Tara McCarthy is an Internet-Talk-Show-Host who is currently taking Time off from youtubing. The Anti-Defamation-League considers her Part of the Alt Right. She has interviewed Jared Taylor, Nathan Damigo, Richard Spencer, Greg Johnson and Andrew Anglin. She has also jointly interviewed Stephen Yaxley-Lennon as well as Lauren Southern with Brittany Pettibone. Tara recounts her Beginnings in the Vlogosphere thusly: "I actually started a vegan YouTube-Channel, so, I'm vegan, and I just started to like tell everyone else to go vegan on this Channel, but then I started realising like more important Things were going in the World and so basically started talking about that Kind of Stuff and now it's like a Full-Time-Thing."
Bodybuilder and YouTuber Marcus Follin, a.k.a. The Golden One, says he knew Tara "since before the great Crusade", Autumn of 2015. Marcus says he didn't "redpill" her, rather "she took the red Pill herself". When he met her, Summer of 2015, he says "she was a Vegan with questionable Views". She has been a Vegan since around late 2014.
A Redditor, who claims to have known "her when she was younger", claimed on 6 November 2017 that she used to go by "Tarasita Hanrahan" and posted a Link to a Picture on Imgur, which the Redditor claims is her in 2010.

Personal Life and Background
When asked what part of Britain her Accent is from, she says: "My Accent is not representative of any particular Area of London or the UK, it's actually just my unique Hodgepodge of an Accent." Her Grandmother is of half indian Ancestry and her Grandmother's Mother was half jewish. She has both british and irish Citizenship, her Father is 100 Percent irish, her Mother half welsh and she has german Ancestry on one of her Great-Grandmothers' Sides. Tara is agnostic. She went to a School where Whites were the Minority.  She says:
My own Mother would not let me go to a better School -- that I had the Opportunity to go to through Scholarship -- because it was too white.
My Great-Grandad was an indian Guy, so, and he married a Woman who was like half Jew, half Christian, like she actually went to Synagogue and Church, Saturday, Sunday.
By Blood I have 2 Percent Ashkenazi-Genes, according to 23andMe.
On 10 March 2017, Tara said she was engaged.
What she has said about what
Like as someone who is marginally of mixed Race, obviously it's not necessarily in my best Interest to promote the Alt Right -- in my personal best Interest. Um, but you have to look at it from a bigger Perspective, like what's actually in your People's best Interest. So that's kind of my Approach.
I certainly wouldn't be protesting if someone decided to string up Angela Merkel, um, but that's, you know, that's just me ... I hate her, I do hate her, but, you know, technically it would be nice if we didn't hate Humans, but rather focused on the Ideas that are a Problem.
I don't think civic Nationalism ever works. I think Ethnonationalism is what we previously called Nationalism.
Do we really want to be a Globe full of Morons? Personally, I don't see that as a very good Future, but that's where we're going unless we start using voluntary eugenic Policy. I'm not saying: 'Let's go out and kill People', I'm not saying: 'Let's go out and forcibly sterilise People or force People to have an Abortion', [I'm] totally not saying that. I'm just saying that we can use Policy in a particular Way that, you know, encourages more intelligent People to have Children and discourages less intelligent People from having Children in a Way that is a Win-Win-Situation.
Refugees and Asylum-Seekers
On 14 January 2018, Tara tweeted:
That Guy T
This is a Conversation Tara had with Richard Spencer during the Episode of "This Week on the Alt Right" that was livestreamed on 15 December 2017:
Tara McCarthy: I've had a Number of black Men and Women contacting me and telling me that they totally get it. So ... I don't see anything wrong with kind of allying with these People. Someone actually did send in a Question, asking, um, you know: 'Is it worth, uh, specifically reaching out to ... People who do want to be, um, supportive of what we're doing here, People of Colour'. I know a Guy called That Guy T, I think?
Black people: We should be more convinced that it is time for us to separate and build a nation of our own.— MINISTER FARRAKHAN (@LouisFarrakhan) October 13, 2017
We in the Alt-Right are open for a real dialogue. https://t.co/y4U4EAen2O— Richard 🐉 Spencer (@RichardBSpencer) October 13, 2017
The Rebel Media
You know, Rebel Media is evidently Alt Light, fine. You want to be Alt Light? Fine, I don't care.
Answering the Question: "Are you a Zionist?", Tara has said:
You know, I'm not really sure exactly what Zionism means -- or what it means to you -- so all I can say is I'm against foreign Interventionism ... I'm pro Ethnonationalism for all People. So make what you will of it.
What others have said about her
I always thought you'd be use to these attacks by now. As you grow in popularity it's only going to get worse and if you can't cope with it then maybe it's time to part. But I'd like to see you stick around.— Peter Starzomczyk (@wokeafbigpete) 7. Dezember 2017
First Interview with Richard Spencer
On 28 March 2015, Tara interviewed Richard Spencer for the first Time, something her Viewers had been asking her to do "for quite a While". The Video later became unavailable on YouTube, but Tara uploaded a Copy of it onto archive.org.
Appears to consider leaving the Alt Right
As shown by a Screenshot of her Twitter on 4 December 2017, Tara appears to have considered leaving the Alt Right:
On 11 December 2017, Marcus Follin made a Video titled "The Reason I Defend Tara McCarthy" in Response to what he perceived as Attacks on his Friend Tara, saying: "I feel, to a certain Extent, responsible for ... her, that she wanted to join this Crusade".
Takes Time off from youtubing
