The current year is dead. Long live the current year.
2016 was the year the Alt-Right went big league. We became a household name to anyone following the election closely, spread our memes further than ever before, and witnessed the ascent of Donald J. Trump as the next president of the United States. We memed a shitlord billionaire into the White House and triggered millions of people worldwide. There was a dizzying amount of media coverage and habbenings in 2016, almost to the point where it became exhausting to stay involved. You're going to get tired of winning, folks.
First though, some general trends over 2016:
- In a display of impressive ineptitude, Hillary Clinton fails to move past her deleted emails scandal over the course of nine months.
- The world sees a marked increase in integrity among video game journalists.
- The plague of frogs crashes upon the shores of the Potomac.
- Sam Hyde is reportedly sighted at a number of violent crime scenes.
- Semi-cucked commentators including Paul Joseph Watson and Steven Crowder label themselves "Alt-Right" but then drop the label as our brand recognition grows stronger.
- Twitter bans a lot of people.
- National Review Online discontinues Disqus comments in an attempt to stop Alt-Right raids on their site. Sad!
- Thanks to the media’s mass coverage of the Alt-Right, The Right Stuff gets a permanent Wikipedia page with dozens of citations. Ditto the Alt-Right itself and the Triple Parentheses. We’re officially over the notability threshold now.
- The Democratic Party succumbs to racism and xenophobia as it blames "the Russians" for costing them the election.
- Many pool parties are held.
The Current Year Revisted:
Jan6 - Jeb Bush explains to a young New Hampshire resident that he keeps plastic turtles in his pockets.
"I give them out to kids. Slow, steady progress -- that's what that means," he told reporters, as he pulled out more turtles from his pocket. "I have a bunch of turtles. I got the little baby Jesus, I got my rosary beads and I got three turtles." (CNN)
Jan19 - Cuckservative "strategist" Rick Wilson denounces the Alt-Right as "childless single men who masturbate to anime." But we president now.
Feb13- Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passes away. The left expresses glee at the death of a conservative judge; Trump vows to appoint judges "in the mold of Scalia,"
if when elected.
Mar5 - Lawrence Murray's "seven pillars" of the Alt-Right article is published. No, I don’t regret including "autism" and a reference to Lothrop Stoddard in the title.
Mar23 - Microsoft launches their @TayAI chatbot on Twitter. Her tagline was, “Microsoft’s AI fam from the internet that’s got zero chill.” Tay was designed to learn, with Microsoft claiming, “the more you chat with Tay the smarter she gets, so the experience can be more personalized for you.”
Mar24 - TayAI is shoahed by Microsoft for becoming a /pol/ack.
Mar24 - National socialist in exile weev sends a bunch of friendly fliers to university printers and fax machines. Hilarity ensues.
April - The Houston Goylers have their karaoke hall putsch.
May26 - The Daily Beast's Olivia Nuzzi publishes "How Pepe the Frog Became a Nazi Trump Supporter and Alt-Right Symbol," taking everything @JaredTSwift and @PaulTown_ told her at face value:
“In a sense, we’ve managed to push white nationalism into a very mainstream position,” he said. “Trump’s online support has been crucial to his success, I believe, and the fact is that his biggest and most devoted online supporters are white nationalists. Now, we’ve pushed the Overton window. People have adopted our rhetoric, sometimes without even realizing it. We’re setting up for a massive cultural shift.”
June1 - The Coincidence Detector is taken down from Google Chrome's addon library after clickbait site Policy Mic draws attention to it. The addon, which was made by a TRS goy, placed triple parenthesis brackets around Jewish names found on websites. Mic ran several articles on it where they quoted our troll response to their emails, in which one of our goys described how each set of brackets represented a different layer of semitic subversion. As a result, the (((ADL))) added our punctuation to their hate symbol database. Also, Jews and other leftists began to bracket their names on social media as a sign of solidarity against nazis or something. So now if you go on Twitter, you’ve got all these Jewish and philosemitic accounts now marking themselves with parentheses, as a way of doing what they think is “taking back” the symbol from evil internet trolls. We’ve gotten them to wear yellow stars and they think they’ve won. You know who had the parentheses on his account before he took the whole thing down? Disgraced New York congressman and degenerate pervert Anthony Weiner. What a fine representative of what we’re trying to highlight. And he did it for us.
June10 - Lawrence Murray is quoted in the New York Times on how the Alt-Right is "winning the meme war."
June12 - The Orlando nightclub shooting claims the lives of 100, 120 guys. Two or three troll a Brazilian newspaper in the morning:
Thanks to 504rum user Featherman for translating the huehue-speak:
"I was on the dance floor, with 100 or 120 guys, when we heard gunshots. My reaction was to shout 'Oh my god! It's happening!' I threw myself on the floor and crawled to the backdoor. I didn't see the shooter", told John Eden to the Correio, 26 years old. "I saw two or three guys wounded in the corner, and tried to crawl outside the fastest I could. I heard around 14 gunshots. It was a very loud noise and my adrenaline was pumping", added the Orlando resident, who suffered a lesion on the shoulder.
