Slavoj Žižek Does Not Write for Counter-Currents as Gregory Hood

Slavoj Žižek at his home in Lubljana.580 words

In response to hypothetical questions based on the following list of ten incredible quotes that Slavoj Žižek didn’t actually write, I wish to deny that Slavoj Žižek writes for Counter-Currents as Gregory Hood. Let’s nip this vicious rumor in the bud.

Greg Johnson
Editor-in-Chief

1. “There is only one important question facing us, and that is the question whether the white race will survive.”

2. “A woman can drive nature out with a pitchfork, but she just ends up living in an apartment full of cats.”

3. “True to their inscrutable natures, women ask questions they don’t really want direct answers to. Woe be the man who plays it straight — his fate is the suffering of the beta. Evade, tease, obfuscate. She thrives when she has to imagine what you’re thinking about her, and withers when she knows exactly how you feel. A woman may want financial and family security, but she does not want passion security. In the same manner, when she has displeased you, punish swiftly, but when she has done you right, reward slowly. Reward her good behavior intermittently and unpredictably and she will never tire of working hard to please you.”

4. “The masses are feminine. Academics especially so.”

5. “Forget all those romantic cliches of the leading man proclaiming his undying love for the woman who completes him. Despite whatever protestations to the contrary, women do not want to be ‘The One’ or the center of a man’s existence. They in fact want to subordinate themselves to a worthy man’s life purpose, to help him achieve that purpose with their feminine support, and to follow the path he lays out. You must respect a woman’s integrity and not lie to her that she is ‘your everything.’ She is not your everything, and if she is, she will soon not be anymore.”

6. “Civilization comes at a cost of manliness. It comes at a cost of wildness, of risk, of strife. It comes at a cost of strength, of courage, of mastery. It comes at a cost of honor. Increased civilization exacts a toll of virility, forcing manliness into further redoubts of vicariousness and abstraction”

7. “While the Zionists try to make the rest of the world believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Jewish state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindle, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.”

8. “Jewishness is a universal backstage pass.”

9. “Marxism rejects the aristocratic principle of Nature and replaces the eternal privilege of power and strength by the mass of numbers and their dead weight. Thus it denies the value of personality in man, contests the significance of nationality and race, and thereby withdraws from humanity the premise of its existence and its culture. . . . [Its victory] crown will be the funeral wreath of humanity and this planet will, as it did thousands of years ago, move through the ether devoid of men.”

10. “The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that the civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people.”

    I remember some time back Steve Sailer wrote that he considered Žižek more Mussolini than Stalin.

      “The most popular TV show of the fall of 2000 in France, with the viewer rating two times higher than that of the notorious “Big Brother” reality soaps, was “C’est mon choix” (“It is my choice”) on France 3, the talk show whose guest is an ordinary (or, exceptionally, a well-known) person who made a peculiar choice which determined his or her entire life-style: one of them decided never to wear underwear, another tries to find a more appropriate sexual partner for his father and mother — extravagance is allowed, solicited even, but with the explicit exclusion of the choices which may disturb the public (for example, a person whose choice is to be and act as a racist, is a priori excluded). Can one imagine a better predicament of what the “freedom of choice” effectively amounts to in our liberal societies? We can go on making our small choices, “reinvesting ourselves” thoroughly, on condition that these choices do not seriously disturb the social and ideological balance. For “C’est mon choix,” the truly radical thing would have been to focus precisely on the “disturbing” choices: to invite as guests people like dedicated racists, i.e. people whose choice (whose difference) DOES make a difference. This, also, is the reason why, today, “democracy” is more and more a false issue, a notion so discredited by its predominant use that, perhaps, one should take the risk of abandoning it to the enemy.” — Zizek, The Leninist Freedom

      He really does sound like “one of us” at times.

      Another good one that Zizek didn’t actually write, the little sneak.

    I think I recognize three.
    Two are from Hitler and one is from Sam Francis.
    And is the pitchfork and cats one from Colin Liddel?
    Zizek could do worse.

      Pitchfork and cats comes from Gregory Hood, hence my denial that Zizek writes as Gregory Hood, in case anyone asks.

    Why do you think Zizek plagiarized AmRen in a review of KMac’s Culture of Critique? He essentially claims to be lazy and have simply taken “a friend” at his word that he could use the passages without revision.

    I’ve even seen some claim that Zizek wanted to be caught plagiarizing these particular passages in order to get more exposure for the ideas contained therein. Sounds a bit far-fetched, but I’m wondering what you think about it.

      It took 8 years for the plagiarism to come to light. That alone makes me think that it was just a case of plagiarism. If he really wanted people to read MacDonald, he probably would have done more to that end over the intervening years.
