Let Freedom Ring

1,561 words

The Fourth of July is a bittersweet holiday for me. I have fond childhood memories of fireworks and BBQs with my family during each Fourth of July weekend. Yet as an adult, I have been living in Europe where I never celebrate the holiday. Due to the recent extension on travel restrictions, I spent this Fourth of July back in the USA. Unfortunately, this year’s holiday seemed more like a funeral than a celebration of the nation’s independence. The harsh reality is that America no longer represents or protects white Americans. It is time for white people in America to celebrate our own independence by forming our own communities, cultures, and identities.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to live in Europe, particularly in Scandinavia. That was where all the heavy metal bands I listened to as a kid and teenager came from. While I never had a complete disdain for the US, I always hated certain aspects of American culture. I never liked sports and I hated rap music. I also never got along with the non-white kids at my school. My father recommended me to stay away from them and later explained to me that non-whites committed violent crimes at a much higher rate than white people. Thus, I wanted to move to Europe where I could live safely amongst white people while also attending the heavy metal festivals I read about in magazines.

Yet despite having to live and go to school amongst non-whites, my parents made sure that I had the best childhood and teenage experience possible. My mom always got me video games, fantasy books, and heavy metal albums for birthdays and Christmas. We also celebrated all the major holidays. When I was a kid, the Fourth of July was a time where I would light fireworks with my family as we ate hot dogs and waved American flags. You could always see merchandise with bald eagles with the words “freedom” and “liberty” printed in red, white, and blue. Even at an early age, I realized that only white Americans took pride in these symbols and meanings. Non-white kids may have been excited about the fireworks, but only white families raised the American flag in front of their homes. Only white people cared about “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

While I have fond memories of American holidays with my family, I feel sympathy for young white kids in America. What can they really celebrate each Fourth of July? Should they celebrate becoming a racial minority? Should they celebrate the increasing anti-white propaganda in our schools, media, and political system? Or should they celebrate each time their families get attacked by non-whites while wondering if their parents will lose their jobs for complaining about it?

America no longer protects the rights, liberties, or freedoms of white Americans. The police and elected officials no longer protect the physical safety of white people. Yet when white people try to defend themselves, the police and various law enforcement agencies move heaven and earth to find them and arrest them. President Trump cannot even protect his own supporters attending his rallies or speeches without being attacked by BLM and Antifa. The country that white Europeans built no longer exists. Whatever has replaced America now continues to allow and promote propaganda, intimidation, and violence against white people.

Modern-day America seems more like an oligarchical empire than a Western, democratic nation. When I look at the current state of America, I see an empire defined by anti-white liberalism, tech-censorship capitalism, and endless wars in the Middle East for Israel. The demographics of the country show that white people have already become minorities in specific age groups and geographical areas. As white people decline in population, so too will our customs, traditions, and holidays. It is only a matter of time before the Fourth of July is labeled too “racist” to celebrate. Maybe America’s Independence Day will be replaced by a Wakandan day of atonement. Or maybe the Fourth of July will be erased and rewritten, just like the 1619 Project is rewriting American history in public school systems.

Even in my own lifetime, I have seen the dismantling of white holidays and festivities. First, they started criticizing Christopher Columbus and guilting white people for celebrating Columbus Day (despite the questionable background of Columbus). The holiday was then given an alternate title of “Indigenous People’s Day.” Within the last few weeks, various statues of Columbus have been vandalized, torn down, and removed. The same has occurred to other statues in the US of historic Europeans.

On June 19th, 2020, at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California, various statues were vandalized and toppled beyond repair by Antifa and BLM. The statues were of Miguel de Cervantes, Junipero Serra, and Francis Scott Key. Cervantes was the author of Don Quixote, a milestone in European literature that many consider the first modern novel. Despite having his statue vandalized in protest of “racism” and “slavery,” Cervantes himself was a slave. His ship was captured by Muslim Ottoman pirates in 1575. Cervantes was forced into hard labor in Istanbul before his ransomed release five years later in 1580. Cervantes would use his experience as a slave in many of his writings.

Junipero Serra was a Spanish Franciscan priest who created 21 Catholic missions from San Diego to San Francisco. Along with religious institutions, Serra and his Franciscan friars brought transportation and infrastructure to the area that would become California. Despite his many charitable works, BLM and Antifa vandalized a statue of Serra at Golden Gate Park and another statue of Serra at the California State Capitol in Sacramento during this year’s Fourth of July celebrations.

The Fourth of July holiday would not exist as we know it without Francis Scott Key. Key was a lawyer and poet who composed the lyrics to America’s national anthem. Key witnessed the attacks on Fort McHenry during the war of 1812. After seeing the American flag still flying over the fort at dawn, he immediately wrote the lyrics to what would become “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Even as I write this, I hear fireworks going off in my neighborhood. When I hear any type of fireworks, I will always think of the Fourth of July. It was Key who was able to transform a dangerous battle scene into explosive emotions of freedom and liberty. Over 200 years later, communist terrorists would vandalize Key’s statue at Golden Gate Park.

Perhaps it is time for white people in America to form a new identity. If America no longer represents us or protects us, why should we be loyal to America or identify as Americans? I might have been born in the US, but that does not mean that I will always live in the US or die in the US. Perhaps I will continue to live somewhere else.  Perhaps the US will Balkanize and dissolve into various nations. Maybe white people can move to areas where they can form communities, neighborhoods, and businesses around other white-positive people. Certain European countries even offer right-of-return programs to people with family members originally from those countries. These are just a few different ideas for people in different situations. Regardless of your situation, it is time that white people declare their freedom and independence from the oppressive tyranny of the anti-white USA.

