Anthony Weiner sexted busty brunette while his son was in bed with him

Oy gevalt! What will the goyim say?

It’s time this guy put his talents to work making movies exploring the intersectionality of lust and politics.

Is Anthony Weiner a sex addict? The definition of “addiction” I use is that your brain chemistry is messed up so you don’t make good decisions. Is Anthony Weiner making good decisions with relation to online flirting? It doesn’t look that way. So “addiction” might be a useful concept. It does not matter to me, nor should it to Anthony, if “sex addiction” is an addiction like alcoholism. What matters is if the concept promotes the use of tools that help one lead a better life.

I find 12-Step programs a useful too for building a better life for myself. They help dim cravings that drove me to make bad decisions.

New York Post reports:

This is baby-sitting — Anthony Weiner-style.

While his wife, Huma Abedin, travels the country campaigning for Hillary Clinton, the disgraced ex-congressman has been sexting with a busty brunette out West — and even sent her a lurid crotch shot with his toddler son in the picture, The Post has learned.

The stay-at-home cad shot the revealing photo while discussing massage parlors “near my old apartment” shortly after 3 a.m. on July 31, 2015, a screenshot of the exchange shows.

Weiner was clearly aroused by his conversation with the 40-something divorcee when he abruptly changed the subject.

“Someone just climbed into my bed,” Weiner wrote.

“Really?” she responded.

Weiner then hit “Send” on the cringe-inducing image, which shows a bulge in his white, Jockey-brand boxer briefs and his son cuddled up to his left, wrapped in a light-green blanket.

“You do realize you can see you[r] Weiner in that pic??” the woman wrote.

Moments after forwarding the photo, Weiner freaked out over the possibility he had accidentally posted it publicly — just as he did during the infamous episode that forced him to resign from Congress in 2011.

“Ooooooh . . . I was scared. For half a second I thought I posted something. Stop looking at my crotch,” Weiner wrote back.

“Whatever. You did it on purpose,” she replied.

“O I see you thought you posted on your TL [public timeline] not DM [direct message]. S–t happens be careful,” she added.

The object of Weiner’s affections is his polar opposite politically: a self-avowed supporter of Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association who’s used Twitter to bash both President Obama and Clinton.

NEW YORK TIMES: Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin to Separate After His Latest Sexting Scandal

Huma Abedin, the wife of the former Representative Anthony D. Weiner, announced on Monday that the couple were separating in the wake of a report that Mr. Weiner had been involved in another sexting scandal.

Mr. Weiner, who resigned in 2011 after it was revealed he had been sending lewd messages and photos to random women online, apparently deleted his Twitter account on Monday after The New York Post reported that he had exchanged sexual messages with an unidentified woman last year.

The initial scandal destroyed his political career and strained his marriage to Ms. Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton.

On Monday, Ms. Abedin said in a statement: “After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”

Trump, Hillary, & the Alt Right

Greg Johnson describes himself as anti-Semitic and a Zionist. He wants Jews to get out of his country and to go to their own country.

I am not at all persuaded that people like Greg Johnson want to slaughter Jews and non-whites. They realize that such mass killings would be dispiriting. Such white nationalists want to expel non-whites and there is a big moral difference between expelling and killing.

As a Jew, I don’t find it nearly as threatening to deal with people who want to dispel my people as opposed to people who want to kill my people.

Different peoples have every right to fight for their own countries and to expel those who are not a good fit.

Jews have been expelled from many countries and lived to daven another day. If America does not work out for us, we can all move to Israel.

Greg Johnson wrote before Hillary’s speech:

I am a White Nationalist, and I want Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States. Trump, however, is not a White Nationalist. He is a civic nationalist. But he supports policies consistent with White Nationalism, most importantly halting and reversing illegal (and primarily non-white) immigration, stopping Muslim immigration, and instituting economic protectionism and an America-first foreign policy.

I want what Trump wants, but Trump does not want what I want. He wants to make America great again. I want to make America white again. I like Trump’s policies not as ends in themselves, but as possible steps in that direction. In short, my endorsement of Trump only goes one way. The fact that I like his policies does not mean that he would like mine.

So if Mr. Trump were to be asked, “What do you think of the endorsement of notorious White Nationalist Greg Johnson?” I would hope that he would say something to this effect:

“If White Nationalists support my efforts to make America great again, that is to their credit. I want their money, votes, and good wishes. But their endorsement of my policies does not imply my endorsement of their policies. We have different political philosophies and goals.”

