I’m very happy to announce that, in February of 2017, Radix will release the second, revised and expanded edition of Tomislav Sunic’s classic volume, Homo Americanus: A Child of the Postmodern Age. This edition is substantialy re-written and includes additional essays by Kevin MacDonald and Alain de Benoist.
Homo Americans: A Child of the Postmodern Age
With Essays by Kevin MacDonald and Alain de Benoist
Radix / 2017
Communism was a make-belief system, which, ironically, citizens never really believed in, and which everybody, including Communist party dignitaries, made fun of in private. Eventually, this mendacity spelled the death of the ideology and even the legitimacy of Communist states. In America, however, politicians and scholars, even the masses, passionately believe every word of democratic pablum.
The end of the Cold War was accompanied by the global triumph of the “American Way of Life,” not to mention the American-led financial system and global order. With Communism and Fascism in the dustbin, no one could question the legitimacy of such moral buzzards as “democracy,” “freedom,” “rights,” and “diversity.”
First published in 2006, and now substantially expanded and revised, Tomislav Sunic’s Homo Americanus: A Child of the Postmodern Age examines the history and “political theology” of America and Americanism—as well as their mirror reflections, Communism and “Anti-Americanism.” Today, millions of Americans pride themselves as living in a kind of universal nation, a place for all peoples; but Americanism has a peculiar history. The “Shining City on the Hill”—a favorite metaphor of Ronald Reagan, neoconservatives, and even Barack Obama—was first voiced by Puritan John Winthrop, who, before setting foot on land, declared the New World to be a New Jerusalem. Sunic interrogates this religious quality to American identity, and speculates as to the future of the American ideology in the multicultural 21st century.
Included in this volume are an introductory essay by Kevin MacDonald, on the Jewish experience in America, and a new essay by Alain de Benoist, detailing the perspective on America from the European New Right.

The Daily Beast reports on the “Deploraball”/Baked Alaska/Cernovich controversy:
These kinds of squabbles are typical of squishy revolutionaries, said Spencer, who has earned global condemnation for his hardline racist views.
“The ‘Alt-Light’ faces a major problem,” Spencer wrote in an email to The Daily Beast. “People like Mike Cernovich and Milo don’t have an ideology; they don’t even really have policies that you can point to. They are Trump fans, who are vaguely conservative and a bit neocon-ish. They don’t like feminists and SJWs (social justice warriors); in other words, they pick the low-hanging fruit.
“The Alt-Light has also hitched its wagon to ‘free speech,’” he continued. “The catch is, there’s clearly some free speech they don’t like, particularly regarding race and Jewish activism and influence. In order for the Alt-Light to maintain its current position—playing footsie with the real Alt-Right and playing footsie with establishment conservatives—they are going to have to engage in thought-policing and disavows.”
Spencer said he supports Treadstone attending the Deplora-Ball but he himself will not be going.
How long can alt-light figures like @Cernovich maintain their "edgy but not too edgy" position without having to police fans for badthink?

Once you start down the path they have started down you end up right back at liberal censorship of ideas just because.

Yesterday, Whitefish City Councilman Frank Sweeney offered us this pearl of wisdom:
Why anybody would think it’s OK to treat another human being like that is beyond me,” [Councilman Frank] Sweeney says of such images. “We fought a world war over this kind of anti-Semitism.”
Sweeney is concerned that a designated victim group in town might be subjected to mean tweeting, or even (gasp) images of a smirking frog, after The Daily Stormer’s troll armies descended on Whitefish. To think that more than 60 million people died, only to see intolerant memeing continue!
In all seriousness, let’s remember that over this past month, I was subjected to doxing and threats of physical violence by an erstwhile Politico Editor, and more death threats sent via email, text, and social media than I can count. My mother—who’s apolitical and unconnected with my ideology—was subjected to what can only be described as an attempted shakedown, a form of vicarious punishment at the hands of a nasty local realtor named Tanya Gersh.
Don’t worry, I’ll survive, and so will my mom, but it’s revealing just how little Frank Sweeney cares about us, for he hasn’t uttered a word in protest. There is a hierarchy of victims, and my mom and I don’t even qualify.
Sweeney claims that the current scandal “seems to be centered around a business, but I don’t think it is. It’s whether Richard Spencer and the alt-right have a presence in town.”
Not really, Frank.
