The Endgame

Editor’s Note: I wrote this article in all of its essentials on November 29, 2012. It is the closest thing I have published to a synopsis of the endgame that I envision. This is essentially what I told Professor Thomas Main in the interview I did with him on February 2nd.

Our Vision

I’m an ethnonationalist.

I believe that ethnicity is a more powerful bond than race. I want a free and independent Republic of Dixie, an Anglo-Celtic nation-state like Hungary or Poland carved out of the wreckage of the United States, that is based on blood, soil, culture, and history, not on failed liberal abstractions.

There are other ethnonationalist separatist movements in Europe and North America that fall into the same category: Québec in Canada, Flanders in Belgium, Scotland in the United Kingdom, Catalonia and the Basque Country in Spain, and Padania in Italy. Ireland, Croatia, Norway, Hungary, Greece, and Ukraine have already succeeded in joining the European family of nations.

Like the Catalans or Québécois, Southern Whites are a distinct ethnic group within America. Dixie is a nation within the United States that manifests itself in every presidential election, every major vote in Congress, the U.S. Census, and the maps of cultural geographers.

The Republic of Dixie would include the 11 states of the ex-Confederacy, West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Missouri. In a worst case scenario, we might may have to cede Maryland, the Mexican border counties in Texas, the Washington Metro Area in Northern Virginia, and South Florida.

The international border between the Republic of Dixie and the United States would start at the Atlantic, run underneath the NOVA counties in Virginia before moving up toward the Shenandoah Valley, it would wrap around West Virginia excluding the Northern Panhandle, follow the Ohio River around Kentucky, it would wrap and Missouri and Oklahoma before sweeping around the New Mexico border and down through the Anglo-Hispanic ethnic fault line in South Texas toward the Gulf of Mexico.

There are some important differences between the Republic of Dixie and the White Republic envisioned by the White Nationalists:

  • Dixie is a real nation. Southern Whites are an ethnic group. This is a place that exists in the real world. It is not an abstraction or a proposition nation. It has a name and already exists in the minds of the people. It is not a vague fantasy that exists only in the minds of alienated intellectuals scattered across a continent.
  • Dixie has all the ingredients of an independent nation: a common ethnicity, a common culture, a common ideological outlook, and a common history. White Nationalism is based on a racial identity and racial grievances. Simply put, there is more glue to Southern Nationalism, a greater solidarity because there is more homogeneity, which means there are fewer areas for conflict and division.
  • Dixie has existed as an independent nation in the past: the Confederate States of America. There has been an earthquake along that sectional fault line before which destroyed the Union. It is still to this day the most likely spot where the Union would be cleaved in two.
  • Southern Nationalism is a type of European-style ethnonationalism. White Nationalism is a reiteration of Americanism. There has already been at least one White Republic, the United States until 1861, and it failed due to ethnic and cultural divisions among White Americans.

With the exception of Harold Covington, White Nationalists can’t tell you the name of their proposed nation, where it would be located in the real world, what ethnicity would be the basis of their White ethnostate, or how their White Republic would be created. After thirty years of talking about creating a White Republic, these basic questions have yet to be answered.

Golden Dawn, for example, can answer all of these questions: Greece, Greece, the Greeks, taking over the government. The Québécois can answer all of those questions: Québec, Québec, the Québécois, taking over the government and seceding from Canada. The Catalans have the same answers: Catalonia, Catalonia, the Catalans, taking over the government and seceding from Spain.

What about Southern Nationalists? Basically, we have the same answers as the Scots, Québécois, the Greeks, and the Catalans: Dixie is our nation, it is ethnocultural unit within the American South, taking over the Southern states, seceding from the United States and creating the Republic of Dixie.

Our Strategy – Working Within The System

I will say at the outset that we believe reforming the system is impossible.

In the United States, we live under a system of representative government. Southern Nationalists have no objection in principle to the system of representative government – it works in homogeneous countries, but doesn’t work in heterogeneous ones. America is a failure as a nation and there is no political solution but secession and independence to that problem.

Americans no longer share a common race, a common ethnicity, a common culture, a common religion, a common history, or a common philosophical worldview. As America becomes ever more “diverse,” we are finding out that we have less and less in common with other “Americans,” and truth be told, if this were a marriage, we would have gotten a divorce a long time ago.

White Southerners are a permanent minority within the Union. We are a permanent minority in a system based on majority rule. In 2008 and 2012, White Southerners voted against Barack Obama in overwhelming numbers, but Obama’s election and reelection only proved the futility of trying to reform a system in which we are a hopelessly outnumbered ethnic and cultural minority.

The consolidated despotism that we are living under today under Obama will only get worse under his successors as changing racial and cultural demographics continue to erode our political power. Obama’s election has proven that Democrats can write off Southern Whites and still win the White House. The Democratic media no longer even tries to hide its racial and cultural contempt for White Southerners. The Democrats have a road to 270 electoral votes without us.

So what are our options?

The first option is submission. We can submit to being ruled indefinitely by a coalition of Yankees and Jews and “people of color.” We can lose our freedom. We can lose our culture. In the long run, we can allow this “majority” of racial, ethnic, and cultural aliens to dominate and plunder our descendants.

