There’s that old saying that politics is showbiz for ugly people. If that’s true, I think it is fair to say that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has “gone Hollywood.” (more…)
Well, it looks like the honeymoon is over for the Dirtbag Left. And as Counter-Currents’ official Dirtbag Left correspondent, I’m here to tell you about it. (more…)
Jew-Baiting Capitol Rioter With Ironic Hitler Mustache Finally Found!
If you’re even half-awake at this juncture in history, you’d realize that nearly all of the participants in January 6’s Capitol Stampede — or Capitol Blitzkrieg, Capitol Lynching, Capitol Hate Crime, or Kapitallnacht, whatever they’re calling it this week — would rather crawl under a rock and die than be called a “racist.” (more…)
I had been aware for some time of the phrase “the engineer’s fallacy,” but unaware of its provenance and exact definition. I struck lucky on the ‘net, because this gentleman claims to have invented the phrase, and this short piece repays inspection.
Mr. Kelly’s definition of the Engineer’s Fallacy is pleasingly simple: (more…)

You preachers of equality, thus from you the tyrant-madness of impotence cries for “equality”; thus your most secret tyrant-appetite disguises itself in words of virtue. 
We are living through one of those periodic bursts of madness and irrationality that have always afflicted civilized societies. (more…)
The twofold crises of the Black Lives Matter movement and the COVID-19 pandemic are perfect opportunities for modern nihilists and culture-destroyers of every stripe to let off all the brakes. It is not often that world events align so cleanly with the rhetoric and goals of our enemies, which presents some troubling developments (more…)
Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 3: Could Bernie Split the American Left?
The ideal 2020 election scenario is for Bernie Sanders to lose the Democratic primary race, and for it to be black people’s fault. (more…)
Leftward Drift & Radical Ecology:
The Tragedy of Earth First!, Part 2
Part 2 of 2; part 1 here
With the early successes of Earth First! came the envious spite typical of the doctrinaire Left — who, despite their constant denunciations of ugly noxious screeds are themselves often quite guilty on that score. The opening salvo was fired by Murray Bookchin, a bloviating Hegelian from Vermont (by way of New York City). This was a man whose vituperative style and all-around prickliness eventually led even his own disciples to concede that he set back the cause of the American ecology movement for decades. (more…)
Leftward Drift & Radical Ecology:
The Tragedy of Earth First!, Part 1
Part 1 of 2; part 2 here
While its current champions would have us believe that political ecology is the exclusive domain of the Left, and often fret about the specter of entryism by racists and crypto-fascists into their struggle for world liberation, a cursory glance at the history of ecological thought reveals the opposite to be true. (more…)
Marx once said “History repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.” In 2020, the Democratic party seems poised to relive mistakes it made less than a lifetime ago, and to my knowledge, few have drawn the obvious parallels.
In August of 1968, at the highpoint of the anti-war, hippie countercultural movement, the Democrats met in Chicago to anoint one of their own as the man who would take on Richard Nixon. (more…)

I Listened to Chapo Trap House So You Don’t Have To
No other form of media better encapsulates the socialist backlash in the English-speaking world against 21st century neoliberalism than the bizarre Marxist podcast Chapo Trap House, hosted by “large adult sons” (more…)
Whatever happened to the perfectly good term ‘fancy dress’? I suppose one might argue that ‘cosplay’ emphasises the element of play to it, of playing the role the costume suggests. One such man who loves to do this is Justin Trudeau. There is nothing terribly wrong with that – except that he does it when representing the country he is prime minister of on the world stage. Even worse, the majority of Canadians seem to think this is perfectly normal. (more…)
