Is America Still Our Country?
Peter Bradley, American Renaissance, July 2, 2021
White advocates have long worried about demographic change, mass immigration, and race differences. Of course, these remain very important, but for many, the realities of life itself have become a more immediate burden. Politicians give tax dollars directly to blacks. Monuments and statues of the white founders are vandalized or come down. Students of all races are taught contempt for whites. A 100-year-old race riot is now called a massacre of blacks even though the violence was a two-way street and may have been started by blacks. A spate of black-on-Asian attacks is called “white supremacy.” These examples are just from late May to early June 2021.
Coca-Cola tells employees to “Be Less White.” College officials claim that “all whites are racist.” Critical race theory (CRT), which teaches that whites are inherently evil and responsible for black people’s failings, is now taught in the military. Christian churches confess that they are “racist” and “too white.” Even conservative denominations support BLM.

All four of the major American sports leagues: National Football League (NFL), Major League Baseball (MLB), National Hockey League (NHL) and the National Basketball Association (NBA) fund and spread BLM propaganda. All the big tech companies promote it.
President Biden claims that “terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to the homeland today,” while BLM and antifa continue to riot and attack people. Mr. Biden proclaimed that the government would give precedence to reopening small businesses hurt by COVID-19 that are owned by blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Indians. Whites can wait and suffer.
Kristen Clarke, a black woman who heads the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, claimed blacks have “superior physical and mental abilities” compared to whites. Utah governor Spencer Cox, a conservative Republican, claims it is not racist for whites to be excluded from college scholarships.
The Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association recently wrote:
Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has — a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which “white” people have a particular susceptibility. . . . Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse. These deformed appetites particularly target nonwhite peoples. . . . There is not yet a permanent cure.”
Whites — even while they are still a majority — have been dispossessed in the nation their ancestors built. And, as a look at Zimbabwe or South Africa tells us, things could get a lot worse. Should whites feel anything but contempt for the United States?
America First or America Last?
It is a shock to many Americans to realize that their country may have become their enemy. This must be harrowing for older whites who fought for the flag and who were taught to love their country. But it isn’t their country anymore.
Patriotism has been falling steadily over the last two decades. Whites still show higher levels than non-whites, who tend to identify instead with their race or a foreign country. But white levels are also declining, particularly among younger whites. Some of this is certainly due to being told their country is racist. But whites are also beginning to realize that the new America is anti-white. What should they feel for such a nation?
Dissidents have been raising this question for some time.
Instauration, a race-realist magazine published from 1975 to 2000, was decidedly anti American — or at least against what America had become. This is from a January 1982 article called “A Majority Lexicon”:
Nationalism. It’s all very well to accent nationalism in a homogeneous society because then nationalism is based on race. But nationalism in a multiracial society is based on geography, history, language, assorted institutions, everything but race. Today, since we are an oppressed people in a country no longer ours, it makes no sense at all for Majority members to be nationalistic. We would simply be supporting a nation that, as far as our interests are concerned, has become a foreign nation. The American nationalist of today is by a perverse twist of history either a knowing or an unknowing internationalist.
Patriotism. A patriot is someone who loves his own country, not someone else’s. Since Majority members no longer have a country, how can they be patriots? They will, of course, be asked to be patriots because their patriotism can be used to help prop up a nation which now belongs lock, stock and barrel to the liberal-minority coalition. If they fall for this line, they will not be patriots but patsies. There was a time in America when patriotism was not the last refuge of a scoundrel, but a fundamental requisite of good citizenship. Today, patriotism is the last refuge of those Majority members stupid enough or corrupt enough to play the enemy’s game.
Instauration editor Wilmot Robertson had already concluded nearly 40 years ago that America was no longer our country. Americans have felt similar feelings of dispossession before.
In 1865, many white Southerners felt so hostile towards the United States that some 20,000 left rather than submit. This poem called “Oh I’m A Good Ol’ Rebel” was written after the war and soon became a popular song:
Oh, I’m a good old rebel,
Now that’s just what I am,
And for this yankee nation,
I do not give a damn.
I’m glad I fought agin’ it,
I only wish we’d won.
