You maybe heard about the black law professor who published an op-ed in the New York Times expressing the anguish he claims to feel when teaching his kids, as he feels he should, that white people can’t be trusted, and blacks can’t be friends with them. [Can My Children Be Friends With White People?, by... Read More

“I hid in my bathroom from anti-Semitic marchers in Poland – in 2017” screamed Sam Rubin in The Forward, (November 13, 2017) triggered by the sight of tens of thousands of Polish patriots honoring their country’s independence in a march last Saturday November 13. Needless to say, despite the clickbait headline and ritualistic invocation of... Read More
(The following is based on a speech presented by Carl Horowitz at the most recent annual meeting of the H.L. Mencken Club, Baltimore, Maryland, November 3-4, 2017. It was orginally posted at NLPC.org ) Why are corporations, especially those that provide information technology, promoting radical politics? It’s a question one increasingly hears these days. And...

Voting NO!! On Inexplicable DHS Pick Kirstjen Nielsen
You have of course heard of Trump Derangement Syndrome. That manifests when, in conversation with someone, you say something approving of our President, and the party of the second part turns purple and starts shouting while lurching from side to side, with steam coming out of his ears. I don’t of course have Trump Derangement... Read More

We’re Going To Be Detroit, Sooner Rather Than Later—But What About America?
VDARE.com readers have probably heard enough about Baltimore, which arguably lost its last intelligent public voice the week Henry Mencken died. Not that long ago, really…1956. But it isn’t often you get to watch a city die in real time. And you have to wonder: will this happen to America? Baltimore’s last few weeks have... Read More

For immigration patriots, there’s a Narrative in place to explaining the crushing defeat of the GOP throughout Virginia on Tuesday night. “Establishment Ed” Gillespie, whose entire life story is a kind of Pilgrim’s Progress illustrating the utter pointlessness of the Beltway Right, didn’t push the Donald Trump agenda and so Trump’s voters didn’t turn out....

Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen. My title is “The Alt Right Perspective.” I assume this means that I should tell you what the Alt Right is, and how Alt Righters see the world. That’s unfortunate because I don’t actually know what the Alt Right is. Casual acquaintances—neighbors and such—sometimes ask me if I am Alt... Read More
So President Trump’s chief of staff, former Marine Corps General John Kelly, praised Confederate General Robert E. Lee on Fox News: “Robert E. Lee was an honorable man. He was a man who gave up his country to fight for his state.” Those are accurate statements, so far as I know. They wouldn’t have been... Read More

On the campaign trail coming up to the 2012 election, Republican hopeful Herman Cain confessed to not knowing who was the president of, quote, “Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan.” I had a soft spot for Cain, although in retrospect it was probably just solidarity with a fellow 1945 baby and math geek, and desperation at the awfulness of the...

And The Historic American Nation
My title is an homage to Richard Perle et al’s famous 1996 paper outlining Israel’s geopolitical needs in the Middle East, which does indeed seem subsequently to have largely implemented by the U.S.) It’s telling that President Trump is under siege because of the alleged misdeeds, committed years earlier, of Paul Manafort, briefly Trump campaign...

Livin’ In A World Of Fools. As I prepare to post this diary, on the morning of November 1st, the news is dominated by a terrorist attack in New York City. A crazy Muslim, admitted for settlement in the U.S.A. under the craziest of our crazy immigration laws, murdered eight people using a rented truck.... Read More
International Elections Support Immigration Patriotism—And In Kenya, Obama’s Tribe Lost
Abroad, a week of elections. I counted three, each one interesting in an immigration patriot way: Czechia. On October 22, the Czechs had an election in their country, which so far as I am concerned is Czechia. This was a parliamentary election, to select members of the national legislature. The Czech head of state, the... Read More

See previous incidents under the tag “White Guy Loses His Job” Culture hero of the week was surely investment guru and gold bug Marc Faber, proprietor of the Gloom, Boom & Doom market newsletter. I can’t afford a subscription to that periodical— it’s $300 a year— but of course, as a fellow pessimist, I follow... Read More
As reported here by James Fulford on Monday, Austria’s general election last weekend was won by the center-right People’s Party with 32 percent of the vote. The center-left Social Democrats got 27 percent. Just a whisker behind them was the nationalist Freedom Party at 26 percent. The leader of the winning People’s Party is Sebastian... Read More

A Libertarian Strategy For Social Change
Speech delivered at the 12th annual meeting of the Property and Freedom Society in Bodrum, Turkey, on September 17, 2017 know the fate of the term “liberal” and “liberalism.” It has been affixed to so many different people and different positions that it has lost all its meaning and become an empty, non-descript label. The... Read More

The Inconceivable Evil Of John McCain—“Man Of Blood”
There is no hatred more complete and no malevolence more fanatical than that held by the American political class for the American people. The commissar’s rage against the kulaks, the jihadist’s fury against the infidel, the inquisitor’s wrath against the unbeliever, all of this pales in comparison to the genocidal bloodlust Senators and Congressmen have...

The weirdest aspect of the Open-Borders ideology is the sanctification of illegal aliens. They are holy objects, radiating a sublime, ethereal glow to those sufficiently spiritually refined to see it. We’re all more or less used to this where blacks are concerned. They dwell on a moral plane far above ours, and any negativity about... Read More

Headliner of the week for immigration patriots was President Trump’s immigration reform proposal, which he sent to Congress for their perusal last Sunday. The proposal is a very detailed 70-point list under three main headings: Border Security (27 items) Interior Enforcement (39 items) Merit-Based Immigration System (four items) Item-wise, the biggest heading there is the...

