Interesting article arguing that efforts to silence old-fashioned conservative white nationalists like American Renaissance will only strengthen the more extreme elements of the “white right.” Read the article at Alternative Right.
Firstly, the pathetically embryonic nature of any kind of White nationalist movement that the establishment seems to believe is revealed though Mr. Taylor’s American Renaissance, Mr. Irving’s contrarian history, and other, similarly small, diffuse, and poorly-funded manifestations. When one considers the tremendous asymmetry of power, ostensible presence, and communicative ability between White nationalism in its entirety (casting the net even to the most irrational extremes) and the Establishment, one can perceive the tremendous fear felt of the former by the latter. What one might feel for some creature so dangerous even in infancy that one must kill it in the womb in order to allay the danger.
Secondly, the irrationalism and religiosity of the true believers of the antifa and their ilk. This is a subject worthy of greater discourse, but the religious nature of the Secular Humanism that forms the foundation of their “thought” (I hesitate to use that word in this context, seeing as there’s not a great deal of thinking actually involved on their part) is evident in their hateful, intolerant, and violent reactions to those they perceive as heretics. Indeed, the rantings of the Marxoid dimwits who populate these infantile, militant appendages of the intellectually bankrupt Left are becoming more and more deranged and devoid of any tangible association with reality.
Thirdly, and this is the aspect I find most interesting and sad: An impartial examination of American Renaissance’s positions vis-à-vis race and especially the Jewish Question would clearly reveal that American Renaissance could, in a sane world, serve to give voice to the West’s White population in a remarkably moderate fashion. By permitting this organization to be silenced, the establishment effectively forces the evolution of nascent White nationalism and the alternative Right towards more hardened structural forms. By this I mean organizational forms that are less vulnerable to penetration, compromise, control, suppression, or co-option. Indeed, it could be said—and many would say outright—that American Renaissance was an example of an organization that, through its philosemitic positions, open and forthright behavior, and Classical Liberal political positions, required no such countermeasures (a source of criticism one finds voiced by American Renaissance’s critics from the Right quite often).
