Chateau Heartiste banned from WordPress

https://heartiste.wordpress.com/

I thought this platform was safe from censorship because we are paying for it, and it’s a tiny company compared to Twitter or Facebook. But now it looks like EVERY internet company is censoring the same people.

  1. In this particular case he kind of had it coming for turning the place into a sub-Gab cesspit tbh.

    • This is terrible news because the world of PUA and specifically Roissy/Citizen Renegade/Chateau Heartiste was a gateway into the red pill for many. He should have changed his name and rebranded again to shake off the heat as he did in the past much like Eric Prince and Blackwater, then Xe, and now Academi.

      I know they’re going after anyone who isn’t controlled opposition (they also went after Jay’s Analysis) but CH should not have let his comment section degenerate into a cesspool. It was unreadable and even borderline insane with anyone semi-normal denounced. They were definitely thrilled at the idea of pushing the envelope as far as they could go without getting into illegal territory but now we all suffer because of their stupidity.

      I really hope he backed everything up because the loss of such past wisdoms/gems is a crime against knowledge.

      • 2 years ago, I saw a guy, presumably a prole, walking the streets of Manhattan, on the Ave of the Americas (6th Ave) wearing a black t-shirt with white wording on his chest that says “Blackwater”. My eyes followed his walk as I was moving the opposite direction, and he became increasingly uneasy that my eyes glued to his shirt while he was moving.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

      • He knew it was coming, he mentioned it a time or two over the last year. I’m sure it’s all backed up.

        Where and how he pops up, we’ll see.

        No one “Has it coming” for writing like his. Comment sections are comment sections, almost all are sewery these days. I really never read his comment section, but read almost all of his posts.

        We have a real problem on our hands here.

      • Gothamette wrong as usual and proof that women are more conformist/hierarchical hence having no place in dissident movements. They also want to shift the discussion toward a beta/cuck approved framework. The MAGA agenda of simply returning to 1998 is considered neo-Nazism in this day and age as well.

      What did they become?

      Meanwhile on YouTube, Sargon of Akkad has been demonetized, every vid. Also Paul Joseph Watson.

      Neither of those two were a patch on much of the stuff at Ron Unz. Neither ever mentioned that humans may vary by ethnicity.

      Sargon made some stupid joke about a Labour MP (he’s in England), “I wouldn’t even rape you.” I can’t remember the context. But he did on Twitter, not YouTube.

      Tim Pool thinks it’s because he running as candidate for European Union Parliament. I can’t see that at all.

      • The scuttlebutt was that Heartiste was a cadre of writers, one of whom included the original host. He is approaching middle age, and apparently he was trying to rebrand himself to get new fans. CH pretty much sucked the PUA angle dry.

        “They”? Was he transgender?

        Anyway, he became a full-on Jew-hating Nazi.

        “approaching middle age”

        No, well into it. He got exposed by some chick a few years ago, who stood up to his bullshit.

        He’s a middle-aged non-entity, late 40s, works in government. Hardly the alpha he pretends to be.

      • This blog is mild in comparison to CH’s diatribe. I can’t possibly find any reason for WordPress to ban LoftB, unless it becomes a repository for extremism against the elite or establishment of either spectrum.

        The Manhattan elite might find this blog of good use in terms of urban planning and real estate, because Lions blogs about NYC.

        I often comment about the social dynamics in NYC and point to affordable housing and the displacement of NAMs. They genuinely dislike NAMs, especially blacks in their urban space, surreptitiously polite and nonchalant with them, while they completely gentrify areas of the city to their benefit.

        The content of CH and his commenters serve no use for the status quo.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

        Mocking and undermining the sociological fallacy is per se extremism according to our betters and plenty of that goes on here. Of course, mocking the sociological fallacy should be the prime activity of any citizen of merit in today’s America.

    • Once upon a time he had the best comment section online but the past few years and especially recently it was garbage. Commentators were provocative for the sake of being provocative as everyone tried to be edgier than everyone else. It was a cesspool which he never bothered to moderate and likely contributed to this backlash.

      redarmyvodka

      May 10, 2019 at EDT pm

      • The CH comments section was actually rather strictly moderated. The messages that got through were allowed.

