On the eve of another attack

There has been another Islamic attack on the West. London, the most likely place for such a thing to happen, where whites are now a minority, and where the mayor himself, Sadiq Khan, claimed that terrorism is simply ‘part and parcel’ of living in a big city, was host to an attack on British Parliament by a British Muslim preacher.

What is it with white westerners, that attack after blatantly revolutionary attack, we lack impulse- we do not organize to demonstrate, we do not protest lying media bent on subverting attention. Some individuals use the occasion, one of many similar occasions, to prove their pro-western cause righteous with memes and critique of the media’s dishonest coverage or lack of any.

Are we too busy working, stressing about the upkeep of our homes and responsibilities, paying taxes that fund our own downfall by incentivizing the invasion of third-world ‘immigrants’ and ‘refugees’? Are we too comfortable and would rather choose denial or to hand off responsibility to someone else? Are we too busy philosophizing and gritting our teeth, nit-picking over specific issues while sheeplike westerners march chanting ‘diversity is our strength’ as the media projects it through the airwaves?

Yes, we are.

We’re too busy with unimportant things. Our blood matters. Our soil matters. Those two elements are the root of everything that defines our past, present, and future. Islam is a foreign religion and ideology that seeks to dominate the West, and the less likely it is for the West to ‘chop some heads’ so to speak, the more emboldened Islamic missionaries will become.

The youth must reject social decadence, realize that equality is a myth, and diversity of ethnicity and religion is not a strength but a creator of tension and violence. We have to embrace ourselves, have large families, and relearn our native European worldview. Becoming ourselves is an act that will result in true change for the betterment of the West.
And we all know something must change.

A Response to Paul Watson’s ‘Conservatism is the New Counter-Culture’ video.

I’ve been screaming ‘Traditionalism is the counter-culture’ since September. Sometime during the fall, I found out that ‘conservative performance artist’ Martina Markota posted a video in November called “Conservatism is the new counter-culture” and after a brief moment of self-flattery, thinking she had ripped me off (she had followed me on Instagram, so it wasn’t a totally far-fetched notion), I found her article of the same title from that summer. Last month, Paul Watson of Infowars released a video using Markota’s headline. Apparently she had been trying to get an interview for some time. So he ripped her off.

It doesn’t matter who said it first. It’s an observation, not an invention. By Watson’s own word, many of his followers are under twenty, so his videos could very well be playing a role influencing Generation Z. I’ve enjoyed his content before. He provides researched, to-the-point, meme-ified videos, and steers clear of any topic too controversial. It makes sense that he has a wider fan base than Jared Taylor.

He’s also a businessman, a one-man alternative media outlet who cares more about making the right business move than pushing the envelope. Good for him. I couldn’t do it- I’d feel phony. To become a successful on the Infowars level, or even as a YouTube personality, you really have to stick to your shtick.

Commentators like Watson, Gavin McInnes, and Milo Yiannopolous are reaching those who’ve had enough of leftist puritanism and speech policing. They capitalized on 2015- the year of the SJW- and Trump’s campaign. Unfortunately for Markota, these guys own a lot of that Trumpian territory as of now. Above all, they’re businessmen.

Yiannopolous has been taking stabs at Alt-Right founder Richard Spencer, threatened by the stir a Spencer university tour would cause, being that campuses are Milo territory. I guess one-liner titles and dry humor are Watson’s, so there you go, Martina: you handed him that one, and he ran away with it, because Trump-supporter or not, these guys have their sales, clicks, and subscribers to tend to.

The essence of the rising counter-culture will not be that of Infowars, Breitbart, or Rebel Media for this reason. Pro-Trump rhetoric and cultural libertarianism is the tip of the iceberg, the preface, to the breaking down of taboos which will ideally lead to a reinstatement of the traditional family and a lowering of living standards. No undercurrent of culture is going to be the same force capitalizing on the shifting winds. Watson is a bit too caught up in click-baiting and churning out material.

Outrage exists because the ideas leftists claim to fight against exist. They catch the scent of White nationalism and attack the most prominent figureheads that are right of them- guys who get really flustered and defensive at the assumption that they’re correlated with White nationalism. Steering clear of accusations of racism is important for them. Milo verbally beheads any interviewer who tries to associate him with White nationalism.

Leftists are fighting the wrong people and making themselves look like idiots in the process. In effect, they’ll either force constitutionalists and classical liberals to the right, or force them to place themselves in the middle of two extremes where they’ll be eaten up culturally by a more politically inclined youth growing up. Kids will wind up entertaining ethno-nationalism when they rebel against the culture they’ve been raised in. They’ll re-observe history. They’ll become survivalist and tribalists. The far left will have created the very enemy they’re flailing after and the middle-of-the-roaders will deny responsibility for having opened the floodgates. 

