Understanding the Charleston Church Massacre

roof1,292 words

On Wednesday, June 17, 2015, a 21-year-old white man, Dylann Storm Roof, entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, and killed nine blacks gathered for Bible study with a 45. pistol, then fled the scene. He was arrested the next day in North Carolina and returned to Charleston less than a day after the killings.

As a white person, I look down upon the criminals among us. I do not reflexively defend and glorify them. This was a terrible act, an act that was illegal under slavery, illegal under Jim Crow, and illegal today. I hope Storm receives a fair trial and just punishment, but that seems unlikely given the racially charged atmosphere in America today.

We obviously don’t know all the facts yet, but apparently the killings were racially motivated. Still, I can say three things with confidence.

First, this could not have happened in a homogeneously white society. I have no desire to absolve Dylann Roof, much less blame his victims. But he would not be a killer, and they would not be dead, if blacks and whites did not live in the same society. When different races are forced to live together in the same system, frictions are inevitable. These frictions give rise to misunderstandings, distrust, alienation, and long-simmering resentments, which flare up into hatred, violence, and social upheaval. Dylan Roof’s actions are predictable consequences of multiculturalism — as are the far more numerous racially-motivated hate crimes committed by blacks against whites, crimes which the establishment and media prefer to ignore.

Blacks and whites have shared North America for almost 400 years, and race relations are getting worse rather than better. If this were a marriage, we would have filed for divorce long ago. Thus the New Right stands for the principle of racial divorce. It is time for whites and blacks to go our separate ways and pursue their our own destinies. We stand for the creation of separate racially homogeneous societies, through the peaceful and humane process of redrawing borders and shifting populations.

In the case of recent immigrant populations, the best solution is for them to return to their homelands. I also think that is the best solution for groups like Jews, Japanese, and Chinese who have been in America for a long time but still maintain strong ties to their homelands. In the case of indigenous peoples and some older immigrant populations (including the descendants of African slaves), territorial partition would seem to be in order.

Second, we should resist dismissing Dylann Roof with the all-too-easy claim that he was “crazy.” Sure, he looks dweeby and autistic. Sure, there are reports of illegal drug use, which is often both an effect and a cause of mental illness. Sure, there are reports that he was prescribed mind-altering legal drugs as well.

But I am not going to simply disown Dylann Roof and label him “one of them”: one of those evil, crazy white racists who are fundamentally different from the rest of us, the “good,” “sane,” “tolerant” white people. For the truth is, Dylann Storm Roof is “one of us.”

By “one of us,” I simply mean that he is a white man, and all white people have innate ethnocentric tendencies, wired deep in our brains. We love our own and we fear strangers. As diversity increases, all of us will bear increased psychic costs, even those who pursue wealth and status by selling out their own people in favor of foreigners.

Roof and people like him may be nothing more than canaries in a coal mine: the first to sense the presence of a threat to the survival of us all. Roof may have just been abnormally sensitive to the terrible psychic consequences of losing control of our society to aliens: stress, alienation, anger, hatred, rage, etc. This heightened sensitivity might also go along with a whole suite of other abnormal traits. But we dismiss people like Roof at our own risk. For in the end, all of us will feel the same effects — unless we heed the warning signs and turn back the rising tide of color.

Third, Roof’s “solution” to his rage and alienation — killing innocent people — just makes the racial situation worse rather than better. There is no evidence so far that Roof was affiliated with or influenced by any white racialist group. But his actions certainly resemble those of racially-motivated spree killers like Anders Behring Breivik, Wade Michael Page, and Frazier Glenn Miller, all of whom are products of what I call “Old Right” thinking.

By the “Old Right,” I mean classical Fascism and National Socialism and their contemporary imitators who believe that White Nationalism can be advanced through such means as one party-politics, terrorism, totalitarianism, imperialism, and genocide. Today’s Old Right scene is rife with fantasies of race war, lone wolf attacks on non-whites, and heroic last stands that end in a hail of police bullets. Intelligent and honorable people have emerged from this milieu. But there have been more than a few spree-killers as well.

This kind of violence is worse than a crime. It is a mistake. It does nothing to advance our cause and much to set us back.

Given that reason, science, and history are all on our side, and the greatest apparatus of coercion and brainwashing in human history is on the enemy’s side, doesn’t it make sense to attack the enemy at his weakest point rather than at his strongest? This is why the North American New Right pursues White Nationalism through intellectual and cultural means: we critique the hegemony of anti-white ideas and seek to establish a counter-hegemony of pro-white ideas.

Only a fool picks a battle he cannot win, and we cannot win with violence. Fortunately, we don’t have to. The Left lost the Cold War but won the peace through the establishment of intellectual and cultural hegemony. We can beat them the same way, and we don’t have to all be rocket scientists to do it, since anyone of even moderate intelligence can make real progress by simply repeating Bob Whitaker’s talking points about white genocide.

Furthermore, the only form of violence that even has a chance to be productive in halting multiculturalism and non-white immigration would target the people responsible for these policies, not random innocents. Moreover, killing innocent people (at a place of worship!) has entirely predictable results. First, such violence creates sympathy for the victims. (Even I feel sympathy for them, and I would deport them all tomorrow if I had the power.) Second, it plays into the establishment narrative of evil, crazy, intolerant whites whose gun rights must be taken away.

