    The Alt-Right’s Asian Fetish (Audrea Lim): My blog has been recognized as an alt-right forum by the NYT, cool.

  • @Duke of Qin
    I don't like anyone who lived north of the Ordos loop circa 200 BC. But to give a less flip answer, basically any people descendant from the barbarians that emerged from Eurasian steppe in antiquity. Huns, Avars, Alans included. These bastards ruin civilization wherever they go and they still do. I fully support any Greek maximalist who want to reclaim their Anatolian holdings and booting those invaders off Cyprus too.

    Qin was a fiefdom, one of those granted by the Kings of Zhou, the first Chinese polity, to the Ying clan. A descendant of whom became the first emperor. Think of a European title like the Duke of Anjou. If a descendant of that Duke became emperor, he would rename the entire state the Empire of Anjou. That is where Chinese Dynastic state names tend to get their origin from, a practice that remained in effect until around 1280. Another tradition ruined by barbarians.

    Dude you are so fucking weird, Jesus Christ. Cucklin, why does fringe politics attract so many weird people?

  • @Duke of Qin
    You would probably be less amused if you knew which injustices I had in mind Turk. My enmities are a little more primal and ancient than the mere opium wars which were a farce. I am a Han racialist and not a Chinese nationalist. Oh I have no love for the perfidious Albion and am smirking at the prospect at her being annihilated by self inflicted barbarian hordes. It's just that given the option I'd rather have the road from Xian to Constantinople lined with gibbets filled with your kinsmen, the stinking degenerate steppe nomad.

    Chinks vs T*rks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Come buy your tickets ladies and gentlemen!!!

    Best seats in the house!!

  • There have been a number of stories in recent weeks suggesting that Australia is falling into China's Sphere of Influence. For example, from the Australian Broadcasting Company:
  • @Samuel Skinner
    Why would they do that? Just genetically engineer the Chinese to be superior and build robots to do unskilled labor. Helping potential competitors is just stupid and shortsighted.

    Why? Why not. They will genetically engineer Chinese in China, and genetically engineer Africans in Africa, Europeans in Europe and so on. Competition ultimately increases the GDP of the world, and more competition means more production.

  • Hopefully the Chinese accelerate research at the Beijing Genomics Institute, discover genes linked to IQ, and immediately undertake IQ-boosting programs globally run by Chinese corporations. In a two or three generations they could boost Africa’s, South America’s IQ by 30 points, and create new economic middle classes out of thin air. Doing this will be in the interest of the Chinese as they can then shift their manufacturing abroad and they would have then created new consumers to buy their stuff.

    This is the really terrifying scenario of globalists taking over the world, not poverty. Imagine global GDP growing by 500%, our planet will be devastated in a century.

    OTOH, if they can create a race of genetically engineered super-geniuses, surely they can figure out how to control the weather.

  • Though presented as an anti-corruption campaign, there's no real doubt that it is politically motivated (at any rate MbS sure enjoys the sweet life himself). I agree with Alexander Mercouris (read his excellent article) that the intent is to transform Saudi Arabia from the nepotistic monarchy it is today to a modernizing autocracy centered around...
  • @reiner Tor
    The crown prince is unfortunately totally ignorant of HBD. This is one instance where HBD knowledge would be helpful to those (or their leaders) who are deemed "inferior" by HBD. Like, once you acknowledge that Arabs are Arabs and will always be Arabs (the crown prince must know that implicitly, but it's much less useful than explicit knowledge), he would forget about wasting a lot of resources on

    - building hi-tech cities and "innovation centers" or whatever
    - buying more weapons than are necessary to provide for security (his army won't be able to use them)
    - starting wars (see above)

    On the other hand, he might try to break cousin marriage patterns, which would result in a more talented generation within a few decades (i.e. within the lifetime of the crown prince). He might try to think about what are the economic activities which are still suited for a dumb and lazy people with a strict and xenophobic religion. (I can't think of any, but I didn't think much about it.)

    Of course, if he were smart, he wouldn't spend money on a yacht.

    Why break cousin marriage patterns only? Somebody get me the prince’s phone number or e-mail. We must convince the saudis to invest in the Beijing Genomics Institute research of IQ, so that we can build genetic engineering centers in the muslim world populous centers like Anatolia, Iranian plateau and increase IQ to above all world population levels. All you do is Crispr-cas9.

