I was thinking about writing an article about this, probably on the 4th, which is our nine (9) year anniversary.
Derek Black is the son of Don Black, founder of Stormfront and a former KKK member who tried to overthrow the government of some third world shithole. His mother was David Duke's ex-wife. In 2013, not long after I started this site, Derek denounced his family to the SPLC, ostensibly after having gone to college and made friends with the Jews.
This was something that I thought a lot about, and wanted to create a type of right-wingism that no kid would feel was so cringe he had to denounce his family over it. I'm not really even sure if Stormfront is still active, but they really hated me. I think most of those people, a lot of boomers and women, are populating Gab now, so I was reminded of this thing.
Obviously, there are other reasons related to how a father raises his son that would cause him to be denounced. Maybe Don Black was an asshole or whatever. Who knows. He always seemed pretty friendly. It's also possible Derek was getting hassled at university, or that this was some kind of attempt to get laid. But even if there were other issues, I imagine the biggest thing was that he just viewed the thing as embarrassing.
There has to be self-awareness, and there has to be humor, there has to be edginess. I think Stormfront at one point banned people from saying "nigger" - that was their attempt at "optics." I dunno, it's a boomer thing. I don't have anything against Duke or Black, but it was clear that the stuff they were doing just was not working.
20% of zoomers identify as gay, I think probably at least that number of males identifies as some kind of far-right winger. Trump was a big part of making right wing stuff cool, but mostly it's that right-wing people are actually funny while no one else is.
Alex Stein has been amazing me. He's not Jewish, by the way - Ethan Ralph asked him. "Stein" is a normal German name - it's just that most Germans in America moved here while we were still changing names. The Jews came later, and many decided not to change their names. Anyway, what if he was.a Jew? He's still funny and doing good work. The fact that people call him a Jew, based on nothing other than their own lack of knowledge about the history of anglicization of names, demonstrates the kind of retard toxicity that existed in the "far right" in the KKK times.
