Confronting an uncomfortable truth


I recently finished reading through Gregory Hood's Waking Up from the American Dream, which is basically a white nationalist's perspective on the current state of politics in the United States of America. The author might be known to you as one of the contributors over at Counter-Currents Publishing- no, not the Leftist whacktivists who are completely cuckoo-for-Cocoa-Puffs about your usual left-wing causes celebre, these guys.

The book makes for some decidedly uncomfortable reading if you are of the rainbows-and-unicorns persuasion with respect to race and culture in America, and especially if you subscribe to the standard conservative view of America as being an exceptional proposition nation built upon the immortal words of the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness...
Methodically and ruthlessly, the author takes a sledgehammer to every last one of the propositions that make up the American Dream: that it is indeed possible for immigrants to simply come on over and become Americans; that any and all races can peaceably coexist with the white majority that built this country; and that white people themselves are anything other than targets for systematic elimination and degradation by their own government.

And he is absolutely merciless in his savage treatment of the mainstream "conservative" movement, as he tears it to shreds for not having "conserved" a damn thing. This is a recurring theme throughout the collection of articles presented in this book, wherein Mr. Hood is unsparing and withering in his criticism of the National Review conservatives who insist on going along to get along, and who have as a result inevitably and categorically failed to "[stand] athwart history, yelling 'STOP!'".

The book is well worth reading for many reasons, including the fact that it forces even alt-Right types like us, who accept many of the things that he is talking about as axiomatic, to face very uncomfortable ideas. In my specific case I particularly disliked his assertion that American Christianity basically has nothing to offer anymore, and that the disastrous state of modern American culture is in fact the logical outcome of the universalist nature of the Christian creed.

It almost seems as if Mr. Hood is arguing in favour of secularism and atheism, when any halfway reasonably informed member of the alt-Right will immediately recognise and articulate the fact that, wherever secularism has taken root, disaster and tragedy has inevitably followed in its wake.

But the main point to note is that the catastrophe that is America's contemporary culture is a direct and entirely logical result of a severe misinterpretation of the Founding itself. And it is that misinterpretation that I intend to expand upon here.

A Founding Betrayed by its Descendants

The first thing to note is that America, whether you like it or not, is a nation built by white people.

You could argue until you are blue in the face that America was built on the backs of slaves. You'd be wrong, of course, given that both black and white slaves existed in the American colonies up until the barbaric practice was outlawed, and given that many of the thousands upon thousands of slaves sent to the colonies were in fact white Scotsmen.

And then there is the fact that, while roughly 388,000 black slaves were sent specifically to North America- I'm not talking about the rest of the New World, just the territories that eventually became the United States of America and Canada- over one million white slaves were sold by Barbary Coast slavers to Muslim nations over a roughly similar period as the one in which the American slave trade took place.

Kind of puts that whole "slavery" thing into perspective, doesn't it? Indeed, such a thing almost makes you wonder why February is named "Black History Month" in the US, given that the sheer number of white slaves historically sold to both Islamic caliphates and European colonies far exceeds the number of black slaves sold to the United States of America.

(If anything, Islamic nations should be held accountable for the tens of millions of black Africans that they have sold into slavery over the past 14 centuries. Slavery was, and still is, very much a trait of Islamic government.)

Having summarily dealt with the contentious but extremely badly informed arguments about black contributions to America, whether voluntary or otherwise, let us accept the fact that without white people, America would not be what it is today.

The plain truth is that just about everything that is good and great about modern America exists because of whites.

The entire reason why everyone and his cousin in India, China, Mexico, Brazil, and pretty much everywhere else wants to come to America and live and work here and seek the American Dream is because white people made it possible to do so.

It doesn't really matter where you start in American history. The same conclusion stares you in the face.

The Declaration of Independence was written by men who considered themselves to be free-born white Englishmen, and who were outraged at what they perceived to be the tyrannical actions of their sovereign.

The Constitution was written and ratified to secure the same rights of free-born Englishmen, and was informed by the rich legacy of the British Constitution, itself a product of over a thousand years of thought and action.

The first waves of immigrants that came through were almost entirely white Europeans. Whether they were Danes, Swedes, Germans, Scots, Italians, or Spaniards, they were originally Europeans and they mostly came from a shared cultural heritage that stretched all the way back to the Roman Republic- and in some cases, earlier than that.

That was true of the first great wave of American immigration, comprised as it was of English and Dutch Protestants. It was just about equally true of the second great wave, made up as it was of continental Europeans.

But it has not been true of the third great wave, which has taken place since the passage of the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization [sic] Act. That wave has been made up primarily of immigrants from Central and South America, Asia, and the Middle East.

These cultures are not European. They do not share the same values as the immigrants who came over and settled here. They are not white.

The Latin American imports, in particular, are among the fastest-growing segments of the "American" population. In the process, they are making a nation created, built, and maintained by whites, into a nation that is non-white.

