I’m an author, journalist and entrepreneur originally from Syracuse, New York, currently based in Europe.
I started this blog in April of 2012 to chronicle a hitchhiking trip I took from Syracuse to Portland, Oregon, in order to see America, shock myself out of my comfort zone, and change my life. The trip lasted six months and took me more than 3,500 miles across sixteen states and through several of America’s major cities, including Chicago, Minneapolis and Seattle. Following the trip, I became an author, publishing books such as Do the Philippines. You can learn more about my books by visiting MattForneyBooks.com.
Prior to starting this blog, I ran the online magazine In Mala Fide from 2009 to 2012. The best articles from that site are collected in the book Three Years of Hate. I’m also a graduate of Christian Brothers Academy and trained in English and journalism at the University at Albany and SUNY Plattsburgh.
My current writing focuses on politics, traditionalism, and nationalism. In addition to this blog, my articles have also been published at Taki’s Magazine, Return of Kings, Reaxxion, Right On, Alternative Right and other sites. I also served as Reaxxion’s editor. I’ve also helped cover the U.S. presidential election for Red Ice, and I’ve been featured in the New York Times, NPR, Magyar Hírlap and other major news sites. You can find an archive of all posts on this blog by clicking here, an archive of articles I’ve written for other sites here, and a list of all interviews and media appearances I’ve conducted here.
