Reflections of an “Anonymous Coward”

golgo-13-top-secret-episode

If an HR department at any publicly traded corporation discovered that, under your real name, you had written(or merely even faved) tweets critical of Jews, blacks, immigrants, women, gays, trans etc. you’d be fired in two seconds. One of the problems with unchecked, transnational capitalism is that desire for money literally trumps everything. Big companies will sell out their own local communities, their people’s culture and even the security of the nation for a few bucks. Corporations care more about dollars than anything. Even when companies engage in diversity initiatives and philanthropic endeavors, these too are ultimately driven by profits. Though some people in the company may genuinely care about said causes on some level, the gestures themselves are still essentially just shrewd public relations stunts, designed to give the company a positive image and act as a force field to deflect any SJW criticism. A company will not knowingly associate their brand with anything or anyone that could even potentially be controversial. I myself was once denied a job at a solid ad agency on the basis of a few mild tweets(on my real account) that were uncovered in the final stages of the hiring/interview process. Lately I’ve been inclined to stick with more entry level positions where my visibility would not be high enough in a company to draw attention to any of my political activism. The current company I work for enforces a policy that “an employee should not take public political stands.” Note: they’re talking about any public political stands(ie “Obamacare sucks!”) to say nothing of the the controversial HBD and anti-democracy stuff we advocate for.

Anissimov argues that the problem the Right faces right now is anonymity:

The main problem that the neoreactionary Right faces right now is anonymity. Three years ago it was not enough people. Now, many, many new people are joining, but the vast majority are doing so under the cover of anonymity.

It is somewhat strange that he would be advocating these 1000s of people should boldly shed their anonymity, given that just recently he declared NRx to only be about 8 people, with the rest being merely fans. Why would anyone risk their job, just to publicly be part of a “fan club” or something which has declared itself not even seeking to be a popular movement. If it’s just a secret, small group of intellectuals engaged in a school of thought…why not just keep it a secret, who cares? What’s in it for the rest of us, “the fans?”

In my view, the problem with the new right isn’t that too many of us are anonymous. If 5000 reactionaries went public with their real names, then those people would be fired from their jobs the moment any one of their employers made the connection. All it takes is one SJW to locate your Linkedin account and fire off an email to your employer, and bam! you’re toast. No corporation will stick their neck out for a racialist. Let us not forget people like John Derbyshire were even fired from “conservative” publications, because they felt his(mild by comparison to some of ours) opinions were damaging to National Review’s image. We’ve even seen the likes of Roosh V get in on the PC thought policing act when it comes to protecting his profitable e-book brand.

Rather, the real issue is that we lack our own institutions.

This is where my friends and I work now. Be sure and let our bosses know how offended you are by our politically incorrect opinions.

This is where my friends and I work now. Be sure and let our bosses know how offended you are by our politically incorrect opinions.

Imagine if the entire company you worked for was run by and staffed throughout with “neo-nazis”, secessionists, monarchists, daughters of the confederacy, ethnonationalists or whomever. In such a scenario, if the SJW mob came after you, your bosses ideally would laugh their asses off. Again though, this brings us back to the issue of capitalism and it’s associated PC pressures(just look at all the problems SeaWorld has had.) Would such an organization survive all the bad crimethink PR in the present US environment? Would they stand by you? Maybe, maybe not.

So when should one go public? Financial independence should be the condition for using your real name. If you need to work for a company to pay your rent or support your family, you probably have to stay anon. It should be the goal of every new rightist to be able to reach a state of financial security when he can say whatever we wants and remain largely unscathed by any attacks from the outrage brigade. Anonymity, like other covert operations can be incredibly effective. One of the things that so frustrates SJWs is that they can’t stop anonymous people from commenting on current events, which is why they’re trying to force companies like Google, Yahoo etc to make people use their real name in comment sections.

Would the Vietcong have been successful had they come out and told everyone who they were before the Tet Offensive? And don’t say “but The Tet Offensive was actually a military failure.” Yes, I’m aware of that. From a propaganda standpoint it was an important psychological victory, though. I like the concept of our own metaphorical “Tet offensive” where we pick a date two or three years from now, a day of the rabbit so to speak, when out of nowhere thousands upon thousands of us come out using our real names, sending shock waves throughout the media. In the meantime we would slowly prepare and work toward being financially independent by that date.

