The establishment media are scrambling these days. Not only are they floundering financially as the internet destroys their business model, they are also losing their century-long control over the narratives that people use to interpret the world. This is the true power of media – to frame the perceptions that the people of a nation use to determine reality. It is the power to direct the herd, to write the history of the future beforehand and determine the boundaries of the Overton Window of socially acceptable speech, and therefore thought.
In democratic political systems, this might be the greatest power of all.… Read the rest

It is no surprise that Berkeley, California has become the scene of another significant battle in the culture war which has erupted across America in recent months. Berkeley is a bastion of the American neo-Marxist left and is at the heart of their 60’s mythology. Last weekend though, for the first time in living memory, the totalitarian American left was defeated on their home turf.
The motley assortment of anti-leftists who came to Berkeley to attend a free speech event organized by independent journalist Lauren Southern were able to push Antifa back despite the actions of the Berkeley Police Department.… Read the rest

According to Facebook, I’m a purveyor of nudity on social media. Thankfully my wife hasn’t found out. Wouldn’t make for a great Easter long weekend.
The post in question was an article I shared from altright.com dealing with the mainstream media’s silence about Ebba Akerlund, an 11-year-old victim of the recent Stockholm Islamic attack (the one with the truck in the market, if you can’t keep up). The image in question is this one.
When I look at that image, I’m not offended by ‘nudity’. Given that public censorship of nudity is usually related to sexualisation, I find such an accusation by Facebook to be deeply, deeply revolting.… Read the rest

Identity politics is the new black these days it seems. You can’t turn sideways without being confronted by another manifestation of it. You open up the Sydney Morning Herald to check in on the propaganda, and Clementine Ford is screeching at you about how she fears for her safety constantly. In Melbourne, probably one of the safest cities in the world for women. Have you seen Clementine Ford? Does Melbourne not have street lights? It’s all very irrational.
Every Monday night on Q&A the cultural Marxist inquisitors of the cult of diversity come together to find more unconquered areas of white male supremacy to colonise.… Read the rest

Fakery has been everywhere in the news in 2017. From the increasingly desperate and still unproven accusations by the establishment media that President Trump is a Manchurian candidate, to the alarming and verifiable evidence that senior Democrats have close financial links to foreign powers, everyday Americans are unsure what is real and what is not at the moment. Central to this surreal political atmosphere is the loss of faith by the American people in the establishment media, or what many are now calling the real ‘fake news’.
Just as everyday Americans are now seeing through the fake news that is put forth by the media wing of the Democrat establishment, we are also now aware of the fakery at the heart of the Democratic Party itself.… Read the rest

Apparently Australia has a ‘multicultural statement’ put forth via proclamation by the Prime Minister. Did you know? I didn’t. Is this something all countries have signed up for? I doubt it. Do Afghanistan or Belarus or Kazakhstan or Zimbabwe have such a thing? If no, why not? Why are we always so special, Prime Minister? Why are they a distinct people with a distinct biological, cultural and ethnic identity and we are not?
What it seems to really mean is that, every once in a while, the top puppet parliamentarian gets to play with the wording of what defines your, and my, national identity.… Read the rest
