The Counter-Currents 2013 Summer Fundraiser 
The Five Pillars of White Nationalism
& a New Matching Grant

fivepillars1,000 words

Counter-Currents has received another $2,000 matching grant. That means that the next $2,000 donated will be doubled!

Since our last update, we have received five new donations totaling $255. That means that our total so far is $23,959.30. Our goal is to raise $50,000 by October 31, so we are $26,040.70 away from our goal — almost half way there. Again, I want to thank all of our donors for their generous support.

Jef Costello’s heartfelt appeal and generous matching grant have both been inspirations. Kerry Bolton, Andrew Hamilton, and Juleigh Howard-Hobson have also penned their appeals. In the coming weeks, we will hear from Gregory Hood, John Morgan, Ingrid Zündel, Tito Perdue, and others.

Jef’s matching grant has also inspired another long-time Counter-Currents supporter to offer a $2,000 matching grant. This donor is particularly interested in encouraging work on The White Nationalist Manifesto, which I will write in 2014.

Translating Maurice Bardèche’s Qu’est-ce que le fascisme? (What is Fascism?) has inspired new thinking about this project. Even cartoons like the one above are useful for focusing on the essentials of what we are trying to communicate. What are the five pillars of White Nationalism?

1. Coolness: If the Left is characterized by hysteria, particularly moral hysteria, White Nationalism is characterized by coolness, in several senses of the word. First, we have cool heads. We can think things through rationally, calmly, collectedly. Second, we are cool in the sense that we are independent and aloof from the crowd; we’re rebels and non-conformists. We are immune to groupthink, dogma, and moral hysteria, which have massive components of fearful social conformism. What we think about the world and ourselves is determined by reality, not other people.

2. Realism: If the Left is characterized by denial of reality, White Nationalism is characterized by realism. They are, in a word, liars, while we are truth-tellers. We are realists about the races and the sexes: they are different, and justice and peace require that they be treated differently. Thus we are realists about equality: people are not equal, and only equals should be treated equally. Equality isn’t even an ideal for us, because ideals also have to be realistic, i.e., based upon reality and capable of taking on reality. We are realists about multiculturalism and multiracialism: they are recipes for hatred and bloodshed. We are realists about conflict and war: they cannot be eliminated without eliminating diversity, but they can be mitigated by giving different peoples homogeneous homelands of their own.

3. Free Thought: Because the Left is characterized by the denial of reality, i.e., lies, it also has to be characterized by thought control. White Nationalists arrive at our worldview not out of “ignorance”–which is what liberals call resistance to thought control and lies–but out of being unusually inquisitive and honest. We are free thinkers.

But does that mean we are liberals? I hope not. A society that is not founded on lies does not need to control thought. But if we manage to save our race, it will be establishing the hegemony of White Nationalist ideas throughout the culture. I hope that our people will never be so foolish as to allow the falsehoods that are killing us to ever take root again in our culture and educational system out of a foolish “tolerance” for liars who must and will practice intolerance against us.

4. Truth-Telling: Name-calling is just one way that the Left stifles free thought and free speech. As one of our videos of the day amusing illustrates, when name-calling fails to work, they start chanting slogans. It’s what you have to do when truth is not on your side. Truth is on our side. That is why truth-telling should be our first and last line of defense. This is one reason why we need to completely break with conservatives, “mainstreamers,” “implicit whiteness” types, and other game-players, for whom lying is always the first and final instinct. None of their lies and cutesie angles ever fool the enemy, not for one second. The only people they deceive are whites, who end up wasting their time, energy, idealism, and money on non-solutions. The hour is too late for any more such foolishness.

5. Rejection of Guilt: The nicest thing I can say about most Leftists is that, when it comes to their professed ideals, they are hypocrites: when you look at their families, friends, neighborhoods, and schools, they obviously don’t believe in diversity or equality. I don’t condemn liberal hypocrisy; I don’t complain about liberal hypocrisy; I don’t accuse them of being “the real racists”; I applaud liberal hypocrisy, because I reject liberalism, and it is heartening to see liberals rejecting it too. Liberals do project their guilt on others. White Nationalists reject that guilt, because we reject the underlying moral code that generates it: we reject equality and diversity as goods, so we are not guilty about living accordingly. We also reject collective guilt for the spurious or real crimes and mistakes of other whites. Finally, not only do we reject white guilt, we embrace white pride. For the truth is that whites, as a race, have much to be immodest about.

