The Counter-Currents Newsletter, May 2020

1,552 words

Dear Friends of Counter-Currents,

Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance Conferences are wonderful opportunities for education and networking. I always look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones at AmRen. The 2020 American Renaissance Conference was supposed to have happened this past weekend. I planned to be there and timed the launch of my new book White Identity Politics to coincide with it. Two weeks later, I was planning to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Counter-Currents going online with a big party in New York City. Read more …

In Defense of Karens

1,193 words / 7:34

Audio version: To listen in a player, click here. To download the mp3, right-click here and choose “save link as” or “save target as.”

The internet can’t stop hating on Karens. These middle-aged white women continue to cause problems for America and are hated by both the Left and the Right. The Left claims they’re white women who weaponize their privilege to oppress minorities. The Right ignores the racial angle and says they’re just annoying tattle-tales. Read more …

Joy Division in Retrospect

On this day in 1977, a band from Salford, England called Warsaw took to the stage for the very first time in their career. They were supporting the Buzzcocks at the Electric Circus concert in Manchester.

“Warsaw” was the name chosen by a group of young men, namely Ian Curtis, Bernard Sumner, Terry Mason, and Peter Hook, Read more …

The Counter-Currents 2020 Fundraiser:
No Fire Can Burn Without Setting a Spark

1,568 words

There is a war on, and we are losing.

As I drive through my beloved rural Dixieland country, I see home after home flying the flag of President Donald Trump. I see the devotion with which white Christian conservatives, the rank-and-file of the Republican Party, those whom we must win to our cause, revere President Trump. Read more …

Remembering Oswald Spengler
(May 29, 1880–May 8, 1936)

580 words

Oswald Spengler was born on this day in 1880. For his contributions to the philosophy of history and culture, Spengler is one of the most important philosophical influences on the North American New Right, largely by way of his disciple Francis Parker Yockey. Spengler is often wrong, but even when he errs, he does so magnificently.

Constantinople (Not Istanbul)

2,052 words

One fascinating conundrum I have been dealing with for years juxtaposes Istanbul/Constantinople the city with “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” the song. I cannot plumb the depths of this since, on one hand, the fall of Constantinople on May 29th, 1453 (today is the 567th anniversary) was a sheer catastrophe for the West — be it for Christendom or for the white race, however you want to look at it.

That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore

1,436 words

This morning I woke up to the news of another casualty in the culture war. A dusty, 20-year-old skit of late-night comedian and SNL alum Jimmy Fallon donning brown makeup and a wig to mimic African racial features, in a Chris Rock impersonation, went viral. And just like clockwork, Fallon is on Twitter performing the self-flagellation ritual that is demanded of him by the anti-racism SanhedrinRead more …

Alain de Benoist on France’s Response to the Coronavirus

Alain de Benoist

888 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Now that things seem to be on the mend, can we say that the government, even if manifestly taken aback, has done too much, too little, or just enough in the face of the epidemic?

There is no other word for it: the reaction of the authorities to Covid-19 has been truly calamitous. Five months after the start of the epidemic, we still have not reached the screening capacity that we should have had when the first deaths appeared. Read more …

Remembering Louis-Ferdinand Céline
(May 27, 1894–July 1, 1961)

215 words

Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature. And, like Ezra Pound and so many other great writers of the last century, he was an open and unapologetic racial nationalist. For more on Céline, see the following works on this website: Read more …

In Search of Céline

1,704 words

Claude Sarraute: “And what, in your opinion, is the tragic element of our epoch?”

Céline: “Stalingrad. There’s the catharsis for you. The fall of Stalingrad was the end of Europe. There’s a cataclysm. The epicenter was Stalingrad. After that you can say white civilization was finished, really washed up.” Read more …

So Far Beyond Karen

1,434 words

The “Karen” meme has quickly spread like wildfire across Twitter. It’s a more easily referenced offshoot of the previously unnamed “I would like to speak to the manager” joke that was more broadly associated with tannie haircuts and Ray-Bans than anything else. Now that there’s a name for it, it’s easier to crack a joke, especially at the expense of those who seem to embody the trope’s worst attributes. Read more …

Tacoma: Angelico Press, 2013

Behold! We the Netizens in the days of yore, after Al Gore hath wrought the Internet, ventured forth with the might of our 56K modems.

The Hippocratic Oath Today

2,157 words

Dr. Casey practices medicine in the United States. She was a liberal egalitarian before becoming a white advocate.

The Hippocratic Oath was a remarkable work for its time, but it has since been bastardized and distorted beyond recognition by the anti-whites. All mention of duty, honor, holiness, and the Gods has been replaced with feminist-inspired platitudes such as “warmth, sympathy, and understanding Read more …

The Coronavirus Didn’t End Globalism, it Ended the American Era

USS Saratoga, 1843

1,869 words

If there is one crisis that shows national populism and race realism were needed, this should have been it.

The coronavirus emerged from strange, disgusting foreign folkways. (Even Bill Maher is with me on wet markets.) Economic globalization allowed the virus’s spread. Read more …

The Faith of Heretics

Anthony van Dyck, Saint Ambrose Barring Theodosius from Milan Cathedral, ca. 1620.

1,538 words

Many people today would describe themselves as being more spiritual than religious. Despite being baptized in two Christian churches, I consider myself a spiritual person of folkish, ancestral faith. Regardless of religion, ethnic nationalists and white advocates stand in opposition to the all-encompassing theocracy of anti-white liberalism. Due to our beliefs, we are modern-day heretics. From classical antiquity to the Modern era, heretics and dissidents have been persecuted in a similar pattern. Nevertheless, I believe that faith can help us overcome the persecution that white people face in Western societies.  Read more …

Scarface

2,180 words

White Nationalists spend a lot of time analyzing the themes in movies and the impact they have on our people. However, we often ignore what lessons non-whites take. Consider the one movie that has had a greater impact on hip-hop culture (which is to say, the dominant culture of this country’s youth and underclass) than any other — Brian De Palma’s 1983 Scarface.

Remembering Richard Wagner
(May 22, 1813–February 13, 1883)

472 words

Richard Wagner was born 206 years ago today in Leipzig in the Kingdom of Saxony. He died on February 13, 1883 in Venice. As an artist, intellectual, author, and cultural force, Wagner has left an immense metapolitical legacy, which is being evaluated and appropriated in the North American New Right. I wish to draw your attention to the following writings which have been published at Counter-Currents. Read more …

A Second Look at the Third Amendment

A French dragoon harassing a Huguenot.

1,585 words

The Third Amendment is, unsurprisingly, the least litigated out of all Constitutional amendments. Its effect on Constitutional law is almost nonexistent. While everyone may be glad that “no soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law, it probably would not have been an issue Read more …

Weaponizing Money

1,482 words

The first question posed to Greg Johnson and Fróði Midjord during the recent Counter-Currents livestream was, “If you could re-live your twenties, what would you do differently?” Greg’s answer was direct, clear, and quite pertinent to those of us considering an academic career — in the humanities, at least. Short answer: Don’t. Good advice. Read more …

Chapter 6, “Puritanism: The Rise of Egalitarian Individualism and Moralistic Utopianism,” of Kevin MacDonald’s Individualism and the Western Liberal Tradition, claims that Puritanism and the intellectual movements descending from this religion were the “most important” forces shaping the culture of the United States “from the eighteenth century down to the mid-twentieth century.” Read more …
