UNBROKEN: A WHITE CHRISTMAS ARRIVES


When I first saw the preview for Unbroken a few months ago, I was intrigued and a bit mystified, as I reported in an earlier piece. Having now seen the movie, I am still intrigued, and remain mystified. With the Christmas day release of this film, I am convinced that something must be afoot; I just can’t quite figure out what.

PODCAST 23: 2014 YEAR OF THE DINDU


Andy and Colin are joined by Richard Spencer of Radix Journal and NPI and Michael Enoch of the The Right Stuff and the Daily Shoah to look back on 2014, the year of the non-story posing as the real story and the real story posing as the non-story. 


While America's SJW-driven media pushed hollow narratives of police brutality against "dindu nuffins" and "rape culture," the Ukraine saw a proxy war breaking out between Russia and America, with both parties claiming they too "dindu nuffin."


A CLOSER LOOK AT SAILER'S CITIZENISM

In my most recent VDare piece, in which I argued that the Alternative Right needs to move beyond being a culture of critique, and devote more energy to formulating an appealing and intellectually coherent ideal, in passing, I criticized Steve Sailer’s Citizenism as unfit for this role.

I wrote that Sailer was “emblematic of this gap in the [thought of the] Dissident Right [between the quality of our criticisms of Egalitarian Universalism and the inadequacy of the alternatives to it that we have thus far offered].” So here, I’d like to very briefly outline my reasons in a bit more detail.

VIDEO: TOMMY ROBINSON SPEAKING AT THE OXFORD UNION


Tommy Robinson, British political prisoner and ex-leader of the English Defence League, giving an impassioned speech at the Oxford Union in November, 2014. He talks about Muslim-inspired rape, violence, and terrorism in his home town of Luton, and the facilitating role that the British police and legal system have played in the process. 

ORPHAN “ANNIE” AND THE CULTURAL WELFARISM OF BLACK AMERICA

Tomorrow...more White roles will be given to Blacks.


It’s a familiar narrative by now in the multicultural West – the Blackification of former White characters and cultural icons in movies.

Often it is just floated as a possibility – as it was with James Bond a couple of years back – in order to raise the media profile of a coming release and save money on advertising. But sometimes it actually happens, as with Annie, a recent release from the troubled Sony Pictures, which casts Black “actresslette” Quvenzhané Wallis in the role of the red-haired feisty orphan girl (the red hair had to go and the freckles became a whole lot bigger!).

ON THE OCCASION OF OUR BIRTHDAY

It’s an interesting coincidence that the New Alternative Right shares the same birthday as the Bright and Morning Star, the Alpha and Omega, the Ancient of Days, the Prophet of Nazareth, the Eternal Judge of the Quick and the Dead, and the Light of the World – all epithets of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of Mankind for the World’s Christians.

We can’t quite claim to be all those things...yet, but in the first year of our operation, we like to think that we have at least cast a few opinions on both the "quick and the dead" and spread a glimmer of light to our many readers across the globe.

ANDY & COLIN INTERVIEWED BY RED ICE RADIO


Andy and Colin were recently interviewed by Henrik Palmgren, the host and Editor-in-Chief of Red Ice Radio, a major independent radio program and news website based in Sweden with an uncompromising mission to get at the truth. 

ALT-RIGHT PODCAST 22: HACKING HOLLYWOOD

Matt Parrott joins Andy and Colin to talk about the Sony Pictures hack that has temporarily lifted the lid on a major Hollywood studio.

They speculate on who is behind the hack, how much dirt is still to be released, and whether the movie at the center of the story, The Interview,  will eventually become a long-running and highly successful franchise.

WE ALL BLEED RED

The herd hates it when people break away. If it has a single idea, hidden behind the rationalizations it gives for its power, the herd follows one code above all else: everyone must be included. Everyone must get along. All are part of the group.

