Note: This piece was written before Trump declared that the US would not invade Syria. That is, however, not the primary point of this article. But, who knows what might happen next week – the neocons could be calling for ground troops in Yemen.
In light of recent events, it is not too far-fetched to consider that there may soon be yet another official theater in the never ending War on Terror. Just as the lines in the military recruiting stations were out the doors before the invasion of Iraq and the subsequent surge; it is not inconceivable to imagine this scenario once again repeating itself. This is surely alarming to the majority of identitarians and nationalists living in America.
My views on race differences did not come from some heavy-handed indoctrination from anyone. It came from looking at atlases and tables. I love tables and lists, when I’m bored I’ll make lists out of things just for fun.
Murray Rothbard, when reading about regulatory policies of the US Federal Government, said that he didn’t set out to find some conspiracy – but that the conspiracies just popped right out at him. Seeing these conspiracies between industry and government was not a product of some analysis on Rothbard’s part at first. It was a holisis, or an immediate piecing together of a narrative based on a scattershot of information. And here I’m going to try to convey in a single article the “holisis” of information I slowly internalized over a 2 year period.
Apologies for the tabloidy title. This is an otherwise serious post.
It is well known that higher rates of cousin marriages – especially the father’s brother’s daughter (FBD) type that is common in the Arab Muslim world – tends to increase clannishness and depress IQs. It is often discussed in HBD circles. The main focus of the most prominent current discussions led by Steve Sailer are the ways in which cousin marriage relates to the European immigration crisis. His argument basically goes that Europe is about to get tons of mentally stunted inbreds who will use proceed to use cousin marriage as a mechanism by which to bring over millions more of their (literal) cousins from the Middle East and Pakistan.
That Sailer, an American nativist, chooses to focus on the “invite” side of his “invade/invite the world” dichotomy is understandable. But what it leaves unsaid is that consideration of cousin marriage patterns also appears to explain quite a lot of the dynamics of the Syrian Civil War – and crucially, in so doing, invalidates all of the “intellectual” underpinnings of the neocon clamoring for Ramboing into Syria to remove Assad.
On February 6th, the rancid city council of Charlottesville, Virginia voted 3-2 to remove a statue of the great Robert E. Lee and rename Lee Park. The fact that the beautiful statue has been there since 1928 and is protected by Virginia law means very little to the lawless and (so much for the) tolerant Left.
Councilman Wes Bellamy, who voted to remove our cultural and historical legacy, used the tired and clichéd line that community members (code for entitled blacks) felt the statue was culturally offensive and a symbol of “muh white supremacy.” Of course, the good councilman has his own little colorful background of subversive anti-white history.
The media is reporting that a Middle Eastern dictator has used chemical weapons against his own people, killing women and children. Stop me if you’ve heard this one.
Even if all of this were true, and it may be so, it would still be an insufficient reason to intervene in Syria against the government there.
It has long been known that we vary not only in our sensitivity to different smells but also in our preferences for them—the degree to which they seem pleasant or unpleasant. This variability often contains a large genetic component (Gross-Isseroff et al., 1992; Karstensen and Tommerup, 2012; Keller et al., 2007; Keller et al., 2012; Weiss et al., 2011). In the case of one odor, a single gene explains over 96% of the variability in smell sensitivity (Jaegar et al., 2013). A twin study has similarly found two odorants to be 78% and 73% heritable (Gross-Isseroff, 1992).
I know not how the world will receive, nor how it may reflect on those that shall seem to favor it. For in a way beset with those that contend, on one side for too great Liberty, and on the other side for too much Authority, ‘tis hard to pass between the points of both unwounded. – Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan
Can it be therapeutic?
I suppose it happens everywhere. A famous liberal stays politically correct, blames whites for all the ills of the world, and lavishes praise on all who seek to destroy Europe or the West—only to become the next victim of a PC witch-hunt.
