The term ‘alt-right’ or ‘Alternative Right’ is just a fancy shmancy term coined by Richard Spencer for Neo-Nazis, white nationalists, white supremacists, white racists, etc., pretty much any (white) person who identifies with the term.
Composed of mostly young, paranoid, insecure, white male sociopaths, the alt-right firmly believes that white genocide is in progress due – in part – to multiculturalism and political correctness. Since they feel threatened that their place as the dominant species is being taken away from them, they’ve adapted a culture of familiar, but nonetheless disturbing, hatred. Here are a list of things that they fear and hate the most (in no particular order):
To put it simply, the alt-right thinks women should stay in the home barefoot, naked, pregnant and in the kitchen and not hold jobs, vote or run for office. They want things to be like it was before feminism was born when women were seen and not heard. But now that they have more freedoms, the alt-right men’s clubalt-right men’s club dreads that they’re being oppressed while women are gaining more privileges.
No different than other racist groups, the alt-right believes the white race is the most superior. Seeing other groups of people in what they declare are white ethnocentric spaces – such as entire countries – obtaining careers and(or), fighting white supremacy or involved in crimes where white people are victims fuels their fear of the disappearance of the whiteness.
Fitting in with their disdain for multiculturalism, the alt-right seems to have this imagined vendetta towards Black Lives Matter (BLM). Since most of them are cop supporters and conspiracy theorists, they think the movement is against both police and white people with no evidence to support their presupposition. It’s so strong, they willingly pin certain crimes on the movement if the victims are cops and(or) whites even though there’s no connection with BLM.
Islam and Muslims
To put it simply, all Muslims are terrorists and all terrorists are Muslims…and BLM. They, along with immigrants, must be kept out of America, a nation the alt-right declares as a white Christian nation.
While the hatred is not quite as cut-and-dry as the previous subjects as some members of the white nationalist movement have courted the gays to join their causes. But, in large part, they simply detest the LGBQT community. They see their lifestyle as anything but normal, something to be feared and – of course – loathed upon.
A conservative that is deemed ‘weak’ is labeled a ‘cuck’ or ‘cuckservative’. In the minds of the alt-right, any conservative that goes against the extremist values of the movement is unfaithful and is therefore emasculated.
No explanation needed. They hate them for being the polar opposites of everything they stand for.
The following was written by Facebook member Che Brandes-Tuka. It contains some information as to who the Orlando shooter Omar Mateen was.
He was a child of immigrants, born and raised in the United States.
He pledged allegiance to Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda AND ISIS, 3 organizations that are de facto at war with each other, showing he was ignorant about all 3, let alone politics in the Middle East in general.
He knew practically nothing about Islam and according to his wife, father and community he was not religious in the slightest.
He struggled with his toxic masculinity, had an alcohol problem and beat up his wife for which he was never charged.
He was racist towards Blacks, Latinos and other minorities and in the shooting killed predominantly queer people of color.
Despite his own alleged queer inclinations, he was a homophobe in a country where still 1 in 5 LGBTQ people are victims of hate crimes and there are more than a 100 anti-LGBTQ bills (from anti-gay marriage to bathroom bills) pending in dozens of states.
He idolized the NYPD, one of the country’s most well-known and cherished institutions that has an army bigger than ISIS, is known to indiscriminately, unwarrantedly and disproportionally spy on Muslims and which engages in systematic violence against Blacks, Latinos and other minorities.
He beat juveniles in detention centers over the head for a living as he worked for and got his training from the private security firm G4S, which is not only one of the foremost stakeholders in the Prison–industrial complex, but is also invested in mass deportations as it runs immigration detention centers and participates in the occupation of Palestine, training other mass killers in Israel to target and imprison Palestinians.
He staged a mass shooting in a country that has seen a 1,000 mass shootings in the last 1,200 days.
So basically he was ignorant, self-conflicted, racist, sexist, homophobe, had a sick admiration for authority and was obsessed with guns and violence, eventually acting upon all of that.
The nightclub known as ‘Pulse’ has been a hangout for the LGBT community in Orlando, Florida. Early Sunday morning around 2 a.m. EST during a party, a shooting occurred at the nightclub. The shooter was identified as Omar Mateen who, according to the New York Times, pledged allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call prior to the attacks.
Over a hundred people were shot. At first, the murder count was reported as high as 20, but subsequent reports reported that at least 49 people were killed.
Mateen held up the club with a dozen hostages. Hundreds of party goers managed to escape unharmed.
