“Unite The Right” Protesters Become Civil Rights Heroes As Leftists Mount Discrimination Campaign

in Culture/Politics by

In their desperation, leftists are doubling down on their immense hypocrisy. Having proclaimed the virtues of civil rights for generations, the left is now turning their backs on their principles and openly discriminating against white people who they suspect to be “racist.” In the town of Charlottesville, VA–a leftist stronghold–a group of pro-white protesters ranging from identitarians to southern nationalists to anarchocapitalists is organizing under the banner “Unite the Right.” They are set to demonstrate tomorrow, but many impediments stand in their way. Unwilling to let the protesters peacefully rally in favor of the Robert E. Lee statue in Emancipation…

“Fifty Shades Of Adolf” By Jakobi Kid

in Culture by

A bit of a confession to make, first of all. I, of course, love what I do in the reactosphere, and want to contribute in some way to the rebirth of strong and masculine men throughout the world as well as the rebirth of something resembling normalcy in my lifetime, but a not-inconsiderable part of me got into the blogging game for the purpose of having people give me free stuff. Indeed, I feel that many people try to become celebrities for that exact purpose. Whether they be celebrities in the traditional sense, or the new breed of Internet-born celebrities,…

The Anti-Federalists Were Right

in History/Politics by

On the eve of the federal convention, and following its adjournment in September of 1787, the Anti-Federalists made the case that the Constitution makers in Philadelphia had exceeded the mandate they were given to amend the Articles of Confederation, and nothing more. The Federal Constitution augured ill for freedom, argued the Anti-Federalists. These unsung heroes had warned early Americans of the “ropes and chains of consolidation,” in Patrick Henry’s magnificent words, inherent in the new dispensation. At the very least, and after 230 years of just such “consolidation,” it’s safe to say that the original Constitution is a dead letter.…

3 Takeaways From The Google Memo Controversy

in Tech by

This week on social media, many people are discussing a memo by James Damore that criticized Google’s diversity policy for its use of discrimination to achieve diversity. The memo also included a cohesive argument, with plenty of sources stating that men and women are simply different. As a result, Google and the left were infuriated, resulting in James Damore’s termination. Many on the left were quick to label this memo as “anti-diversity” and “anti-women” when Damore made it very clear in the memo that he did not mean to allude to either of those things. Google was also quick to show everyone…

Leftist Attacks

in Politics by

A dispute recently erupted at a conference sponsored by the Mises Institute between right- and left-leaning libertarians, that is, between Jeff Deist, President of the Mises Institute, and Daniel Horowitz, who is something of a fixture at CATO. Since Tom Woods has provided a spirited defense of Deist’s position, which calls for a combination of liberty with traditional social morality and traditional community identities, I needn’t rush to Jeff’s defense. Although I’ve never (to my knowledge) met the Director of the Mises Institute, I fully share his perspective on the necessary preconditions for living in a free society under a…

Defending Jeff Deist From The Politically Correct Libertarians

in Politics by

Certain quarters of the libertarian universe are in an absolute tizzy because Mises Institute President Jeff Deist invoked “blood and soil” in a recent speech. In the minds of some PC brain-addled libertarians, this is clearly an indication that the speaker was dog whistling to Nazis. This is both profoundly clueless and shameless PC grandstanding. Proof that “blood and soil” can only be some sort of cryptic reference to Nazism is supposedly supplied by a Google search of the term which brings back a lot of links to “wrongthink” websites. I respect many libertarians. I have many libertarian friends, both…

Christopher Hitchens: Premature Anti-Castroite

in Politics/World by

Nearing the end of his life, Christopher Hitchens no longer considered himself a Trotskyite, or even a socialist. But he never repudiated his Vietnam-era politics, and to his dying day praised the “heroic” Vietcong, despite Ho Chi Minh’s obvious Stalinist-style politics and how said politics were murderously applied after Saigon fell (Hitchens, like others in the New Left, blamed Minh and Pol Pot’s savagery on America’s relentless bombing campaign). But Hitchens departed from the New Left from the very beginning by criticizing one of their sacred cows: Fidel Castro. Like Lee Harvey Oswald (who, as a gun-brandishing Marxist-spouting deadbeat, would…

Spain At The Brink

in History/World by

Time has not been kind to the Spanish Civil War, which, among the Left at least, ranks up there with World War II as “the good war.” Russian declassified documents show that Stalin was trying to import his horrific Purge Trials into Loyalist Spain by attempting to execute en masse his Spanish opposition in the form of non-Stalinist but authentically anti-fascist frontline military units on trumped-up charges of being “fascist spies.” On his orders, his plaything, the Stalinist-dominated Loyalist government used their secret police to hunt down and execute these “fascists.” Unfortunately for those who defended the necessity of these…

An X-Rated Conversation About LGBTQ & XX In The Military

in Politics by

Predictably, the Joint Chiefs of Staff have already pooh-poohed President Trump’s July 26th LGBTQ directives, banning the politicized transgender production from the theater of war.Why “predictably” (preachy, too)? Whether Republicans like it or not, the military is government; it works like government; is financed like government, and is marred by the same inherent malignancies of government. Like all government-run divisions and departments, the US military is manacled by multiculturalism, feminism and all manner of outré sexual politics, affirmative action, and political correctness that can kill. And has killed.

