Michael Hill has taken a shot at answering a common question: why do you hate America?
Admittedly, it is an interesting question. How can someone whose ancestors have lived in North America since before the American Revolution possibly come to hate the United States?
How can the people whose ancestors actually fought in the American Revolution and who revere Thomas Jefferson want to secede from the Union?
This loaded question is exactly like asking a Russian why do you hate the Soviet Union or a Croat why do you hate Yugoslavia. The answer is because the Soviet Union wasn’t Russia or because Yugoslavia wasn’t Croatia. Similarly, what passes for America today isn’t the “Real America.”
A better question for a White Southerner to ask himself is why should you love Black Run Amerika? If you really think about it, the vast majority of White Southerners do not really love BRA and are only adapting to it. They can sense at a gut level that something has gone terribly wrong. The polls show they overwhelmingly believe that America is now in terminal decline under our first black president.
It all starts with the experience that can be described as “the horror”: the horror is a instinctive and existential sense of alienation that White Southerners experience while living under the mores and customs of BRA. The indigenous cultural DNA of the American South does not match the alien culture that is endlessly promoted by the mass media.
Have you ever experienced this gut feeling about America that “this can’t be right”? It is probably the source of your political views. You just know at an instinctive level that you are “losing your country” and that some kind of impostor has taken its place.
What is your country? What is your real culture? Do you know?
(1) Herrenvolk Democracy – In the Antebellum South, democracy meant that the White men of every state and community would make the important political decisions among themselves without consulting their dependents.
Dixie was a White Man’s Country. There was no such thing as an “African-American.” The term “African-American” was coined by Jesse Jackson in the 1980s. We use it here only as a joke. Women and children did not have the right to vote either. This was changed by the 14th Amendment, the 19th Amendment, and the 26th Amendment.
(2) Classical Republicanism – In the Antebellum South, liberty was set within the framework of classical republicanism, not modern liberalism. The slave states of Rome and Sparta were widely admired and were considered models worth emulating. As in Rome, the liberty of the White man was thought to rest upon religious piety, moral virtue, constitutional government, his sense of honor and dignity, and the slavery of the African negro.
(3) Racial Feudalism – In the Antebellum South, a system of racial feudalism had emerged that evolved into the economic foundation of Southern society. Southerners took great pride in slavery because it eliminated the need for a White working class and promoted racial equality within the White race by eroding class divisions.
As strange as this sounds to modern ears, there was once a time when African-Americans worked to support a White aristocracy in the American South. It was the exact opposite of the system we have today where White families work and limit the size of their families so that the federal government can tax them and redistribute their wealth to idle African-Americans who live off the TANF welfare check and the EBT card in Section 8 housing.
The great planters in the Antebellum South owned the majority of the slaves, but they were a small minority among the total number of slaveowners. The typical slaveowner was a White man who owned a slave family. Owning a few slaves was the Antebellum equivalent of being middle class.
(4) Equality – In the Antebellum South, the only equality that existed was the equality that existed among White men in the Herrenvolk democracy who enjoyed the same civic and political rights as other White men.
White Southerners did not believe in racial equality or social equality. Their entire social and economic system rested on the bedrock foundation that the African negro was racially inferior to the White man. God had created this inferior race. If black people were inferior, then God himself had made him that way and it wasn’t our fault.
In a caste based society, the ideal of the master race and the color line fostered a sense of egalitarianism among Whites who participated in the slave patrols. Every White man was considered better than every African-American. This social system also had the effect of elevating the White woman in Southern society as the vessel of chastity and racial purity.
(5) Liberty – As in Rome, White Southerners in the Antebellum South valued their citizenship and zealously defended their liberties. They enjoyed a type of liberty that is virtually unknown in BRA.
It was the liberty not to pay taxes to support a distant king and a distant aristocracy. It was liberty from a domineering central government. It was the liberty to be a yeoman farmer and to live off the land and have real control over your own destiny. It was the liberty to control your wife and other dependents.
Above all else, it was the liberty to own slaves and to be “liberated” from a life of labor and toil, which allowed a Southern White man – any Southern White man, as a hereditary aristocracy was just emerging at the time – to amass great wealth and rise the status of a gentleman and to participate in a genteel society.
(6) Conservatism – The Antebellum South was a world that was explicitly based on race, ethnicity, and religion. It was explicitly based on the cornerstone of racial inequality. It advertised itself to the world as the White Man’s Country.
(7) States’ Rights – In the Antebellum South, it was widely believed at the time that the states were sovereign, and that states had created the United States. Wasn’t this obvious? South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, and Maryland existed long before there was even a concept of a “United States.”
Before the 14th Amendment overthrew the Constitution of 1789, the Bill of Rights applied to the federal government, not the states. There was nothing stopping a state from establishing an official religion or a state from censoring the mail to rid itself of the nuisance of abolitionist propaganda.
The states would have never voluntarily joined the United States under the terms of BRA. The Tenth Amendment reserved to the states vast powers. Washington was only supposed to have been delegated a handful of powers. The Bill of Rights was designed to restrain the federal government, not the states.
(8) Aristocracy – Far from turning its back on its European heritage, the Antebellum South was a conservative world that looked back to Greece, to Rome, to Britain, and especially to the Middle Ages as models worth emulating.
Plantation slavery created enormous wealth for the planter class. The Southern gentry used that wealth to emulate the European aristocracies. They built Greek Revival mansions. They began to marry their blood relatives. They acted like Roman patricians. They adopted an honor code.
As we shall see next month in our review of Southern Honor: Ethics & Behavior in the Old South, that honor code which has now been lost to the vapors of history shaped Southern society from top to bottom:
“Honor is that principle of nature which teaches us to respect ourselves, in order that we may gain the respect of others. No man desires the respect of one class of Society exclusively and therefore the law of honor will influence our conduct toward persons of every quality.”
If the White Southerners of the nineteenth century could be resurrected to witness BRA, they would be horrified to the marrow of their bones at the disgrace that their descendants are now suffering under, and would wonder aloud why White men – especially freedom loving Anglo-Saxons – would consent to suffering the humiliation and dishonor of allowing themselves and their women and children to live under such a disgusting African despotism which has no precedent in world history.
They would be left speechless at the incredible notion that this society – Black Run Amerika, or BRA as it is called here – is somehow true to the ideals of Washington and Jefferson. If our ancestors were here with us today, they would also accused of hating America. Andrew Jackson’s Democratic Party would be labelled a “hate group.”
Is this what you call America? If so, then its makes sense to hate America, as this is a false America, not the real thing. It is the creation of Yankees and Jews. It took a war that we lost in which 1 out of every 4 White men of military age died to force this upside down world upon us.
How long will we continue to tolerate it?
