If you have been on the Alt Right or the nationalist right for very long then you will have realized something: the Left is always trying to psychoanalyze us and pick our brains. By doing this they want to show that there is absolutely nothing legitimate in the critiques that we make of modern American society, and that our entire political philosophy comes from mental illness and psychological problems. Of course, the Left is the absolute model of mental health, so there is obviously no need to do any investigations into them or what mental issues cause them to have their politics. Well, I want to do to them what they have been doing to us for the last 100 years. I want to put anti-racists on the couch and psychoanalyze them in the same way that they psychoanalyze us. We can learn a lot from looking into these people’s minds and perhaps help to sway other whites from going down the destructive path of anti-white hatred and socially destructive virtue-signaling that so many modern whites have gone down.
To look into the psychology of anti-racists, we have to first analyze what the anti-racist gets from his or her anti-racism. What does it do for them? Some people believe in certain ideas because it gives them a sense of stability and a way to order the world. Others believe what they believe because it soothes them and makes them feel good about themselves. So, what does the anti-racist get from their anti-racism? To answer that question, I think it would be first helpful to differentiate between the two poles, or extremes, on the spectrum of anti-racist belief. On one side of the spectrum is the cynical, anti-white anti-racist, and the other side is the naive and idealistic anti-racist, who do not believe that they are being anti-white, but instead believe that they are simply helping everyone. Secondly, because anti-racist thinking is not based in logic but is based instead on faith and emotion, I think it would be helpful to look at what people get out of religious faith as a path towards understanding what people get out of being anti-racist.
We on the Alt Right know about the cynical anti-racists all too well. For many of us, it was the voices of cynical, anti-white anti-racists which have pushed us to the political positions that we now hold. These are people who actually just hate white people but use the language of anti-racism as a cover which they can use to attack white people. You certainly could say that anti-racism is, at its core, an anti-white ideology, and I would certainly agree with you, but there is also another kind of anti-racism that is not rooted in hatred but is, instead, rooted in ignorance. This would be people on the other end of the spectrum, the naive and idealistic anti-racists. These would be your crusading types, the reformers, the do-gooders, the people who think that they can change the world. This the type of anti-racist that really does believe all of the propaganda and thinks that they are fighting for a better world for everyone, whites and non-whites alike. From our perspective, it sometimes seems like these kind of anti-racists don’t exist, but they certainly do, and compassionate whites often find themselves falling prey to all manner of nonsense left-wing ideologies because these ideologies claim to have compassion for people who are being oppressed and compassionate whites want to help those who are being harmed. I make these categorizations because each kind of anti-racist gets something different out of their kind of anti-racism.
The malevolent, anti-white, anti-racists primarily get hatred out of their anti-racism. Hatred and bigotry are big parts of what the modern Left get out of their beliefs. Hatred is psychologically pleasing for most people. If hatred and its behavioral cousin, violence, didn’t give people tremendous psychological benefits, then human history wouldn’t be the long story of endless violence and hatred that it is. The roots of why we enjoy hatred so much are intertwined with tribalism and the desire to destroy the opposing tribe, but suffice it to say, humans love to hate and the way that the Left expresses its hatred is through anti-white anti-racism. Through the ideology of anti-racism, they get to say the most vile and disgusting things about white people and they get a social pass. The cynical anti-racist hates the normal white person. They see misfortunes for the normal white person as fortunate for them. The pain of the normal white person is their pleasure. They are not driven by altruistic impulses whatsoever. For them, it is all about being allowed to hate and demean white people.
The naive and idealistic anti-racist gets something very different from their anti-racism. For the naive and idealistic anti-racist, what they primarily get are feelings of moral goodness, virtue, and a sense that they are helping to improve the world. At the core of most of this type of anti-racism is the desire to be a good person and be seen as being a good person. Everyone wants that; it is fundamental to the tribal nature of human beings. Our sense of moral goodness is, fundamentally, derived from our tribe and from how our tribe sees us, thus the desire to have our tribe or our society see us as good people is a very natural impulse. Anti-racists of this mold get the same feeling from their anti-racism that many people get from volunteering for charity or helping a neighbor. It is a combination of a feeling of internal spiritual joy and a feeling that you are on the righteous path. Also, the desire to improve your society and humanity as a whole is perhaps the most uniquely white impulse that exists. So it should be no surprise that it exists within a movement or ideology that is overwhelmingly white. I do not demean this impulse, I simply recognize that it is being used for destructive ends when it is being funneled through anti-racism.
What this anti-racist ideology shares with religion is its ability to order the moral standards of our society and give people profound and euphoric feelings. We on the Alt Right dismiss this by calling it “up cummies” and things along those lines, and while I think it is good to shame people for attacking their own race, I also think it is necessary to look at the real psychological benefits that people are getting from anti-racism and to understand the religious thinking behind it.
What do you think virtue-signaling is? It is, in some ways, a religious experience. When white people in America adopt a black child or go to Africa to volunteer for this or that charity, they describe a feeling of being washed over with joy. I doubt that these same people would have this depth of feeling if they adopted a poor Ukrainian child or went to volunteer in a poor country like Estonia. What these anti-racists are feeling is the wonderful sensation that they are now “good people” in the eyes of their society. After having been denied the opportunity to see themselves as good people for their entire lives, they now have the chance to both see themselves as good and be seen by others as good, through taking actions of self-negation and taking care of the needs of the outsider more than their own needs. It functions almost identically to religion. You are told that you were born in sin and that you can only work towards being holy by negating yourself, by acting against what is good for you or by denying yourself the material things of this earth. White people are, of course, told from birth that their people have sinned, that whites are evil, and then they are given the opportunity to work their way out of that sin through attacking other white people or doing things that benefit other races at the expense of their own.
The anti-racist ideology also creates moral standards—standards by which people can live by and organize their lives by. In a time like ours when there are seemingly no moral standards about anything, anti-racism gives people a set of moral rules that they can follow. Much like religion, anti-racists are told that there is always more “work” to do and that they must daily struggle against their natural impulses to serve a higher purpose. The primary difference between the faith of anti-racism and the Christian faith is that struggling against sexual immorality or greed actually makes you a better person, whereas struggling against noticing that black people are more violent and making up excuses for why it is all white people’s fault just makes you less safe and makes white people more of a hated scapegoat. Our job, in large part, is to show other white people that they will never be able to actually live up to those rules and that they will always be seen as evil or “bad” whites no matter what they do. Calling all of this a religion is perhaps being too kind. What it is is a cult, and we have to work to break the cult conditioning that white people have been put under from birth.
Anti-racism is a cult that psychologically abuses white children by telling them that all of the problems of foreign races are the result of the evil of their own race. It is anti-racism that causes young children in New York to come home crying because their teachers have convinced them that they are evil for being white. Anti-racism is a sick cult and to break people’s minds from this cult, we must understand what keeps people enslaved in its thrall. We must treat our white brothers and sisters who are under its spell with love and kindness, for they are its victims just as much as they are its perpetrators. And to those who are cynical and use these ideas only to harm, we must give them nothing but the sword of our most brutal rhetoric.
