“”Chateau Heartiste has written that game can save the West. Disbelievers scoff. But if this outpost of sanity had been around during Hitler’s flowering youth to enlighten him about the nature of the fairer sex, the West might very well have been saved.

Aside from content, Weidmann's writing style is notably wordy and obnoxious.
“”Lies and ego-salving bromides come as easily to them as eating another piece of pie.
|—James Weidmann on fat women|
“”Her mind is an alien world that requires deft navigation to reach your rendevous.
|—James Weidmann, experienced explorer of "alien worlds"|
Weidmann's specialty is anti-female bigotry couched in appeals to "evolution" and "nature". The blog has an entire category dedicated to "Science Validates Game", whose posts generally follow this format: Weidmann mentions a single scientific study, bolds a sentence or two "proving" that women are conniving bitches, and adds liquefied snobbery.
“”Women aren't a monolithic alien entity. I'd suggest replacing this overwrought list of commandments with this: 1. Treat us like human beings.
For some prime examples of evo-psych woo, we turn to one of Weidmann's most popular posts: "The Sixteen Commandments of Poon". Weidmann's advice seems for men seems to be:  Act like an asshole and  Never open yourself up to any woman. Top tips include:
2: Be a flirt, because jealousy arouses women:
Flirt with other women in front of her. Do not dissuade other women from flirting with you. Women will never admit this but jealousy excites them. The thought of you turning on another woman will arouse her sexually. No girl wants a man that no other woman wants. The partner who harnesses the gale storm of jealousy controls the direction of the relationship.
3 & 4: Respect women by denying their autonomy:
Despite whatever protestations to the contrary, women do not want to be "The One" or the center of a man's existence. They in fact want to subordinate themselves to a worthy man’s life purpose, to help him achieve that purpose with their feminine support, and to follow the path he lays out. You must respect a woman’s integrity and not lie to her that she is “your everything”. She is not your everything, and if she is, she will soon not be anymore.
If you allow a woman to make the rules she will resent you with a seething contempt even a rapist cannot inspire. The strongest woman and the most strident feminist wants to be led by, and to submit to, a more powerful man.
7: Tell lies and be inconsistent, because women love insecurity:
True to their inscrutable natures, women ask questions they don’t really want direct answers to. Woe be the man who plays it straight — his fate is the suffering of the beta. Evade, tease, obfuscate. She thrives when she has to imagine what you’re thinking about her, and withers when she knows exactly how you feel. A woman may want financial and family security, but she does not want passion security. In the same manner, when she has displeased you, punish swiftly, but when she has done you right, reward slowly. Reward her good behavior intermittently and unpredictably and she will never tire of working hard to please you.
12 & 16: Keep those plates spinning:
Never allow yourself to be a "kept man". A man with options is a man without need. It builds confidence and encourages boldness with women if there is another woman, a safety net, to catch you in case you slip and risk a breakup, divorce, or a lost prospect, leading to loneliness and a grinding dry spell.
Never be afraid to lose her. [....] You will walk away from her when she has violated your integrity, and you will let her walk when her heart is closed to you. She who can destroy you, controls you. Don’t give her that power over yourself. Love yourself before you love her.
Notably, Weidmann doesn't cite any sources or even make solid arguments for any of these points. He appears to assume that "this is just how women are" and work from there.
Weidmann justifies male attraction to female teens as good because it is natural:
It is a fact of life that young teenage girls who have developed secondary sexual characteristics are desired by men of all ages, even 90 year olds. And these exquisite nymphets, in turn, desire older men for their power. These desires are natural, and frightening to the keepers of the order. They provoke the envy of the left behind, and so are condemned.
- Women who get fat have destroyed themselves:
For girls who are gaining weight, the uglification of their looks can sometimes take months or even years to register in their consciousness, because the change is relatively slow and thus more easily psychologically accommodated by their hamsters which are loathe to contemplate the true nature of the horrors they have committed against themselves. But when you put the thin and fat pics side by side the comparison is so stark there is no running from the cruel truth: these girls have destroyed their sexiness.
Weidmann is also a White Nationalist. He says he opposes the movement, but only because it is "not sexist enough" for him — and worth nothing is that a particular hatred for white women would appear to be an integral part of the movement. Otherwise, his talking points are the same. He does not even try to hide his racism: He thinks "white civilization" is getting destroyed as it is "overrun by Uruk-Hai". The only solution to the terrible prospect of Whites becoming a minority is, according to Weidmann, to forcefully deport all minorities. However, this will not happen as, according to him, the "elites" have an "anti-white ideology" and plan to destroy the white race.
“”So if beta Hitler was able to rise to power, create a cult of personality, bring war upon Europe, and slaughter millions of people, what would Alpha Hitler have accomplished?
Coming to an anti-Semitic theater near you: Alpha Hitler. This time, he's got game.
A part of me feels not just pity, but even tender admiration, for young Hitler’s romantic idealism, so pure of thought and intention. This was a Hitler, however misguided, who denied a cynical world its tribute in parcels of his uncorrupted soul. How might things have turned out differently had a strong male presence — an alpha male mentor — shown him the way to fulfill his burning desire?
[P]erhaps, even more sinisterly, Hitler became the man he did when, as a young man in the grip of hot unrequited love, his Jewish princess “rejected” him for the charming alpha males Hitler despised. What followed from that irreparable wound to his heart was an act of id vengeance that would set fire to the world. Was WWI [sic] then, the revenge of a beta male scorned?
It's also decidedly pseudohistorical (and has been soundly mocked). Hitler had a long-time girlfriend. Perhaps more importantly, as noted above, he led a movement that took control of a country, oversaw brutal state crackdown on political dissidents, and intentionally killed millions more -- not characteristics often associated with "man who cannot get laid".
“”The legend lives on from the Left Coast on down
of the beta they called “Cuckold Freddie.”
The cuck, it is said, sits alone near the bed
when the thighs of his wife spread to darkies.
With a load of mandingo twenty inches more flaccid
than the Beta Male Cuckold at full chubby,
that goon man and true worked his bone black and blue
when his wife and her lover slapped uglies.

Weidmann's blog has no obvious ads or corporate sponsorship of his website, suggesting he's not in it for the money, but rather for the approval-seeking attention ("omega"-male characteristic) of the manosphere, despite his claims of being an alpha.
