I have been listening to the most of the thought leaders of the Alt-Right YouTube live streams and other video content they are putting out and trying to deduce where the movement is headed. When I first got into the movement, I was attracted by how the Alt-Righters rejected communism, cultural marxism, post modernism and displayed allegiance to traditional American and Western values of freedom, self determination, ancestry, traditional gender roles and history; Also denouncing moral degenerate behavior, promoting self improvement, intellectual improvement, anti-globalism, putting America first and White Identity.
This was my Impression since 2015.
But my impressions may be wrong, at least with one figurehead of the Alt-Right and that is Richard Spencer. Now, I, like many that consider themselves Alt-Right/identitarianism, got into this movement by the Alt-Light. First it starts with mass immigration and the destruction of the West all the way down to race and IQ to end at identitarianism and the 14 words. I have listened to a lot of what Richard has to say and I respect his opinions. I have watched a lot of his speeches and interviews, read some of his blogs and watch his new live streams on YouTube regularly. I’m not a Spencer zealot, thus that gives me the ability to critique him. From watching his streams, it has come out that there is a possible run for some political office and he said that a few thing that could possibly be part of his platform is Medicare For All, Universal Basic Income and Student Loan Forgiveness. Now if I am not mistaken, didn’t the Alt-Right just spend the last three years fighting the marxist, who are the ones who preach this egalitarianism bull shit? I think I remember Richard saying something like “white people can mow our own God damned grass’’. Well if whites are so good, why do we need these marxist socialist programs? I personally think we don’t, we can mow our own God damned grass, and we can earn our own money and take care of ourselves. Now I know there are NatSocs in the Alt-Right which means these welfare programs would be just for the whites in the Ethnostate I guess. I also DO understand the need for collectivism, nation over the individual, but in some cases. Collectivism isn’t necessarily communism as the mainstream Republicans would have you think. Yes we should take care of each other and the white race is only as strong as our weakest, but as we can see since the 1960’s here in the US, programs like these, Medicare and Wealth Transfer Payments, aka, Universal Basic Income (UBI) aka Welfare, takes away the personal responsibility part of being, well, responsible. Also there have been some European countries that have tried the UBI and it didn’t work, It had no positive impact. That care for one another should come from the community and be done out of pride of being white, not the government. What are we going to do, tax people to just give it back to them? What if they don’t want to work and just suck off the rest of us? There are whites that are like that ya know and if we are collective, well we have to take care of the lazy whites as well. I think even the Third Reich had a work requirement.
When it comes to Richard’s idea of Student Load Forgiveness, I actually think it’s kind of fair. So many people were told by state run schools that “YOU HAVE TO GO TO COLLEGE” and all the shit that comes with government basically taking over the student loan business, guaranteeing the loans, which in turn, again like anything subsidized, prices skyrocketed for students who were then told by the same government to go to these overpriced, marxist institutions and not to worry about the cost. It’s the governments fault and they should pay for it which actually means that WE will be paying for it. Only 20% to 30% of people in this country really need to go to college.
Now I am not here to divide the Alt-Right. I just want to hash out the ideology.
But with all that said, I still look forward to hearing more from Richard. He is an inspiration and an intellectual leader in the movement. He has a lot of skin in the game and that is something to be respected.
