From NBC News:

Influential neo-Nazi eats at soup kitchens, lives in government housing

In his writings, James Mason advocates waging war against “the system.” But at 67 and living in Denver, he’s now dependent on it.

Nov. 26, 2019, 1:01 PM PST
By Anna Schecter and Rich Schapiro

… The 67-year-old white supremacist lives in a government subsidized apartment in Denver and eats at soup kitchens.

In a brief interview last week, a few days after he was spotted picking up a meal at a city-run center for “homeless and hungry seniors,” Mason said he sees no contradiction between his writings and his lifestyle.

“Guerilla warfare, man. Guerilla warfare,” Mason told NBC’s Denver affiliate KUSA. “You’ve gotta take what you have to get what you need.”

In contrast,

Influential paleo-Communist paid to lecture on campuses, give press conference at Sundance announcing her own biopic

“In 1970, Angela Davis purchased firearms for people who used them in an armed takeover of a courtroom in Marin County, California, in which four people were killed.”

Currently, Davis, the 75-year-old black Communist and Professor Emerita at US Santa Cruz, is helping produce a feature film biopic about herself announced at the 2019 Sundance Festival when her busy campus speaking schedule allows. Last year, Harvard proudly announced it had acquired her papers.

I wouldn’t have thought that she would matter much to British or international students born around the turn of the 21st century, but I guess she matters to the middle-aged administrators.

    I think it more comes down the personalities of these political extremes and frankly, that is why the right loses out. A primary motive for many on the right is a lack of empathy and kind of begrudgery. A motivation of many right-wing nationalists is not ingroup empathy or solidarity (I saw some from the ‘alt-right’ praising Macron for his anti-union plans) but outgroup hatred. These traits come from personality types that people naturally recoil from.

    By contrast, a great many liberals and SJWs are genuinely motivated by empathy and collective concern, even if many of those from ‘protected classes’ for whom such policies are not a form of group or individual sacrifice, often seem to have much in common with far right nationalists (Cenk Uygur was explicitly a turbo Turkish nationalist in his youth) personality-wise and not so much what we’re used to in terms of left wing nationalists in Europe.

    Despite global warming being very real, many on the right deny it simply because they don’t like the kind of people who most prioritise the environment. (Or because they are right wing libertarians and don’t like the implications of limits to growth) This is an exact symmetry with regards to immigration restriction the other way. There is no problem with immigration, we need more immigrants etc…

    People don’t remember what you said, they remember how you made them feel. I think everyone could learn from that.

    Didn’t she once pose with Valentina Tereshkova? Yes, I know she did – it is a funny commentary on affirmative action in space. BTW, Soviets also put a black Cuban up there before US had any blacks or Hispanics, let alone “blacks AND Hispanics.”

    But then the shuttle came along and the US won the diversity space race because the shuttle had more seats and the US had more money, as the USSR was collapsing. Though, the shuttle was not exactly kind to smart black Americans. That is why we need to go “black to the moon” – sending smart black men through the ionizing radiation of the Van Allen belts to the furthest point man has even been from the earth – and maybe a bit further (records are meant to be broken), sounds like a pretty clever prog plan, to inspire the blacks that don’t do well in school, to attain PhDs, does it not?

    OT

    My idea for a new browser extension: Highlight somehow, such as with various pastel background colors, the identity of the writer of an article. For instance, on the top page of the New Yorker, highlight each article link by a color showing, e.g., Christian ancestry whites, Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, etc. With intersectionality, this could get unwieldy very fast, so some simplification would be necessary. Or different views: The Race and Ethnicity View, the Sex and Gender Identification View, the Citizenship View, The Domicile View (New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, D.C., Flyover, Overseas).

    This would require a database of journalists and opinion writers, an Identity Database, and because crowdsourcing would lead to vandalism, some trusted party would have to moderate edits, along the lines of code check-in in some open source software projects. The plug-in itself would have to rely on fragile and customized screen-scraping and modification of HTML, so the number of publications that could be covered and maintained would need to be limited. The Identity Database could also be used by a robot app to crawl archives and generate historical data about author identity at a publication.

    @Buzz Mohawk

    He called those ads his going-out-of-business sale.

  35. Having actually been on the inside of a so-called “white supremist organization”, and having met the high panjandrums of several bigger ones, the difference in funding between communist and black supremist and mestizo/indigenous supremist organizations and the “white power crowd” is astonishing. It is orders of magnitude in difference in favor of the left.

    The only even vaguely well funded white outfit I can think of was William Pierce’s National Alliance in its heyday. Pierce got between a quarter and half a mil in stolen Brinks loot handed to him by the Robert Mathews operation, and he had a book and record distribution business and Local Units in various cities that actually generated some cash flow. He was not worth a hundredth of what the SPLC was. Maybe not a thousandth.

