American Cultural Heritage
There is a consorted effort to disprivilege and hide our American cultural heritage. Now, before we get into this, I must define what I mean by American as too many people equate American with the zogslop mystery meats and the current “kingdom of darkness.” American in this context refers to the racial groups who settled the New World before the Civil War and underwent ethnogenesis in their conquest of the frontier. If you can trace your bloodline to being in the New World before the Civil War, I consider you American. Inevitability, I get many “what if” questions concerning whether or not a particular person is American even though the definition above is quite clear. There are more hardliners on who is American than I, some demand that you trace both your fathers and mothers line to the Revolutionary War, for example. I’m not that extreme, but I have disqualifiers.
If you use a hyphenation, you are not American. You either buy into the American race or you go groveling to the other part of your hyphenation which you identify with anyway. What about the blacks? What about the Italians and the Irish? If they break the rule above, they aren’t American. Now Oswald Spengler claimed that ancient tribes would take a man into their ranks if he was not of their blood if he was a “man of race.” This is an “out” I give to men of race who want to be American, but at that moment, the man of race becomes American and nothing else. He leaves whatever ancestral history he has to be American. Maybe there should be some type of ritual involved to appease the War God?
That is a discussion for another time, let us get into American cultural heritage. The hater will immediately want to talk about McDonalds, war mobilization for oil in third world countries, leftism, and the rampant obesity as “American cultural heritage.” What he is referring to is the now, which of course is not heritage. All of those things are true. All of those things are the result of American imperialism, but you must listen to Jonathan Bowden when he rightfully says that Americans aren’t in control of what their leaders are doing in the same way that Europeans aren’t. The elite have gone global. No, Americans have a proud cultural heritage and tradition that must be preserved at all costs.
Remnants of this cultural heritage still exist. It’s not that I speak to some long-gone time. It’s still there in the blood. American attachment to the 2nd Amendment is one such part of our heritage. To settle the new world was to be forced back into nature and to survive, you had to be able to fight off Indian raids or hunt for food. Most Americans don’t have to do this today, but the importance of it has been imparted in the blood. Leftists try to make “humanitarian” arguments about how civilians don’t need “weapons of war,” when the 2nd Amendment clearly states that it’s for the protection of American sovereignty against tyrannical governments foreign or domestic.
Now if you remove the American too far from this cultural heritage, you can manipulate him as the left does. Many Americans have been psychologically conditioned to hate their heritage, to be ashamed of it. There is certainly a trait present in Westerners that if bent the wrong way, causes the people to head toward racial suicide. This happens when our enemies sever the Thread of Continuity between the American and his parents and ancestors which is why the recent attack against parental rights is taking place. Leftists want to “break eggs” as they call it. It’s how they increase their ranks since most of them are not going to reproduce. It’s your duty to prevent this from taking place, to instill in your children that while you may have a teacher for a year or so, you will be there for them until the day you die.
Friedrich Nietzsche in his Thus Spake Zarathustra talked about the collective purpose of different peoples. The Grek cared foremost about being the best; the Persians to speak truth and be skillful with the bow; the Jews to honor father and mother, and to do their will; and the Germans to have fidelity, even at the risk of honor and blood. Modern scientists would have you believe that people are mostly the same, genetically, and they all endorse liberal ideals. It’s easy to tell an African from a German. You don’t need scientists for this. These peoples found a way to survive in nature through the sharing of a collective purpose. Nietzsche didn’t tell us what it meant to be American, but our ancestors DID have such a collective purpose.
The American Cultural Heritage
What did it mean to be American? What did Americans look for in their children? What was their collective purpose? What set them apart from the English, the German, and the other European races? I talked briefly about who is American in the beginning, partly to clear up confusion between who is Founding Stock and who isn’t and also to zero in on the types of people who settled the New World. These peoples were forced back into nature and made to tame the wilderness. On the frontier, I believe they discovered the Golden Path of God and became something else.
Four distinct groups settled the New World and built the foundation for their descendants and their prosperity. The Puritans, Quakers, Anglicans, and backcountry Scots-Irish. The Founding Stock today have some combination of those four groups in their makeup and maybe more. It’s important to know who you are and where you come from. These four groups were separated by where they migrated from, as well as, their distinct flavor of Protestant Christianity. All four groups have played a part in the makeup of the Founding Stock. Their ideas influence what it means to be an American today.
From the Puritans, we get the idea that you can pick yourself up by your bootstraps. They were known for their extreme work ethic and discipline. The ranks of the Puritans were primarily middle-class families. They were also known for their fanaticism for their faith. They believed every man, woman, and child should be literate so they could study the Bible. It took this kind of ethic to build a civilization from scratch in the new world.
The Anglicans of Virginia played a big part in the early days of the United States. They held a neo-Patrician and aristocratic mindset. The head of a household was considered the Father of all under his care, beyond just his family. This included slaves and homeless who walked in off the street. Their way of living mostly became disprivileged after the War Between the States. The idea of being a Fatheru, however, I believe is vital to dealing with our hostile regime. Men must take responsibility for the country in which they reside.
The Scots-Irish brought to the new world the spirit of martial mountain peoples. Their Protestantism can be seen as a form of Warrior Christianity as you can find them praying to God not just for forgiveness, but vengeance against their enemies. They were disliked by the Anglicans who pushed them out to the backcountry to use as a cushion against the savage Indian-infested frontier. Many frontiersmen come from this stock and much of our infantry also can lay claim to Scots-Irish ancestry. They held blood feuds and fought off the red man. Their loyalties were to clans. Their nomadic spirit got them all the way to California.
The Quakers didn’t seem to get much power in America. Only 1-2 Presidents were considered Quaker stock and it's not even certain if they were practicing Quakers, but culturally, you can argue the Quakers won out. The Quakers disliked hierarchy, believed hard in equality, and the idea that every man had to discover God for themselves. Their ideas sound very much like leftism today.
What does it mean to be American?
The American belongs to a race. This angers Europeans who think because they’re only a couple hundred years separated, they’re basically the same, but you can tell the two apart if they were standing side by side. What was important to the first Americans was freedom and justice, not equality. We didn’t start hearing about equality until the various civil rights movements of the 1900s. Our ancestors had always governed themselves, the result of the British Empire taking a hands-off approach with the plantations. The moment they tried to change course was the moment our ancestors responded by declaring Independence.
In the wilderness of the new world, our ancestors understood that if you weren’t armed, you would make yourself victim to whatever God threw at them. Guns kept the Indians at bay and they helped to defeat the British Empire. The importance of being armed was codified into our constitution, though they should have gone a step further and made it a religious rite. To be sovereign required a man to possess weapons of war and a well-provisioned brotherhood at his side. The first Americans understood that the brotherhood of armed men was the franchise. It was the foundation of a people which is why only they gained the right to vote in the republic.
We are a people changed by the frontier. Even now, where the frontier is “closed,” Americans have this yearning for the wilderness that the slaves cannot understand. How many articles or commentary do we hear about the hiking trails being plagued by “Whiteness” or blacks trying to figure out why Americans enjoy climbing mountains? Our blood tasted the power and vitality of the frontier. It brought Americans almost unbelievable providence. It helped make America the new world empire. Say what you will about what America has become, it’s foundation was made by the Founding Stock who had very different ideas about the world and nature.
Manifest Destiny inspired the American to go from sea to shining sea in a century. Our people had our sights set on the stars before we were dragged back into the dirt by our enemies and betrayers. But it’s not within their power to hold back American Manifest Destiny forever. Our people were meant to take mankind to the stars and this will be realized. The betrayal of blood will ignite a Holy War that spreads like an unquenchable fire.