The second option is delusion. We can delude ourselves into believing that everything will be fine and that we can run Marco Rubio in 2016 and win over legions of budding “black conservatives” and “Hispanic conservatives.” The unprecedented level of moral cowardice on display at sites like RedState.com ensures that self delusion will win the day for at least one more election cycle.

The third option is secession. We can seize power in the Southern states, secede from the Union, and form our own nation-state, the Republic of Dixie. In this scenario, we will have a fighting chance to preserve our way of life, and there is already a grassroots movement in this direction in Texas and the rest of Dixie.

The fourth option is revolution. If our backs are firmly pressed against the wall, armed revolution might become the only realistic way to preserve our way of life. See the White Man’s Revolution of 1876 in South Carolina which was an example of such a rebellion.

The fifth option is emigration. We can move to some other country. Don’t make me laugh with suggestions of moving to the Pacific Northwest. The same despotism that exists here can be found there as well. If Mississippi or Alabama can’t be pushed to resistance, there is no hope at all for Washington or Oregon where the White population is much more liberal than it is here.

Secession is our first choice.

We want to peacefully secede from the United States like Ukraine and Georgia seceded from the Soviet Union or Czechoslovakia broke apart in the Velvet Divorce. In Great Britain and Canada, Scotland and Québec have been given referendums to secede, Puerto Rico recently had a referendum on joining the United States, and Catalonia will soon be holding a referendum on secession from Spain.

In order to bring about disunion, we are supportive of “working within the system” – by that we mean at the state level, and only within the South – in order to exacerbate sectional polarization, galvanize our supporters, and advance the cause of secession with the ultimate objective in mind of calling a state convention in every Southern state to vote on the dissolution of this Union.

As we have already seen, our fellow secessionists in Europe and Canada are “working within the system” and they are way ahead of us: the Parti Québécois in Québec, the Scottish National Party in Scotland, the Convergence and Union Party (CiU) in Catalonia, Golden Dawn in Greece, and Vlaams Belang in Belgium. We are a similar ethnonationalist independence movement.

In the United States, we don’t have a parliamentary system of government and couldn’t hope to reproduce those results with a third party in the South, but it might be possible for Southern Whites to imitate and invert the racial and ideological solidarity of the blacks and Hispanics within the Democratic Party and form a Southern Nationalist Caucus within the Republican Party in the Southern state legislatures.

The future of the Republican Party is unclear at this moment. Whatever its fate, the goal of the Southern Nationalist Caucus should be to split the Republican Party along sectional lines to precipitate the dissolution of the Union. Now that the GOP is pretty much dead as a viable national party, I imagine this will become more feasible moving forward.

Our Strategy – Christianity and Conservatism

Southern Nationalists are “mainstreamers.”

By that I mean our strategy is based on winning over our own people to the cause of secession or closing the gap between the Southern Nationalist vanguard and the White Southern masses until the need to secede from this despotic government becomes so obvious that it is accepted as common sense.

In this area, we are counting on the fecklessness of Conservatism, Inc., the failure of the Tea Party to “Take Back America,” the impotence of the national GOP, and the triumphalism and hubris of the minority-majority and their cheerleaders in the mainstream media to disillusion and alienate the average White Southern male and thereby sow the seeds of disunion.

We are under no illusions that the South is going to cease to be Christian and conservative and embrace White Nationalism and atheism after rejecting the values it has held for almost four centuries.

It is conceivable though that Southerners might be provoked to revolt in defense of the Southern way of life: a conservative revolution like the one launched in 1861 against a hated, despotic central government and the economic ruin and godless, degenerate Eastern culture that it seeks to impose on Dixie through its sectional control of the Federal Leviathan.

As White Southerners lose power at the national level, they will predictably seek empowerment at the state level. When it finally becomes clear that White Southerners have permanently lost power within the minority-majority United States, the allure of White male empowerment through secession will become an irresistible temptation.

Alex Linder has proposed attacking the Christians and conservatives. While nothing would give Southern Nationalists greater pleasure than witnessing the demise of bloodsucking parasites like Conservatism, Inc., the Republican Party or the hucksters who are destroying the Southern Christianity, who we agree can and should be attacked, the following demographic facts must be kept in mind:

Self-Identified Ideology By State

Conservatives are predominant in every Southern state. These numbers also mask the true level of White Southern conservatism by including blacks and Hispanics in the poll:

Mississippi – 53.4%
Alabama – 49.8%
Louisiana – 49.5%
Arkansas – 47.9%
Oklahoma – 47.4%
Tennessee – 45.5%
Texas – 44.8%
West Virginia – 44.6%
South Carolina – 44.6%
Georgia – 43.9%
Missouri – 43.5%
North Carolina – 43.2%
Kentucky – 42.7%
Virginia – 41.3%
Florida – 39.9%

There is no road to secession or revolution in Dixie that doesn’t go through winning over and radicalizing the White conservative majority.

