I wasn’t there.
I’ve never been to any of the NPI conferences. I presume some of my friends and followers were there though. I watched all of the drama with the anti-fa unfold via Twitter. There was a point when the circus outside the NPI conference was on FOX News.
The New York Times has two stories on the NPI conference:
“WASHINGTON — For years, they have lurked in the web’s dark corners, masking themselves with cartoon images and writing screeds about the demise of white culture under ominous pseudonyms. But on Saturday, in the wake of Donald J. Trump’s surprising election victory, hundreds of his extremist supporters converged on the capital to herald a moment of political ascendance that many had thought to be far away.
In the bowels of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, three blocks from the White House, members of the so-called alt-right movement gathered for what they had supposed would be an autopsy to plot their grim future under a Clinton administration. Instead, they celebrated the unexpected march of their white nationalist ideas toward the mainstream, portraying Mr. Trump’s win as validation that the tide had turned in their fight to preserve white culture. …”
They published this one an hour or so ago:
“WASHINGTON — By the time Richard B. Spencer, the leading ideologue of the alt-right movement and the final speaker of the night, rose to address a gathering of his followers on Saturday, the crowd was restless.
In 11 hours of speeches and panel discussions in a federal building named after Ronald Reagan a few blocks from the White House, a succession of speakers had laid out a harsh vision for the future, but had denounced violence and said that Hispanic citizens and black Americans had nothing to fear. Earlier in the day, Mr. Spencer himself had urged the group to start acting less like an underground organization and more like the establishment.
But now his tone changed as he began to tell the audience of more than 200 people, mostly young men, what they had been waiting to hear. He railed against Jews and, with a smile, quoted Nazi propaganda in the original German. America, he said, belonged to white people, whom he called the “children of the sun,” a race of conquerors and creators who had been marginalized but now, in the era of President-elect Donald J. Trump, were “awakening to their own identity.” …”
See also Buzzfeed, NPR, LA Times, and The Daily Beast. Congratulations to Richard Spencer and NPI on triggering the shit out of the #LyingPress. I didn’t even recognize Spencer in this photo in the Christian Science Monitor.
Occidental Dissent has triggered them as well. This site has been under some kind of attack for a few days now. I had to activate Cloudflare this morning to take care of the problem. That’s why you are seeing that screen pop up which tells you to wait a few seconds for the page to load. As with the Twitter purge, I take it as a clear sign that our haters are even more upset than usual that they are trying to take us offline now.
Anyway, I haven’t been to Washington, DC in six years, but I am planning a road trip to Virginia for Trump’s inauguration on January 20th. I hear the Left is planning to throw a historic tantrum. Is anyone else here interested in going?
Note: Anyone know what happened to my old buddy Jeffrey Imm of R.E.A.L. (Response for Equality and Liberty)? I assume that guy is still around up there.
