I am taking this opportunity to sadly renounce completely a wing of the Alt Left known as the Left Wing of the Alt Right.
Rabbit is probably the best known member of this wing, but he is actually one of the least offensive of them. In a way, I still like Rabbit a lot. His views on race are irrelevant to me, and his racial proposals are rather mild, mostly centering on reducing non-White immigration, which is actually not a bad idea.
True, he is a White nationalist, but he is a pretty mild one. He is more of a White separatist, and he emphatically states that he is opposed to throwing even one non-White out of the country. Instead he would like to find some uninhabited land somewhere to set up his White state. Or maybe make one in space. Or in Antarctica. This is how he thinks. He’s a bit out there you might say, but in a harmless and rather charming way.
Clearly he’s miles better than most all White nationalists, who are a pretty vicious breed.
I think Rabbit’s moderation stems from the fact that Rabbit is actually a liberal. He is a man of the Left. He is leftwing on almost all issues other than race. Other than on race, he’s as liberal or Left as I am. The Left is mostly about compassion and has a strong anti-racist bent. I can’t help but think that being on the Left all this time has affected Rabbit’s views, and this is why he is so mild and reasonable compared to the rest of his ilk. It’s just not like a leftwinger to be a vicious racist. And in fact, there are virtually no seriously racist people on the Left. I do know some racists with leftwing sympathies, but to a man, they all voted for Trump. Every single racist I know voted for Trump, even the ones who are practically socialists or even Communists. Race simply trumps everything else for these guys.
Also, Rabbit is the sole member of the Left Wing of the Alt Right who seems to be having buyer’s remorse over Trump. He stated on this site that the Trump honeymoon is over, and most of Trump’s Cabinet picks were pretty cringey. Of course! Who would find Trump’s Cabinet picks cringeworthy? Why, a liberal or leftwinger of course! Rabbit cannot help but notice that these Cabinet picks are catastrophic from a liberal or left point of view.
Trump is like your ultimate rightwing nightmare, Ronald Reagan on steroids. Trump is a radical rightwinger, and his Administration is already the most rightwing administration in maybe a century. Who was worse? Herbert Hoover? Trump is going to be much worse than his heir Reagan and he is already worse than George W. Bush, who committed election fraud to steal two elections in order to hold the Presidency for eight years.
The fact that Rabbit made these statements makes me feel good for him. His racial views are only a small part of his overall worldview. On everything else, he is quite to the left, in fact, he is even more leftwing than I am on some things. Like a true man of the Left, Rabbit is appalled by almost all of Trump’s nightmarish Cabinet picks.
However, most other folks on the Left Wing of the Alt Right continue to promote Trump. Abel Dean’s Alt Left group on Facebook is full of conservatives and Trump supporters. Even his top posters make posts bashing “progressives.” What? Silly rabbit, the Alt Left is progressive! When you bash progressives, you bash us, you idiot. As I have to reiterate endlessly for the terminally autistic, the Alt Left is a leftwing, progressive, liberal or Leftist movement. When you Alt Leftist fools attack liberals or the Left, you attack us! No Alt Leftist should ever attack the Left, progressives, liberals or Leftists. Any clown who does this is attacking himself.
Anyway, the Facebook Alt Left group is apparently the Left Wing of the Alt Right. There are a number of other folks calling themselves that. Fine. It’s a legitimate wing, one of the founding wings. However, 100% of the LWAR people are supporting Trump. Well, you cannot be in the Alt Left and support Trump. Nor may you support the US Republican Party. Nor may you support any US Republican for office, ever. If you do, you are out on your ass just like that. The #1 enemy of the Alt Left is the conservative movement in the US as embodied in Trump and the Republican Party. SJW gnats are far down on the list.
Until such time as the majority of this wing ceases support for Trump and better yet, soundly denounces him, I am officially renouncing this wing, and I want nothing to do with them until they quit acting up. Sadly, this includes Rabbit, but of all of the people on the LWAR, I have a small place in my heart set aside for him because I believe that in so many ways, his worldview is basically correct.
