Independence Day Is Ours

I was just thinking this morning …

There were no women who signed the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. It would have been scandalous at the time. It was White men who fought and died in the American Revolution.

There were no BIPOC people who signed the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. It was only White men. Most fought for the British. Article One of the Constitution refers to “Indians, Not Taxed.” The Declaration of Independence indicts King George III for inciting the “inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages.” Blacks were covered in the Constitution by the Fugitive Slave Clause and 3/5ths Compromise. Blacks and Indians gained American citizenship in 1866 and 1924 respectively.

There were no “trans” people or LGBTQ people who signed the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. The United States was created by cishet White males.

The Founding Fathers created a White Republic in the Constitution that shaped who could become an American citizen until the 1950s. American citizenship was based on whiteness.

The United States was created by “white supremacists” who were engaged in a project of “settler colonialism” on behalf of the British Empire. The American colonists wanted to remain White and English and incorporated that ideal into federal and state law. The Proclamation of 1763, which would have restricted White settlement to the Atlantic seaboard, was a cause of the conflict.

It wasn’t just White people who created America and who fought and died in the American Revolution. It was overwhelmingly Anglo-Americans or Americans of British ancestry. It was our ancestors who created America’s institutions in our own image. European immigrants were invited to come here and become Americans which meant becoming like us and adopting our customs.

America thought of itself as an “Anglo-Saxon” and “Protestant” nation until the 1930s.

America’s national identity – White (in race), Anglo-Saxon (in culture), Protestant (in religion) and liberal republican (in principles) was our identity. This was the dominant view down until World War II.

The American Idea, which was radical at the time, was the notion that White men could govern themselves in sovereign communities which we called our states. The Union was a federal republic of states.

The American love of “liberty” and individual rights and constitutional government is English in origin.

The Founding Fathers thought of themselves as republicans, not liberals, which became fashionable later in the early 19th century. The historian George Bancroft created America’s liberal national identity.

The federal government that was created by Americans during the American Revolution was a league of sovereign states. The Tenth Amendment reserved the vast majority of powers to the states.

It was the Lincoln administration which reversed the relationship between the states and the federal government. Prior to the War Between the States, the federal government was tiny and the states tended to their own affairs. It was Lincoln, not the Founders, who created a consolidated despotism.

The unalienable rights proclaimed by the Declaration of Independence are “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The only “equality” mentioned by the Constitution is the equality of sovereign states in the Senate. The federal government did not maintain “equality” within states.

The system created by the Founding Fathers was a White Republic composed of sovereign states where White men ruled themselves and over their families and slaves. The American Idea was putting a republican frame of government on an English culture.

In the 21st century, woke progressives have completely rejected America’s traditional national identity. They have rejected White identity, Anglo-Saxon culture, Protestant Christianity and now even liberal republicanism. And yet, these people whose beliefs are foreign in origin call us “extremists.”

Finally, if you were to search America for the group whose genetics, culture, values, memory and belief system most closely resemble that of the Founders, it would undoubtedly be us. “White Nationalism” is an American idea that grew out of the Anglo-American historical experience in North America. The idea that White men can and should govern themselves and that the government should be chained down by a constitution and kept at bay is a uniquely American idea. We are essentially antique Americans.

The people who go around toppling monuments of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and who are ashamed of their heritage and who believe their country is illegitimate and who hate themselves for being White are the people who have imbibed strange, foreign ideas. We have remained the same.

Regardless of how you feel about America, it was unquestionably our creation. There wasn’t another place in the world like it when we created it at the time.

  1. Declaration of Independence was a list of conspiracy theories about shadowy financial elites keeping down the white man by using the Redman and the Black as a battering ram.

  2. And the Grandmaster of Paul Revere’s Lodge was Moses Michael Hayes.

    Nothing about Protestantism or being English in the American Constitution.

    And without the French?

    • The declaration is a very interesting document. Blacks become Domestic Insurrectionists and Indians become Savages set on the people by the King. It’s so very fresh in so many ways but also trades in euphemisms. Even back then you couldn’t say that financial elites use darkies as a weapon on whitey, and in this was it strictly true that the King was all that bad to Liberal ears? He sounds awkwardly like Biden.

