The Crest of the Peacock (1991) has a beautiful title and an ugly purpose. The book takes that title from a line in an ancient Sanskrit text: “Like the crest of a peacock, like the gem on the head of a snake, so is mathematics at the head of all knowledge.” (p. v) So much... Read More
the-take-no-nonsense-afghan-ahmad-otak-and-his-two-white-victims
Here’s some good news about Afghanistan. If you drew up a “Toxic Top Ten” of the worst possible places to receive migrants from, Afghanistan wouldn’t be #1. I think that honour would go to Somalia. Now some bad news about Afghanistan. It could be well #2 or #3 in the Toxic Ten. It’s #2 for... Read More
One reliable sign of leftism in action is that it most harms those whom it claims to care about most. For example, the Labour party in Britain proclaims its concern for the working-class in its very name. But Labour has been attacking the working-class with mass migration and anti-racism for decades. When working-class Whites called... Read More
Leftist lies about the human brain: an anti-racist propaganda poster
“Shocked, confused, and frankly horrified!” As Steve Sailer has reported, that’s how an anti-racist radiologist called Luke Oakden-Rayner sums up the reaction of himself and other medical researchers to a dark, dangerous, and deeply disturbing discovery in artificial intelligence (AI). What have they found? That AI has what Oakden-Rayner calls the “worst superpower.” It’s guilty... Read More
Joe Slovo with Nelson Mandela
Steven Pinker (born 1954) is the Jewish academic whose scientific acumen enabled him to dismiss Kevin MacDonald’s books without taking the trouble to read them. Well, he got that wrong, and he got something else wrong, as I saw when I read an anodyne discussion between him and Richard Dawkins from 2008. According to Pinker,... Read More
It’s one of the great truths of human existence: Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens – “With stupidity the Gods themselves battle in vain.” So said the great German writer Schiller (1759–1805) more than two hundred years ago. A lot has changed since then, but not the power of stupidity in human affairs. You... Read More
If I could’ve offered Kurt Cobain of Nirvana a word of advice before he got himself a Jewish girlfriend in the shape of Courtney Love, it would of course have been: “Don’t!” He was probably doomed anyway, but he might have lasted longer and been much happier without her. Cobain was a fragile soul; Love... Read More
When I move into a new home, two things go up immediately on the wall. The first is my gold-framed portrait of Richard Wagner. The second is my map of the Universe. One way or another, everything’s there, from the left thumb of the Pope to the whole of the Andromeda Galaxy, from the follicle... Read More
How Leftists Don’t Really Care About Sexual Violence, Misogyny and Femicide
Like most human things, the Guardian is at its funniest when it doesn’t mean to be. For example, it’s currently celebrating its bicentenary under this slogan: “200 years of chasing the truth.” Which is a very good joke. Maybe the paper was honest in its early days, but it has spent most of the last... Read More
Gender-fluid Damarra Atkins worships at a mural of George Floyd in George Floyd Square, Minneapolis
It’s a perfect image for our insane and ugly age: an overweight gender-fluid Black woman in a Wu-Flu mask pressing her head in worship against a giant mural of George Floyd at the site of his martyrdom in Minneapolis. The martyr is ugly, the mural is ugly and the mourner is ugly: In its ugliness,... Read More
Mark Steyn, the Pied Piper of Zionism (“porky pie” is Cockney rhyming slang for “lie”)
A Master-Class in Mendacity on behalf of Zionism and the ADL
Mark Steyn is a highly intelligent man and an excellent, erudite writer. I admire (and envy) his ability to write so much so fast and so entertainingly. Unfortunately, Steyn is also a liar and fraud. And I can prove that very easily. Here goes. As Kevin MacDonald set out in two recent articles at the... Read More
Whitey in the Woodpile: The eleven members of the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities
The Sacred Central Principle of Modern Western Politics and Culture
Two views on non-Whites are permitted in the modern West. The first view is leftist and rules the media, academia, law, education, government bureaucracy, big business, sports and all leftist parties. It states: “Non-Whites are a limitless blessing and whites are cruelly oppressing them.” The second view is cuckservative and states: “Non-Whites are a limitless... Read More
As Francis Carr-Begbie pointed out long ago at the Occidental Observer, one cultural phenomenon is guaranteed to cause bafflement among liberals, libertarians and cuckservatives. It is the extraordinary spectacle of Muslims behaving like Muslims. Again and again members of Britain’s intellectual elite have been disturbed and dismayed to learn that Muslims don’t behave like Buddhists,... Read More