And that would be that.

But political reality is not so tidy. The Democrats and the press are anxious to tie Mr. Trump to the “Alternative Right,” which includes White Nationalism, because they hope it will scare voters. Certain Alt Rightists are happy to cooperate with them because they are looking for publicity. And Mr. Trump has not been particularly deft in deflecting the efforts of either group.

I believe that Mr. Trump’s views on immigration have been influenced by Ann Coulter’s Adios America. And one influence on Coulter’s book is clearly the immigration restrictionist movement which includes VDare.com, which has been around a lot longer than the Alt Right, but which clearly falls under that umbrella.

But I doubt Trump knows or cares about the pedigree of such ideas. Nor should it matter. The only thing that matters is whether these ideas are true. And it is true that immigration restriction is good for America, whether you are a White Nationalist like me or a civic nationalist like Trump.

But as much as we would love to influence Trump, as soon as the Alt Right came on his radar, his campaign reportedly blacklisted contact with all Alt Right figures.

There is no relationship between Trump and the Alt Right, just a one-way man-crush.

But both Leftists and Alt-Right publicity hounds have selfish interests in proclaiming spurious connections. And American voters are stupid or naive enough to believe them. Which worries me, because this election could be really, really close, and the Alt Right canard might put Hillary Clinton in the White House.

But I really want Mr. Trump to win, so I have been declining invitations from American mainstream media outlets to comment on Trump and the Alt Right, simply because I do not want to give aid to the lying press’ latest “gotcha” campaign. (I did give an interview on the Alt Right to a French Marxist writer, but unlike American journalists, she is a serious intellectual, and her angle has nothing to do with Trump.)

But now Hillary Clinton is preparing another “vast Right-wing conspiracy” speech linking Trump to the Alt Right. This is a sound strategy. Hillary Clinton has never gotten anywhere on her own merit. She owes everything to men. She would never have been senator, Secretary of State, or the Democratic nominee without her marriage to Bill Clinton. So it is natural for her to hope that Donald Trump will put her in the White House.

Hillary can’t run on her record, which includes supporting every foreign policy debacle of the last 15 years. She is both corrupt and incompetent. She lacks warmth and charisma. Her health is obviously failing. She could not even get the Democratic nomination without cheating. So how can she possibly win the presidency in an honest campaign?

Obviously, her campaign strategy is to limit her public exposure as much as possible and hope that Trump loses the election due to dishonest press coverage. However, as Ryan Faulk pointed out, Trump has recently adopted a more disciplined and scripted speaking style, which has disrupted the media’s “gaffe of the day” commentary cycle, so Hillary has been forced to come out of seclusion and press the attack herself.

Hillary is an intellectual lightweight, and so are her speechwriters, so she’ll probably just rehash the lazy-minded, slapdash research of American journalists and the shekel-grubbing hacks at the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

No, the Alt-Right has not arrived. No, the Alt-Right has not finally been taken seriously. The Alt-Right is simply being brandished like a swastika or a flaming cross to scare the goyim and to stigmatize a new and potent threat to liberalism and globalization.

But, as Aedon Cassiel argues, these kinds of attacks tend to backfire and promote the growth of the Alt Right and the Trump campaign. The speech probably won’t hurt Trump or help Hillary, but it will certainly send readers to Alt-Right websites, which is good for us.

So, if this is your first visit to Counter-Currents or any Alt-Right site, welcome. Let me show you around.

First of all, I don’t really like the term “Alternative Right,” which does not refer to a specific political philosophy but is instead a broad umbrella term referring to any tendency that rejects mainstream conservatism, no matter how different they may be in fundamental principles and political goals. I, however, have a very specific political philosophy and agenda, which is simply not compatible with a lot of Alt-Right tendencies.

I prefer to call myself a White Nationalist, because my goal is the creation of racially and ethnically homogeneous homelands for whites. (See Aedon Cassiel’s “Ethnonationalism for Normies” and my Frequently Asked Questions, Part 1.) White ethnonationalism is not compatible with either imperialism or civic nationalism, both of which are represented in the Alt Right.

I also call myself a New Rightist, because I reject the political strategies of inter-war European fascist movements in favor of a “metapolitical” strategy of deconstructing the reigning Leftist ideas and values and creating a new Right-wing intellectual and cultural hegemony. (See my “New Right vs. Old Right,” “On the Necessity of a New Right,” and “Hegemony.”) This approach is not compatible with either “Old Right” (fascist) revivalists or political mainstreamers, both of which are camps in the Alt Right.

