    On ipad, hold down the vowel key, and lots of different options will pop up. Then just glide up to the one you want.

    Graves look to be all numlock codes unfortunately.
    On a Mac, you can press option+tilde and then your vowel.

    Alt + 0192 = À
    Alt + 0200 = È
    Alt + 0204 = Ì
    Alt + 0210 = Ò
    Alt + 0217 = Ù
    Alt + 0224 = à
    Alt + 0232 = è
    Alt + 0236 = ì
    Alt + 0242 = ò
    Alt + 0249 = ù

    Probably easier on an AZERTY keyboard though.

    Same. Thanks to certain people, White has become a pejorative term especially "White Men". We don't need it here even when MW says it it sounds forced. The whole "White" thing falls to pieces here with the North, history with Britain etc. Even with all our nutty feminists here it's not used much, it is easily refuted.

    We weren't "White" when there was something to be gained from it. Now it only brings negatives and suddenly we're "White"

    We can never win can we lol

    It is amazing how similar Scotch Gaelic is to Irish.

    You have honed in on important point though; unless Nationalism is about something positive as opposed to being merely against stuff it goes into dangerous territory. You aren't near that territory but Millienial Woes is.

    Yes, I can't make out any program he has for a better future. It looks like he'd be happy enough if he was allowed to make his videos and give his speeches without being threatened and intimidated. Is he really not asking the Liberals to just - be Liberal?

    I travelled in Alt Right circles online and the forums for most of this year and was in America for while. That is their problem, too many hugely different groups banded together with widely different agendas. They know what they are against but not what they are for.

    It's surprised me how many Irish, Irish Americans, Catholics , women etc are involved/support them. But people like Richard Spencer aren't going to get them anywhere.

    Im at the moment working with a guy from Naples and I would estimate his "Whiteness" as 100 per cent. My estimate of the "Whiteness" of the Greek Cypriot also working in this office would also be 100 per cent.

    I'm not really surprised by so many Irish supporting them. This is one of the great ill effects of us speaking English - we get caught up in every fad going in the Anglosphere. And there is the fact that any Irish person who looks around them and sees their country being devastated has nowhere to turn to. The Left has totally betrayed the Irish people. Sinn Féin have turned Clintonite. The main stream parties are driving the destruction of Ireland as quickly as they can. So it's not surprising that something like the Alt-Right seems to be giving them the answers they desperately need. If nothing else, it's a sort of virtual protest against a very evil and rotten reality.

    This is just my opinion on it,. America is a a mix and match mess. We are an island nation with a people who have been living here 10,000 odd years. That is your group.

    If you lose your borders, you lose your country, you lose your collective. You can be white all you want in any country you wish, its not going to be worth a fuck to you if that place is a multicult hell hole. Your only playing their game if you choose white. White is borderless. Ireland has a border. The irish have a nation. European is not borderless, there is a europe, and so we can call ourselves european if ye like, but make sure you call yourselves irish first.

    There's only one place in the world where the Europeans are the Natives. It really makes me sick when I see so called anti-imperialists supporting native peoples all over the world - except in Europe. Well, if you don't support the anti-imperialist struggle of the Native Europeans - then you can't call yourself an anti-imperialist.

    Yep. There seemed to be 10-20 Irish on one of their forums called "The Right Stuff". I believe an Irish guy even does a podcast called Europa Weekly. I never listened, there is loads of these Alt Right style podcasts, some are okay. Then on the extreme end of things I recall browsing Daily Stormer once and before it was taken down they seemed to have a book club group with activity here. Seemed to be several Irish Alt Right type twitter accounts. There are Irish on 4chan too.

    It would be nice if we could harness that energy to the benefit of our country. But I understand why they may avoid politics here, I'm sure they all know about the NP some are probably in it others may vote for them. But they are not looking like any sort of threat for the next election. I recall Barrett saying it may take 20 years . It will be too late by then.

    In 20 years, the Irish will be the old, the sick and the dying. We have very little time.
