College: No Place for White Males
In both the United States and England, white males are seeing their college enrollment numbers drop while women and racial minorities are making gains. (more…)

Among the many problems in the Inept American War Machine is Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley. It was recently revealed in a book by Bob Woodward, Peril, that Milley had contacted senior military officials in China during the final months of the Trump administration to assure them that he would warn them should then-President Donald Trump order a sudden attack. Furthermore, Milley had more than one conversation with the Chinese on this matter. This all took place at a time of increasing tensions between the United States and China. (more…)
September 9 was the centenary of the death of Virginia Rappe at age 26.
Virginia Rappe was an actress, model, and probably a prostitute. She appeared in a few early silent films, but never became a star. (more…)
A few words about my friend Charlie. He was like an older brother. There was no falseness about him, and that is what would get him in trouble. He could have faked it and found himself materially better off in the (((self-admiration society))) that passes for art today. But being true to himself he could not be false to others. (more…)
Painter, ceramicist, poet, and political provocateur Charles Wing Krafft was born on this day in Seattle. Charlie was a friend of Counter-Currents from the start. He appeared on Counter-Currents Radio podcasts, attended Counter-Currents retreats, spoke at Counter-Currents events, contributed artworks for the front and blurbs for the back of Counter-Currents books, and even made original artworks to commemorate H. P. Lovecraft and Francis Parker Yockey. (more…)
Francis Parker Yockey was born 104 years ago today, September 18, in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right. In honor of his birthday, I wish to draw the reader’s attention to the following works on this site.
1. Our Weekend Livestreams
Counter-Currents Radio and The Writers’ Bloc are switching days. Henceforth:
On Saturday, September 18th, Greg Johnson will be joined by Jim Goad and Thomas Steuben to discuss current events — including the decline of the US military, Mark Milley’s treason, the California recall, and the late, great Norm MacDonald — (more…)
It can be incredibly annoying when famous blacks do “based” things. On one hand, I can see the value of blacks being politically divided, and it’s fun to see white liberals go into damage control and explain how such a person is a race traitor. On the other, such incidents are catnip “hope porn” for bluepilled normie conservatives that gives them false hope that maybe multiculturalism can work after all.
But sometimes a black person does something that is so based that it goes beyond where most normie conservatives are willing to follow. (more…)
My theory on Feds is that they’re like mushrooms: Feed ’em shit and keep ’em in the dark.
–Mark Wahlberg’s character in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed)
The gracious and courtly Harald Keith Thompson — he told me to call him H. K., as we had too many Keiths around — would never put it that crudely. But when it came to disseminating (mis)information, H. K. and Marky-Mark were very much on the same page.
The wonder is that some investigators would gladly repeat his stories as gospel truth even when they knew Thompson liked to tease and deceive. (more…)
The Great Detective: The Amazing Rise and Immortal Life of Sherlock Holmes
New York: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015
The real inference is that Sherlock Holmes really existed and that Conan Doyle never existed. If posterity only reads these latter [fan-produced] books, it will certainly suppose them to be serious. It will imagine that Sherlock Holmes was a man. But he was not; he was only a god. (more…)
George W. Bush makes great fodder for Counter-Currents articles. Any time he makes a public pronouncement, it’s worth writing about. We last saw him condemning “White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism” as un-American back in May. Last weekend, he condemned his own voting base as equivalent to the 9/11 hijackers.
Bush spoke at a 9/11 commemoration ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania last weekend. In the speech, he repeated the lies about the “white supremacist” terror threat — without actually using the term: (more…)
California is well-known for wildfires — both in the forest, and in politics. The most recent political firestorm was the attempted recall of Governor Gavin Newsom, which rattled the derp state so hard that they dispatched the internationally-acclaimed ice cream connoisseur Joe Biden to stump on Newsom’s behalf in Long Beach in a last-minute effort to shore up his support. (more…)
Norm Macdonald knew exactly what a modern comic wasn’t supposed to say. He also knew why, in these repressive times, the only remaining funny material is what you’re not supposed to say. And no one had quite the same skill in saying the ghastliest things with such an innocent twinkle in their eye.
