Hail Trump: A Year Later

Hail Trump was a year ago.

It has also been a year since the beginning of the Twitter purge of the Alt-Right, Donald Trump’s disavowal of the Alt-Right and the beginning of the public feud with the Alt-Lite. This moment was the peak of the Alt-Right’s relationship with Trump.

At the time, I believed that the attacks on Richard Spencer were exaggerated. A year later, I still believe that. It was the first clear sign that the Trump administration and the Alt-Lite were going in one direction and the Alt-Right was going in another. The Alt-Right was going to remain an explicitly racial movement. It wasn’t going to be marshalled into a Trump cheerleading squad.

By the beginning of 2017, it was clear that the Overton Window had shifted. The fight over the Deploraball had shown that the new line in the Trump administration was going to be homosexuals are in and racists are out. This had been telegraphed throughout the campaign with the repeated disavowals of White Nationalists in contrast to the warm embrace of homosexuals.

I still don’t believe that the Hail Trump moment had anything to do with this. Instead, I think it reflects a deep ideological difference between civic nationalism and racial nationalism. A year of fighting with the Alt-Lite has revealed that it is fundamentally nothing more than warmed over conservatism and libertarianism. It is the same old conservatism with better marketing on social media. These people are vultures who steal our content and attempt to monetize and channel our energies.

I began to smell a rat around the same time last November. As I recall, the first sign was the news that Anthony Scaramucci was part of the Trump transition team, but I became truly alarmed when Gary Cohn was selected to head the National Economic Council. We would later learn this was the beginning of the emergence of the Jared Kushner faction. The Cabinet picks were announced and it was a full slate of CEOs, generals, big donors, establishment hacks and conservative throwbacks. In particular, the choice of Andrew Puzder for Labor Secretary (he was never confirmed) didn’t sit right with me. The staffing of the Trump administration for smaller positions skewed even more one sided.

The Trump administration was Donald Trump’s creation. President Trump surrounded himself with family, with “winners” and people he perceived as being useful like Mitch McConnell’s wife. It is clear the man isn’t an ideologue and didn’t give much thought to detail. He delegated those tasks to others and most of those people were members of the corporate and political establishment he had ostensibly overthrown in the 2016 election. It was Reince Preibus’s idea to do healthcare reform.

Before Trump was even sworn into office in January, we knew that all of 2017 would be squandered on pushing the Ryan agenda of healthcare and tax cuts:

This was waved away at the time as “you’re black-pilling me, bro.”

In hindsight, a number of factors produced the year that has since passed: Trump’s lack of an ideological core, nepotism and delegation of power, his instincts as a New York social liberal, the “winners” he surrounded himself with in the Cabinet, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the True Conservatives on Capitol Hill and the intensity of the Democratic resistance. The “nationalist-populist revolution” lasted for about a month, faded and ended when Steve Bannon was fired in August.

It has come to this:

And this:

These two images juxtaposed side by side tell us something important about the Trump administration. Candidate Trump was very useful for us. President Trump not so much.

Latvia: Thousands Participate In Annual Independence Day Torchlight Parade

Beautiful.

I wish we could do things like this in our country. These Poles and Estonians are much better LARPers than we are in the United States. We will get thousands one day!


Note: In neighboring Estonia, the Soldiers of Odin also hold torchlight marches.


The Twitter Purge

I knew Twitter was over when Baked Alaska was banned.

In the months since Charlottesville, Baked 2.0 had gone back to being a Trump supporter and a normie. He wanted to preach peace and be left alone to play video games. He had gone out of his way to be as inoffensive as possible. Nevertheless, Baked 1.0 had committed the unforgivable sin of raising the Jewish Question and attending the #UniteTheRight rally in Charlottesville.

The same afternoon Twitter stripped Jason Kessler, Richard Spencer, James Allsup, Tommy Robinson and Laura Loomer of the verified blue checkmark status. By itself, this is a meaningless cosmetic change but the “Twitter Trust and Safety Council” spearheaded by the ADL is rolling out a bunch of new rule changes which include an “abuse and hateful conduct” policy and “violence and physical harm policy” and “hateful imagery and hate symbols” policy. These rule changes are set to go into effect over the next month and will effectively turn Twitter into another Facebook.

I’ve always said this was going to happen. It has been gaining steam since Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election. In a clear act of retaliation, Twitter purged a bunch of Alt-Right accounts in the immediate aftermath of the election and has been banning accounts ever since which aren’t engaging in trolling or harassment. There has been a similar retreat from free speech on Reddit and Facebook and other Silicon Valley crowdfunding platforms like PayPal and GoFundMe. This is all part of a plan the Democrats cooked up after Hillary Clinton’s defeat to deplatform “hate speech” on the internet by setting themselves up as the arbiters of orthodoxy and heresy.

Charlottesville didn’t cause this. It was an excuse to accelerate the censorship. Occidental Dissent had already been banned from PayPal, Disqus and Donately before Charlottesville. Facebook was already engaging in massive censorship. AirBnb was banning people before Charlottesville. Reddit was already purging Alt-Right communities. Twitter was also quietly purging accounts. The big story before Charlottesville was YouTube demonetization and Google rigging its algorithm.

In the final days of Twitter, we will look back on this and remember that people were shitposting as Groypers and sharing “It’s Okay To Be White” fliers. In hindsight, I am wondering if we ever used this medium to effectively communicate our message. I feel like we used it to great effect for bantzing, trolling and silliness and to get Trump elected. We invigorated conservatism and the result is going to be a huge tax cut for millionaires while we are purged from the internet.

After the Twitter Purge, I expect there will be a Great Migration to VK.com, Minds.com. Wrongthink.net, Gab.ai, Bitchute.com and Pew.tube. Are we going to carry on as before there?

State Review Finds Charlottesville Blew #UniteTheRight

Duh.

I’ve been to dozens of rallies and have never seen anything like the police response in Charlottesville:

“A state review of the police response to the chaotic white nationalist protest in Charlottesville this summer describes a confused command structure, a breakdown in communication, and uncertainty among officers about the “rules of engagement” with protesters.

But the review, presented Wednesday to a panel of public safety officials convened by Gov. Terry McAuliffe, does not directly address what those rules of engagement were or why police initially seemed to stand by as street fighting escalated.

State Secretary of Public Safety Brian J. Moran said those questions were outside the scope of the state’s work. He said it will be up to officials in Charlottesville to address them through their own investigation, which is being led by former federal prosecutor Timothy Heaphy. …”

Contrast with Pikeville, New Orleans and Shelbyville.

The leader of Black Lives Matter New York who was at #UniteTheRight said he had never seen anything like the policing in Charlottesville either. Both sides are suing Charlottesville for the same reason. The police stood around and didn’t even attempt to enforce a neutral barrier.

This wouldn’t have happened in any other city in Virginia. It happened in Charlottesville because the anarchist nuts in that town – who have reached a critical mass there – had spent the previous month screaming about “police brutality” at Charlottesville City Council meetings after the July 8th Klan rally. They were furious that the police were allowed to do their jobs.

If everyone who had been at #UniteTheRight had shown up in Lynchburg instead of Charlottesville, it would have been as uneventful as Shelbyville. The People’s Republic of Charlottesville has nuts like Wes Bellamy, Nikuyah Walker and Bob Fenwick on the City Council. Fenwick even thinks Charlottesville is a sovereign country with its own foreign policy and can sue “invaders.”

The “Capitol of the Resistance” is responsible for what happened on August 12th.

Europe’s Hard Right: Differences and Similarities

As promised, I have taken a hard look at the big march in Poland and compared and contrasted it to what we are doing here in the American South. My sense of it is that there are major differences between the South and Central and Eastern Europe, but that we could learn a lot from what is going on overseas to create a more religious version of racial and ethnonationalism.

Area

The American South is roughly the size of Western Europe or Eastern Europe. Poland is about the size of Arkansas and Missouri combined. France is slightly smaller than Texas. Hungary and Slovakia could fit inside Louisiana. Bulgaria and Romania could fit comfortably inside Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. Ireland is approximately the size of South Carolina.

Population

While there are 9 million people in Arkansas and Missouri, there are 38 people people in Poland. There are 28 million people in Texas and 67 million people in France. There are 4.6 million people in Louisiana and 15.2 million people in Hungary and Slovakia. There are 18 million people in Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia compared to 26.7 million in Bulgaria and Romania. There are 4.9 million people in South Carolina compared to 4.7 million in Ireland. Generally speaking, there are far more Europeans who are packed more densely into smaller countries than in the United States.

Race

Obviously, one of the biggest differences between the American South and Eastern Europe is that tens of millions of non-Whites live here and are a majority (Texas) or near majority (Georgia and Florida) in several Southern states. In contrast, 95% of Poland is ethnically Polish. There is an enormous racial divide that exists in the American South which has no parallel in Eastern Europe. France and several other Western European countries have large non-White populations though.

Jews

There are only 5,000 to 20,000 Jews left in Poland which is down from 3.3 million before the Second World War. Poland used to be the epicenter of Ashkenazi Jewry, but today that is New York and Israel. There are approximately 1,218,095 Jews in the American South over half of whom live in Florida which is about 17% of American Jewry. They are less than 1% of the South’s population, but their effect on our culture is vastly greater primarily due to their control of the mass media in New York and Los Angeles. Jews don’t have to live in close proximity to us to have a great impact on racial and cultural attitudes.

Religion

76% of Southerners are Christians. 60% are Protestants, 15% are Catholics and 19% are Unaffiliated. In contrast, 87.5% of Poles are Catholics. Both the American South and Poland are relatively religious except the South is Protestant while Poland is Catholic.

Economy

The American South is a wealthier place than Poland and has changed tremendously since the Second World War. It has a more advanced capitalist economy. We have a larger middle class. In some ways, Poland reminds me of the poorer, culturally stronger Jim Crow South. The lesson that Poles should take away from the New South is that nothing rots the moral fiber of a nation like prosperity. Once a nation becomes obsessed with money making, it can lose its own identity and cohesion.

Ethnicity

As we have already seen, 95% of Poland is ethnically Polish whereas the American South is has a large black and Hispanic population. At the same time, the overwhelming majority of Southerners are descended from settlers from the British Isles whereas Eastern Europeans come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds. We have one dominant ethnic group dispersed over a wide area whereas Eastern Europe is divided into several nations many of which have been bitter historical rivals. There is no Southern equivalent to Bosnia or Kosovo either which are Muslim.

Recent History

The recent history of the American South and Eastern Europe couldn’t be more different. Ever since the War Between the States, we have been Washington’s largest and oldest colony. We have been subjected to long running experiments in Northern liberal democracy and capitalism. We were unscathed by World War I, World War II and the Cold War whereas Poland was at the center of these conflicts. These 20th century ordeals with the Nazis and the Soviets remain fresh in Poland’s historical memory.

Ideology

Southerners have largely bought into the mid-20th century redefinition of Americanism as a “proposition nation.” We believe in civic nationalism now. Anyone with two legs can be an American regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, culture, ideology, etc. Traditionally, White Southerners believed that Dixie was a White Man’s Country, which was a combination of Anglo-conformity and white supremacy. In Poland, Poles continue to cling to the more traditional definition of the nation state as being based on ethnicity and religion which is the source of recent clashes with the European Union.

Identity

The American South existed as an independent nation for only 4 years. The great majority of White Southerners also identify as Southerners, but consider themselves to be “Americans.” In the US Census, we call ourselves “Americans” rather than Italian-Americans or some other hyphenated category. In Poland, Poles consider themselves Poles and Catholics first and Europeans a distant second. Comparatively, the level of ethnic consciousness among White Southerners is extremely low.

These are only the most striking differences between the American South, Poland and other Eastern European nations. Truth be told, we are not very similar peoples. The greatest similarity between the South and Poland would be the loss of independence to a more powerful neighbor. In the War Between the States, 1 out of every 4 Southern White men died in that conflict and our infrastructure was destroyed. The poverty lasted for generations and we were exploited as a resource colony by the industrialized North. The memory of that experience, however, has faded over time.

Could Southern Nationalists build a Polish-style nationalist movement in Dixie? There are significant differences, but I not so pessimistic for the following reasons:

  1. Polish Nationalists and other Eastern Europeans are using White Nationalist slogans and iconography. The Celtic cross has nothing to do with Poland. It is more associated with Britain and America, but it hasn’t stopped Poles from using it though. The same is true of the skinhead look of shaved heads and black jackets which spread from Britain to Eastern Europe. The calls for a White Europe aren’t that different from calls for a White America.
  2. The Independence Day March in Poland has always attracted other ethnonationalists from Hungary, Sweden, the UK and other European countries. It has attracted counterprotesters from Germany. The large scale clashes have been between nationalists and Antifa. We’re already starting to see the emergence of that here on a smaller scale. Is it really that different when White Nationalists and Antifa come to the South from the North or the West to support local ethnonationalists in a big clash in a place like Charlottesville, Virginia?
  3. If you watch the videos of the Nationalist Marches in Eastern Europe, you will see the same mixes of flags. National flags are used alongside a variety of organization flags used by fascist groups. In Ukraine, nationalists have marched with tiki torches. Again, how different is this from the South?
  4. What are the resentments that inspired the march in Poland? It was nationalism and the resentment of refugees, immigration, political correctness and a distant federal government in Brussels. More than anything else, it was a desire to stay Polish and Catholic and a fear of being swamped by a tidal wave of Muslim refugees. How is this any different from the resentments of Hungarians or White Southerners? Shelbyville was about refugee resettlement.
  5. Nearly half of White Southerners feel like they are under attack. As we have already seen, 6% to 10% of Americans identify with the Alt-Right or White Nationalism. In Poland and the American South, there is a similar dynamic where there is a hardcore cultural vanguard and a larger swath of the population which shares the same resentments and feelings, but which isn’t as radicalized.
  6. Poland has laws against hate speech and racism. In the American South, we have fewer legal obstacles to organizing. We also don’t have Antifa on anything like the same scale. There has been some censorship of our social media, but it is still much easier for Americans to get our message out.
  7. In Poland, the fear of being overrun by refugees and illegal aliens is inspired by what has happened to Western Europe, but this has already happened in the South. It has generated a similar backlash, but it has all been channeled into Trump and mainstream conservatism.
  8. Fascism has always been an international ideology. It took root in Germany and Italy, but it also took root in Spain. There were fascist movements in the UK, France and Romania. Poland would seem like an unlikely place for fascism to make a comeback. It is worth noting there are parts of the United States like Appalachia which aren’t that different from Poland in terms of poverty and homogeneity.
  9. For better or worse, we live in a globalized world. Nationalism has also been globalized. We interact with our peers in Europe on social media on a daily basis. Ideas spread across social media at the speed of a tweet. Geography isn’t a barrier to cultural exchange anymore. The proof of this is that we are reacting to the nationalist march in Warsaw while Europeans reacted to Charlottesville.
  10. The Alt-Right overreacted and misinterpreted Charlottesville:
  11. The clashes between nationalists and Antifa in Europe have been much more violent. Far more nationalists have gone to jail in Poland after fighting the police at previous marches in Warsaw. It hasn’t stopped the Independence Day March from ballooning from 10,000 people to 30,000 people to 60,000 people. It sucks that a handful of people went to jail in Charlottesville, but these things happen. If we continue to grow as a movement, we are inevitably going to have to deal with such obstacles. Vlaams Belang in Belgium was banned in a previous incarnation. National Action in the UK was banned. The leadership of Golden Dawn has been arrested in Greece. What are we bitching about in the United States compared to that repression?
  12. The bitching about the obstacles we have to deal with here is rich considering the fact that we have an easier time getting our message out than anywhere else in the world.
  13. Even if we all lost our middle class jobs tomorrow in the United States, we still wouldn’t be as poor as nationalists in many of these European countries. It is not so much doxxing and fear of job loss that holds us back as it is our own American individualism and materialism.
  14. The optics debate that arose out of Charlottesville and Shelbyville is a retarded American obsession. Neither of these mass events looked that different from similar events in Europe. The biggest difference was the suburban polos and khakis combination which isn’t a European look.  We only see that in America. Instead, the problem is Identitarianism being the measuring stick of nationalism. The obsession with optics keeps our events small and introduces an unnecessary class divide. A nation isn’t a fraternity or Chad Nationalism or a subculture. It includes old people and women and fat people and people with tattoos.
  15. Finally, there is this idea that we have to disavow or expel the more hardcore elements. It is worth noting that those people are having events in Europe which dwarf Identitarianism. Those people are organizing marches of 60,000 people that obviously “appeals to the normies.”

I’ve given this a great deal of thought and it seems to me the biggest obstacles to doing similar to Poland in the American South are three things:

  1. White Southerners are dispersed across such a vast area and the same is true of our supporters. In Poland, everyone lives within a space the size of Arkansas and Missouri. It would be much more easier to have large events if that was true of the South. It is more expensive to organize here and it involves more driving. That’s something we will have to deal with at first.
  2. White Southerners have bought into civic nationalism. The ideology is clearly failing and has created massive problems for us, but our sense of nationalism has been perverted since the 1960s. Previously, White Southerners had a strong sense of racial, cultural, ethnic and religious identity. This is why I have said Poland reminds me of the Jim Crow South.
  3. White Americans are more individualistic and materialistic than Poles. In Poland, the middle class isn’t nearly as large as it is here. We convert people to our ideas, but they don’t want to take the next step and become activists because of their careers. In Poland and Eastern Europe, there is much less to lose by being an activist because the social ladder is shorter.

My final observation: until around 2007, this sort of activism wasn’t common in Poland. The first march in 2009 only attracted 500 people. It might have been smaller than Charlottesville. It ballooned from 500 people to 10,000 people to 30,000 people to 60,000 people. This was the biggest event of the year, but there has been countless smaller events in other cities. ONR seems to be very active in the real world and appears to have bused people into Warsaw from cadres all over Poland.

Golden Dawn has a march every January to commemorate the Greeks who were killed in the Imia crisis in 1995. It is an annual event that attracts thousands of people. I don’t believe it has ever reached the size of the Warsaw march, but it looks very similar which shows the style of doing these things is the same but varies across Europe. The Poles adapted it around their Independence Day.

If we did something similar to Poland’s Independence Day March, it would have to be some kind of annual march in the South. The League of the South could use the Confederate Battle Flag, the Southern Nationalist Flag and our state flags. If other organizations came to participate with their own flags or normies turned up with American flags, it shouldn’t be a big deal. Mainly, I think if we were more active that we would grow and the biggest obstacle is just an unwillingness to be active.

There’s a lot more to say about the subject and this is only the first stab at it. I want to become more familiar with other nationalist groups in Europe before comparing and contrasting differences in ideology and activism in greater detail. In both Europe and the United States, there is Identitarianism which coexists alongside White Nationalist groups, National Socialist groups and ethnonationalist groups. I think I have already identified the most important different differences above.

At some point this has to go beyond bantzing, memes and It’s Okay To Be White fliers. When tens of thousands of people are gathering in the streets to express a grievance, it sends a much more powerful message. That’s not something that can be dismissed, laughed off or deleted from social media. As long as this stays purely anonymous and online, it can be wiped out on the whim of a CEO. It will also be distorted by trolls and shit stirrers who don’t any investment in our long term success.

Note: Here’s a recent example of what Nordic Resistance Movement has to put up with in Sweden. It illustrates how much easier it is to organize and do activism in Dixie.

Nationalist Marches In Eastern Europe

As the Hard Right coalesces in the United States, it is worth taking a closer look at how rallies and marches are done in Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe. It is worth noting the torchlight parade isn’t a foreign nationalist custom. We used to have them in the South before secession and after during Reconstruction. It is why the torches strike such a chord in our national memory.

