Based College Coed Goes Viral by Strolling Across Campus with AR-10 Slung Over Shoulder

USA Today

A woman’s photos celebrating her recent graduation from Kent State University have stirred up a social media uproar thanks to the unusual accessory she chose for the occasion — a high-powered, semi-automatic rifle.

Kaitlin Bennett, 22, wanted to make a statement after graduating so she shared pictures of herself on campus with an AR-10 slung over her shoulder and holding a graduation cap emblazoned with the words “come and take it.”

That Nice Nazi Next Door Featured by NY Times Has Been FIRED Along with Wife and Family

TONY HOVATOR, WIFE, BROTHER-IN-LAW ALL FIRED. FORCED TO MOVE.

If you’re ever tempted to self-dox and reveal your true identity on the Internet, don’t.

MSN

A Nazi sympathizer who was profiled recently in The New York Times and his wife and brother-in-law have lost their jobs, after the article prompted an outpouring of hostility to the restaurant that employed them, both he and the restaurant said.

The Times article depicted Tony Hovater, 29, as an otherwise unremarkable person who voices “casually approving remarks about Hitler, disdain for democracy and belief that the races are better off separate.” He is active in a group called the Traditionalist Workers Party; organizations that track extremist groups have called it a hate group, allied with neo-Nazis, and call its views white supremacist, a label it rejects.

Mr. Hovater, his wife, Maria, and her brother had worked at 571 Grill and Draft House, near their home in New Carlisle, Ohio, a suburb of Dayton. Mr. Hovater worked at the restaurant as a part-time cook for a little over a year, according to a manager there.

Though the Times article did not mention the restaurant — Mr. Hovater had identified himself as a welder by trade — people appalled by his views learned that he worked there and began calling and leaving online messages.

The manager, who asked that his name not be used out of fear for his safety, said that there were dozens of angry, crude and threatening messages and that employees were scared.

In a brief telephone interview, Mr. Hovater said, “they decided to can me.” In a text message exchange, Mr. Hovater added, “we’re moving because of safety reasons.”

The restaurant gave a slightly different account in a statement it released on Wednesday, saying that because of the threats, he “suggested that we release him from employment.”

Supporters have contributed more than $6,000 to the Hovaters through a site that caters to extremists on the right.

The (((Deep State))) allows its army of Jews, Negros, and white race traitors to do its dirty work. There’s no need to arrest and ship Tony off to a Gulag for holding the wrong political views. Just get him fired.

Remember that he’s a cat lover? I hope his cats are taken care of as he’s forced to adopt to a life of homelessness and permanent joblessness.

The Guardian Does a Hatchet Job on the Alt-Right, Portraying White Males as Violent Monsters

IS THIS PROPAGANDA DANGEROUS?

The excerpt below was taken from the middle of a Guardian article that purports to prove that “alt-America” is filled with dangerous white male psychopaths.

Extrapolating from a few instances, such as Dylann Roof’s church shootings, to generalization, the Guardian mixes truth with speculation about who and what the alt-right (race realists, White Nationalists, White identitarians, and even plain vanilla conservatives and libertarians) is and what it represents.

The Guardian says the alt-right is a threat to the existence of innocent humanity. That’s what I call a smear job.

H/T to Flanders for leaving a link to this piece.

Excerpt from The Guardian

In American public life today there is an alternative dimension, a mental space beyond fact or logic, where the rules of evidence are replaced by paranoia. It is a space that has been opened up and fortified in no small part by rightwing media, and that has proven fertile ground for domestic terrorism.

Welcome to Alt-America.

Alt-America is an alternative universe that has a powerful resemblance to our own, except that it’s a completely different America, the nation its residents have concocted and reconfigured in their imaginations. In this other America, suppositions take the place of facts, and conspiracy theories, often pedalled by media outlets from Infowars to Fox News, become concrete realities. Its citizens live alongside us in our universe, but their perception of that universe places them in a different world altogether, one scarcely recognizable to those outside it.

Among other pathologies, many Alt-Americans freely fantasize, in print and on YouTube, about their desire to execute liberals, terrorists, “race mixers,” and other traitors. I call this desire eliminationism – a politics, and its accompanying rhetoric, whose goal is to excise whole segments of the population in the name of making it “healthy.”

This mindset is a common feature of authoritarianism. The Holocaust was a particularly horrifying case of eliminationist genocide perpetrated by an authoritarian regime. Eliminationist rhetoric lays the groundwork by dehumanizing, using the kind of talk that reduces human beings to vermin and diseases, such as when you hear immigrants described as “rats in a granary,” or Muslims as “a cancer” – beings fit primarily for elimination. The rhetoric gives tacit or explicit permission for the final essence, violent acts, beginning with hate crimes and escalating into mass roundups and genocide.

