Jared Taylor’s ‘White Identity’

Greg Johnson, Counter-Currents Publishing, May 13, 2011

White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century, by Jared Taylor. New Century Books, 2011, 342 pp.; $24.95 (soft cover)

Reading through Jared Taylor’s splendid new book White Identity, I found myself thinking again and again of Allan Bloom’s 1987 book The Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students. In content, the books could hardly be more different, even though both take aim at reigning liberal illusions. But The Closing of the American Mind surprised everyone by becoming a best-seller, in spite of its intellectually challenging style and serious, politically incorrect message. White Identity is a similarly weighty and sobering book, and if America has any hope of survival, it should enjoy a similar popularity.

White Identity

The aim of White Identity is to convince intelligent whites that racial “integration” and “diversity” are not sources of strength and enrichment but of inevitable conflict and suffering, because racial consciousness and preferring one’s own race over others are rooted in human nature. Thus they cannot be eradicated, and they can be ignored only at one’s own risk. Whites, however, have made a cult of ignoring and suppressing their racial consciousness, based on the belief that white “racism” (and only white racism) is the source of racial conflict and the suffering and backwardness of other races. Thus the eradication of white racism (and only white racism) will be sufficient to create a society in which all the different races and cultures can mingle in an atmosphere of tolerance and harmony.

Taylor’s audience and source materials are primarily American, but his lessons apply to all white nations where such notions have become prevalent since the Second World War.

The first three chapters of White Identity, “The Failure of Integration,” “The Myth of Diversity–Institutions,” and “The Myth of Diversity–Daily Life” offer an overwhelming factual and logical refutation of the ideas that racial integration, diversity, and multiculturalism are possible to achieve, or good for society even if they could be achieved.

The fourth chapter, “The Science of Human Nature,” offers a masterfully clear and concise summary of the scientific explanation for why racial integration and diversity will inevitably fail. I think that Taylor is wise to focus here entirely on “Genetic Similarity Theory,” which explains the universality of consciousness of genetic similarity and difference (race being one form of such differences) and preference for those who are genetically similar over those who are genetically different.

In short, Taylor deals with the science of racial difference, not the science of racial inequality. Even if the races were all equal in their genetic capacities, they would still be different, aware of those differences, and inclined to prefer their own over strangers. Taylor thereby sidesteps making invidious comparisons among the races, as well as the dead end of cognitive elitism, which is different from and incompatible with racial nationalism. (Cognitive elitists love intelligence, not their race, which contains dumb as well as smart people.)

Chapters five, six, and seven–“Black Racial Consciousness,” “Hispanic Consciousness,” and “Asian Consciousness”–deal with the robust racial consciousness of America’s three principal non-white groups. Reading these chapters will be a very depressing experience for white liberals, because the inevitable conclusion is that no matter how hard they strive to see the world from a race-blind, universal perspective, non-whites will simply not reciprocate. Thus the white liberal dream of a post-racial world will founder on the rock of non-white racial consciousness, which if anything is only growing stronger as American society becomes more diverse (something that would be predicted by Genetic Similarity Theory). It is another masterstroke to construct an argument for the suicidal futility of multiculturalism on the foundation of reciprocity, a value that deeply resonates with all whites.

Chapter eight, “White Racial Consciousness,” deals with the downfall of white racial consciousness in America. Throughout most of American history, up until the 1950s and 1960s, white racial consciousness was perfectly healthy, meaning that it was in keeping with human nature and the requirements for long-term racial and cultural survival and flourishing. Taylor sums up this consciousness as follows:

White Americans believed race was a fundamental aspect of individual and group identity. They believed people of different races differed in temperament, ability, and the kind of societies they built. They wanted America to be peopled by Europeans, and thought only people of European stock could maintain the civilization they valued. They therefore considered immigration of non-whites a threat to whites and to their civilization. It was common to regard the presence of non-whites as a burden, and to argue that if they could not be removed from the country they should be separated from whites socially and politically. Whites were strongly opposed to miscegenation, which they called “amal¬gamation.”

Taylor summarizes the post–World War II consensus about race as follows:

Race is an insignificant matter and not a valid criterion for any purpose–except perhaps for re¬dressing wrongs done to non-whites. The races are equal in every respect and are therefore interchangeable. It thus makes no difference if a neigh¬borhood or nation becomes non-white or if white children marry outside their race. Whites have no valid group interests, so it is illegitimate for them to attempt to organize as whites. Given the past crimes of whites, any ex¬pression of racial pride is wrong. The displacement of whites by non-whites through immigration will strengthen the United States. These are matters on which there is little ground for disagreement; anyone who holds differ¬ing views is not merely mistaken but morally suspect.

