The Return of Ethnic Nationalism—Is Europe Cracking Up?

Patrick J. Buchanan, VDARE, March 24, 2014

A week ago, in the St. George’s Hall in the Kremlin, Russia’s elite cheered and wept as Vladimir Putin announced the re-annexation of Crimea. Seven in 10 Russians approve of Putin’s rule.

In Crimea, the Russian majority has not ceased celebrating. The re-conquest nears completion. In Eastern Ukraine, Russians have now begun to agitate for annexation by Moscow.

Ukrainian nationalism, manifest in the anti-Russia coup in Kiev, has produced its inevitable reaction among Russians.

While praising the Ukrainians who came out to Maidan to protest peacefully, Putin said that those behind the decisive events “resorted to terror, murder and riots. Nationalists, neo-Nazis, Russophobes and anti-Semites executed this coup.” The Kremlin erupted in cheers.

But not only in Ukraine is ethnic nationalism surging.

“National Front Vote Stuns Hollande” was the headline on the Financial Times’ story about France’s municipal elections Sunday.

Though the FN of Marine Le Pen, daughter of party founder Jean Marie Le Pen, did not field candidates in many cities, it won the mayoral race outright in Henin-Beaumont and ran first or second in a dozen medium-sized cities, qualifying for run-off elections on March 30.

In early polling for the May elections for the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the National Front is running close behind the UMP of ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy, and ahead of Hollande’s socialists.

{snip}

But the most startling news on the nationalist front last week came in Venice and the Veneto region, where 89 percent of a large turnout in a non-binding referendum voted to secede from Italy and re-establish the Venetian republic that vanished in 1866.

Exulted Luca Zaia of the separatist Northern League, “The will for secession is growing very strong. We are only at the Big Bang of the movement—but revolutions are born of hunger and we are now hungry. Venice can now escape.”

The proposed “Repubblica Veneta” would embrace five million inhabitants of Veneto. Should it succeed in seceding, Lombardy and Trentino would likely follow, bringing about a partition of Italy. Sardinia is also reportedly looking for an exit.

In readying their referendum, Venetians journeyed to Scotland to observe preparations by the Scottish National Party for the vote this fall to sever the 1707 Act of Union with England.

Also observing in Scotland were representatives of Catalonia who will hold a similar referendum this fall on secession from Spain. Basque Country secessionists were present in Scotland as well.

In a report published this weekend, “Europe on Trial,” a poll of 20,000 British commissioned by Lord Ashcroft of the Conservative Party found that Russia (before the Kiev-Crimea crisis) was viewed more favorably than either the EU or European Parliament.

{snip}

Prime Minister David Cameron has set a vote on EU membership for 2017. Now it appears the Labour Party, seeing the unpopularity of the EU, may also be open to changing the EU treaty and a referendum on saying goodbye to Europe, should they take power in 2015.

Why is the EU under rising centrifugal pressure? Why do so many nations of Europe seem on the verge of breaking up?

There is no single or simple explanation.

Venice and Northern Italy feel exploited. Why, they ask, should we subsidize a less industrious and lazier south that consumes tax revenues we raise here. Many northern Italians believe they have more in common with Swiss than Romans, Neapolitans or Sicilians.

Flanders feels the same about the Walloons in Belgium.

Scots and Catalans believe they are a people with a culture, history and identity separate from the nations to which they belong.

Across Europe, there is a fear that the ethnic character of their countries and continent are being altered forever against the will of the people.

{snip}

What the children of Europe are rebelling against is what their fathers, paralyzed by political correctness, refused to prevent.

It was predictable, it was predicted, and it has come to pass.

    Across Europe, there is a fear that the ethnic character of their countries and continent are being altered forever against the will of the people.
    _______________________________________________________________________

    As I read this piece from Buchanan in my email a couple of days ago, I actually felt a chill of excitement run down my back.

    For all my pessimism about how far down the path of racial and cultural suicide we’ve come, this article brought out what recent news has been suggesting – that there is a slow but unmistakable rise in pan-European realization that the people have been duped by the cheap labor-hungry elites (and that’s giving them the benefit of the doubt as to their motives).

    I don’t know how this growing sentiment will be manifested, or what it will lead to. But it is there. I feel rumblings underneath this flimsy multicultural system, and they seem to be growing louder.

