Dov Bechhofer Did Nothing Wrong

Dr. Dov Bechhofer

3,105 words

Antifa in New York City have doxxed a White Nationalist, and this one is quite a find: an Orthodox Jewish doctor working at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx by the name of Dov Bechhofer. Bechhofer’s father is an Orthodox rabbi.

According to the doxxers, Dr. Bechhofer made a number of comments at Counter-Currents. In the article, Spencer Sunshine, an associate fellow at the think tank Political Research Associates who studies far-Right movements, is quoted characterizing Counter-Currents as “at the highest intellectual level of discourse in the white nationalist crowd.” The doxxers also claim that Dr. Bechhofer was Facebook friends with Jared Taylor and Peter Brimelow, and he ran a Facebook page called Supporters of American Renaissance.

According to the doxxers, the comments at Counter-Currents were simply signed “Dov” but made references to personal and professional details that match Dr. Dov Bechhofer. In these comments, Dov expresses dismay with miscegenation, supports the creation of white ethnostates through humane population transfers, supports the removal of Muslims from Europe, disdains Nazi LARPers, and even says that he understands anti-Semitism:

. . . I’ve had it in my head to write a little something called “A Jewish Defense of Anti-Semitism,” but it’s been slipping my mind. In short, the vocal majority of Jews act so irritatingly and display such reprehensible attitudes – publicly and privately – that I’d rather see a “tempered” anti-Semitism now than see Jewish perfidy continue without consequence until, as Johnny Cash might say, the man comes around. Because he will. As I frequently tell Jewish acquaintances, if there is another Holocaust, it will be entirely of their doing (I don’t get too into the genesis of the first one . . . I once tried, but mouths fell open and I was practically kicked out of the apartment). So, yes – I like to see (((them))) named and exposed where relevant. I would like to see a general boycott of Hollywood coupled with some Semitic realism. And I’d like to see the fanatical AIPAC supporters exposed as the dual nationalists that they are. Etc.

More than 130 comments signed Dov appeared at Counter-Currents. This was one of the last, and the first one that unambiguously states that the author is Jewish. Of course the name was a clue, and there were several other hints, but in a subculture where people use pen names like Demarcus Leibowitz, sometimes even going so far as to construct whole online personas, one can never be sure. But it never crossed my mind to stop allowing Dov to comment at Counter-Currents, since he struck me as intelligent, thoughtful, remarkably objective, and rather brave. Frankly, I looked forward to his comments.

I thought Dov’s views on many issues that divide White Nationalists were quite sound: He saw Hailgate and Unite the Right for the disasters they were; he opposed Nazi LARPing and the more juvenile and vulgar reaches of the Alt Right; he disdained crude misogyny and attacks on women who tried to help the cause; and so on. He also made it clear that he rejected race-war fantasies and sympathized with my desire to find paths to racial separation that are maximally peaceful and humane, respecting the basic human rights of all involved.

The name Dov also made it highly likely he was Orthodox, which was interesting to me, because since 2016, I have been seeing signs that significant numbers of Orthodox Jewish men in their 20s are plugging into the Alt Right and White Nationalism. This phenomenon bears watching, since it may herald a split in the Jewish community, which is the major impediment to white identity politics. Left-wing Jews have finally noticed and commented on this phenomenon as well, although their definition of White Nationalism is broad enough to include Donald Trump.

Although I have no patience for the conservative and Alt-Lite penchant for trotting out “based” minority outliers to shore up the delusion that conservative civic nationalism is possible, I recognize why the normie mind finds characters like Milo so fascinating. It does validate our ideas when outsiders agree with us, especially when their agreement goes against stereotype and petty ethnic interests. The basic thought process regarding Milo is: “He’s a gay race-mixing Jew, so if he is conservative, that must mean he has heard a compelling argument.” There is a world of difference between Jews like Michael Hart and Laurence Auster, who claim that Jews are white and seek to police anti-Semitism in the White Nationalist movement — and Jews like Dov or Gilad Atzmon, who do not try to alter our movement but instead seek to change Jewish attitudes toward white identity politics. None of them are “us.” But the former are subversives. The latter are allies.

