Last week, Andrew Anglin, publisher of the Daily Stormer, the most-read neo-Nazi website, posted a story to address concerns some have voiced over aligning the Alt-Right with what has been dubbed the “Alt-Light” –– a constellation of far-right, libertarian leaning provocateurs who shy away from hardcore anti-Semitism in favor of targeting political correctness and so-called cultural Marxism.
The article, titled “Purity Tests are Absolute Poison to the Alt-Right,” warned that dismissing potential converts if they hold weaker positions would almost certainly doom the movement’s growth.
Young and old alike are bombarded with images of immodesty and immorality. In the early days of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Prophet Joseph Smith prophesied that members of the Church “would receive more temptations, be more buffeted, and have greater difficulty” with sexual immorality than with any other single challenge (Brigham Young, 1860). The so-called sexual revolution that started in the 1960s continues to impact society.“I would like to offer that the purity test is absolute poison to this movement, and we need to be aware that those pushing it are either deranged, obsessed for personal reasons with making sure we remain a fringe group, or pushing it for (((someone else))),” Anglin wrote.In the post, Anglin’s came to the defense of Tim Gionet, better known as “Baked Alaska,” who was under attack from some Daily Stormer readers after a string of recent tweets about the influence of Jews on society.That which was once considered sacred, or at least private, is now spoken of casually and with little reverence.
Those who speak up for moral values and advocate chastity before marriage and fidelity within marriage are often put down as being provincial and unsophisticated.
The entire racist radical right may be working to rebrand under the “Alt-Right” banner, a meme-crazed digital wing of the white nationalist movement known for online harassment campaigns.
But they haven’t managed to get over the infighting and hypocrisy that has riddled the movement for decades.
Behind every negative command are positive principles for our delight.
Specifically, God’s commands to wait for sex until marriage is given to both protect you and provide for you.
Gionet, the alleged founder of MAGA3X, a group throwing a high-profile inauguration party dubbed “The Deploraball,” has worked for Buzzfeed and supported Black Lives Matter.
