I find it pretty hard to believe that Jimmy has never heard of David Duke. I’ve definitely heard of him and I’m not from the South, but I think I’m around the same age. I’m pretty sure it was when Duke was running for governor, and doing pretty well, that he hit national notoriety.
On the other hand, I’ve listened to a lot of jimmy moore podcasts, and corresponded with him in email, and he strikes me as a very straightforward guy. I simply don’t buy that he’s a devious crypto-nazi or that he does much in the way of lying in general. Unless my bullshit meter is seriously broken, and I have no reason to think it is, my gut feeling is to believe him.
To figure out who you were talking about I had to Google it and Melissa’s bile aggregator site came up first, where Jimmy’s already been convicted without a shadow of a doubt in the court of PC doublethink. I just looked briefly, but there were some Duke quotes that would be perfectly acceptable had they been said by someone like Sharpton, with the appropriate nouns changed.
I don’t know if Duke is a neo-Nazi or just a white supremacist, but talking to a Nazi doesn’t make you one, of course. Here in Europe it’s still fashionable to be a Maoist, never mind that he killed way more people than Hitler. I remember hearing an interview with the band Alabama 3, on the BBC, who style themselves as Maoist and have a song riffing Mao, “Mao Tse Tung Said”, on the same album as their hit song that got used for the Sopranos. The band was joking about how their tour of the American South was a failure because these rednecks weren’t interested in their Maoist rap/country/blues music. Neither the BBC, nor the producers of the Sopranos, were worried about any sort of stigma of chatting with and plugging these followers of a mass murderer, for as long as he’s a left wing mass murderer, there’s not going to be any stigma (not that Hitler was especially right-wing of course).
Not that I care, I have Cold Harbour Lane and it’s a great fucking album. Having lived in Hollywood, and spent a lot of time around musicians, they are the last people on Earth whose political opinions I give a shit about, by and large.
A3 is just one example of hundreds here in Europe. The amount of Maoists or semi-reformed Maoists in Sweden’s pseudo-intelligentsia is simply stunning. And here in the Czech Republic, a country that suffered under imperialist communism Nazism is way more taboo than Stalinism.
It is simply amazing the hypocrisy of the PC mainstream left-leaning culture which tells us which mass murderers it’s okay to adore, and which ones ought to be cast into the furthest pits of hell. As far as I’m concerned, they were all statist war-mongering assholes.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to buy a Che Guevara shirt.
Ha, I still get lots of Google hits over my post in 2005: Che Guevara, Murderer.
While Sean and I get into our kerfuffles now and then in comments, he’s really pretty good at never being susceptible to what I was perhaps somewhat susceptible to in my last post: Thanks Jimmy and LLVLC Readers for Making My Book #3 In 2012, Even if You Are a Neo-NAZI.
Since that post and a good part of the roughly 100 comments so far, the plot has thickened. Besides Melissa McEwen’s VictimSaga blog that’s already been mentioned, CarbInsane put out a post right on the heels of mine that links here: JimKKKins: The Saga of Jimmy Moore and David Duke. In comments on a previous post she said she’d be doing this on Sunday (tomorrow). I guess she hurried up, wanting to catch my wave of unbridled controversy. Of course, it’s only me who’s into a bit of healthy controversy and the attention it attracts—certainly not someone devoted to the truth and only the truth like Evelyn. I’m all about traffic. She, all about public service. Her commenters are all dialed in on that.
I’ve linked up those other posts for only one reason, which is the basic object of this post and what goes to the lead-off comment by Sean. Go read those comments if you like, and especially CarbInsane. What you are going to find is the nicest example of bandwagon non-thinking, zero-distinction, collective mentality, binary thinking (good OR evil), political correctness (the biggie) groupthink imaginable.
It’s an interesting study because I believe that not many people are going to care much that Jimmy, or Dr. William Davis, or Dr. Doug McGuff did an interview on David Duke‘s website in the context of health and nutrition.
Who cares? The Inquisition cares. And let’s face it. That’s what we’re really dealing with.
They demand that you think in an approved way. That you come to the same conclusions they do, condemn what they condemn. That like them, you have a clear understanding of what’s approved evil and what’s approved virtue. But more than that, everyone is basically scared shitless to do anything other than a variation on a “me too” comment. Pathetic. I adore that they hate me, hate this blog. I want none of them. They can’t handle the sort of wild discourse here, where it doesn’t matter really that some commenter finds some value in a thing or other about what David Duke preaches. They want an echo chamber and nothing less will do. They’re afraid!
But I got caught up a bit myself, into this sewer of knee-jerk, automatic, non-discerning condemnation and I’m indebted to Sean for making me consider that I perhaps wasted an opportunity to make a much better first post on the issue—because I only really care about open ended paradigms, and not narrow-context, damn the heretic catechism as preached by Melissa, CarbInsane and Wooo.
What do I think of Duke? Minimally from what I can tell, a racist / separatist, someone with an irrational, conspiratorial fear of a Jewish conspiracy to control everything. What does that mean? It means I have no sincere interest. There’s no value there for me that I can detect. I don’t give a shit in the world about the color of anyone’s skin, I don’t care about pristine whites being diluted with black, brown, red or yellow skin (we’ll all be light brown in the end), and I don’t care that an ethnic culture that has seemed to gain a prowess in business, entrepreneurism, and the arts reaps the benefits of that prowess and uses their influence as best they can. To put a perfectly practical and not moral spin on it: I’m never interested in those who preach putting cats back in bags. I’m just as uninterested in those who make a huge deal over those advocating same—because you can’t put cats back in bags.
What if Jimmy even did know what Duke was about? I don’t believe he did but what if? From reports of even those who are no Jimmy fans, he stuck with the topic. According to his latest post—If I’m A Neo-Nazi, Then I Guess Dr. William Davis And Dr. Doug McGuff Are Too?—so did Davis and McGuff. And according to that post, Jimmy declined an invitation to come back on and discuss things beyond diet.
Missionary? Or, is the fear over being tagged with anything Politically Incorrect so strong that everyone is paralyzed in fear over even thinking it? People used to fear the Gulag over wrong thinking. Now, they have the luxury of just getting to be in the in-crowd by spewing the party line.
You: Melissa, CarbInsanity, Wooo, and mostly all of your commenters….Priests of doctrine with a choir all singing the same tune backing you up. …What a pathetic lot you and your sycophants are.
Open with Sean and close with Sean. Yea, isn’t it amazing how the intelligentsia is still steeped in commie doctrine? I never tire of linking up Professor Rummel, whose life’s work is in documenting the hundreds of millions killed by the sorts of regimes still heralded by our universities? Isn’t it amazing?

But let’s get all up in arms over David Duke who, near as I can tell, irrationally wants to put the cat back in the bag, keep the races separate, and keep the Jews away. It’s so awful by comparison.
