As allegations of sexual assault rolled in yesterday, Donald Trump and his backers went full Alt-Right Crazy. (More)

“A crossroads in the history of our civilization”

At a rally in West Palm Beach yesterday, Donald Trump concocted an elaborate conspiracy theory to explain the deluge of women coming forward to accuse him of sexual assault or harassment:

The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. As an example, just one single trade deal they’d like to pass involves trillions of dollars controlled by many countries, corporations, and lobbyists.

For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind. Our campaign represents a true existential threat, like they haven’t seen before. This is not simply another four-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we, the people, reclaim control over our government. The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry. The political establishment has brought about the destruction of our factories and our jobs, as they flee to Mexico, China, and other countries all around the world.
[…]
We’ve seen this firsthand in the WikiLeaks documents in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of US sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends, and her donors.
[…]
The most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media, the press. Let’s be clear on one thing. The corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They’re a political special interest, no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with a total political agenda, and the agenda is not for you. It’s for themselves.

And their agenda is to elect crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy. For them, it’s a war. And for them, nothing at all is out of bounds. This is a struggle for the survival of our nation. Believe me. And this will be our last chance to save it on November 8. Remember that.

This election will determine whether we’re a free nation, or whether we have only an illusion democracy but in are in fact controlled by a small handful of special global interests rigging the system, and our system is rigged.

This is reality. You know it, they know it, and pretty much the whole world knows it. The establishment and their media neighbors wield control over this nation through means that are very well known. Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, rapist, xenophobe and morally deformed. They will attack you. They will slander you. They will seek to destroy your career and your family. They will seek to destroy everything about you, including your reputation. They will lie, lie, lie, and then again they will do worse than that.

They will do whatever is necessary. The Clintons are criminals. Remember that, they’re criminals. [Crowd chanting “Lock her up.”]

Trump’s claim that Clinton “meets in secret with international banks” drew an immediate response from Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt:

Overreaction? Not at all.

“Jews are Jews”

It’s well-known that Trump campaign chair Stephen Bannon proudly declared that he made Breitbart News “a platform for the Alt-Right.” And it’s no secret that anti-Semitism is a central feature of the Alt-Right agenda:

White supremacists, alt-right leaders argue, think white people are the best race. The alt-right doesn’t necessarily think that, they say; instead, they say they just want white people to have their own homeland.

With no Jews.

[Richard] Spencer in particular fixates on the homeland idea.

The alt-right needs to aspire to something, even if that dream won’t come true in his lifetime—and that means they should aim to build an ethno-state for just whites. And Spencer made it clear that white-only means Jews aren’t invited. They have their own identity, and it isn’t white-slash-European, and that’s that.

“Jews are Jews,” he said.

Spencer is among the Alt-Right leaders that Breitbart News praised back in March, in an article that purports to explain the Alt-Right in terms of “natural” white male tribalism:

Natural conservatives can broadly be described as the group that the intellectuals above were writing for. They are mostly white, mostly male middle-American radicals, who are unapologetically embracing a new identity politics that prioritises the interests of their own demographic.

In their politics, these new conservatives are only following their natural instincts – the same instincts that motivate conservatives across the globe.

Part-and-parcel of that is lashing out at Trump critics who have “Jewish sounding” names, and even threatening their children. Those (((triple parentheses))) you’ve seen pop up all over Twitter? That’s a response to an Alt-Right tactic purporting to “identify” Jewish opponents.

“Jewish ‘intellectuals’, fueled by their resentment toward Europe and Christianity….”

That’s why I put that flow chart in today’s featured image. It’s hard to read in a size that fits in our window, but you can see the full-sized version here. It purports to explain how “Cultural Marxism” is destroying good old-fashioned white America, and it starts with this claim:

Jewish “intellectuals”, fueled by their resentment toward Europe and Christianity, create the Frankfurt School with the intention of destroying Western culture to bring down capitalism and create a Marxist revolution. ((USEFUL IDIOTS))

In the flowchart, the Weimar Republic and the KGB combined to create the Frankfurt School, who “took over” Social Science Faculties and “made” Progressivism. The fact that Progressivism dates to the late 19th Century – fully thirty years before the Frankfurt School – is, of course, irrelevant. What follows in the chart is a mishmash of claims about denying or stifling “science” (read: pseudo-scientific grounds for racism and sexism) and “attacks Traditions” such as “Chastity,” “Marriage,” and “Gender Roles” to create “Broken Families,” “Crime,” “Affirmative Action,” “Welfare Cliffs,” the “Social Security Crisis” and “Shrinking Middle Class” … “RESULTING IN” …

(Take a deep breath)

Military Spending … computers, internet, satellites, moon, global hegemony
Welfare Spending … dysgenics, poverty, crime

“Dysgenics” is Alt-Right-speak for “too few pure white babies.” And no, I have no idea why they mention the moon in that list.

Anyway, the real problem is representative government:

Democracy may be blamed but the real problem is the representative system. Had immigration been subjected to a democratic vote, it would have been halted in all Western nations decades ago. Even if such a vote was carried out today, it would be halted.

Yes, really. Meanwhile….

“You don’t belong in the workforce”

The Alt-Right’s obsession over “Gender Roles” includes a radical, raging rejection of feminism:

Instead, it’s bound together by common enemies: Women, minorities, immigrants and national institutions that, by their worldview, threaten the freedom of white men with the toxic sword of political correctness.

In its eyes, the straight white man is actually the victim, the ultimate oppressed class in Western society. It believes the world is actually run by women who use sex and victimhood to gain influence, minorities who live fat off the tax dollars of white people, a corrupt media that advances a poisonous progressive agenda and wealthy Jews who control everything from the shadows.

Alt-righters call waking up to this inconvenient truth “red pilling.” Visiting an online hub for the alt-right and asking to be “red pilled” on some particular subject is, in essence, requesting that someone initiate you into their conspiracy theory.

For example, if you’re a woman who doesn’t like being treated like a sex object at work, then here’s Donald Trump Jr.’s solution:

“If you have a guys’ place you have a guys’ place,” Trump Jr., the candidate’s eldest son and executive vice president at the Trump Organization, said, describing himself as a “guy’s guy.”

A host interjected that women “complain, ‘it’s harassment’ – that’s why we hate having them around. They stop us from doing what we want to do.”

“I’m of that mindset – and I’ll get into trouble, I’m sure I’ll get myself in trouble one of these days,” Trump began. “If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten. I think it’s a respectable position.

“You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know,” Trump said, without elaborating. “But listen – there’s a place where you have to draw the line – but today the stuff you get in trouble for…”

The hosts then joked about pulling up pictures of naked women on the computer screen in their recording studio.

So if you think “the guys” sharing internet porn at the office creates a hostile working environment, then you “don’t belong in the workforce.”

Never mind that the law agrees with you. That’s only because those “Jewish intellectuals” “targeted” “Traditions” like “Gender Roles” … including the “natural” right of every white “guy’s guy” to behave at the office as if he’s in a strip club.

Trump promises to “Make America Great Again” for those white “guy’s guys” … and for them alone. That’s the essence of the Alt-Right.
