An online publication called The Occidental Observer has become a primary voice for anti-Semitism from far-right intellectuals. Founded in October 2007 as a "Webzine," or online magazine, it is one of a number of publishing efforts that have grown out of the Charles Martel Society, a group founded by William Regnery II, a Chicago, Illinois-based heir to the Regnery publishing fortune.
Ideologically, the magazine is guided by the ideas of Kevin MacDonald, an anti-Semitic professor of evolutionary psychology at California State University, Long Beach, who regularly writes for the publication.
This is evident in the magazine's "mission statement," which speaks repeatedly of "ethnic identity and interests" and asserts that whites, once they become a minority, will "develop a stronger sense of their own identity and interests." A "group editorial" from November 2008 says that Jews could partner with "European-Americans" so long as they "acknowledge the role of the organized Jewish community in the dispossession of European America." Both of these ideas are common tropes in MacDonald's writings, and parrot the type of language he uses.
Articles in The Occidental Observer are often explicitly anti-Semitic in comparison to similar far-right "academic" publications that seek to couch their bigotry as legitimate intellectual inquiry. This is likely a direct result of MacDonald's influence. In addition to MacDonald, Edmund Connelly (who calls himself a "freelance writer, academic, and expert on the cinema arts), is a chief writer for the publication and has also contributed articles with anti-Semitic themes.
Examples of anti-Semitic articles in the publication include:
In addition to The Occidental Observer, The Charles Martel Society publishes The Occidental Quarterly, a racist print publication that mimics the look and style of academic journals and has been in existence since 2001. In its own words, it hopes to "defend the racial group that created and sustains our civilization." The Occidental Observer seeks to distinguish itself from The Occidental Quarterly by printing shorter and more obviously opinionated articles.
Both Kevin MacDonald and Edmund Connelly have contributed articles on Jews to The Occidental Quarterly, though that publication is generally far less anti-Semitic than The Occidental Observer.
