Jews, the Decline of MacDonald, and Other News

Jews and other news.

An excellent Joyce piece about Jewish self-glorification.

Jews have a joke among themselves that goes something like this: A class of schoolchildren is asked to produce an essay about giraffes; little Tom Smith hands in a piece on the neck; little John Baker writes about its diet; others write about the tail, the environment, and so on. Then little Benny Cohen hands in his paper, and it is titled “The Giraffe and the Jews.”

The joke, little-known among non-Jews, conveys an important truism — that, for Jews, everything, no matter how distant or abstract, often comes back to the idea and feeling of being Jewish. In other words, it is a joke about Jewish ethnocentrism. That non-Jews aren’t very familiar with the joke speaks to the fact that Jewish ethnocentrism is something that is very frequently discussed and celebrated by Jews, but also something that is frequently downplayed, obscured, or even denied when queried by outgroups.

Indeed.

A particularly interesting aspect of the study by Brown et al. is the response to increasing rates of intermarriage among American Jews. Jewish intermarriage has been raised as evidence by some scholars objecting to analyses of Jewish ethnocentrism, most notably and recently by Nathan Cofnas.[6] However, as Brown et al. note, given more than a century of intense assimilation and acceptance by the host population and a population size of only around 3%, “an endogamy rate [among Jews] of 50% is surprisingly high.”

People familiar with my work over a long period of time may remember that I did a quantitative analysis of this, graphing various White American ethnic groups for proportion of the population (X axis) and outmarriage rate (Y axis). A linear relationship was established – the smaller the group, the greater the outmarriage rate (since the greater the chance of a partner of a different ethnicity). I then tried to place Jews (in America) on that line and saw that they didn’t fit; indeed, their outmarriage rate was depressed compared to gentile groups of similar population size (who had outmarriage rates of greater than 70%). Of course, the more ethnocentric Jews practice endogamy, and if ethnocentrism has, at least in part, a genetic component, this trend would have the effect of increasing Jewish ethnocentrism over time.

One can note that arguments about Jewish outmarriage rates, while perhaps relevant to Jewish genetic strategies, are not directly relevant to the effects of Jews in White societies. Even if Jews are destroying their ethnic integrity through outmarriage (which is questionable) that doesn’t obligate other groups to endure Jewish destructive behavior toward those other groups for the period of time that Jews are still extant.

And speaking of self-glorification, isn’t that what Jewish involvement in the HBD cult is about?  When is Joyce going to denounce that cult and denounce “pro-White activists” who seemingly care more about Jews than about European-derived peoples?  Both Joyce and Strom write good things about the general subject of the Jews, but when it comes to criticizing people on the (Far) Right who are slavishly pro-Jewish, they suddenly become reticent.

And then we have this nonsense:

TOQLIVE: JAMES EDWARDS HOSTS KEVIN MACDONALD: INDIVIDUALISM AND THE WESTERN LIBERAL TRADITION

What that basically is, is MacDonald going hardcore, ultra-Nordicist. And why not?  I’ve predicted a convergence of HBD, anti-panEuropeanism, Nordicism, etc., with the net effect of alleged anti-Semites being puppets being manipulated by the likes of Hart and Unz.  And, a per the vast majority of my other predictions, I’ve been proven right.  MacDonald is so hysterical in his HBD-Nordicism that he makes ludicrous comments.  One example is the Kempian talking points about complete population replacement in Rome, which is not only factually incorrect but logically inconsistent with the idea that North/South European differences have been place since the Neolithic. Another example is the idea that Southern Italy is “collectivist” while the truth is that the amoral familism there is inherently anti-collectivist – there is no sense of civic duty or ethnic loyalty or nationalism, just loyalty to smaller family units.  I wrote about that at my old Richard Lynn’s Pseudoscience blog:

