Trump and The Bunker Syndrome

A classic case.

First, read this.

Listen to this.

What a terribly shallow “take” on Trump.  Praising and supporting Trump’s stupid blustering tweets.  Yeah, man, all good stuff!  Meanwhile, as Trump is tweeting, the exact same failed countries are flooding America with immigrants, Antifa riots in the streets with impunity, while Trump’s DOJ persecutes rightists.

Spencer was 100% correct in his statements, but going to the Press is a mistake in general. Morgan at least admits that Spencer had a point. More importantly, being “in bed with the press” is bad when Spencer and Heimbach do it, but it’s A-OK when Johnson does it.  What hypocrisy.

Duke is “conspicuously successful” in his endeavors?  Are you mad, Johnson?  What? Jumping from one failed organization to another?  Fetishist books?  Gambling? The foray into politics wasn’t bad, but that’s it.

Johnson and Morgan agonize over “the State” and “the Government” not doing anything about Antifa terrorism, and mock Trump – but that’s exactly the point of why we should despise Trump and his empty bluster.

Trump embodies a classic case of The Bunker Syndrome.  He talks and talks, tweets and tweets, crudely blusters, but does nothing. His inaction is in perfect opposition to the image created to appeal to his naïve base and that which triggers the Left.

Now, the argument from the “movement” would be that while it is true that Trump is a useless fraud (they belatedly realize this now, years too late), his “outspoken tweets” embolden others to speak out. I argue otherwise.  What is the net effect of Trumpian bluster?  It is more Antifa terrorism (that he ignores), more deplatforming (that he does nothing about), more political correctness, more SJW hysteria, etc. And while that may be good for chaos and balkanization (and we can give Trump modest credit for inadvertently doing that) it also has the effect of intimidating and silencing Whites from speaking out. While the increase in chaos and balkanization is in theory good, it is so far only benefiting the Left, because the entire System – including the Trump administration – is enabling leftist radicalism while suppressing the Right.  If Trump were to level the playing field by cracking down on leftist domestic terrorism and by taking action against deplatforming, then perhaps his bluster would be useful for the reasons alluded to above.  But as it is now, his bluster only emboldens and strengthens our enemies; only they are leveraging the current chaos to increase their power.

Hey, he’s your God Emperor, right?  He’s stirred into action!

His justice department is going out of its way to continue to find people to prosecute for the Charlottesville picnic. But Trump is going out of his way to help a black guy in Sweden. 
What did I get for my vote? We can’t even chant fun things at his rallies anymore! SAD!

Gee…I don’t know…who was it exactly who correctly identified Trump as a “Negrophilic race cuck” and a “vulgar ignorant buffoon” BEFORE the election?  Spencer?  Johnson? Taylor? MacDonald?  Derbyshire?  Brimelow?  No…guess again.

The future of America.  Enjoy.  Trump is monitoring the situation!

And now for the world championship of stupidity: Gunga Din vs. Tyrone.

The absolute worst writer in the history of racial activism writes (emphasis added):

Until that day, I shall keep on contributing in whatever way I can to an ethics for my own tiny niche, but with a new task: Do not interfere in the creation and developments of allied modes of ethics. For example, ethnonationalists should not begrudge the HBD crowd their absence of teleology, nor should they get all autistically trad while the pick-up artists are busy plying their trade. Likewise, if you see someone exhorting men of average IQ to curb their ambition, do not wail and gnash your teeth about him being a contemptible prophet of mediocrity, as I unwisely painted Dostoevsky and as Vox hypocritically described Peterson. Rather, understand that dogs cannot be expected to have the ethics of a lion. Whereas the god of lions will reward dominance, victory in battle, and proclaiming that work stinks while your many wives bring you food, the god of dogs will reward fetching sticks, holding in your poop until you’re outside, and barking at outsiders. Both gods, however, are subordinate to Gnon, the impossibly ancient principle of survival. In the abyssal cosmological-level analysis, yes, we all ultimately pray to him. But here in Middle Earth, the world is full of lions, dogs, and many other animals, and each has his god to serve and a role to play

Middle Earth!  HBD!  Pick up artists!  You should read Lynn and Roissy while snug in your hobbit hole!  And if you occasionally and fearfully look out from your snug hole, out there in the forest, and see strange lights in the sky, do not worry. That’s only the Chinese, launching themselves into space, using the White Man’s technology to reach the stars, while White men cower in “Middle Earth” measuring each other’s cephalic indices with Durocher’s calipers.  An orc, an orc, my hobbit hole for an orc!