I’ve never made a secret about the fact that I spend many months in Whitefish, a beautiful ski town in the Flathead Valley. But I’ve also never done anything public here, other than getting interviewed by some journalists over the summer. I’ve certainly never involved myself in local politics. The only reason I’m actively discussing Whitefish now is because my mother was attacked, and that is also the sole reason why The Daily Stormer is messaging locals.
As City Councilor, Frank’s job is to regulate sidewalks and trash collection and the like. He has absolutely no authority to express opinions regarding where I choose to live. And the notion that I would move to please someone as insignificant as himself is laughable. (Sorry, I’m not going anywhere, Frank.)
I’ve been aware of this puritanical individual for some time. Back in 2014, after I had been jailed in Budapest for hosting a conference, some local Rabbis involved with the Orwellian-named group “Love Lives Here” urged the Whitefish City Council to enact a “No Hate” ordinance, which would have made it illegal for anyone to “do business” with me or any organization I’m involved with. I’m not sure what this would have meant . . . or how such a law could have been enforced . . . but it would have been a comically obvious violation of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
The Flathead Beacon, from November 18, 2014:
[D]ozens of Whitefish residents banded together and packed the council chambers Monday night, urging council members to enact an ordinance barring hate-group activities in the community. Organized by civil rights activist and local Rabbi Allen Secher, and his wife, Ina Albert, the residents offered emotional testimony in an effort to “pass a no-hate ordinance so that hate organizations cannot do business in our town,” Albert said.
Kyle Bristow of The Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas (donate to them) issued a Freedom of Information Act request and was able to obtain emails about the event. From these, we learned that City Councilman Frank Sweeney was in contact with the Southern Poverty Law Center and was actively trying to craft such legislation. In other words, after the Rabbis Secher and Albert made a request, Frank sprung into action.

I am requesting assistance in drafting a ‘no hate’ ordinance in response to Richard Spencer and his National Policy Institute. I am a sitting City Councilor in Whitefish, MT where Mr. Spencer is a part time resident and has issued several of his diatribes from our fair city.
I almost wish little Frank had gone through with it, as it would have launched an important legal fight—which he would have lost in humiliating fashion. But instead, the Whitefish City Attorney, Mary VanBuskirk, wisely advised against any kind of ordinance. (I spoke with Ms. VanBuskirk, and she impressed me as an intelligent and down-to-earth woman, a stark contrast to Frank.) In the end, the town council issued a non-binding “resolution” in favor of diversity, which I actually publicly endorsed.
Sweeney might want to present himself as the brave defender of freedom—at a recent City Council Meeting, he read aloud the words of Evan McMullin—but in reality, he is nothing less than an enemy of civilization. In his way, he’s a typical Boomer Cuck, who signals his righteousness to minority “victims” by attacking White people they deem “racist.”
I’m happy to say that Frank’s true nature is no longer a secret.

Good evening, everyone. Long live Texas! Thank you for having me. I appreciate it.
Editor’s Note: This is a transcript of Richard’s speech as compiled by Brett Stevens here at his “Amerika” website, which includes this transcript and more commentary on it.
Good evening, everyone. Long live Texas! Thank you for having me. I appreciate it.
I’m just curious; I want to do a bit of a demographic study. If you’re a member of the media, please raise your hand. Okay, okay, put your hand own, please. That’s a very offensive gesture. Shut it down. We knew you were the lying media, but for God’s sake, that’s out of hand.
I’d like to first off thank Preston for bringing me here. He is truly a brave man and he is bringing a level of discourse to the university that otherwise probably wouldn’t be there. The fact is that we know universities have become stifling, in terms of what you can talk about, and Preston’s fighting against that and I greatly appreciate it. So please give him a round of applause.
I’d also like to thank the Texas A&M University Police. They have been absolutely professional with me; they also care about free speech and they have really gone the extra mile in terms of allowing this event to occur. So please give them a round of applause. Thank you.
So, just out of curiosity, please raise your hands if you are a Texas A&M student. Awesome. I am very happy to be here and I hope you all ask questions. I actually did grow up in Texas, so I am proud to say, the Alamo did nothing wrong.
Well. What is the Alt Right? Who are you? Pepe. Yeah, absolutely. I’m sure some of you have first heard about the Alt Right after the “hail heard round the world” that occurred at the NPI conference. That was a lot of fun.
I would say that that moment, which went viral, is an expression of a lot of different things. It is certainly the expression of the desire of a mainstream media to slander and just silence us with one thirty second footage. “Aww, these people are terrible.” But I think it also says something about the life of the Alt Right. We don’t allow other people to tell us what we can joke about. We don’t play by their rules. We have fun, we can be outlandish, and that is never going to stop.
