    Michael O. Church? My secret identity and my real one are getting along a bit too closely.

  • Chad

    Thanks for the links. I’m glad you found Chesterton interesting on Job. If you have any deep thoughts, I’d love to hear them either in a post or an email.

  • Deep Strength

    Thanks for the links!

    It’s crazy but God is teaching me so much as I write too.

  • Marissa

    Your links are always great, but that image at the end made me breathe a huge sigh of relief for the guy who escaped that disaster.

  • Keoni Galt

    As always, thanks for the lightning…and yeah, those pics sure tell quite the tale of this chick’s solipsism run amok.

  • Alan J. Perrick

    “Free Northerner”

    Calling K.K.K. or Stormfronters “racists” is redundant… All whites (pro-whites) are “racists” according to the anti-white narrative. More people are seeing that, and that’s why more and more are saying that “Anti-racist” is just a code word for anti-white.

  • theshido

    You’re the man FN! Thanks for the link.

  • soapjackal

    Noah Smiths article is intriguing.

    He of course attempts to denounce te whole movement via humor and smarth, but at the same time he acknowledges two interesting concepts that aren’t discussed enough:

    1. The libertarian movement will probably be split by neoreaction. The dentologists and anarcho-capitalists are both not fans of ‘statism’ and ‘minarchy’ no matter the form and will fight it. This will be interesting to see which side gets the thinkers.

    2. That the European left/right struggle is very overt and historical. The progressive rightists will be in the very interesting position of dealing with true right intelligentsia. Conservative America will be altered if DE can fire up.

  • Free Northerner

    @ Chad: Nope, I’m not thinking anything all that deep about it.

    @ Alan: You are correct. I’ve been trying the “no enemies to the right” thing and avoiding using the “racism” slur except sarcastically.

    @ soap: It could be very interesting if the DE picks up steam.

  • The Karamazov Idea

    Odd, RightStuff struck me as anti-christian when I browsed a few of their articles. I see some of the “based pagan master race” showed up to mob the comments. I wonder when they will realize that worshipping Thor won’t erase the fact that they’re 40 pounds overweight, are educated to the level of a baboon in a city zoo, are economically dependent on their parents, and are absolutely terrified of personal harm and death.

    Also, I’m a bit annoyed that AmRen took such a decidedly anti-papist stance. Francis has put his foot in his mouth a few times (claiming the biggest problem in the world is unemployed youth, for one), but he’s hardly a liberal.

    I wish I had more time to pursue many of these links, but I’m rather busy not being a neo-nazi and paying bills, not allowing my body to atrophy in front of the television, and doing things that will better myself, my family, and my beliefs.

  • The Karamazov Idea

    I guess I’ll take comfort in the fact that ramzpaul told the SS worshipping morons to take a hike in his latest video.
