Comment of the Week: Democracy Spring…. A Conspiracy Theory

This week’s comment goes to H8chan’s /pol/… The implications about the upcoming Democracy Spring are food for thought. But the parts about that Alt-Right being controlled opposition were removed. Tin-foilery has its limits.

In light of recent events, and one new and currently breaking event in particular, I feel it is necessary to point something out that some of you may not realize, specifically about why certain events are taking place, and the motivations behind those events. Some old hands may know this already, or have sussed it out for themselves, but we have picked up quite a few new people recently, so it is, I think, worthwhile to line all of the ducks up in a row and explain precisely what is going on.

I’ll start with a simple question. A kingmaker question. Let us pretend you are a leader of a nation, and that nation is going to experience a cultural and political revolution in the very near future, perhaps ten years from now, approximately. You have access to knowledge and information that makes this very clear, though the general populace does not. Let us further expand the scenario by saying that there is no way to avert or prevent this from happening, because the population has legitimate grievance with the establishment, nor can you simply come clean about what is happening, because you are complicit in the corruption that has brought the nation to the brink of revolution.

You also do not want the revolution to take place, because, having been complicit, you would likely end up lynched for what you have done. So you cannot simply stand by and allow nature to take its course, either.

So what do you do?

Enter a very simple, and very dangerous, idea: Controlled Opposition.

If you are the establishment, and revolution is inevitable, and you cannot allow the revolution to take place, the single best way to ensure the maintaining of the status quo in your favor is to preempt the revolution with a revolution of your own. A revolution that “you” control. A revolution that is created and engineered from the ground up to fail, so as to ‘absorb’ the desire for a revolution from the people, and then quench it by being vanquished by the establishment reasserting itself. A revolution that serves no other purpose beyond being defeated and vindicating the policies of the establishment. A literal and metaphorical punching bag.

If you can’t stop the revolution, you lead it. You lead it and produce it, spin it and control it, and then make a show out of vanquishing it. The ultimate, highest, greatest, and final expression of the bread and circus.

So what does this have to do with anything?

I’m glad you asked.

I’ll answer your question with another question.

What was Gamergate?

Gamergate was a grassroots reaction to the airing of some particularly dirty and embarrassing laundry within the field of gaming journalism. It started on 4chan’s /v/ board, when it was revealed that Zoe Quinn, an amateur game developer and blogger whose real name is Chelsea Van Valkenburg, was exchanging sexual favors behind her now ex-boyfriend’s back in exchange for good reviews. /v/ grabbed onto the story and began spreading it, but the story was, to the amazement of those talking about it, quickly and ruthlessly shut down across numerous unrelated media platforms, most famously on places like Reddit and the comments sections of news media sites, but also disturbingly on 4chan itself, which typically prided itself on at least pretending to be about free speech and freedom of expression. A blackout silence campaign that could even affect 4chan? What was going on?

This scandal, which became known as the Five Guys Burgers and Fries scandal, after the five men Valkenburg had sexual relations with, was rapidly overshadowed by the Quinnspiracy, which was the conspiracy surrounding the attempted hushup of the scandal. To try and hide the corruption, greater and deeper corruption broke ranks and revealed itself.

At this point, I’m merely repeating what most of you already know. But this next part is where it gets interesting. The Streisand Effect went into full swing, and people who would perhaps have not cared nearly as much about this otherwise began demanding answers. Who was this woman, who could get articles pulled or manipulated from the likes of Rock Paper Shotgun, Kotaku, and Giantbomb, who had influence over Reddit, the HR teams of major gaming publishers, and even 4chan moderators?

/v/ came to /pol/ for help. And together, they dug. What they found was a conspiracy that was, impossibly, even larger than it first seemed to have appeared. This was no mere issue of radical feminists and progressives protecting their own. This ran all the way to the top. These people had connections to Common Core and DiGRA, they had received funding from DARPA think tanks and held memberships to the sorts of shady international round tables that receive funding from billionaires. They had connections to social reengineering projects, academia, the government, and massive proposed reformation programs for education departments.

What was going on? How does any of this make sense? Why would DARPA and defense contractors fund social justice warriors, of all things?