I ain’t asked any pardon for anything I’ve done.
I hates the yankee nation
and everything they do.
I hates the declaration of independence, too.
I hates the glorious union,
T’is dripping with our blood.
I hates the striped banner,
and fit it all I could
Over the last few years, a group of young writers has begun to question what Darren Beattie calls the “Globalist American Empire.” Race is not their only focus, but none denies that the establishment despises white people.
These people have podcasts and at least one new online publication, and have succeeded in the face of censorship. Some cannot use their real names for fear of losing their jobs, and they live with threat of antifa attacks.
They see things clearly:

ANTIFA has much in common with ISIS and “Islamo-fascists”
In the sense that neither is precisely an enemy of the US government.
Elements of US government use ANTIFA domestically just like they use ISIS abroad to further geopolitical aims

This is a comment on an article in the Unz Review that sums up what many whites think of their country:
There is no reason for White people to invest in defending or retaining these [American] institutions, ALL of them: Colleges and Universities, Media, the Military, Law Enforcement, the Justice System, Representative Government, Corporations, and more. They are all CORRUPTED BEYOND REPAIR AND REFORM. They are all explicitly anti-White. They are all committed as a matter of religious morality to worshiping Rapper Americans as the holy racial redeemers from the sin of Whiteness. And they are all committed to putting this into action by eliminating Whites completely. They have stated this many times. Supporting these institutions, wanting to reform them, trying to save them is folly.
What should we do? Some still want to work within the system. A few politicians speak up (mildly) for whites: Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase, Delaware Senate candidate Lauren Witzke, and Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks. Even one liberal Democrat, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, recently denounced the mayor of Chicago’s “blatant anti-white racism.”
White parents are starting to fight anti-whiteness in schools. Loudoun County, Virginia, about an hour’s drive from Washington D.C., has the highest median income in the country. It is not a hotbed of conservatism. When the Loudoun County school board decided to add critical race theory (CRT) to the curriculum, Loudoun parents organized a protest that included lawsuits, a recall effort of members of the school board, media campaigns and appearances, and a website that explains the anti-white nature of CRT.
This set the school board on its heels. If whites in Loudoun County can do it, whites anywhere can.
Richard Hanania, president of the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology (CSPI), recently advocated repealing certain civil rights laws:
The US seems to elect some of the most conservative politicians in the Western world, but has perhaps the wokest institutions. Civil rights law makes all major institutions subject to the will of left-wing bureaucrats, activists, and judges at the expense of normal citizens.
Now that “woke” ideology has overtaken government and most institutions, Mr. Hanania believes it is important to attack the source of wokeness: “Rolling back overbroad interpretations of the Civil Rights Act and previous Executive Orders won’t change the culture overnight for a movement that has let things get this far. But that is the obvious place to start and would at least give conservatives a chance in the fight for institutions.”
But what if the system can’t be saved?
There is no rational reason to think that anti-white animosity will stop with discrimination in hiring and government benefits. Already, American elites are on the hunt for new ways to entrench the legal inferiority of whites and in particular white men. A Tuesday segment on NPR discussed how America’s entire tax structure needs to be changed to make sure that white people pay more in taxes. Why? No reason is needed. Taking more from whites is an end unto itself.
So, what is to be done? The essential first step is to stop being in denial. If you’re one of the tens of millions of straight white American men, you aren’t at risk of becoming a second-class citizen. You are not in danger of becoming a legally entrenched scapegoat for the nation’s problems. You are one right now. Every college, every corporation, and every charitable non-profit in American life was already biased against you. Now, the very laws of the country aim at your marginalization as well.
How to beat the system?
So go wild. When reparations come to your town or your institution, do everything you can to get a cut. When your children apply to college, shave their heads and give them a tan and claim they are proud of their partial African heritage . . . .
If you can’t get away with that, claim Hispanic lineage from Mexico or, better yet, Central America. Hispanic isn’t even a real race, so literally anybody can qualify. So what if you can’t prove it? Most people don’t have detailed family trees. Your family lore says it’s true. If family lore was enough to launch Elizabeth Warren’s career, it’s good enough for you.
