In 1972, Wilmot Robertson wrote The Dispossessed Majority, a book that set the tone for the new pro-White movement that followed the demise of Jim Crow. White Nationalists have seen themselves as a beleaguered minority ever since. We see our culture mocked, soiled, and degraded. We see our nation controlled by a hostile Jewish elite that has nothing but contempt for our racial kin. We don’t see ourselves as a privileged elite anymore.
White Nationalists can point to a laundry list of mile markers in White dispossession: Brown v. Board of Education (1954), the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act of 1965, Immigration Act of 1965, Loving v. Virginia (1967), the creation of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, the IRCA amnesty of 1986, the Immigration Act of 1990, the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States. With each passing year, the memory of the White Republic fades and racialists burn with new grievances.
In Blood and Politics, Leonard Zeskind made an interesting point which I haven’t yet found cause to comment on. White Christians, at least a certain sector of them, look at the world in much the same way we do. They share with us a rhetoric of dispossession. In their worldview, America was once a Christian nation, but it is now controlled by “secular humanists” pushing a “liberal agenda.” They resent the “liberals” who control Hollywood and the MSM who are constantly pouring scorn on their values.
White Christians have their own milestones of Christian dispossession: McCollum v. Board of Education (1948), Engel v. Vitale (1962), Epperson v. Arkansas (1968), Roe v. Wade (1973), Stone v. Graham (1980), Edwards v. Aquillard (1987), Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), and the ongoing War on Christmas. Yesterday, Trevor Lynch reminded me of this. He pointed out that “Christ” has been literally excised out of X-mas. Christmas has been replaced by PC phrases such as “Happy Holidays” and “Season’s Greetings.” Fake holidays like Hanukkah and Kwanzaa have been elevated to compete with Christmas.
A culture war is being waged to de-racialize and de-Christianize White Americans. In his recent interview, E. Michael Jones made this point. This culture war is also being waged by the same group of people, largely Jews, and the worst Gentiles they use their economic and media power to promote. These people are usually exemplars of vicious behavior (expressive individualists) who lack any solid racial, ethnic, or religious identity. The ideal that is constantly promoted among White Christians is adolescent rebellion against authority and traditional values.
Just some food for thought. In the future, I plan to write more about this. It is another angle to the dispossession story that previously hasn’t aroused my interest.