So is “Dov” at Counter-Currents Dr. Dov Bechhofer? I was rather surprised that the Forward was willing to run with the antifa doxx without apparently considering the possibility that the comments at Counter-Currents were made by another individual, perhaps even the doxxers themselves, to frame Dr. Bechhofer. Of course the antifa did not contact me for verification. They are anonymous, so their reputations hardly matter. And they are judgment-proof, so they can defame at will. But the Forward has money and credibility to lose. Of course, if they did contact me, I would have said nothing. I do not discuss the identities of my authors, donors, and commenters with anyone, much less enemy combatants. I might well have lied, simply to throw them off the case. We don’t owe the truth to journalists and other antifa trying to destroy thought criminals.

On Thursday, however, Dr. Bechhofer released a statement which he shared with the Forward that confirms that he is indeed Dov from Counter-Currents:

“I am filled with remorse and take full responsibility for my actions, which will long be an embarrassment to my family, friends, colleagues, and community,” Dov Bechhofer wrote in a statement shared with the Forward. . . .

Bechhofer’s statement went on to denounce bigotry and violence and said he is “actively seeking long-term professional help to deal with these issues, which must be confronted honestly and completely.” . . .

“While I have much soul-searching and work to do on myself, I intend to take actions for the rest of my life that promote the dignity of all humanity,” he concluded.

This was a bad idea.

First of all, this is the United States of America. Bechhofer has the First Amendment right to think and say whatever he wants. The government has no right to silence him, and neither should private sector organizations operating under pressure from Leftist-orchestrated lynch mobs. The United States desperately needs federal legislation forbidding politically correct terms of service and employment, which are one of the Left’s most powerful instruments of suppressing dissent. If people’s livelihoods simply could not be threatened because of their political beliefs, the Left could howl all they want, but they would be impotent. The First Amendment should be a complete defense. And in the case of Bechhofer, New York State law actually bars his employers from terminating him because of his politics. Furthermore, he is entitled to sue anyone who organizes to pressure his employer to fire him for tortious interference with a contract.

Second, Bechhofer’s views as expressed at Counter-Currents and elsewhere are absolutely true. Truth should also be a defense in itself. The white race and white civilization are perishing because of low birthrates, miscegenation, and race-replacement immigration. Diversity is a source of conflict, not strength. The organized Jewish community has played a disproportionate role in creating this crisis and preventing racially-conscious whites from dealing with it. A terrible reaction is brewing. White ethnostates are the only solution.

Moreover, Bechhofer did not fall in with the juvenile buffoons, LARPing Nazis, and violent thugs who have hijacked the most important cause on the planet and driven it off a cliff. He gravitated to the best of the movement — Counter-Currents, VDare, American Renaissance — and tried to imagine humane solutions to this mess. He doesn’t need “professional help” to deal with “issues.” He’s one of the sane ones. It is the rest of society that has gone mad.

Dov Bechhofer has nothing to apologize for. Dov Bechhofer did nothing wrong. Except apologize.

If any of my readers are ever doxxed, I implore you to do nothing before you read Vox Day’s SJWs Always Lie. Or if you want a quick refresher, read my review.

Dr. Bechhofer is currently a radiology resident at Montefiore. He is just starting what could be a lucrative career after years of hard and probably very expensive training. He probably thought that an apology was the quickest way to make this fuss disappear so he could get back to his life.

But it doesn’t work that way.

As Vox Day explains, admitting to SJW charges and apologizing will simply cause them to renew their attacks. Before Dr. Bechhofer apologized, the entire “case” against him was circumstantial. Now he has admitted it is true. He is doing the enemy’s work for them. So why would they stop now? The next logical step is for them to demand that he be fired. And indeed, we learn in the very same article announcing his apology that:

Next Monday, the hospital will be the site of a protest calling for Bechhofer to be fired and have his medical license revoked, organized by a self-described “revolutionary mass organization” called SPARC.

Needless to say, Dr. Bechhofer should not resign. That too would be doing the enemy’s work. It would also allow them to hypocritically declare that they are not responsible for his downfall — he is. Instead, he should sue SPARC for tortious interference. It is very unlikely that his medical license could be taken away from him, but here too he actively aided his enemies by claiming that he is seeking “professional help” for presumably psychological “issues.”