But what about permanent solutions? There are increasingly high-profile calls for separation or secession from the United States, and not all are from the Dissident Right.
The American Mind is a mainstream conservative publication of the Claremont Institute. In “The Separation,” the editors note:
We present the following pseudonymous essay as an example of what thoughtful people of good will are increasingly thinking and saying in private about the future of America. The author is not a young radical or part of some strange new online intellectual sub-group. On the contrary, the following was written by someone who served as an officer in the United States military, worked in Congress and on presidential campaigns, is founder and principal of a private partnership, and holds multiple Ivy League degrees.
The author uses the pen name “Rebecca” which was the only pseudonym Abraham Lincoln ever used, and describes the mood of many Americans:
Contempt is a combination of disrespect and hate. A recent study found levels of contempt between Republicans and Democrats similar to that between Israelis and Palestinians. Plato said the perfect state was one in which the citizens weep and rejoice over the same things. Recently, an attempt was made to assassinate two L.A. County Sheriffs. A demonstration outside their hospital wished for their deaths.
We feel like two people because we are two people. The signs are unmistakable. Our most divisive issue is our symbol of unity. Factions like BLM and blue lives matter have their own flags. Our heritage, revered by half of America, is being vandalized and toppled by the other half. Our most popular sport now begins with two anthems.
America is like an old married couple. The kids are gone. In a long, imperceptible process, we have grown apart. We do different things, like different things, and have become different people. Habit, inertia and memories of our past obscure the implications. Clear eyes see what we do not — a separation is as sad as it is inevitable. The hard question is not, ‘how do these two Americas live together?’ They do not. The hard question, the right question, is: ‘how do they live apart?’
In June, Michael Anton, a senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, and a former national security official in the Trump Administration published an article in The American Mind that proposed letting counties and regions unhappy with their current state governments join another state:
Reds, increasingly, are catching on. They know the game is rigged, that they cannot win, and the veneer of their participation and consent is a sham. . . . Every objection to Blue despoilation is now openly ascribed to “white supremacy.” Don’t want to be late for work because regime-favored “protesters” are illegally blocking an intersection? White supremacy! Object to being beaten on the streets? White supremacy! Want to see the laws enforced equally and impartially? White supremacy!
What if the rulers of the U.S. do not allow separation?
If there is not [separation] — or, to be more precise, if the ruling class refuses to allow reorganization to proceed, refuses so much as to give it a fair hearing — then one day in the not-so-distant future we will look back with fondness to a time when ‘secession’ as a future prospect meant only redrawing state lines.
Shortly before his death in February, Rush Limbaugh seemed to offer support for separation to his 20 million listeners. In response to a caller who asked if conservative ideas have a future in the United States, Mr. Limbaugh replied: “I actually think that we’re trending toward secession. It cannot go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.”
These are not calls for racial separation, but for conservative areas to be free from leftist domination. However, a red-state America would be mostly white, and few non-whites would want to live there.
The best-thought-out expression of the need for racial separation comes from Jared Taylor in a three-part video series on American Renaissance. Mr. Taylor explained why separation is desperately needed and sketched out how it could work:
Whites are angry and bewildered. After half a century of civil rights, affirmative action, welfare, minority role models, quotas, a black president, and now a black vice president, we still keep hearing that whites are miserable racists and that our country is nothing but a series of crimes. In their bones, millions and millions of whites want their own culture and community. They have a deep yearning to live with people who share their values, aspirations, and way of life.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a community or a state – or a country – in which you didn’t have to apologize for being white? To go to college and not be told that you are a lower form of life?
So, wake up, white people. There are millions of people who hate you, who think you’re immoral and unsalvageable. Well, if we’re so terrible, let’s work out some way to leave them on their own. Some marriages are so bad, it’s better to end them. In divorce, it’s called having irreconcilable differences. In America, we need a divorce. We need to stop trying to achieve the impossible.
How nice would it be to have a government that speaks for your people and not against them! There are probably no Americans alive today who can remember any US official defending whites or even saying anything positive about us.
