This is the sixth installment in this series.
1.) We need to create a base for ourselves. An elite needs a constituency. In 2007, a Gallup poll found that 20% of White Americans disapprove of interracial marriage. In South Carolina (1998) and Alabama (2000), 38% and 40% of all voters respectively wanted to keep the state anti-miscegenation laws. The percentage of White voters was even higher. In 2004, Alabama voters chose to keep segregationist language in the state constitution. In his 1990 Senate campaign in Louisiana, David Duke won the majority of the White vote in that state.
There are millions of Whites in the Southeast who still cling to traditional racial views. Only a miniscule fraction of these have ever heard of White Nationalism. There is no grassroots organization on the ground trying to recruit these people into the movement. It speaks volumes about the disarray on our end of the political spectrum that even the people who would be sympathetic to our cause have never been exposed to our ideas.
Suppose for a moment that we were able to recruit 10% of the White Americans who disapprove of interracial marriage. This is tapping into only a fraction of the explicit whiteness that now exists. That would translate into about 4,460,109 supporters. According to Leonard Zeskind, White Nationalism has about 30,000 hardcore activists and between 200,000 to 250,000 active sympathizers.
Do the math. We have plenty of room to grow.
2.) We need to do a big push on the Southern college campuses. Actually, we need to recruit everywhere, but racialism is less taboo in the South than it is elsewhere. I keep thinking to myself: if we can’t win in Mississippi or South Carolina, we are doomed. A significant fraction of the student body on the Deep South campuses are racially aware. A fraction of those are intellectually inclined and would be receptive to our message, but right now we have no way of reaching them.
Some dismiss the idea of building a mass movement altogether. In my next post, I will delve into the issue of elitism vs. populism.
We should also keep in mind that up to the 1950s, a Gallup poll showed nearly 100% of white Americans were against interracial marriage.
Dates of repeal of US anti-miscegenation laws by state:
I’ve been thinking the same, on a more local level. Southern Illinois (I’m from northern Illinois) has a longheld reputation for being racially aware. There is a growing and organized secessionist movement (“Southern Illinois Now”), jobs and resources have always been somewhat scarce, and there is a fear and loathing of this area of the state from non-whites living in Illinois.
My idea was to use the secessionist movement to ferret out several individuals receptive to a more revolutionary message. The group has a Facebook presence, making contact and communication relatively easy. I would be able to use my knowledge of the area and existing family ties to establish trust and credibility.
I’d suggest this as a formula. Locate a prexisting racially aware community. The closer to you, the better. Establish contacts, select out the few individuals receptive to the message of revolutionary white nationalism….and organize a resistance campaign in that area. You’ll likely have plenty of cover.
Anti-miscegenation laws would be the kiss of death to our cause.Neo-confederatism is a sterile,defunct approach.
Like our racial antagonists;Jews,Africans,Arabs etc.,we need to think internationally not parochially.We need to tap into the vein of European Rightists,in particular Continental Europe.
As members of a world-wide effort we enhance our position.
That’s an awesome strategy! I hope you don’t mind if I register http://www.hoosiernation.us, write a book making a case for Indiana’s secession, develop working relationships with receptive local politicians, and foster a real world network of activists and supporters.
But seriously, fantasy aside. That’s the kind of simple hard work that we’re going to have to start doing at some point if we hope to accomplish anything. Go out there and make it happen! You do realize that if you led a secession movement for Little Egypt, you would have to call yourself the Pharaoh.
These are encouraging statistics Hunter.
I look forward to your thoughts on elitism vs populism. I wasn’t exactly joking when I posted the Big Buck Bunny link a few days ago, because it concerns populism, which is where our battle must ultimately be won.
That video has nearly one million views! If the characters in the video included a fat, nerdy, white guy instead of the rabbit, and the rodents were black, hispanic and asian, people would see it, laugh and perhaps feel more sympathetic to our cause.
Now, I am not suggesting you fellows should start making videos, though it is a good idea, but you should be thinking of your target market. Flowery prose does not impress average people, it makes them feel insecure. I am not crazy about this, but we live in an entertainment age. There is so much informational entropy out there that we need to entertain people to get their attention.
Just think if some US states elected a house of the state legislature-all states have bicameral except for Nebraska-by Proportional Representation. You might see states with a bloc of openly pro-white legislators. The successes in Europe of Geert Wilders and the Freedom Party of Austria suggest such an outcome.
Logically speaking, the case for the above reform is close to irrefutable if you claim to support representative democracy-as the official USGOV propaganda line of course does. There is no utility in having two mirror-image houses elected by the same method. Since no one seems interested in switching to unicameral-except for a maroon like Jesse Ventura-representative democracy is best served by electing one house via the traditional Anglo-American first-past-the-post single-member district system and the other by elected by PR with a statewide-list. This would allow for various ideological and other minorities that do not get represented under the FPTP system to get a voice in the legislature.It would also do more than any single reform to break up the two-party duopoly.
Israel and Netherlands elect their national parliaments by the party list with single national constituency method. You simply replicate this at the state level with a single house. The clincher: Israel does it so it must be good. 🙂
There is mass disillusionment with the two major parties so it might be possible to pass something like this in a state with initiative and referendum. But it would take some financial backing-I don’t see where that would come from-and need support from a fairly broad coalition.
This might be something to try after an effective state or local organization has already been built.
There’s no doubt in my mind that this can’t succeed without a mass movement. Revolutions always must draw strength from popular support. What I question (and will be happy to be proved wrong on this point) is the willingness of a significant fraction of the current society being willing to openly espouse ideas as reviled and heretical as this, in the absence of far greater social tumult.
