After the Greta Thunberg and Hubert Humphrey comedies, who will be the next “Nordish” leftist to be praised by the likes of Counter-Currents (‘we need more people like them”) or Durocher (“a great benefit to all humanity”)? John Lindsay? George McGovern? Bill Clinton?
…we seek to cultivate in ourselves the same strengths Clinton had — empathy for others, seeing all sides of an issue, and getting up every day, despite all around you being insane with rage, and doing the best you can do.
Bill Clinton, the first American President to bomb Europe since FDR and Truman, was a political thug, a moral turd, a sexual pervert, and the smiling spokesman for White Dispossession. But none of that matters to a “movement” based upon a foundation of sweaty ethnic fetishism.
Of course, these guys are so tiresomely predictable that correctly identifying their future behavior is like shooting fish in a barrel. The problem is, I’m not the only one who can predict their behavior. We’ll now go to the Hermansson infiltration, which demonstrated how the Left’s use of such easy predictions was leveraged to harm White racial activism. Therefore, although the predictability seems humorous, it is a deadly serious matter.
Let us remember that I was “banned” from Counter-Currents after a comment in which I blamed the tragicomic and destructive Hermansson infiltration on Der Movement’s Nordicism, which is part of what I term “ethnic fetishism.”
Was I wrong about that and deserving of “banning” or was I correct?
Jez Turner, leader of the London Forum and one of the best known far-right activists on the UK scene, quickly invited me to meet up. Later, as paranoia about a mole increased, new members began to be thoroughly vetted and were required to provide letters of recommendation from trusted members.
Luckily for me, Scandinavian heritage and culture is fetishised by some within the UK far right, meaning interest in my Swedish background overcame most suspicion. At formal dinners, for instance, we sometimes opened by drinking from a ceremonial Viking horn, then raising it to the ceiling in a prayer to the mythological Norse god Odin.
One figure from the London Forum showed a particular interest in me as soon as I arrived. Despite being in his mid-fifties, Stead Steadman, a man of diminutive stature, was always dressed in a khaki shirt, khaki shorts and black walking boots; he looked like a cross between a boy scout and a member of the Hitler Youth. Little did I know at the time but this man was to be central to the whole project. Once close to him he opened doors to some of the most influential far-right figures in the world.
The first meetings with Steadman were brief. I was nervous, fully aware that one false step or mistake could end the whole project before it started. He quizzed me about which far-right people and groups I knew in Sweden and displayed an impressive knowledge.
We usually met at the Nordic Bakery in Soho over a coffee and cinnamon bun. I listened to his musings on National Socialism and what he’d recently read, correcting his Swedish when he made a mistake. He was also very interested in my university studies, feeling that the “quality of people” in the movement was low and he wanted more people like me, young and university educated, to join.
Over time we talked more and more about the movement in the UK, as well as the Forum and the people he knew. Coming back from Stockholm after Christmas I brought him a rare book by the Swedish health writer Are Waerland that I acquired from the Swedish anti-racism magazine EXPO. Everything I did was about building stronger relationships and gaining more information.
Once the trust was built Steadman began openly discussing the London Forum, people they planned to invite and who he liked and disliked within the movement. The information I gathered helped HOPE not hate map the London Forum network and the movements of key activists with precision. We learned of international conferences in Lithuania, Italy and Sweden being attended by British extremists.
It even got to the stage where I was asked to sit in on the vetting meetings for new London Forum members. Steadman, Turner and I would meet applicants who wanted to attend meetings and question them on their background, politics and commitment to the cause. Soon there was almost nothing happening in the London Forum that I and HOPE not hate did not know.
It is quite clear that I was 100% correct. If we assume that this account matches reality, and, insofar as I know, no one has denied this fundamental narrative, then my diagnosis of the situation was appropriate, rational, balanced, and quite reasonable – certainly not “insane” or “indecent.”
Does anyone believe that this infiltrator, and his transparent cover story, would have been so quickly accepted had he been a (heterosexual) Southern or Eastern European? Come on now. In that case, the vetting would have been so actually extreme that it may have included a full blood workup, a colonoscopy, and a retinal scan.
Instead of merely admitting how he himself was taken in, even allowing Hermansson to give a meeting keynote address on the dangers of infiltration (high comedy), and talking responsibility for it with full accountability, Johnson lashed out at his critics.
Yawn. More stupidity. Facts – people started stocking up on toilet paper because it was reported that Chinese in lockdowns were stuck without any. First, prudent people stocked up in February, not to excess, but several months’ worth. Then, the lipid-enhanced crowd picked up on the toilet paper meme and started going hog (heh) wild. The excesses of the latter should not reflect on the reasonable prudence of the former. That Costello is an idiot, and doesn’t understand supply chain disruptions, is another story. Further, there was no certainty in late winter how bad things were going to be in the USA and how long and stringent lockdowns would be.
Johnson (emphasis added):
So someone will eventually endow the Alternative Right with a positive content. So it might as well be me.
This content will, to a great extent, be socially constructed. Meaning that people can try to offer any definition they want, but unless it is widely accepted by others, it does not matter. Thus, for a proposed meaning to stick, it must either come from someone relatively authoritative, or it must be immediately compelling, or both.
My definition meets both criteria, so here goes: the Alternative Right means White Nationalism — or it means nothing at all.
The original concept of the Alternative Right emerged from paleoconservatism. (I prefer to call it “faileoconservatism,” an evaluation that is even shared by paleocon pioneer Paul Gottfried, who declared the end of paleoconservatism and called for an “Alternative Right” in the same 2008 H. L. Mencken Club speech.)
