Le Pen Starts Strong in French Presidential Run-off

Nationalist candidate Marine Le Pen, who finished second in the first round of the French presidential election, is aggressively campaigning and out-maneuvering her globalist, establishment-supported opponant Emmanuel Macron, Reuters reports:

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen has made a more impressive start than favorite Emmanuel Macron to the last lap of the French presidential election, a poll showed on Thursday.

Macron, tipped in all opinion polls so far to win convincingly against the National Front chief on May 7, has made several potentially costly public relations missteps since they both qualified for the decisive run-off in a vote last Sunday.

…Striking workers jeered Macron, a 39-year-old former economy minister, on Wednesday during a visit to the Whirlpool tumble-drier factory in his hometown of Amiens in northern France after Le Pen unexpectedly turned up there hours earlier and posed for selfie photos with people at the site.

As the French media acknowledged successful one-upmanship by Le Pen, her second-in-command said that she, in stark contrast to Macron, had refused to stand by as firms like Whirlpool sought to shift production out of France to cheaper countries.

…With polls indicating Macron winning with around 60 percent of votes on May 7, he has also taken heat for seemingly acting as if victory were already in the bag.

Rivals and potential allies alike criticized his visit on Sunday night to an elegant Parisian restaurant for celebrations after coming out on top in the first round of voting.

Express reports on a poll shows that 61% of the French think Le Pen is running a successful second round campaign.

This is encouraging news. Le Pen will need a miracle to win, as conservative leaders have sold out France by joining with communists and socialists in an alliance against her.

Racial Reality on Public Transportation in Atlanta

What is it like for a White Baby Boomer who is fully indoctrinated in racial egalitarianism to take the public transportation from his nice, safe White suburb into the heart of Black areas of Atlanta, Georgia? What does he go through inwardly as he witnesses the self-segregation of passengers and the vulgar, off-putting behavior of many Black riders? The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a feature on the experience of one such White Boomer on a MARTA (which the old joke says stands for Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta) train:

I watch as the African-American passengers entering the train look for seats next to other African-Americans, and I watch white passengers seek out other white seat mates. I see the uncomfortable looks of white people who think the black kid dressed like a gang member is going to sit next them, and then the sigh of relief as he passes by.

Mostly, it is then that I notice differences between the people who joined me at my embarkation and the people who have joined in the city. It’s not uncommon for me to watch an impromptu hip hop performance as the train treks south, a performance replete with phrases about violence, sex and race.

Read the entire article. It really gets into the trouble that Boomers experience as their experiences conflict with the liberal indocrination they received through the US media, school system and probably their cucked church.

VA Gubernatorial Candidate Corey Stewart Attacked Over Defense of Confederate Monuments

In the Old Dominion Republican gubernatorial candidate and Prince William County Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart is being attacked in the liberal mainstream media over his strident defense of Confederate monuments. Independent Journal Review writes:

[O]ne gubernatorial candidate named Corey Stewart is trying to make a stand against this trend. Taking a page out of the Trump campaign book, Stewart has been tweeting about the situation in New Orleans seemingly nonstop….

Stewart, who is originally from Minnesota — not Virginia, has seriously picked up some Southern pride while on the campaign trail.

…If you’ve glanced at Stewart’s Twitter account at all, you’ll notice that he really, really, really, wants you to know that he loves the Confederate flag and monuments that honor their leaders and generals.

His stand for Dixie cost him the endorsement of Prince William County’s Black Republican sheriff. Nearly the entire GOP establishment is now against him. He responded, “I don’t care if it wins me support or if I lose support. Defending history is the right thing to do.”

Stewart led a crackdown on illegal immigrants which sparked protests from Left-wing activists and foreigners. The crackdown led to a sharp decline in crime in his county.

He was also Donald Trump’s campaign manager for Virginia before being fired after leading protests against the GOP establishment – which he labeled “establishment pukes.”

The rebel gubernatorial candidate faces an uphill battle. He was at 12% in the polls earlier this month, though all the free press over his stand for Southern heritage may have shifted the numbers since then.

News from Trump Dumpster Fire

Here is the latest news from an administration that has crushed our hopes and dreams over the last month and looks worse by the day.

Rod Rosenstein has been overwhelmingly approved by the Senate as Deputy Attorney General. Call me black pilled, but I have no doubt that our enemies are planning to eventually replace Jeff Sessions with Rosenstein or empower him to undermine Sessions’ agenda. Politico reports:

Rod Rosenstein was confirmed as the second-ranking official at the Justice Department on Tuesday, giving him the reins of the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election after Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal last month.

The Senate backed the veteran federal prosecutor as the nation’s deputy attorney general with a 94-6 vote.

Chuck Schumer, who has called for Sessions to resign, loves Rosenstein. And, of course, the Forward likes him. This sure looks like ethnic politics to me.

Ivanka Trump is pushing for allowing Syrian refugees to enter the USA. I mean, after all, that has worked out so well for Europe. CNN reports:

Ivanka Trump, a top adviser to her father, President Donald Trump, went further than he has when it comes to support for allowing Syrian refugees to enter the US in the face of their country’s ongoing humanitarian crisis.

“I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that’s happening and we have to come together and we have to solve it,” she told NBC in an interview aired Wednesday morning.

…Asked whether that would include opening the borders to Syrian refugees, Ivanka Trump, who formally serves in the administration as assistant to the President, indicated openness.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is pushing for a massive corporate tax cut. Not exactly a populist proposal, to say the least. Politico reports:

The Trump administration will get both “the biggest tax cut and the largest tax reform in the history of our country,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Wednesday, hours before the White House is set to roll out an outline of its tax plan.

…Details of what Trump plans to propose — including slashing the top corporate rate from 35 percent to 15 percent and reducing and simplifying individual rates — have dribbled out over the past couple days. They largely match what he proposed during the presidential campaign, and the early reaction from political analysts and tax experts was that many congressional Republicans wouldn’t accept it.

We will watch what happens on this front but it looks like Trump’s base won’t benefit much from it. Does anyone remember when Trump promised to be the champion of the forgotten man and women from Middle America? That seems like a life time ago.

Conservatives Join Socialists Against Le Pen

European conservative leaders quickly signaled their support for Left-wing front-runner Emmanuel Macron after the first round of the French presidential election. The defeated conservative French candidate, instead of endorsing National Front leader Marine Le Pen (who supports re-establishing France’s sovereignty, fighting Islamic terrorism and halting mass Third World immigration), rushed to endorse Macron (who is a strong supporter of the European Union and replacing the native French population with African and Arab Muslim immigrants). Newstalk reports:

François Fillon was one of the first defeated candidates to endorse Macron, insisting that France must block the National Front from taking power. But Fillon, whose campaign was dogged by accusations of financial impropriety, added: “I’m not doing this with a lightness of heart.”

“There’s no choice but to vote against the extreme right. I will vote in favour of Emmanuel Macron,” Fillon told his dejected supporters.

Former French Prime Minister Alain Juppé, a Republican party colleague of Fillon, also announced he would be voting for the 39-year-old Macron “without hesitation,” seeing the choice as a “duel against the extreme right, which would be a disaster for France.”

Fillon, supposedly a man of the Right, felt he had no choice but to support a Leftist against a Right-wing candidate. Juppé, also supposedly a man of the Right, believed that having a Right-wing president who campaigned on putting the French first in trade and immigration would “be a disaster for France.” So much for the conservative Republicans of France!

How about the governing Christian Democrats of Germany? These are the conservatives who in the last two years welcomed a flood of over a million Muslim illegal immigrants, many of whom turned out to be sexual predators and Islamic terrorists. Deutsche Welle reports that their leaders are much like the French conservatives and eager to back a Left-wing globalist:

German lawmakers across the board have welcomed the victory of pro-Europe candidate Emmanuel Macron in the first round of France’s presidential election on Sunday, calling it a win against nationalism and populism.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, wrote on Twitter: “Good that Emmauel Macron has been successful with his firm course for a strong EU and a social market economy,” and wished Macron “all the best for the next two weeks.”

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has also endorsed Macron. This is not shocking given Le Pen’s criticism of the EU but it does break protocal and show how strongly the establishment is united in opposing nationalists.

As Le Pen has noted, the primary political divide is no longer between the old Left and Right but between globalism and nationalism. And in Europe, just as in the United States, conservative leaders are firmly on the side of globalism, free trade and mass immigration.

LIVE THREAD: French Presidential Election

We are watching closely to see how Marine Le Pen does in the first round of voting today in France following an explosive few weeks of Muslim immigrant terror attacks, National Front campaign HQ bombing and being denounced by the Israeli government. Given all that has happened and the tight race between the top four candidates it is difficult to know exactly where Le Pen stands – but the media seems pretty bullish on her chances.

#LePen on Twitter

According to The Telegraph’s poll tracker globalist Macron is at 24%, followed by nationalist Le Pen at 22%, cuckservative Fillon at 19% and communist Melenchon also at about 19%. If this is the outcome it would send Macron and Le Pen to the second round and be the best ever result for the National Front.

The Telegraph says that “France Resigned – Le Pen May Win.”

The Forward debates “Should France’s Jews Leave if Le Pen Wins Election?”

Forbes writes “In France, if Le Pen Cracks 30% She Could Win it All.”

Fox reports “Marine Le Pen Sees Trump-Like Boost in Support, But Victory Far from Assured.”

The Telegraph says “Marine Le Pen Rides High in France’s Bellweather Town that Always Backs the Winning President.”

The Telegraph reports “Marine Le Pen Leading Race as Polls Open.”

