Jay Batman’s articles crystallized for me something I have seen on the rise for the last year or so.
In American society, and to a larger extent Europe, Canada and Australia, you’re seeing the rise of a movement that is best described as the “alternative right.” These guys are radical traditionalists, who through the election of a black president to the presidency in the United States, the rise of Hispanic and Muslim populations in Europe and America, have woken up to see a Western society that is no longer exclusively Western.
These guys may have just made snarky comments when George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan added women to the government or held demonstrations when Bush and Reagan opened the doors for immigrants but Barack Obama’s presidency, complete with a Latina on the Supreme Court and a black woman at the highest echelon of cultural authority telling them that they’re eating a crappy diet was just too much to take. Something had to be done.
That something is what you are seeing with websites like Richard Spencer’s Alternative Right, These guys aren’t prudent conservatives in the mold of Wayeed Ali who seek “organic change” over “forced change.” They’re radicals that want disruptive and forced change back to the past. Jay Batman fits smugly among these cretins, with his language alone fitting him squarely in the midst of these neo-fascists:
The violent torpedo of truth that is anarcho-misogyny continues to detonate in the minds of feminists and left-anarchists who simply can’t handle the reality that their ideology is a pale imitation of statism, less concerned with promoting equality than a standard of exceptionalism for women as a gender or a sex. Let’s take a look at some of the reviews offered up by the other side, shall we?
I’ve read and done research on the people who comprise the Alternative Right and they are the creepiest guys I’ve ever seen. I’m preparing a book on the subject. Richard Spencer has spoken fondly of more than a few things that decent people look at with disgust. Here’s a taste:
Yes. Taki is a man who resides in a couple of different worlds. Instinctually, Taki is a “paleoconservative” or “traditionalist” . . . or perhaps I should say “fascist” (I, of course, mean that as a compliment. I always have this image of him wearing a Wehrmacht helmet while skiing in Switzerland, as he related in one of his columns.) At the same time, he’s also connected with the fashionable New York scene (which is made up of people who are far cooler than I, that’s for sure.) And though in his 70s, he has the energy—and libido—of a 25-year-old. The “Taki legend” is definitely true. I remember in 2008 eating dinner with him at the Waverly Inn alongside a number of his old cronies and various pretty girls. It was definitely not your average night at the movies . . . I digress.
I suggest Jay Batman contact Spencer. Spencer loves publicity so he shouldn’t be hard to get a hold of. Batman will fit in like a glove with him.
