[From "FLASHBACK: Joe Biden Slams Apartheid In 1986"]

Joe Biden recently lashed out against “21st century Jim Crow”[…]He seemed to suggest that would be a bad thing
[…]
Joe Biden and progressive activists led the charge against apartheid in South Africa. “Democracy” required South Africans to submit to the ANC and follow in the footsteps of Zimbabwe and the rest of sub-Saharan Africa[…]It was “racism” and “white supremacy” to doubt that it would all work out because blacks have been oppressed by systematic racism and actually have the same capacity for self government as everyone else

Joe Biden and his ilk got their way in Zimbabwe and South Africa[…]Pretty much all of the things that are now happening in this country today under Joe Biden were pioneered in post-colonial sub-Saharan Africa. We have vicious racial attacks on Whites. We have the same cynical exploitation of White guilt[…]We have the same Africanizing of the country and erosion in First World standards. We have “equity” now like in Zimbabwe and South Africa where the evil White man’s civilization has been in precipitous decline
[…]
South Africa and Zimbabwe show that “equality” doesn’t necessarily mean going up together[…]It usually means going down to the lowest common denominator[…]Dragging life for everyone who ISN’T black down to their level and staying there. Joe Biden got rid of that morally repulsive regime in South Africa and obliterated the evil civilization that had been created there

Are we going to allow him to repeat that experiment in this country?

I can also remember the exact moment when systematic racism became the next novelty and took off like a rocket with progressive activists. It was after George Floyd died last summer. From that point on, “racism” became systematic and “equity” became fashionable and “equality” fell out of fashion

[From "Final Thoughts"]

I’m not voting in the 2020 election.

I’ve always been an independent moderate and populist nationalist voter. I have never been a conservative or a Republican[…]
When Donald Trump came on the scene in 2015, I supported him because I hated mainstream conservatism – the True Cons or the cuckservatives who I ridiculed at the time – and because his campaign seemed to be opening the door to a new kind of populist and nationalist politics.[…]
My politics have always been moderate, populist and nationalist.[…]Basically, I’m a throwback to an extinct species of New Deal-era Southern Democrat.
[…]
The issues we are facing today are also different because of Trump. We lost hundreds of our historic monuments which were torn down by violent mobs.[…]Democratic cities were allowed to essentially become a 21st century version of sundown towns while the Trump Justice Department prosecuted White Nationalists.[…]Meanwhile, he delivered a trophy case of victories for Israel and militant Zionists who hit the jackpot with his administration.

Over the last four years, we have seen a reversion to mainstream conservatism except now the difference is that it is openly gay and more stupid, feckless and ineffective than ever before. There is less room, not more, in the GOP for nationalists like Steve King who was drummed out of the party for wondering why Western civilization has become taboo.[…]What are these people doing for me as a social conservative voter? After replacing Anthony Scalia, Neil Gorsuch read transgenderism into the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
[…]
In this respect, I have learned something from the Losters who I have been researching in recent months. They were also completely alienated from American politics and culture, but it gave them the perspective to articulate a new set of values, which is what I plan on doing with my time.

Second, leftists neglect the most important unchosen force that shapes us. It’s not society, religion, or economics.

Furthermore, whatever white advocates, conservatives, nationalists, or Trump supporters may think, we aren’t in power.[…]The system in power, and those who control it, are objectively opposed to whites.

We can exploit the egalitarians’ flaws against them. They deny tradition, nature, and the reality of the system.

The point is not to save Republicans, but to have smaller, whiter, conservative areas where white advocates could get a fair hearing and public support.[…]If the GOP refuses to defend white interests, regional parties, third parties, or even independent candidates could force them to or face certain defeat.

The difficult part will be openly defending race realism.[…]White Americans will not someday “wake up” and fight off egalitarian radicalism. There will be no movement unless we organize it.

[From "Your Favorite President Lost White Guys"]

2020 is on us.

Let this fact sink in.

Donald Trump lost the 2020 election because he couldn’t motivate enough White men to vote for him. He improved with literally every other group in the country EXCEPT for White men.

After six months of nationwide chaos, White men drifted away from Donald Trump. Donald Trump had a problem with the White vote. It takes a special kind of genius to lose his margin with White men while the Left was beating the drum of anti-White hatred at a fever pitch. Evidently, White men decided that four more years of having Donald Trump as president wasn’t worth what it had cost them. Couldn’t he have said something about what was going on instead of rolling out the Platinum Plan?

The media’s narrative about “white supremacy” and “systemic racism” couldn’t have been more false. It was the populists and the “white supremacists,” not conservatives or Republicans, who soured on Donald Trump and deserted him in the 2020 election. A whopping 7% of voters said that “racism” was the most important issue facing the country. Also, blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Muslims moved toward Trump, not away from him. Apparently, they didn’t buy into the “white supremacy” narrative.

Donald Trump and his campaign team were cucked on race. They were too afraid to crackdown on Black Lives Matter and Antifa. They were gaslit by the “white supremacy” narrative. As a result, they pandered to minorities, demoralized their base and the White vote slipped and they lost.

Could it have easily turned out otherwise? Yes, Donald Trump’s campaign took the White vote for granted. It is what got him elected in the first place in 2016. In the final analysis, it was what undid him in 2020. They ran a different kind of campaign in 2020 than 2016 in which Joe Biden was able to improve on Hillary Clinton in 41 out of 50 states and all but two swing states because of White guys.

[From “Can Republicans Maintain a Conservative-Populist Alliance?”]

Henry Olsen thinks a conservative-populist alliance is durable.
[…]
Here is what I would say in response:

•I would distinguish between social conservatives and business conservatives. The True Cons crowd which lives in the wealthy suburbs voted for Joe Biden and Republicans down ballot in 2020. They are going to continue to peel away in future elections because ultimately they care more about virtue signaling and their modernist and cosmopolitan values than any policy preference. After Trump catered to them for four years and gave them massive tax cuts, deregulation, military spending and their libertarian judges, they still voted for Joe Biden.
[…]
•As these former Republican establishment voters shift to the Democrats, Trump and the Republicans will inevitably be forced to compensate by winning over a greater share of working class voters toward the Center on the other side of the Republican coalition. The party will have to become more populist than it is today to stay viable.
•White racial attitudes are significantly harder in 2021 than in 2017 after everything that has happened since the George Floyd riots and the political, corporate and cultural establishment embracing the new definition of antiracism.
•The policy agenda cannot remain the same in light of the resorting of the electorate.

In four years, I think we will look back on the 2016-2024 period as a transition period. The Democrats are being gentrified like Washington, DC and are becoming the party of woke professionals.

It will be interesting to see how Jewish power plays out in the long term. Is this a permanent state of affairs or a passing historical era? As history rolls forward, will people continue to care as much about the Holocaust? What will happen to Jewish power centers like Hollywood which seems exhausted?

There are some reasons for optimism on this front given demographic changes in the Jewish community. History strongly suggests that our Jewish elite is doomed in the long run like all previous elites. Founders eventually produce degenerate grandsons and great-grandsons. We often forget that the sheer passage of time tends to solve even the most seemingly unresolvable problems. Things happen which we do not anticipate and which have unforeseen consequences.

RACE
In spite of the mainstream Right, which upholds consensus antiracism in our culture, I have developed a positive sense of White racial identity.[…]
SEX
Of what value is the mainstream Right on sex?

What is the GOP going to do about young women who are out of control and older women who have become cat ladies and gone crazy? To ask the question is to answer it.[…]
GENDER
The Supreme Court with Neil Gorsuch on the bench read transgenderism into the Civil Rights Act of 1964 this summer. Conservative liberalism couldn’t conserve the definition of marriage under Obama.[…]Insofar as we are up against the forces of sexual anarchy and gender fluidity in popular culture, we are on our own.
SOUTHERN IDENTITY
The GOP’s biggest accomplishment in this department is dumping the Mississippi State Flag and presiding over the destruction of hundreds of our monuments.[…]
JEWISH POWER & INFLUENCE
Obviously, the GOP under Trump isn’t of any value to us in this area. Sheldon Adelson hit the jackpot when Trump got elected in 2016.[…]
EDUCATION
Several generations ago, the GOP surrendered the public school system to blacks and progressive pedagogues, which is why I have to scrape up money from you to pay for my own son’s private school tuition. Now, the GOP is running on school choice so that the black kids in the “failing schools” can transfer to the private schools we pay for in addition to the public schools.[…]
LAW & ORDER[…]
Yeah, Donald Trump was elected in 2016 to restore “law and order,” but he spent his first term boasting about all the black felons he let out of prison with criminal justice reform and allowing Antifa and BLM to do whatever they wanted and burn down the country.

