The Death Of A Nation

Authored by James George Jatras via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Every living nation needs symbols. They tell us who we are as one people, in what we believe, and on what basis we organize our common life.

This fact seems to be very clear to the current leadership in Russia, particularly to President Vladimir Putin, in restoring and reunifying a country rent by three generations of Red and White enmity to achieve a national synthesis. With regard to things spiritual, this meant first of all the world-historic reunification of the Russian Orthodox Church, between the Moscow Patriarchate and the New York-based Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. It also meant the rebuilding of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior dynamited by the communists 1931, not coincidentally the recent target for desecration by degenerates hailed by western «democracy» advocates.

Civic and military symbols matter as well. After 1991 there were those who wanted landmarks of the communist era to be ruthlessly expunged the way the Bolsheviks had themselves sought (in Solzhenitsyn’s description) to rub off the age-old face of Russia and to replace it with a new, ersatz Soviet image. Instead, wisdom prevailed. The national anthem adopted in 2001 retains the Soviet melody but with new lyrics (written by Sergey Mikhalkov, who with Gabriel El-Registan had penned the original lyrics in 1944!) – Lenin and Stalin are out, God is in. The old capital is again Saint Petersburg, but the surrounding district still bears the name Leningrad. The red star marks Russia’s military aircraft and vehicles, while the blue Saint Andrew’s cross flies over the fleet. The red stars likewise are still atop the Kremlin towers while the Smolensk icon of Christ once again graces the Savior Gate. The red banner that was hoisted triumphantly on the Reichstag in 1945 is carried on Victory Day. The remains of exiled White commanders like Anton Denikin and Vladimir Kappel were repatriated and reburied at home with honor.

I may be wrong, but I would like to think that perhaps Russia took a lesson from what until recently had been the American example. In his Second Inaugural Address in March 1865, as the «brothers’ war« was drawing to a close, Abraham Lincoln spoke of the need to «bind up the nation’s wounds». In striving to do so, nothing was more important than our honoring the heroes of both the Blue and the Gray, perhaps most poignantly demonstrated decades later in the veterans’ reunions at Gettysburg. «Unconditional Surrender» Grant and «Marse Bobby» Lee, «Uncle Billy» Sherman and «Stonewall» Jackson, naval legends David «Damn the torpedoes» Farragut and Raphael «Nelson of the Confederacy» Semmes, cavalrymen «Fightin’ Phil» Sheridan and J.E.B. Stuart, and many, many others – these names belong to all of us. As Americans.

To say this is not to avoid the centrality of slavery in the southerners’ attempted secession or to address the constitutional question of whether they were legally entitled to do so. (Maybe California will have better luck heading for the exit. ¡Adios, amigos!) Nor does it sugarcoat white southerners’ perception of Reconstruction as a hostile, armed occupation or of the institution of Jim Crow racial segregation after federal troops were withdrawn and the Democratic Party assumed power. But the fact is that the mythos of North-South reconciliation in a reunited American nation was a foundation of our becoming an economic giant by the late 19th century, a world power at the beginning of the 20th (at the expense of the decrepit Spanish empire, with the celebrated military participation of former Confederates), and a dominant power after two victorious world wars.

That America may soon be gone with the wind. The violence at Charlottesville, the pulling down of a Confederate memorial by a mob in Durham, the removal of four monuments from Baltimore (which has one of America’s highest homicide rates) under the cowardly cloak of night, and calls for getting rid of many more are simultaneously the death throes of the old America built on one national concept and the birth pangs of a new, borderless, multiethnic, multilingual, multireligious, multisexual, ahistorical, fake «America» now aborning in violence and lawlessness.

He who says A must say B. When one accepts demonization of part of our history and placing those who defend it beyond the pale of legitimate discourse, one should hardly be surprised when the arrogant fury of the victors is unleashed. That takes two forms: the nihilist street thugs of «Antifa» and «Black Lives Matter», and the authorities (both governmental and media, a/k/a the Swamp) who confer on them immunity for violent, criminal behavior. The former are the shock troops of the latter.