Most of us would like to use our real names. It would be beneficial to me for sure. We just need to buy a little time. If for some reason we get doxxed and outed before we’re ready, the only thing to do at that point is just to “rock it” and charge full speed ahead.

Reactionary Pinball

1960s alice pinball art via eclectix2

Sometimes I feel a bit like a reactionary hitchhiker. Basically, when one increasingly finds he has very little common ground with mainstream political movements, his nostalgic trips down memory lane may eventually lead him to embark on a journey down “reactionary road.” This highway has many possible lanes and exits. He might find himself heading in the direction of the paleoconservatives’ front porch or the neoreactionaries’ castle, perhaps the libertarians’ weed farm, or the traditionalists’ homestead, the manosphere’s “No Ma’am” meet up, the radfem free bleeders’ pool party, or even the neo-nazis’ Antarctic base. Essentially, one metaphorically “hitchhikes” from one ideological group to the next, with each of them only willing to take him part of the way where he wants to go, and he never may never quite reach that sanctuary where the other escaped runners are waiting for him. Yet, that analogy doesn’t always work… because each group doesn’t necessarily incrementally get you closer to the group where you ultimately fit in. Of course, some people hitchhike with no destination in mind. They just want to go on a mind expanding journey and see where it takes them. For those that have an idea of what they’re looking for though, it can be disheartening. You just kind of bounce around like an idiosyncratic pinball, occasionally hitting spots where the machine lights up briefly(finally! these guys mostly believe the same things I do,) only to be blasted off in the other direction after dealbreaker ideological incompatibilities are uncovered.

So you might ask…why do you need to belong to a group or share a belief system with anyone at all? Well, you don’t of course…unless you want to actually organize with like-minded people and do something.

Reactionary Priorities

It’s unrealistic to believe it’s necessary to find people who agree with us 100% on everything in order to align ourselves with them. So it is sufficient to find people who are with us on our “top priority” issues. For me, I can narrow it down to two: ethnonationalism and futurism (atheism being a distant third.)

Allow me to offer up my own unique “reactionary pinball” trajectory as an illustration of this disillusioning dilemma:

It’s basically a given that as a racially conscious person and an isolationist, I don’t have a place in the republican or democratic parties. I’m an atheist, and a mild feminist so I don’t belong with the paleoconservatives. Though I sympathize with certain MGTOW criticisms about the nature of females, my race realism, mild feminism and dislike of barbarism disqualifies me from the manosphere(I sorta have grown to hate them actually.) Since I oppose warm body democracy, open borders and an unrestrained free market, I’m sure as hell not a libertarian. I also have no desire for what Heinlein called “back to nature cults.” I’m not interested in “homesteading,” homeschooling or living some kind of neo-Amish lifestyle out on the range. Beyond thinking that children should be raised by two heterosexual parents and that transgenderism shouldn’t be celebrated or encouraged, I’m not much of a hardcore traditionalist. I’m fine with kids watching Saturday morning cartoons etc. as long as they get off their asses, exercise and socialize every once in a while.  I’ve concluded that I don’t reject enough of modernity to be a neoreactionary. I’m not willing to dismiss every civilizational experiment humans conducted after the French Revolution as a failure. Hell, I even like a lot of mid century modern art(Gasp! talk about abstract horrorism!)and no, I don’t mean dumb stuff like “numbered cans of shit” or that girl who lays eggs out of her vagina…but I enjoy paintings like this.  Also, despite the trike, they don’t really want nationalists and constantly talk trash about them, parroting nearly every SJW cliche about nationalists being uncouth, white trash, skinheads, etc. It’s also hard to see why anyone would want to expend energy engaging with a movement only to be disrespectfully thought of as merely “fan club” members rather than lower hierarchy contributors. Moving on from that… Given what I’ve said up until now you might be wondering if I’m a communist. Well, although I do prefer communist music and aesthetic, I’m not a communist because I don’t care much about equality(economic, racial or otherwise) and I don’t care for the heavy handed thought policing and labor camps that go along with it. Also, contemporary communism is incompatible with my pro-white racial views. The Communist Party USA, like most of today’s leftist movements is fiercely dedicated to promoting diversity, radical feminism, open borders, the fight against global warning, and almost every other SJW cause under the sun. Practically the only ideological spot left for this ball to roll into is European nationalism/fascism. Yet even the neo-nazis and “White” nationalists are becoming overwhelmed with radical Christians and traditionalists. Based on a few of the tweets I’ve been seeing, some neo-nazis are becoming as prudish as Islamic fundamentalists. I’m also not really into Hitler or Nazi nostalgia(though I’ll admit it’s growing on me a bit.) The Italian Futurism and Fascism movement would have been my scene, but those dudes are long dead, and I can’t travel back in time. The nationalist parties which appear to be gaining popularity in Europe look awesome, but I don’t live there. The ideal kind of soft fascism I’d be looking to support would be a more space oriented variant, somewhat in the vein of Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers.

