Shots of Wisdom, Part 4

“A Real Man.” That’s what a woman of my acquaintance, whose writing I hold in respect, called Ted Cruz for breaking his vow to endorse Donald Trump. Her error lies in believing that it’s up to women to decide who is, and who isn’t a real man.

Aspiration. The Trump family presents itself as aspirational in looking like the best a man, a woman, and even a child can be — with Barron there as well. Melania walking on stage after Donald’s nomination acceptance speech was a vision. Many voters don’t like aspirational.

Barbarism. Omar’s relatives whoop with joy as the sentence is handed: two hundred hours of community service. Two months later, a knock on the door. A judge opens the door, clutching her bathrobe at the neck. A fist knocks her down. A kick breaks her rib. Petrol is poured, a lit match falls.

Dreamer. The following dialogue is loosely based on a real conversation. A young man stops me outside of a grocery store and asks:  “Excuse me, do you mind if I ask you something?
“Go for it.”
“So I have kind of a dream…” and he briefly described a career objective that is ambitious but not unrealistic “but my girlfriend tells me I need to get a regular job. Should I listen to her?”
I look at him with some curiosity. A type that’s common around here. Lower class kid, bright but a little goofy, hasn’t gotten his act in order yet. A lot fellows like him hang out as goths at the nearby dying mall. So I tell him:
“Sounds like you already have a job, which is to realize your ambition. But do you know exactly what you want?”
“Yes”
“Great. So you have a vision. Do you know how to make it happen, beginning with the first step today, then the second step tomorrow, and so on?”
He thinks before responding. This impresses me.
“Not one hundred percent,” he says.
“You need a plan that you follow every day. Otherwise you’re just a dreamer.”
“You gave me something to think about sir, thank you. And what about my girlfriend?”
“Her job is to believe in you. If she becomes demanding, get her in line.”

First Kiss. My first taste of pleasure with a girl was on the tennis courts nestled into the woods on the edge of our neighborhood. Christopher and I were middle schoolers, Jennifer was a year older than us (all names have been changed). She was in some kind of trouble, living temporarily in our community with her adult sister. Blonde feathered hair, strong perfume, tight jeans. The three of us are horseplaying and I pick her up and chase Chris to kick him in the ass with her feet. She’s laughing loudly and as I’m carrying her I notice that my left hand is cupping her breast. I look at her with raised eyebrows, she smiles with a knowing look I’ve never seen on a girl before.

We plop down against the tennis court fence and she sits on my lap. When a girl’s face is so close you notice things like the faint freckles around her nose. I lean in. She leans in too and we kiss. I had seen it hundreds of times before on television but I didn’t expect it to be this easy, with mouths fitting together and her tongue giving me spasms of longing. We break it off every once in a while to catch our breaths. I still remember her Polo shirt; it was light grey.

Christopher, meanwhile, is picking up heavy branches in the woods just behind us and smashing them against the ground. Jennifer winks at me, turns her head toward the woods and says “What’s the matter, Chris, you ok?” He casually replies “Yeah…” like he’s distracted by something important. I slide my hand up her shirt, up under the bra and she shifts herself to make it more comfortable. They are firm and beautiful, I cup and caress them until I am satisfied and then I ease my hand down her smooth skin, toward her jeans and the elastic band underneath. She blocks me. In the reel of my youth’s progress, girls I barely knew who liked what they saw still always drew the line at the southern border unless we were alone.

Freedom. So who is responsible for the wrecked state of our women? Whoever gave them freedom. Women can’t handle it. Men learn self-control because we are checked by other men through behavior-correcting violence.

Goethe: “Girls we love for what they are; young men for what they promise to be.”

Heartiste: “Love is the only thing in this world that isn’t bullshit.”

Shaw, George Bernard:
TANNER. What! a man who idolizes women! who sees nothing in nature but romantic scenery for love duets! Tavy, the chivalrous, the faithful, the tenderhearted and true! Tavy, never marry! Why, he was born to be swept up by the first pair of blue eyes he meets in the street.
ANN. Yes, I know. All the same, Jack, men like that always live in comfortable bachelor lodgings with broken hearts, and are adored by their landladies, and never get married. Men like you always get married.
TANNER [smiting his brow] How frightfully, horribly true! It has been staring me in the face all my life; and I never saw it before.
ANN. Oh, it’s the same with women. The poetic temperament’s a very nice temperament, very amiable, very harmless and poetic, I daresay; but it’s an old maid’s temperament.
TANNER. Barren. The Life Force passes it by.

Surplus Men. A few weeks ago @ChateauEmissary tweeted: “Dark Thought of the Day: A cultural, institutional, & biological assault on boys is Nature’s evolved response to a sex ratio favoring women.” There is something to that observation. Women become hogs when their pick in men is overly generous and that has downstream consequences. Therefore, we have evolved to effect a rebalancing mechanism so that young men are always tested. Under current arrangements, those with will and smarts can beat the fix with Game.

War. The aural Guernica of gunfire with Franz Schubert’s Ave Maria below is the sound of Europe’s nightfall. Poland has revered the Virgin Mary, becoming Her beloved nation, protected by Her against the depravities of history. It is time for Europe to pray.

Shots of Wisdom, Part 3 takes a look at scenes from America.

  3. Re: “Surplus Men Shot”: This one needs refinement and clarification. Women become man-hating hogs when facing an unfavorable sex ratio too.

    Consider the typical college campus these days. Skewed female, and those females having to compete with each other for the small slice of alphas. And the men at most colleges these days are much less alpha on average than even in the recent past; just go to one and “circumspice“.

    Of course the feminist ideological atmosphere is already loading the weapon with ammunition, but it is one reinforced by real experiences.

    The skew produces all kind of reckless sluttishness in the youthful and unrestrained rat race for alpha attention, combined with resentment (both towards men, and the more beautiful and more feminine women), disappointment, lack of validation, and desperate psychological reflexes of ego defense and outward projection of inchoate rage and shifts of blame away from low individual worth or merit and onto some socially designated whipping boy / scapegoat class.

    This anger and insecurity is like a building electric charge in the air, guaranteed to strike as lightning on the most convenient and socially encouraged rod at hand, no matter how unjust a target. The feminists are ready with their rod that the fault is merely the arbitrary and oppressive socially constructed patriarchal reality that ranks them as relative losers, and that in feminist egalitarian utopia they’d be perceived as more desirable and happier as a result. Poison with a candy label. That toxin cares little for sex ratios.

  4. Quality stuff as usual PA.

    You got me thinking about the “aspirational” one. I guess people with no drive or self-esteem of any kind would be this way, that is, to not be aspiritional.

    I recall an old roommate of mine commenting about U2 as we were watching a live concert of theirs. He said something to the effect that only they could do that or wouldn’t it be great to do something like that. I don’t recall the exact phrasing, but it sounded defeatist in the sense that he was okay not even trying, not even willing to go with gusto and live out what he wanted to do. Rather, he was doing, what I imagine, he thought was the right thing to do–I’m speaking career wise.

    It never sounded like the profession he chose was one he had wanted to do. It came across as though he just did it for job security and future pension payout (which given today’s climate, might not ever be paid out!) It was as though he was letting others and society dictate what his role for his life should be, rather than doing what he wanted to do.

    I, at the time, was slowly working on what I wanted to do, but still a slave to the indoctrination of the proverbial 9-5 and steady paycheck, rather than gutting it out and being your own, well, everything. (And, I went back to school, but this was more to finish what I had set out to do because it was killing me that I had allowed that to be a failure in my life.)

    Ever since taking the red-pill and reading blogs like Heartiste and the solid comments from those worth listening to, did many things change, or I should say, began to change. I was primed for the messages therein and thus drank it all with enthusiasm. In many ways, it was a a strong guiding post to prevent myself from leading a life like my old roommate and taking the courage to break away from it all.

    Still “young” in this respect, but in many ways, it’s a joy!

    Yes, the self-assuredness of the Trumps definitely clashes with the parade of grievance whiners that the DNC threw on camera last night. It was an endless stream of remarks by people whose message amounted to little more than “gubmint ain’t doing enough for me.”

    I can’t see how you can be a self-respecting white man in this country and vote for that.

  6. The Trump family presents itself as aspirational in looking like the best a man, a woman, and even a child can be

    Not to mention that the Democratic Party is also very sensitive now about portraying the nuclear family as “normative” since it’s anything but for their core constituencies.

  7. I recall an old roommate of mine commenting about U2 as we were watching a live concert of theirs. He said something to the effect that only they could do that or wouldn’t it be great to do something like that. I don’t recall the exact phrasing, but it sounded defeatist in the sense that he was okay not even trying, not even willing to go with gusto and live out what he wanted to do.

    This vignette moved me; I feel a bit the ‘fellow traveler’ in terms of the advice. I wanted to be a musician, a pop musician and feel i got to do something close. I hear your admonition toward that don’t ‘go for it.’ But I did go for it, achieved some mild footing and accomplishment playing music and then got close to music and other such vocational and engaging rewards from writing about music and other popular and classic arts.

    Yet part of me always felt a bit of failure for not attaining what i wnted as a musician. And perhaps worse, once I setttled into writing, i didn’t really try that hard to perform at a higher level. (I think pop music is perhaps the one universal dream job for kids where it’s natural and maybe even wise to tamper it down relatively early in one’s adult life —– though that, too, maybe a rationalization.)

    What surprised me was my engagement with my current job; many peopl wonder how i can stomach rote ‘ed-admin’ after a rather more exciting vocation in youth; the answer is: I can’t handle that much travel and deadline pressure anymore and —– what some here has suspected and said ——- i’m sating a long and deep lack in my soul and character: having some sort of real relationship and understanding and communion with racial peers who for much of my youth were an abstraction and either idealized or displaced.

    That is a bitch and with all sincerity i cannot convey in words how much of a burden that is lifted off one’s soul and consciousness; that’s why i believe you guys sincerely when you speak with passion and conviction of ‘your people.’ Being alienated and hypothetically connected to ‘your people’ is something i don’t wish on anyone and that was a fact for me during significant portions of my younger life.

  8. Nik, it’s interesting how strong a pull music can have on a young person. It was all consuming to me for a few years there (approx 77-79) in the glory days of punk/New Wave. Now, while I still like most of that stuff (those three years being the greatest in rock history with the mix of peak classic rock with the best of the punks) and listen to it often, it has lost all power to truly move me.

    I never aspired to being in a band (other than some wishful thinking), but I did a lot of writing about music (high school and college newspapers, plus a million fan letters to Creem magazine, many published). Also never tried to do writing professionally. I was always a practical sort, even as a teenager. But I understand the pull.

    I didn’t think much about “my people” in those days, because to me that has always just been self-evident. Of course whites are my people. I never wanted anything to do with others. And in those days whites didn’t feel especially threatened, other than by black crime, but you could avoid that (mostly) if you were smart. We never felt the existential threat to our race that we face today on every front. So now I think about my people all the time. The sad part is that so many of my people reject their own backgrounds and their own true selves. At least blacks have not for one second considered rejecting their blackness.

  9. Yet part of me always felt a bit of failure for not attaining what i wnted as a musician.

    The music biz has always been competitive, but going forward there’s almost no viable market for real, non-manufactured music from straight white males over 25, outside of country/western. Everything’s producer-driven now. Straight, gentile white males are being phased out of Hollywood, as well. All action stars are either black or imported from the UK.

  10. Nik,

    Sounds like you at least went for it, gave it a shot. My buddy was just okay with saying he couldn’t. It came across like: “If I say I can’t do it but it’d be nice, then that’s just as good as trying.”

    It wasn’t necessarily music related, it was just that what we were watching was a concert and that’s what brought that up. He was more of a movie fan and I’m sure had some aspirations for working in either showbiz or something Hollywood affiliated–and what’s even more funny, I was working at a major motion picture studio at that time.

