There are some people who complain regularly about Multiculturalism, and about perceived threats to White Anglophone American Culture. But, what is this "culture" all about, and what "threatens" it?
Is White Anglophone American Culture all about going to church on Sunday, eating hotdogs and hamburgers, drinking soda pop, watching sports on TV, listening to what passes for "music", having a mortgage on a big, over-priced house, car payments, a wife, 2.3 kids, and then hoping to save enough money to die in a reasonably comfortable nursing home? Does this culture entail spending every Saturday in a shopping mall where one buys, on credit, useless garbage that will end up being discarded within a year due to its being "out of style?" Over-medicating oneself with prescription drugs and anti-depressants because one's life has no meaning and no real joy?
Is there anything more to White Anglophone American Culture than that? And, is there anything to it that is worth preserving?
Ram Z. Paul gives his definition of what an "American" is, one minute into this video:
...I consider an American to be like a nationality. A common bonds that bring us together. For example, I grew up. I think a lot of us have this experience. I was a kid, going to school. Understand about our history. The pilgrims. The expansion in the West. Like Daniel Boone. Cowboys and Indians. Just everything. Our shared music, television, our language, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Paul Bunyan tales, all that, is just, you know, shooting guns, it's America. This is what we were about. It's our heritage. And it binds us together...A "culture" is really nothing more than a collective fiction. Yes, people of my generation grew up watching Bozo Circus, Gilligan's Island, and Saturday-morning cartoons.
Mr. Paul and I know about Paul Bunyan from the cartoons,
about Daniel Boone from Fess Parker's portrayal in the old television series,
and about the cowboys and Indians from The Lone Ranger:
We also learned about shooting guns from those shows. Most of us didn't realize, though, that Tonto, the name of the Lone Ranger's sidekick, is the Spanish word for "fool." And, most of us didn't realize that we were being played for fools--being fed attenuated and highly-inaccurate versions of American history, for the sake of getting our attention long enough to sell us disgusting, over-sweetened, corporate-American breakfast cereals.
A later generation grew up watching Barney, and now all of the kids are tuned into the Disney channel. There isn't any reason why anyone younger than Mr. Paul would know anything about (or at least share his understanding of) Paul Bunyan, Daniel Boone, cowboys and Indians, nor the importance of shooting guns. Of course, in the public schools, children are still treated to the watered-down silly stories about how the Indians helped the Pilgrims so much that the Pilgrims invited the Indians to a Thanksgiving Day feast, with turkey and cranberry sauce, and everyone ate until his sides ached. So what? At some point, we have to grow up and put this silliness behind us. Or, does American culture entail remaining a child forever?
European cultures have some things that are worth maintaining, such as classical music: Mozart, Beethoven, and the other greats, kept alive by the likes of André Rieu:
But, our "shared" American music? It goes in an out of style so quickly that there isn't anything to preserve. "You're listening to that? That is so last Spring!"
And, Mr. Paul objects to immigration, because foreigners haven't been brainwashed with the same bullshit that we have. Mexicans and Canadians wouldn't have the same understanding of the Pilgrims, and might not buy the same breakfast cereals. I don't care. As far as I'm concerned, anyone who wants to migrate to this God-forsaken country might as well come here. Where other people choose to live isn't any of my business.
Behold Emma Lazarus' poem The New Colossus, which is engraved on our Statue of Liberty:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries sheA lot of us have ancestors who moved here with few belongings and very little wealth, quite a long time ago. Many of the early immigrants came to farm, while later immigrants tended to move into our cities and work in our factories. Some people whose ancestors had arrived earlier didn't like the people who came later, but most eventually got over it.
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
In other countries, people may have a shared culture and history that goes back thousands of years. In the USA, we pretty much don't have a culture and history, other than what the cereal-peddlers have defined for us.
Here is someone who likes to go on-and-on about what he regards as a Jewish threat to White people:
He concludes this video with:
...One day we shall prevail. The Zionist illusion of power over us will be broken, and we will be free. Our people will secure our own borders, we will live in the harmony of our heritage, and the Zionists will no longer be able to use us to control the other nations of the world. Finally, we will create our own media, and be rid of its pernicious alien influence over our very soul and spirit itself. We will be enriched by our own heritage. Nurtured by the best of us. And each generation will grow more beautiful, stronger, in the image of the best of us. And the future will be ours, and the universe will lay within the grasp of our traditions. The fight against foreign control of our European people around the world can only succeed if we free ourselves first from the Zionist globalists. That is the only path to freedom, and the only path to our survival as a people.How absolutely inspiring. Obviously, this fellow has a few screws loose. If you're worried about an "illusion" of Zionist power, then all that you have to do is stop thinking about it to break the illusion, and then you'll be free and disillusioned.
