After Brussels:
The Trap of Counter-Jihad

brussels_explosion_91,266 words

The religion of peace strikes again. At the risk of being immodest, I can predict what happens next. After all, these terror attacks seem to follow a basic formula:

Step 1: Attack happens. World leaders are “shocked” that such a thing could happen. Who would have thought bringing in people who follow a religion founded by a warlord and pedophile would lash out in such a way against us? We’ve been so tolerant! To them! And it’s not as if these things happen on a regular basis . . . 

Step 2: The media assures us that these attacks have nothing to do with Islam and denounces the terrorists, but not as militantly as they denounce us and every other person who makes the connection that Islamic terrorism might indeed have something to do with Islam. After all, suicide bombings are bad, but a common-sense immigration policy would lead to another holocaust! They go on to claim that the terrorists are attacking our “values” (as opposed to us) and that the biggest victim of Islamic terrorism are Muslims themselves (because some people on the street might give them weird looks) and that what we need to do is let in more refugees, who just happen to be Muslim. After all, if we implement a common-sense immigration policy, then Muslims will feel alienated and the terrorists will win.

Step 3: The media insistently show model Muslim citizens, well dressed and assimilated, denouncing what happened. They also make positive role models of dhimmis making politically correct yet ultimately worthless gestures towards our Muslim “fellow citizens.” These people are given a metaphorical pat on the head as they cash in on the anti-European Zeitgeist.

Step 4: While the far-Right might make some gains, things ultimately go back to normal as a jittery public goes back to what is really important, e.g. paying attention to which celebrity came out as gay/got a sex change, football, working eight hours in a cubicle, etc. A few bright individuals, however, become aware of the fact that Europe is in an existential civilizational struggle, one in which we aren’t exactly winning.

This basically sums up every attack since 9/11. And of course, while the uncritical mind accepts the MSM’s bogus explanation of events, we on the Alt-Right aren’t fooled and easily see through their lies. Anyone can read the Koran for themselves and see what it really says in regards to waging war against the unbelievers. Furthermore, we know that closing our borders to Muslims will not magically result in a “victory” for the Islamic State. In fact, this claim that “the terrorists win if we turn on our Muslim brothers!” might just be the most annoying and idiotic argument that leftists make. After all, if that were true then France, which has suffered multiple serious terrorist attacks and also contains within its borders no-go zones that even police won’t enter, is winning against ISIS, while Slovakia (which has vowed to refuse entry to any Muslim migrants and has not had any Islamic terrorist attacks on its soil) has already lost.

However, when leftists say that we lose by restricting or even banning third-world immigration into our countries, they are being ideologically consistent. After all, if all featherless bipeds are equal and if anyone can become, for example, a Swede, then all of the world’s seven billion inhabitants are potential Swedes. As such, to ban anyone would be a transgression against a fellow human being and a potential Swede. The women, children, and (mostly) men we see swarming across the border may as well be our brothers, our cousins, our neighbors, or our friends. In this context, borders exist merely as a safety precaution to ensure that the process of enrichment doesn’t get too chaotic. They are necessary only to ensure that we become minorities in our own countries in an orderly and (relatively) civilized manner. You don’t want to boil that frog too quickly. Sure, multiculturalism will lead to otherwise unnecessary terrorist attacks, assaults, rapes, and murders, but it’s a small price to pay to help our fellow human beings and a necessary sacrifice to the god of Equality!

Unfortunately, as Professor Kevin MacDonald has pointed out, this is likely a part of our nature. Europeans, especially our intellectuals, tend to see morality in universalist terms, and humanity as an abstract and fluid concept. For them, our in-group is not bound by DNA, religion, culture, language, or anything solid, but rather by a series of abstract values based on individualism and equality. Thus it is difficult to speak to our fellow Europeans about the nature of racial and cultural inequality, or that we must prioritize our own survival over that of these third-world immigrants with whom we have little in common, genetically or otherwise.

Nonetheless, in these coming times it is undeniable that faced with a powerful enemy that has its own culture and civilization, our people (excluding those who are actively betraying us to our declared enemies) will look for something to stop it. As more and more people become red-pilled by reality, it will be increasingly difficult to hide behind the system of abstract values (personal freedom, free markets, tolerance, yada, yada . . .) that libertarians, counter-Jihadists, and others promote as being the pillars of our civilization. The fact of the matter is that without Europeans, there is no Europe. And the more non-Europeans enter European countries, the more obvious that will become.

It is inevitable that in the wake of Islamic terrorist attacks many will flock to the counter-Jihad movement. However, this is a false friend. As the name implies, the counter-Jihad movement is a movement of negative identity. Instead of focusing on who we are as Europeans, the counter-Jihadists (à la Robert Spencer, Tommy Robinson, etc.) will only assert who we are not, that is, radical Islamists. And if they do just so happen to mention who we are, they will use essentially the same kind of language that our elites used to get us into this mess: That the West is nothing but a conglomeration of values and principles. Such reasoning will lead to the same problem that we see ourselves in today, as it does nothing to stop the hordes of non-Muslim Blacks, Arabs, Mexicans, or even moderate Muslims from entering our countries and turning them into something unrecognizable.

So what do we do? We must assert our own identity as Europeans. Instead of focusing on who we are not, we must focus on who we are and take pride in that. Instead of merely opposing immigration of the other, we need to assert our own identity. Identitarians and Nationalists can do this in many ways. We can organize music festivals that exhibit our nations’ traditional songs and dance. We can promote the glorious history of our nations by organizing lectures that counter leftists’ anti-national propaganda. We can arrange fitness and martial arts classes that promote strength and discipline. We can organize volunteer programs to help members specifically of our tribe as opposed to fresh-off-the-boat foreigners. Or, in countries where culinary imperialism has been particularly severe, we can arrange food festivals displaying the tastes of our land.

