[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] See also: VDARE.com’s Brimelow: “This Is A Communist Coup. But White America Is On The Move” Communism has always suffered from tensions caused by the need for both political rectitude and expertise in fields of practical knowledge. Fields like medicine, for example. Lenin nursed... Read More

Douglas Murray, The War on the West, Broadside Books, 2022, 320 pages, $27.99 hardcover Like Douglas Murray’s previous books, The Strange Death of Europe (2017) and The Madness of Crowds (2019) — both reviewed for American Renaissance by Jared Taylor — The War on the West is valuable reportage on contemporary racial lunacy. The author... Read More
Interrogating Anti-Racism and Contemplating the Cargo-Cult of Critique
Here’s an astonishing fact: the White mathematician Claude Shannon (1916–2001) contributed more to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) than all Blacks who have ever lived. But then so did the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887–1920). And the Jewish mathematician Emmy Noether (1882–1935), which is even more astonishing. Jews have always been a tiny minority... Read More
There have been “despicable acts.” This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, Brighteon, Gab TV, 3Speak, UgeTube, and Odysee. Hate is stalking the campus of Stanford University. On Monday just this week, the vice provost for “institutional equity” issued a campus-wide alert about “a horrific discovery that will shake our community.” He announced “an outreach... Read More

Elite Admissions, Asian Quotas, and the Free Harvard/Fair Harvard Campaign
For at least the last two generations, American conservatives have been loudly complaining about the racially-based employment and admission policies widely described as "affirmative action." I know this to be true because as a youngster in the 1970s, strong opposition to affirmative action was the primary issue that gradually drew me towards the Republican Party,... Read More
As if on cue, only a couple of weeks after my article wondering whether – given its bizarre admissions formulae – Harvard was any longer fit for purpose comes the astounding story of Kaitlyn Younger (see Douglas Belkin, “To Get into the Ivy League, Extraordinary Isn’t Always Enough These Days,” Wall Street Journal [April 21,...

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
See, earlier (2010) The Fulford File: "Eugenics" Is What Happens When Cousins Don't Marry Writing a “popular science” book is no easy task. You must deftly walk a tightrope between making your arguments exciting, absorbing and comprehensible to the “educated layman” but, also, nuanced, objective and scientifically sound. If his fellow Leftists scientists and commentators... Read More
I’m interested in parlance, I’m interested in poofs, pansies and pillow-biters. How could I not be interested in Polari? According to Paul Baker’s book Fabulosa (2019), Polari was “Britain’s Secret Gay Language” and used by thousands of “camp gay men” until the late 1960s. Baker describes its history, heyday, decline and revival. But the book... Read More
So it looks not impossible that our new politically-purified multiracial multicultural U.S. Army might actually have to fight, you know, a war in Europe against Russia. This raises lot of interesting questions, but one of them is what is happening to the reputation of the last U.S. Army that fought and won a major war... Read More
In the previous two parts of this essay (here and here), I discussed my experiences as a faculty member at a far-left American academic institution, and how the social justice hysteria was affecting what was going on at the school. What has been occurring more recently? This is amusing, as I have experienced truly grotesque... Read More

The Regime Media is upset that the U.S. Supreme Court has accepted a case challenging Affirmative Action in college admissions [The Supreme Court adds affirmative action to its potential hit list, by Nina Totenberg, NPR, January 24, 2022]. And maybe it should be. In the famous case of Marbury v. Madison, Chief Justice John Marshall... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier, by Steve Sailer: What If Wokeness Is A Russian Conspiracy To Ruin America? I'm starting to be irritated by the word "Wokeness," I'm not sure why. When "Woke" and "Wokeness" first came up, I thought they were sort of cute. Since the 1980s,... Read More
Experts blame Covid. This video is available on BitChute. The year 2020 was famous for the biggest increase in murders ever recorded in the United States: a 30 percent jump in a single year, for a total of 21,570 murders. Here are the numbers going back to 1990. You can see the increase in 2020,... Read More

I take it that the reader is familiar with the basics of the so-called Holocaust: the alleged deaths of some six million Jews, many in gas chambers, at the hands of the Nazis in World War II. This was, we are told, a deliberate policy of Hitler and his top men, something of highest priority—even... Read More

All of us necessarily focus on different areas, and until quite recently I'd never paid much attention to public health issues, naively assuming that these were in the hands of reasonably competent and reasonably honest government servants, monitored by journalists and academics of similar reliability. For many of us, myself included, an important crack in... Read More

