Now that I’ve been officially declared “monstrous” by The New Yorker, this is your chanced to support freedom of speech that the nation’s most respectable magazine finds “monstrous.”

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute to me, iSteve:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me:

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: if you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address ( — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: [Warning: Does this still work?] You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

If Coinbase isn’t working, what other Bitcoin intermediaries would you recommend? My goal is to not get audited by the IRS. The SPLC has been out to get me via the IRS for about 15 years, so I am fastidious about paying my taxes. For several years, Coinbase instantly transformed any Bitcoin donations into cash so I didn’t have to worry about the cost basis of capital gains on Bitcoin, but instead just reported income.

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

    Steve, I support what you’re doing because I enjoy the freedom of speech that you have to be playful with the sacred cows of the society you care about (as in contrast to the Amish or Angolans).

    This would be true if we lived in a Scientologist government and you poked around at its sacred cows.

    I don’t claim that what you’re doing is “good” for any moral reasons, even the moral reason of preserving a healthy dose of free speech.

    I’m pretty sure that most people want to be owned by a common owner, aka a king, or at least a ruling clique.

    So your writing may indeed be against the preferences of the majority of the people and for all I know it’s bad for them somehow. Heck, one wonders whether your occasionally fascinating or funny writing does evil to your readers.

    Many have told me that your writing is a a depression pill to them and almost a psyop by the enemy to depress the will of the people into a harmless lethargic sentiment strong enough to feel two minutes hate, five minutes fear and forever the boot of the man stepping on their face.

    I’m not saying that’s the case either.

    I’m just saying that your writing skill and findings and theories aren’t why I read. They’re awesome but probably pretty common. And even better on some mommy blogs.

    It also isn’t that I buy into your crusades or have any special fascination by your subject matter (excepting the rare archeological, novel anthropological or Chechnya related pieces).

    Nor am I sure that most people either want or benefit from your Dissent.

    Just that I do.

    I’m not at all sure that it’s good for me. I haven’t thought that far. I just know that I appear to be stuck as a Dissenter to any strict orthodoxy and it pleases me to see a fellow of my own kind kicking The Man in the shins.

  5. “Donated,” more like paying you much less than I should for your work. But I am a man of humble means, good luck Steve.

    @Derrick Tucker

    Rising like a dead fish in a sewage tank, yep.

    Also, remember that anti-canceling letter? It’s over already

    The open letter against cancel culture was a ray of hope… until some signatories canceled themselves out of it

    Aside from Jennifer Boylan of the New York Times, historian Kerri Greenridge asked to be removed from it. Vox critic-at-large Emily VanDerWerff complained to Vox’s editors about a colleague signing it. She stated she felt “less safe.” How Matt Yglesias’ signature on a letter that’s about preserving free expression (which lets her do her job) is harmful is left up to interpretation.

    The irony of these presumably straight-faced backtrackings is unbelievable.

    You don’t pledge your support for free expression and then go “oh no, not THOSE people’s free expression.” If you want a civil, liberal society with free expression, there are going to be people you don’t like that share the same opinions as you. There are also going to be people you like that share opinions you hate.

    The Big Igloo is drawing nearer every second, whether people want it or not.

  8. West Point spirals further down the drain:

    Watching a Biden/Harris administration attempt large scale war with Russia and/or China will be hilarious for all the wrong reasons.

    Just mailed the check. Somebody almost certainly beat me to this, but for the benefit of your readers, could you clarify whether “monstrous” is a step up or step down from “reprllent”? I want to be sure I’m getting my money’s worth.

    Hmmm. Steve keeps using these respectable words…

  11. Maybe they mean “monstrous” in a good way, y’know like “Monsters of the Midway”, as sort of a reference to your Chicago days…

  15. @Jim Don Bob

    Not only are you monstrous, you practice “scientific racism”, which probably involves titration and 💩.

    “Titration is the slow addition of one solution of a known concentration (called a titrant) to a known volume of another solution of unknown concentration until the reaction reaches neutralization, which is often indicated by a color change.”

    >>Not only are you monstrous, you practice “scientific racism”, which probably involves titration and shit.<<

    Not to mention test tubes, beakers, microscopes, CRISPER machines and Van de Graaff generators. Pretty crowded in iSteve's writing closet.

    ISteve isn't some mere Dr. Frankenstein, according to the Times he's literally the current incarnation of Dr. Frankenstein's monster. Though IIRC he was named Chuck, not Steve.

    Well, “monster” can be a positive quality, according to Merriam Webster Dictionary:

    “5: one that is highly successful
    That movie was a monster at the box office.”

    “Steve Sailer’s blog is a monster in the HBD-sphere
    Steve Sailer is huge (“mostruous”) in right – leaning circles.
    Steve Sailer is big (monstrous) in Finland. “

    Nahh….Weird Al Yankovic!

  23. Now that I’ve been officially declared “monstrous” by The New Yorker, this is your chanced to support freedom of speech that the nation’s most respectable magazine finds “monstrous.”

    The nation’s most respected newspaper provides Steve with a torrent of content, and now the nation’s most respected magazine helps Steve with the fundraising.

