• My Correspondents Say Chinese Darien Gap Immivaders Better Than Other Illegals. I Say: SO WHAT?

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 24th 2023 10:49am EDT

    Patrick Cleburne In the various correspondence I have received after posting THEY’RE COMING! One Billion-Plus Chinese “Economic Migrants” Now Know About The Darien Gap, a recurrent theme has been that the Chinese will make far better neighbors than most of the other newcomers. (The Darien Gap is between Colombia and Panama, and economic ”migrants” use it as […]

  • Anarcho-Tyranny Rules America

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 21st 2023 2:09pm EDT

    Tou Thao became a Minneapolis police officer because he wanted to serve his community. And now this brave, conscientious, and honorable man is facing almost five years in prison for doing just that. Why? Because he was on duty at the scene of George Floyd’s death, and he worked to calm and hold back a […]

  • My Party: The Stupid Party!   

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 21st 2023 10:48am EDT

       House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is being pressured by idiots like Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert to impeach Biden for his son Hunter’s sleazy foreign dealings — and thus decimate the reelection chances of every other Republican in Congress. But MJT and Boebert will have tremendous fun doing it and get lots of […]

  • Black people and morality

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 19th 2023 10:26am EDT

    Images of Black people are pressed on us so insistently these days, usually as models of some kind, that it is natural to ask just how admirable Black people are. For example, are they especially moral? Are they especially industrious, especially respectful of other people’s property, especially reliable, especially good to children, especially merciful, especially […]

  • Malik’s Moral Compass: A Free-Speech-Loving Indian Ethicist Ignores Brutal Censorship-by-Murder

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 17th 2023 8:41am EDT

    Kenan Malik is a British-based Indian intellectual who has written a “remarkable and groundbreaking book” called The Quest for a Moral Compass (2015). He claims to be passionately in favor of free speech and secularism, and just as passionately opposed to censorship and authoritarianism. Alas, he’s lying. And it’s very easy to prove that. Just […]

  • Break the Law Again, You’ll Get TWO Desserts!

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 15th 2023 3:59am EDT

    Days after Mayor Eric Adams said the migrant crisis was going to “destroy” New York City, we memorialized the last time immigrants tried to destroy it: The 9/11 attack. At least that was a one-time body blow.  The city suffered grievously, but survived because, luckily, the immigrants who flew planes into the buildings killed themselves in […]

  • Psychodrama: The Psychosis of Whiteness

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 14th 2023 9:45am EDT

    The Psychosis of Whiteness: Surviving the Insanity of a Racist World Kehinde Andrews Penguin, 2023 Britain has an unfortunate tendency to import the more questionable aspects of American culture, and so it is proving with Critical Race Theory (CRT). Both the literature and the practice have been in the UK for some time and will […]

  • Is There Really a Huge Spike in Anti-Semitism on X?

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 12th 2023 12:36pm EDT

    In Monday’s New York Times, there was an article (“Elon Musk Has Crossed a Line“) by David Austin Walsh who, perhaps surprisingly given his name, is a postdoc in the “Yale Program for the Study of Antisemitism and author of the forthcoming book Taking America Back: The Conservative Movement and the Far Right.” In an […]

  • Meloni’s Betrayal of Italy: Mass Immigration and Naturalization

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 10th 2023 10:52am EDT

    Via Google Translate https://auf1.info/melonis-fluechtlings-politik-verrat-an-italien/ By Daniel Matissek September 9, 2023 Little remains of the election promises of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, who took office as a hardliner in immigration policy: her policies now hardly differ from those of the ruling EU migration lobby. Now 800,000 migrant children are to be naturalized in Italy. Almost […]

  • Why America Has Fallen into Despair: A Very Short History

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 10th 2023 9:48am EDT

    The United States recently became the first medically advanced country with shortening rather than lengthening lifespans.  Princeton University economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton in their 2020 book Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism associate this decline in life span with economic inequality rising to levels not previously recorded. To find a very […]

  • The Lethality of Liberty: How Fanatics for Freedom Help the Cause of Tyranny

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 8th 2023 9:59am EDT

    Marxism belongs with necrophilia, bestiality and listening to Elton John. In a well-ordered world, indulging in any of those things would exclude you from respectable society for life. And would ensure that no-one ever took you seriously in any discussion of politics and morals. Elton John, homosexual purveyor of musical horrors (image from Wikipedia) Alas, […]

  • Couldn’t the Military Industrial Complex Make Its Money in Mexico?

