It was 88 degrees in Manhattan on Saturday, May 28, 2016, when Counter-Currents launched a new venture, The New York Forum. The New York Forum is modeled on the London Forum, which is the now the most important organization in the British Nationalist scene after the collapse of the British National Party and the subsequent wave of party fatigue.

Chivington Did Nothing Wrong:
The Sand Creek Massacre—An Honest Victory
At sunrise on November 29, 1864 Colonel John Chivington (1821–1894) gave the order to his Colorado Cavalry troopers to attack. With that order, four cannons opened up on a Cheyenne Indian village, and the troopers advanced. At the end of the battle, Indian warriors, women, and children were dead, and the American whites held the field in victory.
In a time when the uniquely American and uniquely white historical figures such as Thomas Jefferson are routinely vilified for violating the social Taboos of the current Dark Age, (more…)
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, (more…)
There has long been a commonplace notion in journalism (now often repeated in blogs and social media), that Oswald Spengler declared us to be at the end of Civilization. After all, he did write The Decline of the West, didn’t he? Furthermore, Spengler’s end-phase of Civilization is Caesarism, (more…)
Donning a Popular Face:
How the Alt-Right is Winning the Meme War
The alt-right position on Donald Trump has since the get-go been to use him to further our message. This policy continues to bear fruit, especially through our memes and infamous trolling of Twitter. Our shitposts, effortposts, and textbook raid tactics have successfully and successively stricken ((((journalists)))) across the political spectrum, from conservative outlets like Breitbart and National Review to the decidedly un-conservative New York Times, with Prussian precision.

A Study in Anti–White Media Lies:
Are Right–Wing Extremists More Likely to Kill you Than Muslim Terrorists?
The problem goes deeper than leftist rags like ThinkProgress. It goes even deeper than Salon. If you want to see how deeply anti-white and anti-conservative attitudes have grown into the mainstream media today, you must look no further than Newsweek and the New York Times.
In these articles, we read that:
1. “You Are More Than 7 Times As Likely To Be Killed By A Right-Wing Extremist Than By Muslim Terrorists” (more…)
Notes on Céline’s Castle to Castle (D’un Chateau L’autre)
Today is the birthday of novelist Louis-Ferdinand Destouches (May 27, 1894–July 1, 1961), a French physician who wrote autobiographical fiction and political propaganda under the pen name Louis-Ferdinand Céline. (more…)
Last night I ushered at the local Shakespeare Theater. I had to look the part. So I bought shoe polish at the dollar store, lathered my loafers three (3) times, and glossed my footing. Meanwhile, I discovered the secret of Chinese shoe shine exporters: mix dog shit and lard, slip it in a tin, seal it with a Royal English label. (more…)
Louis-Ferdinand Céline was the pen name of French novelist, essayist, and physician Louis-Ferdinand-Auguste Destouches, who was born on this day in 1894. Céline is one of the giants of 20th-century literature. And, like Ezra Pound and so many other great writers of the last century, he was an open and unapologetic racial nationalist. (more…)
Age after age I’ve fought in wars,
I’m the diehard who’ll never die,
Adventure’s been my life’s breath,
no regrets I’ll ever sigh.
Faith and Loyalty — they’re my Laws,
Honour and Duty — they’re my Cause.
Haman was my man, when we did plan to make the Persians free,
And it was I who whispered counsel in Pharaoh’s ear,
Keep Watching the Screens!

Hollywood vs. the Aliens: The Motion Picture Industry’s Participation in UFO Disinformation
Berkeley, Cal.: Frog Limited, 1997
“Not only is there an amazing willingness in the human mind to invest credence and faith in unproven facts, but there is more evil, more readiness than ever on the part of various sophisticated groups, to use this human weakness as a tool in controlling others.” — Jacques Vallée, Revelations (more…)
Eddie the Eagle is the story of Michael “Eddie” Edwards, the English skier and ski-jumper who, by dint of character and hard work, overcame disadvantages and setbacks to set a number of records and became the first British ski jumper to compete in the Olympics in 1988. I saw this film a few weeks ago, but — rather like the film itself — there seemed to be no urgency in reviewing it: the filmmakers hadn’t waited for the release to coincide with a particular anniversary or with a comparable event.

Mongomery Bell State Park, TN
Nearly ten years had passed since my last American Renaissance Conference.
In any matchup between Batman and Superman, I side with Batman. I’ve never liked the character of Superman, because he is not a man at all. He’s basically a god. He’s not a human being who has raised himself to the pinnacles of human excellence. He’s an alien who is simply endowed with superior abilities. There is nothing heroic about Superman, because he is almost invulnerable. He faces no risks. There’s nothing he must struggle to overcome.

