City’s Own Report Confirms Charlottesville Police, Politicians Conspired to Suppress Unite the Right Rally
In the heat of anger, the very day the Unite The Right [UTR] rally against Confederate statue vandalism in Charlottesville, Virginia fell apart in blood and teargas, I accused the Charlottesville Police Department not just with allowing Antifa Leftist paramilitaries to attack Alt Right protestors, but also with attacking protestors themselves by using tear gas...

Mounting Proof That Alt Right Charlottesville Five Are Political Prisoners
At the end of August, VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow gave me three tasks: Learn the names and charges against all defendants in the disturbances surrounding the Alt Right Unite The Right rally on August; Break the defendants down into two lists—Alt-Right and Communist/AntiFa (what President Trump has accurately called the Alt Left); Given Heather Heyer’s...

On the Rise of Reactionary Hatred and How to Fight It
With the rise in public visibility of far-right-wing militants in the U.S. following the events in Charlottesville, much of the public is scrambling to understand just what this movement is and what forces are driving it. With much of the public discussing strategies for how best to fight right-wing extremism, the need for constructive solutions... Read More

Open debate in the West now hangs by a thread—even the social networking site Gab, the libertarian alternative to the increasingly Politically Correct Twitter, is now threatened with outright seizure of its domain for allegedly breaking Australian anti-discrimination laws. This may well be another example of the emerging Cultural Marxism-Big Business alliance: the crackdown comes... Read More

The eyesore presidential libraries
The social justice warrior charge to purge the United States of all monuments relating in any way to the Confederacy has been rapidly expanding to include the scourge represented by all white people all through history. The Founding Fathers who owned slaves will undoubtedly be the next ones on the block and the list will... Read More
Why Charlottesville Patriots Can’t Prosecute Antifa Thugs
On the morning August 12, I and some other 20 Alt-Right men, not a few of them VDARE.com readers and supporters, assembled in a hotel outside Charlottesville VA, in preparation to attend the now-infamous “Unite the Right” rally at Lee Park. Our intentions were simple: to hear the speeches, stand by their friends, and put... Read More

Hurricane Harvey has been an incredible disaster, and we should keep the poor and beleaguered citizens of east Texas and southwestern Louisiana in our constant prayers and do what we can to assist them. This is a moment of need that will probably continue for months. About this immense and unprecedented natural disaster, I found... Read More

Signaling the Greatest Narrative Collapse in Modern History
At this point I want everybody to forget the assassination of JFK because it’s too far back in time for even Boomers to remember many of the details. Forget 9/11 because we’ll never see the documents highlighting the entire story for decades to come. And pretty much forget the Michael Brown saga (just put it... Read More

Thank God for the Charlottesville Nazis! For a moment there, it was looking like we were actually going to have a few days to stop and reflect on the state of America without being subjected to some new form of manufactured mass hysteria. Seriously, just a few short weeks ago, as the corporatist ruling classes’... Read More

The unfortunate events of Charlottesville have revealed a very dangerous trend among the governing and media elites of America. There is almost full consensus that Trump made the unforgivable mistake of being morally equivocal in his condemnation of the two fighting sides. This view unites not only most of the elites of both parties, but... Read More
That was the month that was. If you are a native New Yorker you probably know — and if you’re not, you probably don’t know — the “August!” joke. Writing this on the last day of the month, I’m in kind of a Benny mood. What a month! August 2017 delivered one of those great... Read More
I have to begin this analysis by asking for your understanding for the fact that it will include a lot of full-length quotes. Under normal circumstances, I would have simply provided links, but considering the topic I will be discussing, and how some things suddenly “disappear” on the Internet, full-length quotes is probably the best...

NATIONAL REVIEW, Kevin D. Williamson and the Pointless Persuasion
Argumentum ad hominem is usually characterized as a logical fallacy. But that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. Of course, if the best you can do is call your enemies losers, you better not be a bigger loser yourself. If you’re trying to dismiss your political adversaries as irrelevant, you better be more relevant than they... Read More

During a recent interview at my local unemployment office, the man charged with my case looked at my résumé and expressed his admiration of American journalism. “You people just report the facts; here in France it’s nothing but opinion,” he said. I told him that while I agreed with the sentiment, his viewpoint was unfortunately... Read More

The Corruption of Charlottesville, VA
It has been nearly 24 hours. I’ve never been so angry about anything in my entire life. I had to unplug from the internet after I was blinded with rage when the news broke that the Charlottesville Police had issued arrest warrants for more of our people who were defending themselves and others: This is...