Macdonald, who died Tuesday after nine years of very privately dealing with acute leukemia, had the finest comic mind ever spat out by Saturday Night Live. (more…)
An enemy will always pressure you to act against your vital interests — whether by words or by force. Pope Francis proved to be the former kind — as if there were still any doubt — on Sunday, September 12 during a very brief, seven-hour visit to Hungary. He celebrated a mass before thousands of Hungarian Catholics at Budapest’s Heroes’ Square. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had a front-row seat, and later spent 40 minutes with the Pontiff, along with Hungarian President János Áder, at the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest. (more…)

Solzhenitsyn & the Right
Quakertown, Pa.: Antelope Hill
The widespread perception of Solzhenitsyn as a figure inseparable from the vanished world of the Cold War has become an obstacle to appreciation of his works. To some extent, an earlier generation of his Western admirers contributed to this misunderstanding: e.g., many Cold War conservatives were dead set against any discussion of race, which would make it impossible to apply any of Solzhenitsyn’s insights to our struggle against today’s racially-obsessed Left. (more…)
Soon after the fall of Kabul, I witnessed an online exchange between a conservative and libertarian. The conservative commented that America had been weakened by her liberal stance towards degeneracy, whereas the Taliban were hardy, traditional men whose strength emanated precisely from their traditional approach to social matters. (more…)
The latest convocation of the Counter-Currents Brain Trust is now available for online listening and downloading. Greg Johnson was joined by two Counter-Currents writers, Mark Gullick and Stephen Paul Foster. Since all three have doctorates in philosophy, it was an opportunity to discuss some really DEEP QUESTIONS. (more…)
Saturday’s installment of the new and improved Writers’ Bloc, hosted by Nick Jeelvy, is now available for listening and download. His guest is Counter-Currents’ own regular writer, Kathryn S. They focus on the ante-bellum Southern writer George Fitzhugh’s classic defense of slavery, Sociology for the South. Topics discussed include:
00:03:00 George Fitzhugh’s style
00:06:00 Is slavery good? (more…)
If you’ve ever wanted to deliver massive doses of red pills to your friends, David Duke’s My Awakening can be considered an entire bottle of them. The first edition, which is reviewed herein, has aged pretty well. Much has happened since then, of course — and little for the better. However, the basics are still relevant; what held true back then remains so now.
David Duke, in brief (more…)
What is it about guns that make people on the Left hate them so much? Why do they harbor so much contempt not for the criminals who use them on each other and on innocents, but the “law-abiding” (coded word: translate as “un-woke whites”) people who insist on owning them?
Begin with the basics: A gun is an amazing instrument of power. An infirmed, elderly man wielding a derringer can defend himself against a young, strong assailant. (more…)
Even so the clouds of my melancholy were broken up. I saw the clear sky, and regained the power to recognize the face of my physician. Accordingly, when I had lifted my eyes and fixed my gaze upon her, I beheld my nurse, Philosophy, whose halls I had frequented from my youth up.
— Boethius, The Consolation of Philosophy (more…)
Black Irish: African Woman Crowned Miss Ireland
Ireland is a tiny green isle with a population only slightly larger than that of the Atlanta metro area. Its population is 96% white and only 1% black, but in a crowded field of beautiful white indigenous candidates, a black woman born in South Africa with a face that could make dogs bark was recently selected to represent Éire at the 70th Miss World Pageant this December. (more…)
Last Wednesday, Curtis Yarvin, aka Mencius Moldbug, the father of the Neoreaction (NRx) movement, did a 75-minute interview with Tucker Carlson, the most popular cable TV news host in America. To be clear, this interview did not occur on Tucker’s nightly show but rather his online show, Tucker Carlson Today, which appears behind FOX’s paywall. You can watch it here. (more…)
On September 10, 2021, my wanderings carried me to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where I had the privilege of witnessing the homecoming of Lance Corporal Rylee McCollum, one of thirteen American Marines killed during the evacuation of Kabul. Rylee was 20 years old, a husband, and an expectant father. (more…)
Bread and Chocolate, a 1974 Italian film written and directed by Franco Brusati and starring Nino Manfredi, came when immigration was heating up in America. It reminded me of my own experience of the 1970s, when I was stationed in Germany and seeing foreign “guest workers” doing scut work everywhere, from restaurant help to loading trucks. In front of my barracks every morning, a doleful squad of Turks hopped off a truck to collect good, clean, municipal German trash while a burly German in a truck waited for them to do the drag and hassle before driving on. (more…)
Invade the world while inviting the world, and it may all come crashing down on you.
