1. Crude commentary on the London Olympics opening ceremony, but it hits the bull’s eye. The games ought to be called Oy-lympics. You know who it is gloating over and showcasing what they’ve done to England.
2. Not even a month has passed and the prothink network is again being given the boot; Delaney explains it, ZCF comments and JP chimes in. Previously godaddy was made to have them leave. Under Bob Parsons, godaddy respected freedom of speech, but it was bought by venture capitalist firms KKR & Co. L.P. (Kohlberg Kravis Roberts) and Silver Lake Partners, undoubtedly motivated in part to do something about the free speech problem. The prothink network switched to 1&1 hosting, a branch of a publicly-traded corporation, which by its nature is controlled by financial corporations, and the second booting happened following this bad choice.
If they’re into game, prothink folks should switch to companies that host one of several prominent websites that are clear or suspected phony opposition, spreading out their websites over these companies instead of bringing them all under the same company. This is a win-win situation, gaming better than the oylimpics on Talmud-Vision. If they get booted while the fake opposition remains, the suspicions are confirmed. If they’re allowed to remain to protect the fake opposition, they get to keep swelling the ranks of the awakened while the owners or overseers of the web-hosting companies grumble in private.

I wouldn’t be normally posting here at this time, but something needing the immediate attention of sincere patriots, activists, nationalists, etc. has come up, and it’s an excellent documentation of who the enemy really is.
The prothink network comprises of a group of websites dedicated to documenting the activities of, opposing and fighting our common enemy, a 4-letter word beginning with J. The people behind the prothink network are mostly young and passionate individuals, not necessarily correct on all counts, but sincere and activist, which is what matters as their heart’s in the right place and they’re doing something constructive.
The J-enemy has targeted goddady, their registrar and web host, which caved in and has given them 2 days to find another domain registrar and host [#1, #2]. Now, these individuals are advised to separate their domain registrars from web hosts, and it’s plural so that they spread out their domains and websites across different service providers.
The prothink network comprises of websites such as prothink.org, zioncrimefactory.com, prothink.tv, jewishproblem.com, 911missinglinks.com, etc. That their work is noteworthy can be ascertained from 911missinglinks.com receiving accolades from ADL’s honcho, Abe, and zioncrimefactory having had blog after blog deleted by google and wordpress. Michael Delaney, the mastermind behind 911missinglinks.com, has tirelessly campaigned, on the streets and online, to educate Americans about who really orchestrated 9/11.
Extend these fine individuals your support, which can be in the form of donations, moral support, mirroring their content, giving their case studies publicity on your blogs, offering them hosting space in the event you own a server, etc. Be advised that I have no affiliation with the prothink network.
In the event that the prothink network is down, which it most probably will be for some time, you may contact some of the key individuals [remove brackets]:
[prothink] [@] [yahoo.com]
[zioncrimefactory] [@] [hotmail.com]
The address to which paypal donations should be sent:
[mikedelaney6575] [@] [gmail.com]
Had the prothink network targeted Arabs, Nazis, Blacks, Muslims, Latinos, liberals, conservatives, feminists, or other assorted groups aside from the J-enemy, rest assured they’d not only be left unmolested, but encouraged. If the prothink network used superficial criticism of the J-enemy as cover for J-excusing and disinformation, like the typical website in the nationalist genre, they’d be left alone. But they’re the real deal. Accordingly, it isn’t difficult to determine who the enemy really is. Act against this enemy by supporting those fighting them.
It’s been said that the halls of academia echo with the chorus of freedom of speech, but the most vociferous members of this chorus often do everything within their power to suppress it! I know of no better example than this of the uselessness of explicitly endorsing support for free speech; behavior, not what one superficially endorses, matters.
Assuming one’s inclined toward respecting freedom of speech, how does one accommodate those hostile to free speech? Suppressing the hostiles is a form of suppression of free speech, but one must suppress the hostiles in order to freely discuss the things the hostiles want suppressed. An open discussion can’t be productive if the hostiles barge in with obfuscation, lies, distortions, noise, nonsense, straw men, trolling, guilt-by-association arguments, discrediting the opponent by making assumptions and then critiquing the assumptions, exposing false information by fellow-hostiles, false dichotomies, deflecting attention from the perpetrators, directing animosity toward the victims and other foul techniques.
