Looking back on the 2022 midterms, I am amazed by own coverage.
1. On the one hand, I am pro-White and really do want White people to succeed and get their act together everywhere. I was hoping that states like Oregon and Nevada were “going red.” I defined a spectacular night as Tiffany Smiley winning in Washington. This also genuinely appeared to be happening in the polls. For most of the year, it seemed like there was going to be a big backlash on the West Coast against the crime, homelessness, inflation, insane gas prices, cultural insanity and so forth that we associate with the region. Portland, Seattle and San Francisco are synonymous with this West Coast model.
2. On the other hand, I have spent months arguing with various people in the comments about White Nationalism. I have insisted on stressing the importance of cultural differences between Whites. A major reason why I dropped the label is because it struck me as hopelessly naive. White people in different parts of the country have opposite views on race and most cultural issues. Trying to build a White ethnostate with millions of White libtards is doomed to failure because they are so dead set against it. These people won’t even vote for milquetoast conservatives in New England or on the West Coast.
Oregon is a very White state on paper. Portland is one of the whitest metros in the country. Harold Covington wrote novels urging White people in other parts of the country to move there. I was the villain in one of his novels. I was the little voice in his head reminding him that he was surrounded by White libtards who had other ideas. That’s why he kept pleading with us to “Come home, White man.” The relative whiteness of the Pacific Northwest is complicated by the reality of its cultural geography.
At some level, I always knew better, but I didn’t want to be too cynical. I try to remain hopeful. I want to be surprised in a good way. We have enough demoralizers. There is a reason why they prefer to live like this though. They are true to their own values. They just don’t have the same culture or values that we do. They make choices which are incomprehensible to us. Those values might come under stress from things like inflation, gas prices, crime and homelessness and other negative consequences of their progressive worldview, but at the end of the day it is their values that matter more than reality.
After everything we saw with COVID and the George Floyd riots, Oregon wants to live under anarcho-tyranny. Measure 114 passed by two points which requires a permit to purchase a firearm and bans magazines which hold more than two rounds of ammunition. Can you imagine something like that passing in a Southern state? Can you imagine someone like Tina Kotek getting elected here?
In fairness, it obviously isn’t everyone in Oregon and Washington who wants to live this way. It is the White libtards who live near the coast in Seattle and Portland and college towns. In fact, most of the sane people in eastern Oregon have already voted to secede from Oregon and join Idaho. Even if it goes nowhere, I will continue to pull for those who want to escape from the dystopia that is Oregon.
