American Renaissance’s Jared Taylor Goes Full Anti-Semite

For years, Jared Taylor has led the move towards the politics of respectability for hardcore racists. With his Northeastern aristocratic twang and salt-n-pepper sideburns, he has made it his job for the last twenty years to spit out well-rehearsed talking points, making allegations about race and IQ, crime, and sexual “control.” With the creation of American Renaissance and the New Century Foundation, he has created the largest white nationalist meeting ground in the country, all based on a more middle-class and college-educated racist crowd.

While racist organizations of the past may have always been steeped in backwoods rumors and conspiracy theories, Taylor attempted to create a “straight line” for racist thinking. He attempted to validate guttural bigotry and stereotypes with trumped up “data,” taking every vile anti-black comment made through history and attempting to find some marginal study that could have results twisted to justify it. In this world it was “scientific thinking” that drove his movement, not just the myths and traditions of the fascist past.

The main evidence of this he could point to was that he, and his organization, were Jew-inclusive. Almost uniformly, racialist and white nationalist organizations are fiercely anti-Semitic. While the modern racist thinking has tried to use the language of evolutionary psychology, genetics, and criminal justice to support their vile ideas, the anti-Semitic rhetoric was a mysticism all its own. Based largely on bizarre conspiracy theories and misreadings of history, anti-Semitism was one of the key areas that signified an individual racist’s allegiance to a tradition of white supremacy.

 

And American Renaissance would have none of it.

Michael Levin, author of Why Race Matters, presented silly arguments about black mental inferiority, while Orthodox Rabbi Mayer Schiller talked about the need for racial nationalism and to oppose democracy and equality. Though few in numbers, there were almost always Jews in attendance at American Renaissance. This even resulted in confrontations with famous anti-Semites like David Duke, who were asked not to return after pressing speakers on the “Jewish Question.”

Taylor usually simplified the issue by saying that Jews “look white to me.” As American Renaissance became the center of the growing Alt Right, and they hosted the leading anti-Semitic writer today, Kevin McDonald, it seems that Jared Taylor has begun to open up about the anti-Semitism he avoided being associated with.

In a recent interview with the podcast The Darwin Digest, which is a podcast on the Right Stuff/the Daily Shoah “podcast network (It’s not a network, more of a collection of badly recorded banter),” Jared Taylor did his usual shtick about diversity, “racial differences,” and other well rehearsed distractions. While this was all down the line for Taylor, one line did stand out. When he was asked how the racial situation got to where it was, he finally admitted to the anti-Semitism that many have suspected was close under the surface.

A strong case can be made the extent to which Jewish intellectuals have undermined white racial consciousness, and I think there’s not doubt that a certain number of elite Jews have been very energetic in coming up with reasons to somehow denigrate any kind of white racial homogeneity or sense of integrity in European countries.

He also compared it to the suggestion that the universality of Christianity is “responsible” for the decline of “white racial consciousness.” That is also a common talking point among the anti-Christian sectors of the fascist Alt Right, which say that Christianity is a Jewish disease that destroys “ethnic religions” like Nordic paganism. He also plays on the notion, borrowed from Kevin McDonald, that white people have an inherent sense of egalitarian and “pathological altruism” baked into them through evolution. There is, like most of these claims, not evidence for this.

While Taylor may not be ready to “blame the Jews” for all of these issues, he is certainly stepping out in that direction in a way he never has before. White nationalists have often said that Taylor must be aware of the “Jewish question” and have chosen to avoid it for the benefit of American Renaissance. What it does prove, unequivocally, is that his own logic does not just come from “the science” but instead from a white nationalist and neo-Nazi narrative that fuels his worldview. It is not evidence that he draws on, but a script of racial struggle.

Phillippe Rushton, a race and IQ scientist who was largely disgraced in his field, is someone Taylor is often compared to. Rushton is, besides Richard Lynn, the most cited of the race researchers, and often tried to meekly pretend that it wasn’t racism, but just honest science. Off record, however, he often spoke about the Jews and their role in “undermining Western civilization,” a notion that certainly wasn’t embedded in his twin studies. Instead, it shows that his line of thinking has less to do with “uncomfortable truths” in science and more the reverse: he manipulates very minor data to fit in line with an ideology he believes very deeply in.

Taylor fits this bill as well, and we can expect to see him submit further and further to the anti-Semitic script as the Alt Right attempts to mainstream its hatred of Jews.

Reality Star Tila Tequila Appears on Fash the Nation, Blames Jews, Immigrants, and “Blacks”

For all its claims of discernment and elitism, the Alt Right will take just about anyone it can get.

We have covered the infamous D-list reality celebrity Tila Tequila in the past.  Several years ago, Tequila seemed to go off the deep end on her own website where she started posting Holocaust Denial rants, admiration for Hitler, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories claiming that the Jews of today are actually the parasitic Khazar race and not the Israelites of the Bible.  This is one of the more “out there” conspiratorial claims usually made by Christian Identity extremists, and for some reason this bi-sexual Asian woman is now allying herself with the furthest reaches of Nazism.

Her strange love for Hitler has garnered the most attention, with her beginning by posting a picture of herself dressed as a Nazi.  She has posted articles and comments discussing her celebration of Hitler, and as recent as Hitler’s birthday (4/20) this year(2016) she went to Twitter to say that Hitler was the “true king,” her soul mate, that he was the second coming of Christ, and that she was Hitler in a past life.  She went as far as to Photoshop herself into a picture sitting next to Hitler.

