Remember the debates we had last year?
(1) The South vs. The Northwest?
(2) Should we work within the system?
(3) Should we try to mainstream our message?
(4) Should we reach out to ordinary conservatives?
My position, which was highly controversial at the time, was that White Southerners should stay where they are, work within the system, mainstream our ideas, and take advantage of hardening White racial attitudes, America’s terminal economic decline, and the ideological bankruptcy of the DWL racial consensus – by pushing the envelope – to push our views into a larger audience.
Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Arizona’s version of E-Verify, setting a precedent that was immediately applied to the Hazelton immigration law, which had been locked by a lower federal court. The new precedent removed the legal cloud over similar local ordinances in other cities like Fremont, Nebraska.
Arizona broke the dam. Now Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina have followed.
The ACLU and SPLC are suing to block the new laws in federal court. Will the Obama administration join their lawsuits and make immigration a polarizing wedge issue in an election year? Will the Supreme Court uphold Arizona’s SB 1070? How will Whites react to the growing perception of federal tyranny?
Who could have ever predicted that?
* Who ultimately proved more valuable to White people? Nikki Haley or Byron Widner?
