Happy Thanksgiving 2019

Odds and ends.

On this day, let us all be thankful that the Alt Right collapsed before it became even more intertwined with racial nationalism and dragged racial activism down into the abyss.

I would like to point out with respect to some of my recent harsh criticism of certain “movement” figures that it is not personal and does not deny that those people have made important contributions to the cause.

Take Hood for example. Much of what he writes I agree with, but the outrageous gaslighting about the history of the Alt Right and its support by those on the Far Right, and also about support for Trump, is unacceptable. His comment of “we just need money” is also unacceptable, as Der Movement has frittered away millions of dollars with nothing to show for it except for endless humiliating failure.  MacDonald had done good work, but the current HBD-Nordicist direction of his work delves into pseudoscience (for an example, see below).

I will continue to speak truth to power.  The power in this case being Der Movement, Inc.

Laugh at this prime Type Isim.

In Donaldson’s mythos, which is equal parts Joseph Campbell and J. R. R. Tolkien, ancient races of elves, dwarves, and giants represent elemental aspects of our world and our souls. Storm giants, for example, represent what is violent and destructive in men and also the great winters that caused the last Ice Age. Before the advent of men, these races often did battle, with the storm giants routing the elves in North America and sending their great prince, Boden, fleeing to Europe. There, the elves managed to defeat the storm giants (an allegory for the retreating glaciers after the Ice Age) with the help of humans.

My elf, my elf, my storm giant for an elf!  I don’t know – those silver age Tales of Asgard comic tales by Jews Lee and Kirby seem to me better than Donaldson

Next for Ash Donaldson – writing a sequel to The Iron Dream.

A Race for the North imparts above all else the great kinship shared by the white European peoples.

By “white European peoples” that is, of course, everyone who derives from the north of Vienna and the west of Berlin.  That may be a bit too inclusive though – how about from the north of Calais and the west of Hamburg?  Dat right!

Zman:

At some point, I decided to watch until I saw an ad featuring anything resembling normal people doing normal things. I gave up after about thirty minutes. If a space alien tried to understand America based on television, its conclusion would be that we are ruled by frizzy-haired mulatto lesbians and homosexuals.

What about Spencer’s octoroons?

With respect to the HBD-Nordicists, see this.  Emphasis added.

And in Sweden, public shaming and ostracism — punishments typical of a feminized society — are very powerful.

Sweden a shame culture? I thought that all of those high trust northern hunter gatherer Inner Hajnal peoples were individualistic “guilt cultures” and the collectivist “shame cultures” were what one would expect from two foot tall greasy Med swarthoids?

See this. Emphasis added.

In cultures that are more individualistic, one’s primary responsibility is to oneself. People make their own important life decisions (e.g., what kind of work to do and whom to marry), and have to live with the consequences of their choices. Thus, it is argued, guilt is a key motivator. (I don’t do something wrong because doing it would make me feel bad.)

In cultures that are more collectivist, one’s primary responsibility is to others—one’s family, tribe, religion or other social entity. Important others in their group make key life decisions for the individual (e.g., what kind of work to do and whom to marry) because they have the requisite knowledge and power, and one’s primary responsibility is to the group and to them because of their elevated position within it. Thus, it is argued, shame is a key motivator.

Back to Amren, emphasis added:

Swedes practiced collectivism long before the Social Democrats came to power in the 1930s…

Swedish collectivism?  Say it ain’t so!  What happened to the individualism of the high trust northern hunter gatherers?  The edifice of HBD-Nordicism continues to crumble.  I suppose they’ll engage in hand-waving spin to “explain” that Swedish collectivist shame culture is due to “egalitarian societal consensus.”  This demonstrates why HBD is not science, but is pseudoscience. From the perspective of the HBDers, their dogma is not falsifiable. Whatever theories and hypotheses the HBDers come up with, if evidence is shown to falsify those theories and hypotheses, the HBDers just create “spin” or lie or create bizarre misinterpretations in order to evade the fact that the falsification occurred.  They never admit to being wrong. If people refuse to accept that their hypotheses have been falsified, they are not real scientists. That is pseudoscience.

Listen to this. It is interesting that Taylor makes a distinction between “White countries” and Jews and Israel. I have no problem with that, of course, but I find it surprising.  


Taylor’s comments on racial differences in serum testosterone is based on what? HBD nonsense?  It doesn’t seem to be based on actual scientific evidence.  Quite the opposite.  See this as well.  There may be other issues involved, such as levels of androgen receptors and the gene expression response to hormones, etc., but that was not what was stated in the interview – the comments there were specifically about serum testosterone levels.

Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong.

Do HBDers ever admit to being wrong?  Or is it more non-falsifiable (from their perspective) HBDism?  Overt pseudoscience.


