American Tradition

Is Mitt the Man on the White Horse?


“It was only after I got to Detroit that I got to know Negroes and began to be able to evaluate them and I began to recognize that some Negroes are better and more capable than lots of whites.”
– Gov. George Romney

Matt Parrott has a hilarious article up at Counter-Currents about how Mitt Romney has a “religious conviction” to lead America through “this time of darkness.”

Mormonism is labeled the “American Tradition” – something that would have shocked Yankees and Southerners, and even the Mormons themselves, who moved to Utah to get away from the Gentiles.

There is nothing “traditional” about the Church of Latter Day Saints. It evolved in the Burned Over District during the Second Great Awakening in western New York State, arguably the single most untraditional place in the entire country at the time (this was before the founding of San Francisco), which was the seedbed of utopian communes, the free love movement, abolitionism, and women’s suffrage.

Transcendentalism, Unitarianism, and Mormonism were all symptoms of the collapse of Christianity in New England in the early nineteenth century. It represented a Yankee rejection of the Congregationalist Church.

George Romney, who was born in Mexico to a polygamist family, was a devout anti-racist and a strong supporter of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As the governor of Michigan, Romney famously led a “civil rights march” in Detroit to express his “solidarity” with the marchers in Selma. He was a Rockefeller Republican who fought tirelessly for a civil rights plank at the 1964 Republican National Convention.

Mitt Romney’s father presided over the catastrophic 12th Street Riot in Detroit. As HUD Secretary under Richard Nixon, Romney’s “missionary zeal” to “save America” could be seen in his passionate support for the causes of affirmative action and housing desegregation in Michigan.

The Tea Party hates Mitt Romney because he is correctly perceived as a Northeastern liberal from the Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party. Unsurprisingly, the Republican establishment is also backing him as their candidate in the presidential race.

Just a few years ago, Mitt Romney was a supporter of abortion, comprehensive immigration reform, and the government takeover of healthcare. The conservative base has very good reasons to distrust Romney as he is a throwback to the liberal Republicanism that used to characterize the Eisenhower GOP.

Even within the Church of Latter Day Saints, the Romney clan was part of the liberal faction that challenged and toppled the traditional practice of racial discrimination against Negroid-Americans. They have been a curse to Utah, Massachusetts, and Michigan.

If Mitt Romney turns out to be anything like his father, then god help us all in the South. Even a buffoon like Herman Cain or Rick Perry isn’t nearly as threatening as a New England saint on a divine mission to “save America.”

Be afraid.

  1. Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution states:

    “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

    Crowley, where do you find anything that refers to parents?

  2. Belatedly, I did some fact checking and found the opinions you are referring to, Crowley. I disagree with them, but I must admit I didn’t know that mainstream political scientists held them. Now I know. 🙂

  3. Romney was correct,some Negroes are better and more capable than lots of whites,..
    some = a dozen
    lots of = a hundred..

    but does that mean before he went to Michigan, he thought not a single negro is more capable than any of whites? that proves romney was very stupid….. he should not be trusted.

  4. Jack Ryan & Hunter,

    I am not offering a broad based defense of George Romney as a good politician, honest conservative or friend of the White race. He had a terrible record on many things, to be sure. Here’s some highlights from Wikipedia:

    Romney entered politics by participating in a state constitutional convention to rewrite the Michigan Constitution during 1961–1962. He was elected Governor of Michigan in 1962 and was re-elected by increasingly large margins in 1964 and 1966. Romney worked to overhaul the state’s financial and revenue structure, culminating in Michigan’s first state income tax, and greatly expanded the size of state government. Romney was a strong supporter of the American Civil Rights Movement while governor. He briefly represented moderate Republicans against conservative Republican Barry Goldwater during the 1964 U.S. presidential election. He requested the intervention of federal troops during the 1967 Detroit riot.

    However, the one good thing he did do as Gov was to get enough men with guns (including machine guns and tanks!) into Detroit to end the feral negro bongo-party taking place there in July of 1967.

    Because this site is dedicated to honest history I felt it was important to at least acknowledge that small fact, which I am aware of because I was there.

