Foundational for public trust in the American legal system to stand is the acceptance of occasional Type II errors as a necessary concession to avoid Type I errors. A Type I error occurs when an innocent party is found guilty on account of a misreading--or blatant rejection--of the evidence. A Type II error is when... Read More
Richard Spencer's outfit, the National Policy Institute, has a series of posts I contributed to. The literary portions are, for the most part, not mine. I'm an Austrian economically so the institute's description isn't the one I'd give, for example, but there is not in my mind anything implausible included.I've followed Spencer for a long...

No. The ideas and sentiments driving it live on, perhaps--as Swedes go to the polls to possibly make the Sweden Democrats the country's largest party--stronger than ever before. But the term itself may have been a casualty. The following graph shows internet search engine interest for "alt right" since January of 2016: Parenthetically, I realize... Read More
Z-Man devotes an hour to a treatment of the dissident right: In the intro, he mentions it's a phrase he's heard with increasing frequency as of late. Although it predates the phrase "alt right" that supplanted everything else in 2015, "dissident right" may come out on top yet. We're not there yet, however: These nebulous... Read More
One of the humorless, vinegar-drinking scolds dripping with supercilious contempt--the people has done what contemporary comedians spend so much time doing. He has looked at something genuinely funny and proclaimed 'that is NOT okay': normies refer to as "comedians"-- No, Apu was created based on existing stereotypes of South Asians. These stereotypes exist because they... Read More
Reuters-Ipsos recently released the results of a poll asking participants how allegations of sexual harassment would impact their senatorial voting behaviors. The following graph shows responses by selected demographic characteristics. Residual responses are "don't know" (N = 3,959): Note the question does not indicate necessary credibility in the accusations, let alone proof of their veracity.... Read More
It's easy to be frustrated by the president's lack of legislative achievement in his first year. As Z-Man puts it, we didn't vote for Trump so he'd give us a tax cut, we voted for him so he'd roll out the unwelcome mat. That said, Trump deserves high praise for bringing the diversity visa lottery... Read More
I want the cord cut. My wife pleads for baseball and NatGeo. So we've settled on Sling, a service that bills itself as "a la carte TV". It's $25 a month for our selections. Last night, through the course of a half-hour show, this ad played three times (at every break): Trannies, miscegenation, fake americans,... Read More
Junior, who wields the social media rapier exceptionally well, captures why Gen Z is going to be quite problematic for the cultural commissars indeed: A theme revisited frequently here is that being on the left in The Current Year means spending all your time and energy coming up with different ways to say "that is...

After she died of a heart attack likely brought on from being spooked by a car driven into nearby pedestrians in Charlottesville, Heather Heyer received a nationally televised funeral. The first three youtube results on "Heather Heyer funeral" are videos from PBS, ABC, and Fox News. Donald Trump praised her (for what, exactly, is anybody's... Read More
Everything white Democrats need to know in four short video clips:
++Addition++Gibson is part-Japanese. And the rally was in fact shut down and ultimately cancelled. --- There's a group on the West Coast called "Patriot Prayer", headed by a guy named Joey Gibson. He could pass as Puerto Rican. His group heavily utilizes traditional patriotic aesthetics--the American flag, the Gadsden flag, etc--and is now prominently signalling... Read More
The Nazism and the swastika have to go. A modest suggestion for a replacement: - The Nazis mostly killed Europeans. The Crusaders mostly did not. Repelling Saracens is relevant. Conquering Celts is not. - Many of those who make up the Alt Right's prime recruitment base had grandfathers and great-grandfathers who fought the Nazis. Vanishingly... Read More
Here's Ben Shapiro's silly assertion again: In obliterating it as decisively as possible, the insinuation of data cherry-picking was made. That's fair enough. Since Shapiro's statement struck me as so self-evidently false, the intention was to quickly show it as such. We won't have access to the 2016 presidential election results until the Spring of...

