Blacks have been torturing and killing Boer farmers in South Africa for years, with the apparent indifference of the government. Chanting “kill the Boer” is not hate speech, but the “Equality Court” has ruled that flying the flag of the old South African regime is criminal “hate speech.” If you haven’t figured out how the...

Dr. Edward Dutton interviews Unz Review’s ilana mercer
Dr. Edward Dutton of the popular “Jolly Heretic” podcast interviews me about my 2011 book, "Into the Cannibal's Pot: Lessons For America From Post-Apartheid South Africa"; what it portends for America—has the tipping point been reached?—and much more. Ed quipped that the book has held up "quite well." I, of course, wrote "Into the Cannibal's... Read More
They take advantage of absent or incompetent government. Jared Taylor interviews 13th-generation South African Dan Roodt on the surprising ways whites survive and even get ahead in a country where the deck is stacked against them. This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee.

In Hanoi in 1998, poet Phan Huyen Thu gave me an anthology of the earliest Vietnamese prose, a book that’s now in a box in Moorestown, NJ, at my friend Ian Keenan’s house. Along with all my other books, which constitute my mental terrain, roughly, I won’t see it again. Life is loss, in installments.... Read More
Windhoek, 2021
My last night in Cape Town was spent at 91 Loop Boutique Hostel. Paying $33, I had a rather large, if very spartan, room, with my own toilet. With six beds, it was clearly intended as a dorm space, but tourists were still scarce, thanks to Covid. A filling breakfast was included, and it wasn’t... Read More
The HIV/AIDS Story
I am persuaded by the arguments that HIV doesn’t cause AIDS and that like President Thabo Mbeki I have done the unspeakable scientific act of looking at the evidence and then deciding to change my mind. The Scandal Started April 23, 1984 1984 was an election year and US President Ronald Reagan had not said... Read More
Born into a war, I was a refugee by 11, living in a tent in Guam, then an army barrack in Arkansas. In 2015, I wrote “Our Refugee Future,” because I knew that nearly all of us, even the most comfortable or smug, were only too likely to become refugees soon enough. I said, “There... Read More

Universal suffrage finally came to South Africa in 1994. Not everyone cheered. Many whites hoarded beans, rice, rusks, canned protein, candles and gasoline, etc. They expected societal breakdown, if not mass violence committed by blacks in retribution. Thousands of whites emigrated, but, this is often overlooked, thousands also returned from overseas, so the “chicken run”... Read More

In March of 1960, white cops massacred 69 unarmed blacks in Sharpeville, South Africa. In 1961, uMkhonto we Sizwe [Spear of the Nation] was co-founded by Nelson Mandela to fight back against white racist rule. In 1964, Mandela was sentenced to life in prison. In 1976, between 176 and 700 black protesters were killed by... Read More
With a wicked sense of humor, God has made me a warlord, for I now have a growing army of Angry White Pussies! They’re joining me so fast, I must turn most away, on grounds of physical or mental deficiency. Of course, even those who can handle a few pushups and some crude English, which... Read More

Coming to Cape Town, I was a bit concerned I wouldn’t be able to walk around much. A Captonian had warned me I would be taking my life into my own hands, although he prayed to God he was wrong. You can’t experience any place without walking around, however, for it’s the only way to... Read More
Canceled in the USA, I’ve emerged triumphant in South Africa. I’m huge here, for real. Everywhere I go, people know my name. “Mr. Miyagi!” “Hello, Jackie Chan!” “Hi, Mr. Lee.” “Hey, Bruce Lee!” “Ni hao!” “Ching ching!” accompanied by a huge smile. My self worth restored, I strut. As I pass two chunky prostitutes in... Read More
Cape Town, 2021
In boxing, there are bangers and dancers, but the very best, a Meldrick Taylor, say, could concuss and rupture yet still pirouette with finesse. If you waltz too much, you’ll lose fans. Even with a perfect record of 50-0, cake walking Floyd Mayweather has detractors. South African Corrie Sanders was no juking pussy. Although his... Read More
Cape Town, 2021
In my last two articles, I pointed out the obvious, that war profiteers, whorish politicians and Jewish social engineers are destroying America. (If this is still news to you, then you are either an infant or a world-class moron.) My indictment didn’t sit well with several commenters, however, so I was accused of being, among... Read More
Pho in Saigon, 2021
After six months in Albania, it was time to move on. Céline: “When you stay too long in the same place, things and people go to pot on you, they rot and start stinking for your special benefit.” Actually, this did not happen to me in Albania. The longer I stayed, the more I loved... Read More
Joe Slovo with Nelson Mandela
Steven Pinker (born 1954) is the Jewish academic whose scientific acumen enabled him to dismiss Kevin MacDonald’s books without taking the trouble to read them. Well, he got that wrong, and he got something else wrong, as I saw when I read an anodyne discussion between him and Richard Dawkins from 2008. According to Pinker,... Read More
The recent violence in South Africa wasn’t just a battle between different factions of the governing African National Congress. Clearly, there were tensions between black supporters of former president Jacob Zuma and current president Cyril Ramaphosa. Some Zuma supporters may never stop demanding his release from prison. However, there were deeper tensions and problems that... Read More
The U.S. Regime Media Narrative is consolidating on an explanation for South Africa’s riots: “inequality.” This conveniently avoids the point, brilliantly made recently on Revolver.news, that modern South Africa is explicitly founded on proto-Critical Race Theory i.e. whites are to blame for everything; and the result is a Trumpian sh*thole [South Africa–The First Country Built...

