Once Again Countering the Rancid Current

Counter-Currents: The worst “pro-White site” on the Internet.

Greg Johnson: Trump is a sincere man of genuine greatness.

The reality (emphasis):
Mr. Cullen indicted RAM members with an anti-riot statute originally passed to stop Vietnam War protesters. The Washington Post wrote a glowing profile on Mr. Cullen, in which he explained: “Hate crimes and violence by white supremacist organizations that qualify as domestic terrorism are way up. Prosecuting them is common sense.”
There is no white-supremacist violence “surge.” Mr. Cullen simply wanted to destroy this group. He credited far-left journalists with providing a “starting-point” for his investigation, and the FBI relied on a hit piece from antifa for its criminal complaint. Four RAM members pleaded guilty to “conspiracy to riot” charges. Mr. Cullen ignored — consciously or not — the obvious truth that if there had been no antifa protesters, there would have been no violence. If the “conspiracy to riot” law were enforced fairly, he would have prosecuted antifa as well. He didn’t, apparently because he takes orders from liberal journalists…Any crackdown will be subjective. That’s why Mr. Cullen’s nomination is wrong. He selectively enforces the law based on political and media considerations. For the RAM case, he took his cue from left-wing journalists. He ignores groups that proclaim revolutionary intent but indicts groups that defend themselves. He practices “anarcho-tyranny.”
The House just impeached President Trump. I’m having a hard time caring. President Trump probably doesn’t even know Mr. Cullen’s name, but he should. If these are the judges he gives us, it’s hard to see why we should support him.
The Quota Queens: Wrong, wrong, they’re ALWAYS wrong.

Sallis – who labeled Trump a fraud and nicknamed him “Antifa Don Trump" – proven right again.

Sallis: Right, right, he’s ALWAYS right.

“Under would-be Yockey biographer Keith Stimley’s editorship, Thompson contributed book reviews to the Journal of Historical Review.”
I see that Keith Stimley died very young (35). Does anyone know the circumstances of his death?

Keith Stimely: proto-Alt Righter?

Contrary to what you may think, these clips are not – repeat, not! - documentary footage of a certain young bisexual male Alt Righter attending certain highbrow racialist meetings.

If you watched episode one of A Very English Scandal (about a real life political scandal) you’ll see that the homosexual politician was a radical pro-colored immigration lunatic, mocking and opposing the idea of a White Britain, and shamelessly shilling for more “Commonwealth immigration” – open borders for “the Commonwealth” (sort of like the pro-Brexit leaders of today). That's yet more evidence that “being in the EU” has, and had, fundamentally nothing to do with the racial morass found in the UK today. The British people did it to themselves. Ethnonationalism!

In reality, even if there was never an EU, the UK would still be as non-White as it is today. Actually, likely even more so, since in the absence of the EU, and the UK's presence in the EU, all those immigration slots that went to Eastern Europeans would have gone to "Commonwealth" Negroes and South Asians instead.  And I say that as someone who has a long history of being anti-EU. But as much as I dislike the EU, I dislike ethnonationalist lies even more.

Hampton writing in Counter-Currents:
Baseball is too slow-paced and indulges conservative fantasies. The world never changes in baseball, and conservatives can pretend it’s still 1950 every summer
Putting aside the comments about “slow-paced” (interestingly exactly mirroring Johnson’s previous critiques of the sport*), as regards:
The world never changes in baseball, and conservatives can pretend it’s still 1950 every summer.
Sure!  What with inter-league play, the designated hitter, bottom-of-the-lineup hitters blasting 30+ home runs per year with the juiced-up balls travelling well over 400 feet even with clumsy one-handed swings, the endless parade of relief pitchers, every other pitcher having had "Tommy John surgery,” most televised games being on pay-for-TV cable, etc. – it’s just like 1950!  

Wrong, wrong, they’re ALWAYS wrong.

And, hey, I thought Counter-Currents liked “tradition?” I suspect the disdain for baseball is due to ADHD types (likely enriched among Type I activists) whose preference in sports is for constant, repetitive, back-and-forth action, devoid of deeper strategy and forethought (sort of like how they conduct their "activism).  I suppose it is also possible some types get a thrill over all those "macho hard men" in hockey (too bad hockey players don't skate around in "rainbow thongs," eh?).  Anyway...sports are all "bread and circuses" anyway.  But the Alt Right sure seems obsessed with it.

* I recall that, recently, another Hampton article - a movie review no less (was"Trevor Lynch" not available?) - was originally credited to Johnson.  This Hampton requires close scrutiny.

Another issue: Read this.  When Russia announces advances in their nuclear deterrent, the fraud Trump tweets, lying, that “we have better and more advanced weapons.”  Nonsense. The Minuteman ICBM is a weapon system from the 60s and 70s, the Trident SBLM is a weapon system from the 70s and 90s, and as far as the bomber force goes, the US continues to downgrade the yield of the free fall bombs to embarrassingly low levels. Russia is far, far ahead. The “Ground Based Strategic Deterrent” should have been produced decades ago.

And have you noticed that in the past, American rockets and missiles (actualized or cancelled) were always given names reflecting imagination and individualism, names that also reflected cultural “Whiteness” – Greco-Roman and Norse mythology, American history, Western literature, animals, stars, etc. (even naming one after an Indian tribe is a very ‘White” thing to do – look at sports teams)?  Nowadays, we get sterile names like “Ground Based Strategic Deterrent.”  I suppose the rot started when the MX missile was given the stupid name of Peacekeeper (on the other hand, I rather liked the name Midgetman, which reflected tongue-in-cheek imagination). This seems like a small and unimportant change, but it informs us about deep differences in American culture and attitudes between then and now.  Today's deracinated, empty, consumerist, vapid, sterile culture cannot even come up with imaginative and Western/American/White code names for the products of Western technics. I suppose though I shouldn't complain too much about it - we may start getting "diverse" names for rockets and missiles - Zulu, Carjacker, Rapper, Cholo, Confucius, King David...the mind boggles.
