Most DEFINITELY not Alt-Right

I have no idea why anyone thinks this clown is even remotely a threat to anyone except himself. Although I suppose it’s possible you might actually pull something laughing at him.

The alt-right should be in favor of banning of all video games, and actually we should go further and we should make all video games feminist, extreme feminism, so basically the video game will be you have to ask permission to kiss girls and they just say no all the time. That’s like you keep going up levels and you keep not getting laid. That should be the only video games allowed, and basically it’s a it’s just a you know you have heroic versions of purple-haired SJWs conquering Nazis and things like that.

So it we basically want these video games to turn off as many young men as possible so that they will turn on to something that’s actually real and I’m actually serious about this.

Speaking as a professional multi-platinum-selling game designer, don’t quit your day job. Assuming, of course, that you’ve ever actually had one.


A satanic racial imperialist

In case you ever had any doubts about my complete rejection of Richard Spencer or why I identified him as a Fake Right anti-nationalist, this video should resolve them for you. This is a partial transcript of ‘The Richard Spencer Show: Moonraker’ with Mark Brahmin on HEELTURN

RICHARD SPENCER: This is our view of the world, this is what we do for you now, and this is our view for the future. At some point we need to put forth a legitimate vision and a legitimate platform, saying this is our answer to the world’s problems. I think there’s something to be said for such a vision.

CALLER: Ancient Greeks sacked cities and set fire to their homes. Modern paleocons say that there must be a homeland for all. They are gay. Nations rise and fall, we either live to colonize the stars or die honorably. Paleocons aren’t even right-wing.

RICHARD SPENCER: I basically agree with this criticism of what you could say is pan-nationalism. It’s almost like egalitarian nationalism, but it’s almost nationalism as egalitarianism. You know, every single little people will have an ethnostate homeland and we’ll all therefore kind of unify, or, you know, at least treat each other fairly, and kind of be unified, the friendship of peoples, you could say, and so on. I think there is something to be said for such a vision, and something at least rhetorically that we should call upon, and say that you have your ethnostate, this is what we want.

But as an actual ideology, I think it absolutely fails. This is not, this is simply not, how the world works. Nations and states are born, they live, they flourish, they decay and die. And we can’t just freeze the world as it is now and say nothing ever changes from here on out. No, we believe in an organic view of society. There is going to be life, and death, and decay, and victory, and defeat.

I think as an actual philosophy, this pan-nationalism has never, I’ve never had any interest in it. And also, one thing we can learn from the ancient world, we can also learn from the modern world as well, there are hegemonic power blocs across the world. That is not going to go anywhere. We aren’t going to just simply devolve into little statelets, or city states, or neighborhoods, whatever they want. There’s going to be big kahunas out there, who have more power than others, and are going to form the geopolitical world order. That just is what it is. We need to live in the world that exists and not just in some fantasy land.

MARK BRAHMIN: It’s also desirable. I mean, honestly, it’s also desirable. There is this famous parable in the Bible about the Tower of Babel. And the whole premise of that parable is that there are effectively these kind of non-Jewish figures whoa re trying to build a tower to go to the heavens. The Jewish god effectively sees them as a competitor, right?

RICHARD SPENCER: Right.

MARK BRAHMIN: He sends down his minions. He says lets go down and confuse their languages and disrupt them. So that Tower of Babel is kind of an ideal. That’s something that our adversaries wouldn’t want. When I say “the Tower of Babel” that would actually be a kind of unified culture. This unified language, or a common language, and common culture. We already have that to on extent or another, with English being a coommon language in the Western World. I think going in that direction, further in that direction, is actually a good thing.

RICHARD SPENCER: We need to flip all this supposed Biblical wisdom on its head. This is the paleocon answer: Oooh the Tower of Babel or whatever! It’s funny that a lot of these people are Catholics. No, we build structures that last a thousand years. That is what we do. We build the Tower of Babel. We build Rome and we centralize things and bring people together. And this can last a long time.

First, he doesn’t know what “pan-nationalism” means. He himself is actually a pan-national imperialist, and what he’s criticizing is genuine nationalism. Second, he’s not merely non-Christian and he wasn’t “confused about Brexit”, he openly supports globalist projects like the European Union and looks to the Tower of Babel as an ideal.

Spencer is no more on the side of Western civilization than Jordan Peterson or George Soros. He’s just another head of the globalist hydra.


