Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts talk about how discovering leftist mistakes and misunderstandings drew them to the Right. Listen
If Americans can’t be trusted to understand factual information and make decisions about politics and policy, democracy is a failure. Many of our rulers think we mustn’t be exposed to certain arguments. If so, let’s abandon the pretense of self-government. Many white advocates take for granted that there is media bias against conservatives and whites.... Read More
Erick Erickson (Credit Image: Gage Skidmore via Wikipedia)
National Review published a statement about “America’s Crisis of Self-Doubt.” The magazine says the signers are speaking for only for themselves, but movement conservatism’s flagship magazine published it. The statement grandly declares that the signers are “devotees of America,” but fails to say what America is and who built it. It’s an uncertain trumpet rather... Read More
Politico recently reported that the Supreme Court will probably overturn Roe v. Wade. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted that the leak was a “call to arms,” and for progressives, it meant protests, threats, and property destruction. White advocates are divided on abortion. There are pro-lifers who may oppose it because some people think it is... Read More
After Marine Le Pen’s defeat, has French nationalism hit a dead end — or is it a new beginning? Guillaume Durocher, author of “The Ancient Ethnostate,” describes the difficulty the French Right will face in forming an alliance for the legislative elections to take on the resurgent Left. Listen
The New York Times used to be called “The Gray Lady” for its sober, restrained prose. The paper deserves a new nickname. The New York Times just published a three-part series primarily written by Nicholas Confessore on Tucker Carlson. Considering the thousands and thousands of words that went into it, there’s not much that is... Read More
Georgia Sons of Confederate Veterans legal counsel and spokesman Martin O’ Toole speaks with Gregory Hood about the fight to save Southern heritage — and how those who value their history can take the offensive. Listen
The Framers wrote the Constitution at a time when state churches were central to a nation’s identity. A state church gives an official answer to the most important questions about human existence. The First Amendment doesn’t (or shouldn’t) just stop the government from silencing us. It also implicitly bars the government from forcing us to... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts talk about the late Samuel P. Huntington’s “Clash of Civilizations” thesis. Listen
America’s most successful immigrant and African-American, Elon Musk, recently bought Twitter. His plan is to bring back free speech. This would be ideal for all American social media platforms. Unless the Constitution becomes completely irrelevant, the First Amendment ensures that we can speak without fear of the government. We have something our brothers on the... Read More
Not long ago, I wrote about the Washington Post’s plan to treat America like a conquered nation. The precedent would be Germany after World War II. The current regime in Germany (I refuse to call it a German regime) teaches its people to be ashamed, spies on the Alternative for Germany party, and regulates political... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts argue about when censorship is called for. The two discuss pornography, thinspiration, social media, and much more. Listen
“Optimism is cowardice,” said Oswald Spengler. We shouldn’t have false hopes. French President Emmanuel Macron will probably win this Sunday’s runoff election against the National Rally’s Marine Le Pen. Bookies in London give the incumbent a better than 90 percent chance. After the first round, President Macron’s lead grew. I have yet to see a... Read More
A mass shooting in a Brooklyn subway was briefly the most important story in the country. It dominated Twitter, and since the shooter mowed down New Yorkers the same day President Joe Biden pushed for more gun control, you could almost feel the momentum building for another moral panic about guns. However, those of us... Read More
Greg Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Elon Musk’s attempt to buy Twitter and try to tackle the question of where censorship fits into the left-right political binary. Listen
After President Donald Trump’s victory in 2016, the Left consolidated control over the media and platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. This victory was more important than Joe Biden’s win in 2020 and the Democrat takeover of Congress. Media power determines what is politically possible. Politicians dare not move outside the boundaries of “respectable” debate.... Read More
California’s “Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans” ruled that blacks who can prove direct descent from slaves are eligible for reparations. This decision is proof of America’s decline, but it offers ways to fight for white interests. This battle was inevitable, so let’s welcome it. It may be the start... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Friedrich Nietzsche’s book Beyond Good and Evil. Listen
Political change starts at the margins. Activists advance the cause, but may not reap the benefits. We clear the way for those who come later. But we can tell the truth and have fun doing it. President Emmanuel Macron’s appeal in the last election was his claim of independence. He started a new party and... Read More
Tesla’s “TecnoKing,” Elon Musk, reported Monday that he is the biggest shareholder in Twitter. He has a 9.2 percent, about four times Jack Dorsey’s share. Mr. Musk has hinted that Twitter needs to loosen up its censorship. He is also a Twitter board member, and promised “significant improvements.” If white advocates can express their views... Read More
Gregory Hood and Henry Wolff delve into the neo-Nietzschean musings of Bronze Age Pervert: the contrast between “yeast life” and higher life, the machinations of the “lords of lies,” and how to tap into Bronze Age vitalism. Listen
The war in Ukraine is a great inspiration for the center right. Douglas Murray says it has given the West its purpose back, and that Poland has become a “humanitarian superpower.” Francis Fukuyama, author of The End of History and the Last Man, says this could mean a “new birth of freedom.” American conservatives, always... Read More
What Will Smith once called “The Willenium” in the innocent days of 1999 has taken a dark turn. It’s either that or the Academy Awards, which were losing viewers, arranged a publicity boost from some black-on-black violence. Will Smith walked on stage and slapped Chris Rock after the comedian mentioned Mr. Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett... Read More
The GOP is putting up a surprisingly stiff fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, but that won’t save us from absurdities to come. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would vote against her, but she’ll still be confirmed by the Democrat majority. President Biden nominated her so she could... Read More
