• Charlie Kirk: The Civil Rights Act ‘Created A Beast’ That ‘Turned Into An Anti-White Weapon’

    Occidental Dissent - Apr 17th 2024 3:16pm EDT

    I will reiterate my advice. Don’t become an internet edgelord. Just call yourself a conservative populist. Focus on your own personal life and career path. “Become Who You Are” by becoming the policy wonk with the credentials to be hired to work on something like immigration policy or unraveling the civil rights bureaucracy. Eyes on […]

  • Ezra Klein Show: The Rise of Middle Finger Politics

    Occidental Dissent - Apr 1st 2024 9:13pm EDT

    LISTEN HERE I had a good laugh listening to this over the weekend. It is Ezra Klein and John Ganz discussing the rise of rightwing populism from the 1990s to the 2024 campaign. I know David Duke personally. My father-in-law knew Pat Buchanan and Sam Francis. I have been around long enough to remember Murray […]

  • All Grown Up

    Occidental Dissent - Apr 1st 2024 5:52pm EDT

    Alt-Right 2.0 is a terrible idea. I look back on that era like a bad picture in a high school yearbook. In a lot of ways, I haven’t changed at all. I am still a stridently antiwar isolationist. I am still concerned about mass immigration and demographic change. I am still an anti-globalist. I am […]

    Are you looking for a reason to support The Revenge Tour? CNBC: “A federal jury on Friday said Donald Trump must pay E. Jean Carroll a total of $83.3 million in damages for defaming her in statements he made as president after the writer said he had raped her in a New York department store in the 1990s.

  • Poll Watch: Record Low In U.S. Satisfied With Way “Democracy” Is Working

    Occidental Dissent - Jan 10th 2024 10:38am EST

    “Democracy” is on the ballot in 2024. By “democracy,” Democracy Defenders mean our current system of censoring the internet, deplatforming their opponents through mob violence, civil lawsuits, weaponizing the FBI against their political opponents, ballot harvesting, month long elections, week long vote counts, invoking the 14th Amendment to remove their political opponents from the ballot, […]

  • Poll Watch: Americans Split On “Standing With Israel”

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 23rd 2023 8:43pm EDT

    I’m not completely blackpilled. The polling on blindly “Standing With Israel” is mixed. CNN Poll: CBS/YouGov: Unlike on “Standing With Ukraine,” the Democrats are badly split on Israel. You would also never know that Republicans are also divided given the coverage on FOX News. There is no racial or class polarization on “Standing With Israel.” […]

  • Poll Watch: Americans Are Deeply Sympathetic Toward Israelis

    Occidental Dissent - Oct 15th 2023 5:47pm EDT

    This is what you call burying the lede. CNN: The American public expresses deep sympathy for the Israeli people and broadly sees the Israeli government’s military response to Hamas’ attacks as justified, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, and two-thirds are at least somewhat worried the fighting between Israel and Hamas could lead to […]

  • Poll Watch: Americans’ Dismal View of the Nation’s Politics

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 23rd 2023 10:09am EDT

    Read the whole thing. I have included a few highlights below. As I have argued in recent weeks, “The Collapse” began a few years ago. We are currently living through it. The system is breaking down and losing legitimacy. Overwhelming cynicism and pessimism about politics is the norm. The people who still have faith in […]

  • Democracy Defenders Take On The Constitution

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 17th 2023 9:07am EDT

    As I have explained, my belief is that the remnants of the Constitution are mostly a good thing that vex people like this, but the Constitution has been disfigured by Lincoln, the Radical Republicans, the Progressives, FDR and others and doesn’t have much to do with how we are governed. Note: Defending Democracy is arresting […]

    Democracy Defenders insist that democracy is fragile. It is fragile because it is human. It is fragile because it is up to us. In order to save democracy from dangerous authoritarians like Trump though, we might on occasion have to dispense with democracy when public opinion isn’t trending our way. The only way to save […]

    If Donald Trump could sweep the OD comment section again like in 2016, he could probably easily be elected president in 2024 USA Today: Donald Trump’s argument that the 2020 election was rigged has reinforced the views of Americans who are already disenchanted about politics, one factor in their inclination not to cast a vote next year ?

  • George Floyd’s Cultural Legacy

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 5th 2023 11:38am EDT

    I’m feeling satisfied. Over the past week or two, the movement barfed up another vanguardist shooter in Jacksonville and Blood Tribe led a Neo-Nazi goon march in Orlando that got a lot of media attention, but for some reason these two events were not as impactful as they might have been in the past.

  • The Atlantic: What Really Happens When Americans Stop Going to Church

    Occidental Dissent - Sep 3rd 2023 11:20pm EDT

    This was me in the early 2000s. The Atlantic: It seems clear that Christian nationalism attracts a lot of adherents who rarely go to church themselves. A PRRI survey published earlier this year showed that only 54 percent of Christian nationalists—and just 42 percent of those who are “sympathizers” with the ideology—attend church regularly.