I will, yet again, answer your question with another question. Why would George Soros give millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter? Why would a radically progressive ninety year old Jewish banker give money to an unorganized mob of idiots who think anything other than total agreement and submission to their opinions is bigotry of the highest order, to be met with violence and bloodshed? What does Soros gain out of that?

Islam is Not the Problem

Islam is schizophrenic. It seems to preach both peace and violence. Alex Charles over at Alternative Right has a pretty good article explaining Islam’s two-facedness. His main point is that the seemingly peaceful aspects of Islam derive from Muhammad’s preaching at Mecca, and the violent aspects are from his time in Medina, when he acted as a political leader.

The thesis is generally true, but the argumentation is terrible. The fault lies with Mr. Charles’ main source–Bill French alias Warner, a real Zio-shill if there ever was one. While I am a fan of Mr. Charles’ other work, following Warner undermines this article’s whole argument.

Islam is not the problem. Diversity is.

Warner, the pseudo-intellectual Zio-shill

Let’s start with the source. Warner is a physicist who runs the Islamo-critical site Political Islam. He has no grounding in the humanities and it shows. His method of examining Islam is to statistically analyze what he considers the religion’s three sacred texts (“the trilogy”). He claims these are the Quran, the Hadith and “the sira,” which he calls the biography of Muhammad. Continue reading Islam is Not the Problem

Muslims, Russians, and those Vile Europeans

The great race war isn’t coming. Oh, don’t get me wrong, its World War White out there, but that doesn’t mean that our side will start fighting back anytime soon. There are a few sparks here and there, but there is no organized resistance, no big plan, and very little reason to be optimistic.

Why is that?

Mentality and the Security Apparatus.

Muslims in the No Go suburbs of Europe are arming themselves now. They are organizing and planning their next moves. Not only do they have the offense advantage now, but they also have the long game in the bag.  They have the correct strategic mindset. This is a war of wombs, and the barren western spinster is our greatest liability. Leaving aside her voting patterns, her histrionics, and her shaming techniques, she is on a tribal level, a dead asset.

But it is not just the sorry state of women that makes our future look so bleak. It is the fundamental R and K selection processes that are at work in the European psyche vs. the Muslim psyche. The logical processes that go into the decision to have a child are different between Muslims and European peoples. We have a child when we can afford it. We only have one or two. We pour all our resources into raising a few good children that we can then give the upbringing they need to have a petty bourgeois standard of life.

Muslims however see the issue differently. See for us, life is about doing things. Our hobbies define us. When asked who we are, we reply that we are lawyers, doctors or businessmen.

But a Muslim is always a Muslim first and foremost. For them, having children is not about producing doctors, it’s about producing the next generation of Muslims. Career aspirations, skiing vacations and PhD’s take a backseat to having more Muslim children.

If not now, then when? If not here, then where?

The time for revolution is not here yet. The reason is simple, the State is still too powerful. And as things stand at the moment, the State is hostile to the interests of Patriots.

Patriotic movements in turn have not yet learned to operate despite State interference, or offer alternative networks of authority and support that run parallel to the State’s.

The militaries, police forces and enforcement apparatus’ of the European states remain more than capable of dealing with the Muslim threat. If there was a political will, the tools of law enforcement remain more than capable of neutralizing the threat.

The problem is that there is no political will. The Elites are all globalists now, and bleeding heart sycophants. And the Security Services are rightly concerned about a loss of control over the country. While they cannot control the problem from the migrants’ end, they can quite easily lay down the lay on law-abiding Europeans who start to display signs of discontent.

It is easy and cathartic to call the police and the state apparatus traitors of their own people. But let us be clear-eyed and call them for what they are. Tools of Enforcement. They do as they are told by hierarchical chains of command.

This is at least, how the opposition views the situation. The Nationalist Right, where it even exists, is still trying to operate within the realm of the political system. Take FN in France for example, they are trying to legally seize the tools of the state by winning the elections. If the government falls into the hands of the FN, then the police is one phone call away from fumigating the camps in Calais.

Many still believe that a peaceful transition of power is still possible, but increasingly, this seems to not be the case. The Front National may never assume office at the rate things are going. And we must assume that this will be the case going forward.

