SHORTPOD (31): THE MEANINGLESS SAINTS AND MEDIEVAL METAPOLITICS

Affirmative Right chief editor Colin Liddell wishes listeners a happy "St. Andrews Day" and explains why the Scots picked a Jew, who never came to Scotland or even knew Scotland existed, to be their patron saint.

Also, discussed  and compared is Saint George, the Greek who somehow became the patron saint of England.

FAKE FEELZ FIGHT ON THE BORDER


For a country to survive, it needs not just well-policed borders but also a positive identity and a strong nationalist faith. Instead, most opposition to illegal immigration in American today is merely based on peripheral factors, such as whether illegals are likely to be gang members or not, place a burden on public services, etc. The migrant caravan is a cynical plot to target this ideological weakness by bombarding Americans with imagery designed to appeal to their "feelz." But, as RamZPaul shows in this video, many of the images are contrived and faked for maximum effect. 

"DEMON IN THE ROUGH"

The passage below is taken from Andy Nowicki's new publication, Ravages of the 'Rough Beast,' now available on Kindle, and in paperback.

I write with the consciousness of a man who strongly suspects he has acquired a demon.

While not feeling himself to be overtly possessed by said demon, your faithful interlocutor nevertheless struggles to comprehend his current psychic state in absence of rhetorical recourse to citation of the doings of the denizens of the infernal realm.

I am not possessed, I don’t think. Nothing unknown has invaded my body or breached the borders of my consciousness. Still, my mind is demon-haunted, and my heart is devil-bedeviled. An infernal element has entered my interior line of vision, and I can’t seem to avoid glimpsing him; he is always in front of me, though often merely in my peripherals. At times I can forget that he is even there, but then, with a wash of dread, I remember him again.

And once I recall him, there he is before me again.

ALT-RIGHT LIES: THE JEWS "DECLARED WAR" ON GERMANY

Tabloid headlines are the highest form of historical evidence, apparently.
by Colin Liddell

Due to the obsessive grip that antisemitism exerts on weak and immature minds, most of the lies that exist in the Alt-Right seem to focus on matters relating to the Jews.

This is pretty odd, especially if you consider the fact that nothing reinforces disappearing Jewish identity better than the kind of ineffectual antisemitism that the present-day Alt-Right specialises in.

TRUMP THE TWITTER TIGER AND THE INVERSION OF RELEVANCE

by Duns Scotus

It is clear by now that salvation will only come from the eclipse of America and its collapse.

This was long suspected within the Alt-Right when it was still an living movement, which had not been subverted and sidetracked by WASP twinkies and Nazi-presenting. self-loathing Jews.

SHORTPOD (30): "ME AND MY LIBERAL GF" VS. STUFF THAT REALLY MATTERS

Affirmative Right Chief Editor Colin Liddell discusses Richard Spencer's increasingly ludicrous attempts to remain the centre of attention by parading—or being paraded by—his liberal girlfriend.

Meanwhile the world heads for greater instability, with migrant invasion armies assembling at the US border with little in the way of moral and ideological resistance, and Britain battling to extricate itself from a deceitful and malevolent European Union

POMPEO AND BOLTON: TRUMP'S TAG TEAM OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION!

by Antonius Aquinas

With the welcome departure of war mongering UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, the Trump Administration’s neocon tag team of death and destruction – Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor (NSA), John Bolton – have enthusiastically taken up where the repellent Haley has left off. It is highly doubtful that the former Ambassador will meekly stay under the rock beneath which she crawled. It seems possible that she will reappear as a primary challenger to her former boss in 2020, and, most certainly, as a Presidential contender in 2024.

REVIEW: DEFAMATION FACTORY

Defamation Factory
by Kaiter Enless
Reconquista Press,
150 Pages

Reviewed by Rémi Tremblay

Since the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting of October 27th, the Anti Defamation League of the B’nai Brith (ADL) has been welcomed in all the major media outlets as a respectable representative of not only the Jewish community, but also of “a world without hate,” a phrase cleverly trademarked by the powerful organization. Somebody with no prior knowledge of the ADL or its director Jonathan Greenblatt could easily believe that they represent and teach tolerance. This has little to do with reality as Kaiter Enless's book Defamation Factory makes clear.

ANOMIE BOULEVARD

by Brett Stevens

Driving around today, it became clear that most people were heavily distracted. They stopped in the middle of the road, randomly, and paused there for a long time. If you honked, they looked at you, bewildering: weren’t you experiencing the same confusion they were? Or fundamentally: is the world not just an extension of myself?

UKIP GUN IS LOCKED AND LOADED AND POINTING AT THE HEAD OF TORY REMAINERS

by Trad News

Thanks to the turbulence being caused by the Brexit negotiations, UK politics are particularly unstable at the moment.

This could easily lead to the collapse of Prime Minister Theresa May's shambolic government, and we might even see a general election being announced within weeks or even days. After that, who knows what will happen.

THE STARK TRUTH: MUFF 19 AND OTHER STUFF

CINEMATIC SINS: DEAD POETS SOCIETY AND "ASSUMING THE POSITION"

Ethan Hawke as prettyboy prep school crybaby
The following is an excerpt from Andy Nowicki's upcoming publication, tentatively titled Demon in the Rough
________________

Film is like music in its ability to transfix and captivate its audience. Both the visual and the aural are mediums through which a hypnotic effect can take hold, causing the participant in the medium to “lose himself” temporarily and engage entirely with that which what spills into his ears and assails his eyes.

JEWISH CHEERLEADERS OF DECLINE

A cheerleader for Tel Aviv's
professional basketball team.