A common argument made against any dissidence from this totalitarian standard is “But we all bleed red.” Notwithstanding the fact that this is nonsense — all mammals bleed red — it violates the most fundamental human right, which is that of exclusion. We have nothing approximating “freedom” or “liberty” until we can keep others out of what we create.

PROPAGANDA OF THE NEED: JOIN OR DIE?

Fresh from the fappening.
 

In Mockingjay Part 1, the latest cinematic installment of the futuristic sci-fi dystopian Hunger Games saga, civil unrest in the kingdom of Panem has flamed into full-fledged civil war. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence, duly topful here, unlike in her now quite ubiquitously-ogled homemade modeling portfolio) has been rescued from peril by leaders of a resistance movement intent upon deposing the cruel and ruthless President Coriolanus Snow (a scowling, smirking Donald Sutherland) and his regime of oppression and terror.

For the first time, however, we see that the resistance is hardly a ragtag, insignificant, or underfunded outfit. In fact, led by ambitious District 13 President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore) and her right-hand man Plutarch Heavensbee (the late, great Phillip Seymour Hoffman), the rebels dwell in a massive, state-of-the-art underground facility, and have access to a sophisticated apparatus of weaponry. If they aren't nearly as powerful as the military forces which serve the Capitol and faithfully execute Snow's murderous orders, neither are they Ewokian spear-bearing nomads hanging out in the woods, living in thatched huts and fashioning slingshots out of tree branches. While certainly outnumbered and outgunned, this rebellion is nevertheless poised to create considerable mischief and raise unholy hell.

THE FAILURE OF PUTIN

Putin – Dr. Evil or Mini-Me?

Things either have logical coherence or they don’t. If they do, then there is a high chance that every component element is sound and true, each validated by the other. If they don’t have logical coherence, then obviously something is false and wrong, and we can begin the search for the flawed or broken element.

For a long time, those on the alternative right have tried to view Putin as some kind of saviour, as a force for traditionalism and a much-needed opponent to a globalist West run amok. But who is there among us who has not had his doubts? We all have, and those who haven’t can be dismissed as idiots or unthinking Slavophiles.

ANDROID EXISTENCE

"In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet."


In his classic, prophetic novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, American science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick depicted a future dystopia where the only way to determine the difference between humans and rogue, bio-engineered androids was empathy: the latter were incapable of experiencing and thus demonstrating it.

WHEN DISASTERS AND MADMEN HAPPEN

Man Haron Monis, exhibiting the early signs of insanity.


The premise of the satirical movie Idiocracy was that modernity, by making the world safe for idiots, would create a dysgenic system leading to a world of morons. We are obviously well on the way.

With various fail-safe systems and procedures now in place, we see the effects of this all around us. Any idiot can get in a car and drive any way he wants and the airbag will save him, and if that doesn’t the paramedics will. These idiots are no longer going to die. They will have to be killed or at least neutered.

WINNING AND LOSING IN SCANDINAVIAN POLITICS

Swedish Democrats: Nationalism with flowers.

Parliamentary politics is a dirty game played by dirty people in which the good guys almost always lose. But occasionally the least dirty of the dozen ends up with the winning hand. This is what happened when the mildly nationalist party, the Swedish Democrats, pulled the rug out from under the feet of the Social Democrats.

Having only been in power in the Swedish parliament for less than two months, the Social-Democrat-led minority government now has to schedule a new parliamentary election in March next year. This is thanks to the Swedish Democrats, who earlier this month voted against the proposed 2015 Finance Bill. This proved to be a genius move, and saw the Swedish Democrats soar to 17.7 % in the opinion polls, leaving the Social Democrats foaming at the mouth with anger.

