Anti-abortion advocate and feminist Kristen Walker Hatten has pulled a complete 180 since the election of Donald Trump. Former vice president of New Wave Feminists and contributor to Dallas Morning News, Hatten formerly spoke at events nationwide explaining that feminism should seek out more women who oppose abortion rights. Hatten also wrote for Live Action News, the site that released the Planned Parenthood "sting" videos in early 2017.
Now her former comrades are trying to distance themselves after she has "come out" as a civic nationalist concerned with the prospect of white genocide.
“I admit to being racist by today’s standards, but I also think almost everyone is racist by today’s standards,” she wrote. “Is it racist to live in a majority white neighborhood? Send your kids to majority white schools? When I was a kid ‘racism’ meant hatred for another race and/or acting on that hatred. Now you’re a racist if you touch a black person’s hair because you think it’s pretty.”
Hatten and the New Wave Feminists were denied a chance to gather at the Women's March. Hatten claims to have had to take an internet break after dealing with so much news about Trump who she found to be a "repugnant chauvinist." Since she began posting about immigrant "invaders" replacing white Europeans and asking the president to grant asylum to white South Africans she has been branded "Alt-Right."
Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa, founder and president of New Wave Feminists and formerly close friends with Hatten was utterly bemused by the turnaround:
“She basically pulled a complete 180 from anything we had ever seen."
Hatten herself denied being a white supremacist or even a white nationalist but expressed her concerns with demographic displacement:
“I do see that Europe and the US are becoming… well, not European,” she wrote. “This concerns me not because I hate anyone, but for the same reason Japan would be concerned if the Japanese were becoming a minority in Japan. No people should be excited to become a minority in their homeland. It is contrary to human nature. I wouldn’t expect it of any race and I don’t think it should be expected of whites.”
