Imagine a World Without VDARE

[Originally published on April 16, 2009.]

Imagine a typical day—I’m addressing patriots here. You get a few minutes, and start typing "V-D-..." on your computer screen, until your pc remembers the rest of the URL, and voila … nothing.

You want to get a quick roundup on stories about illegal immigration, immigrant mass murder syndrome, non-immigrant visa (e.g., H1-B) abuse, raceless criminals/raceless victims, SPLC hoaxes and scandals, Obamanomics, the minority mortgage meltdown (e.g., updates on the racial and ethnic breakdown of subprime mortgage foreclosures), human bidoversity, the Wars on Easter/Thanksgiving/Christmas, i.e., the War on America, the multicultural abuse of women, immigrant crime and media malpractice … but you can’t, because there is no more

If you’re like most people, you don’t have time to scour the ends of the Web for those stories. That’s what VDARE is for.

Even if you’re a writer, like me, who punches out story after story on the National Question—i.e., will the United States of America, that light unto the nations, endure—you don’t have time to find the stories here and there. That would take all day, and then you’d have no time left for writing.

Let’s say you’re an immigration activist—oh, how I hate the word "activist," but there are people who are doing good things that it describes best, as opposed to those who are engineering race hoaxes and conspiring to extort money from whites—and you need the most up-to-date, vetted, reliable information and talking points to fight the newest amnesty outrage plot. You’re screwed.

VDARE is invaluable, because its top-flight contributors, including its own in-house fact-checker, James Fulford (neither the New York Times nor any other Webzine or blog that I am aware of has its own fact-checker), spend tens of thousands of man-hours annually researching and writing the work that it publishes. But those contributors have to be paid. And I’m proud to be one of them.

Is it possible to fight immigration anarchy without VDARE? Perhaps, but it would be much more difficult, and much less effective. Can the patriotic immigration reform movement successfully beat back “Obama’s” current plan for a massive amnesty of over 22 million illegal immigrants this year without VDARE? No.

VDARE founder Peter Brimelow has not posted any new articles for the past two days, and is in danger of having to shut down the Web site altogether, due to a lack of funds.

“Well, even if Peter does shut down the Web site, there’s still the archives.”

Wrong. The archives exist in cyberspace, only so long as the Web site is up and paid for. They take up bandwidth, just like the Webzine and the blog, and bandwidth is not free.

“Yeah, but Google caches are forever!”

Wrong again. The notion that Google caches last forever in cyberspace is an oft-repeated myth. Usually, when a Web site goes down, its cached pages remain accessible on Google for a few weeks and then, poof, gone forever! Sometimes, the cached pages disappear much quicker.

While you’re imagining life without VDARE, imagine a life in which Spanish has been elevated to the official language of the United States.

Mind you, I find Spanish, when spoken properly, a lovely language. But there are already 22 countries in which Spanish is the primary language; there’s no need for any more. (Puerto Rico is not a separate country!)

Imagine a country, in which whites and Asians must pay “reparations” in perpetuity to blacks and Hispanics; a country, in which people from “non-protected” groups with an IQ of 140 are lucky to get work digging ditches, while people from “protected” groups with IQs of 100 are made professors of engineering and physics; a country, in which Moslems have imposed Sharia law on the courts; and a country which is in a state of permanent racial, ethnic, and religious warfare, with the warring parties differing, depending on the region in question. (I mean, much worse warfare than presently exists in America!) Think of places like Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and India.

If you want to save America, you have to save VDARE.

Thank You, Peter! Brimelow Puts in Kind Word for Young Freelancer

By Nicholas Stix

[This appeal first appeared on December 13, 2008.]

Peter Brimelow just posted the following words at the top of’s temporary home page, for its ongoing fundraising drive:

Last night, I was attacked by Keith Olbermann on his MSNBC TV show Countdown for starting the War Against Christmas on VDARE.COM and thereby corrupting Bill O'Reilly! (We respond on our blog). Of course, we think Olbermann is a fool. But with the Main Stream Media and the political Establishment, there's no doubt his smears are effective. They don't deter us, but I worry for our younger writers, with careers to make, and families to feed.

Writing for VDARE.COM is a risk - but it's the only place where the truth about the immigration disaster and the political correctness plague can be told. PLEASE help us obviate Olbermann! Scroll down to the bottom of the page and DONATE before entering the site for tonight's postings.

Get it? “Our younger writers.” He’s got to be referring to me! VDARE can’t have anyone younger than me writing for it.

How old am I, you ask? I’ll give you the same answer I give The Boss, whenever she asks: 21. And if she complains, I just say, “Prove otherwise!” (And next year, I plan on turning 21 … again!)

Since I have yet to win a Pulitzer or the Nobel Peace Prize, or get written up in Time magazine, what’s the point of aging?)

Why is it so important that you support VDARE? Glad you asked. Peter pays me to write for him. The more money you give him, the more can pay me. Thus, if you think my work is worth supporting, please give generously. And if you think my work isn’t worth supporting, please give generously. (Well, what did you expect me to say?)

That may sound like a selfish rationale, but if you want VDARE to continue to be the finest political site on the Web, Peter has to be able to continue to pay writers.

I can see someone saying, “What’s the big deal? You write, he pays. That’s the way all writing works.”

Not exactly. Although the Internet has proved to be the greatest technology ever invented, as far as writers being able to publish and promote their work, that very same function (flooding the market) has caused it to be the worst thing that ever happened to the economics of writing. Since there is an unlimited supply of writers (i.e., no scarcity), there is total downward pressure on the price for freelance work. No one has to pay anything, in order to get copy to place between the ads on his Website. Thus, only about 0.1 percent of Web sites actually pay for work, and they pay badly.

How badly? In 2001, I wrote a 1216-word essay on legendary journalist-satirist George S. Schuyler for National Review Online, that in the meantime has probably been read by over 100,000 people. My fee: The grand sum of $50, courtesy of the late neoconservative, William F. Buckley Jr. (not that WFB knew me from Adam).

I made maybe $2 an hour for that job. What with a wife and infant, not to mention having to pay the electric company and my ISP just to use my pc, the fee didn’t stretch very far.

Back in 1999, I had published an essay in the fat Christmas issue of the profitable, neocon freebie, The NYPress, for which I received no byline, but for which then editor-publisher Russ Smith (aka Mugger) paid me the princely sum of $16.67. Fortunately for me, The Boss was three months away from giving birth to the Boss’s Boss (forgive me, Harry), so we were able to live it up.

