There’s been quite a bit of talk lately about what the alt-right — a movement populated by white nationalists, anti-Semites, and other assorted cranks — actually is. Recently, an article published to the right-wing website Breitbart was supposed to serve as a guide for establishment conservative types looking for answers. The piece’s purported author, Milo Yiannopoulos, was immediately denounced by The Daily Stormer‘s Andrew Anglin as a “degenerate homosexual.”
Over at Angry White Dude, another website sympathetic to white supremacy and anti-feminism, alt-right author/blogger Bill Matheson gave his take in an article titled “What is the Alt-Right?” Matheson wrote that the alt-right movement is, in essence, “an unapologetic purging of liberal idiocy” and a rejection of “socially acceptable right-wing factions.” Adherents of the alt-right are not alarmed by accusations of racism, misogyny, and homophobia, and, in fact, view them as “nothing more than the superstitions, the official heresies, of the modern liberal cult.”
And, unlike Milo Yiannopoulos and other mainstream conservatives who ignore the racism inherent in the alt-right movement, Matheson states outright that the “most ubiquitous feature” of it is “race realism” — or, as it’s otherwise known, scientific racism. “This is usually the gateway drug because, like actual gateway drugs, it is relatively mild and readily available to regular people,” he wrote. “An intellectually curious person might not immediately understand the diabolical workings of critical theory or the implications of the Bolshevik Revolution, but he can certainly recognize that blacks, wherever they are found in the world, create and dwell in dangerous slums; he can certainly read IQ, crime and income charts and draw the obvious conclusions.”
In addition to being a so-called “race realist,” another key feature of the alt-right is being, in Matheson’s words, “Jew-wise.” If people “acknowledge racial realities,” then the next step, he asserted, was recognizing that “it is Jewish intellectuals and activists” who are behind the “current equality lunacy that is destroying the West.” It is a movement of “hard-headed Western pragmatism,” which is why GOP front-runner Donald Trump, “the ultimate pragmatic white man,” is beloved by the alt-right and hated by “Jewish opinion-shapers and operatives.”
And its adherents are “sometimes unwittingly, harking back to a time when race realism, traditional values and being ‘Jew wise’ were the most basic common sense” — something Matheson argues the “white world” must “rediscover,” lest white people be “forced out of all the institutions our ancestors created, and then displaced and replaced in all of our homelands.”
Yes, as it turns out, the alt-right is about white supremacy (or, at the very least, separatism) after all. And no amount of sycophantic bullshit from mainstream conservative publications (*cough* Breitbart) will change that.
The alt-right, in the simplest terms, is an unapologetic purging of liberal idiocy. As the name indicates, the movement is an alternative to a right-wing that has become an open farce as it tries to adapt itself to modern moral fads. Whether paleoconservative, libertarian or mainline Christian Republican, all socially acceptable right-wing factions, in order to be socially acceptable, studiously honor the conclusions of the Civil Rights Movement, feminism, and the youth culture of the 1960s and ’70s. All socially acceptable right-wing factions have white flags at the ready in case anyone in their general vicinity happens to utter the word “Racism.”
This is where the main distinction is made. Leftist scare-words are not cause for alarm among alt-righters. “Racism,” “misogyny,” “homophobia,” etc. are seen by members of the movement as nothing more than the superstitions, the official heresies, of the modern liberal cult.
The most ubiquitous feature of the alt-right is race realism. This is usually the gateway drug because, like actual gateway drugs, it is relatively mild and readily available to regular people. An intellectually curious person might not immediately understand the diabolical workings of critical theory or the implications of the Bolshevik Revolution, but he can certainly recognize that blacks, wherever they are found in the world, create and dwell in dangerous slums; he can certainly read IQ, crime and income charts and draw the obvious conclusions. And once the curtain is pulled back on immutable racial characteristics, another question is raised: If whites, blacks, browns and yellows are after all fundamentally different, then why is this very basic truth denied at all the key points of our society, from government to academia to media?
For the alt-righter, this soon becomes the central question. Who is working so hard to conceal the most essential realities of the human condition from Western man?
In answering this question, we find another salient feature of the alt-right: being “Jew wise.” If we acknowledge racial realities, and then peel back the next layer, we learn that it is Jewish intellectuals and activists who are behind the current equality lunacy that is destroying the West. It is Jewish figures who promote anti-white rhetoric, imagery and theories in the media, and it is Jewish theorists who designed the social justice cult ruining young people by the million.
In fact, the fault-line that has opened up in the current American right separates Jewish-influenced, liberalized “conservatism” from hard-headed Western pragmatism. Trump, of course, is the ultimate pragmatic white man, which is why he is a favorite of the alt-right and almost universally loathed by Jewish opinion-shapers and operatives. The rift in modern conservatism, at its most basic level, is between white people who feel it is time to circle the proverbial wagons, and neocons and “cuckservatives” who say that national borders and the U.S. job market should not be priorities for “real conservatives.”
. . .
The difference between the average, disgruntled, blue collar right-winger and the alt-righter is a difference only in recklessness. The alt-righter has worked out the math and understands that he has nothing to lose. If the past 60 years of leftist madness was not enough, Western governments deliberately flooding Europe and the U.S. with ultra-violent, low IQ groups is final proof of an overarching anti-white agenda. Mainstream conservatives sense this but only have the nerve to address the agenda’s outward effects—to argue against one after another “misguided” leftist policy. The alt-righter says no, the left’s agenda is too consistent for mere miscalculation; these policies signify nothing less than warfare carefully planned and carried out against whites. And, having arrived at this conclusion, the alt-righter dispenses with PC self-policing and seeks to strike the root of the problem–seeks to discover just who is prosecuting this war, and why.
The common denominator for the alt-right is a resetting of the philosophical clock to some time before 1900. The two World Wars, in combination with critical theory, have created a climate of suicidal white guilt in the West, and this is what the alt-right is changing. Members of the movement are, sometimes unwittingly, harking back to a time when race realism, traditional values and being “Jew wise” were the most basic common sense—or at least not paralyzing taboos. The white world must rediscover this sort of pragmatism if we are to avoid being forced out of all the institutions our ancestors created, and then displaced and replaced in all of our homelands.
