Censoring Pound

In the middle of last month, I mentioned a letter I found in my late father’s belongings from a guy who fought against the Germans in WWII and even described some battles to him. That post even contains links to my scans of those missives.

At midnight I made a different, in a sense opposite, find also in my father’s belongings: a book by Uwe Frisch about the German musician Gerhart Müench (1907-1988) who emigrated to Mexico in 1953. [1]

Müench was my mother’s piano teacher. We can even see him giving her a lesson at the National Conservatory of Music of Mexico City for 25 seconds in this video from 1970.

Müench, born in Dresden, was a real scholar, and not only in music. What impressed me about Frisch’s little book, which doesn’t even have a spine, are its last pages (44-45): it collects a poem by Ezra Pound dedicated to his friend Gerhart.

Given that Frisch wrote the book in Spanish (where among other things he translated from German an essay by Müench) now that I wanted to read the original in English of the poem Pound dedicated to Müench, I came across a surprise. The core part of the poem is missing in the PDFs I saw on the internet!

It is very annoying to retranslate a poet into his original language because one lacks the original text. I don’t know if it was deliberately censored, but the part of Pound’s poem that I didn’t find on the internet today is precisely the part that mentions ‘hellfire’ and ‘the fiery river of Hades’ that became ‘Dresden’ because of the Allied bombing, and Pound mentions Gerhart by name in that city ‘while a fiery sky still pours…’

Pound thus speaks of the Hellstorm Holocaust in Dresden, which may be why he was censored in some editions of his book. But his original English words may have been different from the ones I put in inverted commas, as I now retranslate it from my Spanish booklet into the original language.

If there are Pound fans who have an edition of The Cantos where this poem appears uncensored, it would be nice if he came across this post and quoted in English the lines I highlighted in orange on the second page. Both of my parents used to mention Müench in their conversations. Before I discovered Frisch’s booklet I was unaware that he was born in Dresden.

The BBC brainwashed me

As we see in the highlighted posts ‘Myth’ and ‘Throne’ which appear in red letters at the top of this page, it is the story we have been telling ourselves for the last few decades that has produced the darkest hour for the white race. That is why it is so important to assimilate the meaning of the Shakespeare and Faulkner quotes in the post I uploaded a little after midnight today.

A pen pal overseas has informed me that someone, who surely hates me for what I write here, has been impersonating me in the comments section of Occidental Dissent (OD) writing nonsense and using my full name. I haven’t been able to locate the specific threads because the admin of that site has been unwilling to respond to my emails (I guess the admin also hates me for my criticism of his site!). Whoever the guy is who’s posting comments in my name without the OD admin banning him or her, the hatred and contempt that many feel for what I say here might be better understood if I confess that, before, I was exactly like them.

The books I devour, I underline copiously. If you visit my library, you will see that many of my books are marked not only with highlighter pens but with my hand-written footnotes. They are a real treat to open a window on the normie I was in the last century.

In 1999, when I was living in Manchester, I bought and devoured Laurence Rees’s The Nazis: A Warning from History, a BBC book. It is Allied propaganda at its worst, precisely the propaganda exposed in the aforementioned ‘Myth’ article. A couple of decades after I read the book I saw an internet image of Rees standing next to a Negress. Cuck Island Britons like him commit ethnosuicide precisely because they have been telling themselves stories like this one from BBC TV, and then passed on more formally to books.

When I lived on that island, propaganda had infected me about the Third Reich and the Second World War. The things I wrote in the blanks of that book represent a window into my biographical past that sheds light on those who now hate me because they still think as I did last century.

The climactic pages of The Nazis, obviously, are descriptions of the so-called Jewish holocaust. The César I was last century wrote, in the book, things like: ‘By now, there should have already been a plot to kill him [Hitler]’ (about a passage on page 107); ‘Here it is clear: even the British didn’t recognise the danger in Czechoslovakia after the atrocities in Kristallnacht and humiliation of the Austrian Jews’ (about a passage on page 116); ‘Wow: a decent German among monsters’ (about a passage on page 129); ‘This is why I bought the book: just as I think, let’s distribute guilt to all the German people’ (about the introductory passages on pages 10ff); ‘Clear-cut case of folie à nación, Austria’ (about a passage on page 110); ‘Close your heart to compassion. Act brutally, Hitler’ (about a passage on page 122), ‘Now I know why I unconsciously identified myself with Stauffenberg [the ringleader of the bombing of 20 July 1944]’ (about a passage on page 215); ‘One good thing really came out of this trip to England: discovering the BBC’ (when on 14 June 1999 I finished reading The Nazis).

