Your child, a far-right extremist? The early radicalization signs no one told you about The calm before the racist storm: reach out for help if you spot two or more of these lesser known warning signs.

Folks, we need to talk about your sons. The UK has seen a 74% increase in far-right referrals to the government’s anti-radicalization program, and similar numbers are seen in America and other western nations as well. The majority of the hate incidents are caused by boys and young men led astray and radicalized into the far right by toxic online rabbit holes.

The main problem is that, while our governments and NGOs are doing excellent work trying to stamp out hate, they simply don’t have the human resources and agility to educate about early onset far right radicalization. Adult folks simply aren’t hip to the esoterica of zoomer culture and that goes triply when dealing with shadowy darkwebs like 4chan.

Creepy internet racists who want the world to burn are always on the lookout for young boys to lure into their deep webs of hate. Luckily there are almost immediately tell-tale signs.

So let’s get to it. We’ve talked to a panel of antiracist zoomer influencers (they chose not to be identified in case of backlash) and compiled a list of lesser known signs of right-wing extremism that are alarmingly amiss from government and NGO materials. If you spot any combination of two or more of these warning signs, you need to seek help with the resources attached at the bottom and you need to seek it fast.

Using archives, archiving news articles

This “practice” started with the misogynist 2014 GamerGate harassment campaign to remove all women from gaming. Basically, misogynists, racists, and assorted undesirables all share the conspiratorial belief that you can’t trust journalists, and that you should deprive them of the article clicks they desperately need to put food on the table.

Take a look at your son’s bookmarks and be concerned if you see extremism-weaponized websites like “archive.is” or “wayback machine.” If it’s hard to get access, here’s a tip: ask him to send you a link to a news article and see if he wraps the article in a weird URL or domain name that has nothing to do with the newspaper — the tell-tale sign of archiving.

Please note that archiving websites aren’t far right in and of themselves, and do have several legitimate uses. The problematics revolve around their weaponization against journalists, who serve as the frontline guardians of our sacred democracy.

Preoccupation with physical fitness, nutrition, and exercise — and not the yoga kind

Fascists are obsessed with male physical aesthetics and athleticism, and we’re obviously not talking about yoga. If your child is going to gyms, that means he’s already consorting with the far right and absorbing ridiculous nazi poster-inspired ideals. It’s not a coincidence that the gym is the usual meeting place for the Proud Boys terror group: studies have shown that gym bros are right-wing assholes. Don’t believe me; believe the studies — that’s just science for ya.

Nutrition is another key diagnostic factor. While normal health conscious individuals will buy organic greens from the farmer’s market, these guys try to figure out how best to eat a deer raw to follow some imaginary stone age diet — or some other crazed decidedly non-vegan scheme. Shunning soy has also been shown to be a strong right-wing indicator, so look out for derisive use of terms for health adjacent groups like “soy boy” and “vegan.”

Exaggerated aversion to guilty pleasures

There is nothing wrong with staying away from drugs or alcohol or pornography, but if a young person considers abstinence an actual virtue — that is, something to be proud about and rub in others’ face like the misogynistic purity rings hawked by crazed evangelists — alarm bells should go off.

Wants to, or already works with, Artificial Intelligence

Google apologized and made amends, but the problem isn’t with Google; it’s with the technology itself.

Amazon recently had to scrap their AI recruiting tool because they discovered it showed bias against women. Google discovered that the only way to get its AI to not tag Black people in photos as gorillas is to wipe the concept of gorillas off the AI’s mind entirely. Microsoft’s “Tay” AI that interacted with people on Twitter turned into a full-blown nazi within days. An MIT study blares that AI is shockingly racist and sexist, and scholars are hard at work trying to figure out why that seems to happen every time.

Even now, at time of writing, a story just broke where Facebook asked users if they would like to “keep seeing videos about Primates” after they had watched a video of a Black man. (Facebook immediately disabled the AI feature.)

You don’t have to rub many braincells together to figure out why the far right would be slithering into bed with this wicked technology. In fact, an archive search of terrorist darkweb site 4chan reveals that posts praising AI as “based AI” (based here meaning cool/strong/alpha) number no less than 16,978 at the time of writing. Was the Roko’s basilisk thought experiment right — only with the asterisk that the computer god being willed into existence is Hitler 2.0?

It took a global movement launched by the horrific execution of George Floyd to get Walmart and CVS to put an end to its anti-shoplifting AI.

The computer science to AI racism pipeline can start with relatively innocent things like having a laptop or desktop computer, which can lead to programming, which often leads to AI. Please let your representative and/or faculty head know that more research is needed on this radicalization pipeline.

