From the Washington Post on Wednesday:

Signs saying ‘it’s okay to be white’ found at Maryland high school
By Donna St. George November 1

Fliers saying “it’s okay to be white” were found taped to the exterior doors of a Maryland high school Wednesday morning, apparently as part of an effort to spark racial division.

The principal at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring sent a letter home to families informing them that the signs were discovered on 10 doors at 5:45 a.m. and removed by staff before students arrived for ­classes.

“We are taking this seriously and are investigating this incident,” wrote Renay Johnson, the school’s principal. “Our research so far has indicated that this may be part of a concerted national campaign to foment racial and political tension in our school and community. The same flier was posted in other cities and communities this week.”

Johnson described the school community as “smart, diverse and inclusive” and said it would not “fall victim to attempts to divide us.”

“We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for every student,” the principal’s letter said.

At the University of Alberta in Canada, one of the posters appeared Tuesday outside the school’s Native Studies department, according to a media report. That came a day after a racist jack-o’-lantern was left outside the same academic office.

“Messaging or displays that target or marginalize any individuals or groups will not be tolerated,” the president of the University of Alberta, David Turpin, said in a statement.

From the Washington Post on Friday:

‘It’s okay to be white’ signs and stickers appear on campuses and streets across the country
By Janell Ross November 3 at 10:07 PM

Posters proclaiming “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE” have been appearing on college campuses and on city streets across the country this week, prompted by an anonymous chat-room comment that suggested the message would feed social unrest and sway white Americans to far-right ideologies.

Since Tuesday, the posters have been spotted in Rocky River, Ohio; at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn.; at Tulane University in New Orleans; at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Md.; around college-campus rich Cambridge, Mass., including the Harvard Yard and at the University of Alberta in Canada. In most cases, schools and cities have pulled the posters down, but the message has continued to spread in images and hashtags across Twitter and other social media platforms, even prompting a related Know Your Meme entry detailing its Internet origins and cultural backstory.

The signs began as a suggestion on the online chat space 4chan last month, a kind of Internet prank laced with ennui and cynicism about race and white identity in modern-day America. …

In the period just after the 2016 election, investigators with the Southern Poverty Law Center documented a surge in posters and recruitment activity by white-nationalist organizations on 150 college and university campuses. …

The sense that white Americans have become the lone group in America unable to attend to group interests shows up in those 4chan chat threads and Twitter timelines, too. …

The factual basis for claims that white Americans are collectively suffering is difficult to find. On average, they continue to enjoy better income, personal wealth reserves, health, health care, housing, schools than any other group.

Asians <> “group,” apparently.

White Americans also make up 90 percent of the nation’s elected officials despite making up about 61 percent of the total population.

At Concordia College, one of the campuses where the “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE” placards and stickers were found this week, removed them.

    That's the brilliance of the sign. Because they know it lends objective support to the Bad Guys, as a Marxist might say, so they go off to shoot down what it thinks are the Bad Guys' arguments. Being who they are, they focus on the Woe Is Me tactic, or argumentum ex debilitas.

    But the sign merely says it's okay to be white. Treating it as if it says anything else, including "it currently sucks to be white, therefore whites need more power," is playing the sign's game.

    , @AndrewR
    No, but WaPo's goal is to delegitimize the sign's message, and how better to do that then to make context-free, if not outright false, claims about how whites ostensibly have it so good.

    Which is why I wouldn't rule out the possibility of this being yet another hate hoax. Forcing Goodwhites to say "it's not okay to be white" has been the goal all along. Also, the MO is entirely in keeping with the established patterns of the hate hoax industry. Taping provocative fliers to schoolroom doors just isn't something that any serious Rightist ever does.

    But like most other hate hoaxes to date, this one seems likely to backfire. The idea that it is morally condemnable not to say "it's not okay to white"---i.e. the notion that one should be punished simply for refusing to take the cuck-bait---is a bridge too far. The anti-white forces have dangerously overestimated their own strength, even as the internal logic of their position has compelled them to this impossible extreme. Had they any real and attainable political goals, they would have quit while they were ahead. However, since their only objectives are to humiliate and parasitize Whites, they are incapable of stopping their propagandistic onslaughts.

    It was a crown jewel in MoCo public schools as recently as several years ago, at which point I moved from the area.