Elitism and populism are not in fact contradictory approaches, but complementary as elites are needed to guide the populous in realizing their interests. A two-tiered recruitment strategy may thus be called for.
Wiki….you’re missing my point.
Use these initiatives like ‘Southern Illinois Now’ as preselectors for teambuilding a WN cadre in an area, an area you are already familiar with. Prozium alludes to a base for WN activity. I agree, but don’t think choosing one geographical area for the nation’s WN ‘base’ is practical. I favor the National Alliance’s strategy (I was a member, under Dr. Pierce) – local cells organized by local people; with an Internet presence maintained by the vanguard for inspirational purposes.
Secessionist movements, German-American clubs, environmentalist meetings, church groups – all harbor at least a few racially aware potential activists. To move this into the next phase requires those of us in the vanguard to physically/socially reach out…to just a few people. We should not be interested in signing on to doomed causes, but to using them to conveniently identify those who are potential WNs.
We have to get off of the Internet and get out into the public. And this time……not for literature distribution.
That is essentially my view. I’m writing the post now.
“The clincher: Israel does it so it must be good.”
Ha ha, good one.
Well, Israhell does this sort of thing also, so this kind of policy on race and social mixing must be FANTASTIC then –
[…] In a related development, the Israeli media reported this month that residents of Pisgat Zeev, a large Jewish settlement in the midst of Palestinian neighbourhoods in East Jerusalem, had formed a vigilante-style patrol to stop Arab men from mixing with local Jewish girls.
Hostility to intimate relationships developing across Israel’s ethnic divide is shared by many Israeli Jews, who regard such behaviour as a threat to the state’s Jewishness. One of the few polls on the subject, in 2007, found that more than half of Israeli Jews believed intermarriage should be equated with “national treason”.
“Since the state’s founding in 1948, analysts have noted, a series of legal and administrative measures have been taken by Israel to limit the possibilities of close links developing between Jewish and Arab citizens, the latter comprising a fifth of the population.
“Mr Hakak said the municipality had created a hotline that parents and friends of the Jewish women could use to inform on them.
“We can’t tell the girls what to do but we can send a psychologist to their home to offer them and their parents advice,” he said.
“Motti Zaft, the deputy mayor, told the Ynet website that the municipality was also cracking down on city homeowners who illegally subdivide apartments to rent them cheaply to single Arab men looking for work in the Tel Aviv area. He estimated that several hundred Arab men had moved into the city as a result.
“Petah Tikva’s hostility to Arab men mixing with local Jewish women is shared by other communities.
“In Pisgat Zeev, a settlement of 40,000 Jews, some 35 Jewish men are reported to belong to a patrol known as “Fire for Judaism” that tries to stop interracial dating.
And, finally –
“According to its website, the organisation receives more than 100 calls a month about Jewish women living with Arab men, both in Israel and the West Bank. It launches “military-like rescues [of the women] from hostile Arab villages” in co-ordination with the police and army. ”
Israeli drive to prevent Jewish girls dating Arabs, The National, 25 September 2009
‘Military-like’ rescues ‘in co-ordination’ with the police and army.
I guess when we get our ethno-state we’ll certainly use this as a blueprint and roadmap for future race relations, since AmeriKWA’s “best friend” and ‘only deMOCKracy in the Middle East does these things!
“Elitism and populism are not in fact contradictory approaches, but complementary as elites are needed to guide the populous in realizing their interests. A two-tiered recruitment strategy may thus be called for.”
This is of course why many in the HBD crowd decry Populism as a ‘loser strategy’ whose primary appeal is only for ‘Proles’, and any ‘self-respecting’ White person should avoid it like the plague, lest they be ‘mistaken’ for a ‘Prole’ themselves.
And if you really want to show your bonifides, and you lean politically/culturally Right, and wish to ‘prove’ yourself an “elite” ‘house honkey’ to the multi-kult, well then, go and date and, even ‘better’, mate with a mongoloid or a Jew — since you know, their soooo much ‘better’ than ‘typical White people’.
After all, isn’t this what the ‘data dorks’ tell, and so often intimate, to us?
This (deliberately) demoralizing phenomenon is, of course, the principal reason why we are in the deracinated, existential crisis and state that we face today.
We are being deprived of our rightful leaders, since, as you said, the populous (of ANY race), need leadership elites ‘to guide them in realizing their interests’.
Just another day in the life of The Dispossessed Majority.
“… any ’self-respecting’ White person should avoid it like the plague …”
This should more fully read: “… any ‘self-respecting” and *status-seeking* White person …”
There, that’s more like it.
I’ll second what Vercingetorix has suggested about entertainment. Delving into this realm may yield a decent return. The likes of Mel Brooks and Howard Stern have had a field day lampooning Whites. Why not begin to turn the tables via video? We may not be able to produce big budget movies at this time, but creating short video segments, internet radio shows, maybe even a late night type show, with guests, shown on Youtube.
Comedy sure would go quite a ways in breaking down the angry- tattooed- skinhead image that plagues the White racialist movement.
(Just some wild thoughts I needed to purge from my head.)
Isn’t the CofCC a group that tries to represent white racial interests in the Deep South? My understanding is that the CofCC is an offshoot of the segregationist movement of the 60’s and that it has ties to local and state GOP organizations. These are the people that Jared Taylor is affiliated with.
“A two-tiered recruitment strategy may thus be called for.”
Will you attend the upcoming American Renaissance conference?
I am reasonably confident that I will be attending this time.
Re: two-tiered recruitment strategy.
1.) We need a few sites that cater exclusively to the 18-25 year old demographic. I will address this in an upcoming post.
2.) We need a higher tier – sites like Takimag or LewRockwell.com – which can funnel up the best prospects from the lower tier as they mature.