Chris Roberts and Gregory Hood discuss Richard Weaver’s influential 1948 book, Ideas Have Consequences and its impact on American conservatism. Listen
Elie Mystal, Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution, The New Press, 2022, 240pp, $16.83 hardcover, $14.74 Kindle If Elie Mystal didn’t exist, we’d invent him. I wonder if we did. In appearance, elocution, and legal reasoning, he’s the perfect straw man. Cable news takes him seriously. He can’t stop himself... Read More
Gregory Hood and Jared Taylor examine the War in Ukraine and the larger issue behind it — what makes a nation? What is civic nationalism compared to white identity? Most importantly, are whites in the United States a nation unto themselves? They then describe some of the first principles that will be needed for our... Listen
Chris Roberts: On its “About” page, the socialist Jacobin magazine highlights four endorsements. The most surprising comes from Chris Hayes, an MSNBC host whose politics are fairly mainstream (for a Democrat, anyway). But what he says is interesting, “I really like Jacobin — it’s very explicitly on the radical left, and sort of hostile to... Read More
The late Norm McDonald once joked: Stories warning against a bigoted “backlash” against Muslims are practically a journalistic genre. Steve Sailer calls it a “frontlash.” Such stories cast the non-Muslim population as brutes always on the brink of a pogrom against the Mohammedans. The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, rather than inciting Americans against Muslims,... Read More
Greg Hood and Chris Roberts discuss what the identitarian position on the Russo-Ukrainian War should be. Listen
“My unorthodox thesis can be summarized in one sentence: Excising war from our historical horizon has led to the disappearance of virility from Western European societies.” So writes Dominique Venner in A Handbook for Dissidents. War has indeed returned to Europe. Europeans are killing each other in another Western civil war. According to Vladimir Putin,... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss American foreign policy and the upcoming elections. Listen
President Donald Trump spoke where he said “it all started,” alongside the “great patriots of CPAC.” Donald Trump’s annual CPAC talks — no doubt allowed by organizers because of The Donald’s celebrity status — built his credibility in the years before his campaign. The last time he didn’t speak at CPAC was in 2016, when... Read More
Greg Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the conflict in Ukraine and how it relates to American theories of prosperity, democracy, globalization, and identity. Listen
The greatest source of fear is the unknown. Few things are more terrifying than an arbitrary justice system. That’s what we face in America today. A jury convicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddy” Bryan of federal hate crimes against the late Ahmaud Arbery. This may seem redundant because they were already facing life... Read More
Guest host Jared Taylor and guest guest Gregory Hood discuss the great French nationalist philosopher and historian, Dominique Venner. Listen
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Albert Camus’ literary triumphs and philosophical beliefs, especially in contrast to Jean-Paul Sartre. Listen
It’s one thing when journalists want people deplatformed. Countless articles and columns are veiled demands for censorship. It’s far more serious coming from the White House. Spotify recently posted warning labels on episodes of Joe Rogan’s podcasts about COVID-19. “So, this disclaimer, it’s a positive step,” said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “but we... Read More
Racist. No word has such power. It can end careers, embitter families, and provoke amazing displays of cowardice. But the word means nothing anymore. It’s doubtful if it ever did. Until recently, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) had a definition of racism most Americans would probably agree with: “Racism is the belief that a particular race... Read More
Justice Stephen Breyer of the Supreme Court’s liberal wing is retiring. This gives President Joe Biden a chance to nominate a “progressive” justice. He has promised to choose a black woman — affirmative action at the highest levels. New York Times columnist Charles Blow said there should be a nominee like Thurgood Marshall, whose “entire... Read More
Almost two years ago, I [Chris Roberts] started writing movie recommendations for American Renaissance readers. The quarantines had just begun and I thought people would be spending a lot more time at home for the next month or two. I got the timeframe wrong. For those of you once again stuck at home, I recommend... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss Meditations by Marcus Aurelius and his Stoic philosophy. Listen
After the September 11 terrorist attacks, there was a debate over showing violent footage on television. It might provoke anger against Muslims. The National Interest ran an article last September 12 saying that there had been too much media coverage, and it drove Americans into an “angry,” warlike mood. Most people understand that showing people... Read More
Gregory Hood and Chris Roberts discuss the 1960s leftist student group Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), how it fractured into violent and non-violent groups, and how so many of their “radical” ideas are now in the mainstream. Listen
Without myth, we aren’t a people. We’re just consumers. Our rulers appear to want it that way. Friedrich Nietzsche called the state the “coldest of the cold monsters.” He rejected the idea that the state created a people. He championed the Germany of artists and scholars, the German nation defined by culture that predated Bismarck’s... Read More
Historically, the opposition party wins the midterm elections. President Joe Biden has low approval ratings and would probably lose to Donald Trump if a rematch were held today. Americans are suffering from inflation, crime, and empty shelves at food stores. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has sunk President Biden’s “Build Back Better” legislation. The Commander-in-Chief’s attempt... Read More
One of the great flaws of the Anglosphere is litigiousness. Almost everything important is decided in court. This shows the high trust Anglos have in their institutions. Unfortunately, these institutions can be turned into sophisticated tools for white dispossession. The court system has been corrupted and whites need to recognize this. Whites just got a... Read More
Greg Hood and Chris Roberts talk about one of their favorite novels, A Confederacy of Dunces, and how it relates to America half a century after it was written. Listen
On January 6, 2021, there was a riot at the Capitol. It was minor compared to those tolerated by government officials and reporters over the previous year. The real outrage was Ashli Babbitt’s death, but one year later, regime media don’t care about her. The same person wrote an article excusing the social media attack... Read More