    Schools in MoCo have this exalted status, they are a sacred icon. I guess way back in the Mouseketeers era or something, it was a Lake Wobegon sort of place with these terrific public schools and now they spend gobs of money trying to continue this with an extraordinarily diverse and increasingly economically challenged population.

    They actually do a bang up job all things considered, but they have tons of money to do it.

    But yeah, Blair is definitely not any old HS in MoCo.

    There are a lot of whites who don't feel comfortable touting the wonders of the white race but who also aren't ethno masochists. They tend not to want to focus too much on the anti white hate that is so prevalent and prefer to talk about how they love everyone. "It's okay to be white" being treated as the equivalent of burning a cross on a lawn might well be just the thing to wake some of them up to what the future is going to be like for their descendants if dramatic changes aren't made.

    Sapir-Whorf Theorem – if you don’t name a concept that concept doesn’t inform your thinking.

    White Heritage. America’s public and social capital was built up by White Americans, one generation bequeathing it to the next. That wealth, that social and public capital, is being stolen by newly arrived minorities who are treated as equal beneficiaries.

    Even the framing of the report, the difficulty of finding low status in various metrics completely ignores the heritage, the inheritance, which is being stolen. No name for that concept hence no ability to even think about it.

    Whilst it is true that, for the average of the white aggregate, Human Dvelopment Indices (HDI) have been rising it obscures the fact that the White Working Class (WWC) has suffered an unprecedented peace time collapse in life expectancy. The white middle/upper class has continued to enjoy improved HDIs, as have Asian-, Hispanic-, and African-Americans.

    The moral collapse of the WWC has been put down to “diseases of despair”, chronicled by Breaking Bad. White privilege, indeed.

    White Americans also make up 90 percent of the nation’s elected officials despite making up about 61 percent of the total population.

    There’s a damn good reason for this. The white majority has been diluted by mass immigration of Mexican peasants and other low IQ immigrants. These newcomers are not leadership material. These newcomers are also less likely to speak English fluently and that makes getting elected difficult.

    Also the 61% figure for the white population is the low number that excludes all sorts of relatively pale face peoples who identify as white but are not European e.g. Lebanon, Iran, Turkey, Armenia etc and all of the lighter Arabs and Hispanics. These people ARE getting elected in places like New Hampshire! Sununu, Shaheen et al…

    Hmm. You should shorten your handle to Dasein. ;)

    First, this wasn’t a ham-fisted one-off like hate hoaxes usually are. Many people in many locations were required to pull it off. Second, the message itself doesn’t help leftists in any way. It’s a simple truth, benignly stated. And because of that, it’s a loaded trap for the Left to trip (and it worked).

    Taping provocative fliers to schoolroom doors just isn’t something that any serious Rightist ever does.
     
    Not true. Identity Evropa, for example, has had a sticker/flyer campaign going on for quite some time. The messages are pro-white (not anti-‘other’) and use Classical imagery and positive slogans. (IE uses more pointed messages in live demonstrations.) They are put in places the Left also uses to spread street-level propaganda, not merely “schoolroom doors.” Turf matters. Campaigns like this provide support to like-minded pro-whites while simultaneously provoking institutional and ‘community’ response to further drop their mask of goals of ‘equality.’

    Like commenter Boomstick wrote, Phase 2 of the “Okay To Be White” campaign should have visually identical “It’s Okay To Be Black” stickers placed in the same locations to test expressed institutional/community attitude toward the modified message. Compare and contrast.
    , @Rod1963
    How can it be hateful to state "it's okay to be white"? No mentally healthy white would disagree with it.

    Yet you do.

    It's about making the turf of the enemy your own. This is the equivalent of pissing in the SWJ's Wheaties. What they can do, we can do.

    Academia and even public schooling is ground zero for anti-white indoctrination. It's time we threw it back on those white professional cucks that have turned the education establishment into a cult indoctrination center.

    And they've gotten more PR than you or Sailer ever will. I saw a local Los Angeles news channel cover it yesterday. All they could do is bring on some ethnics and stupid white professional cucks to condemn it as "racist" and "divisive". IOW no real response.

    And that's great. Force the good whites into a corner and make them show their true anti-white colors and genocidal urges. These people are evil and need to be exposed for the monsters they are.

    > Which is why I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of this being yet another hate hoax.

