Friday, President Donald Trump met in New Jersey with his national security advisers and envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who is negotiating with the Taliban to bring about peace, and a U.S. withdrawal from America's longest war. U.S. troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since 2001, in a war that has cost 2,400 American lives. Following the meeting, Trump tweeted, "Many on the opposite sides of this 19 ...

Speaking of leftist media strategies to sink President Trump in 2020, both the New York Times and Washington Post had front-page Sunday stories about presidential advisor Stephen Miller. Both had similar small headshot photos of Miller. What are the odds of such a “coincidence”?? It’s amazing! As mentioned earlier here, the Times held a big strategy meeting recently to switch the lies against Trum...

I’ve noted recently that there seems to be a certain “type” leading the anti-science, anti-Truth shock troops into battle: Ben van der Merwe, Adam Rutherford, Jess Wade and Susan Goldberg. They are members of ethnic minorities. They are from privileged backgrounds. But despite attendance at superb and usually private schools, they have failed to attend the most elite universities. However, there are always exceptions to rules and it’s important to understand them as well. Angela Saini, the British-Indian BBC and Guardian journalist and author of the much-touted anti-science book Superior: The Return of Race Science, is just such an exception.

Saini’s race-denying book has been pulled to pieces by various non-woke academics, triggering her groupie, Jess Wade, to have one very critical review removed by YouTube for allegedly violating its community guidelines.

Angela Saini agrees with Wade that race is a “social construct,” that it is immoral to research race differences even if they are real, and that truth is reducible to power.

In other ways, however, they are very different. Saini, a genuine meritocrat, is clearly cleverer. But her higher intelligence, unfortunately, seems to be overwhelmed by a condition known as “Paranoid Personality Disorder” —characterized by extreme sensitivity to criticism, grudge-holding, suspiciousness and secretiveness, a combative sense of self-righteousness, self-aggrandizing (to compensate for paranoia about not being good enough), and a preoccupation with dangers and conspiracies.

See, earlier: Why VDARE.com/The White Doe? by Peter Brimelow, December 25, 1999

When VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow launched this site, he named it VDARE.com after Virginia Dare, the first white child born of English parents in North America. Virginia Dare was born 432 years ago today on August 18, 1587, but thereafter she and her whole family—her whole colony—vanished.

Peter wrote

I have always been fascinated by the story of Virginia Dare. She was the first English child to be born in the New World, in August 1587, shortly after the founding of what was to become known as “The Lost Colony” on Roanoke Island off the North Carolina coast. It says something about the mettle of those settlers that any pregnant woman would cross the Atlantic, the equivalent of a lunar expedition at that time—and Virginia’s mother Elenor was no less than the daughter of John White, the colony’s governor.

Perhaps you have to have a daughter yourself to appreciate what White must have felt three years later, when he finally returned from a supply trip to England, much delayed by the  Spanish Armada. The smoke he took at first to be proof of occupation turned out to be brushfires. The settlement stood abandoned. Over a hundred settlers, his daughter and granddaughter among them, had vanished. He would never see them again.

We don’t know what happened to Virginia Dare. If she survived, she might have been “adopted” by Indians, and married into the tribe. While you will hear, below, that slavery began in America when white people brought Africans to America, in fact the Indians used to kidnap and enslave each other all the time, without needing the example provided by the white adoption of the African custom of slavery. They were quite capable of kidnapping and enslaving a white  child, if available. Indeed, it's not impossible that they ate her.

Now, as Steve Sailer has pointed out in Retconning American History: The 1619 Project Vs. The Wretched Refuse, , the big project of America’s Ruling Class is to make 1619, the date that African slaves were first imported onto American soil, the date of the founding of the real America:

The Fourth of July in 1776 is regarded by most Americans as the country’s birthday. But what if we were to tell you that the country’s true birth date, the moment that its defining contradictions first came into the world, was in late August 1619?

That was when a ship arrived at Point Comfort in the British colony of Virginia, bearing a cargo of 20 to 30 enslaved Africans. Their arrival inaugurated a barbaric system of chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years and form the basis for almost every aspect of American life. The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times memorializing that event on its 400th anniversary. The goal of the project is to deepen understanding of American history (and the American present) by proposing a new point of origin for our national story. In the days and weeks to come, we will publish essays demonstrating that nearly everything that has made America exceptional grew out of slavery.