[From "The Second Klan and Modernism"]

In the early 1920s, the Second Klan was on the other side of the culture war between Victorians and Moderns that I have been describing in recent weeks. In fact, the rise of the Second Klan was more about national identity and this cultural and moral breakdown than it was about race.

The Second Klan appealed to Old Americans descended from the founding stock – White Anglo-Saxon Protestants – who lived in small towns and rural areas in the South, Midwest and West and who supported Prohibition and traditional moral values. This is why the Klan is so reviled while gangsters who killed far more people than the Klan ever did are romanticized in shows like Boardwalk Empire.
[…]
There really was a culture war and the Klan was on the losing side. Traditional moral values really were under attack by Jews and Modernists.[…]
I’ve seen some people in the comments trying to argue that everything was fine in the Roaring Twenties because of the triumph of immigration restriction in 1921 and 1924, eugenic sterilization laws and segregation. This ignores the fact that the opponents of all these things and of the Second Klan were still rising and gaining ground in this era. Henry Ford, for example, eventually had to suspend publication of The Dearborn Independent because of opposition from Jews. The Second Klan also faced implacable opposition from mainline Protestantism and the media.
[…]
There were only a few Jewish academics like Boas in the 1920s and they were already having a deleterious effect. By the 1950s though, the American intelligentsia had become half Jewish.

In the course of my research and activism, I began to notice something:

•First, the proposed solutions tend to fall into either the generic “mainstreaming” or “vanguardist” strategies neither of which have ever worked and which I do not believe ever will work.
•Second, the normal person is self absorbed and seems inwardly dead. They do not respond to appeals to collective self interest. Showing the flag doesn’t work.
•Third, far too many people in our circles are focused on the wrong time period like the War Between the States. The post-World War II era is our era.

The American South was Southern until the 1940s. We may have lost our independence to the Damn Yankees, but we were still very much a people in the Jim Crow South. We had a strong identity and a rich culture.[…]

The Yankees had a point about the South being backwards. This process was much more advanced in the North and West. It wasn’t confined to the South. It wasn’t confined to the United States. There were parallel developments in all Western countries. The details differed but not the overall trend toward a loss of identity, cultural cohesion and degeneration. What was the cause of this?[…]

Over the course of the next year, I want to explore the genealogy of the “mainstream.” What is the “mainstream”? Where did it originate? How did it triumph?[…]

The 20th century was the Age of Modernism which hasn’t yet ended in our own times. It grew out of intellectual and cultural developments in the 19th century. It was in many ways a repudiation of the 19th century and particularly of the values of its middle class. It was a rejection of “the masses.” As far as I can tell, this is a story which has never been told in our circles. It certainly isn’t understood.

Hunter Wallace and ATBOTL #racist #wingnut occidentaldissent.com

[From "American Racial Decline and Modernism"]

I’m bumping up my response to ATBOTL from the comments who raises some good points:

“American radical abolitionists like William Lloyd Garrison and Charles Sumner were openly anti-white in the current sense long before modernists had any influence anywhere or even existed. Most significantly, they a huge following among average, non-elite middle class whites in the North going back to the 1820’s. There was a mass movement of anti-white politics in the American North, based around liberal Puritan, Quaker and Methodist preachers that began to shift our culture in an anti-white direction even when many of the Founders were still alive.”

We’ve discussed this to death for years now.

It is true that liberalism existed in the 19th century. It is true that the Second Great Awakening spawned various religious and moral reform movements which were supported by middle class, White evangelical Protestants in Britain and the United States.[…]
Liberalism and Romanticism combined to produce abolitionism. Abolitionist literature focused on the poor, pitiful suffering slave and the cruelty and wickedness of the White master.[…] 19th century Americans argued over slavery and the rights of the negro due to liberalism
[…]
Charles Sumner reflected the liberalism of the Black Republicans.
[…]
Anglo-American ethnicity was unchallenged in the 19th century. Black Republicans like Charles Sumner and Thaddeus Stevens were liberals who thought that civil rights should be extended to blacks, but they didn’t go beyond that to demonizing and rejecting their own ethnic groups. Americans took great pride in their ethnic heritage until well into the 20th century. It is worth noting that T.S. Eliot became a British subject and Ezra Pound spent World War II supporting Mussolini in Italy. It illustrates how Modernists are so commonly estranged from their own people.

[From "H.L. Mencken, The Scopes Monkey Trial and the Culture War"]

H.L. Mencken was a journalist, an atheist, a libertarian and a Nietzschean. He shared Nietzsche and the Modernists contempt for the masses. No one in the 1920s had a greater negative impact on shaping the values and beliefs of young Losters and GIs in college rebelling against their Victorian parents than Mencken. Young people read The American Mercury on college campuses.

[…]

It was H.L. Mencken, Emma Goldman, Randolph Bourne and other Young Intellectuals who created the negative stereotype of the “Puritan” philistine. By “Puritan,” they meant anyone who was a Victorian in values and was religious like Southern Baptists and was opposed to their cultural libertarianism. The actual Puritans had long lost their cultural grip over New England in the early 18th century.

[…]

In the 1930s, H.L. Mencken went after FDR during the Great Depression who was an enormously popular figure. Mencken’s audience shifted Left in the 1930s as he faded in influence. The audience remained a bunch of smug, elitist assholes who were alienated from the Heartland and many of those young people who loved Mencken in the 1920s grew up to become New Deal technocrats.

The Scopes Trial of 1925 was the biggest battle of the culture war in the 1920s and pitted Clarence Darrow against William Jennings Bryan. The issue that was being contested was whether or not evolution could be taught in Tennessee public schools. The “Scopes Monkey Trial” was set up from the beginning as a media publicity stunt to heap ridicule and contempt on the backward American masses – all the Appalachian yokels that Mencken that was constantly railing about in The American Mercury.

When did our age begin?

What distinguishes Modern America from Victorian America?

The transition between the two began in the 1910s, World War I was the rupture and was complete by the Roaring Twenties. The Lost Generation was the first Modern generation.
[…]
On one side of this divide, American culture maintained hierarchies in race, sex and gender. Victorian culture divided the sexes into separate spheres and races into superior and inferior races. On the other side of this divide, American culture became antiracist, sexually liberated and ultimately gender fluid. Women started voting and became the equals of men in the workplace and in sexuality.
[…]
On one side of this divide, women dress modestly and it is scandalous to find respectable women alone and drinking at bars. Smoking is taboo for women. Women try to stay out of the sunlight because pale skin is considered beautiful. On the other side of the divide, Modern women are smoking, cutting their hair short, drinking and listening to jazz at speakeasies, dressing less modestly, going out to experience nightlife and having sex with men they have no intention of marrying. Tanning becomes fashionable.
[…]
On one side of this divide, Americans sharply divide the world into civilized and savage and privilege the former over the latter. On the other side of the divide, the primitive is exalted and the civilized is denigrated.
[…]
Arguably, the biggest and most impactful change was the rise of the entertainment industry in Hollywood, the mass media and Jewish dominance in the creation of 20th century mass culture.
[…]
War had been an ennobling experience for the older generations who thought it would reinvigorate their values. World War I though wasn’t the Civil War or the Spanish-American War.

A century ago, the Jewish sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld was pioneering the modern LGBTQ movement in Berlin in the Weimar Republic.

[...]

The Nazis drove Hirschfield out of Germany, burned his books and closed down his Institute for Sexual Science. He never got the chance to push the envelope of cultural degeneration as far as it has been taken in the modern West under liberal democracy.