It is not, however, too late for Dov Bechhofer to save himself. But he’s in a hole, so first he needs to stop digging. Then he needs to follow Vox Day’s advice, which I summarize as follows:

  1. Recognize the attack, remain calm, and realize that very few friends and coworkers will help you.
  2. Don’t try to reason with them: You are not dealing with rational people, but with raving beasts who will take every gesture of good will as a sign of weakness and will use everything you say against you.
  3. Do not apologize: Apologies are treated as evidence of guilt and invite intensified attacks.
  4. Accept your fate: Try to adopt a Stoic attitude of indifference about outcomes; focus simply on doing the right thing, which is to fight.
  5. Document their every word and action: Most organizations have rules for firing or disciplining people; know the rules; demand that they be followed; admit nothing; demand the accusers do all the work; get everything in writing, and get it signed.
  6. Do not resign! Don’t do the enemy’s work for them.
  7. Make the rubble bounce: Basically, this means counter-attack; do everything you can to raise the price of attacking you for your enemies and your employer. This is worth quoting at length: “Whether you survive the attempted purge or whether you don’t, it’s very important to observe who has defined himself as an ally, an enemy, or a neutral party during the process. The choices people make will pleasantly surprise you about as often as they disappoint you. Once everyone’s choices have been made clear, your task is simple. Target the enemy at every opportunity. Hit them wherever they show themselves vulnerable. Play as dirty as your conscience will permit. Undermine them, sabotage them, and discredit them. Be ruthless and show them absolutely no mercy. This is not the time for Christian forgiveness because these are people who have not repented, these are people who are trying to destroy you and are quite willing to harm your family and your children in the process. Take them down and take them out without hesitation. If you have any SJWs working under you, fire them. If you have an SJW relying upon you for something, play dumb and assure him that he’ll get it on time, then fail to deliver, all the while promising that it’s going to be done next week. Above all, understand that the normal rules of live and let live are no longer in effect. The more you disrupt their activities and their daily routine, the more difficult they will find it to purge you. Assume that you are on your way out — if you’ve followed the previous advice given, you should already have your landing zone prepared and are only waiting for the right moment to exit — and salt the earth. Leave devastation in your wake so that it will take weeks or even months for them to try to recover from the damage of your purging.”
  8. Start nothing, finish everything: Basically, don’t act out of anger; don’t initiate attacks, but when attacked, respond with disproportionate, overwhelming force.

Dov Bechholfer is going to lose a great deal because of this doxx. That’s why the enemy does this. Apologizing won’t change that. He needs to accept his fate. Then he needs to do the right thing, which is to fight. Because if more people fight and win, fewer people will have to face doxxing in the future. Dr. Bechhofer is going to go through hell. But if he does the right thing, he will help create a world where others do not suffer the same fate. And he will make himself into a hero in the process.

Beyond that, Dr. Bechhofer needs to recognize that not only will apologizing increase rather than decrease the negative effects of this doxx, it is also bad for his soul. Because he is lying. He didn’t change his whole worldview overnight. That is simply not possible. There are some things that we can control, and some things that we can’t. Dr. Bechhofer cannot control all the negative consequences that are in store for him, although he can mitigate them if he does the right thing. But there is one thing that he can control fully: his own moral stature. He has chosen to sully himself with a lie. He has abandoned truth in the vain attempt to regain social respectability. He needs to return to the truth and defend it. That way, no matter what happens to him, he can take solace in the fact that he preserved his moral worth.

When you are doxxed, it is natural to think of the friends you are losing. People will try to save those friendships, even at the price of their own moral worth, by issuing false confessions and apologies — usually in vain. His family might be furious, but if he stood his ground, they might eventually come around. The sort of friends who would abandon him over this will not change their minds because of an apology. And the friends who will stick with him won’t need one. Apologizing might effect one or two waverers. But it changes almost nothing. Certainly nothing that would justify the costs.

Doxxing victims seldom ask themselves about the friends that they might gain by standing their ground and fighting. It is still not too late for Dr. Bechhofer to dig in his heels. If he does, he will be surprised by how many people will offer moral, legal, and financial support — people within the Jewish community, free speech advocates, and even White Nationalists who will waste no opportunity to strike back at the Left. He will exchange false friends, who only liked him because they did not really know him, for true friends, who would like him as he really is, agree with his principles, and respect him even more if he stood his ground.

Many readers are probably wondering how Dr. Bechhofer was doxxed. How did his comments at Counter-Currents get connected to his real-world identity? Unfortunately, he made it easy. His Facebook page was apparently under his real name. Still, it probably would not have occurred to antifa to compare Dr. Dov Bechhofer’s social media profile with the comments of “Dov” on Counter-Currents unless someone who knew him tipped them off. I am pretty sure that Dr. Bechhofer was ratted out by one of his friends or acquaintances — perhaps one of the very people whose friendship he is trying to preserve by issuing a lying apology.

