National Press Club Hosts White Nationalist Event

By Arthur Goldwag on September 11, 2011 - 10:53 am, Posted in White Nationalism

Friday, September 9, 2011, at 1:30 pm sharp, in the wood-paneled precincts of National Press Club, the National Policy Institute’s press conference begins. The occasion is the release of its report “The Majority Strategy: Why the GOP Must Win White America.” Most of the 100 or so seats are taken; surprisingly enough, given the provocative topic, only one non-white face is in evidence.

The National Policy Institute presents itself to the world as a think tank along the lines of the Heritage Institute or the Brookings Institution. But as tweedy as its representatives may seem, its Mission Statement reveals that it has a great deal in common with groups who wore very different sorts of costumes to their meetings—which were often held by torchlight.

America is neither “based on a creed” nor “derived from a proposition,” its Statement of Principles declares, but is rather “the unique and irreplaceable product of centuries of specific racial, historical, and cultural identities.” That identity is white and European and can endure “only so long as the identities that created it and sustain it endure.” In short, “the perfectibility, let alone the equality, of man is not possible and is not a legitimate political aspiration. Political efforts to achieve or enforce perfectibility and equality invariably demand an unacceptable degree of coercion and result in unnecessary and unjust pain, suffering, and social disorder.” Most of that pain and suffering is felt by white people, which is why the National Policy Institute (NPI) calls itself “the right’s answer to the Southern Poverty Law Center.”

NPI’s executive director Richard Spencer, the author of the report, spoke first; he was followed by James Edwards, the host of the premier white nationalist radio show, Political Cesspool, and author of Racism, Shmacism, and Jared Taylor, whose newest book is White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century. VDARE’s Peter Brimelow was an announced speaker, but had been detained by a family emergency.

The gist of NPI’s report is that the Republican Party is already “effectively the White People’s Party,” with 90 percent of its votes cast by whites. A winning strategy would be to “reach in” to its majority base rather than “reach out” to minorities. Instead of shirking its identity the GOP should embrace it by advocating immigration restriction, an end to civil rights and hate crime legislation, and to all forms of affirmative action.

In the broader view, if America is allowed to become a white minority country, conservativism will lose its meaning, as there will be no country left to preserve. On the pragmatic side, why can’t Republicans see that restricting immigration will reduce their rivals’ constituency? By embracing the false ideal of an inclusive multiculturalism, they are insuring not only their own political destruction but the destruction of their whole civilization. Would India allow the Japanese to elect its leaders? Would Han Chinese allow South Carolinians to elect theirs? Then how can Republicans sit by and allow non-white Americans, who don’t’ even identify with white American values, to re-elect Barack Obama? If they don’t wake up, they will “become like the Whigs of old and end up in the ash can of history.”

Taylor and Edwards both hammered home the theme that white people’s greatest liability is their fear of being called racists. Non-whites and liberals have no such compunctions: they hate whites and white culture; by not standing up for their own interests, whites are hastening the day when they’ll become a hated minority themselves. Not that minorities are hated today—far from it. They’re coddled and pandered to and are the recipients of billions of wasted dollars of largesse. It’s natural to look after one’s own interests, they say. They do it. Why aren’t we?

The Q&A was brief but had a few telling moments. When asked why Republicans refuse to recognize their own interests, Sam Dickson rose from the audience and declared that John McCain had been selfish and anti-social all his life; Richard Spencer noted that Democracies tend to “self-select sociopaths” to govern themselves. When a member of the audience asked how they reconcile individualism with the return to tribalism that they seem to espouse, Jared Taylor explained that individualism is a white Protestant value and that the only way to protect it is to preserve the white Protestant tribe. America is not a proposition nation, Taylor pointed out; its essential identity comes from blood and soil.

When someone asked if it wasn’t true that brainy immigrants help keep us competitive in technology, another member of the audience put in his own two cents. “I was in Silicon Valley in the ‘80s,” he said, “And let me tell you, there weren’t a lot of Asians there. And the Asians that were there were just average engineers. We landed on the moon without immigrants. We don’t need them.” Spencer pointed out that while there is scientific evidence that Asians in fact excel at abstract reasoning, it is European whites who invent great things.

When the lone African American in the room rose to ask a question, the panel fell all over themselves to assure him that they don’t hate minorities. Blacks enjoy a higher standard of living in the US than they do anywhere else in the world; why isn’t there more gratitude?

“There is no hatred in my heart,” Edwards declared. “All we want is the freedom to associate only with our own kind, to not be forced to deal with you,” Taylor reassured him. “Private discrimination, the ‘refusal-to-deal,’ is a recognized legal principle.”

