If there’s one thing Lauren Fox of Salon and CJ Ciaramella of VICE deserve credit for, it’s treating us attendees of the 2013 National Policy Institute conference with respect. Ok, not really. They didn’t show us respect in their respective coverage of us published last Tuesday, and while Fox was indeed respectful while she was with us at the conference and when she interviewed several of us, Ciaramella was a different story.
Fox’s coverage comes on the heels of a hit piece she wrote a month before the conference about NPI Executive Director Richard Spencer. She flew out to Montana to meet Spencer, and judging by her NPI-approved name badge, she paid the $185 to attend the conference. For a group of White intellectuals that are supposed to be marginalized, she sure takes heavy interest in NPI’s work.
As expected, she trashed the conference every way from Washington. Notably, she didn’t use the word “racist” once to describe it. Instead she used “white supremacist” in her headline and “white separatist” twice in the body of her article. This might be anecdotal evidence that anti-whites such as Fox are shifting from using the r word towards making “white” into a dirty word.
Yours truly was one of the several Millennials that Fox interviewed. She asked me what I thought the NPI had to offer White Millennials, and I told her about the April 2012 report which showed that “58% of white millennials believe that discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities.”
The NPI seeks to reverse that discrimination, which is to say that the NPI supports the existence of a nation that Whites can call our own – a nation where we won’t be discriminated against through policies like affirmative action and “fair housing.” What the NPI has to offer White Millennials is a dream of a new nation where their kind isn’t demonized and persecuted.
This is a dream that highly appeals to young White men, as Fox herself was forced to admit when she wrote that “the most surprising thing about the conference were the number of young men present, millennials in search of a political identity.”
Then there’s Ciaramella’s coverage. He was more snarky and negative than Fox was. Considering that Fox writes for the ultra-liberal Salon whereas Ciaramella writes for the “conservative” Washington Free Beacon, that’s a damning indictment on the supposed “opposition” that conservatism presents to the liberal establishment.
If the NPI has an “alarming agenda” like he claims, than what are we to make of him approvingly reporting on a group named after a man who voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act? Ciaramella is a guy who wants it both ways on political correctness. He thinks smearing the NPI will win him respectability, but he’s as white as me or Richard Spencer. The Jesse Jackson’s and Al Sharpton’s of the world don’t recognize any differences.
At least Ciaramella accurately quoted me as saying that conservatism has failed to address anti-white bias in government and media. For the record, I made it a priority not to give Fox or Ciaramella anything they could take out of context, because that’s exactly what reporters like them do when given half the opportunity.
Ciaramella also claimed that I was the only attendee who was willing to give his full name. Considering the SPLC-style manner that he wrote that God-awful hit piece (he actually cited the SPLC at one point; how “conservative” of him), can the attendees who didn’t give him their names really be blamed? While Fox’s attacks are to be expected, Ciaramella was just plain juvenile:
- “These are suit-and-tie white separatists—academic-sounding fellows who speak grimly about “preserving European culture” from the swarthy tide of egalitarianism and immigration.”
Right. Because egalitarianism and immigration are serving your precious conservatism real well these days.
- “The assumption is that if they dress nice, people will follow Spencer and his fellow travelers on their road to a white ethno-state where pasty people can listen to Jack Johnson records and play Frisbee in glorious racial homogeneity.”
The Washington Free Beacon did not fire Ciaramella for those hateful, derisive slurs against White people. If he described attendees at an NAACP conference of traveling down their road to a swarthy America where ashy people can listen to Lil Wayne albums and play basketball in glorious multiracial heterogeneity, he’d be gone. Would anyone be surprised if Ciaramella believes in “White Privilege?”
- “If the white race is counting on these folks for its survival, white people may be in trouble.”
Here he is engaging in his daily Passover Syndrome ritual: “A daily ritual among Passover Syndrome sufferers, as reflexive as washing their hands and brushing their teeth, is to smear an invisible layer of protective talismanic blackface on themselves. But until scientists develop full-body skin transplants, there’s nothing they’ll be able to do about it in practical terms. They’re pretty much stuck being white. Most nonwhites still see them, above all else, as white.”
- “However, there were a surprising number of younger people. When Spencer asked the crowd how many were 29 or younger, around a quarter to a third of the hands in the room shot up. That might be because of the steeply discounted “millennial” tickets—only $55 for those under 25, instead of the regular $185.”
Pulitzer-winning investigation on display here. Many of those Millennials paid $285 to join the Louis Andrews circle, which gained them access to the delicious dinner at the hotel on Friday night. I was there in the room with them. Very few of these Millennials attended with the help of the $55 tickets.
- “It’s an interesting thought: is it possible you aren’t in favor of white people forming self-governing racist enclaves because you are either uneducated or somehow intellectually inferior?”
There’s not a single liberal or conservative journalist who has even bothered to argue how the existence of a White ethno-state or a White racial enclave is “immoral.” Ciaramella is no exception. He takes it as self-evident that such an enclave is "immoral." As the two race-denying libertarians on Red Eye Radio like to say: Tell us where we’re wrong.
- “(A)nd then a second later you realize, oh, if the white man can’t walk into the Indian community, the Indian probably isn’t welcome in Spencer’s pasty preserve either.”
Again with the racial slur. This guy will never use “ashy” in any article to describe black people. He wouldn’t dare. But he can denigrate his own race with impunity and never get fired for it.
- “The conference featured plenty of guest speakers, all from the “alternative right,” as the loose coalition of antidemocratic and race-obsessed groups call themselves.”
So those Whites that Ciaramella hates so much? If we had our way, Barack Obama would not be the President today. Oh yes CJ, 58 percent of Whites voted for Mitt Romney. By contrast, every single non-white group voted over 70 percent for Obama. But keep on preaching the wonders of “democracy” even as the White population dwindles. You’ve gotten the country you deserve.
- “Perhaps my favorite speaker was Jack Donovan, a writer from the “manosphere” who railed against the feminization of society and pens sweaty odes to masculinity.”
Freudian slip, much? S.E. Cupp has your back, CJ. There’s no need to worry about Jack Donovan. (To be clear, Mr. Ciaramella is not being accused of anything here).
- “At one point, a large black security guard strolled through the crowd and stopped at a table to pick up some factsheets comparing crime among races. “Do you mind if I take these?” he asked a balding barbarian who was a foot shorter than him. ‘Oh, of course! Go right ahead.’”
Says the guy who would undoubtedly go Paris in a real fight (see 3:03 to 3:25).
To summarize, while both Fox and Ciaramella wrote vicious attack pieces about a think tank that seeks to preserve the existence and uniqueness of the people who founded Western Civilization, Ciaramella was particularly nasty. Fox can be forgiven because: A. She’s a liberal. B. She’s attractive. Ciaramella? He has no idea that White people make up the entirety of the conservative base. Without Whites, conservatism in any form dies.
The question now is when that base – and hopefully many more Whites – realizes that the conservatism represented by the likes of Ciaramella and the Washington Free Beacon is phony opposition, and that the National Policy Institute represents real opposition.