Buchanan: It’s Too Late to Save the USA

Politico, a bastion of establishment-friendly, Leftist commentary, has a surprisingly objective feature article on Patrick Buchanan. One of the pictures that accompanies the article shows him holding a revolver, seated in a chair in front of a portrait of General Robert E. Lee. The entire article is worth reading, for it re-caps Buchanan’s fascinating career and pioneering campaigns that advocated the “America First” platform upon which Donald Trump won the White House last November. It avoids the name calling (racist, xenophobe, bigot, etc.) that characterizes most mainstream political commentary in the USA. And it gives a fair analysis of the paleo-conservative’s rejection of globalism and Third World immigration.

The most interesting part of the lengthy article though is contained in the frank admission that “it may be too late for the nation he was trying to save.” Author Tim Alberta writes of Pat’s view:

[E]ven if Trump delivers on the loftiest of his promises, Buchanan fears it will be too little, too late. Sweeping change was needed 25 years ago, he says, before thousands of factories vanished due to the North American Free Trade Agreement, before millions of illegal immigrants entered the country, before trillions of dollars were squandered on regime change and nation-building.

He’s not unlike the countless Trump voters I met across the country in 2016, many of them older folks yearning for a return to the country of their youth, a place they remember as safer, whiter, more wholesome, more Christian, more confident and less polarized. The difference is that Buchanan refuses to indulge in the illusion that a return to this utopia of yesteryear is even possible. Economically and demographically and culturally, he believes, the damage is done.

“We rolled the dice with the future of this country,” he tells me. “And I think it’s going to come up snake eyes.”

This is what Southern Nationalists and many others of the Alt-Right have been saying for quite some time. We can not go back to the 1950s. Even if all further Third World immigration, both legal and illegal, were halted today – which is not going to happen under even the most positive scenario possibly imaginable – Whites would still become a minority in the USA in the near future. That means that the United States will surely become the sort of Leftist, overtly anti-White state that we all fear. Without dramatic demographic change the USA simply will not survive much longer in any recognizable form.

That is not to say that Trump can’t do good things for us. He certainly can. He can delay our coming minority status, buying us some time. He can help tear down political correctness. He can move people in a more identitarian direction. But ultimately, our salvation as a people and culture lies outside of the current political system. Pat recognizes this. And thankfully Alberta is honest enough to present Buchanan’s views in an objective manner for the public to consider.

Leftists Attempt to Shut Down AfD Congress in Cologne

The radical Left has organized a massive demonstration against the Alternative for Germany party as it holds its congress in Cologne, The Guardian reports:

Thousands of leftist demonstrators have tried to disrupt a gathering of Alternative for Germany (AfD), the rightwing populist party already riven by festering internal rivalries five months before the country’s general election.

About 50,000 demonstrators were expected to mobilise during the two-day AfD party congress in the western city of Cologne, with 4,000 police officers dispatched to keep the peace.

But as the 600 delegates began filing into the congress venue, a hotel in the city centre, demonstrators attempted to block them from passing through security barricades, leading to scuffles with authorities.

One police officer suffered a facial injury, leading to the arrest of a male protester.

Germany has deployed thousands of riot police to prevent the Leftists from attacking AfD supporters and shutting down the congress.

Cologne’s mayor is Henriette Reker, a strong advocate of replacing Germans with Third World immigrants. She was supported by the “conservatives,” libertarians and the Greens in 2015, winning 52% of the vote. Cologne is infamous for the 2016 mass sexual assault by up to 2,000 Muslim immigrants upon German women at a New Year’s festival. Reker blamed the victims for the attack. Cologne has nearly 60,000 Turkish immigrants and at least 120,000 Muslim immigrants in total.

AfD’s leader, Frauke Petry (who is pregnant with her fifth child), recently announced that she will not head the party’s ticket in the September German election. The Guardian reports that nationalists have essentially taken control of the party:

Germany’s Alternative for Germany (AfD) is expected to lurch further to the right at its party conference this weekend after its last self-declared moderates conceded defeat to hardliners, and former members warned that regional branches were being “flooded by the far far right”.

… [T]he party’s transformation into an openly xenophobic, nationalist political group looks complete. On Wednesday, the AfD co-leader Frauke Petry – a former chemist who sees herself as representative of the party’s “realist” wing – announced via a video message on her Facebook page that she would not run as her party’s candidate in the September elections, citing the lack of a coherent strategy and expressing frustration with her party colleagues’ course of “maximum provocation”.

Petry, who presided over a rightward lurch and the ousting of the AfD founder, Bernd Lucke, in 2015 has been fighting a battle to expel the party’s firebrand agitator Björn Höcke over his call for a “180-degree turn” from the postwar tradition of atoning for the crimes of the Nazi era.

But her effort to remove Höcke only ended up shoring up his support and Wednesday’s withdrawal amounts to Petry deserting the stage for a far right takeover.

It will be interesting to watch how the German police handle the Leftist protesters in Cologne – whether they are allowed to riot as in StockholmRotterdam and Berkeley or kept under control as in Auburn. It will also be interesting to see if Höcke emerges as the leader of a more nationalist AfD which can unify ahead of the election in September.

Terror Shooting in Paris, Le Pen & Sunday’s Election

The recent attack by a Muslim immigrant upon police in Paris that left one officer dead has focused Sunday’s presidential election in France upon immigration and security, CNN reports:

The three main candidates canceled campaign events and instead made televised statements in which they competed to talk tough on security and vowed a crackdown on ISIS.

…The far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, demanded the closure of all Islamist mosques. Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve accused her of trying to capitalize on the attack.

…Center-right candidate François Fillon, Le Pen and independent centrist Emmanuel Macron canceled planned campaign events after the shooting. Under French election rules, Friday was due to be the final day of campaigning before Sunday’s first round of voting.

It was unclear whether the attack would tip the balance of the vote in favor of Le Pen, who has vowed to take a tough line on “Islamic terrorism.”

At a televised news conference Friday, Le Pen called for the closure of all “Islamist” mosques in France, the expulsion of hate preachers and the reinstatement of French borders.

People on the French security services’ watch list for radicalization should also be expelled from France and have their French citizenship revoked, she said.

Aljazeera reports that National Front leader Le Pen is deeply unpopular in the non-White suburbs of Paris, home to large numbers of Arab and Black immigrants:

Sevran, with its 50,000 residents, is one of the poorest areas in France, and suffers from high levels of youth unemployment and educational attainment.

Much of its population descends from France’s former colonies in North Africa, West Africa, and Haiti.

Many are also Muslims, perhaps explaining the unpopularity of Le Pen.

Thankfully, the article goes on to state that “voter indifference remains high in the area. We can only hope that Arab and African immigrants do not turn out in large numbers, swaying the election for the Left-wing candidates.

US President Donald Trump essentially endorsed Le Pen, saying in a recent interview that “She’s the strongest on borders, and she’s the strongest on what’s been going on in France…. Whoever is the toughest on radical Islamic terrorism, and whoever is the toughest at the borders, will do well in the election.”

Le Pen has re-focused her campaign in the final week on immigration and security, appealing to the National Front base ahead of the first round of voting on Sunday.

Sessions: June Deadline for Sanctuary Cities

The US Justice Department, headed by former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, has issued a deadline to several major “sanctuary cities” which shield illegal immigrants from deportation. Cities such as Philadelphia, PA risk losing millions of dollars in Federal grants if they do not comply with US immigration laws by June.

Time reports:

Officials in Chicago, New York, New Orleans, the California Department of Corrections, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, and Miami all received letters. [The] Justice [Department] said each had been identified in a 2016 inspector general report as having laws that may violate federal law.

…The letters follow a warning Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued at the White House in March when he threatened to “claw back” federal grant funding for so-called sanctuary cities, or areas where local officials limit their interactions with immigration enforcement. Officials in sanctuary cities often refuse to detain undocumented immigrants simply because they are in the country illegally.

The Trump administration as a whole has taken a hard-line stance on immigration, calling for the speedy removal of criminals while also broadening the levels of crime that could subject someone to deportation. Attorney General Sessions has taken particular aim at sanctuary policies, saying they are linked to spikes in crime and threaten public safety. In a statement on Friday, the Department of Justice said many of the jurisdictions they sent letters to are “crumbling under the weight of illegal immigration and violent crime.”

New York City could lose $4.3 million in Federal grants, according to the article. Perhaps this money could be put directly into a fund building the border wall or deporting Third World immigrants?

This appears to be an issue where the Trump is largely sticking to his campaign promises. No doubt, Sessions is a major force behind the scenes in favor of enforcing immigration laws. Immigration is basically the Alt-Right’s “red line” on Donald Trump and the issue which most animated the Right-wing behind his candidacy last year.

Stan Bush: Official Music of the Alt-South

It is undeniable at this point that Florida rock star Stan Bush is the most popular musician of the Alt-South. Nearly everyone I have met in Alt-South circles is fanatical about Bush’s power anthems about struggle, glory and victory.

In his song “Unstoppable,” Bush writes of rising Southern Nationalists:

We stand together as one, united in our struggle.
Strong as our fate to rise, not fall;
As we head the battle call.
Our father’s have died for flaming sun, thunder and steel, power of will, with spirits of fire

We stand forever in this cause, never turn from trouble.
Bound to defend this land, our home.
We vow to help each other;
We are brothers, bound by blood, body and soul.
We’re taking control

Charlie Stuart of the Appalachian Thistle and Brier podcast says that “Something to Believe” speaks powerfully to his soul. He says he loves the lines “Somewhere in the dark, in a struggle to survive, we search for truth, understand the reasons why.” He likens this to his red-pilling journey on the JQ.

Will Galloway of Identity Dixie says that “Stand In the Fire” will be the theme song of Operation Enslave Vermont:

Your soul is a warrior’s heart
It’s all in the courage that sets you apart
Fury’s wared down and the spirit within
Drives you to victory again and again.

