Lincoln’s Rhetoric on the Struggle Between Good and Evil: Relevance to the Present

In writing a chapter on Puritanism for my projected book on the Western liberal tradition, I came across a fascinating portrait of Lincoln by conservative intellectual M. E. Bradford — a portrait that is quite pertinent to the current political climate. Bradford, incidentally, was an early victim of the neocon takeover of the conservative movement during the Reagan Administration. Bradford was a prominent candidate for the director of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The battle, which Bradford lost,”pits so-called new conservatives [neocons] against more fundamentalist conservatives [paleocons].” The neocons were particularly energized by Bradford’s views on Lincoln.

As noted in TOO several times (e.g., here), a consistent strand of American political thought deriving originally from the Puritan strand of American culture (and exploited by Jewish intellectual movements for their own purposes, as noted in The Culture of Critique) is to cast political opposition in moral terms.

This is particularly noticeable on the left. The Kavanaugh circus and pretty much everything about Trump beginning with his candidacy in 2016 are good examples. As the politics of the country become ever more polarized by race and gender, these moral posturings are increasingly phrased as condemnations of White people as evil. This recent New York Times op-ed is a good example:

After a confirmation process where women all but slit their wrists, letting their stories of sexual trauma run like rivers of blood through the Capitol, the Senate still voted to confirm Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. …

These women are gender traitors, to borrow a term from the dystopian TV series “The Handmaid’s Tale.” They’ve made standing by the patriarchy a full-time job. The women who support them show up at the Capitol wearing “Women for Kavanaugh” T-shirts, but also probably tell their daughters to put on less revealing clothes when they go out. …

We’re talking about white women. The same 53 percent who put their racial privilege ahead of their second-class gender status in 2016 by voting to uphold a system that values only their whiteness, just as they have for decades. 

This moralistic tradition in American politics has a long history. Lincoln was of New England stock and is a good example of millenarian spirit that pervaded nineteenth-century American thought. Bradford emphasizes this aspect of Lincoln’s thought, describing Lincoln’s view as essentially “secular Puritanism” that “must replace Church with State”[1]  while retaining the moralistic, redemptive overtones. In the end, force, apocalyptic force should be used: this utopian future must be achieved as a result of the victory of the forces of good over the forces of evil. And against the forces of evil, there can be no accommodation, no compromise.

Such rhetoric obviously presages civil war. Here’s Bradford on Lincoln rejecting compromise in his Peoria speech of October 16, 1854:

For the great difficulty with Lincoln’s Peoria presentation is that it finally refuses accommodation, the sacrosanct principle of Clay and of the Founders, and in its place threatens apocalypse if the alternate principle of exclusion is not applied to all Western territories of the Republic [i.e., that slavery could be excluded from new states by federal mandate as opposed to popular attitudes, as required by the Missouri Compromise of 1820 but repealed by the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854]. To accept the notion of that there is any policy superior to these alternatives is called both “monstrous” and “worthy of hate.” We are now returned to the false dilemma. Ordinary persuasion is forsworn. A new political religion is implied. And though Lincoln still pretends civility and claims not “to question the patriotism or to assail the motives of any man, or class of men,” we are well on our way to a full-fledged Puritan rhetoric of perpetual war against the “powers of darkness”: “to universal armed camps, engaged in a death struggle against each other.”[2]

Ultimately, it is a moral struggle, as Lincoln stated in his 1858 debate with Stephen Douglas:

It is the eternal struggle between these two principles—right and wrong—throughout the world. They are two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time; and will ever continue to struggle.[3]

The current political climate is more and more being conceived on the left as a struggle between good and evil in which their enemies are, in Lincoln’s words, “monstrous” and “worthy of hate.”It is a polarization that “refuses accommodation” and “threatens apocalypse.” There can be no compromise with evil. In such a situation, anything is justified, including, in Lincoln’s case, a civil war that resulted in 700,000 dead White men.

We are now seeing prominent public figures justify behavior that until quite recently would have been considered beyond the boundaries of acceptable political behavior. For example, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), a leader in the battle against Kavanaugh, refuses to condemn public harassment of senators opposing the confirmation. Such harassment of Republican senators and other public officials connected to President Trump has been going on for months. We have already seen numerous examples of cooperation between city and state officials in condoning and facilitating violence by the antifa. It’s a short step from that to refusing to condemn assassination attempts on public figures.