Finally, I believe that whites will never regain control of our own destinies without understanding the role of Jewish power in our societies and then freeing ourselves from it, thus I am both an anti-Semite and a Zionist, since I believe that Jews belong in their own homeland, not in ours. (See my “Reframing the Jewish Question” and “White Nationalism and Jewish Nationalism.”) Obviously, this approach is not compatible with those represented by the Jews and philo-Semites in the Alt Right camp.

Of course the very vagueness of the term “Alternative Right” recommends it to a lot of people, who are not comfortable with taking such clear-cut positions. I don’t begrudge them such cover. Indeed, I am glad that they feel comfortable in this movement, and I will support it as long as it functions as a marketplace of ideas that allows me to reach intelligent and open-minded people searching for genuine alternatives to liberalism, multiculturalism, and globalization.

But the same vagueness also allows our enemies to play guilt-by-association games. Steve Bannon of Breitbart now runs the Trump campaign. Breitbart publishes Milo Yiannopolous, who has written positive things about the Alt Right and is loosely associated with it. Thus Bannon, and by extension Trump, are part of the same vast and sinister Right-wing conspiracy as Greg Johnson and David Duke. Yes, it is just that childish.

But luckily you have arrived at a place where we will not insult your intelligence. The Alt Right is not an ideology, in which all participants have a common set of principles. It is a debate about ideology, in which the participants share a common set of enemies but sharply disagree on basic principles and political goals. Unlike the political, academic, and media mainstream, the Alternative Right is a free debate, untrammeled by false sanctimony and Political Correctness. That’s why so many people find it downright addictive.

As an aid to further exploration, I wish to leave you with a desert island list of ten of my articles that can serve as a starting point for exploring White Nationalism and the New Right:

  2. White Extinction
  3. White Genocide

  5. The Slow Cleanse
  6. Why Conservatives Conserve Nothing
  7. In Defense of Prejudice
  8. The End of Globalization
  9. Money for Nothing
  10. Spend Yourself, Save the World

Welcome to the best neighborhood of the Alt Right.

THE RISE OF THE RADICAL RIGHT: THE ALT RIGHT NEOREACTION AND THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN

Jakub Jankowski writes:

Equality is bullshit. Hierarchy is essential. The races are different. The sexes are different. Morality matters and degeneracy is real. All cultures are not equal and we are not obligated to think they are. Man is a fallen creature and there is more to life than hollow materialism. Finally, the white race matters, and civilisation is precious. This is the Alt-Right.

– Millennial Woes

Hillary Clinton’s newest offensive against Donald Trump’s campaign involves the vilification of a political movement that until recently was reputedly hiding in the ‘far reaches of the internet’ from which ‘dark conspiracy theories’ are allegedly being forged. This denunciation was aimed at an increasingly popular congregation known as the ‘Alternative Right.’ This crowd was recently labelled as ‘Trump’s Shock Troops’ by the BBC in an overt reference to Nazi Germany, and as ‘white supremacists’ as well as ‘a paranoid fringe group’ by Clinton herself, during the speech she gave in Reno, Nevada. How close is Clinton to the truth – is the ‘Alt-Right’ really solely composed of racist, intolerant, neo-Nazis and of other non-kosher superficial labels? Warm, hot, cold!

The ‘Alt-Right’ is a term commonly thought to be coined by self-described ‘Identitarian’ Richard Spencer, founder of the ‘Alternative Right’ blog and president of the National Policy Institute. This, however, is not accurate, as the first person to coin the term in relation to developments within American politics was Paul Gottfried (although, admittedly, Richard Spencer popularised the term). Meanwhile, the movement itself is an amalgamation of all ‘alternative’ right wing views that are today considered heterodoxy. This means that the views of one person who considers himself to be part of the ‘Alt-Right’ can be, though do not necessarily have to be, radically different to another. These views can range from disillusioned libertarians who previously supported Ron Paul, but upon becoming ‘race realists’ have adopted cultural conservatism (more specifically, Hoppean Paleolibertarian views); to traditionalists; to ethno-nationalists; to European nationalists; to fascists; to ‘neo-nazi’ types who gleamingly partake in ‘Alt-Right’ discourse as it fits their racial and fascist agenda; to edgy teenagers and young adults who want to ‘troll’ liberal left types by gratuitous displays of right-wing rhetoric and create controversy. All these folks have their place in the Alternative church of the right. All of them have a use when combating ‘the Cathedral’, the ‘Alt-Right’ term for everything left-wing and mainstream, through many political dimensions. This philosophy is not quite as simple as Hillary makes it out to be in her speech, and contrary to popular opinion, is not just a rowdy mob of ‘hateful bigots.’ Although she is right about one part – it is a growing threat to the political status quo of the West.

