Review by Annelies Pauwels
While media generally directs its attention to the alt-right movement, Tenold analyses those groups that are active in the streets, through rallies and other actions, such as the Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP), the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), the National Socialist Movement (NSM), the Hammerskins, and Aryan Nations. He followed this scene closely from 2011 until the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in August 2017, when James Alex Fields Jr. drove his car into a crowd of counter-demonstrators, killing one and injuring 28.
ROBERT STEELE: Bullshit. The key words in the book and the review are fragmented and ineffective. There is a huge difference between whites who are nationalists and against open borders and unfair trade; white nationalists who are politically active against the persistent subversion of the traditional constitutional values as well as religious values including the family being defined and one man and one woman who procreate for the glory of God; and white voters who support Donald Trump because he feels and addresses their pain in poverty and despair.
The USA has become a rigged system, a pay to play system, in which the federal government is in enemy hands as are most state and local governments — they work for the rent-seekers and carpet-baggers that find it easier to inflate their profits by leveraging government favoritism, than to work hard and honestly.
This is why the two books by George Will and Marianne Williamson are so important. From opposite ends of the political spectrum, they arrive at the same point: we want our country back, rooted in the Constitution, love, and family values, nurturing children for our Republic’s future prosperity.
