Richard Hoste of HBD Books has a new interview with John Derbyshire that briefly touches upon White Nationalism. According to Derbyshire, he would like to live in an America where White Nationalism is rendered unnecessary because 1.) minority groups have forsaken identity politics, 2.) Whites have a “big, fat, and permanent majority,” and 3.) Whites have finally regained their cultural confidence.
This is the same bill of goods that Lawrence Auster has been trying to sell us on for years. The toothpaste is already out of the tube. In 2008, the Census Bureau found that nearly half of American children under the age of 5 are non-White. Congress threatens us every year with amnesty for illegal aliens and a drastic expansion of legal immigration. Having lost the “Culture War,” the conservative movement is afraid/ashamed of its own ‘implicit whiteness’ and positively balks at defending White racial interests. These worms now scamper about looking for every fresh non-White face they can find to represent them.
What incentive (financial, political, cultural) do minority groups have to give up racial consciousness and identity politics? What incentive does our Jewish cultural elite have to stop trashing White culture and history? What incentive does the business community and ethnic activist groups have to stop pushing for mass immigration from the Third World? None whatsoever.
The only conceivable force which could possibly rehabilitate a positive sense of White racial identity, instill enough fear into elite Jews to give up anti-White race baiting, and pressure non-White activist groups into making historic concessions … is a burgeoning and mature White Nationalist movement that has the support of millions of angry White men. Such a mass movement would have to be explicitly identitarian. It would be based less on science than on simmering racial grievances.
Once the genie is let out of that bottle, I seriously doubt it will stop at the racial minimum that John Derbyshire and Lawrence Auster seem to desire. The activist vanguard won’t be content to allow the chastised old gang to continue to lord over us with all their status, wealth, and privileges intact. After having come so far, a triumphant White Nationalist movement won’t plant its flag on top of a simmering racial volcano that could explode upon us at any moment. We’re not conservatives in outlook.
Jared Taylor has done a lot of fine work. In the 1990′s, he stepped into a vacuum and created a space in the ‘White Wing’ for disillusioned, middle class conservatives who otherwise would have been repelled by the existing vanguardist fringe scene. By the 2000′s, the oldline White Supremacists were dying off and fading into history. ‘White Nationalism’ had emerged as its rhetorical successor and was attracting a different breed of recruit among alienated, intelligent, college educated Gen X’ers and Gen Y’ers. Taylor’s legacy as a major transitional figure in this gestational period is secure. But unlike Derbyshire, I don’t think “cloning” Jared is the way forward. Perhaps we ought to look further back into history.
Moving into the 2010′s and 2020′s, the Baby Boomer fight to influence national policy and conserve the historic American nation (through the conservative movement and the GOP as its vehicle) has been lost. With Barack Obama’s election as President of the United States and Sonia Sotomayor’s appointment to the Supreme Court, the much anticipated era of White dispossession is finally at hand and starting to accelerate. The last remaining recourse available to Whites is separate state action against the federal government.
Let the Feds use their mailed fist to coerce a Montana, Alabama or South Carolina into enforcing some hideous anti-White national policy. Have them send in the troops to depose a sitting Governor and haul him away in handcuffs. That would make for some wonderful television. Imagine what William Lowndes Yancey or Robert Barnwell Rhett could have done with the modern mass media.
