When you take power, you should intimidate other countries, but why wait till the last minute?

Overheard at the meeting between Trump and Mexican President Nieto:

"This is a nice capital city you've got here. It's HUGE. Some say it's the biggest city in the world... It would be a shame if somebody nuked it."

"You don't own any race horses, do you, Enrique? No? Racing dogs? No? Any of those cockfighting roosters? No? Your kids have any pets?....

"You know, Enrique, technically it's illegal to cross the Rio Grande without permission. Sure, you knew that. So it would be illegal even if I crossed it. Also, did you know that it was illegal for Julius Caesar to cross the Rubicon?

"No, Enrique, I'm a collector of political memorabilia — I assure you, the "Polk for President" button doesn't mean a thing."

"In a spirit of international cooperation, I'm sure you'll be glad to join me in banning those Absolut Vodka ads...."

"When I make an offer once, I never make it again. Now, about that wall...."

That was all just for fun. Why, I can't figure out whether the Rubicon's counterpart is the Rio Grande or the Potomac. And I'm sure that the Spanish language is far easier to learn than Gaulish was. For that matter, the Gaulish warriors were far more formidable than the Mexican Army. See? All kinds of differences.

The below was found on Reddit, by "Anonymous":

People keep comparing Trump to Hitler (we've all seen this low-energy BS by now), but they should be comparing him to Julius Caesar (the first literal God-Emperor of the Roman Empire). Allow me to explain.

In the Roman republic, there were two political parties. One was called the Populares (literally: "the populists"), and represented the desires of the common citizens. The other party was called the Optimates (literally: "the best"), and represented Patricians and Equestrians (read: the political elite/establishment).

During Caesar's ascendancy, he was a leader among the Populares, propelled by his military successes in Gaul (the dude seriously annihilated barbarians). Cato, meanwhile, was a major voice for the Optimates, and is respected to this day for his excellent rhetoric and political professionalism.

Caesar branded Cato as an effeminate sexual degenerate (i.e. cuck), and Cato branded Caesar as a despot whose personal successes were irrelevant to the leadership of Rome (sound familiar?). Caesar won the election and the consulate (the Roman presidency).

You can read about the rest elsewhere, but Caesar turned out to be such a strong leader that he ushered in the "Pax Romana" (peace through Roman strength) for the next several centuries. Many "barbarian nations" (including modern day Germany and Russia) took his name (pronounced "Kie-sar" in classical latin, think "Kaiser") as their word for a king or a leader. In short, he made Rome great again despite his rivals going so far as to assassinate him.

He did make one big mistake though — he built a bridge over the Rhine. Once the Rhine was no longer an effective barrier to population movement (not necessarily due to Caesar's bridge, though his was the first), eastern European barbarians could move freely into Europe. Some 400-500 years later, their free movement into Western Europe led to the fall of the Roman Empire.

If only the Rhine had been ten feet deeper...

Smart men (like Trump) learn from the mistakes of others.

Hail Caesar.

The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good, a Damned Dangerous Enemy in this Case

Anybody who's looking for the perfect Presidential candidate is naïve at best, and, well, nuts at worst. You see, folks, nobody's perfect, much less a politician, and the ones who have had perfection attributed to them turn out to be monsters — Mao, Lenin, and a great many third-world "leaders" who popped up during the period of decolonization after the war.

As the quibcag suggests, the left is trying to make Trump out to be the perfect bad guy while the right wants him to be the perfect good guy. He's neither. He couldn't possibly be either one. Nobody could be.

What we on the right want and expect from Trump is really pretty simple and straightforward. We want a change of direction, We want to reverse the trend of repopulating the country with anything but European immigrants — a policy that the left thinks is the height of virtue and with which the phony neoconservative "right" is in perfect agreement.

Just for fun, this is from the Preamble to the Constitution:

...secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity...

Now, what do you suppose "our posterity" refers to? The Tsarnaev brothers? Nidal Hassan? Several hundred thousand "Syrian" "refugees" Hillary intends to move in to where you can wave to them over your back fence? Chinese spies? Somali gang-bangers? Emma Lazarus's extended family (here to give them a "safe space" before their next foray into social super-engineering)?

No, "posterity" means "Desendants," and nor just any, but the descendants of the guys signing the document. Tacitly, they acknowledged that yes, they'd make room for their British brothers and sisters when they decided they needed their fertility and skill sets, and even their North European cousins, from Holland and Scandinavia and Germany. I won't bother enumerating the groups not included among their posterity, lest it offend someone, but I guarantee you they wouldn't include Al Sharpton or Huma Abedin or Marc Rich.

Yes, we've degenerated into an empire that includes such people from the ethnostate we started out as, but what most of us want —including most of those not descended from the Founders — is for the degeneration to stop now, and for us to maintain at least our current ethnic balance without our original British stock reducing in percentage still further, and, happily, even increasing a bit. Those of us descended from that original stock want this to be the case because we're not idiots, and those of us not so descended want this to be the case because because, well, they're not idiots, and they've seen the glories of multiculturism flare up around the world in all kinds of interesting ways.

To change the subject slightly, but only slightly, Trump keeps getting accused of modifying his position on immigration. By the time you figure out that he actually hasn't, the press has moved on to other important stories about how Trump's great-great grandfather shook hands with Nathan Bedford Forresr once. As usual, Gavin McInnes says it better than I do. This is from Takimag:

Trump Did Not Flip-Flop on Immigration

A Queasy Quibcag Quarrel

Well, what do you think? — I am again sort of under siege — mostly in the kindest way — by those who say the anime is a bad idea. For example:

Your posts are spot on! Then you spoil them with anime photos.
It prevents me from sharing them.