    It is my belief that HBD facts should be publicly discussed by all muslim imams, mullahs, religious leaders. We must to eugenics-IQ jihad. The Chinese will help us with this. There is hundreds of billions of dollars in wealth owned by Arabian royal houses, they need to be given HBD and genetic presentations to convince them to invest in BGI research.

  • The conventional view of nationalism is that it was a product of mass literacy and the modern state, underpinned by schoolbooks and Tombs of the Unknown Soldier. Recent years have seen challenges to this historiographic consensus at both a general level (e.g. Azar Gat's Nations), and with respect to specific peoples (Robert Tomb's recent The...
  • @Andrei Martyanov

    Any submarine but especially so so called boomers, that is nuclear subs carrying Sea Launched Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, each with MIRV--Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicles (in layman's lingo--warheads)--are a national treasure for nations such as Russia, US or UK since are nuclear deterrents. They go to ocean and disappear on combat patrol being in immediate readiness to launch against any target. In order to do that--submarine and its systems require an incredibly precise knowledge of its position (geographic coordinates) and this information (including the positioning of the platforms in missiles themselves) and an ability to provide it for the on-board computers both on the sub (launch systems) and missile itself. To do so, as early as late 1960s a gyro-inertial navigational complexes had been developed--the reason they are called such is because at that time gyro-stabilized (usually three) platforms were used, with platforms housing accelerators which could (I omit here details of integration of parameters) give every moment an extremely precise position of the submarine even during dead-reckoning. But not only that--other means of (if needed) correction and "updating" missile were also used including very sophisticated Satellite navigation systems (Parus) Doppler logs and optronic systems which allowed to fix own position with minimal to no exposure for submarine. These complexes started to be installed on a strategic missile submarines of the Soviet Navy starting from projects 667B and BD. By 1980s all Soviet nuclear subs carried extremely reliable and precise complexes which allowed to provide all necessary data to on-board weapon systems and CICS (Combat Informational Control Systems). Today many of those functions are done with the use of laser gyroscopes and every modern combat ship and sub in Russia is equipped (I assume the same is the case in US Navy or PLAN) with excellent tactics-navigation suite, which allows to fight the battle (including complex maneuvering) under any conditions. Hope this answers your question.

    Yeah, Doc Zhivago probably had more impact in the West, especially with Lean’s blockbuster movie.
     
    Forgot to respond to that. Yes, true and this pattern of the West seeing what it wants to see not what really is continues today with major geopolitical ramifications. But West is not capable of learning anymore. I am sure Western elites all read Solzhenitsyn as a "historian", I doubt any of them, bar some very few exceptions, finished War and Peace or Road to Calvary.

    What makes you think so?

    Simply that nationalism is a reaction to attacks on community A (defined by ethnicity, religion, race, or social class) by community B (defined likewise). If community A is isolated from community B, then community A will soon start squabbling within itself. Only in the presence of a external threat does community A solidify and emerge as distinct group.

    In general, since the bronze age, these concentric circles have been expanding, from small city states to large regional kingdoms, to empires, to gigantic civilizational blocks like Christendom.

    In this particular case, I think the ethnogenesis of the Slavic peoples is quite recent (relatively speaking) at around 1,500 years ago. You can read old church slavonic and see that is quite close to proto-slavic. Slavic first split into West Slavic; which is now Polish, Czech and Slovak, and into East Slavic; which is now Russian, Ukrainian, and Belarusian, and into South Slavic; Serbo-Croat, etc.

    The original Russian state was centered on the the Golden Ring of Russian cities, northeast of Moscow. If anyone has any good reading material on the formation of the early Russian state, in Russian or English, please let me know, as I want to know more about this topic. Preferably something with original texts and documents directly referred to and quoted in the text.

    I mostly agree with (your?) thesis that Islamism is in some ways the Muslim world's version of the Alt Right, although with the rather big difference that they are racial egalitarians. I do think it is a dead end because fundamentalist religion's innate obscurantism makes scientific and technological progress very hard and drives away the brighter people, but if you want to have an Islamic State within your exclusive territory, then I suppose I don't have any cardinal issues with that.

