Thoughts on the State of the Right

4,473 words

Editor’s Note:

This is a very important essay. Please read, comment, and share. — Greg Johnson

There’s no sense in mincing words anymore: The Alt Right has hit a wall and is presently faced with the hard task of pulling back and searching for a new course. The enemy media are (prematurely) claiming victory. Read more …

How the GOP Establishment Created the Dissident Right, & How the Democrats are Supplying its Second Wave

3,900 words

If we go back in time – not far, mind you, just barely over a decade ago – we see a political landscape that looks almost nothing like the one we have today. It is unbelievable how rapidly everything changed in such a short period of time. Read more …

Response to “Why the Alt Right Movement Will Fail”

3,839 words

The following is a response to a pleb-tier YouTube video entitled “Why The [sic] ‘Alt Right’ Movement Will Fail” which has over 60,000 views as of me writing this. [It now has over 113k views. — Ed.] In it, a snarky young nonwhite man attempts to give several reasons why the Alt Right has no future. Read more …

Rally ‘Round the Flag

2,335 words

In the wake of Charlottesville, there has been much discussion about optics and the most effective aesthetic strategies for the growing White Nationalist movement. Andrew Anglin recently pronounced the Alt Right “dead” and implied that American symbology was the best path forward. He received instant blowback from many in the movement. Read more …

George Hawley’s Making Sense of the Alt-Right

1,758 words

George Hawley
Making Sense of the Alt-Right
New York: Columbia University Press, 2017

George Hawley is an amazingly productive young political scientist at the University of Alabama. By my count, Making Sense of the Alt-Right is his fifth book in four years. Last year, I reviewed his Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism, for which I had high praise, although I complained that he had not dealt with populism, which was the animating force Trump’s ongoing rise to the White House.  Read more …

Rebranding the Right

Mixed messages.

2,733 words

After any setback, it is perfectly natural and proper to reassess one’s tactics and goals. It is, after all, a winning attitude after a loss to blame oneself and not one’s enemies.

Vivisecting the Femiblob, Part Two

3,695 words

Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)

The Advantage of the Other

In 1683 the troops of the Ottoman Empire marched to the gates of Vienna, in the very heart of Europe. Their intention was clear: sack the city, rape and kill the inhabitants, and use it as a staging base for their expansion into the rest of Christendom. Although the Poles under John III Sobieski saved the day, Read more …

Nostradamus

2,083 words

Like many in the West, I’m sure, I spent fifteen minutes in my youth being fascinated by the seventeenth-century Jewish prophet Nostradamus. Anyone who can fold time like a piece of paper and then burrow through it to get a peek at the other side is certainly someone we would all like to know about. Can that even be done? If so, in God’s name, how? How can someone make remarkably accurate predictions of events which are scheduled to happen hundreds of years after his death? Read more …

Anders Breivik Revisited

The campers on Utøya the day before Breivik’s attack.

My recent article, “Anders Breivik and the Manchester Bombing,” elicited such controversy and outrage among our readership that I felt an encore was necessary. The Breivik massacre is fairly unique in that it acts as a firecracker, Read more …

How to Talk to Conservatives (and Why We Must)

3,282 words

About twenty years ago, I overheard a conversation between two college kids about a subversive new cable television program called South Park. One kid was enthralled by the show’s pointed satire, sophisticated cultural references, and frequent sexual and scatological references. Read more …

Nations Don’t Go Extinct Due to Loss of Material Comforts:
A Response to Bain Dewitt

Jared Kushner donned his smartest business casual attire for his visit to American troops in Iraq, while Ivanka wrote his name across the front of his bulletproof vest so that everyone in the changing room would know it was his.

3,285 words

The article “Russians Are Not #Ourguys” by Mr. Dewitt has generated a whirlwind of heated response from Counter-Currents readers. In my humble and candid opinion, the article reeks of being a piece of neocon shilling (dotted by some ostensibly decent and rational remarks, admittedly) which reads like it’s straight from the National Review or even The Weekly Standard.

I Scream, You Scream

Chinese ice cream.

1,412 words

In case you missed it, I recently I got into a little tiff with one of my blogging idols, Kim du Toit. On April 28, Counter-Currents published an article of mine, “Kim du Toit and the Freedom Paradox,” in which I more or less introduced Kim to the Alt Right and took him to task in a nice and respectful way over our political differences. Kim was one of my favorite bloggers of the previous decade and was just coming off an eight-year hiatus, so I figured the time was right. Read more …

The Alt Lite & the Spectrum Axis

1,775 words

It is a very simple idea.

