The situation, then, is that conservatives dismissed by the self-described ‘alt right’ as light-weight, hold protests haunted by alt right figures, who hold nearby protests. The Democrats at the SPLC then try to run the groups together, while further suggesting the Boomer ‘alt right’ is ‘young people,’ many (re the ‘MyLow’ KGB fabrication) involved in ‘pedophilia’ and homosexual activity along with their obvious fear of Likkud.
Some of the conservatives furthermore go along with this SPLC last move: though then obviously, not the first…. But this is all another story. See the earlier post in the blog, dealing with the war on younger people. Let’s just ad: a big part of the war is on their reputation. Fraud tactics supposedly justly used to stamp out the supposed evil of anti-Semitism, are simply retooled to attack non-geriatric, same-ethnos leaders. Once fraud begins, only capital wins.
Spencer was at the alt right rally alongside the more ‘conservative’ one…. I didn’t learn much from the SPLC about Spencer in this case, but some other sources suggested a poor crowd showing for his speech and a new turn to the theme of ‘Unite the Right.’ Twitter then gives me https://twitter.com/RichardBSpencer/status/875908026032697344 Here Spencer has a poster with all kinds of NS themes, suggesting again some sort of interest in uniting ‘neo-Nazi’ and Klan material. So far involvement with NS notions has been rather minimal for Spencer, and I suspect it is going to stay that way. Things will likely be just at the level of images. Still it makes it all more difficult to show what a stupid charge ‘Nazi’ has been against an Anglo kid like Spencer….
Yet of course it is possible, he could take up neo-Nazi ideas.
In INVESTIGATING THE ALT RIGHT, I give four criteria for being a Neo-Nazi:
‘1) a revising of the negative historical image of Adolf Hitler and Germany, 2) a revising of positivistic approaches to Judaism which bracket out Hitler’s vision of Jews, so as to help bring the serious curtailment or death of Jewish power, & 3) a pursuit of National Socialist themes of ‘Aryan’ DNA purity and flourishing, esp. via use of government coercion. Then also one might add: 4) a (focus on a) re-militarising of Germany….’
Spencer has perhaps suggested some ideas along the idea of #3 in terms of coercion, but then also, well, wow, he married a Russian woman and had a child with her. I hate to break it to the peons, but the Germans did not consider Russia to be an ‘Aryan’ people….
As far as #1, #2, and #4 go – I am not familiar with Spencer ideas along these axes. Actually, he seems more in favour of positivism than against it, suggesting neo-Darwinian ‘science’ will show the greatness of white DNA. Etc. He is just not a neo-Nazi.
‘NS-like’ images can be interpreted in many ways. Maybe they are more, Afrikaner Weerstand images? Spencer plays with this ‘neo-Nazi’ label, but we all know, he is an Anglican and a Klan sympathizer, and no friend of Germany at all, excepting insofar as his art benefits all peoples through its question raising. Spencer just seems a bit confused to me, as if he is suffering. It is no doubt, not easy to stay in the media spotlight without new ideas, though Spencer is quite an artist and actor.
