Why I Don’t Care About America’s Geopolitical Decline

Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, March 22, 2021

The United States faces threats in Europe and the Pacific. In February, President Biden declared “America is back” and “diplomacy is back.”

Over the past two weeks, I’ve spoken with the leaders of many of our closest friends — Canada, Mexico, the UK, Germany, France, NATO, Japan, South Korea, Australia — to being [begin] reforming the habits of cooperation and rebuilding the muscle of democratic alliances that have atrophied over the past few years of neglect and, I would argue, abuse.

He implied that President Trump had destroyed “democratic alliances.” President Trump only wanted European nations to pay their share in NATO. You could argue that Mr. Trump was pro-NATO, because he wanted an actual alliance, rather than a club subsidized by us.

Though journalists and Democrats routinely said President Trump was weak on Russia, it was the Trump Administration that withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). The Trump Administration also imposed new sanctions on Russia throughout the President’s term. It was European nations that weren’t meeting defense spending targets, not the United States. If President Trump really wanted détente with Russia, he failed, and this is another area in which he seemingly couldn’t control his own administration.

New Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is now visiting Europe. Reuters reported that former president Donald Trump had used “harsh language” against NATO and that the Biden Administration “seeks to repair transatlantic ties.” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin III said he is pleased some NATO nations are spending more now. “Naturally, we want this trend to continue, and we want to see every member of the alliance contribute their fair share,” he said. However, without the threat of American withdrawal or at least American pressure — exactly what President Trump did — why should this trend continue?

Germany is showing signs of an independent Russia policy. The main issue between the United States, Europe, and Russia now is the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which would carry gas from Russia to Germany. The Biden Administration may impose sanctions on companies that help build it, which risks a blowup with Berlin. Most Republicans want even sterner measures. Senator Ted Cruz is delaying confirmation of some of President Biden’s officials unless he takes action.

Hostility towards Russia is one of the few issues that unite Republicans and Democrats — along with support for citizenship for illegal immigrants, interference in Syria, keeping troops in Afghanistan, and thwarting China. We can’t count on Republicans or Democrats to stand up for Americans, but we can count on support for invading the world and inviting the world. This combination of an aggressive foreign policy and indifference towards citizens is why some call the current regime the Globalist American Empire (GAE). It may be based in Washington DC, but it has nothing to do with the historic American nation or its interests.

However, what I call the “American Paradox” may doom this “empire.” The empire is run by people who seem to care nothing for the country; it’s built on sand. The Biden Administration gives non-whites preferences over whites, spies on white advocates, is purging the military on ideological and racial grounds, and supports Black Lives Matter. This may play well in the media, but it undermines the empire’s power in two ways.

First, whites have no reason to fight for a government that discriminates against them, replaces them through immigration, and scorns their heritage. Likewise, if America really is plagued by racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other newly invented sins, why should non-whites and leftists support the government? There’s no point at which progressives can say “we’ve won, we are equal.” Blacks support the Democrats, but only if there is a payoff. If there isn’t, they’ll walk away. The Biden Administration’s support is broad (over 50 percent in most polls) but thin.

Leftists always find it hard to be patriotic. There will always be new grievances. Racial differences are permanent because race is not a social construct. We can’t admit that, so we need ever more expansive definitions of “racism” and creative critiques of American society to explain race differences. Will blacks, Hispanics, and other groups sacrifice for a country that academics, journalists, athletes, celebrities, politicians, CEOs, and generals agree is racist?

Serious nations are calling the empire’s bluff. The Russians say American dissidents are seeking Russian citizenship. President Joe Biden recently called President Vladimir Putin a “killer.” In response, President Putin smirkingly challenged Joe Biden to a debate and wished him good health. Joe Biden declined President Putin’s challenge, with the White House spokesperson lamely noting that he was “quite busy.” Turkey is now moving closer to Russia, a bizarre partnership that only American incompetence can explain.

Chinese media and officials are also laughing at America’s hypocrisy. They compared America’s support for rioters in China with repression against the Capitol protesters. There was also an extraordinary spectacle at the first major Chinese-American summit of this administration. Secretary of State Blinken lectured China about the rights of Chinese Muslims, economic coercion against American allies, and China’s threats against Taiwan. The Chinese team, which appeared far more serious and capable, called America weak and immoral. Chinese contempt for the baizuo“white left” was palpable.

Director of the Central Foreign Affairs Commission Yang Jiechi, mostly without notes, gave a powerful 20-minute speech in which he said that “the United States does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to China from a position of strength.” He might as well have slapped the secretary of state in the face. He also said America must not interfere with China’s internal affairs.

The Chinese are clearly learning from American media. Mr. Jiechi added that the United States is “slaughtering” its blacks and blamed Senator Tom Cotton and former president Donald Trump for anti-Asian violence. How can the Biden Administration reply? Claim that America does not oppress blacks?

The Biden Administration is also in no position to rebut the absurdity of blaming Republicans for attacks on Asians. President Biden himself just warned Americans against being “complicit” in anti-Asian violence. He said “hate can have no safe harbor in America.” I assume he doesn’t mean anti-white hate; otherwise we’d really have to clean house.

Republicans are trying to save the empire from itself. Tom Cotton says that the Biden Administration must “adopt a strategy to beat China.” Josh Hawley says the administration is weak. Ted Cruz wants the Olympics to be moved from China. Republicans are clearly preparing to run on the message that Mr. Biden is soft on China.

I wish these “right-wing” politicians cared as much about white Americans as they do for Uyghurs. The Trump Administration, the Biden Administration, and liberal journalists are united in charging China with “genocide” because they are destroying Uyghur identity. China says it is fighting terrorism and extremism. Doesn’t this sound familiar?

Chinese Ambassador to Grenada Zhao Youngchen wrote in June that this was just “de-extremism,” or what we might call deradicalizing. He tweeted in July that the collapse in white birthrates in the United States and Great Britain is similar to what is happening in Xinjiang, the native province of the Uyghurs. “Could it be that these countries are also pursuing a policy of genocide of white people?” he asked. “Absolutely not!”

One can argue that the current System is not consciously trying to eliminate European-Americans. “Deaths of despair” and lower birth rates are unintended consequences of public policy, replacement migration is either not happening or good for us, and “anti-racism” and efforts to destroy “whiteness” are misguided idealism.

Either way, I don’t see why whites must save the Globalist American Empire from itself. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Tom Cotton, and other would-be populists are probably sincere in their desire to defend the Uyghurs. However, their job is not to defend Chinese Muslims, but to defend Americans.

Until we have politicians who care about us, I don’t care about the geopolitical games the government wants to play. I’m glad this decline is happening under Joe Biden, though, so more patriotic Americans aren’t fooled into thinking we have a stake in these squabbles.

Of course, Russia or China won’t “save” us. China is repeating Black Lives Matter propaganda. Vladimir Putin recycles the charges against America you hear on any college campus. He blasts slavery, the treatment of the Indians, and the atomic bombing of Japan. Everywhere, people say that “the other side is the real racist;” even in the Russian protectorate of the Donetsk People’s Republic, I heard Russian and DPR officials say their war was just because Ukraine was run by “fascists” and “Nazis.” Their political vocabulary is trapped in 1945, just like ours.

The Regime’s fights abroad are not our fights. The Regime treats us with contempt. We are not much more than tax slaves and cannon fodder. Why should any nation respect American whites if our own government despises us? Should we therefore celebrate the regime’s failures? If the postwar American order falls, what follows could be worse, but so long as we are subjugated, I’m not sure it matters much whether the orders come from Washington, Beijing, or Moscow.