    But peaceful co-existence is made untenable by Islamic expansionism. For instance, what is possibly Russia's premier Islamist journal Orda1313 considers all of Eurasia to be core Islamic territory on the basis that the Golden Horde became Muslim in 1313. But remember that White nationalists are not Trudeau (if you kill your enemies you lose); what is good for the goose is good for the gander, and the military potential of even relatively small subsets of the European world are far in excess of anything that Islam can muster. So in your place, I would be very wary of White nationalists who claim to support radical Islamists. In all likelihood, just like the Germans who smuggled Lenin into Russia, they are thinking not of doing your a favor but of preparing the groundwork for deus vult.

    Totally agree with you, it has created horrible situations where the choice might eventually be between accepting something like Lebanon or even national exstinction and trying to reverse the situation with rather extreme methods (as Jean Raspail has put it, someone who wants to save the nation might well put his own soul in danger...I'm not religious, but I sort of agree). It's a tragic situation. And the worst thing is, it was totally avoidable and there were plenty of people (like Enoch Powell in Britain, but also many lesser-known ones) that warned against it.

    That's also one of the reasons I'm happy about Trump's success (the other is that armed conflict with Russia now seems much less likely). I'm fairly pessimistic about my own country though; due to Merkel's lunacy we're running out of time fast. Yesterday I read about a prognosis by the university of Tübingen that Germany will have about 7 million Muslims in 2030, most of them of course in the former West Germany in whose cities Germans will be a minority. It will be very hard to stop or reverse this process. But yes, Trump's campaign does offer at least a glimmer of hope that not all might be lost.

    I think you're exaggerating about Armenians (there really aren't that many of them in Turkey anymore, are there?), but you might have a point about Kurds - aren't they set to become a majority some time in the 2040s or so? I can see how that might disturb nationally minded Turks, but unless you're getting rid of the southeast and build a border wall, you'll probably have to accept it, I suppose.

    • Replies: @random observer
    Based on that citation above, I would expect Uthan the Perverse to disagree about the dark eldar.

    The dark eldar are a splinter of the eldar, representing one fragment of their decadence, not a complete culture. They are a subculture barely hanging on to survival against being absorbed by Chaos, and much of their predation is necessary to strengthen their power solely as a means to ward off disintegration and absorption by chaos. They are evil to the nth power, but underlying it is an element of desperation.

    And their arrival in this state, a product of the near annihilation of the Eldar civilization, and the approach they take to maintaining it, are precisely the product of their superior intellect and the fact that they "asked the questions" that Eldar were prone to ask about life and meaning.

    The Orks are a healthier culture, by these measures, because they are vastly more numerous and in no danger of extinction, arguably their evil is merely pure, undirected violence without especial malice, perversion, or that knife-edge of panic being involved, and they are too dumb to be corrupted by Chaos beyond that particular, limited level.

    Or look at it in more generic fantasy-culture terms. The Orks are happy, drunk barbarians barely above animal level. The Dark Eldar are corrupt 'wizards' eaten away in the mind and spirit by numberless millennia of delving too greedily and too deep into the most intellectually and sensually corrupt domains of existence. A culture of Dorian Greys, if Dorian had near-godlike powers, functional immortality, and most of a galaxy for prey.

    I suppose it depends on your mileage- one Dark Eldar could probably take out battalions of Orks easily. But his culture is wildly closer to extinction than theirs.

    So your theory holds out so far. Here’s where it falls apart: That group was also a mixture.

    I think you're describing Indo-Europeans. They came to Europe from the Pontic steppes a long time ago, roughly 5k years before present. I think modern northern Europenas are to a large extend their descendents.

    The thing that's necessary for my view of things to be valid is for them to have undergone a few thousand years of selection as northern farmers. And yes, they did that. The fact that they themselves were a mixture of guys from the Caucasus and ancient Siberian hunter-gatherers is immaterial to me.

    The vikings were more brutal than ISIS and had non-institutionalized slavery. They enslaved white slavic woman, rape them in the vaginal, oral, anal areas and after cleaning them up sell them to rich fat wogs in Meditteranean area.

    There were no Vikings 2000 years ago and the ancestors of the Europeans may have sinned in the past, although I doubt that they did so against their own moral values and contrarily to the spirit of their day. The Turks did the same much more recently and they live on land occupied through terror.
    I don't agree with your view that institutionalised slavery is any better than non-institutionalised, provided that you know the meanings of these terms.

