It Wasn’t Blacks Who Got America To The Moon, They Actually Wanted To Stop It

The Perversion of Education and the Need for Radical Reform
Dr. Bruce Frohnen has written a strikingly topical article in The Imaginative Conservative. It is titled, "History, Hate & Hysteria: The Unhinging of the Academic Left," and it should be read by all educators, especially those in history and the social sciences. In it Professor Frohnen examines the current state of academia and of higher... Read More

On January 23, 2017, I asked, “Are Americans Racists?” I pointed out examples where racist explanations prevail over empirical fact. I did not write that there is no racism in America. I said that racism is not the be-all and end-all explanation of American history and institutions. The point I made is that racist explanations... Read More
Evening Star Pub in Brighton, 2012
A bar featuring $2 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon should never be empty. Granted, it’s a crap beer, but I’d guzzle dish water for two bucks, as long as it had some alcohol in it. So I was in The Dive for more than three hours, and during that entire time, only two other losers... Read More

If a prize were awarded for the worst policy idea, one that would waste billions in some futile quest for the impossible, the indisputable winner would be uplifting the academic bottom by fixing their “bad schools.” It is a seductive idea that never seems to die despite repeated failures; it even seduces free-market conservatives infatuated...

“Racist” is the favorite epithet of the left. Every white person (except leftists) is a racist by definition. As we are defined as racists based on our skin color, I am puzzled why we are called racists a second, third, and fourth time due to specific acts, such as favoring the enforcement of immigration laws....

Let’s not imagine that Trump can alone pick up his popularity ratings. Several days ago I picked up the Inquirer while in Philadelphia and saw on the front cover, next to a puff piece for Michelle Obama, a headline that Trump’s popularity is now down to 40%. Although I’ve no implicit faith in polls, given... Read More

A Muscular Speech, Exemplary People, and No Affirmative Action Poets!
The great news this week was of course the inauguration. Let me go directly to it. I’m just going to hand you off for a moment to a person who is much smarter than I am: Professor Robert LaFleur, speaking here in lecture 16 of the Great Courses lectures on the Analects of Confucius. Professor... Read More
The New York Times recently grumbled that, headline: Trump’s Cabinet So Far Is More White and Male Than Any First Cabinet Since Reagan’s. [By Jasmine C. Lee, January 13, 2017] Well, duh. Trump is the first President since Reagan who does not either subscribe whole-heartedly to the Diversity ideology or, like the Bushes, from a... Read More
The Hollywood Idiocracy has let out a primal scream to protest Donald Trump, the people's president. Members of the collective convened to convulse like Linda Blair in "The Exorcist," to the sounds of Gloria Gaynor in "I Will Survive." This particular protest was made up of mediocre females: Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Hailee... Read More
A known quantity in the faking department is Rev. Al Sharpton. In a video that gets considerable play on TV, Sharpton informs a rapt audience that “white folks” were cave dwellers when blacks were building empires and pyramids; teaching philosophy, astrology and mathematics. “Socrates and them Greek homos” were mere copycats, aping black civilization. As... Read More

Occidental Dissent visits Selma
I saw the Lügenpresse was driving the news cycle with Trump’s tweets about ‘civil rights icon’ John Lewis this morning, I felt like I had to do something. I’m sick and tired of John Lewis parachuting into my state for his annual photo ops. So, I got in my truck and drove over to Selma... Read More

Events on today’s university campuses will drive a sane person crazy. This is a world where privileged youngsters feel “oppressed” by America’s “whiteness,” where African American students are disrespected by buildings named after long deceased slave owners, where professors post trigger warnings to shield cupcakes from potentially upsetting readings and on and on. Unfortunately, student... Read More
TWO PIMPS IN A POD Boy, have whites done hard time under Barack Hussein Obama! To deliver his inauguration benediction, eight accursed years back, Obama commissioned one Rev. Joseph Lowery. Lowery is to poetry what Beyoncé is to music. Both were greatly elevated by the outgoing, déclassé first couple. Lowery’s anti-white inaugural jingle beseeched the... Read More

Why Isn’t HIDDEN FIGURES About “Nazi Scientist” Arthur Rudolph?
In the movie Hidden Figures Americans are being brainwashed with the Fake History that we couldn’t have made it to the moon without sassy black women doing the math. Paul Kersey has already pointed out that the flight path trajectory was actually developed by a white Southerner, Dr. Jack Crenshaw. But there’s an even more... Read More

A Tale Of Black Atrocity, MSM Lies, Justice System Failure–And Parental Agony
The Main Stream Media is working very hard right now to send down the Memory Hole the abduction and days-long torture of an 18-year-old disabled white man by four blacks (right)including one he pathetically thought was his friend, who (incredibly) livestreamed the atrocity on Facebook. Not coincidentally, there seems to be no national media coverage... Read More

This is one of those weeks where the inside pages of the newspapers (for those of you who remember newspapers) grab one’s attention better than the big headlines. The story that the comment threads are talking about: the four young blacks in Chicago who kidnapped and tortured a retarded young white guy. The blacks are... Read More

The Main Stream Media consensus on the War on Christmas has long been a denial that there is such a thing—coupled with an insistence that, even if there might be, no one could possibly consider it an important issue. 2016 did not cooperate with this narrative, since the year saw discussion of the War on...

