Suicidal Stupidity

Since the early days of the alt-right, there has been a debate among dissidents about the utility of street protests. Prior to the Charlottesville debacle, most people, including the alt-lite types, were sure it was necessary for right-wing groups to “show the colors” on the street, even if it meant confrontation with the goon squads of the Left. Many, of course, were excited by the opportunity to mix it up with groups like Antifa. The truth is, a lot of guys were attracted to the alt-right because they wanted the action.

After the Charlottesville disaster, opinion swung the other way. Richard Spencer soldiered on with his college speaking gigs, but each one was more embarrassing than the next, as the Left turned them into a violent circus that was blamed on the alt-right and anyone within distance of them. The authorities and the media openly sided with Antifa, so these events became recruiting videos for them. It was black clad street fighters versus cartoon Nazis, with the black bloc always winning.

Despite the obvious futility of these types of things, there remains a faction that insists this sort of stuff is useful. A group calling itself Patriot Prayer holds street events in Portland Oregon, where they are pummeled by well-organized Antifa gangs, supported by the police and the mayor. This past weekend, they had a rally where a small number of them got the hell beat out of them by hundreds of Antifa. An old man was beaten with crowbars and an Asian homosexual was doused with some sort of chemical.

Of course, the internet was full of right-wingers, mostly the goofy civic nationalist types, demanding sympathy for what happened. It was the usual stuff, accusing the Left of being the real fascist enemies of freedom. It is just another form of the hand-wringing we would see from the Buckley crowd after they lost another fight with the Left. It is an effort to turn failure into noble suffering. As someone one Gab put it, it is just failure theater that makes the Left look good and the Right look like losers.

Frankly, there should be zero sympathy for the people getting beaten at these events, as they deserve the beating. If someone walks into a biker club and starts challenging the bikers on their home turf, no one would be shocked if the bikers beat the crap out of the idiot. In fact, most people would assume the guy had it coming. The same applies to these stupid street protests like the one in Portland. These people are begging to be assaulted on camera by Antifa, so they get what they deserve.

More important, they are functioning as the willing stooges of Antifa. Without some right-wing goofballs there would be no reason for the riot. If they did riot, they would be blamed for it and the media would be forced to report the truth, at least some of the truth, about the people involved. With the rental clowns from the Right, the whole show can go on according to the script. It becomes one long recruiting video for Antifa, which ends up looking like the place to go if you are young and angry.

This is an extension of a larger fight among dissidents, between the old white nationalist types and the younger, smarter activists and thinkers, who have entered the space over the last decade. The old school types like the street brawls for personal reasons, but they insist their old tactics are the only tactics. These are the people who insist on being public, self-doxing and adopting taboo iconography. These are the guys who say, “if you’re are going to be called a Nazi, you may as well be one.”

The last part, of course, is just surrendering to the Left. Once you allow the Left to define the terms, they control the language. Once they control the language, they control the public morality and you have lost. Oddly, this is the same basic mistake the Buckley types have been making for generations. The result is that the old white nationalists were never more than the organ grinder’s monkey for the Left. When lefty needed some cartoon Nazis, he would whistle and these guys would perform.

The idiocy of this stuff should be obvious, but it persists for a reason. Despite generations of failure, young men are attracted to these tactics because they offer some adventure and excitement. Even while getting humiliated by Antifa, there is a sense of fraternity that has a timeless appeal. Of course, it helps that the Left has evolved to encourage this behavior, as it furthers their interests. They have become adept at conjuring this sort of street theater and turning it into propaganda.

That said, it is exactly why charging into a left-wing stronghold in order to be pummeled into submission is suicidal stupidity. On the one hand it plays right into the familiar narrative the Left has used for generations to control white people. This is their game and they play it well. On the other hand, it suggest that dissidents are no better than the Antifa street thugs. Fair or foul, people judge you by the company you keep and those pictures of street brawls are what normal white people see on television.

Activism of any sort is about encouraging your side and discouraging the other side. If your efforts encourage the other side, they are always bad for your side. Making the enemy stronger is never good. On the other hand, activism that makes your side stronger, outside the sight of the enemy is the best, as it leaves them unprepared. By definition, the sorts of street theater we saw in Portland should be avoided. In fact, it should be assumed they are staged by the Left to serve the ends of their activism.

