Something is missing.
This is a good podcast as far as it goes, particularly with respect to the DACA fiasco.
But something is missing. I did not hear the comment: “We here were naïve about Trump, we exhibited poor judgment, we were wrong and others who long ago identified the truth about Trump were right.”
But, no, they cannot do that. But let me ask one question to the readers here. Some of the readers of EGI Notes are, I assume, also readers of Amren (and other standard “movement” sites). So, the question to you, dear readers, is this: Which site, months before the election, correctly identified Trump as an unworthy buffoon and beta race cuck; and which enthusiastically pro-Trump site told you that Trump was “the last hope for White America?”
You know the answer to that, don’t you? You also know that you – and by “you” I mean the “movement” rank-and-file – will do nothing about it, and will continue to support a leadership that has let you down time and time again.
Truth be told, many years ago, the Legion Europa project attempted to reason with the “movement.” Years ago, when I was interviewed by Robert Griffin for his book, I outlined the types of activities that racial activists can do – centered around those that look to the Legionary movement for inspiration and/or those also centered around community activism – to actually make a difference. What happened? The Legion Europa project was either ignored or attacked; the advice in Griffin’s book went for nothing, as if I was speaking to the wind. The “movement” did not like the message, no, actually, the “movement” did not like the messenger, so it was all for nothing.
And old saying: “Every nation gets the leadership it deserves” The same applies to racial activists – all of you get the leadership you deserve. And now, the American “movement” sits around and scratches its collective (empty) head and wonders how they got fooled once again by a false “man on white horse” hero.
And so, the “movement” talks about “pattern recognition” – without recognizing the patterns inherent in its own failures.
Can you recognize any patterns? Good luck with that.
Troubling dysgenic decline.
This video is a very interesting podcast from 2016 between Drs. Salter and Woodley concerning the real trends in changing population IQ. While IQ is not a topic I often discuss, it is important, and is a topic that is tainted by pseudoscience from both the Left as well as the Right. I do not know much about Woodley, but he sounds like a solid and honest academic from this podcast, so let’s consider some major points (as an aside – I wish more such excellent podcasts like this would be made by Salter).
First, we are in the midst of a troubling dysgenic decline in real IQ – perhaps as much as approximately one IQ point per decade.
Second, it is interesting that some of the more “culture-loaded” IQ tests are the most heritable, suggesting gene-culture ties.
Third, the Flynn effect mantra of the Left is put into its proper perspective, as something not measuring raw heritable g-loaded IQ, and in fact obscuring the reality of a dysgenic loss of IQ that is causing a relative decline in the production of geniuses, scientific/technical innovations, and important cultural artifacts.
Fourth, allegedly “fair” IQ tests like Raven’s are not so “fair” at all, and not as g-loaded as presumed. Although not mentioned in this podcast, if Raven’s is not “fair” do you suppose PISA test scores are? The pseudoscience is, as mentioned above, from the Right as well as the Left.
Fifth, although I’m not much interested in sports, the fact that reaction times have been slowing over the past century provides food for thought – thought indirectly linked to racial activism since the “bread and circuses” masses love sports, and thus sports, as part of mass pop culture, affects the race-culture problem.
I note there is a rough correlation between sociopolitical views and ideas about athletic performance over time. Those on the Left are more prone to “overrate the present” and lionize (mostly Colored) modern athletes as far superior to the (mostly White) athletes of the past. Those on the Right are less likely to casually dismiss the “traditional sports heroes” of the past.
Now, if reaction times are really slowing, then what can we say about athletic performance in sports in which reaction time is important – hitting a baseball for example (or boxing or hockey)? It puts into question leftist assumptions rooted in jock sniffing the Negro athlete. The components of performance related to reaction time – fundamental for some sports – would seem to be declining, not improving, over time.
Indeed, reaction times differ by race, with Negroes being the slowest, which again makes one question whether the Negro athlete of today is superior to the White athlete of the past (and, of course, intra-racial White-White cross-era comparisons of declining reaction time question leftist assumptions about sports as well). One can make counter-arguments that athletes do not represent the overall population, and that Victorian England was one specific sample, and that of course other factors than reaction time are important in athletic performance, etc. but still, the idea is provocative. The Caste Football pro-White sports types probably need to look into the implications of declining reaction times in making cross-era sports comparisons, implications favorable to a narrative of a Golden Age of White American sports.
