I don’t often insert myself into online tit-for-tats, but I feel compelled to speak up about this Bourdain thing.
To quickly recap, New Nationalist (TNN) author Russ Winter on Sunday wrote a post questioning whether Bourdain may have been suicided by nefarious elements. In his post, described Bourdain’s world view as not being one dimensional. For example, he described how Bourdain was a big critic of Israeli occupation methods in Palestine.
Within hours of Russ publishing his post, Twitter white nationalists started a mocking and trolling campaign against TNN, claiming that Bourdain wants white genocide and that he banned white people from one of his shows.
When Russ disagreed with some of the claims, he was accused of shilling for Bourdain, all the while never addressing the argument of Russ’ post – which, as a reminder for those with short attention spans, was about Bourdain’s so-called suicide. The Twitter virtue-signaling shit storm against TNN continued long after Russ turned in for the night and into the next day. Here’s an example.

Questioning the circumstances of Bourdain’s death is considered “promoting” him? Really?? To this, only one thing comes to my mind.
All kidding aside, the claims against Bourdain illustrated an all-too-common and frustrating error in logic called “fallacy of origin,” which Russ wrote about on Monday. Basically, fallacy of origin in this instance means that we should ignore Bourain’s possible murder by highly nefarious elements that we would all agree are despicable because Bourdain said a couple things that were perceived as anti-white and was half-Jewish.
For me, the claims also revealed a glaring ideological divide between TNN and others populating nationalist circles. In order to address the logic fallacy and philosophical divide, I have to examine the claims against Bourdain. This examination should not be confused with shilling or promoting Bourdain.
Who’s Anthony Bourdain?
To preface, if you’ve never seen Bourdain’s show – admittedly, I haven’t seen it since CNN picked it up — he was a chef who traveled all over the planet, from remote parts of second- and third-world countries to modern metropolitan cities, sampling food and chatting with locals. In the world of food, it’s often the Michelin-rated restaurants and five-star chefs that get all the attention all the time. Not with Bourdain.
Bourdain usually shunned the elite scene and headed to less-traveled – sometimes dangerous – areas to meet undiscovered local chefs, visit hole-in-the-wall restaurants and mingle with the gente. Over a meal, he would discuss with locals their food, their culture and sometimes their economy and politics. It’s only natural that westerners who have any sense of empathy come away from second- and third-world countries feeling a pang of first-world guilt. I know I did after visiting Haiti at age 11. Some feel white guilt. I didn’t. I’m proud of my heritage and love my people.
TNN didn’t share Bourdain’s world view – but NONE OF US EVER SENSED ANYTHING MALICIOUS IN HIM – and don’t throw at me that ridiculously obvious Photoshop job of Bourdain holding a jar with a baby in it or smeared with blood.
So, on to the claims. Examples are also listed in a Renegade article published Monday in which TNN is again mentioned.
Claim No. 1: Bourdain Thinks White Genocide is the Only Solution
In a restaurant discussion about racial tension in Germany, a German(?) man, referring to migration and crime, said in 70 years there will be no more white people in Germany, everyone will be cappuccino-colored. Bourdain, an American, seemed to imply that racial mixing was the only solution to cultural conflict. To me, the implicit statement here is that foreigners need German blood in them because they need to assimilate with Germany — not that Germans need to be eradicated or assimilate with migrants.
The view of racial mixing as a solution to conflict is something that TNN is staunchly against. Bad foreign elements should be expelled, not embraced — and this is especially true for Europe. Bourdain used Singapore as a general mix model. Some may need to do their homework, as that city is ethnically mixed, but with a dominant Chinese culture and gene pool. It is not heavily racially mixed.
Purists believe racial mixing is “genocide.” I’ll let you decide on that one. Personally, I find it ignorant and arrogant the way some people claim that if you’re half white you’re not longer white. Similarly, if you’re born to one Jewish parent and one Christian, you’re a Jew. Not even the National Socialists during wartime went that far:
Wannsee Protocol on persons of mixed blood of the first degree: “Each individual case must be examined. The prerequisite for any exemption must always be the personal merit of the person of mixed blood.”
In the U.S., those who approach nationalism and whiteness as an exclusive club to which only the racially pure can belong are, in effect, committing defacto white genocide because racial purity now in the U.S. is at low levels, especially with the new born. Truth is, when you map the DNA of humans, you inevitably find there is no such thing as racial purity. There is, however, racial identity and a race industry.
So, in an effort to keep white European culture alive in the U.S., wouldn’t it be more constructive to identify mixed-race or ethnic mix people as white, illuminate their understanding about European culture, inspire them to identify as white, and motivate them to perpetuate and defend European heritage at home and abroad? Just sayin’.
