The Alt-Right doesn’t really exist anymore.
There were some people who were drawn to the Alt-Right from conservatism and libertarianism. They have returned to conservatism and libertarianism. There were some people who came from the conspiracy theory/truther world. They have returned to their conspiracies and truths. Finally, there were people who joined the Alt-Right who were moderates. They have gone back to being moderates.
Moderates are the “Third Position” stuck in between the Left and Right:
I prefer the term “moderate” to describe our new extremist movement. If you believe in a fair economy, public health, a clean environment, science and medicine, a strong and competent government that delivers public goods like secure borders, you are a moderate— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Moderates are skeptical of liberalism which is biased toward extreme liberty (conservative liberals) and extreme equality (progressive liberals)— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Right-Libertarianism leads to Gilded Age oligarchy. Left-Libertarianism leads to a pozzed and degenerate culture. They are two sides of the same coin. Moderates dislike both of these extremes— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Moderates overlap with conservatives only on identity and social conservatism. We have a positive view of our own in group. We like tidy nations, communities and families. We incline toward social cohesion. The liberal consensus that demonizes White identity makes us “extreme”— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Maybe “Radical Moderates” is the best description of our views. Progressive liberals deny the existence of racial and sexual differences due to their belief in extreme equality. They also demonize White people as oppressors due to their belief in extreme equality— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
We are “radical” in the sense that we reject this fanaticism and this bizarre and unhealthy social order which is built upon a total rejection of nature— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Similarly, the Right-Libertarians who reduce the entire world to selfishness, individualism and materialism and “rights” and economics are fanatics in their own way. They deny the existence of collective structures (family, community, nations and goods (public health)— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
The classic “Radical Moderate” view is that liberalism takes its valued too far: too much liberty, equality, individualism, rights, tolerance. This comes at the EXPENSE of every other good in life like a healthy identity and social cohesion— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
All the clashes we are seeing basically boils down to conservatives and libertarians arguing with moderates. The former believe in conspiracy theories. They don’t believe in public health or “establishment” science and medicine. They do trust libertarian economists— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Here are a few things we hear from conservatives and libertarians: the lockdowns are “tyranny” or “totalitarianism,” Bill Gates is trying to “chip” them, vaccines are worse than the coronavirus, it is better for millions of people to die for we can “get back to our lives”— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
These people have a selfish and individualist mindset. This is why they reject the common good. They don’t want to pay taxes either because that requires them to contribute to society. Sitting on their couch during an epidemic is the worst thing that has ever happened to them— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Wearing a mask has driven them crazy. Moderates see it as a small sacrifice that helps save lives. Moderates do it to protect others, particularly the weak and elderly, in their communities. This is a hysterical act of tyranny to an individualist almost as bad as a flu shot— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Moderates become nationalists because of their concern for others in their community. In contrast, racist liberals are liberals in every respect EXCEPT for their strong aversion to other racial and ethnic groups— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Moderates talk about race or sex in terms of these things being natural differences rooted in human biology. The racist liberal prefers to use the language of disgust and aversion. It always more coarse and inflammatory. Radical incels HATE women— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Moderates see women and elderly people as part of their tribe and community, not as the enemy. We have severe problems with sex like, say, failed marriages, raging incels, whores, etc., BECAUSE liberalism has taken rights, equality, individualism to extremes— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Historically, religion used to regulate sex and family life. Men, women and children were bound to roles. That is no longer the case in the West. Liberalism and capitalism now regulate these aspects of life with disastrous results— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Anyway, this has been a bit of a rant. I wanted to explain the difference in POV that I am seeing— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) May 21, 2020
Moderates are socially conservative and economically liberal. They are authoritarian and practical, not libertarian and inflexible. They favor a competent and robust government. In the 2016 election, moderate independents voted for Trump because he sold them on a “national populist” revolution that was different from Jeb Bush’s mainstream conservatism and Hillary Clinton’s neoliberalism.
The James Allsup vs. Styx debate captures the divide. Conservatives and libertarians are more satisfied with Trump. Moderates are extremely dissatisfied with Trump and don’t plan to vote for him.
The same is true of the ongoing debate over the coronavirus. It is half of conservatives and Republicans arguing with the rest of the country.
49% of moderates say “His policy is not taking the risks seriously enough” compared to 5% who say he is overreacting.
49% of moderates strongly disapprove of reopening protests compared to 7% who strongly approve of the protests.
69% of moderates do not believe stay-at-home orders are violating constitutional rights as opposed to 19% who say they do.
37% of moderates believe the pandemic is going to get worse, 23% believe we are in the worst of it and 18% think the worst is over.
Even before the coronavirus, 20% of Americans believed that vaccines cause autism. 28% believed in the New World Order. 15% believed the medical industry invents diseases. 13% believed that Obama was the Antichrist. 4% believed that Reptilians control the planet. This is the libertarian leaning Alex Jones audience that is a big swath of the MAGA base who believe the virus is hoax. It is not the same swath of Americans who are moderate independents.