For now, neo-fascism is where I’m at, though I fully expect to get bounced around some more. Hopefully, I will at least hit some kind of ingroup jackpot bonus before the game tilts from my trying to force it, or I grow tire of playing…and the flippers fail to prevent the ball from going down the drain.

The Resistance to White Genocide is Made Up of Phantoms

Phantoms

According to the prevailing wisdom of the Cathedral and it’s politically correct “hivemind” allies, we’re nothing but ghosts. For those of us that are resisting “white genocide”(or whatever euphemism you wish to use to describe the systematic elimination of Caucasians and our culture from western countries, by means of forced assimilation and integration of people that didn’t ask for it, didn’t vote for it and don’t want it) the epitaph is all but written on our tombstones. Generally, rational people who believe the notion of a “white genocide” is absurd, are thinking in terms of people being marched off to death camps and dumped into mass graves, Pol Pot style, with creepy music playing in the background. But there is more than one way to destroy a population. It can be done by demoralization, through propaganda framed to make people ashamed of their ancestors’ achievements, mass immigration from vastly incompatible cultures, economic and government policies which favor breeding of certain groups, intimidating people out of neighborhoods through violent crimes. All of these things are currently being done to white people.

Not all of what is occuring is intentional, and some of it is just childlike naivete about human nature and a road to hell paved with good intentions. The result is the same though, whether you call it genocide, assisted mass-suicide or just a few hundred million dumb kids playing out in traffic at rush hour. It’s a massive reduction of people of European ancestry and the end of western civilization as we know it, slowly to be replaced by a hodgepodge of ethnicities from primitive and barbarous cultures. It’s the early stages of Heinlein’s classic, “Farnham’s Freehold” in the making. I ask you honestly, are the emasculated White man-servants in Heinlein’s novel that far from the ethnomasochist diversity officers we have today?

Farnham's Freehold, our future?

Farnham’s Freehold, our future?

If one is to believe the current purveyors of ethnomasochism and “anti-whiteism” are concerned, our demise is inevitable, resistance is futile, and we are destined to be relegated to the dustbin of history in order to make way for a new and more noble, third world population. “We’ve had a good run! Just enjoy the time you have left and soak it all in!”  seems to be the approach most establishment Whites of any stripe are wanting to take… just ride bikes, drink microwbrewed beer in Portland or Austin, reminisce about that time we put a man on the moon, take selfies while hiking, and try to gain social approval and higher white person status by appearing more apologetic for what our ancestors did to the Indians, Blacks, Japanese, Vietnamese, Nicaraguans, etc. In the consensus driven view of social justice warriors, our future history is as foregone a conclusion as Custer’s Last Stand and the massacre of his forces at Little Big Horn.

But what if it isn’t? What if we resist anyway and give Western Civilization the spirited defense it deserves? Maybe Kyle Reese was right in The Terminator when he said the future is not set. Perhaps our demographic demise is not inevitable, at least not everywhere. What if instead of listening to SJW losers and defeatists, we take the advice of Gretchen Ross in Donnie Darko and “go back in time and take all those hours of pain and darkness and replace them with something better”(which should be less difficult given that we don’t actually even have to time travel backwards at this stage in the culture war.)

