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
And I have an inherent distrust of people who so flippantly join and leave organizations
with respect to the money?
I don't think he has nearly that much, as I understood it was a few million. enough to make him independently wealthy but not enough to fund a movement
He's heir to a massive fortune
@JohnAtlas Do remember that this is an in-house conversation and not public
If he doesn't have it now he will one day
We don't go after the dude in public--like he does to us
Our movement is at best only about 10 years old. Before that we had, and still have the great philosophers, but then it started to come into the open, as it needed to. The first revolutionaries who act are the generally among the fringe. That's why Trump is so exciting. He is a MAN who knows the score. He is his own man who has plowed a very difficult row. He is very, very tough and smart. Until Trump we have had some very effective leaders, but they have all been ivory tower types who have nevertheless had the courage to put Whites before career. Peter Brimelow was a monster journalist in the early-90s who queered his pitch when he began pointing out that third-world immigration was killing us. He was immediately declared a leper by the mainstream Leftists and neoCons. That's when he started
@JohnAtlas Understandable, I used to follow him, in fact one of his podcasts got me to join IE in the first place. But the issue is that he is a bit of a liability and he continuously goes after us, unprovoked.
@OMGDwayne Depending on how you define movement its almost 100 years old, here in the USA
@JRobertson I am skeptical. He wouldn't be doing what he does now if he had that kind of money. At those levels you're talking thinktanks and platforms. Not his blog and occasional periscope
@Flint Fair point. Since we’re on the subject though, I thought I’d share my views. Obviously, you can criticize him all you want.
I get you're saying he doesn't have the money yet though @JRobertson
I can respect that
@ThisIsChris Look it up dude, either he has it now or he will have it.
Land value alone, I mean Jesus
When the time comes he could fund... anything
Was that piece you're talking about not a parody? Or am I thinking of something else?
