Great post BW. I like it when you point out the system being an obvious failure. Most people on Stormfront think these fools in Washington are actually succeeding! I am copying and pasting this one.
My question was in reference to what we do once the system unjams. That is what I am concerned about. I was thinking out loud writing that post to Dave. I not worried about this nonsense ending. But was curious on ideas of what we should do when the system unjams. I am concerned that next step that is obviously coming a lot quicker than anyone suspects.
My bus in the ghetto philosophy will come in handy at that point (I think?). It is very difficult to get people to agree on what they LIKE. But very easy to get them to agree on what they DISLIKE. Whites are an extreme example of this. On the bus in the ghetto, my White tribe never got together and agreed on what to eat for lunch or our which version of the Bible we had at home…..never going to happen. We focused on small negotiated agreements based on what we all DISLIKED. That was simple. It was actually easy. Of course, nature forced us to think in these terms. It was like a Roman Formation united front against what we DISLIKED.
Tim, old buddy, you ought to try like I do to bring up things people LIKE and that COULD BE POLCY. I don’t even get a yawn. I brought up the idea of a Preamble Party which dedicated American to “we the people of the United States of America … and OUR posterity.” The implications are huge, but take some IMAGINATION, not just upchuck reaction to whatever is on the hate list today.
If America were to go for its own people, it could rule world trade. We could cut taxes enormously. NOBODY would mess with us. I started the discussion and then, when not even a yawn came in, I quit. I don’t have that kind of energy any more.
I brought up not only punishing our enemies, but paying off the national debt or having a new basic research program, all. all by making Party people rich by looking up and punishing anti-whites down through the ages. And this is AN IMMEDIATE political Strategy. People out there give us more chance of power than we do. The idea of having a group profitably going after them FOREVER, which we see daily in the Holocaust/Reparations industry and affirmative action is REAL and SCARY.
IF we don’t listen the All Forgiving Neoracists.
I repeat and repeat and repeat. But the burnt fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the fire. It’s like ping-pong. I give new answers and get some version of the same old crap back. If there is a blue bird of happiness, I feel like I’m a statue.
I don’t just bitch. What I propose would PAY us, so we would DO it. It is what is being done now by the other side when it’s in control. This would scare the living crap out of liberals and respectable conservatives whose whole policy is going with the flow and staying out of the danger zone.
I have dealt in political money. We could get that balance money big corporations and rich people put on the “other side” to avoid danger. But I would have to say HOW, and I don’t have that kind of energy when everything I propose doesn’t even get a burp.
All the talk about torchlight parades means NOTHING to the other side. This gives them the crawling willies and could get us some big-time contributions.
Once again, I didn’t even get a yawn. Our people know how to bitch but they don’t know anything whatever about fighting. That is WHY we have BUGS, and ONLY BUGS, to teach them.
Comments lately have been good, but they keep reminding me of Socrates’ men in a lightless cave examining an elephant. One says it is ears, one says it’s a trunk, etc.
One asks about creativity, another about what is to be done in government, another makes an equally good point about another aspect. All this shows thought, but it does not reflect an understanding of the whole.
A great example of what I am talking about is the TV series Connections. It discusses, routinely, the bouncing around, not just of abstract concepts, but of practical ideas which flow from different applications of seemingly totally unrelated tings in Western Civilization. These things are talked about as GIVENS, a part of the whole.
But “real” analysis consists of digging into obscure writings of some ancient Greek or some ancient Egyptians and showing how, slowly and painfully, it led to what we call “us.”
There is not the barest relationship between the dynamic of the society described in “Connections” and the Learned Philosophers of Ancient Civilizations.
All that ancient history, as I said by the time I was eighteen, was “a series of northern invasions.” There would be another undiscussed “northern invasion” and a Great Civilization, fed by the slaves on the bottom from the old society, would get another infusion of “barbarians,” who, of course, had nothing to do with the new vitality and limited creativity — and lots and lots of writing for historians to look at.
But only the old writing, not the “barbarism,” made history. It was coincidental, in fact it is not even mentioned as coincident, that each new phase of Great slave-based Civilizations began with a “northern invasion.”
Everybody as taught that, but only I noticed it.
In my teens.
I’m used to that by now.
When society finally reached Northern Europe and was all white, the explosion occurred. A totally new society developed. It found a use for Africans, the same use they had always had and have today, field hands, bloc voters, and a supply of sperm to get rid of this “white race” which is the obvious explanation for everything Wordists want to attribute to thier Holy Books.
This is the PICTURE. After I am dead, someone will come along and GET IT.
Tim says: So if I were in office right this minute looking for advice on what approach to take. What advice would you give? And don’t say: “Tim, just put your foot down.” I know that. What are your ideas on these international issues we are obviously going to be dealing??
