The Purge Continues

The meaning of the purge.

The suppression of dissident opinion and The Purge of the Right continues.

How to interpret all of this?

It would be tempting for the Anti-Alt Right Far Right to adopt the attitude of “the Alt Right and associated groups caused all of this trouble and this whole mess is their responsibility.” However, that would be the wrong view. We cannot confuse means (online activism) with ends (promoting White interests).  If the only way to safeguard our Internet presence is to be completely ineffectual, to accomplish nothing, to stay in our little playpen, then the online presence is useless.  The whole point of online activism is to eventually transition to the real world.  The Unite the Right rally had every right to occur, the violence was the responsibility of the Left and the authorities, and the Purge is System repression and nothing else.  Thus, the Purge is ultimately the responsibility of the System, not the Alt Right.

Of course, there are grounds to criticize the Alt Right and the other rally organizers.  We can ask whether the benefits of the rally was worth the costs. We can point out the lack of online security allowing the planning to be infiltrated, the relative lack of organization, the participation of Nutzi types, the silly costumes, and the point that if the Alt Right pushes its hegemony over racial nationalism, then they should include major racial nationalist stakeholders in the planning, and in the overall strategic direction, of big events and other activities.

That said, as much as I dislike the Alt Right, they cannot be blamed as the fundamental cause of the Purge (which would have happened eventually, sooner or later).

If we want to point fingers on the Right, we can look toward the “movement” as a whole, the Old Movement that never created the infrastructures required to survive System persecution and to move forward.  The Old Movement for the last half-century has been invested in the Piercian Der Tag mentality that the System is about to collapse any minute and “the revolution” is just around the corner.  After all, why organize in depth, for the long haul, with a decades-long strategic vision, if you are always thinking that “the System is definitely going to collapse in five years?”  If you believe, and proselytize, the view that a Turner Diaries scenario is going to occur within the next half decade, why bother with long term planning?

And so, when we find ourselves in the current situation, we find we have no community presence, no community support, no integration into the community, we have no cadre of lawyers ready to come to our defense, we have no print journals or other analog media ready to pick up the slack of online censorship, we have no elected officials sympathetic to our cause (the retarded buffoon in the White House, who denounced “hate,” definitely does not count), we have no professionalized security or intelligence operations, we have no businesses outside of direct “movement” activity to employ activists and to generate income, we have no (insofar as I know) “reptile fund” to support required covert operational activities – we have none of it. We are woefully unprepared for the contingencies that come from dissident activism and we are paying the price for that unpreparedness.  Instead of taking rhetoric about how “the System is anti-White and doesn’t care about our people” at face value, we have ignored opportunities to reach out to the declining White middle class, we have neglected practical community-based activities to help those Red State White Americans with increasing mortality rates and existential despair, we have turned our back on the real world and have rolled around in our isolated playpens.  And now when we need White support, they are not there for us like we were not there for them.

The “movement” made three significant errors:

1. Not organizing in depth in the real world.  See the two preceding paragraphs. This has been the largest error.  Decades of time, enormous efforts, and a lot of money, all have been completely wasted.  An absolute disgrace.

2. An over-reliance on digital activism.  This ties in to point #1 above.  We have become addicted to the Internet, at the expense of real world tangible activity.  We have reached a point where the “movement” is a foundation of digital bytes (easily erased by the System) coupled to a more recent superstructure of rallies full of mostly well-meaning people many of whom nonetheless look like they’ve just left a cosplay convention.  That’s not going to work out.  We need to take stock, and while we rebuild our online presence, we should consider this a “wake-up call” to invest more in analog activism – deep and meaningful community outreach, practical politics, System infiltration, and building of new alternative communities – and perhaps invest less in talking among ourselves online about “Pepe” and “Kek” and the older “movement” memes as well.

3. A too-narrow leadership cadre.  It has been the same people – the same types of people – and the same ideas, over and over again. There is no accountability, years and decades of failure have no consequences.  Other people with different ideas are ignored and scorned, because they are of the “wrong” ethnicity and/or do not kowtow to “movement” leaders and dare to criticize the “rock stars” and/or refuse to drink the “movement” Kool-Aid of outdated fossilized dogma.  It is high time to consider other perspectives. You are not obligated to agree with those perspectives, much less actualize them, but at least give them a fair hearing.  

Having said all of this, a case can be made that the Purge may in the long run be for the best.  It would have had to happen sooner or later – and worse may yet be to come if racial nationalism becomes more successful – so the faster the “movement” adapts to the way things are, the stronger it will become having weathered the crisis.  The System will adapt as well – a Red Queen scenario is likely – but this process is necessary for any real dissident movement.  The status quo had to be broken.  Perhaps it could have been broken in a more productive manner, but what has happened has happened, and reality needs to be dealt with as it exists.
