As we enter the second decade since the demise of the Soviet Union as a political entity, Soviet propaganda is as influential as ever. Indeed, Soviet propaganda will influence the success or failure of the new Bush administration and could even ultimately decide the fate of the two-century-old “American experiment.” In the struggle for world...

In 1973 the prize-winning French novelist Jean Raspail published The Camp of the Saints. An English language edition appeared in 1975 to general acclaim. Publishers’ Weekly declared the book to be “remarkable . . . riveting.” The Wall Street Journal‘s Edmond Fuller said, “sensational.” Linell Smith inThe Baltimore Sun said, “no reader will remain unaffected...

“President Bush might succeed in building an anti-missile defense system and invigorating our economy with a tax cut. But does it really matter?…” The rot in American intellectual life has reached a putrid state. Nothing better illustrates the decline in education and the ability to think than the argument over “affirmative action.” Affirmative action means... Read More
University of California President Richard C. Atkinson is caught between a rock and a hard place. In order to remain politically correct—a requisite for keeping his job—he had to engage in hate speech and hate thought, offenses that mandate sensitivity training if not prosecution. California’s Proposition 209 forbids privileged university admissions on the basis of... Read More
he 1964 Civil Rights Act was passed to reaffirm the constitutional requirement of equality in law. Paradoxically, the Civil Rights Act destroyed equality in law and put in place a caste system. The lack of response by the U.S. Department of Justice to outbreaks of black-on-white violence in Seattle, Washington, and Cincinnati, Ohio, reveals an... Read More
pportunity to offset the effect on elections of the black vote by gaining the Latin or Hispanic vote for Republicans. From this standpoint, amnesty for Latin illegals and permission for Mexican trucking companies to deliver goods in the U.S. make political sense. However, the combination of amnesty and quotas spells the end of the American... Read More
A self-described “very conservative” gentleman, [name withheld by request], takes exception to my column, posted on VDARE, about the white husband in Idaho being arrested for coming to the defense of his wife, who was assaulted by a black man. This gentleman says that his anger at the prosecutor turned into anger at me after... Read More
A tragedy for thousands of Americans, the September 11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. were a boon for Eurostatists, Eurocrats and other assorted architects of a European state. The superstatists quickly put their own spin on the attacks, arguing that their success proves the impotence and pointlessness of national sovereignty. As British European Union advocate... Read More
Liberal-stifled patriotism, pent-up for decades, has burst forth in response to the events of September 11. It is in fashion again to be a proud American. Patriotism rallies people to the support of their country, granting government new and expanded powers to respond to terrorists. This is understandable, but a headlong rush is no way... Read More
Do you know that there are 15,000 Muslims serving in the U.S. armed forces? Are you aware that the U.S. military has Muslim Imams? Following September 11, Captain Abd Al-Rasheed Muhammad, Imam of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C., asked the North American Islamic Jurisprudence Council if it is permissible for Muslim troops... Read More
You are not alone if you think it is odd that we are killing Muslims in Afghanistan, but are afraid to profile Muslims in airport security. President Bush has won the war against the Taliban, but his transportation chief has taken the bloom off the victory by making air travelers feel like criminals in their... Read More
The most important headline of 2001 came on the last day. It was in the Washington Times and read:“Daschle defends 60-vote majority.” Thus did Tom Daschle, Senate Majority Leader and Democrat from South Dakota, raise the ugly head of tyranny. Daschle has decided that Republican issues along with President Bush’s nominees to executive branch positions,... Read More
White males are suffering from long-term deterioration in lifetime income growth and job security, according to a study, “Divergent Paths,” just released by the Russell Sage Foundation. The study by four academic sociologists and statisticians compares the wage growth and job security of young white males who entered the labor market in the late 1970s... Read More
At birth, a fresh idea encourages thought, but not all ideas age well. Some turn into shibboleths that block debate. Today shibboleths rule over thought. Consider the idea of “the public interest.” This idea was once useful to restrain the arbitrary power of kings. But today every self-serving politician and interest group claims to be... Read More
Second in a series on America’s imperiled future.[I, III, IV, V, VI] Who are we? What are we? Fifty years ago there was only one answer. We were Americans, and most knew what that meant. When American principles were found lacking in practice, reformers stepped forth. In those days, reform meant to apply the principles,... Read More
Is the multicultural campaign really about diversity? Or is it about stamping out Western civilization and the “white race” itself? College students will tell you that a university education today is a guilt trip for whites. The purpose is to prevent whites from appreciating and absorbing their own culture and to make it difficult for... Read More
Dr. Noel Ignatiev, Harvard academic and founder of the racist magazine, Race Traitor, wants “to abolish the white race.” Dr. Ignatiev [[email protected]] wants to abolish whites, because he believes whites are loyal to their race and advance their interests at the expense of black people. Apparently, he sees no harm in other races being loyal... Read More
What does immigration cost us? At a recent debate in Arlington, Virginia, Harvard Professor George Borjas quoted an estimate of $70 billion a year. He noted, however, that the cost is not evenly distributed. Some communities are heavily impacted with swollen welfare budgets and hospitals on the brink of bankruptcy. Immigration is estimated to cost... Read More
For three decades the United States has been descending into a feudal legal order. In the ancient feudal system, the differential rights in the legal system were class-based. In the new feudal order, rights are determined by race, gender, and handicapped status. In the old feudalism, the people with the most rights were descendants of... Read More
Just before Thanksgiving the editor of the Nashville newspaper, The Tennessean, and Vanderbilt University professor Jonathan Farley teamed up to commit a hate crime. Farley wrote, and the Tennessean published, an article that attacked the United Daughters of the Confederacy for what Farley calls “honoring traitors.” Farley’s article brims with hatred of Confederate Army soldiers...

