White Racial Consciousness and Advocacy

James Edwards of The Political Cesspool at a Donald Trump Rally in Memphis

I attended a Donald Trump rally in Memphis on Saturday night as a fully credentialed member of the media and enjoyed the unique experience of being able to air a live broadcast of The Political Cesspool Radio Program from inside the press pen while the event was in full swing. (Next Saturday’s show [March 5] will feature a previously taped 20-minute interview with Donald Trump, Jr.) It was a very memorable day and I’d now like to take my audience behind the scenes.

After receiving my credentials from the campaign, I was instructed to get there early for set-up and to go through security. At approximately 1:30 PM I arrived at the Millington Regional Airport, where the rally was to be held inside one of the hangars. There was already a long line of supporters waiting to gain entry even though I was on-scene nearly five hours before Trump ascended to the podium. With rock music blaring and people tailgating in the parking lot it felt very much like a college football atmosphere. There were plenty of vendors hawking Trump merchandise, but the most impressive display was a concession stand offering the “Make America Great Again Trump Burger.” Naturally, this monster featured 100% American beef and 100% American cheese. Other items being offered included the “Ted Cruz Burger” (which featured Canadian Bacon), Bernie Sanders Pork Nachos, and Hillary Clinton SOFT drinks — that had been scrubbed clean.

I was fortunate to be able to bypass the crowd and long line by parking in a VIP area designated for members of the press, which was located directly behind the hangar. When I got out of my car I almost immediately ran into Trump beat reporter Katy Tur of NBC News. Katy first became known to me a couple of months ago after watching an interview she did with Trump.I must say though that she comes across as having an overall pleasant personality on television, and she was most certainly a sweetheart when we talked. Interestingly, she is the former girlfriend of Keith Olbermann, who once referred to me as “the worst person in the world” on his unimpressive and now thankfully canceled television show. Read more

“The Return of Odysseus” by Michael Walker

return of odysseusThe Return of Odysseus
by Michael Walker

This is a well-written and highly readable play, and I got through it in a couple of normal working days. It tells the famous Homeric tale of the prolonged absence and final return of the eponymous Greek hero to his home island, and the resulting revenge he exacts on the unruly suitors of his wife, Penelope.

Author Michael Walker is well known in nationalist circles as the editor of Scorpion magazine, a publication which first began the not particularly easy task of introducing the ideas of the European New Right to an English-speaking audience back in the 1990s.

For this reason it a may be difficult to read this play as it should be read, namely as a purely “metapolitical” work, that is one in which the message is an indistinguishable part of the art. Instead, like me, you may feel a tendency to read it politically, and to interpret certain lines as referring to specific contemporary nationalist issues.

But while political consciousness and an awareness of the writer’s sympathies may detract from a perfect metapolitical reading, I have to say I rather enjoyed these “political flashes,” and many here will also enjoy them, I am sure.

For example, in Act Two, Scene Two, Mentor, a member of the Assembly of Ithaca, describes the sorry state that the island kingdom has fallen into since the monarch’s absence:

There is not one palace which is plundered, but the entire land. Ithaca is growing sick while the tapeworms of the market grow fat on a land for which they never fought, which they never tend and never loved. The homeland has almost as many immigrants as natives. No one respects the Ithacan customs. The children are hardened and use the lowest language of the streets. The public coffers are plundered by parasites and aliens. Money is made by distortion and usury. Honest work is badly paid. The richest men are middlemen and speculators. The labourer is poor. (p. 128)

Reading these words, it is not ancient Ithaca that rises before your mental eye, but modern Britain, or some other “enriched” part of the West. One is almost surprised not to find a reference to Muslim grooming gangs! But, then, a piece of rhetorical eloquence or a classical reference snaps you back to the ancient story world in which this is set, and, from a thinly disguised satire on our diseased modern times, the story assumes once again the elegance of timeless tragedy.

Free Speech on Campus, Student Organizations and our Future


Editor’s note: This article on establishing student organizations that are explicitly for White students is reposted with permission from the National Youth Front website. They also have an article on a story from Canada where someone claiming to represent the Students for Western Civilization distributed the above poster around the campus at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto, and York University. The simple action of putting out these posters caused a moral panic in Canada, where the story received national coverage, including  an article on the CBC website.

The piece [by Students for Western Civilization] says that York University students are indoctrinated by “neo-Marxism” and that “neo-Marxists identify white people as oppressors and everyone else as ‘the oppressed.”‘ It says a white students’ union would promote and celebrate the culture of western civilization.

