51 thoughts on the ‘Alt Right’.

I spend a LOT of time hunting and destroying the feelings of the Alt-Right. A few thoughts on what I’ve learned about them:

1) They’re weak. Oh, how they are WEAK. They’re DEATHLY scared… of sex, mostly, and all the ways they can’t control it for themselves or others.

2) They are complicit in Russia’s attacks on the West. It’s not that they don’t KNOW Putin is behind so much of their propaganda. It’s that they welcome him. They see him as an ally in overturning the governments and cultures they detest.

3) It’s no accident that we see a massive overlap between racism & sexism. The Alt-Right essentially want to control access to white women, & they couch their hatred of foreigners largely in terms of the danger posed to ‘their’ white women.

4) They will never abandon Donald Trump because, essentially, he is their avatar. He’s as immature, ignorant, racist, sexist, & incompetent as they are. They glory in the way others react to Trump’s “power” because THEY have felt so POWERLESS.

5) The Alt-Right is always guilty of whatever it is they accuse those they hate of. Always. They have no imagination, but assume that the left is just like themselves. They lack the maturity to understand that other humans are actually healthy.

6) The Alt-Right’s railing against ‘globalism’ is hypocritical, considering that the Alt-Right itself is an international movement largely funded and nourished by Russian Military Intelligence. It’s essentially the ComIntern of the 21st Century.

7) The Alt-Right has an odd relationship with postmodernism. They viscerally hate that western culture is malleable (i.e. ‘white genocide’), but glory in the fabrication of complete untruths & the destruction of objective reality (i.e. ‘fake news’).

8) The Alt-Right make poor trolls, because they largely telegraph their own insecurities in their attacks. They’ll tell you, outright, how to hurt them, by calling you the names that they themselves are afraid to be called. They’re easy to defeat.

9) The Alt-Right isn’t new. The crippling feelings that motivate them are older than the United States. Anti-federalists, Know-Nothings, Confederates, and other groups throughout American history have also hated our government and our diversity.

10) They’re stuck in the past. Yes, they want to return to an idealized past of white power that never existed, but they’re also stuck in 2016. They don’t HAVE a plan for 2018 or 2020. They just want to relive Trump’s election victory endlessly.

11) They WILL try to undermine democracy again in 2018 and 2020. Remember, they don’t see liberal or minority votes as legitimate. They DON’T love democracy or America. They love TRIBALISM. Be vigilant about turning out and protecting the vote!

12) The Alt-Right loves to make fun of the ‘safe space,’ but, essentially, that’s what Ethno-Nationalism IS: a giant safe-space for racist white people. Even their preferred media is all a giant safe-space echo chamber to validate their feelings.

13) The Alt-Right isn’t as iconoclastic as they claim to be. Their media personalities, largely on fringe networks, websites, podcasts, & YouTube, want to REPLACE national media, not abolish it. They’re JEALOUS of the ability to influence culture.

14) They don’t have a pragmatic grasp of Realpolitik. Their feelings and vague goals do not take into account the fact that they are complicit in the weakening of the Western democracies, which, of course, is Putin’s real objective in all of this.

15) The Alt-Right’s influence is largely based on the unwillingness of social media platforms, like Twitter, to refuse to be used as tools of Russian espionage. If Twitter wanted to actually be patriotic, it could cripple the Alt-Right overnight.

16) The wailing of Right Wing figures about the First Amendment is disingenuous. The Alt-Right does not care about free speech. What they want is THEIR speech first made legitimate, and secondly, made the SOLE acceptable speech.

17) Never forget that the Alt-Right are, at heart, authoritarians. The fact that they don’t cringe at colluding with a murderous dictator like Putin tells you that they are not defenders of democracy at all, but its enemies. They are DANGEROUS.

18) While Alt-Right figures are easily triggered by the supposed distinctions they see among themselves, essentially their Supremacists would, given free rein, enslave people of color, while their Nationalists would merely violently deport all PoC.

19) We are right to call them traitors. The Alt-Right view liberals and racial/religious minorities as THE existential threat to their hegemony; greater than any geopolitical threat posed by Russia. They have chosen Putin over the US Constitution.

20) They hate that they’re ignorant. It’s why they invent words like ‘libtard’: to deflect their self-consciousness about their lack of education/economic power. They’ll cite YouTube and fringe blogs. They don’t understand or value peer review.

21) Alt-Right media personalities, like those that work at InfoWars and Breitbart, are con artists. They are in this to make money. Watch how often RW twitter accounts ask followers for money/book sales/GoFundMe support/YouTube video likes, etc.

