I’m officially joining the so-called White Money Movement. I’ve spent the last week here in Virginia learning how utterly amateur the White Nationalist movement in America is compared to our closest ideological competitors. These people understand an inescapable truth of political reality: without money, you can’t do anything, end of story.
You can’t fund full time professional activists. You can’t attract professional writers and editors. You can’t bankroll political campaigns. You can’t hold public events that build community solidarity and attract media attention. In so many words, nothing gets done. Money is the mother’s milk of politics. Politics is how we put our ideas into action. This site is about as political as they come.
There are two things the average person fears more than death: public speaking and fundraising. Opinion polls have literally shown that many people would rather die than ask others for money. They would rather be in the casket at their own funeral than alive and delivering the eulogy. Personally, I have always been one of those types, but I have since learned more about how our political system operates and now realize that (no matter what Jim Giles says) fundraising is an inescapable aspect of it.
At a minimum, I think this website should be self supporting. The WordPress software is free. The hosting and the URL cost about $100 dollars a year. That’s peanuts. I have always paid it out of my own pocket. Looking ahead, I would like to pay a clerk a small sum to update the WordPress software, take weekly database backups, moderate comments, get us into search engines, and firmly establish OD on YouTube and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. We need a graphics designer and a webmaster to install a frontpage for original articles and a separate news section. I also want to create a tip jar for the writers to encourage them to raise the tone of their posts.
I don’t have a PayPal account right now. It should be up some time this week though. If you like what we are doing here and can financially contribute, feel free to help us out from time to time. If you are unable to do so, write content or advertise us on other sites. We are trying to build an institution here like LewRockwell.com, DailyKos, or Takimag. With a reliable revenue stream, White Nationalism will become competitive with libertarianism and kosher conservatism. This site will spawn imitators and a virtuous cycle of discourse poisoning will ensue. We might even show up on the SPLC radar screen.