(Bob, you can chime in as well)
The most important thing about this election is that, more than any in recent history, IT DOESN’T MATTER. For all the horror stories about Hillary and others and what they WANT, all they really want is to be president. An adviser would not be telling them what they SHOULD do, but what they CAN do. And that is almost nothing.
There was a time when a McGovern could demand immediate total withdrawal from Vietnam and Goldwater could hint at nukes. We all know what happened to THEM.
So no one demanded we FIGHT in Nam or that we withdraw from Nam. So it stayed a half-assed war, not really a war, and therefore doomed.
Socialized medicine? Kyoto? Immigration? It really doesn’t matter what Hillary or Obama or George Bush WANT. The system now is locked into half-assed everything.
People wait around for the courts to decide in any case where a decision really has to be made.
It amuses me that people talk about “practical politics.” The practical fact is that the system is jammed and, as in Nam, this is fatal. America in Nam went out the way the Soviet Union eventually did, the way Cuba did.
Overnight. Everybody has his pants flat on the floor.
The system will unjam. THAT is practical politics. When it unjams it will be like any other dike bursting. Cuba, Nam, the USSR, races the same, again and again the Practical Men tell us about playing with the thermostat while reality keeps telling us that what the pros talk about is, by definition, unimportant.
Twain was anti-colonial. He said one thing that has an entirely different meaning today:
“There’s invasion, immigration, and colonization. Invasion is military. Immigration is voluntary and peaceful. Colonization is genocide. Colonization can result from EITHER invasion OR immigration. In the end, it’s the same result, though.”
While I suspect that Ron Paul genuinely believes in racial equality, I also suspect that Bill and Hillary Clinton do not.
That’s just my suspects.
But I do know this: Ron Paul does not believe that white men should require nonwhite men to abide by their agreements. Ron Paul definitely has a bias regarding that. He believes that white men are subject to one standard and nonwhites to another.
Though he believes in racial equality, he does not believe nonwhites should be held to their word. In that, he is a solid supporter of the doctrine of political correctness in racial matters.
The proof of this is that he thinks that Mid-Eastern and Central Asian military bases established by white men at great cost and bloodshed specifically for the purpose of requiring nonwhite men to abide by their agreements should be arbitrarily abandoned and that white men should apologize and surrender to the nonwhite men in these areas and nations in contrition for the idea that the agreements that nonwhite men enter into with white men should be enforced.
It’s racist, of course, to require a nonwhite man to honor his word. That is Ron Paul basic operational view.
He also believes that Japan’s, China’s, and the Gulf States huge US T- Bond portfolios have been foisted upon them by greedy white men trying to cheat nonwhites out of their property, labor, and resources.
Accordingly, the similarity Ron Paul has with Chavez and Castro in characterizing the global deployment of US financial assets is quite evident.
I see it a little differently. I see these huge foreign portfolios of US T-Bonds as the winnings of corrupt nonwhite elites profiting off the American people by clinging onto the back of America like desperate swimmers hanging on for dear life to the strong swimmer in a rip tide.
Foreign holders gains on their US T- Bond portfolios have been quite handsome ever since the beginning of the big bond bull market in 1982, quite outpacing any US dollar devaluation they have suffered. But Ron Paul never mentions this as it conflicts with his ideology that white men are basically evil in their monetary dealings with nonwhites.
He likes to talk about the Chinese elites as being rubes who foolishly take mere “paper” from corrupt white men in exchange for real products, resources, and services (at the expense of American workers, of course).
White men cannot be benefactors according to Ron Paul’s ideology for they are basically selfish and evil, quite like our standard brand Marxists have it. Instead, white men always owe nonwhite men something in his view, quite substantial somethings, such as surrender, apology, military bases, other property, honor, you name it.
As long as white men are crawling, surrendering, paying damages, and apologizing, that’s all that matters to Ron Paul. For all of this, white men will get a tax break and be shielded from some currency depreciation in Ron Paul’s world.
Accordingly, his high opinion of white men is evident: White men will sell anything there is to sell for a few nickels. After all, a comfortable retirement is all that matters to white men. And they will sell anything and engage in any treason to get it. Ron Paul likes to call this, “believing in the free market and honest banking”.
And specifically forget the idea that nonwhite nations have to be forced to behave. In Ron Paul’s world, the only people that should be forced to behave are white people and white nations.
Everybody else gets a pass.
These are the real ideas of Ron Paul.
The American left is leading the assault on the undeniable exposure of race difference and on Israeli control of our foreign policy. The right is obsessed with cleansing itself of the Thought Crimes the right committed in denying MLK sainthood and limiting integrationist power.
No major American leftist goy has endorsed Europe’s Thought Crime laws. William Buckley has.
Dave makes it clear, again, that respectable conservatives are our real enemies today.
If a semi-literate black man disagrees with you on race, he will say, “You IGNUNT!” Antis who have never had to debate the subject before always begin by saying we are ignorant.