We shouldn’t have any sympathy for Hirschfield. The shoe is on the other foot today and the same authoritarian methods are used to persecute anyone who stands against the tide of Jewish cultural degeneracy and Third World immigration. It is nationalists who are arrested and have their books burned and their speech restricted in modern Germany. More books were burned after World War II by the victorious Allies than were ever burned by the Nazis.

Note: It is anti-Semitic to notice what Jews are talking about on any given day.

[From "“Civil Rights Icon” John Lewis Is Finally Dead"]

John Lewis is dead.

By the way the media has reacted, you would think one of the Apostles had just passed away. Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington calls him “justice in the flesh.” Joe Biden says “we are all made in the image of God, and then there is John Lewis.” Stacey Abrams calls him “a griot of this modern age.” Elizabeth Warren calls him a “giant” and a “moral compass.” The New York Times calls him “a human saint.”

For what is John Lewis deserving of such lavish praise? It is not for his accomplishments during the 33 years he served in Congress representing Atlanta. It is for one thing. It is for leading a mob in a march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AL on March 7, 1965. After being ordered to disperse, John Lewis refused to do so and the mob was repulsed by Alabama State Troopers. The event was labeled “Bloody Sunday” by the media. It became part of the narrative of the Civil Rights Movement. It made John Lewis a “civil rights icon” and was a key event that led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

In this sacred narrative, John Lewis was transformed from a mere human being made in the image of God into a saint and a civil rights martyr who advanced the cause of “equality,” “justice” and “progress” through civil disobedience against state and local authorities. The Edmund Pettus Bridge became a symbol. Religious pilgrims from across the world trickle into Selma to this day to see the relic which has become a modern equivalent of a Medieval shrine. Selma ceased to be a city in Alabama were people live and work and took on national significance. In 2014, the movie Selma was released which glorified MLK and John Lewis. The film was nominated for the Golden Globe Awards and Academy Awards.

In my lifetime, I knew Rep. John Lewis mainly as a civil rights dinosaur who was a throwback to another era who was fond of calling Trump a racist and illegitimate president. I also knew him for coming back to Selma every year for the holy pilgrimage in which he would reenact his march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge that made him famous. Every year in early March out of state progressive liberal politicians like Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton and the media would parachute into Selma for a photo op on the bridge before leaving town and coming back a year later to reenact the same cynical ritual. By marching across the magic bridge, even the Rev. Al Sharptons of the world became righteous and holy.

There is another darker side of the legacy of John Lewis. Selma and the surrounding region never really ceased to be a place where people live and work after 1965. It just ceased to matter in anything but the symbolic sense to the media. After John Lewis left town, the cameras left, the marching stopped and civil rights legislation was signed into law, the people who lived in Selma and the Alabama Black Belt had to go on living under the new order. Black majority rule came to “Historic Selma.” History moved on and in the 55 years that have elapsed since “Bloody Sunday” the practical result has been that Selma has become the poorest city in Alabama and the ninth poorest city in the entire United States.

This symbol of “equality” is now one of the worst and most unequal places to live in the country. This symbol of “justice” is now unjust to anyone unfortunate enough to be born there. This symbol of “progress” is a blighted and abandoned television prop. The Voting Rights Act succeeded in establishing black majority rule. In doing so, it obliterated civilization because Whites didn’t want to live there anymore or invest in the community. As for “Bloody Sunday,” no one died on that day, but now Selma is the most dangerous city in Alabama and one of the most dangerous cities in the country.

In Game of Thrones series, The Doom of Valyria destroyed Valyrian civilization. Go to Selma in 2020 and you will see that John Lewis brought a similar Doom which has settled like a black cloud above the city. Selma is now a cursed place which is sinking into ruin and slowly being reclaimed by the wilderness. It is an American version of Pompeii that was destroyed by the Civil Rights Movement.

[From "The Second Klan and Victorianism"]

What was the Second Klan about in the 1920s?
[…]
As it turns out, the Second Klan wasn’t so much about race or violence against blacks as it was about defending America’s traditional White Anglo-Protestant national identity, culture and morals in the culture war of the 1920s against Jews, Catholics and modernists.
[…]
It was an American Nationalist group that defended the Victorian consensus in national identity, culture and morality. America was a White, Anglo-Saxon (in culture), Protestant nation.
[…]
The Second Klan wasn’t a violent organization.

There were lynchings in the 1920s and deadly race riots in places like Tulsa and Rosewood, but racial violence didn’t have much to do with the Klan. It was more focused on Prohibition.
[…]
In order to understand the Second Klan, you have to understand the Victorian mindset which segregated men and women into separate spheres and gender roles, ranked the different races and nationalities in a hierarchy, sharply distinguished between the “civilized” and “savage” and saw the home as a sort of school where Protestant children were taught the moral virtues that collectively made up their “character.” A good person was a hardworking, sober, pious person who practiced self-denial and the moral virtues and who had genteel manners. This is what the modernists rebelled against in the 1920s.
[…]
Again, it is no mystery why the Jewish press and modernists hated the Klan because it was opposed to their corruption and campaign of moral and cultural degeneration.

[From "Joe Biden Apologizes For Remarks About Working With Segregationists"]

I hope more people are finally able to grasp where this is going.

First they came for the slaveholders between the 1830s and 1860s who were an easy target because slavery was such a massive conservative and authoritarian counterweight to the perfection of the North’s ideology of free-market capitalism and liberal democracy.

If you are wondering why I am personally so fascinated by slavery, it is because I am convinced that slavery kept the South somewhat balanced, anchored in reality and resistant to the pursuit of destructive liberal trends while the lack of slavery in the North has led that section of the country to be carried away by any number of fanciful utopian delusions over the course of American history.

In the 1950s and 1960s, they came for the segregationists because Jim Crow was similarly a massive conservative and authoritarian counterweight to the place that Northern liberals wanted to take the country. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 destroyed the segregationists and empowered mainstream conservatism which finally removed the brakes on the American experiment that had historically kept American democracy from descending to the level of Jacobin France.

Now, we are prepping for the third act which is the final demographic destruction of the great internal enemy of Americanism which is the conservative and Christian South through a toxic brew of abortion, miscegenation, immigration, political correctness and consumerism. In the long run, the Southern Christians who have opposed gay marriage and transgenderism will be demonized in the same way as the “racists,” “white supremacists,” “segregationists” and “slaveholders.”

There is no possibility for forgiveness either. In the 1970s, Joe Biden and other Boomers had assumed that the country had moved on from segregation as it had moved on from slavery. We’re never allowed to move on though because “sinners” must be constantly punished. Just look at how fast mainstream conservatives have become the new Nazis. Even Joe Biden who was Barack Obama’s Vice President isn’t woke enough for this crowd. Do you think it is possible to live in peace with them?

[From "The Retreat of Racial Science"]

At the beginning of the 20th century, America was still in the Victorian era. American identity was White, Anglo-Saxon (in culture), Protestant and liberal and republican in principles. There was an overwhelming national consensus in support of progress, traditional moral values and the Anglo-American literary canon. The dominant aesthetic was New England and Appalachian Regionalism.

American dominant ethnicity looked something like the left hand column before the big Victorian-to-Modern cultural transition that we are exploring:

image
["American Dominant Ethnicity" vs. "Avant-Guard Community"][…]

In 1910, race was still considered an objective biological reality. There was no moral stigma attached to either White identity or the belief that racial differences exist. The development of “antiracism” was still in the future and occurred largely in New York in the 1920s and 1930s.

This was not an isolated change. It was part of a larger sweeping cultural change that unsettled and transformed everything in America in the interwar years: manners, morals, national identity, gender roles, dress, art, literature, music, dance, architecture, religion, psychology, etc.

[…]

Before the 1910s, America was characterized by regional cultures dominated by their metropoles. Boston was the cultural capital of America. In the 1920s though, New York became the largest metropolitan area in the world and the cultural capital of the United States. It reduced other metropolitan areas into its satellites. The culture of the New York avant-garde became “mainstream” culture.