Getting rid of the hostiles is an easy matter if the discussion is taking place among a non-proselytising group. The hostiles can complain all they want about suppression of free speech, but the group can keep them out without explanation and without apology.
But the solution to having a productive discussion with hostiles lurking about isn’t easy when the discussion group seeks to bring naive individuals and fence sitters into the fold. Let’s look at a specific issue, the discussion of who did 9/11.
[submission by Genotype]
Murray’s thesis is higher cognitive abilities lead to greater economic productivity and thus higher salaries. This is merely an update to Ayn Rand‘s update to Horatio Alger’s “rags to riches” legends.
Murray and his jewish employers at AEI have two transparent goals:
1.Describe what anyone with an IQ > 90 can see has happened and continues to happen economically.
2.Gain control of the discourse by eliminating all references to “The Other” from the universe of permitted explanations for #1.
The undergrad degree data don’t support Murray’s proposed explanation for the Great Divide. Undergrad science and engineering majors that might lead to advanced science degrees are grossly underrepresented in the 1% group. They are so underrepresented that this data alone falsifies Murray’s primary explanation.
“Biology” obviously serves as a proxy for “pre-med.” Humanities majors of the kind that comprise “pre-law” curriculums are heavily over-represented. History, “economics,” and political science are obvious pre-law programs. What to make of zoology and physiology, except failure to make the cut for “pre-med”? Note that mathematics and physics are on the bottom. Computer science and mechanical/electrical/civil engineering didn’t make the list.

Ran into Vdare begging for donations… bizarre excuses offered. The main one’s that the writers have families to feed and are being ostracized. Don’t use their names! A successful publication, The Economist, does this. The software Vdare uses allows for custom fields, sophisticated tagging and running boolean operators on tags, facilitating arbitrary categorization and custom display of taxonomy and fields. There’s no need for author names.
Peter Brimelow argues for VDare’s credentials by noting that the SPLC labels it a hate group, failing to add that the credentials are of uselessness at best, controlled opposition at worst! The SPLC pretends MR doesn’t exist. Why? Because many of our articles make them pee pee and poo poo… the Hell they’ll give publicity to the real deal!
Brimelow says they don’t endorse candidates, in the midst of a tacit endorsement of Ron Paul, long revealed as controlled opposition.
In a nutshell, the donations request has to be a scam. A good way of understanding this is to look at the recent fundraising marathon at counter-currents.com. Greg Johnson claimed a need for $25,000, for what? The web hosting should be less than $150/yr. Apparently he’s trying to make a living off of it. He got this much, which makes no sense given the Alexa ranking [traffic], age [set-up mid-2010] and quality of articles unless the bulk of it came from Juden, the only logical candidate as Johnson’s doing a great job of pleasing them. Vdare’s not to be outdone, and should have no logical reasons to beg for money, but the Juden derive perverse pleasure in milking moolah from the people they’re scamming [witness wikipedia begging for donations]. Beware of the scamsters.
At Occidental Dissent. The time before last it happened - again at Occidental Dissent - I offered Prozium (or was it Scimitar) a guest-slot at MR because he was producing some very good conservative-going-on-WN material. Someone I respect explained privately that this had all happened before (as Fade the Butcher), and to become involved in any way with this guy would be a mistake. But it didn’t matter because Scimitar (or was it Prozium) started Odessa Syndicate. When it happened again at Odessa Syndicate in 2008 I expressed the hope that Scimitar-Prozium would now understand his limitations, tragic as they are, and not attempt to operate in a lead role anywhere in the future. But he started Occidental Dissent again. Hunter Wallace’s newly muscled, Imm-friendly, Tea Party-friendly, lets-do-politics Occidental Dissent.
I wish Hunter well, but I also wish he would respect his situation and his readers, and not put himself and them through yet another cycle of destruction. He surely will, though. He says he’s fine.
Some comments on an essay by Susie Green at VDARE.com.
Do you know who Jack Donovan is?
