The one where Amanda Moore joins us again to discuss her experiences at CPAC, Rage Against The War Machine, and why people keep platforming guys like Chuck Johnson and Richard Spencer.
Here are some of the sources we used, as well as more information on some of the subjects we discussed:
“The Rage Against the War Machine rally had all of those problems. And while the organizers feebly attempted to portray the rally as pro-peace, the speaker line up included Miss Russia’s boyfriend, a journalist for Sputnik (a Russian state owned media agency), a former UN weapons inspector turned convicted pedophile, and a current lieutenant colonel in the US Army.”
“After Fuentes’ event was over Saturday evening, a Groyper approached me in the Gaylord hotel. He asked me why I left the rally early, and I held up my press badge. “No journalists, no drag queens. Per Nick himself.”
He informed me someone told the fire marshal they were over capacity, and that 20 people were forced to leave. He shot me an accusatory look, and I shrugged. “It wasn’t me. It wasn’t any of the journalists. We were all together the whole time.”
“Well,” he said as he started to walk away. “If it wasn’t the journalists, it must have been the Jews.”
“On a since-suspended Twitter account and active channel on Telegram called “Pure Politics,” Greyson, or “American Greyson” as he calls himself, has shared posts that called Nazi men the “pure race” and that the US should have sided with the Nazis during World War Two. Arnold has falsely claimed there were “Jewish plans to genocide the German people,” and in a post, he shared a quote that said the “Jewish led colored hordes of the Earth” were attempting to exterminate White people. “
“U.S. Rep. Matt Rosendale said he unwittingly posed for a photo with high profile members of the neo-Nazi movement last week walking between congressional hearings.
The photo taken March 1 in front of the Capitol shows Rosendale, a two-term lawmaker, posing with Ryan Sanchez, formerly of the white supremacist street-fighting gang RAM, or Rise Above Movement, and Greyson Arnold, a Nazi sympathizer and podcaster present at the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Arnold has called Adolf Hitler a "misunderstood" and “complicated historical figure."“
This is our current events recap program, where we offer our takes on what’s going on at the bleeding edge of the information war. Feel free to let us know what you think, suggest topics, etc. at email@example.com, or in our group chat using the Substack app.