Fake Right confirmed

The Fake Right is well to the Left of conservatives and even anti-American neocons like Ben Shapiro:

In an article on today’s “Daily Stormer” web site, mixed in with stories supporting Donald Trump and Brett Kavanaugh, Andrew Anglin and Weev published an article in which they lauded the cowardly attack by Jordan Hunt on a pro-life woman.

In the article, “Roy Batty”, most likely another one of Anglin’s sock-puppet pseudonyms, compared the soy-boy Jordan Hunt to Chuck Norris, and sided with Hunt when he called journalist Ben Shapiro a “Nazi” in a Tweet after the attack.

The article went on to attack all pro-life activists and conservatives, whom they said worshiped “Cuck Jesus”. It is clear that this is all being done in an effort to make Trump supporters and conservatives look as insane and degenerate as possible.

In another recent article, Anglin said that not just pro-life women, but all women “deserve to be beaten, raped and locked in cages“.

While it is easy to dismiss this all as just the rantings of Neo-Nazi loons, many on the Alt-Right still read and support the Daily Stormer web site. Some are even gullible enough to send these operatives donations via cryptocurrency.

The Daily Stormer first tried to influence the Alt-Right, by egging on the attendees at the fatal Charlottesville rally, and calling for violence. Later on, after the debate on the right about “optics”, Anglin or his handlers decided to align themselves with the “Alt-Light” or the “New Right”, and to pick up the American flag and declare themselves conservatives.

So, the Fake Right are pro-abortion, pro-socialist, anti-American, anti-Christian racial imperialists. They wrap themselves in the godless symbolism of the Left-wing Enlightenment free speech movement and worship death with all the enthusiasm of Hindu devotees of Kali; they are anti-God, anti-King, and anti-Nation.

Does that sound even remotely right-wing to you?

They are not Alt-Right, they are not Alternative Right, they are not Right at all. They are, and have always been, Fake Right. Anglin, Spencer, Auernheimer, Enoch, and Kessler are not right-wing extremists, they are left-wing activists and political performance artists. I pointed this out some time ago in my debate with Anglin on National Socialism.

They are just as much media-elevated approved opposition as the Intellectual Dark Web. The media hates the real Nationalist Right, which is the genuine alternative to the failed American conservative movement. Notice that the Fake Right has no connection to La Lega, to AfD, to Fidesz, to the SVP, to UKIP, to the Social Liberal Party, to Generation Identitaire, or to any of the other nationalist parties gaining strength across Europe. To the extent any of them even knew what it was, they even opposed Brexit.

Fake News created the Fake Right.

UPDATE: I am not interested in Alt-Retards putting on their clown nose and claiming “ur dur it’s just satire, ha, so funny!” To the extent this sort of nonsense can be considered “satire” it is retarded, unamusing, ineffective, and counterproductive. All that we need to know about the Fake Right is that it is a) anti-Christian and b) anti-Nationalist. They are not on our side and anyone who supports them is not permitted to comment on this blog.

If you think it’s funny, that’s fine. I understand that there are those who think John Oliver and Trevor Noah are funny too. In my opinion, you’re all literally retarded and your participation in the discourse here is undesirable.


Fakes on the Fake Right

Some of you may remember Eli Mosley, Richard Spencer’s right-hand guy, who bravely leaped to Spencer’s defense over the latter’s failure to pay royalties, provide reports, release the rights, or respond to a contractually required demand for arbitration on the part of one of his Radix authors. Now the New York Times has published an expose on him which serves to demonstrate that not all hit pieces are without merit.

As it turns out, Mosley is a military fraud. And I very much doubt his stolen valor is going to enhance the image of the Fake Right among the U.S. military or combat veterans.

After a short time filming behind the scenes with Eli and his associates, a theme emerged. He kept emphasizing a connection between the military and the alt-right. He said many of his compatriots were veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who had become disillusioned with the American political system after fighting in unwinnable conflicts. In his telling, members of the alt-right were patriotic Americans who had come to their extreme worldview through honorable life experience, not hatred.

He mentioned that he too had served in Iraq. But when I asked him to elaborate, he waved off the question. “It was boring.”

Boring? I had heard soldiers say they experienced periods of boredom on deployment, but I had never heard anyone sum up time in a war zone that way. I emailed the Army to verify details of his service. While I waited to hear back from them, my colleagues and I combed through alt-right podcasts in which he talked about his life.