He is a frequent contributor at “Alternative Right”, a sort of mainstream radical right site. He is also according to his on-site bio:
What’s this book “Androphilia”? I am not sure how to put this politely so I won’t bother to, it is a tome which suggests that masculine men should embrace homosexuality. Not that this snazzly named Androphilia is precisely the same thing of course. Here’s how a highly sympathetic interviewer characterized it:
Huge difference there - gays are of course all pederasts, and Jack Donovan apparently likes mature men. ‘Cos he’s manly, you know. And butch. And…stuff like that.
When this fails, and he can’t convince masculine un-pc men to turn gay, he has another suggestion for them: suicide.
MR was knocked off-line all day yesterday. All I can say in our defence is that the crash was not pilot error. The rippling effects of a new security regime put in place by our hoster were the cause. But here we are again, and I hope we’ve seen the back of the problem. My thanks to James for devoting so much time to it, and my apologies to all our readers for presenting them with twenty-four hours of fayre no more interesting than an error message.
One day last week I received a mail from GT which contained a criticism of his which we know well. “There is no merit,” he said, “in bringing the “life” approach to narcissistic, urban Internet “warriors” of paleoconservative/libertarian bent.” Now, I have a lot of respect for GT, combative as he is, so I’ve replied in a considered form and in the context of the week’s big news in the long war for the Globality and against European Man ...
There it stands, the Big Lie of the moment: global warming is caused by our carbon emissions. Sworn by the high priests of a new “science”, received by an owned political class, brought into the public consciousness as an article of faith insulated as far as possible from rational examination ... it is everything that interested parties need to deliver Europe’s benighted children from comfort and prosperity unto a life of need and, through need, subordination.
Interested parties? Well, I will leave you to google “Lord Monckton” for a spotlight on the UN. But here (pdf) is an essay titled ” Trading Emissions – Full Global Potential” and written by Simon Linnett, Executive Vice-Chairman of Rothschild, calling for a new legislative system to regulate emissions trading (aka “cap and trade”) and a global body, the World Environment Agency, to oversee it. It was published by the Social Market Foundation in January 2008.
Governments must establish this legislative system, it says:
Those three little words, which one would think people like Linnett, who move in Rothschild circles, would know better than to use in public, first appear in the Introduction to the essay:
And they appear for the third and final time at the end of the section “How to get there”:
It is five weeks since Hunter Wallace asked a question on our 5th birthday thread that deserves a proper response. It was this:
For one reason or another I let HW’s question slip down the list of things to do at MR. But I’m going to answer it now. It will take only a little time.
Let’s start with the admission that it takes someone very special - a lot more gifted than me - to plan and to be entirely consequent. Generally speaking, Man just proposes, you know. And that’s what I did back in the summer of 2004 when, with Phil Peterson as sounding board, I cooked up a blog that would not simply be another guy sounding off about this wicked old world but would model the broad right - radical, hard and traditional - and contain all its ideological tensions.
Phil and I did not - could not - know how it would be received, let alone whether any synthesis might emerge. Neither, since it was, anyway, designed for a larger purpose than anything one might achieve through blogging, could we know what direction it would take or how long it would hold together. It had to be free to run its course.
As most of us no doubt recall, it did not hold together. The principle reason was that Phil and I had decided to airbrush out the JQ to allow a better chance of success, but the “harder” right would not have that! To be precise my most respected friends wintermute and ben tillman almost immediately drove a big, fast coach and horses straight through it. We were left with the choice, which was no choice at all, of pretending to be Larry’s pals or challenging the “soft wing” to recognise that all those awful and impolitic things WNists say about the JQ have the benefit of being fundamentally true. Some could not deal with that.
DanielJ has made a very sensible observation about the tendency for outbreaks of strife on this and, as far as I can see, every other free board in our political micro-world. In consequence, we are changing mod rules initially for a trial period of one month to see if we can eliminate the more abusive commentary which sometimes deforms MR threads.
Criticism, constructive or otherwise, remains fine - and personal criticism too. But serious and inflammatory abuse is out.
This has always been the case here, of course. But now the MR team, which comprises four old hands as well as myself, will remove not only the abusive comment but every entry by the miscreant on that thread.
