Young nationalists have taken over Culture War ’s Q&As and grilled TP USA leader Charlie Kirk on his bad ideas and goofy antics. It resembles the effective 2016 trolling that helped Donald Trump humiliate his enemies and ultimately win.
It also has the advantage of taking place in the real world, giving nationalists the opportunity to dispel the false image that they’re basement-dwelling losers. It also positions ourselves as the True Right against the Phony Right and exposes their hypocrisy and failure to defend the historic American nation.
Kirk and TP USA’s leadership are fine with Israel’s status as an ethnostate, but cannot countenance any suggestion America has a core demographic group. Moreover, he supports increased immigration and believes we should “staple green cards to the diplomas” of foreign college graduates.
His submission to Israel, questionable immigration views, and all around goofiness make Kirk a perfect target for the Dissident Right. Questioners ask Kirk to defend his advocacy for the billions America gives to Israel every year, criminal justice reform, handing out visas to foreign oligarchs, mass immigration, demographic replacement, TP USA’s abandonment of social conservatism.
Sen. Paul couldn’t answer a simple question about why whites should oppose identity politics when Conservative Inc. promotes it for everyone else. Nationalists asking Kirk tough questions didn’t only begin in October, but it’s gained steam in the past few weeks.
American Identity Movement leader Patrick Casey even made a special appearance to challenge Kirk to a debate. They unearthed old clips of Nick Fuentes, who encouraged his viewers to hijack the Culture War tour, to smear him as a Holocaust denier, fascist, and anti-Semite.
The Zionist Organization of America and former Trump White House staffer Sebastian Gorky demanded Twitter ban Fuentes on the pretense that he’s a Holocaust denier. TP USA allegedly called dozens of conservative figures to demand loyalty from them and to fire anyone who supported the questioners.
They’re not going to eliminate it, and it gives young nationalists the perfect opportunity to challenge Conservative Inc. It’s much better than hosting a rally using the discredited symbols of the Old Right and needlessly brawling with the antifa. Asking the questions in MAGA hats drives home the message that Kirk and others betrayed Trump’s 2016 agenda.
The good optics dispel smears that these are just basement-dwelling losers; in actuality it’s normal college kids who want to make America great again. It’s been a rough few years for our side, but the energy unleashed by the Culture War portend good things for 2020.

Test depth: 300 ft (90 m)Complement: 6 officers, 54 enlistedArmament: After shakedown in Long Island Sound, Grouper sailed for Pearl Harbor on 30 March 1942 to join the Pacific Submarine Force, which was to play havoc on Japanese shipping. Before departing for her first war patrol, Grouper was assigned to the submarine screen which ringed the area as the American and Japanese fleets clashed in the decisive Battle of Midway.
Patrolling the fringe of the fighting on 4 June, Grouper sighted two burning enemy aircraft carriers, but could not close for attack because of heavy air cover. On that day, she was strafed by fighter planes and driven deep in a series of aircraft and destroyer attacks which saw over 170 depth charges and bombs dropped on the novice submarine.
She then put in at Midway for three days for fuel and provisions before sailing on her first war patrol on 12 June. She torpedoed and damaged two Japanese Mary (civilian) ships before returning to Pearl Harbor on 30 July.
During her fourth war patrol (21 January – 18 March 1943), Grouper rescued an aviator who had been stranded on Range Island for several days; she also located several key Japanese radar installations in the Solomon's. In addition to her regular patrol duties, which harassed Japanese shipping and tied up valuable warships desperately needed by the enemy, Grouper landed 50 men and 3,000 lb (1,400 kg) of gear on New Britain to carry on guerrilla warfare; at the same time, she rescued an American aviator who had been stranded there almost three months.
This mission is depicted in episode 21 of The Silent Service, an American TV series that aired for two seasons in 1957 and 1958. At the conclusion of her eighth patrol, Grouper headed for the States and overhaul, reaching San Francisco on 19 October 1943.
After returning to Pearl Harbor on 7 January 1944 for additional repairs, the veteran submarine sailed for her ninth war patrol on 22 May. This patrol netted Grouper what was to be her last kill of the war, Kumanoyama Mary, which she sank in a night surface attack on 24 June.
She stood lifeguard duty during several air strikes and rescued seven downed aviators during raids on the Plans in September 1944. Returning to Pearl Harbor from her 12th and last war patrol on 26 April 1945, Grouper sailed the following day for San Francisco and overhaul.
She returned to Pearl Harbor on 6 August, but V-J Day cancelled plans for another patrol, and on 9 September, Grouper, in company with Too and Blackish, sailed for New London. These operations ended 5 March 1950 as Grouper entered the Mare Island Naval Shipyard for conversion to the Navy's first hunter-killer submarine “.
With the addition of a snorkel and extensive sonar and radar facilities, Grouper emerged from the yard on 27 June 1951 to pioneer in research on the deadly submarine-versus-submarine warfare. In this duty, she ranged along the East Coast from Nova Scotia to Florida, as well as participating in Caribbean exercises.
