Andrew Auernheimer Lusts After Teenage Girls And Thinks All Western Women Should Be Raped
In the inaugural episode of his podcast Race Ghost: Roast To Roast, Andrew Auernheimer openly celebrated white supremacist mass murderers — including killers of children and the elderly.
DIY Division: The Violent neo-Nazi Group Central to the California Alt-Right and Alt-Light Protest MovementsCourage, Identity, Tyler Durden
The group’s ideology appears to be a mishmash of mostly equal parts Identity Evropa’s flaccid identitarian discourse (itself inspired by fascist organizations like Generation Identity from France) and the fetishization of masculinity, physical fitness, and violence mixed with the shallow anti-corporate and anti-consumerist themes of the film Fight Club. Propaganda by the group overwhelmingly contains the usual fascistic themes of emasculated young white men needing to reclaim their identities through learning to fight and engaging in purifying violence.
To this end, the group regularly meets in public parks or the homes of members to train in boxing and other fighting techniques. Images of this training are used for recruitment on their social media, and juxtaposed with quotes from fascist figures such as Julius Evola. The group seems to be particularly fond of posting shirtless photos of masked up members doing pull ups which are overlaid with the group’s name.
DIY Division also espouses a vague and pop culture influenced anti-consumerism message similar to Fight Club, a film where the white male protagonist attempts to find meaning in his emasculated yuppie life through starting an underground fighting club which eventually leads to the formation of a proto-fascist cult lead by the protagonist himself. The group’s propaganda makes plenty of references to these types of themes, and decries the perceived weakness that modern society breeds in men. The overwhelming message is that a return to a vague and undefined form of traditionalism (another common neo-Nazi theme) and anti-modernity are direly needed for white men, all while simultaneously placing a central importance on social media, memes, and other contemporary technologies to further their message.
The group’s propaganda also emphasizes an anti-drug or straight edge message which again, is a common theme among certain segments of neo-Nazis who often view substances (excluding alcohol apparently) as part of a global Jewish conspiracy to weaken the white race.
“Three Pillars of the Alt Right: White Nationalism, Antisemitism, and Misogyny”
DECEMBER 5, 2017 SPENCER SUNSHINE
A number of progressive organizers have portrayed the fascist wing of the Alt Right, and related White Nationalists, as a merely a condensed form of the usual White supremacy in the United States. I explain why this is a mistaken perception of their political views, and why this matters in formulating strategies of resistance.
“The new wave of avowed White nationalists who have been energized by Donald Trump—most prominently the Alt Right—have held demonstrations across the United States, most famously in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017. Progressive activists have struggled to conceptualize and oppose the movement, and there have been a variety of different responses to it. However, some of these responses show a deep misunderstanding by progressives of what the Alt Right and other White nationalists believe. To misunderstand the multifaceted politics of fascism—and in particular, to ignore antisemitism—is to fail to comprehend the motivations and actions of the Alt Right and other White nationalists. It can also create a situation in which those who are targeted are left to fend off their would-be oppressors without solidarity.
”The Alt Right can be understood as a Far Right style and approach, rather than having a single ideological position. It does have two wings, however: one is the so-called Alt Lite, which includes the open participation of people of color, Jews, and gay men, including in leadership roles. This includes figures like Jack Prosobiec, Laura Loomer, Baked Alaska, and Kyle Chapman (“Based Stickman”). They support Donald Trump and espouse a Patriotic ultra-nationalism, oppose immigration, demonize Muslims, and are hostile to the left. The other wing is the explicit White nationalists, who are driven by fascist ideology; they include Richard Spencer, Mike Enoch, and Andrew Anglin. They are like their Alt Lite relations, but also are open proponents of White nationalism. It is this fascist wing—who organized the 2017 demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia in August, and Pikeville and Shelbyville, Kentucky in April and October respectively—that will be addressed when the Alt Right is referred to here. (All of this is not to deny that there is a reciprocal interchange between these wings, particularly with Alt Lite figures frequently adopting White nationalist slogans and positions.)
There are three main themes the Alt Right organizes around: White nationalism, antisemitism, and misogyny, with lesser concentrations on Islamophobia, and opposition opposition to LGBTQ people, and “Communists.” This range of targets should be no surprise; the German Nazi Party was no different in the 1930s and ‘40s. One of their first actions upon taking power was to smash the Communist and Socialist parties, as well as the trade unions; the organizations were banned and the leaders imprisoned. In addition to Jews, the Nazis murdered people who were disabled, Sinti and Roma, queer, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and certain prisoners of war. Slavs, Black folks, and others also faced repression and death to varying degrees.

