American Taliban: Is Smashing Historic Heritage a Meritorious Act?

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Unz Review In March 2001, in the mountains northwest of Kabul, the Taliban blew up two colossal statues of Gautama Buddha. The act was almost universally condemned. But the Taliban’s justification of historic vandalism makes at least as much sense as those offered by today’s American Taliban, who are on a nationwide rampage of statue-destruction. Here in Madison, Wisconsin, confused protesters just destroyed two statues honoring causes they presumably support. One honored Hans Christian Heg, “a Norwegian immigrant, activist and abolitionist who led an anti-slave catcher militia helping slaves escape before serving as…

Malcolm X Was Right, Islam Can Solve US Racism Problem

Iranian newspaper Sobhe Sadiq interviews Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor Question: Protests over police brutality and the death of George Floyd continue to rage across the US. What do you think about the protests? I sympathize with people who are angry about the murder of George Floyd and other abuses by American police. Abusive police are a serious problem here in the USA, epecially in black communities. The police abuse problem is one aspect of the larger problem of rampant injustices and inequalities. There is also the related problem of the moral, ethical, and spiritual vacuum left by the decline…

Israel Trains “Vast Numbers of Law Enforcement Officials” in Minneapolis

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor The Jewish Institute of National Security Affairs (JINSA) brags that it has brought Israelis to train “vast numbers” of Minneapolis cops. Are they training them to treat Americans the way Israel’s uniformed thugs treat Palestinians? No wonder the black community sees cops as an army of occupation.

Two Cheers for Trump! Religion IS Essential, Social Media MUST BE Content Neutral! (Updated with Trump’s announcement of executive order to fight online censorship)

by Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor As the token “radical Muslim” here at VT I have a certain license to express a point of view that is not 100% kosher certified by the editorial board. So I’m going to join the minority-of-one here, Robert David Steele, and say something nice about Donald Trump. After mercilessly mocking and deriding Trump for almost four years, I am now shocked to find myself cheering for him. Well, not for him personally, but for two of his recent outrages: reopening houses of worship, and ordering an investigation (and hopefully a revocation) of the law granting…

COVID Made In a Lab! Ex-Skeptics Admit It Due to Accumulating Evidence

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor The dominant globalist (anti-Trump) wing of the mainstream media (MSM) continues to engage in a massive coverup and propaganda operation aimed at concealing the evidence that COVID-19 was made in a germ warfare lab. If you get your news from NYT/WaPo/CNN/MSNBC/Telegraph/Guardian you would never even know about the lively scientific debate—which has recently been won by those arguing for the artificial origin of COVID. Meanwhile he pseudo-nationalist pro-Trump wing is peddling another lie: That COVID was manufactured and unleashed, whether accidentally or deliberately, by the Chinese government. The “blame China” mighty Wurlitzer is playing…

Memorial Day: A Pagan Holiday of Human Sacrifice

“Mmm! The pungent smell of roasting pigmeat wafting across the park on a perfect afternoon as spring gives way to summer. Must be Memorial Day! All hail our fallen heroes, and pass the bratwurst!” -typical American quasi-cannibal indulging in watered-down ritual sacrifice By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor “I’ve been to rice boilings and I’ve been to pig stickings, and the rice boilings had better vibes.” Stephen Gaskin’s celebrated aphorism influenced the hippie generation and helped inspire the trend toward vegetarianism.  It made a big impression on me when I was going through my teenager vegetarian phase in the 1970s.…

I Like Icke—Here’s Why

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor My friend and colleague Ian Greenhalgh recently outraged many readers with David Icke – Disinfo Agent or Just an Idiot? Ian’s headline followed the template I established a few years ago with Is Alex Jones a Complete Idiot? When several friends emailed similar questions about Ian himself, I answered: “He’s neither an idiot nor an agent, he just likes to pick fights with more famous and more radical ‘conspiracy theorists’ and stir the pot. (Like I did with the Alex Jones article.)I think he sincerely believes what he’s saying. It is quite possible that China will win…

Abandonment of Hajj Pilgrimmage Signals Approach of World War 3 (Islamic Prophecy)

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor The minor pilgrimage to Mecca, the Umrah, has already been cancelled. The Great Pilgrimage, the Hajj, scheduled for July, will likely also be shut down. In the above video recorded years ago, the world’s leading Islamic eschatologist, Sheikh Imran Hosein, cites a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (SAAS) that the Hajj would be abandoned during the End Times (akhir uz-zamaan). Sheikh Imran suggested that it would be canceled during a period of extreme geopolitical tension between Zionists and their enemies (Iran and its friends?) due to manufactured hysteria over a pandemic. Sheikh Imran has…

U.S.-backed ‘peace process’ in Afghanistan is a charade: Balkan Post interviews Kevin Barrett

“The U.S. will ultimately have to admit defeat and leave Afghanistan,” Kevin Barrett said in an interview with the Balkans Post, adding, “But the current ‘troop reduction’ is an election-year ploy by Trump.” Balkans Post Balkans Post: More than 18 years have passed since the United States invaded Afghanistan.

Why Big Brother Fears Qassem Soleimani: He’s the Che Guevara of the 21st Century

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for the Unz Review He was the 21st century’s most accomplished military leader—and a deeply spiritual man. Before they killed him, they didn’t even want you to know his name. After martyring him, they realized their mistake—and pulled out all the stops to stop you from finding out that he was a great man, a modern-day Che Guevara. An unprecedented wave of censorship has crashed down on millions of people posting pro-Soleimani messages and images on social media. There has never before been a mass silencing like this. The hundreds of millions of Iranians, Iraqis,…
