Addictions:  An Example of the Interplay of the Public and Private

Very often, the opposite of a good thing to do is also a good thing to do.   Loving is a good thing to do, obviously.  But despite what whites are admonished to condemn and repress in themselves (by people who don’t mean well by them), loving’s opposite, hating, is also a good thing to do.   Some things — injustice, abuse, attacks against us and those we care about — deserve our hating them and acting accordingly.

There is a Pete Seeger song from the 1950s called “Turn! Turn! Turn!” that gets at this value-of-opposites idea.

To everything
There is a season
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

Almost exclusively, white racial discourse has focused on public concerns: white identity and culture, historical and current realities, philosophical and ideological concepts, and proposals and strategies for collective action.  And that’s all well and good, keep it going.   But the argument here is that at the same time we’re doing that, let’s give attention to the opposite of a public focus: let’s look at things from a private, or personal or individual, frame of reference; and take note of the interplay of the public and private, how each affects the other.

The private concern I shine a light on here is addiction.  Not addiction as a problem for the society and culture as a whole — though it is good to look at it from that angle — but rather as a problem for individual people: for him and her and you and me.  

I define addiction broadly to include any pattern of behavior, any habit or pre-occupation, that gets out of hand, that controls you more than you control it, that becomes a compulsion, an urge, and that, on balance, brings you down.  I’m not getting into the physiological aspects of addiction with this, brain chemistry, any of that.

Note the term “on balance” in the definition of addiction — on balance it brings you down.   That underscores that addictions aren’t all bad.  Every addiction — and this is what makes addictions particularly tough to deal with — works, it pays off.   If it didn’t pay off, people wouldn’t do it a second time.  You may be the biggest bleary-eyed inebriate in town, but you sure felt good for a while last night.  Life was worth living last night.  You were on top of it last night.  But now it’s the next morning and you feel like hell and you remember what you said to your wife last night — well, actually you hit her, yes you did.  You’re going to have to live with the hangover, and your self-disdain and guilt, for the rest of the day.  The fate of the West wasn’t on your mind last night and it’s not going to be on your mind today either.

I offer that the way out of an addiction is essentially the same no matter what form the addiction takes.  Whether you are drinking a fifth a day or hanging out with porn for hours on end, the path you need to take to get yourself out of the fix you are in is the same.  I’ll talk about that path at the end of this writing

I’ll list and briefly discuss seven addictions.  Two of them I’ve had in a major way and a third just a bit, so I can speak from experience about three of these seven.  The other four I’m just going by what I’ve observed and read.

I assert that these seven addictions relate to the stated focus of this publication, “White Identity, Interests, and Culture.”  White identity, interests, and culture are strongly affected by the health, and thus efficacy, of individual white people.  The whole is as good as its component parts.  And keeping in mind the value-of-opposites idea, these seven addictions relate to the quality of individual lives, yours and mine.   Our race matters, but so do we.  It doesn’t have to be one or the other that’s the priority — the welfare of the race or our own welfare.  They can both be priorities, and they can be priorities in a way that each priority serves the other, in a way that they are mutually complementary commitments.

While the focus here is on white people, these considerations apply to all people, of every race.  Our commitment to our own race and ourselves and those close to us need not — should not — preclude wishing every group and every human being on this planet well.

Now to the seven addictions.  Critique, accept, reject, modify, improve upon, this list.

Drugs.  Big news currently is that opioid use among white people has risen dramatically in recent years.  It particularly breaks my heart to see kids, so new to the world, so suggestible, so precious, fall into that hole.  Drugs of any kind used to alter consciousness — heroin, fentanyl, painkillers, marijuana, cocaine, whatever it is — none of it is worth the price you pay for the transitory pleasure and relief you achieve.   If you put your mind to it, and it’s not all that hard, you can find other, better, ways to get pleasure and relief: among the possibilities, yoga, meditation, a creative outlet like music, painting, writing, or woodworking, and connection with nature.

This past year, I confronted my first drug issue ever.  I got hooked on medication prescribed by a doctor for an occasional insomnia problem I was having.  The pills worked one night, but the problem was even worse the next night.  So it was more pills, which made the issue still worse, and then increased dosages, and then a stiff drink added to the before-bed hit.   As the weeks went by, I began to notice negative changes in my outlook and functioning.

