Nineteenth century Britain saw the beginning of the mass media at its best and worst: novelists like Charles Dickens could become household names serializing their novels, a careless journalist could nearly inspire a pogrom by linking the ‘Jack the Ripper’ murders to London’s Jewish population. ‘If it bleeds, it leads’
By now, if you’ve been following the always fractious relationship between underground music and high-street fashion, you’ll have heard of Strong Scene Productions, H&M, and fake National-Socialist Black Metal Bands. In brief, the Swedish fast-fashion brand was accused of “one of the more ill-advised marketing campaigns in recent history.” Allegedly,
Imagine that you’re driving across the United States with $2500 in cash. Maybe it’s a deposit on a new apartment; it doesn’t really matter – it’s yours and it’s all legally acquired. You get pulled over. You weren’t speeding, but this stretch of highway has been used by drug runners
The Middle East today is the last place anyone in the mainstream western media would think to look for progressive political thought, and even less to see those thoughts translated into action. The idea of part of the region being not just free, but well on its way to utopian, isn’t one that you’re going to find in the mainstream media.

Will the Satanic Children’s Activity Book be banned from Florida Schools?
Last fall, Orange County, Florida’s school board passed a measure that allowed for religious materials to be disseminated in their schools.

What you are about to see is graphic as fuck – be warned!!! The “drug wars” in Mexico have turned parts of that country into a killing field where human lives don’t mean shit to the criminals. The atrocities that take place daily are captured by photographers and reporters that
396 years ago, the first slaves from Africa arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, and from this day until now, Black Americans have been treated as subhumans by the law! During the early years of slavery, the slave masters had to find a way to make sure that their property did not
The Satanic Temple, a religious organization not associated with the Church of Satan, has won a battle with the Florida State Capital building, and will be allowed to display their holiday diorama in the building’s rotunda.

This video of NYC police brutality is proof that All Cops Are Bastards, no matter their color or gender. Every time I watch this footage, my heart feels heavy with pain and anger. Be careful New Yorkers, because if you try to jump the turnstile you might just catch a
This has not been a good week for the neo nazi movement. The USA’s Ku Klux Klan has been cyber-conquered by ANONYMOUS, and in Germany a neo nazi march inadvertently raised 10,000 Euro for EXIT Deutschland, a non-profit group dedicated to helping neo nazis decolonize their minds and exit the
Since a Missouri KKK group began making threats of lethal force against the Ferguson protesters last week, calling them “terrorists” and promising violent retaliation if any action is taken by protesters following the outcome of police officer Darren Wilson’s grand jury decision, ANONYMOUS has taken on the despicable organization head-on.
There’s been a lot of talk about terrorism in Canada these past several days, and it shouldn’t surprise us. What are the reactions to such violent acts that we expect? Retaliation? Yes. Panic? Maybe. Everything getting blow way out of proportion with people acting stupid? Of course. The people of
