Decrypting the Alt-Right: How to Recognize a [email protected] | ContraPoints

“You will not replace us! You will not replace us!” “Blood and soil! Blood and soil!” “White lives matter! White lives matter!” “Excuse me. What about the Alt-Left that came charging
at the, as you say, the Alt-Right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?” “A local World War II veteran wants you
to hear and see this next story because he’s worried what he fought against so long
ago is making a comeback here in the United States.” “He believes what happened—” Scheiße! Hi. In this video, I’m going to talk about How
to Recognize a Fascist. [80s intro music] To begin, let’s take a look at what fascism
is. Contemporary fascists share three core beliefs: 1: People of European heritage are or ought
to constitute a biological, cultural and political unity known as the white race—sometimes
dog-whistled as “Western culture”. 2: Jews are masterminding the destruction
of the white race through multiculturalism and non-white immigration, a plot that fascists
call “white genocide” or “ethnic replacement.” 3: The only way to save the white race is
to establish a “white homeland,” or “ethnostate,” from which non-whites and degenerates must
be purged. Now, as I’ve argued in past videos, all
three of these beliefs are false. So what is it that’s attracting people to fascism? Well, let’s take a look at a contemporary Nazi
propaganda video and see if we can figure that out. “Who are you? I’m not talking about your name or your
occupation, I’m talking about something bigger, something deeper. I’m talking about your connection to a culture,
a history, a destiny. Our ancestors had a very strong sense of their
identity. They could say ‘I’m a Roman,’ ‘I’m
a Saxon,’ ‘I’m a Dane.’” Good news, boys. You no longer have to be some schlubby fuck
sadly riding the escalator at Ikea and thinking how much you hate your job as a marketing
and communications associate, because the sun hath risen on the day wherein you take
your father’s claymore in hand and defend Voltaire and adorable blonde children against
black civil rights, you know, just like the Vikings did! “We’re often told that being an American,
or a Briton, or a German, or any European nationality is about being dedicated to a collection of
abstractions and buzzwords: democracy, freedom, tolerance, multiculturalism. But a nation based on freedom is just another
place to go shopping.” So, life is basically sad, and in capitalist
society, that sadness is a sense of isolation, an anxiety that there’s nothing more to
life than acquiring 1990s collector’s edition Tampa Bay Buccaneers slash Slim Jim beer steins
until you die. Fortunately, thanks to Fascism, you don’t
have to. Fascism promises you a part in something greater
than yourself. A homeland for your people! A sense of belonging to a tradition that stretches
back thousands of years, and as far into the future—just be sure to be extra proud of
the parts of your heritage that involve buying and selling other human beings as property. The most basic way to resist fascism is to
recognize its propaganda for what it is. The idea that appreciating European culture
is in some way linked to the establishing a white ethnostate is just nonsense. Your enjoyment of Beethoven or white
babies or whatever you get off to is in no way impeded by the proximity of people with
different skin colors and traditions. And it certainly does not require nation,
culture, and geographic ancestry to all become the same thing. But in order to recognize fascism you need
to do a lot more than reject the most overt propaganda. In the wake of the disastrous Alt-Right rally
in Charlottesville earlier this month, the Nazis have been driven back into the shadows. At least two of their major websites were
shut down, confederate monuments were removed all over the country, and several prominent
fascists have begun backpedaling. None of this means fascists will go away,
it just means they’ll have to be more subtle and indirect. Shortly after the Charlottesville rally, a
post titled “Fixing the Alt-Right” appeared on /pol/, the imageboard where Millennial
Nazis talk strategy and trade pictures of Japanese nymphets. The post outlines some basic fascist strategy. “Don’t get trapped in an echo chamber
where you can no longer relate to normies. Pretending that Charlottesville didn’t massively
push the average white person away is really stupid. We have a chance to actually make changes
now that Trump has shifted the Overton window to the right, but we need to be smart and
make the movement appealing to the AVERAGE white person.” And the way to do that is: “Disavow all Nazi/KKK edgelord LARPers. There is no way to lose public support quicker
than going around making Nazi salutes and holding Tiki torches while chanting ‘Jews
will not replace us.’ This instantly makes the average person hate
you.” “Build a populist movement with realistic,
incremental overt goals. Repealing the 1965 Immigration Act and replacing
it with something that both limits total immigration and prioritizes white immigration is an actual
tangible political goal.” “Keep the long-term goals covert, and don’t
ever reveal your power level. Talking openly about a white ethnostate only
leads to failure and the average public turning against you, so disavow anyone who reveals
his power level. Leftists will recognize dog whistles and know
we’re crypto, but normies won’t listen to them.” So at first glance this seems like a really
