Ten Reasons for White Nationalists to Cheer Up

Edward John Poynter, “Faithful Unto Death”

Edward John Poynter, “Faithful Unto Death”

1,669 words

I’m a huge proponent of depressive realism, the proposition that the darker way of looking at things is generally closer to the truth. All things being equal, pride, greed, neglect, and failure are a safer bet than humility, charity, stewardship, and victory. My first nudge away from mainstream thought and belief was a visceral suspicion that humanity wasn’t a global brotherhood of fundamentally equal comrades in a universal quest for happiness and prosperity.

We’re not all equal. Though, without divine intervention, we’re all equally screwed. 

Self-critique is a beautiful thing, presuming it doesn’t descend into self-abuse. Walking the tightrope between humility and humiliation is a balancing act. In the blogosphere, on social media, and in private conversations, just about all I hear is despair. I’m vividly aware that the cause of preserving our folk is pretty much powerless, disorganized, in disarray, and lost with no clear or direct path onward and upward. But there’s a subtle yet important distinction between merely losing and having lost. You haven’t lost until you’ve abandoned your post in the struggle.

I lean on the parable of the Roman soldier who manned his post even as Mount Vesuvius erupted around him…

“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that can not be taken from a man.”

– Oswald Spengler

There is cause for hope, though. Several critical social and political factors are favoring identitarian movements around the globe, including our own causes of White identity and preservation.

1. “No Platform” Bites the Dust

An essential tenet of Organized Jewry and their minions on the Radical Left is the proposition that we must never be granted a “platform” to state our position. Depriving us of a voice is absolutely necessary because our side inevitably prevails when we have a fair hearing. The self-styled “anti-fascists” enjoyed an unprecedented and unchallenged monopoly on the Western mind from the conclusion of WWII until the advent of the Internet.

For half of a century, the antifa media monopoly’s Big Three television networks and Jewish newspaper scions had carte blanche to redefine what it means to be an American, where the spectrum of political discourse begins and ends, and even which direction “progress” is. America had been a coherent European nation with a problematic set of ideas (Enlightenment classical liberalism), but it’s now indisputably a cosmic bazaar of greedy and alienated consumers. When liberals insist that a foreigner compelled to abandon his family, nation, and faith tradition in pursuit of “opportunity” (read: greed) is more “American” than me, everybody who would join me in disagreeing with him has long ago died of old age.

That’s over. The big media monopolies are hemorrhaging audiences and profits. The newspaper dynasties are practically giving away their obsolete empires. The sanctimonious “watch dogs” at the ADL and SPLC have lost their luster, dragged down to our level of bickering in the blogosphere while even mainstream conservative and ideologically consistent liberals question where and why they wield the authority to define who is and is not a proscribed “hater.”

They can continue deleting our comments and trying to block our sites from libraries, but the dogmatically anti-white order is on the defensive and on the retreat in the large and growing field of wide open discourse. All they really have going for them is the lumbering momentum of a generation of hopelessly brainwashed Baby Boomers and the clumsy fist of institutional authority. Their occupied colleges host anti-white hatemonger Tim Wise while blocking us at the door; it’s not like the National Guard is going to be called in to allow us in. But the real debate and the real locus of social and political change is no longer the university lecture hall.

Even on the street, where their anti-white “anarchist” thugs still dramatically outnumber us, we’re winning the fight. In Pennsylvania, we broke through their line and revered our ancestors. In Terre Haute, we rinsed up our busted lips and carried on our planned event while mercifully turning their whimpering guys over to the campus police. At the May Day protest, our small band of protesters stood our ground and fought back the disorganized mob of Marxist radicals. Surely, the laws of chance will grant them a battle victory sooner or later. The fight’s very far from won, but the bottom line is that their attempt to grant us absolutely “No Platform” is in shambles.

