Yes, @yhazony, that’s exactly my complaint about your rationale for disinviting me from your “National Conservatism” conference. AND WHY WON’T YOU SAY WHY YOUR BOOK SUPPRESSED JEWISH MATRILINEALITY? https://t.co/cmej6PxI8X— Peter Brimelow (@peterbrimelow) June 25, 2019
All of the “alt-right adjacent” Jewish personalities on twitter are coalescing around @yhazony and his fake and gay “nationalist” gambit that is the latest zionist attempt to contain and undermine rising populism. Striker or I will be happy to debate this shill at any point.— DSA Mike Peinovich??? (@DSAMikeP) June 25, 2019
“What were once linchpin concepts such as family and nation, man and woman, God and Scripture, the honorable and the sacred, have been found wanting and severely damaged, if not overthrown. The resulting void has been filled by new doctrines, until now mostly neo-Marxist or libertarian in character. But a racialist “white identity” politics in a Darwinian key is gathering momentum as well.
All three of these approaches to political and moral questions are, in a sense, creatures of the Enlightenment, claiming to be founded on a universally accessible reason and to play by its rules. This is another way of saying that none of them have much regard for inherited tradition, seeing it as contributing little to our understanding of politics and morals.
The reality, however, is that the exercise of free human reasoning leads to Marxism or to a quasi-Darwinian “white identity politics” just as easily as it leads to social liberalism or libertarianism. And tomorrow, it will lead somewhere else entirely, abandoning the results of today’s reasoning as relics of a bygone and benighted past. …
The revolution unleashed in this way did have certain positive consequences. Among these I would count the elimination of state-sanctioned racial segregation in the American South, and other items could certainly be named. But the new era of what Selden called “free and untrammeled reason” as the sole guide for our understanding of what is good and right has thrown us into a perpetual revolution that is devouring all inherited wisdom and common sense. As is now obvious to many, this revolution has no natural stopping point. If its course cannot be deflected, it will end with the destruction of the Western democracies and their replacement by a despotism sufficiently vicious to be able to put a stop to the revolution by force.”
This is a highly misleading essay.
I agree with Mike Enoch that Yarom Hazony’s National Conservatism conference is just the latest example of Jewish gatekeeping and the whole purpose of it is to misdirect the rising nationalist and populist sentiment in the West in order to maintain the status quo of Jewish power.
A few points:
1.) First, Hazony complains about “white identity politics in a Darwinian key” and attributes it to Enlightenment rationalism. This is historically false. White identity emerged in the American colonies in the 17th century as an organic response to slavery and warfare with Indians. White supremacy was an established fact in Barbados and Virginia and Maryland decades before John Locke sat down to write his Two Treatises of Government. It was over two centuries old by the time of Darwin. Darwinism is just the latest scientific framework for understanding racial differences.
2.) Second, Hazony is mischaracterizing the return of White identity politics. It would be more accurate to say that it was repressed by the so-called “mainstream” in the aftermath of the Second World War. As the Jewish “mainstream” has lost its legitimacy and resentment has grown about the neverending tidal wave of Third World immigration, White identity politics has revived. This is a tradition that is older than the Enlightenment and the American Founding and is ultimately rooted in racial conflict in the New World which has been around since the time of Columbus.
3.) Third, Yazony complains about how liberalism has dissolved organic national traditions, but then goes on to celebrate “the elimination of state-sanctioned segregation” in the South as a positive development. He is right though that the demise of segregation in the 1960s should be seen in the larger historical context of the liberation of women and homosexuals which were all the byproduct of the same Jewish liberal worldview. A century before, the South seceded from the Union to escape the nightmare of “Black Republicanism” which was the projected future of not only the abolition of slavery, but also liberalism run amok in the abolition of patriarchy and gender norms as well.
4.) Fourth, Yazony deliberately avoids the elephant in the room which is what happened to the WASP elite in the mid-20th century. The truth is that it was overthrown and displaced by its Jewish challenger. Jews became wealthy and powerful and ascended into the American elite in the mid-20th century and that social fact has had far reaching consequences for the entire Western world which has been under American hegemony since the Second World War. We have a hostile elite of Jews who are setting the cultural norms now. These are the people who are celebrating Drag Queen Story Hour, but demonizing Christian bakeries. These are the people who are censoring the internet and agitating for war with Iran. They are the reason why “anti-Semitism” is now considered highly immoral, but not pornography.
5.) Finally, it was the liberal order which made this situation possible by weakening the social fabric to the point that this was able to happen. Previously, Christians wouldn’t have consented to being lorded over by a hostile Jewish elite bent on their cultural destruction and demographic displacement, but now we live under the myth of “Judeo-Christianity” which was fabricated by the “mainstream.” In fact, the “mainstream” created and enforced an entirely new moral code which didn’t exist in 1900 and has steadily replaced the “Christianity” in “Judeo-Christianity” with it.
