So! Alt right podcast “The Right Stuff” invited me on their show to talk about the demise of Gawker.com, and I agreed. These guys are admitted and unabashed white nationalists, so that feels worth addressing.

I unequivocally and emphatically disavow their values and ideas about how the world ought to be. However, as a journalist interested in right-wing populist and neo-fascist movements (and the Internet’s function as a vector for those things), I think it behooves me to engage with the people who actually make up those movements. That might be naive! I really don’t know.

The conversation started about Gawker and ended up being about...why housing discrimination is unjust. Guess what? They do not believe housing discrimination is unjust.

Anyway, talking to them made my skin crawl.