So, the Alt Right can’t be defined by something from the past. We can’t be trapped in the past. But we also need to go forward guilt-free. We need to be high energy, we need to have fun, we need to be a little outlandish, we need to trigger the world. So all I would say is: keep it up. I love you all.
So what is the Alt Right? When I first started using that term, it was about mid-2008, and at that point, I think the Alt Right was fairly, you could say, negative in its meaning. We didn’t quite know exactly what it was. I knew that something was profoundly wrong with mainstream conservatism. That was evident enough with the George W. Bush administration, with the neoconservatives disastrous wars in Iraq and so on, and with the rest of the mainstream Right offering no answers, the religious Right, all that kind of stuff. I knew that we had to have a new starting point. I also knew that we needed to — this wasn’t a matter just of tweaking the Right, as it is — this was really the matter of a new beginning. Of a new starting point for conservatism in America.
You can actually look at the starting point of the conservative movement, and they talk about global capitalism, and free markets, and the Constitution, and vague Christian values of some sort. But they never ask that question of “Who are we?” They never ask that question of identity. They probably assumed it. They probably assumed a white America, a European America, but they never really asked about it and they were never really conscious of it.
And so the conservative movement became, in its way, a mirror reflection, a photographic negative, of the Soviet Union. It became an ideological nation, it became a nation based on abstract values, like “muh freedom,” “muh democracy,” “muh bombin’ muh commies and Muslims.” It was never a place; it was never a people; it was a kind of ideology. That’s what conservatism was. And so I don’t think George W. Bush was some kind of aberration, some kind of wrong turn to the conservative movement; I think sadly he was an expression of that general trajectory. Not towards identity, not towards nationalism, not towards a sense of “us” or who we are, but towards this abstract universalism that ends up in ridiculous two trillion dollar wars in the middle east, that no one understands and no one can even remember what started them.
So, in a way, George W. Bush was the founder of the Alt Right. He was at least the founder of the term, because I knew that we had to get away from that. We had to get away from him. So I started using the term “Alt Right” in about mid-2008, and at that point, as I said, I don’t think it had an essence quite then. It was just a sense of not-that; let’s get away from W, let’s get away from all that, let’s start anew. From there, the Alt Right evolved, it took on new meanings, and in a way it was outside of my control, absolutely — the Alt Right has never been the Richard Spencer agenda or anything like that — the Alt Right has been organic, that’s why it has succeeded, precisely because other people have picked it up and they have added meanings to it, and so on.
But it kind of evolved with me, in a way. After I dropped out of graduate school, I worked in what you could call the anti-war conservative movement. I wanted to oppose George W. Bush’s agenda but I wanted to do it from a Right-wing perspective. That is, I evolved too. And by around 2010, I would say, I had an idea of where that new starting place was going to be. And that new starting point was going to be identity. And that was going to be the question that we asked first.
So what is identity? In a way, it’s the question “who are you?” We all have many different identities. You could say that you’re a student at Texas A&M. You’re into weight-lifting. You went to a Star Trek convention. You like to wear sweatpants. These are elective identities. They say something about us, but they’re elective.
But then you can delve a little bit deeper, and you could say, “I’m a citizen of the United States. I grew up somewhere. We all grew up somewhere. We’re all part of something. We all come from someplace.
You can go even deeper, and say, “These are my parents. This is my family.” The Left in the eighteenth century had this line “an accident of birth.” An accident of birth. No birth is an accident. There’s no historical or cosmic accident in birth. You come from somewhere. You have parents. They have parents, they have a history. So you’re part of a family. And you grew up somewhere. And you can go deeper, and you can say that you are part of an ethnicity and you are ultimately part of a race. You might not like this. You might really resonate to the idea that we’re all individuals, we’re all citizens. “We’re just Americans. I don’t see color. But color sees you. That’s a good line — I think Trevor Noah said that to a young conservative. She says, “Oh, I don’t see color. I’m a good young conservative.” He says, “What the hell do you do at a stoplight?” It’s a good question actually. We all see color. And race isn’t just color. Color is, in a way, a minor aspect of race. But you’re part of something. Whether you like it or not, you’re part of a bigger extended family. You’re part of this world; you’re part of this history. And that race has a story to tell.
As a European, I can tell a story about people, people I never will know. Our lives stretch back to prehistory. We first started to become ourselves in the Greek and Roman world. So there’s a story that involves people you’ve never met. As a European, I can tell this story about the Greeks and the Romans, about the foundation of our civilization, about empire, about the coming of Christianity.
