Winter is coming for white advocacy. We must be industrious ants, building up capital and bracing ourselves for further attacks and deplatforming. We can no longer be happy-go-lucky grasshoppers, depending on the kindness and fair play of capitalists. Fear not, we will never quit. But we need to build new institutions, an integrated electronic ethnostate offering everything from domain registration to webhosting to DDOS protection to mailing list management — all controlled by our movement. This is a huge task, and we obviously should have started building it years ago. But when you donate, you are helping us build it today.

Thank you for your loyal readership and generosity.

Greg Johnson

    Editor’s note: I do not provide a platform for people to impugn our intellectual honesty and engage in low-information moralizing.

    Something useful would be for Alt Right websites to post information supporting their side on Charlottesville and related actions:

    * Official reports vindicating the United the Right marchers.
    * Places to make financial contributions to the Unite the Right legal team.
    * Contacts for lawyers who want to do pro bono work.
    * Videos explaining the Alt Right narrative on Charlottesville.
    * Links to groups fighting for online rights: Electronic Frontier Foundation (https://www.eff.org/), Greatfire (https://en.greatfire.org/)
    * Articles explaining the goals for which the various Alt Right, White Nationalist and Identitarian groups are fighting.

    Right now this information is all over the place. It would be extremely helpful to have it all under one menu: THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARLOTTESVILLE, or whatever. Then each Alt Right website could run a link to it.

    One thing this can do is rally support from civil libertarians, Internet activists, patriots, law enforcement, and those who are fed up with leftist violence or see a common enemy in the current hostile oligarchy running the show in America. Make this a battle of the Alt Right Underdog against the System, a struggle for Free Speech, Due Process and the American Way.

    There are a lot of people out there who can be Red Pilled, if this information were to be organized and presented intelligently.

    A good interview with Kessler expressing himself clearly and cogently.

    However, it’s not clear to me that a second Charlottesville is a good idea. Maybe the Counter Currents team could have explored the pros and cons a bit more.

    Certainly, the importance of building an alt-right legal team came through loud and clear.

    Jason is very good in this interview. I admire his perseverance and perspicacity. He was unstable immediately after Cville but was under enormous pressure. I’m glad I got to pay him a compliment at the last AmRen.

    Richard Spencer should try contacting his insurance agent!

    For individuals facing civil lawsuits, there may be some coverage available under his or her renter’s/homeowner’s policy. Essentially, the insurance company will appoint a defense attorney and your liability limit is what you have available to settle.

    Go get em!

    In theory, any precedent this sets could be used against the left in the future.

    At this point I do not support going to a second Charlottesville rally.
    Unless the permitted event is some kind of a decoy for another torchlight March (any night except the night before the rally) There is no reasonable expectation of law enforcement applying the law equally or even honoring the constitution.
    We shouldn’t put any pro whites in harms way unnecessarily. We have to use our heads and not our hearts.