Well, well… If I can have empathy, and even sympathy, for the brainwashed César of the last century, I must now have it for those who haven’t crossed the psychological Rubicon.

What would I say to the César of the last century if I could visit him through a time tunnel?

First of all, I hope that by now visitors have seen my post yesterday linking to a video by David Irving showing what I believe about the historical facts of the so-called holocaust from the viewpoint of what Irving calls ‘real history’. Let’s start from that, and also from what I responded to Jewish Enrique Krauze in The Occidental Observer on the subject. Krauze’s position is the same as the position of Rees in his BBC book, where on page 194 Rees picked up a quote: ‘Nobody can explain why the Germans did it’ when the explanation is so obvious that even the Jew Albert Lindemann laid it out in his scholarly Esau’s Tears.

But there is more to it than that.

The César of the last century had to cross the Rubicon. To move from identifying with Stauffenberg (!) to wanting history to be told before and after Hitler (!), which is what I want now, requires a great metamorphosis.

The first step, I have already confessed on this site, I owe to the fact that on 20 April 2010, Greg Johnson posted in the comments section of OD the full text of an article by Irmin Vinson, if I remember correctly this one, which Johnson then published in the webzine Counter-Currents and eventually in print along with other essays by Vinson.

That was the first stepping stone for me to start crossing the psychological Rubicon.

I don’t want to link here all the other stepping stones I had to step on before I reached the other side of the river because it would overwhelm the reader with countless links. But even the first stone gives an idea of the direction in which I was heading.

I want to say a final word about César in the last century.

There is something I underlined a quarter of a century ago in that book that I still believe, ‘Despite being widely bought [Mein Kampf] it was not widely read [in Germany]’ (page 90). That’s because, in my humble opinion, the Führer had to divide his message in twain: a message analogous to today’s American white nationalism for the masses, and a more anti-Christian one for his inner circle of friends. The problem wasn’t Hitler’s hypocrisy, but that the masses of Germans were unprepared to receive his full message (He didn’t say anything to them without using a parable; but when he was alone with his own disciples he explained everything…).

This bifurcation of the NS message is now unnecessary. Hitler’s after-dinner conversations, an anthology like The Fair Race or Savitri Devi’s memoirs linked in my featured post explain it so clearly that, unlike Mein Kampf in the 1930s, they would be devoured as highly entertaining novels once the American troops leave Europe and the Germans and Austrians reinstate the freedom of press eliminated since 1945 (again: see what Irving said in yesterday’s post).

Prison!

by Benjamin Power

I’m sad to read about Cristopher and Tyrone. I hope they survive their prison time in one piece, in what must be a very disappointing and stressful situation.

I’ve gathered the idea that, in the UK at least, prisoners arrested for [purported] TACT offences are in general shunned and ignored, if not subject to disapproval and shaming by those of the main body of Nationalists and Dissents [emphasis by Ed.].

Their cases are briefly mentioned, as any voyeuristic titbit of current affairs is briefly mentioned, but I get the idea there is limited support and concern afterwards, and most are quickly forgotten and left to their fate. I’d imagine any smaller groups of National Socialists would be more compassionate and loyal towards them, but they remain fiercely overshadowed (even) by the political optics and moral crusades of these image-conscious personality cultists.

I note that The Independent carries an article from the 12th of October 2023 stating that a senior England and Wales judge has ordered judges not to jail rapists due to overcrowded prisons, including the early release of some inmates. Also, on the 29th of October 2023, BBC News reported that the Sentencing Court for England and Wales is telling judges to impose more community sentences, again due to prison overcrowding. The Council has written a document suggesting that “judges need to take extra care in assessing the lives of offenders from specific backgrounds including young adults, women, people with dependants, people who are transgender, ethnic minorities or people with addictions, learning disabilities or mental disorders.”