The 9/11 attacks were the most deadly terrorist attacks of the twenty-first century (so far). Its planners combined a wily, perverse use of airplanes, mentally ill Sunni religious fanatics, and iconic skyscrapers to kill nearly 3,000 people, most of them white. (more…)
David Herbert Lawrence was born on September 11, 1885 in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England and died from tuberculosis on March 2, 1930 in Vence, France, at the age of 44.
The fourth son of a nearly-illiterate coal miner, Lawrence rose by dint of genius and hard work to become an internationally famous, often censored, and sometimes persecuted novelist, poet, essayist, and painter.
1. Our Fundraiser
Summers are notoriously slow for fundraising in our community, but interest and support generally rise after Labor Day, and the bulk of the funds raised every year come in the last few months. This year, Counter-Currents is trying to raise $200,000 this year to sustain and improve our work. Since our last update, we have had 10 donations totaling $245, for a total of 777 donations and a grand total of $95,059.37 since we started our fundraiser on March 10th. That means we are more than 45% of the way to our goal. We are deeply grateful to everyone who has helped out.
For the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Counter-Currents published a symposium (linked below) which, sadly, still remains relevant as the organized Jewish community and various white traitors, dupes, and tools agitate for yet another war with one of Israel’s enemies based upon lies and sanctimony.

A “Cony Struggling in the Net”: The Plantagenets vs. the Plantagenets
Legendary for its blizzards and blood, the fifteenth-century English conflict known as the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487) was poetic in name and savage in fighting. Medieval warfare was the most physically brutal form of battle Westerners in their long history have ever fought: huge, murderous fistfights of chaos and close combat in which few were afforded a “clean” death. (more…)
In 1992, former world champion chess player Bobby Fischer became a criminal. An American citizen, he violated US economic sanctions against the then-nation of Yugoslavia by playing a rematch there against his old rival, Boris Spassky. In a press conference before the match, he spat on the letter from the US government which demanded he not participate. Despite twenty years of inactivity, he won the match 10 games to 4, earned $3.5 million, and in typical Fischer fashion, declared that he had successfully defended the title which he had in fact vacated in 1975. (more…)
Richard Wagner on Tragedy, Christianity, and the State: Three Essays, Second Edition
Melbourne: Manticore, 2020
“I am the most German being. I am the German spirit.” — Richard Wagner
Counter-Currents readers will welcome another contribution from Alexander Jacob. These essays make a useful companion, or counterpoint (sit venia verbo!), to Collin Cleary’s Wagner’s Ring & the Germanic Tradition. (more…)
Greg Johnson is joined by Martin Lichtmesz and F. Roger Devlin to discuss Lichtmesz’s book Ethnopluralismus: Kritik und Verteidigung (Ethnopuluralism: Critique and Defense). Topics include:
The corner of Kensington and Allegheny Avenues — known colloquially as “K&A” — is the Hollywood and Vine of poor-white Philadelphia. K&A is also a major subway stop on the Market-Frankford subway line that runs eastward from K&A all the way up into Northeast Philly, also known (for reasons that should be obvious) as “The Great White Northeast.” An elevated line throughout that part of town, the train runs westward and then tunnels underground into Center City — they don’t call it “Downtown” in Philly — and then back above ground out past mostly black West Philly. (more…)
The Supreme Court upheld Texas’ “Heartbeat” abortion law last week, setting off hysteria on the Left and exhilaration on the mainstream Right. It’s one of the major achievements of the pro-life movement and it could set up the end of Roe v. Wade. This does not end abortion in America, but it does allow individual states to effectively ban it. (more…)
As part of an effort to better understand, and if possible, return to tradition, I’ve been plumbing the depths of folk tales, reading accounts of oral traditions, stories, legends, myths, sayings, epic songs, and other linguistic cultural artifacts of times past. One significant understanding I reached in my explorations is that pre-modern man placed a great value on luck as a factor in success or failure. Contrasting that is the modern view that chance plays a lesser role in the world. But what if the old folks had it right? (more…)
Part 1 of 3 (Part 2 here)
Dual Charismatic Cycles of the West
