In April, CNN asked me for an interview with one of its hosts, Fareed Zakaria, as part of an hour-long program on “white nationalism.” I was reluctant. Programs of this kind don’t try to understand why people become “white nationalists.” They just dismiss them as “racists,” “haters,” and “white supremacists.” I explained this to executive...

The reality we are not supposed to notice
The Great Replacement is the reduction of whites to a minority in what were once their neighborhoods, cities, states, or countries. It’s happening around the world, but many journalists think we shouldn’t talk about it. Here are editorials from the Washington Post(“The racist theory that underlies terrorism in New Zealand and the Trump presidency“) and... Read More
But hopes we can all get along anyway.
Black 17-year-old Jazmine Barnes was shot dead on December 30, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Her murder became a huge story because witnesses said the killer was a white man. In just one week, the New York Times ran a dozen stories on Jazmine Barnes. On January 7, Jazmine lost all importance and dropped out of... Read More
...so long as you are a “white dude.”
Captain Marvel is the typical Hollywood fantasy, with a woman playing the “captain,” plenty of heroic non-whites, and lots of bad white people. It will be released this Friday, March 8, which happens to be International Women’s Day. It’s all too trite for words. But Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney may just be pushing their... Read More
The internet giant’s new wave of censorship
White Identity by Jared Taylor has just been delisted by Amazon. Like most cases of this kind, the digital book burning was in response to a hit piece. An article from Quartz called “There’s a disturbing amount of neo-Nazi and white supremacist material on Amazon” frothed about White Identity and other titles. The piece was... Read More
It was set up so perfectly. To kick start the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon, 2018’s First Man—the epic story of Armstrong’s journey to become the first man to walk on the moon—would be nominated for Best Picture. Ryan Gosling would be nominated for Best Actor for portraying the heroic... Read More
The nation’s hall monitors have dug up some of his “racist” quotes.
In 1980, Orange County, California boasted a population that was 78 percent white. It was the birthplace of the American conservative movement, boasting 38 chapters of the anti-communist John Birch Society. John Wayne—star of perhaps the finest movie ever made, The Searchers—was a member of this organization and lived in neighboring Newport Beach. In 1979,... Read More
It’s OK to be white. On Sunday, more than 110 million Americans will huddle around their television sets and watch the 53rd Super Bowl, a matchup between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots. After two seasons marred by black NFL players taking a Colin Kaepernick-style knee or raising a ‘Black Power’ fist during... Read More
Elites cheer on attacks on children
A day off from school in January should be a happy occasion. Students pray for snow days. But Covington Catholic in Kentucky was closed on Tuesday, January 22, for a different reason: threats of violence. Young white men from Covington Catholic High School were in Washington, D.C., a few days earlier for the March for... Read More
Rainbow Nation shows its colors
South Africa is an ongoing topic of concern among the dissident right, which views it as a cautionary tale about the dangers of becoming a minority in your own country. The Rainbow Nation has been largely ignored by the mainstream media since the end of apartheid, but last year Donald Trump scandalized the global establishment... Read More
An insider’s story
In May of 2012, the BBC Panorama program broadcast a documentary about “racism” in the host countries of the 2012 European soccer championship: Poland and Ukraine. Those two countries were about to stage the second biggest event in the sport after the World Cup, and legions of journalists had arrived to cover it. The purpose... Read More
Landing on the moon is arguably America’s greatest accomplishment. It’s therefore symbolic of our times that the American flag has been expunged from the upcoming biopic of Neil Armstrong, First Man. Star Ryan Gosling, a Canadian, said the moon landing “transcended countries and borders” and defended the erasure of Old Glory because “I think this... Read More
The ongoing neutering of the South
On August 20, “Silent Sam” was pulled down on the campus of the University of North Carolina by a mob of students. Erected in 1913, it was a memorial to the UNC men who fought for the Confederacy. Earlier this year, there was another betrayal of Southern heritage: the introduction of the Tony the Landshark... Read More
Putting minorities’ feelings first kills creativity.
Few television programs have had the cultural impact of The Simpsons. Reporters now use the show as an inspiration for headlines. “’Free Market’” Conservatives Welcome Their New Protectionist Overlord, wrote Reason, citing a classic segment. In 2012 and 2016, reporters cited Homer Simpson’s proud declaration of “don’t blame me, I voted for Kodos!”—a joke suggesting... Read More
And ignores today’s murder victims.
A memorial is a statement about what society holds to be important and wants to remember. As Confederate memorials come down in the South, a memorial to lynching has been built in Montgomery, Alabama. It claims to honors victims from the past, but its purpose seems to be to shame whites in the present. Philip... Read More
A fictional answer to whites’ real-world success
James Baldwin, perhaps the most influential black literary figure of the last century, confessed in Notes of a Native Son that blacks feel alienated and inferior no matter where they travel in the modern world. Each black person, he mourned, is but a “stranger in their village,” a global village shaped by others—especially by whites.... Read More
Whiteness is a birth defect
For the mainstream media, it was a bona fide crisis. Blake Shelton, a European-American country singer and a host of The Voice, whom I had never heard of until yesterday morning,was named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man In The World.” The result was outrage. Marlow Stern at the Daily Beast declared grandly that “people” are in... Read More
An interesting niche in the political Left has appeared over the last 18 months. They are a segment of the Bernie Sanders wing of the Left, socialists who oppose racial identity politics generally and the shaming of poor whites in particular. I call them the anti-anti-white Left. They are vehemently opposed to the Clinton family... Read More
The evidence is clear — but often ignored
Recent films about ancient Greece such as Troy, Helen of Troy, and 300, have used actors who are of Anglo-Saxon or Celtic ancestry (e.g. Brad Pitt, Gerard Butler). Recent films about ancient Rome, such as Gladiator and HBO’s series Rome, have done the same (e.g. Russell Crowe). Were the directors right, from an historical point... Read More