Following these two recent UK newspaper articles, I wonder if soon British prison inmates will be disproportionately those native citizens convicted on thoughtcrime and political prisoner charges. The establishment’s anti-white regime certainly seems to be preoccupied with the notion of far-right terrorism, at the expense of all genuine dangers to the British people. The authorities are simply cracking down on their political enemies in tandem with their general long-term population-replacement drives, much as the unpopular Police have a professional necessity to meet their targets, cynical as much as they are anti-white, perhaps keen as an organisation to redeem themselves of the media’s judgement that they are institutionally racist.

As you know, I’m facing a similar situation myself, come September 2024. Despite my own charges being for the possession and sharing of hard libertarian survivalist manuals, the Police were very keen indeed to highlight (and confiscate) the 6-inch National Socialist pennant hanging beside the oil paintings on my wall, totally private from the public, and indeed the small, discreet Swastika necklace under my clothes, much as they have taken great care to diligently catalogue and photograph the various air-rifles, air-pistols and rifle crossbows I kept in my collection, all legal under British Law, and obtained above board, and which I was accustomed to target-shoot with on my friend’s private country estate.

In a better world, I’d suggest to them that my National Socialist perspectives, or indeed any ideological perspectives, were none of their business. The rest seems to be equivalent to the US anti-gun hysteria, and excessive despite the relative innocuousness of these sporting weapons.

Also, I tried putting to my lawyer that to this day Wikipedia’s pages on Ragnar Benson and Kurt Saxon contain active PDF links to a great many of these survivalism manuals, and indeed Amazon’s UK servers quite happily stocked their catalogue at the time of the arrest in 2021 but he says it’ll make no difference. I think I agree with him. Having disregarded all due process thus far, I can’t see these cold fanatics changing their minds no matter what is presented to them. The ‘social stigma’ of their allegation among State care professionals and within my family and the bystander assumptions based on their equivocation between sharing controversial documents and genuine acts of violent terrorism has been my steady undoing the entire way.

I can only hope that eventually some solidarity forms among the natives of this country. I wish the two commenters well.

P.S.

This is a postscript to my post yesterday on the imprisonment of two Englishmen for what Orwell called thoughtcrime. I find it strange that the sites that allegedly defend white people who rebel against the System have not, to date (they were jailed on the 4th of this month) said anything about this case, while the old sage of the video I embedded in yesterday’s entry is not one of us. For the same reason, I will leave this postscript for a few days without adding new entries. Let’s see if, this way, some who belong to the English or American WN ‘movement’ will start saying something in their forums!

Since as editor-in-chief of this site, The West’s Darkest Hour, I maintained a certain friendship with Tyrone Patten-Walsh (pen name for this site: ‘Joseph Walsh’), I feel compelled to link to some of the articles Walsh wrote for this site, or in which Walsh was closely associated with the content; for example, the podcasts we maintained before the System cancelled our SoundCloud account.

But first I would like to link to an October 16, 2018 article by the other Englishman, Christopher Gibbons (pen name for this site: ‘Chris White’), also imprisoned for thoughtcrime, which we published on this site: ‘The day Covington died’. Like the well-known Paul Ray Ramsey (Ramzpaul), who visited Harold Covington and even posted videos talking to Covington on YouTube, Chris tried to visit him but had the very bad luck that Covington died right after Chris arrived in the US!

Walsh’s entries are as follows. Since in many of them, the links to the podcasts are broken due to the cancellation of our SoundCloud account, at least you can read the comments from visitors in the comments section.

Tyrone, Chris

and the UK

Just today I learned of something that happened a couple of weeks ago, about the subject of my post last month that two Londoners, who had commented on this site—Tyrone Patten-Walsh and Christopher Gibbons—had been prosecuted and found guilty for what they said on Chris’ podcast Black Wolf Radio.

I met both of them in August 2014 when I attended a peaceful BNP demonstration outside London. After the peaceful demonstration, I went with the whole group of young English men for a beer in a pub. While it is true that Tyrone and Chris liked revolutionary novels, such as what Harold Covington wrote, they never told me, either personally or by correspondence (I used to exchange emails with both of them, especially Tyrone) that they planned to do anything illegal. Ever.

Since, as I said in my post last year, the judge, prosecutors or even the System news story I reproduce below, fail to quote verbatim what Chris and Tyrone were saying in Black Wolf Radio I used to listen to, I assume they were jailed simply for thoughtcrime—the kind of pronouncements about which they would never have been jailed in the United States of America, thanks to that country’s First Amendment.