Hunter Wallace gave Stan Bush two big thumbs up and said in an interview for this article, “This is really the only music for Southerners who are ready to take back the Golden Circle!”

Musonius Rufus of the Alt-South’s number one podcast, Rebel Yell, concurred. “We all listen to and love Stan Bush. His songs inspire us to crush the urbanite!” He recommended “Dare” while Wallace thought that “The Touch” should be the theme song of the Alt-South.

New Zealand Strengthens Immigration Laws

The mostly Anglo-Celtic nation of New Zealand has been flooded in recent years with large numbers of Asian immigrants. The White population which stood at almost 92% in 1961 is now down to less than 74% . Thankfully, the rapid change is waking up many people and the government is beginning to respond.

ABC News reports:

New Zealand announced Wednesday that it is introducing tougher requirements for skilled overseas workers as it tries to control immigration numbers that have reached an all-time high.

The changes come a day after Australia said it would scrap a temporary visa for skilled overseas workers and after U.S. President Donald Trump signed an order he said should help American workers whose jobs are threatened by skilled immigrants.

New Zealand’s Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse said in a speech that the government was unapologetic that industries relying on overseas workers are finding it harder to recruit people from abroad.

“We are absolutely committed to the principle of kiwis first,” he said, using an informal term for New Zealanders.

…It is the second time New Zealand has tightened its immigration rules in the past six months and the latest changes come during an election year, when many people have expressed alarm at the immigration rate.

Woodhouse is a member of the conservative National Party. He voted against a 2013 bill which legalized homosexual marriage. He is also the father of three White children.

Le Pen Finishes Campaign with Focus on Immigration

Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has returned to a sharp focus on stopping mass immigration and securing France’s borders as the campaign draws to a close. The National Front leader needs to finish first or second in a crowded field of candidates to qualify for the second round of the election. She has held a small lead in the polls through most of the campaign.

France 24 reports:

Facing a slight slump in opinion polls just one week before the first-round of France’s presidential election, far-right candidate Marine Le Pen has returned to her party’s core issues: immigration and security.

With only five days left before the first round on April 23 (the top two in the first round go through to the decisive second round on May 7), and with opinion polls forecasting a tight race that is barely possible to predict, Le Pen on Monday re-focused her campaign on immigration.

The anti-White media has been black pilled of late – certainly a positive sign. For example, Aljazeera notes the National Front’s strong appeal to young people:

Polling for the first round of the presidential election puts Le Pen on around a quarter of the vote, which would be enough to get her into the runoff, where she currently polls at around 40 percent.

Notably, the largest demographic for National Front support comes from voters aged between 18 and 24, where Le Pen polls at 40 percent.

The Washington Post calls it a “youth revolt” and says that “Marine Le Pen’s hopes of winning the presidency may rest on her appeal among the young.”

The Local predicts Le Pen will win up to 8 million votes based on expectations that she will put the French first, reclaim her country’s sovereignty, enforce the borders and crack down on immigration and crime.

Ossoff Falls Slightly Short, Runoff Ahead

Anti-White demographic trends (brough on by US immigration policies since 1965) in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia have made it possible for a Left-wing Jewish activist to win 48% of the vote in a special election the US Congress.

The New York Times reports:

Mr. Ossoff fell just short of the 50 percent threshold needed to win the seat — he was at 48.3 percent as of 1:48 a.m., with 88 percent of precincts reporting, and he will face Karen Handel, the top Republican vote-getter, in a June runoff.

A documentary filmmaker and former congressional staff member, Mr. Ossoff, 30, had hoped to avert a runoff in the Sixth District, a Republican-dominated section of the Atlanta suburbs that had been represented by Tom Price, who is now Mr. Trump’s health and human services secretary. But despite his financial advantage — Mr. Ossoff had raised $8.3 million, more than quadruple that of the next-closest candidate — and a highly energized liberal base, a majority was just out of reach in a district that has not sent a Democrat to Congress since the Carter administration.

The question now is whether enough non-self-hating Whites in the district will be able to rally behind Karen Handel and defeat Ossoff. The media seems to believe Handel will win but the runoff seems sure to be extremely close.

No matter the outcome of this one congressional race, we are witnessing the impact of demographics upon politics. You can not bring in millions upon millions of people from the Third World and expect for White conservatives to continue to dominate the political system and culture uncontested.

The Evolution of White Supremacy in Carolina (part V)

It should now be clear that our series discusses race relations in South Carolina and more specifically the Lowcountry where the colony was born. This was the region where the plantation culture was imported from Barbados by the English settlers who started the colony. By 1729 the process (which was begun in 1710) of splitting the vast Carolina colony into northern and southern halves was completed.

As we have discussed, the growth of rice cultivation in the Lowcountry spurred an influx of Negro slaves, mostly from the Caribbean in the beginning and later directly from the Dark Continent. This had a tremendous impact upon race relations. It drove the government to pass laws discouraging miscegenation, reserving most skilled trades for working class Whites and forbidding free Blacks from living in the colony. It also provoked leaders to impliment policies encouraging European immigration in order to establish a racial balance which would protect the Whites of the colony from the specter of Black revolt.

Dr. Peter Wood in his book Black Majority: Negroes in Colonial South Carolina from 1670 through the Stono Rebellion (1974) writes about the “deepening white anxiety” as the Black population grew. Wood explains:

As the ratio of white men to women became more balanced with time, one motive for sexual relations between freemen and slaves diminished, and as the size of the Negro population grew, the impetus among Europeans for white offspring increased. From the minority’s point of view, every baby born to European parents “improved” the dangerous racial imbalance, while each child with a white father and a black mother increased the ranks of the slaves and served as a reminder of the Europeans’ precarious social and genetic position.

Dr. Wood goes on to describe a duel system of racial control for the city and surrounding countryside. In Charleston, the Watchmen, a force of 21 men, kept slaves in order and enforced laws preventing them from entering the city on certain days or “to drink, quarrel, fight, curse and swear, and profane the Sabbath.” Outside the capital, the Patrol enforced laws restricting Negroes, making rounds throughout the parishes and going from plantation to plantation. In 1721 these two forces were merged into the militia. From that point on “the local control of slaves in South Carolina rested with military authorities, and from this date as well there began a transformation of the militia ‘from a vital defensive agency to one whose principal duty was the police supervision of slaves.'”

The author, who continually exposes his personal bias on the issue, describes South Carolina as a Spartan-like colony in the making. Even the wealthiest planters were required by law to serve in the militia and support it in maintaining Carolina’s emerging system of White supremacy:

Life within this expanding settlement became increasingly complex, and the tensions which separated slaves and freemen grew increasingly strong. Confronted with different and more acute anxieties about race relations than their forebears or their counterparts in mainland colonies farther north, white Carolinians addressed with increasing directness the question of the Negro’s “place.” The fact that this question had not yet become a tradition, the fact that the answer had not yet been entirely foreordained, made the issue all the more vexing and the need for direct answers all the more intense. The net result was a pattern of controls intended to define with increasing clarity and bluntness the social, economic, and even physical “place” of the black Carolinian.

Of course, the settlers did not think of their African slaves as fellow Englishmen or Carolinians. They were not citizens. They had no natural right to liberty. They were slaves from a primitive, foreign culture who were employed to fill a labor shortage and because their racial traits made them fit for work in the rice fields of the Lowcountry. And due to their numbers they had to be tightly controlled, as on Barbados. Under the direction of Carolinians, their service helped to make the colony in which they lived an extremely prosperous society.

NOTE: I hope OD readers are enjoying this series. I have learned quite a lot preparing for it and have future posts planned from different sources. I realize that Dr. Wood is obviously biased and anti-White. He presents White behavior in the harshest terms and is clearly sympathetic to the Africans. That said, his focus on the methods White people used to control Negroes in Carolina is enlightening. That system changed considerably over time and it is fascinating how those changes took place.

10 Ideas for a Free Dixie, Number 8 Will SHOCK You!

What can you do? Here are some ideas for a free Southern ethno-state or Free Dixie to get the conversation rolling. I have generally tried to avoid LARPing too hard here and instead focused on what could actually be done by normal people. As true Southerners let our agency shine bright!