Christmas is a time of traditions. If you have found time in the rush before Christmas to decorate a tree, you are sharing in a relatively new tradition. Although the Christmas tree has ancient roots, at the beginning of the 20th century only 1 in 5 American families put up a tree. It was 1920... Read More
The U.S. has the most sophisticated financial markets in the world. Yet, its financial reporters and financial policymakers are anything but sophisticated. In a recent Wall Street Journal article (Dec. 19), reporters Jeffrey Ball and Karen Lundegaard confused depreciation–a business expense–with a reduction in the price of a consumer product. Business owners, the journalists reported,... Read More
Are democracies democratic? Or do elites determine political outcomes regardless of majority opinion? Look at last weekend’s massive anti-war rally in London. Random interviews with participants revealed that many were first time marchers who were protesting not merely war, but Prime Minister Blair’s habit of running roughshod over British opinion. Marchers oppose Blair going to... Read More
Sometime this month, perhaps before this column is published, the Supreme Court will rule on the University of Michigan’s racial quotas. Both in law school and undergraduate admissions, the university intentionally discriminates against white applicants in favor of “preferred minorities.” It is obvious that the university’s policy violates equality before the law and the Constitution’s... Read More
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against the racial quota system used in the University of Michigan’s undergraduate admissions program (Gratz case) [PDF] and for the racial quota system used in the Law School’s admission program (Grutter case). [PDF] The difference is that “the procedures employed by the University of Michigan’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions... Read More
Columnists have had a field day with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s Supreme Court decision [Grutter PDF]. In effect, O’Connor declared diversity to be a “compelling state interest” that trumps the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. Thomas Sowell described the five-member majority as “vacancies without resignations.” Shelby Steele declared the ruling “a victory for... Read More
Patrick J. Buchanan is a brave person who loves his country. In his latest book, State of Emergency,he says his country, along with European ones, is rapidly ceasing to exist. Massive unassimilated immigration is changing the cultural and linguistic face of America. Hispanics are taking back the lands seized by the American empire in the... Read More
Ferguson, Mo. is a small overwhelmingly black town whose government and police are white. The Ferguson police murdered an 18 year old black kid who has his hands over his head. Moreover, it is unclear that the kid had committed any offense. If you take a look at the photo of the three goon thugs... Read More
There are reports that American police kill 500 or more Americans every year. Few of these murdered Americans posed a threat to police. Police murder Americans for totally implausible reasons. For example, a few days before Michael Brown was gunned down in Ferguson, John Crawford picked up a toy gun from a WalMart shelf in... Read More
Julian Bond, the black civil rights activist who was thrice elected to the Georgia legislature before the US Supreme Court finally ruled that the Georgia House could not deny him his seat, died on August 15. Julian Bond was a student at Morehouse College, one of the colleges that made up Atlanta University, when I... Read More
Like all false flag attacks and assassinations, the 1968 murder of Martin Luther King was covered up. In the King case James Earl Ray was the framed-up patsy, just as Oswald was in the case of President John F. Kennedy and Sirhan Sirhan was in the case of Robert Kennedy. The King family, along with... Read More

“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.... Read More
We often hear that we need a conversation on race. Considering that Americans are a brainwashed people living in a false history, such a conversation would resemble the one the Russians were expected to have with the British in regard to the Skripal poisoning: “Yes, we are guilty. We will pay reparations. Where would you... Read More
The subversion of fact-based science and scholarship by the emotion-based ideology of Identity Politics is laying the groundwork for the genocide of white people. This sounds like an outlandish statement. However, it follows logically from the identification of white people with violence, oppression, and every evil in the world. In a number of columns I...

