While I strongly agree with the correct, if hardly original, comment about “changing demographics” condemning the GOP’s electoral chances (though it’s unfortunate that at CHRONICLES the issue of RACE needs to be discussed in cute euphamisms, and that the website excludes those who speak about it forthrightly, even when without epithets or vulgarities), I find it a bit odd directed at Hanson. I’m not a Hanson supporter, though I read one of his history books and thought it pretty much as scholarly as the productions of the CHRONICLES intellectuals. But Hanson did write a book called MEXIFORNIA, which I have not read, but was able to infer, from the many reviews of it I did read, advocated greater border security, and was at least mildly hostile to continuing mass legal immigration.

As I have said on earlier posts, Obama will be a formidable opponent, but, while I wrote in the name of Ron Paul on Election Day, he was clearly the superior choice for Middle Americans (not that anyone is excused for having voted for him, especially in those states where victory was clearly projected to be lopsided for a candidate; I, too, was disappointed by the low third party vote). John “Amnesty” McCain, and his best Senate friend, Lindsay Graham, are the two most repulsive GOP national politicians. They are wrong on nearly every issue, particularly the most important ones: stopping the non-white invasion, colonization and conquest of America, and keeping our country out of needless foreign conflicts. The Democrat party is the party of non-white domestic political imperialism, and freakish leftism, and as there are multitudes of such people, ALWAYS will be. Suggesting that some conservatives should fight within the Democrat party is far beyond
merely idiotic. MARs, or really, white preservationists and American patriots, have no choice but to conquer the GOP, and turn it for our purposes (though if and when we do, we damn well better use it for the Right things – focusing on racial preservation in ALL its aspects, from ending the invasion, to rejecting foreign wars for Israel, preserving guns rights, and slashing interracial wealth transfers – and not waste our time on the routine, ephemeral nonsense that does nothing for our people’s cause, like “family values”, or improving the (minority predominant ) public schools, or stopping abortions (2/3 of which are performed on women of color, thank goodness, and praise be to the great Margaret Sanger!)). If we were to have had any hope of accomplishing that task, the defeat of the Third Bush Term was vital (what a shame, though, that Graham was reelected, and in the process defeated a more conservative Democratic candidate).

I agree, though, that Obama/Pelosi is indeed laying the groundwork for a great GOP populist reaction, but that will only come about if serious conservatives develop a national strategy around issues of white preservation, albeit without justifying those policies in overtly racialist terms (that will come later, a few decades hence). Anti-immigrationism, foreign policy isolationism, protection of property and the free market (which favors whites), expressed particularly in opposition to taxes, and serious confrontation on affirmative action and multiculturalism: these are the issues on which to build a great movement, one both politically successful as well as useful in light of the ultimate goal of every true conservative, namely, saving Western civilization from eclipse, and the white race which created and alone can sustain that civilization, from biological extinction or extermination..

As to the social “conservatives”, who have been nearly as much of a plague as the neocons, let us extend our hand of friendship, pay lip service to their concerns, and roundly ignore and marginalize them. Our future rests with the Racial Right, properly coded (eg, vdare.com for now, AMERICAN RENAISSANCE presently, as whites intensify their growing, collective racial awakening).

From Mises blog:

 

I am a long-time follower of Mises, Rothbard, and the rest of the Austrians, and believe their economics is correct, even if ‘radical’ by conventional standards. Their politics is quite another matter. There is nothing philosophically dispositive about libertarianism, however persuasive Misesian praxeology. One can be an Austrian without worshipping the Market God (as so many on this site do), or exalting homo economicus to some privileged position above all other human types and aspirational categories.

These truths are always brought home to me whenever libertarians idiotically start pontificating on areas about which they so often either are clearly ignorant, or otherwise blinded by ideology. Foreign policy is one such area. While I share much of the libertarian critique of imperialism and the threat it has historically posed to domestic liberty and tranquility, a nation’s security interests can hardly be satisfied simply with endless reiterations of “do nothing”. If many libertarians had their way, national defense would be reduced to civilian militias, desperately hoping that a non-interventionist foreign policy of peace and free trade with all, entangling alliances with none, would somehow so charm the rest of the planet that no hostile powers, coveting the immense wealth of our desired retro-capitalist system, would emerge to threaten us. The naivete of this view, in a world of predatory states and nuclear weaponry, is mind-boggling, evincing the
complete triumph of obsessional ideology over any awareness of history and the really existing world order.

Immigration is another area of libertarian utopianism and flight from reality. I’ve enjoyed many of Robert Murphy’s articles, but if he is serious that we should allow UNRESTRICTED immigration (his usage @#9 above), then I must call into question the value of all of his earlier work that I had thought was enlightening. Throwing open America’s already hemmoraghing borders, an act of world-historically pathological stupidity, would result in the virtual overnight extirpation of the United States, the literal foreign conquest of America. Does Murphy have ANY understanding of: 1) evolutionary biology; 2) the history of interethnic relations; 3) global demographics; 4) international wealth disparities; 5) infectious disease epidemiology; 6) the American welfare state structure; 7) American anti-discrimination law;  8 ) geopolitical relations; 9) military security issues; or 10) American ethnographic electoral patterns, and political realities? In a word,
outside of some tiny specialty in Austrian economics, does Murphy have any knowledge of any discipline relevant to formulating immigration policy? In advocating “open borders” the answer is, embarrassingly not.

Immigration is the great disaster of our time, not just for traditional Americans, who are losing their country to this peaceful invasion, but for liberty, too. Immigration strengthens the hand of government in dozens of ways, but I will emphasize just one. 99% of immigrants are racial ‘minorities’. Here is the racial minority vote for Obama in 2008 (admittedly, I wrote-in Ron Paul, but third party voting is still rare; the vast bulk of pro-private property voters are registered Republicans): blacks 95%, Hispanics about 70%, Asians 62% (and Jews, incidentally, voted 81% for Obama). These electoral demographic imbalances have been remarkably stable over the past four decades. Why would we want to increase the numbers of minority voters ten-fold virtually overnight?

Open immigration would spell the immediate end of private property and the free market in America, and usher in an era of total wealth confiscations for old-stock Americans. Advocating such destruction is not funny or “tongue-in-cheek” ; it is treasonous (and per Hoppe, it is not even libertarian, at least not necessarily so).

If Mr. Murphy and other libertarians indeed wish to emerge from their little ideological ghetto, and have their views (at least the correct ones, those dealing with the economy) taken seriously by sober men, they need to jettison their non-economic nonsense. Note that the one libertarian doing something in the real world, Rep. Ron Paul (Republican), is staunchly opposed to the immigration invasion, and wants are borders sealed, not cast aside.