At first, this is puzzling to us, like saying that we are filled with some undefined Hate. But this Ignorance and Hate have nothing to do with actual ignorance or hatred. We must understand and EXPLAIN each on its own terms.
You are lost if you begin by thinking of real hatred and real ignorance. They do not know it, but antis are referring to CAPITALIZED Hate and Ignorance. We are dealing with a religion. Our established religion is Political Correctness, with its liberal seminaries run by Mommy Professors, a.k.a., universities. You cannot argue with disciples of this faith until you recognize that it IS a faith.
When used by antis, “ignunce” or Ignorance is precisely what the Catholic Church means by the Doctrine of Invincible Ignorance. Invincible Ignorance does not require real ignorance, that is, one can KNOW the doctrine of the Church. Invincible Ignorance is the inability to BELIEVE the True Faith, however much you know about it.
Every religious fanatic, be he Politically Correct, Christian, Islamic, Marxist, Americanist or Libertarian, feels that no one who truly KNOWS his True Faith can reject. So he sincerely believes that if you don’t BELIEVE, you simply do not Truly Understand it.
Mommy Professor is also Father Professor.
This thing has been flashing on and off like a code mirror. I reported I was back and then it didn’t work. Anyway, if this doesn’t go on, Brian is standing by for action.
- good practical politics and
- why we must avoid seeing any national conservative as a friend.
I have written dozens of speeches for congressmen, etc. which said race was not the issue. Some of you may guess that I really didn’t mean it. In fact, in practical high-level politics, constantly denying that something is an issue is a sure sign that it IS the issue.
I drove a hundred miles each way and stayed in a motel overnight to hear Nick Griffin’s speech at Clemson. Nick said in his public blog that I was “an old friend” he was glad to have there in support.
One example was that when the TV camera rolled, he called me over to talk with him in front of it. I am used to it. Most people get a bit nervous in front of a TV camera and don’t know how to handle it. It’s sometimes useful to have an old pro around, often for reasons one wouldn’t immediately think of.
Nick spoke at Clemson about the takeover of Europe by militant Islam. He made the standard statement about how this wasn’t about race. Why?
I am proud to point out that Nick said that this speech, in my native state, was the first time he had EVER been allowed to speak at that “Citadel of Free Speech,” a university. He was received politely while leftists slavered at the riot they planned when he spoke in Michigan.
In order to speak on campus in a PART of a country which still takes free speech seriously, he had to have a group sponsor him. So those young people at the Young Americans for Freedom — some of the few holdouts of YAF who still take the word “Freedom” seriously — were putting their futures on the line.
Now how exactly would Nick have looked if he declared that it WAS about race?
Nick, on his web page, declared ME an “old friend.” I have been on the national media talking race repeatedly. Nick made his point there and made the pint he HAD to make for the brave YAF youngsters.
It is easy to beat your chest on SF, but in practical politics, it is both stupid and often cruel and ungrateful to do so. Nick has no problem with MY approach to race. It is the Mantra ***, which I freely repeat in front of any member of any minority group. I am a white man worried about my race. That is as racist as Nick will get and that is as racist as Nick IS.
It is more than I would ask of a respectable conservative like Ron Paul.
It is quite possible that Ron Paul, as a wordist libertarian, has no feeling for his race at all.
Frankly a person who is genuinely loyal to a set of principles out of a book and a slab of ground called the United States of America but has no feeling at all about his own genetic types is more alien to me than E.T. But Kelso and some Stormfronters have convinced me that Paul is a step forward, so I will support him.
If I though Paul had chance of winning. I would reevaluate my position.
But I would cheerfully support E.T. for any office if it helped OUR cause.
But a respectable conservative or a Marine who REALLY has normal loyalties otherwise but TRULY has no feeling for our race makes my stomach turned a lot more than a Jew who just plain hates us.
They give me the CREEPS. But a lot of people in politics turn my stomach, so the choice must be made on a practical basis.
*** AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!
“It is said that there is this RACE problem. They say this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.”
“The Netherlands and Belgium are as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.”
“Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.”
“What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY Black Country and ONLY into black countries?”
“How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem? I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?”
“And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?”
“But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.”
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
“Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”
You will notice that my pieces the last couple of days have been posted by Brain. After the one-day breakdown we had, my posting on my computer still didn’t work
SysOps and Brain’s DID work. So I just sent my postings to Brian in our Yahoo group and Brian posted them:
You can copy and paste this address in your address bar. The fact that I STILL cannot make this a link despite Brain’s patient explanation is an illustration of the problem I discuss below:
This fact that this cured itself is a big relief because system problems our techs handle — while I was just discovering that one-day problem, SysOps and Brian were already on it like soldier ants on an intruder before I wrote a piece on it below. But problems on MY computer are a problem for me, because I know so little about the problem and a tech has to walk me through it. I have been dreading that.
