Swamp & Snake:
Media Pathology & the Establishment’s Inquisition

The Dutch Party for Freedom candidate Géza Hegedüs

3,027 words

American media strategies: the Knavs case

From the very outset, President Trump’s brave attempt at draining the bureaucratic-kleptocratic “Washington swamp” of establishment politics brought out the poisonous snakes of the American mainstream media. Headed by the spin doctors and “fake news” masters of CNN, President Trump has come under sustained attack: vicious attempts at character assassination, with backbiting scandal-mongering and deep-state political intrigue being amplified coast-to-coast, along with round-the-clock journalistic mockery and taunting of the most infantile and malicious kind.

The Proud Boys’ Lesson

The brawl between the Proud Boys and the Antifa in New York on October 12.

1,275 words

The Proud Boys could only have arisen in the Trump era. A multi-racial fraternity dedicated to “Western chauvinism” and brawling with the Antifa is not something the Tea Party could have produced.

There’s always been an element of the ridiculous in the Proud Boys. Read more …

Cioran on Civilization & Decadence

Sébastien Bourdon, The Sacrifice of Iphigenia

833 words

Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: The following extracts are drawn from Emil Cioran, De la France (Paris: L’Herne, 2015). The original was written in Romanian in 1941.

Countries – unfortunately – exist. Each one crystallizes a sum of errors called values, which it cultivates and combines, and which it circulates and gives currency towards. Their totality constitutes the individuality of each country and its implicit pride – but also its tyranny, because it weighs unconsciously on the individual. Read more …

Alexander Sokurov’s Francofonia

3,349 words

Alexander Sokurov has been hailed by his peers as the “living Tarkovsky.” The 67 years young filmmaker has eighteen feature films to his credit and almost twice as many documentaries. A representative of the “slow and low” school of filmmakers, his work is a rebellion against the fast-paced, quick-cut, shoot em’ up action films of America’s Ritalin Generation. Time is the most influential element in a Sokurov film and shapes its atmosphere. Read more …

The Day of the Triffids as a White Survival Parable

3,795 words

The Day of the Triffids is a 1951 novel by the English science fiction writer John Wyndham. Prior to serving in the Second World War, Wyndham wrote short stories for pulp magazines, and The Day of the Triffids was his first book, published when he was 48. It launched his short but illustrious career as a science-fiction horror writer whose premises were simple enough that they could be easily grasped, yet were boldly original. Read more …

This is a strange, vile little book as only Emil Cioran knew how to produce. It was only recently published, in both the original Romanian and in French translation,[1] having been written in 1941 and left to languish for decades in some cardboard box in the Cioran archives. Read more …

The Transcendental Mind of Europeans Stands Above the Embedded Mind of Asians

7,002 words

Europeans were the first – and are still the only – race to become conscious of their consciousness, to identify the faculty of thinking as the point from which all knowledge must proceed in separation from all extra-intellectual sources and inclinations, be they conventions of the time, religious mandates, or emotional inclinations.

Lucifer

Mihai Eminescu

2,285 words

Nineteenth-century Romanian poet and editorialist Mihai Eminescu (1850-1889) studied in Bismarck’s Prussia, where he immersed himself in Schopenhauer and studied under Eugen Dühring. His essays attack liberalism, usury, immigration, and the prospect of Jewish civil rights in Romania. The tone of his philosophically-driven poems, which are modeled after the golden age of German Romantic poetry, ranges from endearing to brutal. Adored in Romania, but without much of a reputation outside of his own country, he was killed by medical malpractice at the age of 39. Read more …

Ich Dien — I Serve

The tomb of Edward, The Black Prince of Wales

2,042 words

In an age of skyscrapers and digital highways, it is rather cathartic to pass through the seventeenth-century oak doors of the Christ Church Gate and walk into Canterbury Cathedral’s cobbled precincts. Looking up, I see blackbirds flocking overhead, feathers fluttering on the perpendicular tracery of the octagonal towers bearing the Tudor Court of Arms and the Welsh Dragon. My eyes are captivated by the motifs in memory of Arthur, Henry VII’s first-born and heir apparent, who died in Ludlow just short of his sixteenth birthday, fatefully allowing his younger brother to rule in his stead.