One of Alt-America’s most powerful and abiding effects is to displace people from a sense of concrete reality by putting them in an epistemological bubble that insulates them from facts, logic, and reason. From within this kind of bubble, objectifying other people, rendering those outside the bubble as the Other, and then demonizing them, is almost inevitable. Once other people are conceptualized this way, inflicting violence not only becomes simple but in fact may even appear to be necessary. Certainly, that is how they rationalize it.

This is the point at which Alt-America represents a real danger to American democratic institutions, threatening to displace them with a crude and frightening authoritarianism, enforced by state-sanctioned vigilantism.

They had to work in so-called Holocaust denial and they did. The traditional left is so predictable. The unspoken implication is that if you are a skeptic about any official government story, then you’re a nut job.

If we’re so dangerous, then give us our own country so that liberals can live separate and apart from us. Just because people are paranoid doesn’t mean that they don’t have reason to be so.

Under Attack: New York Times Defends Story About Nice White Nationalist Cat Lover Tony Hovator

TONY HOVATOR. JUST YOUR AVERAGE NAZI NEXT DOOR.

When I ran the New York Times condensation I did about Tony Hovator on Sunday, I mentioned that I thought people would take it as positive toward White Nationalism.

Well, I was right.

The New York Times is defending the piece on Tony, trying to make it clear that it wasn’t intended to be positive toward White Nationalism.

Yahoo

In the wake of widespread backlash against its profile of a Nazi sympathizer, The New York Times said on Sunday it regrets offending readers and defended elements of the story criticized as normalizing white extremism.

“Our reporter and his editors agonized over the tone and content of the article,” Times national editor Marc Lacey wrote in a response to readers. “The point of the story was not to normalize anything but to describe the degree to which hate and extremism have become far more normal in American life than many of us want to think.”

The story, which ran on Saturday, spotlighted white supremacist Tony Hovater of New Carlisle, Ohio. The portrait of the “Nazi sympathizer next door” and his hatred for Jews, admiration for Adolf Hitler and belief in racial segregation is told against the backdrop of him cooking pasta at home, contemplating his honeymoon and enjoying “Seinfeld” ― all details critics say inadvertently normalized people like Hovater.

In its response, the Times said some saw the value in using those details to show how easy it is for the average American to adopt such radical views. “People mad about this article want to believe that Nazis are monsters we cannot relate to,” the Times quoted from Mother Jones reporter Shane Bauer’s tweet.

The point of the story was not to normalize anything but to describe the degree to which hate and extremism have become far more normal in American life than many of us want to think. New York Times national editor Marc Lacey

Many critics of the profile agreed with that sentiment, but also said the Times went wrong by failing to address why and how Hovater developed his extreme beliefs.

Richard Fausset, the profile’s author, admitted in a followup piece Saturday that those unasked questions about Hovater were “a hole at the heart of [his] story.” When a Times editor told him that, in a first draft, those questions “had not been sufficiently addressed,” Fausset returned for more reporting on Hovater in search of answers, but came up empty.

“I beat myself up about all of this for a while, until I decided that the unfilled hole would have to serve as both feature and defect,” Fausset wrote. The Times’ response on Sunday, however, does not directly address this shortcoming or its decision to publish the story despite it.

“We recognize that people can disagree on how best to tell a disagreeable story,” the Times said in conclusion. “What we think is indisputable, though, is the need to shed more light, not less, on the most extreme corners of American life and the people who inhabit them. That’s what the story, however imperfectly, tried to do.”

The Times did say it erred in judgment by including in the profile a link to a site that sells swastika armbands.

“This was intended to show the darker reality beyond the anodyne language of the website. But we saw the criticism, agreed and removed the link.”

Commenter Bill left this at Yahoo, which is some nice pushback, even if it doesn’t mention Jews:

What about the black nurses who laughed (and neglected) the white WW2 veteran who just died in a nursing home (it’s on video)? What about the black “Night Nurse” who said that white women are raising “killers and rapists” on her twitter account? Are we going to see stories profiling that absolute disdain that many blacks have for the white race, simply because they are white (and because it’s easier to point the finger at an “oppressor” that is keeping you down rather than to look in the mirror and see the reality is that you are a loser in life)? Probably not!

NY Times Interviews “A Voice of Hate in America’s Heartland”

TONY HOVATOR. JUST A NORMAL GUY AWAKENED TO THE TRUTH THAT DEMOCRACY DOESN’T WORK.

