The New England schlockmeister Stephen King is a bad but interesting writer. Success is an interesting phenomenon, after all, and King is one of the most successful writers who have ever lived. Born in 1947 in Portland, Maine, he has sold millions of books in dozens of languages and won even wider exposure through film adaptations of novels like Carrie (1974) and The Shining (1977). (more…)

Chauvin Found Guilty — But There’s More Work To Be Done, So Let’s Keep Rioting!
After being found guilty on all three counts last week, Derek Chauvin has become the nation’s white-boy-summer piñata (more…)
Critical Race Theory: America’s 21st-Century Lysenkoism
Thinking about the continuing plague of neo-Bolshevik assaults on our intelligence and our institutions brought me around to reflect on the difference between pure and applied disciplines of knowledge. Consider: pure or theoretical mathematics is the abstract science of number, quantity, and space, as distinct from applied mathematics, (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…)
Since we live in a world dominated by white men — heck, even the rock-climbing world is “dominated by white men” — it’s odd to behold how openly hostile most of this world’s major institutions are toward white men.
Our objective news media has been warning us for years about the “far Right,” which is an extreme movement that is always on the rise and always threatening to erupt into cataclysmic violence, an ever-looming possibility that all People of Color must wrestle with, (more…)
Election Day forecast: partly cloudy with widespread outbreaks of political violence.
As the weirdest presidential campaign in history hobbles to a close during this odd post-American era during which America still pretends it’s a country, polls show that Americans agree more on the fact that there will be post-election violence than they can agree on the election’s winner. (more…)
Another week brings us seven days closer to the mass graves they’re digging for us.
Do we dare ponder the moment the entire country realizes they severely overestimated black potential and that it’s too late to do anything about it?
Sean “Diddy” Combs is a negroidal cultural impresario with no discernible talent or insight but whose net worth is estimated at $855 million. If one assumes that (more…)
Football players in England resumed their interrupted season in front of empty stands this month. Before the first game, each player, in addition to their name, squad number, and advertising slogans (including the now-sainted NHS or National Health Service symbol), wore the slogan “Black Lives Matter” on the back of their shirts, (more…)
If there is one universal truth about humanity, it’s that we are, by nature, tribalistic. We identify with our tribe, whatever that tribe may be. In a monoracial society, tribalist loyalties can form around clans, nations, religions, classes, or even actual tribes, as is the case in many places in Africa. In multiracial societies, however, everything boils down to race. (more…)
It is often said that those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it. As crazy as the looting, violence, and capitulation has been this week, I get the feeling that history is currently repeating itself now. Watching the videos of non-whites assaulting random white people reminds me of the horrors of the Haitian Massacre of 1804. (more…)
Learning From the Germans: Race and the Memory of Evil
Farrar, Straus, and Giroux: New York, 2019
Germans are notorious for their ethno-masochism. Their official identity is built on guilt and the need for atonement. Germans can only look back at their past with shame; pride is impossible. More Germans are challenging the national guilt cult, but it is still enshrined by the government and the culture. (more…)
The Counter-Currents 2019 Fundraiser
The Excellence of the White Race & the Chinese Question
Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 in order to expand our efforts to build a metapolitical vanguard for White Nationalism. So far, we have received 300 donations totaling $62,448.79. We set our goals high because the task we have before us is formidable, but with your help, we will succeed. We want to thank everyone who has supported us so far. (more…)

In the Platz der deutschen Einheit (German Unity Square) in Düsseldorf, someone has covered the street name with Simone de Beauvoir Platz. This is one example among many that anyone living in the Federal Republic of Germany may encounter – evidence of the hatred of their country which some Germans feel. Evidence is all around. (more…)
A novelist can have tremendous influence beyond his own time if he depicts major historical trends and invents characters that react in conflicting ways to these trends. If a story is vivid enough, readers might come to identify with or even emulate such characters, since the historical pressures bearing down on them bear down on the readers as well. William Faulkner accomplishes such a feat in his 1942 novel of interrelated short stories, Go Down, Moses.
I think it was the overly pious tone of her voice that first made my stomach churn: the sickly sentimentality of the pretentious do-gooder, quickly followed by the first sight of Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite’s pallid face, saying things like, “This creation is my way of coping with the world at the moment,” which immediately sent me rushing to the toilet as if I had food poisoning.
Pite continued, “And I can’t not talk about it. (more…)
Politicians, journalists, and activists all agree that White Nationalism poses the greatest threat to Western democracy, and it must be stamped out by state and corporate power.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren argued that “white supremacists” pose as much of a threat to America as ISIS, and must be treated as terrorists. “We have to recognize the threat of white nationalism. We’ve got to call it out. As President of the United States, my Justice Department would go after white nationalists with full prosecution,” the 2020 presidential candidate declared.
Mortal Engines is an action-adventure yarn spanning four books by teen fiction author Philip Reeve, first published in 2001. With the recent box-office flop of the movie adaptation, it’s an opportune time to share some thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of this enduringly popular quartet. I first read Mortal Engines and its sequels (Predator’s Gold, Infernal Devices, and A Darkling Plain) in my mid-teens, and haven’t picked them up since, so the following is entirely from a decade’s worth of offhand contemplation.
The murder of Mollie Tibbetts–a young University of Iowa student–at the hands of an illegal immigrant showed the horrible consequences of diversity to millions of Americans last summer. (more…)
The Five Types of Warfare that China Is Waging on the Western World

This essay simply argues that Holocaust revisionism does not perform as advertised for the purposes of advancing White Nationalism. It was originally published at The Occidental Observer on July 20, 2012, where it proved my adage that “All of life is an IQ test.” Aside from the addition of section headings, it is reprinted without alteration here and in my book New Right vs. Old Right, available in hardcover, paperback, and Kindle and Nook Ebook formats.

David Fincher’s big-star, big-budget, English-language remake of the 2009 Swedish film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was certainly not necessary from an artistic point of view. The original film, directed by Dane Niels Arden Oplev, was extremely well-acted and well-made. For fans of the novel, it is iconic.
The obvious motive for the remake, of course, was money. (more…)

Racism is universal. Everybody is racist, including non-whites and mainstream whites.
Social conformity and blind obedience to perceived authority—that is to say, prevailing cultural norms—powerfully define the form of racism that predominates.
Diagnosing “Passover Syndrome” Among White Liberals
Don’t tell Richard Spencer, but I have been stopping by TakiMag every day since I discovered that Jim Goad is one of their regular columnists.
German director Uli Edel’s The Baader-Meinhof Complex (2008) is a riveting portrayal of the career of the Red Army Fraction (Rote Armee Fraktion), a left-wing terrorist group better known as the Baader-Meinhof Gang after Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof, two of the group’s founders. The other founders were Gudrun Ensslin and Horst Mahler (now a comrade on the Right and a prisoner of conscience in Occupied Germany).