And a short step from that to Civil War II.

    The frustration of the left is on full display in the op-ed about women immorally benefiting from “patriarchy” i.e. natural male dominance; as though women were a subspecies unto themselves and could separate from males and war against them. These women often have sons and they carry their genes. It is in the genetic interests of women that their sons thrive and propagate. That is insured by a system where males choose not to opt out marriage and monogamy. They also have husbands who are providers of resources. “Gender” interests are naturally subordinate to genetic interests. The true traitors are White race traitors who willingly internalize subversive Jewish propaganda i.e. feminism, which propaganda has as its intention the weakening and rendering supine the White host society.

    As far as another civil war goes the Right potentially has the largest cohort of armed males in America. And as Napoleon said: “God is on the side of the big battalions”.

    There exists a copious literature on the role of the news media in the years before the Civil War (or ‘War Between the States’ as some contend) which distinctly shows the outrageously provocative journalism which promoted such a conflict (e.g., ). Southern editors were completely incendiary (See ).

    Lincoln often has been vilified ( Cf., ), even by fake and misleading ‘conservatives’ like Thomas DiLorenzo ( ). DiLorenzo’s slop is written less adequately than a sophomore’s night-before-it’s-due term paper— loaded with unnecessarily bountiful footnotes. Lincoln shares with the Bible and Shakespeare the distinction of being completely misunderstood and completely misquoted from their contexts.

    Sen. Crazy Mazie Hirono with Sen. Spartacus join Senatoress Pocahontas in demeaning White males the same way antebellum editors demeaned their opponents; civility and veracity were the first victims. Current demented politicians urge their equally demented loony followers to take to the streets just like the editors urged their antebellum readers. But these cheap politicos will never be in the front lines of the actual fighting just as editors remained at home writing plentiful propaganda to keep the conflict going while their readers were needlessly slaughtered in the killing fields.

    Then, like today, the enemies of the Republic were excused with near reverence. Jew David Black wrote a lengthy biography of uber-Jew August Belmont, known shill in Jew York for the Rothschilds ( ‘The King of Fifth Avenue,’ 1981). Belmont arrived in America in May 1837 while en route to Cuba, but then decided to remain in Jerusalem-on-the-Hudson after notifying the Rothschilds ( ). He married the daughter of the famed Commodore Perry (Japan incident) and niece of Louisiana hyper-secessionist Sen. John Slidell. By 1860 Belmont was chairman of the Democratic Party thanks to the power and influence of Lincoln nemesis Stephen A. Douglas, two-faced, babbling fence-sitter par excellence!

    After Lincoln’s re-election in 1864 stories circulated that Belmont’s servant(s) overheard a conspiracy by Belmont with others to assassinate Lincoln. Black concocts fiction about “the stranglehold on Washington by Republicans” (p. 266)! With traditional Yiddish treachery Black soothes the potential murder with traditional Jewish apologia: “So if Belmont was party to a conspiracy, his motives- although hard to understand with hindsight- would have been patriotic” (ibid). Murder of Lincoln, like the murder of Palestinians, is always patriotic.

    Neither tarot cards nor mystics nor crystal balls nor angelic visits have bestowed any special prophetic powers or insights into the future upon me. I do not know if there will be a Civil War II, but I do know from experience and world history, we should expect the snake to swiggle and slither with screeches of agony as Americans endeavor to retake their Republic from humanity’s eternal enemies.

    Politics should be cast in moral terms. It always will be anyway. The problem with the left is not that they cast politics in moral terms, but that they’re simply wrong, that’s all. Conversely, we White Nationalists believe in racial self-interest and self-preservation because it is right. Indeed, it is a moral imperative if there ever was one. Politics has never been anything if it has not been merely an extension of moral values. To the oft-repeated quip, “You cannot legislate morality,” Robert Bork once replied, “We legislate little else.”

    It is disappointing to see one such as Dr. MacDonald pursue his own culture of critique toward this great tribe of courageous, dedicated, and hard-working White Anglo-Saxon Protestants who accomplished so much on this continent, including the founding principles of the country they themselves built. It would seem the Puritans have now become for Dr. MacDonald the principle villains in the anti-White march of the left, while the Jewish influence is relegated to a parenthetical aside.