At about 5 a.m., a SWAT team raided the nightclub. Mateen was eventually killed by police.
At this time, the mainstream media and law enforcement declared the massacre as a terrorist attack. However, many are considering to also charge this as a hate crime.
The news media have all declared this as the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
Because the shooting was conducted by someone of Middle Eastern background with a radical Muslim faith with confessed ties to an Islamic state, the Middle Eastern and Muslim communities will – if not already – will be held responsible for this individual’s crime. Islam will, as usual, be considered as a violent religion. There will be politicians and evangelical Christians who will condemn a religion of millions for this one terrible act.
Meanwhile, there’s an outpouring of sympathy for the LGBT community of Orlando, probably for LGBT communities nationwide. Yet, prior to the massacre, homophobia was steadily high, especially in states like North Carolina with their recent anti-LGBT law. Sadly but predictably, there will be people who claim Christian heritage that will take pleasure in this tragedy, praising God for the deaths of innocent people whom they declare as ‘abominations’.
However, the kinder members of faith will ask us to pray for the families and friends of those murdered and injured.
Lastly, there will be a brief discussion on gun laws. But there won’t likely be any drastic changes to those laws. Another win for the NRA and right wing gun nuts.
Oh, and conservatives will blame President Obama for this.
The United States leads the world in mass shootings. And after each mass shooting the nation has learned nothing, because it refuses to acknowledge its issues. Intolerance and hatred continues to manifest, violence still rules over life itself and those who will take advantage and capitalize of another mass shooting will triumph again.
I usually wish notable and famous celebrities and activists to rest in peace whenever there’s news of their passing. I usually do that, but I won’t for the deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia who was recently found dead in San Antonio, Texas.
Some people would consider it heartless not to wish the dead to sleep in peace. Some people would consider it inhumane and borderline evil to hope that people like Scalia would burn in hell wearing gasoline underwear. I probably wouldn’t go that far. Probably. But the former Supreme Court Justice hasn’t been known to show respect and support to those who weren’t white, straight and male.
Recently, not long before his death, Scalia made a comment about black college students when observing the case of Abigail Fisher, the white college woman who was complaining how she didn’t get into her dream university because she was white and reverse racism and affirmative action and all that white fragility jazz:
“There are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less-advanced school, a slower-track school where they do well.
One of the briefs pointed out that most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas. They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re being pushed ahead in classes that are too fast for them.”
Scalia pretty much said that black students are not able to keep up in most colleges and should fair better in “lesser schools”. If that isn’t racist shit that a self-proclaimed race realist would say, I don’t know what is. But, that is what Scalia believed.
He’s not too well-loved in feminist circles either. A few years ago, Scalia said that the equal protection clause in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution does not protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender. In other words, women don’t have protection against being discriminated against, because it’s not in the Constitution:
“In 1868, when the 39th Congress was debating and ultimately proposing the 14th Amendment, I don’t think anybody would have thought that equal protection applied to sex discrimination, or certainly not to sexual orientation. So does that mean that we’ve gone off in error by applying the 14th Amendment to both?
Yes, yes. Sorry, to tell you that. … But, you know, if indeed the current society has come to different views, that’s fine. You do not need the Constitution to reflect the wishes of the current society. Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t. Nobody ever thought that that’s what it meant. Nobody ever voted for that. If the current society wants to outlaw discrimination by sex, hey we have things called legislatures, and they enact things called laws. You don’t need a constitution to keep things up-to-date. All you need is a legislature and a ballot box…”
So basically, not only is it not unconstitutional to discriminate based on sex, but if that’s what the people want to do, it can be done through congressional means. Seriously?
Let’s not overlook Scalia’s homophobia. Like the conservative he was, he believed that homosexuality is immoral like…murder and bestiality? When asked by a gay college student at Princeton University why he made the comparison, this was his reply:
“If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?”
I’ll just leave it right there. It doesn’t make sense no matter how you examine it. But to Scalia, it makes perfect “sense”. Being an LGBT is like being a murderer or someone into having sex with animals, it’s wrong. Conservatives believe homosexuality to be a sin. Judging by how many of them think, they believe it’s a crime worse than murder. Why? Because the Bible says so. Interestingly, that that one verse (Leviticus 18:22) in the entire 1000-plus page book is the only one they take extremely seriously.