22) Because Alt-Righters are weak and scared, they thrive on outraging those they fear. They like ‘shitposting’ and enjoy watching Trump do the same. Don’t be outraged by them. Mock them. Prey on their fears. Proactively hunt and diminish them.

Today Saw The Death Of Britain First, They Will Not Be Missed.

Britain First, once the great white hype of the UK Islamaphobia Industry died an ignoble death today. And to think that just a few years ago they were being lauded as the most dangerous far right group in the UK. And they were dangerous, their ability to manipulate Social media was second to none, their propaganda machine had a reach of millions, at one time they seemed a credible force after the slow demise of the BNP and EDL. But no more.

When a group, even on the back of the latest London terror attack try to march on the propaganda coup it gifthorsed them, and only attract around 150 people, you know that the party is over.

You can even see the desperation as they frantically cram as many flags into people’s hands that they can possibly hold.

Most fitting was that they were given a glimpse into their future by holding the march jointly with the remnants of the once mighty EDL. The same EDL that a few years ago managed to attract 3000 people to a demo in London. Today they could barely muster 30.

EDL lurch in support of Britain First.

Even Tommeh Waxy-Lemon seemed ashamed to be associated with them. And that on the back of his failure to kickstart Pegida UK.  His new BFF, the Trust Fund kid behind another failing far right media group must be wondering how he backed another loser.

It cannot be ignored that for years Goldy and Waxy have derided each other on social media, one decrying the other as a thug and criminal, the other as rip off ‘Zionist’ shopkeepers. The very fact they thought that together they could put aside their differences to attract hundreds to a demo highlights just how desperate they both are to retain some relevance. And they both failed, spectacularly.

The old guard of the far right are being eclipsed. Dowson and Griffin have run away to Hungary, desperately trying to exploit the discredited ‘Templar’ imagery to scam funds from gullible Americans. The National Front, the BNP, the EDL are just twitching corpses, deluding themselves that they still have a significance.

Britain First are well set down the same path to obscurity. They will continue to bleat away on Facebook not realising that they have ruined their own lives as they milk what little money they can from their dwindling followers. Not that they will disappear entirely, we will still see them for years to come, aging badly, screaming their inanities at an audience that has long since moved on.

But we cannot become complacent, replacements are standing in the wings, ready and waiting. Liberty GB are backed by money, but so far are struggling to gain support (it does not help that one of their main guys was convicted of race hate crimes). Ukip are bankrupt, led by incompetents and losing support in droves.

Which brings us to who, we believe, is the next far right threat. Arron Banks and his Ukip 2.0, the Patriotic Alliance. Britain First may have been groundbreaking in their social media manipulation, but Banks’s LeaveUK has taken this to a whole new level. The Patriotic Alliance will be connected, it will have the backing of fake news supremo’s Breitbart UK via Raheem Kassam. It already has the formidable social media machinery of LeaveUK. It is connected to Mercer, the American billionaire Hedge Fund owner believed to have used his business Cambridge Analytics to manipulate the Brexit result. And through Mercer it is also connected to Alt-Right, White Supremacist Bannon, Trumps Chief Strategist.

Just what shape the patriotic Alliance will take is yet to be seen. It will be anti-immigrant. It will be Islamaphobic. It will be fascism in a suit and tie. Britain is about to go through its most traumatic time since WW2. Brexit is already making people poorer and if/when it fails…well, these are fertile grounds for fascism to take root.

¡No Pasarán!

 

Oh and the Trust Fund bellend…

London Terror Attack – The Far Right Response

On the 22/03/2017 London suffered its first, mass casualty, terror attack in 12 years. Like the majority of the world, we all sat, watching in horror as the events unfolded, worried for the victims, and grieved when the casualty figures came in.

For some though, the events were not tragic, they were an opportunity to further their own  extremist agenda.

These are just some of the responses from the far right:

Britain First, within a few hours they had posted  a Facebook event, a March Against Terrorism.  No words of condolence for the victims, or their families, they just saw an opportunity to cause more problems in a city that will still be reeling from yesterdays events. More policing needed, at a time when the resources will be stretched already

And leader Paul Golding, quickly produced a propaganda video where he blamed everyone for the attacks, except himself and his groups culpability in creating a toxic atmosphere of ‘them and us’, an atmosphere that does more to recruit for Da’esh than Da’esh could ever manage.

We have intentionally not linked to the video, as Britain First have monetized their YouTube account.

Golding must have been devastated when he found out that Abu Izzadeen had been wrongly named and was still in prison.