First, a quick disclaimer or, should I say, a clarification: When I speak of minorities, as I will below, I do that as a person who belongs to a long list of minorities. I was born in a family of Russian refugees. Right there, that makes me part of a (rather small) minority. Furthermore, I... Read More
Decades ago, a debate over what kind of nation America is roiled the conservative movement. Neocons claimed America was an "ideological nation" a "creedal nation," dedicated to the proposition that "all men are created equal." Expropriating the biblical mandate, "Go forth and teach all nations!" they divinized democracy and made the conversion of mankind to... Read More
It’s Totalitarian, It’s Captured the Democratic Party, and It’s Coming for America
There’s an interesting moment in Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’ book Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign when two obscure Democrat operatives who involved in her presidential debate-prep sessions, Karen Dunn and Ron Klain, “stressed that Trump, contrary to popular opinion, had actually put forth a lot of policy ideas.” (VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow had...

On the heels of his worst week in office, during which his crude comments about race were widely perceived as defending racism and hatred -- comments that sent some of his natural domestic allies fleeing -- President Donald Trump could not bring himself to articulate a mea culpa. Instead, he purported to defend as "some... Read More
Given that The Economist is a major journalistic voice for the globalist, nation-hating, open-borders, anti-Trump club of the Billionaire Left; and given that AntiFa is the “muscle” of that club; it’s not very surprising that when our President attacks AntiFa, The Economist pulls out all the stops. The cover of the current (August 19th-25th) issue... Read More
We learned, although we already knew it, that the US media has no integrity. We learned that the liberal/progressive/left holds fast to myths that justify hate. We learned that misrepresentation is the hallmark of American history. We learned that some websites that we thought were brave are not. We learned that Identity Politics has a... Read More
Laura Ingraham Tosses and Gores Him
One of the side-effects of these periodic moral panics that sweep through American society — Trayvon, Ferguson, Charlottesville — is that they unmask people — bring out their inner nature. Well, two weeks ago on the podcast I said some kind words, or at least not un-kind words, about TV talking head Charles Krauthammer. I... Read More
A peaceful torchlight parade--unlike Ferguson and Baltimore, nothing was set on fire.
The Retreat Of Law—And Law Schools
One problem underlying our present discontents—a problem that looms larger and larger in my mind the more I think about it—is what I think of as the retreat of law. Case in point: the August 11/12 protests in Charlottesville should never have been allowed to get so violent. There were a few hundred protestors on... Read More

Who did what to whom?
The hysteria unfolding regarding events in Charlottesville reminds me of the anti-Russia madness that has made front page news ever since Hillary Clinton discovered that she had lost the presidential election to Vladimir Putin. The media train is again rushing headlong into a terra incognita with its only goal being to bring down President Donald... Read More
Following the recent clashes between the alt-right and the group antifa, some libertarians have debated which group they should support. The answer is simple: neither. The alt-right and its leftist opponents are two sides of the same authoritarian coin.The alt-right elevates racial identity over individual identity. The obsession with race leads them to support massive... Read More

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the high point in a period of increasing Alt Right confidence and activism, and it was the moment that marked our first major clash with the globalist hydra. In the wake of Charlottesville, the System that we now find ourselves in... Read More

A Compendium Of Facts
H/T Pic StarTribune The pogrom unleashed following the Charlottesville event is now sweeping over the Right/Conservative blogosphere (including us) on an unprecedented scale. Silicon Valley moguls (whose ancestors appear rarely to have been present in America during the Civil War) apparently feel liberated by this protest about the Robert E. Lee statue to abuse their...

