Far-right agitators roil the conservative movement on college campuses in battle to define Trumpism - 2019-11-17
Fuentes, a Boston University dropout who lives in the Chicago suburbs, has emerged as a champion of those on the right who believe mainstream conservatism — in their words, "Conservative Inc." — has gone astray. He attended the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville but denies he is a neo-Nazi or a white nationalist.
On his "America First" YouTube show, Fuentes espouses "demographic realism." That means he takes the hardest line possible against immigration: "We're slamming the door so hard that people's faces are shattering," Fuentes says. He also expresses fear about what will happen to America as its population becomes much less white — "dramatic and radical change," he says, "that will come with not insignificant consequences and not all of them good."
Fuentes on his Internet show denounces same-sex marriage and "transgenderism" as "deviancy," and he questions U.S. foreign aid to Israel. In January, Fuentes likened the Holocaust to a cookie-baking operation led by the Cookie Monster in a video monologue that implied he questions the death toll of 6 million Jews.
