Odds and Ends, 12/10/19

Various issues.

UPDATE – the post now credits “Robert Hampton” for the low quality review.

Robert Hampton (not Greg Johnson?) unburdens himself:

Most World War II films like to portray America’s fighting force as an ethnic melting pot. In Midway, nearly all of the characters are Anglos and heartlanders who don’t reminisce about Brooklyn. 

As opposed to reminiscing about Brokeback Mountain.

The one clear exception is Gaido, an Italian from New York. 

That damn wop!

The historic American nation fights for itself.

Like John BasiloneNo, wait….


Basilone – the extended phenotype of guys like Johnson, who clearly exclude “Manila John” from possibly ever being accepted into “the historic American nation.”  No affirmative action for you, paisan.  Gaslighting Greggy and Raunchy Richie want to keep it all for themselves.

Gaido is captured by the Japanese after his plane is shot down. He’s thrown into the sea when he refuses to give the position of the American ships.

Ah…he’s expendable.  Why shouldn’t he sacrifice himself for real White men?

It’s dangerous to show heroic whites defeat evil yellow men.

Derbyshire may get offended.


Question: Do dumb dagoes still send “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents?  After all, Greg needs to fund going to the movies, so it’s all good!  Close to $100,000 for the latest fundraiser – remember, those who give live in the Golden Age today!  Just not in Brooklyn.    

Unlike Rand, I’m not going to imply Jack Merritt had it coming. His father’s grief must be immense. Yet he is waging an online political battle immediately after his son’s death at the hands of a Muslim.

We’ve seen this before. University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts disappeared in 2018. After police arrested an illegal immigrant, her father rather bizarrely defended Hispanics. “As far as I’m concerned,” he said, “they’re Iowans with better food.” He also attacked politicians who call for stricter border control, saying Mollie would have called their views “profoundly racist.” Her mother let an illegal immigrant who was related to the alleged killer stay in her home.

Kevin Sutherland was killed, apparently at random, by a black man on the Washington D.C. Metro on Independence Day 2015. He was stabbed repeatedly; no one tried to help.

The late Sutherland worked in liberal politics and had been an intern for Congressman Jim Himes. Sutherland’s Twitter feed was filled with attacks on the Confederate flag, Christianity, and conservatives. Then presidential candidate Chris Christie blamed “liberal policies” for the murder. Congressman Himes condemned him, accusing Governor Christie of “fearmongering and thinly veiled racism.”

In 2015, two black men raped a pregnant woman named Amanda Blackburn and shot her in the back of the head. Her preacher husband Davey Blackburn said he “forgave” the killers and hoped he could “get the opportunity to share the Gospel with these guys.” He also said, “Jesus takes what the world says is a tragedy and makes it beautiful.”

That same year, Islamic militants killed 129 people in Paris. In a video the New York Times called “moving,” the husband of one of the victims said he didn’t hate the killers. “I will not give you the gift of hate,” he said. “Even though it is what you were hoping for, responding to hatred with anger would be to fall to the same ignorance that made you the people you are.”

There’s also Amy Biehl, a young Fulbright scholar who traveled to South Africa to register blacks in the first all-race election in 1994. She was murdered by a black mob, despite her pleas that she was a “comrade.” Her parents showily forgave the killers, who were released without punishment because the Truth and Reconciliation Commission determined the murder was “political.” Indeed, her parents took the opportunity to honor those who “lost their lives in the struggle.” They gave jobs to two of the murderers.

How can we explain this? I believe it’s something beyond pathological altruism.

Yes, it’s those “high trust northern hunter-gatherers” in action. If the “movement” really believes all of that in the genetically deterministic sense (and apparently it does), then everything that Hood wrote is a warning not to put all our eggs in the “high trust” basket. Maybe we should have some input and leadership from some “low trust Neolithic farmers” to balance things out.

If even half our readers sent in ten dollars a month, let alone 10 percent of their income, I have absolute faith we’d triumph — and quickly.

Once again, Hood peddles the outrageous lie that all we need is just more money.  If you give that money to the “movement” as it currently exists, it’ll just waste it, just as it wasted the millions of dollars it already ran through, generating nothing but endless failure.

