The Reemergence of Honesty

1,531 words

It has been commonplace for decades to hear words and phrases uttered casually in a wide range of settings that point to a deep collective discomfort with direct language, i.e. the conveyance of ideas and desires in unambiguous terms. Read more …

The Secret Silencing

Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler being assaulted while attempting to hold a press conference.

2,676 words

The recent coordinated attempt following Charlottesville to smother the Right has forced a renewal of the ancient debate surrounding censorship—what it is, when and if it is ever justified, and how to combat it in those cases that it is employed unjustly. Read more …

Punching Right, 2

1,653 words

In my essay “Punching Right” I explained why I think that there should not be any taboos against criticizing fellow Right-wingers. The only taboos should be against bad ideas, bad arguments, bad manners, and bad faith.  Read more …

Anders Breivik Revisited

The campers on Utøya the day before Breivik’s attack.

The Co-option of the Left:
Its Fatal Misunderstanding of Marx

2,237 words

It’s obvious to anyone with eyes to see that the contemporary Left is spectacularly alienating its own natural constituency with its increasingly unfocused and incoherent forms of protest. Certainly, they are vocal in denouncing Trump as a fascist, and Brexit as some sort of ur-nationalism, Read more …

Falling for Lies at Standing Rock

Heap big hokum at Standing Rock

Heap big hokum at Standing Rock

1,948 words

Just in time for Thanksgiving, leftists were given the perfect opportunity to up their “tying white guilt narratives to celebration of Thanksgiving” game: Native Americans are getting shot down in the streets because the white man is ruining their water and taking their land again! Yes, I am talking about the Standing Rock Sioux’s protests over the North Dakota Access Pipeline. To be clear, I think it’s entirely legitimate for us to have disagreements about energy policy, the relative environmental safety of the various methods of extracting and transporting oil, and so on and so forth.  Read more …

Starting a Fight They Cannot Finish

Brown&Proud1,300 words

One of the golden rules is don’t start a fight you cannot finish, something the Anti-Trump left and their tribally motivated allies should be bearing in mind now, after a spate of cowardly skirmishes with some of the nice White people who attend Trump rallies.  Read more …

Who Welcomes the Refugees?

RefugeesWelcome1,892 words

Lately, some people I have worked with have invited me to learn a little about their new initiatives, namely “Refugees Welcome” NGOs. That was a chance I could not miss, and I decided to attend a few meetings. I can’t say that it was fun, but talking with these people on the formal and informal level was very informative.

To provide you with the proper context: the organizations I got the chance to know are all based in Poland, and they cooperate with other Central European NGOs, Read more …

The Kennedy Assassination & the Big Lie

KennedyFasces

Graphic by Harold Arthur McNeill

1,314 words

You killed John F. Kennedy. I killed John F. Kennedy. Like Jesus Christ, the king of Camelot died for our sins – the sins of racism, militarism, and hysterical anti-Communism. Of course, just as you are allowed to say that everyone killed Jesus except the people who actually killed him (the Jews), you are allowed to say that everyone killed Kennedy except the person who actually killed him (a Communist).

The anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination is just another excuse to pathologize the American Right. Read more …

The following essay was later incorporated into Kerry Bolton’s The Psychotic Left: From Jacobin France to the Occupy Movement, available from Black House Publishing
