AmRen - Peter Bradley: Chronicling Chronicles - important but mostly forgotten forerunner of the Alt-Right


An important but mostly forgotten forerunner of the Alt-Right.
The rise of the Alt-Right and the not-unrelated election of Donald Trump were certainly big stories of 2016. But decades before anyone had ever heard of an Alt-Right, veterans of the racial dissident movement had stressed issues such as immigration, demographics, the menace of Islam and crime, which have finally come to the fore and could define American politics for the foreseeable future. Hardly anyone cares about capital gains taxes or budget earmarks anymore.
Mr. Trump called for a border wall, deportations, and a ban on Muslim immigration, and Breitbart’s Steve Bannon helped do what legions of well-paid Republican strategists could not: defeat a Democrat in a national election by appealing (however indirectly) to white interests. ...
     Any friend of Sam Francis is a friend of mine, but I finally waved bye-bye to Chronicles after I read an editorial soon after 9-11 that seemed to say that doing anything about immigration was impossible. Although Chronicles didn't sell out like National Review, it sometimes seemed to sort of pride itself on valiantly intellectualizing on a sinking ship.
     As far as White nationalism, I noticed even someone with such intelligent eloquent common sense as radio host Kieth Alexander says that White nationalism "shouldn't even be attempted." Wow, not even attempted. At the same time his The Political Cesspool seems to want to harken back to the 1950s. Sounds good to me, but how would such a thing ever be accomplished with ever worsening demographics--at this point even if Whites miraculously starting having larger families?
