A brief outline of 2018, with an emphasis on Der Movement and the Sallis Groupuscule.
1. Sallis contra Lewontin. I finally got around to formally (preliminary) demonstrate that “Lewontin’s Fallacy” applies to any form of human population grouping, including random grouping, mixed-race grouping, etc. That is, any human population, however chosen, will demonstrate “more variation within than between” – and this has nothing to do specifically with race, and retarded leftist “arguments” that assert that “within/between” somehow invalidates race, or worse, demonstrates that “Whites and Blacks are more genetically similar to each other than to members of their own racial group”, are absurd, and objectively and quantitatively absolutely wrong.
This was, in my opinion, by far my most important contribution in 2018 and, predictably, it was completely ignored by Der Movement. Indeed, even among readers of this blog, based on page views, I notice that criticisms of Der Movement get much more attention than any of my genetics-based posts, or book reviews (here or at Western Destiny), or any other such analysis.
Whether that is because activists are “hungry” for alternative and critical viewpoints of the “movement,” or simply because people prefer to read about “movement gossip” and infighting, I do not know.
However, the fact that groups ostensibly interested in these genetics-based matters – racialists, HBDers, etc. – studiously ignored this (and other similar material produced here) should tell you something. It’s “Who” and not “What.” Material of utility for White racial interests, material of interest to “race realists”- all of that is ignored if it is produced by the “wrong” people. Values get thrown out the window when personal and narrow ideological interests are at stake. Remember that when all those types protest about how much they prioritize ethical activism and White racial interests and “the pursuit of the truth.”
2. Reviews. Speaking of things that have been ignored, Bolton’s important biography of Yockey was available, so I got a e-copy, read it, and reviewed it found here. I also did a review of the “Whither Judaism and the West?” book chapter, found here.
3. Alt Blight. 2018 is the year that the Alt Right definitely and obviously collapsed, the bubble burst, the Alt Right fever broke, much to my relief – and just as I predicted as far back as 2016 (when all the heroic “movement leaders” were jumping on the Alt Right bandwagon). This has to be by far the single biggest “movement”-related story of 2018, at least on the American scene. And both proponents and opponents (Left and Right) of the Alt Right admit and acknowledge the collapse. Indeed, post mortems have been written from both sides of the political spectrum. It’s that obvious.
The problem is that the niche space of “movement” stupidity must be filled, like air rushing into a vacuum, and we are now seeing a resurgence of the Alt Wrong (see the Counter-Currents ethics issue below).
4. They’re not proud, boys. Concomitant with the collapse of the Alt Right, the Alt Lite has also degenerated, exemplified by the “Proud Boys” being chased out of LA bars by noodle-armed soyboys, and then essentially disowned by their creator. Are these the types you want to get under the “big tent” with?
5. Deplatformimg, persecution, and the rule of Antifa. One reason for the decline of the “Alts” and the “movement” as a whole, has been the inability to deal with a concerted effort by the System to target Far Right activists at various points of vulnerability. Rightists have been deplatformed from social media and various online financial entities, they’ve been targeted by lawfare and social pricing, and the Far Left Trump administration has let Antifa essentially conquer the American Street, so we have scraggly wanna-be leftists acting as the running dog enforcers of the globalist-big business-anti-White alliance. Antifa is now the de facto police force of the government and of globalist big business interests.
6. The Turd Emperor. This blog correctly and presciently identified Trump as a fraud and a vulgar ignorant buffoon back in 2015. Three years later, and after two years of a failed Presidency, most (but not all) of the Trump cheerleaders have realized that they’ve been “had, “and the intra-“movement” consensus is that Trump is a pathetic failure. However, the Quota Queens by and large take no personal responsibility for this fiasco of misplaced trust and enthusiasm; there will of course be NO accountability for the latest Man on White Horse Syndrome episode. Expect it to happen again.
7. Going counter to the ethical current. The ethical collapse of Counter-Currents is another story of 2018. That site has been in decline for several years, and the gaslighting of trying to blame the failures of WN 2.0 on WN 1.0 was one low point this year. But, as bad as that was, it was merely an appetizer to the two shoes dropping
First, we observed Counter-Currents embracing Derbyshire, doubling down on the good old boys network, despite the fact that Johnson in the past strongly denounced Derbyshire as an anti-WN, race-mixing opportunist, and also denounced WNs who embraced Derbyshire. Second, Johnson wrote that “Trevor Lynch” is going to be featured at the Jew Unz site. That’s astonishing, and not in a good way. It seems that with the death of the Alt Right, Counter-Currents is pivoting to the Alt Wrong.
