Where is Calvin Coolidge When We Need Him?

In the 1952 American presidential election, Republican Dwight Eisenhower ran against Democrat Adlai Stevenson.  Eisenhower was a five-star general in the army and Stevenson was the governor of Illinois.   I’m so old I was in grade school back then and my teacher Miss Kelly, who was big for Stevenson—as I think about it, this may not have been altogether appropriate—put me up to standing on a corner in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota handing out Stevenson campaign literature to anybody who would take it.

My dad was a barber in the basement of the Saint Francis Hotel a block away, and I took a break from my political duties to pay him a visit.  After saying hello to Dad in his satiny smock and watching a haircut, I gathered up my pile of Stevenson flyers and went up the stairs to the lobby of the hotel and the front door with the idea of getting back to work.

When I got to the top of the stairs, I saw a banner saying there was a meeting of the Minnesota Republican Party going on in the Saint Francis.  There were a few cardboard posters propped up with sticks with pictures of what must have been party luminaries.  About twenty men—all men in those years—stood talking to one another; I supposed they were party members between meetings.   Making my way head-down through them on my way to the front door and the street, I stumbled and out spewed, it seemed like ten feet, all my Stevenson flyers with his picture on them.  I was mortified and a bit scared—the barber’s kid, a collage of Stevenson faces on the lobby floor, and the Republicans in their suits looking eight feet tall to me who had stopped what they were doing to take in what had just happened.  As it turned out, they couldn’t have been nicer.  They all smiled and helped me gather up the flyers and wished me well and I went on my way.   I’ve never forgotten that moment.

Maybe I’ve taken too long to get to what I want to say here, but the purpose of recounting this memory was to establish the context for the general observation that I think I’ve lived through a marked downturn in American politics: from Dwight David Eisenhower and Adlai E. Stevenson—grown-ups, serious men, men of real substance, both of them—to Donald Trump and Beto O’Rourke.   Eisenhower and Stevenson had discrete comb overs, but neither of them had what looked like a lemon meringue dessert sitting on his head, and neither of them talked about the size of his member on the campaign trail.  And Beto?  Is he the one with REO Speedwagon on his mixtape?  President Beto?  Really?  Eisenhower had been the Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Europe during World War II and president of Columbia University.   What exactly has Beto done that’s so great?

To get to the specific topic of this writing: a story, or I guess it’s a joke, my dad told me perhaps a few too many times when I was growing up.  It had to do with a president from the 1920s, Calvin Coolidge.  Coolidge wasn’t the most outgoing person in the world and he wasn’t known for his loquaciousness.  The way the story/joke Dad told me went, a little boy, nine or so, went up to President Coolidge and said, “My dad bet me a nickel that you wouldn’t say three words to me.”  After a pause, Coolidge looked at the tyke and said, “You lose.”

Calvin Coolidge.  Born in 1872, died in 1933.   Republican.   Elected vice-president in 1920.   Became president in 1923 upon the death of president Warren G. Harding.  Elected president in 1924.  Declined to run for a second full term as president in 1928.1

Calvin Coolidge

People who have done the talking all of my life don’t like presidents like Calvin Coolidge. They like top-down, activist presidents who make big things happen, big things that they, the talkers, personally favor—like wars, government control of people’s lives, and showy collectivist ideas: Abraham Lincoln (“Kill ‘em!”), Franklin Roosevelt (“Have I got a program for you”), John Kennedy (“We’re going to the moon!”), presidents like that.   That wasn’t Coolidge.  And more, the talkers don’t like people of Calvin Coolidge’s sort, period: tight-assed, conservative white guys.  The argument here is that given my outlook—and since you’re reading this publication, probably yours—Calvin Coolidge was an exemplary American, and that we need Calvin Coolidge types front and center in this country’s public arena.

To understand Calvin Coolidge, you need to take into account where he’s from.  He was born in Plymouth, Vermont and grew up among Vermonters, whom he referred to as “hardy and self-contained people.”  I know what he was talking about; I have lived all of my adult life in Vermont.

Near the end of his life, Coolidge wrote:

Vermont is the state I love.    I could not look upon the peaks of Ascutney, Killington, Mansfield, and Equinox without being moved.  It was here I saw the first light of day; here that I received my bride.  Here my dead lay buried, pillowed among the everlasting hills.  I love Vermont because of her hills and valleys, her scenery and invigorating climate, but most of all I love her because of her indomitable people.  They are a race of pioneers, who almost impoverished themselves for the love of others.  If ever the spirit of liberty should vanish from the rest of the Union, it could be restored by the generous store held by the people of the brave little state of Vermont.