And not so kind:

Yeah, very f*cking clever using the anime renders to promote alt right quotes. Good f*cking job making us look like a bunch of fedora wearing degenerates.

But then I get:

Generally, I like Ex-Army's quibcags. If nothing else they are evidence that not *everyone* in the alt-right has a stick shoved up his arse.

And

The pictures are eye-catching and anyone who says "Gasp! Anime! To the gas chamber!" isn't important because they have already rejected the Left.


So which way do I jump? If I was convinced that the anime is a net loss in the quibcags, I'd drop it right away, of course, because I can make memes along with the best of them with or without illustrations.

Here's what I could do:

1. Drop the anime.

2. Do an anime and a non-anime version, as I've done here. A lot of trouble. Probably too much trouble.

3. Use different, more serious, illustrations on the memes. I originally rejected this path because I found it boring and very much not eye-catching.

Keep that in mind while I ramble. We have this:


Which is creepy, no two ways about it. Maybe these critics know more about the anime world than I do. Outside the anime world, do they sell Disney princess pillowcases? If they do, that's creepy, too. Maybe even more so because they'd be aimed at a younger demographic. Of maybe not.

Anyhow, the "degenerate" label keeps coming up. Clearly, according to a natural modification of Sturgeon's Law, X percentage of any popular art form is going to be "degenerate," or soon will be, right? And I've seen degenerate anime. Plenty of it. But I've also seen Miyazaki's movies and lots of anime that is upbeat. Take Detective Conan [link]. A great example of Japanese adoption of the American noir-ish detective story which is anything but degenerate, being more like a modern adaptation of medieval knightly stories of chivalry and morality than anything else.

Going a little further with this, do the critics want these quotes not illustrated at all, or just not illustrated with anime? Western cartoons can't be used (much) because of copyright, but if they could be, would that be all right?

And if the Japanese themselves find anime yukky, what's with all this Pokémon stuff?  What's with whole stores full of anime products?

But whether they or I understand best what anime means to people is beside the point. The point is, do quibcags work better or worse than regular memes? If worse, how can I mess with the memes I do to make them more attractive without the illustrations? Actually I think I basically have above, in the nonanime versions, because I've been more creative with colors and fonts.

So do chime in. Anime or not anime, which would you choose?

Oh. An offer. I'll be glad to do a non-anime version of any particular quibcag if anybody wants it for circulation or any other purposes. Just say the word.

But do let me know where you stand.

Is Steve Sailer Undercutting Himself?

Sometimes I think he does, but in the sense of being too subtle with irony and/or sarcasm. Let me explain. This from here [link]:
Steve quotes the LA Times, replies to it, and then I comment:
In the letter, Taylor denies the notion that “the things you love about America…are rooted in certain principles.” Rather, “they are rooted in certain people.” That is, white people: “Germans, Swedes, Irishmen, and Hungarians could come and contribute to the America you love,” Taylor says. “Do you really believe that a future Afro-Hispanic-Caribbean-Asiatic America will be anything like the America your ancestors built?”
That’s pretty much the argument of Federalist Paper #2, but then you can’t get more anti-American than Federalist Paper #2.
me: Here, unless you  read Steve all the time, you might very well take seriously his "Anti-American" comment.
Elsewhere, another quote from same paper, Steve's reply, my reply, doubled:
Paper:  But it is the underlying ideology of the Alt-Right, rather than its controversial policy positions, that is truly sinister.
Steve:  Those evil bastards don’t believe in the Zeroth Amendment to the Bill of Rights, as Founding Father Emma Lazarus carved on the Statue of Liberty in 1787.
Paper:  Alt-Right thought is based on white nationalism and anti-Americanism. 
Steve:  It’s almost as if the American Revolution had been about Americans demanding “the rights of Englishmen.”
me: Here's the same situation. Steve's being ironic instead of literal. He's pretending that  Emma Lazarus is a Founding Father and that her "Huddled Masses" is as valid a concept as those of the real Founders.
And, of course, our revolution was based on the Rights of Englishmen, not on the Rights of Saracens and/or whatever to immigrate. The revolution was fought for "ourselves and our posterity," not for "huddled masses" from anywhere. And if you look Lazarus up, BTW, you'll find these masses were mainly intended to be Jews, yearning to be free here for awhile, till they could get their ducks in a row and go create a Jewish ethnostate, throwing all the goyim the hell out, and so much for any ideas about "diversity."
But then Steve gets less subtle with:
One of the patterns you notice more and more these days is the descendants of Ellis Island huddled masses reasoning, “Boy those stupid WASPs shouldn’t have let us in way back then because, even though they are too stupid to have figured it out yet, we’ve taken over. But eventually they might figure it out … so we’d better punish them now so they can’t ever do anything about it in case they ultimately wake up. Hmmhhhmm … I know let’s rub their noses in diversity by letting in a hundred million or so Muslims! Yeah, then those idiot WASPs will finally notice they are being insulted and humiliated like they deserve. If that’s not enough to finally get their attention, we could let in two hundred million Muslims. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?”
That "what could possibly go wrong?” phrase is one of Steve's most common, itself of course always sarcastic/ironic. But here Steve Makes it clear that he's parroting what a nonWasp might be thinking/saying about our disposession.
All this is from a post of Steve's here [link]by the way.
So does Steve undercut himself with his irony? Answer: Maybe. Thing is, I'm sarcastic or ironic myself sometimes, and it spices things up. It adds immensely to the humor content of Steve's work, too.
There are damned few writers, especially political writers, out there who are both insightful and funny, and Steve is one of them. Oh, I try, but if you'll notice, just as in this post, most of my material is not original (Steve's is), and Steve blogs about six times as much material as I do anyway.
So the answer is, you simply have to real all of Steve all the time so you can get into the rhythm of his writing and know when he's being straightforward and when he's not. I'm reminded of the fellow who read Gulliver's Travels when it first came out and denounced it as a bunch of "damned lies." He just didn't get it. So, to make sure you get it, do at least go to Steve's site [link] every morning and skim his headlines. If you're like me, you'll probably go ahead and read his first post. Then the second. Then all. Then you'll be a Steve reader, and very much more likely to pick up on what's really going on out there.

