The Dissident Right

This week I thought I’d try something different and do an entire podcast on just one issue, rather than pulling segments together from stuff that caught my eye during the week. The reason is mostly variety, but I’ve also been seeing the phrase “Dissident Right” turn up around the internet. Before some millennial tries to define the term into some bespoke sissy philosophy, I wanted to put some markers down about what the term means.

I’m not sure if this will be a regular thing. If I get a good response, then maybe I’ll do other podcasts on single topics like this. If people hate it, then I’ll forget the whole thing and pretend it never happened. The goal here was to put together something that people could think about, but also send to their confused normie friends and family to help them make the journey to our side of the great divide. I’ll be doing some posts on the topic as well.

I have one special announcement this week. Tomorrow I will be on the Happy Homelands podcast hosted by RamZPaul and Tiina Wiik. It is a censor friendly live show about the news items of the day. Someone named Junes Lokka will also be on the show. He is a Finnish activist. You can post questions in the YouTube chat window and maybe someone will answer them. This is my first live show, so we;ll see how it goes.

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.

This is an ad for Southern New Hampshire University that states ” the world in which we live equally distributes talent, but it doesn’t equally distribute opportunity”

I think another interesting heritable trait is the different skin color amongst black siblings. It can really run the gamut from really light skinned to very dark. So even when black people have children with other black people it doesn’t guarantee that their children will look like them

Is it my imagination or is the sound quality better …? At the risk of a wedgie from the cool kids I might include a caveat that might be seen as a sop to the progs – but really isn’t. I think that informed and intelligent dissent has to accept and make allowances for the exception to the rule. We are talking about the community minded black that is intelligent, peaceable and respectable. Or the strong women that have earned their respect, and not the dumpy stupid feminists that demand it. Or the Jew that sees the malfeasance of his… Read more »

Thats a reasonable point to an extent and it does appeal to what you would say are the better Angels of our nature. But when those better Angels becoming pathologically suicidally altruistic they leave you incapable of seeing the lack of an outcome, or a massive negative outcome. Lee Kwan Yew was a civic nationalist but experience made him take a harder Han Chinese nationalist stance. I think the quote is once the migrant population goes above 25% all politics becomes identity politics. I think Vox Day ran the numbers on a dark stream. The average black American recieves a… Read more »

to me there is nothing – absolutely NOTHING – wrong or radical about Z’s dissidence. It’s all simple, common sense. We have a black family at our church. They are respectable, honest and fair. They are not hoods, they aren’t race whores that have been educated beyond their intellect like somebody like, say the Obamas. They are the kind of people the progs envision when they say diversity is our strength. Z says it better, but boiled down, we need the right to make the distinction between black people and niggers good people and bad – for ourselves. It used… Read more »

I guess that the black family in your church would exclude you from their black community without a single pang of conscience. Yet whites agonize over a similar exclusion. Reply?

I’m not sure the exact wording but Lee Kwan Yew made the statement that once the minority groups number 25% of the population all politics become identity politics. He was originally a civic nationalist but experience with diversity made him take a firm turn towards Han Chinese diasporan Nationalism. Mass migration changes the character of a nation regardless, late 19th century America.… Read more »

White people, and generally white people only, feel bad excluding someone over a trait they didn’t choose. So, we’re always looking to make exceptions for the few non-whites and Jews who agree with us, (“the based”).

Would the based tolerate virtually no immigration of their own kind, given that their own kind has been so clearly opposed to us?

Would alt-Jews accept the dismantling of the psychologically abusive Holocaust studies in middle school and high school?

No, you’re exactly right, on both the practical facts and also on the politics. There’s no inherent conflict between acknowledging the bell curve while also understanding that there are outliers. Some alt-right types talk as if 99% of blacks are violent morons (and also as if IQ was the only worthwhile human trait). That’s just as observably wrong as blank slatism, it undercuts the claim to realism to sound like that.

Did I miss something? There was no mention of comprehensive tax policy and tax cuts, not to mention our foreign policy in the Middle East. Woefully negligent Z.

At any rate a very good primer and education that should be forwarded to someone we know who may be ready to accept this.

This may be the best podcast you’ve done (not that many of the others weren’t great too). The issues you discuss really do boil down to whether one believes or rejects Blank Slate Egalitarianism. I, for one, have no idea how anyone can fall for such deluded insanity. All a guy has to do to dispel the myth of equality is open his damn eyes. No two individuals are equal, let alone different sexes and races. This would be obvious but not for a blindness — often willful — that plagues most of this denialist species of ours.

The Blank Slate thing turns up in unexpected places.

When an Ayn Rand devotee tried to evangelize me some years back, the Blank Slate seemed to be a central article of faith for him. Not that he would have used terms like “evangelize” and “faith.”

