The main limitation of most liberal and left critiques of the police state is that these are primarily limited to dubious killings of civilians, racial disparities, and official forms of “police misconduct” as conventionally defined. And usually, these critiques are limited to the municipal police. That’s a start […]
Asian Americans Are Still Caught in the Trap of the ‘Model Minority’ Stereotype. And It Creates Inequality for All
As an Asian friend of mine once said, “Hey, we can be fuckups, too!” By Viet Thanh Nguyen The face of Tou Thao haunts me. The Hmong-American police officer stood with his back turned to Derek Chauvin, his partner, as Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for 8 […]
As Krystal Ball recently said, “Capitalists are going to capitalist.” And what are these virtue-signaling realtors going to do to make housing more available or affordable to the poor communities of Houston, some of whom are actually black? Are they going to lower rents, reduce real estate sale […]
You don’t say? Imagine that. Analysis by Josh Campbell, CNN Security Correspondent The dramatic images rocked the nation — hundreds of thousands of people from all races taking to the streets across the United States, demanding an end to excessive police force against people of color. What began […]
An interesting debate between a black leftist and a black conservative. I would generally agree with Michelle Alexander’s thesis that the police/carceral state and prison-industrial complex is merely the modern version of American black slavery or Jim Crow. But where I would disagree is that I think her […]
A somewhat interesting interview with a leading black conservative. I would be inclined to argue that, at present, substantial sectors of the capitalist class (including some major capitalist entities) along with their allies in the new clerisy/new class that dominates the “ideas industries” are fueling anti-racism hysteria in […]
This is fucking unbelievable. Hershey literally uses black children in West Africa as slaves on its chocolate plantations. Not modern wage slaves. The pre-modern type of slaves. I’m beginning to understand why Maoist-types tend to massacre the entire capitalist class. This is Twilight Zone level stuff here. By […]
There were plenty of whites and people other ethnic groups that participated in the black civil rights movement in the 50s and 60s. Nothing wrong with that. Obviously, there are a lot of virtue signalers, do-gooders, moral panickers, middle-class co-opters, ruling class opportunists, exaggerated sports rioters, and left-wing […]
And a lot of these slaves are being used by Western corporations while Western governments look the other way. All of the rhetoric coming from Western elites about “human rights,” “democracy,” “civil rights,” etc has about as much seriousness and legitimacy as when the ancient Egyptian rulers claimed […]
The Left is making the same mistake it made in the Spanish Civil War, and with the same results. By Jason Scott Jones Lifesite News June 26, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In 2013, the New York Times published a bleak essay titled “The End of a Catholic Moment,” mourning […]
Therefore reinforcing the stereotype that skin color determines voice texture or accent as opposed to geography, culture, and class. BBC The show, broadcast on Fox Network, has faced years of criticism over white actor Hank Azaria’s voiceover of Indian-American character Apu. Mr Azaria said earlier this year that […]
“America’s face abroad” is bullets, bombs, and tanks, combined with McDonald’s golden arches, Coca-Cola cans, and Hollywood films. Americanization is antithetical to “diversity.” By Lara Jakes New York Times WASHINGTON — Tianna Spears dreamed for years of becoming an American diplomat. She quit in January after two, and […]
This kind of like when Lenin referred to middle-class liberals as useful idiots for the revolution. If these do-gooder types can be guilt-shamed into anti-piggishness, fine. Whatever works. By Caitlin Dickerson New York Times MINNEAPOLIS — When Shari Albers moved three decades ago into Powderhorn Park, a tree-lined […]
That would be interesting. Krystal and Saagar react to BET Founder Robert Johnson say that Democrats and Joe Biden take black voters for granted.
Atheist-leftist Kyle Kulinski defends the right of Christians to have a white Jesus image on private property.
If recent events are a foreshadowing of events to come, which they may well be, it would seem that the lumpenproletariat faces five primary dangers when it comes to future revolutionary activity.
What I find most interesting about this article is that it shows Americans not only live in what amounts to different countries, but they also inhabit what amounts to different realities. What matters is the myths, legends, and symbols that different tribes hold to and not concrete factual […]
A major problem that leftists often have is not knowing when to quit while they’re ahead. They’re like compulsive gamblers who always end up blowing their winnings on more gambling. Few things provide more ideological/rhetorical ammunition to the right than this kind of stuff. It’s like these folks […]
Kudos to my old Internet “friend” Matthew Lyons. However oblivious he may be to the neo-Jacobin/neo-Maoist Blue Tribe Khomeinists, when it comes to the issue of ruling cooptation, he gets it. I agree with every word of this. Read the full article here. These two passages from the […]
Based on all of the articles, videos, and first-person commentary I’ve seen so far, it seems like there have been seven basic categories of participants in the uprising/street battles to date. I’m curious as to whether others would agree with this assessment based on their own experiences. Conventional […]
From June 13. The uprising has been far too large for the far-left to have played that big of a role. The right-wing has greatly exaggerated the role of the far-left in all of this, and left-wing has exaggerated the role of the far-right (whose presence has been […]
By Tom Hale IFL Science The Yanomami Indigenous people have launched a campaign to kick out thousands of gold miners from their land in the Brazilian Amazon. An estimated 10,000 to 20,000 illegal gold miners have set up shop in Yanomami Park, one of Brazil’s biggest indigenous reserves, near […]
By Stacey Patton Washington Post The historical seasons have changed, and once again, America’s trees are bearing a strange and bitter fruit — dead black bodies. In less than one month, six black people have been found hanging from trees, in California, Georgia, New York, Oregon and Texas. […]
Kamala Harris would be the ruling class’ ideal figurehead at this point. A “woman of color” who consolidates the totalitarian humanist ideological framework with the left hand, while strengthening the police/carceral state with the right hand. Sen. Kamala Harris speaks on the Senate floor about historical and modern […]
Inter-tribal violence is ALWAYS a bad idea. By Steven Brocklehurst BBC Scotland The Punjab was split down the middle and many people did not if they would be living in Pakistan or India.