“Only if you promise to stop taking me on such cheap dates.”
( deleted scene from Donnie Darko )

One of my favorite episodes of The Twilight Zone was “The 7th Is Made Up Of Phantoms.” That reminds me, can we please go back in time and get better TV shows, starting in the late 90s? A relic of the “pre-PC” television era, the episode is the story of three National Guardsmen in the 1960’s doing training maneuvers with their tank in Montana near the site of the famous site of Custer’s Last Stand. Somehow they mysteriously get transported back in time to 1876 and decide to join in the Battle of Little Big Horn to try to alter the outcome in Custer’s favor and thus change history. They are ultimately unsuccessful, and all three are killed in the massacre.

Their present day captain, distraught by their disappearance, soon discovers their names on the wall of the Custer Battlefield National Monument. He mournfully remarks that it’s “too bad they couldn’t have brought the tank up. It would have helped.”  One of the reasons I love this episode so much is that it celebrates our heritage without apology. There is not a shred of white guilt to be found in it except for the guilt they would feel if they decided not to take the chance and enter the battle.

Children today are taught that General Custer was a villain and the expansion in the west was a genocidal war against what can now only be referred to as “Native Americans.” A television show with the premise of three white soldiers traveling back in time and attempting to help Custer and the 7th Cavalry achieve victory against the Indians would never be allowed on network tv today. It would be a huge scandal and there would be boycotts, lots of apologizing, presidential lecturing and SJW hashtag activism galore.

Well fuck all that and the horse it rode in on.

What if we brought the tank to the battle?(metaphorically not like an actual tank.) If we utilize the advantages which largely have been historically unique to European people: science, technology, creativity, ingenuity, etc and combine them with our pioneering spirit, we may yet be able to alter the course of our future and preserve some semblance of our way of life. But first we have to wake people up to the real phenomenon of “white genocide,” or Western Civilization may become a ghost town .

How PC Overreach and Modern Black Behavior Radicalized Generation X Whites

rappinron

Remember that one sunny Saturday afternoon in the summer of 1985, spent riding through the suburbs with the windows rolled down in your mom’s Ford Fairmont, fresh out of just seeing Back To The Future, and in the background “The Power of Love” is blasting from the stereo? I’m sure you can recall such innocent times as those when you were opening up a few crisp new packs of 2nd Series Garbage Pail Kids or M.U.S.C.L.E. figurines while on your way to a friend’s birthday party at Chuck E.Cheese. Did you live for Saturday morning cartoons like Monchichis and Dungeons and Dragons? Are you nostalgic for those days and have trouble letting fond memories of a better world slip away? If so and you’re white, then by now you may be an evil racist like me.

Alex P Keaton wondering if Nixon would approve of him reading Vdare articles

Alex P Keaton confessing to Nixon that he’s started reading Vdare articles

I was never raised to be racist. Never in my wildest “Friday The 13th” induced nightmares did I think I would become one. Generation X white children of the late 1970’s and 80’s were brought up and educated in cultural marxist institutions that, while not as lockstep PC and gulag modeled as those of the almost universally brainwashed millennials, certainly did not encourage or promote racist attitudes on any level. There was a brief window in time from roughly 1975-1988 when young whites raised in that era were willing to embrace multiculturalism and a color blind society. I shall refer to this time period as “The Window,” and it’s symbolized I think by role models like Irv Cross, who exemplified what a successful post-racial society could look like. It was only when we began to realize that only whites were supposed to be color blind while all other races were encouraged to identify with their own race and advocate racial solidarity, that some of us started to get the impression we were being scammed. The image of blacks as illiterate thugs and violent degenerates was not one that I had as a child. It slowly materialized for me over many years and was a result of observations of actual blacks in action as well as a reaction to the way they themselves had chosen to represent themselves in popular culture. As a kid, I remember saying the N-word to a black kid only once, on the playground while we were fighting over a ball at recess in 1989, and he of course called me a honky, and we were friends again 5 minutes later. I don’t think I ever thought negatively about blacks in the generality, associated them with gangster stereotypes or had doubts about diversity until the early 90’s, around the time of The L.A. riots. Preconceived negative images of blacks already existed among many older whites of course, but the point is that in our generation they were not shared to a great extent, and their existence was actually perpetuated by blacks themselves(an indirectly by their ethnomasochist white enablers.)

