“Poland was not large enough to lead the anti-Bolshevik movement,

I didn’t say anything about their leading the anti-Bolshevik movement, but being one nation among anywhere from 3 to a dozen or more in that regard. They were one of three nations between Russia and Germany with highly vested (and extant) anti-Soviet interests: Belarus, Ukraine, Poland. You can then add Germany, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and more, even Britain, who could have sided with a defensive effort against Soviet incursions.

“and had a choice to join the Axis against the Soviet Union.”

Joining the Axis was not an option. That is an absurd fantasy of Nazi propaganda that somehow Americans and other westerners, usually of “Axis descent”, take seriously. Poland knew what Nazi Germany had in mind - going back to Poland’s non-existence after having fought to get it back upon 123 years of occupation.

In truth, it was Germany that had the option, which it did not exercise, to join the nationalist efforts of those nations between the Soviet and more, against the Soviets (and the J.Q.) and to allow for their natural alignment against the Soviets (and the J.Q.). Instead, it opted for an imperial effort over them, including what cooperation it might have gotten from anti-Soviet Russians.

That was the crucial lack of tact..


“Poland may have wanted their state back, but their governments pretensions to be a great power were disastrous.”

Some of the proposals of Dmowski were overdrawn - but nothing comparable to Germany’s aspirations and mostly toward the east (not even as far as Germany aspired). His, as the most exaggerated of Polish nationalists, were aspirations mostly with regard to lands they’d held previously and settled to some extent. though I have heard Belarusian nationalists claim that would have been better for them strategically than a Russian take over, as it would have been easier to gain independence from Poland. As it is, people barely recognize them as a nation but only as an area of Russia.

“Also short-sighted was the attempt to win each disputed border vs. Lithuania (Vilnius), Russia, Germany, Czech (Teschen) - they may have had a claim on each, but to seek all insured they were bereft of Allies.”

The fights for Vilnius and L’viv made international cooperation against the Soviets difficult, it’s true. But these had been Polish cities at times - it would have been hard to expect Pilsudski to walk away from Vilnius, the city of his birth (the only option to leave it to his arch enemy, the Soviets, no less), but L’viv had particularly strong ties to Poland; and Poland could not foresee that it would gain area in the west. Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine have the lands and cities they do now, and hopefully they are satisfied.

Obviously Poland had a difficult position and having been non-existent for over a hundred years, all borders were disputed. However, I do believe that their policy was to emphasize the fight against one imperialist power at a time; Germany then Russia or Russia and then Germany.

Short sighted? Well they hoped for help from The US (which happened), France (which was too war weary perhaps from WWI), from Britain and more. Germany was in violation of international law.

“Germany is not blameless.  There were Poles who would support Germany in 1940”

You say that they were not blameless as one who sympathizes with Nazi Germany’s program. You don’t seem to blame them in their goals and world view but in their strategy and tactics. Polish nationalists who “supported Germany”, such as Pilsudski prior to ‘40 and any after, inasmuch as he did, were doing so for strategic reasons, to take on one enemy at a time, viewing the Soviet menace as the place to start.

“and most Germans would have accepted the 1914 Frontier.  Germany was authoritarian in First World War, and initial use of poison gas was handing their opponent propaganda coup.  However, German harshness must be compared to English laxity.”

Interesting point. I don’t think anybody disputes that Germans were ahead of the curve on the J.Q. but the problem is strategy - their effort at inter-European war would have been better directed as spearheading cooperation on the J.Q. - viz. de-nationalization, deportation and prosecution of criminals.


“The latter has proved disastrous to Western Civilization, and failed to address Hebrew mischief.”

With hindsight we can say that Britain and others should have been more vigorous about the J.Q., of course, but Germany’s imperialist ambitions and militaristic means blinded them to, and obstructed them from, garnering cooperation on the J.Q.

As Hastings’ perspective sees it, their economic prowess could have yielded great results in maintaining a then huge Germany and securing places on other continents.


If only Germany and England could have reached an arrangement to save Western Civ.

Friedrich The Great, The Kaiser and Hitler were military men, who used military means. They didn’t negotiate in good faith, they fought and fought to dominate.

“I blame the English more for failing to see Germany could be the new torch bearer”

Nobody doubted their collective logical abilities but their judgment in allowing for the barbarity of their military as a means of extending their influence and interests..

“and failing to come to a Negotiated peace in World War 1 or 2.”

I believe that Britain would not have fought if Germany had not invaded Belgium and done what they did there in WWI.

I was happy to see Hastings making the argument that Germany had the power to call-off the war before it began. That was even more the case in WWII.

Though I wonder if the same might be said of Russia -  whether they might have just let Serbia get clobbered. At that time, Polish nationalists, some, anyway, may actually have been glad for the opportunity to weaken Russia’s influence.