Based upon Mr. Paul's definition, being an American means that your culture is defined for you by cereal peddlers. According to Mr. Duke, these cereal peddlers are also evil Jews. Hence, American culture is merely an evil Jewish creation to begin with.
To be sure, the American news media do generally present a very pro-Israel bias. Even Fox News, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch (who is not Jewish), and which, as far as I know, doesn't even hire any Jews (plenty of Irish Catholics, and ditzy blondes whose legs are just shapely enough to keep the geezers in the nursing homes interested, but no Jews), is rabidly pro-Zionist.
Fox "News" goes so far as not only to label Jewish philanthropist George Soros a Nazi collaborator, but also to call President Obama a "Jew-hater" for suggesting that the Israeli military should maybe consider exercising a tad bit of restraint:
Quite a lot of hyperbole on Fox "News", if that's what you like. I don't watch television any more, but if you want a more-reasoned and minimally-biased news source, then I highly recommend Al Jazeera.
But, okay, let's say that we somehow get rid of the Jews, and replace all of their movies, TV shows and newspapers with Nazi or "White Nationalist" movies, TV shows, and newspapers. I don't watch television, nor do I read newspapers, although I do occasionally watch movies (usually foreign films). However, I do suspect that replacing Jewish media with "White Nationalist" media will not result in any real improvement. It will probably be even worse. Otherwise, the "White Nationalist" media would already be competing successfully against the Jewish media in the free market. As reported by Liel Liebowitz, even some of our beloved television Christmas specials, although produced by Gentiles, look Jewish and sound gay. The "White Nationalists" might as well not even try.
According to Mr. Duke, once we've disposed of the Jews, "we will be enriched by our own heritage" and "nurtured by the best of us." How in blazes is our "own heritage" going to "enrich" us? Who in blazes is "the best of us", and why in blazes would this person "nurture us?" Such arrant silliness.
Mr. Duke also purports a desire to get into the business of breeding a super-race of White people, that with "each generation will grow more beautiful, stronger, in the image of the best of us." All that we're ever really going to do is get fatter and uglier with each succeeding generation. Getting rid of the Jews isn't going to change that. Plus, Mr. Duke himself underwent plastic surgery to make himself less ugly. People could get prettier-and-prettier that way, rather than through selective breeding.
"The future will be ours, and the universe will lay within the grasp of our traditions." The universe? Maybe this chap has been watching too many Jewish Star Wars movies.
He wishes to "fight against foreign control of our European people around the world"--what an idiot.
"That is the only path to freedom...": seems more like a path to slavery and death, to me--the Germans tried it, and look at what happened to them..."...and the only path to our survival as a people." Bah. Mr. Duke very much fails to persuade me that there is anything at all worth salvaging about White Anglophone American Culture. It is all just a pile of rubbish, anyway. He is merely a disgusting charlatan, making money off of degenerate, simple-minded fools. Even if we did get rid of all of the Jews, and all of the darker-hued people, there would still be some people who felt envious of others. Maybe the blue-eyed people would chase away the brown-eyes.
As for Mr. Duke's claim to be a Christian: I would really like to know where he attends church, but make no mistake about it, Mr. Duke is a convicted felon, a fraud, and no Christian. He is a divorcé, and consequently bears responsibility for his wife's adultery. His divorced wife, Chloê, with whom he has two daughters, married Don Black, a similarly vile racist. In Matthew 5, Jesus says:
It hath been said, 'Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement': But I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.The Mosaic Law (Deuteronomy 24) gives Jews the right to divorce their wives. A Christian man possesses no such right, unless his wife cuckolds him. Mr. Duke's wife never cuckolded him, and Mr. Duke is completely at fault for her and Mr. Black's adultery.
From the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; and they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.Here is Mr. Duke having a go at Sigmund Freud and the "Sexual Revolution."