    Our Christian Identity organization once researched opening a radio station. We went to the NRB convention and saw how an outfit like Bott worked. We decided that a shortwave station would be our best bet, with the future possibility of simulcasting our audio on the then-new internet. The economics of running a 50 kW transmitter and maintaining an antenna were an order of magnitude in excess of what we realistically could do. At that time Pete Peters was probably the number one CI broadcaster and he was just buying airtime on WWCR and local AMs like KAAY.

    Our theology was quite a bit different than Peters’ and Scriptures for America. We never called for the death penalty for homosexuality, adultery or abortion, we had nothing to do with David Icke-ism, and focused on community-building on a voluntary basis. In this, the pastor’s primary inspiration was, unlikely enough, Stewart Brand’s Whole Earth Catalogue.We certainly advised against miscegenation, but openly offered to work with black or Native American groups to help them establish their own organizations. Our problem was the same as most other white outfits, CI, Cosmotheist, nonreligious, whatever: the people we appealed to were people with no money and people with money who agreed with us were too chickenshit scared to even mail us a grocery store money order.

    The people currently involved with “the white thing” are the people for whom the status quo is not working out very well. Unlike most people, this gives me a reason to think that in the long run “the white thing” is not over, because I therefore figure that when large numbers of whites are not doing very well in the future, they will be far more approachable. Pierce always said that he would love nothing more than to make a lot of white people poor, hungry, cold, and scared, because then they would be amenable to listening. At one time we called this the Stacy’s Mom Theory, from the protagonist’s line, ” and since your dad walked out your mom could use a guy like me”.

    LOL. An amazing bit of brazen lying and projection by the above commentator.

    Apart from the sheer nonsense of claiming that Macron, of all people, is praised by the alt-right — whereas in fact the alt-right despises him as the worst kind of globalist — one of the prime motivations of the actual alt-right precisely is empathy for poorer whites, because they (correctly) see poorer whites as being despised by America’s hostile elite in general and by their mortal enemies in specific: the neocon vipers such as Bill Kristol and Kevin Williamson, both of whom have explicitly advocated for mass immigration as a way to hurt the “unproductive” poorer white class.

    Even in this comment thread, there exists a sneering contempt for a white person who uses soup kitchens. The alt-right, while it disagrees with WN 1.0 on many groups, would have nothing but empathy for him.

    Not only do we of the so-called Alt Right remember what people said, we remind them of it and call their attention to their errors in fact or reasoning. And that hurts their feelings, as you have pointed out.

    It’s not that we’re not empathetic, it’s just that in any group there will be many, if not most, who are too wooly-headed to figure things out and get them right. And too, there will be sizable chunks of the population, various ethnies and races, who actively oppose the welfare of other groups. These wreckers will do everything in their power to gum up the works as long as it advances what they perceive to be their self interest. In a “diverse” nation this is a given.

    The place I’d quibble is that extreme lefties are often power hungry mirrors of those on the extreme right and good at manipulating Nice White Ladies and intellectual types who want to be on the Right Side of History. Their ability to use compassion as a cudgel is quite effective. With the decline of Christianity, social justice is turning out to be a pretty effective substitute (even if, like me, you don’t like what it does and would gladly convert to Christianity if that would make it go away).

    Conversely, who populates the center-right? Businessmen and the military, for whom competence is a major qualifier (for the latter it is literally life and death). These guys don’t seem very *effective*. Also, I imagine a lot of the military still believes in the Framers, the Constitution, etc. (someone with actual service please correct me), and the Nazi stuff goes against all that. Fascism really is un-American. As for the businessmen, if I wanted to be sarcastic, I’d say that Jews have more money than antisemites, at least in the USA.

    About the immigration thing: a lot of people are against too much immigration but think some is OK. Both sides have become extreme on this, but Trump has failed to capitalize on it (he’s done so politically, but we haven’t seen a wall or e-Verify), and now the other side is going to get a chance. I am not optimistic.

One day, as I started through the doorway leading to the judges’ chambers, a guy in a wheelchair rammed me in the shins while demanding, “who the hell are you?” I explained, and Gary Thomas let me through.

    A great example of how conservatives understand liberals, but liberals do not understand conservatives. And Science proves it!

    A primary motive for many on the right is a lack of empathy and kind of begrudgery. A motivation of many right-wing nationalists is not ingroup empathy or solidarity (I saw some from the ‘alt-right’ praising Macron for his anti-union plans) but outgroup hatred.

    The “Alt Right” was famously known as economically populist and not at all reflexively anti-union; I don’t recall a single “Alt Right” type praising Macron for anything, much less he neo-liberal economic policies which were overwhelming condemned by the Alt Right.

