Letters To Z Man

Since this week is a show about answering questions, here are a few items I did not have time to address in the show. A few people have asked about Ann Coulter linking to a post the other day. They wanted to know how much traffic it generated. The answer is not very much. Twitter is not much a traffic generator, even with big accounts like Coulter, as people on that platform don’t follow links. It’s why I have not bothered to get back on the platform. It’s just another silo on the internet.

The number one source of traffic here is the search engine. I can see the URL that brings people to me and it is either a topic I cover or something with the phrase “Z Blog” in it. That I take to be word of mouth. Someone mentions to a friend that they read the site and that friend then googles the term. After that, it is sites like Maggie’s Farm, WRSA and the Woodpile. The Feral Irishman is another example of the type of site that moves a lot of people along to other sites.

A few people have asked about why their comments end up in moderation. This is something I’ve been meaning to explain for a while. The spam filter does a great job of blocking the obvious stuff. Questionable items end up in moderation. What makes a comment questionable? Epithets, vulgar language and too many links. If you avoid using crude language and don’t load up the comment with a million links, then it goes right through, so avoid bad language.

I’ve gotten a few queries about the readability of the site on mobile devices. I just added a mobile option to the site, so let me know how it looks. The text should be heavier and slightly larger. I can also increase the mobile font size, but you can also zoom on your mobile to do the same thing. The thing with mobile devices is they are all different and there is no magic way to make the site just right for all of them. Well, there may be a way, but I’m not investing the time to do it.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.


Support the media that supports you. While all of us toiling in the fields of dissident media are motivated by a sense of duty, having a place to sleep and food on the table still requires money. Five bucks a month is not a lot to ask. Or, you can send money to me at: Z Media LLC P.O. Box 432 Cockeysville, MD 21030-0432. I now have a PayPal setup for those who prefer that method to donate. Thank you for your support!

I voted for Ross Perot because I absolutely hated HW Bush. I didn’t expect Perot to win and I was living in California at the time so it didn’t really matter. I don’t think Bush was winning even without Perot – you can’t knife people in the back that blatantly and expect loyalty.

I kind of doubt it. Trump isn’t really our guy but he does often pick the right fights and say the right things. And he has a super-power for making cucks and commies drop their masks. It’s not like working-class whites are going to reject him in favor of Kamala Harris or some other leftist who openly hates them. (Unlike Bill Clinton who they liked)

Bush was just an obvious snake who never meant a word he said while pretending to be a conservative. He was fully exposed the moment he took control.

Trump has lost a lot of support from 2A people. I have three friends who are gun owners and are active in the 2A community. They say they are not going to vote anymore.

They tell me that they are tired of being lied to and made fools of. The gun blogs seem to show that attitude is prevalent. One of the big gun sites recently showed Trump with about a 50% approval rate on the site. This is a poll from people who were in the 90 plus range of support in November 2016.

Tulsi’s in bed with you on that score… Her debate performance suggests she’s angling for VP – a much more palatable color-cuck option to Biden’s allegedly-spurned overtures to Stacey Abrams, with Tulsi being just non-White enough to tick the box while not scaring GoodWhites. Even if Biden didn’t Woodrow Wilson in his first term and give her the Big Girl Chair, he’d be very unlikely to make it to 2028. If he RBD’d his way through, she’d still be the Annointed One for 2028, and she’s very young. Maybe I’m just trying to rationalize her BDS cuck, but if I… Read more »

Yeah, although anything could happen between now and voting day, my impression today is lots of non-voting people who turned out in 2016 to vote for Trump on the chance that he’s the real deal have seen that he, too, is ultimately just another controlled puppet and are either going to stay home or vote for the wackiest liberals they can so as to accelerate matters. Not so confident Trump’s got a second term coming, impossible as that may seem when looking at his loser opponents.

Not voting for Trump could be a mistake for 2A people. Who do they want making appointments to the Supreme Court? DC vs. Heller was 5-4. Two of the four dissenters are still on the SC. The other two were replaced by justices just as bad. So, practically speaking, it would take one of five justices to flip the other way to have a Supreme Court that would recognize no Constitutional limits to gun control by the federal govt.