Her forward torpedo room was converted into a floating laboratory; work benches and additional berths for scientists were installed, and various types of sonar gear were added topside. Her duties as a floating laboratory took her frequently to the Caribbean and Bermuda, although she retained New London as her home port and engaged in operations there and as far north as Nova Scotia.
In December 1962, Grouper entered the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard for overhaul and modification to prepare for further work in this field. In November 1965, the submarine again entered the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard for overhaul and equipment modifications to increase her usefulness as a floating underwater sound laboratory.
At the beginning of 1967, Grouper was at New London preparing to resume gathering knowledge of underwater sound propagation. Up until the end of 1968, Grouper was still adding accomplishments as a floating laboratory to her long and outstanding record during both war and peace.
In May 1965 Grouper surpassed the record previously held by O-4 for serving the longest as the oldest submarine in the US Navy. “These World War II shipwrecks are important historical monuments, but are also valuable habitat for fish,” said Katrina Johnson, the paper's first author and a senior at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.
For instance, the detailed photos allowed the team to measure the size of a grouper hovering beside the rivet of the U-boat's hull or to document the position of a wreck fish beside the barrel of the deck gun. “Seeing so many large predators on such a relatively small habitat begs the question of how and whether they are feeding on these sites,” said Chris Taylor, Ph.D., a research ecologist at NCC OS and a co-author of the study.
The success of the joint archaeological-ecological mission has opened the door to additional collaborative ventures, which could potentially be carried out by unmanned underwater vehicles in the future.

The earliest known variation of the Pepe illustration was submitted to a thread on 4chan's /v/ board on March 25th, 2016 (shown below).
On July 28th, YouTuber Savings uploaded a video titled “Grouper Mesmerizes you to sleep.” Editor depressing midget posted a variation of Grouper merged with the character Kojak to /r/Kojak (shown below, left).
That month, the that_grouper Twitter feed was launched, which highlights exploitable variations of the illustration (shown below, middle, right). Over the next month, Twitter accounts appearing to post content in favor of the alt-right began using photoshop variations of the Pepe illustration as their profile avatar.
Those targeted, mocked and/or trolled by the group include Ben Shapiro, Charlie Kirk, Dan Crenshaw, Trump Jr. and an American conservative nonprofit organization Turning Point USA. On October 29th, 2019, a Turning Point USA event at the Ohio State University was sabotaged by a several attendee who asked Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk provocative, anti-Israel, racist and homophobic questions, including a question referencing Dancing Israelis.
On the same day, Turning Point USA CCO Benny Johnson tweeted about the trolling questions (shown below, left), with Groupers leader Nicholas J. Fuentes responding on Twitter (shown below, right). On October 30th, 2019, Twitter user @EdwardBChang made the first tweet referring to this and previous actions taken by Groupers against TP USA as “Grouper War “, with the tweet receiving over 60 retweets and 460 likes.
In the following days, more Twitter accounts associated with the movement made tweets referring to Grouper Army's actions against TS UPA as “Grouper War including tweets by the movement leader Nicholas J. Fuentes. Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, and Donald Trump Jr. do not seem like likely targets for a rising right-wing faction.
But much to their surprise recently, the Grouper “army” chose events hosted by Kirk and Trump to descend upon. Groupers attended a Turning Point USA conference at Ohio State University to heckle speakers with loaded questions.
The Groupers galvanize around the idea that the current Republican Party is “fake conservatism.” Basically, they try to push each conservative position farther to the right by supporting a white, male, heterosexual America. They embrace white nationalism in support of policies that, although they have foundations in conservatism, even some Republicans find too far.
Support of Israel is one major difference between the Groupers and what they call the traditional Conservative Inc. While the Republican Party remains firm in supporting its Israeli ally, the Grouper’s extreme nationalism and anti-Semitism pushes them outside the bounds of normal right-wing discourse. Fuentes is also known for casting doubt on the number of Jews that died in the Holocaust, using crude analogies relating to cookies and baking.
For example, one Grouper page posted a tweet with a photo of a blimp that says “Jews rape kids.” Fuentes, an extremely online “pundit,” thinks he can shape youth conservatism because he’s better at catering to the internet culture that many Gen Z or “Boomer” college students are inclined to consume.
“IDK if it’s post-modern or post ironic but the style and tone is very native to Boomers which is I think why people like Shapiro or Kirk imagine they’re check mating me with some of these controversies but in reality it’s just turning young people onto my content.” In the past, they have heckled speakers like right-wing talk show host Ben Shapiro, as well as Trump Jr. and Kirk.
Their goal is to expose high-profile Republicans by asking loaded questions, often about Israel and homosexuality, to prove their distance from the extreme or true right. “Turning Point is now making a concerted effort to slander all critics of their bullshit fake conservatism as ‘extremist trolls,'” @NickJFuentes tweeted.
White nationalists Patrick Casey and Jacob Lloyd will join Fuentes in West Palm Beach for the Grouper Leadership Summit. She has written for ORANGE Magazine, the Daily Texan, and most recently interned for 1010 WINS in NYC.
War (originally called Eric Burden and War) is an American funk-rock band from Long Beach, California, known for several hit songs (including Spill the Wine “, The World Is a Ghetto “, The Cisco Kid “, Why Can't We Be Friends? Formed in 1969, War is a musical crossover band that fuses elements of rock, funk, jazz, Latin, rhythm and blues, and reggae.
The band transcended racial and cultural barriers with a multi- ethnic line-up. In 1962, Howard E. Scott and Harold Brown formed a group called The Creators in Long Beach, California.
Lee Oskar and Father Dee Allen later joined as well. They all shared a love of diverse styles of music, which they had absorbed living in the racially mixed Los Angeles ghettos.
In 1968, the Creators became Nightshirt (named because Brown worked nights at a steelyard) and started performing with Deacon Jones, a football player and singer. The original War was conceived by record producer Jerry Goldstein (“ My Boyfriend's Back “, Hang on Sloop “, I Want Candy “) and singer Eric Burden (ex-lead singer of the British band the Animals).
In 1969, Goldstein saw musicians who would eventually become War playing at the Rag Doll in North Hollywood, backing Deacon Jones, and he was attracted to the band's sound. Jordan claimed that the band's goal was to spread a message of brotherhood and harmony, using instruments and voices to speak out against racism, hunger, gangs, crimes, and turf wars, and promote hope and the spirit of brotherhood.
Eric Burden and War began playing live shows to audiences throughout Southern California before entering into the studio to record their debut album Eric Burden Declares War ". The album's best known track, Spill the Wine “, was a hit and launched the band's career.
Eric Burden and War toured extensively across Europe and the United States. The subtitle of a 1970 review in the New Musical Express of their first UK gig in London's Hyde Park read: “Burden and War : Best Live Band We've Ever Seen”.
Their show at Ronnie Scott's Club in London on September 18, 1970, is historically notable for being the last public performance for Jimi Hendrix, who joined them onstage for the last 35 minutes of Burden and War's second set; a day later he was dead. They finished the tour without him and returned to record their first album as War.
War (1971) met with only modest success, but later that year, the band released All Day Music which included the singles “All Day Music” and Slipping' into Darkness “. The latter single sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A.
In 1976, War released the greatest hits record that contained one new song Summer “, which, as a single, went gold and peaked at number 7 on the Billboard chart. Also released that year where Love Is All Around by Eric Burden and War, containing mostly unreleased recordings from 1969 and 1970, and Platinum Jazz, a one-off album for jazz label Blue Note.
The latter double album had cover art to match the greatest hits album, and was half new material and half compilation, focusing on (but not restricted to) instrumental music. The group continued to attain success with their next album Galaxy (1977), and its title single was inspired by Star Wars.
War's next project was a soundtrack album for the movie Young blood in 1978. Dickerson during recording sessions for their next album (replaced by Luther Rabbi on bass who completed the album), the band considered changing their name to The Music Band, but decided at the last minute to continue as War, and use “The Music Band” as the title of a series of albums.
The group lost another member when Charles Miller (saxophone) was murdered in 1980. He had already been replaced by Pat Rizzo (ex Sly and the Family Stone) in 1979.
After making the one-off single “Cinco de Mayo” for LAX Records in 1981 (Jerry Goldstein's own label, which also reissued Eric Burden Declares War under the title Spill the Wine the same year), War signed with RCA Victor Records and recorded Outlaw (1982) which included the single plus additional singles “You Got the Power”, “Outlaw”, and “Just Because”. War's records from 1979 to 1983 were not as successful as those from the preceding decade, and after the two RCA albums, the band's activities became sporadic.
The 1987 compilation album The Best of War ...and More included two new tracks, “Living' in the Red” and “Whose Cadillac Is That? Father Dee Allen died of a brain aneurysm which struck him onstage in 1988.
In 1993, War reformed with most surviving previous members (including original members Brown, Jordan, Oskar, and Scott, and later members Hammond and Rizzo), augmented by a large line-up of supporting musicians and still under the management and production of Jerry Goldstein, and released a new album, in 1994. Lonnie Jordan opted to remain with Goldstein and create a new version of War with himself as the only original member.
Both the “new” War and the Low rider Band are currently active as live performance acts. 1996 also saw the release of a double CD compilation, Anthology (1970–1994), later updated in 2003 with a few track substitutions, as The Very Best of War.
Another CD compilation from 1999, Grooves and Messages, included a second disc of remixes done by various producers. On April 21, 2008, Eric Burden and Lonnie Jordan reunited for the first time in 37 years to perform a concert as War at the London Royal Albert Hall.
The other original surviving members were not asked to be a part of the reunion. War were unsuccessfully nominated for 2009 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In 2011, War played “Low Rider” and many other hits at the Rack n' Roll in Stamford, Connecticut, with Remember September and Westchester School of Rock. Burden, Eric; Craig, Jeff Marshall (October 2, 2002).