The “JQ,” or “Jewish question,” is a contentious issue in Alt-right-land. I have made my own thoughts known on this matter elsewhere (see here and here), but to summarize: I acknowledge the existence of highly disproportionate Jewish influence in the media, government, and various levels of the entertainment industry, as well as many other notable societal institutions. I chafe against the notion that it’s crass bigotry to observe that Jews do indeed often tend to be rich and powerful people, or to note that Jewish interest groups are quite frequently heavy-handed, obnoxious, and dishonest in their tactics and rhetoric.

LUKE FORD: STEVE SAILER vs. RICHARD SPENCER


It's obvious that failed Alt-Right leader Richard Spencer's parents didn't pay much attention to him as a child. Ever since, he's been on a one-man mission to compensate for that by attracting as much attention to himself as possible, either through his amateur dramatics or edgytarian "hot takes" on the issues of the day. Spencer generates a lot of heat but very little light. Steven Sailer, by contrast, is the exact opposite, a self-effacing, data-driven intellect, who makes real change, without attracting pointless drama. YouTuber Luke Ford compares the two.

GAVRILO PRINCIP, AUTOMATIC SCHMUCK

This piece was originally posted on the 100th anniverary of Princip's assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdiand, an event which is widely agreed to have touched off World War I. It is reposted today, on the 100 year anniversary of Armistice Day, which signaled the end of that horrific, tragic, and seemingly pointless conflict.

"Baby, you're a firework"... Gavrilo Princip, archduke slayer.

"I’m on a mission, cuz now I’ve had it
I watch their system, then spit right at it!
I was born and plated, a schmuck they created
I’ll explode, I’ll erode! Yeah, I’ll break your fuckin’ code
Cuz I’m an automatic schmuck… with a tendency to rock!"
The Hives
An assassin commits murder, but not just any murder. He kills not for the thrill—though killing may indeed be thrilling for him—but because it is something he must do, either because it is his paid profession, or simply because he views such a task as his grisly responsibility.

THE STARK TRUTH: RETURN OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY ANIMAL

Robert Stark and Matthew Pegas talk to David Cole about his recent Ann Coulter event, and the past, present, and future of the Republican Party. David Cole writes for Takimag and is the author of Republican Party Animal.

In 1998, due to death threats and other pressures, holocaust revisionist David Cole faked his own death and began a new life as David Stein, a Hollywood insider and Republican Party activist. In 2014, however, his true identity was revealed, leading to Cole being shunned by his Republican friends and losing work. Now, thanks to the election of Trump, the mood has changed so much in the GOP that Cole has been "rehabilitated" by important figures on the mainstream right like Ann Coulter.

MR YOKO ONO

NOTE: I wrote this take-down of John Lennon and the battle over his dubious legacy for Tokyo Journal in 2000, on the twentieth anniversary of his death, after a visit to the John Lennon Museum in Japan. It is one of the 22 pieces included in my first book Interviews and Obituaries, available on Amazon.

20 years after he was gunned down outside a New York apartment block, John Lennon is still with us. Here in Japan, he's with us even more, following the recent opening of a museum dedicated to him in Saitama.

THE MIDTERM MYTH OF CIVIC NATIONALISM


Echoing the powerful points made in the Trad News articles "Black Voters Punish Trump for Finding Them Jobs" and "Jewish Voters Punish Trump for Moving the Embassy to Jerusalem," Boomer-slash-Gen-X Nationalist RamZPaul points out the mistaken beliefs of those in the Trump camp who thought that Blacks and Jews would reward Trump and the GOP by changing their tribal voting patterns. He also blackpills on the demographic changes that are now sweeping the nation, which will make it increasingly difficult to elect conservative, White-friendly governments in the future.

TWO-YEAR SHITSTORM ON ITS WAY AS ELECTION SPLITS THE COUNTRY DOWN THE MIDDLE

by Trad News

The Midterms are in and the results are essentially big wins for Trump and big wins for the left-wing of the Democratic Party. Squeezed out are the lukewarm centrists and some cuckservatives.

Even CNN admits that Trump did very well:

THE PERFECT CONDITIONS FOR AN ETHNOPOLITICAL SEA-CHANGE?


The Anglo-Irish poet W.B. Yeats said it best:
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
This is more or less where America is now, after the inconclusive midterm elections, where both Trumpians and the far-Left did well, while centrists and cuckservatives were squeezed.

The problem that arises when you're the greatest nation in the history of the world, is that there's no real problems to deal with. There's no war. Anybody who wants a job can get one. Nobody starves to death. Everybody has access to medical care. Even beggars can make six figures a year.

SHORTPOD (29): THE END OF AUSTERITY (UNTIL AFTER THE NEXT ELECTION)

UK government debt £1,889,540,434,996 +
Affirmative Right Chief Editor Colin Liddell discusses the US midterms, before turning his attention to UK Chancellor Philip Hammond's latest Budget. Hyped as the "End of Austerity" Budget, Liddell argues that the package of tax cuts and increased government spending is economically moronic but politically astute, and is influenced by the tragic fate of John Major's government in the 1990s which unwittingly fattened the calf for its Labour opponents.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM BOLSONARO?

by Trad News

Brazilliant! As widely expected, the hard-right, populist candidate Jair Bolsonaro has won the 2nd and final round of the Brazilian Presidential Election, taking 55% of the vote against the 45% for Fernando Haddad from the left-wing Workers Party. Notice the conspicuous lack of centrist candidates in the final round? This was a hard-right guy against a hard-left guy and luckily the right guy won.
