Perspective

Kraut And Tears

There’s been some e-drama going down. I mean, when isn’t there e-drama brewing, though? Could you imagine the Alt-Right without the drama?

I sure can’t.

And this story is actually somewhat interesting.

Ever hear of Kraut and Tea? He’s some Anglo/German/Jewish guy living somewhere in Europe, making videos attacking race realism, but also critiquing SJWs. In other words…

You know all those faggots on youtube who think they’re redpilled edgy for criticizing Religion of Cuck™ and blue-haired feminists? That’s the “”skeptic community””. aka “le radical centrists”. You know the types. Sargon and his ilk. No one really gave a shit about these fags when they were just focusing on their low-hanging-fruit (bitching at le SJWs for hours a day) but then they started getting butthurt when white nationalism was growing in popularity, so they’ve tried going after us to remain relevant. And it’s backfiring spectacularly. – /pol/ anon

Why bring this up?

Well, because a lot is at stake. The Alt-Lite or the Skeptics as they call themselves are bigger than us in terms of viewer counts, sub counts and that sort of thing.

Sucks, but it’s true.

But why is this? Well, there are two factors at play. The first one is good. Lots of people are turned off by the antics of the militant left and look out there for another option, another narrative, someone who speaks out against their insanity. Both the Alt-Right and the Skeptics offer that.

However, their take is much easier to stomach.

Why? Well because Skeptics ™ decry all identity politics and demand that we return to some golden era of being enlightened atomized individuals. I assume that this is America circa-1990 or something. They basically say that the SJWs are bad, and that we’re just as bad because we also practice group identity politics only for White people.

It’s a nice little cop-out of addressing the real problems. Sargon, the biggest skeptic of them all in particular likes to hammer home this point and calls it “horseshoe theory.”

Sargon cannot debunk this meme.

To his credit, Sargon debated Jared Taylor, but was absolutely defeated.

And it seems like he never really absorbed JT’s arguments and just kept on keeping on. In fact, none of these Skeptics seem capable of debunking any of our arguments, so they have to resort to leftist tactics.

Meanwhile, meme-mockery is out preferred tactic.

Now, it turns out that Kraut and his crew kept a hitlist of Alt-Right personalities on Youtube that he planned to unleash “reckoning” on. That included doxxing, harassment and flagging their videos.

Is this important?

Well, yes.

This “community” is at odds with us and it competes for the same intellectual space as us. They serve as gatekeepers for hundreds of thousands of impressionable people – or rather as speed bumps along most thinking, disgruntled peoples’ journey to us.

And you can see why people emotionally latch onto them. Caring only about “the individual” and decrying group identity sounds a lot like what we’ve been taught up to 2007 is the right thing to do. So, it’s falling back on familiar territory and feeling reassured that this is in fact, new and edgy ground-breaking stuff.

Incidents like the Kraut one should highlight to everyone here that we’re at war with this community whether we like it or not. He even coordinated with a NYT reporter who wants to dox right-leaning e-celebs. We know this from a leaked discord recording.

And now we know who Kraut is too.

He has a very cringy post history on Atheist forums and on Reddit, showing interest in unusual kink sex, and actually seems to be ok with being cucked.

That’s his handle on many different forums.

The main reason why we are at odds with these people is that they are freaks we are competing over the same intellectual space and that’s why the conflict seems baked into the cake. They act as a gateway to us and not the other way around. They bleed fans and subscribers to us, and I have yet to hear a red-pilled Alt-Righter make the trip back over to them. It’s a one-way street, and they don’t like it. That’s why they keep trying to “take down” the Alt-Right. If we’re gone, they get to keep a monopoly on anti-SJW intellectual space.

In other words, this whole thing may seem like just shitposting and e-drama, but it is in fact actually important.

Worse, if one of theirs gets red-pilled by the Alt-Righters in the comments of their videos or something, they punish any deviation from the narrative.

This happened with a Youtuber named Rage Against Storm. She broke ranks and made a video promoting race realism that went semi-viral. This prompted Kraut and the other skeptics to dox her out to her employer and get her fired.

These people are not our friends. They feel threatened by us and now they’re starting to lash out.

