Sitting Out the China Cold War

1,389 words

The United Kingdom will now potentially allow millions of Hong Kongers to become British citizens. The new policy was made in response to China’s new security law that curbs Hong Kong’s autonomy. Under the new policy set by the Conservative government of Boris Johnson, all Hong Kongers who have a British National Overseas Read more …

Everyone Hates Woodrow Wilson

1,363 words

Woodrow Wilson once stood as a hero to modern progressives. The 28th president’s moral idealism, disregard for constitutional fealty, and belief in the goodness of “big government” endeared him to liberals of the Barack Obama era. Commentators positively noted the similarities between Wilson and Obama Read more …

The Real Meaning of Juneteenth

1,481 words

Unless you’re a Texan, you probably never heard of Juneteenth until last week.

This holiday celebrates the end of slavery and has long been a minor holiday in the Lone Star State. It commemorates the day — June 19, 1865 — where the Union declared all slaves in the state of Texas free, Read more …

St. George Floyd:
A Modern Christian Martyr?

1,335 words

Nearly every church is mourning a drug-addicted, deadbeat dad who pointed a gun at a pregnant woman’s stomach. You would almost think George Floyd is on his way to beatification based on the reaction from Christian groups worldwide. Read more …

In Defense of Karens

1,193 words / 7:34

Audio version: To listen in a player, click here. To download the mp3, right-click here and choose “save link as” or “save target as.”

The internet can’t stop hating on Karens. These middle-aged white women continue to cause problems for America and are hated by both the Left and the Right. The Left claims they’re white women who weaponize their privilege to oppress minorities. The Right ignores the racial angle and says they’re just annoying tattle-tales. Read more …

What the Right Can Learn from the DSA

1,561 words

The Democratic Socialists of America, once obscure, are now one of the most powerful left-wing groups in the country. But Bernie Sanders’ humiliating loss in the Democratic primary casts doubt on the eventual triumph of the DemSoc utopia. Could the DSA just be a flash in the pan? And, most importantly for us, what can the Real Right learn from the DSA? Read more …

The “Revolutionary Vanguard” Trap

1,776 words

Right-wingers often say they want to create an “elite” revolutionary vanguard.

This would supposedly attract the best and brightest of our society in order to overthrow it. This elite would be smarter, more dedicated, more athletic, and possibly better-looking than the cattle they wish to rule. “We’re attracting quality, not quantity! Elites, not the masses!” is the eternal response to those who doubt this strategy. Read more …

Bugmen Vikings?
The Religious Conflict In Modern Viking Depictions

1,761 words

ODIN IS WITH US!” shouts the blond beast protagonist in the trailer for the new video game, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. The trailer depicts the Vikings as the noble heroes, fighting against scoundrel Saxons who lie about their misdeeds. The teaser is narrated by an irate Alfred the Great who pillories the Nordic raiders for their bloodlust, godlessness, and cruelty. Read more …

Tribal Denialism

1,615 words

Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past five years, you’ve probably heard about the “dangerous” return of tribalism.

Before 2015 (or before Obama, depending on the source), Americans didn’t put themselves in tribes. They only saw red, white and blue. Everyone was judged as an individual. Civility and decency reigned supreme. Race relations and gender relations were all just fine. Americans were one nation, under God and indivisible. Read more …

The Infamous Crash

2,409 words

The gay romance Brokeback Mountain was predicted to win Best Picture at the 2006 Oscars. Instead, the independent ensemble Crash won; Brokeback was allegedly too gay for the Oscars.

Critics have never gotten over the result. Crash is regularly considered the worst Oscar winner ever and the chattering class has turned the film into a punchline. Read more …

Whose Common Good?

1,503 words

The prevailing conservative legal theory is ripe for a challenge in the nationalist era. Ever since the 1970s, originalism — which mandates a strict interpretation of the Constitution’s original intent — has held sway over the American Right. This mindset has resulted in a deification of the Constitution and the inability to recognize current predicaments as different from the 18th century. Read more …

What About Diaspora Nationalism?

1,726 words

Is political power too far out of our grasp? Are our nations doomed to collapse? Are party politics a rigged game we can never win?