    I was intrigued by Bradford’s quote describing Lincoln, “we are well on our way to a full-fledged Puritan rhetoric of perpetual war against the ‘powers of darkness.'” Define “powers of darkness” as those that seek to destroy the White race, and I can only say of the quote, “would that we were.” Indeed, it is not even the rhetoric we lack but the war (so far it’s just been a slaughter). And if “perpetual war” bothers us, I suggest we’ve already lost, for if the price of freedom is eternal vigilance, then, considering the virulence and determination of our enemies, so surely is racial survival. White Europeans need to start feeling about their race what the Puritans felt about their religion. They need to emulate the example of the Puritans, not avoid it. They might switch out the object of such dedication, but they could badly use the manner of it.

    For some enemies, there is no compromise or accommodation, nor, for that matter, is there any way to describe them accurately with weasel words. For those energized by their hatred of Whites and their desire for our extinction, the only compromise acceptable to them would be for Whites to acquiesce in their own destruction. What bothers some of us about Lincoln is not that he was too passionate or even possessed of a millenarian spirit, but that his idea, at least for that time in American history and based on the constitution upon which the republic had been founded, was wrong and ended up being pursued at a horrendous cost. It is worth noting, however, that in more general terms, his idea was actually admirable, that is, maintaining the political unity of a great population of White men. Another passionate leader with a millenarian spirit and a tendency (to say the least) to view the political opposition in moral terms, Adolf Hitler, admired Lincoln for precisely that reason.

    As for eschewing terms like “monstrous,” the enemies of the White race are monstrous, and there is nothing wrong or inaccurate in referring to them or their program of White genocide as such. That the left employs such terms too does not make their use per se invalid. So the devil can quote scripture. What else is new?

    Neither is the left wrong to conceive that the “current political climate is more and more […] a struggle between good and evil.” What they’re wrong about is which side they think they’re on.

      Wouldn’t that be awesome? Making America Great Again by kicking out any immigrant that is currently using taxpayer funded benefits? I wouldn’t mind keeping those that are working and contributing. Then shutting off the spigot.
      But then again, we are almost 2 years in and no wall, no repeal of Hart/Cellar, a massive influx of illegal people and drugs. We have the House, the Senate and the Presidency and they won’t even change some of the more egregious immigration laws. That tells me who is really in charge. Kushner and Rosenstein, etc. etc. Is he going to make a big move after the mid terms? Or is he just going to keep floating trial balloons about what he “might” do. My hope is that the right people will read “Culture of Critique” and we can wake up enough people to really Make America Great Again.

    The history of the Lincoln Cult fostered after the War Between the States is an excellent study in propaganda masquerading as education.

    Lincoln was a something of a dictator, cloaked in an everyman persona. How he became “the greatest President” and “the gold standard for the office” (even in the South!), and more importantly, *why* this programming was considered desirable, is an understudied example of how the American people have been sheep-herded for so long.

    Abraham Lincoln’s Letter to Horace Greeley:
    The sooner the national authority can be restored; the nearer the Union will be “the Union as it was.” If there be those who would not save the Union, unless they could at the same time save slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save the Union unless they could at the same time destroy slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors; and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views.

    I have here stated my purpose according to my view of official duty; and I intend no modification of my oft-expressed personal wish that all men every where could be free.

    Yours, A. Lincoln.

    I curse the day that the Jewish Booth was born. Lincoln had fully intended and had put in to place a program for returning the Negros to the jungles where they had sprung from. Had he accomplished that goal, the WASPS could have been defeated, the Jews deported and White Europeans could have formed a nation like no other on Earth.

    BTW – Looking for advice on what I can do about a Modern Day Jewish Slaver I’ve come across associated with my line of business. It’s a farm in Jefferson County MO. I won’t name any names at this point. It’s basically a Jew running a Hog and Herb farm in Jefferson County. His father is a powerful Jew politician also in the County. The farm is part of the family’s holdings and was given to the son. The Jewson runs the farm with labor that he keeps enslaved by keeping the workers, runaways, drug addicts….. strung out on drugs and alcohol. None of the workers is paid. They’re given Manson family type quarters to live in and are paid with their room and board and a hog at the end of the season. The State of Missouri said that slavery is not illegal as long as the people are there willingly (and the Plantation owner is Jewish (God’s chosen slavers)). Any ideas on how to expose this Jewish menace from the Tribe of Eternal Evil?

