Operation Mockingbird is a rising podcast that covers hard topics on the Right and concerning the future of human society as we move out of modernity. Host Joe Arrigo aptly covers a wide range of topics, and has interviewed me before, which turned out quite well. I was fortunate to be invited back for a second interview, which covers the events in Charlottesville, the Alt Right and the changes happening to America as Antifa and the Establishment link hands. I hope you enjoy it.

While Roderick is off gallivanting across the third world (either getting a kidney stolen or throwing commies out of a helicopter with Based Duterte), Brett, Everitt, and Peter sat down at NPR’s round table to discuss a meta-topic not often discussed in the Alt-Right: practical social issues. Specifically, the discussion revolved around three major topics: abortion, gay marriage and/or gay rights, and women in combat. We all have different opinions on these topics (even if some of us haven’t given them much thought) and so it was nice to sit down and hash them out.
As usual, below is an outline with the highlights from the show (as well as links to articles and books referenced) and we’ll see you next time!
0:00 – Introduction
0:54 – Peter clarifies his role at NPR and is confirmed for Contrarian Alt-Right (Con-Alt-Right)
1:17:20 – Robert A. Heinlein on women in the military:
“[T]here is very strong reason why female Naval officers are assigned to transports: It is good for trooper morale…Can you think of anything sillier than letting yourself be fired out of a spaceship with nothing but mayhem and sudden death at the other end? However, if someone must do this idiotic stunt, do you know of a surer way to keep a man keyed up to the point where he is willing than by keeping him constantly reminded that the only good reason why men fight is a living breathing reality? In a mixed ship, the last thing a trooper hears before a drop (maybe the last word he ever hears) is a woman’s voice, wishing him luck. If you don’t think this is important, you’ve probably resigned from the human race.” – Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers, (New York: Ace Books, 2006), 260.
Brett rejects materialism and wants to preserve the feminine mystique that combat might destroy
I am fortunate to be the interview subject for an episode of Red Ice Radio, the longstanding dissident realist Right radio program that tackles challenging topics and brings out the more thoughtful side of the alt right and related cultural shifts. Host Henrik Palmgren conducted an informed interview, and I did my best to keep up. You can listen to the show here.
During the inaugural episode of Nationalist Public Radio, the round table (Everitt, Brett, Roderick, and Peter) meets to introduce your new source of news and entertainment in The Current Year™, NPR! We discuss what we see NPR as being, who we are, and a myriad of other topics. Specifically, we discuss what the Alt-Right is and how we each view it, we examine questions of history and culture, as well as straying down the path of biological determinism.
Below is an outline with the highlights from the show (as well as links to articles and books referenced) and we’ll see you next time!
