William H. Regnery II: In Memoriam

Bill Regnery died on July 2 of this year at the age of 80. He was a morally upright man, proud of his family with its long history of involvement in conservative politics going back to his grandfather, who was a founding member of the America First Committee that attempted to keep America out of World War II and whose spokesman was Charles Lindbergh. Lindbergh was seen as an anti-Semite for (truthfully) calling attention to Jewish involvement in promoting the war and for noting Jewish influence on the media, most famously in a speech on September 11, 1941 (discussed here, p. viii ff). I never discussed with Bill how his forebears viewed Jewish influence, but Bill was definitely aware of its importance in understanding politics and culture in America.

Perhaps his most lasting contribution was founding in 2001 the Charles Martel Society, named after the Frankish king who defeated a Muslim army at the Battle of Tours in 732, likely saving Western civilization and its unique genetic and cultural profile. The name of the society is a good indication of Bill’s attitudes on the central issue of preserving the West. The CMS has never shied away from discussing Jewish influence, and Bill was a regular attendee and sometime speaker at their annual conferences, until attendance became impossible because of declining health. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations at these meetings. He was very intelligent, well read, and deeply committed to the cause of preserving White America and the West in general.

The CMS is the publisher of The Occidental Quarterly: Western Perspectives on Man, Culture, and Politics, which I edit. The journal is now in its twentieth year of continuous publication of scholarly articles. The best way to honor Bill’s memory would be to subscribe to TOQ if you haven’t already. It comes as no surprise that TOQ has been de-platformed from credit card processing, which has resulted in problems with recurrent subscriptions. But we are absolutely determined to keep TOQ going. It’s the least we can do for Bill and for the cause generally.

Bill’s passing makes us once again aware of the importance of money in activism of any kind. Perhaps the biggest problem we have is that the mega-rich billionaires are mainly on the left, with some few on the mainstream (worthless, often counter-productive) conservative right. The political contributions of the very wealthy Jewish community are legendary, and none will ever go to the causes Bill supported. Bill understood the importance of money in creating a movement, and he did what he could. One can only hope that someone will step up into the vacuum created by his passing.

On July 17, James Edwards devoted an hour of his regular Saturday night Political Cesspool program to remembering Bill, along with Sam Dickson, Jared Taylor, and me. It’s well worth listening to.

Bill’s last bit of writing appeared on TOO on August 30, 2020. He was already in declining health — I guess we all knew it wouldn’t be long. He did all he could do for the cause—which we should all hope is said about each of us after we die. He will be missed.


Surviving the Contemporary Black Racial and White Intra-Racial Conflict: Anti-Millenarian Whites Must Seek Political Separation

In 1946 Winston Churchill delivered a speech at a small college in Fulton Missouri that offered this prescient analysis: “From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic an ‘iron curtain’ has descended across the continent.” This Soviet invasion made a prison out of the entire area for half a century. Dissenters were severely punished.

Without notice or debate, a similar regimen of speech control is descending on North America, from Bar Harbor, Maine on the Bay of Fundy to Nome, Alaska on the Arctic Ocean, and south to the Rio Grande and the Straits of Florida.

Political correctness, a phrase used almost playfully in the 1990s, has morphed into the viciousness and moral smugness of our current cancel culture, replacing the spirit of the First Amendment. By way of example, I offer the following observation from an early victim of cancel culture, my friend the late Sam Francis.

“The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that the civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people.”

Comments like this led to Francis being fired from his position as columnist for the Washington Times in 1995 and put him into media purgatory and economic distress until his premature death 10 years later.

Sam’s proposition makes no moral distinctions and is not much more than a paean to what in reality is his extended family. In the same context the creating people of Great Zimbabwe were Bantus, the creating people of China were Han, and the creating people of the Inca Empire were Quechuas. If, instead of making a claim about the racial origins of Europe and America, Sam had instead substituted any of these other peoples into his statement, it would have been equally plausible but would not have resulted in Sam’s discharge.

The frenzy to stigmatize any mention of genetics especially as playing a role in the development of White civilization began early in the twentieth century, essentially eradicating what had been a robust intellectual exchange based on the reality of race and the idea that there are important racial differences in behavior around the world. This anti-biologism came to dominate academic thinking after World War II and has become a bedrock attitude among those who are now labeled progressives. Such thinking is woven into contemporary intellectual tapestry; it is taught throughout the school system from elementary school through the university, and it characterizes  entire mainstream media landscape. Among its White adherents, it has assumed a millenarian vision of a utopian future free from all racial conflict—the same sort of millenarianism that has characterized the moral crusades of the past, from the Civil War to World War II, to our contemporary regime-change wars in the Middle East.