My paper “The Default Hypothesis Fails to Explain Jewish Influence” has generated considerable controversy. Springer Nature has put up the following statement at the beginning of the article: The good news, of course, is that they are saying that I will be able to “respond in full.” This could get very interesting. Meanwhile, I have... Read More
Ada King, Countess of Lovelace
Babbage, Lovelace and the Biggest Lie in Tech
It is a near-universal claim that the world’s first computer programmer was Ada Lovelace. She is referred to as the “enchantress of numbers”, a mathematical genius, a visionary and a fundamental contributor to the field of computing. The second Tuesday of October is “Ada Lovelace day” – an event to celebrate women’s achievements in STEM... Read More

Anti-Jewish Violence in Poland, 1914–1920 William W. Hagan Cambridge University Press, 2018 I recently had the good fortune to read William Hagen’s Cambridge-published Anti-Jewish Violence in Poland, 1914–1920, one of the most interesting books I’ve read on Jewish-European relations since John Doyle Klier’s Oxford-published work on the Tsarist pogroms. It’s always refreshing to see scholars... Read More

"A Genius, So Massive And Important Was His Contribution. And The Last Of The Scientific Generation That Believed In Truth"
Earlier, by Steve Sailer: Monica R. McLemore In The SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN: How to Fix E.O. Wilson's Racist Legacy Recently, in April 2021, I emailed Edward O. Wilson to ask if he might consider appearing on my internet show The Jolly Heretic, where I discuss supposedly “controversial” science increasingly banned in the Woke Cathedrals that Western...

How the Ideas of a White Genius Can Expose the True Intentions of the Left
Globohomo is the vast system of anti-White, minority-worshipping leftism that wants to control and suffocate the entire world. And if you want a good example of the “globo” in globohomo, just consider this. At school in the UK, White British students are taught all about the Black American non-entity Rosa Parks (1913–2005) and nothing about... Read More
. This is adapted from remarks given at the 18th American Renaissance conference on November 13, 2021. Video of the speech is available here. Before I begin, I’d like to quote what Regime Media has to say about us. This is from WPLN News, Nashville Public Radio. They accused us of promoting “racist ideas” under... Read More

Michael Hudson Interviewed on Kevin Barrett’s Truth Jihad Radio, 11/15/21 Kevin Barrett: Welcome to Truth Jihad Radio, the radio show that wages the all-out struggle for truth by uncovering all sorts of interesting facts and perspectives that are normally banned, covered up, obscured, spun or otherwise messed with in the corporate controlled mainstream. Today we’re... Read More

During the Halloween festivities a few weeks ago it seemed to me a timely opportunity to indulge my interest in the darker, horror-tinged aspects of European folklore concerning Jews. I’ve been intrigued in recent years by a growing literature connecting vampire tales, both early modern and modern, with the history of the European-Jewish interaction.[1] Much... Read More
Overwhelmed by the procrustean atmosphere of the contemporary university, self-styled contrarians led by Bari Weiss have decided to launch a new university in Texas called the University of Austin. The decision is widely heralded as an antidote to the virulent conformity engendered by major universities. As the mobbing of Kathleen Stock, Dorian Abbott, and Charles... Read More

Note: This is a greatly expanded and updated version of an essay that first appeared on TOO in 2012. A long line of books and documentaries have explored Richard Wagner’s anti-Semitism and his putative role as the spiritual and intellectual godfather to Adolf Hitler. In the Jewish-dominated cultural milieu of the contemporary West, this meme... Read More

Stalin's foreign policy concerning Germany in the years 1939-1941
The largest military operation in history commenced on 22 June 1941. Millions of German troops crossed the German-Soviet border and clashed with the Red Army. Adolf Hitler and German commanders expected to be able to defeat the Soviet Union in three months.[1] By the end of September 1941, the Germans had managed to destroy 8160... Read More
Here is the full interview between The Root’s Michael Harriot and Brittney Cooper. Both should be known to readers. While @ProfessorCrunk probably believes what she’s saying, it’s hard to take offense. It shows what affirmative action does. She is ridiculous. Race realists shouldn’t want her silenced. White advocacy would be well served by playing these... Read More

Solzhenitsyn and the Right Spencer J. Quinn Antelope Hill Publishing, 2021 Spencer J. Quinn’s Solzhenitsyn and the Right summarizes a large portion of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s voluminous body of work, but its focus isn’t entirely on Solzhenitsyn. It is replete with parallels between pre- and post-revolutionary Russia/Soviet Union and the present situation in the West. Fundamentally,... Read More
[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] The horrors of Wokeness in higher education have been a staple of conservative commentary for decades—at least since the publication of Roger Kimball's book Tenured Radicals back in 1990. So the recent flap at Yale Law School did not cause me to swoon in... Read More
The Jewish Chronicle warns that the dismissal of Prof David Miller is ‘just the beginning’
The Israel lobby appears to be readying for a campaign to root out leftwing academics in the UK critical of Israel’s continuing oppression of the Palestinian people – echoing its efforts against the previous leader of Britain’s Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn. As with the attacks on Corbyn, the assault on academia is being led by... Read More

This is part of our continuing series of accounts by readers of how they shed the illusions of liberalism and became race realists. First published in 2015 on Counter-Currents, this essay is the introduction to Gregory Hood’s book, Waking Up From the American Dream. I always felt cheated. It wasn’t because I lacked for anything.... Read More

“Despite the best efforts of generations of distinguished Arabists, the history of the Arabs before Islam remains exasperatingly obscure,” wrote Harvard scholar Barry Hoberman, managing editor of Biblical Archeology.[1] The early history of Islam is in an even worst condition: a “revisionist school of Islamic Studies” is now shattering the canonical chronology, while other maverick...

