“”You know what? You know what our problem is? The fertility rates. We need to be making more beautiful white Christian babies. Enough is enough [...] You know what the problem is? All the Muslims coming into Europe.

“”Everyday they poison our bodies with harmful chemicals, pollute our minds with sick, repetitive propaganda, and corrupt our souls with godless nihilism! Enough!
|—Nick Fuentes, competing for "best crazy racist uncle impression" contest|
He operates and hosts the America First livestream podcast, which is currently hosted on a proprietary website after he was banned from both YouTube and DLive. He previously co-hosted the Nationalist Review podcast with fellow neo-Nazi James Allsup, from its founding until January 16, 2018.
For an introduction to Fuentes' political beliefs (centered around "Marxist infiltration", "rootless global elites", and "invasion by nonwhites"), we recommend his blogpost "The Villain America Needs". He begins with an apocalyptic tale about impending doom of the country:
My timely birth [in 1998] allowed me to watch on the nightly news the spoils of the American experiment squandered for one final time before the dying gasp of a once exceptional people as the free world and economic abundance of Ronald Reagan was inherited by the lizard people. To understand how far the country has come from the virgin constitutional republic born of the Revolution to the corrupt, unitary technocracy of a new Statist century. From George Washington to George W. Bush. Everyone knows the country is going to hell and if you don't then you're a liberal apologist arguing why the change your President promised you is all that it was cracked up to be.
He proceeds to blame the evil liberals and multiculturalism:
My generation is the generation of hopelessness. They don't see it that way because Buzzfeed can use upbeat stock background music, punchy graphics, and a self-righteous punk weakling to dress up cultural suicide as egalitarianism. But we know better. With George W. Bush we got a neoconservative Utopian who could not wage the culture war and when center right Dubya collapsed in 2008 we got a communist Islamist sympathizer whose entire candidacy and governance was wholly founded on the ignorance of the masses and a media that would just plain lie night after night.
And in 2015, it looked as though we would have the proverbial "more of the same," "lesser of two evils," "business as usual." 2016 looked to be a grand orgy of stockholm syndrome induced cultural cuckholdry in which we, the free men and women of the United States of America, would grudgingly but unflinchingly elect either our third bumbling conservative Bush lite or our second white trash criminal Clinton. Having spent the entire century being blown up by IEDs in the desert. The worst economy since the great depression. The largest government in the history of the world. Flagrant lawlessness at the highest level. An invasion from the South and from the MidEast. An education system infiltrated and conquered decades ago by Marxists. A Bill of Rights in peril by the death of an actual conservative Supreme Court Justice, the last soul in the way of the loss of the republic. A terror state, a new Cold War, a billion people saying they own the ocean, more dollars in debt than atoms in the universe, Seth Rogen, boys are girls and girls are boys, facts are racist, feminism, infanticide as a right, Tumblr.
It doesn't get better from there.
Like many extremists on the far-right, Fuentes is a shitposter troll, in which he tries to disguise his extremely bigoted, racist, and sexist viewpoints using "irony", cartoonish memes and "just joking" banter. If advocating that someone should beat up their wife sounds like a "funny joke" to you, Fuentes is your type of "humorist".
Antisemitic/Islamophobic rant on Right Side Broadcasting
The First Amendment was not written for Muslims, by the way. It wasn't written for a barbaric ideology that wanted to come over and kill us. It was written for Calvinists. It was written for Lutherans and Catholics, not for Salafists, not for Wahabists, not for the Saudi royal family. Don't think the founders had that one in mind. And it also was intended for citizens, not for immigrants. If the First Amendment protected everyone's right to have their religion and express it in every country, we'd have our police in the Congo or in Uganda fighting against the Lord's Resistance Army. And you never hear that side of the story on the mainstream media, and why not? Why don't we hear about it? Why do none of our elected officials talk about this or like this? They know it's true. Why don't we hear about in the mainstream media? We don't hear about it on Fox News, by the way, either. And why not?