    I think the failure is by not doing something, not putting any effort into it. Sounds to me like you succeeded where others wouldn’t even consider making an attempt.

  11. ncrit-

    It seems you enjoy writing/reminiscing about your stint as a music journalist. If you’ve got the drive, you could probably turn this into a compelling book. The best writing somehow always finds its own audience, and will often influence the top-tier musicians (& vice-versa). Without Goethe, there would have been no Beethoven. Without JP Donleavy, no Beatles, etc.

  12. PA, I love these shorter creative pieces. Well done.

    The key is to combine the poetic temperament with warrior attitude and action.

    girls I barely knew who liked what they saw still always drew the line at the southern border unless we were alone

    Yes, I know what you mean. But I usually managed to get my share. Fondling and dry-humping pretty 16-year old girls under the big oak trees in Kensington Gardens.

    Today, 30 years later, I’ve accomplished most of what I set out to do, and I’m living the dream. Still, I feel the pull of something else.

    ANN. Yes, I know. All the same, Jack, men like that always live in comfortable bachelor lodgings with broken hearts, and are adored by their landladies, and never get married. Men like you always get married.”

    This immediately reminded me of William Alexander Percy (1885-1942)–poet, author (‘Lanterns on the Levee: Recollections of a Planter’s Son’), uncle to writer Walker Percy, and staunch Roman Catholic–whose failure to marry was attributed to his intense idealization of women.

  16. — And in the meantime, observe Nikcrit’s compulsion to derail serious “talk” with some musical tangent  (Thordaddy)

    And you’re derailing it with your preaching. I deleted your string of comments except the poems.

    Consolidate your thoughts into fewer comments. Enough talk of radical autonomy or white Supremacy on this thread.

  17. t-daddy-

    I for one value your commentary, and don’t believe you are morally confused. I just think your terms have to catch up with your meanings/intentions. Nothing to be ashamed of; Nietzsche had the same problem in early works such as Birth of Tragedy. Figures such as Giordano Bruno have paid rather serious prices for the same flaw.

    As a man, I happen to value what is called ‘autonomy,’ quite naturally associating it with freedom and free-will. On the other hand I’ve found those over-harnessed in the virtual “tech milieu” have little to no real autonomy, despite cultural and epistemic pretensions of the exact opposite. Can you clarify your issue (if any) with mathematicians?

    The mere “patricians of ones and zeros” tend to work at the elementary-school level, or at best in junior-college philosophy departments.

  18. PA… You didn’t think LBF wouid get to wS with sweet talk, did you?

    The Nikcrit derailment was in the context of the “seriousness” of the dialogue to which I will always attest to maintaining in this venue although on occasion I will “lol” at some outlandishness from a fellow commentator. I refrained this time though just to make a point.

    After all, the title to the post includes “shots of wisdom” to which I granted genuine sincerity and NOT any pretension.

  19. Ryu…

    Faithful to a “reward” of seventy-two virgins on execution of a self-annihilating mass murder of “infidels” is the definition of “metaphysical” sexual degeneracy.

    Now going around butchering random white females on account of their radical sexual autonomy JUST IS the kind of captivating distraction needed to obscure the above with the most horrible of hypocrisy.

  20. EPG…

    I know of no self-avowed wS mathematicians. Even Ryu can only muster to admit to being “white supremacy” which is clearly something lesser than wS unless Capital letters mean nothing? Ones and zeros refer to the numeric nature of reality as represented in the byte to which a mathematician CANNOT deduce a final equation. Ergo, an atheistic mathematician is an oxymoron. All true mathematicians MUST BE spirited and anti-egalitarian.

  21. Ryu, I count four separate acts in that ultra-short story that could be regarded as barbarism. If someone else wrote it and I were just reading it, I’d regard Omar as unlikely to have immolated that judge. He had no motive.

  22. Thor,
    Y’know, it feels sort of galling for you to throw some casual and unnecessary disses my way, when i’m the one on this and earlier blogs with this crew who showed interest, respect and offered back to you at a time when GLP and SOBL and other longtime regular commenters were ready to dismiss you entirely.

    I’ve pointed out what I think you’re particular detached and objective talent is, and I’ve even cited exemplary comments of yours from previous and now-defunct blogs that i felt distinctly showed your particular skill; the ONLY consistent criticism i’ve leveled at you is you obtuseness and cryptic-ness —- which are UNIVERSALLY ACKNOWLEDGED by the aforementioned blog runners and familiar commenters.

    So, now you’re going to trash me in the service of making some tangential points and defenses on your behalf before OTHER regulars who are getting their fill of you?

    Damn! Tell me again about that white Nordic nobility and sacrifice.

    In any case, there’s a difference between distraction and/or diversion and a fleeting interlude of brevity and lightheartedness; furthermore, those digressions were not hard 180s from the topic at hand but rather discursive but still connected anecdotes.

  23. p.s.—-
    btw, your 6:35 comment to EPA sounds like a OCD patient who’s been off his Wellbutrin; you sound like John Nash in “A Beautiful Mind.”

    Straight up: you truly sound at times like a man who is going crackers; that can have rewards (i.e., those rare gems of unbiased rumination and denouement you occasionally proffer). But it can get sticky trying to sift through all that cluttered conjecture, no

  24. — “There are no secrets better kept than the secrets everybody guesses.” –G. Bernard Shaw (Each Pond Gone)

    “Man and Superman” also has a series of maxims at the end. A mix of Wildean paradoxes and Marxist/anarchist stuff I have no patience for. Example of the former: “Titles distinguish the mediocre, embarrass the superior, and are disgraced by the inferior.”

    — That toxin cares little for sex ratios. (Handle)

    Great point. There is a number of independent vectors in the toxic stew today. The “hot guy with a busted chick” phenomenon we see a lot is precisely what you get when females have it too good, with the oversupply of men. Guys jacking themselves up to fight over scraps. The ChateauEmissary tweet was onto something, with how today’s anti-male culture may be a collective subconscious mechanism to cut down on the supply of fuckable/marriageable men, given an absence of wars and other ways in which nature culled young men. Nature red in tooth and claw reasserts herself as usual.

    — i’m sating a long and deep lack in my soul and character: having some sort of real relationship and understanding and communion with racial peers who for much of my youth were an abstraction and either idealized or displaced. (Nikcrit)

    I can’t say that I don’t entirely relate. My vacation in Poland last month hit me hard (in a good way). It’s the first time I’ve travelled extensively through the country in 15 years. I still haven’t been able to get my thoughts ordered enough to make a post out of the long chaotic draft I have sitting in the “Drafts” folder.

    — We never felt the existential threat to our race that we face today on every front. (Peterike)

    There were savage cases of rape in Germany when Merkel’s invaders first flooded the country. I can’t help but imagine smaller towns or the more non-vibrant areas of larger cities where people also hadn’t felt that threat, and let their kids out unsupervised because race war was the furthest thing from their consciousness.

    I appreciate your seriousness. No sarcasm.

  25. — why do you call Omar’s actions “barbaric”? You don’t approve of that revenge attack? (Ryu)

    To add to my earlier response to Ryu, was the immolation itself barbaric? or were there 3 other things that you could call barbaric instead? Who did the immolation? Omar was glad to have gotten off with community service, he had no grudge against that judge.

  26. Nikcrit…

    I actually hold no contempt for you. But I do desire to beat your stubbornness to death. “We” are five or six years hence and you are STILL asking, “what is wS?”

  27. ***“To enrage a right winger, tell him a lie; to enrage a left winger, tell him the truth.”***

    When I was much younger and way more naive, I harbored a certain sympathy with the red man’s lot. I once shared what I understood as their deep harmony with nature with my grandfather, who is about as right as they come but kicks extravagant lies around nonetheless with abandon (I think it’s to amuse himself more than anything; he’s basically grown immune to any liquor altogether).

    He nearly crashed his 1940s pickup, glared at me and berated the “savages” with a face containing more integrity than I’d ever found in all the pages of War and Peace put together — swigging his whiskey as if he could taste it again after decades of tolerating futile swill. It was then that I turned alt-right, although at the time I was about as familiar with the literal alt-right as the proto-savages themselves — nil. The European Soul is well in tact; the White Race will be fine

  28. I wrote that last thing “under the influence.” In stark contrast, I’m not yet immune to bourbon. It reads rushed and distracted, which is what I was at that time last night. Cheers

  29. As a man, I happen to value what is called ‘autonomy,’ quite naturally associating it with freedom and free-will.

    Every time I think I understand T-Diddy’s use of the term “radical autonomy” he adds 7 more posts that make me rethink that.

    The white race could use more enforcers. That’s what gives a group it’s teeth and produces fear in our enemies.

    There was WS gang called the 211 banged a DOC bigshot back in 2013.

    Laughably incompetent crimes like this are not scaring anyone, or accomplishing anything on behalf of the WN movement.

  30. Camlost…

    Desiring absolute freedom on a finite playing field…

    This is the most succinct definition of “radical autonomy” I have offered.

    And clearly the ethos is self-annihilating and akin to running head first into a wall.

  31. Thordaddy is a special nationalist and deserves special priviliges, PA.

    It is the philosophical contradictions in one’s thinking that lead to outward results. If the white race is just like any other race, there is really no reason to fight for WN. A belief in white supremacy is key for a nationalist.

    Probably TD is the most persistant WN there is. He has outlasted many lesser nationalists. If only we could get him to write about a more practical, substantial subject, like bouncing….

  32. Camlost…

    Now think of the “microaggression” as the nigger’s reaction to nearing that “wall” of absolute freedom BUT not wanting to face total annihilation right then and there. He declares a “microaggression” indicating his conscious attempt to inch ever closer to his “wall” of absolute freedom without actually reaching Final Liberation.

  33. The late Lawrence Auster would deem this liberationist cog-dis as an “unprincipled exception.” But this notion gives credence to the idea that the liberationist has a “principle.” He does not.

  34. Ryu…

    Perhaps I will… There is much radical autonomy to be found in the “art” of bouncing.

    BUT…

    Profiling fellow autonomists is a far greater skill in my humble opinion.

  35. “Probably TD is the most persistant WN there is. He has outlasted many lesser nationalists. If only we could get him to write about a more practical, substantial subject, like bouncing…”

    I just might have to have the above quote printed and framed! Lolzz!

  36. What the others here don’t know, TD, is that you learned most of this on your own.

    Observing people drinking alcohol and chasing women can teach a person alot about degeneracy. Especially when it is done over long periods of time – not just weeks, but decades.

    It must be quite a thing. You’ve had time to see how a PUA like Roosh might start, the development of several years….and then, the time when he stops coming in. And seeing this happen time and time again, with many PUA types. A pattern forms.

  37. PA…

    It’s not a “formula.” Only formulated for those most adept at “equations,” ie., high IQ “white” male liberationists. The purpose of which is to expose their “radical autonomy” as they fit to rage at a supposedly incomprehensible “equality”

  38. Many voters don’t like aspirational.

    There’s soooo much more to be said about this topic when considering the outlook of the Democratic Party compared to the Republican Party, on many different levels.

    For one, the Trump family represents everything that the Dem Party hates about America, economically speaking:

    1. They’re self-confident whites who don’t revere big government activism and trans-national SWPL values with religious, messianic undertones
    2. They’re unashamed nationalists who put American first, unlike the rootless, landless, cosmopolitan globalists who lead the Democratic Party – they actually believe that America should be for the Americans
    3. The name “Trump” itself represents hustle and hard work in the business world, rather than grievancing your way to getting ahead

    PA’s “aspirational” theme reminds me of the puzzlement that you see from Democratic Party leaders when they talk about rural whites often refusing to make use of welfare and not supporting more the politicians who campaign on expanding big government solutions, when NAMs of their same economic class vote emotionally for the handout -promising politicians every time. Democratic leaders just don’t understand that even the poorest whites are still “aspirational” and want to see an America where the self-made and the hard working are the ones who get ahead, and they regard successful businessmen like Trump as they best of that strain of striving American, even if they themselves aren’t able to achieve as much…

    I disagree with some of the talk here that White Nationalism can only come through White Supremacy. Japan is a perfectly good example of a country which doesn’t waste time worrying about “supremacy” – they just maintain that crazy idea that Japan should be for the Japanese, and others don’t belong there.

