(pic of Tila Tequila of the alt-right here.) Interesting article that I saw on FB: Meet the White Nationalist Trying to Ride The Trump Train to Lasting Power. It’s about a White Nationalist named Richard Spencer, and it was written before the election. Spencer was the person who coined the term “alt-right,” and he is widely seen as the founder of the movement. The article describes Spencer’s adulation of Donald Trump before the election. Now that the election is over and Trump has won, Spencer is flying high, talking about ending non-White immigration and turning this country into a European state. But what the people on my FB feed found interesting was that in the recent past, Richard Spencer was into Asian women:
But Spencer’s evolution into a hardcore ethno-nationalist was perhaps not as seamless as he makes it seem. In late 2007, he dated a woman who is Asian American. The two met when she was working for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign.
“I am not the only Asian girl he has dated,” says Spencer’s ex, who spoke to me on the condition that her name not be disclosed. She said she’d initially been turned off by his talk of race-based behavioral differences, but she eventually softened to the idea. They dated for four months, including a trip she took with him to Texas to attend his high school reunion. She says she eventually broke up with him, but not because he was too politically radical. “We all have inconsistencies,” she said. “Especially with love. How can you control your heart?”
Seriously, how can you control your heart? That’s going to be my mantra for the day.
Now we’ve talked about white nationalists, white supremacists, etc. who’ve got the Yellow Fever. For example, we posted about John Derbyshire and what he tells his half-Asian kids. I personally am not getting emotional about anything going on right now. My trust for the mainstream media is currently at an all-time low, and I’m mostly just sitting back to see what happens. But I was somewhat surprised by the Mother Jones article to read that some of the biggest names in the surging White power movement have an Asian connection. For example:
Jared Taylor and William Johnson, the leader of the white nationalist American Freedom Party, both speak fluent Japanese. “There is something about the Asian girls,” Spencer said. “They are cute. They are smart. They have a kind of thing going on. If I am looking at my own life objectively, it really doesn’t surprise me that much.”
I had to google that. According to Wiki, Jared Taylor, who used to teach Japanese at Harvard, was born and raised in Japan, having been the son of Christian missionaries. Wiki says that William Johnson majored in Japanese at Brigham Young and then wound up doing his two year Mormon mission in Japan. From the original article, it seems that Richard Spencer still vacations in Tokyo. So why does this Asian connection exist?
I think you all know the answer. I think if any of these guys had spent time with cultures less ingratiating towards White people (i.e. just about anyone other than us!), they’d probably develop differently. If our culture were different from what it currently is, I think it’s fairly safe to say that these guys would find it much more difficult to find validation. If Extreme Leftists weren’t tripping over their own glaring contradictions or anti-White/anti-Asian racism (though anti-White with glaring exceptions), we might see racial progress instead of racial progressivism.
But it is what it is. Trump has won the election, largely because of the Extreme Leftists. We’ve got Steve Bannon, former editor of Breitbart, who will be Trump’s chief strategist. I’m not as worried as some of the people I know, but I do think it’s something we need to watch and monitor. I think that Trump himself has been drumming up attention by appointing guys like Bannon–it’s what carnival barkers like Trump always do. Too many people are falling for it. But what will happen in the end? If you look at this description of Jared Taylor from the Southern Poverty Law Center, it’s possible that the White Supremacists will just end up fighting among each other and dismantling their own movement, the same way the Extreme Left declared war on logic and allowed Trump to win. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
As for Asians practicing the same silly akogare that breeds White supremacists, I’ve been railing about that for years. Continuing to complain isn’t going to do much. We just have to be the best we can be as individuals, and we need to inspire those around us to do the same. It’s not going to be easy with all the irrational emotion going around these days, but we have to continue to do our best.