        Though, once you became a “safe” commentator for him you could write almost anything (but not anything) and it would get through.

        Shorter posts had a better chance. Longer posts could get through but they often had to be at least somewhat incisive unless you were an inner circle regular poster. I think there may have been a mild autofilter as well, especially perhaps for posters that the blog software wasn’t familiar with. Some posters he would allow to post because they would write anything (like nonsense). But that was limited to one or two of them. I imagine that there was a great volume of nonsense and attack posts that never made it to public view. He embraced a measure of chaos as a part of what seemed to be his understanding of propaganda method. I have to say that he seemed to have an upper level understanding of modern messaging, but I also get that it rubbed both his enemies and some of his friends the wrong way at times. Which, in metaview, was likely part of the overall messaging strategy.

        His jargon wasn’t difficult to decipher. It merely required slower reading and a moment of thought. Most of the time it was clever enough, especially when compared to other writing in the same topical sphere on either side. Again, most often the aim was messaging; not formal argument. The argument positions were rightly assumed to be shared by the readership.

    • Part of the problem with this private Internet company monopoly censorship is that they often give you no explanation, and there is no recourse. I myself am permanently banned from PayPal. I once called them and got as far as a real live person, who said “OK, let me see look into it… yeah, I wouldn’t think your account should be closed for that. I’ll forward this on to the appropriate team. You should be hearing from them in the next few days.” A few days later, I got an email saying “we apologize if there was a misunderstanding, but there is no appeal being offered on this decision.” It severely limits my options for buying stuff online and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.

      • @fortaleza84, I emailed you.

        If you make a new account, they ban that one too. When a person creates a new account, their system checks to see if anything about it–name, address, phone number, email address, credit card number, bank account number, social security number, IP address, anything–matches a previous banned account, and if so, they ban it. And also, creating a new account when you’ve been banned is itself a violation of their TOS, so you’ve just provided more ammo for them to use against you.

        There are entire forums out there for people this has happened to:

        This goes to show you the right wing camp aren’t as smart as the leftist, not by a long shot.

        Don’t be surprised in the coming years, if this country is able to hold on for its life, that Google will blacklist any right wing website from it searchable function, either of content or commercial, by using sophisticated algorithms to comb and collapse any site of this nature.

        CH has no calling on their platform.

        He could had a chance to stay intact if it was a right leaning company like Oracle.

    • The sites don’t typically give reasons. It makes the banning more scary, leaving people guessing. I don’t see any obvious reason Lion would be banned, judging from what I’ve read here (I’m recent though).

      He doesn’t talk about people who aren’t already public figures.

      The comments are vetted and much trash no doubt removed.

      He doesn’t write long posts himself. He typically links to a MSM article.

      The YouTube people often have huge audiences, typically with a lot young people. Their vids typically get hundreds or thousands of comments, often insulting the MSM and conventional politicians. It frightens the powers that be that large numbers of young people are becoming disenchanted with them.

      Plus they cannot make themselves anonymous because everyone can see and hear them. In high profile cases, like Sargon and Count Dankula, they lose much of their livelihood when Youtube demonitizes them. They become notorious and become unemployable.

      Sargon was also kicked off Patreon on the flimsiest of excuses. Not long after, another service opened, saying they weren’t censorious. He’s with them now. He has a wife and small child to support.

      In fact, the less extreme YouTube people (but still firmly anti-crazy left, often making fun of them) are the most dangerous because of their obvious ability to change large numbers of people’s thinking.

      A good example is Jordan Peterson, who came to public attention when Ontario was proposing new legislation to make it an offence to not use a person’s preferred pronouns.

      He is a popular tenured professor at the University of Toronto. He was sent two warning letters to shut up. He ignored the letters and said publicly on his Youtube platform that he would go to jail rather than endure “compelled speech.” (He had a large Youtube following because for several years he taped all his classes for the students’ convenience).

      The University then backed off, realizing that further action would only gain him more followers (he has 2 million Youtube followers). The only recourse was for the MSM to write hit pieces and for big broadcasters to interview him, hoping a good interviewer could rattle him and make him say something notorious.