So Roof’s choice of targets was superficial and frankly stupid. (Yes, he killed a state senator. But what are the chances that he knew that?) Was he even thinking about the greater good of our people? Or was he merely indulging in blind, self-destructive spite? And how exactly does praising repugnant killers help White Nationalists establish ourselves as representatives of the long-term best interests of our people?

I wish I could erect a wall between myself and the kind of unstable, undisciplined people who go on killing sprees, but you can’t change the world from a bunker. Thus responsible white advocates need to adopt the next best course of action: (1) we must be alert to the signs of mental instability and inclinations toward violence and rigorously screen out such people, and (2) we need draw clear, unambiguous intellectual lines between New Right and Old Right approaches.

I just hope I don’t have to do this often. But apparently it will be often enough that I have been able to dust off one of my previous spree-killer essays and merely change a few particulars.

    In fact, the SPLC has decided to pitch in and help, using the NYTimes:

    They are happy to help the White Genocide meme grow, so long as they can grow with it.

    Hopefully pro-Whites all over the world will take their cue from Dees and Cohen in that piece and realize that hammering the White Genocide meme is where the action is at.

    So much better than when media cued pro-Whites that nazi uniforms and nazi flags was where the action was at.

    It just seems to me that this is right out of a movie plot, perhaps penned for a nice Steven Shekelberg production. Evil anti-government White nationalist guns down innocent blacks in church, by the Gods it has the stink of Hollywood all over it. You can almost see these idiots trying to actually recreate the chaotic hell that must have been the Sixties. How interesting that Obama had a little meeting with Spielberg and Katzenberg almost immediately after the event, in order to discuss gun control.

    I don’t believe White Nationalists are the intended target for the anti-Whites from this event. My belief is that they will be coming for a full-blown attack on gun ownership and freedom of speech, and it’s just icing on the cake to continue to make swipes at White nationalists. They can feel their house of cards starting to come apart and they are just going balls to the wall and pushing every bit of agenda that they hope will collapse what is left of Western Civilization (please see transsexual and trans-racial productions that aired early in the month). I think it will have the opposite effect that is intended, however, which is why most of these evil clowns have their dual-citizenship to take them “home” should things get a little out-of-hand.

    It’s a good time, as others have already mentioned, to step out from just being a presence online and moving into real life activism. There are many ways to advocate for White rights that will not necessarily entail getting physically targeted by hate groups like Anti-fa, and our people have never been more ready. In fact, I think most Whites will be surprised how very sane and reasonable the sentiments are in that manifesto. If they can get beyond the expected White guilt for relating to those sentiments, we may be closer to deconstructing the multicultural Berlin Wall and ending the nigh 2000 year parasitic reign of terror on our people in a non-violent and permanent sort of way. Gods willing.

    Basically speaking, homogenous society = Utopia !

    I never posted on this website although I’ve read a few pages of it.

    I applaud Greg Johnson’s condemnation of this gruesome and awful attack. However I think to claim that racially homogenous societies would solve conflicts is being too optimistic. At times when the United States had an 80% white population race riots were not uncommon between different white communities. Take for example the lynching of 11 italians in NO back in 1891 or the 1908 anti-Greek riot in Omaha where a mostly Irish mob burned down the community neighborhood.

    Tomislav Sunic elaborated on this: “”In the Europe of tomorrow, in the possible best of all the worlds — even with the aliens gone for good, it is questionable whether the climate will be conducive to great brotherly hugs between the Irish and the English, between the Basques and Castilians, between the Serbs and the Croats, between the Corsicans and the French. Let’s be honest. The whole history of Europe, the entire history of Europeans over the last two millennia has resulted in endless fratricidal wars. This still applies to “l’Europe orientale”, namely “Eastern Europe,” which continues to be plagued by interethnic hatreds. The latest example is the recent war between two similar peoples, Serbs and Croats. Who could guarantee us that the same won’t happen tomorrow again even under the presumption that the influx of Asians and Africans would come to an end?”

      Racially and ethnically homogeneous societies are the best solutions to strife. Even ethnic diversity among Europeans is a cause of strife, which means that grandiose nationalist ideas of European unity are prescriptions for disaster as well.

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone assert that racial separation and homogenous societies would completely solve/eradicate conflicts. It’s safe to say that the human condition pushes people to eventually find conflict wherever they are exposed to other people, and where resources become less abundant and “diversity” slowly replaces homogeneity. It’s just that some races and combination of races in a single society are very adept at causing and creating conflict.

      The cases you’ve stated are generally pointed to as recent immigrant populations either being slow to assimilate or being perceived as refusing to assimilate. In many cases it was truly a clash of cultures and people not understanding the customs, but it was most certainly and obviously not a clash of races in most cases. Sure, there were some groups viewed as “not White” or “not White enough,” but that sentiment faded as those groups proved that assimilation was a value that they knew they must provide.

      There’s a reason you had to use examples of late 19th and early 20th century. That reason is because that was the time when the European immigrant population was at its height. The country was still young, still looking to establish a solid identity and assert its position in the world. It’s not surprising that there was conflict.

