It’s Still a Grand Old Flag

A popular singer-songwriter I’ve never heard of, Macy Gray, has written an op-ed saying it’s time to replace the American flag. She trots out the now standard leftist tropes about the flag’s not representing all Americans, since it is part of a shameful, irredeemably racist past, and she wants a new flag that is not “divisive” and that all Americans can be proud of.

I disagree, of course, and note that Ms. Gray’s hoped for new flag would be at least as divisive as Old Glory, since it would be a purposeful repudiation of the American past, the people who made that past, and all of us who still take pride in that past.

But I will say this: what she is proposing is entirely consistent with how we have been acting from the death of George Floyd right through the adoption of Juneteenth as a national holiday, an adoption preceded by essentially no debate.

And unless we do develop some spines, Old Glory’s eventual demise is inevitable.

As for the rest of Ms. Gray’s argument, I’ll give the final word to a great American songwriter as portrayed by a great American actor. I’ve watched this scene many times, since Cleveland’s UHF station used to show the movie in which it appears every Fourth of July. I stand with George M. Cohan and James Cagney: it’s still a Grand Old Flag. I also suspect this scene will trigger Ms. Gray, but, to quote a great American film made three years before this one, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

The “Endless Invasion” and Our Replacement

By Wayne Allensworth

In a recent column, Pat Buchanan noted rampant dysfunction in our land–mass shootings, the George Floyd religious cult, skyrocketing murder rates–and wrote that “it seems our country is coming apart.” If that weren’t enough, in March, and again in April, 167,000 alien invaders were caught crossing the Southern border of the United States. They will probably soon be released into the American heartland.

This is just the tip of a gigantic iceberg. As Pat Buchanan pointed out, we are in for an “endless invasion,” with a mass migration of historic magnitude underway, as teeming masses are on the march from Asia, Africa, Central and South America, and the Islamic world. Europe and North America are currently on the receiving end of the beginning of a nation and civilization killing demographic tidal wave. The destiny of the migrants headed for our shores, as Mr. Buchanan added, “may be to replace us.”

Judging by surveys taken in the countries that are the sources of most of the mass migration, there are likely more on the way.

According to a Gallup World Poll survey released in 2018, for instance, 15% of the world’s adult population, some 750 million people, expressed a desire to move to another country. Gallup further noted that this is a trend that has been showing up in its surveys for nearly twenty years–and that the United States has consistently been the most desirable destination.

Steve Sailer has repeatedly called attention to the World’s Most Important Graph, one charting the population explosion in Africa. African migrants are already turning up in Mexico, headed for the United States. There are plenty more of them to come to Europe and America, and today’s migrants can reach their chosen destinations much more readily than during the age of sail. What’s more, “caravans” can be organized with the help of cell phones and social media.

Mr. Buchanan also wrote that as a Camp of the Saints invasion was developing in the United States, native-born Americans have ceased to reproduce themselves. As yours truly wrote recently, even what appears to be good news can be deceptive. Yes, the number of divorces is down, but that’s because marriage has collapsed. There are lot of factors contributing to the collapse of marriage and family in the United States–the sexual revolution of the 60’s, abortion, the pill, and the decline of Christianity and traditional morality among them–but could it be that subconsciously, members of the American ethnos, our “American Remnant,” who might otherwise have married and had children, see the writing on the wall and have already given up?

Whites are experiencing more suicides and deaths by drug addiction and alcoholism, the so-called “deaths of despair” that are reminiscent of post-Soviet Russia, and closer to home, life on American Indian reservations. This is what dispossession looks like. This is the pit the Globalists and their Leftists allies want us to fall into, as they clear the road for their Hellish utopia.

Our people have been in denial for too long, but that denial is wearing thin. Tucker Carlson recently garnered a lot of attention–and plenty of media attacks–for bringing up the Great Replacement. At the same time, Carlson could not explicitly state who is being slated for replacement, and he couched his argument against open borders in political language about the immigrant invasion diminishing Americans’ voting rights, emphasizing that the Democrats benefit from that. That’s true as far as it goes, but Carlson didn’t mention that it is not just the Democrats who favor policies that will overwhelm us demographically.

Note, for instance, that some GOP luminaries seem to be warming to the idea of statehood for Puerto Rico. Republican airheads want us to believe that they can “win” there, but to what end if our demographic replacement proceeds apace?

The battle we are facing, but have not yet begun to fight, is not simply about politics. We can try to dodge the central issue of the Great Replacement–that its aim is to overwhelm the American ethnos–by making limited arguments about “owning the Dems,” and about voting rights, saving “the Republic,” and preserving an all but defunct Constitution, all of which are cultural manifestations of the American national core our enemies want to do away with. Such efforts betray a lack of confidence, and they are another form of denial.

Until we identify ourselves and decide that we are worthy of defending for our own sake, as a nation that has a right to exist, that we are a distinct people with a distinct personality that is valuable in itself, like a family, we will lose.