  1. The creation of micro Dixie ethno-city-states in small towns throughout the Black Belt and other de-populated areas which have lots of real estate up for sale at low prices. A couple families or a few individuals could easily start such a project, buying a few cheap buildings in the middle of a small Southern town and then publicizing their effort to bring in other Southern Nationalists. It wouldn’t take millions to get this project off the ground. Eventually we want an Orania of our own. In fact, we want several of them, but that will take a while. With a Southern Orania you would get to live your Dixie ethno-state dreams now while building for the future and inspiring our folk.
  2. Erect small monuments to Southern Nationalist heroes like Rhett, Fitzhugh, Hampton, Miles, etc. on private property in Southern areas. If they are on private property we won’t have to battle the Left in a few years as they pressure truecons to take them down. They could become focal points for SN tourism. And they could red-pill locals with real Southern Nationalism. All it would take would be to buy a small plot of land along a road somewhere, raise a little money to build the monument and then publicize it. Specifically, I would focus on the Fire-Eaters and Redeemers to get the most red-pill bang for the buck. This will make the point tat Southern heritage and identity is about more than a 4 year war which we lost.
  3. Set up an app for cell phones which direct people to Southern Nationalist sites of interest, such as the Secession Oak or the Maxy-Rhett House. It would be nice perhaps if this worked with/like popular map apps.
  4. Create a “Confederate Street” Youtube account where you make short videos of all the Confederate or Southern themed streets across Dixie. This would only cost you a little time and gas sheckles.
  5. Start a militant SN band that incorporates native Southern music and SN politics. Our podcasts constantly need new music (look at Cybernazi) and this project could potentially start a SN music underground – which we need.
  6. Create a pro-Dixie PAC that would donate sheckles to candidates who support our heritage and identity and are good on immigeation. This would be a big project but could start very small. Fundraising is easier than ever these days. Who knows – the PAC might eventually evolve into an SN party.
  7. Start an SN podcast focused on your region, city or state. Identity Dixie is a platform for hosting such SN podcasts.
  8. Set up a Church of Dixie which would be modeled on the old Anglican church which was the established religion in each of the original Southern colonies but in none of the non-Southern colonies. This would be a huge project but could start small. There are lots of pro-Dixie Christian leaders in the South and we need a religious home now that our main denominations have cucked so hard. This would need to be a very broad church with plenty of room for both high and low church services.
  9. This will seem obvious but it is the most important thing you can do: start a family with a Southern woman (assuming you are a man) and have as many children as you can support and raise well. Marry young rather than wasting your 20s on foolish nonsense like I did. Give your children good Anglo-Celtic names and raise them in our tradition with pride in their identity. Ultimately, if we survive as a distinct people in our own land we win.
  10. Start a small business with a Southern theme. We need to be more economically independent anyhow and ultimately able to support large families and able to employ fellow Southerners. A couple of decades ago I saw a report which studied the number of “Dixie” as opposed to “American” business names in the South. We were killing the competition then. One thing we definitely need are places where Southerners can socially gather in friendly environments: pubs, clubs, restaraunts and the like are needed. I would love to have a Dixie Pub nearby with a Confederate flag inside, Southern-themed art on the walls and a noticable lack of vibrant music.

Democrat Jon Ossoff on Jewish Identity & Liberal Values

Democratic Candidate Jon Ossoff is leading in the polls to take Georgia’s sixth congressional district in a special election this week. If so, the voters of the Atlanta suburb can expect to be represented by a Russian Jew with liberal values he attributes to his ethnic identity and upbring.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports:

One candidate has the endorsement of a civil rights giant. Another boasts that he changes his oil in his pickup truck. A third coached soccer at the local community center.

It’s politics as usual in Georgia, except that these three candidates – among the 18 running in the special election on April 18 in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District — are Jewish.

…The election is atypical, however, in two ways: Democrats see it as their first opportunity to wound President Donald Trump, and the presence of the Jewish candidates, notably Jon Ossoff, a Democrat attracting national media attention as the likeliest to pull off an upset.

That one-sixth of the candidates are Jewish in the 6th is something of an anomaly, said Steve Oppenheimer, a businessman who backs Ossoff.

“What are we, 2 percent nationwide?” asked Oppenheimer, who has served on the national boards of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and Hillel. “If we were twice that here – and that may be a stretch – we [Jewish voters] are not going to be the swing vote.”

Not that Ossoff, a scholarly and serious 30-year-old, is reluctant to chat about his Jewish upbringing if he is asked.

“I was bar mitzvahed at The Temple, which is a Reform synagogue,” he told JTA, somewhat didactically. “My Jewish upbringing imbued me with certain values, a commitment to justice and peace.”

The article continues in this manner, touting Ossoff’s Jewish heritage and identity and his work to welcome Muslim immigrants into Georgia. It also highlights the ethnic loyalty of fellow Jews in the area and their activism on his behalf.

Sheri Labovitz, a longtime Democratic activist, has not formally endorsed Ossoff among the five Democrats running, but she believes he has momentum.

“He’s got a machinery working with him that has some very good research, he’s got bodies knocking on doors every day and every weekend,” she said. “If you can turn your voters out, you’ve got a great shot.”

And Labovitz said Jewish interest is unexpectedly strong. She expected perhaps 30 people to show up last month at a salon she organized for Jewish Democratic women that featured Ossoff and two other candidates: Ron Slotin, a former state senator who also is Jewish, and Sally Harrell, a former state representative who has since withdrawn. Instead, 200 people packed the room.

Ossoff said he was wowed by the turnout.

“Jewish women are leading a lot of the political engagement in the community,” he told JTA.

…He turned up at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on the Saturday night that Trump’s first executive order banning refugees and other travelers from Muslim-majority countries went into effect, and identifies with them as a matter of heritage.

“American Jews all share that immigrant story,” he said, “and that perspective hardens my resolve to fight for an open and optimistic vision of our country where if you work hard you can get ahead, where we welcome those who come here to build the country.”

Ossoff also signals familiarity with the Middle East. His campaign biography notes that when he was at Georgetown, he studied under Michael Oren, the historian and former Israeli ambassador to Washington. Oppenheimer, Ossoff’s backer, says as a congressional aide the candidate helped draft Iran sanctions, but also is quick to note that Ossoff had left the job by the time Democrats were backing the Iran nuclear deal that so riled AIPAC.

A win by someone like Ossoff would have been impossible a few years ago but anti-White demographic trends have seen the district fill full of foreign immigrants. Thankfully, Salon reports that he will likely not win 50% of the vote Tuesday, sending the top two candidates to a run-off which would favor the Republicans. It seems sure to be close though.

NOTE: Clearly, Ossoff is not of the Southern Sephardic Jewish stock that supported slavery, the Confederacy and segregation. They seem to be an almost an extinct breed in the New (Anti-) South.

Anti-White Demographics Trends Favor Ossoff in GA Special Election

The replacement of Whites by non-White immigrants in Georgia’s sixth congressional district in the suburbs of Atlanta are favoring Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff in this week’s special election. Ossoff, a Russian Jew and fimmaker, will compete for Tom Price’s former seat in a district Donald Trump won by a tiny margin in November.

Politico reports on the anti-White trends and the out of state money behind Ossoff’s candidacy:

[I] this district, once represented by Tom Price, Johnny Isakson, and Newt Gingrich, fully 21 percent of residents are foreign born. When Newt Gingrich was elected there in 1992, more than 90 percent of the residents were white; now 70 percent are. And large sections of the sixth are majority-minority, Enjeti points out. “There are subdivisions out here that are entirely Asian, or Southeast Asian, with only one or two white families,” she says.

Ossoff has raised a staggering and record setting $8.3 million from more than 200,000 donors around the country

With a war chest of $8.3 million – closer to what it might take to run a statewide Senate campaign in Georgia, not to vie against 17 others for a suburban seat — Ossoff’s exposure is reaching almost absurd levels. In a regular election, a candidate might run spots on five or six radio stations; Ossoff’s blanketed 20 stations in metro Atlanta, including country, Korean language— even conservative talk.

…Opponents are trying to make much of the fact 95 percent of Ossoff’s haul comes from out-of-state donors.

The article continues, hailing the change from a wealthy White suburb to a little United Nations project that may be won by a previously unknown Left-wing candidate propped up by big money from out of state liberals.

“This is not what people expect to find in the suburbs of a Southern city,” says Enjeti, who grew up in Chattanooga. “But we represent the trend of what the country is going to look like.

This is the New South, the Anti-South: foreign, Leftist, and led by globalists who can rely on a network of out-of-Dixie support that disenfranchises native White Southern conservatives. This is why we must have a free Southern ethno-state of, by and for the Southern people.

Hewatt: Why Negro Slaves in Carolina?

In the series The Evolution of White Supremacy in Carolina we have explored the development of racial consciousness in the plantation culture of the Lower South and how this led to a system of legal and cultural White supremacy. However, some readers have repeatedly questioned the decision by the White settlers of the Southern frontier to employ African slaves.

In discussing this issue of why the Negro was used in the South let us turn to the work of Alexander Hewatt (or Hewat) a Scottish Presbyterian minister in Charleston, SC, loyalist to the British crown and the first historian of the Lower South. In his famous book An Historical Account of the Rise and Progress of the Colonies of South Carolina and Georgia (1779) we find an account of the danger of the environment to European man and the comparative fitness of the African for work in the Lowcountry and a passionate objection to slavery on the grounds of Christian morality and Enlightenment era abstractions about universal liberty and equality:

With the introduction of rice planting into this country, and the fixing upon it as its staple commodity, the necessity of employing Africans for the purpose of cultivation was doubled. So laborious is the task of raising, beating, and cleaning this article, that though it had been possible to obtain European servants in numbers sufficient for attacking the thick forest and clearing grounds for the purpose, thousands and ten thousands must have perished in the arduous attempt. The utter inaptitude of Europeans for the labour requisite in such a climate and soil, is obvious to every one possessed of the smallest degree of knowledge respecting the country ; white servants would have exhausted their strength in clearing a spot of land for digging their own graves, and every rice plantation would have served no other purpose than a burying ground to its European cultivators. The low lands of Carolina, which are unquestionably the richest grounds in the country, must long have remained a wilderness, had not Africans, whose natural constitutions were suited to the clime and work, been employed in cultivating this useful article of food and commerce.

Hewatt argues that racial differences made the African more suitable for working the Lowcountry’s rice plantations. His approach to the question was one of common sense about the physical fitness of the races to a particular climate and type of labor.

Interestingly, Hewatt claims that plenty of White labor was available – a claim generally disputed by most historians who write of a labor shortage in a virgin frontier.

