Porky’s Pathological Altruism

porkys002bcopy

“I never seen so much wool. You could knit a sweater.”

So, on a nostalgic whim I decided to revisit the movie Porky’s (1981,) which I hadn’t seen since my childhood. Don’t ask me how I was ever allowed to watch this film as a kid. We had HBO in those days, and I was basically always off quietly doing my own thing by myself (when I was six I spent weeks attempting to build an airplane out of cardboard boxes and other random crap in the basement.) Anyhow, I pretty much watched whatever I wanted, and no one cared. It was the early 80’s after all…when toy machine guns still looked real and helicopter parenting hadn’t yet taken off.

Porky’s is a screwball coming of age teen comedy set in a 1950’s Florida town. I’m not going to write a full review here, but it’s another of those “80’s nostalgia for the 50’s” movies that were so prevalent at that time. The film basically chronicles the misadventures of a group of horny teenage guys. A lot of the gags haven’t really aged well, but there are a few memorable funny scenes if you can appreciate bottom of the barrel toilet humor. The movie also is notable for featuring a young Kim Cattrall in one of her sexiest roles.

The most annoying thing about this movie is the way they shoe horn in an unnecessary anti-racist subplot. The way it is done comes off as utterly forced. It’s also ironic in how in its anti-racist message it manages to reinforce stereotypes of Jews, Blacks and southern Whites by caricaturing pretty much every type of person in the most archetypal depiction possible. Even the “racist” teen in the film conforms to every cliche. Of course he couldn’t be “racist” because of something like noticing patterns of behavior that he perceives to appear disproportionately among certain groups or due to a string of unpleasant encounters or experiences when engaging with hostile people from other races. No, in the film, the character’s racism is a result of him being physically and verbally abused by his drunken white trash father. Give me a break. Even openly anti-white propaganda films like “American History X” at least made some effort to illustrate some of the legitimate concerns of whites that lead them down this path. Then again, Porky’s is not meant to be a serious film on any level, so it’s understandable but also kind of a boner killer that this was thrown in to an otherwise fun movie.

There is a significance to why I bring up the anti-racist subplot of Porky’s though. The director and writer of Porky’s, Bob Clark felt he needed to make a point to take a swipe at the bogeyman of racist southern white rednecks. Tragically, Clark and his son were killed by an illegal alien drunk driver in 2007 in California. The very sort of white nativist people he railed against as dangerous and misguided were the ones advocating the restrictive immigration policies that could have prevented his own child’s death (sounds familiar.)

From Wikipedia:

Clark and his son, Ariel Hanrath-Clark, 22, were killed in a head-on car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles on the morning of April 4, 2007. The crash occurred when an SUV crossed the median and struck Clark’s Infiniti I30, causing the closure of the highway for eight hours. Police determined that the SUV’s driver, Hector Velazquez-Nava, had a blood alcohol level of three times the legal limit and was driving without a license. He initially pleaded not guilty to two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter, but changed his plea to no contest in August. On October 12, 2007, Velasquez-Nava was sentenced to six years in prison under the terms of a plea agreement. In addition, he may face deportation to his native Mexico, as he entered and was living in the United States illegally.

Wow, 6 years and he may face deportation. One wonders what it actually does take to get deported, if the above horrific crime only results in a maybe.

In Bob Clark’s quest to virtue signal and show he was “one of the good whites,” did he kill the wrong pig? Porky’s a fun throwback to both the 80’s and the 50’s. It spawned a couple of shitty sequels like Porky’s: The Next Day, and Porky’s Revenge. It’s a shame Clark never to see Porky’s Pathological Altruism, the final chapter he wrote for himself and his (our) descendants.

The recent controversy over “fake news” has somewhat reminded me how much closer I am to people in the rationalist / skeptic community than some elements (not all) of the AltRight on certain issues. If not for my skepticism of the prospects (or desirability) of multiculturalism in Western countries and the long term viability of “warm body” democracy in general, I would have much more in common with people like Amazing Atheist and Shoe0nhead than I would the average AltRight person. They’re not totally aligned with me across the board, but I find them to be a breath of fresh air sometimes. In fact, I wish there were more people like them because they approach topics logically and critically. Even though they may not reach the same ideological conclusions, the atheist/rationalist personalities often help to lead people down the path of skepticism and empiricism, which can be applied to all kinds of different issues relating to identity and the framework of our society.

