The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters
New York: Simon & Schuster, 2015
The presidential election of 1896 has a deep influence on American culture. The classic book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, first published in 1900, may have been an allegory of the election. The election re-aligned political coalitions which gave Republicans the White House (minus the Woodrow Wilson exception) from 1896 until 1933. McKinley’s election also swept away much of the lingering bitterness of the Civil War.
This is Rebel Yell – a Southern Nationalist podcast of the Alt-Right. I’m you host, Musonius Rufus. For our 35th episode of Rebel Yell, our talk with Paddy Tarleton, last week, became a full-blown discussion with Jayoh de la Rey about the decay of White societies in the United States and Africa.
Catlady Ascendancy hierophant Hillary Clinton recently published a post on her campaign website blaspheming against the avatar Pepe, who is a meme incarnation of the Egyptian pagan god of chaos, Kek. The offensive post, “Donald Trump, Pepe the frog, and white supremacists: an explainer,” describes one of the freshest pepes, a photoshopped movie poster for The Expendables movie franchise that instead features The Deplorables, as “an odd photo” and the “frog standing directly behind Trump” as “a symbol associated with white supremacy.”
Certainly the most basic issue of the Alt Right is that it is entirely legitimate for Whites to identify as Whites and to pursue their interests as Whites, such as resisting attempts to make White Americans a minority.
Ethnic and racial identities are common among all other groups, and, despite constant propaganda emanating from centers of media and academic power, Whites should be no exception. Voluntarily ceding political and cultural power is the ultimate foolishness, particularly in an atmosphere of non-White grievance and the hostility towards Whites, their history and their culture, that is so apparent today.
So this is the third time I’ve done this (1, 2). Maybe I have a problem, but perusing the comments section at the New York Times is like watching a slow motion trainwreck in occupied Poland. I just can’t look away. Charles M. Blow’s latest article, “Donald Trump is Lying in Plain Sight,” brings the cucks home to roost with a vengeance.
On the day Black Lives Matter UK invaded Heathrow airport and disrupted the holiday schedule of thousands of white families, the London Evening Standard carried a video taken from CCTV footage of a white woman being dragged off her feet by her neck and violently mugged by two blacks, having a ring yanked from her finger. As the Lefties and black activists crowed on Twitter about the havoc they had caused at Heathrow, that white woman was sitting with a police medic, in shock and traumatized, calling her family to explain she’d been mugged.
Recently, Jewish conservative Dennis Prager made the commonsense argument that Jews should quit supporting Leftist causes because the Left, as he says, “is not our friend.” His piece, which appeared in the Jewish Journal on August 31, describes quite clearly how leftist radical organizations such as Black Lives Matter, MoveOn, Code Pink, and others reject not only Israel’s right to exist, but also the rights of Israel-supporting Jews to be part of these organizations.
Yet Left-wing Jews continue to support them. Prager gives the example of prominent Jews such as Leonard Bernstein and Sidney Lumet who lent their support to the Black Panthers in the 1970s despite knowing what violent thugs the Panthers really were. But this love for left-wing causes, as Prager points out, “has never been reciprocated. The left (not traditional liberals, it must be noted) has been Jew-hating (and later, Israel-hating) throughout its history.”
The ancestral continent of all White people, Europe, can still be roughly divided in two according to the results of World War II. The East, which remained under Communist occupation for half a century, is still different in many aspects from the West. Most importantly, this difference is manifested in values and philosophical outlooks on the world. As compared to the West, Eastern Europe looks like more of a nationalist stronghold with each passing year.
I remember 9/11. It’s not something you forget. It traumatized an entire country for months, but how people reacted to it then and interpret it now is probably the world’s most macabre Rorschach test. What did it all mean? What had happened? What was happening? What was going to happen next? Why? How people who lived through 9/11 answer these questions and whatever consensus is ultimately ironed out to be fed to future generations is of no small importance. 9/11, more than any other event in US history since the Civil War, will be the ever present past for a long time to come.
When numbers get into the billions or trillions, they start to lose context. As Visual Capitalist’s Jeff Desjardins notes, the U.S. national debt is one of those numbers. It currently sits at $19.5 trillion, which is actually such a large number that it is truly difficult for the average person to comprehend.
Dara Halley-James is the pseudonym of an author who has published well-received “mainstream” books under her real name. The following is the first in an extended series of excerpts from the penultimate draft of the forthcoming book The Sixty Million: How Leading Jewish Communists, Zionists and Neocons Brought on a Dozen Holocausts.
