Nationalism and Socialism: A Toxic Combination

The events that happened in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday were truly horrific. What James Alex Fields did there ― running over counter-protesters with a car ― was hands-down the most despicable thing anyone in the new right has done. People who made Roman salutes, waved Confederate flags, and marched with torches the night before had the effect of provoking groups like Antifa to such an extreme level that they indiscriminately attacked the entire event the next day. The theme was supposed to be "unite the right" but these neo-Nazis came in and it actually had the effect of dividing the right. The instant Spencerism began to infiltrate this march, I immediately disabled tweet notifications on those (*except*, of course, those I know personally) who were actually promoting it. The larpers at the rally, which included Richard Spencer himself allegedly, had the effect of causing more harm than good ― the Proud Boys disavowed it. So did Generation Identity USA, which is what my friend Juan "Johnny Benitez" Cadavid is a member of. The Oath Keepers didn't disavow it (they never disavow anything after committing), but they sure as hell are not neo-Nazis because they do not believe the white race to be superior to any other nor do they believe in big government, which is something that neo-Nazis definitely believe in.

On Friday, July 7, 2017 ― two days before we would meet in person in Anaheim ― Kyle Chapman, better known as the Based Stick Man, and I both caught Richard Spencer red-handed advocating for wealth redistribution on Twitter. Wait, what? Wealth redistribution advocacy coming from a neo-Nazi? Well, of course, that did not come as a surprise to me, because "Nazi" is in and of itself a contraction of "Nationalsozialismus," German for "national socialism." No matter how nationalistic you are, you are not a Nazi if you do not also add socialism on top of said nationalism. Nazism is a form of ethno-nationalism whose ideological backers brand all foreigners as bourgeois. The reason why the Jews were scapegoated by the Nazi regime during WWII is because in Weimar Germany, they were the most successful people around. This is NOT conservatism by any means.

Nazism is also far more expansionist than libertarian traditionalist Christian populist Tea Party types like me ever will be. Remember Generalplan Ost? The Nazis wanted to expand into Russia and beyond, spreading their hateful ideology as they went. Is Trump an expansionist? No. Putting one's own citizens first is not the same as invading other countries. If Trump was another Hitler then he would invade Mexico, which he has never advocated for doing nor will he ever. If all of Trump's supporters were neo-Nazis, likewise, then they would actually be begging Trump to become a neocon. Instead, everyone on the new right, and the alt-lite especially ― Mike Cernovich, Tim "Baked Alaska" Gionet, Cassandra Fairbanks, Paul Joseph Watson, Lauren Southern, and, last but certainly not least, myself ― have been staunch non-interventionists from the very beginning, and Trump himself openly criticized Hillary Clinton for trying to pick fights with Russia to boot. For that, however, the media began to push an entirely different narrative that is extremely easy to debunk, so they fall back on this one.

Now, of course, we come to my favorite part regarding people who play this card: hypocrisy. Following all of the above on Twitter as mentioned in that previous paragraph, I got to see phone video and live stream capture that the mainstream media outlets won't show you. What do those videos show? Among other things, the people who responded to the sieg-heiling neo-Nazi scum the night before the rally with violent physical attacks were carrying Hammer-and-Sickle flags. Yes, really. There were actual Communists in the counter-protest. Why hasn't the left done anything to disavow these people? They constantly tell us to take the speck that is neo-Nazism out of our eyes, which I for one am using this blog post to do, yet they themselves have this plank that is Communism in their own eyes. That isn't the only plank in leftist eyes either, because they also have Palestinian supremacists (and extremely vile anti-Semites) like Linda Sarsour and Rasmea Odeh, not to mention anti-Israel, anti-Semitic black nationalist Muslims like Louis Farrakhan. These people are just as vile as the neo-Nazis that I am using this blog post to denounce, yet what has the left done about them? Absolutely nothing. This is why President Trump made his "alt-left" comment: because he knows about all of these things.

