Michigan Group Formed to Promote Western Culture

Dan Poole, CAOC, December 31, 2013

Activists in Michigan have teamed up to found The Center for the Advancement of Occidental Culture, LLC (“CAOC”), which was launched on December 30, 2013. This new organization’s mission is “to advance and defend Western civilization,” and it will do this by promoting works—including paintings, music, texts, and movies—of significance to European history and culture, by promoting European-themed cultural events, by educating the public about European cuisine, by offering commentary on current events affecting Western civilization and its people, and by opposing discrimination and harassment directed towards European-Americans.

Dan Poole—a writer, political scientist, and historian—serves as the executive director and spokesman of CAOC. A recent graduate of Oakland University, he is a former libertarian/right-wing activist with experience in Tea Party political endeavors. Said Mr. Poole, “I am proud to advance a beautiful culture and the unique expression of humanity which carries its heritage.”

Kyle Bristow—an attorney licensed to practice law in both Michigan and Ohio—serves as the chief legal officer of CAOC. As the author of White Apocalypse / The Conscience of a Right-Winger, and as the former chairman of the Michigan State University chapter of the Young Americans for Freedom, he has much experience in political endeavors. “I am eager to support a worthwhile movement and organization,” Mr. Bristow said.

“What separates CAOC from other organizations,” Mr. Poole said, “is that it exists to simultaneously advance and defend Western culture. Unlike other groups which tend to be more introverted, CAOC will be on the front lines as the vanguard of the Occident in the culture war.”

To get the entity up and running, CAOC is in need of contributors who will submit original articles and op-eds of between 500 and 1000 words, and it is also in need of financial support. Please visit CAOC’s website, www.occidentalculture.com, for more information.

“The Men of the West will not succumb to the siren song of which the Culture-distorters relentlessly propagate. Western civilization will not fade into the perennial abyss without a solemn fight, and like Horatius at the Gate of Rome, we will make our stand,” Mr. Poole declared

    Good luck, fighting the good fight.

      Yep, the usual crybabies will whine about so-called “racism” and “white supremacy”.

      But thank God we have unbiased watchdog groups like the ADL and SPLC to keep us informed,

          Oh, how I miss listening to those early Sat morning ADV broadcasts with a cup of coffee. He truly knew what was in our future.

          He was really starting to reach a large audience when he unfortunately left us.

          His broadcasts can easily be downloaded using Real Player. Might be a good idea before his organization folds up.

        SPLC? more like SBPLD!

    Half of the people attacking them will be elected republicans, people YOU narrow minded conservatives voted for. Quit playing checkers, and move on to chess.

    Here’s the only “culture” White people have to focus on now, Control of breathing, a good position, taking up trigger slack, sights on six o’clock bull and letting the round go at exactly the right moment – one round, one hit.

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    All I have managed to do so far is convert some close friends and family members of HBD and a few other politically incorrect ideas. I think race is a major issue but many don’t notice the roots of the problem. Some people on here think that we can have some mutli-ethnic IQ based meritocracy not realizing how institutions and culture usually come in package deals. Progressive liberalism, socialism, classical liberalism, and libertarianism are all enlightenment ideologies that must go.

    I’ve just been reading that poem the last few days. It’s quite nice.


    Then out spake brave Horatius,
    The Captain of the gate:
    “To every man upon this earth
    Death cometh soon or late.
    And how can man die better
    Than facing fearful odds
    For the ashes of his fathers
    And the temples of his gods?”

  • Hal K

    It is good that they include “opposing discrimination and harassment directed towards European-Americans.” This qualifies them as explicitly pro-white, which is important.

  • Dan Poole

    We’ve got a game plan for that. Can’t share details, but trust me, we’re prepared for the attacks.

  • Ella

    You’ll need your lawyer when you refuse to print or show any art exhibits by nonwhites. I can imagine the boycotts. Publishing, art galleries and Hollywood can be the White person’s roadblock to success.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    Good luck with your endeavor, Mr. Poole, and keep fighting the good fight.