See this.  It’s already dead.

Richard Lynn, the stalwart defender of the race hypothesis, issues a challenge from on high to find a single instance in which Africans have higher IQs than Europeans and then claims that under such circumstances, “the evolutionary and genetic theory of these differences would be falsified.” Chanda Chisala then says, “Game on!” and manages to find one instance in which a small subset of black children outperform a much larger subset of white children on a series of exams.

Does this mean that Chisala refuted the race hypothesis in IQ? No. It means he refuted an unwise and arrogant statement made by Richard Lynn.

Putting “unwise and arrogant” and “Richard Lynn” in the same sentence seems to me to be a redundancy. 


True enough, finding exceptions does not disprove the clearly observed general trends of racial differences in intelligence. But that is not the point here. HBDer Lynn put forth a falsifiable hypothesis. The hypothesis was falsified. By Lynn’s standards – derived from his moronically unwise and pathetically arrogant statement – the hypothesis is incorrect. In reality, the real hypothesis, that of general trends in intelligence due to racial differences, has not been falsified.  But Lynn’s retarded, completely genetically deterministic, cartoonish views on IQ were falsified.  Yes, it was falsified in a somewhat unconvincing manner, but that is the fault of Lynn for framing the hypothesis the way he did.  I do agree with this:

Does this mean that Chisala refuted the race hypothesis in IQ? No. It means he refuted an unwise and arrogant statement made by Richard Lynn.

But we need to put Lynn ns the same category as Rushton – a fraud and a hypocrite.  It’s not enough to cover up Lynn’s manifest deficiencies by merely saying he was “unwise and arrogant” in one instance. That one instance is a reflection of the hand-waving, pseudoscientific, never admitting to being wrong, nature of HBD. This one instance is a peek at the rotten underbelly of the HBD travesty.

Spencer expresses himself.  And whose fault is that?  The “movement’s” affirmative action “leadership” – of which Spencer is a prominent member.

Even if most whites generally prefer a partner of their own race, many of them will choose someone of another race if he or she is younger and more attractive. They trade their whiteness (and sometimes money) for youth and beauty – at least as long as it is socially acceptable.

The most common example of this is probably white men marrying Asian women, which explains why 12% of the white men, but only 10% of the white women, marry outside their race.

This constellation also seems rather normalized among racial nationalists. The American Renaissance Conference even invited one of these men to give a speech on “The Arctic Alliance” earlier this year!

Of course.  The HBDers promote the grand Jeurasian future. Derbyshire, an Englishman married to a Chinatrix with mixed-race children and who is a Judeophile – is the leading proponent of this. So, of course, he’ll be featured prominently at Amren.

I agree with you. There was an article I believe on this website that stated white men whom date outside their race often do it out of lack of confidence.

Derb – “awkward squad” – so designated by his own mother.


“Movement” solipsism on display as follows.  A Counter-Currents commentator links to scientific research – real science, not 23andMe junk – clearly showing extensive New World admixture in the Argentinian population.  The “movement” peanut gallery responds thus:

Argentina is the worst Latin American example for you, because its white population is largely descended from recent immigrants from Europe, in about the 1900’s. That is certainly the reason they still have sizeable numbers of nearly pure whites.

Who cares about dat dere science?  Someone writes something on the Internet, so it must be true.  Every thought, every comment, every post from Der Movement instantly creates reality!  The Lathe of Heaven Syndrome.


Laugh at this:

You are painting with a very broad brush here. There is an edge of hysteria to this sort of MGTOW apocalypticism. I can’t help thinking that communicating such attitudes, even subliminally, must make a man less attractive to women.

Certainly, Greg is an expert on this matter.


After everything that’s happened, after the complete and humiliating collapse of the Alt Right, we still get this in December 2019.  Remarkable.  And, of course, rattling the tin cup for “D’Nations” – also in the name of the utterly discredited Alt Right:

Gifting TOO—We’re a Central Cog in the Populist, Alt Right Surge

Predicting eminence.