Remember that in the film Moneyball, the new Assistant General Manager, Peter Brand, said that “it’s all about getting things down to one number.” Like Spearman’s g, but for baseball. A single number which could establish a player’s objective worth. Read more …

On Gavin McInnes & the Alt Lite

2,064 words

Recently, Gavin McInnes, our friend over at Taki’s Magazine, helpfully released a video entitled “What is the Alt Right?” In it, he does a pretty good job of describing who (or what) most of us are, dividing us into the “Alt Lite,” the “Alt Right,” and everyone else. Read more …

The Weaponized Nonsense of George Lakoff

1,446 words

Sometimes you read a newspaper column that starts off so pointlessly and insipidly you can’t tell whether it’s supposed to be a parody of bad writing, or the writer just wants to introduce a humorous idea but can’t find the right hook to hang it on. This happened a few days ago (April 10) in The Washington Post, with a column by one Steven Petrow. Read more …

There Is Nothing the Alt Right Can Do about the Effeminacy of White Men

Cato the Elder: The Face of Rising Rome

2,617 words

Some white men are identifying with the Alt Right as they realize that the goals and norms celebrated by our social order are underpinned by multiple deceptions, suppression of debate, anti-scientific notions about human equality, and unjust opposition to white identity Read more …

Welcome to the League of Shadows!

2,494 words

This essay was originally a talk delivered to The New York Forum on Sunday, March 26, 2017.

I had an interesting conversation the other night with an old friend of mine who has been involved in one way or another with our movement since he was in high school. We were discussing the dramatic changes that have taken place in just the last several years. Read more …

Whose Jane Austen is It, Anyway?

Mock ad by Michael O’Donoghue & George W. S. Trow, 1971 National Lampoon

2,215 words

For the past couple of weeks there’s been a lot of media blather about how the novelist Jane Austen is an icon of the Alt Right. The distress this causes Leftist critics has been a thing of high comedy and low hysteria.

If you haven’t been keeping up, I review some articles immediately below. Otherwise, feel free to skip about halfway down, where I get into matters of cultural appropriation and Austen sex roles. Read more …

Alt Right versus New Right

Alt Right meets New Right: John Morgan with Alain de Benoist at the 2013 NPI conference.

3,873 words (Greek translation here; Hungarian translation here)

The following is the text of the talk that John Morgan was scheduled to deliver at Identitarian Ideas IX in Stockholm last Saturday, but was unable to due to circumstances beyond his control. As such it was intended for a primarily Swedish audience.

Today I want to talk about two schools of political thought that on the surface seem similar, but that are in fact quite different in a number of fundamental ways: namely the Alt Right and the European New Right. Read more …

Milo-lita: More Musings on Milo

2,948 words

Writers like myself have to be careful when addressing famous figures currently associated with the Alt Right. While I contribute as well as I can, offering insights, ideas, and disseminating information from the sidelines, what I do pales in comparison to what the movement’s leaders and central figures contribute. It is mostly out of gratitude and humility that I refrain from making critical comments about these people. Read more …

A Response to an Insightful Comment

1,664 words

One of the scariest moments when playing chess is when you spot a weakness in your own position which you can only hope your opponent doesn’t see. All you can do is wait and pray that he doesn’t move his bishop there or his queen there because that would convert what is already a difficult circumstance for you into a desperate one. Read more …

A Place for Women in the Alt Right

1,434 words

It’s no secret that historically, men have harnessed intelligence, drive, pride, and anger to lead and conquer, while women have been empathetic supporting characters who provide vital biological services. For the most part, it’s a model that works, and Alt Right arguments for traditional female roles are legitimate: there’s tremendous value in having women devoted to raising many healthy, happy, stable children amidst a well-tended home.

Has the Alt Lite Embraced the [North American] New Right?

1,200 words

The following is reprinted from Atlantic Centurion.

Since the Alt Right tends to be a little extreme for the average pro-Trump blogger or supplements salesman, the loose collection of civic nationalists and cultural libertarians we’ve taken to calling the Alt Lite or Alt RINOs has started grasping for a label to give itself. Read more …

The Dallas Massacre, the Tyranny of Bullshit, & the Pseudo Alt-Right

DallasShooter1,180 words

“Black lives matter, Blue Lives Matter, All lives matter” — Bang! Bang! Bang! Splatter splatter splatter!”

Right now, the media — both the old desiccated mainstream version and the snarky shitposty memey new version, powered by the autistic and lonely — has a glint in its eye, a bounce in its step, and a tremulous quaver in its voice. In other words it has something to bang on about — a bit like the sniper(s) and other assorted thugs in Dallas, Read more …

The Best Ever White Ethnostate out of the West

David Cole

David Cole

1,926 words

The other day, I read an interesting article by David Cole over at Taki’s Magazine entitled “Prom Night Trumpster Babies.” It was the typical cleverness of Mr. Cole: starting with his anti-Semitic friends on the Alt-Right, seguing into irritating white liberal hipsters, and then to how stupid and ill-informed it is to make abortion the main reason for supporting Hillary, and then, finally, to how the Alt-Right may agree with Hillary supporters on abortion, Read more …
