Artikel-Schlagworte: „ideology“

Martin Lichtmesz on Germany’s Colonization

Martin Lichtmesz, one of Germany’s best political essayists (whose essays I haven’t translated until now, as his German is so brilliant that you would have to be Shakespeare to translate it in adequate English), has published a new book: „Die Verteidigung des Eigenen“, dealing with the ideology behind Germany’s self-destruction.

I want to give at least a short quotation from it: Having dealt with Frantz Fanon’s criticism of colonization and colonialism, in which the author’s the reference to  his own nègrerie („negroness“), i.e. his awareness of racial identity and its importance for freedom and self-determination plays a major role, Martin draws a parallel to the German situation, to the arrogant attitude of the West and the self-denying masochism of many Germans:

Cognitive Dissonance and Political Correctness

by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage

[Original title: „Kognitive Dissonanz und Political Correctness“, korrektheiten.com, april 19, 2011]

 

The most striking feature of the socially dominant leftist ideology is the glaring discrepancy between its doctrines and visible reality:

It is obviously true that intelligence is heritable, that Islam is anything but a religion of peace, that men and women are by nature different, that western nations owe their wealth above all their own creativity and intelligence (and not „exploitation of the Third world“), that multiethnic societies bring about ethnic conflicts, that normal families are more stable than patchwork families, etc., and everyone – if honest – knows it is true. And yet all these assertions are marked as „evil.“ „Good“ is just the opposite of all this, i.e. the bare nonsense.

How is it possible that a system of thought of such a surreal remoteness from reality whose absurdity even a fool can see through does not collapse under the weight of its own ridiculousness?

Hostility Toward Germans Part III: White Guilt and Islamic Chauvinism

Hostility Toward Germans Part III:

White Guilt and Islamic Chauvinism

Written by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage

Translated by J M Damon

A translation of a German blog posted at

[Following is Part III of my lecture “Hostility Towards the Germans – Taking Stock” which was presented to the Institut für Staatspolitik (Institute for State Policy) as part of the 18th Berlin Colloquium on 16 July 2011.]

Expansion of the Paradign of anti German Hostility

to the Entire West

As we have seen, hostility toward Germany and Germans exists on three levels.

On the lowest (first) level, it is the kind of hostility or antagonism that is directed toward a specific Volk or people (in our case the Germans.)

On this level we are dealing with simple resentments dating to former antagonisms (such as those with the Poles, English and Jews.)

Hostility Towards Germans Part II: German Self-Hatred and Leftist Ideology

Written by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage  

Translated by J M Damon

<Following is a translation of a German blog posted at <http://korrektheiten.com/2011/08/04/deutschenfeindlichkeit-teil-2-deutscher-selbsthass-und-linke-ideologie/>

[Part I of my lecture on “Hostility Towards Germans” dealt with the ideology that has resulted from the anti German narrative in the West.
I described how and why this ideology has always been and will always be inappropriate for Germany.
In the following section I discuss the consequences that necessarily derive from the adoption of this narrative by the Germans themselves.
In conclusion I discuss the role played by leftist ideology in the overall complex of hostility toward Germans.]

Hostility Towards Germans Part I: The Anti-German Narrative in the West

Written by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage

 

Translated by J M Damon

 

Following is a translation of a blog posted at http://korrektheiten.com/2011/08/02/deutschenfeindlichkeit-das-westliche-antideutsche-narrativ/

The blog begins:

[On 16 July 2011 the author gave a lecture before the Berlin Institute for State Policy on the subject of “Hostility Towards Germans – An Appraisal” in conjunction with the Institute’s 18th Course of Lectures. Unfortunately there are no recordings of this highly interesting event.  In response to requests, I have reconstituted my speech from notes. Since the lecture is too long for a single blog article I am posting it as a series, beginning with “The Anti-German Narrative in the West.]

Why we won’t bow and weep after Oslo …

… an Introduction to European Rightists

by Kairos („Warum wir nach Oslo nicht einknicken und rumheulen“, As der Schwerter, July 24, 2011, translated by Anders Denken with corrections by Kairos)

 

Since really not much new is coming out about the alleged attacker Breivik and the incidents in Oslo, the ideology that he allegedly followed, is now the focus of attention. Therefore it behooves us to delve into the various aspects and orientations of the right-wing spectrum.