White people are on the point of extinction. If you say anything about it, you are labeled a “white supremacist.” Black lives matter, but not white lives. We this, for example, in South Africa where white farmers are being massacred under the slogan “land or death” by blacks whose forebears arrived in South Africa after... Read More
I don’t share the interest many have in the reported mass shootings. However, there are wider issues associated with the shootings, and I do find these issues interesting. For example, mass shootings are a relatively new occurrence. I believe the first was in 1966 at the University of Texas when a former US Marine who... Read More
There is a strong case that they are. Having been demonized for many years and intimidated from defending themselves, white people are now intentionally discriminated against by the racial “minorities” (actually vast world majorities) of the people they have been pressured to elevate above them. Once the “oppressed” are put in charge by dumbshit whites,... Read More
“The perception that mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” lingers around the country because white mass shooters tend to get more publicity. And, the twisted young male who goes on a public shooting spree fits a certain kind of media narrative. But when we actually study the mass shootings that took place in 2019,... Read More

Readers agree that the demonization of white people is unfair and divisive. Many report that they have experienced reverse discrimination, and they expect discrimination against whites, such as the announced anti-white policy of the New York public school system, to worsen as the media’s demonization of white people escalates. A few readers noted that both... Read More
The only question is the fate of the remnants
The lack of response by white Americans to their demonization as they decline as a percent of the population demonstrates their lack of concern with their fate. It seems as if the West is dead in every way. The rule of law is dead throughout the West. Democracy is a scam. There is oligarchic rule.... Read More

The New York Times’ assault on white Americans, about which I wrote yesterday ( ), is not unique to the New York Times. White people are the targets of Identity Politics—the political ideology of the Democrat Party. The demonization of white people is the main focus of “Black Studies” in universities and schools. Corporate adds... Read More
Is It Racism When Police Murder and Brutalize White People?
Dear Readers, It is June and my quarterly request for your donations. Your financial support is the only indication I have of whether my explanatory efforts are appreciated sufficiently to be continued. There are other more pleasant or more remunerative ways to use my remaining time. The monthly donors are the financial backbone of this... Read More
If white people are racist, how was Obama twice elected president of the United States? That such questions do not occur to those shouting “white racism” indicates weak minds, the presence of anti-whites out to make mischief, and people who speak on the basis of an unexamined assumption that has been drilled into their heads....

The Saker writes that “the systemic collapse of the US Society has begun.” Actually, US societal collapse has been underway for a long time. What The Saker means is that now it is obvious. Organized violence and looting in many American cities with pre-deliveries of bricks as weapons of destruction. Police and government officials kneeling... Read More
The worst racists in the world are the US print and TV media, NPR, and university administrations. Their racism is directed entirely at white people. Although Ron Unz is correct that Harvard University discriminates against Asians and limits their enrollment as Harvard once limited Jewish enrollment, it is white people who are accused by white...

Hi Dumbshit American. Have you had enough of diversity and multiculturalism? If not, vote a Democrat president, and the second wave of peaceful protests will loot and burn down your homes and neighborhoods. Be sure you understand that diversity means no more white statues and white history, because they are racist. Multiculturalism means no more... Read More
George Floyd was not killed by police. According to the toxicology report, Floyd died from a concentration of Fentanyl in his blood three times the fatal dose. Fentanyl is a dangerous opioid 50 times more potent than heroin. You can read the analysis here— . A link is provided to the autopsy report. Think about... Read More
The November presidential election has been racialized by the Democrats, media, white liberal elites, and the George Floyd protests. The racialization makes this election a watershed. The Democrats, media, and white liberal elites have placed the responsibility for the multi-city rioting and looting by blacks on white Americans for being racist. Although the evidence is...

This is an introduction to a letter written by a black American professor at the University of California, Berkeley. He says that the University no longer serves scholarship and has become a servant to the Democratic Party and Black Lives Matter. He says that the university is akin to a suppressive regime that crushes real... Read More
Have you noticed what I have noticed—that of the trillions of words in print and on the air, there are precious few that are not garbage. Among the few commentators I read is The Saker. He sees the US in systemic collapse— . Other commentators who I read, such as Dmitry Orlov, see the collapse... Read More