In order for my family to subsist in New York City back then, I would have had to sell at least 2,000 NYPress columns per year.

Back in the early 1990s, I had occasionally freelanced for the daily, New York Newsday, which gave me a byline, and once even put my picture inside of Page One, with a flattering promo for my op-ed piece inside. (I wasn’t crazy about the picture part; how can a journalist buzz around town and do his job, if people are id’ing him on the street? A journalist is supposed to observe, not be observed. And if you really do your job, those people may be hostiles.) And they paid “a buck-fifty” ($150) per piece. The only problem was that the editors somehow “forgot” to pay me for my third piece, and I ended up having to sue them in Small Claims Court, in order to get my fee.

Newsday went belly up in 1995, after only ten years in business and $100 million in losses (est. 170 million 2008 dollars). I don’t know how the outfit went broke, but it sure as hell wasn’t from overpaying freelancers.

Although today’s news media are a multibillion-dollar business, quality journalists are few and far between. I know of only a handful of excellent journalists who are able to support themselves through writing, as opposed to the tens of thousands of worthless, lying hacks who do alright.

At least three of the finest journalists I know can only survive by working day jobs in public relations. One of them is always in danger of losing his day job, due to the repercussions from his investigative freelance work, and another one had to give up writing altogether, because leftists had gotten him fired from his day job.

Although Peter has yet to pay me Malcolm Gladwell money—we’ll have to talk about that—he pays me much better than any other cyber-publication, and even better than some newspapers and magazines I worked for, way back when.

So, to make a short story long, please support VDARE!

VDARE on the Amnesty Wars

by Nicholas Stix

[This was originally published on April 21, 2006.]

VDARE has the best, up-to-the minute coverage of the Amnesty Wars at its blog. When Congress is in session, debating amnesty proposals that run from worse to worser (yes, they even defeat the English language, but then, that’s the point!), VDARE is the only place, short of continuously watching C-SPAN, where you’ll get up-to-the-minute coverage. But VDARE costs money.

And so, if you want to financially support VDARE—and of course, you do!—hit this link.

Join Max Blumenthal and Keith Olbermann, in Having a Very VDARE Christmas!

By Nicholas Stix

(Originally published on December 14, 2008.)


Herr Olbermann

Max Blumenthal and Keith Olbermann have done everything in their power, of late, to publicize Granted, Blumenthal’s PR work has consisted of pronouncing a political death sentence against VDARE editor-publisher Peter Brimelow as a “white nationalist,” a code phrase for neo-Nazi, but you know what they say: There's no such thing as bad publicity. (Don’t worry, Peter, more prominent gauleiters than Max Blumenthal call me the same thing, and I’m sure Max’ll eventually get around to me, as well). Blumenthal has variously misrepresented, or plum screwed up in his descriptions of what VDARE contributors like Tom Piatak have written, and Olbermann has been content largely to parrot him, but what do you expect? It’s not like they’re journalists. So, they quote Piatak as saying “Jews,” when he really said, “multiculturalists”? Same difference, right?

Blumenthal is the purported son of former Clinton administration employee, Sidney Blumenthal, then affectionately referred to as “Sid Vicious.” During the 1996 presidential campaign, Sid was stationed at the DNC’s New Yorker Division, from where he would call Bob Dole (Viagra-KS) Campaign HQ, posing as a journalist. The Dole folks would tell Blumenthal things they wouldn’t have told a known Democratic Party operative (no wonder Dole lost the election!). Sid would then immediately call Clinton Re-election HQ, and pass on whatever he had just learned.

(But that’s the least of Sid’s viciousness. Read Michael Isikoff’s note at the bottom of this review of Sid’s apparently unreadable and uninformative, 802-page book, for how Vicious, er, Blumenthal, lied to the media about both the grand jury’s questions and his testimony in the matter of Bill Clinton’s perjury, in order to make himself look good, and to libel Kenneth Starr.)

Max is also employed by the Party, at its Daily Beast Division, another project by Democratic serial magazine killer, Tina Brown, who was busy wrecking the New Yorker Division’s finances, when she and Sid were both there. Like purported father, like purported son.

Although Max looks like a soccer hooligan, I know nothing about his demeanor, or whether he is prone to violence. For all I know, he may well limit his thuggery to his typing.

Keith Olbermann is a retired sportscaster, who is presently employed by the Party’s MSNBC Division. His chief talent resides in having a very loud voice, with which to shout his talking points.

For all that Max and Keith said, in publicizing VDARE, there is, however, one thing that they forgot to say: Please support VDARE!

Diversity is Strength: It’s Also “Suicidal” White Women (Via Lawrence Auster)

Katie Cullen, left; her killer, Iman Ghaefelipour, right.

By Nicholas Stix

Katie Cullen, 35, was an attractive, fair-skinned, slender, strawberry blond or redhead who was a diligent, competent, cardiology nurse who, according to her mother, “saw only goodness in everyone and had a generosity and selflessness that made her special.” Iman Ghaefelipour, 28, was a swarthy, Iranian illegal alien, with no discernible means of support and no discernible virtues. So, in multicultural England, they were a natural match. But when Cullen found that Ghaefelipou was secretly stealing her blind via her bank account, that was enough even for her. She broke up with him, but he talked her out of going to the police, and agreed to pay back the stolen money in installments. For those of us who fail to see “only goodness in everyone,” the rest, unfortunately—and especially unfortunately for Katie Cullen—proceeded according to script.

Cullen found a new boyfriend, and Ghaefelipour, who had been stalking her, attacked him. Ghaefelipour, of course, did not honor his agreement to repay Cullen, but instead used the agreement as a pretext to arrange a meeting at her flat, where he stabbed her 130 times.

Before reading the rest at Auster’s blog, be forewarned: I haven’t even touched on the really gory stuff.

Old, non-vibrant Rule Brittania exacted punishment, but Cool Brittania believes only in punishing law-abiding whites, and so Iman Ghaefelipour was sentenced to “a minimum of 23 years” in prison, at British taxpayers’ expense, but if you believe that sentence, I’ve got a great deal for you on London Bridge. And if current trends persist, Katie Cullen’s illegal alien killer is unlikely to be deported upon his release. Thus, he could potentially murder several more white women, before his criminal career is over—say, when he dies of natural causes in a taxpayer-funded halfway house.

Of Cullen, Auster wrote, aptly, “maybe if she had read the Mail she wouldn't have ended up in the Mail.”

The sentencing judge lectured Katie Cullen’s killer, “There was nothing in her blameless life of public service which could have predicted what happened to her at your hands.”