He proceeded to argue that "globalists" and "the people behind CNN" should be killed, directly calling for and inciting political violence against reporters and several dozen media executives:
Who runs the media? Globalists. Time to kill the globalists. I don't want to not watch CNN. I don't want CNN to go out of business. I don't want CNN to be more honest. I want people that run CNN to be arrested and deported or hanged because this is deliberate. This is not an accident. It's not, "Oh, you know journalists have a liberal bias because they're educated, and educated people tend to be" — none of that. It is malicious intent. There is a design, there is an agenda here. And the people behind CNN that are pushing outright lies, and you see the people who try and expose the truth are cut off so obviously. They get their mics cut off, and they say, "Oh, whoops! We've lost the signal! Technical difficulties!"
I want this country to have Catholic media, Catholic Hollywood, Catholic government. I want this to be a Catholic occupied government, not a Jewish occupied government.
Fuentes genuinely believes that different races are not just biologically, but spiritually different. Fuentes calculated his own "spiritual whiteness" at 91%. A voluntary DNA test from 23&Me revealed his ancestry as 79% European and 14.8% Native American. Of course, some of his followers immediately told him Ancestry.com was better, as 23&Me "lied" to "mess with racists". The accuracy of these racial DNA tests are of unknown and unvalidated accuracy.
(Jim Crow) was better for (Black people) too…”They had to drink out of a different water fountain,” big fucking deal. “Oh no, they had to go to different schools. Their water fountain in that famous picture was worse.” Who cares? Grow up, drink out of the fucking water fountain. It’s water, it’s the same. Even it was bad, who cares. We all agree, it’s better for them, it’s better for us. It’s better in general.
Fuentes adamantly claims not to be a white supremacist, calling the term an "anti-white slur" and preferring to position himself as a "Christian conservative". Of course, this "cloaking" of his ideology fools few people (certainly not the US Justice Department.)
You can call us racists, white supremacists, Nazis, & bigots. You can disavow us on social media from your cushy Campus Reform job. But you will not replace us. The rootless transnational elite knows that a tidal wave of white identity is coming. And they know that once the word gets out, they will not be able to stop us. The fire rises!
Unite the Right rally attendance
University "speaking engagements"
On March 6, 2019, Fuentes held a public event at Iowa State University in Ames, IA. Fuentes actually didn't have permission to speak in a University classroom, and was ejected by the police and sent to a designated Free Speech area. He delivered a speech in the cold at 8:00 PM to a group of mostly detractors. Two conservative student organizations located near the University both denied involvement, but the Iowa State Daily reported that the local Turning Point USA chapter was the most likely candidate. Incidentally, that TPUSA chapter had lost its Student Organization privileges in Fall 2018, explaining why Fuentes was kicked out by University police.
Nick Fuentes thinks the Holocaust didn't really happen that much. Speaking in an openly-published video about Adolf Hitler, a smiling, gleeful Fuentes spoke of "the two hundred to three hundred-thousand Jews that he killed during the Holocaust" and "those two hundred to three hundred-thousand Jews". This is a common Holocaust denial lie by Neo-Nazis to deliberately downplay the gigantic scale of the monstrous crime that was the Holocaust. The empirically-proven number of Jews murdered by Nazis is 5.6 to 6 million, which is 20 to 30 times larger than Fuentes' lie.
Radicalizing children to become secret Nazis
Nick Fuentes has recently started going further and further off the deep end by giving advice to radicalized right-wing extremists on how to avoid getting caught, telling children the following:
"If you get redpilled, don't tell your mom. If you get redpilled, don't tell your mom. If you get redpilled, don't tell your parents, alright? [...] DON'T TELL MOM AND DAD! [...] If you get redpilled, play it close to the chest, don't tell anybody, keep it to yourself, keep it to you and your online friends, alright? "
“”Masterson: Wait, you don't believe the Holocaust but you think the Bible's right about dinosaurs and humans living together?
Fuentes: Correct, correct.