If the word sinks in and the standard of commentary improves as expected we will relax the policy in some form - I like good and interesting but free speech.
This is the first time comment policy has been modified in MR’s history. It does not represent a trend. We will never go to full moderation or no comments, as some folks have suggested in the past. Latitude and inclusiveness remain core values of this blog.
14th October marks five years since majorityrights.com hit the net. I guess that it has been the most interesting and stimulating five years of my life - if I overlook the bits that have pretty women and rolling cars in them. I’ve learned a truly immense amount about the greatest issues of our, or any other, European age. I’ve learned more here about the world around me than ever I thought I might, and at times find myself standing at the very cutting edge – Søren’s bleeding edge, in fact – of thought about our collective future. And all this I owe to my association here with an extraordinary group of independent and creative minds, not just those who wrote the main entries but the many extraordinary people who bring their perspectives to the comment threads. It’s been a privilege for which I am truly grateful.
I began thinking about this post months ago, and had intended it as a reprise of my favourite posts. But in the end I found it was the people, not the words, that I wanted to commemorate. Some, like James and JWH, are ridiculously talented. Many more of us have to work much harder at it. But everyone has contributed, and I think it’s important to feature a good selection of them – which I thought I would do as a timeline. I have deliberately weighted the selection in our earlier years so there is a good range of posts with which readers will now be pretty unfamiliar.
They are by no means all seminal moments. Some are as memorable for the threads as for the original entries. Some just bring back good memories, like when Alex Zeka led the charge at Perry de Hapless’s nest of viporous uber-libertarians and Svi introduced us to Mr Ziv, or when Johan provided the basis for a Sunday Times Magazine investigation of the Boer Genocide. All bring me pleasure, many pride.
Here they are:
November 14th: Johan Van Vlaams, Not just Flemish interest
February 4th: Geoff Beck, The Pace Boys
February 22nd: Matt Nuenke, Animal Rights, Humanism, and Universal Altruism
April 21st: JW Holliday (91 contributions from JWH, but I chose the least of them and the most haunting) Since history repeats …
April 23rd: Matt Nuenke, Immigration, nationalism, and our fellow travelers.
May 5th: J Richards (legendary comment-magnate – here is his second post) The self-esteem of some non-white populations
June 26th: Johan Van Vlaams The Boer Genocide
October 10th: Geoff Beck, Immigration and Taxation Voting Patterns by Race
March 7th: Alex Zeka, Samidioting
August 23rd: Svyatoslav Igorevich (with a JR addition) Oh for G-d’s sake: insane miscegenation propaganda
April 28th: Steve Edwards, Neo-nazis as government agents
November 28th: Matra The Quebecois are a nation
March 7th: James Bowery, MajorityRadio interview, Drew Fraser Part 2
March 29th: James Bowery, Genetic structure and Outbreeding Depression
January 15th: Søren Renner, J’AIME LE NUIF
July 2nd: Alex, Crimes that our grandchildren will see
March 1st: Robert Reis, The Fundamental Flaws of the Holocaust Cult
March 14th: The Narrator, Going Home Again
March 30th: PF, What is always with us?
August 4th: Dasein, Sowing the Seeds: Powder Keg on the Baltic
September 23rd: Dan Dare, The Immigration Industry tacks into the wind
To all those not featured on the list, I had to stop somewhere! And you’re in good company. The most influential of JWH’s pieces on genetic interests, the most comment-inducing of JR’s work on beauty are not here. James’ series on Ocean Frontier Fertility is not here. Svi’s encyclopaedic cataloguing of the Duke Lacrosse flap is not here. Søren’s classical Saturdays ...
But maybe the commentariat will rectify that.
For me, it’s time to look ahead to the next five years in which we must do more for our cause, for we have not yet done nearly enough.
Not that high traffic is the goal of MR, but I thought it worthwhile to extract some of the stats from Alexa, as unreliable a measure as that site is, that Wild Bill the subliminalist says evidenced my having driven readership away from MR. Here are some other Alexa stats you may find interesting:
We’ve been off-line with a server issue which our hosting company now seems to have put right. There have been short outages caused by similar technical issues in the past, but this one was unusual since it produced a completely blank page - a “no show” - and lasted for something like eleven hours. Anyhow, I can assure you that there was nothing suspicious about it, and I hope we can return to normal uninterrupted service.