But there was much in the blameworthy life of Britain’s ruling elites which could have predicted what happened to Katie Cullen at Iman Ghaefelipour’s hands.

Auster also cites the British cases of Amy Leigh Barnes and Katie Piper.

Amy Leigh Barnes and her killer, Ricardo Morrison.

Katie Piper, before and after the acid attack on her.

Katie Piper's boyfriend, Danny Lynch, left, and Stefan Sylvestre, right, who carried out the acid attack on Piper, on Lynch's behalf.

Auster has previously written of the suicidal recklessness which led to the murders of American girls, Imette St. Guillen (raped and murdered by Darryl Littlejohn), Jennifer Moore (allegedly raped and murdered by Draymond Coleman) and Kirsten Brydum (murdered while bicycling in New Orleans’ virtually all-black Ninth Ward).

And then there is the case of Jessie Marie Davis and her unborn child, both of whom Davis’ boyfriend, Bobby Lee Cutts Jr., murdered.

VDARE: America’s Finest Political Webzine Needs Your Support

By Nicholas Stix

This is the December, 2007 version of a fundraising letter that I had first published one year earlier.

(Last spring, I began an elaborate, ambitious call for readers to support, but have yet to finish it. Considering that a few days ago, VDARE founder Peter Brimelow saw fit to quote almost 500 words from that fundraising letter in his current one, I figured that if it’s good enough for Peter, it should be good enough for me, too. The alternative is to continue with the new fundraising letter, which I might not finish until next year. But Peter needs your money now!)

It’s that time of year again. You are bound to be inundated with telephone calls from the “National Police Officers’ Association,” or some such scam, which will claim to be helping out the widows and children of police officers slain in the line of duty, organizations which virtually never contribute one dime to the welfare of police officers or their families. But one organization, which does not seek, via cold-calling or any other method, to fleece the unwary good-hearted, and which, in fact, is indispensable, is VDARE.

Not only is VDARE (those mysterious typos, notwithstanding) the best-written Web site that I know of, it is the indispensable Web site, which has had more of a positive effect than any 200 GOP talking points sites (some of which are edited by would-be political consultants) combined.

VDARE is devoted to the National Question. As in, shall the United States of America endure, and what is necessary to do, in order to ensure that it does? Since presently, the greatest threat to the continued existence of these United States is mass immigration, legal and illegal, immigration is VDARE’s preoccupation.

How important is VDARE? Pat Buchanan’s just released work, State of Emergency, is easily the most important immigration book written since Michelle Malkin’s Invasion, four years ago. (It may be the most important book since VDARE founder Peter Brimelow’s 1995 work, Alien Nation.) The impeccable statistical research Buchanan cites in State of Emergency was provided by statistician Edwin Rubinstein, a regular VDARE columnist. And when the standard-setting report on race in America, The State of White America, appears later this month, it too will have statistical foundations provided by Ed Rubinstein.

But that’s not all, folks.

Steve Sailer, another regular VDARE columnist, may well be the most brilliant intellectual-journalist working in the English language today.

But there’s more. VDARE also showcases work written exclusively for it by columnists Bryanna Bevens, Allan Wall, James Fulford, Joe Guzzardi, Juan Mann, Donald A. Collins, Brenda Walker and Athena Kerry.

A listing of just a few of its exposés (including two from yours truly) follows:

S. 2611 Amnesty/Open Borders/Immigration Acceleration Bill – VDARE helped galvanize opposition that shelved the bill for now, and exposed the Pence Plan by Cong. Mike Pence (R-Indiana), that sought to backdoor amnesty, while claiming to be a “rational middle ground.”

Misrepresenting the Hispanic Vote: Steve Sailer has for several years continually exposed the myths whereby not only the socialist MSM, but their Republican counterparts, not to mention politicians from both major parties have proceeded as if Hispanics’ votes somehow counted for more than whites’ votes.

Naming Open Border Lobby names: VDARE writers have shown how low the OBL will sink, in order to defend the indefensible, such as in Patrick Cleburne’s exposé of Colorado horse farm owner Helen Krieble’s agitations for amnesty, whereby Krieble seeks to depress the wages she has to pay her workers.

VDAWDI: With his VDARE American Worker Displacement Index, Edwin S. Rubenstein has kept a monthly tab on the rise of “immigrant” employment, and concurrent decline in the employment of Americans.

EOIR: In what he should have turned into a book by now, immigration attorney and VDARE columnist Juan Mann has shown how the Executive Office of Immigration Review has undermined the enforcement of immigration law.

America’s Worst Immigration Journalist: VDARE columnist Joe Guzzardi presides over one of the fiercest journalism competitions in existence: determining who, of all the shamelessly dishonest open borders shills, is the worst.

God & Girl at a Catholic University: Athena Kerry’s series showed the decline into multicultural nihilism of one once proudly Catholic institution.

Diversity is Strength! It’s Also … Police Corruption: In 1995, the New York City Police Department hired illegal alien Martin Peters. When Peters came under suspicion in the murder of the mother of his child, and the NYPD showed reticence about promoting him to sergeant, Peters played the race card, and got his promotion. Sgt. Peters is now under indictment for Murder in the Second Degree, Assault in the First Degree, Intimidating a Witness in the Third Degree, Menacing in the Second Degree, three counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Second Degree, defrauding HUD out of $38,724 in rent subsidies, bankruptcy fraud and last, but not least, immigration fraud. [Postscript, 4/25/2010: In September 2006, Martin Peters was convicted of second degree murder, third degree intimidation of a witness and first degree assault, and the following month was sentenced to 43 years to life in prison.]

“Disappearing” Urban Crime: shows the methods of statistical fraud the NYPD employs to make New York “America’s Safest Big City.”

The VDARE Blog: VDARE has one of the best blogs on the Web, with steady contributions from its regular columnists, plus bloggers Patrick Cleburne and Randall Burns.

If you doubt me, try for yourself!

Syndicated columnists: VDARE also runs and archives the columns of Pat Buchanan and Michelle Malkin. So, what’s the big deal about running columns you can read anywhere? The big deal is that nowhere else can you read these columns with the encyclopedic links that VDARE’s editors weave into the text.

Sam Francis: Over the past twenty or so years, Sam Francis was one of America's most important political thinkers, and one of her few honest writers on race. Francis died on February 15, 2005 of complications following heart surgery, at the age of 57. But during his brief stay in this vale of tears, Francis was as prolific as he was insightful. And all of the approximately 400 columns he wrote for VDARE are still available at his VDARE archive, which also contains links to obituaries honoring him, to his work for Chronicles magazine and, and to the newly published collection of some of his work. This archive is a treasure trove.

