|Johnson is a big fan of the gay |

The latest revelation from the TRS dox-gate scandal is that Greg Johnson appears to be making a move to take over TRS and the Alt-Right. This is in response to the partial collapse of TRS and the downfall of its main intellectual leader, Mike Enoch, and also the rise of the Spencer bloc, which has grown much stronger in recent days with the launch of AltRight.com.
It is well-known in Alt-Right circles that Johnson, a brilliant writer and intellectual who is also gay, loathes Richard Spencer, the founder and handsome "poster boy" of our glorious movement. So, the launching of AltRight.com, which aligns Spencer with leading Alt-Right book publisher Arktos Publishing and leading Alt-Right media company Red Ice Radio, has definitely put Johnson's intellectually powerful but old-fashioned website in the shade.
However, the recent partial collapse of TRS and the downfall of its intellectual giant Mike Enoch, has given Johnson a chance to match Spencer's recent gains with his own.
Enoch, of course, was recently revealed to have a Jewish wife and is thought by many to be Jewish himself. In whatever way the "good goys" at TRS manage to patch it up, the Enoch doxxing has had a major impact, and it will be impossible for Enoch to resume the same moral and intellectual authority in TRS that he once had, something that he has himself admitted.
The other "leading light" of TRS, Seventh Son, is quite a different type and cannot be considered an "intellectual" leader. His talents lie elsewhere as a DJ, musician, parodiest, propagandist, and bro-chad.
This means that there is now an intellectual vacuum at the top of TRS. Johnson has been courting TRS for some time, and is thought to be a member of the secret Facebook group that forms the group's inner core. This crisis now gives him the opportunity to push his case for "intellectual overlordship" of the group. This is why he has been virulently defending Mike Enoch, as with his recent article "Why I Support Mike Enoch,"in which he said:
"Now, you might argue that Mike Enoch is being inauthentic or hypocritical by being married to a partly Jewish woman while taking a very hard line on the Jewish question, but frankly I applaud the fact that he thinks that truth is more important than authenticity"
He even went so far as to break ties with Alternative Right Chief Editor Colin Liddell over a rather innocuous comment Liddell made about the article, which can still be read in the comment thread.
Johnson knows that his White Knighting of Enoch won't restore Enoch's position to what it was before so he is merely doing this in order to gain credit with the TRS inner circle in order to push for hegemony over TRS, possibly to further his ongoing feud with Spencer.
