The Last Day of Christmas

Salvador Dalí Christmas card

1,062 words

A few years ago I took my four-year-old son to a Santa Claus event being held at a local supermarket. They were offering snacks and goodies and craft activities as well as the opportunity to sit on the bearded man’s lap and tell him what you want to find under the tree that year. Of course, my son loved every moment of it. But he started to love it even more when one of his best friends from daycare showed up. This was a little Indian kid with whom he was inseparable at the time. And with him was his father who was all smiles and wanting to make chitchat with me.

Since gravitating to the Dissident Right, I’ve been trying to limit my interactions with non-whites as much as possible. Why be friendly with a person whom you would just as soon deport? It is a mask I would simply prefer not to put on. But I can still remember a time when I wasn’t like this. I’ve always felt kind of like an outsider among white people and so, even as late as ten years ago, I would go out of my way to find things in common with foreigners, and that included non-whites. Of course, very few of these relationships ever lasted, but that never deterred me. So when the boy’s father shook my hand and seemed eager to talk, I was tempted to ask him if he was Christian. Why else would an Indian father take his little son to see Santa Claus?

But I didn’t. Fortunately, I was sitting at a table with my laptop, working on an article for Counter-Currents, and he took the hint that I didn’t wish to be disturbed. But later on as I watched the two boys play and run around, I couldn’t help but notice all the non-Christian non-whites who were milling about the store that morning. Women in hijabs, mostly. These were a mix of North African and Middle Eastern Muslims who, along with their children, were ignoring the red, white, and green playfest going on with Santa in the supermarket. Of course, they didn’t care.

This made me consider that, with enough of these people, there would be no Santa playfests at all. Attitudes towards Christmas among these people range from indifferent to outright hostile. Why would they tolerate outsider holiday celebrations? When have they ever done that? Has Santa and his reindeer ever made a stop at Mecca or Medina? Furthermore, how are we going to explain to our credulous children why their friends Muhammad or Abdul do not believe in Santa?

(A similar experience happened during Halloween over a decade ago when a Muslim family in our neighborhood put up a sign on their door which read, “Closed for business.” I guess shelling out thirty bucks for candy and playing along with a perfectly innocent children’s holiday was just too much for these people to bear. Not only that, they had to make this rebuff explicit in writing. They could have simply kept their lights off and no one would have bothered them. But no. And when I voiced my displeasure at this, as well as a lingering grudge over 9-11 and the various Jihadist terrorist attacks which had occurred since, my mostly-white neighbors tried to shush me as if I were the bad guy—a perfect example of how racial diversity encourages whites to select for weakness rather than strength.)

And it’s not just about losing Christmas and Halloween. It’s also about accepting Islam as the new normal. Around the same time, when I went to a Hallmark store in a strip mall, I was shocked to hear Islamic prayer emanating through the walls from the adjacent Middle Eastern restaurant. It was ten o’clock in the morning on a weekday. It was loud, it was amplified, and it was annoying. I didn’t bother bringing this up to the nice young white women working at the Hallmark store since they seemed determined to smile through it all. They’d rather piously declare that Muslim farts smell like roses than ever violate the ‘diversity is our strength’ mantra on which they were raised. After our transaction, I smiled self-consciously at the cashier and rolled my eyes in the in the direction of the prayer, intimating that she could talk about the noise pollution if she wanted to. She didn’t. She told me to have a nice day instead. What I wanted to tell her was that diversity is not our strength. Diversity is their strength. But I didn’t.

Looking back, I wish I had.

As I reflected on how I snubbed that nice Indian man, I wondered if he knew that his very presence in America was threatening the Christmas he was celebrating with his son. He himself may wear red-and-green sweaters and trim a tree in his living room every December, but the waves and waves on non-whites that enter our country along with him do not and will not. Is taking in a tiny subset of foreigners who respect Western traditions enough to adopt them themselves worth ultimately losing these traditions entirely? This is the kind of question that white people should be asking themselves right now.