silly, juvenile post that references Dragonball Z, but it actually displays a sense of realistic
pragmatism and an incremental approach to long-term goals that I wish were more common
on the left. But of course the strategy described here
isn’t new. Older generations of white supremacists have
been doing this stuff for decades. When overt racism is politically unacceptable,
politicians have to use coded language in order to appeal to racists. Republican strategist Lee Atwater explained
the technique in an interview in 1981: “You start out in 1954 by saying, ‘N—.’ By 1968, you can’t say ‘n—’—that hurts
you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’
rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now that you’re
talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic
things and a byproduct of them is that blacks get hurt worse than whites.” So if you want to recognize a fascist, you
have to know how to read subtext, and how to hear dog whistles, because 99 times out
of 100, a fascist will disavow fascism, racism, and white supremacy, at least when they’re
talking to you, a non-fascist. Rallies with swastikas and Nazi salutes are
the exception, not the rule. Fascists are more likely to gain traction,
and are hence more dangerous, when they use subtler tactics. So for the rest of this video, I’ll be describing
the particular strategies that fascists use to code their ideas, and make them more palatable
to conservatives, centrists, and liberals. Strategy 1: Outright Denial “Never reveal your power level. Disavow anyone who reveals their power level.” This means that if someone acts like a fascist,
has fascist beliefs, repeats fascist talking points, and hangs out with other fascists,
the fact that they publicly denounce fascism should be worth absolutely nothing to you,
and shouldn’t even enter into your consideration of whether they’re a fascist. After all, “I’m not a fascist” is exactly
what a fascist would say. Strategy 2: Euphemism “ Of course I’m not a fascist, I’m an
alternative Euro-nationalist simply trying to preserve Western values.” Fascists constantly shift their terminology
in order to avoid the negative connotations that develop around the names of their movements whenever
people figure out what they really are. So they insist they aren’t Nazis or white
supremacists—just “white nationalists,” or “Alt-Right.” But as people catch on to the fact that white
nationalists and the Alt-Right are just Nazis, they’ll shift their terminology again and
start telling you: “I’m not a white nationalist, I’m an
identitarian.” Or whatever the next thing is. But it’s still the same bastards, they’re
just using a different name. They’ll also use euphemisms for core components
of their beliefs. If talking about preserving a homeland for
white people sounds too fascist, they’ll talk about preserving “Western civilization”
or “Western culture” instead. If the phrase “white genocide” discredits
them, they’ll say “ ethnic replacement” instead. And if it’s considered hate speech to want
to purge non-white people, they’ll talk instead about purging immigrants, criminals,
rapists, and terrorists—and leave it to the audience to catch the color-coding on
their own. Strategy 3: Pedantry “It’s absurd to call me a Nazi, the German
National Socialist Party hasn’t existed since 1945.” That’s right, and I bet he’s an isolationist
too, not an expansionist like the Nazis. Fascists use this kind of selective pedantry
to dodge derogatory labels and also just to bog you down in a petty terminological dispute. This is a good way to waste your time and
divert attention away from whatever led you to call them a Nazi in the first place. “I’m not a white supremacist, I don’t
think that whites are superior to other races, I simply think we deserve a homeland
of our own, as do all peoples.” There it is again. And next he’s gonna tell us that since Asians
have the highest IQs, he’s, if anything, an Asian supremacist. And then you’ll get sucked into arguing
about IQ instead of talking about the fact that the main goal of the politics he supports
is the political and social supremacy of white people over all other Americans and Europeans. In other words, white supremacy. Strategy 4: Secret Symbols Nazis have always taken an interest in occult
symbols like the Black Sun on Fritz’s ring, or like the swastika itself, but more obscure
symbols can be useful as a kind of secret handshake that lets Nazis recognize each other,
without normies taking notice. The best symbols to use for this purpose are
ones that are not generally associated with fascism, or at least have some other meaning,
such as the Othala rune or the iron cross. Better still are symbols that, until adoption
by fascists, are completely innocuous. Modern fascists have taken to using almost
arbitrary emoji as a way to wink and nod at each other, notably the frog (after pepe),
the milk, and the OK sign. So it doesn’t matter what the symbols are. In fact it’s important that the symbols
constantly change, so that normies don’t catch on. By the time you watch this video, they probably
won’t even be using the frog anymore. Maybe it’ll be this. Or this. The only way to find out is to watch fascists
carefully and see what symbols they use to identify themselves. And, of course, another advantage of using
innocuous symbols is that when leftists try to point those symbols out, the fascist can
always say: “ These gullible SJWs now think that even
the ok sign is racist. Is there anything they don’t think is racist?” And the gullible centrists will be taken right