They’ve been at it for months, well before Charlottesville, across the country, with nary a peep from the party that supposedly has uniform control over the federal government. Our First Amendment rights as Americans end where a black-clad masked thug chooses to put his (or her or indeterminate «gender») fist or club. To paraphrase U.S. Chief Justice Roger Taney in Dred Scott, loyalists of the old America have no rights which the partisans of the new one are bound to respect. Where’s the Justice Department probe of civil rights violations by this organized, directed brutality? (Or maybe there will be one, including looking into George Soros’s connection. If not, what’s the point of having RICO?)

To be sure, the spectacle of genuine racists on display in Charlottesville provided the perfect pretext for these people, but they’re not the cause. Far from forestalling the violent, revolutionary abolition of the historic America (definitively described by Pat Buchanan) by inciting some kind of white backlash – perhaps in the form of a race war as some of them despicably hope – the «Unite the Right» organizers at Charlottesville have accelerated the revolution. It’s a revolution that dovetails with the anti-constitutional «RussiaGate» coup in progress against President Trump, who is the last hope for preserving the historic American nation. If he is removed (is he the only one, even in his own Administration, fighting back?) and the nice respectable anti-Trump Republican party is restored, they’ll gladly join hands with their Democratic and media Swamp buddies in dragging what remains of America down.

If anyone is tempted to think that the new America will be more peaceful in world affairs, think again. It’s no coincidence that the same forces that want to bring Trump down and also redefine our country’s identity coincide almost entirely with those who want America aggressively to impose «our values« – meaning their values – on the globe. As I put it almost 20 years ago in a somewhat different context, this fake «America» is the vanguard of Rainbow Fascism, at home and abroad.

No doubt the same terrible sense of foreboding, even worse, must have occurred to Russians in 1920, when they saw their country bloodily sacrificed on the altar of a crazed, internationalist ideology. Somehow, after paying an unimaginable price in war and repression, they emerged three quarters of a century later still remembering how (as the late General Aleksandr Lebed put it) «to feel like Russians again».

If we fail to avoid the impending long night, will we Americans be so lucky?

The solution is to not let Antifa demonstrate if they have masks on................that will end it because most of them are paid and they don't want to be identified with face recognition technology............

Antifa won't bring down the government.  They will only attempt to restore the government back to its path to totalitarianism.  The deep state sets up these clashes not so much to start a revolution, but to take away more rights.  We need to remember, and remind the cucks in DC, we already have enough laws in place to deal with violence.  And it is unconstitutional to mess with free speech.   Enough problem, reaction, solution bullshit.

If anything has demonstrated that the government is already captured by the Deep State it has been the last 8 months! There's no need to bring it down, it is already, functionally, theirs. Antifa is a body without a brain or ability to sustain itself. They are Useful Idiots unwittingly animated by the same globalist Deep State and their attack dogs, the NGOs who provide handlers to egg them on and finance them. They are a paid mobile Leftist tantrum incapable of much beyond yelling expletives, breaking windows, and throwing petrol bombs. They are feckless cowards, 99% will fill their pants and run at the first sign of real danger.

Worry about NATO and UN troops on US soil. THESE will be the guns that I believe will be used against flyover country (to bring down the racist, xenophobic, homophobic Alt-Right insurgency) and finalize the coup. The functional core of the military, the police, and National Guard will be too concerned about preserving the kabuki, status quo provided by the 24/7 MSM and the Fed and their paychecks to stand up when the time comes. Dark days ahead...

The US is fucked. Civil War is baked into the cake. It is unavoidable. The Demographic changes since 1965 ensure it. Once there is a none white majority the Democrats will have a permanent majority faction and next stop is S. Africa in the US. The white majority can see what's going on now so if they assasinate Trump or remove him in a soft coup the Goyim will revolt. If by some miracle Trump survives or Pence takes over the white working class won't tolerate another Marxist like Obama by the next election anyway let alone an open borders Cuckservative neo con like McCain or Bush. The left is already prepared and conducting a soft insurgency to prevent the white majority from reducing immigration and consolidating political power again.I always figured we had another 10 or 15 years but it's looking more like 5-10. If you're white and in the big cities you need to get out, get in shape and get armed right now.