Worse, none of them have anything interesting to say. And I can’t stand listening to pompous faggots with British accents pretending to be intellectuals. If you can, you should start taking T-injections, stat. Just take a giant needle full of Testosterone and jam it in your thigh and repeat until you can think straight again.

These milquetoast posers are unlistenable and useless.

Incident after incident like the one surrounding Kraut continue to pile up around these cancerous personalities. In all cases, we find out that they are somehow sexually, mentally or ethnically deficient in some way that affects their thinking.

It’s not even worth debating them in good faith anymore. And we won’t have to for long. They’re at each others throats over the leaks now. Disgusting details about all these freaks are coming out.

This guy used to be the second in command of Kraut’s group or something like that.

They got far, but in the end, we get to put our feet up and watch their entire community of freaks implode.

Attacking “es-jay-doubleyous” doesn’t make you anything special anymore. Do you understand that, radical centrists?

Your days are over.

There’s no holding back White Identity any longer.

Get with the program or get out.

The funniest thing about these “Skeptics”, who are just the 2017 edition of bow tie and fedora professional atheists, is that they themselves behave exactly like a cult. The reputation of the guru/preacher (in this case Cuck and Low-T) is what is most important, both for his congregation and himself. Truth, ideas do not matter. Protecting the guru’s image and suppressing unwanted ideas are what’s important. They, like Scientology and other such cults, have no problem doxing, harassing, threatening people. If these weirdos had an an ounce of self awareness they would realize that they are in fact a cult.… Read more »

The alt lite is the gate-way into alt Right no questions asked. We are threatening the existence of the alt light because, (as we do with libshits) we completely and factually disprove what they “stand for”. It will eat it self alive, if anyone had half a brain they’d jump ship now. Great article.

Kraut brought everything he thought was needed to drive the Alt-Right from a public arena: scientifically-illiterate arguments, unethical tactics, moral self-righteousness, etc. He just forgot that, in practice, you also need the ‘magic ingredients’ of government repression, massive corporate funding and flagrantly biased media coverage. Let this be a lesson to others: if your shitty cuck ideology is not an official client of the governing class, then best to keep it far away from embarrassing altercations with us.

Kraut & Low T was NEVER an Alt Liter, he was, and is, a follower of the one true faith- communism. He has always aligned himself with various insane, radical communists online and off.
The YouTube alliance w/ the so-called, “Skeptic” community was merely one of convenience to build his channel and make money.
He only hates those dirty Muslims because they made a lie out of the fantasy tales, that the Neoliberal Socialists had spoonfed him as a boy in Germany. LOL.

Civic nationalism becomes a scourge after it outlives its usefulness, which is supposedly a primer for race/sex realism. America did not invent this type of half-cucked governance priding itself on decoupling ethnocentrism from its bedrock, Europe did. Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein could all easily be called Germany. Same deal with Belgium (France/Holland) and Transnistria/Moldova (Romania), and probably other fake countries that have been the seen of countless bloodshed…and for what? -Just to be different from the mainland and its people.

Libertarianism was always about white identity by other means – free association i.e. segregation/secession/revolution.

What do you think ‘muh free markets’ and ‘bankster wars’ meant?

Remember the Ron Paul newsletters? Remember AIPAC banning Ron Paul and Rand Paul? Remember Ron Paul naming the Jew in front of Congress? Remember ‘End (((The Fed)))’?

Come on. Most of us oscillated for years between identifying with anarcho-capitalism and outright fascism even before the Alt-Right because the overlap is not even debatable.

Vlad+Impaler

That’s all true. But there’s also overlap between AL and AR. Pushing back against white guilt, rejecting multiculturalism, highlighting migrant crimes against natives, drawing attention to the media’s anti-white agenda… the list goes on. The sad truth is direct confrontation of the JQ can be too costly for public figures and is guaranteed to ruin their livelihood. So I can understand if someone like Watson addresses the (((media)))’s anti-white agenda without directly calling out Jewish subversion. People like him still do important work and don’t deserve our scorn. Every normie who listens to Watson and Molyneaux is well on his… Read more »

Unbelievable that this Sargon guy called Democrats “unwitting racists.” He must be absurdly naive, willfully blind, or back-of-the-woodshed stupid. Democrats were racists when they supported the KKK to get votes, they are racists now supporting BLM for votes, and they will be racists in the future when they support La Raza for votes. Racism has always been a favorite tool of the Democrats. They have not changed for over 100 years: they have only switched races to be racist against.