When it comes to Israel the US, Ben Shapiro is color-blind. He explains: "Color doesn't matter. Ideology does." Hmm, let's evaluate that. How pro-life blacks and whites voted in 2012: Oops. Let's try among blacks and whites opposed to same-sex marriage: Well darn. How about blacks and whites opposed to income redistribution: Ben's not licked... Read More
James Hodgkinson's facebook page is hastily taken down (though not before a celeritous Cernovich captured and archived several of his posts). Jeremy Christian's page--he's the man who stabbed two people to death in Portland a month ago--is still up. From the New York Times: Hodgkinson shared and quoted Rachel Maddow. Christian shared and quoted Liberty... Read More
It may be that militant atheism has turned conservatives away from secularism. It may also be that as conservatism has increasingly come to be associated with religiosity, secularists have found there are vanishingly few spiritually like-minded people in their ranks who are on the political right. Figures like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris have, as... Read More
As a closing follow up to the previous post, here is the very first image returned for a search on "racist": Here are the top results on "hate": There are no victims, only volunteers. This is what we're up against. Do not ever forget it.
I'm doing a little work on a textbook. The publisher has free access to istockphoto.com, a service I hadn't previously heard of but provides images similar to the Shutterstock pictures you've probably seen included in various online articles and the like. I was looking for an image of a shoplifter for one of the modules... Read More
On the politics of grievance, Ryan Faulk writes: The Cathedral isn't going to relent in pushing the Narrative, even as advances in genetic science require its high priests to wield Occam's Butterknife in ever more elaborate ways. Badwhites, however, are increasingly refusing to play along. For three decades the GSS has asked respondents if they... Read More
As a side note to the post on Jewish privilege, the top five states by proportion of total Google searches dedicated to "White privilege": The percentages of these states' populations that are non-Hispanic white are 94%, 83%, 71%, 82%, and 75%, respectively. Compare that to the 63% of the country as a whole that is... Read More
The phrase "fake news" is a beast that has, in a matter of months, been entirely turned on the people who released it on us. Our appropriation has been so thorough that CultMarxists are now insinuating that it originated on the alt right, inspired of course by Hitler: Having lost control of "fake news", they... Read More
A few comments: - Why did he contract with a major publisher like Simon and Schuster? Milo's celebrity has skyrocketed over the last year. He had become a powerful brand name in his own right, to such an extent that long before his book was even written--let alone published--it was a bestseller on Amazon. Simon... Read More
Support for Trump's immigration approach--continuing insistence on an impending wall, travel restrictions from eight mostly Muslim countries, targeted raids and deportations--among white male millennials (n = 719): If we group the three approves and the three disapproves and compare the two amalgamated categories, ignoring "don't know", we get 61.9% in approval, 38.1% in disapproval. That's... Read More
With street violence now a feature of the landscape anywhere Trump supporters gather for a public event, it's well past time we adopt the mindset that there are no victims, only volunteers. We know the nature of our opposition. To put ourselves in positions to be concussed, maced, or have our ribs broken is to... Read More
Robert Reich (via Steve Sailer): On the other side of the Atlantic, from the UK government and the crony capitalists it is enriching in the name of fighting hate (via Vox Day): The hivemind is using the same description everywhere. Googling "Breitbart far right" returns 941,000 results. Everyone is Hitler, everything is -ist or -phobic,... Read More
Unsurprisingly, men are generally more tolerant of controversial speech than women are, with homosexuality existing as a marginal exception. The subsequent graph shows the percentages of people, by sex, who do not believe representatives of the following groups should be allowed to speak in public. For contemporary relevance, all responses are from 2000 onward. To... Read More
As a follow up to the previous post showing how free speech is a white thing, note that free speech is an American thing. The US is still as good as it gets when it comes to speaking freely. The subsequent graph shows the percentages of people, by whether they were born in the US... Read More
The subsequent graph shows the percentages of people, by race, who do not believe representatives of the following groups should be allowed to speak in public. So in the first set of bars we see that 36.4% of whites do not think racists should be allowed to speak in public. For blacks, Hispanics, and Asians... Read More
... then Richard Spencer has given the Alt Right a lot of good publicity. He has in fact trebled the interest Hillary was able to generate when she mentioned the movement in a speech back in August: Looking at the search results by state, I got a chuckle when I saw Montana, Spencer's primary residence,...

Hamilton is hell for tradcon propositionalists. It follows historical events pretty accurately and some of the founding fathers are protagonists. There's no angle for criticism. It doesn't even occur to them that Pence showing up to such an ethnomasochistic production is regrettable.The best they can do in the current situation is point out that the... Read More
A lot to say about the election with an uncertain timeline of getting to it, so the subsequent series of posts may appear disjointed. - Heartiste asserted the following: That's undoubtedly a strong contender. Another possibility: And the one that hits closest to home if we're zeroing in not on cucks but on their allies,... Read More
Julian Assange has been neutered. He's been suffering some sort of chronic pain in his right shoulder for months. This presumed warning shot hasn't dissuaded him from the steady drip-drip-drip of Clinton campaign emails. Now it appears that under pressure from the US government, the Ecuadoran embassy in Britain--where Assange has been holed up for... Read More
Another small bridge connecting the races together was burned in the virtual world last week. A black guy I went to high school with, Brandon, wrote the following in response to the Charlotte shooting: The line about "the sins of your ancestors" is particularly remarkable because if whites ever lose the religiously-tinged sense of racism...

The latest Reuters-Ipsos results from a poll asking respondents what should be done about illegal immigrants in the US. Among likely general election voters, the breakdown is as follows: An outright majority--52.7%--prefers either that "all should be deported" or "most should be deported, with some exceptions". Back out the 8.2% who are "unsure" and we... Read More
Google search volumes over the last year: The Alt-Right hadn't even been seriously addressed by major media prior to Hillary's speech spotlighting it. All those people who've launched the term into the stratosphere will, if they move beyond the headlines of the last couple of days will find members of the Alt-Right where they are.... Read More