Though many mainstream media outlets seem to imply that the popularity of the ‘Alt-Right’ arose through Trump’s campaign, their political thought was already present before Trump. In fact, they were the de facto precursor to Trump’s rise. It was the ‘Alt-Right’ that breached the membrane of obscurity into mainstream politics by breaking down the message and political thought of its forerunner philosophy (which we will get to later) into soundbites, memes, ironic humour, and simple educational infographics about race, culture, sex and IQ differences. It was the Alt-Right who discovered and chose Trump as their ‘mascot’ for this election, not the other way around (although, there are rumours of Trump’s campaign officials reading Alt-Right sites and even partaking in the discussion).

Despite the presence at some level of dissonance and incongruence in the multitude of ‘Alt-Right’ beliefs, which can cause division within the movement – often with harsh criticism and trolling of other ‘sections’ of the Alternative Right, with the more National Socialist inclined elements calling the Libertarians ‘lolbertarians’, and in return the National Socialists are called ‘Stormweenies’[1] – it is generally agreed that there are certain overarching ideals that all on the ‘Alt-Right’ subscribe to. These include: the disgust with politically correct culture; the recognition of cultural Marxism’s effect on western society; and the continued destruction of Occidental civilisation. This is what unites the various factions into the Alt-Right.

Indeed, the philosophical incompatibility between the separate groups seems to be disappearing, with the libertarians of the Alt-Right appropriating certain elements of fascism via the embracing of the former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet and twisting Hoppean thought. These libertarians enjoy making memes about ‘physical removal, so to speak’ (A reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s statement about the necessity to separate and remove ‘communists and democrats’ from a libertarian society), ‘free helicopter rides’ (Pinochet’s preferred method of executing communists), and ‘unleash the cops’ (a reference to Rothbards piece on ‘Right-Wing Populism’ where he proposes radical social and economic reforms). Alternatively, there are some libertarians who adopt more traditionalist Catholic beliefs: distributism, monarchism and aristocratic ideals…

Ethnic Nationalism

In contrast to civic nationalism, which espouses nationhood based on citizenship, the neoreactionaries define ‘nation’ in terms of race, civilisation, national identity. This is seen as a necessity in order to ensure the continuity of the race, ethnicity or nation.

In the case of the Alt-Right, the Americans have transfused the idea of ethnic nationalism based solely on white racial identity. Indeed, Americans have no other choice but to resort to white nationalism as they have no other European identity to which they can turn to; whether English, German, French, Polish, Irish, or other. None fits as the US is a melting pot of white identities, with many migrant waves arriving ever since its conception. The alleged difference between these waves and the current waves of immigration is that the ones who came before integrated into the American way of life, meanwhile many of the current ones are hostile, preserve their own identity and through the willingness of the liberal state, are eroding the core of Americanism.

“Most whites do not have a racial identity, but they would do well to understand what race means for others. They should also ponder the consequences of being the only group for whom such an identity is forbidden and who are permitted no aspirations as a group.”

– Jared Taylor

Why isn’t there something akin to the ‘Alt-Right’ in Britian and Europe?

There is, it’s just the Beeb and Grauniad haven’t reported on it. The Traditional Britain Group is the British equivalent of the American Renaissance but the current relative shortfall of the TBG in comparison to their American counterparts is not due to any kind of fault of the organisation itself, but rather, that Britain itself is not yet primed for the return of the real right. Arguably, the Traditional Britain Group, (many of whom are also part or affiliated with the Libertarian Alliance) and its members do not consider themselves part of the ‘Alt-Right’ – and rightly so; the Alternative Right is an almost exclusively American idea, while the Neoreaction is not. Nevertheless, there have been numerous ‘Alt-Right’ volk who attended the conferences or even gave speeches (think: Richard Spencer), and there should be no shame on the side of the TBG for associating or even affiliating with a growing popular crowd which espouses many of its tenets. Moreover, there are many other Britons who openly espouse Neoreactionary views, one such notable person is the Youtuber Millennial Woes, who is considered to be the hearth fire of the British Alt-Right, having recorded many commentaries on the movement and its beliefs. Let us also not forget that the milquetoast interpretation of the Alt-Right was largely being popularised by the infamous Breitbart journalist Milo Yiannopoulos, who should not entirely be shunned by the more radical elements on the Alt-Right. Indeed, he provides an outlet for the more down-to-earth Alt-Right and Trump sympathisers, whether it be through his university tours, the creation of the Young British Heritage Society which aims to fight leftism on campus and promote free speech, or through his constant mockery of feminism and the left.

