Richard Edmonds (1943-2020)

I just learned that Richard Edmonds passed away last week. In 2015 I had written about him: ‘I saw him last year during a BNP meeting outside London and later talked to him personally’. In a National Vanguard obituary we see that Edmonds ‘came to believe that unless the edifice of lies about the Second World War is consistently and courageously challenged… “everything else is a waste of time”.’

American white nationalists have a lot to learn from this statement by a true English gentleman.

Tom Metzger (1938-2020)

At 82, Thomas Linton Metzger passed away a week ago. See the Metapedia page on him. Metzger belonged to a different generation of masculine racists than today’s racialist gentlemen.

His web page can still be seen although it was edited to notify his passing.

Lloyd deMause (1931-2020)

I just found out that Lloyd deMause died in April.

In 2014, I asked a racially conscious white, that we will call ‎Madgambler, to write to deMause to find out if he had a Jewish background, but deMause did not respond. Madgambler even wrote to one of his closest associates posing as a liberal but said he didn’t know. Since I have said many things on this site about deMause in the context of psychohistory, it would be great to find out if his recent ancestors were ethnic Jews.

Roger Scruton (1944-2020)

Author of The Aesthetics of Music (1997), Scruton also wrote many books on philosophy, art, politics, literature, culture, sexuality and religion; he also wrote novels and two operas.

However, Scruton errs in this video by speculating how to correct the problem of degenerate music that ubiquitously is scorching the Aryan soul. There is only one way to correct it: banning degenerate music as the Nazis banned it. Scruton simply recommended educating people in classical music. Well, my father, who disliked degenerate music, was a music pedagogue for children and yet my siblings and nephews, who studied in his music school, listen to degenerate music.

I expose such a flawed approach in music education in my second autobiographical volume, ¿Me Ayudarás? I must add that the libertarians in white nationalism, that is, those who fear Nazi collectivism, are wrong. They start from the assumption of the Enlightenment that Man is good by nature. The reality is that Man is not so good (again, see the book linked in this paragraph) and we need a Fourth Reich to control him. Consider, for example, how many white nationalists enjoy hearing degenerate music!

It seems a lie, but on this issue a woman like Carolyn Yeager, who admires National Socialism, is far closer to the truth than the men of white nationalism.

Dymphna has died

by Rollory

Given how important GOV [Gates of Vienna] was in the early days of the 9/11 dissident right, especially as a place where people came together to toss around ideas and evidence with relative freedom, I believe this is of interest to Chechar at the very least. Certainly some of Chechar’s (and others’) arguments that were made in GOV comment threads were very important in shaping my own way of thinking.

That the owners of GOV themselves were never persuaded by certain arguments doesn’t negate the value of the discussions they fostered.

Editor’s comment:

GoV’s commenter Conservative Swede taught me to think a lot about axiology and Christianity ten years ago. What you say is absolutely true. In fact, these days I have thought exactly the same about white nationalism in general and MacDonald in particular.

Baron Bodissey’s GoV focuses on Islam and when I was a fan of that site I used to be a counter-jihadist.

MacDonald’s TOO focuses on Jewry and when I was a fan of that site I used to be a monocausal anti-Semite.

Now I know better but both were very useful stepping stones in my crossing the psychological Rubicon. It is always interesting to revisit our previous steps while crossing the river and this, of course, included Gates of Vienna in my own path.

Speaking of our intellectual adventures a decade ago, today I re-read the longest entry ever I’ve posted. It is a 33, 500-word collection of comments that in 2010 I posted in the old incarnation of this site: a bitter discussion between Trainspotter and Hunter Wallace. The latter favoured doing immediate activism, and working within the system through FAIR, Glenn Beck, NumbersUSA and the political mainstream.

It was precisely my epigraph in that post quoting Rollory, the author of the above obituary, what throws light about that huge entry in a single paragraph. Obviously, this was posted before Trump and Charlottesville:

“Activism at this stage doesn’t matter. There needs to be a critical mass of the general white population that is receptive to a potentially revolutionary message before anything of the sort will make any headway. That requires much greater social problems and disruption than are yet present: ordinary people need to be feeling it regularly at the dinner table, and more immediate concerns than American Idol or X’s Got Talent. The iron is not yet hot, striking it now won’t accomplish anything.”

Guillaume Faye (1949-2019)

Counter-Currents will publish several memorial tributes to Faye in the coming days. In the meantime, I wish simply to draw your attention to Greg Johnson’s ‘Remembering Guillaume Faye: November 7, 1949–March 7, 2019’.

Harold Covington (1953-2018)

Like every Westerner, I used to be a eunuch, but the reading of Covington’s The Brigade made me grow my balls again.

Now that, last week, Uncle Harold left this world, the duty of every Aryan male is to obtain a copy of his best novel and grow a pair.

Goodbye Uncle Harold! We didn’t agree on everything but I’ll miss our correspondence. I wish you had seen our promised land…

Gary Lee Yarbrough

(1955-2018)

The Silent Brotherhood (German: Brüder Schweigen) was a pro-white organisation active in the US between 1983 and 1984. Members, including Gary Yarbrough, were unjustly accused and convicted of various crimes.

Yarbrough died in jail a couple of days ago.

Salvador Borrego

(1915-2018)

Mexican journalist Salvador Borrego, author of revisionist books about the Second World War, died last month, aged 102. The year that Borrego was a hundred years old, in 2015, David Duke paid a visit to him in Guadalajara, as can be seen in this photograph.

In 1955 the famous José Vasconcelos wrote a preface for Borrego’s main work, Derrota Mundial, in which Borrego argues that the world lost with the defeat of Germany.
