An Olive Branch to the Left

1,533 words

Despite deeply appreciating the victory of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, I didn’t experience the schadenfreude I thought I would. The part of my mind which harbors hatred for my enemies and usually roils at the anti-white antics of the Left felt oddly calm and steady. After weeks of slander, smears, and despicable behavior from those who wished to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation, it would seem natural for one on the Right to gloat and enjoy the hot tears of their vanquished foes. But I felt something else.

I felt sympathy.

Of course, I hate the Left. People on the Left have no honor. They say they’re against racism, yet they say and do the most racist things against white people. They promote diversity and multiculturalism, yet what they really want is the ultimate extinction of whites and the civilization they created. They say they’re against fascism, yet they support the cruelest, most totalitarian measures against people they don’t agree with. They say they support peace and love, yet show none of that towards people who honestly and civilly oppose them in the body politic. They prattle on about Nazism and slavery and the Holocaust, but ignore the genocide, forced labor, and war crimes committed by the Left (which were far greater than the sins committed by the Right). People on the Left are slaves to an impractical ideology which is based on racial and sexual egalitarian lies. You cannot agree to disagree with these people, because they will never agree to disagree with you.

The Left, essentially, has no moral center, and no standard code of ethics. This code of ethics is the very thing that holds great civilizations together: honest people adhering to one standard because they know that God, their nation, or their ancestors – or else some immutable, supernatural ideal – is always watching them (or they are always watching it). When you abandon fealty to something greater than humanity, then self-serving dishonesty becomes the norm, because all that remains is power. You grow to despise humanity because you believe that everyone else is as dishonest as you are. Then everything becomes a race to the bottom.

So, yes, the Left is complete rot and should be beaten back or destroyed whenever and wherever it lifts its ugly snout in decent, civilized society.

But as I watched Leftist activists suffering, screaming, and clawing at doors during and after the Kavanaugh confirmation, however, I realized two things. First, that could have been me. If Justice Clarence Thomas had died or retired during the Obama administration, then we would have had five Leftist judges on the Court instead of four. Although I wouldn’t have been as hysterical as the people protesting Kavanaugh, I certainly would have been just as devastated. Who wants to live in a society in which a majority of the governing elites stand against everything you stand for?

Secondly, I realized that I really don’t want to rule over the Left. Lefties have the right to live in a nation which is based on their values just as I have the right to live in a nation which is based on mine. With a country as polarized as the United States, a fifty-one percent majority will seem like tyranny to the other forty-nine. Is this really what we want? Is this what the Founding Fathers envisioned? We on the Right may be running victory laps now, but it could have easily gone the other way. Further, it could still go the other way, and likely will go the other way if immigration and reproductive patterns continue. Donald Trump may be slowing the white decline at the moment, but it is unlikely he will stop it. Sooner or later, American whites will be a minority in their own homeland, and then we’ll be the ones suffering, screaming, and clawing at doors. Either that, or we will be forced to wage another civil war to get our country back, and many will die.

So my question to the Left is: Is this what you want? Do you want to live in a world in which your rulers drive you to hysteria and grief? Do you actually like going to the capital and harassing Senators? Do you actually enjoy resorting to lies and smears in order to keep people on the Right from positions of power? It would seem that you don’t, otherwise you would have protested just as vigorously against Barack Obama for not being sufficiently Leftist in his policies. No, you save your protests for people on the Right. And this proves one thing: that you hate us as much as we hate you.

You see, mutual hatred is the one thing we have in common, and it is more powerful than many of us realize. It is this common thread I intend to pull in order to get you to consider my following proposal.

Let’s give up on the idea that the United States is one nation, indivisible. Since 1965, we have become more and more divided thanks to non-white immigration and the integration of blacks into mainstream society. The division was hardly noticeable at first, and it took a few generations to manifest. But now, we are more divided than we’ve been since the 1860s. Meanwhile, the forces behind this division continue apace. We are vulnerable right now to a great historical breakup which could rend our nation in two with great violence. It could take the form of an economic depression, a terrorist attack, another war, or a terrible natural disaster. But however it comes, the results will be horrific. Remember, we hate you as much as you hate us, and this will not change. Many of us on the Right are armed and prepared. We have the sympathy of the military; moreover, we are sick of you. It will be an ugly and painful separation.

