For decades, nationalists have argued about what it will take for the average American conservative to rise up. The answer was when FOX News told him to spread the coronavirus in his community.
If nothing else, the coronavirus should settle this question once and for all. Nationalists have never been able to connect with these people because of their orientation toward individualism and materialism and their ideological frame which is liberalism. They simply don’t share our core values and beliefs.
Conservatives only have an extremely weak sense of racial or ethnic identity. They have a national identity which is based on liberalism. Their whole belief system is built upon an edifice of individualism and selfishness. Why is the Coronavirus Tea Party springing up around the country now, but not before? It is because conservatives and libertarians have been personally impacted by the virus.
As recently as February, conservatives weren’t rising up in the streets. Over the past twenty years, countless black-on-white crimes have occurred … and they slept. Tens of millions of illegal aliens have poured into the country … and they slept. American culture has gone in the toilet … and they slept. Their daughters were impregnated by blacks … and they boasted about it on Facebook. Confederate monuments were torn down all over the South … and they slept. Trump betrayed all his campaign promises except for the tax cuts and the stock market boom … and they slept. They lack a conception of the common good.
I’ve only seen conservatives “rise up” twice in my lifetime. The first time was after the Crash of 2008 when Rick Santelli on CNBC called for a “Chicago Tea Party.” The second time was after the Trump Crash and the lockdowns when FOX News began promoting the protests against stay-at-home orders. Is it a coincidence that conservative activism is triggered by stock market crashes? What happened to the Tea Party? It disappeared after electing Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio and Nikki Haley. After the economy recovered and the stock market soared to record highs and the GOP had control of all three branches of government, activism was unnecessary and ceased to be promoted by conservative media outlets.
Do you remember Charlottesville? In that case, we were protesting the removal of the Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson monuments. We were attacked by Antifa in the streets. The Democrat governor and Charlottesville city government set us up and had the police stand down. The media played their part and said we had rioted. I will never forget the day when we were all condemned by Donald Trump and the GOP for engaging in activism over something other than money. Now those same people who condemned us as evil for honoring the memory of our forefathers are out there protesting for their right to kill a bunch of weak and elderly people! Tens of thousands of them!
As we all remember, Heather Heyer died in Charlottesville after the Unite the Right rally. If the Charlottesville government hadn’t botched its own plan and kept that intersection closed, it never would happened either. It is impossible to tell whether she died from the impact of the Dodge Challenger or with the impact of the Dodge Challenger due to her preexisting conditions which were smoking and morbid obesity. Everyone else who was hit by the Dodge Challenger was healthier and survived. Do you remember a single conservative pundit making this distinction at the time? Donald Trump said that day that James Fields, Jr. was a “murderer” and “a disgrace to himself, his family and this country.”
I don’t have any problem believing that Heather Heyer died in Charlottesville from the impact of the Dodge Challenger and with her preexisting conditions. The distinction doesn’t really matter because without being hit by the car the poor soul wouldn’t have dropped dead that day. Well, 80,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 and 188,000 are expected to die by August 4 and suddenly conservatives aren’t calling Donald Trump a murderer. They aren’t even saying he is guilty of manslaughter. Trump isn’t “a disgrace to himself, his family and this country” for listening to Jared Kushner, Steve Schwarzman and Nelson Peltz and making the call to “ride it out” and “think of it as the flu” in February. If Heather Heyer had lived three years and died of “just the flu” in 2020, conservatives would have written it off as a death from a preexisting condition. Unhealthy people drop dead all the time. Big line has to go up!
I don’t support the Coronavirus Tea Party because the protests aren’t about the common good of the nation. These protests are solely about individual grievances. I’m literally dying here because I am locked up in my house. I’ve lost my job. My rights have been violated by a tyrannical government. Ultimately, it all zeroes back to liberalism and Number One, which is why we know nothing will come of these protests like the previous Tea Party. Once the pandemic fades, the economy revives, the stock market goes up, the stay-at-home orders are suspended, it will be back to business as usual with these people. They will all go back to not caring about the future of their country and the world beyond their own doorstep.
I’m against pandering to conservatives and libertarians. I don’t see any future for nationalism within any kind of liberal framework. The nation will unravel and die of individualism, materialism and selfishness as it has been slowly disintegrating since the end of World War II. Indeed, this crisis proves that there is no future in racist liberalism because a people who can’t even pull together over a common good like stopping a deadly epidemic won’t pull together to do anything else, and certainly not over any of the things which don’t even arouse this amount of anger like our racial and culture decline.
Liberalism and ethnonationalism are philosophically incompatible. The former celebrates the individual and his rights and the “virtue of selfishness” and denies the existence of any type of higher common good. The latter holds that the ethnic integrity of the nation is a common good and the highest good of the state and that the rights of the individual must be subordinated to it. The coronavirus has laid bare what a conservatism that lacks any sense of the common good and which celebrates the greed of billionaires over the general welfare of the nation, particularly its weakest members, will ultimately lead to.