      They failed, with one now legendary case of an English interviewer failing completely and becoming the flustered one.

      That reminds me, Americans are far safer than citizens of other English-speaking countries, who have no guarantee comparable to your First Amendment. Clearly, no American state could even consider legislation like Ontario did.

      Meanwhile people in England are being sent to jail for offensive tweets. Sargon, Paul Joseph Watson and Count Dankula are all UK citizens.

      • Just to add something about Jordan Peterson who thinks UBI (Universal Basic Income) is a bad idea, because it produces idleness and discourages people from working.

        UBI is a godsend for individuals who can’t claw their way into any fruitful long term relationship with a university (better known as tenure).

        Therefore, Jordan Peterson isn’t insightful for an academic. He should be canned for good.

      • People talk about ads as if they’ve never heard of AdblockPlus, Ghostery and NoScript. They block ads, trackers and scripts. I never realized how much of that stuff there was until Firefox recently had a bug that disabled all the extensions. It was such a pain to be force fed video ads before every youtube video or turn at Words with Friends. There’s a small learning curve in the sense that it will also block sites and functions you want to use. But if you fiddle with it and figure it out then it’s well worth the effort.

    • Though even in ban CH will remain politically relevant. Perhaps more so given the fact that his prolific output won’t allow him to be forgotten anytime soon and he is now a martyr of sorts – we all know how banning popular speech usually turns out. Hopefully he will reappear on another platform. In contrast, this comments section will be politically irrelevant as long as it is characterized by people who unironically write sentences that contain phrases like “MAGA capped basement dwellers”. Its out of touch with the broadest conservative movement in the United States to a degree that is painful to witness. Self delude at your own risk.

      May 11, 2019 at EDT am

      • Maybe, although I think “Out of sight, out of mind” is a real risk here. I used to follow a bunch of people on Twitter during the 2016 election, but once they were banned I didn’t pursue them over to Gab or wherever else they may have gone. Censorship works.

        It’s not even necessary to ban them. I was a regular reader of Lawrence Auster’s blog, but after he died and new content stopped I didn’t visit his site anymore, and that was the end of his active influence on me. I can’t imagine many people who missed Auster in his prime are deep diving into the web now and rediscovering him. Most people only read blogs and consume social media casually, and to be relevant you need to be current.

        Richard

      • @Richard Perhaps Auster had a permanent affect on your thinking while he was alive. Deed done.

        Frau Katze

        May 11, 2019 at EDT pm

      • True. I get the perspective on Auster. It’s accurate.

        As a matter of argument, I’d offer that it seems that CH had a higher readership than Auster. Which obviously would be in part due to his multi-pronged interests, for both of which he was at the top of the game: allowing for his unique approach to political commentary that I prior offered was (smartly) more propaganda than argument oriented (the masses shy away from long arguments and gravitate toward memes – and the NYT and WaPo are propaganda oriented). I also perceive CH as having had more of an overall impact in his and Auster’s broadly shared topic.

        Entropy eventually erases memory, perhaps in full. However, in the near to medium term future, CH may have some staying power. At least to the degree that his material is accessible at all through archives. We will see.

        David

        May 11, 2019 at EDT pm

      • Yeah,

        Auster’s a separate issue: once you’re dead you very rarely have more influence. (Guys like Lovecraft who get more popular posthumously are the extreme exception.) That is simply the way of the world.

        One nice thing I did see was that someone said they had actually become a father because of Auster’s advocacy of traditonalism, so at least someone out there is a living memento to the guy, even if he doesn’t know it.

      • I thought WordPress was like a hosting provider.

      • There are two ways to use WordPress. Either you use their servers (and make yourself vulnerable to being kicked off if you offend them) or you use an different server (considerably more expensive) but are safer.

        The activists then can only go after the ISP. The WordPress software itself is open source.

        WP could stop permitting you upgrades but couldn’t stop you on their own.

        There are a lot of ISPs out there. No one had been able to shut down 4chan, for example. Maybe they have their own servers or use offshore ones.

