That American Renaissance Conference–And the War Against Whites

Peter Brimelow, VDARE, February 2, 2011

I

was brooding over the news that

American Renaissance

had

been

blocked in its attempt

to

find an alternative venue for its conference when my eye

fell on this story:

GOP county

chair resigns after racial controversy,

by Max Brantley,

Arkansas Times, February 2, 2011

“Surprise. John Casteel of

Newport has resigned as Jackson County Republican chair.

This spares the state Republican Party of having to act

on Chairman[Email

him] Doyle Webb’s

vow to seek his removal

by the party executive committee for his “pro-white”

views as a long time member of the Council of

Conservative Citizens, a successor to the White Citizens

Council with a long history of incendiary views on race.

Casteel had earlier refused to quit the group.”

(Link in original, email added).

So the GOP can no longer tolerate

“pro-white views”?

Then how in God’s name does it plan to win elections in

Arkansas, which it currently does by sweeping the white

vote? (Some

68%

of Arkansas whites

voted for the

useless

McCain-Palin ticket in 2008).

I’ve

looked at the Council of Conservative Citizens

website.

There’s stuff there I perhaps wouldn’t post on

VDARE.com, if for no other reason than that I know

Southern Nationalism can irritate other parts of our

readership coalition. But it prominently displays a

powerful “Statement

of Principles

written by our

much-missed

columnist

Sam

Francis.

And I simply don’t see anything that’s even half as

hateful as any single sermon by

Rev.

Jeremiah Wright.

As Steve Sailer has said repeatedly, if you don’t like

the ideas of whites

organizing to defend their interests,

maybe

you

should have thought of that before driving them into a

minority

through immigration policy.

Arkansas is particularly interesting to me partly

because my

wife’s grandparents live there–and

because it was the scene of the atrocious

Pearcy Massacre,

one of those black-on-white home-invasion horror stories

that somehow don’t make it into the local, let alone

national, MSM. (It’s not yet come to trial and our

indefatigable

Nicholas Stix

is

still working on it). What are the odds that state

Republican chairthing Webb has even heard of it?

The

Pearcy Massacre has been repressed by the MSM–just like

the

regular judicial lynching

of

blue

collar whites

for

un-PC protest

(but not death

threats, which stopped the previous

American

Renaissance conference with no response from law

enforcement agencies); Attorney General Holder’s

staggering

claim

that

whites are not protected

by the Obama “Hate Crime” legislation; and, for that matter,

any mention,

outside of the local media, of the current Charlotte

catastrophe.

I sometimes wonder why

American Renaissance‘s genteel Jared Taylor excites this

extraordinary passion. After all, we have it on the

word

of the

$PLC’s Mark Potok (!) that Taylor’s publication

is not

“anti-Semitic”–the allegation that really counts in

current American politics.

American

Renaissance is, in fact, merely devoted to

explicating issues arising in the wake of

The Bell Curve

ournalism that should have taken place in the MSM. I

guess I should ask the

ever-triangulating Mark Krikorian

of the Center for Immigration Studies, who reportedly

now refuses even

to be seen in the same room as Taylor.

“…Land

of the Free

And the Home of the Brave.

Yeah.

I can only

quote

me: “As

I

wrote

after the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords, the left’s

agenda is

repression-because

only through repression can it keep the white majority

cowed long enough to

elect a new people.”

It’s

just all part of the American

nomenklatura‘s

ongoing War against whites.

I

don’t completely

agree with the redoubtable Richard Spencer:

 “I

doubt I’d second Hart’s

admonishment

to mainstream conservatives, “You better defend AmRen

because you’re next!” – and I don’t just say that

because I have little use for the conservative movement.

Why should we conclude that the Left-liberal

establishment, which most definitely does dominate the

culture, would want to destroy

CPAC,

National Review,

and Townhall.com after it’s done with AmRen? My sense is

that Establishment is quite happy with an opposition

that’s not particularly bright or perceptive and that

essentially reaffirms all of its most fundamental

assumptions and beliefs… An opposition like AmRen is

dangerous because it strikes at the heart of matters; no

opposition at all is dangerous because it makes people

wonder.”[Links

But in fact it’s obvious that the libertarian

Koch brothers

had a terrible time at their

fatcat conference

this year–where the demonstrations

far exceeded

anything

American Renaissance

has had to face.

And it’s only going to get worse,

because the

left’s agenda

is

repression.

Maybe the Cato Institute will do a backgrounder!

And

mention American Renaissance!

Nor do I completely agree with

Counter-Currents’

Greg

Johnson’s pessimistic but highly intelligent

analysis

of American

Renaissance’s legal options. I have a very low view

of the judiciary’s

ability to withstand multicultural pressure–but

I still think there’s scope for patriot lawyers.

And

for patriot corporate gadflies. The Charlotte Airport

Sheraton is owned by

Starwood Hotels & Resorts,

which was certainly large enough to withstand local

political pressure. But Starwood is a public company,

which means that any patriot shareholder can ask

questions at its annual meeting. (One director,

Eric Hippeau,

is also Chief Executive Officer of the Huffington Post,

which seems to be developing

quite a tradition

of repression).

I

gather

that the American

Renaissance speakers will be still participating in

an

NPItv.com

version of the conference, although the coffers of

Charlotte may not benefit from their presence. I urge

readers to

sign

up.
