Editor’s Note: I wrote this earlier in the MILO Press Conference thread. I’m reposting it here in light of Matt Schlapp’s comments about the Alt-Right on MSNBC. The truth is that Schlapp needed MILO far more than we need conservatism.
I’ve given the “Dangerous Faggot” a hard time. My only real issue with him though is 1.) his association with the Alt-Right and 2.) his perversion which we have discussed at length. As long as he was calling himself a “conservative” or “cultural libertarian” and was doing good work on college campuses, I was content to ignore him and celebrate his accomplishments.
I agree with MILO on the “free speech” issue. I just assumed that he would implode at some point down the road when all the skeletons lurking in his closet started coming out. That’s exactly what has happened and has brought us to this point in the MILO story.
While we wait on the press conference, MILO is still being attacked for being associated with us:
“But the damage to the conservative movement had already been done. In a previous era, there was an élite conservative establishment that could police the movement and cast aside its fringe adherents. William F. Buckley, Jr., the founder of National Review, famously did this in the early sixties, when he attacked the conspiracists and racists of the John Birch Society, the alt-right of the day.
“The invitation strikes me as more important than the disinvitation,” Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, said of the cpac conference. “The invite said, ‘We are welcoming an alt-right (or alt-right-fellow-travelling) provocateur into the big tent.’ The disinvite said, ‘Well, O.K., since you’ve advocated pederasty, we’ll back off.’ cpac hasn’t set out a principled position here, and absent the tapes presumably would have forged ahead.” …”
As I pointed out last night, ten minutes of Googling should have sufficed to dispel that notion. MILO is a Jewish homosexual who boasts about being a “black dick supremacist.” How in the world can a black dick supremacist be an Alt-Right White Nationalist?
MILO is a mainstream conservative. He works within the conservative movement. He was invited to be the keynote speaker at CPAC. He has a platform at Breitbart. All the Dangerous Faggot ever did to earn the “Alt-Right” label was write a single article about us that was somewhat objective. He got some important things wrong about his subject, but that article wasn’t the usual breathless hysteria. That was his unforgivable crime that has earned him so much ill will from the media.
We’re the real Alt-Right. I’ve never been to CPAC. I have no interest in going there either. I’m not a conservative. I don’t want to be identified with “conservatism” which I associate with pearl-clutching weaklings like Cuck David French. Instead, I want to use all the tools of social media to build up our own rival nationalist populist rightwing movement, an international network like the one Niall Ferguson was talking about in the previous article here.
My job is to do alt-punditry and to build the network. I talk to the grassroots on social media every day. Once we have our mass movement, we can have our own version of CPAC and police the boundaries of the Alt-Right and deny these cucks a platform. The average National Review subscriber is 66-years-old. The average FOX News fan is 68-years-old. They are not our audience.
