Traditionalist/New Right “Nietzsche Club” Banned at London University

Nietzschesketch233 words

On March 11, 2014 the Student Union of the University College of London University banned a student organization, the Nietzsche Club, formerly Tradition UCL, for “endangering the student body” by promoting “racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Marxist, and anti-worker” ideas. Obviously, the Student Union is controlled by Marxists who wish to suppress contrary ideas. Here is a screen shot of the Student Union resolution:

NietzscheClub

The Nietzsche Club put up posters denouncing political correctness and the “false god” of equality. The club also advertised readings from Julius Evola, Alain de Benoist, and Martin Heidegger as well as Friedrich Nietzsche, clearly locating its sympathies with Traditionalism and the European New Right.

Apparently the trustees of the university suspended the ban to seek legal advice, leaving the Nietzsche Club in limbo.

I would like the leaders of the Nietzsche club to contact me at [email protected]. At the very least, I would like to make your acquaintance, offer some moral support, and send you some free books. If possible, I would like to do a print or audio interview as well. I will also be speaking in London at the end of September, which might be an occasion to meet.

Frankly, it is my hope that the attempt to ban the Nietzsche Club at London University will cause similar clubs to pop up all over the world. Counter-Currents will do whatever we can to encourage such projects.

    Equality is myth created to protect the weak.

    What is political correctness in politics? It is the outlawing of opposing political views, ie, dictatorship.,

    Book clubs and discussion groups based around certain ideas and writers is a great way for pro-white students to find each other and organize. This approach avoids some of the pitfalls that “White Student Unions” have faced (though I’m a fan of those as well).

    The great thing about organizing around books, thinkers, and intellectual discussion of certain ideas is that when the leftists and the administration decide to try to shut you down, it exposes them as anti-free speech, anti-intellectual, and squarely against academic tradition itself. Any thinking bystander will side with those being censored.

    I echo Marcus’ sentiments. The left has become the collective “useful idiots” for a corrupt plutocracy. For any college student today who wants to acquaint him or herself with edgy, “transgressive” philosophy, try the reading list of the names shown on the poster in the article.

    Wanna stick it to ‘The Man?” The Establishment today are the cultural Marxist commissars and their multicult fellow travelers.

    The truth is the club was banned because nobody knows how to pronounce his name properly, nevermind spell it

    These airhead Marxist kids should read Kerry Bolton’s works, especially those dealing with the international Jewish financial roots of Bolshevism.
