It is quite interesting to observe how many commentators are completely misreading the current race riots or compare them with previous race riots in the history of the US. I suppose that by telling themselves that these latest riots are "just like" or "not nearly as bad" as past US race riots they try to... Read More

Training of American police in brutal tactics revealed
The killing of black man George Floyd by white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has produced the highest level of national unrest seen in the United States since the 1960s. Tens of thousands of protesters are demonstrating against racism and perceived police brutality. As it also comes at a time of coronavirus pandemic and record... Read More

Americans are deeply troubled by the sadistic killing of George Floyd, but they're also worried about the nationwide protests. According to a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey, 80 percent of those who were polled think the country is spiraling out of control. This is an unsustainable situation. People want justice for Mr Floyd, but... Read More
In America, white citizens are under siege in a three front war with criminals on the street, the entire government, and the plutocrats directing them. These forces have all united to support the George Floyd race riots. In Clarksdale, Mississippi, a nurse named Monie Brown was fired from her job at Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical...

It is truly a melancholy sight to walk through the great cities and towns of the West today and observe the countless corpses of Black scientists, engineers, and philosophers left behind by the brutal White officers of the law. In the long illustrious history of the African, replete as it is with towering artistic and... Read More

Who could have guessed that the Floyd protest was the best Coronavirus vaccine? The same people that warned us that the virus is the deadliest plague and staying-at-home is the only escape, now commanded us to march amongst throngs, shoulder-to-shoulder against police! It appears they have the dreadful pandemic under their command, on tap: now... Read More

Have you noticed the peculiar fact that despite the lockdown, the economic crisis, tens of millions unemployed and multiple corporations filing for bankruptcy, Wall Street is having a ball? CNBC‘s Jim Cramer examined this anomaly earlier a few days ago, his verdict: “we're looking at a V-shaped recovery in the stock market, and that has... Read More

Studies in Applied Stupidity
This will be a disoriented essay. These are disorienting times. Perhaps the reader should prepare himself with a double shot of Wild Turkey throat sanitizer, or a doob. I am still getting mail saying that Floyd’s death was due to underlying conditions. I see. By purest coincidence, he died of natural causes while hand-cuffed, face... Read More
The Saker writes that “the systemic collapse of the US Society has begun.” Actually, US societal collapse has been underway for a long time. What The Saker means is that now it is obvious. Organized violence and looting in many American cities with pre-deliveries of bricks as weapons of destruction. Police and government officials kneeling... Read More
What can be done about the current wave of urban riots? The obvious answer is, sad to say, not much. Public officials with only a handful of exceptions are paralyzed to respond with the necessary force lest they be accused of brutality and provoke yet more rioting and violence. There is some good news, however.... Read More

America is in turmoil because of a video in which a Policeman seems very highly likely to have caused the death of an arrested man. He must face trial. Also, the techniques used in making arrests must be put on trial. Kneeling down on the back of the neck of a hand-cuffed man is not... Read More
In his statement to The Atlantic magazine, former Defense Secretary General James Mattis says of the events of the last 10 days that have shaken the nation as it has not been shaken since 1968: "We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers."

I am a jazz artist, I have dedicated my entire adult life to the study of Black American music and culture.

On June 4th, Common Dreams’ lead story is titled, “‘This Isn’t Going Away’: Defying Curfews and Police Brutality in Relentless Push for Justice, Uprising Over Killing of George Floyd Keeps Growing.” The same day, I received a mass email from Jee Leong Koh, a Singaporean poet living in Harlem. In an 800-word statement about the... 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?

Dr. Michael Baden had determined that George Floyd died by cop. That, the courageous onlookers who filmed the snuff film could have told him. The nation’s foremost forensic pathologist was called in to weigh-in scientifically and independently about the demise of the Minneapolis man, whom millions across the world have, by now, watched slowly suffocate...