Police officers are positioned to deal with looting in Johannesburg, South Africa, on July 12, 2021. Soldiers have been deployed in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng provinces to deal with violent protests and looting. (Credit Image: © Yeshiel / Xinhua via ZUMA Press) Though most media covered it sparingly, South Africa nearly collapsed. Revolver has an excellent... Read More
Earlier, by Steve Sailer: I Am Become Death, Destroyer Of South Africa The U.S. corporate media is suspiciously uninterested in South Africa’s shocking unrest, although President Cyril Ramaphosa has had to send in troops and give three televised addresses in six days, actually invoking the Biden Regime’s favorite term “insurrection” [South Africa’s leaders fear fresh...

Against the backdrop of conflagration in South Africa, I offer positive commentary about the country of my birth. Do I need to provide a disclaimer before saying positive things about South Africa mid-riots? Probably—given that I’m the author of a scathing, 2011–dare I say prescient?– indictment of the political dispensation forced upon South Africa by... Read More
South Africa's regressive slide into a post-European failed state appears to be complete. The nation has been taken over by black rioters in the past few days. The catalyst was the arrest of former President Jacob Zuma, who was arrested earlier this month and sentenced to prison for charges related to his tenure's wave of... Read More
Institutionalized, systemic anti-whiteness, yoked to white hot, hatred of whites: That is the creed that is fast becoming entrenched across state and civil society in the U.S. Chiseled down, these are also the building blocks of Critical Race Theory, a specious, subintelligent concoction, originated by subpar intellectuals. The Critical Race project now pervades private and... Read More
Certain national-conservative governments in East Europe should be natural allies to conservative policy makers, stateside, if such unicorns existed. Vladimir Putin’s, for example. Before his death, from the safety of exile, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, one of Russia’s bravest and most brilliant sons, praised Putin’s efforts to revive Russia’s traditional Christian and moral heritage. For example: The... Read More

It seemed like an act of desperation. Twenty-five years after the fall of apartheid, South Africa’s Whites were counting on a Black man to save them from the corruption and malignancy of Black-majority rule. Its failure should have surprised no one. By all appearances, Mmusi Maimane was a South African Barack Obama. Smooth and polished,... Read More
I don’t know how many all-black communities there are in the world. Probably hundreds of thousands. In Africa, you expect to see all-black villages and towns. The cities are overwhelmingly black, with a sprinkling of whites and Asians. In the United States, many cities that were built by whites are now overwhelmingly black: Birmingham, Detroit,...

Both apartheid and the atlantic slave trade have generated an endless spectacle of remorse, or at least a media-generated pretense of remorse, especially in America and Great Britain. Spectacle aside, the real motive is to define, and therefore control, the past by reading it as an aspect of present political aims. “[R]itual apologies,” argues Jeremy... Read More
On February 2, 1990, 30 years ago, F. W. de Klerk, South Africa’s last white president, turned the screws on his constituents, betraying the confidence we had placed in him. I say “we,” because, prior to becoming president in 1989, Mr. de Klerk was my representative, in the greater Vereeniging region of Southern Transvaal, where... Read More
The Guardian's Dennis Webster, a hipster from rapidly gentrifying Johannesburg, recently ran a Rockefeller Foundation financed hit piece on the Boer town of Orania, located in South Africa's Northern Cape. The offense appears to be the 1600 person white enclave's success, economically and culturally. Webster's implication is that this is apartheid, and must be destroyed.... Read More
It is generally agreed that the Wechsler tests are one of the best measures of intelligence, and can be considered the gold standard. That is hardly surprising, because they cover 10 subtests and take over an hour, sometimes an hour and a half, for a clinical psychologist to administer. This gives the examiner plenty of...

Donald R. Morris’s epic tome, The Washing of the Spears: The Rise and Fall of the Zulu Nation, is the all-time PIG (Politically Incorrect Guide) to Zulu history. In it, Morris notes correctly that the Bantu, like the Boers, were not indigenous to South Africa. They “dribbled south” from some “reservoir in the limitless north,”... Read More
One ruling class replacing another is revolution. One people replacing another is conquest. Usually, revolution or conquest creates a new state. Yet sometimes the state survives the destruction of its core population. I would call this “state conquest.” It happened in South Africa in 1994 and it could happen in the United States. In 1994,...