The fatal flaw of the present consensus is that only white people have become so deracinated, and if abandoning racial consciousness is not reciprocated by other races, then it is akin to unilateral disarmament in the face of hostile, armed enemies. That will not lead to a tolerant, multicultural utopia, but to civil war–hot or cold–in which selfish, race-wise groups out to serve their own interests at the expense of one another and America as a whole will strip whites to the bone. If whites refuse to take our own side in this struggle, we will lose our wealth, our power, our culture, our country, and ultimately our future as we deliver our destiny into the hands of people who hate us for our strengths and despise us for our weakness. It is a path to white dispossession and, ultimately, to white extinction. It is a process that is already well underway, as Taylor demonstrates in his long and depressing final chapter, “The Crisis We Face.”

I have two main criticisms of White Identity.

First, and foremost, although White Identity is beautifully written and constructs a crushing case for its theses through ingenious arguments and a vast array of carefully chosen facts, its conclusions are ultimately rather unambitious. In Taylor’s words:

This book will have been a success if at least a few readers have become open to the possibility that the following statements are true: People of all races generally prefer the company of people like themselves. Racial diversity is a source of conflict, not strength. Non-whites, especially blacks and His¬panics, nurture a strong sense of racial pride and solidarity. Whites have little sense of racial solidarity, and most whites strongly condemn any signs of it. Immigration from non-European countries is changing the United States in profound ways, many of which whites find disagreeable. To the extent that these statements are true, they have serious implications both for the country as a whole and for whites as a group.

Taylor succeeds in these aims, but I suspect that for most readers, the overall effect of this book will be despair and inaction. For Taylor offers only the most tepid of practical recommendations: “Clearly our immigration policies should be reexamined.” Or the book’s final words: “Only whites have no racial identity, are constantly on the defensive, and constantly in retreat. They have a choice: regain a sense of identity and the resolve to maintain their numbers, their traditions, and their way of life–or face oblivion.”

The trouble is that Taylor gives no indication of what, precisely, whites need to do to save ourselves, or any indication that it is even possible at this stage. And without a specific and appealing vision of an alternative and some indication of how we might get from here to there, most readers will sensibly conclude that the white race is doomed.

Of course, Taylor may be betting that leaving these matters open will be less discouraging than leveling with people about the harsh and terrible measures necessary to save us. For instance, halting all non-white immigration will slow but not halt our demographic eclipse, since the non-whites who are already here are outbreeding us handily. And do we really want to live in a constant breeding race until the natural world is completely despoiled? The white race has a future in North America only if we can separate ourselves from more than 100 million non-whites, for example through expulsion or territorial partition.

Yes, the book is long enough already, but even a few historical examples of conquered and colonized white peoples who have regained control of their destinies–the Irish, the Spanish, the Russians–would be enough to convince people that all is not lost.

Second, Taylor’s chapter on “White Racial Consciousness” offers nary a clue as to how in the last fifty years or so, healthy white racial consciousness around the globe has become almost completely perverted, setting our race on the path to extinction. But if racial consciousness is so soundly rooted in nature, how can something so contrary to nature even take place? The explanation is to be found in the work of Kevin MacDonald, particularly The Culture of Critique and Cultural Insurrections: white ethnocentrism, and only white ethnocentrism, has been pathologized by the organized Jewish community as a tool of ethnic warfare against whites. Without the perspective afforded by MacDonald’s work, the shift Taylor chronicles is ultimately mysterious and may give rise to the mistaken view that the white race has essentially been seized by a suicidal impulse.

Still, even with these caveats, White Identity is an important contribution to white survival. It will be particularly effective as a tool for opening the eyes of white liberals and skittish conservatives who can’t yet handle too much truth in one book. But ultimately White Identity is a propaedeutic or introductory book to White Nationalism, which avoids the most uncomfortable yet necessary topics.

Now that White Identity has been launched, I hope Jared Taylor will consider turning his attention to the harder questions, discomfiting though they may be. We certainly need his talents. Jared Taylor turns 60 this year, so surely he has the time. But consider this: Sam Francis was only 57 when he died in 2005. We are in a race against time, all of us.

Sam Francis’ untimely death contains a lesson for us all. Sam knew far more than would say, because he wished to conserve his credibility and audience in anticipation of the day when he would write his magnum opus. But he died before he could spend any of that credibility he saved so carefully.