Exaggerated interest in history, country, culture, tradition, the constitution

Tradition isn’t bad per se, but far right nut jobs make an art form out of bringing the worst parts of the past into the modern age, while of course being completely oblivious to the fact that ancient tribes were socialist matriarchies. Unless your child wants to become a history professor, displaying an exaggerated interest in right-wing adjacent values is a strong indicator of already being well down the far-right rabbit hole.

Obsession with cryptocurrency

Yes, it could be that your child just happened to grow up a lot faster than his peers and wants to “get rich.” But while all cryptocurrency aficionados are not far right extremists, all far right extremists are cryptocurrency aficionados. Online undesirables nurture a shared grudge against trusted democratic institutions, and that goes double for the banking system that they mistakenly believe will end if people trade dogecoins instead of US dollars.

No wonder then that the cryptocurrency space is so toxic. We have reported extensively on this problem in the past.

Related: Are women and people of color being excluded from cryptocurrency?

Related: Everyone deserves a seat at the cryptocurrency table

Expressed dislike of “post-modernism,” “modern art,” “pegging,” and other far-right scarecrows that aren’t realsies

“Post-modernism” is a far-right conspiracy theory that says that anything that isn’t immediately beautiful or logical to their limited minds was created by secret communist agents to kill the “white” “race.” We kid you not. Doing a deep dive on each of these terms is beyond the scope of this article, but commit them to memory so you can stay on alert.

The wrong kind of love of nature

Nature is good, and we must protect it, but let’s not kid ourselves. Far right ideology has a view of nature that is radically different from our own. Whereas we fight climate change, far right ideologues have a bizarre, almost sexual fascination with nature walks and cis white females in wheat fields (what’s that about?).

The bookshelf is filling up with creepy material

Healthy children and teenagers are interested in video games and having fun, and can enjoy books as well (that’s great!). But if your child or teenager’s bookshelf is suddenly seeing an influx of “classical western” literature (or history, as mentioned in warning sign #5), then chances are it’s actually far right ideology downloaded from Pewdiepie.

Yes, that’s right; the silly Swedish youtuber. The video game loving funnyman has taken a dark turn and started doing weekly “book review” videos where he orders his underage troops to read right-wing adjacent books that usually shouldn’t be read outside of critical scholarly contexts. Pewdiepie’s favorite author is of course Yukio Mishima, an anti-marxist and imperialist fascist. Need I say more?

Related: The technologies that can end racism in our lifetime

A Pewdiepie-style haircut

Luscious on top, short on the sides — exactly as Richard Spencer ordered.

Oh boy. I know the criteria for diagnosis is “two or more of these warning signs,” but this ghastly haircut is to far right sickness as dying of cancer is to cancer. The moment you see your child’s top starting to look like the Swedish video man, abandon all hope. You ignored your child’s symptoms and the far right tumor ate its entire body.

This is no longer your child. It is now a golem serving the islamophobic, antisemitic, racist, transphobic, sexist machinations of creepy internet guys who can’t get laid and want the world to burn.

***

Being a parent is stressful and fraught with difficult decisions. If you in your best judgement and with the best information available to you have diagnosed your child or teenager with right-wing extremism, yesterday is the time to contact the proper authorities. The sooner you act, the more of a chance you have of salvaging the human in your child. If you do not act, your child may very well grow up to mow down innocent Charlottesville protestors for being women standing against fascism.

This is probably the most ridiculous piece of garbage I have ever read. It would have been a merciful act for the “writer” to take this deluded crap and burn the paper it was printed on. Then go to the computer it was written on and burn that too. This would be hilarious if the nutjob that wrote it didn’t believe every word that they said.

The “writer” didn’t even have balls to sign this bizarre garbage collection. Yeah, yeah those “anonymous sources” totally provided all those tips (unlike quite a lot of “letters to our editors”), but the author still had to do SOME sort of editing… right? Unless this had been a “dump all the content, upload, bye” thing.

And about “panel of antiracist zoomer influencers” – who on the everfucking clown world had actually have an idea that “influencer” could EVER provide anything worth listening to about… uh… anything?

Half of this bizarre list looks like a parody, because it manages to be even stupider, flamboyantly stupider, than the usual sermon on the topic. But the other half has such a direct retellings of the official fables (eg. GamerGate, a phenomemon with a harassment rate comparable to Covid mortality rate) that one might think people responsible for this tumor are actually serious.