I understand the many on the Dissident Right are ambivalent about Christmas. Perhaps it’s too commercial or materialistic. Perhaps it’s too Christian or religious. Perhaps. But the fact remains for me that Christmas has produced some of the happiest and most lasting memories from my childhood. I cherish these memories. And it’s not just about receiving gifts under the tree, but also about giving gifts and eating great food and spending time with family and relatives I saw so infrequently. I was—and still am—a sap for all it. Christmas is so ingrained in me and my family that I suspect that European whites would have been celebrating it in a similar way regardless of whether Christianity ever came to Europe.

This is why I get defensive when non-Christians (Jews and Muslims, mostly) attack Christmas or defile it. It’s a part of me, and they wish ultimately to destroy it. They would prefer to live in a world in which jingle bells and ho-ho-ho’s and all the wonderful things about Christmas no longer exist . . . or become drowned out by amplified Islamic prayer emanating through walls.

    Contra your experience, I noted that my nabe in “America’s most diverse county” which is mostly Islamic of various types was full of whole families trick or treating. As a pagan holiday they should shun it like Evangelicals. I raised the question on FB and folks said the lure of gibs was the key.

    In Japan, the first time I recall, the only Chistmas music was Beethoven’s 9th.

    Since then, shops have latched on to it as a way to compel spending.

    Until this year, supermarkets, convenience shops, some chain restaurants, and so on would only play shitty jew-penned ‘Christmas songs’.

    This year, it is wall-to-wall black treacle, not a Christmas or Christian theme to be heard, I would guess that it is the same in the U.S.A., would appreciate feedback on the situation there.

    The solstice here is on the 22nd, today as I write.

    Really horrid sounds, would appreciate it if U.S. readers could enlighten me on this particularly vomit-inducing form of ‘black music’.

    It is new, since it is new and from the Jewish music ‘industry”, I would expect that U.S. readers in at least some places have the same kind of mush force-fed to them in sort-of-private-public places.

    The cashier laughed, understandidg the point (nonne else war waitng at the time).

    It is embarrassing, to say the least, that we as a collective accepted the lie that “diversity is a strength”, that the less the people in a country have in common the stronger that country is. That is so stupid on our part, so dumb. Our ancestors would be ashamed of us. For those who bought the lie, you better get Congress to replace “united” with “diverse”, as in the Diverse States of America.

      If you are referring to that b & w photo of Jared Taylor, well, I would not have known it was him if his name wasn’t under the picture. They work hard at making a person ugly as hell, don’t they. He looks like someone who’s been rioting and setting fires for hours.

    I understand the many on the Dissident Right are ambivalent about Christmas. Perhaps it’s too commercial or materialistic.

    I like Victorian era Christmas better than the commercialized modern one, but I would rather the latter than Ramadan or Hanukkah.

    But he started to love it even more when one of his best friends from daycare showed up. This was a little Indian kid with whom he was inseparable at the time. And with him was his father who was all smiles and wanting to make chitchat with me.

    Of the few non-whites who go along with white things, a greater proportion are Hispanic or South Asian. They’re both descended from a mix of whites and non-whites. Hispanics are a mix of Iberian and black and/or Amerindian, and South Asians are a mix of white R1a people, Iranid middle east farmers, and australoids. Hispanics and South Asians are genetically and phenotypically more similar to whites than are East Asians or blacks. However, they are still different enough in my opinion that they can’t as a whole be like whites psychologically or culturally, and that is okay. They have their own ways, and the world would be less interesting without them, but it would not only be less interesting without whites but suffer a civilizational setback. Western Europeans generate probably 80% the world’s innovation. Their enlightenment era forefathers dragged us into the modern world, and if someone can get us out of it, it is probably them.

    Mass immigration will transform whites into a hybrid race. We have examples of hybrid races and they are not as dynamic as whites. Central Asians in the “istan” nations are mostly a mix of white, Asian, and middle eastern. While they are higher functioning than blacks, they are not as innovative as whites. Nor are most groups of South Asians and low-white admixture mestizos. They do not indirectly benefit the world with innovation like whites do.