I think it’s pretty likely that GHW Bush would have won if not for Perot. Clinton didn’t even win a popular majority and I would guess 90+% of Perot’s votes came from the right.

ETA: I also voted for Perot, but I was in a battleground state. I voted for Perot in ’96, too. Dole & Clinton didn’t represent much of a choice.

Used to have stay in Baltimore one week each summer for a sports camp with one of my kids.

That and driving around reminded me of my tour of duty in Detroit. Neighborhoods turn fast–within a block or two.

Regarding the Holocaust, it’s enough for us to say it’s entirely irrelevant to modern life and anyone who raises the issue outside of academic history is (((suspect))), because only that Tribe and its lackeys have any need or care to cudgel modrens with this ancient mythology. If they push the issue, remind them many other millions of people died in that war, rarely in pleasant fashion.

I agree – honking on on about the holocaust serves the opposite of the interests of whoever does it. “Deniers” just sound stupid when they do it as there is too much evidence.

@drake – “Come on. I personally knew WWII Vets who were there when the camps were liberated. They were small-town working guys with no reason to lie about what they saw. Doesn’t prove the claimed numbers, but ugly stuff was going on.”

Outside of the real fringe antisemites and outright deniers, does anyone seriously dispute the reports of the infantryman who initially encountered the camps? Salt-of-the-earth types are often put forth as a sort of proof of purity. It’s not done disingenuously, but it still left-handedly shits on them anyway because it assumes they’re wrong by intended deception.

I don’t dispute that prisoners in German camps were in terrible shape. Since the Germans were losing the war, even the German soldiers were in terrible shape.

There were no camps that conducted industrial mass murder. David Cole, the revisionist J3w, supports this point, although he thinks certain German commanders engaged in mass murder on military campaigns in Poland. Such campaigns are hardly unusual in the history of warfare.

It proves detention camps existed; and that by the end of the war they could not be re-supplied.

Again, if Hideki and Junichiro had been bombing California, Manzanar would have looked the same as Dachau.

Nobody dispute that the Germans had concentration camps – camps were people were imprisoned without trial and used as slave labor.

But that’s not what Holocaust Denial is about, it’s about whether the Germans had “death factories” where they systematically murdered millions of people on a production line basis.

At this point, with so much of the populations of Mexico and Central America now inhabiting the U.S., why the heck doesn’t the U.S. approach these countries and say, “Since so many of you already are here in the U.S., let’s just join all our lands together,” take them over and let us white people move to these places and develop them and make them prosperous.

Have worked within the NY system for years in local elections. The Conservative Party came about as a reaction to Rockefeller Republicans–remember they actually elected Jim Buckley to the Senate back in the 70s. But in the modern construct these parties are allowed to maintain ballot lines so long as they hit certain vote thresholds in elections. And what they’ve ended up as is a distinct group you have to negotiate with on platform to gain their endorsement and line–along with getting petitions signed. It serves as an engagement mechanism.

The Empire thrived during the Cold War because of the same “lesser of two evils” dynamic we see in American politics.

See Coulter’s “Godless” & Vox Day (when I’m not ripping on him in this thread) for some Dawkins refutation. On a more sciencey-plane, check out “Darwin’s Black Box” by Michael Behe. I’m a fan of more science, less faith on scientific theories and Dawkins is one of the guys who reacts like a fedayeen when Darwin-skepticism rears its blasphemous head. Until we have a deeper understanding, we’d be better off if we left the why/how of Darwin vs. anti-Darwin for college students and simply taught the what, when and where of biology in public high schools.

I’ve read “Godless”, which has got nothing to do with darwinism (Queen Ann is too smart to mess with science) and Vox, while making interesting points from time to time, is a crackpot who thinks the moon landings never happened and is endowed with a suspiciously big nose.

I have never watched OB. I do not want to seem to be putting words in others mouths. But, it seems to me the fist man, Dan Petit, uses the term technology when infrastructure would be more appropriate.