There’s no question that the mainstream media is liberally using the “fake news” narrative in an attempt to discredit many legitimate news and opinion outlets, some of which are predominantly opinion sites to begin with (such as Unz.com) and deal mainly with commentary and analysis rather than news reporting to begin with. That’s why the establishment media’s “definitive lists” should be viewed as skeptically as the sites in question, since the lists themselves were ideologically constructed.

That being said, I actually *do* see tons people in the AltRight (and especially Alt-Lite) fall for obviously made up news stories. They’d frequently share tons of these stories on Facebook uncritically, even when a brief examination of the site or facts uncovered after a quick Google search would easily debunk whatever wild claims were being made. It’s fine to say the media lies, but it’s clear most people aren’t even curious/critical enough to do basic checking. To make matters worse, when people share these bogus news items, they usually accompany them with some kind of preachy triumphalist rant about something finally being exposed and confirming the essence of their worldview, with a lengthy comment thread filled with people spiraling into outrage and shock at the horror of the “news” story, until finally someone about 20 comments into the frenzy says “guys, that’s a fake news site.”

The Alt-Lite has been entirely consumed with propagating utterly bonkers conspiracies like “pizzagate” without a shred of credible evidence. For an example of the sort of thing which passes for proof for these people, watch a few of these videos which have thousands of upvotes and “believer” comments but contain absolutely nothing substantive. It’s all wild speculation, most of which doesn’t hold up to common sense scrutiny. Take this video of “screams” from Comet Ping Pong, that is somehow supposed to insinuate something horrific is taking places, but chances are if you’ve ever been to a Chuck E. Cheese in your life or any place where children are playing and going buck wild…you’ll here some yelling and screaming. To a person who thinks critically, none of this stuff is interesting at all except from a psychological perspective. It is horrifying only in the sense of witnessing seemingly normal people transform into an irrational lynch mob, whipped up into a frenzy over some of the flimsiest, rinkydink evidence ever concocted. There was a whole video talking about the logos used on these websites and how they were supposedly cryptic symbols for all kinds of nefarious sexual activity and demonry, but these were mostly just generic logos with hearts, triangles etc…the kind of basic bitch, stock clipart logos that you pay someone 5 dollars to make on Fiverr if you’re too lazy to spend a few minutes online creating them yourself. This is not to say that the allegations being made by these internet sleuths are definitively false. Maybe they’ll turn out to be true (by all means, investigate!) but the evidence presented so far has been underwhelming and not particularly persuasive enough to justify ruining innocent people’s lives and harming the reputations of seemingly banal local businesses.

With people like Cernovich and Paul Joseph Watson burning bridges with AltRight, hopefully they will take some of their loony conspiracy audience with them. The same people who are so squeamish they think jokingly giving Roman salutes poisons our movement, are somehow under the impression that InfoWars has a respectable reputation among ordinary educated people. This same crowd disavows some of us for daring to have racial in-group preferences…yet they think promoting Satanic panics, UFO conspiracies, Sandy Hook conspiracies, and pseudo-scientific health quackery won’t repel useful and intelligent people from their movement.

The epidemic of “fake news” itself isn’t a remarkable issue. It’s just blackhat internet marketers trying to make a quick buck with clickbait articles that easily go viral due to their outrageous bombshell claims. The astronomical number of people who appear to be susceptible to fabricated news items and circulate them uncritically is the real story. It’s more of an argument for why most people probably aren’t mentally equipped to vote than a case for news curation. That’s why I’m in favor of “fedora nationalism” (non-MRA variety) which given the available evidence of observable human behavior, is probably more of pipe dream than Calexit, the Northwest Territorial Imperative, or even the plot of Bionic Commando.

One last note…

For crying out loud, it’s *eminent* domain, not “imminent” domain! Sorry, I have been wanting to get that off my chest for a while.

You Can’t Salute That on Television!

white people giving Roman salutes…the horror!

Confession time… When I entered the pro-white scene a few years ago, I never went through any kind of Esoteric Hitlerism phase. I’ve never been much of a WW2 enthusiast or had any kind of fetish for Nazi era iconography or memorabilia. I never got into holocaust revisionism or any of that. It simply never interested me at all, and I don’t find it to be relevant to our present conflict, which is whether or not white people have a right to act in our own collective interests (we do, and we will.) I’m not a big fan of countries’ that waste their newly established productive nationalism by putting their most patriotic soldiers through the meat grinder in unnecessary wars. Both the Germans and Italians opted for military adventures that were ill-advised, even if some were justified. On that front, Franco’s Spain was a much more admirable example, as he was remarkably able to keep the Spanish out of World War II (for the most part,) despite the nation’s proximity to some of the bloodiest large-scale warfare the world had ever seen. While Germany and Italy were completely destroyed, Franco’s regime survived and thrived until his death in 1975.