Donate: Please give to VDARE. If you do so by December 31, you can write your contribution off your 2007 taxes. And tax write-offs aside, giving to VDARE is, in the words of one of my favorite ex-convicts, a good thing.

Estranged National Review Readers: Come Home, to

By Nicholas Stix

(First posted on November 21, 2008; last updated at 4:34 a.m., on Monday, December 1, 2008.)

This year has seen the death of William F. Buckley Jr., his son Christopher’s coming out of the closet as a supporter of the man who calls himself, “Barack Obama,” and the divorce between the younger Buckley and the magazine his father founded. For longtime NR readers, however, both milestones were redundant, since the magazine that for over 50 years was inextricably associated both with the Buckley name and with American conservatism, had long been moribund.

As Peter Brimelow wrote in his Buckley obituary, “William F. Buckley, Jr., RIP—Sort Of,”

Just as the gangsters in The Godfather reassured each other that their bloody clashes were just business, not personal, I’d say that my disagreement with Buckley was fundamentally political, although I do consider his character to have been among the most contemptible I have encountered in public life. However, in Buckley’s case, the political was personal and vice versa. It was his personal failings that ultimately accounted for the four-decade fizzle of his once-brilliant career—and for the fact that, regularly credited with the making of the modern conservative movement, he must also be indicted for its breaking.

Above all, he must also be indicted for the breaking, through out-of-control post-1965 mass immigration, of the nation that some of us thought the conservative movement was sworn to defend….

For the plain fact, politely unmentioned in most Buckley obituaries, is that Buckley and National Review have been complicit in leading the conservative movement, the Republican Party and the country into utter disaster. Conservatives have essentially nothing to show for their moment in power except two completely unexpected colonial wars in the Middle East. And this year's elections are widely expected to be a generational catastrophe.

While NR’s early years may have been a golden age of American conservative writing, the past 11 years, since the first Great Purge, have been a Golden Age of Republican Talking Points.

Even when the magazine’s functionaries argued righteous positions, as in their sudden opposition to the 2006 Bush-McCain-Kennedy illegal alien amnesty attempt (unsuccessfully sold to the American people under the euphemism, “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”), it wasn’t out of conviction or a careful weighing of the facts of mass immigration’s assault on America, but rather a case of political operatives putting their fingers to the wind, and changing direction accordingly, until which time they would again feel safe in helping the Party in its ongoing war on Middle America.

A March 2005 Middle American News article of mine presaged the GOP’s 2008 electoral collapse. I showed how the three most popular Republican Web sites,,, and stifled debate by censoring any writer whose positions were to the right of the Party’s neocon talking points. Note that those Web sites have since lost any ability to galvanize patriots, have squandered the dominance that Republicans and conservatives enjoyed on the Web back in 2000, and have been left in the dust by socialist-communist-whatever sites such as the Huffington Post and Daily Kos.

And since the collapse, the neocons are calling for more of the same leftism that gave the government away to the socialists, communists, and ethnic supremacists!

On November 10, in “Darkness at Dusk,” the New York Times’ neocon sophist David Brooks posited a fake battle for the soul of the Right, pitting neocons vs. … neocons!

Six years earlier, in Commentary magazine, at least Joshua Muravchik had the decency to argue—albeit absurdly—that the sort of issues raised by conservatives critical of the GOP and of neoconservatism – race, ethnicity, the welfare state – simply have no place in conservatism. Unlike Brooks, Muravchik did not seek to deceive and confuse readers about the conflict.

But VDARE does not seek to beat Brooks and his fellow courtiers at their game of suppressing debate, professionally destroying their rivals, hogging all of the GOP propaganda pork, and getting invited to socialist cocktail parties. VDARE’spurpose is to pursue the National Question, as in: Shall the United States of America endure?

In the course of researching that article, I interviewed Pat Buchanan—or did he interview me?; I’m still not sure—and this is what he said.

The neoconservatives, I think are, given their roots, wherever you want to place them, by nature intolerant of dissent. They are not conservatives in the old tradition of National Review, where there was a robust contest every two weeks, with Russell Kirk and Frank Myer and James Burnham and Buckley and Whittaker Chambers...

They could [unclear] disagree, but it was a wonderful magazine. My feeling is that the neoconservatives fundamentally come out of the Left. You find it in the rhetoric, the constant iteration of the use of the word “fascist,” and the kind of demonizing rhetoric that the Left has always used and the idea that the other points of view on the right not only don’t have to be answered but they ought to be squashed.

… with regard to immigration, we’ve had many of the old Republican conservatives [who] were both protectionists and in favor of restrictive immigration policies, so you could assimilate immigrants and that’s all consistent with traditional Republicanism and conservatism. And the idea’s been demonized, and more than demonized, it’s been denied a hearing. That suggests that the people who are now defining conservatism are not really conservatives at all.

Sometime around the spring of 2007, it occurred to me that Buchanan’s description of the old National Review sounded an awful lot like … VDARE! I have strongly suspected ever since, that Peter Brimelow founded VDARE as a reincarnation of the original National Review, whether out of (unconscious?) reverence for Bill Buckley’s original project, or to stick it in his eye, and show him that he could outdo him. (Note that not only did Peter not solicit this fundraising letter, but I have never raised the issue of the intellectual genealogy between NR and VDARE with him. Thus, when he reads this letter, it will be the first he will learn of my ruminations.)

As a cyber-publication, VDARE does not have fortnightly editorial meetings—contributors live in such disparate places as Connecticut, New York, Virginia, California, Mexico and Japan, and VDARE founder Peter Brimelow has so far proven unwilling to spring for hotel rooms, first-class (or any other kind of) airline tickets, or sumptuous spreads, so that his writers could shout at each other in splendor, but if you analytically read and compare the many front page and blog articles on any given day, the conflicting approaches and presuppositions distinguishing socialists, regular Democrats, paleoconservatives, and other political orientations will immediately become apparent.

No matter. VDARE is not an adjunct to, extension or tool of the GOP, or any other political party. Rather, it is a nonpartisan, non-profit organization devoted to creating an alliance for raising the National Question, and pursuing patriotic immigration reform. And the last time the Open Borders Lobby (OBL) tried to sneak an illegal alien amnesty past the American people—in 2006—it was VDARE that rallied the patriots who prevailed, and National Review that, after weighing its options, got out of the way, and then ran after VDARE, duplicitously shouting, “Me, too!”

