Well, it seems the populists have turned on Will Chamberlain, and I couldn’t be happier. After Turning Point USA fired Ashley St. Clair for hanging out with known White — fuck if I know at this point, calling them anything seems to be a strawman, I’ll just say populist, Nick Fuentes. Chamberlain defended Turning Point, despite still insulting Charlie Kirk a good number of times.
Personally, I can understand why Turning Point wouldn’t want a man like Nick Fuentes anywhere near there company. For those who don’t know, here’s a taste of what you can hear on America First:
You know what? You know what our problem is? The fertility rates. We need to be making more beautiful white Christian babies. Enough is enough […] You know what the problem is? All the Muslims coming into Europe.
My generation is the generation of hopelessness. They don’t see it that way because Buzzfeed can use upbeat stock background music, punchy graphics, and a self-righteous punk weakling to dress up cultural suicide as egalitarianism. But we know better. With George W. Bush we got a neoconservative Utopian who could not wage the culture war and when center right Dubya collapsed in 2008 we got a communist Islamist sympathizer whose entire candidacy and governance was wholly founded on the ignorance of the masses and a media that would just plain lie night after night.
Who runs the media? Globalists. Time to kill the globalists. I don’t want to not watch CNN. I don’t want CNN to go out of business. I don’t want CNN to be more honest. I want people that run CNN to be arrested and deported or hanged because this is deliberate. This is not an accident. It’s not, “Oh, you know journalists have a liberal bias because they’re educated, and educated people tend to be” — none of that. It is malicious intent. There is a design, there is an agenda here. And the people behind CNN that are pushing outright lies, and you see the people who try and expose the truth are cut off so obviously. They get their mics cut off, and they say, “Oh, whoops! We’ve lost the signal! Technical difficulties!”
Yes, I believe Chamberlain is in the right, despite the hypocrisy I’m about to point out. Just as I agree with Shapiro when he calls out NAZI rhetoric despite him being on Red Ice back in the day and even going on The 700 Club, which is hosted by known anti-Semite Pat Robertson.
Now, onto the hypocrisy.
I pointed this out back when Chamberlain defended Israel for banning Rep. Omar. According to him, Omar wanted to destroy Israel. I still wonder how he would have responded if she just called to break Israel up with anti-trust legislation.
Let’s just cut to the chase: Chamberlain has stated many times social media should not be allowed to ban people for any reason under the sun. He bluntly said such after Facebook banned Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, Alex Jones, and Milo Yiannopoulous (oh, and Louis Farrakan, but he never mentioned that part).
Here’s what Chamberlain wrote in “Platform Access Is A Civil Right.”
Conservatives should focus on passing legislation — at BOTH the state and federal levels — that protects all citizens’ access to large social media platforms on civil rights grounds. Access should be forfeitable only if one engages in unlawful speech on a platform.
Well, Turning Point USA does seem like they have a platform. Quite a large one in fact, considering how popular Charlie Kirk is among right-wing libertarians. Why is access to that platform not some kind of civil right but Twitter is?
The answer is simple, because the 2nd sounds more nonsensical than the first one despite them being based on the exact same argument.
Just read this one Tweet by Gabe Hoffman that Chamberlain retweeted:
If you’re old enough to use your own free will
Regularly thrust yourself in the public square, as a public figure
Without being pushed by your parents
Then you’re old enough to be criticized, even by journalists
Quit complaining & deal with it
But it is never okay for Twitter to take away your account.
Chamberlain's selective outrage is really what annoys me here. I myself am not a fan of Nick, I’m even blocked by him on Twitter because I called him a fraud, however, I hate hypocrites even more. Shame on this man for saying we must accept all opinions regardless of context, unless they’re a little farther to the right than he is okay with.