The father of the 'Sexual Revolution' in the Western World is Sigmund Freud. He said quote 'Sexual morality seems to me very contemptible.' No single man did more to destroy the family, nor more to degrade humanity, than did Sigmund Shlomo Freud. Was the 'Sexual Revolution' an accident? You'll find out the truth right now.And, does Mr. Duke himself live a godly, righteous, and sober life? Apparently not. Here is what Martin Lee wrote:
Wherever the 'Globalist Media' reaches on this planet there is an ongoing sexual revolution. It should be called 'Sexual Dehumanization.' In traditional Western culture, sex is idealized and embedded with the idea of family, children, and the deep and sacred respect for love between a man and a woman. And marriage as a beautiful, even holy institution. A perfect example of the veneration of womanhood, fidelity and purity, as expressed in countless artworks, is the Virgin Mary. The Madonna is also venerated in the Muslim Koran, which defends Mary from the Jewish Talmudic slander that claim Mary was a whore, and Jesus a bastard...
..."I idolized Duke when I was younger. I looked up to him," the Rev. Johnny Lee Clary, who served as Duke's bodyguard in the late 1970s but later became an anti-racist activist, said in an interview. "He would get up and wave the Bible around and talk about Christian values. But when I got to know him on a personal level, I saw what he was really like, and it disgusted me. ... I traveled alongside Duke and I watched him at work. I saw him take a Klansman's wife to his hotel room."Does Mr. Duke hold Mr. Freud personally accountable for his own degeneracy? Fornication, adultery, gambling and writing a sex manual for women? Or, is Mr. Duke simply the world's biggest hypocrite? According to fellow Klansman Jack Gregory:
Duke, then a married man with two children, pursued female sex partners so avidly and so openly that it embarrassed many of his closest colleagues. Metzger, then Duke's state leader in southern California, became livid when Duke showed up for a 1977 Klan anti-immigrant "border watch" stunt and immediately started hitting on women.
"We used to tell people, 'When Duke comes to town make sure your wife is safely locked up and don't let him near your daughters,'" Metzger recalled.
Duke did have his limits, however, generally confining himself to "Aryan" types. One legislative aide told John Maginnis, author of the Duke profile Cross to Bear, how she learned of Duke's amatory preferences during a bizarre date in Baton Rouge. The two were having lunch, she said, "when he started explaining to me that blond, blue-eyed Scandinavian-looking people were God's chosen people, that they were made in his image. He said that God didn't want to dilute this perfection, so we should only mate with others of our kind. He then asked me if I wanted to mate with him. It was the weirdest come-on line I've ever heard."
Duke would also develop a life-long weakness for gambling. Maginnis quotes a Las Vegas regular who once spotted Duke on a Mississippi gambling cruise boat. "There was David Duke," the man told Maginnis. "But he looked like Edwin [Edwards, the corrupt Louisiana governor who would later go to prison]. He had a babe on each arm and he was shooting craps and betting pretty heavy."
Duke tried to cash in on his alleged expertise beneath the sheets by writing Finders-Keepers, a sex manual for women ("You must love sex for its own sake," he wrote). Published in 1976 under a pseudonym, this tawdry guide advocated one-night stands, adultery, and anal and oral sex. A bestseller it was not, but the Knights' imperial wizard had other fundraising scams up his robed sleeve...
David Duke is nothing but a con artist. Our members were poring in money to the organization, and we never saw any of it. When I asked Duke where the money was going, I was thrown out of the Klan. Yeah, he tells everyone he doesn't make any money from the Klan--that he's doing it for the cause. But that's the biggest lie there is.Every Christian should be familiar with what Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 9:
...Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.I'm sure that Mr. Duke's supporters will quickly point out that Paul was a Jew, and that nothing that a Jew says has any validity, even if it is in the Bible. Nevertheless, here is what Paul writes in Galatians 3:
...ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.One cannot be both a Nazi (or "White Nationalist") and a Christian. The two are mutually exclusive. All are One in Christ, and if you are Christ's, then you are also of the seed of Abraham. No racism nor anti-Semitism allowed.
I haven't read a whole lot of Mr. Duke's material, but he strikes me prima facie as being highly intelligent, and extremely obsessive about Judaism. He may know more about Judaism than most Jews do. As previously mentioned, American politicians who express the most vehemence towards homosexuality usually turn out to be queers. Mr. Hugo Schwyzer, who built a career around telling men that they shouldn't pursue relationships with younger women, was banging his luscious young college students and "sexting" nubile young pornographic actresses. So, for what could Mr. Duke be compensating? A Jewish grandmother, perhaps? There was a movie called The Believer, about a Jewish man who developed a fiercely anti-Jewish philosophy, and who joined the Ku Klux Klan. How could Mr. Duke have come to know so much about Judaism, without having immersed himself in Jewish culture? Perhaps he was secretly circumcised? Mr. Duke had better come clean, and show us whether he still has his foreskin.