JAIL DIARY OF A THOUGHT CRIMINAL


Editor's note: the following harrowing tale is reprinted with permission from www.heretical.com. It is the first person account of Simon Sheppard, a British dissident who was arrested and imprisoned for speaking his mind on a controversial subject. For the record, I don’t in the least care whether he is right or wrong in his beliefs. The point is that the man actually sat in a jail cell for the "crime" of promulgating a non-mainstream take on a historical event. He is, in short, a political prisoner, if ever there was one, and hardly the only one of his kind in the West (i.e., that region of the world which, until recently, had commonly and altogether un-ironcially been referred to as the "free world"). A.N.

DEMOCRACY OF THE ACT

Local democracy in a post-democratic age.


The peoples of Europe have been involved in a massive shell and pea game. I’m not quite sure when exactly the switch was made, but it was definitely made sometime, because when the shells stopped moving and we took our pick, there was no pea to be seen. The democracy we thought we were getting had dematerialized into rules, regulations, dictates from Brussels, "human rights" legislation, mind-control from the media, and supranational bodies telling us what to do all the time about everything!

“Where is our democracy?” we feebly ask, confused that, having jumped through the hoops and done the little dance with the ballot papers and boxes, we are still not getting it. Instead we get what they decide to give us. We get what we don’t want – exactly what we don't want. Then, when we complain, we are shown our signatures on the order form. "Yup, that's us," we meekly concur, scratching our heads. "I guess we did vote for that after all, but...but..." No buts. Welcome to post-democracy.

EQUALITY, EQUALITY EVERYWHERE, BUT NOT A DROP TO DRINK

Odaiba, Tokyo.


Recently I ventured on foot across the ominously named "Rainbow Bridge," which spans Tokyo Bay, to visit the artificially created land of Odaiba. When Tokyo holds the Olympics in 2020, this is the area that will host the athletes' village as well as many of the other facilities and venues.

I say ominously-named, because "rainbow," rather than pleasant associations of sunshine after rain or pots of gold left by leprechauns, now has more disturbing ideological connotations; whether it is the "Rainbow Nation" of South Africa, with its genocidal tendencies, or the rainbow flag used to promote the deconstruction of gender roles in the West and the promotion of mass, multi-partner buggery.

But while Japan keeps a tight watch on its borders – at least for now – the nation and its culture occasionally pay lip service to the globalized Western (ab)norms now symbolized by the borderless gradations of the chromatic spectrum.

IDIOT OF THE MONTH: THE BURK FROM BERKELEY



There has been a lot of competition for the much-coveted Alternative Right Idiot of the Month Award recently, with special efforts being made by white, liberal, anti-police-brutality protesters, keen to show solidarity with the "Black Community" but somehow getting roughed up in the process. 

THE BRITISH DEMOCRATS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING


The most important nationalist party to emerge from the wreckage of the BNP is probably the British Democratic Party, which was founded two years ago. This video from their recent AGM, features speeches by the party’s President Andrew Brons and some other members. Brons talks about the results of the party’s efforts to build pockets of support while maintaining a low profile.

Well worth watching is Jim Lewthwaite’s excellent speech (from 7:00). He discourses on how the rise of UKIP has helped to legitimize nationalist agendas that it cannot fulfill, and how the BDP can capitalize on this.

An important concept mentioned by Lewthwaite is recapturing the word “internationalist” from the Left by correctly defining it as a dialogue between nationalists from different countries, rather than the anti-nationalism or supra-nationalism that it mistakenly connotes today.



THE HOBBIT SYNDROME

Why we should keep looking to the Stars.


by Roman Bernard

Alternative Right recently published a response to my Radix review of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Written by Eugene Westerly, its very title, Space: the Final Capitulation suggested that the writer had not read my take on Elysium before writing his piece. Originally titled Elysium: an Allegory of White Flight, this review was first published in August 2013 at Alternative Right, and more recently at Radix after Richard Spencer and I had recorded our podcast on Interstellar.

My Elysium piece insisted on the dangers of using outer space as an escape to the problems facing us down here. I could have simply posted the link in the comments section, but while reading Eugene's article, I found that more explanations were in order, on the subject of White flight as well as others.