Sure, Europe’s a place. It’s a place on the map, the people, the blood and its spirit. That’s much more important than some map. There are Europeans all over the world. If we went into space, we’d still be European.
So we can tell a story. We went through tumults, we went through reformations, we went through revolutions, and we are who we are, and I think we’ve learned something about ourselves. That’s the story I can tell as a European. I think if I were an African-American I could tell a very different story. If I were to say what that story would be, it would be about being rooted in an African continent, and enslaved and kidnapped, and going through trials that perhaps I cannot imagine, but then becoming a people. You’re still a people. That’s the story I would tell. But it’s a different story.
So that’s what it means to be part of a race. A race is genetically coherent, a race is something you can study, a race is about genes and DNA, but it’s not just about genes and DNA. The most important thing about it is the people and the spirit. That’s what a race is about.
A lot of white people do not want to have a race. They say, “Oh, I’m just an individual. I’m just an American.” You have a race whether you like it or not. You’re part of a race whether you like it or not. When a Syrian refugee — so called — whether they’re from Syria or Africa or somewhere else in the middle east, when they enter Europe, they don’t look at anyone as “Oh, look, lookee there, this man, he’s Bavarian. Oh, he’s a Bavarian Catholic. Oh look, this guy must be from Ireland. Hmm, interesting. He’s Italian.” No, they don’t see that at all. They see us as white; they see us as white men. They see us as a race, and our enemy can see who we are whether we want to define ourselves as such or not. We are white.
So that is the foundation of identity. You can go up, you can look at elective identities — I’m into weightlifting, I’m into Star Trek — and you can keep going down, and you go down, and down, and down, and you get to the root of identity. You get to that base, where you can’t go any further. And that is race.
In America, we have a very peculiar conception of race. This has been perhaps the most racialized continent. It was a place that was an open country. It was an open country for Europeans who confronted people who were radically different than they were. And that confrontation, I’ll be honest, was terrible, bloody and violent. It was terrible, bloody and violent, but we conquered this continent. Whether it’s nice to say that or not, we won. And we got to define what America means, we got to define what this continent means. America, at the end of the day, belongs to white men.
While I was coming here on the airplane, I re-watched perhaps my favorite movie, which is John Ford’s The Searchers. There’s a moment in that film that I love. It actually comes from a very minor character. It’s one of the Sorgesens, who are a Swedish family. This movie The Searchers takes place in Texas. It’s a brutal movie. It’s about Indians capturing this young white child, and Ethan — played by John Wayne — and his companions chasing after her for years, years, almost endlessly. There’s a moment when this woman Sorgesen, her husband Lars says, “Texas — This terrible country — killed my boy.” Their boy died on a revenge mission against these Indians and the Indians killed him. And Mrs. Sorgesen said, “No, the country didn’t kill your boy. We’re Texicans. And that means we’re a human man way out on a limb. We’re going to be out on that limb for years, for decades, maybe a hundred years. But we won’t be out on that limb forever. At some point, Texas is going to be a wonderful place to live. It’s going to be a great place to live. But perhaps our bones have to be in the ground before that will happen.”
Texas is a wonderful place to live. And there are a lot of the white man’s bones in the ground to make that happen. White people did it. And I’m not going to ever claim that there wasn’t a lot of brutality that went along with it. But we did it. Our bones are in the ground, we own it, and at the end of the day, America cannot exist without us. We defined it. This country does belong to white people, culturally, politically, socially, everything. We defined what America is. But things change. The architect is what matters. It’s the genius behind something, it’s not just whoever happened to do the labor. Other people could have done it. But no one could have imagined it, no one could have designed it, because no one else did. History is proof.
But things change. What is America now? Is it great? “Make America Great Again” was the slogan that captured the imagination really of the world. Embedded in that slogan “Make America Great Again” is its opposite, and that is an acknowledgement that America is not great. I think we know that. I think we know that in our bones and our guts, that things are getting worse. Previous generations couldn’t imagine that their children would have a worse world than they enjoyed, even a worse world than their parents enjoyed. Now 75% of white people think the country is on the wrong track; who could disagree with them, exactly? Does anyone think it’s getting better?
