Infamous Neo-Nazi Nick Fuentes officially called for a dictatorship after the GOP’s failure in the Midterms.
In a disgusting display of his fascist tendencies, Neo-Nazi Nick Fuentes has officially endorsed a dictatorship, according to Right Wing Watch. The brazen desire for a fascist government came on Wednesday, as the infamous Neo-Nazi and self-described “groyper” leader reacted to the midterm election results, where Republicans floundered in their gains. The outburst should serve as a reminder that despite being removed from Twitter, Fuentes remains a dangerous force in public life, even when restrained.
Fuentes is notorious for his brazen and violent white nationalism, having participated in the infamous white supremacist rally at Charlottesville and having previously argued that Jewish people control the media and that women shouldn’t vote.
What prompted this rant, though tied to the election and the failure of the GOP to win as extensively as expected, is the presumption of ownership over societal values and principles. In his rant, Fuentes explained that:
“You gotta recognize the fact that this is a godless country…I hate it. It’s immoral. It’s wrong. It’s heinous. It’s evil. But this is an evil country, and this country will surprise you with how evil it is. And that’s why you’ve got to get this out of your head that there is some silent majority cavalry that’s going to come out of the woods and save us at the last minute. It’s not.”Nick Fuentes in a rant on November 9th, 2022.
The result of this supposed Godless, according to Fuentes, is:
“When you look at these things like abortion, it’s popular …And you can thank the Jewish media for that. Abortion is popular, sodomy is popular, being gay is popular, being a feminist is popular, sex out of wedlock is popular, contraceptives—it’s all popular at all. That’s not to say it’s good. That’s not to say I like that. Popular means that people support it, which they do. It sucks, and it is what it is, but that’s why we need a dictatorship. That’s unironically why we need to get rid of all that. We need to take control of the media or take control of the government and force the people to believe what we believe or force them to play by our rules and reshape the society.”Nick Fuentes in a rant on November 9th, 2022.
To Fuentes and his ilk, the only way to stop the supposed degeneracy of what he sees as conservative Christian values is the rejection of democracy itself and the usurpation of the people’s will and livelihood to impose his interpretation of Christian identity. It’s worth noting that Christian identity is heavily restrictive for Fuentes, who readily preaches the idea of a supposed Great Replacement of white people, a theory that has inspired mass shootings around the globe, including the Christchurch shooting of 2019 and the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting of 2018.
It should come as no surprise that Fuentes also denies the Holocaust, having previously compared the cremation of Jewish victims of Nazi atrocities to Cookie Monster baking cookies in an oven, insinuating that there was no way that six million Jewish people could be killed and cremated within the timeframe of the Holocaust.
Such a horrid ideology, disgusting as it is, should further nauseate all decent people when considering the fact that Marjorie Taylor Greene, a sitting member of Congress, spoke at Fuentes’ America First Pac event in February.
Despite ridiculous claims by Greene that she didn’t fully understand the nature of the event, which I’ve rejected before, Greene praised Fuentes as she was welcomed onto the stage moments after Fuentes praised Adolf Hitler.
All this goes to show that Fuentes’ fringe views are not as restrained as previously thought. While banning him was the right move, the fact of the matter is that there is an element of Republicans who would love nothing more than to support a Nazi such as Fuentes. Despite his overt antisemitism and fascist tendencies, Fuentes’ presence around Greene has not sunk her bid for reelection as it should have. Instead, she won her seat easily against Democratic candidate Marcus Flowers.
Nor is the GOP willing to punish her or anyone else for their fascist leanings. Indeed, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has said that Greene could get an even better committee seat than the won she lost if Republicans take the House. As it stands right now, the influence of Fascism and Fuentes’ disgusting worldview is not dead by a long shot and Americans should be worried.
