In an otherwise fine book review and analysis by Johnson, we find two disturbing bits.
This is why I don’t regard Alexander Dugin and Richard Spencer as contributing anything to White Nationalism, which is the advocacy of ethnic self-determination for all white peoples.
That’s an incredibly misleading, actually mendacious, description of what White Nationalism is, essentially equating White Nationalism as the sum of all the various intra-White ethnonationalisms added together. Instead, what most honest people in the “movement” consider by “White Nationalism” is exactly what the term literally implies – a form of nationalism centered on race rather than ethnicity; the ORION principle: Our Race Is Our Nation. Thus, for White Nationalists, the ultimate form of nationhood, and the highest form of national allegiance, is to the race as a whole; individual ethnic allegiances are secondary. In this sense, White Nationalism is the antithesis of narrow ethnonationalism.
Instead, they are simply apologists for Russian imperial revanchism.
Dugin yes. But Spencer? That’s going too far. By the way, who has it been promoting the work of Dugin over the years? All the Type Is out there, all the “traditionalists,: certainly not me.
Spencer regards ethnonationalism as “petty”….
He’s right about that.
…siding with the UK against Scottish independence, the EU against Brexit, and Spain against Catalan independence.
I disagree with Spencer here and go along with Yockey: In an Imperium there can be whatever local autonomy people wish, and if Scots and Catalans (or whoever) want such autonomy, fine, as long as all these regions and micro-nations are confederated into the Imperium.
But although he opposes the UK leaving the EU, he opposes Ukraine joining it. He praises the EU as a transnational, imperial organization — but not NATO.
Spencer can explain his UK vs. Ukraine views himself. The EU in principle is not a bad idea; its execution is globalist and anti-White, so I oppose it.
Clearly, he is more interested in shilling for Russian geopolitical interests than in setting forth a coherent moral and political framework for white survival.
Is White survival instead advanced by setting forth coherent moral and political frameworks of White nations ethnically cleansing each other?
Then we have this:
Beiner then quotes Spencer denouncing “fucking middle class” values and proclaiming “I love empire, I love power, I love achievement.” We even learn from a Jewish female reporter that Spencer will sometimes “get a boner” from reading about Napoleon.
If any of that is true, what can I say that I haven’t said before? All you Type I Nutzis and heavy breathing fetishists out there are responsible for that, you are the ones who enable the affirmative action program. You made your bed so now lie in it (albeit not along with Spencer reading about Napoleon).