in. The poor centrists. They’re so worried that Antifa is going
to punch them because of their hair or their emoji. And, you know, some leftists are assholes
or idiots, so I should say, you should never assume someone is a fascist just because of
their hair or the emoji they use. These are only little pieces of a larger puzzle. But white centrists also need to understand
that the way you feel about Antifa at political rallies—oh god what if they profile me and
attack me unfairly—that’s how a lot of black people feel about the police all the
time. And the fascists whose free speech you defend
so often are trying to drum up exactly the sentiments that make the police dangerous
to black people, and that make it dangerous for queer people to be themselves in public. So, I hope that’s something you think about. Anyway, it’s not that the ok sign is inherently
racist or that anyone who uses it is racist, and in fact it’s its very innocuousness
that makes it useful as a crypto-fascist wink and nudge. But the misunderstanding about calling these
little things racist sets the stage for: Strategy 5: Camaraderie of the Accused “The left accuses everyone of racism. They think all white people are Nazis. If it’s acceptable to attack and censor
me, they’ll come for you next.” Fascists have very effectively exploited the
general hostility toward “social justice warriors,” especially online. Unfortunately, not all leftists have my connoisseur’s
eye for detecting fascism, and some of them do throw the accusation at centrists or liberals. This doesn’t cause centrists to become allied
with fascists—history shows that happens regardless—but it can accelerate the process,
lending some plausibility to the fear that moderate centrists have that anti-fascists
will come after them next. It’s tactically smart for fascists to make
the most of this situation, and use it to pump up sympathy and solidarity from centrists. Strategy 6: “Irony,” “Jokes,” “Satire,”
and “Memes” “Of course I wasn’t actually being racist. It was just an edgy meme. Can’t anyone take a joke anymore, or will
the Antifa fascists violently attack you over humor now too?” Here’s a uniquely Millennial twist on the
racist dog-whistle. You shroud your sincere ideas in cartoon characters
and memes, and then when called out, you mock your accuser for being a clueless normie who
isn’t in on the joke. Sometimes irony can be a safe way to explore
ideas that you’re not quite ready to own yet. Before I realized I was transgender, I used
to jump at any opportunity to crossdress “ironically.” So when you see people joking about being
Nazis, they could be just joking, or they could be using irony to partially conceal
the truth. It’s difficult to tell the difference, and
that’s the point. “But Kekistan is just a satire of identity
politics.” Well, it’s a hilarious satire of civil rights
movements that just happens to use a Nazi battle flag. And while it may have been popularized originally
by goddamn centrist YouTubers, who are unable or unwilling to see how helpful they’re
being to fascists, Kekistan became the perfect pseudo-ironic pretext for, uh, identitarians,
including the ones who led the rally where an edgy shitposter hilariously memed his car
into a crowd of people. No wonder the SPLC now describes it as a hate
symbol. “Pff those normie fools. It’s just a joke.” Strategy 7: Shifting Blame “Why doesn’t the mainstream media cover
violent anti-white organizations like Black Lives Matter or Antifa?” This is essentially just a tu quoque fallacy,
especially heinous because of the equivocation between fascist violence and anti-fascist
violence, and between white nationalism and black civil rights. The implication is that activism to reduce
urban poverty or violence against black people is just the mirror image of white supremacist
ethnic cleansing. Shortly after the Charlottesville incident,
our proto-fascist president called out Antifa and the “Alt-Left,” a term fascists invented
to distract liberals and centrists, and establish the assumption that there must be some leftist
equivalent of the Alt-Right. Because if you have a word for a thing, that
thing must exist. “Both sides” rhetoric is useful to fascists
because it diverts attention away from them, vilifies anti-fascists, wins sympathy from
centrists, and helps to shift the center of acceptable discourse in their direction. Strategy 8: Incrementalism “You don’t have to support a white ethnostate
to want common-sense policies about immigration. Of course I don’t support violence against
the non-white people already here, but we do have a right to preserve our own boundaries and our culture, don’t we?” The common thread in all fascist strategies
is deception and manipulation, often aimed at representing what is essentially an attack
on non-white people as a defense of white people and “white culture.” The fascist’s long-term goal is a homogenous
ethnostate, which at some point will require massive ethnic cleansing of one kind or another. But of course they won’t tell you about
that unless they think you’re also a fascist. The strategic fascist knows it’s better
to start with realistic, achievable goals, and that means focusing first on stopping
non-white immigration, something they’ll try to get you—the centrist, conservative,
or liberal—on board with by emphasizing the danger and criminality of non-white immigrants
and refugees. If they can whip up enough racist sentiment
with that rhetoric, they can later turn that energy against the non-white people who are