    I’m excited to see what will happen when Europe rises from its slumber.

    • Bossman

      I don’t see why you should be excited. If Europeans can’t unite into a union, it means they will always remain small and fragmented and will be no challenge to Asia and North America or even to Latin America.

      • DaveMed

        It is not our wish to “challenge” anybody. It is our wish to preserve our own peoples.

        • Bossman

          It is not about preservation; it is about expanding or shrinking. That is the only choice a nation has in the grand scheme of things.

          • Size is secondary. Ethnonationalism is primary and non-negotiable. Otherwise, by definition, you don’t have a “nation.”

          • Bossman

            Ethnonationalism is useless if you can’t stand your ground while others encroach on you.

          • But without ethnonationalism, it’s not really “your” ground, it’s just a piece of real estate populated by random individuals.

          • Europe is not only already being “encroached” upon, it is being invaded.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            Reconquer Europe, put an end to the non-White invasion and kick out the non-White invaders that are already in Europe.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            You do realize just how much “wet work,” as in killing we will have to do in order to achieve that. That will be because many of these will not be persuaded to leave. Only piles of these invaders dead bodies will convince the most dangerous among them to get out of Europe. Even then, there is the matter of darkie nations who may respond to their fellows being expelled at the point of bloody bayonets and smoking guns with nuclear, chemical or other weapons of mass destruction. I think it will take nothing less than a world war to expel them, and if the likes of Pakistan attack with nuclear weapons, then European nations will have to return the favor.

          • Frank_DeScushin

            Most of us view bringing in millions of outsiders in an attempt to grow the nation as encroachment.

            You’re also using the definition of “nation” as a land governed by laws. Most people here view “nation” in the traditional sense of a group of people with a common ancestry, culture, and language.

          • Whiteplight

            It actually is an invasion. If you lived in California as I did from 1952 to 2002 and witnessed the increase of robberies, burglaries, beatings, rapes, and murders of whites by Hispanics over that time and the documented “white flight” from California during the late 80s and 90s, you’d understand that this has been an invasion.

            That is leaving out the fact of the huge amount of financial fraud (apart from illegal employment, etc.) via insurance bilking and other scams on the government, like food stamp extortion, bilked medical services that saw the establishment of enough anchor babies to last for decades of legal costs sorting the resultant immigration issues, etc.

            The “Reconquesta” was announced at least by the 70s publicly by La Raza in California. (But it was at least as old as 1915 when the “San Diego Plan” in Texas for the retaking of the Southwest and genocide of white males over 16 was thwarted). I know because I witnessed the repeated announcements and all the Mexican flags showing up in front of homes and cars, etc., for decades until they figured out that brandishing the U.S. flag and claiming American citizenship by presence was perhaps more politically expedient.

            The Reconquesta has succeeded because white Americans are divided. Even here on Amren posts, you can regularly read posts where white gloat over California’s problems because they have an old inferiority complex about not being a Californian. I would like to see them gloated over the dead bodies of some of the beautiful young white women these invaders raped and killed. The point is that whites are often their own worst enemy. I hope that this rise in ethnic separatism isn’t simply whites hating other whites with immigration issues a distant second.

          • Sick of it

            And how does one do so when one is stuck with a corrupt multinational government which has opened the floodgates to every enemy of your people?

          • me

            A ‘nation’ is not a nation if there isn’t a cohesive unity of like peoples with the same culture, morals, values, and goals. A nation is not just some area of land. A nation has a people and a history. A nation is a home to a race of people who have fought for, and built, a home for themselves and their progeny . That is what makes a successful nation. Not laws, not politicians, not social experimentation, not ‘collectivism’, not ‘multiculturalism’, nor ‘egalitarianism’. Different races are always in conflict with each other on many fronts–linguistically, educationally, aesthetically, religiously, morally, economically, culturally, etc. “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

          • sbuffalonative

            The third option is long-term stability.

          • Geo1metric

            Please clarify that statement.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Untrue. Nuclear weapons changed all that. You’re thinking is somewhere in the 19th century. Why do you think countries so aggressively seek nukes. Expansion or contraction are not the factors at all. Having a majority vote, regardless of numbers, is the goal.