At a certain point, one has to ask: What are we saving ourselves for? Our race is dying, and those few of us who know this need to stop saving ourselves and start spending ourselves, secure in the knowledge that anything we save will be taken from us by death in the end.

    The most pressing question facing nationalists at this point is this: Do we secede and create our own ethnostate or do we attempt to reclaim America through a grassroots campaign that eventually snowballs until we can repeal the Immigration Act of 1965 and put a moratorium on immigration? I go with the former option.

    The recent Kyle Bristow article on patriotism being a white thing (as evidenced by the Bin Laden celebration)doesn’t mean very much if our allegiance is to a nation that hates us or is no longer ours.

    Taylor is the most important and fluent white nationalist in America right now. There are other bright minds but none approach his impeccable debate skills. The author hints near the end of the article that Taylor should speak on Jewish involvement in white deracination. I won’t pretend I don’t have a dog in that hunt (as my father is Jewish) but I think the debate should be construed as an objection to Zionism and cultural Marxism, not all Jews.

    Jews, like whites, are divided between a camp that wants to defend Western civilization (ie Jewamongyou, who posts here) and the disingenuous leftist elements (a la Tim Wise).

    I have not yet read the book, but this review is wonderfully written. I agree that it’s necessary to go beyond urging a sense of white identity, and to advocate solutions, no matter how unpopular they might seem to today’s public.

  • Whiteman

    So the only answer to ‘people prefer their own kind’ yet ‘whites condemn other whites who show any racial favoritism’ is Jewish propaganda?

    Maybe the liberals are right and much of race is a social construct and they’ve been quite busy deconstructing whites.

    I disagree with the notion whites were racially conscious before 1950. Certainly they weren’t as racially backwards as whites are today. Perhaps they were unconsciously racist (as whites still are today) but not racially conscious as it’s understood today. Whites have not yet begun to fight.

  • Repeat Offender, again and again!

    Jared Taylor has made a good start, and remains a dedicated soldier on the side of right, but until he starts using the Kevin MacDonald critique, he’ll end up doing just what Greg Johnson says- depress us all.

    We need action plans, and Taylor should lead in calling for the demands. If he would become more prescriptive, he’d be on MSM with is his opportunity to debate our tactless enemies.

    1. All elite Whites who complain about the “burden of White privilege” must immediately surrender their careers to African “American” minorities.

    2. All Jewish synagogues that do not reflect the demographics of the state in which they are located should have their tax exempt status put under immediate review. A consent decree would insure that they must do more to encourage and welcome the enriching and vibrant diversity that makes our multicultural society so strong: more Afros, Mexicans, and Muslims should be recruited into transformative leadership positions in all synagogues and Jewish cultural organizations, especially the ADL.

    3. White students should demand that Diversity Is Our Strength mandates be quantified and systematically analyzed, just like everything else is. They should be given the means of joining in class action lawsuits against any organization that shows any explicit hiring or benefits preference for non Whites, especially those who have programs for “students of color”, minority recruitment, and Affirmative Action.

    4. White educators should all join a class action lawsuit against any institution that explicitly discriminated against Whites by stating the desirability of seeking “opportunity hires” from non White groups. Any heterosexual White male who was not given an equal opportunity to serve as head of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion should sue for justice.

    That’s just a start. Jared Taylor needs to attack with more specificity and create the natural division between self-respecting Whites and all the others.

    The explanation is to be found in the work of Kevin MacDonald, particularly The Culture of Critique and Cultural Insurrections: white ethnocentrism, and only white ethnocentrism, has been pathologized by the organized Jewish community as a tool of ethnic warfare against whites. Without the perspective afforded by MacDonald’s work, the shift Taylor chronicles is ultimately mysterious and may give rise to the mistaken view that the white race has essentially been seized by a suicidal impulse.

    I’m not going to use the occasion of this post to argue the merits or demerits of the MacDonald thesis, though I have a definite opinion, and it might seep out through the course of this comment.

    If there is such a thing as an “organized Jewish community” diabolically bashing in the knees of white ethnocentrism for its own benefit, then what does it say about the state of white ethnocentrism before that supposedly happened? A group of people that is 2-3% of the American population, and only predominate a small handful industries and callings, ought not be able to cow white gentiles, who outnumber them around 30-to-1, if white ethnocentrism among gentiles wasn’t weak to begin with. So the pregnant question, per Mr. Johnson’s second critique, shouldn’t be what some so-called “Jews” did or why they did what they supposedly did, it should be why were whites in general so gullible as to accept unnatural doctrine as a credible way of life? The gullibility had to exist more than 50 years ago in our people.

