    Great interview. I wish all the best to the Alternative Right intellectual project. Though I wish you had asked Spencer a personal question regarding his relationship with Nina Kouprianova. Apparently Kouprianova is his girlfriend, and she supposedly has non-trivial Tatar ancestry. If this is the case, then Spencer’s race-mixing tendencies might explain his reluctance on WN and the JQ.

    Marshall, I doubt it is as complicated as that. He probably wants to make a career as a “conservative” writer and is well aware that telling the truth about the jews will kill his putative career stone cold.

    Is Spencer going to allow comments at his new site or will he shut them down the wa they did at TakiMag?

  4. Mike Conner on March 5th, 2010 1:07 am

    Do people who write comments actually listen to these shows? Do people who actually listen ever write comments? At times I have to wonder.

    Re: “maybe Spencer isn’t a brain-dead xenophobic neanderthal like you ”

    So “brain-dead xenophobic Neanderthal” means anybody who doesn’t kowtow to the Jew World Order? Okay.

    We need to stop pussyfooting around the issue of Western decay.

    We cannot blame Jews or other ethnic groups for this. It’s our homegrown problem.

    We have too many gullible idiots and parasitic manipulators from our own people. Others just took advantage of them.

  7. Akira on March 5th, 2010 9:35 am

    And what is it that distinguishes the West, especially over the past century?

    Jewish power and dominance, especially in the media, law, and banking.

    Re: “…the issue of Western decay. We cannot blame Jews…”

    Okay, then where is this decay? Some examples, please.

    It;s easy to see where Brett Stephens is coming from, when you see how he laughs at the following:

    “A Catholic priest claimed that Superman “seems to personify the primitive religion expounded by Nietzsche’s Zarathustra’’ and said comics were a dangerous distraction from Christianity.”

    Stephens thinks this is hilarious. The idea that an ostensibly Christian country has a culture dominated by Christ-Killers is a big joke to Stephens.

    X-Men: Jewish

    Fantastic Four: Jewish

    Batman: Jewish

    Superman: Jewish

    Spiderman: Jewish


    Just like TV.

    Law & Order: Jewish

    CSI: Jewish

    NCIS: Jewish

    Friends: Jewish

    Seinfeld: Jewish

    CNN: Jewish (+ Wolf Blitzer, Larry King, Aaron Brown, Campbell Brown: Jews)

    CBS: Jewish

    NBC: Jewish

    ABC: Jewish

    MTV: Jewish

    Disney: Jewish


    This is the essence of both the Protocols and Talmudism. 1-2% of the population setting the “news” agenda, setting the parameters of debate, telling people how to think about sex and war and God and politics and the law and culture, deciding what people watch and listen to and read, hiring ‘stars’ creating celebrities, agents for the talking heads and dream-makers and stars, lawyers for virtually every media figure, directing producing and writing in over half of the influential media, running the porn industry, etc.

    And then some fool tries to say that Jews have nothing to do with cultural and societal rot?

    I can say I’ve listened to the interview and read the comments.

    One criticism I have that nags me: I always have trouble with the word ‘alternative’. It sounds like one is presenting something inferior to the real Right or trying to illegitimately hijack the meaning of the term. IMO The ‘True Right’ or something similar would have captured the meaning and sent a powerful message. ‘Alternative right’ reminds me of the term ‘alternative lifestyle’ and you know what that entails.

  10. John Trumble on March 6th, 2010 2:20 am

    To suggest that there is an “Alternative Right” is to suggest that there is more than one right. Either it is the Right or it is the Left. There is no alternative. What this title states is that the Right has been fractured by opposing ideologies and therefore is constituted of several branches, and now we can have an alternative.


    When I put on my shoes, there is the left one and the right one. There is no alternative. A simplistic analogy? Perhaps. Now, you go figure.

  11. John Trumble on March 6th, 2010 2:35 am

    Edwin R’s post was not visible when I posted mine. I certainly cannot disagree with his observations.

    Hmm… I viewed Mr. Spencer’s website. I sense a potentially decadent, Babylonian gloss. Hence, an eventual mudslide into a deep brook.

    It looks as if Richard Spencer is stating his philo-”Semitic”, Zionist, Neo-Con inclinations more clearly. If his project, the Alternative Right, takes the direction he outlines here, it will no longer be an “alternative” platform, but rather very much part of the entrenched Jewish Zionist establishment.

    From his article An Alliance with the Jews:

    “At the moment, American Jews generally support politicians like Barack Obama”

    No they don’t. Organized American Jewry – and the neo-con media that they control – are foaming at the mouth over Obama.

    “But there will come a time, perhaps soon, when Jews will need new partners.”

    Perhaps a Freudian slip on Spencer’s part. The Jews do indeed seek “partners” with which they form parasitic, non-reciprocal relationships. In the 1980s, the Jews (neo-cons) teamed up with the “Christian Right”. In the 2010s will they court the White Right?

    Possibly; Spencer is setting the stage for that.

    “And the fact that Allan Dershowitz and Norman Podhoretz have teamed up with Pat Robertson and John Hagee proves that anything is possible.”

    No it proves that people will sell themselves as tools of the Jewish lobby – knowingly – especially where monetary kickbacks are involved. Pat Robertson and Hagee were never heavyweights as far as “pro-white/traditionalist conservatism” goes anyway.

    And here’s where a coalition could take shape. World Jewry isn’t as monolithic as some anti-Semites and philo-Semites like to imagine

    Yes it is.

    “Israeli nationalists might want to help finance the far Right in Europe”

    They are doing exactly that – perhaps another Freudian slip on Spencers part. See the English Defence League, Geert Wilders and the Dutch Freedom Party. All Zionist operations masquerading as “far Right” parties. The BNP are also highly suspect in this regard; though less blatant than the aforementioned.

    Zionism disguised as European Nationalism is indeed a strategy that the Jews are adopting. They’ve done it in Europe; it seems likely they will do it in North America too. Neo-conservatism repackaged.

    “Certainly, if the two camps could grasp that their interests are complimentary”

    Jewish and European interests are not complementary.

    “an improbable grand alliance might be in the cards.”

    However “grand” the “alliance” may be it will always be the Jews that call the tune and win out at the end of the day. They will have the disportionate say; the “partners” such as the Christian Right or possible the White Right will merely be cheerleaders.

    This is an old Jewish trick, we should be wise to it by now.

    “Unlike the neocons and the Holy Rollers, this new group would be willing to radically reconstitute the American social order.”

    No, this “new group” will merely be a reconfiguration of neo-conservativism.