Also Called June

Confronted by the sheer amount of media hoopla over “Pride Month,” I am reminded of Sam Francis’ quip about another month-long observance of a political agenda that was then being assiduously promoted by the media: “Black History Month, sometimes called February.”

What began with “gay pride parades” in a handful of cities is now a month-long celebration of something that is no longer limited to “gays” but includes every coupling imaginable except the one coupling that actually matters for the survival of civilization: marriage between a man and a woman, something known simply as “marriage” until the last 15 or so years.

After all, the difference between heterosexual coupling and the many arrangements between homosexual men, lesbians, men and women who have undergone multiple surgeries in an effort to become something they are not, and all the rest covered by the ever lengthening rainbow of LGBTQIA+dom could not be more stark: take one hundred heterosexual couples and deposit them on a desert island, a century later you will find a growing human society. Take one hundred couples of the type we are commanded to celebrate for the month of June and place them on a different desert island and a century later there will be only ruins.

Different societies have drawn somewhat different conclusions from this fact, ranging from vigorous prosecution of proscribed sexual acts to varying degrees of tolerance, but no society before ours has done what we are doing: so thoroughgoing is the celebration of “pride” that growing numbers of young people are claiming to be part of the rainbow, undercutting the very argument that was used to overthrow marriage in the first place. Born that way? Maybe not. Or at least not always.

Where does this end? Our geopolitical rivals are hardly following our lead, despite the rainbow banners festooning myriad American embassies. China is dealing with declining birthrates by encouraging couples to have three children where, not long ago, they were coerced into having only one. Vladimir Putin honors mothers of large families with medals and public recognition.

I certainly understand why even many conservatives have come to accept much of what was unthinkable only a short time ago. But I do wonder, a century from now, what the discernible differences will be between those societies that embraced “pride” and those that didn’t, and how many will still be celebrating “pride.”

After all, the future belongs to those who show up. And the way to make sure your nation’s people show up is to strengthen marriage, an institution that naturally, though not inevitably, produces children, not to redefine “marriage” to encompass other arrangements that don’t.

American Citizenship’s Not Worth a Warm Bucket of Spit

By Wayne Allensworth

US citizenship is becoming something else to apologize for. After all, it’s not “inclusive,” reflecting the retrograde notion that normal people should prioritize the wellbeing of their fellow citizens over foreigners. Setting such priorities is probably “racist,” to boot. Establishing hierarchies of value is apparently another example of “whiteness” in action, on a par with the rule of law, the presumption of innocence, math, and the value of objective evidence.

With that in mind, check this out:

“U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday revoked a 2019 proclamation by former President Donald Trump that sought to bar the entry of immigrants who could not prove they had health insurance or could cover health care costs.

In an announcement by the White House, the Democratic president said the suspension imposed by his Republican predecessor ‘does not advance the interests of the United States.’

Trump issued a proclamation in October 2019 requiring all prospective immigrants to show proof of U.S. health insurance within 30 days of their arrival in the United States or enough money to pay for ‘reasonably foreseeable medical costs.'”

It appears that certain “immigrant advocates” were complaining that the Trump proclamation made it tougher to immigrate to the US, which they believe should be a “human right” like abortion, “gay marriage,” and “transgender” surgery for children. Actual Americans appear to have few “advocates” whose primary activity is protecting their interests, especially not in the US government. Washington is chock-full of lobbyists, but real Americans are hard pressed to find many denizens of the globo-capital who are willing to seriously lobby for their interests.

Dear readers, did you really believe that defending the interests of actual Americans was what the government was for? Au contraire, you bigoted Euro-centric Neanderthals! Babylon on the Potomac has more pressing concerns to deal with than those of lowly Americans, especially if you are a member of the American ethnos, the dreaded “non-Hispanic white” census category that automatically entails banishment to the globo-state’s outer dark.  

Sleepy Joe recently had the servants set out the best silver and china to greet some of his favorite humanoids–a group of “undocumented Americans,” a category unknown to our unenlightened ancestors:

And he wasn’t done yet. According to Breitbart, Biden has taken $2 billion from Americans’ healthcare programs to help deliver migrant youths and children to their illegal-immigrant parents throughout the United States. The “redirected funds,” which reportedly includes money intended to replenish the country’s Strategic National Stockpile of medical supplies, will approach $9 billion by October. Bottom rail on top now!

“Cactus Jack” Garner, one time speaker of the House of Representatives and FDR’s somewhat recalcitrant vice president (1933-1941), once famously described that office as being “not worth a bucket of warm spit” (though the story is that Cactus Jack actually mentioned another bodily fluid). We can now confidently say the same about American citizenship, the devaluation of which is indicative of the bizarre, topsy turvy situation we and other whites in Europe and the Anglo-sphere find ourselves in, with the state actively working against the nation. Whether the managerial regime is undercutting citizenship or replacing the national core, we should have no illusions about what is happening. It’s past time for us to re-evaluate what “patriotism” means under such circumstances.

The Great Replacement Proceeds. The Latest On Sleepy Joe’s Open Borders Policy

  1. He did not resume building the wall President Trump began building to stop the illegal-alien invasion across our southwest border.