Several listeners to last week’s podcast took exception to my casual dismissing of the idea of racial separation—see “Taking A Knee”—Is Racial Separation The Answer? I had said that separation is no more feasible now than it was in 1862, when Abraham Lincoln urged it on the freedmen leaders he’d invited to the White House.... Read More

In post-America, holidays to honor what were once national heroes are now opportunities for iconoclasm. The black-clad communist terrorists known as “Antifa” have announced plans to spend Monday defacing and destroying monuments to the great Italian explorer who opened up America to large-scale European settlement [Antifa group plans nationwide ‘deface Columbus Day’ Actions for Monday,...

Enforcer For Democrats (And, Tacitly, Conservatism Inc.)
In the alien invasion movie Independence Day, the beleaguered President of the United States, hoping he can forge some kind of a peace which will at least allow the survival of the human race, pleads, “What is it you want us to do?” The alien’s response is simple. The mind of a rational person rebels... Read More

Genuflecting is in the news—football players, mainly black ones, “taking a knee” during pre-game playing of the National Anthem. The most recent example, from this Sunday: teams kneeling before the anthem, and being booed anyway–NFL fans booed players for kneeling before national anthem and standing for it | NFL players tried to show support for...

As deplorable as we Badwhites are, our medieval forebears were deplorabler. Here’s one: Geoffrey le Barbu (“the Bearded”), Count of Anjou, around a.d. 1065: Now that’s Badwhite!

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...

He Must Return To Lead It
[See: “If Only The God-Emperor Knew: Using Trumpism Against The Trump Administration” by James Kirkpatrick] He must have known what was coming. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, a pillar of the cowardly GOP Establishment, announced he would not be running for re-election on Tuesday [Republican Sen. Corker announces he won’t seek re-election, by Richard Lardner... Read More
The Germans have a word for it: “homonationalism“—polls suggest support among homosexuals for the immigration-patriot AfD party is higher than among Germans at large, basically because of gay-bashing by Merkel-imported Muslim “refugees.” [The gay men turning to the far right in Germany, By Atika Shubert, Nadine Schmidt and Judith Vonberg, CNN, September 14, 2017] We’ll...

President Trump opened his address to the United Nations General Assembly this week with a gracious tribute to those foreign leaders who had offered help with America’s recent hurricane and flood disasters. (No doubt these were connected somehow with the activities of the Trump administration. Don’t laugh: It was an article of faith in imperial... 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

Immigration patriots are fighting back against Donald Trump’s dalliance with a DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] Amnesty, and there’s evidence they’re having the predicted impact. But in the furor, the H-1B “temporary” worker program has been pushed to the background. Patriots need to keep their eyes on this program as well. Most VDARE.com readers... Read More
This is probably not even the worst case.
DACA, DACA, DACA. Now, when I see or hear that acronym DACA, I just start to seethe. DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] should have been scotched with a forked stick, like a snake on your patio, eight months ago, as Donald Trump promised would be done. Instead we’re stuck with the damn thing apparently... Read More

Steve Bannon’s interview with CBS’ Charlie Rose delighted VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow because Bannon confirmed Brimelow’s argument that Trump, contrary to general perception, did try to compromise with the GOP Establishment—Bannon even called it the “the Original Sin of the Administration”. [Breitbart’s Bannon declares war on the GOP, CBS News, September 10 2017] And it... 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
I’m going to go out on a limb here and argue that the campaign against Professor Amy Wax at U. Penn. (detailed here and here) may end up as a net plus for race realism. Here’s my argument. The original Wax-Alexander op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer [Paying the price for breakdown of the country’s bourgeois... Read More
Paul Ryan’s Plan Undercut Trump’s DACA Ban Would Unleash New Wave of Instant Democrats
The DACA business is getting interesting. Just to remind you, DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Barack Obama’s Executive Order giving renewable two-year work permits to illegal aliens under age 31 who claimed they were brought to this country by parents before age 16. Note the ages there. That age 31 was the... 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
This a Little Rascals reference--a franchise that last produced a picture in the 1940s.
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

Lessons for the Dissident Right
Throughout 2016, I would occasionally turn on the television to see how the punditocracy was responding to the mounting Trump tsunami. If you get most of your news online, watching cable news is frustrating. The commentary is so dumbed down and painfully reflective of speaker’s biases, you can always basically guess what’s coming next. With... Read More

The state of our military is a bit worrying. Those of us with family members serving have more to worry about than the average. I have no doubt our soldiers, sailors, and airmen will do their fighting best with any mission we assign them. But politicized leadership and stupid ideas about human nature may get... Read More
I’m in a very bad mood about President Trump’s failure to keep his promise to pull out of Afghanistan, but I must admit there are some glimmers of hope this week on VDARE.com’s key issue. This week has seen some action, some hints of further action, and some positive rhetoric on immigration. The most important... 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...

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
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
There is a striking long essay on Japan in the current (Fall 2017) issue of American Affairs by Asia scholar Michael Auslin. It opens with some lines from an eighth-century Japanese poem: Auslin then proceeds via a historical account of Japan’s sense of nationhood to some remarks comparing present-day Japan’s “exclusionary nationalism” with the rising...

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

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...
