Our epic struggle to survive is well-chronicled by a leftist infiltrator who has published his spy tale in the New York Times. Although this story was published in the Times, its not fake news. Alt-light figures like MILO, Paul Joseph Watson, and Cernovich are promoted over the alt-right by the author, but to a large degree the alt-right is accurately characterized.
Ann Coulter’s comment above shouldn’t be taken literally. I’m not FBI. You’re not FBI. The FBI should be putting Crooked Hillary in prison and not be infiltrating a peaceful movement that eschews violence.
Overall, I think what was intended to be a smear job on the alt-right will increase curiosity about the movement.
Last September, Patrik Hermansson, a 25-year-old graduate student from Sweden, went undercover in the world of the extreme right. Posing as a student writing a thesis about the suppression of right-wing speech, he traveled from London to New York to Charlottesville, Va. — and into the heart of a dangerous movement that is experiencing a profound rejuvenation.
Mr. Hermansson, who was sent undercover by the British anti-racist watchdog group Hope Not Hate, spent months insinuating himself into the alt-right, using his Swedish nationality (many neo-Nazis are obsessed with Sweden because of its “Nordic” heritage) as a way in. It wasn’t always easy. “You want to punch them in the face,” he told me of the people he met undercover. “You want to scream and do whatever — leave. But you can’t do any of those things. You have to sit and smile.”