My apologies for the break.
As an addendum to the episode of JR’s “Scroob” post, which is now gone from the page, I am publishing the last two emails between JR and myself on the subject, plus JR’s response to criticisms he received in the thread.
First, a reply to me from JR.
And here is my response to that.
From a real one-issue blog that I hadn’t heard of until today:-
And here’s the meat of the Telegraph story:-
GS is the supplier of bankers for senior federal government positions. But it also sits at the heart of the web of global financial power. As Mike Morgan says, “Yes, I am short Goldman Sachs stock. I believe this company is evil and should not exist. We need to begin to break up companies that have as much control over world finances as Goldman Sachs.”
I received a mail today from MR reader Bruce Graeme. Here it is.
Lawrence Auster defines “the unprincipled exception” as:-
However, recently, in his post On the difficult issue of how to talk about race, Auster himself applied the liberal “unprincipled exception” in full force to challenge some aspect of racism without challenging racism itself.
He claims that “in order to defend the white race and Western civilization, we don’t need to make it sound as though race in itself is the highest value.” ... “we simply need to recognize that whiteness is an indispensable facet of what white people and Western society are and have been.”
Then he continues saying that “through all of American history until the mid 20th century, the leaders of our society frankly believed in the white race, they took it for granted that America was a white man’s country and should remain so.”
Further applying this principle he concludes: “To make the case for the preservation of the white race and white civilization plausible, it must be justified within a moral framework. When race is treated as a value in itself, it inevitably declines into cruder forms of racialism that are wrong and that will be automatically rejected.”
The problem, however, is that due to this liberal “unprincipled exception” the very definition of ‘whiteness’, has changed so much over time, that the racial quality it stands for has declined.
In the early 20th century most immigrants were not considered white (Italians, Irish, Greeks, Jews, and many others). The Immigration Act of 1924 was aimed at limiting the Southern and Eastern Europeans who were immigrating in large numbers (setting quotas on immigrants from certain European countries), as well as prohibiting the immigration of East Asia.
Whiteness implicated that one was of Northern European descent! But by applying the “unprincipled exception”, ‘whiteness’ nowadays can almost be won legally and may well result in the absorption of the “white” race by “colored” races which would actually mean a corruption of society.
By applying the “unprincipled exception”, the concept “white race” has extended so much and has become so empty of content, that - following Auster’s footsteps - it has no value any longer as a guiding factor of civilization and even implies that, ultimately, the world can be seen as only being composed of simply black and white races.
And here is my reply:-
Ian Jobling put up a post two days ago at The Inverted World attacking Kevin MacDonald once again. I thought it was about time someone put a friendly hand on Ian’s shoulder and asked him what the hell he thinks he’s up to, so I visited the thread and posted the comment below. Because of the likelihood that it will never make the page, like one or two others on the JQ I’ve offered, I am posting it here.
And Ian gives his response:-
Apparently, you and I are criminals. Or possible animals. I never got to find out which.
Yesterday at midnight in multicultural Greenwich - the Observational one, not the beatified Mr Ginsberg’s - erstwhile MR luminary JWH alerted me to a rather Sub-Condescending thread at GNXP. Ever the sharp-eye, he had already posted on it at Western Biopolitics (which, if it isn’t already a staple read for you guys, darn well should be). He thought I should get up to speed.
So here’s the gist.
Godless Capitalist, co-founder of GNXP and the attack-dog of South Asian cognitive elitism in the Kwa, took it upon himself to contribute to a GNXP thread on Steve Sailer’s self-promoting VDare review of Ross Douthat and Reihan Salam’s book, Grand New Party. THE political book of 2008, apparently. Anyway, I will return to it shortly. First, let’s deal with gc.
Now, both Douthat and Salam - a “Bangladeshi-American” like Razib Khan - are editors at TheAtlantic.com. Douthat had put up a couple of posts on Sailer’s review, the threads to both of which degenerated into the usual, pointless argument with difference-deniers and the kind of mental dross which manages to make every third word “racist”.