New voices on the right aren’t going to spend so much time debunking allegations of racism after the media and antifa has viciously attacked every non-self-hating white person from Donald Trump to PewDiePie for being just that. To me, such accusations have been totally nullified. 

I personally think the world would be stronger and more peaceful with mostly homogeneous societies. Tribalistic culture is most in-line with human nature, so first we have to rebuild the foundation of the traditional family and lower our living standards dramatically. I don’t like multiculturalism, it’s the root of tension and violence, and although egalitarianism might be dreamed up with good motives, its ransacked and exploited for the benefit of few.
One a breakthrough is made, it effects the general awareness. Paul Watson can fancy himself as Generation Z’s Sid Vicious, but by the time they’ve grown up, he won’t be fooling anyone anymore- only those who keep pushing the envelope toward a closure embrace of human nature and righteousness- those who make necessary sacrifices- will be revered.

 

 

McCain Names Wrong Enemy During Mattis Hearing

Mattis testifies before the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Capitol Hill

This morning I tuned into the confirmation hearing for General James Mattis, Trump’s choice for Secretary of Defense in his upcoming administration. “Mad dog” Mattis was a hugely popular choice among Trump supporters for his strong reputation gained over forty years of service in the U.S. Military.

As Chairman of the Senate Armed Forces Committee, John McCain primarily addressed Mattis during the hearing. It was an awkward interview to watch. McCain continuously made allegations against Russia and President Vladimir Putin specifically, accusing him of “wanting” and “needing” the U.S. as his enemy, which by the looks of the U.S. mainstream media clinging to a Russian strawman for the last three months, seems like a projection. McCain goes on to deem Putin’s presidency a “trail of death, destruction, and broken promises,” heavily criticizing his involvement in Ukraine, even summarizing an anecdote in a feeble attempt to seem heartfelt towards fallen Ukrainian soldiers.

McCain’s most backwards accusation deemed Putin dismissive of the threat of ISIS, and that even if he was aware of the threat (which he is) and is ready to take action upon violence or threat thereof upon Russia (which he most certainly is), “he will never be our partner.” So, in other words, if ISIS, which is the actual ‘threat to western values’ that McCain claims Putin is, was the common target of the U.S. and Russia, Putin still would have no chance of being a U.S. ally? While ISIS continues to seize power and gain respect, influencing young Muslims to incite violence in western countries, us Americans would do better to passively recognize the “breakdown of regional order” in the Middle East (hm, I wonder who’s responsible for that…) instead of naming ISIS. We should combat Russia, a stable, first-world, Christian, European nation under a president who has protected them for over fifteen years, causing us Americans no harm. Right?

If McCain thinks smearing Russia with irrelevant and outright disprovable talking points, while leaving the faults of the U.S. government unmentioned will in any way pressure Mattis’s actions as Secretary of Defense, or sway the Senate, he’s an idiot. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume his pockets have been filled by George Soros, the regressive left’s sugar daddy and longtime puppet-master. I got the sense McCain couldn’t care less about the well being of his native country or the persuasiveness of his accusations based on his energy level while dishing them out. With the power of social media, especially in the context of this election, no politician in their right mind would assume that the population takes them on their word or level of media support.

It seems as if Nationalism, or any recognition of identity or responsibility, is the sworn enemy of some of the most popular western politicians. The post-WWII “world order” was McCain’s other reference point, asserting the importance of sustaining it. Whatever the “world order” is to McCain and the rest of the senate in context to America’s near future may be, the end-goals of globalist figures like Soros are the enemy of culture, identity, and general consciousness of populations. Therefore, democrats and republicans morph into one in the eyes of the public; that’s why Americans elected Trump, a political outsider, and it’s also the cause of the wave of Nationalism sweeping across the west as I type this. No matter how much the “world order” is inflicted on major cities and by the mainstream media, the roots of western civilization, which are deep in its people, are too strong to topple the tree.

The one statement McCain made that I can agree with is that “business as usual is dangerous.” Last year, under Obama, America dropped over 26,000 bombs, with no mercy for civilians, in the Middle East and Africa. According to The Guardian, “US special operators could be found in 70% of the world’s nations” which is “a jump of 130% since the days of the Bush administration.” 20,000 undocumented Syrians, over 40,000 Somalis, 99% of whom are Muslim, settled in the U.S. under Obama, not to mention the millions in Northern and Western Europe. If “anything that challenges the world order” is a threat to McCain’s vision, then the toppling of the current so-called “world order” seems overdue to the civilians of these western nations, none of whom voted for the influx of third-world immigrants who fail to assimilate to the culture and values of their host countries. You’re right, McCain, business as usual is dangerous. And business is about to change.

