As VDARE.com’s 20th Anniversary Celebration comes to a close, we are honored to look back on the kind words and strong support columnist and activist Michelle Malkin offered at our kickoff.
This milestone for VDARE coincides beautifully with the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Compact, and the significance of the timing is not lost on us. VDARE.com moves forward with determination, inspired by the Pilgrims’ persistence in the face of overwhelming odds, to keep America American.

Merry Christmas. I want to extend my warm congratulations to Peter Brimelow and the staff of VDARE.com on the 20th anniversary of one of the most consequential websites on the Internet.
I first started reading Peter Brimelow’s reporting in Forbes while a cub editorial writer in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s. Peter’s thorough investigative journalism in both The Worm in the Apple and Alien Nation greatly influenced my own work. I remember well the backlash to Alien Nation from the usual Open Borders suspects, especially the anti-American Wall Street Journal.
De-personing and disavowing may be new to the Generation Z nationalists who’ve taken up the cause. But Peter and VDARE.com have been battling the Cancel Cult and gatekeepers for two decades.For fun, I scrolled through the 1,100-plus posts listed in my author archive on VDARE.com and found the first three: a link to my syndicated column in February 2002 on religious worker visa fraud in mosques, a column on the INS whistleblowers who exposed the Catch And Release policies that allowed illegal alien and D.C. sniper Lee Malvo to remain the country, and a column on the media whitewash of the black-on-white Wichita Kansas massacre in the fall of 2002.
When I launched my own eponymous blog in 2004, VDARE.com was on my original blogroll must-read links and remained there to the chagrin of the SPLC and Conservatism Inc. There are too many indispensable contributors to mention, but I’ve been a longtime fan of Brenda Walker, Juan Mann, Joe Guzzardi, Allan Wall, James Kirkpatrick, John Derbyshire, Federale, and Washington Watcher. I rely on the site to get unparalleled news, commentary, on the ground reports, data, and insider scoops all focused on the National Question that no one else dares publish.
I will be forever indebted to Peter for his generous review of Invasion and friendship over the years. We tag-teamed for a memorable debate against Frank Sharry and his ilk in New York City at some hoity-toity donor-class event in 2002.
17 years later, Peter and Lydia were with me to unwind after my CPAC speech calling out Conservatism Inc. to its bloated, traitorous face – two decades in the making. Thank you, Peter, for your patience and good cheer throughout.
VDARE.com is more important than ever as it turns 20 because a vigorous new generation of twenty-somethings is rising in revolt against Conservatism Inc and Open Borders Inc. Your impact can be seen as young nationalists echo exactly the principles that undergird VDARE.com: America is a real homeland, not just a credal proposition.
With Silicon Valley and the Swamp uniting to purge their hallowed platforms and stages of patriotic dissidents, VDARE’s survival as a central clearinghouse for the Old Guard and for newcomers is paramount. To readers old and new, thank you for your independence, curiosity, and support. May the next 20 years of VDARE be as fruitful as the last.
- Demography is destiny. And, of course, diversity is not our strength.
- America’s historic and cultural identity matter.
