Prowling the Moral High Ground

Michael Colhaze


If I wasn’t hard, I wouldn’t be alive. If I couldn’t ever be gentle, I wouldn’t deserve to be alive.                                                                                                                           Phillip Marlowe

Recently I took a few days out to organize my library. It was then that a brittle and much yellowed paperback passed through my hands, and I could not but leave the shelves to themselves, sit down and be haunted once again by one of the finest writers the world has so far produced.

Because this was The High Window, my first Chandler ever, and I remember to this day how it had touched a chord deep in my young heart. I don’t know anymore who gave it to me, or if I bought it myself with the pennies scraped up while breaking my back on a construction site during summer holidays. It is in German, of course, has an unassuming cover, and belonged to a much sanitized pulp-fiction series long since ashes and dust. Flipping through it after so many years, I realized to my surprise how well it had been translated. An insight based on the fact that only a decade later, and once my English began to improve, I knew almost by heart whatever the great man had written in life.

Chandler is not just one more detective writer. He is a craftsman so brilliant, has an imagination so wholly original, that no consideration of modern American literature ought to exclude him.

Fair praise extended by a fine contemporary, and it doesn’t even touch the central issue. Yet if you look him up in the Encyclopaedia Britannica, all you’ll find is a few lines that commend his books as outstanding examples of regional writing and the hero as an impecunious but honest and courageous upholder of ideals in an opportunistic and sometimes brutal society. Though whatever these ideals may consist of, you’ll never know. The whole vitae is limited to six sentences in total and a lot shorter than that of an obscure Indian astrophysicist on the same page who formulated the currently accepted theory on the latter evolutionary stages of massive stars.

Or was it the former?

However that may be, I always wondered why a writer, once much acclaimed and treasured by millions of sober and intelligent readers, could be treated so dismissively by an encyclopaedia that claims to be the most comprehensive and sophisticated of them all. Now I know better.

Because Phillip Marlowe is a perfect paradigm of the quintessential White Hero, and therefore dangerous. The last thing our hostile elite needs as a glowing role-model for the impressible masses is a plucky insolent dick with clearly defined morals. Inscrutable ones, in fact, unbending and incorruptible, and sustained by a healthy common sense that can see through the lies and deceptions of a whole age without going over the top.

“There ain’t no clean way to make a hundred million bucks. Maybe the headman thinks his hands are clean, but somewhere along the line guys got pushed to the wall, nice little businesses got the ground cut from under them and had to sell out for nickels, decent people lost their jobs, stocks got rigged on the markets, proxies got bought up like a pennyweight of old gold, and the five percenters and the big law firms got paid hundred-grand fees for beating some law the people wanted but the rich guys didn’t, on account of it cut into their Profits. Big money is big power, and big power gets used wrong. It’s the system. Maybe it’s the best we can get, but it still ain’t any Ivory Soap deal.”

What is more, this shoddy low-budget shamus without any connections in high places has not only the nerve to take on whoever needs to be taken on, the big guys included, but owns a good and great heart as well. Though not that you notice it straight away. It operates somewhat under the surface, and those who haven’t got one themselves would never notice it’s there. But we do, and that is why we are so delighted when he puts up a fight for the downtrodden and abused, and never mind if that leaves him occasionally at odds with his customers. Meaning when he has no qualms to deliver the plain and naked truth, even if that can be pretty devastating.

“You are just that kind of guy. For a long time I couldn’t figure you out at all. You had nice ways and nice qualities, but there was something wrong. You had standards and you lived up to them, but they were personal. They had no relation to any kind of ethics or scruples. You were a nice guy because you had a nice nature. But you were just as happy with mugs or hoodlums as with honest men. Provided the hoodlums spoke fairly good English and had fairly acceptable table manners. You are a moral defeatist. I think maybe the war did it and again I think maybe you were born that way.”

This was written in the Forties, at a time when most people thought the world was still in order, that their elected representatives could be trusted within reason, that law and justice prevailed in a general sort of way. But already then the good old ways were coming to an end.

“I used to like this town,” I said, just to be saying something and not to be thinking too hard. “A long time ago. There were trees along Wilshire Boulevard. Beverly Hills was a country town. Westwood was bare hills and lots offering at eleven hundred dollars and no takers. Hollywood was a bunch of frame houses on the inter-urban line. Los Angeles was just a big dry sunny place with ugly homes and no style, but good-hearted and peaceful. It had the climate they just yap about now. People used to sleep out on porches. Little groups who thought they were intellectual used to call it the Athens of America. It wasn’t that, but it wasn’t a neon-lighted slum either.”