Religiosity By State

I shouldn’t have to explain why attacking Christianity and making atheism a litmus test is a non-starter in the Bible Belt. These numbers also mask the true level of White Southern religiosity by including blacks and Hispanics in the poll:

Mississippi – 59% (very religious), 11% (non-religious)
Alabama – 56% (very religious), 16% (non-religious)
Louisiana – 54% (very religious), 16% (non-religious)
Arkansas – 54% (very religious), 19% (non-religious)
South Carolina – 54% (very religious), 18% (non-religious)
Tennessee – 52% (very religious), 18% (non-religious)
North Carolina – 50% (very religious), 21% (non-religious)
Georgia – 48% (very religious), 20% (non-religious)
Oklahoma – 48% (very religious), 23% (non-religious)
Texas – 47% (very religious), 22% (non-religious)
Kentucky – 47% (very religious), 24% (non-religious)
Missouri – 44% (very religious), 28% (non-religious)
West Virginia – 43% (very religious), 26% (non-religious)
Virginia – 42% (very religious), 27% (non-religious)
Florida – 39% (very religious), 31% (non-religious)

There is no path to secession or revolution in Dixie either that doesn’t go straight through the “very religious” and “moderately religious” who make up the Republican base.

Is it even desirable to encourage atheism? In Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida, 64% of voters64% of voters, and 72% of voters respectively who “never” attend religious services voted for Obama.

In Wisconsin, 71% of White atheists voted for Obama. In Ohio, 62% of White atheists voted for Obama. In Michigan, 76% of White atheists voted for Obama. In Pennsylvania, 68% of White atheists voted for Obama. Atheists are an extremely left leaning group.

In the 2012 election, Barack Obama won 69% of the Jewish vote and 70% of the “religiously unaffiliated” nationwide. If the goal is to transform Whites into Jews, then obviously promoting atheism is the way to go because there is no measurable difference between Jews and White atheist in their political preferences.

Our Strategy – The Message

Southern Nationalists are ethnonationalists who seek a free and independent Dixie.

We have already established the importance of working within the system like our counterparts in Canada, Belgium, Spain, and the UK to dissolve the Union. We have established that secession requires winning over Christians and conservatives. We have established the importance of closing the gap between the Southern Nationalist vanguard and the Southern White masses.

In order to succeed, we will need a simple winning message that resonates with our target audience. I think the message should be that Christianity and conservatism are doomed within the United States, we live under a totally consolidated and unrepresentative federal government with unlimited powers, and the preservation of the Union puts us on a fiscally unsustainable course that will inevitably destroy our economy. The South should be encouraged to revolt in defense of its own values and prosperity. It must be convinced that secession is the only way to preserve the Southern way of life and actualize those values.

In Catalonia, Catalan secessionists have a simple message that the newly rebranded OD will be experimenting with next year: seceding from Spain is necessary to preserve Catalan culture and Madrid has mismanaged Catalonia’s economy by taxing productive Catalans and redistributing their wealth to indolent Andalusians.

It is already clear that fiscal considerations over America’s soaring national debt and unsustainable government programs – such as the “takers” who got the “Obama phone” from the taxes of the “makers” – are weighing heavily on the minds of the White Southerners who are flirting with secession. We need to spend a lot more time responding to these cultural and economic anxieties.

Our Strategy – Talking Points

The Southern Nationalist message relies heavily on our most valuable asset: the truth.

We don’t have the money of Conservatism, Inc. or the media power to contend for the White House, but we can give White Southerners an honest assessment of their situation, we can prod them to revolt in defense of their own self avowed values, and we can excite their imaginations with the tantalizing possibility of how empowering it would be to follow their values to their logical conclusion and to assert their right to rid themselves of the ruling class in Washington.

Here are some talking points that advance this message:

1.) We agree with Ron Paul that the Constitution has failed and the federal government has become a consolidated despotism.

2.) Secession is the ultimate check on the growth of the federal government.

3.) America has failed as a nation. There is no political cure for a decompiled culture.

4.) White Southerners are an object of ridicule in America’s national culture. See “Django Unchained,” “Rosewood,” “Mississippi Burning,” “Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter,” “Lincoln,” and “Deliverance.”

5.) White Southerners are a degraded and humiliated minority within the Union. See the Susan Rice nomination in which the Democratic media recently told White Southern men that it wasn’t their place to question an African-American women.

6.) Christianity has no future in the United States.

7.) Conservatives tried to “Take Back America” and failed. Dixie is not synonymous with America.

8.) Conservatism is dead in America except as a regional philosophy.

9.) America has promoted secession everywhere from South Vietnam, South Korea, South Sudan, Kosovo, Austria, Taiwan, Ukraine, Georgia, the Baltic States, Panama, East Timor, and Ireland to advance its own interests.

10.) America is becoming California. The financial collapse of California will herald the financial collapse of the United States.

11.) The blacks were given their chance. We tried for fifty years to create a “post-racial, colorblind society.” Obama’s reelection on the basis of ZANU-PF-style explicit appeals to class warfare and racial tribalism have closed the book on “MLK’s Dream” and replaced it with “Get Whitey.”

12.) We waged a “War on Poverty” for 50 years and poverty whipped us.

13.) China hasn’t used violence against Taiwan. Russia hasn’t used violence against Ukraine and Georgia. Even North Korea has restrained itself from attacking South Korea. The United States should live up to the standards of North Korea and allow Texas to peacefully secede from the Union.

14.) If you can’t leave, you aren’t free.

15.) The United States is anti-White and anti-Southern.

These are just a few examples that immediately come to mind. Every single one of these talking points has the benefit of being true. The goal of our strategy is to hammer away at these talking points until they are accepted as common sense and disunion is accepted as the only way to preserve the Southern way of life.

Our Strategy – Metapolitics

Southern Nationalists have no objection to “metapolitics.”

