I write about David McGowan, James O’Meara writes about David McGowan.
I start writing about A Nolen’s Crowley-MI6 connection articles, James O’Meara writes about Crowley-MI6.
There’s nothing on O’Meara old blog that suggests anything about espionage, fictional or real, but the more I write about it, the more he does. Not only does James O’Meara read this blog, although he’s probably not allowed to admit it, but so does Richard Spencer. I don’t mind, I don’t need credit. As Johnson would say, I want people to steal my ideas, I can’t give them away fast enough.
But, really, what is Counter Currents? Greg Johnson once attacked the Daily Stormer for their idiotic Nazi-shtick, and one of the CC posters rather hesitantly asked, well, Counter Currents is full of Nazi-shtick. Greg Johnson writes articles about what Hitler ate for lunch and how that made him fart a lot. Johnson constantly promotes Savitri Devi, the inventor of “esoteric Hitlerism” which is literally a religion based on Hitler. Many people have noted that Counter Currents has a lot of gay writers and is, essentially, a pro-gay site, but has anyone ever noticed that their Hitler/Nazi fetish is quite probably just that – a sexual fetish? It’s well know that a segment of the gay community sexualizes the Nazis and does BDSM-style role play as Nazi Stormtroopers.
Maybe Counter Currents can be explained as just that. The White Nationalism is just for show; it’s the Nazi sexual fetish that is the core of the project. Hunter Wallace once dug up a quote from Johnson posting on the neo-Nazi VNN site a rather homoerotic fantasy of living in a world run by Nazis.
Still, they do publish a lot of good material and James O’Meara’s “Queer Eye For The White National Guy” stuff is usually amusing and sometimes even informative. However, what is good about Greg Johnson’s writing is not unique, and what is unique is not good.
Johnson goes out of his way to attack “conspiracy theorists” which leads to him getting his geo-political analysis just wrong. For instance, while Johnson was wringing his hands about Islamic State, the better informed people were explaining that it’s not really an ideological movement, it’s a mercenary force, and the atrocity videos are often staged.
Well, of course, this is attacked by Johnson as a “conspiracy theory” until it becomes relatively acknowledged:
Then Johnson just ignores the story, pretends he never said it, and when the next false flag propaganda story comes out, he repeats the cycle: attacks the “conspiracy theorists,” gets proven wrong, and then pretends the whole thing never happened.
Does Johnson actually believe any of it? It doesn’t seem likely. He seems to aspire to be a right wing version of Noam Chomsky: pose as a dissident then use the pose to attack ideas that would actually go against the powerful. When you are dishonest, lying and hypocrisy are second nature. So, Johnson can hilariously attack the Daily Stormer for tying the White cause to a dead political movement while his entire site does exactly that.
It’s likely similar to how Johnson destroyed a once-promising website, the Occidental Quarterly. The Occidental Quarterly was on the way to becoming something like Radix Journal. When he was put in charge it all but died and then when he was fired, Johnson went on a tirade against Hunter Wallace who was apparently meant to be the replacement for Johnson. That is the origin of the Counter Currents website, in fact – no one would work with Johnson so he took his ball and bat and went home.
CC used to also promote the laughable “North West Front” which was, essentially, “live action role playing” meant to attract as much negative attention from law enforcement as possible. To show you how much of a joke it was, they even designed their own flag for their non-existent state. The guy behind it wrote a few novels and, at least the one that I read, was awful. What is it about right-wingers and their completely unbelievable female characters? The romance in the NWF novel honestly seemed to be written by someone who had never met an actual woman. Sure, I maybe be a sexist pig and a misogynist asshole, but I don’t think anyone could credibly accuse me of not, you know, actually interacting with women on a regular basis – sexually or otherwise.
9/11 isn’t exactly current events, even though there are still near-daily stories relating to the attacks even 14 years later. It’s interesting that other neo-Nazis, or “costume clowns” like we used to call them, are also anti-9/11 truth, for instance Chechar at “West’s Darkest Hour.” Like Johnson, what is good about Chechar isn’t unique, and what is unique about Chechar isn’t good. His site actually uses swastikas and idolizes the Nazis, but Chechar is the “homophobic” version to Johnson’s “homophile.” But really, it’s the same thing: Nazi fetishes, anti-9/11 truth, neo-con foreign policies (especially in the case of Chechar,) an obsession with Muslims (odd for Nazis, eh?)
All of these people first came to my attention on Hunter Wallace’s old OccidentalDissent site, they all came from there: Greg Johnson, Gregory Hood, Matt Parrott, Kievsky. Then the Greg Johnson incident blew the whole thing up and caused major tension for a while. Greg Johnson started attacking Hunter Wallace and Matt Parrott accused Hunter Wallace of stealing money from the website to go pay for Black hookers in the Bahamas.
I see that Matt Parrott now does religious-themed LARP-ing with that Matt Heimback guy and also writes for Counter Currents once in a while. Matt Parrott is also anti-9/11 truth. Heimback went from a promising student activist to a costume clown, dressing up in skinhead boots and sieg-heiling. Now, he poses as an orthodox Christian and “counter-protests” at Slut Walks.
This core group from the old OD site – they are like straight out of Central Casting. They just get the tone wrong consistently, every single time. Like that old saying, if they were just making mistakes they would make a mistake in our favor at least occasionally.
Homosexual and homophobic Nazis, militia fantasies complete with ill-fitting costumes and fantasy flags, public harassment of liberal white women having nothing to do with race, and pretending to be religious fanatics. It’s like it’s meant to turn off normal white people, isn’t it?
I will tell you who is doing it right: Radix and Richard Spencer, Kevin MacDonald and TOO, and Bob Whitaker and the BUGsters. They are effective spokespeople for the cause.
The rest are play-actors and costume clowns.