      01 Read all you can on the net about AGRIPROCESSORS, run by Sholom Rubashkin and sons, KOSHER meatpackers serving, almost monopolistically the entire US and Israel.

      His employment of illegals, children among them, their lack of remuneration through ” free” slum accommodation, credit at the local ” Company Store “, their sexual abuse and much else partly mirrors the situation you describe, but was on a gigantic scale.

      Paid invoices were presented to the banks as yet unpaid, ie as future revenues collateral, to secure loans in the millions: of course defaulted on.

      At the time in question, a photo appeared, depicting bearded, Orthodox Rubashkin being feted by his ilk on his front porch in Queens, after indictments. There were no captions disclosing their likely wet-dream Talmudic discussions about having once again stuck it to the goyim in all possible, recommended or at least faith-permitted spheres.

      02 Then read up on defamation and libel law in a book aimed at the layman. After an even precursory familiarization, reach for a slightly more precise book. Even a Gopher Junction library can request the same from within their larger system: perhaps your local University library will lend them to you for a small ” outside lender fee “; as the Law Library at Western Ontario University did with me.

      03 Generally a] a lack of malice; and b] establishment of fact; and c] a public interest purpose, protect you; while b] takes center stage and c] is a reputational consideration for your industry as well as a wider one for the community: in addition to reams of federal legislation.

      04 Then avail yourself of one of those famous pro bono half hour advice sessions with a pre-chosen lawyer, keeping in mind, that it is designed to garner your business and will be brim full with guarantees of success.

      Approach him as if you were abjectly uninformed, to weigh his advice against what you have already learned.

      05 I can’t imagine, that the average stalwart, earthbound Missouri farmer would acquiesce such a blemish on their profession and community.

      Years ago, a week before municipal elections, I caught our local, already compromised Chief of Police red-handed on more than one new issue: he was about to be reappointed by Township Council, previously informed by me, yet again.

      I printed 500 flyers and put them under as many wind-shield wipers in our larger town’s mall, as well as in his town and our local papers.. My more than candid reasons made up for the flyer’s essential, one short-page brevity. I stated, inter alia, verbatim, ” that he must have a cruiser trunk load of collected, compromising material on Council members, to be up for repeated reelections, and THEREFORE NOT TO VOTE FOR ANY INCUMBENT ON COUNCIL “.

      No applause please ! He was already the only Chief of Police on this planet, who was prohibited from carrying his service revolver and even long flashlight, due to domestic violence, for which he must have been indicted, but not found sufficiently guilty, beyond the imposed restrictions. Perhaps these restrictions were an ACCOMMODATION BETWEEN HIM AND COUNCIL.

      06 If orders were issued to his boys to harass me on the road, they never materialized. Perhaps they were privately grateful for partly reviving their own standing in the community.

    They think they are clever like a Jew when they get away with getting free money for doing essentially nothing of value.

    retards with free money who get the (((analogue media))) piped free of charge bundled in with the subsidized rent and,
    the aging White masses who have been bypassed by the information age,
    are the last ones left who still listen to the lies.

    Be it subscribers or followers, sane White people no longer pay attention to (((their))) lies.

    All these fake recipients of White tax payer largess have a vested interest in allowing themselves to be trained by the usurious Jew.
    The usurious Jew Trainers in Violent Destruction HAVE BRED THIS COHORT OF VIOLENT SYSTEM PLAYING RETARDS for a reason.

    (((They))) KNOW that mindless violence is about the only thing that gives the Retards the feeling of being alive.
    The Jews first frighten the Retards into thinking the WHITE Tax Payers want to take their addictive lifestyles away from them and throw them to the wolves,
    then train the Retards to fight Middle Class Reason with senseless violence.

    The Jew must be taken out of the equation because the Jew is pushing the narrative off a cliff on purpose.
    After the Jew is gone, Whites can calmly find a way to give the Retards a more meaningful and less dependent alternative to their present Jew induced addictive lifestyles.

    The Retards must be reassured that Aryans are not out to hurt them, but only wish to give them a sense of accomplishment and pride that everyone deserves.

