Special Notices to All Who Deny Two-Seedline, Part 16
Melissa and I leave for Ohio in the morning, hoping to see Clifton Emahiser complete his physical therapy so that we may relocate him to Florida. Clifton seems to be in good spirits and is looking forward to the move and to having our company.
Here in our Bible studies I would not normally offer a summary of things I have said in a Saturday program which mostly concerns recent political and social issues. But on this occasion, to begin with such a summary may be appropriate.
Last week, presenting our recent program In the Wake of Charlottesville, I began with a discussion of the historic basis in America for what is now called White Nationalism. Now let me state that when I use the term nationalism I am referring to a strictly ethnic nationalism and not any false so-called civic nationalism. Ethnic nationalism is the only valid form of nationalism, and civic nationalism is entirely artificial, unnatural, and can only be enforced by tyranny. It is empiricism and not nationalism at all.
So I began by explaining that the American Union was first founded for the benefit of a particular group of White and Christian men and for their posterity, meaning their descendants. That fact alone demonstrates that this Union was originally intended to benefit one particular race of people exclusive of all others. Then I explained that when that element of the Union was undermined following the War of Northern Aggression, even some of the Yankee states had refused to ratify the constitutional amendments which facilitated such a treachery. Later, speaking of more recent events, I showed that even within the last decade modern international courts and treaties recognized the rights of a people to self-determination based upon “traditions and culture, ethnicity, historical ties and heritage, and a sense of identity or kinship”, among other things.
As I had also explained last Saturday, I did not make such a presentation because I think that we are going to achieve justice based on the ideals expressed by governments, but rather, I wanted to demonstrate the hypocrisy of the current liberal establishment, which only a few years ago bombed a certain European nation to uphold those very ideals which White Nationalists espouse today. The world is hypocritical. We must understand that we have no political solution. But my purpose was to show that Nationalists do indeed stand on principles which have been recognized throughout history.
So I made that presentation with the purpose to demonstrate some of the historical basis for Nationalism. It is only with an understanding of that basis that we can realize just how far the world which we now perceive through the media has departed from historic norms. But the world was not always perceived as we now perceive it.