    If you ask me, SWPL liberalism is far more white supremacist than traditional American conservatism. SWPL’s believe that we should export Western white liberal values everywhere (ie Obama going to Kenya and lecturing them on gay marriage and being shocked when they told him to go to hell). Liberal elitists also believe that anyone who immigrates to the West immediately sees the unquestionable wisdom of western liberal values (the pinnacle of arrogance) and also believe that if all countries were merely exposed to the SWPL elitist ideas they would immediately see their wisdom and embrace them willingly.

    Japan is no example of healthy regeneration. Japan IS RIPE with sexual degeneracy (as is ALL of Asia). Japan boasts incredibly high-rates of self-annihilation (suicide in cuck-speak). And of course, Japanese are on that island RIGHT TO NEXT TO China.

    Liberation is the chaos in between an uncertain origin (where does my life begin) and a TOTALLY annihilating terminus.

  41. I said that I don’t like wall to wall comments repeating the same formula and TD starts posting wall to wall comments repeating the same formula. Comments deleted.

  42. Thordaddy, I am patient with you but you are persistent in arguing with me about house rules. I now ask you (just you) to limit yourself to one comment for the remainder of the day and two comments per day from tomorrow-on.

  43. Our present tradition of hitting the iron stems in large part from a great essay by Japanese revolutionary Yukio Mishima (Sun and Steel). I personally still lift strictly in cycles, alternating between calisthenic periods and rotations with the weights. The iron completely transformed Mishima’s life. Japan and its history continues to interest me; it’s right there behind Germany and the Americas.

  44. Our present tradition of hitting the iron stems in large part from a great essay by Japanese revolutionary Yukio Mishima

    Yeah, Mishima is not exactly the type of figure that liberals love… then or now. He and the other titan of Japanese post-war traditionalism (Hiroo Onoda) were about as far right wing as you can get, kinda like Pat Buchanan with a sword and an itchy blade grip. But even his classical Japanese concept of “bushido” really can’t be properly termed as nationalism – the samurai pledged themselves to their individual leader or shogun, while the much larger concept of a “nation” is a modern, European creation.

    Who knows. The “First Kiss” item would have drawn a fine diatribe from him no doubt. Hope he’s doing well. A commenter from months back I liked was JumpinJackFash.

  46. “Japan is no example of healthy regeneration. Japan IS RIPE with sexual degeneracy (as is ALL of Asia). Japan boasts incredibly high-rates of self-annihilation (suicide in cuck-speak).”

    So what? The Japanese are odd. They like weird things. Let them have their culture. They have the sense to keep it to themselves. High rates of self-annihilation? So what. There’s 127 million of them. And in Japan, suicide can be honorable.

    The nitwits at the Wash Post had an article a while back about the “dramatic” (!) decline in Japan’s population. Yeah, from 128 million to 127 million five years later. Wow. Meanwhile, in 1920 the population was 55 million and they were just fine.

  47. “A commenter from months back I liked was JumpinJackFash.”

    Yeah, that guy was a gas, gas, gas.

    Ok, couldn’t resist!

    Exactly. It’s their country, and what they choose to do with it is nobody else’s damn business since they’ve had the good sense to remain sovereign and homogeneous. If they want to dwindle down til there’s 3 people inhabiting every empty and forlorn prefecture then that’s the way it should be.

    And white America is not exactly suicide-free, either.

    I wonder what happened to Heretic Phi.

    Who knows. The “First Kiss” item would have drawn a fine diatribe from him no doubt.

    Maybe he finally found a gal to help him forget his silly and constraining “values.” Usually when a buddy disappears and you can’t reach him anymore you assume (or hope, in this case) he found a chick who’s tying up all his time.

  49. If you missed the exciting DNC convention, check out the wrap-up by Max Kolonko. He’s a former Polish TV White House correspondent, and now some kind of a NYC-based journalist who appears to have a free hand at commentary. His style is Ramzpaul on speed. Wry observations on blackitty-blackification of the Democratic Party as part of its leftward-movement strategy and a reflection on the polarization of the country, observations about Bernie Sanders, millennials, etc.

    I was gonna make it into a post but I am still following my rule of No Lazy Posts, such as “hey, check out this cool video” absent original commentary on my part.

  50. Hi PA,

    Jack Donovans distinction between a good man and being good at being a man is insightful when it comes to deciding who is a real man. Women decide who is an attractive man, but not who is good at being a man. Other men decide who is good at being a man, ie a “real man.” On the flipside, men decide which women are attractive, but do women decide who is good at being a woman? Is there a distinction between a good woman and a woman who is good at being a woman? Is the distinction only a function of physical attraction? A woman good at being a woman can be a loving grandmother but she’s not a good woman because of The Wall? Is physical attraction the main component of a “good woman.” ?

    There is a dearth of thinking and writing on the alt right about femininity (probably because there’s a dearth of females lol) that an aspiring up comer could fill if they had the talent and the insight. On the other hand, this may be an impossible task because as men we don’t know women like women know women, and on the other hand, bloggers like CH have convinced me that women themselves lie to themselves about their true nature in order to protect their ego. If this barrier to understanding women could somehow be broken down and understood beyond the latest PUA tactics, that would be the one thing that would take the alt right to the next level. I don’t mean that in a white knight sense that women would/should join us and become militant white nationalists, but more in a sense of being able to make good predictions and take advantage of whatever situations are handed down to us.

    Good predictions are the main reason why I follow alt right thinkers anyways. After all, the only way to know if your ideology is correct is, does it consistently make accurate predictions? Once you start thinking about things in a racial/HBD sense, a lot of stuff makes sense that didn’t before. At the same time, we should be careful of wielding only a hammer in our toolkit or else everything will begin to look like a nail. You can see this one sided way of thinking in free market libertarians or Marxists, where economics is the end all be all and they end up missing the forest for the trees. That’s why gender relations, economics, race, spirituality should all be accounted for.

    A pattern I have noticed: Thinkers like musicians will come out of the gate swinging and then they just kind of dry up. A real shame it is, almost like losing a good friend. One writer I have in mind particularly was a young Irish lad who went by the handle Francis Begbie. His blog can be found here, with the latest entry from 2014. http://thesoulisnotasmithy.blogspot.com/

  51. I sense that our proprietor is taking a measured approach, so I’m hoping he’ll be around for a while.

    He’s a good man. — that’s what she said!

    He’s a real man. — so the story goes.

    The clip from As Good As It Gets would be appropriate here.

    Women have maternal instincts. Other than that, some of them have some reason, but most of them are in short supply with that.

    Everyone, not just women — is motivated by trying to make themselves look good, and feel good about their position and their place.

    Do women have to lie about their motivations? To the extent that they can get away with it, women will lie about their motivations to men; but not necessarily to themselves.

    The greatest lie ever told (besides the 6 million dead gay jews), is that women are more complicated than men. That is the joke of the ages.

    Though every man and every women is motivated by concerns on their status — men can address their status concerns through accomplishments, whereas women are less able and inclined to do that. Women have to play the social game. Women are constrained to the soap opera drama. Whereas some (real) men are able to rise above that through real-world accomplishments.

    Some women try to go that route too, but they are at a disadvantage because they are smaller and weaker and more of their brains are naturally concerned with their feelings, and how others feel too.

  53. — On the flipside, men decide which women are attractive, but do women decide who is good at being a woman? (Jumpin Jack Fash)

    Damn good questions. My of-the-cuff answer from “The Mudshark: A Comedy Or A Tragedy?” post:

    Wisdom is a product of patriarchy. Old women transmit their fathers‘ lessons to their granddaughters. The man is a tree, with women as vines wrapped around him, assuming his shape. Where there is nothing upright, the vine creeps along the ground. Woman — like any human being — has agency but she needs a man’s guidance to balance her sometimes conflicting instincts, and without that guidance she flails.

    The sexist (and sexy) answer is that men decide everything because without male objectivity — from which all law, civilization, ethics, morality flows — a woman drowns in herself.

    — A woman good at being a woman can be a loving grandmother but she’s not a good woman because of The Wall? Is physical attraction the main component of a “good woman.” ?

    This is an easier question, I answer NO. You can desire to fuck a beautiful but heartless woman but you may not be so inclined to sacrifice a whole lot for her. In fact, you may feel some satisfaction at her finding her comeuppance in life as justice. But picture a plain girl who comes off as good-hearted and you will instinctually feel protective of her.

    Older women are no longer sex objects, except to men who remember them from their young years, but they are valued if they are good women. Goodness or evil persists in a woman. Hillary Clinton is morally repellent, while your grandmother or some other woman the same age as Clinton you think of fondly is not. Moral ugliness or beauty is reflected in her appearance, aura even.

    Physical attractiveness persists in older woman of the right moral qualities. Not in the erotic way, but in other ways. Kindness, self-control, desire to serve, and other feminine virtues are reflected in her face and we recognize it.

  54. There is no being a good woman, besides being a man (and they suffer for that, obviously) or being a mother.

    There are like 2 women on the face of the Earth who are content with being men. Otherwise their motherlessness gets sublimated into liberal politics. Merkel’s boner, for instance. Saving the benighted Negroes.

    Men however are quite often contented being women.

  55. “[A] beautiful but heartless woman…” — PA

    You apparently will not realize how destructively subvervise is the above claim?

  56. The reason that the Alt-rite speaks little of femininity is that a) most are daughterless and b) they STILL call dyke movement “femininism.”

  57. Woman, by idealized definition, is the least of a man’s problem. And the terrible tendency to deconstruct EVERYTHING turns “woman” into its antithesis and thus wholly contrary to “man.”

    In short, this constant use of “woman” to interchangeably speak of dykes and de facto dykes and female liberationists and young girls and just females in general is the deleterious deconstructing habit of a people UNCONSCIOUSLY immersed in a liberated language.

  58. @thordaddy,

    I have no idea what you’re saying dude. How about bringing it down to planet earth?

  59. Can “man” be so literally deconstructed that he and the out-and-out male homosexual can be used interchangeably within our communications SO MUCH SO that the masses now communicate a “homosexual man” into reality? So when a homosexual like Jack Donovan pontificates on what it means to be a “man” in derisive contrast to some unnamed dyke, HOW IS HE EVEN TAKEN SERIOUSLY when his homosexuality IS A STRAIGHTFORWARD REJECTION of manhood? And if “homosexuality” is not a rejection of manhood then there simply is no such thing as “rejection of manhood” because there just isn’t such a thing as manhood. Maleness, sure. Manhood, not.

  60. JJF…

    How many actual WOMEN to you interact with everyday versus the dykes, lesbians, adolescent girls, teenage females or just plain female liberationists in general THAT YOU MUST ALSO interact with if you actually inhabit planet earth?

    Read your typical alt-riter on the topic of females and you would think only “woman” existed WHEN she is in these modern times the rarest of females.

    If you use “woman” linguistically to speak of dyke and lesbians and female liberationists and girls and whatnot, not only do you degrade “woman,” but you exalt the latter above, illegitimately. Call a dyke a “woman” and you degrade woman to elevate dyke. Call a man a homosexual and you degrade man to elevate homosexual. It is very straightforward. It’s called “equality.”