Quibcags: Only the first is a new one, and it's a weirdo. I found the Viking girl somewhere on the net, and when I came across the "Africa Screams" Abbott and Costello still I just had to use it. The second quibcag uses a girl from Lucky Star (らき☆すた RakiSuta), the third the "Italy" girl from Hetalia: Axis Powers (Axis Powers ヘタリア), I believe, and the last a kind of generic I found on the net. All good Steve quotes, but you'll notice, all but the last are ironic, and could be misinterpreted by someone new to Steve's work.

Om Mani Padme Political Correctnesss

John Craig, right again as usual. How about the below? You can't argue with it once you give it some thought — Political Correctness is a religion, any way you look at it, so we might as well use the fact when we can. But how? Most PCites are, frankly, too damn dumb to know what you mean when you tell them they have a religion. They'll just tell you they don't and that you're a bigot. Maybe the thing to do is go through the courts, and somehow establish that PCism is a religion. You could even, like John suggests, prove that it's a religion because it insists on believing in the equality of men and women despite heaps of scientific evidence to the contrary, just like other irrational religions require of their followers.

Of course, PCism, like so many religions, isn't taken seriously by its own leaders — the PC Pope is an atheist, that sort of thing — but that doesn't make it any less of a religion. PCism was put together in order to further an alliance of anti-Western things that have often been called communism or Marxism. None of that stuff has any intrinsic importance to anybody. All elements of it are judged by their usefulness in the struggle to destroy Western Civilization. Right now, PCism is defending both homosexuality and Islam, despite the fact that they pretty much hate each other, because both is a good weapon against PCism's true enemy, Western Civilization. And I have strayed from the point yet again.

This is from Just Not Said [link].

The new religion

Christianity's hold on the West has been weakening for generations now.

But a new religion seems to have taken its place: political correctness. This religion espouses the essentially supernatural belief that there are no significant differences between men and women, or between the races. It preaches that biological reality has nothing to do with gender. And it sermonizes that examining statistical differences between various groups of people makes someone evil.

In this new religion, Satan has been more of less replaced by an entire group of people: white males. All social evils must be ascribed to that group.

Throughout history, most people have just gone along with the religion they're raised in, because it's instilled in them from an early age that this is what decent people believe. If you disbelieve, you go to hell. And even if you don't entirely buy into the concept of an afterlife, well, why take the chance? Even more importantly, veering from your religious roots would result in social ostracism. And for most people, that is a sort of hell.

An awful lot of people seem to subscribe to political correctness for essentially the same reasons. They have been taught that this is the mindset that decent people have. People who stray from the PC fold are essentially demonized with labels like "racist" and "sexist" and "ageist" and so on.

These terms are flung about with the same combination of horror and shock and prim disapproval that earlier generations flung about the terms "godless" and "heathen" and "harlot" and "fallen woman" and "bastard."

And, voicing doubts about PC-ism might result in becoming a social -- and sometimes, even professional -- outcast.

So, politically correct types dare not allow themselves to see the obvious. If any contrary thought does creep into their heads ("hmm, after all this talk of racism, maybe our diversity isn't our strength") it is quickly banished.

Most people view other religions, but not their own, as a bunch of silly superstitions. For instance, the idea of getting 72 virgins in Paradise is often mocked by Westerners. But, what, precisely, does Christianity's concept of heaven entail? It's generally unspecified, but for most people, well, limitless sex might be an appealing part of the package.

Likewise with PC-ism: it is regarded by its adherents as the one true way. It is other belief systems which are silly superstitions. Any scientific findings that contradict PC-ism, no matter how well-documented and rigorously proven, are quickly labelled "pseudoscientific" by PC-ites -- because there is no room for doubt in any religion.

The only thing different about PC-ism as a religion is that it prides itself on not being one.

Make no mistake: it is.

#AltRightMeans

It still  blows my mind that the term "Alt-right" was used by Hillary. Such conservative ideas/vocabulary are usually completely ignored by the likes of Hillary for decades if not forever.

But now it's out so we have to define it. Easy enough. First, it's short for "alternative right."  It's what I used to call the real right, because the alt-right is a Keeper of the Flame, a collection of real right-wingers of one sort or another whose main purpose is to keep the right going and convince people that the "neoconservatives" are most certainly not conservatives in any sense at all, but just a species of liberal.

