Avoiding The Fate Of The Know-Nothings

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

The Alt-Right is in the process of taking over the Republican Party. It’s a hostile takeover to be sure. We’re making inroads with Americans and the Identitarians are shifting the debate on immigration in Europe. However, if the Alt Right is to truly become the mainstream political movement that the Left fears it can become, we must look to history to understand how to avoid the fate of the America Party, otherwise known as the Know-Nothings.

We must develop a coherent message beyond just immigration reform and white identity. Indeed if we are to fully engage white Americans we must understand that much of what concerns them isn’t just immigration, but the effects of immigration. We need to engage with them in terms of economics, as in, we need something to present beyond basic bitch conservative “lower taxes” and “fiscal responsibility,” as if those are anything more than marketing buzzwords. We need to engage with whites when it comes to education, both primary and secondary. We need to have a coherent healthcare solution, or at least the beginning of one. And ultimately, we need some kind of foreign policy for dealing with the Middle East, China, India (the rising power that’s often forgotten) and we need to be ready for a multipolar world where the United States is not the lone superpower.

To make this clearer, look at the difference in the success of President Trump and the failures of Wilders and Le Pen. Trump tied immigration to jobs in the rust belt states and to the need to control our borders. He did not win with immigration alone, but instead made it a part of a comprehensive strategy to “MAGA.” On the other hand Le Pen and Wilders were seen in their respective countries as immigration-only candidates and while it should be noted that Wilders’ Party for Freedom (PVV) did quite well, he did not win his election. Perhaps it will take a second election cycle in Europe for Europeans to embrace anti-immigration and anti-migration platforms, but it won’t happen without incorporating plans for other aspects of the population’s concerns.

White identity will be the defining issue of the next generation of Americans. We cannot afford to lose potential voters, many of whom will be former Democrats or libertarians, because we failed to make a comprehensive and coherent platform centered on issues of practical, real-world importance to whites.

So let’s look at the history of the Know-Nothing Party in the United States to make sure we can avoid their fate. First, they operated as an independent party. That was a little more feasible in the nineteenth century, but America was still effectively controlled by two major parties. The Know-Nothings were the response to rising anti-immigrant sentiment in the 1840s centering on the influx of Catholic Germans and Irish. This is what earned the party the label of anti-Catholic. And indeed this helped them do very well in the 1850s.

But their success was short lived.

The Know-Nothings broke along predictably geographic lines due to the issue of slavery. Anti-slavery members went Republican while pro-slavery members joined the Democrats. But is there an issue such as slavery that defines the twenty-first century? At first glance not really. It would seem the Alt-Right is situated in such a position that no major issue will destroy it. However, this isn’t necessarily true. The Second American New Right, a composite of Alt Right and Alt Lite, is fracturing as we’ve seen at the recent free speech rally in Washington DC, as well as at other rallies around the country.

The Alt Lite seems hell-bent on not only distancing themselves from the Alt Right, but by eliminating it from public spaces. The reason though is clear: the Alt Lite isn’t a right wing movement at all. They’re really no different than liberals. In fact you’ll often hear them claiming that they are classical liberals or that they are defending “Western values” but without mentioning that those values are the product of the European people.

The division will come and is in my opinion, already here. The Alt Right is rooted philosophically in a rejection of Enlightenment values such as democracy, equality, universalism, and “human rights.” By contrast, the Alt Lite struggles to hold on to anything other than a pro-Trump vision for the future. The breakup of the New Right will come as soon as the Alt Lite realizes they must either side with the liberals or side with the Alt Right. Civic Nationalism, the proposition nation, and other comfortable compromises are untenable.

As the breakup comes the Alt Right must be prepared to address issues of interest to whites across geographic, economic, and the social spectrum. If we fail to create meaningful policies centered on keeping whites as the majority in America we will find ourselves confined to the dustbin of history. We will find ourselves defending Spanish language debates between the GOP candidate and the Democratic candidate. Or we will find ourselves looking for ways to repatriate to the few countries in Europe that are, for now, resisting demographic replacement.