“Make America Great Again.” The opposite is embedded in that statement. That’s what makes it in a way so powerful. We assume that America is not great. And it isn’t. And why isn’t it great? America is not great because in my lifetime, America has lost an essence. It’s lost a people, it’s lost a meaning. You listen to presidential inaugurations, these are these times when presidents will go up and tell us “what this is really about” and get everyone fired up, they don’t talk about America as an historic nation and a people with a story, as the product of a race, of a worldview, they basically talk about America as a platform for all of humanity. They talk about America as an economic system, effectively.
Many have talked about the Roman Empire’s decline. It went from being a people to being a population, then to being a mob. I think that says a lot about the fall of Rome. America went from being a frontier, to being a people, then to being an economic platform for consumers from around the world. And let there be no doubt: Americanization, in this worst possible sense of the word, this is what Hillary Clinton was talking about when she said she wanted a “hemispheric open market.” This is what George Soros and Mark Zuckerberg want. They want an undifferentiated global population, raceless, genderless, identityless, meaningless population, consuming sugar, consuming drugs, while watching porn on VR goggles while they max out their credit cards. Don’t deny that that is the kind of passive nihilism that so many in the elite class actually want. They want a world without roots, they want a world without meaning, they want a flat grey-on-grey world, one economic market for them to manipulate. That’s what’s happening in the world.
It isn’t just a great erasure of white people. It isn’t just an invasion of Europe, an invasion of the United States by the third world, it is ultimately the destruction of all peoples and all cultures around the globe.
I’m not paranoid, they’re just out to get me.
That’s what America has become. We might not all be able to put it into those words, but we know that that is what America is becoming. It’s becoming an homogeneous consuming mass, and no one wants it. Whether you’re black or white or Asian or Hispanic or whatever, no one wants that. And that’s what America has become.
I agree with liberals who might say, “Oh Donald Trump, he’s vulgar, he’s ridiculous, listen to what he’s saying, this is crazy.” Look, I agree. But just the fact that Donald Trump said that word “great” — “Make America Great Again” — meant that he had higher hopes than the Clintons, and the Zuckbergs, and the Bill Gates, and the George Soroses combined. That he had a sense of height, of upward movement, of greatness, of that thing that makes the white race truly unique and truly wonderful, that striving towards infinity, that however vulgar he might be that he had a sense of it.
And that’s what inspired the Alt Right. That’s what made Donald Trump an Alt Right hero. So this is where we are. We’re in a battle between that other America, that America we don’t want to talk about, that America that has our bones in the earth, that America that white Americans died for, that white Americans defined, and we have this other America, that’s just coming into view. This America that is a nihilistic economic platform for the world, that’s taking over the world and destroying everything in its path. That’s where we are. We’re at a tipping point.
What we need right now are people who are willing to speak truth to power. I find that there’s this amazing thing about the Left. And I have a certain respect for the Left, believe it or not. I understand the Left in a way. What I find so amazing about the people who are protesting me out there, who are attempting to create the largest safe space in the world of 100,000 people at Kyle Field, is that they think they’re the underdog. Let me let you in on a secret: Richard Spencer is not the Establishment. Richard Spencer is not running the government. Richard Spencer is effectively a heretic in the modern age. Think about those places of power. The US military, public education (academia), major corporations whether they’re financial on the east coast, Silicon Valley, what have you. What do they all agree on? “Diversity is good.” “We’re all the same.” “We’re one world.” “C’mon man, we all bleed red.” You might think that that kind of limp liberalism is some kind of underdog perspective, that you’re speaking truth to power by saying that nonsense. You are not speaking truth to power. The military-industrial complex agrees with you, so does every major corporation, so does the US government. You are not speaking truth to power, you are power speaking.
These institutions do not want you to have a sense of yourselves. They do not want you to have identity and rootedness. They do not want you to have duties to your people. They do not want you to think of yourself as part of an extended family that is bigger than any single individual, because the moment you have those duties, the moment you have that identity, is the moment that you are no longer the perfect, passive consumer-citizen that they want to create.
Have an identity. I don’t need to tell black people in this room to have an identity because you all have got it. You know who you are. Have an identity. I don’t need to tell that African-Americans, I probably don’t need to tell that to Native Americans or Indians or Asians or anything. But I will tell that to white people: have a goddamn identity, have a sense of yourself. Be a part of this family. You are not an individual, you are not “just an Amurrican,” you are not just a citizen, you are part of this family; be a part of it. Find that within yourself. Find that shadow of self. Not the day-to-day self, find that shadow of self, that European, that hero within you. Be that person.
