For all the good it might do, I’m going to use this humble blog to recommend another but here’s my rule: it is someone I’m in no way affiliated with but someone I believe deserves more exposure. This particular blog is far better read than my own and he’s been writing for much longer and I just can’t believe he isn’t better known.
Weird Republic has been around since about 2001 and I began reading it around 2003 when an article from it was linked to me. At the time I was in university and one of my classes had a debate about gay marriage. I was one of the only ones to stand opposed to it and I still believe in hindsight I had the better arguments. What has also become clear to me in hindsight was that the battle over marriage was largely lost before I was born with cohabitation and pre-marital relationships being already the norm. This was so much so that I didn’t really realise how wrong it was and it was because of this that traditionalists were fighting a losing battle.
Weird Republic was one of the few sites out there when the homogamy (gay marriage) propaganda offensive began that gave an honest and unapologetic look at the gay “community” from it’s roots to the present. A number of these essays I read over the years have been put together in a book and seem to be unavailable on the website. This is also true of the earliest essays which have been put together in a book with the same title as the website; Weird Republic. Thomas Clough, the website’s author provided a stark contrast to the pathetic effort put up by the “conservative” movement which has all but surrendered since. He is ruthless with the truth and this is something made clear in all of his articles.
As he describes himself:
Think of me as a beat cop with a pencil handing out rough justice to the enemies of time-tested American virtue.
If the kind of conservatism Clough represents was more prevalent, I’d be proud to call myself one. Naturally, his unapologetic political incorrectness is ignored by left and right and I understand he was prevented from advertising his website in National Review.
Despite not being well known, the site has seen fairly regular updates for most of the new century. Another reason I think he is less known apart from the content is because he tends to write lengthy essays that are heavy reading for lunch breaks and morning commutes. While I quite enjoy this, they are not friendly to a general audience. Nor are they friendly to a generation of commentators who prefer to use Twitter to discuss important social issues.
This is one website that I’d love to see get more exposure and with the current political climate, I think he could. Many in the alternative right and the manosphere would be especially interested in his essays on the social experiments and experimenters that have sent a wrecking ball through much of Western society over the last century.
Don’t take my word for it though, check it out!