All this has changed in a few decades only.

Now we get characters like this Steelgrave (a racketeer whose real name was Weepy Moyer and who’d snuffed out Moe Stein) owning restaurants. We’ve got the big money, the sharp shooters, the percentage workers, the fast dollar boys, the hoodlums out of New York and Chicago and Detroit. We’ve got the flash restaurants and nightclubs they run, and the hotels and apartment houses they own, and the grifters and con men and female bandits that live in them. The luxury trades, the pansy decorators, the Lesbian dress designers, the riff-raff of a big hard-boiled city with no more personality than a paper cup.

And Tinsel Town succumbing slowly but surely to the riff-raff that runs it today.

Some Hollywood big shot, probably. Some wizard of the slobbery kiss, and the pornographic dissolve.

Thus during Chandler’s time the type was there already, but less brazenly odious and more suavely laying the groundwork for what we have today. Namely unabashed propaganda hacks who are relentlessly churning out undisguised declarations of war against the White Christian majority. And this solely by means of the power of their billion bucks portfolio, and without any reliance on real armies that will be needed to defend them in the looming conflict they are stoking so relentlessly. Just look at the sordid posse and its grovelling creatures when they confer on each other their silly Oscars. Doesn’t it look uncannily as if they are all dancing on a volcano?

But back to our dick.

“One of these days,” he [the movie agent Ballou] said, “I’m going to make the mistake which a man in my business dreads above all other mistakes. I’m going to find myself doing business with a man I can trust and I’m going to be just too goddamn smart to trust him.”

A rare breed these days, men you can trust. Somehow liberal education and daily example have made them redundant, mere halfwits like Don Quixote who’ll never stand a chance to topple the windmills. That’s at least what is unabashedly insinuated by the mass media when we are shown the obscenely rich of today who all seem to be prototypical moral defeatists and find it perfectly natural to flaunt their ill-gotten plunder whenever the occasion offers. And thus deepen the abyss between themselves and the ordinary folks who are either too dumb to get rich or—unbelievable yet true—refuse to be as ruthless and grasping as these much touted grifters and glitterati.

Which is one of the reasons why a man like Phillip Marlowe can’t be dismissed as an anachronism, but continues to haunt our conscious hopes or subconscious dreams to this day. Because deep down the majority of people, and certainly those with a Christian European background, believe that live and let live is a fundamental human requisite for the survival of mankind in general. Thus he has a powerful ally among his readers, namely an innate awareness of what is wrong and what is right, and that this understanding constitutes a cornerstone of their existence, no matter if they are firm believers or agnostics like himself. Which helps him to unravel the highly complex stratagems he’s taken on for a few bucks only, and to make sure that sanity and decency triumph in the end.

Now you may say that all this sounds a bit too starry-eyed by half, because look at what’s happening today, and how on earth could we ever overcome the powers that be, even if we had Marlowe’s stamina and intelligence. The latter would indeed be wishful thinking, since he is merely a romantic champion invented by one of the finest writers ever. But it doesn’t mean that his ethics and scruples are in any way outdated or meaningless. We can elevate him, at least in private and without much publicity, to an acceptable ideal, even a leading light, simply because he’s been gumshoeing and plotting and surviving in a world that is essentially our own.

We are many, and our detractors are few, and if we unite in the knowledge that what happens right now is an absolute anachronism indeed, that those who rob us and manipulate us and send us into criminal wars are in fact Chandler’s hoodlums, only with slightly different nicknames, we stand a chance to defeat them one day.

He wasn’t listening. He was frowning at his own thoughts. “There’s a peculiar thing about money”, he went on. “In large quantities it tends to have a life of its own, even a conscience of its own. The power of money becomes very difficult to control. Man has always been a venal animal. The growth of populations, the huge costs of wars, the incessant pressure of confiscatory taxation— all these things make him more and more venal. The average man is tired and scared, and a tired and scared man can’t afford ideals. He has to buy food for his family. In our time we have seen a shocking decline in both public and private morals. You can’t expect quality from people whose lives are subjected to a lack of quality.”

But these are the words of an old and very rich man who long since has lost all his illusions. Because they don’t take into consideration what will happen when the average man is finally pushed too hard against the wall, when he had to sell his nice little business for a few nickels, when he can’t buy food for his family anymore.