I’ve managed to get off the pills and their alcohol booster — alcohol was never the problem, it was the pills.  It took resolve.  I’d be up at 1:00 a.m. with what was like a caffeine buzz, I’d had no caffeine, my mind chattering. “Hey, just tonight, one last time, and then never again, go ahead, take the pills, it’ll be fine, one last time, do it.”  I’m proud of myself for answering back, “No, I’m not doing it one last time.  I’m done with that.”  Things are so much better now, in both the personal and public dimensions of my life.

Alcohol.  My nephew, a physician, cut up cadavers as part of his medical studies.   He told me you can see the brain damage in alcoholics. It’s obvious, nothing subtle about it.  We don’t talk enough about what alcohol does to the brain.  Read about the writer Ernest Hemingway sometime.

I’m not big on negative self-labeling — “I’m an alcoholic.”  I’d prefer people seeing themselves as someone who currently drinks too much.  They aren’t a drinking problem; they have a drinking problem.   And when they stop drinking to excess, they won’t have a drinking problem anymore.

Excessive alcohol use gets in the way of everything, including contributing to the race.  And quite simply, throwing up on the sidewalk doesn’t represent the race well.

Poor nutrition and obesity.  In my work as an educator, I spent a lot of time with low income white kids and their families.  I was struck by how poorly so many of them ate, and how overweight so many of the kids were even at their very young ages.  They looked pasty, dulled.

I vividly remember my own issues with food.  There I was, fifty pounds heavier than I am now, at the McDonald’s counter ordering my usual four hamburgers and three orders of French fries (yes) and a large Coke.  I’d gobble and wash that down — eating with my hands, no silverware, and the paper cup were metaphors for my pathetic existence at that moment — and to top it off, engulf a Snickers bar, make that two Snickers bars.  Bloated and dopey, I’d fall into bed, thud, to sleep like I was dead, nowhere near bedtime, the sun coming through the window.  There’d I’d be at work or a social occasion, my stomach spilling over the pants I could barely manage to button, my hair combed over my forehead because I thought it hid my moon face, depressed, defeated, feeling vulnerable, smiling and chattering on as if nothing was wrong and just wanting to go home and eat.   Contribute to the race?   I was too occupied with pounding down donuts for that.

The popular culture.  I’ve just completed a new biography of Jann Wenner, whose Rolling Stone magazine I read faithfully during its heyday in the 1970s when I was young (the book, Sticky Fingers by Joe Hagen, Knopf, 2017).  Wenner (originally Weiner) was a central figure in creating generational storylines back then through his biweekly magazine, which glorified drugs and promoted rock music, celebrity worship, left-wing ideas, and sexual liberation.  Though Rolling Stone was a distinctly white magazine, it genuflected to blacks.  As I was reading the Wenner biography, it hit me that I uncritically bought into the Rolling Stone line of bullshit.  Damn.

Since I was a kid, I can’t imagine anyone being more caught up with, ensnared by, conditioned by, the popular culture than I was. All the television shows, all the hit records, all the big Hollywood movies.  From its debut in 1975, I never missed a “Saturday Night Live” and what I now realize was its relentless agitprop.  No surprise, the Wenner book said that he and SNL big boss Lorne Michaels (nee Lipowitz), were buddies.  All the great books I didn’t read, all the great films I didn’t see, all the enlightening and empowering facts and ideas that could have gotten into my head that didn’t, because I was caught up with the tantalizing rubbish that cultural manipulators like Wenner and Michaels dangled in front of me.   I’ll never get that time back, sad.

Don’t I know, you can get caught up with the popular culture to the point that it qualifies as an addiction.  Like any addiction, you want more and more and more of it — what’s the next album to buy, what’s new on HBO, how’s George Clooney doing, what’s on his mind these days.

Bringing it around to the cause of white people, the point has been made well in this publication — check out the writings by Edmund Connelly in the Author Archives — that the popular culture is no friend of white people.

I’ve jettisoned the popular culture from my life, or just about — it’s so ubiquitous that it’s all but impossible to clean it out altogether.   I was deep in mid-life before I did it, and I regret taking so long to do it, but I didn’t know to do it before then.  Life’s so much better now — it’s characterized by quality, not pap, and my mind isn’t being poisoned.  I’m not being distracted from my life now (the pop culture gets you attending to others’ lives, while they don’t know you exist).  And I’m better for myself and those in my life and I’m better for the world, including for my race.