There are other examples of Scalia’s hatred. (Feel free to google if you want.) But I think you pretty much get the idea. Surely, Republicans are upset that one of their favorite Justices have passed on, and are scurrying around looking for another to take his place doing whatever it takes to put another conservative justice in the judicial seat of power. In the meantime, I pass on mourning the loss of this man, a man against the humanity and progress of others. Rest in piss, Antonin Scalia.

For a group of people that supposedly love the gays so damn much, so-called liberal white folks sure have a funny ass way of showing it. Recently, a college player by the name of Michael Sam came out as gay saying that he wants to change the face of the NFL. Even while pretending to sing Mr. Sam praises the same way they did for Jason Collins, it is very evident that the white media elite is doing it in the most reluctant way imaginable.
They love their racism more than they love a cause that they put on a good show to care about. So, don’t kid yourself when they claim to be cheerleaders for Mr. Sam or Mr. Collins or even NBA player John Amechi. White people in the media only give a shit about gays because it’s a predominantly white community. And it’s the only real place where they feel even a slight sense of discrimination. That’s not to say that gay white people have it just as rough as gay people of color. Far from it. In fact, much of the hostility those who are gay and POC get is from white people who should be on their side.
I remember one commenter on another website saying he overheard a snobby, older, white male queen say that he wouldn’t go to a certain gay pride parade. Apparently he felt that it had become too ‘ghetto’. That must be a code word for “there were too many darkies in attendance”. So, that ruined it for him.
I have also read several complaints on the message boards from black people who said that they were treated rudely at many gay pride rallies, something that doesn’t surprise me in the least. Yet, somehow magically in the eyes of the white liberal media, we are always painted as the bad guy. Not one day passes over the issue of gay rights where some bleeding heart hypocrite will bitch and whine about those evil black preachers. How interesting that despite the tyrannical cabal of black church folks keeping poor gay whitey down, white people that are gay flourish both economically and socially.
Being gay and black is seen as wrong, particularly by those very same whites who preach a fondness for gay people. I was watching a hatchetjob tabloid show called “Hollywood Scandals” where they completely and utterly berated the late and great Whitney Houston for an alleged romance with her female friend Robin. They had the nerve to state that Whitney was targeted with gay rumors so much because she never came right out and confirmed or denied it.
HORSESHIT! They hated her because she was a Negress that didn’t know her place well enough and had to be reminded of it in the most hateful malicious way ever. She shouldn’t have had to explain to those gossipy assholes her relationship with that woman at all whatsoever. It was none of their business and they have never spent one second using rumors of homosexuality to trash and malign a white person.
A few months ago, the head of the popular show “Duck Dynasty” clan Phil Robertson made some very hash comments condemning the gay lifestyle. As usual, the warriors of whiteness in the media gave him a proverbial slap on the wrist.
Asshole in charge and host of “TMZ” Harvey Levin had the absolute gall to defend Robertson’s rhetoric by saying that he has freedom of speech. It’s a far cry from what Levin said when San Francisco 49ers running back Chris Culver remarked that he and other players would never want a gay man in their locker room or on their team. Culver is black so it’s not shocking that he gets criticized by white people who put their whiteness above all else. What Culver said is no more prejudiced that what Robertson said. But because one is considered inferior, he’s not allowed to say anything that would appear discriminatory to whites.
The rush to beat up on any black person not down with the gays is more about teaching Negroes that we can’t say anything to make black folks feel dominant in any way to white people. It’s why white male celebrities can say vicious, stupid and vile things about gay people but the media will be damned if they utter one little peep that’s negative. Black males who come out are deluding themselves if they think any criticism they face is predominantly based on being a homosexual. They hate you because of your skin color, not who you are fucking in the back seat of your Lincoln Navigator.
I also believe that they will get hostility because their revelation flies in the face of the lily white media’s scary black man mindset. Black men can’t be a homosexual and a thug at the same damn time. So, they resent the fact that he will be presented in a way that can’t be anything else but non-threatening.
Seeing how a lot of white males in this country view gay men as naturally weak by default, and by weak I mean he has a delicate feminine personality, it clashes greatly with the ideal that he’s a ni**ger who is prone to violence from birth. Not according to their logic. If he is gay too and not being able to lump him in with those other Negro athletes always up to no good, that must just piss them off to no end.
What I don’t get is how so many black people, especially women ,still believe that the white gay population is an ally to us whatsoever, particularly when they are continuously complaining themselves to the contrary. Do I really need to go there again with the arrogant, racist and self-righteous rant of that little shit Dan Savage?
