Alt-right and alt-lite: Unite! (Guests: Mike Cernovich, Baked Alaska)

Gavin McInnesArchive

We have a lack of unity on the right. 

The paleocons hate the neocons hate the libertarians hate the Trumpers hate the Never Trumpers. Even within the far right we have the Alt-Right warring with the Alt-Light.

I love anyone who wants less government so it breaks my heart to see all this hate. That brings me two my guests:

Mike Cernovich just banned Baked Alaska from a fun inauguration party called "The Deplora-Ball." Alaska said Jews run the media and Mike didn't want the event to be marred by swastikas.

I get Mike: he's doing what Buckley did when "National Review" started to get infiltrated with Nazis. I also get what Baked is saying: Jews do dominate the media. They admit it!

I hate censorship but what I hate much more is all this fighting. We all want the same thing Braveheart wanted: FREEDOM!

Sheeeiiittt. Are we starting to take lessons from the DNC!? This always happens to a winning team.

I hate infighting :(

Every movement that starts out, will attract some fringe players. The successful groups, are the ones that can weed them out quietly and fast.

Mike Shockley, what is it you applaud exactly? Does it help a reputation or cause to come off as a nazi or not? It is something I would step away from. It’s why the term alt right is no longer usable. It’s been ruined by loose cannons. Giving a hail Hitler salute is never going to go over well, nor are anti-Semitic statements, made in jest for a reaction or not. Those people are welcome to their opinions, but are nobody I want to hang around with or be associated with. Optics are important, especially if you are under a microscope as anyone right of centre is these days.

But to conclude, it is hard to have all the shades of conservatism under the same group, but at one point you must get away from the extreme and the opportunists, if we want to continue winning we must be welcoming common sense and let the fringe extremists go even if down deep they share 80% of your value, one day they’ll grow up and be closer to the center.

Gavin is right and I applaud his efforts.

I’m with Cernovich. There is nothing wrong with discernment. There need to be deal breakers to weed out potential branding problems. Everybody is free to have their own opinions, but if you’re free speech isn’t something I can stand with, hypothetically speaking, and will soil my brand, then I don’t need to associate with you. I say fair enough. I like what Mike said, “You’re issues are your issues, don’t make them mine.” I like Mike Cernovich’s decisiveness. I hate the term ‘inclusive’ as it has been so over used by the left. You will never hear me use that term except when disparaging it. Why I say? Why do we have to be ‘inclusive’?
I don’t know much about Baked Alaska other than Mike has recently been feuding with him, but most of these guys have something to offer, and are the pioneers of the new alternative media. I have been following Mike, Milo, Molyneaux, and Crowder as well, for the past few months now. My hats off to them.

I make the cut at anyone who sees government/politics/statism as the solution not the problem.

- Crowder was a neverTrumper at the start but he was pro Trump as it went along. If they became pro-Trump before the election was over, even if they were holding their noses, I don’t consider them to be neverTrumpers.

- I believe in freedom of speech but not freedom from consequences. If you want to talk like a Nazi, fine. Just don’t get upset when you’re stuck with being treated like one.
