So here is a topic dedicated to Brittany Pettibone, an American political activist and a writer (science fiction, young adults).
Her links :
Youtube // Political Website // Twitter // Facebook // Instagram // Author Website
So first of all let's begin with her ideology. She is a Christian, a right-wing conservative, a self-described constitutionalist, it is safe to say she is a civic nationalist, but some assume she is an ethno-nationalist (white nationalism), but it is unclear. She began her political activity in 2016 on Youtube and became quite famous in the alt-light scene because she made videos with Lauren Southern (I dedicated a thread about her in this Forum). She is among the group of political activists who pander to an audience they do not necessarily match (Lauren Southern learnt that the hard way). What I imply is that many assumed she was full blown alt right : anti-Semitic (although she supports Israel), racist (no evidence of that), white-nationalist (she is a civic nationalist considering her Youtube videos). Many people are frustrated because they'd like her to be even more extreme. She is already fairly conservative : very religious, against sex before marriage, against abortion, against contraceptive, against promiscuity... She is in favor of the return of "traditional life and values." But on the contrary to Lauren Southern, she seems more genuine about it and her lifestyle seems to match. (Sorry to compare her with Lauren all the time but I think there is a huge contrast between them although everyone always associate them.)
Why make a thread dedicated to her?
Although I am a liberal (I mention this because I don't want to be personally associated to the alt-light or to the alt-right), she seems very intelligent and has potential unlike many of her fellow political activists. She is pretty humble and there is a very interesting paradox between her political belief and her personality. She is smart, educated, knowledgeable, but she makes videos with people who explain that women destroy the Western civilization because they are "too emotional" and "unable to be rational." (It's Black Pigeon Speaks, he is against the right for women to vote).
Here is her video with him:
She gives more details about her personal life in this Q&A video with her twin sister:
In this video, she explains how she has been raised: By very traditional parents. This is the very interesting thing about her: she was born into this ideology, and she has never been red-pilled (unlike many in the movement). But as an ambitious and rational woman, isn't she frustrated? She is curious and has no problem with interviewing anyone, she made many interviews with Tara McCarthy in a series called Virtue of the West, many are worth watching. She traveled a lot in Europe recently and is now in a relationship with Martin Sellner an Austrian activist from Generation Identity. He was part of the mission Defend Europe and she filmed it with Lauren Southern (yes, her again).
Otherwise she enjoys reading and writing, and I am pretty sure she mentioned the fact that she likes playing video games. She is also an introvert. No scandals right now.
Concerning her author career, this is very interesting. Many people in the alt-light have written books about politics (that are not worth it for the most part, you can see my review of Lauren Southern book in her dedicated thread). But her book was not about politics at all, it is a dystopic fiction called Hatred Days and the reviews of her book (co-written with her twin sister) are excellent. I am absolutely serious. I have never seen such good comments about a book written by a youtuber.
I will definitely read it, and make a complete review on this thread. Probably in January.
Have you already heard of her? What do you think?
Thanks for reading!