  5. Discard wrote: Jackson: FYI, both the U.S. Army and U.S.M.C. were sent to Los Angeles for the Koon riot of 1991.

    I was unaware of that, but see from reading Wikipedia that you’re right. 4000 “soldiers and Marines” were sent down from Ft. Ord to quell the disturbance. Thanks for the information.

  6. Back to George Romney: the interesting thing is that he was a Republican. Now in the North the Democrats were never the party of resistance to civil rights (that I am aware of). The GOP, as far as I recall, were always positioned as the more moderate, centrist, less radical party.

    I’m going to talk to my 80 year-old mom who lived in Detroit for most of her life to find out who the alterantives to Romney were. In the South in that era people voted for Republicans because they wanted an end to Jim Crow. In the North I don’ t think that dynamic was in play. It may be that the alternatives to Romney were even more radical. Michican, because of the large organized labor component, frequently toyed with far-left politicians in that era. Many of the most notorious leftists of the sixties were products of Michigan: Tom Hayden, John Sinclair, the White Panther Party, the SDS organization, etc.

    Perhaps pastor Miles supported him because the alternative was far worse?

  7. Jackson, very good answer! Maybe Romney was better than the leftys at that time. I wonder what Tom Metzers take would be on this? Check out on google: And this is only one state…… Shows just how far gone America is.

  8. Read on Metzgers web site New and Views how Boxer and Polosi made every thing south of Los Angles a free zone for illigals? Customs, Bordert Patrol etc. have to let them alone. If an American goes to Mexico, he is under strict rules of Mexican Government. No Protesting or participating in rallies, etc! The US should have same kind of immigration laws that Mexico has! Woody Woolridge on has alot on this…..

  9. Matt, As long as his parents are natural born citizens his being born out of the USA isn’t something I would grasp at. I do have an issue with one or both parents not being natural born citizens for the uncomplicated reason that the Constitution clearly forbids it for a president.

    Thank you Jackson.

    I have lots of personal experiences with many different types of White Americans and Whites from places like France, England, Ireland, Montenegro, Germany – including Socialist East Germany when it was divided (East Germans were nice White folks, not spoiled or corrupt – see the movie Goodbye Lenin about the final days of Socialist East Germany). I can honestly say that the White Latter Day Saints I have known and lived next to in San Diego and Chicago are some of the nicest, most positive White people I have ever met anywhere in the world. The Latter Day Saints/Mormons have a unique history and suffered extreme persecutions in the middle of 19th century – suffered persecutions as bad or worse as anything White Southerners experienced during Reconstruction. Missouri Governor Boggs actually signed an “extermination order” against the (all White) Mormon community in 1838:

    “Boggs precipitously directed that “the Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the State if necessary for the public peace”

    I admire the White Latter Day Saints LDS/Mormons for so many reasons, including the fact that they survived brutal persecutions in the Midwest, picked up and actually did a NorthWest migration (see, defied the Federal Government and many corrupt state governments to start new White communities – a virtual new White nation. Today White Latter Day Saints are thriving in so many ways where other White Americans are falling down – American White Latter Day Saints have the highest birthrate of any White community in North America, with the possible exception of White Amish (folks can check me on this).

    That said, contemporary White LDS/Mormons are not perfect from our perspective, they have clear weaknesses. As I mention in my article published here on O.D.

    Hanging out with White Mormons

    the Latter Day Saints have attempted to go mainstream and renounce their “RACIST” past. LDS missionaries are spreading the gospel to all nations – and lots of NW are signing up for the right to go live with beautiful, wholesome White LDS folks in Southern California, Salt Lake City – the result are horrors like Tongan and Samoan street gangs in places where no one had ever seen a non White before 1985.

    Contemporary White LDS are not street fighters – if you are looking for any LDS/Mormons to get down and dirty and fight with feral Negro criminals, put down Black riots – that’s not going to happen. We need to go with Italian Americans Like Frank Rizzo, Joe Arpaio, tough lower class Whites from places like Lowell Mass. Detroit MI used to hire White police officers from the South under the idea/truth that these Whites were the only ones tough enough to keep the Black/N(#*$@# criminals down. Well, in 1967 we didn’t have enough tough Whites in Detroit from anywhere to keep the Black criminals/N($#@ down.