The Muslim Mass-Rape of British Women & Girls
Easy Meat: Inside Britain’s Grooming Gang Scandal
London: New English Review Press, 2016
One of the primary challenges a reviewer faces when reading Peter McLoughlin’s Easy Meat: Inside Britain’s Grooming Gang Scandal is remaining objective. The sex crimes that Mr. McLoughlin chronicles are so appalling, the perpetrators so unrepentant, and the cover-up so insidious and widespread, (more…)
When the West was great, our children were raised with stories and sagas, folk tales and common prayer. Today, they are raised by corporate franchises, worship SJW superheroes, and experience reality through a screen. (more…)
Translated by G. A. Malvicini
The term “intelligent stupidity” was coined by a distinguished representative of traditional thought, F. Schuon (although G. Bernanos had already used an analogous expression, l’intelligence des sots, and another Frenchman had written that “le drame de notre temps, c’est que la bêtise se soit mise à penser” [the drama of our time is that stupidity has started thinking]), to characterize a form of intellectuality that has come to dominate large sectors of modern culture, and which is strongly represented in Italy.

Greg Johnson’s New Right vs. Old Right in French Translation
An excellent index of Counter-Currents’ rising profile and influence is the growing number of foreign language translations of our books. The latest is my own book, New Right vs. Old Right, which has been translated into French under the title Le Nationalisme Blanc: Interrogations et Définitions [White Nationalism: Questions and Definitions] (Saint-Genis-Laval: Éditions Akribeia, 2016). It is a beautifully printed and bound volume.
Imagine a world where the following paragraph was true:
White people are just 2% of the population of South Africa.
And yet, a whopping 31% of South African media companies are owned by white people; 38% are founded by white people; 45% of their presidents are white people; and 47% of their chairmen are white people. (more…)
If you think of the Pre-Raphaelites you will probably be put in mind of flame-haired women in medieval dress or perhaps the depiction of a scene from a biblical or mythological story. The aesthetic appeal of such paintings seems to derive from a pre-modernist craving for something formally beautiful in its own right, without any sense of remove or cynicism. And if you consider that the tail end of the Pre-Raphaelite movement preceded the emergence of Dada by only a few years then it really does seem as though the Brotherhood marked a final statement in the history of Western art.

“As the PC crowd grinds on relentlessly, one ‘radical’ after another becomes a ‘cretinous reactionary’ the embarrassed teacher needs to justify to the outraged student, and ripe for reclamation by the alt-Right. . . . (more…)
Otra palabra para el Hinduismo, tal vez incluso más expresiva, podría ser la de “paganismo hindú”.
Los misioneros cristianos llaman “paganos” a todos aquellos que no son ni cristianos, ni musulmanes, ni judíos; es decir, todos aquellos cuya tradición religiosa nada tiene que ver con la Biblia ni la tradición judía. Aceptamos el término porque es apropiado; remarca algún tipo de similitud entre todas las religiones de credo del pasado y las del presente. (more…)

Film Inception režiséra Christophera Nolana mě ohromil, a tak jsem se rozhodl dát jeho staršímu počinu Batman začíná (2005) další šanci. Napoprvé se mi nelíbil. Vůbec. Musel jsem však být při sledování něčím rozptýlený, protože napodruhé mi přišel skvělý. Nolan odložil kýčovitý styl předchozích snímků o Batmanovi a soustředí se na vývoj postav a jejich motivace, což film Batman začíná a i jeho pokračování Temný rytíř dělá psychologicky temným a intelektuálně i emocionálně strhujícím. (more…)

Ve své recenzi Nolanova Batman začíná (Batman Begins, 2005) jsem napsal, že film dosahuje dramatického konfliktu navýšením sázek až do krajnosti: zničení moderního světa (ztělesněného Gotham City) tradicionalistickou Ligou stínů vs. jeho zachování a „progresivní“ vylepšení, o něž usiluje Batman.
Trump is Normal, the Republican Party is Not
From the end of the American Civil War until the First World War, and then again until the FDR administration, an alliance of Northern industrial and business interests dominated the federal government of the United States through the vehicle of the Republican party, and left their stamp on American politics. The only Democrats who held the office of president were Andrew Johnson, Grover Cleveland, and Woodrow Wilson, compared to 11 Republicans. (more…)
The Alt-Right is the Only Way to Stop the Islamification of the West
A meme is going around the internet that highlights the points on which the Alt-Right apparently agrees with Radical Islam. Of course, it is possible to quibble with several of these – e.g. the Alt Right actually believes in Israel as a solution to the Jewish question – but there is a broad truth to the general assertion that makes the meme effective.

“Even apart from the value of such claims as ‘there is a categorical imperative in us,’ one can still always ask: what does such a claim tell us about the man who makes it?” — Nietzsche (Beyond Good and Evil, Section 187)
I have been reflecting of late on the concept of truth, both as a philosophical concept and as a value. Growing up, I always took the notion of truth completely for granted. (more…)
Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola was born on May 19, 1898 in Rome. Along with René Guénon, Evola is one of the writers who has most influenced the metapolitical outlook and project of Counter-Currents, which is reflected in the fact that Evola is one of the most-tagged writers on this website. In commemoration of his birthday, I wish to draw your attention to the following resources.
Counter-Currents has published the following writings of Evola’s: (more…)
