Glenn Miller goes on a shooting spree in Kansas

Glenn Miller goes on a shooting spree in Kansas

Like everyone, I am stunned by Glenn Miller’s shooting spree in Kansas.

There was nothing in his recent posts on VNN Forum that I saw that indicated to me that Glenn was contemplating doing anything like this. If I had any reason to suspect he was considering going on a shooting spree, I would have strongly advised him against it because his actions were immoral and counterproductive.

Why on earth would Glenn Miller murder a random 14-year-old child and his grandfather in cold blood? Here’s my theory:

1.) First, Glenn Miller thought the 14-year-old child and his grandfather were Jewish, and his hero Alex Linder has consistently advocated his “principled solution” of exterminating the Jews for 10 years now, so Glenn assumed that by acting to exterminate the Jews he would win the admiration of his peers at VNN Forum.

2.) Second, Alex Linder has identified Christian morality as a major obstacle to the dehumanization and extermination of the Jews, and Glenn Miller swallowed that psychopathic nonsense, and as a result he wasn’t restrained by the Ten Commandments when he opened fire on the 14-year-old child and his grandfather.

3.) Third, Glenn Miller wouldn’t have chosen to “go out in a blaze of glory” if he had any confidence in his peer group to reverse our racial and cultural decline. He was probably demoralized by interacting with his cowardly peers on VNN Forum. His actions suggest that he lashed out in rage at the “GD kikes” like another one of his heroes, Adolf Hitler, because he was depressed and had given up hope.

Finally, I want to say here that I am not “throwing Rounder under the bus,” although his actions are immoral and unjustifiable. I’m not the one who filled his mind with psychotic bullshit and convinced him to throw away his own life while taking the lives of others. I assumed that someone at VNN Forum was responsible for this on the basis of past experience and that conjecture turned out to be accurate.

It’s sad, but utterly predictable, when these things happen. As long as the White Nationalist movement remains anonymous, internet-based, passive, leaderless, demoralized, and disorganized – in a word, powerless – lone wolves will continue to self detonate in desperate acts of rage.

Note: Don Black of Stormfront has brought up Glenn Miller’s recent correspondence with John Paul Franklin whom he called “America’s greatest hero.” That’s not something I had noticed because I didn’t recognize the name.

Glenn Miller of VNN Forum Arrested For Kansas Shooting

Kansas

Update: Glenn Miller (aka Rounder) of VNN Forum has been arrested in connection with the shootings in Kansas.

Hmm … it sounds like another case of a self detonating lone wolf vanguardist:

“Two shootings have been reported at two separate Jewish-related sites in Overland Park, Kansas, leaving at least two people dead — one at each location.

The first shooting was reported at about 1PM at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. This was followed by reports of a shooting at Village Shalom, an assisted living center that has since been placed on lockdown.

It is unclear at this moment whether the two incidents are related, and there has been no immediate word on other injuries or a suspect description, though a reporter at KCTV says “a man in handcuffs at the scene was yelling about Hitler.”

Appalachia’s Impoverishment

Appalachia

Over the years, I have tried to explain this to various White Nationalists on the internet who know very little about Southern history, and who are under the misguided impression that Southern cotton plantations – hundreds of miles away in the river valleys in places like the Alabama Black Belt and West Tennessee – were responsible for the postwar impoverishment of Whites in Appalachia:

“The Civil War, in both its regular and irregular versions, casts a long shadow of Appalachian history. Though there were other causes of the region’s impoverishment, the effects of the war were significant. The impoverishment of the defeated South generally hurt Appalachia in several ways. The plantation market for Appalachian livestock and foodstuffs was drastically reduced after the war, as were livestock herds in districts where the armies had foraged. The state-owned or state-subsidized railroad systems were substantially wrecked. Railroad corporations based in the North gradually gathered up the financial wreckage as the roads were rebuilt and thereafter operated most of the roads as subsidiaries of northern systems. Although mountain resorts emerged from the war intact, their upper class southern patrons were damaged beyond the extent that even General Lee, who made a point of visiting White Sulphur Springs during the immediate postwar years, could repair.

Wartime congressional initiatives that granted free land to western railroads and free homesteads to settlers of the trans-Mississippi West in effect subsidized competing producers of the agricultural commodities that had underpinned Appalachia’s antebellum prosperity. Although the region’s relative prosperity had been compromised as farmers and herdsmen moved ever more deeply into the Appalachian Plateau, the profits of the antebellum era had borne fruit in the form of several promising local initiatives that were subsequently damaged or disrupted by the war. Two examples are provided by the Burning Springs oilfield near Parkersburg, West Virginia, and the emerging iron making districts around Chattanooga and in northern Alabama. When these industries eventually did flourish, it was as subsidiaries or junior partners of northern firms.