2. Border agents apprehended more than 178,000 illegals in April.

3. Since Oct. 1, border agents have collared 6,000 criminals.

Your Tax Dollars At Work. Fauci’s Virus Outfit Funded Wuhan Bat-Virus Lab

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the sainted man running the United States, oversees the agency that sent your tax dollars to the lab in Wuhan, China, that genetically engineered bat viruses to infect human beings. Four years ago, the Chinese military discussed weaponizing bat viruses.

Last year, a bat virus caused a worldwide pandemic that wrecked the U.S. economy, helped end a successful presidency, and killed more than 3 million people.

Nothing to see here. Move along, MOVE ALONG!

With the United States of America Controlled by Radical Leftists, What Does “Patriotism” Mean?

By Wayne Allensworth

The old America many of us remember fondly has died of a theory — the theory of radical egalitarianism manifested since the 1960’s as the “blank slate” view of human nature. Sensible people acknowledge — or at least quietly admit to themselves — that social-economic disparities among racial and ethnic groups are most likely the natural result of differences in the abilities and interests of those groups. Engineering an equality of outcomes for all would require totalitarianism. Freedom or absolute equality, take your pick.

The globalists and their leftist allies cannot ever admit such a thing, as it would mean denying their ideology and the viability of their project of radically restructuring the world. Thus, the Revolution is never ending, as the goal of absolute equality is impossible. Like the Soviets under Stalin, the revolutionaries must constantly seek explanations for the failure of the Plan. If blacks are disproportionately imprisoned, then “systemic racism” must be to blame. If women are “underrepresented” in STEM fields, there must be a nefarious “glass ceiling” blocking their advancement. And that means a forever witch hunt for “wreckers” and “saboteurs” in the form of phantom “white supremacists” working through an invisible “institutional racism” supported by an evil “patriarchy.”

What’s more, as the Revolution becomes institutionalized, sweeping all before it, it becomes both a fervently religious project, as people who have lost their traditional religion seek redemption by other means, and a vehicle for upward mobility within the system that supports it. As with Stalinist apparatchiks in the USSR, advancement by denunciation is a viable means of working within the system, though the virtue-signaling apparatchiks themselves must be ever watchful, lest the Revolution consume its children.

Sleepy Joe’s administration is radically left-wing, openly pursuing an anti-American agenda that was implicit during Obama’s presidency. From imposing “critical race theory” to purging the military to essentially ending border controls, all with the encouragement and support of a vast array of mass media, government agencies, educational institutions, and corporations, the managerial system is brazenly and unabashedly deconstructing the vestiges of an old America it despises. For all intents and purposes, the Globalist Blob is our system of government. The “checks and balances” and representative institutions you learned about in school are corrupt, even inoperative, especially at the national level. We cannot expect the law to protect us “deplorables.” Derek Chauvin’s conviction was a foregone conclusion. Donating money to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund can get you fired.

“Constitutionalism” as a defensive strategy is a failure, not only because our opponents have deconstructed and re-interpreted the document itself practically out of existence, but because the most ardent constitutionalists failed to acknowledge that the document and the political structures related to it were the products of a specific time, place, and people, and that constitutionalism itself cannot remain viable if the heirs of the people who created it are attacked, degraded, denounced, and replaced.

Our vaunted “freedom” was not something that happened by accident or because of ideology. It was a cultural artifact of our people, of the habits and customs they inherited. There cannot be any America without a strong, confident, and self-aware American ethnos. That’s why our very determined enemies carry on a relentless assault on “white supremacy.” It explains why they attack “whiteness,” including the presumption of innocence, the Electoral College, and the concept of equality before the law.

The United States of America as a political manifestation of the American ethnos is dead, but the ethnos, weakened and under siege, lives on. Acknowledging that the global capital on the Potomac and the system it represents are indeed hostile to us is a necessary step toward thinking about what comes next. To begin again, a reassessment of what “patriotism” means is necessary.

At this late date, with our enemies firmly in control, Scott Greer correctly answered the question of what patriotism means for the American Remnant:

Republican “Transgenders”: The Dems are the Real Transphobes!

By Wayne Allensworth

I have to admit, the California governor’s race is going to be quite amusing, with Republicans accepting “Caitlyn” as one of their own—next thing you know, they’ll have Tim Scott (the Dems are the real racists!) paired with “Caitlyn” (the Dems are the real transphobes!) to reply to Biden’s speeches. The post-American black comedy continues.

Chauvin Juror Lied. Attended Pro-Floyd Rally In D.C.

No wonder former cop Derek Chauvin was convicted. A juror in his trial lied on his jury questionnaire about attending a pro-George Floyd rally in Washington, D.C. The same juror thinks trials are meant to push social “change.”

Another juror said she feared Black Lives Matters terrorists would attack her home.

How many others jurors are tainted, and can Chauvin overturn the ridiculous “murder” conviction on appeal if judges are terrified, too?
