Nationalists Host Well-Attended Conference in the Heart of Downtown D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The National Policy Institute (NPI) held its annual winter conference at the elegant Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in downtown Washington, D.C. on March 5. This reporter was in attendance with at least 100 other activists, writers, and pro-white advocates. The evening conference, entitled “Identity Politics,” featured powerful speeches from three of the leading voices in the pro-white community, as well as an opportunity to network with and meet other like-minded individuals from across the country.

Ramzpaul, a popular YouTube commentator who often injects humor and mockery into his insightful video commentaries, spoke at length about the “alternative right” or “Alt Right,” as it has now become known, which represents a break away from mainstream conservatism and GOP party politics. The alternative right, a term originally coined by Richard Spencer, the president and director of the National Policy Institute who organized the conference and also spoke, is a popular and quickly growing dissident movement composed of a wide ranging group of activists, Internet commentators, intellectuals, former libertarians and others who have become disenchanted with the Republican Party and the conservative establishment. The Alt Right has taken a keen interest in Donald Trump, viewing the leading GOP presidential contender as a powerful threat to not only the Republican Party, but to the entire political establishment.

Dr. Kevin MacDonald, editor of both The Occidental Observer and The Occidental Quarterly, two scholarly publications focusing on white identity and interests, spoke second, focusing on the rise of Trump and how the maverick businessman turned presidential contender has changed the political landscape in America. Trump’s America-first populism is threatening the political establishment in Washington, D.C., while his entirely rational statements and positions on immigration, free trade and globalization, and foreign policy—not to mention his denunciation of political correctness—have greatly impacted the political discourse in this year’s presidential election, opening up space for formerly marginalized and demonized ideas.

MacDonald’s inspiring and powerful speech addressed, among other topics, the Republican Party’s failure to champion the interests of the white working and middle class—its key constituency and voting block—while serving and advancing the interests of Wall Street, international capitalism, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Israel lobby. Trump, who was front and center the entire evening, is challenging the GOP establishment in a major way, leading the neoconservatives and Israel-firsters who have long dominated the Republican Party to hysterically denounce the GOP front-runner and pledge their support for Hillary Clinton.

Richard Spencer spoke last, focusing much of his attention on Trump’s campaign as well. Spencer highlighted Trump’s popular appeal, his boldness and willingness to say what needs to be said, despite the strangling effects of politic correctness. Although Spencer made clear that Trump is no white nationalist, he emphasized the positive impact his campaign has had on the political discourse in this country.

At least 20 unhinged protesters picketed the Reagan building, denouncing those in attendance as “racists” and “white supremacists,” while attempting to photograph attendees to expose their identity online. Radical leftist protesters have become increasingly hostile, vitriolic, and disruptive, particularly at Trump rallies. Despite the rowdy protesters outside, the conference was overall a major success by all indications.

“The NPI conference was, to me, all about being around others who believe in our struggle,” Angelo John Gage, a popular YouTube commentator and former Marine, explained to this reporter. “Nothing feels better than being around people who are in the same struggle as you, meeting up with them in the real world and shaking their hands, rather than clicking ‘like’ on their videos, articles or comments. What stood out to me was the perfect combination of comedy, content, and camaraderie, all blended together to deliver an informative and entertaining evening.”

Gage continued, reflecting the thoughts and views of many in attendance: “To me, NPI was not just a conference, but an experience. It inspired me. I felt like that’s where I belonged—around normal European Americans who simply want to ensure a future for their people.”

NPI also holds an annual fall conference each year, usually in late October over Halloween weekend. With the election season heating up, and the Trump candidacy engendering more and more hostility from the mainstream mass media and political establishment, the upcoming fall conference will no doubt generate tremendous interest.

  • “Although Spencer made clear that Trump is no white nationalist …”

    Yea, but who is these days? It seems to be a term in transition.

    ***

    It’s such a central question, perhaps you could write up your views on it, and interview the likes of MacDonald, Spencer and Paul? Isn’t it weird that such a fundamental question never gets asked?