There’s a lesson here for a lot of us. Many people in their 20s and 30s have made their lives an open book on social media. Many who evolve intellectually and politically toward the Right have done so in public, documenting it before friends whose political beliefs are increasingly divergent. Every one of these people has a mental line that you cannot cross without becoming an enemy. A lot of these people, moreover, are incapable of making fine ideological distinctions. There are Leftists who think that Mitt Romney is a fascist, after all. Chances are, you crossed those lines with a lot of your normie-Facebook friends a long time ago.

Perhaps you are not as tempting a target as an Orthodox Jewish doctor in the Bronx. But the Moloch of the antifa, press, and mob requires fresh blood sacrifices. They’ll work their way to you eventually. If people who worked at hotdog stands could lose their jobs for attending Unite the Right, how safe do you really think you are? It could be only a matter of time before you become a target.

I know, I know: You can’t bring yourself to shut down your Facebook profile, even though you know that the longer it is out there, the greater the danger it poses. You don’t want to lose all the pictures, all the contacts, and so on. But the answer is simple: Keep your normie Facebook but purge it of political content. Make it your good boy page, so your mom and your schoolteachers can keep tabs on you. Then create a completely separate, bad boy Facebook page for your movement friends. And by completely separate I mean use a different name, different avatar, different everything.

According to the Forward article, “The doxxer spent six months investigating Bechhofer, and was in contact with people who knew him personally; documents shared with the Forward claim that the investigation included in-person surveillance.” It sounds pretty creepy, but you’ll be happy to know that our people do the exact same thing to antifa, because they too have shared their political journeys on social media, made elementary opsec errors, and unknowingly crossed the line between friend and enemy with many personal acquaintances, some of whom are now in our camp. We know where they live and work, too.

    Good article by Greg.

    It is disappointing that he caved in so quickly, and, as one OP suggested, submits himself to brainwashing in Sov. style as part of the apology.

    I used to greatly enjoy trolling Wikipaedia (on worthwhile topics where they lie), had fun and many laughs, also set off edit wars lasting for 48 and more hours.

    Also had a platform on a then-influencial different site, and several of the Wikipaeda ‘administrators’ were deprived of their ‘admin.’ powers as a result. Enraged more than one of their Central Commitee members.

    It was great fun and made me laugh more than a lame comedy.

    One of my comrades from those days, a very funny man in his writing, was in quite regular contact towards the end of the oppossitional site, he said, ‘I am glad that I was never posting anything that would allow people to doxx me’.

    My reply, yeah, sure, I am the same.

    He never said said anything offensive (well, sometimes, a little), just was frightened when the internal trolling faction was doxxing other people.

    So, that is one first principle.

    That is one of the principles.

    Don’t place people in a position to make correlations and doxx you. This includes personal meetings, although I have never met anybody in person that I first met on the ‘net. Would trust many here.

    However, I dodged a bullet (not literal) by not meeting someone from a different site in early spring.

    Another one is to use multiple distinguishable IP addresses, not appearing to come from the same address.space or place. This can be as simple as the combintion of a land-line and phone, or WIFI.

    The point is not to confuse the IP addresses on the same intrusive site (e.g., WP, FB, twit).

    I have always avoided FB and Twit altogether, but the simple principles I outline apply to both.

    Dr. Dov is still a jew. Once a jew, always a jew. Pardon the paraphrasing, but beware of jews bearing “semblance of sympathy/association/assimilation/etc”. They are not worth the risk of future heartache. One or more will turn on you (singular or plural) and betray you. They have a well deserved reputation for infiltration and betrayal.

    Bechhofer … said he is “actively seeking long-term professional help to deal with these issues, which must be confronted honestly and completely.”

    It’s often valuable to step back and observe how weird contemporary culture has become.

    In the old Soviet Union, dissidents could be diagnosed as mentally ill and forced into mental institutions for treatment. They didn’t want the treatment, and they knew that their anti-Marxist political opinions were not symptoms of mental illness. They didn’t want to be cured, because they knew they were not sick.

    Today, on the other hand, a rightist dissident whose opinions have been detected can exercise the option of confessing that he is mentally ill and volunteering for psychiatric treatment to cure him of his beliefs.