This investigation examined whether math/scientific and verbal/humanistic ability and preference constellations, developed on intellectually talented 13-year-olds to predict their educational outcomes at age 23, continue to maintain their longitudinal potency by distinguishing distinct forms of eminence 35 years later. Eminent individuals were defined as those who, by age 50, had accomplished something rare: creative and highly impactful careers (e.g., full professors at research-intensive universities, Fortune 500 executives, distinguished judges and lawyers, leaders in biomedicine, award-winning journalists and writers). Study 1 consisted of 677 intellectually precocious youths, assessed at age 13, whose leadership and creative accomplishments were assessed 35 years later. Study 2 constituted a constructive replication-an analysis of 605 top science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) graduate students, assessed on the same predictor constructs early in graduate school and assessed again 25 years later. In both samples, the same ability and preference parameter values, which defined math/scientific versus verbal/humanistic constellations, discriminated participants who ultimately achieved distinct forms of eminence from their peers pursuing other life endeavors.

That’s in Northern Italy and thus an assault against those blonde, blue-eyed, ultra-Aryan, Hallstatt Nordics there – like this fellow – and we can’t have that!

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.

So Much Winning!

The Slog Emperor.

Retarded and homoerotically obsessed Roissy commentators attack Trump critics, claiming that Trump has been WINNING and anything to the contrary is “fake news.”  Let’s review all that “fake news” then:

1. Having two years of a Republican congress and not doing a damn thing except making America more comfortable for CEOs and pursuing a Neocon foreign policy.

2. No wall.

3. Publicly advocating for increased “legal” immigration.

4. Sending troops to the border who did absolutely nothing and quickly left.

5. Increased illegal border crossings.

6. Being head of the federal government and DOING NOTHING about far left domestic terrorism, letting Antifa run riot throughout America attacking his own supporters while his Justice Department persecutes his own supporters.

7. Not mentioning Whites during his State of the Union address but praising and/or showing concern for every other group.

8. Agonizing over the “anti-Semitism” of Democrats and how Democrats are insufficiently loyal to Israel.

Need I go on?  So much winning!  MAGA! Pepe! Kek!

By the way, where are all those free speech initiatives?  I suppose I can add number nine:

9. Doing nothing about the free speech issue while blustering about it on Twitter like a jackass.

And finally:

10. Being a complete and utter failure and embarrassment, thus alienating the base and delegitimizing in the public “mind” the idea of right-wing populism.

“I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of Bikers for Trump,” Trump told Breitbart in the interview, which he later tweeted. “I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.”

Yeah…it would be bad – bad for those supporters, as Trump’s Justice Department indicts them for “hate crimes” while Trump tweets support for Jews and Israel.

Trump – an Antifa agent provocateur.

Question: Do they cheat on PISA tests as well?  Let’s ask Lynn and Sailer.

What you won’t see at Chateau Heartiste.

This is great.  The psychotic Left has within it all the potential for cannibalistic self-destruction, but the stupid Right is unable to take advantage of it.

Certified: A Type I numbnut.  Why wasn’t he wearing a Pepe t-shirt?  MAGA!  Kek!  Drunken podcasts in Alexandria loft apartments! Homosexuals “flirting” with effeminate soyboys at meetings!  Hermannson!  Lewis!  Leftist girlfriends let in with no screening!  Hail Kek!  Hail the Hobbit Hole!  Hail Der Movement!  Hail Yang!  Hail Spencer!  Hail nose candy!  Hail Pilleater! Hail!

Counter-Currents commentator pontificates on his proposed neo-Confederate Southern ethnostate:

…it might be possible to secure some foreign aid from a country like China. The US pays Egypt. SouthExit and maybe the Chinese (or the EU) pay you a couple billion annually in exchange for a base or two. The Gulf is well situated for future Chinese (or European) ambitions in central and South America.

China.  Of course.  Chinese military bases on White ethnostate territory.  What could go wrong?

Another commentator replies:

This is unbelievably naive and flatly ridiculous and insane. After you give the Chinese a foothold in your territory, they will inch on you, take more of your land and resources, and send more people of their own to gradually colonize and conquest your land without fighting an actual war, and by fighting an actual war if they deem they overpower you militarily. This is largely the pattern of the Chinese conquests and annexations of other people’s lands throughout history, all the more patent, intense, and thorough-going than even the Islam.