If you have to keep telling another group of people how thoughtless and selfish their behavior is, it’s because they don’t give a rat’s ass about your feelings. As much as a black man who comes out likes to think that the hierarchy will accept him once they realize he’s not a sexual menace to their daughters, it’s pure absolute bullshit. Black male athletes whether gay or straight are very much the same in the eyes of the media, certainly if they are ever charged with a crime. If Mr. Sam gets a DUI or is accused of something really heinous, he won’t get cut any more slack than a black man who isn’t gay. Trust me when I say that any show of support he gets from white people will remain very, very temporary. To white males in the public and media he is just another n-word, not an f-word.
I’d heard whisperings about the existence of Kappa Beta Phi, whose members included both incredibly successful financiers (New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Goldman Sachs chairman John Whitehead, hedge-fund billionaire Paul Tudor Jones) and incredibly unsuccessful ones (Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld, Bear Stearns CEO Jimmy Cayne, former New Jersey governor and MF Global flameout Jon Corzine). It was a secret fraternity, founded at the beginning of the Great Depression, that functioned as a sort of one-percenter’s Friars Club. Each year, the group’s dinner features comedy skits, musical acts in drag, and off-color jokes, and its group’s privacy mantra is “What happens at the St. Regis stays at the St. Regis.” For eight decades, it worked. No outsider in living memory had witnessed the entire proceedings firsthand. …
I wasn’t going to be bribed off my story, but I understood their panic. Here, after all, was a group that included many of the executives whose firms had collectively wrecked the global economy in 2008 and 2009. And they were laughing off the entire disaster in private, as if it were a long-forgotten lark. (Or worse, sing about it — one of the last skits of the night was a self-congratulatory parody of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” called “Bailout King.”) These were activities that amounted to a gigantic middle finger to Main Street and that, if made public, could end careers and damage very public reputations. …
The first and most obvious conclusion was that the upper ranks of finance are composed of people who have completely divorced themselves from reality. No self-aware and socially conscious Wall Street executive would have agreed to be part of a group whose tacit mission is to make light of the financial sector’s foibles. Not when those foibles had resulted in real harm to millions of people in the form of foreclosures, wrecked 401(k)s, and a devastating unemployment crisis.
The new law that criminalizes homosexuality is popular among Nigerians. But it shows a failure of our democracy, because the mark of a true democracy is not in the rule of its majority but in the protection of its minority – otherwise mob justice would be considered democratic. The law is also unconstitutional, ambiguous, and a strange priority in a country with so many real problems. Above all else, however, it is unjust. Even if this was not a country of abysmal electricity supply where university graduates are barely literate and people die of easily-treatable causes and Boko Haram commits casual mass murders, this law would still be unjust. We cannot be a just society unless we are able to accommodate benign difference, accept benign difference, live and let live. We may not understand homosexuality, we may find it personally abhorrent but our response cannot be to criminalize it.
Michael B. Jordan, the charismatic young actor from “Fruitvale Station,” has been cast in the reboot of “Fantastic Four,” in the role previously played by Chris Evans. As Evans is now one of the central figures in the Marvel “Avengers” franchise, it’s clearly a star-making role — and one that many fans perceive as white.
It’s common for fans of entertainment franchises to take to Twitter upon the announcement of any casting that deviates from an all-white universe — including, recently, the casting of a young black actress to play a role in “The Hunger Games” that was at the very least coded as black. No matter! White “Hunger Games” readers perceived all the characters as white, and they were really angry they were going to be forced to look at any nonwhite people at the movies. The same thing happened when Idris Elba got a supporting role as a Norse god in “Thor,” and when Samuel L. Jackson played a role that had been white in comics in “The Avengers” franchise.
This is the exact reason why casting minority actors in the sort of big franchises that have built-in audiences is at once difficult and important — fans who have pictured the plot of a novel in their minds, or who have looked at the all-white Fantastic Four on the page, are entitled to be mildly surprised at a casting decision, but self-righteous anger is a bit excessive.
Why don’t they just let me live…I don’t need permission…Make my own decisions…That’s my prerogative.
These are the lyrics from a famous song by Bobby Brown. And it’s the subject for today’s article.
Lately, this weekend actually, I’ve been hearing news about something called the knockout games. News reports explain how wayward youths seek out an individual, attempt to knock him, or her out, and then run. Needless to say, most of the youth involved are black.