Peter Brimelow may not spring for luxuries, but he does spring for the most important expense a publication can have: Paying his writers (like me)!

This year he had a major additional expense, which went for the publishing event of the year: Supporting Steve Sailer, as he wrote his first book, the just published, America's Half Blood Prince: Barack Obama's "Story of Race and Inheritance," which you may purchase, for $29.95.

VDARE also provides free downloads of the entire text of Peter’s book, Alien Nation: Common Sense about America's Immigration Disaster, the most important book on immigration in America ever written. As the saying goes, all contemporary immigration journalism is but a series of footnotes to Alien Nation. (Alright, I confess! It's my allusion. So, sue me.)

Ninety-nine percent of the sites on the Web do not pay their writers a farthing, and the results are about what you’d expect. Endlessly recycled talking points (whether of the Left or Right), suspect syntax, fact-free arguments, and loopy logic are the order of the day.

Except for the syntax, none of the above is true of VDARE. Unlike not only the Web but the supposedly “professional” press (e.g., the Associated Press), its writers do their own research, rather than taking talking points memos from, say, the SPLC, and moving around some paragraphs, in order to make it appear as if they had interviewed SPLC hoax-meister, er, “expert” Mark Potok in the course of researching a story, when in fact Potok had written and sent them the “story.” (Gosh, I’d better quit now, before Potok and my other fans at the SPLC turn on me. Say hey, Casey Sanchez!)

To make a short story long, please support VDARE with a tax-deductible donation. Support it, so that America may abide; support it so that VDARE's writers, editors, and fact-checker may abide.

Thank you.

Partially Censored South Park Muhammad Episode

South Park Muhammad episode censored
US Muslim group warns creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker

[It is blasphemy, punishable by death, to show pictures of Matt and Trey!]

Article history

South Park is not known as a show that shies away from controversy, but last night its creators appeared to bow to threats of violence from a US Muslim group by censoring a typically irreverent episode about religious leaders, including Muhammad.

Wednesday night's show was labelled with the word "Censored" after the words Prophet Muhammad were beeped out during broadcast and images of the prophet in a bear outfit were substituted with ones of Santa Claus in the same costume.

But whether the changes were intended to acquiesce to the threats, or make fun of them, was not immediately clear. In the first part of the 200th episode screened last week, Muhammad appeared several times inside a bear suit, while the leaders of other religions were also depicted irreverently, including a scene which showed Buddha snorting drugs.

Before last night's show was aired, Islamists warned its creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, they could face severe retribution for repeating the depiction of Muhammad in costume.

A posting on the website of the US-based group, Revolution Muslim, warned Stone and Parker they would "probably wind up like Theo van Gogh" if the images were broadcast.

It posted a graphic photo of Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was stabbed to death in 2004 by an Islamic militant over a movie he had made that accused Islam of condoning violence against women. The post, which has since been removed, also included a link to a news article which contained details of a house in Colorado that the writers are thought to co-own and listed the addresses of Comedy Central's New York office and the show's production office in California.

Written under the name Abu Talhah al-Amrikee, the post said: "We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."

Amrikee later said the posting was not an incitement to violence but had been published to raise awareness of the issue and to prevent it happening again.

Asked if Parker and Stone should feel threatened by it, he said "they should feel threatened by what they did". He said he was disappointed that commentary on the posting had focused on the potential danger to the producers, but admitted, "I could shoulder some blame".

It is not the first time Stone and Parker have faced calls to censor their work. In 2006, Comedy Central prevented Stone and Parker from showing an image of Muhammad in an episode designed to comment on the Danish Prophet Muhammad cartoon, which sparked worldwide protests. The majority of Muslims consider any physical representation of their prophet to be blasphemous.

Comedy Central declined to comment on the latest controversy.

Moslems will kill, lie, and deny this--pretty much in that order--but there is a 1,000-year-old tradition of Moslems depicting Mohammed pictorially, including his face. The following illustrations were all drawn or painted by devout Moslems, between the Christian Middle Ages (as opposed to the Islamic Medieval Period, which has now lasted almost 1400 years) and circa 1930.

Massive Anti-Obama Rally Set for Sunday in New York

[My friend Mike Berman was kind enough to send me the following press release.

As I’ve previously noted, Jews’ overwhelming electoral support of Obama was clear evidence that they were not acting in an “ethnocentric” manner, but since the anti-Semites who reflexively scream “Ethnocentrists!” at Jews are immune to the facts, my argument made no impression on them.

Massive Anti-Obama Rally Set for Sunday in New York

by Hana Levi Julian

Arutz Sheva/Israel National News, April 21, 2010.
Thousands of Americans are preparing to protest in New York this Sunday against the Obama administration's increasing hostility towards Israel. The event is scheduled to take place outside the Israel Consulate on Sunday, April 25 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. A partial list of organizations who endorsed the demonstration is below.

Beth Gilinsky, head of the Jewish Action Alliance that is sponsoring the event, said, "We are outraged that President [Barack] Obama is scapegoating Israel and wants to expel Jews from their homes in Jerusalem. President Obama and Secretary Hillary Clinton show more anger about a Jewish family building a home in Jerusalem than Iran building a nuclear bomb," she added.

Gilinsky was referring to the brouhaha that ensued following a mis-timed announcement that the fourth stage of a seven-year plan for a housing project in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood of Jerusalem had been approved by Israel's Interior Ministry.

The announcement, made during a visit to the region by Vice President Joe Biden, led to weeks of recriminations and condemnations by U.S. officials, beginning with an immediate, harsh condemnation from Biden himself. Less than 24 hours after he left the country, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to scold him for having embarrassed the vice president and the Obama administration, and delivered a list of concessions and demands Israel was expected to fulfill in response. Other Obama officials followed with statements of criticism of their own.

Not one U.S. official at the time made mention of the formal government ceremony held by the Palestinian Authority during Biden's visit -- the naming of a public square in Ramallah to honor Dalah Mughrabi, the terrorist who led an attack that came to be known as the Coastal Road Massacre. In 1978, Mughrabi and her band of terrorists hijacked a tour bus on the coastal highway, murdering 37 innocent civilians and wounding 71 others, including more than a dozen children.

On the night that PA officials gathered to honor Mughrabi, Biden was delivering a speech at Tel Aviv University in which he repeated his condemnation of Israel for proceeding with the three-year-old housing project in a part of the nation's capital restored to Jerusalem during the 1967 Six-Day War, and thus not recognized by the U.S. government. American officials followed up a day later, when Biden had left the country, with more harsh criticism of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his government.

