There’s that old saying that politics is showbiz for ugly people. If that’s true, I think it is fair to say that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has “gone Hollywood.” (more…)

There has been a lot of talk lately about the mainstreaming of conspiracy theories. They are catching on among people who are not the usual conspiracy theory “type”: eccentric, slightly autistic, and with an overactive imagination. Now, conspiracy theories are beginning to catch on with normies and neurotypicals.
In three years, QAnon has gone from an obscure message board phenomenon to an unstoppable cultural juggernaut. (more…)
Well, it looks like the honeymoon is over for the Dirtbag Left. And as Counter-Currents’ official Dirtbag Left correspondent, I’m here to tell you about it. (more…)
The Dark Side of QAnon Part Two: The Friends We Made Along the Way
The Dark Side of QAnon Part One: Kids in the Lion’s Cage
I’ve been thinking about QAnon a lot lately.
When I think of QAnon, I’m mostly just annoyed. From the right angle, the QAnon movement looks like a Ferrari on cinder blocks. A movement as large, as passionate, and with the kind of missionary zeal of QAnon could do some serious damage to the system if they knew what the hell they were doing and if they understood what the hell they were up against.

“The groyper thing is going to burn out fairly soon (don’t believe me? Let’s talk again next fall).”
— David Cole, November 26, 2019
When I heard about the upcoming Million MAGA March, I was torn as to whether I wanted to go. I generally despise traveling. I knew I should go but I really, really didn’t want to. And yet, something told me that if I didn’t go, I would regret it. (more…)
I don’t want to be like some passive artist for people to go, “Oh, what do you think of Tom Macdonald,” and they’re like, “You can take him or leave him.” I don’t want that. I want people to go either, “Yo, I love that guy,” or “Yo, I f*****g hate that guy.” I want an emotional response to this stuff.

Life at the End of History: Against Nineties Nostalgia
To understand the man you have to know what was happening in the world when he was twenty.
— Napoleon Bonaparte
I grew up in the final years of the Cold War. If you aren’t old enough to remember the Cold War, let me tell you that it was a trip.
I’m not going to claim that I have been totally 1488 from day one or that I came goose-stepping out of the womb. But I think I have always been instinctively and intuitively a race realist. Or at least, I have been since around the age of 8. The first black person I ever met was this kid named Scooter when I was in kindergarten. This would have been in the early 80s. (more…)

The Bernie Bro Question

The Bernie Bro Question, Part Three: Cringe Encounters of the Third Position
The Bernie Bro Question, Part 2: Rebels Without a Candidate
Some in the Dissident Right have pined for and predicted a mass defection from the materialist Left to the Dissident Right.
Of course, people have been talking about a theoretical Bernie Bro-to-Dissident Right pipeline since at least 2016, if not earlier. (more…)
Bernie Sanders has, at last, put his supporters out of their misery by dropping out of the 2020 Democratic primaries. He will not be the president. He will not be the nominee. There will be no Christmas miracle at the convention. It’s Trump vs Biden in November. (more…)
Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 3: Could Bernie Split the American Left?
The ideal 2020 election scenario is for Bernie Sanders to lose the Democratic primary race, and for it to be black people’s fault. (more…)
Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 2: Is Capitalism the Real Racist?
There are reasons why the neoliberal establishment hates Bernie Sanders so much, and it’s not just because he’s a threat to their donors’ stock portfolios. Class-based material Marxism — once a pillar of Leftist thought — is not only incompatible with but also heretical to the neoliberal worldview and agenda. (more…)
Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 1: Here’s How Bernie Could Still Win!
By now, the Groyper War is old news, and I’m just now getting around to writing about it. But there are several reasons for that.
First of all, if you want to make some groyper-related content, you have to be pretty quick on the draw (more…)
Imitation of Life & an Imitation of Imitation of Life
We live an age where no one wants to be white if they can help it. That’s why you have honkies like Robert “Beto” O’Rourke pretending be Hispanic, Shaun King pretending to be black, and Elizabeth Warren pretending to be Native American. But it was not so long ago when the opposite was true, and it was non-whites who, if possible, tried to pass themselves off as whites. Imitation of Life is a movie about the latter. (more…)

What to do about Tommy Robinson has long been a moral quandary for the Dissident Right. The purist position was, “No, the guy is a narcissist conman controlled by Zionist Jews” – which no one on our side really disputes.
You would think that after more than thirty-five years in the public eye that there would be no more surprises left. You would think that now that he’s turning 60, all the youthful rebellion would be long gone. And you would think that after the last two months of the media losing their collective marbles over Moz’s red-pilled statements and his support for the Right-wing populist party For Britain, that Morrissey would be ready to lay low for a while.
Debunking Kliph Nesteroff’s Lies About the Father of Stand-Up
This article is the opposite of the article that I originally set out to write, which was about Frank Fay, the Nazi-sympathizing fascist vaudevillian who invented stand-up comedy. I mean, it says right there on Frank Fay’s Wikipedia page that “[i]n January 1946, just months after Nazi Germany had been defeated, a rally of 10,000 white supremacists gathered at Madison Square Garden for a pro-fascist event called ‘The Friends of Frank Fay’.” That sounds like a good topic for a White Nationalist Website, right? “Hey, kids! Did you know that stand-up comedy was invented by a fascist?”

Morrissey Strikes Back:
The Pin is Mightier than the Sword
“I straighten up, and my position is one of hope. The march backwards is over, and life has begun again.” — Morrissey
A couple weeks ago, I wrote an article about the iconic ex-Smiths singer and champion of the white race Morrissey and his drift to the Right and support of Anne-Marie Waters and her party For Britain. (more…)
One of the most satisfying aspects of Morrissey’s recent drift into the populist nativist Right is the absolute butthurt from his shitlib fans. It’s glorious. They feel so betrayed. (more…)
Carl Benjamin, aka Sargon of Akkad, is a guy who everyone loves to hate. Or rather, everyone would hate Sargon of Akkad if they could. (more…)
On the Dissident Right, it can sometimes appear that we exist in a constant state of stalemate – that nothing is happening and that we are all just wasting our time. Progress and gains are being made, but slowly and imperceptibly – unless you know what to look for.
The blue-pilled are getting a tiny bit more purple every day. Things that were only discussed on the chans and message boards a few years ago are now out in the open. (more…)
I fought in the Optics Wars. I was in there, man. I was in those 504-um mega-threads alongside Ricky Vaughn, Weev, and Andrew Anglin, debating the primary issue of the day (optics) against the members of the Traditional Workers Party, their malevolent wignat allies, and the odd well-meaning “us pro-whites have to stick together no matter what” useful idiot.