Will Deport All Woman
I love it. Of all the things about Trump that our silly-ass Aunt Polly media might have considered–policy toward China, relations with Iran, reform of taxes–they seemed most agitated about…his sex life. Yes. Sure, he is a misogynist, homophobe, Islamophobe, fascist, Nazi, anti-Semite, and probably kicks his dog. Maybe a cannibal. But the truly horrid... Read More
Some random notes from the email bag on my December Diary, in reverse order from that in which the topics were diarized. 1. Brainteaser. Eight pennies, seven nickels, and three dimes. Worked solution here. 2. Stamping out oddity. Following the remarks about conformism—that is, about the liberal-progressive drive to flatten and homogenize our intellectual life—a... Read More

Reports Of Korea’s Self-Abolition Have Been Exaggerated
(Headline with apologies to Mark Twain). Immigration patriots have long been fascinated by nation-states that appear to be resisting globalist pressure to abolish themselves, like Japan and Israel. So some dismay greeted the report by Canadian anthropologist Peter Frost that multiculturalism had infected South Korea and that it was well down the path to Western-style... Read More
Unbiased Analysis
Having for decades been exposed to the hostility of radical feminists, to the enormous harm they have done the schools and universities and the military, to relations between men and women, to their ashen tediousness and endless fury, their victimhood, I finally began to yell, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take...

During the last few months I’ve seen on TV and read in Newsmax the views of an earnest American patriot, Zudhi Jasser. A onetime naval officer, distinguished cardiologist and more recently, an inspired leader of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Dr. Yasser has been second to none in denouncing Islamicist terror and in exhorting...

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em Perhaps the greatest historical archetype when we think about religious fanaticism and intolerance is the Spanish Inquisition, in particular the fearsome figure of Tomás de Torquemada, the first Grand Inquisitor. The historical backdrop is that, in the wake of the Reconquista, centuries of back-and-forth conflict between Muslims and... Read More
Christmas Market display, Leipzig, 2015
Few cultural traditions are as charming, beautiful and unifying as the German Christmas Market. For about a month, the center of each German city or town becomes a festival ground, where folks can eat, drink and enjoy each other’s company. The offerings of gluhwein, wursts, flammkuchen, fish stew, handbrot, cinnamon stars, carved figurines and tiered... Read More
"We’re going to be saying Merry Christmas a lot more. And we’re going to have fewer criminal aliens to contend with,” promised President-elect Donald Trump on separate occasions. Alas, Christmas and a criminal alien coalesced tragically, when Bob Clark, director of "A Christmas Story," was killed by a drunk illegal alien in 2007. Clark’s son,... Read More

If you have a good 45 minutes to waste on a long-winded Ta-Nehisi Coates think piece navel-gazing over his blackness in the final days of Black Run America (BRA), you will not want to miss “My President Was Black”: “In the waning days of President Barack Obama’s administration, he and his wife, Michelle, hosted a...

An interesting niche in the political Left has appeared over the last 18 months. They are a segment of the Bernie Sanders wing of the Left, socialists who oppose racial identity politics generally and the shaming of poor whites in particular. I call them the anti-anti-white Left. They are vehemently opposed to the Clinton family... Read More

If one’s reality derived entirely from the mainstream mass media, one would conclude since Trump arrived on the political scene America is awash in the modern-day plagues of Biblical proportions :the hatreds of racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and, no doubt, a few others to be named later. Further add how mere disagreement over... Read More

Unsung Black Women Were NOT What Got Us To The Moon
John Glenn’s passing at the age of 95 is just another reminder that the era of infinite possibility is sadly passing away. Glenn, a Marine fighter pilot in WWII and Korea, was the first American to orbit the earth in 1962. And with Glenn’s death goes the possibility of refuting one of the stranger tales... Read More

An enormous but seldom acknowledged paradox exists in American race relations. On the one hand, white America has gone to extraordinary lengths to help blacks: billions spent on anti-poverty programs and education; enacting countless anti-discrimination laws; interpreting laws and legal doctrines to give African Americans every possible advantage, obsessing over diversity and if these measures...