It bears worth repeating…everything is a social construct? The universe is just brute matter and everything else is a construct of the human mind, in particular the process of abstraction and categorization.” Race is linked to biology; ethnicity is linked to culture. Race is a biological and social construct. Ethnicity is a social construct. Ethnicity is the term for the culture of people in a given geographic region, including their language, heritage, religion and customs. To be a member of an ethnic group is to conform to some or all of those practices. In a nutshell, race refers to a… Read more »

Still listening, but the thought strikes me — Perhaps the LEFT(?), or it’s hard-core adherents, actually accept those things you lay out here — HBD etc. If so, likely this just is malignant intellect, or human madness, trying to work toward eternal, delusional social constructs created in their minds. In other words, they accept the same things, but are just fighting desperately and deceptively to put it into chains.

Well “equality of outcomes” is very much part of the Leftist ideology and his been for a long time. I first came across it in the Army where it’s called “gender norming” where physical training standards were horribly compromised to allow females to pass.

You have that in Fire Departments where the female firefighters just stand around and do nothing because they are incompetent and too weak to do what is needed. Even the female Paramedics do nothing.

I’m already hearing horror stories about women getting socially promoted in the STEM fields as well.

Equality of outcome was a bait and switch done on “equality of opportunity.”

Equlity of opportunity was a fairly easy sell back in the 50s and 60s. It sounded very fair. But none of us young Boomer rubes would have taken equality of outcome seriously as a political proposal. We would have thought it was a misprint or a satire.

How naive we were.

This is why you now see a firetruck dispatched on every ambulance run in most larger cities. One reason is that firemen mostly sit around twiddling her thumbs and the other is that you are lucky to see one man in an ambulance these days, let alone two, and there are still more male firemen to do the heavy lifting.

The firemen can also then claim that they were called out dozens of times a week, instead of one or two. Good for the funding and fireman job creation.

It is criminal that women are allowed in the male domains of military, police and fire departments. They emasculate men and women cannot perform to the standard of men. And endanger everyone while they indulge in their fantasy that girls can do whatever boys can do. It’s like the affirmative action air traffic controller hiring that Tucker Carlson spoke about recently. Good God, we are insane to insist that incompetent people are placed in jobs that are critical to literally saving or maintaining lives.

Heck Hispanics hate each other. I’m 40 and a Dominican friend told me this in HS. In my 30s I talked to a very nice Puerto Rican woman. Legal. Her hubby ran a successful business. They were church going folk. She agreed that Hispanics are the most racist against other Hispanics. Dominican and Haitian hate each other. Puerto Rican and Cubans hate each other. Everyone hates Mexicans. I don’t care that the Japanese call me giajin or the Chinese call me baizou. I’m not trying to invade their country

Z – what do you think of a sort of “modified feminism” that that redice chick has talked about? Sort of the “you can be anything but not at the same time” school of thought. It sounds a lot more realistic to your average woman than the “have it all” bs that is true only in the 1%.

Yep both sides. Nurture certainly has a role, why do you think the Left focused on gaining control of public schooling and higher ed and why PR firms are a $200 billion a year business. They all know that opinions can manufactured. Ed Bernays figured it out a long time ago. Hell the founders of public education in Prussia knew g-d damn well you could shape people if you got them young enough. Stalin knew it too. There’s a reason why public schools were initially modeled after factories – because industry needed docile, barely literate workers for their factories. Not… Read more »

These ideas/facts are not determinative on their own. Nothing is, really. It is a matter of where one’s emphasis lies in both describing and driving the sociocultural machine in the direction desired. In a way this is a take on the is/ought dichotomy. We see things they way we think they are and because of that vision decide on the way we think things ought to be. This is the psychology behind just about every revolution in history. Our ancestors did thus and so and we are going to return to this vision of the past and make it our… Read more »

A key element of those of us on the Dissent Right is simply recoginizing that people are different and that you can’t just drop people from Russia, Iran, or Nigeria into Japan and expect society to function the same way and for the low crime rates in Japan to remain. Cultures have their strengths and weakness, but sometimes those weaknesses are so much that they hinder a culture. http://thosewhocansee.blogspot.com/2018/05/diversity-means-difference-case-of.html We saw this with the Italians when they came over, as well as the Irish.

The thing is though that positive can have negative traits depending on your outlook. North East Asian nations such as Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong are very economically prosperous, they’re all very ethnically homogeneos. That is pretty exclusionary to other ethnic groups. But I certainly don’t think any of those countries particularly care about other countries feelz. Their concern is their nations prosperity and future. That is isolationist, but its honest.

Great podcast. Can’t wait to hear more on the general topic of what it means to be Dissident Right. Especially discussed in comparison to other Right groups, e.g. Alt-Right, Alt-Light, Paleocons, White Supremacists. Understanding a group’s principles is necessary. Understanding the contrasts between groups, is when one gets a meaningful feel for a group. Personally I fear I’m helplessly Alt-Light by nature. But I realize it will take a stronger, meaner movement to defeat the enemy. As for this latest podcast serving as a recruitment guide for “confused normies”. It was excellent, save two things.

I was looking forward to forwarding it to some normie friends. But the part with Zman getting pissed about mixed couples in commercials would make them think I was trying to turn them on to some KKK dude. I don’t think Dissident Righters realize how normie normies are.

Z kept it real though. That’s important too.