Although not exactly the same thing, since there’s no violence, is it a good idea for dissident rightists such as Jared Taylor to give interviews to CNN or other mainstream media outlets, knowing that his views will be mischaracterized at best, or that the interview tapes will be edited to make him look like Reinhard Heidrich? I understand the argument that some people, seeing the program, will look up AmRen and make the judgment for themselves. But I fear many more people will turn away in disgust–it’s a form of seeking engagement on the enemy’s turf and on the enemy’s… Read more »

Sailer knows what time it is, so he quietly continues to do what he does best, which is write, and I still read him everyday. He does not make the mistake of engaging with mass media, and unlike Taylor, Sailer has many silent fans in the mass media, including some folks at Fox and even the NYT.
Sailer can’t be compared to Jared, and although I like Jared, I can’t believe he fell for this crap again. I think he just can’t help himself.

DivHereretic: “knowing that his views will be mischaracterized at best, or that the interview tapes will be edited to make him look like Reinhard Heidrich?” OK, that’s not how more serious documentaries do it. If anything, they’ll show Jared in a dignified light, and they won’t bother with obvious bush league edits. To give weight to the doc they’ll show that a movement has a leader who’s respectable and who’s to be taken seriously. A fatherly elite type. This sets up the hook. Which is, “Mr. Logic may not be evil himself, but look what he’s spawned.” Point is, CNN… Read more »

It simply doesn’t matter much that Jared went on CNN. Granted, it is a problem when certain rightwing nutjobs are interviewed as being leaders of Our Thing. But I’m not buying the “never engage on enemy turf” construct. Yes there are reasons not to deal with MSM, but they’re not THAT great. There’s no compelling reason why some of the more verbally adept on our side should rule out engaging.

There is something to be said for controlling the streets. But when civil authorities with firearms side with the opposition there can be no controlling streets unless one is organized, capable of deploying supported, overwhelming and free-ranging forces and resources, as ruthlessly as justified, able to sensibly deploy these forces, and prepared to die for the Cause or willing to go the ground afterwards.

Alzaebo, your friend might be right, i.e., any”one” can become an American. But we don’t make public policy on the anecdotal—rather, the statistical average with regard to current scientific evidence concerning HBD.

If these “boomers” and “half-mestizos” agree with you 75%, and are willing to fight for it, why are you criticizing them? Would you prefer they just be 100% white under-50s who engage in social media all day? I don’t think civnats are the problem here. The dissident right needs as big a tent as it can get. That is, by the way, how the leftists are winning. They have LGBT churches now. If the left can abdorb church people, then I think the dissident right can absorb “half-mestizos”

Wow, brilliant idea, Marko – just like Zman’s beloved “alt-Jews.” Simply redefine identitarianism or ethnonationalism to include all the magical mystery meat civnats and WIN!!! And now I’ll get downvoted by everyone with an Asian or Latina wife, or really nice brown neighbors, because “What about meeee?” and NAXALT. Hint – if the so-called “dissident right’s” acceptance of HBD is limited solely to Negro criminality, it’s not particularly dissident at all. Furthermore, it is not a logical or coherent worldview and is, in fact, no different from the left’s standard moral framework about muh human race and equality.

I think that identitarianism/ethno-nationalism are parts of the dissident right, not the whole dissident right. I have no problem with identitarians being exclusive. I also agree that civnats and leftists have the “muh human race” in common. But I’m anti-immigration, I agree that whites should have homelands, and I “notice things” as Steve Sailer would say. Though I am not an identitarian. That makes me a civnat on the right. Many whites can believe all those things mentioned above but stop short of being a white identitarian like Mark Collett.

It’s okay to be white, to preserve your country’s heritage, culture, language, demographics and to look out for your own/group interests.

Some of them seem to be “zombie churches”. They have all kinds of outreach programs and links to the local governments but few actual parishioners. My guess is that some rich liberal bankrolled these things and then conveniently died. Now they just burn through the trust money.