A cook in a restaurant of the Applebee's network, Marlon Lincoln Patterson, 26, had just left the nightclub momentarily when he hard a "loud clack". "I couldn't see the shooter because he was far away. But I heard someone shout many times 'Only one solution here to be honest'. I saw people running toward the exit,” he told our reporter.
- John Eden 26 years old, accountant
"There were many gunshots. It was a really loud noise, louder than the music. I remember only wanting to get out of there. When I arrived home, first thing I did was call my rabbi. Now I know how my grandparents felt. They survived the war, the Holocaust and the nazis. It's terrible.”
- Marlon Lincoln Patterson 26 years old, cook
"I went to the nightclub by my own initiative, I wasn't familiar with the place. I was outside, hugging someone, when the assassin entered. Everything seemed to be going well, until I heard a loud snap. People seemed very confused at first moment, and things got heavy quickly."
June15 - Intersectional Alt-Right starts podcasting as Alt-Right Fights and grows to be the number one TRS show on the sound clouds after Fash the Nation and The Daily Shoah (again) were shoahed.
June18 - Chad nationalism is born in Arizona when a Trump supporter demands a Trump protestor make him a burrito.
June19 - A britcuck attempts to assassinate Donald Trump in Chicago.
July7 - The 2016 Ramadan Bombathon comes to a close with hundreds of deaths.

July14 - An angry North African man goes for the high score in France... using a cargo truck. 86 are killed and 434 injured. The French prime minister tells his country they must "live with terrorism."
July18 - A Trump supporter wears a "Cuck Hunt" t-shirt while open-carrying at the RNC.
July19 - Richard Spencer shows up in Cleveland for the RNC with a cheeky sign and talks to reporters:
As he told one of his incredulous interlocutors in the Public Square, he believes that race “is the foundation of culture, society, politics, and identity.” He dreams of a white ethno-state, which will allow white people “to unlock our potential. And that is the exploration of the universe. That is the unlocking of our Faustian will.”
July20 - Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon describes his site as "the platform for the Alt-Right."He is now White House chief strategist for President Trump.
July21 - Alex Jones trolls 'The Young Turks' into apoplectic rage on camera.
July21 - Trump accepts the nomination of the Republican party and gives a speech portraying himself as the redeemer.
July25 - Wikileaks goy Julian Assange tweets about "establishment climbers" with thick rimmed glasses and parentheses around their names. He quickly realizes what he's done and delets this:
“Tribalist symbol for establishment climbers?” said a Wikileaks tweet on Saturday. “Most of our critics have 3 (((brackets around their names))) & have black-rimmed glasses. Bizarre.”
July26 - The Battle of Sacramento takes place between antifa and skinhead groups affiliated with the Traditionalist Workers Party.
July28 - Clinton accepts the nomination of the Democratic party ,which she had been yugely favored to win all along, and gives a cucked speech that amounts to putting lipstick on the Weimerican pig:
We have the most dynamic and diverse people in the world. We have the most tolerant and generous young people we’ve ever had. We have the most powerful military. The most innovative entrepreneurs. The most enduring values. Freedom and equality, justice and opportunity. We should be so proud that these words are associated with us. I have to tell you, as your Secretary of State, I went to 112 countries, and when people hear those words – they hear America.
Aug5 - First episode of Million Dollar Extreme's World Peace airs.
Aug14 - "Esoteric Kekism, or Kek as a Bodhisattva of Racial Enlightenment" is published. The mimesis of Savitri Devi's The Lightning and the Sun proves to be the year's most read article on Atlantic Centurion.
Aug22 - Shitlib clickbait website Gawker is shoahed due to bankruptcy wrought by wrestler Hulk Hogan's lawsuit, which was bankrolled by Silicon Valley billionaire and anti-hero Peter Thiel.
Aug23 - A reporter from The Guardian quotes TRS's Mike Enoch without spin and portrays the Alt-Right as a movement with "a sense that White identity is under attack." Probably one of the best mainstream media pieces on the Alt-Right.
Aug24 - A screenshot of TRS is shown on CNN, with a tharrupost on the homepage.
Aug25 - Clinton dedicates an entire campaign speech to denouncing the Alt-Right. Alas we are lumped with a certain water filter salesman. During the speech, an audience member shouts "Pepe!" and is promptly removed. Clinton also used the phrase "White genocide." I don’t know about you, but I was never expecting the Democratic party to be the one to pick up on the Alt-Right. Or their nominee to dedicate a half hour speech to hand-wringing about us.
Sept1 - Donald Trump gives an excellent immigration policy speech in Arizona.
We’ve admitted 59 million immigrants to the United States between 1965 and 2015. Many of these arrivals have greatly enriched our country. So true. But we now have an obligation to them and to their children to control future immigration as we are following, if you think, previous immigration waves.
We’ve had some big waves. And tremendously positive things have happened. Incredible things have happened. To ensure assimilation we want to ensure that it works. Assimilation, an important word. Integration and upward mobility.
