Slavoj Zizek made a brilliant stunt purposely plagiarizing, wanting to get caught, in order to get Kevin Macdonald passages published in Newsweek, to get Steve Sailer mentioned, and also to get American Renaissance publicized in Newsweek; that’s my story and I’m sticking to it

That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it. I think this is a very clever and engineered media stunt by Zizek, to get the mass media to publicize Kevin Macdonald, Steve Sailer, and American Renaissance.

Thanks Zizek! Great job! You could see this as an example of a successful Open Source Intelligence operation.

I will post links and copypasta below.

Zizek is an old style Communist who secretly or not so secretly despises the program of Cultural Marxism. He is a secret heretic among them. It amazes me that Amy Goodman keeps inviting him on, but it does make good TV and so she probably thinks it’s worth it to give the heretic some air time.

The thing Zizek does is pretend to be a friend of the multiracialist left, when he really isn’t. He wants pro-White communism, like the original Karl Marx. Zizek wants to Communist Party like it’s 1899.

Read the link at Newsweek, or better yet, get a copy of this one! This is friggin’ amazing, that they put Kevin Macdonald passages in there! In two versions, no less! hahahahaha!

Did Marxist Philosophy Superstar Slavoj Žižek Plagiarize a White Nationalist Journal?
By Taylor Wofford
Filed: 7/11/14 at 3:18 PM

Slavoj Žižek, one of the most widely known Marxist philosophers of the 21st century, has been accused of plagiarism by The American Renaissance, a conservative magazine focusing on “race and racial conflict” that the Southern Poverty Law Center classifies as a white nationalist hate group.

Žižek’s bombastic style and frequent forays into criticism of popular culture have earned him a large following. The International Journal of Žižek Studies, whose purported mission is “investigating, elaborating and critiquing the work of Slavoj Žižek,” called him “the Elvis of cultural theory.” The author of more than 70 books, Žižek is a frequent contributor to The Guardian and is the subject of three films: Žižek!, The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema and The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology.

Which makes Žižek a big scalp if you are a conservative commentator. On July 9 conservative blogger Steve Sailer called attention to a book review written by Žižek in 2006. “A Plea for a Return to Différance (with a Minor Pro Domo Sua)”, a review of The Culture of Critique: An Evolutionary Analysis of Jewish Involvement in Twentieth-Century Intellectual and Political Movements by Kevin MacDonald, was published in 2006 in Critical Inquiry by the University of Chicago Press.

Sailer wrote, “The superstar professor achieves a higher degree of clarity while expounding MacDonald’s message than in any other passage I’ve read by Žižek.”

Later the same day, a blogger writing under the name Deogolwulf posted a side-by-side comparison of passages from Žižek’s review and another review of MacDonald’s book by Stanley Hornbeck that appeared in the March 1999 issue of The American Renaissance. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, The American Renaissance “regularly feature[s] proponents of eugenics and blatant anti-black racists.”

Deogolwulf pointed out that the two reviews bear an uncanny resemblance.

Here’s Žižek:

MW editorial note — What’s amazing about this being in Newsweek. Kevin Macdonald’s views are summed up not once, but twice! It’s as though Newsweek really wants to hammer the point home. Milliosn of people in doctor’s and dentists offices will see “white supremacist” or whatever it says on the cover, and go right to that article, and read the following:

The main academic proponent of this new barbarism is Kevin MacDonald, who, in The Culture of Critique, argues that certain twentieth-century intellectual movements led by Jews have changed European societies in fundamental ways and destroyed the confidence of Western man; these movements were designed, consciously or unconsciously, to advance Jewish interests even though they were presented to non-Jews as universalistic and even utopian.

MW editorial note — Barbarism is not necessarily a bad thing. He says it like it’s supposed to be an insult, but maybe it’s not. The barbarians defeated Rome, after all. We are the new Visigoths! Zizek declared us to be!

And here’s Hornbeck

In The Culture of Critique, Kevin MacDonald advances a carefully researched but extremely controversial thesis: that certain 20th century intellectual movements – largely established and led by Jews – have changed European societies in fundamental ways and destroyed the confidence of Western man. He claims that these movements were designed, consciously or unconsciously, to advance Jewish interests even though they were presented to non-Jews as universalistic and even utopian.

Again, Žižek:

MacDonald devotes many pages to The Authoritarian Personality(1950), a collective project coordinated by Adorno, the purpose of which was, for MacDonald, to make every group affiliation sound as if it were a sign of mental disorder; everything, from patriotism to religion to family—and race—loyalty, is disqualified as a sign of a dangerous and defective ‘authoritarian personality’. Because drawing distinctions between different groups is illegitimate, all group loyalties—even close family ties—are ‘prejudice’.
And Hornbeck:

Prof. MacDonald devotes many pages to an analysis of The Authoritarian Personality, which was written by Adorno and appeared in 1950.… The book’s purpose is to make every group affiliation sound as if it were a sign of mental disorder. Everything from patriotism to religion to family—and race—loyalty are signs of a dangerous and defective ‘authoritarian personality’. Because drawing distinctions between different groups is illegitimate, all group loyalties—even close family ties!—are ‘prejudice’.

