Message from Bjorn - MD in Nice Respectable People Group #general
Patrick is a good leader.
Greg Conte was the best part of altright.com and he left after becoming alienated
Hah, I see what he's probably bemoaning when he says middle class and it's a good thing. Intelligent pragmatism
@Nemets Multiple outlets have reported arrests can be made for refusing to allow children to inter-marry, refusing to watch state TV.
But yeah, when that guy gets there, let us know.
@Wood-Ape - OK/MN It sucks, because he poisoned a lot of wells. I mean, I don't think the "movement" is going to suffer in the absence of Spencer, Camillo, or Caerolus Rex, but Mark Brahmin's stuff was pretty awesome, and Maclaren didn't have to go down the way he did.
Watching a horror movie called "The Guest".
@Bjorn - MD Agreed. It is weird the mainstream media fixated on him so much that now they think all pro-white politics is dead because he's licking his wounds.
but I came in by bus from Almaty so I saw some of the countryside. Mostly at night though. The contrast between Kazakhstan and China or China and the rest of the world boggles the mind. China is the real deal
@Wood-Ape - OK/MN I think they saw the size of his ego very early on, and resolved to use him against us as an optical liability.
it felt like walking off the set of Indiana Jones onto the set of Blade Runner
@Bjorn - MD Maybe someday he can have a role to play. But Not in IE and IE doesn't need him.
they were doing some knife attacks before, after and during my time there but it wasn't very disruptive. The streets were peaceful and busy with Uighurs and Han but in the city center - which is huge, it's a city of 2 million, which is bigger than most cities in the US - there were SWAT vehicles and foot patrols
It's not like he got arrested for step-mom porking or wife/bestfriend choking.
@Wood-Ape - OK/MN Unfortunately for him, I think the only role left for him at this point is as someone for us to point at, and say "We're not him."
I remember the post-box TDS episode. I didn't really understand what was going on. I had to re-listen to it after getting updated. LOL
Has IE received any former TWP members following that glorious display of the meaning of white trash
@Nemets Almaty was cool because they have soldiers in full battle rattle standing on quiet streets back to back to back: three dudes facing outward in a triangle. I've never seen anything like it.
In Tajikistan they had soldiers on the streets at night but they just kind of hung out.
That whole episode was just very unfortunate...
I'm just a softie, in a sense. I see Spencer as a Shakespearean figure. Very flawed, full of wasted potential, brought down by their own choices.
I wouldn't be surprised if an alt-Right HBO miniseries is being cooked up by the usual suspects.
Dramatic, not documentary
On a certain level respect is extended to anyone who puts his neck out for this but that doesn't mean they can do no wrong
Yes, he did a lot of wrong.
Maybe. I'm just reluctant to cut him much slack, because of the stakes, and the potential consequences of the resources and opportunities he squandered, to say nothing of the disrespect he showed to the people closest to him, even those who bled for him.
@Bjorn - MD Yeah, I'm not making any excuses for that. I'm just pathologically altruistic. (why I should never be in top leadership)
Patrick is the real deal and is doing great things. This is the organization to be in, and I'm glad I was admitted.
@Wood-Ape - OK/MN Don't get me wrong; if there's scorn in my "voice" (typing?), it's obviously for him, not you. I hear ya, though. It's easy to become sentimental about people you identity with.
I got ya.