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley One thing that has become crystal fucking clear to any sane sentient creature with a pulse who has paid attention to current events over the last month is the fact that America’s cherished fascist institution known as the […]
By Troy Southgate Those of you who are genuinely opposed to injustice, regardless whether you think Blacks get a worse deal than Whites or vice versa, might like to set your emotions to one side for a moment and think about the following. The mass protests organised by […]
Kyle’s commentary in this is pretty good.
Krystal Ball calls out D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Dem establishment for surface level support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
By SAR “Some one who doesn’t think Racism is systemic in America or even systemic in our Police systems explain to me why they disagree with the US Department of Justice. The United States Department of Justice (DOJ), also known as the Justice Department, is a federal executive […]
A reflection on the problem of interclass and intra-lumpen proletarian conflict. Many positive things have happened in the uprising. These include the mass participation of normies and civilians (non-revolutionaries) in protests and civil disobedience against the state, along with direct attacks on the state such as the destruction […]
By Joshua Cheetham BBC When Valentina Blackhorse tested positive for coronavirus, she texted her sister and told her not to worry. A former pageant queen, Valentina was known for her love of her Native American Navajo heritage, her passion for helping others and her playful sense of humour. […]
The statistical data Carlson cites at the beginning of this is interesting. Black Lives Matter may be the single most powerful political party in the United States.
That articles like this keep appearing in the New York Times clearly indicates that the elite strategy is to protect the state by making it appear as though police state excesses are merely a racial issue, as opposed to the race issue merely being a symptom of the […]
The right-wing of the ruling class seems to be divided over the issue of co-optation versus repression, while the left-wing of the ruling class clearly favors co-optation and is moving aggressively to do so. The Deep State and the uppermost strata of the power elite seem to prefer […]
I’m not so sure that it did. What I find most fascinating about the recent low-intensity insurrection is not the insurrection itself but the near-total indifference of the ruling class combined with the immediate move of vast sectors of the ruling class to co-opt the insurgency, from the […]
While I agree with 99% of this article, I’m a bit suspicious as to why the New York Times (“Voice of the Ruling Class”-Abbie Hoffman) was willing to publish it. It seems like some kind of co-optation scheme is in the works. The left-wing of the ruling class […]
By Nicky Reid aka Comrade Hermit Exile in Happy Valley White people hate to talk about race, even the supposedly woke ones. When they do, the entire conversation is almost inevitably governed by fear. With white conservatives, it’s usually the fear of being made irrelevant by darker bodies. […]
Most of this sounds like capitalist class co-optation efforts, celebrity self-promotion, symbolic gestures, token reformism, and totalitarian humanist opportunism. In other words, nothing much at all has changed, at least not yet. BBC There have been protests around the world over the way police treat black people and […]
Krystal’s “capitalists are going to capitalist” line is hilarious. Krystal and Saagar discuss Starbuck’s ban on Black Lives Matter merchandise for their employees, Apple CEO Tim Cook announces $100M commitment for racial equality and justice.
If Native American tribes were states they would be the top 5 states in terms of COVID-19 infection rate.

Influencers are slammed for posing in BLACKFACE in a horribly misguided effort to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement
To be fair, the people doing this seem to be outside the Anglosphere and don’t understand the cultural significance of this in the Atlanticist world. By Carly Stern Daily Mail
I totally disagree with Laura here, but not for the usual reasons. So far I have actually seen very little “canceling America” going on in the present uprising. Unlike Berkeley or Charlottesville, which were low-grade sports riots carried out by rookie-league middle-class gangs, the present uprising is a […]
The main problem I have with Black Lives Matter is the name sounds overly gushy and sentimental. I much prefer names like Black Panthers or Black Liberation Army. Krystal and Saagar discuss a report from the New York Times that shows how fast public opinion has changed in […]
Rarely have I seen an illustration of what is wrong with “woke” culture that is more pertinent than this. Not only is Baroness Jane from an elite Hollywood family (the modern American equivalent of the aristocracy) but she has been a political lightning rod for 50 years (I […]
It’s not surprising this would happen in North Carolina. Footwashing is considered to be a sacrament (like Baptism or Eucharist) in some really, really low rent Protestant denominations (whose members are almost always poor whites or poor blacks). But it is interesting to see a practice that is […]
By Troy Southgate How interesting that British tea giants PG Tips and Tetleys have come out in support of Black Lives Matter. Although these capitalist parasites will be hoping to sell more teabags as a result of uttering a few politically correct platitudes, I suppose they’ve forgotten how […]
