Pat Buchanan: Is Secession a Solution to Culture War?

Patrick Buchanan recently raised the issue of secession, which has been in the news in both Blue State California and Red (or maybe Purple) State North Carolina. Buchanan openly questions, given the “divisions among us, deeper and wider than ever,” whether the Right and Left actually want to avoid a civil war. He argues:

A new federalism – a devolution of power and resources away from Washington and back to states, cities, towns and citizens, to let them resolve their problems their own way and according to their own principles – may be the price of retention of the American Union.

Let California be California; let red state America be red state America.

That seems unlikely at the moment despite the #Calexit movement and other regional secessionist efforts. Trump has sent the issue of transgender bathrooms back to the States. But in general the States are mere administrative units of the US regime. They may over time begin to reassert sovereignty but the trend has been strongly away from decentralization.

Emotions are also running very high now. Wild street protests and political violence are becoming normalized. And we are only a month into the Trump era. This summer could be chaotic. If I were a betting man I would bet on a lot more political violence and unrest with even deeper divisions between Left and Right developing over the next year. In that political climate a lot more possibilities will likely open up to us. Maybe even secession.

  1. I suggest that you read Mein Kampf. You will find that Hitler was extremely explicit about not wanting to see Austria-Hungary’s Slavs assimilated into German society.

    Why? Because Slavs and Germanic people are both White but they are not part of the same volkish community. A volk is not just a lump of White people. It is much deeper than that.

    I am also not ignorant of Hitler’s views on ethnic & regional nationalism. The reason why he mocked Bavarian secessionism is that Bavarians, Austrians, Prussians, etc. are all ethnic Germans. Bavarian secessionism was therefore not a form of ethnic nationalism. It was a type of regional nationalism.

    Is it really that hard for you to understand the difference between these terms? You keep using them interchangeably even though they are not at all the same.

    I will also add that White Americans are not a traditional volk. They come from all over the world, have very different histories, and their main tie to each other is that they speak the English language. There simply isn’t a lot connecting the Polish x Italian x Irish mishmash of New York with Anglo Southerners.

    But if you come from a heavily ethnically mixed background, then I fully encourage you to promote White Nationalism within your community. Just don’t inflict your personal situation on everyone else.

    There are very real physical, mental, and psychological tendencies that vary from ethnicity to ethnicity. Swedes don’t look like Slovaks and Greeks don’t think like Germans. And we like it that way. Please stop trying to merge us all into some giant empire.

    Many of the non White children live in the Black Belt or are Hispanics in the Southwest.

    Have much have you traveled? Every major metropolitan area in America (and many in Canada) have tons of nonwhite children. You can’t solve the racial issues in America by simply cutting off the Southwest and the Black Belt.

    A stronger, greater nationalism of the volk always wins out over petty tribal loyalties.

    Tribe and volk are the same thing, mate.

    An independent Southern society is not going to be strong enough to advocate for White interests in the world

    An independent South would be one of the most populous White nations on Earth and would, within a few years, be a world-class power. Dixie isn’t as rural as she used to be.

    Finally, I want to point out that you completely ignored my point about White Nationalists struggling to get elected to their local city counsels. The simple truth is that White Nationalism has been tried over and over again and it keeps failing. Why? Because it is a modern ideology which doesn’t fit humanity’s naturally tribal instincts.

    People are happiest when they’re surrounded by members of their own tribe, not forced into giant racial empires.

    And as for ‘muh brother wars’ do you even realize that most of us ethnic Nationalists don’t want to kill each other? A lot of us are happy to ally – as we did during the crusades. We will march together and then we will go back home to our own nations.

  2. Some commenting really need to take a few steps back and consider what they are talking about. The question you should be asking is what is more important – my country or my race.
    Only one of those will survive in to the distant future. I know which one I want surviving.

  3. So you do not use twitter. I looked at VK but it seems incredibly obscure. We both live in NC and I’d like more info on how to pitch in. What can we do about that?

  4. I agree. I have lived in other parts of the US for brief periods. Those are not my people. I wish them all the best (I guess) but I’d rather not live in a country that has to cater to their shitty culture.

  5. I started a group called North Carolina Secessionists at Facebook. Though I was deleted from Facebook for my articles attacking Merkel and supporting Southern White Supremacy, the group is still run and commanded by good friend.

    Online you can advocate there.

    The League of The South in North Carolina is headed by Mr. Harold Crews and he can connect with great people. The League is in a league by itself as a Southern Nationalist organization that works to free us and our children today – instead of living in 1861.

    The League can help teach you how to advocate in many different ways.

    The Tea Party of NC – though these people are politically correct, they do a lot of good. They have helped take back our state from alien control.

    Here is another strong advocacy group. They can help you remind our state and national congressmen how to stay focused on protecting our culture…

    These are good starting places. Other places are to join a local Southern Baptist church and, when, during bible class or get-togethers, politicks comes up, you can make sure that members, who probably only watch FOX News can get the truth about the situation of The Southern White Race.

    Furthermore, once you get to feeling up to speed on these issues, you can also talk to your neighbours and friends and family.

    If you still need more help, anywhere along the way, don’t hesitate to ask me, or the site host of Occidental Dissent, Mr. Brad Griffin,(Alabama League of The South) or these to whom I have recommended you.

    Once you get involved, you will begin to realize that we are all around you, and, most likely, you will appreciate being in the midst of your fellow Southern Confederates – both in the flesh and in the abstract.

    God bless you for being willing to stand up for our state and our people. We can win this fight, but, we can’t do it without you.

  6. Actually, I have been advocating (subtly) for similar ideas for years. I cannot discuss this here but I have been quite active.

  7. I absolutely agree with you.
    While I support nationalism, I also support a measure of pan-European identity.

    We are only in this state because we were more than willing to kill each other in 1914 and 1939.
    We need to understand that we are a minority in this world. We can’t afford another white-on-white war.

    I sympathize with southerners as I am one. However, we should embrace each other as well. I have more in common with a Danish patriot than I do a (((southerner))) who may live down the road.

  8. That’s just great news, General.

    It’s also great you won’t discuss it here.

    In fact many things are not discusst here, thus, unless you are in this, it is impossible to know to what extent this is – which is a good thing.

    Thank you for your steadfastness and your service to our people and culture.

  9. LOL you’re a joke. Southern is not an ethnicity, that is unless you’re willing to SHARE that ethnicity with the the people of color, many of whom were there back when Europe thought the world was flat.

  10. …and you’re a gay stalker who is not capable of doing anything on his own and has to follow me around.
