We Start The Fire—And We Need Your Help To Spread It!

Patriot readers around the country depend on our journalism because they know they can’t trust the corporate media.

VDARE.com is a nonprofit, and we depend on your financial support to keep publishing.

The Historic American Nation needs a voice. VDARE.com gives it that voice, speaking up against the dangers of mass immigration and for the strengthening of local and regional communities that are such important components of America’s real national identity.

However, since the momentous election of Donald J. Trump in 2016, the patriot movement’s once-bright future has been darkened by censorship, deplatforming, demonetization, social credit scores, Guilt By Association, ritual firings, show trials and Unequal Justice.

VDARE.com’s daily analysis of important issues illuminates this darkened path with the truth.

VDARE.com’s exclusive American Worker Displacement Index, our “Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome” tracking and other analysis and news not covered by the corporate media, light signal fires for the Historic American nation, informing the fight to keep America American.

VDARE.com doesn’t just echo the talking points of other worthy people around us. We develop concepts about the peril facing America, and we communicate those concepts in ways that spark interest with major patriotic influencers, spread like wildfire through their larger audiences and light the way forward for patriots everywhere.

Fires We Lit (aka Case Studies):

  • The Great Replacement: Peter Brimelow was talking about this in his immigration book Alien Nation in 1995, asking, “…why, in order to prevent it from discriminating against minorities, the historic American majority must be destroyed?“

    It wasn’t until 2011 that Renaud Camus wrote the eponymous novel, and in 2022 the New York Times said versions of Replacement Theory “have become commonplace in the Republican Party… No public figure has promoted replacement theory more loudly or relentlessly than the Fox host Tucker Carlson, who has made elite-led demographic change a central theme of his show since joining Fox’s prime-time lineup in 2016” [A Fringe Conspiracy Theory, Fostered Online, Is Refashioned by the G.O.P., by Nicholas Confessore and Karen Yourish, New York Times, May 15, 2022].

With your help, VDARE.com lit that spark.

  • The term “Historic American Nation” was first used on VDARE.com by Peter Brimelow, March 11, 2000 and has since been adopted by influencers and patriots across the media from Ann Coulter to Nick Fuentes. Pedro Gonzales of Chronicles Magazine recently referenced the Historic American Nation as a guest on The Charlie Kirk Show podcast. While Pedro is a worthy patriot, Charlie Kirk has made a career of knowing which way the wind blows. VDARE.com supporters should take heart in seeing that Kirk thinks the wind blows toward the Historic American Nation.

    With your donations, VDARE.com made that wind blow.

  • War On Christmas: Peter Brimelow has been credited (in Snopes, for example, November 17, 2017) with popularizing this concept in the early 2000s, recognizing early that the replacement of traditional and authentic Christmas celebrations was a battle Politically Correct enforcers thought they could win. They were wrong, and this went all the way to the top, with President Trump himself weighing in in favor of Christmas.

    Supported by you, VDARE.com took that fire all the way to the White House.

  • The term “Conservatism Inc.” Coined by James Kirkpatrick to sum up the current state of the alleged conservative movement, this concept, incubated at VDARE.com, has thoroughly taken off. A quick Google finds it referenced in mainstream article titles by Rod Dreher in the American Conservative, Ben Domenech at the Spectator and the Never Trump rag The Bulwark has an entire category in their index for the topic.

VDARE.com lit that fire, and the challenge it presents to the status quo cannot be snuffed out.

  • J6 Defense, aka “The Capitol Insurrection Hoax”: VDARE was one of the first to publish in defense of the January 6 protestors. Shortly after our exclusive camera crew covered the January 6 protest at the nation’s capital, we released a stunning video pointing out a number of lies and inconsistencies in the corporate media coverage of, and Conservatism, Inc.’s response to, this genuinely Mostly Peaceful Protest. While the whole world condemned the grassroots Americans who assembled in support of election integrity and of their favored outgoing president, we published our video defending them. It was after us that Tucker Carlson produced his feature length documentary, Marjorie Taylor Greene and others took public stands in support of the J6 political prisoners and viewers the world over saw the truth at the ridiculous televised show trials in the congressional investigation.