Amoral Familism is Not Ethnocentrism
This Afrowop defect is not the same as this.
That the HBDers are apparently unable or unwilling to distinguish amoral familism from ethnocentrism does not reflect well on their intelligence or their honesty.
Whether amoral familism is a step on the universalism-ethnocentrism spectrum, or represents an independent entity (in which case we would have at at least a triangle rather than a straight line representing the possibilities), is open to debate.
However, it should be clear that in many ways amoral familism is, practically speaking, as opposed to ethnocentrism as universalism is.  Universalism rejects ethnocentrism because it sees the ethnocentric view as too selfish and narrow, amoral familism rejects ethnocentrism because it is too broad and selfless.
For EGI, ethnocentrism is the “sweet spot,” and the other two options are defects.  From the standpoint of building a civil society, amoral familism is the worst, ethnocentrism is the best in a (relatively) homogeneous state but leads to problems in multiculturalism.  Universalism allows for temporary smooth functioning in a multicultural state, but long term leads to ethnic replacement of universalists by ethnocentrists.  Universalism in a homogeneous state is not stable, since it will eventually lead to alien immigration and multiculturalism.
A moderate degree of ethnocentrism in a (relatively) homogeneous state is more optimal than the alternatives.
There is also a question of the relative hereditability of these behavioral patterns.  The more genetically influenced, the more the pattern should hold with migration and existence in multicultural societies. The two extremes of universalism and ethnocentrism may be most heritable.  Contra the HBDers, aside from a dwindling number of mobsters, Afrowops in America really don’t practice amoral familism, while Jews and other Asians definitely still practice ethnocentrism. Thus, I doubt that amoral familism hereditability of these behavioral patterns.  The more genetically influenced, the more the pattern should hold with migration and existence in multicultural societies. The two extremes of universalism and ethnocentrism may be most heritable.  Contra the HBDers, aside from a dwindling number of mobsters, Afrowops in America really don’t practice amoral familism, while Jews and other Asians definitely still practice ethnocentrism. Thus, I doubt that amoral familism is strongly heritable.  It seems like a very plastic behavioral phenotype.
While it may be extremely difficult to make ethnocentrics into more disinterested civic-minded people, hopefully the more universalist and ex-familistic can be “trained” to become more ethnocentric, in competition to those with an innate sense of extreme ethnocentrism.
This isn’t the kind of analysis one would get from a HBDer, who instead would be pathetically groveling in front of the Altar of Asia, and worshiping a pile of yarmulkes.

HBD: the enemy of truth.

MacDonald is essentially trashing his legacy in his old age.  While it is sad to see, and unfortunate, it doesn’t obligate me to pull my punches when I comment on such mendacity.

Trump’s campaign antagonism toward the military and intelligence world was at best a millimeter thick. Like almost everything else he said as a candidate, it was a gimmick, designed to get votes. That he was insincere and full of it…

But, hey, according to Greg Johnson, Trump’s sincere, a man of genuine greatness, who could have won with Jeb Bush’s political views.  Even Trump himself refutes the latter, as chronicled at this site.  But Johnson continuously insists otherwise. Is that rent-seeking behavior?  Is Johnson using the Counter-Currents platform to gaslight his readers in order to safeguard his own reputation and the flow of “D’Nations?”

Not a bad Zman essay…particularly as it repeats points made here years ago.

After all, she’s of great benefit to all humanity. Why would anyone think otherwise?  How dare you!  In all seriousness, the positive attitude of Der Movement to that obviously unbalanced little Ladogan is truly tragicomic and pathetic. It is also confirmation of the validity of my criticism of Der Movement.

Hey!  Giovanni Gentile had that Ray Luca-John Gotti-Judge Napolitano puffed up hairstyle.  It’s in the blood, apparently.

Odds and Ends, 10/9/19

In all cases, emphasis added.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day: 

In reality, people in marketing are mostly shiftless sociopaths

Yes indeed:

After the war, he developed a successful career in journalism and advertising.

You see, I don’t always disagree with Zman.

Never forget, the subhuman slime Donald “sincere man of genuine greatness” Trump refuses to act against Antifa (although he’s monitoring the situation…very closely), while, at the same time, his DOJ persecutes his own supporters who are victims of Antifa. The incident linked to above took place in Canada, but of course worse has been occurring, with regularity, in America.

While I am sometimes critical of Andrew Joyce, in general I agree with him more often than not. In fact, he is one of the best and most articulate anti-Johnsonian voices in Der Movement.  In the following, he needles the petty nationalist ethnonationalists, and exposes as a lie the ethnonationalist fraud that asserts that the UK is beset by immigration only because it is part of “the pan-European EU” – 

I must make myself clear. I am ambiguous about the actual meaning of Brexit. I firmly believe that the day after Brexit there will be violence in the streets, chaos in hospitals, resources and infrastructure will be stretched to breaking point, and government will be totally ineffective. Britain will be a disaster. But this will also be the case the day before Brexit, just as it has been the case in Britain ever since the multicultural project was embarked upon. Britain’s most pressing crisis has little or nothing to do with a series of transnational treaties binding it to other European member states. Britain has already imbibed the most potent of toxins, globalism and multiculturalism, and these toxins will remain in the system with or without supervision or government from Brussels. My point is that Brexit will not cure Britain of any of its ills. It will not stop or slow immigration, it will not halt cultural decline or the march of Cultural Marxism, it will not stop Britain being ruled by elites far removed from the life and environment of the everyday Briton. More than a departure from European bureaucracy, Britain needs a new departure from itself.