If we do assume that there is very little to no chance of the Patriotic parties coming to power in Europe, then we must realize that the tools of the state are always going to be used against Patriots. The Police isn’t switching sides anytime soon.

And so we come to a radical conclusion.

We will be enemies of the state for the foreseeable future.

It is time to start organizing with this assumption in mind. The mass-surveillance, the security services, and the media are against us. And that there is very little chance of turning them. What stops us from arming ourselves and Removing Kebab right here and right now? It’s not the Kebab itself that has us scared. Most of us are scared of what we know our own government will do to us if we step out of line.

A Patriot network will have to start operating with these assumptions in mind. The soft apparatchik class is a class apart from the citizen subversives. We should all know by now about the destructive role that international you-know-who-ery has played on the health of our societies. (And if you refuse to acknowledge it, maybe Libertarianism is more your speed) But they are not the main obstacle that any Patriot movement will have to face. First and foremost, we will have to overturn the establishment-class managers of the system. They keep it alive, they salvage what they can. Radicals of all stripes threaten them and their livelihood, and so they will fight tooth and nail for a return to normality…whatever the cost.

No appeal to ethno-nationalism will work on them, in fact from their vantage point a deal with the Muslims is far more likely. Think about it like Houellebeck might; the Muslims will need political representation, and so the establishment might start cutting deals. Why wouldn’t they? They are trying to keep the damn thing chugging along until they can retire with grace. The establishment will almost certainly start offering deals and concessions. They will try to buy off the barbarians and when that fails, they may even offer them relative autonomy. Say like… the right to their own universities (funded by gulf arabs), right to practice Sharia law in their own neighborhoods, they may even have to change their foreign policy for fear of reprisals…

Russia

Will Russia save Europe?

A cursory look at history shows that Russia has a habit of sweeping up Europe occasionally and setting things back into order.

Will the same happen any time soon? Will Russia save Europe from itself?

Yes and no.

We must remember to keep in perspective the Russian strategic goals for Europe. Following the break up of the Soviet Union, and well into Putin’s presidency, there was a burning desire among the elites and intelligentsia to finally join Europe as an equal partner and participate in the European project of prosperity. No more economic backwardness, no more threats nuclear war, no more labor camps. Reset buttons were pushed, Putin’s baby-blue eyes were complimented, and overall looking back we can conclude that those were heady times.

But once again, Russia learned the hard way that Europe had no intention of letting the wild snarling savage on its eastern border join the European community. And to reinforce that point, NATO started to tighten the noose around Russia, encroaching right up to the heartland from the Baltics, and now from Ukraine.

Even now, the noose continues to tighten with economic sanctions imposed by Europe on Russia. From the perspective of the Russians, there is little to be grateful for, vis a vis Europe. In fact, Europe seems to go out of its way to impede its own progress as long as it undermines Russia. As an example, Europe is paying through the nose to start importing American LNG gas to avoid having to rely on cheap Russian alternatives. Even the refugee crisis is being blamed on Russia’s intervention in Syria- although the refugees are a blessing and a gift, goy!

Russia has in response, decided to pivot to Asia. It makes sense, economically, even though there isn’t a Russian in Russia who actually considers himself part of Asia or wants anything to do with pretending that Asiatics and Russians are more similar than Russians and Europeans. The heart yearns for Europe, but the head has redirected Russia to point in the direction of Asia. As a result of the migrant crisis however, difficult questions are being asked.

Does Europe have a future?

The answer is that Europe has had no independent future ever since it was carved up between the Americans and the Soviets. Even now, Europe remains a vassal state to the Americans, a few token acts of defiance from France under de Gaulle nonwithstanding.

There is reason to believe that the Americans are helping direct the refugee flows to Europe. The reason for this is quite simple: destabilization, the American weapon of choice. It has been deployed all over the middle-east, Yugoslavia, and all around the periphery of the Soviet Union.

The EU is simply another tool of American Imperialism. It keeps everyone in line while vainly pretending that the unification of Europe is supposed to make it some sort of contender against the economic might of the Americans or the Russian. Nothing could be further from the truth. The architects of the European Union created a supranational governing entity that can brush away and pressure the national governments of the Union.