On the European mainland, the most significant ideological counterpart is the French ‘Generation Identity’ a pan-European socio-political movement that started in France in 2002. The Identitarians finds their roots in the Nouvelle Droite – the European New Right, ancestor-philosophy of the Alt-Right. They describe themselves in their manifesto ‘We Are… Generation Identity’:

“Generation Identity is a fighting community which brings together young men and women from across French-speaking Europe… We call upon young people to raise their heads high: in the face of foreign riffraff, in the face of those who want to police our lives and thoughts, in the face of the homogenisation of nations, in the face of the tidal wave of mass immigration, in the face of a school system which hides the history of our nation from us to prevent us from loving it, in the face of a pretended coexistence which is becoming a nightmare…”

Is there a place for the left in the Alt-Right?

Yes and no. The left did have influence on the way the Alt-Right came about. The left-libertarian author Keith Preston was an early speaker at the American Renaissance and a contributor to the old Alternative Right blog. He penned his own left-anarchist critique of the Frankfurt School, and his own Anarcho-pluralism stance opposes mass-immigration. His leftism opposes the corporate state. His anti-imperialism and anti-interventionism means he lines up with the Alt-Right on foreign policy. The goals of the radical right and left were bound to meet at some point, for the fruitful benefit of both movements! This is not to say that there are many, if any at all, self-ascribed leftists amongst the Alt-Right, that would be an error by definition, yet the example needed to be pointed out.

The Fire Rises

Bain Dewitt writes: Many moons ago when Neoreaction was a fighting and fit force in the Twitterati, I would continually criticise NRx’ers for refusing to accept or espouse nationalism — and specifically White Nationalism — as the endpoint and practical upshot of their ideas. Neoreaction eventually disintegrated and became absorbed as part of the Alternative Right coalition because they were disparate collection of individuals with competing theories. Their institutional output is a series of critiques of modernity and comparisons with other social orders, namely monarchism, minarchism, aristocracy, and so on with a focus point of anti-egalitarianism. However the main currents of Neoreaction never progressed from being against democracy to being for a particular system or style of government, because they defined themselves as organized opposition.

Before one can conquer a state, one has to have a state-in-waiting. The metapolitical critique of electoral politics is that, in the word of Stephen Bannon, “politics is downstream of culture.” To us metapols, ideas must have a hegemony before they can rule securely from the ballot box. When ideas gain enough traction, those with a bias towards action will create political parties, and the parties will look after themselves. Snowflake liberalism has had a hegemony of ideas through the power of centralized mass media and historical forces. Wealth was created by a postwar economic boom, women were already in the workplace from two instigated world wars, and the emergence of a mass production consumer marketplace have drove the near-universal demand for “human rights,” alphabet gender spaghetti rights, and legally protected narcissism. No matter who you voted for, democratic liberalism got in.

Elections have been fought between the “progressive” left and the “conservative” right on the battlegrounds of who can appease the mainstream, and what the mainstream believed in. Politicians made and make entire consultancy careers by guesstimating how much social engineering the people want, and when. At no point has an electoral party effected a sweeping culture upheaval, but follow and bribe mass opinion and opinion formers. In cultural upheaval, opposition parties and individuals — Donald Trump amongst them, have been swept into publicity or power by articulating the cultural change that the establishment either has yet or refuses to acknowledge. The radicals seize power after the destruction of the establishment by being a throwing-forward of majority will. The only power radicals have comes from being the extreme expression of majority will, in a time when the majority finds its condition intolerable. This is why destruction of moderate-led stability and creation of intolerable conditions, Iraq and Syria, creates radicalism and “extremism” as the majority supports their traditional social order being preserved at all costs, and in order to survive it is forced to its most extreme, aggressive and most violent form.