Despite being proud of my Danish and Karelian heritage, I have been told by people that I will always be “just an American.” Would they say the same thing to the people that lived in the USSR or Yugoslavia? Will those people always be Soviet or Yugoslavian? No. While those oppressive regimes impacted their lives, it is no longer their identity. They are Russians and Ukrainians. They are Serbs, Croats, and Macedonians. They are the Slavic people of the white race. And just like all empires that grow too large and become too diverse, America will eventually fall and burn. Perhaps only from those ashes will white people in America be able to rebuild a society for themselves. A new Denmark. A new Karelia. A country dedicated to securing the existence of our people and a future for white children.

Until then, I will always be proud of my race, my ethnic background, and my country of origin. No matter where I live, I will always have my accent, my personality, and my positive attitude. I will always enjoy wheatgrass for breakfast, green tea for lunch, and pizza and red wine for dinner (along with a shot of whisky with friends). Yet wherever I live, I bring my racial genetics and cultural behaviors with me. I will maintain my languages so that I can teach them to my future children. It is through these things that we can rebuild our communities, culture, and identity.

In the land of the free and the home of the brave, let freedom ring with ethnic sovereignty and white solidarity.

    The USA may fall, but the white American people will endure. Happy treason day to all of you ungrateful colonials.

    Thanks for clarifying my mistaken views about Cervantes. Being a big fan of Chesterton’s poem, Lepanto, I know that Cervantes fought in that battle (October 7, 1571) and was wounded. I thought he sailed back to Spain with Don John of Austria and sat down and wrote his masterpiece. I had no idea that he was still kept as a slave afterwards.

    I am older than you so I still have more positive memories of White America than you do. My wife and I have been living in Hungary since 2011 but still every July 4th we watch the movie “1776” and that is how we enjoy our 4th of July.

    I’ll skip a long history lesson, but this was indeed our country until it got hijacked. It’s possible that pretty soon, being an old-school patriot will be about as provocative as waving a Confederate flag is now.

    WHITE AMERICANS no longer protect the rights, liberties, or freedoms of white Americans
    WHITE police and WHITE elected officials no longer protect the physical safety of white people
    when white people try to defend themselves, WHITE police and various WHITE law enforcement agencies move heaven and earth to find them and arrest them

    WHITES are the White´s enemy.

    It is very difficult to spell the problem out to Whites. It is very difficult to grasp. I guess it is that the idea of equality just doesn´t work. Different people do NOT really want to live together, thus disunity can always easily be sparked.
    I guess what I essentially want to say is: this is a mental problem, a problem of logic: to solve the problem of equality while including all relevant factors.
    Whites are not able to solve that conundrum.
    The problem is: these Whites will easily solve the conundrum by mere practise once they are being hunted down in masses, but then it is too late for us as a group.

    This is just so well set up by the usual suspects.
    George Soros´ schtick is… basically… : do that which works; i.e. that which moves on on its own once you kicked it off. Whites are more decent than Blacks are not-violent; result: White dispossession, and Soros gains in the process of it. It is literally nothing more than that: he thinks that he helps natural law to exert itself; i.e.: this is meant to happen because the process runs on its own (scientifically: a process runs on its own when the energy level of the products is lower than the energy level of the educts). Soros helps nature to bring things into the natural balance. The natural balance is: Whites are cowardly when brainwashed by jews and get subdued by blacks. That´s the natural order of things. Sad but true.

    Big crowds of non-whites, especially of the melanin enhanced variety, make me depressed on July 4. They are psychologically alien from me. They’re okay people. I mean they survive without killing each other for the most part, but they’re boring people. You can’t go deep with them in discussions. It’s all surface level BS.

    Though all races have pretty women, there’s only one of me (unfortunately), and I want to go with a white girl (no disrespect to non-white women).

    I don’t share your like for metal or tea. I like a spicier EDM and fizzier flavored mineral water. Most of the best EDM comes from Europe by the way. They and metal are distinct from pop music, which is Africanized, but even your metal and my EDM are Africanized to some extent ( they have more beat and simplified melody). Traditional folk, polyphony, and classical are the whitest genres. I wonder what’s whiter than they are.

    I don’t share your positive attitude. At least not all the time. White people sometimes get me depressed. Psychotic leftists who worship brown people, whites in corporations/governments that cave in to their demands, credentialism, selfishness, dishonesty, and nanny state whites bother me. Decadent baby boomers, stingy Gen Xers pulling up the ladder behind them, and millennials with Stockholm syndrome all bother me. Whites need to start feeling bad about themselves because they are acting terribly. They have more wealth than any human group ever and are misusing it badly. It doesn’t help that Jews have even more wealth on average, though it’s good they’re marrying whites. All those recessive Ashkenazic genes are best blurred out from being expressed by being absorbed into the white population. They were nice while they lasted. I mean, there were some funny comedians and E=MC^2, but the whole 1965 immigration act, Freud/Frankfurt school anti-white family thing, Communist mountains of skulls, and economic domination thing were a very bad, but whites went along with it.

    I am dissapointed with white people. Not as much as I am with brown people but still dissapointed. I wonder sometimes whether we are not intelligent enough or commonsensical enough to survive. We need a culture and nation conducive to life. White people need to do better. We have everything to lose by mixing with non-whites. Whites moved the world from stone to metals and from wooden carts to space shuttles. And they don’t have as much confidence in their history as descendants of savages do in theirs. It’s a shame.
