“The Wolf of Wall Street” — the Movie

As we recently saw with my review of Jordan Belfort’s bestseller The Wolf of Wall Street, there are many pronounced Jewish themes in the memoir. Frankly, I’d never noticed the book, but this year I did get the DVD of the film based on the book, and that alerted me. Begin with this howler: As the […]

“The Wolf of Wall Street” — the Book

How many times have you heard about financial crimes and frauds perpetrated by people who happen to be Jewish? How many times have you heard about the association of Jews and Wall Street? For most TOO readers, these themes should be amply familiar. Now let’s consider yet another instance of the above. Just before the […]

Eye on Hollywood: Reel Bad Anti-Semites

Originally posted on August 20, 2008. In my last column, I wrote that the Hollywood depiction of the Holocaust “was the result of a complex narrative full of sudden stops, starts and dead ends.” For instance, immediately after the war, Hollywood was far more interested in something closer to home for American Jews than the […]

Eye on Hollywood: Reel Bad WASPs

Originally posted on August 7, 2008 Today the leisure suit of the mid-to-late 1970s is rightly ridiculed. Many things were askew in those years of economic “malaise” and high interest rates. Most importantly for whites, the 1960s cultural revolution had settled into a prolonged assault on the cultural image of whites. Needless to say, Hollywood […]

Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and Jewish Ethnic Networking

American Whites of European extraction — particularly White males — are being systematically displaced in the very country they built. This surely will not be news to TOO readers. As editor Kevin MacDonald has already pointed out, the appointment of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court is testimony to this trend: Kagan’s arrival on the […]

Merry Christmas Movies . . . NOT! Part 2 — Anti-Christmas Movies

Earlier this week, in Part One of this column about the War on Christmas, I wrote that “the Jewish dominance of Hollywood is so obvious and undeniable that Los Angeles Times’ columnist Joel Stein recently made it official. What else can you say when all eight major film studios are run by Jews.” I’ve written […]

Merry Christmas . . . NOT! Part 1

Editor’s Note: In honor of the Christmas season, we are posting past articles from TOO because they seem just as relevant today. This is the first of a two-part article by Edmund Connelly originally posted on December 21, 2008. is again running their wonderful War on Christmas series, begun in 1999. Various contributors there […]

Denzel Washington in “Safe House” and “Flight”

The gala premiere of Denzel Washington’s latest film, Flight, was held last week at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. Washington plays the leading role of airline pilot “Whip Whitaker,” who saves his plane from certain disaster. According to the trailer, however, he might be in trouble because of his drinking problem. We regular Americans will […]

Mr. Derbyshire, Get Right with the Lord

It’s hard to believe it’s been four and a half years since I wrote a column about British polymath John Derbyshire. That was well before Lehman Brothers collapsed, before the world economy teetered on the brink, before the U.S. government gave untold bailout money to the largest banks and corporations. In my column, I was […]

“Flight”: Denzel Washington’s New Movie, Part II

  Now comes a truly sardonic confirmation that I am right. A good part of my teaching involves showing the changing images of a high-level American vocation that has not changed much racially over the last century: that of the pilot. Few careers have for so long captivated the imaginations of American boys and men. […]

“Flight”: Denzel Washington’s New Movie, Part I

I find myself in a conflicted position. While I enjoy being right as much as the next guy, it hurts to be right about something with negative consequences. Imagine, for example, that you are convinced you have a serious malady, yet your stubborn doctor pooh-pooh’s your concerns. As a result, you conduct a grueling online […]

How They Lie to Us: the film Margin Call

  Paul Craig Roberts made an intriguing reference the other day. He wrote that “a noted philosopher wrote an article in which he suggested that Americans live in an artificial or virtual reality. Another noted philosopher said that he thought there was a 25% chance that the philosopher was right. I am convinced that he […]

The Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman Affair: Previewed by Hollywood

Well, I’m waiting. I’m waiting for something to wake up White people all over the world, especially in America. I’ve thought before there was enough out there to do the job, but people’s survival instincts have yet to kick in. And now we have the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman affair. I really thought this anti-White media […]

