OD returns with boots on the ground …
I spent the afternoon with H. Rock White and Pip Pockets on a scouting mission deep into the region which I have begun to refer to as the “Southern Homeland.” We were attracted to the small town of Big Island, VA by an advertisement we heard on the radio about the Sedalia Center’s 12th Annual Celtic Festival.
It seemed like a good occasion to mingle with wholesome Anglo-Celtic mountain folk and gauge the implicit whiteness of the area. Now that I am home, I can report that I didn’t see a single negro in the crowd, with the exception of a kind employee who really doesn’t count. I saw one Indian or Hispanic. We got him on video.
As is always the case, we had a good time during our reconnaissance mission into the Blue Ridge Mountains. Pip Pockets enjoyed a plate of fish and chips. I ate a Celtic sausage. H. Rock White attempted (unsuccessfully) to sample some whiskey, but we arrived too late.
We didn’t go to this event to cause a disruption or promote an ideology. We need more of these cultural events where White people – in particular, White families – can simply enjoy the company of other White people, celebrate their heritage, and nurture a positive sense of identity. White Nationalism needs to get away from the negative image that everything we do is targeted against others. The whole purpose of carving out a White ethnostate in North America is to provide a secure location for our national, racial, and cultural rebirth as a people.
It was heartening to see all the Celtic flags flying against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Men wore Scottish kilts. Women dressed in folkish dresses. I saw one guy dressed as a Medieval English soldier. Vendors were selling Gadsden, Irish, Welsh, and Confederate flags. Celtic crosses were on sale. There were booths that allowed attendees to research their Celtic ancestry and trace their roots back to specific parts of Ireland and Britain.
I had an interesting conversation with one knowledgeable gentleman about Medieval history and the Kingdom of Asturias in particular. He was eager to tell me about his Spanish Celtic ancestry. It is always a pleasure to converse with White Americans who have a sense of pride in their roots. These people tend to be instinctive nationalists.
I’m dumbfounded why we seem unable to host positive events like these. If all these White Nationalists who spend hours arguing on the internet about the Third Reich would invest a fraction of their time hosting a local gun show, book club, cultural festival, or a tour of local historical sites, it would have a huge impact. Pro-Whites wouldn’t feel so helpless or cynical about their country and its fate.
This is a subject worth revisiting.
