200 reviews

I've never had a book hit that many Amazon reviews before, so to see it happen in a month is rather pleasant. It's also good to see that interest has remained high enough to keep SJWs Always Lie at #1 in the Political Philosophy category for the whole month since it was first published.

And speaking of reviews, Jan Weir of American Renaissance reviewed SJWs Always Lie. It's a pretty favorable review, although the reviewer is subject to what I think of as Clemens Disease; I'm considerably less famous than Bono, after all, but I don't often see articles about U2 that say "The pseudonymous singer, Bono (real name: Paul Hewitt Hewson). Anyhow, to the review:

While SJWs Always Lie is a highly entertaining read, I don’t want to leave the impression that it’s just a witty romp through the SJW jungle. It’s deadly serious about the damage SJWs can do to you and me as we try to get through our workday. One of their favorite venues for mischief-making is the Human Resources department, particularly in large companies that like to remind you from time to time that they have something called a Code of Conduct. This code is invariably vague, with lots of soothing phrases about commitment to equality, a “safe” workplace, and of course “diversity.” This is an open-ended invitation to all sorts of SJW mischief, which often takes the form of a whispering campaign against you, in which both accusation and accuser remain concealed from view. This has happened to the author, who eloquently describes the pit-of-the-stomach anxiety and confusion of being attacked by unseen assailants.

How to respond? Probably the most valuable part of the book is about what to do and not do if you’re attacked. Don’t apologize. Don’t resign. Fight back.

    Target the enemy at every opportunity. Hit them wherever they show themselves vulnerable. Play as dirty as your conscience will permit. Undermine them, sabotage them, and discredit them. Be ruthless and show them absolutely no mercy. This is not the time for Christian forgiveness because these are people who have not repented, these are people who are trying to destroy you and are quite willing to harm your family and your children in the process. Take them down and take them out without hesitation. If you have any SJWs working under you, fire them . . . .

Mr. Beale also proposes a long-term plan for SJW-proofing our society. I found this the most intriguing part of the book. It displays a level of sociological insight and gravitas that is quite different from the light, snarky tone found in other parts of the book and promoted on the book’s cartoonish cover. The author analyzes the deep rot that the SJWs have caused our institutions, explains how we have made ourselves vulnerable to their control, and tells what we can do to end this vulnerability. His suggestions are too extensive to summarize here, but inter alia, we are enjoined to: Build alternative institutions (e.g., home school your children, create alternatives to SJW-infested Wikipedia); defund and destroy their propaganda centers (e.g., ignore their entertainment media); deny them employment; keep them out of your organizations.

It’s a bracing call-to-arms, based on an honest concept of justice.
I would be remiss if I failed to mention that, like it or not, I am an American Indian (one brother is out on the rez this week, as it happens), and my great-grandfather did ride with Villa. Damn near got killed with him too. In fact, I was talking to one of my brothers today and he told me a funny story about how he was out raking his lawn recently and someone from his wealthy neighborhood driving by stopped his car and tried to hire him to mow his lawn. My brother wasn't at all offended; when the guy tried to apologize, he said, "why would I be upset that you think I look Mexican? I am Mexican."

I told him that he should have burst out crying and started a Patreon account; apparently that is the correct SJW-approved response to microaggressions these days.

Despite his height, that brother looks the most Mexican in the family; his equally tall doppleganger works at a Mexican supply store at which I bought a tortilla press last year. Ender actually thought it was his uncle for a moment and was extremely confused about what he was doing there. I look the most Anglo, obviously, whereas another brother looks sufficiently Indian that he was invited to join the American Indian group at his college by strangers.

Having written a book about speech and thought police, perhaps I'll have to write a book about race police one of these days.

I don't know how close my ex great grandfather-in-law ever came to dieing with Villa; probably right up I would imagine. Those riders did not sit around in the rear area drinking beer. There was no rear area in Mexico in those days.
I love to hear these anecdotes about your relatives. Had you never mentioned any of this over the years no one would have guessed.

Oh, was out of town and off the net for a week but purchased the prose version of R. Nelson's first installment of the rewrite. It's a bit strange reading that after the screenplay format. I'm still not sure which I like best. It would be a bit of work; but, it would be a part of Rolf's profile or gravitas or whatever, to do his works in both through his career. Possibly double the money, as well. Just a hint/thought.