When Newsweek contacted Critical Inquiry, James Williams, its senior managing editor, agreed that Žižek “absolutely” borrowed from Hornbeck’s review. “We’re very sorry it happened,” he said. “If we had known Žižek was plagiarizing, we would have certainly asked him to remove the illegal passages.”

Newsweek then contacted Hornbeck, who writes under a pseudonym. “Anyone who has seen the side-by-side comparisons can have no doubt that Žižek is a plagiarist,” he said. “I know nothing about his writing habits. Maybe he does this all the time. Or it may be that as a prominent Marxist he didn’t want it known that he reads American Renaissance. In any case, what he did is contemptible, and his publisher…should certainly have a word with him.”

Newsweek emailed Deogolwulf and Sailer for comment, but they did not respond by publication time. Attempts to reach Žižek through The Guardian were also unsuccessful.

Here’s the Amren link and some comments:

OTOH, at least AR is getting credible enough such that people want to plagiarize from it.

HA HA!

One Newsweek article that will go in doctor’s and dentists offices everywhere, and it mentions Steve Sailer, Kevin Macdonald, and American Renaissance. And it quotes a very good review of Kevin Macdonald’s Culture of Critique. It’s a media touchdown, and it came from an unexpected quarter — a Marxist pop philosopher who spits while talking.

    I think Zizek did want to publicize KMac, but I think he has succeeded far beyond his expectations!

    Well done, sir!

  3. somewhere, some places, ideas are beginnining to get noticed. These kind of writings, one has to go out of ones way to find. SOMEBODY is finding them. The Left has spent the last 50 years running aound Culture, trying to stomp out ideas like Traditionalism, Racialism, Nationalism, like a homeowner trying to stomp roaches. They have crushed many lives, and careers, set out cans of Political Correctness, to fill the air with choking poisinous “smelly little Orthodoxies”,
    called in exterminaters like the SPLC, and still the ideas wont leave, or die. I suspect that a great many more people, even the supposed more “Liberal” Millenials are tired of being told what is “in Error”. I don’t go by people say, I notice what they do. People talk about Diversity, but actually spend all thier time refuting it. Even on the “Left” They move to white neiborhoods, tend to go to white public gatherings, spend a great deal of effort and expense to pay for schools mostly white for thier kids. Even in Politicaly Correct enviroments like Academia, go to the cafeteria, or other places where people gather, and look at who sits with who. Although their is lots of talk in this country about white people that marry, or have kids with other racial groups, in fact 90 percent end up living with or marrying other whites. the point of all this, is that you cannot undo human nature. People will revert to the norm eventually. Even old communists like Zizeck.

      Dis-integration, if you please. Integration is a good word. Like having integrity. Like the parts and wholes meshing smoothly.

      When the South was segregated it was the most integrated- now it is dis-integrated- like Detroit.

    We are going to see a lot of these people jumping ship because they’ve have sensed a change in the wind. I can’t say I am familiar with this person’s work but in general I DO NOT feel particularly forgiving toward these former GENOCIDERS, most of whom have done a LOT more damage than some obscure mudshark. To top it off they are grecycling the works of our academics! Unforgivable.

    Newsweek and any pub that wants to stay afloat had better hire some of our writers or risk being sued.

    • mindweapon says:

      Erin,

      The fact that KMac is being grecycled in Newsweek and his very clear and concise way of tying together Jews and liberalism and describing liberalism in a way that makes obvious sense but has never been articulated before him — the part about making white people feel morally bankrupt while the Jews themselves are the biggest racists themselves — that’s in Newsweek! In 14 years of this, I can say this is a huge coup for us.

    • mindweapon says:

      I edited my post to emphasize the fact that htey sum up KMac’s views twice, presumably in order to compare the paragraphs. But what this does is doubly reinforce what KMac says. It forces the reader to contemplate Jewish hypocrisy in “racism for me, but not for thee.”

  9. The only problem with this theory is no one actually reads Newsweek.

  10. Wow! From all the whining Non-Whites were doing about “microaggressions” by “hipster racists,” I knew that there were cracks in the leftist dam of Political Correctness, but a lefty like Zizek being “caught” plagiarizing a White Nationalist’s review of KMac’s stuff is a goddam leak!

    The MSM chortled with glee when despite all evidence to the contrary, the shoo-in President, Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election to BHO. Obamacare and the sorry economy pretty much indicated that a ham sandwich could have wrested the White House from Obama. They convinced themselves that their cobbled coalition of Non-Whites, gays and single White women saved the Oval Office for Barack. Needless to say smug Democrats were gleefully lecturing Republicans about being “too White” and not sucking up to People of Color enough. Boy were they wrong.