          • Whiteplight

            If the EU was not a Leftist organization at heart, bent on depopulating the land and replacing the indigenous Europeans with immigrants, I don’t think the problems of the EU would be so great.

            Some of the effects of the EU were good, such as a single currency and the political round table that all the nations have a seat. But when a new EU country like Ireland can suddenly find itself with a Jewish president and a quickly increasing Muslim and African immigration problem, it is obvious that the trade off is eventual European extinction. If whites/Europeans have to carve out small, exclusive territories in order to preserve their ethnic, national characteristics, so be it. The only difference between them and Indian reservations in the U.S. is that the Europeans are trying to create zones of preservation for themselves because no one else is going to do it for them.

            He adds nothing significant or even humorous to any discussion. I sometimes wonder if he’s a sixth-grader from an East LA barrio. I don’t mind a differing opinion if it has substance to it. He just needs to be ignored.

      • Sue

        One must remember the European people never wanted the EU. When they need to unite as Europeans for their own betterment, they know how. Thousands of years of development and achievement doesn’t go away from half a century of alien “enlightenment”

        • David Ashton

          “Let us not think even in terms of 1914, 1939 or of the nineteenth century; let us not think in terms of little history but of great history; let us dare even to think biologically as well as historically, even if we offend those who can see no difference between a racehorse and a donkey. Three thousand years of this genius – the European mind and spirit – belong to us all.” – Oswald Mosley (1954).

  • LovelyNordicHeidi

    I do not say this often, but I am PROUD to be European, I am PROUD to live in Europe and I hope to witness the grand awakening in Europe, after which all non-Whites will be expelled from the lands of our ancestors so that our children can be safe and free.

    • DaveMed

      Hopefully, Europe will once again be a continent of countries worthy of pride.

      • LovelyNordicHeidi

        Our blood is what we have now. The certainty of our racial survival is next.

        • Geo1metric

          Yes, Whites have not “lost” any of the heroism of our ancestors; it is simply not manifesting currently. But when the need arises, which I think it has now, it will surely manifest. Long live Albion.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Europe will only be free once Germany is freed from her occupying rulers. Germany is the key to everything.

      • LovelyNordicHeidi

        Germany is a very strong economic player, and if other European countries support nationalism in Germany, we can rise together.

        • D.B. Cooper

          Ha! I’ll believe it when I see it! You Germans fear Russia when you have third world criminals right in your very own back yard. I’ll bet these three gentlemen are still in Germany this very second, and they have a Fräulein to sleep with.
          10000 people rallied to protest against Germanys asylum policy

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            Do not underestimate the forces that are at work in Europe. Like communism suddenly fell, ethnonationalism can suddenly rise. I agree with you that we still need to “see” it, but Europe is a continent that we have inhabited for thousands of years and hundreds of generations, therefore it is easier to persuade ourselves that Europe is ours and only ours.

          • David Ashton

            Cooper just voices his hatred of the English, the Germans and any others trying to shake off the unwanted blight.

          • So CAL Snowman

            It’s a little much isn’t it? Every single article it’s, “You Whites (fill in the European country) LOVE black and brown men and hate other White countries, now grovel.

          • D.B. Cooper

            Europe and the GOP have both lost my respect. They won’t even bother to fight back, unless it’s about protecting diversity.

          • David Ashton

            Your respect or otherwise matters less to me than the efforts some of us continue to make within circumscribed opportunities at this stage to fight back, but even so we could do without ill-informed attempts at insult and demoralization.

          • Garrett Brown

            That’s implying where you live (America) is fighting back… we’re not. No one is right now, except a few Nordic countries and maybe France after elections.

          • DudeWheresMyCountry?

            I have no problem persuading myself that North America, Australia/NZ and South Africa are ours too. I am a biological and cultural Darwinist; we decide for ourselves if we belong somewhere on our terms.

          • I certainly have no trouble persuading myself that North America is ours; I am 3/16 Amerind: Cherokee and Tuscarora. Where am I supposed to go? I guess 13/16 of the way back to Europe would put me in the Azores, but I don’t speak Portuguese.

    • connorhus

      I hope the other Europeans and the ones here in N. America share you view because from what I see the groups who share a national pride and unity are the one’s who will have the advantage as things continue to decline.

