PODCAST 56: 2017 - THE EMPIRE (AND DEEP STATE) STRIKES BACK


Andy Nowicki and Colin Liddell take a break from the festive season to take a look back at 2017, a remarkable year in which the Establishment, sensing its weakening powers and ultimate demise, decided to lash out at the Alt-Right with doxxings and deplatformings that did little to hinder us but which greatly revealed its own growing unease.


MILO - LIVE IN MELBOURNE: A REPORT FOR ALTERNATIVE RIGHT


The date was December 4th, 2017. Milo Yiannopoulis rode into my home town of Melbourne on his Sedan chair to bring a little mainstream Alt Right mischief Down Under to the plebs and the normies. As one of Melbourne's top "Alt Righters" and head of the Alt Right field office in the Antipodies, naturally I had to pop along to see this wonderful circus.

ARE WE RIGHT? (PART III)

 This is the concluding part of a three-part article. Go to Part I. Go to Part II.


It is time to deliver on the promise of this essay – which is, of course, an answer to the great question contained in its title. Can our movement honestly lay claim to the Rightist tradition of the West, which in turn leads back to the roots of our civilisation? Or do we represent a shallow, transitory and chimerical reaction of older Leftist ideas, like nationalism, against newer ones like multiculturalism?

In short, can the Alt-Right really call itself the True Right?

VANGUARD PODCAST (8): THE OLD TIME RELIGION


The eighth of the Vanguard Podcasts, featuring the original "triumvirate" of Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell, discusses American football, blogging vs. podcasting, Japanese politics, "reactionary conservatism," and America's "Old-Time Religion."

The seventh of the Vanguard Podcasts, featuring the original "triumvirate" of Richard Spencer, Andy Nowicki, and Colin Liddell, discusses "Gangnam Style," Korea’s surprising pop culture sensation, and how it might prophesy a post-PC future, before turning to Steven Spielberg’s latest film, Lincoln, and how it relates to the "liberal destiny" of America.

"ABOUT THE AUTHOR"

The following passage is taken from Andy Nowicki's collection of essays, Ruminations of a Low-Status Male, Volume 1, now available (along with Volume 2) for a low low price from Kindle and in paperback.



I am not a successful man.

I don’t say this because I’m eagerly soliciting assurances to the contrary. I’m not courting your flattery. I’m merely reflecting upon an observable fact.

As always, refuge can be found in semantics. Yes, the question of what constitutes “success” is of course contingent upon how one defines the term. And yes, there are less successful men in the world than me. But I don’t claim to be below all others; I merely, and quite rightly, declare myself to fall well short of the “success” bar.

MERRY LOW-STATUS X-MAS!


Andy Nowicki—author of Ruminations of a Low-Status Male, Volume 1: Status-Lust and Self-Loathing and Ruminations of a Low-Status Male, Volume 2: Celibacy and Hypergamy, as well as the as-yet unfinished Ruminations of Low-Status Male, Volume 3—shares some candid thoughts about how nature and culture combine to humiliate the low-status male (LSM)...and what the LSM can do on his own behalf to counteract this double-fisted effect.

IS JOBBIK NOW A LEFTIST PARTY?

Jobbik: ideologically cross-eyed since at least 2013.

Jobbik, the Hungarian political party that made it's name by being strongly anti-Jewish and anti-Gypsy, is now looking increasingly like a Leftist party, as news leaked that actual Leftists are thinking of allying with the party in order to defeat Prime Minister Viktor Orban's Right-wing Fidesz party at next year's general election.

MULTICULTURALISM: THE SEPARATION OF NATION AND STATE


by Ryan Andrews 
A white pill from the Great White North: There is a worthwhile new activist group up in Canada that seems to have its act together called Students for Western Civilisation. Their leader, George Hutcheson, has posted a few videos/podcasts offering excellent analyses spelling out the logical implications of multiculturalist policy. The imposition of multiculturalism on an existing nation is presented as an additive process, but Hutcheson points out that it is also a necessarily subtractive process. The pre-existing nation (i.e. us) must be, to a greater or lesser extent, subtracted from the culture. It’s good stuff. (And the intro reminds me of the old Vanguard podcasts.)

