The Flight 93 Election
Just finished reading this great alt-right essay in the Claremont Review of Books. Of course, it’s only alt-right if the alt-right includes more than just a bunch of Jew-hating Stormfront types. I think that alt-right is a bigger umbrella than that. An umbrella which includes my blog.
The pseudonymous Publius Decius Mus previously wrote a pro-Trump essay for the alt-right Unz Report. He has now made it into the big time.

I don’t have anything to say about the contents of the essay because there’s nothing in there I haven’t already read in comments on my blog. It could very well have been something Steve Sailer wrote except that Sailer doesn’t write with the author’s verbal dexterity. It reminds me of Mencius Moldbug.
The big news is not in the contents, but that an alt-right screed is being taken seriously by the mainstream.
