HAPPY "FREEDOM DAY" TO SOUTH AFRICA




The 27th of April is "Freedom Day" in South Africa. This is a public holiday held to commemorate the first 'free' elections when millions of voters, who can be relied upon to vote blindly and unthinkingly for the ANC, were allowed to vote.

The day also marks the transformation of the pariah Apartheid state into the "Rainbow Nation," an event which saw White South Africans suddenly transformed, in the eyes of the Westrn media, from evil, racist Boers to tolerant, enlightened SWPLs. This improvement of image was definitely something worth accepting minority status for.

THE DEATH OF JONATHAN BOWDEN

by Alex Kurtagic

The Beast of Berkshire


I first saw him in London, in April 2008, at one of the bimonthly New Right meetings—a metapolitical forum he’d been chairing for three years. I had never previously attended the meetings and I had never previously heard of Jonathan Bowden.

Due to railway network delays, we arrived late. It was a gloomy day. The room was dark, steamy, pre-Victorian, crammed with middle-aged men—serious and angry to the last.

FASCIST ART FOR THE THIRD WORLD

by Andy Nowicki

Across the Western world, monuments which display the prowess and might of the (White) nation are widely regarded passe relics of a patently benighted, pre-multicultural age, rife with racist bigotry and colonial-minded arrogance. Thus locations like Trafalgar Square in London, the Arc de Triomph in Paris, and the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria are often viewed warily by antifa-types as unfortunate reminders that white people haven't always felt compelled to apologize for their very existences, and may yet refuse to be cowed into supine quiescence.

ON FASCISM

Published in 1948. Taken from the collection “Nashi Zadachi” and translated by Mark Hackard.

by Ivan Ilyin

Fascism is a complex phenomenon: it is multifaceted and historically speaking, far from exhausted. Within it one finds elements of health and illness, old and new, protection and destruction. Therefore in an evaluation of fascism fair-mindedness and equanimity are needed. But its dangers must be considered in full.

THE WILL TO REACT

by Mark Hackard

In an 1849 letter to a friend, Juan Donoso Cortes, Marques of Valdegamas and noble son of Spain, touched upon the essence of Christendom:
"After the cult owed to God, there is nothing more beautiful than the cult of our ancestors."
With this casual observation, Donoso was able to express traditional Europe’s hierarchy of values and discern the contingent from the Absolute. The heritage of our fathers is accorded veneration, and to the God of our fathers we render all worship. Each nation, a communion of generations- the dead, the living and those yet to be born – is called to glorify Him in its own unique and unrepeatable way. Herein is found the true greatness of a culture.

GREENS, BLUES, AND THE EXTINCTION OF DISTINCTION

by Derek Turner
Ka ngaro I te ngaro a te Moa (“We are lost as the moa is lost”)
Maori lament
There he kneels, the young, proud, ignorant farmer – posing smiling with his dog and gun, and the unusual-looking predator he has just killed propped up against the fence. It is lunchtime on 13 May 1930, in Mawbanna in north-western Tasmania, and Wilfred Batty has just made melancholy history. The dead lupine creature with the stripes is a thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus – “dog-headed pouched one”) actually a marsupial wolf but inevitably called a Tasmanian Tiger, and Batty was the last man in the world to have shot one in the wild.

WHEN THEY SMELL BLOOD


We have recently witnessed how, thanks to the craven capitulation of editor and author of Rich ‘Al Sharpton is Right’ Lowry, the now former National Review columnist, John Derbyshire, is no longer among the dead.

And we have also witnessed how, in their inimitably self-righteous, prissy style, equality zealots in the pay of ideological ‘news’ sources have exploded with jubilation, spewing gleeful venom into rants about Derbyshire’s ‘racism’ and conservative 'hate.'

THE SURVIVOR

by Andy Nowicki

Most of our readers are aware that I extensively researched the Columbine High School massacre of April 20, 1999 en route to composing my novel The Columbine Pilgrim. While studying Columbine, I’ve befriended many other people, who for one reason or another find themselves drawn to the scrutiny and analysis of this most sensational and horrific of all high school spree killings in history.

Recently, through Utah-based Columbine researcher Reta Wallis, I was fortunate enough to meet Columbine survivor Richard Castaldo. Over the course of speaking to Reta and myself, Mr. Castaldo—whose crippled body is still riddled with bullets fired from the rifles of the Columbine gunmen—has spoken of his memories of that day, and in so doing, has revealed certain crucial details that he has never told anyone before. Now, as an exclusive story broken here, Richard’s sure-to-be-controversial account is told for the first time, on the eve of the 13 year anniversary of the Columbine shooting.

THE ASYMMETRY OF AMERICA



During Easter Christians like to remember the crucifixion of an innocent man for his words, so it was entirely appropriate that John Derbyshire was sacked at this time from the National Review for innocently writing an article for another magazine that intruded on America's central taboo of race. But there was more to it than that. This case also helps to reveal some of the "uncomfortable truths" (notice how these two words increasingly go together) about America and the decline of the national discourse once represented by the likes of the National Review.

This wasn’t the first time Derbyshire had expressed "politically incorrect" views on race. In the past he has even admitted to being a "tolerant racist," so one has to wonder about the timing of his dismissal. Perhaps it was because his latest article came too close to the canonization of America's latest saint, Saint Trayvon of Sanford, the patron saint of Skittles, or perhaps it was the fact that Derbyshire's face was an increasingly bad fit among the growing ranks of wet-behind-the-ears, multicultural, Israel-loving Neo-Cons who have now 'occupied' the National Review.

DERBYSHIRE IN THE ESTABLISHMENT'S CROSSHAIRS

by Andy Nowicki

John Derbyshire, it seems, has penned a little article over at Takimag, one which has the good folks at the UK Guardian fulminating wildly and foaming at the mouth with rage, albeit in their impeccably polite, formal, prissy, stiff-upper-lipped manner:
In the piece, which Derbyshire wrote for Taki's Magazine, a self-styled "libertarian fanzine" run by controversial right-wing Greek socialite Taki Theodoracopulos, he suggests the outline of a "talk" that all such parents should give their children.

REPLY TO BARDAMU

by Andy Nowicki

I thank Ferdinand Bardamu (aka Matt Forney) for responding (dead link) to my article “In Defense of ‘Squares,'” which was in itself a response to Jack Donovan’s “The Trouble with Squares.” Greg Johnson has also weighed in on this matter his article “Be Yourself?” in which he proposes a kind of synthesis of Ferd’s and my respective arguments.
