We here at the Daily Stormer have a strict policy of not attacking others in the pro-White movement. However, for the largest part of the online advocacy community, attacking others who are working for the exact same goals is a favorite behavior.
Recently, I defended the Hero Robert Ransdell from the attacks of RamZPaul, who, for no clear reason, denigrated and insulted Ransdell, going so far as to suggest he may be some type of secret agent and/or crypto-Jew. Following this, a writer at Alt Right, Colin Liddell, has attacked me for defending Ransdell, of course suggesting that I myself am some type of secret agent.
I sighed and sighed again.
I will start here by saying that I like the Alternative Right site, read it regularly, and have no issues whatsoever with Liddell’s materials. I also do not take issue with his person, as for me, his person is not relevant. What I am here taking issue with is only his attempts to break down the cohesion of the White movement by using low-level insults and paranoid theories.
The Framing of the Scenario
The apparent issue here is the divide between the likes of myself and Robert Ransdell, who are on the hardcore side of things, and the “soft” nationalist movement, which as a collective either
a.) genuinely believes that they are going to change the world and save White civilization by holding conferences and giving long-winded speeches that the vast majority of the population will never be interested in, or
b.) does not care that they will never be relevant on any type of scale, and engages in the intellectual circle-jerking for ego-related reasons.
Regrettably, these people have a desire to shut down anyone who disagrees with their approach, regardless of whether or not that person agrees completely with their end goals, and will use gross and deviant tactics to do so.
I believe this technical data needs to be out there. Though Jared Taylor has perhaps never done anything particularly original, he has served as a figurehead for a group of college-educated persons interested in addressing the obvious fact that Whites are fundamentally different from other races and should determine their own destiny.
I of course disagree with Taylor’s position on the Jew issue, but so does Liddel, who writes:
My belief is the common sense one that any group can and should be criticized for its collective behaviour, if that behaviour is adjudged or perceived to be a problem in some way. Examples: Black crime, Pakistan pedophile rape gangs, and, of course, all the evils that Whites are supposedly guilty of. Jews as a group should not be exempt from being called out for this of that attribute as it becomes apparent.
So, the entire disagreement then is on approach, and because of our differences in approach, Liddell felt it was a prudent and adult behavior to attack me and accuse me of being a secret agent.
Though I do not take issue with elitist conferences using big words to mock the low IQs and violent behavior of Blacks, writing book reviews about books only twelve people even ever heard of and thirty page essays about the effects of enlightenment ideology on collective European psychology, I am not so utterly foolish as to believe that this is ever going to result an any kind of change in the real world.
The question posed in my defense of Ransdell that Liddell did not respond to – a question none of these people will ever respond to – is: when in history have conferences and essays resulted in political revolution?
The answer, obviously, is “never.” You would think that people as smart as Liddell, who are able to haughtily mock the working class with college-level phrases and essays apparently purposefully designed to turn-off anyone with a life outside of intellectualism, would also be able to recognize the fact that without the working and lower-middle classes on their side, they are eventually going to be eaten alive by Negroes.
But this fact escapes them.
The Purpose of the Daily Stormer
I created this website with a definite and defined purpose. It is designed to serve as a hardcore front for the conversion of masses of people into a pro-White, Antisemitic ideology. At the same time, it is meant to cause a shift in the Overton Window, dragging the likes of RamZPaul and Colin Liddell closer to the center of the political spectrum.
Personally, I would rather be writing long essays about philosophical musings. I would like to write a revisionist history of of North American colonialism, based on source documentation I’ve acquired. Instead, I write a vulgar tabloid. I do not do this because I am unhinged and simply do not understand that the solution to our problems is more conferences and book reviews; I do it because from the standpoint of an intellectual who does care about changing the system, the only way to accomplish anything is by drawing the support of the masses.
And the way that the support of the masses is drawn is not a mystery.
The American propaganda of WWI and WWII was the most effective system of mobilizing people behind a cause in history. This cause was, in both instances, faked – Germany was never planning to invade the US, nor were they doing anything morally wrong. The narrative of the wars was a complete fantasy, and the intelligentsia of the time was painfully aware of this fact, yet this made little difference, given that the capitalist/Jewish elite was able to mobilize the people with vulgar propaganda.
It may be granted that right now, we have the truth on our side, whereas the Americans launching these wars did not, but the point is that the truth isn’t relevant to the masses – what is relevant is the ability to move people with imagery and emotion. This is something that the likes of AmRen and Liddell do not even attempt, as they believe it to be below them, and so this is the position that the Daily Stormer is serving, because we are not haughty intellectuals who care more about our own egos than actual political change, nor do we despise the common man, viewing him instead as the core of our social order.