    Likewise, it’s just as silly as thinking that a Confederate Battle Flag flying on a private memorial (HT Spartan24) near a public court house could beat people into submission so badly that real justice is impossible to attain inside that building. People are (or should be) stronger, more resilient and more robust than that. Sorry, I don’t buy the notion that a Confederate Battle Flag pollutes the minds of jurors (even black jurors), I don’t buy the fact that cotton balls scattered on a walkway are an emblem of racial oppression (hint: You can easily walk around them or step on them), and I don’t buy the fact that, even if every American Jew were against white ethnocentrism and were viciously out to neutralize it or eliminate it, that “they” would be successful unless we allowed it.

    What does Mr. Johnson mean by “organized Jewish community?” I suppose he means the panoply of three-letter alphabet groups with either “A” or “J” in their name. I get the feeling that their power is more huff and puff more than reality. St. Louis has a significant Jewish population, therefore, I have met plenty. I know not one who is or claims to be a member or contributor to one of those alphabet groups.

    I do most assuredly relate to this statement below from the article above, as I have said it so many times over the years. In other words we cannot keep all these nonwhite immigrants here, period. Even if not one more legal or illegal immigrant ever came here after today, those already here will out breed us in a short period of time.

    “For instance, halting all non-white immigration will slow but not halt our demographic eclipse, since the non-whites who are already here are outbreeding us handily. And do we really want to live in a constant breeding race until the natural world is completely despoiled?

    Whiteman: Whites in the South certainly WERE racially conscious before 1950, and remained so up through the 70’s. Folks in some places, like Mississippi, still are, given the poll results indicating a majority of whites there still oppose miscegenation, even after two generations of schooling and multi-media indoctrination designed to destroy any sense of racial consciousness among whites.

    Of course, the campaign to deracinate whites has succeeded all too well in most other parts of the country. We saw evidence of that among the young Ron Paul supporters at CPAC. They contemptuously rejected Jamie Kelso’s attempts (it’s all on YouTube) to connect their race to their country, suggesting the young woman of the group would do well to marry white & have white babies. These intelligent but rather arrogant young people would probably benefit from reading WHITE IDENTITY, though I’m not sure even well educated young people can be bothered with reading anything really substantial these days.

    I don’t really understand the reviewer’s complaint in this case. Why speculate on the future? Mr. Taylor already did give some recommendations in Paved With Good Intentions. Getting into gory speculation about the future will serve no purpose.

    Surely, the most important thing is for whites to wake up. Without that, nothing else can happen. With it, anything is possible.

    I agree with poster #3 who wrote:

    “I disagree with the notion whites were racially conscious before 1950. Certainly they weren’t as racially backwards as whites are today. Perhaps they were unconsciously racist (as whites still are today) but not racially conscious as it’s understood today. Whites have not yet begun to fight.”

    I think this is because in 1950, Whites(as in non-Jewish, European Whites) were at the peak of their/our power.

    And it was the closing arc of an ascendancy which had lasted for hundreds of years, starting about 1500 AD. So it was simply impossible for them to be ‘conscious’, first because they lived in socities which were almost totally homogenous, at least in Europe/Canada/Australia, and in the U.S. nobody saw the blacks as a genuine threat, more as an annoyance, although many saw the injustices being done to blacks(which I do not defend or condone, Jim Crow was horrible).

    Lincoln was right when he condemned slavery but wanted to see a genuine solution to the African problem(by sending them back and letting them live in peace amongst themselves). That didn’t happen but nobody in 1950 could predict America in the year 2000.

    This is still with us today. In Europe, there is a clear understanding of our relative decline and an acceptance of it, we’ve had a great run but now we need to preserve who we are and live within our means.

    In America, there was and is also that consciousness, but because of the two-party system, it’s almost impossible to affect things. In Europe, you don’t need more than 10 % of the vote to affect parliamentary affairs. I think that if America had Europe’s political system, we would’ve seen a break on this already in the late 70s, certainly by the 80s it would’ve been done.

    But it was successfully muffled, with much help from certain organisations like NYT, ADL and SPLC and others in a unified agenda.

