William S. Lind and Donald Trump

It is no secret by now that president-elect Donald Trump has surrounded himself with a cast of reprehensible characters, and is still being supported by people who are demonstrably worse. Continue reading “Meet William S. Lind, the Extremist Author Who Might Have Influenced Donald Trump”

White Nationalists Laud the Anti-Refugee Message of…’The Angry Birds Movie’

When I heard there was going to be an animated Angry Birds movie — based on the app of the same name in which you hurl birds at their pig enemies by way of a large sling shot — I knew I would have no desire to see it. I saw it as just another in a long line of movies to cash in on video games, many of which have little or no plot. (Case in point, there’s a Tetris movie in the works.) What makes the Angry Birds movie interesting is that, despite its 43% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, it seems to have acquired the unlikely fandom of the white nationalist community due to what they see as its strong anti-immigrant theme. Continue reading “White Nationalists Laud the Anti-Refugee Message of…’The Angry Birds Movie’”

Pat Buchanan

In a May 26, 2016 column for VDARE, Pat Buchanan — paleoconservative author, former Special Assistant to Richard Nixon, and Nazi sympathizer — declared Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to be “the Great White Hope” of “our anti-white age.” Continue reading “Pat Buchanan Calls Donald Trump ‘the Great White Hope’”

Peter Brimelow: Respond to Brussels Bombing by Ending Immigration

Peter Brimelow

Following the horrific terrorist attacks in Belgium, prominent Islamophobes like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz responded by renewing calls for torture and surveillance of American Muslim communities. Other far-right figures, such as Peter Brimelow, used the carnage to reignite the immigration debate. Brimelow, the white nationalist editor of VDARE, wrote a column demanding an end to immigration — of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Continue reading “Peter Brimelow: Respond to Brussels Bombing by Ending Immigration”

FLASHBACK: Samuel Francis: Commercial Showing Interracial Romance is an ‘Act of Moral Subversion’

Today I’m posting not about something ridiculous from the present day. No, I’m changing it up to highlight an incredibly stupid Alt-Right moment from years back. (Yes, I’m hoping to make this a regular thing.) Today, in our first “Throwback Thursday,” we’ll take a look back to 2004 — a year full of regressive politics (they were the days when George W. Bush was in charge) — when a racy advertisement made racists lose their collective minds.

White Supremacist Website Lets Readers ‘Celebrate America’ with Confederate Flag Decals

Failboat

VDARE.com — a white supremacist website founded by Peter Brimelow, and which features poisonous screeds by Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan — is currently begging for donations. As VDARE staff wrote, readers can donate $50, $75, or $125 in order to take a stand “against Cultural Marxism” and “celebrate America.” In return, donors receive a so-called “Patriot Pack” which consists of Confederate battle flag decals and a copy of the late Samuel P. Huntington’s final book, 2004’s Who Are We?: The Challenges to America’s National Identity: Continue reading “White Supremacist Website Lets Readers ‘Celebrate America’ with Confederate Flag Decals”

Chuck Baldwin recently penned a column for the anti-immigrant website VDARE with the eyebrow-raising title “The Confederate Flag Needs To Be Raised, Not Lowered.” Given that title one might be tempted to think the former pastor and Constitution Party candidate is about to go on a lengthy diatribe praising slavery or denouncing racial integration. Not quite, though he does do something almost as reprehensible: Whitewashing the link between slavery and Southern secession, a position as indefensible as denying the existence of the Third Reich’s “Final Solution.” Continue reading “Chuck Baldwin Whitewashes the History of the Confederate Flag in VDARE Column”