2. Western Europe

After WWII, the French copped to a false narrative that they’re cowardly “surrender monkeys” rather than admit that their sympathies leaned in favor of the Axis all along. With their leadership in the rapidly growing Identitarian movement and the growth of Marine Le Pen’s National Front party, we’re witnessing their return to the global stage as one of Europe’s truly great and noble nation-states. If this is what we’re seeing before the deflationary spiral really gets rolling, how much momentum will our side have once the regime can no longer paper over the growing problems with paper currency?

3. Southern Europe

Golden Dawn has set Greece aglow with hope for survival, Sicilian mobs are rioting against the hordes of African immigrants to Italy, and Spain never really stopped being fascist monarchists in the first place.

4. Eastern Europe

We’ve written in depth here about the growing opposition to Modernity in Russia and the rest of the Slavic world. Time will tell where Putin and his colleagues are taking this, but it’s definitely not going according to the “Progressive” plan.

5. The Third World

It seems counter-intuitive that a White Nationalist would look to the Global South and its billions of brown people for hope. But surely enough, there’s hope there. While there’s not an active campaign to replace and displace the world’s non-white peoples, the forces of global capitalism and universal humanism are working against their traditional identities and faith traditions.

When Venezuela refuses to be an American colony, choosing its own path over that demanded by our multinational corporations, that’s our side winning. When Christian priests and pastors in Africa rebel against the decadence and dereliction of Western Christians with their feminism and embrace of disease-spreading decadent sexuality, that’s our side winning.

6. Syria

At this point, even if Assad’s regime falls, the proxy war being waged by American corporations and Islamic fundamentalists in tandem against Tribe and Tradition has been a disaster. All the guns and money in the world is powerless in the hands of confused fools who are as eager to deploy it all against one another as against the intended target.

7. Conservatism is Dead

Sure, the GOP is still there and the Republican Party will remain 49.999% of the electorate for a few more cycles, but there is no coherent “conservative” ideology to be found by just about anybody under 40. The GOP has no choice but to be held hostage by Ron Paul libertarian youths because those are the only young people voting Republican. The future hasn’t been decided, yet, but the hegemony of the National Review set of “yesterday’s liberals” is challenged and radical voices will find new platforms in the coming years.

8. Bitcoin

I know few people agree with me on this one, but I’m standing my ground. For generations, it’s been understood that much of our opponent’s power derives from their monetary hegemony, their control of the world’s central banks. We’ve been swimming upstream in a world where our bitter enemies literally own the sweat of your brow and the roofs over our heads. Limited and ineffectual half-measures like Ron Paul’s “End the Fed” might make the system better, but our only hope is to dramatically revolutionize the financial order out from under the oligarchs.

If, as I predict, digital crypto-currencies manage to do to bankers what the Internet did to newspapers and Napster did to record producers, the plate tectonics undergirding everything on the surface of politics will seismically shift in our favor.

9. Demographics aren’t all bad

The silver lining of our social and economic decline is that our nations are becoming less and less attractive to immigrants. All things being equal, most Mexicans would rather be in Mexico; and all things are indeed equalizing. Radical Leftist whites don’t reproduce anywhere near replacement level, while traditionalist whites do. It’s looking more and more like the 2042 prediction for White Americans becoming less than 50% will be pushed back several years.

Without concrete action, we’re still doomed. But demographic doomsday is likely to arrive a bit later than some of us had presumed.

10. Diaspora Jews vs. Zionist Jews

From the beginning of the Diaspora, there’s always been a dichotomy within the Jewish community between the wealthy and assimilated Jews who left the shtetl and the fertile and observant Jews who remained behind. Up until recently, it’s generally been a symbiotic relationship, with the assimilated Jews behaving like worker bees gathering nectar for the hive.

The growing social, cultural, political, and religious divide between these two halves of global Jewry is a defining challenge for them in the coming century. Without the Jewish tradition, wealthy Jews are doomed to sink into the same abyss of decadence and impotence that the West’s indigenous elites sunk into. Without the wealthy Jews, traditional Jews are harmless eccentrics in funny hats.

While we may not have the strength to wrestle our world away from the death grip of Jewish culture and politics, it’s quite possible, perhaps even likely, that the Jewish community will loosen its grip on its own as internal conflicts and contradictions tear at the Jewish community from within.