Europe is losing control over its own territories, and there is little reason for Russia to shed a tear. Even now, Russian political talk shows debate the issue. Surprisingly, the liberals who are out of power are arguing that Europe must be saved from itself and that Russia must be the champion of True European Ideals…

Others like Zhirinovsky are not so enthusiastic. “We should encourage them to let millions more refugees in, let them choke on those refugees,” he bellowed at me from the TV last night.

Who knows what Russia will decide, She herself is not out of the woods yet, with war on their border and possible terror attacks looming in the near future, Russia has its hands full. For now, Europe is on its own.

Will Russia however support indirectly the Nascent Right?

Only so long as these parties are anti-American and not explicitly Nazi/Fascist. This isn’t about saving European civilization for Russia at this point, it’s about prying Europe out of the American Empire’s orbit. It’s about normalizing relations with a subcontinent that is incredibly hostile. Russia may end up saving Europe from itself yet again, but not with troops in Paris or Berlin this time. Hopefully they do it by supporting Identitarians…But we will have to see if Russia decides it wants to save Europe or not.

And that’s the decision I await with bated breath.

The Joke is On Them

If the “cuck” phenomenon has proven anything, it is that it is fun to create new catchy epithets to hurl at our ideological enemies.

But I have drawn other lessons from the Trump Thaw and it is that there is no bottom in the deep rabbit-hole of Poz. Calling the GOP out on its treachery served to organize a large group of Dissident Right thinkers who had already been disaffected by the state of Conservatism Inc, and were ready to dabble in some old fashioned nationalism to Make America Great Again.

But more surprising was the shamelessness with which many on the Left and Right embraced the “cuck” slur as a sort of badge of PC pride.

The shiv was fun- and well deserved. But was it effective? It gave us a rallying cry, sure, but it does not look like it succeeded in chastising the establishment to change its course. Nor did it garner the Alt-Right a fresh cadre of newly red-pilled CrimeThinkers.

In fact, it seems to have made many normies aware of the Alt-Right and places like /pol/, just as the similar stunt with the AI “Tay” almost certainly will.

tay

The Offended Left will never make peace with any aspect of racial theory, or be able to forsake lofty principle for the “base” preservation instinct behind putting their own national, and ethnic interests first. The cuck insult may have pricked a few crypto-libertarians and states-rights enthusiasts right where it hurt, and gotten them to tone down their PC platitudes, but that’s about it…

Its not just “cuck” though. We see this with the dulling of other slick verbal shivs like the time-honored classic, “faggot.” Calling a white a “nigger”or “a wigger” is useless as well. They wear it as a badge of pride, as if the shitlord is bestowing honorary tribal status. Like doing a Pow Wow to let Dances With Wolves join their tribe, they glow with confirmation of their race traitor status.

“If a shitlord thinks that I am a lamentable waste of human debris, then I must be doing something right!”

While I cannot account for the effect on their subconscious, it seems that bullying is ineffective in getting the left of center cucks into line.

We have reached peak cuck.

These verbal bombs slide off of them like water off a duck’s back. The divide is real, and it’s come to the point of radicalization.

Terrorist groups the world over understand the importance of radicalizing tactics and they do it to eat away at the soft middle. While we are fond of calling the other side terrorists, we must understand that the State views our movement through the same lens.

While we exist on opposite sides of the ideological divide, we eat away at the soft middle and our adherents accept no reconcilement with the world-view of the Neo-Bolsheviks. We start drifting away from republican democracy by focusing on our interests as an ethnic bloc, and because of our rejection of mainstream, middle-of-the line candidates. The milquetoast establishment is threatened by both sides of the divide none the least by BLM and the SJWs who are organized and fanatical in their drive to “dismantle the white, patriarchal system of oppression.”

Put simply, the chattering classes are of course terrified by the prospect of actually having to cave to all of their demands. Hillary’s adoption of the BLM creed seemed reluctant at best. The liberal democrats created the Gibs-me-dat Industrial Complex, and now they can’t seem to put a muzzle on it…

So they are trying to co-opt it. They try to find middle ground with them, to concede to their points and promise to do more. But it doesn’t seem to be working, if anything it seems to embolden the radicals- as it always does. In a strange way, the spoiled children of President Johnson’s vision believe themselves to be in the same position as the Alt-Right. Working against perceived injustices that “the system” has inflicted upon them. The irony of course being that “the system” is the only thing keeping Middle American Revolutionaries from creating a new system of Jim Crow that would make Buchenwald seem like an excursion to the Epcot Center.