In any case, getting back to the main topic, the loss of IQ, coupled with the worsening racial situation (increases in the population of the dumbest races) means that dark (in all meanings of that word) times are ahead for humanity, unless these trends can be arrested and then reversed.
Good essay and video.
Which is the video version of this.
I have written about racial envy and resentment, which I suspect is the root cause of much anti-White hostility, see here.
Donald J. Trump: anti-White leftist cuck.
President Donald Trump included the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups in condemning violence after a white nationalist rally, the White House said on Sunday, the day after he was criticized on the left and right for not explicitly condemning white supremacists.…the White House said in a statement that Trump’s message on Saturday “condemns all forms of violence, bigotry, and hatred, and of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi, and all extremist groups. He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.”
I have one question for all the Trump fanboys, for all the heavy-breathing fantasy-mongers of “4-D chess, for Roissy and his homoerotic obsessions, and for all the rest of the so-called Alt Right: when has Trump publicly denounced Antifa?
We all know the answer to that, don’t we?
Let’s look at this: Trump has refused to denounce actual violent leftist terrorists, people who are his avowed enemies, people who attack his own supporters; on the other hand, Trump publicly denounces law-abiding individuals who simply wanted to hold a public rally, some of whom are Trump supporters.
Trump is an absolute omega male ultra-cuck, a dishonorable empty vessel bereft of any integrity whatsoever. Donald J. Trump, with his Jewish family connections, mixed-race grandchildren, love of Negroes, and his embracing of “dreamers” – coupled to his attacks against Sessions – proves what he really is, and always has been. It also shows what the insanely obsessed Trump fanboys are also.
So, Spencer, if I and Johnson are unacceptable, get some input from Taylor.
Do not announce in advance, wear uniforms….Yes, I agree. Well organized. Can’t control the optics, should be smaller and more cohesive – agreed, and that’s a major point of my Ragnarok post. I stand in solidarity with the Unite the Right, but, like Greg, believe things could have been done better. “Mania to marginalize themselves “ – couldn’t say it better myself.
I agree – overcoming. We need to overcome adversity. Can Spencer and Greg Johnson overcome their feud and start working together? That will be a real “white pill.” Spencer and the Alt Right need some input from older, more experienced activists. Ironically enough, folks who attended, or supported, a rally called “Unite the Right” continue to criticize Counter-Currents. Spencer should contact Greg and attempt to solve this problem.
Also, in the spirit of truth-telling, MW needs to acknowledge that perhaps one reason the Unite the Right event has been associated with the Alt Right is that the Alt Right itself has been giving that impression, see AltRight.com
Antifa declared as a terrorist organization. Yes, indeed. Who can do that? The “God Emperor” with nary a cross word for Antifa but who denounces “White supremacists?” “America’s Senator” who, while he is not being “beleaguered” by the “God Emperor,” is more interested in marijuana than in leftist violence? That’s who to give your demands to. Good luck with that. Her converted majesty Ivanka says we all don’t belong in American society. That’s the Trumps.
And if Trump was really the alpha male “shiv-master” of rightist fantasy, he would now be on the rhetorical attack, instead of cowering in the White House like a bullied little fat kid, uttering platitudes to satisfy the bullies, and mulling sacrificing Bannon to appease the bullies.
“Baked Alaska” – he should sue the city of Charlottesville, and the state of Virginia, and the responsible “leadership.” Maybe he should sue Trump and Sessions as well – we are ultimately responsible for failing to crack down on leftist violence since January. Even when Trump’s own (elderly) supporters are attacked at mainstream Trump rallies he says or does nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Odds and ends.
I’m not sure the conference “shrugged off” anything given that an attendee was assaulted and then, on top of it, got into legal trouble, but what they hey, right?
And Spencer is a big boy and all, and can do as he pleases, but I note he has completely ignored the advice of this blog to eschew the Alt Wrong, and instead speaks at a conference organized by those who threw him under the bus for Jewish interests, with fellow speakers including someone who engaged in bemused schadenfreude with a Jewish correspondent over the possibility of Spencer getting shot. I’m not very confident about the judgment of Alt Right leadership, but these guys are young; maybe they’ll mature with age.
This analysis was disappointing. Panhandling Brimelow and scum like Derbyshire are enjoyable? Derbyshire talks science?