And if you insist on making America non-white, by logical extension, you are insisting on making America not-America.

You don't have to be a neo-Nazi reading the Daily Stormer every day and screaming white-power slogans at skinhead rallies to know these things. You don't even have to like these truths very much. You simply have to accept them- and if you can't do that, then you're really not going to like what follows next.


The Breaking

Now at this point the usual mainstream cuckservative or liberal retort- usually also expressed in tones bordering on the hysterical- is that America is a nation of immigrants, founded by settlers from England who came over and established colonies, and then later expanded upon by European immigrants who came over and enriched America's cultural heritage. And of course, those immigrants came over and assimilated and became Americans.

Therefore, anybody can come over and become an American, as long as he or she adheres to the American creed of hard work, obedience to the law, and fidelity to the Constitution.

This assertion is usually followed by accusations of bigotry and racism directed toward anyone who might dare to disagree with such eminently sensible ideas.

Problem is, of course, that these things simply are not true. The "proposition nation" never was. It doesn't work- if it did, one could just as easily let everyone in South America, China, India, and Africa come over to settle in America and expect that the American system and way of life would simply carry on without issues.

But it does not. We know this after seeing more than 59 million immigrants come into the US since the passage of the Hart-Celler Act referenced above. Anyone with eyes can tell that entire areas of the country that have seen large numbers of immigrants come in, have experienced significant changes to their quality of life and surroundings as a result.

I've seen this myself- and remember, I am writing this as a non-white, non-European, legal resident alien worker in the United States. I can see it in the part of the country that I live in with my own two eyes.

All you have to do is go about three miles west of where I live, and you'll run into an area that is heavily Black and Hispanic. Unsurprisingly, it is a very different vibe out there than it is in the quiet, mostly white and Asian, area where I am.

The same is true in other parts of America too. One of the most extreme contrasts can be found by taking a trip out to Arizona.

Apparently, in the town of Nogales, Arizona, you can drink the tap water- or at least, you used to be able to, back before the wells surrounding the area became contaminated. But in the town of Nogales, Sonora, under Mexican control and literally right next door, you can't.

Or take black-run America, and contrast it with white-run America. Hands up if you've ever visited any of these cities: Detroit, MI; Newark, NJ; Trenton, NJ; Camden, NJ; New Brunswick, NJ; The Bronx, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Baltimore, MD; Washington, D.C.

Every one of these cities has a substantial or even a majority black population. And every single one of them has some serious issues with crime, pollution, and civic disorder. Chicago is nowadays known as "Chiraq" simply because it is so dangerous. Washington, D.C., is actually pretty safe and orderly as long as you're in the "top half" of the diamond formed by the Beltway, but the moment you're in the southern half of the city, you're taking some serious risks with your safety.

And then contrast these places with white-run America. The best examples that I have seen during my time here thus far are in Vermont and Pennsylvania.

No matter where you go in America, you will find that even in the poorest parts of the country, white America is mostly law-abiding, safe, clean, civic-minded, and unprepossessing. White Americans can be loud, obnoxious, and closed-minded- and yet they are also far more capable of building and maintaining civilisation than their little brown and black brothers from foreign lands, even those who have been in America for generations.

It doesn't take a genius-level intellect to work out that if you insist on demonising and destroying the people who built America- mostly white, mostly European, mostly with a shared cultural heritage- then America itself will be destroyed. And that is precisely what we are seeing today.

Actually, while we're on the subject of intellect...


The IQ Elephant

One of the unspoken realities about race relations in the United States of America is that there are some serious issues posed by the considerable gaps in IQ between various racial groups in this country.

Here are a few graphs that illustrate the sheer scale of the gap:



The graphs clearly prove out what anecdotal evidence already tells us to be true: not all races are equally smart.

By extension, not all races are equally well suited to building civilised societies.

That this has civilisational consequences should be immediately obvious simply by looking at the states of the civilisations built by each of the racial groups noted above.

Starting at the highest possible level, we note that Africans have the lowest average IQ and the most densely clustered distribution out of the low-IQ groups. One only has to observe the visible differences between sub-Saharan Africa's current state and, say, Estonia's, to note that even imperial rapine and plunder cannot possibly explain away the vast differences in outcomes.

Parenthetically, it is often extremely difficult for white Americans and Europeans to accept the fact- well established through a number of studies- that Black Africans have an average IQ that would be considered to be the point of mental retardation in the West. Whites observe that the black folk of their acquaintance are affable, charming, and outgoing, thus they discount the idea that blacks have sub-normal intelligence as preposterous. Turns out, though, that these two character traits are not mutex.

We see also that East Asians have significantly higher IQ distributions than South Asians and Southeast Asians. Again, this is not surprising for anyone who has spent significant amounts of time in, say, India and Indonesia (which, by the way, I have).