1. The ‘vale of tears’ fabrication that implies that average Jews have had it much worse over the past millennium than have average Gentiles, when in fact Jewish evolutionary strategy has been to ally Jewish communities with the higher ranks of the Gentile ‘powers that be’, which invariably entailed the protection of the Jewish community by those ‘powers that be’ in return for rendering the economic service of optimally exploiting the peasantry—that protection and economic role constituting a highly-desirable combination that would have been the envy of Gentile commoners.
The following introduction to Aristotle’s Politics focuses on the issues of freedom and popular government. It is a reworking of a more “academic” text penned in 2001.
Part I: The Aim and Elements of Politics
1. The Necessity of Politics
Aristotle is famous for holding that man is by nature a political animal. But what does this mean? Aristotle explains that,
“Judeo-Christian is not merely anti-Christian propaganda, but as one rabbi points out, it is also antisemitic:
The Constitution entitles you to your opinions and religious beliefs and even affords you the right to express those convictions in your pursuit of public office. But as a Jew and a rabbi, I am writing to ask you to please leave me, Judaism and my people out of your rhetoric. Don’t use “Judeo-Christian” to try to appropriate my religion and my people’s history to advance your agenda.
If there was an easy to explain theory that caused a controlled demolition of your detractors’ entire political worldview and left it neatly collapsed into its own footprint, wouldn’t you like to know how to articulate it? Incredibly, r/K selection theory seems to be able to do exactly this. It shows without a doubt why a conservative, back to traditions type of sociopolitical system is the healthiest and most natural approach for the human species to embrace.
A few years ago I realized I did not know what I believed. A great deal of this had to do with the fact that I was a philosophy major. If you ask a philosopher if he believes in X he mentally translates that question into “can I prove that X is true?” And then he answers that question rather than the one you actually asked.
For example, if you ask him “Do you believe in God?” his mind makes that “Can you prove that God exists?” and he answers no. Then — classic situation — two hours later he receives word that his wife has been critically injured in a car accident and he finds himself praying on the way to the hospital. By this I mean that he does not set out to pray. He does not choose to do it. It is not the result of a rational calculation. He just does it, and then notices himself doing it and is surprised — or worse.
Sacco Vandal and Vanzetti Vandal
The American Militant Nationalist Manifesto
Bath, Ohio: Vandal Brothers, 2015
The American Militant Nationalist Manifesto is an important book. And that is true for several reasons. First and foremost, because the authors say things that need to be said. Second, because the time is right for it, especially in view of the staggering events of this year in Europe and, to a lesser extent, in the United States — for now. And third, because it makes accessible to a general readership some of the ideas of Oswald Spengler and Francis Parker Yockey. And if the authors owe a debt to Spengler and Yockey, it is also true that Yockey and Spengler now owe a debt to the Vandal Brothers for making those ideas accessible to that readership. Nevertheless, the book is far from a mere re-hash of Spengler or Yockey, for the authors have also included their own insights and ideas.
Bind Us Apart: How Enlightened Americans Invented Racial Segregation
New York: Basic Books, 2016
Throughout history, whites have tended to feel a need to dissect the philosophical implications and practical consequences of their actions. Passion and emotion are rarely the driving forces behind white historical movement. Ideas are considered and debated, actions taken based on those ideas are considered and debated, and then finally the actual consequences of those actions are analyzed — often for millennia. One of the advantages of the study of American history is that it provides us with a relatively recent and well-documented archive with which to work. The tension inherent in the merging of the social and the political can be charted and analyzed more easily in America than in other geographical areas and historical eras due to our proximity to it.
Jeff Goldstein of The Federalist has thrown up an article claiming the Alt Right is a mirror image of the New Left. There is some truth in that. Without the New Left’s full-frontal assault on American culture, history, and identity, the Alt Right would probably not exist. If America were still a White, Christian nation, we would still likely be humming along, ignoring contradictions in our society, and the biggest issue in politics would be the looming Social Security crisis.
In the olden days, left-wing people used to like working-class people.
Lots of left-wing people used to be working-class people. These people were known as socialists and joined trade unions.
Sometimes working-class people used to frighten left-wing people, but they pretended that they weren’t frightened and were nice to them.
We can pretty much tell how far along a conservative is on the road to the Alt-Right by gauging his reaction to the latest storm-in-a-teacup outrage still brewing on social media. On August 26th, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem.
Kaepernick, who is half-black and was raised entirely by whites after being abandoned before birth by his deadbeat black father, cited his opposition to a country which “oppresses black people and people of color” as his reason for dissing the anthem.