Francis Is The Anti-Pope

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

You cannot uphold traditional morality while serving in the role as an SJW. Pope Francis wants to modernize the Catholic Church. He wants them to be more concurrent with the society around it. He wants them to do what the cool kids do. As Christ once sardonically remarked. “They have their reward.” So show him what he wins, Dom Pardo.

Vatican police raided a drug-fueled gay sex party at a top priest’s apartment near the city, according to an Italian newspaper report. The apartment’s occupant, who was not named by police, serves as a secretary to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, a personal adviser to Pope Francis. The apartment belongs to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith — the branch that reviews appeals from clergy found guilty of sexual abuse of minors, according to Italian daily Il Fatto Quotidiano, which first published the explosive report.

It gets better, even more vibrant, diverse and tolerant. Anti-Pope Francis himself acknowledges that homosexuals within the church are attempting to rewrite the church doctrine.

Not long after his election, Pope Francis acknowledged the existence of a gay lobby, suggesting he would try to root it out. “In the Curia there are holy people, it’s true, there are holy people,” Francis said in June, 2013. “But there is also a current of corruption, this as well, it’s true. People talk about a ‘gay lobby’ and it is true. It exists and we will have to see what we can do about it.” For his part, Pope Benedict XVI revealed in his 2016 memoirs titled Last Testament that a “gay lobby” within the Vatican had tried to influence his decisions, but that he thought he had managed to “break up this power group.” According to Reuters, the idea of a gay lobby in Vatican would allegedly refer to a group of homosexuals who have “banded together to support each other’s careers and influence decisions in the bureaucracy.”

What was it the church recently told people about cracking down on pedophiles?

However, Federico Lombardi, spokesman for the Holy See, showed a rare display of openness and named Archbishop Josef Wesolowski as one of the accused that had triggered the investigation. Although this may seem like a forthcoming gesture by the Vatican, reports of Wesolowski not only possessing more than 100,000 images and videos of children being forced into sex acts but also of him sexually abusing multiple children in Poland and the Dominican Republic have already previously been exposed in 2014.

But hey, nobody corners the market on being Pro-Life quite like The Catholic Church. Oh, wait. And they are stolidly trustworthy. in their stewardship of the dollars parishoners put in the collection plate.

Italian police arrested the Rev. Nunzio Scarano, a senior prelate working in the Vatican treasury, officially known as the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See. Scarano stands accused of trying to smuggle some 20 million euros from Switzerland to Italy on behalf of a financier. According to prosecutors, Scarano and his associates concocted a plan that seems to come straight out of a spy movie, involving a rented plane and help from contacts within the Italian secret service.

So now Pope Francis is outraged. He’s like the character in Casablanca who was shocked to find gambling in his establishment. The man tolerates everything, so therefore, that is exactly what he gets under his roof. He has to tolerate everything. He is a worshipping #SJW. He can certainly punish actual transgressions. To his minimal credit, he has fired some of the worst and most indefensible characters currently infesting The Vatican. But he leaves the conditions for that sort of thing in place because it is against his fundamental ideology to judge and then exclude the sort of person that will behave like a criminal or a pervert.

This weakness makes Francis an Anti-Pope. The title “Pope” is linguistically equivalent to father. The Pope is supposed to be a father to his flock. As Jesus told St. Peter. “If you love me, then feed my sheep.” A father demonstrates love through action. Action frequently involves discipline (or “fascism” as the kids call it now). Give your kid a choice every night between ice cream and brocoli, and it’s hello childhood obesity. Give them a choice between Pre-Algebra or Grand Theft Auto and you’d better hope there is a widely available career path that greatly values video gaming over analytical thinking.

