Blut & Boden: An Aryan Allegory

1,567 words

Ash Donaldson
Blut and Boden: A Fairy Tale for Children of European Descent
CreateSpace, 2018

Mythology has always been the tie that binds. Familiar stories from long ago featuring archetypal characters and illustrating universal themes, as well as those specific to a particular race, nation, or tribe, provide common reference points among extended kin. Read more …

An Olive Branch to the Left

1,533 words

Despite deeply appreciating the victory of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, I didn’t experience the schadenfreude I thought I would. The part of my mind which harbors hatred for my enemies and usually roils at the anti-white antics of the Left felt oddly calm and steady. Read more …

Triumph of the Nomads:
A Race-Realist View of the Australian Aborigines

2,621 words

Geoffrey Blainey
Triumph of the Nomads: A History of Aboriginal Australia
Woodstock, N.Y.: Overlook Press, 1976

Is it possible to romanticize aboriginal peoples and still tell the truth about them?

Geoffrey Blainey did his best to find out with his absorbing study, Triumph of the Nomads. Despite being subtitled A History of Aboriginal Australia, it really is nothing of the sort. Read more …

The Open Secrets of Sheldon Whitehouse

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse

1,184 words

Politics is all about open secrets. This is especially true in societies as racially integrated and tribal as ours has become. These open secrets went on glittering display last Friday during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Both the Republicans – who at least nominally support his nomination – and the Democrats, who vehemently oppose it, spoke piously to moral platitudes. Read more …

White Tribalism in Action:
Lauren Southern’s Farmlands

1,777 words

The most dangerous and remarkable thing about Lauren Southern’s wonderful documentary Farmlands is that it promotes white tribalism. For most people – whites and non-whites alike – this is enough to make the film anathema. They will recognize it for the taboo-breaking film that it is and either stop watching or begin hating Lauren Southern as a racist or white supremacist. Sympathizing with whites as victims just isn’t cool these days, you see. Read more …

The Great Unz-Cole Holocaust Debate

Ron Unz

3,243 words

Introduction

Last month, Ron Unz of the Unz Review posted a 17,600 word article about Holocaust denial as part of his American Pravda series. Not only does he offer a brief history of Holocaust denial and a compendium of its literature, he also attempts to cast enough doubt upon what’s known as the Holocaust to suggest that perhaps it didn’t happen exactly the way mainstream historians say it did.

Only the Pig Tastes Good:
Thoughts on Billy Joel’s “Only the Good Die Young”

2,352 words

Like a lot of kids in my town growing up, I was really into the music of Billy Joel. There was a period in my early teens in which I listened to almost no one else. I loved the attitude, the craft, the variety, the cleverness. And I have to give Joel credit for being the first pop star to whom I seriously listened and whose work I avidly collected. Read more …

Debunking Ryan Faulk

2,817 words

So Ryan Faulk has come out against White Nationalism – but we already knew he would sooner or later.

Faulk is a race-realist blogger who runs the influential, data-driven site, The Alternative Hypothesis. He and his frequent collaborator Sean Last have been writing about racial matters from a more or less pro-white perspective for the past decade. Yet Faulk is and always will be his own man.

Fight When You Must:
Realpolitik and the Right

Niccolò Machiavelli

2,612 words

Recently the question of realpolitik in the White Nationalist movement came up, and it generated the best kind of debate: pointed and informed, yet civil. In my favorable review of the 2017 film Chappaquiddick, I decided to take a novel approach to the Chappaquiddick affair by suggesting that Ted Kennedy had done the right thing by not resigning afterward and that the people of Massachusetts had done the right thing by standing by him, despite their man’s transparent acts of cowardice and deception. In other words, can – or should – a person sacrifice his own soul for the betterment of a political movement? Read more …

Chappaquiddick (2017)
Directed by John Curran
Written by Taylor Allen & Andrew Logan

Hostiles: A Review

1,969 words

Hostiles (2017)
Written, directed, & co-produced by Scott Cooper
Starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi, & Jesse Plemons

Never have I seen a movie cuck so hard, so fast.

Normally, I wouldn’t even consider reviewing a movie that is so antithetical to the goals of white advocacy. Why write up two thousand words on a movie that few of us will see and even fewer should? Read more …

Come Back to Disney, Jimmy Gunn, Jimmy Gunn

James Gunn

2,451 words

For those of us on the Right who are conspiracy-minded, the Trump administration has been the gift that keeps on giving. Of course, the political conspiracies are fun to read about: Pizzagate, the Deep State, Russian collusion, the Steele dossier, illegal wiretapping, fake news. There’s no end to it. These are all elements of 2010s political ephemera which at first glance seem about as meaningful as hanging chads and swift boats were in the previous decade. But with President Trump being such a wildcard, who knows? Maybe there is something to these modern conspiracies. Read more …

On Selective Subjectivity & the Hijacking of White History

3,761 words

Everyone has selective memory. It makes sense that people with high opinions of themselves will place greater importance on positive memories than on negative ones. It also makes sense that people with negative opinions of themselves will harp on bad or painful memories at the expense of positive ones. Read more …

An Open Letter to Vox Day

2,260 words

Dear Vox,

Regarding your recent Darkstream entitled “White Supremacy, White Nationalism, and Other Fictions,” I’m finding myself having to infer what your position is on a number of topics. In this letter, I’ll explain why I remain confused on some of them so you can set me straight if you care to. I’d like to also further certain aspects of the discussion because I believe the Darkstream format—with your speaking more or less extemporaneously while fielding questions— Read more …

On Race Realism & the Dissident Right

Thomas Dixon, Jr.

3,474 words

The other day, the Z-Man did another one of his excellent podcasts, this one entitled “The Dissident Right.” As he described it, the show focused on “what it means to be on the Dissident Right” and offered a brief rundown of the Right from a generic dissident perspective. It is as good an introduction to the Dissident Right as you can get.

In this podcast, Z-Man lets us in on the egalitarian orthodoxy on the Left and mainstream Right and what it means to dissent from that through race and gender realism. Read more …

The Incredibles 2

2,167 words

Appreciating Pixar’s The Incredibles 2 really is all about perspective, and that perspective comes only after experiencing the giddy nirvana of watching the first Incredibles movie. Going into the sequel, I was prepared to forgive it for not quite living up to the original, but would not forgive if it did not remain true to the spirit of the original. I’m fairly easy to please in this regard given that the spirit of the original was such a unique and wonderful thing.  Read more …

The ACLU Goes SJW

2,272 words

A few days ago, I came across an article from reason.com entitled “Leaked Internal Memo Reveals the ACLU Is Wavering on Free Speech.” It decries something that most on the Dissident Right are already quite aware of: that the ACLU is a Leftist organization which is now struggling to integrate its pro-civil liberties, pro-First Amendment mission with an illiberal, social justice agenda.  Read more …

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 …

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 the Doxxing of Ricky Vaughn

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 …
