Hillary Clinton’s Speech and the AltLeft

oldmall

I was a guest on The Stark Truth to discuss Hillary’s speech about the AltRight(as well as Trump’s response and the spike in traffic to this site.) Another subject we touched on was the problem of entryism in these various movements. I had actually considered abandoning this site recently, until Hillary sent it a massive amount of publicity and suddenly it seems foolish to throw it all away. My girlfriend claims I have a “fear of success” since I’m always starting up projects and creating things, and as soon as they start to gain traction I decide to bail and work on some new thing. I remember an episode of Quantum Leap with Bob (((Saget))) I once saw that featured a similar theme. Also, I have a tendency to not promote something I’m involved in heavily, in ways that would attract a lot of attention. A big part of this is that I see the kind of attention *others* get, and let’s just say recognition seems overrated in many regards.

The term AltLeft itself may have been ruined by media people who do absolutely zero research on terms they decide to write articles about, as well as by random idiots who lack enough intellectual curiosity to do a “google search.”  Greg Johnson has touched upon this regarding the AltRight in a recent article.

I’ve always maintained it would be difficult for entryists to disassociate my ideas from the AltLeft because:

A. I own the domain altleft.com, so people searching for the term will always end up here. If you own the .com domain name for anything, whether it’s a bizarre ideological offshoot or a product, it gives you a “built in” market share. For example, if someone owns “turtlenecks.com” it would be difficult for competitors to say, “oh that turtlenecks.com site really has nothing to do with authentic turtlenecks, my site ‘Tyrone’s Shirt Mart’ is really the authority on turtlenecks.” If someone owns gold.com and decides to make a website that sells gold, you could never marginalize them from the gold market completely, even if you are able to confuse people. In other words, traffic will still arrive at this site, and what I can do with it is anybody’s guess.

B. This site was one of the earliest AltLeft blogs, maybe the 2nd one that was ever created and it even came with manifestos and outlines unlike whatever random tumblr stuff that may have been floating about. Robert Lindsay’s blog is the only one I know that came before this site, and he’s been at it for several years even before coining the term. There were a couple of national bolshevik groups on the chan sites and reddit that were using it as well.

As I’ve stated before, the problem with identities like “right” and “left” is that they’re not specific and mean many things to many different people. There are people who look at this blog and see all the anti-capitalist, anti-traditionalist, (mild)pro-degeneracy, modernist,  environmentalist, animal rights activist, anti-imperialist views and will say “I don’t see anything left wing there” simply because of my pro-white racial views. It’s the same when you hear conservatives say stuff like “we’re not the AltRight, we’re the real right or new right.”  Well okay, but whose definition of “right” are you going by? That probably means 50 different things depending on whom you talk to. Perhaps there is a correct definition, but the point is that  large swaths of people you attract have the potential to be easily confused by the ambiguity and breadth of historical contexts.

I think Robert Lindsay is accurate when he says that in a way, we are basically the left wing of the AltRight. Perhaps I’ll be reabsorbed back into it at some point or go off and do something else.

AltLeft in the National News

W e w lads!

Well, traffic to this site is booming after Hillary’s speech and the subsequent media coverage. I’ve noticed lately that a lot of oblivious idiots have started using the term “altleft” recently without bothering to google it or do any research as to how it emerged. It’s like they just wake up one day and start identifying as something without even checking to see if it already exists. The AltLeft originated with those of us race realists who rejected the anti-white social justice prioritization of the postmodern left and also understand that racial differences are real and acknowledge that multiculturalism transforms society in undesirable ways.

People like Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein are not “altleft” because they represent the dominant ethos. They parrot all the same social justice crap about “black lives matter” and promote mass immigration from the third world(which makes social programs, population control and resource conservation that much more unworkable.) Identity politics aren’t going away, and only whites think in terms of “colorblindness.” Other groups(with rare exceptions) simply work in their own ethnic interests unapologetically.  Demographics matter for the future. That’s reality, though we don’t all agree on solutions.

So before you go on Twitter and change your twitter bio to “AltLeft” or create another misinformed altleft facebook group, maybe read a few blog posts/manifestos here and on Robert Lindsay’s blog to get an idea if you really want to be associated with this label.

I’m thinking of joining a group blog that will be more like a literary/cultural magazine, rather than just politically oriented. I have a few other similar writers in mind that I will probably invite. My experience with “group blogs” before though has usually been that I’m the one who ends up doing most of the writing, and other writers contribute an article or two and then lose interest.

I think the left/right paradigm is mostly dead and meaningless at this point. I’d like to just get beyond all of it and just write what I think, letting the chips fall where they may. The problem I have always had, is that no matter how far to the left one is on most issues, if you’re a racialist they always call you “far right.” Or they will say you’re just “Third Positionist” or “Strasserite.” Yet, all the third positionists I’ve ever met tend to be hardcore social conservatives and cultural reactionaries. They combine social conservatism with economic socialism. There isn’t really a label for cultural leftism combined with economic leftism combined with racialism(although it is certainly a more prevalent amalgam than people like to admit to themselves.)  No matter what, if you reject racial egalitarianism and diversity, they throw you in with the far right. Of course, when I was part of the right, conservatives and reactionaries would always say “how are you right wing when you think people should be allowed to marry robots? and you are okay with sexual promiscuity and actually like 50’s and 60’s counter culture? how are you right wing if you like modern art? like do you even lift? Anyway you get the idea.