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 7th 2023 12:26pm EDT

    It’s often hard to keep our Mexican atrocities straight, but would you happen to remember the 43 Mexican students in Iguala who disappeared off a bus in September 2014? At the time, there were claims that local police had abducted and killed them at the behest of a drug cartel — hard as it might be to […]

  • Thoughts on love and hate

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 6th 2023 1:38pm EDT

    The last time I saw the word “love” it was in the phrase “Love is love”, which, being meaningless, gave me no idea what it was supposed to be promoting. I thought it must be homosexuality because I’d heard Stephen Fry say the words, which was depressing enough. How could an intelligent man do something […]

  • More on the ADL-Musk Controversy

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 5th 2023 10:28am EDT

    Occidental Dissent has put together a compendium of tweets from the #BanTheADL hashtag on X. From today’s article in JTA: Elon Musk threatened to sue the Anti-Defamation League for up to $22 billion on Monday as he joined a growing number of white supremacists and trolls in posting invective about the group. The legal threat of […]

  • Rolling Stone on #BanTheAdl

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 4th 2023 11:25am EDT

    Yesterday, Henrik and I had a discussion on the #BanTheADL hashtag which has become a phenomenon on X. Now the Rolling Stone tries to clean up the mess with a predictably leftist take: “Elon Musk Wades Deeper into Antisemitic Propaganda.” I am seriously starting to wonder why I was banned from X a few months […]

Interesting stuff covered includes ADL censorship and the #bantheADL hashtag on X (which had over 100K posts as of yesterday; Christopher Rufo on race, the Trump indictments, traitorous politicians like Giorgia Meloni who renege on immigration promises despite popular […]

  • The Race for the Atomic Bomb in World War II

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 2nd 2023 9:44am EDT

    We generally think that major wars are accelerators of technical progress, and the Second World War is often cited in this respect. But what happens if a major technological breakthrough that everyone knows, hopes or fears is imminent, a breakthrough that would lead to an absolute weapon capable of completely overturning the geopolitical balances in […]

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 2nd 2023 9:43am EDT

    On pense généralement que les guerres d’importance sont des accélérateurs de progrès techniques, la Seconde Guerre mondiale est justement très souvent citée à ce titre, mais qu’arrive-t-il si une percée technologique majeure que tout le monde sait, espère ou craint imminente se profile, une percée qui déboucherait sur une arme absolue capable de renverser complètement […]

  • Apparently, Not All Black Lives Matter

    The Occidental Observer - Sep 1st 2023 9:20am EDT

    Let’s be honest: As far as the media are concerned, most Black lives don’t matter. Only in the tiny, infinitesimally small percentage of cases when a Black person is killed by a White guy do the media sit up and take notice. Thus, while there was blanket coverage of a White racist 21-year-old (mentally ill, […]

  • Black people and begging

    The Occidental Observer - Aug 31st 2023 9:48am EDT

    In 1843 an explorer named Sir William Harris wrote that all classes of Africans were most pertinacious beggars.[1] How true was this and how true is it of Black people today? Sir William Harris’s statement was well corroborated in the 19th century. Reporting on his time in north-east Africa, a German missionary described Africans as […]

  •  Thoughts Prompted by “Rich Men from Richmond”: Including One About Celebration

    The Occidental Observer - Aug 29th 2023 9:58am EDT

    I’ve been especially taken by the “Rich Men North of Richmond” phenomenon that’s so big in the news these days (it’s late August of ‘23).  As you know—no need for a lot of exposition here—it’s a song by a heretofore unknown singer/songwriter who goes by the name of Oliver Anthony.  As The New York Times […]