Unlike White Nationalists, Southern Nationalists can point to multiple successful examples of just such a metapolitical struggle in the Lower South:

“This idea, though not incorporated in the constitution, was the prevailing idea at that time. The constitution, it is true, secured every essential guarantee to the institution while it should last, and hence no argument can be justly urged against the constitutional guarantees thus secured, because of the common sentiment of the day. Those ideas, however, were fundamentally wrong. They rested upon the assumption of the equality of races. This was an error. It was a sandy foundation, and the government built upon it fell when the “storm came and the wind blew.”

Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth. This truth has been slow in the process of its development, like all other truths in the various departments of science. It has been so even amongst us. Many who hear me, perhaps, can recollect well, that this truth was not generally admitted, even within their day. The errors of the past generation still clung to many as late as twenty years ago.”
– Alexander Stephens, Cornerstone Speech, March 21, 1861

There is a myth on the internet based largely on stereotypes and ignorance that the South is anti-intellectual or completely devoid of an intellectual culture. In reality, the Union was shattered precisely on the finer points of Stephen Douglas’s abstract constitutional theory of squatter sovereignty, and men like Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens left behind huge constitutional treatises for posterity.

Even beyond Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens, these issues were hashed out by the secessionist vanguard in journals like the Southern Quarterly Review, the Southern Literary Messenger, and DeBow’s Review for a decade prior to secession and these ideas were circulated to the masses at the popular level in broadsides in newspapers like the Spirit of the South or Rhett’s Charleston Mercury.

OD spotlighted a fraction of this material during Confederate History Month 2012:

“The hour of that hybrid thing, a democratic republic, for the government of two different races, has passed away forever, and we must now direct our attention to those ethnological facts, from out of which the next government is to flow. …

“The peculiar form of government, under which we have for many years been living – call it by what name we may, whether a democracy or a republic – has been well calculated to demoralize, to some extent, the native, high character, of the South, and to vitiate its progress in statesmanship. There has been too much individual freedom, license rather, conferred upon the masses, through the agency of which fact, the lighter and less worthy material of society has floated to the surface. Men of actual merit, who are generally less adapted to popular approbation, have been compelled to come with their opinions and claims before the same volatile tribunal, with the worthless and flippant demagogue; and they, too, as far as was possible for them to do so, have been compelled to resort to the same vitiated means of success.”

In my reviews of Elizabeth Varon’s Disunion! The Coming of the American Civil War, 1789-1859, Paul Quigley’s Shifting Grounds: Nationalism & the American South, 1848-1865, and William Freehling’s The Road to Disunion, Secessionists Triumphant, 1854-1861, I discussed the success of the Confederacy’s “metapolitical revolution” in the 1850s from the eclipse of American nationalism in the Lower South to the emergence of Southern ethnonationalism in the 1850s to the hardening of racial attitudes mentioned by Alexander Stephens and to John C. Calhoun’s absolutely pivotal “mainstreaming” of secession and the compact theory of government in the 1830s and 1840s.

These issues are discussed in great detail in books like Drew Gilpin Faust’s A Sacred Circle: The Dilemma of the Intellectual in the Old South, 1840-1860 and Michael O’Brien’s massive Conjectures of Order: Intellectual Life in the American South, 1840 to 1860.

The ethnocultural division between Southern Whites and Yankees, which I described at the outset of this essay, was pioneered and discussed in elaborate detail in the years leading up to the War Between the States in articles like “Southern Civilization, or the Norman in America”:

“But the Roundhead, at once a religious fanatic and a political agitator and reformer, could conceive of no government but the rule of the Saints, and form no other idea of the principles of civil liberty than what the levelling philosophy of the covenant taught. A bigot in faith and an idealist in speculation, his sentiments were violent and his convictions impracticable. A visionary from principle and a revolutionist from interest, his prejudices allowed no compromise, while his passions fed equally the flame of his cupidity and ambition. Austere in his morals and inflexible in his principles, he set up his own conduct as the standard of right, and sought to dictate the opinions and control the convictions of others. Rude in his manners and morose in his disposition, he practiced the profoundest dissimulation, while attaining credit for sincerity, and concealed his real character and designs under the cloak of hypocrisy. . . .

Opposite under the banner of the king, stood the Cavalier – the builder, the social architect, the institutionalist, the conservator – the advocate of rational liberty and the supporter of authority, as against the licentiousness and morbid impulse of unregulated passion and unenlightened sentiment. No idealist, enthusiast or speculative system-builder, upheaving ancient landmarks and overthrowing venerable monuments; but a realist, a practical and enlightened utilitarian, bowing to the authority of experience and acknowledging the supremacy of ideas, forms and institutions that had received the hallowing sanction of time . An institutor by genius and a ruler by race, his pride was at once the sword of his most eminent virtues and greatest weaknesses, while honor was the touchstone of his character. Chivalrous in sentiment and magnanimous in deed, glory was his ambition, and loyalty the inspirer of his every thought, impulse and action. Elevated in his ideas and tolerant in his views, his selfishness was vicarious and his very faults wore the semblance of virtue. Unyielding in his principles, but compromising in his opinions, his conduct was governed more by sentiment than reflection, and more by association than either. Courtly in his manners and splendid in his tastes, a knightly generosity he practiced even toward his foes, and never lost his faculties in volumptuousness. Without being an abject advocate of passive obedience or a supporter of arbitrary power, he yet took ground against the revolutionary party, not as an enemy to liberal institutions or a well-regulated liberty: but, discovering in the doctrines and principles of the revolution a greater danger to the social and political system than from the alleged existing abuses, he preferred yielding his loyalty rather to institutions than abstractions, and felt it a duty to attempt to quench the lights of the incendiary philosophy, whose torch had been applied to the noblest monuments of civil wisdom yet erected by the genius of man …”

Southern Nationalists have a great advantage in the area of metapolitics. Ultimately, all we are doing is reacquainting White Southern conservatives with their own tradition and cultural inheritance, the Cavalier ideal, which unconsciously informs their value system and actions anyway, and encouraging them to assert that ideal by sending secessionists to their state legislatures.