The podcasts were laced with the most abhorrent racist vulgarities I had ever heard. Not only did they reveal more about Eli’s war story, but they also gave me insight into how he talked before he became media conscious and sanitized his message. With me, he insisted that the media unfairly applies labels like white supremacist and neo-Nazi to members of the alt-right “to browbeat white people out of identity politics.” But in the podcasts, recorded less than a year ago, he and his friends were unabashedly racist and anti-Semitic. He also spun tales of being embedded with the Iraqi Army, of being on the lookout for Chechen snipers, and of killing “muds,” a racial slur for Arabs.

When I got paperwork back from the Army and the National Guard confirming that he had never deployed, I was not surprised. At the same time, I couldn’t believe he would lie so boldly, first to his fellow members of the alt-right and then to a Times reporter, on camera.

His parents declined to speak with me, but I called some of his former friends and fellow soldiers, who told me Eli had wanted to deploy but his timing was off: He graduated from high school in 2010 and went straight on to a couple of semesters of college; by the end of 2011, the last troops had left Iraq. They also confirmed that Eli’s unit in the Pennsylvania National Guard did not deploy anywhere else during the roughly six years he served, and neither did he.

At this point, it is becoming increasingly apparent that Mike Cernovich was correct all along and Richard Spencer really is controlled opposition. That, or Spencer’s natural ability to surround himself with leftists and frauds while staggering from one obvious and easily avoidable PR disaster to the next without ever losing the media spotlight is the most highly developed since Hillary Clinton’s.

There is nothing – nothing – even remotely genuine about the Fake Right, and at this point, you would almost have to be retarded in order to take them seriously. They are strawmen set up in order to be taken down.

These people are stupid.


Alt-Retard is not of the Right

didnothingwrong whines that we exclude the Fake Right from those who will not be left behind:

Except if they’re alt-retards! Their economic views exclude them from any such consideration!

The Alt-Retards are not on our side. They are not our allies. They are our self-appointed enemies, by their positions, by their admissions and by their long and documented history of attacks on us.

It isn’t merely their economic views that justify their exclusion and our lack of support for them when their fellow lefties burn them. They are of the political Left in literally every way. They support the EU. They oppose nationalism. They are small-g globalists. They are often anti-Christian.

They are not of the Right and they never have been. That’s why so many of them voted for Obama. Never trust ANYONE who voted for Obama no matter how much they profess to have changed their views; remember, he was twice rated the 10th most left-leaning Senator in the U.S. Senate. No one legitimately on or of the Right would ever have supported him under any circumstances.

The Alt-Retards don’t support us and we will happily leave them behind. Because they are Fake Right.


Dicky Spencer’s Dance Party

The Fake Right are complete phonies and they always have been:

After a lifetime of involvement with the far-right Kevin Wilshaw announces on Channel 4 News that he is leaving the movement – at the same time publicly coming out as gay. The well known National Front organiser in the 1980s was still active in white supremacist groups earlier this year – including speaking at events. But tonight on Channel 4 News he explains for the very first time why he is publicly disavowing the movement – sharing his secrets, explaining how he was both a Neo-Nazi and of Jewish heritage.

“You have other members leading National Front who are overtly gay…. “I want to do some damage as well, not to ordinary people but the people who are propagating this kind of rubbish – want to hurt them, show what it’s like for those who are living a lie and be on the receiving end of this type of propaganda, I want to hurt them.”

We should have known this, on the principle that a) SJWs always project and b) SJWs always seek to infiltrate.

I remember being surprised when I interviewed Richard Spencer and discovered him to be to the Left of the entire Brainstorm community and surprisingly vague about anything that was policy related. This was the great extremist, the outlaw intellectual? My initial assumption was that he simply had poor judgment and hadn’t really formulated his political philosophy, especially when he went from one public relations debacle to the next without ever managing to accomplish anything substantial or do anything useful.

But it wasn’t until I discovered that Spencer had opposed Brexit and supported the European Union that I began to conclude that he, and at least a portion of what I called the Alt White, were not even of the ideological Right at all. I soon got confirmation from Greg Johnson, Andrew Anglin, and their fellow travellers, as they tried to simultaneously – and dishonestly – argue that a) they were the most extreme right of the right-wing, b) any criticism of them was “punching right”, and c) the terms of left and right were outdated and meaningless.