    Now, I think it will take a genuine crisis, a South African style event globally to awaken our people, and we’ll definitely make it through and we’ll do better than many others, and it will strengthen us. I think the coming 50 years will have profound impacts on our culture and civilization as we realize that we are vurnable, and as we pay the price as the only group in modern times that is ‘forbidden’ to a clear, unifying identity. And we will also, without doubt, look into to the reasons of why this happened and who perpetuated the demise.

    In other words: The Frankfurt school, NYT, ADL and many others will be torn off and exposed, as well as those responsible for these organisations. White limo libs will always exist, but their enablers will not get away since they are responsible more than anyone else. This is inevitable. Justice must be done.

    Let’s hope that when Whites “begin to fight”, it won’t be too late!

    I believe that separation, or the establishment of a White Enclave, is the only answer to the survival of the White race.

    Consider that there is now not one White_only country in the world. That is an astounding fact, and a particularly disturbing one.

    1 Hirsch:

    If that’s a debate you want to have, then I vote for Zionism. Got eyes? Haven’t you notice that the international left wing (including a lot of American leftist Jews) accuse Israel of being an apartheid regime? (I’d take that as a compliment). And the more time goes on, the more news that seeps out that Israel supported South Africa, i.e. the pre-De Klerk South Africa. Shimon Perez offered P.W. Botha nuclear ordinance in the 1970s while both were their respective countries’ foreign ministers. Israel never signed on to the international boycott of South Africa, and the only reason they ever had a bad word to say about ZA for outward consumption was out of fear of being kicked off the American welfare state.

  • Randall McD

    Taylor (and Johnson) are correct on nearly everything, though I would disagree that this has only been going on since the 50s/60s. It may have accelerated at that point, but most of this has substantially earlier roots, and snowballing for more than a century. Noblesse Oblige has roots at least hundreds of years back, if not further; Christian morality has roots thousands of years back. These are at the core of the “weakness” that Taylor describes, the moral imperative that has been parasitized to exploit whites. Minority-rights organizations such as NAACP have been around for over a century, and there was noise by black rights activists such as Marcus Garvey in the 20s. Anti-slavery activists, both white and black, were raising cain more than 150 years ago. Communist ideology is over a century old, and has been used as the template for the modern American race socialism. In short, reversing liberal errors of the 50s/60s may help to slow the decline, but the fundamental problems still will be in place.

    Well that’s factually nontrue. Finland is 98-99 % white.

    Same with Poland and other Eastern European countries.

    Unless the British founding stock get a sense of identity, destiny & cohesion as a distinct group first, most of them will remain sceptical to WN. Italian-Americans like Tancredo, Borzellieri, La Bruzzo & DeAnna in politics and David Chase & Tom Fontana in entertainment are great allies but the movement needs more Becks, Nugents & Dobbs. A generic White identity must be established & promoted along with WASP identity within US WN. Taylor should make WASP identity the subject of his next book

    @ Question Diversity

    I agree with Geert Wilders that Islam is the problem, not Israel. However, I don’t think it bodes well for our nation that the largest single contributor to political campaigns is a foreign influence (ie AIPAC, or JINSA, chaired by Dick Cheney). Israel should be as free as any nation to pursue their own destiny, and have an immigration policy that reflects that. But I wouldn’t call someone like Pat Buchanan a Nazi when he simply states the obvious, that “Washington is Israeli Occupied Territory.”

    The Jewish population is way more than 2% in this country. They almost have that many in Hollywood and in our media alone. That number has been put out there for decades now. It is like that “12 million illegals” number that has been put out there for the last 15 years! Funny how these percentages never change over the years, it just keeps getting repeated over and over.

    Would any of those you know really claim to be members of the alphabet groups in the first place? I know a lot of Mexicans also and NONE of them has ever said they belong to Mecha or La Raza, yet they sure agree with their platforms.

    Did you ask if any of them supported and agreed with those alphabet groups? Would they tell you the truth to begin with? These are questions that need to be asked but who knows if the answers will be truthful?

  • BritishActivism

    This looks like a very interesting book. I have just finished Mr Taylor’s “A race against time” – and thought it was a very worthwhile read (despite it being a bit “American-centric”).

    Being from Britain/Europe, we do not share the same history and issues as what has bedevilled America, but it is clear that the similarities of what has happened since the 1950’s is striking. We face the same problems now, and face the same arguments and attacks which have led Americans on the path to destruction.

    Only, I suspect that in Britain, we are for more advanced in the rotting process and much more under the heel of “liberalism” and cultural Marxism than what has arrived in America so far. I know it is coming for you people too, faster and faster.

