OD Timeline: Trump’s Second Year (Part II)

March 2018

March was a watershed month for the Alt-Right.

In the wake of Richard Spencer’s appearance at Michigan State and the revelation of Matt Heimbach’s affair, the movement tore itself apart in the optics debate which had been simmering since Charlottesville. TWP collapsed. Richard Spencer called off his college tour. Occidental Dissent exited the Alt-Right. At this point, “American Nationalism” and GOP cheerleading became ascendant in the rump of the Alt-Right, which would last until the 2018 midterm elections.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration went through a big shakeup with Rex Tillerson, Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster and David Shulkin leaving and being replaced by Mike Pompeo, Larry Kudlow and John Bolton. President Trump toured his border wall prototypes only to sign the Omnibus spending bill which banned him from using them. The Trump administration sold javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine and banned bump stocks, but also imposed steel and aluminum tariffs. The Senate passed banking deregulation while putting infrastructure on the backburner and scaling back its agenda. A caravan from Central America began to cross Mexico to request asylum at the US border.

April 2018

April was a month of extreme disillusionment.

After quitting the Alt-Right, I began to wonder what to do next. As Trump launched his second missile attack on Syria, I had become disillusioned with BOTH mainstream and fringe politics. My interests shifted to religion, philosophy, history and physical fitness. I needed a break from the movement and pretty much quit writing on this site in April to focus on writing a book which I never completed.

President Trump signed a sex trafficking bill which banned Backpage.com. He launched a second missile strike on Syria and sent the National Guard to the Mexican border to stop the caravan of Central Americans who were traveling to the US to request asylum. They ultimately crossed the border.

About Hunter Wallace 12379 Articles
Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Occidental Dissent


  1. Sorry if this has been already discussed elsewhere. Hunter, will you complete your book in the future? Would you mind letting us know what the book is about?

  2. I agree it was a terrible year.

    The key is to not give in to gloom and doom. There is hope in other places, especially central and eastern europe. Brazil was a huge success – let’s start networking with successful Indo European people from Central & Eastern Europe and South America. America is pretty much F*#&$#@ and I barely, BARELY survived Thanksgiving with my Cuckservative family of cousins, nephews, nieces, brothers, sisters in laws. Everybody was White except one very nice Japanese girlfriend of a nephew – the amount of Cucking was unF#*&$# believable.

    I have to walk on eggshells as everyone worships the Negrofelon League and is all super excited about some book or movie worshiping Winston Churchill and I get my head chopped off saying I don’t see why anyone likes the lesbian happy talk show comedian Ellen Degeneress.

    Everyone wants to be a “SUCCESS” and part of this god awful system.