The Radical Left has mobilized, and now the cat is out of the bag. With one side radicalized and ready, the pressure will be put on the establishment, (and they almost certainly will cave.) Disgust will mount, and a savior will emerge. They may find our views on the Jews icky, but Trayboon hollering on the megaphone, “Vote for Trump, You get Jumped” doesn’t really leave them many options. Its really funny when you think about it, but the joke is on them. Now soft, Middle America is getting a front row seat to the action. Now they can see what has been spawned in the pits of Isengard while they’ve been busy stuffing their faces and watching football.

We interrupt your scheduled soma for this jaw-dropping display of hubris
We interrupt your scheduled soma for this jaw-dropping display of hubris

It’s time to proselytize, and radicalize because the middle is eroding. This election cycle has been the nastiest and most divisive in generations. And that’s a good thing, it means that the state of affairs is ripe for change. The consensus has been shattered, and soon hard questions will be asked.

Put the issue to a choice- Nationalism or Laissez-Come. Renewal or Suicide. Righteous Hatred or Mewling Acquiescence.

Forget about the Left. They are unsalvageable. Forget about the chattering classes- they will come begging to cut a deal with whoever comes out on top anyway. We must focus only on radicalizing soft, Middle America.

Tribunes of the People

Tribunes of the People

The Roman Republic suffered from many of the same ailments in the 130s BC as the United States does today. Rome fell victim to imperial bloat, economic stagnation and cultural enrichment. Then two brothers–Tiberius and Gaius Gracchus–arose to restore her glory. Is The Trumpening a rerun of the same events? Lecture by Gregory Ritter.

The main source for this lecture is Erik Hildinger’s Swords against the Senate, The Rise of the Roman Army and the Fall of the Republic (2002).

For a more direct account, there’s always Plutarch on Tiberius and Gaius.

The British historian mentioned in the podcast is Adrian Goldsworthy, who has written a number of books about Ancient Rome and her wars.

College, Thoreau, Rats in a Cage! Oh my!

What do the elite universities of the Post First really teach you? The “soft” sciences I mean. Certainly not critical thinking, or a good understanding of history. No, they teach you to toe the party line, and you pick up a few administrative tasks along the way as well. “Proficient at Microsoft Word”- for the Resume. That’s about all you pick up in terms of technical skills. The rest is just compliance testing. Do this job in this set amount of time and give the correct answer that you guess your bos-professor is looking for.

You’re basically picking up middle-rank apparatchik administrative skills and habits. In the mean time, you notice your peers start emulating the culture of the place. Shitlib snark habits start seeping into their demeanor. They start dressing like WASPs but talking like a fa66ots, (is there an overlap and a correlation? I know correlation does not imply causation, but at a certain point one has to ask…) and they start thinking the Exact. Same. Things. All while maintaining how unique they are!

I’m not saying that dying your hair blue or getting piercings is a decent way of expressing yourself, but c’mon- the East Coast outfit is so absurd, its just another exercise in social signaling. Being barefoot in boat shoes in the winter with tight kinder-shorts tucking your balls comfortably up to your stomach and an indistinguishable button down shirt. A tuft of hair kind of brushed back, kind of just sticking up on its own.

Everyone’s unique! Especially when they all look the same, all consume the same media, all consider themselves moderate (even though moderate seems to slide to the left every 4 years). Everyone is a WONK! that doesn’t know anything more than what Jon Stew- (sorry- Liebowitz) tells them on the Daily Shoah.

Everyone gets A- to B+ (or so they say). Everyone is really interested in beating SWPL University!! Because its us vs. them. Sportsball. Name one living Medal of Honor recipient, brah. “uhhhh-” Now name the entire starting line-up of X team from X city. Put your feet up and watch ’em recount the entire life story of the their favorite players. “Tragic really, how he sprained his ACL in the fall of his Junior year…”

True red-blooded patriots these boys are. Just ask them!

