Pleas for Support

The Occidental Observer Year-End Fundraiser

ChristmasFrame-199x300rTHANK YOU to those who have contributed during 2017. I’m not sure you really realize your support is critical to our success and our ability to fulfill our unique niche of providing fact-based, well-written articles on White identity, and White interests.

We also present honest discussions of the critical importance of Jewish influence in the decline of the West and on Jewish and Israeli influence on the disastrous US foreign policy in the Middle East. The topic of Jewish influence is more or less missing from many sites that emphasize White identity and interests.

Your gifts of any amount are welcome. The best (and easiest) way of giving is to subscribe for a recurring monthly amount that fits for you. The page with information on donations is here. (We now accept Bitcoin!)

It’s been a banner year in many ways. We have solidified a consistent group of writers that TOO readers have come to know and follow avidly — people like Dr. Edmund Connelly, Guillaume Durocher, Dr. Robert S. Griffin, Dr. Andrew Joyce, Tobias Langdon, and Dr. Tom Sunic. We understand that with the Ph.D.s and footnotes, we are not for everyone on the Alt Right. But we fill an important niche with our articles—different strokes for different folks.

Your support is important for many of our writers, and it’s safe to say that we are now competitive with other Alt Right websites in paying them. As always, the financial base for projects like TOO is dwarfed by the financial resources of our enemies. Nobody is getting rich here, or even making a living by writing for TOO, but your support is a huge psychological and financial boost for many.

We are living in very exciting times. Donald Trump’s presidency was greeted with a great deal of hope and fanfare on the Alt Right and I continue to believe that his heart is in the right place on the central issue of immigration — building a wall, deporting illegals, ending chain migration, lowering refugee admissions, banning travel from terror-prone countries, and lowering total numbers of legal immigrants remain high on his agenda, although it’s no surprise that these policies are intensely opposed by the left and by major components of the GOP.  Since immigration is really by far the most important issue for the Alt Right, we should cheer this.


And because immigration and the “Trump as White supremacist/Hitler/racist” meme are now in the forefront of public discussion, there are more and more manifestations of hatred toward Whites (as I often emphasize on my Twitter account [@TOOEdit]). Racial polarization continues to get more and more obvious. We see very public expressions of hatred toward Whites and their culture. The increasing media presence of the Alt Right is part of that. For us, racial polarization is good — a necessary condition for a breakthrough to power and influence.

Other components of his policies are far less desirable. The tax cut is a creature of the wealthy, corporate component of the GOP rather than anything approaching populism. The rich and upper middle class really don’t need tax cuts, while the middle class will get a very small tax cut that will make no difference in their lives.

Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is frightening because it indicates an attempt to mollify the NeverTrump neocons which would be likely to translate into better media coverage for a beleaguered president. The truly frightening prospect is that Trump may accede to the neocon hard line on Iran, including war. The prospect of a US war with Iran is not in American interests but has long been a goal of Israel, AIPAC, and neocons. It would be disastrous for the United States, Iran, and the entire Middle East with the exception of Israel.

I am not at all happy with the Trump Administration’s policies that reflect outdated libertarian/Conservatism Inc. attitudes on health care. The GOP will get hammered by its White working class base in the next election cycles if these trends are not changed. And their policies on the environment and national parks do not reflect the long history of racially conscious Europeans pioneering environmental preservation. Net neutrality could end up being a nightmare for the Alt Right as ISP’s are pressured into making it difficult or costly to access Alt Right websites.

Christmas-bell-36ccBut overall, we should be optimistic. Donald Trump’s presidency is a game changer and has a very real possibility of success. The Mueller investigation seems to be crumbling with every new indication of bias by Mueller’s team and by the FBI.

Again, the page with how to donate is here. This page has been updated to provide greater clarity. There are two sections, the top section for tax deductible donations and the bottom section for non-tax deductible donations respectively.

Let me know if any of the instructions are unclear. Another (painless) way to contribute is to shop at Amazon using this link. We get a small percentage of your purchase, and it doesn’t cost you anything.Donate to TOO

Thanks for thinking of TOO.
and Merry Christmas!

The Occidental Quarterly
6/16: Summer 2016–Vol. 16, No. 2

The Occidental Quarterly - Summer 2016
(Click image to enlarge it.)

The Occidental Quarterly fills a unique niche  in bringing together scholarly articles on a wide range of topics that are mired in political correctness elsewhere.

There are quite a few reasons for the precarious state of our civilization and our people. But one of the main ones is that we have lost the intellectual and moral high ground to a cultural elite that is hostile to our people and our culture.

A main purpose of TOQ is to change the attitudes of White people so that they will feel confident identifying as White and explicitly asserting their interests as Whites. Politically aware Whites must understand that the elites that dominate culture and the political process in the West are intellectually and morally bankrupt.