Hillary, of course, considerers only neocons to be legitimate, because they're liberals, of her sort, even. The sort who always seem to be connected on Wall Street, and have been for some time.

Well, that's a definition, and "Disdain for Plebs" [link], has this to say about the implication:
#AltRightMeans  not having to constantly negotiate with liberals on your values when it comes to culture and race, because to them you are a racist for merely being born white. It means you understand your "white privilege" is not a privilege, but a birthright handed down by your ancestors who sought to make your life easier through thier own hard work and determination. It means not having to surrender your communities to third world migrants, because this president wants to stack the deck with Democrat voters. It means not aligning yourself with a Republican party which is happy to sell this nation to the highest corporate bidder that seeks to flood our neighborhoods with cheap South American labor. A Republican party who wants to bomb the Middle East back to the neolithic era, causing more irreversible migratory patterns. A Republican party who would rather side with a corrupt career criminal like Hillary Clinton, instead of Trump, merely because he tells everybody the unfortunate reality of our political and social environment as Americans. It means understanding liberty and freedom can sometimes only be preserved through strength, not tolerance.

The fact we're even having this discussion, the #AltRightMeans white Westerners are actually becoming racially aware in the same manner liberals encourage every other race to be, and have shamed themselves out of doing for the past 3 or 4 generations. the #AltRightMeans there is an actual difference now, between the leftwing and the rightwing. It means through the ashes of a dead party built on apathy and cowardice, an alternative is finally born. One that actually believes in self preservation, and not self destruction. I can say with confidence, the alt right means there is finally hope for a future which we've all convinced ourself has been massacred by both parties.

Ain't the Alt Right grand? The first time I heard the term I automatically knew that I was a part of it, as were most of those thinkers I most respected — Pat Buchanan, Sam Francis, Paul Gottfried, Joseph Sobran, etc. — the very sort of people who are both likely to be "purged" by the neocons and very unlikely to purge anybody themselves. 

But don't get the impression that the altrighters (I'm still searching for the optimum way to write the term) are all pussycats like Jared Taylor or most of the writers at Takimag — do remember that it also includes/included practically everybody we think of as conservative prior to 1968, such as Goldwater, George Lincoln Rockwell, the Klan, and Buckley before the neocons took control of him.

And it certainly includes Ex-Army. Pussycat or tiger? Time will tell.

Pepe the Frog, Hitler as Buddha or Vice-Versa, the Trump Nation, and of Course Kekking

Boy, am I ever out of it these days. Not that I'm running myself down, now. Most of my life I've been ahead of the pack, sniffing out the trends before they begin to jell. I even predicted that Trump would run twenty years ago. Well, to be honest, I predicted that a wealthy businessman with no political or military experience would seize control of a nomination to shake things up. I thought it would be Ted Turner.  Is that worth a "close enough"? Better than all these Cory Booker/Julian Castro predictors, I'd say.

Give me a break, kiddies. I'm seventy. Yes, five days younger than Trump, but he's a special case of high-energy, and he has people working for him who aren't going to let him miss anything important. I"m still trying to figure out how to pronounce "SWPL," or even if I should. Or if anybody should. And what the hell is "NEET"?

So we come to Pepe the Frog. I fully admit I failed to take "cuckservative" and its derivatives seriously enough. I thought it was too vulgar to catch on. But catch it did, because it is simply the perfect word to describe that type typified by Jeb! (Can a type be typified?), and it's already to the point where people are using it without knowing what it's supposed to mean at all.

Yes, Pepe the Frog. I didn't forget. The question is, is he significant or just a distraction? My instincts this time are to go against my instincts and say yes, he's important, because look at the Trump-as-Pepe drawing in the  quibcag. Trump's important, ergo Pepe is important.

Anyhow (and here I refer to the upcoming excerpt, unless I decided to reprint the whole thing), I always did take Savitri Devi seriously, and a case can evidently be made for lumping, as opposition to the Zeitgeist, Savitri Devi, Trump, Pepe, Hinduism (in a completely different manifestation from that of Camp of the Saints), and not Buddhism, really, not without understanding it a lot better, anyway.

But right now it would seem that, as they say, Trump "owns" Pepe, so we'd better keep track of Pepe, whether I'm seventy years old or not.

The below, originally called to my attention by Layne Piratess Bailey [link], doesn't prove that Pepe is as significant as Savitri Devi, but it at least suggests the possibility. I'm beginning to think that I have a knee-jerk aversion to Pepe because he's drawn way more crudely than the Baloo half of this team ever draws anything. And, this has got to be irrelevant, but the "kekking" referred to below reminds me of a totally different kind of "kekking" in Loglan, which you might remember if you're one of the eleven people on Earth still interested in Loglan. Who drew the guy with the net? Hm? [link]. Enough blather. This is from Atlantic Centurion:

