I don’t regret a single thing I ever personally did as an activist.
Every single event that I ever attended as a White Nationalist, a Southern Nationalist activist or an Alt-Right activist – I get tired of labels – was motivated by my sense of right and wrong. The vast majority of people who attended those events were good and solid people who felt the same way.
This is also true of Charlottesville. I went to the Unite the Right rally because I loved the statues and had always supported Confederate monuments. I believe it is the right thing to do to honor your ancestors. I could have sworn that I read that somewhere. I believed that Charlottesville was allowing anti-Whites to bully Jason Kessler and that his constitutional rights were being violated. I believe that we had the right to assemble in public to express our grievances. I still believe all of this.
The best people that I have ever known have been involved in “the movement.” Some of the worst people I have ever known too. There is also a difference between doing the right thing and doing the wise thing. It was right to go to Charlottesville to support the statues. It was unwise to hold the event in Lee Park in Charlottesville because of the corrupt local government and because of the bad actors who were there to cause mayhem and those who were there on our own side with bad intentions.
Looking back on my years as an activist, I always did the right thing, but not always the wise thing:
- I supported our historic monuments
- I opposed the Great Replacement
- I supported secession
- I supported free speech
- I opposed refugee resettlement
- I supported states’ rights
- I opposed job destroying globalist trade agreements
- I opposed gay marriage
- I opposed black-on-White hate crimes
- I opposed opioid and drug abuse
- I opposed communists and Antifa
- I opposed our enemies like the SPLC
This is my moral compass on display. I do what I think is just.
In retrospect, the remarkable thing about my activism is how mainstream it always was in those areas. Most people in Virginia were opposed to tearing down the Confederate monuments even after Charlottesville. Most people in Tennessee were opposed to the federal government dumping refugees into their area. Most people in Arkansas are still opposed to gay marriage.
In Shelbyville, we had went there because a Sudanese refugee had gunned down a bunch of White people who were worshipping in a church. It was a straight up black-on-White hate crime. The media buried the story. It was the right thing to do to be outraged and publicly oppose something like that. The event was also completely overshadowed by the internal culture of the movement. The message and reason for being there got lost in the sense that the Nazis from Charlottesville are in town to stir up trouble.
Here are some Christian Nationalist activist events that I have done over the years. I’m still proud of the fact that I protested gay marriage in Richmond in 2014.
We protested the SPLC over its support for gay marriage in 2014:
We protested gay marriage in Little Rock in Arkansas in 2014.
I remember that little rally because my son was three months old at the time. I look back at these events and I am filled with nothing but pride over my actions. Those events have aged well.
My beliefs and values haven’t moved an inch.
By far, the event that I look back on which feels me with the most pride was the last one that I attended in late 2018. Hurricane Michael had devastated Panama City, FL. I went down to Panama City with some League members and participated in the relief effort. Panama City was the textbook example of what we should have been doing all along instead of getting mixed up with the Alt-Right.
In Panama City, we just did the right thing. We helped out a distressed Southern community in the wake of an emergency. We were motivated by nothing but love of our neighbors, love of our own people, love of our fellow League members. We spent much of the day helping one of our own members recover from the storm damage. It wasn’t just a Christian effort either. I went down there with a pagan friend who was in the League. We stayed with a League member who is Christian Identity. It showed to me the promise of what could be done when Christian morality and love of your own people are aligned.
If people were doing that instead of arguing on the internet (focusing on what you have in common and how to reach and connect with outsiders), there is no telling where we would be today. Instead, we have people who loudly insist that you can’t be pro-White and a Christian even though most people who are pro-White and who oppose the Great Replacement are overwhelmingly Christians. Loving your neighbors isn’t a bad thing. It makes our people social and agreeable and inclined to help one another instead of preying on and turning on each other in emergency situations like when a hurricane strikes.
It is dumb to insist that White identity and Christianity are incompatible. It makes no sense to insist to the vast majority of people who are rightwing and sympathetic to nationalism that their moral beliefs are fundamentally incompatible with your cause. It is political retardation. I was resting at home after coming back from Panama City when I was once again rudely reminded of this type of retardation that is like a coiled strand of DNA that runs through the White Nationalist movement.
We will get to that tomorrow.