The possibilities are endless. As far as I am aware, most (if not all) of the things I mentioned are already done by various nationalist groups all over Europe and the world. These types of actions help turn our movement into a real community, a counter-community if you will. Don’t limit yourself: Protest against the invasion, but not without providing your folk with a strong positive alternative. Use your imagination, stand up for your people and help your fellow Europeans.

    I think you are conflating moral universalism and racial differences wrongly here. Up until very recently, even during the days of the Carry On films there was a healthy racial sense of who was and wasn’t white, European, British and so on, alongside a universalist Christian morality or secular version of it. The denial of race and the tabula rasa egalitarianism is relatively recent. Historically – and this is my inference – I imagine that whites saw racial differences as something to be overcome through a ‘civilising crusade’, missionary work and so on. Kipling satirised this in ‘white mans burden.’ Holding that one morality is universally true and applicable is not incompatible with racial awareness, it is just that liberal morality defines noticing race as sinful.

    I thought this was very interesting and promising:

    Over the Easter family gathering a discussion began with my family on the issue of the invasion of Europe and White Genocide.

    I did not initiate, or mention White Genocide. But the terms came up with guests and Mantra lines were being quoted. I said nothing. My father, who is constant ‘appeaser’, used the Mantra line ‘Africa for Africans……

    I simply listened in the background deliberately. It was very promising. Keep firing guys. KEEP firing.

    I’m told that Australia is a country with a common-sense immigration policy but, from what I’ve seen, is still suffering from a soft genocide. Chinese and Indians replacing the upper-middle class. Arabs enriching their extended clans in the usual quasi-organized-crime businesses and welfare schemes. African youth gangs. Billionaire ancient friends with their own foreign policy institutes, now apparently encouraging rancor from the indigenous population as well.

    Australia is ‘Anglo-Celtic’, and if you are a Celtic or Scottish Australian, you might raise the question of genocidal practices with your Anglo friends, and tell them simply that you won’t suffer it from them again. Englishmen, to this day, don’t feel guilty about the death and dispossession of the Irish, Welsh and Scots- and they never will. The cracks will appear in their orthodox anti-white hatred. The hairs on the backs of their necks will bristle.

      You also have a large “white flight” South-African population, who have a hell of a lot more experience than you do in these things, and you might ask them about what happens when Europeans become a minority.

    Besides becoming aware of the hostility and incompatibility of the invaders and our own identity and ethnic interests, it is also necessary to realize that we are ruled by what Kevin MacDonald calls a “hostile elite”, which plans our marginalization if not outright destruction. Without the machinations of this hostile elite we wouldn’t be in the present predicament.

    The Counter-Jihad sites are a dead end or used by the Zionists.

    Very important article.

    Due to a fertility rate between 4 and 6.3 per Women, the Asians in the Middle East and the Africans breed us out. No matter if they are Muslims or not. Thanks to our developement programs their mortality rate is reduced (Good Job, Bill Gates!).

    In South America the all over fertility rate is among 3 and 4.5 per Women.
    South America is very heterogentic though.
    Compared to indusrialized countries likes USA (1.8) and Germany (1.4) where I am from, it’s still a disaster.

    Some of my European fellows woke up. Finally.
    Unfortunately they are now trapped in the Counter-Jihad movement. It’s a first step in the right direction, but the message is a different one:

    We are at war in four spheres
    1) Race
    2) Class
    3) Culture
    4) Theistic Religion

    We have to win all of them. Physically and mentally.

    A liberal society usually creates concentrations. I.e. money, people, network, sexuality, friendship, and actually every aspect of live. What does that mean for us? Even if there are no Muslims, even if the fertility rates decline, people will head to Northern America and Europe.
    Why? Because they can! The whole world is going to concentrate in white countries as soon as they are able to move. A relative wealth gap is enough to ignite the migration. And they bring their Race, Class, Culture, Theistic Religion with them. They will occupy money, network, sexuality, friendshitp and every other apsect of our live.
    And of course the Mexicans who are ,,integrated” in the USA think of themselves as Mexicans and are nothing more than a fith column. Same here with Turks…
    It just will not end. Those non-white countries are able to send a constant flow of estimated 60 Million migrants evey year. Some of them die, some of them get stuck in non-white areas but nonetheless within five years we are a minority and within ten years we are too weak.
    In the age band of 26 – 39 years old we are within two years a minority (applies for Goymoney).
    The first attempts are allready made to give the right to vote to refuggees in Germany. That is ridiculous and just an attack on our chance to turn this around peacefully. Democracy can’t be applied under those conditions.
    It’s on our generation to win this war. I am proud to be a part of it and I want to win! A good life is a hard life.

    Greetings and best wishes from Germany!

    Don’t forget all the ‘Muslims fear backlash’ stories. As we know, before victims of radical Muslims are fully stiff, Western media double-flips from attack coverage into “Oh, those poor Muslims about to be hideously persecuted by vengeful honkie hayseeds”! We’re still waiting, after all these years, for an actual anti-Muslim pogrom to break out. Media tells us these horrors are latent dangers, even if we’ve never really seen any and we know media is a hostile liar. We’ll wait. We know not to question wisdom of this malarky, since doing so would daub us with the racist Islamophobe brush. Actually, there’s only one ‘backlash’ story and, like baseball movies, it’s retold a 1001 times.