To the extent I maintain any interest in the WW2 historical period at all, it is largely limited to an appreciation for the aesthetics of Italian fascism and futurism, which mostly consists of things most conservative traditionalists or right wing reactionary types hate and consider degenerate. That’s right. I love all that brutalist architecture and futurist / modern art. Go ahead and cringe if you want. My ideal city (strictly aesthetically speaking) would probably resemble the fictitious fascist city depicted in “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.” (minus the animal cruelty.)

Hell, I even like the creepy and weird performance art of today. When conservatives were expressing their moral outrage and disgust at Marina Abramovic’s “spirit cooking,” I was thinking “Gee, if Hillary is actually into any of this freaky shit, she’s cooler than I thought.” It’s not the sort of thing I’m interested in to be honest, but I like other weird stuff, so I understand the appeal of weird and creepy things in general.

Anyway, the reason I mention all this is that it’s a mistake the media often makes in assuming that anyone who is pro-white is some kind of Nazi fetishist (though I don’t have a problem with anyone who is.) For most, the road here is simply a realization that as a white person, a society becoming less European demographically would be (and has become) increasingly hostile to me and an undesirable place for people like me to live, period. We pay attention to and process what non-whites say, understand their plans are for us in the future, and we have decided to organize accordingly in collective resistance to the premature chalk outline they’ve drawn up for us. We’re just not interested, thank you.

A bunch of lame and uptight people threw a fit because some individuals decided to jokingly give Roman salutes at the NPI gathering in Washington DC. They were concerned this somehow makes us look bad to normies. I think this is nonsense. Older boomers and some Gen X types might get freaked out by this sort of thing, but many young people don’t care. World War II and the Nazis are ancient history to them and a big joke. I hate listening to these nervous nellies and concern trolls go on and on  “Looks like the AltRight just blew it and shot themselves in the foot by giving the press ammunition.”  The truth is young people just don’t give a shit. It reminds me of how republicans and conservatives are still always calling people “communists” as if it’s still 1965 and anyone still cares or feels stigmatized by being labeled a “commie” besides old boomer cuckservatives. These tired labels are losing their power over people, which is why the media is going into hysterical mode: “What? didn’t you hear us? they are nazis! What do you mean it doesn’t bother you? We’ll keep saying it louder!! Fascists!!!”

No one cares about being called racist anymore. More than anything, it’s important that people see us having fun and misbehaving. We want to shatter the mirror maze of social taboos, not merely stumble around it, constantly bumping into the walls. Desensitizing people to taboo symbols is crucial to destabilizing the existing moral framework.  Sure people like Ramzpaul are right when they say the media wants to associate us with “evil nazis,” but what if people got so used to seeing fascist symbolism and gestures thrown about casually that the sight of them no longer triggered a negative emotional response? We cannot stop the press from associating us with Nazis. They can frame anything we say or do within that context, but we have the power to make a mockery of that association and expose it for the bogeyman that it is.

My message to squeamish people both inside and outside is this:

Look at you timid people, afraid of something so innocuous as a Roman salute! a hand gesture! Why would you like to be like them? What kind of pathetic way is that to live? Afraid of making offensive jokes or expressing yourself in ways that might get you in trouble? Why not question the moral authority that’s been imposed on you in its entirety, rather than just the aspects that relate to drugs or sexuality? Wouldn’t you rather be like us? We’re the free spirits. We say what we want. We stand by what we believe is true even in the face of an onslaught of hostility from all directions, even within. We don’t much care what people think about us, because we don’t crave acceptance in the world you live in, which you don’t realize is actually a prison. It’s you that should be wanting to hang out with us, not the other way around. Whether we want to get drunk and do Roman salutes with exotic women or if we feel like playing catch with swastika shaped frisbees at the beach while listening to Charles Manson records on a sunny Saturday afternoon, we’ll do it. We don’t have to justify ourselves to anyone. If you wonder why we don’t seem to care that our exuberant indulgences and “provocative” statements potentially scare away timid people, it’s because we’ve determined our way is preferable to conforming to a life spent meekly tip-toeing on eggshells. Feel free to justify yourself to us if you want in. Otherwise keep walking.

