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

“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

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. At the time this diary goes up on VDARE.com at the beginning of June, all the news is about the anti-cop and anti-white riots. Those riots didn't start up until the last... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] America's most enduring problem, the problem of the blacks, has been dominating the news this week.

How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky? How mealy-mouthed about race are our major news outlets?

The Left/ Main Stream Media know exactly what happened in Richmond on January 20, when tens of thousands of white gun owners assembled in the capital of the Confederacy to defend their Second Amendment rights.

Since the murder of Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors on December 11, the Main Stream Media have been up to their usual tricks.

We have a tag here at VDARE.com with the title Not Reporting Race.

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively at VDARE.com Here’s an anniversary that, even after the Pensacola (and Pearl Harbor) shootings, doesn’t seem to have been mentioned in the Main Stream Media: the Fort Hood massacre, which occurred just over ten years ago, on November 5th, 2009.

Boris Johnson’s dramatic Brexit election victory is a dramatic demonstration that the Ruling Class hasn’t smothered nationalism in the UK at least. But it’s trying, everywhere.

Yes, Virginia (Dare), there is a War On The White Working Class, and the judicial lynching of Michael Drejka for shooting a black man, at first acknowledged by law enforcement to be self-defense but later converted under black political pressure into an incredible twenty-year jail sentence, is the latest example.

Immigration patriots know that Donald Trump hasn’t been the border cop they voted for in 2016.

Race-denialism is all over the Western world—the notion that race itself is a sort of optical illusion; that different races can, after a bit of social engineering, be brought to present the same statistical profiles on all traits; that when they present different profiles the only possible explanation is malice on the part of white...

The “Great Replacement,” the systematic dispossession of white Americans and Europeans by Third World immigrants, is either a “conspiracy theory” or a self-evident good depending on who is talking about it.

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984 famously contained the aphorism: “Who controls the past controls the future.