Susan Sontag proclaimed “The white race is the cancer of human history.” If we limit her universe to the U.S., I’d say that she was about 40% right as this was the Hillary Clinton fraction of the White vote in the 2016 presidential election. This means that the remaining 60% of White voters represent our side of the family—at least potentially.

One birthday short of becoming an octogenarian, I charge the dissident right with the mission to  begin the intergenerational process of founding an independent political jurisdiction in which anti-millenarian whites can gather, regroup and flourish. Along the way we will support other races with  the same aspiration.

To this end,  we must extract our side of the family from the embrace of the “White millenarians” who are yet intent on imposing their heretical notion of equality on Earth as it art in Heaven —even though the misery from such tampering with human nature abounds in history and has been particularly evident in the recent past.

Our goal must be a Bohemian Divorce of mutual self determination as deliberate and bloodless as the split between the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993. To this end there is long standing precedent which stretches back to the founding of the Republic when separation was recognized as a humane means  of resolving ethnic and racial conflicts and sovereign tracts of land were ceded to indigenes.

Once separation is established, the internal political arrangements are less important than the maintenance of a unifying ethos by enforcing a variant of the Amish practice of Rumpspringa. This exercise encourages youthful apostates to leave the commonwealth before achieving citizenship.  So that a mistake of inclusion is not immutable, I recommend making exile a part of the criminal and civil code, directed at those who are in fundamental disagreement with the ideal of a separate White community. Such a provision could also be used to correct immigration blunders.

We have entered very dangerous times for Whites in America. The  summer riots of 2020 carried out with the blessing of much of the Establishment and the entire left is a clear indication that the American racial experiment is careening toward disaster. Whites need a separate political jurisdiction.

William H. Regnery II is the founder of the Charles Martel Society.

    CIA-funded Regnery Publishing is a part of the elite who want worried whites to remain conservative right wingers (ie harmless).
    People seem to rather close their eyes than admit that they’re being controlled. It’s better to live in denial than to lose that warm sense of hope.

    It is very sad to lose one of our most effective advocates, but I subscribe to the belief that Mr. Regnery has gone to his great reward in Heaven, having done his ancestors proud. I knew nothing of the man’s politics before this article, and yet I knew the name, having noticed that a long series of the books I have read and learned from were all published by the same publishing company, which I hope survives and remains loyal to his beliefs evermore. I believe I will subscribe to TOQ, especially since the future of the internet as a platform of free-expression is greatly in doubt.

    Enough of those patronizing translation services. This is an English-speaking country. Period. Enough of those Mickey Mouse English tests for citizenship. If you can’t speak
    ENGLISH, you can’t become a citizen. Talk about restrictions on voting. This could seriously delay citizenship for many and permanently put it out of the question for a strategic number. We have to fight fire with fire.

    More serious work ought to be done on the connection between genetics and culture. Sam Francis had the right idea but it has to be backed up by science. Our entire public structure is suffering because a lot of people have surrendered in this effort.

    A separate geograohic unit is a kind of surrender.
    What should happen is that people who don’t like it here should leave. I understand that Afreaka is underdeveloped and underinvested, and that there is a promised land waiting for Zionists at the eastern end of the Mediterranean. A political and cultural force should get organized in areas of the country where now traditional Euro/British citizens predominate and expand from there. This is our country, all of it.

    I immensely enjoyed this article. It’s too bad that he died at only 80 years old. Life is situational, however, he was on our side, one of our soldiers. He and those like him have a place in our hearts. No doubt he accomplished a lot. Further, with just a break here or there he could’ve done even more. What if some Big Boy had given him a mln loafs of bread!

    There can be no doubt that eventually science will discover how to stop the aging process and people will live either indefinitely or hundred of years. Adjudicating by present events it seems as though the Chinese will be those controlling most of the planet and exploring the stars. Today the Chinese have the best super computers.

    The difference between us and them is the Z factor and infighting. I would speak about this to a friend of mine who wrote a book entitled The Dispossessed Majority. Most think that they understand us, but they really don’t. Those of us who have been in the Balkan states and/or ambulated between East Germany (DDR), Poland and Byelorussia have a greater comprehension. The situation is not only that of Europe. One can see it globally. There’s a donut shop in town and the waitresses find it offensive if you refer to them as Serbian. They’re “Bosnian” even if they speak Serbian. I won’t go into the history of the region suffice to say that the area was conquered by the Ottoman empire. In other words, it was as some of the areas in contemporary Sweden, France and W. Germany are today.