Emigration is another option for whites who see no future in the US. Better to be a stranger in another country than in your own land. Of course, many white nations are suffering the same fate. Moving to Canada, England, France, or even Australia may be like jumping from the frying pan into the fryer. But Eastern Europe is still European. Another Unz Review commenter, Thomas Marvolo Riddle, plans to escape:
I’m heading to Eastern Europe in a few weeks. I’m not going to start a family in a culture that will demonize my children and brainwash them into disdaining their own kind and themselves. Things will not get better here. Socially, economically and spiritually; the trends in the West have been all been careening sharply downward for decades and decades. There is absolutely no logical reason to believe this trend will not continue to intensify over the near and long term.
Russia is seeing increased interest in emigration from whites, according to Russian blogger and author Andrei Martyanov:
We may expect more people . . . moving to Russia and I mean full-blown ‘Westerners,’ people of European descent.
We still don’t know real numbers of such people moving to Russia but Maria Zakharova is on record during one of her briefings recently saying that she personally is besieged by inquiries about and requests for allowing to move to Russia from people from the US, UK, EU and, as this video shows, Australia. Well, Boers are already settling in Buryatia.
In April, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov criticized, “aggression against white people, white U.S. citizens.” In 2018, Vladimir Putin warned against a suicidal sentiment found in every white nation outside of Eastern Europe: “That migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants have to be protected.”
As affirmative action and “diversity” make it harder and harder for whites to find jobs in America, China may offer an increasingly attractive alternative for unwanted American whites:
American company men may find a savior in China Inc. As corporations try to make their ranks more ethnically representative, many experienced — if white and older — males will find themselves without a job. Chinese companies, deterred from acquiring U.S. firms with valuable intellectual property, can recruit their discarded human capital instead.
Some are thinking way outside the box: “All right, here’s the plan. We buy a bunch of Bitcoin, open the US borders, most of the population of El Salvador moves here, we mass migrate to El Salvador, buy property, take over the government, and then vote for no further immigration.”
It is impossible to think of America apart from the whites who created and sustained it for more than 200 years. A United States made up of and run by an assortment of blacks, Asians, Muslims and Hispanics is not and will never be America. They can dominate a landmass that may or may not still be called the United States, but in their hearts, most non-whites know that the true Americans are white Americans. No doubt that is why they desecrate our monuments.
Whites built every institution in the United States and created a nation that at one time had the world’s greatest economy, armed forces, and technology. People came and still come to attend universities created by white people for white people. Whites invented television, cars, the airplane, trains, the telephone, computers and made the scientific and medical discoveries that make modern life possible. The infrastructure of America (much of it now crumbling) was all put there by whites.
Our music, our books, and our movies were popular throughout the world. Our living standards, freedoms, and way of life were the envy of the world, and almost every non-white would have moved to the US given the chance. In 1965, they got that chance with the passage of the Hart-Celler Act, which started mass immigration from the Third World. A nearly 90 percent white nation in 1965 is now only 60 percent white (2020 estimates) and falling. Not only are whites declining in numbers, we have also been demoted to second-class status at best.
The United States many of us knew is gone. It’s not our country anymore. But there are still more than 190 million white Americans. As anti-white animus increases, no doubt many more will awaken to racial reality. Since whites are the only ones who seem to care about the country — as opposed to the benefits or handouts they can extract — decline followed by collapse seems inevitable.
A recent article in Taki’s Magazine by “The Zman” compares our country to the old Soviet Union:
One of the remarkable things about the collapse of the Soviet Union is that it just melted away without a struggle. It was as if everyone could not think of a reason to keep it going. The reason for that is the trust in the key institutions had drained away. There was no reason to defend them or participate in them. The people running the institutions had used up all of the social trust to maintain their positions. When it was gone, the institutions collapsed.
Something similar is happening in America. To those white civic nationalists, the people running the system now look like gangsters. They steal everything that is not nailed down, and they corrupt everything they touch. . . . Like the Soviet system after the Afghan war, the American empire is now running on fumes. The end is inevitable.
Not that long ago, to many of us, the end of the United States would have seemed an unthinkable catastrophe. Now, an implosion like the collapse of the Soviet Union may offer a ray of hope and the possibility of a future for our people.
