Ron Unz is letting me post stuff on his website, The Unz Review, now. It’s one of the biggest sites on the Internet. Well, he let me post one article, the one on the 10-7 death toll. We will see if he lets me post anything else. I do correspond with him fairly regularly.
There were comments on here that he’s maladjusted. I don’t get any sense of that at all. Socially he’s very appropriate. He’s extremely intelligent. His IQ was supposedly tested at 190 earlier in his life. For what it’s worth, Thomas Pynchon and Elon Musk are also said to have 190 IQ’s. He’s a pretty nice guy too. He never fights you if you are decent to him.
I also don’t get the idea that he’s an antisemite at all. Sure, he’s critical of a lot of Jewish behavior and he engages in a lot of hyperbole, but he doesn’t act like a self-hater. If anything else, he is a “completely logical” person in the sense that he wants to know the hard truth about just about everything. There’s a lot of good material critical of US foreign policy on there, so there’s a lot for a Leftist or at least an Alt Leftist like me, to chew on.
Of course the place is chock full of obsessive and conspiratorial antisemites, including a number of the authors. But this is good in a sense because if you read their stuff with an open mind, you can see just how nutty this “Jews control everything so we need to inflict harm on them” nonsense is. I’ve said before that if this type of antisemitism were true, I would just believe it. Problem is it just isn’t.
The place is also now swarming with White nationalists who of course often tie the Jewish Question in with their White nationalism with the theory that Jews are the enemy of the White race. Just as Unz is not an antisemite, he’s also not a White nationalist at all. Why he gives these folks a forum is beyond me.
Not everyone on there is a rightwinger, an antisemite, or a White nationalist. In fact, there are a number of what I might call “Alt Left” writers on there, or more properly anti-imperialists. These people are coming from the place where the Far Right meets the Far Left so to speak. Horseshoe theory is correct.
Sure most of the commenters are rightwing idiots, but so what? I’d like to see if he lets me post more stuff on there, preferably some Left stuff.
I’m not ashamed to be published on The Unz Review. Hell, I need to get published somewhere and I’ll take anything at this point. Earlier, American Renaissance wanted me to write an article for them, but they rejected it after I criticized White nationalism. And they told me I could go ahead and do that, too.