I don’t know about you, but anyone who has read SJWADD will recognize that form of rhetorical sophistry. It is ambiguity.

Arguments such as the following depend upon ambiguity. ‘Those learn who know: for it is those who know their letters who learn the letters dictated to them’. For to ‘learn’ is ambiguous; it signifies both ‘to understand’ by the use of knowledge, and also ‘to acquire knowledge’. 

And when I had the opportunity to see how Spencer had treated his authors, how he had not paid them or even reported book sales to them for literal years, how he had gone dark rather than respond to repeated telephone calls and emails, I understood that his character was very, very different than he sought to portray it to be.

Once I saw that the Fake Right was not only sophistical and dishonest, but was using its rhetoric in the interest of  pushing its knowing and intentional falsehoods, it became obvious why they were constantly accusing me and other married men of various non-Jewish backgrounds, of being gay and being Jewish. It was, of course, because they were projecting.

There is nothing right about the Fake Right in any sense of the term. They are not of the ideological Right. They are not straight; notice how few of them have wives, girlfriends, or children. And it is increasingly questionable how many of them are even white despite their clownish proclamations about white supremacy. They are no more genuine than the swastikas that so often appear on synagogue walls, the nooses that regularly appear on college campuses, and the date rapes that so often occur to outspoken feminists.

Don’t be fooled. There is no truth in them. The Fake Right is The Pink Swastika 2: Iron Menorah.


Mailvox: The Origins of the Alt-Retard

A Generation X reader sent me this analysis of the Fake Right Clown Posse, which somehow manages to be both sympathetic of the plight being faced by the young men of today and contemptuous of what some of them have become in response. I think he is largely correct, and explains why their attempts to defend their race and their nations so often go awry.

We have no choice but to help them. The challenge is that the only answer to ignorance is information, and as we know, as we have witnessed, there are some who cannot be instructed by information.

The Origins of the AltRetard

I’ve been pondering the origins of the AltRetard. Who are they, and why are they? They are, by and large, young white men, probably middle to lower class, who are the products of the environment and culture that they have been raised in. They know that this environment and culture is broken, is pozzed, and they are seeking an alternative. They are seeking health and well-being in a sick world, and this is good. But they haven’t found it yet.

I have some sympathy for these young men. Their condition is largely not their fault. As a GenXer, my own working class childhood situation was far from ideal, and things have only gotten worse for this demographic since then. We all stumble around in search of knowledge and wisdom that we don’t have, because they have not been passed down to us as they should have been.

“Tradition” means “that which is passed down.” The Western tradition – Christianity and Greco-Roman philosophy – teaches us how to be in the world, teaches us what we are and what to do with what we are. But this tradition has been systematically removed from the education system for the vast majority of Americans and Europeans. Only those whose parents have the foresight and the money to send their children to private schools that still teach the Classics and the Bible have learned much about it. And those men, because they have financial privilege, have mostly sold out for the sake of their own comfort. They have not handed down the tradition.

When my boomer parents and GI grandparents were young, they had to take Latin in high school. They had prayer in school. They learned about the history of Western civilization, its principles, its heroes, its triumphs and tragedies. The average public high school graduate from 1960 knew more about Western civilization than most graduate students today.

As for me and my GenX classmates, not so much. We had the beginning of today’s anti-Western education, not quite as bad as now, but bad enough. As for Millennials and Gen Z (or whatever they’re called), what have they got? Those that are “woke” are only awakened to just how bad things have gotten. But because they have been cut off from their native tradition, they do not have the intellectual tools with which to think things through and find solutions. They are not grounded in anything real.

So they become extremists. Partly because the problems are extreme, and the times themselves are extreme, but also because they lack the wisdom, gleaned from a knowledge of history, that extremes seldom produce good results. Extreme reactions to extreme problems often just become a new problem.