The fact is that I level with you about my problems with computer fixes like my being older and having attention deficit. But that doesn’t make it EASY. Our techs understand my problems perfectly, but I am almost human, and it hurts my pride to constantly have to tell them, over and over and over on the phone that I don’t understand things that to them are routine. No matter how many times I do it, I still feel like a whiner constantly justifying himself.
So I dread it and I put it off. This time, the passage of time made it unnecessary.
A lot of the torchlight parade or Greatest Generation types brag about how brave they were or would be in a violent confrontation, but the idea of losing benefits or sacrificing their pride leaves them cowering in a corner. In the real world, the sacrifices you REALLY have to make are not the ones you can brag about.
But I would keep it up if necessary. If it is a choice between my pride and the cause, you know which way I’ll go.
So, Brain, my thanks and I am now able to do this myself.
Back Bay Grouch: Hmmm, you are beginning to sound very Catholic. This is a common experience to intelligent men who, freed from the daily hubbub by age, turn reflective.
That depends entirely on which kind of Catholic you mean. I am rereading Lawrence Brown’s Might of the West for about the fiftieth time, and he makes a critical distinction.
My own observation: Erasmus supported Luther at the outset, but turned against him as he began to attack the Western unity represented by the Medieval Church. But at his death, he refused all rites, something a modern Catholic would NEVER do. This puzzles the hell out of Mommy Professor.
But Brown points out, and C.S. Lewis, who was an Anglican, indicated, that both the Reformation and the reaction to it, the Catholic Church hardened at Trent, were totally different from the united church in its Medieval form. Nobody raised on the Renaissance crap has the slightest idea what I am talking about.
The Medieval Church, as I said, regarded Renaissance witches as demented old women. They did not let Wordism blind them to reality. The Medieval Church would have had no problem with Galileo.
My interpretation of Brown and Lewis is that the Reformation got the entire church, both Tridentate and Reformation, tangled in the exact WORDS of the Bible and Tradition. Tradition is a living thing, not the locked-in wordism of post-Reformation Catholicism.
In short, Tradition is Western. Neither the Reformation nor the Trent Catholics nor Mommy Professor has a hint of what that means.
Erasmus was a part of the West, part of the Medieval Church, so he did not feel he needed the hocus-pocus.
These are thought-points, not doctrine.
A fine man who worked with SysOps and me made a penetrating observation.
We were trying to get my book published, and he noted that at every convention there is a PILE of books published by the movement, but we never pool our resources. His brilliant summary was, “We have GOT to stop having to reinvent the wheel every time.”
We haven’t, of course.
In Whitaker Online, Bob’s Blog, and Bob’s Underground Graduate Seminar, since 1998, laid out unchanged in half a million to a million words of postings and comments, we have the COMPLETE DEVELOPMENT of THIS wheel. We are also careful to make sure that, if we lose our web page or anything else happens, the whole shebang is in several people’s hands who have experience and permission to use it.
Of all our basics, delegation, pooling and openness is not the least of the lessons we have to teach.
Anyone who cannot use SOMETHING we have done is lacking something basic.
Any time I start to feel guilty about not giving credit to SysOps Brain or Dave or the people I entirely miss giving credit to, I remind myself that I should either forget that crap or force myself to watch the Toni Awards or read the “Acknowledgments” section of any book I happen to pick up.
I told you how sick a senior staffer on the Hill gets of congressman kissing each other on the ass in public. Torturing everybody with personal thanks here would be boring, not least, very soon, for the people getting the kisses. But this also gives me a chance to hit on another of our BASICS:
What I call “tech work” here is a LOT more than a genius at tech. Our “techs” lay out the entire presentation of what goes on here, like a movie director. This means they must stay on top of things and know EXACTLY what the message IS.
Alfred Hitchcock found the making of his movies tedious, because he had already worked out every scene and every shot in his head, so he was just going through the motions.
So no one could find careful “crediting” less interesting than our techs, because no one is more in sync with our BASICS than they.
Including THIS basic:
We are not in this for praise.
We are not in this for money.
We are not in this for fame.
We are not in this for high-sounding titles.
Our goal is much more modest:
All we ask is to change the course of world history.
I do not keep repeating these things ENTIRELY out of senility.
“The Renaissance Disaster” below goes back to another of our BASICS:
Information, like every other human product, is produced for a REASON. Anything someone says should be looked at from this point of view as well as just finding an answer. This is where “Mommy Professor” came from. One minute the anti is an intellectual, the next he is a kid repeating what Mommy Professor said.
I regularly stop before answering any argument and think back over the BASICS. So I give antis hell when they say they are white by pointing out that they are like Communists bragging they are Americans. That is WHY they say that. They think that self-sacrifice is a virtue, so treason against their own kind is virtue. And I say this is insane.
I’ve tried it. No one has a comeback because it’s obviously true. They produced the information to look good and I made it look like the treason it is.
Don’t spit out the standard replies. Use OURS.