    The new book does sound good, and I hope that some of it can be just as equally applied to other nations than America. I wish we had our own Jared Taylor here in Britain. You are lucky to have him, his arguments, and his skills.

    I agree with the review that Jared tends to avoid the processes of “how” things have got this far, how psychology and advanced programming techniques have changed our societies. We have been under attack, and perhaps it is wise for the review to indicate where some of these attacks came from. It does need to be filled in, but perhaps it is outside of Jared’s remit, or perhaps, quite frankly, he wishes to keep his nose clean with these issues, given the labels and scrutiny that tends to follow.

    Although I have a pile of books still to read, I think I will purchase this one shortly. I have hope that it will provide further argument to my toolbox, because right now, here in Britain, we are miles away from where we need to be on these subjects, and we continue to be beaten down on them.

  • Question Diversity

    17: Your analogy isn’t that valid. The reason is that it is true that the actual percentage of Chicano Hispanics that belong to MECHA or La Raza, or even agree strongly enough with their (real) agenda, is small. The usual SPLC retort on immigration is that “reconquista isn’t a big deal and white racists are only making a mountain out of a molehill b/c reconquista is only a fringe mentality among American Hispanics.” In that, they are correct, and it is correct. However, that they are correct and it is correct is immaterial. The reason we oppose mass Hispanic immigration is because we don’t want whole parts of our country becoming replications of the places from whence they came. If the American Southwest falls, it won’t matter if it secedes or not, or becomes part of Mexico or not, or a separate Aztlan or not, or stays part of the U.S. or not — Either way, it will be one big barrio, unlivable for us whites.

    Detroit is still part of the United States. Get my drift?

    On the flip side of that coin, even if every Jew in America were a member of the ADL or AJC, or at least agreed with its extremist aims (and that’s not the case), that by itself doesn’t make whole neighborhoods unlivable for whites, nor does it mean we would be demographically dispossessed in our own country, by itself. Yeah, you could respond with the political and cultural lobbying angle, but then that takes me back to my point above — Us gentiles should have strong enough constitutions to resist such perfidy.

    16 Hirsch:

    I wouldn’t say that about PJB, either. I would only say he’s wrong — It’s not that Washington is Israel-occupied territory, it’s the other way around. And foreign aid is the main reason. Look at Israel’s behavior before and after Camp David. Before, you had the Israel of Golde Meir that kicked, well, you know. It was also the Israel that wanted to transfer nukes to apartheid-era South Africa on the QT. After Camp David, it’s the Israel that gave up territory, mouthed off against South African apartheid (for public consumption only), and can barely muster the strength these days to build a new housing subdivision in East Jerusalem.

    AIPAC: Too many people have this notion that AIPAC is this secretive monster gobbling up unwilling politicians who would otherwise “do the right thing” and instead “support Israel.” A lot of PACs work that way, i.e. legalized bribery, but there are also a bunch of PACs that only have power and strength because they tap into a pre-existing ideological market. AIPAC is one of them — AIPAC only exists to the level it does because so many American politicians are already pro-Israel. And, just in case you were wondering about my worldview, the main energy for America’s pro-Israel foreign policy comes NOT from American Jews and their “disproportionate” control of the media and Hollywood, because most American Jews are insouciant about Israel, and I think perhaps the political center of gravity on the Israel issue among American Jews is slightly anti-Israel and anti-Zionist. What drives American love of Israel are fundagelical Low Protestant Christians, mainly in the South, who hold to a Darbyite interpretation of the book of Revelation.

    Notice how little flack Rand Paul got from what some here would term “the usual suspects” when he said that Israel should be cut off the American foreign aid dole? Yeah, some of the shills for the military-industrial complex made noise, (hint: A big percentage of our foreign aid to Israel is required to be turned right back around in defense purchases), but they never wanted Rand Paul anyway because they feared that he was even half as anti-bellicosity as his father. But from the “A” and “J” groups — Nothing. From the Christian fundagelicals waiting for the rapture — Nothing. I thought the radio talk show host born Michael Alan Weiner would have a fit, but he actually supported Paul — His exact words were “even if he means Israel and only Israel should be cut off, I agree. It’s time for Israel to grow up again.”