Note in advance: None of the currents mentioned here offer an intellectual foundation for violent acts, even though that is being constantly asserted. No counterjihadist, nationalist or conservative, or even racist or neonazi should let themselves be heaped together with Breivik.
Such a thing clearly is not done with attacks from Islamic terrorists. One comes to the point there of considering how small a percentage of Muslims are actually radical and how few of them actually advocate violence with the result that the attacks „have nothing to do with Islam.“ Of course, „Islam is peace.“
When looking at the intellectual bases of Islam, especially the Quran, the conclusion is made that, in fact there is a call for violence against infidels, and indeed unambiguously and not just sporadically.
Michael Mannheimer created a excellent graphic to illustrate this fact.
http://fakten-fiktionen.de/2011/07/24/politisch-inkorrekte-gedanken-zum-norwegen-massaker/
Even if the act was not a „false-flag“ action – as one can guess alone on the basis of the improbability that the media knew everything about Breivik and the thinkers who influenced him –  even if the criminal had no psychiatric disorder but was a „normal“ right-winger, it still in no way proves that right wing individuals are brutal perpetrators of violence. If it proves anything, it proves only that the unbearable results of multiculturalism, coupled with the interdiction of naming them, can drive people to insanity.
We have already been accused of „mockery of the victims,“ as I have forecast, because we dared to question the version that the media present to us.
It is only a mockery of the victims, if – as in the case with 9/11 – the light is kept with all means possible from shining through the fog.
It has been told us clearly to our face: It is expected that we are ashamed to death because of Brevik’s crime, put on the cloak of repentance and wail like the witch’s apprentice over the spirits to whom we have allegedly sold our souls.
We will not do that! We will document the incidents in Oslo and analyze, but we will not allow the Left one occasion to tear us apart.
The extra step of distancing oneself from the monstrous act is not necessary, condemning it already is a given. But it seems very „practical“ that an alleged White Nationalist chose precisely that act that evokes the highest measure of condemnation among Whites, and that he appears to twist all of their nationalistic slogans talking about the esteem of children and hostility against people that harm children into punishable lies The one accustomed to defaming anyone right of the SPD (Socialist Party of Germany) as a Nazi would probably be shocked at the diversity of European rightists. They can be coarsely categorized into four areas. I am intentionally oversubscribe the characteristics of each scene here for the purpose of clarification; of course the borders around these areas are somewhat fluid.
1 Counterjihadism
2. Conservatives
3. Nationalists
4. Neonazis
Scene 1:
Many turn to the critique of Islam because they have experienced first hand what „enrichment“ (the former ministeress for integration of foreigners in Germany, Böhmer) really means. They have come in contact with „juvenile perpetrators of intense crimes,“ and have to watch as these individuals are either marginally punished or not punished at all for their crime; they live in a neighborhood that is teeming with Muslim foreigners and perceive the changes. Also, Islamic terrorism has made many people into counterjihadism, especially since the attacks of 9/11/2001.
Dealing with the Quran and the Hadiths, with Muhammad’s life and the Islamic Sharia law, in fact, a world opens up to us that has not only a foreign but also monstrous and misanthropic effect upon us.
Manfred Kleine-Hartlage presented in his book „The Jihad System“ a sound analysis of the intellectual bases for Islam.
Counterjihadists like to compare Islam with fascism. They treat Islam as a totalitarian ideology that destroys the lives of people. Geert Wilders said: „I don’t battle against Muslims, but against Islam.“
The objective behind the critique of Islam is that the Muslims come to understand that they are following a hate ideology and need to secularize. This, however, works only in exceptional cases because critique of Islam is based on false premises (it points Islam out as an ideology, as something that the Muslims could simply abandon).
There is not just right-wing, but also left-wing and liberal counterjihadism. Most critics of Islam are not right-wing in the classical sense and even place great value in this. Many advocate the position of the equality of left-wing and right-wing extremism.
Counterjihadism is openly pro-Israeli. Israel is looked upon as an ally of the West and against Islam. The United States and the „war against terror“ are also seen in a positive light.
Parts of Counterjihadism rise to the level of accusing the Muslims of things that aren’t even right. Their blindness as to problems with non-Muslim immigration serve as backdrop to this.
Most Counterjihadists don’t place the narrative of open European society and multiculturalism in question, but look upon Islam in its isolationism, its narcissism and its lack of willingness to compromise as an obstacle to the realization of the dream of an intercultural world.
Also, the Counterjihad has nothing against homosexuals, in contrast, they are cited as chief witnesses for the brutality of Islam (in Islamic countries, homosexuality is a crime).
Scene 2:
The conservatives don’t see „the West“ as endangered by Islam, but rather their country and people. They are mostly Christians and stand in theological opposition to Islam. Conservatives are outside the bounds of the „metaideology“ (Kleine-Hartlage) of liberalism and marxism. The two apparently contradictory trends are actually united in the assumption that the „liberation“ of mature structures and traditions is something good per se.
Conservativism then asks why things that have worked for centuries should be sacrificed in favor of societal experiments, it is explicitly anti-utopian.
Conservatives favor the classical family over homosexual relationships because the preservation of the nation is important to them. And homosexuals make no contribuation in the production of a new generation.
The conservative camp is divided about the question of Israel. Most neoconservatives are pro-Israeli, many traditional conservatives see Christianity as a child of Judaism. But in contrast to the counterjihad scene, in the conservative scene there are also critical voices against the Jews and Israeli policy.
Conservatives speak out for the rehomogenization of the European nations because they know that democracy can only function with a ‘demos’ (nation), a multiethnic population, however, will always get caught up in tribal conflicts and therefore will virtually shout for a totalitarian regime.
Some conservatives even cast a favorable glance toward monarchy.
Scene 3:
The nationalists define themselves no more with ideas and positions, but rather with belonging. The nations (and also the superordinate White Race) are presumed as natural founders of identity. That does not mean that they hate other nations. They only maintain that every nation will be happy within the borders of its own country and the insane experiment of multiculturalism comes to an end. The Americans stress the racial components here, the Europeans the national components, which makes sense in light of the different situations.
Nationalists aren’t hateful monsters, they are people who are consumed with love for their people and their homeland and want to defend them. Any Indian tribe in Australia’s outback is guaranteed the right to ethnic singularity. Only, the European nations are not, they are supposed to mix with others.
Why is that? How can the mechanism of „White Guilt“ be effective? Only through the implicit recognizance of racist divergence. If there is no such thing as races and nations, then we also don’t need to be ashamed of colonization and oppression (by the way, one can look up how slavery, which we abolished long ago, is still practiced by blacks and Muslims today. They, however, don’t feel any guilt). If there are races and nations, then it is our proper right to set ourselves in defense against the annihilation of our race and our peoples. The same applies for the special German cult of national guilt.
These contraditions can lead to cognitive dissonance. Anyone with eyes in his head can see what a monstrous experiment multiculturalism is. But to express this is taboo, as though the expression of this fact is the actual crime itself.
Nationalists are also involved in the area of historical revisionism, which counterjihadists reject and conservatives handle only with kid gloves. There are significant indications that we are being lied to systematically with reference to the course and foundations of the Second World War.
Most nationalists exceed an anti-Israeli point of view. In contrast to left-wing antizionism that is oriented against Israeli apartheid policy, the nationalist turns anti-judaism against jewish internationalism.
Ultimately, countless hints and statements have led many nationalists to look upon the „conspiracy theory“ of the NWO („New World Order“) as true.
The apparent goal of the New World Order is to replace the various nations with an easily controllable ethnical mix and ultimately to set up a totalitarian global state. There are countless documents to support this, many quotes from well-known people can also be interpreted in this fashion.
Scene 4:
The neonazis are not only the ones who actually worship Hitler, but also those who can’t imagine that the NS regime acted on purely irrational grounds. Any suggestion of rational motives is seen as revisionism and branded as trivialization and patently rejected. National Socialism ideologically fulfills the function of the scapegoat, the absolute evil.
Not only Hitler worshippers and Holocaust skeptics not scratch the surface of this historical narrative but even the one who suggests that Hitler and his followers had human motives rather than demonizing them, and the one who expresses vague misgiving that the division of a group into genetically evil, bestial war criminals (German) and heroic resistance warriors (opponents of Germany) is historically correct.
There are, of course, the true worshippers of Hitler who are openly antidemocratic. This could be interpreted (loyal to the system) as „irreformably evil“ or one can interpret this position as an answer to the many existential problems into which the democracy of the Federal Republic of Germany has fallen.

