The Alt Right, Anti-Semitism in the US and Trump

by Naomi Ragen on November 22nd, 2016

People are sending me information about Richard Spencer’s National Policy Institute conference in Washington D.C. They are neo-Nazis. They raise their hands in a Nazi salute and say Sieg Heil. They say they love Trump.

You know what? Maybe in their warped minds they think he’ll be good for them. Yeah, that’s what the Left, some of whom really do support Muslim-Nazi terrorists, would love you to think. They are idiots- the Sieg Heilers- and dead wrong.

So, for the record, this is the current narrative that the mainstream media is using to attack Mr. Trump over these Nazi losers.

Reporter Sarah Posner, a left-wing darling who writes articles about how the war in Gaza was started by Israel to win the Israeli election for the right (!), who works for the anti-Semitic Guardian, Al Jazeera and Mother Jones, told that publication that Steve Bannon – CEO of Breitbart Friends– said thatBreitbart is “the platform for theAlt Right.”

Alt Right is an amorphous term that is an umbrella for many anti-establishment groups, some of them like the National Policy Institute, who are white supremacists and viciously anti-Semitic. Bannon, now senior advisor to President-elect Trump, has vigorously denied that Breitbart supports any racist or anti-Semitic group.

It’s not only his word. I’ve been subscribing to Breitbart for many years. Breitbart is the most pro-Israel, pro-Jewish website on the internet, founded by a Jew who loved Israel and decided on a trip to Jerusalem to counter the anti-Israel mainstream media propaganda against her.

I have never seen anything remotely racist or anti-Semitic on Breitbart.

That is not to say that Alt Right neo-Nazis aren’t posting on the internet. They are. Just not on Breitbart.

Where you can find them with no problem, though, is on medium.com, founded by billionaire Evan Williams, who said to Bloomberg: “I am firmly against Trump” and donated generously to the Democrats. Check out the stomach-turning Traditio on medium.com, a Holocaust denying, sickeningly anti-Semitic website. When I asked medium.com to take it down, they wrote me back that they don’t believe in censorship.

The Leftists – Obama-lovers-best-deal-possible-with-Iran – will use any tactic to bring down a democratically elected government opposed to their idiocies and malevolence. They call anyone they don’t agree with a Nazi, but guess what? There are actually real Nazis out there. They just don’t have anything to do with Breitbart, or Trump. My God, the man has Orthodox Jewish grandchildren! Does he sound like Hitler to you?

If you are interested in understanding what is really going on in America, please read the astounding book by the late, great Andrew Breitbart: Righteous Indignation.

You’ll finally understand why Trump is hands down the best thing to happen to America, Israel and the Jews in a long, long time.

'Hail Trump!': White Nationalists Salute the President Elect

“Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!”

That’s how Richard B. Spencer saluted more than 200 attendees on Saturday, gathered at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., for the annual conference of the National Policy Institute, which describes itself as “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of  people of European descent in the United States, and around the world.”

Spencer has popularized the term “alt-right” to describe the movement he leads. Spencer has said his dream is “a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans,” and has called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”

For most of the day, a parade of speakers discussed their ideology in relatively anodyne terms, putting a presentable face on their agenda. But after dinner, when most journalists had already departed, Spencer rose and delivered a speech to his followers dripping with anti-Semitism, and leaving no doubt as to what he actually seeks. He referred to the mainstream media as “Lügenpresse,” a term he said he was borrowing from “the original German”; the Nazis used the word to attack their critics in the press.

“America was until this past generation a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity,” Spencer said. “It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.”   

The audience offered cheers, applause, and enthusiastic Nazi salutes.