[From "American History Series: Review: Sociology for the South, or, The Failure of Free Society"]

The 1840s and 1850s were a time much like our own.

In the wake of the Second Great Awakening, an endless tidal wave of moral condemnation of the South poured forth from the Eastern press and Eastern politicians. Inspired by George Bancroft’s vision which was articulated in the volumes of his A History of the United States, 19th century liberalism was gaining traction and putting down roots among Eastern industrial and commercial elites. American society came to be perceived as wicked and in need of immediate and sweeping reform on many fronts. Secular reform and utopian religious movements sprung up all over the deeply unsettled region.

Southern slavery was over two centuries old at this point, but the evangelical religious revival that swept across the East created a new sense of urgency that it needed to be immediately abolished by righteous Yankees in order to stamp out sin, usher in the millennium and create a New Jerusalem on earth. This moment was the dawn of the American Left in a parade of social causes and religious cults: the Millerite movement, the Shakers, the Mormons, and Seventh Day Adventists, Charles Grandison Finney and the doctrine of perfectionism, temperance which culminated in Prohibition, women’s suffrage which culminated in the 19th amendment, opposition to Indian Removal, Transcendentalism, pacifism and opposition to the Mexican War. The various evil seen in need of reform at times was also tobacco, Freemasonry, Catholicism and even marriage which was an obstacle to free love. It was in this social context that abolitionism and racial equality also came to be seen as worthwhile causes.

As the South came under withering attack from these utopian dreamers, Southern conservatives became increasingly defensive and began to explicitly defend slavery as a positive good. Sen. John C. Calhoun led this defense of the South in the Senate for nearly twenty years in the Antebellum era from the Nullification Crisis to his death in 1850. Calhoun’s treatise A Disquisition on Government marked a conservative shift in Southern thought toward order, authority, security and the limits of liberty.

Thomas Jefferson was an ardent republican who represented the first generation of Southerners who abhorred slavery and believed that free blacks could enjoy equal rights in Africa. Liberia was established by his successors as an outlet for this philanthropic purpose. John C. Calhoun represented the second generation of Southerners who came to defend slavery as a positive good and broke with equal rights while remaining largely within the framework of Old Republican thought. Calhoun laid the groundwork for nullification and secession. Finally, George Fitzhugh was the sharpest thinker of the third generation of Southerners who were even more conservative than Calhoun’s generation.

This was the context in which George Fitzhugh wrote Sociology for the South, or, The Failure of Free Society which was published in 1854. The book builds on his earlier pamphlets Slavery Justified and What Shall Be Done With The Free Negroes? which are attached as an appendix.


Sociology for the South is significant because it was a truly radical conservative reimagining of the American Founding as well as a groundbreaking prescription for how to reset the American future. As Louis Hartz described it, the Southern Reactionary Enlightenment was “the great imaginative moment in American political thought, the moment when America almost got out of itself, and looked with some objectivity on the liberal form it has known since birth.” To put it mildly, it is a deeply illiberal book.


George Fitzhugh wasn’t just content to defend slavery like most of his contemporaries. He thought deeply about why slavery was being attacked and the motivations of its assailants. He deeply thought about his own society and its past, present and future. He thought about why the Southern model was good and how best to defend it from its critics. He thought about what was wrong about the Northern model and why it was a failure. In doing so, he laid the foundation for a new Southern conservatism.


In Sociology for the South, Fitzhugh marshaled the Bible, Aristotle, Sir Robert Filmer, Thomas Carlyle and Tory conservatism, the French sociologists and even the critiques of the socialists to launch a blistering counter attack on John Locke, Adam Smith and the political economists and the very roots of liberalism or what he labeled the system of “Free Society.” Fitzhugh was unfamiliar with his contemporary Karl Marx but echoed many of his most scathing criticisms of free-market capitalism.

[...]

George Fitzhugh explicitly saw the Revolution of ’61 as a Tory counterrevolution to the Patriot Revolution of ’76:

[...]

Everything would have worked out fine too were it not for the “pompous inanties of the Declaration of Independence.” The republican structure of the government was sound. The English tradition of constitutional liberty was sound. White identity and the English language, Protestant Christianity and the common law and virtually everything that America started out with that was promising and defined its new national identity was derived from its English parent. America’s vibrant culture of liberty was part of a tradition which was the “accretion” of countless generations of Englishmen – 170 years of the colonial era and further back than that into the time of King Alfred and the Anglo-Saxons in the Middle Ages – and had not sprung into the world from abstract doctrines of Enlightenment philosophers. It was the axioms contained within the Declaration of Independence which 19th century liberalism latched onto to legitimize itself that had wrecked the country and brought about the dissolution of the Union.

Alexander Stephens used Fitzhugh’s Tory theory and language in his Cornerstone Speech. The Confederates preserved the structure of the American Republic while pruning its liberal axioms. Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens both wrote volumes on constitutional liberty.

[...]

In “The Conservative Principle; or, Social Evils and Their Remedies,” Fitzhugh made clear that the slavery principle is synonymous with the conservative principle of order, subordination and government. He was unique in being able to step out of his time and anticipate that the diabolical nature of the liberal system would eventually demolish the social order entirely as it descended into anarchy.

[...]

Liberalism must be rejected.

Frankenstein’s monster has turned on his master and is now rampaging through our streets. The post-World War II attempt by the liberal establishment to base America on nothing more than anti-racism and the axioms of liberty and equality has led us to this dystopia.

Gov. Bill Lee Wants To Get Rid of Nathan Bedford Forrest Day

[From "American History Series: The Fourteenth Amendment"]

I’m really enjoying Eric Foner’s new book.

This is probably the best book he has ever written.

The following excerpt comes from Eric Foner’s The Second Founding: How The Civil War And Reconstruction Remade The Constitution:

“Howard’s mention of the Bill of Rights highlighted the dramatic change in the federal system brought about by the Reconstruction amendments. The Bill of Rights had been designed to restrict the actions of Congress, not the states. Chief Justice John Marshall stated this unequivocally in the case of Barron v. Baltimore (1833): “these amendments demanded security against the apprehended encroachments of the general government – not against those of the local governments.” In legal terminology, Howard was described the “incorporation” of the Bill of Rights – that is requiring states to abide by its provisions – a process that has been going on for much of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first.”

As we previously noted, The First Founding and the Bill of Rights restricted the power of the federal government. The Tenth Amendment reserved all powers not explicitly granted to the federal government to the states. During the White Republic, there was no uniform definition of federal citizenship, no such thing as birthright citizenship and above all else there was no liberal state that had the power to enforce equal rights. Liberals appealed to the rhetoric of the Declaration of Independence.

[...]

The First Founding gave the sovereign states vast powers and enormous room to preserve illiberal institutions. It used to be a crime in the South to criticize slavery and to promote miscegenation. The Southern social order was based on patriarchy and paternalism.

“The Fourteenth Amendment for the first time elevates equality to a constitutional right of all Americans. It makes the Constitution a vehicle through which aggrieved groups and individuals who believe that they are being denied equality can take their claims to court.”

“Equality” wasn’t a part of the Constitution until the 14th Amendment except in the sense that each state had an equal number of senators and the possibility of a tie in the electoral college in a presidential election.

[...]

There were vociferous objections to the Fourteenth Amendment at the time:

“With equal persistence, Democrats contended that the amendment would destroy traditions of local self-rule and “invest all power in the national government. …”

[...]

As Eric Foner notes, the Reconstruction Amendments and federal civil rights legislation did all these things and much more by empowering the federal government to enforce the nebulous concept of “equal rights” and by depriving the states of their traditional powers. No one at the time anticipated how the Fourteenth Amendment could be stretched to legitimize sodomy, miscegenation, gay marriage and transgenderism. Every criticism that was lodged against it at the time ultimately came true.

This was also true of the Brown decision in the 1950s. The critics of the Brown decision denied the existence of racial equality. They denied that integrated schools would accomplish the goal of eliminating the racial gap in academic performance by eliminating racial discrimination. 65 years later, the critics of Brown have been utterly vindicated. And yet, Brown has become sacrosanct even though it never worked. How much money has been squandered on rebuilding entire metro areas to escape integration?