    However, you shouldn’t hate non-white immigrants for wanting to be around whites or participate in white culture. Admirers can never be scorned, but if you want to save the white race, you can’t let them come in because all people who live together eventually hybridize genetically and culturally– and for the worse. The best way to appreciate non- white admirers and for them to admire us is from afar.

      The political theme of this blog aside, I’m Indian and have always loved Christmas and its spirit. For what it’s worth the holiday is quite (or at least surprisingly) prevalent in India as well, and not only among the Christians. (All the hotels among other attractions in major cities will have well-appointed Christmas decor and people will wish each other, to a lesser extent).

      Oddly enough my affinity for Christmas is somewhat limited to cool or cold climates (somehow `Silent Night` feels right in the snow), which may have to do with a childhood in the Midwest (or just a sense of the holiday’s aesthetic heritage in parts of Europe). I find it kind of sad whenever people whom I wish a `Merry Christmas` after they wish me a `Happy Holidays` (like the doormen at stores) are pleasantly taken aback and surprised.

      I will say India’s liberal press really loves scorning the masses for Diwali celebrations involving fireworks, and the elite media really have it ought for religious celebrations of light and joy. (Tho Pride month more prevalent as a religious holiday in cities than Christmas).

        Thanks for sharing. Hindu people are very open minded about sending their kids to Catholic school. They dont have the hostility to Christianity most Jews do. The next time I see a South Asian person, I’ll wish them a Merry Christmas.

        Overall, I consider South Asians, Iranians, Turks, Cypriots and Caucasus peoples to be non-white but close to the white borderline. They are genetically closest to whites of all non-whites. You can see this on a principal component analysis. Together with whites they are Caucasoids, meaning they have similar skull, face, and brain characteristics. This relates to mental function in my opinion.

        On Myers Briggs, South Asians are closer to whites than Hispanics. They differ only on Thinker vs Feeler psychology. Whites are Feelers and South Asians Thinkers, which basically means South Asians are more rational and whites more spirited, principled etc. On the other traits they are nearly identical. I imagine other non-whites close to the borderline are similar to South Asians.

        Intellectually, South Asians in America don’t reflect their home nations well because their average IQ is 110 whereas in India the average IQ is I believe in the upper 80s, with it differing strongly along caste lines.

        Overall, I’m not surprised Indians adopt Christmas or that some whites adopt Buddhism. They are close genetically, and it makes sense.

          Thanks for that nice dose of what I suppose we can call “biodiversitist liberalism”, but it ain’t gonna cut it. Look at the ideological proclivities of “South Asians” in the US. Bobby Jindal aside (with a bare pass to Nikki Haley), they are some of the MOST “woke” and radically “progtardive” of any nonwhites (absolutely more so than Hispanics or Jews – which is saying something). I am constantly amazed at how every political mention of someone of that ethnicity showcases someone on the really Far Left (ie, the Sanders as opposed to Pelosi Left).

          The white man needs to be maximally hated and even hunted. We must psychologically prepare ourselves for a coming world war in which we have only ourselves alone (minus half the populace who are race traitors) upon whom to rely (along with a few possible allies, like maybe the Japs or Taiwanese or Hong Kongers; perhaps the Parsees; some Latinos who inaccurately self-identify as white; some secular expat Persians; and possibly – I’m going to get in trouble here, but I am a {Guillaume} “Fayeist” – the Israeli Right). Hindus are only our allies provisionally against the Muslims. Otherwise, they too are at best our competitors; at worst, yet another racial enemy.

      If they won’t leave, they fundamentally hate and are exploiting you.

      Access to White people is NOT a human right. That they want it only proves the point— diversity is a weapon of parasitism and exploitation of Whites.

      Hi James D,
      It’s not hate. Part of me feels sad about how I behaved. I just don’t want to end up a minority in my own country, and non-white immigrants are going to make this a reality likely in my lifetime. I quite rationally see them as a threat, regardless of how nice or respectful they are.