Since they couldn’t reach any of the students involved, the CBC contacted Prof. Ricardo Duchesne of the University of New Brunswick who is featured in a video on the SfWC website. Prof. Duchesne “maintained in the video there was “a real bias in university against white students, against white history.” … Duchesne said that universities taking the posters down proves his point of anti-western civilization bias. He said if it had been a minority ethnic group’s student union “nobody would have thought anything about it, they would have said, ‘that’s great, that’s what diversity is about.”‘

Investigative Reporter Peter Fricke recently uncovered some interesting details on a university’s control  of free speech and student organizations. His article, which exposes a student’s “realistic” freedoms as they pertained to the University of South Carolina (Columbia), appeared on the Leadership Institute’s website Campus Reform, a popular college news outlet (see “South Carolina Student Group Stymied by Free Speech Zones, Sept. 8, 2015). The story line centered around a Libertarian leaning political activist group, Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), and the challenges they faced in arranging on-campus meetings, recruiting new followers, and expressing their political view points in public.

Now at face value, a young person could read this article and come away thinking how unfair or unconstitutional it is for a publicly funded university to create such a labyrinth of obstacles in its effort to bureaucratize the rights of speech and association on campus. But if one digs deeper, there’s a side story that’s even more important to our readers here: These YAL members may have been shocked into the realities of restrictive speech and association, but their challenges are by no means insurmountable. On checking their national website they boast of over 500 existing chapters in colleges across our nation. Clearly, these Libertarians and conservatives have a voice that can be heard by all young adults as they spread their message.   And since they have gained official status as a “registered student group”, there must be hundreds of college professors or staff that are sponsoring these local YAL chapters. So even though it may not be easy, YAL has been sanctioned by the collegiate system to exist and spread. In fact, a prominent politician whose organization inspired YAL, Dr. Ron Paul, was able to have a mainstream presence in his running for the Presidency in 2012.   In effect, it is politically correct (PC) and okay to form a YAL chapter.

“Fascists” and “Antifascists”: The Standard Memes Ignore the Real Costs of Immigration and Multiculturalism

(Below is my response to “A New Chapter in the Fascist Internationale” by Alexander Reid Ross, in Counterpunch, September 16, 2015.

Mr. Alexander Reid Ross

Dear Mr. Ross:

I read with great interest your article, “A New Chapter in the Fascist Internationale,” published in Counterpunch and must commend you on your polished syntax and a good, albeit somewhat hasty summary of what is awkwardly termed the “World National-Conservative Movement.”  As a long time reader and admirer of some Counterpunch authors who dispel the myth of progress and who tackle the liberal mystique of permanent economic growth,  it’s quite possible that we have more in common than what may appear in my critical remarks. Having ties with many so-called “White nationalists” in all parts of the world, and being also a Director of the American Freedom Party, let me try to put things into a short conceptual and linguistic perspective first.

The words ‘Fascism’ and ‘Nazism’ are constantly used as weapons to vilify people who identify as White and have a sense of White interests, to the point that these words  have now become meaningless. Both have been so much subject to semantic distortions over the last 70 years, to the point that there is no longer any meaningful relationship between current movements labeled with those terms and the cultural-political movements in the Europe of the early twentieth century.  (I am sure Noam Chomsky would partly agree with that).  Instead, the term ‘Fascism’ is tossed around today as a generic locution in order to criminalize and pathologize any non-conformist White person or any group of White people by implying that they are nothing more than xenophobic haters.

Talmud and Taboo: Part Two of Two

Part 1.

In the sphere of Continental right-wing populism, the trend has been no less pronounced. Observing the creeping Islamic invasion of Europe, several key leaders on the European Right have carelessly abandoned centuries of wisdom gained from their forefather’s interactions with Jewry, and have adopted a worldview in which Islam is the primary enemy of the European people. Ignoring the well-documented role that Jews have played in opening our borders and silencing honest racial discourse, these leaders have instead moronically reached out to Israel, which they see as being at the front line of a “Judaeo-Christian” holy war with Islam.

Examples are plentiful. The Front National (FN) in France has expressly distanced itself from “anti-Semitism” and its leaders have even portrayed themselves as “the only true protectors of Jews in Europe.” Since assuming party leadership in 2011, Marine Le Pen has worked to “modernize” her father’s party — essentially the process of purging its anti-Jewish, anti-Zionist elements. Le Pen demoted party figures like Christian Bouchet for his support of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and expelled Alexandre Gabriac for the drunken indiscretion of giving a taboo salute during a party.

Alexandre Gabriac: Unlikely to be seen waving Israeli flags any time soon.

Alexandre Gabriac: Unlikely to be seen waving Israeli flags any time soon.