HEY THERE, JUDGY GIRL


“Georgy Girl,” a 1967 hit from Australia’s legendary folk act The Seekers, is generally thought of as an innocuous little number, complete with delicately pretty harmonies and even a cute little “whistling solo.” 

Truth be told, however, a toxic heart lurks beneath all the seeming sweetness and light.

The subject of the song is a young woman named Georgy, who seems quite satisfied with her life. Indeed, the demeanor she displays is spirited, even “fancy-free.”  However, the “judgy” female narrator of “Georgy Girl” thinks she knows Georgy better, and suspects that all is not well behind the girl’s happy-seeming exterior.

'THE LAST JEDI' AND THE DISNEY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX


Andy Nowicki is astonished and dismayed by the 93% "fresh" rating that "The Last Jedi" has received from film critics, as collated on the Rotten Tomatoes site.

A TALE OF TWO COALITIONS



Meet Angela. She is a fusty, cantankerous, lonely old woman who smells vaguely of rotting cabbage. She has trouble making friends  because she thinks everybody hates her, while hating people who want to make friends with her. The only thing she loves are her Third World pets, but of course they despise her the most.

RAMSHACKLE US-BACKED AFGHAN GOVERNMENT ON BRINK OF COLLAPSE

"Please, kind Western NGOs, teach us more about the joys of feminism."


The US war in Afghanistan (cost $2.4 trillion) continues to go badly. After revelations that the Taliban are actually winning on the ground and news that Trump is going to "win hearts and minds" by ordering more unrestricted bombing, comes the news that the US-backed government is basically falling apart.

AL JOURGENSEN SUPPORTS ANTIFA, AND HE HAS UGLY DREADLOCKS


My friend Stephen Sigl and I decided that the once respectable Ministry is now dead to us after seeing the video for their (well, his) new song, “Antifa.”

I think, if you’ve read this blog before, you’re aware of what Antifa is, and you’d thus be against it. But, just as a reminder, Antifa is the far left group of so called “activists,” who claim that they’re fighting “fascism” by using coercive tactics, such as violently attacking people, starting riots, and just being an overall public nuisance, in the name of spreading “tolerance.”

ONLY THE DISSIDENT-RIGHT CAN SAVE THE JEWS



Trump's recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is first of all an act of diplomatic 2D checkers (as opposed to 4D chess) that greatly undermines America's position in the Middle East. But it also raises the specific question of how Israel morally justifies its existence, and the general question of how moral power flows and shapes political power in the World (and vice versa).

This is not as simple as it sounds when you are effectively a post-colonial colonial state as Israel is, having been born in 1948 in the teeth of the great wave of decolonisation that swept the World for the next 30 years.

THE COSIEST OF CHRISTMASES WITH MILLENNIAL WOES


Andy Nowicki and Colin Liddell join Millennial Woes on the now legendary Millenniyule Hangouts to talk about the Alt-Right's "ghosts of Christmas past" and look ahead to the bright and shining future of our glorious and increasingly cosy movement.

THE ABOLITION OF CHRISTMAS


A concerted effort is currently being made by some cultural dissidents to expose the wide-ranging campaign undertaken by our betters to expunge all aspects of Christ from the holiday of Christmas, and what's more, to eradicate all aspects of Christmas from the gift-exchanging season of late December. In fact, this "war on Christmas" has been ranging for decades, epitomized in the numerous instances of newly renamed "holiday trees," corporate-mandated salutations of "happy holidays" or "season's greetings" instead of "merry Christmas," and forced removals of manger scenes from public places.

It is quite true, as Samuel Francis once pointed out, that the campaign against Christmas is a mere skirmish in the more widespread war against the West. Christmas is, after all, a Christian holy day, and Christianity is the spiritual foundation upon which Western civilization was built; hostility toward unabashed celebration of the birth of Christ does indeed spring from a hatred of all things Occidental. But it is a bit more complicated, and more bizarrely perverse, than that. For the war against the West is largely being waged by ... Westerners.

