Conspiracy Theory: The Russia-Alt-Right Axis

The alt-right has a crush on Russia. We admire their political unity, their social normalcy, their stoic stand against Modernist degeneracy. Donald Trump has also expressed attitudes that are less than rabidly russophobic. The alt-right wagers that his administration would pursue detente with Moscow. A welcome change from the reflexive antagonism of Hillary Clinton and her neocon supporters.

But having a positive attitude toward Russia, and especially President Vladimir Putin, is a political liability in the West. Clinton knows this, which is why she tried to tie Trump and the alt-right to Putin in her August 25th speech.

The accusation is part of a larger pattern. Clinton and her backers in the media and political establishment have made a habit of trying to tar Trump and the alt-right as Russian stooges. The Clinton Campaign has (without presenting evidence) blamed Russia for hacking the DNC’s email servers, and insinuated that Trump was responsible, somehow. Trump was also accused of treason for suggesting that Russia could provide Hillary’s 30,000 lost emails to the public. Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was sidelined by the allegation that he had corrupt dealings when he was a businessman in Ukraine before the “Euromaidan” revolution. (See our latest podcast, detailing the Ukrainian situation).

As usual, this is mostly just posturing from Clinton and her allies in the Neocon establishment. To the Neocons, this is evidence of right-wing treachery. In their minds, Western and Russian interests are always opposed, and therefore anyone who would cooperate with Russia must be a traitor.  But the Neocons are flaunting their habitual black-and-white sophistry. They have no real arguments, so they screech “guilt by association.” Clinton pulled out this logical fallacy in her August 25 speech, quoting a Mexican proverb: “Tell me with whom you walk, and I will tell you who you are.”

The rhetoric is nevertheless damaging to Trump, and the alt-right needs to be careful. The liberals and neocons are running out of rhetorical ammunition. Incessant accusations of racism seem to be losing their potency. So they have turned to Russia bashing. What better way to cast your opponent as weak than by posturing as the anti-Russia hard-liner? The tactic is a classic in American politics.

But it is not just rhetoric. There is something to liberal and neocon allegations. For the moment, the alt-right’s interests align with those of Russia. The alt-right would prefer for the US to adopt a less confrontational foreign policy. We see no reason to risk WWIII over the Donbas or Crimea. The alt-right also agrees with the vast majority of Russians in favoring tradition and the socially conservative policies that support it.

What’s more, Russia has every reason to support the alt-right, including the nationalists of Western Europe. (Indeed, France’s Front National has taken loans from Russian banks. Other far-right parties are often accused of accepting Russian money. The accusations have the ring of truth, as the European far-right is generally well disposed to Russia.) The more the alt-right’s influence grows, the better for Russia’s foreign interests. The rising right is also a boon to Russia domestically. Unlike the neocons, Trump and the alt-right have no reason to antagonize Russia over its social policies.

But if Russia supports the alt-right, why does RT, Moscow’s main media outlet in the West, not take a hard-right editorial line? RT’s programing often promotes leftist and libertarian views. It is broadly critical of corporatism and neoconservatism. It is certainly not alt-right. Similar attitudes prevail at Sputnik, another Russian media outlet aimed at an international audience.

Russia’s strategy is double-edged. Like any great power, it seeks to mold the political climate of its rivals. While Russia would prefer nationalists to hold power in the West, it is prepared for other outcomes. A right-wing West would be more amenable to Moscow. As it is, the ever leftward trend in Western society suits Russia just fine. A strong partner would be great, but Moscow will settle for a weak competitor.

As the Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov explained: the key to political propaganda is not resisting your rivals’ ideological punches, but side-stepping them. Even better, one should pull the punch through, to let your opponent’s momentum put him in a compromising position. This is why Russian news does not take an anti-liberal line. In an ideological fight, it is best to encourage your rival to indulge his own worst inclinations. If the West continues to follow liberalism and equalism to their reductiones ad absurdum, it is doomed.

The alt-right is on the correct path. Just because some of our interests happen to align with Russia’s, does not mean we must abandon them. Reflexive russophobia, like that of the neocons, reflects our interests just as poorly as a slavishly pro-Russia attitude would. We can agree with Russia without being traitors. The alt-right–and Trump–speak for the vast majority of Americans when they advocate traditional values at home a more restrained policy abroad.

Some commentators suspect Russia will pull out all the stops to get Trump elected. There is even speculation that Russia will unleash an “October surprise.” I doubt it. Even if Moscow has damaging information on Clinton, why blow it before the election? Better to hold on to it to use as leverage if she wins. Moscow would prefer a President Trump, but they are prepared to deal with a Hillary victory.