Then he continues, diving into universalist Enlightenment arguments about equality and freedom:

So much may be said for the necessity of employing Africans in the cultivation of rice ; but great is the difference between employing negroes in clearing and improving those rich plains, and that miserable state of hardship and slavery to which they are there devoted, and which has been tolerated and established by the law of the land. If we view this race, first ranging over the hills of Africa, equally free and independent as other rude nations on earth, and from thence inveigled by fraud, or compelled by force, and then consigned over to a state of endless slavery, we must confess the change is great and deplorable, especially to an impartial and disinterested eye. Without them, it is acknowledged, slow must have been the progress of cultivation in Carolina; but from such a consideration, what man will presume to vindicate the policy of keeping those rational creatures in perpetual exile and slavery. Nature had given them an equal right to liberty as to life, and the general law of self-preservation was equally concerned for the preservation of both. We would be glad then to know, upon what principle of equity and justice the English traders found their right to deprive the freeborn in habitants of Africa of their natural liberty and native country ; or on what grounds the planter afterwards founds his right to their service during life, and that of all their posterity, to the latest generation. Can the particular laws of any country supersede the general laws of nature? Can the local circumstances of any province upon earth be pled in excuse for such a violent trade, and for such endless slavery in consequence of it? Besides, has not this trade a tendency to encourage war and plunder among the natives of Africa ? to set one tribe against another, to catch and trepan their neighbours, on purpose to barter them for European trinkets to the factories? Nor is the traffic confined to the captives of war alone, who have been subjected to slavery by many nations ; for so ardently do they covet the pernicious liquors and trifling commodities carried to them from Europe, that, without scruple they will part with their nearest relations, their wives and children not excepted, to procure them. Thus civilized nations, by such a traffic, have made barbarians more barbarous, and tempted them to commit the most cruel and unnatural actions.

Nothing can be more evident, than that such a trade is tolerated and carried on in violation of the grand rule of equity prescribed to Christians.

Notice here that Hewatt dispenses with both his previous observations on racial realism and with the traditional view of English liberty which continued to develop in Carolina and had nothing to do with universalism or equality. He presents three arguments against African slavery:

  1. Negroes as “rational creatures” have an “equal right to liberty.” Hewett claims that the change from their native paleolithic-like lifestyle in Africa to their labor helping to build civilization on a new continent was “deplorable.”
  2. Africans as barbarians who sell their own relatives into slavery are made more barbarous by the slave trade.
  3. Christian morality requires equality and forbids slavery.

Needless to say, Hewatt’s arguments were not persuasive to Southerners or English planters in the Caribbean. Theirs was an identitarian liberty which was inegalitarian and rooted in the traditional rights of Englishmen – not in radical Enlightenment era universal propositions. As Hunter Wallace has explained, “Liberty was an ethnic marker, not an abstraction.” It certainly did not extend to primitive alien peoples. And the Christian religious tradition, which had grown up during a time of various forms of slavery and servitude, fit well with the plantation culture. In fact, Southerners routinely defended African slavery on Christian grounds.

In short, African slavery in Carolina was chosen because there was a need for workers who were physically resistant to the environmental challenges of the Lowcountry. British-Barbadian settlers were familiar with Negro slaves and their labor in the Caribbean. They were not troubled with universal abstractions about the rights of all human beings. Their concept of liberty was tribal and traditional – liberty was a privilege and inequality was a fact. They saw a need and met that need with the resources available while taking prudent measures to ensure the safety and purity of their people.

The Evolution of White Supremacy in Carolina (part IV)

During the early to mid 1700s South Carolina receieved lots of horrifying news of racial violence and slave uprisings in the Caribbean. Carolinians were already concerned about the alarming number of Blacks in their colony and the precarious situation for White families in the rice growing areas, in particular. It is evident from newspaper reports and other writings from the time that they developed a sense of racial solidarity with Whites of French, Spanish and other European backgrounds as they struggled in racial conflict in the Americas and Africa.

Racial consciousness continued to strengthen throughout this period as more laws were passed to regulate the activity of Blacks in Charleston and specifically limit their economic competition with poor Whites – which would have hurt efforts to recruit more Europeans into the colony. Licenses were created for various Negro economic pursuits, such as fishing. The money raised went directly to the defense of the town. Dr. Peter Wood in his book Black Majority: Negroes in Colonial South Carolina from 1670 through the Stono Rebellion (1974) writes:

The owners of slaves sent out as carters and porters paid a weekly sum for the privilege, and every Negro fisherman was charged £5 per annum for a license. Each received a numbered badge for identification, and the fees were used in support of the town watch. At the same time pressure mounted against the participation of slaves in a variety of skilled crafts. The Negro Act of 1735 imposed a fine of £50 upon any master who allowed slaves to maintain any “houses of entertainment or trade,” whether in their own names or under his protection, and two years later a protest was issued against the “too common Practice” of barbers, many of whom were Negroes, shaving customers on Sundays. During the reappraisals which followed in the wake of the Stono Uprising, a “Committee appointed to consider the most effectual Measures to bring into this Province white Persons to increase our Strength and Security” reported to the Assembly “that a great Number of Negroes are brought up to and daily employed in mechanic Trades both in Town and Country.” The committee recommended a statute “prohibiting the bringing up [of] Negroes and other Slaves to mechanic Trades in which white Persons usually are employed,” but a formal prohibition was not enacted until 1755 and appears never to have been totally enforced. As suggested in the previous chapter, pressures exerted against Negroes in the trades were paralleled by efforts to curb Negro involvement in the commerce of the province.

Dr. Wood also writes that efforts were increasingly made to separate by race various jobs that had previously been done by Whites and Blacks. Trash collection, for example, was set aside for Negro slaves. This meant that working class Whites didn’t have to directly compete with Black slaves for jobs. As we have seen from previous posts in this series, the colony had already started to strongly discourage freed Blacks from settling in Carolina. Another practical benefit of these measures was that they limited the circumstances in which miscegenation might arise.

We can see from actions taken by the colonial regime that the era in question was one in which White racial consciousness continued to organically strengthen. Also evident was the patriarchal spirit of the plantation culture and an emphasis on providing a demographic future and maintaining indefinite White political control of the colony.

Le Pen’s Campaign HQ Bombed

The Paris campaign headquarters of leading French nationalist presidential candidate Marine Le Pen was attacked with a gasoline bomb last night.

ABC News reports:

The Paris fire department says no one was injured in the incident overnight Thursday and the blaze was quickly extinguished. The device hit an insurance office on the ground floor where Le Pen’s campaign is based.

An investigation is underway. Police say vandals also scrawled graffiti targeting Le Pen’s anti-immigration National Front party.

Le Pen said on France-2 television Thursday that she suspects extreme-left activists in the incident, but said that her campaign has not been contacted by investigators.

Recently, Le Pen has been in the news for condemning Trump’s attack upon the Syrian government. She was also denounced by the Israeli government for her remarks about restoring French pride and moving away from historical guilt associated with the Holocaust.

Trump Abandons Numerous Campaign Pledges

After getting out to a promising start in which the US President Donald Trump seemed serious about fulfilling campaign pledges, every day now seems to bring another broken campaign pledge from the White House. These broken promises are not limited to just the u-turn on Syria or Trump’s refusal to label China a currency manipulator.

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump is abandoning a number of his key campaign promises on economic policy, adopting instead many of the centrist positions he railed against while campaigning as a populist.

Trump will not label China a “currency manipulator,” he told the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, despite a campaign pledge that he would apply the label on his first day in office. He also said he was open to reappointing Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet L. Yellen after saying last year that the central banker should be “ashamed” of what she was doing to the country.

And he embraced the Export-Import Bank, a government agency that he mocked last year and that has long been despised by conservatives who labeled it crony capitalism.

The article then speaks of Trump’s betrayal on Syria and his abandonment of isolationism and an America First foreign policy.

Trump has also sharpened his criticism of Russia, a major break from the praise he lavished on Russian President Vladimir Putin during the campaign.

Also on Wednesday, Trump praised the work of NATO, a pact between the United States and some of its closest allies that Trump once called “obsolete.”

“It was once obsolete; it is no longer obsolete,” he said Wednesday after meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Trump’s changes are catching lawmakers, business executives, supporters, critics and even markets off guard. The U.S. dollar slumped and Treasury bond yields fell after the Wall Street Journal quoted Trump saying the dollar was too strong.

The rapid shuffle of priorities comes as he adopts a growing number of centrist policies, many of which the Obama administration tried to advance amid heated GOP opposition for years.

CNN reports on “Trump’s stunning u-turns on NATO, China, Russia and Syria”:

It was almost as if Donald Trump’s outsider presidential campaign never happened Wednesday as he rushed to embrace establishment political and national security positions he once publicly abhorred.

Within a few hours of extraordinary political shape-shifting, Trump abandoned stances that were at the bedrock of his establishment-bashing campaign. NATO, he said, is “no longer obsolete.” And he backed down a threat to brand China a currency manipulator.

The article then discusses his reversal of position on Syria, China and Federal Reserve Chairman (((Janet Yellen))).

It was not clear whether Trump’s sudden policy flips were the product of a new outlook and worldview. But previous presidents have often remarked that the world looks a lot different from the Oval Office than from a campaign rally.

It may not be a coincidence that Trump’s adoption of conventional political positions came the day after a stunning interview with the New York Post in which he publicly criticized his political guru Stephen Bannon, his insurgent, populist political conscience.

CNN notes that Trump has not yet abandoned his campaign pledge on immigration. But one has to wonder, given the mounting heap of broken pledges, if that is next.

This administration increasingly looks like a disaster. Trump appears to be the ultimate con.

‘Fearless Girl’: The Politics of Women in Leadership

There is a highly symbolic face-off taking place between the backers of the “Fearless Girl” and “Charging Bull” statues on Wall Street in New York City. The Washington Post reports on how “Italian-born sculptor Arturo Di Modica spent two years welding a 7,000 pound bronze bull statue designed to capture the resilience of the American people.” But then feminist activists got involved, seeking to use Di Modica’s iconic statue in order to push their own political agenda:

[L]ast month, on International Women’s Day, a new statue of a symbolically brave “Fearless Girl” stole its spotlight — and, Di Modica says, fundamentally corrupted the artistic integrity of his “Charging Bull.”