    • I have the same sense. lion’s greatest sin is openly discussing average IQ differences between races, which he doesn’t even write much about anymore. He is actually very soft and skeptical on redpill stuff (or at least comes across that way). Quite frankly if this blog were called to the attention of wordpress authorities they would probably just be confused. I say this because every person I’ve tried directing here found the smorgasbord of topics and lion’s idiosyncrasies confusing and odd. So far no takers.

    Even then, he was right about a lot of things, but his style became much more incoherent. I believe I read elsewhere that the original Roissy (who was far more eloquent) turned it over to someone else. That makes sense, and it shows.

    • I got the impression that he was deliberately incoherent. He used a lot of jargon and made-up words so that his blog was only intelligible to regular readers.

      I suspect that he wanted it that way. He showed no interest in persuading his ideological enemies. He was informative and insightful for those who share his worldview. For that, his blog was terrific.

        There are basically two sides (left vs right) with two groups on each side (the “people” and the billionaire / corporate interests manipulating them). Yes, capitalism and greed are taking precedence over the national interest. That’s why I keep calling democracy a fraud. But the left is still what I said it was.

        “Liberal centers like NYC and the Left Coast will be the last pegs of civilization, if the country decides to crackle.”

      I once spent a morning comparing old posts with new posts, and came away convinced that theory was wrong. The style was too consistent. It is clear, though, that he had aged out of the pick-up market. A few months ago he wrote a post apologizing for not writing as much about game lately, and promised to come up with new material on the subject, but he never really followed through. I don’t think he’s hitting the clubs anymore.

  17. Unz has his own site. Some people say he using parts of WordPress.

    There’s two ways to use WordPress: self hosting and using their site. The self-hosting sites would be harder to shut down. Activists would have to go after their ISPs. It had happened, but not often. Yet.

    They’re very determined, the censors. They’ve got some kind of control over Mastercard, affecting anyone relying on it for contributions.

    Blazing Cat Fur uses WordPress but he’s self-hosting. He used to be on Google’s Blogspot, until they put a warning page. If you entered the URL you got a sinister statement that some people found the site offensive. You could proceed at your own risk.

    • There’s nowhere to protest. A group of like-minded people could send a letter to WordPress. They’d toss it in the garbage. You’d be lucky to get reply, although they undoubtedly have canned replies for such cases.

      YouTube calmly offends thousands or hundreds of thousands of people with their activities but they don’t care.

      This is how bad it is: Google posted disappointing earnings this quarter, citing losses at YouTube, that they own.

      Demonetization hits YouTube too, as they get a cut of advertisers’ funds. Kicking off people with large followings loses them money too.

      Another popular feature, superchats, with people paying to have their comment read aloud and YouTube taking a cut has also suffered because forbidding superchats is a popular way to discipline wayward YouTubers. More money lost.

      It’s become so bad that it’s actually hitting Google’s bottom line. Will they change? Nope.

      It seemed to start with Trump’s election. There appears to be an unofficial agreement that these companies may have to suffer temporarily to stop Trump and his supporters.

      Conservative people don’t seem to like rioting or destroying property. It has to do with them being a different personality type. I don’t mean that conservative are cowardly but they would require more to take action.

      How often has Antifa taken to the streets (exclude Europe where it started some years ago). In the US alone there have been many cases. The non-alt-right conservatives, pretty much none. True alt right had Charlottesville.

  23. I agree that his blog totally went downhill. Speculating a bit, but I suspect a big part of the problem was a recent lack of success with women — my sense is that it’s just really difficult to score young hotties if you are a guy in your 50s with a middle class job. Especially in a world where Tinder makes it extremely easy for horny women to find a guy who is taller, richer, younger, and better looking than you.

    I used to check out his blog from time to time and it seemed his game reports got less and less frequent and the whole blog degenerated into incesent racism and anti-Semitism.

    That said, the real issue here is that there is a very real slippery slope problem.

      • “the Daily Stormer is up and running, apparently with a Chinese host.”

        Rather ironic considering that China doesn’t allow its own citizens access to most of the internet.

      • Lion that is exactly what Unz implied in his letter to the alt right. I was a bit put off by the cold tone of the letter when I think how much it matters – both for receivers like me and much more immediately for content producers when they are famous – but given all what Unz has done for the alt-right, it’s more about not being emotional and delusional, than indifference about the fate of the alt right.

