The Red Ripple Was a Triumph for White AdvocatesMorris van de Camp
As I write this, the final results of the 2022 midterm election remain in doubt, but it appears that the Republicans will win a bare majority in the House and gain half the Senate. Georgia’s Senate race will be determined in a runoff. Regardless of whoever wins there, Georgia will not produce a very good Senator.
It Was Still a Defeat for the Biden Regime
The mainstream media and the Senile Joe regime is calling this a win. This is a strange take on the matter. One could call it spin, or making lemons out of lemonade. The Democrats simply didn’t lose as badly as they might have. That’s not a real victory. The problems for them remain. The President is cognitively challenged and declining, the border crisis is ongoing, the economy remains under the pressures of inflation, the energy crunch continues, and the war in Ukraine rages. Any of these problems, plus others not yet recognized, could spiral out of control quickly.
The Red Ripple
Much of the hype about a “red wave” refers back to the 1994 midterm elections. Going into that election, the Republicans had held 177 seats; afterwards, they held 230. It also ended 44 years of Democratic control of the US House of Representatives. This was a hard act to follow. Today, the United States is more polarized, and there are Democrats who will turn out no matter how bad things seem. Additionally, in the 2022 midterms the Republicans failed to put forward a genuine plan for change.
Victor Davis Hanson warned back in August that a big red wave might not materialize:
Republicans seem confident nonetheless because of the dismal 40% approval ratings of Biden and his even less popular agenda. Crime is out of control. The Left blew up the southern border. Biden has waged war on energy production and deliberately spiked gas costs. Foreign policy is in shambles. Racial relations are scary. Historically, presidents are shellacked in their first midterms. So, there should be a Republican tsunami. But will there be? So far, the Republicans have not nationalized congressional races with a uniform Contract with America, an agenda that they will seek to enact the moment they take Congress. If all Republican candidates run on what the Left has done to America in less than two years and offer a systematic corrective, they will win. If they get bogged down in the 24-hour news cycle they will flounder.
Thus, the Republicans foundered but still won a victory that was slightly fewer than 230 seats. Regardless, the mainstream media is crowing, savoring what is still a loss. Why this happened will become clear in time. There are three likely culprits for the red ripple.
The first is that the media might have hyped a pending red wave as part of a tactical strategy alongside using false polling numbers. It is a known political contrivance for them to say the election will go one way or the other in order to turn out voters who think their side will lose and suppress those who are certain of a win so they don’t bother to go to the polls. Phyllis Schlafly pointed out this trick in her book A Choice Not an Echo. During the 1948 election, Republican Thomas Dewey was predicted to win by the press and pollsters — and ended up losing.
The second was political karma. There is a faction within the Republican Party that is hostile to the Roe v. Wade decision. They got the case overturned after decades of dedicated activism. All victories in battle come with a price, however. The price paid this time was a Republican victory that could have been much greater.
Where I vote, Democrat and Republican volunteers give out a handbill listing their party’s local candidates to each voter. I usually take both parties’ handbill, although this year I didn’t bother, I just grabbed the Republican handbill. After I voted I sat in my car and watched the people coming and going. One can tell the Republicans from the Democrats; there’s a specific look to each. One woman walked by with a determined look on her face; under normal circumstances I’d have taken her for a Republican, but she took the Democratic handbill.
Since the sexual revolution, courtship rituals have changed. Women can’t “wait until marriage”; they must play a game of holding out for a time and then yielding sexually as part of a campaign to win a committed husband. This strategy is risky. Birth control can fail and the man might not commit regardless. Abortion is therefore the final recourse should things go badly. This is the world we live in. There are plenty of women out there who recognize this philosophically, or who have themselves experienced this problem.
Third, it is well known that the party in the White House normally loses Congress in the midterms. This party usually looks at this fatalistically. The Democrats took this into account and worked hard.
Sexualizing the Hijab: A Sign of Victory in the War on Terror?
