Tila Tequila brings D-list celebrity glamour to Alt-Right conference in DC this weekend

Detail of Tila Tequila’s Twitter header

Tila Tequila is a bisexual former reality TV star of Vietnamese descent whose stage name incorporates the name of an alcoholic beverage made in Mexico. She’s also a Hitler-loving Alt-Right Trump fan who likes to joke about the Holocaust.

And so it’s perhaps less weird than it might seem at first glance that Tila spent the weekend at the annual National Policy Institute conference in Washington DC, a gathering of Alt-Rightists and fellow travelers, where she treated the attendees (and her Twitter followers) to Nazi salutes, anti-Semitic jokes, and an assortment of baffling pronouncements — ranging from an assertion that she’s an “alpha male” to a claim that she “willed Trump into [the] Presidency.”

Let’s take a look at some of Tila’s more, er, colorful Tweets from the convention.

It was a busy weekend for Tila, clearly, but she managed to find time for some anti-Semitic antics that she, at least, seems to have considered utterly hilarious.

She also posed with an assortment of Alt-Right personalities and fellow travelers, including “journalist” and beard-haver Chuck C. Johnson.

She lashed out at her critics:

And somehow managed to claim credit for Brexit and Trump’s electoral college win:

Apparently she’s taking lessons in reality-manipulation from Mike Cernovich and master persuader Scott Adams:

Given how this year has gone so far, I fully expect Donald Trump to name her to a cabinet position. Is there a Secretary of Delusional States?

Well at least she’s not trying to pretend she’s not a Nazi.

I remember seeing her on the top 10 “worst texans” list, which featured Paul Elam. This was about a year ago, back when associating with Nazi views was considered an automatic failure-to-ever-be-taken-seriously and clearly-an-immoral-and-indefensible-position. Oh how things have changed.

I have at long last a political news who is somewhat encouraging : in the primary in France, Sarkozy is third, which is an unexpectedly big defeat for him.

The Republican party in France (formerly UMP, formely RPR) is the “normal” right-wing party. It’s quite a bit less extrem than the US one, but it have its big share of racists and bigots. Sarkozy mostly represented thoses bigots and the people in favor of an alliance with the far right, and was also very heavily involved in a lot of illegal stuff.

His defeat is also a good thing in that in the next national election, about any other candidate had better odds of beating the far right. It’s far from won yet, of course, but it’s a ray of hope.

Tequila is a fool. In the right wing fantasy world she’s shilling for the only role open for her would be as someone’s sex slave, or as forced labour. Most likely it would be “Gee, Tila, thanks for the support. Now get the hell out of America, you aren’t white!”

It would be lovely to believe that all members of a discriminated-against group are rational about what helps or hinders their position. Unfortunately human beings can act in really horrible ways, regardless of their gender, race or sexual orientation. I think we’ve just stumbled across an example.

I’m saying nothing about Kanye, mind. The name never even crossed my lips. (I could wax lyrical about how economic privilege can blind a person to many things, but I shan’t, because I haven’t ruled out in my own mind the possibility he just doesn’t have the reasoning skills the Good Lord* gave him.)

It confuses the hell out of me that the guy who pointed out that George Bush doesn’t care about black people recently told his fans that he doesn’t care about black people. It probably shouldn’t, since Kanye has an ego the size of Uluru and would lose a battle of wits to a mouldy gym sock, but it does.

Gods above, I haven’t heard from Tila Tequila in years it seems.

I don’t suppose it would be too naive of me to consider this a grab for attention? I mean, she hasn’t been relevant in ages. : /

I do remember people being shitty to her about her bisexuality though, which was sad to see. People don’t deserve to get shit on for being bisexual, and it happens even in the LGBT+ community.

I don’t think that’s naive at all. I mean, the woman was originally famous for having a ridiculous number of MySpace friends. You may very well be right. The thing is, being a Nazi for attention is no less harmful than being a Nazi because of your sincerely-held beliefs.

I can’t help thinking that there has to be some kind of “collaborator” mind set in psychology. Like, she knows she’ll still be abused and mostly powerless, and end up as the commandant’s sex slave. But she’ll maybe get more to eat and, as a bonus, she’ll maybe get to wield some sort of incredibly petty power and abuse the noncollaborators in her turn. Maybe she thinks being bi will be an asset because the commandant will have her help him rape the “real” scum. And she’ll be safe from the gas chambers. It seems like a really broken kind of self-image.

Paradoxical Intention - Resident Cheeseburger Slut

@Belladonna: It’s pretty much just the nazi version of “I’m a Cool Girl who isn’t like Other Girls!”

