We Won

1,611 words

A line was crossed on January 6, 2021: a large group of what seemed to be almost entirely white Americans marched to the Capitol building in Washington DC in an effort to both express a general displeasure at election fraud and to protest the confirmation of the deeply, hopelessly corrupt and soulless neoliberal Joe Biden as President. They did it beautifully, Read more …

Despair is a Sin

2,164 words

Okay, so the worst possible outcome has come to pass. We can all, however, take solace in the fact that it wasn’t our fault. It wasn’t Donald Trump’s fault either. He was our fighter — flawed but spirited — who had taken our nemesis Joe Biden into the later rounds and was thoroughly shellacking him when the referee suddenly held Trump in place and allowed Biden to start whaling away on him below the belt.

Truth Doesn’t Win Wars

Phil Eiger Newmann, Walk of Shame, 2020.

1,836 words

I fell asleep early on Election Eve because I lost faith in the federal government — and the very idea that the United States was a sustainable nation — years ago. Ever since November 3, I’ve been disinterested in the issue of election fraud because I don’t think there’s much of an “America” that’s left to save. My gut feeling is that no matter who got elected president, we’re already well into a post-American phase and that the USA is a bankrupt and irredeemable enterprise. What good is one last round of chemo if the patient is already terminal? Read more …

The Mailed Fist Cometh

Oscar Benavides

1,045 words

For my friends, anything.
For my enemies, the law.

That epigram is attributed to a fellow named Oscar Benavides. Señor Benavides during the 1930s was the President of a Banana Republic with the official name of Peru. I stumbled across this cynical, but candid stab at a compressed management philosophy recently and concluded that it should be the entirety of Joe Biden’s Inaugural Address later this January.

Polish Nationalism of the New Millennium:
An Interview with Jaroslaw Ostrogniew

4,519 words

I have known Jaroslaw for a long time. He always impressed me as a highly erudite individual. We are both active in writing articles on the New Right and in various metapolitical organizations. We agreed to exchange interviews, so I will provide an interview for Szturm magazine and Jaroslaw for Reconquista. Read more …

I Want You to Hurt Like I Do

1,340 words

With all the uncertainty surrounding the 2020 election, I’m reminded of the Randy Newman song “I Want You to Hurt Like I Do.” It’s a slow, depressing waltz about a self-centered person who’s cruel to others for no reason. And when asked why, he repeats the song title for an explanation. Read more …

Might As Well Nudge

1, 282 words

Everyone is familiar with psychological warfare, in which information is used to break down the morale of an enemy in wartime. It can also be used on individuals within a community in order to get them to act in a specific way. There’s also propaganda, which is an information campaign used by government to change public opinion Read more …

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?

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 …

Jeff Sparrow
Fascists Among Us: Online Hate and the Christchurch Massacre
Brunswick, Victoria: Scribe Publications, 2019

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.
