What are we to make of events in Charlottesville? What lessons can be learned? Most of what I am about to say is dispassionate common sense. If you get triggered by my words, you probably have a fatal disease.
There seem to be two post-Charlottesville camps at the moment, the blackpilled and the whitepilled. I stand categroically behind the ever-changing grey pill, the pill that doesn’t coddle you in sweet despair or snuggle you in saccharine optimism, but remains open to feedback loops and reality testing.
First of all, things went well to an extent—a lot of our narratives were strongly confirmed—but they also went badly—the media had plenty of shit to throw in the air to obscure our narratives. To quote Dickens, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
The main thing to deal with is the “car accident” that occurred, in which a young man mowed down some Leftists and antifa. My understanding from various sources is that he was a confused, half-Jewish, single-parent kid who was at least interested in Alt-Right ideas, and that the accident occurred only after his car was attacked by leftists and literally struck by at least a flagpole—an act of panic in other words, caused by antifa themselves and the police-sanctioned anarchy.
But, really, who he was and what he thought is a red herring. Imagine if a fully paid-up member of the Alt-Right did in fact commit a terrorist atrocity. Such an event is not impossible. The point that has to be understood here is that there is bound to be violence on both sides in the future. Whenever there is strong social polarization and heightened tensions, certain mental types, certain outliers on the spectrum of mental stability on both sides are going to be triggered into acts of violence. When that happens, the opposition will try to use it to discredit you, whichever side you are on.
But a movement cannot be held hostage to rogue acts by people who claim to identify or sympathize with it. What is important here is the posture of the movement itself. Does it actually encourage such acts of violence or not? Does it have a culture of violence?
|Actual Leftist attack on police. Imagine the shitstorm if we did this.|
At the moment it seems clear that the Left has an enormous lead in encouraging violence, celebrating it, and normalizing it. The Alt-Right and other nationalists by contrast have steadfastly promoted violence only in self-defence. But this is the moral position, the strong position, and the antifragile position.
Yes, the Left has some unfair advantages in a compliant and deceitful mass media, but that mass media is also in free fall. We have ways and memes of getting the truth out, so let that truth be a good one.
Now my next point. There has been much comment about the politicization of the police and the city and state authorities in this case. Yes, the Unite the Right demonstrators were set up—kettled and hemmed in by police and then dispersed towards violent antifa who were given “space to destroy,” piss bomb, mace, and strike.
This was a Leftist town in a Leftist controlled state with a Leftist controlled police force. This was basically Berkeley on the East Coast. In other words such malicious and negligent behaviour by the police is to be expected in cases like this. Our guys going into a situation like that should at least all have had helmets of some sort and mace-resistant eye goggles.
On the plus side the violence our people suffered could be a great opportunity for the Alt-Right legal team. There are plenty of grounds to sue various parties here. But most importantly we have to work hard on defensive safety for our most precious resource—committed and good people.
Some are saying we should avoid blue towns in blue states altogether, but, as with Charlottesville, these are the very towns that are attacking our history and heritage with the most vehemence. Red towns in red states are not yet doing this, so towns like Charlottesville are ideal opportunities to make our points about the Great Erasure.
The next point I want to address is the NQ or the Nazi Question, people with swastikas who chant things like “Gas the K****s,” etc. There were a few of them on display, unfortunately. And we all know how much the media loves them.
Part of being in the Alt-Right is being open to the JQ, a legitimate area of concern, with various viewpoints, about group interests that are different and possibly inimical to the interests of the greater White European community. I am not criticising the need to calmly and rationally discuss the JQ. But out-and-out Nazi trolling is a different thing, and becomes increasingly stupid the further you move away from anonymous internet message boards.
Also, according to one of the many memos I got, the Alt-Right is supposed to be about “positive identity”—love of our own people, etc., rather than specific hatred of other groups. That is the official position, and although it might sound a little “colonize the stars” visionary, it is once again the moral position, the strong position, and the antifragile position.
So, how does Daily Strormer type Nazi trolling in meatspace fit in with that? The answer is extremely badly, because it simply gives the media exactly what they need to isolate the movement from its growth market—i.e. people who are not yet in the movement, while also making it easier to attack people in the movement. People are literally going to lose their jobs because their pictures were taken at an event that has been successfully branded, with the help of a few idiots and ADL plants, as “Neo-Nazi, White Supremacist.” See how that effects turn-out next time.
Of course, having a few mad “Nazis” on our side would be great in a shooting war, but we are still far from that point, and anyway most of the so-called Nazi types I am talking about are the opposite of that—out-of-shape internet freaks who are better at shooting over anime porn than shooting actual rifles.
These meatspace events are undertaken for a wide variety of reasons, but I think the main one is to raise the profile of the movement and to show how unfairly Whites are treated in order to garner growing support and sympathy. Triggering might be part of that, but this also has to be done within—or at least with reference to—what I call the “moral architecture,” i.e. the fixed moral norms of the existing society and culture. I am not saying we should accept those moral norms, but that we have to at least be aware of them as we push our message to a wider audience. At least if winning is important.
Also, you may have noticed just how easy it is to trigger the Left nowadays. Swastikas and sieg-heiling is overkill and all kinds of shitty blowback in one package addressed to a total loser. At this stage, anyone flying swastikas or even Klan stuff is simply a moron or an ADL plant.
So, we have to take the Nazi crap out into the woods and shoot it in the back of the head. It’s what Hitler would have done. Any future event of this kind must control optics with an iron fist or even a steel-toed jackboot. It is obvious that efforts are already being made in this direction, so why ruin it by being half-baked? Nationalist marches in Europe manage to do this all the time, and with a lot more people. Learn from them.
The theme of everything that I have said is this: While pressing our message, we need to do all in our power to make Alt-Right White Nationalism antifragile. That is the key word.
That means improving the movement’s physical, financial, and moral defences. As with any underdog who finally triumphs, we have to be stronger, smarter, more moral, and more driven than our opponents, and all these virtues need to lock together to support one another in a phalanx of victory.
