Greg Johnson is joined by Rob Freeman (Kievsky) to discuss a number of topics including:

  • Munchausen by Proxy and cat lady politics

How You Can Help Counter-Currents

Like most dissident journals of ideas, Counter-Currents depends upon donations to survive. If you want Counter-Currents to thrive, make a donation today.

If you want to send a non-tax deductible donation to Counter-Currents Publishing, you can make two different types of donations:

  • A single donation of any size.
  • A recurring donation of any size.

I want to make a special pitch today for recurring monthly donations. Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We still have not recovered from the loss of monthly donors after being deplatformed by PayPal in August of 2017, in the moral panic whipped up after Unite the Right in Charlottesville. Let’s rectify that right now. Please use the secure online form below.

You may also send check, money order, or credit card payment by mail. Just print out our donation form in Word or PDF. Our address is:

PO Box 22638
San Francisco, CA 94122

Counter-Currents also takes a variety of crypto currencies:


Our Bitcoin address is: 1ChE5DZVVZJpv8mnJ3fRrtSDrTikBh7uFL


Our Etherium address is: 0x6cB1fd85326739bABf48B80B82a4E8470F98Db7C


Our Litecoin address is: LauRgjKWtSSQPkvsjQwzcRtd9DyVwioLfu

Also, as we first announced in October of 2015, you now have two possible destinations for your donations: Counter-Currents Publishing and the Counter-Currents Foundation. The Counter-Currents Foundation is a US 501c3 educational corporation. Donations to it are deductible from US federal income taxes. The purpose of the Counter-Currents Foundation is specifically to promote scholarship and translations connected to the European New Right and allied movements. If you wish to earmark a donation to the Counter-Currents Foundation, or to discuss a particular project you would like to support, please contact me in advance at [email protected].

Please give generously!

Remember: those who fight for the Golden Age live in it today. Thank you for your loyalty and support.

      Yeah, well, I was speaking from memory.

    Really good show.

    I wasn’t actually aware of this appalling story of the Dutch girl Noa Pothaven until listening to this, and then did some more reading.

    From what I can glean, she was ‘terminally depressed’ and allowed to end her own life. Of course the snake pit of liars on the left, and sadly even some useful idiots on the right claim this is ‘fake news’ because it isn’t technically euthanasia, but there is no credible difference between that and being ok’d to publicly kill yourself slowly without intervention, and the entire thrust of the story stands. Besides, she herself sought assisted dying.

    The left’s attitude on this, is that correcting a technicality in the story, makes the story itself ‘go away’.

    She wrote a book apparently,

    It is generally assumed her attackers were non-white immigrants. So she was raped more than once, made to endure a life of hell and then killed by the disgusting system that’s done this.

    If that is case, I just wonder how much of her very serious form of depression was complicated and amplified by not being able to speak freely about the identity of her attackers, and her relationship to them. She lamented the lack of appropriate mental health care and waiting lists, which suggests there was something she wanted to say but felt she couldn’t publicly.

    This story has me so angry and sick. Because everyone is too afraid and embarrassed to tell the simple truth, people are supposed to die ?

    And it all ties in with what Greg was saying in this podcast, about these pathologically altruistic tendencies that exist within the white race, but which have been exalted and twisted to such a point, and with no counter-values that nobody can live a normal life anymore under the current system and all forms of justice have been abandoned.

    There are times I’m not ‘proud to be white’, and this is one of them.

    Whoever, whatever has done this to us, we have to do better than this. This tragedy is a new low for the white race as far I’m concerned.

      I have read up on this case as well, and the most _likely_ story is this:

      – She grew up in a neighbourhood of Arnhem that is known for the number of immigrants that live there. Mostly Turkish, mostly muslim. Arnhem itself has a muslim major.
      – She -most likely- was a child of a low income household.
      – She was raped at least once in childhood and in general seems to have had a couple of very nasty experiences.
      – She was starving herself to death (both drink & food)
      – She was probably on a kind of life support when the decision was made to accept her death wish. (Probably fed intravenously)
      – The life support was turned off, and she died soon thereafter.

      So technically not euthanasia, but very very close to it.

        I would not be surprised if she was raped by immigrants. According to Wikipedia she was first sexually assaulted at a school party at age 11 and then raped by two men in “Arnhem’s Elderveld district”. According to one paper I ran across – a paper on city planning to accommodate these invaders – Elderveld’s immigrant population was 22% at the time of the paper was compiled.

        Like “Vagrant Rightest” mentioned above, I also wouldn’t be surprised if the social taboo of naming or implicating Saint Immigrant in something like this, which she would have thoroughly internalized in her by her teen years, added to the frustration, anger and shame that resulted in her starving herself to death. I’m sure she was aware these shits for pets are untouchable.

        She describes sitting like a defendant in a criminal court hearing to assess her mental health and being placed in isolation in a tear proof dress (so she couldn’t rip it apart to hang herself) with a camera monitoring her 24/7. Lovely treatment. So caring.

        If it were me, I would hope I wouldn’t fall for the idea of treatment. If I finally got so tired of this shithole that tries to pass for the Western Civilization, with all its dysfunction and phony compassion, I’d try and be as sure of myself as possible and just do it. I wouldn’t let medical bureaucrats and other legal shits dictate my life/death and humiliate me even further. I certainly wouldn’t want some Dutch bitch atheist with a phony smile in a clerical collar hoovering over me either.

        My bet is that her mind was so awash in the pro immigrant propaganda and brainwashing that she found it impossible to reconcile the propaganda with the reality of her experience.

    What an interesting discussion. The similarity that was mentioned between pet-hoarder, codependency behavior and the Left’s severely damaging nature is a profound one. I also think that a major component of the Left’s nature is the envy of others who are more intelligent, more skilled, more moral, happier, etc. It drives them to a demonic degree.

    Some things I find unfortunate about you, Kievsky:

    1. You pretend the trans craze has more to do with single mothers than Jewish domination of the media.

    2. You seem to be very concerned about particularly female mental problems while you ignore the fact that much more common child sexual abuse is almost entirely a male problem.

    (My guess is that these factual contentions are intended to lay the groundwork for anti-mother custody policies that would allow men to take their children and give them to some other woman to raise, because of course, like you, most men do not consider childcare particularly rewarding.)

    3. You consider homeschooling your kids a burden to be minimized as much as possible, rather than a joy that you want to be as involved in as possible.