    However, as long as the usurious Jew stands between Whites and Retards, the lines of communication will be skewed and the outcome will be chaos.

    Another interesting article by Professor MacDonald. Very interesting that Lincoln had such an attitude. For my whole life I’ve felt that Jews lecture the rest of the world on what is moral and what is not and only in the last ten or fifteen years learned what phony, immoral hypocrites they are. I believe Jews took the attitude “there can be no compromise with evil. In such a situation, anything is justified.” in order to drive the world into WW II because without that war, and the rise of nationalism in Europe, Jews would have much less power in the world today. Indeed, I wonder if they would have a fraction of their current power. Forget the Jews idiotic tales of them being “exterminated”. Without the war, they would be sidelined to a degree and people would dislike them, as you should feel towards anyone that hates you. That would minimize their power, as it had in the past.

    Another person whose family was largely of New England stock (particularly on her father’s side) was that of Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack Obama’s mother. Following the pattern of a slow migration more or less straight westward from the north-east the Dunham’s starting out in 17th century Massachusetts wound up in Washington state by the mid 20th century. As part of the Dunham’s multi-generational ‘layover’ in Kansas since the 19th century (possibly beginning as Kansas* ‘free soilers’ in the 1850’s from the north opposed -at times violently- to chattel slavery’s spread one wonders?) Ann Dunham (Barack’s mother) was born in Kansas in November of 1942. That her family appeared to still recall it’s Massachusett’s New England origins well into modern times is illustrated by her paternal grandfather and uncle being both named Ralph Waldo Emerson Dunham Sr and Jr respectively, in honor of the 19th century Boston based writer and philosopher.

    While it’s generally well understood that despite the lies told to and sincerely believed by the everyday non-slave holding southerner (ie the vast majority of southerners) that the no win for either ‘side’ Civil War was fought by the South primarily for ‘states rights’ (the states’ ‘right’ to preserve the practice of chattel slavery against most of their non slave holding citizen’s interest) as the North ‘won’ the Civil War nothing in general is heard of the ‘elephant in the living room’ regarding a very major (if not primary) aspect of the northerner’s ’cause’ for promoting and prosecuting the war against the South rather than let them peacably depart the United States, namely the north’s adoption of the far more profitable and efficient, though also far more destructive** to peoplehood and ethnicity, wage slavery (ie so called ‘cheap labor’/mass immigration, the economic and political basis of today’s ‘multi-cultural’ society) instead of chattel slavery. Just as with chattel slavery, wage slavery (ie ‘cheap labor’) is genocidal, even more so in fact, and just as today was very much opposed to the interests of the vast majority of northerners, such as likely was the case at the time with the Dunham family. At the start of the Civil War in 1861 Massachusetts historically predominantly Anglo-Saxon population in Boston, as well as much of the rest of the state, had already largely been displaced by the importation by diktat of many tens of thousands of Roman Catholic Irish so called ‘cheap laborers’ brought in to replace the local famer’s daughters, the ‘Yankee girls’ whom had been doing the factory work. By way of the country’s ‘back door’ the US state of California in 1861 (also by diktat) was importing many thousands of Chinese annually as ‘cheap labor’. Though the term ‘cheap labor’ was well known and commonly used in the US during the first half of the 19th century, in the years immediately preceding the US Civil War and during the war years itself the term ‘cheap labor’ literally disappeared from the national corporate media of the day and was replaced with the term ‘free labor’ in its place. As soon as the war was over in 1865 the term ‘cheap labor’ would magically reappear in common usage within the corporate media, the war era term ‘free labor’ going for the most part into the memory hole. The northern soldier, despite the lies told to them about ‘preserving the union’ and ‘abolishing’ chattel slavery, etc, quite literally fought and died for chattel slavery and its trade’s monetization throughout the land, both in the North and the recalcitrant South, in the form of the North’s cheap labor/mass immigration system, labor which was being imported in by diktat which was already in 1861 replacing/displacing, and ultimately genociding him physically, culturally, and economically.

