Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
One of my favorite lulzy internet subculture handles is that of a Reddit communist, “CentristsAreScum”. The name provokes a laugh, but also poses rhetorical questions. Are centrists scum? Is ideological purity and intractability the only way to garner internet superhighway cred? What about in the “real” world of fracturing politics?
The emergence of an “Alt-Center” – a de facto white-nationalist synthesis of leftist and rightist positions – is, as Robert Stark recently discussed with Giovanni Dannato, an inevitability. Stark, HAarlem VEnison, Brandon Adamson, and the nebulous Alt-Left coterie can be viewed as eccentric precursors of this ascendant tendency.
One already hears occasional anecdotes of disaffected Bernie Bros going Alt-Right. Indeed, intellectual darling Slavoj Zizek wrote in November that, “Alt-right Trump supporters and left-wing Bernie Sanders fans should join together to defeat capitalism”. Bernie Bros were, after all, criticized for “rude and often sexist” online behavior not so different from that of anime Nazi trolls.
There is much talk about the ultimate unfeasibility of the Democratic Party’s coalition of the fringes, and, as U.S. News and World Report acknowledged last summer, the Democrats face a “Race Problem” in their midst, with the fissure between the progressive Sandernistas and the establishment Clintonistas being one largely defined by race-based preferences, with minorities going for Clinton in 2016.
Zizek advises on “the left’s strategy in this complex situation”:
While any pact between Sanders and Bannon is excluded for obvious reasons, a key element of the left’s strategy should be to ruthlessly exploit division in the enemy camp and fight for Bannon followers.
To cut a long story short, there is no victory of the left without the broad alliance of all anti-establishment forces. One should never forget that our true enemy is the global capitalist establishment and not the new populist right which is merely a reaction to its impasses.
Rather, a key element in white nationalist strategy should be to ruthlessly exploit division in the leftist camp and fight for Sanders’s followers. To cut a long story short, there is no victory for white nationalism without the broad alliance of all the white anti-establishment forces. One should never forget that our true enemy is the global anti-white establishment and not the new Sandernista left which is merely a reaction to its impasses.
