Acrimony on the Alt-Right: Predictably, the Inherent Instability of The Right Emerges

Posted by DanielS on Sunday, 18 June 2017 01:23.

Alt-Right publisher Daniel Friberg from a promotional speech for right-wing 2015

Acrimony on the Alt-Right/New Right, etc. Right: predictably, the inherent instability of The Right emerges. For those who like soap operas, the right is perhaps good for that. But their instability rather highlights the preferability of our platform for organizing nationalists in two way accountability to our interests (to us and from us); against foreign antagonists, whether elite or rank and file; and against traitors among our own, whether elite, or rank and file.

There isn’t a lot of consensus among the right - their primary orientation, against “The Left” and “equality”, was given to them by brackets (viz. Gottfried 2008), adopted then and only became the “common sense enemy” by consensus since the YKW allowed them to do that. Brackets, those in service of brackets, and those willing to sell our people-out for personal gain or sheer ideology are rife in all camps of the right.

“GREG JOHNSON TURNS DOWN DANIEL FRIBERG’S CORDIAL OFFER TO HAVE A COFFEE AT STARBUCKS”

In the latest bit of juicy infighting here in the Alt-Right, Daniel Friberg, the head honcho of intellectual (but fashy) book publisher Arktos has been defriended on Facebook by Greg Johnson, the mysterious “voice without a face” who runs the fashy (but intellectual) Counter-Currents webzine and book publisher.

The defriending follows weeks of behind-the-scenes bickering and accusations that Johnson had been bad-mouthing Friberg behind his back.

In an attempt to clear the air, Friberg who lives in Budapest, Hungary, heard that Johnson was in town on a low-profile speaking tour, and cordially invited him to have a face-to-face meeting, posting the following message on Facebook:

  Hey Greg Johnson, you have been attacking my character publicly and behind my back for close to a year now. Considering we’re neighbors here in Budapest, how about I buy you a latte at Starbucks; you can say all these things to my face. What do you think?” - Daniel Friberg

Counter Currents, “Reply to Daniel Friberg”, 18 June 2017:

Greg Johnson

5,197 words

In “Greg Johnson’s Attacks And How To Deal With Them,” Daniel Friberg and Richard Spencer claim that I made a series of accusations against Friberg in a thread on the TRS Forum. Then they demand that I substantiate these accusations or retract them and apologize. After that, they allege that I have a pattern of launching divisive and baseless attacks on important movement people, Read more …

..can’t vouch for the accuracy of this photo or caption, but that’s the caption that Greg put under it..

“Arktos CEO Daniel Friberg (left) getting chummy with Swedish antifa founder Mathias Wåg (right)”

Johnson continues..

I hate this sort of drama. But with heavy heart, I drafted this reply shortly after Friberg and Spencer’s attack was published on June 1. I would have preferred to post it in the comments thread at Altright.com, but Friberg and Spencer preemptively blocked my Disqus account. I eventually decided not to publish it at all, because the more I thought about their statement, the more ridiculous it seemed. So I thought it best to just let the controversy die and focus instead on The White Nationalist Manifesto.

But that was a mistake. Ignoring even transparently idiotic charges allows your attackers to frame your silence as guilt or weakness. Beyond that, ignoring bullies just encourages more attacks, which is exactly what Friberg launched in recent days, both on Facebook and again on the front page of Altright.com, in an article originally signed by Friberg, Jason Jorjani, and Tor Westman. Friberg has also used Matt Forney as a proxy in this battle. (Forney, by the way, is Friberg’s most vocal character witness in the present drama.)

[...]

If the best among us had any conviction, people like Daniel Friberg would have never grown into the menace that he is today. If the best among us had any conviction, they would speak out against him. If the best among us had any conviction, then the worst among us — people like Friberg, Spencer, and Forney — would have no audience for their lies and no platform from which to broadcast them. They would have no credibility, no friends, no supporters, no authors, no podcasters, and the sole audience of the tabloid freak show at Altright.com would be the chan nihilists and Left-wing press they so eagerly cultivate.

In “The Truth about Daniel Friberg”, 27 June 2017, John Morgan’s description of his experience of former Arktos colleague, publisher Daniel Friberg, indicates classic alpha-hole behavior.

                     

John Morgan writes:

When we first started Arktos, all of its founding members were basically equal, and all important decisions were made collectively. At this time, Daniel was only a minority shareholder, and he was not even appointed CEO of Arktos until several months after the company had been founded, and this was only because he asked to be and because he was the only one of us who had an MBA. The title of CEO was entirely symbolic, anyway – he didn’t have any more power than any of the other Directors. I don’t mean to denigrate Daniel’s contributions to the creation and early days of Arktos, but it is nevertheless the case that the company was always a group effort, and was not the brainchild of Daniel alone, or even mostly.

[...]

The turning point came in January 2016, when I met with Arktos’ then accountants on a trip to London. They showed me that over the previous two years, there had been a large number of transactions on Arktos’ account. When these undocumented transactions were added up in September, they totaled approximately £57,000 (approximately $90,000 at the exchange rate during the period in question), many of which were transfers into his personal account, for which Daniel had provided no receipts or other documentation. The finances were in a mess, and as one of the accountants expressed it at the time, he “couldn’t believe that the person in charge of Arktos’ finances was someone with an MBA” given the careless and amateur way in which they were being handled. I knew that some of the transactions were justified, but there were others that I had no idea about. Our accountants strongly suspected malfeasance.

[...]

All of this, coupled with the knowledge that there was possible malfeasance going on while the rest of us were being kept on subsistence salaries, really stretched my patience to the breaking point. It seemed like Daniel had come to see himself as the master and the rest of us as his servants. I knew that if I confronted him about these things, however, he would just get angry and deny everything, which is his usual way of dealing with criticism.

Morgan writes..

[...]

The last shot that Daniel takes at me in the article is in accusing me of having a “weak and passive personality.” And I have to concede that in my dealings with Daniel, I was indeed too weak and passive, something that I greatly regret now. In my eyes, I was merely trying to act decently and fairly; in Daniel’s eyes, I was merely showing weakness. I should have spoken up sooner about these problems, and I should have more strongly supported the attempt to remove him from Arktos when the shareholders came to the conclusion that that was the best course of action. This is how Daniel operates: he gets people who are idealistic and willing to accept his leadership around him and then exploits their virtues in order to pursue his own private goals. But this doesn’t cause him to respect them; if anything it only earns them his contempt. When they finally wake up to what’s going on and leave him, he just finds new people to do his bidding.

Daniel Friberg, Matt Forney, Melissa Mészáros and the very masculine Davis Aurini discuss “gama male” John Morgan.