HATE CRIME HOAXES AND JEALOUS GODS

         

With the University of Virginia frathouse gang rape story officially unraveling, we see yet another iteration of what has become a new American tradition: the campus hate crime hoax.

Technically, I know that rape is not a "hate crime" (a dubious designation in itself), but this case was already being predictably treated as such by prominent feminists and entrenched academic activists, who generally like to bray about "toxic masculinity" and "rape culture" whenever possible.

As with the Duke lacrosse case several years ago, the pieces were all in place here: the alleged rapists were rich, Southern white frat boys, a group which checks off all boxes in the Cult-Marx manual of easy vilification of the so-called "privileged." In the wake of one girl's lurid and generally incredible (and, as we now are finding, thoroughly non-credible) account of events concerning said incorrigible racist-sexist-homophobic-Southern-preppy-whitebread ritualistic rapists, on a campus moreover condemned in a breathlessly credulous Rolling Stone article as "overwhelmingly blond" (boo! hiss!), a massive reeducation campaign had been readied, the better to indoctrinate anyone with the temerity to hold out against the mandated ruling ideologies, which after all require supine allegiance at the cost of one's livelihood, reputation, and future. Our rulers are jealous gods, indeed.

ALT-RIGHT PODCAST 21: INTERVIEW WITH THE EDITRIX

Ann Sterzinger domina-editrix of Takimag.com

Andy converses with Ann Sterzinger, the "editrix" of Takimag, about her newfound quest to help worthy writers both via her Takimag gig and with her fledgling indie publishing house, Hopeless Books.


THE MYTH OF WHITE CHRISTIAN POWER

Jesus for Jews.

by Bay Area Guy

It’s hardly a secret that in the eyes of most liberals and leftists, white Christians are the embodiment of evil. From the usual tired rhetoric about “privilege” to ominous warnings about the extreme danger posed by the religious right, one could be forgiven for thinking that we’re on the verge of being lorded over by Pat Robertson. Analysts of the Israel-Palestine conflict and the “special relationship” between the United States and Israel often highlight the role of Christian Zionists in strengthening the alliance between the two nations. Regardless of the specific issue at hand, we’re frequently being told that the Christian Right enjoys too much influence and that they’re perpetually up to no good. However, when analyzing the evidence, there is very little to substantiate the assertion that white Christian power is running amok in the United States.

HOW TO NOT GET SHOT BY THE POLICE


[TRIGGER WARNING: Whitesplaining]

With the amount of police shootings liberals are complaining about these days you’d think that a black man can’t walk outside without getting brutally massacred by cop. In fact, that’s what some liberals are actually saying. But even if you’re black, it’s actually really easy not to get shot by the police. Furthermore, there are steps YOU, as a black man, can take to not only avoid getting shot by the police, but to avoid negative police interaction PERIOD!

At this point, you’re probably asking “But Bob, HOW do I not get shot by the police?” Let me start with my credentials. I have a quarter century’s experience in not getting shot by the police. For years, I’ve been able to not only avoid getting shot by police, but I’ve been able to generally avoid negative police interaction period. Now, you may be on the verge of a pavlovian response, ready to scream “WHITE PRIVILEGE” as your liberal slaveowners have told you to scream–before you do, let me tell you that yes, I did utilize White Privilege, and you can too. I’ll get to that.

THE AFRICANIZATION OF FRANCE... AS OF 2014

This article is an expanded and updated version of an article published in November 2012 at Alternative Right. This new version has also been published in English at the Council of European Canadians and in French at Les 4 Vérités.


by Falko Baumgartner

Geographically one finds France in Europe, but demographically the country is swiftly drifting towards Africa as recent data indicates. France, unlike America, does not hold censuses on ethnicity, but follows instead its ideal of the color-blind republic. This, obviously, does not change one bit the ethnic reality on the ground, but it certainly helps to keep its citizens in the dark about it. Little in the way of official figures exists on the size of the immigrant population and the native French — until now. Pertinent material has come from quite an unexpected source, medicine, and it has all the hallmarks of allowing us an adequately precise and unbiased look into the strong growth of the non-White population in France.

