Events Have Been Set in Motion

1,071 words

Very few people today remember Colonel-General Gotthard Heinrici (1886–1971). Considered by many experts to be one of the greatest defensive military strategists of all time, General Heinrici was given the unenviable task in the closing months of World War II of organizing the retreat of German forces on the Eastern Front.

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 …

It is important for White Nationalists to visualize what victory would look like. There are really two answers to this question. The ultimate answer is our vision of Whitopia, the society we want to create. But before we build Whitopia, we need to achieve a victory over the present political system. Read more …

Interview with Maureen O’Connor for New York Magazine

Otto Dix, Portrait of the Journalist Sylvia von Harden, 1926

1,025 words

These are the answers I gave in an email interview with Maureen O’Connor, who primarily writes about sex, for a New York Magazine story. The interview was really to provide background information for an article focusing on Jack Donovan. Only a few of my words actually made it into the published article, so I am publishing the full interview here.

Maureen O’Connor: Do you consider yourself a White Nationalist?

Greg Johnson: Yes. Read more …

White Nationalism, the Alt Right, & the Alt Light

1,550 words

There is a lot of confusion about the relationship of White Nationalism, the Alt Right, and the so-called Alt Light.

The “Alt Right” is a vague category that encompasses different tendencies of thought united by their rejection of mainstream conservatism. White Nationalism is one such tendency, and the Alt Light is another.

The Alt Light is defined by civic nationalism as opposed to racial nationalism. Read more …

In this conversation, which you can listen to on YouTube here, Robert and Pilleater talk to me about the Alt Left, West-Coast White Nationalism, how White Nationalism will triumph, and how cultural and sexual inferiority complexes are among the driving forces for White-Asian miscegenation and cultural appropriation.

The Alternative Right & Imageboards

2,774 words

Defining the Alternative Right

The “Alternative Right” is an umbrella-term used to group-together a mass of Right-wing spheres; “Right-wing” meaning antiliberal, anti-egalitarian, and anti-Whig as an ultimate outlook (though with plenty of room for intercommunity disagreement). Read more …

Nazism & the Alt Right:
At Peace With Ourselves

1,558 words

Time and time again the Alt Right gets dragged into disputes over the legacy of German National Socialism. They revolve around whether it should be denounced or embraced and whether it is expedient to display Nazi symbolism in public given the mainstream media’s incessant attempts to demonize any kind of white racial consciousness by inextricably linking it to the real or alleged brutalities of German National Socialism.

What Trump’s Election Means for Identitarianism

baldeagle2,336 words

Last April, I wrote an article for Counter-Currents called “What Would a Trump Presidency Mean for Europe?” In it, I — like so many others in our neck of the political woods — predicted that Trump would win the election, and I discussed the impact I thought his victory would have on the situation in Europe.

It is ironic — or maybe just sadly fitting — that Richard Spencer, the man who launched the Alternative Right brand, may have just destroyed it. But that seems to be fallout of his speech at the recent National Policy Institute conference, which he ended with the words “Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail Victory!” Read more …

“Hiding the Ball” of White Nationalist History

John Singleton Copley, Portrait of Paul Revere, 1768

John Singleton Copley, Portrait of Paul Revere, 1768

1,317 words

For the past few days the mainstream media have been deluging us with one of their favorite clichés about Euro-American nationalism. They keep telling us that the Alt Right or New Right are just old-fashioned “racism” relabeled as a public-relations move. According to The New Republic, National Review, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, this rightist movement is nothing more than old-style “white supremacy” and Klanster cross-burnings, now dressed up in Jos. A. Bank suits at posh intellectual conferences.  Read more …

The Road to Alt Right Artistry

Since Hillary Clinton’s mention of the Alternative Right in one of her speeches, there have been countless discussions about what the Alt Right is and represents, with everyone and anyone, no matter how inappropriate, suddenly declaring they are part of the Alt Right. I think it is quite easy to define what the Alt Right is: it is the postmodern manifestation of what Julius Evola termed the True Right.  Read more …

The Jewish Question for Normies

rembrmoses3,538 words

The notion that the Alt-Right is full of hatred and bigotry against Jews is one complaint that is echoed almost equally across both the Left and Right. Even many mainstream conservatives who oppose the Alt-Right but would never agree that the Alt-Right is racist because of its perspectives on race still accuse the Alt-Right of being anti-Semitic because of its perspectives on Jews.

What the Alt Right Isn’t

4,568 words

dontdolist-resized-600In the early days of GRECE, the think tank of the Nouvelle Droite (New Right), which included such luminaries as Alain de Benoist and Pierre Vial, it was considered necessary to make a clean break with the failures of the past, totems that many on the Right still clung to. This new generation of writers, mostly in their 20s during the cultural revolution of ’68, felt that nostalgia for a lost cause — and there were several — stood in the way of their values finding political and cultural support from the majority of their countryman.