    Even a one line question, “What is White nationalism to you (who’s in, who’s out); and are you a White nationalist?” could elicit helpful responses.

    Frex, I have always assumed Spencer was perfectly open to Jews, high IQ Asians, and nice brown and Black people who obey the laws and allow for free discussion of race differences, a la Taylor and Rothbard; and if so, then his shade of WN isn’t mine. But I should like to be corrected if wrong, and I imagine many of his supporters would be disappointed if I were right.

    • Hi Nick,

      Thanks for bringing this up. I’m a recovering liberal from the West Coast still trying to process the varied (and not always mutually compatible) messaging coming out of the alt-right. To cut to the point, my research has led me to believe that there is indeed a dangerous and hostile Jewish oligarchy which is targeting us (Whites) specifically as a RACE, while indoctrinating us to believe either (or even more weirdly, BOTH) that race doesn’t exist or that racial identification (for us) is the utmost immorality. I understand harboring defensive hostility toward this group. With respect to “high IQ Asians, nice brown and Black people who obey the laws and allow for free discussion of race differences,” I’m not so convinced…do you believe Whites should be hostile or uncooperative toward these groups? Do you believe that a White ethno-state is the best form of society? If so, why? I’m asking this honestly and with humility; I don’t pretend to know the answers and I admit a lot of this content is relatively new to me…if you or anyone reading would be willing to share why you believe it’s important for Whites to organize against other groups (not speaking about the Judeo-Masonic oligarchy, but just about other middle and working class Asian, Brown and Black people currently inhabiting the U.S.) I would love to hear why. In your version of White Nationalism, could there still be some territories that are multi-racial, maybe akin to protectorates? The area I grew up in is so densely multi-racial and multi-cultural it’s honestly bizarre for me to imagine reorganizing it entirely and I’m not sure it would be worth the effort…anyway, any thoughts of yours or other readers would be much appreciated.

      • It seems to me that we know Whites are targeted as a race only because of the constraints Jews impose against our pursuing self-consciousness, self-interest and self-rule (essential for our survival) – constraints not imposed against other groups, especially their own.

        Freed of Jewish rule Whites wouldn’t be forced to adhere to those same policies, but anyone who chose for himself a future of dhimmitude, Detroititude or Gringotude could have at it! Kalispell, Montana will be much friendlier.

        • From one perspective, I can understand your belief that once freed of jewish rule, Whites would not be necessary forced to endure under the same anti-White policies that were created and enforced by evil jewish tyrants. But, I think that you are making the same mistake that I’ve made for far longer than I would be embarrassed to admit.

          You are committing the sin of having far too much respect for the intelligence, commons sense, survival instincts and racial health of your fellow Whites. Due to the last 60 or so years of jewish media control, jewish dominance of our institutions of higher learning, jewish control of our publishing houses – the vast and overwhelming percentage of White Americans are so brainwashed and so consumed with White guilt that our people cannot be expected to be cured of those suicidal pathologies over night.

          Take, for example, White elites like John Kasich, or Paul Ryan, or Ron and Rand Paul, or John Boehner, Mitt Romney or every member of the loathsome Bush family or Clinton family – or, for that matter, close your eyes and pick any RINO cuck off of the stack of sleaze balls who comprise the current GOP RINO-cuck establishment. If jewish rule were officially ended tomorrow and an announcement was made from the Oval Office and carried by network satellite TV and broadcast to every corner of the world – the names of these self-hating white race traitorous cockroaches would still hold their positions in the ranks of our elite political class. And, every one of these losers is fatally infected with the disease of anti-White self-hate.

          Which means – the anti-White policies and tyranny infrastructure that the jews had already established before they were booted out of the USA would still be in place, and the only difference now would be that these policies would be enforced by the White race traitors cited above. And, they would call themselves ‘Social Justice Warriors’ while doing it.

          Conclusion: Once, and if, we are ever able to get the jews stranglehold over our people broken, we are going to have to decide what needs to be done to those within our own race who are our mortal enemies. They are our biggest enemies.