        It’s sad there is no political will to defend the alt right from this attack. The only strategy would be to break down the media giants. If Trump could be convinced those media are really bad for him, maybe he would do something. But the legislative branch is bought by them . Internet free speech is becoming to the right what gun circulation is to the left.

        Bruno

        4chan is still running.

        Even being blocked by Google would have no immediate effect. His followers are kind of a group, they know where to find him.

  29. The old PUA content of Roissy/Heartiste was gold and it helped my personal life immensely.

    Though they did not originate with Roissy, concepts and tactics like rapid physical escalation (kino), refusing to be friendzoned, never put the pussy on a pedestal, and negging are effective and field-proven in my own romantic exploits. I wonder if I might be incel to this day if it weren’t for Roissy.

    In the last decade there’s been no evolution in PUA tactics, though, and Roissy’s been running on fumes for a long time, though he is a first-rate writer stylistically. He’s been repeating himself for years now.

    His comments section has been worthless for a long time as well, mostly a bunch of petty bickering between long-time cranks.

  30. As I moved from left to right I have stayed a free speech absolutist. The concept of silencing dissident voices has always been disgusting to me. I was a leftist because during the Bush years, when I became politically conscious, the liberals promoted free speech. One thing that has shocked me, absolutely floored me really, was how many of my real life friends who defended free speech in the past are all for attacking free speech after Donald Trump.

    I remember when I found Roissy’s blog in 2010. Back then his blog was on fire and it broke a lot of new ground in a worlds full of clown PUAs, like mystery, and blue pill advice that never worked (be a nice person and girls will come, be her friend first, etc). Thinking about it now Roissy was like the Aristotle of Game. He pointed out a lot of things that were false in conventual dating advice, and he got some things right, but he still got most things wrong. For example he never quite understood how important lifting and looks were.

      The left’s abandonment of free speech didn’t happen suddenly. It’s been moving in that direction for at least twenty years or so. But I think Citizens United was the staw that broke the camels back. That was a decision based on First Amendment grounds and after that, the left was over the First Amendment. Hillary’s first campaign promise was a constitutional amendment to overwrite the First.

      The blog is a major loss, but NOT unexpected. In fact, I am surprised it took this long. If he didn’t have a plan to move hosts then he ain’t too bright because regular commenters have pointed our for years he had a target on his back.

      As for the various comments here about the ‘content’ of the comments section I think I will just hold my tongue on that point. Clearly the ‘audience’ here is very different and has a comfort bubble they do not wish to be popped, not unlike the far left.

      • CH’s transition from game to politics was sparked by multiple factors but a major one has to be the fact we’re simply living in a much more political age. Not long ago when I posted my Trump is winning comment which CH elevated to a blog post highlighting my ideas for all to see under his banner your response was something along the lines of “ain’t nobody reading that” and its length was evidence that I was “sperging”. Many shared your views and responded negatively as well. At some point the purpose of blogging/commenting had shifted there from information, ideas, and knowledge toward entertainment, outrage, and ego stroking.

        CH’s recent batch of commentators were not supporters of free speech, fresh ideas, or even fair hearings. They mostly circle jerked each other while engaging in endless despair porn and expressing ideas that are not just way out of the mainstream they’re out of the mainstream in dissident circles as well. When somebody like myself popped YOUR bubble you were mostly triggered. It was only a matter of time until the hammer came down it’s just unfortunate a good blogger had to pay the price.

This reflects a larger switch in “libertarian” thought that their only main goal is open borders and will partner with leftists to support it. Nick Gillespie, and editor at Reason, recently ran an editorial suggesting that libertarians and the left ally to support open borders.

  39. This is an oddly personal reaction for me. I remember, as does everyone here, how the blog veered hard into (quite nasty) antisemitism from game, and that was one of the reasons I quit going there regularly. (With no game advice the thing got more and more useless practically as well.)

    And I did go there regularly, about 10 years ago up until maybe 3 or 4? That and half sigma got me through a rather nasty job. So it getting shut down is another piece of my early adulthood gone. Which is the way of the world, of course.