SPACE – THE FINAL CAPITULATION

Space: consolation for the loser.

by Eugene Westerly

I frequently see articles from race realists and others expressing faith in some kind of futuristic, pro-technology solution to the problems of the present. Such solutions are usually dependent on assumptions of uninterrupted technical innovation, driven by large and successful industries and markets, over a lengthy period of time. These are the unquestioned assumptions of these futuristic solutions, but extract fossil fuels from the equation and even the beginning of such a scenario is infeasible.

Roman Bernard's recent film review, Interstellar: Finding A New Telos is a fine piece of writing, but provides an excellent example of the sort of blind assumptions that undergird all techno-futurist thinking. Even scientists make these assumptions. They may in fact be among the worst offenders. So Bernard is in good company.

This article will focus on the likelihood that ours is not a technological future, that our destiny – at least in a time scale meaningful to humans – is not in the stars, but that we are essentially stranded on Earth, and it is this, our home and only "destination," for which we must fight without hope of redemption by a form of interstellar White flight.

ALT-RIGHT PODCAST 20: THE ASIAN CENTURY?


Colin is joined by the legendary Matt Forney and Daniel Spaulding, a contributor to Alternative Right to discuss – and dispense 'fortune cookie' wisdom on  "The Asian Question." Will the 21st century be the Asian (or Chinese) century? Other topics include Confucian values, Asian intelligence and conformity, and demographic trends.



THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG

The beginning of the end.

by Keith Preston

When the future history of the former United States of America is written, the pivotal turning point that likely marked the downfall of the USA will be the events of September 11, 2001.

The United States emerged from World War Two as the most powerful nation-state in the world, rivaled only by the second-rate Soviet Union. American hegemony and dominance spread throughout the world as the countries of Western Europe became protectorates of the USA, and the colonies of the former European colonial empires in Asia, Africa, and Latin America became U.S. client states.

A NOVEL IDEA ABOUT NOVELS OF IDEAS



If personal anecdote is poor evidence of a more universal truth, then fictional anecdote is even worse, and the foundation of a great novel deserves better.
So I propose that there is a place for direct, sustained, quantitive analysis/argument in literary fiction. 
The main characters and their immediate story need not, and absolutely should not, be touched by this. But the establishment of setting is also important, and this ought to be done, well, with direct, sustained, quantitive analysis/argument.

THE SUBVERSION-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX



Playing in good faith by the rules of the world controllers earns certain undesirable peoples precisely zero credit. As a case in point, recent elections held in the war-ravaged east of Ukraine have unsurprisingly been summarily dismissed by Washington and Brussels. Any political expression running contrary to the aims and ends of the globalist superclass is denounced as illegal and illegitimate, with selective application of international law the one observable norm.

HEART KILLER NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK

Andy Nowicki's 2012 novel Heart Killer, published by ER Books in electronic format, is now also available in paperback form, courtesy of Hopeless Books.

OF CHIMPS AND MEN

Ferguson riot control.


As demonstrated by the riots across America, Blacks can’t handle the truth, the truth being that some cop shot some thug in order to save his life. When the shooting happened there were riots, and now that the decision has been made to clear the police officer there are yet more riots. Looks like any excuse to torch a looted liquor store.

Sensitive Whites talk about the "tragedy" and send their reporters into danger to show empathy with the rioters; while some even suggest that Darren Wilson, regardless of his innocence, should have been offered up as a sacrifice for the greater good.

"THE CROWD IS UNTRUTH"

A crowd in Ferguson, Missouri


At the age of 41, in the middle of what would prove to be his last year on earth, Danish writer and theologian Soren Kierkegaard shook off all subterfuge, dispensed with his coterie of coy pseudonyms, rejected his heretofore treasured "indirect approach" to polemics, and became for a time a hyper-conspicuous figure in Danish society, passing out homemade literature on street corners and railing against church authorities in a succession of scathingly-worded newspaper columns.

