The Continuing Fictitious Struggle

By Paul Gottfried, American Consequences Antifascists and others on the Left like to believe they have been struggling against the same Right for almost 100 years. But there is little evidence for this assumption. Breitbart last week published a commentary about homosexuals who were demonstrating against the Israelis […]

Addressing “Anti-Woke” Leftists

I’m not a fan of Vaush, but this is an unusually articulate defense of the intersectional left perspective. Of course, his analysis is still contained within the narrow and overly reductionist race/class/gender framework and progressive/reactionary dualism. Institutions have interests of their own, over and above their formal function […]

Welcome to the New Age of Anarcho-Fascism

For the prosecution. From 2017. By Jared Keller, Pacific Standard On August 15th, President Donald Trump threw the door wide open for American fascism. Speaking confidently on his home turf of Trump Tower in New York City, Trump blamed “many sides” for the violent clashes between antifascists and alt-right groups […]

The Anarcho-Fascist Manifesto

For the defense. By Velkan Corvinus, The Revolutionary Conservative Today, April 20, 2021, we decreed the birth of the NTC, this being our first day of public struggle for the Tempestist Revolution: calling for the organization of our struggle and resistance. Our only objective is the destruction of […]

The Three Lefts

Michael Lind discusses the “three lefts”: trade unionists, socialists, and intersectional leftists. I’d say that for all practical purposes, the USA now has what amounts to three political parties: The party of “woke capitalism” (most Democrats, neocons, and Never Trumpers), the populist right (which is becoming more like […]

Left is the new right

By They/Them, The Spectator A regular column by an anonymous whistle-blower operating deep within heart of the Social Justice Movement. To protect their identity, they will go under the code-name ‘They/Them’. Wokeyleaks is a confidential news leak organization for anyone wishes to divulge classified information (and hilarious anecdotes) […]

A Trap for Modern Social Democracy

By Peter Brandt  Telos During the past few weeks the debate over identity politics and viewpoint diversity in Germany has been unfolding. The starting point was an article in the Frankfurter Allgemeine by Wolfgang Thierse, not known for eccentric positions, concerning the conduct of the debate around the […]

The looming Democrat Civil War

By Joel Kotkin The Democratic Party has always been a loose confederation of outsiders — poor farmers, union members, populists, European immigrants and southern segregationists. As the actor Will Rogers said in 1924: “I am not a member of any organised political party. I am a Democrat.” Yet […]

Is It Time to Cancel FDR?

Michael Lind nails it again. The Democrats are now the new Rockefeller Republicans, and the Republicans are now Jacksonian Democrats (as was FDR). By Michael Lind, Tablet Seventy-six years ago today, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, serving his fourth term in office, died in his “little White House” in […]

Remembering Leo Strauss

One of the neocons’ intellectual godfathers. Know your enemy. By Grant Haver The political theorist Leo Strauss (1899-1973) is perhaps an unlikely subject for Chronicles’ “Remembering the Right” series. Although no one can deny the extensive influence of his ideas on the conservative (and later, neoconservative) movement in […]

The Coming Counter-Coup Against the GOP

This article contains a fairly interesting critique of the police/carceral state from a “culturally conservative” perspective. If we can get the Left and Right hating the prison-industrial complex with equal fervor, then we’ve got something. By Stephen Baskerville, Chronicles The left’s new monopoly cannot be resisted without breaking […]
