Looking From the Left

1,753 words

One of the lessons of 2020 is that the near future is every bit as unpredictable as the past, perhaps more so. Six months ago, no one would have predicted a replay of the disastrous Black Lives Matter stuff from the Left. Similarly, few would have predicted that the Democrat Party would have installed a dementia patient as their candidate Read more …

You Know You’re Right

Mars, ca. 2nd century AD.

2,096 words

You are here because you are convinced of the rightness of your ideas. This is not meant in a specific, epistemological sense; as in, your ideas have been verified by some kind of universal truth or that they are backed by data drawn from rigor, though these things could be applied to many of the ideas we hold on the Right. I mean that you are convinced enough of what you hold to be true that you are taking a risk in upholding it, even in the face of great adversaries. Read more …

Kennedy’s Suppression of Right-Wing Speech

Paul Matzko [1]
The Radio Right: How a Band of Broadcasters took on the Federal Government and Built the Modern Conservative Movement
New York: Oxford University Press, 2020

The decade of the 1960s is laden with irony and contradictions. On the one hand, especially in the early days of the decade, there was the appearance of national unity and calm across America. But just under the surface, explosive forces were gathering. Read more …

Welcome to Year 1 of the After-Floyd Era

Detail, Pietr Bruegel the Elder, The Triumph of Death, 1562-1563.

1,683 words

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?

Schmitt, the Man

877 words

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, Read more …

Counter-Currents Under Attack

1,100 words

Once again, Counter-Currents is without a credit card processor. But it’s worse than ever, folks. We have not been dropped by our credit card processor. In fact, when the usual suspects pressured them to drop their dissident clients, they stood by us. So instead, our enemies managed to put our credit card processor out of business.

This is a whole new level of tyranny.

In 2019, Counter-Currents was deplatformed from 80% of the global book market (Amazon and Barnes and Noble). Read more …

Steve Bannon’s Dharma

6,486 words

Errol Morris’ American Dharma, which is a documentary about Steve Bannon, is probably the most elusive film ever produced by a major filmmaker. Although it premiered at film festivals in September 2018 and received a great deal of press (most of it negative) at the time, it was impossible to see for over a year thereafter. The distributors refused to bring it to theaters, it wasn’t shown on television, and you couldn’t find it streaming or on DVD. Read more …

Fascists Among Us: Online Hate and the Christchurch Massacre

This short book claims to be “[t]he first book since Christchurch to trace the massacre’s fascist roots and what it represents.”[1] The author, Jeff Sparrow, links a specific ideology (viz. fascism) to the event and tries to account for this ideology’s evolution from its original form to the present day.

Comedian Cracks Wise with the ADL

2,159 words

My initial reaction to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s keynote address to the Anti-Defamation League and his follow-up editorial for the Washington Post was to laugh it off. He’s a comedian. Not only that, he’s what I would call a practical joke comedian: someone who makes ordinary people the butt of his humor. Sort of like Andy Kaufman, but nastier and more cynical. As a result, part of his living is embarrassing and humiliating innocent folks. Read more …

Counter-Currents Loses Its Payment Processor Yet Again

345 words

Last week, we were cut off from yet another credit card processor – at least the fourth time just this year that this has happened. This means that for the time being, we are not able to receive payments for books or donations from credit cards. We are working full-time to set up a replacement – and rest assured, we will – and we hope to have one up and running in a matter of days.

You(Tube) Will Not Replace Us!

James Allsup

2,256 words

Over the last few days, I have been watching YouTube burn. Friends and colleagues have had their channels, large and small, deleted, many of them without warning or any pretense of fairness, rules, process, or appeal. It is Leftist corporate tyranny at its ugliest and least accountable.

The first wave of this new campaign was in June. That is when CounterCurrentsTV got the axe. Read more …

How Twitter Censors Right-Wing Users

1,110 words

When people talk about censorship on Twitter, it is often naïvely assumed that this must mean straightforward banning of users, or clumsy deletion of individual tweets. In fact, individual tweets are very rarely deleted, except in tandem with sanctioning the user responsible (usually with a lifelong ban, or a precursor to it). As for the banning of users, that is certainly widespread and occurs literally daily at this point.

Five Concepts from Chateau Heartiste

712 words

Like everyone, I held my breath almost every time I checked in on the website Chateau Heartiste. It seemed destined to be shut down in the present hostile climate. It was too spicey, too radical, too honest.

Then, on Friday, May 10, as I did my usual cruise around the internet, I summoned it from my bookmarks and was met with a blunt cancellation notice. This hit me harder than other recent shutdowns. Read more …

How to Fight Amazon Censorship

Captain Bezos, book-burner-in-chief

884 words

As we have already publicized on this site, Amazon has rolled out a new policy of censoring books based solely on their political content – specifically, those books which engage in thoughtcrime against the Establishment’s sacred cows of the unquestionable desirability of globalization, open borders, multiculturalism, and egalitarianism.

An Alternative Kind of Deplatforming

Naomi Wu

1,082 words

Recently, Naomi Wu’s story was brought to my attention on Twitter by Hank Oslo of the Myth of the 20th Century podcast. Naomi Wu is a tech adept from the People’s Republic of China (PRC), living in Shenzhen. She does a bit of coding, but mainly focuses on building gadgetry, and she has invented things such as LED display hats that project images over your face to help circumvent the face detection software that has become ubiquitous in the urbanized parts of the rather autocratic PRC.
