The source of Jewish success

Brett “the bedbug” Stephens put out an article about Jewish IQ and success, The Secrets of Jewish Genius: It’s not about having higher I.Q.s. I think in some regards, supposed Jewish intellectual and professional dominance is overstated. I have read many science papers in fields…

The evolution of the right

’80s and ’90s-era conservatism was dominated by foreign policy and culture-war issues. For example, Dan Quayle in 1992 criticized the recording industry for promoting rap music that glorified violence against police officers. The 1992 Los Angeles riots could be considered a literal culture war. And…

The smart-left

A not-so-great debate: These Democrats are killing me I keep seeing this trend of the intellectual/smart-left criticizing the 2020 democratic candidates, such as article above. I don’t remember it being this bad in 2016 or 2008, but either this year the candidates are exceptionally bad…

Why the Left Hates Trump so Strongly

Bill Ram Z Paul Gates put out this interesting video about why the left hates Trump, blaming Trump’s whiteness and his popularity among whites: I more or less agree with this. In spite of the insistence by dems of Trump’s supposed ‘white nationalist’ loyalties, if…

The popularity of Slavoj Žižek, explained

Slavoj Žižek: “Why I Am Still A Communist”. The 2019 Holberg Debate with Slavoj Žižek & Tyler Cowen Dr. Žižek holds the distinction of being one of the few far-leftists who isn’t down-voted and pilloried to oblivion in the YouTube comments. I’m trying to figure…

Nick is not gonna debate you Vox

I told you he’s not that smart> This is pretty funny. Nick Fuentes keeps rebuking Vox Day’s invitation to debate him. Vox wants to debate Nick to prove how much intellectually superior he is, and or to pin Nick between a rock and hard place…
