A serious anti-Semite has some second thoughts
One of the anti-Semitic websites where I am regularly accused of being a Jewish fifth columnist seeking the destruction of the white race is Occidental Dissent. It’s mission statement says:
Occidental Dissent is a White Nationalist website. We support the creation of a Jew-free, racially exclusive White ethnostate in North America. We also advocate the ideal of White racial and cultural preservation in Europe and throughout the Western world.The website’s author, who until recently called himself Prozium and now calls himself Hunter Wallace, has undergone a traumatic reversal concerning his own involvement with anti-Semitism. Over the last week he had been carrying on a lengthy dialog with the pro-Nazi Alex Linder of Vanguard News Network, the slogan of which is “No Jews, Just Right.” The exchange must have been going swimmingly, since just three days ago, on December 16, Prozium/Wallace was triumphantly predicting great advances for white nationalism in the coming years. He concluded:
The vanguard or spearhead of this social movement is already emerging. You can see it happening here at TOQ Online and at Occidental Observer. Ten years from now, the movement won’t be divided between “mainstreamers” and “vanguardists.” This will be a thing of the past.By “vanguardists” he evidently means Vanguard News Network and Alex Linder. He’s predicting a merging between the Linder types and the more moderate types like Jared Taylor.
Yet today, the 19th, as a result of being interviewed yesterday by Linder follower Jim Giles on internet radio, Wallace writes:
In my entire life, I have rarely felt so guilty or ashamed, or embarrassed: I had been carrying on with these people, apologizing for them, promoting them for months. I found out that I do have a moral sense. I went into the interview convinced that denouncing those to my right was a bad idea. I left the interview with the opposite point of view. It also occurred to me that I have been wrong about a lot of things.Wallace also writes
For a week or so now, I had been debating Alex Linder on various issues…. I tried hard—damn hard—to separate the good from the bad.This reminds me that the first and only time I had any contact with Linder it was instantly apparent what he was. However, Wallace deserves credit for admitting he’s been a jerk.
Wallace’s account of his interview with Jim Giles is somewhat confusedly written. He throws around a bunch of different names and it’s not clear right away what the positions of these different people are. Only gradually does it emerge that Giles is an ally of Linder’s.

Alex Linder shows his true colors.LA replies:
Linder calls for the extermination of all Jews on earth.A reader writes:
But did you actually listen to the Giles interview with Wallace? The host is deranged. He explains at one point that maybe we shouldn’t say kill all the Jews, but the leaders of a white movement need to understand that that’s what needs to be done. At the beginning he goes on about what a badass he was on the football field. Giles considers the repulsive Linder as some kind of hero.LA replies:
I did listen to quite of bit of both linked programs. Even without the exterminate-the-Jews part, which I didn’t get to, Giles is a thuggish, menacing individual. I’m not surprised to learn about the below average IQ.
