My dear readers and commenters,
I think it’s time to take a break from blogging and write a book. The blog will stay up and comments will still be monitored.
Edit: For people still coming to this blog, I offer this comment, pasted below, by long time commenter Clytemnestra. I knew people were very angry out there, and I wanted to divert their anger energy away from frustration and violence, and into non-violent and productive projects. Some of my commenters, such as Clytemnestra below, have given me feedback that I accomplished this very thing. See in particular the bolded part of her comment below.
Outside of Clytemnestra and one other commenter who also said that I diverted her away from anger and towards entrepreneurship and self improvement, I can’t prove a negative. Nevertheless, I make the claim that is possible that my blog prevented someone from popping off into some stupid act of violence. The online pro-white community is a significant part of American life, and it is an angry one. Stormfront is the main online forum, and they do a good job of moderating and not permitting incitements to violence. So I am definitely not throwing Stormfront under the bus. Angry white people should be allowed to talk to each other. But the overall tone is anger, and the anger, I believe is understandable, but also something that needs be moved on from to greener and better pastures. Stormfront has 280,000 users, and according to the New Yor Times, Stormfront members tend to be young, at least according to self-reported birth dates. The most common age at which people join the site is 19. And four times more 19-year-olds sign up than 40-year-olds. Internet and social network users lean young, but not nearly that young.
I got 800 unique visitors a day on average, and 2000 hits a day on average. In the world of online pro-white discussion, I believe that I changed the tone and mood from one of frustrated rage, to entrepreneurialism and self improvement.
The forthcoming book is going to include a chapter of Clytemnestra’s comments. My commenters are going to be co-authors.
Rob, I am glad to hear that you are writing a book. I look forward to its publication so I can buy a copy.
Compared to some other posters, I’m relatively new to this whole scene. I am always cranky when I first wake up. “Cranky” is an understatement describing how I felt after my own rude awakening over the condition of what used to be my country and how far gone our race has become.
Mind you, for years, I felt that growing, unspoken, unidentified tension. I felt that sense that “something” was “rotten in Denmark.” I watched in disbelief, unable to comprehend the reason why the Americans I always thought of as honest, honorable, and forthright people with real values mestastasized into disingenuous two-faced, treacherous, cowardly hypocrites.
I got my rude awakening when I was forced to take an eye-opening “Latino Studies” class when I went back to school and realized that our authorities were actively encouraging other races to do precisely what they discouraged our race to do, even penalizing us if we attempted to do so; organize to pursue our own racial interests.
Everything from that moment started to make sense. I was no longer in the dark, trying to make sense of all the roadblocks that suddenly seemed to be rising out of nowhere for our people. My growing disquiet even though I forced myself to ignore the daily outrage, wonder if I was only imagining “minority” microaggressions, and tolerate nuisances lest I look racist.
Thank God I found your blog when I did. God only knows what kind of trouble I could have gotten into, especially after drowning in all those angry, negative WN blogs out there. Your blog was the only one that offered constructive solutions. That taught that there were legal, nonviolent ways to “fight back.” That taught me to think before I went hormonal on some asshole or two that desperately needed it.
Finding your blog encouraged me to take stock of my own contributions to the mess we’re all in without wallowing in endless guilt over falling for the okie-dokie and guzzling the Koolaid. You and the other people who post here (even when they pissed me off) helped me recover my sense of humor and acquire some perspective on things. All of you -helped me “think outside of the box” and come up with some creative solutions of my own.
The one thing I want to thank you for most of all, Rob, is how you dissected “The Beautiful Loser” theme of Hollywood with Caddyshack, etc. I confess I used to be the kind of person who would take a certain pleasure (and even felt morally virtuous) for disliking people that were more successful than me. Thanks to your Beautiful Loser exposition, I recognize I was a petty, envious person who was too lazy to compete with them. Now I dispassionately study successful people and draw inspiration from them.