already here. Strategy 9: The Free-Speech Defense “You may not agree with what I say, but
I have just as much a right to speak and assemble as anyone else.” Much of anti-fascist strategy involves limiting
fascist’s ability to publicly recruit and intimidate, often by shutting down fascist
marches and rallies, or by pressuring platforms not to host fascists. The best way for the fascist to oppose that
strategy is to appeal to the liberal value of free speech. Nothing tugs on those classical liberal heartstrings
like a tale of woe about how unfairly silenced you are. But remember, fascists do not actually value
freedom, democracy, or diversity. They only value the race, the people, the
nation. Their long term goal is a society where there’s
no room for anyone who isn’t white, or even anyone who isn’t a fascist, to exist. So you can begrudgingly concede to fascists
their constitutional freedoms, but remember: you shouldn’t expect any reciprocity from
them. They do not care about “diversity of opinions”—in
fact they actively oppose it. That kind of talking point is just a ploy
to protect fascist recruitment and intimidation, and to garner sympathy from centrists. [drone] Fascist strategies work because centrists
are usually naïve about them: they don’t notice dog whistles, and usually give fascists
the benefit of the doubt. Following politics with centrists can be like
watching a raunchy comedy movie with children who don’t get sexual innuendo. There’s a whole hidden layer of meaning
that they’re not picking up. This makes liberals, centrists, and conservatives
who are not savvy to fascist strategy easy to exploit. Time and time again, such people end up inadvertently
spreading around fascist memes and talking points without intending to or realizing it. And then they end up bewildered when leftists
who recognize the dog whistles take offense. Now you might wonder: well, if fascists disguise
themselves, and liberals inadvertently duplicate fascist memes, then isn’t just about everyone
suspect? Aren’t you in fact just a paranoid leftist
who thinks everyone is a Nazi? Well, that’s what they want you to think! They benefit from the confusion and the appearance
that the left is paranoid. I’ll admit there are cases where I can’t
tell if someone is genuinely Alt-Light, or if they’re just an oblivious centrist who
picked up the talking points. Likewise, it can be impossible to tell the
difference between someone who is Alt-Light but not an outright fascist, and a fascist
who’s concealing their power level. So in a sense, yes, I am a little bit paranoid. The other day the ACLU tweeted a picture of
an adorable blond child with the caption, “this is the future ACLU members want,”
and for a second I was like, what the fuck? Because it has a close resemblance to a 14
words meme. But of course it’s unintentional, it’s
the ACLU. “I wanted to make sure, unlike most politicians,
that what I said was correct, not make a quick statement. The statement I made on Saturday, the first
statement, was a fine statement. But you don’t make statements that direct unless
you know the facts.” Yes, I have become crazy. But this paranoia, self-doubt, and questioning
of your own perception is the psychological consequence of being constantly gaslit by
fascists pretending not to be fascists and communicating in code. And it’s the intentional consequence of
that. Gaslighting is just another tool in the fascist’s
psychological arsenal. So, how do we get better at resisting fascist
strategies? I know if you’re a centrist who has inadvertently
repeated fascist rhetoric or defended fascists, it seems like the left all thinks you’re
a Nazi and that we hate you, and I admit that I am pretty frustrated with you right now—obviously. But my forgiveness and encouragement are wide
open to anyone who wants to get better at resisting fascism. Fascist strategies can be very subtle and
very cunning, so don’t feel guilty for falling for them, just try to get better at resisting. I guess my message to liberals, centrists,
and non-fascist conservatives is this: if you care about even one person of color, or
queer person, or immigrant, stand up for that person by opposing the Alt-Right and its allies. Do not give them a platform. Do not host debates with them on your YouTube
channel. Yes, they have a constitutional right to free
speech, but they do not have a right to a megaphone, and you should not be giving them
one. I know to a lot of you it just seems like
the free marketplace of ideas, everyone expressing their ideas peacefully. But to more vulnerable people, some ideas
can be existentially dangerous, because if those ideas catch on, their lives are at stake. Now if you’re just an average person without
a big platform, then you actually can debate, and you should be debating. Argue with your friends who are getting kinda
Alt-Righty. Argue with your family, argue with your coworkers. Let them know that you don’t agree. Make them listen to a different perspective. And if you’re someone who’s gotten involved
with the Alt-Right in the last couple years and is now disillusioned to find yourself
in the midst of a dangerous hate group, you have to get out now. It is not too late. Society will forgive you. If you don’t know how to leave, look up
Life After Hate, an organization founded by a former neo-Nazi that helps people get out
of hate groups. And as for all you lefties: na zdrowie! Keep up the good fight, comrades. [Star-Spangled Banner] [synthwave] [mysterious piano music]