      Me? I live around west end of Toronto, Ontario, Canada and while people in Canada are very used to very cold and length winter seasons, it is particularly cold this year. It snowed here in Toronto today.

      • LovelyNordicHeidi

        I hail from Northwestern Germany, and I like the cold more than the heat. I am one of those ice people rather than sun people. Therefore, the winter is my favourite time of the year. By the way, are you really a Korean guy?

        • I am the opposite. My own favorite months in Colorado are early May through the end of October. We get amazing summer thunderstorms, but everything turns wonderfully green. My mint and chives are already coming back up, which has me happy. My least favorite weather was the damp chill of winters in Scotland. Edinburgh is as far north as Moscow.

        • Korean guy

          I was born in a city called Ul-San. It is located at the bottom of South Korea right beside the sea. Hyundai is headquartered in Ul-San. Yes I am a purebreed South Korean guy.

          Ul-San is a wonderful city.

          Because it is located right beside the sea, roughly 50% of all restaurants are seafood restaurants. 🙂

          • Sounds good! I have lived in Santa Cruz and Sydney and loved fishing off the shore. There are some pretty good Korean restaurants in Colorado Springs, but I went to some absolutely fantastic ones in Japan when I was once loaned to a chemical company there.

    Nationalism is good; regionalism however, is bad. If the continent becomes excessively divided, it’ll be vulnerable to outside pressure and unable to act decisively if the need should arise.

    • LovelyNordicHeidi

      I do not necessarily agree. Regionalism can work. The Greeks beat the Persians while they were regionalists, remember? And maybe the Greeks beat the Persians not only because they were “superior”, but also because they were regionalists. There are certain advantages to being regionalist. Just say’n.

      • That was a good example.

        I think it’s worth risking vulnerability rather than guaranteeing genocide through immigration and liberalism.

      The EU scheme is to rip England into regions and attach these regions to parts of France and Scandinavia. The very word “England” is omitted from future EU maps. Only Wales and Scotland will be permitted to retain their geographic integrity. This, plus massive black/brown immigration, is genocide.

    • There is plenty of room for nationalist mini-states within the framework of the EU economic treaty and the NATO military alliance. Europeans need to be wary of the fact that trans-national organizations like these tend to get “mission-creep” and want increased power, much the way our own federal government effectively destroyed the notion of states’ rights after 1865.

    Why should Russia fear us? THIS is what YOU and the Republican Party let Obama do to the United States military: The Navy and Air Force both got their first female four stars thanks to Obama. Added bonus for the Navy, she’s black. Bush nominated the Army four star, and since she was a woman, Obama allowed her to remain in her position twice as long as she was supposed to. The Marines recruit depot is led by a woman general, and the Coast Guard Academy (the most diverse ever) is led by a woman. We can afford quotas when our enemies are a bunch of Stone Aged nonwhites. Vladimir Putin, however, is a different story.

          Ah yes, they had excellent snipers and fighter pilots, as good or better than ours during WW-II, without being Ellen Degenerate clones. One German major was shot down and captured by the Soviets after a very violent air battle. He demanded to meet the pilot who shot him down in German, Some of his captors spoke German, and they left then returned with the pilot who bested him. To his shock it was a petite Russian woman, who was killed two months later by another Luftwaffe fighter pilot. Ordinary Russian women such as Lidiya Litvyak were cutting edge aviators, mostly unknown to the West.

        I would love to come back “home” Heidi. However,I do not speak Czech and I’m sure my job prospects back home would not be great.

        • LovelyNordicHeidi

          Whites are good at integrating with other Whites. It might even be easier when groups of Americans rather than individuals come home, because things might be harder for the individual than the group. Learning a language is challenging, but many others have done so before you. If your ancestors were Czech, they have learned at some point in time how to speak English. I think that coming back home will be an alien idea to many Americans, because they have not yet experienced the integration with their own European brethren. Moreover, I would be glad to see Whites from around the world returning back home, because it is now that our ancestral continent needs the return of its people the most.

          I guarantee that the act of regrouping will give us many strategical advantages. Europe will change profoundly if White presence becomes stronger, and the advantage of the return of Whites will be that those who return will be disillusioned Whites, and this will have a positive effect on the European population. There will be a lot to do throughout the whole continent of our ancestors. Job prospects will improve relative to the percentage and amount of Whites. I for one envision a 100% White Europe, and I will never compromise on this vision. I think that if Whites return home en masse, this vision will definitely materialise.

