Strom Speech

Interesting.

See this, emphasis added:

SOME PEOPLE get excited when Donald Trump speaks. I can understand that. He’s a hate-object and love-object for the rubes and their emotions run wild on cue, just as the Cunning Race intends. And he’s kind of unpredictable. Will he withdraw troops from Syria, or just move them around a bit? Will he tell us that we have to “stop all these Middle Eastern wars” — while simultaneously funding Israel’s war machine to the tune of more billions than the whole US budget used to be? — and continuing to run the “kill list,” and the never-ending drone attacks, and the seldom-publicized commando raids, all across the many nations that Israel considers enemies? Will he tell us he’s raising tariffs — or lifting them? Will he blather about the much-needed but totally imaginary WallOr will he tell us how much we love and need all those “highly-skilled” and “patriotic” non-White immigrants? Will he ever dare to use the word “nationalism” again? Or will he get teary-eyed about the “heroes” who fought against the Germans and against nationalism in the “good war”? When Donald Trump speaks, it can make your head spin.

But according to Greg, Trump is a sincere man of genuine greatness.

But that’s not the kind of speech I’m interested in hearing. I tune that garbage out just as automatically as I tune out commercials and animated Internet ads. Donald Trump’s speeches, and those of his rivals, might as well not even exist as far as I’m concerned.

Forget Donald Trump. This is the speech I want to hear:

“Ladies and gentlemen, fellow Americans. Today, America is restored. Today, a massive conspiracy to destroy our nation and people has been thwarted, and the conspirators and traitors have been arrested or fled — and I promise you that every single one of them will face justice.

Including those traitors ostensibly in the “movement?”

“Most of you have known — or at least sensed — that America was being led astray, led into degeneracy and suicide, flooded by enemy aliens, eviscerated by pointless wars — and that our hard-working, honest, and trusting people were being fed lies and were being ground down into poverty by the theft of their wealth. What you sensed was true.

“Many of you saw that the power structure erected by the world’s wealthiest and most powerful ethnic group, the Jews, was at the center of the conspiracy. And you were right. Such alien power has been removed, and had to be removed, and if the men behind that power even slightly threaten to return they will be pursued to the uttermost ends of the Earth. But far more shameful, far more evil, and far more worthy of punishment are those among our own kin — Americans and Europeans who willingly sold themselves and sold their own children’s future for money, and served the conspiracy by being its functionaries and its public faces. A special justice awaits such traitors, and it cannot and will not be evaded.

Some questions for Kevin Strom.  Do those traitors include the HBDers, who promote Jewish and Asian supremacism and divide Europeans against each other? Does include those like Johnson and Durocher who write for Unz, a Jewish HBDer who once claimed that White nationalism was the biggest threat to America?  Does it include Greg Cochran, who openly wrote that Jews should conquer Italy for use as a Jewish homeland?  Does it include Derbyshire, who not only mated with a Chinatrix, but who labeled “race purists” as “nuts” and who openly promoted miscegenation?  Does it include the White Judeophiles and “yellow supremacists” who enable Derbyshire?

“Today we restore America. Today, too, a New America begins with new principles and new laws that will make such a conspiracy impossible in the future — that will make true liberty possible again — that will assure our children’s future into an infinity that we can now begin to imagine but only they will know.

“The conspirators, who through their secret unity and through their manipulation and theft of our money gained great wealth, began by infiltrating and perverting our institutions of learning and scholarship and instruction. In a thousand different ways, they turned entire generations against their own kind, against their own culture, against their own survival. They then repeated the same kind of subversion and division on a larger scale by using their ill-gotten wealth and influence and academic prestige to manage and own the media of public entertainment and information: newspapers, magazines, film studios, broadcasting stations and networks, social media combines on the Internet. And with this multiplied power coupled with their secret unity of purpose they were able to gain control of the political process. No candidate can be elected or retain office without their vetting and permission. And any candidate or official — and even, in recent years, any scientist or scholar or private citizen — who defies the will of the conspirators is professionally and personally destroyed.

“In recent years, in fact, it has become increasingly obvious that the goal of this conspiracy has been and is to commit genocide — genocide against the founding people of America, and the founding peoples of Europe and European culture wherever they may be found. To say that the actions of this conspiracy are evil and immoral and intolerable and unacceptable is to vastly understate our case. The very existence of such a conspiracy is intolerable, wherever they may be on their timeline of genocide. The existence of the conspiracy — at least in our nation and the nations who have joined with us today — is now at an end.