Trump Is Correct, New Hampshire Is A Drug Infested Den

in Politics by

In a phone call to Mexico’s in-over-his-head head-of-state, Enrique Pena Nieto, President Trump said he won in New Hampshire because it is a “drug infested den.” Not long after, NH Governor Chris Sununu weighed in with a carefully measured response, one tailor made to suit the political dissociative identity disorder of a state that votes overwhelmingly for Republican legislators but sends a fully Democratic delegation to the US Congress. And sometimes New Hampshire will elect a Democrat governor and other times it will elect a Republican; from time to time, it’s a Sununu. No one can ever really be sure…

Onward Transgender Soldiers!

in Culture by

As you’ve probably noticed, over the last week or so, there has been a furious debate in American politics and culture over President Trump’s decision to ban transgender soldiers from serving in the United States military. The left, which at one vague point in the past professed to be anti-war, was of course in favor of transgenders serving. “How dare President Trump deny these people the right to fight overseas?!” they asked, still having a residual love of war that they had engendered during the Obama administration. Besides, having transgender soldiers would make soldiering hip, and that’s all that really…

Mainstream Media Hacks Abandon Objectivity On The Immigration Question

in Politics by

CNN’s Jim Acosta went on a rampage during yesterday’s press briefing toward Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller while he was discussing the RAISE Act, an immigration reform bill. “This is the largest proposed reform to our immigration policy in half a century,” Miller began. “The most important question when it comes to the U.S. immigration system is who gets a green card.  A green card is the golden ticket of U.S. immigration.” Immigration reform has been, since the campaign began, one of the areas of main concern for the President Donald Trump and his administration. For some odd reason, it…

As “Liberty Summer” Campaigns Implode, Young Americans For Liberty Leaders Continue To Push Them On Activists

in Politics by

The fallout from the “Liberty Summer” campaigns continues on. Young Americans for Liberty leaders have been selling their activists on these campaigns all summer (and continue to do so), but they have not turned out as expected. The “Clean Mi Govt” part-time legislature initiative headed by Brian Calley continues to receive terrible press in Michigan while Luther Strange, a Mitch McConnell crony who is receiving help from YAL activists as well for his Senate campaign, has a bevy of scandals to deal with as he tries to keep his seat against more conservative opponents. For “Clean Mi Govt,” the entire…

Letter From England 2: Europe And The Culture War

in Culture/Economics/Politics/World by

If I were to draw up a list of the problems facing my country, and then to discuss their nature and possible solutions, I might be starting work on a rather long book. Instead, I will confine myself to what I think are the two most immediately pressing, and that are within the direct control of the British Government. These are our withdrawal from the European Union and the state of our so far uncontested culture war. I begin with Europe. When we voted, in June 2016, to leave the European Union, we were plainly willing an end without willing…

What Is Our Moral Obligation To Others?

in Philosophy by

At the root of all left-wing ideas is the belief that everybody has a duty to care for their fellow man. One can see this belief in action upon listening to leftists speak. For example, all of their arguments regarding health care revolve around this basic idea. If you watched the Ben Shapiro vs. Cenk Uygur debate, then probably heard Cenk Uygur make the argument that in a “civilized society” we will care for each other. Basically, leftists believe that an individual has a big moral responsibility to his fellow man, but upon closer inspection, one can see that this…

Too Much Winning: Scaramucci’s Flame Out Shows The Limits Of Trumpism

in Politics by

To those who enjoyed the Scaramucci show and are sad that it has come to an end, please consider the old adage: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Anthony Scaramucci came into the Trump administration like a knight in shining armor. Besieged with constant infiltration, leaks and seemingly unprecedented turmoil throughout his first six months, President Trump needed a man to come in like gang busters and take care of business. Replacing Sean Spicer, Scaramucci came in as White House communications director guns a-blazin’ with a style so brash and confrontational that it may have…

