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[1]

Nicholas J. "Nick" Fuentes (August 18, 1998–)[2] is the facial expression made when smelling the far-right's bullshit an alt-right commentator who operated the America First podcast and, with James Allsup, the Nationalist Review from its founding until January 16, 2018.

Views[edit]

For an introduction to Fuente's 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:

The prologue to the legend of Nicholas J Fuentes:

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 alleges that our entire culture has been "cucked" by some distant elites into believing scary untruths like "trans people exist" or "nonwhites are people too":

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. [2]

It doesn't get better from there.

Right Side Broadcast Network rant[edit]

On April 2017, Nick Fuentes (then a host for RSBN) first argued that the First Amendment "was not written for Muslims":[3]

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:

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."

RSBN issued an apology, asserting that the above was said "in jest".[4] He was later removed from RSBN.[5]

Racialism[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Racialism

Fuentes genuinely believes that different races are not just biologically, but spiritually different.[6] Fuentes calculated his own "spiritual whiteness" at 91%.[7][8]. A voluntary DNA test from 23&Me revealed his ancestry as 79% European and 14.8% Native American. Of course, some of his followers immediatly told him Ancestry.com was better, as 23&Me "lied" to "mess with racists".[9] It should be noted that the accuracy of these racial DNA tests are of unknown and unvalidated accuracy.[10]

Fittingly, Fuentes also believes that "diversity is code word for anti-white".[11]

Unite the Right rally attendance[edit]

Fuentes attended the alt-right Unite the Right rally. Afterwards, Fuentes alleged that he faced death threats and left Boston University for Auburn University.[12][13]