The Safety Pin Dance

blacksquare
Russian stamp bearing Kazimir Malevich’s “Black Square,” a painting which x-rays discovered an inscription that said “negroes battling in a cave.”

There’s a retarded new social media virtue signaling fad where people change their profile pictures to just a black space to protest Trump being elected president. Some people are also wearing safety pins to show their solidarity with designated victim groups which are supposedly threatened by Trump’s recent electoral victory. What these gestures signify in actuality is that those participating have learned absolutely nothing from this election cycle (and developments in the years building up to it.) Anyone partaking in these pathetically self righteous protests is demonstrating a lack of self reflection. They’re merely advertising to everyone that they have an impaired ability to process any societal reverberations outside their own echo chamber.

Here’s the thing, in case you weren’t aware, this kind of “change my profile picture in support of the latest cause du jour” virtue signaling and #BringBackOurGirls styled hashtag activism has become an eyeroll inducing joke. This hysterically contrived outrage and the accompanying transparently token gestures are in fact part of the reason Trump won.  A lot of people are sick of this kind of cornball bullshit. “LGBT people” have little to nothing to even fear in a Trump administration. He isn’t a social conservative. He has openly said gay marriage is the law of the land. Trump even said he didn’t care what bathroom trannies used. Peter Thiel, who is gayer than a 3 dollar bill, is on Trump’s white house transition team and was a key speaker at the convention. It’s true that Mike Pence is anti-gay (the whole electro-shock thing is pretty retro,) but Trump probably must have felt he had to pick him to throw a bone to religious conservatives. He got some bad advice on that one if you ask me (I hoped he would have chosen Jim Webb,) but then again he won so what do I know…It’s not like anyone was going to give Trump credit for being liberal on these issues anyway ( I can almost guarantee that many people rocking these safety pins are totally ignorant of Trump’s stances on these issues.)Trump’s positions on social issues as well as his anti-war views, his opposition to free trade and outsourcing were all reasons he was accused by his conservative opponents as being a democrat in disguise during the republican primaries. In many ways he was, and that is precisely what made him appealing!

Some of the people out there calling for resistance and revolution have clearly not given much brain power to the idea. I’m not sure that agitating for civil war would be a wise decision for them. Whom do these people think the police are going to side with? People like Deray and Triggly Puff?  Do they really believe the military is going to align themselves with blue haired, safety pin wearing Tumblr freaks and feral black rioters? That kind of vanguard might be sufficient if all you’re doing is burning down your own cities that no one else cares if you destroy, but it’s not going to catapult your revolution very far outside your hugbox. The misinformed and violent BlackLivesMatter protests as well as the endless stream of social justice street theater have contributed to a backlash which partially manifested in the form of Donald Trump being elected president. And yet, the same cast of characters are doubling down on anti-white sentiment and intersectionality! They haven’t thought through to what the next backlash they’re inviting may escalate to.

Instead maybe try some self reflection. Attempt to piece together what led us here. It’s like, what did you think would happen when you encouraged all these different ethnic groups to identify tribally and assert their ethnic group interests? What did you think would happen when you constantly promoted “white guilt” and insisted every white person “examine their whiteness” and check his/her white privilege. Trump won white millennials, white women and white men. In awakening white people to a conscious racial awareness, you’ve unconsciously awakened them to a realization that they too have group interests and may need to assert them in order to maintain an environment that isn’t hostile to them. Safety pins won’t offer much protection for anti-white activists from the future they’re unleashing, but they might generate a few laughs along the way.

The Unreality of “Non-Racist” Race Realism

viewmaster2

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about “anti-racist” or “non-racist” race realism in certain circles. Basically all it strikes me as is some kind of bizarre euphemistic rationalization for someone who says and believes racist things but wants to insist they are against racism, perhaps by implying that they aren’t going to act upon their thought criminalistic beliefs or take their beliefs to their logical conclusion and advocate for racially based policies or engage in any kind of racial activism.

This kind of approach doesn’t make much sense to me.

