Despair is a Sin

2,164 words

Okay, so the worst possible outcome has come to pass. We can all, however, take solace in the fact that it wasn’t our fault. It wasn’t Donald Trump’s fault either. He was our fighter — flawed but spirited — who had taken our nemesis Joe Biden into the later rounds and was thoroughly shellacking him when the referee suddenly held Trump in place and allowed Biden to start whaling away on him below the belt.

Michael Kellogg’s The Russian Roots of Nazism

2,922 words

Michael Kellogg
The Russian Roots of Nazism: White Émigrés and the Making of National Socialism, 1917–1945
Cambridge University Press, 2005

With the near-universal demonization of the Third Reich, historians have developed a blind spot for the genesis of German anti-Semitism. Michael Kellogg, in his 2005 work The Russian Roots of Nazism, sheds a sharp light on this topic and points our attention eastward. Read more …

The Only Honest Person in the Room

Donald Trump and Linda Lee Tarver

1,948 words

During the ongoing proceedings stemming from the fraudulent 2020 US presidential election, most of the actors involved have eschewed the topic of race. This is both good and bad. It’s good because if one side avers that race has been a decisive factor in this controversy, the other side would go ballistic and distract from the cases President Trump and his allies are bringing before the courts, the legislatures, and the American public.

Quick question: Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself?

If you say “no,” then you’re a conspiracy theorist. Or, at least, you are buying into this one conspiracy theory. And why not? Read more …

The Greatest Jewish Joke Ever Told

1,392 words

So, did you hear the one about the Jewish comedian?

The joke I am about to tell is probably the most sophisticated joke I have ever heard. It is so breathtakingly multifaceted, that it may even lose some of its humor as its punch line keeps bouncing in the squash court of your mind Read more …

Loving Tim Pool

Tim Pool

2,680 words

It’s always interesting when I find someone who shares a clean sweep of my politics but for largely different reasons. Such a person seems completely in line with my outlook, but really isn’t. Although in Tim Pool’s case, I’ll bet that he is and just doesn’t realize it yet.

For the past several months Tim Pool has been banging the Trump drum. Read more …

I Knew You When Your Eyes Were Blue

Paul Albert Besnard, The First Morning, 1881.

341 words

Your heart rate dropped precipitously
Like the bottom of my mind at its apogee
The angels were clamoring for your wings
Despite what they say, they are terrible things
Immeasurable for the dread in me
But I love you unspeakably because Read more …

Interview with Spencer J. Quinn on My Mirror Tells A Story

1,325 words

Greg Johnson: How did you come up with the idea for this book?

Spencer Quinn: I had just started writing for Counter-Currents in 2016, and I was kicking around for novel ways to get our message across. At that time most of us were on social media, and so after a few months I felt fairly certain that the idea of a Dissident Right children’s book Read more …

I Want You to Hurt Like I Do

1,340 words

With all the uncertainty surrounding the 2020 election, I’m reminded of the Randy Newman song “I Want You to Hurt Like I Do.” It’s a slow, depressing waltz about a self-centered person who’s cruel to others for no reason. And when asked why, he repeats the song title for an explanation. Read more …

Rubicon Don:
An Open Letter to President Trump

1,300 words

Dear President Trump,

There can be no circumstance under which you will not be our president for the next four years. Of course, I don’t presume to know even a fraction of what you know about the fraud the Democrats have been perpetrating against the American people these past few days. It’s outrageous. It’s criminal. You know it. I know it. The American people know it. Read more …

Music & Meaning in Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru

1,985 words

It would be easy to make Akira Kurosawa’s 1952 masterpiece Ikiru into something trite and hopeful — like an existential affirmation of life. But that wouldn’t be right. Despite the film’s title translating into English as “to live,” the film poignantly demonstrates how any real meaning life has is barely hanging by a thread. In fact, you would have to be a little crazy — or on death’s door — to act upon this meaning at all. You will be going against the grain, you see. Humanity is organized in such a way to impede meaning. Read more …

