The ease with which people dehumanize one another is going to be the undoing of our civilization, at this rate. I've started avoiding saying things like "is a right-winger" because it implies some permanent state that separates us, and replaces "human being" in how others recognize them. Opinions and viewpoints aren't written into our genes.

Thank you for sharing.

"The ease with which people dehumanize one another is going to be the undoing of our civilization, at this rate."

I think part of it is the anonymity of social media. All I can say is I TRY not to say things about someone that I would not say to their face.

Also the 1st thing I say to someone I'm in an argument with is 4 words Cite..Your..Sources..Please. he Please is important.

Don't always follow my rules, but I TRY.

In what the late Saddam Hussein once dubbed “the great Satan,” roughly two-thirds of the United States enlisted military corps is white . . .

The fat, bulbous U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin once confirmed in a 93-2 vote of the U.S. Senate, immediately embarked on a whirlwind media tour of duty, telling the pseudo-secular sycophants in the state-controlled tabloid press and state-controlled television talk show circuit about how the U.S. Army is full of bad racist white men.

And now the U.S. Army is doing ads begging for more young white males? What happened?

Even with a full-on declaration of war from Congress, and even if Gavin Newsome could be cheated into the Oval Office by ZOG somehow, with Globohomo diversity brigades going door-to-door looking to impress American children into military service, they will be met with armed, well-trained opposition, the invasion at the Southern border is going full tilt, and the drugs are flowing in like never before . . .

Get ready for it . . . the fat old devil worshipping fags on Capitol Hill, on Wall Street, in Whitehall, and in Brussels are in no shape to fight a war themselves, and most Americans are armed to the teeth with their own guns . . . fuck you and your Jewish god.

We have 100% air superiority and 100% sea superiority…Iraq and Afghanistan were totally unnecessary.

Beautiful tribute, Greg. Mike was lucky to have you as a friend. Cancel culture is a cancer on our society that destroys lives, friendships, communities, and potentially the country. In times like these, your family and God will give you strength to withstand demonic attacks like the ones Mike received.

It's a bitter pill to swallow but if someone is unable to tolerate differences of opinions, they are not a real friend. Now that the rot has been exposed, I hope that saner heads will prevail and FIRE will play a major role in defending universal principles.

I live in a small town in North Carolina that is home to an internet blogger, The Educated Debutant. I remember her posting terrible things about Mike Adams during this time, and the responses from her thousands of followers made me sick to my stomach. It was as if she had thrown chum in the water to start the feeding frenzy on Mike

Soon after I heard he had committed suicide, and I never saw any note or acknowledgment of this from her. She just acted as if it never happened, and as if she had no part in it. I will never forget it, and can never look at her the same way again.

The Frankfurt School adapted Marx’s theories on revolution to include Freud’s theory of the subconscious. The Cultural Marxists’ main focus was to reshape the subconscious of Western men and women and thus create new type of person: one who would react passively to provocations of all kinds.

Cultural Marxists encourage abortion, birth control, divorce, homosexuality, “carrier women,” drugs, miscegenation, the destruction of the traditional family, and unrestricted immigration of racial foreigners into white countries. This is a reflection of what the Cultural Marxists preach: white reproduction is evil, and that which prevents white reproduction is good.

Adams got a lot of people unnecessarily killed by attacking public health officials…nitwits like DeSantis and Kemp have never apologized for their asshattery in 2021/22.

Thank you for this simultaneously heart-wrenching and cathartic article. I’ve been consistently told by family/friends that cancel culture doesn’t exist for the past several years while spiraling into a silent depression, spurred by the impulse that if I give any opinion of substance I will lose whatever work or community remains. The situation we find our society in is untenable and I find honest empathetic writing like this an incentive to look for ways out of the predicament while we still can.

Judeo-messianism has been spreading its poisonous message among us for nearly two thousand years. Democratic and communist universalisms are more recent, but they have only come to reinforce the old Jewish narrative. They are the same ideals.

The transnational, transracial, transsexual, transcultural ideals that these ideologies preach to us (beyond peoples, races, cultures) and that are the daily sustenance of our schools, in our media, in our popular culture, in our universities, and on our streets have ended up reducing our biosymbolic identity and our ethnic pride to its minimum expression.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam are death cults originating in the Middle East and totally alien to Europe and its peoples . . .

Sometimes we wonder why the European left gets along so well with Muslims. Why does an often overtly anti-religious movement side with a fierce religiosity that seems to oppose almost everything the left has always sought to defend? Part of the explanation lies in the fact that Islam and Marxism have a common ideological root: Judaism.

Don Rumsfeld was right when he said, "Europe has shifted on its axis," was the wrong side that won World War II, and it becomes clearer every day . . . What has NATO done to defend Europe? Absolutely nothing . . . My enemies are not in Moscow, Damascus, Tehran, Riyadh or some ethereal Teutonic bogeyman, my enemies are in Washington, Brussels and Tel Aviv . . . Fuck you and your Jewish god.

No country is taking its own course in this invasion because it is a political agenda led by the UN and driven by Jews and their (political) puppets. Most people simply don't know or understand that this is a political agenda. However, some manage to understand that politicians are deliberately working to import Muslims and replace people, but that's about it, they are like a computer that cannot work because the program does not allow it.

I am not surprised that some people view his suicide as a good thing. I have close relatives who think like that, so I know how they think and how they express themselves.

In a nutshell: some people are really awful and need to be ostracized from society and if they decide to off themselves, well, then we don't have that scum around anymore.

