A few words about my friend Charlie. He was like an older brother. There was no falseness about him, and that is what would get him in trouble. He could have faked it and found himself materially better off in the (((self-admiration society))) that passes for art today. But being true to himself he could not be false to others. (more…)

Remembering Charles Krafft: September 19, 1947–June 12, 2020
Painter, ceramicist, poet, and political provocateur Charles Wing Krafft was born on this day in Seattle. Charlie was a friend of Counter-Currents from the start. He appeared on Counter-Currents Radio podcasts, attended Counter-Currents retreats, spoke at Counter-Currents events, contributed artworks for the front and blurbs for the back of Counter-Currents books, and even made original artworks to commemorate H. P. Lovecraft and Francis Parker Yockey. (more…)
Remembering Francis Parker Yockey: September 18, 1917–June 16, 1960
Francis Parker Yockey was born 104 years ago today, September 18, in Chicago. He died in San Francisco on June 16, 1960, an apparent suicide. Yockey is one of America’s greatest anti-liberal thinkers and an abiding influence on the North American New Right. In honor of his birthday, I wish to draw the reader’s attention to the following works on this site.

It can be incredibly annoying when famous blacks do “based” things. On one hand, I can see the value of blacks being politically divided, and it’s fun to see white liberals go into damage control and explain how such a person is a race traitor. On the other, such incidents are catnip “hope porn” for bluepilled normie conservatives that gives them false hope that maybe multiculturalism can work after all.
But sometimes a black person does something that is so based that it goes beyond where most normie conservatives are willing to follow. (more…)
Remembering H. Keith Thompson:
September 17, 1922–March 3, 2002
He Told the Truth, Mainly
My theory on Feds is that they’re like mushrooms: Feed ’em shit and keep ’em in the dark.
–Mark Wahlberg’s character in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed)
The gracious and courtly Harald Keith Thompson — he told me to call him H. K., as we had too many Keiths around — would never put it that crudely. But when it came to disseminating (mis)information, H. K. and Marky-Mark were very much on the same page.
The wonder is that some investigators would gladly repeat his stories as gospel truth even when they knew Thompson liked to tease and deceive. (more…)
The Great Detective: The Amazing Rise and Immortal Life of Sherlock Holmes
New York: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2015
The real inference is that Sherlock Holmes really existed and that Conan Doyle never existed. If posterity only reads these latter [fan-produced] books, it will certainly suppose them to be serious. It will imagine that Sherlock Holmes was a man. But he was not; he was only a god. (more…)
White Americans are the System’s Number One Enemy
George W. Bush makes great fodder for Counter-Currents articles. Any time he makes a public pronouncement, it’s worth writing about. We last saw him condemning “White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism” as un-American back in May. Last weekend, he condemned his own voting base as equivalent to the 9/11 hijackers.
Bush spoke at a 9/11 commemoration ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania last weekend. In the speech, he repeated the lies about the “white supremacist” terror threat — without actually using the term: (more…)
California is well-known for wildfires — both in the forest, and in politics. The most recent political firestorm was the attempted recall of Governor Gavin Newsom, which rattled the derp state so hard that they dispatched the internationally-acclaimed ice cream connoisseur Joe Biden to stump on Newsom’s behalf in Long Beach in a last-minute effort to shore up his support. (more…)
Norm Macdonald knew exactly what a modern comic wasn’t supposed to say. He also knew why, in these repressive times, the only remaining funny material is what you’re not supposed to say. And no one had quite the same skill in saying the ghastliest things with such an innocent twinkle in their eye.
Macdonald, who died Tuesday after nine years of very privately dealing with acute leukemia, had the finest comic mind ever spat out by Saturday Night Live. (more…)
An enemy will always pressure you to act against your vital interests — whether by words or by force. Pope Francis proved to be the former kind — as if there were still any doubt — on Sunday, September 12 during a very brief, seven-hour visit to Hungary. He celebrated a mass before thousands of Hungarian Catholics at Budapest’s Heroes’ Square. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had a front-row seat, and later spent 40 minutes with the Pontiff, along with Hungarian President János Áder, at the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest. (more…)

Solzhenitsyn & the Right
Quakertown, Pa.: Antelope Hill
The widespread perception of Solzhenitsyn as a figure inseparable from the vanished world of the Cold War has become an obstacle to appreciation of his works. To some extent, an earlier generation of his Western admirers contributed to this misunderstanding: e.g., many Cold War conservatives were dead set against any discussion of race, which would make it impossible to apply any of Solzhenitsyn’s insights to our struggle against today’s racially-obsessed Left. (more…)
If You’re So Trad, Why Don’t You Move to Afghanistan?
Soon after the fall of Kabul, I witnessed an online exchange between a conservative and libertarian. The conservative commented that America had been weakened by her liberal stance towards degeneracy, whereas the Taliban were hardy, traditional men whose strength emanated precisely from their traditional approach to social matters.

Un preocupante dato curioso apareció por mi escritorio hoy: por primera vez en la historia de Estados Unidos, los blancos están disminuyendo no sólo como porcentaje de la población, sino también en términos de números brutos. (more…)
If you’ve ever wanted to deliver massive doses of red pills to your friends, David Duke’s My Awakening can be considered an entire bottle of them. The first edition, which is reviewed herein, has aged pretty well. Much has happened since then, of course — and little for the better. However, the basics are still relevant; what held true back then remains so now.
David Duke, in brief (more…)
What is it about guns that make people on the Left hate them so much? Why do they harbor so much contempt not for the criminals who use them on each other and on innocents, but the “law-abiding” (coded word: translate as “un-woke whites”) people who insist on owning them?
Begin with the basics: A gun is an amazing instrument of power. An infirmed, elderly man wielding a derringer can defend himself against a young, strong assailant. (more…)
Even so the clouds of my melancholy were broken up. I saw the clear sky, and regained the power to recognize the face of my physician. Accordingly, when I had lifted my eyes and fixed my gaze upon her, I beheld my nurse, Philosophy, whose halls I had frequented from my youth up.