This is a jarring statement at first glance, but I think the evidence is pretty simple and clear. Perhaps to reduce emotionality, replace “slave” with “serf” or “peasant,” which is appropriate since in practice they were the same thing—one system had a Master who owned a slave, the other had a Lord who owned land that a serf was bound to work on.
We have a president who is belligerent towards Iran, who is sending “boots on the ground” to fight ISIS, who loves Israel passionately and who is increasing already bloated defense budgets. If one were a neoconservative, what is there not to like, yet neocons in the media and ensconced comfortably in their multitude of think tanks hate Donald Trump. I suspect it comes down to three reasons. First, it is because Trump knows who was sticking the knife in his back during his campaign in 2016 and he has neither forgiven nor hired them. Nor does he pay any attention to their bleating, denying them the status that they think they deserve because of their self-promoted foreign policy brilliance.
Since the recent CIA claims of Russian interference in the American election, the Left has begun to craft a new narrative. The narrative is that anyone who supports Trump is fundamentally anti-American, while Liberals are the last group in the country which truly loves America—the country’s only remaining patriots.

Egalitarians have argued that notions of nation and race are largely modern constructs. Marxists in particular have typically claimed that Western ruling classes invented these ideas to consolidate the power of bourgeois states or as a mere pretext to divide the working class along (supposedly imaginary) racial lines and to oppress their colonial subjects.
The Iron Law of Heritability
From Thomas Bouchard 2004:
“As Rutter (2002) noted, ‘Any dispassionate reading of the evidence leads to the inescapable conclusion that genetic factors play a substantial role in the origins of individual differences with respect to all psychological traits, both normal and abnormal’ (p. 2). Put concisely, all psychological traits are heritable.”
This is Rebel Yell – a Southern Nationalist podcast of the Alt-Right. I’m your host Musonius Rufus. Joining me are my cohosts Mencken’s Ghost and Ryan McMahon. For our 61st episode, we have two interviews. In the first interview, old Confederate John Sevier talks about the importance of the manosphere red pill. In our second interview, Todd Lewis of Praise of Folly returns to the programme to talk about Alfred Kinsey and the sexual revolution.
In this article, I am going to examine how the Black/White IQ gap has changed over time in the United States. After documenting basic trends, I’ll look at what caused the B/W IQ gap to shrink in the late 20th century. As will be seen, simplistic explanations based on changes in wealth and education are inadequate. We don’t know for sure why this convergence of test scores occurred, but desegregation is the most plausible hypothesis I have been able to come up with. We’ll also see that this narrowing of the IQ gap may have reflected a narrowing in test-taking ability rather than genuine intelligence. Finally, I will consider what implications this data has on the causes of racial intelligence disparities.
An attack on London is an attack on multiculturalism, not the “imperialist West” or the “crusader states.” The great irony is that it is highly likely the diverse victims of the Westminister terrorist would have either met his demands or permitted him and his kind to implement them in the long haul. Liberals never say no to the spread of Islam, so there is no reason to use violence to dominate them if you are a Muslim. You need only wait and take the Houellebecq or the Boumediene approach.
Memes have power. Statistics have power. Which of us have not heard the statistic, bandied around universities, that 1 in 3 female college students will be sexually assaulted? Whether or not that statistic is accurate, it is a demonstration of the great ability of “sticky” facts and figures to permeate and influence the public discourse.
In this day and age of instant communication, such “stickiness” is a tool of unbelievable power for movements able to harness it. As a case in point closer to home, we recently saw a similar example of “stickiness” in the rise of the term “Cuckservative.” The cultivation of such memes allows for a spotlight to be shone on issues and questions of significance within a movement or struggle.
Can you imagine in the Current Year our Cultural Marxists-entrenched media and their Glavlit-inspired approval and publishing apparatus allowing a science-fiction hero to be a (1) white, (2) heterosexual, (3) male and, (4) this is the real icing-on-the-cake, also a brave Confederate war veteran? In 2017, no – no, you cannot. It would be unpublishable today.
