whiteness, with pyrotechnics
November 18, 2008
The other night I saw AC/DC at the Verizon Center in
Washington, D.C. For those out of the know, AC/DC is an aging Australian
hard rock band (founded 1973) famous for thundering, simple-themed songs that
revolve around alcohol, women, and rock. Its guitarist, a pale, slight
Scotsman named Angus Young, is known for performing while wearing a British
schoolboy uniform (jacket, tie and shorts) which he sheds (except for the
shorts) mid-concert and duck-walks the length of the stage with sweat and
Of the thousands of human beings packed into the arena, I did
not see a single non-white face. They may have been there, but in numbers
that can only be described as statistically insignificant. They were
working-class class whites, for the most part, spanning a range of ages, with
the occasional obvious yuppie-with-a-black-T-shirt-for-the-occasion thrown
The swarms of whites did not go unnoticed by the smaller crowds
of blacks orbiting the Verizon Center that night. They seemed slightly
alarmed by the rugged whites, many of whom sported Celtic cross tattoos,
Germanic cross T-shirts, and other signs of what psychologist Kevin MacDonald calls
whiteness." Some taunts were thrown in our direction
by a group of black girls, and one black man was prompted, for reasons
I could not discern, to bellow "suck my d***. Suck my big black d***" for
all to hear.
The only blacks who interacted with whites were ticket
scalpers, whose activities were ignored by the all-black police force on the
Inside, the concert was an electrifying
spectacle of deafening anthemic rock that
drove the crowd nuts. Smoke, lights, a giant inflatable "Rosie"
(you had to be there) and, for the finale song of "For Those About to
Rock, We Salute You," six full-sized battlefield canons were
wheeled onto the stage and blasted at the appropriate moment. Women wore
flashing devil horns, which went nicely with songs like "Hell's
Bells" and "Highway to
I had a blast. But the pro-white
observer in me could not help but play field anthropologist at the same
time. Here I was, in the thick of thousands of whites, all communing, if
you will, around what was essentially a pagan convergence. The same folks
who heaped hatred on Sarah Palin could not have been much more comfortable with
this panorama: a sea of white males all thrusting their fists
in the air and yelling "oi!", and the occasional buxom white woman
— probably a non-feminist — gyrating with glee.
I am sure that conservative Christian whites would not have
approved of much of it. But if we as whites are looking for what works, we
should not overlook the "Viking" whites as an element of healthy,
vigorous white life. They like the beer, the fighting and the sex.
Properly directed, this is what a race on the survival track does.
In considering it further, I decided that the real
function of AC/DC's music is to whip up whites for war and male fertility.
Again, these aren't bad things for a race declining in numbers and influence
across the Western world. And it all operates free from the scrutiny of
the SPLC and other "hate hunters", because it's just too attenuated from
anything explicitly pro-white (this explains why the criticism of "Lord of the Rings"
as "racist" wasn't taken seriously by anyone — though it was
I have heard that at shows by another hard
rock band, Pantera (with which I'm totally
unfamiliar, except to know that they are not a skinhead or "white power" band),
the implicit slips into explicit with occasional yelps of "white
power"! Good. The more of this, the
There is a wonderful mystery to the dark forests of our
European ancestors — the sprites, the
gnomes, the elves, the swords, the axes, the knights, the maidens, the witches
and warlocks, the war-party bonfires. It's a bottomless lake for the white
imagination, and I am sure that an experience like an AC/DC show taps into
Whatever is going on, whites show up, in large numbers, ready
to rock. That's about all we need, if you think about it.