    Until I got Gilliam Barre Syndrome I would ride iron horses (motorcycles) from coast to coast. It was the most educational of experiences. I had explored US metropolitan regions that I had seen as a kid. No need to touch on how they had completely gone down hill, to say the least. You have to experience it to understand.

    The Chinese are dancing in the streets. No longer is it necessary to have military conflict against EuroMan. Becuz of 5th Columnists, those who have been indoctrinated and opportunists, we see the situation where we are today.

    Perhaps our people will be lucky and -somehow- be able to form ethno states in the US, Canada, Brazil and Australia. If so we will require those like Bill and KMac in leadership positions. Lastly, the article’s mention of bread is vital. I have donated to AmRen for decades, while buying and distributing books from our intelligentsia. If a significant number would do the same there would be great advancements, harmony and justice for our people. We need to stop Brother Wars and unnecessary conflict.

    Seceding from the US is not the way to go. What is needed is to take back those areas of the country that have surrendered to the “enemy”. Starting in Idaho (?) a political organization formed for this purpose will radiate outwards until the job is done. If people don’t like it, they can leave the country. I understand Afreaka is underdeveloped and underinvested. Also, there is a small country at the eastern end of the Mediterranean that is looking for immigrants.

    Concurrently, we need tio put an end to those patronizing translation services that our governments at all level offer. We speak English in this country. Period.

    And when we test English for citizenship, let there be no more of those Mickey Mouse
    tests. To become a citizen a person must really have a command of the English language. Such a requirement would be able to guarantee permanently that many people never become citizens. Let’s get serious.

    Finally, let’s put a hold on immigration. Can’t be done? It can if we want it to happen, but we’d better get in it.

      There are pros and cons to both secession and ‘taking America back’, and it is hard to say which is more feasible. I would venture to say though that our enemy/enemies will seek to defeat us not through military might but through financial control. Remember, they hold the purse strings to nearly everyone’s retirement systems, including Social Security.

      Conversely, we can boycott large conglomerates that promote sexual perversion and miscegenation (one in particular comes to mind) and patronize small family businesses run by our own people, even if those small business owners are – for the time being – fence straddling. At the same time, we should seek to build strong barter systems, get out of the big cities, and learn to grow or shoot our own food and have secure water sources.

        They’re not better than us. They just caught us with our guard down.

        They Darwinian processes their bio-warfare agents (Negros, Browns) have unleashed is necessary to cull the wrong genes from the White pool.

        In the meantime, we can continue to fight on every level using every means at our disposal, including community organizing for non-overtly-White issues that put White power advocates in the leadership positions.

        This isn’t our country anymore. We need to take it back. To do that we have to be as sly as serpents and and strong as bulls.

          Good psychology that needs a bit of elaboration .

          The Ashkenazi financial tribe , which is the core of the Rothschild corporate empire , have a significantly higher/better average IQ than do Whites ; and they obviously have vastly greater/better legitimate , as well as illegitimate , financial intelligence than do Whites . Furthermore , presuming that “us” refers to Whites collectively , “us” have been practically (non-vigilant)/(off-guard) no less than for more than a century since the 1913 USA Federal Reserve Act which , as it turns out , gave the tribe an open door to eventually acquire effective monopoly control of money systems worldwide via central banking technologies .

      I’m afraid that your strategy has been an impossibility for at least 50 years now, and it was improbable about 80 years ago. The enemy has diligently wormed their way in to every institution imaginable, and we have no institutional power; just witness the number of corporate logos which were rainbow flags last month, and BLM colors a few months before? The idea that we’ll survive this extremely-advanced cancer, when the patient refuses to even see a doctor, seems naïve, frankly. The entire continent is NOT salvageable, and we’d be lucky if we could sever a small section somewhere, and defend it from the global army that seeks to wipe us from the Earth. South Africa was in a better position to withstand this onslaught, and they failed; if you think you’re going to be able to keep New York and California in the fold, I have a bridge to sell you.

      Trump is a Zionist, and most Evangelicals are Israel First Ziocucks.

Still, this 60% of Ziocucks are rooting for “Trump 2024”, which is almost a idiotic as believing that voting for Federal representatives matters at all anymore; clearly the game has been rigged for decades. Trump accomplished nothing for America that wasn’t undone in a matter of hours after a new POTATO (President Of The Anarcho-Tyranny Oligarchy) was “selected; not elected’ and four more years of him deliberately accomplishing nothing will not reverse the 160 years of damage that these termites have done to the home our forefathers built.

