The blackpill. Most seasoned readers will understand that phrase, but for those who aren’t initiated in the jargon of the Alt-Right (or Alt-South) movement, it means that we have to swallow some bitter medicine.
We said all along that we understood Trump was not /ourguy/. He was simply a tourniquet to stop the bleeding and a vehicle to open the national dialogue in our favor. Certainly we have come a long way. We can still credit Trump for helping to cement our movement of ideas and a springboard for recruiting. But in the wake of the Syrian missile strike (and now talks of regime change) we can no longer depend on him for anything that he promised during his campaign.
With that in mind, I believe the Alt-Right needs to set our sights on long-term goals unrelated to Current Year politics. Don’t disconnect. Don’t disassociate. Don’t retreat. That’s the same cowardice that put this country in its current predicament. We must double down and move forward deliberately and intelligently.
Identity Dixie’s mission is Southern Nationalism and the unique values that emboldened men like Robert E Lee and Nathan Bedford Forrest to confront tyranny so many years ago. Nathan Bedford Forrest is a particularly important figure for us to learn lessons from. We should also be emboldened by men such as Frank and Jesse James, who continued to wreak havoc for many years after the war ended.
I won’t go into Forrest’s many campaigns during the War of Northern Aggression or his guerrilla cavalry “Partisan Brigades,” though we would do well to learn from the latter. Instead, perhaps Forrest is most famous (or “infamous” as shitlib dogma would have us believe) for his early role in leading the Klu Klux Klan. Despite a humiliating defeat, Forrest pressed on with the values he led so many honorable Confederate cavalrymen to defend.
The KKK was the first iteration of White Nationalism in the post-war South and those were far different times. Those early nationalists were resentful of the devastating defeat they had suffered, but more importantly the humiliating occupation and demands of the vengeful American Empire and used tactics that can’t be condoned today. But their general advocacy of separation for white and black communities was completely rational and for that, they should be recognized. So for Forrest and his followers, losing the War didn’t end their fight, it simply shifted it in a new direction.
But Forrest can also be held as an example of what can happen when one becomes too blackpilled. He eventually faced so much pressure as a prominent Confederate figure that he renounced the activities of the Klan. Even a man of honor such as Nathan Bedford Forrest can be cucked. Let his shame be your motivation.
Frank and Jesse James are well known for their role as outlaws targeting white abolitionist Radical Republicans during the post war years. During the war they had defied their oath of allegiance to the Union militia and had joined the pro-Confederate irregulars known as the Bushwhackers. When the war ended, they spent their remaining days robbing banks owned by Union sympathizers and continuing to fight the government that was openly hostile to them.
Their legacy is our legacy, because despite their failure to defeat the American Empire, their uphill battles still reverberate even today. Would the Alt-Right movement have any legs in 2017 if our forefathers had not lit that torch for us to carry? The issues of their day are the issues of our day. They had a duty to posterity to fight for the interests of their people then, and that duty is no different for us in the here and now.
Donald Trump’s weakness in the face of (((neoconservatism))) need not blackpill a man who honors the sacrifices of his ancestors. We MUST press on!