    “Coolness: If the Left is characterized by hysteria, particularly moral hysteria, White Nationalism is characterized by coolness, in several senses of the word. ”

    Really? What is this thing “cool”? Isn’t it a sort of physical and emotional (and anti-intellectual) posture from Negro jazz culture that entered popular culture through the Beats, and continued on with Blues and Rock and Roll? Ethnic Europeans are not really characterized by this quality of cool. Blacks and Latinos are more so. What does “cool” mean in a publication such as this, which tends toward the high brow, or the metapolitical? And anyway, there is plenty of craziness, or hysteria, within White Nationalism, and famously so.

      When I think of “coolness,” I do not think of excitable gibbering gyrating Jazzbos. I think of Spartan/Nordic reserve, self-control, and mastery of circumstances. I think of Clint Eastwood in Sergio Leone movies, or Jim Caviezel in Person of Interest. I think of charismatic aloofness and grace under pressure.

      And yes, I admit that the movement as it exists today is full of crazies and hysterics. I am putting the idea of coolness out there as an ideal that can serve as a corrective.

        I think you can wordsmith a better term than “cool” Greg. It has a connotation at a complete right angle to what this website is about. What term would Plato used to describe what you are meaning to communicate? Virtue maybe?

    I do like your five points, especially the rejection of guilt which I think is a the secularization of Christian guilt. A very clever manipulative ploy: we killed Christ ( always implied in sermons because we are so sinful) and a lovely segue into we killed the Jews. Therefore all whites are guilty of killing the Jews and everyone else because we are so sinful. I find it quite revealing the the new pope’s favourite painting is Chagall’s White Crucifixion which depicts the suffering of the Jews. Hello!!

    Quite an inversion of the traditional doctrine! Wasn’t it the Pharisee’s who wanted Christ dead?

      “the rejection of guilt which I think is a the secularization of Christian guilt”

      Personally, I’m not tortured by guilty feelings, I simply feel the pressure of dishonest accusations by the hegemonic anti-White lobby. But it amounts to the same feeling. That is partly why I need to read Counter-Currents and other blogs. It’s not enough to rely on my common sense, I need to know that I am not alone!

      Social pressure can make someone feel guilty for doing the right thing. Of course, it isn’t really social pressure, it is Jewish pressure masquerading as peer pressure thanks to the control of the media and other institutions.

      A very clever manipulative ploy: we killed Christ ( always implied in sermons because we are so sinful) The first use of this that I am aware of is in the New Theology Sermons by R.J. Campbell published in 1907 where by changing Jesus from a God to a man our betrayal of a friend makes us all a Judas. Furthermore, Martin Luther in his bible translation changed the description of Judas from that of “the son of perdition” to a “lost child” which rather softens the accusation to one that could include all of us.

      The fruits of the reformation are blossoming today with the new secular Pope Francis declaring that “The most serious of the evils that afflict the world these days are youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old.”

      The church has been penetrated, infiltrated and contaminated by our enemies as we slept.
      Don’t let them fool you.

    Greg: “Thus we are realists about equality: people are not equal”

    The statement that all men are born equal has always seemed absurd to me. Similarly, I don’t know what to make of the claim that people are not equal. Does it mean that not everyone enjoys the same social status? Or does it mean that some people are better than others?

    According to the dictionary: equal (Noun) = A person who is of equal standing with another in a group.

    It is true that some people are smarter and nicer than others. But the statement that people are not equal sounds arrogant, and it isn’t clear if that statement is made in order to oppose race-replacement, to justify income inequality among White people, to advocate the rule of the country by a small elite… Personally, I don’t see egalitarianism as a big problem. The problem today is not that democracy gives voting rights to stupid people. Actually, the more stupid White people are, the more likely they are to vote in a smart way, against race-replacement.