    Since I’m not a Darbyite, and I hold to the traditional Catholic/High Protestant interpretation of Revelation, that it describes spiritual events in the past, I feel no spiritual imperative to support Israel or Jews. To me, Israel is just another white country, among many white countries to which we should show racial solidarity, and Judaism is just another faith tradition practiced by said white ethnicity, in the great smorgasbord of faith traditions that whites have practiced, including Christianity, Odinism, and many others, and also including atheism and agnosticism. Nothing more, nothing less. Yes, I’m pro-Israel, but no more or no less than I am pro-Irish, pro-Estonian, pro-Czech, pro-Swedish, and so on. That would lead me to ranting against what I think is a creepy form of stalking of which I do not partake: Philo-Semitism. But I’m going to stop before this post becomes a Ph.D. dissertation.

    “I disagree with the notion whites were racially conscious before 1950. Certainly they weren’t as racially backwards as whites are today. Perhaps they were unconsciously racist (as whites still are today) but not racially conscious as it’s understood today. Whites have not yet begun to fight.”

    Of course, whites were generally more racially conscious before 1950. Consider this: the South, as well as many places in the North, had Jim Crow Laws (segregation) and mixed marriages were still illegal in most Southern States. This was the era before the 1965 immigration “reforms” and most of our preferred immigration was European. This was also before the Civil Rights Act of 1965–basically we were a far different country than today. We can’t turn back the clock , but whites were definitely more racially conscious in the early twentieth century.

    19 — Question Diversity at 4:33 PM on May 14:

    I still disagree with your assertions above. IT DOES MATTER. Very much so. On BOTH subjects.

    You also state that,“reconquista isn’t a big deal and white racists are only making a mountain out of a molehill b/c reconquista is only a fringe mentality among American Hispanics.” In that, they are correct, and it is correct. However, that they are correct and it is correct is immaterial.

    Really? No big deal? So now you call us “white(with a small w)racists” making a mountain out of a mole hill? Sounds like something the SPLC would say and call us. And YES, most American “hispanics” do believe in what La Raza, etc. stand for. I worked and lived among many of them.

    You say, Your analogy isn’t that valid.

    Well, yes it is, on both subjects. I won’t even go into the second part of your comment as I totally disagree with your take on it.

    As for the SPLC “facts” you state, I am surprised you bought into their lies about all these NONwhite anti-White groups, (they are so small in number, they claim, that it isn’t worth mentioning?) wow.

    They (SPLC) as you should well know, only target WHITE groups, not nonwhite groups, with a vengeance.

    I, too, have always wondered why Mr. Taylor, and others who can see the death of the white race coming, do not come up with a “strategic plan” for racial survival. I suggest that Am Ren sponsor a contest for the submittal of white survival plans and publish them. Am Ren supporters can all pledge $20–$10 for Am Ren and $10 for the winner.

    A plan could include: The infiltration by white patriots of the media and the academy; whites having more babies; the end of birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants; deportation of all illegal aliens; political activism; boycotts of those who support anti-white policies (such as sponsors of TV shows that glorify interracial dating and marriage); public funding for family planning and abortion for low income women; and the defeat of Obama in the next election to avoid the left’s capture of the federal judiciary with attendant legalization of de facto open borders, state sponsored discrimination against whites, and restrictions on free speech such as speech codes on college campuses.

    We must also consider the formation of ethno-states on continents with sizeable white populations and form an international union and defense league of those states. In the final chapter of his “The Death of the West, Pat Buchanan gives a hit and miss list of actions to take. I disagree with his Pro Life position which would have the practical effect of speeding the demographic shift against whites.

    I look forward to reading Taylor’s new book. Hopefully he will not just be preaching to the choir and the book will receive a wider audience.

    I think there is no denying that organized (secular) Jewry has been waging war against whites (as a group). It should be kept in mind that many non-Jews have participated in this war (on the wrong side) as well. To treat Jewish involvement in this campaign against whites as a taboo subject is counterproductive; it is reminiscent of the tactics of our enemies, who refuse to even discuss innate racial differences. We should be better than them. By all means, let us discuss this topic. Let us discuss it maturely. By doing so, we can demonstrate that the matter can be recognized and debated without descending into lunacy. Still, I think it was wise of Taylor to avoid bringing it up himself. The subject is far too toxic for any good to come of it for high-profile individuals. But the rest of us should be free to discuss it at will – while recognizing that some people live only to hate Jews. For them, it’s not an opinion but a mental illness.

    Anonymous #10 – although many saw the injustices being done to blacks(which I do not defend or condone, Jim Crow was horrible).