Quote right.  Although now the Silkers are silently weeping, and will console themselves with fantasies of being ordered around by black-booted Chinese girls with guns, or imagining themselves being White GIs invading Japan in 1945 and having Japanese schoolgirls impaling them with bamboo spears.

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

In contrast to Roissy-Mangan dietary advice, here is a Sicilian bodybuilder’s input.

Behold Der Movement. constant embarrassment.  Der Movement’s affirmative action policy has real consequences.  I’ve been warning you all about the consequences of Der Movement’s ethnic fetishism ever since the days of Legion Europa. Enjoy reaping the stupidity you have sowed and enabled.

Will Connolly, the 17-year-old boy who egged Anning, has become an online hero for the incident, which was captured on video.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday took Connolly’s side, telling reporters: “The full force of the law should be applied to Sen. Anning.”

Police allege Connolly, who calls himself “Egg Boy” online, assaulted the senator with the egg.

First, why is the assault “alleged?”  It is on film.  The soyboy admits doing it.  And it is not only assault but battery as well (although Australian law may differ from American on these fine points).

Thus, Connolly physically attacked an elected official for political reasons; this is political violence, hence terrorism.  Scott Morrison supports the terrorist and calls for the legal persecution of the victim of terrorism.  Thus, ”the full force of the law should be applied to” both Connolly and Morrison.

Mangan, Roissy, and Weightlifting Confusion

Drooling idiots.

Muscleman Mangan (*) and Roissy happily cite a study that says that training to failure with lighter weights gives the same strength and muscle mass benefits as higher weight (load) training. Any goddamn halfwit actually reading the abstract of that study would see the problems therein, especially if the halfwits were, like Mangan and Roissy claim for themselves, heroes of bodybuilding (using, as Roissy says, “big boy” weights). The relevant passage: 

Subjects were randomly allocated into a higher-repetition (HR) group who lifted loads of ~30-50% of their maximal strength (1RM) for 20-25 repetitions/set (n=24) or a lower-repetition (LR) group (~75-90% 1RM, 8-12 repetitions/set, n=25), with all sets being performed to volitional failure.

Hey, morons, 8-12 reps ARE NOT LOW REPS, HIGH WEIGHT SETS. OK? That’s in the “mid-range” of reps (the classic “hypertrophy range”), and 12 is at the borderline of “higher reps.” And, really, if someone can do 8-12 reps with up to “90% of their 1 rep max” would suggest that the “max” is no “max” at all. And, for goddsakes you morons, high load low rep sets ARE NOT DONE TO FAILURE, you pea brained imbeciles. 

REAL strength/power/mass training is with rep ranges of 1-5 (maybe 1-6 max), not to failure, with, optimally, a few minutes rest between sets, and with weights that are REALLY closer to the 1 rep max, not weights that can be performed 8-12 reps to failure. Ever hear of the 5×5 program, morons, which is at the higher range of the low rep spectrum and combines strength building with hypertrophy? And even lower rep (than 5) multiple sets of heavy weight will stimulate hypertrophy, although as one approaches the 1 rep max, strength building (including neural adaptions) becomes ever more predominant. 
But let’s not reality intrude on HBD fantasies now, shall we? 
* Mangan is the absolute retard who claimed, boldly with absolute confidence, that most Italian-Americans were of Northern Italian descent, because that’s the way his feeble mind could explain why Tricky Dick’s “estimates” of Southern Italian IQ (subsequently proven wrong by like, you know, actual IQ testing) doesn’t match with the fact (albeit unknown to Der Movement) that wops in America who are – contra Whey Protein, Low Iron Mangan – mostly of Southern Italian descent have levels of accomplishment higher than that of the Negroes and Hispanics whom Lynn insists are in the same general IQ range. And, of course, that US dagoes are of Southern origin is something that can be easily discerned by five minutes of googling, in contrast to Mangan’s iron-deprived cerebrum that conflates national region emigration rates to specific rates of immigration to particular receiving nations.