So WHY do we have Street Lamp History?
The results are barely beginning to filter down, but archeology and carbon dating and other science is ripping received history, The History of Mankind, to pieces. It will get worse yearly for standard historians, for Mommy Professor’s orthodoxy.
After all, what IS a standard historian? He is someone who deals exclusively in WRITINGS. He has to mention scientific breakthroughs, but he doesn’t understand them and he hates them.
At first historians handled science by concentrating on anything they could twist into political correctness. The Egyptians had pyramids? Well, the Incas had pyramids, too, so the white history is not so hot.
The “Out of Africa” stuff. But, as so many times before in history, our established religion is finding that science is getting out of hand. And while Mommy Professor has not changed “World History” one iota, everybody on the Internet is getting regular updates.
Historians are limited to quoting WRITERS. More important than the Library of Alexandria but never mentioned is the entire Persian literature was burned, the only hint of history and folk memory we may have had back to Mount Ararat on the Black Sea, the Flood.
This is easy to ignore because it doesn’t exist in the quotations historians rely on.
WHY is this information produced?
Historians love the Renaissance because it praises writers like them. The real development of Calculus is ignored by saying we stood on the shoulders of Euclid, who would not have had the slightest inkling of the what or even the why of advanced math. He produced a sophomore course of little serious value.
But he is a Giant to historians, because he can be CITED. Pages on which real Medieval mathematicians developed the Calculus were scratched out so that scarce lamb skins could be used for more copies of Euclid the Giant on whose shoulders we mere Western barbarians stood.
In other words, Mommy Professor rubbed out the complicated stuff and got more copies of what he could understand and quote. But the real development of Calculus is still there, though historians have carefully ignored it.
Mommy Professor can UNDERSTAND Euclid. To him Calculus is some kind of Babylonian god.
Mommy Professor’s “history” is a series of surviving quotations twisted to suit the agenda. It is Established Religion crap that makes a Moslem fundamentalist look literate and sane by comparison.
All this from BASICS.
I cannot forget the quote in Godfather II about the old man who sponsored the Cuba operation:
“He’s been dying of the same heart attack for twenty years.” The Godfather finally had to have the old bastard shot.
Brian is, LITERALLY, a lifesaver. He is so much in charge he seldom gets any mention. SysOps, who did Brian’s job before and for whom Brian took over, was also a literal lifesaver. My whining should be called leveling with you.
It is true that my doctors worried about my taking on this burden, on and on. But it is also true that people who have heart attacks commonly live longer than those who do NOT take care of themselves after age 60.
I am not crying on your shoulder. I am asking for help and you are delivering.
My health has improved greatly since you started pitching in. I am very useful to you, but it is also critical that I don’t perform the old man’s trick of standing in the way. So I delegate, and I tell you why it is CRITICAL both to the cause and to my health that I delegate.
This approach meets Bob’s Requirement Number One:
I hope to remain useful for two more decades, but I refuse to be your Buddha or your Guru. I have said it before and let me say it again: A manager who does NOT find people BETTER than he is is a FAILURE.
This may be one of the most important lessons I teach here.
Here or in SF!
Children are SO cruel!

In 1250, AD:
1) Every literate person knew the world was round;
3) Medical texts recommended taking fruits with Vitamin C, though of course it wasn’t specified, on board for long sea voyages. The Vikings never had scurvy;
3) Medical texts also routinely insisted that wounds be soaked in wine to avoid infection;
4) There was not, and never had been, a witch-burning hysteria. The Hammer of Witches was a RENAISSANCE document. The real Medieval Church, including the Inquisition, had viewed most witches as demented women;
5) Many castles had showers, only mechanically different from the ones we have today. Bathing was popular, but expensive and difficult for most. Saturday was bath day for the wealthy, as it had been for the “barbarians.” In one case before 1000 AD, an attack was launched on Saturday precisely because it was “bath day.” History records this and blithely goes on with the myth that barbarians did not bathe;
6) Higher math, Western math, the Calculus and the math of CHANGING relationships, was developed ENTIRELY in the Middle Ages. It was seriously retarded when the Renaissance brought in “Classical” math and tried to show how advanced math was a product of “The Ancients.” One mathematician took care of that by saying the Classical mathematicians were the real giants, and Medievals were only more advanced because “They stood on the shoulders of giants.”
The examples are endless.
7) In my youth, textbooks had a poor, crippled “map of the world” that was supposed to represent the Dark Ages, pre-Columbus, world view. As a matter of fact, it was the world map of the Classical Age, discovered by the Renaissance. The world which had discovered Greenland and which was trying to find a NEW way to reach the Far East was far, far beyond that poor, crippled thing.
That map was only used by Renaissance “scholars.”
The Renaissance caused Luther and his followers to assume that only Hebrew Scriptures were true Old Testament. This was nonsense. The New Testament was written by HELLENIC Jews whose entire Bible was in GREEK.