Tommeh Robinson with his new BFF and videographer could not resist making it all about himself, and how he alone has been correct all these years.

He then just descended into rants, retweets and self promotion, yet, never once showed any empathy for the victims or their families.

LibertyGB just saw an opportunity to attack the London Mayor:

Nigel Farage:

He then used the event to appear on Fox News, promoting Trump’s travel ban:

And NO MENTION WHATSOEVER OF THE VICTIMS

The BNP, reproduced a picture doing the far right rounds of an obviously terrified woman in a hijab, walking past an horrific scene.

And yet somehow forgot to post a picture of a white guy doing exactly the same

More on this can be found here.

The EDL just had to join in of course.

Katy Hopkins was another who saw an opportunity to attack the London Mayor.

And another that used Fox News to further their agenda.

Sadly, we could go on and on here…David Duke posting pictures of the victims with their faces clearly visible, before the police had any chance to inform their relatives. Trump Jnr criticising the London Mayor (a recurring theme throughout social media).

The one thing they all have in common is a blatant disrespect for the victims and their families. To these people, and the random commentators on Facebook etc. the London attack was not a terrible tragedy, it was an opportunity. An opportunity to spread more division, more hate – to further their own extremist agendas. And of course, in many cases, to further line their own pockets

Thankfully, the community that has come under the most attack after the events reacted differently.

You can donate to this cause HERE

A quick addition.
Arron Banks, the man who wants to build Ukip 2.0 (but remember, Brexit was never about racism…).

UKIP Supporters React to the ‘New’ Doctor Who!

You know how it is, a bit of time on your hands, and you decide to troll one of the largest UKIP supporters groups on Facebook. Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who was one of the biggest stories of the week. Who would be the new Doctor? We decided this lovely lady.

And then we decided to drop it into a Ukip supporters group…

It’s a good job we did not tell them that the pic was actually Leslie Jones from the re-make of Ghostbusters, who has already been remorselessly trolled by Milo and the Alt Right.

God knows what would have happened to the Kippers then.

Seriously though, what is wrong with these people? Doctor Who is a show that celebrates multiculturalism. It is about not giving in to anger, hate or bigotry. It is about the British tradition of tolerance and acceptance.

Guess they missed that.

Is Facebook Allowing Racist Gif’s?

Facebook, still the platform of choice for most people, with billions of users. As everyone knows, it can be, and is a cess pit   of racism, misogyny, homophobia, Islamaphobia, Anti-Semitism and pretty much any kind of hate you can think of.

Many different groups which have historically faced discrimination in society, including, but not exclusively,  the, Black, Jewish, Muslim, and LGBT communities. These communities face attack everyday by controversial and harmful content, including hate speech, on social media, Facebook being the prime example. Just go to practically any thread and you will witness hate of some sort.

Facebook, Twitter, Google, have come under increasing pressure from Governments globally to do something about this situation.

“Facebook Inc. said Monday that it would work with the German Justice Ministry to fight xenophobic and racist messages on the social network’s platform, bending to government pressure to clamp down on hate messages against migrants online.”
Washington Post

“German officials are hoping to stem a growing tide of racism and hate speech directed against the migrants online. On Friday, German chancellor Angela Merkel said that social media sites such as Facebook bear some of the responsibility for the spread of racist and xenophobic posts. “When people stir up sedition on social networks using their real name, it’s not only the state that has to act, but also Facebook as a company should do something against these slogans,” Ms. Merkel said in an interview“.
CS Monitor

In 2015, Facebook introduced a new feature to its messaging service, Gifs. These are supplied by third party site Giphly.

But does Facebook police the gifs that the service offers to users? Go to Facebook Messenger, find the Gif option and type in racist. This is what you will find:

Okay, that’s not too bad, a good way to pull up a racist message on Facebook.

Yup, nothing to see here…

Okay, that’s crossing a line, but if it’s the only one, these things happen.

Oh, racial stereotypes…

Oh dear, another one…

Oh….

Another stereotype

Oh, Muslims now.

To be fair, these are not that bad, but they are the top gifs that come up on messenger. Facebook itself is not to blame for them but the host site itself. Is it just banter? A bit of a laugh? Only the recipients of the messages can answer that. And thankfully, for now, it is confined to personal messages.

Britain First supporter sells story to the Sun.

So we saw an article in the Sun saying a Muslim refused to serve a person as selling alcohol was against her religion.


So we had a little look at this mans Facebook page and lo and behold it has the usual hate aimed at Muslims.

