It was a sweltering July afternoon at the Malvern Hill battle site — more than 150 years gone since it had been the scene of General Robert E. Lee’s debut in the 1862 Seven Days campaign. It was the conclusion of his defense of Richmond from the numerically-superior Army of the Potomac, led by George McClellan. (more…)

Quotations From Chairman Rabble Kenneth Roberts: A Patriotic Curmudgeon
The events of January 6 have been called an insurrection, a riot, an assault on democracy — the epitome of white supremacy, revolution, anarchy, elements of a coup d’etat.
One word they haven’t been called is rabble, which is almost a term of honor, and honorable terms aren’t what the state or its servitors want passed on. Honor, you say? Rabble? (more…)
The Second Civil War: Did a 1997 HBO Film Accidentally Presage Today’s America?
In 1998, when I was 12 years old, my father and I were watching television one evening when we stumbled upon an HBO made-for-TV movie called The Second Civil War.
The film has been largely forgotten in the years since, but its content — and the eerily accurate predictions within it — are quite astounding to behold today, 22 years later.
The film was directed by Joe Dante and has an ensemble cast featuring Denis Leary, Dan Hedaya, James Earl Jones, Beau Bridges, Phil Hartman, (more…)
The Stolen Election Will Red-Pill 70 Million Americans
At this point, it seems unlikely that Trump is going to prevail in his legal challenges. It’s possible that he will, but what do you think is more likely? If he doesn’t prevail, however, Biden’s “win” can actually be a tremendous win for us.
Why? Well, first let’s address the question of who “we” are. I hate to sound like Joe Biden, who seems not to know who he is (more…)
Bleeding Ulster: Lessons for White Advocates in Mostly What Not to Do
Northern Ireland is unique. The Wars of Religion that made seventeenth-century Europe a blood-soaked hellscape never ended there. To describe the situation in Northern Ireland simply, the Republicans — or Nationalists — are nearly all Catholic (or better said, culturally Catholic) and see themselves as Native Irish Gaels. (more…)
On October 1st, with little fanfare, Politico published an extraordinary opinion piece that may be the most important thing I’ve read all year. Titled “Americans Increasingly Believe Violence is Justified if the Other Side Wins,” the essay was penned by three “senior fellows” at the Hoover Institution, New America, and the Hudson Institute, (more…)
Wargaming Secession, Part 2: Introducing the ISEE Model of White Survival
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 (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…)
If you’re watching a helicopter combat scene with the opening song in Act 3 of Die Walküre as the soundtrack, then the film is Apocalypse Now. If you’re watching a helicopter combat scene with music by Clem Tholet, John Edmond, or maybe even a disco track, it’s probably a documentary of the Rhodesian Bush War.
The results are familiar to us as what happens when whites are disunited and opposed by our own government. However, (more…)
Civil War II? Thoughts on the George Floyd Riots of 2020
Counter-Currents has some excellent authors. One of my favorites is Spencer Quinn. He can take the complexities of current events and type out an excellent summation of them and what they mean. In one article, Quinn states:
And now that we are in Year 1 AFE (After-Floyd Era), we must all realize that the United States has been irrevocably damaged, (more…)
The enemy is not merely any competitor or just any partner of a conflict in general. He is also not the private adversary whom one hates. An enemy exists only when, at least potentially, one fighting collectivity of people confronts a similar collectivity. (more…)
