Welcome to Fash the Nation’s exclusive introduction to the Alt Right! If you were recently disillusioned by Gavin McInnes and his pals, if you are fed up that your MAGA hat provokes verbal (or physical) confrontations in public, or if you just wonder why there are so many smirking green frogs on social media these days, this is the place for you. Red Pill 101 is an ongoing essay series that explains the difference between Alt Right ideas and conservative GOP rhetoric. If you already know why Republicans constantly lose important battles to the Left, share this series with friends and loved ones who don’t want to be trapped in the CNN thought prison anymore.
Red Pill #3: MULTICULTURALISM
If you spend any time around talk radio or conservative commentary, you are probably familiar with the truism that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality. Smug conservatives seem to believe that their principles will prevent reality from laying a finger on them. Well, the Alt Right is what happens when reality mugs a conservative again. Repeated psychological assaults, depending on one’s level of social conditioning, can either turn you back to meaningless platitudes or provoke a new stage of intellectual growth. Early red pills are not easy to accept, and giving up cherished illusions drives many optimistic conservatives into a Kübler-Ross grief cycle. Abandoning equality is met with denial, race realism inspires anger, and criticizing multiculturalism provokes bargaining. “I’ll run campaign ads in Spanish, just please let them vote for me!“
Oh, how the GOP loves to oppose affirmative action and “reverse racism” while clinging to the diverse tapestry of the “real” America! Next time you hear a pundit praising the imaginary constituency of moderate Muslims, hardworking Mexicans, and freedom loving Somalians as model citizens, recognize that this is no rational opinion but the incoherent rambling of a disturbed psyche. If the GOP denies the potential Americanness of foreigners who are interested in coming the USA, that might lead to awkward questions about the value of foreigners who are already here. When any politician asserts the value of multiculturalism, you can cut through the BS by asking at every turn, “Does this benefit our country or my nation?” Citizens of a country only share a stamp on their passport; members of a nation are related by birth. We have already discussed race differences, so just remember that multiculturalism is the belief that paperwork is more significant than millennia of shared ancestry and genetic kinship.
Paperwork Americanism is so ridiculous that no one defends it openly. Instead, pop culture and entertainment are enlisted to sneak the idea into people’s heads when they are least on their guard. Films like Green Card, Gran Torino, Million Dollar Arm, and McFarland, USA link multiculturalism to romance, family, and sports to produce sympathy by association. Hollywood works hard to prevent the public from learning anything from realistic portrayals of multiculturalism. This is particularly important when beloved classics are adapted for the big screen. Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings was almost the stuff of SPLC nightmares. The heroes are too White, and the way they battle the forces of metaphorical and literal darkness is pretty racist. What Jackson cut from Tolkien’s original is even more telling. Tolkien negatively depicts refugees fleeing their war-torn homelands for a better life:
“[T]alking of distant events and telling news of a kind that was becoming only too familiar. There was trouble away in the South, and it seemed that the Men who had come up the Greenway were on the move, looking for lands where they could find some peace. The Bree-folk were sympathetic, but plainly not very ready to take a large number of strangers into their little land. One of the travelers, a squint-eyed ill-favoured fellow, was foretelling that more and more people would be coming north in the near future.
‘If room isn’t found for them, they’ll find it for themselves. They’ve a right to live, same as other folk,’ he said loudly.
The local inhabitants did not look pleased at the prospect.”
Book 1, Chapter 9: At the Sign of the Prancing Pony
Just one year of living in a multicultural society destroys social trust and brings normal life to a virtual standstill:
“Things were far from well… Business was not even fair, it was downright bad. ‘No one comes nigh Bree now from Outside,’ he said. ‘And the inside folks, they stay at home mostly and keep their doors barred. It all comes of those newcomers and gangrels that began coming up the Greenway last year, as you may remember; but more came later. Some were just poor bodies running away from trouble; but most were bad men, full o’ thievery and mischief. And there was trouble right here in Bree, bad trouble. Why, we had a real set-to, and there were some folk killed, killed dead!'”
Book 6, Chapter 7: Homeward Bound
If your moderate friends complain about mind numbing airport security or unpronounceable holidays on the school calendar, kindly remind them that these are integral features of multiculturalism, not unfortunate side effects. Tolkien is not done yet. His lovable hobbits engage in a deadly race war to expel the invaders of their homeland. Traitorous hobbits are spared because of their race, while men are directly targeted for death or exile. The dialogue could be dropped right into a Trump campaign ad:
‘Fight?’ said Frodo. ‘Well, I suppose it may come to that. But remember: there is to be no slaying of hobbits, not even if they have gone over to the other side… No hobbit has ever killed another on purpose in the Shire, and it is not to begin now…
‘But if there are many of these ruffians,’ said Merry, ‘it will certainly mean fighting. You won’t rescue the Shire, just by being shocked and sad, my dear Frodo.’
‘Who are you, and what d’you think you’re doing?’ said the ruffian leader. Farmer Cotton looked at him slowly. ‘I was just going to ask you that,’ he said. ‘This isn’t your country, and you’re not wanted.’
Book 6, Chapter 8: The Scouring of the Shire
It is tempting to dismiss lessons from fiction. After all, Lord of the Rings is just a fairy tale written by a philologist (feel that comfortable denial creeping back in?) . Tolkien was not trained in sociology, so it did take a few decades for noted scholars Robert Putnam and Samuel Huntington to independently confirm all of his assertions. Putnam proved that diversity is inherently toxic, that it destroys social trust and reduces community engagement. Huntington predicted the rise of White identity politics in reaction to the social decay that multiculturalism brings with it. If anyone tells you they don’t like White identity politics or the Alt Right, remind them that these things are only necessary in diverse countries, not in homogeneous nations.
Conservatives can whine about the Alt Right, but they have no real solution for multiculturalism because they have accepted the lie that diversity is our strength. Republicans are now poised to abandon the Founding Fathers in order to appease Antifa because the immigration system of Washington and Jefferson was explicitly limited to White persons of good character. Modern conservatives would rather endure the slow death of multiculturalism while begging CNN not to call them racists than actually conserve anything. The Alt Right does not pretend that Hispanics, Asians, and Muslims are part of the historic American nation. It has taken centuries of coercion and strife for closely related Europeans to partially blend into an American nation, and the only way to make America more diverse is to destroy European families and tear down the society that they built. The GOP has been standing by, watching this happen, but they are beginning to start helping the destroyers. The Alt Right is committed to reversing multiculturalism by restricting immigration, revoking visas, and ultimately making the country look like the nation that built it.
Hopefully you are now ready to move to the next stage of red pill grief. Unfortunately, we cannot go directly from bargaining to acceptance, because there is one form of multiculturalism that was part of America before the United States even existed, one that no change to immigration laws can solve. Gird up your loins; we have to talk about the most depressing topic of all: race relations between Blacks and Whites.