The minute you start talking about there being racial IQ differences or pointing out differences in group behavior tendencies among different racial groups, you’ve already crossed the Rubicon into racism. When you start talking about how blacks are loud and hoot and holler in movie theaters, that *is* a racist stereotype and a racist observation, (especially if you believe there is any biological basis for these behavioral differences, but even if you do not.) Racism is a belief or set of them, which can be held even if you take no action.

So what you are really trying to say is that while you are racist on some level and hold racist viewpoints and believe some racial stereotypes are accurate, that you would not want to discriminate against anyone based on these thoughts you hold. That doesn’t mean you’re not racist, it just means you’re against discrimination. Though even this seems hard to swallow. If you believe things about a certain group, why would you refuse to apply the knowledge you’ve accumulated or the beliefs you hold to your everyday life? That just seems remarkably inefficient and counter intuitive. The answer is of course you apply this knowledge in your life. If you know a particular neighborhood is predominantly black, do you just decide to go for a stroll through it in the middle of the night without any hesitation, just as you would in a predominantly Asian or white neighborhood of an equal socioeconomic status? My guess is that you would not, or that at the very least you would consider them each on a different basis. Tailoring your activity in an area based on the racial demographics (not exclusively but among other variables,) is a form of practicing racial discrimination. It is a mild form to be sure, but it is racism. You can even attempt to claim that it isn’t discrimination because there is no “victim,” and that you are not directly discriminating against anyone, yet if there is a store or a business in an area that is not being frequented because the racial demographics in that neighborhood makes people hesitant to conduct their shopping there, then that business is losing potential customers on the basis of racial discrimination (whether justifiably or not.)

So you can make the claim that you want to use these racially based observations and beliefs positively to help these other groups or in some way utilize this knowledge to help us all live together peacefully, but in order to apply this information to society in some useful way, that would entail a racially based policy or action of some kind to put this knowledge to practice. It’s still a racialist action that is taking place. Also the very notion that other groups should adopt the values and cultural norms of European western civilization, and that you can “help” them, is itself a kind of implicit white supremacy. It’s the “White Man’s Burden,” busybody imperialism as opposed to the quiet separatist who would rather just be left alone and isn’t concerned one way or the other with how others wish to live, so long as they do it far away.

Furthermore, identifying as a “non-racist” race realist won’t win you any points or shield you from being branded a racist by 95% of people. It’s a distinction without a meaningful difference.

Imagine your boss calls you into the office one day…

“Excuse me Charlie, we’ve had a complaint that you wrote an internet article back in 2010 that says blacks have a tendency to behave rudely in restaurants…”

“Oh don’t worry about that, sir. You see I’m not racist. I’m against racism. I’m just a race realist.”

“Well whatever, I’m afraid we’re going to have to let you go. Our company cannot tolerate white supremacists. We value diversity here at Globocorp. Security will escort you out of the building.”

Of course, none of this means that if you’re “racist” you by default must embrace white nationalism, separatism, segregation, gentrification or any other proposed “solution.” It just means you’re a racist. There are many different ideological directions one can go once they reach that realization. Racial awareness isn’t a one way street toward white nationalism, (though that’s certainly not an illogical direction to go in for many people.) Nor does this mean that you have to hate every non-white person. To the contrary, being racist allows you to be friends with someone from another race and deal with them from a mutual position of honesty and acceptance if you’re both up for it. The worst people are the ones who claim to be against racism and advocate for mass immigration from places like Somalia, but then move to Portland or send their kids to majority white private schools in Vermont. They’re like the Christians who constantly harp about degeneracy while they’re hypocritically engaging in all kinds of pervy shit in their own lives.
Why is hate considered intrinsically bad anyway? Hate can be good and useful, which is why it is something we’ve evolved to be biologically capable of emoting. Love is overrated. You don’t have to hate, but so what if you do? Hate can get you out of some nasty situations in life, one way or another.

Most people are subconsciously racist to one degree or another and are not aware of it, but they act upon these beliefs constantly. The (((media))) of course loves to point this out, but pushes the narrative that you are supposed to feel guilty about noticing behavioral patterns and using your brain efficiently in learned risk/reward assessment. They want you to repent by bending over and masochistically giving away western civilization to hostile people from the third world, and they pretend this is somehow good for everyone or that it is simply white people’s turn to suffer and be enslaved. Fortunately though, many whites read those propaganda articles about “examining their whiteness” and don’t find the ethnomasochism offer all that tempting. Instead, a growing number of them opt to simply embrace their whiteness and go with their survival instincts.