For a person that thinks racism exist in the US and claims how bad and wrong it is even tho its a lie but yet you discriminate on a group of people and then claim its because they are white which is far more racist than anything you claim from the right.

“This is no longer your child. It is now a golem serving the islamophobic, antisemitic, racist, transphobic, sexist machinations of creepy internet guys who can’t get laid and want the world to burn.”

This statement just shows your ignorance, your hate and how discriminating and sexist you are. Do you really think all because a a male is a virgin its because he cant get laid? Why do you assume that? Is it because you’re sexist? Seems like you are. You do know males who are virgins tends to be the only ones left that believes in saving her virginity for the right woman or least many do. Also doesn’t mean all the angry men are virgins because that sounds sexist, discriminative to the people who suffer from mental depression that has zero to do with women but to do with their depression or other disability’s. Kinda ironic that people like you complain about racism but yet you discriminate aganst people who have social disorders, Autism down to religion and free choice to save yourself for the right person romantically but i guess you know nothing about romance.

Thanks for the link because ill be sure to report hate against religions and the disabled.

Reading this article I thought this was the onion or the Babalon Bee. This reads like someone who is “right-wing” pretending to be a thoughtless, obedient, stupid, leftists. Imagine my shock when I clicked on another article (thinking this was a comedy site) and I realized that these people actually are thoughtless, obedient, stupid, leftists. To the person (or persons) or wrote this article: thank you so much. I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time. Don’t worry, I’ve archived it and it will live on forever. The ironic thing is that for the rest of time the same people you’re denigrating will be the only people who read this in the future. I’m sure I’m not the only one who thought it was absolutely hilarious you’re equating taking care of yourself (both mind and body), reading classic literature, avoiding vices and degeneracy, and “loving the wrong kind of nature” (whatever the heck that is supposed to mean) to being an evil nazi. Seriously, I am laughing at you.

When i was young, I was liberal, as most people are when they’re young. Equality between women and men, pro choice & for marriage equality, the most logical of thoughts- why would i not want people to be happy? I believed in Legal immigration, international aid programs and i believed in the government, in our nation. I mourned the needless war dead and abhorred the holocaust and i truly believed we were all united if but for a few on top filled with greed. As time marched forward i began to see changes in society. The were slow and subtle at first and then accelerated. I was told i was evil because of my skin colour. I was told that men are an abomination, a rapist in waiting. I was told i was directly responsible for the sins of the past and that my history and those before me were the epitome of evil. I was even told i would be better off dead, that my voice did not matter. It was a new irredeemable original sin. What scared me more is that i alone amongst my peers noticed what was happening and when i spoke up, i was silenced. It was a very unsettling time. Slowly, inch by inch the mask began to slip. I began to see the world for how it truly is and it was terrifying. I learned the truth about propaganda, delved deeply into geopolitics not just modern, but ancient to see that while history does not repeat; it echoes. I learned the truth about slavery, about those who profited from it. I delved deeply into my nations history to find nothing but lies, deceit and mass control. I learned the truth about the origins of world war one, a war that officially began in the late 1800’s. Most disheartening of all, i learned the truth about Nazi Germany and while the likes of Rohm, Goebels, himmler and menegle were the epitome of evil i began to learn the truth about that particular leader, Hitler. When that lead on to the holocaust, my mind crumbled learning the truth about the so called six million, one of the biggest successful propaganda devices of all time, i could not take it. I learned of the war crimes of the allies which are still yet to be answered for with such shame. I learned of the wars of terror waged for profit, so many sons and yes even daughters lost-for NOTHING. “No more”, i said to myself. “There is no way, this just has to be right wing nazi bullshit by the sneeds and chuds of /pol/ and /b/ or the fat ugly stormfront larpers who could barely raise their hands for a roman salute due to fat. No, this cannot be true. What if all the anti Semitic content online is just jealousy, racist hatred by those who similarly hate blacks also for reasons of jealousy. I took a step back. Not just from what i was… Read more »

As the father of a son who almost fell into the 4chan hole, I have some more tips to add to your resource (I love you for this!!!).

* A game called __Crusader Kings 2__. It was made by people associated with the mentioned fascist swedish youtuber and guess what, it’s about launching crusaders upon PoC countries and colonizing them in various time eras. They even have a mode where you can be a viking and just outright kill them all.

Kids often use the code word “CK” or “CK2” to refer to the game, so be on the lookout for that as well. And I agree with the person who said the comments are pretty much gone at this point. I will email you any additional tips I can think of – would love to be of any help I can. Again, thank you!!!
