As the protests become more marginal and zmagar-dominated, they are also drawing an ever increasing mass of Russian Bioleninists. Not very important in the grand scheme of things, but it's amusing to observe. *** The Encounter: The liberal hipster Yuri Dud', who was recently in Poland, also ran into some Based Polish Nationalists there: But...

Twitter HBD buff Ion Râmaru (Romanian, so not white) draws attention to the very diverse makeup of the Mankind Quarterly's editorial board. That's at least 12/20 who are not white, though it should really be 16/20 on account of the two Russians and two Serbs not being white either. Indeed, would this not constitute even... Read More
This is perhaps the most impressive product in this genre that I have seen to date.
Kievan Rus was a historiographic term invented by 19th century historians in the Russian Empire. The people in Rus' ("na Rusi"), or the Russian lands ("Russkaya zemlya"), from Galicia to Vladimir-Suzdal called themselves "Rus." "Rossiya" is nothing more than than Greek for Rus' ("Ruthenia" in Latin). That cleared up, I really don't really understand what... Read More
Why should we choose freaks like Tikhanovskaya? Her IQ is 82 points - that's just a bit higher than an orangutan's! - Margarita Simonyan. Didn't post it yesterday as I thought it was fake, but it's a real quote and our Margo is much more based than we could have ever imagined. In fairness, while... Read More
Blavatskyy, Pavlo. 2020. “Obesity of Politicians and Corruption in post‐Soviet Countries.” Economics of Transition and Institutional Change 9 (July): 81. Obesity => corruption QED. "Correlation doesn't equal causation" is for nitpicking losers. Ringing endorsement of powerful Bronze Age Pervert proposal to filter aspiring politicians by physical prowess and physique.
Didn't blog about it at the time, but just a bit more than a week ago, Putin formally signed Russia's new immigration law easing citizenship requirements for Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and Kazakhstan nationals (something that I long advocated). It's not an open borders project (the kneejerk hysterics of a few anti-Putin Russian nationalists aside). It's... Read More
The US has a problem. It has too many statues of evil white men, such as the Confederate generals, the Founding Fathers, Columbus, and even the first governor of Russian Alaska, Alexander Baranov. You may not personally consider it a problem, but plenty of your compatriots do, and they're usually more influential than you. Sucks... Read More
New monument to the Soviet soldiers who perished in the Battles of Rzhev (1942-43) during the Great Patriotic War. Putin and Lukashenko attended the opening ceremony in Rzhev yesterday. The lower half of the statue dissipates into a flock of cranes, referencing a famous song that is based on a poem by Dagestani writer Rasul... Read More
The action, in which LGBT activists draped their rainbow flag over the Motherland statue in Kiev, is called "Mother Understands and Supports." Ukrainians are about as homophobic as Russians, according to polls. But the cargo cult is more important. The wars in the comments - or khokhlosrach, as they are known in our parts -... Read More
Considering the type of people who take him seriously - hard right conservatives, Gog/Magog cultists, "Final Phase" conspiracy theorists, White Nationalists - it's pretty funny that this guy's complaints towards the USSR boiled down to them not letting him race mix with Indians.
Ol' Terrell J. Starr's... star... is shining bright! No doubt he deserves his six figure book deal, his struggles with elementary geography regardless. Because yes, Ukrainians now confirm, they were oppressed POC too. The face of the oppressed: Nor were Ukrainians the only othered POC in the former USSR. Why hello, fellow POC! Hello hello!...

Racists, Russians, gamers, and now Karens are America's most persecuted minority. So if you tick four of those boxes, you can be sure that the Man will really be out for you. So far as I know, this is the first time in history that Valve - the parent company of Steam, the world's most... Read More
Aso: low virus death rate thanks to Japanese superiority Based. Though I suppose that some home-grown cucks don't see it that way: Aso's remarks instantly drew condemnation from opposition lawmakers for being tone-deaf and promoting national chauvinism. “Could you be any more condescending, Minister Aso?” Renho, a vice chair of the Constitutional Democratic Party of...