  61. It seems one common thread running through all real white men throughout Western Civilization was a deep loyalty to telling Truth.

  62. THE VIDEO VIDEO HERE. Original footage is (obviously) in English (where it is not in Spanish). His commentary is subtitled in English.

    This was great –
    Always interesting to get the perspective of an outsider detached from the prevailing pieties surrounding the election. I LOL’d at his pithy appraisal of Bernie voters as “millennials who find capitalism difficult.”

    I sporadically tuned into the DNC convention, and from what I could tell, it was a big fat middle finger to white America – to white men in particular. No doubt this was a strategic decision: Hilary will not get the non-college white male vote so she is counting on blacks and latinos to actually go to the polls in the absence of NAM candidate. a tried and true way to do this to appeal to their ever present sense of grievance, make lots of emotional appeals, with tears and clapping and overcoming and such. To drag out an illegal immigrant onto the stage for a tear jerking appeal for amnesty and then give a platform to Mike Brown’s mother, spoke volumes about the Democrats’ plans for America. I think it is no longer conspiratorial to assume their ultimate goal is to neuter the white man with illegal immigration and NAM crime.

    And this narrative that the left has been pushing, that black men are getting killed by cops disproportionally, is it even true? The actual data that I have seen seems equivocal. The most recent study performed by Roland Fryer, a black economist at Harvard, says no. Regardless, the left seems to have adopted the BLM narrative as an unassailable fact.. to so much as question it amounts to heresy. (general observation about the leftist mindset: it is womanly mode of thinking that relies on manipulative emotional appeals, groupthink, social shaming, guilt tripping, complaining, ect… would you agree?)

    As an aside I often wonder what would happen to blacks if they actually lost their collective grievances. I thought that might happen with the election of Obama, but it only seemed to intensify it. It seems this population is very much enamored with it’s own oppression and without the white man to blame, they would lose all sense of collective purpose.

  63. MGE: glad you liked the video. Good point re. outsider’s perspective, like Kolonko’s bemusement at an illegal alien’s full protection under the law. Plus like you say, giving a platform to a vicious criminal’s unrepentant mother

    Thordaddy: I don’t want to be heavy-handed with you but you’re pushing me. I said “a maximum of two comments per day” from you [just you, does not apply to others]. Reasons: (1) an effort at continence will do your message well; and (2) people stop following a comment thread if they see it plastered with your idiosyncratic vocabulary.

    Out of my good will, I am giving you one more chance to obey the house rules. If you fail to follow them I will mod you.

  64. As an aside I often wonder what would happen to blacks if they actually lost their collective grievances. I thought that might happen with the election of Obama, but it only seemed to intensify it.

    As I’ve been saying, blacks live a completely derivative existence in relation to the white man.

  65. The guerrilla actions of my local group from a few weeks ago (which I haven’t talked about here) apparently have provoked an official response.

    So satisfying to see.

  66. Trump has become like the wistful and dusty fumes of sleepless semi engines. Everywhere — and thus, nowhere. So has syncopated “hip hop” and the automatized supermarket

  67. “(general observation about the leftist mindset: it is womanly mode of thinking that relies on manipulative emotional appeals, groupthink, social shaming, guilt tripping, complaining, ect… would you agree?)”

    OK, Still, I wonder: do you think a Trump administration is better for you and your particular constituencies, however idiosyncratic?

  68. “(general observation about the leftist mindset: it is womanly mode of thinking that relies on manipulative emotional appeals, groupthink, social shaming, guilt tripping, complaining, ect… would you agree?)”

    That’s exactly right. Women are conformists at the core and they can’t deal with cold, hard facts and logic. This is why matriarchal societies are completely devoid of capitalism/investment and functional justice systems – it’s all about how you’re feeling at the moment, not what the law says. This is why the DNC still insists on the emotional effect of parading Michael Brown’s momma on stage despite the fact that different inquiries (two by Eric Holder) completely disproved the whole mendacious premise behind “hands up, don’t shoot.”

    If you want to see matriarchal civilizations that are feminized to an emotional hyper-core look to sub-Saharan Africa. They suck ass because they lack objectivity. As Steve Sailer has pointed out many times, feminists there don’t cry about the “glass ceiling” – instead they spend their time actually begging men to get off their asses and actually do some of the work.

    OK, Still, I wonder: do you think a Trump administration is better for you and your particular constituencies, however idiosyncratic?

    yes, Trickin’. As we all should know by now, “we” only need for Trump to close the border and get America back to thinking like a nation. That’s job #1. Bringing manufacturing jobs back to the USA would help the white working class, as well. (while we still have one). We don’t need to revere him as some cure-all Messiah in the same way that blacks always look to the government for every solution.

  69. Unfortunately for the lefist cause in America it’s starting to look like Obama got put into office while the electorate is still overwhelmingly white – and liberalism has played its identity politics too early, galvanizing whites.

  70. Sorry, meant to say that Obama was put into office TOO EARLY. The liberals have overplayed their hand and the mask has been torn off their blatantly anti-white male agenda.

  71. “This is why the DNC still insists on the emotional effect of parading Michael Brown’s momma on stage despite the fact that different inquiries (two by Eric Holder) completely disproved the whole mendacious premise behind “hands up, don’t shoot.””

    Yes, this was a surprise to me and depressing as hell…. I can’t recall being more uninspired by a election; you and yours are so galvanized by the good things Trump brings that you have blinders to the sheer reckless possibility his existence comes with. I fear for your disappointment-bearing between now nad November; i think y ou’ve lost sight of what he’s capable of.

    I just want some action, period, i’m so bored. I cannot conceive of a more uninspired combo than HRC & Kaine. Soooo, 1992

  72. ncrit-

    Probably, where you generally “get groceries.” Complete w/ self-checkout options and low-T 80s tunes showering the numbly-branded aisles

  73. LBF, I want to tell you about a special problem.

    Stupid people who are disorganized and random can’t get away with it in the long run because they rely on luck.

    Smart people have a weakness too. Anyone who is good at anything wants credit…always! But some thing in this life we can’t take credit for, especially if we work outside the system.

    Getting hooked on the action. Feeling like one is invincible. These are REAL things. One has to be very careful with this. It is no different than gambling on Wall Street. Fear and greed. You’ve always got to cover the backside. Just like investing, the key is not growth, but limiting losses. The primary skill of any WN DA leader is dealing with heat.

  74. you and yours are so galvanized by the good things Trump brings that you have blinders to the sheer reckless possibility his existence comes with.

    Trickin, the President doesn’t have unilateral power to do big things in that many areas. I’m still waiting to hear you provide some examples of the types of crazy stuff you think he’s capable of doing, especially since Trump already shot down your idea of Omarosa as VP and nominated the most bland VP candidate in the history of Western Civilization. (just as I predicted) Instead, he says he planning to make Omarosa his envoy/czar to your father’s people.

    Immigration policy and supreme court appointments are two of the most impactful areas where the President’s individual decisions can have huge immediate results, without the necessary approval of Congress.

  75. OK, Cam, we’ll see how things play out.

    I’m damn-near indifferent, though i’d sorta like to see a GOP prez just to shake things up; i think of HRC as another four years like the past eight.

    Don’t matter to me anymore; I just analyze the socio-racial-politico circumstance i’m confronted with and create from there——- the halfrican adaptive ability: ‘separate but equal habitats.” lol…

  76. The stock market is the PERFECT training arena for an aspiring WN.

    Everyone dreams of the big score, and making the big money. A young WN dreams of his white ethnostate. Actually the first concern is not getting caught, retaining one’s freedom or keeping the principle.

    Start with 100 dollars. If you lose 50% of it, you have to earn a 100% return just to get back to even. If you lose 33%, you’ve got to earn 50% to get even.

    The arithmetic of the game forces one to focus more on limited loss than maximizing gain. It is the same in WN. Things are so much easier is one doesn’t have a record, and hasn’t been to jail/prison.

    There is no such thing as getting rich quick, in the WN sense or Wall Street sense. It is being able to stay in the game for many years where one sees the real gains. In WN it takes 5 years just to get started.

    Everyone can handle the gains, but few can handle the lows. To be successful, one has to invert that formula. If only our DAAs put half the effort into getting away with it as they put into the action.

  77. Considering most of the liberals I know are very white white people, I think the blackness of the Democratic Party is part of the appeal. A liberal male recently told me he preferred lower class blacks to lower middle class whites because he has so much trouble with white racism. He does not have a whole lot of experience with blacks, though.

  78. I’m glad that Ryu picked up on the Barbarism item. Here is a breakdown of four ostensibly barbaric acts that occur in that ultra-short story: (1) Omar’s of-screen crime, presumably a nasty one like rape of an underage European person — news from Western Europe come in almost daily; (2) the female judge’s barbarically light sentence, in proportion with the weight of the crime; (3) Omar’s family’s shameless celebration of his light punishment; (4) the extrajudicial immolation of the judge who issued that horrifically lenient sentence.

    Number 4 seems barbaric, and maybe it is. But it is also a something that nature herself cried out for. Who could have done it? Maybe it is someone who felt extremely aggrieved by a miscarriage of justice, and as a result spent two months planning this rebalancing of scales.

  79. http://www.reparations.me/

    ^^ Are we even the same species as these white dumbfucks?

    If you click on the “about” page it looks like a black female who set this up. The Website sucks and has poor organization and terrible graphics, I would’ve expected better from SWPL’s.

    But I’ve got no problem with this site, as long as it’s privately paid goods and services as reparations and not paid by the government. In fact, I think that all “self-identifying” white liberals should be required to complete at least 3-5 of these tasks per month as a way of proving their worth and penitence. (they’ll get conservative in a big hurry after that)

    POC 6: I want to scream and cuss at someone.
    White Person 6: “I volunteer as tribute. How do we set this up?”

    Hahaha to the 30th power.

  80. Yes, a dindu set it up. What got me are the whites on that site offering to do all kinds of shit for Africans, because muh reparations. I literally can’t even.

  81. What got me are the whites on that site offering to do all kinds of shit for Africans, because muh reparations. I literally can’t even.

    Yeah,but I suspect the site is full of sh** because there’s too much matching between the services wanted and the services offered. They’re exactly the same.

    Also, I can’t see gobs of black people feeling as if their “reparations itch” is satisfied by some random SWPL giving them informal training in Microsoft Excel or providing occasional pet sitting help. They want money or gift cards.

  82. Ryu, I like your stock market analogy.

    When I got interested in stocks and the like and started reading up on it, the one theme was it’s all about mitigating risk as much as possible.

    It’s a good reminder as it relates to other factors in life.

  83. Y’all probably missed it: Sorceryjoke tried trolling here two days ago (promptly spammed), then wrote a post on his blog with several hilarious paragraphs dedicated to me. Then he bit at my heel at CH this morning.

    The great thing about alt-Right internet is communicating with intelligent and interesting people I’d never have come across otherwise. The flip side to that is encountering the wierdos one would otherwise steer clear of.

    If you’re tempted to comment there, be mindful that doing so you’ll provide him with your IP number.

  84. Take my advice and don’t even browse it out of curiosity. Sorcerynut’s site is just bizarre and painful to read… in a very, very scary kind of way. It doesn’t have a single redeeming quality, and he’s also in this frantic hurry to elevate himself up to the status and participation level of CH or some of the other alt-right sites.

    [agreed 100% — PA]

  85. I saw his reply today on CH’s post and love how you responded with VD’s gamma analysis list.

    I’ve been tempted to visit his blog, but didn’t want to give him either the foot-traffic or any potential tracking of any kind.

    @Camlost–you’re exactly right. It’s one thing to earn the status versus telling people to give it to you, which is what SG’s all about.

  86. It seems that calling *yourself* a God of Sorcery would automatically disqualify you from engaging in anything approaching the real thing.