    I think deep down, perhaps somewhat unconsciously, many of the descendants of the Puritan New Englanders from the northeast to the northwest (ie in places such as Washington state and Oregon) sense that at best they engaged in self deception when they ultimately went along with and fought for the monetization of chattel slavery and its trade in the 19th century with the intoduction of wage slavery in the form of the cheap labor/mass immigration system. The ‘immigrant’ for whatever period of time (days, weeks, months, years) he or she is paid significantly below what was or would of been the prevailing real time local cost of labor (prevailing labor costs that the former would be chattel slave owners would typically under normal conditions be paying to their own people) without the ‘immigration’ taking place, is the slave in this arrangement. It’s not a coincidence therefore that the multicultural society in many ways closely parallels the chattel slave holding society it evolved from. I think they’ve internalized a deep seated self hatred and loathing that developed in the hearts and minds of many of the Anglo-Saxon elites and hangers on of the northeast particularly over this slavery business.

    Facing the past truthfully, though ultimately edifying, can often be both frightening and painful. If not handled properly and delicately this process has the potential to shatter both one’s self and their entire world.

    Unfortunately, however, rather than coming clean and doing the healthy thing and choose life by truly putting a halt to slavery by putting an immediate end to the mass immigration/cheap labor system and then forgive themselves while simultaneously working towards the healing of their own Anglo-Saxon people as well as numerous other peoples greatly harmed by this nefarious so called ‘cheap labor’ system, chattel slavery’s monetization, they instead would appear to be choosing to keep the evil system in place, and like Jim Jones at Jonestown would seem to be embracing and promoting murder/suicide both for themselves and any an all whom might wish to escape the forcibly imposed self-destruction.

    Is something like the latter what Ann Dunham did when she willfully chose to marry Barack Obama’s father, divorce the man not too long after birthing his son, and then more or less abandon Barack at age ten to be raised by her parents, though as mentioned, very probably as with most people historically north and south, the Dunhams did not engage in or personally profit from chattel slavery or its monetization in the form of so called ‘cheap labor’, but rather like most had greatly suffered from it?

    * ‘Bleeding Kansas’ during the latter 1850’s had guerilla armies fighting for control of the territory financed respectively by New England ‘cheap labor’ advocating industrialists and Southern plantatation owning chattel slave advocates. A city that was central to this struggle on the ‘abolitionist’ side was Lawrence, KS whose construction had been financed by the Massachusetts based Lawrence family of textile factory magnates. Not coincidentally Lawrence, KS has a sister city in the planned industrial town of Lawrence, Mass whose construction was also financed by the same powerful Lawrence family, the latter city’s official nickname to this day being ‘Immigrant City’. These New England industrialists, many of them like the Lawrence family, the owners of cotton consuming textile mills had a powerful reason to support abolitionism (if these often enough historically former chattel slave dealers and slave owners of the north-east had not concocted the abolition movement themselves for this reason) in that chattel slavery was far less financially profitable/efficient, in that order, than wage slavery (ie imported ‘cheap labor’). The former US treasurer and territorial governor of ‘Bleeding Kansas’ (1857) Robert Walker whilst in London during the critical war year of 1863 as the financial representative of the Lincoln administration going to some length to take variables into account, calculated that wage slavery (ie ‘cheap labor’) based Massachusetts had a profitabilty/efficiency/productivity which was four times that of chattel slavery based South Carolina labor. It was this very costly and inefficient southern chattel slave labor which was picking the cotton which fed the northern textile mills, significantly driving up the cloth’s production costs besides making the finished product potentially less competitive on the market than it could be. Regarding the relationship a good number of these New England factory owners had towards money one might recall here the description of Dicken’s ‘Scrooge’ inside his counting house. It was apparently economic calculations such as Walker’s which were a major prompt for New England’s industrialists, such as the Lawrence family, to financially sponsor much of the Abolition cause so that they in time could bring the cheap labor/mass immigration system of the North into the recalcitrant South. It will also be recalled that 1850’s Bleeding Kansas is generally seen as a micro-cosm of the coming US Civil War of 1861 – 65.