With the impediment of southern congressmen and senators nullified, Congress enacted other legislation that placed the South generally and Appalachia in particular at a disadvantage vis-a-vis the North and West. The National Banking Act of 1863 created a national banking system that dried up credit in the South and West and allowed regional developers to operate only on terms laid down by metropolitan financial interests. Added to lowland resentment at real or imputed mountain disloyalty during the war, the impoverishment of southern state governments meant that the public funding that had financed the canals, turnpikes, and railroads – not to mention the puny educational funding of the antebellum era – was no longer an option for needful mountain communities.

In communities that have been studied intensively, such as Beech Creek, Kentucky, and Cades Cove, Tennessee, the years between 1850 and 1880 were decisive ones in the transition from the backcountry to Appalachia, from the region traversed by Lanman and Olmstead that was united by a common culture, a prospering economy, and a satisfying way of life to a postwar society that was fragmented, divided, impoverished, and violent. The demographic transition, whereby unlimited population growth ran up against diminished resources, was perhaps more significant, but since the war was the most important event of the transitional decades and contributed to the decline of Appalachia’s prospects, the two causes cannot really be separated. Demography lacks the capacity to claim our sympathy for individuals whose fate it was to be born in such interesting times. Stories of war will always be able to do that.”

Colonial Appalachia

The Scots-Irish settled Appalachia by following the Great Wagon Road

The Scots-Irish settled Appalachia by following the Great Wagon Road

Appalachia

The first chapter of John Alexander Williams’ Appalachia: A History is an account of the settlement of Appalachia by the first White settlers, the Germans and English, who were soon followed into the Great Valley from Pennsylvania by the Scots-Irish.

It also focuses on the displacement and destruction of the Indian tribes who once inhabited Appalachia, from north to south, the Iroquois, Shawnee, and Cherokee.

Here’s the final paragraph of the chapter that sums up how Appalachia became a “white man’s country”:

“With the tragedy of the Trail of Tears, the first phase of Appalachian history came to a close. Thanks to the rumors of gold that had circulated three hundred years earlier, the aboriginal peoples of the mountains first faced the disease and destruction that accompanied the European invasion of America. Now the actuality of gold in north Georgia gleamed briefly but brightly enough to lead the process of destruction and loss to its logical end. After 1838, Appalachia was “a white man’s country,” surrounded on all sides by Euro-American settlements. In the course of the nineteenth century, the violent frontier of displacement and repopulation gave way to a different type of frontier, one that blended the culture of the colonial and early republican backcountry with that of an emerging industrial society.” (John Alexander Williams, Appalachia: A History, p.81)

Geologically, Appalachia consists of five sub-regions:

“Geologists have marked off five or six different physiographic provinces within the Appalachian system: the Piedmont, the Blue Ridge, the Great Valley (and sometimes a separate “ridge-and-valley” province consisting of the Allegheny ridges and valleys that parallel the Great Valley on its northwest side), the Allegheny (or Cumberland) Mountains, and finally the Appalachian Plateau. These provinces comprise all of eastern North America’s uplands south of the Adirondacks and extend from the coastal to the interior plains.”

It is a myth that Appalachia is poor because of slavery: the most prosperous era in Appalachian history was the antebellum era, and Appalachia’s economic development was on par with the rest of the South until about 1850:

“The succeeding era, extending variously from the 1760s in the Valley of Virginia to the late antebellum period in the Allegheny and Cumberland plateaus, constitutes the second phase. During this period, Euro-American and African-American labor established the farm-and-forest economy of what might be called classical Appalachia and made it the region’s most prosperous era relative to other parts of the nation.”

