I think the main take away from all of this is not that Nick got kicked off Twitter, but how long he was able to stay on, and even verified. Regardless of what your thoughts are on the January 6th protest, it’s obvious that the much of the mainstream media and many politicians consider this an insurrection against the US government.
Yet some of the main perpetrators of the event such as Donald Trump, Don Jr, Rudy Giuliani, Alex Jones and Nick have gotten off extremely light compared to many of their followers who could be facing years in prison.
Overall, I think the Fuentes ban is a great thing for us because the more conservatives are forced to play on our playing ground, the more people we win over. How many of Nick’s more lukewarm followers will leave twitter because of this banning and start following people such as Keith Woods, Mark Collett and Eric Striker on telegram?
I understand many in our movement think it is a good idea to oppose these bannings simply out of principle. However, whatever principled support I would have for a conservative who just got banned goes completely out the window when they lead people into potential legal trouble as we saw on January 6th. Conservatives pose a far greater threat to the average citizen than so-called “Blackpilled Wignats.” You can break people from finkelthink (sometimes). You can’t break them out of prison.
Our mentality as nationalists needs to be if we aren’t allowed on platforms such as Twitter or Facebook, then neither should any conservative grifter, especially when they don’t take up a principled stance for us when we get kicked off. And why would they? All they serve to do is co-opt our rhetoric, ignore us, or outright cancel us. The reason why Charlie Kirk, Nick Fuentes and Ben Shapiro have audiences as big as they do is precisely because nationalists get censored.
