    Thank you, inva, that's cheering.

    It's possible I'm being too gloomy and that that's a function of me looking with dread at the works of the right - and partcularly the numbers of people who follow and engage with right wing (and increasingly with extreme right wing) social media accounts.

    I've tried to become more active myself in support of my beliefs now, and that's, in itself, a personally positive step.

    Thanks for the links. I follow some of these people and I’ll check out some of the others you mention. There are a few decent youtubers but the alt-right/alt light folks seem to be the largest channels these days. I suspect YouTube is skewed in favour of the right as a platform, not just because of ad revenue but also because it favours individual users abilities rather than the collectivist energies that the left seeks to cultivate.

    She worshipped Hitler, she didn't admire him. She literally thought he was a historical avatar. And she's not really being rehabilitated, she's been key to esoteric Hitlerism since her original rediscovery in the 70s followed by pirate editions of her work but the holocaust denier zundel. Her name is more dropped than playing any real role as very few people read her mystical drivel. The same with the other big one for this tradition serrano. Even evola is more read than either of them. And very few actually bother with him. Goodricke-clarke did a pretty good biography of her.

    The nazi obsession with the occult is too often overlooked IMO. It's a fascinating topic, YT is full of docs on it, it lends itself to sounding conspiratorial and linking into a lot of stuff that CTists go on about but it's all pretty well founded too. The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw huge fascination in the occult. It may be fairly clunky but for me an obsession with occult stuff is a key dividing line between garden variety fascists and more bona fide nazis.

    when it doesn't, these rightwingers will
    1: take credit for preventing it and saving america and/or
    2: insult "the left" for not having the bottle actually to do something forceful (but if "the left" does do something forceful, they're "violent" and "thugs")

    Milo has a new job after Mercer dumped him.

    He's got a column with the Daily Caller, Tucker Carlson's conservative "news" site.

    Ha! Indeed!

    Milo has now been sacked by the Daily Caller and the editor who hired him has also been sacked. Sad.

    AntiFa supersoldiers are currently burning the White House down while high on Brain Force pills.

    That's what I heard anyway.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    The only ninja skills most antifa have, is how adeptly they sink a pint of beer in the pub.

    I've often wondered, while out on an Antifa action, if I can squeeze one more pint in before we leave the pub.

    Then I realise - shuriken!

    Arrogant condescending stupid prick shocker! And watching that it seems (as far as you can tell) that he is actually sincere in his beliefs. (Obviously I don't use that "sincerity" as praise, but having not really seen him speak before I thought it might come across that it was some sort of pose in order to fleece racists.)

    Is there any indication of who the laughing crowd are?