    So Iran enforcing its territorial limits (a few miles from an Iranian naval base) is "humiliation"? Apparently it's only the United States that's allowed to humiliate everybody else.

  • @Auntie Analogue
    ISIS, SchmISIS.

    The real threat - the only lethal threat - to the West is Islam's jihad by hijra - mass-migration of high birthrate Mohammedans into the West. All supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar and other OIC countries by refusing Syrian and other Moslem "refugees" entry into their own lands.

    ISIS is just the latest bunch of Islamic purists to chew up their own Islamic pestholes, yet ISIS is quite pleased to be simultaneously a force that propels Islamic jihad by hijra into the West - in part because the jihad by hijra also allows ISIS and other jihad-by-violence Islamic groups to shift their jihad by violence plants into the West.

    Islam's method is carrot-and-stick: the carrot consists of Islamic jihad by hijra, dawa and deceit (chiefly by guilt-tripping gullible Westerners into supporting continued and increased jihad by hijra into the West) carried out by the Moslems who come into Western nations and insinuate themselves into the West's institutions, Enemedia-Pravda and society; the stick is the small number of Mohammedans who carry out jihad by violence in the West.

    The only effective Western strategy is a strong, resolute combination of ending jihad by hijra into the West and of containing Islam within its own bloody borders. All other Western methods are not a strategies, they're merely guarantors of slow yet certain Islamization of the West.

    Like all armies, including the U.S. Army, Islam doesn't send its Best & Brightest into the self-selected ranks of its expendable infantry for small unit action.

    Islam gulls or incites its least brainy, least capable to commit the small unit action jihad attacks. For its showpiece big impact jihad attacks Islam sends its Best & Brightest - as with Mohammed Atta in the 9-11 attacks. All the rest of the small unit action jihadis are nothing but expendable infantry doing their koranic job to "strike terror" into the kuffar/kufr/kaffir.

    Be not misled by Islam's least competent - yet no less lethal - ordinary self-selected small unit action jihadis, because they, like all the rest of Islam's multiple jihad prongs, serve Islam's purpose. Even the dumbest jihadis serve Islam's stick-prong of Islam's carrot-&-stick multi-pronged jihad. You saw the effect of these small unit jihadi attacks this earlier this week, as that one San Bernardino jihad slaughter prompted the L.A. United School District to waste millions of dollars to shut down classes for a single day - and this, too, serves Islam's jihad purpose and ultimate goal.


    Moreover, by compelling its non-organized (i.e. , not connected to major Islamic jihad divisions such as Al Qaida or ISIS) expendable self-selected small unit infantry to commit jihad attacks, Islam takes advantage of its self-selected small units' ability to get through Western security. Even when the small jihad units are caught in pre-attack or jihad-support by Western security, they too serve the purpose of spreading Western security thin and driving up the cost to the kuffar of kuffar security; and Moslem inmates the purpose of pursuing dawa (proselytizing) in prisons while forcing the kuffar to pay for the imprisoned Moslems' shelter, clothing and food (and Moslem inmates demand and get halal chow, at extra expense to us kuffar). Plus, from each successful and unsuccessful small jihadi operation, jihadis of every sort learn more about how to outfox Western security and defenses.

    None of this, nothing about Islam - or even about this Marquez useful sap, is in the least funny. At least none of it is funny to me.

    “…expendable infantry doing their koranic job to “strike terror” into the kuffar/kufr/kaffir.”

    Nice rant but just a small correction here, from a non-believing muslim: “Kuffar” means “ungrateful ones” or unbelievers, “Kufr” is the act of non-belief or idolatry in general and specificially worship of statues. Kaffir is just the singular of “kuffar.”

I ask all the people that read Steve Sailer (which I assume means that you are a bit aware of the anti white global narrative) and are anti Russian cold war warriors - what motivates you to think this way ? How on earth is Turkey dominating Europe a good thing ? How on earth is another white country coming under the Davos crowd a good thing ?

  • I made this map based on Razib Khan's calculated figures of the percentage of Muslims around the world who support the death penalty for apostasy, which he compiled using data from the 2013 PEW global survey of Muslim attitudes.

