After several weeks of not having a Speaker of the House, the GOP have finally settled on a replacement for the deposed Kevin McCarthy. The lucky winner is Representative Mike Johnson of Louisiana. Johnson was first elected to Congress in 2016, which makes him the least experienced Speaker since John G. Carlisle in 1883. (more…)

The Counter-Currents 2023 Fundraiser
Support the Movement of Truth!
Like all journals of dissident ideas, Counter-Currents depends on the support of our readers. So far this year, we’ve raised $71,665.56, or 24% of our $300,000 goal. I want to thank everyone who has donated so far. (Please donate here!) Today we are announcing a one-week bonus for donating $120 or more (in other words, paywall and up): Aside from all the usual paywall perks, all donors who give at least this amount or more will also receive a paperback copy of Greg Johnson’s latest book, The Trial of Socrates. And now, Stephen Paul Foster offers a few words on why Counter-Currents needs your support. (more…)
Thoughts on an Unfortunate Convergence:
Doctors, Lawyers, & Angry Women
We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams. — Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States
And different statistics for violent crime.
Almost a quarter of the twenty-first century is “history” and, given how badly it’s been going, perhaps it’s time to pause and ask the question: Who’s to blame? (more…)
To understand the term “institutional racism” as a political device, one needs to distinguish its natural from its anti-racist meaning. For most people it denotes pervasive racial discrimination in an institution, but in its anti-racist meaning it denotes the opposite: namely, an institution’s practice of treating all the same without regard to race. How can this be? (more…)

Lessons from Robin DiAngelo on What It Means to Be White, Part 2
Lessons from Robin DiAngelo on What It Means to Be White, Part 1
Part 1 of 2 (Part 2 here)
It’s hard not to laugh at Robin DiAngelo, but not because she’s a comedian. Her textbook What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy began what is thus far a tetralogy of long sermons on race relations. Averaging a new title every three years, she came out with her most recent ethnomasochist manual back in June.
I’m going to the source with this one rather than the warmed-up leftovers. (more…)
Black Crowd in Chicago Laughs and Twerks as White Men are Beaten Unconscious
American blacks these days are full of murder and rhythm — they seem to love attacking white people and then dancing. I wrote last week about a black man shooting a white man dead in Miami Beach and then dancing, as well as a black woman in the Bronx shoving a white toddler to the ground and then merrily mincing away. (more…)
A fierce battle is being waged over American history, pitting liberals against conservatives over how to present our past to children. Conservatives argue American history should inspire a civic nationalism within children, regardless of color, and our history should present the Founding Fathers as colorblind liberals. (more…)
For two entire weeks, my social media profiles have been inundated with hand-wringing over critical race theory, which is now apparently fought over within the halls of education in America. Apparently, people have had enough with critical race theory and are engaged in a struggle to remove it from educational institutions. The push is remarkably non-partisan, but curiously white. (more…)
