Well, this sounds familiar…
Andy Warski has made it to the big time! As article bashing him at a site called Right Wing Watch was featured on SPLC’s Hatewatch blog.
Over the past month, prominent alt-right personalities on YouTube have carved out platforms for themselves on a handful of popular livestreamed political debate channels, where they’ve engaged in debates against “classical liberal,” libertarian and “anti-social justice warrior” YouTube talkers.
The series of debates, which have been affectionately dubbed “bloodsports” by their participants, have provided the white nationalist alt-right with its latest chance to thrust itself into the political consciousness of young people and to appeal to members of some of the subcultures that have splintered from the movement in recent months.
One of the most prominent channels hosting these debates belongs to Andy Warski, a YouTube personality who has grown increasingly sympathetic to the alt-right. Warski appeared this month on the alt-right, anti-Semitic podcast “The Daily Shoah,” hosted by host Mike “Enoch” Peinovich, where he said that he thought people falsely believe Peinovich advocates genocide. (The word “Shoah” translates to “Holocaust.”)
In the last few weeks, Warski has hosted debates featuring nearly every popular white nationalist YouTube figure, including J.F. Gariepy, Tara McCarthy, Richard Spencer, Colin Robertson (“Millennial Woes”), Greg Johnson, Peinovich, James Allsup, Nick Fuentes and Tim Gionet (“Baked Alaska”). More often than not, these white nationalist personalities have been paired against conservative opponents who offer incredibly weak pushback to their arguments. On only a few occasions have they faced true, strong counter-arguments. One of these debates—featuring Sargon of Akkad and Tarl Warwick (“Styxhexenhammer666”) debating Spencer and Gariepy—became the highest-trending live video on YouTube during its broadcast. Afterward, Spencer declared that he had “destroyed” in the debate.
This raises the age old question: if their arguments are so bad, wouldn’t you want people to hear them so they’d know how stupid and evil these people are? For instance, I did in fact listen to all of the Sargon/Spencer debate. Everyone had a couple good points, but my conclusion was that Sargon is an idiot and Spencer a smug megalomaniac. I was not suddenly possessed of an obsession with murdering Jews and setting myself up as an elite in an ethnostate.
SJWs know that if their opponents are given a chance to speak, some people will realized that they aren’t all rabid, drooling nazis. And SJWs are so incompetent that they can’t even take down a Fake-Righter like Spencer, so they rarely agree to debate. So the only other option is deplatform and attack anyone willing to let them talk.
Well, we knew the supposedly alt-right caused violence was all narrative but it’s always surprising when someone not on that side of things comes out and admits it.
An “Independent Review Of The 2017 Protest Events In Charlottesville, Virginia,” by a team headed by Timothy J. Heaphy of the Richmond VA law firm Hunton & Williams commissioned by the Charlottesville city government, has just been released. The results are utterly damning. No accusation leveled on August 12 even approached the actual conduct of the Charlottesville Police Department. The only question: whether incompetence or malevolence was the greater factor.
The Heaphy Report raises major issues about the future of free speech in the United States, the influence of Leftist radicalism within government, and the politicization of law enforcement. But, as lawsuits are already pending, the specific events, decisions, and tactical police deployments highlighted in the Heaphy Report are likely to draw the most attention in the immediate future.
The smoking gun: the Heaphy report’s finding that the police never intended to separate the two sides, prevent violence, or allow the demonstration to take place. Instead, the Charlottesville Police wanted violence, which could then be used as an excuse to break up the demonstration.
Well worth reading the whole thing.
Gavin McInnes HAS TO GO BACK
If this isn’t a a good reason to disavow conservatism once and for all, I don’t know what is. We have to disavow the alt-right and go back to promoting “socially liberal and fiscally conservative values”?! That’s conservatism? No wonder we’re losing. If that’s what Gavin wants, okay, but he needs to go back to Canada and try to make it work there, not tell Americans what to do.
Also, Gavin, the name “Proud Boys” is gay. Sorry.