Dark Tweets

When given lemons, make lemonade.

Those on the (Far) Right complain, with justification, about the hypocrisy of being deplatformed from Twitter and other social media platforms, while those on the (Far) Left are kept on, despite outrageously radical, racially inflammatory, and cheerleading-about-leftist-violence tweets and posts.

Has it occurred to anyone on the Right to create “sock puppet” accounts on these platforms, pretending to be anti-White Colored racists, Antifa supporters, foaming-at-the-mouth SJWs, laughably ignorant race-deniers, etc.?  Push the envelope of leftist insanity (as long as you do not promote violence or any other type of illegality, of course, which goes against the stern pacifism of EGI Notes), have fun, create chaos and balkanization, sow discord and confusion, provoke leftist feuds on the basis of race-ethnicity-sex-sexual preferences- ideology-tactics, etc. Perhaps at some point, the Left will start to become paranoid, accusing each other of being sock puppet trolls. Outrage the Mainstream Right. Stimulate White race consciousness. See how far you can go without getting banned; I’m sure you can go quite far indeed, as authentic leftists prove every day.

The possibilities are virtually unlimited.  This is a form of metapolitical ju-jitsu, turning the hypocrisy of the System against itself. The only question is whether rightist sock puppets can mimic genuine leftist insanity; likely at the beginning, attempts by rightist sock puppets to be intentionally inflammatory will fall short of what actual leftists are posting on a daily basis.  But, practice makes perfect, after all.

 

Maybe someone Der Movement heroes are already doing this; if so, very good – do more, and better.  If not, then this displays, once again, the total lack of imagination of the Far Right.

Other items:

There are some who may question why I am always so harsh to Derbyshire, more so than to other ideological opponents. The answer is that his outrageous hypocrisy grates on me. He has the tiresome shtick of being a “humble working class English lad who longs for the days when England was England,” yet he is proudly married to a Chinese woman, has mixed-race children, and defends miscegenation. He brings his Chinese wife to America, a country in which he was an illegal alien, and then he writes for an American-based immigration restriction website (itself founded by an immigrant, but insofar as I know a legal one).  He calls Amren attendees “latrine flies” and heaps scorn on their beliefs, but then eagerly latches on to Amren and speaks at Amren conferences after he’s kicked out from National Review.  We are supposed to feel bad for Derbyshire over his defenestration from National Review, but he had no problem causing trouble for MacDonald at CSULB with his scurrilous The Marx of the Anti-Semites hit piece on MacDonald (that I vigorously criticized at that time). He always pushes his family in the faces of his readers while calling “race purists” “nuts” – and then when he gets the inevitable email response from outraged readers he threatens them to come to his home so he can greet them “in the proper manner.” I suppose we should give the old boy credit; he has balls the size of Jupiter and Saturn and more chutzpah than all the Jews in Israel combined. However, I still find him annoying.

He’s monitoring the situation!

As regards Spencer on CNN, I have no strong objection in this instance, although generally I am opposed to talking to the press.  It was no great victory either, more or less a “wash.” Interesting that they chose Spencer instead of Taylor, though.  The Far Right needs its own media. Oh, that’s right – “there’s no money.” After all, Derb and Pete have priority, do they not?

It’s laughable when the fetishists undermine their own arguments.   The last WASP on the Supreme Court!  Followed by about how much of a “turncoat” he was.  Bring back Earl Warren!  Actually, Warren was of Scandinavian stock – even better for Der Movement!  Of course, Warren’s name is synonymous with anti-White betrayal – are we surprised?

