Charlottesville & The Alt-Right: Just Say NO to Identity Politics

Racism and identitarianism on the right should be opposed just as strongly by individualists as the social justice movement.

What happened in Charlottesville was bleak. I'd wager that Antifa probably started the majority of the violence, but in any case, it's clear that many in the Alt-Right came looking for a fight, and the two groups seemed more than happy to beat on each other.

Right now people seem to be arguing over who's more to blame, or who's worse, but frankly I think that's ridiculous. Both sides are regressive, both sides are un-American, and both sides engage in the exact same identity politics. There's plenty of condemnation to go around, and there's no need to pick and choose here.

The alt right wants a nation with no poc and the alt left want one with no whites. I think we can work something out here.
Btw, don't forget to film with the poor mic AND florescent lights for the next one.