Social media.   In my work teaching college students, it hit me how tethered they are to social media — every waking minute, checking their phone, texting, Tweeting, Facebook, Instagram, and I’m sure other things I don’t know about.  I’d see students walking the campus hovered over their phones and think, these people are addicts and don’t know it.

To be sure, social media has its upsides, including connecting people with one another, a way to get one’s voice heard, and as a vehicle for organizing activities.   And that counts for something, don’t get me wrong, including furthering the cause of whites.  But what people don’t take into account enough are social media’s downsides.  Social media foster a disconnect with concrete reality (social media addicts are never completely in the room, never totally present, in this place, now).  Social media plug them into the popular culture and its imperatives; encourage a “now” time orientation (both the past and the future become beside the point); foster a 140-characters-off-the-top-of-your-head superficiality (the new 280 will be no better); promote group think and conformity to currently entrenched orthodoxies; perpetuate immaturity; and take up inordinate amounts of time and energy that could be better spent.  None of that supports the cause of white people, or being truly alive.

I’ve got a thirteen-year-old daughter, and as a parent I’m finding my biggest concern with her is her connection with social media.   She’s starting to hang out with her phone, and I’ve got a problem with that.  I’ve shared with her what I think, said it can go on in the living room only (no holing up in the bedroom with it), and put limits on her usage (she seems OK with all of that).  The last time we were at the movies, she was checking her messages on the sly, and during lunch afterwards she excused herself a couple of times to “take a little walk” (I couldn’t bring myself to say anything).  I’m very concerned about turning my young daughter over to pied piper Mark Zuckerberg and his Facebook enticement.  Maybe I’m missing the point and coming down too hard on this.  But I do experience it as a major issue, that’s for sure.

Pornography.   I’m talking about it here from a male perspective; I don’t know what, if any, problem females have with it.  Like all addictions, pornography has its payoffs — sex on demand, whatever kind you want, no threat of rejection, a good time for a while.   But it comes (no pun intended) at a big cost: including fatigue, depression, self-disdain, negativity (everything looks dark, bad, it’s hopeless, there’s nothing good to do), inertia, fear of being found out, erectile dysfunction, social anxiety, reclusiveness, and fantasy becoming preferable to reality.  It’s tough to transform the race with a cadre of wankers.

Gaming.  I’ve never played a video game.  I’m told there are two categories of games: those played by a single player, and online multiple player games.  I read that the online games can be especially addictive because they don’t have an end and over time you get immersed in them more and more deeply.  People caught up with a video game can come to invest themselves in an online world and identity at the expense of engagement with concrete reality.  Both kinds of games can lead to pre-occupation with the games and restlessness and irritability that is only relieved by playing more games.  And, needless to say, they foster isolating oneself.

I understand some online gamers have picked up on the alt-right movement, which is good.  From this long range, however, it seems unlikely that people who spend inordinate amounts of time in their bedrooms in front of computer screens playing fantasy games are going to contribute all that much to advancing the race.

That’s the seven addictions.  What do you think, both for the race as a whole and for individual members of the race?  Any others you think ought to be added to the list — online gambling perhaps?  Where can you take this topic that will be helpful?

This discussion has been about dealing with self-abuse, and that’s crucially important.  What it ultimately needs to be about, however, is becoming optimally fit — healthy, proudly erect, graceful, alert, vibrantly alive.  That gets us into nutrition, physicality, movement and exercise, mental clarity and strength, and basic attitude toward life — topics beyond the scope of this writing.   We need to do more than cure the instrument (our mind and body), we need to hone the instrument.

If you personally have any of these addictions, you would do well by yourself and for the people in your life and your race to give everything you have to expelling it from your life.  How do you go about doing that?  My suggestions:

  • Take stock.  What’s the addiction getting you — it’s getting you something — and what’s it costing you?
  • Imagine what it will be like without this addiction.  Picture that in your mind.  Experience being that way, feeling like that, being responded to by others and yourself (we are an audience to ourselves) when you’re like that.
  • Make a Decision to rid yourself of this addiction.   I put a capital letter on “Decision” to make it stand out as special.  Because a Decision is more than a mere goal or choice or commitment.  A Decision involves taking responsibility for getting something accomplished — this is no joke, you’re doing it, period.   Others can help, programs can help, but still, this is your job, nobody else’s, the buck stops with you.