Alt-Right Women Want To Be Equal To Alt-Right Men & That’s … Feminism
If you're not familiar with the extent to which the alt-right expresses extreme hostility towards feminism, consider one of its members, Andrew Anglin, and his stance on white women having children with men of color. In a report on alt-right women, Harper's Magazine shared Anglin's quote wherein he said, "It's OUR WOMB. It belongs to the males in her society." There's also alt-right figure Milo Yiannopoulos who once asked, "Would you rather your child had feminism or cancer?"
With such extreme views emanating from some of the most prominent members of the movement, it's no surprise that some alt-right women are demanding more autonomy and independence for themselves.
Augustus Invictus withdraws from senate race while strengthening ties to the racist “alt-right” in-crowd
In 2014, two of Invictus’ male roommates went to the Orlando Police Department to accuse him of threats, intimidation and brandishing a firearm in the house. One of the men told officers of an incident in the early hours of the morning when Invictus confronted him in the living room with a loaded gun after mistaking him for an intruder. The man believed Invictus was under the influence of Seboxone at the time.
In Orlando in February 2016, a young woman called 911 and told responding officers that Invictus, an acquaintance, pulled a gun on her when she demanded he leave her apartment. Invictus denied the allegations, telling law enforcement that the young woman grabbed the gun first, though the weapon belonged to him. He was there with his then-girlfriend, who told police she heard, but did not see the altercation, and could not be certain who had the firearm first. The accuser wanted to press charges of aggravated assault, telling police Invictus was a threat both to her and his girlfriend. With conflicting statements and no further evidence, they declined to make an arrest.
In March of this year, another woman — a former girlfriend — reported him to police in Edgewood, Florida. Her allegations detailed harrowing, prolonged abuse, including imprisonment, sexual assault, beatings and death threats. Like prior accusations, the woman also alleged that Invictus threatened her at gunpoint. The young woman’s parents had earlier filed a report with a nearby police department, which stated they were concerned for her safety.
Invictus has repeatedly denied the allegations, which were obtained and posted publicly by a Libertarian blog shortly after the report was made. But the 2017 accuser is not the only woman to accuse him of intimate partner violence.
Twice in 2016, a different woman went to police alleging that Invictus had battered her. The first report was in March, after she and Invictus had broken up. She told Orlando police that he was stalking her, sending her unwanted emails and calling her at work.
The reporting officer writes, “The victim … stated via sworn statement the suspect had sent a friend a text message, and stated in that message that he was going to burn all of her possessions, and was going to shoot her on the spot.”
The report continues, “The victim further stated that the suspect has a history of violence, and has battered her numerous times over the past two years, however she did not report the violence.”
According to the officer’s account, the accuser provided law enforcement with the threatening text message, which was submitted to evidence.
She and Invictus apparently reconciled, because in August 2016, she went to police again. She alleged in a sworn written statement that during an argument the night before, he had beaten her, choked her and smothered her nose and mouth with his hand. The reporting officer took photographs, but noted that he did not see visible injuries to her face, neck or hand. The woman told police she wanted to press charges. According to the report, officers were unable to contact Invictus, and didn’t hear from him until he sent them an email denying the allegations. The woman later contacted police advising them that she left the state and didn’t plan to return.
Two sources, both close to Invictus and his accuser, suggested she fled Florida in fear shortly after the choking incident. Neither wishes to be named.
When Invictus was promising his supporters a return to “revolutionary politics” in his announcement last week, he characterized his philosophy thus: “People are not convinced by argument. People are convinced by force. People are convinced by strength.”
Don't let the alt-right hijack #MeToo for their agenda
Feminism is now being weaponized for right-wing agendas. We must not allow that to happen
‘In this moment, we need to ask better questions. Whose agenda is being served in each case?’
Sunday 10 December 2017
That was fast. In this #MeToo moment, feminism has been coopted by both people who don’t understand it and by people who oppose it. Worse: it’s now being used against people who are feminists and allies.
The most recent example comes from Mike Cernovich, the alt-right conspiracy theorist who led the way on the Pizzagate hoax that claimed senior Democrats were involved in a child abuse ring in the basement of a Washington DC restaurant. That whole ruckus should’ve given MSNBC pause when he went after one of their regulars.
Cernovich recently orchestrated a campaign to pressure MSNBC to fire contributor Sam Seder over a joke he made in a 2009 tweet. The network did fire him – only to then rehire him after a backlash against their decision.
If you have ever been exposed to jokes before, you’d know the tweet was sarcastic. It mocked people whose defense of Roman Polanski from child rape accusations rested on the fact that he was a ‘great artist’. It was an anti-rapist rape joke, like the kind that Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Amy Schumer and even Jay Leno later told about Bill Cosby.
We’re now at the point where people are being canned for jokes, by people who don’t get the jokes, don’t get feminism, don’t get that maybe there should be some proportion in this thing, and don’t get that right-wing men with a public record of misogyny might not be your best guides through all this.