“Today I have directed the Council of National Salvation, whose members I have carefully chosen from the National Alliance, and our best and most loyal scientists…

Ted Sallis?

…engineers, military men, and union, business, and spiritual leaders, to oversee a transition to the New America — our New America — and to appoint new men as necessary and create new institutions as necessary and make new laws as necessary for the rebirth of our people on the North American continent.

“The members of the former Congress and Senate, and officials of agencies private and public deemed by the Council to be a part of the conspiracy have been arrested and are awaiting trial. The media of mass information that illegitimately controlled the political process and were complicit in genocide, and the financial institutions that were defrauding the public, funding the conspiracy, and were therefore also complicit in genocide, have been nationalized and will operate henceforth under the direction of the Council.

“There is almost no danger of retaliation from the conspirators. The scientific and technological powers recently gained by our Alliance thanks to the patriotic scientists…

Ted Sallis?

…and businessmen who developed them have made us, our leadership, and in fact all Americans and allied Europeans, for all practical purposes immune from any weapons, including atomic weapons, that might be launched against us by the remaining conspirators. And any such attempt by the conspirators would be met with their total and instantaneous destruction as they well know. They will do as they are told.

“The conspirators have denounced our new order as “racist” and have attempted to stir up other nationalities against us, but their screeching is more and more falling on deaf ears. These other peoples now increasingly recognize that they, too, have been exploited and duped and cynically used by the conspirators, and are eager to cast off their chains and define and achieve their own destiny and self-determination, too. With our new powers and with the liberation of America and Europe comes a new and and more free world. A world in which money no longer rules, where money is a store of honest value and no longer a master. A world where the evils of multiracial, colonial empires will never exist again. A world where the evolution of Life and consciousness can resume its upward journey. A natural world no longer plundered beyond reason to feed the ever-growing maw of usury.

“All laws that prohibit crime or evil of any kind are still fully in place and will be enforced with more vigor than ever before. Those who think they can exploit the weak by taking advantage of the new situation will find themselves not only punished but completely excluded from our new society. Do right, all of you. I know that with very few exceptions, all of you will. The New America is really a new world. And it will be a world very much worth living in.

“The work of the National Council will be reported upon every evening, online, in the press, and on this network. Until the Council fully reorganizes our broadcasting system, we will be presenting the works of the greatest musical artists and composers on this network over the next several weeks, beginning tonight with the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. Good night and may Divine Providence bless our great undertaking.”

Now that’s the kind of speech I want to hear. Of course, when the real speech comes along there may be significant variations — it might not encompass all of America; it might just be the secession of a significant part. It might encompass more than just America. It might begin in another nation. But it will, it must, entail the defeat of those who are trying to kill us — who are committing genocide.

The specifics of the “powers” gained — powers that cannot be resisted — might not be what you think, either. You could think of those powers as what the great film director Alfred Hitchcock referred to in the plots of his films as the “MacGuffin.” It’s a made-up nonsense word for an important concept in fiction and drama. The word was coined by the English screenwriter Angus MacPhail who worked with HItchcock, but the concept is as old as the earliest stories ever told.

Now what is a MacGuffin? To a director, it’s the thing, and it could be anything, that the main characters want to have, must have, and which sets them fighting each other, killing each other, and all the rest. It could be the secret microfilm, as in Hitchcock’s North by Northwest. It could be the Maltese Falcon. It could be the gold in the hills or the oil in the valley. In Medieval tales, it might be the “Holy Grail.” In more modern works, it could be a new and secret weapon that cannot be resisted. It’s what the characters must have.

In my analogy, it’s what we must have. It doesn’t have to be an irresistible weapon as implied in my speech. It could be an irresistible anti-weapon, as I also suggested. It could be a new way of thinking adopted by so many of our folk that they’ll never support, or work for, or fight for the System that is killing us again. It could be a new spiritual movement that unites a million or ten million White people in a new society-within-a-society so strong that it comes to power silently and bloodlessly. It could well be something that has not only not been thought of yet, but hasn’t even been conceived abstractly. But whatever our MacGuffin turns out to be, we must have it. We must win. And building the consciousness that we are right, that we must win, among more and more of our folk — is precisely what makes it more and more likely as time goes on that what we need will be created and will be given to us and to no one else. And once we have what I lightheartedly call the MacGuffin — once we have what We Must Have — then we will finally be able to do What Must Be Done.