George Orwell: More Astute Than Edmund Wilson

in Culture/History by

Biographers of literary critic Edmund Wilson have asserted that the writer who bears the closest resemblance to Wilson, who reigned as America’s premier man of letters from the 1920s—1960s, is George Orwell. Writing of his subject, Lewis Dabney sought to validate this trans-Atlantic connection by stating that, like Wilson, Orwell was “a social critic who’d digested Marxism, a satirist and autobiographer until 1984 better known as a man of letters than for his fiction.” Dabney noted that both men, rarely praiseworthy of their contemporaries (although Orwell inexplicably lauded Henry Miller), were so toward each other. Orwell lauded Wilson’s essay on…

John McCain: A Good Man & Good Public Servant?

in Politics by

As soon as John McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer, a bipartisan chorus of praise for the career politician emerged. Whether McCain is the good man and good “public servant” that he is now being made out to be are empirical questions. The evidence with respect to both is overwhelmingly in the negative. Since a disastrous public servant is and must be a person with bad character, i.e. not a good person, we needn’t even look at McCain’s private life in order to see that he is neither a good man nor a good public servant. Let’s take his foreign…

Helen Gahagan Douglas: The Hillary Clinton Of The 1940s

in History/Politics by

As Hillary Clinton continues her “excuse” tour regarding her decisive loss to Trump, ranging from the now well-worn Russian collusion thesis to weak support from Obama during the campaign to an ineffective and shattered DNC, many Democrats have sought to acquaint her with the painful reality that she was simply a bad candidate. Such frankness, however, has not attached itself to a cherished liberal history lesson regarding an eerily similar 1950 California Senate race between Republican Congressman Richard Nixon and Democratic Congresswoman Helen Gahagan Douglas. For liberals then and now, Nixon’s victory was achieved by his métier of red-baiting and…

Reason Magazine Feminazi Threatens Libertarian Youth Activist Over Harmless Joke

in Culture/Politics by

Libertarians have typically been known as standing for freedom of expression, but that is going to change if Elizabeth Nolan Brown has her way. The sex-positive Reason contributor, who co-founded Feminists For Liberty with the vehemently anti-libertarian Cathy Reisenwitz, is bringing social justice warrior-style thought policing into the libertarian movement. And for what reason? Because her little feelings were hurt over a silly joke. This whining Feminazi, with stereotypically dyed hair and all, started a pathetic Twitter crusade on Saturday because a Young Americans for Liberty activist made a harmless joke on Twitter about women making sandwiches. Her goal was to…

Why Everyone Reacted Inappropriately To Trump’s Transgender Military Ban

in Politics by

On July 26, 2017, President Donald Trump announced a ban on transgender individuals from joining the military. Trump’s announcement was met by praise from the Right and hate from the Left. In response, leftists continued to use their same-old Hitler comparisons and acted like this was the worst thing to happen in American history. But on the other side of the aisle, the religious right applauded this announcement and proclaimed that this was just another tactic in making America great again. Overall, I believe that the response from both sides of the political spectrum revealed that the Left continues to…

Robert Merriman Was Brave, But Apologized For Soviet Tyranny

in History by

It is said, cold-bloodedly, that JFK died in the most romantic and, based on what was to come for the remainder of the 1960s, fortunate way possible. For his death bathed his image in golden lights that did not cling to him while he lived, and allowed him to miss the consequences of many of his actions, particularly with regard to his hawkish stance on Vietnam. Had Oswald missed or Kennedy dodged the fatal head shot, it could have been JFK who was the subject of the New Left chant directed toward his successor–“Hey, Hey, LBJ, How Many Kids Did…

The Many Reasons Why Conservative Missourians Will Reject “Open Borders” Austin Petersen

in Politics by

Since announcing his candidacy for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, former Libertarian Party presidential candidate Austin Petersen has piqued the interest of Missouri conservatives seeking a candidate to unseat left-wing incumbent Claire McCaskill. A candidate with national prominence like Petersen would initially appear to be an ideal nominee in one of the most closely watched races of 2018. However, the more Republicans will learn about Petersen the less they will like him. Here are five reasons (of many) why Austin Petersen is not fit to represent Missourians: Immigration: Petersen supports allowing countless illegal immigrants to come across the United…

Like Trump, Nixon Also Wanted Allies To Supply Their Own Protection

in Politics/World by

Once upon a time, a Republican president formulated a doctrine that had little to do with regime change, and demanded that countries previously protected by the US military look to their own defense. Quickly into his first term, then-President Richard Nixon in 1969 announced “the Nixon Doctrine” which asserted that the nation’s Cold War allies in Asia would have to provide for their own protection. This policy, which reversed the thrust of US foreign policy for the last 20 years, was linked to the president’s campaign promise for “peace with honor” regarding US forces in Vietnam. By 1968, even some…