Within just a few years immigration as a share of national population is set to break all historical records. The time has come for a new immigration commission to develop a new set of reforms to our legal immigration system in order to achieve the following goals.
To keep immigration levels measured by population share within historical norms. To select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in U.S. society and their ability to be financially self- sufficient.
We take anybody. Come on in, anybody. Just come on in. Not anymore.
Sept5 - Claremont publishes the Flight 93 election article, a widely read "conservative" case of sorts for voting Trump that went above and beyond ordinary punditry.
Sept9 - Hillary Clinton gives the "basket of deplorables" speech to a bunch of wealthy Manhattanite donors. Chattering classes agree that everyone they don't like is an evil racist sexist. Normie conservatives are outraged at her denouncing a fourth of the country as irredeemable un-American bigots. The Alt-Right can barely conceal their shit-eating grins.
Sept11 - Meme fuel melts muscle beams. Hillary Clinton has to leave a memorial service at Ground Zero because of “heat exhaustion,” and is caught on video collapsing into her footprint.
Sept14 - Hillary Clinton's campaign website puts up an explainer about how "sinister" Pepe the Frog is.
Sept17 - Three bombs go off and several explosives are found in New York and New Jersey, planted by an Afghan refugee.
Sept27 - Pepe the Frog is labeled a "hate symbol" by the (((ADL))), placing him in the company of the swastika, runes, and the numbers 14 and 88. Yeah, a cartoon frog. Can you imagine leftists sitting around trying to explain to one another or to normies that frogs are symbols of so-called White supremacy and neo-nazism? Isn’t that just the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard?
Sept30 - (((Elie Wiesel))), Holocaust evangelist and author, dies. The French and Hebrew editions of the book read by millions of American highschoolers, Night, omits passages where escaped camp inmates rape female German civilians.
Sept30 - CNN makes their own Pepe.
Oct6 - After "racist" flyers appear on the University of Michigan's campus, the administration blows $85 million on a diversity initiative. Affirmative action is currently banned in public universities in the state.

Oct25 - Abki baar Trump sarkar
Oct26 - Alex Jones finally acknowledges a Jewish mafia exists.
Neo-Nazi leader Andrew Anglin plans to muster thousands of poll watchers across all 50 states. His partners at the alt-right website “the Right Stuff” are touting plans to set up hidden cameras at polling places in Philadelphia and hand out liquor and marijuana in the city’s “ghetto” on Election Day to induce residents to stay home.
A "representative" of TRS was quoted:
“We also have some teams going in to the ghettos in Philly with 40s and weed to give out to the local residents, which we think will lead to more of them staying home. We have had success with this in the past,” wrote the representative of TheRightStuff.biz, who said four teams of two employed this tactic in Detroit during the Democratic primary in an effort to help Bernie Sanders. “40s” are 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor. POLITICO could not independently verify his claims.
Nov8 - Donald J. Trump is elected President of the United States.
See also, Encyclopedia Dramatica's take:

Nov19 - Salutegate: A cheer of "Hail Trump, Hail our people, Hail Victory" and a friendly wave at the NPI conference spark a minor flurry of counter-signaling, only to lead to more press coverage and no harm done at all.
Nov21 - The sister of Facebook co-founder and CEO (((Mark Zuckerberg))) writes an article expressing concern that the Alt-Right likes classical civilization. In her view, interpreting Greece and Rome as the foundations of Western civilization is "a slippery slope to White supremacy," and students of the classics should be discouraged from thinking in those terms. I wonder why an overseas Israeli is so interested in deconstructing White history and identity...
Nov25 - Communist dictator Fidel Castro dies.
Dec3 - "Anomie, Anime, and the Alt-Right" is published, combing weapons-grade autism with cutting social commentary. Commended by the neo-reactionary movement as article of the week. Your author has also heard a reading of it done by a friend's mother.

- Sell the building and make "a donation to human rights efforts" (after threatening to organize protests outside the property, which would lower its value)
Dec19 - Trump wins the formal electoral college vote by a margin of 77 with 304 votes in total (3+4=7), due to 7 faithless electors. He will also be 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old on his first full day in office:
Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946. If you move ahead 70 years from that date, that brings you to June 14, 2016. Moving forward another seven months brings you to Jan. 14, 2017, and moving forward another seven days brings you to Jan. 21, 2017.
Dec23 - Upstate NY Republican Carl Paladino makes these off-color comments about people of color in an interview about what he would like to see in 2017:
- "Obama catches mad cow disease after being caught having relations with a Herford. He dies before his trial and is buried in a cow pasture next to Valerie Jarret, who died weeks prior, after being convicted of sedition and treason, when a Jihady cell mate mistook her for being a nice person and decapitated her."
- "Michelle Obama. I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortably in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla."
He knows about Michael Obama? I guess Paladino listens to Knock Off.
Dec25 - People are saying Merry Christmas again.
Dec31 - The age of cucks is over, the time of the shitlord has come. We now enter the Kali Yuge.
