The Woody Allen Fallacy

Spencer J. Quinn, Counter-Currents Publishing, August 26, 2019

When Alexandra Stern recently included a section on me in her book Proud Boys and the White Ethnostate, she did so on the strength of a three-part series I wrote in 2017 called “On Vetting and Entry into a White Ethnostate.” {snip}


There’s an old joke: Two elderly women are at a Catskills Mountain resort, and one of them says, “Boy, the food at this place is really terrible.” And the other one says, “Yeah, I know. And such small portions.”


{snip} If something is inherently bad, you want less of it, not more of it. Certainly, that’s how white people feel towards most non-whites, especially blacks. When they are not personally exposed to large numbers of non-whites in a non-white milieu, then having more non-whites in their country is a fine idea. But once they gain that experience and get to know non-whites for what they really are, then, suddenly, this generosity goes away.

This is what attracts me to the Dissident Right. The desire that whites have to get away from non-whites is perfectly honest and reasonable. It’s based on empirical experience, which, in turn, is based on all kinds of collectible and observable data: genetic, psychometric, anthropological, sociological, criminal, and historical. Both whites and non-whites complain about each other, but only one side is making sense. Observe:

  1. Proximity to non-whites makes whites suffer. Therefore, whites denigrate non-whites because they want less of them.
  2. Proximity to whites makes non-whites prosper. Therefore, non-whites denigrate whites because they want more of them.

Which perspective is more honest and reasonable? Which is based on a healthy concern for survival, and which is the punch line of a so-so joke from a so-so movie? This is why whites should never take the complaints of non-whites seriously in a white society. {snip} They are also dishonest because they conceal a selfish ulterior motive: non-whites wish to take advantage of white people solely for the betterment of themselves and their tribes.

An honest and reasonable approach would be for non-whites to praise whites for creating great civilizations, and also to state explicitly that non-whites have it better among whites than among their own kind. Mexicans do not immigrate to the United States because they want to be around Mexicans; if they did, they’d never leave Mexico. Also, non-whites would not want to transform white civilizations into something that isn’t white. That would be tantamount to killing the goose that lays the golden egg. If they were honest, they would show more respect for their generous white hosts and for the Truth. Non-whites don’t come to America or Europe because they are doing such a bang-up job running their own countries, after all.

But these people don’t show respect. They act like invaders, and they never fail to give in to anti-white bigotry in their politics. And when whites quite naturally resist this, they redouble their efforts against the whites, the very people who’ve been their benefactors all along – all because they want more out of white people, not less.

{snip} What is a white supremacist? In the eyes of non-whites, a white supremacist is a white person who wants to get away from non-whites: to effectively give them smaller portions, or none at all. Such a person will want to enforce borders, reduce immigration, eliminate birthright citizenship, and make it easier to apprehend and deport illegal immigrants. Such a person voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and will likely do so again in 2020. {snip} Because such policies harm the racial interests of non-whites, non-whites consider them enemy action regardless of intent.

{snip} This is why they demonize and promise to wage war against the very people who’ve been their benefactors for decades. It all boils down to the Woody Allen Fallacy: The very thing they profess to hate is what they desperately want more of.

Non-whites need to be called out for this. They also need to understand that they have no right to complain about white people, because white people don’t owe them a portion of anything.
