Greg Palino responded to my recent “American Restorationist Fashion ” article at Counter-Currents with a frank admission of anti-American sentiment . . .
I guess I am an “American traitor” because I most definitely “cast a jaundiced eye on American heritage and culture altogether.” I am with Yockey in believing America is a European bastard who stabbed our father/motherland in the back (albeit under liberal-judaic influence). Our founding fathers were (classically) liberal nutcases who caused revolutions around the world, and a nation that exports it’s degeneracy throughout the world. There is a direct link from what they proposed then to what we have now. It was destined from it’s inception to create something like what we have today. The fact of the matter is, they believed too much in the lemming, they were smart but had no concept of wisdom. They spread poisonous ideas amongst the masses and rejected what was left of the already declining positive traditions of Europe. The only part America that was ever worth anything was the Aristocratic South (Georgia and South Carolina mostly), and even they were only half worth anything.
I’m sorry, but our hope lies in greater Europe, not America. We are more likely to meet with success in South America than the United States, and that’s a serious statement.
There’s more than a little truth in his narrative, and I suspect that it summarizes the most popular narrative among European New Right intellectuals and adherents. Before Dr. Johnson goes through all this trouble of attempting to build up an American New Right, we should probably figure out whether America and the New Right are even compatible.
America’s founding fathers were explicitly hostile to both Europe’s nobility and its priesthood, even to the point of explicitly forbidding titles of nobility and imposing a “separation between church and state.” According to their worldview, which is the worldview more or less retained by a large but atrophying subset of White Americans, the American experiment constituted a clean break from both martial tyranny and managerial “popery.” It was definitely a clean break from Medieval Europe’s Ancien Régime.
But was this a clean break from Europe and Tradition, altogether?
In Medieval Europe, power was shared by a martial nobility that ruled by force and a Catholic priesthood that ruled by influence. In some ways, the aristocratic and Catholic traditions are European tradition. Yet, these two elites can’t seriously purport to have a monopoly on being “European.” For one, Catholicism’s origins aren’t even primarily European, and Europe’s aristocracy was so thoroughly interwoven with Christian tradition that its pagan origins are barely recognizable.
The indigenous elites were caught flatfooted when economic exchange became the primary source of power. Hence the rise of the bourgeoisie, peasants, and the Jewish merchants. While both Freemasonry and Jews collaborated in toppling the Ancien Régime, and while Jews has had considerable influence on the Masonic elite, it’s incorrect to conflate them as “Judeo-Masonic” and dismiss them altogether as anti-Traditional and anti-European.
I am with Yockey in believing America is a European bastard who stabbed our father/motherland in the back (albeit under liberal-judaic influence).
America didn’t stab Europe’s elites in the back. It threw them off its back. This is just as well, given that those elites had abandoned their functions and become humiliating parodies of their original forms well before the American nation was envisioned. Prince Charles, heir of the nobility America defied, now wanders about aimlessly, talking to trees and spying on his house guests. The Catholic priesthood has become infiltrated by pedophiles, is syncretizing the faith with every form of witchcraft in primitive villages ’round the world, and fears Abe Foxman more than it fears God.
Our founding fathers were (classically) liberal nutcases who caused revolutions around the world, and a nation that exports it’s degeneracy throughout the world. There is a direct link from what they proposed then to what we have now. It was destined from it’s inception to create something like what we have today.
It was only destined from its inception to create what we have today because it did not recognize and react to the threat of Jewish influence. Those loyal to Europe’s non-mercantile elites may well wish that they weren’t rendered obsolete by the rise of capitalism. However, that’s independent of the much more serious problem of a hostile invasive elite commandeering our civilization and driving it off a cliff. The Masonic, Protestant, and Republican influences at the heart of American Tradition are thoroughly European and arguably Traditional.
The fact of the matter is, they believed too much in the lemming, they were smart but had no concept of wisdom. They spread poisonous ideas amongst the masses and rejected what was left of the already declining positive traditions of Europe.
Our founding fathers were deeply suspicious of the lemmings, attempting to carefully integrate a limited democratic check against numerous anti-democratic balances. All institutions can be perverted into parodies of themselves by Jewry if those safeguarding the institutions aren’t vigilant. The well-constructed government they designed has been distorted into one that is directed by a hostile invasive elite from at the top who control an ignorant (increasingly invasive) mass at the bottom. Our founders envisioned a nation under the thoughtful stewardship of classically educated landed country gentlemen of European descent, not this nightmare.