      What you conveniently fail to mention, however, is that after one or, at most, two generations, the lines of separation slowly faded and animosity toward various groups faded as well. White people simply became White Americans. Italians were able to assimilate. Greeks were able to assimilate. Irish were able to assimilate. There was still division and still small rifts between various ethnicities, but assimilation was achieved because White people inevitably have an easier time identifying with White people. For the most part, only the first stages of immigration were the most tumultuous and caused the most conflict, as things progressively improved as time went on. There were things like Italian streets and Italian neighborhoods, but we’re not talking about an ethnic identity that was in total conflict and clashing daily with the traditional WASPy majority.

      Compare that to the black and brown populations and you have something totally different. What you see with the black population is a group that really seems to make things progressively worse as time goes by and they become more entrenched in a society. No White area on the planet that I’ve heard of has an influx of black people and magically decreases its crime rate and improves race relations. They just don’t have the ability to amalgamate into a society to any great degree without falling behind and eventually blaming those ahead of them for their failures.

      What you see with the brown population is almost a perpendicular kind of growth as far as national identity goes. As they grow, they become less inclined to assimilate and pretty much try to steer things in a direction that will cement their racial/ethnic position in society as dominant and ultimately supplanting the current majority. More and more of them will now emphatically tell you that this is true. They don’t hide it. They don’t wan’t to be “American,” they want America to be more like them. Multicultural/Multiracial America Inc. agrees with them.

      You pose an odd question asking about a guarantee that there won’t be conflict in a more monolithic and homogenous society. Odd because you’re the proverbial cynic standing naked in a never-ending rainstorm with no shelter in sight, wanting a guarantee that should you choose a different path, you won’t be stuck standing naked in a rainstorm with no shelter in sight. How about a guarantee that this fantasy of a multiracial utopia will some day produce an ounce of proof that it does anything but degrade society and cause strife… can anyone guarantee that? I can start listing examples of more homogeneous societies producing more stable and viable nations, with much less animosity, crime and tension. I just can’t seem to find even one example of a multiracial society coming close to doing the same. But you want a guarantee that more racially homogeneous societies won’t ever find themselves in conflict? Like I said, really odd question.

    Let me pose a question to you. Money is chronically short in our movement. I know I could do a lot more if I had the capital to hire another full-time person. Contributing to a hypothetical Dylann Roof defense fund is basically pissing away money on a kid with NO FUTURE — a kid who THREW AWAY his future — when that money that could be better spent capitalizing our cause and making it more effective. Do we really want to send a message to ZOG that they can clean our movement out, and defund our own projects, simply by setting somebody up every couple of years (like Chester Doles, for instance)?

    I think it is, however, worthwhile to compile documentation that Roof’s beliefs about our racial situation are well founded. I want to thank the people who have contributed to it so far.

    I usually like what Greg writes. This is really no exception. But I do want to ask about something that may seem trivial. Since certain quivering lumps of flesh are too scared to actually address something not covered in Politics 101 or at Ma & Pa’s sociology shindig, I figured I would see if Greg could expand a little on his “I feel sympathy for them” statement. This isn’t directed at you, Greg, but more in your general direction:

    Should any innocent people anywhere in the world be gunned down, raped or assaulted in any way, whether they be in church, their home, a shopping center, or just walking down the street? Of course not. But why is that a question that you feel you must assertively answer as though you held a contrary position before this shooting? Why must you jump through hoops to repudiate a person whom you had no association with, and who, when presented with the fact that he had many black Facebook friends and black personal friends, was the antithesis of the type of racial separation that you claim to be a proponent of?

    Is the media going through its own little inquisitional process and having to incessantly explain its hand in creating a society full of racial animosity, and a society where law and order and civility are slowly eroded because they might offend the delicate sensibilities of blacks? Do any of the anti-White groups and people get put under the microscope when tens of thousands of victims of black-on-White murders and other violent crimes happen every single year? Is the pharmaceutical industry expected to atone for the fact that it has helped to create a drug-addled society full of zombies with homicidal impulses? That would be a resounding NO on all accounts.

    At the end of the day, you’re doing the exact same thing that many pro-Whites have always felt the need to do when facing opposition—go on the defensive and expend a great deal of energy trying to convince people that you are just like them, when what you should still be doing is trying to convince them that they should be more like you. How do you do this? Unwittingly, you do this by keeping up the narrative that “innocence” and “outrage” and “sympathy” are relative to how black the victims happen to be. It all comes down to how much you can focus on the rare occurrence of actual White-on-black crimes, while never getting even more vocal and incensed that the outrage against the more common attacks on your people is never reciprocated. You’ve convinced yourself that you are making positive PR moves and doing something groundbreaking by joining the professional Mea Culpa Club. As the years go by, you will slowly come to understand that indifference is probably one of the most powerful leverage tools you can possess. It’s right up there with empathy. Most people just have no idea how to use indifference properly, so they double down on the sympathy and empathy and hope they can ingratiate themselves to people that never cared about them before. This only works when you are squaring off against other people who don’t know how to use indifference. I can assure you that many of the anti-White architects are master manipulators and understand indifference better than you might believe you understand empathy and sympathy.