If suspense and menace didn’t defeat reason, there would be very little drama.

As for our dick, his stratagems may be too farfetched where some are concerned. Yet his romantic competence is also substantial, and not that easily dismissed.

“She’ll be always high on nerves and low on animal emotion. She’ll always breathe thin air and smell snow. She’d made a perfect nun. The religious dream, with its narrowness, its stylised emotions and its grim purity, would have been a perfect release for her.”

Thus after he saved her from evil and drove her home to safety and said good-bye for good…

…I had a funny feeling as I saw the house disappear, as though I had written a poem and it was very good and I had lost it and would never remember it again.

As for myself, later on I’ll take another glance at the old paperback that turned up by just a lucky chance. And perhaps it will do to me what it did sometimes to its implacable hero.

I sat very still and listened to the evening grow quiet outside the windows. And very slowly I grew quiet with it.

    @Jason Speaks:

    I just don’t look to my politicians for historical guidance.

    Surely everyone should tattoo this statement on his forearm as a daily reminder of how to think! Even were it so done, alas, I fear that after a short while, the tattooed would forget its wisdom and begin making exceptions for this or that “decent sort of guy.”

    There is a gulf fixed between the skills required of the successful politician, whether he be a good man or a bad, and those required of the historian, the political scientist, and the political philosopher or theorist. It’s not a matter to be sad, happy, or angry about; it’s simply a fact to be lived with—more often than not, to be endured.

    When Lord Byron called George Washington “the Cincinnatus of the West,” I wonder how many people saw his point: that there were basically only two such paragons in 2,200 years of Western history. To build a theory of a society on such a foundation bids fair to stretch exceptionalism a bit far, even for a neocon!

    And maybe even Washington … well, let’s leave that for another day, shall we?

    @Jason Speaks: I understand your point about “feminine” used as an easy way to belittle someone. And I agree that it cheapens the converstion. However, it is legit to use “feminine” as a mindset as Weininger did. Today we live in a very feminized society, a Jewish mindset, as described by Weininger.

    @Lew: Nikos Michaloliakos is great. He doesn’t pull his punches or try not to offend. He gives the impression that he really does believe in what he is saying, a necessity for any leader (which is why I question WN leaders having non-white wives – you have to wonder). I’m just of the opinion that revisionism is a good tool for breaking the mental matrix. 9/11 is also a tool. I just don’t see any good reason to shy away from them. People need to hear something a few times before they start letting their guard down. Thx for posting the vid

    @ Alice, “We were not liberated, we have been snookered into debt and wage slavery.” – I absolutely agree. At one time in American a family only needed one working adult to live. Now most families need two (or think they do to keep up with the Jones. We can thank advertizing for this). Without the constant brainwashing of young women to ‘make something of themselves’ i.e. work outside the home, more woman would follow their instincts and have children. No one will take care of a child better then its mother. By removing the mother from the home the government is able to start the propaganda at very early age. Imprinting – think Konrad Lorenz. Today parents say X and the child spats back Y that they leant in school, very Soviet.

    By the way, has anyone noticed that Pat Buchanan is now showing up on Fox News? He is on the Special Report with Bret Baier show, sitting down from Charles Krauthammer. I assume Pat is there due to constant pressure from views for an authentic conservative voice. It has some significance that he is on their show, given that Pat still writes articles deeply critical of Israel and Neocons like this one:

    @Lew:

    Yes you are right. My shorter response here is, it is much easier to conflate accepted history and politics. All political parties look to the past, but it is the past everyone knows (or thinks they know). It is VERY helpful if another group of historical specialists lays the groundwork for politicians to utilize later.

    Hasn’t this been the pattern of the Left? First rewrite history, then make use of it? I am talking about political campaigns making use of the lies the Left sets down a decade or two earlier. Of course, this was a Leftist or Anti-White agenda in total, I understand that, but as far as retail politics is concerned, it seems to follow the earlier wholesale work done by academics getting something accepted by the public as “truth”.

    I’m not as 100% certain of this as I may sound, but this is my general impression of how things progress.

    @Lew:

    The gentleman handled himself well in that video. I very much think the record should be set straight on any important historical event. But when you mention the historical claims that Anti-Whites use, they are able to do that because those claims have already been established as true in schools and universities (even though many of them are not true). Having claims that are generally accepted as true makes things easier for a political party to take advantage of them.