On and on it goes.
The Renaissance was an intellectual DISASTER.
One of my favorite true stories is about a famous writer who got crabby and got his comeupance. It happens to me here all the time.
He replied to a letter where a reader had a question by saying, “I am sick and tired of letters like this that are written just to get my signature.”
The recipient of this nasty note cut his signature out of the letter and sent it back to him.
Served the bastard right!
But answering letters does cost a writer his stock in trade: writing time and effort. It costs him money, but correspondence is also his life’s blood. He needs that feedback. It is worth money to him.
I talked below about discipline. People always ask a writer how to get published, but, like the centurion who has troops who forget to recite, “Throw the pilum first,” you know that the person who comes up to you to ask this is not listening.
You could do endless good by hitting your favorite writers with the Mantra. Take it from me, writers DO look at what you write to them, IF YOU DO IT RIGHT.
Once again, what I have to say is common sense, but few will really hear me.
First of all, writers –- or the assistants who are paid to cull out the obvious spam before it reaches the writer — take about five seconds to dismiss it. If it is long and preachy, out it goes. If it says what has been said, it goes into the “This is another letter about X.” This is not useless, because it goes into the X file, like congressional correspondence. But the writer or congressman is interested in your missive on a purely statistical basis, “One more letter protesting X.”
Enough of those and he will change his stance on X or not write a one-sided piece later. But he will not really READ what you say. You are an important statistic, but a statistic only.
A writer or an editor or the culler instantly recognizes whether your letter is written TO HIM. This is a DISCIPLINE. You have to have read and show interest in the writer’s WRITING or the editor’s MAGAZINE.
Once again, I have explained this obvious point to lots of people, and they promptly forget it when they do the writing. They send out a note about what they are thinking that could be written to anybody. That won’t make it past the culler.
You have to remember that you are writing to a person who PRACTICES writing discipline.
I see my concepts showing up in writers I have written to. More important, it joins the conversation among writers if you make it interesting. Publications remain politically correct, but most writers hate at least some of it. Make what you say interesting IN THEIR WORLD.
What I do is make a SHORT point about something HE wrote, quoting it. Then I might add, “I wish you wouldn’t be so politically correct on the racial stuff. I know it sounds paranoid, but all this “anti-racism seems to me to come down to “Asia for Asians, Africa for the Africans, and white countries for everybody.”
No, don’t explain WHY you said that. The most obvious sign of spam is hammering on how innocent it is.
It is point that bothers you, not spam. Keep it there.
After that short digression, I try to make another point ABOUT HIS WRITING, one that will interest him. This is professional level work. This is WORK and DISCIPLINE. It doesn’t look like spam because it ISN’T.
Don’t try to fool a pro. Any writer you are really INTERESTED in and THINK about can be reached with our message. If all you are really interested in is making that point, he will smell it. That why I specified, “your favorite writers” above.
No, it won’t lead to his getting on his knees and converting. But it has a HUGE effect torchlight parade types cannot see
For forty years, we were constantly reminded that Saint John the Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963. Now that we know more about him, so this obsession has vanished.
C.S. Lewis also died on November 22, 1963. It was, of course, not even a footnote.
Shortly before his death, Lewis said, “It’s in God’s hands. I can live on or be called. But now I would rather be called.” He was not concerned about fame anyway. He felt that death meant more for him than an obituary.
Z is concentrating on my radio broadcasts, and is getting a lot out of them. He asks me to do more.
But it was also Z who EXPLAINED why I don’t:
“As Bob has pointed out, he can’t teach advanced calculus if you don’t know the multiplication tables. Maybe you should go learn the multiplication tables first, before you attend class here? Go to Stormfront and ask these questions, this will only distract us.”
One major reason I don’t do more is because I have to keep reteaching the basics. I am a teacher. I have to keep hammering away at the Mantra, but definitely not because if is fun for me to do so. You think YOU are bored hearing about it? Try it from my end!
It is like a priest who, after forty years of hearing confessions, secretly wishes that SOMEBODY would come up with one novel sin! Every time a lot of comments go by WITHOUT repeating and extending on the BASICS, I have to go back again. There is no way for me to know, by some psychic means, that you really mean to go from the basics.
I have a lifetime of experience fighting from the basic training, and teaching how to do it. I have spent hundreds of hours prepping congressmen and candidates and senators and the rest for critical debates and testimony in important hearings. I have heard, “Yes, Bob, PLEASE don’t say that again, I will REMEMBER that point.” I have then sat there watching C-Span as they missed the opportunity to make the point that would have cinched it. The perfect opportunity is lost.
You’ve been in that position. How many times has somebody said that they will remember something critical to the point where they asked you to stop repeating it, and then totally forgotten it when the crunch came?
The Mantra is just a good example of this. How many times, after ramming the point home, did a Roman centurion listen to a soldier list the steps for battle and forget throwing the pilum?
