Jack Trotter wrote and interesting review of Jared Taylor’s latest book in the August edition of Chronicles and which he showed some skepticism of what he believed was Taylor’s lean towards white identity politics and white cultural grievance the kind exhibited by Cultural Marxists. While I agree with the latter, I think we would naive enough to think the former hasn’t already begun. Sarah Palin is an example of such politics as was “Joe the Plumber” as far back as 2008 and the Tea Party to a certain extent in 2010 were all examples of such politics.
However, with whites a minority by mid-century, zero-sum “all-vs.-all” politics as Taylor correctly envisions in my view still works against them, because any candidate for President who can fashion multi-racial coalition (indeed, not all whites are going to play identity politics) is going to be the winner as Obama was.
For those (non-racist) white nats’ or other such voters who vote along such lines and social begins without necessarily being politically concious, look for success will ahve to come at he local level. Which is why it is important U.S. politics must be separated, having a national sphere and a local sphere.
Canada is a country which has such politics. The Tories who rule Canada would be a centrist bunch if view through an American prism, but conservative enough by Canadian standards. They’re also a multi-racial, having support in various immigrant communities in Canada, especially Asian. That’s the kind of politics which works on the national level in Canada. A much harder-Right party was tried with the Reformers and the Alliance and failed miserably. This does not mean more conservative politics are a failure in Canada. It just means they are practiced at the local level in places like British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
If not Canada why not the U.S.? Why can’t a candidate like Ron Paul be successful on the national level while candidates of the kind of white identity politics Taylor envisions be successful locally in places where whites predominate, (especially in the empty corners which could easily be filled by white nats’?) Obviously this would be a difficult undertaking considering how nationally focused politics is, but it would be a worthy one in order to form a workable political framework for the new realities of the 21st Century.
