Twin Stupidities: "White Sharia" and Ethnonationalism

Against "White Sharia" and the ethnonationalists.

Stop judging me, “movement.”

I'm bringing up this amusing (but true) post again, which is relevant to some of the points I make below.

“White Sharia” – juvenile jackassery that only the Alt Right could produce. Put me down as a misogynist who believes in patriarchy and who also believes that snarky memes derived from alien cultures are utterly moronic. “White Sharia” violates Sallis’ Shiv: “movement” freakishness should not be multiplied beyond necessity.

By the way, AltRight.com probably needs to deal with the SiteLock problem. I’m assuming they’re aware of it; if not, they are now.  I know some of them read this blog. Some of your readers can’t access your site – at least the ones who don’t change their VPN settings.

Speaking of that site, it’s amusing how the ethnonationalist retards are getting their noses bent out of shape over Spencer’s analysis of a very clear and obvious issue.  Yes, British nationalism put all its eggs in the UKIP basket, yes, UKIP lost its raison d’etre after Brexit, and, yes, Brexit hasn’t actually solved any of Britain’s racial and cultural problems.  And, yes, I remember that I was strongly in favor of Brexit – but for the same reasons I supported Trump.  Both Brexit and Trump in and of themselves are useless; however, as bringers of chaos against a destructive status quo, they’ve been useful.  And, of course, the EU as it currently exists is an anti-White disaster and it needs to be deconstructed.  But the idea that “Polish plumbers” (who of course don’t belong in the UK) are in any way the real existential problem is absurd.  Brexit itself solved nothing, the emphasis on Brexit and the UKIP damaged genuine British nationalism, and the whole sorry tale is yet another blow against the ethnonationalist narrative.  Ethnonationalism and mainstreaming – two failures.

I also get real enjoyment over that tired old paradigm that the failure of nationalism in America vs. its “success” in Europe is due to the “unworkable” pan-racial White aspect of American racial nationalism vs. the “grounded” ethnonationalism in Europe.  Err… first of all, given what’s happening in Europe, the migrant invasion and terror attacks being the most obvious examples, the fact that nationalist parties in Western Europe have gone from one failure to another is not exactly a ringing endorsement of the ethnonationalist approach. Second, the difference in success of America vs Europe (to the extent that it is true that nationalism is more advanced in Europe) is mostly due to:

1. The pathetic freakishness of the American “movement” that repulses people of all White ethnic backgrounds, and the fact that the American “movement” is hardly pan-European but openly despises a significant (minority) fraction of America’s White population (the problem is more that the American “movement” is not for all Whites, not that it is).

2. De facto social pricing (America) is more of an impediment to nationalist organizing than is de jure “hate” laws (Europe).  Johnson and Le Brun discussed this on a podcast and I agree with them.  Now, yes, I’ve been adamant that the “hate” laws in Europe must go, and that they are an impediment, but social pricing in America is a far bigger impediment. Wide-ranging soft totalitarianism deters more than narrowly applied harder totalitarianism.

Thus, if (1) the American “movement” was reformed, and (2) a way was found to counter-act social pricing, you’d quickly narrow the gap between American and European nationalist organizing.
