On the same day that I posted my “Cosmic America” article, Angelo Codevilla upstaged me with an excellent piece in The American Spectator: “America’s Ruling Class.” It’s an exposition of the growing rift between White Americans and America’s Cosmic elite. It does a more thorough job of illustrating one of the points I was attempting make: that these are truly a new and different people – with their own (secular) religion, their own worldview, and their own ambitions to become an international elite: masters of the universe.
You can call them the ruling class, the managerial elite, rootless cosmopolitans, Cosmic Americans, or even citizens of Smartmanistan. Whatever you call them, they don’t speak for you. In fact, they hope that you choke.
When this majority discovered that virtually no one in a position of power in either party or with a national voice would take their objections seriously, that decisions about their money were being made in bipartisan backroom deals with interested parties, and that the laws on these matters were being voted by people who had not read them, the term “political class” came into use.
This concept of “voice” is critical.
What White Americans are lacking is a voice. In theory, we White Advocates are that voice. We and we alone are the only people in the world who truly speak for them. There are countless others, like Sarah Palin, who implicitly occupy this role, but they’re invariably ideologues who rationalize their abstract agenda as being in our interests. Every other people in the world politically struggle as a people for their collective welfare, but it’s taboo for us to do that. The best we can hope for is to arrive at a collection of abstract ideological positions that happen to approximate our interests.
The peasants are growing restless with this untenable arrangement, but they still trust this society’s experts and authorities. They’ll continue thrashing about with mind games like libertarianism for the foreseeable future. But even if they lower taxes, they’ll get hosed with monetary policies. Even if they End the Fed, the private banks are firmly in the hands of the Cosmic Elite, and nothing will change. Even if they “shrink the government”, they’ll just shift the ruling elites from public bureaucracies to privatized corporate plutocracies. Until our people realize that this is a struggle between us and them, and not a “contest of ideals”, they’ll continue to fall for one hustle after another: liberalism, anti-slavery, natural rights ideology, communism, democracy, capitalism, millenarianism, anarchism, fascism, anti-racism, expressive individualism, libertarianism, postmodernism, feminism, nihilism, humanism, etc.
It’s not that ideals are devoid of importance; it’s just that they’re secondary in importance to trustworthiness and alignment of interests. If you try to do business with a man who can’t be trusted and who has something to gain from deceiving you, then you’ll be had. Just as Aesop’s scorpion told the frog what he needed to hear to get across the river, the Cosmic Elite and their Jewish vanguard will sell us whatever ideologies will serve their political interests. This can be boiled down to a Game Theory formulation, conveyed in a fable, or demonstrated with a poignant example:
We buy the ideology of “meritocracy” because it appeals to our universal moral instincts, and yet meritocracy only works in a closed tribal system. Jews use each victory on merit as an opportunity to install their puppets and advance their own tribal agenda. For instance, Chuck Schumer acquires power through genuine excellence at the art of politics, then exploits that position to install his talentless nobodies like Sotomayor and Kagan in positions of power. Meritocracy eats itself.
We must establish our credibility as White America’s only legitimate and credible voice. This is one reason why I have conniption fits in the comments when anti-American ideas are vented. I hate to borrow a tired neocon cliche, but this is truly snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. The only advantage we have in this struggle is that we’re actually White Americans and we’re actually looking out for their welfare. Jews understand how important it is to appear to be an “us” instead of a “them”. It’s why hipsters enjoy The Daily Show with Jon Stewart instead of Jon Leibowitz. When one of “us” makes a living ridiculing American culture, that’s good fun. When one of “them” does it, it’s an attack. The sustained “culture of critique” attack on White America is contingent upon the shared illusion that not only are Jews us, but Whites who have “gone cosmic” are still us. Neither are.
Spengler does an excellent job of describing our elites…
Long ago the country bore the country-town and nourished it with her best blood. Now the giant city sucks the country dry, insatiably and incessantly demanding and devouring fresh streams of men, till it wearies and dies in the midst of an almost uninhabited waste of country.
… In place of a type-true people, born of and grown on the soil, there is a new sort of nomad, cohering unstably in fluid masses, the parasitical city dweller, traditionless, utterly matter-of-fact, religionless, clever, unfruitful, deeply contemptuous of the countryman and especially that highest form of countryman, the country gentleman.
Many anti-Semites will read “Jews” in that second paragraph, but that’s only part of the truth. Jews are a group of these people from a bygone civilization who figured out how to survive without a folk: by inhabiting host societies. The elites need their folk as assuredly as a shepherd needs his flock, but our elites, chasing the gods of the marketplace, have completely betrayed us. They still exploit our failure to adapt to this new reality, speaking as our “voice” when it suits them, but the charade will only go on so long before there’s an adaptive reaction.
This is what the Tea Party phenomenon and the Ron Paul revolution can be understood as – the first tentative stage of defying the elites. They’re a long way from White Advocates, but this rejection of the elites is the first step toward victory. It’s by no means part of some fixed historical process which would allow us to sit back and wait for them to rally to our cause, but it does mean that they’re rejecting the legitimacy and credibility of the “offical” voices of the regime. It does mean that a window of opportunity is opening for us to establish ourselves as that legitimate and credible voice.
Our enemies have gotten ahead of themselves, “sharpening the knives and cackling triumphantly all too soon“, as Kievsky put it. They already imagine that it’s 2050, extrapolating victory from the current statistical trends as a fait accompli. It’s not 2050, and it was way too early to install an anti-White globalist bankster puppet like Obama as their figurehead. A friend of mine who’s not really familiar with my politics asked me during the election if I thought America was “ready for a Black president”. I replied, “No. They’re ready to vote for one, but they’re not actually ready for one. They’ll vote for him, then turn on him.” The same thing has played out with Michael Steele in the GOP. They’re ready to appoint a Black chairman, but they’re not actually ready for a Black chairman.
This battle over who “speaks for” White Americans is the front line, and our enemies know it. The following comment on the YouTube video of our latest White Advocacy event is revealing…
Plus this shit hate group is a known link to white supremacy and anti-semitism. They have no legitimate voice. Look at this yacking turd. He would fit just nicely in the cast of Mississippi Burning.
This comment doesn’t only reveal that I’m a “yacking turd” and that my fedora strikes fear into their hearts. It also reveals that there’s a very real threat that some Whites will recognize that we’re fighting for them, sacrificing for them, and speaking for them against the media, academia, and government that are all out to get them. In quite possibly the most flattering hit piece in the history of the movement, Chris Bober of Imagine 2050 declared that:
He writes as a white nationalist activist in Indiana his “cardinal objective is to establish visibility and credibility with our target audience of working and middle-class conservative Hoosiers as their foremost advocates.”
While he claims to be an advocate for Indiana’s middle-class conservatives, Matt Parrot[t] is surely not a credible one.
For now, their inverted White Supremacism assures that they’ll continue to be offended at what they perceive to be our picking on the racially handicapped. Their inverted Puritanism assures that they’ll continue mistaking craven concessions to those who are plotting to usurp our birthright for pious acts of moral rectitude. But when our moment of opportunity strikes, whether it’s caused by some natural or economic disaster or as a long and gradual process, we need to be prepared. We need to be their most visible, credible, and legitimate voices. For the time being, we’ll continue to appear marginal, even pathetic, but this is the perfect time to demonstrate moral courage. This is the perfect time to build up a record of advocacy for a people who don’t yet recognize we’re all in the same car, careening off the same cliff.
