The Alt Right & Conservatism

elephantbones2,142 words

Conservatism, said Russell Kirk, is “neither a religion nor an ideology.” Today, its most stalwart defenders believe it is both. “True conservatism,” we are told, is under attack from the Alt Right, a shadowy group which encompasses everyone from the CEO of Donald Trump’s campaign to anonymous Twitter accounts who worship a cartoon frog. Because they do not agree with conservative “principles,” the so-called “true conservatives” are already fantasizing about another Beltway Right “purge” of the unbelievers.  Read more …

I grew up in an incredibly small, overwhelmingly Southern Baptist town. The kind of place where almost everyone had some idea of when any given person in town had or hadn’t walked up in the main church (stationed straight across from the main grocery store) during the altar call to ask the Holy Spirit to come into their hearts, and “conservatism” meant being among the people keeping track more than anything else.

The Fall of Hillary Clinton

On 9/11/2016, Hillary Clinton collapsed at free-fall speed into her own footprint, after making an early exit from a 9/11 commemoration in New York City. At first the Clinton campaign said she was overcome by the heat. But I am sure that at least 88 scientists can be found to sign a statement that temperatures in the 70s, a gentle breeze, and low humidity are not sufficient to cause knees to buckle.

The term “negritude” (roughly self-aware blackness) came into common currency in the 1930s and 1940s among a loose alliance of francophone Black poets and intellectuals, most them from France’s colonial empire. It was part of their campaign to destigmatize blackness and to assert the special qualities of their African heritage. The most important figure in this influential movement for négritude was likely Leopold Senghor, a poet and professor of African languages who later became the first president of Senegal.

Take the Trumpwear Challenge

TrumpHat1,361 words

I recently returned from visiting friends in Asheville, North Carolina. On my journey home to the third world metropolis that is New York City, I decided to wear my “Trump 2016” tee shirt. The result was fascinating — and leads me to issue a challenge to all my readers.

As soon as my friends dropped me off in front of the tiny Asheville airport Read more …

What Would an Alt-Right Administration Look Like?

3,021 words

capricckOne of the many paths to power for alt-right ideas would be to control substantial elements of the federal government. This scenario has major limitations given the Constitution and the inertia that exists in the American system due to the nebulous divisions of sovereignty it imposes. Read more …

The Myth of First-Wave Feminism

1,550 words

SuffragePosterWas it oppressive to deny women the vote? Let me be clear up front: the subject of this essay is not whether women should have the right to vote now. My argument is one that hypothetically should be capable of convincing a pure egalitarian who believes that “human nature” at its core is a kind of interchangeable, uniform “stuff,” beneath its outward expressions, which are constrained by external circumstances. I can change the mind of someone who believes that men and women are not even psychologically different and who is perfectly happy with the equality that we have managed to achieve today.  Read more …

Safety, Prosperity, & Peace:
Trump’s Path to the White House

596 words

At the 2008 American Renaissance conference, Michael Walker made a very simple point about democratic politics that has stuck with me. Most people are not interested in ideology and moral principles. Instead, he said, quoting British socialist politician Tony Benn, they are interested in “security, peace, and prosperity.”  Read more …

Desired Storms:
Guillaume Faye’s The Colonisation of Europe

2,690 words

coe-wmarginsGuillaume Faye
The Colonisation of Europe
London: Arktos, 2015

It is likely that many centuries hence, when the historic events which will have taken place in Europe in the first decades of this century are discussed and referenced, famous books will be associated with them. Just as today we cannot discuss the fall of Rome without invoking Gibbon, it is likely that other books will gain a similar stature and relevance in connection to our own civilizational upheaval. Guillaume Faye’s book The Colonization of Europe deserves such an honor. Read more …

Diversity & the Rape of Justice

racists4rapists1,785 words

Leftists will accuse white men of fueling “rape culture” for sitting with their legs spread too far apart. But they’ve been excusing non-whites for committing actual acts of rape since well before the mass sexual assaults in Germany in 2016. The Cologne attacks on New Years’ Eve didn’t represent the beginning of these trends—they just exposed to the wider public more clearly something that some of us have already been observing for a long time.  Read more …

The Left is Afraid

HRCRecently I returned from the most liberal place on earth. For security reasons, I cannot divulge its name or location.

Francis Bacon:
The Dark Theology of Meat

2,046 words

Francis Bacon, 1909–1992

Francis Bacon, 1909–1992

Francis Bacon was an extraordinary and extreme artist and one of the greatest painters of the twentieth century. He was also a Right-wing elitist and individualist who approached the problem of creating art in the twentieth century with an honesty and intensity that have not really been matched. Generally speaking, it is probably true to say that most of the Right dismiss Bacon along with other contemporary artists mainly because of his unique treatment of the human form. But in my view his art enunciates a violent assault on the complacency of conventional thinking and perception that should be seen as deeply consonant with the project of the Alt Right.

Gregory Hood’s Waking Up from the American Dream

Gregory Hood
Waking Up from the American Dream
San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2016

A friend of mine and fellow traveler of ours can trace his ancestry in America all the way back to the colonial period. His ancestors’ bones are interred in a old neighborhood in one of our oldest cities. Undoubtedly, they were laid to rest by a community that was very much like themselves, a European one.

The Relevance of the Old Right

Giacomo Balla, Balbo and the Italian Transatlantic Flyers (Celestial Metallic Airplane), 1931

Giacomo Balla, Balbo and the Italian Transatlantic Flyers (Celestial Metallic Airplane), 1931

1,537 words

What is the relevance of what I call the Old Right — German National Socialism, Italian Fascism, and related interwar national-populist movements — to White Nationalism today? The question would not even arise, of course, if there were no connection at all. Many White Nationalist ideas are either direct descendants of Old Right ideologies, or they are their cousins, meaning that they share common ancestors, that they are branches of the same ideological tree.

This is what I take from the Old Right: Read more …

A Study in Anti–White Media Lies:
Are Right–Wing Extremists More Likely to Kill you Than Muslim Terrorists?

1,756 words

9-11The problem goes deeper than leftist rags like ThinkProgress. It goes even deeper than Salon. If you want to see how deeply anti-white and anti-conservative attitudes have grown into the mainstream media today, you must look no further than Newsweek and the New York Times.

In these articles, we read that:

1. “You Are More Than 7 Times As Likely To Be Killed By A Right-Wing Extremist Than By Muslim Terrorists” Read more …

The Angry Birds Movie

angry-birds2,217 words

When the West was great, our children were raised with stories and sagas, folk tales and common prayer. Today, they are raised by corporate franchises, worship SJW superheroes, and experience reality through a screen. We must resist and turn to older, better ways. But in The Current Year, all too often the best many parents can do is find some movie that’s not completely pozzed they can take their children to. Read more …