I believe all of us have the capability of making a Decision.  We can shift ourselves into that posture, that stance, that bearing.  A Decision pervades our body; we can feel it from head to toe.   Making a Decision is a total, organic, shift in our being; it’s more than just a good idea in our head.   Our experience of ourselves is different now than before.  A Decision is no less than who we are.  We’re new.

  • Create an action plan.  As far as you can see at this point, and being as specific as you can, what’s the best way to go about getting the addiction out of your life?   Write that down.
  • Go to work.  Don’t wait until Monday — start now.  What you do can be big or small, but do something.
  • Monitor, adjust, and re-affirm.   Keep track of how it’s going for you.  Write in a journal, take stock when you walk the dog, reflect just before you go to bed — whatever you feel comfortable doing.  Note where it’s gone well — even in the smallest way — and celebrate that, praise yourself for that accomplishment, and note what you need to change.  Put that image in your mind of what it will be like when you are free of this addiction; live in that imagined way for a time.  Re-affirm your Decision — get your total being, mind and body, firmly in that place.

Are you going to be successful expelling your addiction from your life, from your being?   My experience over the course of a long life is that people almost always accomplish what they truly Decide to get done.  And that even when they don’t succeed, they’re better off than if they hadn’t taken on the task.

The World War II-era French writer Albert Camus wrote about the Greek myth of Sisyphus.  Over and over, Sisyphus rolled a large boulder toward the top of a mountain only to have the boulder fall back down the mountain.   He never got the boulder to the top, he didn’t succeed.  But as Camus put it, “The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart.  One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

The Sisyphus myth can be viewed as a metaphor for our basic, call it existential, challenge as human beings: to get in the best shape we can and roll our particular boulder — we don’t all have the same boulder — up the mountain.   Indeed, we may never get our boulder to the top.  We aren’t all-powerful.  Circumstances can be bigger than we are.  Sometimes there are few who will help us, and sometimes no one will help us.  But still, we can keep pushing our boulder — part of which might be representing and serving our race well — and when it rolls back down, push it again, and again, and again and again and again, for as long as we possibly can.

Camus had it right — even if we never get our boulder to the top of the mountain, diligently trying to get it there will make us happy.  Now very near the end, I can attest to that from personal experience.   I’m happy.

    Glad to see some academics address the issue of the damaging facets of social media… We need take note. One of my own nephews set a rule for his teenage daughter that she and all her friends, upon gatherings at his house, must place their cell phones (I-Phones) in a basket at the front entrance before admission. The same for their pool parties. It is an effective measure, and promotes conversational skills for them (besides emphasizing the harmful addiction to electronic social media).

    RE: junk food, obesity, and the popular culture.

    For my age I’m reasonably fit and trim (have not always been that way). My wife (she’s always been fit) and I go to the local Planet Fitness gym, probably 5 days a week. Nothing major, only toning up. It’s a cheap deal. About twelve dollars a month.

    Most folks there (the majority are white women) are fat and out of shape. I guess that’s what you’d expect at a place like PF. Many, even middle-aged women, sport multiple tattoos. Did they get them when they were young? I guess they never heard the saying, “You don’t put a bumper sticker on a Ferrari.”

    I want to give these people credit for doing something, however they probably don’t realize that exercise alone is not going to do it; rather a total lifestyle/diet change is required. I’m afraid most are unwilling to do what is necessary.

    The place is loaded with televisions, many featuring “music videos.” Music videos are essentially white people attempting to act black. Teenage angst, and all the rest. Probably a Jew is behind it, financing the thing. One featured an old white lady at her 50-year high school reunion. As the story went, grandma ran into an old black guy classmate whom she was “always in love with,” and so after all these years they finally hooked up. Why they didn’t make grandma a lesbian is something I’ll never quite understand.

    Honestly, there is nothing more stupid, vapid and degenerate, or anti-culture than a narcissistic music video. With the possible exception of CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News. One of the networks was plugging the Megyn Kelley Show, a couple of weeks ago. What choice is there? Everyone watches something. Either that, or they have something plugged into their ear. I’m guessing these folks have tuned out, and are instead listening to Heidegger’s 1940s lectures on Nietzsche.

      While many men who feel oppressed by a feminizing culture get tattoos in attempt to feel more masculine, I have heard from numerous women that they find the tattooing process to be oddly pleasurable if not addicting in and of itself. Furthermore the first thing young people do when they get a new tattoo is post pictures on social media.