Having an identity is the greatest challenge to the power structure that there is. Speaking truth to it means speaking the truth about race, about people, about nations, about who we are. You are not a rebel when you mouth this tired, boring, annoying, Left-wing pablum of the so-called “anti-fascists.” Or of these sinecured academics, people with six or seven figure salaries who think they’re Marxist revolutionaries. You are not speaking truth to power when you mouth their tired bullshit.
Have an identity. Be something bigger than yourself. Become who you are, become a member of the people and speak truth to power my brothers and sisters. Thank you very much.

I guess they want White genocide after all.
Take note of the hat.
Growing up, I remember hearing about the magical date of “2050,” when Whites will be a minority. Today, some are imagining “The Year 3,000,” when no coherent race or culture will exist on the planet.
Back in the days of AlternativeRight.com, I wrote about a similar state-sponsored video from Sweden, “Mix It Up!”
[I]t’s worth pointing out that race-mixing as a solution to racial strife has never worked — indeed, it usually exacerbates matters. In the Haitian Revolution, after the French colonizers were overthrown, it was only a short time before calls were heard to “kill the Mulattoes!”

We triggered them hard: Texas A&M President Michael K. Young announced Tuesday the university will host a campus-wide “Aggies United” event Dec. 6 in response to a planned appearance by…
Texas A&M President Michael K. Young announced Tuesday the university will host a campus-wide “Aggies United” event Dec. 6 in response to a planned appearance by a controversial leader from the white nationalist movement.
Young said there has been “a significant outpouring of concern by members of the Aggie community and beyond” regarding the non-university affiliated event featuring Richard Spencer.
”Students, faculty, staff, former students and members of the community expressed their outrage over the speaker’s previously-expressed views and have roundly condemned everything for which he seems to stand,” Young said in a statement.
The “Aggies United” event is scheduled to take place at Kyle Field from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will be open to students, faculty and staff as well as the public.
So, I appear on campus for a causal talk and Q&A with students, and in response, the President of the University feels the need to fill a football stadium to create the largest known “safe space.” Nothing demonstrates the power of the ideal of European identity than a reaction like this. Young might think that such a rally harms the Alt Right; to the contrary, it makes us stronger than he could possibly imagine!
Below is the statement from Preston Wiginton, the brave man who organized the event.
First I’d like to thank Texas A&M and Dr. Young for allowing the Richard Spencer event to occur. What a unique opportunity for the Aggie community to hear and engage one of the most controversial figures of the day.
I hope that Aggie community can show the true qualities of being an Aggie and a Texan. The qualities of hospitality and good manners.
However I am very disappointed that Dr. Young will not be attending the event and also extremely disappointed that Dr. Young is holding an event counter to mine.
I have never met Dr. Young, nor has he ever met Richard Spencer. How does he know what I or Richard Spencer stand for other than some slanted newspaper and Internet articles.
I was truly hoping Dr. Young would attend. He just might learn something and by not attending he shows he is closed minded and does not set a good example for the students of Texas A&M.
Obviously Dr. Young didn’t get the message concerning the Trump election. White America made a statement!
The alt-right, which Hillary Clinton called deplorables, is nothing more than millions of white Americans who have been forced to cower and kiss the ring of political correctness for years finally declaring that enough is enough and that they are not going to take this anymore. It means we are done putting up with BLM, we are done having our communities ravaged by uncontrolled (and often illegal) immigration, we are sick of snowflakes telling us to check our privilege, we are sick of being passed over for jobs and in education in the name of “diversity”, we reject multiculturalism, and we are really sick of seeing the next generation of college kids being indoctrinated in the ways of anti-white Stalinism with our tax money or through loans guaranteed by our tax money. I would say that, most of all, this is about taking back the language. It is about saying that just because some kook liberals calls something “racist” – that doesn’t make it true!
The rise of the Alt Right is a reaction to the displacement of white Americans via mass immigration. Mass immigration of non whites into America.
I am often bedazzled how the world goes bonkers about the polar bear may potentially go extinct, but when it comes to the displacement of white people and the dwindling numbers of white people, nobody cares. Obviously Dr. Young doesn’t.
It also appears that Dr. Young does not care about education or current events, current events, mass immigration and race relations, that will drastically effect every American, regardless of their skin color.
Furthermore Dr. Young does not care about the concerns of white Americans. The Richard Spencer event was to be a dialogue of some of the most pressing events of the day. In not attending the Richard Spencer event and even encouraging the A&M community to not attend by hosting an event counter, Dr. Young makes a statement that spits in the face of white America!