But then we have a second, worse Strom piece.  See this.

The immigration laws of this country were crafted to keep America a White nation, and in 1924 an immigration law was passed that in fact caused America to become Whiter and Whiter with each passing decade.

Cut immigration from Southern and Eastern Europe, allow Colored immigration from the Western Hemisphere.


Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.


I mean, yes, the Reed-Johnson act was justified in principle to stabilize America’s ethnic balance, but it should have stopped non-White immigration from the New World, in addition to the other immigration restrictions.

…despite some unfortunate anti-Slavic attitudes expressed before and even during the war…

I like how Strom minimizes that anti-Slav attitudes were at the very heart of National Socialist race theory, and that the use of Slavic soldiers by Germany was purely instrumental (and only after the war in the East started going sour and more manpower was need), and that Hitler had to be forced – almost kicking and screaming – to allow Vlasov to recruit men. Of course, there was differences of opinion on these matters in National Socialist Germany, and no doubt one can find quotes that are less hostile to the Slavic peoples (most of which no doubt date to after Stalingrad), but how can one deny Hitler’s attitudes on this question and his ultimate war aims in the East?


Strom is channeling his inner Pierce in that second piece, and I do not mean that as a complement.

Odds and Ends, 10/28/19

Several issues.

About the MX missile.  I don’t know what’s worse there – the stupidity of Ronnie Raygun and Caspar Jewberger wanting to have the MX regardless of the utility of the basing scheme, Jimmy Carter’s liberal naivete, or the pure selfishness of those Utah ranchers (societal consensus, eh?) putting their personal comfort and economic interests ahead of the security of their nation. As far the first goes, I remember “dense pack” (accurately termed by some wags at that time as “dunce pack”- a completely stupid gamble which, if the underlying premise was wrong, would have led to the entire MX force being destroyed by a small surgical Soviet strike). Jimmy Carter was always a pathetic embarrassment, and I guess that high trust northern hunter gatherers with their jokes about “commodes” would sell out their nation for another head of cattle.  Winners one and all no doubt. The best option would have been the Scowcroft plan, minus the stupidity of “arms control.”  The Midgetman as a mobile deterrent force was a good idea, and could have constituted the bulk of the American ICBM force. Having a limited number (but more than just 100) of MX missiles in silos would then have made sense (but not “dense pack,” just regular silo deployment), if those missiles were held in reserve in case a surgical first strike was necessary (with the retirement of both the Titan II and then the MX, America currently has no ICBM with a heavy throw weight, and is now dependent on the aging Minuteman III).

You must be a woman, throwing insults at awake men who don’t buy the fairy tale that females are anything but mindless robots who follow anything that suits their temporary interests in society.
Only a small percentage of women can actually think for themselves. The rest are just parrots of the established set of ideas that society tells them is correct.
And your claim that the majority of white women vote for “populist” parties is a laughable hoax. Prove it.
If only white women voted, I’d venture to say that not a single nationalist party would come to power ever again.
The only language that women understand is brute force.

Excellent.  Excellent.

A sane woman:

Women will be welcomed and honored in the movement when they take seriously their roles as respectful daughters, faithful wives, dignified mothers, and wise matrons. I assume male hostility is caused by the lack of these feminine roles in a man’s life. And I am not upset or offended by male hostility. How can it be otherwise? Men react to women. Ladies, know your place, in the home and on the farm, not in the office or at the ballot box.

If we assume this is really a woman, we note that she is more realistic about the female, and more considerate of male interests, than is Greg Johnson.  Very revealing indeed.

Another high trust northern hunter gatherer no doubt.  Building that societal consensus and all. No different than a typical organized crime Afrowop swarthoid engaged in illegal alien smuggling for money.  All equally disgusting.

Of course the Colored Chinese criticize the USA for “racial inequality.”  After all, White-hating Yellows must make common cause with their White-hating Black and Brown brothers as part of their Tropical Alliance.  And Derbyshire’s “Arctic Alliance?”  A pathetic figment of his imagination, a sweaty fantasy engaged in as he performs his “measured groveling” (his words, not mine) to “Rosie.” 

Once again I ask – does Unz pay contributors to The Unz Review?  Just asking, because I wonder what motivates the alleged “White nationalists” Johnson and Durocher to contribute there.  After all, Johnson has his own blog, and Durocher used to regularly contribute to Counter-CurrentsThe Occidental Observer, and other WN blogs.  Why write for a HBD Jew who previously labeled White nationalism as the biggest threat to America?  It’s not just the shekels, is it?