  87. Sorcery God is scary. I generally feel like I can relate to men who feel marginalized, but I could not at all with him.

  88. You guys are increasing my curiousity at the Sorcerer, rather than decreasing it.

    What is so “scary” about him? Are my fellow WNs scared little kittens?

    WN itself is a fringe activity. But WN itself has fringes. I’ve picked up alot from racist extremists. After a few years in WN, I should think they only thing that would frighten a WN is the USG itself. American nationalists LIVE in a nation that has killed millions of people, has torture camps, a controlled media, more police brutality than any other country, and a public that loves it. What’s more scary than that?

  89. OK, Still, I wonder: do you think a Trump administration is better for you and your particular constituencies, however idiosyncratic?

    As I discussed in a previous thread, I am no fan of Trump and I wish we had a candidate whose instincts roughly align with his, but with more class and character. In fact I think you have expressed more admiration of Trump than I was willing to offer, which is why I’m puzzled by your charges that I have “radicalized.” I in fact supported Kasich and would have even tolerated Rubio.

    But to answer your question, there are many reasons why I would support an alt-right candidate, not just out of my own self interest, but out of concern for the nation as a whole. Many of those issues we have discussed at length here include immigration, white identity, crime, entitlements, etc… But most salient at the moment is the clash of civilizations between the west and Islam, which liberals are LYING about. Only Trump has expressed any moral clarity on the topic of Islam, when he said in his speech after Orlando “America must unite the entire civilized world in the fight against radical Islam.” Why can’t Obama or Hillary SAY that? It strikes me as the pinnacle of cowardice that they are unable to even name the enemy that we are dealing with, and to honestly discuss their true motives violates the sanctity of political correctness – and these are motives that the jihadists are telling us about ceaselessly! Have we become so effete as a nation as to imagine that we don’t have enemies – and to the extent that we do, they are of our own creation? To regurgitate such nonsense as “ISIS has nothing to do with religion” or that it is a “perversion of religion” is probably the most Orwellian newspeak I have ever heard in my lifetime. The term Islamophobia, which Hillary and Obama use without compunction, is a term invented by the left to shame and silence any legitimate concerns about Islam. Is it reasonable to be more concerned about Islam at this moment than say, Mormonism? Is there such a thing as Mormonophobia? Did you see the popular satirical musical Book of Mormon, by the creators of South Park, which relentlessly mocked the Mormon faith? Could you imagine the alluhah akbar massacres that would take place if a similar play was made about Islam? Why is it OK, according to the left, to mock Mormonism, but the slightest criticism of a religion that is actually hostile to liberal values, gets met by hysterical screeches of bigotry or racism?

    Why do these pieties and double standards exist, and why does the left enforce them? We are talking about a religion that is encouraging adherents to execute people for drawing a cartoon of Mohammed, to behead an elderly Catholic priest during mass and to use the snuff film as recruitment. I just can’t understand why the left consistently lies about this reality, tries to sweep it under the rug, and tells us that to simply NOTICE this reality of Islamic jihad and its direct ties to the Quran and the Hadiths, is “Islamophobia.” I find it galling and irresponsible and frankly bullying that any of our leaders would utter phrases so deliberately obfuscatory, that to me it seems like a slap on the face to any thinking person who has any concern for the maintenance of a free, tolerant society. I can not honestly in any fair assessment, find such hostility to free speech and thought on the right as I see on the left. The left has become increasingly totalitarian and frankly regressive, with their glib multiculturalism, and their smug proclamations of tolerance, they have rushed to the defense of theocrats.

  90. I’ve been reading his work, PA (without commenting) so far.

    Blogging works in both directions. The writer can change the audience, and the audience can change the writer.

    You guys have no faith. He is still a young WN. I have found that it is easier to moderate an extremist, than the radicalize a moderate.

    Facing long odds is what WN is about. It’s all we do. There is literally nothing that should scare a WN after they’ve been around for awhile. Maybe I’ll train him myself, and make you eat those words, PA.

  91. “I can not honestly in any fair assessment, find such hostility to free speech and thought on the right as I see on the left. The left has become increasingly totalitarian and frankly regressive, with their glib multiculturalism, and their smug proclamations of tolerance, they have rushed to the defense of theocrats.”

    Yes, I believe this summation to your comment very tidily wraps up my own thoughts. The two points that slightly counter that somewhat though are: 1) I give some credence to the don’t totally vilify the religion, as it’s roughly on par with christianity in terms of the ‘degrees of devoutness amongst its adherents; i.e., everyone from gun-totin’ zealots to near-secular swpls who say ‘i was born catholic’…. 2) I believe there is genuine tactical merit to say you don’t want to vilify and put on the defensive all muslims, as those near-seculars and many other educated practitioners truly ARE valuable in terms of intel and other forms of anti-jihad infiltration.

    That said, I too don’t understand the mealy-mouthed responses to all the brazen talk from radical Islamsists; personally speaking, the overall rhetoric, lifestyle and social dispositions of aggregate muslim culture disagrees with my preferences and temperament and I do believe it’s in no way ‘intolerant’ to say and aspire to the statement “the US is a christian nation.

    It’s a bit of a tightrope and i can see how my rap on this topic is unappealing ’round these here parts; many alt-righters wish to ramp up the discord and tension in order to bring about a confrontation that they feel is duly needed; i just might agree if the invaders pushback toward a general U.S. Christianity is attempted. As far as the farther-right positions such as calling for limited muslim immigration; I think the U.S. has the right to limit immigration, period, including my preference for it to temporarily be totally banned for all. But for periods when it’s not, I also believe there’s a principled argument for increased and disproportionate Western-European immigration, as the US culture and its innovations and byproducts are inextricably tied to that socio-ethnic heritage.

    Much of these debates come back to a few simple but complexing questions: Why must we beat around the bush regarding certain evident truths: HBD evidence is clear in terms of matching general populations with general national standards of living; there are clearly both negatives and positives that go with both lower and higher aggregate I.Q.’s; I for one believe in what might be termed a ’21st-century colonial’ model of national development and interaction; I STILL say the post PA did on me, but somewhat made sport of my premise, has a lot of merit and is about the closest thing you’ll ever find to a HBD-driven “Can’t We All Get Along Speech.

  92. i apologize for the syntax; i notice that regulars here has recently ‘upped’ their grammar and proofing once-overs before posting their commments; I will try do regularly do the same henceforth; typically, i most often hit ‘post comment’ a second after typing the last character to my comment. I tend to do as much in the name nad favor of ‘immediacy.’ But if that’s not the prevailing choice here, i will try to go with the overall flow, nikcrit.

  93. What is so “scary” about him? Are my fellow WNs scared little kittens?

    Scary as in sad and pathetic, not at all worried about my own physical safety.

    You guys have no faith. He is still a young WN. I have found that it is easier to moderate an extremist, than the radicalize a moderate.

    Yeah, youth is clearly a factor with him and I guess you’re right that it’s probably better to “overdo it” than do nothing at all.

    The kid’s not without a decent brain and did chime in with solid content commentary here on PA’s site. But on his own page it’s just all about him, his bizarre and unbecoming sense of humor with self-praise, his demands for followers and his penchant for comparing himself to the other major alt righters and so forth… no movement wants you to jump in and act like you’re in charge right from the outset. You gotta pay dues and build up a following like what PA is doing right now. Maybe getting shunned will help him curb his various “excesses” and cut down on the all-around suckitude of his blog.

  94. “When I got interested in stocks and the like and started reading up on it, the one theme was it’s all about mitigating risk as much as possible.”

    As far as financial advice, i did what i bet many lit majors at good universities do: piggybacked on my economic majors and MBA-seeking friends; I also went to college during the prime IT boom, and did very well with standard 401k’s that were somewhat convertible once the boom subsided.

    I look at investing and other financial services careers as something I never delved into as much as I should’ve. Yet for some reason, possibly unfounded, I think I would’ve done well at it. I recall some sort of university employee saying that a solid minority MBA would have huge value, as there was a dearth of such candidates. (Lol!! This was circa ’92 or ’93 or so)….

    Hmmmm. Maybe LBF would be interested in making me a token hire at his risk arbitrage firm? Lol!!

  95. I also went to college during the prime IT boom, and did very well with standard 401k’s that were somewhat convertible once the boom subsided.

    I work in a field that is tangentially related to IT and I’ve ignored countless solid advice to buy various stocks that would’ve made me a $$ bundle when they IPO at a certain number and then quadruple or quintuple in value in the next 6 months. But I know that as soon as I follow the advice and finally spend a few $$ grand on a startup stock it will nose dive…

  96. So much of what we do is about limiting loss, rather than chasing the Next Big Thing. Keeping it simple.

    A few years ago I did very well with Blue Chips, dividend stocks, MLPs, REITs, and gold (since 2004).

  97. If WN can just sit on what it has, the Boomer and WW2 generations will die.

    I don’t think it is a matter of “convincing” people. There’s little quarter between WN and liberal Nazism. There are some kids who are liberals, but they are getting less and less. The cool kids aren’t libbys today.

    When I talk to the young today, they don’t even know about Fight Club. That to them is some kind of fantasy, where everyone got a 50K office job.

  98. ***…they don’t even know about Fight Club.***

    How young are we talking? I haven’t yet hit my 30s and know about it. That book/film was drilled into my psyche early and often — and I’m not much of a movie person. It’s probably why I personally did not opt for high finance as my designated lifestyle in this brief sojourn on earth

  99. Best part of FC — introduced me to The Pixies, which served as a gateway drug to some other worthy rock acts in general. I previously had no interest in it, considering the whole gamut degenerate

  100. “The cool kids aren’t libbys today.”

    I think many adult assessments of ‘today’s youth’ overlook some practical-yet-meta factors, like the differences in media forms and the memes perpetuated; it’s incomparable…..yeah, ‘diversity’ IS pushed dogmatically and with vengeance and rigor by institutional forces galore.

    But it’s also just a result of media technology advances: we’ve experienced in its prime the shift from ‘one-to-many’ to ‘many-to-many’ media formats and influences; i push this often but i think sometimes that we are in the midst of such a humongous technological shift that we can’t see the neon forest for its trees: think of how much more of any sub ject or entertainment or whatever ‘thing’ you can summon and not only how much more available it is —– but just how much more instantly available it is: political influence, ‘bad blacks, good blacks, ‘hot’ blacks, transgressive porn, race propaganda, civil rights history, E.U. history, E.U. propaganda, etc.

    what’s going on in Europe right nwo, i would wager, is a rejection of muslim indoctrination via culture and proximity —— not some joint urge to return to pre 1960 socialization and media standards. The genie is out of the bottle in terms of what we might call many ‘social norms.’
    Blacks, Hispanics, Asians or whatever other ‘other’ you name can no longer be the exotic alien form it was capable of being a mere 30 years ago. Sooo, to some degree what Ryu laments is true: it just isn’t as feasible, practical, and maybe even desirable for white kids to make “Nigger Lips” faces or “Smear the Queer” changes today as it was ‘back in the good ol’ days.’

    Blame it on those brilliant white-nation-generated advances in communications technology.

    I think most race realists view sociological history and interaction through an intellectual prism of tribalism and biology and then apply Judeao-Christian ethos and cultural folklore.

    But some of us more shallow lit, journalism and media studies knuckleheads are cynical enough to view it all as the mere result of public relations and media demographic sales and marketing tricks. lol..

  101. “The Pixies, which served as a gateway drug to some other worthy rock acts in general. I previously had no interest in it, considering the whole gamut degenerate”

    I sorta regret never seeing them in their prime; i did cover their ‘farewell tour’ in ’04 or so, in which Kim Deal and Frank Black were about twice as big as they were in their hey-day…… gotta say; i don’t get the attraction—-or, rather, i don’t see anything bad but not much special about them……EPA, i have a question, just curious: do you still enjoy pop music, in all its forms: alt, indie, rap, traditional, etc.?