I don’t know.  If we are going to have a civil war in America over race, another one that is, and it is becoming increasingly likely that in some point in the future we will, then maybe we need to get as many Whites on our side as possible?  In that case, pan-Europeanism is a good idea, and the Nordicist-Fetishist types like Ash Donaldson should be eschewed.  We also need educated Whites on our side; perhaps Der Movement can tone down the anti-scientific “traditionalism,” get out of their “snug hobbit holes,” and put together a mature, future-oriented ideology?

Burr, Wild Bunch, Vance

Odds and ends.

Recommended reading.

I’m no fan of Burr’s proto-SJW views – including and particularly his ridiculously positive views about women – but he nevertheless was the most Faustian of the Founding Fathers.If you read the book, you’ll also see he had “big balls,” as the phrase goes.  His downfall was due to two facts – one, that all his energies went to his own personal self-aggrandizement with no underlying greater objective; and, two, he wasn’t very detail-oriented. or realistic about the motivations and limitations of others.

Nevertheless, the type of dynamism of this Faustian and ambitious individual is something we could use in the “movement” today if – and only if – it is put into the service of higher goals (racial interests) and not purely selfish objectives, and if Burr’s other flaws also did not manifest in whatever modern heir he would have among racial activists.

If the White race is doomed, then at least let us go out like this.

“They struggle to defy their destinies” – the essence of Jack Vance summarized in 54 seconds here.

Of course, Mazirian the Magician is only one tale of several that make up The Dying Earth, the latter being the more modern title for the collection of short stories (Spoiler alert below*).  But the Type Is prefer hobbit holes, orcs, and “the battle for Middle Earth.” There really should be a study done on preferences regarding sci-fi/fantasy – is it personal psychology, ideology (e.g., Traditionalism vs. Futurism), or ethnoracial (e.g., Nords vs. Meds)?

*Spoiler alert!   The highwayman doesn’t end well, the hopeless quest does end reasonably well, the “lovers” (who are at the time not “lovers” at all but presumably become so after the story ends) end up victorious, and the woman is cured of her curse.

Odds and Ends, 6/5/19

Several items.

Meet Julius Evola.

Giulio Cesare Evola was born in Rome. The parents of Giulio Cesare Evola were Vincenzo Evola, born 4 May 1854, and Concetta Mangiapane, born 15 August 1865. They were both born in Cinisi, a small town and municipality in the Province of Palermo in the north-western coast of Sicily.

As well as “the Philosopher of Fascism.”

Giovanni Gentile was born in Castelvetrano, Sicily.

Anyone remember Negro Thomas Sowell’s pontification that Southern Italians had nothing to do with Fascism?  Just like the HBDers, non-Whites always like to lie in order to divide Europeans against each other.  Non-White HBDers are the worst.

And is Der Movement going to officially revoke Julius Evola’s “Traditionalist Hero” membership card?  How can the Type I Traditionalists continue to value the work of that Negro?

Radical leftist Antifa Don Trump and his neo-Marxist DOJ defeated.

A degenerate Negro.

Traditionalism meets astronomy!

It’s the origin of the Aryan people at least the ones remaining on earth, who fled civil decay and started the civilization of mankind that fell around 8-12,000 years ago. Their descendants are still here today. However they are not originally from here. The lore goes back some of the oldest historians as well as occult histories. Namely works such as “The Race to Come” is inspired by such works. Maria Orsic etc. Etc. Theres to much to cover.

What about Antares or Betelgeuse?  Rigel?  Is Ultima Thule in the Canopus system?  The Aryans of Archernar!

This is where Der Movement’s Quota Queen “leadership” will bring us.

Joan of Arc!  Greg Johnson weeps.

Support Glen Allen and Other Issues

In der news.

MacDonald and I are in perfect accord here.

Let’s see.  You can donate to support Allen’s suit, a fight against pure evil:

Beirich, Potok, et al. don’t even pretend to engage in honest debate and the free flow of ideas. Atty. Allen quotes Potok: “We see this [as a] political struggle, right? … I mean, we’re not trying to change anybody’s mind. We’re trying to wreck the groups, and we are very clear in our head, … we are trying to destroy them.” And in this case, the attempt to destroy Allen goes far beyond ethical and legal norms — not surprising given the SPLC’s sordid history of using smear tactics and hypocrisy (Section 31) as well as their dedication to fund-raising far beyond what they actually use to further their causes (Section 27).