My thinking here is that some form of Proposition Nationalism makes a certain amount of sense. A lot of my own Italian and German ancestors probably should never have been allowed into the country. Eventually though they “became Americans” as they say. The thing to note though is that the groups who did that in the past were coming into a country that was very, very insistent on assimilation. You speak English here and leave your Marxism back in Hamburg or Milan. This is why the Left is so insistent on multiculturalism. They don’t want people to assimilate at all.… Read more »

Sigh. You need to look up what “assimilation” truly and ultimately means. If I had been working at Ellis Island when my ancestors arrived I would have denied them entry. My husband doesn’t identify in any way with his Irish or Italian ancestors, the earliest of whom got here in 1883. But for each one like us, there are thousands more who think they’re “assimilated” if they wear jeans or speak some form of English. They’re not.

So how do you propose to welcome all races and nationalities while ensuring they aspire to “white American concepts of freedom, limited government, etc.”? Ask them to sign a pledge? The practical reality is that your wishful concepts are the product of a historical process involving white European-derived people. You can’t just import non-white, third world economic migrants while telling them, “Now be good and assimilate. Constitution! Rule of law! Community!” That’s not part of their historical process.

The criticisms here are valid as far as they go. Genes are not propositions and obviously some races are going to be easier to absorb than others. In particular, migrants from Africa and Muslim lands need to be strongly encouraged to leave. There needs to be a kind of parsing of people by IQ and occupation.

I’m sure the article is biased. Wikipedia for anything other than looking up scientific terms always is. The part about the 200 vs. 1000 though is plausible. I get to meet a lot of Portland, OR’s “finest” young commie men, well – “men”. They seem to come in 2 forms, emaciated and morbidly obese. Neither has any muscle tone or would be a match for a burly construction working with a pipe.

It seems to me that the Patriot Prayer guys getting their heads smashed up is more or less equivalent to blacks marching some place where they figured the cops would set dogs on them. It’s a good thing insofar as it really, really irritates the CivNats & helps push them to this side.

The thing with construction workers and pipes is what you do when you know the cops are on your side, which is why Antifa gets uppity in Portland and not in Alabama.

I haven’t heard about much Antifa action in red-states. Even a place like Boston has very limited tolerance for their BS. That’s why I agree with – going to Portland, Seattle, of San Fransisco to brawl with them is just idiotic. The cops, politicians, and media are all on the other side. There is no winning there.

The Civnats ain’t us, but Antifa has one insult for anyone they disagree with. Antifa has done more to rehabilitate the word Nazi than anyone on the planet. If you absolutely must get into a street fight wrap yourself in the most purile libertarian and boomer talking points. Dont taint our thing with the bad optics. The point at this stage is to reveal the weakness and hypocrisy of the system. Getting footage of Antifa beating people in the street is good.

Uh, no. The real attack on the system is that it can no longer keep people safe. Andy Ngo getting beaten in the street is great footage of the basic civilization failing. You need to think bigger. The state wants diversity and the disenfranchisement of white people. Democrats are still a few elections from complete government control. That makes the system providing you water, a bank, power, and public security is your enemy and you should celebrate its end. Police will actively let you be beaten in the street is much better than DR3.

At this juncture, a better strategy is to increase cost/lower return. One tactic I heard of was taking a mail solicitation from an undesirable source, say the SPLC, begging for bucks with a free return envelope. Affix a brick to the return envelope and send it back. The SPLC then has to cover the postage. Why not “organize” a rally, get Antifa all fired up, and then no show? The first time, they will claim “victory” for having thwarted; the second time, they will look silly for falling for it; the third time they will look like Charlie Brown v.… Read more »

My understanding is that the Civil Rights movement worked because whites not near the riots only saw what the media wanted them to see. Since most whites dislike disorder and unjustified violence, they sympathized with MLK and company. The whites on the scene were intimidated by the violence, betrayed by the authorities, or made tactical blunders. Do not give Antifa a Target and they will find one. Say they disrupt the March for Life.

