There has to be pushback against this.
My overall impression of this podcast is highly negative. Now, if the Alt Right wants specifically and only to be “White nationalism for Millennials” then no problem (but if so, there’s no need for the doddering HBD crew, is there?), outreach to the young is a good idea that needs to be done by someone But conflating the entire “movement” with the Alt Right is an embarrassment. It’s cringe-inducing to anyone over the age of – what? – 35 or so. The degree of juvenile silliness here is outrageous. This podcast sounded like two twelve year old boys talking in a middle school lunchroom trying to sound tough by dropping “F bombs” every few minutes. Moronic jokes, “Kek” stupidity, Pepe…worse than I thought it would be.
Why did anyone ever think this Milo creature should have been tolerated for even one second in any association with the “movement” whatsoever? Was it really so difficult to see it would turn out badly? But Spencer and whatever specimen he’s talking to think Milo is good, let’s not have any “purity spirals” against an anti-WN Jewish homosexual drag queen-type. Oh wait, “if Milo tries to redefine the Alt Right, we need pushback.” But isn’t he already doing it? So how about pushing back? Gee, "why does Milo try to openly confuse what the Alt Right is?" It’s a mystery, it is! A Jewish homosexual is confusing what the Alt Right is, and trying to redefine it to “cultural libertarianism.” Why, oh why? It's pathetic.
Yes, I know some people in Der Movement do not like my criticism, but it is richly deserved. Der Movement’s “leaders” keep on making the same mistakes over and over and over again; they simply are incapable of learning. The fundamental mistake this time: being so desperate for any hint of support that you would latch onto, or at least tolerate, any sort of questionable specimen: Jewish queers, Internet trolls who openly mock you with their memetic games (and chameleon-like personas), the neckbeards and Nutzis, the “SuperHitlerSS1488” types who are either lunatics or infiltrators. Yeah, yeah, let’s “debate” about Milo, and have all sorts of blog posts and comments threads about him. That’s the ticket! Being a homo Jew who from the beginning, was trying to portray the Alt Right as merely online trolling snark by young conservatives wasn’t sufficient warning. He was giving you “free publicity” and all. That’s the ticket!
No worries though. The Catholics say a few “Our Fathers” and “Hail Marys” and expect absolution; the Alt Right only needs to post pictures of Pepe, yell “Hail Kek!,” and onanistically swoon over low-energy, debate-losing, grossly overweight, Negrophilic beta race cuck Donny Touchback, and it’s all OK!
Now, look, I have no problem with the Alt Right as an experiment (*), different things can be tried, and it may have attraction to degenerate Millennials. The problem is that just as Milo attempts to redefine what the Alt Right is, so is the Alt Right attempting to redefine White nationalism in the image of “Pepe” and “Kek.” If Milo represents the Alt Right, then the Alt Right is in trouble. If White nationalism is represented by this Radical Chic podcast, then White nationalism is in serious trouble indeed. If the Alt Right remains a separate ghetto of White nationalism, doing their thing, that’s fine, have fun and good luck and much success. But the outlook that White nationalism is the Alt Right is going to provoke real pushback from WNs who want nothing to do with the Alt Right, Alt Lite, Alt West, Alt Wrong, “meme magic,” “Pepe and Kek,” Jewish homosexuals, yellow supremacists and the whole HBD crowd, the VDARE boys, and the civic nationalists.
Der Movement may be upset with my criticisms, but these criticisms are meant to be constructive, they are born out of frustration. Among “movement” leaders there are people of genuine intelligence and ability, but they are squandering those traits because they are not being challenged, not being held to high standards, and not being subjected to different viewpoints and approaches. The “movement” is an echo chamber; as a simplification – but only a slight simplification – we can say that Der Movement’s leaders are all of the same ethnicity, same background and experiences, same viewpoints, and same approaches. Homogeneity, like endogamy, is a good thing; however, just like endogamy can go too far with incest, so can homogeneity go too far with conformity. Just like natural selection requires some degree of variation, political selection does as well. There is no selection in Der Movement because there is hardly any variation there at all (at least in America); “differences” in Der Movement are akin to what would have obtained if the 2016 election was between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. Der Movement needs some Trumpian “wrecking balls” to shake things up and initiate the process of real change.
*But this experiment is one of image and “marketing” approach, not a true difference in viewpoint and approach. The Alt Right, for all its peculiarities, still exhibits all the typical characteristics and fossilized dogmas of Der Movement, the WN wing of the Alt Right is still part of the “movement’s" echo chamber, the difference is that it presents all of the “same old same old” in a particularly juvenile, repellent, and asinine manner – and through its connections with those further to their left, opens up Der Movement to co-option.
