What is it like to be a social media censor? I have no direct knowledge. In fact, I’d prefer to become a male prostitute than do a thing like that. (I’d rather sell my body than my personal integrity.) However, the article “The secret lives of Facebook moderators in America” does have some insights on the subject. (more…)

Proud of Being Guilty: Fighting the Stigma of Lawfare in Sweden & Winning
Since July 2 of last year, people who have been prosecuted under Sweden’s so-called hate crime legislation during the last few years have begun receiving medals in their mailboxes. This important project was started by a group of patriots who are trying to remove the stigma associated with these “crimes,” instead turning it into an honor — tangible proof of resistance against what is happening to our country.

If An Agent Knocks is a guidebook written by the Center for Constitutional Rights. Although they’re a left-leaning advocacy group, they’re not the sort likely to make you run away screaming as if Cthulhu is trying to eat your mind. Actually, some of their causes may be of interest. The intended audience is those who might be targeted by politically-motivated investigations and harassment under color of law. I’ll go over the basics, and add my extensive commentary as usual.

To penetrate the mainstream, we will ultimately need a cadre of dedicated, outspoken activists who openly align themselves with white nationalism. However, most white nationalists are not in a position to be open about their views for various reasons. (more…)

Edward Alsworth Ross: American Metapolitical Hero
Edward Alsworth Ross (1866-1951) was a prominent professor and eugenicist. He wasn’t a man of the Right in the strictest sense — he argued that the United States should recognize the Soviet Union after the Bolshevik Revolution and he supported Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. However, one could fairly call him a white advocate. He focused on preserving America’s founding Nordic stock. He eventually became chairman of the American Civil Liberties Union. (more…)
The nights grow long and dark and cold. I’ve often suspected that Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year’s are merely three sedatives we administer ourselves to collectively brace for the gaping black icy void in the months that follow when the sun never seems to shine and the plants refuse to grow.

What Joe Biden’s Internet Policy Means for the Dissident Right
What are the implications of Joe Biden’s plans for internet censorship and a federal task force meant to combat hate speech? First, I will speak of the vulnerabilities in popular “far-right” organizations that could be exploited by this development, then I will talk about what I believe will happen if these plans actually go into effect. (more…)
Why “Punishing” the Republicans Won’t Change Them
In 2016, Donald Trump ran as a populist and won. In 2020, his bid for re-election followed the standard Republican playbook. There was a lot of talk about the stock market, very little populist talk about immigration, globalization, and protectionism. (more…)
Big Tech censored a major newspaper last week in the service of its preferred presidential candidate. The New York Post’s bombshell report about Joe Biden’s failson Hunter would’ve been the biggest story in the country, complete with reporters grilling the Democratic candidate and every other outlet making it front-page news.
But that didn’t happen. (more…)

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 (more…)

Sometimes a ray of sunshine peeks through otherwise dark and gloomy clouds in the midst of a volatile storm, such as the torrential political post-Floyd world. I experienced such a moment of illumination today in the most unlikely of places, my local corporate grocery store. Well, technically, it was while I was on the phone (more…)

Among the tedious mainstream talking points of the past few years has been the tone of political discourse in this country. This began with the candidacy of Donald Trump, during which his supporters unleashed hell on his opponents on social media.

Technological Censorings of America for Make Benefit Glorious League of Anti-Defamations
I am old enough to remember a time where you could get instant laughs by saying jagshemash. It was a mythical era known as the mid-2000s. Life was simpler and slower, but it was richer than our hyper-digitized era. It was the last quarter of the Bush era; the defining political issue of the day was America’s foreign adventurism and imperialism. (more…)

On Sunday, February 24th, 2019, Amazon.com — the world’s book marketplace — banned my book The White Nationalist Manifesto.
Amazon did not merely decide to no longer stock the book. They also removed the product listing pages. So it is as if the book never even existed.
Orwell called this the “memory hole.” It is not enough for totalitarians to kill their enemies. They must also be erased from history. (more…)

Last April, I wrote an article for Counter-Currents called “What Would a Trump Presidency Mean for Europe?” In it, I — like so many others in our neck of the political woods — predicted that Trump would win the election, and I discussed the impact I thought his victory would have on the situation in Europe.