  • @reiner Tor
    The problem is what Razib Khan described: religious doctrine tends to get more uniform across the religion, and unfortunately it usually means the center imposing its ideas on the periphery.

    Now, probably things would be a bit different if Saudi Arabia would be a poor hellhole living off of aid from other Muslim countries. Unfortunately, because of oil, it is not so. This means the periphery (or at least, many people on the periphery) tend to emulate the Saudis. As long as Saudi Arabia exists, the problem remains. So I'd think destroying Saudi Arabia might just work. But I'm not sure enough in this to actually advocate a war against Saudi Arabia (because I think to start a war you need to be very very sure it'll turn out well), especially not with the current Western rules of engagement. (Exterminating a large fraction of Saudis might actually work, though. Probably millions of Germans lying dead on the battlefields and even in German cities was what took out Nazism and even nationalism from Germans, and even changed Japanese behavior a bit, so it might work with the Saudis either.)

    I actually think Europeans would make even more terrible Wahhabis than Arabs, because Europeans can be quite zealous in any ideology (Nazism and multiculturalism being two recent examples) and are more efficient in any endeavor (including warfare, terrorism, or building rockets) than Arabs. If indigenous Europeans were to convert to Islam en masse, that would be a disaster for the rest of the world (even for Arabs, who freshly converted Europeans would probably find to be not sufficiently Muslim).

    This is some top shelf trolling.

    I find quite frightening Razib's other observation regarding how religions are becoming more monolithic (with the periphery of the religion starting to copy the center) in terms of doctrine and how this affects Islam (where everybody is unfortunately moving closer to Saudi Arabia instead of say Albania).

    As far as I know, the Chechens only converted to Islam a few centuries ago (maybe in the 18th century or so), and probably they weren't too fundamentalist about it until quite recently. Probably until the 1990s or so. This is a frightening trend, to say the least.

    Oh brother….you have no idea.

    Do you know the Chechens used to be Christians before the 17th century? Do you know Erdogan parents and origins are from Rize: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rize. A northeastern Turkish city, well known to be a former Georgian-Laz speaking province. Most of it’s inhabitants were georgians 200 years. They still are, we just call them Turks and Muslim now.

    That city is now a hotbed of Islamic Turkish movement.

    Both Chechens and Rize are really trying to make up for all that time that they were infidels.Which is why some of this HBD bullshit strikes me as hit-and-miss a lot of the time.

    Why aren’t the worst islamic fundamentalists in Turkey from, say, Istanbul? A city literally brutally conquered by Seljuq warriors a thousand years ago, and has been Muslim ever since. And yet AKP barely reaches 30% popularity in votes there.

    The Prophet Muhammad (AD 570-632), the founder of the Islamic religion, was apparently fair-skinned; a freedman, by the name of Umar, described the Prophet thus:

    "his face was not fat nor rounded; it was white tinged with red". [Guillaume (1987) 726.]

    Most authorities on the issue appear to agree that Muhammad was brunet, but Henric von Schwerin has stated that:

    "Red-hair is still honoured amongst Moslems as the Prophet Mohammed himself was reported to have red hair." [von Schwerin (1960) 27.]
     

    Muhammed had a six-year old wife who he fucked when she was nine.

    Ergo, Nordics are all pedophiles, as can be deduced by by looking for news about such activities among the British cabinet.

    Arabs and jews are both descended from a single tribe of semitic herders, who inhabited the levant more than 5,000 years ago. Based on the preponderance of Y haplogroup J1 among both jews and arabs (Muhammad himself belonged to Y-DNA J-P58 as do Cohanem, not a coincidence, as Muhammad belonged to an elite arabian pagan clan that traced it’s lineage to Abraham himself, that guy who tried to kill his son because god told him to do so, and god knows best).

    It’s just that the topics he writes about have a different focus. He could of course go into trudging ellipses about how the ethnic group du jour is a unable to securely take control of some hilltop because they practice inbreeding closer than third cousins, and then go at length with graphs and charts, and constantly correct every humorous observation with autistic repetition of his data.

    The problem is that his real life persona is very liberal. Not SJW levels, to the point where he disregards individual shortcomings, but enough bleeding heart Berkeley generation style that HBD would be a bitter pill to swallow. He hated Reagan with a burning passion and wrote a very powerful obituary for him and his "Cheshire snarl".