MSM (and GOP) Charlottesville Hysteria
My first take on the news comes right after I get out of bed in the morning, when I’ve retrieved my paper copy of the New York Post from the driveway to read over my breakfast oatmeal. The NYP’s not bad, as MainsStream Media goes. But last Sunday’s issue was straight-up CultMarx Narrative. “TERROR IN... Read More
"They had found a leader, Robert E. Lee -- and what a leader! ... No military leader since Napoleon has aroused such enthusiastic devotion among troops as did Lee when he reviewed them on his horse Traveller." So wrote Samuel Eliot Morison in his magisterial "The Oxford History of the American People" in 1965. First... Read More

So the de-Putin-Nazification of America couldn’t be going much better at the moment. In terms of emotionally manipulating people (and especially any heretofore wayward members of the American “left”) into forming a mindless, hysterical mob and running around like headless chickens branding anyone who didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton a goose-stepping Nazi, this past week...

The liberal/progressives, lost as they are in their emotionalism, do not realize that their rantings about white supremacists are also discrediting themselves and not merely their foes. The rest of the world doesn’t differentiate between good whites and bad whites. As one reader who wrote to me from India said, “All whites are guilty.” That... Read More
The liberal/progressive/left are enjoying their drunkfest of denunciation. I can’t say I have ever witnessed anything like it. These are the people who sat on their hands for 16 years while Washington destroyed in whole or part seven countries. Not being satisfied with this level of warmongering and crimes against humanity, Washington orchestrated a conflict... Read More
Last weekend, serious violence broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, when a group of white supremacist demonstrators was confronted by a group of folks who were there to condemn the message the demonstrators had come to advance. The message was critical of the government for removing a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee from a public... Read More
What the liberal/progressive/left is trying to do with Charlottesville is to associate Trump supporters with White Supremacists and in this way demonize Trump supporters so that they will not have a voice when Trump is overthrown in a coup. Or it can be put in a different way: Charlottesville is being used by someone to... Read More

President Donald Trump finally did what no-one in the Conservative Establishment would: calling out the Antifa (the “Alt Left” in his words) for sparking violence at the legally-sanctioned demonstration in Charlottesville: “You had a group on the other side that came charging in without permit,” the President said. “They were very violent” [Trump Says ‘Both...

Looking at a French nationalist website Boulevard Voltaire this morning, I notice a repetition of the conventional American media account of what occurred in Charlottesville on Saturday. The news commentary explained that a white racist had run down and killed with a vehicle a thirty-two-year-old “anti-racist” demonstrator, Heather Heyer, while injuring other anti-racists who were...

When the Dodge Charger of 20-year-old Nazi sympathizer James Alex Fields Jr., plunged into that crowd of protesters Saturday, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer, Fields put Charlottesville on the map of modernity alongside Ferguson. Before Fields ran down the protesters, and then backed up, running down more, what was happening seemed but a bloody brawl between... Read More
This past Saturday night, August 12, the media was filled to overflowing with nothing but lurid and hysterical accounts of the “violence” and the “massacre” by so-called “white nationalists” (alternately identified as “white supremacists” or “white racists”) inflicted on poor, innocent “counter demonstrators” in Charlottesville who were “protesting hate and bigotry.” That’s the narrative that...

Listening to NPR this morning confirmed what I already knew. Charlottesville is being turned into another nail in President Trump’s coffin. NPR had no interest whatsoever in reporting the actual facts about what had occurred in Charlottesville. The several “interviews” with the like-minded were orchestrated to produce the desired propaganda result: It was all Trump’s... Read More

Press and Politicians are Blind to the Truth
If you get your news from NBC, this is what you learned about yesterday’s Unite the Right rally: “Charlottesville White Nationalist Rally Violence Prompts State of Emergency.” That’s right: The problem was white nationalist violence. It was as if the demonstrators had behaved just like Black Lives Matter or masked antifa: looting, burning, stopping traffic,... Read More
The mask is off. There can be no further delusions nor any more comforting lies. “America” and the supposed “freedoms” guaranteed by its Constitution are as relevant today as the Holy Roman Empire’s claims to sovereignty or the head of the House of Stuart boasting about being King of England. In Charlottesville, Virginia, the police... Read More