One can ask another question about Durocher, but, no, I’ll just sit back and laugh at the dunce-like utter cluelessness of Der Movement.  Dr. Jekyll is becoming a dim memory by now.

The HBD-Nordicist-Ethnonationalist alliance continues.

Skorzeny and Jeelvy

Two idiots.

This book, and this one is also on the same subject, about a minor but very interesting episode of WWII, deconstructs the Skorzeny myth. These books persuasively argue that Skorzeny was an inept blowhard, a publicity hound who got credit for a successful raid to which he contributed little and actually almost ruined. General Student and others deserve the real credit.

Skorzeny, worshipped by some in Der Movement, is a clear example of Der Movement’s obsessions and fetishes.  An Austrian Nazi – and ostensibly a politically dedicated Nazi – Skorzeny also I presume wins points because of his negative views of Italians, as chronicled in Irving’s Hitler’s War. But, alas, the Aryan Superman Skorzeny was not only an incompetent fraud, but also a traitor who worked for Jews.

I mean, too bad he’s not alive today, he’s got what it takes to be a WN 2.0 hero!  Maybe Unz would give him a column at The Unz Review.

The establishment has to pretend like we don’t exist and prop up alt-lite grifters and milquetoasts. It’s called “unthinging”.

At the same time, another wing of the establishment is censoring those grifters, who are more fragile to censorship than us, because they depend on numbers rather than truth.

The beast is scratching at itself, folks. The beginnings of victory are visible.

Victory is coming!  All you gotta do is send in dem dere “D’Nations!”  Remember those who give live in the golden age today!  This guy writes for Counter-Currents and has the nerve to talk about “grifters.”  These guys got balls the size of Jupiter.

Reverse Sallis’ Law

It’s comical.

Sallis’ Law essentially says that in virtually every context, in every possible situation, Der Movement will have something bad to say about White ethnics, particularly Southern Europeans.

The opposite is true as well – a sort of Reverse Sallis’ Law – in virtually every context, in every possible situation, Der Movement will have something good to say about Nordics (or “Nordish”).  A recent laughable example of this was brought to us by Durocher, writing for the Jew Unz site, who, after regaling us with the horrors of MENA admixture in Southern Europe, subsequently told us that Siberian/East Asian admixture in Northern Europe is “a great benefit to humanity.”  Why, of course it is.

Here we see another example from Counter-Currents (emphasis added).  About Hubert Humphrey:

Hubert Horatio Humphrey, Jr. (1911-1978) was a deeply Minnesotan man. He was born in Wallace, South Dakota, a territory that is a cultural extension of Minnesota. His father’s family were of New England Puritan stock. His grandmother, Addie Regester Humphrey, taught at a Quaker school, and Humphrey’s mother, Christine Sannes, was from Norway. Humphrey was baptized into his mother’s Lutheran church, but he worshiped later in life as both a Methodist and a Congregationalist. Humphrey was thus genetically a mix of Minnesota’s native Nordic groups and culturally a mix of Minnesota’s deeply Protestant religious milieu.

Not surprisingly we learn:

Humphrey believed from his time in Baton Rouge that “discrimination” was what was driving black lack of accomplishment, and he sought to end it in Minneapolis.

And even less surprisingly:

Also, Humphrey was part of the group of talented men who got behind “civil rights” and sold it to the American public. They were probably the critical part of the coalition that allowed “civil rights” to occur in the first place. Essentially, adherents of “civil rights” – those men who pushed the Civil Rights acts of 1957 and 1964, as well as the Voting Rights Act of 1965, were valorous white men with deep roots in America’s past.

So, Humphrey was a race traitor, a disgusting monster who helped unleash the Black Plague upon America, who helped unleash “civil rights” and racial integration upon America, who helped unleash the 1965 Immigration Act upon America, who have caused untold suffering on countless White Americans, who have destroyed White American EGI, and who have doomed White Americans to eventual minority status and racial destruction. The conclusion derived from all of that?  Well – 

Hubert H. Humphrey is exactly the sort of person we need on our side.

Of course he is!  How could you ever doubt it?  The Hubert Humphreys of today fill Antifa cadres, vote for Obama, and want to outlaw White nationalism, they believe miscegenation is “God’s will,” but, by golly, these are the sort of people we need on our side!  Do we need any folks like Antonin Scalia on our side? No sir!  But folks like the “valorous” Humphrey – they are a great benefit to humanity, and don’t you forget it!