    It's formally possible that the original poster was a hoaxer, an idiotic own-goal hoaxer. In that case, unlike other instances of Pokémon Points copycats, Posters 2 through N aren't playing by the OP's rules.
    , @AndrewR
    "Hate hoaxes" require actual signs of hate: racial slurs, nooses, swastikas. Only extremely mentally ill people could call this sign hateful.

    Btw, tell me what kind of activism you, presumably a "serious Rightist," are doing, and why a "serious Rightist" would not post this flier.

Then we can have speech codes, because the other side being able to communicate is Not Okay.

    If you invade their Safe Spaces with violence disguised as speech, they investigate it, and you go to jail? I dunno about the third part. What is the fruit of these investigations?

    White Americans also make up 90 percent of the nation’s elected officials despite making up about 61 percent of the total population.

    There's a damn good reason for this. The white majority has been diluted by mass immigration of Mexican peasants and other low IQ immigrants. These newcomers are not leadership material. These newcomers are also less likely to speak English fluently and that makes getting elected difficult.

    Also the 61% figure for the white population is the low number that excludes all sorts of relatively pale face peoples who identify as white but are not European e.g. Lebanon, Iran, Turkey, Armenia etc and all of the lighter Arabs and Hispanics. These people ARE getting elected in places like New Hampshire! Sununu, Shaheen et al...

    Also the 61% figure for the white population is the low number that excludes all sorts of relatively pale face peoples who identify as white but are not European e.g. Lebanon, Iran, Turkey, Armenia etc

    Don’t forget pale Khazars.

    The factual basis for claims that white Americans are collectively suffering is difficult to find.
     
    But that isn't what the sign said, is it?

    That’s the brilliance of the sign. Because they know it lends objective support to the Bad Guys, as a Marxist might say, so they go off to shoot down what it thinks are the Bad Guys’ arguments. Being who they are, they focus on the Woe Is Me tactic, or argumentum ex debilitas.

    But the sign merely says it’s okay to be white. Treating it as if it says anything else, including “it currently sucks to be white, therefore whites need more power,” is playing the sign’s game.

    "It's okay to be white" is the greatest bit of trolling I have ever seen. Its bordering on being milquetoast enables the statement to do a better job of highlighting the extent that anti white hatred and ethnomasochism permeates our modern institutions than would substituting "white" for any of the other self pride statement regularly expounded by other groups. Great job.

    Firstly, this is off topic. The sign says it’s okay to be white. That’s all.

    But since you brought it up, white people aren’t content merely to be better off than other groups. You’re the ones who keep bringing up the Gap. We don’t care that much about it. Despite what you think, our lives don’t revolve around Lording it over what we take to be lesser humans.

    We want to be better than we are. We want to be as good as we were, and to make up for lost ground. If we stayed the same and the living conditions of blacks, for instance, got worse, it wouldn’t make us feel better by comparison. We compare ourselves to ourselves.

The idea that it is morally condemnable not to say "it's not okay to white"---i.e. the notion that one should be punished simply for refusing to take the cuck-bait---is a bridge too far. The anti-white forces have dangerously overestimated their own strength, even as the internal logic of their position has compelled them to this impossible extreme. Had they any real and attainable political goals, they would have quit while they were ahead. However, since their only objectives are to humiliate and parasitize Whites, they are incapable of stopping their propagandistic onslaughts.

    If it’s a hate hoax, it’s the dumbest hate hoax ever. (On an international political scale, at least. On an individual scale, there are probably hate hoaxers who ended up in jail, or maybe even dead.)

    Sapir-Whorf Theorem - if you don't name a concept that concept doesn't inform your thinking.

    White Heritage. America's public and social capital was built up by White Americans, one generation bequeathing it to the next. That wealth, that social and public capital, is being stolen by newly arrived minorities who are treated as equal beneficiaries.

    Even the framing of the report, the difficulty of finding low status in various metrics completely ignores the heritage, the inheritance, which is being stolen. No name for that concept hence no ability to even think about it.

    There is a name for the concept: White Death.

    It is pretty ingenious, and probably the best thing I have seen from the /pol/ realm. I think this could work at getting more Nicholas Christakis and Bret Weinstein types to wake up and realize that there are dealing with people who have lost hold of reality.

