The term “Alt-Right” has been getting so much pixel time since Hillary Clinton’s speech last week that I am avoiding its use to keep it from devolving into a blank pair of glottal syllables. Yet the term has been around since 2010, if not earlier. I’ve used it prior to hearing of Richard Spencer’s coinage.
A number of writers — friendly, hostile, and confused — have attempted to define this movement and Vox Day hits the bulls-eye with his sixteen-point “What The AltRight Is.” While he describes our movement as an essentially pro-Western, pro-White assertion of right to an identity and a future, he also extrapolates Alt-Right’s broader belief in the right of all nations to exist and where circumstances force them, to resist imperial aggression. Points five and six specifically:
5. The Alt Right is openly and avowedly nationalist. It supports all nationalisms and the right of all nations to exist, homogeneous and unadulterated by foreign invasion and immigration.
6. The Alt Right is anti-globalist. It opposes all groups who work for globalist ideals or globalist objectives.
With that in mind, what do you think of this Iranian video?
Inspiring. That is how I would describe it, in spite of the story’s cheesy inshallah deliverance. As to the dark-skinned kid: I don’t know anything about that country’s Aryānām – Abid relations but the primacy they give him ironically Americanizes the message. All that aside, a nationalist understands that a human being is at home among those who love him and whom he can trust, and what those people have in common is that they come together when wolves circle.
The extent of my personal familiarity with Iran begins and ends with having worked with two Persian colleagues for a stretch of years and I’ve found them both to be decent and gentle men, to a fault. That said, individuals form collectives and sympathy for people in their own country doesn’t scale into good will for them as invader-diaspora.
As an American in spirit and witness to the current invasion my adoptive country, as well as a veteran of the United States Army who never saw honor in the trampling over another’s homeland, I approve of that video.
An unrelated addendum to the above: this next video (h/t Camlost) was recorded and later uploaded by a female SJW while riding as a passenger in a Lyft car. She harangues and threatens the driver with exposure on Gawker unless he takes the Hawaiian bobblehead doll off his dashboard. The driver was patient, he never took her rhetorical bait, and he eventually dumped her off on the side of the road. Nevertheless as described in a follow-on story, he lost his job. The story ends happily though: he was rehired and the public’s wrath landed on her.
One of the common motifs in literature about Communism in its terror phase, from the accounts of the Bolshevik revolution to the Khmer Rouge camps, is the fanatical zeal of young female cadres. They are described as sadistic and devoid of guilt, doubt, or conscience in ways that even the most evil men aren’t capable of being.
I also think that Pepe is ready for a girlfriend.