Esoteric Kekism, or Kek as a Bodhisattva of Racial Enlightenment

Savitri Devi Mukherji (1905-1982), born Maximine Julia Portaz in France, was a national socialist writer and activist who lived in India during WWII and took a deep interest in Hinduism as the only extant example of Aryan polytheism. After the war, she went on a “pilgrimage” through Europe to sites associated with national socialism and published her magnum opus, The Lightning and the Sun (1958). A foundational text of Esoteric Hitlerism, the book presents a syncretic worldview combining national socialism, anti-humanism, vegetarianism, a Nietzschean rejection of Christianity, both religious anti-Judaism and racial anti-Semitism, the notion of cyclical time found in the Dharmic religions, and biographies of Mongol warlord Genghis Khan (Lightning), the Egyptian pharaoh and sun-worshipper Akhnaton (Sun), and Adolf Hitler (Lightning and Sun). Perhaps most famously, The Lightning and the Sun details the prophecy of Kalki the Destroyer—the final incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu—who will succeed Hitler and end the Kali Yuga (Dark Age/Age of Gloom).
A brief note on the Lightning and Sun concepts, and that of Time. Devi describes Men in Timeas Lightning. One who embodies Lightning does not move against the direction of Time and the ongoing decline into a world of violence and suffering, but moves in unison with Time in a way approaching perfection. She describes Genghis Khan, for example, not as a man of any grand ideological principles but one who merely acted in the interest of himself and his kinsmen, and did so with the utmost power and application of that power. Men above Time, who embody the Sun, are those who transcend the conditions of the Dark Age and hold to a truth that is independent of Time. Devi considers Akhnaton, the pharaoh of Egypt who attempted to start a new cult of monotheistic sun-worship, to be the most salient example of Sun. She sees his sun worship as something that is scientifically and metaphysically accurate—and therefore Truth—because the sun is the source of all energy on Earth, and therefore life itself. The religious revolution of Akhnaton died within a generation or so after him, as he had not lived long enough to cement it or been forceful enough in doing so. Finally, Devi considers Hitler a Man against Time—both Lightning and Sun—as he had embraced the violent means of the Dark Age and held an ideology of truth that was against the Dark Age. She describes him as the penultimate avatar of Vishnu, who will be succeeded by someone equally Lightning and Sun (Hitler was more Sun according to Devi).
Historian of the occult Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke describes Devi as “Hitler’s priestess,” which is the title of his biography of her and a fairly accurate description of her vocation. She essentially wanted to create a religion out of national socialism that could be followed during the postwar era to keep the truth and memory (as she saw it) of Hitler alive. This is an extreme challenge on a number of levels in that it entails: 1.) conversion to a new religion, 2.) getting members of the postwar population to embrace national socialism, which is reflexively opposed by most, and 3.) Hitler being an avatar of Vishnu.
I have a better idea, and I am only half-joking. While I find Devi’s theological national socialism intriguing, I think at our stage of the Kali Yuga (which according to her has been ongoing through all of recorded history), we need to adopt an approach which is appropriate to the times we live in and the attitudes of our people and culture. That is to say, I think something like Vishnu-Hitler is just too esoteric for any kind of mass consumption and is better left as a hermetic thing. The interest in the Dharmic religions, however, I think is something worth pursuing, for reasons similar to hers: 1.) they are directly descended from ancient Aryan faiths, 2.) they have resisted the encroachment of Abrahamic monotheism, and 3.) they are present in extant nationalist countries such as Japan and India.

Buddhism as an Indo-Aryan Tradition

Westerners, especially SWPLS, really like the idea of Buddhism (certainly more than the intensely alien Hinduism), which in its purest form is more philosophical than religious and teaches a balance between indulgence and asceticism, and that the meaning of life is to escape from the cycle of rebirth by reaching enlightenment. Comparisons of Jesus Christ and the Shakyamuni Buddha are legion, as both were charismatic leaders who founded religions of escapism. Thus for many Westerners, Buddhism does not feel intensely alien, and syncretism is common. Some people have no issue identifying as “Christian Buddhists,” for example. The the popularity of Buddhism or Buddhist teachings in the West is thus a kind of archaeofuturism, a truth from the past asserting itself in the present.

If I am not mistaken, Buddhism first broke into modern mainstream Western society in the 1960s with the hippie movement, though most of those people deeply misunderstood it as much as they did everything else. The enduring popularity of Buddhism among Westerners—best observed through the proliferation of yoga, meditation, and various forms of counter-signaling against consumerist norms—is interesting as it comes at a time when materialism has reached deeply disgusting and alienating levels—and when strict obedience to monotheistic religious texts and customs is waning (though still dominant). Buddhism thus becomes a natural fit for many atomized people in our society, owing to its radical departure from the norm and message of self-enlightenment. Again though, most Westerners have a completely superficial understanding of Buddhism—one so bastardized it might as well be considered an offshoot set of beliefs centered on being vaguely marxist and anti-tradition rather than committed to enlightenment.
I think elements of Buddhism and its heritage—when correctly understood—could be repurposed in ways pertinent to our cause and fashioned into something appealing. Siddhārtha Gautama (563 BC–483 BC, or 480 BC–400 BC), the founder of Buddhism, was a member of the kshatriya caste (warrior aristocracy) born in the northeast of late Vedic India. He lived in the Kingdom of Magadha, which was an ancient Indo-Aryan state located near what is now Nepal. Buddha is described as having blue eyes and a beautiful complexion, which to this day in the East—even before the time of modern European colonialism—means fair and light skin. The physical appearance of the Buddha indicates he must have had Aryan ancestry even centuries after the ancient migration into India.
esoteric-kekism-9

Thus Buddhism has roots in our distant pan-racial past, albeit a non-European one. Savitri Devi considered the Buddha to be a Man above Time (rather than a Man in Time or a Man against Time) as he had a conception of the world opposed to the Kali Yuga, but was not willing to use the methods of the Dark Age to achieve it.