So while Trump and the alt-right offer a fresh and reasonable position on Russia, we must remember a few things. Russia is a powerful, robust culture that sees itself in exceptional terms. As much as we admire and respect the Russians–they are our racial kin after all–they are rivals of Euro-American civilization. We wish them the best, but not at our expense.

Otto Weininger: The Jew Who Saved Me

TRIGGER WARNING: The following article contains nuclear-grade Real Talk. If you haven’t taken your iron-pill today, you might want to read something else. Even for hard-core Stormfront proles, the conclusion may be tough to swallow.

The Jewish Question and the Woman Question are rather tedious. Both issues are intrinsically ‘low.’ People of common intellect find them interesting only because of their tendentiousness. Serious intellectuals, on the other hand, tend to shy away from such subjects, lest they be distracted from matters of greater philosophical depth. While acknowledging the bad, one should, like Xenophon’s Socrates, focus on the good. However, these two questions–on Jews and women–cannot be avoided. They are of critical import in dealing with history, political philosophy and sociology. For a man to have any understanding of his world, he is forced to grapple with these two most mundane of issues.

As expected, given the generally lower intellects attracted to them, most of what is said about Jews and women is utter garbage. Just check your local university. So it is rare to find an author who addresses either question with the appropriate gravity. Such an author is Otto Weininger (1880-1903), who tackles both issues in his magnum opus Sex and Character. Weininger was an Austrian Jew who committed suicide at 23, but who, despite his short life, attained an unusually mature level of philosophical development. The philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein went so far as to call him a genius (albeit with certain reservations). Sex and Character is nowadays universally panned as misogynist, anti-Semitic and all-around evil. So you know it has to be good.

Race-Tour Recap

Race-Tour 2016 is winding down. I have a lot of material to process, which will likely serve as fodder for future articles and podcasts. My laptop has a Stasi-level archive, including pages of pseudo-intellectual musings, and hours of grainy recordings of me trolling Arabs and Lesbians. So goyim, buckle up.

But the fun isn’t over yet. I have a few more objectives to hit: Munich (spiritual reasons), Berlin again, a certain hamlet in Denmark, Stockholm and Iceland. Before I launch on this final, exclusively Germanic leg of Race-Rour 2016 (RT16), I decided to do a little AAR. How did my original assumptions compare to the reality on the ground? What is to be done about our race’s predicament?

At the very onset, Vince and I concluded that the Nords were not the key to White salvation (Link to Vince’s two-part series). All the memes were basically right. While Nords are most exposed to the problem, they are sadly the most inured to it. That brought about the question of southern, “frontier” whites. Could they be the source of a racial awakening?

The Plan

I conceived RT16 back in February. At the time, the Hadji hoards were swelling up for another summer storm, with monthly numbers of immivaders, despite the cold, exceeding even the stats for last summer. There was a good chance of tens or hundreds of thousands by summer. “Born too late to explore the earth, born too early to explore the galaxy”… born just in time for the Great European Race War. I was positively giddy.

There was no way anyone was going to get a handle on the situation. The European governments drank their own Kool-Aid. They were petrified by their own myopic, neo-Puritan ideology. Supranational powers like the EU and NATO (“The Empire”) would let the immivasion continue, whether by incompetence or malice. Shit was going down. So great an influx of zombie-Hadjis would certainly lead to a total collapse of the social order. Two outcomes seemed possible: Hungarian obstinacy would trigger a chain-reaction in the Balkans, with one government after another refusing to accept migrants, or a major political crisis would erupt in some core-European country.

I based my travel plan on this analysis. I would fly to Sweden, epicenter of POZ, then head south to Germany and Austria, where I figured most of the action would be. If, like 2015, the Balkans were crawling with sub-human streams, I would venture out into the old Hapsburg-Ottoman borderlands. I even went so far as to retool my Russian as Serbo-Croatian.

It did not quite work out that way. In March, the EU struck a deal with the Turks that cut the inflow to a trickle, thereby making all-out race-war unlikely this year. To use the now classic metaphor–the frog is being boiled slowly again. So instead, we have stalemate. If last year was 1914, this year is 1915. Positions have shifted, the losses have mounted–Cologne, Paris, Brussels, now Nice–but no decisive action has occurred. And worse, none seems possible.