Chances are, if you’ve ever uttered a politically incorrect sentiment about blacks or Hispanics, someone has responded with “you need to get out more and actually get to know these people,” as if you’ve never had a chance to experience the “joys” of diversity. It must have never crossed their mind that such experiences may have been the catalyst which induced your racism in the first place. Despite what black leaders and yuppie white liberals would have me believe, living in big cities like Los Angeles and being exposed to large scale diversity actually reinforced those negative stereotypes and exponentially amplified whatever minor ingrained racist attitudes I previously had, rather than erased them. That experience is consistent with Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam’s assessment of diversity in the contemporary classic, “Bowling Alone.” Even the most ethnomasochist white liberals(as well as some blacks!) aren’t stupid enough to walk around black neighborhoods at night and send their kids to predominantly black schools, if you look at their revealed preferences rather than listen to their phony idealistic catch phrases. When hordes of introspection lacking, feral blacks riot over one of their own being killed or hurt by police(often under ambiguous circumstances,) non-SJW whites aren’t thinking “Gee what can we do to understand blacks better or make them not want to act so angry?” Instead we’re thinking “Okay, I think I’m done with this diversity crap. Let them have their neighborhoods to themselves, and let’s put a stop to this before someday every major city looks like Mogadishu.”

After decades of being told diversity has been great for us, despite all the evidence being to the contrary(have Detroit, Oakland, Memphis, Gary, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Baltimore, Birmingham, etc. become better places to live since becoming majority black?) our antiquated, privileged, Generation X, Gobstopper fueled, 1980’s IBM supercomputer brains are beginning to learn the futility of playing the game at all, much like “Joshua” in the movie Wargames. We’ve been branded racist for life merely for being born white, and there’s nothing we can do except bend over and allow blacks to take charge and metaphorically screw us up the ass until they’re satisfied past injustices(real or imagined) have been redressed(though we are never precisely told when that will be or what specifically needs to happen.) With this being the “inevitable” future that social justice warriors believe we should embrace, is it any wonder Generation X whites are simply saying “Fuck it” and becoming openly racist? Without any significant defense representation against anti-whitism in the major political parties(John Boehner? I mean really…) former Alex P. Keaton, 80’s republican kids like me suddenly find ourselves flirting with cringeworthy elements of white nationalism…as it’s the only corner in the diversity maze left that isn’t openly hostile to whites. It seems we will have to be the ones to stand up for our people and attempt to preserve some recognizable semblance of the civilized, Heinleinian, space colonization bound world we grew up in.

"You don't want Salt Lake City to become as diverse as Oakland? What are you some kind of racist piece of shit?"

“You don’t want Salt Lake City to become as diverse as Oakland? What are you some kind of racist piece of shit?”

Next time some yuppie white SJW reptilian scum calls you a racist or tries to lecture you about “white privilege,” instead of cowardly pleading with them about you’re not some evil racist, and reaching for your dime store “I have a lot of black friends” amulet, just say “Yeah, so what if I’m racist? I’ve got some privilege for you to suck on.” If you haven’t yet, you should give it a try. It’s a liberating feeling I promise(making the statement I mean, not “sucking on my privilege.”) We have really reached a (less than) zero-sum game at this point with diversity. Not all blacks are criminals or bad people. Many of them are awesome and some are even more pro-white than most actual white people, but I’ve seen enough World Star videos and ridden the bus enough times to realize that living with large populations of blacks isn’t worth it on balance, and after the latest rounds of rioting and increasing instances blacks setting people on fire… it is an idea that in 2015 I am simply no longer interested in entertaining. If you don’t like it, feel free to find me a Delorean on Craigslist, call Doc Brown, and have him send me back to the comparatively sane world of 1985.

The American “Black Privilege” Check Card, Don’t Leave Home Without It!

blackprivilegecard

We all know that white privilege is a real thing. Caucasians tend to take certain intrinsic, institutional advantages they have for granted, such as having a dad in the picture, growing up in a civilized neighborhood, going to a private school, or even just being able to drive to the natural foods store late at night for some organic Rice Milk without being pulled over by the boys in blue. As a privileged white person, if you do happen to get stopped by the police for having a tail light out or something, you’re more likely to be let off with a wink and a warning rather than get your ass kicked and have some drugs planted on you like an oppressed black person would. You can even browse the local antique store and casually admire their collection of Ellsworth Kelly signed lithographs without some busybody shopkeeper following you around giving you the evil eye like you’re about to pocket a handful of Morgan dollars or something. Having said all that, being white isn’t always all it’s “crackered” up to be, and sometimes blackness comes with its own societal fringe benefits. Here are some neat perks you get with your Black Privilege card:

