Vanishing American has a new post which addresses Dr Michael Hill’s article ‘Our Survival as a People,’ the attacks against him by anti-Southern groups and, most importantly, the desire on the part of many in Southern circles to find non-White advocates to speak on our behalf – a subject Dr Hill brings up in his article. VA writes:
My main problem with some of the Southern heritage organizations and the neo-Confederate groups is the ‘rainbow Confederacy’ mythos, the need to constantly cite the ‘diversity’ of the South, and our ‘welcoming’ nature, our lack of bias and ‘hate.’ I receive mailings from these groups and I am discouraged at seeing this trend grow.
Did any of our Southron ancestors rely on this approach? I know of none who did, at least among the truly great ones. Do ‘changing times’ require that we bow at the ‘diverse and inclusive’ altar? Personally I don’t think so. Truth does not change, though circumstances do.
It’s time, I think, to completely cast off the shackles of PC. More than anything else, this monster called ‘Political Correctness’, and its strictures put on our free expression, are what is leading to our dispossession and destruction. The strategy of trying to be all things to all people, not to offend, to be ‘fair-minded’ and inclusive, is leading us down a blind alley. That’s how we got to where we are today. We have to correct, and maybe over-correct for that tendency.
This is an important point raised by VA. Can you imagine any other cultural/national group on this planet behaving in such a cowardly manner? Can you imagine Japanese patriots finding African and European spokesmen for their cause? Can you imagine Egyptian patriots finding Asian and Hispanic spokesmen for them? Does the NAACP constantly insist that they are not racist and trot out non-Black spokesmen in a never-ending attempt to prove their anti-racist credentials? Does La Raza try to find White people to speak on their behalf while they insist that there is really nothing racial about them? To answer my own question: no. Only we behave like this; everyone else has the good sense not to do so.
The cowardice we see in certain quarters (certainly not all) of today’s Southern movement is a new phenomenon. When the South was strong – back before our flags and statues were taken down, before our schools were taken over, before our neighbourhoods were destroyed, back when our local and State governments were ran by defiant Southern men – there was none of what we see in PC Confederate circles today. Southerners did not go around constantly citing the alleged hundreds of thousands of Mexicans, Arabs, Eskimos and Zulus who fought for Dixie. They did not hide behind non-White spokesmen for our people; they did their own speaking for our people and it was not apologetic and pathetic. They did not go around trying to prove how anti-racist they were, running scared from the insults of anti-White groups; they were clear about the fact that they represented our own people first and foremost.
If the South is ever to be strong again – in fact, if we are survive as a people in today’s hostile environment – we will have to completely discard this PC nonsense. We are not a propositional society. That is neither what the South is about nor what we wish to become. Cowardice does not suit us well. We look foolish behaving in such a manner. It’s time to drop the act. It’s time to speak and act for ourselves.