How Meghan Markle Symbolizes Black Hatred of White Civilization
Leftism is built on lies. I know that. I’ve seen countless examples of it. But even I was surprised by the Guardian’s dishonesty in February 2021. It was reporting on “rising violence against Asian communities in the US” and, of course, it was refusing to admit that Blacks were responsible. Well, I was ready for... Read More

Blasphemous Borrowings and the Jewish Roots of Translunacy
“History never repeats, but it does rhyme.” It’s a good line (though Mark Twain probably never said it). I see history rhyming in modern leftist ideology, which seems to contain blasphemous corruptions of three central Catholic doctrines: miraculous birth, immaculate conception and transubstantiation. Leftists mock and reject these doctrines in their original Christian form, but... Read More
It’s one of the most interesting, enlightening and eye-opening books I’ve ever read: Simon Winchester’s Exactly: How Precision Engineers Created the Modern World (2018). Winchester tells a story of astonishing ingenuity, intelligence and effort from the steam-engine (44) to the “extreme ultraviolet” laser (296). And it’s almost exclusively a story of stale pale males—of White... Read More

Jewish Control, Zionist Subversion and the “Contradictions” of Anti-Semitism
Parasite’s grin: Bibi Netanyahu greets Jonathan Pollard, the Jewish spy who did huge harm to his “own nation” of America on behalf of Israel Like all decent people, I stand unshakably with the powerless Jewish community against the vile scourge of anti-Semitism and anti-Jewish racism. And in order to better defend cowering Jews against their... Read More
The pernicious punim of Priti Patel, high-T fem-pol
Shakespeare got it wrong. “There’s no art to find the mind’s construction in the face,” says King Duncan in Macbeth (c. 1606), meaning that psychology can’t be read from physiognomy. But Shakespeare never saw Priti Patel, the British-born Indian Hindu who currently serves as Home Secretary. When you look at Patel, do you see gentleness,... Read More

The newly published report on anti-Semitism in the British Labour party couldn’t be more damning. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) spoke to dozens of witnesses as it investigated how Labour had repeatedly and remorselessly betrayed Britain’s Jewish community. Once the party had been their natural home; now it had become their sworn enemy.... Read More
Ethnic enrichment in London
As sites like the Occidental Observer, VDARE and American Renaissance constantly describe, minority-worship is “madness-inducing.” Minority-worship inverts reality, morality and logic, insisting that Whites abase themselves and trash their societies in a vain attempt to appease the ever-growing rancour, resentment and envy of our racial enemies. All-suffering saintliness Blacks, for example, are invariably the most... Read More
Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators Ronan Farrow Fleet paperback 2020 Ideas always sound classier in French: Lisez le blanc, lisez ce que je n’ai pas écrit et ce qui y est pourtant – “Read the white, read what I did not write and what is there nonetheless.” That was...

“The most merciful thing in the world,” said H.P. Lovecraft, “is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.” But what’s the most risible thing in the world? That’s the inability of the Guardian to correlate all its contents. Here, for example, the Guardian exposes the racist stereotyping of “black, Asian and... Read More
If you’re looking for a truly powerful pleasure-drug, then forget heroin, cocaine or crystal meth. They’re crude, fast-fading and unreliable. No, for a real rush that’s guaranteed not to fade or falter, you need what Black Lives Matter (BLM) and their allies are on — the three most powerful pleasure-drugs known to humanity. History’s greatest... Read More
How Tiny Genetic Differences Can Have Huge Cultural Consequences
Which single invention has contributed most to our understanding of reality? Appropriately enough, it’s easy to overlook one of the best candidates: the microscope. It revealed whole new worlds existing not merely under our eyes, but actually within our eyes and every other organ of the body. The microscope taught humanity that the minute can... Read More
andrew-sabiskyoo
“Ah, the rare happiness of times when you can think and speak as you please!” So said the great Roman historian Tacitus and two thousand years later his words still ring true. Just ask the crime-thinker Andrew Sabisky, who has resigned as an adviser to the British government after what the Guardian described as “fierce... Read More