The ethno-nationalist looks at the Brexit debate and what does he see? He sees a choice between the migrant-welcoming EU globalist behemoth and … what? For a start, he sees “the most ethnically diverse” British government in history, led by a Prime Minister whose first act in office was to rule out setting any limits on the numbers of immigrants flooding Britain. This places Brexit voters in something of a quandary because the primary motivation for the Brexit vote was concern about immigration (see the excellent research of University of Kent’s Matthew Goodwin). What they are now faced with is a Brexit that won’t do anything to change immigration other than reduce the numbers of Poles and increase the numbers of Indians, Pakistanis and others from the Third World.

How Dare You!

The usual suspects.

After TOO runs a series about how “climate change” is a leftist hoax aimed at attacking the technological and industrial basis of the West, the other shoe drops.

Look at that facial expression.  Exactly like Elizabeth Warren. That is the sort of arrogant self-righteousness and moral posturing we all know and despise. What’s next for Thunberg?  Becoming a ship captain and crashing into Italian ports to dump African invaders?  Riding trains into Bulgaria to tear down border fences?

Cue Counter-Currents: We need more youngsters like Greta Thunberg!

Ethno-Williams Syndrome in a picture.

As regards the status of White ethnics in Der Movement, and what they can expect, consider the fate of Joe Tommasi.  Also consider Michael Polignano and Greg Conte.  I do not defend either Polignano or Conte; I am just stating facts. I never had any problem with Polignano. I didn’t like some things he wrote about Salter’s work (e.g.,”genetic stasis”), but I believe that was out of ignorance and not malice.  Conte is a different story, as I view him as a classic shabbos sud stepandfetchit – ready to throw other Italians under the bus so as to get some table scraps from his Quota Queen masters.  Regardless, fact is, both of them were chewed up and spit out by Der Movement; they should, I suppose, consider themselves lucky they haven’t ended up like Tommasi.  Why put yourself through all of that for a “movement” that has racial contempt for you, that will never take you or your interests seriously?  It is literally true that Der Movement values John Lindsay, Hubert Humphrey, and Greta Thunberg more than it values Michael Polignano. Greg Conte, and Joe Tommasi.  Again, I’m not being sarcastic or facetious – that is literally true. So why do you support, and sacrifice yourself for, people who despise you?  Your activist energies would have been better suited to help create a new, truly pan-European, movement.

It seems like Costello agrees with Sallis and disagrees with Johnson:

I would wager very few of those who voted for Trump did so purely for economic reasons. No, Trump’s most important promise was to end illegal immigration. I submit that there is no way Glassner cannot know this. He goes on to gas about “tax cuts,” “de-regulation,” “thousands of new jobs every month,” “the labor market,” protecting “American workers from the unfair trade practices of our economic and geopolitical adversaries,” and “finally holding Beijing to account.”

Now, I don’t doubt that all of this means something to the overwhelming white middle- and working-class Trump base. But it doesn’t mean nearly as much to them as the prospect of taking back their country. In other words: sending back the illegals and stopping new ones from coming in; rolling back the “diversity” that has all but completely destroyed community in our towns and cities; and reversing trends that would make whites a minority in the nation they founded in, say, another twenty-five years…No one is allowed to say that they support Trump because they think he is good for white interests. But it is just beneath the surface.

Gee…what?  White folks voted for Trump because of his promises about immigration?  Because of White interests? Not because of his charming personality? Not that they would have supported him if he “cloned Jeb Bush’s campaign?”

Johnson is such a fundamentally dishonest liar it is comedy at this point.  The joke’s on you, though.

Mr. Olympia: Form vs. Function

The 2019 Mr. Olympia. 

Negroes at the top, with a NEC Iranian in the mix.  But, definitely, for bodybuilding, a long-standing Negro domination.