The New York Times has published an article featuring a White Nationalist young man, the very articulate Tony Hovater, whose life is boringly normal. While he has no dog, he does have cats and a new bride, who shares his belief in White Nationalism.

On the surface, the Times paints a sympathetic picture of Tony. But I’m willing to bet that the cues in the article would leave most white people thinking of Tony as a loser. By that psyop, the Times surely hopes to discourage others in his generation from joining the movement.

I’ve taken the 2,400 word article and condensed it to 1,600 words. I’ve also omitted two of the pictures from this condensation. A reminder: The NY Times allows you to read 10 free articles a month. After that you hit a paywall.

New York Times

HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio —

In Ohio, amid the row crops and rolling hills, the Olive Gardens and Steak ’n Shakes, Mr. Hovater’s presence can make hardly a ripple. He is the Nazi sympathizer next door, polite and low-key at a time the old boundaries of accepted political activity can seem alarmingly in flux. Most Americans would be disgusted and baffled by his casually approving remarks about Hitler, disdain for democracy and belief that the races are better off separate. But his tattoos are innocuous pop-culture references: a slice of cherry pie adorns one arm, a homage to the TV show “Twin Peaks.” He says he prefers to spread the gospel of white nationalism with satire. He is a big “Seinfeld” fan.

“I guess it seems weird when talking about these type of things,” he says. “You know, I’m coming at it in a mid-90s, Jewish, New York, observational-humor way.”

Mr. Hovater, 29, is a welder by trade. He is not a star among the resurgent radical American right so much as a committed foot soldier — an organizer, an occasional podcast guest on a website called Radio Aryan, and a self-described “social media villain,” although, in person, his Midwestern manners would please anyone’s mother. In 2015, he helped start the Traditionalist Worker Party, one of the extreme right-wing groups that marched in Charlottesville, Va., in August, and again at a “White Lives Matter” rally last month in Tennessee. The group’s stated mission is to “fight for the interests of White Americans.’’

Its leaders claim to oppose racism, though the Anti-Defamation League says the group “has participated in white supremacist events all over the country.” On its website, a swastika armband goes for $20.

If the Charlottesville rally came as a shock, with hundreds of white Americans marching in support of ideologies many have long considered too vile, dangerous or stupid to enter the political mainstream, it obscured the fact that some in the small, loosely defined alt-right movement are hoping to make those ideas seem less than shocking for the “normies,” or normal people, that its sympathizers have tended to mock online.

And to go from mocking to wooing, the movement will be looking to make use of people like the Hovaters and their trappings of normie life — their fondness for National Public Radio, their four cats, their bridal registry.

“We need to have more families. We need to be able to just be normal,” said Matthew Heimbach, the leader of the Traditionalist Worker Party, in a podcast conversation with Mr. Hovater. Why, he asked self-mockingly, were so many followers “abnormal”?

Mr. Hovater replied: “I mean honestly, it takes people with, like, sort of an odd view of life, at first, to come this way. Because most people are pacified really easy, you know. Like, here’s some money, here’s a nice TV, go watch your sports, you know?”

He added: “The fact that we’re seeing more and more normal people come is because things have gotten so bad. And if they keep getting worse, we’ll keep getting more, just, normal people.”

The Alt-Right and a Strategy for Victory

ECONOMIST HANS-HERMANN HOPPE, AUTHOR OF THIS PIECE.

The following is a 549 word excerpt from a magnificent 7,200 word article on libertarianism, the alt-right, and the creation of the kind of country we want.

The ten numbered points in the excerpt are explained in the source article.

If I had a printer, I’d print the whole article out and tape it to my bathroom mirror to reread a little every morning.

Unz.com

In fact, it has been correctly noted that the Alt-Right is far more united by what it is against than what it is for. It is against, and indeed it hates with a passion, the elites in control of the State, the MSM and academia.

Why? Because they all promote social degeneracy and pathology. Thus, they promote, and the Alt-Right vigorously opposes, egalitarianism, Affirmative Action (aka “non-discrimination”), multiculturalism, and “free” mass immigration as a means of bringing multiculturalism about.

As well, the Alt-Right loathes everything smacking of Cultural Marxism o r Gramsciism and all “Political Correctness” and, strategically wise, it shrugs off, without any apology whatsoever, all accusations of being racist, sexist, elitist, supremacist, homophobe, xenophobe, etc., etc.