    • That is Hays, son of Judah, Spanish or Portuguese Sephardic, come to Boston via Holland and New Amsterdam, who married into the Myers silversmith family, hence the connection to silversmith Revere of Boston.

      These Founding Fathers and “heroes” of the “Revolution” are deified in the U.S. civil religion, but in reality the “revolution” was a bourgeois and upper class struggle to lower taxes and create better conditions for business/wealth accumulation. The one good result was the defeat of monarchy.

  3. To the Americans on your day. The following song gives my respect to the soldiers who fight, kill, and die for their country regardless of the cause. No politics here but only respect.

        • When the communist army entered and filled Saigon, there was not even one incident of rape, theft or brutality, although the city lay prostrate and there were endless opportunities.

          • …but when the capitalist army left Bagram Air Base on Friday, they fled like thieves in the middle of the night, cutting off the power to hide their escape in the dark. Hundreds of looters then flooded the base, scooping up equipment and supplies left by the fleeing Americans and their NATO puppet allies.

            The hired mercenary forces of the “Afghan” puppet regime are also fleeing, or surrendering or switching sides in droves. About every half hour another regime-held district falls to the Taliban. But don’t be fooled, the U.S. is NOT leaving Afghanistan, just changing tactics.

      • @Dart – However mistakenly, they believed in SOMETHING… which is more than can be said for you MINOs. (Men In Name Only)

        • What do American soldiers believe in? They’re usually mercenaries who join for a paycheck. American soldiers are worthless trash. Always have been.

      • Old Enough to Be Your Mother,

        You are welcome. I had no idea so many Americans hate the USA so badly. Or is it just this website ? My comment and song was not political and did not have anything to do with the Vietnam War. I chose it because it sounded good and I liked it. It was to honor the efforts of American soldiers throughout history.

        We all know soldiers being men will commit atrocities for good causes, bad causes or no causes because everyone sins. I had no idea that some on this website would become unglued over my comment. I was merely giving some respect to the country that my family derives a large portion of our total wealth from and that I have had relatives fight for.

        While most of my relatives are south of the border I have some north of the border and who were born US citizens.

        • Re: “to honor the efforts of American soldiers throughout history”:

          The U.S. has been continuously at war, except a few years, throughout its history, and for many of those years was at war with Latin American countries including Mexico that didn’t shrink to half its original area voluntarily. Being a multi-national however you may appreciate the efforts of the military to expand the Empire depending on which side of the border you are and idenftify with.

          “the song was not political and did not have anything to do with the Vietnam War”:

          It did. It was a very popular song, connected with a Hollywood movie that revved up support for the Vietnam War.

          “I had no idea so many Americans hate the USA so badly. Or is it just this website?”

          Most DON’T hate it, including recent immigrants of all races who enthusaistically accept the individualistic, selfish get-rich “ethic” that defines the global “nation.”

          • comrade anonymous,

            My choosing the song was not on my part political. I am quite aware of the lyrics which are obviously referring to the East and the Vietnam War.

            To me it represents honoring US soldiers. Soldiers are treated respectfully in the New Testament by Jesus. I did not choose something like the Star Spangled Banner since it to me reflects the US politically. I am quite aware that without war the United States would not even exist.

            I obviously am not thrilled by say Davy Crockett, Travis, Bowie etc. but I still give the respect for their efforts and courage as did Santa Anna after the taking of the Alamo. Just one example.

            I can and do respect men as a profession who risk it all. While I wish certain war results in the 19th century had been different I still stand by my decision to honor soldiers, in this case American ones.

          • anonymous,

            As an aside one of my grandmothers was born a US citizen. In the late 1940’s the school she was attending thought it would be a good idea to bus the high school students to the Alamo for a field trip. The majority of the school was Mexican-American and they all refused to go and their parents strongly supported and encouraged their decision.

            Busing them to the Alamo would be rubbing their faces in it. My grandmother loves the USA rather others do or not but she is still Mexican and loyal to our blood and heritage.

