Hey, wow, surprise: the candidate who referred to undocumented migrants as “criminals” and “rapists” is winning many fans on the ultra, lily-white right. White nationalists, neo-Nazis, and everyone else who talks a lot about “white genocide” have decided that Donald Trump is their guy, despite their lingering concerns over his Jewish son-in-law. This is real life. This is American politics, circa 2015.

In the New Yorker last week, Evan Osnos noted that Donald Trump, once decried by Nazis as a “Jew lover” because of Jared Kushner, his aforementioned son-in-law, and his trumpeting support for the Israeli government, has increasingly wide popularity among white supremacists. That’s because Trump, like them, fears that non-white immigrants represent a creeping scourge that will destroy the American way of life as they understand it.

One of those white nationalists, Richard Bertrand Spencer, told Osnos that Trump understands the “unconscious vision” shared by many fearful white people, in a way that no one has since the Tea Party’s rise in 2010:

Spencer told me that he had expected the Presidential campaign to be an “amusing freak show,” but that Trump was “refreshing.” He went on, “Trump, on a gut level, kind of senses that this is about demographics, ultimately. We’re moving into a new America.” He said, “I don’t think Trump is a white nationalist,” but he did believe that Trump reflected “an unconscious vision that white people have—that their grandchildren might be a hated minority in their own country. I think that scares us. They probably aren’t able to articulate it. I think it’s there. I think that, to a great degree, explains the Trump phenomenon. I think he is the one person who can tap into it.”

White nationalists reacted to the New Yorker article with a mixture of pleasure — any attention is good attention, when you’re that far on the fringe — and irritation, suspecting that the author himself is Jewish and that perhaps they were being mocked. Here’s Andrew Anglin, editor of the Daily Stormer, one of the most popular white nationalist websites:

(I’ll save Andrew some time and note here that I am also Jewish. The Jew Media, sinister anti-white conspiracy, etc. etc.)

Anglin and the Stormer have been enthusiastic about Trump for a while now, endorsing him for president, even though, as the site’s Lee Rogers wrote, “He’s not the next Adolf Hitler.” Over the weekend, Anglin also decried “Jewish ethnic activism” against Trump’s campaign. He doesn’t think there’s an actual Jewish conspiracy against Trump, he added, just that it’s in the nature of the “ratlike” Jews to try to destroy anyone who’s good for civilization:

By the way, I don’t really think it’s a conspiracy. I merely think that it is in the biology of the Jew to destroy Western civilization, and that they have begun to view Trump as a positive influence on Western civilization, and so they must act against him.

It’s not just Anglin: the virulently anti-immigrant VDare is also on board, praising Trump as an “immigration patriot” and claiming in July that a “political and economic terror campaign” is being waged against him, one that somehow hasn’t prevented him from polling well and participating in national debates.

The White Genocide Project, which is what it sounds like, also petitioned the White House in July to recognize Donald Trump as a savior of the white race or whatever:

White GeNOcide Project honors Donald Trump for opposing White Genocide, and asks President Obama to honor him also.

ALL White countries and ONLY White countries are being flooded with third worlders, and Whites are forced by law to integrate with them so as to “assimilate,” i.e. intermarry and be blended out of existence.

Massive immigration and forced assimilation is genocide when done in Tibet, and is genocide when done in White countries, by UN Convention.

(Only 243 people signed the petition, and it was closed.)

The Occidental Observer thinks Trump is starting to turn against the Jew Media and the Israel lobby — who are the exact same people, in their reckoning:

Trump’s statements on the criminal tendencies and generally low functioning of Mexican and Central American immigrants have struck a chord with White America. And he certainly did not fall in my estimation when he attacked two prominent operatives of the Republican Party/Israel Lobby nexus hostile to his candidacy, Charles Krauthammer and Jonah Goldberg. Then there’s the Twitter incident: “I promise you that I’m much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz — I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow,” tweeted Trump, adding, “Who, by the way, is totally overrated.” It is, of course, considered “anti-Semitic” to ever call attention to the fact that someone is Jewish because of the absolutely outrageous suggestion that the Jewish identity of someone like Stewart/Leibowitz might influence his opinions. As we all know, Jews are just like everybody else.