Instead of understanding this, and recognizing we are comrades working for the same goals on different fronts, Liddell and others who attack me as “plebeian” presume that I am just some sort of Romper Stomper street thug character trying to stir up trouble. I am not certain if they are actually incapable of perceiving what it is that I am doing here, and that this has been thought through, or if they are just pretending to not understand because it is easier to disagree with the presentation itself than the ideological basis of the presentation.
To be explicit, the ideological basis of the Daily Stormer can be summed up thusly:
All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to. Consequently, the greater the mass it is intended to reach, the lower its purely intellectual level will have to be. But if, as in propaganda for sticking out a war, the aim is to influence a whole people, we must avoid excessive intellectual demands on our public, and too much caution cannot be exerted in this direction.
The more modest its intellectual ballast, the more exclusively it takes into consideration the emotions of the masses, the more effective it will be. And this is the best proof of the soundness or unsoundness of a propaganda campaign, and not success in pleasing a few scholars or young aesthetes.
The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding, through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and thence to the heart of the broad masses. The fact that our bright boys do not understand this merely shows how mentally lazy and conceited they are.
Once we understand how necessary it is for propaganda to be adjusted to the broad mass, the following rule results:
It is a mistake to make propaganda many-sided, like scientific instruction, for instance.
The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered. In this way the result is weakened and in the end entirely cancelled out.
Thus we see that propaganda must follow a simple line and correspondingly the basic tactics must be psychologically sound.
Liddell and the rest of these people could attempt to argue that the Daily Stormer is not properly carrying out these objectives, but that is not what they are arguing. They are instead arguing that there is no need for this type of material, and that people need to stick exclusively to long exposition about the IQ of Blacks, or the heavily technical explanations of the Jewish Problem offered by Kevin MacDonald.
Anyone who does something different is a secret agent.
Meanwhile, the enemy is making full use of emotional propaganda, not even attempting to make intellectual or fact-based arguments, and swaying the masses to their own side, over and over and over again.
I am not sure how any of this could be any more obvious than it presently is, to anyone with half a brain. It seems to me that if anyone should be accused of being a secret agent, it is people who deny basic, obvious realities and instead embrace demonstrably ineffective tactics while accusing others of secret agentism. But I don’t go around accusing people of being secret agents, because I am a grown adult, and prefer discussion of ideas to the exchange of insults.
In my mind, even if a person is a secret agent, they should be confronted on their ideas, as a secret agent’s goal would be to corrupt the ideological structure of the movement. Making such accusations is simply a base and lazy method to stifle open discussion.
Perhaps Liddell just isn’t as smart as he thinks he is, or maybe he just doesn’t care, and is angry that the likes of the Daily Stormer and Robert Ransdell are rocking the boat by actually drawing support from masses of people. Maybe Liddell is just too smart to understand the psychology of the masses, or maybe he just wants nationalism to remain a small private club. I don’t know and it doesn’t matter. His reasons are his own.
Whatever his thinking may be, however, it is clear from his statements that he would rather thwart any attempts to push the nationalist message into the mainstream than work for real change alongside people who share his stated goals of achieving self-determination for the White race.
From Where I’m Sitting
I am not doing this for ego. If my sole personal drive was my ego, I would not be running this site, and would instead be using my energy to get rich. I am involved in the nationalist movement because I desire to alter society to make it what I think it should be through political revolution, and I have taken the course which I believe is the most effective for accomplishing these ends.
As Liddell and the others who criticize this site and accuse me personally of being a secret agent so enjoy writing essays, I would invite them, in the future, to draw up a comprehensive explanation of why propaganda designed to target the masses is unnecessary. I would also be willing to do a podcast with Liddell or any other representative of the “stay the course and do exactly what we say or you are a secret agent” nationalist movement, and discuss exactly why it is that they believe that after decades of publishing all of these facts about the nature of racial differences, it is still only a minority who pay attention.
To close, I would just say that I would like to work with all of these people who attack me, and I do not hold grudges. I think RamZPaul produces effective material, as does Liddell. They serve important roles, just as I do, and my deepest desire is for a unified front among our people. I am willing to put aside any personal disagreements in order to accomplish this. I am also more than willing to take constructive criticism, if Liddell or any of his allies would like to rise above name-calling and weird accusations of secret agentism and discuss how we can do a better job than we presently are.
Right now, the Western world is collapsing, being destroyed by Jews and their hordes, and so it is that our ideas have never been more appealing. What a terrible shame it would be if we let personal egos result in the destruction of our race.