I am here because I am good at this. I am here because I got PAID for this.
There are a lot more basics than the Mantra. There is “Heresy!” But if you forget the Mantra, you will surely forget the follow-up. Most important, you cannot argue sticking to the LOGIC of the Mantra. When someone gets off on why white countries deserve immigration because of colonialism, you must not answer THAT. You must reply, “You are JUSTIFYING GENOCIDE.”
There is room for though and variation, but it must be VARIATION FROM THE BASICS.
I would LOVE to be able to go on into new things with new broadcasts, but every time you seem to be wandering, I have to go back again. This is not disrespect for you. I have had to do this with everybody right up to President Reagan and my hero and mentor John Ashbrook.
This is why, in Western Civilizations, fields of study are called DISCIPLINES. They are not disciplines in places where an “intellectual” is someone who dribbles nonsense that sounds good. Intellectualism is not free association. In a serious discussion, if you wander off into clichés the way they do in the East, you will be laughed at. That is why, as Back Bay Grouch pointed out, sociology is a joke.
Anyone I think is qualified to be here should be insulted if I let you off the hook.
Many, many times I am ready to write something that interests me and might interest you, but someone is back off a side dribble. So with a deep sigh I go off to bring the wandering sheep back into the fold.
What a good teacher teaches depends on the students. I cannot put in new stuff until you absorb the old and make this a DISCIPLINE.
Tighten it up, gang, and I can have more fun.
“Robert Whitaker’s writing and audios are the prose of loyalty. That is all they are. There is no other agenda in those writings and audio but loyalty.”
Life is baked in the cake traumatic. That’s why all the suffering along the way seems so darned prosaic.
But the problem with the Greatest Generation is that they got cut a deal they didn’t deserve AFTER THE WAR. And if there ever was a generation that was emblematic of why it is bad for people to get cut deals they don’t deserve, it was they.
They completely lost sight of the meaning of loyalty, the singular most pressing problem we are dealing with today.
And this is the real reason so many of our “white nationalists” get lost. They are unable to come to grips with the real issue, as it is hard to find your way home once you are truly lost. Another way of saying this is that they live in the same environment everybody else lives in and that is an environment where people ARE NOT held accountable and severely punished for disloyalty.
Who gets let into our country and who gets political rights is not a matter of philosophy. The policy followed by the Greatest Generation was an insanity that cannot be responded to by any form of coping.
There is no means of disposing of the divisions they insinuated into American life.
One can either be goddamned loyal or one can either be goddamned killed. That is what is really comes down to. There is no dancing around it, this, the real arithmetic of the “body politic”.
Robert Whitaker’s writing and audios are the prose of loyalty. That is all they are. There is no other agenda in those writings and audio but loyalty.
And the more I have come to understand this, the angrier it makes me that are those out there that cannot deal with that simple fact. It is flat out an outrage.
Accordingly, I wonder if the other participants really get the larger picture, the larger picture that Robert Whitaker is really responding to in doing all of this.
THOSE BASTARDS THAT CALL THEMSELVES THE GREATEST GENERATION RUINED US. THEY LITERALLY SENT US TO HELL.
But if we have to go the hell to relearn loyalty, so be it, because that is what is really going on. This is about loyalty, nothing else.
The more clearly you see that, the more clearly you are on the right track.
“Thanks AFKAN. I might have been too tough on Ian, and I hope he is not too sensitive. I’m sometimes forgetful that most are not like me.”
jogged this thought into print here:
“Bob has been here and done that,” that phrase in “About Bob” was written nine years ago by someone else, and it can’t be improved upon. It also allows me to make a point.
There are a lot of people who are legitimately in psycho wars from doing part of what I did. But obviously they were not capable of being there, doing that, and COMING BACK. Mercs and lot of combat flyers actually ENJOYED what put normal people in the wards.
But in the real world, this is not all that important. That is, it is very critical to ONESSELF whether he is “brave and can take it “ or not. If your big concern is your own image in your own eyes, it is the most important thing in the world. People like the World War II Generation, who gave away EVERYTHING and have only this claim to any bravery at all, depend on it absolutely.
But no war hero ever made the slightest difference in REAL WORLD history.
Truer words was never spoke than a reply to the Greatest Generation types in the 60s who were bemoaning the Peaceniks:
“Before you ask where young people are coming TO, you might ask where they came FROM.”
Like neoconservatives who insist that liberals were right until one particular date when liberalism went wrong, the Greatest Generation cannot AFFORD to face the fact that there was something fundamentally wrong about THEM.
The only important thing about me being there and doing that and coming back—sort of, I’m on psychological disability — is that it may help you BELIEVE some points I make. Some people cannot live with the memory of part of my life. Others took it well and went right on, better than I did.
But the point you can use here is made by a man who said two centuries ago,
“Nothing concentrates the mind like the fact that one is to be hanged on the morrow.”