There’s been a lot said about the dumbness (or even perhaps lack of genuineness) of some of the people who organized or attended the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, but the facts are pretty clear that this isn’t a one-sided simple situation where bad racists and Nazis showed up and caused all the violence. The city and state officials and police totally blew-it, or maybe just obeyed their masters in orchestrating a pretty set-up to make everyone on the Right look like Nazis and tarnish the President. It appears from in-person accounts and raw footage that the Alt-Left (thank you, Mr. President) was likely more violent and disruptive than the Right. If they had just stayed home, there would have been no violence whatsoever, and if they had dispersed and gone home instead of rioting through the streets, no one would have died.
To say that the counter-protesters were just as violent is being rather too generous to the leftists. But the narrative won’t allow even that. The narrative says “there is only one side to blame” and many, supposedly on the Right, fell into line and obediently parroted all the correct talking points.
Ah, but can you just guess who decided to support those darling Alt-Left counter-protesters?
On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes.
McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”
Mitt Romney ✔ @MittRomney
No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.
John McCain ✔ @SenJohnMcCain
There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so
Neither of these gentlemen can claim ignorance of Antifa; the reason both of them piped up is that President Donald Trump mentioned them in his Tuesday press conference. Left-wing politicians and media personalities responded by thundering “there is only one side” for all right-thinking Americans to be on, because there was only one squad of villains on the ground in Charlottesville.
McCain and Romney obediently bent the knee to this narrative. At the very least, they’re agreeing Antifa should be invisible, accepting the incredibly stupid idea that calling out their violence somehow dilutes criticism of the Tiki Torch Terror. Mentioning Antifa is damned under the left’s new doctrine of “Whataboutism,” which originally held that history began with the inauguration of President Trump and all prior Democrat sins were absolved, but has mutated into an unlimited free pass for the #Resistance to do whatever it takes to bring down the Trump administration without a peep of protest from tame Republicans.
Senator Marco Rubio went much, much further. He launched a brief tweetstorm that completely absolved Antifa of all responsibility for its actions in Charlottesville, blaming all violence “one hundred percent” on those who organized the events leading to the “Charlottesville terrorist attack”.
Can you just hear the Left crying in fear, crying that they told you so: the right-wing death squads were coming? They’ll probably take this as proof. Over-looking the fact that this is primarily a defensive response to the violence the Left has been promoting and serving up for quite a while. If you keep dishing up violence, are you really going to be surprised if the objects of that violence eventually turn around and dish it right back? We could just as easily say to the Left: we told you so; if you don’t stop asking for it, you’re gonna get it.
The Proud Boys provided Lauren Southern with a protective team when she attended the recent free speech rally at Berkeley (turned confrontation, as usual). From their website: The Kids Are Alt-Knights; Based Stick Man Organizes Offical Miltary Arm of the Proud Boys
Shock waves were sent through the Proud Boy universe yesterday as Kyle Chapman, better known as the internet meme “Based Stick Man” announced on facebook he planned to start a Fraternal Order of Alt Knights (or “FOAK”) as a tactical defensive arm of the Proud Boys. The need for defense has grown since recent premeditated attacks by the radical Marxist group “Anti-Fa” have become the norm at any cultural event politically to the right of Jane Fonda…

Fox Crimson over at Qu Qu Media provides a more serious look into what alt-furry is:
One thing still remains very clear and that is just how many people, even with the furry community at large, fail to grasp the sheer irony involved with altfurry as it began primarily as a reactionary movement whose purpose was to mock the extreme far left elements that had cropped up in the fandom in recent years. SJW’s, BLM sympathizers, punks, anarcho-communists and the like began whining louder than ever before following Trump’s victory on November 9th 2016. In the wake of Trump’s inauguration and the Berkley riots earlier this year, these fanatical leftists began demanding concessions that spilled over into the furry community. The more virulent among them began using passive-aggressive tactics to insult and shun anyone who didn’t adhere to their worldview.
What he describes sounds very similar to GamerGate in that many alt-furry hold fairly liberal views but are pushed into a position of fighting back because the totalitarian thought police won’t leave them alone. SJW convergence is everywhere and needs to be fought everywhere. You might think furries are degenerate and barking mad, but strange times call for strange allies.