          • Non-issue. They are a handful.

            People like the Pauls, the Clintons and the Bushes and their miniscule number of supporters willing to openly express genocidal race-replacement ideals are far fewer in number than the murderers, rapists and thieves normally collected by criminal detection.

            Polls are clear and sweeping everywhere. White people do not support the race- and nation-replacing policies of our Jew-installed pols, we oppose them and want an alternative.

          • Furthermore, absent Jewish control of what is ‘social justice’ – many of those SJWs will come to a more holistic, organic, natural, yoghurty, San Francisco appreciation of social justice – just like Greg Johnson says – they’ll apply it to Whites equally. Whites are the fairest – chromatically and literally. We have nothing to fear from fairness.

  • Donald Trump cannot possibly be ” for real” . This man could not possibly be a real estate magnate in Manhattan, a Jewish stronghold, without the support of the Jews. His daughter is married to a real estate tycoon. who is ,incidentally. Jewish. As a result, she converted to Judaism, and their children are brought up as Jews. That is Donald Trump’s grandchildren are Jews. And Trump is already singing the Jewish mantra: ” I love Israel.” Do I have to say anymore about the fake’s loyalty. His loyalty is certainly not to America and the vast majority of the American people.
    Furthermore, Hilary Clinton has already been selected for the presidency by the ruling Jewish cabal and, of course, she will win and be the next presidency Wake up and see reality for a change, and stop dreaming.

    • Perhaps you are right, perhaps not. Is Trump ” Jew wise”? It would be impossible to attain the wealth he has without “knowing” the “Jew”. Does that mean he cares nothing for the Amerika his children will live in ( and he has a couple younger kids)? Not necessarily. Does Trump want to see Amerika become a 3rd world cesspool? I doubt it. Trump is drawing attention to immigration, legal and illegal. THAT is waking some White people up. Will they follow the trail that inevitably leads to the Jew? Hard to say, but they will start to “think White” again, and that is a good thing.

      Is it possible Trump is playing us like a base fiddle? Could be. The Jews are masters at playing people and they have shills from all walks of life. They’ve been perfecting their devious machinations for thousands of years. They know how to lure people into their web, however, if we can harvest the “Trump Trumpeters” and lead them to the truth we know, that works to our advantage. So who Trump is really playing for is slightly less important (at this moment) than capitalizing on his notoriety and using it to our advantage. Every White man we wake up is one less sleeper. The Jew knows the White man won’t be asleep for much longer. And once we awaken, all bets are off. So do your part, in any way you can to wake up your fellow Whites to “think White”. And keep in mind, there is hope and our hope lies in the fact that the Jew ALWAYS overplays his hand. Always.

  • Amazingly no one has figured out the jewish power broker behind Donald Trump yet? There’s what 8 billion people on this planet and no one has even published a blog about it yet? Hint: The true jewish power behind Donald Trump is hiding in plain site, for all to see.

  • Regarding the definition of ‘White nationalism,’ it is an ideology and trend that advocates for a racial definition of national identity. It is used primarily in the context of American politics, since in Europe the fight is more over specific white ethnic groups and their struggle. In the US, it means a pan European-American movement that advocates for the collective interests of US citizens of European heritage. This often translates into the advocacy for the creation of a white homeland in north America, but this is not always the case. White nationalism also does not, or should not, mean that one advocates for a world wide political union of white nations, since that is not feasible or desirable. This aspect of the definition is incorrect. People sometimes mistake calls for universal white solidarity or camaraderie with calls for a great global white empire, which is unfortunate.
    White nationalism is a broad movement, capable of incorporating differing polities, i e, Jacksonian democracy, George Wallace campaigns, and the various original Fascist offshoot parties of the 1930’s can all be characterized as being at least semi white nationalist, as it is an umbrella term.

    I see nothing wrong with ‘white nationalism’ …Disagreements with individuals who happen to be white nationalists should not mean that you now feel like you should jettison white nationalism, which seems to be happening with some of us, some on the Alt Right look like they are embracing a civic nationalism instead.
