The Bernie Bro Question, Part 2:
Rebels Without a Candidate

3,360 words

Some in the Dissident Right have pined for and predicted a mass defection from the materialist Left to the Dissident Right.

Of course, people have been talking about a theoretical Bernie Bro-to-Dissident Right pipeline since at least 2016, if not earlier. Read more …

The Bernie Bro Question, Part 1:
Exit Stage Left

2,809 words

Bernie Sanders has, at last, put his supporters out of their misery by dropping out of the 2020 Democratic primaries. He will not be the president. He will not be the nominee. There will be no Christmas miracle at the convention. It’s Trump vs Biden in November. Read more …

Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 3:

Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 2:
Is Capitalism the Real Racist?

2,696 words

There are reasons why the neoliberal establishment hates Bernie Sanders so much, and it’s not just because he’s a threat to their donors’ stock portfolios. Class-based material Marxism — once a pillar of Leftist thought — is not only incompatible with but also heretical to the neoliberal worldview and agenda. Read more …

Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 1:
Here’s How Bernie Could Still Win!

1,211 words

Last week, Counter-Currents published an article by Robert Hampton called “The Bernie Temptation,” where he made the case as to why nationalists should not support Bernie Sanders for president. I can’t find much to disagree with in his assessment. Read more …

Nick Fuentes & Our Xenus

By now, the Groyper War is old news, and I’m just now getting around to writing about it. But there are several reasons for that.

First of all, if you want to make some groyper-related content, you have to be pretty quick on the draw Read more …

Imitation of Life & an Imitation of Imitation of Life

4,134 words

We live an age where no one wants to be white if they can help it. That’s why you have honkies like Robert “Beto” O’Rourke pretending be Hispanic, Shaun King pretending to be black, and Elizabeth Warren pretending to be Native American. But it was not so long ago when the opposite was true, and it was non-whites who, if possible, tried to pass themselves off as whites. Imitation of Life is a movie about the latter. Read more …

Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 in order to expand our efforts to build a metapolitical vanguard for White Nationalism. So far, we have received 288 donations totaling $60,338.79.

Meme War II: European Vacation

5,407 words

What to do about Tommy Robinson has long been a moral quandary for the Dissident Right. The purist position was, “No, the guy is a narcissist conman controlled by Zionist Jews” – which no one on our side really disputes.

The Man, the Meme, Morrissey

3,974 words

You would think that after more than thirty-five years in the public eye that there would be no more surprises left. You would think that now that he’s turning 60, all the youthful rebellion would be long gone. And you would think that after the last two months of the media losing their collective marbles over Moz’s red-pilled statements and his support for the Right-wing populist party For Britain, that Morrissey would be ready to lay low for a while.

Frank Fay:
Debunking Kliph Nesteroff’s Lies About the Father of Stand-Up

Based comedian Frank Fay

6,201 words

This article is the opposite of the article that I originally set out to write, which was about Frank Fay, the Nazi-sympathizing fascist vaudevillian who invented stand-up comedy. I mean, it says right there on Frank Fay’s Wikipedia page that “[i]n January 1946, just months after Nazi Germany had been defeated, a rally of 10,000 white supremacists gathered at Madison Square Garden for a pro-fascist event called ‘The Friends of Frank Fay’.” That sounds like a good topic for a White Nationalist Website, right? “Hey, kids! Did you know that stand-up comedy was invented by a fascist?”

Coal Burning Point USA:
The Fast Times & Short Career of Ashley St. Clair

2,829 words

Everyone loves a good social media implosion.

A good implosion is, among other things, a comeuppance: one where the mask falls at last and a hotsy totsy e-celeb is exposed to be every bit the no-good son of a bitch that you always kinda knew he was, but now everyone knows. His status as a no-good son-of-a-bitch becomes a matter of public record and public knowledge. Read more …

Morrissey Strikes Back:
The Pin is Mightier than the Sword

2,932 words

“I straighten up, and my position is one of hope. The march backwards is over, and life has begun again.” — Morrissey

 A couple weeks ago, I wrote an article about the iconic ex-Smiths singer and champion of the white race Morrissey and his drift to the Right and support of Anne-Marie Waters and her party For Britain. Read more …

One of the most satisfying aspects of Morrissey’s recent drift into the populist nativist Right is the absolute butthurt from his shitlib fans. It’s glorious. They feel so betrayed. Read more …

The Last Temptation of Owen Benjamin

Owen Benjamin

5,274 words

On the Dissident Right, it can sometimes appear that we exist in a constant state of stalemate – that nothing is happening and that we are all just wasting our time. Progress and gains are being made, but slowly and imperceptibly – unless you know what to look for.

The blue-pilled are getting a tiny bit more purple every day. Things that were only discussed on the chans and message boards a few years ago are now out in the open. Read more …

The Enigma of Christchurch

2,764 words

I fought in the Optics Wars. I was in there, man. I was in those 504-um mega-threads alongside Ricky Vaughn, Weev, and Andrew Anglin, debating the primary issue of the day (optics) against the members of the Traditional Workers Party, their malevolent wignat allies, and the odd well-meaning “us pro-whites have to stick together no matter what” useful idiot.

The Dying Days of Russiagate

1,823 words

I haven’t really paid all that much attention to Russiagate, because the whole thing has been an obvious hoax from the beginning.

I mean, the whole Mueller investigation was really long, really boring, and really, really complicated. Keeping up with the godforsaken mess just seemed like a lot of work for what was an obvious hoax destined to end in a whimpering anti-climax. Just call me when it’s time for the Schadenfreude.

We’re All Jets Now:
The Racial Politics of West Side Story

5,930 words

So Stephen Spielberg is remaking West Side Story.

Let me guess, Stephen. You believe that in the era of Trump, this classic tale of nativists versus immigrants — and about how “we should all just get along because we really aren’t all that different when you really think about it” — is more relevant than ever. Did I guess right, Stephen? Did I?

Interview with Ryan Faulk

3,940 words

It was about a year ago this time that legendary-for-all-the-wrong-reasons Skeptic Youtuber Kraut and Tea decided to take up the sword in a mad quest to slay the White Nationalist hydra that was menacing the internet and, more importantly, frequently making him look dumb. His weapon of choice in the matter was a series of embarrassingly and easily debunked race denial videos. One the people doing the debunking of those videos was Ryan Faulk of the YouTube channel The Alternative HypothesisRead more …