Poland’s Hard Right Inspires White Nationalists Worldwide

The enormous nationalist march in Poland over the weekend has added new fuel to a debate over strategy and tactics going on in nationalist circles:

“BERLIN — There are few countries that suffered as much under the Nazis as Poland did during World War II.

And yet, more than 70 years later, it has become a center on the continent for the far right — and liberal critics say the government isn’t doing anything about it. In fact, they say, the Polish far right feels increasingly emboldened by what it perceives as governmental recognition.

On Saturday, an estimated 60,000 people marched alongside ultranationalists and Nazis to mark the 99th anniversary of Polish independence. As my colleague Avi Selk summarized, some of the protesters carried banners and held up signs that had a clear far-right extremist message:

“Clean Blood,” as seen by Politico.

“Pray for an Islamic Holocaust,” per CNN. …”

Here is what is so interesting:

1.) This annual march in Poland was started in 2009 by two groups, National Radical Camp and All-Polish Youth, and ballooned from a few hundred people into tens of thousands.

2.) National Radical Camp and All-Polish Youth are ultra-nationalist groups. The former can even be described as fascist or White Nationalists. They wear armbands and brownshirts. They engage in Roman salutes. They use Celtic crosses and talk about White pride. Many of them have shaved heads. They’ve even burned an effigy of an Orthodox Jew.

3.) In addition to the armbands, National Radical Camp uses its own organizational flag.

4.) National Radical Camp has women at its demonstrations.

5.) It is an explicitly Christian group. The slogan for this march was “We want God.”

6.) ONR is very fond of dressing in black.

7.) In their propaganda videos, ONR and All-Polish Youth members are sometimes dressed in plain clothes.

8.) There are Boomers who are members:

9.) We see fat people who are members:

10.) Finally, we see an aesthetic that is very similar to other Hard Right groups in Europe like Golden Dawn. The red flares have been used in Greece for years.

The moral of the story: ONR and All-Polish Youth are spearheading this sea change as a cultural vanguard. They were surrounded by a sea of normies on Poland’s Independence Day. The Polish government was also incapable of condemning the march because the Law and Justice Party is in power in Poland and nationalism has reached a critical mass there.

Poland hasn’t embraced fascism or Neo-Nazism so much as the Polish government is indifferent to the existence and rising influence of these groups. You don’t see the cucking, panicking and disavowing like we see in the United States, the UK or Germany. The average Polish patriot is like, “yeah, some of these guys are fascists, but so what? I don’t want Jews and Muslims in my country.”

Note: Matt Parrott has only scratched the surface of the differences between Poland and the United States. Poland is an ethnically homogeneous country of 38 million people packed into an area about the size of Arkansas and Missouri. It suffered the catastrophes of WW1, WW2 and the Cold War. It has about 3,000 Jews and its poverty and isolation has insulated it from the dissolving effects of Western liberal democracy and capitalism. Still, there is a lot of food for thought here.

Polish Nationalists March On Warsaw

In Poland, tens of thousands of Neo-Nazi LARPers from across Europe have taken to the streets this afternoon to celebrate Polish Independence Day:

“Thousands of far-right nationalists marched through Warsaw today, marring the country’s Independence Day celebrations.

The march organised by far-right groups was one of a number of marches organised in the Polish capital, which was celebrating Poland’s rebirth as an independent nation 99 yeats ago after it was wiped off the map for 123 years.

President Andrzej Duda and European Union president Donald Tusk, himself a former Polish prime minister presided over a formal state ceremony earlier in the day.

Yet today’s Independence Day march was the largest in recent years, overshadowing other state and patriotic events.

The far-rights presence at the event was visible for all to see, with some holding up xenophobic banners and chanting questionable slogans. One banner read ‘White Europe of brotherly nations’.

A demonstrator interviewed by state television TVP said he was on the march to ‘remove Jewry from power.’

Some marched under a banner which read ‘We Want God’, words from an old Polish song which Donald Trump quoted during his visit to the country earlier this year. Others spoke about standing up to liberals and defending Christianity.

Vast swathes of the crowd marched with the red-and-white flag while others let off red flares and firecrackers during their march. A banner depicting a falanga, a far-right symbol dating back to the 1930s, was also unfurled by a section of the crowd. …”

What will the normies think about this?

“WARSAW, Poland — A march organized by a group seeking authoritarian rule in Poland drew tens of thousands to the streets of Warsaw on Saturday in what organizers and critics say has become Europe’s largest nationalist celebration.

Saturday’s march, which coincides with Poland’s Independence Day, drew tens of thousands of Poles and members from far-right groups across Europe, from the Italian Fascist group Forza Nuova to Hungary’s Jobbik. The event started as a small demonstration by fringe radicals in the late 2000s by a group called the National Radical Camp, or ONR in Polish, which takes its name from nationalist factions active before World War II. …

Marchers lit red flares as dusk fell around 3 pm and they began their procession. Some carried the neo-nazi Celtic cross symbol, and a handful had white nationalist slogans like “White Europe of fraternal nations” and “Europe will be white or deserted,” Gazeta reported …

“It is about shifting the boundaries and shifting the norms,” Pankowski said. “I think there is an element of triumphalism [among the marchers] in the last two years. Maybe not, ‘We have won,’ but ‘We are winning.’”

Do you see all these Nazis with flares? Why do they have so many different flags? Why are all these fat people wearing black in the fall? It looks like a goon march.

Roy Moore Swats Away “True Conservatives”

I’m having flashbacks.

It is almost like I have seen this before on the eve of an election:

I can’t wait to vote for Roy Moore.

These desperate attacks including a plot to either postpone the special election, refuse to seat Roy Moore in the Senate, decertify the election or get “Big Luther” to play a write-in spoiler candidate have shown the folly of voting for anyone on the ballot with an (R) beside his name. This is the second time these people have shown they would rather lose an election than have a populist candidate win. It is something to remember next time you see Cory Gardner or John McCain on a ballot.

Note: I’m glad I didn’t say a word in support of Establishment Ed.

Christopher Cantwell Has Charges Reduced

The good news:

The bad news:

Well, this went better than I expected.

I didn’t expect any of the charges to be dropped or Cantwell to be released this afternoon. I don’t have any confidence in the judicial system in Commieville. Why on earth did DeAndre Harris and Corey Long get bond? How did Gorcenski and Goad get away with perjury?

Latino Victory Fund: We Will Double Down On Anti-Southern Ads

The Latino Victory Fund is celebrating Ralph Northam’s victory in the Virginia gubernatorial election and is promising to release more anti-Southern ads in future races:

“With Democrat Ralph Northam winning Virginia’s fiercely competitive governor’s race Tuesday night, you would think that would mean a sigh of relief for the Latino group that inserted itself into the last week of the campaign, drawing harsh criticism over an ad that showed a pickup truck with a Confederate flag and a bumper sticker for Republican Ed Gillespie chasing down minority children.

But Latino Victory Fund, which briefly ran the ad early last week, says it will instead double down on its strategy.

The group, which works to elect Democrats, argues that this type of messaging campaign serves to defend the Latino community against ads like one from Gillespie that highlighted the danger posed by MS-13 gang members, which the group said promotes suspicion of Hispanics at large. …”

Here’s why we hope they keep this up:

1.) First, Establishment Ed lost because of suburban White women and healthcare. If he had won every Hispanic vote in Virginia, he would have still lost by 5 points. Immigration was a winning issue for Gillespie. He ran anti-MS-13 ads and still managed to win 32% of the Hispanic vote.

2.) Second, White Southerners are going to look at these anti-Southern ads and wonder why Hispanic groups are playing identity politics and organizing to advance an ethnic interest, but it is immoral for us to do the same. These kind of ads will stimulate racial and ethnic consciousness among Southern Whites and make it easier for the Alt-South to say we are just playing identity politics too.

The Latino Victory Fund ad depicts White Southerners as racist murderers with nothing better to do than to terrorize immigrants. It is saying that politics is about tribal identity. Ed Gillespie is a mainstream conservative, but his MS-13 ad essentially said the same thing. Politically, this was a boring race between two establishment candidates, but culturally it could have downstream effects.


Southern States Continue To Dominate Activism

I brought this up in an exchange with Greg Johnson.

As far as events go, there isn’t much going on outside the South. The single biggest episode that comes to mind was a rally in Minnesota in May. Otherwise, the North and West have been devoid of activity except for some private events and appearances at Alt-Lite rallies in California.

The three biggest pro-White rallies of the last decade – Pikeville, Shelbyville and Charlottesville – have all happened this year in the South. In all three cases, lots of people came from the North to attend these events. It is not like there isn’t a demand for such events in those areas. We’ve managed to do something like a conference or rally in nearly every Southern state this year.

This is nowhere near the level that is needed, but it is a start. We’re going to normalize this sort of activism in the South. Several of these events – Shelbyville (Tennessee), Pikeville (Kentucky), Charlottesville (Virginia), Battle of New Orleans (Louisiana) and Spencer at UF (Florida) – were major news stories. UniteTheRight was the biggest rally we had ever done.

Why are we even debating American Nationalism when nothing is going on elsewhere? Everything is still underground in the North and West which makes arguing over flags pointless.

Memphis Address: The Rise of Nationalism

Editor’s Note: Here is an edited transcript of the speech I delivered at the Memphis Forum.

I would like to thank James Edwards and the folks of The Political Cesspool for inviting me to speak to you today. I’m honored to be here among such fine men and women many of whom I have known for years now. If you are here in this room, you were invited to be a part of something special. You are the tip of the spear of our movement. Give James a round of applause.

As I was driving up here last night, I heard the news that former president George W. Bush had given a speech on the rise of nationalism and the waning legitimacy of the American-led liberal world order which was created after the Second World War. I searched for a video of W.’s speech and watched it on YouTube. It was an amazing experience to watch the man who did more than anyone else in the world to shape my political worldview deliver a rebuke of the movement of which I have been a part of for the last 15 years. George W. Bush’s speech was a passionate defense of open borders, free trade and global empire and an attack on the rise of nationalism and populism in Europe and North America.

Having left Gainesville, FL, I had to drive through the night to get here. Less than 48 hours ago, I was in a van with Identity Evropa and reporters from the New York Times who were filming Richard Spencer’s speech at the University of Florida. Gov. Rick Scott of Florida had declared a “state of emergency” in Alachua County in anticipation of Spencer’s arrival in Gainesville. We’re on the same level now as a major hurricane strike. We’ve reached the point where we everything we do is national and international news.

This is why I am here today. When I was last here three years ago, we hadn’t risen to anywhere near this level of prominence. It was much easier back in those days when we were toiling away in obscurity. We could hold conferences in hotels without attracting much interest from the media. We could hold street demonstrations all over the South without generating much opposition. We could raise money rather easily and use social media without much censorship.

The world has changed tremendously over the last three years. We used to be ignored by our cultural and political elites and dismissed as irrelevant. Now we are perceived as a threat and the establishment is fighting back against us. Donald Trump ran for president and won the 2016 presidential election. Brexit happened. Nationalist parties have continued to gain ground all over Europe. The political, corporate and media establishment can now envision a world in which they have lost power.

In the last two months, three separate public opinion polls have shown that the Alt-Right or White Nationalism now has the support of 6% to 10% of Americans, which is about 13% to 17% of White Americans. A recent University of Virginia poll revealed that 31% of Americans strongly or somewhat agreed that the country needs to “protect and preserve its White European heritage.” The same poll found that 39% of Americans strongly or somewhat agreed with the statement that “white people are currently under attack in this country.” In a country that is only 63% White, this shows that our ideas have made deep inroads into White America and still aren’t close to hitting their ceiling.

To put this into perspective, the Pew Research Center has found that 10% of Americans are Business Conservatives (the sort of people who would vote for Marco Rubio), 12% are Steadfast Conservatives (the sort of people who vote for Ted Cruz) and 15% are Solid Liberals (the sort of people who would vote for Hillary Clinton). If the Alt-Right or White Nationalists are now 6% to 10% of Americans, the panic of the political establishment becomes understandable. We are not a “fringe group.” On the contrary, we’ve grown to the point where our self-identified explicit supporters are now one of the largest rightwing factions in America and our pool of sympathizers is roughly half of White America.

As in France or Germany, we’ve become a large enough force to destabilize the political system. This is harder to see in the United States than in Europe where nationalist parties are organized under their own banner under the parliamentary system. In the United States, nationalist and populist leaning Americans are folded in with the other rightwing factions in a coalition of unequals in the Republican Party, which makes us appear more marginal and invisible than we really are in the American electorate. There are about 19 to 32 million Americans out there who are willing to tell a pollster that they either strongly support or somewhat support the Alt-Right or White Nationalism. If everyone in the United States who shares our racial and cultural views moved to the same state, we would be about the size of Texas.

There are 198 million White Americans. This means that over 1 out of 10 White Americans who you see in everyday life explicitly identifies with our movement. Nearly 2 out of 10 will explicitly tell a pollster they oppose racial intermarriage. You can see how this is a major problem for the Republican Party which is under pressure from the growing share of the non-White population and the rise of White racial consciousness among their own voters. The Republican Party can’t win a national election anymore without our support, but it can’t win one by explicitly appealing to us either.

The old taboos have become unstable. It is challenging to convince 26 million people that they can’t organize to have a voice in a democratic political system. There are now more Americans who support the Alt-Right or White Nationalism than Jews and Asians combined. It used to be much easier to control us and distort our culture when the mass media was controlled by a tiny elite, but now the smartphone and social media have given dissidents all the tools we need to organize and disseminate our message. The mainstream media has also lost its legitimacy and is no longer trusted by most White Americans.

We know from sociodynamics that taboos crumble when just 10% of a population comes to hold an unshakable belief. This is the tipping point when an idea hits a critical mass and begins to spread rapidly through a population on its way to becoming the new majority opinion. This is what is happening now with the rise of nationalism in Europe and North America. The old establishment conservative parties are losing ground to insurgent nationalist challengers. George W. Bush and John McCain can decry “half-baked, spurious nationalism” and defend so-called “American values” and “American leadership in the liberal world order,” but they are the ones who are the fading force in American politics.

I realize this sounds somewhat hard to believe. There aren’t any Alt-Right or White Nationalist websites that get anywhere near that level of traffic. We’ve never seen all these people at political conferences. They aren’t coming to demonstrations. And yet, we know from the polling data that this stratum of the White American population is out there. Unlike the cosmopolitan, business oriented moderates who live in the suburbs, it is nationalist, populist, culturally anxious and racially conscious. It is more middle class and working class and concentrated in small towns and rural areas. We can see it in elections. If it didn’t exist, President Donald Trump would have never made it to the White House.

As we hover around this tipping point, things are getting weird. President Donald Trump’s election has caused a mental breakdown on the Left. It has created a reaction which has radicalized liberals and progressives and swollen the ranks of Antifa. The political, corporate and media establishment has come to rationalize and embrace political violence in a way which wasn’t true just a few years ago. The same UVA poll which revealed that 8% of Americans support the Alt-Right or White Nationalism also found that 8% support Antifa and 32% support Black Lives Matter. The liberal center is hollowing out and bleeding supporters to the Right and Left as our cultural polarization intensifies.

President Trump has struggled to advance the Make America Great Again agenda of sweeping, dramatic change he was elected on in the 2016 presidential election. He has been hamstrung by an uncooperative Republican Congress, Deep State machinations and a Cabinet in thrall to the failed ideas of the 20th century conservative movement. He has had to deal with a radicalized Left and a media which has flat out abandoned the ethics of journalism in order to drive politically charged narratives. The stalled legislative agenda on Capitol Hill has forced him to resort to culture war by Twitter in order to keep his nationalist supporters interested and invested in his presidency.

It was in this context that Charlottesville happened. President Trump’s election renewed the attack by anarchists, Black Lives Matter activists and local Democratic politicians on Confederate monuments. We organized the #UniteTheRight rally in response. The purpose of that rally was to protest these attacks on the identity, heritage and rights of White Americans. In Charlottesville, this took the form of the black supremacist Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy, his campaign against the Robert E. Lee monument and a city government which had drifted so far to the Left that it was in thrall to an anarchist mob.

We had several objectives in Charlottesville:

– We wanted to shift from raising awareness on the internet to real world activism and organizing.
– We wanted to unite the fractious pro-White movement in America and transform it into a cultural vanguard.
– We wanted to challenge the weakened taboos by holding the largest pro-White rally in a generation.
– We wanted to advance our own movement rather than betting everything on President Trump’s success.
– We wanted to use social media to create and drive our own narrative and recruit new followers.
– We wanted to create and build on real world networks in the South and kickstart their development in other regions of the United States.
– We wanted to show our enemies that we would no longer be content to gather in secret. We are honorable men who are willing to stand up and defend our rights, the heritage of our fathers and the birthright of our children.

The plan was to hold a European-style torch march to the Jefferson monument on the UVA campus. This would highlight the connection between attacks on symbols of Southern identity and impending ones on White American identity. We wanted to hold the #UniteTheRight rally in Lee Park and went to federal court to get the permit that would allow us to do so peacefully. We wanted to hold an afterparty to build trust and social bonds within our largely anonymous movement. As American citizens, we had every right to do this and with any other group it wouldn’t have been a problem.

In hindsight, we underestimated the fear and determination of our opposition: the commitment of Antifa to their violent doctrines, the intensity of #TheResistance mentality on the Left, the spinelessness of conservative politicians, the willingness of Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Charlottesville’s elected officials to defy a federal court order, the lengths to which the media will go to lie to the public and the raw power of Corporate America. The result was a comprehensive political, corporate and media crackdown on the Alt-Right and White Nationalism. It had been brewing since Trump’s election, gaining steam for months and it was underway before we even arrived in Charlottesville.

We unveiled our power level in Charlottesville in an unprecedented way. AirBnb cancelled our reservations and dehoused over 100 people. Expedia cancelled plane tickets. Uber banned several people using their app for transportation. Hotels began cancelling reservations for unrelated events. Domain registrars and hosting companies pulled websites in an unprecedented wave of censorship. Social media websites banned our accounts. Payment processing services like PayPal and Stripe escalated their defunding of our websites. This was going on before the dust even settled on August 12th.

We witnessed a total breakdown in American institutions in Charlottesville: a governor who issued a preplanned “state of emergency” to violate our First Amendment rights, the ACLU crumble under pressure, local officials conspire to unleash anarchy in their streets in order to shutdown a rally, police stand down and fail to do their jobs, the media edit footage of violence in order to mislead the public. There are powerful forces in American life which were determined at all costs to stop the #UniteTheRight rally from happening. They succeeded.

Now, we are being sued by the City of Charlottesville and several other actors whose intent was to create havoc and disruption in state and federal court. The goal of these high profile attorneys who have worked “domestic terrorism” cases is to use “creative litigation” based on Rconstruction era anti-Klan statues to strip us of our First and Second Amendment rights in order to prevent us from ever gathering again in public in such large numbers. The opposition had been content for decades to allow us to vent our frustrations in the anonymity of cyberspace. Griping about the unfairness of the world under anonymous pseudonyms isn’t a threat to their power. They are determined, however, to prevent us from doing so as proud, unreconstructed White men in the public square. We can look at PEGIDA in Germany and see how something like that can snowball into a mass movement.

Why is that? It’s because they want to keep you isolated and intimidated. They want you to feel like you are marginal and alone in your communities so you will keep your mouth shut, censor yourself and maintain their customs and norms. They want the public which increasingly sympathizes with our grievances to perceive us as these violent, fringe characters portrayed in their Hollywood movies. Above all else they don’t want us to realize how large we have grown or how powerful we could be in American politics if we were more active and organized than we are today. If we started challenging their norms in this environment, they might be weak enough to crumble.

