Considering the Carcass Worshipers

Kim du Toit on the alt-​right movement.

My com­mon ground with the alt-​Right is this: like them, I think that West­ern civ­i­liza­tion and cul­ture is the great­est thing that ever occurred to mankind. It has ele­vated our soci­ety from brutish­ness and beast­li­ness into civ­i­liza­tion, quite pos­si­bly to the zenith of thought, achieve­ment and pros­per­ity. Just tak­ing the period from Ancient Greece to the Inter­net, it is dif­fi­cult to imag­ine how life would exist today were it not for West­ern cul­ture — the sci­ences, econ­omy, music, arts, lit­er­a­ture, morals, man­ners and mores, the whole damn thing. West­ern civ­i­liza­tion, in other words, is absolutely worth main­tain­ing, pro­long­ing, ven­er­at­ing and all that.

And here’s the first lit­tle road­block that the alt-​Right throws in my way: their dis­taste, and even hatred for Jews.

I have no idea why that is. Pound for pound, the Jews have con­tributed as much or more to West­ern civ­i­liza­tion than any other group — it’s even called the “Judeo-​Christian tra­di­tion”, FFS — and to dis­count this con­tri­bu­tion delib­er­ately, to me, shows a shal­low intel­lect at best. (At worst, Hitler, but I’m not going to go there.) Of course, I know that many Jews are social­ists, com­mu­nists, pro­gres­sives, one-​worlders, and all those things that are not only them­selves dis­taste­ful, but are con­tra­dic­tory to West­ern thought. End­ing slav­ery in the West­ern hemi­sphere (an action per­formed solely by West­ern nations, lest we for­get) is not the same as allow­ing West­ern cul­ture to be per­verted or sub­merged by infe­rior cul­tures — and let’s be per­fectly hon­est, when com­pared to West­ern cul­ture, all other cul­tures are in gen­eral absolutely infe­rior to ours. To say oth­er­wise is to be igno­rant of his­tory, or to be able to con­sciously deny the fact of the mat­ter despite all evi­dence to the contrary. (…)

Do I think that a lot of Jews are lib­eral a**holes? You betcha, again. (Don’t even ask me about Jews and their sup­port for gun con­trol, unless we also men­tion JPFO, who also seem to have missed the memo.)

Am I pre­pared to become an anti-​Semite because of The Great Jew­ish Con­spir­acy? Think again, Adolf.

Kim du Toit on the alt-right movement.

My common ground with the alt-Right is this: like them, I think that Western civilization and culture is the greatest thing that ever occurred to mankind. It has elevated our society from brutishness and beastliness into civilization, quite possibly to the zenith of thought, achievement and prosperity. Just taking the period from Ancient Greece to the Internet, it is difficult to imagine how life would exist today were it not for Western culture — the sciences, economy, music, arts, literature, morals, manners and mores, the whole damn thing. Western civilization, in other words, is absolutely worth maintaining, prolonging, venerating and all that.

And here’s the first little roadblock that the alt-Right throws in my way: their distaste, and even hatred for Jews.

I have no idea why that is. Pound for pound, the Jews have contributed as much or more to Western civilization than any other group — it’s even called the “Judeo-Christian tradition”, FFS — and to discount this contribution deliberately, to me, shows a shallow intellect at best. (At worst, Hitler, but I’m not going to go there.) Of course, I know that many Jews are socialists, communists, progressives, one-worlders, and all those things that are not only themselves distasteful, but are contradictory to Western thought. Ending slavery in the Western hemisphere (an action performed solely by Western nations, lest we forget) is not the same as allowing Western culture to be perverted or submerged by inferior cultures — and let’s be perfectly honest, when compared to Western culture, all other cultures are in general absolutely inferior to ours. To say otherwise is to be ignorant of history, or to be able to consciously deny the fact of the matter despite all evidence to the contrary. (…)

Do I think that a lot of Jews are liberal a**holes? You betcha, again. (Don’t even ask me about Jews and their support for gun control, unless we also mention JPFO, who also seem to have missed the memo.)

Am I prepared to become an anti-Semite because of The Great Jewish Conspiracy? Think again, Adolf.