NORDIC RESISTANCE MOVEMENT BANNED IN FINLAND

A moment to consider the best direction to march in.

by Alt-Right News

The Nordic Resistance Movement, which advocates for national socialism in Scandinavia, has been banned in Finland after a Finnish court ruled on Thursday (7th) that the group advocates violence and spreads hatred.
“In addition to offending and hateful expressions... the association urges its supporters to use violence and harassment against alleged enemies,” the Finnish court said.
The ban stemmed from a violent incident that occurred in September 2016, when Nordic Resistance Movement member Jesse Torniainen kicked a passerby who had spat on the ground in front of the group’s rally.

"MY ANGEL IS A CENTERFOLD!!"



“Centerfold,” a Billboard number-one 1983 hit by J. Geils Band, is a unique pop anthem in which the speaker mourns the marring of a girl’s purity and the obliteration of her innocence. It is the only “radio song” in recent history—of which I am aware, at least—in which such thematic ground is covered. This is surprising, given the undeniable ubiquity of the circumstance of wrecked virtue in our wretched and degraded age.

Why are there not more songs like “Centerfold”? 

Perhaps it is believed to be insufferably old-fashioned to bemoan such a turn of events. Perhaps, that is, having the gall to  express sadness over a virgin transforming into a whore is now inevitably construed as a deplorable instance of retrograde “slut shaming,” and is thus avoided by all non-J. Geils-affiliated recording artists.

SHORTPOD (13): THE THOTTENING OF THE ALT-RIGHT


In his latest "Shortpod," Colin Liddell responds to the here-today-gone-tomorrow "tradthot" controversy, and expounds on why movement drama in the Alt-Right is inevitable and is probably a good thing. He also reminds us that micromanaging the movement is not an option...luckily.

A REPORT FROM QUEBEC'S FRONT LINES



The Reds had launched a challenge:
Citizens who refuse to accept the uncontrolled flow of mass immigration imposed by the system would not be able to express themselves openly in the streets of Quebec City on November 25th.
The Far Left would physically "defend" governmental policies against the rising tide of popular discontent—a superficially surprising position as the antifas usually claim to be against the government.

STRENGTH IS THE RELATIVE AVOIDANCE OF DIVERSITY



Every now and then the blue check marks on Twitter pipe up with the mindless mantra that “Diversity is our Strength.”

Erm…yes and no.

BREAKING THE LIBERAL SHELL

Previously published at our back-up site on September 17th.


Contrary to popular belief, the natural world provides several parallels for the behaviour of decadent humans. One of the most dramatic of these is found in the behaviour of a caterpillar after being stung by a parasitoid wasp, which injects its larvae directly into the caterpillar’s body. As the wasp larvae feed on its insides and grow to maturity, the parasitised caterpillar goes on munching away on vegetation as if nothing had happened — until the larvae finally chew their way out of its body. Whereupon the caterpillar spins a protective coccoon around them and ferociously defends them from predators as if they were its own young, until the wasps are ready to fly away and the exhausted caterpillar helpfully starves to death.


ANARCHO-TYRANNY: ROOSH BANNED FROM CUCK ISLAND

The Sovietization of the United Kingdom continues with the news that "self-styled" pick up artist and manosphere mainstay Roosh V has been added to the long list of totally harmless people banned from the UK for merely expressing interesting opinions. Meanwhile actual dangerous Muslim radicals and extremists continue to be allowed free entry.

THE IDIOCY OF "LAUREN-GATE"


Considering the supremely silly "Lauren-gate" affair, Andy Nowicki casts a withering glance at the pathetic white knight simps in one corner before regarding the ridiculous "white sharia" spergs in the other corner, then asks, "Why not neither?"

TRUMP'S RECOGNITION OF JERUSALEM AS CAPITAL UNDERMINES US POSITION IN MIDDLE EAST


Days after the Supreme Court upheld Donald Trump's "Muslim Ban," in a further blow for Muslims, the US President has finally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

This is a game-changer in the Middle East, as the US has long held off recognizing Jerusalem as the capital in order to maintain the thin pretense that it is an "honest broker" between the Israelis and the Arabs. Of course, it is nothing of the sort, being heavily biased towards Israel's interests, due to the massive amount of Jewish political donations in the US political system, as well as Jewish control and influence of the media. An additional reason is the philo-Semitism of many American Christian fundamentalists.

HEAVEN FORBID PEACE SHOULD BREAK OUT BETWEEN THE U.S. AND NORTH KOREA!


