Cutting to the Quick

1,655 words

I have always found that honest people, right or wrong, like to cut to the quick. If something requires an explanation, a sentence or two ought to do it. The answer must be direct, sensible, and, most importantly, interesting.

Here are a few examples:

Most boxing fans take it for granted that the black American heavyweight Joe Louis had been the top contender when he fought Jimmy Braddock for the title in 1937. Read more …

Remembering H. P. Lovecraft:
August 20, 1890–March 15, 1937

LovecraftPrize1crop893 words

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was born on August 20, 1890, in Providence, Rhode Island, and died there of cancer on March 15, 1937. An heir to Poe and Hawthorne, Lovecraft is one of the pioneers of modern science fiction, fantasy, and horror literature. Lovecraft is a literary favorite in New Rightist circles, for reasons that will become clear from a perusal of the following works on this website.  Read more …

At the Heart of Darkness

3,399 words

Editor’s Note:

It is a little-known — but entirely unsurprising — fact that Samuel Francis had a deep love and encyclopedic knowledge of H. P. Lovecraft. In honor of Lovecraft’s birthday, here is Francis’ review of S. T. Joshi’s H. P. Lovecraft: A Life and Lovecraft’s Miscellaneous Writings. — Greg Johnson

Unite the Right Did Nothing Wrong
(But There’s Still Room for Improvement)

1,532 words

Well the unity didn’t last long. Immediately after Unite the Right, those who did not participate started attacking the speakers and organizers. For instance, Katie McHugh and AntiDem have used Unite the Right as a pretext to attack Richard Spencer. Now the speakers and organizers are blaming and disavowing one another. Richard Spencer, Eli Mosley, and Baked Alaska, for example, have disavowed Jason Kessler over a tweet about Heather Heyer, who joined the violent mob that attacked Unite the Right and died as a result.  Read more …

Open Letter to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe

1,188 words

Dear Governor McAuliffe,

In the Soviet Union, they had essentially two kinds of prisoners in their vast gulag system: the 58s and everyone else. The 58s had been indicted under the provisions of Article 58 of the Soviet criminal code, which gave the state license to lock up virtually anyone for political reasons.  Read more …

Learning from Donald Trump

1,676 words

Having a Mencken-like disdain for America’s ruling class, I would like to put forward what I have entitled Quintilian’s Postulate 1: conservatives are stupid and lack courage; liberals are stupid and lack self-awareness. Donald Trump is a unique politician, I believe, because he possesses both courage and self-awareness.

The Long Night of the Kali Yuga

“I don’t want any more stories,” Bran snapped, his voice petulant. He had liked Old Nan and her stories once … They left her with him all day now, to watch over him and clean him and keep him from being lonely, but she just made it worse. “I hate your stupid stories.”

The Naturalization Act of 1790 was the American Founding Fathers’ first attempt at establishing a legal path towards citizenship for non-citizens. It stated that immigration to the United States, fledgling nation that it was, should be limited to “whites of good character.” Here is the breakdown according to Infogalactic:

Why White Nationalists Shouldn’t be Discouraged by the Charlottesville Attack

866 words

James Alex Fields, Jr.

A 20 year old named James Alex Fields, Jr. rammed his Dodge Challenger into a group of people during the Charlottesville March this past Saturday, August 12, 2017, killing one. The interesting thing is that if he had been a Muslim doing it for the sake of jihad, the media and academia would in response be promoting a narrative that we should not allow this attack to be used to malign Muslims across the nation because most Muslims, according to them, are law-abiding people of good will.

On the same day that the combined forces of the Left were doing violence to the rights of free speech and assembly of the Unite the Right marchers in Charlottesville, VA, their cultural Marxist brethren were at the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, NY doing aesthetic violence to the American premiere of Gaetano Donizetti’s opera The Siege of Calais (1836).

The Altamont of the Alt Right?

1,640 words

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”–John F. Kennedy

On December 6, 1969, the Altamont Speedway Free Festival was held in Northern California, featuring Santana, The Jefferson Airplane, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, and The Rolling Stones. It was supposed to be a West Coast version of Woodstock, which had been held four months before in upstate New York. But Altamont descended into violence and mayhem, with one murder and three accidental deaths, plus countless brawls and petty crimes. Read more …

Ruby Ridge, 25 Years On

Randy Weaver

2,328 words

August 22nd will be the 25th anniversary of what is popularly called “Ruby Ridge.” Most readers my age or older will remember Ruby Ridge well, but it is possible there are some younger individuals reading this without that same cognizance of the events.

The name refers to a mountaintop in Northern Idaho where — in 1992 — a man named Randy Weaver and his family ended up in a prolonged, armed standoff with the federal government that ended in the death of his wife and 14-year-old son.  Read more …

It is important for White Nationalists to visualize what victory would look like. There are really two answers to this question. The ultimate answer is our vision of Whitopia, the society we want to create. But before we build Whitopia, we need to achieve a victory over the present political system. Read more …

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk

628 words

Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s most emotionally powerful movie. It deals with the evacuation of 400,000 British, Canadian, and French troops trapped on the beach at Dunkirk after being defeated by the Germans in the Second World War.

Dunkirk is a strange work, especially for Christopher Nolan, who typically directs long films with complex plots, extensive character development, and lots of dialogue. Dunkirk, however, is only 106 minutes long. There is no single storyline. Read more …