    Don’t look needy, work out, don’t pedestalize women, don’t agree with them too much–I got quite a few useful tidbits out of that site, as well as quite a few lays, to be honest. I once actually did get a girl over with ‘bring the movies’. And it was enlightening, too, to realize how many things I was doing to avoid getting in trouble were actually things the PUAs, with their superior knowledge of human interaction, were doing the opposite of. Of course, I couldn’t copy them directly, but it was useful to realize they were taking an opposing strategy with regard to risk, and to at least move mildly in that direction myself.

    It’s entirely possible that he got too old for the ‘game’ and decided to switch to white nationalism–makes as much sense as anything else and would fit his changing audience. Past a certain age you are not pulling down the hotties no matter what you do unless you are a billionaire.

    I distinctly remember the first ‘this is how america ends’ pic was the girl taking the selfie at the holocaust memorial, so he probably wasn’t antisemitic to start with. My guess is he figured, if that’s what the 4chan audience wants, that’s what he’s going to give them. I also remember his number of comments declining as he went more WN, with quite a few people going ‘what is this crap, I want to hear about game’.

    I guess he did become a flaming antisemite at the end…but it’s hard to hate a guy too much when he helped you get laid.

    • I do regret the turn to antisemitism and white nationalism that helped destroy the influence of that blog. Years ago, I first found it due to a link on Instapundit, when it was a game blog with right leaning sensibilities. Of course, Instapundit would never link to the WN/anti jew version that the site devolved into. But for a long time it was an influential blog that was really an important component of the right leaning blogosphere. Of course, all good things and all that… going down the WN/ant-semitic rathole destroyed the utility of that site. But it did have a good run.

      • From what I’ve read so far, I would say it’s very likely he is currently in a rage, thinking that Jews were somehow behind it.

        I once did a co-blogging stint with another guy. He isn’t anti-Semitic, he dislikes Islam. Apparently that’s stronger in Australia than North America. (They had the Cronulla riots in 2005).

        Anyway, one day Google took his site down. He was furious (I’ve never met him in person but I could tell from his writing).

        But he seems to have found a way to blog without people complaining. Take note, CH fans.

        He set up a blog on Tumblr. Tumblr gives you an option to make your blog unsearchable by search engines, including Google. He already had an audience. He has lasted several years now in this fashion. Way longer than before.

        That simple: make it impossible for Google to find it. The snoopers don’t come around.

    I’m just not convinced that that is the only possible explanation.

    Basically I think WordPress left themselves —or tried to leave themselves, some wiggle room so that we can’t be absolutely sure the cause of the site not being there until and unless more info comes out.

      • You’re mistaking making a website ‘unsearchable’ with it being invisible and having no cultural impact. CH wasn’t censored because it was searchable. You can easily ‘disallow’ Google indexing of your site, whether via robots.txt or having a simple human input required to access the real content.

        The issue is that any site with enough cultural impact to get noticed is now bannable. You can write away to your hearts content in your own password-protected LiveJournal accessible to only 5 people. But as soon as someone notices your site, whether via metrics or being ‘reported’, you will get censored. Making yourself unsearchable, unfindable, and unreadable except with great difficulty will only prove your ‘guilt.’

      • @Panther You cannot make your blog invisible to Google if you are using WordPress as Lion is doing, using WordPress servers. Maybe you could if self-hosting, I honestly don’t know.

        I do know you can do it with Tumblr, without the considerable hassle and expense of being self-hosting.

        My friend has a lot more than five readers. The way he gets them involves the Disqus commenting system. You can follow another Disqus user and be notified of all sites using Disqus that they visit.

        A large community with similar politics exists. It arose because many big American blogs use Disqus. They know each other in an online sense, often greeting each other.

        (He monitors comments, using a trusted US-based individual to cover the time zone difference)

        I should note that this community is not anti-Semitic. They are smart enough to know that Jews don’t run the world.

        Yet they are not falling for the MSM line about how peaceful and accommodating Islam is. That Islam is trying to spread to the West is no secret. President Erdogan of Turkey for one has said so openly. There are sites like MEMRI that translate articles from Arabic that contradict the western MSM. Muslims do run many countries. That’s not a secret. Sharia is the law of the land in many Muslim countries.

