A new "Unsilent Truth" column by Ronn Neff.


Posted September 12, 2019.

Ronn Neff: "Exclusionary," comrades? The New York Times and others are eager for Americans to consider that America was founded in 1619, because American history is all about slavery.

I wonder how the Indians feel about that. Excluded, maybe? Ω

Nicholas Strakon: Corporate commies strike again. They're taking time out from promoting sexual deviance and suppressing dissent, and getting back to attacking gunowners' rights: "Chief executives of 145 companies urge Senate to pass gun control laws," by Amelia Lucas, CNBC, September 12, 2019.

They want "background checks and a strong Red Flag law."

Sorry to repeat myself, but this is the kind of thing you get when the economy is fascized, and control of the culture at all levels — from pop to intellectual — is ceded to the Left.

And, oh, yeah, they're not really taking time out from pursuing the other evils. That was just a figure of speech. Ω

Ronn Neff: On Labor Day we celebrate organized labor. That is, we celebrate organized crime and the smashing of the heads of those who disagree with you. Such are the underpinnings of liberty and the keystone of prosperity. Ω

Ronn Neff: "Presidential candidates support rescinding medals for Wounded Knee Massacre," by Lisa Kaczke, Sioux Falls Argus Leader, August 21, 2019.

The elimination of statues, memorials, and honorifics relating to various evildoers of U.S. history certainly cannot stop until all mention of them is either wiped out or at least paired with a plaque "setting the statue (or memorial or honorific) in context."

The Last Ditch Historical Society and Committee for Reconciliation hereby proposes that as another step in this worthy direction all almanacs, encyclopedias, and history books include a Roger Maris-style footnote explaining that George Washington, William Henry Harrison, Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, and other Indian-genocidal maniacs were not really presidents, but pretenders whose inclusion is merely a courtesy. Ω

Nicholas Strakon: Will Establishment pols now pressure the government to rescind the medals it gave Paul Tibbets and the other mass-murderers aboard the Enola Gay?

According to Wikipedia, the Americans crewing that plane killed "between 90,000 and 146,000 people in Hiroshima." That occurred not 129 years ago but 74 years ago. Ω

Ronn Neff: Using Emma Lazarus's poem as the foundation for American immigration policy is like using Ernest Gold's soundtrack to "Exodus" as the foundation for American foreign policy. Ω

Ronn Neff: You want an image for private/public partnerships and democratic socialism: guards falling asleep while prisoners hang themselves. Ω

Posted August 10, 2019.

Ronn Neff: A self-identified college student asked the self-identified Joe Biden, "How many genders are there?" He answered, "At least three."

The student asked him, "What are they?" He didn't know the answer, but we do:

(Unless you're French, and then there's no neuter.)

By the way, the answer to the first question was not "at least three." It was "exactly three." Ω

TLD is a forum of opinion, edited by hard-core market anarchists, that does not flinch from any of the most pressing issues of our time. We are especially interested in questions of culture and ethnicity, our Polite Totalitarian ruling class, and the homicidal humanitarianism of the U.S. Empire.

Our writers include anarcho-pessimists, Old Believers in the West, unreconstructed Confederates, neo-Objectivists, and other enemies of the permanent regime. We are conscientiously indifferent to considerations of thoughtcrime. Thus, from individualist and Euro-American perspectives, we confront the end of civilization — and do our level best to name its destroyers. (More about who we are.)