          • anonymous,

            I forgot to write that I only started my semi-active status on here writing frequent comments when there was an article on here supporting the Texas rebels of 1836 etc. Until then I had no intention to regularly comment. So I swung into action supporting the Mexican side. At one time I was debating 7 white nationalists at the same time.

            To their credit all but one was polite. There are several subjects that I no longer can be baited into arguing/debating to any degree as a general rule. One is religion and the Alamo/Mexican-American War is another. It is a waste of time and leads nowhere.

  4. The problem with giving “wasps” the position of honor as “the Real Americans” doesn’t reflect the American population as a whole. The problem is that they’re the ones (at least the ones who ruled it, won the Civil War, etc) who already gave this country away. Give it back to them and you’ll be back to square one, or worse. The “Anglo-Saxon” thing goes hand-in-hand with WWI and WWII jingoism. Which is why the Jews on these boards go on and on about “Ellis Island Americans” (as though the whole immigrant population came through New York or lived in the area)

  5. Wait until our buddy, Lin-Manuel, produces his next musical, “Founding Fathers, Yo” – you’ll be dazzled by the diversity we never knew about!

    • The Nice Slave Drivers of Richmond, a redemption arc. Staring Idris Elba as Jefferson.

    • They were already here, but what “you” (i.e. the rulers at the time, unlikely to have any relation to YOU) did was de-Christianize the federal government and open immigration to whites.

    • Catholic vs. Protestant conflict did not exist in America outside Puritan New England (where Anglican vicars got lynched on suspicions of being the pope) ’til Jews stoked divisions. Today Jews are known as pro-immigrant, but ’twas different story when immigrants were White. In mid-20th century Jews led (((Know-Nothing))) “nativist” party against Catholics. The first Jewish Congressman and the first Know-Nothing Congressman are the same person: Lewis C. Levin of Philadelphia.

      Jew Lewis Levin got elected from “Know-Nothing” Party in 1844 by inciting Protestant mob riots to burn down Catholic churches, Sisters of Charity convent, and get dozens of German and Irish Catholics lynched on streets of Philadelphia. Jews rubbed palms with glee using high Ashkenazi verbal IQ to give speeches to rile up Scots-Irish Protestants and Catholic Irish to attack each other with Old World hatreds, despite long history of Pennsylvania tolerance: Catholics, Quakers, Anglicans living in peace since colonial times.

      The nation’s fifth U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney—whose statue is being removed by Congress—appointed in 1835 by President Andrew Jackson serving ’til death in 1864, was Catholic. Andy Jackson did not share belief of sophisticated New England “WASP”s that Taney would take orders from the pope in court rulings, as is taught by court historians today… (also Roger Taney is quite an Anglo-Norman name…) There is no evidence any pope attempted to influence any ruling, nor that Taney sought papal orders on how to decide a case (like 1857 “worst ruling of all time” in Dred Scott determining correctly Framers of Constitution did not mean to include blacks as citizens)…

      Jefferson Davis an Episcopalian as a boy attended Roman Catholic St. Thomas College in Kentucky; of which he had fond memories: in Union jail in Sept 1865 his spirits lifted when Mrs. Davis (Varina) informed Jeff she sent the Davis children to a Catholic boarding school in Canada. Pope Pius IX sent sympathetic letters to Jeff Davis and Robert E. Lee; Catholic convert Mary Surratt and son John Surratt ran boarding house in Washington—meeting place of alleged Confederate Secret Service agents John Wilkes Booth, Lewis Powell, other conspirators behind assassination of Lincoln—all pieced together to fuel paranoid Puritan Yankee Republican conspiracy theory that Confederacy and assassination were all part of popish plot, leading to 1867 breaking relations with Rome that had existed since 1797.

      Sectarian conflict among Christians was a creation of Jewry—serving obvious divide-and-conquer distraction purposes—before Jews had a chance to import racial “diversity”.

      Did Russell Kirk cease to be a true white heritage American by converting to Catholicism (as was common among conservatives in Anglo-American society on both sides of the pond in 19th-20th centuries)…? Would Joseph Sobran, William F. Buckley, G.K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, J.R.R. Tolkien, or Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg for that matter, really be considered “diversity” in America due to Catholic religion…?