    This sounds like a worthy cause…Promoting Our European culture. We must re-introduce pride and respect back into the minds of our children and encourage them to be proud of their European heritage. Many have been brainwashed over the decades by liberal thinkers and mainstream media, who only remind them of the negative things from our past and not the positive. I complement the CAOC and it’s founders on their mission to educate the public, and encourage enrichment of european culture in the minds of our people. Hopefully they can challenge Political Correctness, and bring back America to the people!

    Though I appreciate the sentiment and commitment these guys have made to fighting the cultural marxists, we need to get off the notion of forming think tanks and get into practical politics and get the youth vote. Which means obviously, we have to dumb things down a little for them. How are these guys going to fight? Are they going protest? Make propaganda? The White Student Union at Towson had it right before Matt Heimbach went off the deep end.

    • Dan Poole

      Thanks for your thoughts Dylan. I speak more for myself than for CAOC with what I’m about to say, but as Executive Director of this group, here’s what I want to accomplish:

      Right now, our people don’t even know that they have a culture and a civilization worth fighting for. And they certainly make no connection between who they are and what their culture is. At best, our people are indifferent to their genetic heritage, and at worst, they are overcome with feelings of guilt and shame over it. I believe we must show them what their culture is all about so that way they can become inspired and confident about it! Then and only then will it be possible for them to stand up for themselves as a unique people. I do not believe they will ever stand up for themselves based on biology alone. We’ve got to show them that they have something worth fighting for and even dying for.

      As such, we are not a think tank. Think tanks specialize in the rational, and that’s not our domain. We seek to engage through inspiration and practical actions. I’m not at liberty to share what those practical actions are, but rest assured we have ideas in mind. We do not plan on just writing blog posts. We’re going to be engaged in the real world, and we’re going to do it in a way that goes beyond public protests. We fully understand the importance of practical engagement.

      Remember this too: Politics is downstream of culture. The movement won’t ever make political progress under current cultural conditions. It is the duty of all of us in the movement to change those conditions to the best of our abilities.

    What is needed in America is a well-endowed foundation whose sole purpose is the education of the masses about the true (evil) nature of Islam, the true (evil) history of Islam, and the FACT that Islam is 100% incompatible with Western Civilization and the American Constitution, that there is ZERO chance America can survive with the rights and freedoms it claims to have, with Islam within our borders. Even many so-called educated people, including no doubt many that comment here, are utterly and hopelessly clueless about the truth about Islam and they would say that Islam has all the rights it needs due to the first amendment, even if the end result of allowing the spread of Islam in America will the END of the so-called rights of the first amendment for all other religions, the end of freedom of speech, etc. Islam does not allow, per it’s core doctrines and texts, freedom of religion or freedom of speech or equal rights. Something will have to give, will that be the 1400 year old religion with billions of followers or the 200 year old Constitution? America will not be able to fight, physically and in the courts, against the Muslims within our borders forever. The only reason America is losing privacy due to NSA etc. is the presence of Islam within our borders. Someone has to educated the citizens and change this. Most are brainwashed in multiculturalism and the religion of tolerance and they would rather DIE than admit that the problem is Islam, not terror, not extremists, etc.

    • wildfirexx

      Yes the growing spread of Islam in the west is a threat to our very way of life as we know it today! And yet somehow the liberal Zionist way of thinking has poisoned our minds and twisted our thoughts, (even though we don’t like it, for fear of being labeled a racist or called a bigot) that we accept our fate of self-destruction without even a whimper. And ironically speaking, the same evil people who lobbied our governments to promote multiculturalism, affirmative action and other unnatural programs, policies and hate crimes… are in the same sinking ship as the rest of us!

  • John K

    Good luck. They’ll have more success changing Detroit’s name to New Mogadishu. It’s a sad time when a group has to be formed to promote western civilization…..INSIDE AMERICAN BORDERS! The white liberal is to blame more than any black race hustler or third world savage. It’s the liberal that has dragged the country down to perversity and third world standards, and has turned Detroit, once the most thriving city in America, into an abomination comparable to any African war zone.

    Does anyone know what happened to them? They’ve already collapsed.