As long as the US Empire can be funded and maintained on the backs of its taxpaying public, the chance of a de-escalation of tensions not only on the Korean peninsula, but throughout the world are practically nil. And, as long as the nation’s current interventionist ideology holds sway, it will only be through a financial meltdown that the US’s role as global policeman will come to a much-needed end. The most recent example of the world’s biggest bully escalating matters is its on-again, off-again badgering of North Korea.

SPEAKING ART TO POWER



A while ago, I wrote an article entitled “Alt Right Art,” a sort of mini-manifesto for dissident aesthetic voices who find their scope impaired by the machinations and ministrations of a dully ultra-conformist and punitively small-minded age, an age wherein the once-revolutionary Left has seized hold of nearly all established citadels of thought, its entrenched cultural commissars ruthlessly enforcing their ever more pernicious institutional “innovations” with monotonous fervor and plodding regularity, and in so doing, rendering adherence to embattled traditional mores the only possible means of rebellion, excitement, redemption, and relief.

I don’t retract a word from the text of that earlier piece, as I honestly don’t think it contains a speck of untruth. However, I now discern that, apt though “Alt Right Art” is in in diagnosing what is needful, it nevertheless lacks a sense of completion. Put simply, there is more that must be said on the subject.

ANTHONY D. SMITH: CULTURIST HERO


Anthony D. Smith (1939-2016) is a culturist hero.  Alongside, Samuel P. Huntington  (1927 – 2008), Smith inspired me as I wrote ‘Culturism,’ in 2006.  Many will recognize Harvard’s Huntington for his having created the ‘Clash of Civilizations’ model. But, though he taught at the London School of Economics, very few know about or appreciate Smith’s ‘ethno-symbolism’ model of nationalism.

ARE WE RIGHT? (PART II)


This is the second part of a three-part article. Go to Part I.

We have explored the question of how to clearly define ‘the Right’, and found that the macro-historical pattern identified by Bertrand de Jouvenel provides us with the best rule of thumb. In de Jouvenel’s narrative, Power (the governing authority) is shown to expand itself by allying with the lowest classes of people so as to subvert the social order, which is defended by traditional authorities such as the aristocracy. If the governing authority wins this struggle, the outcome is a levelled or inverted social landscape dominated by an unconstrained Power; if the aristocrats win it, they establish a strong social order overseen by a constrained Power, whose legitimacy depends on its role as a guardian and symbol of this order.

THE ALT-RIGHT AMONG OTHER RIGHTS

This is the text of a lecture Keith Preston delivered to the H.L. Mencken Club on November 4, 2017.



Speaking about the intricacies of different ideological tendencies can often be a bit tedious, and certainly a topic like the Alt-Right can get very complicated because there are so many currents that feed into the Alt-Right. I know that when I spoke here last year I was speaking on the right-wing anarchist tradition, which is a highly esoteric tradition, and one that is often very obscure with many undercurrents. The Alt-Right is similar in the sense of having many sub-tendencies that are fairly obscure in their own way, although some of these have become more familiar now that the Alt-Right has grown in fame, or infamy, in the eyes of its opponents. Some of the speakers we have heard at this conference so far have helped to clarify some of the potential definitions of what the Alt-Right actually is, but given the subject of my presentation I thought I might break it down a bit further, and clarify a few major distinctions.

WHERE THE RIGHT WENT WRONG



Ever since the shuttening of Radix, I have intended to re-run this essay at some point. And with the recent publication of James Lawrence’s Are We Right? (Part I), now seems to be as good a time as any. I wrote this piece over two years ago, and if I were to do it over again today there are certain portions I would phrase differently—my explanation of particularism would be more precise, for instance. But I stand by my main conclusion about the reasons for the meta-political failure of the Right throughout history, and I think that conclusion is relevant to the questions raised by Lawrence in his essay.

POEM: SLOBODAN PRALJAK


by Leo Yankevich

       He died like Socrates,
 like Hermann Göring in his cell,
       tall and white-bearded, knees
       unshaking as scorn fell
       from his mouth, hemlock downed
 as if a shot of slivovitz,
       eyes turned upwards, head crowned
       by fallen Croats in pits.
       In Mostar, church bells toll
 and candles form a citadel.
       Praljak played his role,
       one few could play as well.
