Jared Taylor has been in the trenches for 20 years laying the intellectual foundations for a white ethnostate. Mr. Taylor has red pilled many of us, including Richard Spencer. He deserves our respect, even if we disagree with him about the Jewish Question.
It takes all kinds to shift the Overton window. Taylor’s “scientific racism” appeals to those who don’t want to go full-blown Nazi by joining Andrew Anglin’s stormer army.
Here he gets reasonably positive press coverage from Britain’s leftist paper.
Excerpt from The Guardian
“We are soldiers in this war,” Jared Taylor told an overwhelmingly male and entirely white audience of around 300 late on Saturday. “And we will win.”
The founder and editor of American Renaissance, once a print magazine and now “the internet’s premier race-realist site”, no longer thinks whites can have America to themselves. But he wants an all-white “ethnostate”, carved out of US territory.
This weekend, American Renaissance held its annual conference at a venue in Montgomery Bell state park, an hour west of Nashville, Tennessee. Attendees and speakers clearly felt a growing confidence. They have seen appreciable growth in membership of established and emerging far-right groups. They have also seen the election as president of Donald Trump.
Speakers at the event addressed subjects including “Race realism and race denialism” and “Has the white man turned the corner?” One considered “The Trump report card – so far”.
When Taylor spoke, his audience was generationally diverse. Some, well into middle age or beyond, had heard it all before. But when he asked who was attending for the first time, the great majority raised their hands.
Many were millennials. Though all attendees wore conference dress code – jacket and tie – more than a few younger men sported the “fashy haircut”, short back and sides with a severe parting, which has become a signature of the so-called alt-right.
Many such young men lined up for selfies with Richard Spencer, the president of the white nationalist National Policy Institute thinktank who has achieved fame since greeting the election result with a cry of “Hail Trump”.
Taylor said such men were flooding to his group because they were “hopping mad”. “These young white guys,” he told the Guardian, “they have been told from infancy that they are the villains of history. And I think that the left has completely overplayed its hand.”
Taylor spoke of war, but acknowledged that he wanted only an ideological battle. Speakers urged the audience not to engage with antifascist protesters gathered outside the venue. One conference attendee nonetheless ended the night, Taylor said, in hospital and under arrest. State police confirmed two arrests on the day.
Organized under the banner “Oppose the Hate”, about 150 protesters spread out from the sidewalk, up a set of stairs and on to a grassy hill overlooking the venue.
While more militant activists picketed the front door and took photos of attendees, on the hill there were speakers and a picnic. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) attended. So did anti-gun groups.
The Rev Brian Merritt, pastor at Renaissance Presbyterian church in Chattanooga, gestured towards the conference centre. “What’s going on in there is sin,” he said. “White supremacy is sin. They’re on the wrong side of justice.”
Groups like American Renaissance were attracted to Tennessee and the south by its politeness and hospitality, he said. But he added: “Well-mannered Christianity is going away. The church is not going to be told every time it stands up for justice that that is politics. That is bullshit. It is not political to stand up for justice, especially under this racist administration.”
The Rev Brian Merritt is a professional protester and anarchist. Read more here. The sneaky Guardian would leave you thinking that a true Christian (Merritt looks like he might be a crypto-Jew) has condemned the right of the white race to exist and prosper free of the undertow that diversity brings. Merritt is scum disguised as a Christian.