There’s recently been some excitement over Nabeela Syed, who won a state election in Illinois. Syed wears a hijab. This is, of course, an example of the Great Replacement, but it is also an example of liberal fashion and has happened before. Red Indian styles became fashionable after the Indian Wars ended and the danger passed. In the 1970s, Red Indians were the king of cool in popular culture and they were sympathetically portrayed in the media. The Japanese and Vietnamese were also fetishized in the 1980s.
This liberal fashion won’t last, however. Red Indians stopped being cool; this fetish for hijabs will also abate. It is likewise questionable whether or not the danger of Islamic terror has actually passed. Should America experience another series of Islamic attacks, as were common in 2015, politicians wearing hijabs will be in trouble.
Regardless, one can’t help but notice that there is a sexualization of the hijab going on. Notice that Muslim men with beards aren’t bothering to run for election. Is this some sort of form of symbolic mass rape by a victorious army? After all, the fake Red Indian Sacheen Littlefeather did pose topless for Playboy.
The Victory of White Advocacy
The best thing to come out of this election is that Liz Cheney is out of Congress. Cheney was the daughter of the neoconservative Vice President Dick Cheney, who was an advocate of American wars for Israel. Her defeat in the Wyoming primary this summer, and her challenger’s subsequent election to Congress, is an enormous win for America First white advocates. And for their part, isolationist Congressmen such as Marjorie Taylor Greene kept their seats.
In Wisconsin, Senator Ron Johnson won on a “racist appeal.” Stephen Miller also produced “racist” ads in Georgia. These ads were negatively commented upon in the mainstream media, but they caused no outcry among the public. The fact that explicit racial appeals took place at all is notable: It is a sign that our message can influence politics.
I’ve used the Marxist smear word of “racist” in order to economize words. White advocacy is a morally correct position. White Americans are in trouble, and I wish to emphasize the fact that this is now part of the political conversation — and this message achieved victories. Blake Masters ran and lost – unfortunately — on pro-white appeals, but his rival in Arizona was an incumbent, an astronaut, and also an assimilated American-majority white. Blake’s campaign was uphill all the way. That his pro-white appeal was exploited at all is still a win for us.
There were victories for old-stock Americans in Pennsylvania and Virginia, too. In Pennsylvania, John Fetterman won against a dual-citizen Turk who’d served in the Turkish army. Peter Brimelow wrote of Oz, “He’s also a Republican primary candidate for United States Senator from Pennsylvania . . . and Turkish dual citizen. His full name is Mehmet Cengiz Öz, which means that he’s named after the Prophet Mohammed and Genghis Khan.” Fetterman is now cognitively challenged after a stroke, but his win is a symbolic win for American-majority whites, and not only for the Right.
I mention this because in 1866, Captain William Judd Fetterman was killed along with his entire command during the Indian Wars. Captain Fetterman had roots in Pennsylvania. Is he related to John Fetterman? I don’t know, but it could be significant.
In Virginia, Abigail Spanberger (née Davis) won a race against a woman from El Salvador named Yelsi Vega. Spangberger carefully positioned herself as a moderate, didn’t vote for Nancy Pelosi to be Speaker of the House, and was part of a bi-partisan group that vainly fought against the border crisis.
Two other non-white Republican candidates also lost. Sub-Saharans George Logan and Jennifer-Ruth Green were put up as candidates in mostly white, highly Republican districts. Had there been white, American-majority candidates in those districts, the Republicans might have won.
Portland, Oregon has gone downhill since the Black Lives Matter/antifa terror riots of 2020. Today, Portland is marked by homeless encampments and rampant crime, and many good people are fleeing the town. This situation has caused counties in eastern Oregon to vote for secession. They want to join Greater Idaho. Such a change will probably not happen, but it is a metapolitical victory for white advocates regardless.
While the Biden regime is claiming victory, they’ve already started to react in a way that acknowledges that there was a defeat: There is a shakeup ongoing at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Chris Magnus, the Customs and Border Patrol Secretary, resigned after a brief standoff with the DHS Chief. Magnus is being made a scapegoat for the border crisis. It could very well be Magnus’ mismanagement that was the main culprit for this crisis rather than the Jew Alejandro Mayorkas. Regardless of whether this is true, it is a victory we should accept and build upon.

