Front-Page Bogeyman

Now, the Times knows this very well, but chooses to scaremonger its readers that a political movement defined by xenophobia and hate for people who are not white is about to take over the country. Hitler scared the Germans into hating the Jews by painting them as disloyal to the German state; the NY Times wants to scare Americans into thinking the Ku Klux Klan is on the rise. Elementary, my dear Sulzberger.

Mind you, there are some very good people who are, shall we say, Spencer followers, people like Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance, and Peter Brimelow, editor of VDARE, and also myself. There are many things that Spencer says that I agree with, and a lot that I don’t. But are we about to take over the country with our ideology? Alas, not bloody likely. The NY Times is basically antiwhite, anti-Christian, and antipolice. It is a newspaper whose major stockholder is Carlos Slim, the Mexican multibillionaire. Does that mean its pro-immigrant stance has been ordered from the top? Nah. But just imagine if Richard Spencer’s movement was financed by a Russian multibillionaire oligarch. The FBI would raid its offices—it doesn’t have any—and the media would demand Spencer be arrested and the key thrown away.

As Peter Brimelow said, if the Jews have the Anti-Defamation League, and the Hispanics La Raza, why can’t whites have an organization to stop them from being marginalized and beleaguered? The trouble is, they don’t. Richard Spencer’s followers are about 300 souls, which in a way makes me laugh. I had 450 people come to my Collapse of Communism Celebration at the Savoy 25 years ago, and at a moment’s notice. Stop crying wolf, you old hag.