We saw another example of this in Gainesville. An individual wearing a t-shirt covered in swastikas marched into a crowd of Black Lives Matter supporters and was punched outside of Richard Spencer’s event at the University of Florida. After the Nazi was punched, he was embraced and befriended by a black guy who just happened to be there and learned to choose love over hate. It has gotten to the point where the media is so determined to harm our public image that it will use stock photos from unrelated Klan events, as it did in Charlottesville, or even shoot photo ops and movies outside our events with actors who were hired to play their role in an anti-White narrative, as it did in Gainesville.

We’re trying our best to move forward in the real world while navigating around all of these obstacles which no other minority group in America has to put up with. At last count, we need our own private security force, hotel chain, social media platforms, crowdfunding and banking system, legal defense team and domain registration service. Supposedly, this is a free country, but as we have seen none of those rights really applies to our community. It is an ordeal to organize so much as a pro-White backyard BBQ or public meeting in the United States. I’m sure Jared Taylor and James Edwards can attest to this. Richard Spencer paid $10,000 to be allowed to speak at the University of Florida to be shouted down by a clenched fist mob screaming “Black Lives Matter” for two hours.

The only thing we can really do in response to this is grit our teeth and soldier on. We can organize flash rallies and private conferences for those of us who already know each other in the real world. Richard Spencer is going to continue his college tour and adapt the lessons learned at Texas A&M, Auburn and Gainesville. The League of the South will continue to hold public demonstrations in friendlier territory like the upcoming rallies in Shelbyville and Murfreesboro, TN next weekend. James Edwards will continue to broadcast great content on The Political Cesspool. We have bright people who are creating alternatives to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. We’re even developing our own alternatives to PayPal and GoFundMe and will soon be fighting back in court against Charlottesville.

It is going to be hard. We’re taken seriously now as a force in American politics. We’re facing more resistance. As the old saying goes, we are taking flak because we are over the target. It will all be worth it one day when we can bask in the glory of the role the few of us played in saving our entire race and civilization at a critical juncture in history. It is important to understand that we are never going to win without making mistakes. We are also never going to win without a fight with the people who are in power now. We must persevere, continue to stand up for ourselves, constantly learn from our experiences and always strive to fight our enemies more effectively next time.

It is important to remember this is normal. We are a demonized minority that has grown too large for the system to contain. It is going to attack us and punish us in order to steer us from the path we have chosen. The screaming mobs you see on television are human beings responding to social change. We’re making these people uncomfortable by publicly rejecting their values and that will continue until either we give in or they give up. The question is whether we have inner strength to survive this trial. Are we capable of pushing our cause across that cultural tipping point where resistance will dissipate?

I don’t think we have a choice. It will either be us or those other guys out there in the streets who come out on top in the long run. I don’t have to remind you what those anarchists and communists believe in and the changes that they want to see in this country. So for now, I ask you do what Dr. Michael Hill asked you earlier: to stand at your post, push forward, put your faith in the LORD and do your duty, come what may. These aren’t the times where we have the luxury of rest. We can’t rest when the fate of our race, our wider civilization and our own people, who are nearest and dearest to our hearts, hangs in the balance.

I’m not exaggerating when I say much depends on US. Thank you.

Patriot Front Torch Rally In Austin, TX

In spite of all the ink that has been spilled about American nationalism, Patriot Front is only group in the United States that is incorporating it into their activism.

They were in Charlottesville as part of Vanguard America. I met them in Florida at Richard Spencer’s speech in Gainesville. I don’t have the slightest problem with them. In fact, I have said in the past that their approach to the issue which draws a distinction between the American nation and the ideology of the American state is in line with our thinking on the issue.

Patriot Front uses the American aesthetic without ingesting the poison of civic nationalist ideology. They’re also determined to stay active in the real world and work well with others. Good for them. I expect we will be seeing a lot more of them on the frontlines in 2018.

Note: The Texas flag was a nice touch. I hope they use that one more often.

What The White South Thinks

Winthrop University has released a new public opinion poll about Southern racial and cultural attitudes in the 11 former Confederate states. I’ve included all the interesting results from the White South below. Feel free to look through the data yourself.

This data lines up with everything I have seen elsewhere: 1/3 of Whites support Black Lives Matter, 1/5 support Antifa, 7% support “white supremacy” and about 3% support Neo-Nazism. Meanwhile, 50% support the Confederate flag and monuments, 46% believe White people are under attack in this country and 31% support protecting and preserving White European heritage.

In the other polls I have seen (Washington Post, UVA, Marist), I have noticed a similar breakdown of explicit Whites (6% to 10% of the White population) and implicit Whites (1/3 to 1/2 of the White population). The argument over labels is exaggerated because White Nationalism, Alt-Right and Neo-Nazism all refer to the same stratum of the White population which says it doesn’t believe in racial equality. The only meaningful difference is the intensity of opposition.

The big divide between the hardcore nucleus of explicit Whites and the softer implicit Whites is over the morality of racism. The implicit Whites are willing to say Whites are under attack and White European heritage should be preserved, but they also say in public opinion polls that they believe in racial equality, support racial intermarriage, believe blacks should be allowed to live anywhere and that all races should be treated equally. Surprisingly, there is even a drop off in the number of explicit Whites who are willing to say this which leads me to believe a powerful taboo is at work here.

As for the American Nationalism debate, notice that Confederate monuments and Confederate flag have the same level as support as the Republican Party in the South. In Virginia, Ed Gillespie lost yesterday because the Republican Party is less popular than preserving Confederate monuments. Southern heritage is far more popular than the Alt-Right and nothing is lost by using the Confederate Battle Flag. 7 out of 10 White working class Americans see the Confederate Battle Flag as a Southern pride symbol. The same is true of 4 out of 10 White college educated Americans.

My takeaways:

– We should continue to use the Confederate Battle Flag. In fact, it will be easier for Southern Nationalists to capture the Confederate Battle Flag than the American flag.

– We should deemphasize bickering over divisive labels. I really wish all these groups would call themselves “populists” and “nationalists” instead of getting hung up on labels.

– We should incorporate a strong, masculine religious message into our activism.

– The optimistic mood about the economy is purely partisan and an illusion.

– We should continue to challenge weakened taboos.

– We need to talk a lot more about morality.

– We should continue to focus on issues which are already resonating.

Establishment Ed Loses Virginia Governor’s Race

I’m not surprised that Ed Gillespie lost the Virginia governor’s race.

I never trusted or supported Establishment Ed and expected him to lose. The only real surprise was that it wasn’t even close. Gillespie is a former RNC chairman and amnesty lobbyist for Tyson Foods. The idea that he suddenly cared about Confederate monuments and MS-13 violent crime was always laughably implausible. If he had won the election last night, he would have forgotten his campaign rhetoric by this morning and would have gone on to do lots of favors for big business.

The Washington Post exit polls showed that Confederate monuments would have won in a landslide. By 57% to 38%, Virginians thought that Confederate monuments should be left in place. 71% of those voters went for Gillespie while 27% of them went for Northam. Among the 38% of voters who thought Confederate monuments should be removed, 91% went for Northam and 8% went for Gillespie. In other words, voters who supported keeping the Confederate monuments found other reasons to vote for Northam who locked up the anti-Confederate monument vote. The NBC exit polls showed Virginians supported keeping Confederate monuments by a 60% to 36% margin. This included 95% of Republicans, 73% of Independents and 26% of Democrats. Confederate monuments was a losing issue for Ralph Northam who won the election by focusing on other issues.

Of the five issues that mattered most in the Virginia governor’s race, 39% said healthcare, 17% said gun policy, 8% said abortion, 12% said immigration and 15% said taxes. Northam had a 55 point advantage over Gillespie on healthcare. Immigration was a winning issue for Gillespie. He had a 48 point advantage with the 12% of voters who considered immigration their most important issue.

In the end, the 22 point gender gap with women sunk Gillespie. Whites were 67% of voters. Gillespie only won them by 57% to 42%. Non-Whites were 33% of the electorate. Northam won them by an 80% to 19% margin. The non-White vote in Virginia isn’t particularly large and the margin wasn’t remarkable. Instead, it was the suburban, college educated, female White voter living in places like the NOVA suburbs and Hampton Roads who was the decisive voting bloc. In the other Southern states, Republicans dominate statewide races because they win such a larger share of the White vote.

Hispanics and Asians were 6% and 3% of the Virginia electorate. Gillespie won 32% of Hispanics. Just 4% of the electorate were Hispanics who voted for Northam. If he had won the vote of every Hispanic in Virginia, he still would have lost by 5 points. 32% of voters were White women and they only broke 51% to 49% for Gillespie. If he had performed as well with White women as he did with White men (the pro-Gillespie margin was 63% to 36%), he would have won the election easily. Clearly, gender was more important than race and immigration in this election.

The moral of the story: Confederate monuments was a winning issue for Republicans, but White women care more about issues like healthcare than Confederate monuments and voted for Ralph Northam. It was Ed Gillespie’s TrueCons agenda which lost the election.

Note: This was the contrast in message which decided the election.


MLK FBI Files Vindicate White Nationalist Critics

Many years ago, I remember stumbling across the truth about Martin Luther King, Jr. at Stormfront, which for years has maintained a website called MartinLutherKing.org.

It was there that I first learned about the seedier side of Martin Luther King, Jr.: the plagiarism, the adultery, the communist affiliations, the ties to radical black nationalists, the orgies with prostitutes, etc. I later bought the Taylor Branch Trilogy which confirmed that the history of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement had been sanitized for mainstream consumption.

In one memorable incident, I recall reading about how the Rev. Ralph Abernathy, a close associate and successor of Martin Luther King, Jr., had been chased out of the First Baptist Church through the streets of Montgomery after his wife discovered he was keeping a mistress in his own congregation. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who was another close associate and protege of Martin Luther King, Jr., admitted fathering a love child with one of his Rainbow/PUSH employees. He was also sued by one of his employees who had to clean up the hotel rooms after his sexual escapades.

The worst was the Rev. James Bevel who played a leading role with Martin Luther King, Jr. in organizing the Children’s Crusade in Birmingham in 1963 and the Selma-to-Montgomery March in 1965. He was convicted in 2008 of incest and sentenced to 15 years in prison for molesting his own daughter. MLK allegedly spent the last night of his life having an orgy with prostitutes in a Memphis hotel room screaming “I’m f–ing for God” and “I’m not a Negro tonight!” while the FBI listened.

No one should be surprised by what has come out about the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the recently declassified FBI files. It has been floating around the internet for years and was even brought up in the Hollywood movie “Selma.” There is much more still out there including FBI recordings of MLK’s illicit sexual encounters which have never been released to the public.

The most damaging allegation is that the Jewish communist Stanley Levison fed MLK all his lines and approved everything he said because he was a “slow thinker.” In the 1950s, many American communists rebranded as “civil rights activists” in order to push their ideas into the mainstream:

Texas Heroes Chase Down, Shoot, Kill Sutherland Springs Church Shooter

Devin Patrick Kelley, the EVIL bastard who murdered 26 people at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX this morning, was chased down and shot dead by a local:

“Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, was leaving First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs after he opened fire on parishioners during mass when a local man grabbed his rifle.

Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Freeman Martin said that the neighbor, who has not yet been named, had ‘grabbed his rifle and engaged the suspect.’

Martin said that during the gunfight, Kelley dropped his Ruger assault rifle and got back in his SUV to flee the scene. …

As they approached a sharp curve in the road, near the 307 and 539, he said Kelley appeared to lose control and his car swerved off the road.

‘That’s when I put the truck in park,’ he said. ‘The other gentleman jumped out, and had his rifle on him. He didn’t move after that.’

Caddel added that Kelley was gunned down with a few feet from her boyfriend. …”

In Texas, a good guy with a gun stopped an evil guy with a gun. This is also what happened in Antioch, TN when Robert Caleb Engle confronted and stopped Emanuel Samson.

#Nov4ItBegins Target Practice

In Knoxville, Matthew Heimbach and some friends of ours celebrated the overhyped Antifa uprising with an overpass demo, some praying, a book burning and target practice:


The Future of Southern Nationalism

Southern Nationalism has a bright future.

In the comment section, I said I was going to address this subject in my next article. I had been planning to lay out my thoughts about this, but got distracted by the criticism of the White Lives Matter rally on the Nick Fuentes show. Palmetto Patriot has beaten me to the punch.

It has been a wild two years for Southern Nationalism. From the summer of 2015 until the spring of 2017, the rise of Donald Trump and the Alt-Right overshadowed everything we were doing. This only began to change around April when frustration with the direction of the Trump administration burst to the surface after the military strikes on Syria. Until then, I know that I was personally mesmerized as everyone else and absorbed by mainstream politics which reached a fever pitch and climaxed in General Bannon’s nationalist populist revolution in the 2016 presidential election.

Since April, the League of the South has participated in some form in Richard Spencer’s speech at Auburn, the Nationalist Front rally in Pikeville, KY, the Battle of New Orleans, Unite the Right in Charlottesville and the White Lives Matter rally in Shelbyville. This year has been remarkable for the fact that there has been a return to street activism and we have come into contact with so many other groups which we didn’t interact with previously. More than anything else, this is due to the rise of Antifa, the more polarized political climate and the embrace by our opponents of political violence.

New Orleans was a good example of this: Southern Nationalists, Patriot groups, Confederate heritage supporters, Alt-Lite civic nationalists and Alt-Right groups all coming into contact for the first time and getting cross with each other over ideological differences. The rise of a popular front was due to the common threat posed by Antifa. In New Orleans, there was also the Take ‘Em Down NOLA movement, and in Charlottesville there was a similar effort to remove Confederate monuments. This was resented by a wide variety of groups which came together at Unite the Right in August.

Southern Nationalism was swept up in this. It happened in 2015 after the Dylann Roof church shooting in the backlash against the removal of Confederate monuments. It happened again in 2017 when the Confederate monuments issue heated back again and the streets became more violent. I think it is a good thing that we now have allies and we look forward to working with them again in the future. No one should get the impression though that this is all we are going to be doing.

As the weather turns colder, we are going to have a series of League of the South public rallies. The first of these events is scheduled for December and more details on that will be released soon. I believe Trad Worker is going to be doing some of their own events as well in the Midwest or Appalachia. There won’t be another big Nationalist Front event until January or February at the earliest. In the meantime, we are going to do some of our own events which will focus on familiar themes.

Get ready, South Carolina. We’re coming back.

In hindsight, I am not sure if I would change anything about the last two years. I feel that President Donald Trump and his message of “Make America Great Again” needed to happen. It had to happen to finally show our people that the system will never be reformed, conservatism will never conserve anything and even when given absolute power Taking Back America isn’t going to go work.

There is no stopping the cultural polarization which is creating political gridlock. We’re growing apart as a nation and no amount of wishful thinking about Hope and Change or Making America Great Again is going to reverse that long term trend. We need to be embracing polarization and balkanization. Acting as a cultural vanguard, there is much the League of the South can do to spur it along.

We don’t need a million members to raise the question of Southern identity. What do we get out of the US Empire? What do we get out of electing weak politicians like Lindsey Graham? What happens after Trump tries and fails to Make America Great Again and our people realize there is no going back? Southern Nationalists are already playing a bigger part than ever in that conversation.

What comes next? Does the feral anti-White Left come back to power? If so, are we prepared to live under such a government which tramples all over our heritage and rights?

Nick Fuentes, Mike Enoch, Andrew Anglin, Hard Right

Editor’s Note: This is my response to a recent article by Andrew Anglin and Nick Fuentes who recently did an interview with Mike Enoch.

What is the Hard Right’s strategy?

I’ve called it the cultural vanguard strategy. We’re going to hold public demonstrations, assert our values like men in the public square and go from place to place in the South and Midwest, growing stronger along the way as we attract and gather more angry, alienated, disaffected White Americans.

The goal is to smash the existing taboos with blunt force and create polarizing social media spectacles. We’re going to normalize pro-White activism. This is what we set out to do in Charlottesville. The reason that Charlottesville was so powerful is because of the number of people who showed up. Unite the Right wasn’t a bad idea. We simply picked the wrong location to do it.

Why does the Hard Right hold rallies?

In order to be taken seriously, we have to be a real world movement, not a bunch of anonymous shitposters online indulging in a fantasy of revolutionary change. I said that Charlottesville was going to be the greatest triggering of all time. It was even more triggering than I thought it would be. The reaction to Charlottesville was unlike the reaction to all previous events because we demonstrated power.

By coming together in the real world, we create bonds of trust and solidarity which simply can’t be formed on the internet. We take people who have been converted to our ideas and make them invested in our cause. It isn’t enough to raise awareness. We’ve got to go beyond that. We also generate massive publicity which attracts the attention of new people who simply didn’t know that our movement exists.

Should we hold rallies on private property?

This isn’t a bad idea.

Before Unite the Right, we talked about holding a Whitestock type of event on private property. We simply didn’t have the time to do something like that in Shelbyville and so we put it off until 2018. It is something the Hard Right is going to do and it is already in the planning stages.

The private property event minimizes concerns about doxxing and violence. If Antifa tried to disrupt Whitestock, they could be arrested for trespassing. It is a good idea and something that works for softer supporters who are new and unprepared to stand with us on the frontlines. It accomplishes the goal of creating greater trust and cohesion. We’re not going to be taken seriously though as a closeted movement. If you don’t really mean it, you’re going to be ignored.

In the future, we will hold private property events in conjunction with our public rallies. We did this in Pikeville. In Shelbyville, we had a meeting at a state park.

I’m afraid of public rallies.

The Hard Right isn’t afraid of public rallies.

I’ve participated in over 30 rallies and Charlottesville was the exception, not the rule. It turned out that way because the police stood down and didn’t do their jobs. This was a failure of the local government. We’re simply going to avoid places like that or hold controlled flash rallies there. Unfortunately, we picked the single most liberal spot in the entire South to hold Unite the Right.

In Kentucky, Louisiana, Virginia and Tennessee, the rallies we had there generated a lot of publicity. It roiled the area and the state which was a good thing. The aim of Richard Spencer’s college tour is to do something similar. It stirs up an area and draws attention to our movement.

We can pass out fliers.

This is a good activity for softer supporters.

I’m not going to countersignal fliers. We’re going to start doing fliers ourselves. It is an action though that mainly generates local publicity. The opposition covered Auburn in fliers.

We should hold targeted flash rallies.

In Shelbyville, we planned to hold a flash rally at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch. The idea was to do a candlelight march, say a prayer at the church, lay a wreath and mourn our dead to show our love of our people. Unfortunately, a reporter leaked and Louisville Antifa caught wind of it. The last thing we wanted was a brawl with those idiots at a church and so we had to cancel the event.

I think private property events and flash rallies are a good idea. In Shelbyville, we originally planned to hold a private property event and flash rally in conjunction with our White Lives Matter public rallies. We can get stronger numbers when we do this in conjunction with public rallies. The catch with flash rallies is that you limit turnout to people who are already members of your organization. They also don’t have the same effect unless you come with significant numbers or target a very symbolic location.

Charlottesville 3.0 is a good example of this. The Identity Evropa flash rally earlier in the day at the Jefferson Memorial didn’t generate much attention. Going back to Lee Park had symbolic value. It was a charged location and a story which is why that flash rally got as much attention as it did.

There are three paths to a successful fascist revolution: military coup, foreign invasion, elections

This is false.

It might be true of fascist revolutions in Europe and South America. It isn’t true of American history. There have been two revolutions in American history and both were the culmination of intense polarization: the American Revolution, which separated the United States from Canada and the British West Indies, and the War Between the States, which separated the Confederacy from the Union in 1861.

The Southern fire eaters never created a mass movement in the 1840s and 1850s. They never took power in elections either. Instead, they helped to dissolve the Union as a cultural vanguard by fanning the flames of polarization. They intensified sectional conflict to the point that the two-party system broke down and the “irrepressible conflict” took on its own momentum after Bleeding Kansas.