Kevin Costner’s Mr. Brooks: Smart, White and a Serial Killer

In the 2007 psychological thriller Mr. Brooks, Kevin Costner stars as the eponymous Mr. Brooks, a wealthy and accomplished White American male. The film begins with him receiving an award for Portland, Oregon, Man of the Year, whereupon he thanks his faithful and attractive blonde wife. Mr. Brooks looks good in his tuxedo and exudes […]

“Unstoppable”: Why I Write

Few readers have likely noticed, but my contributions to this site have fallen dramatically this year. The reason is simple: I’ve been convinced by the likes of Alex Kurtagic, Harold Covington et al. that merely tap-tap-tapping on computer keys accomplishes little. Worse, I know I’m guilty of what they both disparage: writing negatively about our […]

Honestly, What Will It Take?

This summer we had the Wisconsin State Fair with mobs of Black “youths” beating Whites. Then a far bigger Black uprising in London and other parts of England.  The Mainstream Media tried to spin it as non-racial but the imagery coming to us gave the lie to that. Honestly, this brings me back to the […]

Harold Covington’s Northwest Quartet

In 1989, prolific British writer Paul Johnson published Intellectuals offering case studies of a string of intellectuals, beginning with Jean-Jacques Rousseau and then Shelley, Marx, Ibsen, Tolstoy, Hemingway, Bertolt Brecht, Bertrand Russell, Sartre, right on down to more modern public thinkers. Johnson’s point is that however much these men (and Lillian Hellman) might have professed […]

Charlie, Say It Ain’t So

Alas, the news is that fabulously popular actor Charlie Sheen has been canned or at least suspended from his show Two and a Half Men. Though the show has been CBS and Warner Bros. Television’s top-rated sitcom for the season, Charlie crossed the line: He said something construed as anti-Semitic. It happened in a radio […]

Japan vs. America

It seems more and more Americans are taking a sour view of the way things are going for the country — and rightly so. “By all accounts,” our editor Kevin MacDonald writes, “particularist anger is welling up in White Americans — especially among the middle and working class — outraged at the changes they see.” […]

The Smell of Money

John Graham’s writing on Jews and financial misbehavior is priceless, beginning with the must-read article he co-wrote with Kevin MacDonald, Is the Madoff Scandal Paradigmatic?. This week Graham brings us Did Schumer Shill for Madoff?, which strongly suggests that New York Senator Charles Schumer was complicit in the massive financial swindle perpetrated by co-ethnic Bernie […]

The Evil Among Us: Liam Neeson in “Taken”

Israel is (in)famous for its “false flag” operations, covert provocations meant to create blame for innocent parties or nations. For instance, in the 1950s Israelis propagated the Lavon Affair, in which Jewish operatives in Egypt attempted to blow up American- and British-affiliated buildings and place the blame on Egyptians. In theory, this would have compelled the […]

Rick Sanchez on Jewish Media Power

How Jewish is Hollywood? That’s the question Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein asked two years ago just before Christmas. In answer, he wrote: When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter […]

Jews Mocking the Tribe?

The Jewish love of mockery is famous. Given the chance, they mercilessly mock many things, particularly their enemies, the goyim. Toward that end, they also mock that which is sacred to goyim, such as Christianity and Christian holidays. For example, one of Freud’s first students, Theodore Reik, found such aggressive themes and hostility toward non-Jews […]

What Would It Take?

I believe Whites are willfully denying the clear and present danger we face. Whether it is through late or broken marriages, lackluster efforts at having replacement-level families, or feeble efforts at keeping the governing elite from importing a new (non-White) people, demographically, White Americans are in free fall. About this, the numbers speak clearly; there […]

Life at Fifty

I am now in my third year of writing articles for this site, and they have added up: today’s is my 50th (review them here). Much of my writing here (and at The Occidental Quarterly print journal) has addressed the way Hollywood film has subtly and not so subtly attacked Whites, particularly White males. One phenomenon […]

James Howard Kunstler Worries about Jewish Behavior

I’ve written before that I get a kick out of the writing of blogger and author James Howard Kunstler. And I love to observe how he twists and turns worrying that the goyim his fellow Jews are mocking and fleecing will finally wake up and take a swat at their tormentors. A week ago, April […]