Is there room for a chic, left wing, futurist variety of “soft fascism?” Probably not. However, rather than dwell on unsolvable ideological equations, I’d rather just abandon labels and write whatever. I’ll be absorbed into something I suppose, even if it’s the abyss.

Postcards From Xenophobia – Black Pill Summer

I think Anatoly Karlin was right that social media takes away from productivity. Yet, at the same time, it’s only through these sites that I’ve been able to network and build a brand. There’s not much you can do with a brand like that though once you get it, if you are using various pseudonyms etc. In general though I think one of the things I’ve grown to dislike about Twitter is the way it exposes you to so many reasons to be pessimistic. I will list a few of realizations that make it a drag, this coming from someone who has made probably 40,000 tweets in the past 2 years….

  • You end up debating the same things over and over, both with the same people and a constant stream of new individuals fresh off the normie boat.
  • Most people don’t even understand the basics of “AltRight” thought or any similar ideas(AltLeft, etc) or movements. They come into these movements misinformed about core beliefs(usually being misled by some article,) not even grasping they terminology or lingo they start throwing around. It’s amazing to me how many people don’t know how to use simple insults like cuckservative properly(hint: Jews aren’t cucks) or understand the purpose of the (((echoes.))) That’s trivial of course, but also people don’t even know the origins of these movements or who the major figures are. There are people who claim to be AltRight that have no idea who Richard Spencer is and think this stuff originated with Milo or Roosh. I’ve seen people with AltRight in their usernames sporting Reagan avatars unironically.
  • There is constant misrepresentation of these ideologies by new people who are well intentioned but do more harm then good, because they accept the establishment’s framing of issues.(ie. “dems are the real racists,” “identity politics is bad,” “culture matters way more than race,” “democrats ruined detroit,” “fascism is inherently bad” etc)
  • Many people are oblivious to the JQ, even if they’ve been around a while. I could probably write an entire ebook on this, but why bother? I can somewhat understand people not getting it at first, because I was one of those annoying people just a couple of years ago that would be in Ramzpaul’s youtube comments being like “yeah the jews are fine. What’s the problem?” However, once you finally understand it you can’t “unsee” it, and it’s difficult to have patience in discussing it with people clueless about the premise you’re operating from(ie the reasons why racially aware white people view Jews with suspicion and the basis for it.) I’m not going to use this post to educate you on it. I’ll take a page from SJWs and tell you to “go read a book.” You don’t have to agree with it, but you’ll have an idea of what people are talking about.
  • Despite the media’s attempts to characterize the Trump  as some kind of white supremacist, xenophobic, neofascist, the Trump movement is far from that, and only vaguely civic nationalist. While there is a percentage of racially aware identitarians who support Trump, the vast majority of Trump supporters are just ordinary tea party republicans that are just abstractly against “the establishment” and hate the media. They might want to limit illegal immigration slightly and bring back jobs from China, but for the most part they sign onto the normal Reagan conservatism agenda(often even trying to claim Trump is the next Reagan as if that would be a desirable thing) They still watch FoxNews, and want to get tough on Iran, go bomb ISIS and so on.
  • I support Trump mostly for the fact that he’s the only candidate who seems to reject white guilt and the only politician running who supports preserving even the concept of the nation state. At least with Trump there is a chance the US might conduct policies in it’s own interest. None of the other candidates are even entertaining the idea. That being said, his choosing Pence was troubling because Pence represents the opposite of everything that is good about Trump.  Also, Trump’s pandering to the establishment republicans and the Cruzcucks has not been effective. They’re attacking him even more now and are “disavowing” him like there’s no tomorrow. Meanwhile, his attempts to pander to these people who hate him has cost him a chance at attracting Bernie supporters who are disenchanted with Hillary and might be receptive to Trump’s socially liberal instincts and anti big business rhetoric. Unfortunately, instead of going after the college and student loan racket, Trump is proposing massive tax cuts which no one that Trump needs to appeal to wants of needs. He could have said “We’re going to cut the defense budget, close down bases overseas and use the money to reform/credit student loans….but  he didn’t.
  • Finally, in the AltRight and various other edgelord sects, tons of people hate each other. There is constant drama between various individuals and factions. Often people get doxed and face the worst attacks not from SJWs but from people supposedly on their side or loosely allied. Tons of people are complete assholes and you wonder if we ever won anything whether you’d even want most of them as neighbors.
  • For people supposedly being “red pilled” or having science and logic on their side, in these movements I’ve seen some of the nuttiest conspiracy theories embraced, including “flat earth,” “symbols on money predicting attacks,” “moon landing was fake,” and “every shooting is a false flag.” I’ve even discovered people who claim that AIDS isn’t caused by HIV and is a result of poor diet, recreational drugs and health habits(sometimes with even the HIV medications  *causing* the disease symptoms.) Uh huh.
  • Out of probably 5000 thought criminals or “edgelord” accounts I’ve interacted with over the last couple of years, there are maybe about 30 or 40 that I consider to be reasonably on the same page, (not even necessarily ideologically in complete agreement,) just likable and with a similar outlook.  Whenever I find these types it is like a miracle and these often anonymous few have no idea how much their presence makes these activities bearable and worthwhile for me.

I could go on, but I suppose that is enough for now.