In the past she turned her own personal website into a troll farm for far-right Jew bashing, where any criticism was met with the vilest racial slurs straight out of Stormfront.  An example of this would be what she said of reality TV director James Marcus Howe, where she hurled the kind of insults you never would have expected.

GOD SEE’S(sic) YOU DIRTY FUCKING KIKES WORKING FOR THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN AND I HAVE RETURNED AS HIS MESSENGER!  TAKE HEED NOW BITCHES!

She often responded by calling people Jews and Kikes when commenters said she was being racist or attempted to point out that Hitler would admonish her for her bi-racial background.  She was eventually dropped from the reality show Big Brother in 2015 because of her pro-Hitler politics.

Over the years it has not gotten much better for Tequila as she desperately raises money online to pay rent and takes almost any appearance job she can get.  She came back into the news recently as she went on Twitter to say she also does not believe the earth is round, and that she joined rapper B.O.B. in calling NASA “globalist shills.”  The idea here is that NASA are a part of the anti-nationalist “new world order” that is destroying our racial and cultural identities with lies like the spherical Earth.  She has also roundly endorsed Donald Trump, which is an endorsement even the Trump campaign was not likely looking for.

Her anti-black racism has also garnered gossip recently as she continues to go on Twitter and say vulgar racist things about black people.  She has said that “blacks” pray to their “fried chicken God,” that the “coloreds” shop at Wal-Mart, and various other mockeries of having “affirmative action friends.”  It didn’t help when Radar Online revealed a text message she sent to the father of her child that read “Your daughter Briana is dating a n***er…why is this so prevalent in your family?”  She spends much of her time on Twitter tweeting at black artists asking why she isn’t allowed to use the N-word.

In an effort to one up herself, she has now appeared on one of the most popular white nationalist podcasts in the world.  Fash the Nation is the political podcast from The Right Stuff, the parent website of the Daily Shoah podcast.  It has now eclipsed the Daily Shoah in popularity, mainly because it spends three hours pretending they have a good grasp on American politics.  The podcast mainly discusses Donald Trump’s candidacy, but the hosts usually devolve into racist name calling and Trump worship, and it is clear that they are out of their league when it comes to even the most basic political analysis.

They occasionally have guests, and even an interview once in a while, and that is where Tila Tequila came in.

Many people might say that she would not know exactly what Fash the Nation was exactly, but right from the start it became clear that she not only knew what it and the Alt Right were, but she was also sympathetic.  While she labeled herself as Conservative, she said she was moving in the direct of the Alt Right.  She said that she was previously unaware of what was “really going on,” and then left Hollywood for Texas and began “trolling” online with conspiracy theorists.  She met Alt Right people online and then found that her community in Houston were reflecting what Alt Righters said, where non-white immigration had turned her neighborhood into an “unsafe ghetto.”

It seriously looks like a third world country out here.  And its not fair because my parents actually worked really hard to become, you know, middle class people…crime has really shot up, and it has turned really ghetto.  I can’t even take my daughter out anywhere without worry about, and then I have to think about, ‘ok, what areas can I migrate to to take her to a safer area.’  We shouldn’t be kicked out of our neighborhoods.

They avoided the fact that she was from an immigrant family, just like the immigrants she was blaming.  In reality, crime has not risen dramatically in the immigrant areas of Houston and the increases in crime rate that do happen are directly correlative to income inequality.

Tila quickly, and on her own, began moving into the Alt Right’s narrative about public housing vouchers and how the government is actually destroying white neighborhoods by “moving in” poor people of color.  She agreed that people of color shouldn’t be moved into white neighborhoods because they would destroy them.

It’s like they have taken Section 8 housing people and spread them into nice neighborhoods, to be equal, or whatever.  And its not cool because, sure, everyone deserves a chance to have a good life, or whatever, but its just not safe to mix certain types of—

She stopped herself in the middle of saying Mexican, which is again, strange given her own non-white ethnic background.  She repeatedly talked about how she was often the only “light skinned” person in these dangerous neighborhoods, and how she worries for her daughter’s safety anytime she was near dark skinned members of the community.  Most of this came with stuttering rants, barely coherent in their embarrassing fragments.  For an Alt Right community that celebrates elitism, this has to be the bottom of their own barrel.

They spent a great deal of time talking Donald Trump, where she supported the candidate’s plan to build a wall since “there are a bunch of invaders coming into our country.”  Her and the Fash the Nation hosts discussed the allyship between whites and Asians, who white nationalists often consider to be “second to whites” because of a perceived high natural intelligence.  They still say they don’t want a great deal of Asian immigration, which Tila agrees, saying “we didn’t come over here [to the U.S.] to bring the third world with us.”  The hosts do their best to keep Tila on their racist track, moving to international refugee policy.

While it may seem confusing for a neo-fascist podcast like Fash the Nation to have someone like Tila Tequila as a guest, especially since she is non-white, non-heterosexual, and having worked as a sex worker, it is part of their program.  What it shows more than anything is that these ideas are not just isolated t0 a white core, but can have allies throughout the culture.  It also shows the willingness by people on the Alt Right to pull any celebrity in that could possibly connect to their racialism, even if they are barely literate reality stars who think the Earth is flat.

Note: It should be noted clearly that we think there is nothing shameful about sex work, and believe that it is both “real work” and something that should be respected and defended.  The irony, however, is that those at The Right Stuff, the Daily Shoah, and Fash the Nation do not agree, and instead see sex work as decadent degeneracy.