Claim No. 2: Bordain Banned White People from a Show
This “no white people” claim is misconstrued. For one episode of his show, Bourdain decided to go to Houston to check out the ETHNIC food scene and dispel a stereotype that Texas is all gun totin’ good ol’ boys. As such and true to form, he didn’t want to spend air time exploring versions of ethnic foods served by the city’s upscale white chefs. So when it came to sourcing locations, his producers allegedly put the word out: “No white people.” Of course, this pissed off some of the influential white chefs in Houston.
The source of the “no whites” comment that’s being shared on social media is a brief article from Paper City that’s just a recap of a Vanity Fair profile, which — as a brief — excluded context. However, the original article Paper City published about Bourdain’s Houston episode was rather glowing and provided full context.
Is all this worth setting one’s hair on fire about and ignoring a possible murder by much worse elements? I don’t think so.
America is all about diverse cultures. There’s no escaping that unless you move. The key is to protect your family culture and don’t deny other people theirs. This is a U.S. view. Europe is an entirely different story. Each of those countries has its own monoculture that should be celebrated, preserved and defended.
Whether it’s the U.S. or Europe, countries have to defend their borders and the national interest of their people. Outsiders have to assimilate or go. That’s nationalism. The fact is we are seeing a large mixed race, and ethnic mix population on the ground. But they need to be on board. La Raza types are very problematic in our model.
Whites around the world are under attack, so looking for anti-white genocidal types is a good thing- yes, they live. We encourage that. That being said, please understand that TNN authors are white survivalists, not white supremacists.
Russ dissents here- prefers the term white preservationists.
Did Bourdain deserve to be suicided by hanging for his kumbaya, brotherhood-of-man views and half-Jewish/half-Catholic heritage? You may think so. We don’t.
In Russ’ article Sunday, he wrote he related to Bourdain because of his age and world travels. What I think Russ subconsciously related to, on a deeper level, was Bourdain’s big heart and affection for all classes and cultures of good people. Both have/had a generous spirit and feel/felt a desire to champion those who are oppressed in a genuine way.
This isn’t to say that TNN is above criticism. But there’s a difference between critique and malice. Malice was expressed through hollow, virtue-signaling, purity-spiraling, fallacy-of-origins methods — the type of things one would expect to find with cultural Marxists on Reddit, not among one’s own circles.
Wrapping It Up
Trump on Monday met with “Little Rocket Man.” (Yep, Russ was right. Dennis Rodman was there somewhere off camera, too.) Trump accomplished what the past three presidents couldn’t – or wouldn’t. Will anything come of this? Who knows. What I do know is that left-wingers will diminish Trump’s accomplishment and right-wing Trumptards will over-hype it. The (((media))) likes war, not peace.
Personally, I’ve long sensed that North Korea’s nuclear threat is a hoax. Do they have a missile program? Obviously. Do they have nuclear ambitions? Certainly. But do they have nuclear weapons, or miniaturized nukes? No — but I think North Korea and the U.S. military industrial complex wants us to believe they do. And I think Un is breathing a sigh of relief today. He may finally be able to drop the facade.
Aside from all that, the meeting with Little Kim appears to be a positive first step in dialing down tension — at least for now. So, despite all that I despise about The Donald, I’m willing to give credit where it’s due. Well done, Mr. President. I’m sure our friends in Hawaii will sleep a little better tonight. My viking hat off to ya. Anybody got a problem with that?
Carrot and stick.
A Note from Russ Winter
I speculated that Bourdain may have been a “closet nationalist,” which may not be particularly accurate; but other than that, I retract nothing.
On Bourdain’s half Jewishness: when a person has half or quarter Jewish roots it suggests he may come from a family (mother in this case) not as engrained with Jewish racial supremacist beliefs and tendencies. Bourdain by his actions, including being a friend to Palestinians, did not behave as a hive minded sayanim.
The key point ipso facto is what will be the culture going forward?
In the real world I deal with non-European cultural mixing. My son is married to an Iranian. She is both a beauty and intelligent, so I get it. Racially she is white, and many Iranians and Germans and Poles share the same haplogroup (see analysis). I doubt if anybody reading this should have an issue with that, but if you do, I refer you to the Tony Montana clip above.
My son’s wife is more pro-American than I am. They are working on having children. I have a hunch she will be a good mother. These children will be brought up to be bilingual. Plus Iranians have strong family ties and relations. I can easily visualize striking looking grandchildren, as mixes can bring about exotic combinations. My goal, and of my son’s is to instill a good level of European culture (not Judeo-American) in them. His wife should not be an obstacle, but there will be a secular Iranian influence also.
Ladies and gentleman as we often say at TNN, welcome to the real, not cartoon world. It is not my first choice, but given the extremely low reproductive rates of European and American whites, this type of Eurasian or Euro-hispanic mix may be as good as it gets. The objective is to manage it, defeat the racial extremists like La Raza and many Judiacs, and work tirelessly against anti-white agitprop to keep the white franchise/culture above water- even if it gets mixed.