Or you can support this.

Your choice.

The current crop of Counter-Currents writers are so bad, so superficial, so mediocre, that they make John Morgan sound like the voice of reason and maturity in comparison. 

Note also how the site is converging onto an Amren-VDARE HBD conservatism position.  Derb snug in his hobbit hole – with Madame “Rosie” throwing him some crumbs if he behaves.  “White advocates” and their “sweet business deals.”  The Brimelows and their tin cup poster children. What a shame.

More on this.

KMacD admits the Trump cheerleading – but where is the accountability?  Spencer is correct that the Republican Party is the major enemy and must be destroyed in order to break the logjam of cul-de-sac stagnation politics.  He is dishonest, or ignorant, when he says we were ALL on the Trump bandwagon, as readers of this blog know full well.  But, his overall instinct here is better than GOP-lover Quinn (see above) at the HBD-Conservative mainstreaming Counter-Currents site. The Sallis Strategy – destroy the cuckservative GOP. I laugh at the delusion of these Alt Righters that they are somehow responsible for Trump’s victory.  It’s exactly the opposite – the Trump campaign energized the idiotic Pepe-Kek brigade.

On the one hand, I agree with some of what Spencer said about optics.  But, on the other hand, his arrogance about his critics is just too much.  Yes, Rich, you are taller and a more successful womanizer than Anglin, better-looking than Weev, and more heroic than Vaughn.  Now, please concentrate on wisdom, maturity, judgment, and persistence, to complete the picture. Also a better understanding of the link between prominence and responsibility/accountability would help as well.

Another thing – according to Greg Johnson, Spencer is a terrible human being, unethical, destructive to the “movement,” etc., and he has no patience for supporters and enablers of Spencer.  So, what does he have to say about Edwards and MacDonald positively engaging Spencer in this podcast?

This is not “Sallis being a troublemaker.”  This is an important question of character and moral ethics.  Consider a group of prominent dissidents.  Person A publicly and repeatedly reviles Person B, attacking B’s morals, character, behavior, and contributions to the cause; Person A also accuses Person B of being involved in personal smears against A.  Thus, A is 100% against B.  Very well.  But then Persons C, D, etc. come in, freely associate with B, give B a platform, and take B seriously as a leader, fully enabling B and what B stands for. Now, what is going to be Person A’s position vis-à-vis Persons C and D, etc.?  Consider further Person A establishing a record of being intolerant of criticism, even from third parties who have no connection whatsoever to Person B.  Is A going to look the other way regarding the B-C-D association?  Is it all “politics” with no ethical considerations involved?  I realize that I may be an overly idealistic, and non-pragmatically apolitical moralpath, but how can anyone take A and his attitude toward B seriously if A ignores all of the above?

I see this as an important issue.  

Sallis right gain: I’ve been saying for years that Trump needs to stop the jackass tweets and do televised addresses.  The good news is that he did it and, surprisingly, didn’t make a total fool of himself.  The bad news is that he, expectedly, did a mediocre job of it.

A very true statement:

China, for example, doesn’t develop weapons; it copies designs stolen from others.

Copy, copy, copy, steal, steal, and steal.  Steal and copy, copy and steal.

But the Chinese can do a lot with that stolen and copied technology, particularly as the West collapses under the weight of “diversity” and moral qualms about using the technology. Further, the West is hobbled by the attitudes of Luddite freaks like Tolkien and all those who fetishize “traditionalism.”

The Zman:

Eric Hoffer made the observation that people involved in causes never reach a point where they say the cause has achieved its goals and therefore can disband and cease its activities. For example, anti-smoking zealots have accomplished all that can be accomplished, yet they persist.

Yes, because as we know, no one smokes any more.  As we know, no one is ever again going to die of smoking-affected disease.  As we know, you can never again have that wonderful experience of walking down the street after someone smoking and be asphyxiated by their noxious fumes.