    If the claim you point to is not only controversial, but not even believed by the vast majority of people, then I am not sure how you move ahead in a practical sense, in terms of the next decade or so. It’s like having a political party that challenges a major law in physics – I tend to think it is better to let the physicists hash it out, not politicians. I just don’t look to my politicians for historical guidance.

    I feel like many WN are, in effect, swinging for the fences and striking out. No one in the West, outside of a very small community, actually believes the holocaust didn’t occur. So, I am tempted to say that should be the province of a group of specialists, as opposed to campaigners for office.

    And you have to remember, many of us are not Hitler guys. I’m not into the whole pledging personal obedience to one person. I’m not looking for a massively centralized state, and I’m not looking for Oriental style mass demonstrations.

    I’m more cowboy than N*zi. I don’t have a big personal state in sticking up for The Fuhrer or his regime. As another example, I don’t think if an Australian pro-White party popped up, it’s first or second order of business should be discussing the holocaust (assuming it is legal there).

    But, if the events of WWII can seriously and legitimately be reframed, then that work should be done. And sense we in the US are one of the very few places where it can be done legally, we have an obligation to do so.

    @Jason Speaks:

    Whether a political party is the best way to settle a historical claim is a separate issue I don’t have an easy answer for.

    On the contrary, it’s an easy answer. History matters, and assuming the context is right, we absolutely must bring in history into the political struggle. It must be done to spread the truth and for political gain. Just look at the other side. The other side brings in history all the time! Although, in their case, it is usually false history.

    As recently as the last week, Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State and a prominent member of the Democratic party, dealt with a historical matter. It was a speech on the holocaust (and she lied to the world’s face about it I might add since the holocaust did not happen). It’s a perfect example of a political party blending politics and history.

    In addition, I doubt anyone has failed to notice that the anti-Whites always justify affirmative action and other anti-White policies using historical claims. If you question affirmative action, the anti-Whites will bring up Jim Crow and alleged historic discrimination against Blacks. For the same reason, the anti-Whites constantly harp on how the founding fathers were slave owners, or how history shows Euros are uniquely evil.

    In the right context, bringing in history can advance objectives and be lethal to the opposition. It’s why Jews and the anti-Whites do it. They wouldn’t invest so so much in combining history and politics if it did not matter. Let’s learn from our enemies.

    Again, for any who missed it above, here is the leader of the Greek Golden Dawn showing how it should be done when the holocaust comes up.

    I meant say, to be more clear, that we have an obligation to discuss the aspects of history which are illegal in Europe, at least as far as historians are concerned. Whether a political party is the best way to settle a historical claim is a separate issue I don’t have an easy answer for.

    @Lew:

    What I mean is, we cannot expect parties in most of Europe to discuss revisionist history, given that it is illegal. Of course, we can here in the US. Indeed, I would say, we have a moral obligation to set the record straight, since we are one of the few places in the West where it can be publicly discussed. I’d also say we have a moral obligation to point out how the oppressive speech codes in Europe and do what we can to work for their repeal.

    Now, as to what is practical for a political party to tackle, even if legal, that is a different issue.

    FWIW, In Greece, the NS-like Golden Dawn party won power without making revisionism a “core” issue. That said, while revisionism doesn’t appear to be a core issue for them, they don’t mince words when it comes up either. This must see You Tube interview shows that when a dishonest journalist tried to link GD to the Holocaust, the leader of the Golden Dawn party was ready and loaded for bear. I think Golden Dawn is the model to follow on this issue. I love the way he handled it.

    Well I’ve seen posters on various sites make the claim that the reason other people don’t understand them is because they have “feminized” brains. In almost every case, they simply haven’t made a very good argument and the charge of being feminized is basically a form of name calling.

    I’ve also seen a few posters on WN sites be quick to attack women when they had a disagreement along the same lines.

    Yes, they like to work the Jews up as much, maybe more, than they like to work us up. But the point I’m making is of course the use of the holocaust.

    I certainly agree that we must beware Big Brother, but it seems to me that if women took abortion seriously we would have far fewer. We are a dying race and we will not face facts by looking at the real, irreversible consequences of our choices.

    Despite the standard unsavory reputation of the author of the fourteen words, i wholeheartedly support the sentiment is expresses. That means real men and women, in the real world, remember to whom and what they owe some loyalty, kiss and makeup, and make babies! Nothing else will do the trick no matter how much I admire the men’s theories. Not so long ago this was something every woman knew in her bones. We were not liberated, we have been snookered into debt and wage slavery.