Overview of Buddhist Philosophy and Cosmology

An extremely basic overview of Buddhist beliefs is necessary at this point. I will not attempt to detail the various sects (Theravāda, Mahāyāna, Vajrayāna, Tibetan, Zen) but provide general concepts shared by them, or most of them. If Buddhists of one sect believe something Buddhists of another sect reject, one can still say Buddhists believe it. From the top, Buddha taught that there are three kinds of suffering in earthly life:
  1. Suffering caused by pain (especially bodily)
  2. Suffering caused by change (e.g. the loss of something enjoyed)
  3. Suffering caused by conditions (e.g. fear, anxiety, dependence, lack of control, loneliness, etc.)
More famous are the Four Noble Truths he taught:
  1. Reality of Suffering – the three sufferings of pain, change, and conditions
  2. Cause of Suffering – having a false attitude towards reality, such as desire or ignorance
  3. End of Suffering – awakening to the truth
  4. Path of Ending Suffering – the Middle Way (or the more detailed Eightfold Path of right view, intention, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration)
Some elaboration on ending suffering and the path to ending suffering is necessary. Nirvānais the end of suffering brought about by awakening to the truths of non-duality, emptiness, and non-self, among others too varied or localized to fairly cover from a religion over 2000 years-old and spread across all Asia. Nirvāna means escape from samsara, the cycle of death and rebirth. The Middle Way, or non-duality, is an understanding of cosmic order that relies on balance between extremes, e.g. hedonism and asceticism, self-indulgence and self-deprivation. Emptiness is the understanding that there is nothing intrinsic to existence of anything. Non-self, more accurately a kind of interdependence, is the understanding that you have no permanent self.
In other words, one can strive to end their suffering through changing their thoughts and deeds in a lifetime to align with the Buddha’s teachings. This may lead to nirvāna, the complete escape from suffering, or reincarnation into a new life which is closer to that nirvāna.
One area in which a lot of popular Western conceptions of Buddhism go horribly wrong is understanding the end of suffering as meaning a state of comfort. But this is really just an extension of our false-obsession with comfort and convenience as the greatest things in life. So these Buddhism enthusiasts take the religion as a means of becoming comfortable, by meditating or spending less money on consumer goods, and by using Buddhist teachings as justification. If one had understanding of non-duality and impermanence they would know the opposite of suffering isn’t merely comfort, and moreover they would know comfort is a temporary state, which will be succeeded by the pain of not being comfortable. In fact, being too attached to the idea of comfort would be a disastrous detour from the path to nirvāna and could leave one worse off.
In Buddhist cosmology there are six major realms of life, most of which are located on Jambudvīpa, the great world-continent of humanity and other animals. Achieving nirvāna is most possible for mankind because they already exist in a kind of balance between the heaven and hell realms. A human could become liberated in one lifetime, or move down or up in the cosmic order. Downward, one could be reborn into a lower station or caste (racial or class), or as an animal, an evil spirit, or in hell. Moving upward, one might become higher caste, or a god or a demi-god in the holy mountains, or achieve nirvāna and become totally liberated from death-rebirth cycle.
One’s conditions of rebirth are contingent upon their karma, which means “action” in Sanskrit but in actually refers to a broader cause-and-effect system. Based on one’s actions of body, speech, and mind (or intention), he accumulates good or bad karma (in addition to karmacarried over from unknowable past lives). Karma is generated constantly throughout one’s life, and determines  lifespan, quality of life and events in life. This doesn’t mean that generating good karma is the ticket to a better life across the board, as karma from past lives can still have an impact. Dying with bad karma leads to a regressive reincarnation while good karmaleads to a progressive reincarnation—or it should unless bad deeds of past lives were bad enough to cancel out any good of the current life.
The implications of a karmic world as opposed to the world of anthropomorphic gods are massive, and too much to deal with here, but suffice to say a world in which our stations are given to us by the choices of our pasts (in the broadest sense)  rather than from a top-down source of authority seems to me an archaeo-Darwinian conception of cosmic order. And karmicreincarnation, while at first a strange notion to Western man, is not actually that unthinkable either given how the Semitic religions followed by most of mankind, such as Christianity, believe in bodily resurrection of the faithful to live in communion with the creator god and among some sects damnation in a hell realm as punishment for earthly sins. That certainly bears a strong similarity to Buddhism. And thinking Darwinianly, are we not reincarnated in our descendants, who will carry expressions of at least some of our genetic material for all their lives, just as we carry that of our ancestors? Reincarnation is thus more real than resurrection from this perspective.
Lastly there are some practical issues concerned with achieving nirvāna. It is the teachings of the Buddha, or dharma, which lead to awakening from samsara, the death-rebirth cycle. Dharma is another Sanskrit word, but there is no single rendering into English. “Cosmic law and order” is one possible interpretation, and sometimes the expression buddha-dharma is used for clarity. Now of course, the Buddha no longer exists in a way we can learn from him personally, which means the buddha-dharma must be conveyed some other way. This is where the concept of the bodhisattva comes in, often understood to be a Buddhist analogy to the the Christian saint. This is partially true if one limits their category of Christian saints to the evangelists, such as St. John or St. Patrick. A bodhisattva is a great teacher who is yet to reach enlightenment, and teaches other the dharma necessary to liberate themselves. Upāya, or “skillful means,” refers to the liberative technique used by the bodhisattva so that his student(s) can understand the dharma.
Because of karmic differences between all living beings as a result of their accumulated karma over all lifetimes, there is no single way to perfectly teach the dharma so that it is comprehended and leads to awakening. A bodhisattva needs a deep understanding of karma in order to teach others the dharma so that they may understand it, based on their own circumstances. Recalling the Christian evangelist-saints, some are believed to have used miracles to teach the Gospel, the Good News. Others, such as St. Patrick, had what a Buddhist would call upāya—consider the shamrock used to explain the triune god to illiterate peasants so that they might “be saved” in Jesus Christ. Was that not a skillful means of conversion? To this day the shamrock remains a symbol of Christianity in Ireland almost 2000 years later…
Much of Buddhism (and other Dharmic religions) is very fanciful and miraculous sounding to the postmodern ear, and so we cannot in good faith take most of it as anything more than allegorical of some eternal truth being expressed in a particular way shaped by the space, time, and society it flows from. But my intentions above in providing this survey of Buddhism were not to convince you of the truth of all of Buddhism or that you should adopt it—rather I sought to explain the basic concepts as I understand them so that you might understand them (or my understanding of them).