[From "The Murder of Julius Streicher"]

WrongThink will get you killed.

Julius Streicher was the famous owner and editor of Der Stürmer, which was a tabloid-style newspaper published from 1923-1945 in Germany. The newspaper was well-known for its abject contra-Semitic narrative and promotion of traditional and wholesome German values. Its fundament goal was to promote awareness of the Jewish Question and the war on Whites that World Jewry had been waging for centuries. At its peak, it reached a circulation of 600,000 in 1935 and was distributed to several different countries, including the United States.

[...]

Streicher came from a humble background. He was the son of a teacher and became one himself. He was also a war hero during WWI, having been awarded the Iron Cross, and whose outstanding battlefield achievements culminated in him rising to the rank of officer in a time when most of whom were part of the aristocracy.

After the war, Streicher quickly became disillusioned with Weimar Germany. He joined the National Socialist German Workers’ Party in 1921 because he hated the neoliberal capitalist anti-German government by which his beloved country and people were being ruled. He decided the best way to fight back was to plunge into the propaganda war that was being used to undermine, divide, and destroy his people. The first copy of Der Stürmer was published on April 20, 1923.

Der Stürmer was wildly successful and made Julius Streicher very famous and wealthy. Because of paper shortages during WWII, the publication was placed in enclosed reading stands so the German public was able to keep reading their favorite newspaper. The publication remained extremely popular despite any attempt to stem its admiration and readership up until its last date of publication on February 1, 1945.

Germany surrendered in May of 1945, and Julius Streicher was captured on May 23, 1945 in Austria. He was promptly arrested and charged with war crimes despite never having been a member of the military, taking part in the alleged planning of the Holohoax, working at any concentration camps, or being part of the invasion of any other countries or territories. He merely wrote a weekly newspaper.

Julius Streicher was found guilty of crimes against humanity because he was labeled an “accessory to murder” and was sentenced to be executed on October 1, 1946.

[...]

Despite the fact that Streicher complained that all his judges were Jewish and the full admission by the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal that Streicher had never physically committed nor actively participated in any violent act against another human being during the war, he was murdered by hanging on October 16, 1946. Sadly, he did not die quickly since the execution seems to have been performed improperly, which caused him to suffer tremendously before his death.

Funny how Chink Anglin, aka, the Mongolian Manlet, is guilty of causing lots of division and unrest in the pro-white community, just like his alleged adversaries the jews would do.

Antisocial, chronically unemployed males in their 30s who are unmarried, childless whoremongers, fugitives, latent homosexuals, pederasts and con artists – that’s who comprises the Anglin wing of the alt-right “movement”. Except for Azzholemador, who is closer to 70.

Posted by Ron:

I think Andre’s attraction to young and underage Asians is just a sign of his obvious homosexuality. A homosexual is a pedophile, the two are indistinguishable from one another. It’s been mentioned by others here as well that White men who are attracted to Asian women are in actuality homosexuals that are turned on by their boyish figures.

There really is nothing attractive about an Asian woman to a normal healthy heterosexual White male.

[From "Russia Insider: Jews Are Feeling Guilty: They Should Be. Their Influence Has Been Cancerous to America"]

Good article.

We’re not motivated by blind, irrational hatred of Jews. The thing that motivates us is the negative impact that Jews are having on our culture and politics and our inability to openly discuss this problem. This repression of frank discussions about Jewish power and influence is simply making matters worse because it fuels paranoia and when some people who are mentally unstable do find out about it they are unable to control their anger and lash out.

Russia Insider

“It has become an institutional Jewish habit to examine how much Jews are hated by their host nations and how fearful Jews are of their neighbours. Jewish press outlets reported yesterday that “9 out of 10 US Jews worry about anti-Semitism.”

I, for one, can’t think of another people who invest so much energy in measuring their unpopularity. Despite the scale of Islamophobia and anti-Black racism, we are not subjected to a constant barrage of ‘statistics’ to ‘warn us’ of how hated Blacks are or how unsafe Muslims feel.

The American Jewish Committee’s (AJC) statistics suggest that “most Jews think that the situation is getting worse.” I find their statistics unlikely but I guess any mathematically inclined person would agree that if 9 out of 10 are fearful, then the situation can’t get much ‘worse’ as 10 out of 10 would constitute only a minor increase (11%). …

US Jews may want to follow the early Zionists, such as Theodor Herzl, who turned guilt into self-examination.

[...]

Israel wasn’t a solution to the Jewish Question.

After creating their own nation-state, Jews naturally couldn’t stop trying to control other nations to advance the interests of Israel. They couldn’t be like Switzerland. There is no such thing as “a rise in global anti-Swissism” because the Swiss are content to govern themselves.

[From "Southern History Series: The White League of Louisiana"]

Editor’s Note: The Rainbow Confederates are unable to explain why thousands of Confederate veterans banded together to overthrow the government of Louisiana during Reconstruction instead of settling down to enjoy the fruits of the new multiracial democratic paradise.

The following excerpt which appeared in The Franklin Enterprise before the election of 1874 describes the formation of the White League in Louisiana during the later days of Reconstruction. It comes from Stephen Budiansky’s book The Bloody Shirt: Terror After The Civil War:

“We ask for no assistance; we protest against any intervention. We own this soil of Louisiana, by virtue of our endeavor, as a heritage from our ancestors, and it is ours, and ours alone. Science, literature, history, art, civilization, and law belong alone to us, and not to the negroes. They have no record but barbarism and idolatry, nothing since the war but that of error, incapacity, beastliness, voudouism, and crime. Their right to vote is but the result of the war, their exercise of it a monstrous imposition, and a vindictive punishment upon us for that ill-advised rebellion.

Therefore we are banding together in a White League army, drawn up only on the defensive, exasperated by continual wrong, it is true, but acting under Christian and high-principled leaders, and determined to defeat these negroes in their infamous design of depriving us of all we hold sacred and precious on the soil of our nativity or adoption, or perish in the attempt.

Come what may, upon the radical party must rest the whole responsibility of this conflict, as sure as there is a just God in heaven, their unnatural, cold-blooded and revengeful measures of reconstruction in Louisiana will meet with a terrible retribution.”

Here is the platform of the White League:

“Disregarding all minor questions of principle or policy, and having solely in view the maintenance of our hereditary civilization and Christianity menaced by a stupid Africanization, we appeal to men of our race, of whatever language or nationality, to unite with us against that supreme danger. A league of whites is the inevitable result of that formidable, oath-bound, and blindly obedient league of the blacks, which, under the command of the most cunning and unscrupulous negroes in the State, may at any moment plunge us into a war of races . . . It is with some hope that a timely and proclaimed union of the whites as a race, and their efficient preparation for any emergency, may arrest the threatened horrors of social war, and teach the blacks to beware of further insolence and aggression, that we call upon the men of our race to leave in abeyance all lesser considerations; to forget all differences of opinions and all race prejudices of the past, and with no object in view but the common good of both races, to unite with us in an earnest effort to re-establish a white man’s government in the city and the State.”

Does that sound like the eternal principles of classical liberalism? In Louisiana and other Southern states, classical liberalism to the extent it ever existed here was always counterbalanced by the even more powerful authoritarian forces of slavery and white supremacy.

Louisiana was one of three Southern states with black majorities which had the worst, most bitter experience with Reconstruction. The other two states were Mississippi and South Carolina. The enfranchisement of the former slaves and the disenfranchisement of Confederate veterans by the Radical Republicans produced an explosive situation in the state. Louisiana came to be ruled by carpetbaggers who plundered the prostrate state on the basis of the black vote.

The White League was a paramilitary organization composed of Confederate veterans which fought to restore white supremacy in Louisiana. This culminated in the Battle of Liberty Place in 1874 when 5,000 members of the White League fought and defeated the forces of the Republican carpetbag governor in the streets of New Orleans. The White League actually took New Orleans and the Louisiana State House, but was forced to withdraw after President Grant sent federal troops to relieve the city.