      Equality has a political meaning and a social meaning. One can be equal in a social setting without major disagreements and equal before the law. Politically, it is very different. There are those who are influenced by ads that target them and those who see that those ads are meant to influence their choices. Not many people nowadays will do the work to find out exactly what these politicians mean.
      I was appalled to discover the fatuous meaning of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It is all pie in the sky meant to assure Canadians that they have rights, but when you read it, one discovers there could very well be a hierarchy of rights and that is not stated. So, if you think your rights have been violated and you press it, some bureaucrat decides this, and there is no criteria given so that you can make an informed decision yourself. Who is this bureaucrat and who influences his or her decision? Oh, whatever is the current government’s ideology.

        That’s similar to the U.N’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A long laundry list of rights are listed and then taken away with a single clause stating that the above rights are subject to other laws and rights of others. Strictly alienable in other words.

        As the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights was largely drafted by the Jew René Cassin, it’s not surprising if a “long laundry list of rights are listed and then taken away with a single clause stating that the above rights are subject to other laws and rights of others.” Such declarations are social contracts drawn up by shyster lawyers.

        In my previous comment I should have noted that Cassin was a Zionist and therefore approved of Jewish racism, colonialism, and imperialism. So much for his commitment to universal human rights.

        The following passage from the Chinese writer Lu Xun, cited in Simon Ley’s article, “The Art of Interpreting Non-Existent Inscriptions Written in Invisible Ink on a Blank Page,” can also be read as a description of Jewish law:

        “Once upon a time, there was a country whose rulers completely succeeded in crushing the people; and yet they still believed that the people were their most dangerous enemy. The rulers issued huge collections of statutes, but none of these volumes could actually be used, because in order to interpret them, one had to refer to a set of instructions that had never been made public. These instructions contained many original definitions. Thus, for instance, ‘liberation’ meant in fact ‘capital execution’; ‘government official’ meant ‘friend, relative or servant of an influential politician,’ and so on. The rulers also issued codes of laws that were marvellously modern, complex and complete; however, at the beginning of the first volume, there was one blank page; this blank page could be deciphered only by those who knew the instructions — which did not exist. The first three invisible articles of these non-existent instructions read as follows: ‘Art. 1: some cases must be treated with special leniency. Art. 2: some cases must be treated with special severity. Art. 3: this does not apply in all cases.'”

        Jaego: “A long laundry list of rights are listed and then taken away with a single clause stating that the above rights are subject to other laws and rights of others.”

        Anyway, law courts no longer care all that much about the law. As far as I know, both in France and the United States, hate crime laws, which were introduced by the Jewish lobby, are used as a matter of course against White defendants, but very rarely against non-Whites who attack White people.

    My reflections about the cartoon above :

    I think there are two things in what we call liberalism/leftism. • First, it is a set of character traits. Leftist people are childish, self-indulgent, not very smart, and so on. It occurs naturally. Now and then, a leftist is born in a normal family, no one knows why. But the leftist personality may also have its good sides, like giving more time to idealist causes, helping beggars and stray cats, and so on. • Secondly, leftism is a set of political positions that are defined by the Jews and transfered to people through the Jewish media.

    It so happens that people with leftist tendencies are easier to brainwash and manipulate. So, it is difficult to say how much of their opinion really stems from their leftist mentality, and how much comes from Jewish programming. And it is hard to tell if the leftists are at heart conformists or iconoclasts. I think that most of their opinions really come from Jewish programming. Maybe leftist people naturally lack loyalty to their race, but it’s hard to see why they would support race-replacement if they were not encouraged to do so by the Jews.

    If we could expel all the Jews to Palestine, we would still have people with leftist personality, but they would support whatever the new White media encourage them to support. They would mostly be harmless, as they used to be before the Jews took over.

    The cartoon names 5 pillars of the Liberal Faith. But for example, hysteria is more a personality disorder than a political belief. In fact, the liberal faith doesn’t exist. The problem is leftist suggestibility and Jewish control. The Jews have a destructive political agenda, but the leftists don’t have any common agenda.

    So, the priority of White nationalists, armed with the truth and with common sense, should be to oppose the Jews, more than the liberals/leftists.

    Next year lets start the drive on the first of January and run it till the end of December. My reasoning being that a matching grant always seems to materialize. Secondly, as time goes by and counter-currents continues to grow eventually the $50,000 goal will be reached in a one year time frame then each year you will be able to gauge the growth of the movement by the continuously decreasing time frames. You will be able to show potential members clear evidence of our steady growth. As always long live counter-currents.