      Next thing you know these women are covered with hideous tattoos. I have run across numerous women who have ruined their looks with tattoos. I just can’t imagine being sexually intimate with a woman with tattoos across her breasts for example.

      There have been numerous articles on role Jews have played in promoting tattooing for example:

        Tattoos are also very expensive. A fancy one can cost $700. I know an attractive young woman who was telling me about her future plans. And this girl was not rich. Tattoos were trendy among the trust-fund hipsters for a while as a means of signaling nonconformity and dangerous outsider status but the idea filtered down to the white lower class. Perhaps tattoos gives them a much needed sense of individuality. The association with rebelliousness is almost played out, since the establishment of today is proud to condemn the older establishment that saw tattoos as disreputable.

        Health clubs are absolutely intolerable as well – every time I exercise with a trainer and can’t put the headphones in, LA Fitness subjects me to retarded negro/mystery meat ‘rappers’ going on and on about how much they love big butts, how rich they supposedly are, and their proficiency at the mechanical actions of sexual coitus.

    Very interesting topic that seems to be taboo in our “new” social norm. What is hate speech? Or is it really hate thought that they want to control? Is it thought in general that they wish to control? Lenin most certainly wanted to control speech and thought and I suppose Marx desired the same to produce their socially “just” society and unleash it on the rest of the world. It only cost 100 million lives, and still counting to this very day.

    • John Walton
      John Walton says:

      Hate speech is seldom spoken in hate and rarely advocates hate. The term is pure PR. Obviously the goal is to expand the condemnation of primitive bigotry against helpless minorities to serve as a blanket condemnation or all opposition to the anti-white, multiculturalist agenda, meanwhile legitimizing the notion of censorship and punishment of opposing views.

    Living underinsured is a kind of addiction that, unfortunately, doesn’t show up as a net negative until you may not be able to recover from it. What I mean by “living underinsured” is replacement reproduction dependence on brittle infrastructure, both physical and social. The disastrous results are now manifest in the replacement of Euroman as the Western civilization has been turned against replacement reproduction by Euroman, and importation of replacement populations.

    This kind of addiction may be the hardest of all to break.

    Weaver says:

    Wonderful essay.

    Being sedentary is said to be the new smoking. This can be alleviated with standing desks and by taking breaks. Often when using a standing desk, one alternates positions. Standing too long can also be an issue. When sitting, one wants to recline a bit. Tablet computers are nice.

    My diet consists now of lentils, wild & brown rice, chia seeds (they don’t mix well with the rice, but that’s how I eat them currently), sweet potato, kale and other sources of Vitamin K like broccoli, kiwi fruit, citrus juice, fish, eggs, protein powder, avocado, sunflower seeds, almonds, sometimes oats in muesli. And occasionally something junk foodish or desert-like. On the whole, that works well for me. I generally lose weight when I keep to the diet, gain a couple pounds when I eat junk.

    Rather than aiming for a target weight, a person should perhaps aim to have a flat stomach, which is probably below one’s “target weight”.

    Avoiding processed carbs and eating plenty of meat/protein is very good.

    I’ve struggled in the past with low energy due to diet. I wouldn’t eat enough protein, because I’m a picky eater. But, that’s no longer a problem for me. I fear in the past I was unintentionally anorexic, just because I wouldn’t bother to eat every meal. I’m now careful to consume plenty of protein and daily vitamins.

      My understanding is that, yes, nicotine is indeed addictive, but not terribly harmful in itself. The danger in smoking is the constant inhalation of smoke — and all the chemicals the manufacturers put into ciggies — into the lungs. To this day, cigarette makers aren’t required to reveal their content. It’s well-known that formaldehyde is one ingredient, and I read recently that sugar is used in many tobacco formulations!

    What would be interesting would be a meta analysis of the birth of so many of societies addiction ills and the key role that Jews with their subversive nature in played in their inception.

    For example

    I remember the scandal during the Carter Administration when his drug czar Peter Bourne, (I believe was Jewish and from a family of well connected British Jews.) was alleged to have used both marijuana and cocaine and improperly written prescriptions for Quaaludes. Bourne was instrumental in the mass media attempts in the late seventies to downplay the very addictive nature of cocaine and popularize its use and begin the movement towards the legalization of marijuana.

    The Alt-Right to its credit has recognized that weaponized internet porn is a huge problem especially for the young. It is hopeful that the movement AGAINST internet porn is growing phenomena because there is growing mass recognition of just how harmful it is. President Trump needs to speak out.