So when I say that the cause is everything to me, I MEAN it. When I tell you being isolated by conservatives and our own comrades really doesn’t affect me, I MEAN it. Otherwise I would be in a ding-a-ling ward over MUCH worse things.
To me, my good name is entirely an asset to what I am trying to do. I want it used to that end. I CARE what you think of me, but my whole life makes it clear what my priorities are. This can make me ruthless TOWARD you, which is the fault that gets me isolated.
I treasure my group. I treasure our leaders. But your opinion of me is NOT my priority.
Not even close. This is not normal.
I am a staffer, not a leader. I am a staffer damned few leaders want around them, because leadership REQUIRES the delicate feel for ego that is too much absent in me. I am a loose cannon, to be set in place and USED by those who have the feel for it, i.e., leaders.
A leader like Ashbrook or Bill Rusher who could USE is not just a rare bird, he is damned near unique.
You of BUGS use me right. The coach has [played as well as he can. He is sending YOU out in the field to do YOUR thing. A coach who is obsessed with your opinion of him is no coach at all.
Win and you are welcome to bitch yourself hoarse.
It is almost impossible for most people to really EMPATHIZE with this. If I say I am isolated, it sounds like I am complaining. Actually it is a natural part of leaders and me doing our respective jobs.
All this, in short, is part of what I always talk about, what the world is REALLY like. My ego is not in it in a way that people understand. The importance of this fact is fully explained above. There ain’t no more to it.
Thanks AFKAN. I might have been too tough on Ian, and I hope he is not too sensitive. I’m sometimes forgetful that most are not like me. Still this secret plans stuff in essence leaves most people defenseless when the spotlight of the wreckers singles you out. Many years ago Don Black wrote something directed towards posters on his site that I found useful, “if you won’t say it in a Federal court don’t say it here.” I like the Mantra, and if I had a world audience for my show trial it would come first and be repeated as punctuation.
Simmons shows his professional side. On Capitol Hill, we used to say, “If you don’t want to see it on the front page of the Washington Post, don’t write it down.”
Reguklar conservatives are amateurs and, above all, DUMB. Smart people have to be loners. The main part of professional consefrvztive time is spent with “It’s all HOPELESS” or not.
Sound familiar? So naturally no one else even understands the point I make about the ironic usefulness of media bias.
Ironically, because of its blind, slavering hatred (look at Rosie!) the media actually DID ITS JOB in the case of serious right-wingers. Teddy Kennedy had to ltierally kill somebody before his out-of-control antics were even mentioned.
One percent of that would have made one of us literally front-page news long before she drowned.
The exception really proves the rule. We finally got a couple of BAD scandals. Two fo our congressmen were not only queer, but went overboard. But the press id NOT do its job with them. The media could not “out” a homo. So we didn’t know. Anything else like that on the part of hard-right congressmen would have been, literally, front page news. Try to imagine Reagan getting away with one percent of Clinton’s hetero stuff!
In fact, we depended so much on the media to bare any scandals that we got caught with our pants down — Gee, what an unfortunate turn of phrase! — on the queer stuff. Otherwise the mdedia allowed us the luxury of assuming that everybody on our side was throughly vetted across the board.
The reason I cut off the rest of Santiago’s comment was specific.
First of all he came up with a “Not the Mantra” — the good old NTM — so AFKAN endorsed it enthusiastically. It is “Civilization is a White Thing!”
What the hell does THAT do for us? “Asia for Asians, Africa for hte Africans, White Countries for Everybody” is as shoprt and makes a point that will NEVER be made otherwise.
“Civilization is a White Thing” is more staisfying, more insulting, if that is what you’re in this for. It is also a major distraction. Every bumper sticker with that does NOT have “Asia for the Asians, Africa for the Africans, White Countries for Everybdoy!”
In the meantime, I will do the drudge job of sticking to discipline. I LONG to talk about more interesting things, about political strategy in the next age. But as long as I have to keep saying the above, again and again and again and again and again, like pushing toothpaste back into a tube, all I get to do is BORING.
I won’t even spell-check this one.
I was recently in Argentina and made gratuitous use of the mantra and it was well received indeed.
I attended a gathering of Waffen SS vets and their families and I have never before seen so many young people with their kinder. People were in attendance form all over the world and talk was of the ongoing collapse of the current multi-racial, democratic paradigm. Our people in Europe have already planned for the aftermath, in detail. It is rather length but I will post up some details of this “manifesto” later on today or tomorrow. Heck, I am feeling even more optimistic than usually, and that’s saying something!
Remember, filth, evil and decandence is always purged eventually, it is the order of things. Our Robespierres, Caesers, Napoleans and Hitlers will soon arrive on the scene and the current evil, filthy order will be swept away like a cardboard shack in a tornado! Politcal, economic and social systems are transitory but La Raza Blanca will endure forever.