    I recently read a State department report on the current state of Al Qaeda. Their projected membership is 75-80k at the low end and topping out at 120k worldwide. The pro white movement probably has slightly better numbers. We could do a lot of damage(metaphysically, not actual violence) if we concentrated our efforts.

    I’m not comparing us to them, it’s my understanding Al Qaeda was created largely as opposition to U.S. Zionist meddling in the Middle East. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

      For what it is worth, the 9/11 Commission says it was our meddling and supporting Israel that inspired Al Qaeda.

    Great essay Matt. Have you ever looked into our post penicillin future? We all take it for granted that “the cure” will always be there. Time will tell.

    Mr. Parrott: Thank you for this inspiring short essay. There is the spirit of a fighter in it.
    Looking at the situation with dissolution occurring to all aspects of life, and the depressing feeling attending this bleak image, one forgets too easily that nature has hidden forces within itself which gain in strength as the balance is shifted away from health, life-affirmation, normalcy and strength; and so we can see, as is put in words so inspiringly, how the order of decay, the power of the negative, the deflation of meaning of life are starting to annihilate one another. The struggle has just begun to become a problem for the powers of dissolution, and with their strength waining the opposing will to live and be free is becoming stronger, and soon will be strong.
    One is certain: This experiment of dissolving nations, cut bonds of blood, teach to act against nature on the one side and teaching negative morality to the world, not just whites, through the example of Israel as a beacon of hypocrisy (I see this as an immense problem as it leads to ethic disorientation) is going to end in a catastrophe from which a new situation will arise. With the old powers either gone or powerless to halt the avalanche they have loosened up, their will does not count anymore and the leftist war against reality will be thoroughly squashed, resulting in the left’s fall from power. The left’s scandal-, indignation-, anti-whatever rhetoric will be ignored.
    A revolutionary spirit will arise within those who want to live, and perhaps even some from the left will re-think the value of life, versus their veiled suicide as encapsulated in their policies of dissolution.
    You have not made any prediction, or had even an opinion on the situation in Germany. The defeat of Germany was the presupposition for the development towards the current situation, and the people in power there are so thoroughly unsound in mind (if you evr follow the “discussions” of these people and the ideas they propose, you’ll see what I mean) that this country will pose serious problems with both the continued deracination of not only the Germans, but through its policies, of the rest of Europe; it strengthens Israel in Europe and will through its bribing power try to increase the momentum of the current development. It is predicted that in twenty years Germans will be a minority within Gypsies, black Africans, Anatolian farmers, Muslims, and whoever is being invited to come in the face of active policies to make Germans not have children. Of course, if the world turns upside down, the regime will fall, but there will be millions of people who have no interest in Germany, nor Europe. The reversal of the trend in Europe will come from countries which have not been traumatized by Re-Education, but to rebuild will take generations. That is a worthy task.

    Great post.

    There’s no reason to feel desillusionized, our great ancestors have live through much harder challenges, and they have prevailed. The great struggle goes on from generation to generation. This day there are more white people conscience about the current situation than there have ever been, and the numbers are constantly growing.

    We young Europeans, in Europe and throughout the world, have been granted a great opportunity – to fight for our peoples in these great times of need. How many of our proud and courageous ancestors do not wish that they would have lived in our days, when their bravery and excellence are needed the most!

    We are priviliged to live in these days, and must embrace the fight wholeheartedly, and swear and oath that we will do what ever we can for our peoples to survive and prosper, through the rest of our lives, and pass this struggle on to our successors. Only in this way of total embracement of the struggle can we find meaning and purpose in life in this age of chaos, degeneration and darkness.

    Oh how I feel pity for the elderly of the boomer-generation. How miserably it most feel to have lived their lives in great material wealth, and from the beds in hospitals and elderly homes see the results of their irresponsible living and morals, and with the knowledge that they have wasted their lifes, and can not do anything about it anymore.

    I have been thinking about this essay since first reading it yesterday.

