[From "Political Parties and Counter-Revolutions"]
The fiery piece published by Padraig Martin on June 19th [Submitter's note: see here] inspires a fire unkindled in the Southern heart for a number of generations. A short but sweet entry, his essays proposes the long overdue idea of walking away from the Republican Party. Seemingly preposterous on the surface to cede political power to the Left, this could facilitate a monumental political move if undertaken correctly. The issue then asserts itself: Southerners simply have no idea how to foment a rightwing, political, and cultural counter-revolution anymore. This short piece provides an answer to Padraig’s rallying cry to leave the Republican Party and also addresses the idea of how the Right should respond to the leftist overthrow of Southern society within the modern age.
Unlike our current predicament, where leftwing radicals are actually engaging in revolutionary violence and with widespread impunity, it must be made clear that it is not the intention of this article to inspire or condone violence. Rather, that peaceful and legal counter-revolutionary defenses and processes must be implemented, and with great haste. Rightwing dissident literature does not have the luxury of an impartial review.
Every vacuum must be filled. Leaving the GOP will create a vacuum and genuine conservatives need a party to insert political capital and energy into. This necessitates the formation of a new party, especially in Dixie. The issue facing third parties is twofold: everybody still wants to cling onto political power they fool themselves into believing they have by voting Republican, as well as the fact third parties aim far too high. A third party must focus on local elections and aspire no further than state level elections.
One particular overthrow of a widespread leftist regime took place during the 1870’s. Every Southern state, via a myriad of means, overthrew the Radicals which had oppressed them politically since the passage of the Reconstruction Acts of 1867. The *only* way they managed to do this was through the *establishment of parallel institutions,* not simply voting at the ballot box. The counter-revolutions took place at local levels and prepared for gubernatorial elections, not presidential ones. This not only necessitates the establishment of a new party but the establishment of interconnections among those of conservative persuasion, while excluding malicious and volatile actors. This means establishing Orania, South Africa influenced colonies in Dixie and ensuring members of the aforementioned new party procure positions within the political system at the local level. Other noteworthy rightwing revolutions were the Wilmington Insurrection of 1898 and the Red Summer of 1919.
Southerners have obsessed over voting for Republican presidential candidates in order to prevent the lesser of two evils from occupying the imperial office since the establishment of the States’ Rights Party in 1948, a party which would have found great success at the local level had it stuck around after the presidential election of that year. A vote for evil is still a vote for evil. Recent events have necessitated third party establishment. Yes, these supposed parallel institutions need monetary funding, but that has not stopped them from taking place in the past in grave situations. It is time not only to leave the GOP but to also build something to replace it for our people.