These are perhaps the first shots in what will become a raging conflagration between the Jewish media establishment and Trump if he continues to gain traction.

And Radix, the outlet founded by Richard B. Spencer, said Trump is their guy, even though he’s a “troll.” Although he’s not sufficiently racist, Gregory Hood writes, people who are, “the White working class,” will vote for him out of necessity. The White Rights subreddit is also filled with praise for Trump, and the American Nazi Party is downright celebratory, even as they’re suspicious of his motives:

Trump feels no need to be “PC”, and he isn’t.

I’m certainly NOT stating that I believe for one minute that Donald Trump BELIEVES any of the things he’s stating that discomforts the “mainstream” political whores so much - after all, HE is THE ideal representative of the greedy, unscrupulous 1%ers - BUT, he’s SMART enough to understand that the vast majority of the American populace is totally FED UP with the SYSTEM and its STOOGES, and he’s clever enough to tap into it!

Since he’s nobody’s “bought boy” as he’s already stated, unlike the other political hacks, he DARES to state the obvious! He tells it as the majority of the population FEELS, and he’s far ahead in the polls because of it.

Americans of ALL races are FED UP with this ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION - so he says that he’ll BUILD a WALL to keep them out! CHEERS! He states that “Political Correctness” is disgusting and it’s time to STOP IT! More CHEERS! He DARES to turn his guns on the paid morons of the system controlled MEDIA! And regular folks LOVE it!

Did you watch that last “debate” amongst the “republirat” candidates? I did. These bought and sold bastards were ACHING to make similar statements like Trump, KNOWING that those statement were resonating among the viewers - but they DARE not! Their handlers would have immediately dropped them, and they would be tarred forever as being renegades outside the system corral. Their opportunities at feeding at the public trough would be ended forever! So they stood there looking (and feeling) like the lame-ass CON-servative FOOLS they ARE.

Trump isn’t going to denounce his new Nazi fans, not unless he absolutely has to, not unless one of them does something horrible. When former KKK leader David Duke endorsed Trump on his radio show, Trump responded, “I don’t need his endorsement.” Not because of the KKK thing, you understand, but because he doesn’t need anybody’s endorsement. From Politico:

“I don’t need his endorsement; I certainly wouldn’t want his endorsement,” Trump said during an interview with Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. He added: “I don’t need anyone’s endorsement.”

Asked whether he would repudiate the endorsement, Trump said “Sure, I would if that would make you feel better.”

Or take the homeless Latino man in Boston who was urinated on and savagely beaten by Trump supporters: the candidate’s first reaction was to say only that while he hadn’t heard about the beating, “I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.” Only after a day of intense media criticism did Trump managed to mention that the attack was “terrible:”

But Trump’s support among white supremacist types still isn’t universal: commenters on Stormfront, a white power message board full of aging, cranky loners, are still concerned about his ties with “manhattens [sic] jewish run real estaters.” Others are pretty sure that he is an always will be a “Jew tool.” And Counter Currents says that while Trump is indeed pretty good for the White Man right now, he’s not really One of Us:

Granted, an eccentric billionaire who’s beholden to his own ego rather than to Jewish and globalist financial backers is probably preferable to the rest of the available contenders. But he’s not one of us. He’s not pursuing shared interests. He doesn’t have shared goals. Trump is approaching this political campaign as a businessman, not as an ideologue, and he’ll follow the money and ego gratification away from White Interests as quickly as he followed the money and ego gratification toward White Interests.

Jared Taylor of American Renaissance, meanwhile, speculates that Ted Cruz will actually be better about “standing up for whites:”

One thing’s for certain: fans of white supremacy sure have a lot of attractive candidates to choose from among the Republican contenders. The rest of us, not so much.