The domination of the mass media and the academic world by elites that are hostile to White identity and interests is a major barrier for educated Whites to act on behalf of their interests. White people cower in fear of being called a racist for believing and acting in ways that are absolutely normal and natural for all the other peoples of the world. While other peoples defend themselves, their culture and their borders, societies in Europe, North America, Australia, and New Zealand that have been controlled by Whites for hundreds of years are the only ones to accept their demise as a moral imperative. We view this outcome as the result of competition over the construction of culture in which the legitimate interests of Whites have been compromised.

All of the scientific data are on our side. Increased ethnic diversity is associated with a host of societal ills, including decreased support for social welfare programs and lack of public trust. Those who argue that Western societies have a unique moral obligation to cede cultural and political control to non-Whites completely ignore the legitimate interests of Whites. No one argues that countries like Korea or Uganda have a moral obligation to allow other peoples to swamp the native population.

Digital download subscriptions are only $30/year for four issues; subscriptions by mail are only $60/year. Go to www.theoccidentalobserver.net and click on ‘SUBSCRIBE TO TOQ’.

You will not only find the articles fascinating and informative, you will also be supporting the work of scholars who are part of a community defending our people and our culture with the highest level of integrity and intellectual sophistication.

The (very handsome) cover for the Spring 2016 issue can be accessed by clicking here. This issue will be mailed out around March 21.

Ending post emails, moving to Twitter and Facebook

Due to some technical issues that would make the service unsustainably expensive, we are discontinuing our email alerts for newly posted articles. I hope that people currently subscribed for posts by email will move to Twitter or Facebook for the alerts. All new articles are posted on Twitter and Facebook. We have always had buttons for both Twitter and Facebook in the right-most column for TOO (about halfway down the page), or click below:

Twitter: @TOOEdit
Facebook 

I should say that I am very involved with Twitter (>6200 followers) and send a lot of tweets besides alerts for articles, typically commenting on things of interest in the media. Twitter is a great way to keep in touch with pretty much everything of interest to the Alt Right.

The normal site FEED is in the uppermost far right black menu bar – subscribe there as well to get notified of new posts. Read more

Site Update and Funding Appeal

Back in March TOO was being deluged with huge numbers of bogus service requests, basically shutting down the site. With the help of our new web person, this has been brought under control, and the site is running fine. Although the site doesn’t look any different (yet), from a technical point of view it is virtually all new. We replaced ancient, non-functional programming and got rid of a low-level site trojan infection which had allowed spammers to log into the the site (but, thankfully, not post their articles). New security software was installed. Because of increased traffic, both legitimate and malicious, we upgraded our site to a dedicated (rather than shared) server with larger capacity.

Importantly, new software now blocks IP addresses that attempt to overrun the site. For example, an IP address in Israel recently attempted to access the site 13,125 times within the span of three days. These attacks are now being blocked. We all know who are the enemies of this site.

All this required an investment in the services of a web person, software purchases, and expenses in upgrading our servers. These expenses have cut into the funds on hand to pay our writers, all of whom certainly deserve to be compensated at least somewhat for what inevitably remains for them mainly a labor of love.

Please help us out. We are of course very grateful to those who are continuing to support us and have helped us in the past.

Our Donation Page gives instructions on tax-deductible and non-tax-deductible donations, as well as the mailing address for money orders and checks.

 

2017 Fundraising Appeal: Thanks

We are winding up our annual year-end fundraising appeal—our only appeal of the year (but that may change depending on how things go). I’d like to thank those who have contributed during 2017. (The donation button at the top of the page on the far right — the one with the coins in the logo — works. The other one doesn’t, at least for some people.) Your support is much appreciated. With your generous support, we have been able to put out well over 300 articles, blogs, and translations in the past year. Our video archive, established on January 1, 2013, now has dozens of videos. the comments section is open once again, responding to the need to feel part of an intellectual community.

Your support is important for many of our writers, and we are trying our best to be competitive with other websites in paying them. Donations of all amounts are welcome. As always, the financial base for projects like TOO is dwarfed by the financial resources of our enemies. Nobody is getting rich here, or even making a living by writing for TOO, but your support is a huge psychological boost for many.

This is an exciting time. As we have pointed out many times, politics throughout the West is becoming ever more racialized. White people are increasingly concerned about the changes they see all around them, and Whites are definitely worried about becoming a minority. We know that politicians are forced to toe the line when it comes to issues like immigration, multiculturalism, and Jewish power and influence. However, the presence of intelligent, well-written commentary on contemporary issues may well seep into their consciousness even though they can’t discuss issues the way we do. We are the conscience of White America in an age when there are vast temptations to give in to the system.

As these changes continue to accelerate, White people will increasingly identify as White and support causes that advance the interests of Whites. It is therefore critical to maintain an intellectually honest critique of the current regime. TOO is one of the few websites that deals explicitly with all of the enemies of our people and does so in a fact-based, rational manner.