As “Fearless Girl” was heralded by many as a symbol for female empowerment, Di Modica doled out sharp criticism, casting the statue as not art, but a publicity stunt by the gender-oriented company that commissioned it.

He forcefully advocated against a global campaign to make “Fearless Girl” a permanent fixture, but fans persevered, persuading New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to extend the statue’s permit through April 2018.

In case someone might miss the political message of the statue, a plaque below it reads, “Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes the difference.”

So let’s take a look at what the power of women in leadership positions means – specifically what issues women prioritize in voting. Pew Research Center reveals that there are significant differences between the sexes:

[W]omen are more likely to emphasize certain issues, including the treatment of racial and ethnic minorities, the environment, the issue of abortion and the treatment of gay, lesbian and transgender people.

Women place a higher level of importance on the treatment of racial and ethnic minorities than men do (69% of women say this is very important, compared with 56% of men).

…While abortion and the treatment of gay, lesbian and transgender people rank as lower-tier issues for both men and women, women are more likely to say these issues are important to their vote in the fall: 52% of women say the issue of abortion will be very important to their vote this fall, compared with just 38% of men. Similarly, 49% of women say that the treatment of gay, lesbian and transgender will be very important in their decision of who to vote for; only 32% of men say the same.

We have long known of the sex difference at the polls. Now we know what helps to drive that difference.

In Pew Research Center data dating to 1992, women have been consistently more likely than men to identify as a Democrat or lean toward the Democratic Party. Over the first half of 2016, 54% of women identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party, compared with 42% of men. In 2008 and 2000 – the last two presidential elections with no incumbent candidate – there was a similar difference between men and women in Democratic affiliation.

In 2016 Trump changed this somewhat as hot-button social issues like abortion and gay marriage took a back seat to trade, terrorism and immigration. White women turned out for Trump, much to the chagrin of liberals such as Sarah Ruiz-Grossman. Hillary Clinton won White college-educated women 51-45 but lost non-college educated White women by a massive 62-34 margin. On the other hand, 94% of Black women voted for Clinton. In 2012 a nearly unanimous 96% of Black women voted for Obama.

If the US electorate were all-female White women without a college education would represent most of the Right-wing. But they would be soundly defeated at the polls by a coalition of college educated White women and non-White women. Essentially, “the power of women in leadership” – or at least deciding who the leaders are – to the degree it exists, means that liberalism is institutionalized. It means that abortion, homosexual rights and the empowerment of non-Whites become a big part of the agenda. It means that we become like Sweden.

ADL: Hateful Memes Attacking Kushner

Memes against US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and his efforts against Steven Bannon and in favor of another neo-con war for Israel in the Middle East have caught the attwntion of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an anti-White, Jewish supremacist organization.

The ADL writes:

An online campaign of anti-Semitism has been directed at Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor over the past week. It comes in the context of Trump’s removal of chief strategist Stephen Bannon from the National Security Council and reports about a feud between Bannon and Kushner as well as airstrikes in Syria in response to the chemical attack last week.

This campaign of anti-Semitism has been driven by white supremacists and anti-Semites and has all the hallmarks of classic Jewish conspiracy theories. The narratives include accusations that Jews in the Trump Administration are trying to start a war to advance the interests of Israel. They contend that Trump has abandoned his “America First” policy, which the alt right supported, because he is being manipulated by Kushner and other Jewish advisors.

The anti-Semitic social media campaign, which features hashtags on Twitter such as #firekushner, #kushneratwar, #kushnerswar, appears to have begun on April 5 with a few tweets describing the administration’s actions as a betrayal alongside the #firekushner hashtag.

We are proud to oppose Kusherner’s counter-productive neo-con war for Israel and the betrayal of Trump’s America First foreign policy.

Assad is Literally Hitler, Says Sean Spicer

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed Godwin’s Law IRL today, falling back upon the Neo-con tried-and-true method of comparing each and every foreign leader whose country they and their allies wish to bomb to Hitler. The New York Times reports:

Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, set off an intense backlash on Tuesday when he suggested that President Bashar al-Assad of Syria was worse than Hitler and said incorrectly that Hitler had not used chemical weapons during World War II or against his own people.

Mr. Spicer was attempting to lend gravity to the actions of Mr. Assad, who United States officials believe used sarin gas, a lethal chemical weapon, in an attack on a rebel-held area of Idlib Province last week that killed dozens.

Qaddafi was Hitler.

Saddam was Hitler.

Milosevic was Hitler.

Everyone is Hitler.

UPDATE: Spicer has apologized for offending the sacred memory of the Holocaust after Jewish groups attacked him for using the wrong words to support their war against Assad.

Scandal-Ridden Scalawag Robert Bentley is Jailed & Resigns

Alabama’s disgraced former Governor Robert Bentley (R) has resigned after being jailed for using State resources to cover up a sex scandal. ABC News reports:

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has resigned following allegations that he used state resources to cover up an affair he was having with one of his top aides.

Bentley, 74, was booked into a Montgomery County Jail Monday on charges of failing to file a major contribution report and knowingly converting campaign contributions to personal use, according to booking information on the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office website.

It is worth looking back at this man’s record as he is forced to step down. Surely, Alabamians will remember his traitorous actions in the summer of 2015.

NBC reminds us that Turncoat Bentley spat upon the heritage and people of his State when a little bit of Leftist pressure was applied:

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley ordered the four Confederate flags on the state Capitol grounds in Montgomery to be taken down Wednesday morning, NBC News has learned.

…Bentley told AL.com that his decision came, in part, as a response to the Charleston massacre as well as to avoid drawn-out political fights over the flag.

“This is the right thing to do. We are facing some major issues in this state regarding the budget and other matters that we need to deal with,” Bentley said. “This had the potential to become a major distraction as we go forward. I have taxes to raise, we have work to do. And it was my decision that the flag needed to come down.”

So the awful traitor Bentley is gone. He went out as a criminal, a traitor to his wife as well as the Southern people. He will hopefully be remembered with all due scorn for the scumbag which he is.

Le Pen Denounced by Israeli Government

Israel’s foreign minister has condemned French nationalist presidential candidate Marine Le Pen for saying France should not be blamed for rounding up and deporting Jews to Germany during World War II.

Reuters reports:

Far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has touched a raw nerve in France by denying the French state’s responsibility for a mass arrest of Jews in Paris during World War Two.

…”I think France isn’t responsible for the Vel d’Hiv,” Le Pen said in a French media interview on Sunday, referring to the July 16, 1942 German-ordered roundup by French police of 13,000 Jews in Paris.

…”We have taught our children that they had every reason to criticize France, to see only the darkest historical aspects perhaps. I want them to be proud of being French once more,” she said in the interview with media organizations Le Figaro, RTL and LCI.

And right on queue… Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports:

Israel condemned far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen for saying that her country is not responsible for the deportation of thousands of Jews to death camps in 1942.

“This declaration is contrary to historical truth, as expressed in the statements of successive French presidents who recognized France’s responsibility for the fate of the French Jews who perished in the Holocaust,” Israel’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement issued on Monday, a day after Le Pen made the statement during an interview in Paris for the RTL network and Le Figaro daily newspaper.

The ministry’s statement also said: “This recognition underpins the annual events marking the anniversary of the expulsion of the Jews from France and the study of the Holocaust in the education system, both of which are important elements in the battle against anti-Semitism, which unfortunately is once again raising its head.”

Notice that France, much like the USA, Germany and the UK, has institutionalized self-loathing and historical guilt. Le Pen’s talk about eliminating that was immediately taken as a threat by the globalists.

Sweden Democrats Surge in Polls

The Sweden Democrats, a moderate nationalist party which campaigns against mass Third World immigration and multiculturalism, has surged into either first or second place in the polls, depending upon which you believe.

Reuters reports they are at 19%:

The anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats have overtaken the center-right Moderates and are the second most popular party in the Nordic country, polls showed this week.

Growing worries about immigration in Sweden, which received a record 160,000 refugees in 2015, have boosted support for the Sweden Democrats, echoing the rise of populist parties across Europe.

The party got 19.2 percent support in a poll published on Thursday by Novus for Swedish Television, up from 18.5 percent a month ago. That compares with the 13 percent they polled in the general election in 2014.

The Independent reports even more positive results from YouGov putting them at 23.9%:

The anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats are the most popular political party in the Nordic country, according to a new poll.

The YouGov poll showed nearly a quarter – 23.9 per cent – of people said they would vote for the party if an election were held now, meaning its support is at nearly double the level of what it was during 2014’s general election.

…YouGov has had the Sweden Democrats ahead of their government rivals for most of the last six months, though Reuters reported that a separate poll on Thursday found the party had 19.2 per cent support, making it the second most popular.

The next national election in Sweden must be held on or before September of 2018. Much like the situation for nationalists in the Netherlands, France and Germany, the other major parties have pledged not to form a coalition with the Sweden Democrats.

The hashtag slogan #FireKushner has caught on as a way to protest the negative influence of Trump’s unelected globalist son-in-law.

It is now abundantly apparent that we also need to start using the hashtag slogan #FireNikkiHaley.

Business Insider reports:

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in an interview that she sees regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administration’s priorities in the country wracked by civil war.

…The comments represented a departure from what Haley had said before the United States hit a Syrian air base with 59 Tomahawk missiles on Thursday in retaliation for what it said was a chemical weapons attack by Assad’s forces on Syrian civilians.

As governor of South Carolina Haley led the push against the Confederate flag and Southern heritage. She bragged on television about her anti-Southern stand and was praised by the cuckservative leaders of the Republican Party as a “rising star” for what she did.