I’ve said it a couple of times and it bears repeating: Bloggers or podcasters who live in Europe, Canada, Australia or New Zealand should consider moving to the third world (where I’ve chosen to live). This is what podcaster Gonzalo Lira, murdered this month by the Kiev regime, advised. Gonzalo was murdered precisely because he failed to comply with his own advice (Ukraine is not third world but second world, and it is illegal there to criticise the Kiev regime).

Below I reproduce the System’s text on imprisonment, apparently for thoughtcrime, as they fail to cite verbatim whether it is true that Chris and Tyrone instigated others to commit terrorist acts. Pay particular attention to the penultimate paragraph, insofar as it suggests that it was thoughtcrime (‘homophobic, racist, antisemitic, Islamophobic and misogynistic comments’) rather than terrorist plots, or encouraging others to commit terrorist attacks, what has been punished this month:

Neo-Nazis who targeted [really?—Ed.] Prince Archie jailed for 15 Years

Two far-right British podcasters who encouraged acts of violence [really?—Ed.] against ethnic minorities as well as making derogatory comments about public figures including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Prince Archie, have been jailed for a total of 15 years.

Christopher Gibbons, 40, and Tyrone Patten-Walsh, 36, were jailed on January 4 after being convicted of committing crimes under the Terrorism Act 2006, between March 2019 and February 2020.

Gibbons and Patten-Walsh were both found guilty on eight counts each of encouraging acts of terrorism, with Gibbons convicted of two additional counts of dissemination of terrorist publications.

Gibbons received an eight-year prison sentence and Patten-Walsh seven years.

The two men from London were arrested in 2021 following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command that focused on material they created, including what the police described as a “neo-Nazi online podcast.”

Titled Black Wolf Radio the 21-episode chat show contained a number of homophobic, racist, antisemitic, Islamophobic and misogynistic comments, some targeted at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their son.

In June 2022, prosecutor Anne Whyte QC told a London court, per the BBC, that Gibbons had described Prince Archie as an “abomination that should be put down.”

Gibbons also claimed that Prince Harry should be “prosecuted and found guilty and judicially killed for treason.”

Discussing the sentencing, the Met Police’s Counter Terrorism Commander, Dominic Murphy, said per a press release that Gibbons and Patten-Walsh’s material was “exactly the kind that has the potential to draw vulnerable people—particularly young people—into terrorism.”

“We are determined to identify and hold to account individuals pushing this material. In this case, officers reviewed hours-upon-hours of material to present a compelling case,” he said. “I hope this case and today’s sentencing sends a clear message that there are serious consequences for those who share terrorist material or encourage others to become involved in terrorism.”

Gonzalo Lira used to say in his videos that the repression of dissidents was going to escalate terribly in the West shortly. Now even I don’t feel safe visiting the UK again; for example, for having quoted extensively passages from Covington’s novel The Brigade on this site. By the standards that imprisoned Chris and Tyrone perhaps those novel quotes could be interpreted by the English justice system as ‘incitement to terrorism’ or something similar. So—

Goodbye, England!

From the comments section of the above-embedded video about the Chris & Tyrone case:

• ‘The other problems with such laws is that Police and Judges are left with the almost godlike decisions to prosecute’.

• ‘Government should never be able to tell us what we can and cannot say’.

• ‘7 and 8 years seems pretty harsh considering that judges routinely hand out joke sentences to people who actually do harm to others’.

• ‘Their sentence including Islamophobia means criticising the religion of child rapists comes with a 7 or 8 year prison sentence. Britain has Sharia now’.

• ‘In Scotland you can sit at your dinner table and if someone says something you don’t like you can report them to the police’.

• ‘Verbal attacks on Whites are ignored, while the very same words pointed towards minorities will [make] the law fall upon the speaker like a ton of bricks’.

• ‘As an English man in England I’ll think and speak my mind truthfully and factually. F the government’.

• ‘Shouting “fire” in a crowded theater is welcome when you believe there is a fire, and is then a moral duty!’

• ‘Free speech is a myth—every debate about free speech soon turns into a discussion about restrictions on free speech. Even those that say “I believe in free speech” always follow it with the word “but” and then go on to describe the restrictions they want imposed on speech’.

