Nationalists often like to focus on the negative. We, Southern Nationalists, like to claim that we will retake Dixie and that the South will someday be free from its Yankee oppressors, while at the same time taking the black pill and having no hope for the future. Well, it is time for some white pills. As degenerated and broken down as Dixie is, it is still possible to save it, or at least part of it, through a number of means. The two most useful methods of ensuring that the Dixian people have a genetic future and the ability to project power on a local and possibly federal level is through community building and reviving the old Southern political bloc.
Communities are the foundation from which to build our ideal society. They facilitate family creation and reproduction. Despite all the things Southern Nationalists may attempt to do, none of it means anything if our young men are unable to find suitable women to have children with and vice versa. Simply releasing our youth into the throws of degeneracy and leftist public education will only lead to their destruction and to a lack of reproduction.
Having communities of our own also allow us to police each other and preserve our own traditions. This prevents the aforementioned degeneracy and lack of fertility, while also ensuring that each passing generation is bestowed the knowledge and understanding of our fading, but long history of traditions. No, these do not simply derive only from antebellum aristocratic traditions, but also ones of common Southern folk.
These communities could even go far enough to build their own Confederate monuments, without having to worry about leftist carpetbaggers trying to remove them. We would most likely form our own churches that support our own people, but until then, we should not neglect attending churches available to us now. The means of building these communities may be difficult in some ways, such as having to endure maybe an initial downgrade in the “niceness” of the area we live or possibly having to gentrify areas before leftist carpetbaggers can move into them, but it will be worth it.
The other means through which we can realistically begin building our future is reviving the old Southern political bloc. Dixie once used its political unity as leverage against the government during the days of the Southern Democrats. Much of that competition with the other parts of the Democratic Party came to ahead with the failed Dixiecrat Revolution of 1948. While the details of the failed Dixiecrat Party are for another article on another day, the effects of it were felt in the 1960s and 1970’s when Southerners began leaving the now Far Left Democrats in favor of the Republican party. Had the Dixiecrats stuck around and continued to utilize the South’s power as a political bloc, Southerners would have embraced it.
Since the move to Republicans, the South and all her politicians no longer seek to display or utilize power within the political arena. We lack political organization and are totally unable to get anything Southerners want done. Being the political backbone of the GOP has also led to the manipulation and warping of Southern conservatism.
By far the most devastating blow to the South’s political power is the underutilization of governors. Governors have quite a lot of power and influence in their respective states. In fact, the reason the Dixiecrats failed to have much of an impact on the 1948 election is because many Southern governors were too afraid to endorse the party due to the strong party loyalties among the Southern populace. They were cowards who sought reelection over making a difference or standing up for their beliefs. Ironically, it was the states (Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and South Carolina) whose political leadership cast their lot for the Dixiecrats that gave their electoral votes to Strom Thurmond. Governors were largely responsible for those electoral votes. Unfortunately, governors have neglected their power since the 60’s, with the last notable person to use it, to any meaningful extent, being George Wallace.
We need a Southern political bloc to stand up for us if we are to make real political progress in the future. No, they do not have to be ideological radicals; they must simply be radicals in terms of action. Phil Bryant, the Governor of Mississippi, is staunchly pro-Confederate, despite coming off as a bit of a moderate. After being accused of racism for supporting the current and true Mississippi state flag, he declared April to be Confederate History Month. Texas Governor Greg Abbott appears to be a decent governor and lacking in anti-Southern sentiments; however, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick has openly supported Confederate Monuments. The new Georgia Governor, Brian Kemp, is a helluva fire-brand and comes off as almost Eugene Talmadge-esque in nature. Rick Perry, the former Governor of Texas and current Secretary of Energy, once made a speech that seemed to make allusions to secession. He may have backtracked this statement to save face, but we all know what he meant. The list goes on. Forming a movement that would convince these people to begin working together to form a strong alliance of Southerners at the state level and federal level could reap wonders for Dixie in the political arena, an arena we have neglected to participate in for at least three generations now. Going a step further and building alliances with other groups that might not entirely supported all our ideological causes could be an effective way of making this happen.
The men who justifiably seceded from the Union, while supporting a narrative that the Fire Eaters had been pushing for a long time, were not ideological extremists. Jefferson Davis was easily a moderate and many other Southern military leaders opposed secession, only fighting out of loyalty to their people. The Southern Democrats like Eugene Talmadge, George Wallace, Strom Thurmond, Fielding Wright, John E. Rankin, Theodore Bilbo, etc. were mostly fire-brands, but they only espoused ideas and beliefs that Southerners already held at the time, beliefs that still permeate among many today.
George Wallace is infamously known for his “Segregation Now, Segregation Tomorrow, Segregation Forever” speech, but the entirety of it was not that much different than something you could hear a genuine conservative say today. These men were well dressed, well spoken and loaded with political energy, an energy that American politics has not seen until recently with Donald Trump. This could possibly explain why Dixians love him so much.
Building the foundation for Dixie’s future may seem far away, but we should not get too tangled up in ideological esotericism or neglecting community building. While we have a long way to go, the means of achieving our goals are not as complicated as we may think.
There is hope for our future, but we must be willing to play the game of politics and endure hardship to build communities for our people. There is still hope, and the fact that we are still here is only proof that God is not through with us. He has blessed us with the tools we need to save our people; it is merely our responsibility to seize the opportunities afforded to us and save Dixie from utter destruction.