Queen Ann disagrees:

From http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2011-08-24.html

“THE FLASH MOB METHOD OF SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY
August 24, 2011”

Roughly one-third of my 2006 No. 1 New York Times bestseller,Godless: The Church of Liberalism, is an attack on liberals’ creation myth, Darwinian evolution. I presented the arguments of all the luminaries in the field, from the retarded Richard Dawkins to the brilliant Francis Crick, and disputed them.

Vox isn’t White by his own admission, he’s an Amerind. He’s also a Western Christian Civilizationist and an Omninationalist (i.e nearly all nationalism is good)

That said he does edge too close to crackpottery and pardon my use of Bill Maher here religulous thinking.

This is fine. The .Alt Christians and I’m lumping the anti abortion types here for all their flaws and frankly stupid views in some areas are energetic and willing to act even at a heavy personal cost

If the rest of the actual Right were so endowed we’d have many fewer problems

You’re full of shinola on “world at war”. I watched it with my dad on tv, and it had an episode called “death works overtime”. Youre local station probably pulled it because of naked bodies moved around by bull dozers.

You might also read Bloodlands by Timothy Snyder. Not much needed to be made up.

The episode was #20 “Genocide” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_at_War

Film clips of piles of bodies being moved by bulldozers in a country ravaged by World War II = indisputable proof that 6 million Jews were killed by being cattle-carred into gas chambers by the SS, and if you don’t believe that, you’re full of “shinola,” goy.

And if that doesn’t convince you, read a book by the Richard C. Levin chair at Yale and member of the Council on Foreign Relations whose Oxford mentor was a Warsaw Pact Ashkenazi.

@AHfOh I go back and forth on the “copy editor” question.

(It’s that easy.) But on the other hand, I think: “Oh, what the heck. We know what he’s trying to say, and I understand his ideas and observations, which are important in our movement.” But I will admit that sometimes when “women” needs to be written as the singular form of “woman,”… Read more »

Vox Day links to you as a source. He has no beef with you from what I can tell. His skepticism of evolution is more technical than anything else (he is skeptical of the maths). He has as much disdain for creationists as anyone else. But I do agree that race realism and now gender realism is a major point of entry for dissident right wing politics. If you ever want to smoke out a cuck, just talk about race in their presence. They cannot help themselves from clucking on and on about the evils of racism. VD is very… Read more »

Well, that’s the story today. Vox goes through spasms where he focuses obsessively on a hate-target, then eventually he gets it out of his system and can relax and regard the target as a normal human being, taking the good and leaving the bad. Z-man was such a target last year, complete with scornful nicknames and blanket condemnation. Now he’s OK. The same thing has happened to Ethan van Sciver, Jordan Peterson and other people I don’t know who date back to Gamergate and sci-fi fiction award scandals.

It would be a gross micharacterization to suggest Vox Day is anti-science or rejects the reality of genetic differences. It would probably be best for Zman to avoid criticizing Vox about evolution, because Vox is much more well-read on the science. If Vox isn’t dissident right, virtually nobody is.

Please forward me the official dissident right membership roster and membership requirements doc. I’m curious what authority put them together.

Vox has done a number of Darkstreams and blog posts about the mathematics of evolution. Unless you want to actually dive into refuting him, I reiterate my suggestion to just refrain from criticism. Blanket statements of “Nuh uh! You’re wrong!” aren’t terribly persuasive.

I doubt Vox Day would disagree with you on any of the above statements, except the “evolution is real” one, and I won’t speak for him more on that as it’s getting pretty far into the weeds. His reasons are published and stand on their own. I guess I’m not in the dissident right either, despite being a fan and periodic financial supporter of Derb for going on 20 years.

Ted Beale is Dis-Right adjacent, more Alt-Lite, has written a lot of good and useful stuff, but he’s a CivNat and a libertarian at heart. The butt-hurt and personal offense you’re displaying about someone mildly criticizing Beale demonstrates the worst trait he shares with his fans. He’s positively feminine in his zeal for extremetly-online interpersonal feuds and gossip. Let Z be Z and Beale be Vox.