  • 19:29…I feel like he's making it just way to many times during the course of one speech for it to be attributed to paranoia.

  • I know it's incredibly bigoted to not find trans women as attractive and merely an aversion I've hammered deep into my psyche, but wow you are one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. I need to reevaluate my sexuality.

  • Fascism is hiding in the modern leftist SJW movement who have gone so far left they have become totalitarian.

  • Sort by new and you find the most Paul Joseph Watson-esque arguments… It's honestly baffling. I can't tell if these people are 72 or 12.
    These are the sort of arguments I made when I was 12.

  • This video changed my life many months ago. I was slowly slowly being pulled into the alt-right and I'm deeply ashamed to say I was starting to become racist. I didn't even realise as I would justify it in my head. This snapped me back. It honestly felt like I was being brainwashed for 2 years. These ppl use these techniques no doubt in my mind. Hate, anger and fear consumed me and I am so sorry for ever having those sick thoughts. I'm so happy I woke up before it was too late

  • What a crock of absolute shit. Just anotger subverted pathological altrustic mentally ill moron. Fascism is state directed capitalism, IE Obamacare with a government regulation. Granted it's true, homosexuality transgenderism multiculturalism and Feminism are Zionist Marxist propaganda tools to perpetuate degeneracy destroy the nuclear family and indoctrinate children to accept communism. Thank you for doing your part for the depopulation a d wester destruction agenda. You're the real fascist. You cry about the colonists being terrible immigrants efi killed the natives but then love the new wave of immigrant invaders who of course will never perpetuate miscegebation against whites. Never in history has a group of morons like you accepted and perpetuated their own demise.

  • I ageee with all you said, the problem is most of your viewers are us that agree with you. Talking to trump supporters is frustrating as they usually say god is working his will through trump or trump is forgiven. The religious zealots are worse believing the lies their ministers and twisted bible cult pushes. Now for my little bit of paranoia, all of us have seen trump, fox and the other alt right entities blame the rest of us for their misdeeds and crimes. Like the idiot jones false flag claims. Here's the paranoid part, some of antifa may be alt right plants just like the soviet had plants in the 67 Chicago riots. What better way to make people mistrust Democrats, the left and all of us deviants then by sparking antifa attacks on the right. Ok sounds crazy but it was part of the soviet play book and I see trump using both the nazi and soviet play books. So I hope I am paranoid cause it's better if I am wrong.

  • Fascism in its most unsullied definition is the adoration of the fasci; which is to say using the symbology behind a bundle of sticks almost always with a broad axe attached.

  • Aaaand while the 'left' fights the 'right' the empire bombs the shit out of 9 countries with the support of both sides. Even if you don't care about that Obama was easily as hectic in his immigration policies as trump. Your whole left right thing just makes it easier to govern and rob you.

