In spite of all the ink that has been spilled about American nationalism, Patriot Front is only group in the United States that is incorporating it into their activism.
They were in Charlottesville as part of Vanguard America. I met them in Florida at Richard Spencer’s speech in Gainesville. I don’t have the slightest problem with them. In fact, I have said in the past that their approach to the issue which draws a distinction between the American nation and the ideology of the American state is in line with our thinking on the issue.
Patriot Front uses the American aesthetic without ingesting the poison of civic nationalist ideology. They’re also determined to stay active in the real world and work well with others. Good for them. I expect we will be seeing a lot more of them on the frontlines in 2018.
Note: The Texas flag was a nice touch. I hope they use that one more often.
