I hear it’s that time of year again when woke capital takes time out of its busy schedule to celebrate sexual deviancy and the courage of the gays. As has become customary, I will now use this time to reflect on the past — specifically, the 2001 French comedy Le Placard (The Closet). (more…)

Cricket. Not as homely as “mom and apple pie,” but, to the Englishman, just as evocative of home. If American readers don’t know the game, I won’t attempt to explain more than to say it’s the one that is played by what look like hospital interns using bookshelves as bats who attempt to swat a baseball-sized, rock-hard, red leather ball hurled by a bowler (more…)
Falling Deep Into the Slurry Pit
Last Thursday, the US Supreme Court was scheduled to review a lawsuit by a black man who’d worked in Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas, claiming he’d been subjected to a hostile work environment after seeing “the N-word” carved into an elevator wall at the hospital. (more…)
Live by the Woke, Die by the Woke: The Cancellation of Socialism Done Left
By the time I heard about the cancelation of the BreadTuber known as Socialism Done Left, the controversy was already a few days old. I had never heard of the guy, but when I stumbled upon the Vice article “Leaked Racist Messages Shows “Leftist” Youtuber Isn’t” written by affirmative action hire Gita Jackson, I initially wanted to defend him. (more…)
When I first said I wanted to be a comedian, everyone laughed. Well, they’re not laughing now.

If you and your friends were to have a séance, and you channeled the spirit of George Orwell, the greatest Englishman never to appear on a banknote would use the glass to tap out the following: stop quoting 1984. (more…)
Remembering Sam Francis: Samuel Francis’ Essential Writings on Race
Samuel Francis, ed. Jared Taylor
Essential Writings on Race
Oakton, Virginia: New Century Foundation, 2007
Samuel Francis’s Essential Writings on Race is what I would call a near-perfect equilateral triangle of political analysis. This is the highest possible praise for such a work. Allow me to explain. (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…)
So Awful You Have To Laugh: Dark Humor in Instauration
In February, I wrote a two-part article on Instauration after poring over the 25-year archive of the venerable newsletter. I included what I felt were some choice nuggets of wisdom from a publication bursting with profound insights into our situation as a race. One thing I had forgotten was how funny the readers and writers of Instauration could be. (more…)
Chet Hanks, Tom Hanks’ aspiring rapper son, declared the upcoming season “white boy summer.”
“I got this feeling that this summer is going to be a white boy summer,” Hanks said in a viral Instagram video. He made sure to define what kind of “vanilla king” he was talking about. “I’m not talking about Trump, NASCAR-type white. (more…)
My views on faith and spirituality have matured as I have gotten older. But when I was a teenager, heavy metal was my life and my religion. Unfortunately, this led to conflicts with my father as he returned to the Mormon Church. Despite rebelling against my father and the Mormon Church, I gained some important insights on human nature, self-reliance, and perseverance. These lessons can help the Dissident Right build communities across religious lines while still maintaining our personal views and beliefs. (more…)
Anyone with a decent education knows that the Iliad and Odyssey concern the fall of Troy and the struggle of Odysseus against a series of eldritch terrors on his voyage homeward. The timeless appeal is clear; the style is quite gripping, which especially comes out if one has a good translation or happens to know Greek. (more…)
Merrie England 2,000
Sandycroft Publications: 1993
In earlier times, there was much speculative fiction about conditions around the turn of the millennium. (We’re still waiting for those hovercars, dammit. . .) Other literature focuses more on changes in society than imaginative technology. (more…)
Since my pre-review based on the first trailer of Denis Villeneuve’s much-anticipated and much-postponed Dune got a good discussion going, I decided to do the same with the equally-hyped, equally-postponed Bond movie No Time to Die.
Everybody has a time to die, including James Bond. Bond has cheated death countless times, but this time his number may be up. If so, the death certificate will list COVID-19. (more…)
The Second Civil War: Did a 1997 HBO Film Accidentally Presage Today’s America?
In 1998, when I was 12 years old, my father and I were watching television one evening when we stumbled upon an HBO made-for-TV movie called The Second Civil War.
The film has been largely forgotten in the years since, but its content — and the eerily accurate predictions within it — are quite astounding to behold today, 22 years later.
The film was directed by Joe Dante and has an ensemble cast featuring Denis Leary, Dan Hedaya, James Earl Jones, Beau Bridges, Phil Hartman, (more…)
The PJs was an animated television sitcom series that unfortunately ran for only three seasons, from 1999 to 2001. Shockingly by today’s standards, the series focused on lampooning inner-city blacks, depicting them as buffoons in a way that would only be acceptable today if the subjects were white. It was not so long ago that (more…)