 “Name one battle from the Iraq war.”

 “Name any battle from the last 50 years that the United States has been in?”

 Bonus:

_____ Patton. Fill in the blank.

 

_____ Manning. Fill in the blank.

 

Guess which they guess right.

And most importantly, there is no opt out clause. I mean there is. But that means social ostracizement, loss of invites to parties, no mixing and mingling. In short, College is a good primer for the milquetoast effette world of yuppie employment. It’s a primer for the kind of culture you are going to be swimming in day in and day out. Abide or die replaced by conform or you simply don’t get the invite to the next party.  And the carousel keeps on turning.

I wish I could say that the strongest survive, but that would not be true. The most adaptable flourish, the rest retreat in a confused haze. “Were these really supposed to be the best days of my life?”

 “What did I do with my time?”
You were busy. That’s about it. You ran around, making friends, rubbing shoulder, doing your busy work, writing those papers for those classes that seemed so important at the time, but which you can’t even remember now.

That acronym for that class with that professor with that cutie in the front row which was so emblazoned in your mind- so on the tip of your tongue- fades.
Q: “Remember PolitGov 212?”

A:  “..Not really, which one was that?”

Q:  “The professor was really interesting, c’mon you must remember!”

 About as much as you remember that one guy from the study group with the tight electric yellow shorts, the boat shoes, and the short hair that kind of stuck up, but mostly just stood there…

 They passed the compliance test. They succeeded in fitting the mold, and as a result they were completely forgettable.

 

It was Thoreau or Emerson who said something in the 18th or 19th century about people becoming like cogs in a machine. Industrialization was making us all expendable cogs to be used and replaced along the assembly line, at least that’s the classic interpretation that I vaguely remember from my high school days.

But maybe he meant something else. Maybe he was referring to the pliant character necessary to survive in such a radically democratic society as the US was at the time. The little communities of concerned citizens enforced conformity as they built their little shining cities in the hills and valleys of America. Tocqueville would comment about the same phenomenon during his travels through the United States. He would remark that he had never seen such a lack of diversity in opinion. That Americans were largely uniform in their beliefs and used social shaming tools to effectively police opinion in their own communities.

Tocqueville would chalk it up to democracy and the fact that if people could vote, their opinion mattered politically. Therefore it was more important to police it than in say an Authoritarian society. Very counter-intuitive, but it seemed to Tocqueville that if you wanted to find a diversity of opinion and individuals you would be better off looking for them in hierarchical absolute monarchy states than in the land of “rugged individualism” as we imagine the old United States having been.

I have found this to be very true. You want to spout off some bizarre political points of view, or just opinions in general- you’re better off doing it in less democratic countries, like Russia for example. Critique Putin all you want with your friends, no one cares about your opinion politically. The State isn’t going anywhere. As it gets more wobbly, then yes, start watching what you say you liberast 5th columnist scum. But until then, run your mouth off all you want, there is no social cost attached to that sort of GoodGoyThink. It really is just your opinion, as valid as your preference for the color blue over the color orange.

But back in the USSA, its all about toeing the line. And if you don’t, that’s fine. Just don’t expect to feel welcome in the cushy managerial apparatchik class that you are expected to inhabit. Make the necessary signs of the faith. Sneer at the rednecks, hang up a poster of Muhammad Ali in your dorm room, go to the pre-games and get your dick wet with Basic Bitch halfway through the night.
“Work hard, play hard baby!”

 It’s time to hit the books again the next day, in the library, with your recyclable eco-friendly coffee cup and the flicker of the MacBook- ambiguous bumper sticker on the lid- you scroll through the Buzzfeed headlines. “Are you really Jon Snow? Take the test to find out.”

What? Sometimes its hard to be a college student. Gotta pace yourself. Can’t wear out. Can’t burn out. You’re interchangeable. Another apparatchik sitting 2 tables away from you has the exact same haircut… (But yours is a little better)

You’re more than just another cog in the machine.

