Nationalism "Yes!" Separatism "No!"

Succession will not succeed
Succession will not succeed

The Scots rose up yet again against the oppressors from London. They held a vote to decide whether or not to dissolve their ties with the United Kingdom yesterday. The bag-pipes wailed and the claymores were sharpened. In Glasgow they appeared set to Caber Toss about 3 centuries of membership in the UK and strike out on their own. Alas, me Laddies! When the votes were counted in Edinburgh and Fife, it was Bloody Flodden all over again. History didn’t quite repeat itself, but it still continues to rhyme. The Scots were once more hammered.


No matter how likely the Scots were to politically and economically become the North Korea of the Anglosphere, I can totally sympathize with why they wanted to ditch the modern, dehumanized nation-state. Anyone who has some days had it up to here with Generica, Home of the Reprocessed Cheeseburger, can understand Scotland’s desire to quit Mediocre Britain. The modern, sanctimonious Castrati-State kills the very soul of man if it rampages over all individualism, faith and inner meaning unchecked. So what do? Does the South rise again? Does the Republic of Texas exercise it’s secessionist put-option? Does the Hartford Convention reconvene and select Howard Dean to be Dear Leader? Should The Nine Nations of North America become the nine nations of North America? No, we saw that movie play out last night.

I say all of this because it wouldn’t quite be such a repetition of the obvious. We’ve become The Land of The EBT Card and The Home of Type II Diabetes, to the point where a large minority of the population wouldn’t mind seeing the colors struck, the bald eagle grounded and Old Glory given a decent burial in the backyard somewhere near where they interred the beloved family dog. Reuters describes the sentiment below.


Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.

Succession will not succeed. There will be no glorious military uprising against the Tyranny of The Diversity Matrons and The Gods of the Copybook Headings. Even what Salmond attempted in Scotland will not change the mundane modern tragedy that he who polishes the doorknob most carefully becomes the ruler of the Queen’s Navy. If you keep the normalizing, soul-sucking, bureaucratic culture of defeat, going to Texas will just leave you suffering spiritual decrepitude in a hotter and dryer version of the same moral dessert.

It all comes down to this: there are two ways we can fundamentally organize America. Brett Stevens describes them below.

• Managerial. In this, people share no values except wanting to make money and not get murdered. As a result, a strong government is needed to impose values through penalties, bribes, and propagandistic education starting at a young age.
• Organic. In this civilization-type, society is organized around shared values, beliefs, customs, language, heritage and tradition. There is less of a need for police and no need for propaganda; the culture is inherent to and arising from the people.


Only through the idiotic incompetence of The Obama Administration have we been saved from what Orwell warned us about. The current Justice Department under Eric Holder would be our Handicapper General if they were not already mentally handicapped. We have an entire ideology, Progressivism, more or less represented by the Democratic Party; engaged in a long war to destroy our nation as a sacred, unifying entity.

We have the history and the potential of a great shared heritage. It was taught to me at an early age. I learned to love the flag, I loved my town. I want my children to do the same. We should hand that tradition down; not stamp it out. In the words of Aragorn II Elessar on his deathbed. “I give back the gift.”

That should become the organizing mission of the Republican Party. Not just to win back the Senate and The Presidency; but instead to win back something of great and incalculable value – America!. If we want our society to be America, not Generica, Progressivism must be destroyed. If we want the freedom to be the individuals God made us, not a smeared-over part of some Central Scrutinizer’s Homogenous Diversity, Progressivism must be destroyed. If we want a nation to be proud of, not some secessionist freak-state, Progressivism must be destroyed. The Post-modern Progressive is the Post-modern Carthaginian; sacrificing your humanity; your very soul, to the Ba’als of fake tolerance and brutally enforced equality. Delenda est Cartago! That can only happen through nationalism; not succession. To serve decency, the GOP must be The Party of The American Nationalist.