Kierkegaard's antics made a generally negative impression upon the Copenhagen cognoscenti, who mostly regarded him as a nuttering nuisance, or at best an eccentric monomaniac publicly flogging an increasingly woebegone spiritual hobbyhorse in a most unseemly manner. Yet the Kierkegaardian critique of the state-funded Danish Lutheran church, if severe, was in fact quite astute, and his approach, while brazen, avoided overt self-indulgence.

ALT-RIGHT PODCAST 19: RAPE CULTURE


Andy and Colin are joined by Matt Forney, the bête noire of feminists, to discuss the rising tide of intolerance, rape culture, female sexuality, the victim hierarchy, and the increasing divisions among SJWs over issues like the rape allegations made against Bill Cosby. 



ROTHERHAM IN ANTARCTICA


The BBC have developed quite a nice line in ever-so-reasonable explanations for the unacceptable, ineffable, and unspeakable.

I guess this is something they developed during WWII and the Cold War, as part of their role as cheerleaders and/or wardens of the coming apocalypse that the West was forced to ready itself for, in order to stand up to the recurring threats of Eurasian totalitarianism.

INTERSTELLAR: PROMETHEUS UNBOUND



The good news is that Interstellar – the latest film by Hollywood wunderkind Christopher Nolan – is an intelligent science fiction film in the 70’s meta-cinema mold. It asks big, eugenic, and vaguely fascistic questions about humanity’s future, and posits big answers, too, in a way that is refreshingly daring and original for a mainstream film made in this day and age.

THE STEPFORD STUDENTS AND THE MIDWICH MEDIA



Now and then the back end of the Liberal-Leftist train – i.e. the Conservative baggage car – makes a mournful, screeching sound as its slightly off-centre wheels dig into the rails down which the Leftist locomotive is dragging it. Such a screech resonates through a recent article in The Spectator, that bastion of old-school British conservativism that doesn’t really know what to do about the premises of the Liberal Left – except to lube well before being shafted by them in the best public school fashion.

THE CHOOM GANG IN THE WHITE HOUSE

Jonathan Gruber triggered a political tempest when videos surfaced of him admitting, nay, bragging, that he and his comrades not only deceived voters, but manipulated them by using key terms to mislead and then delivered something else entirely.

Whether or not Gruber’s actions are evil, acceptable or merely predictable, he raised an interesting point for the American voters: would you elect yourself to the position of voter? After all, it seems like every year confidence in government falls and yet the voters keep consistently electing bad leaders.

As they say in the hills, fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. It turns out the Barack Hussein Obama presidency has brought unprecedented levels of corruption, failure and reduced national prestige, but voters seemingly excited about his half-African origins and strong liberal credentials voted him into office twice. Is it time for the voters to step down?

THANKS FOR NOTHING

(In a breathless, gushy, ingratiating voice): "You like this! You REALLY like this!" 

by Andy Nowicki

(originally published November 20, 2012)

I am not stoical by nature, by temperament, or by habit. To my everlasting exasperation, I find that I continue to crave the applause, admiration, and approval of my fellow man. Horrifically enough, I still have hope for the future. I still cross my fingers, hold my breath, and get butterflies in my stomach when I anticipate the possibility of obtaining some manner of temporal success or victory in life. When someone pays me a compliment, I find my inner Sally Field – "You like me; you really like me!!" – annoyingly asserting herself. (Yes, the part of me that gushes in such a manner is unquestionably a woman.)

I have long held hardy, unyielding stoicism in the highest regard, but Epictetus I ain't. I talk a good game, and perhaps even project a convincing image, but deep down – well, not really even that deep down – I still cannot resign myself to reality with manful resolve. I find myself more often raging against the inevitable than accepting it.