Again, is this what you want? What fuels our mutual hatred is that we are forced to share a single country. This is an idea that most of us take for granted. But what if this is a bad idea? What if history has worn it out and made it bad? Wouldn’t you want to live in a nation in which you don’t have unutterable contempt for fifty percent of your countrymen? Wouldn’t you want to be certain that no threat exists to abortion, multiracialism, feminism, transgender rights, affirmative action, high taxes, gun control, socialism, and all the other things you hold dear? Wouldn’t you want to wake up every morning breathing a sigh of relief, knowing that you have trust in your government? Do you even remember how this feels?

As much as I hate you, I would prefer not to make you feel as bad as you did on the day Kavanaugh got confirmed. Because I hate you, I would prefer not to have you in my nation at all. This is a requited preference, I am sure.

So why don’t we do something about it? Let’s get past the idea of the United States being indivisible and see it for what is has become: irreparably divided. Let’s stop pretending and instead open our minds to a future in which there are two Americas. And in your America, we won’t tyrannize you, while in ours you won’t tyrannize us. Let’s take Calexit to the national level. Let’s be friends and enemies at the same time and work towards a shared goal, even if we approach that goal from opposite directions.

I’m sure all the details could be worked out. The price for such a separation would be that you would lose territory you probably wouldn’t want to visit, anyway. And the same goes for us. So where’s the downside? Some people will have to rent U-Haul trucks and move to their preferred nation. Some people will have to sell their homes or switch jobs. Some people will suffer as a result, no doubt. But compared to what we have now and where we are headed, is this really such a hardship? Penniless Mexicans risk danger and imprisonment every day when they enter our nation illegally. If they can do it, so can we – and so can you. Furthermore, there will be peace. White Nationalism as expressed here is a position of peace because it offers a viable solution to our current troubles and a way to stave off another civil war. No sane person wants war. No sane person fights for the sake of fighting. So let’s stop fighting. Let’s call the divorce attorneys and do this.

And if you don’t want to do this, if you actually prefer the strife and heartache of sharing your country with the Right – especially the white Right – then there is only one motivation I can think of for that: conquest. You really do want war. You aim one day to annihilate the Right and dispossess and oppress white people until there aren’t any of us around anymore. And if this is indeed the case – as I am afraid it is – then when the civil war comes, we will be perfectly justified in destroying you.

    The next civil war in America will be a race war. A race war against Whites.

    But it will not be a war with all non-whites on one side and all Whites on the other. No.

    It will not even be all non-Whites allied with political LEFT Whites versus Whites on the political Right. No.

    It will be all non-Whites allied with Whites on the political LEFT versus Whites on the Right who are racially aware and racially loyal. Other political Right Whites will sit it out, “on the fence” so to speak, waiting to see how the chips fall.

    If at any moment it looks like the political Right Whites are going to even start losing, the political Rights on the fence will come down and self righteously denounce the race aware/loyal Whites (doing the fighting) as bigots/raysis/haters etc. If, on the other hand, the non-Whites allied with LEFTIST Whites are losing the political Right Whites on the fence and wait until the last possible moment and then and only then come down off the fence; muttering “White power” and other homilies, as if they were there with us (race aware/loyal Whites) all along.

    And they will want to share political power in new America that is all White after such a race civil war. I say the hell with them. There will be two tiers in the new all White world; those who rule (fought for an all White society) and those who are simply worker bees (those who wouldn’t fight … much at all that is).

    I personally will not accept and recognize as citizens of the USA all these 3rd worlders (i.e. non-Whites) let in since the mid 1960s Hart Celler Act. So what if some gov’t puke gave them a piece of paper that said they were US citizens? So, the hell, what? That does not make them an “American”. Only Whites can be Americans. America was conceived, built and designed for Whites. No one else. If non-Whites were anywhere near as good as Whites, they would have made some time ago a reasonable facsimile of “America” back in those s*** holes they came from. Dumping them into White nations/lands will not reverse or cancel out millennia of social pathos, much of which is now ingrained in their non-White DNA via mental traits.