The “Hate Crime” against Jussie Smollett

Jussie Smollett

1,676 words

Downtown Chicago is full of Trump-loving, ski-masked racists. At least, that’s the assumption made by people who believe the incredulous hate crime tale of Jussie Smollett.

Smollett is a gay black man who stars in the popular black television series Empire. He is also a rapper. Smollett claims he was beaten in the early morning on January 29 in Chicago by two white men in ski masks who recognized him as “that faggot Empire nigger.” Read more …

Political Violence:
Mainly a Left-Wing Phenomenon

Ulrike Meinhof, one of the leaders of the German Red Army Faction, in prison.

2,786 words

Political violence is a phenomenon in all historical ages, but we have become somewhat unaccustomed to it in the West given that things were fairly quiet for several decades until the new threat of jihadi terrorism emerged. Europe has had more political violence than the US, and on a bigger scale, peaking in the 1970s and ‘80s, the most famous case in recent years bring Anders Breivik. Read more …

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn:
The Rise of a Prophet

3,769 words

It’s striking how cherry-picking can hone the pen of a propagandist and disguise malice behind a veneer of reason. Jewish writer Cathy Young provides excellent examples of this all throughout her December 2018 Quillette article, “Solzhenitsyn: The Fall of a Prophet.” Published shortly after Solzhenitsyn’s 100th birthday, the article’s point, essentially, is to tarnish the reputation of a great man in order to steer discourse away from aspects of his work which the current zeitgeist finds problematic.

“Hotter than Georgia asphalt”
David Lynch’s Wild at Heart

4,326 words

Wild at Heart is not David Lynch’s best movie, but it is my favorite. I would argue, for instance, that Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man, and The Straight Story are all better films. But for some reason they do not call me back year after year like Wild at Heart.

Wild at Heart was released in the summer of 1990, when Lynch was riding high on Twin Peaks mania. It won the Palme d’Or at the 1990 Cannes film festival, albeit over vocal protests. Read more …

Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King marching with Rabbi Abraham Heschel at a Vietnam War protest in Washington, DC in 1968.

3,287 words

There are few displays of ethnomasochism and xenophilia more perverse than that of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – a day in January when white and black alike are meant to remember this hero of the Civil Rights era and to reflect on how far we have come as a country. MLK Day is an odd holiday to me, since it is as if the Byzantines had set aside a day to celebrate the heroism of Mehmed II, or some other Ottoman Sultan. Perhaps this analogy gives Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) far too much credit. Read more …

Fukuyama on Civic Nationalism

3,801 words

In his new book Identity, Francis Fukuyama seeks to forestall the rise of white identity politics. Nevertheless, as I argue in “Fukuyama on Identity Politics,” Identity is a very useful book for White Nationalists because it concedes many of our most important premises. In “Fukuyama on Diversity,” I argue that Fukuyama admits that diversity is a problem and offers only very weak reasons to value it at all. Here I examine Fukuyama’s alternative to white identity politics, namely a conservative form of color-blind civic nationalism.  Read more …

Michael the Brave & the Tide of the Ottoman Wars

Michael the Brave, savior of Europe?

2,446 words

The history of Romania as a concrete country is generally assumed to have started with the Romanian, or Danubian, principalities, similarly to how the history of Russia as a concrete country starts with Muscovy. Both of these histories are of late medieval origin, having come into being in the wake of the Mongol invasions of Europe. In both comparable cases, however, the concrete starting point is not the same as the ethnologically related spiritual precursor from which the original states derived their patronage. In the case of Russia, the spiritual precursor was the Kievan Rus’, which was situated in present-day Ukraine. Read more …
