We want a whole MAR (movement), not just a half

In the entry on “The return of Sam Francis: MARs rising?”, I commented:
I have to clarify that the “tea-party” movement has only some elements of a MARs movement, not all. It is responding to economic threats, statist threats. But it’s not responding to national and cultural threats. Conservatives have never organized on this level. There is a galaxy of conservative and grassroots organizations in this country addressing a myriad of issues. There has never been a single conservative organization whether in Washington or at the grass-roots devoted to opposing multiculturalism and the de-Europeanization of America. As long as the tea-party movement is only on size of government and taxes, and not culture, it’s not a real MARs movement as Sam Francis would have understood it.


The title of this entry is based on Bob Dylan’s “Sweetheart like You”:

Well, I once knew a woman who looked like you
She wanted a whole man, not just a half.
She used to call me sweet daddy when I was only a child
You kinda remind of her when you laugh.
In order to deal in this game, gotta to make a Queen disappear
It’s done with a flick of the wrist.
What’s a sweetheart like you doin’ in a dump like this?