Haley, an Indian immigrant, identifies globalism and universalism with Americanism. She campaigned against Donald Trump in the GOP primary and has sought to undermine his “America First” foreign policy and re-align it with McCain-Graham-Kristol-style neo-conservatism as Trump’s UN ambassador.

I write this as a South Carolinian. She was bad news for my State and has already proven herself to be a problem at the UN. She never should have been given a job in the Trump Administration. She has done nothing but cause trouble. She was an awful governor of South Carolina who fought against the interests of the White Christian Southern voters who put her in office. And now she is doing her best in partnership with Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Jared Kushner to bog the USA down in another needless and costly war for Israel in the Middle East. She needs to go.

AfD Leader Petry: Multicultural Societies Are Like Compost Heaps

Frauke Petry, head of the Alternative for Germany party (AfD), which has campaigned on an anti-immigration platform and won seats in states parliaments across the country, is in the headlines for likening nations full of Third World immigrants and refugees to piles of compost.

The Independent reports:

The leader of Germany’s main right-wing party is facing a backlash after comparing multicultural societies with migrants and refugees to a “compost heap”.

…Speaking in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg for German Unity Day on Monday, Ms Petry attacked calls for diversity from other German political parties, in comments which have been labelled by some local media as arguing for an ethically homogenous nation.

According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung she said: “What are we to think of these ‘Germany is colourful campaigns?’ A compost heap is also colourful.”

…Set up three years ago, the AfD has been buoyed by Europe’s migrant crisis and the party’s success has been attributed to its hard anti-immigration stance in contrast to Ms Merkel’s refugee-friendly policy which has inspired widespread opposition.

In other news an Uzbek immigrant has been arrested in Sweden for the recent terrorist attack in Stockholm which killed 4 people and injured 15 others. Compost heap? You bet.

Le Pen & Putin Denounce Trump’s Attack on Syria

Marine Le Pen, head of the National Front party in France, said that she was shocked by US President Donald Trump’s air strikes against Syria. The nationalist leader had previously praised Trump and been quick to congratulate him upon his electoral victory over Hillary Clinton. But his reversal of policy on Syria was “strongly condemned” by Le Pen who described the attack as “horrible.”

According to polls, Le Pen has a narrow lead for the first round of the French presidential election which will take place later this month. She appears likely to head to the second round of voting (where the top two candidates will compete head-to-head) where polls suggest establishment voters of the Center-Right will side with Socialists and Communists to defeat her. Regardless, Len Pen is already a major player in European politics and seems set to score better than nationalists have in France in generations.

Le Pen recently met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a key ally of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. He said that the French nationalist leader represented a “fast-growing element” of European politics. Putin described Trump’s attack on Syria as an “illegal act of aggression.” Russia has strongly supported Assad’s pro-Christian regime as it has battled to defeat US-backed Islamic terrorists seeking to overthrow the government.

‘Black Pills’ on Syria From World’s Worst People

Some of the most powerful and worst people on this planet (Hillary Clinton, Lindsey Graham, John Kerry, John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Angela Merkel, Theresa May, Nikki Haley, etc.) are praising Donald Trump’s attack upon Syria.

Here is a huge dose of black pill headlines, fam. Try not to overdose.

NY Magazine: ‘Perfect Sense’ for Alt-Right to Abandon Trump

Jesse Singal argues in a recent New York Magazine article that “all of this should be seen not as a shocking parting of ways, but as a sensible move for the media personalities of the alt-right. Renouncing Trump, and eventually abandoning him, might actually be the most advantageous play for alt-right celebrities trying to maintain their peculiar online kingdoms, while handling the weird ramifications of having won.”

Singal conflates the Alt-Lite (Paul Joseph Watson and Mike Cernovich) with the Alt-Right and gives three reasons we are parting ways with Trump over his missile strikes against Syria’s military:

1) It gets us attention. Here Singal is correct if we are talking about the Alt-Lite and Watson and Cernovich. Singal correctly points out that “They are constantly growing their brands, growing their followers, and trying to poke their way into every conversation.” Cernovich is first and foremost a brand – a way for him to make money and get attention. He has jumped from one thing (Gamergate, manosphere, Alt-Lite) to another to get followers. That is not us. Sure, we want to spread our views and see them gain popularity with the public. But we do so as believers in our cause, not to make money. We work real jobs, support our families and promote Right-wing identity politics in our spare time because we believe in the message. We are not primarily a commercial brand.

2) It allows us to stay in the opposition. This is incorrect. We always based our support of Trump on what he could do for us in restricting immigration, breaking political-correctness taboos, protecting our industries and jobs, promoting identity politics for Whites and opposing the Neo-cons’ foreign policy. We want to win on these points. The prospect of winning animated us. We were excited about defeating our enemies. Unlike the cuckservatives we do not like losing for “muh principles.” Having Hillary or Jeb in office would be better for us if we just wanted to be in opposition to everything the US president did. We agree with them on practically nothing.

3) It feeds our narrative on Jewish control of the System. Singal is basically correct on this. Trump campaigned on an openly anti-globalist platform and then surrounded himself with globalists (both Jews and mainstream globalist GOPers like Nikki Haley) once in office. We never expected pure nationalist leadership from Trump but to say that he has been a disappointment of late would be a gross understatement.

CONSISTENCY

The big point that Singal misses is that our opposition to Trump’s attack on Syria is consistent and principled. I opposed the US war against White Christian Serbia in the 90s which made the Balkans safe for Muslim expansion and terror. I opposed the US war against Iraq which destabilized the country, took out a secular leader who kept the radical Islamists down and unleashed an awful civil war. I opposed US attacks on Libya that took out a secular leader who was holding back the African hordes who wanted to flood into Europe. I opposed US intervention in Syria on behalf of the so-called “moderate rebels” (ISIS). That intervention led to a civil war, the migrant crisis in Europe and the expansion of ISIS. It also toppled a Christian-friendly, Western-educated and moderate leader who held the country together and was helping to make it prosperous. None of these wars were good for us or in any way bettered our lives. And none of the alleged bad guys (Serbia, Iraq, Libya or Syria) was a danger to us here.

We have long opposed US intervention on behalf of Muslim radicals and the Neo-con agenda of taking out Israel’s potential competitors in the region in the name of “spreading democracy.” The wars mentioned above were a massive waste of blood and treasure. This is not to say that we are against war in any and all cases, but we are against wars for Israel, wars to spread democracy and wars to line the pockets of the military-industrial elites. The Alt-Right grew out of that opposition and its present position against Trump’s aggression is principled and consistent.

Alt-South: The Code of Chivalry

Southern conservative intellectual and professor Richard Weaver wrote in The Southern Tradition at Bay: A History of Postbellum Thought (1968):

A part of the Southern heritage which deserves more attention of the serious kind than it has received is expressed by the term chivalry. Modern spite against all assumptions of superiority has assigned it a comic role; actually it was an institution of strong and, on the whole, good influence. Since chivalry has been one of the main traditions of European civilization, it was not strange that a chivalric code should develop in the South, which was disposed to accept rather than reject European institutions.

Notice that Weaver connects chivalry to inequality and European civilization. This makes it of possible interest for the Alt-Right – and certainly for those of the Alt-South. Weaver continues:

In Europe during the Middle Ages it had existed as a body of forms and sentiments of enormous power in elevating and refining civilization. It appears to have had its origin in the dark years following the dissolution of Charlemagne’s empire, when cruelty, rapine, and brutal anarchy so distressed men that there came a passionate reaction which enlisted men in the service of an ideal good, and later found a sanction in the Christian religion. The people recognized a class of knights as representatives of right and defenders of order, idealized them, crowned them with all virtues, both real and imaginary, and for five hundred years respected them as the ruling caste.

Does this not appeal to us as those who self-identity as Southern Nationalists or on the Alt-Right? Surely, we see ourselves as “representatives of right and defenders of order” in a fallen age of darkness. And, in general, our movement is a “passionate reaction” of “men in the service of an ideal good.”

Weaver then described how this European concept was adapted to Southern culture:

Of the characteristic ideas of chivalry, none came to a more exaggerated flowering in the South than that of personal honor. In the Old World chivalry supported a caste, the distinguishing mark of which was an honor that was to be preserved at all costs. In the South, as soon as the gentleman caste had established itself on property ownership and slave labor, this concept was invoked to set it apart from the commonalty. The gentleman was surrounded with prerogatives. He could not be injured with impunity; his motives could not be impugned; and above all, his word could not be questioned. A highly touchy sense of personal pride was built on these premises, and its vindication often called for the duel, a recognized institution in America from colonial days.

NOTE: As Hunter Wallace has explained, “[t]he Alt-South isn’t a membership organization. It is… a space for everyone in Dixie who isn’t some kind of leftist or mainstream conservative (i.e., nationalists, populists, reactionaries) to come together to discuss our past, present and common future. Southern Nationalists [are] at the core of the Alt-South.”

The Fairest Estate of Liberty

Lately, Hunter Wallace has written at length about the meaning of liberty in the Tidewater, Carolina and the Backcountry and how this concept had “nothing to do with classical liberalism, modern liberalism or libertarianism.”

Developing upon this idea, John Smith Preston, the son of a Virginia general who married in the wealthy Hampton family in South Carolina, was selected by his adopted State to be a Secession Commissioner to the Old Dominion. Preston was an attorney and a planter and also a member of the secessionist Minute Men in Columbia, SC. He was considered a great speaker and his presentation before a huge crowd in Richmond helped convince Virginia to secede from the Union. Preston noted that “the conflict between slavery and non-slavery is a conflict for life and death” for Southerners and that abolitionism would lead to the “annihilation” of his people. Charles B. Dew, professor of Social Science at Williams College, writes in Apostles of Disunion: Southern Secession Commissioners and the Causes of the Civil War:

The emotional climax of Preston’s address came toward the end. “Gentlemen of Virginia,” he called. The people of the South “are not canting fanatics, festering in the licentiousness of abolition and amalgamation; their liberty is not a painted strumpet, straggling through the streets; no does their truth need to baptize itself in pools of blood.” No, he cried, Southerners “are a calm, grave, deliberate and religious people, the holders of the most majestic civilization and the inheritors, by right, of the fairest estate of liberty.”

