• Poll: Wokeism Is a Major Loser For Democrats

    Occidental Dissent - Dec 17th 2021 9:15am EST (Archive)

    This shouldn’t come as a surprise. There is a reason why Republicans love to talk about Wokeism. 48% of Republicans think that “only people being too easily offended is a major problem” compared to 5% who think “only people saying very offensive things is a major problem If we take these positions as rough approximations […]

  • Charlottesville’s Statue of Robert E. Lee Will Be Melted Down

    Occidental Dissent - Dec 9th 2021 12:08pm EST (Archive)

    I don’t have much to say about this. This is a fitting end to “Charlottesville” though. This reflects the mindset of the woke progressives who live in Charlottesville. Back in 2017, I went there with the League of the South because I loved the statue and opposed the people who wanted to tear it down. […]

  • David Brooks: Conservatism: An Elegy

    Occidental Dissent - Dec 9th 2021 9:10am EST (Archive)

    Editor’s Note: This is a work in progress. David Brooks has written a eulogy for American conservatism in the latest edition of The Atlantic. The great hope over there is to persuade the True Cons or suburban moderate center-right voters that Donald Trump is such a unique authoritarian threat to liberal democracy that they need […]

  • Politico: Democrats Are Alienating “Latinx” Voters

    BIDEN: “Latinx” people don’t want to get vaccinated because they’re worried they’ll be deported. Yikes. pic.twitter.com/gLPw1eUpRl — Townhall.com (@townhallcom) June 24, 2021 To be clear my office is not allowed to use “Latinx” in official communications. When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the […]

  • Left Authoritarianism

    Occidental Dissent - Dec 3rd 2021 10:30pm EST (Archive)

    It is extremely important for the future of democracy that people like John Eastman be brought to justice. At a minimum, it’s critical to shun him professionally. Same for Giuliani et al. If you’re in a bar association with an insurrectionist, please work for disbarment. https://t.co/VkgHI8i16M — Jonathan Alter (@jonathanalter) December 3, 2021 Here are […]

  • General Michael Hayden: My Worry For America

    Occidental Dissent - Dec 3rd 2021 12:01pm EST (Archive)

    General Michael Hayden is worried about balkanization. The Cipher Brief: “OPINION — I was a Brigadier General 30 years ago, assigned in Europe as the head of intelligence.  Most of the time I was looking at the Balkans because there was a war going on. Yugoslavia lasted for 72 years and then it was gone; […]

  • Christian Picciolini Gives Up On His DeRad Grift

    Occidental Dissent - Dec 2nd 2021 11:54am EST (Archive)

    I would give up too. If I were doing this and for every 1 White Nationalist who was deradicalized and converted to woke progressivism another 10,000 normies in small towns and rural areas was alienated and radicalized by Wokeism, I would do the math and see that I was losing the argument. Salon: “I’ve been […]

  • Ibram X. Kendi: The Mantra of White Supremacy

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 30th 2021 1:40pm EST (Archive)

    Ibram X. Kendi, the high priest of Wokeism, has taken to the pages of The Atlantic to confirm what I have long been saying about him on this website: “Here’s the way this works: 1.) we create potent critiques, memes, caricatures and narratives on small websites like this one, 2.) we stay out of the […]

  • Thomas Jefferson Statue Removed From New York City Hall After 187 Years

    Occidental Dissent - Nov 23rd 2021 9:28am EST (Archive)

    Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum are victims. They should be alive today. The only reason they’re not is because a violent, dangerous man chose to take a gun across state lines and start shooting people. To call this a miscarriage of justice is an understatement. https://t.co/TwaI2ghgM5 — Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) November 19, 2021 […]
