Vox Day

Theodore Beale, commonly known by the pen name Vox Day, is an American and politically he aligns himself with the alt-right, nationalists and traditionalists.[1].[2] He is an author, blogger, editor, political commentator and computer game designer. Day is the lead editor of the Finland based company Castilia House which publishes science fiction, books on military strategy and other works.[3]

Day is an advocate of "tribes" and says he supports "the right of tribes of every kind to exist..." (ethnic groups, political groups, social groups, etc.)[4] Day believes the United States should and will dissolve into tribes (and ideally peacefully).[5][6]

Day is of English-Irish, Mexican, and Native American descent (Day indicates his brother was generally tested and that he shared the results with him).[7] Day indicates he has considerable Mexican heritage and is related to Mexican revolutionaries.[8]

Day is of the opinion that the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was bad legislation and believes "American culture is white culture."[9] [10] He states that the United States will dissolve as a nation and predicts will will happen by 2033.[11] According to Day, "American freedom has been yielded", but one day it will be free again because "Rebellion is in our blood. Independence is our birthright. Our fathers were the original revolutionaries."[12]

He rejects the label of conservative because he maintains that modern-day "conservatives are nothing more than progressives in slow motion."[13]

Science fiction writer

Vox Day has authored a number of science fiction works.[14]

Vox Day's ideological battle related to the Hugo Awards

In 2015, Vox Day and others battled leftists in relation to the Hugo awards which are annual awards given to science fiction writers. [15] On April 4, 2015, Breitbart News reported that "Hugo Awards Nominations Swept by Anti-SJW, Anti-Authoritarian Authors" (SJW is an acronym for the derisive term social justice warrior).[16]

Vox Day's opposition to atheism and evolution

Vox Day wrote the book Irrational atheist and he often criticizes atheism on his blog.[17]

Day is a creationist who believes in interpreting the Bible as literally as possible.[18] As as the age of the earth from a scientific perspective, Day quotes Dr. Sheldon Cooper who said "geology isn't a real science".[19]

PZ Myers' refusal to debate Vox Day

The Christian apologetic website True Free Thinker declares concerning the intellectual slothfulness of atheist and evolutionist PZ Myers:

PZ Myers dismisses Vox Day’s book The Irrational Atheist: Dissecting the Unholy Trinity of Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens while admitting to only having read a few chapters.

Yet, he refuses to debate Vox Day on the existence of God, or evolution for that matter (Myers being a professor of biology) based on dismissing a book he barely read (yes, it is merely a lame excuse which he peppered with a barrage of emotive ad hominems) — see Speaking of Assiduous Absconders…Yet Again, Vox Day Challenges PZ Myers to Debate.[20]

Vox Day and Peter Grant launch a boycott of Tor Books

On June 19, 2015 Vox Day and the science faction author Peter Grant launched a boycott due to actions of senior employees of Tor Books which they deem inappropriate. Until the employees are dismissed by their parent company MacMillan Books, they are encouraging the public not to purchase Tor Books.[21][22].

Grant indicates that he wants to help grow the boycott until it has a "seven-figure annual impact".[23] Grant further declares: "What's more, in a SF/F market that's increasingly dominated by independent authors, with cratering sales among mainstream publishers and tight financial margins, even a small boycott may have an impact out of all proportion to its size."[24]

According to Vox Day, although leftists feign indifference to the boycott, his website experienced a cyber attack.[25]

Vox Day wrote:

It's rather amusing to see the many attacks by their own side the SJWs resolutely ignore as they go about their daily posturing and strike their latest outrage poses. Tor employees attack Tor's authors and customers alike, Castalia House has undergone six straight months of cracking attempts, Vox Popoli is now into its third straight day of a DDOS attack, hundreds of people emailing Tor Books have been accused of being bots by Tor employees even as as Tor supporters create fake tweets to feign public support for Tor, and yet science fiction's SJWs still preen and posture as if they're the good guys because a few hundred science fiction readers followed the rules and violated an unspoken gentlemen's agreement to which we were not privy and to which we never agreed.[26]

Personal life

Day is an American expatriate who lives in Italy with his wife and children.[27] He left the United States in the late 1990s after being unhappy with its politics/culture (especially its immigration policy).[28]

Day speaks English, Japanese, French, German and Italian.[29]

He is a member of Mensa, a club for individuals that scored in the top ninety-eight percentile on intelligence tests.

Meaning of the pen name Vox Day

"Vox Day" is presumably a play on the Latin expression vox dei, meaning "the voice of God". By using this nom de plume, Beale implies that he presumes to speak on God's behalf, while also showing off his knowledge of ancient languages and pun-making ability.
