Politicizing Luz Long,
Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)
In addition to our sporting mission, we Germans also have the major political mission to fulfill. — Luz Long[i]
Carl Ludwig “Luz” Hermann Long (1913-1943) was a world-class German athlete who competed in both high and broad jump competitions and is best known for winning the silver medal in the broad jump at the 1936 Olympics.
He was one of the most visible ambassadors of sports in the Third Reich, sometimes even acting as standard bearer at sports events, and Long really was the ideal Aryan poster boy: tall, blond, and blue-eyed, with both a competitive and chivalrous streak to boot. (more…)

Survival of the Fittest:
Interview with Alexander Deptolla of Kampf der Nibelungen
We don’t have a large media empire, but we have alternative channels of communication through which we can spread information. We also don’t have a lot of capital compared to the corporate woke Left, but we have very committed and bright people on our side. Our people are creative, persistent idealists who can influence the younger generation in our direction.
The following interview is with one such creative person. (more…)

Strength Through Joy:
An Interview with Béla Incze of Légió Hungária
I met Béla Incze at the very intense sports camp of Légió Hungária (LH) in Hungary, as I previously wrote about. Béla is part of the group’s leadership. I was intrigued by his organization and its activities. I think a similar one could work in other European countries. Béla’s life story is also interesting, so I decided to interview him. We discussed sports, Hungarian politics, nationalist activities in Hungary, combat sports, the Hungarian youth, women, destroying a BLM statue, historical Hungary, holding demonstrations, and Viktor Orbán. I think we will hear more about him in the future. (more…)

Až moc bělochů v ledním hokeji
English original here
Kanadsko-americká Národní hokejová liga (National Hockey League, NHL) je z drtivé většiny bělošská. V roce 2011 to bylo 93 % hráčů a dnes není toto číslo o mnoho nižší. Hraje v ní asi padesátka černochů, což je podle všeho skandálně málo. Liga potřebuje podstatně zapracovat na své rozmanitosti, alespoň tedy podle údajně pravicového listu Wall Street Journal.
Představitelé NHL s ním bohužel nadšeně souhlasí. (more…)

Légió Hungária’s Sports Camp: A True Nationalist Fight Club
Salut! Salut! Salut! We had heard enough greetings, so we got out of the car in the village of Dömös and changed into military clothes. We were given sports shirts by Légió Hungária (LH) and quickly fell in with their group.
They set a fast pace walking uphill. We had been looking forward to it all the way in the car, and so, despite the difficulties — I hadn’t slept that night, my friend was coming off a 12-hour night shift, and another friend had been driving for several hours — we set off after them with a strong sense of motivation.

Quidditch By Any Other Name
In a most unlikely development, the legendary sport of quidditch caused a minor ripple in the press a couple weeks ago. I’m not making this up; it’s has been covered by Deadline, NPC News, and several other media outlets. Maybe it was a slow news day, even with the world coming apart? In any event, there’s a deeper lesson to this that perhaps the reporters themselves didn’t discern, a sober reminder that ingratitude is an ugly thing indeed. (more…)

Keep Sports Local!
I’ve been thinking about Canada a lot lately, mainly because of the truckers, and mainly because I’m preparing to review George Grant’s Lament for a Nation with my true blue Canuck friend Endeavour on Sunday’s Writers’ Bloc (10 PM CET, 4 PM EST, 1 PM PST). The review’s been a long time coming, predating the truckers. It even predates the current iteration of The Writers’ Bloc. (more…)

PC at the Bat
The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Mudville nine that day;
the score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play.
And then when Cooney died at first, and Barrows did the same,
a sickly silence fell upon the patrons of the game. (more…)