    There are a lot of whites who don’t feel comfortable touting the wonders of the white race but who also aren’t ethno masochists. They tend not to want to focus too much on the anti white hate that is so prevalent and prefer to talk about how they love everyone. “It’s okay to be white” being treated as the equivalent of burning a cross on a lawn might well be just the thing to wake some of them up to what the future is going to be like for their descendants if dramatic changes aren’t made.

    It was a crown jewel in MoCo public schools as recently as several years ago, at which point I moved from the area.

    Schools in MoCo have this exalted status, they are a sacred icon. I guess way back in the Mouseketeers era or something, it was a Lake Wobegon sort of place with these terrific public schools and now they spend gobs of money trying to continue this with an extraordinarily diverse and increasingly economically challenged population.

    They actually do a bang up job all things considered, but they have tons of money to do it.

    Hmm. You should shorten your handle to Dasein. ;)

    First, this wasn’t a ham-fisted one-off like hate hoaxes usually are. Many people in many locations were required to pull it off. Second, the message itself doesn’t help leftists in any way. It’s a simple truth, benignly stated. And because of that, it’s a loaded trap for the Left to trip (and it worked).

    Taping provocative fliers to schoolroom doors just isn’t something that any serious Rightist ever does.

    Not true. Identity Evropa, for example, has had a sticker/flyer campaign going on for quite some time. The messages are pro-white (not anti-‘other’) and use Classical imagery and positive slogans. (IE uses more pointed messages in live demonstrations.) They are put in places the Left also uses to spread street-level propaganda, not merely “schoolroom doors.” Turf matters. Campaigns like this provide support to like-minded pro-whites while simultaneously provoking institutional and ‘community’ response to further drop their mask of goals of ‘equality.’

    Like commenter Boomstick wrote, Phase 2 of the “Okay To Be White” campaign should have visually identical “It’s Okay To Be Black” stickers placed in the same locations to test expressed institutional/community attitude toward the modified message. Compare and contrast.

    It’s about making the turf of the enemy your own. This is the equivalent of pissing in the SWJ’s Wheaties. What they can do, we can do.

    Academia and even public schooling is ground zero for anti-white indoctrination. It’s time we threw it back on those white professional cucks that have turned the education establishment into a cult indoctrination center.

    And they’ve gotten more PR than you or Sailer ever will. I saw a local Los Angeles news channel cover it yesterday. All they could do is bring on some ethnics and stupid white professional cucks to condemn it as “racist” and “divisive”. IOW no real response.

  65. One of the things that’s so great about this is that the media are helpless in having to report it even if they suspect they are being trolled. The system has reached levels of ideological inertia whereby the fears that a reporter would have about ignoring a story concerning white racism is greater than the fear they have of looking ridiculous or helping the enemy.

  66. How is saying “It’s okay to be white” divisive? It seems to be calling for tolerance and asking for mutual acknowledgement and respect. Basic human Rights.

    To my simple mind, saying one thing is okay doesn’t imply that something else is not okay; but then, I enjoyed Logic, which is a White thing.

    In the current year, "white" = "racist." Not everyone can consciously articulate this, but many "anti-racists" have been explicit about this for years. So the sign says "it's ok to be white" but the brainwashed read "it's ok to be racist." That's the best explanation I can come up with.
    , @guest
    The simplest answer is that they know the notes are being posted by their political enemies, so they're going to ignore what they say. That's irrelevant. The notes are effectively racist because their enemies are racist by definition. They're justified in their minds because they think they know that if we were in power we'd throw them in gas chambers. Probably because that's what they'd do to us if they could get away with it.

    On a deeper level, they actually don't think it's okay to be white, and the notes force them to reveal that fact.

    The only way to oppose this is to implicitly say “no, it’s not okay to be white.”
     
    Which is why I wouldn't rule out the possibility of this being yet another hate hoax. Forcing Goodwhites to say "it's not okay to be white" has been the goal all along. Also, the MO is entirely in keeping with the established patterns of the hate hoax industry. Taping provocative fliers to schoolroom doors just isn't something that any serious Rightist ever does.

    But like most other hate hoaxes to date, this one seems likely to backfire. The idea that it is morally condemnable not to say "it's not okay to white"---i.e. the notion that one should be punished simply for refusing to take the cuck-bait---is a bridge too far. The anti-white forces have dangerously overestimated their own strength, even as the internal logic of their position has compelled them to this impossible extreme. Had they any real and attainable political goals, they would have quit while they were ahead. However, since their only objectives are to humiliate and parasitize Whites, they are incapable of stopping their propagandistic onslaughts.