Traditionalism:

HungarianFashionista

Posted January 5, 2019 at 6:08 am | Permalink

Lajos Kassai, one of the intellectual leaders of the Hungarian Right says this: someone’s true race is shown by the kind of archetypal image that stirs his soul. So true. Show me a sandy beach with palm trees, or an image of a rainforest, and to me, it could be on another planet. Show me Mediterranean or Nordic images, and I say, “Hm, nice”. But when I see an image of the steppe, it feels like coming home. I’m a descendant of White people who did not migrate to the West.

Hey, I like outer space images; hence, I’m a Martian.

And, we can ask – are there any hobbit holes on the steppe?  Well, hamsters and gerbils live on the steppe, with their snug burrows, so I suppose a Hungarian traditionalist can be snug in his steppe hobbit hole as well.

The Zman:

The Greeks are a bit different. I think it is because the West has so much more respect for the Greeks than the Romans. Maybe it is the fact the Greeks never conquered the world, like the Romans.

The history books I have read have left out the Roman conquest of Germania, Scandinavia, Scotland and Ireland, Eastern Europe, the rest of Asia other than the Near East, sub-Saharan Africa, Australia, the Americas, the Pacific Islands, etc.  Perhaps Mr. Zman can recommend a history text to us where those events are properly chronicled.

And the West will respect people who conquered less?  Maybe the West should have done a bit less colonization then?

I think we should have Carlson 2020 rather than anyone else.  But, hey, Tuck, it’s race and civilization, not “happiness.”

I recently watched the 1998 Moby Dick miniseries starring Patrick Stewart.  Very well done – it is recommended. Ahab is the ultimate Moralpath, and the story is a warning that pure moralpathy unleavened with pragmatism can lead to disaster.  On the other hand, pure pragmatism is doomed to failure and utter stagnation – it is worthless. Even further on the other hand, however destructive Ahab’s obsession turned out to be, it is much better than cowardly hiding from life and from the inexorable march to the future by hiding “snug in one’s hobbit hole,” letting other races do what Whites once dared.

I essentially agree with this.  The memes are more important than the source.  And that’s something the thin-skinned, hysterically womanish quota queens can never understand with their cordon sanitaire around EGI Notes.

An expert on female behavior tells us what’s what.  Next – commentary from Pee Wee Herman about weightlifting.

Maybe this is explained by all those “British Asians,” eh, Silkers?  I don’t understand why the HBD VDARE site has any problem with this.  Isn’t the lowly White subaltern race supposed to serve their “high, high-IQ” Oriental masters?  Maybe throw in some “measured groveling,” as well – right Derb?

The answer: Either Trump is the most incompetent, lazy, and low-energy President in US history, or he simply doesn’t care (or actually secretly supports the invasion).

But, hey, let’s not forget the Quota Kings (Coulter) and Queens: In Trump We Trust, the God Emperor, the last chance for White America, an American Caesar who will save White demographics.

Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong.

Sallis in 2015: Trump is a fraud and a vulgar, ignorant buffoon.

Sallis – right, right, he’s always right.

How does a bearded man in a red pickup truck transform into a red-bearded man?

Can TOQ Live host Richard Spencer and Greg Johnson together?  Seriously.  Let them actually debate, instead of sniping.  Also, if TOQ is interested in “academic” style material, my recent refutation of leftist misinterpretations of Lewontin would fit the bill.  Ball in your court, gentlemen.  

Saturday Stupidity

In all cases, emphasis added.

Recent technological developments in China have made keen observers marvel at their ingenuity and, also, feel somewhat surprised at their achievements and their plans for the future. In particular, the news that China intended to launch artificial moons to replace expensive and unsustainable street lighting was something that really forced people to take notice. These new moons work simply by reflecting the sun’s light, much like the actual moon does, but in a directed fashion that enables humans to control where and when the light appears. We’re always led to believe that China is the world’s leading culprit when it comes to polluting the atmosphere and contributing to climate change, which they are at present, but with measures such as these, they’re laying the foundations for a more sustainable future. In 30 years’ time, when the West is still bickering within about the Paris Climate Accord, China will have surpassed everybody as the world’s most green nation state. Additionally, China has recently hit the headlines for developing a new sun. Sounds ridiculous? It’s a reality. China has developed a device that can reach temperatures of 100 million degrees Celsius – the actual sun’s core burns at a slightly less impressive 15 million degrees. This project is part of a process undertaken by the Chinese government to better understand nuclear fusion, with a view to using it to replace less sustainable energy sources in the future.