In my opinion, all political campaigns are identity based. Shaking the money tree to the tune of $1 billion + it now takes to run a national campaign demands access to big money, deference to capital, and a willingness to promote political loyalties on the basis of identity, not class. George Soros is not going... Read More

THE BLAZE TV host Tomi Lahren’s November 30 appearance on The Daily Show seemed like a flashback from a previous era. As in snarky liberalism’s golden days under Jon Stewart, the host, now Affirmative Action comedian Trevor Noah, attacked Lahren’s “I don’t see color, Democrats are the real racists”-style talking points. Noah batted aside these... Read More

Since Hillary has presumably gone to a home for used basilisks, we will perhaps hear less about gun control for a bit. As in, maybe, eight years. The unending drive to outlaw firearms remains fascinating in various ways, first in that it represents a desire for conclusive abandonment of constitutional government. This is far along... Read More
Did you know that Great Britain is going down the drain because the citizens want to remain British? Did you know that the British are inherently racist, jingoistic, bigots, and obnoxious because they don’t want to become Pakistanis, Syrians, Africans or some multicultural combination? Did you know that the British people voted to leave the... Read More
These Goodwhites Are Nasty Pieces Of Work
In case you’ve just emerged after a year and a half in a sensory-deprivation tank, Hamilton is a musical about Alexander Hamilton and the American Revolution, with an almost entirely nonwhite castand the music in negro modes—Rhythm’n’Blues and Hip Hop. Gregory Hood in his scathing review [‘Hamilton’ as the Ultimate Expression of the System, American... Read More
After a week managing the transition, vice president-elect Mike Pence took his family out to the Broadway musical "Hamilton." As Pence entered the theater, a wave of boos swept over the audience. And at the play's end, the Aaron Burr character, speaking for the cast and the producers, read a statement directed at Pence: "(W)e... Read More

Events following Trump’s victory should remove all doubt that American elections—and perhaps American life more generally—are increasingly being feminized. Hissy fits, snarky gossip and claims of dog-whistle hate are now major political weapons and millions in the Democratic coalition—women, blacks, gays, the campus-based cupcake nation—are desperately seeking sanctuaries. It would be hard to exaggerate this... Read More
Jeff Sessions For Attorney General, Steve Bannon For Pope!
Yes, the sun is shining, the birds are singing (those of them fool enough to stay around on Long Island in November), Trump’s in his tower and all’s well with the world. Latest news: Senator Jeff Sessions has been offered the post of U.S. Attorney General. Imagine: An Attorney General who doesn’t hate white people!Just... Read More
Hank Near Liberty Bell, 2016
America has become an eviscerated country draped in a gigantic flag. Day by day, its culture becomes more grotesque and obscene, a luna park of lunacy. Leached of essence, it burps up slogans, but who’s convinced? What define America, exactly? Paul Craig Roberts narrows it down to the Constitution and Christianity, “All Americans have a... Read More

America Is Now An Open-Air Prison For Whites
Mulatto Colin Kaepernick is lionized by the Main Stream Media for disrespecting the American flag, but the MSM, the plutocratic owners of professional sports teams and the parasitical multicultural grievance industry have combined to destroy white catcher Steve Clevenger for speaking out againstviolent black riots. What, you thought the U.S. was a free country? The... Read More

Hillary Clinton’s “deplorable” speech has yet again raised the issue of whether countless white Americans are “racists.” Of course, given the term’s inherently fuzzy quality, who can authoritatively say for sure? But, imprecision acknowledged, it is important to scrutinize how the liberal media elite has expertly twisted racism to demonize millions of whites who (correctly)... Read More

Programmed as they are in feminist myth-making, journalists, young and old, often ask incredulously, “Why would western girls travel to join ISIS fighters?” “ISIS men don’t believe in equality between the sexes.” At heart, neither do women. Not when hormones rage. Islamic State projects strength. Strength is an aphrodisiac. Women are biologically programmed to be... Read More

Encountering almost daily criticisms of the police by Pathologically Virtuous Whites of the sort one finds at Salon and NPR, many of these criticisms being nonsensical, I find myself wanting to ask these unpleasantly nice people: Do you know any cops?

The Jews can be a formidable enemy: devoid of scruples, they hunt in packs. Like aunts in P G Wodehouse’ fiction, they do not stoop to fair play: they go for the jugular. The hunt for disobedient leaders is their favourite national sport; and woe to a politician who crosses their path. They occupy commanding... Read More

Royce Mann’s Awful Video Shows Real Problem–Elite Ethnomasochist Brainwashing
Another week, another Muslim atrocity, this one on the French Riviera: 84 dead as I go to tape. These incidents inspire in me what I can only describe as calm despair. There’s something in the collective character of Western humanity that is awfully resistant to learning an obvious lesson here. To adapt Chiang Kai-shek’s famous... Read More
