When litigator Roberta Kaplan speaks to the Jewish community about her ongoing work in the Sines v. Kessler lawsuit, it is always sold as a selfless crusade to shut down the "Nazis" that marched in Charlottesville when the First Amendment failed to. What Kaplan fails to mention is how much her small law firm, Kaplan,... Read More
Recently, I pointed out that the Antifa groups that attacked the 2017 Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville VA were also key to this summer’s BLM riots. Now arrests during the current Breonna Taylor riots in Louisville KY have proved my point: notably Sean Gerwing Liter and his girlfriend Holly McGlawn-Zoller—who was notoriously caught In...

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia has ruled that the 1968 Anti-Riot Act is partially unconstitutional, yet upheld the convictions of nationalist appellants Michael Miselis and Benjamin Daley. Miselis and Daley pled guilty to "conspiracy to riot" charges in 2019 after engaging in self-defense against "antifa" attackers at the Unite the Right rally... Read More
Emily Gorcenski, the performative name of transsexual anarchist Edward Gorcenski, briefly achieved 15 minutes of fame after attending the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as a heckler. According to the media, Gorcenski was an innocent victim rather than an aggressor. But Gorcenski's social media behavior exemplifies how brazen extremist supporters of "antifa" have gotten...

On August 13, 2017, Jason Kessler, above, attempted to hold a press conference on the subject of the rally. He was physically attacked at that conference, and local authorities neither defended him, nor punished the attackers. “The Unite The Right rally was such a disaster because both organizers and attendees failed to anticipate that state...

On June 22nd, a group of anarchist hackers called DDoSecrets dumped 270 gigabytes worth of internal documents belonging to regional police fusion centers, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The documents provide interesting insight into state surveillance tactics, political bias and dynamics, and how "threats" are prioritized. The files -- dated from... Read More

There were two marches this weekend that exposed the FBI and Jewish media for the frauds they are.

Charlottesville Circuit Court Judge Richard Moore
The US Constitution still has a purpose. While it no longer serves as the basis of our legal system, it does give lawyers plenty of mental exercise finding ways to subvert its clear intent. Free speech? Not if private monopolies censor you. Freedom of assembly? Not if a masked mob gets there first. But the... Read More

A remarkable thing is happening in Charlottesville. Although the Unite the Right rally happened over a year and a half ago, Charlottesville is where the organized, militant left and its establishment backers intend to crush popular resistance to their near total control of American political discourse. If they succeed, public free speech--speech that challenges prevailing... Read More

A New Faith Stirs in the Courtroom of James Fields
Charlottesville City Circuit Court, December 4, 2018. If you seek a demonstration of vigorous legal argument, you will not find it here. These proceedings are repetitive, inane and, well, boring. But they have a different virtue. The trial of James Fields may be irrelevant as an example of good law or sound logic, but it... Read More
This charming fellow, Dwayne Dixon, a hard-core Antifa, threatened Fields with a military-grade assault rifle shortly before he crashed into the crowd.
The Fields Monkey Trial for Murder Gets Off to a Rocky Start
Editor's Note: This trial has nothing to do with Russia, but I am running this series for I have seen no other reporting from inside the courthouse which is sympathetic to the defendant, who, on the face of things, has a very strong case that he is not guilty of the charges. Unfortunately for him,... Read More

On the Rise of Reactionary Hatred and How to Fight It
With the rise in public visibility of far-right-wing militants in the U.S. following the events in Charlottesville, much of the public is scrambling to understand just what this movement is and what forces are driving it. With much of the public discussing strategies for how best to fight right-wing extremism, the need for constructive solutions... Read More

Why Charlottesville Patriots Can’t Prosecute Antifa Thugs
On the morning August 12, I and some other 20 Alt-Right men, not a few of them VDARE.com readers and supporters, assembled in a hotel outside Charlottesville VA, in preparation to attend the now-infamous “Unite the Right” rally at Lee Park. Our intentions were simple: to hear the speeches, stand by their friends, and put... Read More

Signaling the Greatest Narrative Collapse in Modern History
At this point I want everybody to forget the assassination of JFK because it’s too far back in time for even Boomers to remember many of the details. Forget 9/11 because we’ll never see the documents highlighting the entire story for decades to come. And pretty much forget the Michael Brown saga (just put it... Read More

The unfortunate events of Charlottesville have revealed a very dangerous trend among the governing and media elites of America. There is almost full consensus that Trump made the unforgivable mistake of being morally equivocal in his condemnation of the two fighting sides. This view unites not only most of the elites of both parties, but... Read More

I have to begin this analysis by asking for your understanding for the fact that it will include a lot of full-length quotes.

Argumentum ad hominem is usually characterized as a logical fallacy. But that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. Of course, if the best you can do is call your enemies losers, you better not be a bigger loser yourself. If you’re trying to dismiss your political adversaries as irrelevant, you better be more relevant than they... Read More

The Corruption of Charlottesville, VA
It has been nearly 24 hours. I’ve never been so angry about anything in my entire life.

Decades ago, a debate over what kind of nation America is roiled the conservative movement. Neocons claimed America was an "ideological nation" a "creedal nation," dedicated to the proposition that "all men are created equal." Expropriating the biblical mandate, "Go forth and teach all nations!" they divinized democracy and made the conversion of mankind to... Read More

It’s Totalitarian, It’s Captured the Democratic Party, and It’s Coming for America
There’s an interesting moment in Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes’ book Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign when two obscure Democrat operatives who involved in her presidential debate-prep sessions, Karen Dunn and Ron Klain, “stressed that Trump, contrary to popular opinion, had actually put forth a lot of policy ideas.” (VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow had...

Given that The Economist is a major journalistic voice for the globalist, nation-hating, open-borders, anti-Trump club of the Billionaire Left; and given that AntiFa is the “muscle” of that club; it’s not very surprising that when our President attacks AntiFa, The Economist pulls out all the stops.

We learned, although we already knew it, that the US media has no integrity. We learned that the liberal/progressive/left holds fast to myths that justify hate.