And so on…

Gonzalo

(1968-2024)

According to Tucker Carlson:

Gonzalo Lira, Sr. says his son has died at 55 in a Ukrainian prison, where he was being held for the crime of criticizing the Zelensky and Biden governments. Gonzalo Lira was an American citizen, but the Biden administration clearly supported his imprisonment and torture. Several weeks ago we spoke to his father, who predicted his son would be killed.

Chilean-American blogger Gonzalo Lira, known as ‘CoachRedPill’ and aged 55, resided in Kharkov and transitioned from blogging to YouTube commentary following the escalation of the conflict with Russia in February 2022. He was detained by the Security Service of Ukraine last May on charges of discrediting the Ukrainian leadership and military.

I liked Gonzalo Lira’s humour. His gestures mocking the madness of the powerful in the West were sometimes similar to mine.

Alas, Gonzalo didn’t follow his own advice: emigrate to the Third World (his native Chile would have been fine) to avoid the thoughtpolice. He went, of all places, to Ukraine to tell the truth about the war! The Ukrainian thoughtpolice arrested him and apparently killed him with the same methods as many killed in the Gulag: unsanitary conditions in prison. Watch what Youtubber Styxhexenhammer666 said today about the murder of Gonzalo Lira here.

Two former commenters

…on this site are going to jail?

Tyrone Patten-Walsh used to comment quite frequently here under the pen name of Joseph Walsh. The last time I visited London I met him and his friend Cristopher Gibbons, who also commented on this site under the pseudonym Chris White, although very rarely.

Some visitors might remember Black Wolf Radio, where Chris talked to his pal Joseph Walsh (Tyrone, as he was known in the London Forum). They talked about things not unlike what we have said here, or what Andrew Anglin has said in The Daily Stormer.

But apparently the UK lacks a Brandenburg law[1]: a refinement of the First Amendment and these two Englishmen, who as I just said have commented on The West’s Darkest Hour, will spend some time in jail!

Tyrone and Chris were tried separately; a retrial was ordered due to irregularities in the prosecution case. Earlier this year they were found guilty but sentencing has been deferred until January. Based on the conduct and remarks of the presiding judge, a Londoner I also met during my latest trip is anticipating a sentence of about eight years for Chris and somewhat less for Tyrone.

England, the land of my English roses, is gone!

[1] According to Wikipedia: ‘Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969), is a landmark decision of the United States Supreme Court interpreting the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Court held that the government cannot punish inflammatory speech unless that speech is “directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action”.  Specifically, the Court struck down Ohio’s criminal syndicalism statute, because that statute broadly prohibited the mere advocacy of violence’.

Blood libel


In his post on Tuesday, Kevin MacDonald said: ‘The “blood libel” is a reasonable belief given Ariel Toaff’s book on medieval Ashkenazi practices.’

His words caught my attention enough to read the afterword Toaff wrote in the second edition of 2008 of his book that caused a stir the previous year: Paque di Sangue (Passovers of Blood).

Yesterday I read the whole afterword and it seemed to me that MacDonald is right to consider Toaff a sound scholar. However, what Toaff says is something much more nuanced than the cartoonish way of looking at the issue, inspired by Christian imagery (see e.g., Hieronymus Bosch’s painting).

But it did Toaff no good to be not only a sound scholar but the son of a highly respected rabbi of Rome. He was cancelled as the vilest Goyim by the same forces that cancel us.

The Toaff scandal reminded me of yesterday’s article by Gregory Hood in American Renaissance, which opens with the words ‘The single most important cultural change of the last 10 years is not transgenderism, Black Lives Matter, or even social media. It’s the end of free speech.’

What Hood omits is that there never was, really, freedom of speech in the West. Alexis de Tocqueville was right from the start: you are allowed to speak only if you refrain from breaking the taboos of the unwritten law, even in the land of the famous First Amendment. So-called freedom of speech has always been a hallucination of those who have been sailing strictly within the waters of accepted discourse.

Tucker

Gonzalo Lira’s take on Tucker Carlson yesterday and today.

A commenter said earlier this month: ‘Tucker needs to stay on the air, waking up White minds. Criticizing the ADL is as extreme as he can get on the Jewish issue. And he was very brave to do that!’

But now he’s gone…