    Hey Iludium, yeah, that sounds like something the Afrikaner Nationalists would have said, all right… these racist idiots can never come up with anything original, can they?

    They’re too dumb.

    The National Press Club has Tweeted the following Important Clarification to this item:

    @iludiumphosdex This was not a @PressClubDC event. The group rented out one of our rooms to hold this event. We support 1st Amend rights.

    Meanwhile, tell me the following isn’t essentially a rehashing of Afrikaner Nationalist platitudes which were invoked to excuse apartheid (t/n Christian Nationalism):

    America is neither “based on a creed” nor “derived from a proposition,” its Statement of Principles declares, but is rather “the unique and irreplaceable product of centuries of specific racial, historical, and cultural identities.” That identity is white and European and can endure “only so long as the identities that created it and sustain it endure.” In short, “the perfectibility, let alone the equality, of man is not possible and is not a legitimate political aspiration. Political efforts to achieve or enforce perfectibility and equality invariably demand an unacceptable degree of coercion and result in unnecessary and unjust pain, suffering, and social disorder.” Most of that pain and suffering is felt by white people …

    Hlodweg,

    What on earth are you talking about? Last I checked, diversity wasn’t edible…

    “America is destined to become a multi racial/ multi ethnic nation.

    So live with it.”

    Hey, I’m all for it. But only if just as long as it would be the white left-liberals that get to eat the diversity (i.e Elin Krantz, Amy Biehl, Kirsten Brydum).

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    ” First, we bring modern technology to stone age peoples (like the American Indians), who in many cases hadn’t even invented the wheel, try to leave them with parliamentary democracy, and then we take the heat when their countries can’t get on their feet after we’ve been gone for five decades.”

    You do realize that Europe gained much of its technology from the Middle East and China, right?

    ” Think about it: fifty years after independence, in American terms, would be 1826. Our Civil War, and the European World Wars, didn’t bring wholesale destruction of our countries’ economies in the same way the Africans, whether in Africa or Haiti, seem to experience; we were able to get back on our feet within a few years.”

    Gee, since every country has exactly the same history, that makes perfect sense!!! Oh wait..

    “As for Mexico before whites came on the scene, ever seen Apocalypto?”

    Ever realize that Apocalypto is a fictional movie?

    ” And don’t blame us for bringing guns or other modern things blacks can’t handle to Africa. It isn’t our fault if we invent something and another people are much more prone to use it for murder.”

    Good thing Europeans learned about the use of gunpowder via their links to China through the Middle East. And who was it who opened the Silk Road again and promoted such trade? Right,Ghengis Khan and his descendents.

    Also, don’t blame black Africans for learning how to use those weapons in a guerrilla war against the white governments then.

    “That’s like blaming us for introducing alcohol to the American Indians. Unfortunate, yes, but are we to blame for their intemperance?”

    Most people don’t cite bringing alcohol as a serious crime against the native peoples. It’s the ethnic cleansing they are more concerned with.

    “And to Matthew: Hey, we may be pure evil, but at least take your own side in the argument. It was James Edwards of The Political Cesspool, a guest at NPI, who covered B4U-Act’s efforts to remove pedophilia from the DSM. Those pedos want liberation too! They just want to be free to flaunt their perversions unharassed by nature-respecting bigots like James and I.”

    That obscure group of pedos can try as hard as they can to get their disorder removed from the DSM- but they will fail. Pedophilia is a paraphilia, homosexuality is not.

    Conclusion: You are a moron, crusader.

  • skinnyminny

    crusader,
    Wow! Isn’t that what Breivik called himself? Well, it doesn’t matter. Now, I will say you are starting to sound a little like Peter King of NY. You know, there’s rumors that he is to address Parliament tomorrow about ‘radicalization.’ Here’s something that may interest you, “anti-Muslim bigot and IRA backer will testify to parliament,” http://hurryupharry.org/2011/0.....arliament/ and hey, wouldn’t you know, this piece alleges that King said that Gerry Adams was like George Washington, and that ‘the IRA was comparable to Nelson Mandela as they were struggling for rights and freedom from British repression and colonization.’ This article also says that the IRA mastered the car bomb – yet, let the anti-muslim crowd in this country tell it, it’s the other way around.

    Now with Haiti, I will ask you, how long have UN troops been in this country? When was the last time the PEOPLE of Haiti was able to elect their own leaders? In fact, what year was the last coup in Haiti? I will also give you a reminder, I can’t recall his name off the bat, but the guy who was a member of the singing group the Fugees, didn’t people in this country (whites) make sure he couldn’t participate as a candidate in the elections by attacking his character, his foundation…all in order to profit from the tragedy themselves. What former president recently and allegedly said that Haiti should have more ‘sweat shops?’ Do you wear Levi’s? Do you know that the clothing you or your significant other and relatives, friends wear come from countries where the people are exploited. If so, then I know for sure where you stand.

