Mass Confusion about the Alt-Right
“Tim Pool is “Alt-Right”? I am as confused as ever about the definition of “Alt-Right”.”
Yes, the confusion is intentional, from both the Left and the Right.
Rhe Left tries like mad to recast the Alt-Right as “White Suprәmac!sm” with all the connotations, hәll’s bells, and dog-whistles of a Naz! pogrom.
“The Alternative Right, commonly known as the “alt-right,” is a set of far-right ideologies, groups and individuals whose core belief is that “white identity” is under attack by multicultural forces using “political correctness” and “social justice” to undermine white people and “their” civilization.”A statement from the Southern Poverty Law Center
Even supposedly unbiased sources define the Alt-Right in terms of their stances on rac!sm and gender equality.
“(in the US) a right-wing ideological movement characterized by a rejection of mainstream politics and by the use of online media to disseminate provocative content, often expressing opposition to racial, religious, or gender equality.”The Oxford Dictionary
Moreover, you won’t find a generous description of the Alt-Right online, due to shadow banning and leftist bias sheltered under the guise of PC-ness.
OTOH, Alt-Righters themselves won’t offer a concise description of the Alt-Right, because they refuse to be pigeonholed. The Alt-Right megaphone, Brett Stevens, wrote this.
“This brings us to the question: is the Alt-Right a movement, or a set of ideas?
Not all of the people above participate in [nor] organize Alt-Right organizations, nor do they attend demonstrations; they merely agree with its ideas. In my view, this is what makes the Alt-Right so dangerous to the mainstream: a few actors get out there on the internet or in the streets, and at home a much larger group are saying, “I’ve been waiting for someone to say this for a long time.”
As with most things conservative — because we do not have a single ideological idea, as does the Left — this audience translates into a big tent. Some agree with generalities and find certain specifics off-putting, and others agree with the totality except for some positions that they find alienating.”Amerika (Brett Stevens): Has The Alt-Right Failed? (2018-10-17)
As you can imagine, this stance of being open to interpretation has a few pros and cons.
I’m not sure whether I would be identified as Alt-Right or not, but I do read Alt-Right articles periodically and I feel like I have a rough handle on the main attractive features of the Alt-Right, or at least what I personally find appealing about it. So since this is open to interpretation, here’s my own comprehensive interpretation of the Alt-Right.
What is the Alt-Right?
The current mass migration to the Right that is going on now as a cultural movement stretches worldwide (although some nations like Malaysia and Vietnam are lagging about 10 years behind and are still caught up in Feminism). This trend includes foreign nations of non-white ethnicities, but only Western entities use the Alt-Right branding. As such, the core values presented by the Alt-Right are not confined to the white race, and this is especially evident when we see multiracial coalitions being branded, however ironically, as “White Supremac!st” hate groups. The focus on the Alt-Right being exclusively about whites, white culture, hate, etc. is therefore a very biased, narrow, and ethnocentric concept of the Alt-Right.
More broadly, the grand majority of Alt-Right philosophies and values are more intensely concerned about cultural preservation, social capital (public trust and good will), sociopolitical efficacy and order, and the multigenerational security and welfare of one’s family and home community – values that any sane person would agree are important to the individual, to the culture, and to the nation. Reading between the lines reveals that Alt-Right personalities react strongly to anything that upsets these values, although they don’t always state this explicitly.
If I were to try to nail down the primary appeal (and the glorious aspects) of the Alt-Right, I would say that the metaphysical experiences that inspire the Alt-Right are commonly manifested in the humble comradery, In-Group loyalty, social identity, and societal stability that is found in ethnic consanguinity — a social order reminiscent of that portrayed in The Lord of the Rings.
What we observe in the Alt-Right is a collection of independent thinkers that have a strong conviction of these values. In this view, it is recognized that traditional (AKA “cis”) marriage, cultural homogeneity (i.e. ethnic, racial, language, and religious), as well as hierarchies of authority, are all strongly conducive to the beneficent ends of domestic bliss, homeland, and homestead.
But in the Woke West, Progressives see everything through the lenses of equality, gender, and race. In this view, all ante-Enlightenment values (including Biblical values) are summed up as anti-democratic, anti-PC, hateful, phobic, racist, sexist, and so on, and are therefore broadly censured, explicitly condemned, thoroughly rejected, and roundly scorned.
But outside of the Western progressive microcosm, all of the aforementioned values find appeal and continual endurance across many races and countries because most people of any race can immediately recognize these factors as a meaningful source of life and social vitality. For example, the Asian version of this set of values is called Filial Piety. Filial Piety is obviously Patriarchal and family/clan-centric in nature, and is largely accredited as the reason why Chinese society has endured for millennia.
In conclusion, I think the Alt-Right is not all about racism, etc. This is only propaganda that the PTB want sheeple to believe as a way to scare them away from discovering the ancient Truths of civilization. We should be wary of how they prioritize these narrow views to the point of being all-encompassing. We should also recognize that all the blame, shame, and fear tactics from the radical Left may very well originate from psychological projections and are thus indicative of an extremely poor willingness to establish social capital (and interracial harmony too). As Vox Day says, “Liberals always project.”
Blood is Thicker than Water
It just so happens that the majority of Alt-Right voices in a white majority culture are White and are therefore expressing the glorious joys of being as White as God made them. I think this should not be myopically interpreted as hatred towards non-whites, but rather a celebration of Anglo-Saxon culture.
It wouldn’t be surprising nor controversial at all if the majority of Talmudic philosophers were Jәwish and therefore defended the sovereignty of Israel in their writings. Likewise, if the majority of Confucian philosophers were Han and therefore espoused Han centrism. (The translated name of China, 中國, literally means “Central Kingdom”.) Also, I believe this multinational diversity is exactly what Vladimir Putin was referring to when he recently stressed the importance of having a multipolar world.
But if the majority of Alt-Right thinkers are White and therefore write from an Anglo-Saxon perspective, then we have a stellar meltdown! Meanwhile, the rest of the world looks on with bewildered consternation. “Why are (Progressive) Whites punishing themselves by denying their heritage?” When foreigners read about “White Guilt” in the MSM, they don’t know all the details of American history, so they think some whites are ashamed to be white. They immediately recognize this as a catastrophic crack in the culture.
It is unfortunate for the reputation of the Alt-Right that some of its proponents are starkly racist. Interracial hate need not be part of the basic equation of country, home, and family, but like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s (both of which were white, mind you), violent conflict does happen. Intertribal conflict is as old as humanity itself, and this is not confined to strictly interracial conflict only. In fact, a survey of history reveals that contrasting religious beliefs are a more common source of conflict than racism.
This is one of the problems of the “Blood is thicker than water” ethical system espoused by the Alt-Right — something to be compared and contrasted against the problems of liberal democracy – one of which I’ll cover in the next post.
I will leave it to the reader to decide which social structure is closer to the Biblical ideal and therefore carries with it God’s blessings.
For those readers who wish to purvey these articles, please ingest them with a grain of salt. Note the sources, beware of the respective biases, false impressions, and coded language, and have the mindset of adopting a wider frame.