One could of course take a “glass half full” approach and say that having more radical folk like Spencer and Friberg speak was maturation on the part of the Alt Wrong itself; but any conference that features the likes of Derbyshire as a speaker is inherently flawed at its deepest foundations.
One could also argue that both sides overcame personal issues to let Spencer (and Friberg) have a forum to promote the Alt Right (whether that’s a good thing is another question), and so all involved should be commended for putting “the good of the movement” above all else. Perhaps. But there are, as implied above, deeper issues at stake other than the merely personal. Loyalty and dependability, essential in a crisis – can people who so blithely “threw you under the bus” for something so inconsequential has “Hailgate” be trusted in the event of more serious occurrences? And how can the deep ideological divide be plastered over? What should hardcore WN supporters of the Alt right think about this dalliance with the Alt Wrong? Conversely, what will Jewish supporters of the Alt Wrong think about Spencer-Friberg speaking at Amren? In the end, do the Alt Right and Alt Wrong brands actually represent anything meaningful? Anything consistent? Anything that can be depended upon beyond the needs of the moment?
No surprise that Der Movement, including the ‘anti-immigration” alt Wrong sites, hasn’t had anything to say about this.
Question: will the good and great “alpha male” Trump, with his “unlimited pardoning power” do the right thing and pardon Arpaio? Or are we just getting to get more tweets attacking Sessions instead?
But, but, but…I thought we were all the same, race is only skin deep:
Current meta-analytical research suggests that different population groups have distinctive muscular adaptations…
An ethnonationalist response to EGI paradigm: “all our enemies are White, so we don’t care about racial solidarity.”
Putting aside the “who cares that we’ve all been ruined by two world wars, let’s indulge in more of the narrow, ethnonationalist retarded nonsense that caused our problems to begin with,” EGI can apply to the ethnic group as well as to the race, so what’s the point to the response? I mean, other than the obvious point that ethnonationalism, in the narrow sense exemplified by the above quote, is a curse on our race and must be unalterably opposed and, eventually, crushed into the dust.
I essentially agree with Spencer’s analysis. Did Jr do anything illegal? I don’t see it. Treason? Absurd (*). On the other hand, let’s not let him off the hook that easily.
The bottom line is that Trump Jr is as stupid and politically clumsy as his father. Do you go personally to this meeting? Ever hear of plausible deniability? How about using cut-outs? Or…whatever – if you are the son of a Presidential candidate who is vehemently opposed by the media and the entire Establishment, you had better at least superficially keep up appearances. Let others, several layers removed, do the “dirty work.” It doesn’t matter that he did nothing wrong; in politics, appearance means as much (or more) than reality. Come on, Donnie Jr was on Celebrity Apprentice with dear old dad, doesn’t he know the power of appearance?
One thing Spencer could have mentioned – of all of Trump’s children, Don Jr seems the most right-wing and the most in tune with an at least Alt Lite right-wing populism, another reason to be targeted by the Deep State.
A side note: I’m certainly no phenotypist, but on the other hand, unlike what some of my detractors believe, I certainly do acknowledge the importance of racial phenotype (it just has to take a back seat to the genotype). This “Russian lawyer” – is she actually an ethnic Russian? She looks like she could be ¼ or even ½ Chinese. Raciology alert! Maybe – hopefully – she is a non-Russian “Russian citizen.”
When all is said and done, Trump is an embarrassment. Relevance to EGI? Thanks to the Alt Right, Trump’s civic nationalist phony right-wing populism has been connected in the public mind with Der Movement, so, like it or not, the outcome of the Trump Presidency will, in some manner, influence the direction of American activism. Hopefully, we can all survive the damage being done by this lumbering buffoon.
In all honesty, the “crazy and bitter” Ted Sallis could do a better job as President. Sallis in 2020! Who should be my VP choice – Durocher or Silver?
*In the early 19th century, the US government was unable to convict Aaron Burr of treason, despite Burr’s plans (and activities) in attempting to establish an empire out of the USA’s western territories and Mexico (both to be seized by force). Now, in the early 21st century, we are told that Don Jr’s meeting with Suzie Chopsticks to get “dirt” on Hillary Clinton (certainly low-hanging fruit if there ever was) is “treason.” Yeah…who was levying war against the United States? Who are the two witnesses to Don Jr levying war or assisting in such levying? As Spencer points out, the USA and Russia are not at war.