Even if Seder’s joke was bad and made in the wrong spirit (which, just to be clear, it wasn’t), if we’re going to fire everyone who has made a non-feminist remark we’re pretty much going to clear all the offices everywhere of almost every man and quite a few women.
That’s why people who’ve been thinking about gender politics and women’s rights should be in charge of this moment. We need to be led through this by people who’ve experienced harassment and denigration and discrediting. People who’ve spent years listening to others and who have been thinking about the dynamics, ethics and consequences of these things before.
This should be a moment when powerful men and the women who’ve protected them say: ‘hey, when we were in charge it didn’t go that well, maybe we should learn to doubt ourselves, and our judgment, maybe we shouldn’t make snap decisions based on our brand-new interest in women as human beings possessed of inalienable rights.’
But instead they’re just finding new grounds to be in charge and to adjudicate all this.
Consider the experience of writer Ijeoma Oluo, who last week said that USA Today asked her to write a piece arguing a feminist position against due process.
She says an editor there told her, “[...] They want a piece that says that you don’t believe in due process and that if a few innocent men lose their jobs it’s worth it to protect women. Is that something you can do?”
They were asking her to say feminists are happy to harm individual men for the good of the cause, and not interested in distinguishing innocence from guilt. She refused. That’s not who she is and not who feminists are.
The slogan “believe women” arose because women have often been assumed from the outset to be crazy, mendacious, manipulative and anything but honest when they charge men of sexual crimes. That’s why their claims are often dismissed out of hand rather than investigated.
The slogan doesn’t mean don’t investigate the claims. An accusation pits two claimants against each other, an accuser and, usually, a person who claims they’re not guilty of what they’re accused of. Both deserve due process.
Project Veritas, the right-wing organization that went after Planned Parenthood in a sting operation over abortion a few years ago, bet that the Washington Post was also uninterested in distinguishing truth from falsehood, innocence from guilt.
They sent an undercover operator to pretend she had been sexually involved with Roy Moore as a minor. The Post demonstrated beautifully what due process looks like in journalism.
They interviewed the claimant and understood that she was trying to set them up and exposed her—a counter-sting they reported on in a November 27 article.
It was apparent that, like Cernovich’s attack on Seder, Project Veritas’s attack on the Post was meant to discredit the #MeToo movement. Feminism is now being weaponized for right-wing agendas. At which point it’s not feminism: it’s misogyny using feminism as a cover.
I was disconcerted that, when Leeanne Tweeden put out a story about her encounters with Al Franken, the alt-right site Infowars and right-wing Trump ally and Infowars associate Roger Stone apparently had advance knowledge of her story.
“Infowars Called It! Correctly Predicts Al Franken Sex Scandal!” said a headline on November 16. Tweeden is a Fox employee and a friend of Hannity’s. I would have liked to know more about the situation, especially why right-wing operatives had advance knowledge of it.
The women of the “alt-right” are speaking out against misogyny. They’d prefer absolute patriarchy..

Some 250 members of the far-right Identitarian movement attend a “memorial train” on the occasion of the Battle of Kahlenberg in 1683, when a Polish relief army repulsed the Turks.
The white supremacist right has a slogan, a clarion call that binds the movement across countries and generations. It’s called the “14 words”: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
Buried within that mantra is a dangerous implication for an extremist movement dominated by white men: They’re going to need a lot of white nationalist women.
But over the past few weeks, a small faction of devoted misogynists within the far-right is leading a wave of harassment against prominent white nationalist women. Male chauvinist celebrities have lead online “thot patrols” and dug up photos of far-right women who’ve allegedly dated men of color.
“Men in the alt-right are going to have to decide whether they will continue to passively/actively endorse this behavior, or speak out against it,” far-right video personality Tara McCarthy wrote in a now-deleted series of tweets. “If you want more women speaking publicly about ethno-nationalism, I suggest you choose the latter.”
Women make up some of the nationalist right’s most effective propagandists.
This recent conflict has been poorly framed in the media as the women of the alt-right suddenly discovering misogyny within the movement. But the nationalist right’s most prominent women, many of whom are Christian fundamentalists, are perfectly fine with a patriarchy that wants to relegate women to the roles of homemakers and child-bearers.

One of the strangest organizations in the rising “alt-right” movement, the headline-grabbing mix of white supremacism, racism and right-wing populism, has to be Proud Boys.
The group takes on something of a libertarian credo similar to that of their founder, former editor and co-founder of Vice Magazine Gavin McInness, and are all-male “Western chauvinists” who “do not apologize for creating the Western world,” according to their Facebook group pages.
In keeping with libertarian tradition, the group does accept non-white and gay members, as long as they recognize that “white men are not the problem.”
In their early days, Proud Boys, who take their name from a song in the Disney movie “Aladdin,” seemed little more than part fraternity, part fan club for McInness’s YouTube show. But McInness says they’re more than that. He compared his organization to other, older groups.
