On Christianity and the Race-conscious Right
This brief e-mail exchange on the race-conscious right’s need for Christianity, and the reasons why many on the right are currently anti-Christian as well as anti-Jewish, may be of interest:
My own desire is to have a race-conscious movement that is moral and civilized and that confronts the current liberal orthodoxy on the basis of principle, not animus. Part of being moral and civilized is understanding that race is only a part of the picture. For some on the racialist right, race is the main thing or the only thing, so I part company with them on that. Also, being moral and civilized means being free of anti-Semitism, which I distinguish from rational and legitimate criticism of Jews.
This, I think, is at the crux of any budding race-conscious and racial-realist movement. How to combine a sense of morality to balance and anchor an awareness of these issues? Carol Swain makes the good point that as a result of the liberals sweeping these issues under the rug, white nationalists are left debating each other, or, as she puts it, “extremists egging each other on” to see who can out do each other the most.
My own belief is that a return to the West’s traditional notions of Judeo-Christian morality is the anchor the movement needs. This is obviously controversial among some racialists who are atheists, agnostics, or even Odinists and pagans. They see Judaism as an inherently destructive force on the West (and for genetic reasons to boot) and that Christianity (in a Nietzchean view) as the weak step-sister of that religion, further contributing to the West’s decline.
We’re in agreement on the need for traditional religion and morality as the necessary basis for conservatives to deal with the problem of racial diversity. Given how antiwhite and anti-Western organized Christianity has become, the growing anti-Christian attitudes on the racialist right are perfectly understandable. But in rejecting Christianity, racial realists fail to understand that Christianity is going through exactly the same crisis as the rest of the West. The white race is currently liberal, delusional and suicidal, just as the Christian churches are, yet I haven’t noticed race-conscious whites turning against the white race. So why are they turning against Christianity? I believe it’s because many of them are atheist materialists who want to get rid of transcendent morality. But that would be the death of the West, and of the white race along with it.
