Needless to say, Pepe has nothing to worry about, because this advice will remain perpetually unrequited.
However, as someone who comments on AR way too much for his own good, I want to reply to something he said here.
First, here’s his only mention of Jared Taylor by name:
The Left has demonized and censored people who speak about taboo issues respectfully and seriously. NYU didn’t let James Watson speak last week and say what you want about Jared Taylor, he’s certainly has a respectful and serious tone. So if you’re going to get ostracized for having un-PC views no matter how you present them, why not be an asshole about it?
And now here’s where I’m going to get a little defensive, though I should add the caveat that I’m not doing it with official imprimatur, nor am I doing it from a position of having skin in the game:
The good news is, the alt-right in its broadest definition isn’t in fact to any degree traditional white nationalists. Those guys are in there, along with intellectuals naturally drawn to taboo subjects, but the American Renaissance types, the Richard Spencers of the world, consider much of the alt-right as it exists today to be “unserious”.
Except WNs are part of the alt-right, and furthermore, WNs seem to think, or wish, that “white nationalism” and “alt-right” were perfect synonyms, and they’re upset that it’s actually not. As much as Jared Taylor dislikes the term “alt-right,” he is begrudgingly accepting it to apply both to him personally and to AR as an organization. It’s therefore a contradiction in terms for a constituent person and organization of the alt-right to dismiss the larger tendency it is a part of to be unserious. And I don’t think that JT has a dismissive standoffish attitude about the more irreverent provinces of the alt-right continent; what I think he thinks is that they have their role, and a serious cerebral outlet like AR has its role, and neither should get much mixed up with each other’s proclivities. As long as JT and AR has been going at it, since 1990, the tactic that seems to get results is the “being an asshole about it,” as Milo said. This means that the “assholes” have their role and deserve credit for being the secret sauce. But, we also have to remember that when the media want someone to put a camera or microphone in front of, they don’t call people on 4chan, they call Jared Taylor. Mainstream marketable erudite polite PR-friendly neighborly types are unquestionably essential to any movement that seeks long-term tenacity and viability.
A huge proportion of the alt-right today are Millennials, ranging from teenagers up to the younger members of Generation X.
I don’t know about that. Someone analyzed all the prominent alt-right Twitter accounts, and at least for those who provide enough age information, the results are that they are almost entirely white men between 40 and 60. I do think that the date of November 6, 1966 is important, because if you were born after that date, you never could have possibly cast a vote for Ronald Reagan for any public office. And we’re coming up very quickly to the 50th anniversary of that date, meaning that we’re coming up on a situation where all possible Reagan voters alive will be over a half-century old, and most, significantly older. I also think that 50 is a fairly clear but not perfect line of demarcation between alts and normies; if you’re younger, and you’re a white rightist, you tend to be alt-right, while if you’re older, you’re probably a normiecon (Reagan-Limbaugh style lamestream conservative). I think the two observations are related somehow, they’re not a coincidence.
If, by “alt-right,” Milo means exclusively the internet’s “asshole” brigade, and he seems to intimate that in his speech, then I do think that it consists of people who are Catalano and younger.