What drives these kinds of things (street protests) is a passion to “do something” and not just sit around whining. “Take action” is wired into our DNA, and that urge won’t go away easily. And “taking to the streets” is a popular option largely because it is a convenient way to find a fight; and for many, throwing fists is a great way to relieve pent up stress. A better (and smarter) way to relieve stress is to go for a run or chop wood in the backyard with a long handle axe. As a side benefit, the latter skill… Read more »

Trump won in no small part because he was funnier than the Sea Hag. The iron law of American politics is: Bugs Bunny /always/ defeats Elmer Fudd.

Well Mr. FBI agent, you’ll have to use your imagination. But as an alternative to violent resistance, read the article Drop Your Weapons—When And Why Civil Resistance Works by Erica Chenoweth and Maria J. Stephens. Nonviolent resistance can be more effective than violent resistance because: 1. Violent resistance can attract the wrong type of people into your group, people who would make very poor leaders if you succeed. 2. Violent resistance can be practiced only by military age men age 14 to 50. Nonviolent resistance can be practiced by everyone, male and female, from toddlers to the elderly. NONVIOLENT MOVEMENTS… Read more »

I would just point out that all this holds only under conditions of a media cartel firmly in hostile hands.

If – Big If – the stranglehold on the mass media is every broke (say by a Don Jr-headed Trump Network) nonviolent protesters getting beaten becomes an effective weapon with which to shatter the Enemy’s moral posture.

One of the main reasons the Liberal/Left has been so successful is years of patient steady work using very potent methods, tactics and rhetoric to achieve their goals. https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2014/04/antonio_gramsci_take_over_the_institutions.html sense the French revolution the dark side have had thousands of brilliant thinkers and millions of dedicated individuals striving to transforming the west into an ultra-egaliterian socialist paradise. In the mean time the liberals and American Christian Progressives built the bureaucracy that gave the people what they wanted, liberty and safety at the same time. ( Which is an impossible to achieve contradiction.) It also gave the left the infrastructure to… Read more »

What kills me is that these clowns walk around in the open. They barely bother to disguise their identities — there are lots of pictures of easily identifiable people out there on the internet, and of course the type of person who would go to an “Antifa” activity must, necessarily, post allllll about it on social media. They know the police and judiciary are on their side, of course, but one would think that they’d at least have *some* fear of being jumped in a dark alley by the “fascists” they claim are everywhere in America…. but they don’t.

America has already appropriated the German term Heimat for your own “Homeland”, so why not borrow our Freikorps and follow the leader*. 🙂

*You all know the translation for leader.

I know enough German to translate and make fan subs for a few old movies – if I have a written text to work from, or, in the case of “Der Tunnel” (1933) a French version which I’d already translated. There’s one scene where the heroic engineer, trying to build a tunnel under the Atlantic from New York to Europe, has to face down a crowd of rebellious workers. In his speech, he talks a lot about their struggle, using, of course, the word “Kampf”. My husband started making some cracks about that word, and I said, “It’s a perfectly… Read more »

I’m a bit old for protests and brawls in the street, so I don’t have a personal stake in this issue. The closest I came to getting involved in Antifa instigated street theater was the January 2017 inauguration on the Mall in Washington, DC. I had planned to attend with a sign that said something like “Deplorables Local #237 Welcomes President Trump to the DMV,” but when I turned on the television in the morning I saw the reports of harassment, violence and rioting and decided, yeah….no. If the Bullshitter in Chief were to win next year, I wouldn’t attend… Read more »

The once proud nation is in the process of being taken apart from within and is now flushed half way down the bowl. It can’t wait forever for the perfect time to react, as it may be too little too late.

I think Antifa numbers are very very small, just as so called white supremacists numbers are very very small. The whole act is empty kabuki theatre. I’ve never rubbed elbows in my neck of the woods in my whole life with either character. And I rub elbows with a shitload of folks daily. I think both sides here largely still live in mom’s basement.

Open public discourse of this manner should require all participants to be doxxed. Meaning no masks. This problem will vanish the second we adopt new laws that protect our citizens while protecting free speech. Yes, you can oppose but not while hiding your identity in the public square.

A number of states already have statutes on the books… Of course, Oregon is not one of them.

Then there is this federal statute which suggests those deprived of exercising their federal rights can sue?

The Salem Witch trials abruptly ended when the wife of the Governor of MA was accused.

