"Luke Ford reports all of the 'juicy' quotes, and has been doing it for years." (Marc B. Shapiro)
"This guy knows all the gossip, the ins and outs, the lashon hara of the Orthodox world. He’s an [expert] in... all the inner workings of the Orthodox world." (Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet-Rothkoff)
Evan McClaren, the new leader of Richard Spencer’s white nationalist think tank says his political path into far-right politics began after reading the work of Paul Gottfried — a Jewish intellectual who has been dubbed the “Moses of the alternative right.”
McClaren became executive director at the National Policy Institute this summer, taking over the role that Spencer once held and says he was “very attracted to the writings” of Gottfried as a younger man.
“I was very attracted to the writings that were published by Paul Gottfried,” McLaren told the Intercept.
Gottfried is an academic and author who has been an outspoken critic of neoconservatives in the Republican Party and coined the term “alternative right” — which Spencer later shortened to “alt-right.” While Gottfried does not call himself a white nationalist he has become — in the words of Tablet — a “philosophical lodestone” to people like McLaren and Spencer.
McLaren was so moved by reading Gottfried’s work that he drove to his office in Pennsylvania to get involved in Gottfried’s H.L. Mencken Club, named for the 20th century “free-thinker.”
It was through this club and Gottfried that McLaren would go on to meet other white nationalist leaders like Spencer — and later take over leadership at NPI.
“I knew Evan during his college years at Kenyon,” Gottfried wrote in an email to the Forward. “He then attended an early meeting of the Mencken Club but never came back. I was flabbergasted to see him evolving into some kind of white nationalist.”
At a Shabbat dinner in 1994, I met a guy and immediately hated him because it seemed like he was making progress on some woman at the party I wanted. Then I started talking to the guy and we kept talking deep into the evening and it turned out he had no designs on the woman (who I had no success with anyway). This guy became my best friend in LA from 1994-1998.
I felt chagrined that night about the thin line between love and hate. I started out the night hating the guy and ended the night befriending him. He became such a good friend that I trusted him enough to give him a credit card (I was responsible for it) and I expected he would pay his bills promptly. It turned out that he stiffed me for about $500 and got furious when I canceled his card. He never wanted to discuss what happened and that took a toll on our friendship and I felt like I wasn’t particularly interested in having him in my life.
A mutual friend said to me that I should join the line of people who’ve been burned by this guy.
My buddy’s life went from bad to worse. He had accident after accident and normal life ceased for him around 1999. I haven’t spoken to him since about 2008.
It is easy to flip between love and hate — for individuals and for groups. I’m not surprised that many white nationalists were influenced by Jewish intellectual Paul Gottfried. In slightly different circumstances, our love turns to hate and vice versa. In one context, goyim might be favorably disposed to many Jews and in other contexts, they might want all of them gone from their country, just as for Jews, in some circumstances, may feel positively toward goyim and in slightly different circumstances, hate them.
Big doors swing on small hinges. If you are a visible representative of a minority group, you should be on excellent behavior when dealing with out-groups. Millions of lives might swing on it.
Hitler had many positive experiences with Jews but more negative ones. I’m not sure how much his personal experiences shaped his worldview on Jews.
…I found myself talking to a Jewish woman who works in the US government. “I don’t understand,” she said with dismay. “In America, Jewish people are upstanding citizens. What is happening in Israel?”
The woman was referring to the massive growth of organized crime in Israel over the past ten years, as well as the fact that Israel has become one of the world’s leading exporters of investment scams, stealing an estimated $5 billion to $10 billion per year from victims worldwide.
Despite the fact that Israeli police recently announced that these investment scams are largely run by organized crime, which has grown to “monstrous proportions” as a consequence of little to no law enforcement for years, the Israeli government, parliament and authorities have to date proved unwilling or unable to shut them down, in part because these fraudulent industries have a powerful lobby in the Knesset.
“Most Israelis are good people,” I told the Washington woman in Israel’s defense. “It’s just the system that is broken.”
Indeed, Israel’s democratic system has become riddled with corruption of late. Analysts who study Israel’s high-tech sector (and who were unwilling to talk on the record for fear of angering their colleagues) told The Times of Israel last year that an estimated 25 percent of the revenue of Israel’s lauded high-tech sector comes from shady or fraudulent industries, including online gambling, binary options, forex, downloaders/injectors (companies that put malevolent software on your computer without your knowledge), and the payment, affiliate marketing and adtech companies that service these industries.
Israel’s Finance Ministry recently issued a report showing that the cost of nearly every consumer product, with the exception of education and produce, is significantly higher in Israel than the OECD average. Analysts attribute this high cost to monopolists and rent seekers who pull strings and lobby the government to block competition in industry after industry.
Meanwhile, apartment prices have risen 118% in the last ten years, for reasons economists cannot fully explain. Recently, the sale of new apartments has slowed, which a report in The Marker by Nimrod Bousso attributes to a recent crackdown on money laundering in Israeli banks ordered by the Bank of Israel’s Supervisor of the Banks. The report suggests that rampant money laundering was a significant factor in the rise of apartment prices in the first place.
A goy friend got some money and her Jewish friend advised her to "invest it and Jew it up." BF comes by says, "I'm here to pick up the Jew."

If a Jew tells you to invest your money and “Jew it up”, is that anti-Semitic? Asking for a friend.
If a black tells you to buy bling and get negrofied, is that racist?
Is the main reason minorities are afraid in America is that they subconsciously realize the majority would be better off driving them out?
Is this how blacks, latinos, asians, etc think subconsciously? They realize that the majority would be better off without them? I don’t know many Jews who think this way. Most Jews believe that they are an asset to America. I’m sure many blacks suspect America would be better off without them. I suspect most non-blacks believe that but would not like to say so out loud. I am not sure about latinos and asians.
If minorities behave in a way that gives the majority an incentive to be rid of them, then it would make sense for these minorities to live in great fear of the majority discovering its group interests. Hence the rampant paranoia among minorities living in luxury and peace in America and all the lying by civil rights organizations and the massive gaslighting by MSM.
I suspect that the more convinced you are that the majority would be better off in America without your group, the more paranoid you will be about the majority developing its group interests. The less convinced you are that your group is a drag on the country, the more ease you will feel about whites discovering their group interests.
The more you hate the majority, the more you will fear them, and underlying that will be the fear that the majority would be better off without you and that one day it will wake up to its group interests.
It must be a horrible feeling when you realize that others are better off without you and your group. So naturally you hate them for being better off without you.
Wow, suddenly the behavior of organized minorities against America’s white Christian core make perfect sense.
When you do a Fourth Step inventory, you list off your resentments and fears. When you look at the lists, you notice that the people you resent are the people you fear and for the same reason — you’ve wronged them so you know that they have an incentive to hurt you and so you rationally fear them.