I totally agree that abortion should not be taken casually, but I’m sure the vast majority of women take it very seriously. It’s a personal issue and it should stay personal. The best course is for people to mind their own business other wise we just invite Big Brother.

    I too, agree that the government is too involved with our lives. However, I have a major problem with the forces in America, beginning with Jewish feminists, who successfully reduced the question from a serious moral issue to no different from getting a haircut. It is not the effect on our laws that is the primary problem, it is the effect on our minds and morals.

    @Alice Teller: Given the fact that the spiritus rector of the animal liberation movement, Peter Singer, is Jewish on both parental sides, it is hardly surprising that the status to which pets have been raised is as high as or higher than us but not so high as them.

    One of the greatest things about animals is that, whatever they may do to your furniture or your real estate, they will never, ever transgress hate speech laws!

    As for the Thinking Housewife – fear not, it takes a real man to deal with real women. As a women who prides herself on discerning the difference between real men and the sad lot out there competing with and losing to the cheap imitation men which feminism has produced, you have my vote of confidence.

    @Alice Teller: First and foremost, I wish to second virtually everything you wrote to Vlad. The “virtually” concerns the following nit, which you will forgive me for picking.

    Like corrupt nuns in the middle ages …

    The bulk of what corruption there was (a great deal at times, sadly) came before and after the High Middle Ages. The very worst came during the Renaissance. It was surely no coincidence that the two great reformer-founders, the Spaniard Dominic and the Italian Francis, began their separate work at precisely the same time: just after the year 1200. Both men specifically addressed the moral turpitude then rampant among priests and nuns and lay brothers, not simply in society at large. In no small part thanks to their influence and impact, monastic corruption, whether among men or women, did not again become a serious concern until well into the fifteenth century.

    It used to be said that Nature supplies every age with the men and women needed to deal with its peculiar crises. Like you, Jason, Vlad, Trenchant, and countless others, I am still keeping my eyes peeled, but qualified candidates for dealing with our overriding crisis aren’t precisely thick on the ground.

    @Pierre de Craon:
    Indeed! Phyllis McGinley, a Pulitzer Prize winner, wrote a delightful book calling out the feminists back in 1960. Sixpence in Her Shoe describes the delightful world that white women gave up. To many young women today it must seem like a fairy tale. When white men and women worked together to build families; when white men were permitted to get about the business of running the world – life was not perfect. However, it was a happier, safer and more prosperous world for all people.

    May I recommend the blog The Thinking Housewife for ammunition and an intelligent, Christian view of our sorry plight today.

    @Trenchant: And the same darling folks were responsible for both demises, of course.

    Any chance that Phyllis McGinley is a name to you? The term “popular writer” doesn’t truly do her justice, because it fails to account for the fact that both reading and writing were far more genuinely popular then than now. But to my point. One of Miss McGinley’s constant topics was one that Alice Teller (happily) keeps reminding us of: the indispensability and complementarity of men and women to one another. (Hard as it may be to believe, she got to write about these matters in the pre-Tribal New Yorker, inter alia.) Anyway, I couldn’t have been more than sixteen when I stumbled upon something she wrote, a witty paraphrase of Hamlet’s famous remark to Horatio, that has stuck with me through the decades and is strikingly apropos to your comment: “… I know that there is a divinity that shapes our ends for skirts, theirs for pants.”

    As you rightly suggest, it’s not just the differences in those ends that the enemy has pretended don’t exist, but it is hardly coincidental that it’s those ends, too.

    Congratulations on making such wonderful memories for your children!

    Indeed, we are a profoundly disturbed people. At a recent gathering of old friends I was struck by how few had grandchildren. We are literally a dying people, and few want to discuss it. Like corrupt nuns in the middle ages, far too many women have elevated pets to levels which verge on the sinful. I love my animals, often like them better than many people, but I have no trouble distinguishing them from my children.

    The good news is that many are beginning to see all that the feminist promises have led to empty lives and wage slavery. However, if they come here looking for an alternative they will be met with a gang of he-man woman-haters.

    I am the first to acknowledge that women brought this dreadful state of affairs upon ourselves, and men have every reason to be angry at feminists. However, women cannot repair it on our own. It will take all of us to change things. Men must have the courage to resume roles of leadership – honorable, loving leadership. The balance must be restored. Without it nothing else matters.