Get antifa to attack their masters like say occupy Zucks mansion for immigrants and you’ll see a hilarious night of the long knives.

What people who attend these things are looking for is a way forward. There is a body of people who are restless And have a sense of urgency. There has to be a way to channel that.

I am an older dissident right realist. I have never once thought participating in street theater was of any value what so ever. That does not preclude me from wanting to shove my fist down the throat of the nearest antifa pussy I can lay my hands on. Believe me they are all pussies. Having realized Conservative Inc. was just another false avenue of recourse it was easy to move past their kowtowing idiocy. Conservatives? What were they conserving? Every issue needs to be looked at through a prism of realism. If not the idiots we are drowning in will… Read more »

It is unclear to me just how far along things are towards taking our particular show on the road. I have retreated from pretty much all media other than the few echo-chamber websites which I wholeheartedly agree with. I have a bad feeling that the tipping point will be some black swan event and then things will go rapidly pear-shaped then dangerously kinetic. As Ole Remus says, “Stay away from crowds.” It is a rather simple matter for the more destructively savvy of toothless hillbillies to cut power and transportation connections to the blue hives. Let the dazzling urbanites fight… Read more »

I was telling them this yesterday on forums and YT. These idiots just keep setting themselves up for failure. These guys are the first ones to disavow us. What I found the most triggering was how they were kvetching about a “journalist” (the gay Asian)being attacked. WHAT? Never stop your enemy from doing your job for you! I hope Antifa beats the living daylights out of as many journalists who show up to these things. One thing the right never seems to learn is that street protests are only effective if the media is on your side. There is zero… Read more »

What if there was a protest and only one side bothered to arrive? Imagine if hundreds of Antifa goons showed up ready for a fight and the only people there were cops, office workers and a few local journalists. With no boogeyman there to beat up and take the blame they would probably start attacking the cops and random locals. Then it would become the mayor’s problem real fast. Oh well, I’m seeing a bunch of people on Gab talking about showing up to the rally in DC ready to crack skulls or (more commonly) encouraging others to do so.… Read more »

Obviously Portland is a problem child. Andy unfortunately made a bad choice and he paid for it. He must have been separated and cut off from his people. Antifa, who was targeting him, made best on their threats. This is all very real theater and right now I’d say the majority of us are seething after seeing what was done to him and that old man. SOOO we have the event in DC coming up, and now tensions are going to be unreal. We are going to want blood and a win, and Antifa isn’t going to back down and… Read more »

“For those who feel compelled to attend public protests and rallies, there are a hundred ways things can go wrong and only one way things can go right. To realize the latter, a person has to be willing to take one for the team and capture it happening on video….Andy Ngo managed to do everything right. He showed up with a camera–no inflammatory signs, no taunting behaviors, just a camera–and he was criminally assaulted and abused.”

He has a point.

The so-called “antifa” are merely tools – they’re disposable tools. You can break one tool, another tool, and yet another tool until you go blue in the face, but taking out the tools does not discomfit the powerful who own and fund the tools.

Other tools are Democrat politicians, GOP cucks, so-called “mainstream” media, the Deep$tate.

Until the centers of $ellout power are identified, exposed, degraded, and discomfited, they will go on owning, funding, and deploying an arsenal of tools to use against populist/nationalist/Deplorables.

Marshall McLuhan said: ” Violence, whether spiritual or physical, is a quest for identity and the meaningful. The less identity, the more violence. ” So how do White people find identity without resorting to violence? First off, One thing I learned from traveling around the good old U. S. Of A. is that White identity is all over the place. Do you simply mean your a descendant of the people that built western civilization? If it’s that clear in your mind then your way ahead of the game. But human identity is rarely that easy. Which is why it always… Read more »

As we approach the event horizon, the greater the urge to grasp at the trivial. The violent riots and lawlessness that marked the final years of Obama’s presidency and the homeless hordes and sewage filled streets of coastal cities are only a taste of what’s coming. The cartels were only beginning to flex their muscle when 45 got into office. Once Trump is out of the way (and armed with fresh recruits from the south) it’s only a matter of time before they notch things up by degrees. They’ll make Antifa look like choir boys. Zman is correct, the present… Read more »
