Darkly Humorous YT Clip from 2013 about “Wolfenstein Fan Clubs”

As almost every single one of you might have heard by now, a ‘Unite the Right Rally‘ on Aug 11th and 12th 2017 in Charlottesville ended up being quite the shitshow. One woman died and 20 more people were injured when an ‘alt-right’ asshole ran them over with his car. Shortly after that, two cops died in a helicopter crash near the site of the rally and counter-protests. Anyway.. with all the usual statements, noises and opinions about the incidents which occurred over that weekend- it is worth remembering something.

Most Americans have a poor grasp of history, especially if events in question occurred in other countries. Perhaps that is why dumbfucks who have never left the midwest feel affinities for ideologies as repulsive as Nazism and Fascism. And maybe that is why pudgy underemployed white guys in golf shirts and khakis carrying citronella scented Tiki torches fancy themselves as saviors of the “white race”. While Trump’s victory in Nov 2016 did give an extra boost to such ideologies, it is also true that historical ignorance, racism in all its forms and interest in fascism are as American as apple pie.

It does not help that allegedly “respectable” main stream media outfits such as the NYT, Atlantic, WP have given tons of free publicity to douchebags like Richard Spencer. The ‘alt-right’ as it exists today is largely an attempt to repackage a number of disreputable older ideologies from fascism to Nazism along with a big helping of american-style racism. To be clear, I am against censoring free speech- even if it is extremely offensive. Having said that, it is also necessary to vigorously critique (and mock) those who express their support for such ideologies.

What do you think? Comments?

    Kessler (the car guy) was a Leftist who might have switched sides, maybe. Kind of. Not sure. I suspect given the need for narrative he could have come in with an AntiFa hat and wearing a Che shirt and they’d have called him .Alt Right anyway.

    As the stuff happened in the middle of a riot the police weren’t handling because of orders from above there might also be legal justification as well, fear of his life

    Also the .Alt Right is just paleoconservative using rules for radicals, not fascists or Nazis .

    That ideology is hardly discredited since Palecons have no issue with economic regulation and the .Alt Right is neutral these days on a welfare state as well and the US worked reasonably well under the systems they proposed

    That said there were Neo Nazis and Fascists there was well along with Reds on the other side (AntiFa is a Communist group more or less)

    Its not a surprise that it ended up violent National Socialists and International Socialists have been doing this crap for nearly a century and this is just the dregs of both defunct discredited movements having another bout

    The altright is similar to the muslim brotherhood in egypt, and the liberal elites in US are using the same method against Trump as used by Egyptian elites to take down the popularly elected president Mohamed Morsi

    “On the morning of 1 July, anti-Morsi protesters ransacked the national headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo. Protesters threw objects at windows and looted the building, making off with office equipment and documents. The health ministry confirmed the deaths of eight people who had been killed in clashes around the headquarters in Mokattam.”

    “Four Ministers also resigned on the same day: Tourism Minister Hisham Zazou (who previously offered to resign a few months ago after Morsi appointed an Islamist linked to the group that attacked tourists as governor of Luxor), Communication and IT Minister Atef Helmi, State Minister for Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Hatem Bagato and State Minister for Environmental Affairs Khaled Abdel Aal,[384] leaving the government with members of the Freedom and Justice Party.

    On 2 July Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr resigned as well in support of the anti-government protesters.”