I changed plans accordingly. After hitting Sweden with Vince, I figured the best place to see some action would be Italy and Greece, entrepôts of the Muzziepocalypse. It was not quite what I had hoped for, but Southern Europe provided a welcome contrast with the North. The race-problem was still stark, but in a different way. The aliens were there, and in big groups, but they (were) kept to themselves. I was relieved to see no cases of miscegenation.

The Southern Problem

But the locals let me down. I figured that Southerners would have a more realistic view of the Problem. They did. Indeed, southern dislike of the barbarian is instinctful. While many exhibit a veneer of liberal attitudes, few are impractical enough to really believe in them. Unfortunately, that visceral dislike rarely manifested itself in any sort of resolve. They know something is off, but they generally do not care enough to do anything about it. It probably will not affect them anyway. All they have to do is ship the next batch of dindus North and its la dolce vita again.

Two particular instances are illustrative. I had conversations with two middle-aged men on my last day in Thessalonica. Their opinions were far more realistic than the average Nord’s, but their realism often crossed into outright cynicism. They had taken “the Black Pill,” as we are calling it now.

I struck up a conversation with the first of them while sitting at a sidewalk cafe. He held an odd mix of totally based and utterly liberal opinions. He argued that the Greek economic crisis is fake, it is nothing more than a bankers’ scam. Fair enough. On the other hand, he called the Syrian civil war “real.” He argued that it was caused intentionally by the European powers, and therefore, “We have to let them in.” But he conceded that Muslims cause problems, citing 9-11 as evidence that even a few could be very dangerous.

He also argued that Greece needed a totally crazy leader to clean up its economic problems. He cited Hitler as an example. When I pressed him about the refugee crisis, he recast his proposal. “The whole world needs a leader like that.”

He was vaguely Jew-aware. Not knowing my nationality, he stated that he liked the US, because there is a strong Greek lobby. I pointed out that, while true, the Greek-Americans have nothing on our main ethnic lobby. He nodded, and bragged that his people had gotten on with (((them))) well for centuries. I smirked. Supposedly the Arabs used to say that it takes two Jews to cheat a Greek.

He wondered about life in Washington, DC. I told him that the people in power are soulless, “They look like this,” doing my best to emulate the shitlib 1000-cock stare. He recognized my meaning immediately and blurted out “cyber-metrics!” (I think he meant “cyborgs”). So, the Jews run the world through Washington cyborgs. At that point I excused myself. His world concept was ridiculously simplistic. Had this guy even read Culture of Critique?

The second man started talking to me in the nearly empty central train station (railroad strike). He spoke English very well, and claimed to have been around since the Korean War. Refusing to reveal his nationality, he mentioned Greek, Turkish and Israeli friends. He started talking to me to offer a warning: in this deserted station, a Bangladeshi was pimping a tall Serbian girl in a scheme to steal valuables from men. I was skeptical but went along. He complained that he told the security guard, but that they did nothing. He went on to bemoan our general situation, predicting that the Bangladeshis and Chinese would take over the world. “But they did not build any of this (gesturing to the marble floors and walls), our fathers paid for it,” he said, pointing at himself and me.

I agreed, citing my experiences this summer, and asked “What can we do?.”

He shot back, “No, you can’t get worked up! There’s no point in getting worked up!”

Conclusion

So to sum up, Europeans come in two basic types: frontier whites and interior whites. Interior whites (Germanics and the French) suffer all the worst delusions that the alt-right has so exhaustively critiqued. Frontier whites (eg. Italians, Greeks, Serbs) on the other hand are instinctively realistic. They make no pretense of liking the invader. Their shortcoming is not seeing the big picture. So long as their lives are not directly affected, they are content to let the Afro-Muzzies pass through. Several times I had the occasion, often standing next to a concentration of refugees, to ask a local if the migrants were a problem. Sometimes the problem was acknowledged. But too often they would shrug. “Not a problem. Everything is fine.”

Of course this distinction ignores a number of others. It is not just interior vs frontier. It is city vs countryside, female vs male, young vs old. Youth, femininity and urbanity make people more likely to back their own people’s dispossession. It’s the old yin and yang.

As I am finishing up this essay, my impeccably quiet train-car is gliding through the Austrian Alps. over a mountain town that looks exactly like the one from The Sound of Music. And, what do you know, a whole family of hadjis just entered my train car. They Syrio-Iraqis always come in big packs– an old man, two old women, two boys, two girls and two young bucks, one of whom is of course wearing a pink polo. In light of recent happenings, I am way too triggered to write anymore. I wish it would just start already.

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