Take the Money and Run: Jewish White Collar Criminals Welcomed by the Jewish Community

We Westerners really do live in a Jewish world. Jewish control of the media is undeniable, as I’ve written about for years. One area that remains under-treated is the one most people still associate with Jews—and not always kindly: financial matters. Whether a Jewish group evolutionary strategy is responsible for their outsized success with money, […]

Selective Moral Panics in Higher Education

James Edwards and his crew from The Political Cesspool have done a great job of bringing to our attention the alarming disparity in how minor non-violent acts against Blacks in university-related settings are treated by the American press versus how murder of Whites by Blacks in the same setting is treated. For instance, he told the story […]

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves: The Beginnings of White Victimization in Multicultural America, Part 2

This Jewish-led media assault deserves more attention as a cause of Whites’ failure to stand up for themselves. An explanation I respect appeared in Race and the American Prospect, edited by the late Sam Francis. Titled “Race and Religion: A Catholic View,” the essay was written by New Yorker Richard Faussette. Though Faussette situates his […]

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves: The Beginnings of White Victimization in Multicultural America, Part I

Today’s column addresses the ongoing slaughter of Whites and yet again tries to fathom why so few Whites are moved to defend themselves, individually or as a group. My own perspective may not be especially useful here, for I came to The Jewish Question prior to becoming a race realist. What opened my eyes was […]

Jews and Money

Editor Kevin MacDonald has just written about Our Unethical Financial Elite. This is a worthy topic, especially to the extent it openly discusses Jewish involvement. Two things stand out here: First, the level of deceit and corruption is stunning. Second, the combination of Jews and financial malfeasance has a historical record thousands of years long. […]

Farewell, My Dear WASP

“Here’s a WASP joke. Question: Why do WASPs not engage in more orgies? Answer: Too many thank-you notes to write.” Thus began a NYTime’s book review last fall about the new book Cheerful Money: Me, My Family, and the Last Days of Wasp Splendor by Tad Friend. I read the review and highlighted a phenomenon […]

Goyland: Where the Wild Things Are

“Living so long in exile and so often in danger, we have cultivated a defensive and apologetic account, a censored story, of Jewish religion and culture.” Michael Walzer, quoted in Kevin MacDonald. Separation and Its Discontents, p. 217 The $100 million-dollar film Where the Wild Things Are was released last October. Older readers might remember […]

Daniel Jonah Goldhagen: Peddler of Hate

Now that we’ve reached December, it’s the time of year to observe (and suffer from) that familiar Jewish attitude toward Christmas: hate. VDARE is now running its excellent War Against Christmas exposé of assaults on Christmas by “multicultural” haters of a holiday hundreds of millions of Americans love and cherish. For my money, it’s the […]

Channeling Steve Sailer

When I first started writing my Steve Sailer column two weeks ago, I initially titled it “Channeling Steve Sailer.” Now I wish I had left it at that because his Sunday VDARE piece that appeared just after my essay really did seem like we were operating on the same wavelength. His essay was indeed perfectly […]

Steve Sailer, an Indispensable Pundit

Is America, Too, Breaking Up? Or, Nothing Succeeds Like Secession

To say that the last few generations have been a demographic disaster for many White populations around the world is an understatement. That Whites in America are now slated to fall to a mere half of the population by 2042 is but one of the more telling signs of this sad truth. Firebrand Pat Buchanan […]


In a truly chilling essay on the Israeli-American plan to decapitate potential leaders of Iraqi nationalism, retired sociologist James Petras describes both the plan and its effect. Entitled The US War against Iraq: The Destruction of a Civilization, the tract documents how “Top Zionist policymakers who promoted the war did not initially directly pursue the […]

The Culture of Deceit, Part II

Two weeks ago, I showed that deceiving non-Jews was normative behavior for the Jewish community historically. As I wrote, “illegal activities involving deception and deceit are tolerated within the Jewish community. . . . The only ethical principle involved here is the age old ‘Is it good for the Jews?’” I focused on financial crimes […]

