Why I’m Leaving the Label “Alt Right” Behind

A few years ago I was just a Paleo conservative, libertarian leaning, anti feminist who was concerned with the direction the Social Justice Warriors were going in regards to the deliberate destruction of both white culture, as well as white people themselves both in Europe and the rest of Western Civilization so when I stumbled across the “Alt Right,” first under the public figures of Christians like Vox Day and Paul Ramsey, I was naturally inclined to pick up the label.

I was used to interacting cheerfully with a variety of beliefs and I figured that if we all had the same end goals I could work with these figures…

It never much bothered me that atheists, or pagans were involved in the movement because as a former pagan myself I was used to interacting cheerfully with a variety of beliefs and I figured that if we all had the same end goals I could work with these figures -and for the most part I still think that is true, however, since both Vox Day and Paul Ramsey dropped the label of Alt Right and/or dropped their involvement in the cause, I have been pondering the label.

Certainly all the lies about what happened in Charlottesville didn’t help and even though an independent report showed that the violence that day did not come from the Alt Right, the stigma, which was entirely fabricated by the media, stuck around.

I tend to dig my heels in and not let others define me, however in the past 9 months since Charlottesville I have been careful not to directly identify as “Alt Right” since the term seemed to be in great flux.

…I continued to identify first and foremost as a Christian…

Instead I continued to identify first and foremost as a Christian, as I have for these many years, and summed up my politics as “dissonant right” or “identitarian” – both lables I’m still fairly comfortable with at present.

I was not alone in this as many people who and been self labeling as Alt Right or who had been labeled as Alt Right drew away from this lable in the wake of society’s refusal to allow us to define who we were but instead simply paint us all with the broad brush of “Nazi.”

We all sought the same thing; self determination for white people in white lands. The right to preserve our people and our culture…

Whatever we wanted to call our movement didn’t really matter to me anyway. We all sought the same thing; self determination for white people in white lands. The right to preserve our people and our culture from the attacks both mentally, spiritually and physically coming from the radical Left and global elite.

I still seek those things, however, there has been a few radical breakdowns in both the character and the conduct of major players in the movement.

First; Matthew Heimbach, someone know for being on the socialist and more “red neck” side of the movement, reportedly cheated on his wife (with whom he has two small children) and then physically assaulted her when she confronted him over it, even choking her in front of their children.

To say I don’t want to be associated with that is an understatement! That sort of behavior does NOT represent my values and frankly makes me very angry. His dear wife has my undying support but frankly Matthew needs to get himself right with God and the heck out of politics.

Now it’s one thing to believe that.. but it’s quite another to come on to my Gab account and start harrassing me… when I’m simply posting about some Easter dinner recipes.

Second, as Easter approached this year I began seeing the same tired “Easter is a pagan celebration” meme being tossed at me from people within our movement. Now it’s one thing to believe that, which I do not, but it’s quite another to come on to my Gab account and start harrassing me declaring my God to be fake when I’m simply posting about some Easter dinner recipes.

I made a response video …and stopped responding to attacks.

Even still, I was happy to go on my way. I made a response video so people knew where I stood, and where the facts stood on the issue, and stopped responding to attacks. I didn’t associate my attackers with the Alt Right specifically until today when I saw this Tweet from Spencer…

So, the supposed atheist “leader” of the Alt Right, Richard Spencer, published this article on his website, AltRight.com, claiming that Easter is pagan and I just have to ask, why? Why would he do that?

Why would he do that?

If he’s an atheist why would he care, he has no dog in this fight? Second, he is well aware that the Alt Right movement contains many Christians, why would he counter signal them like this and side with pagans especially over a myth (that Easter is Pagan) so ridiculous even Huffington Post knows better than to make that claim anymore?

(Seriously, it’s not pagan. Not at all.)

Now, I’m not saying you can’t be pagan or that you can’t celebrate the spring equinox, I’m simply saying that isn’t where Easter comes from.

Why is anyone…being divisive in the movement?

But OK, no matter where you stand; Christian, Pagan, Atheist or other, why is anyone going around starting trouble and being divisive within the movement?

Frankly, I’m tired of “alt righters” constantly telling me I worship a “Jew on a stick” and I was happy to ignore them as outliers until I see this divisive article on AltRight.com (which also happens to make us look intellectually defunct).

Why would I continue to…defend and reclaim this label?

So I’m left wondering why would I continue to endure personal attacks and death threats to defend and reclaim this label? It’s dead, it’s gone.

I still hold all the same beliefs…

As I said in the beginning of this article, I still hold all the same beliefs I held years ago when I stumbled across the Alt Right but the term itself has changed or shrunk down such that I find myself outside of it now. It no longer reflects Vox Day’s 16 points of the Alternative Right and now openly attacks my faith from the highest levels up.

The term… is not really needed…Christian works just fine…

The term “Alt Right” is not really needed to describe my beliefs anyway. Plain ol’ Christian works just fine.

God created the world, the races and the nations; defending all of them and preserving all of them, in their homelands, means being a good steward of God’s creation. Gen 10:32

God expects us to defend our borders. Ez 22: 30

God commands us to honor our parents and where we come from. To abandon our people is to abandon the ancestry, heritage and lineage that God gave us. Exodus 20:12

We are commanded to have families, to have many children and raise them in the faith to protect and defend their people. Psalm 127:3-5

We are commanded to protect and cherish our women and keep them safe hence we cannot allow people and cultures into our country which harm and mistreat our women. Ephesians 5:28

We are commanded to love and protect our family and serve them first. 1Timothy 5:8

We are commanded to love our neighbor, which does not mean the whole world at once, but our literal neighbor whom we share our nation and culture with. Matthew 22:36-39

The Bible speaks against false notions of equality in earthly ability (while it speaks to the equality in the worth of souls). Proverbs 22:7 says, “The rich rules over the poor.” In fact, inequality is such a built in part of God’s creation that we are commanded not to covet the things other people have; it’s one of the 10 commandments. Exodus 20:17

I have no desire to fight with anyone trying to secure a future for our people…

So, in short, I’m happy to work with a variety of people who have common interests and goals and I have no desire to fight with anyone trying to secure a future for our people.

Outside of promoting healthy women’s roles I don’t think women have a place in politics anyway.

Outside of promoting healthy women’s roles I don’t think women have a place in politics anyway.

So, I will personally no longer be using the Alt Right label while still retaining all of the same beliefs I’ve advocated the past few years; that of traditionalism, sovereignty and faith.

God bless.

(Side Note: Word Press has the weirdest habit of going back and changing some words randomly AFTER I press publish. I didn’t point them all out here when I read but I think I’ve gone back and caught them all. It’s hard because I will change them and then hit “publish” and it will change them back. Like defunked? Really Word Press? I wrote out “defunct.” Also some of the links work for me but other have reported they don’t work for them. Please leave me a comment if you have trouble with a link.)