    What was once a Marxist punishment — namely, the Soviet state’s fake therapy to cure the dissident of a non-existent mental illness — has now become a device for evading punishment. Voluntarily declare that you’re crazy, subject yourself to treatment, and maybe your enemies will leave you alone. It’s as if a Soviet dissident in 1970 had showed up at a lunatic asylum and begged to be let in.

    Notice, too, that Dov is promising to seek out “long-term professional help.” This kind of severe illness can’t be cured in a month, and it can’t be cured by an amateur therapist. The sufferer needs years of high-quality psychiatric treatment to recover from so severe a mental derangement.

    Whether you believe long-term medical treatment to eradicate “racism” is sensible or laughably bizarre says much about your political orientation.

    I’m sure this is precisely the reaction the left desires, rightists huddled around a fire in the wilderness sharing ghost stories of the scary Marxists that are rumored to possess the power to get them fired from their jobs for thinking the wrong things.
    Surely losing your livelihood is no small thing and sharing some words of support for those who were actually unmasked is reassuring. What should be the focus however is not how unfair, petty and damaging the unmasking is, it’s making sure that such an unmasking doesn’t hurt to begin with. There needs to be a rightist manual for gradually and safely being ones true self openly, inoculating ones direct surroundings to your ideas so that they are tolerated, so that any doxxing would cause only limited harm. Instead of dodging a leftist weapon let it go flaccid and harmless in their grasp.

        “You should write that manual then, brah”

        That would be a task best delegated to a man of greater intellectual and psychological clout than myself. But the first step should be obvious, which is knowing that you are not a criminal for thinking the things you think. You’re really not. Second would be to then stop acting like a criminal as though we have something to hide. In the eye of the beholder, flinching in the face of an accusation implies guilt. The only way not to flinch then is to have nothing to be dramatically revealed. Our place of all people should be in the open, under the Sun and in the Light; it is the left’s place to skulk in the shadows. And by the way, not every open representation of rightist ideas need to be like Charlottesville.

        “Reality offends you, apparently.”

      Vauquelin:
      These are good ideas, but how to get there? Doxxing would only be ineffectual in an environment that has not been made tolerant towards such a childish outrage as telling on someone. Until such a time, to take proper precautions against the little mean dwarfs hiding in the hedges is the only path to follow.

    I’m glad I don’t have any friends who don’t know exactly where I stand on the issues of the day. Not interested in fair weather rejects.

    Sure you’ll end up with less “friends” but the ones you have will actually be worth a damn.

    I’m also a public employee with great job security so good luck getting me fired for wrong think. About the only way I could get fired would be if I tried to kill a co-worker.

    It amazes me to think that you do not include the internal dynamics of Orthodox Judaism (modern or Haredi etc.) as part of the doctor’s motivations. You advise him to back his words without taking into account the sanctions other Jews will place in him. For all of the pretentions of this site to being race realist and taking other cultures at their own values ( I would include the Occidental Observer before any of the other sites mentioned by the way), you essentially treat Dov as just another White American with all the individualism and choice and deracination that entails. I suggest that perhaps his apology and retraction had a far more simple explanation- that it is not acceptable for Jews to espouse White self determination even when demanding Such for Jews also. This basic lack of reciprocity is a hallmark of Jewish culture and fits well with what is known about their dual moral code. Simply put by treating Jews and Whites as being worthy of equal consideration (ethnonationalism) you are discriminating against Jews. I do find it amazing that someone of that background could come to these conclusions however (for me taking the red pill took a very long time and a lot of difficulty) and I do wish him well.

      That was my overwhelming reaction as well. He’ll be fine. Jews get many chances. Apologizing is him coming back into the fold. Roseanne Barr has played her firing up for all it was worth – about how she now had nothing and has been destroyed. She’s a Jew and she’s fine. The Tribe is divided on Trump – many high level ones love him.

      Never trust a jew. It is a great mistake to think that the ultra-ethnocentrism of that people does not include virtually every one of them. We simply cannot afford to gamble (what is left that is good for us anyway) our future on trusting that anything good at all for us will come from a people who view us as animals and unworthy of life. Remember that virtually everything that has been done to harm our people has come from the jew, regardless of our own possible complicity through being too nice, trusting etc.

      Oy vey, is this yet another jew jewing or a is it a jew confessing because he loves us?

    My wife recently underwent a similar doxxing experience with “The Housewives of White Supremacy”article published in the New York Times discussing a red ice interview she did in the spring of 2016.

