Unite the Right 2 Couldn’t Have Been Better

1,068 words

I feared the worst, but I am glad that I was wrong. Jason Kessler’s Unite the Right 2 rally outside the White House on Sunday, August 12th, was a triumph. It was still a highly risky, even foolhardy venture, and I would not have done it. But luckily, it ended up being good for white identity politics.  Read more …

Valkoisuus

2,476  words

Suomentanut Timo Hännikäinen; English original here

Yksi ilmeinen tapa hyökätä valkoista nationalismia vastaan on väittää, että itse valkoisuuden käsite on ongelmallinen. Käsittelen nyt neljää sellaista vastaväitettä. Ensiksi, valkoisuuden käsitettä pidetään poliittisesti tarpeettomana. Toiseksi, valkoisuuden oletetaan kumoavan etnisen identiteetin. Kolmanneksi, valkoisuuden väitetään olevan sosiaalinen konstruktio, ei luonnollinen kategoria. Read more …

The Counter-Currents 2018 Fundraiser
Bubble Boys

1,119 words

According to standard Left-wing boilerplate, White Nationalists like me don’t speak or write; we “spew.” We don’t “spew” ideas, arguments, and facts. We spew “hate.” This hate, moreover, does not spread from mind to mind because it rationally convinces people. Instead, its propagation is “virulent,” like Ebola. When a mind virus is spreading, one does not refute it by appeals to facts and arguments. Instead, you have to contain it. You have to quarantine the carriers, like me, so they can’t infect other people. In short, you need censorship.

Dov Bechhofer Did Nothing Wrong

Dr. Dov Bechhofer

3,105 words

Antifa in New York City have doxxed a White Nationalist, and this one is quite a find: an Orthodox Jewish doctor working at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx by the name of Dov Bechhofer. Bechhofer’s father is an Orthodox rabbi.

According to the doxxers, Dr. Bechhofer made a number of comments at Counter-Currents. In the article, Spencer Sunshine, an associate fellow at the think tank Political Research Associates who studies far-Right movements, Read more …

Video of the Day
Greg Johnson on the Driving Force of History

56 words / 6:25

What is the foundation of the political? What is the basis for ethnic nationalism? Greg Johnson talks about the concept of thumos, us and them, the natural preference for one’s own over strangers, and where the rejection of these ideas leads us. Excerpts are used from “What’s Wrong With Cosmopolitanism?” and Laura Raim’s interview with Greg.

Whiteness

3,352 words

Translation: Finnish, Ukrainian

An obvious line of attack against White Nationalism is the claim that the very concept of whiteness is problematic. I wish to deal with four such objections. First, the concept of whiteness is supposed to be politically unnecessary. Second, whiteness is alleged to be subversive of ethnic identity. Third, whiteness is said to be a social construct, not a real natural kind. Fourth, the viability of White Nationalism is said to depend on an airtight definition of whiteness, which is elusive.  Read more …

Remembering William Butler Yeats:
June 13, 1865–January 28, 1939

William Butler Yeats, 1865-1939

170 words

William Butler Yeats, the Irish poet, playwright, and politician, was born on this day in 1865. One of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century, Yeats’ life and work straddle the great divide between Romanticism and Modernism. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

In life and in art, Yeats rejected modern rationalism, materialism, and egalitarianism. He saw them as coarsening and brutalizing.
