A prominent conservative writer, lionized by Silicon Valley billionaires and a U.S. senator, used a pen name for years to write for white supremacist publications and was a formative voice during the rise of the racist "alt-right," according to a new HuffPost investigation.

Richard Hanania, a visiting scholar at the University of Texas, used the pen name "Richard Hoste" in the early 2010s to write articles where he identified himself as a "race realist." He expressed support for eugenics and the forced sterilization of "low IQ" people, who he argued were most often Black. He opposed "miscegenation" and "race-mixing." And once, while arguing that Black people cannot govern themselves, he cited the neo-Nazi author of "The Turner Diaries," the infamous novel that celebrates a future race war.

A decade later, writing under his real name, Hanania has ensconced himself in the national mainstream media, writing op-eds in the country's biggest papers, bending the ears of some of the world's wealthiest men and lecturing at prestigious universities, all while keeping his past white supremacist writings under wraps.