    It was a pretty innocent interview discussing her journey from being a liberal in her youth to embracing traditional values and motherhood, but that didn’t stop the SJW’s from trying to organize a witch hunt.

    Several former “friends” tried contacting her employer in an attempt to get her fired. Luckily her supervisor had some integrity and didn’t yield to the pressure. It helps that we live in a rural area of the country that doesn’t take political correctness to seriously.

    Shes had just as many people reaching out in support as there has been hate mail, so it hasn’t been an entirely discouraging experience.

      I was gonna say, medicine in general, but particularly academic medicine is controlled by Jews of the vaguely neoconnish variety. Even if it came to something, they’d just shuffle the deck and whisk him off to some safe quarter when no one was looking. Everybody understands this at some gut level and no one would dare mess with them.

      That is a naive, ignorant assessment. Taking basic bitch memes and general truths about Jews and applying them without any critical examination is childish, and something that irritates me to no end. Unfortunately permeates right wing circles.

      It’s not as if he made some politically incorrect statement about blacks or mestizos. He has openly recognized disproportionate Jewish power and influence, criticized and legitimized criticism of Jews and their anti-white, anti-gentile behaviors. They’re going to come after him, and hard.

      If you were part of a highly ethnocentric tribe, how would you deal with those perceived to be traitors?

    Good OpSec is a must. All social media are now hostile territory.

    Do not use FB for any politics, as advised keep your profile anodyne.

    Do not make another profile as Zuck’s people are working on ‘decloaking’. Same for Twittter.

    Use a ‘secure’ browser and a VPN to prowl ‘questionable’ web-sites and clear cache every time.

    keep your normie Facebook but purge it of political content

    Proposal: after the purge start sharing content that is at the right edge of the Overton window of your current environment.

    create a completely separate bad boy Facebook page for your movement friends

    Warning: Facebook will recognize that Good Boy and Bad Boy are either the same person, or closely related, and will start offering Bad Boy as a new friend to mom and schoolteacher. They will click on Bad’s profile and immediately recognize Good’s speech patterns and typical spelling errors.

    The risks can be mitigated by tight privacy settings, e.g. not accepting friend requests, never making any post public, only commenting in closed groups (but these groups will show up as Suggested Groups next to mom’s news feed), having a dedicated browser for Bad activities with Privacy Beaver installed – and even then they can track you by browser sniffing, and ten thousand of people have clearance to watch you as you move around the net real time.

    Is someone has a lot to lose, a Bad Boy account is only good for following accounts. But then RSS is a much safer option.

    I hate to be so negative, but building up a fake online persona is not a viable project for most people. Also, what is the value of such a project for the movement? Unless someone is a brilliant content creator who temporarily needs cover until donations start flowing, people’s time and energy are much better used for building an independent IRL existence. Investing so much in a fake persona just to post comments, that are then filtered out by “quality control” algorithms, doesn’t look like a smart strategy to me.

      You’ve done a service there, warning people that it’s harder to keep two Facebook accounts insulated from each other, than one might think.

      Do this: buy a second Android smartphone, use its phone number to create a new Google account. Then create your “bad boy” Facebook identity, providing that Google account as your email. On this second smartphone, do all your browsing on 4G: that ensures you’ll be assigned IP addresses that are different from those assigned to your first phone. (Or use Wifi if you wish, but make sure it’s a coffee shop where you never ever use your first phone.)

      To save money, you can let the phone number on your second phone expire as soon as you wish; you don’t need it after you’ve established those new Google and Facebook accounts.

        +1 Never use your second phone to log in to any site with your “good” identity, e.g. you have an account at a sports/porn/shopping/whatever site, you log in, the Facebook advertising trackers attach on you*, next you navigate to Facebook itself, game over.

        Actually in the US even just visiting the same sites may expose you. In the EU it’s mandatory to display a privacy warning to visitors, and sites are not supposed to collect any information until the visitor approves the privacy settings. But of course people click on “approve” automatically, just to make the annoying warning disappear. And we assume that sites comply with the law, which far from certain.

        * The Privacy Badger catches most of them, but it’s not 100% accurate. The Brave browser has built-in tracker blocker.

    Serious question — what about simply lying? Why didn’t Dov just say it wasn’t him? If really pressed, he could even come up with a PR statement such as, “Why would a Jewish man who voted for Barack Obama and supports diversity comment on a neo-Nazi website? I am looking into a lawsuit against these lies.”

    Deny, deny, deny.