– The magical ability to set people on fire as well as completely demolish your own communities and still manage to blame the whole ordeal on systemic racism (and have prominent race hustlers and guilty white ethnomasochists make excuses for your behavior on the basis of ancestral injustices!) Some of the more stubbornly self hating, social justice warrior whites will continue to apologize and wonder what they wrongly did to provoke you even if they are the actual victim of your attack. Those that believe liberals can still be mugged by reality might be underestimating the extent cultural marxism has infiltrated the critical thought processes of status whoring millennials.

– A potential employer will be reluctant to deny you the job for fear that he might be sued for discrimination, even if you’re not the most qualified candidate. If a white male threatened to sue for discrimination, and the evidence was in his favor he would still most likely be laughed out of town with taunts like “Bahaha! Sue me for discrimination? You can’t be serious. You’re so oppressed haha, good one!” Of course, as an African-American, once you do get hired the threat of a discrimination lawsuit will make them hesitant to fire you, regardless of how well you perform the job. Nothing to worry about at, really, since big corporations value the positive PR that being able to show how diverse they are brings them so much, that they will be salivating at the opportunity to hire any halfway intelligent, well socialized black person.

– The ability to be loud and obnoxious on the bus without having to worry that someone will tell you to sit down and shut up because they will be terrified you might attack them if they say anything or even “look at you crazy.” This also applies to other public places, like movie theaters. As a bonus, some young white people will find your outspoken and aggressive behavior entertaining and charismatic, and  they may even try to mimic it when they’re with their friends.

– If you are part of a mob riot or even commit a horrific crime, it probably won’t become a national news story. If it does though, no worries as the news article most likely won’t mention what race was involved and instead will just report that the perpetrators were “teens” or “youths.” If some white privileged citizen journalist posts in the comments section that the attacker’s name was “D’Marquis” or something and discovers it was yet another black crime, that person will be shamed as a hateful racist by mobs of social justice warriors for having the audacity to notice the race of the criminal.

– If you get into a confrontation with police, even if you end up being killed or severely injured (and regardless of the facts or circumstances) you will be celebrated as a hero in the black community, as well as in high status, white ethnomasochist social circles. People will march, riot, and commit random revenge killings against innocent people, all in your honor. No matter what the truth about your character, you will be henceforth  be referred to euphemistically as a “gentle giant” or “aspiring college student.” If you look too thuggish or gangster in your most recent photos, the media will use cute ones from your 10th birthday party instead which will be guaranteed to tear at the heartstrings. You will even get your own Wikipedia entry edited from an SJW point of view..

– As an athlete, you can sound completely illiterate in a post game interview with a sports reporter, and if anyone dares to call you out on how inarticulate you are or they make some ignorant comment like “how in the world did this guy make it through college?” that person will be publicly shamed in the media and be branded a bigot for life. Most likely though, the young, starstruck, cultural marxism indoctrinated white female (or male) sportscaster will just want to be “down with you” and will be so excited about how “animated” and “passionate” your delivery is, they will completely overlook the fact that they couldn’t understand a word you said. No anti-racist would expect anything more out of you or think of you as capable enough of a human being to be held to the same standards as other races, as that would be offensive.

This a just a sampling of the dividends that having black privilege card can yield, but of course there are many more, like a woman just automatically assuming you have a large member, without you ever even having to whip it out or snapchat it to her. Unfortunately for white ethnomasochists, you will never be able to get a black privilege card. No matter how many times you read “To Kill A Mockingbird,” no matter much you apologize for slavery and Jim Crow, no matter how many “Justice for Trayvon” rallies you attend, or how many people you get fired from their jobs for having a politically incorrect opinion or making a racist joke, or how often you excuse their violent behavior in situations like the L.A. riots (or everyday for that matter,) most blacks will never see you as one of them. They may even get annoyed at your attempts to pander to them or act like you can identify with their experience.

In the end they will respect you more if you flaunt your privilege, embrace your heritage and respect them for theirs.
