MACRON’S ASTROTURF PARTY HITS THE BUFFERS IN SENATE ELECTIONS


I’m not sure how long it took average American voters to see through the hollow promise of Barack Obama — hard to tell as there wasn’t much of an alternative — but in the case of France, the process seems to have taken less than five months with regard to Emmanuel Macron.

In fact, the new President of France may as well call it a day after extremely disappointing results in the French Senatorial Elections.

THE GENIUS OF MERKEL IS THE USEFUL IDIOT OF GERMAN NATIONALISM



The central question of German politics since 1945 was always: “How will nationalism make its comeback to the German political mainstream?” Like a good suspense novel the German political system kept us guessing for a long time and even threw in a few political red herrings.
  • Would the Cold War see a form of German nationalism revived as a counterpoint to the militarism of the Soviet Union? Some of the scenes from the 1965 movie Battle of the Bulge clearly hinted at this.
  • Would Helmut Kohl’s 1990 reunification of east and west lead to a less cucked Fatherland that wasn’t scared of its own historical shadow?
  • Would the NPD be able to brush off its rough edges and overcome infiltrators from the security services to edge out of its East German ghettos?
  • And what about Pegida?
There was plenty to keep us guessing. All these narratives caught our attention for a while, only to reveal themselves as entertaining distractions. But, finally, with the results of Sunday’s election we were given our answer – the true German post-war miracle, the return of a nationalist party, with some caveats, to mainstream German politics was down to the machinations of Germany’s most brilliant and scheming politician of the last 20 years, Angela Merkel.

KNEELGATE! TRUMP GOADS GOODELL INTO CUTTING THE NFL’S THROAT


Reporting from YouTube, Andy Nowicki marvels at President Trump’s masterful 4-D chess in forcing the NFL to double-down on behavior that is deeply alienating to those Middle American “Deplorables” who are despised by an ever-more arrogant corporate ruling class.

THE COSMOPOLITAN CLASS


Thanks to the corporate purge of Alt-Right outlets after Charlottesville, my old articles on ‘Cosmopolitans’ and ‘Cosmopolitanism’ have vanished into the dankest dungeons of the Goolag. At the same time, the word Cosmopolitan has gained public notoriety after having been used by Stephen Miller to slap down the Fake News, sending them into a tizzy over the supposed “anti-Semitic roots” of this word (although I am not suggesting that Miller acquired the word from me or anyone else on the Alt-Right). The longer article on the theory of the Cosmopolitan elite probably deserves to be reposted in full, but I would like to first recap its basic ideas in a briefer and more accessible way.

DAMAGE TO CATALONIA?



It seems that the Spanish government is now willing to take a few pages out of the General Franco playbook to quash the separatist movement that has been gaining ground in Catalonia.

With a referendum on independence scheduled for October 1st, the Spanish government has launched a crackdown that may in fact only inflame the situation. State police have raided regional government offices, arrested Catalan officials organising the referendum, and seized ballot papers, ballot boxes, voting lists, and electoral material and literature. Now the finance ministry is also turning the screws to cut off funding for the vote.

TRUMP'S UN SPEECH REVEALS US SUBSERVIENCE TO ISRAEL AND SAUDI ARABIA

Trump's big UN speech was many things to many men, but there was no mistaking the key note: America's foreign policy is not its own.


The way to deal with a Donald Trump speech these days is to direct a sandblaster at it for a couple of minutes to blow off all the platitudes, bullshit, button pushing, and sub-Churchilian rhetoric, and then stand back from the dust to see what is left.

Sometimes nothing is left.

IMAGINED SOCIETIES: THE CULTURIST REVIEW



Occasionally, I google the words ‘culturism’ and ‘culturist,’ to make sure I’m still on the first page of search results. Recently, Willem Schinkel’s book, ‘Imagined Societies: A Critique of Immigrant Immigration in Western Europe,’ appeared in my search. Why?

It has an entire chapter on the ‘Rise of Culturism’! But, oddly, Schinkel’s book never references me, my book entitled ‘Culturism,’ or my decade of articles on the topic.