Indomitable people.  Race of pioneers.  Love of others.   Spirit of liberty.  And I’ll add that they are polite and respectful and decent and kind.

Coolidge was indeed indomitable.  He never quit.  “If I had permitted my failures,” he wrote, “or what seemed to me to at the time a lack of success, to discourage me, I cannot see any way in which I would have ever made progress.”  Coolidge knew that he came from somewhere, that he was descended from a people with a history and a heritage they were proud of, and he gained strength and direction from that in the way he conducted his life.   He was quiet about it, but he loved others: his wife and two sons, his neighbors, his community, his state and nation.  And from all reports, he was a civil and giving person.

Very important as far as I am concerned, Calvin Coolidge was imbued with the spirit of liberty.  He sought to free people, not control them.  He didn’t hector people to be this way or that, and he didn’t take kindly to anybody else doing it.   He bemoaned the fact that, in his words, “teacher desks are becoming soap box platforms.”

At its core, the American political system is an experiment in personal freedom and responsibility.  It is the opportunity and the challenge to individual human beings to make something worthwhile out of their lives, in both the private and public spheres.  It is the right of people to control their own destinies.  American commitment to liberty is grounded in our Anglo-Saxon heritage: The Magna Carta, the Glorious Revolution.

Thomas Jefferson was enamored of the way of life in Saxony during the Middle Ages, where, as he saw it, small communities of people managed their own affairs free from dictates from on high.  In a letter written late in his life, Jefferson wrote, “God send that our country may never have a government which it can feel.”  If government is anything in our time, it is felt, and bent on being more felt, and still more, and more, and more, and more.

Of course, Jefferson is the primary author of the Declaration of Independence.   His biographer, Joseph Ellis, wrote:

The explicit claim is that the individual is the sovereign unit in society; his natural state is freedom from and equality with all other individuals; this is the natural order of things.  The implicit claim is that all restrictions on this natural order are immoral transgressions, violations of what God intended; individuals liberated from such restrictions will interact with their fellows in a harmonious scheme requiring no external discipline and producing maximum human happiness.2

Calvin Coolidge believed fervently in human freedom, along with its concomitant value, personal responsibility.  To illustrate, I’ll venture a guess that Calvin Coolidge would approach the current opioid crisis with this message (I’m far more verbose here than he would be, but this is what he would get across): “If you are destroying your life with opioids and in the process hurting those close to you, I care deeply about what’s going on with you.  But I’m going to level with you.  All the government programs in the world aren’t going to save you from opioids.  If it’s going to happen, you are going to save yourself from opioids.  The way to get clear of your opioid self-abuse is for you to stop taking opioids.  It comes down to that.  It’s going to be difficult, at least at first—after that, you might be surprised at how easy it is to center your life around building yourself up rather than tearing yourself down.  But however difficult it is, I believe you can do it.  And when you do it you’ll be proud of yourself, and the people in your life will be proud of you.   Even though I may get praised for all my understanding and compassion, I’m not going to give you reasons and excuses for failing to take charge of your life.”

Needless to say, that’s not how elected officials come at anything these days—but, as I see it, it would help if they did.3

How did Coolidge do as president?  The American economy grew, wages rose, unemployment hovered around a low 3%, the national debt went down, tax rates fell, the budget was a surplus every year, and the federal government was smaller at the end of his six years than it was at the beginning.  Not bad for a nobody-nothing president who’s been tossed down the memory hole of history by the enlightened among us.

Of particular interest to the readers of this publication, during Coolidge’s years, the Immigration Act of 1924, also called the Johnson-Reed Act, became law.  It lasted until 1965, when it was replaced by the Immigration and Nationality Act, also known as the Hart-Celler Act, which undid its provisions.  The 1924 law established immigration quotas based on the composition of the U.S. population in 1890 and had the effect of greatly reducing immigration from Eastern and Southern Europe, which especially affected the entry of Italians, Jews, Greeks, Poles, and Slavs.  It virtually ended Asian immigration.