Our Strategy – Dealing With The Blacks and Hispanics

Southern Nationalists agree that blacks are not our real political enemies. The existence of the Union with Yankees is solely responsible for the creation and preservation of Black Run America.

Secession will solve the problem by eliminating the Yankees and Jews who are responsible for artificially elevating blacks over Southern Whites in Dixie. It eliminates all the Northern Whites who voted for Obama twice, who voted for all the civil rights laws, the federal courts that imposed integration on the South and which obstruct the legislative process, the federal controlled public school system which inculcates White guilt, Eric “My People” Holder’s Justice Department, etc.

The race question with African-Americans and Hispanics can and should be subordinated to the priority of secession and securing our independence. In an independent South, the Eastern media will be unable to maintain the dominant politically correct racial etiquette, which will crumble like communism in the dying Soviet Union, and the blacks will be held accountable again for their actions without federal obstruction.

In dealing with the blacks, Southern Nationalists should be practical and focused on the immediate priority of independence: in an independent South, the blacks will be allowed to keep their voting rights and their civil rights, Russian and Chinese international observers will be invited to Dixie to supervise the fairness of our elections, but Black Run America will be dismantled brick by brick, racial preferences will be eliminated, and power will be restored to the states and local communities to make their own laws including restrictive covenants.

The solution to the Negro Question in Dixie isn’t a radical proposal: all we have to do is encourage the conservatives and libertarians to act on their own ideas, which is to say, secede from the hated “Big Government,” and with a solid rightwing majority in the Republic of Dixie, they should be encouraged to decapitate the welfare state and create the free market paradise of their dreams.

Just imagine this scenario: the year is 2025, and every “Black Confederate” is confronted by the sight of the Confederate flag waving in triumph at every public building in the Republic of Dixie. Five years ago, The Day The EBT Card Quit Working unfolded in Atlanta and there was a mass exodus of blacks from every major city and county in the South which diluted their electoral majorities.

The White conservatives who have an iron grip on the Republic of Dixie’s government didn’t stop with the SNAP EBT card when they seized power. They voted to eliminate the whole Geography of Government Benefits: WIC, TANF welfare, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Obama phones, Section 8 housing, energy assistance, “fair housing laws,” disability benefits, federal funding for HBCUs, affirmative action, “disparate impact,” most forms of public transportation, etc. Even the Post Office was privatized.

The Confederate government and the state and local governments of the Republic of Dixie have laid off thousands of government workers who are disproportionately African-American. They passed a slew of regressive taxes. They disenfranchised all convicted felons and passed stringent federal and state Voter ID laws. As a result, blacks lack the political power to command statewide majorities.

As in the Jim Crow era from 1896 to 1965, the relative differences in social status, economic opportunities, and future prospects precipitated a mass exodus of African-Americans from the Republic of Dixie to the United States, which responded to Southern secession by creating an even larger and more generous welfare state that was infinitely more attractive to “people of color.”

After the Union was dissolved, the Southern Congress pounced and quickly repealed the Immigration Act of 1965, while the remainder of the United States now controlled by the Democratic Party passed the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2020 to encourage Somalians and other types of exotic Africans to move to White enclaves like Minnesota and Maine.

At the state level, the Southern states began passing ever more stringent types of Alabama-style immigration laws and E-Verify laws, which made life a living hell for illegal aliens. Without access to the federal courts and a friendly Justice Department, the Southern states began passing laws that made it illegal to rent housing to illegal aliens and for public utilities to provide them with electric service and running water. The illegal alien population fled a free and independent South.

A huge fence was built on the Texas border which has been decried by Mexico and other Latin American countries as the “Great Wall of Dixie.” Most of the illegal aliens now crossing into the Republic of Dixie are White Midwesterners who brave the Ohio River in a desperate bid to escape the onerous taxation of the United States in the sanctuary cities of Kentucky and West Virginia.

Does this get us all the way to a White Southern ethnostate? No, but it reverses our racial and cultural decline, shuts down the major feedback loops that are driving that decline, it would significantly whiten Dixie, and position us to pass further reforms as the international and cultural context changes in the decades ahead. It would set us on the right course.

The first step is the hardest step to take. It has to be secession.

Our Strategy – Dealing With The Jews

Southerners admire the Israelis.

We ought to use that to our advantage: the Israelis have built a massive border fence and concentration camps for the deportation of illegal aliens from South Sudan and Eritrea. They call themselves a “Jewish state.” They have a great immigration policy which we should claim as the model of our own:

How would Southern secession intersect with the Jewish Question? How many Jews live in the South compared to the rest of the United States?

