However, my theory is based on the proposal that Western uniqueness derives ultimately from unique ancestral environments in northwestern Europe, with emphasis on a north-south genetic cline in the relative genetic contributions of northern hunter gatherers, Indo-Europeans, and Early Farmers from the Middle East.
So, essentially, the “West” is “northwestern Europe.” The interesting thing is how the reality of Der Movement is converging on my parody of it. Long time readers of EGI Notes are aware of my description of Der Movement as believing that Europe is only that which is to the north of Vienna and the West of Berlin, and now, essentially, the HBD-Nordicists are promoting “theories” that essentially say in actuality (substituting “the West” for “Europe”) what I have been writing in mocking ridicule. Basically, parodying Der Movement is becoming ever more difficult, because “movement” reality converges upon, and then surpasses, what one says in sarcasm.
The aforementioned “theory” works only if you believe that areas of Europe outside of the northwest, including areas enriched in Neolithic farmer ancestry, are not part of the West, and that the peoples deriving from those areas are not genetically constituted for traits defining “Westerness.” .
I don’t know of any serious scholar of the West (*) who believes that. And Yockey, whose knowledge and understanding of Western history and culture dwarfs that of various “movement” “rock stars” certainly didn’t believe it.
This is just warmed over Kempism, “just so” stories promoting intra-European division and doing nothing but supporting my contention that so-called “White ethnics” have no place in Der Movement, Inc. and instead should look to the formation of a New Movement based on different principles.
But I suppose that after the grand failure of the Alt Right – the Alt Right being supported by all the august “movement” personages at the same time I was presciently denouncing it – squandering the world historical opportunity of 2016, there is an impetus to devise new intellectual defenses of the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program. Only Pure Genetic Westerners need apply! Spencer and Johnson to the vanguard, oh glorious leaders, grant us final victory! Valhalla awaits!
For the benefit of new readers, I want to once again clarify my position on HBD. When I write that HBD is a political movement aimed at subjugating Whites to Jews and Asians, I do NOT mean that all, or most, or even many, HBDers actually have that as their explicit agenda. I do NOT mean that most HBDers cackle with delight as they plan the downfall of the White race, and I do NOT mean that masses of HBDers get together to plan the subjugation of Whites. Most White HBDers are no doubt sincere in their beliefs; they are useful idiots being manipulated by the relatively small number of HBDers who do actually have an anti-White agenda of replacing kinship-based racialism with aracial cognitive elitism, setting up a racial hierarchy with Jews and Asians on top, and promoting Jeursasian mongrelization.
Thus, following the tenets of HBD to their logical conclusions will inexorably lead to the aforementioned subjugation of Whites to Jews and Asians, even though most (White) HBDers would deny that they desire such an outcome and would scoff at the possibility. However, the wire-pullers behind the scenes know very well how to make the HBD poison more palatable to the dupes, how to add sugar to the poison to make it go down more effectively. If HBD rhetoric was just Jewish and Asian supremacism, it would not have such a following. But they add to the mix obvious truths about Negroes that add credibility to the dogma, and then they titillate the more sweaty of the ethnic fetishists by putting Afrowops at the bottom of the racial hierarchy, and by asserting that while Med swarthoids are cringing stupid subhumans, Nords are really smart – albeit not as smart as Jews and Asians. And Nords, and only Nords, are the real Westerners! Just ignore the leering Levantines and grinning Orientals behind the curtain. Move on, move on, there’s nothing to see there! And the useful idiots eat it all up. With gusto.
Do not misunderstand me. I am not denying important differences between Europeans, and I have discussed such differences here, including cognitive and behavioral differences – and some of those differences may be linked to national variation in culture and achievement. Where I differ is the idea that a particular set of traits associated with one subsection of Europeans is what defines “the West.” Instead, I believe “the West” is best defined as an emergent property of the traits and national histories of all the types of (Western) Europeans, North and South, together. The complexity and richness of the West and its civilization is, I believe, also due the synergy of these various traits and histories. All of these components are important and cannot be isolated; the West is not just a derivation of one set of the European peoples. The fact that the “theory” in question is merely a variation of the same Guntherite Kempism we’ve all seen before suggests that it is, ultimately, an intellectual defense for the same old tired “movement” dogma.
Further, the idea that varying percentages of the same types of ancestral stocks can be so starkly genetically deterministic so as to allow for a sharp line to be drawn with respect to behavioral-cultural traits is an extreme stretch. If you are willing to go that far, then you would have to consider all of the implications. Is smug, self-righteous, destructive sick SJWism also so biologically deterministic, with such sharp territorial delineations? Is hyper-collectivist conformism of belief in that SJWism equally so genetically and biologically deterministic?
And, I must say, accusations of “ethnic hurt feelings” are transparent projection. Long time readers of EGI Notes have read some extremely harsh criticisms here of swarthoids and other “White ethnics,” up to and including calling for a genetic culling of the worst 10-20% of the population (that could be done via sterilization instead of other measures). This blog has also praised the English and Germans as being the top of the European crop in terms of cultural, technical, scientific, humanistic intellectual, etc. achievements over the last few centuries; in addition, I’ve always been extremely impressed by the per capita technical achievements of the Scots. Durocher was alerted to North vs. South European differences in brain structure from this blog. I write what I perceive as the truth about any and all groups, regardless of “ethnic feelings” – hurt or otherwise. In contrast, when is the last time you read or heard any of the Nord-fetishists say anything critical about Northwest Europeans – other than to assert that they are just too noble and altruistic and disinterested for their own good, “criticism” that is actually thinly veiled praise? And those guys certainly have nothing good to say, ever, about swarthoids or hunkies. They are the ones whose “ethnic feelings” preclude them from ever legitimately criticizing their own group or praising other types of Europeans. Pot, meet kettle.
Speaking of HBD – I don’t know, maybe this reflects neurotic behavior? Or just being a juvenile jackass? Actually I don’t mind HBDers acting the buffoon. It fits. Like a glove.
Watch this. That is the future of America. And if you think that’s just an isolated case, you are in complete delusional denial. That’s the norm in American academia today, not the exception. Enjoy! And while the guy who made the video may be a milquetoast civic nationalist type, we should thank him for bringing this to our attention, and speaking out in class against the madness.
By the way, I just noticed that Greg Johnson describes himself thus:
My Facebook account has been terminated because I am a white advocate.
Not White nationalist, but “white advocate.” The ethnonationalist-HBD-Nordicist alliance continues to take shape. “White advocate”- please.
