Straight But Not Narrow Nationalism: Gays, Women & The Manosphere
Greg Johnson is Editor-in-Chief of Counter Currents. He is the author of "Confessions of a Reluctant Hater," "New Right vs. Old Right," and the newly published “Truth, Justice, & a Nice White Country.”
Greg is with us to address the wave of “gay panic” that has recently swept through the Alt Right scene, along with the static surrounding the role of women and the legitimacy of the manosphere within the Nationalist movement. We discuss accusations that men are overrepresented in the Alt Right and implications that the involvement of more women is needed to dispel the gay rumor. Then, we look at the manosphere-type jerks that fuel the irrelevancy of this feminist blame game by denigrating the women who are actually adding value to the cause with solid contributions. Greg expands upon his stance that White Nationalism should be “straight, but not narrow,” pointing out that upholding the biological norms of sexual differentiation and the heterosexual family includes respecting people who may deviate from the standards, yet stand true to the policies of racial integrity. We also get into the transgender phenomenon, homophobia, the Christian notion of original sin, marriage ethics, declining White birth rates, and the feminization of heterosexual men. Greg speaks to the morally corrupt credos of the manosphere, and why women are attracted to the “dark triad traits” of narcissism, Machiavellianism, and sociopathy. Further, we consider how actualizing the capacity for excellence within society involves being realistic about shameful behavior and nihilistic traits that undermine healthy norms. Our conversation rounds off with a look at the main political absolutes of White advocacy and what it means to be an authentic vanguardist.
