Yes, We are Headed for Violent Civil War

Franciso Goya, The Disasters of War, Plate 39: Grande hazaña! Con muertos! (A heroic feat! With dead men!).

3,057 words

On October 1st, with little fanfare, Politico published an extraordinary opinion piece that may be the most important thing I’ve read all year. Titled “Americans Increasingly Believe Violence is Justified if the Other Side Wins,” the essay was penned by three “senior fellows” at the Hoover Institution, New America, and the Hudson Institute, Read more …

The Conceded Election

1,447 words

Richard Nixon made a fateful decision on the afternoon of November 9, 1960. He telegrammed John F. Kennedy to formally concede the presidential race. This concession ensured that there was no nasty legal battle or potential constitutional crisis over the election. Read more …

Civil War Movies:
Good vs. Bad

1,841 words

There was a time that the American mainstream was really interested in the US Civil War of 1860-1865. That time was before Obama’s gloomy second term empowered the insane asylum of weeping non-whites, deviants, mattoids, and Marxists that rejected all American history Read more …

Mainstream Panic Over Weimerica

1,213 words

Weimar comparisons are in the air again. Violent street clashes between Antifa and Trump supporters in Portland inspired a new round of historical allusions to interwar Germany. Long a theme within the Dissident Right, “Weimar America” is now making its way into mainstream discourse. Read more …

Trump Should Wargame Secession, Too

2,474 words

Earlier this month, the New York Times revealed that top-level Democrats have been wargaming possible outcomes of the November 2020 election and are considering secession if things don’t go their way. This should come as a surprise to no one. Since the epoch-changing George Floyd riots — which began in May and are still ongoing Read more …

“McBoomers”

991 words

I am a creature of habit. One of my daily morning rituals, after snoozing my alarm at least twice, is to check my phone for the morning headlines and to have a look at trending topics on Twitter. The viral meme du jour this Monday morning was that of “Ken and Karen McBoomer,” Read more …

Strange & Bitter Fruit

1,215 words

Six black people have been found dead, hanging from trees, during the month of June so far. They were all ruled as suicides by local police. Black people refuse to believe that’s true, of course. The circumstances of these deaths too closely resemble the lynchings of yesteryear, right down to the surrounding social turmoil and the highly public spectacle of the corpses. Read more …

The Politics of Meat:
Dietary Anti-Marxism

2,543 words

If veganism is dietary Marxism, is the Carnivore movement dietary anti-Marxism? I think that the answer is yes. Indeed, the whole Carnivore subculture smells deliciously Right-wing — like a perfectly grilled ribeye steak. Read more …

The Politics of Meat:
Dietary Marxism

Shawn Baker, M. D.

2,480 words

Since going on the carnivore diet, I’ve also been delving deeply into Carnivore subculture. It has been an eye-opening experience. As we are constantly being reminded, Americans are now divided along political lines like never before. What kind of car you drive, where you shop for groceries, whether or not you smoke, what kind of regional accent you have, whether or not you live in a city, whether you hunt or own a gun, Read more …

America Is Not a Real Country

2,220 words

The term “failed state” conjures images in the mind’s eye of collapsed banana republics, exploding Islamic theocracies, and Somalia in general. It’s a condition that would be unthinkable in the West; the countries and nation-states that constituted a vast majority of the world’s white people have remained mostly in place for centuries Read more …

They Do This Because They Can

The Coronavirus Didn’t End Globalism, it Ended the American Era

USS Saratoga, 1843

1,869 words

If there is one crisis that shows national populism and race realism were needed, this should have been it.

The coronavirus emerged from strange, disgusting foreign folkways. (Even Bill Maher is with me on wet markets.) Economic globalization allowed the virus’s spread. Read more …

Sága alternativní pravice o čtyřech dějstvích. Část třetí.

Staré dobré časy… před třemi lety.

Část prvnídruhá, a závěrečná čtvrtá.

 Centralizace, čistky a kolaps

Richardu Spencerovi bylo přirozeně líto, že opustil značku, jíž se zaštítila tak energická politická síla a která se stala mezinárodní mediální senzací. Proto se pokusil ji znovu dostat do svého vlastnictví. Byl tu ale problém: nové hnutí z let 2014 a 2015 mělo se Spencerem společného jen pramálo, s výjimkou jména. Spencer to potvrdil v rozhovoru s politologem Georgem Hawleyem z 12. října 2016, v němž akademik shromažďoval podklady pro svou knihu Understanding the Alt-Right. Read more …

White Nationalism, the Alt Right, & the Alt Light

1,550 words

There is a lot of confusion about the relationship of White Nationalism, the Alt Right, and the so-called Alt Light.

The “Alt Right” is a vague category that encompasses different tendencies of thought united by their rejection of mainstream conservatism. White Nationalism is one such tendency, and the Alt Light is another.

The Alt Light is defined by civic nationalism as opposed to racial nationalism. Read more …

Do We Need Enemies?
Introducing the Amoeba Model of Political Change

Jean-Léon Gérôme, Pollice Verso (detail), 1872

2,019 words

Early on in Samuel Huntington’s classic political analysis, The Clash of Civilizations, he makes the following point: “For peoples seeking identity and reinventing ethnicity, enemies are essential, and the potentially most dangerous enmities occur across the fault lines between the world’s major civilizations.”

Well, that’s us, of course. If anything, the Alt Right is “seeking identity and reinventing ethnicity” for white people wherever they are. This is our driving force, and I don’t need to explain it further here. But is it true that we need enemies to do this?  Read more …

Chicago: The Veil is Being Lifted

Donald Trump1,150 words

At the root of all politics is a threat of violence. Whether enacted from above or below, the ability to assert one’s political interests requires, at the very least, the threat of force.

Connectors vs. Polarizers

handshake1,291 words

Spanish translation here

In his book The Tipping Point (reviewed here), Malcolm Gladwell talks about the importance of people he calls Connectors, Mavens, and Salesmen in the viral propagation of ideas. Connectors are people who have a gift for making friends and acquaintances. Gladwell attributes this knack to “some combination of curiosity, self-confidence, sociability, and energy” (p. 49).  Read more …