As early as 2009 Le Pen began distancing herself from Alain Soral, relegating the vocal anti-Zionist to an “honorary” position in the 2009 European election campaign before the latter decided to cut his losses and leave the party. An “honorary” position was also, of course, bestowed upon Le Pen’s father, effectively rendering him a figurehead devoid of actual power or influence.

Quite apart from these purges, Marine Le Pen has made a series of overtures to organized Jewry. In 2011, during a trip to the United States, Le Pen managed to get a well-publicized meeting with Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, who attended a gathering she hosted at the United Nations. Although Israel’s foreign ministry later rushed to explain that the meeting was based on a “misunderstanding,” Le Pen made much of the evening’s press releases, which depicted a smiling Prosnor standing next to her. But to what gain or reward? Read more

The Cuckservative Phenomenon

ActOfLove (1)

The cuckservative meme is suddenly everywhere. It’s brash, it’s witty, and it’s often embedded in visually appealing graphics — a new art form really (see collection here). It’s effective partly because its messages are short and simple. The SPLC, NYTimes, ADL et al. have been using this strategy for decades. Terms like “White supremacist,” “racist,” “anti-Semite,” and “Nazi” have been devastatingly effective, but they are only effective because they are disseminated by our hostile elites. It’s no accident that, Jeet Heer, writing in The New Republic, says that the cuckservative meme originated in “the white supremacist movement.”

When someone makes such a claim, it’s supposed to be the end of the argument. These labels have zero intellectual content, and yet they have been extraordinarily effective in making a great many Whites think that it’s a moral imperative that they become a minority in societies they have dominated for hundreds or thousands of years. You’re not supposed to think when you hear them — just cringe at the thought of  being egregiously immoral as defined by people who have radically different ethnic interests than you do. They are intended to shut off debate before it can start by automatically tarring one side as evil.

Yes, I do think that Whites, like Koreans in Korea and Ethiopians in Ethiopia, should do their best to remain in control of the countries their ancestors fought and died for. I do think races are different, that Whites have interests because they are White, and that if things don’t change dramatically, the entire institutional structure built by Whites will eventually be destroyed and Whites victimized. And, yes, Jews, like any group and especially an elite group with enormous power in the media, politics, and the academic world, should be subjected to rational criticism. These views are profoundly moral points of view.


But now this same strategy has been bubbling up from the bottom due ultimately to the internet. And it combines  intellectual power with simplicity. Bob Whitaker, who is the presidential candidate for the American Freedom Party, pioneered this strategy with his  mantras — simple statements that, unlike the mantras of the establishment, make devastatingly accurate, intellectually unanswerable points: “Asia for the Asians, Africa for the Africans, White countries for everybody!”  “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.” I recall during my email debates on the CSU-LB faculty listserv that several times I made versions of the “Asia is for Asians…” argument. Not one response from these SJW’s who populate our departments of social sciences and humanities. Just move on as if the argument didn’t exist. Unlike the labels cooked up by our hostile elites that succeed only through power and relentless propaganda, the argument is compelling because it obviously reflects a basic truth. But, as usual, when the left can’t answer an argument, they ignore it and do their best to get those making it fired. It will be the same with cuckservative. Read more

Another Anti-Shomrim demo in London

“This is England, this is our land. We’re not scared anymore because we’ve nothing left to lose.” With these words Jez Turner, the organiser of the London Forum, faced a howling Jewish and antifa mob at the latest ‘oppose the Shomrim’ demonstration in central London.

About 30 White nationalist and patriot demonstrators from a variety of organisations  assembled beside a banner bearing the slogan “Equal Rights for Indigenous Whites.” They were protesting against the establishment of sectarian Jewish police unit called the “Shomrim” for the Jewish community and funded by taxpayer money.

The protesters were outnumbered by the Jewish and antifa mob, who had been bussed in from various parts of the country and were assembled on three sides of the demo although both sides were outnumbered by a huge crowd of curious onlookers.

As Jez Turner recited a litany of notable Jewish “achievements” through the ages, his words seemed to rouse the mob into hysterical outrage and they screamed “arrest him.”

Given the relative success of the first anti-Shomrim demo in April, the authorities in London were clearly determined this could not be allowed to happen a second time. They largely succeeded.

The second demonstration took place in difficult circumstances after one of the organisers was arrested on the eve of demo. Then the police switched the venue to an out of the way corner of the Whitehall government office district, far away from the intended Golders Green area.

Predictably the event was ignored by the media with the exception of Russia Today which broadcast extensive footage of the protesters.

Specifically it showed how they could threaten violence with impunity. Read more