“It’s a men’s organization, sort of like Odd Fellows,” McInness told Bedford and Bowery, “It mirrors the Knights of Columbus in many ways.”
But both Odd Fellows and the Knights of Columbus are fraternal organizations devoted to charitable works, and the latter has a strong Catholic religious character. To date, there are no documented instances of Proud Boys hosting fundraisers or canned food drives, and the group claims no known religious affiliation.
Perhaps the highest profile instance of public works Proud Boys have engaged in came last September in Houston. In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, several members of Proud Boys posed for a photo op, knee-deep in flood water and brandishing firearms. The men said they were there to protect property owners from looters.
Like other fraternal organizations, Proud Boys have “degrees” of membership. The first degree is obtained simply by declaring oneself a Proud Boy. The second involves a “cereal beating,” which involves five other Proud Boys beating the candidate until he can name five breakfast cereals. The third means getting a tattoo of the Proud Boys logo.
Those were the original degrees. Last spring, a fourth was added: getting into a “major conflict related to the cause,” wrote McInness in Proud Boy Magazine.
McInness has been guarded about what this might mean, but a video taken on April 15 surfaced of Proud Boy Levi Romero getting arrested for fighting with anti-fascist black bloc protestors in Berkeley. In the background, someone was heard shouting, “You got your fourth degree.”
Five White Nationalists Who Completely Owned Themselves In 2017
From the inauguration of President Donald Trump to Charlottesville to Shelbyville, the alt-right has had a big year in 2017 — and one which was almost completely devoid of victories.
Matt Heimbach Wants To Purge The Alt-Right Of ‘Feminist’ And Racially Impure Women
As many people have already pointed out, the alt-right isn’t exactly welcoming to women. Or at least to women who want to do more than make white babies to populate the future ethno-state.
Heimbach might not be a fan of people who talk approvingly about “white sharia” and “white rape gangs,” but he certainly believes in rigid gender roles and sees feminism as a scourge that needs eradication. Heimbach said that men need to “encourage women to do their jobs,” holding his wife up as an example of how all women should comport themselves. On the other hand, women like Lauren Southern are a danger to the movement.
“[T]he Lauren Southerns of the world seem to be really just pushing to try and use — to sexualize themselves, which obviously she does that in a lot of her videos,” Heimbach said, “to get beta orbiters and to get money, and as Lauren Southern’s quote — I apologize for the graphic nature of the quote — she says that, ‘I don’t masturbate to anime, but I dress up like an anime character and men masturbate to me.'”
This somehow proves that Southern, who makes a living off bashing feminism, is actually “a feminist in every single way.”
Heimbach also had choice words for Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren whom he noted was fired from The Blaze over her pro-choice views. “The idea of a woman being a nationalist and supporting the murder of the unborn — the womb is supposed to be a place of life, it’s not supposed to be a mausoleum,” he said.
Chad, Trad, New Right And #DogRight: How The Alt-Right Movement Splintered in 2017
As the year progressed, prominent online media figures who had once been affiliated with the alt-right began to cluster in new, rebranded communities, bringing their followers with them. “Pizzagate” truther and pro-Trump pundit Mike Cernovich sought to establish himself as the leader of the “New Right” by denouncing racism and making excuses for his early endorsements of the alt-right. CRTV host Gavin McInnes disavowed the alt-right and focused on his weird hyper-masculine boy’s club called the “Proud Boys.”
Then came the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which served as dynamite that ultimately shattered whatever remained of the alt-right’s original infrastructure.
The rally—which was organized by “pro-white” activist Jason Kessler and was set to feature speeches by Spencer and Gionet—ended with the murder of a liberal counter-protester and caused a national uproar. Many who had previously been affiliated with the alt-right scrambled to condemn the movement and attempted to explain away their previous support. Some suggested, falsely, that the term “alt-right” had been taken over by white nationalists who had nothing to do with origins of the movement.
After Charlottesville, even many of those who continued to stand by their explicitly alt-right beliefs began to favor new terms like “ethno-nationalist” to describe their views.
At the same time, members of some internet communities that had previously been folded into the alt-right began to pigeon-hole themselves into bizarre subcultures. The “Trad” Right emphasizes that women should choose more “traditional” lifestyles that involve being home-keepers and having children. “Chad nationalism” promotes overt masculinity and body building. Gionet, for one, explored a new niche with a series of Christian-themed video game streams before later returning to political commentary. There’s even a tiny subculture called the “#DogRight” in which Twitter users with right-wing beliefs that resemble the alt-right’s anti-immigration rhetoric promote their cause alongside pictures of dogs.
And the infighting continues. Recently, for instance, two female YouTube personalities who had gathered large followings among the alt-right got pilloried by their former fans for not living out “trad” values and having children in their early 20s.