    To anyone who views sympathy as a reflexive characteristic or feeling that must given freely, then feel free to leak and gush until you’ve convinced yourself you’ve met the required dosage and that it’s actually helping your revolutionary idea to move forward. After you’re done, take a look at where you are on the socioeconomic and political landscape as a racialist and compare that to where the anti-Whites are. I can guarantee you that you will be in the same position of backpedalling and losing ground as you were the day before. Nothing will have changed all that much. Someone perceptive enough might even make a case that sympathy was strategically used to curtail your previous anger and throw a little water on that flame that was starting to grow brighter. As callous as it might seem, you might have been better off not caring at all.

    Frankly, part of the reason the pro-White sphere — I’m mainly talking about the USA — fails to organize is that it hasn’t learned to not care about things that shouldn’t matter all too much, and to unabashedly and unapologetically care more about what actually does matter most. Why do I care about some things? Because it’s the only way to save my people. Why do I refuse to care about other things? Because it’s the only way to save save my people.

    Unless someone is willing and able to detach themselves from the emotional/reactionary chip that has been indoctrinated and embedded into them since birth, then they really have no business pretending that they are capable of achieving revolutionary ideas in an atmosphere where only the most single-minded revolutionaries have gained ground. You either learn to accept the transmutation and evolution of emotion that is necessary for survival, or you just sit back, enjoy the spiraling descent and wait to die.

    The bottom line is that WE(pro-Whites) should be directing the narrative in what matters to Whites, not them(anti-Whites). Why is it mandatory for an entire nation to care about nine blacks being killed, like we are all Pavlov’s little project waiting for the right stimuli, while the entire spectrum of media, academia and government distorts reality in order to completely ignore the thousands and thousands and thousands of Whites being murdered and assaulted every single year? If we’re being all fair and equal and all that lovey dovey stuff, then shouldn’t not only Whites care about this obvious genocidal hypocrisy, but shouldn’t non-Whites care just as much? Can you name a non-White group or website that is geared toward shining a light on this truth? Probably not—I can’t. So if they have a tactical advantage by not caring when I care, then I really don’t have a logical reason to care when they care. The only logical conclusion one could make is that it is a weakness or liability as long as we are sharing territory.

      I think you are overthinking this. I said I feel sympathy for these people because I do. And I am not normally warmly disposed towards blacks. In fact, I don’t want to share the same society with them.

      But I know what you are worried about. There is a verse from the book of Proverbs 28:1: “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Meaning that men with guilty consciences seek to justify themselves even when nobody is asking them to. There is definitely a bit of that going on. For instance, I think Andrew Anglin protests a bit too much.

      But I also think we need to guard against being and seeming embittered. Bitterness is the tendency of damaged and angry people to basically switch off their moral faculties when confronted with the pain of others until the cosmos acknowledges their pain. Bitterness is basically a kind of neurosis, because bitter people lose contact with reality because their psyches are too scarred by suffering. Here’s an example of embittered, morally imbecilic commentary on this event from Age of Treason:

      Syndicated negro columnist Leonard Pitts on the Knoxville Horror:

      “I am … unkindly disposed toward the crackpots, incendiaries and flat-out racists who have chosen this tragedy upon which to take an obscene and ludicrous stand. I have four words for them and any other white Americans who feel themselves similarly victimized. Cry me a river.”

      Just as a reminder, he’s referring to the brutal torture, rape, and murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

      Psychopathy and animal-like viciousness are found even in the “smart’ blacks. They cheered when OJ escaped justice. They taunt the family members of murdered Whites during their courtroom trials. When Whites ask for a little sympathy from blacks, blacks mock them. They simply don’t care, not even when it’s White children like Autumn Pasquale who are strangled to death by empty-eyed, empty-headed negro animals.

      Cry me a river. That’s my response to the dead blacks in that church, as well as slavery, Jim Crow, and every other so-called “injustice” on our part.

    From a White Nationalist perspective if a person strangled a baby would that be classified as an act of evil? Or would the question of the baby’s ethnicity need to be established first in order to determine if it qualified as evil or not ? If this future White Nation is to appear in any real sense not just as an idea, what place will decency, compassion & ethics have in it ? Or are these no longer Aryan virtues ?

    The truth is that the people in our movement trying most to distance themselves from Roof’s actions are the very ones most responsible for them. Roof is really a victim in all of this, he is just a white man that wanted to do something positive for our race whereas those in our movement who should be directing the fears and desires of young white men to do something positive for their race are too busy worrying about page views, personal finances and maintaining a respectable image.

    If there is one thing WNs need to understand its that we will never accomplish anything without real world activism. WNs don’t need “eActivism” or “metapolitical frameworks” we need to meet and organize in real life. Going further, since America is such a large place, and since we need to meet and organize in the real world, we also need get as many activists to move to one region as possible (and anybody with any understanding of our situation will conclude that only the Pacific Northwest fits the bill).

    Again as a committed WN in his mid-twenties I have a great deal of sympathy for Mr. Roof. The articles written to give advice to young WNs that I’ve come across in the WN-sphere normally advise young WNs to build families and careers. Is this really what we want to tell our young committed activists, who want to commit their lives to the movement? Personally I think this is awful advice. Do we really want our most committed people to have to worry about sustaining a family? sending their children to multi-cultural hellholes? having their children rebel against them? working jobs which will sustain multi-cultural society? paying taxes which will benefit non-whites? and siphoning their time which could go toward activism working a job?