One would anticipate that someone with Mr. Duke's impressive qualifications would continue to attack Black Americans. On the contrary, he has been surprisingly soft on Blacks. Behold what he has to say concerning the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri:
...the whole Ferguson media hoopla is nothing but a most extreme incitement of racist hatred against European Americans. It is meant to demonize European Americans and direct African American anger toward Europeans rather than the real ultra-racist Jewish tribalists who are doing horrific harm to both African Americans and European Americans...
...Black crime rates both against whites and their own people have skyrocketed in the last few decades because of the degradation and degeneration of the Jewish controlled media that has soaked young people in violence, degeneracy, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, and other forms of behavior that have led to millions of lives lost or ruined in the United States and around the world...
The Jews were behind it, and Blacks are basically okay, or would be okay, if the Jews hadn't caused them to be violent and degenerate. Even Fox News was harder on Blacks than that. One would expect that the good people who donate their hard-earned income to support Mr. Duke's lifestyle would like Mr. Duke to demonize Black people, too. But, no--it is all about the Jews. Mr. Duke even went so far as to endorse the congressional campaign of a former Black Panther because of the candidate's anti-Zionism.
Most of Mr. Duke's counterparts in Europe are most upset about Islamic immigration. There aren't really enough Jews left in Europe to be able to blame them for much of anything any more. According to Robert Leiken:
Here is Pamela Geller's perspective:Radical Islam is spreading across Europe among descendants of Muslim immigrants. Disenfranchised and disillusioned by the failure of integration, some European Muslims have taken up jihad against the West. They are dangerous and committed -- and can enter the United States without a visa.
...Muslims are the first group to come as immigrants to the West determined to replace Western government and social structures with Islamic ones. Millions of Muslims come to Western countries with a ready-made model of society and government (sharia) which they believe to be superior to what we have here, and they work to institute it...Mr. Duke, on the other hand, has nothing but nice things to say about Islam and Muslims, which makes his credibility as a "White Nationalist" rather questionable. During 2006, Mr. Duke spoke at a Holocaust Conference in Teheran:
...as Muslim populations grow, so do demands for special accommodation to Sharia. When Muslims number less than two percent of the population, as they do in the U.S. now, they’re generally peaceful and tolerant....
...As the Muslim population grows, so does violent intimidation and lawlessness--an example being the Sharia-ruled areas all over Europe, where the governing authorities have essentially lost control. After Muslim populations reach 20%, we see rioting, jihad militias, church burnings, and worse--and once it reaches 40%, there are massacres and frequent jihad terror attacks, as we have seen in recent years in Bosnia, Chad, and Lebanon.
Beyond that, when Muslims are the majority, there is Sharia-based discrimination against and persecution of non-Muslims, and sometimes even genocide of non-Muslims, as we have seen in Bangladesh and elsewhere, which may be coming in Egypt and Syria today. And we regularly see the poison fruit of importing whole Muslim communities into the West: al Qaeda “refugees” handling heavy weapons and living on welfare in Kentucky; a Muslim in Canada beheading his four sons; Muslims living in the U.S. waging jihad elsewhere; and so much more...
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's conference questioning the Holocaust came to an end Tuesday, but not before hearing former KKK Imperial Wizard David Duke say that gas chambers were not used to kill Jews.Some of the material on Mr. Duke's website appears to be so slickly pro-Iran and anti-Israel that it seems likely to have been created for him by an Iranian agency. For example:
"The Zionists have used the Holocaust as a weapon to deny the rights of the Palestinians and cover up the crimes of Israel," Duke told a gathering of nearly 70 "researchers" in Tehran at Ahmadinejad's invitation.
"This conference has an incredible impact on Holocaust studies all over the world," said Duke, a former state representative in Louisiana who twice ran for president.
"The Holocaust is the device used as the pillar of Zionist imperialism, Zionist aggression, Zionist terror and Zionist murder," Duke told The Associated Press...

Presumably, a good "White Nationalist" would hate Black Americans and dark-hued Iranian Muslims, at least a smidgen. But, no--nothing but contempt for the Zionists, and what seems to be nearly sychophantic idolatry for the Iranian mullahs. Which suggests to me that the Iranian government (or some other Middle-Eastern Islamic entity) may be Mr. Duke's paymaster. I don't see how Mr. Duke can maintain his jet-setting lifestyle, and could have accumulated his fine wardrobe, merely from selling books and beseeching donations. Especially now that he has gone soft on Blacks and soft on Islam. It wouldn't surprise me if Mr. Duke turned out to be an Iranian agent.
