The Counter-Currents 2013 Summer Fundraiser 
The SPLC Reviews Trevor Lynch’s White Nationalist Guide to the Movies

LynchCover2430 words

In the second week of the Counter-Currents Summer Fundraiser, we received nine donations totaling $1,412. Our total so far is $7,962. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by October 31, so we are $42,038 away from our goal.

Two of these donations were the first of monthly pledges, which is one of the best ways to help Counter-Currents grow. I want to thank these donors, and all of our other donors, past, present, and ongoing.

Counter-Currents’ Trevor Lynch’s White Nationalist Guide to the Movies was recently reviewed in the pages of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Report. One of the most ridiculous pretenses of egalitarians and multiculturalists is that they are purveyors of intelligence and enlightenment, when in fact their convictions require that they ignore, conceal, and lie about reality every single day.

But when confronted with a White Nationalist book that is obviously highly intelligent, SPLC reviewer Leah Nelson has no qualms about dropping her team’s posture of intellectual superiority and posing instead as an aggrieved dullard, complaining that Lynch “is the alter-ego of a tiresome and self-important fellow named Greg Johnson who runs a vastly pretentious website called Counter-Currents.com” and describing Lynch as “a consummate nerd and self-described ‘LOTR [Lord of the Rings] fanatic,’ he’s the kind of guy who finds himself at parties at which ‘Pulp Fiction’ is described as a film about ‘greatness of soul at the end of history,’ and who complains [. . . .] about ‘lowbrow’ appropriation of the term ‘postmodern’ . . .” Reading all the big words strewn liberally throughout the Lynch book clearly made poor Leah’s lips tired.

Of course the SPLC’s Intelligence Report is just a glorified fundraising circular, mailed out to donors to convince them that their money is being well-spent battling “hate.” And it works: at the end of their last fiscal year, the SPLC was sitting on an endowment of 223.8 million US dollars. Poverty is definitely where the money is!

I’m green with envy. Since Counter-Currents is doing a fundraiser, I will send an autographed copy of Trevor Lynch’s White Nationalist Guide to the Movies to anyone who makes a donation of $223.80 to Counter-Currents. (I’ll start sending out hardcovers, and when I run out, I will send paperbacks.) If a million people take up our offer, we’ll give the SPLC a run for their money. As they say in the movies, “We’ll show them! We’ll show them all!”

Or, if you just want to read the book at regular price, click here to purchase it in hardcover, paperback, or E-Book.

Thanks for your continued readership and support.

    That review was beautiful.

    You know I actually discovered William Pierce originally after reading a ludicrously-blown-out-of-proportion review of the Turner Diaries that was on the SPLC site about 2 or 3 years ago. It was the case with me that I stumbled upon their site out of boredom, and due to the sheer stupidity of the writer of the review (it seeming to be written for the consumption of airhead fashion students (Jiffy Pop and Chablis!?)) I decided to read the book for myself, and a few years later here I am; no longer wearing the intentionally disorientating rainbow colored lenses of political correctness…

    My own position on this kind of article (and the media in general when it comes to politically correct subjects) is to read it whilst bearing in mind Arthur Schopenhauer’s Die Kunst; and spot how fallacious it is. They rarely stop hitting the primary fallacies of;

    1) appealing to ignorance of the audience; because if someone god forbid is familiar with the subject that’s under attack and realizes how much of the subject is being willfully ignored in the argument, then the argument has failed to persuade and worse it’s shown up the attacker to be dishonest…

    2) the familiar old standby of endlessly yammering away talking about trivialities and making the occasional joke until the audience (or reader in this case) has forgotten about the subject under discussion. As Saint Jerome pointed out around a thousand years ago, “There is nothing so easy as by sheer volubility to deceive a common crowd or an uneducated congregation.”

    I believe Number 2 is best performed by a person or persons with high verbal IQ.

    If you want to demonstrate the academic manner in which public relations people or politicians on TV ply their sordid business in 2013, have people read Schopenhauer’s Die Kunst Recht Zu Behalten from 1831. That little book should be considered mandatory reading for the whole world as far as I’m concerned so that people can teach themselves how to spot dishonesty a mile away.

    The SPLC review may be bad publicity but it’s far from a convincing and credible argument. It’s going to have the opposite effect on a portion of people who read it… that is to say The Portion Of People who look for substance over style and are turned off by a dishonest review when they see it… in other words, the small portion of people left in the west with a working brain.

      I haven’t read Arthur Schopenhauer’s The Art of Always Being Right, but I have read Madsen Pirie’s How to Win Every Argument, which is a very entertaining overview of logical fallacies.

      As for spotting dishonesty a mile away, it would be helpful if Jews were compelled to wear yellow stars in public. As Goebbels remarked in Michael, “the Jew is the lie personified.” Goebbels also made some interesting remarks on the yellow star in his great article, “The Jews Are Guilty!”:

    Poor Leah. CC has to be really frustrating for her. Damn ‘nerds’ with their complex thoughts and vocabulary!

      DKD, plus her lips move as she reads! Now that would be exhausting for the poor dear, as would be stopping at each syllable to take a mental breath before moving on to the next syllable.

    I notice that Leah Nelson’s review refers to “swastika-colored lenses.”

      Pretty trippy stuff. Something must be in the water down at the Poverty Palace.