    > Which is why I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of this being yet another hate hoax.

    White Heritage. America's public and social capital was built up by White Americans, one generation bequeathing it to the next. That wealth, that social and public capital, is being stolen by newly arrived minorities who are treated as equal beneficiaries.

    Even the framing of the report, the difficulty of finding low status in various metrics completely ignores the heritage, the inheritance, which is being stolen. No name for that concept hence no ability to even think about it.

    An average leftist might respond: “that wealth was stolen via genocide, slavery, colonialism, etc”

    Also, the idea that some people deserve more peace and prosperity than others based “solely on an accident of birth” strikes many leftists as “gross.”

    They keep using variations on "target," which is I guess related to where these things are posted as opposed to the message. I keep wondering why they linger on the target aspect, but I guess it's as simple as their desire to pass off such messages as violence. Then we can have speech codes, because the other side being able to communicate is Not Okay.

    If you invade their Safe Spaces with violence disguised as speech, they investigate it, and you go to jail? I dunno about the third part. What is the fruit of these investigations? They expel you for...something. Wrongthink? Or do they actually arrest you for harassment/terroristic threats/littering?

    They talk about it like it's a criminal offense, anyway. Innocuous notes with at least superficially neutral messages.

    I’m pretty sure it would count as simple vandalism. It can’t be legal to just post fliers on door that don’t belong to you without authorization. Of course, they’re making it sound like these fliers are all GTK;RWN

  88. Seriously, though. This is exactly what I was talking about on another thread when I criticized Richard Spencer for being ineffective or even counterproductive. I pointed out that all our best memes have come from 4chan, and how the people there seem to have a fantastic understanding of viral marketing and meme warfare. That’s important because the internet–the digital samizdat–is really the only place where we are on (somewhat) equal footing. We have to use the sh*t out of it.

    What the 4channers get right is humor, sarcasm, irony. Those are invaluable for subverting the system and turning people against it. Back in the 60s, Abbey Hoffman understood that. We need to understand it, too.

    Look what’s happening now: the system is apoplectic over a bunch of cheap signs stating something perfectly innocuous. Brilliant! For almost no money at all–and without presenting the system with any kind of target whatsoever–the 4channers have shown them up for they are: humorless tyrants. This is the best thing to happen to the alt-right since Pepe the Frog!

    There's a damn good reason for this. The white majority has been diluted by mass immigration of Mexican peasants and other low IQ immigrants. These newcomers are not leadership material. These newcomers are also less likely to speak English fluently and that makes getting elected difficult.

    Also the 61% figure for the white population is the low number that excludes all sorts of relatively pale face peoples who identify as white but are not European e.g. Lebanon, Iran, Turkey, Armenia etc and all of the lighter Arabs and Hispanics. These people ARE getting elected in places like New Hampshire! Sununu, Shaheen et al...

    Has anyone checked whether they are using different metrics of “whiteness” to generate the 90% and 61% numbers? That would be par for the course.

    It looks like this is the source of this idea: https://wholeads.us/electedofficials/

    Taping provocative fliers to schoolroom doors just isn’t something that any serious Rightist ever does.
     
    It's about making the turf of the enemy your own. This is the equivalent of pissing in the SWJ's Wheaties. What they can do, we can do.

    Academia and even public schooling is ground zero for anti-white indoctrination. It's time we threw it back on those white professional cucks that have turned the education establishment into a cult indoctrination center.

    And they've gotten more PR than you or Sailer ever will. I saw a local Los Angeles news channel cover it yesterday. All they could do is bring on some ethnics and stupid white professional cucks to condemn it as "racist" and "divisive". IOW no real response.

    And that's great. Force the good whites into a corner and make them show their true anti-white colors and genocidal urges. These people are evil and need to be exposed for the monsters they are.

    “How can it be hateful to state ‘it’s okay to be white’?”

    It can’t (disregarding sophistical arguments about whiteness itself being hateful). That’s why the sign is so brilliant: it forces them to treat an obviously unhateful message as if it were hateful, thus revealing their own hate.

    It’s almost miraculous.