          • My ancestral homeland is England, so my assimilation would be pretty easy, thankfully. Southern culture has remained so British that I really think it would be an easy change.

    “What the children of Europe are rebelling against is what their fathers, paralyzed by political correctness, refused to prevent”

    An excellent line from Buchanan. It’s always so pathetic to me how the left today tries to pretend that they it’s still the sixties and they are brave rebels when their orthodoxy is the most entrenched and oppressive mankind has ever known.

  • guest

    The enemies say that Europe is cracking up when actually, Europe is waking up.

  • italian guy

    As I said on the original article:
    The Lega Nord is not a separatist group anymore, their objective under Mr. Salvini (the new leader) is simply to deport every illegal alien and discourage any more non-white immigration and of course the repatriation of the majority of immigrants. The Venetian referendum is absurd to begin with, first of all the vote was online and with phone, without ID’s and anyone could vote thousands times… anyway they don’t want to secede trust me, it’s political terrorism from a marginal movement, why would Veneto secede and be exploited by bigger countries especially under EU dictatorship?
    The truth is that Europeans don’t want “diversity”, we don’t want to our countries to become third world and living in gated communities surrounded by brown masses incapable of living in a first world nation.

    We need Europeans in solidarity against political correctness, not in conflict against one another.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        The multicultists are fanatics. They can never be made to see the madness of their ways, which is why they must be deposed and punished for their treachery.

        • Forcing them to live with their favorite two-legged pets – instead of in our neighborhoods – would probably help. Tim Wise would be near the top of my list in this respect.

  • Geo1metric

    People want to live, work, love, and simply exist amongst their own kind. The multi-racialists seem unable to see this simple truth.

    Alternatively, they see this clearly, don’t care, and will have their way, but only by strong suppression of the natural order of things.

    In other words, they can have their way only through tyranny.

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    Scotland! Go my Celtic brothers and sisters, start the unraveling of the anti-White EU. It starts with Scotland. Catalonia and Basque next. I was working in Venice a few years ago and I was interviewing an actor that was from Rome. Part of the interview he was speaking in Italian and as we concluded I noticed one of my production assistants, who was female and Venetian was upset. I asked her what was wrong and she said that he was speaking “Roman” and that he should know better than to talk that way in Venice. She was referring to his word structure and choices, the dialect he was using and how it was disrespectful. Regional nationalism and pride is alive and well in Europa.

    • David Ashton

      The SNP is a multi-ethnic welfare-socialist ramp for the Salmond gang.

      • DudeWheresMyCountry?

        The point is people want to get away from London and Brussels. Secession will make pro nationalism mainstream. People will more and more realize that they don’t have to follow the dogma that their country is a colony for the failed cultures of the world… that they can get back to looking out for what is best for their heritage, their way of life. It is a positive step.

        • Long Live Dixie

          I see the point, but we also need to remember that the SNP wants to increase Third World immigration to Scotland, wants to remain in the EU, and their leader – Salmond – said the Scots are a nation of mongrels. So, while Scotland’s secession might invigorate independence-minded parties elsewhere, it also might kill Scotland in the process.

          I support Scottish independence, but I’m pretty thoroughly disgusted by Salmond.

          • What earthly good is an independent Scotland if it imports Fourth-World hordes until ethnic Scots are a minority in their own nation? Moreover, the socialist bent of the SNP gripes me as well. Do they really want to drive away business?

      • anew

        It’s hard to say how Scotland itself would turn-out long term, but Scottish secession would immediately move the center of UK politics several degrees to the right. It would be like if Michigan and New England left the US. Unfortunately, while the Tories pretty much always win England, they win by a plurality. So, I don’t know the ins-and-outs of British politics, but my impression is that the remaining ‘labor’ portion of the Labour party comes from mostly from Scotland and the North of England, so if Scotland leaves, would they just merge with the Lib. Dems, and remain competitive?

        • David Ashton

          Who knows? Speaking for myself I support a United Kingdom, but not the political class (including closet republicans) that run it. If Salmond wants to take the Somali, Gypsy, Pakistani and African city-dwellers from our previously English cities to fill his empty highlands and enrich the Gaelic crofters with their vibrant diversity, let him get on with. But I prefer a Britain for the British.