She’ll continue to be the Cool Girl until she says or does something The Guys don’t like, and then she’s just like those Other Girls and will be condemned, chewed up, and spit out.

All it will take is one bit of human decency or compassion from her.

Kanye is richer now and is married to someone even richer than he is (I’m pretty sure). Any care he had for other people washed away in a wave of cash. How shit is. We still got Beyonce tho!

Tila, well… disappointing but not unexpected. This has been going on for some time. I’d hoped she’d have gotten beyond it by now *shrug*

weirwoodtreehugger: communist bonobo

Tila Tequila has been like this for awhile. Her social media has been filled with similar delusional talk for a long time. Ever since she had a drug overdose and brain aneurysm a few years ago. She has a young daughter and the father is (last I heard) suing for custody because he doesn’t believe she’s mentally stable enough to be a fit parent. I don’t really think she’s trolling, I think she’s probably unwell. I don’t really comfortable mocking her.

I hope I’m not veering too close to internet diagnosis land, but similar to the break down Amanda Bynes had a couple of years ago, there are some really obvious red flags that she’s dealing with mental health issues and it’s not cool for the whole internet to be making fun.

My comment maybe sounded like mocking, but the thing I said at the end is really what I was trying to get at most. Whether it’s internalizing that you will be victimized, anyway, and wanted to grab at some kind of power in a victim hierarchy, or what PI said about being one of the cool girls not like other girls (which, to be honest, I’m not sure is essentially different from wanting to climb to the top of some kind of victim hierarchy), or as you said, that she may suffer from severe mental health issues, I just looked at this and thought, “Here is a woman who seems to have an incredibly broken self-image.”

Didn’t the perpetrator of the Isla Vista massacre also think he could alter reality by the power of his mind? As I recall he tried to use it to win the lottery, with about as much success as you’d expect. Ms Tequila is falling back on the time-honoured principle of predicting/manipulating things that have already happened, which makes it a whole lot easier to claim victory.

I feel exactly the same way. Thank you for expressing that so well. I hope it will suffice to say (and not break the rules) that although I cannot diagnose her, I just feel sorry for her and I fear for her and her child. She just makes me sad, not angry. I think bringing her up is relevant though, it shows that these people (big surprise) don’t respect anyone or anything and are willing to exploit people for their own gain.

Heh. Looks like Tila & Co. got chased out of the restaurant where they were holding their little shindig:

On the 18th of November, the “suit-and-tie Nazi” National Policy Institute (NPI) attempted to hold a quiet dinner meeting in Washington, DC on the subject of white supremacy at an Italian restaurant on Wisconsin Ave called Maggiano’s. Anti-fascist protesters stormed the restaurant and got most of the way up the stairs to the second floor where NPI was meeting. A few got in via the elevator. The Washington Post is reporting that “a foul smelling liquid” was sprayed on NPI President Richard Spencer, notorious for peddling “white nationalism.”

One security guard or NPI member (not sure which) pushed back hard trying to force activists back down the stairs. He did so even though his pushing caused the wooden rail on the staircase to bow and bend under the weight of people being forced against it. Due to the height of the staircase this constituted acting in reckless disregard of human life, though anyone familiar with the history of fascism and Naziism would know this is par for the course.

Eventually activists withdrew to the outside of the restaurant, with many of the orginary, non-Nazi supporting diners on the first floor bursting out in applause for the performance of the protesters in confronting the Nazis upstairs in this tense time of Donald Trump. Outside, anti-fascists kept up a noisy dance party with a sound system,pots and pans, and other noisemakers until NPI slinked out a back exit. One who left early had a police officer summon a cabdriver who was then forced to give the Nazi a ride. Had he refused in front of police he would have risked an expensive ticket under a regulation normally used against cabdrivers who refuse rides to African-Americans.

Originally the Nazis were going to meet at The Hamilton, a hotel downtown but the Hamilton refused to host NPI after finding out who they really are. They then tried to throw off antifascists by claiming they would meet at Trump Hotel at 7PM to walk elsewhere. About 60 people held a protest at Trump Hotel, but they started at 6PM with more than enough time to be redirected when the true meetup point was found:Friendship Heights Metro. From there the Nazis were tracked to Maggiano’s, which one protesters said should be renamed “Mussolini’s” for hosting fascists after being clearly told by the protesters just who they are.

Schadenfreude is served, meine Damen und Herren.

I look at all these people on the Alt-right and I thank god I don’t have whatever psychological makeup that makes them want to join that shitpot of a movement.

Nothing sounds like a bigger losing proposition than joining with an inherently hierarchical, oppressive and iron rigid ideology like Nazism.

Do all of these idiots imagine that they’ll wind up at the top of the pyramid? Double so for the non-white non-cis members of the movement.