    I’m finding myself getting passionate about transformative jazz and classical formats and new traditions while getting deeply engrossed in deconstructing and REconstructing the pop, rap and rock of our respective lore……. I find that doing as much oddly enough INCREASES one’s playing ability —– one’s ability to HEAR and conceive of the music in a way that practically useful for future reshapings, etc.

  102. Love the new single from Band of Horses. I’m trying to see than at Ohana next month.

  103. Trickin, did you just do exactly what Thordaddy described and go off on a tangent when music was mentioned? ha ha

  104. When Pixies hit their stride circa very early 90s, I find them as real it gets in the “band” format – a euphonic arrangement I now find somewhat trite. I don’t think it ever fully realized its own undeniable potential though. If Hendrix started dabbling in symphonics like he planned to, who knows. “Bands” certainly parallel that man-to-many cultural postmodernism we’re presently more and more immersed in as a planet. Roland Barthes’ nonsensical commentary supposedly playing itself out, etc.

    I have no real interest in pop, though I have an admittedly limited understanding of what “pop” really as a circumscribed form. Same goes with “traditional,” and I never really gravitated to indie.

    Of course this blog wouldn’t be warm to this, but rap (real southern stuff) played a large role while growing up. Had some rapper friends, and I even paralleled a Houston MC’s (DJ Screw) innovations with particular breeds of microtone usage in lesser-known classical music. Classical’s always been my preference, even though I was into some mean jazz when briefly falling into ‘hard drugs’ a good while back. Your deconstruction sounds interesting, but watch out that you don’t become another Dilla or Madlib. Remember that the muses still harbor much original melody to bring to light, now and always

  105. I often wonder if my enthusiasm for ’70s-’80s punk, post-punk, and new wave bands played a part in my later racial and cultural attitudes.

  106. They played The Kinks Come Dancing at the grocery store I stopped by after work tonight. Involuntarily, I caught myself subtly dancing to the song while pushing the cart. This is something Suburban_elk writes about, how we don’t dance. Fantastic feeling.

  107. 1) I give some credence to the don’t totally vilify the religion, as it’s roughly on par with christianity in terms of the ‘degrees of devoutness amongst its adherents; i.e., everyone from gun-totin’ zealots to near-secular swpls who say ‘i was born catholic

    First, let me get one thing out of the way… I by no means wish to slander an entire religion or the 1.5 billion adherents who are for the most part nominal Muslims. We must support the vast majority of peaceful Muslims who are just as horrified by Islamic terrorism as we are. I agree with reformists like Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Maajid Nawaz who believe that the reform must come from within Islam and must be supported by the liberal west. Unfortunately these activists have been met with resistance from the regressive left, who consistently fail to support support human rights as universal values, in service of their own moral vanity. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an outspoken critic of her former faith, a Somali woman who had her genitals mutilated as a child, who endured rape and other forms of abuse, who moved to the Netherlands, learned Dutch and was elected to parliament. But this woman in 2014 was banned from a speaking engagement at Brandeis on accusations that she was “Islamophobic.”

    Your above comment suggests that you are not seeing the dynamics of this problem clearly. It is an all to common presumption and retort among secular liberals, who for the most part don’t really understand religion. The postmodern westerner tends to collapse religion into interchangable identity groups. That silly “Coexist” bumper sticker comes to mind here. We are talking about centuries old beliefs and practices, profound differences in relating to the material and spiritual world and stark differences in moral doctrine.

    Yes, there are zealots to be found in all religions and there are Muslims who eat bacon and Catholics who have abortions. But to state that Christianity is roughly on par with Islam in terms of degrees of devoutness says nothing about the doctrine to which they zealously adhere to. For instance, the practices of a fanatical believer in Hinduism is much different than a fanatical Jehovah’s Witness, because their respective religious doctrines are much different. If you understand what is actually in the Quran versus what is in the Gospels, then you will understand the what underpins this civilizational conflict. It is not uncharitable to state the plain fact that Mohammed was a warlord, who had sex slaves, and in fact formulated an elaborate system of rules for how to deal with sex slaves. Compare this to Jesus, who preached love for one’s neighbor and died on the cross, or the Buddha who spent his life meditating and teaching.

    2) I believe there is genuine tactical merit to say you don’t want to vilify and put on the defensive all muslims, as those near-seculars and many other educated practitioners truly ARE valuable in terms of intel and other forms of anti-jihad infiltration.

    Obama refuses to use the words “radical Islam” or “jihad” or in any way rhetorically link ISIS to Islam proper for this reason. (I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that he got into bed with CAIR aka Muslim Brotherhood and hoped no one would notice) I can understand why it may be pragmatic to speak this way. If it is true that millions of otherwise peaceful Muslims are sitting on this moral precipice and could be so easily toppled over into the arms of theocrats, well that is the statement of a terrifying problem. If untrue, then that is just about the most uncharitable and paranoid thing you can say about a community. Consider: more British Muslims have joined the ranks of ISIS than have joined the British Armed forces. In a recent poll 27% expressed sympathy for the Charlie Hebdo attacks. 42% of French Muslim youths say they support suicide bombings. And recent events in Turkey are more disturbing yet. This reveals some uncomfortable truths about the failures of multiculturalism that we need to be talking about.

    I engage in a lot of hyperbole on the internet, but this is one topic I am deadly serious about. Understand that for the rest of your life you will be witnessing the barbaric lunacy of jihad and its attendant atrocities. This is a problem that is not going away. This is the story of our time. There is a war of ideas that needs to waged and won and it must be done for future generations. The only thing that is stopping these people from killing millions is lack of technology and we must see to it that they NEVER get it.

  108. I will concede that I can bust an awesome move. Lots of praise from girlfriends and the ladies over the years for my rhythm. It must have been all those ballroom dancing classes as a little boy.

  109. I’ll never forget a moment in the summer of 2012. I was dating a hot young blonde (9.00/9.50) and we were on our way to a wedding up north. We stopped in Santa Barbara at the Biltmore for a couple of nights. For some reason I broke into a routine back in the room and made her laugh hysterically in a way I hadn’t seen before or after. The resultant sex, with her on top and repeatedly cumming, her big tits in my face, was well worth it.

    BTW, have you seen the salwater pool at the Santa Barbara Biltmore? It’s enormous and deep. Easily one of the most pleasant swimming and diving experiences I’ve had. I’d like to go back.

  110. ***…the barbaric lunacy of jihad and its attendant atrocities.***

    I get the sense that much of Islam is out of touch with its own history. I see very few of them at all familiar with phenomena such as Dar El-Hikma, an institutional fulcrum of scholarship buried deeply by the prevailing Western campaign of aligning the genesis of higher philosophic thought with the pre-Socratics. They are in fact more the culprits of secularism than many suspect — of straying from ‘the divinity’ and focusing more on mathematics and philosophy.

    I refuse to accept their misguided lunacy as regular spectacle throughout my life; they (such as Salafis) don’t seem to be very much interested in any captivating ideas like some of their distant and more erudite/distinguished forebears. If you want an omelette, you have to not only break some eggs — but make sure the eggs themselves aren’t rotten to begin with. If so, they are to be thrown out with the cigar butts

    ***The Kinks Come Dancing…***

    The Kinks have an impressive repertoire. My long-time favorite: their only instrumental work. It was done for a soundtrack I think:

  111. MGE: excellent points throughout, especially on the myopia on religion for the postmodern secular liberal. My thought on allies of convenience (or necessity) like Ayaan Hirsi Ali is that at some point, we part ways with them. My second-hand knowledge of her comes from the approving articles at Front Page Mag, which I used to read during W’s first administration — and Lawrence Auster’s harsh criticisms of her. Going by what I know, her animus is against religion in general, Islam in particular. As such, she objects to Christianity — and by extension European ethnonationalism — from expressing itself as a dominant element in any country’s character as well.

    Laguna Beach Fogey: I checked out the Santa Barbara Biltmore online. Similar to how Steve Sailer admires high-end golf course architecture, I found myself admiring the photos of the outdoor swimming pool. Really dig the tropical flora integrated with the Spanish-style architecture and the pool.

    Fantastic interiors too. I travelled to Miami recently to interview with a client for a yoooge contract (which we won). The interview was scheduled at short notice and normal rooms at the hotel my company uses were all booked up, so we got the required approval to book the luxury suites, which were worth every cent of the almost-grand per night cost.

    Back to pools: I went to Key West with a friend when my family was spending time with the in-laws and ended up drinking too much one evening. I didn’t do anything stupid while drunk, except spending way more money than I planned. The next morning I woke up at pre-dawn hours feeling like death from the hangover and went over to the outdoor pool, which had spectacular tropical plants around it as well as gorgeous landscaping. There was a small group of Scandinavian-sounding 20-something tourists there, nobody else. Heavy rain suddenly fell as those things happen in passing in southern Florida. I started swimming in the downpour, which was exactly what I needed to clean my conscience from the previous night. In fact, that swim was my seed-thought behind the recent “Guilt and Atonement” post.

    Each Pond Gone: that instrumental is pretty good. I played it twice. Got me thinking of other bands that take a successful stab at an instrumental and the first one that comes to mind is Pink Floyd’s “Terminal Frost” from their 1988 album.

  112. I think you guys are just jealous of the Muslims.

    They are doing some amazing things. Murka’s still at war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, amoung about 20 other different countries. This is despite many years of assasinations, bombings and torture. There’s nothing the Muzz haven’t taken.

    …and they give it back too!

    Beheading Americans, killing priests, raping women, and setting up their own ethnostates. They don’t take any shit. Rather than criticizing them, WNs might emulate their positive example.

    I can already see how WN is going to play out – because the same thing happened in the prisons. It is the barbarian whites who commit atrocities and who inspire fear who will save the rest. They’ll hew, they’ll haw, but they’ll be happy to still be alive. Survival is what its all about.

  113. Killing an 87-year-old priest in a church is the mark of gutter-low intelligence and cowardice. Even actual “barbarians” of Native America wouldn’t tolerate them. Jealousy is what spurs such things, bubba

  114. Arabs are notoriously inept and cowardly in any confrontation with a competent enemy except when they are on a martyr mission. They are doing one-off 4th Gen warfare acts of hitting soft targets in Europe. This is currently effective against Europeans because the French, Swedes, and Germans are afraid not of the immigrants, but of their own police state. The problem with Muslims’ skills beginning and ending with strikes against soft targets is the risk that eventually the European states might stop protecting them, and then it’s a whole different game.

  115. “I engage in a lot of hyperbole on the internet, but this is one topic I am deadly serious about. Understand that for the rest of your life you will be witnessing the barbaric lunacy of jihad and its attendant atrocities. This is a problem that is not going away. This is the story of our time. “

    yeah, I’d admit I don’t understand the nuances of religious doctrine and practice; maybe you’re right, as terrifying as your scenario is. But maybe in the past such violent conviction and doctrine was undoable because of technological limits or some other practical cause. But now it’s doable —— and they be doin’ it!

    Even nowadays, it’s sorta scaryhow much the populance is getting used to these violent massacres; when you see a flag at half mast these days, you can pick and choose in determining what incident it is commemorating.

  116. “I often wonder if my enthusiasm for ’70s-’80s punk, post-punk, and new wave bands played a part in my later racial and cultural attitudes.”

    Much pop theory has it that punk, wave and other more serial pop forms —– ‘serial’ in that the composition is specifically non-bluesy or non-‘Ameican songbook’-like in its scales and measures ——- exists to sate a white music urge that prefers to not appropriate blues and jazz forms (which much u.s. pop certainly did, though invariably someone at onestdv or gl piggy would weakly argue otherwise).