“Even if they couldn’t stomach the Nazis doing what the English did in Australia and North America, they could have reduced aid to Russia and allowed more of a stalemate.”

Somehow the aid should have gone to the non-imperialist nationalists, not to the Soviets, Jews, and not to the Nazis.

International support of nationalism might have been a whole lot more cunning, deft and less bloody.

From a White Nationalist perspective, anything that increases non-white lawlessness, racial polarization, and white solidarity are good things. The worst possible outcome is a police state that keeps the lid on racial violence and polarization for a few more decades, allowing miscegenation, collapsing white birthrates, and surging non-white populations to drive our race on this continent beyond recall. Thus White Nationalists must resist the conservative tendency to side with the police and demand increasingly aggressive enforcement of white standards. Why try to preserve a society in which everything white is slated for destruction? Don’t we want to “burn this bitch down” too?

But people are averse, if not hostile to them. Most people are too busy going about other business and take WWII as passe - take the Nazi defeat for granted and too impractical to start speaking about. It can be petty for them to castigate Nazi Germany at this point. I don’t like talking about it, feel compelled-to by the “geniuses” of WN. On the contrary, let the Germans (and everyone else) continue to have a chance to heal and become their authentic selves.

Did you see the documentary on the Nazi children? Goering’s niece sterilized herself. That’s terrible.

“and even embrace them,”

Obviously the vast majority do not embrace them; the few who have more sympathy for them would obviously be doing a psychological cherry-pick of which Nazi ideas they like and which they don’t. As such, they are doing a disservice to themselves and their nationalism..

“does it make sense to be so hostile to Nazis on behalf of Poles and Russians?”

So, yes, it makes sense to be hostile to Nazis on behalf of them (perhaps especially as primary targets of the Nazi wrath), but not only for them. For everybody. We can do better than that.

Beginning of an Italian Civil War against Immigration

December 15, 2014 — Enza Ferreri

http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/12/beginning-of-an-italian-civil-war-against-immigration/

For once we have riots that are not by anti-white black protesters — to whose violence Ferguson, among others, has accustomed us — but by indigenous Europeans defending their land against invaders.

In Rome, on the night of 10–11 November, a group of residents of the Tor Sapienza suburb living in public housing attempted to assault the local centre for refugees and asylum seekers incongruously named “Il sorriso” (The Smile), throwing stones and bottles and setting dumpsters on fire, amidst broken glass and screams of “We want to burn you”.

The reception centre houses over 40 youths — Gambians, Congolese, Ethiopians and other Africans, plus Afghans and Syrians — rescued from their boats crossing the Mediterranean.

The local residents have long been concerned about health and crime issues associated with Il sorriso and, after their complaints to the authorities went unheeded, they took matters into their own hands.


“The tension” said Tommaso Ippoliti, president of the Tor Sapienza Committee, “is skyrocketing. For years this neighbourhood has been abandoned, you cannot go out at night, and lately assaults and thefts have increased. A few days ago a girl walking her dog was molested in the park in mid-afternoon. As a committee we distance ourselves from the violence of last night, but people are rightly exasperated. We demand more security.”

“Police are scarce and the city has not responded to requests for more security and better controls of the migrant centres,” he added….

Once again, as throughout the West, the costs of immigration fall disproportionately, if not exclusively, on the working and middle classes of the countries being inundated by non-European immigration, while elites can safely ignore the problems.


...the hospitality of the immigrant centre: 30 euros a day, accommodation, food, and cigarette voucher— not a bad deal.

Not a bad deal? it’s beyond outrageous!

...There is talk of a new Italian civil war.

..To date, Italy has rescued 160,000 people from the Mediterranean.

In my stressful but impassioned despair over miscegenation a fart came out. Not loud but audible and I apologized. Being the nice people that they were they told me not to worry about it. But one of them was a lawyer who angrily said that I probably had not broken any law, not for the fart, but for the racial talk. At that moment, I farted loudly and said slowly, “niggers and Jews”...everybody laughed and we all went into a collective trance for the next few hours…

I can’t tell if you’re being facetious here.

Did this really happen? How did you end up talking about miscegenation and farting out loud in an AA meeting? What do you mean by collective trance?

Note that Sheehan presents an alternative interpretation of Heidegger and that there is great debate between Sheehan’s interpretation and the other interpretation presented by William Richardson in “Heidegger: Through Phenomenology to Thought”

Richard Capobianco’s latest book, “Heidegger’s Way of Being”, reemphasizes the case for Richardson’s interpretation.