Do parallel universes exist where history has taken an entirely different course? It’s been a big unanswered question in physics and philosophy for a long time, but I’ve started to wonder whether the Canadian neo-conservative Mark Steyn holds the key. His writing appears in this universe, but he himself appears to be living some or... Read More
Suppose a hungry donkey was placed exactly midway between two identical piles of hay. Could it choose one of the piles to eat or would it hesitate, growing ever weaker, until it starved to death? This was the question posed in the medieval problem of Buridan’s ass. “And so on…” It might seem an esoteric... Read More
noble Black lawyer prosecutes an evil White sex-beast, who receives 33 life-sentences for his cowardly and despicable crimes against eleven innocent women and children. What a potent and effective way to smash the vile racist stereotype that Blacks are prone to violence and rape! And what a heart-warming symbol of Brave New Britain, where non-Whites... Read More
The Goy Grovel: Sajid Javid, Priti Patel and Boris Johnson perform at CFI
Ehud Sheleg. Who is he? CFI. What is that? The vast majority of people in Brave New Britain still don’t have a clue, because the mainstream media completely ignored these very interesting and important questions during the just-ended general election. The biggest lobbying group in British politics But this is the Occidental Observer, the Home... Read More
“Gobsmacked” is a good English word that’s gaining ground in America, I’ve read. If it’s not familiar to you, it means “very surprised or otherwise affected,” like someone who has been unexpectedly smacked in the gob, or mouth. I’ve recently been gobsmacked not once but twice by a Scottish journalist called Stephen Daisley. Corbyn’s a... Read More

Higher Status in the Leftist Grievance Hierarchy Means You Can Invade Others’ Borders
Sex and race are, to the left, mere social constructs, abstract systems of delusion and injustice that can be overturned by human will and social engineering. It follows, then, that leftists will support and celebrate men who reject the social construct of sex and claim to be women. And leftists do support and celebrate such... Read More
Raising the rainbow at the NSA (above) and GCHQ (below)
The mark of a true prophet isn’t perfect accuracy, but powerful ideas. It’s impossible to foresee the future in every detail, but a true prophet should give us the ideas that explain what he doesn’t foresee. For example, in one way George Orwell got the future completely wrong in Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). In his totalitarian... Read More

How Dumb Ideas about Race Flourish on the Left
An ant is an amazing creature, a marvel of miniaturization and compressed complexity. With only a tiny brain, it absorbs and interprets a flood of data from its myriad sense-organs, navigating a complex and constantly changing world, co-operating and communicating with its nest-mates, collaborating in prodigies of architecture, engineering and logistics. No human robot can... Read More
Boris Johnson gets his priorities right
Boris Johnson, Friends of Israel and the Second Coming of Cummings
Why aren’t the British Left celebrating? The “one-man melting-pot” Boris Johnson has become the new prime minister. He has Turkish, Jewish, French and English ancestry. Johnson has appointed two politicians of colour to the most important posts in his cabinet: the Pakistani Muslim Sajid Javid is now chancellor and the Indian Hindu Priti Patel is... Read More
Muslims and Jews in alliance: “Yossi Klein Halevi, left, and Abdullah Antepli are co-directors of the Muslim Leadership Initiative”
Jonathan Sacks is the former Chief Rabbi of Great Britain. Wes Streeting is a homosexual Labour MP and vice-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group against Antisemitism. You wouldn’t expect either of these two men to offer aid and comfort to us hate-filled haters at the Occidental Observer. The process began with Jews But they have... Read More

How PC and Minority-Worship Cripple the Intellect
One of the cleverest and strangest books I’ve ever read is Edwin Abbott Abbott’s Flatland, a Victorian fantasy first published in 1884. It’s about what happens when two worlds collide. One is our own three-dimensional world. The other is a literally two-dimensional world called Flatland, where there are only two dimensions to move in: north-south... Read More
roches-revenge-sinister-minister-barbara-roche
“Two Jews, three opinions.” It’s a very common saying, but it’s also a very dishonest one. Jews and their gentile allies use it to suggest that Jews are on all sides of every political argument, so they don’t have a decisive influence one way or another. But on some matters there’s an overwhelming consensus among... Read More
If you want to understand the hate-hoax perpetrated by the gay “Black-Jewish actor” Jussie Smollett one freezing Chicago night in late January 2019, it helps to go back to a book published twelve years before and thousands of miles away in Britain: Multiculturalism promotes segregation, stifles free speech and threatens liberal democracy, Britain’s top Jewish...