    If you try to define punk and new wave, i think the most consistent and core element is it’s non-blues/non-black base. Most Americans like black music, respecting jazz masters like Armstong, Ellington, Basie and others. But some prefer more an unadulterated European influence, which i don’t consider to be so much a racial than aesthetic choice —— though of course they can be and often are ‘both.’

    There’s a book by a writer named Dick Hebdige called “Subcultures” that goes into this subject at length. (The one disruptive caveat to this theme, however, is the role that reggae and other Caribbean music forms played on punk, ska and wave, mainly in the U.K.

  117. (those three years being the greatest in rock history 

    Bahaha! There’s no accounting for when a person was a teenager, for certain. In any event, will you be offended, or amused, when I tell you that for some reason I always thought you were Asian?

    This is currently effective against Europeans because the French, Swedes, and Germans are afraid not of the immigrants, but of their own police state.‎

    I admit to wishing that the Islamic menace really were strong and powerful on its own, because while not an Islamist, I do at least respect the Mohammedan religion as a Great and Worthy Opponent.‎ I’d love to have an enemy that I could respect, instead of the secular Marxism that we actually have.

  118. Have you ever been inside a mosque? Tell us what you see. Islam is a self-contained system of materialism and inverted morality. Muslims don’t worship God; Muslims worship Islam. I consider them less-than-human and would have no problem eradicating them.

  119. ***…the role that reggae and other Caribbean music forms played on punk, ska and wave…***

    Which is why these genres, to me, never fully emerged from the waters’ shallow end. The Caribbean I find all chocolate frosting, no underlying cake; all decorative sprinkles, no ice cream supporting them. An example (though within the parameters of Saxon language) are islander writers such as Derek Walcott. The Jewish-Russian Joseph Brodsky described him as “Homeric,” but I stoutly differ in this thinking. It’s sweet, but not only misses the mark — it at bottom fails to aim for any. I wasn’t particularly thrilled to hear of his play about Van Gogh in which he used all black actors, including Van Gogh himself.

    And the origin of jazz, which at least flirted with the depths from a distance, resides in the white Arthur Rimbaud’s poetry. Caveat: Rimbaud did eventually settle in Africa with numerous black mistresses. PA I don’t mean to turn your blog into a music discussion, but these things can sometimes elucidate one’s own budding sentiments. A “white urge that prefers not to appropriate blues and jazz forms” (well said) is partially embodied in the band ‘Beirut,’ but this urge’s fruit still haven’t ripened. Much to be seen/heard yet!

  120. Have you ever been inside a mosque?

    You made me realize that interestingly, I haven’t, except for the Haghia Sophia which doesn’t count. This despite certainly having seen many of them in Turkey, Lebanon, here in Canada, etc. I avoid them, finding them creepy.

    Arabs suck at organized warfare (or organized **anything**, for that matter).

    I keep hearing this, and I have no reason or information leading me to gainsay it, and yet – how did they do so well in the Middle Ages then?

    … and why are their women so HAWT?

    If we let in 100 immigrants from Syria maybe 25 to 40 of them will openly say that they support suicide bombings, that’s plain as day.

    This is NOT plain as day, by the way. As a matter of fact I was involved last year in screening Syrian refugees coming to Canada and I have been annoyed to no end by the misunderstandings and misinformation out there on this topic.

  121. PA, I screwed up the HTML tags, can you delete the previous?

    When it comes to Islam you gotta remember a few things:

    1. Arabs suck at organized warfare (or organized **anything**, for that matter). They are too short-sighted, lazy and untrusting.

    My father went to both Kuwait and Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm and can tell many stories about their basic military ineptitude. Half the reason that Iraq fell so easily during the 1st war is because the Iraqi forward units essentially abandoned Hussein as soon as they saw that the USA was unloading armor (that mean the USA was invading 100% – the cost is too great so it means war). The Iraqi army was full of conscripts that could care less about defending the mother country (unlike, say Russians in WW2) and Hussein knew this so he didn’t even put his loyal, best equipped units (the Republican guard) in forward positions, but the USA knew their exactly location and either trapped them in their bunkers with napalm and cruise missiles or just punched a whole elsewhere and rolled right around them on the way to Baghdad.

    And they’ve still got a serious inferiority complex regarding the West, but they’ve got a bizarre notion of ethnic pride and championhood that gives them serious cog-dis in relation to their own military and political weakness. Militant Islam becomes an outlet for that. Like Africans, if Arabs were any good at warfare or nationhood they wouldn’t have been so easy to subjugate – the current Middle East has borders that were primarily drawn up by Britain and France because Arabs couldn’t even organize enough to repel the invaders, they preferred to try to curry favor with France or Britain to get revenge on their own Arab rivals.

    2. Arabs hitting soft targets with cowardly strikes is hardly laudable, it just takes advantage of Western altruism and our stupid belief that people who come to our shores have the desire (or capability) to behave like us.

    3. Arabs don’t even get along with each other politically – every Middle Eastern country has very deep divisions and is full of armed factions that are all too happy to kill each other. The Sunni-Shiite rivalry is just the tip of the iceberg – even Hamas and Hezbollah don’t get along, for pete’s sake. Thus, the only times of peace you see in Arab countries is when they’re ruled by Iron Fist dictatorships like Hussein, Qaddafi or Mubarak, who favor their own ethnic or political group quite heavily and repress the others.

    4. Although we are seeing many terrorist incidents in France and Germany lately these types of attacks are quite commonplace in the Middle East from Tunisia to Turkey to Somalia. They’re just not reported on widely in the West because its dog-bites-man.

    5. Within Islam you also have a very strong strain of Arabs wallowing in the suckitude of their own countries, and envious of the West and its prosperity. There a constant game of one-upsmanship going on where Muslims are constantly trying to prove that they are more pious the next man, and this morphs into a game of who can despise the West more.

    6. It surely doesn’t help that our foreign policy has been so overwhelmingly pro-Israel.

    7. Traditionally, the USA gets much brighter Muslim immigrants that France and Germany. I don’t agree that we need to stop or curtail Muslim immigration – at least, we don’t need to phrase it that way. All that needs be said is that we are shutting off immigration from dangerous countries – i.e. all of the usual suspects – the USA already has a restricted parties list whereby there’s all kinds of enhanced sanctions on travel and trade with countries that birth a large number of terrorists.

    If we let in 100 immigrants from Syria maybe 25 to 40 of them will openly say that they support suicide bombings, that’s plain as day. But as it stands now INS can’t even look at the social media postings by those seeking to immigrate to the USA – those San Bernadino shooters had openly posted all kinds of content supporting ISIS even before their interview with INS, but were still let into the country. But don’t let a white dude posting something about the KKK on social media – he will be fired and never have a regular corporate office job again.

  122. how did they do so well in the Middle Ages then?

    They did well before the rise of the modern nation which is a European concept – a nation is far stronger than a tribal-oriented region like the Arab Middle East.

    For instance, have you ever heard of the Barbary States? As late as 1815 these small but effective Sheikdoms still terrorized European and American shipping in the Mediterranean, even taking slaves up to the millions when they boarded ships or raided Italian, French or Spanish towns (even reaching the UK and Ireland). This is why many Italian coastal towns are built on hills.

    Well, once the European powers invested in better technology and their R&D yielded ironclad gunships and cannons with longer range it was over. The Barbary States (such as Tripoli) were bombed into submission, and later colonized by France (Algeria) and Italy (Tunisia).

    And the Ottoman Turks were able to menace European even as late as 1671, when they launched their last siege of Vienna. However, after that European technological and political advances started to yield states of great power.

    This is NOT plain as day, by the way. As a matter of fact I was involved last year in screening Syrian refugees coming to Canada and I have been annoyed to no end by the misunderstandings and misinformation out there on this topic.

    I would expect that FOB refugees would tell INS what they want to hear at the point of entry but it is plain as day that terrorists in the West are influenced by militant preachers in local mosques, and the neighborhood not only hears these anti-Western sermons at the Mosque but support the efforts with money, pats on the back and the tacit approval of quiet acquiescence. Of course, it’s the lower- and middling-IQ loser males with the least to lose who typically go out and execute the attacks, but always with the direct help of wives, sisters, mothers. There’s certain NO-GO neighborhoods in Brussels where above 50% of the Muslim residents will gladly and openly proclaim support for suicide bombings and attacks.

  123. Any accomplishments early Islam may have had were almost entirely due to the Byzantines.

    This is something the Muslims won’t admit, of course. Even Westerners prefer to ignore the Byzantines.

  124. PA ~ The pool at the Santa Barbara Biltmore is impressive. (The beach below it, not so much). There’s an elevated deck that you can see in some of the photos. That’s where we hung out, ordering drinks, sunbathing, chatting with people. There are few things that I enjoy doing more than swimming. There’s just something about being in the water. My parents first put me in the pool when I was a baby. Years of swimming lessons, surfing, snorkeling, diving, and messing around in lakes and swamps followed. Maybe the resort pools you mention, with the tropical design and oasis style, speak to something ancient in us, much like Sailer has theorized that golf course design mimics the vistas our ancient ancestors must have seen when out hunting. Have you been to Palm Springs? Tons of gorgeous resort pools there. Also, Mexico. For gorgeous poolside photos, check out the book Poolside With Slim Aarons by the late photographer Slim Aarons, who spent decades photographing members of the jet-set crowd, playboys, celebrities, and aristocrats, Those were the days.

  125. Even nowadays, it’s sorta scaryhow much the populance is getting used to these violent massacres;

    This is a direct result of our leaders scrambling to paper over their failures, because it is an embarrassing failure of multiculturalism they don’t want us to notice. That is the reason for the rape of cologne was censored by the German government. That is why after San Bernadino, the Obama administration’s narrative was workplace violence and guns.

    If you want to witness how Orwellian this administration has become on this topic, just listen to Obama’s speech after Orlando… now ask yourself, if the terrorist instead of using guns, had used pressure cooker bombs, or a semi truck, nothing in Obama’s speech would have made sense.

    Witness Loretta Lynch’s ham-handed attempt to scrub references to Islam or ISIS from Mateen’s 911 call, and then in a subsequent new conference, actually stated “we may never know the killer’s true motive.” Funny, Obama seemed to have no problem sussing out the “true motive” of Dylan Roof.

    If you want to see how deep this goes, consider the fact that in 2011 Obama administration ordered a scrubbing of references to “jihad” or “ haria” and other supposedly offensive terms from CIA and FBI training materials. Instead, non-specific terms such as “Terror” or “extremism” is to be used.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/apr/25/obamas-cleansing-of-islamic-terms-suppresses-commo/

    And if you want to see just how far down the politically correct rabbit hole we are sinking on this topic check out the “Countering Violent Extremism” bill. If you think the Orwellian title of the bill is galling, then you should see the contents.

  126. And they’ve still got a serious inferiority complex regarding the West, but they’ve got a bizarre notion of ethnic pride and championhood that gives them serious cog-dis in relation to their own military and political weakness. Militant Islam becomes an outlet for that.

    The Islamic golden age is largely fictional promoted by a politically correct pseudo history promoted by Islamic apologetics. Yes it is true that a millennia ago the Muslim world attained a higher level of civilization than the mideval christian west but it was the result of copying classical Greek, Roman, Persian and Indian texts from territories they conquered. Preserving the work of aristotle always appears at the top of the list of so called achievements during this era. In terms of science, there were Muslims making advances in optics, but they weren’t building telescopes and understand that cosmos. They were these advances it to design religious calendars and to more accurately pinpoint the direction of Mecca.

    There are single zip codes in NY and Massachusetts that have produced more of enduring value scientifically, ethically, politically than the entire Muslim world has produced in a thousand years. The country of Spain translates more of the world’s literature and learning into Spanish each year than the entire Arab world has translated into Arabic since the 9th century. The Arab world is 5% of the worlds population, but they produce only 1% of the world’s books, and most of them are religious. Kuwait is a small wealthy country that spends a lot of money on education and it is far below the world average in math and science.