Skillful Means as Skillful Memes

I think the concepts of skillful means and teaching others so that they might achieve enlightenment are very important, and that Buddhism frames them in a way that can deeply resonate with people. For those of us involved in White  nationalism and the Alt-Right, the value and importance of the war of ideas, metapolitical warfare, is tantamount. It is necessary to teach people our truths—truths about race, sex, society, culture, and the fate of the West—and to skillfully do so with finesse and impact. We embrace whatever methods that we’ve been furnished with or seek out innovative ways of using them, with the goal of converting people to our cause—the global liberation of our race from suffering under hostile occupation. From Twitter, to comments sections, to naive reporters, to printers and fax machines, we turn no vehicle of communication away.
The movement has grown tremendously over the last year, owing in no small part to the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, and the effective use of him as a springboard for our message. His abrasive style, nationalistic fervor, and paternal-authoritarian ethos approach the  kind of sovereign power that would be necessary to achieve victory over our enemies, which terrifies them. His entrancement of the media through 4D chess has brought us ancillary spotlight, as highly-trafficked media outlets broadcast our unfiltered propaganda into the ether. They assume they are merely drawing attention to “evil racist Trump supporters” in an attempt to discredit him, but in practice they are broadcasting our memes. They cannot bring themselves to suppress the Truth, for it shocks them so much after years of dormancy.
What has enabled the substantial growth of the Alt-Right and nationalism are skillful memes, our skillful means in the form of crafting quality propaganda ideas and images which can be consumed and forwarded across the screens and minds of the people. I was quoted in the New York Times earlier this year about the glorious liberative technique of our skillful memes:
Take it from the alt-right bloggers themselves. The movement is “winning the meme war,” an alt-right blogger calling himself Lawrence Murray wrote last month.
I, a humble effortposter, having worked for our cause scarcely a year, had his name and prose ascended to the heights of American journalism, through no more efforts than I would have expended any other day on any other content I write.
And I was not alone. We have had a number of successes reported in the mainline press, which seem to transcend ordinary explanations for a movement that largely does not exist outside of social media and bars. From outlets covering the term “Alt-Right” (which has 15,000 results on Google News up from virtually none last year and its own Wikipedia page), to getting (((establishment climbers))) to identify themselves on social media using the triple parentheses from the taken-down Coincidence Detector plugin for Google Chrome, to the Tay AI controversy, to the spread of the #cuckservative meme, to Donald Trump retweeting a stylized portrait of himself as Pepe the Frog, the memes have prevailed.

And that is when things get interesting. When we know that the memes have taken on a superhuman will of their own that simply cannot be controlled. When we have entered the realm of meme magick, the occult world of metapolitical subversion. That is when we know we have born witness to an incarnation of the ancient Egyptian frog god of chaos, Kek, who expresses himself in our time to the youth of nation through meme magick, in the avatar of Pepe the Frog.

Pepe as an Avatar of Kek, the Source of Meme Magick

esoteric-kekism-10
An early depiction of Pepe in black-and-white.
The story of Pepe the Frog begins in 2005, when he was merely a anthropomorphic frog created by American cartoonist Matt Furie. Pepe appeared in a comic book called Boy’s Club, which depicted the life of four NEET roommates. He became a popular meme on a certain imageboard and was later taken up by normies on blogging platform associated with intersectional feminist basketweaving.
Because Pepe was humorous, people would reply “kek” to images they enjoyed, with “kek” itself being a meme-ish way of saying “lol” that derives from the orcish race of World of Warcraft. Pepe, of whom there are endless variations and meme mutations both common and rare, received tremendous keks from the people across the world wide web. But many of those who had taken up Pepe as their meme were idolators and vile normies.