    Very interesting article, but I’m not sure if the left wants to separate from the rest of America. Many on the left seem to live for their hatred of white America. It’s what defines them and they don’t want to let go of it. Their loathing of traditional, founding stock America is the essence of their identity. Also, I don’t think any left-wing breakaway state would be viable. It’s the centuries-old institutions of the US that hold the country together (only just) and make life possible for the shrieking SJWs. How long would a country ruled by a coalition of Jews, feminists, blacks, mestizos, Muslims, LBGTQ freaks, etc. last? What’s more, leftists probably know the answer to that question deep down, although they dare not admit it. Their natural role seems to be to undermine their host country rather than build a new one for themselves. Of course the inevitable conclusion to that activity is the destruction of the host country and the necessity of building a new one on the ruins. But I don’t think they’ve really thought that out.

    One more thing…Those of you who think that the Left will never want a split and will never accept such an olive branch (rhetorical or otherwise), please consider this:

    The Left is unaccustomed to losing. In the post-Reagan world, they have been able to dictate to the Right what pieces they can keep on the board in the great chess match that is the culture war. To varying degrees, the Right has abided by the rulings of the Left and kept some of their most powerful pieces off the board. The Right may win elections from time to time because they have truth, luck, or numbers on their side, but they have been ultimately controlled by their enemies, which is why the Left is completely ascendant in our culture and our institutions, regardless if we have Republicans in office.

    Trump is the first Republican to put some of those pieces back on the board. He plays them, and he wins, despite the Left forbidding him to do so. He is the first Republican since Reagan to do this. Of course, he doesn’t play *all* the pieces he could play (we at C-C would like to see the Right play all its pieces and sweep the Left off the board), but still…this is a huge improvement over Bush/McCain/Romney etc.

    2016 was the Left’s first taste of real defeat. Since then, there have been other defeats big and small, with the Kavanaugh confirmation being one of the biggest. And with every defeat they grow more and more hysterical. It’s beginning to snowball, making the Left less and less attractive to ordinary voters. Their antics over Kavanaugh only improved GOP morale and accomplished the nigh-impossible feat of un-cucking Lindsay Graham, correct? If things keep going this way, if the Left keeps losing, they are going to grow more hysterical and less capable of being taken seriously.

    If they fail to take the House in 2018 and then are forced to watch the wall go up, Mueller go down, and the economy continue to surge, this will only get worse. If they lose again in 2020 and then 2024 like I am thinking could very well happen, I guarantee all of you, many of them on the grassroots level will be *begging* to leave. The Left 6 years hence–after 6 more years of excruciating defeat–will not be the Left we all know and hate today. All that needs to happen to accomplish this is for Trump to stay healthy and keep doing what he’s doing and for a Kris Kobach or someone like him to step up at the right time. Yes, I know I am being optimistic, but it could happen.

    Remember, the Left is not honorable. They are not good losers. Today’s Left lacks the (Bill) Clintonian sense to drift towards the center in order to survive politically. They are absolutists and they are crazy and know only one direction for progress: to the Left. And they would rather burn their bridges behind them than take a backwards step.

    Let’s hope they become so apoplectic with defeat that they actually do this. The we can finally have our schadenfreude, watching them march off leftward into oblivion.

    All,

    Thank you for the comments. This is exactly the kind of discussion we need to be having. Yes, I was being rhetorical. When I wrote “We have the sympathy of the military” I was referring to the Right in general (not the Dissident Right) and was basing this on various reports I have read over the years which state that the military tends to vote Republican, especially the brass. If I’m wrong about this, then I am wrong. But I wasn’t implying that the military is on the Dissident Right or is comprised of white nationalists. I know that’s not true, and I know Ash and John are correct about today’s military being a leftist institution. I suspect however that by the time the civil war happens the whites in the military will choose us over the blacks and browns who by that point will be more hostile to them than they are today (that hostility is growing daily).

    Yes, this is pure gut-level speculation. But, as you all recognized, the article was very much a rhetorical device, so I figured such a flourish would be in character with the piece.

