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.

Live by the Woke, Die by the Woke: The Cancelation of Socialism Done Left
I consider social media the biggest pestilence on the culture since the opioid crisis. . . and before that, the mass-dosing of the populace with antidepressants. . . and before that, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. . . but social media is good for a few things. (more…)
Twitter is done. After the suspension of then-sitting President Trump and successive ban waves, it’s obvious that Right-wingers have no future on the platform. What began as Left and Right competing for audiences on Twitter has ended with Twitter itself flexing its soy-infused muscles to purge all but a small and carefully curated number of high-profile (more…)
Polish Nationalism of the New Millennium: An Interview with Jaroslaw Ostrogniew
I have known Jaroslaw for a long time. He always impressed me as a highly erudite individual. We are both active in writing articles on the New Right and in various metapolitical organizations. We agreed to exchange interviews, so I will provide an interview for Szturm magazine and Jaroslaw for Reconquista. (more…)
Back in the year 2000 — before the advent of smartphones and the existence of social media in any significant sense beyond a humble smattering of BBS message boards — I and the other convicts at Oregon State Penitentiary caught wind of a new super-max prison they were building in the state’s remote eastern regions.

Another week brings us seven days closer to the mass graves they’re digging for us.
Do we dare ponder the moment the entire country realizes they severely overestimated black potential and that it’s too late to do anything about it?

What if we told talented content creators that they had to make one last video convincing people of the severity of the situation the West currently faces, but knew their videos would be played to millions around the world?
Technological Censorings of America for Make Benefit Glorious League of Anti-Defamations
I am old enough to remember a time where you could get instant laughs by saying jagshemash. It was a mythical era known as the mid-2000s. Life was simpler and slower, but it was richer than our hyper-digitized era. It was the last quarter of the Bush era; the defining political issue of the day was America’s foreign adventurism and imperialism. (more…)

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery . . . Except When It’s Not
About a month ago an anonymous user on 4chan – a Cantonese swallow’s nest recipe board, and one of the darkest corners of the Internet – suggested that his fellow users impersonate G-d’s Chosen People on Twitter to bypass Anti-Defamation League censorship. I was going to comment on the resulting controversy, but I figured someone else would beat me to it, and then forgot about it. (more…)
What to do about Tommy Robinson has long been a moral quandary for the Dissident Right. The purist position was, “No, the guy is a narcissist conman controlled by Zionist Jews” – which no one on our side really disputes.
When people talk about censorship on Twitter, it is often naïvely assumed that this must mean straightforward banning of users, or clumsy deletion of individual tweets. In fact, individual tweets are very rarely deleted, except in tandem with sanctioning the user responsible (usually with a lifelong ban, or a precursor to it). As for the banning of users, that is certainly widespread and occurs literally daily at this point.

Though the recent wave of social media censorship has been particularly harsh, those active in Rightist politics are well aware that the struggle between corporate and governmental information controllers and political dissidents is not new. (more…)
Tech censorship is an existential threat to the Dissident Right. No serious political movement can successfully operate if it is barred from social media. Even mainstream conservatives are being threatened by this, and Big Tech may sway the 2020 election against Donald Trump. This phenomenon only continues to get worse, as the recent YouTube purge attests.

On the Dissident Right, it can sometimes appear that we exist in a constant state of stalemate – that nothing is happening and that we are all just wasting our time. Progress and gains are being made, but slowly and imperceptibly – unless you know what to look for.
The blue-pilled are getting a tiny bit more purple every day. Things that were only discussed on the chans and message boards a few years ago are now out in the open. (more…)
Christmas at Counter-Currents

When the Sun largely vanished from the sky as cold and darkness overtook the world of our ancestors, they would band together. The warmth they conjured up to endure this time of year emanated from their turning their attention toward one another.
“There is no free speech in [the] real world and you will be suppressed for telling the truth that is not supported by the system.” — Nasim Aghdam

Antifa in New York City have doxed a White Nationalist, and this one is quite a find: an Orthodox Jewish doctor working at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx by the name of Dov Bechhofer. Bechhofer’s father is an Orthodox rabbi.
According to the doxers, Dr. Bechhofer made a number of comments at Counter-Currents. In the article, Spencer Sunshine, an associate fellow at the think tank Political Research Associates who studies far-Right movements, (more…)
Five hundred years ago this year (2017), Martin Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to the church door of Wittenberg. It was not the first time that theologians and teachers had protested against certain doctrines and dogma of the Roman Church. There had been, to take two notable examples preceding Luther, John Wycliffe and Jan Hus. (more…)