In the 1840s and 1850s, the culture of the South radically changed. There was, so to speak, a metapolitical revolution in Southern identity. The 18th century civic nationalism of the Founding Fathers was displaced and gave to way to 19th century intellectual currents coming from Europe:

“Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth. This truth has been slow in the process of its development, like all other truths in the various departments of science. It has been so even amongst us. Many who hear me, perhaps, can recollect well, that this truth was not generally admitted, even within their day. The errors of the past generation still clung to many as late as twenty years ago. …”

The key phrase here is “errors of the past generation.”

The conflict with the Yankee opened the Southern mind to new ideas. Confederate nationalism was a blend of old Republican states’ rights theory, ethnic nationalism, 19th century racial science, and especially the rise of romanticism and honor culture. Greece, Rome and Medieval Europe were an inspiration to the slave-holding Confederacy as it shed itself of the leveling ideology of the American Revolution.

We should be investing our time in electoral politics.

WHY?

A year ago, General Bannon succeeded in his nationalist populist revolution. Trump was poised to MAGA … or so we thought. Fastforward a year later and the GOP Congress has unanimously condemned us, Trump signed the Charlottesville resolution and we are debating tax cuts.

The result of investing all our time in electoral politics was returning the same people to power with the same ideas and the same polices. The first thing that Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush did was tax cuts. The phrase “Make America Great Again” was used by Reagan in 1980.

Did Ronald Reagan’s landslide victories Make America Great Again? Did George HW Bush who presided over the creation of the New World Order? How about the 8 years of George W. Bush? What about the Tea Party? Finally, what has changed as a result of MAGA? Nothing has changed.

Republicans are doing what they always do. They run on cultural issues like gay marriage (2004) and illegal immigration (2016). Once they get in power, it is nothing but favors for banks, large donors, corporations, etc. That’s why Gary Cohn of Goldman Sachs became Trump’s top economic adviser. Doing the Tea Party over again and replacing one crop of cucks with another will change nothing.

Charlie Christ was establishment. Marco Rubio was Tea Party. Nikki Haley who took down the Confederate flag in South Carolina was also Tea Party. Many of the worst cucks in Congress have been there for only one term like Ben Sasse, Thom Tillis, Cory Gardner and James Lankford.

What are we talking about now under Trump?

We have people in hoodies and masks taping a piece of paper that says “It’s Okay To Be White” to doors of buildings. What does that say about conservatism? Does it say we are on the verge of Making America Great Again or rather does it say it has come to this after 50 years of conservatism?

Yes, it has come to this because decades of electoral victories which haven’t amounted to anything for us. The DOW Jones is doing great and someone, somewhere in a nice mansion in the Hamptons is making a lot of money. Wealthy people can look forward to a big tax cut. We’re not going to waste our time to advance the careers of more cucks who are just going to spit on us and call us ethnonationalist losers.

We should embrace Americanism and Americana?

Like, WHY?

I’ve already chronicled the history of this poisonous, destructive civic nationalist ideology which for the past 200 years has pushed the extremes of liberty and equality under democracy to its logical conclusion, undermining our culture and shredding the social fabric of our nation. By the 2000s, Americanism had been reduced to sportsball, jingoism, commercialism and the decaying universalism of liberal ideology. There isn’t a liberal democracy anywhere which isn’t dying like the United States.


Americanism has been a Star Spangled cancer for the White race.

The present controversy over shopping and sportsball isn’t a symptom of the strength of Americanism. On the contrary, it represents something that is clearly dying, as the remaining pathetic pillars of our national identity succumb to an intensification of our cultural polarization. We’ve lived to see the demise of Joe Six Pack and Sally Soccermom and big box stores which so many of us remember from the 2000s.

There is a strain of Duginism in the Alt-Right

As with the antebellum South in the 1850s, the perceived failure of Americanism is causing disaffected White Americans to explore new cultural currents. In the Confederacy, this took the form of 19th century racial science and the culture of honor which had been inspired by Sir Walter Scott’s novels. The transatlantic conveyor belt of ideas never stopped with the American Revolution.

These people want to destroy America

America is going to fall apart as a result of its own civic nationalist ideology. When you base a nation on abstract ideas and the notion that a country can be a miniature United Nations, the result will be that “Americans” (these being people who have the right documents and who stand with two legs on our Magic Dirt) will fight bitterly over ideas and all other sources of division.

Aesthetics

Is cornball Americana really the best way to go? Who are we trying to appeal to anyway? Let me guess … the eternal normie conservative. Fuentes thinks we should spend all our time pandering to blue collar Catholic voters in Janesville, WI. We don’t have any confidence in reforming the system. Instead, we need tough and hard people which break the taboos and force the issue into the public square because there aren’t any politicians who are going to do so.

We need to be a united political movement

To do … WHAT?

Do we need to be united to not talk about race and advance the careers of Josh Mandel and Joy Villa for they can get elected to Congress and MAGA? How did all these based minorities like Tim Scott and Nikki Haley work out for us? What is there to gain by propping up conservatism with memes? Is there a single one of those cucks who was strong enough to vote against the Charlottesville resolution?

Charlottesville was a turning point

We agree.

After Charlottesville, we saw who was strong enough to move forward and who couldn’t handle the pressure and went back to being normies or retreated into conservatism. We need more such clarifying moments because such trials reveal things about our character like when Andrew Anglin said on his WordPress blog he had been a character and this is all a joke.

What was the point of White Lives Matter?

I’ve already explained the main three reasons: draw attention to refugee resettlement and the Emanuel Samson church shooting, turn the page on Charlottesville by holding a peaceful event and foster cohesion and solidarity within our own coalition. In addition, we wanted to show the world that not everyone had backed down after Charlottesville, and that the Hard Right is here to stay.

I’m having problems understanding the message you were trying to send

No one else had this problem. The message was #WhiteLivesMatter. It trended all day on Twitter in the United States. It wouldn’t have happened otherwise. Also, the event was known throughout Tennessee as “White Lives Matter,” and the major headline was “White Lives Matter Rally Ends Peacefully.”

Your optics were terrible

We’re not trying to reach the same audience.

vs.

vs.

vs.

The Hard Right optic we are going for is “I don’t want to fuck with those guys.” Those guys look like the sort of people who will kick my ass, not fix my computer. I’m worried about all these violent leftists that I see on television. I want to join a pack of wolves, not go to CPAC.


Did Tyler Durden want to become the wage cuck Narrator in Fight Club?

Normies want to escape from their boring, meaningless lives. They don’t want to be reminded of their workplace. This is a big theme in movies and television shows in popular culture.

Of all the optics we can choose from in popular culture, why pick the most boring, banal one out there? Why pick the aesthetics of The Office or cornball Americana?

The news coverage was bad

No, the news coverage really wasn’t that bad considering. The headline was “White Lives Matter Rally Ends Peacefully.” There was far more negative coverage on Twitter. The Tennessean and New York Times stories were pretty good and much fairer than what I saw elsewhere.

Countersignaling

We’ve seen this with conservatism. This guy is to the right of me and has said something controversial. I disavow, I disavow … leave me alone. I don’t think we are going to get anywhere by policing our associations, weak optics and showing lack of confidence in our ideas to pander to normies. The weakest approach of all is to not even be explicitly White and get coopted into conservatism.

What is the tactical value of holding rallies?

You’re talking about us, right?

This will hurt anyone running for office

SO WHAT?

Are any of these people going to embrace White identity politics? The answer is no. That’s a ball we are going to have to move by ourselves as a movement. As things stand today, Trump talks about every group out there except the Whites whose votes he knows that he can take for granted.

I just can’t get behind all this European stuff

Torch marches are not European stuff. They used to be commonplace in the South. The same is true of White identity politics. We used to have more interesting politics before conservatism. Suppose we did something like whar Golden Dawn does every January in Greece. Who would the country be talking about? Would it be something like this or a piece of paper?

Note: I hope our next event doesn’t give these people a heart attack!

Shelbyville: Cultural Vanguardists vs. Cultural Mainstreamers

White Nationalism is making a comeback.

The Hard Right rally in Shelbyville, TN was the second largest White Nationalist rally in the last decade. The previous rally in Pikeville, KY in April was the third largest rally. The biggest rally was Unite the Right in Charlottesville and that was due to our participation:

“Despite canceling their second protest Saturday and fighting within over public image, the “White Lives Matter” rally in Tennessee last weekend was the largest public white nationalist gathering in years, outside of Unite the Right in Charlottesville.

The crowd of roughly 200 far-right demonstrators — representing white and southern nationalist, neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups — is the first large gathering the movement has assembled since the rally in August, according to the Anti-Defamation League. …

“The big question after Charlottesville was whether all this had been shut down,” Griffin said of the large rallies. “There was this narrative developing that the alt-right was finished, and we were not doing any events.”

Griffin said he didn’t expect the Shelbyville rally to draw quite as many participants as it did.

“This was just supposed to be like a rebound rally for us, and it was a lot bigger than I thought it would be,” Griffin said. …”

It was a good rebound too.

The headline of the event was “White Lives Matter Rally Ends Peacefully.” That’s what we wanted to accomplish more than anything else. We wanted to prove that the Nationalist Front wasn’t responsible for the outbreak of violence in Charlottesville. This was due to the failure of the Charlottesville Police Department to keep both sides separated on August 12th.

We can go elsewhere and hold public rallies and not have these issues. That’s why we specifically chose to hold our event in Tennessee. There has never been any issues at our events in Tennessee. We have a high opinion of Tennessee law enforcement which has done a good job preventing Antifa violence. There was none of the chaos that we saw in Charlottesville in Shelbyville.

We also wanted to draw attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting in Antioch which we felt had been neglected by the national media.

“Consecrate my sword and strengthen the arm that wields it,” began the prayer of Michael Hill, the founder of the League of the South. The rally was, belatedly, set to begin.

“Render me a willing implement of justice and mercy to my people and one of terror to your enemies, O Lord,” he continued, as men and women in Confederate flag capes, Wehrmacht helmets and eye goggles, SS-insignia collar pins and black Make America Great Again caps, knelt or stood silently in the parking lot behind city hall.

“Give us the victory for your honor and glory’s sake. In the name of Christ Jesus our savior we pray, amen!”

And with a cry of “Amen!” the 150 or so white nationalists began to march. …

The evening’s plan was then announced — a vigil at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ, which sits on a wooded corner in the quiet southeast Nashville community of Antioch. On Sept. 24, the police said, Emanuel K. Samson, 25, showed up there as a Sunday service let out and shot eight people, one of whom died. The victims were all white. Mr. Samson was black, brought here as a refugee from Sudan when he was a child. At the church, the plan went, they would stand with candles and the second white nationalist prayer of the day would be delivered …”

Antioch was our real target.

The plan was to go to Shelbyville and Murfreesboro, put a spotlight on refugee resettlement and express righteous anger at the federal government. In the evening, the plan was to go to Antioch and have a candlelight vigil at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ to show our grief and love for our own people. The plan was foiled though when Louisville Antifa caught wind it.

In Shelbyville, we accomplished what we had set out to do in Charlottesville. In the months before Unite the Right, I started to call it The Cultural Vanguard Strategy:

“3.) White Nationalism was focused on politics. It split into two camps. The mainstreamers wanted to moderate their rhetoric to appeal to normies and win elections at the ballot box. The vanguardists wanted to remain extreme and wait for the inevitable collapse of the system.

4.) In contrast, the Alt-Right is focused on culture. It believes in changing the cultural terrain which underlies “mainstream” politics which opens up new possibilities. This isn’t really a mainstreamer or vanguardist strategy because the Alt-Right isn’t trying to flatter normies or disengage from politics. The only thing that matters is breaking the “mainstream” cultural consensus.

5.) In order to do this, the Alt-Right only needs to build a supercharged, highly active dissenting cultural vanguard. The vast majority of human beings are naturally passive conformists. As the movement grows in size and strength, it will psychologically become more attractive to different personality types. We’re also telling the truth and giving White people their sense of identity back. The system we have now is due to unnatural repression and the resentment that breeds will work in our favor.

6.) In the real world, the goal of Alt-Right activism should be to summon the culture war that is going on online and channel it to the surface. We want it to explode like a volcano. …

9.) It is fun to engage in troll storms, swarms and raids online. We should aim to demonstate how much more fun it is to break taboos as a real world movement with likeminded people. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of practicing your beliefs in public space.

10.) I’ve already explained numerous times over the years how these events – think of Berkeley, which was transformative – undermine taboos, normalize our ideas, position our groups at the leading edge of this cultural angst, define our image, create trust and social capital, build real world social networks, isolate malcontents, generate publicity, draw talented new people into the fold and spark imitators. These events are small steps but they have a cumulative impact over time.

11.) The Alt-Right is transforming into a real world movement. It will never go back into the closet after it starts to gain cohesion and overcomes the fear of being out in public. As the movement rolls from place to place beyond Charlottesville, it will absorb new people who will come out and act on the beliefs they already hold in private. We’re seeing stable organizations sprout up now like Traditionalist Worker Party, Vanguard America, Identity Evropa and Anti-Communist Action.”

On a final note, I will observe that Unite the Right will be another step forward toward normalizing this style of activism in the South, which has become increasingly commonplace in recent months. The South is already the epicenter of this movement and the networking that will go on around this event will be particularly helpful in strengthening our presence in the Maryland/Virginia region.

I made one big mistake.

I’ve been doing this for years, observing the White Nationalist movement, thinking about social change, mulling over the merits of mainstreaming and vanguardism. The Alt-Right is new to real world activism. In the aftermath of Charlottesville, the Alt-Right lost cohesion and was scared out of public space. It stalled and lost nerve and was unable to move beyond Charlottesville.

The Alt-Right has since been consumed by the optics debate. It is a version of the old mainstreaming theory which focuses on Taking Back America through electoral politics. In order to Take Back America, we have to “appeal to the normies,” and the way to do that is through “optics.” By dressing as normal as possible, we will win over the normies and succeed in mainstreaming racism. Whereas people used to believe this could be done by wearing suits and ties, they now believe in the efficacy of polos and khakis and American flags. It is a strategy based on aesthetics, not ethics.

Ultimately, the goal is to look like Mormon missionaries and for the movement as a whole to look like it is ready to come over for tea at Mitt Romney’s house. When that is achieved, the hope is that we will be accepted as “mainstream” by conservatism which will never happen.

We shouldn’t have public rallies.

If the #UniteTheRight rally had been held in Lynchburg, VA instead of Charlottesville, VA, it would have been fine. There would have been no violence. The police would have done their jobs. Everything that happened in Charlottesville flowed from the fact that it is the most leftwing city in Virginia which is why the police stood down and allowed #UniteTheRight to descend into anarchy.

We’re not going to stop holding public rallies. This is an overreaction. The truth is that we aren’t safe in leftwing strongholds where police stand down like in Berkeley or Charlottesville. That’s the real problem. There’s no reason why we can’t just avoid those places and continue to hold public events. Also, if we want to hold rallies in leftwing cities like Charlottesville, flash rallies are safer and preferable.

You’re appealing to the most extreme elements.

First, we have to understand who we are. We are alienated, disaffected, disillusioned White Americans. Second, we have to understand who normies are, which is to say, middle class people who are comfortable and satisfied and who don’t want to make waves for financial reasons or fear of loss of status.

In order to grow, we want more people to adopt our views. We want the normies to become angry, alienated, disaffected and disillusioned like the rest of us. The audience then really isn’t normies who are being converted. It is the disaffected who we should be organizing.

We’ve got to win over the normies.

Actually, no.

Victory for us is by definition normies ceasing to be normies. It means overcoming these economic and social status concerns and embracing romantic nationalism. It means being carried away by righteous anger and shattering all politically correct taboos. Cultural change happens when an idea reaches a critical mass. Then it rapidly sweeps through the rest of the population. In other words, the goal has to be to create a cultural vanguard which can initiate this transformative process.

It sounds like you are rejecting mainstreaming.

I’m rejecting naive mainstreaming.

In a sense, I want our ideas to be “mainstream,” or more socially acceptable. The only way you do that is through amassing power. What is power? It is numbers, organization, money, will power, etc. We become powerful by smashing taboos and demonstrating we won’t observe them anymore.

This sounds like vanguardism.

I’m rejecting stupid vanguardism which is, say, retreating to a rural area to await the demise of civilization or taking up arms and attempting to overthrow the US government. I’m not advocating violence or purity spiraling. Instead, I am saying a cultural vanguard is needed to violate norms.

What is optics cucking?

It is more accurately optics spiraling. I see it as a source of unnecessary division. We’ve dealt with it before. All it does is create polarization and reduce our numbers. Normies will drive by and honk their horns. They might even think you are a wholesome, good looking bunch of guys on television. The visual impression, however, isn’t going to change normie incentives and behavior though.

What do you propose?

We should continue to hold real world events: conferences, public rallies, private social events, cultural events, flash rallies, speaking engagements.

Flags are inappropriate and unnecessary at speaking engagements. These speaking engagements are also in gun free zones on college campuses, anyway. So much of this debate is making mountains out of molehills. The goal is to create a polarizing social media spectacle. Again, we want to attract the angry, alienated, disaffected and disillusioned and organize them into a cultural vanguard.

Shelbyville taught us a number of things:

1.) First, the Alt-Right is incapable of doing this. It is going to be hamstrung by the optics question. It will eat away at its solidarity. The splintering that will result will keep the Alt-Right out of the public square and choke its growth. The result will be small flash rallies which will focus on projecting an aesthetic that appeals to upper middle class normies in the suburbs. This is the milieu that many of these people come from and their attitudes are already making it a class movement. The racial message will be lost and the focus will be entirely on things like clothes and haircuts.

2.) Second, White Nationalists don’t have these class anxieties, seem poised to become more active and have a potentially larger populist base in the South and Midwest, but they have some issues that need to be ironed out with archaic imagery. Even if it was wildly exaggerated, there was a lot of truth in the criticism about the optics of Shelbyville. In the long run, these are distractions which can be eliminated. It will be easier to screen our rallies than to change an elitist mindset. We need something more along the lines of a populist Southern Marsh/Carthartt-style of nationalism.

3.) Third, the Pikeville and Shelbyville model can easily be extended to other locations in the South and Midwest. Antifa will be separated after this proven success. This will be the end of “no platforming.” As we move from region to region, we will gather new supporters and snowball. It cost $10,000 to book an event at the University of Florida. It cost nothing to stand on a sidewalk.

4.) Fourth, it remains to be seen how large this movement can grow. We had 125 people in Pikeville. We had at least 200 in Shelbyville. The whole point of White Lives Matter was to rebound from Charlottesville. The feeling of being so shellshocked after Charlottesville will subside. The transition of White Nationalism from the internet to the real world is a surprising development.

5.) Fifth, as the Hard Right moves forward, moving from place to place, gathering disaffected supporters in the South and Midwest and snowballing, this is going to generate resentment because it is not what many people expected. They are accustomed to having the spotlight all to themselves. They dislike being overshadowed which the sheer number of people who come to our public events is going to do. Their goal is to appeal to upper middle class normies in the suburbs who are unresponsive to their appeals and their retreat from the public square will only exacerbate this.

Admittedly, we were unprepared for the wave of criticism, which was much worse than what we saw in the mainstream media. In Shelbyville, we thought we were trying to turn the page on Charlottesville, create trust and solidarity within our groups and draw attention to a gruesome crime that had been covered up by the national media. If we can’t speak out about something as terrible as the anti-White church shooting Antioch, what is the point of even having a movement?

Is it the White Nationalist movement or the optics movement?

