The Counter-Currents 9/11 SymposiumGreg Johnson
For the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Counter-Currents published a symposium (linked below) which, sadly, still remains relevant as the organized Jewish community and various white traitors, dupes, and tools agitate for yet another war with one of Israel’s enemies based upon lies and sanctimony. These are my opening remarks.

The anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks is approaching. Frankly, I plan to ignore the official commemorations and mainstream commentary. I felt the horror, mourned the victims, and pitied their loved ones in healthy measure, thank you very much. But that was almost ten years ago.
I want to look back at 9/11 coldly now. I want to save my emotions for the hundreds of thousands killed and wounded and the millions who have suffered because of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (our people and theirs) — suffering and death that dwarf what happened on 9/11 — suffering and death that are supposedly justified by what happened on 9/11 — suffering and death that are not ten years old but that are happening to this day. We have to look back at 9/11 coldly, or the same horrors will be occurring ten years from now as well.
The narcissism, bad faith, and bad taste of America’s 9/11 commemorations have taken on an almost Jewish quality. The official line is: We were entirely innocent. We were hated for our virtues. And because we are such good and innocent people, when we are wronged, that entitles us to do anything we want to our enemies. And lest our persecuting zeal flag, well we must never forget and never forgive, for we are the true victims, the only victims who matter. Thus we must forever commemorate our victimhood, not to avoid future horrors but to make them inevitable, so that blood may flow without ceasing.
Where have we heard all that before?
Well, I just don’t have to stomach to watch it, even if they throw in an Albert Speer light show.
Instead, I have asked a number of regular Counter-Currents contributors to share their reflections on 9/11 ten years later. I will also share my thoughts in a separate piece. My single ground-rule is that these reflections be honest. Honestly angry, honestly sympathetic, honestly high-minded, honestly cold-blooded, honestly indifferent, honestly brimming with Schadenfreude — but above all honest.
I doubt we will ever have 9/11 “truth,” because we do not control access to the truth. But 9/11 honesty is completely within each individual’s power, starting right here, right now. Join us.

The event ruined my life. Definitely took a trajectory I’d have avoided completely otherwise. At least I didn’t get phsycially hurt in the redirection.
I think 9/11 was evidence of such extreme hubris from Jews that it was/is the beginning of the end of Zionism. And no Gentile will, or should shed a tear.
“This is gonna change everything.”
That was my first thought on that apocalyptic day twenty years ago upon seeing video of the Twin Towers going down.
It could be argued that, OK, the US bombs other countries, the US should expect to be bombed in return. Raid and counter-raid, that’s been the history of the world. Take it in stride like a responsible imperial power. Launch a punitive expedition to settle the score, declare victory after teaching Al Qaeda an abject lesson. But this time around, it was going to be different. The US was embarking on a course from which there was going to be no return.
In the aftermath of 9/11, George W. Bush had a blank check to do anything. He could have closed the borders, ended the outsourcing of industry, put a halt to affirmative action and the rest of the rackets which have morphed into today’s anti-White regime. What happened, I think. is that the energies of traditional America were diverted to fighting an external enemy. And while US armies were marching about the Hindu Kush and up the Tigris-Euphrates, the internal enemy was pushing the rising tide of anti-Whiteness.
There is an Orwellian element at work here: the war on terror has had just enough bloodshed to entertain the public, but not enough to discomfit too many folks back home. A perpetual bug hunt for perpetual national security.
For a lot of Americans, the 9/11 commemorations are one front where they can show some traditional patriotic sentiment. This in the face of the ongoing march of globalism, iconoclasm and the transnational COVID lockdown. You can fly the flag, get sentimental about the troops, and imagine a victory over the third world whether in Central Asia or the hordes marching into the Homeland.
It’s an error to attack this sentiment since it does have an element of the old White America. There is a case to be made for rolling with the patriotism to develop a pro-White strategy. Perhaps some kind of “stab in the back” propaganda line can be developed over the recent debacle in Kabul. Relate it to the expanding anti-White policies of the Regime, and the ongoing destruction of American history and culture.
“Anti-Whites are the Real Terrorists” or something like that.
To reiterate an old cliche: a crisis is an opportunity. Let’s see the Dissident Right carpe some diem.
Victorian Imperialism was the safety valve to prevent domestic war in Britain. It’s obviously what Bush, Obama and Trump were up to. Now, the war’s going to be drones stRiki-Eiking Midwestern towns.
