Message from JohnAtlas in Nice Respectable People Group #general
Remember guys, Spencer money if nothing else
In what way did he help?
Surely you jest, sir.
One day he'll have access to hundreds of millions if he doesn't already
we have three Micks in IE
I’m not standing up for him, but I don’t think he would ever say he dislikes all IE members. Maybe the leadership, but that’s between them. There doesn’t need to be so many divides within our movement. We need all of our people on the same side, working towards the same goals. Spencer has dedicated his life to the movement. He’s made some serious mistakes, and is definitely not leadership material at this point. I just don’t feel the need to ceaselessly criticize him
He lead a lot of people into antifa crowds at MSU
@ThisIsChris ask almost anyone who moved over in the past 5 years
I just think Spencer is a guy with a very impressive vision, but without the capacity to be The Leader. He will be honored and remembered as one of the early heroes who spoke out and acted. How many of us would have dared do and say what he has done and said.
@JohnAtlas He officially denounced IE and called us too middle class.
@JRobertson I assume that's most of us. Trying to understand what to thank him for.
He sees us not letting him lead us as shitting on him
Spencer also started an operation to ruin IE and make us go away
I don't look for enemies, but when they try to disband you....
Which spectacularly failed
Somewhat spectacularly, he did peel people off, but mostly people we were better off without. Cursed Eli at least.
Like 10 people
Am I the only one that enjoyed “Alt Right Politics” episodes?
I did as well
I will give Spencer credit for NPI which is a solid idea
@JohnAtlas I used to think the same way you did, but then I started talking to people in IE and the broader movement. Some of the stories I've heard of him would make anybody's skin crawl. There's a reason nobody wants to work with him.
executed less than good
Who could trust a guy that seeks to eliminate teams on their own side?
I enjoyed the Altright.com podcasts with Conte, he actually had meaningful things to say from time to time
I feel bad for all of them
What a cruel fate
for real, though
Yes, but I think someone with good foresight could have seen that being a mistake
we can't afford people with bad foresight
true, but I hate to see the foolish get punished--but nature is cruel, right?
Hundreds of millions. Remember people
@Flint absolutely. being able to make mistakes is a luxury of those already in power
Thats game changing money
@Virgil I believe it. I haven’t talked to nearly as many as I’m sure you have, but the topic did come up in my 2nd interview. He clearly has flaws. However, he’s one of the first Alt Right figures I started to follow, along with Jared Taylor. He’s had inspiring days. And I wish him no ill will. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have the energy, nor the reason to critique those within our own movement. There are so many bigger fish