More evidence of the Counter-Currents shift is this excerpt of a recent Johnson comment:
The mature thing for the American movement is to invest in individuals and organizations that are changing minds and bringing people over to our side, as opposed to failures who only bring shame upon us. Here’s my short list:
1. Counter-Currents and me
2. American Renaissance and Jared Taylor
3. VDare and the Brimelows
4. The Occidental Observer and Kevin MacDonald
5. Identity Europa and Patrick Casey
Of the five non-CC entities listed, three (60%) are HBD/Alt Wrong, with two (40%) – Amren and VDARE – being the fundamental pillars of the Alt Wrong. Johnson and Counter-Currents have thrown in their lot in with the Alt Wrong, and one can reasonably predict that in the long term Counter-Currents as a vehicle for White racial nationalism is finished. Also note that Johnson’s list is enriched in people and entities who “threw Spencer under the bus” after Hailgate. Also note that there is solidarity there for both the affirmative action program as well as for tin cup panhandling. This is the “movement” “amen corner” reinforcing each other’s biases and errors.
By the way, here is my comprehensive list of “individuals and organizations” that are of any use:
1. Ted Sallis and the Sallis Groupuscule (EGI Notes and Western Destiny)
I have had my disagreements with the WN 1.0 folks, but at least those people are of a more sound character when it comes to not selling out. I can’t imagine the likes of Duke, Strom, Roper, Linder (or Pierce when he was alive) writing for Unz, groveling to a race-mixer like Derbyshire, or anything else of that nature. Leave that to all the WN 2.0 and 3.0 heroes. Despite ideological disagreements, as well as disagreements on strategy and “optics,” I’m much closer in basic character to WN 1.0 than I am to any of the later permutations. All these guys keep on trying to reinvent the wheel, and they haven’t yet figured out that this won’t work.
Ron Unz lies a lot in an article about the Alt-Right which he penned last year but reposted yesterday. I think the strawman-per-word ratio in his id-shaped rant is higher than anything I’ve read outside of a feminist tumblrrhea screed.
His main contention is that the “alt-right” are being deplatformed and de-personed because representatives (whoever they are) exaggerate the criminal threat of latino immigration, and the Soylicunt Valley nerdos who have been thrust into the role of Speech Police can’t tolerate the lies.
This is an utter inversion of the reality, which is that the Big Tech Poindexters can’t tolerate the truths which dissident outposts daily level against the corrupt Globohomo worldview and nation-dissolving agenda.
The “alt-right” (really, a constellation of realtalkers who refuse to parrot neolibogisms) is silenced because they write truths that the masturbators of the universe don’t want to read.
Censorship has historically been used as a tool by the powerful to suppress the views of the powerless who threaten the former’s hold on power. That Unz can’t or won’t grasp this ineluctable fact of no-holds-barred status jockeying between antagonistic groups says a lot about what kind of resentful agenda motivates him.
How about all Unz contributors being upfront as to whether they are being paid by Unz and if so how much? And can any of us believe we’d see the day when Roissy makes more sense than Johnson?
8. Randy Phil. Rushton was exposed as a hypocrite, a race traitor, and a fraud – and by a fellow HBDer no less. Rushton fathered a child with a Negress. What’s next? Pierce having had a secret love child with a Jewess?
And of course all the Rushton fanboys either ignored the revelations or started with ad hominem attacks against the messenger Dutton, as if those personal attacks could in any way alter the pathetic and disturbing facts of the case. That’s HBD for you. But let’s give Dutton credit for some honesty here. Twilight of the Idols indeed.
9. Out of Africa. The Spencer and Johnson 23andMe results – emphasizing the absurdity of that test’s minor admixture estimates.
10. Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong. Typically wrong – Jack Nicholson as a prospective “alpha shitlord” – while any 30 second Google search can demonstrate that he’s a life-long liberal Democrat. A “jacked” Bezos making a “hard turn right” politically – except he didn’t. Good going there, Roissy, on both counts. “Shakin’ Stevens” and his Odinist perspectives – that is, when he’s not being a Red. Good going, Rowsell. Not to mention the “movement’s” humiliation about Trump, mentioned above. In Trump We Trust – until “we” don’t.
11. Can’t keep it in the pants. There was the Heimbach-Parrott and Spencer-Conte dramas. The lack of moral fiber and sexual self-control demonstrates a failure of leadership character. To be fair, the Spencer-Conte issue is murky, and has not been definitively established. The other incident is more definitive.
And, gee, Heimbach’s latest comeback attempt was short-lived. Try, try again. It must be great to have a “free pass” from Der Movement for having the appropriate ethnic ancestry. After all, even Baby Daddy Rushton is still worshipped in some circles.
The White race will be free only AFTER Der Movement, Inc. is destroyed.