"for your protection" is one of the darkest sayings ever. They're killing you for your own good. It's for your protection. So how many people now feel safe? How many racketeers feign altruism?
One result. Suicide among 15 to 45 years olds is the biggest cause of death in how many countries?
These are the core of their delusions I suspect, perhaps there's others I've missed?

1. Separation of Church and state
2. Moral and Cultural Relativism
3. Evolution - all things are naturally progressively improving.
4, Materialism, man is a machine/ what's physically quantifiable is all there is.
5. That secularism exists.

Vox, congratulations on the success of SJW's ALWAYS LIE. It's an excellent read, but also a timely one. I suspect it will continue to be relevant and influential over the long run.

Also, I was annoyed by Mr. Beale’s self-description as a Native American and Mexican-American. Supposedly he had a bandit great-grandfather who rode with Pancho Villa, but photographs of Mr. Beale don’t look at all Amerindian or Mestizo.

Dear American Renaissance (and what kind of a poncy, high-falutin snooty name for an evil organisation is that anyway? I'd have gone for something more manly, like COBRA KAI or F.I.S.T. American Renaissance brings to mind fat guys in frilly shirts and mid-range hotel chains aimed at business travellers.)

Please stop whitewashing the Supreme Dark Lord of the Evil Legion of Evil.

When you reach a certain level of evil overlordship race really doesn't matter anyway. What race was Dr. No, Fu Manchu, or Darth Vader?

Nobody cared, because they were too busy being killed/choked/attacked by spiders. (I think Dr. Manchu was some sort of Chinee, but it's hard to tell because he was played by an Englishman. He might just have been squinting the whole time.).

We all bleed red blood, AmRen. As you will find out for yourselves if you ever see the oubliettes and sacrificial altars and warg pits and spike chambers and razor-wielding shadowmen of Castello Malevoxo.

Pray that you do not. And should you ever receive a magificently hand-written invitation - on suspiciously fine and supple parchment - to one of the Dark Lord's private hunting parties, DO NOT RSVP.

Re: Siblings looking more like one race than another,

I can attest to that as well. Even though my family doesn't have that much Amerindian in us, (probably something like 1/32), my oldest brother came out with black hair (same as dad, but everyone else had brown), slightly swarthier skin, and less tolerance to alcohol.

Mixed races don't seem to be a *completely* mixed.

Blogger Steve, the Dark Ninja of Mockery September 26, 2015 6:33 PM  

automatthew - whenever I see your username, I'm reminded of Automan.

I imagine you have a shiny blue suit and a perfectly hairdryered mane. I dressed up as Automan for Halloween 1985. In those days store-bought Halloween costumes were just a cheap plastic poncho with a rubber band affixed mask that may, or may not, have looked vaguely like whatever character they were supposed to be. Despite me wearing a blue plastic bin liner covered in stars and with the word "AUTOMAN" printed in large, friendly computer-type letters on the front, nobody could guess who I was supposed to be. But they gave me nuts and tangerines anyway so it was a draw.

Anyway... Mel & Kim were right about being "respectable". It's a fool's errand at best and gammatude at worst. People who are concerned above all with what other people think of them don't achieve great things.

Dammit, it's really annoying trying to identify people these days without their feather headdress and ponchos. And what's with that name anyway; Mr. Beale? It shouldn't be that difficult to come up with a more authentic sounding name.

When I was youngr an got out in the sun more, laborers on construction sites would automatically address me in Spanish. On one job, I ran into an older fellow who was the significantly-more-tan doppelganger of my Uncle Bill (who had been dead for 10 years by then). My ancestors were on the other side of the Mexican Revolution - Uncle Bill was fond of telling me that Pancho Villa stabled his horses in their living room the day after the family fled.

Blogger Anthony September 26, 2015 7:06 PM  

Speaking of mixed-race kids not looking very mixed - a woman I know has a white mother and a black father - in pictures, he's very dark. I did not know she was half-black until I saw the family picture on facebook, becuse she's fairly light-skinned and doesn't have sterotypically black features. Her sister, on the other hand, is much darker, and has some black features, though at a guess, most people would identify her as Hispanic.

That right there is the way healthy, balanced people respond to what SJWs ridiculously call "microaggressions." "Microaggression" is a fancy-shmancy term for "interacting with real people in real life." Real people are not your marionettes who will dance on a string for you. Sometimes, they might be inadvertently rude or just merely foolish. A well-balanced man brushes it off, laughs it off, or even fails to notice. An SJW cries all over the internet and starts a Kickstarter campaign.

