Revolution is in the Air

Members of the West Ohio Minutemen Militia outside the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in 2016.

2,394 words

Is it idle, or at least premature, to talk about “revolution from the Right”? Whether it is or is not, that is exactly what leaders of the Right have been talking about for some years, from Pat Buchanan’s “Middle American Revolution” and his imagery of the “Buchanan Brigades” and peasants with pitchforks rebelling against “King George,” to Newt Gingrich and his now-forgotten jabber about the “Republican Revolution.” Read more …

Principalities & Powers, Part Five:
The Buchanan Revolution

Patrick Buchanan in 1992

2,003 words

Nothing churns the entrails of the professional democracy priesthood more than the rancid taste of a little real democracy. Since one of the main dishes on the 1992 political menu has been a generous serving of authentic popular rebellion, the sages have spent a good part of the last year lurching for their lavatories.

The Anti-Christian Alt-Right
A Response to Matthew Rose

1,126 words

First Things bills itself as “America’s most influential journal of religion and public life.” Founded in 1990 by Richard John Neuhaus, First Things is offers a conservative and Christian outlook on culture and politics. But, like everything else that is conservative and Christian in America today, First Things is careful to say nothing that challenges Jewish cultural and political hegemony. Read more …

Orbán, Islam, Russia, Feminism, & the Stuff Dreams are Made Of

1,818 words

To the utter despair of materialist historians, existence (a subtle philosophical French concept, which would probably translate into Rightist English as values) keeps preceding essence: we are not only what we are, but also – and, at some turning points of history, predominantly – what we fancy to be.

Time For Anti-Com?

2,723 words

There’s not going to be a “civil war” on November 4th. Let’s get that straight right off the bat. The excitable predictions of an Antifa “uprising,” the foolish claims “Antifa supersoldiers” will be “beheading” people credulously published by sites like Gateway Pundit, the shadowy “sources” claiming President Trump is preparing for martial law and the chest beating predictions about conservatives ready to gun down Leftists in the street is all nonsense.

Robert Whitaker Remembered

1,070 words

On Saturday, June 3, Robert Whitaker passed away in his sleep at the age of 76. His life should be commemorated by White Nationalists and the Alt Right given that he was one of the first to articulate white grievances against enforced multiculturalism in a way equal and opposite to how non-whites have always complained about whites. A palecon’s paleocon, Whitaker could be placed alongside Wilmot Robertson as an underground torch-bearer of white interests during the 1970s and 1980s. 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 …

Good for Not Being Bad:
An Alt Right Take on President Trump’s Speech to Congress

2,228 words

What we think of as good is often a relative thing. A piece of moldy bread, for example, would be considered “good” if you’re starving. But if you’re not? Well, then it’s “good riddance to bad garbage.” Read more …

Puzder’s Unpatriotic Capitalism

Andrew Puzder indicates how much respect he has for American workers

2,560 words

One issue that seems to have escaped analysis in this election cycle is the fact that Trump received wide support from American conservatives despite taking a surprisingly “liberal” stance on a wide range of economic issues. While many of Trump’s economic policies come from the Republican playbook, here are a few of the stereotypically “liberal” economic policies Trump has claimed to support:  Read more …

Two Cheers for Jesse Helms

senator-jesse-helms3,698 words

The greatest accomplishments in politics are not always noticed or remembered. Often we take worthy actions for granted if they are done behind the scenes by men who wish not to call undue attention to themselves. Such men presided smoothly over good times and made it look easy. President Eisenhower is a good example of strong, classy, conservative leader who did right by his country and his people without making a big fuss about it.  Read more …

Right-Wingers Versus Conservatives

cucks1,735 words

One of the more interesting things about this current election cycle is that it has been forcing many of us on the Right to redefine who we are. Maybe not so much for long-time readers of Counter-Currents and other sites aligned with the Alt Right, Read more …

Remembering Louis de Bonald:
October 2, 1754–November 23, 1840

Louis de Bonald, 1754–1840

137 words

Louis Gabriel Ambroise, Vicomte de Bonald, is one of the great French counter-Revolutionary conservative thinkers. For an overview of his life, see “Louis Gabriel Ambroise, Vicomte de Bonald,” here at Counter-Currents.

The Alt Right & Conservatism

elephantbones2,142 words

Conservatism, said Russell Kirk, is “neither a religion nor an ideology.” Today, its most stalwart defenders believe it is both. “True conservatism,” we are told, is under attack from the Alt Right, a shadowy group which encompasses everyone from the CEO of Donald Trump’s campaign to anonymous Twitter accounts who worship a cartoon frog. Because they do not agree with conservative “principles,” the so-called “true conservatives” are already fantasizing about another Beltway Right “purge” of the unbelievers.  Read more …

Protest Blues:
An Alt-Right Take on Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick stoically endures oppression

1,161 words

We can pretty much tell how far along a conservative is on the road to the Alt-Right by gauging his reaction to the latest storm-in-a-teacup outrage still brewing on social media. On August 26th, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem.

Safety, Prosperity, & Peace:
Trump’s Path to the White House

596 words

At the 2008 American Renaissance conference, Michael Walker made a very simple point about democratic politics that has stuck with me. Most people are not interested in ideology and moral principles. Instead, he said, quoting British socialist politician Tony Benn, they are interested in “security, peace, and prosperity.”  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 …

American Aberrationalism:
Trump is Normal, the Republican Party is Not

TrumpEconomist1,635 words

From the end of the American Civil War until the First World War, and then again until the FDR administration, an alliance of Northern industrial and business interests dominated the federal government of the United States through the vehicle of the Republican party, and left their stamp on American politics. The only Democrats who held the office of president were Andrew Johnson, Grover Cleveland, and Woodrow Wilson, compared to 11 Republicans.  Read more …

Colin Flaherty on Black Violence

WhiteGirl1,174 words

As white nationalists, I think we often find ourselves agreeing with mainstream conservatives, but for different reasons. A good example would be Colin Flaherty, author of the indispensable works ‘White Girl Bleed A Lot’: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It (WND Books, 2013) and ‘Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry’: The Hoax of Black Victimization and How We Enable It (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015).  Read more …