Note: As Billy Roper notes, we also raised $1,800 for Jacob Goodwin who is awaiting extradition to Charlottesville for the DeAndre Harris incident.


Nationalist Front Vindicated By New York City Terrorist Attack

We told you so.

While the Nationalist Front was warning the people of Middle Tennessee last weekend about the dangers posed by Third World immigration and refugee resettlement, Sayfullo Saipov was busy plotting to unleash his terrorist attack on behalf of ISIS in New York City:

“Sayfullo Saipov’s arrival in the United States in 2010 began unceremoniously in Ohio.

“My dad introduced him as, ‘He’s new to the United States, and he’s going to stay with us,’ ” said Bekhzod Abdusamatov, 22.

Mr. Saipov, the suspect in the terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan that killed eight people on Tuesday, arrived from Tashkent — the Uzbek capital and its largest city — knowing little English, Mr. Abdusamatov said.

He spent those early days in the United States looking for a job and trying to improve his English, Mr. Abdusamatov said. But he was also a late sleeper.

At one point, Mr. Saipov made his way to Fort Myers, Fla., where he met a fellow Uzbek immigrant, Kobiljon Matkarov, 37. Mr. Saipov was working as a truck driver at the time. …”

He was brought here through the “diversity lottery”:

“At a Cabinet meeting later, Trump said he would work with Congress to end the visa program.

“I am today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program. I am going to ask Congress to immediately…get rid of this program,” said the president, who called the suspect an “animal.” “Diversity lottery — sounds nice, it’s not nice. It’s not good. It hasn’t been good.”

Trump continued, “We want people that are going to help our country, we want people that are going to keep our country safe. We don’t want lotteries where the wrong people are in the lotteries and guess what? Who are the suckers that get those people? We want a merit-based system.”

A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security later confirmed the suspect in the attack, a 29-year-old Uzbek immigrant named Sayfullo Saipov, had been admitted to the U.S. “upon presentation of a passport with a valid diversity immigrant visa to U.S. Customs and Border Protection in 2010.” …”

When I first heard about the terrorist attack in Manhattan, I thought of the reporters I had talked to this weekend in Tennessee. Were they safe? Were they reconsidering what the Nationalist Front had to say in Shelbyville? Are they willing to admit now this is a problem?

Then I thought about this scene in Murfreesboro:

Then I thought about this scene in Manhattan:

Sayfullo Saipov could have easily driven his Home Depot truck into that crowd of Murfreesboro Loves counterprotesters standing to greet us on the sidewalk. It would have been far more devastating too than the death toll in New York City. Those people felt safe enough to stand out there on that sidewalk because they knew that we would never do something like that to them.

Apparently, this terrorist has been bouncing around the United States since arriving in Ohio in 2010. He has lived in Ohio, Florida and New Jersey. He was once arrested in Missouri. How many people like Sayfullo Saipov, Emanuel Samson or Mohammad Abdulazeez have we let into this country because of our lax immigration laws? What kind of terrorist attacks are they planning?

Why would anyone want this in Middle Tennessee? This is a known problem and standing on a sidewalk to virtue signal at us with a “Murfreesboro Loves” banner isn’t going to make it go away.

The Hard Right

I’ve tried to avoid these public debates.

When I have seen something that other people in our movement are doing that I disagree with, I have kept my mouth shut. There have been many such occasions over the last two years. As a rule, I have erred on the side of solidarity because of my belief that public infighting on the internet crippled the White Nationalist movement in the 2000s. It is wiser sometimes to remain silent.

I’ve joked in the past that the first rule of White Nationalism 1.0 was that everyone hated everyone else and wasted those years jockeying for the top position. From my perspective, this inability to work with others was the defining feature of White Nationalism 1.0. More than anything else, it was extreme individualism and the anonymous nature of shitposting on online forums which created the low-trust environment which prevented us from moving forward. I finally got so tired of the backbiting that I stopped identifying altogether as a White Nationalist around 2011.

White Nationalism since 2008 has been defined by the rise of the Alt-Right which has been described as White Nationalism 2.0. This contrast between “White Nationalism 1.0” and “White Nationalism 2.0” was discussed in months before the Unite the Right rally. In everything I wrote about the subject, I emphasized that the key difference was a desire to get along and work with others. It was the “1.0s” who spent all their time tearing each other down and the “2.0s” had moved beyond that.

In hindsight, I will admit that many of the “1.0s” were right to be skeptical of the Unite the Right rally. It was predicted at the time that the unity we hoped to achieve in Charlottesville wouldn’t last two weeks. There had been countless attempts to hold these unity events in the past. Every previous attempt to foster unity in the White Nationalist movement had been defeated by personalities jockeying for position. The “1.0s” were also extremely skeptical of inviting the Alt-Lite to participate. They were right on that score as well as the fallout showed the Alt-Lite was solely about promoting brands.

To be completely candid, I am writing this as an observer. I identify as a Southern Nationalist. I’ve written volumes about the differences between White Nationalism and Southern Nationalism. I won’t go into that here except to note that there is some overlap between the two. We both believe that race exists and race matters. We both believe that Whites are in decline in the United States. We have similar views on political correctness, multiculturalism, immigration, refugee resettlement, etc. Generally, the way I see it is that I am focused on my own people, but I am supportive of Whites elsewhere.

Unlike some people, I don’t get too worked up about labels. I can tell you all the flaws of White Nationalism and the Alt-Right. I’m even skeptical of Southern Nationalism. These labels have different meanings to different people which haven’t been fully fleshed out. The difference we are going to talk about here today is the Alt-Right and its relationship with White Nationalism. This seems to be at the core of the present controversy over Unite the Right and the White Lives Matter rally.

Is the Alt-Right a euphemism for White Nationalism? Does the Alt-Right include National Socialism? I don’t think these questions have been adequately answered.

My view is that the Alt-Right was always conceived as a broader space than White Nationalism. It was defined negatively against mainstream conservatism. Originally, the Alt-Right was an umbrella term for rightwing tendencies which were considered fringe rightwing movements like White Nationalism, paleoconservatism and libertarianism. I’ve written in the past that the hallmarks of the Alt-Right are a focus on truth, identity and iconoclasm. This is not the same thing as White Nationalism which is focused exclusively on race and the welfare and interests of White people. The Alt-Right has lots of ideas which are drawn from troll culture, paleoconservatism and libertarianism.

Seen in this way, the Alt-Right is the big space on the Right outside of mainstream conservatism. It includes, but isn’t synonymous with, White Nationalism, Southern Nationalism, National Socialism as well as some forms of paleoconservatism, libertarianism and the troll culture of messageboards. Because the Alt-Right is defined negatively against mainstream conservatism, its various tribes of castaways lack internal cohesion, many of which mutually despise each other. The Alt-Lite is an attempt by various edgy brands to ride the fence between mainstream conservatism and the Alt-Right.

The Unite the Right rally was conceived by Jason Kessler as a way to bring together all of these factions to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee monument in Charlottesville. He brought together a very broad mix of people on August 12th that included Southern heritage activists, Alt-Lite brands, Patriot groups, Southern Nationalists, White Nationalists, Identitarians and National Socialists. As we all remember, the Charlottesville Police stood down and allowed chaos to break out in the streets. We can all agree on what happened. We disagree on our relationship to each other.

Alt-Right and Hard Right

Generally speaking, there were two broad groups which came together at the Unite the Right rally in Lee Park. There was the Alt-Right which carried out the torchlight march at the University of Virginia on August 11th. There was also the Hard Right which marched into Lee Park in one big column from the Market Street Parking garage in Charlottesville.

This contrast between the Alt-Right and Hard Right was brought up at the meetup location prior to the Unite the Right rally. The latter has been congealing as a block of Southern Nationalists, White Nationalists and National Socialists and roughly consists of all the hardcore elements in the movement.

The Hard Right and Alt-Right have different optics:

Here are my Periscope videos from this weekend in Shelbyville:

Pikeville also had an intense feeling:

There is a different aesthetic, energy level and feel at Hard Right events. These people are hardened White Nationalists, Southern Nationalists and National Socialists. They are not gamers, meme makers, identitarians, Kekistanis, Trumpists, civic nationalist LARPers and Patriots, irony bros or other people barely removed from conservatism.

The Hard Right has been gestating for over a year now and has evolved from Pikeville to New Orleans to Charlottesville to Shelbyville parallel to the Alt-Right. In the aftermath of Unite the Right, different groups began to move in different directions. The Alt-Lite retreated into mainstream conservatism. The MAGApedes either shuttered their rallies or held events for they could be beat up in order to play the victim on FOX News. Some in the Alt-Right decided to rebrand as “American Nationalism” whereas others decided to focus on controlled flash rallies and college tours. Meanwhile, the Hard Right wasn’t swayed by Charlottesville and decided to move forward with public rallies.

White Lives Matter was two months in the making. The purpose of this rally was to demonstrate that the Hard Right wasn’t responsible for the violence in Charlottesville, draw attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting and foster cohesion within our own movement. It succeeded on all three fronts. This was the first big post-Charlottesville public rally and it drew around 300 people. Indeed, it was far larger than we had expected it would be for what we considered a rebound event. It proved that Charlottesville had changed very little and rumors of our demise had been greatly exaggerated.

The tension with the Alt-Right that has emerged since last weekend is unexpected, but it isn’t really surprising. We invited both Identity Evropa and The Daily Stormer to participate in the White Lives Matter rallies in Tennessee. They chose not to do so and preferred to hold their own events. We didn’t care or think much about it until we were forced to respond to all the criticism. It has laid bare a bunch of different points within the movement on which we are not in alignment.

Nathan Damigo

This one is rich coming from Nathan Damigo.

As many of you might remember, Nathan Damigo is famous for participating in two major rallies. There was the Berkeley rally in April and Unite the Right in Charlottesville in August. Both of these rallies ended in violence and were the two biggest clashes with Antifa of the year. In Berkeley, Nathan Damigo punched Moldylocks the female Antifa pornstar, and in Charlottesville he was arrested for civil disobedience. Elsewhere, he was the one bullied at rallies by the Oathcucks.

In the aftermath of Charlottesville, Nathan Damigo resigned as the leader of Identity Evropa. He was one of the many people from California who folded under the pressure. Baked Alaska reverted to being a normie Trump supporter. Kyle Chapman disavowed Augustus Invictus, Irma Hinojosa and Johnny Benitez. Ever since Charlottesville, Joey Gibson has dominated the scene out there and his goal is to bait Antifa into beating him up with his American flag in order to get normies watching on FOX News to feel sorry for him. Nothing much is happening in California these days.


California was ground zero for LARPing civic nationalist faggots. The biggest one of them all was “Based Spartan” who was with Nathan Damigo at Berkeley. Virtually all the rallies he participated in this year out in California included Based Tranny (seen right) and Oathcucks and MAGApedes in Trojan armor and conservatives running around with cringe KEK flags that we laughed at here in the South.




Back in May, Van the Cuck Knight came to New Orleans from Los Angeles and got dropped by the Hard Right after starting shit with us about our Confederate flags:

We weren’t very impressed with them. They didn’t endure six months. LARPers are attention seekers like the Cuck Knight, not hardened White Nationalists.

James Allsup and Nicholas Fuentes

These two are college Republicans who are the hosts of a new conservative talk show called Nationalist Review. Fuentes is a conservative who was fired by Right Side Broadcasting Network in August. Now he is an expert on the Alt-Right and an oracle of where the movement needs to be going.

The Fuentes view of rightwing rhetoric and optics is that everything we do should be targeted at pandering to the sensibilities of Paul Ryan voters in Janesville, Wisconsin. Basically, it is the idea that we are going to take over the GOP, purge the cucks in the midterm elections and Take Back America through voting. If you don’t believe in this delusion, you are “bad optics” and a Nazi LARPer.

Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” was borrowed from Ronald Reagan’s 1980 campaign. This conservative idea of “Taking Back America” from the Democrats and Republican establishment has been around since the 1980s. Please note that Ronald Reagan’s landslide victory, Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America, the George W. Bush presidency, the Tea Party, and Donald Trump have all failed to do this with huge electoral mandates.

How will it be any different this time? Conservatives have been fighting the GOP establishment for a decade now. They have elected a whole new crop of politicians in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016. Charlie Christ was the establishment and Marco Rubio was Tea Party. It changed nothing to replace one with the other. Some of the worst cucks in Congress like Ben Sasse have only been there for one or two terms. Even President Donald Trump hasn’t put a dent in the conservative policy agenda.

Conservatism is a sink of our time, money and energy. The ultimate proof of this was the Charlottesville resolution which was passed unanimously by the Republican Congress and signed by President Trump. It blamed us exclusively for Charlottesville and failed to mention Antifa. Instead of “Making America Great Again,” Trump has presided over rapid erosion of our First Amendment rights and we have absorbed all the costs of his presidency both online and in the streets without reaping any of the oversold benefits.

Ricky Vaughn

Ricky Vaughn has essentially the same view as Allsup and Fuentes.

In 2018, we should allow ourselves to be coopted by conservatism again, and line up behind General Bannon who has said we are all ethnonationalist losers who need to be crushed. If only we elect Joy Villa and Josh Mandel to Congress, we will “Take Back America” or something.

Again, this is laughable. What is in this for us? The question doesn’t even occur to Ricky Vaughn who sees no daylight between our movement and Republican electoral prospects even though the latter have been using us to get elected for over thirty years now. Ricky Vaughn condemned the White Lives Matter rally, but endorses Josh Mandel for Congress, which tells you everything you need to know about him.

Ricky Vaughn wants to sublimate our movement into conservatism. He believes in invigorating conservatives with memes which will only divert more people into wasting their time on that sinkhole. What does conservatism have to do to finally be discredited? Pass a massive amnesty for illegal aliens? Pass an enormous tax cut for the wealthy? Fail to defend the First Amendment? Fail to preserve the definition of marriage, the unborn, gender roles or women’s restrooms?

If we really wanted to influence the mainstream Right, the easiest way to do so would be to stop voting for them in the midterm elections. Let them fall flat on their faces with their civic nationalist appeals to based black guys and based Jews who are never going to vote for the Republican Party anyway. In the long run, Whites are becoming more racially conscious, and the number of True Conservatives is shrinking in every election which makes the status quo unsustainable on race relations.

Donald Trump had nothing to say about the Antioch church shooting. If we can’t even draw attention to something that horrible, what is the point in even having a social movement?

Andrew Anglin

Andrew Anglin has done a better job of articulating a premise what many other people believe in the Alt-Right, but have refrained from saying publicly. He believes the Alt-Right should be a class movement that appeals to upper middle class normies in the suburbs. This is the reason why it is so important to have the right optics. We don’t want to be associated with all those White Nationalist losers.

In recent months, Andrew Anglin has become an expert on real world activism. We found this strange since as far as we know he has never organized a political rally or even attended a conference in the United States. Anglin’s only experience in this area was orchestrating the Neo-Nazi invasion of Whitefish, MT which succeeded in making life more difficult for Richard Spencer’s parents and saddling him with an SPLC lawsuit that has cost the movement over $150,000. We invited Anglin to come to Unite the Right, but he couldn’t risk showing up and being served with the lawsuit over Whitefish.

In the aftermath of Charlottesville, Anglin decided that he was rebranding the movement as “American Nationalism.” He was genuinely surprised when no one else got on board with this idea. He expected Southern Nationalists (who want an independent South), White Nationalists (who want a White ethnostate), Identitarians (pan-European racial nationalists) and National Socialists (who loathe liberal democracy) to climb on board with this “Take Back America” platform.

It didn’t happen because so few of our people believe “Taking Back America” is possible. No one believed in deracinated American civic nationalism or has any confidence that one blog on the internet can redefine Americanism as white supremacy. This is why so few people show up with the federal flag at rallies. Activists don’t want to use it and forcing them to do so would only discourage them from showing up at events. There isn’t a constituency for American Nationalism outside of the familiar Patriot groups and Alt-Lite civic nationalist groups like the Proud Boys.

There’s no reason to believe pretending to be something we are not is a more effective activist strategy. The Hard Right turned out 125 people in Pikeville and 300 people in Shelbyville and Murfreesboro. The turnout at Unite the Right, which was an explicitly pro-White event, dwarfed the turnout at virtually all of the American flag rallies organized by the Alt-Lite, MAGApedes and Patriot groups.

As I have said for months, we weren’t as damaged by Charlottesville as some people have assumed. In the aftermath of Charlottesville, three separate public opinion polls have shown that anywhere from 6% to 10% of the public supports the Alt-Right. There is no meaningful difference in the constituency since the same stratum of the public also supports White Nationalism and Neo-Nazism.

It is true there is a much bigger constituency that is implicitly pro-White. We aren’t anywhere close to our ceiling when nearly half of White Americans believe White people are under attack or that European heritage ought to preserved. The point on which they divide from us, however, has nothing to do with optics or labels. Rather, it is being an explicitly pro-White movement that doesn’t subscribe to the doctrine of racial equality. These people share our grievances, but are afraid of being called “racists.”

Anglin wants to recruit upper middle class suburban normies to become “American Nationalists.” He ignores the fact that this stratum of the Right is the least alienated, the least disaffected, and the most resistant to his messaging. These people live in a bubble and are sheltered from racial and cultural breakdown. They have the most to lose by becoming “American Nationalist” activists at our events. Normies are individualists and materialists. The constituency that Anglin is targeting are super normies. That’s why whenever we have a public event you can hear them shrieking in terror on the internet about optics and ruining their lives because aren’t up to challenging the status quo.

The reasoning here is that if only we look good and have the right optics, which is to say look like a bunch of Mormon missionaries or Jehovah’s Witnesses, then we will be accepted by mainstream society who will see our American flags and forget we are “racists.” This is retarded because we are stigmatized because we are not in power and for moral reasons, not aesthetic ones. No one cares what you are wearing. It doesn’t make you any less of a “racist” in their eyes. What’s more, it’s not like the media hasn’t noticed that white polo shirts and khakis with tiki torches are the “new uniform of white supremacy.” It is a subject which has generated a lot of discussion in the media.

After all this talk about optics and aesthetics, no one has objected to this look which so many people assume is “superior optics.” That’s because many of us haven’t share our opinions for the sake of avoiding internet drama. We reject the notion that the effeminate conservative dork look, the Winn Dixie checkout line look, the Best Buy Geek Squad look, The Office look, or the Backstreet Boys look is superior optics. Seriously, it would be nice if these people could stop congratulating themselves.

It is actually quite bland. It is no wonder that these people need to consult the Pickup Artist Community (PUAs) in order to be coached into getting laid or rage spiral about MGTOW or how all women are Thots who need to be beat into submission. Combine it with a lack of passion and it comes across as low energy. The impression that one gets is that these guys are frustrated IT workers who are racists.

We’re already stigmatized as dangerous and immoral. In the real world, Anglin strangely advises us NOT to be edgy and to pretend to be something we aren’t to “appeal to the normies” who will never leave their couch. Instead of doing that, we should use it to our advantage and play it up to strike a contrast. If we are the bad guys, why not look like well known romantic bad guys?

It is a waste of time to appeal to normal people who are individualists and materialists. We should be appealing to angry, alienated, disaffected people who are persuadable with optics that work on that audience. Heimbach’s Traditionalist Worker Party which is disaffected, populist, rural and Christian has a real constituency in the South and Midwest.

This isn’t a joke. We need serious leaders. We are in a war for our racial and cultural survival on this continent. Are people who are afraid of guns going to “Take Back America” with fucking cringe KEK flags, conservative talk radio shows and by panicking and policing their “associations”?