This is simply a lie. I think the problem is that black Americans can’t get it through their heads that most of American history is not about them.

See, earlier, by John Derbyshire: “Racism” (The Word) Becoming Obsolete Because Of Racism—Anti-White, That Is

Founding stock Americans are now perilously close to becoming a powerless minority ruled over by aliens who cherish a carefully cultivated resentment—not to say hatred—towards us. If nothing is done to change the trajectory in which our society is moving, it is hard to see how our children can avoid outright physical persecution.

The hostile elites who rule over us, of course, paint a different picture. Even as they triumphantly celebrate America’s growing racial diversity, they are incredulous any whites could imagine their group is being replaced: that is a “conspiracy theory,” perhaps a symptom of mental illness. Nonwhites are, indeed, growing in numbers and power, but somehow, simultaneously, whites are not losing out in any way. Indeed, we enjoy enormous unearned privilege. The real danger to America is white supremacy, a “sinister ideology” (Donald Trump), a “depraved evil” (Ted Cruz) now said to be on the rise.

The two side in America’s looming struggle now live in such different mental universes that communication between them has become almost impossible. One reason for this mutual incomprehension is language. Popular political discourse is filled with expressions meant not to communicate, but to manipulate.

Much of this involves what the great rhetorical scholar Richard Weaver called “god terms” and “devil terms.” God terms include freedom, justice, and—in our own age—democracy and equality.

The special character of god terms is to combine highly positive connotations with an absence of clear denotation. Thus, people of directly opposed principles can both appeal to “freedom” or “justice.” They use the same words, but do not refer to the same things. Democracy, e.g., can refer to Periclean Athens, Jacksonian America, or even the communist “people’s democracies” set up by Stalin after World War II. Freedom can mean sovereignty and independence, the right to participate in politics, or the absence of state intervention in the market. For Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters in South Africa, it means the freedom to seize other people’s property.

Devil terms can be even more manipulative and dishonest than god terms.  Obvious contemporary examples include “racist,” “white supremacist,” “fascist,” and “neo-Nazi.” Past ages had different devil terms—"heretic,” “atheist,” “communist,” etc. The specific words change, but they always combine intensely negative connotations with extreme vagueness of denotation, i.e., they denounce a presumed referent without serving to make clear exactly who it is.

Devil terms are an aspect of demonology, an aspect of any religion or ideology. It provides a way of accounting for the failure of an ideal to be realized. In the Christian Middle Ages, the City of God could never be built on earth because there were literal demons roaming about, forever tempting men into sin. But, while scapegoating by means of devil terms has deep roots in religious demonology, its more immediate predecessor was a utopian political ideology of the last century: communism.

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81tCdffrWrL.jpgMichael Malice’s book The New Right is interesting but he’s fundamentally wrong about the Trump presidency’s impact on American politics. “In my view, the salient thing about the Trump presidency is how he has mainstreamed several formerly marginalized strands of right-wing thought and behavior,” he writes. Yet the Republican Establishment has largely co-opted Trump. Main Stream Media journalist enforcers, financial institutions, government officials and law enforcement are now far more aggressive against dissidents on the nationalist Right. Far from being undermined, “The Cathedral,” Mencius Moldbug’s term for the interlocking network of media outlets and universities that preach the egalitarian faith and manufacture public opinion, is more demanding than ever. Maybe that’s because they’re panicking, but the fact cannot be denied.

Malice defines The New Right as:

… A loosely connected group of individuals united by their opposition to progressivism, which they perceive to be a thinly veiled fundamentalist religion dedicated to egalitarian principles and intent on totalitarian world domination via globalist hegemony.

Excitable vocabulary notwithstanding, that’s about right. As Malice himself notes, the “Alt Right,” which he defines (debatably) as those who think race is an important issue, is simply a faction within a broader movement.

Though Malice doesn’t really explore this, the “Alt Right” and “Alt Light” once worked together. The break didn’t occur until Hailgate in November 2016. The Alt Right remained a coherent force even after Charlottesville until it was essentially crushed by government action, lawfare, defunding and deplatforming.
