ADL: Alt-Right Moving Into The Real World

This is the next step forward for the Alt-Right:

“For a number of years, the alt right was mostly an online movement, with the exception of a few annual conferences held by American Renaissance and the National Policy Institute, two white supremacist organizations. Now its adherents are trying to meet, network, and plan actions in cities and on campuses around the county. Alt right groups have been plastering universities with fliers, meeting at forums and events in different parts of the country, organizing meet and greet gatherings, and, in the case of alt right leader Richard Spencer, planning a college tour across the country.

During 2016, alt right adherents spent a lot of time on the Internet trolling people they did not like, particularly Jewish journalists and public figures opposed to Donald Trump. They created and circulated racist and anti-Semitic memes and promoted Trump in graphics that were widely distributed online. With the media attention showered on the group due to their support of the Trump campaign, alt right adherents see the current time as ripe for real- world activity. …

At the same time that the New York Forum was taking place, there was a similar group of alt right adherents meeting in Atlanta for the first time at the Atlanta Forum. The two groups apparently exchanged greetings over the phone. People associated with “The Rebel Yell,” a podcast on TRS, as well as Michael Cushman, a Southern white supremacist, planned the Atlanta event.

Speakers included Hunter Wallace, the pseudonym for alt right personality Brad Griffin, who runs the Occidental Dissent blog and writes for, and Sam Dickson, an attorney and long-time white supremacist. Wallace claims that he will be hosting similar events in the Southeast. …”

There’s only so much we can do on the internet.

At some point, the Alt-Right will have to move into the real world. We’ve been holding events in the South for several years now. The League of the South and Council of Conservative Citizens have annual conferences. American Renaissance has an annual conference in Tennessee. NPI has an annual conference. These are entry points into the real world side of the movement.

Lately, TRS has been holding pool parties and the Stormer is hosting book clubs across the United States. Identity Evropa recently engaged in some real world activism in Times Square in New York City. We also have people putting up posters and students who are starting White Student Unions on college campuses. Richard Spencer has The Dangerous White Heterosexual college speaking tour.

As the ADL notes here, we recently held the Atlanta Forum and New York Forum on the same weekend. Both events were a great success. In the months ahead, I will be hosting some private events in the South while Greg Johnson hosts private meetups in the Northwest. The first such meetup will probably be in Columbia, South Carolina to organize the Alt-Right in the Palmetto State. The next two meetups will likely be in Tallahassee, Florida and Birmingham, Alabama.

If the private meetups prove to be popular and successful, we can go from region to region in the same way we used to hold the public street demonstrations. It is not enough to educate our people with abstract ideas on the internet. In order for an individual to take the next step in the conversion process beyond the embrace of abstract ideas, real world social networks are needed to validate and affirm the new belief system of converts. Quite often, a convert is exchanging one value system and social network for a more agreeable and intellectually consistent one. Real world social networks provide a critical milieu for exploring taboo ideas with the support and fellowship of likeminded people. They make it easier for converts to overcome the deterrent of social stigma in their area.

I met both my wife and a ton of real world friends through the movement. I have lots of friends who met their wives in the same way. Many of us have children now. We know other couples in our area who share our worldview. I know people who share my values who live all over the South. I certainly don’t miss the atomization and social isolation of the George W. Bush years.

Note: Check out the posters below. We need to create Alt-Right student groups on our college campuses and chapters all over the country.

  1. I’d love to attend one of these if I’m in the area. Any prospective date ranges for the next round of meetups?

  2. The ADL and SPLC have just become SJW screechers (though on the racial side, not the nonsense feminist). They have lost credibility.

    The problem with labeling everyone for trivia is people start noticing. I see no hate here. No attempt to disrupt someone or be intolerant (beyond “lets leave each other alone”). They insist on barking and chasing, but have turned from watch dogs to yapping, annoying, mean Chihuahuas that you just want to try for a field goal out of annoyance.

    They also have a new problem. The SJWs have moved on, so the ADL and SPLC now needs to take sides on transgendered restrooms, and even the boycott and divest movement for Palestinians. And Black Lives Matter (police: “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon”). Orthodox Jewish synagogues that reject gay marriage beware, as should Jewish bakers.

    They now have the choice to become yet another generic SJW leftist shriekfest if not actually calling for violence, or to be attacked by the SJWs because they aren’t doing this years virtue signalling liturgy.

  3. Do not let our enemy define themselves.
    They only do it to amass power and tell lies.

    ” They created and circulated racist and anti-Semitic memes…”.

    Jews are not Semites. There is no such thing as “anti-Semitism.” Therefore, it’s a bogus trap to engender sympathy and gain power over the Founding Populace, by the Deicides.

    They must be stopped.

    • I disagree. If we want to spread the idea that Jews are our racial enemies, we need to emphasize that they are different from us.

      If Jews are semites, that makes them a near-eastern sand people–roughly as white as a Syrian or a Turk, which virtually no one thinks of as “white.”

      If Jews are not semites, then it is exceedingly difficult to argue that they are not white. And if they are white, then it is more difficult to view them as an “Other.”

      It works to our favor to let them be defined as “semites.” Make them live up to the label.

      • No. You’re not a Christian are you? You hate the religion of Christendom don’t you? Because if you did call yourself a Christian, you would understand that we are God’s “Israel” we are the tribes of Judah; we are the chosen people. They are usurpers, liars, they are the seed of Satan.

        they are against everything Christ stood for. And so are you.

        • No, I am not a Christian. And no, I do not “hate” Christendom. I am a “cultural Christian” as Richard Dawkins calls it…I respect and treasure the ways and traditions of my people, while not believing the mysticism portion of it.

          It is that love for my people and my culture that made me commit to WN. And in order to preserve what I love, I will take whatever practical means I can to advance our cause. Even if that violates what you consider to be religious truth.

          I don’t give a damn about who is “Chosen” or who the supposed tribes are or were. Those concepts are only useful insofar as they help to save our race. Your dogma will continue to be your weakness so long as you value it over practicality.

  4. “racist” and “anti-Semitic” memes? So it’s a crime for whites to have our own interests as a group and tell the truth about Jews? Isn’t that almost exactly what the ADL does with their Israeli advocacy page, except they LIE about whites to incite hate against them and we tell the truth about Jews that awakens people to the Jewish hate directed at them.