Conservatism has failed. We’re not going to “Make America Great Again.” This country is only going to become more polarized as liberal democracy continues to destroy our common culture. In the streets, there is more tension that ever before and we can only find security in numbers. Far from winning over upper middle class normies with really impressive optics, it is the ongoing unraveling of America which is going to push those normies into our camp. At the end of the day, it is going to be either us or those people on the other side and they will line up behind our warriors, not Nick Fuentes or Spooky Ricky.

We need people who are tough and who have courage. We need people who aren’t going to back down and who are strong and have confidence in their own opinions. It might be a good idea to actually have people around who know how to fight and use firearms. There is a strong possibility that one day this could get very ugly. In such a situation, no one is going to turn to social media brands or helpless upper middle class normies when anarchists are communists are expropriating their country club.

In the final analysis, this comes down to a bet. Are we going to reform this system through participating in mainstream conservative politics? Is this whole damn system going to become so polarized and dysfunctional that it is going to collapse on our heads and unwind in the streets? Based on what I have seen in the streets and the failure of Trump’s campaign and all the previous “Take Back America” movements, I think it is going to be the latter. Donald Trump was the last chance for something like that to succeed. He was the last gasp of conservatism.

I fully expect things to get much uglier in the future. So I have ceased to care about all the things that have given conservatives the shakes in the past. Ultimately, it isn’t going to matter.

Note: I want to emphasize that I don’t have any problem with the people who I have criticized above. All I have done here is explain why we disagree. They were the ones who chose to have this discussion in public view which isn’t a choice I would have made.

White Lives Matter: An Autopsy

White Lives Matter was conceived as a do over of Unite the Right.

Ever since Charlottesville, I have been eager to fight back against the false narrative that was constructed about what happened on August 12th. I felt that we were unfairly blamed for the violence that erupted in the streets. It wasn’t our fault that Charlottesville Police failed to do their jobs that day. They made no effort whatsoever to separate the two sides and deliberately allowed the violence to escalate in order use it as an excuse to shutdown the rally as an “unlawful assembly.”

We didn’t come to Charlottesville in order to walk into a Berkeley situation. If that were the case, I certainly never would have brought my wife who stayed away from the front lines in Auburn, New Orleans and Shelbyville. We came to participate in a free speech rally, listen to some speeches, protest the removal of a Confederate monument, drive a message on social media and network with other likeminded people. The League of the South has organized dozens of similar rallies since 2013.

I’ve said for months now the Charlottesville Police and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe are responsible for the chaos on August 12th. In order to prove it, I originally came up with the idea of holding Unite the Right 2.0 in a different state. We would do it the right way this time. We would lean on our own experience with previous events to correct the errors of Charlottesville. Unite the Right wasn’t a bad idea. We simply couldn’t have picked a worse location to do something that huge in the South.

By early September, I was already working on White Lives Matter:

– Instead of the single most leftwing city in Dixie, we would hold this event in friendlier territory. We were looking for a red county in a red state.

– After Charlottesville, we wouldn’t even bother to invite the Alt-Lite and Patriots which could be counted on to panic and disavow us again at the first sign of trouble.

– We would hold this event in the geographic center of the eastern United States. This would cut the costs of traveling for everyone who wanted to attend.

– We decided that we would hold this rally in Kentucky or Tennessee where law enforcement has a reliable track record of preventing disorder at our events.

– We decided the rally would have to be near a major metro area so there would be plenty of affordable lodging after the AirBnb disaster in Charlottesville.

The League of the South had discussed holding a rally in Murfreesboro and Shelbyville in the fall at our national conference in June. This idea was already on the drawing board. We wanted to go back to the area to highlight the refugee resettlement issue in the light of all the violence that had occurred in Europe. It was in this context that the idea of “Unite the Right 2.0” merged with going back to Middle Tennessee. We applied for the permits to hold this event there in September.

The rally that became White Lives Matter was already a go when the Emanuel Samson church shooting happened in Antioch on September 24th. The story was covered extensively in the Tennessee media, but it was neglected by the national media which was focused on the NFL protests and a series of major hurricanes. After Antioch, White Lives Matter began to rapidly take shape around the theme of refugee resettlement and the Antioch church shooting because of this perfect storm of issues.

The media was driving a narrative at the time that the Alt-Right had been broken and driven underground by Charlottesville. In the League of the South, we figured that we would let the backlash settle down, focus on rebuilding our websites and give Antifa the space to discredit itself. We would have our next big public rally around Halloween in Tennessee. The Nationalist Front groups swiftly came on board. Anti-Communist Action and The Right Stuff were persuaded to join us. We all needed to do something to move beyond Charlottesville and the Emanuel Samson church shooting was something we could do to draw attention to a story neglected by the media. White people being murdered in a church by a Sudanese refugee in retaliation for Charleston should have been something we could all rally around.

It didn’t pan out for three reasons:

– First, Andrew Anglin at The Daily Stormer came up with the idea of rebranding as “American Nationalism,” and holding only American flag rallies in which all guns were banned. This made it impossible for him to work with the Nationalist Front.

– Second, Identity Evropa decided to do its own thing and focus on Richard Spencer’s college tour and flash rallies in which other groups were kept out of the loop.

– Third, the optics spiraling on Twitter reached a fever pitch in October and dissolved what little unity still existed in the Alt-Right after Charlottesville.

In light of this, we gave up on these people and moved forward with the White Lives Matter rally, but left the door open to these other groups to participate. None of us thought it was big deal. We already knew Identity Evropa was holding the college tour. We also intend to hold more League of the South events anyway in the fall and winter. The purpose of this rally was to show we could all get together and do something else without it turning into a clusterfuck like Charlottesville.

White Lives Matter had clearly defined objectives: Draw national attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting. Foster greater unity and cohesion within our own movement. Turn the page on Charlottesville. Unlike previous rallies, we had a mission in Tennessee.

In hindsight, White Lives Matter went off pretty much as we expected it would. There were about 200 White Nationalists, Southern Nationalists and National Socialists with us in Tennessee. As expected, it was larger than Pikeville, but smaller than Charlottesville. There was no violence, shootings or arrests in Shelbyville. We proved that it is still possible to hold free speech rallies. We proved that some cities are more committed to upholding law and order than others.

After Shelbyville, we went to Henry Horton State Park and had a picnic. We talked for several hours, got to know each other a little better and had a fundraiser for Jacob Goodwin of Arkansas who is locked up in Charlottesville over the DeAndre Harris race hoax. Since we accomplished all three of our goals, we didn’t even bother to go to the Murfreesboro rally. It was too much of a risk.

The biggest disappointment of the weekend by far was Antioch which was always our real target. White Lives Matter had planned to hold a candlelight march to the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ after dark. The plan was to go to the church, lay a wreath at the door, say a prayer and express our grief about what happened there. I feel that too often our movement is unfairly associated with hate when it is really about our love for our own people. It would have been something totally unexpected and out of character and a nice touch after expressing our anger earlier in the day.

Unfortunately, we announced this at Henry Horton State Park in the presence of several reporters, and somehow Louisville Antifa was tipped off about a “torchlight march” at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ. In order to avoid those violent people attacking us at a church while we mourned our dead, I had to call it off at the last minute. We also called off Murfreesboro and left Henry Horton State Park to avoid them. My goal this weekend was to avoid those idiots. We were already leaving in a caravan when dozens of state troopers and the FBI rolled into the park in order prevent Antifa from attacking the picnic. In the future, we are also going to avoid clashes with them insofar as possible.

I will briefly touch on some other issues this weekend:

– We had planned for each group to come dressed in its own attire and to stand together with their own optics, but the cold weather in Shelbyville made this pointless. Nearly everyone there came wearing a black jacket and the optics were so similar that we all blended into one large group. The rules also banned flag poles which would have made everyone who was there look more distinct.

– There were no swastika flags in Shelbyville. This had been the major concern going into the rally. There weren’t many flags there period because flag poles were banned.

– I will give the opposition credit for having far better sound equipment. We will be doing a fundraiser to buy better equipment as well as walkie talkies and Go Pro cameras.

– I enjoyed talking to Mike Cannon who organized the counterprotest. It would be nice if more people could talk instead of shouting down each other over political differences.

– The security checkpoint in Shelbyville stalled us for an hour and a half and threw off our schedule. We didn’t have time to do lunch and go to Murfreesboro and pass through that much security again. The permit would have been over by the time we got there.

– There’s no doubt that a handful of individuals who came to the rally need to take better care of themselves. There were also several other distractions like pins and patches. This wasn’t true of the vast majority of the crowd that was in attendance though in Shelbyville, but it is something that will need to be addressed at future events.

– We saw several incidents this weekend which illustrated the importance of ironing out differences in the real world that are generated by internet gossip. This is why we need to know each other in the real world in order to minimize this bullshit.

– We arrived late in Shelbyville and didn’t have time to vet people at the meeting point.

– There is an anti-Nazi crowd, a pro-National Socialist crowd and a third group which doesn’t care about associations because we are all marginalized and called “racists” and “Nazis” anyway. I fall into the third group because I am so tired of spineless conservatives.

– Murfreesboro was cancelled because our schedule was thrown off and intel that it was a lawsuit trap waiting to happen. We will never know if it would have gone down peacefully. I don’t see how Antifa could have possibly attacked and started a riot with such stringent rules.

– We definitely should have put it out earlier that Murfreesboro was cancelled. Everyone didn’t follow the caravan to Henry Horton State Park.

Overall, I’m satisfied with how White Lives Matter turned out. It trended on Twitter all day in the United States. We succeeded in drawing attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting. There was no violence, arrests, shootings or any major clouds hanging over event. I feel that we moved beyond Charlottesville and demonstrated that the failure of the policing there was due its extreme leftwing local politics. It was an inexcusable failure on the part of Charlottesville.

My biggest disappointment is with the Alt-Right. I sense that the message has become optics aimed at signaling to the upper middle class. It seems to be evolving from a broader racial movement into a narrower class movement at the expense of internal solidarity. It is clear now that different groups responded to Charlottesville in different ways. The League of the South’s plan was to move beyond Charlottesville by showing that Unite the Right would have worked fine in another location while other groups became much more focused on optics.

I will have much more to say about the optics debate soon. There is a lot that I haven’t said about the issue. We’re going to make a number of adjustments, but extricate ourselves from that tar baby before it destroys our own internal unity and ability to mobilize in public.

Revised: White Lives Matter Event Page

Events: The Nationalist Front will be hosting two demonstrations in Middle Tennessee on Saturday, October 28th. We will hold the first demonstration in Shelbyville, TN in the morning. Then we will we pack up, eat lunch and travel to Murfreesboro, TN for our second demonstration. Finally, we will have various private social gatherings in the area in the evening where we will continue to socialize and everyone will have a chance to get to know each other better.

Date: Saturday, October 28th

Locations: Shelbyville, TN and Murfreesboro, TN.

The Shelbyville demonstration will take place at the intersection of U.S. Highway 231 and Lane Parkway. The Nationalist Front will be at the southwest corner while the opposition will be gathered at the northwest corner of this intersection. Please remember this.

Times: Shelbyville, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Murfreesboro, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

Speakers: Mike Enoch, Matthew Heimbach, Dr. Michael Hill, Dillon Hopper, Sacco Vandal, Jeff Schoep, Anti-Communist Action.

Participating Organizations: League of the South, Traditionalist Worker’s Party, National Socialist Movement, Vanguard America, Anti-Communist Action, The Right Stuff.

Fliers: Please share these on Facebook, Twitter, GAB and other social media. We also ask you to create new ones like with UTR in C’ville.

Meetup Locations: The meetup location in Shelbyville will be announced at 9:30 AM by @occdissent on Twitter in order to deter Antifa disruption. We will shuttle from there as a group to the rally point of the White Lives Matter demonstration and back to the meetup point afterwards. We will follow the same procedure with our demonstration in Murfreesboro.

Description: The purpose of the White Lives Matter rallies will be to protest the ongoing problem of refugee resettlement in Middle Tennessee and to draw attention to the recent Emanuel Samson church shooting in Antioch and the way this explosive story has been buried by the national media. The tragic events in Antioch, which was retaliation for the Dylann Roof shooting in Charleston, illustrated that the national media only cares about pushing its false narrative of White racism and black victimhood.

We also want to express our anger at the Trump administration which recently took Sudan off the travel ban list the day of the Antioch church shooting. It also followed up by announcing an “America First Refugee Program” which means dumping 45,000 refugees a year in places like Middle Tennessee while not saying a word when a Sudanese refugee who failed to assimilate goes on a rampage. The Trump administration has also failed to build the border wall and is working with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to pass a new version of the DREAM Act amnesty. Finally, we want to discuss the state of our movement and how we will move forward from here.

Objectives: Draw national attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting. Foster greater unity and cohesion within our own movement. Turn the page on Charlottesville.

Bring: We do not expect the White Lives Matter rallies in Shelbyville or Murfreesboro to become another Charlottesville. That’s not in our interest. It certainly isn’t in the interest of Shelbyville or Murfreesboro. We desire to hold two peaceful demonstrations. The Nationalist Front chose to hold this event in Middle Tennessee in order to AVOID any type of clash with violent Antifa protesters. We expect them to be restrained and separated as they were in Pikeville, KY.

We’re not going to tell you to neglect your own personal safety. You are free to bring a shield, a helmet or goggles – basically, items which are purely defensive in nature – to protect yourself from mace and pepper spray. We do not expect any of these items will be necessary on October 28th. At the same time, we cannot anticipate the actions of Antifa.

Do Not Bring: It is illegal to wear a mask in Tennessee. If you plan to bring a concealed firearm, please familiarize yourself with Tennessee’s gun laws. We do not recommend bringing any firearms to these demonstrations. The organizations involved are capable of providing for your security. Recent events in Charlottesville and Gainesville have demonstrated that firearms are a legal liability and entering and exiting events in numbers and not getting isolated is essential to your security.

Flags: This is a unity event within our movement. Each Nationalist Front organization will bring its own flag. Some people will use the Confederate Battle Flag. You are free to bring an American Flag. We would like to keep the styles and arguments over flags to a minimum. We will enter and exit as a group and exclude any actors or plants from our permitted area.

Attire: Each organization within the Nationalist Front has its own dress code for events. League of the South will be wearing black LS polo shirts, khakis and black boots. Traditionalist Worker’s Party will be dressed in black. NSM will be dressed in black. Vanguard America will be wearing white polo shirts and khakis. Anti-Communist Action will likely be wearing white polos and khakis.

If you are unaligned with any of these organizations, we ask gentlemen to wear something similar like some combination of a white or black polo and khakis. Ladies are asked to dress modestly. It shouldn’t be too hard to figure out. Come to the White Lives Matter rallies to make a good impression. Don’t come wearing shorts or flip flops or ragged jeans or anything of that nature.

Expectations: We want to host a HIGH ENERGY event. This will be an occasion to vent our anger and outrage and demonstrate we will not be closeted in our own country. Chants will include WHITE LIVES MATTER, BLOOD AND SOIL and YOU WILL NOT REPLACE US.

We are representing our movement in the public square and everyone who participates in these rallies will be expected to conduct themselves with that purpose in mind. Anyone who becomes disruptive or misbehaves will be asked by organizers to leave our permitted area.

Optics: We plan to show that we are a unified movement of diverse organizations who all agree that WHITE LIVES MATTER. In light of this, each organization will participate in these events as a cohesive unit under its own leader, and we will all stand shoulder to shoulder with our own optics, i.e., those with Confederate Battle Flags will be grouped together as will those with American flags.

Lodging: We encourage you to make hotel reservations in Murfreesboro or Nashville, TN. We won’t be staying long in Shelbyville. This is a Middle Tennessee event.

Private Event: We will be hosting a private lunch gathering for anyone attending the White Lives Matter rally in Shelbyville. It will be a time to relax, socialize and enjoy the companionship of likeminded people in our movement after two hours of pro-White activism. We will be keeping the location of the private event a secret until after the Shelbyville demonstration. In the evening, we will disperse to private parties and will likely continue to socialize and enjoy recreation in the Nashville Metro Area.

See you in Middle Tennessee. Hail victory!

The optics are very similar to Golden Dawn.

They used the Chad torch and everything. It was pitch perfect.



Christian Yingling and George Curbelo Respond To Charlottesville

Christian Yingling of the Pennsylvania Light Foot Militia:

“In regards to the lawsuit filed by the city of Charlottesville in in respect to more specifically, the 32 man militia team commanded by myself (Christian Yingling, Commanding Officer – Pennsylvania Light Foot Militia) and George Curbelo (Commanding Officer – New York Light Foot Militia).

On August 12th, 2017, Myself and George Curbelo commanded a team in conjunction with the Virginia Minuteman Militia (under Commanding Officer Eugene Wells), to provide security at an event entitled “Unite the Right” in Charlottesville Virginia. We had one goal, and one goal only in being there. That goal was to ensure that all people attending said rally had the opportunity to exercise their first amendment rights to free speech and to gather peacefully without fear of violent reprial from the other side. The press, and the city of Charlottesville have since then, tried to blame us for their unwillingness to get involved throughout the course of the day. Their inaction ultimately led to one woman’s death and countless injuries. They have also falsely accused us of working with the alt right to plan the event, and said we were there strictly to protect the alt right; neither of those accusations are even remotely close to being the truth.

I want to state unequivocally, that while we did in fact not contact the city council itself, we did have multiple phone conversations with Charlottesville police well ahead of our arrival in their city. They knew full well we were coming, and they knew full well we were going to be armed, and what exactly we were going to be armed with. We are fully prepared to provide the phone records to demonstrate that fact since they are now trying to say we had no contact with them. Even though it has been well documented (via photo/video) the Charlottesville Police department escorted us personally to the park. This was arranged well before we arrived in Charlottesville.

While there, our team acted strictly as a neutral peace keeping force, and did not take sides in any fashion. We helped people on both sides while we were repeatedly assaulted by both sides. Our team acted as complete professionals in every capacity, helping the injured, and breaking up fights while trying to keep the two sides separated. Both sides came armed with various weapons and both sides came to fight, no questions asked. Even in that chaotic environment, not one of our people drew or raised a weapon, or intimidated or assaulted anyone in any way shape or form.

Now the city of Charlottesville seeks to unconstitutionally, try to keep us from their city even though it was the state of Virginia’s own laws that allowed us to be armed that day, and the Charlottesville police told us it was perfectly fine for us to be there, and perfectly legal for us to be armed. To fight this, we will be taking multiple steps to address this issue. I will not go into those steps now, but rest assured once we take said steps, it will be made full public knowledge of our course of action.

We intend to continue this fight as long as needed to ensure the citizen’s right to aid their local law enforcement in keeping the peace at future events. We will also be taking the necessary steps to see that those who are truly to blame for the horrors we experienced that day are held accountable, both criminally and financially, to the fullest extent of the law. Thank you.

Our testimony will be from our experiences on Market St on the southern end of Emancipation Park. Our experiences are a telling example of what a political agenda can do to Law Enforcement, the intended peacekeepers. The Light Foot Militia and its affiliate group members were in Charlottesville as a neutral peacekeeping force. Our experiences as peacekeepers was recognized by local citizens as their testimonies and gratitude for our presence were openly shared with us as we solved one altercation after another until the violence become overwhelming and impossible to manage with only 32 men and women. The one common question that we were asked by the general public was, “Why aren’t the Police doing anything about this?” At 11:40 am, Law Enforcement gave me the instruction to remove our Militia off the street because they were going to shut the event down. Only after 2 hrs of violence did police finally take action in the form of riot control. Crowd control was not their job as I was told by 2 different Virginia state police. These statements can be verified by other Militia members. This lawsuit is an attempt by the City mayor and chief of police to divert their culpability to the only peacekeepers on the ground in Charlottesville on 8/12 and typical to a liberal progressive agenda. Their solution is never to take blame for their own mistakes but to restrict the rights of law abiding citizens. In conclusion and again we say WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE OPPORTUNITY TO POINT THE FAULT FOR THE VIOLENCE TO THOSE THAT ARE TRULY CULPABLE, NEGLEGANT AND WORTHY OF THE FULL RATH OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM.