    Until, when after the dust settled, they discovered that the Republicans lost the election not because they weren’t friendly enough to POC. In fact the POC turnout for BO was not radically more in 2012 than in 2008. The Republicans actually lost because they weren’t White enough. The initial loss of White voters was estimated at seven million resulting in this reaction:

    But in terms of interpreting elections, and analyzing the future, the substantial drop-off in the white vote is a significant data point. Had Latino and African-American voters turned out in massive numbers, we might really be talking about a realignment of sorts, although we would have to see if the Democrats could sustain it with someone other than Obama atop the ticket (they could not do so in 2010). As it stands, the bigger puzzle for figuring out the path of American politics is who these [White] non-voters are, why they stayed home, and whether they might be reactivated in 2016 (by either party).

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2012/11/08/the_case_of_the_missing_white_voters_116106-2.html#ixzz37KI2cf2C

    Well, it turns out that the number of White Voters Gone Gault was over double of what was initially estimated. At least sixteen million. The Republicans are screaming fraud.

    http://newsninja2012.com/special-report-16-million-missing-white-votes-where-did-they-go/

    But if the Democrats perpetrated a fraud this massive, knowing they could get away with it just like they have installing a possible British Kenyan-Indonesian national in the White House, Fast and Furious, Ben Ghazi, etc. ad nauseum ad infinitum., why is their reaction to this news this rather interesting article by Joan “What’s The Matter With White People?” Walsh at Salon.

    First and foremost, Walsh answers the question of, who are these people? These Whites who did not vote in 2012 are disaffected and downscale. The greatest decline of White voters is in former “Ross Perot” strongholds in the West and Midwest. Downscale Whites outside the South don’t see either party offering much that is going to make their lives better.

    That’s sixteen million votes that neither party got, which is why La Walsh is changing her tune. She urges Democrats not to alienate White voters with triumphalist claims about a “coalition of the ascendant” that leaves them out.” In any case, she also cautions Democrats against what I call “The Three R’s.” Liberals must put away the assumptions that these whites are necessarily a) Rich, b) Republican and c) Racist.

    Take immigration. You don’t have to be a racist to oppose it – you might legitimately worry about the impact on low wage workers for instance.

    http://www.salon.com/2013/07/12/what_it_really_means_to_woo_white_voters/

    Gee, greatly inflated costs of living thanks to having to compete with the entire Third World for food and housing combined with massive pay cuts? What’s NOT for working class Whites to like about unfettered immigration? It’s not like they have families of their own to shelter and feed, is it?! You stupid bitch.

    Now, what is behind this “Come to Jesus” moment on the part of White Libtards? Why does it seem that more White Libtards than Zizek want to “Communist Party like it’s 1899?” The obvious answer is that this so-called “coalition of the ascendant” is a lot more fragile than they would like.

    See, White libtards decided to “elect a new people” and brought in Negros, Mestizos, and Asians to swamp any Whites who did not vote their agenda. But once people of color achieved superior demographics, it became clear that people of color had not gotten Francis Boaz’s memo about race being a social construct rather than Nature’s construct. Instead of controlling places like Detroit and Los Angeles, these White libtards were voted out in favor of politicians of color.

    What good is “having those Blacks vote Democrat for the next two hundred years,” rinse, repeat with the Mestizos and Asians if only people of color end up running the Democrat Party and wield all the power. White libtards suspect they were nothing more than useful idiots to be quickly discarded by a Mino Majority. In fact, I think, if you remember Howard Dean’s comments about the Dems needing to reconnect with the (White) guys who go to Nascar and have Confederate flags on their pickups was a manifestation of a sense by White libtards that they themselves were being increasingly marginalized in their own party.

    Remember that in 2008, Hillary pulled out from behind in the run up to the Democratic nomination and almost took it herself by sharply denouncing BO for his “bitter clingers” comments. That’s how desperate for representation White voters are. So, if the Clintons are serious about retaking the White House, they better do more than timidly dog whistle in the most implicit way possible and slap that gauntlet down HARD. They need to remember that sixteen million voters have been to this rodeo before and are tired of being dog whistled to during the primaries only to be kicked to the curb in time for the national elections.

    If White libtards want to take back their party, they better go back to dancing with those that brung them to the party in the first place. ‘Nuff said.

  12. I like the outside the box thinking in this post by MW, but in truth many professors plagiarize and none want to get caught at it. It can get you fired. At least in the US. Mexican activist Blandina “Bambi” Cardenas was fired as President of the University of Texas (the Pan American branch I believe) after allegations of plagiarism surfaced. The UT System is the most anti-white, pro-Mexican institution in the USA as far as I’m concerned. Yet they fired their fair haired girl. At best, one’s reputation is damaged, while raises are withheld from plagiarists.

  13. “a very clever and engineered media stunt by Zizek, to get the mass media to publicize Kevin Macdonald, Steve Sailer, and American Renaissance..”
    ————————– ——–

    Quite possibly, and your analysis is insightful.. But coverage in Newsweek is rather irrelevant when the big picture is considered. The mainstream media is not the key battleground for racialist “heriditarian” or “HBD” propaganda. The Internet- with its websites, blogs, tweets and Youtube videos is. A one-shot mention in Newsweek is rather small beer. If Steve Sailer and the boys are breaking out the champagne over this then it is obvious they are trading at a deep discount outside the usual HBD amen-corners..
