Recently, Gavin McInnes, our friend over at Taki’s Magazine, helpfully released a video entitled “What is the Alt Right?” In it, he does a pretty good job of describing who (or what) most of us are, dividing us into the “Alt Lite,” the “Alt Right,” and everyone else. (more…)
Sometimes you read a newspaper column that starts off so pointlessly and insipidly you can’t tell whether it’s supposed to be a parody of bad writing, or the writer just wants to introduce a humorous idea but can’t find the right hook to hang it on. This happened a few days ago (April 10) in The Washington Post, with a column by one Steven Petrow. (more…)
There Is Nothing the Alt Right Can Do about the Effeminacy of White Men
Some white men are identifying with the Alt Right as they realize that the goals and norms celebrated by our social order are underpinned by multiple deceptions, suppression of debate, anti-scientific notions about human equality, and unjust opposition to white identity (more…)
This essay was originally a talk delivered to The New York Forum on Sunday, March 26, 2017.
I had an interesting conversation the other night with an old friend of mine who has been involved in one way or another with our movement since he was in high school. We were discussing the dramatic changes that have taken place in just the last several years. (more…)
For the past couple of weeks there’s been a lot of media blather about how the novelist Jane Austen is an icon of the Alt Right. The distress this causes Leftist critics has been a thing of high comedy and low hysteria.
If you haven’t been keeping up, I review some articles immediately below. Otherwise, feel free to skip about halfway down, where I get into matters of cultural appropriation and Austen sex roles. (more…)
The following is the text of the talk that John Morgan was scheduled to deliver at Identitarian Ideas IX in Stockholm last Saturday, but was unable to due to circumstances beyond his control. As such it was intended for a primarily Swedish audience.
Today I want to talk about two schools of political thought that on the surface seem similar, but that are in fact quite different in a number of fundamental ways: namely the Alt Right and the European New Right. (more…)
Now in Audio Version! Milo-lita: More Musings on Milo
Writers like myself have to be careful when addressing famous figures currently associated with the Alt Right. While I contribute as well as I can, offering insights, ideas, and disseminating information from the sidelines, what I do pales in comparison (more…)
One of the scariest moments when playing chess is when you spot a weakness in your own position which you can only hope your opponent doesn’t see. All you can do is wait and pray that he doesn’t move his bishop there or his queen there because that would convert what is already a difficult circumstance for you into a desperate one. (more…)
It’s no secret that historically, men have harnessed intelligence, drive, pride, and anger to lead and conquer, while women have been empathetic supporting characters who provide vital biological services. For the most part, it’s a model that works, and Alt Right arguments for traditional female roles are legitimate: there’s tremendous value in having women devoted to raising many healthy, happy, stable children amidst a well-tended home. (more…)
Has the Alt Lite Embraced the [North American] New Right?
The following is reprinted from Atlantic Centurion.
Since the Alt Right tends to be a little extreme for the average pro-Trump blogger or supplements salesman, the loose collection of civic nationalists and cultural libertarians we’ve taken to calling the Alt Lite or Alt RINOs has started grasping for a label to give itself. (more…)
The Dallas Massacre, the Tyranny of Bullshit, & the Pseudo Alt-Right
“Black lives matter, Blue Lives Matter, All lives matter” — Bang! Bang! Bang! Splatter splatter splatter!”
Right now, the media — both the old desiccated mainstream version and the snarky shitposty memey new version, powered by the autistic and lonely — has a glint in its eye, a bounce in its step, and a tremulous quaver in its voice. In other words it has something to bang on about — a bit like the sniper(s) and other assorted thugs in Dallas, (more…)
The other day, I read an interesting article by David Cole over at Taki’s Magazine entitled “Prom Night Trumpster Babies.” It was the typical cleverness of Mr. Cole: starting with his anti-Semitic friends on the Alt-Right, seguing into irritating white liberal hipsters, and then to how stupid and ill-informed it is to make abortion the main reason for supporting Hillary, and then, finally, to how the Alt-Right may agree with Hillary supporters on abortion, (more…)