American Warrior Revolution Officially Responds To Charlottesville

Ace Baker is livid.

He has every right to be. This is the most outrageous thing any of us have ever seen and we have been to protests all over the country. Everything that Ace says in this video is true.

How do I know Ace Baker is telling the truth? When I retraced Heather Heyer’s footsteps on August 12th, I discovered the Courtney Commander videos. Heather Heyer was with Courtney Commander, Marissa Blair and Marcus Martin in Charlottesville on August 12th. They were in the mob that pinned American Warrior Revolution behind the Sultan Kebab restaurant.

Commander was livestreaming it across the street. Faith Goldy was there livestreaming it. Ruptly was there livestreaming it. The mob was throwing rocks and taunting the Patriots and pursuing them through the streets of Charlottesville. What’s more, Heyer, Commander, Blair and Martin were there TO SEEK OUT TROUBLE. They were following the action and participating in the mob.

Do you know why Heyer, Commander, Blair and Martin ended up in that crowd that was struck by James Fields, Jr.’s Dodge Challenger? It was because Courtney Commander heard in that parking lot AWR left from that “dem n****s are goin to Garrett” because “there’s about to be a war.” She giddly told her friends and they all rushed over there to meet up with the other mob on Water Street.

We all had the same experience in Charlottesville. After Unite the Right was declared an “unlawful assembly,” the mob followed League of the South back to the Market Street Parking Garage and attacked. The mob followed American Warrior Revolution back to the parking lot across from the South Street Brewery and attacked. The mob that ended up on Water Street was pursuing a small group of NSM members who Ford Fischer was following and livestreaming.

The Charlottesville Police told American Warrior Revolution that “we’re not here to help you.” When DeAndre Harris and his friends attacked IN FRONT OF THE CHARLOTTESVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT, the cop standing there said on a livestream video it wasn’t his job to make arrests. Earlier in the day, the mob told the New York Lightfoot Militia their orders were “not to intercede.”

Commieville is run by that anarchist mob. It shows Mayor Mike Signer who is the real boss all the time. They just take over City Hall whenever they feel like it.

Charlottesville Launches Broadside Against US Constitution

In the latest sign that the City of Charlottesville considers itself a sovereign nation with its own foreign policy as well as the authority to nullify the US Constitution, two new lawsuits have been filed in federal and state court against Unite the Right organizers.

The lawsuit alleges that Jason Kessler and a number of pro-White organizations conspired to hold a “Unite the Right Free Speech Rally” in Lee Park in the City of Charlottesville to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee Confederate monument, the anti-White vitriol of Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy and the violation of Jason Kessler’s civil rights by an anarchist street gang. The White Nationalist organizers are alleged to have made “incursions” into the sovereign nation of Charlottesville where they engaged in “hate speech” which caused severe emotional distress to several sheltered residents.

It gets even worse. The Unite the Right organizers, the Redneck Revolt counter-protesters and several unaligned Patriot groups were seen carrying guns in Charlottesville on August 12th which many residents found scary. The hate groups brought Confederate Battle Flags and American flags which are known symbols of white supremacy for the purpose of intimidating people of color. The public display of these archaic symbols and constitutional rights, including the right to freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and the right to bear arms by White males, has left the City of Charlottesville in a traumatized state to this day. The toxic masculinity that was on display on August 12th has caused the plaintiffs to experience severe chest pain and recurring nightmares resulting in economic hardship.

After a federal court ruled that the City of Charlottesville had to allow the “Unite the Right Free Speech Rally” to proceed, the City of Charlottesville had no choice but to defend its sovereignty against the hostile White Nationalist invaders. It nullified the federal court order by ordering its police force to stand down and cede control of the streets to a deputized anarchist vigilante force. The violence which resulted from their attacks was used as an excuse to declare an “unlawful assembly” in Charlottesville and a “state of emergency” by Gov. Terry McAuliffe in Virginia. In such a way, Charlottesville was able to rid itself of the so-called First Amendment of the US Constitution and preserve its own orthodoxy.

The plaintiffs allege that nearly two hours after the Unite the Right organizers and attendees had left Charlottesville in compliance with Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s “state of emergency” – which applied only to the White Nationalists, but not to the Antifa counterprotesters who were still parading through the streets at that time – Andrew Anglin of The Daily Stormer initiated telepathic contact with James Fields, Jr. from his residence in Lagos, Nigeria and through a transatlantic Vulcan mind meld caused Fields’s car to plow into the crowd resulting in the death of Heather Heyer from a heart attack.

In the months since the events of August 12th, the City of Charlottesville has continued to make progress toward riding itself of the bigoted heritage of the US Constitution:

1.) It has vandalized the Thomas Jefferson monument, shrouded the Robert E. Lee monument in a trash bag and voted to remove the Stonewall Jackson monument.

2.) It has indicted Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler on a perjury charge in order to intimidate him into not filing a lawsuit against the City of Charlottesville.

3.) It has denied bail to political prisoner Christopher Cantwell on the grounds of “hate speech” which is a serious crime in the sovereign nation of Charlottesville.

4.) It has issued warrants for the arrests of White Nationalists who were in Charlottesville on August 12th who were forced to defend themselves after the Charlottesville Police stood down and were attacked by Antifa and Black Lives Matter counter-protesters as a result. The City of Charlottesville doesn’t think it is necessary to arrest anyone on the other side of that conflict though. The sovereign nation of Charlottesville has adopted a social justice system which weighs all violent crimes on the scale of wokeness. It is sometimes necessary and legally permissible to punch Nazis – wide latitude is granted on this point as anyone carrying a Confederate Battle Flag is also a “Nazi.”

5.) The sovereign nation of Charlottesville has declared itself a sundown town and allowed the anarchist street gang to chase people out of City Council meetings.

6.) Charlottesville has addressed the concerns of the community by allowing an anarchist mob to hijack and occupy City Hall whenever the mood strikes:

NBC29 WVIR Charlottesville, VA News, Sports and Weather

7.) Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy has continued to tune out White people at City Council meetings:

Bellamy enjoys seeing “little white men and the look on their faces when they have to look up to you.”

The sovereign nation of Charlottesville, which Mayor Mike Signer labeled the “Capital of the Resistance,” does not recognize the authority of President Drumpf. It hopes that this new lawsuit against the Unite the Right organizers and various Patriot groups can be the coup de grace to the US Constitution. It might even prove to be a model that can be exported to other cities which want to chill the constitutional rights of so-called American citizens who cling to heretical moral values and voted for the wrong candidate in the 2016 presidential election.

White Lives Matter Event Page

RSVP Facebook Event Page

Events: The Nationalist Front will be hosting two or three demonstrations in Middle Tennessee on Saturday, October 28th. We will hold the first demonstration in Shelbyville, TN in the morning. Then we will we pack up, eat lunch and travel to a nearby city to hold our second demonstration. We haven’t ruled out the possibility of hosting a third demonstration. Finally, we will have a private social gathering in the evening where everyone will have a chance to get to know each other better.

Date: Saturday, October 28th

Locations: Shelbyville, TN and Unannounced, TN.

Times: 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Speakers: Matthew Heimbach, Dr. Michael Hill, Dillon Hopper, Sacco Vandal, Jeff Schoep, Anti-Communist Action. Possibly more to come.

Participating Organizations: League of the South, Traditionalist Worker’s Party, National Socialist Movement, Vanguard America, Anti-Communist Action. Possibly more to come.

Fliers: Please share these on Facebook, Twitter, GAB and other social media. We also ask you to create new ones like with UTR in C’ville.

Meetup Location: The meetup location in Shelbyville will be announced as close to the event as reasonably possible in order to deter Antifa disruption. We will shuttle from there to the rally point of the White Lives Matter demonstration and back to the meetup point afterwards. If there is a second and third rally, we will follow the same procedure in other cities.

Description: The purpose of the White Lives Matter rally will be to protest the ongoing problem of refugee resettlement in Middle Tennessee and to draw attention to the recent Emanuel Samson church shooting in Antioch and the way this explosive story has been buried by the national media. The tragic events in Antioch, which was retaliation for the Dylann Roof shooting in Charleston, illustrated that the national media only cares about pushing its false narrative of White racism and black victimhood.

We also want to express our anger at the Trump administration which recently took Sudan off the travel ban list the day of the Antioch church shooting. It also followed up by announcing an “America First Refugee Program” which means dumping 45,000 refugees a year in places like Middle Tennessee while not saying a word when a Sudanese refugee who failed to assimilate goes on a rampage. The Trump administration has also failed to build the border wall and is working with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to pass a new version of the DREAM Act amnesty. Finally, we want to discuss the state of our movement and how we will move forward from here.

Objectives: Draw national attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting. Foster greater unity and cohesion within our own movement. Turn the page on Charlottesville.

Bring: We do not expect Shelbyville to become another Charlottesville. That’s not in our interest. It certainly isn’t in the interest of Shelbyville. We desire to hold a peaceful demonstration.

Do Not Bring: It is illegal to wear a mask in Tennessee. If you plan to bring a firearm, familiarize yourself with Tennessee’s gun laws. We do not recommend bringing any weapons to this demonstration. The organizations involved should be more than capable of providing for your security. DO NOT bring a swastika flag. This is a settled issue in the Nationalist Front.

Flags: This is a unity event within our movement. Each Nationalist Front organization will bring its own flag. Some people will use the Confederate Battle Flag. You are free to bring an American Flag. We would like to keep the styles and arguments over flags to a minimum.

Attire: Each organization within the Nationalist Front has its own dress code for events. League of the South will be wearing black LS polo shirts and khakis.

Lodging: We encourage you to make hotel reservations in Murfreesboro or Nashville, TN. We won’t be staying long in Shelbyville. This is a Middle Tennessee event.

Private Event: We will be hosting a private social gathering on the evening and night of October 28th. It will be a time to relax and enjoy the companionship of likeminded people in our movement after a long day of pro-White activism. We will be keeping the location of the private event a secret until the evening of October 28th where it will be either announced publicly via social media or privately to those in attendance at our two rallies. Stay tuned for information on this.

See you in Middle Tennessee. Hail victory!

Welcome To Commieville: Anarchists Hijack Charlottesville City Hall Again

In August, an anarchist mob demonstrated that it was bold enough to overthrow the Charlottesville City Council with impunity:

This evening the same anarchist mob came back to demonstrate to Mayor Mike Signer who really runs Charlottesville City Hall:

NBC29 WVIR Charlottesville, VA News, Sports and Weather

Isn’t this interesting?

In the United States, an anarchist mob has been allowed to effectively take over Charlottesville and cow the local government into submission. Since the mob has declared itself the sovereign power in Charlottesville, it is also asserting the prerogative to decide which classes of citizens the law applies to and which classes are above the law and exempt from punishment.

Such is the nature of “social justice.” It shouldn’t be confused with “equal justice.” Similarly, the whims of a vulgar anarchist mob should never be confused with a citizen’s right to due process.

We strongly believe the Department of Justice should investigate Charlottesville which continues to act like the leftwing version of a sundown town. Recently, the City of Charlottesville declared itself to be a sovereign nation in the process of developing its own foreign policy which “thwarts every white supremacist incursion, at every turn, and from every angle.”

Political Correctness Distorts DeAndre Harris Arrest Media Coverage

The Washington Post contacted me and requested that I comment on the DeAndre Harris story:

“Hi Hunter,

This is Derek Hawkins, a reporter with The Washington Post. I’m writing about the felony charge and arrest warrant issued for DeAndre Harris.

Harris’s attorney says the a League of the South member filed the criminal complaint against him. I saw that League of the South’s post on the incident linked to your website, and I was wondering if you could help clarify this for me. Feel free to email me here or call me at [Redacted].

Thanks very much,

Derek Hawkins

The Washington Post

Here is the email I sent in response:

“That’s correct.

It was a League of the South member who he attacked. When Unite the Right was declared an “unlawful assembly,” our members complied with law enforcement, dispersed and walked back to their vehicles in the Market Street Parking Garage. They were perused by DeAndre Harris and several of his friends who were carrying bats.

When they arrived at the parking garage, Corey Long rushed up from behind one of our members and attempted to steal his flag. As Long spun him around and pulled the flag into the parking garage, DeAndre Harris rushed up and swung and connected with a mag lite. This is what set off the now famous melee.

Shortly afterwards, another Antifa who hasn’t been identified rushed up from behind and hit our friend who was injured by DeAndre Harris a second time with a metal club. This happened in front of the Charlottesville Police Department. It was filmed by Buzzfeed. A police officer witnessed it but said it wasn’t his job to make arrests.

After compiling all the evidence in the video which shows the entire attack on August 12 in slow motion, my friend finally got around to pressing charges this afternoon. There are four videos linked on my website which show what happened as well as DeAndre’s lies in his press conference.”

How did The Washington Post cover the story?

“Indeed, after the charge was announced, Hunter Wallace, a prominent white nationalist, issued a celebratory tweet — along with a photo of the main character from the film “American Psycho” grinning widely.

“Did you hear the news?” Wallace asked. “DeAndre Harris is going to jail. Yeah, he is being booked this morning. His whole story was another race hoax.” …”

The Washington Post omitted everything I told them and instead only reported a sarcastic, celebratory tweet about the arrest that I posted on Twitter. The rest of the story completely ignored the assault committed by DeAndre Harris and reported gossip spread by Shaun King who is attempting to dox another individual. These are the people who call themselves “journalists.”

The Daily Progress also contacted me about the arrest of DeAndre Harris:

“Hey Brad, can you provide a comment or statement on the allegations made by S. Lee Merritt about the DeAndre Harris arrest warrant. Also, would you be able to confirm that Crews is the complainant in the case? It seems obvious at this point, but police weren’t allowed to verify it for me and I’d like multiple sources. Thanks.”

I sent this response through private messages:

“When #UniteTheRight was ordered to disperse from Lee Park, League of the South members complied with law enforcement and began to return to their vehicles in the Market Street Parking Garage. They were pursued to the parking garage by DeAndre Harris, his companions and a hostile crowd of Antifa.

DeAndre was carrying a mag lite. His friends were carrying baseball bats. As they pursued our people to the parking garage, they kept saying “give them the bat” and “do something my nigga.” Corey Long, who was seen earlier in the day with the flamethrower, approached Harold Crews from behind and grabbed his flag.

Corey Long grabbed the flag, spun Harold Crews around and attempted to rip the flag away from him. Harold attempted to hold onto his flag and pulled in the opposite direction. He wasn’t attempting to “spear” anyone. This was Corey Long’s second attempt to steal a Confederate flag. He burned one earlier in the day.

As Corey Long pulled the flag into the parking garage, DeAndre Harris swung his mag lite and connected. He hit Harold Crews on the left side of his face. It left a nasty wound. He started the fight in the parking garage which escalated from there. Several other League of the South members were injured in the melee including one young man who was beaten unconscious by DeAndre’s friends with the baseball bats.

A few moments later, a second individual – an unidentified White male Antifa – attacked Harold Crews from behind again. He hit him across the back of the head with a metal rod. Harold’s injuries from DeAndre’s attack with the mag lite were already visible by this point.

Yet another League of the South member was attacked alongside Harold. He is an older gentleman. He was attacked by a female Antifa medic who threw him to the ground and punched him in front of Charlottesville police officers. The officers didn’t make any arrests.

Hope that helps. That’s the truth. That’s what started the big fight in the parking garage. All this information including the video evidence was sent to Charlottesville Police and the FBI in August. They have sat on it for two months. Finally, we got sick of waiting and decided to move forward with the matter ourselves.”

This is how it was reported:

“When reached, Griffin contradicted Merritt’s statement, saying that Harris and his associates followed members of the League to the Market Street Parking Garage and instigated the scuffle. He alleged that Harris had in fact hit Crews with a flashlight and that an “unidentified white male Antifa” attacked Crews sometime later. …”

I suppose this is better.

I’m actually quoted this time. DeAndre Harris’s lawyer gives his account of events in six paragraphs in the story. The space devoted to our side of the story was one paragraph. There is far worse out there. It illustrates why only 16% of the public still has “a great deal of confidence” in the press. The majority of Americans know the truth can only be found on social media.

If it weren’t for platforms like Twitter, YouTube and WordPress, the public would have certainly never learned the truth about DeAndre Harris’s actions on August 12th:




The DeAndre Harris Race Hoax Exposed

DeAndre Harris nearly got away with it.

From the beginning, I said that the DeAndre Harris narrative was fake news. When I first heard about it on the way home from Charlottesville, I tweeted about it:

The lie that poor, innocent DeAndre Harris had been viciously attacked by Neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville had been spread half way around the world by Shaun King and the mainstream media before I arrived home. I knew from our people that they had been followed and attacked by DeAndre Harris and his friends while returning to their vehicles in the Market Street Parking Garage. The clip that was circulating on television had been deceptively cut to show only the aftermath rather than the full context of the incident which provoked the melee.

By August 24th, the truth that DeAndre Harris had started the fight in the parking garage in Charlottesville had come out. It had been captured in the livestream videos:

I contacted The Daily Progress and NBC 29 about the video. I sent it to detectives at the Charlottesville Police Department. I told the Associated Press what really happened in Charlottesville. I played the video in person on my smartphone for a news crew from Atlanta that was interviewing me about the arrest of Alex Michael Ramos. We bombarded reporters with the video of DeAndre Harris attacking with the mag lite on Twitter. No one was interested in investigating or reporting the truth.

From August through September, Occidental Dissent continued to report the truth about DeAndre Harris. We published stories about it on August 24th, August 27th, September 2nd and September 6th. Over a month ago, we had completely reconstructed DeAndre Harris’s actions and reported it to the police and various independent observers had figured out what happened in the parking garage by August 16th. The Charlottesville Police Department showed no interest in arresting DeAndre Harris even while swiftly arresting Daniel Borden and Alex Michael Ramos.

We had indisputable video evidence against DeAndre Harris by September 6th:


Nothing … the Commonwealth Attorney sat on it. The Charlottesville Police sat on it. The media refused to report on it after gleefully showing the out of context video.

Meanwhile, DeAndre Harris who started the huge fight in the parking garage was living it up while Borden and Ramos were held in jail without bail. With the help of Shaun King, he raised over $166,000 through GoFundMe by duping White liberals with guilty consciences into sending him money to pay for his medical bills. It appears he used the money from the melee that he had started to purchase a Mercedes Benz and a $2,000 pair of Nike Air Jordan Retros which he featured in his rap videos:

The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination condemned President Trump’s response to Charlottesville and issued an “early warning” on the United States. It released a document which cited “the terrible beating of Mr. DeAndre Harris” by name.

If we hadn’t finally gone to a magistrate to get a warrant, the truth about DeAndre Harris would have likely never been known to the public. Consider the fact that DeAndre Harris, Shaun King and the mainstream media managed to mislead America, all the donors who were duped into donating to this thug and the entire world as represented by the United Nations.

What else have they lied about in Charlottesville?

That’s the Heather Heyer known to the world. This is the Heather Heyer who died in Charlottesville on August 12th who the mainstream media didn’t want you to see:

Did you know Heather Heyer died of a heart attack in Charlottesville? This is her mom admitting it in an interview on NBC News. If you are curious about the real Heather Heyer, you can watch our reconstruction of her movements on August 12th.

Two months later, we still don’t know why James Fields, Jr. drove his Dodge Challenger into that crowd in Charlottesville. There isn’t a single media outlet in the United States which has shown any interest in interviewing him to get his side of the story.