Has anyone else noticed racial stratification in “muscle and fitness” sports?  When it comes to strength and power, Whites dominate.  Northern Europeans – particularly physically huge, big-boned, Borreby types – dominate Strongman.  Weightlifting and powerlifting are also heavily White; Bulgarians are heavily over-represented in weightlifting success, while a broad spectrum of European types (including wops) do well in powerlifting. On the other hand, particularly over the last few decades, bodybuilding has been heavily dominated by Negroes, both relatively pure Negroes as well as mulattoes. So, functionality of muscularity = White; superficial appearance of muscularity = Negro. This is analogous to the observation by HBDers that Negroes can sometimes appear to be cognitively and technically competent via extroversion and charismatic confidence, but in reality it is the quiet White beta male who is competent and the Negro most definitely is not.  Function vs. the appearance of function.

But then, there are people on the Far Right who prefer form over function, eh?  The prop is very esthetic, indeed!

This is, frankly, a bit ludicrous:

The five stewardesses on an Eastern Airlines flight I took to Miami in 1974 looked like they could all be finalists in the Miss America pageant. Even though we hit a large air pocket I still remember it as one of the most enjoyable flights I ever took. The opening staff of the Norwegian Pavilion at Epcot in May 1988 provided a similarly memorable enjoyable experience. When I took my first trip to Scandinavia the following summer the experience was frequently repeated. I remember a bus tour of Copenhagen with a group of mostly retired Americans getting their first impression of Scandinavia, and everyone remarking about how good looking and blond the people were. I assumed they had expected a high level of blondness, but what they actually saw obviously exceeded their expectations.

Promoting public policy based on personal anecdotes.  By golly, a flight I took to Miami 45 years ago hit a large air pocket, but those five (not four, not six, but five, count ‘em, five) stewardesses made the flight ever so enjoyable!

And, of course, the requisite obsession with Scandinavia.

I’d like to point out that this obsession was leveraged by HopeNotHate in orchestrating their Hermansson infiltration.  That is not conjecture, not a matter of debate, but established fact. Hermansson himself described in detail how his ancestry was a key factor – perhaps the key factor – in enabling his easy and complete access to the higher circles of “movement leadership,” and how Steadman’s well-known fetishes in this regard made him a viable target.

Racial esthetics are important, no doubt. But everything needs to be put in their proper place, and individuals should not project their particular preferences into an overwhelming obsession to define the totality of racial nationalism.

9/15/19

In der news.

Someone knows Trump:

Exile

Absolutely. Seeing a PoC pulling (((tricks))) hits grugs in their monkey-brain. AOC even triggers big-brain Tucker. Trump’s Orange Soma by comparison. His rhetoric lulls them. I’m seriously worried about major (((shenanigans))) on guns and immigration if Trump gets a lame-duck second term. He’s already punch-drunk on the goofy idea that Princess-Abu-Titjob will be THOTUS someday and God only knows what “muh legacy” bullshit he’ll try for with nothing left to lose.

Good video by Taylor.

This podcast by Johnson and Morgan is reasonably good.

Johnson makes a good point that Jews clearly feel more comfortable living among Muslims than they do among European-derived peoples (Whites).

But then:

Covington was part of the Old Right. I have said all I want to say about him. The New Right has a very different approach to politics. Commemorating his life would excite the wrong sort of people. I have been consciously trying to deemphasize Old Right figures at Counter-Currents.

Let’s dissect:

Covington was part of the Old Right.

In other words, he was a serious White nationalist (whatever his faults…I’m not taking sides in the Covington/NA-Pierce-Williams feud).

I have said all I want to say about him. 

If only the same would apply to Evola, Devi, Guenon, Trump, etc.

The New Right has a very different approach to politics. 

Sure!  Pepe, Kek, Unite the Right, the Night of the Wrong Wives, the Pilleater Chronicles, TRS follies, Trump worship, Hermansson and Lewis, being wrong about virtually everything…a very different approach, indeed!

Commemorating his life would excite the wrong sort of people.

One can say the same about running Ash Donaldson articles.

 I have been consciously trying to deemphasize Old Right figures at Counter-Currents.

Instead, we’ll seen have an in-depth metapolitical analysis of Pepe. The only question – written by Mudshark Annie’s breakfast butler Costello or gun-toting, Slavic muscleman Jeelvy?

Spencer:

How many Boomers will write checks to this girl’s non-profit with notes attached that read:

 “If Millennials adopt socialism, they could destroy Medicare!”

Rewritten:

How many Boomers will write checks to Strom’s National Alliance with notes attached that read:

 “If Millennials adopt Spencer, they could destroy White nationalism!”

Anyone else notice how McCulloch is being featured at TOO frequently recently?