So if Francis allows for a large faction within his personal staff that follows an openly gay lifestyle, he shouldn’t count on them being nice about his image and going for a 500 mile plane trip before the next drug-fueled gang-bang. If he knows a seminary produces short-eye padres, then he needs to close it down. Otherwise, the church will remain a threatening steward of young children. If the Pope can’t trust his own cardinals with the image of The Holy See, or the children of the men and women he’s telling to practice marital fidelity; then Francis shouldn’t get his jimmies too badly rustled when the help runs off with The Vatican Treasury either. All of this is part and parcel to the suicidal tolerance of dispicable behavior that underlies the ideological constitution of the SJW.

In conclusion, Pope Francis is too fatally flawed to lead a major Christian Church anywhere other than to cucked ruination. WHile he remains Pontifex Maximus, ignores his requests that you give his church money. Any resource that goes into his hands may well end up funding any sort of behavior he is willing to tolerate from his organization. This example from Catholicism is why more and more people are letting the Gramscied Mainline Denominations dry up and blow away. Perhaps this continued degradation of these ancient church organizations requires a rise of an Alt-Christianity or a CGTOW (Christians Going Their Own Way) Movement. Because while Francis tolerates the perverts in his midst, he will only tell the dutiful faithful to give ’til it hurts.

Rebirth Of The Spirit

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

Life provides infinite chances to fall into infinite loops caused by paradoxical thinking. For example, the Antifa groups who complain about attributes of fascism — repression, censorship, “racism,” brutality — soon find themselves exhibiting those same traits. And some of this is natural; for example, if you want to bust pedophiles, you will spend much of your time exposed to kiddie pron.

German novelist Günter Grass wrote a novel called The Tin Drum, and through it produced a powerful metaphor for the 20th century: it is like the incessant beat of a drum, repeating the same phrases, so that the sheep herd to do whatever is the current fanciful notion of how to avoid the free-fall decay of a once-great civilization.

Ideology is like that tin drum. It must be beaten, repetitively, and even if in new patterns it sounds out the same ideas. The basic idea of ideology is that the weakness of society, which is externalization in both (a) socialized cost and (b) conformity, can be harnessed like a factory to make people who each march to the beat of the tin drum toward a centrally-determined goal.

After all, this is what democracy, fascism, communism and socialism have in common. There is a central command which issues control orders. Then, everyone obeys these equally. Even if that central command is elected as in democracy, soon an Establishment forms which controls what happens more than the current candidate.

This means we need to be suspicious of those external orders or anything which behaves like them.

Control orders invert existing ideas and institutions. They do this by changing these things from goals in themselves, to methods which serve the purpose of more control. This means that no matter how hard you try to make something work, it will defeat you, because the meaning behind the symbols has been altered to be its exact opposite.

Consider (perhaps) the problem of Western Civilization. We know that it has fallen; it grieves us to say this. In turn, we realize that it needs a rebirth, and on some level, we all know that this cannot be done externally. We are not going to be able to elect a single candidate, make a single law, or even create a fanatical dictatorship to enforce this.

The cultural wave which brought us Brexit, Trump and perhaps Le Pen shows us the force of internal motivation. Across the former West, the natural leaders in communities from all walks of life have started to become cynical about the inertial direction of our civilization, and this has caused them to want alternatives to more equality, diversity, democracy and consumerism.

That has placed them at odds with both the Establishment and the herd, which chases trends but only catches on to them after their peaks, so that it is always pursuing what worked yesterday in the hopes that it will make them popular tomorrow. This is why consumer fashion today mimics high fashion ten years ago, and why most investors rush in to buy a “hot stock” only to find its value has faded.

While this cultural wave is refreshing, it is only the first stage; it is formed of doubt and resentment of what exists now, and does not yet have in mind another direction. It will need to give people an alternative to modernity in order to succeed.

For us to find that alternative, we need a spiritual rebirth. The problem with this is that it cannot be done externally. For this reason, all of the Rightists flocking to variations on patriotism, religion and working hard are failing just as solidly as those who insist we can achieve our rebirth through racial separation alone. There needs to be something to tie all of these together.

