FNC: “The Rise of the Alt-Right Movement”

The amount of attention the Alt-Right has received (much of it inaccurate) is astonishing. From FNC:

WaPo: An Alt-Right Primer

In WaPo, David Weigel (ahem) has a brief, laundry list piece on “What’s the alt-right? A primer”:

While reporters like Rosie Gray, Olivia Nuzzi, and Benjy Sarlin have reported on the alt-right’s success for a year, and while the Southern Poverty Law Center has closely monitored its success, the movement remains elastically defined, harboring some terms and personalities that remain obscure or impenetrable. This is a guide — which can and will be updated — to the basics.

The piece briefly discusses:

  • Jean Raspail’s Camp of the Saints
  • Breitbart News
  • Jared Taylor
  • The Political Cesspool
  • Marine La Pen
  • Nigel Farage
  • Richard Spencer
  • Sam Francis
  • Walt Bismarck (Never heard of him before! – LM)

The Hag’s Full Anti-Alt-Right Speech

Here’s The Hag’s full speech against the Alt-Right from today. It’s not a debate with Alt-Right ideas, but rather a complete ad-hominem mischaracterization of it, which was the point.

Where she targets the Alt-Right most directly begins at 28:30.

Logic 101

Here’s a wonderful quote from Steve Sailer today:

We’re always being told that white flight occurred because whites succumb to irrational Stereotypes about blacks being crime prone, so, logically, these black families are saving a bundle by living by in safe yet low rent neighborhoods.

Trump is Hitler: Hillary AmeriKKKa Ad Edition

Here’s the vaunted Hillary ad released today against the Alt Right.

I don’t know. If you ask me, the ad backfires, with hilariously histrionic montage editing (which no one will ‘buy’) and perhaps also the unintended consequence of providing a free national publicity to Breitbart News and American Renaissance.

How many jellyfish out there might now say: “Breitbart News? What’s that?”… and proceed to Google it.

U-Chicago vs. Safe Spaces

This is good development.

The University of Chicago has issued a letter to all its incoming freshman, part of which reads:

Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to the college at the University of Chicago. Earning a place in our community of scholars is no small achievement and we are delighted that you selected Chicago to continue your intellectual journey.

Once here you will discover that one of the University of Chicago’s defining characteristics is our commitment to freedom of inquiry and expression. … Members of our community are encouraged to speak, write, listen, challenge, and learn, without fear of censorship. Civility and mutual respect are vital to all of us, and freedom of expression does not mean the freedom to harass or threaten others. You will find that we expect members of our community to be engaged in rigorous debate, discussion, and even disagreement. At times this may challenge you and even cause discomfort.

Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so called ‘trigger warnings,’ we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own.

The last paragraph is the kicker.

Never did I imagine I’d see a major university ever take this position.

Then again, is this the official position of U-Chicago or just the current Dean of Students, who someday may be superceded by an SJW.

Sudden Jihad Syndrome – Pt. 48,193

Our Sudden Jihad Syndrome event of the week takes us to Australia:

(Reuters) – A British woman was stabbed to death on Wednesday at a backpackers’ hostel in Australia and two people were injured, one seriously, in what police say may have been an “extremist” attack.

A spokesman for Queensland state police said the suspected attacker, in Australia on a tourist visa, was a 29-year-old French national who had yelled “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the greatest) when arrested.

A 21-year-old British woman died at the scene of the attack, south of Townsville in the state’s far north, police said. A 30-year-old British man was in critical condition in hospital.

How in god’s name people like this managed to find there way to the island of Australia is itself a testament to how far the West’s pathological altruism has taken it.

E.U. President: “Borders are the worst invention ever.”

Jean-Claude Juncker is European Commission President, in other words, the most powerful man of the E.U. Today, lest there be any doubt, he told us what he really thinks about borders and national sovereignty:

Speaking at the European Forum Alpbach on Monday, Jean-Claude Juncker called on Europe to show “solidarity” with refugees and described borders as the “worst invention” ever produced by politicians.

“We have to fight against nationalism,” said Juncker, who is the president of the European Commission, the EU’s executive branch. “We have the duty not to follow populists but to block the avenue of populists.”

He added: “Borders are the worst invention ever made by politicians… In the concentration of globalisation and European problems, we must not lose our way.”
