Cricket. Not as homely as “mom and apple pie,” but, to the Englishman, just as evocative of home. If American readers don’t know the game, I won’t attempt to explain more than to say it’s the one that is played by what look like hospital interns using bookshelves as bats who attempt to swat a baseball-sized, rock-hard, red leather ball hurled by a bowler (more…)
Four years ago, Joe Rogan had a very instructive conversation with Jordan Peterson and Bret Weinstein about Adolf Hitler. Most have probably heard of this last person, as well as the first two. The third, Weinstein, is an evolutionary biologist who attained notoriety in 2017 when he stood up to Evergreen State College in Washington State when they attempted to kick white students off campus for a day.

Live by the Woke, Die by the Woke: The Cancellation of Socialism Done Left
By the time I heard about the cancelation of the BreadTuber known as Socialism Done Left, the controversy was already a few days old. I had never heard of the guy, but when I stumbled upon the Vice article “Leaked Racist Messages Shows “Leftist” Youtuber Isn’t” written by affirmative action hire Gita Jackson, I initially wanted to defend him.

The Ritual Denazification of Teen Vogue
But now the venerable online publication has been rocked by accusations of racism that, amusingly, extend to those who have gleefully accused others at the magazine of racism. (more…)
What Culture Are Conservatives Trying To Protect From “Cancel Culture”?

Greg Johnson: All right, let’s begin our final session. This session is called “Grace Under Pressure.” It’s a very practical session. It’s a chance for people who have experience to pass on their experience to the rest of us. (more…)
Anyone with a decent education knows that the Iliad and Odyssey concern the fall of Troy and the struggle of Odysseus against a series of eldritch terrors on his voyage homeward. The timeless appeal is clear; the style is quite gripping, which especially comes out if one has a good translation or happens to know Greek. (more…)
If I had known George Floyd, I don’t think I would have liked him.
There’s a good chance he wouldn’t have liked me, either, and if you dislike me merely for saying I would have disliked him, I’ll take an immediate dislike to you, too.
What bothers me even more than you and George Floyd, though, is that it seems as if no one is ever going to SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT GEORGE FLOYD. (more…)
To be young and white in America right now is to walk through life with a black cloud hovering over your head with every word you utter and every step you take.
One major cultural shift over the past generation is that except for a few isolated hills and hollers in Appalachia and the Ozarks, there is effectively no such thing as “poor white culture” anymore. (more…)
Alexander Hamilton is arguably the most popular Founding Father of our era — and it’s all thanks to one incredibly cringe hip-hop musical.
Hamilton first premiered in 2015 and has been a popular sensation ever since. Its tickets go for astronomical prices and its soundtrack sold millions of copies. (more…)
Morris V. de Camp pondered the prospects of Civil War 2.0 in the pages of Counter-Currents this week, comparing our current situation to the tumultuous 1860s. While we’re experiencing high levels of social rancor, there’s little chance it will turn into another Civil War.
Here’s why a civil war is not likely to occur anytime soon. (more…)
Rapper Nick Cannon is the most unlikely person to be embroiled in an “anti-Semitism” controversy. Cannon gained popularity as a clean, family-friendly rapper. No one has ever mistaken him for hardcore or gangsta — he’s the nice rapper white families can listen to on their drive to church. His inoffensiveness and bourgeois image (more…)
Over the weekend, there was a bit of a buzz around the announced “resignation” of Blake Neff, who worked for Tucker Carlson on Fox News as his head writer. A statement put out by Fox’s management suggested that Carlson would address the issue on Monday. Evidently, Carlson’s writer, Neff, had committed the Orwellian thought crime of “shitposting” on the internet under a pseudonym and had been outed by CNN’s Oliver Darcy. (more…)
It feels like a slap in the face when you think you are living in interesting times, but then you realize, no. No, you were not. Those times, or really, our memories of those times which slowly evaporate even as they cling more tightly to the fear centers and emotion hubs of our minds, were not terribly interesting at all, were they? (more…)
If you search for Carl Schmitt on Counter-Currents, you’ll get a veritable deluge of articles written or inspired by this most eminent of German jurists. From my own humble attempts at applying his friend-enemy distinctions to American race relations, much grander thinkers’ treatments on the deeper aspects of Schmittean thought, (more…)
This morning I woke up to the news of another casualty in the culture war. A dusty, 20-year-old skit of late-night comedian and SNL alum Jimmy Fallon donning brown makeup and a wig to mimic African racial features, in a Chris Rock impersonation, went viral. And just like clockwork, Fallon is on Twitter performing the self-flagellation ritual that is demanded of him by the anti-racism Sanhedrin. (more…)
Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was convicted of criminal sexual assault and rape in the third degree this week. He did catch a break in being found not guilty of the more serious charges of predatory sexual assault and rape in the first degree.
Weinstein’s conviction was celebrated by President Trump and many of his supporters. (more…)