    I also would like to say that it is the moral obligation of all WNs to do everything they can to implement the 14 Words and bring a White Nation into existence as soon as possible. The sooner we accomplish this the more crimes we can prevent against our people, the stronger we can make our state, the more we can develop a culture uniquely our own, and the more white children we can bring into a world with a place for them. Every WN needs to ask him/herself whether their time is being spent productively and if not, how can he/she make improvements?

    This incident prompted me to go on the online-WN sphere for the first time in months. Years ago I reached a point when I simply grew tired of reading about the never ending list of horrors being inflicted on our people and the increasingly degenerate state of society and decided to try to do something about it. I would advise all WNs to try to find local people to meet with through the local stormfront board, through local WN organizations, and through militias. I’ve personally met many individuals and since I’ve started to become involved in real-world WN I feel far more self-respect and feel far more productive than I ever did when my WN activities was limited to typing behind a computer screen. So too would I advise moving to the Pacific Northwest, which I unfortunately have not yet done, since this will be the battleground from which we will secure the existence of our people and build a future for white children.

    Lastly, I think having public discussions over the internet is not very productive when it comes to talking about organization and strategy and so WNs should be better about dispersing (pseudonymous) contact information with their comments. Now that this incident has started to blow over, I’m probably going to go back into “hybernation” so to speak, but if anybody has read my comment and wants to have a deeper conversation about possible solutions and the NW strategy, feel free to contact me at [email protected].

    An interesting essay which echoed a few pithy comments that Greg has made over the years was written by on the harm that these loonies do (although they do all seem to be on anti-depressants?).

    The bit on why we don’t support our advocates the way our enemies support theirs was particularly good. Gosh, Greg, if you would only trim your beard and wear more sensible ties I might send you $2!!!!!!!

    Full text of Dylan’s ‘Manifesto’:

    I was not raised in a racist home or environment. Living in the South, almost every White person has a small amount of racial awareness, simply beause of the numbers of negroes in this part of the country. But it is a superficial awareness. Growing up, in school, the White and black kids would make racial jokes toward each other, but all they were were jokes. Me and White friends would sometimes would watch things that would make us think that “blacks were the real racists” and other elementary thoughts like this, but there was no real understanding behind it.

    The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case. I kept hearing and seeing his name, and eventually I decided to look him up. I read the Wikipedia article and right away I was unable to understand what the big deal was. It was obvious that Zimmerman was in the right. But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words “black on White crime” into Google, and I have never been the same since that day. The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong. How could the news be blowing up the Trayvon Martin case while hundreds of these black on White murders got ignored?

    From this point I researched deeper and found out what was happening in Europe. I saw that the same things were happening in England and France, and in all the other Western European countries. Again I found myself in disbelief. As an American we are taught to accept living in the melting pot, and black and other minorities have just as much right to be here as we do, since we are all immigrants. But Europe is the homeland of White people, and in many ways the situation is even worse there. From here I found out about the Jewish problem and other issues facing our race, and I can say today that I am completely racially aware.


    I think it is is fitting to start off with the group I have the most real life experience with, and the group that is the biggest problem for Americans.
    Niggers are stupid and violent. At the same time they have the capacity to be very slick. Black people view everything through a racial lense. Thats what racial awareness is, its viewing everything that happens through a racial lense. They are always thinking about the fact that they are black. This is part of the reason they get offended so easily, and think that some thing are intended to be racist towards them, even when a White person wouldnt be thinking about race. The other reason is the Jewish agitation of the black race.
    Black people are racially aware almost from birth, but White people on average dont think about race in their daily lives. And this is our problem. We need to and have to.
    Say you were to witness a dog being beat by a man. You are almost surely going to feel very sorry for that dog. But then say you were to witness a dog biting a man. You will most likely not feel the same pity you felt for the dog for the man. Why? Because dogs are lower than men.
    This same analogy applies to black and White relations. Even today, blacks are subconsciously viewed by White people are lower beings. They are held to a lower standard in general. This is why they are able to get away with things like obnoxious behavior in public. Because it is expected of them.
    Modern history classes instill a subconscious White superiority complex in Whites and an inferiority complex in blacks. This White superiority complex that comes from learning of how we dominated other peoples is also part of the problem I have just mentioned. But of course I dont deny that we are in fact superior.
    I wish with a passion that niggers were treated terribly throughout history by Whites, that every White person had an ancestor who owned slaves, that segregation was an evil an oppressive institution, and so on. Because if it was all it true, it would make it so much easier for me to accept our current situation. But it isnt true. None of it is. We are told to accept what is happening to us because of ancestors wrong doing, but it is all based on historical lies, exaggerations and myths. I have tried endlessly to think of reasons we deserve this, and I have only came back more irritated because there are no reasons.
    Only a fourth to a third of people in the South owned even one slave. Yet every White person is treated as if they had a slave owning ancestor. This applies to in the states where slavery never existed, as well as people whose families immigrated after slavery was abolished. I have read hundreds of slaves narratives from my state. And almost all of them were positive. One sticks out in my mind where an old ex-slave recounted how the day his mistress died was one of the saddest days of his life. And in many of these narratives the slaves told of how their masters didnt even allowing whipping on his plantation.
    Segregation was not a bad thing. It was a defensive measure. Segregation did not exist to hold back negroes. It existed to protect us from them. And I mean that in multiple ways. Not only did it protect us from having to interact with them, and from being physically harmed by them, but it protected us from being brought down to their level. Integration has done nothing but bring Whites down to level of brute animals. The best example of this is obviously our school system.
    Now White parents are forced to move to the suburbs to send their children to “good schools”. But what constitutes a “good school”? The fact is that how good a school is considered directly corresponds to how White it is. I hate with a passion the whole idea of the suburbs. To me it represents nothing but scared White people running. Running because they are too weak, scared, and brainwashed to fight. Why should we have to flee the cities we created for the security of the suburbs? Why are the suburbs secure in the first place? Because they are White. The pathetic part is that these White people dont even admit to themselves why they are moving. They tell themselves it is for better schools or simply to live in a nicer neighborhood. But it is honestly just a way to escape niggers and other minorities.
    But what about the White people that are left behind? What about the White children who, because of school zoning laws, are forced to go to a school that is 90 percent black? Do we really think that that White kid will be able to go one day without being picked on for being White, or called a “white boy”? And who is fighting for him? Who is fighting for these White people forced by economic circumstances to live among negroes? No one, but someone has to.

