I saw this in the comments.
After the implosion of the Alt-Right and the Great Hushing on social media, I have lost track of a lot of people who I used to follow in those circles, particularly TRS who have mostly been on Telegram and who paywall a lot of their content. I know that they formed the National Justice Party. I have covered some of their black-on-White crime rallies in Wisconsin and Ohio. I’m not particularly up to speed though on what they have been up to in recent years. I listen to one of their shows every now and then.
In sum, I listened to this Telegram rant this morning and Greg Conte is accusing Tony Hovater and Mike Peinovich of transferring $10K out of the NJP account into a private crypto account. I won’t pretend to know what is going on here because I am not a NJP member. I don’t have any dog in this fight. In the rant though, I was struck by how Conte says he has an unshakeable faith in the ultimate triumph of National Socialism. He says he is for the Führer. The rant culminates with the Horst Wessel Lied (!!!)
Last December, I pointed out how the history of White Nationalism is an endless series of waves and rebrands and how every rebrand eventually contracts before settling into its final position of Third Reich nostalgia. After pushing the Alt-Right to splinter over Neo-Nazi optics, Nick Fuentes and America First also eventually circled back to “Hitler was epic.” We haven’t heard a peep about the Yedolf 2024 campaign since then. Going all the way back to George Lincoln Rockwell who was killed by one of his own followers, these groups usually splinter and collapse when the people involved give up hope on engaging with outsiders and the negative energy grows before they publicly turn on each other.
Anyway, this demoralizing track record along with several bitter experiences is why I decided not to go that route. I have also genuinely never been interested in European fascism. I have been watching the rise and fall of similar groups – each with their own flag and symbol – for over twenty years now.
Note: In related Alt-Right news, the SPLC is accusing Millennial Matt of being an FBI informant and another Charlottesville attendee who renamed himself after a video game and who became a drug trafficker committed suicide. He leaves behind five children.