The German National Socialists of the 1930s could only have emerged from the Weimar era – in other words, from a thoroughly pozzed and degenerate environment. That’s why they had so much degeneracy within their ranks, in spite of their public opposition to much of it. The Nazis were not a traditionalist movement, and they were not a Western movement. They were not pro-European, but were German chauvinists, at the expense of many other European ethnic groups. They were not pro-Christian, but were either outright pagans or embraced heretical versions of Christianity such as Alfred Rosenberg’s gnostic-Catharist ideas. Lastly, they were not truly based upon the Greco-Roman tradition and Western history, but upon a dubious, revisionist version of European history that was cooked up by the Ahnenerbe in order to be used as propaganda, a kind of Tacitus-inspired We Wuz Kangz pseudohistory which even Hitler found embarrassing, and wished that Himmler would knock it off already.

You can see the continuation of this sort of non-thinking in much of today’s Alt-Reich, which embraces all kinds of strange conspiracy theories, up to and including the Flat Earth theory of Eric Dubay.

Similarly, the extreme elements within the Alt Right, who openly espouse Nazism and Fascism and any other extremism that they think will get a rise out of people, are the result of a thoroughly pozzed and decadent society not unlike Weimar (hence the oft-used Weimerica theme). They are a reaction to it – an understandable reaction, but not a healthy one. Since they have no moral or philosophical grounding (which, again, is not their fault) the only thing they can think to do is the opposite of whatever the culture is doing. So the solution to anti-fascism is necessarily Fascism. The solution to Jewish influence and power is blanket anti-Semitism. The solution to anti-white racism is white chauvinism. The solution to feminism is “white sharia” misogyny. And since Nazism is held by the dominant culture to be the supreme evil, it must, ipso facto, be the supreme good.

But it isn’t. It wasn’t the supreme evil either, and to that extent it’s the (((media’s))) fault for creating such a powerful taboo in the first place. But while it may feel good for hopeless young men to meme out images of Schutzstaffel Pepes gassing hooknose rabbis, at the end of the day it’s just reactionary child’s play that produces nothing and leads to nothing – nothing for the young men themselves, and nothing for the Western civilization which needs to be not only defended, but first rediscovered by generations of miseducated young men that have been denied their birthright and their spiritual home.


Real Alt Right

It’s incredibly informative that one of the most devastating accusations that the Fake Right Swastika Wearing Jackasses can imagine is that I stand by my friends and allies. Pop quiz: what can we safely conclude about the socio-sexual rank of people who consider doing so to be, not only a negative, but one so damaging as to be meme-worthy?

Milo stood by me when I made a media misstep that angered people at Breitbart. I stood by Milo when the media attempted to crucify him for his Joe Rogan interview and he lost his book deal with Simon & Schuster. That’s what friends and allies do, even when the other individual is flawed, imperfect, or behaves in a suboptimal manner. And only a fool or a social reject abandons people over mere differences of opinion or the occasional moral failure.

The responses were amusing.

Steve Autism‏@TruthNSausages
They DO know Vox was in the music business right?

Rusticus‏ @rusticusjunius
Wax Trax! Records for crying out loud.

To say nothing of TVT. Anyhow, it has become abundantly clear that we right-wing omni-nationalists are the Real Alternative Right, the True Right. Because the Fake Right Clowns are not of the Right, do not believe in the Right-Left spectrum, and even openly claim that the historical ideological Right is entirely irrelevant today. Which, of course, is precisely what makes them frauds and charlatans when they attempt to market themselves as “right-wing” in order to appeal to young conservatives and libertarians, as well as disenchanted young liberals and leftists.

The Fake Right is every bit as deceitful and false as CNN. And they utilize the same “guilt-by-association” tactics as the mainstream media.

As for me, you can always expect me to stand by my friends, allies, authors, and readers. Even when they make mistakes. Especially when they make mistakes.


Lies, deceit, and rhetoric

In last night’s Darkstream, I explained why there is no “us” when it comes to the Fake Right and the genuine Right. It’s not a question of rhetoric. Rhetoric is not intrinsically dishonest. It can be, but as we are instructed, rhetoric is most effective when it is enlisted in the service of the truth. Jesus Christ was not lying when he described the Pharisees as “white-washed tombs” and “serpents” and the “offspring of vipers”. He was not speaking dialectic, he was utilizing rhetoric to illustrate their emptiness and dishonesty.

But lies and deceit are always and intrinsically dishonest. Such dishonesties may be necessary at times, when one is forced to make a choice between two evils, but they can never serve as a core strategy for any movement that is genuinely on the side of the good, the right, the white, and the true.

