THE BETRAYAL OF THE ALT-RIGHT


The Alt-Right is essentially a dead movement that has been betrayed by the attempts of its would-be leaders to nail it down and concretise it as something in the real world.

The Alt-Right is a living movement, with a powerful polymorphous energy that transcends all petty attempts made to brand it and profit from it.

AT&T'S ANTI WHITE MALE ADVERTISEMENT HAS AN IRONIC AND SUBVERSIVE SUBTEXT

by Andy Nowicki
@Andy Nowicki

AT&T, being a powerful, multinational corporate conglomerate, is obviously affiliated with that malignant monster known collectively by many ominous designations ("the Deep State," "the Oligarchy," "the Pedovorous Elite," and so forth).

THE CULTURE OF MANIPULATION


The magnum opus of the late Sam Francis, Leviathan And Its Enemies, significantly expanded and improved upon James Burnham’s theory of the managerial revolution. One way in which Francis built upon the original framework of Burnham was to make a distinction between soft managerialism, the consent-manufacturing type practiced in Western ‘liberal democracies’, and hard managerialism, the coercive type practiced in the authoritarian states of Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany. This aspect of Francis’s theory deserves attention, I think, because it makes an important correction to Burnham that itself requires fuller clarification.

KIM ENSURES STATUS-BOOSTING TRUMP MEETING BY MEANINGLESS CONCESSIONS

by Trad News

Get used to it. We live in an age of fake new, false flags, and phoney wars.

Just recently, Trump responded to a fake gas attack with what was essentially a fake bombing, Now the next big story is that Kim Jong-Un, the dictatorial leader of North Korea, has stopped testing nuclear missiles and has closed down the research facility that carried out the tests.

ENOCH POWELL: THE MAN AND HIS POLITICS



Fifty years ago today, Enoch Powell made perhaps the most famous speech in British politics, the "Rivers of Blood" speech, warning against the dangers of mass immigration.

HITLER AS AN EXPRESSION OF GERMAN "BAD FORM"


Today we enter “The Twelve Days of Hitler,” the period between the anniversary of the birth of the Adolf Hitler (20th April) and the anniversary of the announcement of his death (1st May). It’s a bit like Black History Month for 1488ers, but many other people also take an interest.

DANCING DADS OF DOOM

@AndyNowicki

Apparently for some time now, though I'm not sure exactly how long, "baby dancing," a unique species of aerobic dance jazzercise, has been a thing that some young mothers do.

IDENTITY POLITICS AND THE GROWING CULTURAL RIFT IN AMERICA

21st Century Bugman
by Sloan Kettering

The demographic change among the American electorate has many political consequences for how campaigns are run. Growing partisanship coupled with ideological radicalization of the parties is a result not only of the browning of America, but also a geographic and cultural schism in society. This essay will revisit the 2016 presidential election, dissecting the underlying war of cultures with a particular focus on the elements of identity politics relevant to Hillary’s defeat.


LIBERTARIANISM IS PLUTOCRATIC COLLECTIVISM: A RIPOSTE TO JEFFREY TUCKER

by Richard Wolstencroft

Let's talk about Libertarianism and one of its charismatic figures, Jeffrey Tucker from the American Institute for Economic Research. I am Facebook friends with the bow-tie-wearing don, and I have been studying his ideas and his views as they present themselves to my enquiring, inquisitive mind.

VAST INTERNATIONAL COALITION OF THREE COUNTRIES BOMB EMPTY SYRIAN ROOMS

by Trad News

A vast international coalition of nations, spanning the world from Washington to London, over the English Channel to Paris, and then back to Washington again, has taken action to show its opposition to unverified videos of children having water poured on them and crying.

VIDEO: JONATHAN BOWDEN, FRAMING FROM THE MARGINS


Today is the birthday of Jonathan Bowden, one of the most potent thinkers and speakers of the radical right, who tragically died in 2012 at the age of 49. In this video from Black Gnosis, filmed in 2009, he holds forth on a wide range of topics, from inequality, race, and gender to religion, philosophy, and public speaking, fielding questions from members of the London New Right.

THOUGHTS ON THE STATE OF THE RIGHT



There’s no sense in mincing words anymore: the Alt-Right has hit a wall, and is faced with the hard task of pulling back and searching for a new course. The enemy media are (prematurely) claiming victory. Many progressives are hastening to vindicate the ‘antifa’ domestic terrorist movement, discarding the pretence that liberal misgivings about organised political violence hinge on anything more than crass utilitarianism.

My purpose here is to offer some thoughts on what has happened and how our side can hope to recover its ground. I do not wish to exaggerate the present difficulties, nor blame people in the Alt-Right for suffering a form of outsourced government repression. However, repression by those in power is a constant for us; what has changed is the effectiveness of this repression, which used to meet with a fluid, agile and durable target, and now increasingly enjoys a sluggish, clumsy and brittle one. One major reason for this is that prominent figures in the Alt-Right, protected by a widespread culture of hooting down internal dissent, took strategic and aesthetic decisions that have ended up transforming an antifragile movement into a destructible one.

A PRAYER FOR WAR (REDUX)

by Daniel Barge

It's often said that war brings out the best and worst in people. Now, as the Syrian crisis flares up on President Trump's Twitter and the media, there is tough talk aplenty. We may even see ships being moved into position, or hear the distant roar of aircraft being moved from base to base.

Inevitably there are those who say war never solved anything (not quite true) and that what is needed is a political solution. But, then, this is countered with the idea that talk is cheap and that there is only one language certain people [fill in blank] understand.

NO WAR IN SYRIA....IT'S OFFICIAL (MAYBE)


Unfairly banned from his YouTube page but still mind-jamming the internet from his back-up page, Andy Nowicki considers the (im)possibility of real war in Syria from the bottom of an extremely deep well of public cynicism.

SHORTPOD (20): WAR DRUMS & FALSE FLAGS

Affirmative Right's Chief Editor Colin Liddell comments on the beating of war drums and the waving of false flags over the Syrian crisis.

Is war now inevitable, or are we about to see a repeat of what happened last year with a few novelties added?
