“I want nothing more to do with either of you.” — John Kaminski
John Kaminski is on the warpath.
In under two weeks, he has stormed off two websites in disgust, promising never to write for them ever again because of alleged “censorship”. The two websites in question are Renegade Tribune and Darkmoon.
Let me examine the facts impartially, without attempting to take sides. I will do this by quoting other people rather than by offering my own opinions. First, here is Kaminski himself in a recent comment to our website:
Though the failure of the video in question to mention Jews was a drawback, would inclusion of the mention of the Jews’ creation of feminism have done anything to change the points made in the video? No, it wouldn’t have. In this irrational assault on my attempt to raise the issue of women’s intrinsic biological indifference to social sanity, what we have here is a case of political correctness trumping reason and honesty. I sincerely believe that the majority of women in the world would not trade their liberation for anything as abstract as in-group cohesion, and the result, as the video accurately states, will be the destruction of civilization, which is already far advanced. Regardless of who invented this insane social strategy of feminist irresponsibility, the real fault lies not only with the men who permitted it, but with the women who enthusiastically accepted it. The fact that I am not allowed to say this on either Renegade Tribune or Darkmoon not only is a fascistic prohibition of my freedom of speech, but will result in my stories no longer appearing on either venue. I have no wish to be associated with websites unwilling to foster free and open discussion of controversial issues.
So far, so good.
Kaminski believes that every website or media outlet to which he submits his views is under moral obligation to publish everything he sends them, word for word, without alteration or editorial intervention of any kind. If Kaminski sends a letter to the New York Times, for example, raging against Jews and questioning the Holocaust, that newspaper is under moral obligation to publish his diatribes or else incur his extreme displeasure. If it dared to “suppress” his letter, it would be guilty of “censorship”.
Do you spot the logical fallacy here?
This is an email from John Kaminski to Lasha Darkmoon, found in her inbox yesterday. Lasha has forwarded this email on to me as she is still running a temperature from a stiff bout of flu. She is consequently unable to deal with the matter herself. The email from Kaminski is very short. It contains only one sentence:
“This,” John Kaminski tells Lasha, “is what my audience thinks of what you and Kyle have done. Which is why I want nothing more to do with either of you.”
The email then forwards a letter of support sent to Kaminski by his devoted supporter Ms Cartier McCloud who runs a “White Nationalist” website — a website so extreme in the viewpoints it puts forward and in the inflammatory language it uses — that no respectable White Nationalist website would wish to republish anything written by the over-the-top, feisty firebrand Ms McCloud.
In her website — placed at 23,980,629 in the Alexa ranking system — Ms McCloud has posted riveting articles with scary titles like “Cock Sure Sand Niggers”, “Let’s Bring Back Lynchings”, “Black Ape University & Their White Ass-Sniffing Lapdogs”, and “Kiss Me Nigger” — in which she refers to black children as “baby monkeys”, “chunky monkeys” and “chittering monkeys.”
These are hardly the types of articles you would expect to see featured in Kevin MacDonald’s sober and academically respectable White Nationalist blog, the Occidental Observer. Nor would they have a hope of appearing on Kyle Hunt’s Renegade Tribune site or in the Darkmoon blog. So a relevant question needs to be asked here: “Would Ms McCloud have a right to complain of “censorship” if KevinMacDonald, Kyle Hunt or the editor of the Darkmoon blog should reject one of her inflammatory articles?”
If the answer is “YES” — if publication of Ms McCloud’s incendiary submissions is mandatory and obligatory — if “free speech” demanded the publication of every word uttered by Ms McCloud, including “nigger” lynchings, sniffing lapdogs, chittering monkeys, and “cunts” — then perhaps John Kaminski would have an equal right to complain about “censorship” if the New York Times tossed his latest rant to them about Jews into the wastepaper basket.
This is something neither Kaminski nor his admirer Ms McCloud seem to understand: that no media outlet anywhere is under moral obligation to publish their writings if they don’t wish to do so. You are free to knock on my door and ask for a free meal and a bed in my house. I am equally free to tell you that I have no room for you in my house. It’s as simple as that.