…Alt-Righters insist that life is also about strife, hate, struggle and fight, not just between individuals but also among various groups of people acting in concert. “Millennial Woes” (Colin Robertson) has thus aptly summarized the Alt-Right:

“Equality is bullshit. Hierarchy is essential. The races are different. The sexes are different. Morality matters and degeneracy is real. All cultures are not equal and we are not obligated to think they are. Man is a fallen creature and there is more to life than hollow materialism. Finally, the white race matters, and civilization is precious. This is the Alt-Right.”

And moreover: Just as a libertarian order must always be on guard against “bad” (even if non-aggressive) neighbors by means of social ostracism, i.e., by a common “you are not welcome here” culture, so, and indeed even more vigilantly so, must it be guarded against neighbors who openly advocate communism, socialism, syndicalism or democracy in any shape or form. They, in thereby posing an open threat to all private property and property owners, must not only be shunned, but they must, to use a by now somewhat famous Hoppe-meme, be “physically removed,” if need be by violence, and forced to leave for other pastures.

Not to do so inevitably leads to—well, communism, socialism, syndicalism or democracy and hence, the very opposite of a libertarian social order.

One : Stop mass immigration.

Two: Stop attacking, killing and bombing people in foreign countries.

Three: Defund the ruling elites and its intellectual bodyguards.

Four: End the Fed and all central banks.

Five: Abolish all “Affirmative Action” and “non-discrimination” laws and regulations.

Six: Crush the “Anti-Fascist” Mob.

Seven: Crush the street criminals and gangs

Eight: Get rid of all welfare parasites and bums.

Nine: Get the State out of education.

Ten: Don’t put your trust in politics or political parties.

Claim: Thank Breitbart and MILO for Making White Nationalism and Nazis Mainstream (and a Jewish(?) Billionaire)

MILO IN HIS GLORY DAYS.

Buzzfeed claims to have gotten its hands on some Breitbart documents, emails I believe, that it says show the alt-news site to be part of some sort of nefarious plot headed by Steve Bannon and using a variety of alt-right figures to propagandize the country toward accepting white nationalism.

The thousand word excerpt I have here is probably only 10 percent of the entire article. It’s interesting to see how Breitbart News works and how it’s not allowed there to criticize Jews.

The billionaire Mercer family controls Breitbart through its investing in the company. I suspect they fund Jared Taylor too.

I believe the Mercers may be Jews, but I can’t say that definitively. You can read more at 8 chan about that issue.

Excerpt from Buzzfeed

These new emails and documents, however, clearly show that Breitbart does more than tolerate the most hate-filled, racist voices of the alt-right. It thrives on them, fueling and being fueled by some of the most toxic beliefs on the political spectrum — and clearing the way for them to enter the American mainstream.

It’s a relationship illustrated most starkly by a previously unreleased April 2016 video in which Yiannopoulos sings “America the Beautiful” in a Dallas karaoke bar as admirers, including the white nationalist Richard Spencer, raise their arms in Nazi salutes.

These documents chart the Breitbart alt-right universe. They reveal how the website — and, in particular, Yiannopoulos — links the Mercer family, the billionaires who fund Breitbart, to underpaid trolls who fill it with provocative content, and to extremists striving to create a white ethnostate.

They capture what Bannon calls his “killing machine” in action, as it dredges up the resentments of people around the world, sifts through these grievances for ideas and content, and propels them from the unsavory parts of the internet up to TrumpWorld, collecting advertisers’ checks all along the way.

And the cache of emails — some of the most newsworthy of which BuzzFeed News is now making public — expose the extent to which this machine depended on Yiannopoulos, who channeled voices both inside and outside the establishment into a clear narrative about the threat liberal discourse posed to America. The emails tell the story of Steve Bannon’s grand plan for Yiannopoulos, whom the Breitbart executive chairman transformed from a charismatic young editor into a conservative media star capable of magnetizing a new generation of reactionary anger. Often, the documents reveal, this anger came from a legion of secret sympathizers in Silicon Valley, Hollywood, academia, suburbia, and everywhere in between.

“I have said in the past that I find humor in breaking taboos and laughing at things that people tell me are forbidden to joke about,” Yiannopoulos wrote in a statement to BuzzFeed News. “But everyone who knows me also knows I’m not a racist. As someone of Jewish ancestry, I of course condemn racism in the strongest possible terms. I have stopped making jokes on these matters because I do not want any confusion on this subject. I disavow Richard Spencer and his entire sorry band of idiots. I have been and am a steadfast supporter of Jews and Israel. I disavow white nationalism and I disavow racism and I always have.”

As we’ve said before here, MILO is out for MILO. I’m not sure even he knows what he really believes. I hope all of those white youths who invested so much faith in MILO aren’t discouraged. You picked the wrong guy. It’s no big deal.