    @Pierre de Craon:

    Well I have reluctantly been forced to learn about this so-called side of White Nationalism, but mercifully, little depth is required to understand it (as you might imagine). There are only so many ways to slice up a human body. What I find striking is their utter contempt for all human beings, including Whites. Superficially, this is because Whites haven’t awoken to their predicament and these “heroes” are deeply frustrated by all the “sheeple” around them, but I suspect that is all a cover: They just hate humanity, or at the very least, thrill to the idea of terrifying people – all for a good cause, you understand.

    In other words, the blow ‘em up, gun ‘em down, mass murder fantasies are hardly reluctantly cogitated over. And a few of these sad cases have actually carried out some these fever dreams, only to saddle anyone who humanely speaks out on behalf of Whites with what appears to be an almost indelible stain. What angers me the most, is that most of them are not truly pro-White, nor do they conduct themselves as White men. Rather, they are thugs acting out criminal desires.

    Well that’s my venting. They get to vent, why can’t I?

    So true. I think way too many Whites still think they are living in a world in which they are totally secure and dominant. In their minds, Whites still run most of the world. They haven’t confronted the decline in their numbers and power. Most don’t realize the “Whites” they see in the media are mostly Jews. As long as they are under that illusion they won’t wake up.

    @Alice Teller: You are so right, Alice. Until white men and white women decide we need each other for the future of the white race and stop fighting each other, we are making it too easy for the other side to continue to cheat us out of our countries.
    I just finished a long vacation in the Pacific Northwest, 4 weeks in a rented RV with the family. I camped, fished, rafted, hiked, shot some weapons (including numerous automatics – gotta love the attitude toward guns in Montanta – even my boys were allowed to shoot-em up!) toured, ate and ate, watched shows, talked with the people, shopped and even checked out a few churches. It is such a nice reminder of what America was like when I was a kid, all those white people. Who would ever want to change such polite and crime free societies?
    As I drove back toward the South, the country slowly degraded into the trashy, impolite, criminally inclined diverse hell hole I’ve come to hate.
    I really am heartened by the fact that non whites don’t seem to like to live in places (other than cities) that have snow on the ground for months – it is just too hard for them. Somehow, though not particularly racially conscious, the whites of the Pacific Northwest don’t seem to tolerate free loaders or non self-sufficient people, so maybe it will serve as the undesignated safe zone for the white race.
    If we could just get white women who believe in the unsurpassed joy of white babies to have them again, and white men who are willing to do whatever it takes to sustain them all no matter what the cost, we could rebuild a once great white country.
    What we have now in the South is a pile of crap compared to what we could have, what we once had.

    It’s probably unfortunate that attention-seekers latch on to Hitler.

    I figure he has many quiet, intelligent admirers, too. But of course they don’t make as much noise, and the media is not interested in associating them with Hitler.

In fact, I have been surprised to learn how many of the concepts and terms I find objectionable come straight out of Turner Diaries. That book has been described as written by Pierce when he was in a very bad mood – a way of venting his frustration. But it gets taken as a literal guidebook.

    I don’t think we have a chance until regular middle class, normal Whites come to our side. The Turner and 1488 folks tend to think the masses must be stampeded or terrified into submitting to their guiding hand. I really do think it is worthwhile to rid ourselves of that misapprehension.

    Yes, that 1488 is generally shouted by skinheads. The 14 words themselves are innocuous (at least the versions I’ve seen). The 88 comes from the eighth letter in the alphabet, “H”. So, 88 is generally understood to mean, “Heil Hitler”.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourteen_Words

    The 14 words were developed by David Lane, who was a member of The Order, as mentioned. The order was:

    The Order was accused of stealing over $4.1 million in armored car hijackings, killing two people, detonating bombs, counterfeiting money, organizing militaristic training camps and carrying out numerous other crimes with the ultimate goal of overthrowing the United States government

    They were involved in other crimes as well. So, the 14 words are fine enough as a standalone statement, but they were just camouflage for a group of thrill seekers to go on murder sprees. The combination with the numerical symbol for Heil Hitler, leaves no doubt as to the orientation of the adherents.

    The famous “14 words” are :

    There exists another slogan of 14 words, which is :

    “Because the beauty of the white Aryan women must not perish from the earth”.

    Both slogans were coined by David Lane, a member of the white seperatist organization The Order.

    Both slogans are often used by WN’s.

I have virtually no first principles in common with Greg Johnson, for example, but it’s one thing to say that he or anyone else is dead wrong and quite another to call him a liar and a traitor.