Why was the Yankee occupation so bitterly resented in Louisiana? Shouldn’t everyone in Louisiana have celebrated abolition and the triumph of the universal principles of the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal” and meekly submitted to black majority rule? This is a peculiarly Yankee perspective of the American Revolution that was utterly foreign to the South. The Old South believed in classical republicanism, not classical liberalism. These men celebrated “liberty” in the sense that they saw themselves as the Roman paterfamilias of their plantations.

Louisianans believed that the sort of “liberty” and “equality” and “democracy” unleashed in their state during Reconstruction was utterly destructive and was a moral smokescreen calculated to dispossess them in their own lands while enriching Yankee carpetbags in the process.

[From "American History Series: Distinctions of Rights"]

I’m continuing to enjoy reading Eric Foner’s new book The Second Founding: How The Civil War And Reconstruction Remade The Constitution in part because it sheds so much light on the ongoing Sohrab Ahmari vs. David French debate within mainstream conservatism.

[...]

This is an important point.

Americans didn’t think about “rights” in the same way today that we did before the War Between the States. This is particularly true of the South. Every Southern state was a slave state. The Constitution had secured slavery. It was the states that determined citizenship, not the federal government, and blacks weren’t citizens of any states in the antebellum era outside of New England.

There was no such thing as negro equality – natural, civil, political or social – and the mainstream consensus of the antebellum era was a strong denial of it. There used to be sharp distinctions between these various categories of rights. Ultimately, the Supreme Court decided that blacks weren’t eligible to be American citizens at all in the Dred Scott decision, which is why the 14th Amendment had to be passed during Reconstruction to uphold the constitutionality of the Civil Rights Act of 1866.

[...]

It was the Confederacy that fought to defend the old America made up of organic communities that was a White Republic that was comfortable with inequality and limited government.

It was the Union that fought to create a new consolidated and centralized nation-state based on liberal democracy, free-market capitalism, industrialism and abolitionism.

In that war, one side fought for classical republicanism and the other side fought for liberal democracy. This is a subtle, but hugely important philosophical distinction.

Hunter Wallace #racist occidentaldissent.com

[From "How It Came To This"]

I agree with this.

The progressive liberal belief in absolute equality is daily affronted by the reality of intractable racial differences. It has been over 150 years since the demise of slavery and 50 years since the demise of segregation. Neither abolition or integration has brought about the liberal utopia.

How do progressive liberals explain this chasm between reality and their ideals and expectations? They do what all liberals do. They explain it through a combination of hysteria, denial and conspiracy theories. Even if there are no actual racists oppressing black people, they are being oppressed by the mysterious forces of “systemic racism” and “institutional racism.” White people benefit from the invisible knapsack of “white privilege.” As the evil oppressors of blacks, the only way to bring about true equality and to establish a just society is to treat White people differently than black people. White people have to be punished for their unwitting sins and the sins of their ancestors. This is “social justice” or “racial justice.”

In such a way, the twisted logic of progressive liberalism leads back to racial hierarchy, inequality and actual racism. Oddly enough, it leads to both intolerance and bigotry and the loss of liberty and equality for Whites who are returned to the feudal state, bowing and kneeling and prostrating themselves before their racial superiors who are endowed with the divine quality of blackness.

From a non-liberal perspective, it is utterly alien:

[From "Southern History Series: The Rise of Modernism"]

If you want to understand how and why the South is the way it is today, you won’t find the answer in the distant past. The roots of the present crisis trace back to the Second World War and the Cold War, begin in the North and overwhelm the South during the Civil Rights Movement.

The South as it existed from Redemption through the Great Depression was a totally different world. It was becoming more homogeneous, not heterogeneous. It was poor, not wealthy and bourgeois. It had a colonial extractive economy based on agriculture and mining, not on services and commerce. It was overwhelmingly rural, not urban and suburban. It was highly personal and deeply rooted, not anonymous and alienated. It was segregated, not integrated. It was strongly Protestant, not agnostic, atheist or apathetic. It had a rural elite that celebrated traditional values based in the county seats, not a metropolitan middle class animated by economic growth. The Solid South was Democratic, not Republican. It was racially conscious, not racially masochistic. It built monuments to the Confederate dead as opposed to tearing them down. Its people got their news from other people at the country store or through the editor of their local segregationist newspaper, not through television.

The following excerpts come from Numan V. Bartley’s book The New South: 1945-1980:

[...]

The southern white-collar legions were a rising force in society and politics. Despite the frequent references to a “new middle class,” its membership, aside from being overwhelmingly white in racial composition, was a more diverse aggregation than some contemporary accounts implied …

They were better educated and more widely informed on public issues than southerners generally and, according to opinion polls, were more tolerant on racial matters. Their families were in the vanguard of the stampede to suburbia and of the introduction of far-reaching changes in southern lifestyles. They formed the base for the open-schools movement and for the moderate position in southern politics.”

[...]

Let’s stop here for a moment and think about the consequences of the technological revolution that swept the South between 1940 and 1970. The tractor and mechanical cotton picker destroyed sharecropping which unsettled millions of people in the lowland South. Similarly, the mechanization of coal mining led to an exodus out of Appalachia in the 1950s. The television transformed Southern politics by making local racial conflicts – things like the lynching of Emmett Till or the rebuff of John Lewis on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma – into narratives of international significance in the Cold War.

The invention and spread of the air conditioner homogenized the Southern climate and made it attractive to transplants. Florida went from being the smallest Southern state to one of the largest states in the country because of the air conditioner. The bulldozer began to level the areas around our major cities which is where suburbia was created and millions of people moved from rural areas into the suburbs of the new ballooning metropolitan areas where the Baby Boomers were raised on the television.

There was a shift in power from the rapidly depopulating Black Belt, which had been the historical stronghold of white supremacy and segregation, to the metropolitan areas and their suburbs. After the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Black Belt was placed under black majority rule. The White middle class of the suburbs and the metropolitan elites became the dominant class in the South after 1970.

“Some academics and progressives bemoaned the materialism and shallowness of urban middle-class lief. Robert J. Steamer wrote in 1963 that a typical member was a “rootless nomad whose primary, and sometimes, only loyalty is to business. His political ideas are substantially barren, because at bottom, materialism is his life philosophy, but translating his thought into political maxims we get free enterprise, fiscal sanity, balanced budgets,” and certainly it was true that the South’s uptown business leadership frequently equated sensible social policy with what best served the exigencies of the real estate market. …

A South Carolina observer remarked about moderates, “I don’t think they take the Negroes seriously as people … They look at it as something … that doesn’t really have much to do with them.” Middle-class metropolitan southerners threatened the paternal order because of their commitment to atomistic individualism, consumer materialism, upward mobility, and unfettered economic development.”

Sounds familiar.

[...]

This would be me … not a deracinated ideologue or a fanatic, but someone who clings to the old ways, values, traditions and sense of identity of the Black Belt, someone who values my roots, ancestors and social stability as opposed to chasing after social status or worshiping the GDP. I despise mainstream conservatism because I am a Southern conservative populist. We’re not retreating from mainstream conservatism anymore though. We’re going on the offensive.

[...]

This is an interesting passage.

The most striking thing about the “white supremacy” and mass shootings narrative is that under actual white supremacy in the Jim Crow South we didn’t have mass shootings. We had plenty of guns, but none of this nihilistic anti-social rage and alienation which is at bottom an attempt to escape from the sick anti-culture that we live under in our own times. The people who engage in mass shootings want to draw attention to their profound psychological angst and pain.

[...]

The American dream of living in a nice little house in an artificial community with “good schools” adjacent to big box stores was a nursery of countless social and psychological problems. In hindsight, it was probably healthier to live in a shack with no electricity or an indoor toilet. In those days, you inherited your beliefs, values and politics from granddaddy who sat on the front porch and told you who you were and where you come from. Now, you absorb all the Jewish poison that is pulsating through the “mainstream” culture around you while in college or through being immersed in the mass media.

What’s the solution? Think of it as a great catastrophe that we have lived through. The old organic culture has to resprout from its roots in much the same way that a clearcut forest grows back.