Life Styles: Native & Imposed
For decades now, African American leaders have been calling for a formal United States apology for the American role in the slave trade, with some even demanding reparations. Indian tribes proclaim their tax-exempt status as something they are owed for a legacy of persecution by the United States. Mexican Americans in the southwest United States seek to incorporate this region, including California, into Mexico, or even to set up an independent nation, Aztlan, that will recreate the glories of the Aztec empire, destroyed centuries ago by the imperialistic Spaniards. (more…)
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 (more…)
I don’t want to be like some passive artist for people to go, “Oh, what do you think of Tom Macdonald,” and they’re like, “You can take him or leave him.” I don’t want that. I want people to go either, “Yo, I love that guy,” or “Yo, I f*****g hate that guy.” I want an emotional response to this stuff.
— Tom MacDonald (more…)
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. (more…)

Greg Johnson talks to John Morgan about his memories of the late Charles Krafft, including his story of narrowly missing a chance to meet Julius Evola.

- Jef Costello’s memoir of hanging out in San Francisco with John and Charlie
Storytelling (2001) is the most politically incorrect movie I have ever seen. Indeed, it is so un-PC that it could never have been made today.
Director Todd Solondz is a really sick guy. His films Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness, Palindromes, and Life During Wartime can justly be accused of fixating on bullying, rape, pedophilia, abortion, suicide, and murder. (more…)
Life at the End of History: Against Nineties Nostalgia
To understand the man you have to know what was happening in the world when he was twenty.
— Napoleon Bonaparte
I grew up in the final years of the Cold War. If you aren’t old enough to remember the Cold War, let me tell you that it was a trip.
Over the weekend, there was a bit of a buzz around the announced “resignation” of Blake Neff, who worked for Tucker Carlson on Fox News as his head writer. A statement put out by Fox’s management suggested that Carlson would address the issue on Monday. Evidently, Carlson’s writer, Neff, had committed the Orwellian thought crime of “shitposting” on the internet under a pseudonym and had been outed by CNN’s Oliver Darcy. (more…)
I’m not going to claim that I have been totally 1488 from day one or that I came goose-stepping out of the womb. But I think I have always been instinctively and intuitively a race realist. Or at least, I have been since around the age of 8. The first black person I ever met was this kid named Scooter when I was in kindergarten. This would have been in the early 80s. (more…)
A new mode of obtaining power of mind over mind, in quantity hitherto without example.

Here we go again.
Renowned Civil War General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife’s remains are in the process of being removed from the Health Sciences Park in Memphis.
We can thank the activist Left for going the extra mile to defend us from such dangerous artifacts of American history. Nothing screams “the civil rights battle of our time” like knocking down monuments and exhuming corpses of evil, racist white men. (more…)
Against Inclusiveness: How the Diversity Regime is Flattening America and the West and What to Do About It
Tacoma: Angelico Press, 2013
Behold! We the Netizens in the days of yore, after Al Gore hath wrought the Internet, ventured forth with the might of our 56K modems. Yon Information Superhighway was then yet a realm of unbounded freedom, long ere Woke Capital unleashed its tyranny. It was in these bold times that I came upon the writings of the sage Jim Kalb.