  • I've been watching your videos in reverse order in an attempt to get some sort of perspective along with everything else? This is the first video that gave me a headache. Not in a bad way? I need a break.

  • The best fuel for fascism is hate. The best way to weaken it is not to hate. About Life After Hate:

  • There is a difference between Fascist/Racist and Nationalist. Sure one can both, but you can also just be a nationalist (as in someone who believes in a nation state) that wants to protect local regional cultures, and wants immigrants to assimilate. You can think this about the Czech Republic and its culture or South Korea and its culture or Argentina and it's culture. But yes Western culture can be a dog whistle but it isn't always one just like the emojis etc. I do believe immigration is done best when it is controlled and the people are assimilated to the local culture, and that some cultures are more advanced than others,I don't think that makes me a fascist.

  • I don’t know what to believe anymore. On one hand, the left genuinely believes no one can have a right-wing opinion with being manipulated by, or directly being a fascist. On the other hand, the right might actually be secretly full of nazis using code language without you even realizing it.

    It feels like both sides are wrong and right at the same time. I have multiple conflicting ideas in my head at the same time that I believe even though they directly contradict each other. This must be what Orwell meant by doublethink.

    The only way to win the modern political game is not to play. Make like Candide and tend to your garden.

  • Your paranoia leads to people losing their jobs and being attacked by the virtue of "appearing fascist" in their views, despite the fact that most of the time they simply hold different beliefs than you do e.g. controlled immigration and low taxes. You defend anti-fascist action, yet clearly state you believe there is a thin line between fascist and someone who is "alt lite" or merely conservative. If so, this paves the way for so-called anti fascist action on anyone who is conservative because this thin line is up for interpretation and validates violence against people expressing their views. Fascism will never rise prominently in the marketplace of ideas after the horror of Nazism. To believe that it will gain significant traction to the point where America becomes a fascist regime is wilful ignorance.

  • Western culture should mean shit that mattered like renaissance art and the French Revolution and Norse paganism

    It's annoying that it's been stolen. Also on that note, does Richard Spencer realise that (until he brought up consumerism) the west he described (tolerant, liberal, multicultural) is exactly the one that people like and are trying to protect from him? 🤔

  • Only white people had slaves, only white people aren't allowed to have their own homelands, only white people can be racist bigots, etc, etc. Yawn

  • Can we also talk about how Fascists often shut down left-wing speech they dislike as well? Their claim to the free speech defence is disingenuous and deceptive!

  • Mmm being a color is not culture. If linking skin color with British culture, for example, is retarded.

    You’ll still be drinking tea and having shitastic teeth even if you’re all black.

  • Yeah I was never delusional about Sargon, Watson, Etc. I use them as comedic value to promoting absurd ideas.

  • Even the idea of culture as something to be isolated and preserved is ridiculous. Culture is something that grows and changes over time. Different peoples bring their histories and traditions, and people realize that that guy over there might have a really good idea and we should do that one thing he's doing. Take food, for instance. Cultures mixed, mingled, and now we have white people realizing they love salsa and Japan celebrating Christmas at KFC. Don't be afraid of the mix. Try new foods, new dances, new forms of art. Because that is how a culture evolves.

  • Naming something can TOTALLY make it exist. For example, if I say "Ethical, intelligent president" it…..oh nevermind, did not work.

  • We need someone to get on the insides of these message boards and hate groups. One of us earns their trust (shouldn't be too hard to do it from behind a screen), gets a membership, and screenshots the heck out of every racist tirade they find.

  • Free speech means the government can't stop you from saying anything. That's it. You don't get to….
    Say it wherever you want. People are entirely within THEIR rights to kick you out of their store, website, or house.
    Avoid any repercussions. You better believe that, if someone doesn't like what you said, they get to let you know.
    Complain about your rights being infringed upon when that very same right is the one that the thousands of people breaking down your virtual door for posting that hateful tirade are exercising. This is their free speech too.

  • I love how fascists idolize Greco-Romanism when they were both mediterranean and pretty brown themselves

    I adore your hot take at 2:18 <3

  • "They have the right to free speech, but they don't have the right to a megaphone".
    Just, perfect, I always felt like that but I wouldn't have found more fitting words to express it in a million years.