The Worst Week Yet: May 7-13, 2023
I struggle to see how the fraudulent elections of a braindead stroke victim, a CIA asset, and the gaggle of other genocidally anti-White politicians you’ve celebrated here represent “victories” for Whites. The credulous reporting of election results as if they are totally legitimate is also problematic. Further, the Roe v. Wade argument is a red herring; promiscuous babykilling women were always going to vote Democrat. Republicans didn’t lose anything from achieving that milestone, and the pro-life “faction,” as you call it, has always provided the largest share of activists and grassroots organizers to the party. Finally, Liz Cheney was replaced by Liz Cheney’s best friend.
You’re not yet at the point where the issues you point out are no longer Whites problem to solve or even care about. If you think the electoral system is fraudulent, then you still need explain why it’s ‘fraudulent’ in the specific ways that it is. As for the pro-abortion forces as important to organizing, I’m just going to guess and say the just about everywhere their votes count, they’ve already gotten what they want and their state legislatures have already passed maximalist laws banning abortion or passed a constitutional amendment to maximally ban abortion. However, on the national level, abortion maximalism is not a political asset to the GOP. Which I really don’t care about because the GOP must die so that White American may live.
Very interesting and useful commentary. I don’t think the reckoning for anti-abortion maximalists is over yet. Because of the response to the overturning of Roe v Wade in sponsoring travel for abortions (basically), the maximalists are doing to demand a national ban on all forms of abortion. At which point the GOP will become a one-issue party or lose the anti-abortion vote. A smart party would take the opportunity to move into the future without the baggage of abortion maximalists. I’m not betting the GOP will do the smart thing.
I was reading (((Ron Unz’s))) latest anti-White Nationalism appeal (Hispanics and Asians Join the White Political Mainstream) and he had a excerpt from an interview with Michael Hudson where it sure seems like the disaffection with Democratic Party that’s been brewing for decades is still brewing. Could it be the Uniparty is trapped in a pincers movement between the anti-racist-but-pro-worker Left and pro-White politics?
Of all of the post-midterm analyses, this is the most insightful and optimistic I’ve read. Although I have a hard time thinking that Fetterneck’s election is a “symbolic win for American-majority whites.” Other than the Democrat party and his illegal-alien wife, it’s hard to see anyone benefitting from his election besides the violent, melanated criminals he wishes to release from prison.
“Although I have a hard time thinking that Fetterneck’s election is a “symbolic win for American-majority whites.”
A symbolic win only in that such a broken down, pathetic resemblance to a skid row bum will become the disgusting face of the party that elevated him to the Senate. He will be a constant reminder of the utter decadence and corruption of the ruling class. Let’s hope he gets a lot of attention.
The comedic value he will add the the Senate will be fun, for sure.
I am dubious that any of the victories represent victories for whites. Fetterman seems more like a another white male humiliation ritual. It is definitely a great spite to our entire history from the first voyages and settlements to say the moon landing.
I think the Mayorkastein take is also wrong, given how smugly he smirked as Biden announced the great thing that is white replacement. He is probably on a direct line with Barbara Specter and her husband. That he can scapegoat a heritage American so cucked he supports sanctuary cities is just another bit of him wiping his a** on the face of the people who discovered, conquered and built this nation.
A White beat a Brown and an immigrant with a dual passport.
If Fetterman had been the Republican, perhaps you would be more willing to acknowledge that there was value in his win? You might even find yourself sympathetic to his due to his unfortunate stroke while preparing to for his run.
The GOP messed up and assumed that they could Finkelthink their way through another election, relying on the egregiousness of the Democrats to get their snouts in Uncle Sugar’s trough without having to offer anything to their core constituency of working class White men and women.
Isn’t Fetterman Jewish? And he has a radical demonic brown wife. OZ is no good, don’t get me wrong. If I lived in PA I don’t think I’d vote for either, but I would have voted for Mastriano.