Rainbow Nation shows its colors
South Africa is an ongoing topic of concern among the dissident right, which views it as a cautionary tale about the dangers of becoming a minority in your own country. The Rainbow Nation has been largely ignored by the mainstream media since the end of apartheid, but last year Donald Trump scandalized the global establishment... Read More
Identity Politics is now the defining characteristic of the liberal/progressive/left and the political ideology of the Democratic Party. It is an ideology of hatred preached against people whose skin is white. Identity Politics is completely inconsistent with a multicultural society. The West used economic pressure to force South Africa to turn over the government to... Read More

Monomaniacal Westerners—they have one thing on their minds: it begins with an “R”—have come to think and speak of apartheid as a theory of white supremacy. It was not. The policy of “separate development,” as it was admittedly euphemized, was not a theory of racial supremacy, but a strategy for survival. But first: To perceive... Read More

In a recent translation of Tacitus’ Annals, a question was raised as to whether “there were any ‘nations’ in antiquity other than the Jews.” Upon reflection, one suspects that the same question can be posed about the Afrikaners in the modern era. In fact, in April of 2009, former South African President Jacob Zuma infuriated... Read More
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa
He who believes he has a right to another man’s property ought to produce proof that he is its rightful owner. “As the old legal adage goes, ‘Possession is nine-tenths of the law,’ as it is the best evidence in our uncertain world of legitimate title. The burden of proof rests squarely with the person... Read More
White people can’t be victims. They can’t be discriminated against. Whites — as a group — can’t even be harmed. In the words of Stuff White People Like author Christian Lander, “It is always OK to make fun of white people, because no unhappy ending is possible.” The multicultural system assumes an all-encompassing “white privilege”...

Once upon a time there were two politicians. One had the power to give media and political elites goosebumps. Still does. The other causes the same dogs to raise their hackles. The first is Barack Hussein Obama; the second Vladimir Putin. The same gilded elites who choose our villains and victims for us have decided... Read More
Life in a failed multi-cultural society: Identity Politics At Work: Notice that at a Human Rights Day rally in Mpumalanga, “human rights” is associated with “cutting the throat of whiteness.” This legitimizes the murder and dispossession of South African whites, who have been in the country longer than most blacks, as an exercise in human...

(But Trump Can Take Executive Action NOW)
outh Africa’s white farmers have their collective heads on the block following the vote by the country’s parliament to expropriate their land without compensation. The plan’s main proponent, Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters party, says white farmers are “criminals” who must be driven off the land. Make no mistake, this is shorthand for...

Up until, or on the day, a predictable calamity unfolds in South Africa, you still find Western Media insisting that, No, there's no racial component to the butchering of thousands of white rural folks in ways that would make Shaka Zulu proud. No, the mutilated, tortured, white bodies of Boer and British men, women and... Read More

READERS were angry. I had rained on their parade by venturing that the appointment of a new party boss to head South-Africa's dominant party was an insignificant game of musical chairs. But perhaps it is I who should have been annoyed. Nobody with a modicum of cerebral agility should see in the new South-African Strong... Read More

On November 21, after 37 years in power, Zimbabwe's dictator, Robert Mugabe, resigned in infamy. By contrast, the late South African leader, Nelson Mandela, was revered in the West. His successor, Thabo Mbeki, was well-respected. Yet over the decades, both Mandela and Mbeki lent their unqualified support to Mugabe. When the baton was passed from... Read More

Not so long ago, mere mention of the deliberate murder of whites in South Africa—country folk and commercial farmers, in particular—was called "racist." "Raaacist!" the media collective brayed when candidate Trump retweeted a related "white genocide" hashtag. It's still "racist" to suggest that the butchering of these whites, almost daily, in ways that beggar belief,... Read More

Let’s Admit Some White Refugees!
The big issue in Europe is the ongoing invasion from Africa and the Middle East. If G-20 protestors were going to take to the streets and throw Molotov cocktails last weekend, THAT should have been their target. THAT’S the existential threat, the threat to Europe’s future–the future these millennials will have to live in. But... Read More

Yes, it has happened. A mere 23 years after the 1994 transition, in South Africa, to raw ripe democracy, six years following the publication of a wide-ranging analysis of that catastrophe, Into the Cannibal's Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa, a Beltway libertarian think tank has convened to address the problem that is...

Farming in South Africa is the most dangerous occupation in the world. Farmers there suffer more murders per-capita than any other community on earth outside a war zone. Since the dawn of democracy in the country, farming South Africa has been slaughtered by black South Africans in ways that would do Shaka Zulu[*] proud. The... Read More

The death of Nelson Mandela and the refusal of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to attend the funeral serve as a reminder of the somewhat tortuous relationship between South Africa and Israel as well as a notorious but little known spying case involving both nations and the Israel Lobby’s Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in the 1990s....

The “Black Jesus.” That’s what the late Nelson Mandela was called by many South Africans, who greeted his death last week with intense national mourning. Mandela was a great man, and great leader. But he was no Jesus. I rather call him “mahatma,” meaning great spirit, the Hindu title conferred upon Gandhi. Like Gandhi, Mandela,... Read More
