Odds and ends.
I’m not sure the conference “shrugged off” anything given that an attendee was assaulted and then, on top of it, got into legal trouble, but what they hey, right?
And Spencer is a big boy and all, and can do as he pleases, but I note he has completely ignored the advice of this blog to eschew the Alt Wrong, and instead speaks at a conference organized by those who threw him under the bus for Jewish interests, with fellow speakers including someone who engaged in bemused schadenfreude with a Jewish correspondent over the possibility of Spencer getting shot. I’m not very confident about the judgment of Alt Right leadership, but these guys are young; maybe they’ll mature with age.
This analysis was disappointing. Panhandling Brimelow and scum like Derbyshire are enjoyable? Derbyshire talks science?
One could of course take a “glass half full” approach and say that having more radical folk like Spencer and Friberg speak was maturation on the part of the Alt Wrong itself; but any conference that features the likes of Derbyshire as a speaker is inherently flawed at its deepest foundations.
One could also argue that both sides overcame personal issues to let Spencer (and Friberg) have a forum to promote the Alt Right (whether that’s a good thing is another question), and so all involved should be commended for putting “the good of the movement” above all else. Perhaps. But there are, as implied above, deeper issues at stake other than the merely personal. Loyalty and dependability, essential in a crisis – can people who so blithely “threw you under the bus” for something so inconsequential has “Hailgate” be trusted in the event of more serious occurrences? And how can the deep ideological divide be plastered over? What should hardcore WN supporters of the Alt right think about this dalliance with the Alt Wrong? Conversely, what will Jewish supporters of the Alt Wrong think about Spencer-Friberg speaking at Amren? In the end, do the Alt Right and Alt Wrong brands actually represent anything meaningful? Anything consistent? Anything that can be depended upon beyond the needs of the moment?
No surprise that Der Movement, including the ‘anti-immigration” alt Wrong sites, hasn’t had anything to say about this.
Question: will the good and great “alpha male” Trump, with his “unlimited pardoning power” do the right thing and pardon Arpaio? Or are we just getting to get more tweets attacking Sessions instead?
But, but, but…I thought we were all the same, race is only skin deep:
Current meta-analytical research suggests that different population groups have distinctive muscular adaptations…
An ethnonationalist response to EGI paradigm: “all our enemies are White, so we don’t care about racial solidarity.”
Putting aside the “who cares that we’ve all been ruined by two world wars, let’s indulge in more of the narrow, ethnonationalist retarded nonsense that caused our problems to begin with,” EGI can apply to the ethnic group as well as to the race, so what’s the point to the response? I mean, other than the obvious point that ethnonationalism, in the narrow sense exemplified by the above quote, is a curse on our race and must be unalterably opposed and, eventually, crushed into the dust.