    ** It had taken the largely Anglo-Saxon population of chattel slave holding South Carolina well over two hundred years to become a minority of the states population, ie 45% as opposed to 55% chattel slave in 1860. With wage slavery, ie ‘cheap labor’/mass immigration this process of genocidal displacement takes only a mere few decades as is readily observable in the US since 1965 and in Europe as well.,_Massachusetts,_Kansas

    A bit more regarding the US Civil War and a truth that dare not be spoken in the United States, ie that the war was fought for slavery by both the North and South despite it being decidedly not in the general public’s interest on both ‘sides’ to do so. When violence became unavoidable the guns rather than being turned against each other in 1861 should of been turned upon the chattel slave owners and wage slave (‘cheap labor’) exploiters and hangers on of the south and north respectively, most of whom I’m thouroughly convinced would of readily surrendered when forcibly confronted by their own in that way. A true abolition of slavery would of been had instead of the faux one that actually occurred and self determination could have been allowed for both the former slave and the vast majority of the non chattel and wage slave exploting public, each with powerful reasons to go their own separate ways.

    Bottom line as to this, if a people wishes to retain their peoplehood in the physical and cultural sense, there is no free lunch regarding the genocidal and terribly destructive practice of slavery, whether it be the classical chattel or its modern monetization, wage slavery, manifesting itself in the ‘cheap labor’/mass immigration system we particularly in the Anglosphere have the misfortune to know so well.

    Those peoples wishing to preserve themselves must do their own work. Japan is a good modern example, amongst others, as has been much of Europe till recently.

    Note again that ‘free labor’ is simply a propaganda term for ‘cheap labor’.

    “The [Civil] war was essentially an industrial struggle – a struggle between free labor and the masters of slave labor.” Harper’s New Monthly Magazine – January 1897

    “The educated free labor of Massachusetts, we have seen, doubles the products of toil, per capita, as compared with Maryland, and quadruples them (as the Census shows) compared with South Carolina….” Former US Treasurer and slave speculator Robert Walker* writing in London in December 1863. The Continental Monthly – March 1864

    ‘Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power, and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan led by England, is for capital to control labor by controlling the wages…’ Bank of England circular sent to every bank in New York and New England in 1862, Imperial Washington (1922)

    “It is our conviction that monopolies are as destructive as competition is conservative of the principles and vitalities of republican Government; that slave labor is a monopoly which excludes free labor and competition; that slaves are kept in comparitive idleness and ease in a fertile half of our arable national territory, while free white laborers, constantly augmenting in numbers from Europe, are confined to the the other half and are often distressed by want; that the free white laborers of the North has more need of expansion into the Southern States, from which it is virtually excluded, than slavery had into Texas in 1846…” Excerpt of Proclamation by US Brigadier-General Phelps to the loyal people of the Southwest, Ship Island, Mississippi, December 4, 1861

    …the rise of the modern industrial system made wage slavery a more efficient agent of production than chattel slavery. Excerpt of the 1907 foreword to the book The War-Time Journal of a Georgia Girl, 1864-1865 (published in 1908)

    * The former US Treasurer and slave speculator Robert Walker, utilizing US census data for 1860, compared Massachusetts and South Carolina. Mass, the center of US industry at the time, and indeed, where it had gotten started, was heavily reliant upon ‘cheap labor’ imported from Canada and Europe…while meanwhile South Carolina was heavily reliant upon chattel slaves. In doing so he effectively calculated that cheap labor was four times more profitable than chattel slavery.

    Abbott Lawrence , besides being the Masachusetts based Lawrence family of textile factory magnates patriarch, was also the US ambassador to the UK in 1851, which at the time included the whole of then famine stricken Ireland, a rich source of wage slaves (ie so called ‘cheap labor’) at the time for New England’s manufacturing plants, including Lawrence’s own.

    That same year (Sept 30, 1851)the London Times wrote a lauditory editorial about an ongoing tour of Ireland Ambassador Lawrence was making of the the unfortunate island.

    It is curious to read the language used by the proto-multiculturalists at the Times in reference to the people in the north of Ireland (the historic immigrants of the Plantation imported into Ireland by diktat and the resulting ‘mixed’ population there), which the paper describes as being a race of slaves almost a full generation after slavery’s supposed abolition throughout the British Empire. However, such language and the backwards brutal mentality towards others makes perfect sense if chattel slavery was not in reality abolished but was rather quite literally and simply monetized with the 19th century introduction of the cheap labor/mass immigration system within the Anglosphere of that time, the immigrant being the slave in this arrangement for whatever period of time he or she is paid significantly below what was or would of been the prevailing real time local cost of labor without the immigrant being present or the immigration taking place. This ‘just in time’ slavery of wage slavery (ie ‘cheap labor’) retains the essence of chattel slavery within it, which at its core is simply nothing less than the systematic theft of the value of an individual’s labor.

