One of the comments (by Alphaenemy) on the Amren article was critical of Mr. Anderson:
The guy is a black activist for free speech. Probably loosely affiliated with the GOP.
When I saw his pictures on twitter I lurked his profile a little bit. What I saw made me stop feeling bad for him: he accused antifa of being racist and called leftist journalists WHITE terrorists (yes, with all capital letters).
Even he felt the need to use white as a pejorative and to accuse his enemies of the eternal crime of racism even if he was not attacked because of his race (and the man that punched him looks dark skinned!)
Who cares about this loser?
Since Mr. Anderson’s Twitter account has been removed, I was unable to see the comments in question. However, I think that Alphaenemy is mistaken. It might be an accurate assessment for a computer algorithm, or a simple-minded person, but it’s not an accurate assessment if we take it in context.
No, I’m not saying it’s okay to attack whites as a race. I’m not even saying it’s okay to attack white criminals based on race, unless the crime is somehow connected to the white race.
What we need to bear in mind is that Antifa, and the radical Left in general, portrays itself as freedom fighters against fascism and racism – specifically racism against blacks. The bulk of their narrative, which originates from Cultural Marxism, is based on the concept that blacks are victims of white oppression. In this context, it makes sense to draw attention to their raw hatred, and viciousness, against black conservatives. It highlights the hypocrisy of the radical Left, and that’s a good thing.
There’s more than one way to fight the rising tide of Communism. Each individual can choose which tactic is best for him in this war. If you happen to be black, then why not leverage that fact as an ideological weapon?
We don’t have to agree with everything Anderson writes or stands for – but we should recognize that a black man who fights for freedom, law and order, and Western civilization in general, is more of an ally than a white man who is a Marxist.
Conservatism Inc. has earned a bad reputation. It has consistently worked against the interests of whites, and it has shown no courage in taking a stand against the spread of Marxist ideas or open borders. However, the sheer magnitude and pervasiveness of the Left’s War Against Whites has forced many mainstream conservatives to defend whites.
I’ve highlighted a few such conservatives on this blog. People such as Avi Yemini, Sydney Watson and Heather McDonald. But there are so many others that I can’t possibly list them here. It’s becoming mainstream, among conservatives, to defend whites. From this, it’s only a small step to declare, “It’s Okay to be White.” Yes, mainstream conservatism is drifting toward white-advocacy.
Two concepts that conservatives can not (so far) accept are freedom of association for whites and the reality of biological racial differences. These are important concepts, but we’d be fools to miss this historic opportunity to bridge the gap between conservatism and white-advocacy.
Regardless of who wins the presidential elections, we must work together with conservatives toward a better future.
It’s true that many conservatives keep us at arm’s length, so that they won’t be labeled as “racists,” but this doesn’t mean we should unnecessarily give them justifications for doing so. We should stick to our principles, while at the same time understanding that we don’t have the luxury of rejecting millions of potential allies in our current struggles.