Already, I’m seeing white-minded comments appear on black blogs urging the bloggers to write articles or stories about what they perceive is a widespread violent trend. As far as news reports themselves go, such incidents are not enough to be considered epidemic. Unless, if you’re a Fox News disciple. And it certainly not a case of a criminal culture if the perps were white.
Some white commenters who venture into anti-racist blogs and websites know what they’re getting into and do not attempt to troll topics for reasons that don’t add up. However, there are certain ones who deliberate troll their way in to remind the blogger and the regulars that black people are the real problems, not white racism.
Racist trolls seem pissed off that anti-racist blogs don’t discuss the topics they think are more imperative. Usually, those topics consist of white victimization by black savages which – in their minds – are true examples of racism. When they don’t get what they want, they get agitated and continue trolling. The familiar tactics of black crime stats and links to articles of black-on-white crime are sure to get feeding time started.
So, why do they do it? Why go to a blog you know wasn’t made for you and bitch and moan that it doesn’t talk about what you want to discuss. Why don’t they just move the fuck on and find a website that satisfies them? Needless to say, common sense is as foreign to them as courtesy and humility.
My only theory is that it’s white entitlement, white paternalism, or white maternalism is the trolls are females, and – of course – white privilege talking. They feel entitled to invade anti-racist blogs they feel are anti-white, because they see the two as being one and the same.
It’s not unlike European imperialism and colonization. Trolls want to establish colonies in those websites in an attempt to disrupt forums for self-serving reasons the same way European nations invade nations disrupting their ways of life for their own gain.
White paternalism kicks in when white racist trolls feel the need to tell the blogger and the regulars what they should talk about. The blogger has no freedom of choice. The blogger needs to be lectured on what to discuss. So, he or she needs to be schooled on what’s important. To the troll, the blogger is always wrong when it comes to anti-black racism. The real issue is anti-white racism by – you guessed it – blacks.
This is similar with enforcing Europeanism and Americanism into different cultures all over the world. The people must submit or suffer the consequences for the supposed purpose of establishing “civility”.
Trolls never see the blogger or moderator of a website that challenges ways of thinking that are considered dangerous as being capable of making choices on his(her) own. They consider that as a problem and will go out of their way to let them know, even at the risk of ultimately getting banned, if the website doesn’t have a filter.
The privileged are paranoid of losing their place in the world due to the empowerment of the outside groups. Any incident where a privileged person is attack, or felt they were attacked, sends off a signal telling them that oppression against them has now begun, which gives them an excuse to go on the offensive by being offensive.
Sexist and misogynist trolls hate anti-sexist and anti-misogynist activists. They feel that men are the real oppressed group, and women are taking over. Women are standing up against a male dominated world. And certain men think it’s the fall of civilization.
Homophobic trolls detest LGBTQ activists. They feel that heterosexual people are disappearing and – especially for the bible thumping fanatics – are sending this world to hell. As you know, they believe God hates many people, but gays are somehow at the top of His hit list.
And white racist trolls see anti-racism as being anti-white. They are scared as hell of being losing their whiteness. It makes me wonder why they think being white is so damn important, especially if they deny having privileges over other groups.
Anyway, the blogger has the right to discuss whatever he or she feels is important. And those who visit do so on their their own free will. If they stay, cool. If they go, cool.
It’s futile to whine that a blog you chose to visit doesn’t talk about issues you think are more important. It’s sad and almost hilarious to see them cry on and on about it not knowing when to quit. Leaving is always an option, if your ass isn’t banned first. And starting your own blog is possible, free of charge.
To assume that trolls have the mental capacity of a gnat would likely excuse them for their bad behavior. Many of them know what they’re doing, because they still see black folks as beneath them, their slaves who need to behave more civilized (white-like) in order for society to tolerate them.
Sure. By being “respectable”, we will get respect from a group of people who’ve never learned how to respect us in the first place. It’s funny, because for years they want us to change, while they’ve maintained the same white supremacist mentality as their parents, grandparents, great grandparents and ancestors held dear for hundreds of years. Talk about projection.
Bloggers and moderators do what they want to do and discuss what they want to discuss on their own sites, because (duh!) they own and moderate their sites. They, including racist bloggers, don’t have to cater to whoever their blog is not geared towards if they don’t want to. They have the freedom to do so. It’s their prerogative.
Besides, just like trolls like to scream how they have the freedom of speech to say and(or) show the most asshole things imaginable, the blogger has also has the freedom to silence them.