Americans are so brainwashed that even some of my readers cannot believe that police violence affects more white people than black people. The majorty of victims are white; but dispoportionately (blacks are a smaller percent of the population) they are black. In turn, this disproportion can be explained by the fact that according to US... Read More

As American cities burn and people are murdered in the street with impunity by groups protesting the death of George Floyd, very little reporting has been done on who exactly is responsible beyond tweets from Donald Trump about the mobs being led by "Antifa" (Anti-Fascist) -- an umbrella term anarchist organizations use as propaganda when...

Here is one thing I can write with an unusual degree of certainty and confidence: Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin would not have been charged with the (third-degree) murder of George Floyd had the United States not been teetering on a knife edge of open revolt. Had demonstrators not turned out in massive numbers on... Read More
The Obama regime’s National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, the most unqualified person ever to have had that job, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN that the organized burning and looting violence of the George Floyd protests “is right out of the Russian playbook” — Other nutcases are blaming “foreign adversaries” such as China. Susan is not... Read More

The Revolution Won’t Be Televised because this is not a revolution. At least not yet. Burning and/or looting Target or Macy’s is a minor diversion.

Precisely as I reported– –Minnesota police received Israeli training. The knee-on-neck is an Israeli restraint hold that Israeli forces use for breaking Palestinian necks. I doubt the Minneapolis cop intended to kill Floyd. He probably thought he was just using a restraint technique. In so many of the cases of police-inflicted death and injury there... Read More
On the fifth night of rioting, looting and arson in Minneapolis, the criminal elements were driven from the streets. By whom? By the same cops who had been the constant objects of media derision and mob hatred. Without the thin blue line, far larger sectors of dozens of America's cities would be in ruins, burned...

[the below will be translated into Farsi and published at this website] The Iranian people would like to know how would you interpret Floyd’s death: an isolated case of officers mistreating criminals or a sign of systematic anti-black racism? -As we can clearly see in the film, Floyd was murdered, for an officer knelt on...

Well, it looks like the Resistance’s long-anticipated “Second Civil War” has finally begun … more or less exactly on cue. Rioting has broken out across the nation. People are looting and burning stores and attacking each other in the streets. Robocops are beating, tear-gassing, and shooting people with non-lethal projectiles. State National Guards have been...

Antifa blacks, an outfit of the Democrat Party, went on a looting and burning rampage in Atlanta. The female police chief and female mayor let it happen the first night.

On April 29th, an American friend wrote from Spain, where he’d lived for 20 years, “The government announced new (legal) abilities to track and monitor people’s telephones. My youngest [son] asked if we could go to the U.S. if Spain moves towards communism. I didn’t know how to respond! Frightening where this could go.” I... Read More

It was murder, plain and simple. There are no contradictory witnesses, no he-said-she-said. It is on the video, with no lapses. The man on the ground is clearly heard imploring mercy, begging to be allowed to breathe. Onlookers also implore. The officer knows the man is choking, yet keeps choking him. No police protocol calls... 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.

When the Justice Department announced its investigation into Harvard’s possible racial discrimination against Asians, almost on cue the usual suspects came forth with all-too familiar rhetoric on affirmation action. For liberals it was all about keeping our cherished diversity or helping the disadvantaged; conservatives meanwhile lectured on merit-based admissions or how preferences will stigmatize beneficiaries...

In Cincinnati, where race riots flamed for three days in April, the fruits of the war against racial profiling are now dropping off the trees. Last week both The Washington Times and The New York Times carried virtually the same story: Crime in Cincinnati is out of control—for the simple reason that the police are... Read More
After four straight days of anti-white mayhem in Cincinnati, the national media evidently decided that they could no longer keep their lid on one of the nation's largest race riots since the 1960s. Therefore, in place of simple suppression, what the nation's news watchers got was spin—that the oppressed blacks of Cincinnati took to the... Read More
The news unfit to print for the last couple of weeks has to do with black violence against whites trying to celebrate "Fat Tuesday" in cities all over the country.
