It's very handy to have well-known phrases for social phenomena. A well-crafted phrase can clarify our thinking about a phenomenon, help us see it as what it truly is. A couple of the best such phrases to emerge in recent years are "virtue signalling" (except that we seem unable to agree on how to spell... Read More

See, earlier: Forget THE APPRENTICE, Trump—Blacks Will Never Vote For You Enough To Make A Difference White voters are turning away from President Trump. That assessment includes his invaluable working-class white base. But Trump has only himself and his campaign to blame for the bad news contained in the latest polls. While America burns, his...

“Then who do we shoot?” Like Muley Graves the sharecropper, John Steinbeck’s evocative Okie everyman in John Ford’s 1940 film, many Americans are bewildered by a tidal wave of forces that seem beyond their control. The answer is not easy. But increasingly it seems likely to involve geographical partition. Facing eviction from his dust-bowl farm,... Read More
Recent disastrous decisions by our “conservative” U.S. Supreme Court shows that, if Ann Coulter’s Adios America! was the most important book of the 2016 election, Christopher Caldwell’s The Age of Entitlement is the most important book of the 2020 cycle. He argues that the new constitution effectively created by the misnamed Civil Rights Act has... Read More
The Late Sam Francis On Why Our Ruling Class Won’t Stand Up To Rioters
See also: In Memoriam Sam Francis (April 29, 1947—February 15, 2005) Our once-proud country is meekly standing down in the face of rioting mobs, and most of our political and corporate elite are openly siding with the black and radical rabble and against the civilizational inheritance which allows them to function. Meanwhile, I have, quite... Read More
Everyone knows that Leftists are hypocrites. White “Black Lives Matter” protesters who have incited and even participated in horrifying disorder, demanded the abolition of the police, and “taken a knee” to virtue-signal, returning home to overwhelmingly white, safe suburbs. Social Justice Warriors who proclaim that all races are “equal” in every way, and vociferously condemn... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The brave spirits of Seattle originally named their new country Chaz, for Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

What kind of a person would tell white American children that they were, to some extent, justified in burning down the neighborhood stores that might one day employ them? That the teachers, and not they, were in charge of the school because the teachers were wicked people who wanted to hurt them? That teachers should... Read More
I put these monthly diaries together from things I've jotted down as they occurred to me through the month, in approximate chronological order.

In discussions of our ongoing Cold Civil War between the goodwhite Tutsi ruling class and us badwhite Hutu deplorables, it's often observed that we understand them much better that they understand us.
