Why The Left Hates Israel

Leftists hate culture because it competes with Leftism for what gets to be the central goal of civilization. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in Soviet treatment of Israel, which parallels how Western Leftists treat white self-interest and Western Civilization: The Soviets soured on Israel for three reasons. First, Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, decided to side with the US against the USSR in the Cold War despite the State Department’s hostility toward Israel. Second, Ben-Gurion moved to purge Communists from the IDF and other power centers immediately after the War of Independence. Finally, the Soviets soured …

XOG Intensifies Desire To Remove Non-Narrative Content From Internet

The Xenophile Occupation Government (XOG) has through its Cathedral organs decided to work against memes. They will do so by creating a centralized registry of images, in which any tagged on one service will be banned on all. This is post-Orwellian madness designed to remove the presence of anything but the Leftist narrative: Web giants YouTube , Facebook , Twitter and Microsoft will step up efforts to remove extremist content from their websites by creating a common database. The companies will share ‘hashes’ – unique digital fingerprints they automatically assign to videos or photos – of extremist content they have …

End Affirmative Action

While many are talking about the options for the Alt Right in its campaign to push further for a sane civilization, one stands out as a tempting and easily conquered target: Affirmative Action. Affirmative Action pervades all areas of life in the West. The primary damage it does is by putting employers, renters and sellers on the defensive through the legal presumption that if an ethnic, sexual or gender minority is turned down, discrimination is to blame. This leads to vast payouts in the courtroom and has made companies paranoid, causing them to be overly-solicitous to non-majority people. In hiring, …

A Gen X Lament: The Alt Right

Two of the questions that have baffled writers in our time: Why do we not fight back? and Why are we failing to reproduce? The same answer addresses both: our people are existentially miserable. Existential misery refers to concerns related to existence itself. People who are existentially happy believe they have purpose, that the world is basically good or at least not headed toward failure, and that they will have meaningful lives. These are the questions of purpose and meaning that disturb our sleep in the middle of the night. Those who feel existentially lost sense that their lives have …

MR. PRESIDENT, TEAR DOWN THIS PATHOLOGY

The election of Donald J. Trump reaches to areas beyond politics. It shows a cultural shift against globalism and the farther-Left-than-moderate neoliberalism which drives it. It also shows a population adapting to the diversity agenda of post-WWII by formally adopting identity politics, decoupling self-interest from altruism. First it makes sense to clarify what the election was not. It was not the election of a radical conservative ideologue. Nor was it a vote of confidence in the conservative parties who first opposed the nomination of Mr. Trump in favor of more moderate, neoconservative candidates. This was a man seizing an opportunity …

DONALD TRUMP DELIVERS A GETTYSBURG ADDRESS

Coming on the wings of a campaign rebound, Donald Trump gave the media the detail that it wanted months ago, but now has very little room to attack. Speaking at a historical American battleground and symbol of the Civil War that formalized the division between liberal cosmopolitan cities and practical, realistic heartlands, Trump tackled present-day divisions in the nation. He mentioned being inspired by Lincoln, the president who (in theory) held the nation together. At that point, Trump named the enemy: “the system is rigged” in both Washington and on Wall Street. He mentioned the loss of jobs, many in …

What Do Conservatives “Conserve”?

VDARE always cuts to the chase, which is why it makes good daily reading. A recent article looked into the question the Alt Right has raised: the possible that “the end of history” has ended and liberal democracy has been debunked just as thoroughly as Communism. This in turn brings startling implications: Codevilla’s basic idea: the cultural revolution of the last 50 years has destroyed America as a constitutional republic. As many on the Alt Right have noted, there is nothing left to conserve. Growing up in a Leftist-dominated time, most of us on the Alt Right have never known …

Amerika’s Planned Economy Will Fail

President Woodrow Wilson was pivotal in the birth of The Amerikan Nation. One of the first all-in Progressives to gain power in the United States, Wilson wanted more and more aspects of life to be centrally controlled by the state under the excuse of ideological “good.” One particularly nefarious aspect of his power lust was his desire to grab the joystick and play the economy like a cheesy, old Atari game. He passed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and started the USSA down the road to serfdom and a planned economy.

News Media Is Entertainment Too

Some are finding themselves surprised — shocked! shocked, I tell you — that neither big media nor presumed “conservative” sources like Fox News are playing this video, which shows Leftists celebrating the violence they instigate at Trump rallies and chastising the Right for playing within the rules. This is not anomalous, but business as usual, because of what news media is: a business.