Total Southern U.S. Jewish Population: 1,164,315
Southern U.S. Jewish Population as Percent of Total U.S. Jewish Population: 17.7%

If the Republic of Dixie seceded from the United States, we would carry out less than 1/5th of the Jewish population in America, over half of which is concentrated in South Florida and the Washington Metro Area. There are only a handful of Jewish enclaves in Dixie.

Of the Jewish members of the 112th Congress, 5 of 26 in the House are from the South (Cantor, Cohen, Yarmuth, Deutsch, and Wasserman-Schultz), and none of the 13 Jews in the U.S. Senate are from the South. Eric Cantor, the only Jewish Republican, is the only Jew in Dixie who represents a majority Southern White Christian district. There are no Jewish governors in the South.

Secession would eliminate the three Jews on the U.S. Supreme Court: Elena Kagan, a Jewess from New York City, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Jewess from New York City, and Stephen Breyer, a Jew from San Francisco. It would also eliminate every single Jewish federal judge in Dixie.

As a practical matter, the Jews in NOVA who work for the federal government won’t be coming with us in the Republic of Dixie. We could cede those counties back to the DC. The great bulk of the Jews in South Florida (where over half the Jewish population in Dixie lives) are snowbirds from states like New York and New Jersey who will simply die out over the next twenty to thirty years.

In the 2012 election, Barack Obama won 69% of the Jewish vote nationwide. In a 2010 Gallup poll of ideology by religion, 43% of the Jews described themselves as “liberal,” 35% as “moderate,” and 20% as “conservative.” A Pew poll recently found that 66% of Jews are “Democrat/Lean Democrat.”

How does this relate to our strategy of encouraging Southerners to revolt in defense of Christianity and their own conservative values? If that actually happened and the Southern states seceded from the Union, it means that Jews who are among the most liberal Democrats in America would among the unhappiest people in the Republic of Dixie, and huge numbers of them would self deport to the United States. The worst Jews here would pack their bags and emigrate.

If the Southern states seceded from the Union, we would lose the capacity to fight foreign wars for Israel, which is a common criticism made by White Nationalists, and it is even more unlikely that we could sustain foreign aid to Israel in light of the high costs of the transition to independence.

The Jewish progressive social agenda would be totally and utterly defeated in the Republic of Dixie. Every Southern state would ban gay marriage and abortion. Christianity would aggressively return to the public schools and the public square.

Does this solve the Jewish Question? No, but secession alone will ameliorate the problem, break the Jewish stranglehold over Dixie, and put Southern White Christians in charge of their own fate. Without the interference of Washington, they will chart a radically different course, one which liberal Jews will find extremely inhospitable and probably so offensive that they will leave.

Conclusion

Secession is the answer to most of our problem.

It is not a perfect solution, but it is a potent remedy. A free and independent South would have a marginal Jewish population of retirees. It would have a receding Hispanic population. It would also have a black population which would lack the political power to command statewide majorities.

There are a number of steps which could be taken that would reestablish and entrench our ethnocultural dominance in our ancestral homeland. By simply seceding and securing our independence, the system we have in place today would unwind naturally without the constant threat of force against us coming from federal government which is driven by forces outside our region.

Just as segregation gave way to integration, the system of integration we have now would likely give way to freedom. Whites would have the freedom to carve out racially exclusive zones within large swathes of the South. We already have Indian reservations and this system could conceivably be expanded to create a patchwork of self-governing racially homogeneous areas which would satisfy everyone.

A free and independent South would shift dramatically to the Right. Transplants who are unable to adjust to the new order would leave while others who embrace our national identity would likely stay. Blacks who are unable to reconcile themselves to the new order would leave. Hispanics and Asians are largely economic migrants and many would depart for opportunities elsewhere. The most liberal Jews would depart from greener pastures. The departure of so many incompatible elements would have a dramatic cultural and political effect on a free and independent South.

Basically, there would be a Great Stabilization, and what would happen is that from within the White Zones, which would be a patchwork of settlements, an embryonic ethnostate would emerge. The White Zones would grow and expand over time and link up as they existed in competition with integrated areas. Within these White Zones, we would have an education system which would propagate an entirely different founding myth, culture and politics that would nurture a strong sense of Southern ethnic identity.

  1. Though not a Southerner, I’d love to see this happen. Anything to give Whites a chance and disrupt the progress of Leviathan.

    • Don’t encourage them. Advocating for culture–ecumenical “Christianity” and Southern identity–over race is a boggy morass in which to get stuck. Sure people will use culture as motivation for promoting white survival against the ticking clock of genocide, but culture must be kept fresh and in play, rather than fundamental and non-negotiable as seen in the above writing.

      If Mr Linder strikes a sour note against a sizeable white population like the above shows, quietly exclude him or make jokes on him, don’t validate his attention seeking with well-laid out facts… Propaganda and a strong personable, not educational, frame is the way to do it. Plus, not associating with and not mentioning pagans is just good manners. Let them slouch down to Hell by themselves.

  2. Catalonians are of the same stock as the rest of the Spaniards: A mix of Celts, Germans, Latins, Greeks and Phoenicians. Their claim to independence is an artificial one based on liberal fantasies, like a non existant “Kingdom of Catalonia”, they never had their own country, they never had a Catalonian king, they never were independent. Catalonians are the ones who marched by the thousands asking their government to take more moroccan refugees, so no. You’re wrong when you say “catalans” are a distinct people, they are not.