Here’s a straightforward account of how Euro-American settlers, overwhelmingly Scots-Irish, English, Scots and Germans, arrived in Appalachia, displaced the Indians, and repopulated the region between 1730 and 1830:

“The era typically defined as the age of the frontier and settlement in Appalachia was actually an era of displacement and repopulation. There were four geographic phases of this process during the roughly one hundred years after 1730. The first phase extended from 1730 to 1763 and involved Appalachian Pennsylvania and Maryland, western parts of Virginia, specifically the Great Valley, the adjacent parallel valleys of the Greenbriar and Upper Potomac, and a fringe of territory along the Monogahela and Ohio Rivers in what is now West Virginia. The second phase was completed by 1789 and planted Euro-American settlements in upper East Tennessee, northwestern North Carolina, northwestern South Carolina, and the central part of Kentucky.  Between 1790 and 1820, repopulation proceeded in the Allegheny and Cumberland plateaus of southern West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southeastern Ohio, plus the Great Valley in middle East Tennessee and the Blue Ridge and adjacent foothills territory in western North Carolina. The final displacement and repopulation came between 1820 and 1840, when the Cherokee nation was expelled from its lands in southwestern North Carolina, southeastern Tennessee, north Georgia, and both the Great Valley and Cumberland plateau lands of northeast Alabama.”

The Germans arrived early in both Virginia and the Carolina backcountry:

“In Virginia, many of the earliest valley settlers called “Dutch” were actually “Switzers,” that is, natives of the German Protestant cantons of Switzerland. In South Carolina, some 3,700 German immigrants entered the colony between 1748 and 1759, almost all of them arriving through the port of Charleston. Roughly a third of these came in a single year, 1752, from the southwest German province of Württemberg. The majority clustered in compact settlements in the Broad and Saluda valleys in the north central part of the province, away from both the Cherokee path and the road leading northward to Pennsylvania. …In contrast with Pennsylvania, there is no record of hostility between English and German speakers in the Carolinas, nor did English settlers already planted in a district abandon it when Germans moved in.”

The Scots-Irish poured into the Southern backcountry through the Great Valley from Pennsylvania after the 1730s:

“In Virginia, Irish Protestants poured into the middle and upper reaches of the Shenandoah Valley, beginning in the 1730s. ..

In the Carolinas, the Irish settled in enclaves interspersed among German enclaves in the valleys of the Yadkin and Catawba Rivers in North Carolina as well as in the Waxhaws … An analysis of names recorded in the 1790 census discloses that 18.9 percent of the population of South Carolina was Scots-Irish, 17.8 percent of Tennessee’s, 16.5 percent of Kentucky’s, 15.1 percent of Pennsylvania’s, 12.2 percent of Georgia’s, and 11.7 percent of Virginia’s, compared with 10.1 percent of the overall US population. It should be kept in mind that Ulster immigration resumed after the Revolution and reached its peak after 1815.”

“Greater Appalachia” would later extend all the way to eastern New Mexico:

“The backcountry migration was one of the great folk movements in American history. To accommodate it, the Warrior’s Path of the Great Valley became a Great Trail, then a Great Wagon Road connecting Pennsylvania with the South. At its Southern end it was known as the Philadelphia Road, in Pennsylvania as the Virginia Road. Where it forked in the Roanoke section of the Great Valley , the southwestern branch became the Wilderness Road, while the Southern branch became the Carolina Road.”

The southern and northern ends of Appalachia were secured as part of the American Revolution when the Cherokee and the Iroquois sided with Great Britain and were defeated by the Continental Army.

Alabama State Conference Videos

Alabama

In the video below, I lay out the reasoning behind how we are going to use street demonstrations to build up the Southern Nationalist movement. The speech is an expanded version of my article, The Logic of Street Demonstrations, and it is based on 13 years of observation and experience with the White Nationalist movement.

There’s nothing particularly new in the speech. The subject has been discussed here on OD many times in the past. It has been implicit in everything we have done since the Uvalda & Vidalia, GA event last August and evolved out of our conversations during and after the 2013 CofCC and League of the South national conferences.

The basic insight here is that the internet has dominated the movement for the last twenty years and has deformed and weakened it in various ways. The plan here is to shift our focus off the internet and back into the real world, fix a lot of the things that are broken, and gradually lay the foundation of a stronger and more powerful organization that can give structure to the movement.

The SPLC misses here that we are going to do the same thing with the CofCC. There are tons of people reading the CofCC website, who have been involved with the CofCC over the course of several decades, and we can get them more active again like we are already doing with the League, hopefully even outside the South.

Confederate Appalachia

Virginia

Here’s an excerpt from John Alexander Williams’ book, Appalachia: A History:

“It was also a fact, however, that the mountain region had plenty of secessionists. Thomas Clingman and William Waightstill Avery, Democratic rivals of Vance for leadership in western North Carolina, were “fire-eaters” even before the secession crisis. The representatives of southwest Virginia, including present southern West Virignia, voted as heavily in favor of secession in the Richmond convention as representatives from the northwest voted against it. ..”