      (Also there’s no such religion as “Protestant Christianity”, there’s 5 billion denominations and counting…One could say America embraced small-p protestant individualist rejection of thousands of years of established tradition—essentially leftist Jacobinism—behead all leaders, reject any/all hierarchies, topple all statues—but that mindset can and has led to secular forms of protestantism to prevail, entirely devoid of Christianity, among today’s moralistic White Leftists who graduate Ivy League universities once founded to train ‘Protestant’ ministers…)

        • @Dart, Yeah, those of us whose ancestors were here prior to the arrival of the Catholics and the Jews have a different view of things. For all practical purposes there were very few Catholics in the US prior to the 1850’s, and even fewer Jews prior to the 1890’s.

          How did we manage to establish a Constitutional Republic without them?

      • “Sectarian conflict among Christians was a creation of Jewry—serving obvious divide-and-conquer distraction purposes—before Jews had a chance to import racial diversity”:

        What say you, that others say heretical Papism/Romanism might have been a Jewish or Jewish-inspired creation designed to divide, subvert and rule Christians?

        I suppose you would say the Orthodox separation from heretical Romanism was also a Jewish divide and rule tactic

        “Catholic vs. Protestant conflict did not exist in America outside Puritan New England”:

        It did. You have been reading Jesuit historians or making this up.

        “The first Jewish Congressman and the first Know-Nothing Congressman are the same person: Lewis C. Levin of Philadelphia”:

        He was not the first of Jewish descent to be elected; he was a Methodist minister not openly Jewish; and he was not elected to the U.S. congress as you seem to imply. The first one was elected by the South, an openly Jewish candidate, David Levy Yulee. The South elected the first Jewish candidates to Congress and other high offices, and the de facto President of the CSA was Judah Benjamin. Furthermore, Pastor Levin was not from Philadelphia; he came carpet-bagging from Charleston, South Carolina, which was the main center of Judaism in the U.S. from colonial times until after the war when New York became “New Jerusalem.”

  6. None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who believe they are free.- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832)

  7. The most important thing in the US Constitution is that was addressed by White men ‘to Ourselves and our Posterity’, in a time when slavery was legal, Whites were fighting Indians for land, and race mixing (White mixing) was illegal. Posterity means all of your descendents. So that means they said their new country was to be for themselves, their White children, their children’s White grand children, and so into infinity.

    Imagine if White men today founded a country, and dedicated it ‘to Ourselves and Our Posterity’. The current usurpers of the United States would call them nasty names, before nuking them into the stone age! Progressives hate the Constitution for good reason. They hate it, because unlike resepectable conservatives, they have read it, and understand what it means.

    • Exactly. America is a large group of heavily armed white men farming, making, mining. The left knows that.

  8. The Yankees, Scalawags, Blacks, etc have Juneteenth — 6/19/1866.

    Pro-Confederate (mostly White) Southerners have 7/4/1776 and 4/12/1861.

    The Yankees, Scalawags, Blacks, etc are against slavery so much that they can no longer have anything to do with colonial America and the original USA. They will not protect/defend anything before their “true” government, the Yankee Empire, came into power.

    Remember, 41 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were slave owners and only 15 were not.

    Slavery is NOT a sin. The South knew this because some of them actually read the Bible and believed God. Their first President (so far), Jefferson Davis, knew slavery was not a sin.

    Why, then, in the absence of all control over the subject of African slavery, are you agitated in relation to it? With Pharisaical pretension it is sometimes said it is a moral obligation to agitate, and I suppose they are going through a sort of vicarious repentance for other men’s sins… Who gave them a right to decide that it is a sin? By what standard do they measure it? Not the Constitution; the Constitution recognizes the property in many forms, and imposes obligations in connection with that recognition. Not the Bible; that justifies it. Not the good of society; for if they go where it exists, they find that society recognizes it as good…
    –Jefferson Davis, speech in Boston, 10-11-1858.