It can be conclusively said that there are many people to be found in the right-wing that have concerns about the future of our country and our children, good people whose wish is that we live in prosperity and peace in the future and who see that the nearly untouchable socialist cartel of the traditional parties and mass media have placed this in jeopardy.
Yes, the anger on the Right is great. However it is anger that the defense of our homeland, of our families, of our people – fundamental human rights – are being criminalized and chased down.
The American right-wing extremist David Lane formulated 14 words: „We must secure the existence of our people and the future for white children.“ These words are looked upon as evidence that Lane intends to enslave other races (compare Wikipedia, for example), a „white supremacist,“ who hates other nations and would rather annihilate them.
Substitute the „white“ with „black,“ or perhaps with „muslim“ or „jewish“ and you won’t find anyone who finds these 14 words offensive. If you understand this, then you have found yourself on the path to intellectual emancipation.
This is probably the greatest obstacle in the evaluation of nationalistic viewpionts:
One has to admit to being taken in by the left-wing establishment, having followed a diseased ideology as being self-evident, and having allowed oneself to be lulled to sleep like an idiot with the most insolent lies.
Keep in mind that a late-occurring intellectual emancipation is still better than chewing on the lies despite better knowing.
Time is not on our side. The name „Mohammed“ is now the name most commonly given to male newborns in most of Europe’s large cities.
I predict that non-counterjihadists and ex-counterjihadists will distance themselves from counterjihadism in view of Breivik’s crime, counterjihadists from conservativism, conservatives from nationalism, and nationalists from „neonazis.“
What can you do about it? Don’t distance yourself. The call for distancing is only an instrument of power. Recognize that the issue with the alleged „bad guys“ has to do only with the defense of their homeland.
I predict that other crimes will follow the crime in Oslo, committed by all sides. I predict that leftist and muslim organizations will attempt to gain capital from this crime, that they will use it as justification for „acts of revenge.“
What can you do about this? Support democratic rights, which party or organization does not matter at all.
Get involved with law and order, help each other. Don’t be afraid of your neighbour, rather look out for him.
I predict that we find ourselves on the threshold of a European civil war (we say „internal war“). Perhaps Oslo was a gentle flare-up like the street battles in Greece.
Perhaps we are already past the phase of „pre-civil war.“ The Euro will collapse and the national organs in all of Europe will lose the power monopoly in their territories. There will be ideologically, theologically and ethnically motivated battle actions.
What can you do about it? If I’m right, then the outcome can no longer be stopped. You need to gather provisions, consider proper methods for self-defense and either intensify the relationships with your neighbours or work out plans for fleeing (if you live in a large city, you especially should consider a rural flight).
Most of all, you can help by participating in alerting other people on the Internet in order to bypass the interpretative dominance of the mass media and present alternative forms of interpretating reality. Don’t be sidetracked by those who will call you intolerant, racist (and worse). If you are trying to defend your family, your homeland and your people, then you are on the right path.
Reach out to each other. It plays no role whether you have always been conservative or were left-wing up until yesterday. What counts is new solidarity that will decide between life and death.
Do not act aggressive to foreigners. On the contrary, be especially courteous. But don’t allow any insults or acts of humiliation either! Show clearly who this country belongs to! If you are attacked, defend yourself. If your fellow countrymen are attacked, come to their aid. Don’t look the other way any more!
And say, write, show the betrayers from politics, economy and media what you think of them!
And to the politicians and media cartel, we say only these words:
Just try and forbid!