NAVIGATING "VANTARDISM": SCREW SCYLLA, KICK CHARYBDIS!


The recent debate over ‘vantardism’ has shone light on a problem that the true Right desperately needs to deal with before it can hope to harness its energies effectively. Reluctant as I am to whip up an already well-stirred pot, I think that the more suggestions are advanced for the resolution of the problem, the better.

For anyone who doesn’t already know, ‘vantardism’ – as defined by Greg Johnson – refers to stupid and self-defeating attempts at ‘vanguardism,’ i.e. organising a political vanguard. As far as the true Right is concerned, this vantardism nearly always amounts to a militant insistence on shackling Rightist ideals to the corpse of Hitler’s Third Reich, accompanied by the argument that everyone who does not do the same is merely indulging in a futile and cowardly dissimulation. The fact that the latter argument has any credibility at all can no doubt be traced back to the very real cowardice and futility of the mainstream conservative ‘false Right’ – which, as we are all aware, has fought the postwar cultural revolution in the West half-heartedly, two-mindedly and one-handedly, while employing most of its energies to viciously stab in the back any comrades who dare to overstep the bounds of progressivist “respectability.”

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO OUR OLD FRIEND?

No man is a prophet in his own land. On this, Sir Oswald Mosley's birthday, here is a short piece of fiction that attests to this fact.


Here in the bars, bazaars, and dens of iniquity that make up the ex-pat Far East, you run into your fair share of cads, chancers, and 'rum' fellows – the sort of chaps whose eccentricities and slight quirks go unnoticed amid the teeming masses of Asia. The broad-minded and perpetually distracted Oriental, it seems, has a nasty habit of lumping all White men in together and glossing over the subtle codes and hierarchies by which we define ourselves.

SOCIAL MEDIA: FREAKSHOW FOR THE ANTISOCIAL



The internet has revolutionized the media of the West, and – because "the medium is the message" – it has also radically skewed our culture in new and unexpected directions. Before its advent the media was much more centralized. As a result, it tended to favour a corporatist approach along with small ‘c’ conservative values.

But now things have changed. Social media has become the driving engine of the "new media" and a major determinant of the news and opinion agenda. Those sites and publications that have adjusted themselves to this new clickbait reality are burgeoning. The rest are withering.

But has anyone besides Facebook (!) stopped to think about this in a systemic way? The old, centralized media naturally favoured the message of its paymasters and tended to project their values, but how about the new decentralized media with its powerful social media component? How does that work?

THE SUPERHERO AS A REACTIONARY ARCHETYPE

Shut up, Superman would make an awesome king.

by General Beardcastle

A year ago Richard Cooper wrote a piece for Salon decrying superheroes as a bunch of fascists. What triggered him in this instance was The Dark Knight Rises, and the similarities he saw between Bane’s revolutionary movement and Occupy Wall Street.

“Where are the left-wing superheroes?” he asked, “Maybe one day we will see a superhero movie championing something other than fascist or hypercapitalist values: a superhero movie in which it isn’t physical superiority that saves the day.”

CROWDS, CONTAGION, AND CONFORMITY

Lunatic, poet, purveyor of "cruelty": Antonin Artaud
by Andy Nowicki

In my previous post, I attempted to draw attention to the inevitable discord between one's individual willingness to struggle for the sake of the truth – however raw and lacerating be the resultant strain on his psyche – and his simultaneous desire to wrap himself in the sort of deliciously comfy cocoon of collective "struggle" provided by mass movements, through which he is provided the opportunity to remove his autonomy and subordinate his will to that of whichever "Party" he has opted to join.

WHAT MAINSTREAM CONSERVATIVES FAIL TO UNDERSTAND

I avoid the sports pages because they are the officially approved method of administering the “opiate of the masses,” along with the rest of the media products that have no actual use in a healthy life. Occasionally however the sports pages produce something of interest because, much like the audience for GamerGate, the sports audience is aggressive and realistic. Too much intervention by cultural Marxism or PC and they head for the hills.

