The last time we checked in on alt-right gun enthusiast Christopher Cantwell, the infamous “crying Nazi” arrested on weapons charges after the debacle in Charlottesville last summer, he was battling online with fellow alt-rightists angry that he had agreed to become an informant for the FBI — which he claimed was part of an ingenious master plan to give the FBI dirt on antifascist activists.
Still, the attacks directed at him by fellow racists don’t seem to have diminished his own enthusiasm for an alt-right white ethnostate. Cantwell, out on bond, is still spewing out racist nonsense on his internet radio show. But it’s what Cantwell, a former contributor to antifeminist hate site A Voice for Men, is saying about women that is truly astonishing.
Let’s start with the racism. In a rambling diatribe posted on his site earlier this month, Cantwell rails against the US intervening further in Syria, warning Trump that
No matter how many wars you wage for the Jews, no matter how many sons and daughters you give them, they will always oppose your efforts to Make America Great Again, because subversion runs through their veins.
Waxing apocalyptic, he warns of the race war to end all race wars.
We are on the brink of planetary racial cataclysm the likes of which the world has never seen, and from which we may never recover. The white race has been overrun in Europe and the United States. If we were to defeat Russia militarily, what sizable homeland would whites have remaining? …
White power has become a dirty phrase in the modern political lexicon, and that is exceedingly unfortunate, because it is precisely that power which has made civilization possible. We may well be nearing the point at which that power fades from history, and the savagery we have sacrificed so much to stave off eclipses the whole of the Earth.
No racist dogwhistles for Cantwell; he just straight up blares an airhorn while doing a Nazi salute.
Speaking of which:
Adolf Hitler was not some madman bent on mass murder for his own entertainment. He recognized a growing danger to the whole of humanity, and he resolved that he would stop at nothing to protect us from that threat.
However hair-raising Cantwell’s remarks on Hitler are, he isn’t particularly original in his racism. It’s when he starts talking about women that things begin to get really, er, interesting.
In the comments to the post I’ve been quoting, Cantwell found himself in an argument with Radio Aryan head boy “Sven Longshanks” on the best way to make sure there are enough women to go around in their future white ethnostate. Cantwell, well aware that the current alt-right movement is just a tad male-heavy, suggests that maybe, just maybe, they should think about allowing some non-white ladies in to their imaginary white utopia, for breeding purposes.
Imagine we manage to pull off our political migration and secede Maine and New Hampshire for white nationalists. We shockingly enough find ourselves in a situation that resembles our conferences, in that the vast majority of participants are male, creating a dangerous gender disparity which threatens the stability of our nation.
HOW WILL WE MAKE THE WHITE BABIES WITHOUT THE WHITE LADIES BECAUSE EVEN THE RACIST WHITE LADIES HATE US?
Cantwell has a somewhat out-of-the-box solution:
We update our immigration policy to permit women, but not men, of less than perfect genetic integrity into the country. You wouldn’t want to flood the place with negresses …
… but say you let half asian or half latina women come into the country, creating a gender disparity in the opposite direction, and legalize polygyny.
And then it’s time to make the babies!
Most of Cantwell’s colleagues on the racist right would see this as “white genocide,” given that the children of mixed-race couples are, by definition, also mixed-race. But Cantwell sees this sort of “race-mixing” as the solution to “white genocide.”
Cantwell even considers setting aside his anti-abortion beliefs so the future inhabitants of his imaginary ethnostate will be able to protect themselves from the specter of not-quite-white-enough men.
We further institute a sex selective abortion policy, so that the only male children allowed to be born are of sufficiently pure lineage.
To say that this would not produce people as white as me inside of a few generations is just plain untrue. We are absolutely capable of breeding out undesirable traits through intelligent eugenic practices, but we need to think about it instead of, dare I say it, purity spiraling.
Er, isn’t a white ethnostate pretty much the ultimate incarnation of “purity spiralling?”
I do not take any of this lightly, and I do not think it ideal, but you might recall that I opened up the show concerned that yet another Jew provoked war between white countries threatened our very existence. I genuinely fear that we are on the brink of extinction, and intelligently depriving non-white males of breeding opportunities, while maximizing our own reproductive success, is a dirty tactic of race war which our enemies have made spectacular use of.
To Cantwell, evidently, women are little more than ambulatory “breeding opportunities.” He seems to have mistaken The Handmaid’s Tale for a how-to manual.
This sort of emotional dedication to immediate racial purity, in my opinion, threatens the survival of our race by putting principles ahead of practical necessity. Women are territory, and non-whites are conquering us by conquering our women.
I’ll just repeat that last bit, because woah:
Women are territory, and non-whites are conquering us by conquering our women.
If we refuse to retaliate in kind, we are making the same error that libertarians and constitutionalists make when trying to deal with the Left. We are refusing to wield the most powerful weapon of the conflict, our own dicks, and we thereby forfeit the fight.
Yes, that’s right. He really did just say “the most powerful weapon of the conflict, our own dicks.”
Is Cantwell serious about all of this? Probably not when it comes to the “sex selective abortion policy.” But he seems to believe the rest of his nonsense. I have no doubt that he sees women as little more than “breeding opportunities” and considers his dick to be “the most powerful weapon of the conflict.” Because of course. For guys like this, it always comes back to their dicks.
However horrifying all this is, I have detected a small flaw in Cantwell’s plan.
If the alt-right is so grotesquely misogynistic that it can’t even convince racist white women to come to its conferences and demonstrations, how on earth would they manage to convince mixed-race women to come to the Nazi Republic of Maine as “breeding opportunities” for men who think that women like them are basically impure “mongrels?” I can’t imagine many mixed-race women, no matter how desperate, would jump at the opportunity to become some sort of brood mare sister wife living in a cabin in the Maine woods with some random dude who likes dressing up as Hitler.
These proud knights of the master race aren’t always so good at thinking things through, are they?