I could not find a confirmation that Fetterman is a Jew. Given the climate of Jewish assertion, I’d be inclined to say he’s playing coy about the matter because he’s not Jewish. He’s a ‘progressive’. So is his wife. The point is that the GOP presented an immigrant Brown to run against a White and the White won. Blaming anyone but GOP Donor Class for this turn of events is a mistake. You can be sure they’d be tooting their horns if things went well.
I know a fair number of Penn Staters who were dying to vote for the first time. They are as dump as posts. They truly believe they must vote to save the world from Donald Trump and MAGA who will create The Handmaid’s Tale + The Man In The Castle + pick a Hollywood caricature of the Antebellum South or Till if they don’t save America from this evil. Fetterman did not have a pro-white message. Every single policy of his is anti-white.
What I am saying is, is that I don’t see any evidence that he was chosen by the electorate because he is white. If you are saying Fetterman is a positive because white people weren’t fooled into voting for Oz than I agree with you. But, I can’t agree that Fetterman is a positive. At a time when young white men are coming of age, Fettermans and Bidens as examples of whites in leadership is a disaster, and similarly so because non-whites are emboldened by having these buffoons serve as our most powerful representatives.
Here is a huge negative from the election. Youngkin is a Carlyle guy. That means he is a buddy of Rubenstein – you know the guy who uses Montepelier and Monticello as anti-white, anti-American indoctrination centers and who re-writes American history. That means he makes his money selling out America and feeding on its remains. His Lt. Governor who he loves to trot around to prove he is not racist, is not a dummy. She is openly calling for Trump to step aside. You see what is happening? She is calling for Trump to step aside so Youngkin can step forward into the vacuum. The neo-cons win. Heritage Americans lose.
Strange analysis re: the abortion vote. I think the overturning of roe v Wade energized both liberal and some “conservative” women. I personally know many Republican women who are just as whorish, Godless and demonic as liberal women. Women are much more united and tribal than men— they stick up for each other and womens’ interests. Men need to start doing the same en masse or the female-fueled decadence that is preventing family formation amongst whites (and others) will continue rapidly. We basically have sexual anarchy and de-facto polygamy, with women essentially voting for maximum agency for themselves to opportunistically parasite as they see fit. Abortion is just a proxy for feminist philosophy and gynocentrism.
Repeal the 19th and watch many of the problems that white nationalists complain about get resolved.
I think the salient point is that the pro-abortion women significantly outnumbered the anti-abortion women in the states where that issue was on the table. The problem with the anti-abortion movement is that it has taken an ideological stance in a country were the majority are pragmatists. Even the embrace of Wokeism is a matter of pragmatism for lots of Whites living directly under the Jewish yoke. The purpose of political parties is to win elections, gain power and then use that power to win the next election by rewarding your voters. If you want statesmanship, you need a different system than the 50%+1-winner-takes-all system that currently prevails.
The reality is that pro-abortion forces have already illegalized abortion in every state where they have enough power to do so. That happened within days of the overturning of Roe v Wade. Now their just a obstacle to the GOP winning any election ever again. Which is fine with me, because I think the GOP must die in order that White America may live.
Since so many people have commented on my take on Fetterman I feel I must clarify.
1. It is never good to bring foreigners into a domestic political dispute. Dr. Oz is a foreign Turk with clear dual loyalty red flags.
2. The name “Fetterman” is connected to a white soldier killed in the Indian Wars. The Indian Wars were conflicts waged in favor of white interests. Senator-elect Fetterman is one of our own if only by the connection through that name. Meanwhile he is a good political opponent, especially because he is likely beatable later due to his many flaws.
As far as he shake up at the Department of Homeland Security, what I described above is just the first step in the right direction. The DHS Secretary himself needs to be the next target should the GOP win the house.
The House controls the purse. If the handful of MAGA types decide to make it hard for the GOP to fund various Executive departments, that would have value. They’re not going to win, but it would force the GOP mainstream to openly play the ‘bipartisan’ card to go around populist GOP officers. The mainstream GOP is, I think, sick of ‘bipartisanship’ and all the policy compromises that position entails.