    • “Scotland! Go my Celtic brothers and sisters, start the unraveling of the anti-White EU. It starts with Scotland. ”

      Sounds good, but I had heard that Scotland had been taken over by PC.

      • DudeWheresMyCountry?

        Yes, all our White societies have been brainwashed, but we have reached the saturation point and people are less and less afraid to break orthodoxy. Also, many are realizing if we don’t have multiculturalism there is no need for PC and all its Marxist, egalitarian dogma. Borders, language, culture is what matters… with the degradation of the West through immigration and progressivism most are seeing that they don’t want what it has to offer and know without control over their destiny the only other alternative is the third worldization of all White homelands. Self determination is what everyone wants for themselves.

  • Uncle Bob

    It’s about damned time! If any one of those places can get free, they would serve as a beacon of hope for the rest of us.

    “Many northern Italians believe they have more in common with Swiss than Romans, Neapolitans or Sicilians.”

    I’d wager the Sicilians bother them the most. “Romans” might be used as a reference to various foreign groups which do not belong in Italy.

    • jane johnson

      My grandparents came from Genoa, and to this day, their descendants are “disdainful” of their southern countrymen. Physically, most of us look more Nordic than what one would describe as Mediterranean with blond/light brown (sadly, gray now) hair and blue eyes.

      • Geo1metric

        I worked in Rome for several years; some of my co-workers were of the “upper crust” of Roman society. They openly referred to any part of Italy from Napoli south as “Africa”.

        • jane johnson

          Right, it’s like the Mason-Dixon Line without the line. The north-south issue was even touched on in “The Sopranos”, when Carmela’s mother commented on how “dark” Meadow was at birth (presumably alluding to Tony’s people, who were from Avelino, in the south of Italy).

          • Quido

            My family is from around Avellino and my father had hazel eyes and my sisters eyes are as blue as her Irish husband’s That area of Italy was given to retired Roman soldiers. at one time That being the provence of Campania.

        • Did you actually get to Naples? The whole circular bay is a collapsed volcanic crater. Mount Vesuvius is just a flanking cinder-cone. Geologically the area is amazing.

      • Sick of it

        Sicilians are not so much Mediterranean as part Negroid. It’s not popular to say that around here, but it’s true nonetheless.

    • Robert Griffith

      The whole “Southern Italians are not real Europeans” is pure horse sh*t. My mother is from the southern tip of Italy. From her ancestral home, one can actually see the eastern coast of Sicily. Calabrese, as well are Sicilians are still very European in both appearance and culture.

      I think modern pop culture has alot to do with this. I have seen several Hollywood productions where Sicilians are alluded to being mixed with African sub Saharan Negros. It is as though the movers and shakers in modern culture are trying to perpetuate this belief (false belief) that Congolese tribesman and Pygmies were running around conquering what is now Sicily. Absolutely untrue, and a outright lie. Of course the Blacks in America run with this notion as fast as they can. I suppose for a people who were living in the stone age, the notion of “conquering” someone is very enticing.

      Do Southern Italians have some north African Arab admixture (Think Khadaffi)? Yes, most likely. If there was any significant African Negro blood in the region you would not get people who look like Al Pacino, or Robert Deniro. Instead you would get highly noticeable Mullatoes like Obama or the Brazillian soccer team.LOL!!!

      • Sick of it

        The pictures I’ve seen of hundreds of Sicilians have shown a quite obvious Negroid admixture. Perhaps you would also declare that Ashkenazi Jews have no Mongoloid admixture and that American Indians are white enough to be considered Nordic. I’ll agree with you regarding actual Southern Italians, but not mixed race folk from Sicily.

  • Max

    If this really takes hold, these millions of EU darkies will have yet another reason to seek “asylum” over here because they are being “persecuted”. They will swarm into Canada which is run by a bunch of looney (not the coin) gay, liberals and from thence to US (in addition to the direct imports). They started coming into the US a long time ago via Canada which seems thrilled to have any warm body immigrate.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Canada is notorious for having the world’s highest per capita immigration intake. Any warm body will do, as long as it’s not white. The Canadian government goes out of its way to bring in the dullest and the worst immigrants they can get their hands on. Ever since Brian Mulroney made that fateful decision in 1987 to raise immigration levels, the country has been subject to an endless rampage of brutal, vicious 3rd world immigrants.

