).
1. Antifa is part of the System.
2. Antifa is part of the US government.
3. Antifa is part of the Trump administration.
Let us consider each statement in turn, from the perspective of Der Movement. Most of the Alt Right would, I believe, agree with Statement One will little quibbling; after all, it is obviously true (but that underscores the gross incompetence of Der Movement, because if Statement One is obviously true, the behavior of the Charlottesville government and police should have been anticipated and planned for). A smaller fraction of activists would agree with Statement Two; although in reality Statements One and Two are equivalent, in that the US government is part of the System (and NOT the other way around, by the way), so all who agree with One should also agree with Two.
It is Statement Three that would cause problems for the dimwitted Type I Alt Right Trump fanboys; this ties into the lack of understanding to my previous comment at this blog that “President Donald Trump is the head of Antifa.”
Now, that last comment is not meant to be taken literally, in the official de jure sense. Of course, it is not true in the literal sense. After all, Antifa loathes Trump and his supporters, consider them all “racist fascist bigots” and actually considers Trump, if anything, “the head of the Alt Right.” For his part, Trump considers himself a “law and order right wing populist.”
But I’m not talking about official roles here, and I’m not talking about perceptions, and I’m not talking about a literal reality in which Trump gives the leftists their marching orders. No, I’m talking here about on-the-ground de facto reality.
Consider: Trump as President is the head of the US government’s law enforcement. It is his constitutional obligation as head of the federal branch of government, assisted by his Attorney General, to clamp down on domestic terrorists (including domestic terrorists who attack his own supporters at rallies!). For Trump and Sessions to take action against Antifa is not some sort of crazy, rightist fantasy; it is part of their mainstream obligation, their constitutional responsibility. When Far Left domestic terrorists run wild in the streets (often masked, further violating the law), it is the OBLIGATION and the RESPONSIBILITY of Trump and Sessions to take action. This they do not do. Their inaction enables domestic terrorism and allows the Far Left to act with impunity. Why Trump and Sessions behave in this manner is not the point, the point is that, whatever the reason, this is what they do. Not only that, but Trump signs congressional edicts condemning the victims of the domestic terrorists (and some of these victims are Trump’s own supporters!), pledging to use the resources of the federal government against the victims. Therefore, by unimpeachable logic, it is Trump (and Sessions) who enable Antifa; therefore, the latter can reasonably be seen as part of the government of the former. As long as Trump and Sessions refuse their lawful obligation to take action, it is a de facto tacit approval of the leftists. That the Far Left hates Trump, and that Trump may call them “bad guys,” is irrelevant. Action, or the lack thereof, is relevant.
If Der Movement understood all of this, understood that the entire Charlottesville system would be against them, that Trump would condemn them, and that Sessions would refuse to use the power of his office against the Far Left, then Charlottesville 2.0 would never have happened. But it did happen, so clearly Der Movement understands nothing.
This is relevant to the funding issue since it is possible that some of the loss of funding is due to donors becoming disgusted by, and weary of, constant failure and bad judgment.
I’ve already written before on what needs to be done, so no need to repeat all of that; suffice to say it is time for a strategic retreat and some quiet, behind-the-scenes building infrastructure in-depth, which is what should have happened after Trump’s election. The Type II response to Trump being elected would have been “we’ve got a least four years of breathing room; let’s take advantage of this interregnum to really build and prepare for the interesting times ahead.” Instead we got the Type I approach of publicity, mass rallies, cosplay costumes, juvenile bravado, immature podcasts, and comedic infiltrations. Obviously new leadership, with fresh perspectives, is required; just as obviously, the continued affirmative action program in the “movement” will prevent the emergence of that leadership.
Let us consider more “movement” insanity. What respect for, and interest in, had for Faye’s work significantly evaporated after reading this nonsense. Can we come back to reality for a moment, and deal with the issues at hand? I mean, yes, good science fiction/fantasy (as opposed to bad, such as March of the Titans) can be thought-provoking, and thus useful in helping to consider alternative future possibilities, but this Fayeian nonsense is boring and juvenile. And of course it led to a stereotypical Type I comment:
Snigga OdinsonA day in the life of a delusional capitalist who dreams of muh Western Civilization.There is no future outside of the forest!
Right…Whites should be in the forest, eating twigs and branches, or “snug in our hobbit hole” as one defunded failed “leader” so eloquently put it – we’ll just leave it to the Asians to build and maintain technological societies, employ nuclear weapons mounted on hypersonic missiles, engage in eugenics, conduct scientific research, explore and colonize space, and reap the benefits of exploiting science and technics. What could go wrong with that? Why, they’ll just leave us in peace, snug in our hobbit holes in the forest, and the borders of the West can be guarded by Chinese girls with guns (high, high, high-IQ Chinese girls, let us not forget). And then Der Movement wonders why even thick-headed fanboys are starting to wise up and become tight with the purse strings?
Then we read Sailer’s typical rambling.
As someone with a background in the natural sciences, I can assure the reader that the net impact of population genetics studies is to CONFIRM and SUPPORT the racial-biological agenda of this blog, which was NEVER about “purity” – see my writing here (deemed “sophistry” by a deranged mestizo Mexican Nordicist) – but about genetic differences between populations, differences in genetic kinship, and how all of that should be interpreted politically through the lens of Salter’s EGI thesis.
“Racial purity” has never been a driving force, or meme, of this blog; it has instead been the driving force, and fossilized meme, of the ethnic fetishists and crazed Type I Nutzis opposed to this blog. The Levantine alien Reich can scream and cry all he wants, but his work in toto strongly supports some of the main theses underlying what is discussed here, which are in part tied to the idea of genetic difference, NOT “purity.”
They have not yet realized that slow, patient, and relentless effort may be required, possibly over multiple generations, before the National Alliance’s ideas of radical racial-nationalism will triumph as the best, and indeed the only reasonable, way to govern society. We’ve always known we were in this for the long haul, and you should too.
Right…which is why, in my experience, the National Alliance always had a “the revolution is just around the corner” Der Tag philosophy, with one prominent NA activist (to be fair, not Strom) pontificating back in ~2001 that “I don’t understand why White people have bank accounts or go to college, don’t they know that it is 100% certain that the entire System will collapse within five years?”
How did that work out? If Der Movement continues to be a tragicomic clownshow, then they should not wonder when the tin cup remains empty and disillusioned followers drift away.