    The idea that “the right” lacks empathy and it really motivated not by their own ingroup concerns but “outgroup hatred” is a typical neo-liberal talking point with no evidence behind it. It’s a great example of their own projection, as they clearly hate working class whites, far more than they have any concern for, say, Blacks or immigrants.

    The projection is obvious: they pretend to champion the interests of non-whites out of hatred of, and wish to do harm to, whites.

    Literal advocacy of political violence in German media. The people depicted getting murdered here are all prominent living right-wing government-critical politicians, in office or standing for office or expected to run.

    Now, Germans have this confused explanation of why they don’t have freedom of speech (the true explanation is of course because they are a conquered nation with an imposed constitution), and they usually work with some variant of advocacy of violence not being free speech, which is a sound beginning consistent with our own law, except that modern German law has almost never had a problem with leftist violence against right-wingers. Basically you’re licensed to destroy property and possibly kill, up to the point where you are a top level international terrorist with contacts NATO is afraid of, and then they’ll start to pay attention. But if you just torch a car or punch a “Nazi,” well, it’s youthful indiscretion. And it’s not like you’re criticizing the government.

    I love it. “The Stacy’s Mom Theory”!!

    Even Don Lancaster doesn’t come up with stuff that good. Of course, the problem with Donzi is not that he isn’t funny once. The problem is he says the same crap over and over for forty years.

    By the way, PostScript is a page description language, and (rightly or wrongly) a largely deprecated one at that.

    Sir Rod had a little fun, didn’t he? More, I’d guess, than Sir Ray.

    The LA Weekly was once, by the strained standard of semi-corporate metropolitan restaurant/smut guides, a B.S.D. in that market segment. Nobody’s ever heard of the spin-off you’re referencing. Well, except for Ron Unz, the one known fan of the obnoxious “How To Be A Mexican” columnist they had.

    I think it more comes down the personalities of these political extremes and frankly, that is why the right loses out. A primary motive for many on the right is a lack of empathy and kind of begrudgery. A motivation of many right-wing nationalists is not ingroup empathy or solidarity….but outgroup hatred.

    I think there’s a lot of truth in that. It’s one of the many reasons that normies tend to view right-wingers as unpleasant people.

    People don’t remember what you said, they remember how you made them feel. I think everyone could learn from that.

    Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing is a matter of opinion, but it’s certainly true.

    The Right is very bad at conveying positive emotions and very good at conveying negative emotions. It’s a recipe for defeat.

    We lived in Marin at the time. Marin stayed Democrat though, even though Davis and other defendants got off.

    Sister heard Davis speak once. It was free and at a college a few blocks away. My sister said Davis was just a rambling, incoherent idiot . Remember, she was raised in a hard left Quaker home ( White Family) and went to a communist Quaker high school along with terrorist Kathy Boudin.

    Your brainstorm reminds me of those nth-wave Christian evangelical groups selling Porn Prevention browser add-ons. Those are like, a whole 20-25% effective at blocking graphic sexual imagery from any given site on the Hustler-Tumblr-Youtube- spectrum.

    For the record I do support requirements on Big Porn shops to use a router-restricted TLD, e.g. .xxx, and have their bank accounts frozen for failing to stay up-to-date with the relevant blacklist registries. But there’s no regulatory solution to prevent crass, fame-whore Joe/Jane Sixpack uploading their own sex tapes to redundant cloud backup services; so the anti-normalization horse’s old barn is merely NPR “vanishing heartland heritage” fodder at this point

    He wasn’t masculine apart from his military service and it’s a reasonable guess he was a latent homosexual. As for ‘taking power’, his organization was inconsequential prior to 1930. Him taking power required a perfect storm of failure by the German political class.

  77. Libertarianism is a simple concept that has nothing to say about growth or no growth. It is about self-ownership and choice. As a libertarian, you can choose to simplfy your life and aschew economic growth.
    The empathy that non-libertarians feel tends to be highly selective. Their ‘feelings’ are a combination of love and hate: love for the in-group and hate for the scapegoats. The SJW’s say they love the working class, but then they smash the places that provide the working class with a source of income. Thanks for the love.

    By contrast, a great many liberals and SJWs are genuinely motivated by empathy and collective concern,

    Disagree. Hubert Humphrey was genuinely concerned. A great deal of what he advocated had troublesome side-effects. He died > 40 years ago. His cohort was not like subsequent cohorts. Among subsequent cohorts, you had an escalating problem with sentiment detached from practical implementation. That aside, most of the left nowadays is engaged in status games. The name of the game is to redistribute income and discretion to certain occupational guilds at the expense of everyone else and to build patron-client relations between those guilds and designated mascot groups. There isn’t one decent thing about the whole exercise.