  • 8:00 Thats called a kafka argument, and is generally frowned upon. Dont do that btw

    On the usage of weird secret handshakes, Id fault the far left. Its funny how the host itself makes it as if the main goal is to prove the other person is a nazi or anything. Like what does that even achieve? Just another example of how the far left has used various methods to silence the far right, which doesnt exactly eliminate the ideology. You dont need to make the world know the other person is a nazi, you just need the other person to understand his/her idea sucks.

    If an ideology is bad, the people harbouring it needs to be able to safely come out in the open and fight with arguments with the only risk being that people know they are wrong but no more. That hasnt happened yet. Until then, good luck eliminating an ideology lol, because its not gonna happen

  • Interesting, so in point one of this video, it implies that the Dalai Lama is a fascist since he said in 2018 "Europe belongs to the Europeans" and that refugees should eventually return to develop their own countries. Also, just for your information, Fascism did not only occur in Europe. Fails on the first point to correctly establish a baseline of what constitutes fascism.
    Also, Western Culture is NOT synonymous to 'the white race'. It's videos like this that confuse AntiFa into thinking everyone they disagree with is a fascist, because it is built upon an existing prejudice from the video creator, and ultimately a heavily biased opinion of what constitutes fascism.
    As for points 2 and 3, I have no qualms with those being identifying factors of fascistic beliefs.

  • This video should be titled, "How to conflate average people who want to preserve democracy with actual fascists". One thing I have learnt though is I see how the real fascists have convinced you into this position, and ultimately turned you against moderate people.

  • @13:19 – you do realise that pepe the frog and the OK symbol in particular (Source of the OK hand gesture:, was actually engineered to get the mainstream media into a hysteric to earn some virtual credit with their peers? It is literally a joke.. you're simply being fooled into believing it's genuine symbols of the 'fascists'.

  • Does she realize that they are applying the same reverse ridiculous mind games that actual fascists accuse the Jews of. It means that you could never potentially criticize any left wing policy, because doing so would lead to accusations of right wing dog whistles. This was one of her poorest videos, so i'm glad I watched the recent stuff first as otherwise I would have disregarded her content straight away.

  • I followed people that were already kinda alt-lite (or less) and later veered all the way. I had online friends that fell into it. It's like a virus because I would see their posts about the subject all the time. I think about that fact of how some points threaten peoples' lives. I am not white, not cis. As soon as I saw what was happening I bailed out because it was obvious to me. But were I a standard white man, surrounded by all that toxicity, I wonder where I'd have ended up.

  • True centrist never take any side. Those who are already on the side of the right wing or have their heart in facism just mask that they are actually right wing and claim to be centrist to appeal to the public as moderates who just want to get out of all this madness. How do I know I am and have been a true centrist all my life sister. Great video by the way

  • Ooof that hit hard. Did you add the music to the Richard Spencer video or was that the original? Either way, seeing it shown on a disembodied flickering 80s CRT like was chilling, Cronenberg style….

    PS I fucking loathe Lauren Southern, so much so that it's probably harming me….

  • LOL such bullshit here. "Western Culture" is not a dog whistle for fascism. Its exactly what it means. You know… the dominant culture of the day that has brought you everything you enjoy in life. Also its, funny that you use one quote to paint all conservatives as fascists because they want to cut taxes. Cutting taxes means less government which is the exact OPPOSITE of fascism, dummy. Less government = more freedom for everyone, not just whitey. Its funny to see authoritarians call others fascists. The same authoritarians who are attacking individual freedoms in the name of group think. The same authoritarians who want the government to compell your speech. The same ones who want to censor the internet. The same ones hitting others with bike locks for carrying the American Flag. The same ones who say the Star Spangled Banner is racist. Now, any sense of nationalism is fascism to these dis empowered losers.

  • Fascism is a political stance not a racial thing. Nation of Islam is fascist for sure and they are all black. They want an ethno state, are far right religiously and have nothing nice to say about Jewish people.

    Imperial Japan around WW2 was fascist. They were allied with the Nazis. I think there’s a good argument that Hamas is fascist. A lot of Muslim countries definitely are.

    Why do you frame this as a white people only thing?

  • We need to face the reality that 1) all people ARE NOT created equal, and 2) most people ARE NOT able or ready to rule themselves, 3) Democracy has failed, 4) "Western Culture" is, whether you like it or not, inherently superior to all other cultures.