“Vast segments of the Jewish community will not tolerate the president's continuing attacks on Israel. Grassroots Jewry will not be silent,” Gilinsky vowed. A long list of Jewish organizations as well as a number of Christian and other non-Jewish groups have signed on to the event as well.

The demonstration will also feature a taped statement by former New York City mayor Ed Koch, a strong supporter of Obama's presidential campaign. Koch recently expressed his shock and disappointment with the increasing anti-Israel views expressed by the president and the increasing hostility of his administration towards the Jewish State.

Among the organizations who have officially endorsed the upcoming rally are:

AISH Center

Americans for a Safe Israel

Artists 4 Israel

Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors

Christians and Jews United for Israel

Coalition for Israel

Crown Heights Women for the Security and Integrity of Israel

Dr. Joseph Frager, Jerusalem Reclamation Project

NY Assemblyman Dov Hikind

Trillion-Dollar Fannie Mae Cap-and-Trade Scam was in the Works Before 9/11


Franklin Raines: Trillion-dollar affirmative action baby?

By Nicholas Stix

While black longtime Fannie Mae scamster Franklin Raines was busy defrauding the predominantly white tax base to the tune of over $50 million dollars for himself, and billions overall, as head of the corrupt, publicly-financed mortgage giant, he was also busy hatching a plot with white accomplices, whereby they could rake off billions, and even trillions of dollars in profits through a scam that would force all businesses and utilities in America to pay cap-and-trade carbon credits. Fraudulent science meet real estate fraud/extortion, by way of legislation so vicious that it would have astonished King George III.

Writes Barbara Hollingsworth,

When he wasn’t busy helping create a $127 billion mess for taxpayers to clean up, former Fannie Mae Chief Executive Officer Franklin Raines, two of his top underlings and select individuals in the “green” movement were inventing a patented system to trade residential carbon credits.

Patent No. 6904336 was approved by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office on Nov. 7, 2006 -- the day after Democrats took control of Congress. Former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H., criticized the award at the time, pointing out that it had “nothing to do with Fannie Mae’s charter, nothing to do with making mortgages more affordable.”

It wasn’t about mortgages. It was about greenbacks. The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation.

Besides Raines, the other “inventors” are:

* Former Fannie Vice President and Deputy General Counsel G. Scott Lesmes, who provided legal advice on Fannie Mae’s debt and equity offerings;

* Former Fannie Vice President Robert Sahadi, who now runs GreenSpace Investment Financial Services out of his 5,002-square-foot Clarksburg home;

* 2008 Barack Obama fundraiser Kenneth Berlin, an environmental law partner at Skadden Arps;

* Michelle Desiderio, director of the National Green Building Certification program, which trains “green” monitors;

* Former Cantor Fitzgerald employee Elizabeth Arner Cavey, wife of Democratic donor Brian Cavey of the Stanton Park Group, which received $200,000 last year to lobby on climate change legislation; and

* Jane Bartels, widow of former CEO Carlton Bartels. Three weeks before Carlton Bartels was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks, he filed for another patent on the software used in 2003 to set up the Chicago Climate Exchange.

The patent …gives Fannie Mae proprietary control over an automated trading system that pools and sells credits for hard-to-quantify residential carbon reduction efforts (such as solar panels and high-efficiency appliances) to companies and utilities that don’t meet emission reduction targets. Depending on where the Environmental Protection Agency sets arbitrary CO2 standards, that could be every company in America.

The patent summary describes how carbon “and other pollutants yet to be determined” would be “combined into a single emissions pool” and traded -- just as Fannie’s toxic portfolio of subprime mortgages were….

… passage of the legislation would create an artificial, government-mandated, trillion-dollar carbon trading market that would drive up the price of energy, indirectly making housing more expensive.

If the proprietary emissions trading system functions like other exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange, which makes most of its revenue on listing and trading fees, its owners could see extremely generous profits, especially with a patent that keeps out competition for two decades.

So Fannie Mae, a quasi-governmental entity whose congressionally mandated mission is to make housing more affordable, has been a behind-the-scenes participant in a carbon trading scheme that would do just the opposite.

In January, Europol announced that up to 90 percent of the volume in the European Union’s own carbon-trading market was fraudulent, costing EU members $5 billion during the previous 18 months. That would be just the tip of the iceberg if the Congress were to make a similar mistake….

This reads like some sophisticated thriller. It’s unbelievable, and they’d been plotting it for years!

Note that when Hollingsworth writes “passage of the legislation would … indirectly mak[e] housing more expensive,” that’s housing for whites and perhaps Asians. Unconstitutionally “protected minorities” would get bailed out.

This raises the question of what relationship financial scammers like Frank Raines had to the science scammers behind so-called climate change.

Meanwhile, the consequences of this scam would be that ordinary whites lose their homes paying for all this; black and Hispanic deadbeats get a free ride; and the black and white crooks at the top split billions (or is it trillions?) in "profits"?

Obviously, all “cap-and-trade” legislation must be stopped dead in its tracks, and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac must be shut down.

When you think of affirmative action and diversity, you can’t just think in terms of black layabouts getting welfare, SSI disability, “no-show” and “show-no” civil service jobs, and psychopaths getting jobs as police officers and surgeons. You must think, too, of Frank Raines, not to mention, the likes of Colin Powell, Condi Rice, and Michael Steele!

Thanks to longtime reader R.C., for sending this along!

The Price of Real Journalism

Why VDARE.COM Needs Your Help
By Nicholas Stix

(This is another previous fundraising appeal I made, back in 2005.)

In this holiday season, you are being deluged by scam artists seeking to fleece you for what they claim are “charities.” Have you gotten your yearly call, for instance, from the guy who claims to be collecting donations to give to the widows and orphans of policemen murdered in the line of duty? Ha! The guy on the phone is a low-paid flunky; over 90 percent of the money you donate goes to his boss, who is a crook and a creep who should be hunted down by real policemen and put out of business. (Our state and federal legislators are so busy passing pork barrel legislation that it has not occurred to them to pass laws criminalizing phony charities. And so, crooks like the above-mentioned type continue to fleece the big-hearted.)

But one legitimate, truly worthy organization that desperately needs your support is VDARE. This Web site, founded six years ago by the brilliant social critic, Peter Brimelow (author of, among other works, Alien Nation on immigration and The Worm in the Apple on the teachers' unions), is the site par excellence for news, analysis, and commentary on immigration into these United States. And it ain't too shabby on race, either.

