This really isn't that hard

Jared Taylor is upset because he talked to CNN and - surprise, surprise - he discovered that they are going to make him look bad on TV. How unutterably stupid do you have to be to voluntarily speak to the media these days? How difficult is it to understand that they are your sworn and dedicated enemy? Of course, the guy - he must be a Boomer - is still convinced that the executive producer who set him up is sincere and professional.
In April, CNN asked me for an interview with one of its hosts, Fareed Zakaria, as part of an hour-long program on “white nationalism.” I was reluctant. Programs of this kind don’t try to understand why people become “white nationalists.” They just dismiss them as “racists,” “haters,” and “white supremacists.”

I reluctantly agreed to the interview, writing to Miss McGuirk: “Against my own nature, I grow cynical. Still, I will permit myself to hope that the word ‘hate’ will not be in the title of your program and that my interview will not be sandwiched between footage of goose-steppers and cross-burners.”

CNN’s investigation of white nationalism will air on June 30, according to a note I received from Miss McGuirk:

The program is scheduled to run this Sunday night at 8PM ET—and Fareed will also feature part of your interview on his program at 10AM and 1PM ET. One caveat—when news breaks, CNN will sometimes postpone the air time. If that occurs, I will let you know the next air time.

Miss McGuirk did not mention that the title of CNN’s hour-long, even-handed, “serious treatment of White Nationalism” is called “State of Hate: The Explosion of White Supremacy.” This somehow undercut her cheerful assurance: “I believe you will feel your views are presented fairly and thoroughly.”

Liza McGuirk has been unfailingly prompt, professional, and polite. I cannot bring myself to doubt her sincerity. She edited the program, and maybe it deserves a different title. I will leave it to others to decide.
People have occasionally asked me what I think of Jared Taylor. Since I never paid him any attention at all, I did not have an answer for them. Now I do. I think he is stupid, naive, and attention-seeking.

What part of "don't talk to the media" is hard for these idiotic narcissists to understand? This sort of thing is precisely why I don't do interviews with anyone anymore. I learned my lesson after that Sad Puppies interview with Wired in 2015. No more interviews, period.* Not with CNN, not with YouTubers, not with aspiring journalists in high school, not with journalism majors at university, not with the New York Times, and definitely not with [insert your favorite content creator]. Don't bother asking me if I will talk to [fill-in-the-blank]. The answer is no.

The only reason I will do the occasional interview is if I happen to know and trust the other individual. But if I want to talk to someone, I'm much more inclined to talk to them on my turf and on my terms, rather than on theirs.


*Although I turn down the vast majority of interview requests I receive, I have made a few exceptions over the last four years. I talked to Amanda Robb of Rolling Stone about the success of Castalia House, which interview she later tried, unsuccessfully, to use in an NPR hit piece about comics. I also talked to Bleeding Cool as part of their retraction of falsely labeling me a "white supremacist", I talked to Jesse Lee Peterson as part of his fund-raising week, and I occasionally talk to Alex Jones and Owen Benjamin on their shows. Given the way in which Ms Robb subsequently tried to interfere with our crowdfunding at Indiegogo and how the Bleeding Cool editor-in-chief lost his job after the 17,000-word interview ran, the evidence suggests that even these exceptions were unwise.

Jared has good content, but hes sadly naive enough to think the sweet old grandpa routine is going to stop the media from making him look bad. It doesn't matter how obvious they look when framing you, as long as they have the sound bites they need, then the job is done. Most people today don't even have the attention span to dig for the original context anyways, so its even easier for them to discredit you.

Anyone who still believes in "any press is good press" is a moron.

Liberal and Conservative does not completely define the divide in this country, the social and political divide that seems to bedevil so many people at the same time.

There is nothing in Liberalism that keeps them from being a bigot and there is nothing in Conservatism that compels them to be a bigot. If racism, bigotry, and the whole segregation/integration is the topic, I have noticed that it is separate and independent of the Left-Right or Liberal-Conservative schism.

A bigot, racist, segregationist are simply the same terms used for those people who know that their enemies are still their enemies....and rivals, and competitors...even when the enemy is sleeping. To then, the enemy is implacable and determined and unrelenting, but most of all...the enemy STAYS the enemy. Even if you do not think the enemy is doing anything against you at this moment, the war (or struggle) continues and it is by no means over, nor should anyone pretend that it is, or relax the guard. If the enemy is not attacking at the moment, we need to attack the enemy, or at least add more sandbags to the barricades or maneuver into a better fighting position on the battlefield.

The bad old meanies that are called bigots, and racists, are simply people who believe the rivalry and competition and enmity never actually ended. There are lulls in the fighting but the war continues and enemies of the blood are against YOU, even if you are not against them. There is no rehabilitation for the enemy, they cannot change their ways or who they are, and the conflict continues because what causes the conflict ALSO continues.

