The other day, I read an interesting article by David Cole over at Taki’s Magazine entitled “Prom Night Trumpster Babies.” It was the typical cleverness of Mr. Cole: starting with his anti-Semitic friends on the Alt-Right, seguing into irritating white liberal hipsters, and then to how stupid and ill-informed it is to make abortion the main reason for supporting Hillary, and then, finally, to how the Alt-Right may agree with Hillary supporters on abortion, but for completely different reasons. He brings it all home in the end. It was a good article.
But what really caught my eye was how Mr. Cole began his article:
I have to admit, I’ve never minded being the only Jew in a room full of anti-Semites. To be surrounded by people who sincerely believe you have preternatural inborn powers and abilities is actually quite the ego boost. When dealing with the segment of the alt-right that isn’t terribly fond of folks of the Jewish persuasion, I take absolutely no offense at any barbs thrown my way. . . . you’ve never been verbally fellated until you’ve been accused of being an evil, all-powerful, world-controlling demigod.
Hell, the alt-right won’t even let me cop to mistakes. When I tell some of my “fans” that, as a neocon, I supported the invasion of Iraq under a very mistaken belief that the outcome would be much better than it was, I’m always told, “Save them lies for the sheeple. You know damn well you Jews planned this whole thing — ISIS, anarchy, the refugee crisis, all so’s you can flood the West with mud people and build your damn ‘Greater Israel.’ Jews don’t make mistakes; they always know what they’re doing.”
So, is this how we really are on the Alt-Right? I know it’s not how I am. There is a big difference between abject conspiracy-theorizing about every single Jew you meet and simply noticing a pattern of Jewish political activity in the West which pulls entire nations pretty hard to the Left. That’s sort of like noticing that a large proportion of NBA players are black. It’s just true, you know?
I understand that correlation does not necessarily mean causation, but this Left-wing radicalism thing didn’t really get going, both in academia and the streets, until after Jewish emancipation in the 1870s. I mean, the Bolsheviks were not exactly Luddites in the way they used a coherent body of scholarly and political thought to justify what they did. And the Bolsheviks were disproportionately composed of Jews. So were the Mensheviks and many communist and socialist organizations throughout Europe and North America. Are we going to just say that this was all a coincidence?
Further, I think we can all agree that left-wingers in the West have been banging the drum the longest and the loudest to import the so-called “mud people” into the civilized world. It’s been that way in the United States since the 1920s at least. And many of the most influential of these left-wingers were and still are . . . you guessed it . . . Jews. In fact, the only place in the world in which Jews are predominantly Right-wing is in the one place in the civilized world where they don’t take in Third World gentile immigrants: Israel. Go figure that one.
So, if Jews were disproportionately responsible for Left-Wing radicalism in the first place, you can then link them to being disproportionately responsible for ruining Europe and America with Third World immigration. I wouldn’t call this a conspiracy, at least not any more than the way NBA franchises “conspire” to hire so many black players. But it’s not nothing, either.
Then again, Mr. Cole has a point. Why complain to him about how evil left-wing Jews can be? Given his history, he’d probably respond by saying, “You’re telling me!”
Anyway, this got me thinking about David Cole since he seems to be sui generis in the world of American Jewry. He’s a Holocaust revisionist who’s earned the enmity of Jews and refuses to apologize about it. He can also be relied upon for common sense conservatism and for sticking up for white people when it’s called for. He’s also pretty funny.
Yet, we don’t like him. He knows we don’t like him, and somehow I doubt that the feeling is mutual. I actually think he kind of likes us beyond any subconscious flattery we heap on hebes like him (sorry, but the triple alliteration — had to do it). In his article “The Day Reagan Yelled at Black People” he actually goes to bat for the Alt-Right a little bit. It seems he appreciates us for being conservative anti-establishniks and for dealing with issues that mainstream Republicans find radioactive. He just wishes that we were less . . . what’s the word . . . anti-Semitic?
No. Ironically, that he doesn’t mind so much. He just doesn’t think we’re being realistic when we pine for white homelands. He considers that part of the Alt-Right (a pretty big part, actually) to be wacky. In his words:
If the alt-right can put aside its wackier elements, it can indeed be an influential voice in this and all upcoming elections. . . .
That said, the influence of the alt-right won’t be limited by “the Jews” or any other shadowy bunch of conspirators, but rather by its own fantasists who seek to counter left-wing bullshit with right-wing bullshit.
Look, you wanna spend your days dreaming of the Northwest Territorial Imperative, you wanna devote your time to electing future gauleiters to administer Nueva Germania in the Rockies, knock yourself out. As long as you don’t go Buford Furrow on anyone, you’re only harming your own ability to have real-world impact. Because none of that North American white-homeland hogwash is ever going to happen.
