For decades, leftist educational-legal advocacy groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, American Civil Liberties Union, Anti-Defamation League, and National Lawyers Guild have aggressively furthered their missions in the courts of public opinion and law without serious opposition. Except for Liberty Lobby—which had its heyday in the 1980s—, no patriotic organization has advocated the interests of our people in a similar manner.
But it’s the current year, and now the Alt-Right has the Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas, Inc., to serve as the patriotic alternative to organizations which demand the imposition upon our people of the orthodoxy of political correctness at the cost of our dignity, fundamental rights, and heritage.
Founded on March 23, 2016, the mission of the Michigan-based FMI is to educate the public about the freedoms guaranteed by the United States Constitution and people who and organizations which strive to usurp said freedoms.
FMI will advance the cause of freedom by educating the public of current events of concern by way of its website, hosting member-only and public events, and advancing its mission by participating in the courts of public opinion and law.
Since being founded only six months ago, FMI has already:
- Organized a private function on October 15, 2016, at which James Edwards of The Political Cesspool will speak about the Alt-Right phenomenon to an expected seventy people who will be in attendance.
- Co-sponsored with the National Policy Institute and Identity Evropa an amazing weekend-long conference in July of 2016. Over sixty attendees toured the ruins of Detroit, met during one evening for informative speeches at a scenic location—with an open bar and catered hors d'oeuvres—, explored the Detroit Institute of Arts, met for brunch in a swank suburb bistro, and enjoyed a dinner at a private room of a traditional Polish restaurant in a Polish enclave of Southeast Michigan.
- Published an educational article on its website entitled, “What Alt-Right Activists Can Do When Doxed By The Politically Correct Left.” Wildly popular, it was picked up by VDare and American Renaissance and links were tweeted to it by Richard Spencer, James Edwards, and Kevin MacDonald.
- Published newsworthy and educational materials on its website, which often include primary source materials procured via public record requests with governmental actors.
FMI is the brainchild of Attorney Kyle Bristow, who the SPLC describes as “one of the Alt-Right’s most vicious attack dogs” and who’s legal and political accomplishments—which the SPLC abhors—amount to “a remarkable trajectory” for the “fairly major figure on the American radical right.” Only a licensed lawyer since 2012, Bristow has quickly earned a reputation as an aggressive and brilliant litigator: he is rated as a 10.0/10.0 “superb” attorney on Avvo.com—the highest rating of that website—; he has been rated by Super Lawyers as a 2016 Michigan “Rising Star”—and no more than 2.5% of attorneys earn that peer-reviewed award in any year—; he was named a 2017 “Top Lawyer” by DBusiness magazine; and he pioneered an area of law which has resulted in him being interviewed by major media outlets. The SPLC has conceded on its website that “Bristow doesn’t seem destined to the dustbin.”
Lawyers sympathetic with Alt-Right philosophy have begun to network with Bristow and FMI; already, attorneys who are licensed to practice law in sixteen states are accepting referrals from FMI to assist with legal activism against social justice warriors.
In the very near future, FMI hopes to file amicus curiae briefs with federal and state courts to promote Alt-Right philosophy and to defend the Western legal tradition—including the fundamental rights which it recognizes—, and to become a legal juggernaut against the enemies of our people.
Bristow has experience with filing successful amicus curiae briefs with courts. In fact, Bristow arguably provided invaluable input to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit when it ruled that Michigan’s ban on homosexual marriage is constitutional. Also, Bristow was credited with successfully engaging in “lawfare” when an amicus curie brief filed by him assisted with procuring a major victory for Second Amendment rights.
FMI’s dream to become a nightmare for the Left can only happen, however, with financial support from donors. FMI has been granted 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service since it is an educational-civil rights advocacy organization, and so donations to it are tax-deductible.
As a fledging organization, donations will go a long way to realizing its true potential, and if sufficient capital is procured, then it will become self-sustaining.
To donate, please mail a check or money order made out to “Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas, Inc.” to:

Please be sure to include your name and mailing address with your donation so that a tax-deductible donation receipt can be mailed back.
As the SPLC recently quoted on their website Attorney Kyle Bristow having said at FMI’s July 2016 Detroit conference, “We are not doing this to make money or to advance our careers. We are doing it because we truly believe that we are right and that what we are doing is in the interest of our people, and that we have a moral obligation to seek the realization of our people’s destiny.”
And our people’s destiny will be realized.