    If you think these claims are inaccurate, or they contain a shred of bigotry, you are lying to yourself. It is not historically inaccurate nor is it a sign of bigotry to observe that most of human progress arose in the West. Science is a western breakthrough, as is liberal democracy, rule of law, freedom of thought, a universal conception of human rights, separation of church and state. When other countries adopt these values, they have flourished.

    This disparity has nothing to do with Muslims being mistreated by the West. The Jews were nearly exterminated in the 20th century.. Muslims now outnumber Jews by 100:1. Yet in the last 50 years, which community has produced more of lasting human value scientifically, politically, artistically… ya know the good stuff.. beyond medical advances like clitorectomies, beating your wife, or forcing her to live in a bag, or killing victims of rape.

  127. Those San Bernadino shooters had openly posted all kinds of content supporting ISIS even before their interview with INS, but were still let into the country. But don’t let a white dude posting something about the KKK on social media – he will be fired and never have a regular corporate office job again.

    For some reason that I will never understand, when it comes to the topic of Islam, the dial on the liberal’s moral compass just begins spinning uncontrollably, and it suddenly becomes impossible to navigate questions of right and wrong.

    The problem is, before the Orlando massacre, an ordinary imam from Britain spoke at a Mosque IN ORLANDO, calling for murder of gays. “Death is the sentence. We know there’s nothing to be embarrassed about this, death is the sentence…We have to have that compassion for people, with homosexuals, it’s the same, out of compassion, let’s get rid of them now.”

    This occurs in ordinary, non-extremist mosques all over the place. Yet you never see liberals have the courage to protest these mosques. They would rather wet their pants over a small lunatic Christian cult like Westboro Baptist Church.

  128. “Witness Loretta Lynch’s ham-handed attempt to scrub references to Islam or ISIS from Mateen’s 911 call, and then in a subsequent new conference, actually stated “we may never know the killer’s true motive.” Funny, Obama seemed to have no problem sussing out the “true motive” of Dylan Roof.

Instead, non-specific terms such as “Terror” or “extremism” is to be used.”

    yes, what you point out is undeniable; I too was shocked by such evasive speech. I only wonder if that’s done tactically to avoid antagonizing a brazen and sizable enemy of western life and values. I mean, not cowardly evasion but perhaps a tactical intention to rally educated, pro-western muslims; sometimes it’s tactically wise to not concede, directly or indirectly, the sheer size and force of your opposition.

    As for Roof, i was a bit surprised at the lack of p.c. overkill, i.e., ‘over-vilification,’ if that’s not to jarring a term considering the crime here. I mean, there was no black rioting and i was surprised by those local community leader calls for forgiveness of Roof and to maintain communal peace, etc., blah-blah…. I’m just saying the rhetoric was contained and forward-looking.

    I think the western response to terrorism and its mealy-mouthed approach to calling a spade a spade has something to do with its anxiety in just how to deal with this 21st-century threat; i.e.,how to contain this uniquely unwieldy problem in the very ways you point out in your above comments.

  129. For fuck’s sake. Where did the innocence of a fist fight go? Mass tech has temporarily outpaced mass culture, so that brawling like a man seems almost banal. Brawl like a man and walk like a warrior in the face of the conscious wheel and fluorescent fungus.

  130. Because blacks have so many of their own dysfunctional people someone like Dylan Roof probably makes them feel a little better.

  131. The Islamic golden age is largely fictional promoted by a politically correct pseudo history promoted by Islamic apologetics. Yes it is true that a millennia ago the Muslim world attained a higher level of civilization than the mideval christian west but it was the result of copying classical Greek, Roman, Persian and Indian texts from territories they conquered

    For its time period and population level the Islamic “Golden age” was extremely impressive. (750 to around 1250 AD, until the Mongols smashed Baghdad, rolling the caliph into a carpet and trampling him). Many Western European leaders recording sending envoys to the Caliphs during this period, even Charlemagne records being shocked to receive back honorary gifts with advanced mechanics like clocks and toys. Islamic Scholars during that time gave us much of what we know about Platonic and Aristotelian thinking, and they didn’t just ape or copy it, they both translated and extended classical thinking.

    But none of this really means that Muslims are capable of organization, and political/economic stability at the level of a modern nation. They’re still tribal in their pysche and quite short-minded and untrusting in their thinking. As Sailer has quoted, a huge portion of the Islamic World still marries 1st or 2nd cousin partly because they don’t want the dowry money to be shared outside the family. (Sailer has quoted that cousin marriage is as high as 40% of marriages in rural areas in the Middle East/South Asia.)

  132. Because blacks have so many of their own dysfunctional people someone like Dylan Roof probably makes them feel a little better.

    In the early days of the Internet, black people used to comment on new crime articles and say stuff like “please don’t let this suspect be black” before info was released on the perp. Thanks to Obama I don’t think they have that sentiment much anymore.

  133. Islamic “Golden age” turned out many polymaths and indeed extended classical thought. Even mathematicians were often involved in medicine. Things like that are nice, but the pre-Socratics onward dominate the dominant/significant chronicle because they’re more captivating as personalities if for no better reason. Their characters and intellects fed off each other remarkably. No shame in that

  134. US Muslim advocacy groups organize march for Muslims who oppose ISIS, proclaim that 100,000 would be there on the National Mall:

    But only a few dozen actually showed up. It was such a dismal turnout that it’s actually a smaller number than the 200+ Americans who’ve attempted (successfully or not) to leave the country to fight for ISIS.

    Note** – there’s at least 3 million Muslims in the USA today.

  135. I dunno, Trickin. I think that article is pretty standard NYT fare. It’s the same tune they’ve always been singing about how crime and violence are so unpredictable and inscrutable, since “crime is everywhere.”

    Hence, the only solution is to ban guns.

  136. Yeah i reread it. The summation is predictable. I just thought it interesting that nytimednytimes.com advanced a nature vs nurture theory that had socio-racial-cultural implications.

  137. But only a few dozen actually showed up. It was such a dismal turnout that it’s actually a smaller number than the 200+ Americans who’ve attempted (successfully or not) to leave the country to fight for ISIS.

    And much smaller than the 500 who turned out to the Copenhagen terrorist’s funeral:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/feb/20/copenhagen-shooting-funeral-gunman

    It’s a dirty little secret that the press doesn’t cover too much, how many Muslims routinely show up at these terrorist funerals.

  138. I think the western response to terrorism and its mealy-mouthed approach to calling a spade a spade has something to do with its anxiety in just how to deal with this 21st-century threat; i.e.,how to contain this uniquely unwieldy problem in the very ways you point out in your above comments.

    So the solution is to what? Incessantly lie, or otherwise obfuscate or apologize for Islam?

    Khizr Khan recently came on the news and repeated the “Terrorism has nothing to do with Islam!” canard that Obama repeats incessantly. He said:

    I wish he would have, somebody would have put something in his head that these are terrorists, these are criminals, these folks have nothing to do with Islam.

    And the Spanish Inquisition had nothing to do with Catholicism. And Mormons don’t actually believe in polygamy. I mean, just look at Mitt Romney! Just one wife! Zionism and the creation of Israel has nothing to with Judaism and their promised land. That is just one massive distortion of Judaism right there. While we’re at it, the Holocaust had nothing to do with Nazism. It was a perversion of Nazism.

    The fact is that the sanctity of Jihad and the hatred of the infidel, is arguably a central doctrine of the religion and comes not from a distortion of their faith, but is derived from an all too literal exegesis of the Quarn, the Hadiths, and the Sira.

    And if you don’t believe me, ask ISIS! They will TELL you exactly why they do what they do!

    The latest issue of ISIS’s magazine Dabiq (yes they have an official magazine) makes for some interesting reading. Here’s some choice quotes from the article “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You”

    Numero uno on their six point bulleted list is:

    1. We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers; you reject the oneness of Allah – whether you realize it or not – by making partners for Him in worship, you blaspheme against Him, claiming that He has a son, you fabricate lies against His prophets and messengers, and you indulge in all manner of devilish practices. It is for this reason that we were commanded to openly declare our hatred for you and our enmity towards you.

    But… but… no silly Islamist, you really hate us because of Western Imperialism! and . . . Brown Bodies! Stop fucking up the narrative!

    Shortly following the blessed attack on a sodomite, Crusader nightclub by the mujahid Omar Mateen, American politicians were quick to jump into the spotlight and denounce the shooting, declaring it a hate crime, an act of terrorism, and an act of senseless violence. A hate crime? Yes. Muslims undoubtedly hate liberalist sodomites, as does anyone else with any shred of their fitrah (inborn human nature) still intact. An act of terrorism? Most definitely. Muslims have been commanded to terrorize the disbelieving enemies of Allah. But an act of senseless violence? One would think that the average Westerner, by now, would have abandoned the tired claim that the actions of the mujahidin – who have repeatedly stated their goals, intentions, and motivations – don’t make sense.

    ….

    The politicians will say it regardless of how much it stands in opposition to facts and common sense just to garner as many votes as they can for the next election cycle. The analysts and journalists will say it in order to keep themselves from becoming a target for saying something that the masses deem to be “politically incorrect.” The apostate “imams” in the West will adhere to the same tired cliché in order to avoid a backlash from the disbelieving societies in which they’ve chosen to reside. The point is, people know that it’s foolish, but they keep repeating it regardless because they’re afraid of the consequences of deviating from the script. There are exceptions among the disbelievers, no doubt, people who will unabashedly declare that jihad and the laws of the Shari’ah – as well as everything else deemed taboo by the Islam-is-a-peaceful-religion crowd – are in fact completely Islamic, but they tend to be people with far less credibility who are painted as a social fringe, so their voices are dismissed and a large segment of the ignorant masses continues believing the false narrative. As such, it becomes important for us to clarify to the West in unequivocal terms – yet again – why we hate you and why we fight you.

    Straight from the horses mouth. So why keep lying about this reality?

    Those who think Obama is a crypto-Muslim have it wrong, it’s worse than that. If Obama was a Muslim he might be inclined to be more truthful. The fact is Obama is a rootless cosmopolitan, with the all wacky delusions about humanity that come with that orientation, combined with the usual haughtiness of this class of people. See to the Obamabots, if you disagree with the prescribed narrative, you are not only wrong, you are a bigot or an Islamophobe.

  139. I just want some action, period, i’m so bored. I cannot conceive of a more uninspired combo than HRC & Kaine. Soooo, 1992

    I think Bubba would agree!

  140. “So the solution is to what? Incessantly lie, or otherwise obfuscate or apologize for Islam?”

    I don’t know. I was implying that the west may be feeling ‘damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don’t about the situation and perhaps that is what is behind their seeming weak and inactive response. I mean, going full-blown attack on muslims could easily create many more innocent western victims. And the diplomatic corrollary to such radical western action, widely and indiscriminately lambasting Islam doctrine itself may ignite the same in terms of a physical reaction.

    I guess the question comes down to: does the west feel it’s ready to honestly face and prepare to conquer the possible true depth of what they might call the radical islamist menace. Posturing is a big part of international confrontation and detente; I’m saying that the seeming disparity between the realpolitik threat and the west’s diplomatic interpretation of the threat may be indicative of the dilemma the west is facing.

    Or maybe the question is; how do you deal with systemic large-scale population resentment that, through doctrine, can be transfigured into global murderous mayhem? Analyzing all the intricate and detailed tragic possibilities of such a circumstance is a sobering fucking task; one that could instantly amplify the already hand-tied western response.

    Just how does one deal with an enemy that doesn’t value or try to preserve its own survival?