      “We see many scenarios where maybe photos or videos were taken consensually at one point, but there was not any sort of consent to send the images or videos more broadly. One in five Australian women aged 18-45 and one in four Indigenous Australians are victims of that abuse,” says e-Safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this article. I’m probably around Griffin’s age and passed through many of the same popular culture epochs that he discussed in the article. But I never got completely taken in by the degeneracy of American culture starting from the late 60s onward. Nah, it wasn’t that I never got taken in because of some superb strength of will or character on my part. I never got completely hoodwinked by this culture’s degeneracy simply because of my early Catholic schooling and upbringing – which was basically an exercise in a moral dialectic that immunized me from a total surrender to everything fleshy, fashionable, and out of bounds with Nature’s balance. Many on the Alt-Right dismiss old-time Christianity as a psychotic anachronism but it did much to guide human behavior along a path that channeled our natural instincts into constructive evolutionary paradigms. Hedonism, of either a Right or Left variant, is a fool’s game and ultimately biologically destructive.

          Agricultural scientists, in all seriousness, have established that cows give more milk when listening to Mozart. Can we ever hope to aspire to that bovine standard: to get out from under their tutelage.

      And who, at least in passing, would fail to mention the version of “Turn, Turn, Turn” performed by Roger McGuinn’s The Byrds, whose original four-minute musical production, as I read those familiar words, I can still hear clearly now nearly a half a century later, not to mention hundreds of playbacks!

      Then, of course, we arrive at “8 Miles High” and thus return to the subject at hand — I prefer the extended versions of the latter piece!

      In my opinion, “addiction” results directly from failure to teach about Mind and its proper use (cf. Yogi Bhajan’s series of lectures The Mind). You were given a mind, the great yogi declared, you were not given to the mind. I think that this intentionally conveyed ignorance — ignoring is an intentional (if eventually subconscious) active process, after all — about Mind. Subtract Mind from your conceptual framework of “being”, or take Mind for granted, and you have erected a wall between your Self and who you think you are. Addictions follow as night follows day as you seek to recover connection to who you really are, a connection you think you have lost and haven’t, for you can’t really lose your Self at all.

    Young white men and women should get married early and start having babies. Catholic couples use to stay married for life. It’s more fun than an I-phone. They should milk every nickel they can out of the government in social benefits. White men use to work hard Monday to Friday then live it up on weekends. I don’t see the harm. Women would go to the family doctor for diet pills to shed a few pounds and clean the house. They looked good, their houses looked good. What wrecks your health and makes you put on pounds is stress and uncertainty. Only government workers are guaranteed jobs for life and pensions.

      There’s no continuous stress and uncertainty like that of living isolated in a secular society that practices novelty . Thus there’s no remedy like that of living in a sacred–at least, sacerdotal–society, which Catholic life sometimes some places is. When you believe every act, choice, sensation, and thought ultimately converges on God, your lever of will, so to speak, is very long. And organizing time into sacred and profane days generates energy,

    I had a major book addiction. I was driving across six states, gripped in a mania to purchase new books, both to sell and for my private collection. I could be seen scanning bar codes in a fevered state. I purchased far more books than I could ever read. Indeed I have given many away since the mania has past. I warn you: stay well away from the booksellers!

    Unrelated but relevant. Walked by the office of a Jewish physics professor today. He is the guy who got A in the class because he did well in the final. He had two interesting things in his door. One handwritten sheet read “Dump Trump, Putin’s puppet, Duke’s dummy.” The other was that cute quote about the perfection of democracy, that ends up with us the rabble getting our heart’s desire and getting a president like Trump, the Mencken quote.

    Thinking about it now. This Jewish professor has a Jewish student. When this Jewish student was my student, she highly despised me, just like this, without me doing anything at all to her. She got A.

      Trump and Putin are both Jewish-pawns.

      Dr. David Duke is hated by organized Jewry not that much as a former member of anti-Black KKK – but due to his participation at Tehran’s International Holocaust Conference in 2006.

      Many White folks don’t know that KKK too has Jew handlers.

      On November 20, 2016, leading Swedish newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” published a cartoon (below) showing Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu sitting in carriage carried by Zionist Jews, Christians, and KKK … saying Antligen (Finally).