The Crest of the Peacock (1991) has a beautiful title and an ugly purpose. The book takes that title from a line in an ancient Sanskrit text: “Like the crest of a peacock, like the gem on the head of a snake, so is mathematics at the head of all knowledge.” (p. v) So much... Read More

The evidence that genes influence intelligence and other personality traits is so overwhelming that even a few lefties no longer deny it. But, oh, how they agonize over how to reconcile science with the religion of equality. How do you justify massive social intervention when the people you are trying to help might not be... Read More
Not even doctors are immune to diversity rubbish. This video is available on Bitchute. The other day I made a video called “Diversity or Standards: You Can’t Have Both.” I pointed out all the standards that have fallen in the name of diversity – in law enforcement, schools and colleges, employment, and even historical accuracy....

Once upon a time when I was young, Harvard was a prestigious university where a determined student could get a good education. But education was not the real attraction of the university. It was Harvard’s network that was valuable. Of course, to get in you had to have a network, that is, you had to... Read More

I came of age during the late Cold War Era, and while the possibility of nuclear war was regarded as horrifying, it was hardly unthinkable, being the subject of countless films and stories and with the rival U.S. and Soviet arsenals regularly compared in newspapers and magazines. However, biological warfare did indeed seem unthinkable. Back... Read More

How many times have you heard that slavery was “America’s original sin”? I’m not quite sure what that means, but I think the idea is that slavery was a uniquely horrible thing that defines the United States and will stain whites forever. It’s one of the few things Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Barack... Read More

An interview with Prof Roman Zubarev
I love scientists but they will kill us all, said Jon Stewart on The Late Show with Steven Colbert . Science eased our suffering due to a pandemic that was most likely caused by science, he told the audience. (Here you can find an acerbic response to the show on the Unz Review) Is it... Read More
Cornel West, an early advocate of Critical Race Theory which alleges that all institutions are haunted by the ghost of white supremacy, has now learned who really controls Harvard. Earlier this week, the academic pop icon published his resignation letter from his position at Harvard University Divinity School, citing persecution and censorship by administrators over...

Earlier this year, my brother suddenly asked me what “Critical Race Theory” was. I was elated, for this was proof that this pernicious, genocidal, anti-White theory was finally entering into the consciousness of Whites. Since my brother asked me, stories about Critical Race Theory (CRT) have mushroomed, including much criticism of this previously arcane intellectual... Read More
As I noted in Individualism and the Western Liberal Tradition, explicit expressions of anti-White hate are one of the most important of the psychological mechanisms that will wake White people up to identify as White and have a sense of White interests (section titled “Expressions of Anti-White Hatred Promote White Ethnocentrism, here). Recently it has... Read More
Was slavery a wrong or an inherited institution? Did slavery originate in the English colonies in North America in the 17th century or do its origins go back before the time of recorded history? Is slavery racist or is it based on economic motive? If a person wants understanding, these are important questions. But if... Read More
Earlier by Lance Welton: Are Women Destroying Academia? Probably Washington Post journalist Paul Farhi recently put out a very interesting (if embarrassingly fawning) twitter thread on the occasion of Sally Buzbee being named executive editor of the Washington Post a.k.a. his boss: “Women are now in charge of the newsrooms at the Washington Post, CBS...

Joel Kotkin is a funny fellow. His review of VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow’s 1995 immigration book Alien Nation was a vicious smear, even echoing the common paranoid complaint that Brimelow “repeatedly” referred to his blue-eyed blond baby boy (there was actually only one reference, in the unimpeachable context of the destructive effect of the interaction...

Johnny Williams is a black professor of sociology at Trinity College. He is best known for his inflammatory comments, often made on social media, especially his 2019 tweet, “whiteness is terrorism.” Prof. Williams wrote several columns defending that claim.

Having finished the first round of months-long “sensitivity trainings” and webinars, I’d like to... Read More
There is no man that university corrupts not
We can provide education for everyone, but we cannot offer everyone privilege. A conspiracy of Potemkin progressives and masochistic liberals have sold the general public the idea that we all can up-grade our lives by getting more education. Education is now seriously competing with work for the main pastime of our existence. Until the mid... Read More