“Heed my words all classes of men, you greater and lesser children of Heimdall”: When all “the gods went to their thrones, those holy, holy gods,” they came to a decision. They would make leaders from “Ymir’s blood and his rotting limbs.” (more…)
The Writers’ Bloc is back, with a new name, new lineup, and a new home at Counter-Currents. The Writers Block (with a “k”) was started by Fullmoon Ancestry and Nicholas Jeelvy on Saturday nights on DLive. Fullmoon went on to other projects, so the show ended. Nick decided to revive it, and Greg Johnson invited him to do so at Counter-Currents. The new Writers’ Bloc will be a showcase for Counter-Currents‘ outstanding roster of writers. For the inaugural episode, Nick invited Greg Johnson to join him. Topics discussed include: (more…)
As recent American political events have demonstrated, the modern political Left can no longer be seen as making any legitimate contribution to philosophy, culture, politics, society, and so on. (more…)
When Westerners complain about cousin marriage among Muslims, they invariably point to the health risks. They don’t emphasize that numerous cultures throughout history have mandated their children to wed close relatives because it strengthens ingroup loyalty and ensures that every member in the group “stays in line” and adheres to their traditions. They don’t understand that Muslims are healthily in tune with their ingroup identities, not the benefits of “humanity.” (more…)
Recently I had dinner with an Englishman who could have stood in as “a good man from the Shire” sort of character on an episode of PBS’ Masterpiece Theater. I raised the question of Brexit: good or bad? His response was very negative. He then went on to describe the many problems of Britain’s exit from the European Union. (more…)
Black Crowd in Chicago Laughs and Twerks as White Men are Beaten Unconscious
American blacks these days are full of murder and rhythm — they seem to love attacking white people and then dancing. I wrote last week about a black man shooting a white man dead in Miami Beach and then dancing, as well as a black woman in the Bronx shoving a white toddler to the ground and then merrily mincing away. (more…)
Fascinating drama can always emerge when characters argue the truth against each other. Each has something that is undeniably correct in their position, but since neither wishes to back down, it’s up to the audience to figure out whose position is more correct in the long run. Kevin Beary has written three one-act plays which deal with the African question, and uses dialectic with expert precision. (more…)
The question of elites is one of the most important political issues of our time; perhaps the most important question of all. Whereas in the nineteenth century the main line of social conflict was between businessmen and their employees (the bourgeoisie versus the working class), today it is between the elite and the various lower classes. (more…)
Will future historians look back at 2020 and proclaim it the year America died? Maybe. But that’s for future historians to decide. My thesis is different. For me, and for many other patriotic white Americans, 2020 definitely felt like the year America died.
Yes, the corpse of America is still shambling around on the world stage. In this respect, the presidency of senile Joe Biden and the speakership of taxidermized ghoul Nancy Pelosi are perfect symbolism. But the spirit of America has fled. Something different, something alien is animating America’s corpse. (more…)
Brad Bird is the director of three classic animated films: The Iron Giant (1999), The Incredibles (2004), and Ratatouille (2007), as well as the blockbuster sequel The Incredibles 2 (2018). The Incredibles is a superhero film that also pays affectionate homage to the spy movies of the 1960s, especially classic Bond. (more…)
The following is Kerry Bolton’s introduction to the upcoming new edition of Francis Parker Yockey’s The Enemy of Europe, to be published by Centennial Edition.
The Second World War ended with Europe under the domination of two extra-European powers: the United States and Soviet Russia. Most of the post-war far Right regarded America as the lesser of two evils and sided with Washington in the newly-emerging Cold War. In The Enemy of Europe, Francis Parker Yockey rejected this consensus and argued instead that Europe’s identity and destiny were endangered far more by American than Russian domination. (more…)
Riot-wise, it’s been a peaceful summer, at least compared to last year. But since nothing has gotten better since last year, I’ve started to wonder why that is.
The economy hasn’t improved. The country just lost a twenty-year war. The people who believe that anti-black racism is a problem still cling to that delusion with passionate intensity. (more…)
I am, at the Federal level, libertarian;
at the state level, Republican;
at the local level, Democrat;
and at the family and friends level, a socialist.
