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…)
Last May, I wrote an essay entitled “Weaponizing Money.” In it, I argue that racially conscious whites should act with urgency when it comes to money, and earn as much of it as possible. I dispel any notion that this is selling out — as long as the money can somehow contribute to the cause and not a person’s expensive lifestyle. I also argue that it is possible to make a lot of money and still be passionate about what you do. Any white person supporting white advocacy should, at a minimum, accustom themselves to living as cheaply as is reasonably possible and being as generous as reasonably possible. (more…)
Big Tech censored a major newspaper last week in the service of its preferred presidential candidate. The New York Post’s bombshell report about Joe Biden’s failson Hunter would’ve been the biggest story in the country, complete with reporters grilling the Democratic candidate and every other outlet making it front-page news.
But that didn’t happen. (more…)
Among the tedious mainstream talking points of the past few years has been the tone of political discourse in this country. This began with the candidacy of Donald Trump, during which his supporters unleashed hell on his opponents on social media. It continues now with Bernie Sanders supporters who, with similar passion (more…)
Talk about backfiring.
Flag-carrying Scandinavian Airlines, commonly known by their initials SAS, released a short video advertisement on YouTube this Monday. It was entitled: “What is truly Scandinavian?” Well, if you ask SAS, nothing. (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…)
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.
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.
Is there anything more satisfying than when liberal virtue-signaling goes horribly wrong? If you answered “no” to that question, then have I got the story for you.

“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
After another round of Twitter purges by the techno-Stasi, I felt a very real sense of loss that I could not quite articulate. (more…)
Jared Taylor & the “Alt Right Purge” on Twitter
On December 18th, Twitter deleted the accounts of Jared Taylor and American Renaissance and other groups considered to be on the ‘Alt Right.’ I don’t know why, but this affected me far worse than the mass deplatforming which took place after the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally this past summer. At least after Charlottesville, there was an ostensible reason for the mainstream’s reaction. (more…)

The Dismal Tide:
The Left’s Response to the Orlando Massacre
This weekend’s mass shooting at the Pulse, a gay bar in Orlando, Florida, provoked all the usual NAXALT casuistry and dissimulation from the agents of tolerance that we’ve come to expect. Omar Mateen, the “American” Afghan shooter, reportedly called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS, and mentioned the Tsarnaev brothers from the Boston bombing attacks, before committing the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. Mateen had also been under FBI investigation, but his father claimed that “homophobia” alone was responsible (more…)
By now you have probably heard of Tay AI, Microsoft’s attempt to create a female teenage chatbot that went rogue after less than 24 hours of exposure to unfiltered Internet users (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). When the company first launched Tay on March 23, 2016, her tagline was, “Microsoft’s AI fam from the internet that’s got zero chill.” The tech giant initially used huge amounts of online data and simulated neural networks to train the bot to talk like a millennial, which to them meant the bot should be a trendy imbecile.
