OD Digest: January 2018 In The Trumpenreich

Editor’s Note: January 2018 was a very productive month for Occidental Dissent. I’ve put together this digest as a summary of our content around key topics.


Steve Bannon’s collapse at Breitbart was the biggest political story of the month. There was also a government shutdown over DACA. President Trump’s State of the Union address pitched a new DREAM Act amnesty. Nothing has come of it yet though.

Richard Spencer spanked Sargon of Akkad and won the Skeptics War. The Alt-Right spent much of January reaching a mass audience in debates on YouTube. In other news, Nick Fuentes continued to pick immature fight and alienate his former allies. It was bad optics..

Ben Sasse styled himself as a champion of the First Amendment. Jeff Flake gave a speech on the floor of the Senate comparing President Trump to Joseph Stalin. Neither Flake or Sasse could top Cuck Erick Erickson and Cuck David French who virtue signaled their support for immigration from Third World shitholes which they found preferable to immigration from European countries like Norway.

Merchant Right

The Merchant Right hung out with Antifa candidate Chelsea Manning at Cernovich’s ‘A Night for Freedom’ who publicly says they don’t deserve a platform. Paul Joseph Watson spent his time promoting soy products while stealing the soyboy meme. The Merchant Right as a whole also gave a ringing endorsement of those brave, Iranian feminists after years of condemning feminism.

President Trump struggled to uphold the politically correct norms of the modern presidency. He blurted out in private that we shouldn’t accept immigrants from shithole countries in Africa, Caribbean and Latin America. At the same time, President Trump and Vice President Pence observed the ritual of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and created the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park in Georgia. Rep. John Lewis still thinks he is a ‘racist’ though.

Jewish Question

Conservatives have continued to display obsequious subservience to Jews. South Carolina attempted to outlaw anti-Semitism. Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Israel, visited Yad Vashem, donned a yarmulke at the Western Wall and gave the most cucked speech ever seen in Israel by an American politician on the floor of the Knesset. While the United States condemned Iran for its human rights violations, Israel began the process of annexing the West Bank and ethnically cleansing African refugees. Russia Insider and Paul Nehlen bravely challenged Jewish power.

The Trump administration and its Israeli and Saudi allies are committed to the goal of regime change in Iran. It would prefer to accomplish this goal by means short of a military invasion though. Iran claims the CIA’s “Dark Prince” Michael D’Andrea, who was recently installed to run its Iran operation, was behind a US-Israeli-Saudi plot to destabilize the Iranian government by fomenting the street protests along the lines of Operation Ajax which were quelled earlier this month.
