2014—Burn This Bitch Down!

Roman Bernard and William Neville join Richard to discuss the year that was and their expectations for 2015 and beyond. Was 2014 the year that the social oppression of European nationalists transformed into political oppression? The year that PC race scandals morphed into mob rule? Did we witness the birth of a neo-Cold War? Also, Roman, William, and Richard hand out their annual “STIHIE” awards for great moments in civilizational decline.