    Agree that the Nazis shit needs to be purged from the movement. It's cringe as fuck. I promote a form of traditional American Identity, that reflects the vision that the founding fathers had for our nation (hint: it involves "free White people" and not a hundred million Mexicans flooding through the borders).

    At this point, a "White Ethnostate" is not a realistic goal. However, prioritizing White immigration over 3rd world brown people is. There is no reason this shouldn't be the policy, as it was up until 1965. We were almost 90% White until the 1950s.

    NO ONE, and I mean, NO ONE is promoting the idea of a mass genocide of non-Whites. Don't be ridiculous. Anyone that does is either 1) psychotic, or 2) a troll (this is most of them).

    Why is it "racist" to want to live in a majority White country, but not, for instance, to live in a majority Asian or Negro country? No one cares that Japan is 98.5% ethnic Japanese, or Malawi is 99% Bantu. No one is accusing them of "supremacism" because they choose to preserve the ethnic fabric of their nations.

    I don't want to kill all of the brown-skinned people. I simply want a live in a majority White society, around other White people that share a common cultural background.

  • So, what we’re saying is, fascists are a cult-like movement that indoctrinates those who are gullible with apparent reason and logic. Preying on insecurities.

    Wait fuck this is how I make friends ABORT ABORT

  • funny how fascists overlook the fact that the "abstraction" of freedom, toleration and multiculturalism are all themselves invaluable contributions of the very whitewashed European civilization they so admire. if you want to persevere that heritage, these are its most indispensable elements.

  • There are folks on the "right" such as myself(libertarian) who are pro immigration pro gay rights pro choice. However a nation should be able to control who comes in to protect national sovereignty. A lot of far left proponents say anybody who disagrees with highly liberal policies is alt right fascist… it's an untenable position and a way to shut down meaningful discussion.

  • As much as I like armored skeptic, it's always fun to see him get called out for these things.

    Also, as a former self identifying centrist who was being played into this kind of thing, I am really glad for content like this that points out how the alt-right subtly manipulates people

  • I'm convinced that you're a CIA agent. The college you went to is the country's number one university for CIA recruitment, and when I look up your surname in Wikipedia a prominent CIA officer is one of the figures that comes up so it may well be in your blood. What you're doing here is exactly like the kind of anti-Muslim propaganda that neocons have been making for the last few decades, it's divisive and meant to make people suspicious of their neighbors instead of uniting them against the neoliberal neoconservative establishment. You've already spread such cancer as pro-deplatforming anti-free speech propaganda among the left. You treat Richard Spencer the same way Emmanuel Goldstein was treated in the book 1984, and every time your ilk rejoice in his punching I am reminded of the Two Minutes Hate ritual from that book.

  • So you, a left fascist, trying to beat down right fascists makes you less fascist? morally superior? you realize you are white right? and male no less. You are the epitome of a traitor in some ways. The funniest part is that you call out all these fallacies on rhetorical logic, logic that is rhetorical cannot be fallacious. There is a difference between stating what one thinks is right, and one declaring that what that one thinks is truth is absolutely truth. Art cannot be wrong. You are yourself engaging in the latter, whereas many of the attacks you have used are pointed at the former.

    4chan is the name of Earth and it is sad you identify it with people who are too regressive for your taste. Not all alt-rights, rightish centrists, regressives, and conservatives are Nazis.

    Your videos should be reported because this really is propaganda hate speech intended to paint a target on a wide range of people, of many shapes and forms, for radicals such as yourself to gangrape. You disgust me.

  • So… do the American far-right like the French now, or still hate them cheez eatin surrender monkeys? I mean, "Freedom Fries"… remember when that was a thing that totally rational people said? Or do extremely stable genius' not misunderestimate anymore?

  • I bet you George Soros coined the redefinition of facism, to get the lime light off of him! Being a Jewish traitor in WW2, he helped FUND Hitler to power. You dumbass leftists don't even know what the word "fascist" MEANS, you're just repeating what post modernists professors tell you, to influence how you view the world. TRUMP2020!

  • Can we talk about the fact that democracy was invented in Greece a county that's being shat upon nowadays by the "truly Europeans" or how Christianity came from the middle East. Jesus was a terrorist back in the day

  • I agree with you largely but it's been admitted that the symbols thing is largely a joke by edgelords and the left largely overreacts to them giving the edgelords what they want