There was no further mention of Judeo-Bolsheviks.

          03 Irving interviewed C’s chauffeur, who told him, that at every air raid alarm on London, C would flee his bunker and head west, only to return after the all-clear, to climb atop bombed rubble to shake his cane towards the sky, at the departed Luftwaffe, shouting revenge and damnation. In front

          04 Once, before reaching his regular safety location to the west, his chauffeur was passed by a local policeman on a motorcycle, who was instructed to inform C that the Luftwaffe had merely overflown London en route to the industrial targets in Coventry.
          05 C ordered his chauffeur to turn around and then went on BBC immediately, as if he had bravely survived in his bunker.
          06 Speaking of the BBC: C was often too drunk to address the nation, at which moment an excellent actor would indistinguishably double for him.

An Allied air, land and sea counterattack against Soviet Russia, assisted by tens of thousands of Wehrmacht personnel, held at the ready for same. Obviously excluding the 50,000 ex-officers he deemed appropriate to be summarily shot; in line with Morgenthau Jr.
          08 Dresden was intended to merely demonstrate to Stalin, that it was now raw air power which decided wars and not Stalin’s 4:1 advantage in tanks, artillery, endless fuel resources, efficient factories and his superior, experienced, Ehrenburg-drugged infantry. All of which could be bombed in their rear, disrupting their front.
          09 The US declined participation in OP UNTHINKABLE, citing their unfinished business in the Pacific. Why would they want to destroy what New York diligently prepared on Dec. 23, 1913, in Congress, [ Warburg’s Fed. ] and finished with WW 1 and the 1917 November revolution ?
          09.1 WW 1 being one of the two deemed essential by the Zionists to create Israel.
          10 The Saint was unquestionably aware of Kim Philby [ of the

          11 In May, 1915, The Saint ordered the withdrawal of regular RN escorts of the hapless LUSITANIA, sacrificing it to a U-Boot, drowning ca. 1200, of whom 10 % were Americans.
          12 The German Imperial Embassy in Washington, had placed notices in 53 US dailies, warning the public, but only three were published; resulting in the desired pro-War effect. .

          14 I forget whether Irving discovered said letter among Bruening’s papers left to an affiliated US university , or in the National Archives. [ The two WWs, deemed essential prior to the creation of Israel ].
          15 Allegedly, nowhere in his voluminous WW2 works, does he refer to the holocaust.

          17 Sufficient reason for Chief Jewish Criminal Russian Oligarch Berezovsky to celebrate his 60th birthday there, of course black tie; attended by 200. Including the disgusting, transparently fraudulent Bill Browder, who talked man-child
          Sen. McCain into legislating the self-serving, multinational Magnitsky Act.
          18 The center piece at said Blenheim party was an ice sculpture of Red Square’s St. Bazil’s Cathedral, smothered in Beluga caviar. Churchill, born here, wad defeated and the eventual new masters were partying on his corpse.

      Yes , it can be rationally grasped .

      The vast majority of Westernworld Whites are at least nominal Christians and remain thoroly Christianized where their religion on net does not give theological nor pragmatic support for White ( EuroMan / Aryan / European / Indo-European / Caucasian ) racial integrity/consciousness . Consequently , that absence of vital socio-religio-political support for maintaining a robust White cultural genome is seen as a
      “deep sickness of the soul and a moral rot”. The damage has been done .

        I recently discovered a 1949 book entitled The Crime of Our Age, by Dr. Ludwig A. Fritsch, a German-American theologian. It is one of the rare books I know of by a Christian who defended whites, and Germans in particular. He quoted Catholic Bishop Aloisus J. Muench who wrote, “The forced migration of millions of peoples is the greatest crime of this age. There is nothing in all history to equal it except perhaps the fact that there is neither an outcry against these atrocities by the people of other nations nor any actions by governments with power to take it.!” (Of course since 1949 many more atrocities have become known.)
        Fritsch wrote that “Germany was “the protector of Christianity and the white race….Germandom was for more than a thousand years the bulwark against the Asiatics. German blood ran in streams through the centuries in order to defend the West against the East.” I don’t know this history so can only quote him.
        Fritsch sent free copies to the president, all Congressmen, many government officials and “other key personalities.”
        The dedication was to the “Christian people of America, In the firm belief that the truth will arouse them to action.” It is sad to see that his trust was evidently misplaced, unless there was a reaction that was subsequently memory-holed.