Perhaps the worst of the tin-drum-bangers are those who have flocked to the Church and are using it as a substitute for spiritual rebirth. The church is still an external force; it cannot change what is in the soul. Using it as a substitute for that internal change will effect an inversion.

Among the various dissident Right groups, there seems to be a competition for who can find the oldest church and cling to it like a life vest. Some favor Catholicism, but others are unhappy with anything but full eastern Orthodox. But ultimately this becomes a form of ideology as well, a symbol standing for the whole, and it will not bring victory but defeat.

We know modernity is a horror. Civilizations die because society ceases to become a means to the end of a good life, but becomes an end in itself. People learn to play the game. This is why nothing changes: the game rewards inertia, and in mass groups, inertia arises from fears. Fears of insufficiency, or of having made the wrong decision and being suddenly uncool, dominate the human mind. Ideologies of inclusivity salve these fears, and this quickly attracts a mass which seeks convenient mental answers, and those who offer pleasant illusions become powerful on the wave of this crowd, in industry, government and even religion. This is why all of these things have taken on a bureaucratic character and become abusive. This abusive behavior leads to all of us acting out unnecessary tasks in order to demonstrate ideological obedience. This is the end result of ideology, even well-intentioned ones.

The spiritual rebirth we need is within and cannot be enforced by an external doctrine, or by going through rituals, or even through fervent dedication. It must be a change in our will. We must cast aside the doubt and fear, and fully desire to restore the West again. This requires rejecting intermediaries like the Church or fascism which are ultimately symbols standing for the whole. We need to cultivate in our hearts the desire to be good, to rise above the rest, and to put everything to right. We cannot rely on any external forces in lieu of this inner force.

In discovering this inner force, we cannot shape ours thought by anything but intuition. We know what good is because it is what not only survives in nature, but creates a greater qualitative degree of beauty, accurate observation of our world, and a desire to exist in union with the order of the universe, which steadily improves itself by qualitative degree, as we see in how our thoughts evolve and how natural selection makes eagles and hummingbirds from sparrows. Since we know good, we have only to discover a will toward it in our souls.

Our future consists of divergent paths. A society based on externalization and control, or a choice for something different. We will not know what it looks like until we begin walking the path toward this new choice. We know for certain however that it begins in the formulation of our will toward something good, instead of finding new ways to bang the tin drum.

Western Religion (And Religious Westernism)

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

Among us now come many who have staked all of their hopes on a single tool to fix a complex situation, for example, religion. Many especially among our most learned and thoughtful believe that society must begin again with religion as the tool that makes this happen, but they would produce the worst of possible results, much as happened when Hitler treated race the same way: as a tool.

Our time is ruled by social popularity, democratic voting and consumer-based industry. We are accustomed to creating tools, whether physical or institutional, that shape people around us by forcing all of them through a filter. In this filter, they must either obey the dogma or face some kind of sanctions, although those seem only to fall on the good taxpayers and not those who make lives of crime.

The problem with tools is that they not only fail to contain meaning, or knowledge of goals (“ends”), but that they actively displace meaning. Your mind only has so much space of focus, and if all of the focus goes into methods (“means”) instead of ends, then the reasoning behind doing things is lost. This allows fools to compete with the wise by emulating them, and the audience cannot tell the difference.

Of those people who want religion to save the West — fundamentalists, evangelicals, some traditionalists and pentacostals — the analysis remains consistent because it has been so for the past two hundred years. They talk a good deal about morality, and how they will set an example, which turns out to mean they will go to their church, drop out of society at large, earn money and pay taxes.

In short, they will not fight the enemy, but will enrich themselves, and in the meantime, be the good stupid little sheep that any parasitic system needs. If you want to know why people are fleeing churches, it is that the Christian conservatives act like morons, and the rest of the flock is too busy trying to be hip, young and liberal so they can get some of those donations, but it never works for long.

