A Junior Officer’s Reflection on the Army’s Mishandling of Soldier Suicide

A Coyote Culture Submission Piece

By Gerald Stockton

The smell was the first thing that hit me as I entered the empty apartment. A sickly-sweet scent hung in the air, a smell both familiar and foreign. The yellow vinyl tape that matter-of-factly stated “Crime Scene: Do Not Enter” hung limply from the doorway. I could see where the buckshot from the shotgun had impacted the ceiling in three spots. The concrete flooring beneath the absent carpet stained a dark burgundy. I didn’t need to ask what had happened, I knew.

My battalion commander had assigned me as…


The Moment You’ve All Been Waiting For: Coyote Culture Endorses Sanders for President

Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the latter of whom endorsed the former last October

By the CC Editorial Team

Earlier this week, Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont received some very good news: recent polls put him atop the leaderboard for the key early states of Iowa and New Hampshire, as well as the behemoth primary in California. Similarly encouraging was a recent poll of likely voters showing Sanders with a four point lead over the sitting President while outperforming all other Democratic candidates among independent and young voters, groups viewed as highly important to defeating Donald Trump in 2020. After the…


Psychedelic music often reflects the state of radical politics. In a world facing more existential threats than ever before, what is it saying now?

The year is 2012. Barack Obama is up for reelection to the office of the President. Despite few concrete accomplishments, and one extraordinarily flawed but progressive accomplishment in the Affordable Care Act, his supporters still have great hope for the promised change. Life is good for rich white liberals, who sacrificed nothing to get the credibility of putting a black neoliberal in office instead of a white one. Meanwhile, the slow recovery from…

Ah, the New Year is upon us again. A time of rebirth, refreshed by another revolution around the sun as we ready to begin the journey once more. Of course, this is hardly how it works out. Most of us embark on the journey saddled by the previous year’s mistakes and regrets, and handicapped by a hangover that is equal parts alcohol dehydration and disappointment at a shitty, expensive night out. The cynic in me looks at the New Year and shrugs with an apathy reserved for those things that I just cannot be bothered to have…

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who want you to know how serious they are about politicians using their positions to advance personal interests

Before I left for South America, the whole country was abuzz with the latest news on impeachment. People from across the political spectrum seemed to be watching the hearings and commentary nonstop, thumbs-at-the-ready to fire snark across the bow to their ideological opponents on Twitter. Even many online leftists and other cultural commentators without much skin in the game appeared excited about the possibility of impeachment, as if it would serve as a national exorcism of the vile and shameful reality that is our current political situation. Finally, some semblance of justice will be served to the…

Pepe the Frog is an oft-seen meme in white supremacist chatrooms

The views presented in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the DoD or its components.

Yesterday, Army and Navy met for the 120th time in Philadelphia to play a game that at least one million and one sportscasters and pundits have said “represents the best of us” or is “the best tradition in football” or any number of similarly grandiose statements that appeal to our sense of patriotism as well as our enjoyment of grown men savaging each other for our entertainment. Like most venerated…

Former Army 1LT Clint Lorance displays his patriotism at an event for United American Patriots

Though many people do not yet realize it, the fifteenth day of November in the year two thousand and nineteen will prove a momentous day for the future of the Empire. It is only fitting that three of the bravest troops our nation has produced finally received vindication from the mouth of a leader known to fire off courageous declarations like blazing arrows, illuminating the truth and burning down the edifices of the corrupt and immoral. …

Weapons Seized in the Arrest of Coast Guard Lieutenant and Marine Corps Veteran Christopher P. Hasson

The views presented in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views of the DoD or its components.

Thirteen LAW rockets, ten Claymore anti-personnel mines, 200 pounds of C-4plastic explosives, blasting caps, weapons, ammunition, CS riot gas, TNT, and other military equipment. Between 1984 and 1985, this veritable cache of illicit goods found its way into the hands of a white supremacist paramilitary organization known as the White Patriot Party (WPP), previously known as the Confederate Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. The weapons and equipment had all been pilfered from…