Comment of the Week Winner: Takimag

“Scouring the comments sections of the Dissidenti Network so you don’t have to. “

This one goes to Takimag and commenter Alec Leamas:

“There is definitely the feeling of a “preference falsification” under which whites have for decades been required to accept aggression’s and humiliations cheerfully as the price of entry and acceptance in polite and respectable society while only softly whispering their true thoughts and feelings to trusted compatriots of known like mind. Lately and particularly during the Obama years the Left has felt emboldened to destroy careers and lives for minor infractions of a code of speech and conduct the outer limits of which are nebulous, unspoken, and capriciously enforced.

So along comes Trump, who when branded as a racist for the crime of promising a good faith effort to enforce existing, duly enacted law he refuses to retreat. And so in some way he may have been the catalyst for a “preference cascade” where people feel free to cease falsifying their preferences and instead reveal their true thoughts on a matter of importance. One of the more satisfying aspects has been the news and entertainment media’s disbelief that their power to police speech and thoughts by applying the “racist” label and marshaling their flying monkey brigade has been seen to be impotent.”

Indeed.  The jeer of “racist!” is starting to lose its edge. At least on the interwebs. Whether this represents a swing to the right in American values or just years of thick skin developed by the proliferation of cyber bullying remains unclear. We, however, welcome these changes with open arms. Knowing the left however, its only a matter of time before the Great Shutdown of 2016 claims its next victim. It feels like Russian Roulette on the Dissident Right. Will the winter crackdown lead to a spring thaw? Only time will tell.

America is a Land of Lost Legal Immigrants

Regular Ameriburgers have a right to feel that they are under threat from hordes of illegal immigrants, and by extension should end all immigration to the United States. There is literally nothing wrong with this nativist sentiment.

But I wonder if they know how much LEGAL immigrants hate the illegals as well. I spent 18 years waiting to get citizenship. My family could not visit me because they could not get Visa, and I could not leave the country during this period of time either. It became a protracted period of uncertainty and growing disgust at how the system was structured to incentive certain kinds of immigrants over others.

For example, legal immigrants support Trump. And Trump is right to stress that. He is right to point out the divide among the new arrivals, because it is real and the disgust for illegals is not faked.

Well played Don, well played.
Well played Don, well played.

ClickClick from East Africa shows up just fine, Jose runs over the border and he’s an “undocumented migrant…” Anything to avoid saying “illegal.” These people are encouraged to immigrate, but smart White families from the FSU are not. Muhammed can get a Greencard in 2 years, invite his whole extended family over for humanitarian reasons, but I never even met my cousins…

And I am not the only migrant that feels this way.

 

“America is not a land of immigrants,” I’ve heard the Dissident Right say, and they have a point. It is a settled country with an established culture, native population and its own unique rhythm of life. 

But, in moments of less than sober reflection on the state of the US, I have often made the claim that the United States is in fact just a trading outpost masquerading as a nation… And to be quite honest, I stand by it. 

The reason for this is simple, apart from some sub-cultural regions in the United States, like Dixie or maybe Texas, there isn’t really a national culture as exists in Europe. And it is felt by many Americans when they travel to Europe- they feel that something is different there, regular people feel themselves to be a part of their nation in a deeper way than Americans

Sure, you have your “USA! USA!” chanting and massive flag-waving spectacles. But these people are not necessarily feeling any particular attachment to the United States as a nation. They are simply expressing red-blooded self-pride that they then extend to their nation. But these people, these “rednecks” I suppose, don’t even know anything about the country that they claim to love.

Liberals are right to point out how “ignoraaaant” these folks are… The origins of the United States, its history, its involvement and place in the world are about as known to a “redneck” as how to escape the friend-zone is to a whiny Current Year liberal. The same can be said about all Americans’ knowledge of the outside world. To put it simply, there is simply “America” and “Not America” to most Americans. If you contrast this with Russians, or Europeans in general, they know quite a bit about the USA, they know quite a bit about their neighboring countries in Europe, and chances are they’ve even visited other parts of the world multiple times in their lives.

Americans, by contrast, feel uncomfortable in a non-American environment. Even when they go somewhere for Spring Break, its to resort town walled away from raging drug wars and populated by other drunk Americans being served American drinks by American hotel companies.

The outside world not only makes the average American uncomfortable, but mostly it just simply doesn’t interest him/her. “America is #1!” they chant, without ever venturing outside the border to verify the hypothesis.