    This is in my view a very misguided article. Many in this comment section have already pointed to the practical flaws, like the assumption that peace is what Marxists want, and that the army would support a far-right uprising wholesale, both of which are incredibly wrong. The idea of extending an olive branch to the left itself isn’t misguided, but the assumptions and reasoning are. Peace with the far left can only be made from a position of strength, and force, criminalizing its most radical element. Likewise can the right only be reconciled with individual leftists, not the leftist ideology, which remains steeped in contradiction and philosophical shortcomings. The only way to make peace with these people is to de-leftify them, separate them from Jewish ideology that tells them to hurt their own flags and blood. Expecting peace beyond that is foolish.

    So many commentators recognize the rhetorical setup but don’t seem to appreciate the aorta severing stab at the end. Bloody well done to be so well kept in, Sir Spence.

    p.s. it goes without saying that the left needs us more than we need them, it’s called parasitism…& we could have hosted a few Quakers as mere cooties providing an immune boost, but we’ve got the heebie jeebies. May god have mercy on their Solls.

    The (hysterical) Left would never allow the Right to have its own country. They see the Right as Absolute Evil, and who would allow Evil to have its own country ? That is like expecting fundamentalist Christians to allow Satan to have his own church. For them “to agree to disagree” with Evil is impossible. You cannot reason with people without reason.

    It’s trivial, but does anyone know the details behind the photo that that semi-famous meme at the head of the article is based on? I don’t care what that thing’s name is, just where, when, and what protest?

    I think we’re getting too far away from what was once white nationalism’s core issue: Our media is in the hands of enemies who want to destroy us.

    Many people — perhaps most — believe what their televisions tell them to believe. In the internet era, they also believe the fake truths that huge internet companies choose to push at them. Propaganda and managed news are effective in shaping opinion, so we shouldn’t be surprised that large segments of the white population, especially the most gullible, are influenced by what they see and read. It is disturbing, but not surprising.

    The leftists protesting in Washington and elsewhere, most of them white women, believe that Brett Kavanaugh is a serial rapist. He rapes women in boats; he drugs women and participates in train-rapes. The reported cases of his sexual assaults are just the tip of the iceberg. If the Republicans had not prevented the FBI from conducting a proper investigation, more of Kavanaugh’s many victims would have been uncovered. Kavanaugh has been attacking women since high-school, and his conservative judicial philosophy is an expression of the same misogyny that made him a serial rapist. Now he will be able to assault women from the Supreme Court, just has he used to gang-rape women at parties.

    You have to be incredibly misinformed to believe any of that, but a large segment of the population is incredibly misinformed. They believe what they’re told to believe, and they act accordingly.

    It seems likely that Kavanaugh is, at best, a Bush-style conservative; but liberal politicians and the controlled media were able to transform him, in the eyes of millions, into a rampaging rapist and far-right activist. That’s the real story, in my opinion.

    The standard WN line has always been that, if our people had accurate information, they would arrive at better political conclusions. Our enemies hold the same belief, which is why they spend so much of their time propagating falsehoods and excluding important truths from public discussion.

    To our side, peaceful separation seems most sensible. Why wouldn’t the left want to be rid of us as they hate us so much and blame us for all their problems? I’m sure Southerners felt the same way in 1860.

    But a spirit of hate and spite animates the left and they will not let us go (especially as others will do the fighting and dying if it comes to war).

    The military is not in sympathy with us, I spent 20 years in the army, and I can vouch that it is a leftist organization. As to having a majority of conservatives on the supreme court, when has that ever benefited us, they are just as bad as the liberals?

      The soldiers and the cops are always on the side of whoever is paying them. They’re never on the side of the people; remember Shay’s rebellion? Remember the Whisky rebellion? Remember Eisenhower bustin’ up the Bonus Army? Remember the National Guard bayoneting the protestors in Skokie?
      The American military is also a shithole of “equal opportunity”.

    “Either that, or we will be forced to wage another civil war to get our country back, and many will die.”

    This is where we’re headed. And yes, “many will die” – in the most savage, blood-drenched, apocalyptic maelstrom of unutterable violence and death the world has ever seen, since it won’t be “just a war”, but a war to literally exterminate the entire Left in this country. Millions will likely perish, with mass graves littering the nation from coast to coast….

    But once The Dark Times have ended, the colonization of the Solar System will begin. And then – not long after – the first starships will set out for Proxima Centauri B.

