The Nationalist Times is usually filled with negative news and trends, and for good reason – there’s very little positive going on as it appears the anti-White loons and their top-down enablers and financiers are pretty much in the mopping up stage of the Permanent Cultural Revolution of the past half-century that has turned the U.S. into a corporate/communist/zionist playpen (pigpen might be a better word). So it’s a nice change to start the Intelligence Report with some good news, namely the “groyper wars” now raging against establishment conservatives (aka Conservatism Inc.) by the latest incarnation of the young-dominated alt-right (alternative right). To give some background, the alt-right gained a lot of traction and notoriety several years ago, particularly during the election of 2016 when alt-right websites, articles, “memes” and other activities made it appear to be growing to the point that it might seriously challenge the Republicrat permanent monopoly, particularly the Republican wing of the one-party bird of prey. The alt-right was almost unanimously behind Donald Trump at that time and is credited with helping him achieve his near miraculous election. The Nationalist Times and American Freedom Union did not have much sway among the alt-right, but used what influence we could to advise this dynamic movement of very bright, highly motivated young men and women to build their own political organization(s), cultivate a financial base of supporters, and otherwise put in place an institutional framework for when the inevitable strong backlash from the system began. But the alt-righters instead began engaging in street activism, often times directly engaging the Antifa communist scum, and usually handily defeating them. This strategy culminated in the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August of 2017, where hundreds and hundreds of young rightists gathered but were physically moved by the police at the event out of the park where their legally scheduled rally – which was always intended to be peaceful – was to be held and forced into the midst of the heavily armed Antifa terrorists, as their only way out of the park. Fights ensued for many hours, and an antifa supporter was killed by a car driven by James Fields, who had been trapped in the middle of the Antifa mob and was under attack and who then, accidentally or intentionally, gunned his car to escape, killing the woman. Readers are familiar with the sustained hysteria and condemnation that followed the “Battle of Charlottesville,” all of it directed at the alt-right and none at the communists who were attacking them. President Trump was ferociously attacked by the fake news media and by both Democrats and Republicans merely for saying there were “bad people on both sides,” and Congress followed up with hearings and resolutions condemning “White nationalism.” Some of the alt-right participants were arrested, many others were “doxxed” (had their names and employers publicized with the intent of having them fired), while others were the victims of “lawfare” (lawsuits designed to harass, bankrupt, and if possible imprison the leaders of the rally and some of their prominent followers). With no legal infrastructure in place, no organization or financial base of any kind to draw on, the aftermath of Charlottesville was devastating to the alt-right. Many of its activists dropped out while others turned on each other and factionalized to the point that it appeared the alt-right was finished. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . But not so fast – in the past couple of months the alt-right, in combination with other new adherents, has regrouped in a much more pragmatic and intelligent way and is now directly confronting establishment conservatives when they speak with pointed questions designed to show how weak, hypocritical and useless they are as the supposed “opposition” to the left. The young “groypers” – named after a slightly different version of a green frog named “Pepe” that dominated the alt-right back in ’16 – are now engaging Conservatism Inc. from the right, whereas before conservatives only worried about being confronted by leftists. The result thus far has been chaotic, illuminating, and at times comical. For example, at an event at UCLA featuring Donald Trump Jr., there to promote his new book, the following happened, as described by Will Sommer writing for The Daily Beast: “Donald Trump Jr. had just started talking about his new book at UCLA on Sunday when someone in the audience began imitating actor Joaquin Phoenix’s unsettlingly loud laughter from [the movie] The Joker. As the cackles filled the auditorium, Trump Jr. looked into the crowd, unsure whether what he was saying was really that funny. Things only got worse from there. Audience members began demanding a chance to question Trump Jr. and the event’s host, young conservative star and Turning Point USA chief Charlie Kirk. Over chants of ‘Q&A!,’ Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, took the microphone to call her boyfriend’s detractors losers. ‘I bet you engage in online dating, because you’re impressing no one here to get a date in person,’ Guilfoyle said. Unsurprisingly, that didn’t win over Trump Jr.’s critics. The trio of embattled conservative stars eventually left the stage amid shouts of ‘Q&A’ and ‘America First.’ And their fringe-right [sic] hecklers, who call themselves ‘Groypers’ in a nod to an obese alt-right cartoon toad that’s like Pepe the Frog but more racist, notched another win in their new battle against mainstream conservatives. ‘What a HUGE victory today,’ 22-year-old White nationalist Nick Fuentes wrote on encrypted messaging app Telegram after the event. ‘Cannot be understated what an incredible win we saw at UCLA.’ Whether he knew it or not, Trump Jr. had walked straight into a right-wing civil war that pits Fuentes and his allies against more mainstream conservative stars, including Kirk, podcaster Ben Shapiro, and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).” . . . . . . . . . . As Colin Liddell of the Affirmative Right website (affirmativeright.blogspot.com) describes the upstart Groyper movement: “The ground zero of the Groyper movement is Nick Fuentes, a slick, fast-talking, quick-witted young Zoomer of partly hispanic background who seems — at least so far — to have his head screwed on. In recent days Fuentes has been orchestrating a revolution against Conservatism Inc., which sometimes likes to use billionaire donor money to put on ‘free speech’ and student outreach events. Fuentes, in alliance with people like Patrick Casey of the American Identity Movement (formerly Identity Europa), has been weaponizing his Groyper following to attend these events and ask awkward but quite legitimate questions on Conservatism Inc’s lax attitude to immigration, its promotion of homosexuality, and its support of Israeli interests. Fuentes advises his followers to be assertive but not aggressive, to be polite and personable, but to resist being shunted aside, shut down, or otherwise ignored. This is excellent strategy. To use military metaphors, this is basically advancing — but not too far into dangerous enemy territory — and then setting up strong defensive positions and forcing the enemy to attack you. This is exactly where the Groyper Wars stand now, with Conservatism Inc shredding its free speech credibility with its own supporters (as opposed to donors) by attempting to stop Groypers asking perfectly fair questions. There are even accounts of anyone in a MAGA cap or holding a crucifix being filtered out of the queues to ask questions to the speakers at these events. Also, there have been attempts to discredit Fuentes and the Groypers as ‘anti-Semitic,’ ‘racist’ ‘bigots,’ and all the other made-up ‘shut-up’ words that were deployed against the Alt-Right.” . . . . . . . . . . . . The always astute James Kirkpatrick (who writes for V-DARE and the Unz Review) gave his optimistic take on the anti-conservative insurgency: “Conservatism Inc. grifters are on the defensive as passionate, educated, and brave young Christians, nationalists, and patriots are confronting them at their campus events. Charlie Kirk, Matt Walsh, Rep. Dan Crenshaw and others are being bombarded with questions about immigration and the double standards of identity politics. Conservatism Inc. is responding to this grassroots, spontaneous movement the same way it always does — with demands for censorship, purges, and centralized control. Yet the scam is exposed for all to see. New leaders are emerging, ready to transform the American Right into a force truly representing the Historic American Nation. ‘Conservatism Inc.’ is the parasitic network of non-profits, phony activist organizations, and outright scam operations masquerading as a movement. . . The most poisonous way it works: taking idealistic young campus conservatives and forcing them to parrot meaningless slogans about the glories of neo-liberalism and big business. Such nonsense is irrelevant to the lived experience of young (and mostly White) campus conservatives, who are confronted with radical anti-White politics, corporate censorship, and the ruinous cost of family formation. Preaching about tax cuts for the rich and bragging about anti-racism is utterly hollow to these young Americans who see their country being dismantled. Not