Anyone who doubts the predictions and analyses of Sallis does so at their peril.  I openly predicted a growing alliance between the HBD/race realist crowd and the Nordicists. Ironically for all involved, the wire-pullers behind the scenes are those that would, in their “genetic and cultural locus,” resemble Lukacs.  After all, Unz and Hart are “good Jews,” aren’t they guys…or should I say goys?

I’m also curious whether the “esthetic prop” includes things like this.

Not so much this, I think.

The Importance of EGI

Race, immigration, and the demographic future.

Read this about the real underlying issues of the immigration debate.

A focus on EGI is absolutely essential in evaluating any debates on, e.g., immigration.  We require a more thorough – and ongoing – analysis of this. We need to effectively ground our understanding of key issues, and our political activism, on a bedrock foundation of ethnic genetic interests and the pursuit of group adaptive fitness. While some proximate interests – for example, actualizing a High Culture – are of fundamental importance, we must always realize that ultimate interests – genetic interests – are paramount. If genetic interests, ultimate interests, must be given precedence over the most important of proximate interests, then this shows us how much more precedence they must be given over less important, less urgent, less fundamental proximate interests.  A further point – genetic interests and the most fundamental proximate interests are typically in accord; thus, actualizing a High Culture is not only compatible with the EGI-conserving objective of racial preservation and advancement, it can be viewed as being actually dependent on it (and, to a lesser extent, vice versa). On the other hand, one can think of many other proximate interests – for example, an emphasis on “economic growth” – that can be incompatible, in many contexts, to the ultimate interest of genetic continuity.

And even though culture and civilization are the most important proximate interests and in many ways overlapping ultimate concerns, they are not themselves ultimate concerns, so one should even be skeptical of comments such as those as Trump bemoaning immigration into Europe because of its pernicious effects on “culture.”  Now, Trump was right, and to be fair, we should appreciate that he went that far – crossing a line other American leaders feared to even approach or, worse, even acknowledge – but it is not enough.  The ultimate issue is demographic replacement, and we await the American leader “alpha” enough to cross that, final, line.  After all, we can always hear ‘spin” about how alien invaders “assimilate into the culture,” but EGI is a “firewall” that prevents discussion from veering too far away from ultimate concerns.

But for the firewall to be an effective one must accept that one’s worldview has a grounding in EGI, and one must have a serious understanding of the concept. I do not advocate the crazed stupidity of Type Is who warp the concept and use “EGI” to explain everything from bad weather to the price of milk; idiots who chant “EGI” as a talisman without even understanding what it is about. Instead, I simply say that consideration of EGI must be behind memes and schemes, behind goals and objectives, and even when proposing grand moral orders, sweeping vistas of a White future, one must always remember that EGI must be at least minimally considered in the background.  All schemes, agendas, and objectives must have a pro-EGI foundation upon which the grand structures can be built. This does not mean that EGI is itself the grand structure – I argue against that here – but it has to be the foundation, the firewall, the immutable prerequisite that prevents you from drifting in the direction of maladaptive ideas.

I note the “movement” – despite a small faction that, as noted above, chants “EGI” at every opportunity (typically superfluously) – also doesn’t properly incorporate EGI into its calculations (it if has “calculations” at all, rather than just endlessly regurgitating the same old tired memes, the same old fossilized dogma).

The implications of EGI cannot be responsibly evaded.  We know that the Left and the Mainstream Right, evil and stupid to the core, respectively, are bereft of responsibility to humanity – higher humanity – but the Far Right, in theory, should possess the sense of responsibility to do what is right.  And they cannot do this without having a solid foundation of EGI and its myriad consequences when considering the actualization of ideals into policies.  Only Type II activists are truly capable of doing this.

9/9/19 News

More of the same.

A man of genuine greatness!  That genuine greatness on display again!  Keep on sending in those “D’Nations” to the Quota Queens, some of whom are still lying about Trump.

The endgame for the Quota Queens.

I don’t know if it’s joking or not, but there are a lot of people who say that Meds aren’t white. There are certainly differences between the Northern Europeans and those nations that have long histories of Arab invasion, for example.

Once again – EGI Notes openly calls for all White ethnics to abandon Der Movement.  Withdraw your support so that its inevitable collapse comes that much faster.

Read this.  A good review of a good book, but my predictions differ.  I see it more likely that there is a continued slow decline into demographic doom, with outbreaks of real, widespread violence occurring after Whites are in minority status. In any case, I predict defeat, despair, and destruction.  Regardless of the specifics, a people that has let things reach the point they have reached today, without even the mild response of electing Mainstreaming Marine, do not exhibit the stuff to fight, much less win, any sort of “racial civil war.”