These selections from the Anglin Style Guide demonstrates that not only are these people not on our side, they are not to be trusted by anyone, ever. There is so little truth in them, and so much intentional deceit, that I don’t think even their claimed purpose of “saving the white race” can necessarily be taken at face value.

PRIME DIRECTIVE: ALWAYS BLAME THE JEWS FOR EVERYTHING

As Hitler says in Mein Kampf, people will become confused and disheartened if they feel there are multiple enemies. As such, all enemies should be combined into one enemy, which is the Jews. This is pretty much objectively true anyway, but we want to leave out any and all nuance.

So no blaming Enlightenment though, pathological altruism, technology/urbanization, etc. – just blame Jews for everything.

This basically includes blaming Jews for the behavior of other non-Whites. Of course it should not be that they are innocent, but the message should always be that if we didn’t have the Jews we could figure out how to deal with non-Whites very easily.

The same deal with women. Women should be attacked, but there should always be mention that if it wasn’t for the Jews, they would be acting normally.

What should be completely avoided is the sometimes mentioned idea that “even if we got rid of the Jews we would still have all these other problems.” The Jews should always be the beginning and the end of every problem, from poverty to poor family dynamics to war to the destruction of the rainforest.

LULZ

The unindoctrinated should not be able to tell if we are joking or not…. This is obviously a ploy and I actually do want to gas kikes. But that’s neither here nor there.

POSITIVITY

We should always claim we are winning, and should celebrate any wins with extreme exaggeration. This does not mean we downplay the enemy, just that we play up ourselves. We overestimate our influence.

We should always be on the lookout for any opportunity to grab media attention. It’s all good. No matter what. The most obvious way to do this is to troll public figures and get them to whine about it. I keep thinking this will stop working eventually, but it just never does.

100{4b033d089a03a9d6b9674df13602c915dbf0bc6412bba28fe81b059d5445fd00} BLACK AND WHITE

Just as we mustn’t present multiple enemies, we mustn’t leave any room for nuance in any other area. To the entent that it is physically possible, everything should be painted in completely black and white terms. The basic idea is that everyone on our side is 100{4b033d089a03a9d6b9674df13602c915dbf0bc6412bba28fe81b059d5445fd00} good and everyone who isn’t on or side is 100{4b033d089a03a9d6b9674df13602c915dbf0bc6412bba28fe81b059d5445fd00} evil.

DEHUMANIZATION

There should be a conscious agenda to dehumanize the enemy, to the point where people are ready to laugh at their deaths. So it isn’t clear that we are doing this – as that would be a turnoff to most normal people – we rely on lulz.

ATTACKING MAINSTREAM SHILLS

Pro-Jew shills should be attacked. These include Alex Jones, Gavin McInnes and Milo. At the same time, they should also be accused/celebrated as secret Nazis whenever they post anything that lines up with our agenda.

As you see, not unlike SJWs, Swastika-Wearing Jackasses are also prone to lying. Of course, as is the case with SJW projection, their very strategies inform us how we can effectively respond to them. Every time they claim a victory, praise them for being good little Stormpoopers and “celebrating the win with extreme exaggeration”. Every time they claim to be important or the most-trafficked site in the history of the Internet, praise them for remembering to “overestimate their influence.”

If they whine about being attacked and ask you why, keep the answer short and succinct: “because you are evil and your Alinsky-inspired strategy is literally satanic.” At the end of the day, that is sufficient cause to reject them, no matter what their professed objectives may be.

And when they try to run Jon Stewart’s “clown nose on, clown nose off” game and start posturing about how you’re just too old to grasp “the lulz”, you would do well to remind them that you are aware the lulz are only there to hide the fact that they are actively seeking to dehumanize people and inure others to their deaths.


Convincing

I changed my mind. This response to the Anglin debate was my favorite.

Kek Vult
Man who is this Anglin dude? He’s sounds like a real gentleman and hes got a handsome voice. I really wanna check out his website!

Kek Vult
Man who is this Anglin dude? He’s sounds like a real gentleman and hes got a handsome voice. I really wanna check out his website!

It’s even more convincing when you post it twice, apparently. Alt-Retard may be giving these Stormpuppets too much credit. I’ve been hitherto fortunate in my near complete ignorance of them, but now that I’ve been made a little more familiar with the best that they have to offer, all I can conclude is that if the fate of the West depends upon them, we should all start learning Arabic and Chinese.