Putin is the national symbol for the majority of ZH readers.  He is so fucking awesome that even simple awesomeness pales compared to him.I really think that Putin can unite America.  Everyone will kind of have to learn russian though, but who gives a shit.  I'd like to see the faces of the Red Dawn actors, bet you they did not see this shit coming....  he he he

Classic riots pick an enemy and blow off steam.People in misery, no future, unemployed and so on....get angry frustrated. Logical.The robbery of US 95% lowest income is bottom line.To blame is Deep state and politicians....

As a corollary:  The fact that neither Obama or either of the Clintons has come out and tried to help calm the situation demonstrates exactly what is going on here.   The Syria miscalculation didn't stick, nor did the double time healthcare imapasses, nor the investigations into everyone under the sun  appointed as an advisor or cabinet member or ever considered for an appointment , nor did the Russian allegations,  N. Korea left the stage as quickly as it came on it, so now this.  There's more than one way to effect a coup and the Democrats, the Deep State, & the monied elite are working their little tails off in hopes that one of their plots will actually work.

The answer is simple. Arrest anyone covering their face at these riots.But the police won't do it because they are both afraid and have been told not to do that.

As those who killed JFK and MLK committed 9/11, promote illegal immigration, and did Ruby Ridge, Waco, and OKC are still walking around drawing government pay, the cops are corrupt.Scholarship proves NYPD - who for pensions and power have allowed their own brethren's blood sacrifice on 9/11 by pederasts Bush and Cheney, Mossad and the JFK-assassinating CIA/FBI/NSA Vatican agents - a branch of Organized Crime for over 200 years as the Anti-Christ's Fasces, antithetical to our "whig" utopian ideals, were woven into the NY National Guard's symbolism as Rome's Fifth Column made its beachhead up from Baltimore.From there to the front wall of the U.S. House following their assassination of President Lincoln by the followers of pedophile priests at St. Paul's on Capitol Hill and the pope's proxy army built on Irish cannonfodder now known to have been purposefully starved to push here, as illegals now are from all over Latin America's molested shithole, to take our jobs and our divine sovereignty.Rome and Islam both worship Satan and rape babies and kids. America's named Sovereign is God Almighty, the Creator of the universe; and the source of all LGBTQ abomination, baby and child rape, gets a bullet if caught in the act.It's the pedo homos who want our guns. Australia's fag politicos keep their gay lovers in America, taken over by the Knight of Malta-led Roman Catholic perverts of the CIA, like "Muslim" Brennan, during Vietnam. And American "men" tolerate having all these fags and false-Jews cry out for our straight God-fearing anti-Deep State president's scalp?No, by God.Time to start rounding up Rome's Rothschild(Soros/Rosenstein)/Rockefeller(Bush/"Truesdale" Mueller/Clinton/Obama) traitors to stretch rope at Ft. McNair following full expropriation and due process.Death for Treason: that will bring us together as One People under One God ruled only by One Creed - Truth and Justice for all. God made America great and God will keep America, now and forever, the only "new nation" "into which all nations of the world flow" "ruled only by Truth and Justice under God alone": the biblically prophesied "Zion," the New Israel, the Beast of (((Gog))) and Babylon now usurping us finally cast down, praise God.

By all of Isaiah's given signs only America is "Zion," elaborated in Ezekiel 38:11: soon to be free of the Fifth Column Beast of (((Gog))) and Babylon, long besetting us, praise God.The Risen Babylon shall then "fall in a day" as foretold.There is only One God - America's King.This is the Apocalypse, Donald Trump its anointed Harbinger.

You are the idiot. It you think you have to admire any of the puppets put before you (and yes, Trumps is a puppet too (like Obama and the Clintons) – he’s a “FIAT”-billionaire = he is more dependent on the Ponzi/status quo than anyone. Plus, he is a small fish. He has owners too). You should wake up and realize change will never come from the corrupt institutions of fascist USA. Only a real popular revolution/a dismantling of the illegitimate concentration of power will change anything (to the better). That is: down with the FED, the MIC, the FIRE-sector/the real parasites, the propaganda industry (MSM and the alphabet soup), the DEMS/REPS (minions of the Deep State/bought and paid for) etc. etc. “Believing” in anything you see on TV is being idiotic (and yes, that includes FOX). The revolution will not be televised. If you see it in the news it is not important but part of the theatre. Trump is playing his role…