Charles

First, there is a distinction between racial and racist. Second, everyone is racist to some decree. What makes one person “good” and another – such as the Democrats – “bad” is how they use racial identity and racism. Democrats use them as a weapon to accumulate power and wealth, to the detriment of others and in ways that cause significant harm and suffering, including emotional and very real physical pain from the very real violence of the Left. The alt-right identifies racial charactistics not as a weapon or to divide, but as a way to find common ground. One point… Read more »

It would be ideal if the alt lite ceased to exist.
For now, we can only look at the positive. Those who make it to the alt lite, continue to seek the truth and come to our side, are the very high level men we need. They have proved themselves worthy, in my opinion.

The rootless tree always dies and so will the alt lite and their deception peddling cucks. The gods are on our side.

This shows why the skeptics like Steven Pinker and Michael Shermer want to prop up the reputation of the 18th Century’s Enlightenment – in other words, these allegedly “modern” thinkers believe in the pseudoscience of a quarter-millennium ago, before we learned about evolution, genetics, thermodynamics and human biodiversity, and before we developed intelligence testing and statistics to make sense of human differences.

I legitimately respect hardcore commies more than centrists.

Romanticism was partly a Dark Renaissance. If the theme of Renaissance was the return of classical radiance after a long dark barbarian winter, one strain of Romanticism was about unearthing of the primal soul of barbarian Europe. Its appeal was a reaction to the traumas of Industrial Revolution. The rise of science and technology in the Renaissance and later the Enlightenment hadn’t threatened the World of Man. Prior to full-blown Industrial Revolution, science was an idea in the minds of men, and technology was firmly in the hands of men.

I actually think people on the alt-light have potential. In my experience, alt lighters believe western civilization and American culture are good and must be preserved.

The extreme center (thank Greek anarchists for the term) is less trustworthy from the far left… The centre has proven itself the completely worthless political position from its to its inevitable end. All this has to do with its complete lack of understanding considering politics and its meta-physical connection with pain (consider the Greek or the German meaning here that also incorporates struggle, besides the unpleasant sensation). In short the center lacks any will to experience pain, subsequently this results to a nullified will to live.

Why did you post a video of Jared Taylor? He’s stated publicly (look it up) that Orientals are superior to whites in almost “every way”. How does that place him on our side? Also, one of his best friends – a white man – is married to a Chinese woman. After banging her like a junkyard dog, she popped out three of four mongrels. And yet, this white man (he’s well known in Taylor’s circle) is “admired” by so many cucked alt-righters. We need to jettison these kinds of traitors.

Is there more to your complaint? Can you not look at the basic bones of a society and see the superior elements and the inferior? Many Westerners love the general orderliness of some (not all) East Asian countries. Where this orderliness is tarnished in those societies it is often so as it is in our own – over crowding, migrant populations, and ill fitting neighbours being moved in. It’s difficult to measure, but the modern Chinese are still overwhelmingly majority Chinese in thought, attitude and appearance, and the Japanese are so still Japanese.

Jared Taylor and Paul Kersey are experts on the Negro Question, just as Kevin MacDonald is an expert on the Jewish Question. Do you expect your biology teacher to also teach you French or physics? Everybody has their own domain, but they all rendezvous under the curriculum of white nationalism.

Jared Taylor is a strategic thinker, from what I can observe. I follow Amren and have watched nearly every public appearance JT makes. He makes use of shifting talking points. Can’t really be sure how far he’d go with racial purity ruling on society but judging from his friendship with Sam Dickson I’d say he’s firm on European features being well grounded into promotion in the ethno-state.

I think you fail to appreciate the fact that some people will still fall in love despite appreciating the reality of race. If race realism is understood, and not suppressed, the mixing will be limited, but nothing will ever stop SOME amount of mixing. And where do you draw the line? Are English not allowed to mix with Armenians? I think it is better to affirm race realism than to artificially suppress race mixing. The vast majority of people will still mate within their race.