surprisingly, Conservatism Inc. has a long tradition of purging those who want to ask intelligent questions about race, immigration, and the real nature of politics. As a direct result, ‘the movement’ is filled with a combination of cynical con-artists possessed of a certain low cunning and outright fools who implode when they meet with serious opposition. Additionally, this ‘movement’ has completely failed to reach young people because conservatism’s slogans are irrelevant to what we face. An astonishing 70 percent of millennials now say they would vote for an avowed socialist candidate. . . By any standard, Conservatism Inc. is an unfathomable failure. Unless the point is to lose. Which, of course, it is. Conservative Inc.’s purpose is to keep the American Right corralled and thwart a successful populist movement. Defeat is preferable to a success the bipartisan Establishment can’t control. Meanwhile, individuals within the ‘movement’ personally profit while they manage the decline. By purging nationalists, Conservatism Inc. ensures there is no competition. Thus, the Beltway Right operates in de facto partnership with Antifa and journofa to make sure those with careers in Conservatism Inc. recycle the same stale talking points about tax cuts, Israel, ‘free markets,’ and ‘anti-socialist’ talking points that compare Norway to North Korea. Dissenters are purged if they even appear in a photograph with the wrong person. . . Consider those who are promoted by Conservatism Inc. today — most notably Congressman Dan Crenshaw (TX-2), who is clearly being positioned as the next John McCain. When asked about H.R. 1044, the Treason Lobby’s latest drive to dispossess Middle America by importing a leftist Indian overclass, Congressman Crenshaw complains about those who think Whites will someday be a minority, calling it ‘nonsense’ and saying ‘we aren’t identity politicians.’ He’s right of course – ‘identity politicians’ win, which is why Texas will soon be a blue state, and ‘American’ only in name. . . Crenshaw is simply not giving a serious answer. The last GOP Congressman from Occupied Houston, he’ll soon be displaced just like California Republicans were. . . Crenshaw was asked his opinion of the ‘anti-White policy known as Affirmative Action.’ Incredibly, he denied that it hurts Whites and said that it’s anti-black. Finally, consider Crenshaw’s response to a question about whether a law that prohibits ‘anti-Semitism’ and conflates it with criticism of Israel is a violation of the First Amendment. Crenshaw, chillingly, accused his student questioner of ‘cloaking yourself in the First Amendment’ to engage in ‘vehement anti-Semitism.’ . . . Not surprisingly, the Matt Walsh Q&A stream was reportedly set to private so no one could watch it. But other brave students are asking questions at Conservatism Inc. events. This effort is spontaneous and decentralized. However, Nick Fuentes, the funny, charismatic, and Catholic host of the America First YouTube show, has become a de facto spokesperson for it. Which means he’s also Conservatism Inc.’s current target. Since 2016, many of the figures who powered the populist movement that elected Donald Trump have been doxxed, deplatformed, or cut off from financial support. James Allsup, who had half a million subscribers, recently lost his platform on YouTube (though he’s re-emerged at TheRightStuff). Now, they’re coming for Fuentes. Former Trump Administration official and current fish oil salesman Sebastian Gorka has been especially active in demanding Fuentes lose his ‘verified’ Twitter checkmark, if not his account. Gorka is just one example of how conservatives find it impossible to respond to charges of ‘racism,’ ‘sexism,’ ‘homophobia,’ or other made up sins. They accept the Left’s premises and desperately throw potential allies in between them and the commissars, hoping to be eaten last. . . Because of Conservatism Inc.’s cowardice, the Left has total control over the culture and even the American Right. It can dictate who is and is not allowed a job and a platform. It has absolute domination of American higher education. If conservatives want to win, they need to treat the right to free speech online as an ‘existential issue,’ as an excellent American Mind piece recently observed. It also needs to be a principled defense. Even if you don’t agree with Fuentes, or Allsup, or anyone else, they still have a right to be online and to use basic services. Yet we know Conservatism Inc. won’t defend free speech — because if it did, it would lose its hold over its own constituency. Conservatism Inc. serves as useful controlled opposition for the Left but can’t withstand a sustained challenge from the nationalist Right.