Initially, he dipped his toe into the highly controversial issue of dinosaurs with some straight-up dino denial. He stated, "I find it hard to believe, about the dinosaurs. Y'know, look: okay, they say they got fossils? I just find it very hard to believe. Oh, like giant monsters? Giant reptiles walking on the planet? I'm the crazy one? [...] Y'know, let's call ALL the BS out — these giant fish and giant... giant, y'know, insects, and giant birds, and giant everything! What? That's retarded. [...] Catholic Groypers are gonna come up, beat the shit out of you with a Bible."
Later, he walked back the total dino denial, claiming he never denied that dinosaurs existed and was just asking questions about it to "trigger people". He switched his position to one of human–dinosaur coexistence, saying: "it's biblical, bro."
LGBT and homosexuality
Fuentes claimed that half of homosexuals are pedophiles on a livestream, and said that Sam Hyde "did the numbers". However, Hyde is a troll comedian known for extreme jokes, who had earlier clarified that he had made the claim in an effort to troll people. In fact, a large study by the world renowned sexologist Ray Blanchard, which measured the blood flow in the penises of men who were shown images of underage boys and girls, found that gay men were no more likely to have pedophilic interests than straight men. Pedophilia is often mistakenly blamed on gay men since roughly a third of child sexual abuse victims are male. This is a logical fallacy, because most child abusers will molest a child of any gender given the opportunity. Since parents often guard their daughters from risk of abuse, child abusers will ultimately target boys due to ease of access and less risk of being caught. This is supported by the fact that the vast majority of identified perpetrators of the sexual abuse of boys are a heterosexually married relation of the victim. The rest are unrelated to the child, for example, a priest, teacher or authority figure who are also frequently heterosexually married. Since boys are 50% of the population and much less guarded, a child molester has more opportunity to victimize a male child.
In January 2020 Fuentes joined CatboyKami (cat boy), a YouTuber and alt-right personality, in a day-long livestream. The catboy date generated controversy online, with many Fuentes fans speculating on Fuentes sexuality. Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer went on an angry rant about Fuentes' appearance in the livestream with catboy.
Fuentes apparently hates homosexuals and women so much that he was able to overcome his hatred of Muslims to side with the Taliban, pointing out that the group opposes "abortion, vaccines, and gay marriage".
After Matt Gaetz was hit with allegations of a sexual relationship with a seventeen-year-old girl, Fuentes asserted that it was OK because "it's very traditional" and repeatedly asserted that it was just a relationship with a large age gap. He also claimed that the age of consent is a radical feminist invention, rather than an important tool used to safeguard children, and that the only problem was that it was premarital.
Fuentes supports the Taliban's prohibition on vaccines, believing that they're part of a conspiracy to poison the American people. He has also referred to the coronavirus vaccine as "gene therapy" and linked it to the spread of AIDS. He once threatened to take up arms against anyone who tries to give him a vaccine.
America First Political Action Conference
Ordinary GOP conferences, like the once sober and serious but now populist, ideological and culturally reactionary Conservative Political Action Conference, aren't extremist enough for Fuentes. Instead, Fuentes and his fan base (who call themselves "Groypers" due to, naturally, a 4chan meme involving Pepe the Frog) have, since 2020, organized an alternative event to CPAC called the America First Political Action Conference. The conference, according to its website, offers a chance for "true patriots" to "mingle with like-minded Americans fighting to save this nation." According to the ADL, what this event is really about is a gathering for those who wish to normalize white nationalism and other extremist views (such as homophobia, misogyny, antisemitism, racialism, and extremist anti-immigration viewpoints) into the conservative movement.
The event has attracted the sort of noxious GOP speakers that you would expect, e.g. politicians long associated with white nationalist and/or extremist anti-immigrant rhetoric, such as Paul Gosar, Steve King, Michelle Malkin, and Marjorie Taylor Greene. Other guests include racists such as Jared Taylor, alt-right trolls such as Baked Alaska and Milo Yiannopoulos, and assholes such as Joe Arpaio.