    As for George Romney or Mitt Romney and how they did/will deal with Black riots, Black crime; I can say with 100% confidence that few if any White LDS will encourage or incite Blacks to riot or to even have an alcoholic drink, or stay up after 10:15 PM. There were, are few if any White LDS looking to aid a BRA takeover of the White Southern states. Southern Evangelical Protestants hatred of the LDS Church is simply envy and the theological hairsplitting that White Christian churches have always done.

    George Romney was a lot like Gerald Ford – another nice, Michigan political leader. neither Gerald Ford or George Romney would stand against the 1960s Civil Rights Zeitgeist and boldly support racial segregation, Black inferiority etc or lead street armies of White police/citizens to beat down Black thugs. Lots of our White people are just nice and soft on crime, racial issues, and most White American political leaders/candidates can’t stand up to be called “racists” – but that doesn’t mean they are not good White people in most White areas.

    I strongly urge Occidental Dissent readers to get to know some local White LDS folks and learn about the many organization activities these LDS people do so well – so nice to see happy, healthy young LDS couples with beautiful, large White families.

  11. Jack Ryan: Excellant article. The pre-1978 Mormons had it together. But now they follow the NWO Agenda like Southern Baptist. The Mormons are now Masons to. The Original Mormons had tremendous good things for our race. There is alot of good White Mormons just like there is good White Southern Baptist, its just that their leadership`is in the gutter of the NWO garbage. The Good Mormons need to break away and form their own White Mormon Church! And maybe use NEWS as their political party….

  12. the kenndy clan did indeed try to force us into being a catholic nation; its called the 1965 immigration act and it’s saved the catholic church in my AO. they were shutting down churches until the invaders from mexico showed up

    JR responds:

    Ridiculous nonsense. Our successful efforts to shut down mass immigration in the 1920s was designed to protect American White European population – also, yes to keep the US as a Northern European, British White population and especially keep out communists, anarchists – the worst Jews. Read Kevin Macdonald on the politics of immigration control who was/is for our against immigration restrictions – Irish Catholics are not main bad guys here – it’s “the Jews Stupid”:

    Most White Americans of Irish ancestry are no longer ardent Catholics. It’s time Whites in America ended all of these foolish church divisions White vs White hatreds like Irish Catholics hating British Protestants. Southern Whites blaming all Whites from Northern States for the Civil War and Reconstruction – a high percentage of Whites in Midwestern states immigrated to the United States after Reconstruction – so why hate on White Lithuanians from metro Chicago who’s grandparents came to the US fleeing Communism after World War II – these healthy, good looking White Lithuanians from the suburbs of Chicago or Indiana are hardly “Damn Yankees” and have never taken Black N(*#&$@! side against Southern Whites or any Whites.
    And please folks, try to work to get Evangelical Protestants, Southern Baptists to stop hating on perfectly nice White Latter Day Saints.

    “Kindness” mean being kind to our own White kind.

    What’s the alternative? To suffer the genocide fate of Whites in Algeria, Kenya, Rhodesia, Santo Domingo/Haiti, Angola, Detroit, St. Louis, Gary Indiana etc

  14. Well I will just say that it has become painfully clear to me that Romney is going to be the next president. He’s actually using a quite effective and simple strategy, too — “just shut up and look good while the other idiots put their feet in their mouths”.

    I’m not voting for Romney, despite our being born in the same city. I will vote for Obama because his agenda — the destruction of America — is on the same wavelength as mine. This country has become irredeemably wretched and untolerable to anyone with even a remote sense of right & wrong… So necessity makes for strange bedfellows, I suppose. But Romney will end up winning (the EC and PV) because once white people, even the outwardly liberal ones, get in the privacy of the voting booth, they’ll break white again. White people will do this because white people would rather have the superficial reassurance and permission to disengage that white tyranny provides, than the galvanizing clarity and personal responsibility that black tyranny demands from their conscience. Romney wins in 2012 and white America goes back to sleep…

  15. I guess we can thank George Romney for the Michigan state income tax, so now we have the “Department of Human Services” so all those ‘more-capable Negroes’ don’t have to work and can just sit around and collect monthly payments from the ‘less-capable’ Whites.