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:

Greg Johnson

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:

Greg Johnson

Posted September 14, 2019 at 5:01 pm | Permalink

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 Basic Foundation of White Nationalism

Race as nation.

The Left (and the System in general) pretends to be confused about what White nationalism is – “there is no generalized White nation” they proclaim – or they stupidly and mendaciously conflate White nationalism with “White supremacy.” 

Putting aside all of the details and all of the various permutations of White nationalist thought, the concept is very simple and very basic – extending the concept of “nation” to incorporate the entire race (typically meaning Europeans as a whole), so that the concept of national identity and national allegiance, at its highest level, focuses on race, rather than on particular ethnic groups constituting that race.

Nationalism is an ideology and movement characterized by the promotion of the interests of a particular nation,[1] especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining the nation’s sovereignty (self-governance) over its homeland. Nationalism holds that each nation should govern itself, free from outside interference (self-determination), that a nation is a natural and ideal basis for a polity,[2] and that the nation is the only rightful source of political power (popular sovereignty).[1][3] It further aims to build and maintain a single national identity—based on shared social characteristics such as culture, language, religion, politics, and belief in a shared singular history[4][5][page needed]—and to promote national unity or solidarity.[1] Nationalism, therefore, seeks to preserve and foster a nation’s traditional culture, and cultural revivals have been associated with nationalist movements.[6] It also encourages pride in national achievements, and is closely linked to patriotism.[7][page needed] Nationalism is often combined with other ideologies, such as conservatism (national conservatism) or socialism (socialist nationalism) for example.[2]

Thus, again, White nationalism is simply putting the race as a whole as the nation instead of nations based on particular ethnic groups. The latter certainly can still play a role, and those nations can continue to exist (and should),  but the highest form of national allegiance is to the race – Our Race Is Our Nation, the “ORION” theme. The idea that nationalism has to refer to a pre-existing nation-state is ludicrous and ahistorical; indeed, many current nation states exist because of the pre-existing nationalism of those who envisioned the state and actualized it into existence.

Everything described in the Wikipedia quote above holds with respect to White nationalism – self-determination, political power, identity, etc.

It is not easy to formulate an argument that whites, uniquely among the world’s peoples, lack any moral right to organize in defense of their interests or to maintain homelands of their own. So our enemies do not, in fact, attempt to formulate such arguments; they simply lie. The lying takes the form of name-calling, and consists in the discrepancy between the dictionary definition and the definition-in-use of devil terms.

Yes, and that lying includes dishonesty about the meaning of White nationalism, as discussed above.  Lying about White nationalism is simply a malicious racial attack against Whites and White interests.

Sallis’ Law Confirmed Once Again

And other news.

Johnson writes this, so….

Was Italy unified? It’s still racially, and thus IQ-wise, and thus everything else wise, split in 2 as it ever was.Southerners who emigrate to the North still frequent each other, and there’s very little mixing between the two real Italies even at the “acquaintance” level. Then of course everyone in the “classes that matter” pretends to things being other, and it makes all quite happy. (Including the beneficiaries of the billions spent to “bridge the gap”, along the same lines of USA’s gap-bridging, and with equal outcome).

The Bossi family testifies to the lack of mixing between the two. Hail Padania!

The northern Italians have a saying, which translated into English is that Garibaldi didn’t unite Italy so much as he divided Africa.

You have none of those Africans in leadership positions in Der Movement.  Thus, you must be enjoying unprecedented success.  Hail Victory!

I couldn’t get past the first half hour of this film, probably due to its tedious pace and attention to the extreme decadence of the Italian Aristocracy. If you’re going to glorify aristocracy, I’ll accept the British, but the Italians can’t figure out how to practice self-control.

As long as you don’t bend over to pick up the soap in a shower stall at Oxford or Cambridge.

S Italy was a mess under the Bourbons. It got much worse after Italy was unified. It got so bad that by 1880 the S Italians fled to America and brought their mafia government here. Wretched refuse indeed.

Indeed!  What we need instead are more Aryan Barbarians dancing around cemeteries in swastika-soled boots.  Hail Victory!

Sallis’ Law confirmed once again. It’s a law of nature more definitive than that of, say, gravity or electro-magnetism. As well, my open call for White ethnics to abandon Der Movement is also further legitimized. Just leave it to the swastika-soled boots, drunken podcasts, Pepe, homosexual flirting at meetings, etc. crowd and sit back and watch it fail, as it has for the last 50-100 years.

