  • More Noticing: Dave Chappelle on SNL

    The Occidental Observer - Nov 14th 2022 12:45pm EST (Archive)

    And the ADL is pissed. We shouldn’t expect @DaveChappelle to serve as society’s moral compass, but disturbing to see @nbcsnl not just normalize but popularize #antisemitism. Why are Jewish sensitivities denied or diminished at almost every turn? Why does our trauma trigger applause? — Jonathan Greenblatt (@JGreenblattADL) November 13, 2022

  • Oppressed Jew Is Watching You: What Orwell Got Wrong in his Dystopian Satire Nineteen Eighty-Four

    The Occidental Observer - Nov 14th 2022 11:17am EST (Archive)

    When it was first published in 1949, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four was a dystopian satire aimed at the left. In 2022, the novel seems to have become an instruction manual used by the left. For example, in Orwell’s satire the worst of all offences is thoughtcrime, the denial of official ideology and rebellion against the […]

  • A Depressing Election

    The Occidental Observer - Nov 12th 2022 1:50pm EST (Archive)

    I am not in the least bit susceptible to depression, but I have to admit that as Tuesday night wore on, I found I was getting depressed. And on Wednesday I was really down. If you watch conservative media, you were expecting a red wave, and there was even talk of a paradigm shift as […]

  • Is Enrique Krauze an honest historian?

    The Occidental Observer - Nov 10th 2022 12:45pm EST (Archive)

    Four years ago I wrote an article for The Occidental Observer about the Jewish Mexican Enrique Krauze and his hatred for Donald Trump and White Protestant America. Krauze has lived in Mexico City since his childhood and is one of the most respected intellectuals in the Spanish-speaking world. In 2003 the Spanish government decorated him […]

  • Playing to the stereotype

    In Search of Anti-Semitism William F. Buckley Continuum, 1992 Introduction A conservative who doesn’t care to fight against the Left is useless. He might as well be a leftist himself, because, over time he becomes more a symbol of capitulation than a leading light of the Right. As a twentieth-century conservative icon, pundit, and National […]