Those who are NOT bigots, or racists, refuse to believe they have any enemies. No such animal to them. All they have are bright red lines that really should not be crossed and those bright red lines have retreated over time until they are circles, which they can barely stand in. There are no permanent enemies, in fact, they are only enemies during the moments that they across the bright red line. Once they jump back over that line, they are no longer enemies. An enemy is a temporary condition and every enemy can be rehabilitated, once they are taught about those bright red lines. After all, nobody needs or wants enemies in their life. We can chill and get along with anyone. It does not matter if we bother to remember history, since that is living in the past (but it is OK if we do it). Chuck all that into the dustbin (of history) and assume everyone is a friend and ally, or at least endeavor to make new friends, or at least coexist peacefully....no matter what their future plans may be for you. After all, it takes two sides to make a conflict and there will be no conflict if we refuse to participate.

Taylor's site AmRen has a lot of excellent content, but Taylor himself, perhaps because of the success of his book on Japan in the '80s, has always sought a certain degree of respectability...He has failed to understand that the stark lines being drawn in American society permitting no dissent from the insane doctrines of leftist orthodoxy have entirely ruled out rational debate or even discussion...Joe Biden is only the latest to step over the line.

Nearly a twenty year subscriber till it came down to the realization that Taylor is an intellectual who writes for the approval of maybe a dozen other intellectuals.

He would no more use a rhetorical quip to discredit a lefty than I would join NOW, and that is why he as bright and earnest as he is is the usual conservative stooge.

The content of his news letter was usually an article on a genetic study telling us what we had already guessed, a book review of the latest crap the left spewed in which the reviewer took great pleasure in fact checking and the usual "how could they do this to our beautiful race" anecdotal story, repeat.

Blogger Jim the Curmudgeon June 30, 2019 2:31 PM  

Taylor is one of those guys who is educated yet idiot, in Taleb's terminology. High IQ, Ivy League grad, but absolutely naive about how the world works.

American Renaissance generally refuses to discuss the Jewish role in undermining western civilization (e.g. opening up borders, promoting mixed race marriage, pushing feminism, etc). To Taylor, Jews are just another type of 'white' person. They ban people for mentioning Jewish power.

If you are a traditional nationalist, what are some of the things you might notice? The changes to the immigration system in 65, the gay rights movement, feminism, the devaluation of the dollar through the Federal Reserve, victimhood culture, pornography, promotion of degeneracy in media, etc etc. An awful lot of these things can be traced back to a certain group. Not exclusively, but they had a rather profound influence.

Blogger Fuzzums Wuzzums June 30, 2019 2:32 PM  

This is not the first time Jared talked to CNN. I saw an interview on YT of him getting grilled by some migrant chic for about 1h: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ol6GA4dMZw4. He came out on top and the reporter reluctantly agreed with him so nothing of that footage was usable against him.

Now it looks like CNN learned from their mistakes and was finally able to get that damaging soundbite out of him. He often puts himself in these situations and always came out clean so I don't blame him for thinking this time around it was going to play out the same way.

Jared Taylor is like the butler of some important royalty. Yes, he will cater to your needs but he does it in such a fashion he lets you know he's better than you in every single way.

@5 ArthurTintagel: "Anyone who still believes in "any press is good press" is a moron."

This. I left a brief comment elsewhere generally praising Taylor but criticizing his CNN misadventure as foolish and naive, and got "Oh but thousands of normies will hear his reasonableness and logic while you're a nobody" in response - and the idiot got a bunch of upvotes! The vast majority of commenters, even at most "dissident right" or ostensible HBD websites, are still, at heart, leftist equalitarians who happen to notice Negro criminality or Mohammedan rape or pick-your-poison. Most of them fall back on "it's the culture" as the problem for various non-White groups, and almost all push "assimilation" without giving any thought to what that really means (cultural and racial miscegenation and fusion). Reason #100000000 why I read and comment so much less than I used to. Hell, I've had Taylor's Amren ban some of my comments years ago.

It wasn't that it took Vox until 2015 "to realize it". There was a change in how the media pushes their narrative.

Vox is amazingly patient. He even wrote books on SJWs that were dumbed down for normies. Imagine standing beside a hole in the creek bank with a sign saying, "If you stick your hand in this hole, you will get bit." Meanwhile folks keep coming by, looking at the hole, and guess what they do...

I've followed Vox's advice and turned down about 3 radio interviews this year. After reading all of the horror stories about backstabbing interview scenarios--here on this very blog--there's very few people I'd trust in that circumstance. I'd do something with people I know, but not with strangers. My trust circle is small. I guess I'd trust public conversations with Vox, Owen, Men of the West, and a few other right-wing sorts and Traditional Catholic folks. But only in the written medium.

I say this, and yet I just interviewed E.M. Jones. I'd trust an interview with him, I think. I wanted to interview Sungenis once, but I didn't push that effort.

Taylor grew up in Japan and his detachment has served him very well in past interviews, even when edited against him. He's exceptionally good at them. Not just logically, but in presence and rhetorical effect. I think this is a mistake of over-confidence in past success. But he should just take the loss and move on. Whining about CNN being unfair is pretty cringe.