I have friends that are all over the political spectrum. Most if not all have really dumb opinions about things. Hateful, even. But I could never cast them out like that. We're all human, we're all flawed.

The fact that you were friends with Mike may mean you are "morally polluted" in some circles, but (hopefully) not circles you or me or any other person with some integrity would want to be a part of.

Very thoughtful piece. We need to get back to the liberal values which got us here, and away from the intersectional and identitarian virus that is ripping the west apart, and making us all stupider in the process.

I voted for Ron Desantis to be governor of Florida, not ambassador to Israel.

The recently ousted Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Congressman Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who took at least a dozen votes to get elected speaker, traveled to Israel immediately upon his election, declaring to the Israeli Knesset that the USA is steadfastly committed to supporting Ukraine in their war against Russia.

Was he running for speaker of the Israeli Knesset too?

Following his ouster . . . McCarthy (R-CA) traveled abroad again, this time to England, and expressed his open contempt for the white Republicans who make up the majority of the GOP and praised Democrats for their diversity during a debate at Oxford in the wake of his ouster as House Speaker . . .

Is he now running for the Prime Minister of the U.K.?

Nevertheless, he is free to go on media tours bashing white people and lobbying for Israel, because he has now resigned from the US House of Representatives . . . I can only conclude that the collective RINO butthurt over former Speaker McCarthy is all about the Israelis who have hijacked the American deep state war machine . . .

It has become so painfully obvious, especially where you have someone like Nikki Haley wagging her finger and shouting down Vivek Ramaswamy in a presidential debate on live national television when the questions of this Ukrainian war against Russia and any mention of Israel are concerned, that the United States government has become a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Israeli Political Action Committee.

We can't afford healthcare for American Children because we need to keep bombing everyone else's for the love of Jesus and Israel . . . fuck you and your Jewish god . . . https://cwspangle.substack.com/p/satanism-is-a-jewish-cult

I'm not on board with your antisemitic blood libel. Nor do I believe that turning a blind eye to Islamofascism is going to make the world a better safer place, any more than it will once Russia reconstitutes the Soviet Union.

This is one of the saddest and most moving pieces that I have read in a long time. I honestly had to fight back tears through much of it.

I find it terrifying how ideology can turn intelligent and otherwise rational people into irrational and hateful monsters. It is even sadder they often turn on the best people.

While our times are physically and materially easier than ever, they require great courage to be as honest as we took for granted just a few decades ago.

RIP Mike Adams

Let your death not be in vain.

FIGHT YOUR OWN WARS, YOU KIKESUCKING ZIONIST ASS-WHORE.

Sweden: Jews Call for Ban on Nordic Resistance Movement . . .

❝I ALWAYS LIKE to take note of Jewish organisations calling for bans on immigration resistance parties. You could say “Why bother? We’re surrounded by Jews screeching for White Genocide in various, usually artfully disguised, ways. This is just another twig on the bonfire.”

This is true. But arguments about the JQ and its relationship to White minoritization are open to various kinds of objection. You can quote this or that Jewish journalist calling for open borders or abolishing White people. Objection? “It’s just one guy; no proof he’s representative of anything other than himself; besides, he’s making a legitimate argument that’s open to democratic debate.”

That is why calls for bans on political parties assume a special moral significance. It’s a demand for the suppression of debate. And when it comes from an organization that claims to be representative of Jewry, and that claim goes unchallenged, then a special moral culpability attaches to the Jews.❞

Hi Greg. I have to admit that I was startled when I came across this column today. I am (was) a huge fan of Mike. Have all his books, read all his columns, watched all his appearances etc. Just a few days ago I was thinking about how much I missed him and how sorry I am that he is no longer with us so to see his name in your title shook me as I feel a stab of pain in my heart when I think about his story. I believe he was 10 years too early with this fight. Only recently have we seen a multitude of these cases. He was alone and took the brunt of the vicious attacks the radical left is so good at. And like with many suicides, those left behind wonder if they could have done anything. Like a note from a fan would have changed anything but I still can't help but regret that I didn't send it. Maybe that's why I'm writing this today, to thank you for helping him when you did, and for the work you do to fight against the woke culture mob.

@glukianoff Hi Greg, I was wondering if you had heard of the case of Richard Bilkszto? He was a high school Principal who committed suicide this year after being bullied in DEI training at work then subsequently (essentially) blacklisted and prevented from working again for the crime of having argued that he felt it was unfair for the DEI presenter to claim that Canada was absolutely a more racist country than the United-States. Bilkszto had taught in some American inner City schools in his younger days and he felt that some Canadian policies like Universal health care coverage contributed to greater equality here (in a nutshell: opinions that are debatable but extremely commonplace in Canada saw him labeled and repeatedly referred to as a white supremacist). I realize that you normally write about University Professors but everyone in this man’s life seems to agree that the cause of his depression was related to what happened in the sessions and how he was treated by his employer afterwards. I think the case is worthy of your attention and I would love to hear your thoughts on it... Here is some coverage:

Oh I should have thought to check before asking I had not seen that I am sorry. Thank you for this article it has really struck a chord for me because I’m constantly surprised by how much we have come to a point where we completely dehumanize people who have a different view. Perhaps foolishly I never saw this coming...

The thing that horrified me the most was the reaction to the publication of Richard Bilkszto’s story! In many quarters (most of the other local and national papers, some others in the DEI field and even from the few people I know who work in the educational sector within that school board. Most of the public statements and responses I saw made some variations on the following theme: the story should never have been told and the fact that it was told is evidence of white-supremacy in action. It disturbed me to see people being so indifferent to a death and saying that his story shouldn’t even be told.
