Tom Metzger, American Radical
(April 9, 1938-November 4, 2020)

Phil Eiger Newmann, Tom Metzger, 2020.

1,724 words

Terrible Tommy Metzger died the day after the election.

One night in the fall of 1989 I was a snot-nosed and cocksure wigger journalist who’d tooled the hundred miles or so south from my ratty apartment Read more …

After the Election

Like many of you, I got caught up in the 2020 US presidential race. From Tuesday to Friday of election week, I was glued to the internet, biting my nails and hitting refresh like a rat in a Skinner box. Read more …

Wignat Whexit:
Why “Punishing” the Republicans Won’t Change Them

1,428 words

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. Read more …

Macron: Between Naïveté & Impotence

1,001 words

Translated by Greg Johnson

Nicolas Gauthier: With his speech at Les Mureaux, and his promise to begin fighting “Islamic separatism,” Emmanuel Macron seems to have discovered previously unglimpsed realities. Is this to his credit? Can we say that he is now regaining control?

Alain de Benoist: Macron has many faults, but he’s not a complete idiot. Read more …

Are Things as Bad as They Seem?

Franz Geffels, The Relief of Vienna, 1683-1694.

2,905 words

How bad are things now? “Pretty bad” is a decent answer, though a brief one. We’re faced with daunting challenges, quite obviously, though it’s a mischaracterization to say that all is lost. This has some very practical considerations. Read more …

Burn Down the GOP?

1,273 words

The Dissident Right is no fan of the Republican Party. For years, we’ve seen the party as an obstacle rather than an asset for white identity politics. Many identitarians believe the GOP must die for white Americans to survive and the Dissident Right should focus on killing this obsolete beast. Read more …

Remembering Richard Wagner
(May 22, 1813–February 13, 1883)

472 words

Richard Wagner was born 206 years ago today in Leipzig in the Kingdom of Saxony. He died on February 13, 1883 in Venice. As an artist, intellectual, author, and cultural force, Wagner has left an immense metapolitical legacy, which is being evaluated and appropriated in the North American New Right. I wish to draw your attention to the following writings which have been published at Counter-Currents. Read more …

What the Right Can Learn from the DSA

1,561 words

The Democratic Socialists of America, once obscure, are now one of the most powerful left-wing groups in the country. But Bernie Sanders’ humiliating loss in the Democratic primary casts doubt on the eventual triumph of the DemSoc utopia. Could the DSA just be a flash in the pan? And, most importantly for us, what can the Real Right learn from the DSA? Read more …

Reaction is Best Served Cold

1,108 words

As the old Sicilian saying goes: don’t get angry — get even.

I believe that everyone reading is familiar with the idea that revenge is a dish best served cold. Rage makes us stupid; anger drives us to make mistakes, waltz into traps set by our enemies, and go on embarrassing rants Read more …

Arab Spring Through the Looking Glass:
A Polemic Essay

2,398 words

Protesters march on Avenue Habib Bourguiba in downtown Tunis, 14 Jan 2011

One spark can ignite the whole world, or at least one part of it. It was December 17, 2010, when a young man named Mohamed Bouazizi pushed his handcart down to the market in Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia. Police approached him and accused him of violating regulations he hadn’t. They demanded money, and when he had none, they humiliated him and took his vegetable scales. Bouazizi went to the town office to complain, but was refused. Read more …

Reconstruction by the Obama Court Historian:
Henry Louis Gates Jr.’s Stony the Road

1,063 words

Although he was a supporter of President Obama, Henry Louis Gates Jr. did the President no favor when Gates made a scene and was arrested by a Massachusetts cop in 2009. Obama unwisely commented on the matter and had to hold a “beer summit” to smooth things over later. The cost of Gates’s temper tantrum was staggeringly high: In no small part due to their racial animus, Gates (and the President) turned a minor misunderstanding into a national firestorm, all during a massive economic crisis and while Obama was trying to navigate his health care reform through Congress.  Read more …

Cultural Marxist vs. Material Marxist, Part 2:
Is Capitalism the Real Racist?

2,696 words

There are reasons why the neoliberal establishment hates Bernie Sanders so much, and it’s not just because he’s a threat to their donors’ stock portfolios. Class-based material Marxism — once a pillar of Leftist thought — is not only incompatible with but also heretical to the neoliberal worldview and agenda. Read more …

Our Votes Don’t Matter, But Our Ideas Do

Normal Rockwell Undecided1,542 words

How should White Nationalists take part in American electoral politics?

In the long run, we want our ideas to be hegemonic, the common sense of the whole political system, upheld by all the political parties. We want white interests to be as sacrosanct as anti-racism, diversity, and globalization are to the major parties today. When all parties work to secure our interests, it doesn’t matter who wins elections, because whites can’t lose. Read more …

Principles are More Important Than People

2,610 words

There is a lot of wisdom in the anonymous saying: “Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.”

But understanding this saying requires some nuances. One can’t understand politics without discussing all three categories: ideas, events, and people.

Thus great minds do not discuss only ideas. Read more …