People who are trying to use religion to save the West have made religion into a political organ. They want to use it like a tool to filter people and force us all to obey what becomes a de facto ideology. In other words, they make religion into liberalism by attempting to use it as a force against liberalism.

A more sensible vision, as offered on this site, is that we will not have a single over-arching theory as liberals do. Even conservatism itself has two general planks, time-proven methods and transcendental goals. Religion is part of this, possibly an inseparable part, but it is not the core. The core is a desire to be realistic and from that, to choose what is best for ourselves and recognize that the rest of humanity will not. That leads to something like our four pillars, varied methods shaped around the goal of excellence through realism and self-discipline.

In other words, our basic outlook has to be evolutionary. We rise because we target excellence, but most of the world will always be a human wasteland because most people are dishonest because they are solipsistic, in the eternal weakness of humankind. Our big brains become mental bubbles in which we live while life passes by outside, and we waste our time on garbage instead of making greatness of our days.

Every part of life demands greatness. Even the simplest acts of craftsmanship, agriculture and day-to-day leadership can be improved qualitatively as an infinite dimension. There is always room to be go further, but it is not through a change in methods, but through refinement of our understanding, self-discipline, aesthetics and other inner skills.

We do not know what the future holds for us, but it seems likely that there will be a rebirth of Western religion. This will occur through a desire to restore the West by finding reality, and will emerge from our focus on what is real, which includes religion but is not limited to it. Religion in fact can serve as a proxy, a game or a legal puzzle, for understanding this reality. The tool then becomes the master, and the master the slave.

This religion may even be a revitalized Christianity. Writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Paul Woodruff and T.S. Eliot have given us a vision of what that might be like, with Tolkien and Woodruff leading the pack. But more likely, the strength of Christianity — its communication through fable and laws — will be its downfall. In our new complex era, we need something more.

Another writer, Michel Houellebecq, expresses something else: admiration for Christianity, but recognition that its vitality has faded, and so it needs to be restarted and renewed, if not remade in our image. We do not need a Western religion; we need a religious Westernism, a belief in ourselves in our goodness that includes the will to find God in all things, but not through the tired manipulations of the flagging church.

It is likely that the Western religion will be like our original pagan faiths, unwritten and in fact, not formalized. It will not be used as a tool, where the religion is the means of changing our motivation, but will be discovered as part of daily life. The ancients might have said to us that they did not have religion, only an awareness of an order within the patterns of life, and that this transparency allowed them to avoid turning it into a dogma, an ideology and a tool.

Our original religion comes from nature and is based in the idea that nature reflects a more complex order than man, because man must fit into this order. We study patterns and from them, can make some conclusions which are firmer than any material objects in their prevalence in our lives. For example, we notice that life seems to strive for beauty, balance, harmony and purpose, always refining itself toward greater complexity which is a form of simplicity with many layers, not lots of unconnected detail in the modern “complex” way that is really ornamentation.

To the ancients, religion was inseparable from any other form of knowledge. They knew that the natural world was everything, but that it had layers which are not visible to the living, and it has spaces to which the non-living pass, but that these are battlegrounds not of good versus evil but order versus randomness, with evil being an agent of that randomness because it is moral selfishness, or hubris.

Their beliefs were logical and rigorously ordered, not symbolic as the Asiatic religions were, and they were not backward like the process of using religion as a political tool. Instead, they sought to put each thing in its place, and then improve everything qualitatively according to the order found in nature. This is a more mature faith than what we have now, and the only type of belief that can aid us in our task of restoration.

The ultimate legacy of SJW Pope Francis

Friday, March 4th, 2016

zombie_pope_ritual

Josef Stalin once famously inquired “How many divisions has the Pope?” He was responding to a growing sense within the CCCP Party elite that papal displeasure would lead to a hiccup in the grand Marxist global conquest. It did at a later date. This was to be long after the long run had ended for Premier Stalin. Donald Trump has essentially offered up a similar inquiry. “Of what validity is a papal fatwa?”

