Drink Leninade! You Have Nothing to Lose but Your Lives!

2,047 words

So I had an extremely curious moment recently when an acquaintance of mine showed me a bottle of soda she had found. It’s called Leninade, or, in Russian, ЛЕНИНАД, and features an image of our dear friend Vladimir Ilich chugging down a bottle of this cool, refreshing drink. Clearly a kitsch product relying on fuzzy Cold War memories to sell units, the concept of this soda is as tasteless as they come (as for the soda itself, keep reading). Read more …

On the Pardon of Jack Johnson

2,375 words

Last month President Trump pardoned Jack Johnson, the first Negro heavyweight boxing champion, for his 1912 violation of the Mann Act. This gesture garnered little attention outside of boxing circles, largely because Johnson and his 106-year-old crime now resides mostly among the cobwebs of public memory. Jack Johnson these days is a white pop singer and former surfer from Hawaii. Read more …

The Auction Block

I have always found the best comedy of Key and Peele to be more interesting than funny. They make me think more than they make me laugh, which, I am sure, is an odd compliment for a comedian. Read more …

Batman as Comedy

1,569 words

Other than with the campy television program from the 1960s, you’re probably not going to equate Batman very often with comedy.

Of course, there is ample room for dark humor in Batman stories. The Killing Joke by Alan Moore is great example. But this is not the same thing as comedy, in which the universe itself is funny. Read more …

On Racial Ad Hominems

On the Doxxing of Ricky Vaughn

1,656 words

As most of us know by now, Paul Nehlen, the Wisconsin engineer who will be challenging Speaker Paul Ryan for his seat in the House of Representatives this summer, doxxed Alt Right blogger and shitposter Ricky Vaughn. As the writer at Counter-Currents who has written most about Nehlen—four articles, all positive—I feel the need to address this issue.  Read more …

The Noble Savage & the Downfall of Western Man:
A Review of The Mosquito Coast

2,454 words

Paul Theroux
The Mosquito Coast
Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1981

I always find it interesting when different people make similar observations based on the same data, yet come to completely different conclusions. Allie Fox, the main character in Paul Theroux’s novel The Mosquito Coast, seems at first to have much in common with many on today’s Dissident Right. He’s disgusted with the ubiquitous commercialization of modern society. Read more …

A Low IQ Individual

Maxine Waters

1,991 words

I never was the biggest fan of Richard Pryor. He was too blue, too prurient, and caricatured himself far too often for my taste. His lecherous take on white women and race-mixing also has no place in a red-pilled world. However, he had talent and he understood black people. Read more …

Skin in the Game:
On the Doxxing of Pamela Geller

1,466 words

On February 28, 2018, Taylor Lorenz of The Daily Beast revealed the identity of Pamela Geller’s children. And this is troubling for all of us. It certainly was troubling for Milo Yiannopoulos, who speaks about it quite forcefully here.

As many of us know, Pamela Geller is the anti-jihad activist who recently wrote a book entitled Fatwa: Hunted in America and who famously organized the “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, Texas back in 2015. Read more …

Death Wish
Directed by Michael Winner
Screenplay by Wendell Mayes
Starring Charles Bronson, Hope Lange, Stuart Margolin
1974

By the early 1970s, Americans had begun to notice a change in their big cities. After the Civil Rights movement and the 1965 Immigration Act, the multiracial rot – the inevitable by-product of the Left’s ascendancy in the West – began to set in. Read more …

The Nerve to Conserve:
Conservatism & the Right in the Age of Identity Politics

The Godfather of “respectable” conservatism, William F. Buckley, Jr.

1,633 words

Many on the Dissident Right these days like to deride conservatives. Conservatives are seen as the boobs who have been at least nominally in charge of the Republican Party since the end of the Cold War. We all know the names: Newt Gingrich, George W. Bush, John McCain, John Boehner, Mitt Romney, Mitch O’Connell, Paul Ryan, and many others.

Behind them all, pulling their ideological strings, was the Godfather of modern conservatism William F. Buckley and Jewish neocon writers such as William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer. Read more …

White As Folk

Senator Brian Schatz

1,910 words

I was both annoyed and alarmed when I saw this brief Steve Sailer piece at the Unz Review. Basically Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii triggered himself when Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave a speech at a recent sheriff’s convention. In the speech, Sessions said the following:

Since our founding, the independently elected sheriff has been the people’s protector, who keeps law enforcement close to and accountable to people through the elected process. The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement.

Quinn vs. Cole, Round 2

David Cole

1,936 words

Round 1 here.

The final point I would like to make regarding David Cole’s take on Paul Nehlen, who is challenging Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for his Congressional seat this summer, is that the opposing sides of this issue operate from completely differently playbooks, which has caused, to quote the Man in Cool Hand Luke, “a failure to communicate.” Read more …

Quinn vs. Cole, Round 1

1,758 words

So David Cole over at Taki’s Magazine finally decided to take a swipe at Paul Nehlen, the ‘Alt-Right candidate’ who is challenging Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for his Congressional seat this summer. Nehlen, as many of us know, is a self-identifying white man who stands perhaps a little to the right of President Donald Trump as a proponent of what he calls ‘economic nationalism.’ He is a border hawk; Read more …

On Rousseau’s Discourse on Inequality

3,313 words

In order to embrace the Right, whites must first overcome their shame and embarrassment when contemplating race. Our most difficult and dangerous hurdle, I believe, but also our most important one. Much of this involves resisting the temptation to impute a typical white temperament onto non-whites, especially primitive non-whites. Read more …

Interview with Spencer J. Quinn on White Like You

1,867 words

What inspired you to write White Like You?

Failure, basically. As a writer prior to my time at Counter-Currents, I had met with consistent failure. In the 1990s and 2000s I had written several novels, all of which face-planted when I attempted to find a publisher. It was very discouraging. Read more …

The Truth About Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King as a saint.

2,202 words

In November of 2017, President Trump instructed the National Archives to release hundreds of previously-sealed documents which pertained to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Included among these documents were two FBI files which, curiously enough, have little to do with the Kennedy assassination but could have great bearing on the current struggles of the Dissident Right.

Paul Nehlen: /ourguy/

Paul Nehlen of Wisconsin, who will be challenging Paul Ryan in the House of Representatives for the second time this August, reminds me of a line from the great baseball movie Moneyball. After revolutionizing the way baseball is played, yet still falling short in the playoffs, Oakland Athletics General Manager Billy Beane is told by the owner of the Boston Red Sox that “the first guy through the wall always gets bloody.” Read more …

Déjà Jew:
Jared Taylor & the “Alt Right Purge” on Twitter

2,479 words

On December 18th, Twitter deleted the accounts of Jared Taylor and American Renaissance and other groups considered to be on the ‘Alt Right.’ I don’t know why, but this affected me far worse than the mass deplatforming which took place after the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally this past summer. At least after Charlottesville, there was an ostensible reason for the mainstream’s reaction. Read more …

This is Why We Have Anti-Semitism

1,709 words

John Podhoretz

As I was scrolling through Gab the other day, I witnessed a remarkable little dig at the Jews. A well-known Dissident Right personality named John Rivers shared a tweet by Commentary Magazine editor John Podhorertz’s and commented, “look at this fucking Jew.”

Before I even had a chance to read J-Pod’s tweet, my normie instincts kicked in, and I thought to myself, “My, that was pretty nasty, wasn’t it?” Like many of us, I was neither born with the red pill, nor did I have it thrust upon me. Instead, I achieved it. With the blacks, Hispanics, and Muslims, it took only a few years after paying my own taxes for the first time. But for the Jewish Question, alas, it took decades.