        Come to think about it, anti-Semites are so paranoid and irrational that a friendly Disqus community of them may not exist. It may be impossible due to their paranoia.

      • “I do know you can do it with Tumblr, without the considerable hassle and expense of being self-hosting. ”

        Self-hosting is less expensive, although you’re correct it’s more of a hassle. Most hosting providers will install WordPress with a single click, because it’s extremely common software. Customizing beyond that might require effort and technical expertise, but it’s definitely not necessary for a simple blog like Lion’s, CH, or most use cases. Even Unz is a relatively straightforward site for WordPress.

        Disqus is not really an option long term either. Disqus was used by Roosh’s “Return of Kings” website, but somewhere along the line they took action and banned him. If you get big enough to notice, and you are the “wrong kind” of person, they will ban you. Simple as that.

    Every wonder why IAs are underrepresented in the SWPL elite camp?

    https://pix11.com/2019/05/07/phony-bidding-war-costs-brooklyn-apartment-buyer-thousands/

    A word of wisdom is to stay away from a person with an Italian surname who brand themselves as a SWPL.

    Guidos are low class even as SWPLs.

    I just saw this on the news. A real estate agent who lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn rips off an Eastern Asiatic lady who overpaid for a pad in his pricey neighborhood when she shouldn’t. He has a surname of Giambalvo and was seen laughing hard with words on his text message, being celebratory that one of his clients overpaid for an apartment two years ago. He orchestrated fake buyers/bidders to hike up the selling price. The buyer later asked him if this was true, and he said yes, and was shocked that she is asking about it now.

    Anyway, to have a prolish TV network like WB11 to investigate a prolish gentleman is fun n games.

      • Some of Lion’s commenters made a point that working class and lower middle class people have a hard time assimilating upper middle class norms, let alone those of the truly elite. Much of it has to do with the way they were brought up and some of it has to do with their lower IQs.

        Italian Americans are mostly descended from manual laborers/the peasant class in Southern Italy, better known as the “terrone”.

        You’re comparing them to the Jews who have a strong cultural tradition of learning, and being part of the professional class, and a lack thereof, when it comes to working with their hands.

  48. I think Roissy’s comment section degenerated for ego related reasons. If you were one of his fanboys you could pretty much say anything you wanted no matter how awful it might be. I once made a mild criticism of his Game theories. There is a website called Stripperweb where strippers spend a lot of time talking about tactics to make money in strip clubs. Many of the strippers there try to claim looks aren’t that important and if you know what to do you can still make tons of money as a stripper. As someone who used to live next door to a strip club and spent hours drinking there, this contradicted what I saw with my own eyes. I don’t deny the validity of Game tactics in general but I think its advocates sometimes exaggerate its usefulness and that looks are still important. I made a comparison between unsuccessful strippers at the strip club and unsuccessful pua types at the the night club in his comment section. He then reproduced my comment and did a whole blog post attacking it. When I tried to respond in the comment section I found out I had been blocked from commenting and was never able to comment there again. This is the only place where I have ever been blocked from commenting. I showed my friends what I said and they all thought my criticism was pretty mild. I did agree with a lot of what he said in general, though, and I thought he was a good writer. His Game theories could be distilled into a good book, much the same way Roosh did.

If you’ve met an attractiveness threshold, then knowing how to talk to women is enormously beneficial.

  50. I’ve never been impressed with the idea of using jedi mind tricks to manipulate one’s way into another person’s drawers. But there are certain concepts and behaviors that one is at a disadvantage if they don’t know. Not only at a disadvantage with the opposite sex but against manipulative people from their own sex as well. This is particularly true for decent people. And a lot of it has to do with confidence and self-esteem. But I don’t think people should try to feign confidence, manipulate others or run up the score. Instead, they should do the hard work to be a worthy person because water seeks its own level.