I cannot stress enough how important it is to get these facts right. Making obvious errors such as this – obvious because a few seconds of online searching can find the current scientific consensus – gives the Left ammunition to smear all racial science as “pseudoscience.”  Authentic racial science is not pseudoscience, only HBD is. Unfortunately in Der Movement, the two are intimately linked, with the latter trashing the reputation of the former.


More of the same outrageous lie.

The single greatest – but largely unmentioned and unstudied – ethnic conflict in America is that between Yankees and Jews.

The truth, emphasis added:

In part, Yankee concern for black rights was genuinely inspired by Protestant moral fervour, but it was also influenced by the same strategic principle which underlay the southern-Catholic alliance: “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Indeed, other than their opposition to white southerners, white Massachusetts Unitarians and black Mississippi Baptists have almost nothing in common.

The history of US politics is little more than the history of these two coalitions: the southern-Catholic alliance and the Yankee-black alliance.

But the civil rights movement united Jews with blacks and their traditional allies, greater New England Protestants and Germanic Americans, against white southerners and northern white Catholics. Today, Jews are the most loyal white ethnic group in the northern coalition, which nowadays goes by the name of the Democrats.

The Yankee-Jew-Negro/Colored Alliance. That’s the truth – not Counter-Currents gaslighting lies.


Lie, lie, they always lie.


No, don’t spend money on Christmas!  Send in those “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents instead.  Remember, those who give live in the Golden Age today!

And if you give to VDARE you’ll live in The Happy Penguin Age today!


Why imagine?  You people were supporting him for years.  MAGA!  Pepe!  Kek!  Hail Trump!

Book Review: The Iron Dream

Book review.

The Iron Dream, by Norman Spinrad

A few words on the “metafiction” book, The Iron Dream, by Norman Spinrad, written as a spoof of Nazism and, even more so, of the alleged Nazi-like motifs inherent in much of sci-fi/fantasy literature.
Rather than waste time giving a detailed synopsis of this book, I direct the reader to an excellent Wikipedia summary of the book’s plot, a plot which is composed of two parts: first, an early 1950s science fiction story, Lord of the Swastika, “written” by an Adolf Hitler who had immigrated to America in 1919, followed by a critical analysis of the Hitler book “written” by one “Homer Whipple.”
The Wikipedia page links makes the necessary historical links between the major characters and places of Lord of the Swastika and the real-life Hitler story. Thus, protagonist Feric Jaggar is an idealized and Nordicized version of Hitler himself; the dark, slight Seph Bogel, an ambitious but loyal orator, is Goebbels; Stag Stopa, head of the Knights (SA), first loyal but then executed for treason, is Rohm; the fanatical head of the book’s SS, Bors Remler, is Himmler; Heldon is Germany; Borgravia is Austria; Zind is the USSR; other characters are undoubtedly Goering, Hess, Ludendorf, etc.; and the dreaded Dominators are the Jews.

The Hitler fiction story is amusingly entertaining and indeed reminds one of standard “movement” racial history “non-fiction” texts.  After all, the “movement” has six foot tall blonde Nordics creating every civilization between Gibraltar and the Himalayas, while Lord of the Swastika ends with seven foot tall blonde Nordics rocketing off to conquer outer space.  Same difference. The following quote from the book summarizes the basic Piercian plotline:

Every inch of advance was a concrete step forward toward the goal of an earth inhabited entirely by tall, blond, genetically purebred supermen totally free from even the possibility of racial contamination.


I don’t know, Spinrad, that really doesn’t sound so bad to me.  Yes, it is “anti-Med,” but that fictional future is a hell of a lot better than the present-day reality of the multiracial nightmare of America and the entire “West.” Hail Jaggar!

Ironically, in my “Nazi” opinion, Spinrad’s spoof backfired on him. The part of the book which reads most like a sarcastically critical spoof is not the Hitler story itself, but the critical analysis by Whipple (who even Spinrad described as a “tendentious pedant”). Whipple’s analysis is the usual warmed over, sexualized, Freudian psychobabble, an ad hominem attack in which the author Hitler is described as a (probably) syphilitic, crazed, obsessed, sexually repressed latent homosexual.  Sound familiar?  And, despite the Anglo-Saxon surname “Whipple,” this New York-based critic might as well have been named “Jewenstein.”  It’s that “over the top.”  And, given the context of the alternative history of The Iron Dream, in which a dominant Soviet Union controls most of the Earth, except a despondent America and a militant Japan, one can’t help admire the vision of Lord of the Swastika and despise the pedantic Whipple.  Further, there is an implicit whiff of subtle praise for Hitler in the very format of this book’s alternative history – in the absence of Nazi Germany, Stalin’s USSR would have conquered all of Europe and most of the world.

With all of this kept in mind, The Iron Dream is recommended reading.
