    He was playing the plantation owner. He actually lives with his mum and the money the state pays them in sort of crop-subsidy. I haven't watched the GY vid and prob won't. Esp as it was sold as being about poor white people in the US.

    Spencer's aim in that video was to provoke and belittle. Sincere dialogue is impossible with fascists. Fair play to Gary Younge for the way he handled it.

    Poi E Pessimism: a valuable protection against quackery.

    I’m not sure it’s a dividing line but rather the occult or any reference to a higher power is used as a form of divine right to rule. “God bless America” etc.

    the nazis who confess strong Catholic views seem pretty bona fide - or are you including the Pope & his legions as purveyors of occult mumbo-jumbo :hmm:

    he interviewed some very upper-class people in New Orleans - the GY thing seemed a bit of a slanging match tbh - whites built America - no they didn't slaves built America ...rinse & repeat ....the one where he gets slugged seems far more to the point

    Far-right tweeters lose verified tick

    Twitter has stripped several far-right accounts of their "verified" badge, after changing its policy.

    Among them are Jason Kessler who helped organise a far-right march in Charlottesville, and white supremacist Richard Spencer.

    English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson also had his badge removed.

    Twitter said the badge was being interpreted as an "endorsement or an indicator of importance" and said it would change the scheme.

    This is long but much more interesting than expected. An examination of who Andrew Anglin is and where he came from.

    The Making of an American Nazi

    I wouldn't have guessed he was into vegan cookies and acid before getting woke by 911 truthers and Alex Jones online.
    That's before he went and lived in a remote village in the Philipines, in pursuit of some back to nature purist living off the land fantasy, but that went tits up and he emerged from the jungle banging on about hitler.

    The French Origins of “You Will Not Replace Us”

    Benoist told me that, in France’s Presidential election, in May, he voted not for Marine Le Pen but for the far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who shares his contempt for global capitalism.

    What exactly is so 'alt' about the 'alt-right'?
    Aside from being relatively powerless and on the internet? :confused:

    Where is the fringe Jewish right embracing Neo-nazism?

    The Israeli government for a start. Not Neo-Nazism, but anything slightly left of that as long as it isn't anti-Israel.

    Yes true, the Israeli state embraces an authoritarian ethno-nationalism.

    That’s not the same as the ‘fringe Jewish right’ (sounding a bit dodgy there in itself), embracing neo-nazism.

    And where is this embrace happening as a consequence of the move to regard Jerusalem as the Israeli capital?

    The cartoon is really dodgy. I think my loopy old aunt who lives in a retirement community in Florida is an example of a 'fringe jewish right' though, she and friends thought it was worth giving Trump a chance because he might be 'good for israel', that sort of thinking.

    My Oma was (apparently) delighted that me and my siblings all sprouted blonde hair early on, but was devastated when my brother and I reverted to type with wiry black jewfros

    bimble i agree it's dodgy but it was retweeted by @IfNotNowOrg an American predominantly younger group of Jewish people opposed to many of Israel's policies as an example of such dodgyness.

    Have found myself watching this guy today, for no good reason.

    (I assume this is the best thread for it)
  24. Nylock

    Nylock I hate 'these days'...

    In case anyone doesn't know who this guy is, Steven Crowder is a conservative 'libertarian' commentator...

    Some highlights if you want to save 17 minutes of your life:

    He's a first amendment evangelist.
    9 minutes in he describes Canada as 'socialist' and then goes on to make it out to be some sort of quasi-totalitarian state.
    He agrees with Trump on a load of policy stuff but 'doesn't like him'....
    Closes with rubbishing the democrat position on proposed hate speech legislation.

    There's other stuff in there but those are some of the 'high' points.

    Just came across a little thing about Nick Land, describing him (positively) as a Neoreactionary and part of the
    Dark Enlightenment - Wikipedia
    news terms to me so thought id share...part of the mindscape of the new ("alt") right

    Amtrak terror suspect also attended "alt-right" event in Charlottesville, according to FBI

    No one should be surprised to find this in rural parts of the country.

    Crowder is very big on YouTube - he has a little crew who think everything he says is hilarious. He also has a thing about costumed infiltrations and seems to love dressing up in women's clothes.

    He is not very good at anything.

    I suppose that's not true - he is good at attracting attention and money.
