WaPo Writer Asks: “Has the Alt-Right Peaked?”

CHARLOTTESVILLE CLASH.

A balanced story by a young white male WaPo reporter declares the alt-right to be on its deathbed, but not dead yet.

Though the story may be balanced, the real story behind the propaganda blaming the alt-right for a woman’s death is omitted. However, some of the commenters at Richmond.com observed that James Fields was fleeing for his life, not deliberately aiming to plow into a crowd of lefties to kill any of them.

Excerpt from Washington Post via Richmond.com

Eight months after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia ended in the death of a counterprotester, the loose collection of disaffected young white men known as the alt-right is in disarray.

Never give up. The goal of the alt-right is a noble one–to prevent the extermination of the white race.

Left Celebrating Over Arrest of Prominent White Nationalist Matt Heimbach for Domestic Violence as the Alt-Right Self Destructs

The Traditionalist Workers Party is no more. It’s creator, Matt Heimbach, has destroyed the membership list and website, probably to prevent LEOs from having access following his arrest. He’s also declared that he’s leaving the movement, a shocking turn of events for a guy who started out his career in political agitation by forming a white student union at his university several years ago.

Furthermore, according to the Guardian Richard Spencer is also giving up, along with Kyle Bristow. These guys couldn’t take the heat, so they’re getting out of the kitchen.

Sadly, Heimbach’s domestic violence arrest revolves around Heimbach’s alleged sexual relationship with his step-father-in-law’s wife.

Excerpt from The Guardian

Matthew Heimbach, a prominent US neo-nazi, has been arrested on charges of domestic violence, amid a series of events that signal a possible fraying of the modern white nationalist movement in America.

The Guardian gets its talking points from the SPLC. I would NOT call Heimbach a neo-Nazi. That’s a calumny (nice word, look it up).

Richard Spencer et. al. Set to Speak in DETROIT on Sunday

The alt-right is having a meeting this Sunday with Richard Spencer and at least three other alt-right figures speaking. The conference is being held in a secret location within the city of Detroit.

The next day Spencer is scheduled to speak on the campus of Michigan State University. It’s the MSU appearance that may lead to national press coverage if the Antifa shows up.

RICHARD SPENCER LOOKING DAPPER IN SUNGLASSES, SCARF, AND CAP.

I went to the Daily Mail in order to down vote the anti-white comments and up vote the pro-white comments.

Police were on alert Sunday afternoon after a small group of self-proclaimed ‘alt-right’ protesters led by white nationalist Richard Spencer gathered in front of the White House.

The group was met by a group of counter protesters and a heavy police presence.

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.

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.

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.

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.”
