”all slavs are swarthy with black eyes and black hair you are most definitely more nordic than hitler”
“Opa rolled Der panzers over people like this?”
also tbh i’ve never seen a slav with “black eyes,” if by that the weird guy reblogging horilky's photo meant really really dark brown eyes (so like, mine, where you can't see the pupils without extra light) since i don't think any europeans even have that genetically? i don't think i've even seen mixed people with “black” eyes. SWARTHY.

While identity is normally what allows for exchange and dialogue, in that case it only allows for exclusion. The natural preference is transformed into exclusivism, real differences are transposed into absolute divides, into infranchisable frontiers. Thus occurs the rupture with traditional cosmic or pagan thought, creating irreparable fractures in a universe which can no longer be perceived as unitary or organic, and where everything is interconnected and holds together. The identitarian revendication becomes a pretext to legitimize ignorance, exclusion or oppression. It allows, in an obsidional perspective, to instrumentalize the fear of others’ differences. Essentialism obeys the logic of the “positive ghetto,” the ghetto where one isolates oneself in order not to have to know others — the only appropriate norms are those of the tribe, as Péguy mockingly affirmed. This is called an “identitarian withdrawal.”
In this perspective, the distinction between “us” and “the others,” which lies in the foundation of all collective identity, is initially posited in terms of inequality or hostility. Identities are set in an atemporal ideal prototype, barring all exchange instead of promoting it. Difference is absolutized in such a way that dialogue between those who are different is devalorized or presumed impossible. The races and the people are treated as distinct quasi-species, which have nothing in common. To defend identity means to necessarily ignore or despise others: a European, for example, would betray his identity by liking Arab poetry, Japanese theater or African music! That means to deify oneself, to attribute to oneself all the merits, to claim to always be right, to pretend not to owe anything to anyone, to position oneself above all others in a worldview (“us vs. the others”) which could only be extremely competitive (classic liberalism) or conflictual (social Darwinism).
This idea is expressed in the perspective of zero gain: what one pos- sesses can only be possessed at the expense of others. Then, we will be us even more, if the others will be less themselves. Our identity is threatened by the identity of the others. It could only affirm itself by eradicating oth- ers’ identity. Overvalorization on the one hand, devalorization on the other: “between us” becomes the place of the norm and of good, while the external world becomes the place of threat and of evil. Such vision results in the elimination of the third: “Whoever is not with us is against us.”
What Edouard Glissant called the “sacred intolerance of the roots” leads paradoxically to the subjugation of difference to the cult of same- ness. Faced with the “globalizing” homogenization, one could only oppose the desire for homogeneity to a lesser degree, just like the independent and separatist movements only criticized the Jacobin state in order to defend the right to establish a micro-state, which would still be the same. The narcissism of the group members is reinforced by the integration of ideals, attributed to the entity in which they recognize themselves. This narcissistic satisfaction allows everyone, including the most mediocre members, to identify themselves with the highest realizations (real or idealized) of their community. This is what Georges Devereux calls “supporting identity.”"