Hopefully this blog post sets the record straight as the days to the Laguna Beach rally this coming Sunday count down. In the wake of Charlottesville, the Colombian-American legal immigrant friend of mine mentioned in Paragraph 1 and myself have both been getting a very large number of threats from leftists based on the very false pretenses that this blog post openly debunks, and last night's CBS/KCAL news has allowed me to correct the record slightly. That said, to call anyone racist for wanting to build the border wall (the vast majority of Latinos who are here legally as opposed to illegally support it) is a blatant lie, and, likewise, to call anyone who wants to give American citizens first dibs and legal immigrants second dibs is also a blatant lie. Immigration was something that even Bill Clinton was tough on, yet the mainstream media has fomented so much ignorance in people that they have been led during the Obama years like sheep to the slaughter. Trump was elected because a lot of people who were not hard-line leftist partisans can see right through this narrative for the lunacy that it is.

If Babying Inner Cities is Racist, Then So is Babying Israel

Because I have been on the scene at rallies more often, I haven't taken to this blog in a while, but recently there has been an issue of one speaker I met on July 9 that I have since become very good friends with. Johnny Benitez, a relatively new arrival on the new right scene but still a major player who I have been having a lot of fun at rallies with, is being accused of anti-Semitism by establishment RINOs, why, exactly? For opposing all foreign aid packages to all countries including the $38 billion handout that gets sent to Israel every year. Not only is this purely fiscal reason for wanting to cut aid to Israel not in any way motivated out of hatred for the Jewish people at all, but, given the arguments even paleocons like Dinesh D'Souza use as far as welfare dependency is concerned, the exact opposite is true.

100 years after the Civil War, Jim Crow was beginning to break down in the same way that slavery broke down. The Democratic Party, after having lost the slavery argument, passed all sorts of segregation laws meant to keep blacks held down, but that too failed. As a result, President Lyndon Baines Johnson came up with another conspiracy to keep blacks segregated in a completely different manner: through welfare dependency. As Johnson put it, blacks were to be given "just enough to quiet them down; not enough to make a difference" in exchange for "voting Democratic for the next 200 years." All they care about is their vote. They do not care about a change in their condition, and the establishment GOP has ever since then been capitalizing on this LBJ rhetoric.

Why is it, however, that the same establishment Republicans who capitalize on LBJ's conspiracy to keep blacks held down also want to keep our allies dependent on handouts? Regardless of its intended destination, a handout is still a handout. What do handouts do? They keep those whom they're handed out to dependent on them. People who are not trained to manage money wisely go out and spend it all, then beg the government for more, and the vicious cycle continues. A handout to a foreign government carries exactly the same problem. This foreign aid package does quiet Israel down, sure, but does it actually make a difference in Israel's ability to defend itself? It may temporarily, but as soon as Israel spends it all on military equipment, it all disappears. Rather than freeing Israel to defend themselves by unchaining and deregulating their own defense market, establishment Republicans want to make Israel a welfare slave to the United States.

Although Israel's foreign aid package is the largest one, it's not the only one we're dealing with, moreover, and if combined with all the other foreign aid packages that involve, for the most part, taxpayer money being shipped overseas, the result may be very well be a major contributor to our national debt, which is already outrageously high. How much of a debt contributor the packages are is unknown, but what should be noted is that this money which is being offshored to defend other nations, unlike trade deficits, is very difficult to repatriate. President Trump ran his entire campaign on putting Americans first both fiscally and socially, and made repatriation of overseas money a very significant priority when it comes to doing that. If that is the case, then why keep those foreign aid packages in place? It does not make any sense, neither economically nor with respect to the previous two paragraphs.

To recap, we're dealing with a case in which the accusation is not only false, but a total projection of personal guilt onto someone who they clearly do not understand the worldview of. I for one am very hopeful that people begin to realize this given enough time, but if not, we just have to keep pushing. To those who I will be seeing in Laguna Beach on Sunday, August 20 (which includes the very person that this post is defending), I hope this inspires you enough to look into this more, and please make sure this gets shared in order to set the record straight. Thank you.