The Culture of Deceit

For those conversant with the Bible, the twin themes of Jewish resource acquisition and deceit will be familiar. For example, in A People That Shall Dwell Alone: Judaism as a Group Evolutionary Strategy, Kevin MacDonald describes this: The biblical stories of sojourning by the patriarchs among foreigners are very prominently featured in Genesis. Typically there […]

Spies Like Us

Just after St. Patrick’s Day of this year, my review of Jeff Gates’ new book Guilt by Association: How Deception and Self-Deceit Took America to War appeared. The reference to deception and self-deceit in the subtitle are apt, for Gates explains that these techniques are responsible for America’s war in Iraq, among other things. “The […]

On the Visual Displacement of the White Race

I’ve been observing and studying the fall of Western man for about two decades now. For a number of years I could not really understand the process, but eventually I caught on. I’ve shared my fears and observations about our displacement with friends and family in a haphazard way but it was not until this […]

Hollywood Watch — Morgan Freeman: America’s “Spiritual Presence-in-Chief”

I’ve just finished researching and writing a long essay on a two decade-old phenomenon in which the film image of African American males has improved dramatically. It now rivals that of white males, who outnumber blacks by about seven to one. (We might also mention that it was white males who ruled and largely built […]

On’s Peter Brimelow and “Electing a New People”

John Derbyshire has rather pointedly described the fate of those who would criticize Jews in a remarkable exchange with Joey Kurtzman, a Jewish editor of the website So far as the consequences of ticking off Jews are concerned: … I was making particular reference to respectable rightwing journalism, most especially in the U.S. I […]

Jeff Gates’ Guilt by Association

Not many people think about Jews as much as I do. Decades of research have exposed me to a number of classic books on this topic, beginning with John Murray Cuddihy’s rollicking Ordeal of Civility. Next comes Paul Johnson’s A History of the Jews, or Albert Lindemann’s Esau’s Tears. Or course readers of this site […]

The Appointment of Charles Freeman and the Coming War with Iran

When I was a child, we had in our living room a copy of Time magazine that came out just after JFK had been assassinated. It was the only article in the drawer of an end table, thus creating a kind of family shrine for the fallen president. I sometimes wonder if the March 24, […]

Richard Perle’s Outrageous Lies

I’ve just finished listening to an enlightening 2-hour radio interview with hosts Mark Glenn and James Morris and guest Kevin MacDonald, and including an interesting call-in appearance from Stephen Sniegoski. The general topic was Jewish power, but one point in particular stood out: Recently, a premier architect and promoter of the neocon war against Iraq, […]

Harvard Hates Whites—Does America, Too?

“The United States is well on the road to being dominated by an Asian technocratic elite and a Jewish business, professional, and media elite.” — Kevin MacDonald English author Samuel Johnson famously quipped that “People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed.”  Today I’ll follow that advice, reminding people—especially whites […]

A Perfect Storm? Obama and the Zionist Power Configuration

Understandably, many Americans had hoped that the incoming Obama administration would institute the promised changes away from the Bush policies of war and economic turmoil that have become so wearily familiar. That such hopes were misplaced is already clear. Knowledgeable observers of course never held out any real expectation that America’s disastrous course over the […]

The Washington Post’s Willing Executioner?

Last week, an editorial on this site made reference to a Washington Post column in which a Jewish writer contended that “the Republicans now more than ever are the white folks’ party . . . the party of the American past. Republican conventions have long been bastions of de facto Caucasian exclusivity, but coming right […]

Eye on Hollywood: Letter of termination to the white race

If an insightful document is found to be a forgery, does that totally negate its value as an analytical tool or source of useful information? In the case of history’s most infamous forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the argument is that the document is worthless—or worse. No matter how accurate or useful […]

Eye on Hollywood: Reel Bad Whites

As I wrote back in early June, Arab-American professor Jack Shaheen has long been concerned about the consistently negative images Hollywood comes up with when portraying Arabs. Over the years he has written three books on the topic: The TV Arab; Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People; and Guilty: Hollywood’s Verdict on Arabs […]

“Jews instinctively fear and feel threatened by nationalistic, particularistic societies.” Part I