    The language of the multiculturalists today, just as in the past, makes perfect sense if chattel slavery had not in reality been abolished but was instead monetized with the introduction of the so called ‘cheap labor’/mass immigration system when they refer to the ‘immigrants’ they proclaim to care so much about as ‘stock’, a term synonomous with merchandise.

    ..more mixed, more docile, and more serviceable race, which has long borne the yoke of sturdy industry in this island, which can submit to a master and obey the law…

    “The prosperity and happiness he [Lawrence] speaks of may some day reign over that beautiful island. It’s fertile soil, its water-power, its minerals, and other materials for the wants and luxuries of man, may one day be developed; but all apearances are against the belief that this will ever happen in the days of the Celt. That tribe will soon fulfill the great law of Providence which seems to enjoin and reward the union of races. It will mix with the Anglo-American, and be known no more as a jealous and separate people. Its present place will be occupied by the more mixed, more docile, and more serviceable race, which has long borne the yoke of sturdy industry in this island, which can submit to a master and obey the law…”

    Below is a link and description to a video entitled ‘Lawrence, Mass – Immigrant City’ and which describes Lawrence, now 80% Latino, as ‘New England’s first minority-majority city’:

    ‘Lawrence, Massachusetts is a historically immigrant town established in the 1800’s when European immigrants came to work in the famed textile mills. Today, more than 80 percent of the population is Latino. Matter of Fact Correspondent Diane Roberts went to Lawrence to see how this historical mill town became New England’s first minority-majority city.’

    In 1874 the Pall Mall Gazette openly and specifically acknowledged concern about race (ie people’s natural and entirely healthy aversion to genocide whether by mixing and being bred out of existance or otherwise) as being the primary impediment to the scheme (which the paper lauded) of importing many millions of Chinese wage slaves, ie ‘cheap laborers’ to the United States and Australia. Since that time instead of desisting from such unwanted schemes the former would be slave dealers of the Anglosphere concocted the cult/ideology of multiculturalism with its integral anti-race campaign for people to embrace and believe in.

    Is that part of the explanation for Ann Dunham’s actions in regard to giving birth to Barack Obama?

    Pall Mall Gazette – 1874

    “A dread of what might happen if capitalists could command and control these vast hordes of workmen as against men of their own race, has made the labouring class, at any rate, blind to their good qualities.”

    MacDonald criticizes Lincoln for saying, in so many words, that “against the forces of evil, there can be no accommodation, no compromise.” Yet could there be any accommodation, any compromise, with the likes of Tim Wise? See

    Bill R above is spot on (minus the inexplicable remark about Hitler). Immigration patriots ought to have a moral outlook. Tim Wise and his ilk really are evil.

      Bill R says:

      I probably should have provided more context to the Hitler reference, or left it out altogether. What was on my mind was, first of all, Hitler is a figure of no small importance among White Nationalists. But I am also intrigued by a curious anti-Anglo-Protestant attitude I have noticed among certain White Nationalists that can lead to some odd double-standards, such as unloading on a figure like Lincoln with criticisms (millenarianism, viewing political opposition in moral terms, etc.) that were even more true of Hitler, yet Hitler escapes criticism for these qualities. Dr. MacDonald talked about Lincoln justifying a war that cost the lives of 700,000 White men. How many hundreds of thousands of White men perished in the war Adolf Hitler justified? And I am not saying Hitler was necessarily wrong. Many White Nationalists view what he tried to do as a great campaign to rid the world of the most murderous ideology humanity has ever faced. And commensurate with that, Hitler embraced with passion the notion that he was in a “perpetual war against the powers or darkness.” Far more reprehensible is the leader who would send men to die in war *without* believing they were fighting against the powers of darkness. Or should men be sent to die in war merely to teach the other side good manners? So the reference to Hitler is meant to underscore my view that Dr. MacDonald’s point about Lincoln is meaningless, and furthermore, that it’s an unconvincing and contradictory attempt to separate out this and other Anglo-Protestant descendants of American Puritans for special condemnation. I say “unconvincing and contradictory” because he invariably ends up condemning them for qualities that are often admirable, but more to the point, hardly unique to them.