Liverpool, Labour and Lucky Luciana Berger
The English port of Liverpool is famous for three things: soccer, music and violence. Historically it falls within the boundaries of Lancashire, but culturally it has never fitted there. It’s always been too self-assertive and idiosyncratic, so much its own place that its inhabitants go by two names. Formally, they’re Liverpudlians; informally, they’re Scousers. Militant... Read More
Auschwitz, desecrated in March 2018
It’s Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) as I write, so here’s an interesting question: Did you hear about the hate-criminal who was caught urinating on a monument at Auschwitz? Probably you didn’t, because the story wasn’t suitable for anti-White, anti-European, anti-Christian propaganda. Quite the opposite. The hate-criminal in question was Jewish, a “19-year-old Israeli” called “Zeev... Read More
Who remembers Isaiah Young-Sam? His family and friends certainly do, but Britain’s liberal elite certainly don’t. That’s puzzling, because he was a young Black man murdered at the age of 23 in a particularly shocking way: “stabbed through the heart as he fled a baying gang wielding chains, baseball bats and knives, who hunted him...

“We Must Be Eternally Vigilant against Racism”
As Mark Twain probably never said: “History doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme.” Old patterns return in new forms, ancient errors and superstitions slide back into unsuspecting modern minds. It’s very unwise for liberals in 2018 to think themselves superior to the past, because in some ways they’re far inferior. If you believe in the... Read More
A Spectre is haunting the Unz Review — the spectre of a highly ethnocentric Jewish commenter called Tyrion 2. He possesses all of Kevin MacDonald’s “background traits for Jewish activism,” from ethnocentrism and intelligence to aggressiveness and psychological intensity. With shameless disregard for facts and logic, he assails any criticism of Jews at the Unz... Read More
Censorship and Silence in the Virtue-Signalling Scottish Police State
Race isn’t a social construct, but here’s something that is: the so-called United Kingdom. In fact, it’s precisely because race exists that the U.K. is a construct rather than a nation. The native Whites of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales are genetically distinct, which is why those regions are all genuine nations (ultimately from Latin... Read More
Avital Ronell and the Corruption of Western Academia
In Homage to Catalonia (1938), his memoir of the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell describes how his wife was rudely woken by a police-raid on the hotel room she was occupying in Barcelona: The police conducted this search “in the recognized OGPU [then the Russian communist secret-police] or Gestapo style … for nearly two hours,”...

Who is the biggest hate-criminal in the world? There’s only one contender and you may be shocked to learn that it’s a female. Worse still, that female is as immortal as she is immoral. For millennia, she’s been hating on humanity, discriminating between different groups and imposing inequality, preventing women from matching the intellectual, cultural... Read More
A Review of Ben Cobley’s The Tribe
The Tribe: The Liberal-Left and the System of Diversity Ben Cobley Imprint Academic 2018 I’m sure that Ben Cobley will be displeased to see a positive review of his book The Tribe at a fully certified hate-site like the Occidental Observer. But I think that it’s an important book and that its themes chime perfectly... Read More
Is “feminist intellect” an oxymoron? Is Vagynocracy — the vagina-worshipping, gynaecocratic cult of feminism — an intellectual and ethical void? Countless feminists certainly seem determined to prove so. I’m not a fan of the American judge Brett Kavanaugh and I’m suspending judgment about whether his appointment to the Supreme Court will be a Good Thing.... Read More
Jonathan Sacks is given an award by the war-criminal Tony Blair
Jeremy Corbyn has a beard. So has Jonathan Sacks. But this shared philopogony hasn’t brought the two men closer together. Sacks is the former Chief Rabbi of Britain and, to be fair, I think we be better off if more Jews were like him. He doesn’t seem to hate Whites and the Christian religion in... Read More
More on the “Stain and Shame” of Labour Anti-Semitism
Everything is connected, but some things are more connected than others. Let’s start with Margaret Hodge, the arrogant Jewish Labour MP whose criticism of Jeremy Corbyn and support for censorship I discussed in “Labour’s Gas-Chamber Blues.” After Hodge was threatened with disciplinary action for what she said about Corbyn, her high-powered lawyers wrote a letter...