President Coolidge signs the Johnson-Reed Immigration Act of 1924

It’s clear where Coolidge’s sympathies lay in this matter.  He was quoted as saying, “I am convinced that our present economic and social conditions warrant a limit on those to be admitted.”  When he was vice president, Coolidge published an article in Good Housekeeping magazine entitled “Whose Country is This?” in which he wrote:

There are racial considerations too grave to be brushed aside for any sentimental reasons.  Biological laws tell us that certain people will not mix or blend.  The Nordics propagate themselves successfully.  With other races, the outcome shows deterioration on both sides.  Quality of mind and body suggest that observance of ethnic law is as great a necessity to a nation as immigration law.

In the main arena of public life in our time, who is saying anything remotely like that?   Many would if they weren’t afraid.   Calvin Coolidge had integrity, and he had courage (“brave little state of Vermont”), and I believe is he were alive today he’d find a way to get this idea across. There was a close fit between his most cherished beliefs and commitments, his expressions, and his actions.

Something close to my heart, The Kellogg-Briand Pact was formulated during Coolidge’s years.  Frank B. Kellogg was Coolidge’s Secretary of State and Aristide Briand was the French Minister of Foreign Affairs.  It was also known as The Pact of Paris.  Its official title gets at its thrust, The General Treaty for Renunciation of War as an Instrument of National Policy.   I say close to my heart, because I’ve had it up to here with one government program in particular: mass destruction and killing.4

Briand had proposed a bilateral agreement between the United States and France to outlaw war between them.  Coolidge and Kellogg suggested that the two nations take the lead in inviting all nations to join them in banning war.  On August 27th, 1928, fifteen nations signed a pact in Paris promising not to use war to resolve disputes “of whatever nature or of whatever origin they may be, which may arise among them.”  The signatories included, sadly enough, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan.  Later, an additional 47 nations signed on.   The U.S. Senate ratified the agreement by a vote of 85–1, though making it clear that this country wasn’t giving up its right to self-defense or committing itself to acting against countries that broke the agreement.

President Coolidge (left) and Secretary of State Frank B. Kellogg sign the Kellogg-Briand Pact.

Of course, a decade later signers of the pact embarked on the horror known as World War II.   Fifty million deaths in Europe alone—take thirty seconds to contemplate that number.  Cities devastated.  The allies’ firebombing of Dresden.  Recall the pictures of London early in the war and Berlin at the end of it.  Atomic bombs dropped on civilian populations in Japan.   Four hundred eighteen thousand American deaths, practically all of them young men just starting their lives, and none of them on American soil.  It all had to happen, no way around it, no negotiated solution possible; seeing who could most effectively blow things up and kill people was the only way to resolve those issues.   I don’t buy that line anymore.4

The point here is that Calvin Coolidge isn’t best known for saying “Speak softly and carry a big stick” and charging up San Juan Hill with the intent of ending the life of another human being.  Kellogg-Briand failed, and perhaps those involved, including Coolidge, didn’t go about it in the most effective way.  But I respect greatly the impulse behind it, and I’m trying to think of anyone center stage in our time even raising the possibility of taking things in this direction.   It goes far beyond having fewer troops in Syria.

Those interested in the wellbeing and fate of white people would benefit from the presence in public life of men and women like Calvin Coolidge, as politicians and office holders and as white racial activists.

Someone like Coolidge would be an appealing candidate and incumbent in this country.  The great majority of Americans are neither radical nor reactionary, far left or far right; they are middle-of-the-road folks.   Coolidge looked like everyday people, he talked like them, he lived like them (not wanting to pay mortgage interest, he always rented modest houses), and he understood and respected them.  He was soft-spoken and courteous.  He served the citizenry, he didn’t come on as their boss, he didn’t talk about running the country.   He married his wife (who grew up on Maple Street in Burlington, Vermont, a few blocks from where I sit writing these words) in 1905 and stayed with her until the day he died.  He was a devoted parent.  No scandals with Coolidge; he didn’t pay hush money to strippers.  He didn’t broadcast his religiosity (Pence).  He was racially conscious, but especially after he became president, he was low key about it.  A highly intelligent and informed Amherst College graduate, his approach to the current immigration issue would involve more than shouting and tweets about building a wall.  Electable, sympathetic to the cause of white people, sophisticated and nuanced, no personal baggage.