    • Norwegians, Swedes, Icelanders, Danes and Faroese are all of the same stock. Should they stop speaking their own languages and abandon their own cultures to become All-Swedes?

      Are the other Scandinavian languages mere dialects of Swedish?

      Norway has spent long periods under foreign rule. Does this mean they have no claim to their own country?

      Why should we equate one of the many Iberian languages – Castilian – with “Spanish” and consider the others mere dialects? Why should everyone have to speak YOUR language? What would you think if YOU were the one forced to speak Basque?

      Pull you head out of your Castilian a$$ and smell something else besides your Castilian bullsh*t.

      The only autonomy we want is the one that Portugal has.

      • Scandinavians were of the same stock… in the Pleistocene, their political unions came and went centuries ago, meanwhile Catalonians were never independent, they called themselves ESPAÑOLES, before these days socialist identitarian bullshit, and in fact, if you search for the origins of the word “ESPAÑOL” i.e. “spanish” you’ll find that the 1st peoples in being called “españoles” were Catalonians, by their Frank overlords: for example, the count of Barcelona was called COMES HISPANIAE. The reason they want to separate is for their POLITICAL CLASS to get EU money. http://carlosv.sociedadheraldica.es/primerosespa%C3%B1oles.pdf

  3. Basques might be a diferent people but they were never independent, there never was a basque state, and for at least 500 years basques were synonym with Spaniard, as they were instrumental in the Spanish conquest as sailors. For a thousand years the only basques there was were SPANIARDS. The name Spain comes from the word Hispania BTW, Spain has 2000 years history at least.

    • Basques have different genes, language, culture, etc, etc. There are more differences between Basques and “Spaniards” than between Dixie and “America”. If you agree with the article above, you must agree with Basque, Catalonian and Galician self-determination.

      “Hispania” was the name given by the Romans to the peninsula, just like the Greeks named it Iberia. What did the Phoenicians call it? What did the Moors call it? What name is the real one?

      Basques are not “Spanish” because Spain is a multi-ethnic artificial construct, a mini Castilian empire, which I suspect you are a part of.

      There is no “Spanish” language, the same way there is no “British” language. There is a language identified as “Castilian” in the Spanish constitution which is unfortunately imposed on other Iberians as the “national language”.

      The only autonomy we want is the one that Portugal has.

      • Did you know Britain was inhabitated by people coming from Spain? I think it’s one of the reasons the Romans called that part of the empire the Gallic Provinces, Hispania, Gaul and Britain. Spain was a geopolitical union at least since the Gothic invasion in the 5th century. In 8 AD The moors conquered the whole of Spain except for ASTURIAS which in turn conquered back the rest of Spain and in its expansion broke into several kingdoms inhabitated by the same celtiberian-germanic people. Portuguese isn’t a race, neither Galician, Catalonian, Valencian, Castilian, Leonese, etc. They’re the same people. And the difference between Castilian and Català is ridiculous, you take a Spanish word, take the last letter out if it’s finished in consonant and voilà, instant Català (Catalán in Spanish). Italians has a stronger case for separation as their union is barely 100 years old or but they still aren’t suicidal morons like Catalonians taking the streets to demand to be invaded by even more muslim immigrants, as they say they’d rather be moors than Spanish. Maybe you should ask Portugal to take you as Galician and Portuguese are almost the same shit, but would they want you?

      • Regarding English, I think it isn’t called British because theirs was always an imperfect union, they warred among themselves trying to conquer each other and they didn’t mix, like Celtiberians and Germans did, British people didn’t forge bonds of blood and history in a struggle to get their freedom and their country back, unlike Spain where they all were Spaniones from Spania as Franks and late Romans attested. The English are of German extract: Saxons, Angles and Normans with a bit of Norwegian. The Welsh, Scots and the Irish are Celts, the English even enslaved Irishmen and send them to America as chattel. That Castilian is called “Spanish” only confirms the existence of one Spanish race.

  4. Very well laid out. The Black question has always puzzled me as to the solution folks in this political spectrum would seek.

    It is my assumption that if you had a new nation where voting rights were based on employment, things in the tax/social engineering would self correct quickly. Basically the same concept of property owners being the only ones that can vote.

    How many of us workers would vote for folks to have free food and housing? NONE. We who were conservatives voted in that manner, our representatives always failed us.

    I suggest in our new nation if one were to benefit from social handouts from the State, you loose voting privileges for that duration. This solution would stop our current problem in the USA of the producers being out voted by the takers.

  5. Transplants who are unable to adjust to the new order would leave while others who embrace our national identity would likely stay.
    I can embrace the new order – I like every proposal, but can’t change my ethnicity.
    Your trade-off is a less pure ethno-state with stronger Christian, conservative values.

    Interestingly, with Trump, secession is going the other way. Or even federalism and “States’ rights”.

  6. What a brilliant article. I would agree that all your talking points are totally true.
    Might i suggest that your point about christianity having no future in the present Usa is true but be quite careful about the type of christians you approach. I would modify the message to include only traditional christians otherwise you could be surprised how fast southern culture might disappear. I give you for exhibition the Anglican church and the current situation under this renegade pope we have and of course the Southern Baptists Conference.