    Here I would also like to touch on the idea of a Norhtwest Front. I think this idea is beyond stupid. Why should I for example, give up the beauty and history of my state to go to the Norhthwest? To me the whole idea just parralells the concept of White people running to the suburbs. The whole idea is pathetic and just another way to run from the problem without facing it.
    Some people feel as though the South is beyond saving, that we have too many blacks here. To this I say look at history. The South had a higher ratio of blacks when we were holding them as slaves. Look at South Africa, and how such a small minority held the black in apartheid for years and years. Speaking of South Africa, if anyone thinks that think will eventually just change for the better, consider how in South Africa they have affirmative action for the black population that makes up 80 percent of the population.
    It is far from being too late for America or Europe. I believe that even if we made up only 30 percent of the population we could take it back completely. But by no means should we wait any longer to take drastic action.

    Anyone who thinks that White and black people look as different as we do on the outside, but are somehow magically the same on the inside, is delusional. How could our faces, skin, hair, and body structure all be different, but our brains be exactly the same? This is the nonsense we are led to believe.
    Negroes have lower Iqs, lower impulse control, and higher testosterone levels in generals. These three things alone are a recipe for violent behavior. If a scientist publishes a paper on the differences between the races in Western Europe or Americans, he can expect to lose his job. There are personality traits within human families, and within different breeds of cats or dogs, so why not within the races?
    A horse and a donkey can breed and make a mule, but they are still two completely different animals. Just because we can breed with the other races doesnt make us the same.
    In a modern history class it is always emphasized that, when talking about “bad” things Whites have done in history, they were White. But when we lern about the numerous, almost countless wonderful things Whites have done, it is never pointed out that these people were White. Yet when we learn about anything important done by a black person in history, it is always pointed out repeatedly that they were black. For example when we learn about how George Washington carver was the first nigger smart enough to open a peanut.

    On another subject I want to say this. Many White people feel as though they dont have a unique culture. The reason for this is that White culture is world culture. I dont mean that our culture is made up of other cultures, I mean that our culture has been adopted by everyone in the world. This makes us feel as though our culture isnt special or unique. Say for example that every business man in the world wore a kimono, that every skyscraper was in the shape of a pagoda, that every door was a sliding one, and that everyone ate every meal with chopsticks. This would probably make a Japanese man feel as though he had no unique traditional culture.

    I have noticed a great disdain for race mixing White women within the White nationalists community, bordering on insanity it. These women are victims, and they can be saved. Stop.


    Unlike many White naitonalists, I am of the opinion that the majority of American and European jews are White. In my opinion the issues with jews is not their blood, but their identity. I think that if we could somehow destroy the jewish identity, then they wouldnt cause much of a problem. The problem is that Jews look White, and in many cases are White, yet they see themselves as minorities. Just like niggers, most jews are always thinking about the fact that they are jewish. The other issue is that they network. If we could somehow turn every jew blue for 24 hours, I think there would be a mass awakening, because people would be able to see plainly what is going on.

    I dont pretend to understand why jews do what they do. They are enigma.


    Hispanics are obviously a huge problem for Americans. But there are good hispanics and bad hispanics. I remember while watching hispanic television stations, the shows and even the commercials were more White than our own. They have respect for White beauty, and a good portion of hispanics are White. It is a well known fact that White hispanics make up the elite of most hispanics countries. There is good White blood worht saving in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and even Brasil.

    But they are still our enemies.

    East Asians

    I have great respent for the East Asian races. Even if we were to go extinct they could carry something on. They are by nature very racist and could be great allies of the White race. I am not opposed at all to allies with the Northeast Asian races.


    I hate the sight of the American flag. Modern American patriotism is an absolute joke. People pretending like they have something to be proud while White people are being murdered daily in the streets. Many veterans believe we owe them something for “protecting our way of life” or “protecting our freedom”. But im not sure what way of life they are talking about. How about we protect the White race and stop fighting for the jews. I will say this though, I myself would have rather lived in 1940’s American than Nazi Germany, and no this is not ignorance speaking, it is just my opinion. So I dont blame the veterans of any wars up until after Vietnam, because at least they had an American to be proud of and fight for.

    An Explanation

    To take a saying from a film, “I see all this stuff going on, and I dont see anyone doing anything about it. And it pisses me off.”. To take a saying from my favorite film, “Even if my life is worth less than a speck of dirt, I want to use it for the good of society.”.

    I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.

    Unfortunately at the time of writing I am in a great hurry and some of my best thoughts, actually many of them have been to be left out and lost forever. But I believe enough great White minds are out there already.

    Please forgive any typos, I didnt have time to check it.

      I feel sorry for this kid. Like Breivik, he is obviously intelligent and informed. But then, right at the end, when it comes to the question of what to do, he leaps into the abyss.

        No point hiding from it now. The kid didn’t just act on a whim; he was a WN through and through. The Greg Johnson’s of the world may wish that “mainstream” WN stood for NANR ideals – and it may still do so – but for now the sad fact is that the SF/VNN/Pierce point of view is dominant among those who call themselves WNs. “Vantards” is all they may amount to, but it’s wilful blindness to deny the sort of logic that drives them.

          Perhaps we (NANR, Alt Right, Dissident Right, etc.) could have saved him or perhaps not. It’s true that some of the more salt-of-the-Earth types (not a value judgment) who are interested in White preservation of some flavor or another don’t care to partake in our intellectual musings. Roof may have been one of those types, but to be fair to them, I don’t think we should simply toss him in with that crowd and leave it at that. For one thing we can’t overlook the legal and illegal drug aspect, nor can we overlook the fact that Roof seems to have been something of a shut-in. These factors suggest some sort of mental illness/defect, whether acquired or hard wired. I’ll include snapping-in-the-face-of-adversity with mental illness, as it’s something akin to temporary psychosis.

          It’s true that some of Roof’s observations have a basis in fact, though on the other hand it appears he’s largely regurgitating things he’s read. In any case, his tragic final actions were nonsensical. Why target innocents in a church? Why take an action which is so obviously strategically counter-productive in terms of stopping White genocide? Who on earth could have thought for even a moment that doing something so idiotic and repulsive would trigger White people to defend themselves, rather than push them ever deeper into the bosom of the cultural marxist machine? Even if someone were determined to do violence (which I don’t advocate), wouldn’t even the briefest consideration result in such a person selecting a target along the lines of someone who’d killed a White person and gotten away with it? Again, I do not advocate taking such an action, but it would certainly seem more consistent with Roof’s grievances. Dismissing simple idiocy, only serious and true mental illness could result in the demented actions taken by Roof, regardless of whether there’s some objective truth in his alleged manifesto.

          While he had WN notions, he was a lone wolf through and through. He’s clearly not one of us, but that doesn’t mean that we should try to push him on anyone else. I don’t think that anybody but our adversaries would have thought that Roof’s insane plan was a good idea.

      If Dylann Storm Roof really did produce this manifesto, then what a loss this disaster is. Was there no-one to recognise his talent ? Was there no-one to help and to guide him ? Nothing but utter despair ?: no future for himself and no future for his people. Looking at the haunting photograph of his Police mug-shot, in better times surely every American family would have been proud of such a son ? And now he sits in a prison cell. All alone. And totally abandoned. What dreadful thoughts must be passing through his mind ? America, What have you done to your-self ?

      This comment is written by an Englishman, some fifty years older than your Dylann Storm Roof.

    Excellent text of Greg Johnson. The worst thing we can do for our Cause is acting like Roof. He was a product of modern world, where emotions dominate over rational thinking. People like him should read more Evola than playing stupid computer games.

    I agree with this article with one exception. If we had white countries of our own these incidents would be greatly reduced. Fratricidal wars, serial killers, pedophilia, bestiality, homosexuality, violence, drug and alcohol abuse will always be a considerable factor as long as Christianity is the dominant religion. An authentic racial religion promotes spirituality and cohesiveness; it does not destroy it. Christianity energizes and elevates the wrong kind of individual to power. Christianity has pursued a two-fold strategy from the beginning; it suppresses, diffuses, and pacifies white dissidence and it energizes, focuses, and militarizes non-white dissidence. In over 2000 years Christianity has not made a success that redounded to the benefit of the white race, nor has it committed an error that redounded to the benefit of the white race. Once is happenstance; twice is coincidence; TRICE IS PLANNED!

    That guy has an annoying name if I ever saw one. Were his parents retards? What’s the business of Dylan with a double-n???

    I’m not sure whether this would no happened if the USA was an all-white country. The choice of victims would have been different, but there is probably more about American non-culture that creates such things. School shootings have occured in Finland or Germany. They have become export articles, and come all along with the spread of Americanisation.

