Award goes to Olivia Pierson for this post here on SOLO:

"Identitarian" is a pejorative term that wimps on the right use to distinguish themselves from the so-called alt-right, because many on the alt-right understand they were delivered something by their forebears that was extraordinary - and they don't want to see it surrendered to the darkest forces that humanity has to offer.

I'm creating a new political party. It should be the most radical organization ever. It may also be the best.

An Evening with Douglas Murray & Cornel West: Polarised

After going to hear these two men discuss ideas about Western culture, my overall feeling was that they didn’t really “have at it.” They didn’t come across as all that polarised from one another, as one might’ve thought they would be, given that they are usually on the opposite side of every issue. West, the loud-speaking, black American liberal, Murray, the politely brilliant, conservative Englishman.

Review: Robert Spencer, The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS, 2018

Grant Jones's picture
Submitted by Grant Jones on Tue, 2018-08-28 00:16

For many years Robert Spencer has operated Jihad Watch, which documents Islam's unrelenting war upon the civilized world. He has also written a series of books documenting the fundamental nature of Islam as violent, irrational and incompatible with Western culture. His latest book The History of Jihad from Muhammad to ISIS was published last month.

Beethoven & Brahms—The Best!

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra conducted by Edo de Waart, with Augustin Hadelich (violin). Music by Beethoven and Brahms. Michael Fowler Centre 18 August.

The sonata, the concerto and the symphony are among the greatest achievements of mankind. They reached their apogee in the nineteenth century. They have been under assault since the early part of the twentieth, when Stravinsky and others launched a war on melody and beauty.


There is no Measure for Hate Speech

There is no such thing as hate speech.

Hate speech is an irrational anti-concept dripping in the pure slime of subjectivity without any proper objective measure to give it any qualification.

The day after this concert I spoke at a pro-freedom of speech rally at Parliament. For me there was a synergy between these events. Freedom of artistic expression was unknown to Dmitri Shostakovich for most of his career.

Recovering gradually from an attack of something that left my legs useless and my mind in a hallucinatory realm for four days, an experience I would be hard put to describe even as a fairy tale (no, I do not use cannabis or any other brand of recreational drug), I am beginning to catch up with my emails and grasp the state of the world – where the Congressional hearings stand and how far Islam has progressed in the West (Islam, the West, and “progress” being mutually contradictory terms).