My Case for Trump

2,194 words

As we approach the 2020 elections, it seems that Dissident Right attitudes regarding President Trump range from tepid tolerance to jaded discontent. Disappointment and frustration dominate our Trump discussions, and many of us, while still technically supporting the man, plan to hold our noses quite firmly Read more …

Eran blancos y eran esclavos de Michael Hoffman

3.818 palabras

Traducido por Tradición Viva

English original here

Más o menos cada pocos años aparece un libro que destroza tus cimientos y te hace volver a cuestionar casi todo. Para mí, Culture of Critique de Kevin MacDonald y Gulag Archipelago de Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn son dos de esos libros. Ellos eran blancos y eran esclavos de Michael A. Hoffman es otro. Read more …

3,665 words

Spanish translation here

Michael Hoffman
They Were White and They Were Slaves: The Untold History of the Enslavement of Whites in Early America
Dresden, New York: Wiswell Ruffin House

Every few years or so a book comes around that rips your foundations from under you and makes you re-question pretty much everything. For me, Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago are two such books. Michael A. Hoffman’s They Were White and They Were Slaves is another. Read more …

This is Why We Had Segregation

1,901 words

With so much unrest happening in so many places these days, it’s hard to make sense of it all. America is fracturing, that much we can see. But as with an earthquake, all the tidal waves and crumbling structures don’t give us a view of the tectonic plates rumbling deep beneath the surface. But if we could see those tectonic plates, Read more …

Benjamin Ginsburg
How the Jews Defeated Hitler: Exploding the Myth of Jewish Passivity in the Face of Nazism
Lanham, Maryland: Rowman & Littlefield, 2013

Benjamin Ginsburg has his uses for the Dissident Right. As a Jewish author who sometimes airs dirty Jewish laundry for his readers, he can be placed in the same category as David Cole — Jews who offer critical assessments of their own people that justify the claims of anti-Semites, Read more …

Will the Real Jessica Krug Please Sit Down?

1,971 words

Recently, Jessica Krug, a Jewish Left-wing activist and professor at George Washington University, revealed that she had been assuming black and Latino identities for a good deal of her adult life. Krug’s confession, entitled “The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies,” is about as angst-ridden and precious as a breakup poem penned by a fourteen-year-old girl. She has admitted to the world that, although she still supports Black Power, Cancel Culture, Read more …

Stolypin vs. Bogrov:
Themes of Ethnonationalism in Solzhenitsyn’s August 1914

4,457 words

The white man stood tall and proud. He was handsome and confident, and was well-dressed in his white summer-weight frock coat. Regal, although not quite the Tsar. As Prime Minister, he was the next best thing. Despite this, Pyotr Stolypin had remarkable little security around him when he attended a play at the Kyiv Opera House on September 14th, 1911. His relationship with the Tsar had soured a bit recently due to his insistence that the local governments of the western provinces (called zemstvos) be dominated by the Russian people and not the influential Polish landowners.

In Defense of Kyle Rittenhouse

1,582 words

More shots have been fired in the trial run of the second American Civil War.

On August 25th, Kyle Rittenhouse, a seventeen-year-old citizen-militia member, was attacked at least twice by a Black Lives Matter and Antifa mob during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was armed with a rifle, and with it killed two of his attackers and injured a third. Read more …

Mandatory Altruism.

If there’s a central defining feature of education and upbringing in the West among whites, Mandatory Altruism seizes that distinction. It’s the idea that a person’s moral worth depends upon how much he (or, more importantly, she) pines for the welfare of people unlike her. Read more …

Trump Should Wargame Secession, Too

2,474 words

Earlier this month, the New York Times revealed that top-level Democrats have been wargaming possible outcomes of the November 2020 election and are considering secession if things don’t go their way. This should come as a surprise to no one. Since the epoch-changing George Floyd riots — which began in May and are still ongoing Read more …

Knut Hamsun’s Hunger

1,058 words

Oh, what strange freaks one’s thoughts are guilty of when one is starving.

— Knut Hamsun, Hunger

Back in my misspent youth, I took a seminar on creative writing. One of the instructors gave the class a piece of advice which I never heeded. She said that if you want to be good enough at writing to make a living at it, don’t be good at anything else. Read more …