 
The following is perhaps not unrelated to the preceding – Zman:

Another reason co-called conservatives were happy to call Koch a right-winger is the Left was happy to call him a right-winger. The best maneuver in the Progressive playbook is to select the leaders of their opponents. They focus their attention on one soft target, making that person the symbol of their cause. That person then becomes the easily mocked and ridiculed leader of the opposition. For example, they turned the alt-right into a joke by cultivating Richard Spencer as the face of the movement.

Yes, he’s right about Spencer, but Zman’s buddy, Gaslighting Greg, is no better.  And ALL the rest of them. Blaming Spencer alone – or even predominantly – for the collapse of the Alt Right is ludicrously naive or dishonest to the point of breathtaking mendacity. I for one was denouncing the Alt Right, and predicting (and hoping for) its downfall, even at its peak in 2016 and early 2017. The only thing that surprised me is how quickly it collapsed; even I couldn’t predict the astonishing levels of stupidity and ineptness coming from that distortion of racial activism.

The racially superior hero expresses himself.  Yes, at which point they’ll just ban you anyway, and invent ever more narrow speech codes to justify it.  Anyone with an ounce of sense understands that the free speech issue is discrete not continuous.  You either have it or you do not. Trying to parse different levels of censorship means that you’ll always be at the mercy of the censor and their changing standards.  Why does Spencer believe that any “defined” YouTube policy will last a second longer than the start of SPLC/ADL screeching about “White supremacists taking advantage of loopholes” and Huffpost/Guardian articles asking (i.e., ordering) YouTube to “do something about it?”

It is one thing to recognize the reality of censorship and try to do something about it, both short term (adjusting to the reality) and long term (fighting for pure free speech rights).  Yes, it is one thing to deal with the reality while vigorously denouncing it, making arguments against it, and, perhaps, getting involved in the political process to deal with it.  It is another thing entirely to be so naive and simple-minded that you actually believe that Internet/social media entities would establish a definitive and permanent set of rules and guidelines. They are not playing by a set of idealistic rules; their rules and guidelines are, and will remain, purely utilitarian.  If it shuts down Far Right speech, then that’s the rule. If it doesn’t, then the rule will be changed until it does.  You do not embrace speech codes and call for a “clearer statement” of them.  While dealing with the reality, you oppose the reality, and, realistically point out what I’m saying here – that there can be no compromises on free speech, because once the precedent is set, the “line” dividing acceptable from non-acceptable will always be redrawn for political purposes.  And as I’ve written about before, let no one believe that the over-rated “successes” in Europe (with their own speech codes) in any way argues against this.  Those “successes” are for the most part small wins in minor skirmishes, confined within narrow guidelines of acceptability, and whenever any leader or spokesmen steps out of line, it’s prison or fines for them. Why should Americans so blithely give up on free speech, then?  And I don’t want to hear about “free speech is the government, and private entities can do what they want.”  First, these social media giants are essentially utilities and borderline monopolies and should be regulated as such. Second, it is NOT TRUE that private entities can “do what they want” with their property.  Let’s see a White homeowner publicly advertise selling or renting only to Whites, let them state that, for example, they refuse to sell or rent to Blacks, Hispanics, or Muslims (of any race).  You’ll see then how quickly “private property rights” evaporate.

In summary, again, Zman has a point.  Spencer is so shallow that he makes a piece of tissue sliced by a microtome look as deep as the Grand Canyon by comparison.

Speaking of shallow: “The devastation is the most important thing,” after all.  A man of genuine greatness!

I laugh at how articles about “super commuting” completely  ignore a major reason – perhaps the major reason – for such commuting, and for long commutes in general – RACE.  That is, White workers cannot, or will not, live in or around those urban areas that have the jobs because those same urban areas and their surroundings are infested with “vibrant” Color.

Granted, long commutes in more rural regions have other causes, some alluded to in the article, but the fact is that long commutes are still overwhelmingly a blue state coastal and Rust Belt phenomenon.  It is something found wherever you have large numbers of Blacks and Hispanics and the flight of Whites away from them.  It is another symptom of White Flight, and another indication that the Contamination of Color is metastasizing away from the urban cores into surrounding suburbs, and into smaller cities as well.  Whites need to keep on moving farther and farther away to escape the rising tide of Color, but the jobs stay where they are. Hence, the long commutes.
