There’s Nothing “Right” Or Conservative About Neo-Nazis

The establishment media, especially CNN, MSNBC and various other fake news purveyors have been working overtime to sell the idea that Neo-Nazis are part of the conservative movement and that the racism and hate they display is a pervasive sickness in American culture and politics.

No matter what label Neo-Nazis put on themselves, there’s nothing “right” or conservative about their ideas or Death of a Nationtheir leaders.

Indeed, as Dinesh D’Souza proved through his book and new movie, “Death of a Nation,” the ideas propounded by such white supremacist leaders Jason Kessler and Richard Spencer are thoroughly grounded in Leftist and Socialist ideology.

As D’Souza explained in a recent C-SPAN interview* “What I am contesting is the meaning of that event [the Charlottesville riot]. Because, from the left’s point of view this was right wing white supremacy, and that was the whole point for Trump to condemn it. I deny that. I deny that, and I deny it, based on a close analysis of who was there and who these white supremacists are, and in this book, “Death of a Nation, I go through the list.”

“Jason Kessler, the founder, the organizer of – of Charlottesville, turns out to be an Obama activist, and an Occupy Wall Street guy.”

“Think about this. Does it make sense, someone who is an Obama voter and supporter becomes a white supremacist? That makes no sense to me. You think the media would be, like ‘Let’s check this guy out,’ but there was a Charlottesville paper that did. It looked into his background, and it turns out he has a long left-wing history. They interviewed his girlfriend, and she goes ‘he broke up with me because I am too conservative.’ This guy, Jason Kessler.”

“Now, we move on to the poster boy of white supremacy, Richard Spencer. This guy is so controversial, that when he went to speak in Florida, the governor declared a state of emergency. So, I interview him and its riveting, it’s about four minutes in the movie. And I asked him a series of questions. It’s very illuminating.”

“Does he believe all men are created equal? ‘No.’”

“I say, ‘Does he believe in individual dignity? ‘No.’”

“Does he believe in the right to life? ‘No.’”

“Where do rights come from? He says ‘Well, they don’t come from God.‘”

“So, where to do they come from?  He said, ‘They come from the government.’”

“He is a statist. He believes the government gives you your rights.”

“And I ask him ‘What do you think of Reagan?’. He goes ‘Terrible president‘.”

“I go ‘Who are your favorite presidents?’ He lists a bunch of Democrats.”

“I go ‘Well, those are all Democrats.’. He goes ‘Yeah, I know. But it’s just a party.'”

“And, he’s naming people like Andrew Jackson, who was the founder of the Democratic Party. The point I’m trying to make is that the white supremacists are not conservative. They are not conservative in the modern, American sense of conservative. They are unrecognizable to a normal conservative, and that’s obvious from the movie, so what I’m doing really, through a combination of history, and investigative journalism, is contesting these prevailing narratives, but I’m doing it in a responsible and civil way.”

So how did these Leftists, who identify with Germany’s National Socialist Party become identified as being part of the Right or conservative movement?

The first and most important reason is that conservatives and Neo-Nazis are battling for the hearts and minds of America’s working class – the forgotten men and women that President Trump speaks of so often.

The Left’s urban elite have absolutely no interest in pursuing or serving the interests of these Americans – they are all about identity politics and long ago decided to bank their political future on serving the interests of illegal aliens and expanding immigration from Third World populations already grounded in the anti-constitutional ideologies of Islam and Socialism.

Thus the battle is for the hearts and minds of mostly young white people who believe the Republican and Democratic parties have ignored their legitimate complaints that free trade as practiced by both political parties isn’t free at all, and that the econometric view of American jobs as just one market in a global market has pitted elite policy-makers against the best interests and quality of life of their fellow Americans.

The Neo-Nazis are fighting for the allegiance of these working-class voters by blaming the loss of their upward mobility and quality of life on racial grievance, but their solution – government oppression of minorities – isn’t conservative at all.

However, it serves the political interest of Democrats to undermine President Trump and his conservative – populist agenda by pushing this guilt by association narrative and splitting the working men and women of America along racial and ethnic lines.

If African – Americans, especially in the Rust Belt – can be convinced that Trump and his white supporters are a bunch of racists then his policies of reducing regulations, raising wages by restricting immigration, rebuilding American manufacturing, renegotiating trade deals and protecting Second Amendment liberties must, through the magic of guilt by association, also be racist.

There’s nothing “Right” or conservative about the Neo-Nazis who gathered in Washington last weekend, but, just as it did in Nazi Germany, their movement will only grow if conservatives join the Left in undermining President Trump’s Make America Great Again economic agenda.

Dinesh D'Souza is the Real Leftist

Dinesh D'Souza has cherrypicked facts to try to distinguish the Alt Right from the GOP. He focuses on certain statements from certain individuals that fit the narrative that he wants to create, while ignoring contradictory information -- which is exactly what he has done in his books.

A fact that would not support D'Souza's narrative at all, is that many participants in Unite the Right were libertarians. Chris Cantwell, although dubbed "the crying nazi," is in fact a libertarian. A large contingency of the UTR1 participants were probably Cantwell's listeners.

Jason Kessler is sui generis. I would not call him an Alt Right leader. Apart from his role in organizing Unite the Right, he has no notoriety. When he decided to have a similar event in 2018, all the well known participants in the first UTR rejected the idea. Kessler also said that he didn't want any neo-nazis at his UTR2, probably because the few individuals exhibiting swastikas etc. at UTR1 got all the attention; mainstream media like to focus on such things. If you look at the images from UTR2 (not stock images from UTR1 or elsewhere), you see American flags, and really nothing controversial. What's supposed to be neo-nazi about it?

Richard Spencer has good Republican credentials. He was in the Duke Conservative Union with Trump's advisor Stephen Miller, and he was the executive editor of Taki's Mag. He was also close to Paul Gottfried for a number of years. I am sure that Spencer would not call himself a national-socialist or nazi. The fact that he refuses to recite the standard shibboleths doesn't mean that he is not fundamentally conservative. (The Declaration of Independence, in fact, has always been a problem for conservatives.) His views seem to be similar to Theodore Roosevelt's.

Of course D'Souza didn't interview Peter Brimelow, an Alt Righer who used to write for National Review. That would totally demolish the narrative.

It seems to me that the Alt Right represents the direction in which the Trump electorate is tending. You look at Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson, and you see restrained expressions of the same tendency.

Dinesh D'Souza's background is with the Neocons, a bunch of former Trotskyites from the Democratic Party who had the audacity in 2016 to call themselves the "true conservatives." Dinesh D'Souza is the one who doesn't belong in the Trump GOP. (I suggest that this is why D'Souza's movies since 2012 have been less and less successful, despite Limbaugh's shilling.) When Republicans recognize that Neocons like Dinesh D'Souza are the enemy, instead of trying to get along with them, they will save themselves a lot of grief.

Right really equals Left

I am glad to finally see someone write a piece on this very topic. I have been saying for years that there is no real difference between commies and socialists and fascists and Nazis and progressives and today's liberal Democrats. They are all the same thing with different names. I hope that more and more people begin bringing this out because it very much needs to be brought out and talked about.