 

 

Wonder why he sold the story to the Sun?
(Seems that the lady in question was under 18 and not permitted to sell alcohol without supervision anyway).

Britain First founder’s pro-Trump dabbling

When discussing the election of Donald J Trump as President-elect of the United States, a lot has been made of the “fake news” phenomenon. OneBuzzFeed story in particular, featuring a cottage industry of pro-Trump websites in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia — coincidentally, the same country Melania Trump was born in — was cited by Barack Obama.

In this era of hyped-up McCarthyist accusations, it’s important to realise that the issue here does not just relate to America’s former adversaries. The Patriot News Agency — which arose in July this year, soon after it became obvious Trump would win the Republican nomination — is one such example. Whilst the New York Times notes that many foreign conservative outlets (such as the aforementioned Macedonian sites) have been set up to cash in on the Trump phenomenon, Patriot News had another objective: To get Donald J. Trump to be the next President of the United States.

The organisation is headed by Jim Dowson, described by The Times as an “inveterate agitator” and “the invisible man of Britain’s far right”. Dowson, an anti-abortion activist in Northern Ireland who helped set up the far-right Britain First political organisation. Britain First is such a far-right organisation that following the assassination of Labour MP Jo Cox, some in Parliament have called for the group’s proscription under the Terrorism Act 2000. Dowson himself advocated Britain’s exit from the EU and has expressed admiration for the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, speaking at a conference for far-right political leaders in Russia heralding Putin’s defence of traditional western values. This is presumably due to Russia’s stance on gay rights — Dowson set up his own organisation (the Parent Truth Campaign) opposing sex education and gay rights in 2001.

Dowson made it his mission, according to messages posted on one of his sites, to “spread devastating anti-Clinton, pro-Trump memes and sound bites into sections of the population too disillusioned with politics to have taken any notice of conventional campaigning,” in the same way that Dowson “made deft use of social media … to promote [his] work and convey an impression of mass following”, according to the New York Times

People familiar with Britain First will know that it is mostly known for its spread of repackaged vital memes online using blatantly misleading statistics or using the issue of animal welfare to its own advantage. Many people forwarding these memes are unaware of the origins of these posts, and thus misinformation and disinformation are spread abound. It’s no surprise that Jim Dowson decided he’d try his hand at trumpeting Trump in the US: after all, most people who read the fabricated stories on Facebook — such as the widely-circulated hoax meme that Pope Francis had endorsed Trump — actually believed them.

The fact that a pro-Trump Britain First activist has managed to create a viral conservative news website should be a wake-up call to liberals in the United States. The seeds of “post-truth” politics already existed beforehand, but the voices promoting them were dismissed as marginal, ringe and insignificant. It is imperative that activists within the United States stop squabbling among themselves and think of a populist counter-message to this extreme xenophobic nationalism which seems to be permeating online at the moment. Politics as usual is over, period.

Britain First extremist filmed joining hate-filled vigilante group hunting down asylum seekers in Bulgaria

An anti-Muslim extremist has been filmed joining a hate-filled group hunting down asylum seekers in Bulgaria, the Daily Mirror wrote on 24 October.

Far-right Jim Dowson donned camouflage gear to join the heavily-armed Shipka Bulgarian National Movement stalking migrants who cross the Turkish border.

Dowson, founder of the Britain First group, has made a series of videos begging supporters to send donations to help arm the ragtag militia.
The Scottish Daily Record reports Dowson claims the Turkey-Bulgaria border is the key strategic point to be defended from refugee “invaders” who he claims are seeking to take over the world.

He has also appeared on Russian TV, backing the sinister anti-Islam Knights Templar International group and whipping up support for far-right groups in Hungary and other eastern states.

Dowson, from Airdrie, boasts of donating bulletproof vests, night vision goggles, drones and other supplies to the thugs and asks US supporters to sign up or send money.

The Daily Record uncovered footage showing Dowson hunting down asylum seekers alongside masked and heavily armed Bulgarian skinheads.

In the sickening footage, Dowson whispers to the camera: “We are on the Bulgarian Turkish border on patrol and looking for illegals. The dedication these guys have got is very impressive.

“The borders of Europe are being protected more by these men than our governments.

“Today, the Knights Templar International brought along vests and ballistics and drones and night vision, stuff that these guys desperately need.

“A big thank you to supporters in America and the Philippines and other countries who have contributed to this.

“These are men and women, mainly ex-forces, doing it in their own free time, facing all sorts of risks and dangers.

“These are good people and they’re very very deserving of your support.”