Note: Oh, and the helicopter that crashed in Charlottesville? It crashed because of a mechanical failure. And yet, we were somehow blamed for that too.

BREAKING NEWS: DeAndre Harris Faces Felony Charge In #Charlottesville

Occidental Dissent has learned that DeAndre Harris who raised $166,000 in a GoFundMe scam is facing a felony charge for malicious wounding in Charlottesville.



Nationalist Front Responds To r/The_Donald

r/The_Donald has caught wind of our upcoming rally in Middle Tennessee. Predictably, some MAGApedes are sperging out about irrelevant issues which have nothing to do with this event. While I can’t speak for everyone in this coalition, I will try my best to respond to this.

What is the Nationalist Front event in Middle Tennessee about?

This event is about the recent Emanuel Samson church shooting in Antioch, TN, the fact that it was buried by the national media, the dumping of Third World refugees in Middle Tennessee and expressing anger at the Trump administration and Republican Congress for continuing to allow this to happen.

Recently, the Trump administration took Sudan off the travel ban list and quietly announced its so-called “America First Refugee Program” which is continuing to dump 45,000 refugees a year in the United States. The Trump administration congratulated itself for its “responsible and humanitarian approach to refugees.” After all the talk of the 2016 presidential campaign, it turns out that “America First” in reality meant we aren’t making any real changes to the refugee program.

It sounds like you are critical of Donald Trump.

I voted for Donald Trump.

I supported him from the beginning of his 2016 presidential campaign. It has been nearly a year though since the election and Third World refugees are still being dumped in Middle Tennessee, there isn’t a border wall and the Republican Congress is working on a new version of the DREAM Act. Donald Trump also had nothing to say about the Emanuel Samson church shooting in Antioch.

The difference between the Nationalist Front and Donald Trump is that we really believe what we say about the refugee resettlement program. There is no dissimulation on our part. We’ve opposed it for years. We were also truly outraged by the Emanuel Samson church shooting to the point where we are organizing a protest about it in Middle Tennessee.

Are you socialists?

Let me be crystal clear about this.

This event is not about economics. Unlike mainstream conservatives and libertarians, we believe economics is a secondary thing, which is to say, we are motivated by what is happening to our nation. We are motivated by what is happening to our culture and the well being of our people.

Basically, we all agree that the economy and the market exists to serve the nation, not the other way around. In contrast, mainstream conservatives and libertarians have this backwards. They believe the nation is synonymous with the market and exists to serve the market. They believe that economic growth is the most important thing and the measure of all things because they have a fundamentally materialist worldview. We don’t see ourselves as an economy.

The Dow Jones is booming and GDP is growing, but is that an accurate measurement of the state of our nation? Does it reflect the well being of places like Shelbyville, TN? We don’t think that it does when average household income is stagnating, the family is disintegrating, drugs are pouring into our communities and immigrants and refugees are being dumped in our communities which is compounding all of our social and economic problems. Just because the economy is growing and someone who lives in a distant zip code is making a fortune, it doesn’t follow that everyone is benefiting from this prosperity. The costs and benefits of this “growth” are not distributed equally.

Some of us are socialists. Some of us believe capitalism needs to be kept on a short leash. We disagree among ourselves on economics because it isn’t what drives us. Generally speaking, we don’t share the reverential attitude toward the free market of conservatives and libertarians.

Can you elaborate on this?

Sure, I will even give you a local example.

The Tyson Foods chicken plant in Shelbyville, TN is the embodiment of our skepticism of free-market capitalism. It is a magnet for Third World refugees and illegal aliens who work for low wages. It is a classic example of how the costs of immigration and refugee resettlement are socialized and borne by communities like Shelbyville while the profits are privatized by powerful corporations who prefer to maintain a cheap, pliant and ethnically diverse workforce.

Whereas the libertarian would celebrate Tyson Foods as an example of the triumph of the individual and free enterprise, we dislike how refugee resettlement and immigration combine with the profit motive to threaten the identity and social cohesion of our communities. We’ve been dealing with the black/white racial divide for 400 years and the pursuit of short term profit is creating social costs that communities like Shelbyville will still be wrestling with generations from now.

Are you leftists?

No, we belong to a different rightwing tradition.

The capitalist and the communist are united in their materialism and narrow view of man as an economic being. Both are “globalists” in outlook and tolerant of social differences. In the United States, the business community and the Far Left are allies in the push for “comprehensive immigration reform.” From our perspective, they are two sides of the same coin in undermining our culture.

We’re skeptical of the free market because we believe it undermines the social order. As the old saying goes, the merchant doesn’t have a country. We’re sick of watching the US Chamber of Commerce devastate our communities in order to make a quick buck.

Do you work for George Soros?

No, we don’t work for George Soros. That’s an absurd conspiracy theory. We have our own agenda. The League of the South has been active since the 1990s.

What is the point of rallies?

We’re holding rallies in order to advance our own agenda and grow our own movement.

Is this event in Shelbyville a “false flag”?

No, this is more retarded conspiracy nonsense. We’ve been holding rallies for years now. We held a rally about this very same issue in Murfreesboro and Shelbyville years before Trump was president.



Are you controlled opposition?

We believe the GOP Congress is controlled opposition. After all, what does it have to show for all the power it has been given? What is it even doing in Washington?

I’m worried Trump is going to be blamed.

Charlottesville never had anything to do with Trump. In reality, the groups who organized the rally in Charlottesville did so because they were sick of Trump and the GOP Congress, and wanted to chart their own course. The same is true of the groups who are coming to Shelbyville. It’s not our fault that the media blames Trump for everything including the hurricane that hit Puerto Rico.

Are you globalists?

We’re the exact opposite of globalists who support deregulation, open borders, free trade, multiculturalism, political correctness, etc.

The Alt-Right was invented by Hillary Clinton.

No, the Alt-Right has been around since 2008.

The difference between the Left and the Right rest on the spectrum of freedom. This means you are leftists.

We believe the difference between Right and Left is based on a preference for hierarchy and tradition over freedom and equality.

Why are you calling it a White Lives Matter rally?

For several reasons:

1.) First, we aren’t going to even bother with the cucks after what happened in Charlottesville.

2.) Second, the horrible Emanuel Samson church shooting which was buried by the national media shows how vicious anti-White hate crimes are swept under the rug. The Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom murder which was also in Tennessee is another example of this.

3.) Third, this event is for our own movement, which is explicitly pro-White.

4.) Fourth, the bickering after Unite the Right in Charlottesville.

The Nationalist Front is the False Right

Historically speaking, the Left were people who were for abstract freedom, equality and radical individualism, and the Right stood for order, hierarchy and tradition. In the United States, the liberal family is divided into liberals, conservatives, progressives and libertarians. It is really a bunch of leftists arguing among themselves over whether liberty or equality is the more important value.

But Charlottesville was a false flag …

No, Antifa attacked and disrupted the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, but that’s what they do everywhere. In Charlottesville and Berkeley, the police stood down and allowed anarchy to erupt cause they are extreme leftwing cities where law and order is hit or miss on any given day.

But Trump …

I’ve active for 15 years now. I was an activist before Trump was president. I will still be an activist long after he ceases to be president. Everything in this world isn’t about Trump. He has already said that he doesn’t want our support. We’ve already concluded he doesn’t keep his campaign promises.

You’re leftists pretending to be rightwing.

No, we are activists who are concerned about issues like the destruction of our Confederate monuments and refugee resettlement. As I have explained, we are motivated by cultural issues.

Do you work for the Deep State?

No, I am an activist. Just because Trump is president, I haven’t ceased being an an activist.

White Lives Matter News Coverage

The Tennessean:

“An alliance of several white nationalist groups — including those involved in an August rally in Charlottesville, Va. — has announced plans for a “White Lives Matter” rally this month in Tennessee.

The rally is scheduled for Sat., Oct. 28, in Shelbyville, located an hour southeast of Nashville.

Brad Griffin, who writes under the alias Hunter Wallace on his blog Occidental Dissent, announced that the event is being held by the Nationalist Front, a group of organizations that includes the National Socialist Movement, Traditionalist Worker Party, League of the South, White Lives Matter, Vanguard America and others. …”

Shelbyville Times-Gazette:

“The League of the South, a white nationalist group which held rallies in Shelbyville and Murfreesboro in 2013, plans a “white lives matter” rally in Shelbyville along with other groups on October 28, according to a posting on the website occidentaldissent.com.

Shelbyville Police Chief Jan Phillips told the Times-Gazette this morning that the group does not plan to hold a parade and therefore does not require a permit from the city. As the city police understand it, the group plans to stand on the side of the road, holding signs and handing out literature. …”

The Goldwater:

“The “White Lives Matter” rally October 28th in Shelbyville, Tennessee was announced today at Hunter Wallace’s website Occidental Dissent. Shelbyville is about an hour southeast of Nashville. We’ve mentioned Wallace’s work previously, Mr. Wallace’s work has actually been used as intel by federal agents seeking Antifa recently. The event is being hosted by the Nationalist Front, a group of organizations including the National Socialist Movement, Traditionalist Worker Party, League of the South, White Lives Matter, Vanguard America and others. Previously, we here at The Goldwater had reported how Wallace’s work was utilized by federal agents in an investigation into Antifa.

Part of the reason for the rally is the recent church shooting in Antioch by Emanuel Samson. Samson senselessly slaughtered [] people and injured several others as well as to “protest the ongoing problem of refugee resettlement in Middle Tennessee.” Despite proof that he specifically targeted white church-goers as revenge for the Dylann Roof shootings, the story has been mostly suppressed in the press. Sudan, coincidentally, was taken off the travel ban the same day the Antioch tragedy occurred. …”

Shelbyville Q&A

Why did you pick Shelbyville, TN of all places as the location for the next event?

The League of the South has been talking about holding another event in Middle Tennessee for the past two years now. It never materialized though. We discussed holding a rally there in the fall at our national conference in June. This was before Charlottesville.

We held a Southern Demographic Displacement rally in Murfreesboro, TN and Shelbyville, TN in 2013. In light of all the terrorist attacks and mass shootings by immigrants and refugees that have taken place since then, we have always talked about going back there.

This isn’t a new idea. It is something we have been thinking about doing for years now. I will explain why we decided to move forward with this after Charlottesville.

Why are you going back to Shelbyville, TN after Unite the Right in Charlottesville?

The main reason is because we don’t want another Charlottesville.

Charlottesville was the single most shitlib town in Dixie. We could have picked literally anywhere in the South to hold Unite the Right and it would have been in friendlier territory. The reason that Charlottesville turned out the way it did was because it had the demographics of Berkeley.

The single most important consideration in deciding where to hold our next public rally was the desire to avoid a place where the police would stand down. We also wanted to avoid the “state of emergency” trick. In Charlottesville, we had to deal with a Democrat governor, a Jewish mayor, a black city manager and a black police chief in a place that had proclaimed itself the “Capitol of the Resistance.”

We started looking for a location and our preference was a red county in a red state without a Democrat governor where police would be likely to do their jobs. We also wanted a location near a metropolitan area where there would be plenty of hotels and that was centrally located so the most people could travel there from the most places in the eastern United States at the least expense.

This meant the ideal location was either in Tennessee or Kentucky. The police in Tennessee and Kentucky have consistently done their jobs at all previous events. We narrowed it down even further to either Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Nashville, Chattanooga or Knoxville. After polling the issue, we decided on somewhere in Tennessee and close to Nashville.

If we held the event in Nashville for superior optics, the objection would have been like with the Charlotte rally that it would have been unsafe because it is a Democrat stronghold. Clearly, the prevailing sentiment out there is to err on the side of security rather than provocation.

Is Shelbyville the only Nationalist Front event on October 28th?

No, we have planned several events in the region but they aren’t good to go at this stage. We’re prepared to announce the rally in Shelbyville. We wanted to go ahead and tell you to mark your calendars for that date and that general area because we are less than a month out now. As soon as the other events are good to go, they will be announced. Stay tuned for more information.

What does Shelbyville, TN have to do with the shooting in Antioch, TN?

The federal government has been dumping these refugees all over Middle Tennessee. They’ve been dumping them in Nashville, Antioch, Murfreesboro, Shelbyville, etc. It was the documentary “Welcome to Shelbyville” which first drew our attention to the issue. We’re not saying that we are only going to be in Shelbyville. We are going there to protest what is happening to the entire region.




So, the Emanuel Samson church shooting kind of sealed the deal for you guys?

Pretty much. We had already zeroed in on the area and the date. We had already discussed going back to Shelbyville for years and over the summer. We were already considering two major themes for this event which was protesting the demographic transformation of Middle Tennessee by refugee resettlement and anger at the Trump administration and Republican Congress over the immigration agenda. We were already going there before Emanuel Samson opened fire on the church and Antioch and the media buried the story and that made what we were doing even more important.

Is this event only about the Emanuel Samson church shooting?

No, it is about the demographic transformation of Middle Tennessee, which we drew attention to years ago. It is not about this specific shooting. It is about ALL the consequences that are going to follow from changing demographics. Look at the UK or France. Do you think there will only be one mass shooting? We believe the Emanuel Samson shooting is the canary in the coal mine for Middle Tennessee. In fact, there were church shootings by a Muslim convert in Shelbyville last year.

Is this Unite the Right 2.0?

No, this is a “White Lives Matter” rally. Everyone who is pro-White can agree the Emanuel Samson church shooting and the media cover up is outrageous. We can all agree that if the shooter had been White and his victims had been black that it would have gotten wall to wall national coverage. The shooting was buried in the news cycle because it wasn’t “a story about race in America” that fit the narrative. The media which constantly accuses us of “racism” has a racist bias.

The phrase “Unite the Right” has downsides when we hold a unity event and it is followed by months of bickering and division online. This is a pro-White event for our movement. We’re not going to bother trying to appeal to cucks in the hope of “uniting” with them after what happened in Charlottesville. This event is going to be less Unite the Right and more Unite the White.

It will be like Unite the Right in one sense though: even though the Nationalist Front is spearheading this event, we want other groups to come. If we can’t find common ground and raise hell about something as outrageous as this, then we really ought to just pack it in and go home.

Is this Whitestock?

In Charlottesville, the idea was to hold a torchlight march, a public rally and an afterparty. In Shelbyville, we want to hold a public rally and a private event on private property. I wouldn’t label the private event “Whitestock” but it is a chance to do what we couldn’t do in Charlottesville.

Why hold another public rally so soon after Charlottesville?

Aside from all the reasons mentioned above, we’re not going to back down and be content to be closeted. Instead, we are going to soldier on and move beyond what happened in Charlottesville. It has been a black cloud hanging over us ever since August 12th and we need to move forward.

Is this going to be an armed event?

We haven’t discussed this. We’re looking into it. Tennessee doesn’t have the same gun laws as North Carolina where it is illegal to be armed at demonstrations on public property.

Can I bring the US flag?

If you want to bring the US flag, feel free to bring it.

Can I bring the Confederate Battle Flag?

If you want to bring the Confederate Battle Flag, feel free to bring it.

Can I bring the swastika?

No, we are going to draw the line there. Most of the screeching about optics in Charlottesville was due to one individual with a swastika flag. This would create too much of a distraction.

Are we going to use the US flag exclusively at this event?

No, we aren’t going to argue endlessly about flags and symbols. The reason we are holding this event is because it is a moral outrage and to express anger, not to show off our optics. We’re going to focus on the moral aspect of it and less on divisive arguments about flags and symbols.

What are the objectives of this event?

The main objectives are to foster cohesion within our movement, to move beyond Charlottesville and to draw attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting. We’re a lightning rod so if nothing else going to Middle Tennessee will force the issue into the public square.

How do we appeal to the normies except through optics?

The reason we are stigmatized is because we are perceived as “immoral.” We’re racists, bigots, white supremacists, Nazis, etc. That’s where we are going to attack with a moral message. Somehow, this debate has shifted from ethics to optics when it is the former that is the real problem.

Antifa and Black Lives Matter have terrible optics. Every leftwing group out there comes to their events and will undoubtedly show up at this one. They don’t care about optics. They don’t spend all their time obsessing over their divisions. In the streets, they care about numbers and unity.

Who is your target audience?

We’re not targeting normies with optics.

We’ve been down that road and have experience with doing that. The normies will watch you on television and Facebook Live. They will drive by in their cars. If they agree with you, they will honk their horn and keep on driving. If they disagree, they will say something insulting. Normies are individualists, materialists and conformists who are absorbed in their own lives.

The people who are actually interested in joining us are disaffected. They are already receptive to our message. We find these people mainly on social media. They are scattered around the country. They might hear that we are going to be in the area and come out to meet us. It’s those people who we want to recruit and organize. They are ready to get involved in the movement. At best, the normie will think you look good and will agree with your message, but is too preoccupied with his own life to take risks.

Normies are willing to change their views when they feel like they have permission from authority figures. In order for that to happen, an idea or cause has to hit a critical mass.

You seem to be more interested in moral qualities than optics. Why is that?

I believe character is more important than optics. It is our sense of right and wrong that drives our behavior, not our sense of beautiful and ugly. A man’s character is determined by his virtues and vices. Is he brave or cowardly? Is he honest or dishonest? Is he loyal and honorable? Does he have integrity? Does he have the fortitude and perseverance to overcome adversity?

These public events are character building exercises. We build our character by practicing our virtues just like we train at a gym. In order to change our circumstances, we need lots of men of strong character. If you are physically strong but morally weak, your strength is a facade.

The easiest way to get someone to commit to your cause, which isn’t to be confused with sharing your ideas, is to give them activities. This is one reason we hold public events. They make us morally stronger and more committed to pushing through the changes we desire in society. We don’t believe the -isms and -phobias have anything to do with traditional morality.

These events are opportunities to challenge and break those taboos.

What is your strategy?

In Middle Tennessee, the immediate goal is only to draw attention to the Emanuel Samson church shooting, and since we are a lightning rod simply going there will accomplish this. We are doing a service for the region which has been deluged refugees and immigrants. This has created enormous resentment but little in the way of action. We are willing to go there and take the heat to say this has to stop. No one else has the balls to do so even if they quietly agree with us.

More broadly, we want to target angry, alienated, disaffected people who don’t feel like their voices are being heard. We believe those people are the most persuadable and willing to join our case. If anything, your average upper middle class normie who goes to an Episcopal Church and votes for Marco Rubio is likely to support the dumping of refugees and illegal aliens in places like Antioch. So really, we want to go from place to place to find and recruit and gather those people to build our movement.

Tell me more about the optics of this event

We are shooting for something like Unite the Right without the one guy with the swastika flag. Otherwise, we thought those optics were fine. It depends on who comes though.

Is the Alt-Right coming to this event?

They are more than welcome to do so.

Tell us more about the private event

We understand that everyone has a different comfort level. There are some people who will want to go to a public rally, some who would like to attend a private event and some who would like to do both. If you want to come to the private event but not the public rally, you will have that option. This is what we did in Pikeville, KY and it was a lot of fun.

Do you want to fight with Antifa?

No, Antifa are just a nuisance. We want to hold a public rally, not clash with those clowns. In Tennessee, we expect they will be kept separated which didn’t happen in Virginia.

Who is speaking at this event?

Michael Hill
Matthew-John Heimbach

More TBA.

What should I wear to this event?

This will depend on the weather. It will be a lot cooler around Halloween in Tennessee. In cooler weather though, our men will be wearing the Lined Team Jacket or something similar.

I like what you are saying, but I don’t like your optics

In the future, we are going to moving to a more unified nationalist aesthetic although I don’t know whether that will happen before Shelbyville, or somewhere down the road at the next event. There are downsides to looking both too preppy and too incoherent. There are tradeoffs to be made between uniformity in optics and numbers and unity. We’re going to err on the side of strength in numbers and fostering cohesion within our movement.