The disgustingly obese Boomer Bannon, who has been sent packing by European nationalists, has gotten himself some Chinese emigre billionaire sugar daddy and is now making weird videos astroturfing the "New Federal State of China." What I take to be the new state's proposed anthem: This is reaching levels of cringe and Guaido that were... Read More
The Treaty of Trianon formally expired today, correcting one of the very greatest injustices of world history, which stranded three million ethnic Hungarians outside their country's borders. Worst day of every Hungarians' life is now formally annulled! Even as I write, reports are coming in that "Can't Turban the Orban" has ordered his armored divisions... Read More
This Bogdan Vechirko story is just perfect on so many levels of "meme convergence": > Be Ukrainian nationalist from Vinnytsia. > Leave for work in a Western country, just like any Ukrainian nationalist would given the chance. > Work intermittently as truck driver in US since 2015. > Become #MAGA chud. > Launch your very...

One popular trope is that the US splits into its constituent "American nations" in the aftermath of some disaster or apocalyptic event. Alfred Twu has been tracking this for Corona, best thread here. Logical. In a country where states have so much power, much of the response would likewise be at the state level, with... Read More
Virgin Western "Russia expert" ranting about Putler suppressing the democratic opposition vs. the Chad loremaster of the most obscure and esoteric metapolitical sects. There is unironically more value in this one meme by /u/roastedfroggo than in dozens of Western political science/"transitionology" books and articles, which are in net terms negative value added. (That is, you... Read More
One interesting thing I observed is that there doesn't seem be any discernible ideological pattern to the decisiveness/quality of Corona responses across the world. Trump and Bolsonaro have performed atrociously, dismissing Corona as a hoax or a nothingburger before switching to proclaiming its too late to do anything anyway and "What About The Line", before...

Leading intelligence researchers have just forwarded me this graph from an upcoming article on the relation between cognitive ability and sentiment towards Russia that will soon be published in a high impact psychology journal.
Greenland was infected a few days ago. Madagascar closed its ports. But their heresies did not avail them, for Our Lady will not be denied her mite. Her loyal servants took her munificent blessings to the people of Madagascar. So ensuring that the entire world is soon set free. Pray for your salvation while time... Read More
Though there have been some other, decidedly minor, world events that have pushed these developments off the front pages, we may confidently label March, 2020 as the final death of Russiagate v1.0 - the blockbuster hit that has spawned two official sequels to date, as well as an untold number of fan-made derivative works. First,... Read More
/ourgal/ has now hit: (1) AIPAC: (2) CPAC: (3) NATO: How can one virus be so incredibly based?
From a world-historical perspective, the bald syphilitic gave Germany a second chance at European (and world) domination. Which they screwed up, to be sure... but they couldn't have even made a go of it otherwise. By nullifying half of Russia's potential population even just within its current borders, and the vast bulk of its potential... Read More
Newspaper "Signal", Nov 13, 1917: Russia is ruled by a lunatic! We demand an investigation into the mental state of the "autocrat" Lenin! Reps of Army Committee of South-West Front said he's a madman after a conversation with him. … Save Russia from him … Or he will doom us!  
As of this February, there is a 90% chance that the US President come 2021 will be Trump, Bernie, or Bloomberg. One of whom has been branded a Russian "asset" for the past 5 years. One of whom spent his honeymoon in the USSR. One of whom publicly sympathized with Russia's incorporation of Crimea back... Read More
Map of the Mongol Empire at/near its territorial peak. Map of the various variants of stuffed boiled dumplings (credit). Exogamous communitarian family systems (in red). The maximum territorial extent of Communism.
For years the now defunct Iron March forum was widely regarded as the most hardcore Neo-Nazi hangout on the Internet. It spawned the "Atomwaffen Division", which subscribed to a sort of Far Right Posadism that promoted race war through the cleansing fires of nuclear destruction. Its members wracked up five murders, a most impressive tally... Read More
Yesterday, something much more important than Brexit took place. It was the 30 year anniversary of McDonald's opening its first restaurant in the USSR and selling Big Mac Meals for three rubles to massive throngs of famished Soviet citizens. That was the price that your average samogon-swilling sovok was willing to sell away the country... Read More
Izvestia reports that Jarosław Kaczyński now also wants reparations from Russia. In an interview with German tabloid Bild, employer of the famous "Jihadi Julian" Röpcke, the PiS leader said: Though I'd say more, I already pretty much said everything that needs to be said a few days ago. Russia should pay up whenever the Poles... Read More
After an epic search for one of the ten Teremok restaurants in Moscow that serve the Немясо (Beyond Meat) patty... ... I finally found one and sampled it. It was OK, I guess. Quite edible. Might even be good with condiments. But it tastes *nothing* like meat, contra MSM pundits. Consequently, I am now convinced... Read More
Tessa Violet is an American singer of modest popularity and talent who kick-started her career by video-blogging and lip syncing songs. Here is her most popular music video to date: This isn't exactly a pop culture blog, so why am I writing about her? Basically her imperial flag-colored hair has made her into a minor... Read More
On April 15, BTC was ~$5k. Now it's around $13k. You can make good money by reading me. My long-term prediction is that Bitcoin will remain within the $10-20k range for the next couple of years, but will converge to an ultimate price of $100k within five years.
Albeit with a minor adjustment for reality that was not to the advantage of our unfortunate patient. Dmitry Tymchuk was a svidomy activist and "information warrior" whose Facebook postings were followed by 270,000 people. He was also a friend of the obese toad Anton Gerashchenko, who set up a website hosting a hit list that... Read More
I knew the Alt Lite was a shit show, but this is "wow just wow" territory. Here is the expose by Milo Yiannopoulos on the Alt Lite's video editors Caolan Robertson and George Llewelyn-John: ‣ Stole Bitcoin worth $20,000 from Tommy Robinson, while the activist was in jail, to fund their jet-set lifestyle ‣ Booked...