My grandfather's grandmother was a Cherokee living in the Rez in OK and in every family picture he looked like he'd just taken off his head feathers for the photo. He could have easily passed for 100% full blood with his black eyes and swarthy skin. I was born with blonde hair and green eyes, but I tan at such a ridiculous rate the Mexican lady I work with remarked one summer, "You don't look like no white girl!"

"I think Dr. Manchu was some sort of Chinee, but it's hard to tell because he was played by an Englishman..."

According to Sax Rohmer, the devil doctor is half Chinese, half British. Philip Jose Farmer later gave names to these parents, Sir William Clayton and Ling Ju Hai.

He is described as " tall, lean and feline, high-shouldered, with a brow like Shakespeare and a face like Satan, a close-shaven skull, and long, magnetic eyes of the true cat-green. Invest him with all the cruel cunning of an entire Eastern race, accumulated in one giant intellect, with all the resources of science past and present, with all the resources ... of a wealthy government ... Imagine that awful being, and you have a mental picture of Dr. Fu-Manchu, the yellow peril incarnate in one man."

This has probably been asked before, but do you or Markku have an opinion on the indirect value of buying from Amazon versus directly from Castalia? I've been of the opinion that sales rank on Amazon and "suggestions" by the Kindle software serve as de facto advertising for the book. Does that translate to more volume? Having bought a boatload of digital Castalia, I almost immediately have new titles appear on my Kindle as suggestions.

At any rate, congratulations on the success of SJWsAL and Castalia overall. Looking forward to the next Somewhither volume and AoDL. I'm surprised, with the delay, we haven't yet heard: "Vox Day is not your bitch."

Well Darth was a white man, I guess. What remained looked pretty white when his helmet came off. And, his last name is not Ubwegwe or Sanchez.

Fu was a Chinaman. Straight-up Chinee. (I would expect people that associate with injuns to know that.) The correct nomenclature back then was 'chink' but that wasn't a slur against Fu, specifically.

My dad is Germanic; looks it, but wears his ratty old dungarees and faded sweatshirt to sweep the driveway, prune the front hedges and paint trim, etc.

He's been offered intinerent gardener employment more than once. The thing that progs don't perceive about the anger and distaste for the so-called 1%ers is that it's the European types: people who never get their hands dirty doing yardwork or housecleaning, that are disliked. They may even be less wealthy than the guy who repaints his own trim: doesn't matter.

It's the natural republican loathing of aristos. It's what the Occupy parasites tapped into to gain broader public support.

I rather imagine that, on a blog post about SJWAL (a book about the emotional over-reactions of adolescent-minded adults), a comment about the craze for hyper-pope-adoration is not at all off topic.

There's a deliberate strategy to manipulate people's emotions and short-circuit their critical thinking skills. That is the whole point of the "pomp and circumstance" style of government event management.

I was reading through a bunch of the newer SJWAL reviews on Amazon yesterday.

Some are really funny.

It seems that some kind of course correction occurred to the later SJW reviews, and they started giving it 3 stars instead of 1. Probably because a lot of them said, Look at the 1 star reviews and that is exactly what the book is talking about!

Also, some of these are actually verified reviews.

The SJW is buying your merchandise, and putting 3 star reviews.

Maybe they are trying that theory that if they make Vox successful enough, he will get bored with them from counting money.

Were-Puppy @55: "Maybe they are trying that theory that if they make Vox successful enough, he will get bored with them from counting money."

They're probably reading SJWAL for the same reason we read Alinsky, or Patton read Rommel. However, as the title is accurate -- it is mostly about what they do, and how to deal with it -- I don't see how it could be of much use to them, aside from maybe learning something about themselves.

SJWs already have their established set of successful tactics for the glorious revolution; what could they possibly do differently in response to the counter-revolution?

Blogger W.LindsayWheeler September 27, 2015 1:14 PM  

This is not the time for Christian forgiveness because these are people who have not repented, these are people who are trying to destroy you and are quite willing to harm your family and your children in the process. Take them down and take them out without hesitation. If you have any SJWs working under you, fire them . . . .

This is called "Law of the Jungle" and not "Lex Talonis". It is the law of "kill or be killed". This law was introduced into Europe by Karl Marx and Engels who called for the genociding of reactionaries. SJWism are the stormtroopers of Cultural Marxism. SJWs seek to destroy reactionaries and so the only response, is what VD says above in his book. He is right; it is the American maxim, based on commonsense, "Fight Fire with Fire". It is the way it has got to be.