    “Let the gentleman go to Revelation to learn the decree of God – let him go to the Bible. … I said that slavery was sanctioned in the Bible, authorized, regulated, and recognized from Genesis to Revelation. … Slavery existed then in the earliest ages, and among the chosen people of God; and in Revelation we are told that it shall exist till the end of time shall come. You find it in the Old and New Testaments – in the prophecies, psalms, and the epistles of Paul; you find it recognized – sanctioned everywhere.”
    –Jefferson Davis

    Don’t condemn the South over slavery because the South was Right! And those who are not ashamed of the South’s stand will win in the end. When Christ returns He will allow regathered Israel to take and possess servants (slaves) once again. Read verse two.

    Isaiah 14:1-3
    1 For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.
    2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL SHALL POSSESS THEM IN THE LAND OF THE LORD FOR SERVANTS AND HANDMAIDS: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
    3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve…

    In addition, who has more right to the name America? The Yankee Empire promoting Yankees, Scalawags, Blacks, etc or Pro-Confederate slavery-allowing Southerners?

    ” …and we thereon made sail for Spain with 222 captive slaves: and reached the port of Calis (Cadiz) on the 15th day of October, 1498, where we were well received and sold our slaves. Such is what befell me, most noteworthy, in this my first voyage.” — Amerigo Vespucci

    So two whole continents and the USA and the CSA are/were named after a slaver — a man who captured natives on his first voyage and sold them as slaves in Europe.

    So get lost all you fake “Americans” and take your fake Juneteenth with you!

    And let the fireworks begin!

    May God Save the South!

    • “When Christ returns He will allow regathered Israel to take and possess servants (slaves) once again”:

      Do you predict Slavery in heaven, or do you mean just during a thosand-year, Millennial Kingdom? Those are absurd beliefs.

      The New Testament and even the Old, to some extent, contain principles that are antithetical to not only chattel slavery but any kind of exploitation of fellow human beings. Read the Bible with sanctified common sense.

      • No, you show all the Scriptures prohibiting slavery or promoting abolition, you liar!

  9. A huge problem is that most Whites under 30 don’t even know what is lost. They don’t understand what it was like not that long ago to not see many non-White faces in person or in advertisements or the media. They don’t know what it was like to be relaxed and free in public and private.They don’t know what it is like to reely acknowledge the stupidity of most minorities, and not to step aside for them or prop them up. They are constantly told that they are in charge, and on the way out, but they don’t know what it means to be at the top of the pile. They don’t know what it means to travel around the country and see mostly variations of Whiteness. They don’t know what it is to take the celebration of their people, culture, and history as a given.They don’t know what has been lost in just a few decades, and telling them just doesn’t do justice.

    At this point, they don’t know what it us to celebrate Easter and Christmas as national holidays, or to celebrate Thanksgiving as a happy event. There are no holidays for the White men who founded the nation, or for Whites, let alone for regional heroes and cultures. The Fourth of July is now celebrated with the Black National Anthem, just weeks after the made-up holiday of Juneteenth, which comes after MLK day and a whole month of celebrating bogus black history and achievements. What’s left? Halloween? That’s just an excuse for adults to act like children, pretend to be occultists, or to lose their inhibitions, and its true roots will probably be negated as appropriating voodoo or Day of the Dead celebrations from Mexican immigrants. Neither claim would make sense, but they wouldn’t have to.

    That’s what the under 30s are left with, so I don’t see much pushback happening until ZOG grossly oveyplays its hand, which will eventually happen, but will future generations of Whites even know what they are fighting for, except on the most basic level? If they win, will they even know how to build something resembling what we care about?

  10. ..that they are endowed by the creator with certain unalienable rights among these being life, liberty and property (changed by the commitee to persuit of happiness) In reality God did not endow man with unalienable rights. Man is sinner doomed to die without salvation unless he repents. The concept of a noble being with God-given right present at birth is not Bibical. Nevertheless give me the DOI anyday over the Constitution because the DOI enshries the concept of universal sovereignity for all humanity whereas the Constition is what is causing our dispossession since only the Supreme Court, and not the states, gets to decide what is and what is not constitutional. As a result Intergration is Constitutional, Gay Marriage is Constitutional, Transgendered bathrooms are Constitutional, Interracial marriages are Constitutional…
