More evidence that the HBD faction must be eschewed.
Taylor of American Renaissance talked of the intrinsic whiteness, or European-ness of America as nation, and refuted the notion that defending the national heritage is “racist” or “white supremacist” (since East Asians, as he never tires of reminding us, seem to have higher average IQs).
“Never tires” is a bit of an understatement. “Breathlessly, with excitement” seems more accurate. And what’s wrong with racism?
People who had never heard of the Alt Right before now suddenly knew what a Pepe meme was.
And some of us wish we didn’t know.
So the journalists who showed up for the NPI press conference on Friday –from the Washington Post, The Daily Beast, Mother Jones, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, inter alia — knew they were at a watershed moment in American politics. Hillary was foundering, Trump had evened out the polls and would likely be the next President.
Likely? I mean, it’s possible, and the odds have improved recently, but…likely? At best, even money.
Regardless of the election outcome, the Alt Right was now something to be taken seriously: people like Spencer, Brimelow, and Taylor might well be determining public policy for years to come.
Dear god…no. I have nothing against Spencer, who represents the more healthy Alt-Right WN faction, but if you let the Alt-Wrong HBDers determine public policy, Asians and Jews will have the “whip hand” over Whites for perpetuity (is that a situation Derbyshire is familiar with in his own domestic arrangements?).
The JQ did come up eventually, as the press conference wound down. Each of the speakers was queried, directly and indirectly, on whether Jews could be white/European/American. And Taylor, Spencer, and Brimelow gave the classic answers we have come to expect.
Basically — Taylor: Yes, if some identify as such and share the proper values.
Sigh. The Alt-Right really needs to make some decisions here, and by “Alt-Right” I mean the WNs.
Spencer: No, because they regard themselves as different.
That’s very reasonable.
Brimelow: My answer is somewhere in between.
What is it Pete? A quantum superposition between “yes” and “no?”
“I don’t think our support of Trump is about policy, at the end of the day — it’s about style,” Spencer said. “We live in a fragmented, decaying society. We live in a society of moral degeneracy. We’re going to fight our way out it, and sometimes that means using the tools at hand. It’s going to mean unleashing a little chaos.”
That sounds familiar. Where have I ever heard that before?