As a racial advocate, a modern-day Coolidge would bring a slant to things that deserves a place in white racial discourse:

Such a person would stay clear of labeling himself as a rightist, and the overall movement as an enterprise of the right. No alt-right, no dissident right.  He’d present white advocacy as mainstream, centrist. Representative of the interests of two-thirds of the population of this country, white concerns aren’t inherently right-wing any more than black concerns, representing the interests of 13% of the population, or Jewish concerns, representing 2% of the population, are inherently left-wing.   And in any case, to take on a right-wing identity is to get rejected out of hand by the vast majority of people and relegated to the fringe of American life and, drawing on an article I wrote for The Occidental Observer last year, figuratively or literally hit over the head with a club.

He’d be rooted in this constitutional republic, and he would think of himself as connecting with and continuing the American story.   This, rather than, say, creating a white ethno-state.  He’d stay clear of the white nationalism label, both to emphasize that his frame of reference is America and its European heritage and to avoid having to duck the club wielders.

He’d be grounded in Thomas Jefferson more than Julius Evola or Guillaume Faye (R.I.P.).  He’d refer often and favorably to liberty.  The words “individual” and “individualism” wouldn’t have negative connotations.  He would assert that personal freedom and individualism are contributory, complementary—not contradictory, not dichotomous—to white racial consciousness and commitment.   He would advocate the creation of small, intimate, supportive, white communities and networks.

He would exemplify and promote civility, tolerance, generosity, kindness, and self-sacrifice (he wouldn’t equate altruism with foolishness).  He wouldn’t set white loyalties off against a love for all people.  At the same time, he would recognize threats to our race and culture and country and the need to vigorously resist them.

He wouldn’t make race everything.  Race would be vitally important, but so too would be honorable and productive work and honest self-expression, and place and love and family and friendship and service to others, and leisure and fun, and the fact that we are going to die.

    A beautiful meditation, but truly one out of time. We live in an age of increasing extremism, and the modulated tone proposed here would fall soundless to the earth.

    Ultimately, race really *is* everything, and our culture is so far gone that a ticket with Calvin Coolidge at the top and Norman Rockwell at the VP slot wouldn’t be enough to put Humpty together again.

    Still, a beautiful reminiscence of a sane time. I truly enjoyed reading it.

    Interesting article. The ending darkened much of the light. Race is everything. When that goes so does our people. Perhaps one of the reasons things are speeding down hill is becuz of thoughts within the ending of Dr, Griffin’s piece.

    I have rode, for decades, from coast-to-coast, on an iron hoss. I’ve personally seen the demographic change. To see it and read about it are two different things.

    Oh, how things have changed. There was a time that you could ride all over America with a protector in your pocket. That no longer applies.

    Dr, Griffin is a fine person. I’ve often read his work. His take on aging hit home. Life is, indeed, very short. He’s lucky to have resided in VT. I spent time in all W communities of New England and, of course, East Germany, Poland, Byelorussia and the Baltic States. A revolution had me leave Europe.

    Earlier I had seen the MoTown riot from a window where I had been giving a lecture. I saw Capitol Hill’s instituted busing and left for years of peace, residing in Mother Europe’s womb. A revolution caused a return. Now one sees the South being filled with non-Euro elements and there’s worry about the next generations.

    I never thought I’d see the change again, especially in old age. Yes, race is everything. Perhaps if someone had taken care of LBJ the course would have altered. If one recalls correctly, Wallace won something like 14 primaries before being taken out of the race. Had he won, would there have been peace via relocation policy (instead of unofficial official City States)? Today, with cyber monitoring, it would be wrong to dwell on such “wrong” ponderings.

    In all probability, Wilmot Roberston’s ideology about the USA evolving into “Ethno States,” might have plenty of substance. However, what will be next? Look at your grandchildren and think about how you, yourself, have evolved into an element of self-censorship, all becuz of one simple peaceful desire. Yes, a desire that EuroMan will not go the way of the Whooping Crane.

    Thanks for the beautiful article. CC is my second favorite 20th Century American. My first is Charles Lindbergh. I am jealous of my late father as he was 11 in 1927 and was conscious of Lucky Lindy and President Silent Cal. I would give anything to be present when CL met CC after coming back from Paris after the flight. I have been to the Plymouth Notch Historical site 3 times and I loved it each time. If my wife could handle the winters, I would move to Vermont in a second. My memory of the “You lose” response is that it was to a lady reporter, maybe Dorothy Parker, not to a little boy. I read CC’s autobiography about 20 years ago and one thing I didn’t like was that Coolidge had high praise for Woodrow Wilson, who in my view, was perhaps the biggest disaster of the entire 20th Century. I believe Coolidge called Wilson “a great statesman” but since it has been so long since I read the book, I may be wrong.