Why should you support VDARE? Glad you asked. For several years, VDARE was alone among major Web sites in banging the drum for immigration restriction. And it is still the best source for information on the attempt by President Bush and America's elites of the Right and the Left, to smuggle into law a stealth amnesty (aka “guest worker plan”). And it is the best source for information about the immigration bureaucracy and the many de facto amnesty programs already in existence.

VDARE is also one of the only sites on the Internet whose publisher actually pays his writers. And one of those writers is yours truly. So, if you think that my work is deserving of support, please hit this link to give to VDARE. Thanks in advance.

One of the reasons why most of the material you read on the Internet is so godawful is that almost no one pays for material. And so, the typical Web “pundit” sits down in front of his pc and pounds out his “insights” in about ten minutes – even less, if he's a fast typist. And who needs spell-check? (That begs the question: Why is most of the material one reads in newspapers and magazines that pay writers so bad?)

But work that demands to be read takes time to research and write. Hours, days, weeks, even months. It takes Web searches; it requires buying and poring over sometimes expensive, out-of-print books; sometimes it takes costly Lexis-Nexis searches and archived newspaper and journal articles; and it may take calls to lawyers, flacks, politicians and victims.

Very few people can afford to devote that sort of time and money to writing, and those who are independently wealthy generally demand, and get payment. (They're the ones writing the drivel published in newspapers and magazines.) And very few “professional writers” are willing to buck the conventional wisdom, Left or Right. Thus are we saddled with the likes of Tamar Jacoby and Jonah Goldberg from the Republican side, and Ellen Goodman and Frank Rich from the socialist side. None of the aforementioned writers will give you the truth about ... anything. Jacoby, in particular, has been lying about immigration and the possibility of immigration enforcement for years, in order to prevent Americans from doing anything to reassert American sovereignty and American law. Her goal in life is apparently to ensure that every upper-middle-class American family's “civil right” to illegal immigrant nannies, gardeners, and cooks; and every American corporation's “right” to low-wage Indian computer programmers remains inviolate.

Some formerly orthodox neoconservative writers, such as Heather MacDonald, have in recent years come around to understand that illegal immigration is destroying America, but they might never have, had it not been for VDARE alone banging the drum for immigration restriction, lo these many years.

Peter Brimelow has published two [in the meantime, up to 21] of my articles since May 2004, and they were two of my most important exposés on policing and multiculturalism (“'Disappearing' Urban Crime” and “Diversity is Strength! It's Also ... Police Corruption”). [Of my more recent work for VDARE, see: “The Knoxville Horror: Crime, Race, The Media, and ‘Anti-Racism’”, “The Incredible Disappearing Duke Rape Hoax,” my exposés on The Federal Hate Crimes Bill, Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau, and reports on the Anne Pressly Murder, The Pearcy Massacre, The Winchester Atrocity (here and here) and minority jury nullification. And in the blog section, letters from The Heretical 2 and a report on the Jeremiah Munsen case.]

In his current fundraising appeal, Brimelow writes, “help feed starving young writers in fiscal 2005!”

“It is amazing how little money it takes to get young people to take this risk—not a risk at all, really, but certain professional suicide, unless we can build VDARE.COM up as an alternative institution fast enough.” [How nice to be referred to as “young” – that hasn't happened in years!]

“At various times this year, I’ve had to go slow paying writers—and also to turn aside the many new writers who want to appear on VDARE.COM. It’s deeply distressing, because just a little money means so much to them—and to their country.

“Tonight, we post Tom Piatak’s summary of the War against Christmas, Michelle Malkin, plus, of course, the blog.

“Scroll down to the end, past Ms. Bevens’ picture—and when you pass the donate link, remember my starving young writers.”

We Interrupt the Gossip Stories about Tiger Woods’ Newest Mistress for This News Alert

By Nicholas Stix

(This fundraising appeal first appeared on December 8, 2009.) is in trouble, and needs your help!

Your nation is being stolen from you, and your pocket picked clean, but instead of hearing about that, the MSM choose to distract you with constant updates about Tiger Woods’ mistresses, wife, and mother-in-law.

The real news is that the Democrats and Republicans are both playing a game of “Can You Top This?,” to see who can destroy America quicker. Who stands between them and their goals of turning the last, best hope on earth into another Brazil (GOP) or Zimbabwe (Democrats)? Millions of red-blooded, patriotic Americans, that’s who, but those millions of patriots need intelligence. And the greatest single source of nation-saving intelligence is But VDARE is in trouble, and it doesn’t have a John Doe in the White House, and hundreds of John and Jane Does in Congress, picking the taxpayers’ pockets, in order to keep it in business.

So, please find it in your heart to hit this link, and make a tax-deductible donation to the VDARE Foundation, a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.

I thank you, and your posterity will, too!

CNN Apologist for Genocidal Black Domestic Terrorism, Roland Martin, Calls Confederate Soldiers “Terrorists”

By Nicholas Stix

Black supremacist CNN personality Roland “We Know Our History” Martin has lied on TV, in defense of the racist, mass-murdering Nation of Islam, in claiming that calls for violence by [blood-drenched] NOI leader Minister Louis Farrakhan were “mere rhetoric.” And now, in a symmetry of prevarication, he has insisted to black CNN host Don Lemon of Confederate History Month, “This was a recognition of American terrorists.”

Mr. Martin, was that a criticism or a compliment?

You see, Roland Martin goes gaga over American terrorists of a certain hue.

As I wrote in October,

In October 2007, when Louis Farrakhan called for violence against policemen, racist black CNN propagandist Roland Martin—who in February misrepresented and condemned a non-racial caricature by the New York Post’s Sean Delonas as a “racist” attack on “Barack Obama”—covered for Farrakhan, claiming that the threats were mere “rhetoric.”

MARTIN (to CNN host, Kiran Chetry): But again, but you're also not realizing the history of the Nation of Islam. And so, the Nation of Islam has long, in terms of spoken out or fought against this whole issue of “white oppression.” That is what the appeal of the Nation of Islam is. And when you go back and listen to some of the recordings and speeches of Elijah Muhammad, and you listen to Malcolm X prior to his conversion, when he went to Mecca, and say you're not going to find anything that is different. So, it is not like, it is a surprise when you actually hear the kind of rhetoric. [Or see the bloodshed accompanying it!]

“The history of the Nation of Islam”?! Tell it, Brother Martin!

