I’ve been reviewing Trump movies, and now it’s après moi, le deluge time. I saw The Father a couple of weeks ago in a typically empty theater, and was moved by its study of dementia and bravura acting by an excellent cast. Directed by Florian Zeller and based on his play, The Father tells the story of Anthony (Anthony Hopkins), an elderly man who lives alone in his shadowy apartment. (more…)
Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh, and America’s Fight over World War II, 1939–1941
New York: Random House, 2013
The idea of America First policy is back after a long hiatus. The first proponent for such a policy was none other than George Washington. (more…)
The Diversity Industry: Guilt-Leveraging at America’s Universities
At the invitation of a student group at Michigan State University, George Lincoln Rockwell, head of the American Nazi Party, came to the campus in East Lansing to address the students in 1967. No reported incidents. It was just another typical day on a typical American university campus. Imagine today the violence and vandalism (more…)
The Other Face of Terror (1984)
Directed by Ludi Boeken
BBC Channel Four
I came to realize there was a common motivating factor. It was hatred.
— Ray Hill
Ray Hill’s corpulent face and receding hairline fill the screen. He plucks a membership card for the secretive Column 88 out of an outsize jacket pocket, (more…)
Biology of Ideology, Part I: How to Win a Civil War
TWIST ENDING: What if you woke up on the precipice and realized you were about to punch or murder a Nazi over a biological quirk?
I know, you thought I was fixing to say “The best way to win a civil war is not to play!” and really, that’s kinda true too. (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…)
From Nixon to Reagan: A Look at the First Right Wing Revolution
The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan
New York: Simon & Schuster, 2014
The Invisible Bridge is a look at the link between Richard Nixon’s reshaping of American politics and the Republican Party and the rise of Ronald Reagan. In the 1970s, Ronald Reagan was considered very far to the Right, indeed. (more…)
There is some good news even in today’s interesting times. One item is that you’re probably not going to perish from the Wuhanic Plague. Some of us already have figured it out. For the rest, the following may be of comfort. (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…)
No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.

In March 2020, the world declared war on COVID-19.
The use of martial rhetoric with reference to peacetime political conflicts — the War on Drugs, the War on Poverty, the domestic arena of the War on Terror — has a long and dubious history in American politics. The appeal is obvious. Warlike language depicts every conflict as a life-or-death struggle, encourages mass mobilization, justifies significant intrusion into people’s lives, and provides a pretext for novel (and possibly illegal) political solutions. (more…)
If the title of this review surprises you, it shouldn’t. Do not be disillusioned — this multi-part spy saga is transparent propaganda, promoted (if not partly financed, I suspect) by Israel. It’s as Kosher as Rosenfeld’s bagels.
But first, the story. It concerns a Sephardic Jewish man, Eli Cohen, born in Alexandria, Egypt. By posing as an importer of Argentinian products into Syria, he manages to ingratiate himself into Syrian political society. Using the name Kamel Thaabet, he befriends members of the Ba’ath political party, including Colonel Amin al-Hafez who would later become Syria’s president (more…)
Orange Man Bad: The Game
Life is Strange 2 as seen from the Right
Life is Strange 2 is arguably the most topical video game to deal with Trump’s presidency, though his name is not even mentioned. Naturally it’s staunchly anti-American and anti-white in its messaging, starring Mexican-Americans fleeing racist white police officers and citizens, complete with references to “the wall” and ICE. Bizarrely, this propaganda piece – a dumbed-down point-and-click adventure game – (more…)
Sága alternativní pravice o čtyřech dějstvích. Část první.
If you’re seeing a lot of Nineteen Eighty-Four editions showing up in bookstores these days, it’s because 2019 marks the seventieth anniversary of the novel’s publication. (more…)

This is the opening essay of a forthcoming anthology called The Alternative Right.
The Alternative Right does not have an essence, but it does have a story, a story that begins and ends with Richard Spencer. The story has four chapters. (more…)

George Orwell’s classic essay “Politics and the English Language” ostensibly teaches us how to write well. More importantly, however, it teaches us how to think well before we write. According to Orwell, slovenly thought leads to slovenly writing as much as slovenly writing leads back to slovenly thought. In this essay, Orwell derides the politics of his day as being imbued with conformity of expression and the distancing of this expression from Truth. (more…)
We have already had the occasion to point to the illusoriness of the claim that modern man, in general, has achieved an autonomy and self-consciousness he previously lacked. This illusion can in part be explained by the fact that attention today is primarily directed towards external conditions, to the disappearance of certain material limits to the freedom of the individual — (more…)
Part 2 of 2
None suffered more in war, none suffered more in “peace,” than German women and girls. Of all the war crimes committed by the Allies during World War Two, the massive rapes of helpless women and children were perhaps the most monstrous. Of course, an untold number of German women and children did not survive the violent, nonstop assaults. One million? Two million? Ten million? Since no one in power cared, no one was counting. (more…)
I find it astonishing that many of today’s younger White Nationalists have read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals but not Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. I do not wish to denigrate Alinsky’s book, which should be required reading for all political activists and organizers. But Hitler was a formidable political organizer as well, (more…)
William Joyce, more infamously known to history as “Lord Haw Haw,” the epitome of a British Traitor, was hanged on the basis of a passport technicality on January 3, 1946. Like the name “Quisling” (see Ralph Hewin’s excellent biography Quisling: Prophet Without Honour) much nonsense persists about Joyce. (more…)

Music can influence our emotions and the quality of our judgments.
Our emotions play a key role in how we reason. If we are emotionally out-of-whack, then we will not be able to reason as effectively. Music is the art form that is most able to dissuade us from thinking critically.

Wagner, Nietzsche, & the New Suprahumanist Myth, Part 2
Part 2 of 3
Given the concept of “tendency,” it is easy to see an intimate relation between the work of Wagner and of Nietzsche. (more…)
Some day a wonderful book will be written on the art of persuasion, a new sophistic. One may suppose that psychology will ultimately become as complete a science as geometry and mechanics are now. It will be possible then to predict the effect of an argument on a man’s mind as surely as one can now predict the eclipse of the moon. On the basis of this developed science will be built an infallible set of rules for converting a man to any opinion you like. (more…)
In his monograph, Zionist Propaganda in the United States (Pleasantville, NY: The Fayez A. Sayegh Foundation, 1983), the late Dr. Fayez Sayegh, a notable Palestinian-American anti-Zionist, identified several rhetorical tools that Zionists in America use to shape the political activities of Americans in order to benefit Israel.

History is always written by the winning side. This was never more true than in the case of Nazi Germany. Everything we know about it, or everything we think we know, is filtered through layers of illusion and propaganda. But a few years ago I had a rare opportunity to get an unfiltered view of it.
On Saturday, January 14, 1995, I saw an announcement of a series of films from Nazi Germany, being shown at UCLA. (more…)
