Truth Revolt is a useful news site; many of the stories it features are from a truly conservative perspective, and pro-white as well. The comments section is not much different from what you’d see on Amren.com, and I used to contribute my own comments…
Until I was suddenly banned. It took a while to figure out why I was banned, but now I know which of my comments aroused their ire:
Well… it’s true that Republicans are evil. The vast majority of them are cuckservatives.
Truth Revolt reflects the views of David Horowitz:
The David Horowitz Freedom Center is unique among conservative think tanks whose emphasis is on public policy and institutional reform in that it sees its role as that of a battle tank, geared to fight a war that many still don’t recognize. For 27 years, since its founding in 1988, the Center has been warning that the political left has declared war on America and its constitutional system, and is willing to collaborate with America’s enemies abroad and criminals at home to bring America down. For most of those years the Center was a voice crying in the wilderness with few willing to recognize the threat from the enemy within, a fifth column force that was steadily expanding its influence within the Democratic Party. With the election of a lifetime radical to the White House in 2008, the perceptions of conservatives began to change. But the Center remains unique as an organization dedicated to the war and to developing strategies to win it.
But Horowitz’s “Freedom Center” draws the line in allowing an explicit white identity. Back in 2002, his Frontpagemag website republished (with some omissions) Amren’s article on the Wichita Massacre. He wrote this disclaimer at the time:
July 15, 2002
In the editorial I wrote to accompany today’s lead story on the Wichita Massacre, I said “In the present atmosphere of racial hypocrisy, the mere expression of concern over attacks on white people would in itself make an individual a target for racial witch-hunters.” I could also have said that publishing a story from the American Renaissance newsletter would do the same.
The American Renaissance group is a creation of Jared Taylor, author of a pioneer book of political incorrectness on race called Paved With Good Intentions. Taylor is a very smart and gutsy individualist, but he is also a man who has surrendered to the multicultural miasma that has overtaken this nation and is busily building a movement devoted to white identity and community. We do not share these agendas. What I mean by “surrendering” is that Taylor has accepted the idea that the multiculturalists have won. We are all prisoners of identity politics now. If there is going to be Black History Month and Chicano Studies then there should be White History Month and White Studies. If blacks and Mexicans are going to regard each other as brothers and the rest of us as “Anglos,” then whites should regard each other as brothers and others as — well, … others. Within the multicultural framework set by the dominant liberalism in our civic culture, Taylor’s claim to a white place at the diversity table certainly makes sense. But there is another option and that is getting rid of the table altogether and going back to the good old American ideal of E Pluribus Unum — “out of many one.” Not just blacks and whites and Chicanos, but Americans. Jared Taylor is a very intelligent and principled man. But I believe he is mistaken on this matter, and even if he is right I would rather fight against the multicultural behemoth and be on the losing side than embrace a false faith and win.
There are many who would call Jared Taylor and his American Renaissance movement “racist.” If the term is modified to “racialist,” there is truth in the charge. But Taylor and his Renaissance movement are no more racist in this sense than Jesse Jackson and the NAACP. In my experience of Taylor’s views, which is mainly literary (we have had occasion to exchange opinions in person only once), they do not represent a mean-spirited position. They are an attempt to be realistic about a fate that seems to have befallen us (which Taylor would maintain was inevitable given the natural order of things). But Jared Taylor is no more “racist” in this sense than any university Afro-centrist or virtually any black pundit of the left. He is not even racist in the sense that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are racist. He is — as noted — a racialist, which FrontPageMag.com is not.
Even in 2002 it was naive to believe that Americans could somehow rise above their ethnic differences and become one people. A lot has happened since then, and I doubt that many of Frontpage, or Truth Revolt, readers share this optimism. It’s an optimism that has become more of a rigid orthodoxy, oblivious to the facts on the ground.
By banning the word “cuckservative,” Horowitz is engaging in his own form of political correctness. He (or his moderators) seem to believe that by banning explicit expressions of a social malady, the malady will go away. In reality, such thinking is little different than a belief in magic. There are Orthodox Jews who will not let the word “cancer” escape from their lips; they believe that mentioning it by name can cause it to materialize. Apparently, the establishment Left, including Horowitz in this case, are of a similar opinion when it comes to racial taboos and hypocrisy.
In contrast, seekers of truth go out of our way to coin words that accurately depict reality – then we use them.
Republicans fear truth-words, because they reveal fundamental flaws/contradictions in their ideology. In so doing, they have created a vast chasm between the Republican elite and the white masses who vote for them. I believe that the same chasm exists between Horowitz (and his moderators) and most of those who read, and comment on, his websites. Sometimes a shepherd needs to stop what he’s doing and learn something from his flock.
The views of Horowitz and company are not that different from the views of explicit pro-whites, such as Jared Taylor, myself and many readers of this blog. I hope that, over time, we can work together for our common interests – which happen to coincide with the interests of humanity as a whole.
