Update: Matt Parrott no longer endorses this message
Hunter’s recent post, “Proud to be an American?“, offers a damning list of disgraceful developments in this country. The article is correct in its presentation of facts. I don’t take issue with the proposition that this government has become a cesspit of corruption, turning against the posterity for which it was created. But I strongly object to an assumption the article is based on, that this government is “America”. No. We are America! While our government has been controlled by foreign and anti-American oligarchies for decades, there’s a refreshing dimension to the steady replacement of American traitors like Justice Souter and President Dubya with outright foreigners like Elena Kagan and Barack Obama – it’s obvious that this government isn’t run by Americans. It’s not an American government.
Barack Obama can tell the entire world that America belongs to his ruling regime, that it doesn’t spill forth from the fountainhead of American blood and soil. He can tell millions of gullible Americans. But all he really has is a teetering and unstable regime comprised of a motley coalition of people and groups who are openly hostile to everything that the word America represents. Tomorrow I’ll enjoy cooking out with my White American family, in a Midwestern small town, a town that Malcolm X himself immortalized in his autobiography as “White Town”. Barack Obama will spend tomorrow surrounded by foreign dignitaries, Jewish power brokers, and anti-White race hustlers.
Besides, Barack Obama wasn’t actually even born in America…
…I don’t consider Hawaii to be the real America.
One of the most painful aspects of learning about the lead-up to World War II is seeing how the true American patriots like Father Coughlin and Charles Lindbergh allowed themselves to be triangulated as anti-Americans by foreigners scheming to drag America into a fratricidal bloodbath. Yet we Middle American radicals keep letting this happen. In our most recent episode of Jews plotting to drag us into a war, we actually had a Jew, a Canadian Jew at that, accuse us all of being “Unpatriotic Conservatives” in W.F. Buckley’s flagship “conservative” National Review. F*** him.
I understand where Hunter is coming from, but emphatically refuse to accept the defeat implied by taking this word, “America”, and this flag, the American flag, and handing them over to these usurpers. Perhaps it’s easier for a Southerner to think this way, having a Confederate heritage to fall back on. As a Midwesterner, one whose pioneer forefathers have been here since this nation’s founding, I don’t know anything else. I don’t have any other identity. I’ll gladly support secession if that’s the best way to preserve my ethnonational identity – but that identity is integrally American.
I’m far from jingoistic, and I’m the first to assert that our founding fathers made some grave errors in establishing this country that must be corrected. I firmly believe that Franklin, Washington, and Jefferson would, if they sprang out of one of Glenn Beck’s crazed tea party fantasies, agree with me. They would recognize this regime as both alien and tyrannical. They would recognize that they were wrong in several ways, ways that have ultimately resulted in their Constitution hanging by a thread and their progeny spiraling into oblivion.
As I sit in a flimsy lawn chair tomorrow, surrounded by real Americans, watching the fireworks overhead, I’ll be bursting with pride to be an American. To be an American is to belong to the same people who fought every step of the way into this Continent, whose industriousness created the single greatest explosion of middle class prosperity in human history, and whose creativity both captivated the world and propelled us to new ones. This inheritance is, regardless of what that arrogant African blowhard would have you believe, a matter of blood and birth.