The event, and particularly the appearance of national GOP politicians at them, have often aroused controversy due to the extremist rhetoric at the event, especially the rhetoric coming out of Fuentes. In 2021, Fuentes wailed about America losing its "white demographic core" and defended the participants of the 2021 U.S. Capitol riot, even proclaiming that "we need a little bit more of" the sort of "energy" displayed by the insurrectionists.  In 2022, Fuentes complained about diversity in America, stating that America's secret sauce was "young white men". He then praised Vladimir Putin for his unprompted invasion of Ukraine that was happening while the 2022 AFPAC event was going on, leading to a chant of "Putin! Putin!" from the crowd. "Joking" about the general distaste for Putin's invasion in most non-white nationalist Western media, he even offered up a bit of coded praise for Adolf Hitler.
By March 2023, however, Fuentes's brand had grown so toxic, even CPAC wanted nothing to do with them — Fuentes (along with several of his "Groypers") were removed from CPAC when they tried to attend due to Fuentes' "hateful racist rhetoric". Instead of a conference, Fuentes decided to hold a "rally" near the CPAC location, with no other advertised guests. Now toxic to the GOP, Fuentes' rallies became even more extreme than before. During this rally, Fuentes declared that he wanted to eradicate Satanism, feminism, liberalism, and Judaism; paying particular attention to the latter, Fuentes spouted International Jewish conspiracy theories and overtly praised Hitler.
At another "rally" on July 2023, Fuentes went even further, spouting Christian nationalist-tinged genocide advocacy. Declaring that "we want a Christian future in our lifetimes", Fuentes declared a "holy war" against Jews, concluding his speech with the statement "because we’re willing to die in the holy war, we will make (the Jews) die in the holy war.". This was too much even for the far-right friendly video hosting platform Rumble, which removed two videos streamed from the rally due to them being an "incitement to violence". This removal caused furor among Fuentes's Groypers and other virulently antisemitic figures such as Andrew Torba (CEO of Gab).
2021 coup attempt
Fuentes and fellow-Nazi Baked Alaska both participated in the 2021 U.S. Capitol riot that was incited by Donald Trump, and each separately livestreamed the destruction and theft that occurred. Subsequently, Fuentes was banned from DLive, the streaming website he had been using to host his "America First" podcast since being booted from YouTube. Fuentes claimed that he did not enter the Capitol building, but with all of the other lying that he does, we are skeptical to take him at his word. At the least, supporters of Fuentes with "America First" merchandise appeared in videos and photos captured inside the Capitol building during the event.
Fuentes was banned from Twitter on July 9, 2021 at a time when he had more than 125,000 followers. His account was reinstated in January 2023, following the acquirement of the platform by Elon Musk. However, his reinstatement was very brief, and he was banned again less than a day later.
Modern-Day Debate appearance
In February 2022, Fuentes hosted AFPAC, a far-right, white nationalist convention alternative to CPAC. Several far-right pundits were hosted, from Jesse Lee Peterson to Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Fuentes praised Russia and Putin during his speech (even praising comparisons of Putin to Hitler).
In July 2022, Fuentes appeared on a debating panel on the channel Modern-Day Debate. The topic was "Is There a War on Men?", with Fuentes predictably arguing the "yes" side. His "arguments" in this debate included that the higher rate of autism diagnoses in men is evidence of a plot by the liberal elite to make men retarded through socialization, as well as that women are inherently stupider and more sinful than men. As a result, Fuentes claimed that he would never want a woman doing any highly-qualified job even if she was more qualified than all the men, to the point of claiming he "would rather get taken out and shot in the head" than be treated by a female doctor. In the same interview, he asserted that men have the right to beat and rape their wives because the Bible gives them authority over women, and claimed that all women will go to Hell.
In November 2022, Fuentes was seen associating himself with Kanye West, defending his anti-semitic remarks. In December 2022, Fuentes and West appeared in InfoWars with Alex Jones. West proceeded to make more anti-semitic remarks and praised Hitler and the Nazis. Afterwards, West and Fuentes were in an interview with Gavin McInnes where they continued to deny the holocaust and praise Hitler, with Fuentes at one point bragging that "kids loved Hitler".
