Recent removal of several of our cherished Southern cultural artifacts at the hands of Black and (((Carpetbagger))) city councilmen has led me to ponder how we as southerners ever came to this point. The arrival to where we are now could have been seen by our forefathers who fought against the Civil Rights (((activists))) during the 60’s and those who surrendered begrudgingly at Appomattox. They saw that their actions will reverberate through history, and reflect how people will view their cause.
Many leftists, mainstream conservatives and even those in the “Alt Right” sphere have come to the conclusion that Southern Nationalism/Dixian Identity is a lost cause. They relate the symbols and history of our nation to our defeat during the War of Northern Aggression and our attempt to stop the overt social engineering of our Southern society during the fifties and sixties. In the mind of the non-Southerner, the Southern nation is built on defeat and retreat. But as Southerners, we realize that these defeats have been milestones in the historical timeline of our nation, strengthening our identity and giving us a clear understanding of who we are. I do not think any white ethnic group on the North American continent (except perhaps the Quebecois or Cajuns) can lay claim to such a clear understanding of their history and identity. And proud of that history and identity we should be.
But what if things were different?
What if we had won the first battle for our future in the War of Northern Aggression? What if we had won in the court battles waged against us during the fifties and sixties? Well, if either of those things had happened, our Southern culture, history and people would not be in the state they are today. Our culture would not be denigrated on American television and movies (Django Unchained, Beverley Hillbillies, Talladega Nights, etc), our people would not be displaced out of their own neighborhoods by marauding mestizos or hunted by feral blacks through the streets their forefathers had built (Charlotte, anyone?) and our monuments and symbols wouldn’t have been taken down by city councils full of blacks and Yankee transplants.
What went wrong?
As southerners, we revel in the fact that we have a very unique history and identity in the larger scope of Western Civilization. We have a lot to be proud of, a lot to enjoy, but with this enjoyment, comes responsibility and duty. We revel in our history, but do we look forward to our future? With native Southerners becoming minorities in the cities and towns their ancestors and worked and bled for, to the loss of our cherished Southern accent and religion to (((public education system))) foisted upon us by an unholy coalition of Jews and Yankees who seek nothing more than the complete eradication of Southern character.
As Southerners, our response to all of this has been almost retreat into our own homes, our own small isolated spaces where we want to be left alone, reveling on the greatness of our past and allowing the enemy to have a foothold in our land.
But times have changed. We can no longer escape, we can no longer participate in tactical retreat, we must focus on a future we can believe in. As Southerners, we will always have a special connection to the past, but we must have an even more vested interest in our future. In short, we must take a progressive view of our future. Not (((progressive))) in the Judeo-Bolshevik sense (progress for progress’s sake), but progress out of necessity.
The men who dreamt of an independent South were progressives; they recognized that in order to save their nation, they were going to have to take drastic new measures to do it. They were not complacent men, they were men who were willing to grasp onto the reigns of history and will it to their command.
This is inherent in our being, it is in our essence to dream, to plan, to act, yet for the past 60 years, the South has not been dreaming, it has not been acting, it has not been planning. It has been on a perpetual retreat, resting on our cultural laurels, suffering not only under Yankee federal tyranny, but under the recent target of our own ethnic displacement. The state of Georgia was about 71% as recently as 1990, and that number has come all the way down to 59.7% with recent Census data. North Carolina shared a similar drop from 75% European in 1990, to only 68.5% in 2010. The Great State of Texas has weathered the biggest demographic shift: from about 75% white* in 1990 (including “Hispanic Whites”, who made up a much smaller percentage with respect to the total White population during that time), down to 45% in 2010. Demographics are destiny, and as of now, the destiny of Ol’ Dixie isn’t looking so great.
Now is not the time to back down to the challenge, however. Our grand nation has endured many trials and tribulations over the course of our existence on this continent, but there always comes a time. Are we willing to take control of our own destiny, back away from (((the eternal Yankee empire))) and their hordes of both Marxist foot soldiers and foreign hordes? Are southerners up for the task? Are we up to retake everything? In order to do this, we must realize who we are, what we believe in and focus on our objective 100%. Pray to our Lord for strength and wisdom on the battlefield (political, metapolitical and spiritual).
We will need to believe in ourselves and our cause, believe in our identity. In the words of my man Stan Bush:
Dare, dare to believe you can survive
You hold the future in your hand
Dare, dare to keep all of your dreams alive
It’s time to take a stand
And you can win, if you dare
Southern Man, do you Dare?