THE MEDIA FRONT BREAKS

Over the past few weeks, The Wall Street Journal has been hedging its bets—and distinguishing itself from its competition—by running more neutral perspectives in its stories on the election. As of today, however, the battle lines have been drawn as the Journal shines a spotlight on the corruption of Candidate Clinton: But even if average voters had the TV on 24/7, they still probably haven’t heard the news about Hillary Clinton: That the nation now has proof of pretty much everything she has been accused of. It comes from hacked emails dumped by WikiLeaks, documents released under the Freedom of …

Robert De Niro Bashes Trump, But Picked Up 15-Year-Old Prostitutes

Mr. Robert De Niro, unquestionably a talented actor for anyone who has seen Ronin, has recently made the news for his verbal attacks on Donald J. Trump after a leaked hot microphone tape emerged of the latter making lewd statements which were widely misinterpreted as an endorsement of sexual assault. However, [[[ De Niro ]]] — please excuse our “non-WASP” echo signal punctuation — was in the news fifteen years ago for his role in an underage prostitution ring: The case uncovers the brutal methods used to snare young women – some as young as 15 – into a call-girl …

The Death Of The Proposition Nation

As the disaster of liberal democracy crashes into the crater it has made for itself, human minds turn toward the question of what comes next. Our tendency is to want something “new,” but this is the type of spastic reaction that creates more of the same by avoiding the parts of the old that are still necessary. From a computer science viewpoint, we could view modernity as a “fork” or branching of previous society which began with the introduction of egalitarianism, or the idea that all people are equal, almost a thousand years ago. This began long before the French …

The Blank Check

For a long time now, politicians and activists have possessed a blank check they can use to approve for themselves nearly unlimited money and power. That $20 trillion debt was caused by social programs, not normal government functions like defense and infrastructure. This blank check consisted of a simple formula: if someone somewhere was experiencing “inequality” at some time, it was our obligation to help them, even if they had nothing in common with us. Nevermind that “inequality” is often indistinguishable from bad luck, bad choices or ineptitude.

AWAKEN!

Every now and then, you might run into a real person, even now. Unlike the usual people, real people have not entirely externalized their minds to money, social opinion and power. For such people, power is found within. They have the ability to do things, or to find out or discover how. They derive their self-esteem from moral and personality traits. They know what they like, and can sit alone in a silent room thinking for hours. These were once relatively common in the upper half of the population in Western nations. Now they are rare, hunted like dogs for …

There Is No Golden Age Without The Removal Of Defectives

Rod Dreher writes: I don’t believe there was ever a Golden Age. St. Augustine, in his City Of God, written after the Sack of Rome in 410, cautioned his readers to remember that the human condition (from a Christian point of view) is exile, and that any peace we have in the earthly city is “the peace of Babylon” — this, referencing the Hebrew exile there. It is true that I start our descent into our particular civilizational fragmentation in the West (I accept Bauman’s “liquid modernity” as accurately descriptive of our time) with the loss of metaphysical realism in …

#MEGA: Make Europeans Great Again

The Alt Right has drawn attention for its heroic mixture of libertarian laissez-faire with hard Right views that Europe and America have excluded from public mention in the year since WWII. This outlook reveals the two quests of the Alt Right: Get the Leftists off our backs and out of power in the near term. In the long term, restore the greatness of European civilization. Unlike the mainstream Right, the Alt Right is not about extremely short term measures and winning the “game” of politics through compromise and oversimplification. Its goal is to end the decline that has made Western …

Nationalism Is Continuity

A small amount of irony emerged when former Jobbik leader Csanad Szegedi recognized his Jewish heritage, and shifted his Nationalism toward the Jewish people: Csanad Szegedi had been a rising star in the anti-immigration party Jobbik, which had been accused of anti-Semitism, when he admitted his grandmother was a Holocaust survivor in 2012. Following the discovery of his family’s tragic history, the 34-year-old renounced all ties to the party and converted to Judaism. Now he told Hebrew language newspaper Ma’ariv he is waiting to become an Israeli citizen so he contribute to the fight against anti-Semitism. On the surface, according to the Modern Moron™ …

Restorationists

No one knows what conservatives conserve anymore. The average person thinks that conservatives preserve the current social order, which is far from true for anyone who has a conservative outlook; to such a person, we live in a fallen time and what is required is an undoing of the radical changes that have occurred, knowing that such changes will appear “radical” or “extreme” solely because we are so far off the path.

The Uppity Negro

There is something hardwired in all of us that rages when we see a member of another Tribe acting defiant amongst us. In this we find the origin of the Uppity Negro trope that afflicts the South: if someone is not of our Tribe, his duty is to act deferential and respectful, but if he starts acting jubilant and mocking us… then we know there is a problem.

Monkey Dynamics

Throughout human history, one constant has appeared in all ages: the temptation to give in to evil. The root of evil originates in individualism, or the desire for the individual to be more important than the order of reality. In the classic view, all of reality is a hierarchy, with the divine at the top and the rest arrayed below, and everything has a place like in an ecosystem, assuring balance and harmony with a constant inner struggle that produces people and things of quality, much like Darwinism or martial competitions.

Neurotics

No one worries about the collapse of lower-IQ societies. Such societies exist at a subsistence level, so that catastrophes are actually not much of a threat to the society as a whole, and successes are so mild that they destabilize nothing.