Jeff Sessions’s Drug-War Fanaticism Shows a Growing Gap Between DC And The States

in Politics by

In recent years, numerous states have been passing new reforms of the long-abused civil asset forfeiture in which police agencies seize private property without any due process. At least 11 states, plus the District of Columbia, have passed new reforms. Some reforms, such as those in New Mexico and Nebraska, prohibit asset forfeiture altogether in the absence of a criminal conviction. Other states have opted for a more incremental approach, and have settled for new mandates in which law enforcement agencies must publicly report what has been seized — with the intent of identifying abuse for possible additional future reforms.…

The Rise Of Trump From An “Elite” Perspective

in Culture/History/Politics by

As we are well into the first year of the Trump administration, and leftists are still walking around in a dim haze of incredulity, I’d like to reflect a little on why the man was elected. As some of you have probably inferred from the title, I am (on paper) a “coastal elitist.” I was born and raised in New Jersey, I am college educated (holding both two undergraduate degrees and a graduate degree), and being that I read, exercise, and listen to classical music, I suppose my tastes run to the fairly “highbrow.” In practice, some of my other…

Male Taxpayers Are Literally Rape Survivors

in Culture/History/Politics by

As always, we should begin by defining our terms: What is rape, and why is it bad? There is nothing inherently traumatic about a foreign object being inserted in the vagina. Women insert tampons in there several times a month. Moreover, a large majority of rapes are not forceful, so the concept of rape is not related to physical pain or mere penetration. Rapes can even occur without the victim being aware of it. Yet, rape is punished as severely as aggravated assault, such as breaking someone’s legs. Why is that? We punish rape for psychological reasons. Women who experience…

How To Make Conservatism More Attractive To Minorities

in Culture/Politics by

As a Latino in the conservative movement, I can honestly say that conservatives have not hit the right notes with minorities. This is mostly because leftists and Democrats have a way of conflating right-wing ideas with immoral acts such as murder and racism, thus scaring minorities into leaning liberal. Even though it should be easy for conservatives to refute such notions, it tends to come off as pretentious and even bigoted to everyone else. In order to actually get minorities to switch to conservatism, we must choose our words carefully on certain issues, and take advantage of their genuine concerns…

Graham Greene: Catholic Communist

in History/Politics/Religion by

One of the more transparently manipulative and hypocritical slogans used by Western Communist Parties in the mid 1930s to recruit allies for Stalin was specifically designed for Catholics: “You can still take Communion and love the Soviet Union.” Graham Greene, novelist, pundit, and above all, Catholic, embodied this slogan. Indeed, Greene’s attempts to link Catholicism with a Soviet Union that persecuted priests from the get-go predated this slogan. Since the 1920s, Greene had sought to merge his Catholic faith with his Communist one, which prompted George Orwell, a foe of both organized religion and communism, to label Green the first…

Fake News Sure Didn’t Start With Trump

in Politics by

Contrary to the narrative of Donald Trump’s friends and foes alike, the phenomenon of “fake news” long precedes the 2016 presidential election, even if the moniker is of a fairly recent vintage. To deem an item reported by journalists a piece of “fake news” is not necessarily to say that it is patently false. Of course, fake news does not preclude outright lying on the part of “fake journalists”—those who are motivated not by a desire to inform the public as much as they are driven by political, financial, and/or professional considerations. What makes a fake journalist fake is their…

Claud Cockburn: Pioneer Of The Mainstream Media

Conservatives today locate the origins of the “mainstream media” in the Watergate and Vietnam era; when every reporter since has wanted to have the presidency-toppling effect of a Woodward and Bernstein. But from Watergate on, the presidencies that reporters have wanted toppled have been exclusively Republican ones. Much of this partisanship had to do with the inclusion of New Leftist ideologues, ironically once anti-establishment toward the press, burrowing into the profession and the academia that trains future journalists. Conservatives are certainly correct that the profession today is dominated by leftists who never left the late sixties, where objectivity was an…

Cucked By The ADL: Gavin McInnes Institutes Thought Control On His “Proud Boys”

It’s always like conservatives and libertarians to take a good thing and ruin it unnecessarily. After the Anti-Defamation League–the leftist thought control agency–profiled controversial Rebel Media and Compound Media host Gavin McInnes as a racist and potential terror threat for founding the Proud Boys, he responded with a near-immediate purge of alt-right members from his pro-West fraternal organization. “For the record, #ProudBoys [Virginia] are not alt-right. Stop splitting the group w that sh-t. If you are a [Virginia] PB who is [alt-right], you’re not a [Virginia] PB,” McInnes wrote in a Tweet with ominous ramifications for his group as a whole,…

Truman Would Have Agreed With Trump On The CIA In Syria

It has become an operational and, at times, a policy-making arm of the Government. … [T]his quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue.” This dire warning about the propensity of the Central Intelligence Agency to go rogue did not come from Trump, but rather Harry S.