    How was Jim Crow “horrible”? For who? Jim Crow was simply laws that enforced segregation. Jim Crow was all white neighborhoods, schools, grocery stores, police stations, malls, beaches\pools, banks, motels, restaurants etc., how was that “horrible”? Why do you have a problem with that? You should only be worried about the “horrible injustices” that are being done to Whites in the present day. Compare black on White violence during the “horrible” Jim Crow era and today, has it gone down? I also don’t recall any black ‘flash mobs’ during that “horrible” era either ( can you imagine how the Jim Crow Whites would’ve reacted to that? ). It was also during the “horrible” Jim Crow era that most black children had a baby-momma and a baby-daddy in the household. It was also during this “horrible” time that many blacks lived in self contained communities that supported each other, and black businesses thrived as they had no other choice but to create their own businesses, no welfare from Whites. Are they doing better today? It was also during that “horrible” era that Whites made up 90-plus % of the population, now we’re maybe 65%. How is that working out for us?

    2. All Jewish synagogues that do not reflect the demographics of the state in which they are located should have their tax exempt status put under immediate review. A consent decree would insure that they must do more to encourage and welcome the enriching and vibrant diversity that makes our multicultural society so strong: more Afros, Mexicans, and Muslims should be recruited into transformative leadership positions in all synagogues and Jewish cultural organizations, especially the ADL.

    This is the a great idea.

    We should start recruiting non-Jews for synagogues.

    Can anybody find me some real synagogue flyers trying to get Jews to attend a synagogue?

    I could rewrite them, people could put them in non-white neighborhoods …..

    The big thing being Jews take care of their own but it’s not easy to become a Jew though … huge TAX … you have to do what’s required …. i.e. learn Hebrew enough.

    But wannabe-Jews could claim that is an impediment to their chance to advance in their religion of choice. Which it is.

    The way I see it is that the hippies of the 60s are now the lawyers, judges and politicians of today, for some reason they still believe that we can all hold hands and sing cum-bi-ya. All of the liberals I know talk so much about “racial equality” and “justice in the black community” and other liberal catch phrases to me is just such nonsense. They still will go out of their way to drive their beamers around “the hood” instead of drive through it. They’ll pay outrageously high real estate prices to live in a “good neighborhood”. They preach gun-control and hire armed security to protect them. I think they’re all just a bunch of fools that will get it some day as America becomes more and more a 3rd world country. Maybe then they’ll get their minds right. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being proud of your own race. Blacks and browns and yellows do it all the time. Why then should white people be the only ones who can’t be proud of who we are?

    Methinks you need a lot of help with reading comprehension. That’s all I can conclude if you think I agree with the SPLC fundamentally, save one technical but immaterial point about reconquista (in terms of secessionist irredentism) being a fringe ideology among American Hispanics.

    And the more time goes on, the more news that seeps out that Israel supported South Africa, i.e. the pre-De Klerk South Africa.

    –Question Diversity

    The following is copied directly from The Council of Conservative Citizens website:

    “According to Israel’s largest newspaper, Jews were dramatically overrepresented among white anti-Apartheid activists. Despite Apartheid being an important ally of Israel. The paper also describes how South African Jews were instrumental in the formation of the South African Communist Party (which launched the ANC) and the South African Progressive Party. In the struggle against South African Apartheid, it was estimated that Jews were overrepresented by 2,500 percent in proportion to the governing white population.”

    Thank you, Tom! That poster was pathetic and sadly typical of the many who have been brainwashed the all the flood of propaganda that we have been fed for 40 years. Even among us, we have those who consider segregation “horrible”.

    Under segregation, nobody was degraded or denigrated or abused. It was simply understood that “This is ours and that is yours.” No different that men’s rooms and women’s rooms today… (does anyone complain about “discrimination”?).

    And it worked BOTH ways. On the New Orleans streetcar, as a naive northern kid, I sat in the colored section. It drew stares; nobody rioted, but I was very politely asked to move.

    We had ours, and they had theirs.

    Let me also say that I agree completely with poster #21 Anonymous. Anyone who scoffs at the notion of La Reconquista or La Raza and says these movements are insignificant and not worthy of notice is misleading us and is no friend of the white race.

    I also agree with Jewamongyou’s accurate comment — although why he limits it to secular Jewry I can’t imagine:

    “there is no denying that organized (secular) Jewry has been waging war against whites (as a group). It should be kept in mind that many non-Jews have participated in this war (on the wrong side) as well. To treat Jewish involvement in this campaign against whites as a taboo subject is counterproductive; it is reminiscent of the tactics of our enemies, who refuse even to discuss innate racial differences.”

    It’s hardly surprising that they are the same tactics, as they both come from the same source.