    Last but not least, sincere thanks for the thumbs up!

    Well my feeling was that there was an ocean of Reachable Whites, who stay away from sites like this, because they have been told the only people who are pro-White or criticize Jewish influence, are really warmed over Nawtzees. And it seems like we come close to proving them right sometimes.

    Of course, the NS crowd and many of the WN crowd (all several dozen of them!) don’t want to reach masses of Whites anyway. They are building very small groups right now. It’s not the proper approach to me, but oh well.

    The 1488 crowd and the Turner Diaries crowd create most of the trouble. Almost all of the really bitter stuff comes from them. It is amusing to me, as evidenced by that other monster thread, that 3 or 4 modern day Nawtzees cannot get along with each other. I have no idea how they intend to provide leadership for several hundred million White people.

    The Turner crowd is not subject to change. They will take their mentality to the grave. The same is true for most of the 1488ers. By the way, I include in the 1488 crowd even those who claim not be devotees of Hitler, yet end up “discussing” him with virtually unending praise. Note, the big conflict among them often centers around accusations of lack of loyalty to Hitler and NS Germany.

    The number of people who are Turner Folks or 1488ers is extremely small, yet they have a big voice in many pro-White groups, mainly because the vast majority of normal White people don’t want associate with what they consider racist organizations, so we get a much higher than normal number of marginal types.

    It’s a catch 22. Right now, they are often the only ones who will speak openly of being pro-White, yet they also severely limit the number of people who will associate with us. I don’t know what the solution is.

Each time the tall thin figured waved the cloth the bull charged past; at that point the figured inserted a knife.

    Beyond the kind words, I would check the ethnicity of the people forming the Cabinets under Mr. Putin.
    Words have no certain meaning. Only the actions and the consequences are certain.

    Patting the Orthodox Church on the head has two motives.
    – bringing to terms the traditional Russian imperialism and the soviet imperialism i.e. the red flag and Jesus Christ banner
    – exploiting the imperialistic and hegemonic tendencies of the same Russian Orthodox Church against all the other Orthodox Churches and especially against occupied peoples.

    Just another weapon in Putin’s arsenal (or whatever another tsar).

    To hope for some kind of Redemption from someone like Putin and his imperialism is only to prove that the Europeans haven’t learned anything from the previous two wars and are all too eager to rehash them.

    Georgia is the most recent proof.
    1. Why Georgia became a jewish puppet? Because they had enough being a Russian puppet.
    2. Why west would help the country of Stalin – as Pat Buchanan put it? Shrewdly he failed to put to a simpler question as why Russia occupied Georgia in the first place long before Stalin birth (as 1800 through lies, broken treaties, violence against the national elite, practically grinding Georgia between Russia and the Ottoman Empire).

    Yet the traditional, nationalistic and homogeneous Georgians are called nonwhite, jewish puppet, unable to defend themselves (also Buchanan). And the utterly imperialistic Putin is seen as the last hope for whites. Just because he is so much more competent than the AA obama.

    Imperialism is the death of everything European. Imperialism is what will push the brothers in opposing factions ready to kill each other. It the most distant idea from the acclaimed “live and let live”.

    Neo-imperialism and the accompanying hypocrisy/naivety is the perfect pond for jews to fish for another great war. Guess who will bleed most. Not this and that people and surely not the jews. But the entire white race driven against itself.

    Again, picking the lesser evil is still no solution. This is how Europe lost her soul.

    In Old Norse, maur is an ant. The pronunciation of the au diphthong has an i sound at the end making it more like moir – not that far off mire.
    The context in which I heard pismire was from a woman Georgia in the early 70s, while studying overseas. Once in a while, she referred to people as being a pismire. Not understanding why someone would be called an ant, I asked why she used the term. She said that it was used to describe people of little character. Your use of the word fit that nicely in that context.

    @Curmudgeon: A pismire is what it always has been: a quite respectable English word with pre-Norman roots. I still have friends who regularly use its somewhat more demotic form: piss-ant.

    Thirty-plus years ago, I was summoned to testify before a grand jury in a mugging case (I had been the target of the mugging). The prosecuting ADA told me to tell my story just as it happened when I got on the stand. Twice during my testimony the court stenographer (a black woman) interrupted to ask me to spell the words I had used—one of them was the really difficult word Afterwards, I told the ADA how sorry I was for any trouble I had caused. She jabbed a forefinger in my direction and said, “Never apologize for having a vocabulary!”