And we see that Europeans are the next highest ranked group in terms of IQ. Once again, this has consequences for the quality and durability of the civilisations that this group builds. One only need visit majority-white American and European cities- or even Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia- to understand just how well European civilisation has worked out over the past four thousand years of its existence, in various permutations and combinations.

Finally, we note that the gap between white and black America isn't merely an anthropological oddity; it is in fact a vast, yawning chasm of achievement and intellect.

I say again, you do not have to be a racist or a neo-Nazi to make these connections. I am not white. I am not European. I am not even Western by birth, even though I've lived in Western nations for better than half of my life. These things simply are what they are, and no amount of dissimulation and lying will change them.

Monocultural Nations from Multicultural Empires

So where do these observations, however painful and uncomfortable, leave us now?

It should be plainly obvious to any reasonably honest mind that white America is under siege. From all sides- including, appallingly, the voices of supposed "mainstream conservatism"- there are now calls for whites to be exterminated, for their communities to be destroyed, and for their way of life to be annihilated.

This is madness.

If America insists on attempting to rid itself of white people, it will cease to be America- that much should be obvious. But if America means order, stability, peace, fidelity to the law, and all of the other myriad blessings of civilisation, then it is the height of lunacy to argue that white people should be marginalised and even destroyed, and then argue in the very same breath that those who replace white Americans will then be able to maintain and even enhance the civilisation that white America has created.

The conclusion is stark and inescapable: America as we know it, as we dream of it, as we want it to be, is not a multi-ethnic society with many cultures sitting together and singing kumbaya. The America that everyone wants to work and live in is largely white- and if we get rid of whites, as so many politicians and immigration advocates are arguing, then by definition, we get rid of America too.

What will be left over will not be a country worth living in- because it won't be a country. It will simply be pockets of rapidly decaying civilisation surrounded by vast stretches of wilderness and even outright savagery.

Given the state of things today, I wager that if the Founders could see what their descendants have done to the nation that they fought so hard to build, they would quite likely have abandoned the entire idea of secession. King George III may have been somewhat mad and more than a bit stupid, but he was never this batshit insane.

  1. so, as a non-white, non-american...

    What exactly is your dog in this fight?
    Not attacking you, just curious as to how this captured your attention... It would be a bit like me fighting for more Beyonce on BET.

    Or is that worthy of a whole 'nother article?

    1. It's a perfectly valid question and one that I have no issues answering. You're right, though, the answer is probably worthy of a full post in its own right.

      The short version is that my answer is split into two parts- philosophical and personal.

      The philosophical aspect has to do with searching for Truth. Sometimes- actually, quite often- this search leads me to some uncomfortable places. But that is the nature of the truth. One doesn't have to like it. One simply has to accept it for what it is when the facts inescapably point to its existence.

      The personal aspect has to do with the way that I feel about America. I've never faced discrimination or hostility from white folk here. I feel like I owe this country and its people a debt for the fact that I've been permitted to come here, live quietly, make money, and do mostly what I please. As such, even though I'm originally from a British colony- and one that the Brits took full advantage of, in every way- I have no issues with white people.

      So the Beyonce analogy is a bit flawed, since she and her cronies on BET seem to be openly hostile to whites. In my case, however, whites have rarely, if ever, shown themselves to be hostile to me.

  2. Well, that makes you from one of many places... Hong Kong,(Southeast asia), India, or Africa.

    Since you are not white, and you are clearly spoken, I can cross off Africa. Since you are not utterly arrogant, convinced that everything in America is utterly inferior, I can cross India off the list.

    Considering your interest in decent, albeit loud music, I am guessing you might have epicanthic folds. One of the many people who is living proof that even the most 'disparaged' non-white races in America is not affected by any sort of 'white privilege.

    To be fair, I have NEVER had a problem with assimilated foreigners... but when I see chinatown, the jewish Ghetto, or other enclaves, I become somewhat enraged at these people taking advantage of our protection and economic opportunities while refusing to assimilate.

  3. Since you are not white, and you are clearly spoken, I can cross off Africa. Since you are not utterly arrogant, convinced that everything in America is utterly inferior, I can cross India off the list.

    I actually am from India- originally from the northeast of the country. But I grew up in very Westernised and Americanised environments, lived in Australia and Singapore, and went to London for university.

    I'm about the least "Indian" Indian you'll ever come across. Most people think I'm either Australian or British because of my accent. I don't look, walk, talk, eat, or drink like an Indian, I don't observe their pagan religious ceremonies, and I don't vote in their elections despite my citizenship.

    It is perhaps because of this background that I share your disdain for those who refuse to assimilate. I've lived in London twice and both times I could see how the Muslim immigrants from Pakistan and other Islamic nations made NO effort whatsoever to blend in. They created their own little enclaves into which white English folk were made to feel very much unwelcome, insisted on having their own squalid way of life recreated, and refused to adapt to the realities of a modern Western society.

    I didn't, and don't, think much of such people either.