I think you should do further research. Vox is not a creationist and his objection to evolution is because of problems he sees in the math. Vox is educated in statistics. One of his criticisms of biology is the lack of statistics requirements in a biology track in most universities. VD wrote the 16 points of the Alt-Right back in 2016 and they were pretty well respected in Alt-Right and dissident circles. VD also wrote Cuckservative How Conservatives Betrayed America. If he is not a dissident, what is he? The guy wrote a book trashing the mainstream right. That is… Read more »

While I would never accuse Kessler of being competent, it was Spencer who inserted himself into the UTR rally (which was always a bad idea) because Kessler refused to be photographed doing Hitler salutes. Kessler has the phone records to prove this because he is involved in the lawsuit and these phone records were subpoenad. It was Spencer who invited the usual suspects (Duke, the Klan, TWP etc) which ended turning UTR into the clown-car colossal screw-up that it was.

I have a similar view of Spencer that Derb seems to have from what I’ve read – too immature, too ambitious – hardly uncommon among smart young White guys. He seems to be learning as he gets older. He wanted to be a leader more than he wanted a specific ideology to succeed long term. I hope he continues to evolve into a useful member of White identity and away from the shooting-star mentality fame whore of the past.

I’m in the Darwin’s-missing-something camp adjacent to Beale on evolution, but agree with Z on Beale’s politics and his ambivalent-at-best relationship with the Alt-RIght and Dis-Right.

No Enemies on the Right should be the rule with few exceptions, and I will righteously criticize Beale on having a feminine-libertarian tendency to pick nits and undermine solidarity with things like the 16 points. That said, Beale’s a net positive if you ignore this, which I generally manage to do. He’s on the White team.

His side the Hard Right or Deus Vult crowd if you like are stuck on Christianity as a social baseline and have no plan to build a society if modernity rejects it

This seems their biggest flaw overall.

When your worldview is derived from some ancient hebrew text and you believe that a functional civilization requires other follow this text , it can cloud your judgement

That aside Beale and his people for the most part are very much on our side.

They are good men just a bit blinkered.

I think for most of the factions on the right, almost everyone is an outsider.

Regarding outlier minorities/civic nationalism, I would permit them as “associates” in small numbers (<10% ish of White pop) in similar fashion to how the Mafia treated Irishmen and Jews so long as they were Jim Crow/apartheid-style segregated from core ethnic areas. I've commented before that I'd also make provision in my ideal ethnostate for internationalist free cities which were politically, socially and East/West Berlin-style physically firewalled from their Jim Crow/apartheid mixed ethnic zone "suburbs," with Whites-only areas being the vast majority of remaining territory.

Your accepted non-whites will inevitably find means to breed with our women. Even artificial ones. Physical separation must be enforced under penalty of death. We cannot sustain a healthy white population if our females are permitted to birth hatchlings of the others. Exclusive breeding will determine whether whites persist.

I’m pretty clear there about apartheid-level separation. As for death penalty, that’s White Sharia on steroids. I don’t think White wahmen raised in a healthy White society are so desparate to burn the coal that only the threat of death can quench the thirst. Look at the pre-1960’s South – simply outlawing mixed marriage was sufficient until the Berger court stuck its crooked nose(s) into the mix.

The point about Washington DC corrupting people on our side is an important point and needs more attention. Whether it be congressmen, Supreme Court justices, or even bureaucrats, it happens. If I were president, I’d sign an executive order moving almost all federal agencies out of the capital and break up the agencies into smaller units and put them in dying Rust Belt towns. The five richest counties (and over half of the top 20) in the country surround DC. These is a HUGE problem. The country was much better off before the DC cocktail party circuit became THE thing.

Outlawing would be a good idea. I also approve of the punishment of exile for citizens who commit political crimes – expulsion from the country, with a penalty of death should they return. I would consider that an acceptable punishment for people like the Obamas and Clintons, since there’s too much squeamishness and fear of slave riots if they were executed for treason. Let them wander the world like Flying Dutchmen.