Blogger Mark Stoval June 30, 2019 5:42 PM  

Some have mentioned that "liberal" and "conservative" are meaningless terms now. I agree. I think Vox may have said something like that in a thread some time ago.

Thomas Sowell wrote "A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles".

At the center of his theory is that the "left" thinks that human nature is malleable and perfectible. The dumb asses think that they can build a heaven on earth if only the rest of us would stop resisting them. We are evil if we fight them don't ya see.

Those of us on the right have seen man as a fallen creature just as God has plainly told us. That is the opposite view of the state of affairs from the leftists.

When viewed as Sowell does, I can not help but see the "left" as Satanic. They have bought the lie that humans can perfect humans without any help from above. Idiots!

"Taylor has had the same ol song and dance for years now. Just search for old interviews. He went on Donahue's show in 2003 for pete's sake."

I immediately remembered that when I saw this. He has less excuse than anyone to believe the media ever operate in good faith. He should be at the head of the media boycott - not still falling for their lies. Something Taylor and Spencer have in common is this belief that somehow the whites in the media are capable of coming to their side or understanding them. Spencer especially seems to have more contempt for people like Cernovich than reporters at CNN which is very telling.

I respect Jared Taylor and he certainly has been courageous so I want to think the best of him. But you can also see this naivety in the AMREN content he puts up on YouTube. It is really only reinforcement for people who are already on his side. Though he has been good with promoting and encouraging younger nationalists who employ more effective tactics.

@18 "To Taylor, Jews are just another type of 'white' person."

This is not true. Jared knows completely and in detail what the jews are and what they're doing to us. Just as those of us with corporate jobs know and keep our mouths shut about it! The JQ is not his battle in this lifetime. HE is fighting an equally important battle -- the 'entry' battle for the normies. If you try to awaken a normie and start out -- as, alas, Big Bear does -- with "joos joos joos," MOST people will recoil and leave. That recoil is not natural, it's inculcated -- but very deeply, at the reflexive level.

If, as Jared has done for 26 long years, you can begin to get the normies to consider racial differences, they may, they often DO, stick around to hear more. You cannot build an edifice without laying a strong foundation. Recognizing the low-level race war is necessary before MOST people can EVER move further into who is directing it. And, since MPAI, most people who stay to listen will never move beyond racial awareness. As unhappy-making as that is to us, we must accept it: BETTER the normies understand racial awareness but not much more, than them joining our racial enemies against us!

And yes, alas, Jared IS pretty much 100% dialectic.

At the start they were going to break it down into a collection of 6 or 7 issue in both digital and physical and then eventually release the complete GN paperback. Sometime after the first three issues were released, they changed plans and decided to go ahead and release the GN in its entirety. At present we do not know if the rest of the individual issues will ever be released. So, just to be clear, at this time in order to obtain the complete story, you must buy the $35 GN. You won't regret it. The first three issues are on Amazon if you care to check the Look Inside previews and also on Kindle Unlimited.

Forgot to add: I think that Taylor may indeed be just this naive and gullible. Though it's hard to know from afar, of course.

Hard to believe he would be after so much experience in this realm. But stranger things exist.

I don't know why anyone would try to defend something so uniformly hated and held up as the ultimate evil in our society. The truth of such things does not matter. White supremacist is the worst thing you can be in modern society. Not even pedos are held in such disgust and contempt. He might as well have been defending mass murder or something. Even if they had given him a completely fair hearing, their audience was never going to do anything but freak out. He is living in the 1980s.

I don't know where you live (and everywhere is different), but white supremacy is NOT uniformly hated, nor is it the ultimate evil, nor is it the worst thing you can be. The truth of such things matter very much to those who value truth over ideology.

Is it the "white" part that bothers you most? Or would black supremacy be equally repugnant to you. No shortage of black supremacy in this society either, given the Congressional Black Caucus, United Negro College Fund, NAACP, BLM, Nation of Islam, SPLC, and the New Black Panther Party.

I never thought white identity or white nationalism or white supremacy to be any better or any worse than any of the other race or ethnic advocacy movements. You seem to think they differ more than simply by color.

In fact, very many people do not behave as though they are egalitarian at all.

@Don, he's talking about the zeitgeist, not about reality.

Don't sperge.

Only a psychopath would respond like that. "Nobody outside of my life matters." Howard Roark met every clinical description of a psychopath and if he was a self-insert of the author then so did Ayn Rand.


Nice strawman. Going from "I don't think of him" to "Nobody outside my life matters".

If you have a problem with Ayn Rand, take it up with her. I could care less what a fictional character says or does in a fictional entertainment.

Tarring anything someone says because you hate some of their opinions is SJW crap.

I heard the interview, he published it on AmRen YouTube channel. I thought he did a great job, and Zakaria came off obtuse and irrational.

Different people respond to different arguments. I respond much more to Jared Taylor's genteel manner than to rhetoric. He was instrumental in getting me to accept racial differences. If I respond to JT, than others do, as well.

That is, it's good to have different types of messengers.