From the beginning of Capobianco’s new book:

What was the “it” that Heidegger—for a whole lifetime—had his eyes upon? This “it” (es) that “gives” (gibt) so richly and inexhaustibly is Being itself (Sein selbst) as the temporal-spatial emerging and shining-forth of beings in their beingness as gathered in the ensemble. Being as “manifestness” or “manifestation” (Offenbarkeit), this is the matter itself (die Sein selbst) of Heidegger’s thought—which, remarkably enough, is at risk of being “forgotten” all over again. A Seinsvergessenheit is settling in anew—and in Heidegger studies of all places. Over the last decade there has been a trend in the Heidegger scholarship towards understanding Being as reducible to “meaning” (“sense”), that is, towards understanding Being only in terms of Dasein’s constitutive meaning-making activity. Yet die Sache: not principally Dasein, but Sein qua manifestation—what Heidegger came to call “the truth of Being”—in relation to Dasein.

The Straussian Assault on America’s European Heritage

Ricardo Duchesne


http://www.counter-currents.com/2014/12/the-straussian-assault-on-americas-european-heritage/#more-51335

As the Australian Frank Salter has written:

The United States began as an implicit ethnic state, whose Protestant European identity was taken for granted. As a result, the founding fathers made few remarks about ethnicity, but John Jay famously stated in 1787 that America was ‘one united people, a people descended from the same ancestors,’ a prominent statement in one of the republic’s founding philosophical documents that attracted no disagreement (230).

This idea that Western nations are all propositional nations is not restricted to the United States, but has been applied to the settler nations of Canada and Australia, and the entire continent of Europe, under the supposition that, with the Enlightenment, the nations of Europe came to be redefined by such “universal” values as individual rights, separation of church and state, democracy. As a result, mainstream liberals and conservatives today regularly insist that Europe is inherently a “community of values,” not of ethnicity or religion, but of values that belong to humanity. Accordingly, the reasoning goes, if Europe is to be committed to these values it must embrace immigration as part of its identity. Multiculturalism is simply a means of facilitating the participation of immigrants into this universal culture, making them feel accepted by recognizing their particular traditions, while they are gradually nudge to think in a universal way. But, as Salter points out,

This is hardly a complete reading of Enlightenment ideas, which include the birth of modern nationalism, the democratic privileging of majority ethnicity, and the linking of minority emancipation to assimilation. The Enlightenment also celebrates empirical science including biology, which culminated in man’s fuller understanding of himself as part of nature (213).

Liberals in the 19th century were fervent supporters of nationalism and the essential importance of being part of a community with shared traditions and common ancestry. Eric Hobsbawm’s claim that Europeans nations were “ideological constructs” created without a substantial grounding in immemorial lands, folkways, and ethnos, should be contrasted to the ideas of such liberal nationalists as Camillo di Cavour (1810–1861), Max Weber (1864–1920), and even John Stuart Mill (1806–1873). While these liberals emphasized a form of nationalism compatible with classical liberal values, they were firm supporters of national identities at a time when a “non-xenophobic nationalism” was meant to acknowledge the presence of what were essentially European ethnic minorities within European nations. None of these liberals ever envisioned the nations of Europe as mere places identified by liberal values belonging to everyone else and obligated to become “welcome” mats for the peoples of the world.

Moreover, Enlightenment thinkers were the progenitors of a science of ethnic differences, which has since been producing ever more empirical knowledge, and has today convincingly shown that ethnicity is not merely a social construct but also a biological substrate. As Edward O. Wilson, Pierre van den Berghe, and Salter have written, shared ethnicity is an expression of extended kinship at the genetic level; members of an ethnic group are biologically related in the same way that members of a family are related even though the genetic connection is not as strongly marked. Numerous papers – which I will reference below with links — are now coming out supporting the view that humans are ethnocentric and that such altruistic dispositions as sharing, loyalty, caring, and even motherly love, are exhibited primarily and intensively within in-groups rather than toward a universal “we” in disregard for one’s community. Strauss’s concern for the identity of Jews is consistent with this science.

The Straussian language about “natural rights” belonging to “man as man” is mostly gibberish devoid of any historical veracity and scientific support. Hegel long refuted the argument that humans were born with natural rights which they never enjoyed until a few philosophers discovered them and then went on to create ex nihilo Western civilization. Man “in his immediate and natural way of existence” was never the possessor of natural rights. The natural rights the founders spoke about, which were also in varying ways announced in the creation of the nations of Canada and Australia, and prescribed in the modern constitutions of European nations, were acquired and won only through a long historical movement, the origins of which may be traced back to ancient Greece, but which also included, as Havers insists, the history of Christianity and, I would add, the legal history of Rome, the Catholic Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Protestant Reformation, the Enlightenment, and the Bourgeois Revolutions.