These are a few days old, and someone has probably already posted them buuut…

The NSA Chief Says Russia Hacked the 2016 Election. Congress Must Investigate.

This was a stunning statement that has echoed other remarks from senior US officials. He was saying that Russia directly intervened in the US election to obtain a desired end: presumably to undermine confidence in US elections or to elect Donald Trump—or both. Rogers was clearly accusing Vladimir Putin of meddling with American democracy. This is news worthy of bold and large front-page headlines—and investigation. Presumably intelligence and law enforcement agencies are robustly probing the hacking of political targets attributed to Russia. But there is another inquiry that is necessary: a full-fledged congressional investigation that holds public hearings and releases its findings to the citizenry.

Russian hackers targeted Arizona election system

Hackers targeted voter registration systems in Illinois and Arizona, and the FBI alerted Arizona officials in June that Russians were behind the assault on the election system in that state.

The bureau described the threat as “credible” and significant, “an eight on a scale of one to 10,” Matt Roberts, a spokesman for Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan (R), said Monday. As a result, Reagan shut down the state’s voter registration system for nearly a week.

It turned out that the hackers had not compromised the state system or even any county system. They had, however, stolen the username and password of a single election official in Gila County.

The Arizona incident is the latest indication of Russian interest in U.S. elections and party operations, and it follows the discovery of a high-profile penetration into Democratic National Committee computers. That hack produced embarrassing emails that led to the resignation of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and sowed dissension on the eve of Hillary Clinton’s nomination as the party’s presidential candidate.

Until now, countries such as Russia and China have shown little interest in voting systems in the United States. But experts said that if a foreign government gained the ability to tamper with voter data — for instance by deleting registration records — such a hack could cast doubt on the legitimacy of U.S. elections.

I don’t like this.

I saw her tweets yesterday, and in amongst the many comments were alt-righters gleefully celebrating “triggered liberals”. I never thought I’d see Nazi salutes becoming standard public fare, not in my lifetime. It’s fucking heartbreaking.

I don’t wish her any harm whatsoever, and I hope she comes out of this unhurt, but I find it difficult to feel sympathy for her, whatever struggles she’s had. Whether the nazi shit is serious, or for ‘lulz’, doesn’t ultimately matter to people on the receiving end.

In my opinion,

they don’t think that they’re going to be at the top. It’s not about them having personal power, it’s about being in a hierarchy that values their shitty opinions. They don’t care whether they personally get to decide who goes to the internment camps, so long as those uppity-so-and-so’s finally get what’s coming to them. They don’t care if people are suffering, that’s literally the point of the exercise – demonstration that my side is right by enforcing punishments on the other side.

People have several innate drives, one of the big ones is a Drive to Defend. This applies to defending values, along with defending people, places, things, etc. This drive to defend isn’t often expressed in modern society, and its expressions are usually subtle – victory by internet argument, or trolling, or grumbly under-the-breath comments directed at someones’ turned back. The neo-fascist movement is providing people with the opportunity to express this drive by the bucketful.

They don’t care if their life goes to hell and the economy collapses, so long as they can finally show those other guys who’s the boss. That’s really all there is to it, I think.

But, you know, in good news, the Moana soundtrack is out and it’s amazing and awesome. You need to search Moana (Original Motion at least on Spotify to find it, if you use that, however. The deluxe edition has demos and instrumental versions of songs.

Hey guys, this isn’t on the Tila Tequila business but I really do need help with something. This is the kind of article that’s been driving me abosolutely crazy when it gets posted on FB or (wherever):

http://slatestarcodex.com/2016/11/16/you-are-still-crying-wolf/

I’ll admit I wasn’t even able to finish the article because of how angry it made me. After years of thinking I was good at discourse I now realize I am terrible at it. I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me analyze this in a way that if I had to talk to someone like this I could hold the conversation. I know I couldn’t now. The racists I at least understand, the apologists are still just totally baffling to me. I cannot understand this and I just started crying with impotent liberal rage. (I also think it’s worth noting, that a disclaimer was posted by the person who shared saying please be careful who you share this with, to avoid hate crimes by the “bad apples” out there).

Yes, I am asking for validation from my hugbox, but I really am tired of reading this shit and not knowing how to respond, so I hope some of you all who like doing that type of thing can help. Thanks.

I'll go look in a little bit!

EDIT: havent’ read it all, obv, but from a skim of it? Author is cherry-picking things that agree with their thesis and ignoring things which do not. There are *reams* of evidence on Trumps’ bigotry and racism; author says “you can believe he’s lying but here’s what his official platform is”. This ignores all of the actual things he’s said in favour of the polished statements his party/campaign has put together.