Trump is in London. The Britbongs aren't taking it well: . The London Museum apparently wants to add the Trump baby blimp to its exhibits. London Mayor Sadiq Khan - having presided over a large rise in violent crime and said that terrorism is "part and parcel of life in a global city" - has... Read More
Guardian: Ukraine president offers Russians citizenship in snub to Putin I take back everything bad I ever wrote about Zelensky - not when it emerges that he is my faithful reader! I strongly approve of the Ukraine giving out passports to Russians. No oppressed Russian should be denied the opportunity to participate in Ukraine's vibrant... Read More
This is one of the most powerful websites I have ever encountered. Can anything possibly come close to its power levels?
Then follow the stereotypes. They will never lead you astray: Alexander Kireev: Popularity of "incest" searches in Russia. Regions most interested in chasing sister's skirt: Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia. So much for Caucasian sexual "morality" (but we knew that anyway). Least interested: Karelia, Moscow, Saint Petersburg. Worldwide, twice as many Central Asians - especially Tajiks and... Read More
How shall we put this... royally cucked?
One of the most memorable anecdotes from Stephen Cohen's Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives is where he recounts a visit by Egor Ligachev, probably the second man after Gorbachev in the late 1980s USSR, to New York, in which he amazed his interlocutors by repeatedly asking who was responsible for organizing the food supply to...

So I finally have all the books I own in one physical location. There's ~100 of them. My stock of physical books actually peaked in the mid-2000s, at ~500, before I left Britain for the US. The appearance of e-books and transportation costs-forced elimination of my more r-selected books has steadily whittled down that number,... Read More
Epstein's book about race differences in sport published in the West vs. a Russian translation of Dutton & Lynn's book about race differences in sport published in Russia. :LOL:
How can you identify a cargo cult culture? (Or, as Thorfinnsson elegantly calls them, "fake and gay countries"?). Well, here's one thing I notice about many of them. They're obsessed - obsessed! - over naming conventions for their countries and cities in foreign languages. For instance, precisely nobody in The Netherlands - to the best... Read More

About Anatoly Karlin

I am a blogger, thinker, and businessman in the SF Bay Area. I’m originally from Russia, spent many years in Britain, and studied at U.C. Berkeley.

One of my tenets is that ideologies tend to suck. As such, I hesitate about attaching labels to myself. That said, if it’s really necessary, I suppose “liberal-conservative neoreactionary” would be close enough.

Though I consider myself part of the Orthodox Church, my philosophy and spiritual views are more influenced by digital physics, Gnosticism, and Russian cosmism than anything specifically Judeo-Christian.
