Unz umbrella

I'll now be blogging at The Unz Review. Please bookmark and update feeds accordingly. A few reasons:

- At some point Google, which runs Blogger/Blogspot, is likely to scuttle the blog

- The comment system is better

- I don't think it hyperbolic to assert there is nowhere else on the internet as accepting of the full spectrum of ideas outside the Overton Window than The Unz Review

- Ron has let me know he will exert no content control whatsoever. The subject matter and content will be just as it has always been

- Greater visibility. Dissidents are easier to ignore when they're occupying solitary outposts way off the beaten trail

Congrats!

Congratulations, but the deplatforming trend is very worrisome.

Thanks very much.

Yes it is. It's weird to see the internet 'devolve' back towards blogs and away from media platforms for everything that is outside the Overton Window, but to use the giant tech platforms is to go about your virtual life with the sniper's kill light squarely on your chest in hopes that he doesn't decide to manufacture a reason for why he needed to pull the trigger.

Honestly, I think social media turning into Picus News is a good thing. Social media basically killed off the glorious blogosphere ecosystems of the mid to late 2000s. It would be great to return to that format.

Congrats!

Looks like comments are closed at your Unz house.

Anatoly,

Emphatically agree. Glad I don’t just sound like a curmudgeon pining for the good old days that will never be again in so doing!

Z,

Heh, I jumped he gun. Ron didn’t want to announce until everything was moved over and ready to go. My page isn’t anywhere on the main yet. But it’s been a week since I posted and I have a lot of fun posts in queue.

Excellent. Will be following you regularly.

Dan said...

Great!

Did Ron choose you or vice versa?

This is (sort of) the big leagues and decorum is good, if only to honor great genteel men like Buchanan and Sailer that you will be beside.

Do let us know what happens to your traffic numbers.

MBlanc46,

Thanks very much. I sincerely appreciate regular readers and commenters heading over there with me. This is a virtual community I've learned an enormous amount from and one that also regularly provides post topic ideas.

Dan,

Ron asked me seemingly out of the blue. Any sort of editorial control would be a dealbreaker for me but Ron wants one thousand flowers to bloom, it appears. He's been great so far. I suppose I have someone to thank (Anatoly, maybe?) but I'm not sure who!

I'm happy you'll have more publicity, you deserve it for your awesome job. Even if some part of Unz's blogger annoy me a lot (propalestinian, putinolatrian, 9/11 derniers***)

Anyway, you have chosen a very powerful angle to attack the Left system : stereotypes matters. :)


***PS : I'm not a guy wich like scream "conspiracy theory" each time. Simply, there are some I believe (Old earth creation, resurrection, 39/45 stuff) and others I don't (flat earth, 9/11, jews behind everything everytime, aliens, repitlians, alex jones thinking about ritual sex murders, etc.)

Good luck. Perhaps you can add no (6) I won't be clogging up your comments blog any longer. One piece of advice, though, whatever degenerative brain illness Unz suffers from it's not impossible it's contagious. Keep your communication to emails.

I can get to your actual articles (http://www.unz.com/anepigone/white-republicanism-by-state-in-the-trump-era/ ) but the link in the post doesn't work yet.

Oh, this link also works: http://www.unz.com/author/audacious-epigone/

Holy shit congrats man! You will do a great job there. I thought they lost a lot when Razib left but you'll really add a lot to their content.

Jokah Macpherson said...

Your days of responding to (almost) every comment are probably over; that's one of the things I always like about your blog. But it comes with the territory.

Ja D said...

Congratulations.

Jig Bohnson said...

Well congrats are in order, maybe, AE. However echoing a few others here I won't be following you over there, I don't think. The Unz commentariat, and lately Unz himself, is a vomit of retarded and aspie repetitive obsessions (Holocaust denial, moon landing denial, muh Palestinians) that I don't find to be worth my time. Let a thousand neckbeards bloom.



Audacious Epigone said...

Gabriel/Jig,

Damn it. The comments in the first post of mine there don't show much in the way of any of that.

Jokah,

Yeah, you may be correct. However, I will always respond with the same frequency to those I've known before making the transition over there.
