Fascionista Week in Charlottesville: think of The Lawn as a long, green runway

The Nazi's declared victory last night, and The Daily Stormer advised the Twittler Youth to claim the spoils:

Even more thrilling was the successful rebrand Nazis' rebrand as "the Metrosexual #AltRight":

Here's the link. Among the tips offered by the Nazis' Andrew Anglin, these dos and don'ts:

In the guide, Anglin kicks off by outlining on a number of occasions “priority number one” for Nazis: “We have to be sexy.”

“We have to be hip and we have to be sexy,” he writes. “This means we have to look good, we have to look dangerous, we have to have humor, we have to look powerful and we have to look like we are in control.”

But there’s one pressing concern Anglin sees with today’s Nazis: they’re apparently all pretty fat. That’s why he notes that while “Fat people should be allowed to join groups and be involved in rallies,” the alt-right should “expect them to get it together.”

“We should help people get it together,” Anglin writes, before noting that he’s working on his “biggest diet guide ever.”

“Continued obesity should not be tolerated.”

Anglin then advocates for something he refers to as “Chad Nationalism,” which will apparently “make girls want to be our groupies” and “make us look like bad boys and heroes.”

In the post, Anglin also outlines acceptable fashion choices for the millennial Nazi: “We want to look slick and sexy,” he writes, before noting that “skinhead” style has gone out of vogue.

Writing that he will provide more details on the alt-right uniform at the next Stormer Book Club, Anglin does point out that baggy shirts will not be tolerated...

“The worst look ever is a baggy t-shirt,” he notes, along with a mirror selfie of his petite frame in a tight button-down.

And finally, Anglin lays down the law on one particular garment that he argues Nazis should never wear:

“[D]on’t ever wear shorts. Serious men in serious situations are not wearing shorts.”

And in Charlottesville- long a citadel of preppie fashion- many of the out-of-town Nazis took Anglin's advice to heart:

The Nazi version of Teen Vogue appears to be a new website:

Hatreon — pronounced HATE-ree-on — currently features fundraisers supporting Richard Spencer, one of America’s most prominent white nationalists (who has 34 “patrons” pledging to donate $362 to him a month), and Andrew Anglin, one of America’s most prominent neo-Nazis (with 50 donors pledging $869.17 a month).

Spencer called Hatreon’s founder, Cody Wilson, of Austin, Texas, to praise the service, telling him he would use it “even if you were the most left-wing Jewish communist,” according to Wilson. (Spencer confirmed the accuracy of the remarks.)

Wilson, who is best known for his efforts to produce guns through 3-D printing, described himself as an “Internet anarchist” who wants to disrupt the establishment’s status quo. He was intrigued by far-right users on social media, who sometimes post racist, sexist and anti-Semitic comments and images but also playful memes of their de facto mascot, “Pepe,” a cartoon frog. “Frog Twitter and the so-called ‘alt-right’ — there’s a lot of life there,” Wilson said. “I’m kind of happy to help it mutate.”

Another crowdfunding start-up, WeSearchr, has raised more than $150,000 for Anglin’s legal defense in a lawsuit filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the anti-extremism nonprofit, after Anglin organized a “troll storm” against a Jewish woman on his website, the Daily Stormer.

WeSearchr often sponsors fundraisers for medical bills and legal defense funds for far-right figures who have gotten in fights with left-wing anti-fascists. It also offers “bounties” — money donated by users to meet a certain objective — seeking the identities of anti-fascists involved in violent encounters.

WeSeachr’s owner, Chuck C. Johnson, a right-wing journalist and provocateur who has been banned from Twitter, told The Times in an email that it was “good business to allow free speech” and that he believes not discriminating against users’ political views might give him better protection from lawsuits.

One of WeSeachr’s other founders, Pax Dickinson, recently split from the company to start his own crowdfunding site, Counter.Fund, with an “explicit dedication against Marxist political correctness and the globalist progressive Left,” according to its website.

Dickinson was the chief technology officer of Business Insider until he was forced to resign in 2013 after sexist and racist tweets of his were uncovered by the news site Gawker. Dickinson since has channeled his entrepreneurial energies into creating financial infrastructure to sustain the far-right.