Pick your battle. You can waste your life fighting reality, or you can embrace a little pragmatism and fight the left. Because the left can be defeated. Reality? Not so much.
Hence, we don’t like him. To quote a not-so-ironic lyric from the song “The Best Ever Death Metal Band out of Denton” by the Mountain Goats:
When you punish a person for dreaming his dream
Don’t expect him thank or forgive you.
The best ever death metal band out of Denton
Will in time both outpace and outlive you.
What Mr. Cole doesn’t understand is that just because we’re pushing for a white ethnostate doesn’t mean we’re not politically active. Who says we’re not an “influential voice in this and all upcoming elections?” Him? Is he saying that people on the Alt-Right don’t vote? Does he think that the rise of Donald Trump would have been as meteoric if not for race-realist Americans who are at the very least in synch with us? They would have to be to emphatically reject every other Republican candidate for the one guy who is not afraid to say politically incorrect things about Mexicans and Muslims. The one thing the Trump candidacy has taught the Alt-Right is that we are far more influential than we ever thought possible.
I think David Cole needs to double check to see who the wacky one is.
He should realize that no one on the Alt-Right is saying that a white ethnostate will happen tomorrow. This is not a short term thing. I, at least, view the Alt-Right as laying down the intellectual framework so when the white populations of America and Europe become primed for an ethnostate, they will have an easier time getting up to speed on what needs to be done. And what exactly will prime them? Picture descendants of today’s Black Lives Matter goons moving from killing cops to assassinating white judges and politicians — even liberal ones. Picture Mexican Reconquista mayors and police chiefs looking the other way as Hispanic gangs slaughter whites. Picture Islamic terrorists strategically selecting their target locations to allow for maximum white casualties — and then bragging about it later. I believe all of this will become commonplace in 20 or 30 years, and when it does . . . when whites lose faith in the system they created, they, our children and grandchildren, will fight back. They will find comfort and inspiration from writers such as Thomas Nelson Page and Lothrop Stoddard and J. Philippe Rushton and Sam Francis and Jonathan Bowden and Kevin MacDonald and many others (and, hopefully, from articles published on sites like this one). They will also resent us for bequeathing to them a world which will be impossible for them to control without civil war.
This is why I’m with the Alt-Right. If enough whites were to wake up to race realism and see Third World immigration for the invasion that it really is, all this trauma could be avoided. We still have the muscle, we still can deport the least loyal, talented, and productive non-whites. We can still make things difficult enough for law-abiding non-whites to encourage most of their leaving. We can still forge a good chunk of North America into a white-dominated ethnostate. We can still do the “Slow Cleanse.” As it stands, however, our logic is pretty hard to impugn. Here, follow along for me:
Axiom 1: Race realism is based on biological, demonstrable fact, with some races being inherently more intelligent and more moral than others.
Axiom 2: Third world immigration consists largely of less intelligent and less moral races immigrating to nations traditionally belonging to more intelligent and more moral races.
Deduction: As the numbers of these inferior races in these nations swell well past the fifty percent mark, they will exert immoral pressure on the superior races to distribute resources in their favor. They will also oppress the superior races in the immoral fashion they oppress their own kind in their home countries. We are seeing telltale signs of this now, and, unless something drastically changes in the near future, it will only get worse.
So, is the Alt-Right really wacky, Dave? Or are we just ahead of the curve?
This being said, I’ll go out on a limb a bit and admit that I do like David Cole. I read him. I learn from him. I enjoy him. Him and his world-weary, Ashkenazic wit. He may not grasp the big picture the way we do, but his control of the small one is solid and reliable. He’s also fearless, which is a rare thing. Most importantly, he seems to genuinely like white people. The Europhobic whiffs I get from Charles Krauthammer or Ben Shapiro, I don’t detect in him.
Really, if I applied to persons the inexorable logic I apply to peoples, I’d go crazy.
I look at conservatives writers the way I look at money. Sure, I like a fifty-dollar bill more than I like a five-dollar bill. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to throw away my five-dollar bills. As long as a guy is conservative and more or less honest it’s a net gain. Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly? One dollar bills. Ben Shapiro and David Horowitz? Fives. Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter, Ace of Spades? Tens. I know many of you would like to put Milo Yiannopoulos on the three, but really, he’s also a ten (and I’m sure he would think so too). On the twenty, I would scrub Harriet Tubman for John Derbyshire and Vox Day. Beyond that, on the fifty and the hundred, that’s where you would find your Jared Taylors, Peter Brimelows, Gregory Hoods, and others.
I would put David Cole on the ten. Until he realizes that the best-ever white ethnostate out of the west isn’t such a wacky idea after all, it’s where he belongs.