    I don’t know much about the Philip Marlowe series or Raymond Chandler.. I probably would not have picked up on Chandler’s views the way males did, anyway…..

    On a different note – the reason many Americans admire Hitler may be because he was not our leader during WWII. People probably can’t help but have hard feelings for a leader if a member of their families died in the war. My relatives on both my father and mother’s sides did not hold anything against the Germans, but they hated Pres. Roosevelt. Stalin was not high on their list, either. When a relative who served in the army and was a prisoner of war in Germany spoke about how honorably the Germans had treated him, his parents were eternally grateful to the Nazis. He also said the Russian soldiers had no honor whatsoever. He never forgot the war.

    The Jewish Race brings out the ugliness in all people. Jews are masters of the mob. Corruption seems to rule America. Since the Civil Rights Act the criminal elements in the white race and non-white races run rampant. We sometimes find ourselves in a situation defending some criminal because it was blown up as a racial issue. It doesn’t help that clergy in the pulpits use Jews as a moral standard from the Bible. Never mind that Christ opposed the Jews.

    I sometimes wonder if Nature straightens out an imbalance by clearing out the weeds. The weed-minded run around the world sowing weeds and those weeds over populate their countries until the Earth is compelled to defend herself. Hispanics and Blacks are over-populating America; Muslims and assorted weeds are over populating Europe. In the long run what these people so gleefully do now will do them in. Mob rule.

    Since this article is written by our unusually gifted Mr. Colhaze I feel I can indulge a bit….
    The other night I had a lovely dream. Somehow, I seemed to be traveling around the country although I am not quite sure how. Like a bird, perhaps. Ha
    But everywhere I went masses of human beings seemed to be milling around and suddenly, a group, an ordinary looking white group, like a flash mob, would stand up and start singing beautiful songs. But rather than singing the Christmas song “Silent Night” they were singing about “Silent Night” and about other traditional religious music. These small choir groups were everywhere across America and would appear suddenly as if nothing could stop them because no one could distinguish them from anybody else and did not know what they were going to do until they were doing it. (Well, you know how dreams are, but I loved it.)

    When I awoke those lovely sounds were in my head and I had a wonderful feeling of well-being.

    One of the nice things about being an early arrival at another noteworthy Michael Colhaze article is not having to read 600-plus comments debating whether anyone can be called a true WN if he hasn’t taken a position vis-à-vis Raymond Chandler’s lamentable silence on the Holohoax.

    On a slightly more serious note, however, Mr. Colhaze demonstrates yet again the profundity of the European Christian outlook that has disappeared almost entirely from the public discourse of the West—and is in grave danger of disappearing from what little remains of its private discourse and life, too. I mean, of course, an outlook embodying the presence of a moral and religious foundation so deep and firm that one need not waste life’s precious moments endlessly discussing and debating the moral consequences of this or that event, individual, book, or work of art. The meaning of almost all things—aka the Big Picture—is so pellucidly clear that even the simplest of men (i.e., you, me, and everyone else in all aspects of daily living save only for that virtual handful of aspects in which anyone has true knowledge or awareness) can profit from the gold and discard the dross without a decade’s worth of specialized study.

    Oh come on. Sure, he’s no Einstein, or Feynman, or Witten, but Chandrasekhar is far from obscure in physics. I suppose particularly because he chose such a glamorous field; every schoolboy has heard about the Chandrasekhar limit, above which the electron degeneracy pressure is insufficient to hold a white dwarf against gravitational collapse into a black hole. This calculation won him the 1983 Nobel Prize in Physics. That was the first, and most significant, thing he contributed to physics; subsequently he appears to have added something or other to the theory of magnetohydrodynamics.

    From Michael Colhaze web-site: Part 2
    Here we touch lightly upon a clue to the mystery that is the White Race. Namely our
    boundless appreciation of Beauty! The incomparable gift to be intensely moved by a
    blazing sunrise, a meadow resplendent with dandelions, a nightingale’s song, a fleeting
    smile of the beloved. In other words, an inimitable genetic quirk that evolved with the
    passing ages into the highest and most harmonious artistic expression possible, be it in a
    poem, a statue, a painting, a building, a symphony, a philosophical treatise or just an
    article of daily use. Why it was given only to our tribe in such exorbitant measure is a
    question the Good Lord alone can answer.

    Your essay about Chandler moved me to look you up and came across your web-site I had never visited before.