These questions loom over many distraught nationalists. They see Donald Trump as a massive disappointment, they bemoan the persecution European identitarians suffer, they see no possible action to save their people from destruction. Read more …

Melting Crackpot:
E. Michael Jones on Sam Francis

1,945 words

The Catholic writer E. Michael Jones is currently one of the most popular thinkers on the Dissident Right, owing to disaffected nationalists turning to Catholicism in the wake of Charlottesville. In their desperate search for a based Catholic thinker, these young right-wingers settled upon Jones. Jones’s many tirades against Jews and willingness to associate with the Dissident Right make him an appealing figure to aspiring Catholic reactionaries.

Sympathy for the Dragon

1,107 words

People want someone to blame for the coronavirus outbreak. The obvious culprit is China. It originated in China, China tried to cover up the outbreak for weeks, and the communist state has not been open with what it knows about the virus.

But liberals don’t want to blame China. They want to blame Donald Trump. Surprisingly, many on our side share this view. Read more …

Don’t Learn This From the Germans

2,022 words

Susan Neiman
Learning From the Germans: Race and the Memory of Evil
Farrar, Straus, and Giroux: New York, 2019

Germans are notorious for their ethno-masochism. Their official identity is built on guilt and the need for atonement. Germans can only look back at their past with shame; pride is impossible. More Germans are challenging the national guilt cult, but it is still enshrined by the government and the culture. Read more …

Sorry, Bernie Bros; Joe Biden Is Your Nominee

1,541 words

Former Vice President Joe Biden is now all but assured the Democratic nomination. His campaign appeared dead just a few days ago, and Bernie Sanders was thought unstoppable. Now only an unexpected disaster can stop Uncle Joe.

Biden won ten of the contests Tuesday night, exceeding even the most optimistic predictions. The only big race he lost was California, but he made up for it by winning Texas and multiple states that were supposed to go for Bernie. Sanders only won four states. Read more …

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was convicted of criminal sexual assault and rape in the third degree this week. He did catch a break in being found not guilty of the more serious charges of predatory sexual assault and rape in the first degree.

Bugpod Clans Won’t Replace the Family

Sleeping area of a PodShare co-living space.

Right-wing Twitter fumed earlier this week over the provocatively-titled essay “The Nuclear Family Was A Mistake.”

The Atlantic essay, written by New York Times columnist David Brooks, wasn’t necessarily an attack on traditional families. But that didn’t stop the deluge of anger that Brooks would dare slander the family. Read more …

No Greeks or Germans Allowed:
Yoram Hazony’s Anglo-Hebrew Nationalism

Horatio Greenough, George Washington

1,547 words

Israeli scholar Yoram Hazony wants to define nationalism for the entire West.

And that nationalism leaves no room for our classical heritage.

Counter-Currents readers are probably familiar with Hazony, his book The Virtue of Nationalism, and his “National Conservatism” conferences. Greg Johnson’s recent series on Hazony’s book is recommended (parts one, two, three, and four).

This essay covers another aspect of the Israeli political theorist: Read more …

The Bernie Temptation

1,670 words

A septuagenarian “socialist” may be the Democratic presidential nominee, and some on the Dissident Right can’t wait to support him.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is rising in the polls, in spite of the Democratic establishment’s opposition. He narrowly lost to Hillary Clinton in 2016 under similar circumstances.

But 2020 is a very different race from 2016. Read more …

Fear & Gunowning in Richmond Virginia

1,345 words

Thousands of gun owners rallied in Richmond, Virginia on Martin Luther King Day to protest the state’s new gun laws.

This rally was one of the largest right-wing demonstrations in recent memory and effectively communicated citizen dissent against gun control. Nothing violent happened, bad optics were at a minimum (but goofy optics were aplenty), and conservative media lionized the demonstrators. Liberal journalists embarrassed themselves with their desire to portray the protests as a neo-Nazi revolt. Read more …

Midway:
A Different Perspective

3,822 wordsTheatrical release poster for the film Midway.

It was with mixed feelings that I finished reading the highly articulate and skillfully presented review of the film Midway by Robert Hampton. I had similar feelings about the article by Anton.

On the one hand, I heartily agree with their sensible views on the film’s refreshing depictions of American soldiers fighting for a White country, the comparison between Midway and The Patriot, and the rightful place and role of women with White Nationalist and traditionalist overtones.