    Something to consider might be starting to broaden the message outside the south and be open to relocation movements of traditionally minded people your way. I realize you consider the south is an ethnicity but outside the south are a huge number that would rapidly assimilate and give you numerical advantage if you could let them see where the south is headed. Traditional Catholics and I suspect Protestants are desparate to find a land where they fit and can find community of thought. I just yesterday was reading articles on Nrx sites talking about building separate cultures away from the dominant culture. I am a traditional Catholic and the same thought runs deep within these circles. We can fit easily inside your culture and worldveiw and support the same effort you depict.

    You must also defeat the outsider perspective that carries the connotation embedded in their mind about white trash and hillbilly. The south needs to try very hard in propaganda to counter these images. When you come upon youtubes of these rolling coal types and these monstrer truck mudfests you really do great damage in the minds of the outsider and the country musician’s constant promotion of booze and partying contributes to the hollywood mythololgy of the south. Begin countering these, reach for the traditional outsider, bring them in with images of a better way, once you reach numerical advantage strike out with secession…..

    • Interesting take and in theory I understand where you are coming from, but just as you point out in your last paragraph, you are wanting us to change. No thanks. While the image you describe does occur here and is a prevalent sub culture it’s negativity is promoted by those who disparage our general culture. No need to distances ourselves, just ignore the propaganda.

      As for wanting more cultural outsiders here, we have many cities that are experiencing the negatives and positives of both. Huntsville Alabama is a prime example of this. The positive include wealth, jobs, increased economy and infrastructure. The negative are increased anti-Southern sentiments and Yankee Social Engineering of which we are currently enduring with new policy of Minority to Majority being implemented in our white schools.

      Thanks for the offer, but many of us would prefer you fix your community where you are. But if your willing to become 100% Dixiefried come on down.

      • Mark, not proposing that you change but suggesting that you broaden your image. My sense of the south is not confined to that which i mentioned, but lots of people, who would otherwise be attracted if they had not been effected by a narrow perspective driven by naysayers….see the south as nothing more then as i described…..my point is that there are large numbers of people with a predisposition to southern culture but do not understand the close affiliation between their ways and yours……go for them, assimilate them and allow them to help you.

  7. It is a timely repost: three months after the tumultuous aftermath of the NPI conference, 1 month into the 48 to 96+ years of Trump Inc. We’ve had a lot of personality based tumult, but the policy goals remain stable:

    Push as hard and far as we can with Trump, correcting him when he strays, and if he falls short? Partition.

    The key strategic point of Trump should be:

    1) demographic change via reduced immigration and increased emigration

    2) reconfiguring our alliances abroad while keeping America out of trouble and safe

    3) security, law and order at home without getting bogged down in ideological disputes

    4) rebuilding the middle class to retain popular support and a free hand for the above

    The left may react violently, which, if handled well, could lead to even more freedom to broaden the agenda.

  8. “There has been an earthquake along that sectional fault line before, which destroyed the Union.”

    I’d call it an ethnoquake or a culturequake.

  9. feel free to add Kansas to Dixie. KS is like OK, plus: wheat! KS would fit in – especially if the liberal NE corner of KS was annexed off (Lawrence – home of KU, & the KC suburbs).

  10. Very well presented article. The only exception I take to it is the presumption that the remainder of the US would stay intact as Dixie secedes. More likely would be a multiple Balkanization, maybe along the nine nation model shown by Garreau.

    The radical shift from 0bama to Trump seems to be speeding things along, everyone seems to be on edge these days. We are not a single nation that’s for sure, but the one most recognizable culture in that nine nation model is Dixie. It would make sense for Dixie to be the first to get things going.

  11. The problem with this scenario is that it glosses over the actual process and logistics of secession. There is no reason to believe that the federal government will allow secession to happen peacefully (they didn’t last time, so why would they this time?) Furthermore, blacks and hispanics are stupid, but not that stupid: they will oppose any sort of white secession violently and have an entire global oligarchy willing to aid them. So that means a Yugoslav/Syrian style fourth generation race war combined with a second civil war against the federal government. That does not sound fun. I consider myself a white nationalist (or a pro-white civic nationalist at least,) but I am not sure how a second civil war in which millions will likely die is preferable to what we have now. There has to be a third way.

    I’ll give one alternative to secession. The white birthrate is currently quite low and has allot of room for improvement. Perhaps all white nationalists really need is to get whites across the U.S. to mimic the birthrate of Utah Mormons. Under the influence of cosmopolitan liberalism, the Hispanic birthrate has cratered, blacks are kept in check by Planned Parenthood, and white liberals don’t reproduce much in the first place. Offer long term contraception to these groups so as to accelerate their demographic decline. Absent Third World Immigration, the demographic future belongs to conservative whites. Furthermore, there are many mixed race individuals with significant white admixture who could potentially be brought into a civic nationalist coalition that eventually restores control of the country to a white majority. Gerrymandering and voter ID laws can be used as stop-gap measures for the time being. The Trump victory should be a hopeful sign that whites are waking up. Maybe we really can Make America Great (White) Again.

    TRS recently made an argument similar to mine. Check it out: http://therightstuff.biz/2017/01/25/castizo/

    See Eric Kaufmann’s “Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth” for a case as to why religious conservatives (which in the U.S. means white religious conservatives) have the demographic advantage:
