Towards A Kinder, Gentler Alt-Right
Submitted by Melinda Santa Cruz
Before the Alt-Right movement can grow, the general public needs to know exactly what it stands for. After Charlottesville, the Alt-Right was claiming a victory while the media was going wild with claims of white supremacy and murder. Commentators like Judge Jeanine Pirro were speaking as if the Alt-Right were a bunch of knuckle-dragging, toothless, one-eyed pirates who live to kill black people. In my view, this was an inaccurate attempt to smear a group of nice young men who deserve much more credit than that. But then, people like Judge Jeanine don’t don’t visit the website or watch the videos.
White supremacy brings to mind ugly images of four black girls being blown up in a church in the 1960s. Back then, the KKK allegedly lynched black men for no reason, accused them of crimes they didn’t commit, and burned crosses in their front yards, terrifying them. While the KKK knew that blacks were a superstitious bunch and that this imagery terrified them, it didn’t go over well with gentle Whites. To be associated with this group nowadays especially is not a good thing. At the same time, no one from the Alt-Right seems to be doing much about it.
We should seriously consider becoming a political force that stops subversive lawmakers in their tracks. The Alt-Right should start a Congressional White Caucus, White lobbies, and White organizations promoting the interests of White Americans. They should run for office to promote their cause, even if they don’t win. There is a good reason for this that has nothing to do with racism. Minorities throw in our faces the fact that by 2042, Whites will be in the minority. If that is true, it makes perfect sense for the Alt-Right to start standing up for themselves just as Hispanics, African-Americans, and Asians do.
You might try getting on the phone and making calls to start.
Tomorrow, I will call the offices of Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator John McCain. I will say that I am calling on behalf of the Alt-Right and if they support The DREAM Act, we will insist that President Trump start investigating their business dealings. In Feinstein’s case, she has become wealthy while in office because she allegedly steers government contracts to family members. McCain has some dirty ties to Saudis. I will call them traitors and tell them America deserves better. You might think that this will lead to nowhere but I can assure you that I have left some of the receptionists utterly speechless because people rarely do this. Imagine how much more effective I would be if hundreds of others made the calls with me.
Chuck Schumer introduced the House Bill that helped create the Visa Lottery Program. Therefore, the Alt-Right should orchestrate a campaign to get this man out of office, even if it means going door-to-door. He has been in office way too long (since 1998) and is nothing but a traitor to our country. Once conservatives see that you are willing to be pro-active in supporting their interests, they will be happy to support you. Everyone has something to give. Older people may have money to contribute while younger people have the time and energy to get things done.
Which brings me to my main point.
We have to make news. Not the kind of news that reporters can twist for their own purposes, but the kind of news that tugs at Americans’ heartstrings. How about starting a fund to buy presents for children of soldiers serving in Afghanistan at Christmas? Contact the local news and ask them to air the story. You have to be your own advocate because few people will be, especially if they have something to gain by shutting you down, like the illegal immigrants and their advocates, or the NAACP.
Visit soldiers in the hospital. Raise money for the benevolent association of the local police. European-Americans, particularly the Irish, are the ethnicity most represented in law enforcement and the military. Shake their hands and thank them for their service. Be known for your good works and not just for whining about the America that you didn’t inherit. Give people a reason to be on your side and you might find that your movement is growing in a way you didn’t expect.
Luckily, it seems that our guys are getting the message. And I have no doubt that we will continue to improve and grow in a positive direction.
