I’ve spent the last few hours watching the live stream of the Freedom Action Conference in Pennsylvania. Tea Party supporters from across America have gathered in Valley Forge to “regroup and train for the fight ahead.”
The historical symbolism being invoked here is obvious. Valley Forge is where the tattered remnants of the Continental Army under the leadership of George Washington camped in the winter of 1777/1778 to rebuild their strength. It was an ordeal that separated the true patriots of the American Revolution from their fair weather friends.
Watching the live stream of the Freedom Action Conference, it is clear that the Tea Party sees itself as being in a similar dire predicament. They see themselves as the beleaguered remnants of a shattered American army that is losing a war for freedom. The enemy has captured the capitol and driven the “Real America” from the seat of power.
Times are hard.
Like the Continental Army at Valley Forge, the Tea Party is determined to weather the storm and strike a decisive blow for freedom. Once the threat to our independence is eliminated, “Real America” will be restored to its former exalted position in Washington.
The psychodrama on display here speaks volumes about the existential crisis of White America and the direction it is ultimately headed. If the Tea Party is the Continental Army, then Barack Obama is a tyrant like King George III, and the traitors (i.e., progressives, globalists, socialists) are the Red Coats who must be driven from their positions of power.
Watching this conference, I am left with the unmistakable impression that the Tea Party is starting to think of its historical situation in revolutionary terms. The term “Second American Revolution” is becoming popular in these circles. It was thrown out to the audience several times this afternoon to a chorus of applause.
What is the “Second American Revolution”?
It is a revolt of the Reds against the Blues, the “Country Class” against the “Political Class,” the “natural libertarians” against the “cognitive elite.” The Reds are dreaming of throwing off the heavy yoke of tyranny.
This is serious business. It is not idle talk.
The Reds have spent the afternoon defining the Blue enemy and describing in elaborate detail their preferred method of resistance:
It involves capturing control of state and local government, asserting state sovereignty, nullification of federal laws, empowering sheriffs to arrest federal officials, forcing state legislators to swear oaths of loyalty to the people, massive resistance, setting up state escrow accounts and refusing to hand over federal tax dollars.
The most popular method of resistance seems to be “building a wall” around the Second Amendment. It is necessary to protect the Second Amendment at all costs, not because a gun owner needs an AK-47 to shoot a deer or kill a turkey for Thanksgiving, but because the First Amendment might prove insufficient to defend “Real America” from the onslaught of globalist tyranny.
Undoubtedly, there will be readers of Occidental Dissent who after reading this article will point out in the comments that Reds vs. Blues isn’t exactly Whites vs. Jews, and that such a violent revolution, if it did ever did come, wouldn’t satisfy their refined tastes.
This sort of fantasist retardation has crippled the pro-White movement in America and left it utterly oblivious and unprepared to take advantage of impending tsunami of White anger that will be unleashed against the status quo.
If 95% of Jews are on the Blue side and 75% of Whites are on the Red side, and the Reds are pushed to the breaking point and carry out their threat of a “Second American Revolution” against the Blues, what does it matter if the Jew goes unnamed, but finds himself financially ruined and thrown out of power?
If such a crisis ever did come, it would so destabilize the status quo that the taboos against White racial consciousness would be shaken to their foundations. It would create the historical opportunity the pro-White movement needs to break into the mainstream.
Of course such a scenario cannot be guaranteed. However, I would argue that it would be far more likely to happen in the aforesaid conditions and that we should use every ounce of our influence to bring those conditions about as they would work to our advantage.
The actions described above are precisely the ones that led to the American Revolution. Before there was a Revolution, there were uppity Bostonians, throwing tea into Massachusetts Bay and provoking the Coercive Acts. Moderates were forced to choose sides. When that happens, people naturally tend to side with their own, as John Adams sided with Sam Adams.
In the Civil War, William Lowndes Yancey precipitated a Southern revolution by splitting the Democratic Party in 1860 over an abstraction about squatter sovereignty. This led directly to Lincoln’s election and the secession of South Carolina.
Alabama and Mississippi sided with South Carolina. Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas sided with Alabama and Mississippi. When Lincoln called for troops to suppress the Confederacy, the Upper South left the Union.
Moral of the story: in 1850, only a thwarted radical minority dreamed of a Southern Confederacy, but the logic of kinship of self-interest worked its magic in the right historical conditions.
If the Tea Party were to provoke a “Second American Revolution,” even an explicitly anti-racist one in rhetoric, Americans would invariably choose sides in such a polarized environment. Jews will side with Jews. Blacks will side with Blacks. Hispanics will side with Hispanics … against Whites who alone will comprise the other side.
That’s exactly what this country needs. It is also why I will be tuning in tomorrow!