Preston continued from there to call upon Virginia to stand with the rest of the South in defense of its “sacred soil” and sovereign rights. But the above quote gets well at the concept of Southern liberty – a type of liberty which was not liberal and which had its roots in the ancient culture of Britain and developed among Southerners in their neo-classical New World civilization. Such liberty would likely be quite foreign to most Americans today.

The Evolution of White Supremacy in Carolina (part III)

Previously, we have seen how the colonial government of Carolina enacted legislation to discourage miscegenation among the lower classes of White servants and Indian and Black slaves. And we’ve seen how the government sought to prevent free Blacks from living in the colony and weakening the evolving racial caste system. These acts were largely successful and the number of free Blacks was kept to no more than 1% of the total African population and the mulattoes tended to be absorbed back into the larger Black population rather than becoming an independent social caste. This served to protect the White minority of the colony and preserve their racial purity.

Racial consciousness among Whites continued to grow slowly throughout the early 1700s as Carolinians increasingly turned to rice cultivation and imported more slaves directly from Africa (whereas previously most had come from Barbados). Dr. Peter Wood in his book Black Majority: Negroes in Colonial South Carolina from 1670 through the Stono Rebellion (1974) states that “in the face of a distinct majority of blacks, the apprehensions felt by white colonists gradually deepened. Concern stemmed first from a simple awareness of numbers, but it spread out to encompass a variety of ambiguities concerning the identity of the colony and the tenuous position of the Europeans who were ostensibly its masters.” Wood points out that, much like today, “Not even straightforward population awareness came easily.” This reminds one of the mentality of most Whites today in Europe and North America – they somehow seem able to diminish in their minds the danger posed by alien populations in their midst. But Wood notes that gradually awareness grew as the plantation system took root. And as it did, “The diminishing white fraction of the populace, which controlled the colony’s government and economy ever more securely with time, bound the Africans increasingly tightly to their servile status.”

Another aspect of the developing consciousness among Carolinians was a new appreciation for White men as the defenders of the colony. Previously, some Black slaves had been part of the militia. But Wood writes that increasingly there, arose from the tendency to measure white male adults against the entire black population.” He states:

This statistic took on increasing importance for European colonists as they felt themselves physically threatened by the number of Africans, and numerous population estimates after 1720, contrasting men on the muster rolls with all adults and children in the slave quarters, reflect the emerging concept of white manhood opposing a preponderant race. This explains why Von Reck stated in 1734 that “There are five Negroes to one White.” It also helps make understandable (although not correct) the assertion of a European in 1737 that “In Charleston and that neighborhood there are calculated to be always 20 blacks … to one white man,” as well as the claim of another visitor five years later that “the heathen slaves are so numerous here that it is estimated that there are fifteen for every white man.”

Even after framing the disproportion in its starkest form, white colonists faced the added realization that the slave population was being augmented annually while their own numbers scarcely rose. Indeed, an Anglican minister noted in 1725, “we have some reason to believe that we rather decrease than increase in the small number of Christian white inhabitants.” He went on to explain candidly, “As matters stand with us we make use of a wile for our present security to make the Indians and negros [sic] a check upon each other lest by their vastly superior numbers we should be crushed by one or the other.” Slaves, who had generally been taken as an asset in the thinly settled proprietary colony, were now viewed in part by whites as a liability.

Indeed, in 1720, it was declared that the colony was in “great disorder” and that the “whole Province was lately in danger of being massacred by their Own Slaves, who are too numerous in proportion to ye White Men there.” We have yet to explore this, but the colony provided incentives during this time to bring in more colonists (including Germans to help settle places such as Orangeburg, SC) and offset the growing Black population.

Taken as a whole, the early 1700s represented a time in which the colony was coming into its own as the plantation society its Barbadian founders had intended for it to be. As this occurred, the demographics of the colony shifted as more Africans were required to work the rice plantations along the rivers of the Lowcountry. This resulted in a growing sense of racial consciousness among the Whites of the colony as they sought to outlaw miscegenation and banish free Blacks. During this time White men were appreciated as never before since the colony depended upon their strength of arms for its survival.

It is easy to see how these trends contributed to the sense of racial consciousness commonly found among Southerners. Some of this consciousness has survived even into the current age. In future posts we will continue to look at how racial consciousness developed in Carolina and how these trends contributed to development of the Southern world-view.

The Evolution of White Supremacy in Carolina (part II)

We have already seen how the government of Carolina began legally discourging race-mixing among the lowest classe in the colony in the early 1700s. This arose as a response by colonial elites to social conditions created by the mixed labor system emplyed by masters before rice cultivation and Black slavery became entirely dominant in the Lowcountry.

Dr. Peter Wood in his book Black Majority: Negroes in Colonial South Carolina from 1670 through the Stono Rebellion (1974) writes that four years after the above law was passed the government acted to discourage free Blacks from living in the colony where they might mix with Whites or complicate and begin to break down the racial system:

Beyond the terms of manumission arranged between individual masters and servants, the government gradually imposed constraints of its own. Colonies which relied increasingly upon black slaves looked with growing disfavor upon free Negroes. In 1723 Virginia deprived them of the right to vote or possess firearms and imposed a discriminatory tax. Likewise, in South Carolina, where free Negroes had occasionally voted, directions for electing representatives to the Assembly made it explicit in 1721 that only “free White men” meeting the age and property qualifications could participate. The Negro Act passed the following year required that any freed slaves must leave the province within twelve months of receiving manumission or else forfeit their freedom, and a similar statute in 1735 added the provision that slaves manumitted “for any particular merit or service” who should return to the colony within seven years would also lose their freedom. The major Negro Act passed in 1740 after the Stono Rebellion relegated all criminal cases against free Negroes to the same second-class judicial process designed for slaves. It also made clear that any further manumissions were to depend upon a special act of the Assembly. Although this policy may not have been perfectly observed, individual grants of freedom remained scarce until the Revolutionary era, so that Negroes of free status do not appear ever to have exceeded 1 per cent of the black population during the half century when South Carolina was a royal colony. (During the 1760s, for example, there were never as many as two hundred free Negroes registered in the entire region.) Under the proprietorship before 1720 the few legally free blacks may have represented a slightly larger proportion of the Negro population, but their daily existence in the frontier colony could not have been dramatically different in many ways from that of their slave brothers.

This measure was greatly successful then. Miscegenation and the practice of masters freeing their favorite slaves would have created a large racially-mixed caste in the long-run as it did in the Caribbean and Brazil. It would have likely diluted the Whiteness of the average South Carolinian and created conditions favorable to revolution or the eventual breakdown of the racial system, endangering the colony.

What we see in studying the history of rhe evolution of White supremacy in Carolina is that the elites became increasingly aware of their White identity (as opposed to simply their national identity) and took steps to preserve it among all classes and strengthen the racial caste system which was developing. As the plantation system became dominant in the early to mid 1700s, race and identity became inseperable in Carolina.

NOTE: Here is a video I made back in 2013 of the Butler Island Plantation in Darien, Georgia. It was one of the largest rice plantations in Dixie and is now a beautiful park to visit.

Coastal Georgia was flooded buy Carolinians after the dying colony gave up on liberalism and embraced slavery and the plantation system – which quickly made it wealthy like its neighbor.

The Evolution of White Supremacy in Carolina

It may seem strange to write of the evolution of White supremacy in a colony founded by Barbadian planters who held strong racial views and hailed from a plantation society which served as the mother colony for the British Greater Caribbean. Add to this the fact that the Barbadian and other British West Indian colonists who settled Carolina had a marked preference for African labor. And the Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina gave the White planter “absolute power and authority over his negro slaves.”

Nevertheless, there was an organic process at work in which the racial realities of this mainland outpost of the Caribbean gave birth to legislation and social norms that over time came to define White supremacy in Carolina.

Dr. Peter Wood in his book Black Majority: Negroes in Colonial South Carolina from 1670 through the Stono Rebellion (1974) writes:

[I]t was not until 1717 that racial anxieties reached a level sufficient for legislative action. An act passed in that year “for the better governing and regulating white servants” made clear that “any white woman, whether free or a servant, that shall suffer herself to be got with child by a negro or other slave or free negro,… shall become a servant for … seven years.” If the woman was a servant, she had seven years added to her term, and if the begetter was a free Negro, he was made a servant for seven years. Moreover, according to the act, “the issues or children of such unnatural and inordinate copulation shall be servants until they arrive at the age of the male twenty one years and the females eighteen years.”

Though African slavery is more associated with early South Carolina than the early Chesapeake, it too used a mixed labor system in the beginning of White, Indian and Black workers. In those early years as the Proprietors and leading planters sought out a cash crop upon which to base the colony farming and raising cattle were leading industries. Servants and slaves of different races frequently worked beside or near each other. Thus, concern was first directed to discourage racial-mixing among these lowest classes.

As rice cultivation slowly came to dominate the South Carolina Lowcountry the Black population grew and by around 1708 Blacks were the majority in the colony. Slowly they displaced White servants and Indian slaves as the Barbadian-dominated planter class settled upon a cash crop which became as important to South Carolina as sugar was to Barbados.

We will continue to explore in future posts how White supremacy developed organically in the region during this time.