  • I hope nationalism gives rebirth to traditionalism.

    With Euro nationalism on the rise and hopefully triumphant, the best fallout would be that the White Euro peoples reject US influences, cultural, economic, and military.

    It sure would be nice to see somebody in power in Europe pull out of NATO, say no to rap “music,” and no to gay marriage.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Actually, the best fallout would be repatriation of all 3rd world immigrants and their descendants and the creation of a militarized Fortress Europe, to make sure the non-whites stay out.

      • Speaking of Europe, do you know what happened to Spartacus? He hasn’t posted in a couple of weeks. I wonder if Romania is gearing up to get involved in the Ukraine situation.

    The big question in my mind is, if all these nations really do break up, will they learn anything from all this? Or, in two or three decades, will they succumb once again to immigration pressures and be ready to break up all over again into even smaller ethno-states? Unfortunately, past experience has shown that if there’s anything to learn from history, it’s that we learn absolutely nothing from history.

      I might point out that I’m not talking about the CSA of the 1860s. I’m talking about a reconstituted CSA for the 21st century. I think it would give us a good chance for a whites only ethnostate in the 21st century.

    Some interesting facts I read recently :

    Germany and France get a lot of aslyum applications –

    # of asylum applications European countries received in 2013

    Germany – 76165
    France – 61455
    UK – 22340
    Italy – 16185
    Sweden – 45000

    Percentage of asylum granted –

    Sweden – 54%
    Germany – 26.5%
    France – 17%
    UK – 38%
    Italy – 64%

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      Yes, we have our overly fair share of parasites in Germany. But this sort of news makes me hopeful.

  • The English are going to have to bend over backward to appease Scotland. If Scotland secedes, the Royal Navy will instantly lose their base at Faslane. This is the only RN base that is equipped to service ballistic missile submarines. If they keep an independent Scotland happy, they might be able to lease the base, but it would be veeeeery expensive, as Scots have no sense of humor at all when it comes to money.

  • MBlanc46

    Globalization and nationalism. The latter an equal and opposite reaction to the former.

  • jane johnson

    Well said, and I completely agree.

  • IstvanIN

    Generally I am against altering the borders of Western Europe. Will an independent Scottish Republic really leave the EU? Will it really defend the right of an ethnic Scotland to remain Scottish? Or will it become another tiny, militarily defenseless nation that will eventually succumb to multi-racialism? There is no reason that Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland can not keep identities and remain part of the UK. On the other hand look at Ireland and what they call the New Irish. They became an independent dominion in 1922 and abolished the Crown in 1937. And now the Emerald Island is becoming the Nigerian Island. Independence does not mean ethno-nationalism.

    I see no point to breaking up Spain, Italy or Belgium. Tinier and tinier nations that can not be defended, that can easily be bombed into submission by the US, like Serbia. I would rather see those people work together to:

    1) Remove US bases from Europe.
    2) End the European Union as it currently exists.
    3) Remove the non-European elements from Europe.
    4) Work together to form a common defense against outsiders. A common European defense force.
    5) Allow each nation to have its own internal laws independent of each other. No EU interference in constitutional and legal areas that are purely local.
    6) Encourage trade among European countries without competing with each other. Let Europe compete with the outside world to the benefit of Europe. Sort of like Japan.

    Just getting rid of the EU and the foreign elements would allow the Europeans to regain a sense of self and provide work for their young.

    • Long Live Dixie

      Generally I am against altering the borders of Western Europe.

      I’m not. People do best among those of like kind, not living in artificial states that don’t reflect ethnic identity.

      And now the Emerald Island is becoming the Nigerian Island. Independence does not mean ethno-nationalism.

      Irish nationalists are an odd bunch. They want to conquer Ulster but they have done nothing to protect Irish blood in the 4/5 of that island that is in their jurisdiction. They’re really just Marxists.

      I see no point to breaking up Spain, Italy or Belgium. Tinier and tinier nations that can not be defended, that can easily be bombed into submission by the US, like Serbia.