Why? Reflections on the Oslo Massacre

[Originally posted by Manfred in German („Warum?“) in the blog korrektheiten.com saturday evening, one day after Oslo. Translation by John Haase and Kairos]

I suppose nobody of us will ever forget the nightmare of the 24 hours since a bomb exploded in the center of Oslo. The fact that the ensuing massacre was directed against children cannot be explained with political strategy and much less be justified by it. I have children myself. There is no worse fate for any parent than to lose a child. I grieve with the victims and their families and pray for them.

These relatives – parents, siblings, friends – and the whole public, as long as not busy with self- affirmation of their loved concepts of enemy, they have a right to know, how it could come to this. And I believe that the Counterjihad- scene can say more and more important things about it than the mainstream media, that can and will see no more in this horrible happening of July, 22th 2011 than a reason to agitate their own political agenda and that has an interest in silencing their own part in the processes that drive totally normal, peaceloving people into radicalism. We can say more because the assassin – so it seems – stood near the Counterjihad- scene with his political agenda.

It ist not cynical therefore, and of course no attempt to justify then murders of Oslo at all, to have a look at the political and social trends that led to the vicious attack. In fact, it is necessary in order to answer the Question that we all have: why?

U.S. Strategy for Europe: Re-education

First published as Die US-Strategie: Umerziehung Europas“ in “Korrektheiten” on February 11th, 2011, by Manfred Kleine Hartlage

Translation and Introduction: Kairos

The Jews pose a determined threat to the nations and peoples of the West. I am not being extreme or anti-Semitic, when I say so.

While translating this article I followed the discussion about Manfred Kleine-Hartlage’s response to Lawrence Auster on the Korrektheiten, Gates of Vienna and Austers View from the Right.

It is interesting to see how views of the German people are revealed that would automatically be regarded as “racism” and “hate” if proposed the other way around. A commentator posted the Latin proverb “quod licet Iovi non licet bovi” (what Jupiter may do is forbidden to the ox).

Doctor Schäuble’s governmental neuroses

by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage, first issued in German, October 1, 2009: Doktor Schäubles Staatsneurosen

If you want to know which ideology is the basis of this country’s immigration policy, it is illuminating to examine carefully what the responsible persons say about themselves. Wolfgang Schäuble, [then] Minister of the Interior, had recently in  „Welt am Sonntag“ a dispute with the immigration-critical Dutch sociologist Paul Scheffer. This debate deserves an extensive analysis. I concentrate on what Mr. Schäuble said, however I recommend  to read the whole discussion, not least because of the critical objections worth reading of Professor Scheffer:
