  1. Nick Fuentes, leader of the Groypers, wants to see conservatives become more socialistic. He thinks this is the best strategy for saving America, by moving conservatives more to the Left economically, while preserving their cultural Right identity. He uses a white board to illustrate what he means in this video starting at 1:20:00-1:37:00. Here is a photo of his graph in case the video gets deleted. As you can see, he places neoliberals in the cultural left/economic right quadrant; conservatives in the cultural and economic right; populists in the cultural right/economic left; and progressives in the cultural and economic left. He admits himself some problems with the distinctions, and I don't endorse the graph. So you can stop right now if you think I'm being hoodwinked by this young, Catholic troll. What's important is that Fuentes is trying to persuade his followers to persuade the conservatives to become less capitalistic. Whereas Objectivists want them to become more capitalistic. Fuentes considers himself a strategist, one of a few leaders in the America First movement, giving marching orders to the Groyper army. He recently guided their actions against Charlie Kirk and TPUSA, whom he considers neoliberals. Now he's beginning a campaign to find common ground with populists like Tucker Carlson. For several reasons Fuentes poses a real problem. He's young, witty, charismatic, well-spoken, ambitious. His focus is attracting followers and moving conservatism toward Christian nationalism. He receives a lot of monetary support on YouTube from his superchatters. His Catholic upbringing has instilled a sense of moral principle and righteousness in him. Though clearly he's willing to bend on economic principles in order to achieve his political goals. Which makes sense, since his altruistic morality aligns more with socialism than capitalism. He is engaged in the battle for conservatives, and if he wins, I don't think we'll like the results.