There is an ongoing debate right now in our circles regarding where White advocates should focus their collective energies when it comes to fighting our anti-White enemies. This is a fundamentally stupid and shocking conversation that certainly requires an immediate redress. The obvious answer is White advocates should always be criticizing anti-White Jewish power no matter what. They are undoubtably the linchpin of this anti-White system and must be defeated in order for White people to liberate ourselves from their diabolical clutches.

[...]

The only way Whites can win is by directly confronting Jewish power. The Jews control banking, international finance, media, the judiciary, and most politicians. No other race or ethnicity even comes close to the power wielded by Jews who are so few in number. Our lives are currently so kosher now that most us do not even realize how much we are really controlled by them no matter how aware we are of Jewish subversion and societal domination.

Palestinians are well-aware of the evils of Jews more than any other group of people in the world at this time because of the extreme maliciousness and aggression from their Jewish masters they deal with on a daily basis.

The Jews want all the land from the Euphrates to the Nile, and the Palestinians are currently standing in their way.

Whites are also standing in the way of Jews at the moment. Immigration, (anti-White) civil rights laws, Wall St. and the corporatocracy, affirmative action, the judiciary, and our entire foreign policy are all controlled by Jews for their exclusive benefit. We can bury our heads in the sand and pretend the world disappears all we want, but that does not change the fact that Jews are currently in charge of this anti-White paradigm. The only way to win is to defeat ZOG and the anti-White Jews that control it. Until then, we are doomed to the same fate as the Palestinians.

[From "Southern History Series: The Dred Scott Decision"]

Have you ever read the Dred Scott decision of 1857?

If you haven’t done so, I would highly recommend it. The Dred Scott decision was written by Chief Justice Roger Taney who was a native of Maryland. It struck down the Missouri Compromise which opened all the Western territories to slavery. Taney used history and law to explain why blacks were not American citizens and had “no rights which the white man was bound to respect.” He also said the Constitution was formed by the Founders “for them and their posterity, but for no one else.”

[...]

Aside from his ruling in the Dred Scott decision, Taney is known for the [I]Ex parte Merryman[/I] decision in which he denied that Lincoln had the right to suspend the writ of habeas corpus and arrest John Merryman who was being held as a political prisoner in Fort McHenry following the Baltimore Riot of 1861. Lincoln ignored and defied the order of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

After the War Between the States, the Reconstruction Amendments had to be passed at gunpoint by the Republican Party to establish black citizenship and voting rights. This was because of Taney’s ruling in the Dred Scott decision and the fear the Civil Rights Act of 1866 would be found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. The Founders had created a White Republic and a voluntary Union of sovereign states for their posterity which Lincoln and his Radical Republican allies in Congress overturned to create the centralized and consolidated empire that we live under today.

1.) First, Jim Crow was a Southern system of race relations, and most of America had been integrated for generations before segregation ended in the 1960s. W.E.B. DuBois, an early 20th century civil rights leader, graduated from Harvard in 1895.

2.) Second, John Wayne’s position was mainstream in the early 20th century. The British, for example, saw their African colonies as “trusteeships.” They were educating and civilizing black Africans to prepare them for eventual independence. The famous African explorer David Livingstone summed it up in his formula: Christianity, commerce, civilization. Rudyard Kipling called it “The White Man’s Burden.” British colonialism in Africa was more paternalistic than malicious and most African colonies were a financial drain. In fact, the British dealt with the Boers more ruthlessly than any African tribe.

3.) Third, the mainstream consensus used to be that it was reckless and unwise to grant African colonies independence that were unprepared for it. Churchill made this point to FDR. Europeans in Africa abolished slavery and cannibalism. They introduced Christianity. They introduced air travel, railroads, electricity, hospitals, sanitation, public health measures against malaria within a span of less than 75 years, etc. They build modern cities like Leopoldville and Stanleyville in the Congo.

4.) Fourth, the early 20th century was a time of relative peace and rapid social and economic development in Africa, especially compared to Europe and East Asia which went through World War I and World War II. After World War II, the US and Soviet Union both embraced anti-imperialism in order to expand their spheres of influence in the Third World at the expense of the European powers. They wanted the British and French out of Africa so that they could move in.

5.) Fifth, the combination of decolonization, anti-racism, political correctness and independence led to disaster in nearly every country in sub-Saharan Africa. The only possible exception is Botswana which has wisely managed its wealth from diamond mining. Most African states were barely prepared for independence and even those that had developed a native intelligentsia and some degree of Western institutions like Ghana destroyed themselves pursuing Afrocentric Marxism. Thrusting independence on African states that were grossly unprepared for it created nothing but misery for the vast majority of several generations of Africans who ended up under “big men” like Mobutu and Mugabe.

6.) Sixth, the same thing had happened in Haiti and Liberia long before it overwhelmed the rest of sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean. It is worth noting that the states where “white supremacy” lasted the longest like Guadeloupe and Martinique or Barbados and South Africa led to a higher standard of living for blacks. Compare Haiti to Guadeloupe and Martinique.

7.) Finally, it eventually got so bad in sub-Saharan Africa that Europeans intervened to put a stop to the civil wars in Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast and Liberia, tried to stop the clan violence in Somalia, split South Sudan from Sudan, intervened in Darfur, rescued Ethiopia and the entire Sahel from famine, fed the Hutu refugees who fled from the Rwandan genocide, etc. The UN has more or less taken over Haiti. Sub-Saharan Africa would be vastly better off today if it had remained pacified under colonialism until it had learned to become prosperous like Hong Kong.

“Woke” journalists are condemning John Wayne for pointing out the obvious truth that sub-Saharan Africa was grossly unprepared for independence. It was their romantic attitudes that destroyed Congo, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Guinea-Bissau and lots of African states.

Selena Gomez and the Hispanization of America

Pop culture is one of the most powerful forces shaping people today. From teenagers to adults (think of 40-something women trying to be Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives MILFs and cougars), pop culture shapes the way people want themselves and their lives to be. Even more importantly pop culture is both an indicator and shaper of the way the broader culture is going. That is why those across the Right make a grave mistake simply writing it off without engaging it whatsoever.

Working for a local suburban before and after school program at the elementary school in the morning and the middle school in the afternoon was where I noticed this. At the elementary school I was introduced to Dora the Explorer. This Nickelodeon cartoon is easily recognizable as pro-Hispanic legal and illegal immigration propaganda. The creator of the show has admitted as much. More intriguing was what I was introduced to at the middle school: Wizards of Waverly Place. This Disney Channel sitcom is about a family of wizards living on Waverly Place in NYC. Here’s the kicker: they are a mixed family with a white father played by David Deluise and a Hispanic mother played by Marie Canals Barrera. Their children are older brother Justin, middle sister Alex, and youngest son Max. Justin is played by white actor David Henrie. Alex and Max are played by half Hispanic/white Selena Gomez and Jake T. Austin respectively. Both are very Hispanic looking. The thing about this set-up is that there is no mention of the fact that they are a mixed family. There is no Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner moral crusade to legitimize the fact they are a mixed family, it’s simply taken for granted.

Instead the show focuses the adventures and misadventures of the kids as they learn magic from their wizard father and later in wizard school. The obvious Harry Potter inspired scenario works extremely well. The episodes I watched with the kids had (pardon the pun) their own magic. The kids laughed at the jokes and were delighted by the spells. All the creative aspects: jokes, characters, and special effects were what they cared about. Like the creators intended the racially mixed family was taken for granted by them. Moving on to other jobs and activism I forgot about the show.