The Straussians believe that the way to overcome the tendency of liberal societies to relativism or the celebration of pluralistic conceptions of life without any sense of ranking the lifestyle of citizens is to impart reverence and patriotic attachment for the Anglo-American tradition by emphasizing not the heterogeneous identity of this tradition but its foundation in the ancient philosophical commitment to “the good” and the “perfection of humanity.” But this effort to instill national commitment by teaching citizens about the classics of ancient Greece and the great statesmen of liberal freedom is doomed to failure and has been a failure. The problem of nihilism is nonexistent in societies with a strong sense of reverence for traditional practices, authoritative patriarchal figures, and a sense of peoplehood and homeland. The way out of the crisis of Western nihilism is to re-nationalize liberalism, throw away the cultural Marxist notion that freedom means liberation from all identities not chosen by the individual, and accentuate the historical and natural-ethnic basis of European identity.

Jews, Europeans, and “Whiteness”

Richard B. Spencer · December 8, 2014

Writing in The Times of Israel, Hila Hershkoviz takes on a prickly question—Are Jews White?

  In response to Haaretz article “Jews, white privilege and the fight against racism in America” (by Benjy Cannon 4/12/14) I would like to say loud and clear: Ashkenazi Jews are not white.

  Every time I read about a Jew somewhere identifying as a white person, I cringe. As an Israeli Jew, who like most other Israeli Jews, is completely foreign to the concept of Jews being “white” I would like to address this article to my Jewish brothers and sisters in America.

  Ashkenazi Jews who identify as “white”, please understand the following:

  1.History and identity – As late as 1987 the US legally defined Jews as non-white. To the best of my knowledge, 50 years ago Jews had the same skin color as they do today. I deduce that white is not skin color, it is first and foremost an issue history and identity. The “white people world” is represented by its European (often colonial) history, it’s culture, heroes, it’s Kings, ethos, faith etc. – and Ashkenazi Jews are not part of that world. Their heroes are the Maccabees and not the Vikings or Joan of Arc, their Kings are David King of Israel and Hezekiah King of Judah (both archeologically confirmed historical figures) and not Kings Edward and George.

  Secondly, Jews are not a “religion”. While in the Western world identities fall under the categories of religion or race, Middle Eastern people have tribal identities that are based neither the former nor the latter. Jews, similar to Pashtuns (who also often have pale skin and yet would not identify as white people) and other Middle Eastern Tribes, are neither religion nor race but a tribe. Jewish identity since the days of the Kingdoms of Judah and Israel had always been a tribal/national peoplehood. While tribal practices and customs (which is often incorrectly referred to as “Judaism”) and a strong biological link between many of the members are certainly present, Israelite identity was never based on either of these. Israelite identity has always been a tribal membership that goes by lineage (being born into the Tribes of Israel) or tribal acceptance (which is incorrectly translated as “conversion”). The identity Ashkenazi Jews have today is identical to that of King David whose great grandmother was a Moabite convert, but was nonetheless a Jew by virtue of being born into the Tribes of Israel by lineage.

  You are Jews not because of your “religion” (are you even religious?), but because you were born into a tribe/people called the Nation of Israel. You are not “white people” with a “Jewish religion”, you are Jews – members of a people who origniated in Judea, whether you adhere to the laws of the tribe or not.

  Thirdly, Ashkenazi Jews have been the victims of Europeans and Western imperialism for centuries precisely because they were not perceived as part of the “white people world”, beginning with the Roman colonialism of their nation state and ending with 6 million of them being killed precisely because they were non-whites.

  2.Culture – Whether it’s the Hebrew calendar, the tefillin they put on at their Bar Mitzvah identical to the ancient second Temple tefillin found in Qumran and across Israel or celebrating the Judean revolt for independence in our historic homeland on Hanukkah – Ashkenazi Jews have kept the entire indigenous culture, customs, traditions, books, and to a high extant language and of their ancestors – Judeans and other Israelites.

  3.Biology – Although biology is not the main part of the issue, Ashkenazi Jews are not genetically white either. An extensive number of genetic studies show they originated in the Middle East, that despite European admixture they are genetic brothers of other Jews, Palestinians, Druze and Lebanese Arabs and share a highly significant amount of ancestry with Sephardi Jews to whom they are genetically almost identical. Tests also show Ahskenazi Levites are descendants of Hebrews, and Ashkenazi Cohanim share lineage with Sephardi Cohanim.

  Lastly, Ashkenazi Jews, whether the world likes it or not (and apparently it does not), are direct descendants of the Tribes of Israel, as we know from history, culture, science and a little something I like to call reality. Those who wish to deny it for political or theological reasons, should try forming an alliance with holocaust deniers because the two are no different.

Jews are not white…