In a recent two-part column in this forum, Hereward Lindsay wrote that “Jews instinctively fear and feel threatened by nationalistic, particularistic societies.” Allow me to offer three examples of this. That all three come from vastly different places only points to the central truth Lindsay identifies. First, consider the United States Air Force, a group […]

“Jews instinctively fear and feel threatened by nationalistic, particularistic societies” Part II

Earlier this year, in a column entitled Naming Neocons, I mentioned that The American Conservative publisher Taki Theodoracopulos  had been replaced by Jewish businessman Ron Unz and wondered if that might change how the topic of Jews was discussed (or not discussed). After all, while Taki was publisher, featured writer Pat Buchanan had pointed to […]

Eye on Hollywood: The Race Films of Denzel Washington: Déjà Vu All Over Again

Last fall, in my capacity as a frequent contributor to this website’s print companion, The Occidental Quarterly, I addressed a crowd of citizens concerned with the well-being of Europeans and European Americans. My presentation had the long title of “Cultural Displacement and the Jewish Experience: The Entertainment Industry as a Case Study.” Perhaps fitting in […]

Eye on Hollywood: No Country for Old Men

While traveling in Greece last spring, I found myself lacking for reading material. At a bookstore in Patras, I found an overpriced copy of Cormac McCarthy’s No Country For Old Men. At the time, I thought it might have been a bootleg copy because pages of narrative seemed to be missing. For instance, one moment […]

Derbyshire on MacDonald

British immigrant commentator John Derbyshire is at it again, firing a tiny salvo in the direction of evolutionary psychologist Kevin MacDonald. Since discovering MacDonald’s corpus of writing on Jews, Derbyshire has had a like-dislike relationship with the author’s work. In a column on VDARE last week, Derbyshire said he was satisfied with the account of […]

Eye on Hollywood: The Interpreter

Nicole Kidman is a stunning woman.  Standing at just under six feet tall and sporting strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes, she cuts an impressive figure.  Needless to say, she is white.  In her 2005 film The Interpreter, however, her heart clearly lies back in black Africa, where she once had an African lover involved […]

Eye on Hollywood: The System is Not Broken

I’m afraid this column will not be overly original today. Rather, I will point to the same phenomenon so many others throughout the blogosphere have been discussing: the ongoing dispossession of white men in this world of ours. Visually, this is obvious at every turn, beginning with the coronation of America’s first black president. Just […]

James Petras: Another Powerful Voice on the Neocons

Any number of prominent commentators have pointed to the power of the Israel Lobby in the United States, and to one degree or another they have noted that Jews compose the bulk of the segment of the Lobby known as neoconservatives.  Opinions about this Lobby and Jewish neoconservatives range from pungent to calm and reasoned, […]

For Whom the Gaza Bell Tolls — Part 2

“Palestine is not the ultimate goal of the Jews; the world is. Palestine is just the place for the world state headquarters.”  Israel Shamir in Cabbala of Power “The United States is well on the road to being dominated by an Asian technocratic elite and a Jewish business, professional, and media elite.”       Kevin MacDonald “We […]

Naming Neocons

“It is anything but an anti-Semitic canard to label neoconservatism a largely Jewish phenomenon. Neoconservatism is ‘ineluctably Jewish.’” Jacob Heilbrunn, quoted in Evan R. Goldstein, “Fight Makes Right,” The Chronicle of Higher Education, January 18, 2008 Just last week, in my first TOO column, I wrote that we were never going to hear about the […]

For Whom the Gaza Bell Tolls

“The Israelis can kill whomever they want whenever they want.” –Paul Craig Roberts I sometimes think that it’s pointless for Americans to talk much about recent events in Gaza because we know how it will play out — America will do absolutely nothing to interfere with the ongoing massacre. British journalist Robert Fisk reminds us […]

Move Along, Folks. Just Another Conservative Here at the New York Times

Likely we’re all aware of issues on which all sides of the “debate” happen to be covered by members of a certain media-dominant group.  How often have we seen this with respect to Middle East issues, gun control, etc.? Bill Kristol has been appointed as a columnist for the New York Times. For those who […]