    I realize Spencer probably just wrote this as an address to Leftists as a rhetorical device, but really, it’s quite obvious that the liberal Left is bent on our destruction. First of all, they regard us as absolute evil incarnate, and second, despite a few recent setbacks, they’re still holding nearly all the cards, sociologically speaking, and things are still very much going their way. I’m sure they still think that their eventual absolute victory is inevitable. And really, they’re still justified in thinking so, given current trends.

    I also think Spencer makes a couple of dangerous assumptions. First of all, Kavanaugh and the other conservatives on the Supreme Court are not “ourguys,” any more than the Republican Party is. While I prefer that Kavanaugh got the nomination as opposed to anyone the Democrats would have put up, if for no other reason that it was so triggering to them, we have to remember that he is a neocon through and through: he was buddies with George W. Bush, and signed off on the PATRIOT Act and other surveillance measures that could very well be used against us in the future. He is also on the record as being pro-immigration. So it may be good in certain respects, but we should have no illusions that these people have our backs. They don’t.

    Also, your assumption that the US military is sympathetic to our Cause is quite wrongheaded. While some of the rank-and-file (at least some of the white ones, at any rate) may sympathize with us, it’s quite clear that the people running the military are just as much a part of the liberal system as the rest of our political institutions. See Ash Donaldson’s “Sword of Dishonor” that we published here over the summer, if you need proof of this. Anyway, if a civil war does break out, it’s not going to be Republicans and the military on one side and liberals on the other, or even Trump supporters (many of whom are not on board with our agenda) on one side and liberals on the other. We can’t know how a catastrophe might influence people to come to our side, but this sort of apocalyptic thinking which holds that we just need to hold on until The Collapse happens, and then the majority of white Americans will rise up and take our side, is really unjustified. It might help us, but more likely you would see several factions emerge (things are as likely to split along class lines as along racial ones, for example), and as in any conflict, most will probably do nothing but try to save their own skins. We may very well be headed for such a conflict but we’re also not prepared for it, any more than the Left is.

      Indeed. The idea that “the military is on our side” was true in the 1980s but no longer. Not only have the affirmative action programs of the military increased its non-white and female components, the impact of social engineering policies going back to DADT in the 1990s resulted in a quiet exodus of the conservative Christians I knew in the 90s. They have been replaced by an influx of millenial “South Park Republicans,” who are totally indifferent to these policies, or even mildly supportive, and only want lower taxes and a strong military. And the liberals in uniform, knowing that the top brass is with them on social issues, gender relations, and multiculturalism, are even more vocal than their actual numbers, which are not to be dismissed, would suggest.

      Consider https://www.militarytimes.com/news/2016/09/21/this-poll-of-the-u-s-military-has-gary-johnson-tied-with-donald-trump-in-the-race-for-president Trump was in a dead heat with Gary Johnson. Only 38% supported Trump. As expected, the political affiliations vary by service, with the USMC being the most conservative (as it is also the most white and male). The really instructive statistic is the officer/enlisted breakdown, with only 26% of officers supporting Trump. These are the college-educated, and the ones who have most bought into the ruling ideology, which they are in charge of administering to the enlisted ranks in the form of sensitivity sessions and HR policies. As for the military academies, they have gone from being bastions of conservatism and tradition into the becoming the cutting edge for celebrations of gay identity, transgenderism, affirmative action, and de-Christianization.

      So in a social crisis like the one envisioned above, I doubt we could count on the military. I suspect that anyone for whom blood and soil mean anything would shed their uniform and take up their place at the family homestead, while the rest would follow the orders of the officers appointed over them.

        Forgive the ineptitude with html. The data I cited came from a Sep. 2016 poll by the Military Times. Suffice it to say that when the election did come around, many in uniform who preferred Johnson came around to vote for HRC.

      I don’t know whether to laugh or laugh harder. I completely agree with your opinion that Mr. Quinn is using this article as a rhetorical device; however, even as that it is about 20 years past its expiration date. I also very much appreciate Greg Johnson’s belief in the possibility of a peaceful solution, but I don’t have much hope personally. And I am not some prepper or a young skinhead looking for a fight. I am old, most of my body parts are close to useless and I will be long dead when things really get swinging. I just hope white people are preparing for that day while always seeking a peaceful solution.