    If I were Dov, I would consult a good labor attorney, preferably one of orthodox provenance, and figure out technically what they will be able to do to him. The residency probably will not be able to fire him, but they can simply not renew your annual contract. They need no reason and can just arbitrarily not renew it. Don’t take an adversarial position to your residency or employer. Even if he gets kicked out, he will get into a comparable residency somewhere. Remove all public connection to any such thing(q.v.).

    Even before this episode, I’ve grown increasingly concerned about the young, bright, and attractive altright, dissident right personalities who have created public personas espousing these political positions. It’s very easy to get caught up in the thrill of the moment and group feeling, not thinking of the consequences ten to twenty years down the road. I myself, an old codger, fall into it, so I can understand the attraction to a young impulsive person. I worry that they are creating leaden albatrosses for themselves down the road, when they want to assimilate into society, which will sink the ship of any decent career. All these personalities will probably be in gulags and FEMA camps in twenty years, wake up and smell the coffee.

    My enemies are the only ones who think I’m deceitful, but when commenting, I change my handle regularly. I’ve invented several distinct personas to mislead Antifa and send them on crazed fools’ errands. I’m like the movie Split.

          For several decades my very favorite author. 🙂

          But yeah… it’s starting to look like alt-personae wind up being worse, when it comes to getting mobbed, than just using your real name, or a public handle (it doesn’t take much brains to connect me with mine) and owning your words from the gitgo. They’re gonna come after you anyway, so might as well respond in the vein of “Yeah, I said that; why do you hate $people?” Turn it back on ’em. When someone tosses you a live grenade — throw it back BEFORE it goes off.

          “You call us jackals? That is an insulting epithet!”
          “Only to one who is not a jackal. You need not take offense.”
          — from somewhere in the works of Jack Vance

    Pretty good tips from Vox.

    A jew can quite easily also say that he was following the stuff out of interest, without necessarily agreeing with the alt-right 100 percent. That way they can not fire him. Or if they do, you can sue them.

    Apologizing and cucking is the worst thing to do. That is a way to say that antifa is somehow in the right here. Antifa is not right. Antifa is anti-white terrorist group.

    Dov did this to himself. Few do online privacy right; we make our mistakes, some bigger than others (publicly available comments with a real name association is big), and hope no one ever takes an interest. This is a warning to respectable dissidents in the movement: protect yourself better, a step better today than you did yesterday. [Cue recurring commenter with link to surveillance self-defense website.]

    Well said Greg on not knowing the friends you gain from taking a stand. I hope Dov turns it around and embraces defiance; the apology and the groveling before his enemies is beneath him. It’s too late for him to save his respectability in polite society anyway.

    Dov’s situation also highlights the danger of the belief in a ‘peaceful transition’ to white sovereignty in our homelands. I’m not calling for Siege book clubs or fed posting, but what is the point of living for Tradition, believing in the warrior’s role in our return to simply having a real country, never mind the Golden Age, if we’re not pushing our people to live on a war footing right now? Realizing that war extends to all aspects of life and society, we must routinely and repeatedly drive the message that we live among our enemies, and they among us, and they will harm you if you let them.

    The open, public, and civil expression of WN views is available only to a few, some by choice and some not. For the rest: all war is deception. Our enemies today will dox you, and tomorrow they’ll shoot you. Give them nothing useful on your identity, beliefs, or family. Do the opposite if you can stomach it. Open expression is warranted only when it is a calculated move to advance the power of the group.

    Even now in the age of rightwing t-shirt merchants and half-baked social activists, the risks of public exposure are shown by Dov’s situation: career and personal ruin. We already do not live in peaceful times for our group’s beliefs; act accordingly.

    I am far too small a mouse to be doxxed, but this article and your advice are for all of us. Than you for your moral courage, Greg Johnson. It is in short supply these days. Thank you. Thank you.

      Nobody is too small to be doxxed or put on a list. It’s dangerous to assume that because you don’t v-blog, write essays, or sell merch today that you won’t be useful to the cause and dangerous to its enemies in the future.

      They dox ICE agents, waiters, hot dog stand employees, and even normie Trump supporters (calling them names etc.). There’s no such thing as too much of a small fry.

      You won’t regret good OpSec practices. They become second nature to you and you don’t even think about it anymore.

    I agree with the sentiment to leave absolute devastation in your wake. Be sure to name names and explain in great detail the nature of what happened.