Centuries-old Swedish Tradition Suffering in Multicultural Sweden

Attempts to dilute and suppress the European spirit are continuous. This year, according to major news sources in Sweden, many Swedish cities will cease to have processions on St. Lucia’s Day, a centuries-old Christian tradition derived from the Pagan winter solstice festival in which a single girl is chosen to wear a crown of candles to represent Lucia. The reasoning behind the cancellations isn’t new or surprising, just another example of alienating Europeans from their own heritage and people, in this instance, to pander to non-white migrant children who ‘may feel less welcome to participate’ in Lucia which is a ‘very Swedish tradition’ typically associated with ‘blonde women’ (Engman).

Liberal trends will fade from the minds of young Swedes just as quickly as they entered them. Traditions dating back to pre-history, and surrounded with the joys of Yuletide (Christmas), will not fall victim to globalists, who feel there should be no nations or separate cultures, just a faceless, colorless mass, where supposedly we all get along just fine under one group of globalist leaders. If multiculturalism is a force for good, which it claims to be, then why are the native cultures where ‘multiculturalism’ is implemented suffering, even disappearing?

European roots are deep and strong, and European people run high with spirit and pride. My prediction and deepest hope is that upcoming generations of Swedes will embrace the rich cultures of their beautiful homeland.

Emily Youcis, artist/animator

Emily Youcis is a Philadelphia-based renaissance woman of the web, a dictator of videos and mini-movies which she illustrates, animates, directs, and writes herself.

Here’s the first one I saw. Posted to Newgrounds in 2007. Alfred Alfer, dog, is the cartoon embodiment of the person inside everyone “who’s been scared, who’s been maimed, beaten, and tortured by various things in the modern day. It’s us. We’re all struggling. We’re all weak little bastards.” Glorious soundtrack by Ludwig Van:

“We have strong desires to fondle dear Alfred…” I am taken by this video at first by the dramatized, Ren & Stimpy-esque animation and overall plot, because it makes me chuckle heartily. But also, the instinct that draws me to, for example, Ariel Pink’s early records comes into play: youthful brilliance masterminding a cheap board. Of course you don’t need money to make art. I’m not saying being poor makes the art good, but it gives the young artist incentive to gain a reputation so that they can acquire the necessary means of production and time to come the closest to realizing their artistic GOALS. There’s a period when the young artist has to prove him or herself. Then perhaps they’re discovered, as Youcis was by Lloyd Kaufman, co-founder of Troma Entertainment and director of The Toxic Avenger.

Fast forwarding through the years, all of which I’ve seen snippets of in the last couple of hours, because the Internet is a wild neon forest of infinite information (See my Wild West post), Youcis has since not only delved into painting and music, but politics as well, and not of the prescribed ideology of the ‘entertainment business.’ No, just the opposite: Since coming out as a supporter of Donald Trump, she says of friends she once had: “they’re all gone now.” Being a former ‘crusty’ (crust punk), and an independent web-poet in the ever-so ‘progressive’ greater-Philadelphia region, this comes as no surprise.

Emily Pukis & The Vagrants

It’s true that this election has polarized voters. For what reason young people with any inkling of a rebellious spirit wouldn’t be anti-establishment in this context is befuddling. I see in the work of Emily Youcis the kind of radical, political, Thompsonesque psychedelia that’s been missing from American art. Sure, lots of work is apolitical. But the fact that artists risk their career and reputation in endorsing or arguing in favor of Trump, or merely promoting traditional values, is absurd. Doesn’t it make sense, anyway, that artists, whose societal duty is to challenge the people by challenging the system influencing them, would be on Trump’s side, if any? Who will rip the multicultural utopian veil off the face of globalists, and expose it for the anti-Europe, anti-US agenda that it is, if not artists? Who will satirize sham narratives, paint dystopias, make us laugh, and then think, if not writers, painters, filmmakers, dancers, and musicians? Where would the Trump campaign itself be without memesters and orators?

Isn’t it our duty as American people to upkeep a social landscape where one needn’t fear an authoritarian party which threatens to ostracize them for having a different opinion?

Here is the latest video featuring Alfred Alfer. It is also, from what I understand, the first installment of a full-length Alfred Alfer feature. You can find Emily on YouTube, Newgrounds, Twitter, etc. Glorious soundtrack by Johann Sebastian:

The Internet is the Wild West

…But how long will the qualities we love, and take for granted, last?

On September 30th, 2016, the Obama administration effectively gave away the Internet; yes, apparently the president does have the authority to hand-off “America’s pioneering role in ensuring that the Internet remains a place where free expression can flourish” to a privatized global-clique where there is no voice to speak out for such a right.