JIM CARREY, ICONOCLAST

People are buzzing about Jim Carrey’s bizarre “red carpet” interview at some recent Hollywood “Fashion Week” shindig. In this two-minute conversation, the famously wacky comic actor seems not to be doing his standard shtick. There is, instead, a definite angry purposefulness behind his abundant jibes and jests.

VOX DAY, ANDREW ANGLIN, AND THE MISUNDERSTANDING OF NAZIISM

by Colin Liddell

The recent debate between Vox Day and Andrew Anglin (now deleted by those anti-free-speech bigots YouTube) was an odd sort of mismatch. I don’t mean that in the sense that one of the parties was far superior to the other. In fact there was a rough equality — while Vox was clearly smarter and better educated, Anglin had more cunning. No, the mismatch I am referring to was that between two creatures that inhabit different realms and can’t really get to grips with each other in any meaningful way. On social media, I likened it to a battle between a gadfly and a tadpole.

VIDEO: THE PHASING OUT OF FEMINISM


While toxic feminism seems to be the predominant ideology of the day in the West, there are signs that it is being deliberately choked off as the migrant crisis accelerates in Europe and elsewhere… Andy shares his observations on this striking trend afoot, pondering its ramifications.

SHORTPOD (10): THE ALT-RIGHT METAPOLITICAL REVOLUTION WILL EAT ITS CHILDREN

Colin Liddell talks about the aftermath of “Hurricane Charlottesville” and why it was not such a defeat for the Alt-Right as the media spin would suggest. The Alt-Right is a metapolitical revolution that is following the normal trajectory of revolutions — i.e. being temporarily hijacked by more extreme and unstable elements, before more conservative, moral, and pragmatic elements reassert themselves.



WHY LONDON’S ZOMBIE CRIME CARNIVAL KEEPS ON GOING

Every year in London they hold the Notting Hill Carnival. It is intended to be a “celebration” of West Indian/ Caribbean culture, and every year people comment on how much gang violence, mugging, theft, and other crime it generates. It also leads to a lot of degeneracy but that is usually passed over without much comment as no one wants to sound like a prude.

CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS AND THE FALSIFICATION OF HISTORY



The Los Angeles City Council’s recent, crazed decision to replace Christopher Columbus Day with one celebrating “indigenous peoples” can be traced to the falsification of history and denigration of European man which began in earnest in the 1960s throughout the educational establishment (from grade school through the universities), book publishing, and the print and electronic media.

It is amazing that, as of yet, the federal holiday commemorating the Genoese explorer’s world-changing voyage has not come under attack. It is doubtful that in the current radicalized leftist ideological atmosphere, the national government’s recognition of Columbus will survive much longer.

FREE SPEECH IS VIOLENCE, AND ITS MIGHT MAKES RIGHT

by Ryan Andrews

I have long taken heart that John Rawls and Immanuel Kant are both held in such high regard. (Rawls is widely considered to be the most influential political philosopher of the post-war age, and Kant to be the greatest philosopher of modern times.) Not that I am particularly sympathetic to the ideas of either one, especially Rawls’s, but I appreciate that they both argued in good faith.

WHAT FREUD GOT RIGHT

The following passage is excerpted from Andy Nowicki’s collection of essays, Ruminations of a Low-Status Male, Volume 1, now available on Kindle and in paperback.

For me, an essential part of growing up was realizing and accepting that I wasn’t, and could never be, my father.


WOW, THE LEFT DOES PUNCH LEFT AFTER ALL



Parts of the Alt-Right — or parts claiming to be Alt-Right — assert that there is one eternal truth in politics, namely that the Left never punch Left. They never “countersignal” their own more extreme elements, with the corollary idea that we, being opposed to everything they stand for, should do exactly the same.

This, we are assured, will enable us to make the same rapid metapolitical progress as the Left and march through all the institutions like little Gramscian moles. So nobody dare say anything bad about Andrew Anglin, OK?