    But, back to civilizations unable to make it without white Europeans, you know people have lives before you guys come into their countries and say, “Wow! This is paradise! Unspoiled beauty, peaceful, friendly people, and cheap land/goods, I can become rich!” ***I’ll stop right here, because I’m just laughing too hard as I write this, LOL!

  • crusader

    This just in from Chef Alvin: the facts are now evil hate speech!

    Sigh. While I commend the SPLC for its fair reportage, liberals will just never learn. First, we bring modern technology to stone age peoples (like the American Indians), who in many cases hadn’t even invented the wheel, try to leave them with parliamentary democracy, and then we take the heat when their countries can’t get on their feet after we’ve been gone for five decades. Think about it: fifty years after independence, in American terms, would be 1826. Our Civil War, and the European World Wars, didn’t bring wholesale destruction of our countries’ economies in the same way the Africans, whether in Africa or Haiti, seem to experience; we were able to get back on our feet within a few years.

    As for Mexico before whites came on the scene, ever seen Apocalypto? And don’t blame us for bringing guns or other modern things blacks can’t handle to Africa. It isn’t our fault if we invent something and another people are much more prone to use it for murder. That’s like blaming us for introducing alcohol to the American Indians. Unfortunate, yes, but are we to blame for their intemperance?

    This is about as reprehensible as hosting a convention for the North America Man/Boy Love Association.

    What are these people thinking of?

  • david

    well now we know the republicans’ true colors (no pun intended) and they must be stopped.

    THEY ARE NOTHING BUT PURE EVIL

    You might want to edit for clarity — there are spots like para six where it’s not clear that you are quoting the report.

    Jeronimus,
    just admit it, every country whites touch that are predominantly non-white turn to crap. You don’t want to admit that countries have survived long before whites came in and turned those countries upside down.

    So what, the people may not have the finer things in life, like televisions, cars…but, they have each other, and they believe in hard work – I’m talking about farming without having the latest machinery…

    When the whites came to the Americas, it was the Native Americans that had to show them how to hunt/grow food. It is the Native tribes they depended on to be ‘trackers.’ And the so-called bunjy jumping – what black tribe in the pacific did you guys get that from? The black tribes uses this a rite of manhood!

    Mexico wasn’t that bad of a country, neither was Panama, Cuba, Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua…yes, people were probably poor, a few jail sentences that were/are considered harsh according to our standards, but there wasn’t the drug violence, drug abuse, discrimination based on skin color/racial makeup until whites came into the picture. Oh, let’s not forget, when you look at these countries, they may have their faults, but, when you look at it on a whole, they usually don’t have as many outright psychotic serial killers like that of European countries. When I say serial killers, I’m talking the kind that like to stalk their victims, or prey on their victims. In fact, they are/were not countries where a large part of the population had guns, that is until whites came along, i.e. Libya. Let’s not forget, we trained the Zetas, didn’t we, just like we allegedly partly trained/or at the very least armed the Taliban.

    And for you to call these countries hell holes, I think it is in the interests of people like you to keep up the confusion to keep them busy while the resources are taken out of these countries. It is in the interest of people like you to bring in private security companies, foreign troops to keep the men under control and use rape as a weapon against the women. Notice, white countries are never invaded/colonized/occupied, this only happens to countries where the population are non-whites, also, no matter how much you may dislike a white European leader of a European country, there are never any coup’s (coup d’etat) in these countries – no instead, there’s a chance that what happened to the former IMF chief could happen. I’m not saying the former head is innocent, just sayin’!

    “After all, what is Zimbabwe now, without its white farmers? As Rhodesia, it was civilization; now ruled by blacks, it is a hell hole of ”

    Huuurrrrr, it must be because they are black!! It couldn’t have anything to do with a long protracted war or nothing!

  • Jon Adams

    America is destined to become a multi racial/ multi ethnic nation.

    So live with it.

  • Chef Alvin

    I am disappointed in the National Press Club. Up until Barack Obama ran for President, anyone putting forth this kind of rhetoric would have been ignored or chastised for spewing their evil hate speech. Now the GOP/Tea Party have made this standard fodder for their anti-intellectual base.

    I’d have to sink too low to debunk Jeronimus in language s/he’d understand, so I’ll just invite hir to go back to Stormfront.

    Good report! The NPI speakers, as you reported on them, make perfect sense to me. After all, what is Zimbabwe now, without its white farmers? As Rhodesia, it was civilization; now ruled by blacks, it is a hell hole of savagery.