    As long as we have your support, the VDARE.com will never flinch in defense of the Historic American Nation.

  • Intra-city or intra-state secession: Peter Brimelow noted the possibility that immigration-driven demographic change might provoke intra-U.S. secession in Alien Nation in 1995, and VDARE.com has been covering the trend since we began. That spark of an idea, the concept that splintering can and will happen, has lit up now in many parts of America. On the state level: “Greater Idaho,” “Vexit” (Virginia counties pressing to join West Virginia), Florida’s “Flexit,” Texas’ “Texit,” and in northeast California, the potential “State of Jefferson.”

Breaking up states is a good idea, but breaking up cities may be the first step, and VDARE.com is here for that too. In April, VDARE.com’s Jack Dalton covered the Buckhead-Atlanta rift. VDARE.com’s support of the split became a headline in Atlanta, where the Buckhead secession leader issued a groveling apology for retweeting our commentary.

With your donations, VDARE.com will never apologize for lighting the fires that keep America American.

VDARE.com’s fires stand in stark contrast to Regime Media’s outages and underscore the need for independent journalism focused on protecting America through reporting facts and spreading analyses in defense of our American identity.

Remember, in this new era of paywalls and Substack subscriptions, VDARE.com provides exclusive coverage free of charge and advertising. We rely completely on donations from readers like you to keep going.

This work isn’t easy, and it isn’t cheap.

We’ve grown enormously, despite the rise of, and in some ways as a response to, Tech Totalitarianism. As corporate activists hacked away at our income and traffic streams, repeatedly cancelled our public meetings to stifle and demoralize our community and targeted our staff—many of whom are now forced to work pseudonymously—we bite the bullet.

VDARE.com still fights battles against censorship online, but we have developed protections for our staff and assets, and we secured our own venue for meetings: the historic stone Berkeley Springs Castle in Berkeley Springs, WV, where we held our first conference this April. It was a roaring success. The ranks of our freelancers grow deeper, the permeation of our message is more persistent, and we rely ever more on donations from readers like you to support this mission.

For more than twenty years, VDARE.com has never compromised our principles. Not out of fear, and not out of greed for more revenue.

VDARE.com veteran Steve Sailer once wrote that “what goes unsaid eventually goes unthought.” VDARE.com exists to think and say, to ensure that the ideas behind real Americanism and the confrontation of our dispossession are spread far and wide.

The real question is: What idea can you help us spread next?

  • A total Immigration Moratorium?
  • The end to Birthright Citizenship?
  • The retroactive end to Birthright Citizenship?
  • Strategic deportations?
  • Mass deportations
  • Ending dual citizenship?
  • Official English?
  • Affordable Family Formation?
  • CTRL + F Immigra Stories aka the Regime Media Burying the Immigration dimension?
  • American Worker Displacement Index?
  • Disgruntled Minority Massacres?
  • Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome?

At VDARE.com, we understand our duty to deliver news and analysis that fuels popular movements. It is our life’s work. The truth is, without VDARE.com’s thought leaders, the path will no longer be lighted, and the future of America may slip away into the night.

Our work is essential, but the truth is, we can only do it in partnership with our readers. Will you partner with us today?

Having led VDARE.com in tandem with Peter the past eight years, I’ve realized what we’re doing is more than just posting content to the internet.

We’re doing more even than lighting fires.

We have built and continue to build a community of patriotic immigration reformers, passionate and principled, and what we’re doing here is a community effort.

If you have the means to give and are moved to do so, you play a key role in that collective effort: ensuring the survival of the Historic American Nation. You also give VDARE.com the power to plan our future, charting new ways for journalism to serve the good of the American people.

There is hope for the future, but you will not find it in the cold, dead headlines of the Regime Media. The hope that lies in the hearts of patriots is the fire of truth. What feeds our fire, kills them.

Help us kill the darkness today! PLEASE DONATE NOW
