Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery . . . Except When It’s Not

1,116 words

About a month ago an anonymous user on 4chan – a Cantonese swallow’s nest recipe board, and one of the darkest corners of the Internet – suggested that his fellow users impersonate G-d’s Chosen People on Twitter to bypass Anti-Defamation League censorship. I was going to comment on the resulting controversy, but I figured someone else would beat me to it, and then forgot about it. Read more …

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.

How Twitter Censors Right-Wing Users

1,110 words

When people talk about censorship on Twitter, it is often naïvely assumed that this must mean straightforward banning of users, or clumsy deletion of individual tweets. In fact, individual tweets are very rarely deleted, except in tandem with sanctioning the user responsible (usually with a lifelong ban, or a precursor to it).

Who Do You Want in Charge of the Internet?

Oliver Darcy of CNN, proof that one reporter has the power to do a lot of damage to free speech.

1,919 words

Tech censorship is an existential threat to the Dissident Right. No serious political movement can successfully operate if it is barred from social media. Even mainstream conservatives are being threatened by this, and Big Tech may sway the 2020 election against Donald Trump.

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.

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 …

“There is no free speech in [the] real world and you will be suppressed for telling the truth that is not supported by the system.” — Nasim Aghdam
