    Holy shit this is the white pill I needed. I wll give both of you guys props for putting it behind you; you’re both fantastic writers and there are so few dissident voices. Two of my favourite minds breaking bread . This is good for all of us. Really glad to hear this.
    Jim , I know you dislike me but grouphug was genius and I wish you a ton of success in your next step. Let’s Rodney King the shit outta 2020 (the cant we all get along part , not the getting the shit beaten out of us by the cops/LA riots part). I tip my hat to both of you and thank you for all you do.

    I’ve always appreciated Jim’s unwavering sincerity, humor and sharp yet brash intellect.

    I am glad he is now joined with CC.

    Greg, your efforts are greatly appreciated.

    This was a terrific conversation. Both Counter-Currents and Mr. Goad are going to gain a lot of new fans in the coming weeks.

    Glad to hear that Goad is now part of the C-C team.
    It’s a sign of the changing times that if, 20 years ago, I’d come across Jim Goad’s writings I would have thought: now this Mr Goad is making some excellent points. It’s a shame he has to spoil his case by using childish racist and sexist slurs. Today I find his work hilarious.
    So what’s changed? The difference is that we’re now living in a world where people take offence at such trite issues : someone once wore blackface, misspoke and said “colored people”, wants the next James Bond played by a white actor, said “niggardly”, . . .
    I now think: Blimey! If the woke are going to be so precious, so prissy, so petty then how would they react if I said THIS! Jim Goad says what we all want to say.
    Re The N-Word: Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” was originally called “Ten Little Niggers” and was set on Nigger Island. It’s a crying shame that the first film version (René Clair, 1945) didn’t retain that wording as it would now be a camp classic.

    Goad & Jeelvy are a great 1-2 punch. Don’t get me wrong, I love the many various & often erudite contributors to Counter-Currents, but it’s nice to be slapped around over the morning coffee.

    Just like the last talk with Mr. Goad, I sat through this one without stopping. Psyched that he is joining the crew!

    Exciting development. I wonder if the recent urban riots and blm shenanigans have shifted Jim Goad’s worldview more in our direction?

    The news of A. Wyatt Mann’s outreach is great. CC can definitely use a more visual aspect.

    Glad you’ve escaped a bad female boss.

    Jim Goad is one of the few authors who is quotable.

    I am very happy to see Jim Goad will be writing at Counter Currents. Please also bring Chateau aboard as well. He is greatly missed.

    Who’s the “artiste” guy I keep hearing about in the podcast? How do you spell it?

      Chateau Heartiste, used to be really big in the “manosphere,” but was always above it. He is kind of silent now.

        Scott, thanks for the link to CH. The man has great insight and a way with words. Every post always gave me a good laugh and left me much better informed about the ways of women and the world in general.

    I well remember the Taki’s Mag Comments Section in its heyday. I suspect it had originally been intended as a ‘Letters to the Editor’ sort of place where the articles could be critiqued or complimented, but it never was this at all. The articles were for the most part rudely ignored and some used the CS as a personal blog or a chat room. Towards the end it was a shit house of habarats, feds, snitches, moles, and rats. Some thought the plug was pulled because of the jewnaming; others because TM didn’t want the trouble and expense of moderating.
    In any case, I did opt for the ads free experience in order to comment on the articles from time to time. I’ll cancel this now and send the moolah (Taki’s word) to CC.

      Interesting to know about the comments on Takimag. I’ve been reading Takimag religiously for about 3, 4 years now. So I missed out on the comments. Would have been nice to have conversed with like minded Taki readers as well the authors but from what you said the comment section there wasn’t so swell. I tried emailing David Cole from the email in the RSS feed, whatever the hell that is, but he either didn’t reply or it’s a fake meial. I pretty much just read Takimag for Goad and Cole. Nice to hear Goad’s taking it well, “moving on to greener pastures.” This is a big loss for Taki and shame on them for not paying Goad three months of that is in fact true.

    Good to see Jim Goad on here. There’s a noticeable difference in writing style in his first two pieces here. His writing was great at Taki’s, but his range of topics did seem to tread the same ground repeatedly. And now I know why.
