RADIX LIVE returns this Sunday (4/25) — 1 PM ET— Richard ? Spencer (@RichardBSpencer) April 25, 2021
Mark Brahmin joins me to discuss the future of Christianity. Fewer than half of America adults belong to a church—but is God dead . . . or rising in new forms? https://t.co/JcKYHZZWaU
Mark Brahmin and I discuss Christianity’s institutional collapse—and possible return. https://t.co/TcRaxdpcq9— Richard ? Spencer (@RichardBSpencer) April 25, 2021
Petty nationalism is a stillborn project. It denies the broader racial family. It promises isolation, provincialism, impotence, irrelevance and an inevitable capitulation on the world stage. National organizations and parties should be organizing globally on a racial basis.— MarkBrahmin?? (@MarkBrahmin) January 3, 2021
Petty nationalism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.— MarkBrahmin?? (@MarkBrahmin) February 10, 2021
You say that but evidently we disagree. And I don't consider religion merely a "mode of identity." It is a means of survival and amelioration. The way Jews view it, actually. https://t.co/yp6m92kkTM— MarkBrahmin?? (@MarkBrahmin) April 25, 2021
I’ve noticed that this bizarre debate has been going on in post-Alt-Right circles lately.
Isn’t the big political and cultural divide in America between traditionalists and modernists or social conservatives and social liberals or Christians and atheists and agnostics? It seems to me that this is roughly the contours of the big divide. I’m on the same side as Christians, traditionalists, nationalists, social conservatives and other enemies of modernism. Isn’t the other side the Left?
If memory serves, atheism is more strongly associated with social liberalism and cultural degeneration than even Judaism, so it is weird seeing people saying that Christianity is leftwing. It is mostly White Christians who are propping up the Right in the United States. How do you reconcile voting for Joe Biden with the belief that it is Christians who are leftwing? Isn’t creating your own made up religious cult the ultimate example of expressive individualism? How is creating another religious cult an improvement over the Alt-Right? Wouldn’t that only significantly narrow its appeal and be politically self-marginalizing? What is wrong with the existing White Nationalist cults like Cosmotheism or Creativity?
There are Christians who are leftists, degenerates and antiracists. There are atheists who are rightwing traditionalists who oppose cultural degeneration. Generally though, Christianity is related to social conservatism and atheism is related to social liberalism. It just seems weird to me that we should be attacking people for being Christians who are also the people who are the most concerned about anti-whiteness. The typical American who values his racial identity is a White working class Christian from the South or Midwest. The typical American who is strongly antiracist is a college-educated atheist who lives in a coastal metropolitan area. Isn’t the former group friendlier and more persuadable than the latter?
The same people who believe White people are under attack believe that Christianity is under attack in America. The same people who are attacking White people are also trying to undermine Christianity. It makes no sense and is grossly counterproductive to try to pit White identity against Christianity.