While the Chinese are doing all of that, we’ll be following the advice of Tolkien and Johnson, rejecting technology, and enjoying all the “de facto anarchy in the provinces” while we are “snug in our hobbit hole.”  

Seriously, though, a fundamental plank in the New Movement Platform proposed at Western Destiny is “Futurism, not Traditionalism.”  One reason why the Right always loses is that it is constantly trying to recapture a lost past, rather than trying to conquer the coming future.  

Speaking of the Chinese, we have their vocal pet, man-on-a leash “measured groveling” Derbyshire. He’s an “Anglo-Saxon supremacist” don’t you know.  He could have produced more Anglo-Saxons by choosing a co-ethnic wife, but I suppose the “awkward squad” personality (so designated by his own mother) reduced the choice to “Rosie.”

The document I’m mainly drawing on here was posted at quora.com in August 2018 by Philip Yip, who describes himself as Administrator for the CANZUK Facebook Group. [Why don’t the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK form an Anglosphere union?, Quora.com, August 25, 2018] Yip, I note in passing, is a Cantonese surname, so presumably Philip Yip is of Hong Kong Chinese descent—mildly interesting by itself in this context.

There’s a place for “Rosie” and the kids after all!  That’s what “HBD race realism” is all about, isn’t it?

Does New Zealand, for example, really want an inflow of British Muslim rape gangs or black British drug dealers?

Does America, for example, really want an inflow of British English illegal immigrants and their Chinese wives?

As is this answer to the Type I reply to Spencer:

That isn’t really what’s happening. It’s like an enemy nation producing a new fighter jet that makes ours look stupid and pointless. We stand in awe and recognize we need this in our brand.

Of course, EGI Notes was, as usual, months ahead of the “movement” curve” on this:

…by having clean-cut White men – including young counterparts of Ocasio-Cortez – running for political office on a platform, which while not full-throated White nationalism, is on the borderline of explicitly pro-White and further to the right, and more authentic, than Trump’s phony flim-flam.

We need energetic, charismatic, combative people, of all ages, but particularly the young, to get involved in politics and promote pro-White Far Right populism.  We do NOT need fussy “conservatives,” we do NOT need “HBD race realists,” and we do NOT need pro-Jewish cuckservative Luddite freaks like Tolkien and his hobbit-larping followers – we need “red meat” aggressive Far Right figures getting involved in the rough-and-tumble of politics.  Channeling “Mulatta Milkers” AOC, we can have young White men finding appropriate congressional districts and fighting an insurgent political campaign against dusty decrepit cuckservatives.

An alternate question: Does admitting the pseudoscientific falsehood of HBD endanger the “movement?”  Another question: Or does it just endanger “Rosie” and the GNXPers living in America?

An idiot who makes Evola look like James Watson by comparison.

In one of the footnotes, Schuon defends the phenomenon of black Africans mixing with Mediterranean whites in North Africa…

Why only in North Africa?  How about Southern Europe as well?  Or, by that time, will General Greg Cochran have led the Israeli army to victory there, solving the Swarthoid Problem through Jewish colonization?  Or is Southern Europe already genetically equivalent to Nigeria so that any further Negro influx would be superfluous?  And what if the “white” Berbers of North Africa reject the ever-so-helpful Germanic advice to engage in Negroid miscegenation?  Will they have a choice?  And what is a “Mediterranean white?”  Are there “Subarctic whites” – including both Yukio Mishima and David Bromstad, with the former “looking more white” than the latter?

An essay so bad that I’m even forced to agree with Morgan (in the comments section).

This shows that:

1. Many Europeans know absolute zero about America and Americans

2. Counter-Currents is becoming so putrid that even Morgan looks smart in comparison to the rest of the rotting corpse

3. Europeans who complain about “ignorant know-nothing Yanks” are hypocrites

Greg Johnson has his 2020 Presidential voting plan all set.

Spencer 2020!  A Pepe in every pot!