A SHOCK POLL FROM FRANCE

Marine Le Pen, a French existentialist.


“Only 14% of people surveyed by Ifop, a leading market research company, said that they would vote for Hollande if the presidential elections were held this week, compared to 29% for Le Pen. 26% of respondents said they would vote for former president Nicolas Sarkozy if he were to be selected as the candidate for the UMP (Union for a Popular Movement) party. Sarkozy announced his intention to challenge Hollande for the presidency in the 2017 election in September.” Newsweek

PETS OF CONVENIENCE

She was a PoET, bitch!

by William Solniger

Some time ago – as most readers will remember – the white people of progressive America hung their sinful heads in reverence as a low-tone, monotonous jangle (such as might be made by a large hollow object falling to the ground), accompanied by a hot, angry gust of wind (such as might be let out of an artificially-inflated receptacle), reverberated with the dull sepulchral echo of state-sanctified mediocrity across their troubled land. The hollow object was Maya Angelou and her so-called “poetry”; the hot bag of air was Ta-Nehisi Coates and his so-called “case for slavery reparations”; and given that these two had been puffed up to such giant proportions by the ethos of affirmative action, none in the establishment media dared to question that the cacophony emanating from them was anything other than an oracle of Social Justice.

THE LANDSLIDE VICTORY OF ROBERT RANSDELL?



Readers of this site will remember the "big internet war" that Alternative Right (and our allies Counter-Currents) had with the Daily Stormer over its criticism of RamZPaul and its support for the write-in candidate for the Kentucky Senate race, Robert "with Jews we lose" Ransdell. 

You may also remember my point: that ghettoizing White nationalism by associating it with everything "lampshady" – whether imagery or real – was a pointless, no-win strategy and one designed by its supporters, such as Andrew Anglin, to keep healthy White nationalism confined to a diseased and rat-infested ghetto, where it would continue to wither and die; unlike Europe where it is thriving.

THE TRUE GLOBAL MINORITY


Our liberal leaning mainstream media never hesitates to inform us that whites are slowly but surely becoming minorities within Western countries. Most of the time such trends are reported in a mildly enthusiastic manner, with naysayers depicted as paranoid and alarmist racists. I guess according to leftist logic, objecting to your group’s eventual extinction renders you a horrible extremist.

However, another refrain that I’ve heard from many online leftists on blogs and elsewhere is that whites are already a global minority. Therefore, recent demographic changes are only natural. When reading through Studs Terkel’s book Race, one black woman that he interviewed emphatically rejected the term “minority” in favor of “people of color,” arguing that non-whites like her are the global majority.

Putting aside the foolish notion of a united “people of color” coalition and the fact that all groups are global minorities (as once pointed out by Jared Taylor), I’ll accept the argument that whites are a global minority at face value. After all, one cannot technically dispute such a claim. However, in the spirit of my post on the left and collective responsibility, I’m going to play the fun game of taking leftist logic and applying it to other groups. In this case, the intended target of my game are leftists themselves.

GAY MARRIAGE IS GAY OPPRESSION



I want to take you back. Back to a time of peace and love. Beautiful girls danced around wearing nothing but crowns made of flowers. Men had given up war and sat around playing music. Everyone shared their pot in order to come to greater understanding. And most importantly love was free and casually handed out in the name of enjoying sex without the oppressive institute of marriage.

Yes marriage. That evil arrangement of the patriarchy which had long held women in the tyrannical clutches of their male overlords. Feminist, hippies, reformers; the whole spectrum of Leftism had come together and pushed aside that long-lived prison for the fairer sex in the name of Progress.
But the march of Progress is never ending. With women liberated, it is now time to liberate gays. To do so we must agitate for them to enter the evil, oppressive, patriarchal institution of marri…
