Like so many white men of Übermensch-a, the American Renaissance Conference likes to dream the impossible dream — of a pure white race unsullied by such notions as racial equality and democracy. AmRen was the subject of a Scene cover story in 2012, and comes across in this latest installment in the Nashville Docujournal series just as smug and hateful as you might imagine.
What kind of person would quote MLK sarcastically at the end of a speech in which proposing the establishment of a "white ethno-state on the North American continent" is an applause line? Well, the same kind who would say "we must give up the false dream of equalizing all races" so that white people can explore space while "fostering ... white people who are healthier, stronger and more beautiful, to the point that they can rival the ancients." But hey you liberals, don't misunderstand these people. They're just "race realists," after all.