    It must be some sort of White Privilege.

  24. What about coronavirus, Steve? That’s almost all you talked about for a while and now, silence. Of course they vary greatly by state or even city, but the restrictions were mostly being loosened for a while. Now, they are being re-tightened. Do you think that’s a good thing? You loved masks in the beginning and now mask requirements are becoming more common. It seems that you would have an opinion but you say nothing.

    What’s the deal?

    I had not heard of super slate codex until I read it in iSteve. Maybe the New Yorker writer had not either? Or perhaps a high level editor? Certainly seems plausible to me, that iSteve has some secret readers high up in the media world.

    Otherwise, why even mention Mr. Sailer?

    What is quite odd is that no one has written a lengthy expose on

    @The Wild Geese Howard

    From Ron Dreher (The American Conservative):

    I received the following e-mail today from an alumnus of the United States Military Academy at West Point. I am redacting the reader’s name to protect privacy:


    These graduates all came from the top tier of the ranks of the Academy’s cadet leaders. Two recent valedictorians and First Captains signed this manifesto. (Other past First Captains include Douglas MacArthur, John J. Pershing, and William C. Westmoreland.) The other cadets all held high-ranking positions within the Corps of Cadets. They are the cream of the crop of the Army’s future leaders, the guys and gals that will become generals one day and will be expected to lead America’s sons and daughters in combat.

    Their actions are akin to those of the Red Guards in Maoist China. They are agitating to tear the Academy apart from the ground up and reorient its mission around Anti-Racism. The fact that our country’s future leaders believe in this nonsense is a sign that our military is in trouble, and cannot be relied upon either to defend our country or to safeguard the interests of all Americans in the performance of their duties.

    Do not take comfort in the security which has hitherto been afforded to our nation by our armed forces. We have not been tested against a real enemy in many generations. When we are, leaders like this will not be able to stand in the field of battle. You have been warned.

    Worth reading;

    That’s who is in charge of national security these days.

    All of which is to say, these woke O-1s, O-2s, and O-3s are very plausibly the future of the United States Army. Their signaling is only partially about USMA: it is much more about marking themselves for the careermakers in DC — within and outside of the formal Army — and benefitting from it accordingly. An O-6, O-7, or O-8, who knows very well that his political superiors in the DC-groupthink cohort love BLM, is going to see professional advantage for himself in reaching down into the organization for BLM-supporting O-1s, O-2s, and O-3s. They’ll get — quietly, informally — preferential assignment, advancement, and exposure. And eventually they’ll be in charge.

    Americans need to understand.

    America actually needs a coup within the US military to get rid of their Wokes, and then ready themselves ready to get rid of Wokes in wider US society.

    I can’t use my buttoms so I LOL and Agree all at once. I picture Steve as a Dickensian character imparting forbidden knowledge in a secluded alley somewhere. Kind of the Sweeney Todd of HBD.

  29. @Miro23

    Once the military gets involved in coups, internally or in politics, we are all fucked.

  30. FLJ says:

    I recall first hearing your name 15 or so years ago in a back-and-forth on between Will Saletan and John McWhorter regarding racial IQ. I was a hard-left, mulatto high-schooler (still biracial, as it happens) curious about the actual details concerning the controversial claims about race and intelligence. Whenever Saletan or McWhorter mentioned you or your work, they would parenthetically interject with some phrase like “(who is of course a very, very bad man)”, no doubt to ritualistically ward themselves from the diabolical taint of your mere name.

    I came away from the Slate piece confused enough about the actual science to just walk away, and with the impression that this Steve Sailer fellow was some unhinged, vicious, acrimoniously uncharitable racist. A few years later I saw the American Conservative’s Daniel Larison, whose excellently intelligent and level-headed foreign policy analysis I’d picked up from Sullivan’s blog, refer to you as one of some “very, very smart people.” This Sailer fellow, the villainous racist, praised by a man whose common sense, intelligence, and moral conscience I’ve come to to be well convinced of? I supposed I should see for myself.

    And over a decade later, you’re still one of my favorite writers, and a go-to recommendation for any acquaintance of mine who is sensible and trustworthy to be discreet. Keep up the good work, continuous good health to you and all your family, and eat well and supplement correctly to keep your brain sharp!

    Maybe Steve realised that after nearly two months of crowded protests, angry riots and shameless looting, people aren’t dropping dead on the streets, not because of covid-19 anyway. Perhaps he’s no longer sure Wu-Flu was the killer it was made to be by Anthony Faulci and his MSM mouthpieces.

  32. @Federalist

    Sailer’s self-appointed job is to translate the major media outlets’ newspeak into plain English. Wuflu kept people honest for some time, opinions weren’t divided along traditional lines, and it didn’t fit the Narrative much. I don’t recall seeing anyone saying that Wuflu is white people’s fault. Floyd’s death and the absurdism that followed, on the other hand, is, well, Sailer’s bread and butter.

    Lombardy has shown that Wuflu isn’t just another flu. It’s funny how people’s brains short-circuit when it comes to things that dont have immediate consequences and require some basic math to understand.