During this past summer I started watching the show on my own. Selena Gomez is a much bigger pop culture figure than she was when I was introduced to her at the end of 2008. After hearing her single “Who Says” I decided to start watching with an eye more critical from activism. Wizards of Waverly Place’s lack of overt racial politics makes its subtle ones more effective. First off all the white characters are dweebs. The white father keeps up the idiotic father motif so prevalent today. While not as bad as Peter Griffin of Family Guy or Homer Simpson of The Simpsons he is still seemingly dim-witted, clumsy, childish, and goofy. The older white brother Justin is the worst: socially inept, fashionably challenged, a tattle tail, a brown noser, and the butt of all Alex’s jokes. What about the other two kids? Little brother Max has all the typical foibles of a little brother and is for the most part harmless, a comic character but nowhere near the walking laughing stock Justin is. Now we get to the star Selena Gomez. Alex is fashionable, rebellious, often quick-witted, and spoiled (she’s daddy’s little girl). The contrast with Justin couldn’t be more clear: he’s a total loser and she’s so cool. This contrast is also clear with Alex’s best friend Harper played by white actress Jenifer Stone. Harper is the male Justin: she’s unfashionable (despite trying so hard to be), unrebellious (she’s constantly nervous of Alex’s schemes), and studious (unlike the lazy slacker Alex), in other words she’s a dork. Harper also isn’t presented as pretty as Alex with her slightly chubby baby fat. The characters present a picture of whites foolish and Hispanics stylish. But this is tempered by the fact all the characters love and support each other, making all I’ve described subtle and unconscious. Combined with the already mentioned lack of drama about being a mixed family the show effectively normalizes the Hispanization of America for kids today.

One of the most interesting things to come out of the show was in its direct to cable movie that premiered on the Disney Channel a couple months ago. The basic plot is that while on vacation in Hawaii, Alex has a fight with her mom and accidentally cast a spell so her parents never met. Now Justin and Alex must locate a secret cave on the island which contains a stone that cave reverse the spell while Max must keep their parents from meeting other people before the kids disappear (since their parents never met). The subplot of the movie is that a wizard must give up his magic powers in order to fall in love with a mortal. And this is exactly what the white wizard father does to fall in love with the non-wizard Hispanic mother. It is a perfect allegory for what is happening today: white America is giving up what makes it it in for the Hispanization of America.

Beyond Wizards of Waverly Place Selena Gomez symbolizes the Hispanization of America in pop culture in other ways. First off she is being made to represent the new girl next door. With the exception of Taylor Swift, white female pop stars are total whores. Starting with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera when I was in middle school to Katie Perry and Kesha today, the increasing whoredom of female pop stars is undeniable. Selena Gomez is different. While she is an undeniably pretty and attractive girl, her songs and image is not that of whoredom. They come off as young, lively, and girlie without descending into the snorting coke before getting banged in the bathroom stall image of Kesha. Any parents with standards of decency would rather have their daughter listen to Selena Gomez than the others. White female pop stars symbolize a decadent and dying white America whereas Selena Gomez symbolizes a young and vibrant Hispanic America.

And of course there is her relationship with Justin Bieber. They are the golden couple of teen pop today. In the minds of millions of white girls she managed to get Justin! A Hispanic girl! There must be something cool and beautiful about them! The biggest teen pop couple is a Hispanic/ white one and no one notices. Whereas still to this day black/ white couples can raise eyebrows, people don’t even bat an eyelash at a Hispanic/ white one. Is there any greater pop symbol of the Hispanization of America?

Pop culture is important and must be talked about, especially when it comes to the Hispanization of America. While I don’t think Selena Gomez is a raving La Raza type but a typical teenage girl living dreams of stardom, she is a pop symbol of the Hispanization of America.

[From "Annapolis Shooting"]

I think we can say trust in the media hit a new all time low this afternoon:

“Jarrod W. Ramos, who law enforcement sources say used a shotgun to blast his way into the Capital Gazette newsroom on Thursday, killing five people and wounding two others, had a long-running dispute with the news organization.

He had previously made “general threats” against the community newspaper company over social media, including some as recent Thursday, said William Krampf, Anne Arundel County’s acting police chief. The threats “indicated violence,” Chief Krampf said. …

His feud with The Capital, the chain’s daily newspaper, apparently began with a column in 2011 that detailed his alleged harassment of a high school classmate.”

Contrary to earlier reports, the shooting in Annapolis seems to have had nothing to do with MILO or President Trump describing the press as “the enemy of the people.”

I will reiterate what I said on Gab earlier this evening:

I’ve interacted with the press more than most people and have been smeared in countless hit pieces over the years. At the same time, I have met journalists and reporters who were fair in their articles and I can’t imagine why anyone would want to harm them. In Charlottesville, there were reporters who portrayed the events of August 12th as a “Neo-Nazi domestic terrorist attack.” There were others like Millie Weaver who were attacked by Antifa. Some of our medics treated their injuries that day.

The mainstream media is full of serial liars who are engaging in politics under the cover of journalism. This is why President Trump denounces the press as “the enemy of the American people.” These people act like a hostile elite who have nothing but contempt for ordinary Americans. I just want to stress that not every journalist is our enemy. Some local reporters are just ordinary people doing their jobs. The press needs to reflect on how they as a class have become so alienated from millions of their fellow citizens and change their irresponsible behavior before we see more days like this one.

Millions will hear this news and smile while others will not approve, but will understand the motives of Jarrod Ramos. No one celebrates school shootings while lots of people will rejoice when journalists are shot because they have watched them ruin the lives of people like Andrew Dodson. This shooting in Annapolis is a new milestone in the hatred of the press that might inspire copycats.

If you are a journalist, today was a reminder of the need to show grace and common decency to the people you cover in your stories.

[From "The Deuce and a Half is now our official “Truck of Peace”"]

We have people EVERYWHERE. Take note.

Tennessean

A sergeant in the Tennessee State Guard has been reprimanded after engaging in a conversation on social media alluding to running over anti-fascist activists with a military cargo truck.

YES! YES! YES!

The Tennessee Department of Military confirmed that Casey Gillespie, who apparently took part in the public discussion with another man on Gillespie’s personal Facebook page, remains a sergeant in the volunteer arm of the department.

As he should be. Sgt. Gillespie was obviously just referring to Tennessee’s proposed legislation SB0944:

Tennessee General Assembly

Tort Liability and Reform – As introduced, provides civil immunity for the driver of an automobile who injures a protester who is blocking traffic in a public right-of-way if the driver was exercising due care. – Amends TCA Title 19; Title 20; Title 29, Chapter 34; Title 54 and Title 55.

Currently, SB 944 is awaiting the approval of the Senate Judiciary Committee. It is the urgent wish of this author that the State Bill pass immediately before the next antifa rally.

[...]

It is the sincere wish of this author that all Tennessee State Guardsmen travel in Deuce and a Half Trucks at all times. You never know when antifa might try to, “block traffic in a public right-of-way.”

Antifa trans-ponies better stick to the sidewalks lol,

[From "“Mad Cuck” Mattis: DACA Soldiers And Veterans Will Be Never Be Subject To Deportation"]

We are now officially at the same level as the Roman Empire in its death spiral – hiring and protecting barbarian soldiers at the expense of the native population.

The difference lies in the fact that in Rome’s case, the barbarians were mainly of White Nordic stock that partially reversed the results of centuries of multicultural decadence.

Not so much here in America, though…

Military Times

The approximately 800 service members whose military service was put in limbo by President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program will not be deported, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday.

Congress has been at an impasse over DACA, which provides a protected status for some younger undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.

Mattis told reporters Thursday that he has finalized an agreement with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to put the military’s ”Dreamers” in a protected status.

“Anyone who is in the delayed enlistment program, in other words they are already signed up and they are waiting to go into boot camp, anyone on active duty and anyone in the active reserves and anyone with an honorable discharge is, right now, except for two possible exceptions, they will not be subject to any kind of deportation.”

The exceptions are convictions for severe felonies like rape and murder, and those who are already judicially-ordered to be deported (usually after convictions for severe felonies).

…

“They’re protected,” Mattis said.

He also said he thinks the program will live on.

“I think that it is not coming to an end right now either,” Mattis said. “You can sign up right now, as I understand.”

Many of us voted for Trump with dreams of a heavily-armed Deportation Force flashing through our minds.

The problem lies in the fact that for all intents and purposes, the real #MAGA is going to involve the Dreamer Beaners – millions of them, their children, and a nice chain of migrants that won’t stop until at least 2027.
