If you hadn’t heard of him before last week, you’ve probably heard of him by now.
Christopher Cantwell, an alleged “neo-Nazi white supremacist” who was scheduled to speak at the now infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, has been making national headlines this week for his role in the rally and subsequent appearance in an inflammatory and heavily-edited VICE smear piece intended to impugn the organizers of the aforementioned event.
In reality, Chris isn’t a Nazi at all. It’s not unfair to say that Chris doesn’t disavow Nazis, but Chris himself takes issue with their economic policies. Chris is a self-described libertarian and anarcho-capitalist, and he’s extremely well versed in Austrian economics. He also describes himself as a racist but defines the term to include anyone who acknowledges the existence of biological differences between people of different races (which describes literally everyone). He likewise describes himself as a fascist but defines the term to include those who use the state against communist provocateurs who reject the private property norms upon which libertarianism is based–freedom of association being chief among them.
Cantwell wasn’t smeared on HBO and banned from Facebook, Twitter, PayPal, and a slew of other platforms because of hate speech or a violation of community standards. It wasn’t because he’s a racist, anarcho-capitalist leader of the Alt-Right. It happened because the left hates and wants to silence voices of opposition. It happened because Chris is an intelligent and well-spoken white male who refuses to be cucked by leftist narratives. It happened because the modern left wants a political outcome which is antithetical to the existence of white people, and because Chris constitutes a serious threat to that goal.
Demographic displacement is real. The state, led by post-modernists and cultural Marxists acting under auspices of social justice, is facilitating this phenomenon. The proof is in the birth rates. The proof is in every bit of content published by the fake news media. The proof is in the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965. The proof is in the public school curricula. As children, we are taught to hate ourselves and our heritage. We are taught to believe that our existence is a threat to humanity and breeding would be bad for the environment, the disadvantaged, etc.
“Unite the Right” was intended to be a peaceful event for people to come together and demonstrate their opposition to the censorship of Southern history. That’s all there was to it. A bunch of white people in Polo shirts and a few of their black friends in Trump hats wanted to have a show of support for the continued existence of our civilization. Despite having secured permits, the event organizers were forced by police to end the event early because the communist terror organization Antifa arrived. According to Antifa, supporting the continued existence of white people makes you a target to be assaulted, hit with sticks and metal pipes, doused in piss and sh-t, struck with bottles full of cement, hit in the head with hammers and bike locks, and doused with chemical weapons.
According to “Unite the Right” attendees, that’s exactly what happened and much of the video evidence backs up their side of the story. Instead of adhering to the pre-planned strategy of keeping Antifa separate from the rally, police allowed Antifa to surround the rally and then forced the attendees to disperse through the crowd of Antifa inciters. That’s why violence broke out, it’s why Christopher Cantwell may have been singled out for arrest over the use of self-defense, and it’s why Heather Heyer is dead. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy hate white people so much that they’d rather have police stand down and create a riot than let people protest in defense of their history. Let that sink in a bit once you’re done pearl clutching and virtue signaling your feigned outrage over Nazis.
Chris is a good man who is extremely passionate about liberty, private property, free speech, and freedom of association. When Chris read Hoppe’s book Democracy: The God That Failed, he changed his position and conformed to the implications of the information. When Stefan Molyneux covered the demographic displacement of western civilization and gave Charles Murray a platform to discuss the Bell Curve (the subject of which should be common knowledge), Chris changed his position and conformed to the implications of the information. That is what an astute thinker should do, rather than clinging to dogma and refusing to reevaluate your preconceived notions.
I underwent a similar progression recently, and have endured a lot of verbal abuse for talking about it, most of which came from libertarians and anarchists who previously praised my work; some of which came from people I thought were my friends. That’s why I know where Chris is coming from, and it’s why I once appeared on an episode of his podcast to discuss these issues with him. I was even fired from Being Libertarian for discussing these issues–much like Chris was fired from Free Talk Live. Leftists can object and appeal to the baseless conspiracy theory of white privilege and censor people all day long, but at the end of that day, the truth will ultimately prevail.