      You shouldn’t assume that every independence movement means smaller countries. If Belgium breaks up, it would only be logical for Wallonia to go to France and Flanders to go to the Netherlands.

    • Petronius

      Two thoughtful posts (IstvanIN and Dixie), each full of good points.

      I would like to add that Scottish separation would be a boon to England, as it would enable England to throw off the yoke of the Labour Party, and perhaps get a grip on immigration, and end the outflow of money from the South to the North.

      In the event of separation it’s also possible that Scotland could become self-governing but remain within the UK for defense purposes, as is now the case with the Isle of Man.

          Correct. I have thought for a long time that the two parties were purposely designed to “divide and conquer”.

          Note also that the Federal Election Commission (FEC) regulates both parties. The FEC is part of the government.

          You seem to be replying to a point that I did not make.

    Scots and Catalans believe they are a people with a culture, history and identity separate from the nations to which they belong.

  • Someone mentioned New Nation. Checked it out last night and they seem to be doing an admirable job enlightening people on black-on-White crime. I then visited the page devoted to the ‘Polar Bear,’ who is apparently the alpha male New Nationalist, and found out that I am ‘banned.’ For how long? ‘Forever.’ Due to? ‘No reason given.’ Which means I have reached the new high of being banned from a site where I have never previously been, of course before posted any comments. At least places like Huffington, Atlantic or the Wall Street Journal ban you only after you have dared write something they disagree with on their own site. Just as well, since I don’t really have the time to frequent there anyway, and in their manifesto, or whatever it would be called, they seemed to be saying that in this New Nation, Asians and Hispanics would be as long as they don’t cause any trouble. Given what is happening demographically, it is hard to see how that would work, but if they can wake up more Whites to black-on-White crime, that will be a helpful thing. (Maybe I would have been allowed an audience with the Polar Bear if I were Asian or Hispanic?)

    The present Russian/Ukraine situation is interesting. I think its all about Russia wanting a warm water port and access to the Mediterranean (as it has always been) and having a bulwark against an increasingly destabilizing Muslim world, which is located at their “soft underbelly.”

  • Bossman

    Gobineau is a name that I’m vaguely familiar with from reading American history. He was a racist and said something about white colonial Americans being inferior to Europeans and he was wrong. There is another guy called Spengler who wrote a book called, The Decline of the West, and he was most mostly right. Europe is in decline because North America and Asia are in the ascendant. In his words power shifted from the center to the periphery. And none of that has to do with non-white immigrants.

    • silviosilver

      Firstly, being flooded by hordes of stupid, white-hating immigrants isn’t going to help a country improve its international standing. That should be too obvious for words, but apparently isn’t. Then there’s the social effect to consider. In a nutshell, huge numbers of racial aliens simply makes life less livable. It really is that simple. Your opposition to these basic points is persistent but it is very poorly argued.

      PS – If you think the Gobineau’s basic point was that colonial Americans were inferior to Europeans you’re too stupid to take part in any further debate. It’s one thing to find WNish excesses distasteful, but it’s another thing entirely to babble excitedly like a demented kook.

    When break up happens, it happens so fast you cant even process what’s going on around you. I lived through the collapse of USSR, and just months before it happened most didn’t even suspect what awaits them.

    EU is a deadbeat, it exists purely on sheer, stubborn will of unelected, Marxist politicians.
    Once European countries regain control over their territories, they will be better equipped to deal with the immigration mess they’re in. Fingers crossed.

    • I was predicting the breakup of the USSR about five years before it happened. Over-militarized multi-ethnic empires have a very poor historical track record, so this was an easy call to make. I was also predicting German reunification at the same time, so this was in about 1986.

      I was not suprised about the recent developments concerning the Crimea. This is overwhelmingly ethnic Russian, and was not administered by the Ukraine until Nikita Khrushchev – an ethnic Ukrainian – transferred it from Russia to the Ukraine after Stalin died. What we just saw was going to happen eventually.

      Aside from the easy ones like Iran versus Saudi Arabia and India versus Pakistan my own pick for an interesting hot-spot is Peru versus Ecuador. Peru took about half of Ecuador in 1941, and in spite of the treaty signed in Brasilia in 1998, those muchachos really hate each other. The Colombians and Venezuelans aren’t getting along so well, either.

      When it happens, it does happen fast.
