The Alt-Right has a bit of a problem.
I am struck by the problems that the White Army had in the Russian Civil War. They were an army consisting almost entirely of officers. It was a bloody war, and there are stories of Â entireÂ battalions consisting of junior officers.
Despite the heroism (and brutality)Â of the White Army, they ended up losing the Civil War, mostly because they couldn’t get any of the various peasant uprising to join their cause. They had a problem reaching across class lines and rallying the masses against the deeply unpopular Bolsheviks. This was despite the marauding requisitions battalions of Red soldiers, the perceived foreigness of the Bolsheviks, and deep lingering loyalty to the Tsar…
And in the Alt-Right we have a cocktail bar problem. A class divide. Most of the people that I have met through NPI have been upper-middle class or outright upper class folks. They know the red-pill talking points, but they are often knee-deep in Bobo, SWPL society, and are divorced from the grass-roots, coarser, salt of the earth natural conservatives that they share an ideological similiarity with.
In my less sympathetic appraisal of the NPIÂ crowd, I can broadly cast the net and proclaim that these are the types that stress the importance of “hiding your power level” and sniff at the people openly flying Confederate flags or “revealing their power level” in other ways. And it makes sense from their point of view, sheltered in their middle-class apparachtik job, and surroundedÂ by SWPL society- to do otherwise would be social suicide.
They also tend to be the more autistic, hyper-intelligent and bow-tie wearing members of our movement. White nationalism seems to be more of an intellectual exercise for them, and not borne out of a deep feeling of love for their people. Most of these Dissidenti types are also theÂ most concerned with PR- a legitimate concern- but one that coincides with the needs of their socio-economic position in society. Their attitude can be a bit too convenient.
Which is why I suggest a “hoodlum/hooligan/prole” outreach program.
Richard Spencer- our lord and fuhrer- may believe that 5000 dollar membership fees to elite Phalanx sekrit klubs might be the way to propel the Alt-Right into the institutions through Gramscian inflitration, but it may be the path to circle-jerking and just recreating an Alt-Right WASP-like microcosm.
But lest it be said that we here at AI are all complaint and no action, here are some suggestions that we’ve cooked up.Â
The last couple of NPI conferences have been picketed by Antifa protesters, so heres a suggestion: we roll in together.
We all meet up ahead of time in a designated location and form up. We bring flags…Or not, it doesn’t really matter. We come well-dressed, in suits and we hold our heads high. We don’t slink in one by one through an Antifa gauntlet.Â
Marching like this gives us the benefit of showing our strength and fostering a spirit of martial unity. We roll in like an army, and we roll out like a band of brothers. Speaking from experience, it can be intimidating going in blind to a conference of fashy goys, and knowing that, we should work to emulate the methods of our European brothers.
The prospect of a “march,” however small, informal and impromptu gives the younger members a feeling of “doing something.” It attracts a youthful vigor and gives us that edginess that Spencer always waxes poetically about with his Ivy league thespian lisp.
No organizations within the greater organization.Â
People naturally coalesceÂ with other people of a similar socio-economic postition, thats simply human nature. Â But having neo-pagan types waltz around with their noses up and complain about “Storm-proles” is a disconcerting aspect of the experience.
But hey, who am I to judge. I’m just a Slav that was catapulted into Anglo-Jew society from an early age and came out feeling jaded. If I see some worrying elitist tendencies within NPI, then its not my place to judge. Only I worry about the viability of the model. Whether the NRx LARPers like it or not, we live in a mass democracy, and if the Alt-Right focuses on strutting around acting like the officers of a non-existent army, they may end up like the White Russians in the civil war.
Alone, detested, and ultimately defeated.