    Thinking of the Sandy Hook massacre and other spree killings where white people or people regardless of race of women are targeted, I wonder if the racial aggression is really that crucial a point in this case. Psychos pick all kinds of targets, harbour all kinds of obsessions to release their tension, and this guy got hooked on multiracialism dysphoria, and, well, “overreacted”. In the end, this has nothing to do with politics. From a political point of view it was the stupidest and most destructive thing one could think off. But again, I would not over-analyze it. This was definitely a pathological case, as sad and insane as it gets.

    all of whom are products of what I call “Old Right” thinking.

    I’d put it a little differently. I’d say these sorts of incidents result from the deplorable influence of the Willy Pierce school of race-relations, a chief principle of which is: race, therefore war. That’s to say, race matters, so kill everyone. If one buys into the Pierce school’s premises, if races, when you get down to it, are nothing but evolutionary competitors, if non-white existence cannot help but offer negative value to whites, then killing everyone is at least justifiable but more likely simply necessary. It’s hardly surprising that someone who thinks along such lines would eventually decide that he knows exactly what is required to advance his racial interests: start a race war!

    Also, Roof misjudged the circumstances. He wanted his act to precipitate a race war. Had he instead been aware that whites are already in a “race war” and have been losing it for decades – institutionalized anti-whitism is the order of the day – he might have acted differently. He might have realized that massacring church-goers would play directly into the opposition’s hands, supplying them with “proof” of what they’re so desperate to believe – that blacks are innocent lambs and whites are always and everywhere the guilty party. This is why the metapolitical work that sites like CC carry out is so crucial.

    Supposing some time in the near future a Dylann Storm Roof approaches any of the White Nationalist, Race Realist or Alternative Right websites and says, “Look, I am tired of seeing white nations lose territory to third world invaders, of our people being assaulted by pathological minorities, of the national media promoting the destruction of the white race. How can I do something constructive?”

    What’s the answer?

    Is there some organization out there which can mobilize such young people and have them do positive work for White Nationalism?

    Look at how the Left operates. They have fronts for students and for artists and for lawyers and for people who want to go to Cuba and harvest sugar cane. Heck, the Revolutionary Communist Party used to have a youth brigade which tried to enlist ravers who were disgruntled with crackdowns on dance parties. In other words, the Left has an organization, an apparatus if you like. The apparatus can channel otherwise destructive impulses into useful political activism. And there’s a payoff such as we see in the streets of Ferguson and Baltimore.

    But how does a Dylann Storm Roof join the White side in North America?

    As for the church shooting itself: whether Roof was a sincere white warrior who believed he was committing an act of revolutionary violence, a drugged up punk looking for a venue to rampage, or a MK-Ultra puppet on a mission from the Illuminati — who cares? Incidents such as this one take on lives of their own. The image counts, not the reality. Look at Che Guevara and Nelson Mandela. Both committed more than their share of terrorism. The Left turned one into a pop icon and another into the patron saint of brotherhood. It’s the beret, beard and slightly sinister grin that sell the t-shirts and have liberals sniffling over rainbow nations and unicorns.

    So it gets back to Dylann Storm Roof. Right now, there are a lot of people who are getting their ideas from the mainstream media. And judging from my conversations, they see him either as either (a) one of those crazed white supremacist gun nuts they’ve been warned about by the thought police; or (b) at best some armed loner on drugs.

    But the buzz which the media is creating can be exploited by WN. The issue of white resistance is now on the national table. People are receptive to ideas. The Matrix has been disrupted and there are those seeking the Red Pill.

    How about: this incident demonstrates why America needs to listen to the “voices” of real white people. Because if not, we may see more incidents like this, and we really do not want that, right?
    Or: let’s take a look at the statistics on who is committing a disparate amount of inter-racial violence (hint: it’s not whites).
    Or: why does the media cover up black-on-white crime but go bonkers over white-on-black.
    Or: since Roof apparently has the old Rhodesian and South Africa flags affixed to his jacket, let’s look at what has happened to white people in those countries ever since blacks got “majority rule.” And will that happen to you and your family when whites become minorities in their own countries?

    Orwell provides some mighty fine scenarios of how to switch public outrage from target to target, the enemy going from Eurasia to Eastasia in the click of a microphone. And it’s worth digging out that old tape of Wag the Dog and giving it a new look-see.

    Let’s see if this incident can be spun into building an apparatus. Let’s see the next Dylann Storm Roof enlist on the side of his fellow white people.

    You are right Greg, the South Carolina bloodbath was counter productive as well as criminally insane. We can advance our cause without using extremist language or tolerating mental defectives. Spending forty years in prison spaced out on Prozac, or being killed by the State, achieves nothing. We need writers and thinkers not assassins.

    Excellent article. I could not agree more on the narrative that we, as the new right, have to go about our mission by intellectual means primarily, and not by violence.
    But your sentence “Second, it plays into the establishment narrative of evil, crazy, intolerant whites whose gun rights must be taken away.” contains a bit more sinister truth than what seems to be your general take on the incidence.
    I do believe we have an enemy here that has manipulated Dylann Storm Roof into these actions. He may be a violent old right loner, but just as in Anders Bering Breivik’s case, I do not believe he operated alone. I think ideas like Mossad’s ‘war through deception’ is part of the backstage.