I went over to Renegade Tribune last night and was shocked and appalled to find this headline: “On Feminism and Misogyny: An Open Letter to John Kaminski“, by Lasha Darkmoon.
Is she crazy??
Not only did she NOT carefully watch the video [false statement #1], she accuses you of not only hating women [false statement #2] but being on the same level as serial killer Bundy [false statement #3] I am utterly disgusted that Hunt would trounce you [sic] from the Tribune.
I was the FIRST of our “gang” to find this video and posted it FIRST here on Feb 18.
I understand the point he makes and the historical complexity he presents. I am on your list and posted your Third Rail [article] here, along with the video you attached. I also added links to a couple of the gentlemen you mentioned. I thought you [sic] article was one of the best you’ve done so far and a much needed wake up call.
[As for] LD — I find her so nasty I can’t even type out her name — shows zero class for posting this publicly instead of a personal email to you. Her and Hunt’s “I can expose the jews better then you” self righteous bullshit attitude smacks of cronyism and backstabbing. They have certainly trashed one of the finest journalists out there.
I just wanted to let you know I am on your side and will continue to post your work as I see fit. I don’t know what you are going to do about this, if anything, but RT [Renegade Tribune] certainly won’t publish any rebuttal you may care to make. If so, I will gladly post it on my sites.
I do not care for infighting and bashing but this is too big to ignore.
I do not personally care for women myself, even though I am one. 97% of my friends and correspondents are men. LD is paramount of [sic] the reasons why.
Modern females cannot take the slightest criticism of their behavior yet wonder why most cannot form lasting and loving relationships with men. She blames the jews in her attack but cannot see that she is still sadly brainwashed herself.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go scratch the cow’s eyes out. It will be an improvement, no doubt.
JOHN KAMINSKI TO LASHA DARKMOON:
“This [the above rant from Ms McCloud] is what my audience thinks of what you and Kyle have done. Which is why I want nothing more to do with either of you.”
LASHA DARKMOON’S FINAL EMAIL RESPONSE:
Thank you, John. We accept your decision to have nothing more to do with us. It is a wise decision and we will do our best to endure your wrath with resignation — and the wrath of the talented and fearsome Ms McCloud. Perhaps it would be a useful exercise if you were to ponder the following points as you make your angry exit. All are recent comments made on our website:

Thanks for your open letter. You have expressed your position quite well and timely. Some people visiting Darkmoon could easily come to the wrong conclusions concerning Darkmoon based on the Kaminski article and the rather over abundant negative commentary to some of the recent articles pertinent to women.

Renegade Tribune is owned and edited by Kyle Hunt. He’s the boss. And he, and he alone, decides who he wants to publish on his website.
If one of his writers starts giving him problems and behaves like a primadonna by refusing to accept editorial cuts and changes which the editor thinks necessary, then the writer has to go. No blog owner is under obligation to publish a writer who takes up an adversarial position and thinks he has a right to permanent tenure.
Writers need to know that they don’t call the shots. They need to toe the line and not get too big for their boots.

You have to love these people who complain when every word that they utter is not published verbatim on whatever blog they submit their comments or “articles” to. You should tell these cry-babies that they are free to go and set up their own blog. They are NOT denied their “freedom of speech”, since they can always go and set up their very own soapbox! But no, they do not want to do that work themselves. Far better of course, to tell you that you “MUST” publish what they say or it violates their “right”… yada,yada yada.

@ John Kaminski: “The fact that I am not allowed to say this on either Renegade Tribune or Darkmoon is not only a fascistic prohibition of my freedom of speech, but will result in my stories no longer appearing on either venue.”
Stop whining, you pompous primadonna! Anyone would think you OWNED the two websites which have given you hospitality for so long!
As for the Darkmoon site behaving in a “fascistic” manner and prohibiting your “freedom of speech”, I’ve never heard such UTTER CRAP in my life!
You are guilty of an outright lie.
Your article “The Third Rail” was published here WITHOUT CENSORSHIP! Your video was NOT banned. Nor has your freedom to whine and quetch here in the Comments column been taken away from you!
Finally, you have had more articles published on this website than ALL the other writers here put together — including Lasha Darkmoon! And yet you dare to complain about “censorship”?!!!
Tell us, sir, assuming you have any f***ing brains left, HOW HAS THIS SITE CENSORED YOU AND INTERFERED WITH YOUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH?
February 28, 2016 at 3:25 pm
@ Dr Parker
Please watch your language. Remember you have already been banned once. I’ve allowed this comment to pass only because it makes a valid point about censorship. We haven’t censored a single post/article/comment Kaminski has sent us. Not once. It surprises me that Kaminski should make such a false allegation.

@ John Kaminski
I’d like to remind you that we have bent over backwards to appease you. In spite of this, you accuse us falsely of “censoring” your work and taking away your “freedom of speech.” Never once have we done this.
In addition, we have made a unique exception in your case by reading and accepting your unsolicited articles, week after week. This is in breach of our own website policy where we have stated clearly that we do not have time to read and publish unsolicited material of any kind.
See para #2 here:
It is sad to think that, instead of thanking us for the special privileges we have granted you, we have received nothing in return from you except attacks on our integrity and false accusations of censorship.

LD concludes her email: I don’t think I need to add anything further to that, John. All those comments speak for themselves. You had no right to argue the toss with Kyle Hunt and issue him with dictatorial ultimatums. You may regard yourself as a great writer, the Indispensable Kaminski, but there is such a thing as getting above yourself.
Kyle Hunt’s brief comment on Renegade Tribune is something you need to think about carefully:
“Kaminsky said either to publish the article or the relationship would be ended. I don’t like ultimatums like that.”
That says it all, John. Kyle is telling you that you need to know your limitations. That you are in no position to issue autocratic ultimatums to the people who are doing you the favor of publishing you.
“Publish me — or else!” is not a wise slogan.
Sincere best wishes,