    The implications for Muslims in Europe is also horrible. To get all the women in harems they will have to kill all the European men. I suspect most European women find the idea of being in a harem attractive, after all five minutes of Alpha beats five years of beta (or fifty). But a society run on Alpha males is horrific. Filled with murder and torture, and sadism. As that is the quickest way to be Alpha. Only a few can be great dancers or singers, but torture, murder, and sadism is as easy as falling out of bed.

    And there is a REASON why so many Whites are beta males. Its evolutionary adaptive. Beta males are the only males capable of fighting horrific battles of mass annihilation, like Salamis, Lepanto, and Platea. And, critically, only beta males can produce massive amounts of pre-industrial let alone industrial wealth. By 1200, Bruges was one of the richest cities in the world from the wool trade. Based on the labor of beta males.

    Alpha males don't work -- they are not capable of work.

    A violent series of Alpha male raids by Muslims and inevitable beta male organization into mass annihilation is inevitable in Europe.

    Contra Derb, Whites are not "wimps." Rather, they are ATOMIZED. No other group of people is so atomic, decomposed into pure individuals with no animating beliefs like Islam and sub group organizations like clan, family, Jihadi groups, local voluntary organizations, and the like. Not even the pale substitute of Soccer and Football teams provides real subsidiary social organization. Whites are adrift in a sea of mass -- mass media, mass social media, mass corporations and governments. That probably won't hold, and the mass organizations run by elites know it, and are panicking.

    Sooner or later a Napoleon will organize beta male Whites into the sort of force seen last at Mexico City, under Cortez.

    Unfortunately, to a much lesser extent than their less civilized adversaries. A substantial fraction have taken the Western anti-Assad "muh democracy muh human rights" propaganda at face value, never realizing that what the Sunni Arabs both within and without actually have in mind is race war hopefully ending with their total extermination and/or permanent displacement from Syria.

    Even conservative Arab villagers with no sympathy toward Kurdish nationalism and suspicious of the aggressive secularism and gender-egalitarianism of the YPG units and seem to be welcoming them as liberators.
     
    I know Kurds are feted as this supposedly ultra-progressive democratic force in the Middle East, but I wonder how to square this or even really how it coexists with the fact that the Kurds are the only major group in the Middle East apart from Egypt and Yemen to practice FGM and the high prevalence of honor killings amongst them (almost all "Turkish" honor killings in Germany for instance are in fact Kurdish).

    “what the Sunni Arabs both within and without actually have in mind is race war hopefully ending with their total extermination and/or permanent displacement from Syria.”

    You’re speaking for a lot of sunni arabs there. Everybody always seems to forget that 70% of the SAA are sunni arabs.

    Kurds now are one of the main progressive forces in Turkish politics. The HDP party, which got 10% of the vote in the November 1 and June 7 elections has a lot of female candidates, all without headscarves.

I certainly wouldn't. And you're not just at risk from Islamists...only a few weeks ago, Egyptian security forces shot some unlucky Mexican tourists because they mistook them for jihadis...

Do you think they give a fuck about the refugee crisis? Of course not. Anything to accomplish geopolitical goals. It’s not even a fucking conspiracy.

    I actually think that this would be a pretty good idea for a deterrence strategy against the Muslim world if Europeans weren't such stupid losers nowadays...if Muslims do anything existentially threatening towards Europe, Mecca will be pulverised. Of course it would have to be left unclear what exactly would be seen as an existential threat, and of course such a strategy could only be implemented after the necessary political preconditions in Europe have been created (so unfortunately this is very unlikely).

    2,000 years ago, a powerful European nation pulverized the holy house of a savage, wretched tribe of middle eastern herders. They left the people alive though, and allowed them to wander around, and some of the survivors even settled in Rome.

    2,000 years later, the descendants of those people have the highest IQ in the world, control major industries, and are responsible for a high percentage of human accomplishment much beyond their numbers.

    postponing is good. The problem with Islam in the last 30 years has been that there have been nothing but muslim victories, thus it is the "strong horse". Every country where Islam at least once does not immediately win is good for the future. Someday the muslim expansion - demographical, violent, ideological, territorial - has to stop, and somewhere this end of muslim expansion has to begin.
