When I heard Vice was doing a show on the Charlottesville rally, I was skeptical. I loved the imagery of the torch rally at the Thomas Jefferson statue and felt pride at the statement our kin made the next day. I hoped Vice would not ruin the event with biased, anti-White reporting. Although Vice did try to do this, the show, which you can watch on HBO GO, actually highlighted an interesting dynamic that makes Fascism attractive.
That dynamic was on full display as reporter Elle Reeve, a blonde Aryan woman, walked beside Libertarian Fascist Chris Cantwell. Cantwell marched without a shirt, showing a chiseled physique. He oozed alpha masculinity and appeared as a man of action and a man in charge. At the sight of Cantwell, Reeve appeared flush, perhaps in a state of arousal. She asked Cantwell about the pro-White movement, giving him a fair opportunity to discuss his point of view in an intelligent, articulate manner (Compare this to Megyn Kelly’s treatment of Alex Jones). He perfectly reflected how adherence to fascism can improve one’s life. After Cantwell courageously took a macing (for a second time) from Antifa terrorists, Reeve was there, offering a dose of feminine empathy and concern. Moreover, as Cantwell hurriedly stepped into a bus to leave the riot, Reeve followed close behind and grabbed a seat right beside him. She seemed comfortable there among her own race, something she probably doesn’t often experience in the world of multiculturalism
To appease the left wing, of course, Reeve will deny she felt anything positive toward Cantwell and the Alt-Right. Her piece had the token social justice virtue signalling and sob story moralizing. And she is now doing the interview tour saying the same things. Looking beyond the surface, however, Vice accurately presented Antifa terrorists as the prime catalysts of the violence in Charlottesville and showed how local law enforcement did nothing to stop it.
It will be hard for Reeve to deny the obvious sexual tension between her and Cantwell displayed in the piece. That was the strongest appeal of the show, and perhaps, one of the strongest attractions to fascism itself. Most apparent of this was when Reeve accepted Cantwell’s invitation to go up to his hotel room and check out his guns. We can only imagine if she checked out a different kind of gun, once the cameras went off.
I recommend the Vice piece to anyone interested. Fascism, and its tenets of truth and realism, are on the rise in America. Vice does a good job to further this fact.