Like paleoconservatism, the Alternative Right was simply a way that timid, status-conscious conservatives could flirt with racism and even anti-Semitism while maintaining some sort of pretense of mainstream credibility.
But when Richard Spencer started the Alternative Right webzine in 2010, the principal funders and writers regarded it simply as a vehicle for White Nationalist entryism, and they would have blown it up rather than see it become anything else. Today’s White Nationalists need to take the same strongly proprietary attitude toward the Alternative Right. It is a vehicle of White Nationalism, and we will give it the Howard Roark treatment if it is hijacked from us. Full stop. (Spencer himself torched the Alt Right webzine in 2013 for very different reasons.)
But we also need to remember that the Alt Right will not serve as a tool of White Nationalist entryism and outreach if we drive out everyone who is not a White Nationalist. Converts, by definition, don’t already believe what we believe. Thus purging the Alt Right of people who are not already White Nationalists is ultimately self-defeating.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to go forth into battle and make this concept of the Alternative Right the dominant one. That is all.
At that time, I was on the warpath against the Alt Right. Sallis: Right. Johnson: Wrong. That’s how the world works. And various elder statesmen and “rock stars” were on the Alt Right train as well…at least until Hailgate, and which point they jumped off. Again, it is clear who was right and who was wrong. But, hey, let’s cover that all up with defamatory accusations of “insanity.”
From the article (linked above) on the Alt Right:
Dugin was a leader of the Russian National Bolshevik Party (which was founded by a homosexual male prostitute called Eduard Limonov).
Limonov sounds like real Mannerbund material, eh? Was he a “flirt?” If he thought a male activist was “cute” did he “flirt” with him?
What’s next in store for the insane asylum known as the “Alt-Right”? I don’t see how it can get much worse from this point, but I’m sure they’ll find a way to fuck everything up even more dramatically than they have done in 2020 so far and for the past few years.
The “insane” and “indecent” Sallis was writing things like that back in 2016-2017. In summary, my “take” on the Alt Right over time was as follows.
First, by the first half of 2016, my attitude toward the Alt Right had evolved to two points:
1. If – if! – managed correctly, the Alt Right had some potential as a recruiting tool, as the “youth wing” of a broader “movement,” as a specific faction of activism appealing to certain types of people.
2. I myself, personally, did not like the Alt Right, did not identify with it, was not interested in it, had disagreements of both style and substance with it, and wished for it just to limit itself to point #1, above. Privately, I shook my head in disgust at middle-aged (and older) elder statesman activists jumping on the Alt Right train, probably in an attempt to maintain their viability in a “movement” quickly being overtaken by Pepe, Kek, and other manifestations of Millennial juvenile jackassery.
As linked to above, by September 2016, I was openly warning of the danger of the Alt Right, especially since Alt Righters, including Johnson, were attempting to subsume the entire “movement” within the Alt Right, while at the same time advocating a “big tent” strategy. This “eggs in one basket” centralization approach was not only strategically dangerous (the collapse of the Alt Right would take down the entirety of American White racial nationalism) but it had the potential, even if “successful,” of destroying the essence of WN, burying serious racial activism under a pile of Pepe cartoons, screams of “Kek!,” trolling, RamZPauls and Baked Alaskas, men in their 60s wearing silly hats, Daily Shoahs, Beavis and Butthead sniggerings, and all the rest.
By early 2017 my anti-Alt Right attitude hardened, and it was clear to me that the Alt Right was a clear and present danger, perhaps the most serious internal threat the “movement” had ever (to that point) faced. Then came Unite the Right and its aftermath, and all the Quota Queens started to rewrite history to pretend that they were not fervent Alt Righters when being Alt Right was “cool.”
Likely, the only reason why the collapse of the Alt Right didn’t take the entire “movement” down with it was that there were always people who didn’t drink the Alt Right Kool-Aid, people who resisted the calls for amalgamation of WN, the Alt Right, and the Alt Lite. Further, Hailgate was, in retrospect, a godsend, since some folks started jumping off the Alt Right train back then, or else they would have been still riding that locomotive as it plowed into Heather’s fat flaps in Charlottesville.
…Perkins added in the same interview, in which she compared believing in Q to believing in Jesus Christ, as a matter of faith that transcends proof.
Well, sort of like anti-vaxxism, HBD, and Nordicism.
This is yet another reason why democracy is a failure. It’s true that Trump bungled things at the beginning, but he started taking it seriously in March, and since then, albeit with some hiccups, one cannot significantly fault the response – or at least not fault it compared to what Biden would have done in Trump’s place.
Blaming Trump for a situation created by China so as to elect a dementia patient is madness. If Biden wins, rest assured that the Quota Queens will have no contingency plans in place, and will express surprise and shock as they are deplatformed (or worse) to an even greater degree than they are now. Planning? They don’t need no stinkin’ planning! When things go wrong, they’ll just call their critics “insane” and “indecent” and it’ll be alright! Back to the movie reviews and stupid essays by Borat look-a-likes!
Behold the GOP:
“We as a party learned the hard way that in today’s world we need candidates other than boring old white people,”…
So, “boring old white people” should not vote for the GOP either. Good luck as a political party never again winning a single election.
Good to see that The Black Man is standing up for himself, against the Yellows. Hail the Negro! Next step: Mass migration of Africans to China, to take the land that properly belongs to the Black race. Black Man – there is nothing the Chinaman can give to you that is not already yours by right. Go to China and seize your rightful inheritance! EGI Notes strongly supports The New Black Panther Party’s boycott and wishes it well.