Martin: So, we can't act as if Cosby is just so different than what Farrakhan is saying. In fact, you're going to find Louis Farrakhan will often—
has been saying the same things about personal responsibility that Bill Cosby is now saying.

(And if Cosby is so similar to Farrakhan, how many murders has Cosby had a hand in, Brother Martin? And when did Cosby become the leader of a mass murder cult?)

Martin has since turned his anti-Confederate oral rant into a column: “Confederates and al-Qaida are the same: terrorists,” a stew of bad analogies and complete cluelessness about both history and the laws of war, in which Martin seems at pains to prove that he knows less than my 10-year-old.

One thing that Martin’s rant also proves is that he is eminently qualified to be a tenured, full professor of “African-American Studies.”

As some of Martin’s readers pointed out, there was nothing about the Confederate Army’s conduct that could be described as “terrorist,” but much that the Union Army did, especially under generals Sherman and Sheridan, that was terroristic.

Perhaps Martin should adopt a more appropriate name, say, “Roland 17X Martin,” in honor of Lewis 17X Dupree, the high-level member of Louis Farrakhan’s Harlem mosque who murdered NYPD Patrolman Philip Cardillo in an ambush, on April 14, 1972.

Mark Potok and the Southern Poverty Law Center Want the Whole World to Know about Nicholas Stix and VDARE!

(This is a golden oldie from Christmas, 2008.)

By Nicholas Stix

Mark Potok

On December 5, the The Baltimore Sun ran the following letter from the SPLC’s Mark Potok about me and my work for VDARE. Potok and the SPLC consider it crucial that the public know about our vital work, and I thank them for their PR efforts. (Mark, the check’s in the mail.)

December 5, 2008

On Wednesday,
The Baltimore Sun published an attack by Ron Smith on the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization known nationally for its lawsuits against and investigations of white supremacist hate groups in America (“The truth about ‘hate crimes’ and the racial justice racket,” Commentary, Dec. 3).

Aside from a great deal of unsubstantiated name-calling, Mr. Smith mentions
an essay written by Nicholas Stix, a man Mr. Smith sparely describes as a “columnist and blogger.”

What Mr. Smith declines to say is that Mr. Stix is a well-known white nationalist who recently prepared a lengthy introduction to an article,* published by the National Policy Institute, that paints “a statistical and narrative portrait of the war on white America.”

In it, Mr. Stix concludes that the Brown v. Board of Education ruling outlawing school segregation was “arguably the worst decision” in the Supreme Court’s history. “Integration and the civil rights movement,” Mr. Stix continues, “led directly to the destruction of great cities.”

Many of Mr. Stix’s articles, which dwell heavily on what he sees as a huge wave of anti-white hate crime committed by black people, are archived at the VDARE Web site.

With Mr. Stix, Mr. Smith claims that the October murder of an interracial couple in Winchester, Calif., allegedly by four black men, was motivated by race hate - despite the statements of police that the motive was robbery.

Mr. Smith goes on to describe hate crime legislation as a “questionable legal construct used almost exclusively against whites.”

Actually, the concept has been ratified by the Supreme Court in a case in which the defendant was a black man who had attacked whites because of their race. Yet that doesn’t stop Mr. Smith from claiming that “the truth is one thing and the liberal agenda is another.”

Mark Potok, Montgomery, Ala.
The writer is director of the Intelligence Project for the Southern Poverty Law Center.

*Actually, my good friend Mark erred, in describing me as having written “a lengthy introduction to an article.” In fact, I wrote the introduction to an over 45,000-word NPI report, The State of White America – 2007, which I edited and co-wrote, and which can be downloaded for free at NPI.

I have a feeling that Mark neglected to read more than the introduction. I’m immensely proud of that report, which two brilliant social scientists, statistician [4-19/00 correction: economist] Ed Rubinstein and historian Robert J. Stove, together wrote with me, and want everyone to read it.

I realize that Mark is terribly busy, what with phoning in race hoaxes all the time, cashing supporters’ checks, and having meetings, but mightn’t it be a good thing for the director of an alleged “Intelligence Project” to spend a wee bit of time collecting … intelligence?

I appreciate that Mark incorporated the correction I had made of his misquotation of me as having called Brown, “arguably the worse [sic] decision” in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court.

As for my being a “white nationalist,” which is a leftist code phrase for “neo-Nazi,” that description will give those familiar with me and my work a hearty belly laugh. For those not yet in on the joke, the only way to “get it” is to read my work, which you can do for free! My work is accessible at archives for’s “front page” and blog; on my blogs, Nicholas Stix, Uncensored, The Critical Critic, Wikipedia Follies, The Zebra Project, and Schuyleriana: The Work and Life of George Schuyler; at my Web site, A Different Drummer, and oh, about a dozen other places on the Web, give or take.

My friend Mark Potok often simply makes things up, and ignores or misrepresents as non-racial, real racial crimes such as the Wichita Massacre, Knoxville Horror, Columbia University rape-torture-attempted murder case , Kirkwood Massacre, Winchester Atrocity (and also here) and the Nation of Islam's 1970s’ mass murder campaign.

Conversely, in the case of the racist, Jena, LA attempted murder committed against white student Justin Barker by from eight to ten black students, the SPLC not only refused to tell the truth about Barker’s ordeal, but in one propaganda release after another, turned his attackers into victims (see, for instance, here, here, here and here), and used the Jena Hoax as a means with which to defraud the American public out of millions of dollars in fundraising.

In contrast to Potok & Co., I spend thousands of hours per year researching my articles, reading books, articles and reports on the Web, and interviewing people. The books (not to mention, bookcases!) are a major expense, as are things like computers (I just bought a new one in May, and already, it’s crapping out on me) and printers, and I have less dramatic but continuing expenses for my ISP, telephone, toner, paper, etc.

But at over 60 hours per week, my biggest expense is time. I need to make money from my work. While the SPLC has shown itself willing to increase my name recognition and readership, neither Mark Potok nor the SPLC’s boss of all bosses, Morris Dees, has been willing, so far, to publish or pay me for my work. The New York Times has shown a similar reticence.

That’s where VDARE comes in. VDARE founder Peter Brimelow has been one of my biggest boosters, publishing eleven [now 21] of my front-pagers and approximately 30 [80] of my blog essays. But Peter needs your help, in order to be able to pay me. Please generously support VDARE [at this link!].

VDARE is sponsored by the VDARE Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity; your contributions are tax-deductible.

Thank you for your support.