      Hi Jud,
      Your father is almost exactly the same age as my father, so we must be close in age too. I grew up in the same America that Robert Griffin did; in my 6th grade class, a few boys were all worked up about “Ike” and even though I liked the boys, I stood up for Stevenson because my father was a Democrat. And Stevenson was born and raised in our (very Republican) home town! His house was still there. My best friend and I rode our bikes all the way across town to the railway station one Saturday morning to see the candidate appear in person on his whistle-stop tour. I was shocked that there were only a few people there; I’d expected a big crowd. When the train arrived, Adlai stepped out to the back end of the red-white-blue decorated caboose, as they did then, with a big smile and didn’t show any disappointment. He did make a few jokes about it though. I thought he was charming and became even more in his corner as the underdog. Alas, what did I know; it was a good thing he wasn’t elected, even though I personally despise Eisenhower considering what I learned later.

      My comment is that Coolidge would not say the things today that he said then about race. No way. Especially if he thought Wiison was right to take us into that European war. Wilson suffered from delusions of his own importance and was an easy mark.

      Please look at my series of posts about Wilson’s un-American allegiance to Great Britain over America’s best interests. https://carolynyeager.net/1916-wilson-administration-drops-fa%C3%A7ade-neutrality-attacks-german-americans

        Hi Carolyn,

        I will look at your posts very soon.

        I was born a few years later than you in 1956. So, I can’t remember Ike being president at all. I have personal memories when he was president but none of him. I like him for 4 reasons: Operation Wetback, ending the Suez Crisis, his farewell address and advising Truman not to nuke Japan. I don’t like him for Little Rock in 1957 and appointing Warren and Brennan to the Supreme Court. After his presidency he admitted that these appointments were two big mistakes. I have almost no memory of Stevenson, even from the 60s.

        Thanks for responding to my comment.

    I think truthfully that the root of the problem is the white tendency to over rationalize and over empathize. These two characteristics dominate white societies decision making and conflict resolution processes. White societies stress compromising to avoid conflict and living by the golden rule, “Treat others as you would have them treat you”. This all assumes that the other party holds you with the same regard but that is not the case at all in the United States. There is no doubt that we are seeing the deliberate and long planned disempowerment and displacement of the American white population along with most of Europe as well. The white population has been bombarded since at least the 1960s with revisionist historical narratives that are nothing but absolute lies. The end result is that white American culture and history are now an anathema. At some point the white population has to push back and push back hard. Call these liars for who they are! I truly believe that I will see my own people being loaded into boxcars and suffering overt genocide in my lifetime. There is so much hatred and anger that I have experienced from black Americans. I USE to lean towards the belief that America could be a multi-cultural society with respect for all. But that is not the objective of the global banksters and billionaire criminals that own the Republican and Democratic parties in America. They want the white power base marginalized to prevent a “counter revolution” that takes away their corrupt hold on political power and ceases their pillaging of the nation’s wealth. And as for racial mixing and the consequences we can see here and now before our very eyes. The “black” population in the United States genetically is uniquely distinct from any in Africa due to several hundred years of interracial mixing with whites. Black Americans on average have a genome being 25 to 35% white. Almost 40% of black American men have a Y-chromosome linked to southern European and eastern Mediterranean populations. The end result is an average black American’s IQ is 80 versus a black African’s of 70. The average white American’s IQ is ~100. It would seem to me that we have tried the interracial experiment and it has been an absolute and undeniable failure!

    Definitely interesting to look through the author’s prism of that period in time and see things as he did. And I think that at that time, we COULD see white interests in a milder way because there certainly wasn’t a hot war against them as there is today. Also, we must remember that until the last few decades, the US was 80-90 % white, and even if very few of those people were active in promoting racial awareness, the very fact that so many of them existed as veritable place holders is enough to fend off attacks against our people. Today, we have a very different situation, as we all know, and it’s no longer possible to have polite political discourse with others who have an underlying similarity with us when it comes to the so called big issues because, these days, our very lives are on the line.