The page with information on donations is here. This page has been updated to provide greater clarity. There are two sections, the top section for tax deductible donations and the bottom section for non-tax deductible donations respectively. Let me know if any of the instructions are unclear.

Thanks for thinking of TOO. And Merry Christmas!

Why support the Occidental Observer?

  1. There are political reasons to support TOO:
    • Survival: Western societies, including the USA, are rapidly dissolving under the twin attacks of mass Third World immigration and domestic ethnic competition (“multiculturalism”, “political correctness”, “affirmative action”, “equal opportunity”).
    • Pride: Whites have been kicked around for too long. It’s time to stop white flight and to reclaim our cities, our schools, and our jobs.
    • Truth and Justice: There are also matters of principle. In a liberal democracy good policies result from the truth being told. Lies are not only a vexation to the spirit, they result in the sort of bad governance that is dragging down America.
  2. There are also operational reasons:
    • Euro-Americans need to build activist organizations able to rival the large minority agencies such as the American Jewish Committee, the ADL, the NAACP, and La Raza. We also need to challenge the academic orthodoxy that has smothered White concerns for generations. TOO is your champion. We are willing to step forward on your behalf. But the website can only be as strong as you allow it to be.
    • TOO needs to professionalize. We have set up TOO on a shoe-string budget. We are determined to do much more, with new departments and in-depth analysis of the issues that concern white Americans. There are skilled and knowledge professionals willing to join the TOO team. But volunteer labor can only go so far.
    • Small donations make a difference when multiplied hundreds of times. Donations are more effective when made regularly because this allows us to forecast revenue and plan new projects accordingly. That is why an automatic credit card deposit of $10 per month is more valuable to us than a lump-sum payment of $120 per year. (However, we will accept lump sums . . .)
    • Ultimately we want White majority organizations to be so strong that politicians feel that they have no choice but to listen to their concerns. The results of the 2014 election show that Whites are increasingly voting on the basis of their racial identity. This will continue as Whites feel threatened by the rising tide of non-Whites imported by our hostile elites. Even when we are excluded from the mainstream media, we give confidence to politicians who oppose the present policies such as massive non-White immigration.

TOO Annual Fundraiser for 2013: Much to be optimistic about

It’s time for our annual year-end fundraising appeal—our only appeal of the year. I’d like to first thank those who have contributed during 2013. Much appreciated. With your generous support, we have been able to put out well over 200 articles and blogs in the past year.

A very promising trend is that we are attracting many excellent writers—people like Domitius Corbulo whose review of Filipe Fernandez-Armesto’s Pathfinders is has recently been our featured article. Armesto’s book is typical of the cultural Marxism that pervades the academic world: lack of concern for the empirical evidence and seething with hostility to Europeans, their history and their culture. The good news is that we now have a critical mass of writers on this site and on other like-minded sites—writers who are on board with our issues and are willing and able to write articles that provide insight into our malaise and provide the sort of cultural confidence that is necessary for long-term success. One of the exciting things about the present state of the Internet is that there are quite a few excellent outlets for White advocacy and other sites opposed to the constant barrage of propaganda from the mainstream media on all things related to immigration and multiculturalism.

Last Day: 2012 TOO Fundraising Appeal

It’s time for our annual year-end fundraising appeal—our only appeal of the year. I’d like to first thank those who have contributed during 2012.  Much appreciated . With your generous support, we have been able to put out close to 300 articles and blogs in the past year.

A very promising trend is that we are attracting some very smart new writers—people like Domitius Corbulo, Andrew Joyce, and Brenton Sanderson and Cooper Sterling. And we continue to post articles from long term stalwarts like Edmund Connelly and Tom Sunic. We now have a critical mass of writers on this site and on other like-minded sites—writers who are on board with our issues and are willing and able to write articles that provide insight into our malaise and provide the sort of cultural confidence that is necessary for long term success.

We are doing pretty well financially—we are definitely not going away, but we could certainly do better. Several of our stalwarts are providing material gratis, and others are underpaid in terms of their situation in life and need for income.

The page with information on donations is here. This page has been updated to provide greater clarity. There are two sections, the top section for tax deductible donations and the bottom section for non-tax deductible donations respectively. Let me know if any of the instructions are unclear.

One of the exciting things about the present state of the Internet is that there are quite a few outlets now for White advocacy as well as sites that are critical of Jewish influence and Israel. In fact, one has the feeling that Jewish organizations are on the defensive, particularly about Israel. Israel is increasingly showing its Jewish character as a hostile, aggressive, ethnonationalist state with all of the characteristics that make organized Jewish Diaspora communities in the West such formidable foes.

Thanks for thinking of TOO. And Merry Christmas!
