Jewish author claims to be part of the alt-right, advocates 'cultural nationalism'
The alt-right has gone mainstream.
This isn't to imply that the masses are all reading Radix Journal and listening to Red Ice, of course. Rather, the recent media frenzy over the alt-right has ensured that even the most politically unconscious are becoming familiar with our movement.
While it can be said that there is no such thing as bad PR, we must keep in mind that the term "alt-right" is in danger of being coopted. The label is appealing to an array of groups with differing interests. As such, we – the "real" alt-right that espouses racial nationalism and unapologetically discusses Jewish subversion – must adamantly oppose those who attempt to derail our movement with notions of civic or cultural nationalism.
A recent article in the Forward (formerly known as the Jewish Daily Forward) bears the rather alarming title "I'm a Jew, and I'm a Member of the Alt-Right."
In this article, the author, Joshua Seidel, actually raises a number of decent points.
For example, in response to this Tweet by Ricky Vaughn, Mr. Seidel writes:
Is “Ricky” wrong? Does this dynamic indeed exist in our community? Are Jewish people not overrepresented in this great western push for “diversity”? Most Jews would call Ricky anti-Semitic for saying this, while I’d simply call it the truth.
Acknowledging the Jewish double-standard – multiculturalism for thee but not for me – is actually quite significant, especially in an explicitly Jewish publication.
Mr. Seidel also offers a thoughtful observation regarding Jewish condemnation of "white privilege":
I sometimes wonder what Jews who enthusiastically go on about “white privilege” think the endgame is. They seem to think this concept will serve to shut the mouths of middle and working class whites in flyover country, while liberal Jews hold the clipboards and direct victorious POC in a dismantling of “whiteness.” Privileges will be checked, and all will be well in the world. I don’t see it.
In light of such comments, one might be tempted to believe that the author is an ally to our cause.
That, however, is simply not the case.
On Twitter, Mr. Seidel claimed that no race has an "ultimate claim" on America, and that "cultural nationalism" is the law of the land:
What the author ignores is that that America was clearly intended to be a country for White people. Moreover, America was roughly 90% White until the ill-fated Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. I don't think America needs to be 100% white, but it does need an overwhelming White majority.
Someone with a Jewish identity will always see the world through a Jewish lens. And in a conflict between his ethnic group and another, he will almost always take his own side. Seeing as how he is not White, he will never explicitly advocate for White interests, and will attempt to pervert the alt-right's message to suit his own ends.
Therein lies the issue with accepting Jews into the alt-right.