        The problem is no a ‘personnel’ problem but a political problem. The issue is not whether some people who are non-White are bad people, but the fact that the politics of non-Whites is bad for Whites. I don’t hate non-Whites, I just don’t see any reason to accommodate their political (or cultural or economic) aspirations. I know a few fine non-White people and plenty of shifty, no-account Whites. White Nationalism is not personal, it’s politics. I don’t need to hate non-Whites in order to realize that anti-White politics poses a threat to me, mine and my people and that the presence of non-Whites in Western nations makes anti-White politics possible. If everyone in the West was White, it would be really hard to get anti-White sentiment stoked.

        Sorry, when I wrote “you shouldn’t hate non-white immigrants for wanting to be around whites or participate in white culture” I wasn’t referencing your sentiments. Social avoidance is how I’d characterize your sentiment. I agree with avoiding non-whites on the macro level, ie, by choosing a white place to live or white place to hang out, but I disagree with not talking to non-whites who happen to be around. It’s better to talk to them because then you understand them. It is emotionally straining to a degree because you secretly want people in that group gone, but the way I look at it is that you don’t have a problem with them as an individual but on a group level, so it is not personal. They may be the best of their group. As long as you’re not miscegenating with them or promoting chain migration with them, I think it is okay to talk to them. You’ve got to be strong-minded though. You can’t let them sway your stance.

    Two points — the woman in the Hallmark store is forbidden any human emotion whatever on pain of losing her job. Also, Europeans were celebrating Jül for many thousands of years longer than we have been celebrating Christmas. Christmas is a middle-eastern veneer over our indigenous solstice observance. Whatever threat middle eastern monotheism poses to Christmas is just a continuation of previous middle eastern destruction of actual European culture.

    I’m not a Christian either, but Christmas is such a fun holiday for our children, and for us getting together with our families and friends (and is usually a day off work with pay – what’s not to love?) that to lose it because ‘it offends the immigrants’ is the height of nastiness due to the immigrants’ self-righteousness! It’s OUR country, and they are guests. They will never assimilate, so why are we kow-towing to them!

    Why be friendly with a person whom you would just as soon deport?

    Because you don’t have the power. We live in a multi-cultural society not of our making so no point being over the top especially if your boy’s best friend is an Indian. Slow and easy.

    As a Christian you should remind your minister or priest of Aquinas https://www.eurocanadian.ca/2019/12/for-christmas-2019-saint-thomas-aquinas-said-be-humane-to-strangers-but-take-measures-to-protect-national-good.html#more

      I disagree.

      Slow and easy is exactly how this occurred to begin with.

      Its called ‘tolerance’ of your dispossession.

      That’s what you’re arguing for by such tolerance— and for someone else to not cause trouble as it progresses.

      I agree you don’t need to see out enemies. But don’t cooperate even implicitly either.

        I agree with Cecil. I do not hate other races or people but I am so tired of having to communicate and wear masks in front of them. Everything is exhausting nowadays.

        I miss the homogeneous neighborhood I used to have; things were understood naturally, nothing had to be explained. A Japanese friend of mine calls it “reading the air” and how foreigners in Japan simply cannot do it.

        I would also prefer my children not fraternize with foreign peoples. In maturity they can, but being so young and having so much propaganda thrown at them since birth … I don’t want this for my child.

        I would prefer much less “Woke Conservatives”, Centrists and Civic Nationalists in the future. They tie your hands when you’re being attacked.

        Ah, yes, tolerance. Say what you like about tolerance but it sure works. The Abbe Barruel in his History of Jacobism quoted D’Alembert as having successfully established tolerance after “strangling the Jesuits” and the program roles on going from success to greater success.

          Tolerance is slowly ceding ground hoping that they stop. A position of weakness clinging on to something because you know you are powerless.

          Christians, Conservatives, white people and generally moral people have tolerated far too much.