An Atlantic Centurion original Pepe.
Thankfully, the trve right launched a campaign to retake Pepe from the heretical normies and restore him to his chanological birthplace as a chaotic and politically incorrect meme. The big moment came during the Republican primaries, when Trump retweeted a Pepe version of himself, which only made our enemies even more flustered. At this time, Pepe had already become known as a “nazi frog meme” that #frogtwitter users and members of the Alt-Right were using to spread propaganda and troll leftists and Jews.
Olivia Nuzzi from the Daily Beast, who our goys have trolled on Twitter, wrote an article about a single fucking Trump tweet in May called “How Pepe the Frog Became a Nazi Trump Supporter and Alt-Right Symbol.” She quotes @JaredTSwift at length:
“In a sense, we’ve managed to push white nationalism into a very mainstream position,” he said. “Trump’s online support has been crucial to his success, I believe, and the fact is that his biggest and most devoted online supporters are white nationalists. Now, we’ve pushed the Overton window. People have adopted our rhetoric, sometimes without even realizing it. We’re setting up for a massive cultural shift.”
Many keks were had by the Alt-Right when this article was published. And it was not the only of its kind. Now millions of normies knew that Pepe did not belong to them, that he was a property of the nationalist right and untouchable as it would destroy their status-siganling ability if they associated with him. Pepe had trascended the normies.
esoteric-kekism-3
Kek in human form, right.
So how does this become esoteric? Well, Kek is also an Ancient Egyptian pagan god. He is one of the eight primordial deities of the Old Kingdom, a god of darkness representing the unknown and chaos that come before the light. Moreover, in his male form he is depicted as a frog or a man with the head of a frog. Now, no one deliberately made the kek-yielding Pepe into Kek; it just kind of arouse out of the ether, which is what makes it so interesting. If one acknowledges the notion of cyclical time believed by the non-Semitic religions of the world, one can understand that the nationalist Pepe meme is a return of Kek the chaos-bringer, who may well represent Kalki the Destroyer, bringer of the end of the Dark Age.

Trump’s projected 1488 delegate count before the Republication National Convention. Praise Kek!
Kek is the deity of chaotic meme magick, which is a form of metapolitical prayer and will-to-power. Metapolitics is the process of trying to change the culture and values of a society as opposed to pure political activism. And Pepe is a modern-day icon of Kek, who shitlords project their wishes unto and send icons of into the digital ether.
Memes are in their original definition things or phrases people believe in. So meme magick, essentially, is the repetition of memes enough to change the memes that other people believe in, or memeing something into reality. The meme becomes a mantra, something chanted to generate karma.
The explosive growth of Pepe, his association with the nationalist right, and his estrangement from the normies solidified his place in the esoteric tradition. The normies had tried to seize upon this avatar of Kek as a source of mindless and indifferent entertainment, but Kek reasserted himself as on the side of Truth and liberation through the chaos of meme magick. Thus, Pepe became inaccessible to the normies, for in rejecting the Truth they had rejected Kek, and could no longer try to lay claim to a “nazi frog meme.”

Kek as the Bodhisattva of Aryan Nirvāna

esoteric-kekism-1
What Kek does for us, should we offer our voices and our keystrokes to him, is bless us with the tempered chaos of meme-upāya—skillful memes—to spread our ideas among our people. These ideas we spread are the kek-dharma—the redpill if you will— and the teachings necessary to understanding the world and achieving our rightful independence in it. Kek manifests himself to us in the avatar Pepe, a bodhisattva, a great spirtual teacher of the truth and wisdom of national liberation through the application of meme magick. With his meme-upāya, Kek teaches us how karma generated by memes as a mantra will help us to achieve liberation. Liberation means an end to mosaic samsara—the cycle of death and rebirth which destroyed the Roman Empire, collapsed the Holy Roman Empire into a spiral of sectarian violence from which it never recovered, and devoured the Third Reich. And this cycle continues through the ongoing invasion of Europe by the third Semitic monotheism, Islam.
esoteric-kekism-4
How Aryan Nirvāna feels.
Only by understanding the kek-dharmacan the goyim realize complete and total Aryan Nirvāna, Aryan liberation, which is brought about by the creation of the karmic nation.
Free of mosaic samsara, the karmic nation will reject the psychological terrorism of third-worldism (ethno-masochism and xenophilia), and be a place where the glorious deeds and memories of our ancestors can be restored and their will-to-power reincarnated into our descendants. No more will racial suicide be spoken of as a noble ideal in a state governed by those with meme-upāya,  where the kek-dharma has achieved its rightful place as the acknowledged truth and cosmic order, in a karmic nation.
The karmic nation, by continuing the archaeo-Darwinian work of rebirth into higher forms approaching total perfection and liberation from suffering, will allow us to forge our people into Übermenschmaterial. Such will be the path to complete liberation, Aryan Nirvāna.
esoteric-kekism-5
Meme magick as foretold 4000 years ago.
It is the Kek the Bodhisattva who can teach our people these truths, if we are willing to listen and to commit ourselves to the generation of meme magick through karmic morality and through the mantra of memes. By refusing to cuck and by rejecting the foul mindsets of our invaders and terrorizers, we will move the nation away from its suffering under the pains of hostile occupation, and closer and closer to its final rebirth. If instead, our people cuck and adopt the foul mindsets, they will generate not Aryan karma but further mosaic samsara.
The trve power of skillful memes is to meme the karmic nation into reality, the process of meme magick. By spreading and repeating the meme mantra, it is possible to generate the karma needed for the rebirth of the nation.
esoteric-kekism-7
Understanding the kek-dharma through meme-upāya is the only escape from the Cave.
The manifestion of the karmic nation will be possible only through the birth of Men against Time, of whom there will be more and more as the kek-dharma spreads, through the relentless application of skillful memes and of righteous adherence to the kek-dharma, which as I have said will generate karma. When our people are filled with the Lightning and the Sun, when they possess both meme-upāya and the kek-dharma, the coming of the Aryan Nirvāna will be at hand and the karmic nation shall be unstoppable.
Praise Kek, the bringer of chaos and skillful memes. Bless us with the meme-upāya to make the karmic nation a reality
Hail Victory and Aryan Nirvāna.
