Embracing Defectives

“Scumbag behavior.”

This is the Alt Right.  Jeelvy:
For example, my current employment makes zero to negative economic sense. Despite (or maybe because) of my intellect, I am a bad worker. I am often late for work, and when I do arrive, I arrive with the insomniac’s world-contemptuous scowl overlaid against a stubbled jowl. I resolve office politics with threats of violence, and I’ve been known to disappear for hours on end, only to return in a state of mild inebriation. I write monograph-length critiques of TV shows from ten years ago during office hours. What value I do produce is mercilessly exploited, and my successes are due more to innate charisma and an ability to charm people into forgiving my worst offenses rather than effort or passion. You have to be either crazy or my mother to hire me – in fact, the latter is my employer.
This is the sort of person Greg Johnson has writing for him now.  We’re really on target for community building with such high quality and personable individuals like Jeelvy!  A response:

It’s hard to take seriously anything you write when in the first half of the article you proudly admit that you are a drain on your own family’s business and that you threaten fellow employees, presumably your own family members, with threats of violence. It doesn’t matter how you intellectualize this or what kind of “traditionalist” or otherwise antimodern argument you cobble together to justify it. This is fucking scumbag behavior and you owe your mother an apology and probably also a resignation. I’m sure you’ll call any prescription for responsible behavior a “Boomer” point of view, but it’s the truth (I’m a millennial, btw.)
There are two possibilities here. Either Jeelvy is being honest about his behavior in which case he’s simply a terrible human being who would likely act similarly to fellow activists, or he’ll claim to be “joking” in typical Alt Right Beavis-and-Butthead fashion – just childish “tough guy” posturing.  In either case, for a blog like Counter-Currents with pretensions of being a highbrow intellectual effort, Jeelvy’s writing is an embarrassment.

The main problem is not Jeelvy himself; after all, Alt Right juvenile jackasses are a dime-a-dozen.  The problem is Johnson, who runs such absolutely nonsensical childish stupidity on his blog. I should probably just stand back with a sense of schadenfreude and let Counter-Currents implode, but this is just too much.

One riposte would be to point out examples of juvenile writing and joking at EGI Notes.  The problem there is that I’ve made clear, many times, that the purpose of such writing is to ridicule and mock the stupidity of Der Movement (Jeelvy being a perfect example); the writing in this case is intentional parody of the likes of Jeelvy, Durocher, the entire Alt Right, the fetishists, all of it. Further, EGI Notes has always been a middlebrow blog (Richard Lynn’s Pseudoscience being lowbrow); Western Destiny is my highbrow blog. Counter-Currents itself is supposed to be highbrow.  Thus, the comparison fails.

And the purpose of these critical posts?  It is important to demonstrate to the rank-and-file that Der Movement is intellectually, morally, and ethically bankrupt, and is full of people who are, like Jeelvy, not serious.

And here we observe a perfect example of why all of the “movement” talk about “rejecting defectives” is a lie.  Der Movement actively embraces defectives.  Defectives welcome!  This Jeelvy should have nothing to do with pro-White activism, but instead is an honored writer for Counter-Currents.  Remember the accusations of Pilleater?  He claimed cocaine use at Amren meetings and homosexual sexual harassment at Counter-Currents meetings. That’s the reality.  Jeelvy is the reality. Talk about eschewing defectives is just self-serving nonsense.  Without defectives, 99% of "racial activism" would vanish overnight.

Consider the niche space of racial activism being like a garden – it is now overgrown with weeds that are choking off any useful growth. Without a thorough weeding, nothing productive is possible.  The rank-and-file have to be convinced that weeding is absolutely required.