If that saying doesn’t convince you of the fatuousness of left vs. right labels, nothing will.
— Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Skin in the Game (more…)
The ongoing dumpster fire of the Afghanistan withdrawal raises an interesting question: How did the military, formerly one of the most respected of American institutions, degenerate not only into a liberal arts college, but a dysfunctional one at that? (more…)
It’s a story as old as time: A leading figure in a “white supremacist terror” group turned out to be a federal informant. This time it was Atomwaffen. Joshua Caleb Sutter was exposed in court records in a case dealing with an indicted Atomwaffen leader. Federal authorities, without naming Sutter, admitted to paying him over $140,000 since 2003 for his work as a confidential informant. They had paid him over $80,000 since 2018, when he took over leadership of the group
Sutter makes for an ideal informant due to his long history in the movement. His father was a preacher associated with Aryan Nations who brought his son into the fold. Sutter the Younger was arrested in 2003 on a weapons charge and served a short stint in prison. This was the start of his cooperation with the federal government. (more…)
A newly-released statistical study by Charles Gaudreault published in a peer-reviewed journal has concluded that the ethnic French Canadians will become a minority by the year 2042 in their Québec homeland. (more…)
On this episode of Counter-Currents Radio, Greg Johnson is joined by Mike from Imperium Press and our own Nicholas Jeelvy to discuss the blowup between C. A. Bond and Bronze Age Pervert (or his followers). This is not just a drama stream, however, because there are interesting lessons to be learned. Imperium Press also took an impressively principled stand against doxing. Topics discussed include:
00:02:30 Background to the conflict
00:09:00 Bronze Age Pervert’s alleged dissertation
00:15:00 The role of money in society
H. G. Wells is best known for being one of the founding fathers of science fiction, along with his French counterpart Jules Verne. While he was a wordsmith by trade, he had a strong influence on the medium of film almost from the beginning. (more…)
There’s a seemingly benign channel on cable TV that merely displays pretty scenery and gives the time and temperature. There are also informative little blurbs appearing intermittently at the bottom of the screen, generally related to pop culture. I turned it on to check the temperature outside only to be assailed by an angry missive about so-and-so soon to be starring in a movie with the loaded title, The United States vs. Billie Holiday.
I just wanted to know if I needed to wear a sweater. (more…)
“And there was the Odyssey, whose vigorously sonorous, measured numbers gave an intimation of a vanished, clearly articulated and joyous life.” – Hermann Hesse
“An easily forgotten fact of cultural history [is] the radical, white-to-black, up-and-then-down variations in the periodic estimates of men and works. . . . To the Renaissance, Cicero was the supreme man of letters; today he has been banished even from the classroom.“ — Jacques Barzun (more…)
Capitol Storm Killer Finally Revealed to Be Bantu-American Cop
These days in African America, the moment any black person dies within a hundred feet of a white cop, both the dead black person and the white cop become celebrities in the twinkling of an eye. The white cop is identified by name, his or her picture is blasted on Jumbotrons from coast to coast, and it’s likely that the cop’s home address will be leaked online before the black corpse has had time to stiffen. (more…)
French original here
I had never heard of Estelle Redpill until last week. Browsing through Antifa Twitter, I found someone pointing and sputtering at an article in the Financial Times about the so-called “fachosphere,” which the Times assures me is French shorthand for “fascist sphere” — a sort of French Alt Right. The Financial Times selected 25-year-old Estelle Rodriguez, better known by her nom de guerre Estelle Redpill, to be the face of the “fachosphere” — and a memorable face it is. (more…)
“Ain’t no time to wonder why, whoopee we’re all gonna die.”

1. Two Must-See Weekend Livestreams
Our regular Sunday livestream will be preempted on Sunday, August 29th so Greg Johnson can discuss his book White Identity Politics on the Patriotic Alternative Book Club at noon PST, 3 pm EST, 8 pm UK time, & 9 pm CET — streaming on DLive, Odysee, and Radio Albion. You can also tune in on the CC DLive channel. (more…)
Biden’s address after the double suicide attack by ISIS-Khorasan (a probable CIA psyop asset) in Kabul was interesting for a lot of reasons. Despite being surprisingly lucid, he let slip that he had been instructed as to which journalists to call on. (more…)