    The factual basis for claims that white Americans are collectively suffering is difficult to find.
     
    But that isn't what the sign said, is it?

    So the election Narrative of shrinking middle class jobs due to off-shoring globalization causing redneck hillbillies to self-medicate with opioids voting for Trump was just a case of ankle-biting media blame-casting…

    How about the following poster:

    It's okay to be white.

    It's okay to be black.

    It's okay to be Hispanic.

    It's okay to be Asian.
     
    What would the reaction be?

    Why didn’t you capitalize “White”? Are you suggesting Whites are inferior?

    Note the way the Washington Post ended the lead sentence of the first item: " ... apparently as part of an effort to spark racial division." This is an increasingly routine practice at the New York Times as well. The people who put these papers together today are so ideologically hot to trot that they can't bear to merely report a fact; they need to immediately tell you how to think about it. Now, the writer here clearly knows nothing about the intention of the person or persons who left these notes, so nothing about the purpose is "apparent." And even with no evidence whatsoever, the reporter (or her editor) insists that the purpose is malevolent, rather than what it seems on its face, which I'd call meekly defensive.

    Today? I quit reading the NYT 17 years ago because they told readers what to think in every article.

    “Knows nothing” is a feature not a bug. Evidence? They don’t need no stinkin’ evidence. It’s all about The Narrative. Nothing else matters.

    Being called a “racist” is one of the worst labels to be given, but the Washington Post and other outlets like it use the term so casually to describe anything either they don’t like or whatever violates the Narrative. Who made them the judge and jury about the supposed racist nature of the pumpkin found on the U of A campus? Why is it automatically racist? Simply because they say so?

    It’s like the Washington Post in the 1950s labeling a particular labour activist a “communist” right off the bat because he advocated for a 40-day work week.

    They’re supposed to be journalists whatever their ideologically-motivated feelings may be about the matter at hand.

    Well if you're too white (unless you're an albino) you should see a doctor. Also works for yellow. Not sure about black or brown.

    If you turn black or brown, you could also be coming down with something. I wouldn’t pass it off as just the common cold.**

    If you turn yellow, yes, it could be jaundice, so there’s lots of colors that you may turn that could be early warning signs. Purple is a big no-no. This makes me wonder how Oriental people know they have jaundice.

    Staying the same color is A-OK.

    Wow, brilliant! Really, it would be fun to see how the media and the libtards react to a campaign of mixed posters, some blank and some with the "It is Ok to be..." message. They will be pulling out their hair, screaming and yelling, jumping up and down. Maybe the fossils on Supreme Court will be called upon to decide whether or not a blank sheet of paper constitutes "hate speech".

    Yeah, sock it to them with blank sheets of paper!

    There are all sorts of possible minimalist variants on the way to a blank sheet of paper, such as:

    It’s okay to be

    or

    To be

    or

    Okay

    Eventually get down to a blank sheet.

  123. Whites go to Harvard to be deracinated – it’s what sets them apart from other whites and makes them uniquely qualified to rule the world (everyone else is too racist!), so in a very literal sense it is not OK to be white at Harvard. That’s become the whole point of the place.

Soon enough, wearing a white shirt will trigger any liberal and have them denouncing you as a white supremacist Nazi.

    Seriously, though. This is exactly what I was talking about on another thread when I criticized Richard Spencer for being ineffective or even counterproductive. I pointed out that all our best memes have come from 4chan, and how the people there seem to have a fantastic understanding of viral marketing and meme warfare. That's important because the internet--the digital samizdat--is really the only place where we are on (somewhat) equal footing. We have to use the sh*t out of it.

    What the 4channers get right is humor, sarcasm, irony. Those are invaluable for subverting the system and turning people against it. Back in the 60s, Abbey Hoffman understood that. We need to understand it, too.

    Look what's happening now: the system is apoplectic over a bunch of cheap signs stating something perfectly innocuous. Brilliant! For almost no money at all--and without presenting the system with any kind of target whatsoever--the 4channers have shown them up for they are: humorless tyrants. This is the best thing to happen to the alt-right since Pepe the Frog!

    Go 4chan!

    This “trolling” business should not be lightly dismissed, I agree. It’s hugely important and effective.

    But I think you still need serious ideological work and leadership. Spencer may fall short in that regard, but there need to be more people like him, not fewer.