On another video, Dowson tells the Bulgarian thugs: “When my grandfather was alive, this land was ruled by Ottomans, by the Muslims.

“Now they’re coming back. Remember the forces of Islam once got as far as Vienna.

Dowson claimed the group are engaged in a “fight of Christ”

“Now they are as far as John O’Groats in Scotland and more and more are coming in.

“This is not political, this is a fight between good and evil, black and white, a fight of the cross, a fight of Christ.

“If you can, please come train with these people, help them. If you’re too old or can’t leave your job, send them some money.

“Get them organised, help them, supply them, meet their needs because they’re guarding your border, my border, the whole of the free western world’s border, even America’s border. The fight is here.”

Dowson formed racist political group Britain First and was closely associated with mosque invasions across the UK where thugs forced their way into the places of worship and confronted imams.

He has also been a key fundraiser for other groups like the BNP.

Earlier this year, Dowson and former BNP supremo Nick Griffin travelled to St Petersburg in Russia for a rally of far-right groups.

Dowson also appeared at the Knights Templar International Hungarian Border Mission as a delegate and staged meetings with banned Hungarian neo-Nazi group Magyar Önvédelmi Mozgalom.

A spokesman for anti-racist group Say No To Hate said: “Dowson and Griffin are clearly up to something.

“They are spending a lot of time in eastern Europe, presenting themselves as viable voices.

“They are simply churning out the same messages of intolerance that they did back in the UK.

“Dowson is appealing to Americans for donations to supply a militia group in Bulgaria, which seems quite alarming.

“They are running around the woods at the Turkish border with rifles, determined to round up refugees. It’s a dreadful proposition. I would urge anyone in the UK or further afield to have nothing to do with them.”

Dowson was recently named in a dossier leaked to the Record detailing the most dangerous extremists.

Dowson is active in Loyalist circles and helped launch the Protestant Coalition, who have links to Britain First. He is also an ex-Calvinist minister and anti-abortionist and set up a BNP call centre in Northern Ireland.

The Daily Record contacted Dowson to ask him about the videos and his support for the Shipka Bulgarian Movement.

He said: “The only time I have ever spoken to the Record you have done nothing but a hatchet job so you’re going to write whatever you’re going to write. You don’t really need a comment from me.”

When our reporter stressed that Dowson had been approached to give him an opportunity to comment, he replied: “Aye right. Okay. Nae bother. Listen, have a nice day my friend.”

The Shipka Bulgarian National Movement claim to be “at war” with Muslim immigrants coming into the country from Turkey.

Britain First – A Great British Con?

Britain First have had great success on social media, with their Facebook page having gained almost 1.5 million likes in the past few years. Founded by ex BNP chief fundraiser Jim Dowson in 2011, the group started as another of his get-rich-quick schemes. In 2012 they collected money on the streets under the guise of helping ex armed forces, in a true Del and Rodney style complete with folding table that got packed up in seconds if someone called the rozzers.

This video was recorded by an ex soldier who tracked them down.

In 2014 Britain First registered as an official political party, with Paul Golding as leader. Also in 2014 Golding along with his father and his deputy Jayda Fransen, opened a limited company – Britain First Merchandise Ltd. The company initially used Jim Dowson’s patriot store to sell their products, heavily promoting the link on their now popular Facebook page. These days the online shop is directly accessed from the official party website. Party accounts are registered annually with the Electoral Commission and are available to the public. On checking the available 2014 and 2015 accounts, we noted that there was no revenue declared from any commercial or miscellaneous activities. Obviously we were aware the party promoted and sold their merchandise, so we queried this omission of declared funds with the Electoral Commission. The response was sadly unhelpful. Britain First have confirmed to them the Ltd company and the political party are two separate entities and the proceeds from each activity are completely separate.

BUT THEY USE THE SAME WEBSITE! THEY PROMOTE THE GOODS THROUGH THEIR PARTY PAGE!! THEY EMAIL PARTY SUPPORTERS TO ASK THEM TO PURCHASE GOODS!!!

Imagine the same thing happening with the Conservatives or Labour. Surely this can’t be legal, we asked? The EC were once again unhelpful and suggested we contact the police ourselves if we believed fraud had been committed.

Of course, we then reported this to the police action fraud department, along with evidence of Mr Golding and Ms Fransen emailing supporters of the party for donations to fund their own criminal legal proceedings and fines. In what was beginning to feel like a ping pong match, after 5 minutes on hold whilst they took some advice, we were told it was a matter for the Electoral Commission.

We will continue in our quest to find some official department that can take action, and report any progress.