…And of those that do, a significant number of them start entertaining serious doubts about returning back to the land of the free and the home of the brave. The lack of culture is so glaringly apparent that one sometimes asks, “just what are we fighting to preserve?” You would not be the only one wondering this, if you found yourself asking such uncomfortable anti-patriotic!! statements.  But consider this: Ask the redneck about his favorite US general and watch him stutter and struggle. Ask him about his favorite Sportsball coach and listen to him just rattle off the personal life story, injury counts, player trading history etc etc. You can repeat this experiment with: “Who is your favorite American writer?” Or “Who is your favorite non-living American president and why”

You could be forgiven for throwing your hands up in disgust at the lack of culture of the regular American prole. Many people do, and again, there is literally nothing wrong with being drawn to high culture, to seek out an understanding of history and your own national character. It is in fact, the natural pursuit of any clear-thinking patriotic man. Learning one’s culture is essential to learning about oneself. The polity was considered by the Greeks to be an extension of oneself and they were absolutely right. This yearning to partake in a grand cultural experiment is felt very keenly by us here on the Alt-Right. We want to take part in history again, to feel a connection to our past, and to start building a new future, and we know that modern society actively prevents us from doing so. The POZ is so deep, that it wants us to accept the end of history, and just consume our way into complacency and soma-like tranquility…

Many Americans feel drawn to foreign cultures with an almost born-again religious conviction. We all have that one friend who is obsessed with Russia, or Germany, or is a Franco-phile, or has a 2d Waifu and wants to make the pilgrimage to Nippon… Some claim that they have German ancestry, or a Russian soul, or that French culture fascinates them…or that they believe 2d is superior to 3d.

Contrast that with this: many East Europeans want to go to America its true, but almost none of them want to BE Americans.  On the other hand, almost every single white American, when prompted with the question- “what are you?”- will start listing their European ancestry. “Well I’m a quarter Irish, a quarter Scotch, and half-Italian.” It is never, “I’m an American” full stop. Many Americans wish they were part of something that they feel in their bones is missing from their life. After all, why else do you have so many Americans fantasizing on imageboard sites about how they can return to the Fatherland and start removing kebab?

To go back to the redneck, it is important to remember that they love the United States as a concept of “home.” Something that all patriots instinctively feel, the attachment to the land and soil that they grew up on. But there is very little of any American high-culture that they are aware of. In fact, they pride themselves on their ignorance, and before we are too quick to blame them, we should perhaps point out that they are engaged in some moral signaling of their own.

The hatred of coastal city elites and their smarmy, smug ways is deep in the heartland. So when the liberals claim that they are cultured, then “Fuck culture!” is the knee-jerk response of many patriots. But this is a losing proposition because a nation’s culture belongs to its citizens, and gives their lives context, meaning and purpose.  AI is called Atavistic Intelligentsia for a reason. We’re here to take back our culture from the POZ, to remind people of who they are.

Last October’s NPI conference was titled: “Becoming Who We Are.”

And it was truly a fitting title. Many Americans are starting to stir with a deep longing for a connection to their long lost culture. In this sense, many Americans remain immigrants and not true settlers in their hearts. They feel a longing to go back home, to the days when they weren’t a culture-less blob of universalist values.

They want to partake in deep Tradition, not just watch Football on Thanksgiving.

Many 1st, 2nd, 3rd or even 4th generation European-Americans feel like strangers in their own countries. They remain European immigrants in their souls, and they yearn to partake in something that isn’t the reckless pursuit of a more and more comfortable consumer lifestyle.

They seek genuine cultural enrichment, not from the POZ, but in genuine cultural exchanges with European peoples. Being an American and feeling an attachment to your ancestral lands is absolutely normal, in fact it is an extraordinary testament to the power of the attachment to one’s “Mother/Fatherland.” There is a movement out there, no one has given it a name yet, but it is a Roots phenomenon that has largely gone unnoticed by everyone except the Alt-Right. More and more Americans want to go back to the Old World and reclaim their heritage and it is not a coincidence that this sentiment is rising now with the 3rd world flood of biblical proportions subsuming the European continent.

To this new generation of re-conquistadors I say “Welcome back.”  You are not alone. Let’s Make Europa Great Again.