    I’ve known a number of womanizers over the years. And I can’t think of any who ended up happily married with children. They were all either still single, divorced or trapped in a miserable marriage. I’m not just talking about men, either. I dated a couple of skanks who ended up that way, too. There’s no ‘happily ever after’ for people who’ve made a career of hopping from bed to bed. It’s the people who don’t do that who live happily ever after.

    • Manipulation is part of human behavior, everyone does it to some extent.

      Game is simply the act of mimicking the behaviors of men with a genuine abundance of options. I would say in most cases it’s rather benign. Most men simply use it as a little push to get them outside of their comfort zone. The mask eventually drops anyway because women are designed to sniff these things out and you get comfortable/complacent.

        Hahah, very clever. It reminds me of something Mort Sahl (remember him?) once said. “Modern women alternately bemoan the lack of virility in men and stamp it out whenever they find it.”

        “Or are trying to help heterosexual men have even a fraction of the sex homosexual men can get? ”

        I think that the frequency of gay sex is somewhat fake news. Think of it logically:they have a very small dating pool, and most of them hate the goods. (“The odds are good but the goods are odd.”)

        “He opened his mouth and a purse fell out.”

        As far as game is concerned, some of it made sense. Don’t be a needy bitch, rigorously observe boundaries, if she’s batshit, move on. Be very careful who you end up with. Avoid borderlines; they will ruin your life and turn you into a shell of a man. No problem with any of that.

      It would have been better, and more honest, if you just said that he hated him and are glad that he has been silenced and leave it at that. Such a mentality would also neatly frame much of what CH himself argued on his blog about women and the surrent state of society in Western nations.

    • Gothamette — no, it’s analogous to using your own damn telephone and having the phone company take it away because they don’t like the people you talk to or what you say. Remember back in the ma bell days you literally *didn’t own your telephone*. The phone company did. I guess the Autistican school of libertarianism fools would be just fine with that. “Start your own phone company.”

      Imagine if AT&T had cancelled the telephone accounts of people caught expressing communist ideas.

      We’d still be hearing the furor and rightly so, but where are the civil libertarians when communists aren’t the target? Hell, the most notable historical event in the 1950’s wasn’t 50 million peasants being intentionally starved to death by communists, it was a handful of omelet-maker sympathizers who couldn’t find individuals to produce their films for a few years. If communists had ever been banned from using telephones and banks, we have a national day of remembrance and every high school student would have to take a year long history course, in between 9th grade Holocaust Studies and 11th grade Martin Luther King History II.

      And say what you will about Unz, he hosts people worth banning and he’s challenging, exposing undeniable blackouts that shame me for thinking of myself as a generally knowledgeable student of history. That’s more than you can say for 10,000 utterly forgettable writers like Natasha Whynes who would never dream of saying anything that would get her banned anywhere let alone Amazon and whom I could read for 1000 years without ever encountering important facts of history that have been thrown into the memory hole.

And this Jamaican guy called David Alexander, who was an incel with a photography hobby. He accommodated them all, before idiots like Greg Eliot took over and it went downhill since then. There were quite a few hot women who were regular commenters as well. There was this Indian chick who sent nude pics once, and I think a Canadian woman who sang with his band.

  56. The Trump Administration is fighting for free speech online.

    No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!

    I almost can’t believe how quickly the Censorship State is gelling into our unquestioned daily reality.

    We’re only a few years away from having to store hard copies of dissident writings, in the form of paper books and parchment manifestos, in bunkers and buried lockers. Nothing digital will survive the foliocaust.

    FYI a few days before the 2016 election, Wormpress warned me about the content of a couple of blog posts, and asked they be deleted to avoid a deplatform, which I did. No harm no foul. (The supposed infraction was bogus of course, but I’m not gonna get worked up over a couple of shitposts that took the piss out of Paul Ryan.)

    This time around, no warning. No emails from Wormpress. Just sudden darkness.

    Someone got to them, and they flinched.

    The trigger, I think, was the second to last post in which I encouraged readers to buy tix to Roosh’s US speaking tour to support a political dissident. This bothered the fuck outta the worms at Wormpress or the SJW roving gang of heresy sniffers who promptly converged on Wormpress to demand my head for associating with a known “hater” i.e. a man not sufficiently embarrassed by his masculinity.