    Also, I can’t escape the feeling that maybe the problem of why we’re staring down the barrel of the proverbial gun today as a race and a society is because there were too many Calvin Coolidges in our government, and not enough George Lincoln Rockwells. Ultimately, every mild mannered, easy going, agreeable man takes us one step closer to the clownworld we now are blighted with daily. Perhaps a tyrant of sorts is what is needed. To rule with an iron fist in a velvet glove, and to brook no dissent from the agenda driven peanut gallery that has taken advantage of our civility as a race to hasten us down the slippery slope to complete disaster.

    White people have a long history of being nice and accommodating, and we’re well on our way to accommodating ourselves into extinction at this point. I think it’s time to tuck civility back into the behavioral tool chest for a while and reach for the hammer of the berserker instead.

    I don’t live in Vermont but I go there often and I read the Bennington Banner. I also know people with deep roots in the State from the bad old days of quarrying and dairy farming who explained to me how a hippie xenogenesis socio-politically flipped the place almost overnight. So although Professor Griffin’s description is accurate, it is of a Vermont now irretrievably lost; might just as well be put it in a museum case. Vermont is a place of Berny Sanders; of eager race replacement; of tranny bathroom rights and feyntanil.
    Booze and drugs: I had ignored Trump my entire life, but I sat up and listened when he said he had abstained from alcohol, drugs and tobacco because his brother became a hopeless addict. His brother had told him, “if you don’t start, you won’t have to stop.” I believed that Trump, realizing that all the money in the world, all the medical resources available, and an abundance of familial support were not able to help his brother, would not just “throw $$$ at the problem”. I guess I was wrong.

    Another great example of how this site leads you down blind alleys and dead ends to lead you away from discovering the truths of jooz.

    Calvin Coolidge LOVED Zionists but the authors here would never tell you this because they want you on board with jooz not against them.

    The convention of the New England Zionist Region here heard a message from President Coolidge confirming his sympathy with the Zionist movement. The following message was addressed by the President to the Hon. Elihu D. Stone, Assistant United States Attorney, who is chairman of the New England Zionist Region:
    “I regret that the pressure of other duties will prevent me from attending the Convention of the Zionist Organization of New England at Worcester on June 1st, but I hope that you will extend to the delegates assembled my good wishes on this occasion. I have so many times reiterated my interest in this great movement that anything which I might say would be a repetition of former statements, but I am nevertheless glad to have this opportunity to express again my sympathy with that deep and intense longing which finds such fine expression in the Jewish National Homeland in Palestine.”

    A very nice essay. Alas, we NEEDED Cal Coolidge at every point from 1965 (really, 1928, but I’m keeping with the racial theme) until perhaps 2008. But today, no, the situation is so far gone that we need a much, much hardier and indeed brutal soul. Coolidge tried, in his quietly heroic way, to save White America, and indeed, in the 20th century, who did more? The 1924 Immigration Act was possibly the greatest piece of legislation in US history. But ultimately, the politics he (and I) favored – liberty + keeping America White – failed. This was not Coolidge’s fault, but it is the reality today.

    A White American Franco or Pinochet is all that can save us now.

    Actually this problem is a biological war (races are biological sub-types), previously commented on the concept “Social Node.” The most powerful Social Node is the ethnic one.
     It is defined that node is a space in which converge part of the connections (links) of other real or abstract spaces that share their same characteristics and that in turn are also nodes. These nodes in addition to being linked contain information that can be used and exchanged between them for a common goal.
    The Jews as Ethnic Social Node are the most powerful, there are also LGTBI Social Nodes, Ethnic Minorities, Ideological, Religious, Generational, Cultural, etc.
     But the Ethnic Social Node = Ethnic lineage = power.
    Example: a solitary ant is weak and helpless, but millions of sisters together can shoot down a Leon or Elephant.
    Finally the Jewish strategy is based on undermining the Ethnic Social Node of whites. They will use it in every society they infect. Tomorrow may be Asia and they will be filled with Africans.
    Defensive and offensive strategy:
    Educate white youth, literature, film, video, culture, music, independent pro-blanca.
    Expose them in their lies and interests (the Jews, they will try to censor)
    Create autonomous homogenous white communities
    Colonize virgin environments (expelling non-whites from the USA, France, UK, Germany … would be almost impossible), ahem: Alaska which is the least populated state, Antarctica which is a depopulated continent, Submarine environments, three quarters is ocean, Japan already plans to create cities in the ocean bed.
    The latter must be done without interference from the governments since they are anti-white Zionist globalists.
    The white man came to the moon, so he could conquer other environments.