      Swedish Jew writer Rebecca Weidmo Uvell sent a tweet to the paper account asking, “how can you publish clearly antisemitic propaganda? Jews carrying Trump together with KKK? Please explain.” According to Jewish newspaper, The Local, the account replied: “Netanyahu has celebrated Trump’s victory despite Trump’s rhetoric and the enthusiastic support he received in the USA from the White racists.”

      The Dagens Nyheter editor-in-chief Peter Volodarski (Jewish), however said that the cartoon was not antisemitic because it attacked the Zionist regime and not the Jews.

          G T, take it a little slower here with comments like this. You just faced similar assessments here. Differing opinions and little-known facts, so long as they are not grasped out of the clear blue, are thought-provoking and therefore useful. Simple.

          The 2006 photo of Ahmadinejad shaking hands with one of the delegation of NY, Jerusalem-created anti-Zionist Jews [ Neturei Karta ] and elsewhere, remains memorable; but that’s eleven years ago.

          Duke is hated and broadly maligned because of his all-encompassing knowledge of the problem, his customary pleasant conversational tone while sharing his knowledge and opinion and most of all, for not spewing hate; indeed allowing others to follow their own call: leaving {{{ their }}} mendacious rote characterization of the typical white supremacist embarrassingly incomplete.

          All of us here are familiar with both proven and merely likely Controlled Opposition. Someone accused Zundel of that but was unable, upon examination, to further his assumption. The same applies to Hitler, who is known to have been financially supported by two Berlin Jewish bankers [ Irving; Colombia U doc. ]; as well as by Wall Street remittances to the Cologne-domiciled Stein Bank. Why did he and Eva refuse to flee in the small plane purposefully landed minutes away by that daring, devil-may-care ” FEMALE ” test-pilot Hanna Reitsch ?

          If Putin were a Jew-puppet [ Rehmat ] would it be essential, even advisable for him to address their Moscow conference, in their own venue, reminding them, that they represented around 85 % of the Bolshevik Regime ?

          Speaking for myself, I will continue breathing, so long as I can filter other’s assertions, facts and interpretations/opinions through my own finely-meshed filter.

          “…it seems futile to breathe…”

          Yes you should stop. It would curtail your addiction to criticism of others who’ve done you no harm.

    “…Drugs…
    …Alcohol…
    …Poor nutrition and obesity…
    …The popular culture…
    …Social media…
    …Pornography…
    …Gaming….

    …That’s the seven addictions.

    What do you think, both for the race as a whole and for individual members of the race?

    Any others you think ought to be added to the list — online gambling perhaps?

    Where can you take this topic that will be helpful?…”

    At the root of the problems that the White [less so in the other, “…lesser…”] Race[s] as a whole face[s] is…; FEAR !

    Fear of Death.
    Fear of confronting “…today’s reality…” as the Jew Constructed, Suicidal Paradigm that it is.
    Fear of deprivation and discomfort.
    Fear of “…ostracize-ation…”, of not being an accepted member of [Jew Inverted] society as defined by, for example, the Facebook, Jew Delineated, Censored, Anti-Freedom Domestication Paradigm that it is.
    Fear of a good blood and knuckles fight. and…,
    Fear of approaching and/or even sweeping a woman off her feet.

    There are probably more, but not being a particularly fearful person myself, I am probably out of touch with many “…popular fears…”.

    FEARS are, IMO, the No. 1 reason that people become addicted to gross, physical both material and phenomenon…”

    In order to conquer fear, one must train oneself in the path that leads to the “…Confrontation of One’s own Death and the Life that Ensues Thereafter….”

    That means one will need to conquer the addiction to: Breathing.
    Systolic and Diastolic Heart Beat.
    Excess in all its various forms…, ranging all the way from thoughts to actions and any consumptive impulse in between.

    Once Death has been Confronted only then can Life Truly Begin and be called Fearless and Free of Addiction.
    Moreover, IMO, after the above, the Spirit of Christ and His Transformative Powers of Forgiveness, Love, Patience, Forbearance, and the many other characteristics associated with Christ
    [as opposed to the Institutionalized and Bastardized (read: Talmud-ified) “…religions of the day…”]
    become much easier to attain.

    IMO, the Global Paradigm that lead to the Micro-Miracle that Hitler was able to obtain once he had rid Germany of the bulk of its most glaringly obvious Jewish Detractors,
    will take place on a Global Level once the Jew has been Contained and the Christian Paradigm becomes the Norm.