You see, Pope Francis has heard Donald Trump speak out on several issues near and dear to the Pontifex Maximus’ Inner Gramsci. It would appear that His Eminence views The Donald as The Bad, Old Antithesis. According to Pope Francis, those who build walls instead of bridges have not heard the good news. He offers his homilies below.

“Building walls instead of bridges is not Christian; this is not in the Gospel,” the pope said. The pope said he hadn’t heard about Trump’s plan, but took reporters’ word for it, and said he’d give Trump “the benefit of the doubt.” But he added: “I’d just say that this man is not Christian if he said it this way.”

Donald Trump went positively Beast Mode when he picked up the social media joystick to respond.

I think he doesn’t understand the problems our country has,” Trump said. “I don’t think he understands the danger of the open border that we have with Mexico. I think Mexico got him to do it because Mexico wants to keep the border just the way it is because they’re making a fortune and we’re losing.”

This was Trump being nice. He later went to a rally and reached back for full-metal concern-troll on The Pontiff.

“…if and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which everybody knows is ISIS’ ultimate trophy, I can promise you the pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president.”

So the question for Pope Francis became “What was His Holiness thinking?” You don’t wrestle with pigs unless you like it down in the gritty mud. That’s where The Donald lives*. If you’ve ever played prop in a rugby match against an opponent with absolutely gross personal hygiene, you know what a verbal sparring contest with The Donald is like. So why did Pope Francis so completely disgrace The Holy See?
Well, here goes the explanation of why.

  1. Pope Francis could give a flying Kangaroo-Rat’s Rear-end less about Catholicism. Like any good Gramscian termite, he saw it as an institutional base of power he could subvert, use and help rot. So what if he has to put the clown suit on and say ridiculous things? “Magna cum laude, summa cum laude, the radio’s too loudy.” He’ll put the show on as long as he gets the power and adulation. His hatred and contempt for the poor desperate souls that he flim-flams with his pseudo papacy knows no logical boundary.
  2. Donald Trump is appealing to a certain audience that Pope Francis believes are his. Not in the metaphorical sense, not in the show-biz sense. Pope Francis believes the poor are truly his. He gets to collect them and trade them with his friends like Simon Legree. If Donald Trump were to merely issue mortal threats against the Vatican, Pope Francis couldn’t be bothered. But the Donald threatened Francis’ true concern. The Donald now has to be excommunicated.

So Francis was out of his league with The Donald. The truly cynical man sees Francis for the utter fraud that he is. The Donald has seen every slimy SJW entriest that ever came down the pike and knew his best course of actions was to tell Faux Francis to go blow it out the sanctified cloaca maxima. When Trump publically explained Pope Francis was a disgrace, it was time for Snidely Whiplash to hop back into his Pope Mobile and slink away. A papal Spokesman emerged with the pooper-scooper to do the unenviable media cleanup job.

“In no way was this a personal attack, nor a voting indication,” Lombardi said. At first, Trump responded angrily, calling the pope’s remarks “disgraceful,” and saying no religious leader should question his faith. But Thursday night, he also softened his tone, saying during a CNN town hall that he likes the pope and what he represents. “I don’t think this is a fight,” Trump said. “I think he said something much softer than was originally reported by the media.”

As one talented Twitter smart-aleck put it “What we have here is failure to excommunicate.” This taught me two lessons. One as the newly-minted Nrxer and another as the believing Christian. As an Nrxer, I learned that the true rebel can challenge a phony SJW abusing an unearned title and banish the imposter the way the wielder of blessed crucifix sees off the malignant Nosferatu.

As a believing Christian, the words of St Paul were truly verified.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

In the end Pope Francis is just an SJW fraud. He has no love. As St. Paul so presciently predicted, he is nothing. This is why the crass, hard and cynical Donald Trump just pried him off the bottom of his shoe like a flattened pile of dog turds. Go and do thou likewise with all the SJW frauds that bedevil your existence.
