Our very own Editor Peter Brimelow has been engaged in an on-going twitter brawl with the Israeli philosopher Yoram Hazony, recently celebrated for his 2018 book The Virtue of Nationalism. It began when Peter was invited by Hazony to July’s ‘National Conservatism’ conference, only subsequently to receive a form letter refusing his acceptance because Peter’s... Read More

It is the worst of times and the worst of times—at home and abroad. Unremitting waves of “migrants” a.k.a. illegal aliens continue to pummel America’s southern border, with no end in sight [Record number of undocumented immigrants flooded the southern border in May, by Julia Ainsley, NBC, June 5, 2019]. No truly sovereign nation would... Read More
Attack From Far Left, Betrayed by Center/ Respectable Right
The current chaos in Austria shows that partnership between “center-right” and national conservative parties in Europe has limits. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’s government, a coalition between Kurz’s Austrian People’s Party and the National Conservative Freedom Party, collapsed after nationalists rebelled against Europe’s “youngest leader”. [Austrian chancellor Kurz outsted after nationalists turn on him, by Boris Groendahl,... Read More
Social Justice Warriors are obsessed with words. They instinctively understand that words aren’t just a means to communicate: they are thinking-tools—a way of expressing your individual and group identity. Political Correctness, in policing language, attempts to police people. It reduces their individuality, forces them to outwardly conform to the Multicultural Cult through speech, breaks their...

Two years ago, the Forum for Democracy was a new fringe party in the Netherlands. Today, it is poised to become the largest party in the Dutch Senate after a decisive victory in recent elections.

I recently learned from Peter Brimelow the right way to wear a scarf. For the previous seven decades I had just draped the scarf round my neck with one end hanging longer than the other and then either (a) tossed the long end over my shoulder, or (b) tied a simple over-and-under at the throat....

The fuss about Brexit over in the U.K. is of only indirect interest to us Americans, but it does show another aspect of the slow political revolution taking place all over the Western world. As our own correspondent Robert Henderson posted here at VDARE.com on Thursday, the Brexit vote of June 2016—the vote by British... Read More

The parallels between British and American politics are simply eerie. In 2016, after British voters unexpectedly rebelled against their political class and chose to leave the European Union, Donald J. Trump took to calling himself Mr. Brexit—and guess what? Since then, of course, the political classes in both countries have been conspiring to reverse the... Read More
As mentioned in Radio Derb, the Mrs. and I took a break in Cancún, Mexico the first week of December.

Steve Sailer captured post-1965 U.S. grand strategy very neatly with his phrase "invade the world, invite the world."It's the inviting that we mainly concentrate on here at VDARE.com, but the invading is worth citizens' attention, too. As Steve's phrase suggests, the two things are not unconnected. We have done an awful lot of invading this... Read More
Three months before President Trump was elected, a meme appeared on social media calling for Queen Elizabeth to overrule the Declaration of Independence and “Make America Great Britain Again,” as this was surely preferable to allowing The Donald to become the US head of state. [Americans shun Trump and campaign to install Britain’s QUEEN as... Read More
See, earlier: Brazil’s Bolsonaro—Among Other Things, A Pentecostalist Triumph? We constantly hear the Dem/ Main Stream Media Complex gloating that the US will be a majority non-white country by the 2040s. This prediction makes white Democrats hopeful as they naively envision a rainbow future of equality, love and electoral hegemony. It makes white Republicans despondent,... Read More
If the polls are correct, on Sunday October 27 the Pentecostal movement will effectively take power in the world’s fifth most populous country—the “Donald Trump of the Tropics,” former paratrooper and current senator Jair Bolsonaro, seems poised to win Brazil’s presidency. [Brazilian elections 2018: New poll claims far-right Bolsonaro may win over HALF of votes,... Read More

I recently predicted the emergence of Polar Alliance as Ice People recognize their common interest in stopping the Sun People Tsunami. Further evidence of that common interest: Italy Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte just visited the U.S.A. and had a meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office. The two leaders got along famously, both... Read More
There was an interesting piece in The Spectator, July 5th: Imperialism is back — and this time it's politically correct. The author, James Delingpole, argues that the aid industry, in spite of enormous investments of money and manpower, hasn't actually done much for Africans — though it has, of course, made lots of people in...

The inspiration for this article is a piece on the politico.eu website, which I assume is the European version of our own center-left Politico.com: The subhead to the article is: "Fortress Europe hardens its heart." The body of the article is a breathless argument from the bleeding-heart Left that Europe's leaders are abandoning their Open-Borders... Read More

The Great and the Good are furious about Donald Trump’s conduct at the G7 Summit, as journalists can’t believe an American president had the temerity to stand up for his nation’s interests at an international conference [One ‘rant,’ rough talks sour G7 mood in confrontations with Trump, Reuters, June 9, 2018].

outh Africa’s white farmers have their collective heads on the block following the vote by the country’s parliament to expropriate their land without compensation. The plan’s main proponent, Julius Malema of the Economic Freedom Fighters party, says white farmers are “criminals” who must be driven off the land. Make no mistake, this is shorthand for...

On the campaign trail coming up to the 2012 election, Republican hopeful Herman Cain confessed to not knowing who was the president of, quote, “Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan.” I had a soft spot for Cain, although in retrospect it was probably just solidarity with a fellow 1945 baby and math geek, and desperation at the awfulness of the...

As reported here by James Fulford on Monday, Austria’s general election last weekend was won by the center-right People’s Party with 32 percent of the vote.

There is a striking long essay on Japan in the current (Fall 2017) issue of American Affairs by Asia scholar Michael Auslin.

Murray: “At no stage did the police or local government, the national police or government, consider that the EDL had a point.”
This is the first book of Douglas Murray’s I have read. Checking on Amazon.com before I started it, I saw that Murray’s previous works include Neoconservatism: Why We Need It (2006) and Bosie (2000). The latter is a biography of Oscar Wilde’s boyfriend Lord Alfred Douglas; Murray is openly homosexual. While of course I wish... Read More

The big issue in Europe is the ongoing invasion from Africa and the Middle East.

The President speaks in Krasiński Square, Warsaw, Poland
Our President went to Poland and made a stirring speech. Remember the old radical chant, “Hey hey, ho ho, Western Civ. has got to go!”? Our President took the opposite line, counter-attacking: “Ho ho, hey hey, Western Civ. is here to stay!” I sure hope he’s right. The speech of course was grandiloquent. A speech... Read More

There’s something to report almost daily now in the war between Muslims and infidels being played out on the streets of Western cities.

Headliner of the week was the Muslim terrorist attack on a pop concert in Manchester, England. The bomber blew himself up and took 22 others with him. That’s the count as I go to tape here; over a hundred were injured, some critically, so the death count may be higher as you hear this. The... Read More
Trumpism: righting the world’s wrongs. Like a lot of other people who supported Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, I was left disappointed and depressed by the April 7th attack on Syria.

The Japanese Were Right. The British Were Wrong.
This week our subject is “Life in Derbistan” or London as it used to be. I’m going to indulge myself in some nostalgia. It’s geezerish, I know. But reading about the terrorist attack on London’s Westminster Bridge this Wednesday got me thinking about London, and I began to nostalge. (Is that a verb, “nostalge”? “I... Read More
President Trump on Tuesday gave a one-hour speech to a joint session of Congress.

The Fake News story of the week also offered insights into just how insulated from reality our Goodwhites are.

It is the best of times, it is the worst of times for nationalism in Europe.