If we look at the ‘Wild West,’ that romanticized time in American history lasted approximately thirty years in the mid-to-late 1800’s. If we say the Internet as we know it began to come of age at the turn of the century, then consider recent advancements, perhaps it’s a possibility that the free-of-charge, high-power, pro-freedom Internet will become a mere nostalgic reminiscence a century from now.

I’d like to see the web remain fun and interesting, but it seems waters are already flowing against us: for starters, major news networks in America have begun closing comment sections on (especially political) articles, claiming that they’ve become infested with hate speech and harassment. People aren’t disagreeing with articles and proving them wrong because they want to be ‘trolls,’ “it’s because people hate [the media] and [the media] lies…on a daily basis to the public.” Instead of questioning the quality of their journalism, the networks shut down the potential for any kind of discussion on the matter. Well, it’s their website, so it’s their right. These ‘trolls’ can ride their steeds into the plains of web-righteousness and spread their knowledge and opinions. Right?

Right, until they gain steam promoting an idea that conflicts with the establishment’s seeming desire for some egalitarian society, which is really a guise for more power to few, less freedom to more, and no rooted identity for any. There’s a totalitarian quality to the progressive left; equality slogans are ran about, preach of tolerance and diversity…but spread too ‘threatening’ of an opinion and you’ll be shut down, on the Internet, at least…

44f96-coyoted1-1

It would be a healthy precaution to at least be aware that the Internet as we know it has a new possessor. So, enjoy and utilize the Internet as long as it’s services and tools have use in the hands of the people. As always, physical mediums are useful, and much harder for an outsider to regulate. Knowing where to access information otherwise is important, and not difficult, only slower. Documents exclusive to the Internet are always worth a print-out. Sane, trustworthy (preferably also brave and intelligent) people to debate and discuss with are helpful, but not as important as faith in your own intellect and instinct. No one can keep us down for long, if we can stay in touch with ourselves…

About graphic design and advertisers; The Vienna Secession: Then & Now.

Note: Quotes used are taken from recent interviews with writer Alan Moore and from The Duchamp Dictionary by Thomas Girst.

Naturally a university for the arts will train its students for fields and professions with the highest guarantee of work. In the early twentieth century, before the effects of Industrialization, art schools were still traditionalist, training its students to work for commissions in the classical fine art realm. Modern graphic design, and modern art more generally, sprouts from secession from this tradition. Alfred Roller (1864-1935) was a key figure in this secession from academic style, focusing more on typography, radical forms, and flat colours. Some of Roller’s pieces were used as magazine covers representing the movement.

A few decades later, Surrealism and Dadaism were prominent movements. The contributions of Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and Josef Albers (1888-1976), for example, brought us closer to how we conceive product design and advertisements. “It is not surprising to see Duchamp’s influence in [graphic design]. He paid meticulous attention to designing his own editions of boxes, posters and books as well as catalogues, announcements, invitations, flyers and publications for his friends or for the Surrealist and Dada movements…His magazines prefigured the underground press punk and fanzine cultures that emerged in the US” (Girst).

Go into a city, drive on a major road, look at your cell phone, surf the Internet, turn on your TV. Really anywhere you look in an urban or suburban environment, someone is trying to sell you something, and more times than not a graphic designer is the one responsible for grabbing your attention and storing recognizable information in your brain. Repetition is essential, like when reading a story to a toddler, or training a dog. Then, if you buy the product, it’s also a graphic designer who ensures, for example, an aesthetically pleasing packaging for your KFC meal or your iPod.

These are powerful forces, and shouldn’t always be “degenerated to the level of cheap entertainment and manipulation.” Instead of using them as “opiates to tranquilize people,” we should use them to wake people up, or shed light on real issues. Think about it: through television, designers have the ability to plant the same thoughts in a whole population at the same time. Instead of planting useless information, or plain banality in the heads of the public, “reassuring and reconfirming  [their] prejudices,” why not surprise and challenge them? “A lot of popular culture is saying ‘everything’s okay with the way you think about things, with the way you see the world. Isn’t it nice…look, a butterfly’” (Moore).

It’s necessary for arts to be less about commerce and more about real issues. We’re reaching a threshold of complexity that is much greater than any we’ve faced before. Its liable that in the next eighteen months we’ll have invented as many things as we’ve previously invented in the whole of human history. People feel more fragmented in terms of their personalities and lives. The complexity keeps mounting; we need art more than ever. We need voices that can actually make some sense out of this chaotic storm of information that we find ourselves surrounded by. It’s not just preferable that we have some decent committed art around at the moment… it’s absolutely vital” (Moore).

Beginning with the Vienna Secession and its roots, with figures like Alfred Roller, the academic style has fully shifted from traditionalism to modernism and today it totally panders to commerce. It’s time again to secede, toward using art as the undercurrent of change, as a means to cure loneliness and challenge people; to give them not what they want, but what they need, to tell them things they know but don’t know that they know.