Black Irish: African Woman Crowned Miss Ireland
Ireland is a tiny green isle with a population only slightly larger than that of the Atlanta metro area. Its population is 96% white and only 1% black, but in a crowded field of beautiful white indigenous candidates, a black woman born in South Africa with a face that could make dogs bark was recently selected to represent Éire at the 70th Miss World Pageant this December. (more…)
Last Wednesday, Curtis Yarvin, aka Mencius Moldbug, the father of the Neoreaction (NRx) movement, did a 75-minute interview with Tucker Carlson, the most popular cable TV news host in America. To be clear, this interview did not occur on Tucker’s nightly show but rather his online show, Tucker Carlson Today, which appears behind FOX’s paywall. You can watch it here. (more…)
On September 10, 2021, my wanderings carried me to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where I had the privilege of witnessing the homecoming of Lance Corporal Rylee McCollum, one of thirteen American Marines killed during the evacuation of Kabul. Rylee was 20 years old, a husband, and an expectant father. (more…)
Bread and Chocolate, a 1974 Italian film written and directed by Franco Brusati and starring Nino Manfredi, came when immigration was heating up in America. It reminded me of my own experience of the 1970s, when I was stationed in Germany and seeing foreign “guest workers” doing scut work everywhere, from restaurant help to loading trucks. In front of my barracks every morning, a doleful squad of Turks hopped off a truck to collect good, clean, municipal German trash while a burly German in a truck waited for them to do the drag and hassle before driving on.

Invade the world while inviting the world, and it may all come crashing down on you.
The 9/11 attacks were the most deadly terrorist attacks of the twenty-first century (so far). Its planners combined a wily, perverse use of airplanes, mentally ill Sunni religious fanatics, and iconic skyscrapers to kill nearly 3,000 people, most of them white. (more…)
Remembering D. H. Lawrence:
September 11, 1885–March 2, 1930
David Herbert Lawrence was born on September 11, 1885 in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England and died from tuberculosis on March 2, 1930 in Vence, France, at the age of 44.
The fourth son of a nearly-illiterate coal miner, Lawrence rose by dint of genius and hard work to become an internationally famous, often censored, and sometimes persecuted novelist, poet, essayist, and painter.
The 2021 Fundraiser & Weekend Livestreams:
Okay, Time to Get Serious
1. Our Fundraiser
Summers are notoriously slow for fundraising in our community, but interest and support generally rise after Labor Day, and the bulk of the funds raised every year come in the last few months. This year, Counter-Currents is trying to raise $200,000 this year to sustain and improve our work. Since our last update, we have had 10 donations totaling $245, for a total of 777 donations and a grand total of $95,059.37 since we started our fundraiser on March 10th. That means we are more than 45% of the way to our goal. We are deeply grateful to everyone who has helped out.

L’une des accusations les plus communes contre la Nationalisme Blanc est que c’est une idéologie de haine contre d’autres groupes. Ma réponse est : « Oui, et alors ? ». Oui, parce que la haine envers d’autres groupes est clairement un facteur dans le Nationalisme Blanc. Donc, et alors ?, parce que la haine ne disqualifie pas le Nationalisme Blanc, pour deux raisons : (1) la haine ethnique est un phénomène universel dans les sociétés racialement et culturellement diverses, (more…)
For the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Counter-Currents published a symposium (linked below) which, sadly, still remains relevant as the organized Jewish community and various white traitors, dupes, and tools agitate for yet another war with one of Israel’s enemies based upon lies and sanctimony.

“A Kinges Ransoume” for a “Croune of Paper”: Charisma in Pre-Modern Europe, Part III
A “Cony Struggling in the Net”: The Plantagenets vs. the Plantagenets
Legendary for its blizzards and blood, the fifteenth-century English conflict known as the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487) was poetic in name and savage in fighting. Medieval warfare was the most physically brutal form of battle Westerners in their long history have ever fought: huge, murderous fistfights of chaos and close combat in which few were afforded a “clean” death. (more…)
In 1992, former world champion chess player Bobby Fischer became a criminal. An American citizen, he violated US economic sanctions against the then-nation of Yugoslavia by playing a rematch there against his old rival, Boris Spassky. In a press conference before the match, he spat on the letter from the US government which demanded he not participate. Despite twenty years of inactivity, he won the match 10 games to 4, earned $3.5 million, and in typical Fischer fashion, declared that he had successfully defended the title which he had in fact vacated in 1975.

Le Nationalisme Blanc n’est pas du nationalisme pour des Blancs indifférenciés et génériques. De tels êtres n’existent pas. Chaque Blanc a une identité ethnique spécifique : une langue maternelle et une culture. Le Nationalisme Blanc est un nationalisme ethnique pour tous les peuples blancs.
Même dans les sociétés coloniales européennes, où différentes souches européennes se sont mélangées, nous n’avons pas de Blancs génériques. Si c’était vrai, il n’y aurait pas de différences entre les Américains et les Canadiens. (more…)
