White supremacy isn't wearing a costume, or new clothes, or new shoes. There is no disguise. They are using fashion as a recruiting method. Period.
And it's working for the people that can't organize themselves to be appreciated day in and day out.
This shit is the same as it always was. Stop shutting your eyes to it and you'll see it as clearly as daylight.

Everyone who knows me has seen me make jokes about some awful things. But everyone who knows me also knows I'm not a racist. As someone of Jewish ancestry, I of course condemn racism in the strongest possible terms. I have stopped making jokes on these matters because I do not want any confusion on this subject. I disavow Richard Spencer and his entire sorry band of idiots. I have been and am a steadfast supporter of Jews and Israel. I disavow white nationalism and I disavow racism and I always have.

“I have severe myopia, due to a congenital eye defect, as has been widely reported and as many people know or have seen from my squinting during public speeches. In a dark bar, I did not see these hand gestures. If I'd have realized white nationalist losers were hailing me as their leader, I'd have immediately walked off stage. I stand for, as always, race-blind nationalism. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm enjoying my honeymoon with my black husband.”

White supremacy has learned to wear a costume of respectability that fools many who aren’t very bothered by it in the first place.

The "costume of respectability" thing has been in their tactics for a long time. The most recent tactic is apparently co-opting internet culture, politically incorrect comedy and what they interpret millennial behavior to be. These days it seems they see themselves as hip, online savy IT guys who have great senses of humor that butthurts the oversensitive libtards. They're basically trying to re-frame being a white supremacist as being a nerd, only instead of being heavily into film, literature, videogames, comics and stuff that speaks to a variety of cultures, they are super into geeking out over being white.

Well, whatever they are, I heard that there could be up to 1-2 million of them, based on traffic to sites like The Daily Stormer. I'll have to look into that study to get more detail.

EDIT: Quick search on unique hit for those sites are more around 300k. However, the interviewee on 1A cited a more specific, controlled estimation. I wish I could remember their name. :\

Milo is an interesting case, because any gay people I've encountered who is very white & conservative ended up that way due to internalizing self-hatred and acting straight and "normal" as a way of life, with being out and proud LGBTQA... as bad. Milo is young and has apparently been out and proud as a flamboyant gay man for quite a white. It's why I thought he was on some Andy Kauffman shit for so long when I was first exposed to him on podcasts. He was such an absurd contradictory person that it only made sense to me that it was a persona intended to make fun of self-hating gay conservatives. Of course over time there has been less and less evidence to suggest it's a persona.

for one, he's really racist and jives well with that element of the right

and the main thing i think is that he has so much naked ambition and greed coupled with basically no scruples and very little intelligence or talent. he wants to be really famous and make a lot of money and reactionaries are such an easy target even someone as dumb as him can make millions from grifting them.