    There are two forces moving with increasing velocity, and I think ultimate victory may end up being a matter of timing; to wit: the actual numbers of white “recruits” available to a racial awakening is declining; in fact, every time a white girl of good genetic stock reproduces with a black sexual partner, we lose a *possible* future “soldier”; to a less critically damaging extent the same happens when a white male pairs himself with a black female. Simple math. The society that sustains the atmosphere that make these choices possible is ineluctably tied to bourgeois material consumption and current societal norms.

    In several scenarios, when the SHTF, society will probably be brought back to very local levels of cooperation; kinship will reassert itself, and the White race will get a chance to start over. Current system collapse – the more severe, and the sooner it happens, probably the better for White racial survival.

    The other development, the one currently in our favor, is the www and sites like this one. I’ve seen all manner of resistance efforts, since the late 1970’s; everything from the last old hold-out Republicans that were suspicious of the “civil rights” direction of the Dems, to neo-Nazi and KKK groups, to neo-Pagans. None of these previous folks achieved anything like the effect the internet has had on increasing awareness, allowing voices to be heard, and fellowships to form. The small newsletters and sporadic pamphlet distribution of yesterday is dwarfed by comparison.

    So, yes, articles like the one above make me feel good; sites like this one make me feel even better. I’m more optimistic about this movement than I’ve been in 35 years!

    Great article. I just wanted to say something about France. Don’t get your hopes up about the National Front. This party doesn’t take into consideration race issues. They really don’t share our values. The Identitarian movement is better but small.
    I don’t think that most of the French supported the Axis. They just tried to survive. Sure, they didn’t like when the British destroyed our fleet or when the Allies killed more than 50’000 civilians while bombing our country, but the pro-Axis movement was very weak.

    Number 7 is invaluable. The so-called conservatives have been a poison that just can’t get out of our system. Not so sure about number 9 here.

    That Spengler quote is all I need for inspiration. Spengler’s words are so powerful, and it seems to something only European-descended people get.

    Good article.

    One thing I would like to see is more articles on practical lessons for political organizing. Lessons learned and all that sort of thing.

    I’d also like to see coverage of nationalist movements in Europe and what has worked for them and how it can be adapted in the USA.

    And let’s not forget White activists in South Africa!

    Conservatism may not be dead, but it’s running on fumes and has nothing to offer white people in defense of their race and civilization. It’s actually kind of funny because I remember in 1993, Rush Limbaugh proclaimed that conservatism was sweeping the nation and that NAFTA would strengthen Mexico and encourage mestizos not to illegally migrate to America. A moron can see the exact opposite has been the case.

    Conservatism is bankrupt in every way and white nationalists should continue to discredit it at every opportunity.

    I was born and raised a California liberal.

    Now, after reading about the demographic crisis in store for Europe in the next century or so (unless anti-immigatrian movements continue to gain ground) and after reading pieces written by white protectionists I can see that you folks aren’t really the racist hatemongers I was lead to believe you are through home, school, and the media.

    Am I right in coming to the conclusion that many “racist” groups are not actually supremacist, but simply protectionist? I want nothing to do with hate, but I also want to be proud of my heritage and find a like minded girl who wants to reproduce.

    You people aren’t violent haters, right?

      Fellow Californian here. I am glad you found us.

      I think you will better understand White Nationalists by reading this site every day. I do not want to speak for anyone else in response to your questions but I would say that to love something–one’s family, one’s community, one’s race–requires hating that which opposes or threatens it. There is nothing wrong with hate in and of itself. You will find hate around here but not blind hate. It is a hate that has been forged over the years in response to the constant attacks on us from anti-White elites, many of whom are Jews and all of whom are influenced by Jewish philosophy, politics, values etc. So yes, we are haters but only because we love our race and hate those who seek to destroy it. I would spend some time reading Greg Johnson’s various FAQ pieces to get a better understanding. Check this one out first though as it directly addresses us Left Coasters:

      As far as “hater” in the personal/social/media sense. Naw, most of us are really nice guys. You’ll see. Stick around.