On July 10th Razib - he, we must presume, of the vindictive inter-racial porn link - posted a short entry headed Sailer on Grand New Party. The thread to this post also got a bit stuck on sticking it to the racially-aware white American - but in that special GNXP way, since the Sub-Con cognitive elitist’s promulgation of human difference is what makes him cognitively elite. In this spirit Razib unburdened himself of the under-capitalised observation that:-
Now, a dispassionate, socially scientific mind encountering this unpleasant point of view for the first time might, having established that black racial consciousness and Jewish hyper-ethnocentrism are flourishing all over, ask itself whether “ethnic nationalism” has really been pathologized, or just white racial consciousness. And if it is the latter, why? And by whom?
Well, by Razib and gc, for one. Er, two. Here’s the latter’s response to his pal:-
Incompatibility is an issue somewhat at the heart of the analysis on these pages. But incompatibility came back to haunt us on Thursday when an argument developed between an automatically updated software component and the basic system we run. The updated component won and took us off-line.
My apologies for that, and the inordinate amount of time wasted while I looked for a solution in all the wrong places - not, I hope, a characteristic of anything else that goes on here. Anyhow JR resolved the problem within three hours of getting involved, and here we are again.
Thanks for keeping faith with the blog.
Three days ago the Guardian ran some knocking copy on the Telegraph’s failure to take down London Assembly member Richard Barnbrook’s blog, which is tucked away in a distant corner of the paper’s website:-
The Telegraph defended itself by attacking the Guardian mods itchy trigger fingers. The battle raged back and forth, effectively making it impossible for the Telegraph to take down Mr Barnbrook’s blog unless he goes completely mad.
So, what’s the quality of the material he’s posting? Well, as yet there are only three offerings on the page. The first, Tombstone Politics (these MyTelegraph links are very slow to load - please be patient), is a tad self-referential going on reverential. But if refreshingly sincere is what you want, that’s what you get with this guy:-
Many internet sites that focus on the problems and dangers caused by the massive immigration into Europe of nonWestern and mainly Moslem peoples reject contributions by people who do not support Israel.
“Fjordman” is a well-known contributor to several of these sites and he has written an article that sums up the arguments why Europeans should support Israel. (Why Europeans Should Support Israel, Created 2007-03-12 07:49 Published on Brussels Journal.
I find “Fjordman’s” arguments in favor of making support for Israel a priority unpersuasive.
“Fjordman” asserts there is a powerful “anti-Israeli and sometimes outright anti-Semitic current that is prevalent in too much of Europe’s media”. “Fjordman” does not define what he means by “anti-Israeli” or “anti-Semitic” nor does he provide any examples of what he obviously wants his readers to believe are twinned thought-crimes.
Since expressing hostility against Jews, Moslems, or nonWesterners in general is subject to legal penalties in many European countries, I am not surprised that “Fjordman” evades his duty to provide examples of the alleged current.
The Guardian stuff was a little tricky in terms of striking a publishable note. But there was something very familiar about the thinking of its commenters. A bit like Samizdata without the guns. Or maybe This Inverted World without the race-realism (hell, when I think about it, I get into trouble every place I go). But one of our wise and honoured commentariat said it was possible to get published on the Guardian threads, and he was right.
The second new experience was just a single comment on a very good Michael O’Meara piece at VNN. It was his take on Le Pen’s disappointing result - superior to my effort on the same subject, I think. Michael is a deep thinker, and I suspect that he understands as much about the desirability of a synthesis between a philosophy of the right and racial nationalism as any man in America.
Today, the VNN blog (not the main page) put up a post that read “VNNForum.com Arranging New Server:”. VNN’s existing hoster had informed them that “The content on your sites is not something that we are able to accept or are willing to host here at cari.net. Per our CEO your account will be terminated immediately.”
That’s something you’ll never read at the Guardian. But you’ll never read Michael O’Meara, either.
I know several MR regulars have the highest opinion of Jim Kalb. For me, he is one of the two most thoughtful bloggers on the traditionalist right (the other being the more politically “big C” Conservative Mark Richardson).
After a blogging lay-off of some months Jim is back in harness with some new posts at Turnabout. I’m sure he would welcome your patronage.
